1. Donald Trump: Jews Voting Democrat Show 'Total Lack of Knowledge or Great Disloyalty' - Breitbart

President Donald Trump criticized Democrats on Tuesday after Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested that the United States should cut aid to Israel after officials blocked her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country.

Trump indicated that the suggestion was ridiculous. "Five years ago, the concept of even talking about this - cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people - I can't believe we're even having this conversation," he said.

He condemned Democrats for defending Tlaib and Omar and their comments against Israel and the Jewish people."I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty," he said.

2. Terror assessment report warns of attack risk at planned Holocaust memorial - Jerusalem Post

A report released by a senior counter-terrorism expert has exposed serious risks in the Government's plans to build a Holocaust Center Victoria Tower Gardens. The report explains that the high-profile Jewish focused building would be a "high value" target for attacks because of its proximity both to Parliament and MI5, and because it lacks the same security measures [as] it would be a "softer target."

In the report, dubbed the Tudway Report, former detective chief superintendent Adrian Tudway, who was the Association of Chief Police Officers national co-coordinator for domestic extremism, has said that the proposal to site the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Center within Victoria Tower Gardens would create a "perfect storm" of terrorism risks.

"The adjacent Parliamentary estate is protected by armed police patrols and significant security measures; Victoria Tower Gardens is not and will not be," Tudway explains in the report. "This makes Victoria Tower Gardens a softer target for extremists than the Parliamentary estate or the Security Service building to the immediate South of Victoria Tower Gardens."

3. US and Israel sign agreement to strengthen partnership - JNS

The United States and Israel signed a memorandum of understanding on Wednesday to strengthen the alliance between the two countries.

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) administrator Mark Green and Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz signed the global partnership agreement in Jerusalem to enable "the American and Israeli private sectors to help increase employment opportunities and build resilient communities" and further "development cooperation in water, education, technology, science, agriculture, cyber-security and humanitarian assistance," according to USAID.

"Today's occasion is an opportunity to celebrate this bond, which has driven all dimensions of our bilateral relationship. It is also an opportunity to renew and deepen our friendship through even closer collaboration, friendship in action, shared values in operation," said Green in a speech. "It's only natural that our two development agencies work together. After all, we very much share the same vision."

- Israel National News

IDF fighter jets attacked a number of terror targets at a Hamas naval facility in the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday night. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said the attack was carried out in retaliation to the rocket fire on southern Israel earlier in the evening.

"The IDF will continue to act against attempts to harm Israeli civilians and considers the Hamas terrorist organization responsible for what is happening in and out of the Gaza Strip," it said.

Shortly after the Israeli air strike, another rocket was identified as having been launched from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said that as a result of the fire, an alert was activated only in the open area.

1. Trump cancels visit with Denmark PM after she rebuffs 'absurd' idea of US buying Greenland - FoxNews

President Trump on Tuesday abruptly canceled a planned meeting with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, saying there was no point to the trip after Frederiksen called the idea that the U.S. might buy Greenland from Denmark "absurd" -- and insisted there would be no Copen-haggling about it.

Trump had been expected to visit Denmark on Sept. 2-3 as part of his trip to Europe. "Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time," Trump wrote.

"The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct," he added. "I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!" The White House later clarified that the entire trip to Denmark had been scrapped, including a planned meeting with the Queen of Denmark. (Read more)

- Father, we pray our leaders will come together and do what is best for the people of Denmark, of the United States, and of Greenland.

- He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (Psalm 98:3)


2. U.S. 'ready' to conclude talks with Taliban - OANN

On Tuesday, a top U.S. negotiator for the Afghan region said he's returning to the Qatari capitol of Doha Wednesday to finish what he hopes is the last round of discussions with the Taliban. Currently, about 14,000 U.S. troops are stationed in Afghanistan. However, the current peace plan seeks to drop that number by about 5,000 in exchange for the Taliban cutting ties with Al-Qaeda.

President Trump, who has long been a critic of the Afghan war, told reporters this week he believes the talks with the Taliban are going well. The War in Afghanistan has been raging for nearly 18-years, making it the longest war in U.S. history. In the past decade, over 32,000 people have died as a result of the conflict.

