Netanyahu WON!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Lauds 'Incredible Victory' As Exit Polls,

Tally Shows Clear Likud Win Over Gantz's Blue And White Party

Likud projected to win 35 seats to Blue and White's 34, have path to building coalition of at least 63 seats; Netanyahu vows to form right-wing government, 'be PM of all of Israel'

It's official, Benjamin Netanyahu is officially the longest-serving leader in the 70-plus year history of regathered Israel. Though the election got off to one of the rockiest starts Netanyahu has ever experienced, in the end the God of Abraham granted him yet another term as earthly leader of the nation of Israel.

"For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good."(Psalm 122: 5-9)

I guess God has more for the prime minister to yet accomplish, and the mind reels at what might come next. Already we have seen the US Embassy moved to Jerusalem, then we saw Jerusalem declared as the capital of Israel, incredibly we watched as President Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and crazy as it seems, we watched Secretary of State Pompeo hint that the United States might support the building of a third Jewish Temple.

What could possibly top all of that? Something tells that even bigger things are loading in the prophetical pipeline, and just waiting for the word of the Lord to bring them to pass. I am beyond thrilled that Benjamin Netanyahu has been given another term, and what amazing things lay just around the corner. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines . . . now boarding!

Netanyahu lauds 'incredible victory' as exit polls, early tally show clear win

FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared himself victorious in the 2019 general election Monday night, as updated exit polls and early results showed him with a clear path to forming a new government.
"I am very moved on this night," he told exuberant supporters. "This is a night of an incredible, incredible victory." 

Though initial exit polls at 10 p.m. had showed Likud and Blue and White either even at 36 seats (Channel 13 and Kan) or with an advantage for Blue and White (37 to 33 on Channel 12), updated results accounting for the final hours of voting on both Channel 12 and 13 showed Likud leading 35 to 34.

And regardless of the horse race between the two major parties, the right-wing bloc was projected to win a majority in the 120-seat Knesset. The results mean Netanyahu will likely sweep back into power for an unprecedented fifth term, despite pending bribery and fraud indictments hanging over him.
He had help. President Donald Trump gifted him the sensationally timed US recognition of Israeli sovereignty on the Golan late last month, and the branding of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Force as a terror group this week. President Vladimir Putin pitched in with Russia's return of the remains of Zachary Baumel, 37 years after the Brooklyn-born IDF tank commander's death in the Lebanon War.
As of 3:12 a.m. Wednesday, with over 2.7 million votes counted, Likud was leading Blue and White 27.5 percent (roughly 33 seats) to 26% (31 seats). Shas was running a distant third with 6% (7 seats), followed by UTJ with 5.2% (6 seats) and Yisrael Beytenu with 4.6% (6 seats). The actual amount of seats will likely go up once all votes are tallied and votes of parties that did not cross the threshold are redistributed.
Final turnout in the vote was 67.9%, down from 2015's final turnout of 71.8%. Depending on the final tally and coalition negotiations, Netanyahu appeared slated to be able to form a coalition with some 63 to 65 seats, while the Blue and White led opposition would have 55 to 57 seats.
Netanyahu said the numbers indicated a "fantastic achievement, an enormous achievement, which is almost unfathomable."
He applauded his supporters for securing his win in the face of a "biased media." He called the Likud outcome "almost unprecedented," saying, "When did we receive so many seats? I don't even remember." If Likud ends up with 33 seats or above, it would be the party's best showing since 2003, when the party won 38 seats under the leadership of Ariel Sharon.

- Father God, dear Abba, tonight we rejoice with the people of Israel who have voted to keep Prime Minister Netanyahu in office. We thank you, dear Lord, for this miracle. In Your Name, amen.

"Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." (Psalm 126:2)

Focus on Israel

1. Netanyahu, the divisive force of nature who refused to be beaten - Times of Israel

In the end, the combined might of three former Israeli army chiefs proved no match for the political will of Benjamin Netanyahu.

A divisive force of nature who commandeered the airwaves, took over the vegetable markets, monopolized social media and even called potential voters out of the sea at Netanya beach on election day, Netanyahu simply refused to be beaten.

