President Trump Meets Vladimir Putin

President Trump Meets Vladimir Putin

Prayer Request:

Only our God knows all that has transpired today during this historic, two-hour meeting, behind closed doors in which only President Trump and Vladimir Putin -- along with their translators -- were present. As we list some of the headlines below, we encourage all of our readers to simply lift our tongues in praise to our Lord, for He is in control in His Kingdom, amen.

- "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)

1. Trump-Putin summit: US leader hails 'good start' in Helsinki - BBC

US President Donald Trump says his face-to-face meeting in Helsinki with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin was "a good start".

After two hours of closed-door talks the two leaders went into a working lunch with their senior advisers. Speaking earlier, Mr Putin said it was time to discuss "difficult multi-national issues".

Relations between Russia and the West were severely strained by Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014. Russia is also accused of meddling in the 2016 US election, a claim it strongly denies.

Speaking before Monday's much-anticipated summit, Mr Trump said he hoped for an "extraordinary relationship" and blamed US-Russia tensions on previous administrations.

Some US politicians had called for the summit to be cancelled after 12 Russian military intelligence agents were charged on Friday with hacking the presidential campaign of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. (Read more)

3. Trump at Summit: 'Getting Along With Russia Is a Good Thing, Not a Bad Thing' - CNSNews.com

President Donald Trump began his first one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in front of the cameras, sitting down for a brief photo-op and congratulating Putin on "a really great World Cup, one of the best ever, from what everybody tells me."

Putin, slouched in his chair, was impassive, as Trump outlined what the two men will discuss:

Most importantly we have a lot of good things to talk about and things to talk about. We have discussions on everything from trade to military to missiles to nuclear to China - we'll be talking a little bit about China, our mutual friend, President Xi.

I think we have great opportunities together -- as two countries that frankly, we have not been getting along very well for the last number of years. I've been here not too long, and it's getting close to two years, but I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship. (Read more)

4. Trump blasts Mueller probe, Putin denies meddling as leaders tout summit as 'success' - Fox News

President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin touted their highly anticipated summit Monday as a success, though allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election quickly took center stage at a joint press conference.

Putin again emphatically denied meddling in the 2016 election, but also offered to cooperate in the special counsel probe-with a catch.

Trump, meanwhile, made clear that he "spent a great deal of time talking" about the issue of election meddling during their one-on-one meeting. But he went on to repeatedly slam Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe as a "disaster for our country," and assert there was "no collusion." He suggested the claims were being used by Democrats who "should have been able to win" as an excuse.

"To say it one time again, and I say it all the time, there was no collusion. I didn't know the president. There was no one to collude with, and there was no collusion with the campaign," Trump said during the joint press conference. "We ran a brilliant campaign and that's why I'm president." (Read more)

5. Putin: Mueller Can 'Be Present' While Russian Officials Question Intelligence Officers Charged with Hacking DNC Computers - CNSNews.com

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday offered to allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller and U.S. officials to travel to Russia to witness the questioning of the 12 Russian intelligence officers that were indicted by a U.S. grand jury last week of hacking the computers of the Democratic National Committee in an effort to interfere with the 2016 election.

"Now let's get back to the issue of these 12 alleged intelligence officers of Russia. I don't know the full extent of the situation, but President Trump mentioned this issue, and I will look into it," Putin promised during a joint press conference with President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland.

Putin cited a treaty dating back to 1999, called the Mutual Assistance on Criminal Cases, saying Russia has "an acting and existing agreement between the United States of American and the Russian Federation."

"This treaty is in full effect. It works quite efficiently. On average, we initiate about 100, 150 criminal cases upon request from foreign states," the Russian leader said. (Read more)

6. Trump on Russia Interference: Why Didn't FBI Take DNC Server and Where Are Clinton's 33,000 Emails? - CNSNews.com

When asked about U.S. intelligence claims that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. elections and whether he would call on Russian President Vladimir Putin to not interfere again, President Donald Trump said he wants to know why the FBI did not seize the Democratic National Committee's server, which was allegedly hacked by Russian actors, and he wants to know why the FBI has not tracked down Hillary Clinton's apparently missing 33,000 emails.

