Focus on Israel

1. It's official: US withholds $65 million in Palestinian aid, demands UN re-examination- Times of Israel

In a letter, the State Department notified the U.N. Relief and Works Agency that the U.S. is withholding $65 million of a planned $125 million funding installment to the body. The letter also makes clear that additional U.S. donations will be contingent on major changes by UNRWA, which has been heavily criticized by Israel.

"We would like to see some reforms be made," said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, adding that changes are needed both to the way the agency operates and is funded. "This is not aimed at punishing anyone."

2. Palestinian officials vote to suspend recognition of Israel, security cooperation - Washington Post

JERUSALEM - Palestinian leaders on Monday voted to suspend recognition of Israel until it reciprocates by recognizing a Palestinian state and to cease security cooperation, as the political fallout from the Trump administration's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital escalated.

Members of the Palestine Liberation Organization's central council made the recommendation during a meeting in the West Bank city of Ramallah, where they had gathered to formulate their response to recent moves by Washington that have incensed the Palestinian leadership.

In addition to the Jerusalem decision, the Trump administration has also threatened to close down offices of the PLO in Washington and, according to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, attempted to present a peace plan that gave them a suburb of Jerusalem as their capital, instead of the city's eastern side. When Abbas said the United States could no longer be considered a fair broker for negotiations, the U.S. administration threatened aid cuts.

3. Defense Minister: IDF Will Destroy All Hamas Terror Tunnels by End of 2018 - Algemeiner

JNS.org - Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli television that the Jewish state has developed cutting-edge counter-tunnel technology that will enable it to destroy all Hamas terror tunnels by the end of 2018.

Lieberman's remarks followed last weekend's detection and destruction of a Hamas terror tunnel running under the Egypt, Gaza and Israel borders. It was the third terror tunnel the IDF has destroyed in recent months.

"By the end of 2018, we will have eliminated all of Hamas's attack tunnels. We may even manage to do so sooner, but the task is to destroy them all by the end of the year," Lieberman said.

4. IDF chief: Iranian nuclear threat 'is not theoretical'- Times of Israel

Iran's desire for nuclear weapons has not been extinguished by the nuclear deal it signed with world powers, IDF Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said Tuesday.

Speaking at an event of bereaved families organization Yad Labanim in Eilat, Eisenkor said "The Iranian threat is not theoretical. The intent and desire to reach nuclear capability exists, despite the deal."

US President Donald Trump last week said Washington would withdraw from the accord this year unless its terms were changed.

5. Erdogan to meet pope for talks said to focus on Jerusalem - Times of Israel

VATICAN, Holy See - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Pope Francis at the Vatican next month for talks likely to focus on the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Turkish leader and head of the Roman Catholic Church both strongly opposed the move announced by US President Donald Trump at the end of last year.

Trump's December 6 White House address defied worldwide warnings. But the US president insisted that after repeated failures to achieve peace, a new approach was long overdue, describing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the seat of Israel's government as merely based on reality.

The move was hailed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and by leaders across much of the Israeli political spectrum and angered Palestinian and Arab leaders. Trump stressed that he was not specifying the boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in the city, and called for no change in the status quo at the city's holy sites.

The Daily Brief

1. President Donald J. Trump Proclaims January 16, 2018, as Religious Freedom Day-

Faith is embedded in the history, spirit, and soul of our Nation. On Religious Freedom Day, we celebrate the many faiths that make up our country, and we commemorate the 232nd anniversary of the passing of a State law that has shaped and secured our cherished legacy of religious liberty.

Our forefathers, seeking refuge from religious persecution, believed in the eternal truth that freedom is not a gift from the government, but a sacred right from Almighty God. On the coattails of the American Revolution, on January 16, 1786, the Virginia General Assembly passed the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom. This seminal bill, penned by Thomas Jefferson, states that, "all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities." Five years later, these principles served as the inspiration for the First Amendment, which affirms our right to choose and exercise faith without government coercion or reprisal.

Father, thank You for this Proclamation! We celebrate this day and are grateful that we are free to practice our beliefs.

"I will walk in freedom,for I have devoted myself to your commandments."(Psalm 119:45)


2. Lawmakers see shutdown's odds rising - The Hill

Lawmakers warned Tuesday that the chances for a government shutdown are greater than at any other time since a 16-day closure in October 2013. Republicans appear poised to offer a plan forward that would fund the government for another month while extending a popular children's health program for six years. But Republican leaders will need Democratic votes in the Senate - and possibly the House as well - to pass that measure. And Democrats are refusing to make any commitments until they strike a deal to shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children.