He had help. President Donald Trump gifted him the sensationally timed US recognition of Israeli sovereignty on the Golan Heights late last month, and the branding of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Force as a terror group this week. President Vladimir Putin pitched in with Russia's return of the remains of Zachary Baumel, 37 years after the Brooklyn-born IDF tank commander's death in the Lebanon War.

2. Bennett, Shaked Appear To Be Out Of Knesset As URP Surges - Jerusalem Post

In a surprising twist, two of the more popular and outspoken right-wing politicians, Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, appear to have lost their bid to be in the 21st Knesset.

During the course of the election, it had seemed that political newcomer Rabbi Rafi Peretz, who headed the Union of Right-Wing Parties, was more likely to lose.

But when initial exit polls were released, it was the URP which appears poised to enter the Knesset with five mandates and Bennett and Shaked's New Right Party had not received enough votes to do so. "We expect the prime minister to unequivocally announce his intention to form a right-wing government in which we see ourselves as senior partners," the URP said.

3. Jewish, Zionist Students Speak Out Over Divisive 'Apartheid Week' Campaign Targeting Israel - Algemeiner

Jewish and Zionist students who recently faced heightened levels of anti-Zionist campus activism during the provocatively-named "Israeli Apartheid Week" have spoken out against its divisive nature, and in many cases confronted it with their own programming. First launched by the Arab Students' Collective at the University of Toronto in 2005, IAW has since expanded to dozens of campuses internationally with the aim of promoting the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign, which rejects the existence of a Jewish nation-state in the Levant. Jewish student groups have frequently accused BDS advocates and IAW specifically of engendering a hostile atmosphere on their campuses, including by presenting a hard-line and one-sided narrative of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict that rejects Zionist perspectives, and sometimes resorts to using antisemitic tropes.

With the help of the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), whose membership reportedly includes five different US designated terrorist organizations, IAW officially launched in North America and Europe on March 18, though some anti-Zionist groups launched their programming weeks earlier or later. Various university campuses hosted lectures, panels, and film screenings under the week's umbrella, as well as large "apartheid wall" displays that mimic the West Bank security barrier the Israeli government constructed in response to suicide bombings and other Palestinian terrorist attacks during the Second Intifada.

As in past years, many of these displays featured maps that depict the entirety of Israel as Palestinian territory, often alongside other controversial content- including, for instance, an image of a Palestinian woman carrying a rifle and wearing a belt of bullets across her chest, as seen on a mock wall erected this month by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Florida State University.

4. 'No fishing' sign submerged in Kinneret rising waters - Israel National News 

A no-fishing sign accustomed to a low Kinneret was photographed completely submerged, as the blessed rains this year continue to fill Israel's freshwater lake. 

Each additional centimeter in the Sea of Galilee is 1.7 million cubic meters, equivalent to one billion, seven hundred million liters, or 374 million gallons of water. 

t comes out that for every centimeter the Kinneret rises, an individual could take a continuous shower for 2,776 years. 

Since the beginning of the rainy season, the lake has risen by about three meters. The Kinneret has to rise another three meters to be full.

5. IDF arrests 2 wanted terror suspects - Israel National News 

Overnight Tuesday, IDF soldiers operating in Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria detained two wanted persons suspected of involvement in terrorist activities, popular terror and violent disturbances against civilians and security forces.

The suspects were taken for questioning.

The Daily Brief

1. Barr 'reviewing the conduct' of FBI's 2016 probe of Trump team Russia contacts - NBC News

Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday that he is "reviewing the conduct" of the FBI's Russia probe during the summer of 2016, and that the Department of Justice inspector general will release a report on the FBI's use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process and other matters in the Russia case in May or June.

Barr made the comment during an exchange with Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., ranking member on the panel, who noted that Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had referred eight people to the FBI for investigation regarding "alleged misconduct during the Russia investigation including the leak of classified material and alleged conspiracies to lie to Congress and the FISA court in order to spy on then-candidate Trump and other persons."

The remarks came as the attorney general faced a barrage of tough questions from the Democratic-controlled House panel Tuesday morning regarding Mueller's report, telling lawmakers he would release a redacted version of the original document "within a week." (Read more)

- Father, we pray Attorney General Barr will use the full authority of his office to bring correction to all persons involved in maligning President Trump's campaign, transition and administration.