Critics are concerned that many militants associated with the Taliban may join the local ISIS sector rather than abide by the peace plan. However, President Trump said he plans on having intelligence keep an eye on the Taliban even if U.S. troops pull out. (Read more)

- Father God, we pray for an end to this war in Afghanistan and for the people there to experience Your Peace.

- 'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (Revelation 21:4)


3. India Weighing Preemptive Nuclear Strike In Response to Kashmir - Breitbart

Nuclear-armed China, its ally Pakistan, and their fellow nuclear power India all have competing claims to territories in the volatile Himalayan region of Kashmir. Despite a 2003 ceasefire between Pakistan and India, the two countries clash along their Kashmir border almost daily.

India's recently declared commitment to its nuclear doctrine of 'No First Use' would be contingent upon the developing circumstances in its Muslim-majority Kashmir dispute with China and Pakistan. The declaration came days after Beijing, through its state-run Global Times, cautioned of a potential nuclear war over its Kashmir moves.

Nuclear war threats came after India revoked Indian Kashmir's limited autonomy and broke the region, including a portion administered by China, into two federally controlled territories, angering Beijing. [China] deemed India's move in Kashmir a violation of its sovereignty despite denials by an Indian official who claimed New Delhi is not seeking to annex additional Chinese Kashmir. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray for the intervention of Your Church over this crisis. Help us know how to pray. Magnify the influence and efforts of those who are believers in this region.

- You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. (Matthew 24:6)


4. Graham Will Advise AG Barr On Rollout Of Russia Trump Docs. They Must Be Made Public. - SaraACarter

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told Fox News' Sean Hannity Tuesday, he will meet with Department of Justice Attorney General William Barr this week to advise on the public rollout of classified documents pertaining to the FBI's investigation into President Trump and Russia.

The documents, which President Trump gave Barr full authority to declassify, were turned over earlier this year but have still not been made public. Those documents include the redacted sections of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications on former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, the Gang of Eight classified binder briefing documents pertaining to the investigation, FBI interviews with former British spy Christopher Steele, as well as a slew of other documents.

Graham noted that Americans deserve to know the truth about the now debunked FBI investigation into Trump Russia collusion and the extent of which it was politicized by former senior officials within the Obama Administration. Graham has also promised that his committee will do an extensive investigation of alleged abuses by those officials. "I don't want people to conjecture as to what happened. I want you to read it," said Graham. (Read more)

- Father, we pray all these documents will come out in Your timing. Help the American people understand the full implications of what has been done and unite to prevent this corruption from ever happening again.

- Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)


5. Trump Has Right to End DACA, Justice Dept. Tells Supreme Court - New York Times

The government's brief, filed late Monday, is one of the biggest legal tests of the president's immigration agenda. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments about the fate of the DACA program in November. The justices could decide the case next spring or summer, just as the presidential election campaign is in full swing.

President Barack Obama created DACA in 2012 through executive action after Congress refused to pass legislation to grant young immigrants permanent legal status. As a presidential candidate, Mr. Trump argued that Mr. Obama's actions were an abuse of power and repeatedly called for the program to end.

In September 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that Mr. Trump was terminating the program because the Supreme Court had found a related program for the parents of Dreamers to be unconstitutional. A federal judge blocked the administration from ending the DACA program and an appeals court upheld that action. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for a fair legislative solution for the millions of illegal immigrants who are currently part of the DACA program.

- One and the same law applies to everyone who sins unintentionally, whether a native-born Israelite or a foreigner residing among you. (Numbers 15:29)


6. Trump Administration Announces Rule to Enable Detaining Immigrant Families Indefinitely - Epoch Times

The Trump administration announced on Aug. 21 a new rule that replaces the Flores agreement, which has long guided how long immigrant families who cross the border illegally into the United States can be held.

The rule "will allow for termination of" the agreement, the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement, allowing the department and the Health and Human Services agency "to respond to significant statutory and operational changes that have occurred since the [Flores agreement] has been in place, including dramatic increases in the numbers of unaccompanied children and family units crossing into the United States."

"Seeking termination of the [Flores agreement is an important step] towards an immigration system that is humane and operates consistently with the intent of Congress," the statement added. The new rule will change the way U.S. agencies care for alien children, both those who arrive with family members and those who arrive unaccompanied. It includes removing the time limit for holding families. (Read more)

- Father God, we pray the Trump Administration will be able to move forward with this rule change and quickly deport those who do not have permission to be here.

