Prayercast | North Korea

    • VIDEO

    • Pray for Almighty God to deliver a nation long-enslaved by a brutal regime.

    • Pray for the Church to persevere and multiply amid horrific persecution.

    • Pray for Truth to reign and liberate the nation from the regime’s indoctrination and lies.

    • Known as the "Hermit Kingdom," North Korea has chosen to isolate its people from the outside world. The government of this East Asian country on the northern half of the Korean Peninsula rigidly controls the information coming into and going out of the country

    • Its isolation has diminished somewhat, though, as North Korea’s nuclear aspirations, its large standing army, and severe food shortages have drawn the interest and concern of its neighbors and the world.

    • The extreme secrecy of the North Korean government makes it difficult to know exactly how North Koreans live. Since the country’s formation in 1948, the dictatorships of Kim Il-sung and his son, Kim Jong-il, and their Juche or self-reliance philosophy have formed the North Korea we see today.

    • The government dictates the lifestyle of the people through generic provisions and by limiting personal differences.

    • Government: Communist Dictatorship

    • Population: 22,665,345

    • Major People Groups: 99% Korean, 1% Chinese

    • Religion: 64% Non, 16% Trad. Ethnic, 13% Chondogyo

    • Much of North Korea is rural and underdeveloped. Natural disasters and military spending have strapped the economy. It is estimated that over the past fifteen years, two million North Koreans have died due to food shortages.

    • GDP Per Capita: $8,800

    • North Korea has had to rely on foreign aid for food to feed its people.

    • The North Korean government has been accused of torture, slavery, public executions, forced abortions, infanticides, as well as detaining possibly 200,000 political prisoners.

    • Once called the "Jerusalem of the East," Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, no longer can claim that title as many of its Christians fled to South Korea during the Korean War.   Instead, the doctrine of Juche has become a religion with the Kims as its deities.

    • Information about the Christian church in North Korea today is limited, but it is known to survive in the face of intense persecution.  It has become an underground church where meetings and worship must be held in secret, and members know that if they are caught they will be thrown in prison or sent to a labor camp. Due to intense government control of the media, most North Koreans have never heard the name of Jesus.

Former Planned Parenthood official suggests babies born alive after abortions left to die: Video

    • “In Arizona, if the fetus comes out with any signs of life, we’re supposed to transport it. To the hospital,” Ms. Taylor says.

      Pro-life activists posing as fetal tissue buyers ask Ms. Taylor if there is “any standard procedure for verifying signs of life.”

      “Well, the thing is, I mean the key is, you need to pay attention to who’s in the room, right?” Ms. Taylor says.

    • “The only difference between Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business, and that of the notorious Dr. Kermit Gosnell, is that Gosnell was not so careful as to ‘pay attention to who’s in the room,’”
    • “The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement. “We will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”
    • “It’s not a matter of how I feel about it coming out intact, but I gotta worry about my staff and people’s feelings about it coming out looking like a baby,” Ms. Taylor says.
    • “Elected officials must stop forcing taxpayers to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s criminal abortion business, and the Department of Justice must immediately open a full investigation and prosecute Planned Parenthood to the fullest extent of the law,”

California Charges Pro-Life Journalists with Felony Counts for Planned Parenthood Videos — Selective Prosecution | National Review

    • Its decision to go after two journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood reeks of selective prosecution.
    • It’s becoming increasingly clear that in the state of California, the right to abort a child is the chief liberty in the land, and all other liberties must bow before it.
    • California charged Daleiden and Merrit with a whopping 15 felony counts based on their undercover videos — released through the Center for Medical Progress — showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing, among other things, harvesting and possibly even selling the organs of aborted babies.
    • California’s case not only fails on the merits, it reeks of selective prosecution. There is no shortage of examples of concealed-camera videos in California exposing scandalous behavior (the Federalist’s Sean Davis has been tweeting them since the indictment), often in the arena of animal rights.
    • In 2014, a group called Mercy for Animals released an undercover video that “allegedly show[ed] widespread animal abuse and cruelty at one of California’s largest duck farms.” Authorities reportedly responded to the video — by investigating the farm.
    • In 2015, the same group released yet another undercover video, this time exposing “apparent mistreatment of chickens at a Foster Farms poultry slaughterhouse in Fresno and at three poultry farms in Fresno County.” Once again, authorities responded — once again by investigating the farm.
    • But the lives and deaths of chickens and ducks rate higher than the lives and deaths of human babies in the womb, so the Center for Medical Progress triggered an entirely different law-enforcement reaction. Pro-life journalists must be prosecuted.
    • Yet even if you divorce the case from its damning context, California’s case is hardly airtight. In fact, there’s a California case explicitly holding that state criminal law does not apply to undercover journalist recordings nearly identical to Daleiden’s. In Wilkins v. National Broadcasting Company, the victims of an undercover Dateline NBC sting sued NBC, alleging (among other things) that it violated California Penal Code Section 632 (the exact provision at issue in Daleiden’s case) when it taped a lunch meeting at a restaurant with a company salesperson. The court ruled for NBC, holding that the lunch meeting wasn’t a “confidential communication”:
    • Big Abortion holds the Democratic party in a vise grip, and it now may use that power to send a man to prison for embarrassing the nation’s largest abortion provider. Two young journalists may pay a steep price for doing work that the Left admires — at least when reporters are protecting ducks and chickens. But babies in the womb? They only have the right to die.

Phil Kerpen: Obama,Tech-Socialists Stole Internet from the People, We Must Take It Back

    • For over a decade, professional liberal organizers and agitators – backed by a tidal wave of big liberal foundations and Silicon Valley corporate money – have told a bizarre scare story that without heavy-handed government regulation, Internet service providers (ISPs) will start blocking what websites you can go to and impede free speech on the Internet.  No such thing happened in the approximately two decades that ISPs were unregulated ‘information services’ under the 1996 Telecom Act. Indeed the opposite occurred as robust competition between phone and cable companies – and later wireless companies – drove speeds dramatically higher and consumers benefited from an Internet that innovated beyond our wildest dreams.
    • Kerpen elaborated on the liberal end goals for Net Neutrality:
    • “In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”
    • Kerpen explained that everything changed when Trump was elected. “But you see that all changed when Donald Trump was elected President and nominated Ajit Pai as chairman of the FCC,” he noted. “They are already eliminating onerous regulations at the FCC, and now they can get rid of Net Neutrality.”
    • The American Commitment president explained that the liberal media has been lying to Americans about the benefits of Net Neutrality. “See the problem is that Ars Technica, The Verge, Wired, all these liberal tech websites 100% lied to you on Net Neutrality. The internet prospered under light regulation when there was no Net Neutrality.”
    • He continued, “The liberal media will also lie and smear Chairman Pai and President Trump to force Congress’s hand and keep Net Neutrality. Republicans need to do what they were elected to do: stand and fight. And win.”
