Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Amir Tsarfati: The Restrainer
Published on Mar 13, 2019
The Bible says “…For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way…”. Who is the Restrainer? When will He be removed? Why does He restrain? How will He be removed?

THE TRIBULATION OF THE UNJUST IN REVELATION CH 6 -22:
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
BELIEVING IN JESUS
QUESTION: This is the end of a sermon given by my preacher.
The Bible doesn’t say that “whosoever believeth in the inerrancy of Scripture will not perish but have everlasting life”; it doesn’t say that whosoever believeth in the divinity of Jesus, his virgin birth, his bodily resurrection, his second coming; it doesn’t say that whosoever believeth in the doctrine of substitutionary atonement will not perish; it says that whosoever believeth in him–in Jesus–will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
I was shocked. This seems very wrong to me and the way of the new age movement. I need some guidance.
ANSWER: Romans 10:9 clearly says,
“If you confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
When we confess that Jesus is Lord, it means we believe that He’s the one sent by God to die for our sins. Believing that God raised Him from the dead is necessary for salvation because When He went to the cross, Jesus took all the sins of our life upon Himself to make us righteous before God. (2 Cor. 5:21) After His resurrection He went to sit at God’s right hand. God cannot be in the presence of sin, so if any of our sins were left unpaid, He couldn’t be in the presence of God. And that means we couldn’t be sure that he really saved us completely. Since there’s no other way to pay for our sins, we’d still be lost. To put it simply, His resurrection is proof that God considered His death sufficient to pay for all of our sins in full, qualifying us for resurrection as well. Belief in the resurrection is not optional. Unless we believe that Jesus was resurrected, we can’t believe that we will be.
The same case can be made for the divinity of Jesus, the virgin birth, the substitutionary atonement, and so on. According to God’s Law, they are essential to our assurance of salvation. They’re what make John 3:16 work. People who say otherwise simply haven’t done their theological homework.
Lot’s of people love Jesus because they see Him as a great teacher, or a kind and gentle man, or a good role model. These are all legitimate responses to His life. But until we admit that we’re sinners in need of a Savior and believe that Jesus is both willing and able to save us if we ask Him, then all the love we have for Him as a man will not help us at all.
MORE ON OUR CROWNS
QUESTION: I don’t know about you but I feel like I’m going to be the only Christian without a crown. I’m not sure I’ve ever done anything without some sort of hidden selfish motive. Even when I think I’m being selfless, just thinking that suddenly ruins everything. I guess I’ll just be grateful finally being with the Lord. That will be my reward. Being sinless and being with him is reward in itself. I can’t wait!!!
ANSWER: You’re just like the rest of us. I think what we considered to be our greatest accomplishments will get burned up in the fire, and the things we don’t even remember doing will earn us crowns. Remember 1 Cor. 4:5 says,
Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.
This applies to the way we judge ourselves too. And please note the word “each”. Each will receive his praise from God. It doesn’t say “some” or “many” or even “most” but “each”. To me this means that the Lord will find something good in each one of us.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a warning to Iran and Hezbollah that “Israel knows what you’re doing, Israel knows where you’re doing it,” hours after Israel announced it had uncovered a terror cell in the Syrian Golan Heights.
The Hezbollah cell is “just the tip of the iceberg,” Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, said on Wednesday.
The Israel Defense Forces said earlier Wednesday that it had exposed a nascent Hezbollah cell established in a border village on the Syrian Golan Heights in recent months, and vowed to prevent the terrorist group from operating against Israel from Syrian soil, even at the risk of sparking a small-scale conflict.
The Iran-backed, Lebanon-based group has been trying to create a front in the Syrian Golan for years, but has struggled to gain a sufficient foothold in the southern border area. However, Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s conquest of the border area this summer gave the regime-allied group an opportunity to again try to establish the necessary infrastructure with which it could threaten Israel near the border.
“This morning Israel exposed a Hezbollah terror network on the Golan Heights. Hezbollah is a terror organization. It’s a proxy of Iran. It does Iran’s bidding and this terror network is part of Iran’s aggression against Israel,” Netanyahu said in a video statement.
