Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael

- Father, we pray for Your protection over life and property as this storm tracks northeast. Help federal, state and local emergency services coordinate their response.

- Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. (Psalm 57:1)

1. Hurricane Michael Now Accelerating Through Southwestern Georgia; Deadly Storm Surge, Damaging Winds Continue Following Florida Panhandle Landfall - WeatherChannel

Hurricane Michael made landfall as a catastrophic, unprecedented Category 4 hurricane on the Florida Panhandle early Wednesday afternoon. Life-threatening storm surge and 100-plus-mph winds are expected not just near the coast, but also inland, which could leave some areas without power for over a week. Rain from Michael has spread across the Florida Panhandle, eastern Alabama and much of Georgia.

A hurricane warning is posted for the Florida Gulf coast from the Okaloosa/Walton County line to Suwanee River, Florida, including Panama City and Tallahassee. The hurricane warning also extends inland to southwestern Georgia, including Albany. Hurricane warnings are issued 36 hours before the anticipated arrival of tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph), which is when outside preparations become dangerous. A tropical storm warning has been issued from north of Fernandina Beach, Florida, to Duck, North Carolina. This includes Pamlico and Albemarle sounds.

The tropical storm warning also extends inland to portions of southwestern Georgia, including Valdosta. This means tropical-storm-force winds are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours. (Read more)

2. Trump's message to those in path of storm: "God bless you all" - CNN

"I say God bless you all," Trump said. "That's my message because that's what it is. The storm is there. It's sort of too late to do that now from the standpoint of moving."

FEMA Director Block Long amplified Trump's message, saying the "window to evacuate has . . . come to a close."

The President said it was "very sad" that some of the areas in the storm's path are poverty-stricken, adding again that many people are "unable" to evacuate. "More than we would like," Trump said. "You have people that are stuck, they're just stuck there."

The President said the government has been helping some people evacuate, but he said others "don't want to go out. They will be ok," Trump said. "They are strong, smart, wonderful people." (Read more)

3. State of emergency declared in 108 Georgia counties - CNN

A state of emergency has been declared in 108 counties throughout Georgia.

That's up from the 92 counties previously reported, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said during a news conference Wednesday.

Deal warned that Hurricane Michael was a dangerous storm.

4. Waterfront mayor: "We're just hoping for the best"- CNN

The waterfront city of Mexico Beach, Florida, lost power late Wednesday morning, according to Mayor Al Cathey. Sustained winds were reaching 50 mph, with gusts in the 60 mph range. There were heavy rains.

"It certainly is deteriorating rapidly here," he told CNN.

Of the city's 1,200 residents, all but about 280 people have evacuated, Cathey said. "Not everyone left and we're just hoping for the best here."

5. 4 facts that'll put Michael's power into perspective - CNN

a. Hurricane Michael will be the strongest hurricane to strike the Florida Panhandle on record (more than 150 years of record keeping)

b. The forecasted landfall of 150 mph would be the strongest storm to make landfall anywhere in the Continental US since Hurricane Charley in 2004 hit SW Florida (stronger than Katrina, Irma, Harvey, etc)

c. There are more than 30 million people across 6 states under a Hurricane or Tropical Storm Warning/Watch (FL, GA, AL, MS, SC, NC)

d. The tropical-storm-force wind speeds stretch for more than 320 miles, which, for example would stretch from New York City to Pittsburgh.

Focus on Israel

1. Days after Netanyahu vow, Russia rejects Israeli sovereignty over Golan - Jerusalem Post

Two days after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stood on the Golan Heights and declared that it will remain under Israeli sovereignty, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said changing the status of the plateau would be a violation of Security Council resolutions.

"The status of the Golan Heights is determined by the resolutions of the UN Security Council," Lavrov was quoted by Tass as telling reporters on Wednesday. "To change this status bypassing the Security Council, I think, would be a direct violation of these resolutions."

This public disagreement over the future of the Golan Heights comes following a setback in Israel-Russian ties triggered by last month's Syrian downing of a Russian intelligence plane - which Moscow blamed on Israel - and Russia's decision to supply Syria with S-300 advanced anti-aircraft missile batteries that limit the IAF's maneuverability in Syrian skies.