"It's pretty close to 50-50," Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) said of the possibility of a shutdown. "It's like playing chicken and seeing who is going to blink first. It's a dangerous game." A conservative House lawmaker said Tuesday that prospects for a deal on a short-term stopgap are "not looking good" at the moment. "There is currently not a policy path to reach 218 votes in the House on funding the government," the lawmaker said. "For the first time since 2013, the possibility of a shutdown is real."

We pray You would orchestrate agreement among our legislators for the good of our nation. Help our leaders find a way forward.

Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? (Amos 3:3)


3. The president's vital signs - Axios

The White House briefing began with a readout of President Trump's vitals from Dr. Ronny Jackson, who conducted the routine physical examination. "The president's overall health is excellent," Jackson said. The bottom line: After the examination, Trump's doctor is confident that the president will complete his term in the Oval Office "with no serious medical issues." How is Trump healthy despite his diet and lack of exercise? "He has incredibly good genes. It's just the way God made him."

Trump requested a cognitive exam during the session. Trump scored 30/30 on a test of his cognitive ability - "The Montreal Cognitive Assessment" which screened for Alzheimer's and dementia, among other illnesses. "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability," Jackson said. Trump is 6'3" and weighs 239 pounds. Jackson added that he discussed a diet plan with the president that would include a smaller amount of carbohydrates and fats. A reasonable goal is for Trump to lose 10-15 pounds in the next year, he said. "The president has acknowledged that he'd be healthier if he lost a few pounds." Trump's physical exam lasted over 4 hours and involved 12 medical consultants.

Father, we thank You for this good report and for Dr. Ronny Jackson's words giving glory to You: "He has incredibly good genes. It's just the way God made him."

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14)


4. DHS seeking to charge leaders of sanctuary cities - Washington Times

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. "The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available," Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her confirmation came after California's new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community. Mr. Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies. Mr. Homan repeated that demand in an interview with Fox News earlier this year, setting off a firestorm of criticism.

Father, we pray our courts will uphold the Administration's Executive Authority to enforce our laws and maintain national order.

When law and order are being destroyed, what can godly people do? (Psalm 11:3)


5. Trump asks Supreme Court to overturn DACA program - Washington Times

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court Tuesday to overturn this month's stunning ruling by a lower court that found the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty legal - yet also ruled the Trump administration's effort to phase out the program was illegal. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the ruling "defies both law and common sense," and said they're asking the justices to hear the case directly, skipping over the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which would be the normal path. The request comes as Congress is trying to figure out a permanent solution for the 690,000 illegal immigrant "Dreamers" currently protected by DACA.

Judge William Alsup threw a curveball at Capitol Hill last week when he issued a series of ruling. He said then-candidate Donald Trump showed "racial animus" toward Mexicans during the 2016 campaign, and he said since most DACA recipients are Mexican, that tainted the Homeland Security Department's decision last year to phase out the deportation amnesty. Judge Alsup, a Clinton appointee to the bench, also became the first judge to rule the 2012 DACA program itself legal. At stake in the case is whether Mr. Trump may enforce a March 5 phaseout for the DACA program. Judge Alsup ruled that deadline illegal and ordered the administration to begin accepting renewal DACA applications once again.

Father, we pray the Supreme Court will hear this case and reign in federal judges who are overstepping their authority and exercising veto power over the executive branch of our government.

I said, 'This far and no farther will you come. Here your proud waves must stop!' (Job 38:11)


6. FBI Probe Into Russian Uranium Bribes Concealed By Obama DOJ; Mueller, McCabe, Rosenstein Involved - Zerohedge

Friday's 11-count indictment of former uranium transportation company executive, Mark Lambert, was the latest in a series of DOJ prosecutions involving individuals linked to the Russian nuclear industry and the Uranium One deal. According to the indictment, Lambert and others at Transport Logistics International (TLI) engaged in several counts of bribery, kickbacks and money laundering with Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure business advantages with TENEX - a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin's state-owned energy company which bought Uranium One.

TLI would have ostensibly transported all of the uranium from the U1 deal, were it not for an FBI undercover mole buried deep within the Russian nuclear industry who gathered extensive evidence of corruption. Four individuals were eventually prosecuted and given plea agreements after the Uranium One deal was approved. The prosecuting DOJ attorneys? Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and top Mueller investigator in the Trump-Russia probe, Andrew Weissman - who praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for defying Trump. The judge? Theodore Chuang - an Obama appointee who went to Harvard Law at the same time as Obama, advised Hillary Clinton as "Counselor on detail to the United States Department of State," and just so happened to strike down Trump's "Travel Ban" Executive Order. Chuang's wife, Jacinta Ma served as a senior policy advisor to Michelle Obama.

Father, we pray all the wrongdoing related to the Uranium One deal will be completely exposed, and each person responsible will be found out.