“So I have a clear message for Iran and for Hezbollah,” he added. “Israel knows what you’re doing, Israel knows where you’re doing it. What we’ve uncovered today is just the tip of the iceberg. We know a lot more.”
He warned: “Israel will continue to do all that’s necessary to defend itself. We will continue to use all means, overt and covert, to block Iran’s effort to use Syria, Lebanon and Gaza as forward bases for attacking Israel.”
In revealing the cell’s existence, the military said, “The network is new and currently focused on becoming familiarized with the Golan Heights area. It is intended to eventually control teams of Syrian operatives who will launch attacks against Israel.”
At this stage the Hezbollah plot — known within the organization as the “Golan File” — mostly involves collecting intelligence and recruiting operatives, but also has weaponry in its possession, mainly explosives, light arms, machine guns and antitank missiles, according to the IDF.
The military said the terror group may try to bring rockets, missiles and other weaponry into the area in the future, but is concerned that such munitions would be destroyed by Israeli strikes.
On 6 March, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the world community to stop Iran from shipping oil abroad. He also threatened to deploy the Israeli Navy to help tackle suspected Iranian efforts to smuggle out oil via maritime routes to skirt US sanctions.
If the Israeli Navy attempts to hamper Iran’s oil sales, Tehran “will firmly respond”, the Iranian Minister of Defence Amir Hatami stated Wednesday.
The defence minister also noted that Israeli actions would be seen as “piracy” if the navy would act against Iran, according to the news agency IRNA.
The minister’s statement follows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s threats expressed last week that he would deploy the Israeli Navy to deal with Iran’s alleged attempts to smuggle out oil via maritime routes in order to skirt sanctions imposed by Washington. However, the Israeli official didn’t specify how the navy would tackle that and whether it would become a direct armed confrontation at sea.
The Iranian Navy has been seeking to boost its presence at sea amid a new escalation of tensions with the United States following the latter’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and reimpose economic sanctions on Tehran. In particular, Tehran earlier this year conducted drills in the Strait of Hormuz — a strategically important route for oil exports from the region. Iran also previously threatened to block this key sea route if Washington provoked it and blocked its oil exports.
Israel is one of Washington’s key allies in the Middle East and a major buyer of US arms and military equipment. The two states share the same position on the Iran issue.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip calls Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “thief” and a “tyrant” in the latest spat between the two leaders.
The dispute comes after Erdogan’s spokesman denounced Netanyahu as a racist for saying that Israel was the nation-state of the Jewish people only. Netanyahu then struck back calling Erdogan a dictator and criticizing the country for imprisoning journalists.
Speaking at an election campaign rally, Erdogan addresses Netanyahu as “the thief who heads Israel” in reference to corruption allegations against him.
Erdogan continues: “You are a tyrant. You are a tyrant who slaughters 7-year-old Palestinian kids.”
Israel and Turkey were once close allies. But under Erdogan, Turkey has become the most vocal critic of Israel’s policies toward Palestinians.
The blackout covering socialist Venezuela is not going away any time soon, and Venezuela’s people are now facing famine. Up until now, they’ve been eating out of garbage trucks. International aid has been blocked by force. Now, they’re raiding the sewers for water.
And the known death toll in the hospitals is high, at least 25, and nobody knows how many have died in places such as western Venezuela, where there is no power at all. Preemies have lost their incubaters, patients with kidney failure have died slow painful deaths without dialysis, diabetics have lost their refrigerated insulin, cancer patients have lost their chemotherapy treatments, people with other critical illnesses and conditions have not been able to reach doctors on the phone or been able to see hospital staff whose subway trips to work have been halted. People who were halfway through surgery when the blackout hit have fared very very grimly.
