Social Media Star Adalia Rose Gushes About Her Mom’s Pregnancy



by Lauren Enriquez | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com |
(LiveActionNews) – Adalia Rose, a vivacious young girl who has progeria, recently took to social media to announce to her fans her newest sibling’s upcoming birth.
In the video posted to Facebook, she sat on her mom’s lap and rubbed her burgeoning belly as she said, “All my friends have been asking if my mom’s going to have another baby. But she is!”

In keeping with her happy and outgoing personality, Adalia ended her announcement by blowing a kiss to the audience.
Adalia quickly rose to fame after her mother shared this video of her showing off her adorable and energetic dance moves last year, when Adalia was six.

Adalia’s condition, progeria, causes her to age much more quickly than the average person. This in turn means that her life expectancy is much shorter than most people. Children with progeria are typically expected to live just fourteen years.
Adalia is clearly living life to the fullest, regardless of how many years she may have left to do so. She is yet another beautiful example of how valuable every single life is.

Wknd Box Office: And So It Goes, Lucy, Hercules, A Most Wanted Man

Here is an interesting article from http://www.debbieschlussel.com/ reviewing some of the movies that came out over the past weekend. This follows this post about some of the movies from last week and THIS POST about some movies that have been released over the past few years that you might have missed! This all follows this post about guidelines to choosing good movies to watch yourself!


Wknd Box Office: And So It Goes, Lucy, Hercules, A Most Wanted Man



By Debbie Schlussel
I am not surprised that this has been the worst summer in terms of tickets sold and money made at the movies. The movies this summer have been the most underwhelming that I can remember, and this weekend is par for the course. I only really liked one new movie debuting at theaters this weekend.
andsoitgoeslucy

herculesamostwantedman

* “And So It Goes“: This is the relative best of the bunch among the new releases this weekend. And it appears to be aimed primarily at older adults and senior citizens, though I think adults of any age above 25 will like it (and the story is timeless and ageless). Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton star in this senior citizen chick flick that is very funny and which even guys will like and find entertaining. It’s cute, light, and airy–the kind of escapist movie I and many others enjoy going to the movies to see.








Douglas is an egomaniacal, rude, insensitive real estate agent who owns a set of duplex apartments in which he lives along with other tenants. He has developed a love-hate relationship with one of his tenant’s, Keaton, a nightclub singer who shares too much gloomy personal information with her audience. Douglas is trying to help clean up her act (with not so subtle constructive criticism) and also attempting to get her a higher paying gig. In the midst of all this, Douglas’ estranged son is sent to prison for nine months and the young granddaughter he never knew is dropped on him to take care of. He then pawns off the granddaughter on Keaton, who develops a loving relationship with Keaton. Eventually, they all become like a family, while Douglas and Keaton develop a romance.
As I said, this is very funny. I laughed a lot. I could have done without a scene of a dog having sex with a stuff animal (it was gross in the first of a gazillion movies I’ve seen this cheap shot in–now it’s beyond rotten). But everything else was hilarious and fun to watch. The best actor or actress in this movie is Frances Sternhagen, who cracks many of the jokes and smart alecky lines perfectly, as if she were 24 instead of 84 years old. (Eighty-year-old Frankie Valli makes a cameo in this, too.) But I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that this is directed by uber-lefty Rob Reiner. The movie moves along at a fast clip and, at just over 1.5 hours, it’s the perfect length, too.
Enjoyable and with a happy, if predictable, ending. (This is one of the few movies that is actually far better than its trailer.)
THREE REAGANS
reagancowboyreagancowboyreagancowboy


