By Victor Ochieng A New York City pastor has come under fire after she informed the world that she’s pregnant with her fiancé. Many people have blasted her, saying she has no place at the pulpit since her act – having s*x before marriage – is a sin However, the pastor, Desireé Allen, who’s pregnant with twins, has vowed not to leave the pulpit, asserting that she won’t let people shame her out.

Fidel Castro Dies at the Age of 90

“That the godless man reign not, that there be none to ensnare the people.” Job 34:30 (The Israel Bible™) Fidel Castro, a Marxist who led Cuba from 1959 to 2008, passed away on Friday at the age of 90.  Castro ruled his country longer than any other modern world leader, except for  Britain’s Queen Elizabeth. He was a thorn in the side of Cuba’s much larger neighbor 90 miles to the north, the United States, vexing 11 presidents by bringing communism to their doorstep and embarrassing the CIA with a failed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961. Fidel Castro was succeeded as Cuba’s ruler by his brother, Raul Castro, in 2008, who reestablished diplomatic and economic ties with the US in 2014. When US President Barack Obama visited Cuba for three days in March, it was the first time a US

Written by | November 24, 2016 | 0
How many times have you found yourself going through ‘hell’ after ending a relationship? Whether it was you who did the dumping or you were the one being dumped, somehow and someway your ‘ex’ made/or is making your life a living hell. You’ve moved on but they are still holding grudges. You’ve learned to let go but they are burying your name in the sand and causing you grief. Let’s not pretend it doesn’t happen because it does and when you’re the one being abused, it’s no laughing matter. As a matter of fact, the situation can become unbearable that you don’t know what to do. The reason I’m writing this is because I’ve been approached in recent days by men and women who have poured out their hearts in anger and hurt. Anger because their name, credibility, career,

By Victor Ochieng When Nicki Panchol left for a hike, she decided to wear a bandanna to protect herself from the scorching California sun. She didn’t expect that the bandanna would make some people so mad that they would end up vandalizing her car, stealing her purse and demanding that she leave the U.S. Why? Because the criminals thought she was Muslim. In their note, they said, “Hijab wearing b***…This is our nation now get the f*** out.” Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle, Panchol said, “When I saw it, I was in shock that someone would feel so much hate to do this. I realize that this is the climate after this election. But I didn’t realize someone would be so ignorant and in so much pain to cause so much harm.” Panchol said the incident got her badly shaken that, by

Iranian-American Pastor Says Donald Trump Was Chosen By God to Lead America

Written by | November 24, 2016 | 0
By Victor Ochieng Before the presidential elections, Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini predicted that Republican Donald Trump would carry the day, claiming that God had given him a vision while he was locked up in an Iranian prison. “I saw a young man with blue eyes, blond hair. I was sitting with him in a room,” Abedini said during an interview with the Huffington Post. “Someone told me, ‘He’s going to be the next president of the United States and you’re going to be friends with him.” The pastor, however, said that at the onset he couldn’t recognize who the person in the vision was even after the names of the presidential candidates were released. This made him conclude that God wasn’t referring to the 2016 presidential elections. He would later realize that the

Should The Electoral College Be Abolished?

Written by | November 24, 2016 | 0
By Victor Ochieng The U.S. presidential election is over and the greatest country on earth already has a president-elect who’s set to assume office in January 2017. From the results, it’s clear that not every American has a voice in the process, at least according to civil rights activist Jesse Jackson. In an article posted on Chicago Suntimes, Jackson pointed out how the winner in the just concluded elections was decided. In the popular vote, his candidate, Democratic Party’s Hillary Clinton, won by a margin of close to one million votes. However, because of the Electoral College system, the popular vote margin doesn’t really count. Why? Because Clinton couldn’t garner the 270 Electoral College votes needed for one to become president. The argument used to justify Electoral

“Woe to them that devise iniquity and work evil upon their beds! When the morning is light they execute it because it is in the power of their hand.” Micah 2:1 (The Israel Bible™)   (1000 Words / Shutterstock.com) The Knesset Science and Technology Committee, chaired by MK Uri Maklev (United Torah Judaism), debated on Monday a bill potentially fining public companies for incitement to terrorism. The bill would clearly define the responsibilities of both global companies and the Israeli government in order to construct a proper framework for cooperation. “These meetings are extremely important in order to pinpoint the discrepancy between what the State of Israel sees and our perception in headquarters, to understand your specific revendications and what to improve, “ said Jordana

Misogyny fight in Australia sparks a change in dictionary definition

Written by | October 17, 2012 | 0
CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA—Australia’s prime minister did not define “misogyny” wrong in a blistering attack on a male rival — the dictionary did. Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s fiery speech last week in which she branded conservative opposition leader Tony Abbott a misogynist for a string of allegedly sexist comments he had made in recent years has been lauded by feminists around the world. But Gillard’s critics have accused her of hyperbole, pointing to dictionary definitions of misogyny as hatred of women. Sue Butler, the editor of the Macquarie Dictionary, which is regarded as the definitive authority on Australian meanings of words, said Wednesday that the political furor revealed to her fellow editors that their dictionary’s definition was decades out of date. The dictionary

Lawless execution of Gadhafi, followers pinned on militias

Written by | October 17, 2012 | 0
Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi lived like an emperor, but died like a hunted animal. On Wednesday, Human Rights Watch released a detailed report showing vivid evidence of Gadhafi’s final hours in Sirte at the hands of opposition militias — and their legacy of uncontrolled violence, which is creating havoc in the country today. “Around 11 a.m., a group of fighters arrived with a golden gun,” said one of the report’s authors, Peter Bouckaert, who was at a hospital near the scene of Gadhafi’s death almost one year ago as Libya’s chaotic civil war came to a bloody close. “They came up to us and said, ‘This is Moammar Gadhafi’s handgun. We got him.’ ” The 50-page report also presents new evidence that implicates militias from Misurata in the alleged execution of at least

New planet discovered in our back yard, raising hopes for discovery of Earth-like planet

Written by | October 17, 2012 | 0
WASHINGTON—European astronomers say that just outside our solar system they’ve found a planet that’s the closest you can get to Earth in location and size. It is the type of planet they’ve been searching for across the Milky Way galaxy and they found it circling a star right next door — 40 trillion kilometers away. But the Earth-like planet is so hot its surface may be like molten lava. Life cannot survive the 2,200 degree heat of the planet, so close to its star that it circles it every few days. The astronomers who found it say it’s likely there are other planets circling the same star, a little farther away where it may be cool enough for water and life. And those planets might fit the not-too-hot, not-too-cold description sometimes call the Goldilocks Zone. That means that
