Embedded Advisors are Key to winning against the Islamic State

 By Dr. Don Boys   --Christianity - Religion

How can Americans defend our history of slavery? We can’t! American enslavement of blacks is an inconvenient truth that has no defense. Yes, there is plenty of guilt for everyone including the black chiefs who sold other blacks for hundreds of years before Arab slavers approached the African coast. But that does not absolve others of the horrible guilt.

 By David C. Jennings   --World News

Dawn raids on glass towered corporate offices from Zurich to Miami! Indictments, extradition proceedings, executives in jail! But meanwhile the Kingpin of the entire operation puts on a brave face and says he will clean up the corruption, the same cleaning up he’s been promising for over a decade.
