Breaking News from North Korea!

North Korea moves 3 detained Americans to hotel, reports say;
Trump says 'Stay tuned!'

Three Americans who have been detained in North Korea reportedly have been relocated ahead of the upcoming planned summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Trump on Wednesday night tweeted that "the past Administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a North Korean Labor camp, but to no avail. Stay tuned!"

Korean-Americans Kim Hak Song, Kim Dong Chul and Tony Kim were moved in early April from a labor camp to a hotel near Pyongyang, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported, citing an activist. The move reportedly came following direction from top authorities.
Tony Kim, also known as Kim Sang Duk, 59, was a teacher at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology when detained by North Korean authorities at Pyongyang International Airport on April 22, 2017.

A month later, he was allegedly accused of "committing criminal acts of hostility aimed to overturn [North Korea.]"

Kim Hak Song, 55, also worked at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology before his detention on May 6, 2017. He was detained on suspicion of committing "hostile acts" against the country's government.
Kim Dong Chul, 64, was arrested in October 2015 and has been serving a 10-year term with hard labor for alleged espionage.

It's been reported that Chul was a pastor, and in his public "confession," Kim said he was a spy for the South Korea intelligence service and was trying to spread Christianity among North Koreans.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean leader Kim reportedly discussed the Americans recently when Pompeo visited the North in his role as CIA director.

Trump and Kim are expected to meet by the end of May or early June. Trump earlier this week said he may favor meeting on the Demilitarized Zone, but said meeting in Singapore was also being considered. (Read more)

- Father God, we thank You for this wonderful report, and we stand in agreement that the momentum towards the release of these three American prisoners in North Korea would not cease until this has, indeed, come to pass. Thank You, Lord, amen.

- "And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord." (Psalm 27:6)

1. Netanyahu: Abbas peddles the 'most contemptible anti-Semitic slogans'- Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders condemned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday as an anti-Semite for a speech in which he suggested that the Holocaust was caused by the "social behavior" of European Jews.

Abbas "made another anti-Semitic speech," Netanyahu said in a statement, accusing the PA leader of recycling "the most contemptible anti-Semitic slogans.

"Apparently a Holocaust-denier remains a Holocaust-denier," Netanyahu said, alluding to Abbas's 1982 doctoral dissertation, and called on the international community to condemn the speech and its expression of an anti-Semitism "whose time has come to disappear off the face of the earth."

2. PLO official: Abbas didn't deny the Holocaust - Israel National News

Senior Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official Saeb Erekat on Wednesday refuted claims that Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas denied the Holocaust in a speech he gave at a gathering of the Palestinian National Council.

"Abu Mazen did not deny the massacres caused to the Jews, including the Holocaust," Erekat said in a statement quoted by Yediot Aharonot. "Abu Mazen believes in peace, negotiations and the establishment of two states that live in peace in security and in good neighborliness in accordance with his vision of peace, which he presented to the Security Council," Erekat added.

3. Iranian defense minister warns of 'surprise response' to exposure of nuclear archives - Israel Hayom

Iranian Defense Minister Amir Khatami warned Tuesday that his country will mount a "surprising response" to Israel's exposure of its nuclear archives and cautioned the "Zionist regime to stop its dangerous behavior."

Khatami echoed other regime officials attempts to downplay the importance of the documents revealed by Israel on Monday and said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's allegations that Iran has been lying to the international community are "baseless." Khatami said Israel has "moved away from Western logic," and that Israel should be wary of a situation in which Iran decides to "resort to strategies outside its strategy of restraint." "This is our warning to the regime occupying Jerusalem and its supporters: Stop your dangerous behavior. The Iranian response will be surprising and you will regret it," Khatami said.

4. UN Follows EU, U.S. in Blasting Abbas for 'Contemptuous anti-Semitic Slurs'

The European Union and the United Nations' Mideast envoy on Wednesday condemned remarks by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as "unacceptable" after he suggested in a speech that Jews were historically persecuted because of their involvement in money-lending and banking.

Citing books written by various authors, Abbas argued: "They say hatred against Jews was not because of their religion, it was because of their social profession. So the Jewish issue that had spread against the Jews across Europe was not because of their religion, it was because of usury and banks."

