Catholic bishop to rain down ‘holy water’ from helicopter in ‘mass exorcism’ over city

A Catholic bishop is reaching for new heights to save a city wrought with “evil.”

After the brutal murder of a 10-year-old girl in a port city in Colombia, Monsignor Rubén Darío Jaramillo Montoya, the bishop of Buenaventura, announced he will perform a mass exorcism over the city beset with violence, drug smuggling, and poverty this weekend, The Guardian reported.

“We have to drive the devil out of Buenaventura, to see if we can restore the peace and tranquility that our city has lost due to so many crimes, acts of corruption and with so much evil and drug trafficking that invades our port,” Montoya told the local radio station.

He added: “We want to go around the whole of Buenaventura, from the air, and pour holy water on to it to see if we exorcise and get out all those demons that are destroying our port, so that God’s blessing comes and gets rid of all the wickedness that is in our streets.”

Colombia’s army reportedly offered the bishop a helicopter for the mass exorcism during the feast day of Buenaventura’s patron saint.

South America’s largest Pacific seaport was named as the country’s most violent place in 2014 by Human Rights Watch, which said it is “dominated by powerful criminal groups that commit widespread abuses, including abducting and dismembering people, sometimes while still alive, then dumping them in the sea.”

The local Catholic church reported eyewitness accounts containing gruesome details of “chop-up houses” where they slaughter victims.

While there has been an improvement since the report, homicides are up from last year, prompting a “pastoral emergency” from the Vatican-backed International Association of Exorcists.

Kristan Hawkins: American Medical Association shows clear bias in abortion lawsuit

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6050842499001_6050844768001-vs Kristan Hawkins: American Medical Association shows clear bias in abortion lawsuit Kristan Hawkins fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox-news/opinion fox-news/faith-values/faith fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 6b145aa3-c112-56ae-b4af-ca9d559db77d

When Planned Parenthood handed out their attendance stickers to the Democratic field of candidates who recently joined the abortion vendor in calling for taxpayer funding of abortions without late-term limits, their political power and influence was on full display. But a recent move by the American Medical Association shows that the billion-dollar enterprise has integrated itself into all kinds of institutions believed to be less biased about the politics of abortion.

Recently, the American Medical Association sued the state of North Dakota for attempting to tell women that if they act quickly, they can reverse the impact of the chemical abortion drugs.

The abortion industry despises these kinds of laws that let women know that a choice for chemical abortion can be reversed. The process involves interrupting the deadly effects of two drugs.

This first drug, Mifepristone, acts to block progesterone receptors, essentially starving the baby of needed progesterone. Then a second drug, misoprostol (Cytotec), is taken to force a miscarriage.

But medical science has come a long way in addressing miscarriage, leading to the current legal drama.

In 2009, Dr. George Delgadowas medical director at Culture of Life Family Health Care and the regional medical director of The Elizabeth Hospice, a nonprofit hospice in San Diego, got a call on behalf of a woman who had taken the first of the two chemical abortion drugs and regretted it. She was looking for answers about whether it was too late to help her baby.

“I started thinking about my years of experience with progesterone, and how I’d used progesterone to try to prevent miscarriage,” Delgado told fellow physicians at a pro-life medical conference. He went on to develop a protocol to counteract the drugs with extra progesterone.

Testifying in Colorado in 2017 on the issue, Delgado said that since that time, “(A)bout 250 babies have been born after reversal and approximately 100 women are currently pregnant after reversal. Our success rates with our best protocols are 65-70 percent while our overall success rate is 50-55 percent. These rates are much better than the15 percent survival rate if a mother takes mifepristone and does nothing.”

Expanding informed consent for abortion to include the fact that taking one pill might not be the end of a baby’s life is critical today as abortion vendors work to sell the drugs online, without medical supervision, and as politicians in California work again to require college and university health centers to become abortion vendors, handing out RU-486 on campuses. Students for Life, with more than 90 groups on college campuses in California alone has been fighting this every step of the way because of the dangers to women, as I testified recently.

Add to that the abortion industry’s coordinated push to reduce FDA-required protections for women taking RU-486, it’s clear even more women will need to know all the facts about how their bodies may be impacted.