The ruin is total – no banks, no money, no stores to buy things from, nothing to buy anyway, no transport, no gas, no refrigeration, no food, no water, no medicine, no school, no word from government – and no hopes of anything getting fixed. Locals are burning out Chavista government establishments. The rest of the country looks like a scene from Blade Runner. Even the military, under pressure to defect to the democrats, is now affected. And with socialist mismanagement of the centralized power system the cause, it’s not going to get better any time soon. The Venezuelan government has been weirdly silent, with only crude outbursts blaming the U.S. for sabotage, as if Venezuela’s non-digitalized analog power system could actually be hacked.
So, amid rumblings seen in Twitter, the obvious has been called for in the last redoubt of democracy in the country, its National Assembly: Foreign military intervention, to save the country. The Chavista constitution they are operating on, put that right for the National Assembly in, probably imagining they’d rule forever, and might like some Russian or Cuban intervention at some point. Like a captured weapon, it’s now being used against them.
And it’s a big change. Up until now, U.S. intervention has always been a bad word in Latin America – in the press, in the ruling intelligentsia, in academia, among the left-leaning politicians. Never mind that people usually come running to the Marines and thank them, some maybe kissing the ground in gratitude, as happened with the U.S. hoseout of Cuban military rule in Grenada in 1983. When I visited Panama in 2000 and asked the locals about the 1990 Marine invasion to take out the drug-dealing dictator Manuel Noriega, the reaction also was gratitude. There’s definitely a sort of have-it-both ways dynamic around the region from the past – with U.S. interventions denounced, but interventions for one’s own country seen as a gift. It’s not that different from ‘Yankee go home – and take me with you.’
But this is different. This is people trying to save their literally dying nation. And they’re speaking direction. It’s a zero-apologies call for foreign intervention – from Venezuela’s last remaining democratic institution, based on what prominent Venezuelans describe as recognizing “reality.” The Venezuelans are calling the shots here and they mean to own this. Juan Guaido says he will call for it if international aid continues to be blocked by the Maduro dictatorship.
The dictatorship and all its ruinous killings is not going to be dislodged by gargantuan, millions-strong protests. It’s not going to be dislodged by sanctions. It’s not going to be dislodged by moral suasion to its top military leaders, who inexplicably remain with the Maduro dictatorship. It’s held in place with foreign support. Its only way out is to be thrown out.
In the words of respected Venezuelan statesman Diego Arria, this has no comparison to spurious claims of imperialism:
The U.S. probably hasn’t decided what it’s going to do, but right now, it’s got a strong longtime policy called the ‘Monroe Doctrine’ which was put there to keep foreign powers out of the hemisphere to protect Latin America’s democracies. Just as Venezuelans have the justification in their Chavista constitution, so does the U.S. have in its longtime policy.
Cuban and other military rule definitely what’s keeping the Maduroites in power. Cuban operatives are running the place, just as they ran Grenada, only with far more force and influence. They say they are going to fight.
President Trump isn’t a big fan of military interventions, given that they tend to cost American lives and up until now have led to money- and corruption pits known as “nation-building.” His Venezuela point man, Elliott Abrams, whom we know he differs with, on the other hand, does.
The U.S. has just announced the withdrawal of all its embassy personnel in Caracas. In the past, in Panama, that’s been precisely the prelude to U.S. military intevention to prevent hostage-taking.
With most of Latin America, including the important countries such as Brazil and Colombia also onboard, it might happen.
RELIGIOUS WAR ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT
Israel accused the Palestinian Authority of inciting a religious war on the Temple Mount after a Palestinian Molotov cocktail attack on an Israeli police station on the holy site sparked an afternoon riot.
Police closed the al-Aqsa compound for the remainder of the day but are expected to fully reopen it Wednesday.
“Abu Mazen [PA President Mahmoud Abbas] continued to lie and incite violence together with the terror organizations of Murabitoun and Hamas, in an attempt to ignite a fire and cause a religious war on the Temple Mount,” Public Safety Minister Gilad Erdan said.
“We will not allow this to happen,” Erdan said. “We will continue to act to restore calm on the [Temple Mount]. Police will respond with strength and determination to any act of violence or attempt to harm Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount.”