For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. (Luke 12:2)


7. US military members receive biggest pay bump since 2010 - Fox Business

Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.

At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration's initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president. In 2017, the Obama administration issued a 2.1% increase. The new pay increase went into effect on Jan. 1, however, this is the first full week that paychecks will reflect the higher amounts. The raise is in line with private sector wage growth, according to Militarybenefits.com.

Even though Trump signed the raises into law through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in December, the government still needs to agree on how to fund the act during the budget process, since it is over the cap imposed by the defense sequester. With a Friday deadline looming for Congress to reach a deal to keep the government funded, the military stands to be impacted by a potential shutdown in a number of ways. If the government fails to pass a budget by midnight on Friday, both civilian and active troop members are unlikely to receive paychecks. Active duty members are expected to continue to perform their tasks and all civilian personnel who are essential to supporting them will also be required to go to work.

Father, we thank You for our military personnel and their families. We pray our lawmakers will make a deal and there will be no gap in their paychecks.

"A worker should be given his pay." (1 Timothy 5:18b)


8. Iowa lawsuit pits gay rights against religious freedom - Yahoo

The University of Iowa is caught up in a legal fight with a conservative Christian student group that denied a leadership position to a student who is gay. The case pits a university policy barring discrimination based on sexual orientation against the religious beliefs of a 10-member group called Business Leaders in Christ. The group sued after the state's flagship university in Iowa City revoked its campus registration in November. The group says its membership is open to everyone, but that its leaders must affirm a statement of faith that rejects homosexuality. The university says it respects the right of students, faculty and staff to practice the religion of their choice but does not tolerate discrimination of any kind.

The group, founded in the spring of 2015 by students at the university's Tippie College of Business, met weekly for Bible study, to conduct service projects and to mentor students on "how to continually keep Christ first in the fast-paced business world." The group's loss of registration as an on-campus student organization means it can no longer reserve campus meeting space, participate in student recruitment fairs, access funds from student activity fees or use university-wide communication services.

Read more

Father, we pray this group, Business Leaders in Christ, will receive favor in the court and be restored as a student group on campus. We pray other Christian student groups will refuse to be marginalized and take cases of discrimination to court.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)


9. Parents arrested after 12 children, ages 2-29, found shackled in California home - FoxNews

A Southern California couple is in custody on suspicion of torture and child endangerment after 12 of their children allegedly were found captive in the couple's home, with some of them shackled to beds. David Turpin, 57, and Louise Turpin, 49, were each being held on $9 million bail, the Riverside County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Monday afternoon. Authorities said the investigation began after a 17-year-old girl "escaped" from the home in Perris and called 911 early Sunday to report that her 12 brothers and sisters were being held by their parents.

The sheriff's office said investigators initially believed the "slightly emaciated" girl was just 10 years old when they first saw her. When officers and deputies went to the Turpins' home, they found "several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings," according to the sheriff's office. The statement added that the parents were "were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner." Authorities initially believed that all the victims they found were children. However, investigators eventually discovered that seven of the victims were over 18.

Read more

Father, this story deeply saddens us. We pray these children will be placed in loving, supportive homes where Your Holy Spirit can bring them restoration and healing. We also pray for the parents, Lord, who have lost their way so completely. We pray for their sincere repentance and salvation.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)


10. Promise Kept: U.S. Aid Bypassing UN to Help Christian Victims of ISIS - CBN News

Millions of dollars in U.S. assistance are now flowing to desperate Christian, Yazidi and other minority refugees in northern Iraq. It's a fulfillment of Vice President Mike Pence's promise last year to "stop funding ineffective relief efforts at the United Nations" and "provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID (the United States Agency for International Development)." USAID says $55 million in aid money will now go to addressing minority groups in areas of northern Iraq retaken from ISIS.

In a speech last year at the 'In Defense of Christians' annual Solidarity Dinner for Christians in the Middle East, Pence called out the U.N.'s failure to help religious minorities, especially Christians, in Iraq. "Those days are over," he said. "Our fellow Christians and all who are persecuted in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly." An unnamed White House official told Fox News, "We are very confident that not only will U.S. funds go more directly toward assisting persecuted religious minorities, the U.N. is also stepping up to the plate to further fund effective programs that directly go to communities, particularly in Iraq."

Read more

Father, we pray this aid will bring hope and restoration to our brothers and sisters in Christ. We pray Your angels will watch over the aid and direct it where You desire.