On Monday, Netanyahu - speaking at the dedication of a restored 1,500-year-old synagogue on the Golan Heights - said, "As long as it is dependent on me, the Golan will remain under Israeli sovereignty. Otherwise we will get Iran and Hezbollah on the banks of the Kinneret."

2. Netanyahu reportedly says 'reckless' Erdogan ruining Turkish democracy, economy - Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly told the foreign ministers of Greece and Cyprus last month that he is deeply pessimistic about Turkey's future as a democracy under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and said he believes its economy is destined for further decline.

"Turkey is becoming undemocratic," Netanyahu said, according to a Wednesday Channel 10 report that cited Israeli officials familiar with the September meeting. "Erdogan calls me 'Hitler' every two weeks. It's a systemic problem - I don't see light at the end of the tunnel," he said, also noting his concerns that Turkey may take delivery of the advanced F-35 fighter jets.

3. UNESCO: Cave of the Patriarchs, Rachel's Tomb Part of "Occupied Palestine" - Jewish Press

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Executive Board has adopted resolutions 28 and 29, stating that the Cave of the Patriarchs (Maarat Hamachpela) in Hebron and Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem are both "an integral part of the Occupied Palestinian Territories".

The resolutions, titled "Occupied Palestine," went on to condemn any "Israeli measures aimed at altering the character, status and demographic composition of the Occupied Palestinian territory." The language in the resolutions, sponsored by Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Oman, Qatar, Sudan and Morocco, repeatedly referred to Israel as the "occupier" in Hebron and Bethlehem.

Last December, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed Israel's envoy to UNESCO Carmel Shama Hacohen to officially announce Israel's withdrawal from the organization, two months after US President Donald Trump ordered that the United States withdraw due to an "anti-Israel bias."

4. PA angered over sale of property to Jews -Israel National News

The Palestinian Authority (PA) cabinet, headed by Rami Hamdallah, on Wednesday condemned what it called "the settlers' takeover of a historic property in the area of
​​the Al-Aqsa Mosque under the protection of Israeli military officials."

The announcement refers to the sale of an old home in "Aqaba Darwish" in the Old City of Jerusalem to Jews.

The PA called on international organizations, particularly UNESCO, to intervene to "prevent the occupation from taking over the original Arab cultural heritage in occupied Arab Jerusalem."

In this context, Hamdallah announced the establishment of a commission of inquiry to examine the circumstances surrounding the sale of the house in Jerusalem, question the relevant officials, obtain documents and publish the results of the investigation in order to bring those responsible to justice.

5. Imagining Jerusalem in the next generation - Israel National News

What will Jerusalem look like in 2040? The staff of "Jerusalem 5800" convened the four candidates for mayor of Jerusalem Wednesday around one table to answer this question.

Ze'ev Elkin, Yossi Deitch, Ofer Berkowitz and Moshe Leon were faced with important questions concerning the future of Jerusalem at the Lev Academic Center. The questions were asked by Student Union, Gali Israel and Arutz Sheva.

When asked if they wanted to expand the boundaries of Jerusalem and whether an airport should be established in the capital, the candidates responded in a variety of ways.

Jerusalem Affairs Minister Ze'ev Elkin said that "first and foremost, I unequivocally support expanding the boundaries of Greater Jerusalem, and I think that this is one of the ways to achieve a fundamental solution to promote construction in Jerusalem."

The Daily Brief

1. Donald Trump: Democrats 'Medicare for All' plan will demolish promises to seniors - USA Today

Throughout the year, we have seen Democrats across the country uniting around a new legislative proposal that would end Medicare as we know it and take away benefits that seniors have paid for their entire lives. Dishonestly called "Medicare for All," the Democratic proposal would establish a government-run, single-payer health care system that eliminates all private and employer-based health care plans and would cost an astonishing $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years.

As a candidate, I promised that we would protect coverage for patients with pre-existing conditions and create new health care insurance options that would lower premiums. I have kept that promise, and we are now seeing health insurance premiums coming down. Indeed, the Democrats' commitment to government-run health care is all the more menacing to our seniors and our economy when paired with some Democrats' absolute commitment to end enforcement of our immigration laws by abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement. That means millions more would cross our borders illegally and take advantage of health care paid for by American taxpayers.