5. Islamic Jihad accuses Abbas of sanctioning Gaza - Israel National News

Khader Habib, a senior member of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group in Gaza, on Tuesday rejected the initiative of Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas to convene an international conference, attended by Israel, in a bid to settle the conflict between the sides.

Abbas presented the initiative at the meeting of the Palestinian National Council in Ramallah. Abbas "insists on continuing the path of the diplomatic process and bringing about failure," Habib said in an interview with Hamas website Al-Risala. He added that the PA chairman is "striving to revive the two-state solution in a way that will enable Israel to establish facts on the ground at the expense of the Palestinian people", stressing that national unity is the only way to deal with the diplomatic process.

The Daily Brief

1. Mueller raised possibility of presidential subpoena in meeting with Trump's legal team - LMT online

In a tense meeting in early March with the special counsel, President Donald Trump's lawyers insisted he had no obligation to talk with federal investigators probing Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. But Special Counsel Robert Mueller responded that he had another option if Trump declined: He could issue a subpoena for the president to appear before a grand jury, according to four people familiar with the encounter. Mueller's warning - the first time he is known to have mentioned a possible subpoena to Trump's legal team - spurred a sharp retort from John Dowd, then the president's lead lawyer. "This isn't some game," Dowd said, according to two people with knowledge of his comments. "You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States."

Should Mueller seek to compel Trump's testimony using a subpoena, a legal battle could ensue that could delay the investigation and force the issue into the courts, potentially to the Supreme Court. Trump's team could argue that Mueller was seeking information about the president's private conversations that are protected by executive privilege or that a grand jury interview would place an unnecessary burden on the president's ability to run the country. Rosenzweig, a senior fellow at the R Street Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, said judges generally like to accommodate a president because he has to be free to "manage the affairs of the world and deal with nuclear war without having to worry about whether he has to show up for an interview the next day." (Read more)

- Father, we pray You will settle this investigation and expose all malfeasance by political operatives.

-This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us-whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him. (1 John 5:14-15)

2. Trump: 'At Some Point I Will Have No Choice But to Use the Powers Granted to the Presidency' - CNS News

In a series of indignant tweets on Wednesday morning, President Trump again condemned the "Russia hoax," the Mueller investigation, and the failure of investigators to give requested information to Congress. In his most recent tweet, President Trump said he may have to "get involved.": "A Rigged System - They don't want to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal 'justice?' At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!" the president tweeted at mid-morning.

The president has both pardoning power and the power to fire anyone in the Executive branch. In two earlier tweets on Wednesday morning, President Trump reacted to all those open-ended questions Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask him, indicating his reply to Mueller will be "no." "'The questions are an intrusion into the President's Article 2 powers under the Constitution to fire any Executive Branch Employee,'" Trump tweeted around 9:30 a.m.

President Trump previously has said he wants to speak to Mueller, but some legal experts, including diGenova and Alan Dershowitz, insist it would be a mistake. Dershowitz has mused that the Mueller investigation apparently has discovered no criminal case involving Trump and Russia, so Mueller is trying to build an obstruction of justice case against the president instead, by asking questions that go to motive and intent. (Read more)

- Father, we are grateful President Trump is a fighter and refuses to give any ground to his enemies. We pray he will act only with Your wisdom and in Your timing.

- He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure. (Isaiah 33:6)

3. Manafort Lawyers Say Special Counsel Unable To Produce Evidence Of Russia Contacts - Daily Caller

The special counsel's office has told lawyers for Paul Manafort that it does not have evidence of any contacts between the former Trump campaign chairman and Russian government and intelligence officials. That's at least according to Manafort's attorneys, who disclosed details of the interactions in court papers filed on Monday night. The lawyers say they want a hearing to look into government officials' leaks to the media regarding Manafort, a longtime political consultant who has been indicted on money laundering and bank fraud charges.

"By their actions, it is self-evident that the objective of these government sources was to create unfair prejudice against Mr. Manafort and thereby deprive him of his Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights," wrote Manafort lawyers Kevin M. Downing and Thomas E. Zehnle. The court filing, submitted in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, lists seven news articles about the Manafort investigation that rely on U.S. government sources. "The government-sourced leaks concerning surveillance of Mr. Manafort with foreign individuals is particularly troubling," the attorneys wrote. Downing and Zehnle say that they have filed "multiple" requests for discovery with the special counsel's office for any evidence of Manafort's contacts with Russian government or intelligence officials.