* “Lucy“: I expected better from this movie, and I’m usually a fan of Luc Besson. This isn’t a horrible movie, but it’s not a great one, either. It’s not tight and well-crafted, and below what I usually expect from Besson, who directed this. The first half of the movie is good, suspenseful, and action-packed. But the second half is a mess and bored me. The thing about science fiction movies of this ilk is that you can only suspend disbelief so much. My general rule of mental suspension of disbelief is this: only one thing can defy reality. Too many things, and I just don’t believe it or find it credible or enjoyable anymore. And that’s the case here: the one thing that would cause me to experience a credible suspension of disbelief is then topped by many others that simply aren’t credible or sensical.
In this movie, Scarlett Johansson is forcibly subjected to surgery in which a Korean mobster inserts a powerful, unusual drug into her body and then forces her to become a drug courier. But the pouch containing the drug leaks into her body, and the drug causes her to become supersmart and able to use up to 100% of her brain, which the movie tells us is far more then the proverbial 10-20% of the brain that some claim that we use (that, by the way, is a myth–we all already use 100% of our brains, according to brain surgeons and other medical professionals in the know). That Johansson becomes hypersmart and superstrong is something about which I could suspend my disbeliefs.
But, then, she starts controlling the internet, computers, phone lines, people and their guns, and all matter, and she’s able to go forward into the future, backward into the past, and able to stop time. At that point the movie becomes a silly mess I wasn’t buying. And that’s the point at which the movie begins borrowing heavily from “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Transcendence” (read my review), which most other critics panned, but which I found semi-interesting and entertaining until it, too, became an all-controlling mess just like “Lucy” (and in which Morgan “Whites Are Racist” Freeman plays a similar role as in this–come on Hollywood, stop repeating yourself like a fart).
This movie is incredibly violent. But, as with most Besson movies, there is clear good and evil, and the violence is ultimately against the bad guys. Still, I just didn’t find the movie to be as good as I was expecting it to be. Moral of the story: don’t believe the hype. Johansson and this movie are getting a lot of that. But they don’t merit it here. Not so much, anyway.
The movie isn’t objectionable, but just isn’t up to snuff. At least not to my liking.
HALF A REAGAN
halfreagan.jpg


* “Hercules“: More like, “Not Hercules.” This silly “re-imagining” of the story about the Greek demigod really has nothing to do with anything. It’s like someone made a long, boring, silly flick so that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could be half naked for 1.5 hours and get paid, and then stuck the name “Hercules” on the movie. And it’s funny that all of the Greek kings and minions–and everybody else–in the movie have English accents, while only Johnson has an American accent, and it’s never explained why (other than that he was too lazy to try one or the movie was too stupid to try to make sense).
I note that the other “Hercules” movie, “The Legend of Hercules,” which debuted early this year was panned by critics (though not by me–read my review). This makes that version look like a masterpiece.
This long bore made the 1.5 hours seem more like 15 hours. And it’s quite violent, with men being shown burned alive, lots of beheadings and dismemberments, and so on (which I’d hate to see in 3D–I saw this in 2D, but you can shell out extra bucks for the charming thrill of seeing limbs fly in your face). Lots of fighting in this “300″-wannabe, but not much in the story department. Also, a guy sticks his finger into a month-old rotting dismembered head and then eats what he digs out. Yuck.
The “story”: Hercules is a man who may or may not be the son of a god and a mortal. He may or may not have special powers. But he’s never proven any of this. He and his band of fighters doubt it and think he’s just a mighty con artist thug who can fight, just like them. And he’s a mercenary who fights for the highest bidding kings, doing their dirty work. He’s sent out to fight legions of troops who are harassing a king and his kingdom. But soon, Hercules learns he’s been set up and must discover and prove whether or not he has the powers of a demigod to fight off the evil king.
Who cares? I certainly didn’t. I couldn’t wait for this movie to end, and that was just a minute after it started (or maybe 30 seconds). Snooze-fest extraordinaire.
ONE MARX
karlmarxmovies.jpg


