"So He brought His people out with joy, His chosen ones with singing. And He gave them the lands of the nations, and they took possession of the fruit of the peoples' toil, that they might keep His statutes and observe His laws. Praise the LORD!" (Psalm 105:43-45)

The Daily Brief
1. Pelosi to Retain House Leadership Role because of Her Fundraising Not Her Politics - Last Resistance
After last week's sound defeat there has been a growing amount of dissatisfaction among Democrats for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Part of the behind the scenes grumblings about Pelosi was her post-election tirade that blamed Democratic voters for the loss. She said the Republican victory had nothing to do with the Democratic politicians like herself or their policies. Pelosi blames the voters for not getting out to vote and not getting others to get out and vote. (Read more)
- Lord God, we know that, even beyond the vote, it is You, Holy One, who sets up kings and deposes them. For Your reasons, You have ordained that Ms. Pelosi remain in the next session of Congress. We ask that this would be the year that her heart would be softened towards Your truth, and that the fruit that remains would bear witness that she has truly received You as her Savior and as her Lord. We ask this in Jesus' name, amen and amen.
- "You will know them by their fruits." (Matthew 7:16)
2. Dems unlikely to ram through Obama's attorney general pick - The Hill
President Obama will have to get his nominee for attorney general past a Republican-controlled Senate, Democratic and Republican aides say.
A packed schedule after the election is almost certain to push the vetting process for Loretta Lynch into January, when Republicans are set to take power in the upper chamber. "It seems likely [the Lynch vote] would be in the next Congress. It's difficult to process an [attorney general] that quickly," said a Democratic aide.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has not yet made a decision on whether to move Lynch's nomination in the lame-duck session, according to spokesman Adam Jentleson.
But aides say the time crunch and growing GOP opposition to Lynch make it exceedingly unlikely that the replacement for Eric Holder will be confirmed in December.
That means the task of approving a new attorney general - a position that is a lightning rod for controversy - will fall to the new Republican majority of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
"Ms. Lynch will receive fair consideration by the Senate. And her nomination should be considered in the new Congress through regular order," McConnell said in a statement. (Read more)
- Lord God in heaven, we rejoice at this great news today! We thank You that a balanced U.S. Senate, when sworn into office next year, will take charge of the confirmation process to choose our next Attorney General. Thank You, Lord, for this glorious report! In Jesus' name, amen and amen.
- "When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. . . ." (Proverbs 29:2 NLT)
3. US Postal Service employee information hacked - BBC
The US Postal Service has said it was a victim of a cyber attack that may have compromised the personal information of its employees and some customers. The agency employs more than 600,000 workers but has not specified how many people were affected. Customers who used local post offices or the USPS website were not affected, but those who used its call centre may have had their information stolen. (Read more)
- Abba Father, computer hacks from many nations are trying to steal our personal information. Lord, the article points towards China, a nation who has wronged the poor and needy and oppressed many. Lord, we ask for Your protection for all of our computer systems by hackers from all nations. Lord send in Your angels to protect our systems. In His name, we pray. Amen - "The people of the land have practiced oppression and committed robbery, and they have wronged the poor and needy and have oppressed the sojourner without justice." (Ezekiel 22:29) "For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways." (Psalm 91:11)
4. Obama Refuses to Give Up his Dictatorship - Canada Free Press
Obama does not plan to compromise on anything, Instead, Obama expects the Republicans who won in a real nationwide landslide to do what he tells them to do. First and foremost, let me disabuse both Marxist Democrats and RINOs of the notion that the Republicans were elected so that they could compromise and get along with the Dems to enact legislation. That is NOT what occurred 4 November 2014. (Read more)
- Abba Father, There is nothing that is happening that is surprising to You. You are Lord of heaven and You are Lord of the earth. Lord, speak to all who have been elected in this past election and to those that remain in office from past elections that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In His Name, Amen
- Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, "Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!"
He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury, saying, "But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain." (Psalm 2:1-6)
5. Former Counterterror Adviser: Attack on Grid Could Leave Part of U.S. in Dark for Months - CNSNews.com
Former White House Counterterrorism Adviser Richard Clarke on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopolous" on Sunday warned that terrorists could gain the capability to attack the U.S. power grid, potentially knocking out power to part of the country for months. "The real worry is that eventually, non-state actors, maybe even terrorist groups, will gain this capability," Clarke said. (Read more)
- Abba Father we trust in You. You are our refuge and our fortress. Lord be a fortress around our country that the enemy cannot come in to steal. Abba, we ask that You would give wisdom to our intelligence sector that no one lone wolf would be able to attack any part of our country including our power grids. Give them ears that hear and eyes that see what is coming against us. In His name we pray, Amen.
- "I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!" For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence." (Psalm 91:2-3)
6. Earthquake swarm may increase risk of the big one - MyNews4.com
RENO, Nev. -- An earthquake swarm about 40 miles southeast of Lakeview, Oregon is increasing in activity and intensity. While the seismic activity is happening in a secluded area centered off Nevada's northwest border, scientists are watching it closely. "It has been going for about five months now and it kind of goes in fits and spurts," said Dr. Graham Kent.(Read more)