"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. (Psalm 91:14)

The aftermath


Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is the one who started the firestorm of President Donald Trump disparaging poor nations that happened to be of African descent. It took just one leftist who often has exaggerated the truth for political gain to fan the flames of racism once again in America. The theme of the left has been to declare certain things-whether true or not, or even partially true-characterize them as racist, homophobic, misogynist, Islamophobic, or whatever phobia casts a doubt on a person's character, and then paint those who support that person politically with the same broad brush. This is what has happened with the alleged remark by the President.

Timed perfectly for the holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., Durbin hit a home run in further establishing an international narrative that America is racist because it has a racist president and, therefore, the people who support him or voted for him are also racist. Al Sharpton, for example, told TMZ, "You don't have to spray paint the N-word over the Oval Office and sleep with a KKK hood to be racist. If you have racist policies, say racist things, operate in a racist manner you are a racist, period end of story." Congressman John L. Lewis (D-GA) told ABC's The View that he boycotted the Trump inauguration because, "The movement taught us to withdraw from evil. And I never felt that his election was legitimate."

Congressman Gregory Meeks (D-NY) told MSNBC, "his statements that he made clearly shows that he wants to make America not great, but wants to make America just white..." On The McLaughlin Group, leftist Bill Press said of those who voted for Trump, "So, you got 35 percent of the most extreme wacko racist-I don't know-rednecks in the country." Joel B Pollak, Senior Editor of Breitbart News, summarizes: "Durbin knew exactly what he was doing when he leaked, or distorted, the president's remarks. He was confirming Trump's image in the minds of his critics, mobilizing forces of fear and division - such that a black librarian could tell the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that Trump would "love to take us back all the way to slavery."

This week is likely a pivotal moment in the Trump presidency. The leftists have nailed a narrative that slots Trump AND his supporters as racists-this is a deep hole to dig out of. Especially when the 24-7 news media repeats it with impunity. We cannot control what the left or the news media is doing. We cannot control Trump's word usage, although someone needs to help him with this. We can control what we are doing and saying. It is a time to dismiss this vile and untrue rhetoric and build our case for living out Luke 6:31, "And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise." It is unfair to stereotype everyone as a racist who disagrees with liberal politics. They accuse others of the very thing they do.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Focus on Israel

1. Israel says it destroyed 'attack tunnel' that went from Gaza into Israel and Egypt - LA Times

It was an unusual and terse announcement: "In accordance with current assessments," the Israel army said on Saturday, the Kerem Shalom Crossing would be closed the next day. There was no further explanation. Kerem Shalom is one of the Gaza Strip's few lifelines to the outer world and the principal entry point for humanitarian aid.

The mystery was resolved at 7 a.m. Sunday, when Israel announced that its air force had destroyed a tunnel running from the Gaza Strip south into Egypt and north into Israel under the delicate triple-border area of Rafah. (Read more)


2. Peace efforts can only resume under international mediation: Abbas - Reuters

RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday he would only accept a broad, internationally-backed panel to broker any peace talks with Israel, but did not rule out a U.S. role in such a panel.

The Palestinians are seething at U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition last month of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and Abbas told a meeting of senior Palestinian officials in a speech that the move had disqualified the United States as a peacemaker.

Israel says it would welcome the United States as a mediator but a U.S. bid to revive negotiations, led by Trump's adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has so far shown no progress. Talks have been frozen since 2014. (Read more)


3. Abbas confirms Palestinians being offered Abu Dis as capital of future state - Jerusalem Post

The Palestinians are being offered Abu Dis as the capital of a future Palestinian state, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday.

Abu Dis is a Palestinian town on the outskirts of Jerusalem, where Al-Quds University, one of the largest Palestinian universities, is located.

Abbas's comments came during a speech he delivered to a meeting of the Palestinian Central Council, the Palestine Liberation Organization's second-highest decision-making body.

"What would you want if Jerusalem were to be lost? Would you want to make a state with Abu Dis as its capital?" Abbas stated rhetorically. "That's what they are offering us now. Abu Dis." (Read more)

4. Abbas Curses Trump: "May Your House be Destroyed" - United with Israel

Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas called on the Palestinian Central Council (PCC) during a meeting in Ramallah on Sunday to revise the peace agreements signed between the Palestinians and Israel, while viciously lashing out at the US and President Donald Trump in an unprecedented way.

The PCC opened a two-day meeting called to discuss the ramifications of the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and to discuss Palestinian strategy after that.

Abbas railed at Trump in a fiery, two-hour-long speech, saying "shame on you" for his stance towards the Palestinians and warning that he would have no problem rejecting what Trump suggested as a peace plan, a plan Abbas said would be unacceptable. (Read more)

- Father, we thank you for the courage of our President , and pray that Abbas will be silenced. We reverse every curse uttered by every hateful person who doesn't like what he has been doing.

