Pray for Christians in Yemen about war, food shortage and COVID
Christians living in Yemen, the country just south of Saudi Arabia, request prayer as they experience persecution amidst ongoing war, food shortages, and COVID-19, reports International Christian Concern.
These challenges have created a significant burden of isolation, both spiritually and physically. The Christian population, which once numbered approximately 40,000, has been reduced to only a few thousand. Most live unaware of each other’s existence and in great fear of discovery from their Muslim neighbors.
After so many years of hardship, many Yemenis are spiritually hungry for answers. Pastors working in Yemen report an openness to the Gospel message that encourages them for the future of the church.
Romans 10:13-15 says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News!’”
Sen. Hawley vows support for anti-Roe v. Wade Supreme nominees
Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri has vowed to make a Supreme Court nominee’s opposition to Roe v. Wade the litmus test for confirming him to the nation’s highest court. The 1973 landmark ruling essentially imposed legal abortion across the country, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
HAWLEY: “Roe is an illegitimate decision. It has no basis in the constitution. None. None of the Constitution’s specific and enumerated guarantees of privacy even begin to legitimize the taking of innocent human life.
“I say today, I will vote only for those Supreme Court nominees who have explicitly acknowledged that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided — the day it was decided. I mean, on the record before they are nominated.
“I do not want private assurances. I do not seek them. I want evidence that Supreme Court nominees will obey the Constitution and the law. I want to see in the record clear acknowledgement that any nominee understands Roe to be the travesty that it is. And if that record is not there, then I will not support the nomination. I don’t care who does the nominating.”
Hawley explicitly numbered Roe v. Wade with two other wrong and immoral decisions of the Supreme Court: Dred Scott v. Sandford on withholding citizenship from black people, and Plessy v. Ferguson on having racially segregated public facilities.
D.C. police arrest pro-lifers for “Black Preborn Lives Matter” chalking
Two activists with Students for Life of America were arrested Saturday morning while peacefully attempting to chalk “BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER” outside of the Planned Parenthood megacenter in the nation’s capital, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
Michelle Hendrickson of Students for Life was understandably upset at the double standard. While Democratic D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the D.C. police allowed the left-wing group Black Lives Matter to paint their message, they discriminated against the pro-life group even though they were only going to use tempera paint.
Proverbs 11:1 says, “The LORD detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with Him.”
Listen to a D.C. policeman threaten them with arrest.
POLICEMAN: “I’m here to tell you that if you paint in the street, you’ll be placed under arrest.”
And listen now as Michelle Hendrickson of Students for Life describes the discrepancy.
HENDRICKSON: “We’re out here at the D.C. Planned Parenthood. We were prepared to do our street painting as part of our ‘Black Preborn Lives Matter’ campaign. We’re told that we would be arrested if we started painting on the street. We just want to express our First Amendment right, as every other group has been painting in the street.
“We know that the mayor has allowed other groups to paint in the street, whatever their message is. Maybe based on the location, based on the message, we were told no. Our students were told that we would be arrested for doing the very same thing that other groups have done.”
Though only 13 percent of the female population, African-American women kill 38 percent of the unborn babies who die by abortion.
One-third of U.S. restaurants face permanent closure
A new forecast projects that one in three U.S. restaurants may close permanently this year, showing how the COVID-19 pandemic is decimating an industry that employs millions of Americans, reports Bloomberg.
The pro-hydroxy message censored by Facebook and Twitter
And finally, on July 27th, Facebook removed a video posted by Breitbart News, which was the top-performing Facebook post in the world a week ago Monday, of a press conference in front of the Supreme Court in D.C. held by the group America’s Frontline Doctors and organized and sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots, reports Breitbart.com.
The press conference featured Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) and frontline doctors sharing their views on the coronavirus and the medical response to the pandemic. YouTube (which is owned by Google) and Twitter subsequently removed footage of the press conference as well.