Republicans believe that a Medicare program that was created for seniors and paid for by seniors their entire lives should always be protected and preserved. I am committed to resolutely defending Medicare and Social Security from the radical socialist plans of the Democrats. For the sake of our country, our prosperity, our seniors and all Americans - this is a fight we must win. (Read more)

- Father, we pray seniors will see the folly of expanding the Medicare program and vote to keep the plan for eligibile retirees only. We also lift up the fiscal health of our nation. Help us keep our promises to all our retirees.

- Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. (Proverbs 23:22)

2. Trump poised to sign bipartisan water infrastructure bill - The Hill

President Trump is poised to sign a bipartisan water infrastructure bill after it passed the Senate 99-1 this week. America's Water Infrastructure Act, the most comprehensive infrastructure legislation passed this Congress, will authorize over $6 billion in federal spending on ports, harbors and waterways. It will also deauthorize spending on water projects that have been deemed inefficient.

"President Trump called on Congress to take action on the country's water infrastructure and we have done that today," Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said in a statement on Wednesday. The bill authorizes billions of dollars for an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fund that provides money to improve drinking water infrastructure at the state level.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) tweeted on Wednesday that America's Water Infrastructure Act is "a major step toward meeting the challenge of improving our nation's infrastructure. From dams, levees, and flood control to safer drinking water and sewage systems, this legislation meets all sorts of pressing needs," he wrote. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for this bipartisan bill that targets needed funding for improved water infrastructure. May Congress continue to pass more bipartisan legislation for the benefit of our people prior to the end of this legislative session.

- Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)

3. How Bloomberg Embeds Green Warriors in Blue-State Governments - RealClearPolitics

A New York University School of Law program funded by billionaire Michael Bloomberg is placing lawyers in the offices of Democratic state attorneys general and paying them to prosecute energy companies and challenge Trump administration policies on energy and the environment.

Nine states and Washington, D.C., including New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania, are participating in the multimillion-dollar program funded by the media magnate and ex-New York City mayor, who re-registered as a Democrat this week amid expectations of a run for president in 2020.

The 14 current fellows in the program report to the attorneys general, but they are paid by NYU's Bloomberg-funded State Energy & Environmental Impact Center. State AG offices hire these trained lawyers - not students but seasoned professionals with years of experience - as special assistant attorneys general. Under terms of the arrangement, the fellows work solely to advance progressive environmental policy at a time when Democratic state attorneys general have investigated and sued ExxonMobil and other energy companies over alleged damages due to climate change.

Although many government agencies have employees funded by outside sources, critics say using special interest money for targeted government action is inappropriate. Christopher Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, who wrote a report on the NYU center, said the fellowships come with specific strings attached. "[AG] offices must agree to use prosecutors to 'advance progressive clean energy, climate change, and environmental legal positions,'" Horner said. (Read more)

- Father, we pray these attorneys provided by outside interest groups will be deemed illegal and this activity to use the states to promote political agendas will end.

- Do not grant the wicked their desires, Lord; do not let their plans succeed. (Psalm 140:8)

4. Rand Paul on political climate: 'I really worry that someone is going to be killed' - The Hill

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said lawmakers should tamp down their political rhetoric, warning that otherwise it could lead to violence. Paul, during an interview with a Kentucky radio station, said he was concerned that there "is going to be an assassination," after a few tense weeks around the Capitol because of the Supreme Court fight. "I really worry that someone is going to be killed and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation . . . they have to realize that they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence," Paul said.

Paul recounted the June 2017 shooting at a practice session for the congressional baseball game, where a gunman shot five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). The Kentucky Republican also recalled how his neighbor assaulted him late last year. "These are people that are unstable. We don't want to encourage them," he added. "We have to somehow ratchet it down and say we're not encouraging them that violence is ever OK."

Hundreds of protesters flooded the Senate office buildings in opposition to Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination. The heated debate led to Republican senators, and some Democrats, being confronted by activists in hallways around Capitol Hill, at D.C.-area airports and restaurants and in their cars. Several GOP senators were escorted to votes or committee hearings by Capitol Police, and many have said that they or their staffs received threatening or "vulgar" calls or mail during the confirmation process. (Read more)

- Father, we pray protection over Judge Kavanaugh and his family. We pray peace be still to all the violence and protests that are happening.

- Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil, but those who promote peace have joy. (Proverbs 12:20)

5. Teamsters Scold Pa. Members for Voting Trump - FreeBeacon

The Pennsylvania Teamsters scolded its members for helping President Donald Trump capture the White House in 2016 and warned of dire consequences if they break from the union slate in 2018. Union leadership sent out a newsletter to members in September calling on them to stick to the labor organization's preferred slate of candidates in order to avoid doomsday. The legislative action alert led off with a photoshopped mushroom cloud warning of the "Total Annihilation Of Unions."

"Instead of representing the diverse political views of union members, union officials' response is to lecture and bully workers into voting only for the candidates who will expand union boss power," Semmens said. "This attitude is exactly why so many workers view labor officials, especially those in state capitals and in multimillion-dollar headquarter buildings in Washington, D.C., as completely out of touch with the interests of those they claim to represent."

Trump has continued outreach efforts to blue collar and union workers in swing states. President Trump visited the National Electrical Contractors Association convention in Philadelphia on Oct. 2. He touted the newly released United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, his regulatory agenda, tax cuts, and focus on manufacturing to the crowd of union workers who applauded.(Read more)

- Father, we pray that this bullying would stop against those who support President Trump. We pray special protection over Trump supporters. We should be able to support who we choose without fear of violence or intimidation such as the union in the above headline.

- The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1)

6. 'THE GOOD CENSOR': Leaked Google Briefing Admits Abandonment of Free Speech for 'Safety And Civility' - Breitbart

An internal company briefing produced by Google and leaked exclusively to Breitbart News argues that due to a variety of factors, including the election of President Trump, the "American tradition" of free speech on the internet is no longer viable.

Despite leaked video footage showing top executives declaring their intention to ensure that the rise of Trump and the populist movement is just a "blip" in history, Google has repeatedly denied that the political bias of its employees filter into its products.

But the 85-page briefing, titled "The Good Censor," admits that Google and other tech platforms now "control the majority of online conversations" and have undertaken a "shift towards censorship" in response to unwelcome political events around the world.

The briefing associates Google's new role as the guarantor of "civility" with the categories of "editor" and "publisher." The document also bemoans that the internet allows "have a go commenters" (in other words, ordinary people) to compete on a level playing field with "authoritative sources" like the New York Times. Google-owned YouTube now promotes so-called "authoritative sources" in its algorithm. The company did not specifically name which sources it would promote. (Read more)

- Father, we pray protection over our free speech. We pray that those who control the internet to censure and stop free speech would be stopped.

- For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. (Galatians 5:13)

7. Christian TV network enters world of 24-hour news - Yahoo

The Christian Broadcasting Network's news channel will provide a religious perspective that other channels lack, CEO Gordon Robertson told The Associated Press in an interview in advance of the network's formal launch Monday. The CBN News Channel, to air on local television stations in 15 U.S. cities, will produce original programming and commentary.

Robertson, son of evangelist Pat Robertson, said he wants the channel to bring people together. Pat Robertson helped revolutionize religious TV through the Christian Broadcasting Network. He also ran for president in 1988 and worked to galvanize conservative Christians into a political force in the 1990s.

David Brody, CBN's chief political analyst in Washington, also has interviewed the president as well as Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, among others in the White House. Brody recently co-authored the book, "The Faith of Donald J. Trump."

Among the shows included in the news channel's lineup are "Jerusalem Dateline" which will focus on Israel, and "Faith Nation" which is centered on politics. The channel also will provide programming about healthy living and entertainment, Gordon Robertson said. (Read more)

- Father, thank You for this 24-hour news by the Christian TV Network. In a world of constant negative news, it is refreshing to listen to 24 hour Good News!

- But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

8. Dow tumbles more than 800 points as Treasury yields tick higher - FoxBusiness

U.S. stocks plunged Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average recording its largest single-day point drop since February. Big tech stocks helped fuel the selling as investors weigh the threat of rising U.S. treasury yields and global trade spats.

The Dow tumbled 831.83 points, or 3.15 percent, to 25,598.74. The tech-heavy Nasdaq and the Russell 2000, a snapshot of domestic companies, are both on pace for the worst start to a fourth quarter since 2008, same for the S&P 500 and the Dow, as tracked by Dow Jones Market Data.