- When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, people's hearts are filled with schemes to do wrong. (Ecclesiastes 8:11)


7. Watchdog alerts Trump that border agency violated DNA collection law for years, letting violent criminals walk free - FoxNews

A top government watchdog on Wednesday alerted President Trump and Congress that Customs and Border Protection (CBP), through a "disturbing" pattern of misconduct, has endangered the public for nearly a decade by failing to comply with a federal law requiring that the agency collect DNA samples from detained migrants.

In a scathing letter to Trump, exclusively obtained by Fox News, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) said CBP's "noncompliance with the law has allowed subjects subsequently accused of violent crimes, including homicide and sexual assault, to elude detection even when detained multiple times by CBP or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)."

The OSC told the White House that it was taking the "strongest possible step" to "rebuke the agency's failure to comply with the law," as well as its "unreasonable" attempts to defend its own conduct. Under the law, CBP was required to collect DNA from individuals in its custody, to be run against FBI violent-crimes databases.

- Father, we pray all officials who contributed to this systemic failure will be held fully accountable.

- Remove wicked officials from the king's presence, and his throne will be established through righteousness. (Proverbs 25:5)


8. Constitution Party Gets Fraud-Laced Voting System Thrown Out, State May Have to Return to Paper Ballots; State Officials Were "Not Credible" - Restoring Liberty

Thursday Judge Amy Totenberg of the U.S. District Court of North Georgia banned the current Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems from further use in Georgia elections beginning in 2020. The DRE system produces results that cannot be verified by the voter, audited by election officials or recounted for candidates. The court found the system impairs Georgia voters' Constitutional right to vote in any federal election.

Judge Totenberg's ruling requires the state to implement a backup plan of hand marked paper ballots if the system replacing the current DRE system is not ready for the March Presidential Primary.

The ruling Thursday came as no surprise to those who attended a July hearing that revealed the state had concealed key internet exposures and vulnerabilities from the court. Totenberg's comments cited "inconsistent candor" by the defendants in "denial and dodging" of the "broad scale vulnerability" involving the 2017 internet breach of the election servers at Kennesaw State. She concluded: "the Defendants' contention that the servers were - not intentionally destroyed or wiped is flatly not credible." (Read more)

- Father, thank You for this decision for voter integrity in Georgia. We pray similar systems in other states will also be challenged successfully.

- A wise man scales the city of the mighty and brings down the stronghold in which they trust. (Proverbs 21:22)


9. Planned Parenthood Refuses to Protect Life - Liberty Council

Planned Parenthood has refused to comply with President Trump's Protect Life Rule and officially withdrew yesterday from the Title X Family Planning Program. This withdrawal follows a letter that Planned Parenthood's lawyers sent to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals last week indicating that it would withdraw barring emergency judicial relief. The Ninth Circuit declined to hear Planned Parenthood's request for an emergency injunction.

The Trump administration's rule ensures compliance with the statutory prohibition against using federal funds for programs where abortion is a method of family planning, which means the defunding of Planned Parenthood by as much as $60 million in Title X funds annually. It does not reduce Title X funds; it redirects them to providers that do not perform or promote abortions.

Title X funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services. While the tax money cannot be used to pay for abortions, it has indirectly funded Planned Parenthood's vast abortion business. (Read more)

- Father, we pray all public funding for Planned Parenthood and clinics that perform abortion will be completely and permanently cut off.

- For the upright will live in the land, and the blameless will remain in it; but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.
(Proverbs 2:21-22)


10. Piers Morgan: Populism Is Rising Because Liberals Have Become Unbearable - RealClearPolitics

Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it is a massive problem. What's the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don't allow anyone else to have a different view?

Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture. They're fed up with snowflakery, they're fed up with people being offended by everything and they're gravitating towards forceful personalities who go: "This is all nonsense!"

I understand why the liberals, my side, if you like, are getting it so horribly wrong. They just wanna tell people, not just how to lead their lives, but if you don't lead it the way I tell you to it's a kind of version of fascism. If you don't lead the life the way I'm telling you to then I'm going to ruin your life. (Read more)

- Father, we pray these words from Piers Morgan will influence liberals to break away from toxic leftist ideologies. Set them free.