Sadly, the AMA will not be the champion of women looking for answers, despite the guidelines for informed consent discussed in the AMA Journal of Ethics. An ethical doctor will include information about their personal or economic interests in giving advice and “a physician must also explain any benefits or risks that may be significant to the particular patient.”

Given how many women regret their abortions, letting them know that taking that first abortion pill isn’t their last choice for the baby is significant information. With more and more Americans expressing pro-life sentiments, it’s natural that pro-life policies will make their way into law and that women’s broader interests such as for health and safety protections and informed consent will be prioritized.

This struggle to inform women about their bodies and the impact of deadly drugs represents today’s engaged, pro-life movement, which does not hide facts from the women who deserve to know.

Philadelphia goalie skates with 9-year-old fan recovering from partial foot amputation

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Carter Hart gave one of his biggest fans a birthday wish to remember on Wednesday when they hit the ice together.

The boy, 9-year-old Brandon Hull, was marking his return to the ice after recovering from a partial foot amputation.

Hull, who also plays goalie, lost his right foot after falling from a lawnmower a few years back and undergoing several surgeries. His goal was to get back on the ice as soon as possible and the doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia did just that.

He is back on his youth hockey team and on Wednesday, as part of his birthday wish, Hull joined his favorite Flyers’ player at the team’s locker room before the pair spent some time skating laps, FOX 29 Philadelphia reported.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS MASCOT SURPRISES 7-YEAR-OLD SUPERFAN WHO REQUESTED CUSTOM GRITTY-THEMED PROSTHETIC 

“I feel like I want to be like him when I’m older and I want to play for the Flyers just like him,” Hull said of his role model. He’s the netminder for his youth team.

Hull had a smile on his face as he met the Flyers favorite in the locker room, where they discussed the hockey, goaltending and their respective equipment. Hart also signed a cast Hull wore on his arm due to a recent kickball injury.

“Have some fun and work hard,” Hart said to his resilient fan. “I think those are probably the two biggest things. Everyone says it, but at the NHL level, I know we’re professionals, but you gotta find time to have fun, too. The work never stops. You gotta always try to be at your best.”

‘Heroic’ Virginia rabbi missing after diving into ocean to save a student

A rabbi and day camp counselor in Norfolk, Va., went missing after jumping into the ocean to save a student who struggled to make it back to shore amid choppy waters, according to reports.

The Coast Guard searched for 35-year-old Rabbi Reuven Bauman, a 35-year-old teacher at Yeshiva Toras Chaim in Portsmouth, who was last seen around noon Tuesday when he dove in the water to rescue a 13-year-old camper from choppy waters with rip currents, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

NAOMI CAMPBELL PRAYS AT LUBAVITCHER REBBE’S GRAVE: I HAVE ‘LEARNED SO MUCH FROM HIS WISDOM’

“He acted heroically,” Coast Guard Lt. Steve Arguelles said about Bauman rescuing the child, who was reported safe at False Cape State Park. About 20 people attended a field trip at the state park. Swimming was prohibited in the area they visited.

The Coast Guard, assisted by Virginia Beach fire and police departments and the National Park Service, suspended the search Wednesday morning.

“It’s always a hard decision, and it’s not one we make lightly,” Arguelles told the Virginian-Pilot newspaper. In calling off the search, the Coast Guard considered the rough waters, the size of the area searched and the “likelihood of survivability.”

The Jewish community is still searching for Bauman’s body, according to WTKR.

“This is a terrible loss,” Joel Rubin, representing the Norfolk Jewish community, told the local CBS affiliate. “Rabbi Bauman was the most respected rabbis and teachers in this community. He was a father, a scholar and an outgoing, smart man.”

Bauman is reportedly a father of five, and he taught 7th and 8th-grade secular studies and 3rd-grade Judaic studies at the school.

House to vote Tuesday on holding Barr, Ross in contempt over census

Westlake Legal Group Census071019 House to vote Tuesday on holding Barr, Ross in contempt over census Ronn Blitzer fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox news fnc/politics fnc article 66b96421-88ff-5608-80fb-f1f43fc1a1df

Nearly a month after the House Oversight Committee voted to hold Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., announced that the full House will vote on the matter Tuesday.

