Networks Yawn at Latest IRS Hearing, Judge Threatening to Hold Koskinen, DOJ in Contempt of Court

The network media’s blackout of the IRS scandal continued on Wednesday night with zero mentions of the Senate hearing held hours before as well as a threat issued by a federal judge to hold IRS commissioner John Koskinen and Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys in contempt of court concerning Lois Lerner’s e-mails. As usual, FNC’s Special Report provided coverage that the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision did not and led its Wednesday show with a full story from chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel.

Nets Maintain Blackout on New Planned Parenthood Video; CNN Covers

As of Wednesday morning, ABC, CBS, and NBC’s morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the third video from the Center for Medical Progress, which featured a whistle-blower’s account of "picking" through the remains of aborted babies in order to find organs that could be sold for medical research. The Big Three networks have actually devoted more time to the slaying of a lion in Zimbabwe than all three videos from pro-life organization. CNN’s The Lead on Tuesday actually stood out for covering this latest video.

Nets Refuse to Report New IRS Scandal Revelations

The cover-up behind the IRS targeting scandal continues to unravel, despite President Barack Obama’s absurd protest to the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart last week that “the truth of the matter is there was not some big conspiracy.” This week’s revelations provided the perfect opportunity to catch Obama in a “gotcha” moment but so far ABC, CBS and NBC have reacted with total silence.

NYT’s Jackie Calmes Unloads 16,000-Word Harvard Report on ‘Conservative Media’ Leading GOP to ‘Far Right’ Extremes (Part 1)

New York Times national reporter Jackie Calmes spent a semester at the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University studying "conservative media," and this week issued an exhaustive 16,000-word report with the oh-so-objective title, "’They Don’t Give a Damn about Governing’ — Conservative Media’s Influence on the Republican Party," blaming the "far right" for killing the moderate, pragmatic GOP, while dismissing the very idea of a liberal mainstream media.

NBC Hosts Thrilled Network Hired Obama’s Chef as Analyst

On Wednesday, the hosts of NBC’s Today cheered the network’s decision to hire former White House chef – and husband of left-wing MSNBC host AlexWagner – Sam Kass. Co-host Savannah Guthrie gushed: “…we’ve got an exciting announcement. You guys remember Sam Kass, of course he’s the former assistant White House chef, executive director of the First Lady’s Let’s Move campaign, and nutrition advisor to the President….He is becoming an NBC News senior food analyst.”

Larry King: Modern GOP Is So Conservative, It Would Reject Reagan

According to Larry King on Tuesday, the modern Republican Party is so conservative that it would reject Ronald Reagan. The former CNN anchor interviewed struggling Democratic candidate Lincoln Chafee. After King wondered "what happened to your party, you old party," the former Republican sneered, "It moved south. Back in the ’60s, President Nixon had what they called the southern strategy." King concluded on his show carried on the Russian RT network: "In fact, that party now might even reject Nixon and Reagan."

Seriously? MSNBC Host Mocks Scott Walker for Philly Cheesesteak Order

On Wednesday, MSNBC host Tamron Hall jumped on a non-story about Governor Scott Walker’s recent visit to Philadelphia in which the GOP presidential hopeful allegedly “got a tough lesson” for, wait for it, ordering a Philly cheesesteak with American cheese rather than cheese Whiz. She lectured Walker that “[if]f you’re going to order Philly cheesesteak in Philly, you gotta do it the right way. First, Walker was escorted to the front of the long line at Geno’s, a very popular, iconic shop. Then he ordered a sandwich in the way that was just wrong.”

Penn Jillette Stands Up for Second Amendment, Fights Liberal Panel

Comedian and libertarian Penn Jillette stood up for the Second Amendment, Tuesday, offering a rare non-liberal perspective on Comedy Central’s Nightly Show. In typical liberal media fashion, Jillette was outnumbered three-to-one. After contributor Ricky Velez made the tired argument that the Second Amendment was about muskets, Jillette zinged, "But, unfortunately, with that exact same argument on the First Amendment, you have real trouble too."

Stumbled across this in my morning’s reading…

“The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him—my father’s God, and I will exalt him!” – Exodus 15:2 NLT

Consider this …

In every difficult circumstance, we have a choice. We can choose to be a victim, never overcoming and moving on with our lives. Or we can trust God to show us the way to victory.

Prayer

Father, I thank you that I have a choice—I don’t have to be a victim in any situation if I will trust you for victory. Help me remember that even when I go through difficult situations, you are with me and want to help me find victory. I don’t have to be a victim—with your help, I can be a victor and move on with my life. In Jesus’ name …

Your Position Is a Result of Your Actions

Your Position Is a Result of Your Actions

July 30

Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right" (Prov 20:11).

In the marketplace companies and products are known by their position in the industry they represent. Lexus and Mercedes hold the top position among luxury automobiles. They are known for their high quality. Nike is a sports merchandise company known for its products serving those who play sports and they own the number one position in their industry. Coca-Cola is a soft drink company that currently has the number one position in the world among soft drinks. Companies spend millions trying to gain the number one position.

You also are called to achieve a certain position in what and how you do it. Your position is often a result of your actions taken over several years. Usually when your name is mentioned, your position is revealed. It is the most distinguishing attribute of your life and work and people associate you with your perceived position.

In the workplace you are known more by what you do and what you achieve. Your reputation is often built either around productivity or the lack of it. Years of productivity in an industry can allow you to own the number one position in your industry.

Do your actions line up with the position God desires for your life? Are you modeling the fruits of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of your life? Paul prayed that "you would live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God?"( Col 1:10-11). Paul desired that we all have a position of a person who bears fruit from our knowledge of God.

May each of us strive to have an excellent position for the benefit of the Kingdom

Doing What is Right

Doing What is Right
For reading & meditation – Philippians 2:5-16
"… continue to work out your salvation … for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose." (vv. 12-13) We ended yesterday’s devotional by saying that the biblical response to all of life’s problems is to take advantage of the unfailing grace of God, and turn our setbacks into springboards. I know that some will respond to that statement by saying, "It sounds good in theory, but it’s hard to put it into practice. What about the hurts that some people carry inside them, that make it difficult or sometimes impossible for them to make use of God’s grace to turn their problems into possibilities?" I do understand and sympathize with the wounds that people have, which sometimes militate against their desire to respond to life in a biblical way. I know from firsthand experience the arguments that people can put forward to avoid doing what God asks in His Word. However, I must take my stand, and so must you, on the authority of Scripture, and affirm that God never asks us to do what we are incapable of doing. Much of evangelical Christianity, I am afraid, is man-centered. We need a return to a God-centered position which does exactly what God asks, whether we feel like it or not. I freely confess that there are times when I don’t feel like obeying God. I know, however, what is right – that God has redeemed me and that I belong to Him – and I do what He wants me to whether I feel like it or not. What controls you in your Christian life – your feelings or what you know God asks and expects you to do? Your answer will reveal just who is in the driver’s seat!

Prayer:
Gracious and loving heavenly Father, teach me the art of responding to life, not with my feelings but with a clear mind and a clear resolve. Help me to do what is right – whether I feel like it or not. For Jesus’ sake. Amen..

1. How do we express our love for Christ?
2. How are we enabled to do this?

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws." -Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged
