1. Turkey's Edogan To Discuss Possible Operation In Syria With Putin- RIA - Jerusalem Post
MOSCOW - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said he planned to discuss a possible Turkish military operation in Syria when he visits Moscow for talks with President Vladimir Putin on Monday, Russia's RIA news agency reported.
Erdogan has vowed to crush US-backed Kurdish fighters east of the Euphrates in Syria and said last year that preparations were complete for an operation.
Turkey, Washington's main Muslim ally within NATO, considers Syria's YPG Kurdish militia an enemy and has already intervened to sweep the fighters from territory west of the Euphrates in military campaigns over the past two years.
2. Bennett: 'Only Shaked and I will guard the land' - Israel National News
Education Minister and joint Chairman of the New Right, in an interview with Arutz Sheva less than a day before the opening of the polling stations, talks about preparations and efforts to wake up voters.
"The situation on the right isn't simple: The right-wing bloc stands at 67 seats, but Netanyahu's anguishing over specifically the New Right is liable to hurt us very much. It's not completely clear to me why he marked Ayelet Shaked and me, since it damages the entire bloc," says Bennett, noting that a blow to his party could lead to Ayelet Shaked, the best Justice Minister in the history of the State of Israel, as he puts it, to no longer be Justice Minister.
In Bennett's assessment, the Israeli right is internalizing his efforts and those of Minister Shaked to block the possibility of establishing a Palestinian state, and this is precisely why Netanyahu is focusing on siphoning votes from his party. "It seems he's trying to remove the barrier to a Palestinian state."
3. 'We won't evacuate communities and won't build communities' - Israel National News
Dr. Yoaz Hendel, a candidate for the Knesset on the Blue and White Knesset list, on Monday rejected Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's claims that Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid's party is a leftist party, and promised that there will be no uprooting of communities in Judea and Samaria.
"If Netanyahu's argument is the evacuation of communities, then let's examine who evacuated communities, who voted for the disengagement, who froze construction, who gave the Bar-Ilan speech and supported two states for two peoples, it was neither Gantz nor Bogie," Hendel told Arutz Sheva.
"Bogie was the only one who resigned during the disengagement, the only one who voted against the Shalit deal. I really think that it humiliates the religious Zionist voters to assert that they are such idiots who do not remember history. Netanyahu says he will exercise sovereignty? Do me a favor . . . I live next to Gush Etzion, sovereignty has not been applied to one centimeter for 10 years, and Netanyahu has been prime minister for 13 years. I do not believe that there is one Israeli who buys this promise," he continued.
4. Netanyahu, Gantz make final appeal to voters - Israel Hayom
Party leaders made their final pitch to voters on Monday, less than 24 hours before voting began in more than 10,000 polling stations across Israel.
Both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his chief rival, the head of the center-left bloc Blue and White Benny Gantz, appealed to voters, asking for a clear mandate in the next Knesset to lead the country.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toured Jerusalem's open-air Mahane Yehuda market, which is considered a Likud bastion, warning shopkeepers that the center-left bloc Blue and White might was on the verge of toppling the Right.
Netanyahu, who has given a torrent of interviews to drive home this message, reiterated his claim that if Likud did not win the most seats in the Knesset, it would be denied the chance to form the next government because small right-wing parties would join a left-wing coalition.
5. Palestinian Authority warns of 'chaos, violence' if Netanyahu annexes parts of Judea, Samaria - World Israel News
Palestinian Authority (PA) senior figures warned of a parade of horribles if Israel annexes parts of Judea and Samaria.
On Sunday, Palestinian Liberation Organization Secretary General Saeb Erekat said the move would bring a "cycle of violence and chaos" while speaking at the World Economic Forum in Jordan.
We heard Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking openly about his intentions to separate the West Bank and Gaza Strip and about annexing the West Bank," Erekat said according to Israel's Channel 13. "The international community cannot treat Israel as a state that is above the law," he said.
Earlier comments by Erekat on April 6 were tweeted by the PLO's official Twitter account. He said, "Such a statement by Netanyahu is not surprising. Israel will continue to brazenly violate international law for as long as the international community will continue to reward Israel with impunity."

1. Dems ramp up anti-Trump probes post-Mueller, despite pledge to focus on agenda - Fox News
Days after the summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report rocked Washington, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats should shift focus to their legislative agenda.
