Honoring Veterans Day:

Remarks Made by President Trump in Da Nang, Vietnam

President Trump Honors Veterans in Vietnam

This morning, in Da Nang, Vietnam, President Trump participated in a meet-and-greet with Vietnam War Veterans. The President expressed his gratitude for their service to the United States, and reaffirmed his commitment to honor the sacrifice of all Veterans and rebuild our military. After giving remarks, President Trump signed a proclamation to honor the veterans of the Vietnam War, part of an ongoing 13-year commemoration of their sacrifice for freedom.

"Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism. To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well," President Trump said.

AND . . . A BIG "THANK YOU" from us . . . to you!

Our Bible Readathon was a great success!

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to share with you that our statistics are now in, and 622 readers called our Readathon line since last Friday, Nov. 3rd, at noon, to read through the whole Word of God, several times straight through!

Today, despite threats by Antifa to bring violence to our streets, and despite concerns for the President's safety during his 13-day tour of six countries in Asia . . . all is well and we have PEACE in our land.
And perhaps even more important is the fact that everyone who entered into the reading of His Word was RICHLY BLESSED, and there was GREAT JOY in the camp!
But please don't stop now: CHPP continues to host the Bible Readathon line EVERY DAY/NIGHT OF THE WEEK, from midnight to 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Please continue to join us, as you can, by calling 712-770-4340; Access Code: 350430#.

One Week Ago Tomorrow . . .

Remembering Sutherland Springs, Texas

One week ago tomorrow, tragedy struck the little First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. A gunman entered the church and suddenly and in a very few minutes, gunned down 26 of its parishoners. He later turned the gun on himself.

As we continue to lift up the survivors of this massacre, and the community, asking for God's healing touch to visit each one, today we share more news about this tragedy.

May our heavenly Father continue to bring his healing touch to these survivors, as our nation moves forward.

(In one of the videos below, the congregation sings, "In the darkest night, His light will shine . . .")

And we say, "Amen!"

The Daily Mail has published a detailed account of the shooting, and biographies (with photos) of each of the 26 who were killed that day. You can go here to read this moving account of this story.

2. WATCH: Texas Massacre Hero, Stephen Willeford, Describes Stopping Gunman

An exclusive interview with Stephen Willeford, the hero who ended the killing spree in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Stephen recounts the actions that lead him to confronting Devin Patrick Kelley outside First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs. Willeford states that it was "the Spirit" that gave him the courage and the skill and the peace of mind to do what needed to be done that terrible morning. You can view his testimony here.

3. VP Mike Pence Joins Sutherland Springs Community in Prayer After Shooting - San Antonio Current

It wasn't a regular night on the Floresville High School football field. The crowd had gathered at the small town stadium to join their community members in prayer, days after a gunman killed 26 people in a tiny white church just 10 miles down the road. To them, the victims of the Sutherland Springs shooting were family, friends, classmates, neighbors, a kid on their daughter's sports team, a familiar face at the grocery store, a Sunday school teacher. Tonight was the first time many of them had reunited since the Sunday attack.

After a three hour wait for some visitors, the shivering crowd stood in applause as an unlikely team strutted onto the field: Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senator Ted Cruz, Gov. Greg Abbott, Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick, and a few other Texas congressmen.

The night, for the community, was about group healing and recovery. For the officials in the spotlight, it was as much a sign of support and sympathy as it was a public reminder that they are God-fearing politicians.

"Whenever things occur that are beyond explanation there is only one source that has the answers and that is God almighty," said Gov. Abbott, who spoke before Pence. Abbott held up a document, announcing that he'd designated the coming Sunday, Nov. 12 as a statewide "Day of Prayer." It's the same gesture he made after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in August.

"Pray for the state of Texas. And while you're at it I'd ask you to pray for America," Pence said. "I believe with all my heart that as long as we remember that we are one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all that God will yet bless America." (Read more)

4. First Baptist Church Pastor Plans to Demolish, Memorialize Church - San Antonio Current

The First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, where 26 people were killed in a mass shooting on Nov. 5, will be demolished on a yet-to-be-determined date.

Pastor Frank Pomeroy, whose 14-year-old daughter Annabelle was killed in the shooting, told leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention it would be "too painful" to continue to worship in the church, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Pomeroy said he hopes to turn the site into a memorial for those who died in the shooting, and a new church will be built elsewhere on property owned by the church. (Read more)

5. Air Force Error Allowed Texas Gunman to Buy Weapons - New York Times

A day after a gunman massacred parishioners in a small Texas church, the Air Force admitted on Monday that it had failed to enter the man's domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the rifle he used to kill 26 people.

