Pence's "Turnaround": Mystery Solved

Pence's mysteriously canceled NH trip linked to presence of suspected drug dealer

Vice President Mike Pence's abrupt and mysterious scrapping of plans to fly to New Hampshire and return to the White House earlier this month occurred, in part, because of concerns he could come in contact with a suspected drug dealer under federal investigation, Fox News has learned.

The abrupt cancellation of Pence's trip to Salem on July 2 has prompted confusion and speculation. At the time, a senior White House official told reporters the situation wasn't related to national security or the health of Pence or President Trump.

On Monday, Politico reported that among the concerns was Pence's potential proximity to Jeff Hatch, a former New York Giants player who was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration over the movement of fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire. Hatch, according to Politico, pleaded guilty to federal drug charges in court on Friday.
An email address listed for Hatch at Granite Recovery Centers was no longer active on Monday. Hatch also did not comment to Politico.

Fox News was told that Hatch, who worked at a treatment center that Pence had planned to visit, is only part of the reason why the trip was scrapped.

The unusual sequence of events began with a crowd in Salem was waiting for Pence to participate in a roundtable discussion on the illegal drug flow in New Hampshire. But shortly before the vice president was to arrive, an announcer told the crowd that Air Force Two was no longer able to come to New Hampshire.

Pence's chief of staff, Marc Short, later told reporters that Pence had boarded the plane, but that Air Force Two hadn't left the ground. Short said at the time that details of the events would be made public "in a few weeks."

In a recent interview with Fox News, Pence refused to disclose the reasons.

"Facts came to our attention that made it no longer appropriate for us to make the trip," Pence said. "And I can't discuss it."

Without going into details, the vice president said the reason had "nothing to do with the White House. Nothing to do with the administration." He said he hoped to be able to speak about it eventually.

"I hope we have the opportunity to discuss the reasons in the future, but I'm very confident that we made the right decision," he said. (Fox News) Read more.
- Father God, we thank you for a "good ending" to this story, that two weeks ago had overwhelmed the news reports. We recall that, at the time, President Trump, too, told the public that this strange turn of events had nothing to with the White House, but that the answer to this mystery would be found in New Hampshire "in about two weeks."

Now, two weeks later, that facts confirm the President's statement. We thank You, Father God, for giving us a leader who truly has the best interests of our people at heart, and who works to calm the fears of the public, as needed. In Your Name, Amen.

- "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (I Timothy 2:1,2)

1. Deputy Hezbollah leader: If war breaks out, the entire region will burn - Israel National News

Hezbollah's deputy leader, Naim Qassem, threatened on Monday in an interview with the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV channel that "if a war breaks out between Iran and the United States, it will not be limited only to Iran, the entire region will burn."

Qassem added that "opponents of the United States will be one force, and Israel will also take part in the war."

2. Hamas Official Tells Iranian Leader Group Is Tehran Regime's 'First Line of Defense' - Algemeiner

A top Hamas official met on Sunday with Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and told him that his group was the Tehran regime's "first line of defense."

According to Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot, Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri met with Khamenei in Tehran and presented him with a letter from Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.

"Any aggression against Iran is aggression against Palestine and against the resistance," al-Arouri said. Khamenei said, "The Palestinian issue is the most important in the Muslim world, and the victory in it will not be achieved without resistance and struggle." "Hamas is in the heart of Palestine, just as Palestine is in the heart of the Muslim world," he added. Khamenei also praised Hamas' military abilities, saying, "Not many years ago, Palestinians were fighting with stones, but today they are fighting with precision missiles."

3. Israel's health system suffers from 'systemic failures,' report says - Times Of Israel

Israel's health system has been subject to systemic failures in planning, budgeting and regulation by the government, resulting in an acute shortage of beds, inefficiencies and gaps in accessibility of treatment, a report by the Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel said.

The study by Prof. Dov Chernichovsky and Roi Kfir looks at the hospital system in Israel, showing the country lags behind others in the 36-member Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in number of hospital beds, and has shorter hospital stays and particularly high occupancy rates.

In Israel, the number of hospital beds per 1,000 people is 2.2 versus 3.6 in the OECD. While the number of beds is trending down in most countries, the decline is especially sharp in Israel - a 22 percent decline versus an OECD average of 15% between 2002 and 2017.