The video accumulated over 17 million views during the eight hours it was hosted on Facebook, with over 185,000 concurrent viewers.
IMMANUEL: “I’m here because I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID. Patients that have diabetes, patients that have high blood pressure, patients that have asthma, old people. I think my oldest patient is 92. And the results has been the same. I put them on hydroxychloroquine. I put them on zinc. I put them on Zithromax. And they’re all well.
“For the past few months, I have taken care of over 350 patients and we have not last one — not a diabetic, not a somebody with high blood pressure, not somebody with asthma, not an old person. We have not lost one patient.
“And, on top of that, I put myself, my staff, and many doctors that I know, on hydroxychloroquine for prevention, because by the very mechanism of action it works early and as a prophylaxis – [action taken to prevent disease]. We see patients, 10 to 15 COVID patients, every day. We give them breathing treatments. We only wear surgical masks. None of us has gotten sick. It works. So, right now, I came here to Washington to say ‘America, it works. Nobody needs to die!’”
The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons has submitted additional evidence to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the Food & Drug Administration in hopes of compelling the agency to relax its restrictions on the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 among the general public, reports LifeSiteNews.com.

Chicago journalist documents Soros funding of liberal prosecutors
A veteran journalist has refused to back down after he was publicly accused of “religious bigotry” for reporting on the connections between increases in violence around the U.S. and the political donations of globalist billionaire George Soros, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
John Kass, who has spent 35 years working as a columnist and political reporter for the Chicago Tribune, has penned a defense of his July 22 article “Something Grows in the Big Cities Run by Democrats: An Overwhelming Sense of Lawlessness” after the Chicago Tribune Union Guild reacted to the article by sending an open letter to all Tribune staff arguing that Kass “does not deserve a mainstream voice, especially at a time when hate crimes are rising.”
Kass’s article highlighted that “President Donald Trump is sending federal law enforcement into the big cities run by Democratic mayors, where murder and gang shootings are out of control” and that “these Democratic cities are also where left-wing billionaire George Soros has spent millions of dollars to help elect liberal social justice warriors as prosecutors.”
The Chicago Tribune Union Guild accused him of writing an “odious, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that billionaire George Soros is a puppet master controlling America’s big cities.”
But Kass has pointed out that his article “did not mention Soros’ ethnicity or religion” and that “Soros’ influence on these races is undeniable and has been widely reported.”
Last year, he invested $5.1 million in a super-PAC dedicated to funding groups working against Trump’s re-election.
Former NY Times columnist: “The cancel culture” is “social murder”
Former New York Times columnist Bari Weiss likened cancel culture to “social murder” on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night, arguing it isn’t about criticism but “punishment”, reports TheHill.com.
“We’re used to criticism. Criticism is kosher in the work that we do,” said Weiss, who resigned from The New York Times last month in a public letter to publisher A.G. Sulzberger.
“Criticism is great. What cancel culture is about is not criticism. It is about punishment. It is about making a person radioactive. It is about taking away their job,” Weiss told Maher. “The writer Jonathan Rauch [of The Atlantic] called it social murder. And I think that’s right.”
Muslim Dem. Congresswoman Omar faces tough primary challenger
Facing a political newcomer who raised a jaw-dropping $3.2 million last quarter — much of it from pro-Israel donors who oppose Democratic Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s foreign policy stances — Omar suddenly finds herself on the defensive against claims that she’s too divisive to effectively represent the solidly Democratic district, reports Politico.com.
“We don’t need someone distracted with Twitter fights,” said primary challenger Antone Melton-Meaux, who pledges to focus on local issues and avoid the spotlight. “I don’t want to be a celebrity. I want to serve the people, and people are tired of the politics of division and distraction.”
The first Black Muslim woman to serve in Congress, Omar has built an image as a progressive champion who isn’t afraid to stand up to Trump. The president, in turn, has frequently singled out the freshman lawmaker, disparaging her as an anti-Semite, an “America-hating socialist”.