But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality. (Colossians 3:25)

2. Ukrainian to US prosecutors: Why don't you want our evidence on Democrats? - The Hill

Ukrainian law enforcement officials believe they have evidence of wrongdoing by American Democrats and their allies in Kiev, ranging from 2016 election interference to obstructing criminal probes. Kostiantyn Kulyk, deputy head of the Prosecutor General's International Legal Cooperation Department, told me he and other senior law enforcement officials tried unsuccessfully since last year to get visas from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev to deliver their evidence to Washington.

Many of the allegations shared with me by more than a half-dozen senior Ukrainian officials are supported by evidence that emerged in recent U.S. court filings and intelligence reports. Ukraine's evidence, if true, would mark the first documented allegation of Democrats receiving assistance from a foreign power in their efforts to help Clinton win the 2016 election.

The Ukrainians told me their evidence includes sworn statements from two Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton and financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of then-Vice President Joe Biden. (Read more)

- Father, we pray our Justice Department will receive and consider this evidence of wrongdoing provided by the Ukrainian government.

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. (Luke 8:17)

3. Nunes files $150M lawsuit against McClatchy, alleging conspiracy to derail Clinton, Russia probes - Fox News

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes filed a $150 million lawsuit in Virginia state court against The McClatchy Company and others on Monday, alleging that one of the news agency's reporters conspired with a political operative to derail Nunes' oversight work into the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russian election interference.

In March, Nunes filed a similar $250 million lawsuit alleging defamation against Twitter and one of its users, Republican consultant Liz Mair. In Monday's complaint, Nunes again named Mair as a co-defendant, charging this time that she conspired with McClatchy reporter MacKenzie Mays to spread a variety of untruthful and misleading smears -- including that Nunes "was involved with cocaine and underage prostitutes" -- online and in print.

Nunes' new complaint acknowledged the sensitivity of filing a defamation and conspiracy lawsuit against journalists but went on to allege that the defendants had "abandoned the role of journalist, and chose to leverage their considerable power to spread falsehoods and to defame" Nunes for "political and financial gain." (Read more)

- Father, many of our media companies continue to use their platforms to misinform the people and refuse to apologize for or correct their mistakes. We pray lawsuits, such as this one, will be successful in compelling accountability throughout the media.

Have I not written thirty sayings for you, sayings of counsel and knowledge, teaching you to be honest and to speak the truth, so that you bring back truthful reports to those you serve? (Proverbs 22:20-21)

4. California judge blocks Trump's policy forcing asylum-seekers to stay in Mexico - Fox News

A federal district court judge in the 9th Circuit on Monday issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Trump administration's new policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the order won't immediately go into effect.

Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request by civil liberties groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward. He put the decision on hold until Friday to give U.S. officials the chance to appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals -- which, thanks to Trump's aggressive judicial appointments, is now more friendly to conservatives than it has been in more than three decades.

The launch of the policy in January in San Diego at the nation's busiest border crossing marked an unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system, government officials and asylum experts said. Families seeking asylum typically had been released in the U.S. with notices to appear in court -- and, conservatives have charged, they often can't be relied upon to show up. (Read more)

- Father, we pray President Trump and acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan will have Your wisdom to solve this immigration crisis on our southern border.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)

5. Trump admin to release ObamaCare replacement plan 'fairly shortly' - The Hill

The Trump administration will release a health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act "fairly shortly," acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday. "Republicans have better ideas than Democrats. We should not be afraid to talk about that," Mulvaney said. "We want to run on this."

Administration officials and White House aides, including Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar, met for a Saturday summit at Camp David to discuss possible proposals, according to CNN.

President Trump recently announced he will revisit health care after the 2020 election, insisting the issue is a winning one for Republicans. "You got to confront it. We'll be the party of health care. Republicans should not run away from health care," he said last week. "If we stay away from that subject, we're going to lose. We can't stay away. It's too important." (Read more)
- Father, we pray this healthcare proposal will truly solve the healthcare needs of our people and be well received by the voters.

After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church. (Ephesians 5:29)

6. Putin Presents Ambitious Arctic Expansion Program - NewsMax

Speaking at the Arctic forum in St. Petersburg attended by leaders of Finland, Denmark, Iceland and Norway, Putin said that Russia plans to dramatically increase cargo shipments across the Arctic sea route. 

