Published

The popular Florida televangelist — and President Donald Trump’s spiritual advisor — Paula White has put her son Brad Knight in charge of the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, reports the Christian Post.

She explained her decision to congregants.

“From the day that I came here, which was, you guys know the story. One day I’ll share everything about how Dr. Zach, thank you Dr. Zach for the price you paid to be a founder and found this ministry and the faithfulness,” White said. As the Post notes, she was making a reference to Zachery Tims, who suffered a fatal overdose in New York City in 2011.

“You know many people, elder knows this, but we go way, way back. I knew Dr. Zach in Baltimore and just the eagerness as a son,” she continued.

“Prophetically he gave me a word prophet, that in 2005 I was in New York and he calls me, ‘Ma, ma, where are you?’ and I said ‘I’m in New York.’ ‘Are you OK?’ And he prophesies to me a word that wouldn’t make sense in 2005. Writes it down. But it would make sense in 2019,” she said. “And sometimes the prophetic like that it seems mysterious. It won’t make sense at that moment. And everything that he prophesied would come to pass to bring this to this point. And I will share that in the fullness [of time].”

While her son helms the church, White plans to open 3,000 more along with a university.

Fox News has always been bad — but this week shows it’s willing to destroy democracy for Trump

Published

on

Fox News has been detrimental to democracy all along, but one journalist and historian believes it's gone fully off the rails this year and become a threat to national security.

Talk show host Stephen Colbert has been mocking the conservative network's commitment to "truthiness" for nearly 15 years, but 2019 has seen Fox News push out Russian disinformation campaigns and attack democracy itself to defend President Donald Trump from impeachment, reported Garrett Graff for Wired.

Donald Trump Jr. got special permission from the Mongolian government to kill endangered sheep — on your tax dollars

Published

on

The rocky highlands of Central Asia, in a remote region of Western Mongolia, are home to a plummeting population of the largest sheep in the world, the argali. The endangered species is beloved for its giant curving horns, which can run over 6 feet in length.

On a hunting trip this August, Donald Trump Jr. shot and killed one.

His adventure was supported by government resources from both the U.S. and Mongolia, which each sent security services to accompany the president’s eldest son and grandson on the multiday trip. It also thrust Trump Jr. directly into the controversial world of Mongolian trophy hunting — a polarizing practice in a country that views the big-horned rams as a national treasure. The right to kill an argali is controlled by an opaque permitting system that experts say is mostly based on money, connections and politics.

I thought Democrats were making a giant mistake on impeachment — but these experts changed my mind

Published

on

On Tuesday, Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives announced that they would move forward with two articles of impeachment — involving abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — against President Donald Trump.

At first, I shared the frustration of many liberals and progressives that these articles are too limited in scope, and leave a great many of Trump’s apparent misdeeds unmentioned. But further reflection and exchanges with legal experts have convinced me that appearance is misleading. In fact, Democrats have performed a deft feat. In a single stroke — OK, two strokes — they have elevated the process of holding Trump accountable above the realm of partisan politics, and have also given the Democratic nominee (whoever that is) an excellent case to use against Trump in next year’s presidential election. The challenge for Democrats going forward will be to keep that nonpartisan outlook in mind — while understanding that, ultimately and unfortunately, the only possible way to hold Trump accountable will be through partisan politics.