They wrote that the special counsel's office, which is being led by Robert Mueller, "has not produced any materials to the defense - no tapes, notes, transcripts or other material evidencing surveillance or intercepts of communications between Mr. Manafort and Russian intelligence officials, Russian government officials (or any other foreign officials.)" The lawyers assert that "the natural implication of this is that these government leaks were intentionally designed to create a false narrative in order to garner support for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate Mr. Manafort for purportedly coordinating with Russian intelligence/government officials despite the lack of any such evidence." (Read more)

- Father, we pray the judge will hold the evidence against Paul Manafort to a very high standard and remove everything that is tainted by false charges.

-A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any iniquity or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed. (Deuteronomy 19:15)

4. Michael Caputo slams Senate intel panel in interview - CNN

Former Donald Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo slammed the Senate Intelligence Committee's Russia investigation on Tuesday, charging that the probe has cost him $125,000 and is forcing him to move from the Buffalo area in order to pay off legal bills. Caputo was interviewed behind closed doors on Tuesday as part of the committee's investigation into 2016 Russian election meddling. He was also interviewed last year by the House Intelligence Committee. "Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money -- more than $125,000 -- and making a visceral impact on my children," Caputo said in a prepared statement that he delivered at the end of the Senate interview, which was provided to CNN.

"Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that," added Caputo, who lives in East Aurora, New York. Caputo, who advised the Trump campaign on communications in 2016, has long insisted he has no information about collusion between Trump's team and Russia. Caputo and other Trump associates have hired attorneys to deal with the various Russia investigations in Congress and by special counsel Robert Mueller, often at a high price tag.

In his statement, Caputo accused a former Senate Intelligence Committee Democratic staffer, Daniel Jones, of leading an effort to invest $50 million into continuing the Fusion GPS investigation into the opposition research dossier on Trump and Russia. Caputo claimed that Jones, who is now president of the Penn Quarter Group, fed the information to the committee. "What America needs is an investigation of the investigators," Caputo said. "I want to know who is paying for the spies' work and coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump? I want to know who Dan Jones is talking to across the investigations -- from the FBI, to the Southern District of New York, to the OSC, to the Department of Justice, to Congress." (Read more)

- Father, intervene! Come with true justice and remove the accusers from our midst.

- Let my accusers be clothed with dishonor, And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe. (Psalm 109:29)

5. Condi Rice to Haspel Critics: You Weren't There on September 11 - Townhall

Gina Haspel's nomination for CIA director has not been easy. The current deputy director of the agency faces critics from both sides of the political aisle who are shining a spotlight on her role in the enhanced interrogation techniques program that was used during the George W. Bush administration. That program, which included what critics call harsh tactics, were employed in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wrote a whole op-ed about why Haspel, who was "complicit in torture," is wrong for the role of CIA chief.

Condoleezza Rice, who was national security advisor at the time of the tragedy, defended Haspel on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning. She shamed critics who are condemning the nominee without knowing anything about what it's like to lead during such a unique national crisis. "I am offended that people who were not there and who didn't have to make the tough decisions now want to second-guess," Rice said. "We're an open society. People can debate. There's nothing wrong with that. But the fine professionals who kept us safe deserve our praise, not our criticism." Former CIA Dir. Michael Hayden also jumped to the nominee's defense. Haspel is the "absolute, best choice to be the director of the CIA, he said. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up the CIA Director nominee, Gina Haspel, and pray for her confirmation.

- Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. (Proverbs 31:31)

6. New anti-DACA case draws favorable judge - Washington Times

Texas has already caught its first break in its new lawsuit to stop the Obama-era DACA program, after the case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen. A Republican appointee to the bench, Judge Hanen has already ruled against a similar deportation amnesty in 2015. And during that case he expressed skepticism about DACA itself, saying it seemed to stray beyond the bounds of discretion then-President Obama had claimed in setting up the program.

