Nigerian Muslims abduct 14-year-old girl and 3 others
After Muslim Fulani herdsmen failed to break into a pastor’s house, they abducted a 14-year-old girl and three others, reports the Christian Post.
When they demanded to enter the pastor’s home at 11:57pm last Thursday, Rev. Elisha Abu Dreams, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Kaduna State, said, “Immediately, l and my family started praying for divine intervention from God Almighty.”
After the Muslims were unable to break through the pastor’s gate, they broke into other nearby homes, abducting four people.
In the first six months of 2020, Muslims have killed 1,202 Christians. Muslim Fulani herdsmen are responsible for 812 of those murders.
Former NYC Mayor Giuliani backs Trump to uphold law & order
On Day 4 of the Republican National Convention, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani addressed the death of George Floyd and the response of the Radical Left.
GIULIANI: “The whole unprecedented wave of lawlessness began with a truly just cause: the unforgivable police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Peaceful protests began all over the land. The condemnation of the killing was universal from President Trump to Democrat leaders. It seemed for a few brief shining moments, Democrat and Republican leaders would come together with a unified proposal to reduce police misconduct.
“This possibility was very dangerous to the left. They had a president to beat and a country to destroy. Although an agreement on action against police brutality would be very valuable for the country, it would also make President Trump appear to be an effective leader. They could have none of that. So Black Lives Matter and Antifa sprang into action, and in a flash, they hijacked a peaceful protest into vicious brutal riots.”
Trump celebrates unborn babies & American exceptionalism
Last Thursday night, the Republican National Convention came to a dramatic conclusion on the South Lawn of the White House as President Trump warned America that Joe Biden is a trojan horse for socialism.
TRUMP: “If the left gains power, they will demolish the suburbs, confiscate your guns, and appoint justices who will wipe away your Second Amendment and other constitutional freedoms. Biden is a Trojan horse for socialism. If Joe Biden doesn’t have the strength to stand up to wild-eyed Marxists like Bernie Sanders and his fellow radicals, then how is he ever going to stand up for you? He’s not.”
President Trump pointed to the hypocrisy of Joe Biden’s pro-abortion position.
TRUMP: “Joe Biden claims he has empathy for the vulnerable, yet the party he leads supports the extreme late-term abortion of defenseless babies, right up until the moment of birth. Democrat leaders talk about moral decency, but they have no problem with stopping a baby’s beating heart in the ninth month of pregnancy. Democrat politicians refuse to protect innocent life, and then they lecture us about morality and saving America’s soul. Tonight, we proudly declare that all children, born and unborn, have a God-given right to life.” (applause and cheering)
Proverbs 6 describes the seven things that God hates including the shedding of innocent blood.
President Trump underscored the dramatic difference between his vision and Joe Biden’s vision.
TRUMP: “This is the most important election in the history of our country. There has never been such a difference between two parties or two individuals in ideology, philosophy, or vision than there is right now.
“Our opponents believe that America is a depraved nation. We want our sons and daughters to know the truth. America is the greatest and most exceptional nation in the history of the world. (applause) Our country wasn’t built by cancel culture, speech codes, and soul-crushing conformity. We are not a nation of timid spirits.
“We are a nation of fierce, proud, and independent American patriots. Americans have steel in their spines, grit in their souls, and fire in their hearts. There is no one like us on Earth.”
President Trump talked about our special heritage as a nation.
TRUMP: “Our American ancestors sailed across the perilous ocean to build a new life on a new continent. They braved the freezing winters, crossed the raging rivers, scaled the rocky peaks, trekked the dangerous forests, and worked from dawn till dusk. These pioneers didn’t have money. They didn’t have fame. But they had each other. They loved their families, they loved their country, and they loved their God. (applause) When opportunity beckoned, they picked up their Bibles, packed up their belongings, climbed into their covered wagons, and set out West for the next adventure.
