Updates: The Dossier
1. Michael Goodwin: Did Hillary Clinton pull off the dirtiest dirty trick in US presidential history?- Fox News
For law enforcement, Congress and even journalists, exposing misdeeds is like peeling an onion. Each layer you remove gets you closer to the truth. So it is with the scandalous behavior of the FBI during its probe into whether President Trump's campaign conspired with Russia in 2016. One layer at a time, we're learning how flawed and dirty that probe was.
A top layer involves the texts between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her married lover, Peter Strzok, the lead agent on the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. They casually mention an "insurance policy" in the event Trump won the election and a plan for Strzok to go easy on Clinton because she probably would be their next boss. Those exchanges, seen in the light of subsequent events, lead to a reasonable conclusion that the fix was in among then-Director James Comey's team to hurt Trump and help Clinton.
Another layer involves the declassified House memo, which indicates the FBI and Justice Department depended heavily on the unverified Russian dossier about Trump to get a warrant to spy on Carter Page, an American citizen and briefly a Trump adviser.
The House memo also reveals that Comey and others withheld from the secret surveillance court key partisan facts that would have cast doubt on the dossier. Officials never revealed to the judges that the document was paid for by Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee or that Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the dossier, said he was "desperate that Donald Trump not get elected."

2. Nunes: Dems Preventing Release of Schiff Memo By 'Packing It Full of Sources, Methods' - Fox Insider
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" that Republicans are not intentionally blocking the release of the Democratic response to his FISA memo.
Nunes said Democrats crowed about the danger his own memo could mean for national security because it contained sensitive information, but that the Democrats are the ones who intentionally "packed their memo full of sources and methods" -- sensitive information about how the committee recruits sources and uncovers information.
Nunes said he would like to see the Democratic memo made public, as long as proper redactions are made. He confirmed Bartiromo's statement about the second memo, the production of which was led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), agreeing that it does not conflict with the main point of his own memo.
"The FBI used government resources to spy on a political enemy," Bartiromo said. (Read more)
3. Devin Nunes' media site down after reported 'attack' on server - The Hill
An online media outlet funded by Rep. Devin Nunes's (R-Calif.) campaign appeared to be down Sunday afternoon after what the site called "heavy traffic and an attack on our servers."
"The California Republican," the name of the site, posted on its Facebook page that those trying to reach the site may encounter an error message. As of late Sunday afternoon, the link to the site's home page redirects back to the outlet's Facebook page, and links to articles redirect to a broken Facebook link.
Politico reported earlier Sunday that the Nunes campaign has paid nearly $8,000 to a Fresno-area communications consultant since July for the site. "The California Republican" is listed as a "Media/News Company" on Facebook.
Anthony Ratekin, Nunes's chief of staff, declined to comment to Politico about the site. (Read more)
4. Sidney Blumenthal surfaces as behind-the-scenes figure behind Trump-Russia collusion claims - Fox News
A name long associated with the Clinton machine has surfaced as a behind-the-scenes figure in the Trump-Russia collusion story, prompting some to speculate that the investigation began at least partly as a dirty tricks operation.
Sidney Blumenthal, a Clinton loyalist from the days of Bill Clinton's presidency up through Hillary Clinton's presidential campaigns, was identified by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., as a source of anti-Trump information passed to the FBI through the State Department. The information is believed to have played a role in the FBI's launching of the collusion probe that is now in the hands of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. (Read more)
5. No survivors as Russian passenger plane crashes with 71 people on board - Jerusalem Online
A Saratov Airlines plane with 71 people on board has crashed shortly after takeoff, according to media reports, leaving no survivors. Local authorities are still looking into what caused the tragic incident.
A Russian passenger plane crashed on Sunday near Moscow shortly after takeoff, Interfax has reported. All of the 71 people on board were reportedly killed in the crash.
- Father, we ask that You use this time to bring a move of Your Spirit to the people of Russia, and comfort to the families. We pray that the cause of this crash will be known quickly.
