2. UNRWA discovers Hamas tunnel under Gaza schools - Jerusalem Post

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency announced on Friday that they discovered on June 1 a tunnel under two of its schools in the Gaza Strip: The Maghazi Elementary Boys A&B School and the Maghazi Prepatory Boys School, which are located on the same premises.

In a statement, UNRWA spokesperson Christopher Gunness said that the tunnels were discovered during construction of an extension of one of the buildings during summer vacation, when the schools were empty. The tunnel had no entry or exit points within the school.

"UNRWA condemns the existence of such tunnels in the strongest possible terms," the statement read. "It is unacceptable that students and staff are placed at risk in such a way. The construction and presence of tunnels under UN premises are incompatible with the respect of privileges and immunities owed to the United Nations under applicable international law, which provides that UN premises shall be inviolable. The sanctity and neutrality of UN premises must be preserved at all times." (Read more)

3. Israel demands UN response following Gaza tunnel discovery - Jerusalem Post

Israel on Friday called on the UN to "strongly and unequivocally condemn Hamas" and formally classify the group a "terrorist organization" following the discovery of a tunnel that runs beneath two UN Relief and Works Agency schools in the Gaza Strip.

In a letter to the president of the Security Council, Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon demanded that "this time, the international community must not turn a blind eye toward such cynical exploitation" of civilian infrastructure in Gaza by Hamas.

UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov posted the following message on Twitter on Saturday: "Despicable to risk the lives of children! Hamas must end illicit arms buildup and militant activity in Gaza." (Read more)

4. Journalist ordered to pay Netanyahu damages for libel - World Israel News

A Tel Aviv court has ordered a journalist to pay more than NIS 100,000 ($25,000) in damages to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara for libeling them.

The magistrate court in Tel Aviv ruled Sunday that Yigal Sarna libeled the couple for writing a Facebook post claiming the prime minister's wife had kicked Netanyahu out of their car during a fight.

According to Netanyahu, the entire story was a lie; it did not and could not have happened. Anyone who knows anything at all about motorcade security would understand that such a situation could not have occurred, he said. (Read more)

5. Israeli cabinet decides to heed PA request to cut Gaza electricity - Times of Israel

Israel has reportedly decided to heed a Palestinian Authority request to cut electricity supply to the Hamas-run Gaza Strip after the PA announced it would not continue to pay the bill as it stepped up pressure on its main rival.

An Israeli official told the daily Haaretz newspaper on Sunday that the security cabinet earlier in the day had accepted the recommendation of the Israeli military to cut the supply at the request of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas whose confrontation with Hamas has escalated in recent months.

6. Nikki Haley at Yad Vashem: 'We must always choose a side' - Jerusalem Post

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley visited Yad Vashem on Friday, during the third and final day of her Israel visit.

Haley toured the vast Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, accompanied by Dr Robert Rozett, Director of Yad Vashem Libraries, and participated in a memorial ceremony in the museum's Hall of Remembrance. Haley laid a wreath in memory of those killed during the Holocaust.

Signing the Yad Vashem guest book, Haley wrote that "we must always honor and remember the lives lost during one of the most horrible times in history. There is a lesson here. Leadership is not about power. Leadership is the acknowledgment and value of human dignity. We must always choose a side." (Read more)

The Daily Brief

Please note:
Every prayer below is presented to our Lord in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.

1. Top criminal law expert joins special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe -

One of the federal government's top criminal law specialists is joining the investigation by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III centered on possible coordination between President Trump's associates and Russian officials.

Justice Department deputy solicitor general Michael Dreeben, who has argued more than 100 cases before the Supreme Court, is the department's go-to lawyer on criminal justice cases and is highly respected by Democrats and Republicans because of his encyclopedic knowledge of criminal law. Dreeben will work part time for Mueller, according to Justice officials, while he continues to oversee the department's criminal appellate cases.

Former and current Justice Department officials say that Mueller's recruitment of Dreeben shows how serious he is about the investigation and signals complexities in the probe. "Michael is the most brilliant and most knowledgeable federal criminal lawyer in America - period," said Walter Dellinger, a law professor at Duke University School of Law and acting solicitor general for the 1996-1997 term of the Supreme Court.