7. Russia, Iran sign nuclear construction deal - Jerusalem Post
Russia will build two new nuclear power plant units in Iran under an agreement signed in Moscow on Tuesday. The agreement precedes a November 24 deadline for a deal at talks between Iran and world powers that would curb Tehran's nuclear program, which the West says may be aimed at building atomic weapons but Iran says is for peaceful purposes. (Read more)
- Lord God, we are grieved when we read this news, as Russia is arming the enemy of Israel by building these two nuclear power plants in Iran. We ask that this deal would somehow fall through, without harm to life or limb, for truly those who curse Israel shall be cursed. We curse this deal with the authority of Your spoken Word, in Jesus' name, amen.
- "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse . . ." (Gen. 12:3a)
8. 'Knife Intifada' Incited to 'Clean Jerusalem of Jews' - CBN News
On Tuesday, two Palestinians apparently took the message to heart and murdered two Israelis. Following two separate stabbing attacks Monday, Palestinians tweeted, "The knife intifada has begun."
One terrorist stabbed a 20-year-old soldier to death at a Tel Aviv bus stop in the afternoon. A few hours later, another terrorist stabbed a 26-year-old woman to death at the same bus stop where three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists in June.
It's the latest in a series of terror attacks using everyday items like cars and knives to murder Israelis. Israel says the P.A. is inciting Palestinian Arabs to terrorism.
"The main thing is racist incitement carried out especially by Abu Mazen himself and his advisors, officials. This incitement calls for the use of all means, as they call it, in order to make sure Jerusalem, and especially the Temple Mount, is clean from Jews.," Brig.-Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, director general of Israel's Strategic Affairs Ministry, told CBN News.
"We, the Hamas movement, applaud this operation and encourage anyone who can carry out more [such operations]," Hamad told his interviewer. "Even he who owns nothing but his faith has a kitchen in his house in which he has a knife. He must grab his knife and confront the Zionist enemy," he continued. "Another one owns no weapon, but does own a car, he must push down on the gas pedal in order to take a revenge of the settlers who corrupt the land and defile the al-Aqsa Mosque," he said.
. . . The Israeli government said it will defer to the Muslims and maintain the status quo there. For now that means only Muslims are allowed to pray on the coveted plateau. IsraeIis, in the meantime, are dealing with the possibility of terror attacks any place, anytime. (Read more)
- Lord God, on this, the week of the anniversary of Kristallnacht - "The Night of Long Knives" - which marked the beginning of the Holocaust in Germany, we see the word "knives" being thrust before the Jews in Israel with an agenda of hate. Lord God, only You can intervene to quell this uprising, so we now turn to You for help. Help us, Lord, and help the Jews in Israel to know how to respond and how to protect themselves. Holy, Holy God, we turn to You. In Jesus' name, amen and amen.

