Media BiASSed: Fake News…

1. Big Three Elevate Trump/NFL Spat over Dire Puerto Rico Crisis

 

Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. island territory of Puerto Rico last Wednesday and since then, there has been an ever-worsening humanitarian crisis. Most of the island was still without power, supplies slow to arrive, and the threat of a failing dam as of Monday. Despite the terrible news coming from the island, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have dedicated far more time since Sunday to President Trump’s spat with protesting athletes than to the Puerto Rican people fighting to stay alive.

2. Ashamed of the USA: Journalists Disrespected the Flag Long Before Kaepernick

 

Journalists are falling over themselves to praise NFL players taking a knee in protest during the National Anthem, but this isn’t the first time members of the liberal media have shown disrespect towards a symbol of national unity. Even as this country was recovering from the wounds of 9/11 some leftists in the press were agonizing over the proliferation of flag-waving. The following are some of the most obnoxious examples, via the MRC’s archive, of liberal journalists either bashing or being embarrassed by proud support of patriotic symbols like the American Flag, National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance.

3. WH Press Slam Protest Opposition, Blame Trump for Lack of Non-NFL Coverage

 

Monday’s White House Press Briefing was, once again, insufferable thanks to the questions from the throngs of liberal reports on scene, with this event dominated by defending NFL protesters and blaming Trump for preventing the news media from covering anything else.

4. GMA: Americans ‘Completely Against Notion’ Anthem Protests ‘Aren’t About Race’

 

As they’ve done all weekend, ABC and NBC have been practically apoplectic over President Trump’s comments against the NFL anthem protests Friday and Saturday. Many Americans took to social media to blast the league or their own teams for kneeling, which many see as disrespecting the flag and our country. But ABC didn’t seem to care what regular Americans felt about the protests; instead they invited NFL players, ESPN journalists and celebrities on Monday’s Good Morning America to blast Trump’s comments and defend the league’s actions as fighting for civil rights.

5. After Hailing Kaepernick, NBC Hypes NFL ‘Firestorm of Resistance’ Against Trump

 

While NBC’s Today hailed NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a hero last year over his refusal to stand during the National Anthem, on Monday, the morning show was aghast at President Trump’s criticism of such protests. The broadcast hyped a “firestorm of resistance” against Trump across the NFL on Sunday.

6. Colin Kaepernick, who Mocked Cops as Pigs, Called ‘Bridge Builder’ on CBS

 

In the wake of the latest NFL protests, CBS journalist James Brown on Monday praised Colin Kaepernick as a “bridge builder” and someone who deserves some “credit.” Brown appeared on CBS This Morning to cheer, “He’s committed, he’s put his money where his mouth is. Nearly a million through community efforts to be a bridge builder.”

7. ‘View:’ ‘Bum-In-Chief’ Encouraging ‘Illegal’ Violations of NFL Players’ ‘Constitutional Rights’

 

Monday on ABC’s The View, the hosts continued their network’s obsessive coverage and hysterical handling of the NFL protests this weekend, that were in response to President Trump’s condemnation of the league allowing them to happen in the first place. The ladies at The View took a hard left position on the protests, as to be expected, praising Colin Kaepernick as “very American,” and bashing Trump as “scary” “crazy” and the “bum-in-chief.”

Forgiveness Ensures Freedom

Forgiveness Ensures Freedom

September 26

“But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:15).

Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) was born in Amsterdam and raised in the Dutch Reformed Church. When the Nazis came to power in the late 1930s, Corrie and her family hid Jews behind a false wall in Corrie’s bedroom. In 1944, Corrie’s family was arrested and sent to Ravensbrück, one of the worst concentration camps in Nazi Germany. There, Corrie’s entire family died. Corrie herself was scheduled for execution – but she was released shortly before the end of World War II because of a clerical error.

Corrie concluded that God had saved her for a purpose. She committed her life to preaching the good news of Jesus Christ, speaking in churches, tent meetings, and open-air rallies. At one meeting in Germany in 1947, she taught on God’s forgiveness. Afterwards, a man came up to her and introduced himself as a former Ravensbrück guard – but Corrie needed no introduction. She remembered him well. He was notorious for his cruelty.

“I’ve become a Christian since the war,” he said. “I know God has forgiven me for the horrible things I did, but I would like to hear it from you. Could you tell me that you’ve forgiven me, too?” He put out his hand.

Corrie stood there for what seemed an eternity, unable to think of anything but the horrors this man had committed. Then she remembered the words of Jesus that required her to forgive ANY sin. She silently prayed, “Jesus, help me!” …then she took the man’s hand and cried out, “I forgive you, brother!” She later recalled, “I had never known God’s love so intensely as I did then.”