. . . but I really do want to see the [DNC] server. I have confidence in both parties. I really believe that this will probably go on for a while."

"But I don't think it can go on without finding out what happened to the sever," said Trump. "What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They're missing. Where are they?" (Read more)

7. Sen. John Cornyn: Russian Meddling Did Not Change Outcome of 2016 Election: 'It Would Be Like Spitting into a Raging Ocean' - CNSNews.com

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday that last week's indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking the computers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in an attempt to interfere in the 2016 election did not affect the outcome of the election.

"Well, Russia's long been engaged in trying to undermine confidence in our democracy. It's just that they have -- their game has now risen to the point where they actually had an impact. Obviously, we wouldn't be talking about this if they didn't have an impact, and so we better wake up, because this is a warning shot for our next elections, and we better be ready," Cornyn said when asked whether he considered it an act of war.

"On the other hand, I agree with my friend Trey Gowdy and Jonathan Turley, who wrote a piece recently, who said this didn't have an impact in the -- in terms of the outcome of the election. It would be like spitting into a raging ocean," he said.

"But this is serious, and I agree that Russians did meddle in our elections, and we better be prepared for the next time. But, again, there is no indication that it had an outcome -- changed the outcome of the election," Cornyn added. (Read more)

Focus on Israel

1. Exchange of blows with Hamas isn't over, prime minister says during visit to south - Israel Hayom

Israel has been waging a fierce battle against terrorism for 100 years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday on a visit to southern Israel, which was the target of some 200 mortars and rockets over the weekend before a cease-fire took effect. "Right now, this is the place where Islamist terrorist meeting the Jewish state, and we are determined to win. It involves trading blows, and they aren't over yet," Netanyahu told a group of residents.

Netanyahu said he had just come from an "excellent" meeting with heads of Gaza-adjacent communities and told them that Israel was continuing to fight. "Just like we are now stopping the threat of the [terror] tunnels and like we successfully worked to stop the mass breaches of the security fence [during the ongoing Gaza border riots of the past few months], we have instructed the IDF to contain and put a stop to the kite and balloon terrorism, and we are in the middle of that process," the prime minister said.

Netanyahu added that it was important for Hamas to realize that it was up against a "steel wall" and that wall was made up of a determined government, strong local leadership, and Zionist settlement that the government would continue to support.

2. Israel strikes two Hamas posts in response to incendiary aerial devices - Jerusalem Post

A projectile launched from Gaza in the direction of Israel fell short of the border in the Gaza Strip on Monday, hours after Israel struck Hamas positions in Gaza. The mortar, which set off rocket sirens in communities in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council near the northern border of the strip, reportedly caused two audible explosions.

Earlier in the afternoon, the Israel Air Force struck two Hamas positions in northern Gaza after Palestinians had launched incendiary balloons into southern Israel earlier in the day. According to Palestinian sources, the drone strike occurred near Beit Hanoun and left several people wounded.

The strikes come two days into a fragile ceasefire between Israel and Hamas after it launched 200 mortars and rockets into southern Israel and Israel retaliated by striking over 40 Hamas targets across the Gaza Strip.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday visited the southern Israeli city of Sderot and told reporters that there would be no ceasefire with Hamas unless aerial incendiary devices stop.

3. Hamas warns Israel of 'dangerous consequences' over Gaza crossing closure - Times of Israel

The Hamas terrorist group on Monday warned Israel of "dangerous consequences" over its fresh restrictions at a commercial crossing with the Gaza Strip, as the administrators of the Rafah passage linking Egypt to the Palestinian enclave announced its crossing would also be shuttered in both directions on Tuesday.

"The Israeli occupation's closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing and depriving Gaza from the most simple necessities of life is a crime against humanity that will be added to its list of crimes at the expense of the Palestinian people including those living in the Strip," said Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum in a statement posted on the organization's official website.

4. Knesset approves 'Breaking the Silence Law'- Israel National News

The "Breaking the Silence Law", initiated by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and MK Shuli Mualem-Refaeli (Jewish Home) was approved by the Knesset overnight Monday in its second and third readings.

