    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — DFL leaders called a press conference Thursday to show harmony after a bruising primary election. But if this is Democratic unity, one wonders what DFL dissension looks like. At the news conference, DFL Party Chair Ken Martin was peppered with questions about embattled Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison. “What I would say is that our party takes any allegation of domestic abuse seriously,” he said. “It’s a fluid situation. It’s still developing.”

    he first clear evidence of Bronze Age human activity on Staffa, the dramatic rocky island in Scotland's Inner Hebrides, has been discovered by archaeologists. A single shard of decorated prehistoric pottery was discovered in a small pit on the island in 2016, prompting a more detailed excavation which concluded last week. The team of archaeologists found a burnt grain of hulled barley at the same site, which according to radiocarbon dating originated somewhere between 1880 and 1700 BC. The scientists said the grain -- alongside more fragments of the same type of pottery -- demonstrated that people were "visiting and...

    OPERATION RESCUE ^ | Cheryl Sullenger
    Wichita, KS – An Operation Rescue staff member received a series of disturbing and sexually explicit death threats yesterday afternoon from a caller who expressed anger over a 13-year old article posted on the OperationRescue.org website. The menacing caller told the staffer that he was going to kill her and her entire family after he sexually assaulted two female family members. He said that he had often followed the staffer and female family members around Wichita, Kansas, the location of Operation Rescue’s national headquarters, and knew where the staffer lived. After the caller was blocked, he called back from a...
  • Exalting Others

    Grace To You.org ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    "Love does not brag" (1 Cor. 13:4). Love exalts others; pride exalts self. Most of us shy away from people who have an inflated view of themselves or place themselves at the center of every conversation. Yet perhaps you too struggle with the temptation to spend most of your conversations talking about yourself. Even if you would never openly brag about yourself, might you at times secretly resent others for not acknowledging your accomplishments? That's the subtlety of pride. Boasting always violates love because it seeks to exalt itself at the expense of others—to make itself look good while making...

    “‘No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon’” (Matthew 6:24). The believer is to serve God, not riches. When reading Matthew 6:24, many people say, “I believe that you can serve two masters. I work two jobs.” The reason they say that is they don’t understand the Greek word translated “serve.” It refers not to an employee in an 8-to-5 job but to a slave. A slave is one who is constantly and entirely devoted...

    Last month, archaeologists cracked open a tomb excavated in Alexandria, Egypt, revealing three skeletons bathing in an crimson pool of sludgy sewage. In response, tens of thousands around the world immediately petitioned for the right to sip from the freshly uncorked casket of amontillado. (Spoiler: It hasn't worked out.) But fear not, coffin connoisseurs: There's a new artisanal artifact in town -- the world's oldest solid cheese, over 3,000 years in the making. The tomb of Ptahmes, mayor of Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt during the 13th century BC, contains quite the trove of treasures. First uncovered in 1885,...

    I picked up the definitive edition the other day and have been absolutely loving it. I chose to skip purchasing the game back when because of my disappointment in Absolution and the uncertainty about the whole season thing. Well I’m glad I pulled the trigger for this collected version. This is the Hitman game I wanted back in 2012! Now I’m pretty out of the loop having not played any of the originals a part from Blood Money in several years. I’m confused by the timeline in this new game. I understand the prologue is set in 1999. But once...

  • Trump Ready To Turn His Sights To Remaking The 9th Circuit Court

    There's been a noticeable exception to President Donald Trump's otherwise successful effort to appoint young, conservative judges to the nation's appellate courts. The Senate has confirmed a record 24 new circuit court judges nationwide in 20 months — with two more nominees scheduled for votes this week. But Trump has made far less progress in the jurisdiction he criticizes the most: the liberal-leaning U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, including California and eight other Western states. Since Trump took office, the Senate has confirmed only one 9th Circuit judge — in Hawaii — leaving seven openings. But there are signs...

    Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and the state’s Bond Commission denied $600 million to Citibank and Bank of America over the gun control stance adopted by both companies. Citibank and Bank of America were both to be part of a road financing plan in the state, but were omitted from the financial plan after arbitrarily placing new gun controls on banking customers. Louisiana Executive Division press secretary Ruth Wisher told Breitbart News that Landry and State Treasurer John Schroder have been working on the state’s response to corporate gun control “for some time.” Omitting them from the $600 million is...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Former Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said in seeking to make history and capture a U.S. Senate seat in New Mexico he'll have to give up a few of his favorite activities: marathon biking rides, hanging out in his northern New Mexico "dream" home and tuning out news about President Donald Trump. But he can't promise he won't smoke an occasional joint. Johnson, who served two terms as New Mexico governor in the 1990s and gained national attention as one of the first mainstream politicians to call for the legalization of marijuana, announced Thursday that he's...
