David Byrne says Donald Trump is "Burning Down the House"
In an lengthy new essay, Scottish-born Talking Heads frontman David Byrne theorized that the main reason for the explosive political rise of Donald Trump is his supporters' inability to seek information outside of the social media "echo chamber" to become more aware of the Republican presidential frontrunner's "lies and bullsh*t."

Conservatives now have proof why elections matter!

Who will the current President nominate? Will the Senate exercise its authority to advise and consent? Who would the Presidential contestants select to succeed Scalia? This will be a fascinating GOP debate tonight. And I expect that Senator Cruz will own this issue.

Obama should appoint Trump. Wouldn't that be a spectacle!

No, not yet

With the release of TWRP 3.0, the hope for flashing from adoptable storage was rekindled. But I had to first wait for a Samsung Galaxy S5 version of the recovery image. That arrived this morning.

Unfortunately, I then found out that the TWRP Manager had difficulty downloading the recovery ROM. So I had to download it myself and wait for the download. I rebooted my phone into TWRP and flashed the new version of TWRP on top of my recovery partition.

I then had to reboot and download a new ROM. I stored it on my SD card and crossed my fingers. Unfortunately, reading my adoptable storage from the recovery image didn't work. The option to do it was available. But TWRP couldn't read my encrypted partition. I guess I'm glad that it wasn't so easy to crack the ext4 filesystem encryption.

In the end, I had to reboot and move the file to the /data partition. Flashing worked from there. I guess that I'll wait until TWRP can read adoptable storage. But I do have a new version of TWRP. And it is quite flat with a Material Design look and feel. More importantly, there are a couple of cool, new features - even if reading my adoptable storage isn't one of them.

This may solve one problem. But it highlights a different problem.

The new version of TWRP has been released. And there is much to like about this version. Chief among these features is the ability of TWRP to read 'adopted' storage. This will radically simplify flashing ROM's in Marshmallow. But this also means that TWRP is cracking encryption to access that storage.

This is uber cool. But it also means that the encryption is trivial. For me, this means that Google must increase the strength of its encryption - or accept its security as wholly inadequate.
TWRP 3.0.0 Has Been Released. TWRP 3.0.0 has now been released for all devices that are currently supported and comes packed full of new features and a completely new look. The TWRP team has also issued a warning that as this release brings some significant changes it is possible that some ...

Hilarious Ted Cruz ad inspired by a scene from Mike Judge's "Office Space".

RIP, your honor.

So will the Republicans take up the approval of a new justice? And what if our President nominates someone like Bill Ayers? The GOP better grow a backbone. Without a Justice Scalia, constitutional conservatives are at risk of having the judiciary crumble into self-serving judicial activism.
Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

The only way to have a living church is for the believers to be alive in Christ.
 
My friends - be warned that simply attending church and going through the motions is no substitute for a relationship with Christ. It is entirely possible to go to church all your life and never know Jesus. I speak from experience of calling myself a Christian for 14 years without realising that there was no love in me for Jesus or for others.

I have written testimony about this if anyone would like to read it. https://plus.google.com/103946636710861440006/posts/KpcTGcLr1Fg 

Matthew 7: 21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

John Piper: “Nothing is greater than to see the Son of God in all his divine beauty and radiance and greatness, and be supremely and increasingly happy in him forever. And this is what Jesus prayed for you.”
There isn’t anything greater than to see the Son of God in all his divine beauty and radiance and greatness, and be supremely and increasingly happy in him forever.