- "I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you."
(Genesis 12:3a,b)


5. Bitter Abbas to Trump: We reject your peace 'deal of the century' - Times of Israel

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday said a peace plan being worked on by US President Donald Trump insulted the Palestinians, calling it a slap in the face, and said the Palestinians would not accept any part of it.

"We told Trump we will not accept his project, the 'deal of the century,' which has become the 'slap of the century,'" said Abbas, expressing Palestinian anger over the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "But we will slap back."

"We do not take instructions from anyone, and say 'no' to anyone if it is about our destiny, our cause, our country and our people . . . 1,000 times no,'" he said, opening a meeting of the Palestine Liberation Organization's Central Council in Ramallah. (Read more)


6. Trump has 'failed to undermine' nuke deal, Rouhani boasts - Times of Israel

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani boasted Sunday that recent efforts by US President Donald Trump have "failed to undermine" the 2015 nuclear deal.

Speaking live on state television, Rouhani said that "the American administration has failed to undermine the nuclear deal" and that "Trump, despite his repeated efforts, has failed to undermine the accord," Reuters reported. (Read more)


7. Netanyahu: World powers seeking to keep Iran nuclear deal alive should fix it - Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday said that fixing the Iranian nuclear deal signed with the world powers in 2015 would increase the chances of it remaining in place, amid threats by US President Donald Trump to withdraw from the accord.

Speaking by phone with French President Emmanuel Macron, the Israeli prime minister said that "Trump's remarks should be taken seriously, and whoever wants to keep the nuclear deal would be wise to fix it," a statement from Netanyahu's office read.

The call came a day after Trump demanded that European partners work with Washington to "fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw." (Read more)


8. US Attorney General Sessions sets up Hezbollah investigation team - Jerusalem Post

WASHINGTON - The US Justice Department has set up a team to investigate individuals and organizations providing support to Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Islamist group in Lebanon that the US has branded a terrorist organization, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Thursday.

Republicans have criticized former President Barack Obama following a December Politico report that the Obama administration hindered a Drug Enforcement Administration program targeting Hezbollah's trafficking operations during its negotiation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Sessions said the Justice Department will assemble leading investigators and prosecutors for the Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team to ensure all investigations under the DEA program, called Project Cassandra, will be completed.

"The Justice Department will leave no stone unturned in order to eliminate threats to our citizens from terrorist organizations and to stem the tide of the devastating drug crisis," Sessions said. (Read more)


9. PM heralds 'dawn of a new day' in Israel-India relations - Israel Hayom

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in New Delhi on Sunday for his first visit to India, with the aim of expanding defense, trade and energy ties.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi received Netanyahu at Palam Airport in New Delhi. Netanyahu's office put out an announcement saying that Modi's greeting was a "surprise welcome" because a cabinet minister had been scheduled to attend instead.

During the six-day stay, the two countries are expected to sign collaboration agreements in the fields of cybersecurity, energy, space, and film production, India's External Affairs Ministry said. They are also expected to review progress on deals in the fields of technology, water and agriculture that were signed during Modi's historic visit to Israel last year, the first by an Indian prime minister to Israel.

Thousands of people took part on Saturday evening in an anti-corruption rally in Tel Aviv for the seventh week in a row, with demonstrators calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign over graft allegations.

During Saturday's protest, minor scuffles broke out between demonstrators and right-wing counter protesters, dozens of whom attended the rally, according to Hebrew media reports. (Read more)

- Lord God, we ask that all false accusations being spoken against Prime Minister Netanyahu be exposed, as evidence comes forth revealing the truth. We ask for the vindication of the leader of Israel, in Your Name, Abba, amen.

11. Christians bringing Bible study to the Knesset - Jerusalem Post

. . . The Knesset is already built on a solid biblical foundation, yet the Schindler Society is adding an important element that has not - and could not have - existed until this day. Emerging from the pro-Israel Christian community, this week's Bible study is the fulfillment of one of the most beautiful descriptions of Jerusalem.

The Hebrew prophet Isaiah wrote that one day the Jewish people would return to their homeland and to their eternal capital.

When that day finally arrives, "all the nations shall gaze on it with joy. And the many peoples shall go and say: 'Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; that He may instruct us in His ways, and that we may walk in His paths.' For instruction shall come forth from Zion, the word of Hashem from Jerusalem" (Isaiah 2: 2,3). (Read more)

- Father God, we thank You for this new development among members of the Knesset. We ask that Your grace would visit these students of Your Word, bringing them greater peace, insight and guidance, in Your name, amen.

