Michael Nathanson
Author
Coming from a family of writers, Michael Nathanson held a lifelong dream of one day weaving a good story that also points to hope and light in a darkened world. “Cries of the Eagle” is his first novel. He lives in Texas with his wife, Jan, and they joyfully serve together in the marriage ministry at their church.
Cries of the Eagle
A devastating explosion leaves a wake of death and destruction in a suburban Dallas high school. Senior Agent Gerry Bolton and Special Agent Jan Hanson of the Dallas FBI take on the case of the apparent bombing, with little to go on. No manifesto has been revealed to declare the perpetrator's identity or rationale, although terrorism is suspected. A later grotesque crime adds a further burden of urgency to the FBI's efforts. Aziz Malawi, a bright young Muslim engineer, is puzzled by a friend and coworker's failure to return to work from his vacation. He decides to check on him at his apartment. What he discovers sends him to the police, where he is immediately viewed as highly suspicious, is interrogated, and subsequently bumped up to the FBI for further scrutiny. It becomes clear to the FBI that Aziz is not a person of interest in the bombing crime, but quite the opposite - a devout American patriot, and a Muslim, who detests terrorism and terrorists. He entreats the FBI to allow him to become an active part of their investigation, which stretches from Dallas, Texas to Dearborn Michigan.

What Every American Needs to Know about the Qur'an: A History of Islam & the United States
You will be fascinated by this fast-paced, objective history of the world from a perspective you have never imagined. Current events will come into focus in the back drop of 1,400 years of inconceivable yet true events and conflicts. Thousands of books, documents and articles have been researched over several years in preparation for this book. In 2006, Keith Ellison became the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress. He swore in on a Qur'an. Most Americans know little about the Qur'an, who wrote it and how Islam spread. Within 100 years of Mohammed's death, his followers conquered North Africa, the Holy Land, Persia, Spain - from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. President Barak Obama stated in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009: "Islam has always been a part of America's story." Indeed, Islam has affected the Western World for 1,400 years, from 622 AD to today's headlines. This book will give you a fascinating glimpse into captivating events and amazing stories- you won't want to put it down!

Transgender Policy backfiring on Target
Target's market cap down $6 billion since start of transgender bathroom policy

After announcing on April 19 that it "welcome[s] transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," Target faced an instant and broad public backlash that led to a boycott petition being posted online by the American Family Association the next day.

The petition currently has 1.24 million supporters, and undoubtedly a much larger share of the public disagrees with Target's policy.

Franklin Graham statement on the bathroom issue
‘Who Does President Barack Obama Think He Is?’: Evangelist Franklin Graham Issues Blistering Reaction to Transgender Bathroom Directive

Evangelist Franklin Graham issued a strong rebuke of the Obama administration’s recent decision to direct public schools to permit transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds their gender identity, asking whether Obama believes he’s “the sultan of Washington.”

“Who does President Barack Obama think he is? The sultan of Washington?” Graham wrote on his Facebook page. “Does he think he can just make a ‘decree’ and we will bow down and simply obey?”

The Christian leader, who is president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, went on to say that he believes that the directive ignores the protection and privacy of other students, likening it to “discrimination” and claiming that the provision “opens up bathrooms to sexual predators and perverts.”
Polling on Bathroom Issue
CBS News Poll: Transgender kids and school bathrooms

As the issue of the rights of transgender people comes more to the foreground, schools across the U.S. have been confronted with a new issue: how to handle gender-specific bathrooms and locker rooms.

A state law passed in California allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice, while some school districts in other parts of the country have been criticized for mandating that students use the facilities of the gender with which they were born.

Most Americans (59 percent) aren't comfortable with the idea of transgender students picking which bathroom or locker room to use, and think they should use the facilities of the gender they were born as, while 26 percent think they should be allowed to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of their preferred gender.
Chicago will now punish students for not using Proper Transgender Language
Chicago Public Schools are telling employees – and even students – that they will be punished if they don’t use government-directed language when debating or talking about sex and gender.

The new rules have gone all-in to push the “gender identity” ideology and transgender agenda by demanding that everyone in the school system must use the scientifically incorrect pronouns and made-up names preferred by a tiny minority of people who say they prefer to be treated as members of the opposite sex.

“The guidelines released today will help ensure every student and adult in the CPS family can participate in an environment of complete tolerance and respect,” CPS Chief Education Officer Dr. Janice K. Jackson said in a press release.
Trans issue is about Erasing Gender Distinctions:
How The Trans-Agenda Seeks To Redefine Everyone
The transgender movement has strong totalitarian overtones that Americans don’t fully understand.

Did you think only women get pregnant? Or only women get abortions? Planned Parenthood and NARAL—ironically both pro-abortion organizations that self-identify as champions of women’s rights—may soon be trying to change your mind about that.

One signal comes from a little petition drive that goes by #protransprochoice. It urges both Planned Parenthood and NARAL to adopt language more “inclusive” of transgender persons and to acknowledge “gender-non-conforming” people. Both pro-abortion organizations, which have been longtime supporters of the LGBT lobby, tweeted back supportive replies.
Bathroom Bulling
The Obama administration has taken two extraordinary steps this week in their attempt to pander to so-called “LGBT Rights” activists, and both of them are getting huge backlash. From citizens, and from states.

The Obama administration has taken two extraordinary steps this week in their attempt to pander to so-called “LGBT Rights” activists, and both of them are getting huge backlash. From citizens, and from states.

First, Obama’s Social Justice Department announced they were filing suit against North Carolina over the state’s passage of HB2, which allows businesses to choose how they wish to operate their public bathrooms (as opposed to the Charlotte City Ordinance that required businesses to allow gender crossover in bathrooms and was the reason the state brought the bill up in the first place.)
Trump warns of danger of attack from Refugees
Donald Trump warns of another 9/11-style attack by refugees using ISIS-funded phones

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trumped warned of an 11 September-level attack led by refugees who enter the US with mobile phones funded by the so-called Islamic State.

In an interview with the National Border Patrol Council’s Green Line radio programme, Mr Trump answered whether or not he believed it would take a large-scale attack on US soil for Americans to “wake up” about border security.

“I do, I actually do,” he said. ““Bad things will happen - a lot of bad things will happen. There will be attacks that you wouldn’t believe. There will be attacks by the people that are right now that are coming into our country, because, I have no doubt in my mind.”