- "I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them." (Ezekiel 36:27)
6. Russian source behind fake Trump dossier killed in Russian plane crash, Rosatom CFO also dead - PuppetStringNews
This Russian Buissnessman Sergei Millian who is a Russian source behind Hillary Clinton and the DNC's paid for Russia/Trump dossier from Fusion GPS used by Obama to get a FISA warrant on Trump goes by another name, that name is Sergey Panchenko. Sergey Panchenko just happens to be one of the dead passengers in today's Russian plane crash that has killed 71 people.
Also dead in this plane crash is Ivanov Vyacheslav the CFO of Rosatom who is involved in Hillary's Uranium One deal with Russia back in 2009 under Barack Obama. (Read more)

Focus on Israel
1. Putin Phone Call Ended Israeli Air Strikes - Honest Reporting
According to Haaretz, Israel was considering further military action against the Iranians and Syrians when Russian President Vladimir Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cool the guns.
"The official announcement by the Russian Foreign Ministry objected to the violation of Syrian sovereignty by Israel and totally ignored the event that provoked the eruption - the infiltration of an Iranian drone into Israeli airspace. In the conversation with Netanyahu a few hours later, Putin asked him to avoid moves that could lead to "a new round of dangerous consequences for the region."
The Russians are also concerned about the proximity of the Israeli bombings to sites where their soldiers and advisers are serving, including base T-4 near Palmyra, where the Iranian control post from which the anti-aircraft missile was fired was bombed.
2. Israeli official: Iran's aggression from Syria escalated faster than expected - Times of Israel
Israel has long been sounding the alarm over Iran's effort to entrench itself militarily in Syria, but the pace at which the Islamic Republic has escalated its aggressive behavior is surprising, a senior Israeli intelligence official said Sunday, a day after Iranian-Israeli hostility dramatically stepped up a gear.
"It happened more quickly than people expected," said Chagai Tzuriel, the director-general of the Intelligence Ministry. "The negative dynamic inherent in the Iranian presence is happening perhaps more quickly than people expected."
On Saturday, Israel shot down an Iranian drone after it entered Israeli airspace from Syrian territory. The Israeli air force then retaliated against Iranian targets in Syria, but one Israeli fighter jet was downed by Syrian forces on its return to Israel, triggering a second round of Israeli strikes, specifically aimed at Syrian air defenses.
"My view is that what happened yesterday didn't happen yesterday. It happened a long time ago," Tzuriel told The Times of Israel in his Jerusalem office. "I should not say, We told you so, but we surely told you so."
3. Netanyahu says he's talking with Trump about annexing areas of Judea and Samaria - World Israel News
At a Likud faction meeting on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his colleagues that he is in close contact with the Trump administration regarding the possibility of applying Israeli sovereignty to Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria.
This follows hard on the heels of Sunday's meeting of coalition heads in which it was decided to postpone an upcoming vote at the Ministerial Committee for Legislation on an annexation bill sponsored by Likud Member of Knesset Yoav Kisch. The official reason given for the delay was the aftermath of the Israel Air Force's incursion into Syria after an Iranian drone, launched from Syria, violated Israeli airspace over the weekend and was destroyed.
However, as Netanyahu has said many times before in connection with proactive moves regarding Judea and Samaria, it is of utmost importance to the prime minister to coordinate such decisions with the Americans.
4. Hamas ready to respond to 'any Zionist aggression' after Israeli-Syrian tensions escalate- Jerusalem Online
Hamas's armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced on Saturday evening that it is prepared to respond to "any Zionist aggression" in light of the escalated tensions between Israel and Syria. The spokesperson for the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades to Twitter to relay the message, according to Hamas's English website.
The tensions along Israel's northern border with Syria rapidly increased Saturday morning after an Iranian drone that entered Israel's airspace was shot down by the Israeli Air Force. In response, Israeli fighter jets targeted the control vehicle from which the drone was operated in the Syrian T-4 Airbase near Palmyra.