- "The law of the Lord is [d]perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether."
(Psalm 19:7,8,9)


12. The Bible is 'coming to life,' prominent Christian author says - Jerusalem Post

In his latest book, author Bill Koenig offers a new outlook for Christians: The Bible is coming to life and no one is noticing. "We are living in the most significant and important time in Bible-prophecy history - with the least amount of interest in the Church," Koenig said. "There are so many distractions today, people are being pulled in so many directions, there is an information overload, and it amazes me that there is so little interest."

. . . Koenig told the founder of Olive Tree Ministries over the weekend that still only a small percentage of church-goers understand the biblical significance behind the events that the Trump administration has ushered in, such as recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and possibly approaching the peace deal as described in Daniel 9:27.

"The fact that Jerusalem is God's time-clock, the nations that we know to watch, the leaders that we know to watch. We are so blessed that we fully understand it," said Koenig, the author of "Eye to Eye - Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel" and "Revealed - Obama's Legacy. The Bible is playing out right before our eyes. The Jewish prophets of the [Bible] spoke of these days. And we are honored and privileged and blessed to be living in this day." (Read more)


The Daily Brief

1. Sarah Sanders Provides Proof Trump Was Misquoted By The Wall Street Journal - legalinsurrection

In this time of rampant Trump Derangement Syndrome saturating formerly credible news outlets, it's become the norm to expect the media to lie intentionally about President Trump. While it does not appear that the Wall Street Journal was lying intentionally, it has become clear that they (willfully?) misheard a quote from the president and then ran with its implications in a full article. In "Donald Trump Signals Openness to North Korea Diplomacy in Interview: President cites a positive relationship with nation's leader; also accuses Steve Bannon of betrayal," the WSJ reports:

President Donald Trump said he believes he has developed a positive relationship with North Korea's leader despite their mutual public insults, suggesting he is open to diplomacy after months of escalating tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear-weapons program. "I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un, " Mr. Trump said in an interview Thursday with The Wall Street Journal. "I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised." Asked if he has spoken with Mr. Kim, Mr. Trump said: "I don't want to comment on it. I'm not saying I have or haven't. I just don't want to comment."

This is a complete misrepresentation of what the president said. Trump did not boast that "he believes he has developed a positive relationship with North Korea's leader despite their mutual public insults." The implication here is that Trump's "belief" in this positive relationship defies public evidence to the contrary ("mutual public insults"). In short, according to this reading, the president is lying at best and living in a fantasy world at worst. (Read more)

- Father, the news media appears to continue to lie, and twist facts about the President. Thank You for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who stands up for the truth. We ask that no matter how bad it gets, Your anointing and favor will rest upon this administration, and that no weapon against them will prosper.

- "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You will condemn." (Isaiah 54:17)


2. Two GOP Senators Claim Trump Didn't Use Vulgarity, Say Durbin 'Misrepresented' Remarks - NBC News

Two Republican senators who attended a meeting on immigration with President Donald Trump claimed Sunday that he did not use the phrase "s--thole countries" in reference to Haiti and African nations, and one accused Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, of misrepresenting the president's comments.

Sen. David Perdue, of Georgia, said in an appearance on ABC's "This Week" that Durbin's account of Thursday's meeting at the White House was a "total misrepresentation" of what happened. Perdue, one of six lawmakers present at the meeting, insisted on Sunday that Trump "did not use that word."

Sen. Tom Cotton, of Arkansas, was also at the meeting and echoed Perdue's denial on CBS' "Face The Nation" Sunday. "I didn't hear that word either," Cotton said, adding, "I certainly didn't hear what Senator Durbin has said repeatedly." (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that truth will be revealed. We take authority over the spirit of the accuser and command him to be silent by the Power of Jesus' Mighty Name. We also bind up the President's heart into Yours and ask that You help him seek Your Face in all that he does and says.

- "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles." (Psalm 34:17)


3. Rand Paul Reveals What Trump Did For Haiti As A Private Citizen, Delivers Blow To 'Racist' Narrative - Daily Wire

On Sunday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) delivered a major blow to the media's narrative that President Donald Trump's supposed "s***hole" remark about Haiti proves that he is "racist." Paul appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" with host Chuck Todd where he revealed that Donald Trump, as a private citizen, was a major financial backer of medical mission trips to Haiti which resulted in life-changing surgeries for hundreds of Haitians.

Speaking about Trump's alleged "s***hole" comment, Paul said, "You know, I don't think the comments were constructive at all, but I also think that to be fair we shouldn't draw conclusions that he didn't intend. I know personally about his feelings towards Haiti and toward Central America because when I was not a candidate for president and he wasn't a candidate for president I went down there on a medical mission trip," Paul continued. "I did about 200 cataract surgeries with a group of surgeons in Haiti and the same in Central America, and when we asked Donald J. Trump as a private citizen to support those trips, he was a large financial backer of both medical mission trips." (Read more)

- Lord, the President is not a racist, and we pray that the truth be revealed more and more. We ask that You begin to cause his enemies to be ashamed, and dismiss their lies.