Judge Hanen, whose courtroom is in southern Texas, was one of the first to spot a surge of illegal immigrant children headed to the border in 2013 - a surge which crested in 2014 with the UAC wave that overwhelmed the Obama administration, and whose repercussions are still being felt today with the latest caravan of illegal immigrants. He will now oversee the latest in an ever-expanding and complicated legal battle over DACA, which Mr. Obama created in 2012 to grant tentative legal status to illegal immigrant "Dreamers." DACA was controversial from the start, and President Trump attempted to phase it out. (Read more)

- Father, we pray the legality of DACA will be sorted out by the courts quickly, and we ask for legislation to reform our immigration system.

- Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. (Leviticus 19:15)

7. Haley Puts UN On Notice: 'This Is Not An Acceptable Return On Our Investment' - Daily Caller

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley followed up on her threat to "take names" Tuesday after the release of the State Department's annual report detailing the voting records of member nations. "This is not an acceptable return on our investment," Haley said in a statement.

Haley, upon learning that several of the ten member nations who voted with the United States the least were still receiving U.S. aid, was not satisfied. "The American people pay 22 percent of the UN budget - more than the next three highest donor countries combined. In spite of this generosity, the rest of the UN voted with us only 31 percent of the time, a lower rate than in 2016. That's because we care more about being right than popular and are once again standing up for our interests and values."

Among those nations that voted with the U.S. the least, there were several which are still receiving monetary aid. Zimbabwe, for example, received $58 million in aid but didn't vote with the U.S. once. Syria and South Africa also received tens of millions in aid despite rarely voting with the U.S. "When we arrived at the UN last year, we said we would be taking names, and this list of voting records speaks for itself," she said. "President Trump wants to ensure that our foreign assistance dollars - the most generous in the world - always serve American interests, and we look forward to helping him see that the American people are no longer taken for granted." (Read more)

- Father, we pray Ambassador Haley will be effective in leveraging foreign assistance to translate into votes of support for priorities of the United States.

- Woe to the obstinate children," declares the Lord, "to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin
(Isaiah 30:1)

8. 'Stand for the Second': Students across USA plan 16-minute walkout to back Second Amendment - USA Today

Students at schools across the nation plan to walk out of their classrooms Wednesday to show their support for the Second Amendment.

The national event, called "Stand for the Second," was started by New Mexico high schooler Will Riley. Students say they will walk out of classes for 16 minutes. Organizers say they expect students in more than 40 states to take part.

The event comes just over a month after students around the country staged a walkout aimed at stopping gun violence and honoring the students killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., in February.

Riley, 18, a senior at Carlsbad High School, told the Carlsbad Current-Argus last month that media reports on the student gun protests prompted him to organize "Stand for the Second." (Read more)

- Father, we thank You that, in our nation, there are some students who have not yet fallen prey to the lies of the humanist agenda -- including the lie that we must now institute gun control. We thank You for each one who walked out of school yesterday, to "protest the protest." We ask that You would cause their voices to be heard across the land, that the media would render truthful accounts of their actions and intentions, and that each participant would be protected under Your Sovereign Hand. In Your name, we offer praise, amen.

- "Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just . . ." (Psalm 7:9)

9. Tehran terrified, U.S. expert says - Jerusalem Post

The Iranian regime is "quaking in its boots," after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed secret nuclear-program documents appropriated by the Mossad, an ex-Pentagon Iran expert told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday. Harold Rhode spent 28 years at the Pentagon and studied in Iran before the 1979 revolution there. The fluent Farsi speaker, who is now associated with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, said his view stems from a wave of recent Iranian infighting. He said when things are not going well in Iran, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps officials and rival ayatollahs start attacking each other in a public blame game that expresses how exposed and vulnerable they feel their rule has become.

Rhode named senior Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli from northern Iran who has been lashing out at rivals, saying their corruption was bringing down the regime. Israel "humiliated the Iranian government by capturing all of this material," Rhode said, and many Iranians were laughing at the Islamic regime on social media.

While the global media stopped covering protests against the regime months ago, he noted, the protests are still churning. The former Pentagon official said that when he asked Iranian friends for a list of where the protests were happening, they said protests were so widespread it would be easier to make a shorter list of cities where they were not happening. He also said the audacious Mossad raid, "proves what they think of Jews - that they are the smartest people on earth and can do anything."

Rhode said the average Iranian "would like nothing more than to wake up and have this nightmare regime over with and again proudly be accepted as members of the international community." (Read more)

- Father, we pray for an end to the oppressive Iranian regime and for a resurgence of true freedom for the people of Iran.