Tuesday’s incidents began at about 1 p.m., when Palestinians threw a Molotov cocktail at the police post, which then caused a fire and damaged the building. One police officer was lightly injured from smoke inhalation.
Police so far have arrested two minors, suspected of involvement in the incident. They will be brought to court on Wednesday.
Some Palestinians, however, rejected the police account that the post was torched by a firebomb. At least two eyewitnesses claimed that the fire was caused by children who were playing with fireworks.
Dozens of policemen rushed to the Temple Mount following the attack, sparking scuffles with Palestinian women and Wakf guards. Three Palestinians were immediately arrested in connection with the firebomb attack on the police post.
The police closed the entrances to the compound after Palestinian activists and groups began calling on Palestinians to head to al-Aqsa Mosque to “defend it against the assault by the police and Jewish extremists.”
The police also temporarily closed the Old City’s Damascus Gate and Lions’ Gate. Hamas called on Palestinians to head to the Temple Mount to “break the closure.”
United Nations Special Coordinator to the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov called for Israelis and Palestinians to show restraint.
“Places of worship are for prayer, not for provocations and violence. Restraint must be shown to avoid inflaming an already tense situation. The status quo must be fully respected by all,” he tweeted.
The Palestinian Authority called for international intervention to “halt Israeli assaults on al-Aqsa Mosque” and warned that Israel’s actions would have “grave repercussions.” Abbas was in contact with relevant parties, specifically Jordan, to pressure Israel to “stop this dangerous escalation,” said a statement issued by Abbas’s office in Ramallah.
PA government spokesman Yusef al-Mahmoud accused Israel of seeking “to carry out its schemes to control al-Aqsa Mosque and obliterate the Arab features of Jerusalem.”
PLO Executive Committee member Ahmed Majdalani urged Arab and Islamic states to take quick measures “to stop Israel from igniting fires in Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Palestine.”
He and other senior Palestinian officials also claimed that Israel was working toward dividing the Temple Mount compound between Jews and Muslims.
“Al-Aqsa Mosque is a redline,” cautioned Osama Qawassmeh, a spokesman for Abbas’s ruling Fatah faction in the West Bank. “Tampering with holy sites, especially al-Aqsa Mosque, is a direct call for violence. Fatah won’t allow Israel to carry out its schemes, regardless of the price.”
Israel has accused the Wakf of attempting to open a new mosque on the Temple Mount, by transforming a building that had been used as office space into a place of worship.
“An additional mosque will not be built on the Temple Mount,” Erdan said. “We will do everything necessary to maintain the status quo.”
On Tuesday, Israeli police finally decided to close the Temple Mount in Jerusalem after a Muslim terrorist threw a firebomb at a station of the Border Police near the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
One police officer was seriously wounded by the firebomb while Muslim worshippers engaged in a violent confrontation after police tried to arrest the perpetrator of the attack.
Tensions over full Muslim control of the Temple Mount exacerbated last week when an Israeli court in Jerusalem ordered the closure of the Mount and summoned the Wakf for an explanation about its bellicose policies.
Needless to say, the Wakf refused to comply with the court order and said Israel has no jurisdiction over the Haram al-Sharif, the Arab name for the Mount.
As reported by Israel Today on February 26, tensions over full Muslim control on the Temple Mount spiked last month after thousands of Arab Muslims chanting “Allah Hu Akbar broke the status quo on the Temple Mount again and violently entered an area known as the Golden Gate or Bab al-Rahma (Gate of Mercy) in Arabic.
The Gate had been closed to the public since 2003 when Hamas and the extremist northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel tried to set up camp at the site.
The Wakf, the Muslim custodian of the Muslim holy places on the Mount, openly encouraged the break-in and claimed “settlers” (Israeli Jews) had repeatedly tried to “defile” the Al-Aqsa mosque.
Another false claim made by the Palestinian Authority was that Israel was plotting to build a Jewish house of prayer on the Temple Mount, the holiest place in Judaism which housed the two Temples built by Jewish kings in ancient Israel.
