Prayers for Those Injured and the Families of Those Who Lost Loved Ones at the Synagogue In Pittsburgh

Once again tragedy has struck our country, this time in the form of a mass shooting at a Synagogue in Pittsburgh on the Jewish Sabbath. Satan and his followers are rejoicing today as those of us who believe in the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob mourn the senseless loss of lives.

We pray for the families and friends of the 11 victims who were murdered as well as for the healing and speedy recovery of those who were injured. We also lift up those who were there and were not injured physically but mentally and for the first responders who were on the scene.

I will be talking in depth about this situation on the weekly Ed Boston Podcast on Monday.

Rupert from Survivor Fame and Rupert’s Kids

Rupert competed on Survivor a total of four times. He was the first contestant to compete in back to back seasons, first appearing on Pearl Islands and then on All-Stars. Out of his four seasons, he placed highest on All-Stars, earning himself the fourth place spot. He was also awarded one million dollars on Survivor: America’s Tribal Council after being voted the fan favorite.

Rupert says this about Rupert’s Kids :

I have shown for 25 years how you take a person who has only been trained to hold their hand out and teach them… empower them.. show them that they have that energy and ability to take care of themselves. There is no one out there who can’t go to work.

Taking young men and women, that have never been shown how to make a legal living and raising them… by the time they are 20 or 30 years old, do you really think they’re ever going to get it? No… they’re going, for the rest of their life’s, to be holding their hand out… we’re creating a giant problem.

Former US Navy SEAL Ephraim Mattos

Former US Navy SEAL Ephraim Mattos teamed up with New York Times bestselling author Scott McEwen (American Sniper) to write the upcoming book, City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul — available everywhere on October 23 from Center Street / Hachette Book Group. City of Death tells the unforgettable story of an American warrior turned humanitarian forced to fight his way into and out of a Hell on Earth created by ISIS.

City of Death is the true story of Ephraim Mattos and what he witnessed while volunteering as a frontline combat medic during the historic battle to retake Mosul from ISIS – the deadliest urban combat the world has seen since WWII.

After leaving the US Navy SEAL teams in 2017, Mattos, age 24, flew to Iraq to join a small group of volunteer humanitarians known as the Free Burma Rangers, who were working on the frontlines of the war on ISIS.

Until being shot by ISIS on a suicidal rescue mission, Mattos witnessed unexplainable acts of courage and sacrifice by the Free Burma Rangers, who, while under heavy machine gun and mortar fire, assaulted across ISIS minefields, used themselves as human shields, and sprinted down ISIS-infested streets – all to retrieve wounded civilians.

The moment Mattos was shot was actually captured on video. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/3P0pZvn22xk

In City of Death, Mattos recounts in vivid detail what he saw and felt while he and the other Free Burma Rangers evacuated the wounded, conducted rescue missions, and at times fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Iraqi Army against ISIS. Filled with raw and emotional descriptions of what it’s like to come face-to-face with death, this is the harrowing and uplifting true story of a small group of men who risked everything to save the lives of the Iraqi people and who followed the credence, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Jeff Allen, Christian Comedian

Jeff Allen combines clean, hilarious humor with inspiration like no other comedian working today. He performs sidesplitting standup and, when requested, riveting testimony. As such, he is a favorite at outreach events where church members can freely invite their unchurched friends, knowing that they’ll be sharing world‐class entertainment. For three decades, Jeff Allen has been performing at churches, on television and radio, for fundraisers and at corporate functions all across the country.

Jeff Allen is the best at what he does – making people laugh as hard as humanly possible.

Jeff’s comedy drives home the humor in everyday family life and the joy derived from a healthy marriage.

Podcast Guest Announcement – Judge Jeanine Pirro

On social media yesterday, we teased this announcement and even gave a big hint later on when we posted a video of an interview done by Judge Jeanine Pirro with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

That’s right!!!! Next week Pastor Ed Boston will have the privilege of interviewing Judge Jeanine Pirro – author of the new book “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy”.

While we will be focusing on the book, most will remember the encounter that Judge Jeanine had with the co-host of The View, Whoopi Goldberg.

Check out this video of her appearance on The View and then her new Opening Statement:

Judge Jeanine’s Bio from her personal website.

Judge Jeanine Pirro is the highly respected District Attorney and County Judge, politician, legal commentator, author, champion of victim’s rights and mother of two. She won a Daytime Emmy for her daily syndicated court show “Judge Pirro.” Currently, Pirro hosts Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine“.  As a result of her high profile prosecutions and her political career, Pirro is a familiar face to New Yorkers.

Pirro’s notable legal career spans over 30 years.  In 1975, Pirro became an Assistant District Attorney for Westchester County, New York and was the first female to prosecute a murder case there. Prosecuting murder, rape, domestic violence, and other violent felonies, she had a 100% conviction rate and received considerable recognition for her work as a leading advocate for victims of domestic violence, establishing one of the first domestic violence units in the nation.

In 1990, Pirro made history as the first female elected judge to the Westchester County Court bench. 

In 1993, she again made history as the first female elected District Attorney in West Chester County – a county of approximately 1 million people. She was re-elected in 1997 and again in 2001, when she was made the first female president of the New York State District Attorney Association. In 2006, the Republican Party chose her as its candidate for New York State Attorney General.

As District Attorney, Pirro crusaded on behalf of the vulnerable creating new specialized units to investigate and prosecute crimes involving hate and bias, elder abuse, domestic abuse, environmental crime, youth and gang violence, sex crimes, animal abuse, child abuse, and pedophiles on the Internet. Her Internet sting operation netted a 100% conviction rate and served as a model for other local, state and federal initiatives.

Pirro was appointed by three governors to investigate and draft legislation for crime victims. Most notably, the New York State Commission on Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board, which she chaired. As a sought-after speaker, Pirro has lectured throughout the country including at the FBI Academy at Quantico, National District Attorneys Association and the US Army War College, as well as various law schools and colleges nationwide. Pirro has been profiled in several magazines including the New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, More Magazine, New York Magazine and was even named as one of the world’s 50 Most Beautiful People by People Magazine.

Pirro is a nationally recognized legal expert appearing on television programs such as “The Today Show “ on NBC, “Good Morning America” on ABC, “The Early Show” on CBS, “60 Minutes,” “48 Hours,” “Nightline,” “Larry King Live,” “The View,” “The O’Reilly Factor,” and other national television shows.

Throughout her tenure with Fox News Channel, Pirro has covered breaking news and has reported live on the Aurora theater massacre shooting, the Casey Anthony trial in Orlando Florida, the Drew Peterson trial in Chicago, Illinois, the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting and the George Zimmerman trial in Orlando, Florida.  Her opening statement – a commentary on political as well as pressing contemporary issues garner millions of ‘hits’. Her strong reasoned opinions, no-nonsense analysis, fearlessness and sense of humor make her a sought after and entertaining speaker.

Pirro is the author of three books, “To Punish and Protect: One DA’s Fight Against a System That Coddles Criminals,” “Sly Fox” and “Clever Fox.” Born in the small upstate New York farming town of Elmira, Pirro graduated from Notre Dame High School in three years, earned a B.A. Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Buffalo, and received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Albany Law School where she was an editor of the law review.