3. Police urge Jewish drivers to stay out of Arab villages -Times of Israel
As violent protests raged across the country for a fourth consecutive day, the Israel Police issued a statement to Jewish drivers Tuesday urging them not to pass through the Galilean villages of Kafr Kanna and Turan, as well as other Arab Israeli communities in the lower Galilee.
The police recommendation came several hours after an Israeli man suffered minor injuries when his car was struck by a rock near Turan, and amid riots which have erupted sporadically in Kafr Kanna in the wake of the shooting death late Friday of 22-year-old Kheir Hamdan by police. Hamdan had attacked a police cruiser with a knife but was shot while he apparently attempted to flee the scene. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, we pray for these Palestinians. Father, forgive them, the don't know what they are doing. They have been taught their whole lives to hate Israel and hate the Jewish people. We ask that You will move on their hearts and show them Your presence. Let them feel Your power and convict their hearts. We pray for their salvation and for them to repent of what they have done. We know it is not Your will for any to perish. In the name of Yeshuah, amen.

6. Iraqi Shiite militias grow brutal in anti-IS fight - AP
The vengeance that Iraq's Shiite militias mete out as they fight the Islamic State group can be just as brutal as that of their sworn sectarian enemies. In a grisly video recently posted online, a Shiite fighter shouts the name of a revered imam in victory as he poses beside decapitated bodies. Another militiaman sits nearby, grinning as he maims a corpse.
The Shiite militias who have answered the call-to-arms by the government to fight the Islamic State group are growing more brutal, stoked by a desire for revenge against the Sunni extremists who have butchered Shiites who fall into their hands. (Read more)

Iraqi soldiers battling the Islamic State group recaptured the heart of the town of Beiji, home to the country's largest oil refinery, state television and a military official said Tuesday.
Retaking Beiji, 250 kilometers (155 miles) north of Baghdad, could allow Iraqi forces a base to attack neighboring Tikrit, taken by the extremists after their lightning advance this summer. It also represents a morale boost for Iraq's beleaguered security forces, which saw many of its troop flee the militant offensive. (Read more)
Good News in Ferguson!
Missouri and Ferguson Christians Experience Miraculous Breakthroughs;
Issue Urgent National Call to Fast and Pray
I believe this crisis is a clear invitation to the Church to manifest the love of God but He is exposing our hearts. Jesus always deals with iniquity in us before He deals with inequity around us. Regardless of the facts and the outcome, every Believer has a major role to play in the healing of these wounds and peace in the nations. It's critical that we respond to the Lord now." -Jonathan Tremaine Thomas, Ferguson Response Director
(St. Louis, MO) - Christian churches, ministries, and individuals around the country recently joined together for 21 days in Ferguson, MO to exalt Jesus above the conflict in what was coined "The Ferguson Response." This coalition is urgently inviting Christians across the world to continue to fast and pray for the restraint of violence and for spiritual transformation in anticipation of the pending grand jury announcement concerning Officer Darren Wilson.
Ferguson Response Director Jonathan Tremaine Thomas says, "Both authorities and citizens in St. Louis are bracing for a potential eruption of violence not only here but possibly around the nation. Not everyone is prone to violence but various ideological groups have converged on the area and there is international presence. Some see it as a flashpoint for the advancement of anarchist agendas and have made serious threats but we see it as a flashpoint for revival. We have clearly seen the prevailing hand of God and know that He responds to His people when we fervently pray."
In October, a tent was erected in Ferguson where 8-10 hours of praise, worship, intercession, and evangelism occurred daily. Believers of every hue worked together to provide opportunities for residents to experience God. "There were miraculous healings and deliverances; a couple of major protests were turned into prayer meetings, a few violent situations were diffused through supernatural intervention, 50 people surrendered their lives to Jesus, and many more heard the Gospel," says Pastor Jeff Riddering. The tent expression ended on October 25th with a free community feast. An estimated 750 plates were served as guests enjoyed music, drama, dance, and other activities; including a panel discussion with the great granddaughter of Dred Scott and the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Although it was an incredibly powerful time, we've only just begun. I believe this crisis is a clear invitation to the Church to manifest the love of God but He is exposing our hearts. Jesus always deals with iniquity in us before He deals with inequity around us. Regardless of the facts and the outcome, every Believer has a major role to play in the healing of these wounds and peace in the nations. It's critical that we respond to the Lord now," says Minister Thomas.