5. Ahead of election year, Knesset begins debate on 2019 budget - World Israel News
The 2019 state budget and Economic Arrangements Law - legislation that accompanies the budget - were submitted to the Knesset on Sunday, and the first of three votes is scheduled for Tuesday.
The budget is being discussed well in advance, as 2019 is slated to be an election year in Israel and the government is seeking to finalize the bill and ensure economic stability.
After weeks of intense negotiations between Finance Ministry officials and Knesset Legal Adviser Eyal Yinon and other Knesset officials, an agreement on the bill's content was reached by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) and Coalition Chairman David Amsalem (Likud).
The Daily Brief
1. Vanessa Trump taken to hospital as precaution after suspicious letter sent to her home- NBC
President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law was taken to a Manhattan hospital as a precaution on Monday after a suspicious letter containing an unidentified substance was sent to her apartment, senior law enforcement and city officials told NBC News.
The letter was addressed to Vanessa Trump's husband, Donald Trump Jr., the eldest child of the president and his ex-wife Ivana.
After the letter was opened, three people at the residence were taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center strictly as a precaution, the New York City Fire Department said.
There is no indication anyone suffered any injuries; the NYPD said the substance was deemed to be non-hazardous and was taken to a lab for further analysis.
"How disturbed must a person be to do what they did to a mother of five children?'' Michael Cohen, President Trump's personal attorney, said in a statement. "This dangerous and reckless act goes beyond political differences."
- Lord, we thank You that this was not a toxic substance. We pray once again for Your protection over the entire Trump family. We ask that You will reveal who did this quickly.
- "Arise, O Lord, do not let man prevail." (Psalm 9:19a)
2. Congress Votes to Repeal Independent Payment Advisory Board, Obamacare's "Death Panels"- Life News
Lost in the debate over the legislation funding the federal government is a key victory for pro-life advocates. While most of the focus has been over passing the legislation in the first place and a filibuster from Senator Rand Paul, pro-life advocates have been pushing to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board - which has been commonly and derisively known as death panels in Obamacare.
Thankfully it appears that those controversial death panels maybe no more.
The board, composed of 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats, was not only directed to limit Medicare spending, but also to limit private, nongovernmental spending on health care to a growth rate below medical inflation. Little attention was given to this more sweeping danger of rationing healthcare paid for with nongovernmental dollars. IPAB's powers went well beyond an effort to control Medicare spending. IPAB would have created drastic limits for the Department of Health and Human Services to impose on what Americans are allowed to spend out of their own funds to save their own lives and the lives of their families.
Officials with National Right to Life applauded the vote to eliminate the IPAB.
- Thank You, Father, for this removal of the board that could restrict proper care for Americans. We ask that You will continue to delete the Obamacare rules that have placed such burdens on so many.
- " It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil." (Isaiah 10:27)
3. Sinister Revelation: What the Nunes Memo and Planned Parenthood Have in Common- Operation Rescue
After much anticipation, the Nunes FISA memo was released on Friday that clearly showed that high-ranking officials within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Justice (DOJ) misused a so-called "Russian Dossier" that they knew had no credibility to obtain a warrant to spy on an associate of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and during Trump's initial days as a sitting president.
The anti-Trump elements within the FBI and DOJ also withheld crucial information from the secret FISC court, including the fact that the spurious dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Campaign. Also withheld from the court were connections between the shadowy organization that produced the fake dossier and an Associate Deputy Attorney General who was working on the investigation into Trump.
The source of that dossier was a company called Fusion GPS.
- Thank You, Lord for revealing this nefarious connection. We ask for the truth to be so widespread that those who advocate abortion will be ashamed.
- "Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor."(Psalm 35:4a)
4. President's $1.5T Infrastructure Plan to Shorten Permitting, Invest in Rural Areas, Train Workforce- Breitbart
President Donald Trump's $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan to be released on Monday should shorten permitting processes, invest in rural infrastructure, and train workers for the jobs produced in the process of improving America's infrastructure.