"I learned early on in my time as acting [solicitor general] that there was no point of ever thinking of second-guessing Michael on a matter of federal criminal law, because he just knew more than I did or could ever know," Dellinger said. "He's a straight shooter, and is held in the greatest esteem by the FBI and lawyers in U.S. attorneys offices all over the country."

Mueller, working out of the Patrick Henry Building on D Street NW, was appointed special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein on May 17 and has been building a team of top criminal-law experts for his high-profile investigation. Dreeben's move to the team was first reported by the National Law Journal. (Read more)

- Lord, the appointment of Michael Dreeben to the counsel on the Russian probe may be the first thing that both sides of Congress have agreed on during the current administration. This could be Your answering the many prayers that have gone up to You regarding unity in our government. Give this counsel Your direction through the Holy Spirit for an honest and truthful conclusion of the investigation. We pray that Michael Dreeben's work as Special Prosecutor in these investigations would not be tainted by his own, close friendship with James Comey in past years. We ask this in Your name, amen.

- "Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgement on themselves." (Romans 13: 1-2)

2. House, Senate committees want Trump tapes, Comey memos - Fox News

House and Senate lawmakers leading the Russia investigation have asked the White House to produce tapes President Trump hinted might exist of a conversation between him and ousted FBI Director James Comey. They also made a formal request to the Comey camp for copies of the memos he testified he made to document the meetings.

The requests come on the heels of explosive allegations by Comey and a string of strong denials by Trump over the abrupt dismissal of the FBI director and the circumstances surrounding it.

Comey testified Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he'd given a memo that detailed a conversation with Trump to his friend, Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University. On Friday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, reached out to Comey's confidant and the committee confirmed Saturday that they had been in touch with Richman about the memo. "Mr. Richman has had direct contact with the Committee about the request for the memos.," the committee told Fox News. "Staff for Special Counsel Mueller and the Committee are also in discussions about that request and others, in preparation for a meeting between Mueller and Committee leadership."

Separately, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced they had made two requests for evidence themselves - one to Comey and another to White House counsel Don McGahn.Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Michael Conaway, R-Texas, said they wrote to Comey asking for any notes or memos he took.They also asked McGahn to tell the committee whether the White House has or has ever had recordings of Comey's conversation with Trump - and put a June 23 deadline on the information. (Read more)

- Father, we now see an explosion of activity on both sides of the Hill, all related to one key issue: the testimony rendered by former FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week. We call forth truth -- and only truth -- to flow through the halls of Congress now, and we cast out confusion and chaos in Your name. amen.

- "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him." (Isaiah 59:19)

3. Trump's pick for FBI director tied to Shariah-compliant deals - WND

Shariah law is like a mysterious "other" for most Westerners, who may know of its intolerance of other religions and its criminal codes that call for stoning adulterers and the cutting off of limbs for petty thieves.

But few know there is a portion of Shariah that includes a thriving area of finance - deals for real estate and business transactions taking place all over the world with Arab money. President Donald Trump's pick to head the FBI, Christopher Wray, surely knows something about this segment of Shariah.

Wray is a litigation partner at King & Spalding, which is one of the leading conduits for Shariah-compliant Islamic deal-making around the world. The firm prides itself in its connections to wealthy Middle Eastern investment groups. According to its website, King & Spalding is a global leader in Islamic finance and investment. It was one of the first American law firms to aid Islamic investors in accumulating assets in the West. (Read more)
- Father God, we ask great wisdom for the Senate Judiciary Committee when they weigh the qualifications of Christopher Wray to serve as the new Director of the FBI. We ask that a director be named that has absolutely no ties to Muslim nations or businesses that are Shariah compliant. We ask that a director be appointed to head the FBI who will only honor our United States Constitution in all he says and does. In Your Name, amen.

- "See, my enemies are fertile with evil. They conceive trouble and give birth to deception." (Psalm 7:14)

4. Sessions says he will discuss Comey with Senate panel - Reuters

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a letter on Saturday that he will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday to address matters former FBI Director James Comey brought up this week in testimony to the same panel.

In a letter seen by Reuters, Sessions told Senator Richard Shelby, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies, that the intelligence committee is the "most appropriate" place to address matters that came up during Comey's hearing on Thursday.

The letter did not say whether Sessions planned to give public testimony or to appear before the panel behind closed doors.

"In light of reports regarding Mr. Comey's recent testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, it is important that I have an opportunity to address these matters in the appropriate forum," Sessions said in the letter.