The Russian leader said that Russia plans to expand the ports on both sides of the Arctic shipping route - Murmansk on the Kola Peninsula and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the Kamchatka Peninsula - and invited foreign companies to invest in the reconstruction project. Other ports and infrastructure facilities along the route will also be upgraded and expanded, he said. 

Russia, the U.S., Canada, Denmark and Norway have all been trying to assert jurisdiction over parts of the Arctic as shrinking polar ice creates new opportunities for resource exploration and new shipping lanes. The Russian military has revamped and modernized a string of Soviet-era military bases across the polar region, looking to protect its hold on the region, which is believed to hold up to one-quarter of the Earth's undiscovered oil and gas. (Read more)
- Father, You are the ruler of the seas and everything in them. We pray Russia will work cooperatively with the U.S., Canada, Denmark, and Norway as they expand their cargo fleet and extract natural resources.

Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4)

7. Orban: EU Elections 'Will Decide Multicultural Or Christian Future For Europe' - Neon Nettle

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has noted the explosive clash between pro-borders and pro-sovereignty insurgents as he prepares his party for the coming EU Parliament elections. Orban, who is a fierce critic of open borders and globalism said that the coming elections would determine which way Europe heads in terms of its culture. 

The Hungarian leader also said that the elections in May, which the UK may also have to take part in despite democratically voting for Brexit, will be a fork in the road where "Europe will choose its future." "Will Europe remain European or will we give way to the masses coming from other cultures?" he questioned. "[W]e will decide whether we protect our Christian European culture or give way to multiculturalism."

"Hungarians, who have been protecting Europe for a thousand years, want the EU, but we are fed up with the way things are going in Brussels," he said. "What outrages our opponents the most is the fact that in our Constitution we have written that Hungary has Christian roots; that here there is no place for multiculturalism; that a child has the right to a mother and a father; and that our nation has the right to defend its borders - which are also the borders of the European Union," Orbán said. (Read more)
- Father, we lift up these elections in Europe and pray Europeans will reject continued mass migration and choose to preserve their cultures.

Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, for they will turn your children away from following me to serve other gods. (Deuteronomy 7:3-4a)

8. Vladimir Putin Calls For Defending Internet Free Speech - Summit News

In stark contrast to attempts in numerous western countries to stifle free speech online, Russian President Vladimir Putin defended Internet freedom during a conference earlier today. Putin told the Russian Internet Governance Forum, "I am confident that we should continue to follow the principle of the freedom of the Internet, creating conditions for a wide exchange of information and the implementation of business initiatives and startups." 

The Russian leader said that it was important to balance free speech online with concerns about tackling cyber-crime and illegal content. Putin's position is at odds with many western leaders, who have elevated concerns about "fake news" and people's feelings being hurt over free speech.

In addition to the widespread banning and deplatforming of numerous dissident speakers over the course of the last year, Internet regulation by the state is also intensifying in the west. (Read more)
- Father, we pray You will protect our right to communicate our thoughts and ideas without restriction or fear of retaliation.

Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom.(James 2:12)

9. Senior Obama Cyber Official Lobbying for China - FreeBeacon

China's government-linked telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies has hired a senior Obama administration cyber security official as a lobbyist, according to a congressional filing. Samir Jain, former senior director for cybersecurity policy at the White House National Security Council, notified Congress March 27 that he is registering as a lobbyist for the Shenzhen-based Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Jain is now with the lobbying firm Jones Day.

According to his online biography for Jones Day, Jain worked at the White House from 2016 to 2017 and before that was an associate deputy attorney general from 2014 to 2015, where he worked on national security and computer fraud issues.

While at the Justice Department, Jain also took part in international negotiations "such as China's agreement not to engage in cyber-enabled intellectual property theft for commercial gain," his bio states. That agreement between President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping in September 2015 has been violated by continued Chinese efforts to steal American technology and other intellectual property through cyber espionage. (Read more)
- Father, we pray for an end to China's infiltration into our government and China's influence over our policy-makers.

