Multiple Agency Warrant Sweep

On Thursday March 23, 2017, the office of Pennsylvania State Constable Council Nedd, participated in warrant sweep with the Ferguson Township Police Warrant Squad and the Paton Township Police Warrant Squad.  The warrant squads were seeking individuals with outstanding summary warrants.  A total of 43 warrants were served before Magisterial District Judge Ronald J. Horner.  Constable Nedd closed out 18 warrants on the day of the sweep.  The charges were for traffic and non-traffic violations.

These warrant sweeps are important. Once charges are brought against an individual, the must be resolved in court and the defendant held accountable.  Though serious criminal warrants take priority over summary offences, all of the involved agencies make it a priority to serve all warrants.

Those with active warrants are encouraged to report to the local police department or district court to resolve the warrant so they are not inconvenienced by being placed under arrest at home, work, or school.

What I Think of This Headline

“It truly a shame that in the wake of the most recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, that the left is calling it an issue of gun control, rather than calling it what it is. What happened in San Bernardino is a terrorist attack perpetrated by radical Islamist.”

“I am also appalled by the left saying that the various calls for prayer by people of faith isn’t enough. All of those who said that prayer isn’t enough, I have one question for you, how much time have you spent in prayer asking for God to soften the hearts of the Islamic terrorist? How much time have you spent on your knees asking God to bring this to an end? You can’t complain that prayer isn’t working if you are not actually praying yourself”

“The Bible is clear that in Deuteronomy chapter 32, one person praying can put a thousand dark angels to flight; two people praying fervent prayers can put ten thousand to flight, so imagine the power of all the people of God praying to God for peace and for the welfare of this nation.”

“If you haven’t tried prayer, don’t knock it.”

 

The Kelly File… Debate Critique

by Bishop Council Nedd

On Monday I was asked if I would be willing to appear on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly.  I was asked to be on the Friday night show which would be an election critique and recap featuring pundits and regular Americans. I usually hate appearing on any sort of panel discussion.  For evidence of that, one need look no further than my last appearance on Sean Hannity’s show (but we don’t talk about that anymore).

Megyn KellyHowever, doing the Kelly File was enjoyable.  It’s very seldom that I go on television and I feel like there actually is iron sharpening iron.  However, that’s exactly what happened.  It’s usually punditry and sound bites.  I don’t actually recall what was said on the air and what wasn’t, as Megyn encouraged all of us to stay engaged through the breaks and that’s exactly what happened.

She apologized to me for not getting to the issue of faith during our discussion, but I understood.  However, I do hope there are more conversations about the role and importance of faith as we get closer to the election, while attacks on Christianity increase.

It is an important topic.

There are organized individuals in the country that want to rip up every cross by its roots and throw it in a wood pile for burning, be they secularists, atheists or radical Islamists.  I would like to see this crucial matter given more consideration, not just in the political discourse, but in the hearts of everyone who considers themselves a Christian or a person of faith.  In fact, it’s not merely an important topic.  It’s a topic with grave implications.

This is the first story I saw, when I turned on my Computer this morning…

“ISIS kidnaps more Christians. When will we put an end to this madness?”

As the chairman of In God We Trust, I will continue to fight, not just for the right of Christians to exist in America, but to remind people that the bounty of America comes from our creator.

 

Let’s Unite and Put ISIS to Flight

by Archbishop Council Nedd II

Having studied and taught history, I tend to look at things with a slightly longer view and in a broader context than most people. Most people tend to view the political world map as always having looked the way it does, but that clearly is not the case. The fact is that every couple of generations the geopolitical divisions change in a fairly dramatic way.

Most of these geopolitical changes, obviously, occur as a result of war or some armed conflict. ISIS has vowed to be the precipitating force for the next major geopolitical changes on the world map. ISIS is quickly encroaching on Jordan and has vowed to take control of the Holy Land. ISIS has also vowed to recapture Spain in the name of Islam.

If that’s not enough, not to be outdone by the ISIS newcomers, al-Qaeda has decided to focus its efforts on a conquest of the entire Indian subcontinent, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. Just five years ago, such exaggerated ambitions would have been considered little more than an absurd bluster by a small group seeking media attention. However, after viewing the ease with which ISIS has captured large swaths of northern Iraq and northern Syria, we all are right to be concerned.

The West and the Christian world should similarly be concerned that some of our citizens swiftly flocked to Syria and Iraq to assist ISIS in its efforts.

What should the United States do next? Recently I wrote an article calling for Kenya to be the firewall against Islam in Africa. However, the struggle in Kenya is only one front in this war against ISIS butchers, who will most assuredly stop at nothing in their effort to impose their barbarous brand of Islam.

We need several firewalls, and prompt and decisive action by world leaders, in order to extinguish the threat that radical Islam poses to our way of life.

The West, its affected political allies in the region, corporations and Christians must unite to stop ISIS now. How, you may be asking? First, Jordan and Turkey must also serve as firewalls. Jordan is all that stands between ISIS and Israel. Turkey, a secular state and NATO member with which the U.S. shares some affinity, must also be protected. If Turkey were to somehow fall to ISIS it would be an immediate psychological defeat for Europe.

Nations must step up in several ways. Nations must refuse to purchase or refine oil from any oil fields ISIS captures, and must make every effort to liberate those fields. Also, countries should immediately revoke the citizenship of those who leave home to fight with ISIS against the civilized world. The United Nations or the U.S., acting unilaterally, must confront France about press reports that it has been paying ISIS ransoms for its kidnapped citizens, funds which essentially gave ISIS start-up funds for its reign of terror. There is a high level of discernment with banks; however, money-transfer companies such as Western Union, MoneyGram International and Xoom must be discriminating when transfering funds into ISIS, Boko Haram and Al Shabab strongholds.

Last, and certainly not the least important, Christians and Jews must unite in prayer for peace and safety. In Zechariah 2:5, the Lord promises that he will be a wall of fire around his city. We need to come together. Deuteronomy 32:30 says that one person can put one thousand enemies of God to flight and two can put ten thousand enemies to flight. Imagine the power of thousands coming together in prayer and unity to defeat the threat that ISIS poses to the people of God.
