Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Four men in Florida were arrested Monday for allegedly stealing more than $500,000 worth of tequila.

Vidal Estrada, Lemuel Escobar, Humberto Ramirez and Alberto Obaya were charged for resisting an officer without violence, grand theft and burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, NBC News reported. Obaya, 46, was also arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance. The men are supposed to have a court hearing Tuesday.

Officials began searching for a semi-trailer filled with tequila cases after a truck driver at a Tampa, Florida, truck stop noticed his trailer was missing Sunday night, according to The Associated Press. The truck driver was getting dinner at the time.

The 966 cases of tequila in the trailer were worth $507,105, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office reported according to NBC.

Deputies saw four men allegedly transferring cases of Patron tequila from the trailer to another truck at a nearby intersection, the AP reported.

The men reportedly moved over 20 cases of tequila from the trailer to the box truck, according to NBC.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    • Here Are The Obama-Era Officials Allegedly Behind The Alabama False Flag Campaign

      By Chris White - Two Obama-era officials were instrumental in the false flag operation in Alabama ahead of the special election in 2017  One of the Obama-era officials behind the misinformation campaign in Alabama finally opens up about his group’s role in the caper  Two  of the people involved in the social media misinformation campaign in Alabama are denying their roles in the operation, reports show A trove of reports show that two Obama-era officials are partially responsible for a misinformation campaign designed to derail Republican Roy Moore’s senatorial campaign in Alabama. Former President Barack Obama campaign organizer, Mickey Dickerson, was instrumental in a disinformation campaign targeting Moore, reports show. He was not alone. Evan Coren, who has worked for the National Archives unit since Obama’s first term, also targeted the Republican’s campaign. Coren, for his part, is a progressive activist who handles classified documents for the Department of Energy. He has not responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the nature of the campaign, which was designed to fool conservatives into believing Moore intended to reimpose prohibition. Coren and other operatives created a “Dry Alabama” Facebook page with a blunt message attached: Alcohol is evil and should be prohibited, The New York Times reported Monday, citing sources. The page included images of car wrecks and ruined families, the report notes. Its contents were targeted at business conservatives who are inclined to oppose prohibition. Two wealthy Virginia donors who wanted to defeat Moore funded the project, according to a person who worked on the project and who spoke on condition of anonymity. The Dry Alabama project was one of two $100,000 campaigns designed to help Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, who barely won the 2017 special election. Jones has previously stated that his campaign was unaware of the project and is also calling for an investigation into who is behind the antics. Political analysts believe allegations that Moore sexually assaulted underage women three decades earlier likely played a larger part in his loss. Coren’s false flag operation happened alongside a similar campaign by Dickerson, a former Obama official known for fixing the government’s notoriously glitchy Obamacare website. Operatives with New Knowledge, a group affiliated with Dickerson, created thousands of Twitter accounts posing as Russian bots to boost the election-year chances of Jones – the accounts began following Moore’s Twitter account in October 2017. The project created a slew of Facebook accounts as well that were designed to troll conservatives into opposing Moore. But the misinformation project attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore’s candidacy. The Montgomery Advertiser, for one, was the first to cover the story using the Russian-bot angle. National media outlets quickly followed suit. “Roy Moore flooded with fake Russian Twitter followers,” read the headline on a New York Post story, which cited the Advertiser. WaPo focused its reporting on that fact that Moore blamed Democrats for the fake accounts. Other major national outlets picked up on the story shortly thereafter, with many pundits mocking Moore for blaming Democratic operatives. The cost of the effort, which was funded by liberal billionaire Reid Hoffman, totaled $100,000 — the identical amount Facebook says the Russian Internet Research Agency spent trolling people on social media leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Dickerson, who has not responded to TheDCNF’s repeated requests for comment about the campaign, finally responded to reporters on Monday. “I received the report in early 2018, which is when I first learned about the false flag and write-in tactics,” Dickerson said in a press statement, referring to a 12-page report from New Knowledge detailing crucial elements of the project. Jonathon Morgan, head of New Knowledge, denies knowledge of most of the activities described in the Project Birmingham document. He also denies Dickerson’s claim that New Knowledge authored the report.

    • The Florida Sheriff, the Sheriff’s Son, and the ‘Coward of Broward’