- "Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly." (Psalm 6:10)


4. Judge's DACA ruling seen by some legal scholars as problematic, report says - Fox News

The judge who barred the Trump administration from turning back the Obama-era DACA program last week has some legal scholars concerned that the ruling could damage the notion of an impartial bench. The New York Times reported Sunday that Judge William Alsup, the federal judge from the Northern District of California, used a local case before issuing the nationwide stop.

"How can a single judge decide a question for the whole country?" Samuel Bray, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, asked the paper. Bray wrote a recent article where he spoke out against federal judges issuing nationwide injunctions, the paper reported. (Read more)

- Lord, we rejoice that someone has noticed the partisanship of many judges in America. The purpose of the judicial branch is being pulled apart by activists who hate Mr. Trump. We bind up their actions and the spirit that runs them, and loose Your Holy Spirit and the Blood of Jesus Christ against all agendas that seek to destroy our nation.

- " . . . whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven." (Matthew 16:19)


5. Feds Raid California 'Maternity Hotels' for Birth Tourists - NBC News

Southern California apartment complexes that doubled as "maternity hotels" for Chinese women who want made-in-America babies were raided early Tuesday, capping an unprecedented federal sting operation, officials said. NBC News was on the scene as Homeland Security agents swept into The Carlyle, a luxury property in Irvine, California, which housed pregnant women and new moms who allegedly forked over $40,000 to $80,000 to give birth in the United States.

"I am doing this for the education of the next generation," one of the women told NBC News. None of the women were arrested; they are being treated as material witnesses, and paramedics were on hand in case any of them went into labor during the sweep. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that legislators stop the "anchor baby" situation. It is not likely that China is the only one who does this. Father we have compassion on the families, but at the same time we understand that this problem is not sustainable either in broke California or across the country.

- "Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding." (Proverbs 3:13)


6. Lewandowski to testify over alleged Russia election meddling - NY Post

President Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski revealed on Sunday that he is expected to appear this week before a House panel probing Russian involvement in the 2016 election. Lewandowski said his appearance before the House Intelligence Committee either on Wednesday or Thursday is voluntary and will take place behind closed doors. He said that he has nothing to hide. (Read more)

- Lord we ask that only Your truth fill the mouths of the men who will testify this week. We pray that no personal agendas or grudges would be allowed.

- "Your righteousness is is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth." (Psalm 119:142)


7. Grand jury indicts Maryland executive in Uranium One deal: report - The Hill

A grand jury reportedly brought charges in the Uranium One investigation against a man who investigators say tried to bribe a Russian official at the country's state-run nuclear energy corporation. Mark Lambert, former head of a Maryland-based transportation company, was indicted last Thursday on 11 counts of money laundering and wire fraud, according to the New York Post.

The Uranium One investigation centers on the Obama administration's clearing of a business deal that allowed a Russian nuclear firm to buy a Canadian uranium mining company with assets in the U.S. In the indictment, prosecutors accuse Lambert of hiding the payments to the Russian official by using code words such as "lucky figures," "lucky numbers" and "cake." The official Lambert was accused of bribing works at a subsidiary of Russia's State Atomic Energy Corp. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that You enable the investigation into the Uranium One scandal to reach to those we believe were involved one an even deeper scale. Let the greedy be removed.

- "Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." (Luke 12:15)


8. Hawaii installs new safeguard after false missile alert- NY POST

Embarrassed Hawaiian officials have already installed a new safeguards to prevent another debacle like on Saturday, when residents received a terrifying emergency text saying a missile strike was imminent.

Gov. David Ige has said that an employee with the state's emergency management office "pushed the wrong button," issuing the dire-sounding missive when he was supposed to simply test the warning system. But panic-stricken islanders had to wait 38 minutes for a second alert giving them the all-clear - because an existing "cancel" button only stops "further issuances of the false alarm,'' the state's emergency-management chief, Vern Miyagi, told MSNBC on Sunday. (Read more)

- Father, we thank you that no missile attack came against Hawaii. We ask that You help the state revamp all protocols for these kinds of situations, and that one person alone will not be able to cause mass panic unnecessarily. We also pray for a mighty move of Your Spirit across the Hawaiian islands, that fear would be removed far from them.

- "For the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)


9. Metro train with 60 passengers derails near Farragut North, officials say - ABC News

A Metro train has derailed while carrying 60 passengers outside the Farragut North station Monday morning, according to authorities. Metro says that the Red Line train left the tracks at around 6:40 a.m. and that none of the 63 total people, including Metro employees, on board were injured. Around 8 a.m. Metro reported that all passengers had been safely offloaded at Metro Center.