It was June 12 when the committee voted that Barr and Ross should be held in contempt of Congress for not complying with subpoenas for records pertaining to the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

BOOKER INTRODUCES BILL TO RESTRICT USE OF CENSUS CITIZENSHIP QUESTION

“We will hold this Admin accountable for continued obstruction & oppose efforts to undermine the census,” Hoyer said in a Thursday tweet.

The Justice Department said President Trump was asserting executive privilege over the documents the panel had requested.

House Democrats have been trying to get records that would explain why the administration has been trying to include the citizenship question. Ross claimed that the Department of Justice pushed for it to aid enforcement of the Voting Rights Act, but the Supreme Court found this was just a pretext.

DEMOCRATS , GOP TRADE BARBS OVER CITIZENSHIP QUESTION ON 2020 CENSUS

The high court’s ruling said that a citizenship question could be permitted in theory, but there had to be a valid reason for it. Democrats have come out against the citizenship question, claiming that it would discourage people from responding to the census, affecting the amount of federal funding and the drawing of district maps in areas with large immigrant populations.

President Trump was scheduled to address the census issue on Thursday at a White House press conference. Fox News has learned that Trump intends to announce executive action to determine the number of citizens in the United States.

A summer collegiate baseball team sent out its adorable pint-sized coach for a pep talk during its game last week.

The Kalamazoo Growlers were up 2-0 in the third inning against the Kokomo Jackrabbits in a Northwoods League game when Coach Drake, 6, was forced to make a mound visit.

The boy came out to give the pitcher, catcher and infielders a bit of a pep talk about going back into the dugout. The boy patted his players on the butt before turning around and heading off the field.

Drake waved his cap to the crowd as he crossed the first base line.

The Growlers’ Twitter account posted the video on Wednesday and it quickly received national attention. The clip received more than 900 retweets and 3,500 likes.

Jeffrey Epstein hobnobbed with Hollywood, media elite despite dirty past as registered sex offender, reports say

Jeffrey Epstein has been a known sex offender for over a decade, but his perverted past didn’t limit his access to Hollywood and media elite, even at the height of the #MeToo movement, according to reports.

Epstein, a mysterious 66-year-old hedge fund manager, was arrested on Saturday after years of rumors regarding allegations that he sexually abused minors. In 2008, Epstein was required to register as a sex offender, but he’s since been hit a slew of new charges and allegedly operated a sex ring. But Epstein reportedly spent the last decade hanging out with moneyed elite, despite his sleazy past.

BILL MAHER JOKED ABOUT BILL CLINTON JOINING JEFFREY EPSTEIN ON ‘SEX ISLAND’ BACK IN 2015

The Hollywood Reporter published a report on Wednesday headlined, “Jeffrey Epstein moved freely in Hollywood circles even after 2008 conviction,” which details the registered sex offender’s ability to gallivant with prominent political figures and celebrities.

Westlake Legal Group 8a1eb516-ContentBroker_contentid-bfb91ad1d8c04edd8e93e82811867d22 Jeffrey Epstein hobnobbed with Hollywood, media elite despite dirty past as registered sex offender, reports say fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc cf3bd651-3995-50d2-8ccf-f82e48aa30d4 Brian Flood article

“Equally troubling are Epstein’s long-cultivated relationships within Hollywood and New York media circles, where he moved with ease well after his high-profile 2008 conviction for soliciting prostitution from girls as young as 14,” THR’s Tatiana Siegel and Marisa Guthrie wrote.

The report says that Epstein has been escorted to A-list events by “New York society doyenne” Peggy Siegal, “traveled behind the velvet rope with ease” and hung out with stars including Chris Tucker and Kevin Spacey.

The Hollywood Reporter said Epstein “frequently attended industry events” despite the #MeToo movement bringing down other once-powerful men.

“Amid a climate where figures including Harvey Weinstein and CBS’ Leslie Moonves had instantly become persona non grata for alleged misconduct, Epstein had been convicted and still enjoyed film-world access,” Siegel and Guthrie wrote.