- The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6)


The Daily Jot

Liz and Bernie's blasphemy

Wednesday, August 21, 2019


Democratic presidential hopefuls socialist Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (VT) are walking the thin line of blasphemy by saying that the Bible supports socialism. According to the Daily Caller, Sanders and Warren are campaigning to win the "Christian" vote by quoting scripture in support of their socialist agendas. The Daily Caller reports, "The two presidential candidates addressed a group of black Christian millennials Saturday at a Black Church PAC's Youth Leadership Conference in Atlanta. Both referenced the Bible to support their progressive agendas as they campaigned to the faithful." Sanders says the Bible "is about justice" and "standing up to the wealthy and powerful."

Warren quoted a watered-down version of Matthew 25:35. According to the Daily Caller, she said, "for I was hungry, and you gave me meat ... I was a stranger and you took me in," and then spoke about the need to increase taxes on the "bazillionaires," gun control, eliminating student debt and doing away with private healthcare. She said, "These plans show my values," as if they were those of Christ's. Let me be very clear: The Bible is the story of the gift of salvation. It is given freely to those who accept-whether Jew or Gentile, rich or poor, free or slave. The justice is God's justice-not man's brand of "get even" justice. God's law is to be written on the hearts of those who accept Christ, meaning that disciples of Christ want to follow the laws and are not compelled or forced to follow them. As God's people, we are not forced to administer justice or compassion, we do it freely and cheerfully.

Socialists use the Bible toclaim God instituted socialism based on Acts 4:32, "And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common." The difference here is that the early disciples of Christ in Acts voluntarily out of the love of their hearts gave one to another. In Socialism and Communism, government becomes god and distribution of personal property by the state is compulsory. Chapter II. Proletarians and Communists of the Communist Manifesto says, "But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience."

Warren's and Sanders' use of the Bible to justify the force of socialism borders blasphemy. Theypromise everything to those who have nothing; they cause class and economic warfare, plying unwitting minds with words like equality, peace, open borders, and fairness. Christians need not be so ignorant to believe such deceivers. There is no common ground with the Bible and the many brands of socialism and communism. In Nicaragua in 2009 there were billboards with thewords "Christiano, Socialista, Solidario." They promoted themarriage of Christianity and socialism to convince people that it was their Christian duty to vote socialist, to give up their rights to the government. It resulted in tyranny. Don't be deceived by these blasphemers.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

1. Israel actively pushing Palestinian emigration from Gaza, official says - Times Of Israel

KYIV, Ukraine - Israel is actively promoting the emigration of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, and is working to find other countries who may be willing to absorb them, a senior Israeli official said Monday.

Israel is ready to carry the costs of helping Gazans emigrate, and would even be willing to consider allowing them to use an Israeli air field close to Gaza to allow them to leave for their new host countries, the official said, apparently referring to air force bases deep inside Israel.

The senior official, in Ukraine as part of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's delegation to Kiev, spoke on condition of anonymity.

2. Hamas threatens escalation - Israel National News

The Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper on Tuesday morning quoted a Hamas source who claimed that the terror groups have sent a clear message saying that if Israel does not implement the understandings, they will begin escalating the situation.

According to the paper, the understandings Israel must implement include allowing the Qatari money into Gaza each month and increasing the electricity it supplies to Gaza by the end of this week.

Qatari envoy Mohammed al-Emadi is expected to arrive in Gaza via Israel on Thursday, bringing Gaza's monthly "stipend" with him, in cash. The funds are intended for poor people in Gaza. Al-Emadi will also bring diesel fuel for use in operating Gaza's only power plant.

Israel has alread allowed two installments of $15 million in Qatari money into Gaza. The funds were supposed to have been distributed in six installments, but Israel postponed the third following the shooting of an IDF soldier by a terrorist from Gaza.

3. 'Next Gaza war will be harsher than Protective Edge' - Israel National News

On the Hamas threat of escalation if Qatari money is not delivered by the end of the week, Minister Akunis says that what they do not understand in Israel's warnings "they will understand the actions. The fact that there have been Hamas provocation and metastatic attacks over the past two weeks in an attempt to test us, including severe shooting and infiltration attempts, and we have dealt with them by killing [the perpetrators]."