The committee "is the most appropriate forum for such matters, as it has been conducting an investigation and has access to relevant, classified information," he added. The Senate panel is investigating allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. (Read more)

- Lord God, we create a wall of prayer around our Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and we thank You that You are guiding him in each decision he is making. In Your name, amen.

- "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you." (Psalm 32:8)

5. Dem congressmen's guide explains how to leak secrets - WND

More than three months before the Justice Department announced a 25-year-old National Security Agency contractor had been arrested for leaking top-secret information to a news outlet, two Democratic members of Congress launched a taxpayer-funded, official government website to show federal employees how to leak government information to the media.

In an article headlined "Federal Employees Guide To Sharing Key Information With The Public," Reps. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., and Don Beyer, D-Va., are encouraging whistleblowers, specifically within President Trump's administration, to continue leaking to the media.

"Now more than ever we need whistleblowers to come forward. I created an official website on how to leak to the press," Lieu tweeted with a link to his official congressional website. (Read more)

- Father, we trust You Almighty God to halt these unmaskings and bring an end to any further unmaskings by any former Obama employee. Lord, we pray that You will close down and phase out all positions that are now held by employees of the past administration because they are no longer needed. Establish new positions that will be filled by employees who will bring unity and stability to President Trump's administration. In the Name of Jesus we pray and believe it done for God's glory.

- "Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is."
(I Corinthians 3:13)

6. Alleged NSA Leaker Once Said 'Being White Is Terrorism' - Breitbart

Reality Winner, who is white, tweeted to rapper Kanye West in February that he should make a shirt saying whiteness is a form of terrorism.

"@kanyewest you should make a shirt that says, 'being white is terrorism,'" Winner wrote on Twitter.

A search of Winner's Twitter account shows multiple left-wing messages disparaging President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, ranging from calling the president an "orange fascist" to calling Sessions a "Confederate general" who encourages racism: Winner's Facebook page also shows posts "resisting" Trump with the hashtags #NeverMyPresident and #resist, but one such post is no longer available.

Winner worked as a government contractor with Pluribus International Corporation in Georgia and was charged Monday with allegedly leaking NSA documents on Russian election hacking to The Intercept. (Read more)

- Lord God: We pray that You will dispatch holy angels from heaven to close the mouths of the lions who are spreading false statements against President Trump and that their voice will not be heard. We bind the demons under the Blood of Jesus who use the media to send out poisonous arrows against our President and his administration. May the fire of God burn up these arrows and they will not find a target to spread evil. We declare that the Name of Jesus is against all this evil. Amen

- "The Lord thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered His voice. And He sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning and, discomfited them"
(II Samuel 22:14-15)

7. Devin Nunes on Unmasking: 'Oh, This Is Only the Beginning' - The Daily Beast

Colleague Mary Kissel of The Wall Street Journal editorial board and I discussed recently with Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Select Intelligence Committee the thinking behind the committee's issuing subpoenas seeking details about unmaskings of American citizens that were requested by three senior Obama administration officials, former CIA director John Brennan, former national security adviser Susan Rice, and former UN ambassador Samantha Power.

"The subpoenas," Nunes explained, "actually went to the NSA, the CIA, and the FBI, requesting specifically, of those three individuals that were named, the unmaskings they have done, that they did, from the time period of 2016, the entire year, leading up to Jan. 20 of this year."

Quickly Nunes focused on the politics of the unmaskings.

"I can't get into why we chose those individuals, but clearly this is just further escalation in the concern we have of the unmaskings of Americans by the senior leaders of the Obama administration. Americans that didn't know about it, and, of course, potentially Trump transition officials." (Read more)

- Father, we trust You Almighty God to halt these unmaskings and bring an end to any further unmaskings by any former Obama employee. Lord, we pray that You will close down and phase out all positions that are now held by employees of the past administration because they are no longer needed. Establish new positions that will be filled by employees who will bring unity and stability to President Trump's administration. In the Name of Jesus we pray and believe it done for God's glory.

- "Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is."

8. After sowing doubts, Trump backs NATO mutual defense under charter - Reuters

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that he backs the NATO charter's demand that all members be prepared to defend each other, weeks after jarring allies by not restating U.S. support for the agreement.

At a joint news conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, Trump said he supports the NATO charter's Article 5, the requirement that each member of the alliance defend each other if they come under attack.

