The President's Press Conference

President Trump on 2018 Election Results

President Trump held a news conference in the White House East Room the day after the 2018 midterm elections. The president said "the Republican Party defied history to expand our Senate majority." He praised House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and vowed to work with the new Democratic House majority in a bipartisan manner. In addition, the president threatened to respond to any House Democratic efforts to investigate the White House. Throughout the press conference, the president got into several heated exchanges with reporters including CNN's Jim Acosta and PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor.

CNN's Jim Acosta has press pass suspended by White House, Sarah Sanders announces

CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta's press pass to access the White House was suspended "until further notice" Wednesday, hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with President Trump.

"I've just been denied entrance to the WH," Acosta tweeted Wednesday night. "Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit."

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Acosta's tweet in a statement, claiming the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his "placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern." She called the behavior "absolutely unacceptable." (Fox News) Read more.

- Father God, we are so blessed to see a President who has no fear in addressing the errors of the Fourth Estate. We thank You for the courage and the tenacity demonstrated by President Trump, and we ask that the members of the White House Press Corps would take note and begin now to display attitudes of civility in the days ahead. In Your Name, amen.

- "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord!" (Psalm 150:6)

Focus on Israel

1. Rail from Israel to Gulf 'makes sense,' Israel's transport minister says in Oman - Times of Israel

MUSCAT, Oman - Transportation Minister Israel Katz, in the Gulf State of Oman on Wednesday, pitched plans to link the Mediterranean to the Gulf via the Jewish state, as the country pushes unprecedented public rapprochement with the Arab region.

"It makes sense and is beyond political and ideological disagreements," said Katz. Israel currently has diplomatic ties with only two Arab states, Egypt and Jordan, but not the Sultanate of Oman.

The "Tracks of Peace" rail link, which Katz said was supported by the administration of US President Donald Trump, was "based on two central ideas - Israel as a land bridge and Jordan as a regional transportation hub."

2. Man killed in car explosion on Coastal Highway - Israel National News

A man around 30-years-old was killed this afternoon after a car explosion in central Israel, near the Hof Hasharon interchange heading north on the Coastal Highway, Route 2.

Two other people in their thirties were moderately and lightly injured, treated by Magen David Adom teams and evacuated to the hospital.

An initial investigation indicates that the explosion occurred while the vehicle was driving. The vehicle then came to a halt after a few dozen meters. Police are investigating whether the incident was a targeted killing of criminal background.

"When we arrived, we saw a 30-year-old man trapped inside the car, unconscious, with severe systemic damage. He had no pulse and was not breathing. We performed medical tests and soon had to determine his death," MDA medic Idan said.

3. Brazil: We won't yield to Arab pressure, embassy will move to Jerusalem - Israel Hayom

The new administration in Brazil has reiterated its position that despite mounting pressure from the Arab world, it will remain true to its word and relocate its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"We're going to move the Brazilian Embassy to Jerusalem," Eduardo Bolsonaro, the son of newly elected President Jair Bolsonaro, wrote on Tuesday to Jane Silva, president of a leading pro-Israel organization in Brazil.

Silva had approached Eduardo Bolsonaro in the wake of reports in the Brazilian press indicating that Egypt had called off the Brazilian foreign minister's upcoming visit to Cairo in protest of the planned embassy transfer.

4. IDF discovers 2 grenades meant for Jewish worshipers at Joseph's Tomb - World Israel News

On Tuesday, Israeli Defense Forces protecting a pilgrimage of 1,000 Jewish worshipers to the Tomb of Joseph discovered two grenades hidden at the site. The hand grenades were of makeshift design and appeared to be manufactured locally, according to reports. In addition, gunfire was directed at an Israel Defense Forces vehicle and Palestinian Arabs threw rocks and Molotov cocktails.

Although the Tomb of Joseph located near the city of Schechem (Nablus) is completely under Arab control as set forth in the Oslo Accords, Jews retain special rights to pray at the tomb.

