President Trump Pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was rightly described as the toughest sheriff in America, known for housing inmates in tents in the Arizona heat, making them clean up the sides of littered highways in chain gangs, and refusing to allow them to watch cable tv in their cells other than C-SPAN.

Because he had taken aggressive action to arrest illegal immigrants, Arapaio was targeted by Democrats. In fact, after losing his bid for re-election in 2016, he was found guilty of a misdemeanor contempt-of-court charge in a trial that was prosecuted by Obama holdovers in the Justice Department, reports Fox news.

This past Friday, President Trump pardoned Sheriff Arpaio, calling him an “American patriot” in a later tweet.

Hillary Clinton Bashes Trump in Upcoming Book

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gets personal in her her latest memoir, “What Happened,” a book that tells “my story” about the 2016 presidential race.

In an MSNBC exclusive on “Morning Joe” last Wednesday, Clinton’s voice can be heard reading passages from her anticipated book, including one that details her experience during the October 9 presidential debate in St. Louis, where Trump stood behind Clinton while she answered a question.

“He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled.  No matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces.”

Just two days after the groping controversy hit the press with damaging audio spoken between then businessman Trump and Billy Bush for an Access Hollywood segment. In Hillary’s book which will be released on September 12th, she says she considered turning on Trump.

“Do you turn and look him in the eye and say, loudly and clearly, ‘Back up you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”

Thomas More Society Appeals Against Law Preventing Sidewalk Counseling

The Thomas More Society filed an appeal on August 21st with the United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals arguing against the Chicago bubble zone, a law that prevents sidewalk pro-life counselors from approaching within eight feet of anyone entering an abortion mill.

The plaintiff is arguing that the bubble zone restricts the counselors’ First Amendment rights. The World View spoke to Thomas Olp, Senior Counsel for the Thomas More Law Society, about why the bubble zone prevents those seeking an abortion from hearing all the options.

“We believe it’s unconstitutional because our sidewalk counselors need to approach a woman who is approaching the clinic, and they try to engage in normal low key conversation, in order to give that woman who’s an abortion minded woman, primarily, because they’re walking towards an abortion clinic, information about alternatives to abortion.”

Olp explained why the bubble zone law is unconstitutional.

“The Supreme Court has generally held that on public sidewalks, as an adult you are essentially in a position to be appealed to. Sidewalks are the traditional, quintessential forum for the expression of ideas. And abortion is a highly controversial issue. It’s very much in the public square.”

Proverbs 24:11 says, “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.”

Canada Allows Unspecified Sex on Passports

Starting this Thursday, Canadians will have a new way to identify their sex on passports and other government documents: In addition to the options of male and female, our northern neighbors will allow a third category, indicating an “unspecified” sex, reports the New York Times.

Franklin Graham Calls Football Coaches to Pray After Their Games

Evangelist Franklin Graham has called on high school football coaches across the country to kneel in prayer after their games this Friday, September 1st in response to a U.S. appeals court ruling against a public school football coach in Washington who was punished for kneeling in prayer at the 50-yard line after every game.

Graham took to his Facebook page last Friday morning to blast the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision Wednesday.

Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz Calls Americans to Humble Themselves Before God

Franklin’s sister, evangelist Anne Graham Lotz, has also spoken out, calling for a return to God, calling on Christians to pray for America during this time of division and darkness.

In a Facebook post last Thursday, Lotz wrote, “The atmosphere in our world is explosive. Toxic. Dark. Dangerous to the extreme. And at this very moment when our nation should be standing together against wickedness and lawlessness, we are seriously divided.”

“It’s time to ‘inquire of the Lord.’ Now! It’s time to humble ourselves and pray and seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways, so He will hear from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14).”

Communists in Hong Kong Persecute Christians and Supporters of Democracy

Derek Lam, a Christian studying theology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, says he will probably not be allowed to fulfill his dream of being a pastor, according to a column he wrote for The New York Times.

Lam, who is a member of the democratic political party, says his democratic activism in Hong Kong could possibly lead to his imprisonment next month. Two of his friends were recently put in prison for peaceful protests the group organized in 2014.

People in Hong Kong are being pushed to the side with the country’s communist views, Lam said.

It’s become so oppressive, the Communists have removed crucifixes from churches, bulldozed some churches, and last year, shockingly buried a pastor and his wife alive for trying to stop the destruction of their church.

Congress Running Out of Time to Pass Spending Bills

The possible need to give billions of dollars in Hurricane Harvey relief funds to Texas and nearby states could be an X-factor for Congress which is on recess until after Labor Day, reports Fox News.

The legislators will have less than four weeks upon its return to pass 12 spending bills to keep the government fully operational past Sept. 30. Their passage is already overdue.

Prisoners in North Carolina Get Opportunity to Study for the Ministry

According to The Christian Post, inmates at a men’s prison in North Carolina will now have the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree in pastoral ministry thanks to a new collaboration between the state government, the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Christian evangelistic outreach group named Game Plan for Life founded by NFL hall-of-famer Joe Gibbs which is dedicated to inspiring men.

The seminary will admit about 30 inmate-students into the program each year for the first four years. By year four, about 120 students will be participating in the program, reports The Raleigh News and Observer.

The program is designed so that inmates can counsel other inmates. And the program is only available for inmates that have an “extensive amount of time remaining on their sentence.” The seminary’s definition of “extensive” is 15 years or more.

Republicans Work to Pass Tax Reform

Republican lawmakers desperately want to show unity following weeks of bad headlines focused on President Donald Trump, and they’re hoping tax reform will do the trick, reports World Magazine.

After Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare, party leaders are feeling the pressure to chalk up a substantive legislative victory—the first under the Trump administration.

Optimists hope the GOP will finish writing the tax reform legislation by September 28, pass it through the House in October, and give it a final Senate blessing before Thanksgiving.

Woman Dies of Sepsis After Botched Abortion

Bud and Tara Shaver, who lead Abortion Free New Mexico, have documented that Keisha Atkins had died from a late-term abortion on February 4, 2017 at Southwestern Women’s Options abortion mill, reports Life News.

Atkins, who was at least six months pregnant, reported to the nation’s largest late-term abortion facility on January 31, 2017, to begin a four-day late-term abortion. Sometime during the ensuing days, something went wrong and Atkins developed a bacterial infection.

She was showing signs of a dangerous, systemic infection known as sepsis.

Operation Rescue believes her abortion was mismanaged by her eighty-year-old abortionist, Curtis Boyd, and fumbled by the University of New Mexico hospital where she died.

In fact, UNM’s own autopsy report described in detail compelling evidence that it was complications from the abortion process that killed Keisha Atkins – not her pregnancy.

North Korea Forcibly Aborts Babies of Women Returning to the Country reports that North Korea has been forcing pregnant women who return to the country to get abortions, even if it’s the result of Gestapo tactics.

According to Daily NK, a South Korean News site, “a female defector referred to as Jeon in her mid 20s, had been living in China for several years. She was repatriated in the middle of May. During the investigation, Captain Yong Chol Park, who was monitoring the inspection room, said to the interrogator, ‘How did she carry a Chinese baby all the way here?’ After realizing the implicit instruction, the interrogator repeatedly struck the woman’s belly until the fetus was aborted.”

And that’s the World View in Five Minutes.
