Donald Trump surrogate, Rev. Omarosa Manigault, who shot to reality stardom for her villainous turn on "The Apprentice" said Wednesday that anyone who eventually becomes president after the election season will be ordained by God.
Preaching a mini sermon from Romans 13 at Al Sharpton's National Action Network convention in New York City, Manigault, vice chairwoman of the national diversity coalition for the Republican presidential frontrunner's campaign, also said the most important name to her is the name of Jesus Christ.
"Romans 13 tells us that there is no authority but that that God ordains. And so now no matter what side of the aisle that you're on whether you're Republican or Democrat, independent. Whether you're with Bernie or with Sandy, it doesn't matter. What matters is that no matter who goes in office every knee shall bow and every tongue must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Amen?" said Manigault with religious fervor. more >>
NEW YORK — With pitch perfect poise and aplomb, Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton seemed to glide to the podium at the National Action Network's convention on Wednesday as the audience enveloped her in cheers.
She smiled and seemed to soak it all in like a contestant in a beauty pageant as she acknowledged the organization's founder, civil rights leader, Al Sharpton.
Shortly before her arrival, Armstrong Williams, a longtime confidante of retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who recently dropped out of the Republican presidential race had taken a shot at her. more >>
NEW YORK — Armstrong Williams, longtime confidante of retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, drew the wrath of attendees at Al Sharpton's National Action Network convention in New York City Wednesday when he was roundly booed for declaring "everything in America is not about race."
Williams, who appeared on a panel with other speakers such as John Podesta, chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, also criticized the Democratic presidential frontrunner and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, shortly before she also addressed the same crowd.
"The good thing about life is people can make many promises and we can trust them with our vote. We can trust them with our money and our time. And you get to a point where you ask yourself — who are the people benefiting from your commitment, your time and your resources?" he asked the crowd which had already began to grow restless inside the Metropolitan East Ballroom at the Sheraton Times Square. more >>
The criminal charges against a New York City pastor who congregants accused of taking money from the church's offering plate at least nine different times last year have been dropped after the pastor claimed he used the money for church-related expenses.
Pastor Daniel Impaglia of the evangelical Rock Church in Manhattan's Upper East Side was arrested and charged with petit larceny last November after congregants claimed to have video evidence of him stealing from the church offering.
Although congregants charged that the 71-year-old Impaglia stole church donations at least nine different times between Oct. 28 and Nov. 21, 2016, Impaglia refused to resign as the church's pastor despite some members insisting on his resignation. more >>