Tennessee Pro-Life Amendment Passes
Passed! Tennessee's New Pro-Life Amendment
Will Help It Overcome Status as Abortion Destination
"Despite millions of abortion dollars flooding our airwaves with deceptive ads, the people of Tennessee saw through the falsehoods and made their voices heard."
Bolstered by a grassroots pro-life effort, Tennessee voters passed a constitutional amendment in Tuesday's election that will allow the state to better protect its pregnant mothers and cease it from being the third-largest out-of-state abortion destination in the nation.
Amendment 1 passed with the support of nearly 53 percent of the state's electorate despite supporters being outspent by abortion proponents by more than two to one, according to the Yes on Amendment 1 campaign's webpage.
"We are grateful to God and to the good people of Tennessee for this victory," Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life and a coordinator for Yes on 1, said in a statement provided to LifeSiteNews. "Despite millions of abortion dollars flooding our airwaves with deceptive ads, the people of Tennessee saw through the falsehoods and made their voices heard."
The Yes on 1 campaign raised and spent $1.5 million in contrast to at least $4 million reported by Planned Parenthood's "NO" campaign, Harris said, and 16 abortion facilities in Tennessee and across the country contributed a total of $3.5 million in a combined effort to defeat the pro-life amendment.

U.S. justice temporarily blocks gay marriage in Kansas
U.S. justice temporarily blocks gay marriage in Kansas - Reuters
WASHINGTON - A U.S. Supreme justice on Monday temporarily blocked gay marriage in Kansas a day before it was due to go into effect. Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued an order saying that the court wanted gay marriage advocates to respond to the state's application seeking to put gay marriage on hold. U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Crabtree struck down the state's gay marriage ban last week, ruling that it would go into effect on Tuesday at 6 p.m. Eastern Time (2300 GMT) if no other court intervened. Sotomayor's action does not mean the high court will grant the Kansas application. (Read more)
Sotomayor Issues Order Temporarily Blocking Gay Marriage In Kansas - Associated Press
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has issued an order temporarily blocking gay marriage in Kansas. Sotomayor's brief order Monday puts on hold indefinitely a lower-court order clearing the way for same-sex couples to marry despite a ban in Kansas on gay marriage. The lower-court order was set to take effect at 5 p.m. Central time Tuesday. Sotomayor acted at the request of Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
But Sotomayor also directed the American Civil Liberties Union to file a response to Schmidt's request by 4 p.m. Central time Tuesday. The ACLU filed a federal lawsuit last month for two lesbian couples challenging the state's gay-marriage ban. It resulted in the lower-court order. Equality Kansas Executive Director Tom Witt said Sotomayor could quickly reconsider once she receives the response. (Read more)
Sad News from National Cathedral (1)
Sad News from National Cathedral:
National Cathedral Offers Prayers To Allah
A Commentary by Gary Bauer
This Friday prayers to Allah will be echoing throughout the Washington National Cathedral as this historic venue hosts its first Muslim prayer service. Organizers of the event hope it will promote tolerance and dialogue -- as if America is lacking in tolerance and dialogue. Anyone have any ideas on how to promote tolerance in Mecca, Damascus or Gaza?
I couldn't help being struck by the irony of this news coupled with headlines around the world. While the most recognizable church in Washington, if not all of America, welcomes Muslims, radical Islamists blew up a church in Syria dedicated to memorializing the slaughter of nearly 1.5 million Armenian Christians. Yesterday in Nigeria scores of schoolchildren were blown up by people who will also be offering noon time prayers to Allah.
As Islam advances all over the world, it treats Christians as second class citizens while radical Islamists tell them to convert or die. It converts churches into mosques to make it clear which faith is dominate.
While the Washington National Cathedral is a national symbol, it is part of the Episcopal Church, which is confused about a great many things, including God's institution of marriage. So it's no wonder they are confused about how to handle the Islamic revival that is sweeping the Middle East and Africa, leaving dead Christians and Jews in its wake.
Rather than fretting about Islamophobia in America, perhaps the folks at the National Cathedral should redouble their efforts to defend fellow believers around the world from jihad.

