Huckabee: Oregon Shootings the Result of ‘Sin and Evil’

Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” former  Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) discussed last week’s shootings in Oregon and called the episode a result of “sin and evil.” Huckabee said, “Well, he was able to do it because nobody really reported any of the signs. this guy apparently was a loaner. He exhibited some traits of behavior and attitudes that were warning signals, but nobody acted upon them. He was able to obtain those weapons, some of which came, apparently, from his mother. Some that he obtained. I  think we always talk about what the weapon was, but whether it’s a pressure cooker or whether it’s a gun, we’re dealing with people who are either deranged or they’re very focused because they want to kill people in the name of terrorism. We have a not so much a gun problem, we have a problem with sin and evil. This is an evil thing, when people kill another person. it happens way too often.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

World’s First Lesbian Bishop Calls for Church to Remove Crosses, to Install Muslim Prayer Space

Lesbian Bishop
The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers. Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009, and has a young son with her wife and fellow lesbian priest Gunilla Linden, made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome. The church targeted is the Seamen’s mission church in Stockholm’s eastern dockyards. The Bishop held a meeting there this year and challenged the priest to explain what he’d do if a ship’s crew came into port who weren’t Christian but wanted to pray. Calling Muslim guests to the church “angels“, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one “stingy towards people of other faiths”. The bishop insisted this wasn’t an issue, after all airports and hospitals already had multi-faith prayer rooms, and converting the dockyard church would only bring it up to speed. Regardless, the

Chicago reached 59 murders and 362 gunshot victims in September, marking the Democratic-run city’s deadliest month since 2002, according to analysis by The Chicago Tribune. The last month of summer featured more homicides than any other month this year, and more than any summer month since the prior decade. According to the Tribune, September ended with two consecutive weekends during which more than 50 people were shot. There more than 40 shootings each weekend in August. September ended on a deadly note not just for the city in general, but for one South Side family in particular. On Sunday the 27th, a Chicago family was gunned down as they were returning home. One of the family members shot was an young boy, who was rushed to hospital by a Chicago cop, likely saving his life. But the boy’s grandmother and mother were killed at 7:30 PM, when the five family members were fired upon after arriving home that evening. When officers arrived they found the severely injured boy and instead of waiting for an ambulance they made the snap decision to drive the child to the hospital on their own. “The officer saw a seriously injured 11-month-old child and made a decision

Multiple ISIS Terror Suspects Arrested In Spain And Morocco

ISIS Spain arrest
Ten suspected terrorists have been arrested in a series of raids in Spain and Morocco, all thought to have recruited jihadi fighters for the Islamic State (IS). One burka-clad woman, 18, who was paraded on a busy Gandia street, spread decapitation videos and was planning to join IS. Four of the suspects, two men and two women, were arrested in Spain, with raids taking place in Badalona, Toledo and Valencia, while the other six arrests happened in Morocco, Spain’s Interior Ministry said in a statement. The terror suspects were part of a “network of recruitment, indoctrination and sending foreign fighters to fight for Daesh (IS) in the regions of Syria and Iraq under its control,” the statement read. The women arrested in Spain were both Moroccans, while one of the men was a Spanish national of Moroccan ancestry and the other a Portuguese citizen converted to Islam. The arrests took place on Sunday and investigators also seized a considerable amount of computer equipment and data, which is being analysed, the statement says. The 18-year-old woman apprehended in Gandia was allegedly planning to leave Spain and join IS herself. Two plain clothed, masked female officers escorted her from her home before shocked onlookers.

‘Stuff Happens': CNN’s Ryan Lizza Is Why America Hates and Distrusts the Media

Ryan Lizza identifies an objective reporter/analyst for The New Yorker and CNN, but anyone familiar with his work knows that he is just another left-wing hitman, and on Friday afternoon he proved so once again when he intentionally took Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush out of context. With trust in the media at an all-time low; with circulations and ratings plummeting; with red ink flowing, you would think the elite media would stop with the corrupt lying. Nope. The Cause will always come first. No one will ever confuse me with a Jeb Bush fan. In the upcoming primaries there are around a dozen Republicans I’ll vote for before Bush. That doesn’t mean, though, that it is okay when a Ryan Lizza intentionally lies about what Bush said, not just — it should be added — to attack Jeb but the Republican Party at large. And all in the service of pushing gun confiscation and keeping Democrats in the White House. At a forum in South Carolina, Bush was asked about Thursday’s school shooting in Oregon. His answer was quite good — a thoughtful look at the unpredictability of human nature, the role of government, the rights of the individual

New Tighter Border Controls – Only If It’s Daytime And Not At Weekends

A man moves out belonging from the Maximilien park where refugees build an improvised camp awaiting their demand to be registered as an asylum seeker being handled, near the immigration office which is the agency for the reception and the first contact for asylum seekersm on October 1 2015 m in Brussels.
Tighter border controls announced last month by Belgium’s Minister of the Interior have come under attack for their feeble application. It has transpired that illegal immigrants need only wait until late afternoon or the weekend to cross the border to get through Belgium’s ring of steel. It was trumpeted as a major initiative last month when Belgium’s Minister of the Interior announced his country would be introducing tighter border controls. Jan Jambon introduced the stricter regulations in response to the ongoing crisis in Europe caused by migrants from the Middle East and Africa. Belgium was not alone – Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Slovenia all took measures to secure their borders and slow the flow of migrants too. More rigorous border enforcement was just one part of wider moves which included further checks within Belgium itself, focusing on transport hubs and arteries like airports and rail lines. The aim is to use spot checks to identify and register illegal immigrants to help counter human trafficking operations. Jambon has spoken about stricter border checks since soon after January’s Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, as reported by Flanders News. Back then, declaring that “the chain is as strong as the weakest link” he explained: “We have to ensure that