But while some in the caucus have indeed pivoted to issues like health care, senior Democratic lawmakers have sought to keep the investigations humming, ramping up their anti-Trump probes on a variety of fronts while mounting a battle with the Justice Department over access to the complete Mueller report and its underlying materials.
Last week, the House Judiciary Committee voted to authorize subpoenas for five former Trump advisers, intensifying the committee's sweeping probe into Trump and his personal, business and political dealings. This came as the committee voted along party lines to authorize subpoenas for the full Mueller report. Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., already has sent document requests to 81 individuals and entities connected to the president, as part of his probe into "alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump."
Meanwhile, the House Ways and Means Committee asked the Internal Revenue Service for six years of the president's personal and business tax returns. Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., formally requested the returns-marking the first request in 45 years for such documents related to a sitting president. The move is sure to set up a legal showdown between congressional Democrats and the White House. (Read more)
- Lord, we ask that You make a way to force Democrats to cease their agenda against this President so that they will focus on the items needed for America's well-being. We pray for their souls and a move of Your Spirit to bring conviction and truth, removing deception and lies.
- "You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked." (Psalm 97:10)
2. Nunes to send eight criminal referrals to DOJ concerning leaks, conspiracy amid Russia probe - Fox News
House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes exclusively told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" that he is preparing to send eight criminal referrals to the Department of Justice this week concerning alleged misconduct from "Watergate wannabes" during the Trump-Russia investigation, including the leaks of "highly classified material" and conspiracies to lie to Congress and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court.
The dramatic step comes as Republicans have pushed for the release of key documents to uncover the origins of the now-discredited narrative that the Trump campaign colluded improperly with the Russian government. President Trump recently told Fox News he would release the entirety of the FISA applications used to surveil one of his top aides, and other related documents.
Nunes said he has been working on the referrals for more than two years, and wanted to wait until the confirmation of Attorney General Bill Barr. "We're prepared this week to notify the attorney general that we're prepared to send those referrals over," Nunes said. "First of all, all of these are classified or sensitive. Five of them are what I would call straight up referrals -- so just referrals that name someone and name the specific crimes," Nunes told Maria Bartiromo. "Those crimes are lying to Congress, misleading Congress, leaking classified information. So five of them are those types." (Read more)
- Lord, we pray for those in leadership who have leaked, lied, and caused havoc in our government to be held accountable for their actions.
- "For the Lord loves justice" (Psalm 37: 28a)
3. Mulvaney on Trump's Tax Returns: Democrats Will 'Never' See Those, 'Nor Should They' - Political Insider
In an exclusive interview on "Fox News Sunday," Mick Mulvaney, acting White House chief of staff, said that Democrats will "never" see President Donald Trump's tax returns and that "voters knew the president could have given his tax returns [during the election]. They knew that he didn't and they elected him anyway."
Mulvaney's remarks followed comments by the president himself earlier this week on the topic after those on the Left renewed calls for Trump's tax data. "Oh, no, never - nor should they [see the returns]," Mulvaney (shown above right) told Fox News' Bill Hemmer, who was sitting in for host Chris Wallace.
Mulvaney added Democrats "know" they won't get the returns - and that they "just want attention on the issue because they don't want to talk to us about policy." Mulvaney also said that the conclusions of the Mueller report, as presented in Attorney General Bill Barr's summary, caught the Democrats "flat-footed." He said that "they really did believe that Mueller would find collusion and find obstruction. In fact, they invest very heavily in that, and then to be blindsided like that, to find out there's no obstruction, no collusion - I really think they were never expecting it." (Read more)
- Lord, the Democrats are once again trying everything they can to cause Trump to fail. We pray that You will continue to block them from succeeding, and protect the President from harm.
- "Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your glory to their children."
4. Liberal Dark Money Group to Receive Private Briefing From House Dem Jerrold Nadler - Free Beacon
The largest donors on the left will be given a private briefing on investigations into President Donald Trump by House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) during a secretive Texas gathering this week, according to documents obtained exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon.
The Democracy Alliance, a group of millionaire and billionaire funders of the liberal movement, is holding its Spring Partner Retreat and Strategy Conference at the Four Seasons hotelin Austin, where security has been patrolling the meeting areas since Wednesday. As always at the group's secretive meetings, all programming is off the record and closed to members of the media.
Nadler, who has made headlines by leading the charge to investigate Trump in the House, was a late addition to the conference program, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and can be viewed in full below.
Nadler will join the donors via live video to lead a discussion titled, "After the Mueller Report: What's Next?" (Read more)
- Lord, we pray that this "dark money" issue would be revealed to the Light in a manner that will cause it to be dispelled.
