An ISIS-inspired suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, law enforcement sources said.
The man — a 27-year-old who lived in Brooklyn and is possibly of Bangladeshi origin — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub, sources said.
Commentary & Analysis

Today another Jihadi tried to kill innocent Americans. It’s all over the media how this Jihadi tried to blow up people in NYC. Merry Christmas Everyone. The Jihad is not going to go away and the so-called war-on-terror is anything but. Our leaders aren’t really interested in stopping the Jihadi’s. We’ll have another candle-light vigil but nothing will happen. We’ll hear the same-old worn out rhetoric but no clear-cut plan to stop the Jihad. This plan, that I outlined below will work. We have to ask our selves why won’t our leaders do this?
Here’s how to stop the Jihad.
There is no way to stop someone from becoming radicalized and carrying out heinous acts but there is a way to respond to it and if we have the gumption to carry it out I believe we could greatly limit the Jihadi’s. Here’s the simple plan.
In Israel when a suicide bomber attacks the IDF finds the family and bulldozes their house. End of story. We need to do the same here. If this guy has a family they are immediately deported back to the country of their origin. Their house is seized and then sold. The money is distributed to the victims of the Jihadi.
The Jihadi if captured alive is tried as a war criminal in a military court.
We then sanction the Jihadi’s country of origin making it very clear that we not tolerate terror in our country. There could be several levels to the sanctions, each becoming more severe and if more terror attacks occurred then the sanctions would increase. If we hit countries in their pocketbook they will respond. This would require a coalition of countries that are experiencing Jihad and are willing to stand up against it.
The Mosque where the Jihad attended services would be immediately shut down and dismantled. No second chances, no leniency. The Imam would be deported back to his country of origin. The building would be demolished and the property sold. The proceeds would go to the families of victims.
All monies and bank accounts associated with both the Jihadi, the Mosque and families of the Jihadi would be seized and distributed to the victims.
Family members would be held for questioning and if found complacent in any way would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law as war criminals. If found innocent they would then be deported back to their country of origin.
This is what it’s going to take to halt the Jihad. The countries in the free world must realize the threat and ban together. It’s time for the so-called religion of peace to be held accountable. The question is this will we have the fortitude to carry out the plan or will we do nothing and have yet another candle-light vigil.
The plan will work and it will send a very clear signal to those who threaten our way of life and our democracy.

Has the Church Lost its Salt?
L. A. Marzulli
Like it or not, this is where we are a culture, as a people, as a nation. There are churches on every street corner in every town in America. Yet, in every town there is a coven of witches and their numbers are growing.
The fascination with all things occult is influencing our young people. Our youth is being drawn to the dark side through music, film and TV shows as well as Ouija boards being sold in major stores at Christmas.
They are being initiated into the world of Satanism. I’ve shown this picture before and it’s old news but it is a barometer of what has become an in-your-face assault on Christian values and the church.
So why is this happening? Jesus tells us that in the later days the “church” will have a form of religion but deny its power. Welcome to the American Church.
So how do we fix this? Glad you asked.
Worship has become entertainment in many churches and many worship leaders have no idea of how to bring a congregation into the “throne-room.” Then there is usually complete insensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Here’s an example. The congregation has just finished singing Revelation song. They are standing in silence with an attitude of worship when a college student comes to the mic, greets the people and starts reading the morning announcements. I’ve seen this happen so many times I can’t count. It is at this point, when the people have been ushered into the presence of the Lord that He can move…if we let Him. There can be a word of knowledge, a tongue with an interpretation, a prophecy, a revelation, someone who is sick could be healed. It can happen but it needs to be done decently and in order and we have to get out of the way to allow it to happen in the first place.
So let’s say there is a move of the Holy Spirit and the “gifts” are utilized. Then, someone other than the pastor who has a gift of intercession should lead the people in prayer. Most churches pray for less than a minute. The Elders and deacons should be present on stage for support and also, if led, to pray too. The “leader” should target the fortune-teller in town, the abortion clinic, the crack house, the sick in the congregation should come forward and be anointed with oil and prayed for. This would involve the people in doing something other than sitting. It engages them in our most powerful weapon, prayer!
Afterwards comes a teaching by the pastor, from God’s word. An entire chapter, verse by verse is looked at. The pastor should also address world events in regard to prophecy. When the shootings happened in Los Vegas was a perfect time not only to pray but address what happened. This way not only is God’s word taught but the people are informed.
Lastly there should be a time when people can be prayed for individually. This should happen right after the service where the elders and deacons both men and women can pray for specific needs.
In closing the Bun. The youth are tired of games, events, church picnics, and potlucks. They are hungry for God, although most of them don’t know that. It’s easy for them to be seduced by the dark side and this is why many have drifted away. However, if they saw the Spirit of the Living God at work, it would, I believe change their lives.
It’s a sad day on Facebook. It was brought to my attention that a certain Jan Hodges wrote some nasty stuff about me on Facebook regarding our taking some time off, our much needed vacation.
Peggy and I are on vacation. We were comped 10 days at a really nice Hotel. That means it’s for free. All we had to do is come up with the money to ski. I guess in Hodges mind we’re not allowed to have a vacation. Mean spirited anyone?
I’m amazed at how low some people will go. Who is the accuser of the brethren?
Even here, while on “vacation” I did a show last night with Daniel Ott.
Just to clear something up. The donations go to the ministry not to our vacation! L.A.
This just came in. Two different perspectives. One accusation the other uplifting. Which would you like spoken into your life.
Thought some encouragement would be nice right now. I’m thankful for the work you do and god does through you. There is no doubt in my mind that god pointed me in your direction. For many years after my encounter my faith in god was seriously jeopardized. It wasn’t until I saw your website and watched some of your videos that i was able to put a biblical perspective on it. Now that i know what we’re dealing with, my faith in God is restored and strengthened more than ever before. I’m also thankful that you often respond to my emails as it can get overwhelming when a person has a crazy experience and there is nobody you can really talk to about it. I also thought it showed your true character when you took time from your busy life to call me, spend a few minutes talking with me and then pray for me. It meant a lot to me. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has felt alone because of their encounters and unusual experiences, and that you have done the same for them. People need to realize that this is how you make a living and that you are not an evangelist, although you do bring people to him or in my case back to him. Please don’t be discouraged and know that there are many people like me that are extremely grateful for the affect you have had on their life. I will continue to pray for you and your family as well as your ministry. Totally grateful,thankful and blessed by your work. Robert