The $1.5 trillion cost of the new plan would come from a proposed incentives package and enhance federal loan programs, according to a senior administration official who briefed reporters on Saturday. Two hundred billion of that would be federal funds, 100 billion of which would go toward incentives. The federal government will offer matching funds to state and local governments spending on infrastructure.
"The President's vision is to have a permanent fix for the problems that plague us in terms of under-investing and the length of the permitting process," said the official who commented that the can has been kicked down the road for the past "couple of decades."
The official explained that "virtually 100 percent of major infrastructure in the U.S. requires some form of federal permitting," but the federal government funds just about 14 percent of infrastructure costs, and owns an even smaller percentage. The remaining 86 percent of the funding comes from state and local governments and the private sector.
- Thank you, Lord that this plan may bring more and more jobs, and fix many things that have been lacking across the country.
- "And they shall repair the old ruins, they shall raise up former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities." (Isaiah 61:4)
5. 400 Muslim, Christian, Jewish Leaders Sign 'Washington Declaration' for Religious Tolerance- Christian Post
Over 400 Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders from all over the world affirmed on Wednesday a new declaration calling for the global protection of religious minorities and marginalized communities.
The "Washington Declaration" was unveiled after two days of collaboration among hundreds of interfaith leaders who gathered for the three-day "Alliance of Virtue" conference organized by the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies and its leader, Shaykh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, a Saudi Arabian Islamic Studies professor.
"[W]e cannot love and serve God if we fail also to love our neighbors - including the strangers in our midst," the declaration reads. "Recognizing that our shared values are more important than our differences, and that we are strongest when we act together, we pledge to combine our best efforts to foster unity where there is discord, aid the impoverished, tend the vulnerable, heal the poor in spirit, and support measures that will ensure respect for the dignity of every human being. We will be guided in this endeavor by convictions that flow from our deepest theological understandings."
Along with calling for unity and the promotion of religious freedom, the declaration calls for four courses of action.
First, it calls for the establishment of an "Alliance of Virtue" to implement the Washington Declaration. Second, it calls for the provision of over 1 billion meals to feed impoverished and underserved communities throughout the world.
- Father, loving someone does not mean participating in their sin. There is only one path to heaven, and that is through Jesus Christ.
- "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture." (John 10:9)
6. ACLU Sues Feds over ICE Arrests in Oregon Courthouses - Breitbart
The American Civil Liberties Union in Oregon filed a lawsuit against the federal government this past week challenging the presence of immigration deportation officers at courthouses in the state.
Breitbart Texas reported on February 2 that the head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a directive ordering ICE officers to target criminal aliens appearing in courthouses.
U.S. Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan signed the order on January 10.
Director Homan wrote in the directive to law enforcement officials:
Federal, state, and local law enforcement officials routinely engage in enforcement activity in courthouses throughout the country because many individuals appearing in courthouses for one matter are wanted for unrelated criminal or civil violations.
Homan continued, "ICE's enforcement activities in these same courthouses are wholly consistent with longstanding law enforcement practices, nationwide."
- Lord we ask that this lawsuit be dismissed. These criminals have been allowed to be in the US with impunity. We pray for wisdom for ICE officials and for You to intervene in this situation.
- "Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord?"
(2 Chronicles 19:2b)
7. Russian 'hacker' arrested in Bangkok - Straits Times
A Russian man accused of co-running an international cybercrime network shuttered in a US-led crackdown this week has been arrested in Bangkok and will face extradition, Thai police said yesterday.
Mr Sergey Medvedev, 31, is accused of co-founding the "Infraud Organisation," an online network that stole and sold credit card and other personal identity data, causing US$530 million (S$705 million) in losses, the US authorities said.
On Wednesday, the US Department of Justice indicted 36 people on charges of racketeering conspiracy and other crimes for their roles in the crime syndicate. Thirteen defendants hailing from around the globe were arrested in the United States and six other countries - Australia, Britain, France, Italy, Kosovo and Serbia.