- It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)

10.Trade war? Trump team to use any means to bust open China's barriers to American exports - Washington Times

President Trump dispatched a team of top Cabinet officials to high-stakes trade talks in China with instructions to go to the mat to burst open what he says are the communist country's barriers to American exports and investments. In a key test of Mr. Trump's campaign promises to address the gaping Chinese trade surplus with the U.S., Commerce Secretary Wilbur L. Ross Jr. said Tuesday that the marching orders mean the U.S. must be willing to sustain some short-term economic hits and tempt a trade war if that's what it takes to wring concessions from Beijing. "If you just do nothing, we know how that turns out: more and more trade deficits," he said. "That's not acceptable to this administration."

The talks, which will be led by Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, stem from Mr. Trump's aggressive moves on trade, including ordering tariffs on $150 billion worth of Chinese goods. The president said the tariffs fought what he called China's unfair trade practices, its subsidies of key industries and companies, and the theft of U.S. intellectual property. The president's negotiating team in China includes U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Branstad, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro and the president's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow. The talks are scheduled for Thursday and Friday in Beijing.

As it opens negotiations with China, the administration is also trying to wrap up a replacement for the 24-year-old NAFTA, which Mr. Trump has harshly criticized since he was a presidential candidate. The political calendar in all three countries is putting even more pressure on the negotiators. If the negotiators reach a deal in two weeks, that would clear a path to sign an agreement before Mexico's presidential election July 1. The outcome of the election could cancel whatever deal is close at hand. (Read more)

- Father, we pray this mission to redefine our trade relationship with China will be very successful. Give Secretary Mnuchin great wisdom and favor.

- When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone's way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them. (Proverbs 16:7)

​​​​​​​​​The whirling winds of prophecy

The prophets of the Bible speak of a day when the traditional enemies of Israel will come against the country "like a cloud to cover the land (Ezekiel 38:9, 16)" and God will rebuke the nations that rush against Israel "like a rolling thing before the whirlwind (Isaiah 17:13, 41:16)." Revelation 13:7 speaks of the beast, "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them." These are end time prophecies that indicate there will be nations led by the beast (Gog, the Assyrian, King of the North, the prince that shall come, little horn, etc.), against Israel. The world political stage elevating Islam in the recent decade has emboldened these players as the whirling winds of prophecy are forming up.

Gog of Magog (Turkey), chief prince of Meshech (Turkey) and Tubal (Turkey) leads Persia (Iran), Libya, Ethiopia (Sudan), Gomer (Turkey), Togarmah (Turkey), Sheba (Saudi Arabia) and Dedan (Saudi Arabia) against Israel to "take a spoil and to take a prey (Ezekiel 38:12)." This coalition originates and is led from areas which are currently in Turkey. Turkey is becoming increasingly radical. The Gatestone Institute reports that at an April 11 event to unveil the 2017 European Islamophobia Report, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called on European governments to criminalize criticism of Islam as "a hate crime and a form of racism." In essence, If adopted in Europe, Jews and Christians could be killed or incarcerated for their belief in the Bible, as they are in many Islamic nations today.

The leader of the terrorist-backed Palestinian Liberation Organization/Palestinian Authority singled out Jews as the cause of growing anti-Semitism in Europe. AP reports "In rambling remarks that were part of a lengthy speech to the PLO parliament on Monday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was the Jews' "social function," including money-lending, that caused animosity toward them in Europe, citing what he said were books by Jewish authors. He also portrayed the creation of Israel as a European colonial project, saying "history tells us there is no basis for the Jewish homeland." His remarks prompted an immediate response from the US Ambassador to Israel, "To all those who think Israel is the reason that we don't have peace, think again."

These are just two examples of what is happening around the Middle East to influence Europe (the West) against Jews and Christians. They are stirring up trouble and trying to establish a narrative that is friendly to the end time beast system and diabolically against Jews, Christians, and Israel. Interestingly enough, the very countries that are listed as coming against Israel are part and parcel to this stirring. Turkey's leaders are very vocal about those who resist Islam. Also remember that Turkey and Iran both are ardent supporters of the "Palestinian" movement to divide the land of Israel and to drive the Jews into the sea. These two events, while seemingly unrelated, are part of the whirling winds of prophecy.

​​​​​Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