The shorter average hospitalization time in Israel - about five days per patient in contrast to an average of 6.7 days among all OECD countries - and the high occupancy rate, about 94% versus an average of 75% in the OECD, diminishes hospitals' ability to handle emergencies and points to a potentially lower level of treatment quality, the report said.

4. Arab Arsonists Attack Efrat's Eitam Hill, Causing Massive Damage - Jewish Press

The scorched earth and the blackened bits of charred twigs are all that remained to let people know that Palestinian Authority terrorists had attacked the blossoming farm where Jewish youth were working to build something to mark the life of Ari Fuld, hy'd.

No one was injured or killed in the arson attack that took place on Eitam Hill, behind the town of Efrat on the southern outskirts of Jerusalem on Monday but it was painful to see all their hard work burned to the ground. "Terrorists rolled burning tires into our area and the fire immediately caught in the fields," said Elyashiv Kimchi, who founded the site.

5. Ayelet Shaked appointed party leader, seeks united right-wing bloc - World Israel News

Confirming reports circulating in the Israeli media, Ayelet Shaked made an official announcement on Sunday evening that she will serve as party leader for the New Right faction.

This development represents a new direction for the party, which failed to cross the electoral threshold in April elections following a campaign led by Naftali Bennett.

Bennett introduced Shaked at a Sunday press conference during which she made the announcement, calling on other right wing parties to come together under Shaked's leadership prior to the next round of elections in September.

During the announcement, Shaked commented that until now "there had been no party led by a woman" competing in the upcoming elections.

The Daily Brief

1. White House expected to roll out merit-based immigration proposal this week - OANN

The White House is getting ready to roll out a new bill designed to overhaul the U.S. immigration system. Senior Adviser Jared Kushner unveiled parts of the proposal to high ranking cabinet members on Tuesday. According to reports, the plan is a more fleshed out version of the president's "merit-based" immigration proposal he released back in may this year.

The proposal includes legislation to end the visa lottery and make the process to declare asylum more competitive. It eliminates the chain migration system and replaces it with a new merit-based system that favors highly-skilled workers. If enacted, the bill would also impose a nationwide E-verify system allowing employers to see if job candidates is legally allowed to work in the country.

McConnell noted that the key to passing immigration reform was keeping it bipartisan, and said Democrats would be reluctant to sign off on any bill that did not provide protections for so called Dreamers. However, pundits have suggested the purpose of the plan may not be to sway Democrats, but instead serve as a political litmus test for Republicans on immigration issues. (Read more)

- Lord, we thank You for this new bill and ask that You find a way to pass it over and above the leftist complaints.

- "In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, for You will answer me." (Psalm 86:7)

2. Kyrsten Sinema, Eight Other Senators Sign Letter To Speed Up Removal Of Certain Migrants - Daily Caller

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is aiming to implement a program at the U.S.-Mexico border that would speed up the removal of migrants without valid asylum claims. The Arizona Democrat joined eight other senators in signing a letter Wednesday to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, The Arizona Republic reported.

The letter detailed how the pilot program, which is called "Operation Safe Return," would allow for some migrants to be deported within 15 days. "This pilot program would apply to families who aren't claiming 'credible fear,' which of course is the first threshold in seeking asylum," Sinema told The Arizona Republic. "If someone says, 'I left my country because I can't make a living,' [or] 'It's hard to take care of my family' - that's what we call an economic migrant."

Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Rob Portman of Ohio, James Lankford of Oklahoma, John Barrasso and Michael Enzi of Wyoming, and John Cornyn of Texas signed the letter. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Doug Jones of Alabama signed the letter as well. "We wanted to solve the problem," Sinema said. "We wanted to protect the asylum process for valid applicants." (Read more)

- Father, we pray that the removal of migrants with invalid asylum claims will be swift and soon. If this bill is the vehicle to do that, was ask that it pass. If it is not, we pray for the right bill to be drawn up.

3. Ilhan Omar's Father was Top Propaganda Official in Genocidal Barre Regime - Then He Changed His Name and Entered US Illegally - Gateway Pundit

On Thursday David Steinberg published an extensive report on the alleged crimes and history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and the "Omar" family.