      By American Media Institute - By Paul Sperry, RealClearInvestigations As Runcie pioneered the most lenient discipline policies in the nation, the administration pumped millions of
      dollars in education grants into his district. More than 50 other large school districts adopted similar programs as
      the administration opened race-bias investigations and threatened funding cuts for those who failed to comply
      with the lower disciplinary standards. Last month, the Trump administration revoked the Obama policy, formalized in a January 2014 guidance letter
      to all public school districts, arguing it has led to increased violence in schools. The Florida state safety commission’s draft report also revealed that the Broward district has been systematically
      underreporting crimes committed on campus since revising its discipline policies, helping it appear that the
      PROMISE program and its required “restorative justice” counseling sessions were working to reduce the
      number of students who reoffend and control overall crime on campus. Officials at Stoneman Douglas, for example, failed to report dozens of instances of violence, bullying, theft,
      robbery and trespassing in the 2016-2017 school year, making the school look much safer than it was prior to
      the shooting. New Renaissance Middle School in Miramar, Fla., reported no cases of bullying in 2015-2016, even though
      coed Jayla Cofer successfully sued Broward schools in 2016 after she was sent to the emergency room by a gang
      of violent girls, none of whom was arrested. Her attackers were d diverted to the PROMISE program, where they
      received counseling. Arreaza charged in a complaint filed Dec. 21 in Broward County court that school officials have pressured
      teachers and staff not to report crimes committed by students like Cruz. In an interview with RealClearInvestigations, he said they also routinely pressured Peterson and other school
      resource officers to “downgrade” serious crimes, including violent felonies. Just weeks before the Stoneman Douglas massacre, for example, a sophomore band member at the high school
      was violently attacked by another student, Arreaza said. The assailant broke his nose, but he wasn’t arrested for the assault. Instead, school officials assigned him to a diversionary program where he received counseling.
      “The crime was actually an aggravated assault, which is a felony, but it was reduced to a misdemeanor,”
      said Arreaza, who represents the victim. When the boy’s parents complained, “Deputy Peterson told the parents
      he isn’t allowed to arrest anyone.” Other sources confirmed that arrests are discouraged across the board by the administration.
      One longtime deputy assigned to Broward schools, who insisted on anonymity, said that a top official in the
      superintendent’s office “asked us not to arrest students for felonies in addition to misdemeanors,” even though
      the 2013 agreement explicitly emphasized that police had final discretion and that felonies would not qualify
      under the no-arrest plan. The sheriff even mirrored the no-arrest policy at the county jail. In a related program, Israel agreed to back off arrests of students who commit various crimes outside of schools,
      offering them civil citations and the same “restorative justice” counseling in lieu of incarceration, even for repeat
      offenders. Restorative justice is a controversial alternative punishment in which delinquents gather in “healing
      circles” with counselors – and sometimes even the victims of their crime – and discuss their feelings and the
      “root causes” of their anger and actions. Within two years of adopting the discipline reforms, Broward’s juvenile recidivism rate surged higher than the
      Florida state average. The negative trends continued through 2017, the most recent juvenile crime data show.
      Cruz wasn’t the only dangerous threat who avoided referral to the juvenile justice system. The district also previously diverted other boys, who brought guns to school and threatened to go on shooting
      rampages, from the criminal justice system and into alternative programs. In October 2016, for instance, a
      would-be teen shooter at Coral Springs High School was sent to counseling and was not charged with a crime.
      The safety commission found that Broward public schools average two threat assessments per day. In just the
      first half of 2018, the district had completed approximately 390 behavioral threat assessments. Cruz, 19, faces the death penalty if convicted of 17 counts of murder in the Valentine’s Day massacre.

    • Woman Allegedly Tries To Poison Husband With Antifreeze, Gets Caught By 4-Year-Old Son

      By Grace Carr - A New York woman allegedly attempted to poison her estranged husband by spiking his drinks with antifreeze after their son told a third party about the attempt. Long Island resident Renee Burke was charged Thursday with attempted murder, assault, burglary and endangering the welfare of a child, ABC6 reported Saturday. A grand jury indicted Burke, 40, for her alleged crimes, according to ABC. Burke attempted to poison her husband, Matthew Burke, by putting antifreeze in his beverages on a number of occasions, according to prosecutors. Antifreeze is an ethylene glycol liquid-based substance that can be added to water to lower freezing temperature. It is often used to regulate engine temperatures in vehicles. Ingesting the substance can cause life-threatening complications, according to Healthline, a website that covers a full spectrum of medicine and offers expert medical advice. Renee Burke first attempted to poison her husband on Sept. 6, 2018, according to prosecutors, ABC reported. After Matthew Burke noticed his wine contained a chemical taste, their 4-year-old son disclosed to his babysitter that his mom “had put something in daddy’s drink,” prosecutors allege, according to ABC. The Burkes have a 4-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter. Matthew Burke has full custody of the children, according to ABC. Renee Burke has temporary visitation rights. Following the first alleged poisoning attempt, doctors examined Matthew Burke and the children for injury and found none, ABC reported. Matthew Burke noticed the same chemical taste in a soda on another occasion, and installed a video camera in his house in order to discover if Renee Burke was in fact seeking to tamper with his beverages. At a later date, footage shows Renee Burke pouring pink liquid from two baby bottles into Matthew Burke’s wine, according to ABC. Renee Burke tried to poison her husband numerous times between Sept. 1, and Sept. 12, 2018, prosecutors allege. Renee Burke claims the video footage shows her pouring fruit juice into her husband’s wine, ABC reported. “This is an extremely troubling case,” Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini said, according to ABC. “It’s not only disturbing that the defendant attempted to murder her estranged husband, but that she did so in the presence of children.” Investigators found antifreeze at Renee Burke’s residence. Included in searches googled on her phone, according to prosecutors, was the phrase, “What liquids for cars can kill a human?” Renee Burke has pleaded not guilty. She is being held on $400,000 bond, according to ABC. She faces up to 25 years in prison if she is found guilty in court.