A combination of threats drove the sell-off. The International Monetary Fund earlier this week cut its outlook for growth in the global economy to 3.7 percent from 3.9 percent, partly because of worsening trade tensions between the U.S. and China. The intensifying clash between Italy's new government and the European Union over the nation's budget threatened to spread to other euro-based economies.

Meanwhile, American interest rates are climbing, something that weighs on corporate earnings and the ability of consumers to spend money. The possibility that the U.S. central bank will accelerate its interest rate hikes weighed on investor sentiment. Traders were closely monitoring Treasury yields, which were hovering around a 7-year high and creeping higher after steadying Tuesday. (Read more)

-Father, we pray prosperity over our economy. May our economy thrive and increase more and more. May our people prosper in all they do.

- And God [is] able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all [things], may abound to every good work: (2 Corinthians 9:8)

9. China is 'broadest, long-term counter-intelligence threat' facing the US, says FBI chief - South China Morning Post

China is waging an unprecedented campaign to influence American public opinion as November congressional elections approach and presents the greatest long-term counter-intelligence threat to the United States, US security officials said on Wednesday. Top of Form

Senators on the Homeland Security Committee questioned Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and FBI Director Christopher Wray about President Donald Trump's assertion that China is interfering in US elections and asked whether Beijing poses a larger threat to the country than Moscow. "China in many ways represents the broadest, most complicated, most long-term counter-intelligence threat we face," Wray said. "Russia is in many ways fighting to stay relevant after the fall of the Soviet Union. They're fighting today's fight. China is fighting tomorrow's fight."

Nielsen told the panel there were two types of threats to American election security from other nations: hacking or disruption of election infrastructure, which includes voter registration lists or voting machines, and influence campaigns. "China absolutely is on an unprecedented - or exerting unprecedented effort to influence American opinion," Nielsen said. "We have not seen to date any Chinese attempts to compromise election infrastructure." (Read more)

- Father, we pray against any interference by China in our election and influencing American opinion.

- Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. (Isaiah 60:18)

"Stand up Stand up for Jesus"


Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high his royal banner,
It must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory
His army shall he lead,
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Stand in his strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armor,

Each piece put on with prayer;
Where duty calls or danger,
Be never wanting there.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, The strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor's song.
To those who vanquish evil
A crown of life shall be;
They with the King of Glory
Shall reign eternally.

"I've been here all my life and I've never seen anything like this." Florida red tide bloom now stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to Fort Lauderdale

It is astonishing, jaw-dropping even, it should be world news or at least national news but the fact is since May this year the entire west coast of Florida, from Navarre Beach in the north all the way down to Collier County in the south has witnessed the death of millions, maybe billions of marine species from birds to fish, manatees, dolphins and turtles due to a red tide algae bloom and it only made local news.

Below is a list of die-offs, (with links attached) along the entire west coast of Florida since May, the list is frightening.

It started off slowly...And then exploded.

Below is not a true figure as many more species will have died out at sea. (Go here)

Baby with Spina Bifida Who Had Surgery before Birth, Now Able to Walk

(Kansas City, MO)-[] Doctors told an expectant mom that her son had spina bifida and might never walk. But thanks to his parents' love and prenatal surgery, adorable toddler Roman Dinkel has become an internet walking sensation.

A video of Roman taking some of his first steps, with the aid of tiny crutches, has gone viral, seen millions of times. Last month the toddler appeared on "Good Morning America" with his mom Whitney, dad Adam, and the family puppy, Maggie. Maggie appears in the eight-second clip, as Roman squeaks, "Look, Maggie! I'm walking!"

Thousands of people have posted messages to the Dinkel family's Facebook page, "Defying Odds: Roman Dinkel's Journey," and YouTube to say how much joy and inspiration Roman has given them.

Roman was diagnosed with spina bifida, a congenital defect of the spine in which the spinal cord is left exposed through a gap in the backbone, when he was 20 weeks in the womb. His father Adam said on "Good Morning America" that the first option doctors give parents of unborn babies diagnosed with spina bifida is "termination." But the Dinkels do not believe in it.