In his report David found that the Omar family changed their name in order to enter the United States. Omar's Father Was Top Propaganda Official In Genocidal Barre Regime He Changed His Name And Entered US ILLEGALLY.

In 1995, Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the "Omar" family.

That is not her family. The Omar family is a second, unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family.

Ilhan's genetic family split up at this time. The above three received asylum in the United States, while Ilhan's three other siblings - using their real names - managed to get asylum in the United Kingdom.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar's name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi. Her father's name before applying for asylum was Nur Said Elmi Mohamed. Her sister Sahra Noor's name before applying for asylum was Sahra Nur Said Elmi. Her three siblings who were granted asylum by the United Kingdom are Leila Nur Said Elmi, Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. Power Line also included this graphic on the Omar Elmi family. (Read more)

4. Nadler: Substantial evidence President Trump 'guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors' contained in Mueller report - Fox News

Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., accused President Trump of committing "high crimes and misdemeanors" on "Fox News Sunday" this week and said Trump's infractions meet the standard of impeachment.

"The [Mueller] report presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and we have to present - or let Mueller present those facts to the American people and then see where we go from there," he said.

"Because the administration must be held accountable and no president can be above the law." (Read more)

- Father, the hate and rancor against this President never stops, no matter what is found the Democrats see the opposite. We take authority over the rulers of darkness that are running these accusations, bind them tightly in Jesus' Name, and rebuke satan for every word spoken outside of Your Will for America. We apply the cross of Christ to the President and ask for Your mercy to cover him.

- "Righteousness and justice are the foundations of Your throne; mercy and truth go before Your face." (Psalm 89:14)

5. House Passes Bill to Raise Federal Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour - RealClearPolitics

While the increase would boost pay for some 30 million low-wage workers, intended as one answer to income inequality, passage was assured only after centrist Democrats won adjustments to the bill. They pushed for changes, including a slower six-year phase-in of the wage. It's a reminder of moderates' influence on policy, but also the limits.

A hike in the $7.25 hourly wage has been a top Democratic campaign promise, and what Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland called Thursday the "right thing to do." The last increase in the federal minimum occurred 10 years ago, the longest stretch without an adjustment since the wage floor was first enacted during the 1930s. The wage protection covers millions of low-wage workers in all types of jobs.

Under the House bill, for the first time, tipped workers would be required to be paid the same as others earning the minimum, boosting their pay to $15 an hour, too. It's now $2.13, in what labor scholars call a jarring remnant from the legacy of slavery, when newly freed workers received only tips. (Read more)

- Lord, this bill would cause layoffs, and hours to be cut for those who need them the most.We ask that it not be passed. Bring truth to both sides of the aisle.

- "Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding." (Proverbs 3:13)

6. As lawyers zero in on drug companies, a reckoning may be coming - Washington Post

For two decades, as 200,000 opioid overdose deaths piled up across America, there was always someone else to blame. Families blamed drug companies. Drug companies blamed doctors. Everyone blamed the government.

More than half the public continues to see drug addiction as a moral failing, blaming substance abusers themselves for the epidemic, at least in part, according to recent polling.

But now the effort to hold someone to account for the worst drug crisis in U.S. history is narrowing to a few dozen drug companies whose day in court has come or will soon arrive. Virtually every state and nearly 2,000 towns, cities and counties have demanded those firms, which include some of America's most trusted brands, be forced to pay up to help stop the epidemic.

"It is a drug company crisis, and it begins and should end with them," Oklahoma attorney Bradley Beckworth told a judge this week in the first state drug trial of the opioid era. The state is seeking $17.5 billion from the health care conglomerate Johnson & Johnson to address the costs of addiction. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that You will pull down strongholds against drug addiction in these areas. We also ask for Your mighty hand of healing for all who need the drugs for real reasons.

- "Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled." (Psalm 6:2)

7. Lyme disease expert champions investigation into Pentagon weaponizing ticks: 'It's a courageous move'- Fox News

Kris Newby, author of "Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons," discussed how ticks can be weaponized during an interview with "Fox & Friends Sunday" and supported an investigation into whether or not the Pentagon attempted this feat during the Cold War.