The law states that extreme leftist organizations that operate against IDF soldiers and against the goals of state education will not be able to enter school grounds and meet with students.

The law authorizes the Minister of Education to determine the rules that will prevent entry to educational institutions of "external elements who act against the goals of education and against the Israel Defense Forces."

5. Israel says Russia working with pro-Iranian militias near Syria-Israel border -Times of Israel

Despite claims by Israeli sources that Russia is acting to distance Iran from the Israeli-Syrian border, the recent Syrian army campaign in the area of Daraa, near the border, saw cooperation between the Russians army, Syrian forces, Hezbollah, and pro-Iranian militias. Israeli military sources confirmed the information. The regime's assault, which began in mid-June, was directed at defeating rebel forces controlling the area. The Russians provided an aerial umbrella for the land forces acting on behalf of President Bashar Assad, which included pro-Iranian militias and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah.

According to claims by the Syrian opposition, the operation included face-to-face meetings between representatives of the Russian army and commanders of pro-Iranian Shiite militias, which were held in areas just 30 kilometers (18.5 miles) from the Israeli border.

The Daily Brief

1. Trump Expands Ban on Foreign Aid Abortion Funding - Christian Post

Pro-life leaders are elated following President Trump's implementation of an executive order modernizing the Mexico City policy to further ensure that no foreign aid dollars will be used to fund organizations who perform abortions overseas.

The Trump administration implemented the renamed executive memorandum, called "Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance" which covers all foreign health assistance through government agencies like the State Department and USAID.

Days after taking office, President Donald Trump directed the secretaries of state and health and human services to implement a plan to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, which stops U.S. taxpayer funding of the abortion industry overseas. Monday's presidential memorandum approves the plan developed by the state department. (Read more)

- Thank You, Lord, for this action that ensures our hard-earned taxpayer funds will not be used to kill innocent children.

- "This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live." (Deuteronomy 30:19)

2. Federal judge pauses deportations of reunited families - CNN

A federal judge on Monday ordered the US government to temporarily pause deportations of reunited families to allow attorneys time to debate whether he should more permanently extend that order.

San Diego-based US District Court Judge Dana Sabraw addressed the issue at the top of a status hearing in a continuing family separations case filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Sabraw ordered the pause to allow for a full written argument on the ACLU's request to pause deportations of parents for a week after reunification.

The ACLU argued that the week would be necessary for parents to have time to fully consider the decision whether to have their children deported along with them. The ACLU's filing was made earlier Monday morning, and Sabraw gave the Department of Justice a week to respond. But in the meantime, he ordered a "stay" of deportations until that issue can be litigated. (Read more)

3. California Democratic Party snubs Feinstein, endorses rival - Washington Times

The California Democratic Party snubbed Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Saturday by handing its official endorsement and a badly needed boost to state Sen. Kevin de Leon, her long-shot Democratic challenger. In backing Mr. de Leon, a majority of the party's 360-member executive board ignored Ms. Feinstein's calls to stay neutral in the race. Her allies had warned an endorsement in the race would create an intraparty squabble that could detract from important down-ballot races.

Mr. de Leon has long been courting party activists and appealed to those seeking a fresh face and a more progressive senator to fight against President Trump. "Today's vote is a clear-eyed rejection of politics as usual in Washington, D.C.," Mr. de Leon said in a statement after the vote. "We have presented Californians with the first real alternative to the worn-out Washington playbook in a quarter-century."

A total of 217 delegates voted for Mr. de Leon, of Los Angeles, while 22 cast ballots for Mrs. Feinstein and 94 voted for no endorsement. (Read more)

- Father, as much as Ms. Feinstein is a problem liberal, this situation shows how far left the Democratic party has gone. We ask that You visit all who call themselves Democrats and change their hearts to learn Your ways. We ask this in Your Name, amen.

- "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it." (John14:14)

4. U.S. intel chief warns of devastating cyber threat to U.S. infrastructure - Reuters

The U.S. intelligence chief warned on Friday that the threat was growing for a devastating cyber assault on critical U.S. infrastructure, saying the "warning lights are blinking red again" nearly two decades after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Russia, China, Iran and North Korea are launching daily cyber strikes on the computer networks of federal, state and local government agencies, U.S. corporations, and academic institutions, said Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats. Of the four, "Russia has been the most aggressive foreign actor, no question," he said.