That was the defining moment in Corrie’s ministry. Over the years that followed, she took the Christian gospel to more than sixty countries around the world and changed hundreds of thousands of lives through her speaking, writing, and the motion picture The Hiding Place, based on her autobiography.

If we want to be used in a great way by God, we must be willing to forgive those who may be a great source a pain in our lives.

Is there someone who needs your forgiveness today?

How Do You Respond?

September 26
How Do You Respond? 
|For reading & meditation – Hebrews 12:4-15
“Be careful that none of you fails to respond to the grace which God gives, for if he does there can … spring up in him a bitter spirit …”” (v. 15, J. B. Phillips)

Today we must examine an issue that may be extremely challenging to us Christians, but we must face it nevertheless. Why is it that many non-Christians, though broken by life, succeed in becoming “”strong at the broken places,”” while many Christians go through similar experiences and come out crippled and bitter? A few years ago I watched a television program in the United States in which a famous Jew, Victor Frankl, talked about his experiences in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. When he was brought before the Gestapo, they stripped him naked and then, noticing that he was still wearing his gold wedding ring, one of the soldiers said, “”Give it to me.”” As he removed his ring, this thought went through his mind: “”They can take my ring, but there is one thing nobody can take from me – my freedom to choose how I will respond to what happens to me.”” On the strength of that, he not only survived the Holocaust, but also developed his whole psychiatric system called Logotherapy, which states that “”when you find meaning in everything, then you can face anything.”” Frankl, a non-Christian, survived the horrors of the Holocaust because he was sustained by an inner conviction that he would come through it, and be able to use the suffering to good effect. His system of Logotherapy is now being used to help thousands who have mental and emotional problems. If a non-Christian, bereft of redemptive grace, can respond to life in this way, then how much more those of us who claim to be His children?
Prayer:
O Father, whenever You corner me like this, You know my tendency to wriggle and try to get off the hook. Help me to face this issue and take my medicine, however bitter it tastes. For Jesus’ sake. Amen.

Media BiASSed:

1. Stelter: The Racism in Trump Kneeling Comments ‘Unmistakable’

 

CNN’s Brian Stelter continued his unholy crusade against President Trump during his Sunday sermon to journalism. He kicked off un-Reliable Sources by suggesting that the President’s comments about those who kneel during the National Anthem were one part elaborate distraction, and another part coded rantings of a secret racist to other secret racists. “Is President Trump trying to distract from his own failures by attacking the NFL? And if so, are journalists just playing into his hands,” Stelter rhetorically asked his audience.

2. ABC/NBC Smear Trump, Claim Racially Coded Rhetoric on Kneeling

 

Since Friday, the liberal media had been foaming at the mouth after President Trump made a series of comments arguing that athletes who disrespected the American flag by kneeling should be either fired or suspended. Come Sunday, two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and NBC) were eager to smear the President with claims of racism and assertions that he on the wrong side of the issue.

3. Barkley Slams ‘Ignorant Folks in Alabama’ for Applauding Trump

 

In the wake of President Trump’s comments about professional athletes kneeling during the National Anthem, sports commentator Charles Barkley appeared on CBS’s NFL Today where he attacked Trump supporters in his home state of Alabama shortly before kickoff on Sunday. Trump’s original comments on NFL players kneeling came during a campaign rally for Alabama Senator Luther Strange.

4. CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill Admits ‘I Don’t Stand for the National Anthem’

 

On Friday’s CNN Tonight, during a discussion of President Donald Trump speaking out against Colin Kaepernick and other athletes who have kneeled instead of standing for the national anthem, far-left CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill admitted that he also does not stand for the anthem. Hill: “I come on here every week and talk about white supremacy — I say Donald Trump is a white supremacist — I don’t stand for the national anthem — and CNN still employs me.” And as he appeared again on Saturday’s CNN Newsroom, he further complained that standing for the anthem is “an affirmation of the American empire,” and boasted about his willingness to label President Trump as a “white supremacist.”

5. Chuck Todd: Trump Causing the U.S. to ‘Lose Its Stature’ Over N.K.

 

Before chastising President Trump for being on the wrong side of the issue in regards to professional athletes kneeling during the national anthem on NBC’s Sunday Today, Meet the Press Moderator Chuck Todd rebuked the President’s handling of North Korea. “This back and forth and it’s an escalation of rhetoric, but at the same time, it’s devaluing potentially what this rhetoric means with this schoolyard taunt,” he bemoaned to Anchor Willie Geist about Trump’s tough talk with the North Korean regime.

6. Univision’s DACA Push Proves Activist Stance

 

Once again, Univision is going into full-activist mode by engaging in an all-platform push in support of the preservation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (aka, DACA). In so doing, the network continues its practice of operating in a manner more consistent with a special interest lobbying firm than that of a national news media outlet.
