This day in WND history: NBC show stars Jesus, pill-popping priest
WND-20-YearsaidanquinnNBC show stars Jesus, pill-popping priest Dec. 11, 2005: NBC began promoting a new weekly show centering around a troubled, pill-popping Episcopal priest played by veteran actor Aidan Quinn, who talked with a manifestation of Jesus, played by Garret Dillahunt. “The Book of Daniel,” written by a homosexual, was touted as the riskiest new show of the year. It was also billed as the only show on television in which Jesus appeared as a recurring character. On Jan. 23, 2006, WND broke the exclusive story that NBC was canceling the show, in the wake of pressure from viewers and the American Family Association. “This shows the average American that he doesn’t have to simply sit back and take the trash being offered on TV, but he can get involved and fight back with his pocketbook,” said Donald Wildmon, chairman of the AFA.

Hey Millennials: You want socialism? Read this
Joseph StalinJoseph Stalin Rasputin, described as “The Holy Devil,” moved to St. Petersburg in 1906 and began to gain access to the royal family of Tsar Nicholas II. Posing as a mystic, Rasputin was known for strange prophecies, claims of superstitious healing powers, and sexual excesses. As the Tsar and his family came under Rasputin’s spell, the monarch’s credibility suffered, his authority was undermined, and public distrust spread. At this time, Tsar Nicholas escalated his father’s policy of restricting Jews and implimented a full anti-Jewish “pogrom” of cruel persecution. More then two millions Jews fled, many to the United States. It was a tragedy, which, in a way, spared them future Russian tragedies. World War I started in 1914. Fighting raged from Europe to the Middle East. The Tsar sent three million Russian soldiers west to fight Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II. Unprepared to face German heavy artillery, over 78,000 Russians were killed or wounded and over 90,000 captured at the Battle of Tannenberg, Aug. 26-30, 1914. Within a year, over 1.4 million Russian soldiers were killed and nearly a million captured. Russian General Denikin described: “The German heavy artillery swept away whole lines of trenches, and their defenders with them. We ... read more

Wrong decision in wedding-cake case could ‘be turned around’
U.S. Supreme CourtU.S. Supreme Court The Supreme Court will probably not render a decision for months on the case of a Colorado baker being sued for refusing to bake and decorate a cake for a same-sex wedding, but the legal team representing the baker says the Constitution is clearly on his side and he is encouraged by some of the comments of the justice likely to swing the outcome. Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF, represents Masterpiece Cakeshop Owner Jack Phillips and several other clients who contend their sincerely held religious beliefs on marriage preclude them from providing services for a same-sex wedding. Phillips points out that he willingly serves homosexual customers so long as they are not asking him to affirm same-sex marriage. In addition, Phillips refuses to provide cakes for heterosexual bachelor and bachelorette parties or for weddings that constitute a second heterosexual marriage. But David Mullins and Charlie Craig see it differently. When Phillips refused to decorate a cake for their same-sex ceremony, they complained to state officials who filed suit against Masterpiece Cakeshop for refusing service to the men based on their sexual orientation. Understand what makes a liberal tick. “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness,” by ... read more

Trump Continues to Disrespect FBI
President Donald Trump's escalating assault on the "rigged" and "sick" institutions of the government that he leads may portend an ominous end game to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Trump's blast at a campaign rally on Friday night followed a week of rising attacks on Mueller and the FBI from pro-Trump media outlets and personalities and prominent conservatives in Congress. The President did not name Mueller at the boisterous event in Pensacola, Florida, avoiding specific attacks on the probe after a flurry of furious tweets last weekend may have deepened his political and legal exposure. But he enriched his building narrative that unnamed forces within the US government were thwarting his administration, just days after unloading on the FBI on Twitter, when he said the bureau's reputation was in "tatters." ... read more

Watch: AL.com Columnist Ripped on CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ for Asking If Roy Moore Was Gay
Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” a panel, featuring AL.com columnist Kyle Whitmire, Huntsville, AL radio talk host Dale Jackson and The Washingtonian’s Elaina Plott, analyzed the role of the media in week’s U.S. Senate special election in Alabama. Stelter wondered why some Alabamians are still supporting Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore, despite allegations against that he acted inappropriately toward underage females decades ago. Whitmire argued media queries often reinforced why Moore’s base supported him. Jackson responded by pointing out how Moore and President Donald Trump have had success weaponizing the term “fake news,” and argued that the media had itself to blame. Jackson pointed to a 2015 AL.com column from Whitmire in which a poll question was included about Moore’s sexuality, and suggested it was media attacks like that as to why many Alabama voters don’t trust the media. Partial transcript as follows: BRIAN STELTER, HOST, CNN’S “RELIABLE SOURCES’: So, let’s talk about what the next 48 hours of campaigning in store and what could happen Tuesday night. Kyle Whitmire is here. He’s a state political columnist for The Alabama Media Group.

Twice-closed probe reopened into Russian czar’s death
RussianParade3 More than 50 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, conspiracy theories continue to roil, including claims of another gunman and the involvement of the CIA, the Soviet Union or the Mafia. But that may all pale in comparison to the Russian investigations into the deaths of Czar Nicholas II and his family back in 1918, which have spanned more than a century, says a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin. Recently, when some of the secret documents about Kennedy’s death were released, R. James Woolsey, the respected former CIA director, singled out a theory put forward by Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking defector from the Soviet bloc during the Cold War era. The former communist spy chief believes assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was at first recruited by the Soviet KGB to kill Kennedy. Woolsey said many Eastern-bloc intelligence officials believed Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev became furious at Kennedy for making him “look bad” during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and ordered the murder. But Woolsey said it appears Khrushchev “got cold feet” and called off the operation, fearing a war with the U.S. Everyone else dropped the idea, but Oswald, a devoted Marxist-Leninist, continued. The ongoing investigation into ... read more