By justice a king gives a country stability, but those who are greedy for bribes tear it down. (Proverbs 29:4)

10. Taiwan's President at Free Speech Event: 'China Wants to Use Our Democracy Against Us' - Breitbart

Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen warned an audience at a speech commemorating the nation's Freedom of Expression Day on Sunday that China is actively attempting to "use our democracy against us" through misinformation campaigns designed to curb the nation's sovereignty.

Tsai's remarks were part of an address specifically honoring Deng Nan-jung, a Taiwanese free speech activist and journalist. Tsai also vowed to fight to keep the Communist Party of China from undermining freedom in Taiwan.

Tsai insisted that "freedom of speech is being eroded" through "fake news" in the country propagated by "outside" groups. This month, Taiwan's Deputy Minister of Mainland Affairs Chiu Chui-Cheng announced that Tapei is seeking to block several Chinese media platforms, including the giant streaming services Baidu and Tencent, to prevent Communist Party propaganda adversely affecting the democratic climate in Taiwan. (Read more)

- Father, we commend the courage of Taiwan's President and her desire to keep her nation free. Help her effectively combat the misinformation campaigns directed at her and her nation.

For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisperer, contention quiets down. (Proverbs 26:20)

Stuck between a wall and hard heads

What is a leader supposed to do when detractors happen to be more interested in destroying you personally than doing what they were hired to do? Such is the case with the President. There is story after story about how the loyal "resistance," the coup-makers, are wanting Donald Trump's income tax returns and to continue a needless investigation into a phantom collusion scandal costing taxpayers millions. Meanwhile, the invasion of the United States at its southern border with Mexico continues because the coup-makers refuse to work with the President on securing America's borders. This is insurrection and seditious because it is putting all Americans at risk from crime, disease and more.

Neo-communist New York state legislators are slated to introduce a bill allowing the New York Department of Taxation and Finance to release any state tax return requested by leaders of the US House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, and the Joint House-Senate Committee on Taxation. The New York Times reports that the bill's sponsor, State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), says it is "a safety valve for any attempt by the White House to block the Congress from doing this at the federal level." These people are more interested in obstructing government and personal vendettas than they are in doing what is best for the nation.
Meanwhile, the President is cleaning house in the Department of Homeland Security and Citizen and Immigration Services in an attempt to get stricter administrative control over border security. Yet, everything he does is frustrated by Democratic Party coup-makers in the courts and Congress. Trump has diminishing options to deal with the border crisis because of government insiders, court challenges, immigration laws, and Congressional democrats. For example, AP reports Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said, "The purge of senior leadership at the Department of Homeland Security is unprecedented and a threat to our national security." Feinstein is doing what most of the coup-makers do all the time: point out the obvious without admitting any responsibility for causing the problem.
The "resistance" blames Trump for a lack of leadership in enforcing border security, yet they use their positions to block building a wall and every other possible solution to the problem. Meantime, they focus their attention on Trump's personal taxes, promoting legislation that nationalizes elections, weakens voter identification laws, requires mandatory automatic voter registration, same-day voter registration, no-fault absentee balloting and early voting, as well as forcing taxpayer subsidization of political campaigns, and regulating political speech-all designed to foment a socialist takeover of America. So the President is stuck between a wall and hard heads. Let us be mindful of Romans 12:21, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Either we engage or be overcome. Even though there is no wall, our backs are against it.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

Classic Hymns


"As thy days, so shall thy strength be." (Deuteronomy 33:25)


Day by day, and with each passing moment, Strength I find, to meet my trials here; Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment, I've no cause for worry or for fear.

He whose heart is kind beyond all measure Gives unto each day what He deems best- Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure, Mingling toil with peace and rest.

Every day, the Lord Himself is near me With a special mercy for each hour; All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me, He whose name is Counselor and Power; 

The protection of His child and treasure Is a charge that on Himself He laid; "As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure," This the pledge to me He made.
Help me then, in every tribulation So to trust Thy promises, O Lord, That I lose not faith's sweet consolation Offered me within Thy holy Word.

Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting, E'er to take, as from a father's hand, One by one, the days, the moments fleeting, Till I reach the promised land.

Signs and Wonders

'Bomb Cyclone' To Surge from Pacific Ocean, Wreak Havoc on Heartland U.S.

