The Daily Brief
1. Sandy Cuts Wide Swath of Damage - Wall Street Journal
Megastorm Sandy's march of destruction claimed at least 43 lives and left more than eight million people without electricity by late Tuesday, in one of the largest storms ever to strike the East Coast.
- Father in Heaven, we ask for mercy for those affected by this historic storm. We ask that You would provide food, shelter, heat, transportation, and medical care for these devastated people. We pray that they will look to You for the rebuilding of their lives and homes, as so many have been never dealt with this kind of storm before. Lord, raise up a strong witness among Your people to be a light in this part of the country.
-"Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved then out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands asunder." (Psalms 107:13,14)
2. Hurricane forces UN's New York office to remain closed - Daily News & Analysis
The United Nations has said the world body's headquarters in New York will remain closed for the third day on Wednesday "due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy". "Due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy, United Nations offices in New York will remain closed on Wednesday, 31 October 2012," Xinhua quoted the UN's announcement issued through an official e-mail. "All meetings at headquarters have been cancelled." Read more.
- In the past few days, our awesome and Almighty GOD has caused the activity of the power centers of our nation to CEASE, and all has come to a grinding halt. Wall Street, the United Nations, the federal government -- all have been told to "sit down" and be quiet. May each "player" in these realms of man's authority structures stop now and consider the fact that there is a Power greater than the power of all of these systems combined. May each one, in his helplessness, find the source of all life, Jesus Christ, our Lord and our King. He alone is our hope and our salvation.
- "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." (Psalm 46:10)
- Just last week, the UN called for a boycott of US companies friendly to Israel. Could this be the reason that our Abba God has moved in to shut down this whole operation?? May we NEVER be a curse unto Israel, but always a blessing, only!
- "I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Gen. 12:3)
3. Power Fail: White House Directs Storm Victims To The Internet? - Breitbart
The people in need of the most help today after the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy, are those living in a number of states along the East Coast that have lost power. And yet, at least according to Politico, while these people had the electricity necessary to get the information needed, neither the White House nor FEMA gave anyone instructions on where to turn for help or where to go for information in the event of a power outage. (Read more)
- We do not know if this oversight was due to a simple error or was caused by just plain stupidity. Either way, tonight millions are still stranded up and down the East Coast and are seeking help. Ask our Lord's angels to intervene where man has failed, and that each victim be somehow directed to sources of assistance, until each one can get back up on his own feet again.
- "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:19)
4. Quarter-billion-dollar stimulus grant creates just 400 jobs - Washington Times
Battery maker A123 Systems vowed thousands of new jobs when it received a nearly quarter-billion-dollar stimulus grant in late 2009, but federal job-tracking figures show only a few hundred positions were created before the company joined a growing list of federally backed energy businesses that ended in bankruptcy.
- Dear Lord, we are distressed at the wasted funds our government uses to make a show of creating jobs. We ask that this would stop and that the public would see through this using of our hard earned money to try to enrich the friends of those in charge and force their desires for control on the American people. Lord, help us by seeing to it that these arrogant people are replaced.
-"Thus says the Lord God: "Enough, O princes of Israel! Remove violence and plundering, execute justice and righteousness, and stop dispossessing my people," says the Lord God."" (Ezekiel 45:9) NKJV
5. Facebook Censors Navy Seals to Protect Obama on Benghazi-Gate - Breitbart
Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.
- Father God, in the strong name of Jesus, we come against the censorship of Facebook, which is unreasonable and shows their left-leaning bias. We further speak out that because of an outcry from their users that this will be restored permanently, as people desire the truth in this matter and are not getting it from liberal news sources. Thank You, Father, for bringing even more attention to this dereliction of duty by those in command. Thank You for our freedom of speech.
- "Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God." (I Peter 2:16) NASB
6. U.S. amphibious unit off Middle East - UPI
A U.S. Marine amphibious unit has reported for duty in the Persian Gulf area, the Corps announced Tuesday.
- Father in Heaven, we ask for protection for our troops, especially for those who are in the Persian Gulf, as it is a volatile area right now. We ask that You would give them unusual wisdom and supernatural intelligence about troop movements and the plans of the enemy who would harm them. In light of recent actions of the Commander and Chief, we ask that they would be covered and protected adequately as they carry out their assignments.
- "The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety." (Psalms 18:2) NLT

The Daily Jot: Special Report
Special Report: Benghazi may be the end of this presidency
Irrespective of the outcome of the November 6 election, the Occupant of the Oval Office will be embroiled in the September 11 Benghazi murders of the US Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. This single event, if prosecuted by the appropriate authorities, has the sway to end this Administration, render it ineffective, and cripple it for the entire four years if it remains in office. If it does not remain in office, there likely could be ongoing criminal and civil proceedings linking this presidency to a myriad of charges of cover ups, international intrigue, aiding terrorist organizations, conspiracy, high crimes and misdemeanors, perhaps even treason.