During a visit to NATO headquarters last month in Brussels, Trump had pointedly not mentioned U.S. support for the critical portion of the NATO charter. He used his speech there to demand that members pay more for the alliance's defense. (Read more)

- We thank You, Lord, that You are, indeed, guiding this president in every decision he is making now for the good of our nation, both foreign and domestic, in Your name, amen.

- "The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes." (Proverbs 21:1)

9. Hawaii ignores Trump, is first state to pass law committing to Paris Climate Accord - Fox News

The governor of Hawaii on Tuesday signed a bill that aligns the state's carbon emissions with the Paris climate accord. Gov. David Ige signed the bill that calls on documenting sea level rise and set strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

"Many of the greatest challenges of our day hit us first, and that means that we also need to be first when it comes to creating solutions," Mr. Ige, a Democrat, said, according to The New York Times. "We are the testing grounds - as an island state, we are especially aware of the limits of our natural environment. Climate change is real, regardless of what others may say," he said. President Trump withdrew the U.S. from that agreement last week.

Ige says Hawaii is the first state to enact legislation implementing parts of the Paris climate agreement. Ige says the islands are seeing the impacts of climate change first-hand. He says tides are getting higher, biodiversity is shrinking, coral is bleaching and coastlines are eroding.

At least a dozen states including Hawaii have signed pledges to continue reducing fossil-fuel emissions despite Trump's decision. (Read more)

- Father God, the President of the United States is working hard to make spirit-led decisions for our country. Please keep Your hand on his mind, his body and his soul as he faces battles brought on by negative and evil people. His position as President deserves the respect of all citizens. His decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord should be the last word. For eight years NOTHING was done for the good of our nation. Some seem to have forgotten those years. Praise You for leading President Trump in keeping our tax dollars from going to this accord and his many plans for the good of our nation. To God be the glory.

- "It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation." (Revelation 13:7)

10. Bernie Sanders attacks Trump nominee for following teachings of Christ - Fox News

On Wednesday, Russell Vought, President Trump's nominee to be deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, was viciously attacked by Sen. Bernie Sanders over his Christian faith. The controversy stems from an article Vought wrote in 2016 defending his alma mater, Wheaton College. In that article, he described Islam as a "deficient theology." Sen. Sanders deemed Vought unsuitable for office because he believes that salvation is found alone through Jesus Christ. He said someone with that kind of a religious belief system is "really not someone who this country is supposed to be about." Sen. James Lankford warned that Sander's comments were "dangerously close to crossing a clear constitutional line for how we evaluate qualifications for public service." (Read more)

- Lord God Almighty, there can be no excuse for this behavior by a sitting member of the United States Senate. We thank You that the Family Research Council is taking action to publish a petition of protest that will be sent to the senator this week. Thank You, Lord, for our own freedom of speech, and religion, in Your name, amen.

- "By smooth words he will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength and take action." (Daniel 11:32)

11. U.S. downs pro-Syrian drone that fired at coalition forces: spokesman - Reuters

The United States shot down a pro-Syrian government drone that fired toward U.S.-led coalition forces in Syria on Thursday, a U.S. military spokesman said, in a major escalation of tensions between Washington and troops supporting Damascus.

The armed drone "hit dirt" and there were no injuries or damage done to the coalition patrol in southern Syria. But U.S. Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State, told reporters the drone meant to attack them and dismissed the possibility it had fired a warning shot. "This clearly showed a threat even if it were a warning shot; it was something that showed a hostile intent, a hostile action and posed a threat to our forces because this drone still had munitions that were still on it," Dillon said. He added that it was the first known time that pro-Syrian government forces had fired at coalition forces in the area.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the munition landed a few hundred yards from coalition forces and failed to explode. The official added that a U.S. F-15 fighter jet was used to strike the drone, which was likely Iranian-made but that further analysis was being carried out. (Read more)

- Father God, bless the military personnel who took authority over this pro-Syrian drone and allowed the U.S. F-15 fighter jet to strike it down without any injuries. Thank You for the brave men and women in uniform who are fighting to protect us and our freedom. Place Your protection over each one of them. Lead the leaders to follow Your plan for our country, Lord. In Your Name, amen.

