As Americans paid tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed 15 years ago during the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, actor Kirk Cameron encouraged parents to teach their children the Pledge of Allegiance and talk to them about the freedoms the diverse nation thrives on.
Standing in the middle of the flag memorial at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, that represents the 2,977 people who died at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the former "Growing Pains" star encouraged his Facebook fans on Sunday to honor the nation "that our Founding Fathers gave us."
"At a beautiful display of all of these flags remembering all of the people who died in the vicious attacks of our country 15 years ago, I just wanted to say that I still pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands," Cameron says in the video that has been watched more than 454,000 times. more >>
Planned Parenthood's "abortion empire" is a "house of cards" that is falling apart, according to Dave Daleiden, the man behind the series of undercover videos purportedly showing the abortion services provider engaging in illegal activity.
Last year, Daleiden and his California-based pro-life group the Center for Medical Progress released a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood officials engaging in assorted illegal activities, especially the sale of aborted baby body parts.
At a speech Saturday afternoon at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC, Daleiden spoke about the impact of his group's undercover video campaign against Planned Parenthood. more >>
I'm absolutely pro-technology, and I was one of the lucky ones who grew up in the romantic era of receiving hand-written letters by snail mail and using Britannica Encyclopedia for my English papers.
When I was ten, my parents, who were both poor Eastern immigrants working at a laundromat and grocery stand, scraped together enough to buy a Nintendo with Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt. I was excited for my first Pentium desktop on my twelfth birthday and my very first cell phone in 1999, a Nokia the size of my face that doubled as a dumbbell.
I bought my first smartphone in 2010, considered late to the party but still just as thrilled to unlock my iPhone with the swipe of a two-year-contract. It's exciting today to see the first wave of phones that display holograms and the video games you can control with your mind; I'm not pining away with nostalgia for my unplugged childhood. I'm always ready to adjust to the newfangled contraptions of the future. I am not and never will be an alarmist who sneers at new technology. more >>
Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood in collaboration with Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' released "Sully" this weekend, and screenwriter Todd Komarnicki says the miracles of that day extended beyond the legendary landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River.
"Sully" stars Oscar winner Tom Hanks as Captain Chesley Sullenberger (Sully), Aaron Eckhart as Sully's co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Oscar nominee Laura Linney as Sully's wife, Lorrie Sullenberger.
Komarnicki based the screenplay off of Captain Sully's autobiography Highest Duty. The book and movie detail January 15, 2009, the day the world witnessed the "Miracle on the Hudson" when Captain Sully glided his disabled plane onto the waters of the Hudson River on a cold winter day saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, although Sully was being heralded a hero by the public and the media for his unprecedented aviation skills, an investigation in the days that followed threatened to destroy his reputation and his career. more >>
WASHINGTON — At the "very core" of Donald Trump is "a faith," Republican Vice Presidential Nominee and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence told hundreds of values voters Saturday morning, as he recalled a time when he and his wife prayed with the billionaire real estate mogul.
At the Family Research Council's annual Values Voters Summit, Pence assured the largely social conservative and evangelical gathering that if he is elected as the next vice president that he would "be your champion."
As some evangelicals still believe that they have to violate their conscience in order to vote for a man like Trump, Pence assured that a Trump-Pence administration will not only restore the political speech of churches, protect religious freedom, enact a 20-week abortion ban and defund Planned Parenthood, but it would also put pro-family policies at the heart of America's restoration. more >>
WASHINGTON — Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson expressed to hundreds gathered for the annual Values Voter Summit Friday his passionate distaste for secular humanism and his enthusiastic support for Donald Trump for president.
In remarks preceding the showing of a documentary titled "Torchbearer," a film in which Robertson is prominently featured and outlines how societies fall apart when they reject God, the 70-year-old A&E star did not mince words.
"When you allow men to determine for you what is right and what is wrong, when you allow men to determine what is good and what is evil, when you allow men to determine for you how much your life is worth, how much anybody's life is worth, you turn those things over to humans instead of vetting through this Bible," Robertson said, holding up a large, open Bible for all to see, at the Family Research Council's annual event held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. more >>