Violence has broken out in the past during similar visits. In 2017, 1,000 pilgrims visiting the tomb on the second night of Hanukkah were also met with Palestinian riots.

5. Jerusalem Parents Scrambling To Get Their Kids Vaccinated - Jerusalem Post

The uptick in reported cases of the measles in Israel, particularly in Jerusalem, has brought parents to clinics and doctors' offices to vaccinate their children.

On Tuesday, the Health Ministry said the total number of measles cases in the country has reached 1,401, most of which are in Jerusalem with 838 residents infected - and the vast majority of those cases are in ultra-orthodox families.

After an emergency meeting on Monday, the ministry instituted new "intensive" measures to cap the growing number of cases by extending the hours at family health (tipat halav) clinics until 8:00 p.m. for vaccinations; recruiting more nurses and medical staff to administer vaccinations; dispatching mobile vaccination units to specific neighborhoods where parents typically do not vaccinate their children; and denying access to schools and certain areas in hospitals to individuals who have not been vaccinated.

The Daily Brief

1. 'God Plays a Very Big Role in My Life': Trump Takes Soft Tone as Angry Media Blasts Him After Election - CBN News

President Trump faced a very antagonistic media on the day after the midterm elections, offering a soft tone about his desire to work across the aisle with Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in the House. He said he understands that Pelosi loves the country and he hopes compromise can be possible. The president began the wide-ranging press conference with a focus on the election results, but it soon devolved into brazen and shocking media attacks that appeared designed to frustrate and enrage the president.

CNN's Jim Acosta stood defiantly on the front row, badgering the president over and over about the caravan and the Russia election, refusing to release the microphone, standing right in front of the president in a shocking confrontation. The president told him his time was done, telling him to sit down and to stop being a "rude, terrible person." Eventually Trump had to walk away from the microphone because Acosta wouldn't stop creating a spectacle.

One of the few productive and peaceful moments of the event came when a Jewish reporter asked the president about God's place in his administration. "God plays a very big role in my life," Trump said. He pointed out that God's place is apparent in the lives of many members of his administration, including the vice president. (Read more)

- Father, give President Trump and his administration wisdom about when and how to engage the media.

- Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies- make your way straight before me.
(Psalm 5:8)

2. Jeff Sessions resigns as attorney general - Washington Examiner

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, submitted his resignation in a letter to White House chief of staff John Kelly on Wednesday afternoon. Sessions' resignation letter was delivered by hand to the White House after it was requested by President Trump earlier Wednesday. Trump tweeted out the announcement soon after it was made. Trump thanked Sessions for his work and said Sessions' chief of staff [Matthew G. Whitaker] would be acting attorney general.

It was widely expected that Sessions would leave his position after the 2018 midterm elections, regardless of whether they favored Republicans or Democrats. Since taking over the Justice Department, Sessions has been instrumental in carrying out many of the promises Trump made on the campaign trail, including on immigration and border security, violent crime, and religious liberty. The acting attorney general must be someone who is at the same clearance level as the attorney general. That person would then assume control of Mueller's investigation. However, Sessions replacement cannot be Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein is currently acting attorney general as it pertains to Mueller's investigation and thus cannot serve in both capacities. Should Rosenstein become acting attorney general, Solicitor General Noel Francisco would take over Mueller's investigation. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for the good work Jeff Sessions has done to restore law and order to our nation, especially his pursuit and apprehension of sex traffickers. We pray for Your blessing upon him and his family.

- Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. (Romans 13:7)

3. Top Dems demand Whitaker recusal, sound alarm after Sessions' resignation: 'This is a break-the-glass moment' - Fox News

Top Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the ranking members on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, sounded the alarm after Attorney General Jeff Sessions' abrupt resignation on Wednesday, and demanded that Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker recuse himself from overseeing the inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. "This is a break-the-glass moment," Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said in a statement. In his new capacity, Whitaker is the head official at the Justice Department, and at least for now, oversees the Mueller probe and the agency's other federal investigations, including the New York prosecutors' look into the finances of Trump and his former aides. The DOJ is an Executive Branch department staffed by both career officials, who are shielded from arbitrary termination, and political appointees like Sessions and Whitaker who serve at the president's pleasure.