Jordan recently expanded the Wakf council which is administering the Muslim shrines at Haram al-Sharif and added representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood, PLO and one from Turkey to the body.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Islamist Turkish dictator, has been working hard to expand his influence among Jerusalem Arabs and sees himself as the patron of Palestinian terror groups such as Hamas.
Erdogan regularly interferes in internal Israeli politics and the conflict with the Palestinian Arabs and on Tuesday accused Israel of “blatant racism” because of the so-called Nation-State Law.
“Netanyahu says that Israel is ‘a nation state not of all its citizens but only of the Jewish people,” Erdogan’s spokesman Ibrahim Kalin wrote on his Twitter account.
“I strongly condemn this blatant racism and discrimination. 1.6 million Arabs/Muslims live in Israel. Will the Western governments react or keep silent under pressure again?” he added.
The tensions over the Temple Mount have been causing an uptick in terror attacks against Israelis living in Judea and Samaria, generally referred to as the West-Bank by the media.
The Israel Security Agency or Shabak in Hebrew announced that February saw 162 terror-related attacks among them attacks with improvised explosive devices and pipe bomb attacks.
On Tuesday, hours after the shut-down of the Temple Mount, an Israeli man was almost lynched in the Jordan Valley while in Hebron IDF soldiers foiled a major knife attack when they spotted and killed a Palestinian Arab who was in the possession of a large knife and tried to enter a building where Jewish families live.
The beginning of 2019 also saw the re-introduction of shooting attacks and car-ramming attacks by Palestinian Arab terrorists.
The increase in terror is now dubbed “The Silent Intifada” by an online group called “Boomerang Fighting for Israel” (BFI).
The administrators of the group say there have been 360 terror attacks against Israelis since the outset of 2019 and call for a united strong response against terrorists and their backers.
Hamas and the Palestinian Authority are to blame for the new wave of terror since they incite the Palestinian public against Israel with lies about what Israel is doing in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
Hamas, in particular, has an interest in stirring up violence against Israelis in the city and in Judea and Samaria since it aspires to broaden the so-called ‘Great March of Return’ the continuing violent ‘demonstrations’ along the Israel-Gaza-border.
Hamas was behind the recent deadly car-ramming and shooting attacks in Samaria and Judea and also refuses to give in to the Egyptian demand to end the wave of attacks against Israel emanating from Gaza.
The Sunni Islamist terror group knows it risks a new offensive by the IDF to end the endless cycle of violence but insists on continuing the orchestrated chaos along the border with Israel.
The Jordanian regime, for its part, also has an interest in the escalating crisis about full Muslim control over the Temple Mount.
King Abdullah is under tremendous pressure to find a distraction for increasing popular unrest in Jordan which according to some observers now threatens the King’s regime.
The unrest in Jordan is related to the dire economic situation in the country and to the corruption within Abdullah’s regime.
The King now apparently uses the man-made crisis over the Temple Mount to curry favor in the eyes of his constituents since he knows that there is almost nation-wide consensus over anti-Israel measures.
The same people who during weekly demonstrations demanded a constitutional monarchy were seen demanding an end to ‘normalization’ with Israel. “Normalization is Treason” was the title of one of these demonstrations on January 31.
Then there is the Palestinian Authority which is struggling to increase its grip on Arab Jerusalem and also pursues an anti-normalization policy toward Israel.
The PA is increasingly working with Jordan to advance its anti-Israel agenda and seeks to obtain support from Arab countries for its total rejection of US President Trump’s so-called deal of the century, the not yet published new American peace initiative for the Israeli Arab conflict.
Creating new facts on the ground in Jerusalem and total control over the Temple Mount will complicate any solution for the conflict over Jerusalem the government in Ramallah knows.
ANTI-TERRORISM OFFICERS IN KAZAKHSTAN RAID TWO CHURCHES DURING SERVICES – FINING WORSHIPPERS FOR CONDUCTING PRAYERS
Anti-terrorism officers assisted by local police raided two Baptist house churches in Taraz, Kazakhstan, during worship services on Feb. 10 and 17, fining the worshippers for conducting prayers without government permission.