She was responding to a call from House lawmakers for an investigation into the Pentagon to find out if it contributed to the outbreak of Lyme disease that's currently ravaging the country.

"I think it's a courageous move and I'm really excited about it because a lot of those Cold War experiments . . . right out of Dr. Strangelove, are classified," she said. Newby, who works as a science writer for the Stanford University School of Medicine, said much of the government's information on the subject is being kept hidden, but expressed optimism about getting to the truth now that Congress is involved. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask for any hidden things to be revealed with regard to any covert operations to weaponize any creatures.

- "And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account." (Hebrews 4:13)

8. Cali wildfire bailout results in electric rates 70% higher than national average - American Thinker

California's proposed $26 billion bailout of bankrupt PG&E's wildfire liability will push the state's average residential electric rates to 70 percent higher than national average.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill on July 18 that supposedly will share equally between Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) shareholders and its customer the estimated $21 billion liability for 2017 and 2018 wildfire losses. The deal is also contingent on PG&E and the state's other two investor-owned utilities, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas, contribute another $5 billion to cover losses.

According to the latest U.S. Energy Information Agency report, California's residential electric rates currently average 18.05 cents per kilowatt hour (kwh) versus a national average for the other states of 13.16 cents / kwh. Despite already being 37 percent higher than the national average, the bailout will push rates up to about 22.22 cents / kwh, or almost 70 percent higher than the national average.

PG&E is the seventh largest U.S. electric utility. The company has 106,681 circuit miles of electric distribution lines, 18,466 circuit miles of interconnected transmission lines, and 24,000 employees to service 5.4 million customer accounts for 16 million residents. The State of California has implemented a series of disastrous policies since the 1990s to slash utility profit margins, demand conversion to much more expensive sustainable electricity generation, and shriveled spending money on forest management. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for a release of the people of California from undue regulations and costs to live there. We ask that somehow You bring wisdom to the leadership or remove it.

- "The Lord will destroy the house of the proud." (Proverbs 15:25a)

9. Rosselló will stay as Puerto Rico governor but won't seek re-election - NBC

Puerto Rico's scandal-scarred governor, Ricardo Rosselló, said Sunday that he won't resign but that he will step down as head of his party and won't seek re-election in 2020.

"Saying sorry is not the only thing I can do," Rosselló said in a live address, saying he knew "I have to work" to regain islanders' trust.

Tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans have taken to the streets demanding that Rosselló resign after corruption investigations and 889 pages of private chats between him and some of his officials and close associates were leaked.

The leaked chats included profanity-laced, misogynistic and homophobic comments, as well as barbed and cynical remarks about a variety of topics, including the deaths following Hurricane Maria in 2017.

Members of the chat group, which used the encrypted messaging app Telegram, made fun of an obese man whom the governor had posed with in a photo, called former New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito a "whore" and made homophobic remarks about the pop star Ricky Martin. (Read more)

10. Venezuelan fighter jet 'aggressively shadowed' Navy aircraft over Caribbean Sea, US military says - Fox News

A U.S. Navy intelligence aircraft was "aggressively shadowed" by a Venezuelan fighter jet over the Caribbean Sea on Friday in a move that U.S. officials are calling "unprofessional" and endangered the safety of those on board.

The U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) said Sunday in a news release that a U.S. Navy EP-3 Aries II aircraft was flying a mission in international airspace when it was approached "in an unprofessional manner" by the Venezuelan SU-30 Flanker fighter plane, a Russian-made jet.

"After reviewing video documentation, we have determined the Russian-made fighter aggressively shadowed the EP-3 at an unsafe distance in international airspace for a prolonged period of time, endangering the safety of the crew and jeopardizing the EP-3 mission," SOUTHCOM said in a statement. (Read more)

- Father, we ask Your protection over our Armed Forces and Aircraft, to preserve them from aggression by any foreign power.

A polite political discussion-really?

A friend of mine who I haven't seen in many years wanted to strike up a conversation about politics. He was very respectful and was dancing around topics very gently; said he was practicing because people needed to discuss issues and participate in the 2020 election. He started out by saying that he wanted to talk to me about politics. I said that I had been out of politics and didn't really want to get into it. He said how proud he was of the 20 Democratic Party candidates during their debate because there was a range of liberals and conservatives talking about issues. He actually thought that the Democrat debate showed a distinction between liberals and conservatives. This was my second red flag.