“Epstein, like Weinstein was a known awful entity, and he was accepted by them, even post #MeToo because it didn’t make then look bad… yet.”

— Tim Young

Political comedian and host of “The No Things Considered” podcast, Tim Young, told Fox News that “it goes to show that certain people in Hollywood will only oust you when your presence becomes a PR issue” for them.

“Epstein, like Weinstein was a known awful entity, and he was accepted by them, even post #MeToo because it didn’t make them look bad… yet,” Young said. “It’s not about the crime, it’s about the direct image… and these people wanted that money and influence around, regardless of what they knew.”

BILL CLINTON ‘KNOWS NOTHING’ ABOUT FINANCIER JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ‘TERRIBLE CRIMES,’ FORMER PRESIDENT’S SPOKESMAN SAYS

Epstein even hosted a 2010 dinner party with a guest list including Katie Couric, Charlie Rose, Woody Allen, Chelsea Handler and ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, THR reported, citing the New York Post.

“Lasagna was served… he was wearing jeans and velvet Stubbs & Wootton slippers,” Siegel and Guthrie noted. “One top Hollywood veteran notes Epstein was very interested in show business and would reach out for information about the industry.”

The report also says that Epstein’s longtime gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell – who has been accused of helping Epstein commit illegal acts — “has been spotted at top-tier awards-season parties in New York and Los Angeles” mingling with everyone from now-disgraced movie mogul Weinstein to billionaire Jeff Bezos.

Meanwhile, New York Magazine published a breakdown of Epstein’s stunning rolodex, which includes high-powered friends from all walks of life.

“They’ve visited his private island, flown on his private jet, and had him as a guest in their homes. Most of the well-known figures linked to Epstein have not been accused of any wrongdoing, but a few have been accused of participating in his sex-trafficking ring,” New York magazine’s Adam Raymond and Matt Stieb wrote.

HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher even made a crude joke in 2015 that implied he knew about Epstein’s private island estate on the 72-acre Virgin Islands home dubbed by some “Orgy Island.”

An indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed Monday morning against Epstein, who pleaded not guilty during his initial appearance in a New York City federal court.

Prosecutors alleged that Epstein preyed on “dozens” of victims as young as 14.

Fox News’ Lukas Mikelionis and Gregg Re contributed to this report.

Burger King customers seen telling manager to ‘go back to Mexico’ in viral video

Burger King is speaking out in defense of a general manager in Florida after customers were filmed telling him to “go back to Mexico.”

The incident, which took place at a Burger King in Eustis, Fla., was overheard and filmed by Neyzha Nicole, another fast-food patron who posted the video to social media on Saturday.

In the footage, two elderly women are first overheard arguing with general manager Ricardo Castillo, reportedly after flagging him down to complain about how he was speaking Spanish to another employee.

“Go back to Mexico if you want to keep speaking Spanish. Go back to your Mexican country, your state, your country,” one of the women can he heard saying loudly in the restaurant dining room.

“Guess what, ma’am? I’m not Mexican,” Castillo responds. “I’m not Mexican, but you’re being very prejudiced and I want you out of my restaurant right now.”

“I’ll finish my meal, and then I’ll go,” she says.”

“You know what? I’ll do it for you, ma’am. I’ll call the cops,” Castillo says, before calling them both “ignorant” and “disrespectful.”

Castillo then reveals that the owner of this Burger King is actually a Mexican-American man, and waits for the women to get up and leave.

Nicole is then heard apologizing to Castillo for having to endure the incident, and offers to send him the footage she just filmed.

“He was handling it well and very professional, which I applaud him for very much,” said Oni Martinez, another customer in the restaurant, to Fox 35.

Burger King’s corporate offices became aware of the video as well, and issued a statement condemning the discrimination seen in the video.

“There is no place for discrimination in our restaurants,” Burger King said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “We expect employees and guests to treat each other with respect.  This incident took place at a franchised restaurant and the owner is looking into the matter.”

Guillermo Perales, the franchisee who owns the restaurant as well as nearly 300 others, also issued a response through his lawyer, Robert Zarco, NBC News reported.

“My client is very disappointed that customers would make racially and insensitive attacks on people who work there who have been trained to serve the customers,” Zarco said.