Mr Medvedev was not listed as one of the 36 suspects charged but was described in the indictment as co-administrator of Infraud with its Ukraine founder Svyatoslav Bondarenko, who remains at large.
Police armed with automatic weapons swooped on his Bangkok condo on Feb 2, making the arrest before US officials indicted other alleged members of the ring.
"(Medvedev) is now being detained at Bangkok Remand Prison waiting for US authorities to take him for prosecution in the US," said police officer Nuthapon Rattanamongkolsak from the Crime Suppression Division.
The US Embassy in Bangkok declined comment.
- Lord, thank You for the arrest of this hacker, and for the ongoing work to grab them.
- "You have a mighty arm; strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne." (Psalm 89:13)
8. CDC says at least 63 children have died of flu so far this season - Fox News
At least 63 children have died from the flu so far this season and there's no sign of it letting up as the number of deaths and hospitalizations continue to rise, officials said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acting Director Dr. Anne Schuchat said the center has seen "increased influenza-like activity, more hospitalizations and tragically, more flu-associated deaths in children and adults."
"I wish that there were better news this week, but almost everything we're looking at is bad news," Schuchat said.
Schuchat also said that the number of hospitalizations was the highest the center has ever encountered. This flu season, hospitalization rates have surpassed the nasty season of the winter of 2014-2015.
As of this week, the center reported 10 pediatric flu-related deaths, bringing the total number of children who have died from the virus to 63. (Read more)
- Father, we take authority over this flu, and command it to stop and dissipate in the Mighty Name of Jesus. This far and no farther!
- "This far and no farther will you come. Here your proud waves must stop!"
9. Miles from Winter Olympics, three Americans remain detained in North Korea - Fox News
Just miles from the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea -- where some observers continue to fawn over Kim Jong Un's sister and North Korea's "smile diplomacy" -- a trio of Americans remain detained in the Hermit Kingdom.
Concern has only grown for the three Korean-Americans -- Kim Hak Song, Kim Dong Chul and Tony Kim -- since the death of American college student Otto Warmbier last June after the he spent 17 months locked away in North Korea. And though advocates said they were given some hope during President Trump's State of the Union address, when the image of a North Korean defector defiantly holding his crutches in the air was met with rapturous applause, there's also a desire to see continued action and pressure applied against the rogue regime. (Read more)
- Lord, we pray for more and more attention to be made for those Americans that languish in North Korean prisons. We pray for their release quickly, and that You will strengthen them.
- "But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen and settle you."
(1 Peter 5:10)
10. North Korean defector describes 'life of hell' for Christians - Fox News
North Korean Choi Kwanghyuk is one of the lucky ones. The 55-year-old managed to escape from the work camp where he was sent after being targeted and persecuted by the government for his Christian faith. "We couldn't raise our voice during a service, we couldn't sing out loud during a worship . . . that was hard," Choi told Fox News through a translator. "Also, we had to hide so that other people could not see us." Despite having to hide his faith in plain sight while living in North Hamgyong province, Choi was still compelled to bring religion to others when he started an underground church.
"There were about nine people," he said. "I couldn't do mission work because we had to keep it secret that we had a church. If that information had leaked, we could have faced the death penalty." (Read more)
- Father, Your people are suffering tremendously under the cruel regime of Kim Jong-Il. We ask for great faith, strength, and hope for them as they must rely on You for everything. We thank You for every Believer in North Korea.
- "Blessed at those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:10)
11. Taliban invites Rand Paul to peace talks - Washington Times
The Taliban is extending an invitation to Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, to their political office in Doha, to discuss possible peace plans to end the 17-year Afghan war.
The invitation, proposed on the terror group's social media accounts under the moniker of the "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan," was extended in response to Mr. Paul's recent comments on the status of the war. "We invite the respectable U.S. Senator Rand Paul, in his official capacity to visit our political office in Doha for mutual talks," the Twitter post by the Information Committee of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan read. "We'll prove to Mr. Rand Paul, the immediate US withdrawal from [Afghanistan] will bring peace to our country & will enhance international security," the group added in the social media post.