- "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." (Jeremiah 33:3)

Update: London Terror Attack

Update: London Terror Attack

1. Michigan Preacher Helped 'Radicalize' London Attacker - Daily Caller

A Michigan-based Islamic preacher's YouTube account may have helped radicalize one of Saturday's London attackers, a friend of the attacker told BBCNews Asia.

The preacher, Ahmad Musa Jibril, is well known on youtube for preaching sermons that appear to lionize Islamic terrorists fighting in Syria. The friend of the attacker was so concerned by his obsession with the preacher's sermons, it prompted him to notify the anti-terror police. The attacker and two accomplices killed seven and injured dozens more after plowing a car into a crowd and stabbing passersby before police could gun them down.

"He used to listen to a lot of Musa Jibril. I have heard some of this stuff and its very radical. I am surprised this stuff is still on YouTube and is easily accessible. I phoned the anti-terror hotline. I spoke to the gentleman. I told him about our conversation and why I think he was radicalised," the friend told BBCNews. (Read more)

- Lord God, we plead the Blood of Jesus over all the works of this terrorist in Michigan and pray his outreach on Youtube be cancelled. Father, cut off his evil communications with the media and send holy angels to stand against satan's assignment that is being carried out by this evil man. We declare his works on earth are finished. He will no longer incite killings of innocent people. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate." (Psalm 7:15-16)

2. Pakistan Home of London Terrorist Who Came to UK as Child Refugee Raided, Had Access to Tunnels Under Parliament - Breitbart

Sky News reports that Butt, who they say came to Britain with his parents from Pakistan as asylum seekers, worked for Transport for London. Further reports indicate Butt's work gave him access to tunnels under the Houses of Parliament from the Westminster Underground Station - despite the fact he had been investigated for terror links by MI5 and even been featured on a Channel 4 documentary about British-based Islamists titled 'The Jihadis Next Door'.

Pakistani security officials told The Telegraph newspaper that raids on homes and businesses connected to the Butt family were being carried out as a precaution, but that the terrorist was likely radicalised in Britain and trained in Syria.

"Our British counterparts told us they don't think he was radicalised here, and we think it is probably more likely that he was trained in Syria," one said. "But we are searching the homes of any relatives connected to him and we are tracing all telephone calls made by family members." (Read more)

- Lord God, alert all companies in the world to investigate with keen precision all persons from Muslim countries or Muslims living in non-Muslim countries before hiring them in these sensitive positions. We cover each of these tunnels with the Blood of the Lamb, by faith in Your name. We thank You that, even though this terrorist had these maps in hand, You moved by Your holy angels to prevent him from acting on that information before he could stage a terror attack within the heart of the British Parliament itself. Thank You, Lord, for Your keeping power over us, in Your name, amen.

- "In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light." (Job 24:16)

3. London Bridge terror attack identity - ISIS attacker was filmed on Channel 4 before attack - Telegraph UK

Anti-terror bosses today face tough questions over how the ex-London Underground, KFC and Topshop worker managed to slip through the net before carrying out Saturday night's atrocity, killing seven people and injuring dozens others.

The 27-year-old manic was pictured lying dead wearing an Arsenal shirt after armed police gunned down him and two other terror thugs.

It is has now been revealed the home-grown jihadi was twice reported to anti-terror authorities after he was apparently brainwashed by watching extremist YouTube videos. He even appeared in a Channel 4 documentary last year about British jihadis where he was filmed alongside two notorious preachers.

At one point the Muslim terrorist is filmed involved in an altercation with police after an ISIS flag was unfurled in a park. It is also claimed police were warned about the Muslim terrorist, understood to be one of three men behind the stabbing rampage, radicalising children in a local park two years ago. (Read more)

- Father, stories like this one do amaze us, and leave us wondering how easily these jihadists are slipping through the cracks of the intelligence agencies. We pray for those who are tasked with tracking down these evil men -- and women -- even as our own resources are so stretched to the limit. Lord God, we ask for supernatural wisdom to be upon all authorities here, in the UK, and around the world, so that this reign of terror can be stopped. In Your Name, amen.

- ". . . those who have insight will understand . . ." (Daniel 12:10)

4. [A Story of Heroism] Kirsty Boden: Nurse killed in London Bridge attack as she 'ran towards danger' to help people - The Independent UK

The third victim of the London Bridge terror attack has been named as Kirsty Boden, an Australian nurse who "ran towards danger" to help people during the deadly onslaught. The 28-year-old is among the seven people who were killed when three terrorists rammed a white van into people in the London Bridge area, before exiting the vehicle and stabbing people at random in Borough market.

