Man protecting daughter from alleged predator charged with murder

Man protecting daughter from alleged predator charged with murder

Playing armchair judge and jury is usually a bad idea. One cannot glean enough facts from a news story to pass appropriate judgment, but in today’s society that’s so quick to judgment anyway, why not play around with it ourselves. The case in question involves a father who may have gone too far in protecting his teenage daughter.

The short version is a man tried to enter the locked stall of a 16-year-old girl at a convenience store. The father of the girl reported it to security. When security did not handle the situation sufficiently, the father confronted the man outside. The man allegedly took a swing at the father, who proceeded to beat him to death.

Here’s the longer version if you want more details:

Father accused of fatally beating man who tried to enter bathroom occupied by teen daughter

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ny-news-father-beats-man-bathroom-daughter-20180815-story.htmlThe security guard told Melvin Harris he would take care of it. However, cops say that Harris got back into his vehicle and pulled it into a gravel area near where Leon Leevon Armstrong was. Harris is accused of punching Armstrong in the face, and he allegedly hit him repeatedly while the victim was on the ground.

Armstrong suffered swelling to the brain and had a nasal fracture. Armstrong died from his injuries.

Was he right in killing the man? No. That part is obvious. Given the circumstances, should he be charged with 2nd degree murder? If charged, convicted? These the questions that may be answered in a courtroom in the near future.

This is relevant in an age where public restrooms are potentially more dangerous than ever before. They’ve never been truly safe, but the gender non-identity movement has changed things. There have already been multiple reports of abuse by those using society’s new-found tolerance for men in women’s restrooms and dressing areas to their advantage. While this case does not appear to be such a case, it brings to light the question that many parents have asked themselves: If the law isn’t going to protect us and our families, how far must we go to protect ourselves?

I don’t have an answer. Does anyone?

John 16:33 – ‘ye shall have tribulation’

Published

John 16:33 ye shall have tribulation

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. – John 16:33 (KJV)

One of the most confused and misunderstood verses in the Bible is John 16:33. In it, Yeshua comforts His disciples as well as those in all all generations of the upcoming tribulation. He tells than that they will have tribulation. They will be tested. The will be persecuted. The good news is that they will not have to overcome the tribulations as those in the past have had to overcome.

Yeshua has already overcome the world. Regardless of what tribulations come, we are protected through faith. As long as we stay true to Yeshua as Lord and Savior and do the Will of the Father through until death, we will be saved. In the past, the Will of the Father was based upon our responses and how we handled persecution. Once Christ was resurrected, we no longer had the same burden. We need only to look to Yeshua and believe on Him as our salvation through the tribulations and we can be saved.

Incidentally, this is one of the verses commonly used to fight the concept of a pre-tribulation rapture. While it is clear He is talking to His disciples, it’s a message that transcends time and acts as a reminder that we don’t need to worry about the problems in the world. We simply need to walk through the narrow gate.

CNN does 67 updates for Sri Lanka story with ZERO mentions blaming Islamic terrorists

CNN does 67 updates for Sri Lanka story with ZERO mentions blaming Islamic terrorists

The narrative has already been set by American mainstream media on how they’re supposed to handle the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday. There are certain things that can be said and others that must be avoided at all costs. With reporting that has spanned nearly 24 hours and included 67 updates to the story, guess how many times CNN blamed Islamic terrorists for the attack.

If you guessed anything higher than zero, you gave CNN way too much credit.

I scanned the entire series of live updates they’ve been doing since the news broke. It’s all within one long story, making it easy to search for individual words, so I did. The results were depressing but expected. Even at this late hour, they still have not acknowledged the possibility that the act was committed by Islamic terrorists.

The closest they came to blaming radical Islamic terrorists in their primary coverage story was a mention in a quote by Diplomatic editor Nic Robertson in which he notes the obvious – that it has the “hallmarks” of Islamic terrorism – but then quickly notes that there are no known radical Islamic terrorist groups in the area.

“It is a very confused picture in terms of who may or may not be responsible. The Sri Lankan civil war ended 10 years ago, a 25 year long civil war, and the Tamil separatists there were a secular group. It would be very, very unlike them and their tactics ever to attack churches and particularly on such a holy day.”

“It has the hallmarks — or is intended to have the hallmarks — of Islamic extremists. But, again, these kinds of groups are unknown in Sri Lanka.”

This last notion is absolutely untrue, of course, as we now know the Chief of Police in Sri Lanka issued a warning about the Nations Thawahid Jaman (NTJ), an Islamist group led by Mohomad Saharan.

The CNN report mentioned the word “Muslim” four times: twice to note the percentage of the population of Sri Lanka that is Muslim, once to warn against reprisals against Muslims, and another to note there have been attacks against Muslims by Buddhist groups. Not once was it even speculated the attacks were carried out by Muslims.

The leftist narrative must be maintained and CNN will not break their allegiances. This was just some people that did something. It may look like an apple, but CNN will scream “banana, banana, banana” for as long as they can.

Since leftist media won’t say it: Radical Islamic terrorists murdered hundreds of Christians

Published

Since leftist media wont say it Radical Islamic terrorists murdered hundreds of Christians

Update: CNN still hasn’t acknowledge the possibility it was Islamic terrorism after 67 updates over the last 24 hours.

Original Story:

The dramatic shift in how mainstream media characterizes terrorist attacks over the years reached what I hope is the pinnacle of their obfuscation today. The terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka against Christian churches and areas where Christians were likely to gather were committed on Easter Sunday by Muslims in a city known for radicalization. This was a clear and unambiguous attack by radical Islamic terrorists specifically targeting Christians.

But you’ll have a hard time coming to that conclusion if all you’re reading or watching is leftist mainstream media.

The reporting today has been in stark contrast to the immediate labeling and narrative-building surrounding the terrorist attacks in New Zealand mosques last month. There was zero doubt based on media reporting that the attacks were targeting Muslims. But today, it’s hard to even find the word “Christian” in any of the posts or news reports. On top of that, there’s a stark difference when reading the Tweets of condolences from leftists who refuse to acknowledge this as an attack against Christianity despite the immediate and crystal clear labeling of the New Zealand mosque incidents as attacks targeting Muslims.

Some of this was noted by Brittany Pettibone:

OAN’s Jack Posobiec added that a new phrase has been coined by the media regarding the Notre-Dame fire:

Was this the same response they were giving following the Christchurch attacks? No. As Imam Mohamad Tawhidi noted, the differences were very clear.

Why do the media and leftist politicians do this? Why are they quick to label attacks against any other religious group exactly as they appear, but they’re so unwilling to call out any attacks against Christians as attacks against Christians?

This is the time we’re in, folks. The left has a narrative they want jammed into our heads and that narrative has no room for acknowledging violence and persecution is committed against Christians. The only stories that fit their narratives are stories that can blame Christians for wrongdoing. In those cases, the perpetrators’ status as Christians is broadcast loud and clear. But if Christians are victims, the left will go to extreme lengths to negate that fact from the record.

Of all the major news outlets, I was only able to find one that didn’t shy away from the truth. The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board stands alone in declaring the intended victims of this attack as who they are and why they were targeted.

WSJ Editorial Board

The intentional suppression of what happened, who committed it, and who was targeted is beyond insulting. The terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka are being framed by the media as some people did something.