. . . Coats warned that the possibility of a "crippling cyber attack on our critical infrastructure" by a foreign actor is growing. He likened daily cyber attacks to the "alarming activities" that U.S. intelligence agencies detected before al Qaeda staged the most devastating extremist attack on the U.S. homeland on Sept. 11, 2001. "The system was blinking red. Here we are nearly two decades later and I'm here to say the warning lights are blinking red again," he said. (Read more)

- Almighty God, this is the day that we cry out to You, "We are not alone, because the Father God is with us." Thank You, thank You. We pray Your outstretched arm will hold back any cyber attack against the United States as our enemies gear up to hit us as a nation. Lord, send holy clouds of godly revival above this country that will seal our continual protection, and ensure the salvation of souls are born into the kingdom of God. We pray in the mighty Name of Jesus.

- "And they were astonished at His doctrine: for God's Word was with power."
(Luke 4:32)

5. Plutonium stolen from government contractor's car, feds have no idea where it is - NY Post

Government contractors left plutonium and radioactive cesium in the back seat of a car overnight - only to return the next morning to find someone had swiped the nuclear bomb-making materials, according to a new report.

A year later, the feds still have no idea where the deadly loot is, the San Antonio Express-News reports. The embarrassing theft happened while two guards working for the Department of Energy's Idaho National Laboratory were on their way to San Antonio, Texas, to pick up nuclear material from a lab there, according to the newspaper.

They'd brought small samples of the plutonium and cesium with them to help calibrate radiation detectors needed for the job - but left all of the materials in their rented Ford Expedition while they stopped for the night at a Marriott hotel in a dangerous neighborhood. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that You will reveal the location or disposition of this radioactive material. Let no harm come to anyone in America. In Your name, we pray, amen.

- "He reveals mysteries from the darkness And brings the deep darkness into light." (Job 12:22)

6. S.F. Mayor Says Her City is Drowning in Poop! - Daily Caller

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday.

Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco's mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to "clean up after themselves." "There is more feces on the sidewalks than I've ever seen growing up here," Breed told KNTV. "That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs - we're talking about from humans."

The streets of San Francisco are littered with a "dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces", KNTV's investigative team reported in February after surveying the city's streets.

"We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash," preschool teacher Adelita Orellana told KNTV. "Sometimes they ask what is it, and that's a conversation that's a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched." (Read more)

- Father the problem of homelessness affects many communities across the United States. We ask for a mighty move of Your Spirit to help them and bring wisdom to the leaders about how to address this problem.

- "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." (James 1:5)

7. New Mexico Threatens Homeschoolers Who Won't Jump Through Hoops - The Newman Report

State education bureaucrats in New Mexico are under fire nationwide after demanding that homeschool families sign "illegal" declarations agreeing that their "permission" to educate their own children could be revoked if they fail to follow bureaucratic decrees. Home-education groups and lawyers are urging families to ignore the demands.

The lawless demands came from the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED), as the state's government-education overlords are known, in a document referred to as "Statements of Understanding of Home School Parent/Family." In the form, homeschool parents are told that their children must do the same amount of hours as children in government schools, among other controversial elements.

If parents do not jump through all the hoops as commanded, "the department may order that a student attend a public school or a private school," reads the document. It goes on to threaten again that authorities may force parents to submit their children to state indoctrination if they do not comply with all the government's requirements.

But it is not clear that the declaration is legal. And home-education groups are urging parents to refuse to sign it. "We felt like this would be the least confrontational way to get the point across to the PED," said Cathy Heckendorn, a board member with the Christian Association of Parent Educators - New Mexico (CAPE-NM) that is fighting the battle in cooperation with the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). Read more.

- Father we pray your protection for all who home school their children in the face of the rampant evil invading the public schools. We ask that any actions against these parents be dismissed and ruled illegal.

- Please decree Psalm 91 over these families.