Ms Boden worked at Guy's Hospital in London Bridge. Her family have asked for privacy, and paid tribute to her in a statement, calling her "the most outgoing, kind and generous person" who loved to help others. "Kirsty was loved and adored by her family, friends and boyfriend," they said. "She was the most outgoing, kind and generous person, who loved to help people. Helping people was what she loved to do in her job as a nurse and in her daily life.

"As she ran towards danger, in an effort to help people on the bridge, Kirsty sadly lost her life.

"We are so proud of Kirsty's brave actions which demonstrate how selfless, caring and heroic she was, not only on that night, but throughout all of her life. Kirsty - we love you and we will miss you dearly." (Read more)

- Precious Lord: We pray that You will touch Kirsty's family and friends with Your healing hands and give them great comfort knowing that she was a true blessing to all who knew her. Lift up their hearts to God and draw them close to Jesus, the Savior and healer of all mankind. And Father, those who are guilty of causing her death along with the other six victims, bring them out from hiding and let them receive their just reward. In the Name of Jesus we pray.

- "The Lord shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come out against you one way, and flee afore you seven ways." (Deuteronomy 28:7)

The UK Election

The UK Election: Thoughts About its Aftermath

1. What the UK election earthquake means for the world - CNN

UK Prime Minister Theresa May called for snap elections with hopes of increasing her majority in Parliament. She'd argued that the elections would give her the boost she needed to have a strong hand in negotiations to leave the EU. But now, after losing her majority, the Conservative Party's embarrassing showing has catapulted British politics into the unknown.

As May plans to form a minority government propped up with the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), the far-reaching implications of this election earthquake are soon to be felt around the world. (Read more)

2. The shocking UK election results, explained -

When the projections first came out showing Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May losing control of Parliament on Thursday night, the surprise at the watch party I attended in central London was palpable. People wandered around the basement of a fancy building at the London School of Economics, staring at televisions blaring the BBC with mouths open in either elation or despair, depending on who they supported.

The full results on Friday morning show that the shock was entirely warranted.

May's Tories lost 12 seats in Parliament, when just two months ago they reasonably hoped to gain nearly 100. They're still the largest party - having won 318 out of 650 total seats - but no longer hold a majority.

In the British system, this kind of situation - where no one party controls most of Parliament - is called a "hung Parliament." Typically, it means that the largest party keeps control of the government, but cannot pass any major laws - a big deal when she's attempting to work out a complex Brexit deal with the European Union. . . The biggest impact will be on Brexit - with consequences that effect millions of lives . . . (Read more)

5. May vows to stay course on Brexit, but resignation pressure builds after stunning loss - Washington Post

On the day after British voters delivered an astonishing repudiation of Prime Minister Theresa May at the very moment that she had expected to be her crowning glory, she tried to go on as though nothing much had changed.

She would stay on as prime minister. She would keep her cabinet's elite circle. Her plans for Brexit would go forward.

"That's what people voted for last June," she announced defiantly outside 10 Downing Street after meeting with Queen Elizabeth II to discuss her new government. "That's what we'll deliver. Now let's get to work."

But beneath the bravado was a creeping reality: A year after choosing to get out of the European Union, voters had stunned the establishment once more. In the process, they may have thrust a dagger through the heart of a young premiership that only days ago had looked to be on the verge of achieving power of Thatcheresque proportions.

"It's not clear to me that Theresa May is going to survive the next few days," said Ian Kearns, co-founder of the European Leadership Network, a London-based think tank. "The level of damage that she's done to her own brand is immense. The rebellion against her is just getting started." (Read more)

6. Everything You Need to Know About What the Shock Loss of Theresa May's Conservative Party in the UK Means for the United States - Charisma News

Today (Thursday, June 8), voters across the UK went to the polls to elect Members of Parliament in the snap election called on April 18. American observers and people of faith should care about the results, because they could affect the transatlantic alliance in numerous ways.

First, the election could deepen, or chill, the "special relationship" between the United States and the UK.

Second, the election will affect the balance of power in Europe.

Third, the future of America's closest ally is at stake.

