The Other Book of Exodus

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/23/2020 4:58:51 AM

You’ve heard of the Book of Exodus, but have you heard of the other book “Exodus?” It’s a little bit of hubris of me to write a book review for an acclaimed, award-winning book first published nearly a decade before I was born, but the modern book Exodus is something that’s no less timeless than the original, and no less significant, filled with historical and biblical analogies of the Jewish people leaving exile and coming home. It’s a page turner that if you didn’t read, you’ll want to. God is not the author of “Exodus,” but He inspired a great man, .

I read that book and saw the Paul Newman movie next. Liked the book better. It gave me a good picture what the refugees had to go through to establish Israel as a modern nation. Israel has been in a constant state of war since.

I read Exodus as a teenager. Until then, I had no idea of founding of Israel. It's one of the best books I've ever read. I'm putting it on rereading list.

Mila 18, about the Warsaw Ghetto rising, is as good as Exodus.

I also read it as a teenager, and this article reminds me how much I liked it. Better than the movie, and the movie was pretty dang good. Should be required reading in all high schools (as if), a great antidote to the poisonous lies spread by Marxist/Democrats about Israel.

I read Exodus quite some time ago and again years later, as well as a few others by Uris. Great and enlightening story. I recommend it to anyone concerned about the state of Israel or planning a visit there.

It was one of Paul Newman's great movies, but there was no way to put that huge book on screen unless they would have done it as a miniseries for television. One of those books that was overflowing with enjoyment, too much to squeeze into two hours or so for a theater. Leon Uris was a great author. Now this movie would be a great choice for a remake, even if it was only on streaming as a limited run series. The viewing numbers would be through the roof.

Why isn’t Joe Biden
being tested for COVID-19?

Joe Biden has faced questions on his mental and physical acuity throughout his presidential bid. For example, he first said he is cognitively tested ‘all the time’ and then clarified to say he has not had a formal cognitive test But there is a larger issue lingering over the 77-year-old — Joe Biden has not been tested for COVID-19. Joe Biden receives Secret Service protection and intelligence briefings similar to that of the President. So why is he refusing to be tested regularly, as the President is, for a highly contagious virus that has killed 173,000 Americans?
A Potential Landslide Agenda 4 replies

Sunday afternoon, the Trump campaign put out a press release containing bullet points of the second-term agenda he’ll run on. It feels like it’s late in the game for him to do that, perhaps, but on the other hand this week is the opening of the Republican convention — so sure, the timing for the agenda makes sense. It’s been said repeatedly that Trump can’t just wait around for Joe Biden to implode — though the chances aren’t terrible that Biden will do just that, given his 100 percent propensity to vaporize as a presidential candidate in the past and his current suspect capacity with respect to what’s inside his cranium.

Despite the fact that he would be 82 years old at the start of his second term, Joe Biden on Sunday declared that he would “absolutely” serve a full eight years if elected president in November. If you remember, back in May, he answered concerns about his declining cognitive function by saying, “I will be a transition candidate.” But in his first prime-time interview since April, on ABC’s “World News Tonight,” Biden emphatically denied he meant he would serve only one term. “No. It doesn’t mean that.” Then he laughed off a question about his mental fitness. “Watch me.”

Those plastic bins at airport security checkpoints where you deposit your valuables for screening are doubling as bank teller windows for the Transportation Security Administration. Passengers left behind nearly $1 million at airport security checkpoints during fiscal year 2019, which ended last Oct. 1, according to a newly released report by the TSA. Officers collected $926,030.44 in U.S. currency and $18,899.09 in foreign currency that was left behind in the form of coins and cash from Oct. 1, 2018, through Sept. 30, 2019.

Tanisha Moner has had a gun pointed at her twice in her life. Once by two strangers who kidnapped, robbed, and sexually assaulted her when she was 17. And, again, by another robber as she worked a management shift at a restaurant. The traumatic experiences left her scarred, afraid of guns, shuddering at the sound of a firework and popped balloon. That changed the day she decided to face her fears and showed up for a gun-carry class at a local range. "Succumbing to your own fear is the only thing that can stop you from doing anything you want to do," Moner told the Washington Free Beacon.
The Week in Pictures: All Male Voting Edition 4 replies
Posted by MissMolly 8/23/2020 4:47:42 AM Post Reply
Hi everybody! Emily Litella here. Say, I’m confused. I kept hearing all week that it was the 100th anniversary of ending all-male voting. But then I keep hearing Democrats demand that we have an all-male election in November. But there are no male boxes because Trump has locked them up in cages at the border. Are male boxes just individuals with a cervix? I’m sure Joe Biden can explain the whole thing. Or at least “the thing,” that . . . you know, the thing we all know. C’mon, male! (Or is it, “C’mon man!” What if I don’t identify as. . . never mind.)

Another riot was declared in Portland last night. I think that makes four this week. Last night the focus was the north precinct and Antifa vandalized a police car. While they were there they also vandalized a van for the Boys & Girls Club which is not part of the police bureau. A crowd of 150-200 people gathered at Irving Park at 707 Northeast Fremont Street and began marching around 9:30p.m., blocking traffic. In the march, many individuals wore protective gear including helmets, eye protection, gas masks, and body armor. Some carried homemade wooden shields.
Biden’s Double-Trouble: A Shrinking
Lead and Being Forced to Go Public

Biden is in double-trouble: His lead falling, the race’s remaining variables are also daunting. CNN’s latest poll demonstrates the first, while a quick look at the shrinking calendar reveals the second. Increasingly, November appears to hinge on Biden’s public performance, which was the last thing Democrats wanted. CNN’s August 17 poll (taken 8/12-15, of 1,108 registered voters, MOE +/- 4 percent) showed Biden’s lead over Trump plummeting to just 50 percent to 46 percent, well within the poll’s margin of error. This is down 10 percentage points from CNN’s June poll, which had Biden leading 55 percent to 41 percent. Especially notable were Trump’s gain among Independent voters,

The adoption of universal mail-in balloting in the 2020 election could leave voters vulnerable to arm-twisting by "political guns for hire," former Federal Election Commission member Hans von Spakovsky told "Life, Liberty & Levin" in an interview airing Sunday. "The purpose of in-person voting, which is the way we have voted since the beginning of the country is because, most importantly, you are filling out your ballot," von Spakovsky told host Mark Levin. "You're doing it under the supervision of election officials and the observation of poll watchers so that you can ensure that no one is pressuring or coercing you in the polling place to vote a particular way,
Why won’t the US government admit

US intelligence agencies are sitting on a treasure trove of documents that detail Iran’s direct, material involvement in the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that cost the lives of four Americans. But until now, deep state bureaucrats have buried them under layers of classification, often without reason. From CIA officers, military contractors, and sources within US Special Forces, I have learned of the existence of at least 50 briefing documents that warned of Iranian intelligence operations in Benghazi. Some specifically predicted an Iranian attack on US diplomats and US facilities.

A group honoring the life and legacy of American civil rights icon Susan B. Anthony has refused to accept President Trump's posthumous pardon of her, arguing the effort would give unearned legitimacy to the 1873 court proceedings that found her guilty of breaking a law that prohibited women from voting. Trump this week announced he was pardoning Anthony for the conviction, a measure the president took on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which recognized the right of women to vote.

Ever wonder how we got to this point? How did a nation that defined itself with the superlatives, “land of the free and the home of the brave,” “America the Beautiful“ and “one nation under God” turn into a broken culture with no boundaries, no borders, no law, no order and no soul so fast? How did we lurch from being the United States into a divided people so quickly?