8. Twice-Deported Illegal Alien Sentenced to Prison for Stealing $350K in Gov't Benefits - CNSNews.com

Mexican national and two-time deportee Andres Avelino Anduaga was sentenced on July 13 to 37 months in federal prison for stealing over $350,000 in government benefits - federal, state, and local -- while impersonating an American citizen for over 30 years, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of California.

In addition to his 37-month sentence, Aduaga was ordered to repay $360,908.85 in restitution to the Social Security Administration, the California Department of Health Care Services and the County of San Diego.

"In 1980, Anduaga used a birth certificate belonging to a United States citizen to obtain a California Driver's License and a Social Security card," said the U.S. Attorney's Office in a statement. "Already a convicted felon, Anduaga used his new identity to commit a variety of crimes over the next 22 years." (Read more)

9. 3 Kansas City, Missouri, cops shot; gunman killed in standoff with police, officials say - Fox News

At least three police officers were shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the suspect was killed after a standoff with cops, officials said Sunday afternoon.

One of the three wounded officers was hit after police started to exchange gunfire with the unnamed suspect, The Kansas City Star reported.

Police told The Star that two undercover cops were working on an investigation at the Sky-Vu Motel, when they were shot around 12:15 p.m., and the suspect drove away from the scene, before ultimately entering the home. (Read more)

10. Bolton: US Troops Will Remain in Syria 'As Long As the Iranian Menace Continues' - CNSNews.com

Iran's involvement in Syria is expected to come up when President Trump talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. Ahead of the meeting, National Security Advisor John Bolton linked the continued presence of U.S. troops there with the "menace" posed by Iran in the region.

Bolton was asked on ABC News' "This Week" whether Trump plans to offer Putin, as a concession, the withdrawal of U.S. military personnel from Syria - where Russian and Iranian forces are also deployed, in support of President Bashar al-Assad

"The whole situation in Syria will be a discussion that the two leaders will have, in large part because it's getting more serious," he replied. "But I think the president's made it clear that we are there until the ISIS territorial caliphate is removed, and as long as the Iranian menace continues throughout the Middle East," Bolton added. (Read more)

- Father, bring an end to the crisis in Syria. We pray and intercede over the people of Syria. We pray thy kingdom come thy will be done in this country. Bring peace, in Jesus name.

- Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another,agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
(11 Corinthians 13:11)

Follow, follow, I Would Follow Jesus

"If ye love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15)

Down in the valley with my Savior I would go, Where the flowers are blooming and the sweet waters flow; Everywhere He leads me I would follow, follow on, Walking in His footsteps till the crown be won. Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus! Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on! Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus! Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!
Down in the valley with my Savior I would go, Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waters flow; With His hand to lead me I will never, never fear, Dangers cannot fright me if my Lord is near. 3 Down in the valley, or upon the mountain steep, Close beside my Savior would my heart ever keep; He will lead me safely in the path that He has trod, Up to where they gather in the rest of God.

11-million-ton iceberg threatens to inundate tiny Greenland village
with tsunami

An 11-million ton iceberg, perched off the coast of a tiny Greenland village, is striking fear in the hearts of residents. Residents of Innaarsuit worry that a chunk of it could break off and unleash a tsunami upon the town.

What happens to the gigantic mountain of ice, which a Danish meteorologist said is 650 feet wide-nearly the length of two football fields-and rises almost 300 feet into the air, depends largely on the weather. A strong wind could push the iceberg into the nearby Baffin Bay, averting a crisis.

Alternatively, a large amount of warm precipitation could further destabilize the berg and cause a large piece to break off and create a wave that would inundate the town.

So far, 33 people have been moved to safer places inland, while others have been asked to move their boats away from the iceberg, reports the Washington Post.

"We are very concerned and are afraid," Karl Petersen, chair for the local council in Innaarsuit, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

A Danish Royal Navy ship is standing by, according to the CBC, in case the situation in Innaarsuit sours.

Meanwhile, residents are watching the weather forecast closely.

The Post reports that the area will see relatively sedate winds for the next week; on Sunday, July 22, there is rain forecast to affect the area. (Fox News)