"It is a true honor that the President has confidence in my ability to lead the Department of Justice as Acting Attorney General," Whitaker said in a statement Wednesday evening. "I am committed to leading a fair Department with the highest ethical standards that upholds the rule of law, and seeks justice for all Americans. I will work with our colleagues in Federal, State, local, and tribal leadership, including our partners in law enforcement and our U.S. Attorneys, to ensure the safety of all Americans and the security of the nation." (Read more)

- Father, we pray for a merciful end to the Mueller investigation, for the benefit of our nation and President Trump's ability to govern.

- She continued doing this for many days. But Paul was greatly annoyed, and turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And it came out at that very moment. (Acts 16:18)

4. Trump: Dems must choose between bipartisanship and investigations - Washington Times

President Trump warned Democrats Wednesday that they can either have bipartisan cooperation on trade, infrastructure and health care, or they can pursue investigations into him - but they can't do both. Mr. Trump also said he'll still push for more funding for his border wall, setting up an early clash with Democrats who after this week's voting will control the House when the new Congress convenes. He said a government shutdown is still "possible."

The president did, though, say Democrats will squander the chance for cooperation if they attempt to pry loose his tax returns or fire off a flurry of subpoenas on other areas. "If that happens then we're going to do the same thing and government comes to a halt," the president said at a press conference. He also warned Democrats they would come out on the wrong side of that tit-for-tat, saying he knew how to investigate "better than them." He said he figures the gridlock that snared Congress for the past two years might actually lessen, saying Democrats now will be responsible for coming up with bills they'll have to try to get agreement on. "We have a lot of things in common on infrastructure, we want to do something on health care, they want to do something on health care," he said. "We will get the Democrats and we will get the Republicans, or some of the Republicans." (Read more)

- Father, we pray both sides will choose well and grant our nation a season of peace.

- He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his peace. (Proverbs 11:12)

5. Incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson Embraces Florida's Automatic Senate Recount - Breitbart

Incumbent Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) released a statement Wednesday embracing a state-wide recount in a race he is currently losing by nearly 35,000 votes with 100 percent of precincts reporting. "We are proceeding to a recount," Nelson said in an early morning statement.

"Unofficial results show U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson narrowly trailing GOP candidate Rick Scott by a little more than just 34,500 votes," the campaign statement read. "That's less than one-half percentage point difference, state law requires a recount when candidates are within one-half point."

Unless there has been a massive tabulating error somewhere, the chances of Nelson overcoming a 34,7000 lead are almost non-existent. Without an error, recounts of this kind, especially machine recounts, tend to declare the same winner even when the margins are much, much smaller. A Nelson loss would be another net pick up for the Republican Senate, who already appear to have netted three additional Senate seats. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for the correct tabulation of ballots. Keep those who would cause trouble from meddling with the outcome.

- It's better to grab a mad dog by its ears than to meddle and interfere in a quarrel that's none of your business. (Proverbs 26:17)

6. Big Labor Still All-In for Dems - Free Beacon

The mass defection of union members to the Trump campaign over the objections of labor leaders does not appear to have shifted campaign behavior in the midterms. Local, state, and national labor groups continue to pour money into the coffers of Democratic candidates. The Center for Responsive Politics found that 84 percent of the $133 million unions have spent in the 2018 cycle went to benefit Democrats.

The partisan split is down slightly from 2016 when unions gave 88 percent of their $213 million in campaign spending to boost Hillary Clinton and her allies, even as individual members cast decisive votes for Trump in labor strongholds such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio. "The same far-left union executives are doubling down on backing the same far-left political candidates, often using member dues to make political contributions," Nelsen said. "It's pretty much business as usual."