First-Ever Moslem Prayer Service to be Held this Friday
Washington National Cathedral is hosting a Muslim prayer service for the first time on Friday
Planners say they hope Friday's service at the historic cathedral will foster more understanding and acceptance between Christians and Muslims around the world.
The prominent Episcopal cathedral often hosts national events, such as presidential funerals, and has hosted Muslims at various interfaith services in the past. But planners say this is the first time the cathedral has invited Muslims to lead their own prayers there, which they call a "powerful symbolic gesture." (NBC Wasington.com) Read more here.
- Lord God, we are grieved at this news, but we are not surprised. Over the years, our "nation's cathedral" has served as a veritable cesspool for every evil false god on the earth. We have seen Tibetan Buddhist monks chanting there; labyrinths set in place to create "mystical experiences" for worshippers; and other, strange, New Age practices coming out of the teachings of Edgar Cayce.
Now, God, it seems that the Moslems will take their turn next. We cover all words spoken by these heathen people on Friday in National Cathedral with the Shed Blood of the Lamb, and we ask You to forgive these poor, lost souls for their abominations, for they know not what they do. In Your Presence, every knee must bow. We ask for a cleansing move of the Spirit of the Most High God to sweep through National Cathedral, that it be fully and only Yours, Abba. We ask this in Jesus' name, amen and amen.

Air Force Changes Policy on Religious Speech:
A Major Result of Religious Freedom "Focus Day"
(Washington, DC) - On November 10, just in time for Veteran's Day, the United States Air Force changed its policy regarding religious speech and freedoms in its ranks.
The U.S. Air Force announced the change on their website saying:
Air Force officials approved Air Force Instruction 1-1, Air Force Standards, Nov. 7, to clarify guidance on Airmen's religious rights and commanders' authority and responsibility to protect those rights.
The changes come as a result of a Religious Freedom "Focus Day" earlier this year when leaders in the Air Force's chaplain corps came together to discuss Air Force policy regarding religious freedom as directed by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III.
At the Focus Day, chaplains discussed Air Force law and policy, the complaint process and how to educate and communicate with Airmen about their rights.
"We provide, or provide for, the free exercise of religion and we advocate its free exercise for every member of the Air Force and the joint environment and their families," said Maj. Gen. Howard D. Stendahl, the Air Force chief of chaplains. (Breaking Christian News) Read more here.

Massive Ocean Discovered Towards The Earth's Core!
A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth's surface. The finding may explain where Earth's seas came from, and lend some interesting evidence to the hollow earth theory.
The water is hidden inside a blue rock called ringwoodite that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth's surface and its core. The huge size of the reservoir throws new light on the origin of Earth's water. Many geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck the planet, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the oceans gradually oozed out of the interior of the early Earth.
"It's good evidence the Earth's water came from within," says Steven Jacobsen of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The hidden water could also act as a buffer for the oceans on the surface, explaining why they have stayed the same size for millions of years. [Source: Earth We Are One]