The president said that he takes full responsibility for the events in Benghazi. He has also said that he is offended by those who would suggest that he or his administration "would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own." There is no doubt that this administration, specifically the president, misled the American people regarding the events of Benghazi. From September 11 through September 25, the president and his Administration maintained that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration gone violent in response to an anti-Islam movie. Consulate emails to the White House 121 minutes after the attack began indicated a terrorist group claimed credit.
An October 26 Fox News report said that CIA sources told reporter Jennifer Griffin that there was far more than a cover up. Griffin reports there were three separate requests for outside military assistance to help the Ambassador during the attack radioed to "higher headquarters." Each time, the CIA agents were told to "Stand Down." Ignoring the orders, Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods went to the Consulate to help. They did not find the Ambassador, but helped others. Upon return to the CIA Annex, they came under heavy fire and continued requests for help were subsequently denied. Doherty and Woods were killed by a mortar that was laser tagged as a target for help that never came.
The Fox report also stated that two surveillance drones sent real time videos of the attack to the White House situation room, the CIA and the FBI. Larry Bell of Forbes reports: "Just one hour after the seven-hour-long terrorist attacks upon the US consulate in Benghazi began, our commander-in-chief, vice president, secretary of defense and their national security team gathered together in the Oval Office listening to phone calls from American defenders desperately under siege and watching real-time video of developments from a drone circling over the site." Former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News that "They stood, and they watched, and our people died."
In true campaign form, the Administration denied the reports and offered no further comment other than the incident is under investigation and the people responsible will be brought to justice. At this point, who can trust the Administration to investigate? John 3:20 says, "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." There needs to be an independent body to investigate. The president himself should be brought to justice for misleading the people and ordering those who could help to stand down. Libya holds intrigue with this president. He worked with the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda to overthrow its government. He refused to report to Congress the extent of operations in Libya. Now there is this suspicious murder and cover up.
Ephesians 5:11-16 gives us advice for these times: "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and the Messiah shall give thee light. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." This should be food for thought as the election approaches.

6 Days Until Election Day
Absentee ballots may have been destroyed in crash
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Federal officials say that absentee ballots being sent to U.S. military serving in Afghanistan may have been burned in a plane crash.
A top official in the Federal Voting Assistance Program this week notified election officials across the nation that a transport plane crashed at Shindad Air Base on Oct. 19.
The crash resulted in the destruction of 4,700 pounds of mail inbound to troops serving in the area.
Federal officials in their email to state election offices said they did not know if any ballots were destroyed. They also said the lost mail was limited to one zip code.
But they recommended that election officials resend a new ballot to anyone who requested one since the first ballot may have been destroyed in the crash and fire.
- Pray that these ballots reach our troops in time for their votes to count!- "For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers . . ." (I Peter 3:12)
Massive shift in political parties since Obama elected
Gallup: Massive swing to GOP since 2008
Obama destroys number of Democrats in 4 years
In the four years since Barack Obama has been president, American voters have been fleeing the Democratic Party in large numbers to become Republicans, according to brand-new figures released by the Gallup polling agency. "The largest changes in the composition of the electorate compared with the last presidential election concern the partisan affiliation of voters," says Gallup.
Based on surveys from Oct. 1 through 24, the pollster finds 36 percent of likely voters call themselves Republicans, compared to 35 percent who are Democrats. If those who are leaning toward a certain party are included, the GOP lead increases to 3 percent, standing at 49 to 46 percent.
But it was a much different story for Democrats in 2008, when they had 54 percent of people who identified themselves as Democrats or leaned Democratic. "In 2008, Democrats enjoyed a wide 12-point advantage in party affiliation among national adults, the largest Gallup had seen in at least two decades," Gallup said. (WorldNetDaily) Read more.
Remember Rahm Emanuel's famous quote early in the Obama administration, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste"? "Hurricane" Obama and his allies are hoping that Hurricane Sandy will blow away a surging Romney campaign too.
The New York Times this week ran an editorial that unapologetically used the destruction caused by Sandy to make the case for big government. The liberal media and Democrat operatives are playing politics by suggesting that Mitt Romney wants to gut FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. That is a lie.
Governor Romney has argued that governors and mayors, not Washington bureaucrats, best know the needs of their states and communities. The only decision a president makes is whether a state should be declared a disaster area. Most presidents are very liberal in the use of that designation.
In recent days, the White House political machine has worked overtime to show Obama was in charge. The White House said that President Obama was repeatedly awakened throughout the night so he could be briefed on Hurricane Sandy. Why? There were no decisions for him to make. But the president's handlers wanted to paint the picture of "Obama in charge" just days before the election. The administration even released a photo of President Obama presiding over a disaster relief briefing from the White House Situation Room. (Where's the photo for Benghazi?)