Three people were fined between one and two months’ worth of average wages and two other worshippers were also fined different amounts The Express reported.
Those attending the churches were warned against publicly practicing their faith – or risk further punishment.
It’s the latest suppression of religious freedom in the former Soviet republic, according to the newspaper – and an example of the unrelenting crackdown on Christianity in the Muslim-majority country.
The latest raids follow a recent Kazakhstan court’s ruling that fined another church in the Council of Churches Baptists.
The government is constantly working to maintain and increase its control over society, using surveillance, raids, and detentions. Christians are under nearly constant surveillance, and the threat of militant Islam is used as an excuse to restrict freedoms, resulting in worsening conditions for the Christian minority, according to the Open Doors USA website.
UK MPS REJECT MAY’S DEAL AGAIN: EXIT WITH ‘NO DEAL’ LOOMS
The UK parliament has again rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal after she secured legally binding assurances from Brussels on the controversial Irish ‘backstop’ – but the changes weren’t enough to placate lawmakers.
May’s deal was defeated 391 to 242 on Tuesday evening and will be followed on Wednesday by a debate and vote in the House of Commons on the prospect of the UK leaving the EU with “no deal” in place – which MPs are also expected to reject.
If that happens, MPs will vote on Thursday on extending article 50 which triggered the UK’s exit process from the EU.
A very tired sounding Theresa May says she profoundly regrets Parliament’s decision to reject her deal. Tomorrow will see a vote on whether to rule out no-deal. That will be a free vote.
Welcome to the rabbit hole.
The rabbit hole welcomes careful drivers and fish on bicycles.
— Wesley Mallin (@wesleymallin) March 12, 2019
May, who said that she “profoundly rejects” the decision taken by the house, added that Tory MPs will be given a free vote on the no-deal motion on Wednesday. She told parliament that she has struggled with the need to honor the 2016 Brexit referendum results while also getting a good deal from Brussels, adding that if MPs vote to leave with no deal, that will become official government policy.
A spokesperson for European Council President Donald Tusk said he “regretted the outcome” of the Tuesday vote and said the EU had “done all that is possible” to reach an agreement. “It is difficult to see what more we can do,” the statement said, adding that the latest vote “significantly increased” the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit.
Tusk also said the EU would consider a “reasoned request” from London for an extension of article 50, but only with “credible justification.”
Labour MPs have been calling for clarification on what will happen on March 29 – the day the UK is scheduled to officially leave the EU. SNP MPs have reiterated calls for a second referendum, saying that the time has come for May to accept that a new referendum is necessary.
In the entire history of the United States, consumers have never been in so much debt. And that would not be a crisis as long as the vast majority of us were regularly making our debt payments, but as you will see below delinquency levels are starting to rise to extremely alarming levels. In fact, some of the numbers that are coming in are even worse than we witnessed at any point during the last recession. If things are this bad already, what are they going to look like once the economy really gets bad? Because even though it appears that we are heading into a new recession, according to the Federal Reserve it has not officially begun yet. That means that much worse is yet to come. Just like last time, millions of Americans will likely lose their jobs, and without an income most of those that suddenly find themselves unemployed will not be able to pay their bills. The stage is set for the largest tsunami of consumer debt defaults that this country has ever seen, and that will absolutely devastate major financial institutions all across America. (Read More…)
Is there anything left in this country that has not been deeply tainted by corruption? By now you have probably heard that dozens of people have been arrested for participating in a multi-million dollar college admissions scam. Enormous amounts of money were paid out in order to ensure that children from very wealthy families were able to get into top schools such as Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas and the University of Southern California. We should certainly be disgusted by these revelations, but we shouldn’t be surprised. Such corruption happens every single day on every single level of society in America. At this point our nation is so far gone that it is shocking when you run into someone that actually still has some integrity. (Read More…)
