Jeremy Courtney – The World is a Scary Place, Love Anyway

“Love Anyway.” This two-word provocation – how far does it go? Does it apply when you’re standing face to face with your enemy? Or after airstrikes lay you flat on your back? Even in a world filled with tyrants and terror, we should aim to not be ruled by fear. Punching fear in the face does not give birth to love. It’s just another way of continuing to fight. From the front lines of Syria and Iraq, where he has lived for more than a decade, Jeremy Courtney brings stories of the love and hope that live on the other side of fear and death. The world is a scary place, how do we love anyway?

Jeremy Scahill: “Dirty Wars” | Talks at Google

Jeremy Scahill comes to Google to talk about his new book, Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield.
In Dirty Wars, Jeremy Scahill, author of the New York Times bestseller Blackwater: The World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, takes us inside America’s new covert wars. The foot soldiers in these battles operate globally and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies.

Drawn from the ranks of the Navy SEALs, Delta Force, former Blackwater and other private security contractors, the CIA’s Special Activities Division, and the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), these elite soldiers operate worldwide, with thousands of secret commandos working in more than one hundred countries. Funded through “black budgets,” Special Operations Forces conduct missions in denied areas, engage in targeted killings, snatch and grab individuals, and direct drone, AC-130, and cruise missile strikes. While the Bush administration deployed these ghost militias, President Barack Obama has expanded their operations and given them new scope and legitimacy.

Dirty Wars follows the consequences of the declaration that “the world is a battlefield,” as Scahill uncovers the most important foreign policy story of our time. From Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia, and beyond, Scahill reports from the frontlines in this high-stakes investigation and explores the depths of America’s global killing machine. He goes beneath the surface of America’s covert wars, conducted in the shadows, outside the range of the press, without effective congressional oversight or public debate. And, based on unprecedented access, Scahill tells the story of an American citizen marked for assassination by his own government.As US leaders draw the country deeper into conflicts across the globe, setting the world stage for enormous destabilization and blowback, Americans are not only at greater risk—we are changing as a nation. Scahill unmasks the shadow warriors who prosecute these secret wars and puts a human face on the casualties of unaccountable violence that is now official policy: victims of night raids, secret prisons cruise missile attacks and drone strikes, and whole classes of people branded as “suspected militants.” Through his reporting, he exposes the true nature of the dirty wars the United States government struggles to keep hidden.

About the Author: Jeremy Scahill is National Security Correspondent for The Nation magazine and is a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute.He is the writer, with David Riker, and a producer of the documentary feature film, Dirty Wars, which won the Cinematography Award for U.S. Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2013.

Scahill has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Nigeria, Yemen, the former Yugoslavia and elsewhere across the globe.

Scahill’s work has sparked several Congressional investigations and won some of journalism’s highest honors.

In 2013, Scahill was named one of nine recipients of the Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes at Yale University.

Judging Rightly – James 4:11-12 – Jeremy Vuolo

Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
James 4:11-12

Jeremy Runnells RESIGNS from the LDS Church

Views:19833|Rating:4.01|View Time:7:1Minutes|Likes:277|Dislikes:68
After dedicating his whole life to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the principles of the gospel of which the Lord through His son Jesus Christ has proclaimed, only to be repeatedly kicked in the rear and punched in the mouth merely for asking questions in which his church leaders are obliged to answer, Brother Runnells gave a bombshell during his scheduled Court of Love on charges of what the True Restored Church of Jesus Christ and its leaders consider “apostasy”.

There was once a governor named Pontius Pilate who, when a man accused of apostasy and spreading false doctrine was brought before him, declared, “I find no fault in this man!”. The church that brought this action is named in honor of Him.

Maybe you remember the story of Abinadi, brought before King Noah.

Thousands of years later, the event is re-created, with Mark Ivins playing the role of King Noah and Brother Runnells as Abinadi. Except that the ending is less violent.