And when Obama made his first statements about the disaster, he used the phrase "lean forward." Where have I heard that before? It's Obama's campaign slogan, which he borrowed from MSNBC!
Obama also said that he had instructed federal agencies to "to cut through red tape, cut through bureaucracy. There is no excuse for inaction at this point." That he felt it necessary to make such a statement only proves Governor Romney's point about sending the money and authority back to the states.
But here was the most jarring of Obama's remarks yesterday at the Red Cross:
"This is a tough time for a lot of people -- millions of folks all across the Eastern Seaboard. But America is tougher, and we're tougher because we pull together. We leave nobody behind. We make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an American is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary."
In the Benghazi crisis, only Obama, as the commander-in-chief, could have authorized the military force necessary to save and rescue our ambassador and the other personnel who were under attack for hours. He did not. In spite of Obama's boasts, he decided to leave behind Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods to the jihadists who murdered them. (Gary Bauer)
Oct. 31: A DAY LIKE NO OTHER
A DAY LIKE NO OTHER - THEN COMES FREEDOM
[A prophetic word . . . based upon historical research.]
Because 31st October is 95 years since the ANZAC forces (Australia & New Zealand Army Corp) saw Be'ersheba in Israel freed from 400 years (to the day) of Turkish Ottoman rule. (The Turks took over on the 31st Oct 1517) I started to do a bit of research and the Lord started to speak to me about the significance of the hour. Actually the date 31st Oct.
It was on the 31st Oct 1517 that Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses to the door of the Church in Guttenberg to bring freedom. So it's now 495 years since that event.
It was on the 31st Oct 1904 that Evan Roberts returned to his home Church in Loughor. His purpose was to attend a series of meetings to awaken people to Christ. Within two weeks large parts of Wales were in revival.
Quite by chance I discovered that 95 on the Table of essential Elements is Am - Americium and I thought OK that's US-America. I heard the Lord speak clearly, He said: "The God of New York has been silenced (The Stock Exchange) and the underground has been halted.(The enemies Kingdom). Now let the God of Israel be seen because there is an exchange of wealth and a release of the Kingdom of heaven on earth."For those who have ears let them hear. 31st October is an exchange of Kingdom authority and a new season of release. Don't fear; call out to HIM... nothing will ever be the same.
For the USA I hear; "even in the face of the storm, don't be afraid but call on the name of the Lord". There is another 31st Oct event coming that will explode into a huge move of God and a transfer of wealth from the enemies' camp and into the Kingdom of God.
The current Storm is a signal of the transfer of Kingdoms. It just so happens it's also the 95th Storm with Barometric pressure lower than 960 to hit the East Coast of USA since 1948 when Israel became a nation. There's that number again, 95.
My friends in the USA have told me that they are feeling the breeze of a fresh move. Hold steady my friends because the storm will try to blow you off course. The Atmosphere in the East Coast of the USA currently is quite unlike anything ever experienced. That because there is an exchange of Kingdoms occurring. In the same way the ANZAC's faced impossible odds in 1917 and Martin Luther in 1517 also Evan Roberts in 1904 but then came the start of a move of freedom; so too this October 31st 2012 is a day to mark the turning point in the USA. Don't look at the circumstances hear what the Spirit is saying in the midst of the storm.

France: 75 Flash Mobs Defend Marriage
In many towns, hundreds gathered to defend traditional marriage: 600 in Lyons, 400 in Rennes, 400 in Bordeaux, 200 in Toulouse and at least 1,500 in Paris.
(Paris, France)-The first nationwide public demonstration against the French socialist government's plan to legalize homosexual "marriage" took place on Wednesday, October 24, simultaneously in 75 French towns.
On the busy main square of Paris business and shopping center "La Défense," where this author witnessed the event, most of the lookers-on seemed interested and even sympathetic to the message. Young people handing out leaflets in favor of natural marriage said at least 80% of people they spoke with reacted positively.
In many towns, hundreds gathered to spread the message: 600 in Lyons, 400 in Rennes, as many in Bordeaux, 200 in Toulouse. At least 1,500 joined the event in Paris, where "Alliance Vita's" leaders addressed the crowd.
"To tell a child it has two daddies or two mommies is telling a lie. You should never lie to a child," said Tugdual Derville, the movement's general delegate.
"Children have a right to know their origins, they have a right to a daddy and a mommy and not respecting that when they are already hurt through being orphans is just adding further mistreatment," he said.
François Hollande promised while campaigning for president that he would make homosexual "marriage" and adoption legal; the draft law, which will be presented on November 7th, includes these two new "rights" but stops short of giving homosexual couples access to artificial procreation and surrogate motherhood.