- "Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O Lord, and that a foolish people has blasphemed Your name." (Psalm 74:18)
5. Trump picks former presidential candidate Cain for Fed board - Reuters
U.S. President Donald Trump plans to nominate former pizza chain executive and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board, where he will help set interest rates for the world's biggest economy.
"I have recommended him highly for the Fed," Trump said in a press conference on Thursday. "I've told my folks that's the man."
Trump has been a vocal and strident critic of the Fed's rate hikes under Jerome Powell, whom the president picked two years ago to chair the U.S. central bank. Trump's other Fed appointees have also supported the Powell Fed's rate hikes, which the president has said hurt the economy.
This year the Fed has put rate hikes on hold, citing a slowing economy and risks from overseas. Trump, meanwhile, has continued to rail against the Fed, even as he has said he will nominate conservative commentator Stephen Moore, a proponent of rate cuts, for a second vacant seat on the Fed Board. (Read more)
- Father, we ask that if this nomination is from You, that he will be appointed without problems. Grant him wisdom and understanding in this new position.
- "When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve ou, understanding will keep you." (Proverbs2:10,11)
6. Pro-Life Groups Gear Up For Born Alive Bill Fight - Free Beacon
Several major pro-life groups say the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is the single-most important bill of the 2019 legislative session. Legislative Republicans are working to pass a bill to ensure that doctors provide life-saving care to infants who survive abortion. The bills, however, have been met with a Democratic blockade, despite heavy support from the party's base. Pro-life groups say they are monitoring each politician's position on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and plan on publicizing the results for all constituents to see. March for Life Action, the political arm of the annual protest against abortion, said the treatment of the Born Alive Act will be a major driver in its annual scorecard for lawmakers. It will grade representatives just as harshly for blocking a vote on the bill as for an actual "No" vote.
"We call on all Members to join the majority of Americans and recognize that a child born alive, even if she has been marked for abortion, has a right to life that should be protected," Tom McClusky, president of March for Life Action, said in an email. "Open hostility towards any pro-life legislation on the part of current House Democratic Leadership makes this necessary."
Senate Democrats blocked the passage of Sen. Ben Sasse's (R., Neb.) proposed infant protections with only three Democrats joining the Republican majority. The Democrat-controlled House has refused to hold a floor vote on a similar bill. House Republicans are now campaigning for a discharge petition to rescue it from dying in the Judiciary Committee. (Read more)
- Father, this truly is the most important bill for this legislative year. We pray for You to reveal the truth, and bring conviction to the hearts of those who constantly stand against that truth. We ask that You grant the discharge petition as our legislators fight for the lives of the unborn.
- "Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; though they join forces, none will go unpunished." (Proverbs 16:5)
7. Bipartisan IRS reform bill heads to House floor - The Hill
A House panel on Tuesday advanced bipartisan bills aimed at modernizing the IRS and boosting retirement savings, with lawmakers and outside groups hopeful legislation on these topics finally gets enacted this year. The Ways and Means Committee approved the IRS and retirement bills by voice vote. The panel also approved a third bill by voice vote, which focused on extending reemployment services to all workers receiving unemployment benefits. Lawmakers in both parties and in both chambers have been working on IRS and retirement legislation for years, and the bills approved by the Ways and Means Committee reflect a growing consensus.
The IRS bill includes provisions to make targeted reforms to the agency in a host of areas, including services to low-income taxpayers, taxpayer rights during the enforcement process, identity theft protection, information technology and electronic systems. (Read more)
- Lord, we pray that new reforms for the IRS will help and not hinder all Americans.
- "All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits."(Proverbs 16:2)
8. U.S. Home to Nearly 20% of World's Migrant Population - Breitbart
The Pew Research Center reveals in a new study that the U.S. has admitted more foreign nationals than any other country in the world. Roughly 18 percent of the world's migrant population lives in the U.S., the study found.
In total, the U.S. is home to more foreign-born residents than Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and France combined. The 44.5 million foreign-born population living in the country marks a nearly 108-year record high of immigration to the U.S.
Mass immigration has come at the expense of America's working and middle class, which has suffered from poor job growth, stagnant wages, and increased public costs to offset the importation of millions of low-skilled foreign nationals. (Read more)
- Lord, we ask that You will stem the tide of illegal immigration to America. We need Your help to stop those who are pushing the caravans to come here, not only at great risk to those in the caravans, but harming our own citizens as a result. We continue to repent for the sins of our nation, and pray that we will seek Your face to hear from heaven on all that come against us.
