Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver is facing a lawsuit after yet another angry diatribe. This time, the HBO host targeted the coal industry and one its top CEOs. Oliver has a long history of assailing conservatives and Christians as “racist,” “evil” “Islamophobes.” The comic has mocked the United States electoral process as a “four-year-old’s birthday” and Donald Trump as “viscerally horrifying.”
Republican Senators released the draft of their replacement for the failing ObamaCare program on Thursday, and with it came the wrath of the liberal media. “The cat is out of the bag tonight on the Senate Republican plan to overhaul ObamaCare. The veil finally lifted today on the draft of a health care bill written in secret…,” chided Anchor Lester Holt to begin NBC Nightly News. Despite the bill keeping their favorite parts of ObamaCare, they chastised the bill while at the same time casting blame on President Trump for ObamaCare’s death-spiral.
During Thursdays audio-only White House daily briefing, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders received a question from CBS Radio News that touted far-left Senate protesters that have claimed that the proposed Senate Republican health care bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare would cause people to die.
Throughout her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell hyped an orchestrated left-wing protest outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office on Capitol Hill as spelling certain doom for any Republican attempt to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
The mainstream media doesn’t understand pro-life Americans. They think you’re either stupid, uninformed, or some bizarre religious troglodyte opposing progress to satiate a deep lust for misogyny. Nowhere was this more evident than in Thursday morning’s bizarre tag team effort between the hosts on MSNBC Live with Velshi and Ruhle.
Thursday, June 22, was marked, sadly, by the funeral services for American student Otto Warmbier following his captivity in North Korea. While others mourned the loss of this young man’s life at the hands of the tyrannical communist regime, MSNBC’s Morning Joe opted for a different route. How you ask? Why, by comparing President Trump to North Korea, of course! In an exchange with co-host Mika Brzezinski, Random House editor, Jon Meacham, compared the actions of Donald Trump at an Iowa rally to, “regimes like North Korea, where the dear leader speaks and we’re all supposed to salute.”
Further illustrating the blatant collusion between the Democratic Party and the news media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) spent Wednesday night predicting that history will look back on the Trump era and conclude the liberal media were “the heroes” who stood for decency and truth.

Then Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died; and she was left, and her two sons. Now they took wives of the women of Moab: the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth. And they dwelt there about ten years. Then both Mahlon and Chilion also died; so the woman survived her two sons and her husband. (Ruth 1:3-5).
Naomi’s life was going well. A great husband. Two fine sons who had two wonderful wives. Then the unthinkable happened. Her husband died. A little time later both her sons die. Her and her daughter-in-laws find themselves in the midst of shattered dreams. This isn’t how life was supposed to be.
How did Naomi react to her situation? “…for it grieves me very much for your sakes that the hand of the Lord has gone out against me!” (Ruth 1:13). Ah, we see her true feelings about the situation. “How could a loving God let this happen?!” “Do not call me Naomi; call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. I went out full, and the Lord has brought me home again empty. Why do you call me Naomi, since the Lord has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me?” (Ruth 1:20-21).
Mara means bitter. She knew where she was. She was bitter toward this so called God of love. “How can I possibly reconcile this?!” No life insurance. No widow’s fund. “What is going to happen to me and my daughters?”
The Bible says the rain falls on the righteous and the unrighteous. Naomi and Ruth move to a community where some of her relatives lived. Ruth goes out to work in the fields to put food on the table. She just so happens to work in the field of a wealthy farmer named Boaz. When Ruth tells her this the first ray of hope penetrates her bitter heart. Even she can recognize the hand of God.
So she told her mother-in-law with whom she had worked, and said, “The man’s name with whom I worked today is Boaz. Then Naomi said to her daughter-in-law, ‘Blessed be he of the Lord, who has not forsaken His kindness to the living and the dead!’” (Ruth 2:19-20).
Hebrew custom was for the next in kin to care for the widow in the family. Boaz was to be this man. He would eventually marry Ruth. She would bare a son, Obed. He would be the father of Jesse, the father of David. Jesus would come firm the same lineage.
Shattered dreams often lead to a world-impacting destiny. But getting there is often a process where we must work through honest feelings before we can see the God who redeems even the most devastating shattered dream.