“Americans build their future, we don’t tear down our past. (applause) We are the nation that won a revolution, toppled tyranny and fascism, and delivered millions into freedom. We laid down the railroads, built the great ships, raised up the skyscrapers, revolutionized industry, and sparked a new age of scientific discovery.
“Whenever our way of life was threatened, our heroes answered the call. From Yorktown to Gettysburg, from Normandy to Iwo Jima, American patriots raced into cannon blasts, bullets, and bayonets to rescue American liberty.”
And President Trump talked about America’s future if we re-elect him.
TRUMP: “And on November 3, we will make America safer. We will make America stronger. We will make America prouder. And we will make America greater than ever before. I am very, very proud to be the nominee of the Republican Party. I love you all. God bless you, and God bless America.”

Leftist D.C. mob targeted Senator Rand Paul on street
As Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky was leaving the South Lawn of the White House after President Trump’s speech, he and his wife Kelly became the target of left-wing violence as they walked back to their hotel, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
Appearing on Fox News, Senator Paul explained what happened.
PAUL: “We also saw a mob of about 30 people marching and yelling. And as they came closer, they were shouting my name and the crowd doubled to 60. And then it doubled again to 120. As they were surrounding us, the policemen were forming a barricade with their bodies. I whispered to the policeman, ‘They know who I am. You’ve got to get reinforcements. It’s going to get worse.’
“There were yelling threats. They were trying to push the police over to get to me they were grabbing at us. We had to try to get to the hotel, which was another block and they were shouting threats to us to kill us, to hurt us. These people were unhinged. I’m not sure we would have made it. They’re attempting to push the police over to get to me.
If you defund the police, if America becomes Portland, what’s going to happen is people are going to be pummeled and kicked in the head and left senseless on the curb. That would have happened to us, I promise you, had we not had the D.C. police to support us. We can’t have Joe Biden rule the country and have no police.”
Proverbs 28:5 says, “Evildoers do not understand what is right, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully.”

Michael Moore: Enthusiasm for Trump is “off the charts!”
Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore cautioned Democrats that the re-election campaign for President Donald Trump is picking up steam in key battleground states, reports NewsMax.com.
Trump has gained ground on Joe Biden in battleground states like Minnesota and Michigan which is lining up to give the president another come from behind win in November.
In a Facebook post Friday, Moore wrote:
“I’m warning you almost 10 weeks in advance. The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much. Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump.”
Biden’s lead has also decreased to three points in Arizona, North Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, according to a ReaClearPolitics index of polls.
NYC police spokesman explains why he endorsed Trump
Pat Lynch, the president of the New York City Police Benevolent Association which represents 24,000 cops in the nation’s largest police department, explained why his group has endorsed President Trump.
LYNCH: “It’s never been harder to be a police officer in this country. We look at the victims, the vulnerable, the regular working people who count on us. We keep strapping on our duty belts and bullet resistant vests because we know we can’t let them down. And while we do that, we hear the words of our president who says to police officers everywhere, I will never let you down.
“We know that he hasn’t. And we know that he won’t. We cannot afford to lose him. When it comes to your safety, your family safety and the safety of all Americans. There’s no other choice. You won’t be safe and Joe Biden’s America. We can have four more years of President Trump or you can have no safety, no justice, no peace.”
Elon Musk: New brain implant can cure blindness, quadiplegia
And finally, on Friday, Elon Musk unveiled a working prototype of his firm’s much-anticipated brain-implant device — which the billionaire tech tycoon believes can cure everything from blindness to quadriplegia, reports the New York Post.
The mind-bending invention — meant to achieve human “symbiosis with artificial intelligence” — removes a “coin-sized” piece of a person’s skull then injects a tiny chip to assist with the motor control and other functions.
The circular chip, injected near the ear, will also allow people to control phones or computers with their minds, according to Neuralink.
Elon Musk claimed “you can solve everything from memory loss to hearing loss and blindness.”