During an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Sen. Paul lambasted Washington's continued investment in the Afghan conflict, with no clear endgame in sight. "The war in Afghanistan is costing us $50 billion a year. It's time to come home. There is no military victory there," Mr. Paul said. (Read more)
- Lord, this is a bad idea. Mr. Paul is not an official ambassador, and is often at odds with the President. We ask that You nix this plan so that we have a united front against the despicable acts of the Taliban.
- "Can two walk together unless they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3)

Tick Tock the prophetic clock
Israel and Iran are in the headlines as the situation in Syria heats up. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has issued a stern warning to Iran as he sees violence in Syria tied directly to Iran. Israel sees Iran as entrenching itself into the Syrian military conflict. Iran is feeding weapons and supplies to the terrorist group Hezbollah, which Israel believes will use the weaponry against it. Israel has carried out airstrikes against these supply chains while trying to stay out of the Syrian conflict, which has involved most of the Middle East end time players. Syria, Iran, Turkey, and Israel all have end time significance and Netanyahu has upped the end time ante by saying Israel will harm those who try to harm Israel.
According to the prophet Isaiah, 17:1, "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." Many point to this verse to speculate when and how Damascus will be destroyed. If we study the context of the prophecy, Chapter 10 begins with prophesying judgment on Assyria and Ephraim (one of the tribes of Israel) for attacking Israel. Damascus is named as one of the Assyrian's vassals. Damascus also is included in end time judgment accounts of Egypt, Babylon, Moab, Assyria, Ethiopia, Tyre, Philistia and others. This demonstrates the near and the far of prophesy. Some of this was fulfilled historically; other parts of it are yet to be fulfilled.
The gathering together in Syria of many of the nations involved in the Ezekiel 38 prophecy about a colossal end time battle points to important prophetic implications found in the Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 8 prophecies where two current opposing powers, Iran (Persia) and Turkey (Magog), are facing one another. Currently, Iran has control over much of Iraq and Syria. Turkey is counterbalancing that control through ISIS and pressure from its allies, including the US and European Union. For Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 8 to be fulfilled, Turkey and Iran must come into alignment. We may be seeing this playing out as these nations and their proxies face one another in Syria.
Netanyahu's warning of Iran and the stirring of all these end times forces gathered in Syria may well be moving the prophecy clock forward. We know that Syria in general and Damascus in particular are part of an end time alignment. Isaiah 17: 7, in describing the burden of Damascus, says, "At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel." This is consistent with "Day of the Lord" prophecies throughout the ancient prophets and the Revelation speaking about all who experience this event will know that God is God, he is Lord of Lords. Yes, man will participate in these events, but the end result is the supernatural evidence and power of the one true God.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Epic LGBT vs Christian Battle Took Place On A College Campus And You Won't Believe Who Won
College Universities are notorious for backing LGBT students and discriminating against conservatives. In fact, most conservative groups don't stand a chance on college campuses, and if a group happens to be Christian, forget it. And when one Christian group refused to let an openly homosexual person run for a leadership position, the University retaliated in a major way. But instead of bowing down and giving up, this Christian group fought back, and you won't believe the end result.
The controversy started when an openly homosexual activist wanted to be in charge, yet refused to follow the group's guidelines, which stated they believed sexual acts were reserved for heterosexual marriages.
And in typical leftist fashion, he threw a fit, claiming he was being "discriminated" against, for not being able to run for leadership in a group - even though he disagreed with everything the group stood for.
And even worse, the University backed him off, and kicked the group off campus.
But the Christian group scored a major victory, and this latest win has restored some faith in the justice system.
. . . (Go here to read details of court's decision)
While this Christian group scored a major victory, sadly the stories don't always end this way.
Hopefully other Christian groups across the country will be empowered by this story and stand up to LGBT thugs on their college campus.