- "Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said, 'Seek My face', My heart said to You, 'Your face, Lord I will seek.'"(Psalm 27:7,8)
9. Devices left on UK rail lines in suspected pro-Brexit 'sabotage' plot- Irish Times
British police are investigating attempts to sabotage rail lines after two devices bearing pro-Brexit slogans were planted on train tracks.
Two "malicious obstructions" were left on tracks near Yaxley, Cambridgeshire, on March 21st and at Netherfield, Nottinghamshire, on March 27th.
They bore the slogans "Government betrayal. Leave means leave" and "We will bring this country to its knees if we don't leave", which were printed, not handwritten. The devices would not have caused permanent damage or loss of life, but were meant to cause disruption, police said. Services were not disrupted and detectives are now hunting the offenders before try strike again or injure themselves.
Assistant chief constable Sean O'Callaghan of the British Transport police, said: "This was a serious and deliberate attempt by someone to cause significant sabotage and disruption to Britain's rail network. (Read more)
- Father, as the UK faces upheaval over the Brexit- its exit from the EU, we pray for peace over the British people. We ask that You ignite revival over Britain, revealing Your heart and truth to them.
- "Ask, and you shall receive . . ." (Matthew 7:7)
10. Iran Warns 'Idiotic' U.S. it Will 'Retaliate' if Republican Guards Designated as Terrorists - Breitbart
If Washington designates Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as terrorists then Tehran will immediately retailiate in kind, a majority of Iranian parliamentarians said on Sunday.
The United States is expected to designate the Revolutionary Guards a foreign terrorist organization, according to Reuters, marking the first time Washington has formally labeled another country's military a terrorist group.
This has prompted an immediate response by 255 out of the 290 Iranian lawmakers, the domestic IRNA news agency reported. They said:
We will answer any action taken against this force with a reciprocal action.
So the leaders of America, who themselves are the creators and supporters of terrorists in the (Middle East) region, will regret this inappropriate and idiotic action.(Read more)
- Father, You know that the IRCG has been complicit in terrorist actions for decades. We pray against any move they might make that would harm our forces, and move across these hardline enemies to change their ways.
- "You have delivered me from the violent man." (Psalm 18:48d)
11. Breaking! Secret Service director to step down, on heels of Nielsen resignation - Fox News
U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph 'Tex' Alles is stepping down from his post, officials said Monday, in the latest shake-up at the Department of Homeland Security following outgoing Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's resignation.
Sources told Fox News on Monday that Alles was notified 10 days ago to "prepare an exit plan," in a signal that a transition in leadership at the Department of Homeland Security was imminent. Alles was told that he should be prepared to leave his post as head of the Secret Service as part of that transition.
"United States Secret Service director Randolph 'Tex' Alles has done a great job at the agency over the last two years, and the President is thankful for his over 40 years of service to the country," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a brief statement Monday.
She said that Trump has picked career Secret Service member James M. Murray to take over the agency in May. Alles will remain in his role until then. A law enforcement official told Fox News that, inside the agency, the news of Alles' departure came as a surprise. (Read more)
- As President Trump continues to make management decisions inside the West Wing, we thank You that You are leading him by the right hand, showing him the way he should go. Amen.
- "For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." (Isaiah 41:13)
12. Breaking News: Trump designates Iran's Revolutionary Guard a 'foreign terrorist organization' - Fox News
President Trump on Monday formally labeled Iran's Revolutionary Guard a "foreign terrorist organization," in Washington's first such designation for an entire foreign government entity.
The announcement, which officials said would put the military organization on the same level as terror groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, is the latest administration step to increase pressure on Iran.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing the IRGC's ties to terror plots, said the designation recognizes a "basic reality. This designation is a direct response to an outlaw regime and should surprise no one," he said. "The IRGC masquerades as a legitimate military organization, but none of us should be fooled."

Biden's sorry not sorry tour
It's an amazing double standard being played out in the media and by Democratic Party leadership. But we have all too readily grown accustomed to the accusations of others while the accuser does the same thing or worse. We seem to give it a pass. Think about all the scurrilous deals between the Clintons and Russia, between Hillary Clinton's campaign manager and Russia, the pay to play of Clinton at the State Department, the previous "president" using a secret court to spy on the current president. Or how about the raking through the mud and manure pile of Supreme Court nominee Bret Kavanaugh over accusations by women that went unproven? Well, now. When the shoe is on the other foot, it somehow doesn't fit.
