Franklin Graham Says Canadian Truckers 'A Modern-Day Version' of Paul Revere

The Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Quebec are moving to lift their COVID restrictions as a convoy of protesting truckers continues to block major roads on the U.S.- Canada border.

Protests over COVID-19 vaccine mandates in Canada are also having an impact on the U.S. as demonstrators block traffic at a main entry point.

A 10-mile backup of trucks is causing 12-hour delays at the Ambassador Bridge, which connects Windsor, Ontario, to Detroit. It's the busiest international land border in North America with $323 million in goods crossing the bridge daily.

Larry Tomczak: Why I Won't Watch Communist Chinese Olympics

Here's why I will not participate in a charade that props up a sanitized, positive image of communist China on the world stage of the Olympics, even though I love the Chinese people and athletes.

The Legacy of Communism
My father came from Poland not far from where Hitler had camps exterminating Jews. He later told me of Stalin, murdering tens of millions of his own Russian people. I then learned that during my childhood, Mao Zedong enslaved and exterminated millions of Chinese for his Cultural Revolution.

When I learned that the Chinese Communist Party secured the rights for the 2022 Winter Olympics, I united with freedom-loving people worldwide in opposition. These games remind us of Hitler's propaganda machine during the 1936 Berlin Olympics to camouflage the coming Nazi menace that would catapult nations into war.

Ohio Pastors Rebuke Governor During Super Bowl Week for Expansion of Sports Gambling

As Ohioans are counting on the Cincinnati Bengals to win Super Bowl LVI, the Ohio governor and Legislature are counting on Ohioans to lose. Recently, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill into law legalizing sports betting in order to replenish state coffers with additional tax revenue. Ohio clergy at odds with DeWine believe state-sanctioned sports betting in the long run will be a bad bet for Ohio and will set up a banana republic at the expense of gambling addicts.

Clergy representing ninety-one congregations throughout the Buckeye Bible Belt wrote an open letter critical of DeWine after he signed House Bill 29 into law legalizing sports gambling. The leading clergymen said the decision was "irresponsible and showed a glaring lack of leadership."

House Bill 29 will allow predatory sports betting on collegiate and professional sports. It will also legalize sports betting at brick-and-mortar casinos, stadiums, bars and restaurants, and allow betting via internet, mobile devices and kiosks. The Ohio Casino Control Commission will have regulatory oversight.