Red Line service is suspended from Dupont Circle to Judiciary Square because of the derailment. Red Line is running between Shady Grove and Dupont and from Glenmont to Judiciary Square. The D.C. Fire Department says they are responding to the scene between the Farragut North and the Metro Center stops. They say there is no fire involved with the derailment. Metro says it was a 7000 series train with multiple railcars that went off the tracks at the oldest section of the system. (Read more)

- Lord we thank You that this incident did not cause any deaths or injuries. We ask that it be repaired quickly and seamlessly.

- "The crooked places shall be made straight." (Isaiah 40:4c)


10. Visiting North Korea? Draft a will and make funeral plans, State Department says - Fox News

Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned.

The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. "The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea," the State Department published Wednesday on its website.

Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a special validation, which are handed out on "very limited circumstances." U.S. travelers given the approval to experience Kim Jong Un's regime should then prepare for the worst - including drafting a will and making funeral and property arrangements with family and friends. (Read more)

- Father, this is a common sense statement. We ask that people- particularly students- who end up on tourism to North Korea be granted Your wisdom. For if they do not go in Your Perfect Will, they step into extreme danger.

- " . . .that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2b)

Did he or didn't he?


The airwaves, cyberspace and print media have been ablaze with repetitions of stories about President Donald Trump calling certain nations a derogatory name and implying that he is racist. The President has denied both making the remark and that he is a racist. Notwithstanding, the cattle are out of the barn on this story and they are stampeding as each person who has an account of what happened in the immigration meeting with lawmakers starts another string of stories discussing the President's "racism." The firestorm emanated from known leftist liar Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) who claimed the President made the remarks. Since then, the media does what it does best-repeat, but not confirm.

The New York Times reports that Durbin, of course, stands behind his statement, but stated that Senator David Perdue (R-GA) said Durbin made a "gross misrepresentation" of what the President said. Perdue and Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) at first said they didn't "recall the President saying these remarks specifically" but Sunday disputed Durbin's account outright. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was also at the meeting, said accounts of Trump's language was "basically accurate." Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) claims that people who were in the meeting told him that the President used inflammatory language. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, said she did not recall the President "saying that exact phrase."

Here we have the President denying his words. Two Senators who support the President saying they did not "recall" hearing him make the remarks, then changing their story to refute Durbin's "misrepresentation." You have two Republican Senators who generally oppose the President-Graham and Flake-saying that Durbin's account was basically accurate. And the Homeland Security Secretary, who is appointed by the President, not recalling the President saying that exact phrase. The only one emphatically denying the comments is the President. What he said and what was heard are in question. That question has grown into a full-blown episode where the narrative has been shaped to spell r-a-c-i-s-t.

In today's environment, being accused of racism and anything of a sexual nature are extreme hot buttons where no burden of proof is needed for the presumption of guilt. The media and every special interest group who oppose the President fan the flames of this fiery perception. It makes all who support the President subject to being painted with the same brush. It limits the President's ability to advance his agenda. This debate is far beyond what the President actually said. It's now about labeling him and his followers. This is why the President should be encouraged to choose his words as advised by Proverbs 10:19, "He that refrains his lips is wise."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Philippines raises volcano alert level after lava flow


The Philippines raised the alert level at its rumbling Mayon volcano to "level 3" on Sunday after detecting lava flow and indications of activity that could lead to eruptions of magma.

More than 900 families have been evacuated from villages near Mayon, a tourist attraction because of its near-perfect cone shape, following a "steam-driven eruption" on Saturday.

Authorities advised people to cover their noses and mouths with a damp, clean cloth or dust mask if they were exposed to ash from the eruptions, and said aircraft must avoid flying close to the volcano's summit. (Reuters) Read more

WATCH: Police Salute as 5-Year-Old Boy Shot at Texas Church Leaves Hospital in Firetruck


"He was shot 5 times once in the elbow, twice in the stomach, and twice in the leg. He is 5 years old with a big heart for his other siblings, friends, and family." -Heather Bradley, relative

In what turned out to be quite the emotional scene, police, first responders and citizens alike all crowded the streets to give a warm welcome home to 5-year-old Ryland Ward from the hospital. He was one of the few survivors of the awful Texas church shooting in Sutherland Springs, in which the boy lost his stepmother and two sisters.
Police lined the streets with their motorcycles as they awaited Ryan's arrival, and once he finally made his way by citizens cheered and waved, while the officers stood in full salute. It was quite the powerful scene, and the cameras eventually pan away as the firetruck leaves the crowd behind and heads off in the distance.