Flood, snow, avalanche and fire alerts popped up Monday from Idaho to Colorado, as parts of the U.S. interior that were paralyzed by blizzards and floods last month braced for round two of an unusual weather phenomenon. 

Welcome to springtime in the Rockies and parts of the Great Plains. 

It's not unusual for floods, snow and fire to co-exist in the Rockies thanks to powerful storms blowing through the mountains, melting snow swelling waterways and high winds sweeping across dry grasslands and trees that haven't seen their first green shoots and leaves.
Those conditions are what drove a wildfire Sunday on southeastern Montana's Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, where a house fire sparked a blaze that quickly burned through 1,700 acres of dry grass and trees. It forced evacuations Sunday in Lame Deer, a town of about 2,000 people that is the seat of the tribal government, before fire crews were able to contain it. 

Also normal are the fire warnings issued for eastern Colorado on Monday, a day after a wildfire near Colorado Springs forced the temporary evacuation of about 20 homes.
Forecasters frequently issue red flag warnings for March and April on the eastern and southeastern Colorado plains as the jet stream moves southward and brings stronger weather systems and higher wind, said Jennifer Stark, meteorologist in charge for the National Weather Service in Pueblo, Colorado. 

"This is the time of year when we get a roller coaster of weather," Colorado state climatologist Russ Schumacher said Monday. "Going from 80 degree temperatures one day to a snowstorm the next is not that out of the ordinary, especially in March and April, around here."
But what is unusual is what's coming next. A storm system that is moving in from the Pacific Ocean is forecast to intensify and form into a new inland "bomb cyclone." 

A bomb cyclone is a rapid drop in air pressure - at least 24 millibars in 24 hours - and often is over or near oceans or seas because it requires warm moist air smacking into cold dry air, along with volatile weather from the jet stream.
. . . this would be the second such storm in less than a month. The March 13 storm caused massive flooding in the Midwest, a blizzard in Colorado and Wyoming, and produced winds of between 96 mph and 110 mph. 

This week's bomb cyclone one is expected to be similar in intensity and in snowfall, meteorologists said. Heavy, wet snow will fall from the Nebraska panhandle through south-central and southeastern South Dakota into western Minnesota. Wind speeds can reach 50 mph to 60 mph across Kansas. (Western Journal) Read more
- Father God, we continue to lift up the dams that are situated all along the Missouri River, that they will hold in this next "weather bomb" cyclone. We also lift up the two nuclear power plants that are also in the path of this storm: the Fort Calhoun and the Cooper. We ask that Your hand of protection would rest upon these structures, in Your name, amen.

" . . . in wrath, remember mercy." (Habakkuk 3:2)

How new cancer 'vaccine' fights tumors throughout the body

A new cancer "vaccine" that's injected directly into a single tumor can trigger the immune system to attack cancer cells throughout the body, a small new study suggests. 

The researchers say that the experimental therapy essentially turns tumors into "cancer vaccine factories," where immune cells learn to recognize the cancer before seeking it out and destroying it in other parts of the body. "[We're] seeing tumors all throughout the body melting away" after injecting just one tumor, said lead study author Dr. Joshua Brody, director of the Lymphoma Immunotherapy Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.
Still, the research, published today (April 8) in the journal Nature Medicine, is very preliminary. The therapy has only been tested in 11 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (a cancer of immune system cells), and not all of these patients responded to the treatment. But some patients did have remission for relatively long periods, and the results were promising enough that the therapy is now also being tested in patients with breast and head and neck cancers, the authors said.
What's more, the "vaccine" appears to substantially boost the effectiveness of another type of immunotherapy called "checkpoint blockade" - the same therapy that former President Jimmy Carter received to treat his metastatic melanoma in 2015. ("Immunotherapy" refers to treatments that harness the immune system to fight cancer.)
The two therapies "are remarkably synergistic," Brody told Live Science. So far, the researchers have only tested the combined therapies in mice, but they are optimistic that the combined therapies could benefit cancer patients, particularly those that aren't getting much benefit from current immunotherapy treatments.

Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].
Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God." [Romans 13:1]


Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes all who wish to pray for our leaders to join us in prayer for our nation. You may sign up to receive our alerts by sending an email to us at requesting that your name be added to our list of subscribers.