"The government's policy is clear. If it seems necessary, there will be very aggressive action in the Gaza Strip. It is wrong to talk to the media about the nature of the operation. [We know] ways in which the enemy listens to us at all times and it is not good for him to know what he should prepare for, but it is clear that this campaign on our part will be far more aggressive than Operation Protective Edge and Operation Pillar of Defense," Akunis said.

Minister Akunis says that "there is a very wide range of considerations before embarking on this campaign. There are military considerations and additional arms of other systems. The elections will not limit the campaign against the Gaza Strip."

4. Amman Parliament Urges Government to Reconsider Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty - Jewish Press

The Jordanian House of Representatives has voted to recommend the Amman government expel Israeli Ambassador Amir Weissbrod from the country and recall Jordan's Ambassador from Israel.

The action comes in response to "the attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque by the Israeli authorities," as the Jordanian authorities are referring to the actions taken by Israeli police in defending themselves last week from the violence of a mob of rioting Muslim worshipers in the Temple Mount compound who hoped to prevent Jewish visitors from entering the sacred site, which is holy to Jews as well.

The Jordanian Parliament also called on the government to reconsider the Jordanian peace treaty with Israel, according to a report that appeared Monday on the Arabic-language website of Sky News, but not on its English-language site. The reported non-binding recommendation to the Jordanian government to reconsider the peace treaty, also did not appear at all in any Jordanian media coverage.

5. Netanyahu won't rule out 'broad' government with center-left - report - Times Of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly said he would not rule out a "broad" coalition government that includes elements of the center-left.

Netanyahu has vowed that he would not forge a unity government with chief rival Blue and White, but in a private conversation reported in Hebrew media, he expressed a willingness to form a government with the centrist party and those to its left.

But, he added, his government would be based first and foremost on Likud's "natural" partners, right-wing and Haredi parties.

1. Trump Defunds Planned Parenthood; Arizona Jury Awards Whistle Blower Ex-Director Millions - Restoring Liberty

Nearly two years after Mayra Rodriguez sued the abortion provider Planned Parenthood for wrongful termination after she exposed negative health complications for women using their services, a jury awarded the Arizona woman $3 million in damages this past Friday.

Rodriguez worked for the abortion behemoth for 17 years. Rodriguez reported "high complication rates for one abortionist" and also "exposed the abortionist's illegal conduct falsification of affidavits and patient records, incomplete abortions, and failure to report a minor who had an adult partner and was a victim of statutory rape." Rodriguez, who ran three Planned Parenthood clinics in Arizona, turned to Abby Johnson's "And Then There Were None" non-profit.

Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million annually from United States' taxpayers for their activities. Planned Parenthood receives about $60 million each year from Title X funding. Planned Parenthood announced Monday that it will not comply with a new Trump administration rule banning it from referring patients for abortion services and will no longer be eligible to receive federal Title X funding for family planning. (Read more)

-Father God, we pray more former abortion clinic workers will have the courage to come forward, receive forgiveness and healing from You, and work to expose the actions of co-workers and the operations of these clinics.

2. Trump Considers New Tax Cut for Middle Class, Blasts Fed After Investors Rattled by Recession Fears - CBN News

After investors were rattled last week by fears about a possible recession on the horizon, the president is criticizing Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, calling him 'clueless' and lacking in vision.

President Trump called on the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates by a full point. A survey by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE) shows 75 percent of economists believe there will be a recession by 2021.

White House officials are discussing further actions to spur the economy, including a cut in the payroll to help the middle class. Cutting payroll taxes may help the middle class, but critics say they could harm the safety net programs they fund. But those talks are in the early stages and additional tax cuts are still on the agenda for discussion. (Read more)

3. Following Epstein's Prison Death, Barr Appoints New Federal Prison Chief - Restoring Liberty

Attorney General William Barr has named Dr. Kathleen Hawk Sawyer as the acting director of the Bureau of Prisons. Dr. Hawk Sawyer was the first female director of the BOP and was appointed by Barr during his first stint as attorney general back in 1992. She remained at that position until 2003.

Barr also named Dr. Thomas R. Kane acting deputy director. He has previously served as BOP chief of staff, assistant director, deputy director, and acting director under four previous attorneys general, the release says.