"You see the same song and dance every few years when union members look up and realize the union officials that claim to represent them are spending their money in opposition to the candidates and causes favored by many workers," Semmens said. "They may occasionally pay lip service to being more representative of the diverse political views of rank-and-file workers, but when push comes to shove union bosses will always back the candidate who is most devoted to protecting and expanding Big Labor's coercive powers." (Read more)

- Father, we pray the corrupt bonds between organized labor and the Democrat party would be severed, once and for all. We pray unions will be responsive to their members and independent of political parties.

Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with those who are bloodthirsty, in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. (Psalm 26:9-10)

7. Mike Pompeo's meeting with North Korean official postponed - UPI

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's meeting with his North Korean counterpart, scheduled for Thursday in New York, has been postponed, the State Department said Wednesday. "We will reconvene when our respective schedules permit. Ongoing conversations continue to take place," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.

They were expected to discuss "making progress on all four pillars of the Singapore Summit joint statement, including achieving the final, fully verified denuclearization of the DPRK," according to the statement. The United States notified the South Korean government of the postponement before the announcement, Yoon Young-chan, senior secretary to the president for public communication, told reporters Wednesday.

Kim raised hope for a meeting between Pompeo and Kim in a press briefing on Tuesday. He said the United States and North Korea could discuss "setting a new U.S.-North Korea relation and ways for permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula," as agreed by their leaders at the Singapore Summit in June. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for continued progress with North Korea. Help us be successful as we promote peace and freedom for the North Korean people.

- In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. (Psalm 18:6)

8. Opioid Trafficking Is Domestic Terrorism - Real Clear Investigations

America is facing a drug crisis unlike anything it has ever seen before. On average from 1999 to 2016, 115 people died every day from opioid overdoses across the nation - with the total annual figure peaking at more than 49,000 in 2017. If this were a disease or a plague, America would be in a panic, schools would close, and those affected would be in quarantine.

A new synthetic opiate called fentanyl is responsible for much of this carnage. One of the deadliest drugs to ever plague our streets, just 2 milligrams of fentanyl can kill a grown man - making it more dangerous than anthrax. Many times, users have no idea that these synthetic opioids are being laced into marijuana, heroin, and pills that appear to be legitimate prescription medications. In Ohio, roughly 50 percent of the pills being sold on the streets are fakes with a fentanyl and heroin mix. Even though the pills look legitimate, a single one can be lethal. There are no second chances.

Along with my colleagues, I produced the documentary "Not in Vein" to make clear to Americans and the entire world the problems we face in this battle. Over the past two years, I interviewed federal agents, undercover vice cops, grieving parents, and expert activists to determine the severity and cause of the opioid crisis. They've shown me that the drugs hurt entire communities by creating a lethal culture, endangering individuals, destroying families, and filling cities with gangs that target vulnerable teenagers. (Read more)

- Father, give our leaders wisdom in how to remove these drugs and the people who supply them from our streets. We pray for the salvation of drug dealer and drug user alike - may they both turn to You and be set free.

- They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits' end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. (Psalm 107:27-28)

9. Weed Wins, but Greens Lose - Free Beacon

At the polls Tuesday night, Americans in 37 states voted up and down on 155 ballot initiatives, with big wins for legal marijuana but losses for environmentalist proposals. Nearly 60 percent of Michiganders voted to legalize marijuana statewide, becoming the 10th to do so. Utah and Missouri voters also backed marijuana initiatives, becoming the 32nd and 33rd states in the union to establish medical marijuana regimes. Two criminal justice-related initiatives passed, however: Florida voted to reenfranchise former felons and Louisiana ended its practice of not requiring a unanimous jury for felony convictions.

In what may signal a blow to Republican hopes to repeal Obamacare, three right-leaning states voted to accept Medicaid expansion. Voters in Utah, Idaho, and Nebraska all accepted expanded federal funding. Thirty-six states have now expanded, making its position as a provision of the Affordable Care Act even harder for congressional Republicans to assail.