People of faith should care whether the UK maintains its economic vitality and forges trade ties that could greatly benefit the developing world potentially causing its agricultural sector (and hence, global food production) to flourish. They should care about maintaining a strong U.S.-UK alliance, which has fought for religious liberty and other transatlantic values for more than a century. And all people should be concerned about checking the spread of radical jihadist violence and securing the safety of the British people. (Charisma News) Read more.

Comey this, Comey that, Comey, Comey, Comey-the news reports on the James Comey testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee are beginning to sound like some sort of rock and roll song. I wasn't going to write any more on this, but there is no choice. This whole thing with Comey and his testimony is a dog and pony show on the biggest stage in the world showing how hypocritical and petty the Washington, D.C. political machine has become. It never was wonderfully honorable, but the hype aimed at destroying reputations and providing high-drama for political gain is held at the public expense of taxpayers over the insinuation and innuendo of political hack James Comey. It's embarrassing.

The one new revelation that came from the testimony of this Democratic Party operative and 5th Estate power monger is that Comey revealed just how underhanded the political tactics become when someone feels their power is threatened. He gave America insight into the shenanigans by admitting that he used a close friend of his-Columbia law professor Daniel Richman-to leak the content of his memos to himself to the New York Times in hope of triggering the appointment of a special counsel. What he did was write up his own (hear biased or politically motivated opinion) account of his private meetings with President Donald Trump and leaked them through a second party to the New York Times with hopes of undermining Trump's presidency.
That's the motive. It is not what the leftist news media will report, but it is-take it from a former political operative-how hardball is played. At the same time Comey is admitting to this underhanded chicanery, he also testified that he couldn't say whether Trump's request to shut down the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was an obstruction of justice. He said this issue was for a special counsel to determine. This is another political tactic to undermine Trump's presidency-answer a leading question without saying a law was broken, but imply that it was. The news picks up on it, and the reputation of the target suffers in the public irrespective of whether it is true or false.
So far, the Democrats are winning in their media war against Trump. They have a special counsel appointed. An investigation is underway even though top Democrats say there is no evidence of wrong doing. The witch hunt is aired in the public daily, undermining the public confidence in the presidency. And that is the goal-to make it so Trump cannot implement his agenda. It's a strategy of the coup. As long as the notion of wrongdoing is pounded into the public's minds, the strategy of this revolution is succeeding. As Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Don't forget it. This spiritual wickedness is very persuasive and can cause even the elect to misstep.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

FRC Petition re: Sen. Sanders' Bigotry

Tell the U.S. Senate to Say NO to Sen. Sanders' Religious Bigotry!

Sign this petition to the U.S. Senate to Reject Senator Bernie Sanders' demand that Bible-believing Christians be excluded from presidential appointments.

Wednesday night, U.S. senators witnessed one of the most stunning outbursts of religious bigotry and hostility in recent memory. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) responded in anger after Russell Vought, President Trump's nominee to be Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, answered a question about his belief that salvation is found alone through Jesus Christ. Sanders declared Mr. Vought is "really not someone who this country is supposed to be about."

Senator Sanders made this blatantly unconstitutional endorsement of a religious litmus test following this exchange:

Sanders: Let me get to this issue that has bothered me and bothered many other people. And that is in the piece that I referred to that you wrote for the publication called Resurgent. You wrote, "Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned." Do you believe that that statement is Islamophobic?

Vought: Absolutely not, senator. I'm a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith. That post, as I stated in the questionnaire to this committee, was to defend my alma mater, Wheaton College, a Christian school that has a statement of faith that includes the centrality of Jesus Christ for salvation. . .

This is a core biblical tenet held by Christians - Protestant and Catholic - throughout the world for millennia.

The Bible says in John 3:18 that "Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."

Yet Senator Sanders is making it clear that he believes the U.S. Senate should disqualify nominees who expresses this most basic biblical belief. Senator Sanders is taking the Obama era's religious hostility and putting it on steroids.

Please sign this petition and we will deliver it to every U.S. Senator -- reminding him or her that our Constitution guarantees there will be no religious litmus test. Americans should never be forced to choose between their faith and public service. Nor should the U.S. Senate try to impose a stealth litmus test that says "you can be religious as long as you don't actually believe or talk about what the Bible teaches." By signing this petition, you are asking Senator Sanders to apologize for his bigotry and asking his Senate colleagues to immediately pledge that they will not oppose nominees on the basis of their religious views.
Demanding a loyalty oath to the government's (or Senator Sanders') determination of what beliefs are acceptable isn't what this country is about; indeed, it's what we fought for independence from! We should celebrate that we are a nation that not only allows but encourages every American to hold and express their religious beliefs without fear of retribution by the government. This is the essence of America and the Constitution.