* “A Most Wanted Man“: The only thing you need to know about this long, boring, waste-of-time movie is that it’s based on a John Le Carre novel. As I’ve noted before on this site, the far left Le Carre a/k/a David Cornwell hates Israel and Jews and loves Muslims and Arabs, whom he sees as innocent victims of the West. Oh, and he also hates America and loves Communists to the point that he proudly declared how he nearly became a double agent for the Soviets while a member of British intelligence. Almost all of those sentiments are sharply on display here in this incredibly unthrilling “thriller.”
In his last movie, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman looks every day of his 66 years, except for the fact that he died at 46. His role in this movie shows us yet again, why he was no loss to acting or movies. It’s a mess, and so is he.
The story: a Chechen Muslim comes illegally immigrates to Germany, and a German intelligence group run by Hoffman (with a really bad German accent that he uses only about 60% of the time) is trying to use him to unwittingly frame another Muslim who is the father of another Muslim who is an informant to Hoffman. Got that? Yeah, it’s confusing, and really kinda stupid when you get to the conclusion of the movie in which nothing really happens (other than evil Americans messing everything up). On top of that, Rachel McAdams plays a German lawyer for illegal aliens who is trying to protect the Chechen Muslim and coaches him on what to say so he can get asylum (sound familiar? Texas border, anyone?). McAdams, by the way, went to the same Crappy German Accent University at which Hoffman matriculated. She is then forced by Hoffman into getting the Chechen Muslim to unwittingly frame the father of the other guy, the Muslim informant.
Throughout this, an evil American female CIA agent (Sean “Spicoli” Penn’s former wife, Robin Wright) is hovering over Hoffman, annoying him and threatening to mess up his operation with the American “exuberance” to actually catch and lock up Islamic terrorists. But, of course, the “evil,” “bigoted,” “headstrong,” “anti-Muslim” Americans don’t get that this Chechen Muslim is not a terrorist, but just a peaceful, good, innocent guy who is legitimately escaping torture he experienced at the hands of non-Muslims. I mean, isn’t that the case with all Muslim illegal aliens and immigrants to America?
Yeah, that’s the ticket. . . in John Le Carre’s warped mind. Which this movie reflects.
Alhamdulilah [praise allah] and Hollywood. And Mr. Al-Carre.

A Civilized Society

A Civilized Society



Printer-friendly version

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. said, "Taxes are what we pay for a civilized society."

Those words carry value and meaning only if "civilized" is understood as being good, happy and beneficial to all citizens. In many (if not all) lands taxes are paid, but the result has not been a society of content and happy citizens. Taxes are often misused, misspent, or siphoned off for weapons of war or some pet projects. Citizens who pay the taxes are not always better off.
Kings and rulers set the rate of taxes, and generally taxes continue to rise instead of decline. The wise ruler Solomon fell into the trap of failing to consider the society and the definition of civilized. At the end of his rule, the land was ruined and had fallen into decay and discontent (1 Kings:12:10-11). There is a civilized society coming. It will have Jesus Christ as the ruler—the King of Kings. His rule will be fair, just, kind and loving. It will be a rule that truly will be for the people. It will not be "by the people" because we have proven that rule like that cannot last long. It will be ruled by the Divine who truly serves mankind. There has never been such a government on earth—but it is coming.

YAF Alumna Katie Kieffer's new book on Obama's empty promises to millennials.  If you're looking for a good summer read, we recommend this book!
 
An Excerpt from the Introduction of Katie Kieffer's book 
 
Let Me Be ClearDear Barack Obama,
Let me begin by borrowing one of your favorite phrases. Let me be clear:  I am a young American and I am writing on behalf of my generation. We are the Millennial Generation and we are 95 million strong…You promised us jobs, hope, and change.  In the end, you followed through only on the "change."
You duped Millennials…not once but twice and implemented unconstitutional decrees that robbed us of the opportunities that we deserve. We are the first generation of Americans to be financially worse off than our parents. Your puerile policies and pomposity have rendered it nearly impossible for us to achieve the American Dream.
You chatted it up with our favorite hosts like Fallon, Leno, and Stewart; you seemed like a nice, regular guy and Millennials trusted you. You saturated social media with false hope. You endorsed voyeuristic YouTube videos by Hollywood celebrities targeted at college students for your presidential campaign.
With the aid of your teleprompter, you traveled the college-campus circuit, promising us that you would help us find jobs when we graduated and that you  would make college more affordable; you encouraged us all to go to college and twisted our arms to take out massive loans. Meanwhile, your administration was profiting off our backs.        
Law school students acquired colossal debt and passed the bar exam only to end up working as coffee baristas; Ivy league graduates   applied for third-rate jobs just to get by; and youth abandoned their dreams as  nurses, doctors, and surgeons to take  mind-numbing but higher-paying office jobs within the government.          
You told us that you were reforming health care and making it more affordable, but you did not tell young medical students how hard it would be for them to care for their patients or make a profit as physicians under Obamacare. We thought you were being "transparent" when you told us we could keep our doctor and our health-care plan if we liked it; we didn't realize you had your fingers crossed behind your back.          
You promised to create 7 million new jobs and to help entrepreneurs of my generation become "the next Steve Jobs." Then you hardly worked on the economy at all; you spent nearly twice as much time on the golf course as you did in economic meetings.          
Meanwhile, my generation of highly educated Americans was underemployed and drowning in the student debt that you advised us to take out. Our credit was terrible; we couldn't buy homes and we often had nowhere to turn but our parents' basements. We put off marriage, and many of us will delay parenthood for so long that we may never see our own grandchildren.        
You sent young men and women into hopeless battles where they had their limbs blown off by savage brutes and earned an epidemic of PTSD. When these brave troops returned home, you withheld their benefits and imprisoned them unjustly- sending them spiraling into suicidal depression.        
You rendered my entire generation defenseless and vulnerable to terror and violence; you attacked our Second Amendment rights; you threatened to hunt us down with lethal drone force; you allowed young Americans to die in easily preventable terror attacks.        
Your administration lied to my friends about guns in order to buy their votes. You did not just mislead; you are culpable for setting us against each other and creating an aura of distrust that clouds our relationships; you are accountable for promoting gun regulations that left us susceptible to mass violence in our schools and workplaces.          
You were the Executive Con Man of one gigantic pyramid scheme where young people hustled to knock on doors…in both 2008 and 2012 only to be forgotten by you…you prioritized getting down in a dance-off with Usher; jetting off to play eighteen holes with Tiger; and eavesdropping on journalists with Holder.
You shirked responsibility for the misery you imposed on my generation. Your economic, social, and national security policies have left both literal and metaphorical bloodstains on your hands for killing the hopes, careers, and dreams of young Americans for your own political gain.          
Your administration's lies and incompetence anger me on my own behalf and on behalf of my friends. You have done such extensive damage to my generation that I decided to share and expose our story. You are now accountable to us. I expect you to read this book; I believe you will find it quite eye-opening.