Eco-warriors saw an even bigger defeat in Colorado where, even as Democrats cruised to victory in Congress and the governor's mansion, voters resoundingly shot down proposition 112, which would have banned oil drilling in most of the state. And in solidly blue Washington State, voters still saw fit to reject Initiative 1631, which would have imposed a fee on CO2 emissions in the state.

Lastly, the pro-life movement scored major victories Tuesday night in Alabama and West Virginia, where voters backed state constitutional amendments establishing an explicit right to life for the unborn and found that there was no state constitutional right to abortion, respectively. In the event that a conservative Supreme Court majority sees fit to overturn Roe v. Wade, these laws will make it easier for both states to ban abortion in the future. Voters in Oregon dissented, however, with two thirds opposing a ballot measure to prohibit the state from funding abortions. (Read more)

- Father, forgive us for giving in to recreational drug use. Help us to remember Your Word calls us to remain sober, so that we can be aware of the enemy's schemes.

- Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

10. Bolton Declares: "Iran Will Never Get Nukes" at Star Studded ZOA Gala Dinner in NYC - The Jewish Voice

Ingeborg Rennert, presented the Sheldon and Miriam Adelson award to National Security Advisor, John Bolton, who received a standing ovation from the ebullient crowd. Bolton is a frequent attendee of this dinner and tonight he delivered a rousing speech saying he was representing a president who no longer apologized for defending our sovereignty and "who was calling out our enemies and standing by our friends". He said that the days of selling out allies or tiptoeing in the name of political correctness were over and America was finally being respected again.

The historic embassy move to Jerusalem was a move that was long overdue, said Bolton, as the US stands for what is "right and just." Withdrawing from the anti-Israel U.N. Human Rights Council, which devoted most of its time to criticizing Israel, was a necessary move because Bolton said, they were unworthy of American membership in 2006 and haven't gotten any better with age. He went on to enumerate some of the president's historic moves such as cutting funding and closing the Washington office of the PLO until they stop paying people who kill Jews, and withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal declaring, "on our watch they will never get nuclear weapons."

He said the current sanctions that would go into effect at midnight were designed to put maximum pressure on Iran whose currency had already lost 70 percent of its value and whose economy was sliding into recession. Moreover, Bolton stated their oil exports had fallen by over one million barrels a day and unless Iran changed their behavior they would face economic disaster. (Read more)

- Father, we pray the people of Iran will be delivered from their wicked leaders and experience refuge in You.

- The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him. (Psalm 37:40)

Classic Hymns


"Pray continually." (1 Thessalonians 5:17)


Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father's throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter's snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgah's lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight:
This robe of flesh I'll drop and rise
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
"Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!"

Signs and Wonders

Vibrant Orange Airglow Envelops Earth and an Astronaut Snaps a Photo

While speeding more than 250 miles above Australia, an astronaut aboard the International Space Station snapped a photo of a vibrant phenomenon that helps scientists learn about the connections between space weather and Earth's weather.

The phenomenon is known as airglow, which is made up of scattered bands of light that can stretch anywhere from 50 miles to 400 miles into Earth's atmosphere, according to NASA.

The colorful scene from orbit occurs when molecules, generally that of nitrogen and oxygen, are energized by ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. Atoms in the lower atmosphere then bump into each other to in order to shed excess energy absorbed by the sunlight.

Unlike auroras, airglow is visible all over the globe, brightest about 10-15 degrees above the horizon, according to Atmospheric Optics. While airglow contains strong coloring, its invisible to the naked eye because its light is below the threshold of color perception.

Airglow allows a look into the workings of the highest layers of our atmosphere, helping scientists learn about the movement of particles near the boundary between Earth and space, including how space weather and weather in our atmosphere interact with one another.

Typically, airglow can be seen in deep red, green - which can be seen at the very highest level of the airglow shown above - or orange hues, though a faint blue shade has been seen before.