"Under Dr. Hawk Sawyer's previous tenure at the Bureau, she led the agency with excellence, innovation, and efficiency, receiving numerous awards for her outstanding leadership," said Attorney General Barr in a statement. "During this critical juncture, I am confident Dr. Hawk Sawyer and Dr. Kane will lead BOP with the competence, skill, and resourcefulness they have embodied throughout their government careers."

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez will hold three fundraisers for American ex-patriots in Mexico, as Democrats struggle to keep pace with Republicans in fundraising. Perez will host three events in Mexico City on Sept. 28, Bloomberg reported. One event is a happy hour that will cost $25 to attend. Perez will also host a dinner where tickets are going for between $1,000 and $15,000.

The DNC will require attendees to provide information showing that they are American citizens or permanent residents, in order to comply with federal campaign finance laws. About 1.5 American citizens live in Mexico, Bloomberg reported, citing State Department data.

The DNC under Perez's watch has lagged far behind Republicans in terms of fundraising. The DNC took in $8.5 million in contributions in June, while the Republican National Committee reported $20.7 million. (Read more)

5. Senator Lindsay Graham Predicts IG Report Will Be 'Ugly and Damning' - American Greatness

Appearing on Maria Bartiromo's show on Sunday, Graham said "I want it all out. I want people to see how off the rails this investigation got, and I want people to be held accountable." Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating the government's misleading shenanigans with the FISA court since March of 2018.

"I believe the Horowitz report is going to be ugly and damning regarding the Department of Justice handling of the Russia probe," Graham said on Sunday. He also said he wants as much as the report declassified as possible.

"I really am very curious about the role the CIA played here. We know that the FISA warrant application was based on a dossier prepared by Christopher Steele who was biased against Trump that was unverified," he said. "What role did the CIA play? Who knew about this in the White House?" asked Graham. (Read more)

6. Judge orders FBI to search for ALL documents related to bogus 'Russia dossier' composer Christopher Steele - National Sentinel

A federal judge has ordered the FBI to search for and produce all documents related to the bureau's one-time asset, former British spy Christopher Steele, who produced the long-discredited "Russia dossier" fired FBI Director James Comey and others used to obtain surveillance warrants against the 2016 Trump campaign.

U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper, in issuing his ruling, said that the public's interest outweighed Steele's privacy rights and ordered the FBI to complete the search within 60 days. The dossier, which was never verified, was used to obtain at least four surveillance warrants, including two after President Trump was inaugurated.

"The court was right to turn aside the FBI's fake concerns for Clinton spy Christopher Steele's privacy and order the agency to search for more records on its use of Steele and his Dossier to target President Trump," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "That the FBI is still protecting Christopher Steele and the Clinton spy ring at Fusion GPS should tell you there is much more corruption to be exposed in the coup efforts against President Trump."

7. Conservative Fight Against 'Red Flag' Laws Slows Washington's Gun-Control Push - Epoch Times

With the Republican Party's conservative base opposing a potential federal "red flag" gun confiscation bill, President Donald Trump may be reconsidering backing the controversial measure.

Trump initially offered his stated support for a theoretical bill championed by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and John Thune of South Dakota, which would provide financial incentives for states to install measures to disarm potentially dangerous people.

These programs, already active in 17 states and the nation's capital, allow police officers to seize a person's guns if the person becomes the subject of a red flag warning report from police, a family member, or even a former live-in boyfriend or girlfriend. If a judge determines the person is a danger to himself or others, often at a hearing at which the gun owner isn't present, then his or her guns are confiscated. (Read more)

8. Trump: We Have to Start Building Mental Institutions Again - CNS News

President Donald Trump said Thursday that it's time to start building mental institutions again to deal with mentally ill people like those behind mass shootings. "We're looking at the whole gun situation. I do want people to remember the words 'mental illness.' These people are mentally ill and nobody talks about that, but these are mentally ill people, and people have to start thinking about it," the president said.

"I think we have to start building institutions again because, you know, if you look at the '60s and '70s, so many of these institutions were closed, and the people were just allowed to go onto the streets, and that was a terrible thing for our country. They closed them. Cities couldn't afford them, and they closed them," Trump said.