Rallies against Islamic law draw counter-protests across US - Fox News

Small but disorderly protests around the country Saturday raised the worry that extremist interpretations of Islamic law somehow might swell across the U.S. and infect American democracy, but many of the rallies drew even more over-the-top counter-protests by demonstrators who called such fears an unfounded distortion of Islam. (Read more)

Hundreds of counter-protesters marched through downtown Seattle, banging drums, cymbals and cowbells behind a large sign saying "Seattle stands with our Muslim neighbors." Participants chanted "No hate, no fear, Muslims are welcome here" on their way to City Hall, where dozens of anti-Shariah protesters rallied.

A phalanx of bicycle police officers kept the sides separated during the sanctioned events, but authorities said a large fight broke out after the gatherings concluded. Seattle police used tear gas to disperse rowdy demonstrators and made several arrests following an anti-Shariah rally and a much larger counter-protest. The department said it was still reviewing how many people were arrested and what charges they might face, but at least some were expected to be booked for investigation of assault. (Read more)

Classic Hymns:


"I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened." (Revelation 20:12)


When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more,
And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair;
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.


When the roll, is called up yon-der,
When the roll, is called up yon-der,
When the roll, is called up yon-der,
When the roll is called up yonder I'll be there.

On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.


Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

About the hymn:

Black, a Meth­od­ist Sun­day school teach­er in Wil­liams­port, Penn­syl­van­ia, was call­ing roll one day for a youth meet­ing. Young Bes­sie, daugh­ter of a drunk­ard, did not show up, and he was dis­ap­point­ed at her fail­ure to ap­pear. Black made a com­ment to the ef­fect, "Well, I trust when the roll is called up yon­der, she'll be there." He tried to re­spond with an ap­prop­ri­ate song, but could not find one in his song book:

This lack of a fit­ting song caused me both sor­row and dis­ap­point­ment. An in­ner voice seemed to say, "Why don't you write one?" I put away the thought. As I opened the gate on my way home, the same thought came again so strong­ly that tears filled my eyes. I en­tered the house and sat down at the pi­a­no. The words came to me ef­fort­less­ly. The tune came the same way-I dared not change a sin­gle note or word.

"Streaked, Speckled and Spotted":

Jacob's Lambs, First in 2,000 Years, Born in Native Land of Israel

After a journey as dramatic as anything in the Bible, the first Jacob's Sheep born in the land of Israel in over two millennia made their auspicious appearance last month in the Jordan Valley. One Torah Codes expert found an amazingly precise and detailed description of the flock's arrival and the role it will play in bringing the Third Temple.

The precious flock of 119 Jacob's Sheep, a rare breed experts believe originated in Israel, finally returned in November after a journey of 2,000 years. Experts believe the unique breed, originally raised by Jacob, accompanied the Hebrews into slavery in Egypt and spread from there to North Africa. The Moors traded them to Spain, and then to England. Collectors have since brought them to North America. Considered a 'heritage' breed, meaning the sheep retain many of their genetic traits, they thrive in desert climes and have four horns.

The Good News Corner

Abortionists Can No Longer Mutilate Babies in Abortion or Sell Their Body Parts in This State

Senate Bill 8, the Texas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, also makes partial-birth abortion illegal. A federal law already bans partial-birth abortion. The procedure involves delivering all of a live baby except her head and then stabbing scissors into the base of her skull, sucking her brains out, and then removing her head after it's been destroyed. It's a form of late-term abortion that is illegal under federal law; other methods of late-term abortion are legal even hours before a baby is to be born.

The undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress showed how profitable the sale of aborted baby body parts is for the abortion industry. The most recently released video, which Vimeo and YouTube are censoring, shows Planned Parenthood abortionist Dr. Ann Schutt-Aine describe how she avoids committing an illegal partial-birth abortion. She said that when she's about to commit what would be considered a partial-birth abortion, she yanks off one of the baby's legs to prevent it from being classified as such. (LifeSite News) Go here.
