New Peace in the Middle East

We are so pleased with the historic signing of the Peace Agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates today at the White House. President Donald Trump, Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed one of the most important Peace Agreements in the history of the Middle East. The Aaron Accords will be just one step in a long line of peace agreements between Israel and other nations who have historically been their enemy.

Breaking News: Comedy Legend Tim Conway Passes Away

 

For those of us who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, Tim Conway is a comedy legend. Amy and I continue to watch and love old episodes of “The Carol Burnett Show”, and especially love the ones that Tim appeared in.

It was so funny to see Tim make his fellow actors laugh when they should have been in character during a skit. Harvey Korman could hardly keep a straight face in nearly every scene they were involved in on the iconic Carol Burnett show.

While the character Mr. Tudball was among our favorite characters, it was the “Oldest Man” that topped them all. Watch this short video clip of Tim Conway as the Oldest Man.

Amy and I are saddened by the death of one of our all-time favorites, and our prayers go out to his family, friends, and fans. May Tim Conway’s memory live forever, and what a blessing it is to still be able to watch him performing his craft.

Read the announcement of Tim Conway’s passing below this picture of Tim and Harvey.

Comedy legend Tim Conway, star of ‘The Carol Burnett Show,’ dead at 85

Tim Conway, the Golden Globe Award-winning actor who embodied several comical characters on “The Carol Burnett Show” including the Oldest Man and Mr. Tudball has died at age 85.

Conway died Tuesday morning after a long illness in Los Angeles, according to his rep Howard Bragman. His daughter, Kelly, told Fox News on Tuesday her father is “at peace now.”

“The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced, but will be remembered forever,” Kelly told us. “He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven.

“We knew he would have to leave us someday, but that day came too soon. When he used to hear the song ‘Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground’ he would say, ‘I want that played at my funeral.'”

Conway’s longtime friend and fellow star Carol Burnett told Fox News, “I’m heartbroken. He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He’ll be in my heart forever.

Huge News About Friend of the Podcast Michael Behenna

It’s been a long, long time coming but today, President Trump gave an Executive Grant of Clemency for friend of the podcast, Michael Behanna. I, along with numerous other members of the then called “Cyber Crew” worked hard to defend Michael from nearly the very beginning of this horrible ordeal to a true Military Hero.

A trip to DC in support of Micheal, walking the halls of the Congressional Office Building to speak with Congressmen and their staffs about the grave injustices that were placed on our friend, having Michael’s parents on the podcast more than once to keep us updated (once Michael himself got on the line to thank us for our support), and regular prayers are some of the things we’ve done on behalf of this amazing former Military Officer.  We once had former Congressman and retired LTC Allen West on the podcast just to talk about Michael.

This grant of clemency serves as a complete pardon for Michael. While he can never get back the years of pain and suffering he has endured because of this disgrace of a miscarriage of justice, I am so pleased that he can now have this part of his life behind him.

May God’s blessing always be with Michael, Vicki, Scott along with the rest of the family, friends, and fellow soldiers that were so affected by this ordeal.

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Clemency for Michael Behenna

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for former Army First Lieutenant Michael Behenna of Oklahoma.

In 2009, a military court sentenced Mr. Behenna to 25 years in prison for unpremeditated murder in a combat zone. After judgment, however, the U.S. Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Mr. Behenna’s claim of self-defense. Additionally, the Army Clemency and Parole Board reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible in 2014—just 5 years into his sentence. Upon his release, dozens of Patriot Guard motorcycle riders met Mr. Behenna to escort him back to his home in Oklahoma.

Mr. Behenna’s case has attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public. Thirty-seven generals and admirals, along with a former Inspector General of the Department of Defense, signed a brief in support of Mr. Behenna’s self-defense claim. Numerous members of the Oklahoma congressional delegation, Oklahoma’s then-Governor Mary Fallin, and current Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter have also expressed support for Mr. Behenna. Further, while serving his sentence, Mr. Behenna was a model prisoner. In light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency.

Breaking News – Notre Dame Cathedral Burns

A massive fire broke out at the famed Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday afternoon, officials said.

Black smoke could be seen from a distance billowing out from the top of the medieval cathedral, while flames leaped out from two of its bell towers. The sight stopped pedestrians in their tracks along the Seine River, which passes under the cathedral.

The cathedral’s main spire has fallen, and there are recovery efforts being made to save artifacts that are irreplaceable.

This is a breaking news story and more will be posted later.