Several women are accusing democratic Presidential front-runner Joe Biden of inappropriate behavior. The news media and the Democratic Party are giving him a pass, saying "Oh, that's just Joe being Joe. He just doesn't know." Biden's defense to reporters is, "The fact of the matter is I made it clear that if I made anyone feel [uncomfortable], I feel badly about that. It was never my intention. Ever. I'm sorry I didn't understand more. I'm not sorry for any of my intentions. I'm not sorry for anything that I have ever done. I have never been disrespectful intentionally to a man or a woman. So that's not the reputation I've had since I was in high school, for God's sake." So, I guess that's the end of it. This, however, is the reputation he has had since he has been in politics. But he's not sorry and the media and his party are ok with that.
One thing he is sorry for is the existence of white males. In his attempt to rewrite history over the sexual allegation claims of Anita Hill 28 years ago against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, Biden recently said, "I wish I could have done something. But I also realized there was a real and perceived problem the committee faced. We were a bunch of white guys hearing this testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. To this day, I regret I couldn't come up with a way to get her the kind of hearing she deserved given the courage she showed by reaching out to us." There is a pattern here. Biden and his party use accusations of inappropriate sexual advances against people they want to defeat, but downplay them and attack the accusers when they are accused themselves.
The manure show going on in the news media and in the Democratic Party should be embarrassing to every American citizen. The hypocrisy, lies, skullduggery, lack of ethics, moral depravity and down-right meanness is unprecedented in American history. Not that Republicans don't do the same, but their platform doesn't support communism, infanticide, sexual anarchy, lawlessness against the constitution, and unsecured borders-just to name a few. If you say you are of God, be of God. Don't wink at those who are as described in Titus 1:16, "They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." Don't be a Biden-a sorry person yet not sorry.
Have a blessed and powerful day,

Signs and Wonders
From blizzards to tornadoes to extreme temperature drops, a wild weather week ahead
A potent storm is expected to bring blizzard conditions to portions of the northern Plains and Upper Midwest this week, where some spots could see as much as 2 feet of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
The storm will get started Tuesday, and snow is likely over much of the northern Rockies by the evening. It will pick up in intensity as it moves into the central USA by Wednesday and into Thursday.
In much of the region, travel "may become difficult to impossible," the weather service warned. "Road closures are possible, potentially including along stretches of Interstates 29, 80 and 90," the Weather Channel said.
The heaviest snow will be in Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota, according to weathermodels.com meteorologist Ryan Maue. Blizzard warnings will probably be issued in those states.
Minneapolis/St. Paul will be the largest metro area in the path of the snowstorm. The weather service in Minnesota said snow may be heavy at times: as much as 2 inches of snow per hour.
Snowfall in the Twin Cities in April isn't unheard of: The area got 13.8 inches on a single day in April 1983.
Winds will howl as the storm cranks up, and gusts could hit 40-60 mph. The strongest winds will whip through the central and southern Plains, AccuWeather said.
Wild temperature drops will bring weather whiplash: After a high near 80 degrees Tuesday in Denver, the low late Wednesday will be in the 20s with wind chills in the teens.
Severe weather, including the chance for tornadoes, is possible later in the week. The greatest risk for severe weather will be in the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys Thursday. The storm threat Friday will be in the East. (USA Today) Read more

Federal Court UPHOLDS Kentucky Law Forcing Abortionists
to Offer Women Ultrasounds: "Historic Day!"
"This also inherently provides the patient with more knowledge about the effect of an abortion procedure: it shows her what, or whom, she is consenting to terminate. That this information might persuade a woman to change her mind does not render it suspect under the First Amendment. It just means that it is pertinent to her decision-making." - Jude John Bush
Pro-lifers in Kentucky won a victory Thursday when a three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the state's law requiring abortionists to give women the opportunity to view ultrasound images of their children before abortion.
"Today is a historic day, as Kentucky continues to lead the charge in implementing strong pro-life protections for its citizens," Kentucky's Republican Gov. Matt Bevin responded to the ruling. "We applaud the decision by the Sixth Circuit, which affirms the commonsense notion that patients should be well equipped with relevant information before making important medical decisions. I am grateful to be governor of a state that values every human life, and we are committed to continue our fight on behalf of the most vulnerable among us." (LifesiteNews) Read more.
