A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had "lied" about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency's stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.
On the eve of Passover, hundreds of Palestinian Arabs attacked police officers with rocks and molotov cocktails at the scene of the world's holiest Jewish place.
If it were anywhere else in the civilized world, hundreds of those who attacked police would be arrested. But in Israel, the violent terrorists continue to operate with impunity. The site was closed down for many hours,and is now open to "restrictive visitors." (Codeword for no Jews allowed.)
The left seeks to, as candidate Barack Obama promised five days before his first election, "fundamentally transform the United States of America."
That is what the left is doing. There is almost no area of American life in which the left's influence is not transformative, and ultimately destructive.
Beginning with this column I will periodically, perhaps regularly, devote this space to that transformation and destruction. My reason for doing so is that most Americans, including more than a few Republicans and more than a few Democrats, simply do not know what the left is doing to their country.
Multnomah is set to publish a book entitled, "God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships." It's written by Matthew Vines, a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist.
Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, compares the controversy to "another World Vision," referring to the relief organization's recent trouble with accepting homosexuality.
God uses death to give us life; despair brings hope; sickness gives way to health; misery shows us joy. God has placed us on the earth amongst that which is the exact opposite of what His love and goodness are, so that we can know by comparison His love for us.
Can we truly know light if we do not experience darkness? Can we really know true love if we do not know what hate is?
While it may rattle some fans of the book, Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig encourages followers of Jesus to proceed with caution when studying NDEs and, in particular, Heaven is for Real. In a podcast dedicated to the issue, Craig says:
"My concern is this: Christians, in their enthusiasm for the glimpse of heaven that is offered in the book, may begin to base their view of the afterlife and of heaven on these sorts of experiences rather than on what the Bible teaches."
While Colton's story might have us crying in the bathroom after the film, NDEs are often inconsistent with one another.

Cyber-attacks and identity theft seem a realer threat than ever before, but the tools we need to protect ourselves we have carried since birth.
Friday, we made Ryan King the most verified man in Brooklyn.

Her story also is being told in "Trapped in Hitler's Hell," a new project from WND Books, and in a WND Films documentary by the same name that explains how the winds of Nazism swept through Germany and scorched the continent with the blood of millions.
The documentary, according to Director George D. Escobar of WND Films, tells a story that is more than a history, a profile or a biography. It will be introduced at the conference.
"It's rare to see two people, Anita Dittman and [conference organizer] Jan Markell, so much in synch with one another," Escobar said. "Their collaboration produced a timeless book and now a documentary.

According to a report  in March by the Israeli daily Haaretz, Israel continues to prepare for a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. Quoting anonymous members of the Knesset who were present during hearings on the military budget, officials in the Israel Defense Force (IDF) have allegedly received instructions to continue preparing for a strike and a special budget has been allocating for that purpose. However, conducting a military operation against Iran's key nuclear facilities would be a challenging task for the Israeli military. The distance from Israel to the Iranian nuclear sites is such that any strike using the air force would be challenging on its fuel capacity. Allocating tanker planes to the mission could alleviate part of this concern. Nonetheless, Israeli jets can't spend too much time in Iranian airspace before the mission itself is in jeopardy. Engaging Iran's air force in dogfights must be avoided. Therefore, surprise will be a necessary element in a successful Israeli mission.
Conservative sage Dr. Ben Carson is claiming the White House was offended by his now-famous keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast and asked at the time for an apology call to President Obama -- which he didn't make.
The anecdote is found in Carson's upcoming book "One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future."