                                                                        Sincerely,
                                                                        Katie Kieffer

Riddles

An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/  about Russia and Great Britain.

Riddles





One of the greatest statesmen the world has known stated, "Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside of an enigma" (Winston Churchill).

I am sure that some Russian statesmen feel they can say the same about Britain. In fact, almost every nation seems almost impossible to understand. The Italians are unique, as are the Greeks. The French differ from the Germans—and nobody understands the other it seems.
The kind of understanding that can prevent wars comes only from the long and steady exchange of ideas and thoughts and clarification of motives, plans and actions that are taken. Mankind has rarely found that—but there are nations who do live peacefully side by side. God promises the time will come when nations will no longer learn war (Isaiah:2:3-4). They will have learned His ways and flow towards His holy temple. Then riddles will no longer exist among nations.

National Protests Against Illegal Immigration Erupt due to Luis Gutierrez Insult

National Protests Against Illegal Immigration Erupt due to Luis Gutierrez Insult

For National Release

July 22, 2014
James Neighbors, Founder of Overpasses For America (405) 788-0266
William Gheen, President of ALIPAC (866) 703-0864


Representatives from among the more than 50 organizations that recently conducted protests against illegal immigration in more than 300 locations nationwide have announced a new larger wave of protests to take place October 24-25, 2014, in response to Congressman Luis Gutierrez's (D-IL) comments about using amnesty for illegals to punish Americans who oppose illegal immigration!

These historic protests against illegal immigration and Congressman Gutierrez's comments about using amnesty to punish Americans will begin outside of district offices of Republican members of Congress who support Gutierrez's and Eric Cantor's immigration amnesty plans. These preceding protests will take place in Tennessee, Washington State, and Michigan on Sat. Aug 2, in Wisconsin on Sat. Aug 9, in Florida on Sat. Aug 23, then in every state October 24 and 25.

Please visit this link to see a complete list of protest locations for Aug 2-25.

"It is time for Americans to unify against immigration reform amnesty and to punish outlandish and corrupt politicians like Luis Gutierrez in the 2014 elections!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Our goal now is to throw every Republican and Democrat who supports immigration reform amnesty instead of our existing borders and laws out of office this year!"

"Representative Luis Gutierrez should resign or face censure by the Congress for his comments that are inappropriate for any elected official or government employee paid by our taxes!" said James Neighbors, founder of Overpasses for America. "The idea that any elected official would even attempt to punish any group of Americans for their political views is not the American way!"

The temporarily named National Illegal Immigration Protest Coalition (NIIPC) would like to work with any sizable organization that is peaceful and racially inclusive as all of the existing groups are. Please visit the master event list (click Here) to see protest times, locations, and amnesty supporting politicians identified.