Under federal law, the conviction of the gunman, Devin P. Kelley, for domestic assault on his wife and toddler stepson - he had cracked the child's skull - should have stopped Mr. Kelley from legally purchasing the military-style rifle and three other guns he acquired in the last four years.

"The Air Force has launched a review of how the service handled the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction," the Air Force said in a statement.

The statement said Heather Wilson, the Air Force secretary, and Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, had ordered the Air Force inspector general to "conduct a complete review of the Kelley case."

The Air Force also said it was looking into whether other convictions had been improperly left unreported to the federal database for firearms background checks. (Read more)

6. Mattis tells Pentagon to 'find out what's going on' with failure to report Texas massacre suspect - Washington Times

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Tuesday he has instructed the Pentagon watchdog to "find out what's going on" with the Air Force's failure to report the Texas church shooting suspect's criminal history.

"If the problem is we didn't put something out, we'll correct that," said Mr. Mattis, as reported by The Associated Press.

The Air Force launched a review Monday after admitting that Holloman Air Force Base neglected to submit the criminal history of former Airman Devin Patrick Kelley to the FBI's National Criminal Information Center, the federal database for background checks involving firearms purchases.

Mr. Mattis, a retired Marine four-star general, said the Pentagon needs to be sure it has "the right direction" and must "define what the problem is." (Read more)

7. The Little Unknown Church Is Spreading the Good News Like It Never Dreamed Of - Election Forum

So very powerful here are the days of prayer, preaching and powerful worship in the community vigil - all Christ-centered.

One of the unique twists to this horrific incident was that CNN and other media outlets kept talking about the fact the church put its prayer services on YouTube. And they kept referring to the services, sometimes showing portions of the services.

When I first saw the video of last week's church service, only 200 people had viewed it. Now, more than 700,000 have seen it. You can watch it here.

8. 16 Shocking Realities Every Christian Should Know . . . But You Won't Find in the Media [Videos] - Election Forum

Evil invaded the church Sunday.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history and American church history.

A madman opened fire, killing 26 and wounding 20 in a small church in Texas.

If you only are getting your news from social media or the liberal biased media for updates, you wouldn't have seen some critical facts and events you should know about regarding this horrific slaughter of innocent men, women and children. (View videos here.)

9. Vigils, Benefits and Other Ways You Can Help those Affected by the Sutherland Springs Shooting - San Antonio

In light of the recent tragedy in Sutherland Springs, many are wondering how to help those in need. Here are a few ways we have found that include financial or blood donations, vigils and benefit events.

Legislative Program for next week

Mr. Speaker, on Monday, the House will meet at noon for morning hour and 2 p.m. for legislative business. Votes will be postponed until 6:30 p.m. On Tuesday and Wednesday the House will meet at 10 a.m. for morning hour and noon for legislative business. On Thursday, the House will meet at 9 a.m. for legislative business.
Mr. Speaker, the House will consider a number of suspensions next week, a complete list of which will be announced by close of business tomorrow.
In addition, the House will consider the conference report to accompany H.R. 2810, the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. This bipartisan agreement will strengthen our military, give our men and women in uniform a 2.4 percent pay raise, and ensure America's fighting forces have the resources they need to secure peace both at home and abroad.
I want to thank Chairman Thornberry and the entire House Committee on Armed Services for their hard work on this important bill.
Mr. Speaker, the House should also look forward to voting on the most significant tax reform in over three decades, H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, sponsored by Representative Kevin Brady.
America is among the highest taxed nations in the developed world. Americans pay more in taxes than we spend on housing, clothing, and food, combined.
Our current Tax Code is almost 2,600 pages long, with an additional 70,000 pages of forms and other regulations. That is just unacceptable.
We want to see economic growth in this country. Instead of “closed for business” signs, we want to see “now hiring” signs.
We want to double the standard deduction.
What does that mean?
It means, for every American, the first $12,000 of income for an individual is tax free; for a couple, that is $24,000 tax free.
We want to simplify the Tax Code so you can file it in minutes-- instead of spending weeks--on a form the size of a postcard.
We want to bring back the trillions of dollars of American wealth that is forced to sit overseas, have it come back to America and invest in Americans.
That is what voting for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will accomplish. That is why I look forward to the House passing this critical bill without delay.
Lastly, Mr. Speaker, additional legislative items are possible in the House. If anything is added to our schedule, I will be sure to inform all Members.
