The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“The Jezebel spirit opened our event, This is a rebuke and a correction of no one. This is an observation. Before the word of God was opened, there was a platform. It was a high place. On it was a pole, an Asherah, the same thing that’s used in a strip club for women who have the Jezebel spirit to seduce men." Pastor Mark Driscoll of Trinity Church

Quote I

“I don’t think, at this point, that the United States should be engaged in a military action directly at Iran. But I do believe that if this administration fails to step up to the plate and understand that we have an escalating conflict and make it clear to Iran that there are red lines, and that the United States will defend Israel and will not allow Iran to become a weapon state, that we will be in a broader conflict and we will have less options.” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner (R-OH)


Quote III

“When our policymakers fail to call out our enemies or acknowledge the importance of our alliances, the world is less safe. That is why Hudson’s work is so critical,” Nimarata Nikki Randhawa Haley

Everything you know is wrong.

Suspected Iranian agent working for Pentagon while U.S. coordinated defense of Israel

Frustration is swirling on Capitol Hill following a top Defense Department official’s revelation that a suspected Iranian influence agent remained on the job at the Pentagon last week while U.S. national security officials were coordinating international efforts to defend Israel from a coming Iranian attack.

Sparks flew during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing last week when Assistant Secretary of Defense Christopher Maier told lawmakers that Ariane Tabatabai remained at work in an office overseeing special operations and irregular warfare despite concerns from lawmakers that she has operated at the behest of the Iranian regime.

Suspicion among lawmakers about Ms. Tabatabai’s potential participation in a hidden effort directed by the Iranian regime first came to the fore last year when alleged details about her appeared in a trove of emails from Iranian diplomats spanning from 2003 to 2021 that were published by news outlets.

I saw this story and just had to snicker.

HUNDREDS of H&R Block customers reported issues on Tax Day with the company's website earlier this morning.

Over 900 H&R Block users flooded Downdetector to report problems at around 8 am ET Monday.

H&R Block officially resolved the problem after the tax filing service gave customers issues all day.

Feel free to pay taxes which go to illegal immigrants so they can be legally represented.

LANSING – The Whitmer administration proposes spending $8 million in the upcoming fiscal year to fund legal services that could be lifesaving for immigrants seeking asylum.

The money would help pay for attorneys to represent them in immigration proceedings.


Asylum is a legal form of protection that allows immigrants to live in the United States if they fear persecution in their home country, according to the UN Refugee Agency.

That protection gives asylum-seekers a set of rights that other non-citizens are ineligible for, such as the ability to work and apply for social security and Medicaid. In addition, they can request asylum for some immediate relatives.

The proposed budget would provide more money for nonprofit legal services directly impacting them.