Asked whether he was pushing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on background checks, Trump said, "Yeah, we do. I've been speaking to Mitch about that. I've been speaking to everybody about it, and we don't want to see crazy people owning guns, but I also want to remember that mental illness is something nobody wants to talk about. (Read more)

9. Ohio white nationalist, anti-Semite arrested for threatening to shoot up Jewish community center, police say - ABC News

An Ohio man has been arrested for making threats toward a local Jewish community center in New Middletown. James Reardon Jr., 20, has been charged with telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing and is being held in the Mahoning County Jail on $250,000 bond with a court hearing planned for Monday morning.

On Friday, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardon's house and seized a cache of weapons and ammunition, including dozens of round of ammo, multiple semi-automatic weapons, a gas mask and bulletproof armor.

Police initially became aware of Reardon on July 11 when he posted a video on Instagram of a man shooting a semi-automatic rifle with sirens and screams in the background. He tagged the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown in the post. The FBI has not yet announced whether they will pursue federal charges against Reardon. (Read more)

10. Pence Asks Beijing To Honor British-Sino Treaty Before Any Trade Deal - Epoch Times

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned Beijing that any violent crackdown in Hong Kong on protesters would harm the Sino-U.S. trade talks, reiterating a remark made by the U.S. President Donald Trump a day earlier.

"For the United States to make a deal with China, Beijing needs to honor its commitments-beginning with the commitment China made in 1984 to respect the integrity of Hong Kong's laws through the Sino-British joint declaration," Pence stated in a speech given at the Detroit Economic Club on Aug. 19.

The 1984 bilateral treaty was drafted to stipulate how Hong Kong's sovereignty would be transferred from Britain to China in 1997, whereby both sides agreed to retain the territory's autonomy and freedoms not afforded in the mainland, under the "one country, two systems" model for 50 years.

"As the president said yesterday, it will be much harder for us to make a deal if something violent happens in Hong Kong. And I want to assure you, our administration will continue to urge Beijing to act in a humanitarian manner and urge China and the demonstrators in Hong Kong to resolve their differences peacefully," Pence added.

-Father God, we lift up the people of Hong Kong, many of whom turn to You for help in this time of crisis. Restore their freedom and give them victory.

-Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. (Psalm 20:6)

Anatomy of a hate filled political stunt

Tuesday, August 20, 2019


On August 15, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayau barred Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from an official visit to Israel. Netanyahu explained in his statement: "As a vibrant and free democracy, Israel is open to any critic and criticism, with one exception: Israel's law prohibits the entry of people who call and operate to boycott Israel. Congressmen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting boycott legislation against Israel in the US Congress. Only a few days ago, we received their visitation plan, and it became clear that they were planning a campaign whose sole purpose was to strengthen the boycott and negate Israel's legitimacy."

Omar issued a statement: "It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the US government. Trump's Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress. Denying entry into Israel not only limits our ability to learn from Israelis, but also to enter the Palestinian territories. Sadly, this is not a surprise given the public positions of Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has consistently resisted peace efforts, restricted the freedom of movement of Palestinians, limited public knowledge of the brutal realities of the occupation and aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump."

Then on the same day, Tlaib wrote in a letter to Israel's Ministry of Interior: "I would like to request admittance to Israel in order to visit my relatives, and specifically, my grandmother, who is in her 90s and lives in Beit Ur al-Fouqa. This could be my last opportunity to see her. I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit." Israel granted her request. Then, after Israel accepted Tlaib's visit based on her own conditions, Tlaib refused to go, claiming racism, oppression and injustice. She stated, "Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she [her grandmother] wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in--fighting against racism, oppression & injustice."

Israel's Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, who granted Tlaib's request to visit her grandmother, responded: "Apparently her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother." This pretty well sums it up. Israel has experienced for decades this type of hate-filled propaganda and political stunts from the Marxist-Islamist Palestinian movement. Now that Michigan and Minnesota have elected these anti-Semetic, hate-mongers to Congress, America will be experiencing similar tactics. It is also the same hate-baiting that is occurring on a grander scale against anyone who disagrees with the Democratic Party leadership. This is like David's description of the Edomite in Psalm 52:2-3, "Your tongue devises mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. You love evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
