“Operation Not Forgotten” a Success

__

The U.S. Marshals Service Missing Child Unit, in conjunction with the agency’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), and Georgia state and local agencies, led a two-week operation in August in Atlanta and Macon, Georgia, to rescue endangered missing children.

 

"Operation Not Forgotten" is considered a success with the rescue of 26 children and the safe location of 13 children. Nine people were arrested. Additional charges were brought for sex trafficking, parental kidnapping, registered sex offender violations, drugs and weapons possession, and custodial interference. Some of the arrested had multiple warrants.

 

Each child’s location was confirmed by US Marshall Service investigators to assure their safety and welfare. The rescued children were considered to be some of the most at-risk cases because of the high-risk factors such as victimization of child sex trafficking, child exploitation,

Approval of Labor Unions High in U.S.

__

As corporations like Facebook and Walmart continue to acquire and stockpile wealth for their top executives as the average worker collects food stamps and welfare Americans are looking more favorably at labor unions.  

 

A recent Gallup poll found that 65% of Americans approve of labor unions, the highest it has been since 2003. The poll found that democrats favored unions at a rate of 83%. Republicans weighed in at 45% and 64% of independents approve of unions.

 

As the nation struggles with unemployment, the coronavirus, and the economic crisis support for unions remain high. Gallup has found that the U.S. is divided in its assessment of the biggest problems they are facing today with one in five each citing the economy, the coronavirus, race relations, and leadership.  

 

In 2009, during the Great Recession, support for unions fell to a low of 48%. Gallup's initial reading of the public's support for labor unions was 72% in 1936 and approval peaked at 75% in 1953 and 1957.

 

Labor Unions had to eliminate some Labor Day celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pope Francis has written to Mónica Astorga Cremona, a nun in Neuquén, Argentina, saying that he is praying for her. Cremona, who serves as the superior of her community in Neuquén has served the poor and has now opened a home for transgender men.

Cremona has been a nun since the age of 20. She found her mission working with prisoners, young drug addicts, and alcoholics. She is often referred to as “the nun of the trans” for her work with transgender persons over the last 14 years.

Ca Governor Still Clashing With Churches

Selective COVID-19 Regs Bring Fines, Evictions

Pastor Che Ahn

John MacArthur, pastor of Grace Community Church, has been informed that the church will soon be evicted from land it has leased and uses as a parking lot. The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works wrote a letter that on Oct. 1 it is being evicted from the parking lot lease that it has used since 1975.

 

Lawyers for the church claim that the eviction is in retaliation for the church holding indoor worship services since the COVID-19 pandemic forced a complete change of life. Jenna Ellis, special counsel to Thomas More Society, which is representing the church says the county is striking back after the church fought against the indoor worship ban.

"Los Angeles County is retaliating against Grace Community Church for simply exercising their constitutionally protected right to hold church and challenging an unreasonable, unlawful health order. In America, we have a judicial system to ensure that the executive branch does not abuse its power, and Grace Community Church has every right to be heard without fear of reprisal. The Democrats' message to Americans is clear—

1000 years  

Alan Meyers    

Revelation 20 talks all about the millennial reign or 1000 year reign on Christ. This will happen right here on this earth that God created. It’s not until chapter 21 when the new heaven and earth are introduced. So what are we going to do for 1000 years on earth? Wouldn’t that get boring? Maybe you could float on a cloud and play the harp for a while. Or maybe you want to go to work. I believe we will all have important jobs to do. We will actually reign with Christ!

 

DO YE NOT KNOW THAT THE SAINTS SHALL JUDGE THE WORLD? 1 Corinthians 6:2. That is right, God will have us working right along with Christ. For those of us Christians that are alive now, we will be in immortal or glorified bodies. Remember we will have been raptured before the seven-year tribulation. But the ones that make it through the tribulation will still be in mortal bodies. They will be the ones to repopulate the world for the next 1000 years. So the glorified saints will reign over the mortals. 

 

ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU, SEEK, AND YE SHALL FIND;

Facebook Threatens to Block Australian News

 

 

 

 

 

 

A proposed content-licensing law in Australia would require Facebook and other Internet platform giants to pay publishers for using their copyrighted material. Facebook has threatened to block publishers and the people in Australia from sharing any local or international news on its networks if the proposal becomes law.

 

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) promotes competition and fair trade in markets to benefit consumers, businesses, and the community. They also regulate national infrastructure services. ACCC Chair Rod Sims responded to Facebook’s ultimatum stating “Facebook’s threat today to prevent any sharing of news on its services in Australia is ill-timed and misconceived.”

 

They noted that according to the University of Canberra’s 2020 Digital News Report, 39% of Australians use  Facebook for general news, and 49% use Facebook for news about COVID-19. Facebook has faced many inquiries from around the world. Recent challenges have been over the tech giant’s constant collecting of private or personal information. 

Sims statement shared what the goal of the new law would be saying

The Trump GOP Isn't All That Different

 

Donald Trump took over the Republican Party, but it's still discernibly the Republican Party.

 

The Republican National Convention was obviously very Trumpy. At least one member of the family had a slot every night, and it featured theatrical touches worthy of reality TV.

There also are notable differences of substance. Trump's party has reversed itself on trade and jettisoned concern over deficit spending. The party is much less hawkish than George W. Bush's GOP and much more skeptical of immigration than Ronald Reagan's. It doesn't have the focus of the 2004 Republican convention on terrorism or the 2012 Republican convention on out-of-control entitlement spending.

And yet there is a clear throughline between today's Republican Party and the GOP of the past several decades. Someone transported from the floor of a Republican convention in the 1980s, 1990s or 2000s to the Mellon Auditorium would unquestionably have known where he or she was.

February 19, 2018 is a day that should be remembered by Christians around the world.

Hello Kidz Corner!

 

How has your week been? What’s been keeping you busy? Yesterday I went to the park and it was refreshing to get outside and be in nature. I loved feeding all the ducks. It was a blessing during this time. Are your schools opening up? Unfortunately, mine is not. And I know all this free time means lots of people are watching Netflix non-stop! Not going to lie, Netflix and Disney plus have been on 24/7 at my house. But you may or may not know there is a Christian streaming service. Like Netflix, Hulu, Disney plus, but you can watch Christian movies. That's what I want to talk about today!

 

Pure Flix is an app that you can get for about 13 dollars a month, or if you pay a year in advance you can get it for almost half off. They have READ MORE HERE