The first red flag was that he was proud of the candidates for discussing issues. Here ya go. Issues. What are the issues? The Democratic Presidential Debate really didn't discuss issues. They discussed problems. They are very good, in fact excellent, at bringing up problems. There are problems everywhere, especially with people who disagree with them on what the problems are. I told my friend that there can be no "discussion" of issues between him and others or between politicians and anyone else until the labels are dropped and people can talk about issues safely and with respect for one another as adults. He didn't seem to get what I was saying, and acted confused.
So in explanation, I said that so long as someone is labeled a racist, bigot, white supremist, misogynist, Islamophobe, homophobe or whatever other "phobe" or "ism," if they disagree with that person on any particular issue, there can be no respectful dialogue. He was nodding his head, but I got the sense that he believed that conservatives were actually doing that to liberals and, to him, that's why there was a problem-especially because President Trump attacked liberals like that. There was absolutely no recognition that there was anything wrong with the labeling by liberals, their political bigotry or ideological intolerance. There was an assumption that the labeling was coming from conservatives.
Even when someone from the left wants to discuss politics politely, their idea is that the other side is actually representative of one or more of the "phobes" or "isms" they hate so much. They are immediately judging from the content of their own heart-the bias of their tribal brainwashing. When I said there could be no respectful dialogue so long as one side was going to label the other side, the conversation was immediately changed. My friend was somewhat disarmed. Very few times these days will anyone discuss political issues politely. I have to hand it to my friend to try. But the environment is so acerbic, even the best of intentions is emblematic of the worst of these times. Remember Proverbs 15:1, "A soft answer turns away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger." Perhaps, my words at least made him think.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

"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.

NYC mayor calls for investigation after thousands left without power amid sweltering heat wave

Temperatures soared this weekend across a significant portion of the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, leading several places to experience the first official heat wave of the year. The combination of high temperatures, which climbed into the triple digits in some locations, and high humidity led to AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures as high as 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

The extreme heat left vulnerable populations at risk when outdoors for extended period. Five heat-related deaths have been reported throughout the region in recent days, with the fifth fatality reported on Monday by Philadelphia officials. The Philadelphia Department of Health said that the death of a man in his 70s in west Philadelphia on Saturday was attributed to the heat, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

On Friday, about 250 people were evacuated from a northwest Philadelphia retirement community due to a partial power outage during the heat wave. Similarly in New Jersey, more than 100 residents were forced to evacuate a senior center after air conditioning failed.

At the tail-end of the brutal heat wave on Sunday night, areas of the Brooklyn borough of New York City lost power with more than 30,000 Con Edison power customers reportedly in the dark. As crews worked into Monday morning to restore power, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio held a news conference about the situation with the city's electric grid.

De Blasio called for an investigation of the power outages on Sunday, expressing his criticism of the power company after the recent outages. At the time of the press conference on Monday morning, about 19,000 customers remained without power in the city with about 13,000 of them in Brooklyn.

"I am extremely disappointed with Con Ed. They've been giving us consistently inconsistent information over these last days," the mayor said. "This was a situation we all saw coming and I don't have any good answers yet as to why this happened and why it was not prevented." (Accuweather.com) Read more

From 'Born Alive Act' to 'Save Chick-fil-A',
Texas Takes Big Steps to Defend Life and Liberty

America's founding fathers sought to provide a land where "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" would be protected. Well, this week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott publicly signed new laws that defend those first two rights: life and liberty.

Abbott approved a new law calling for life-saving treatment to be given to infants born alive after a failed abortion. The 'Born Alive Act' was signed on July 18, certifying that a baby born after an attempted abortion receives the necessary treatment that any other patient would in order to survive.

A physician who violates the law by failing to provide the appropriate medical treatment to the infant will face fines starting at $100,000.

. . . On the liberty side, Gov. Abbott also held a public signing of the 'Save Chick-fil-a" law on July 18, saying "this is a victory for religious freedom in Texas."

The new law, SB 1978, prohibits the government from taking "adverse action" against an individual or business based on contributions to religious organizations.

"No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners gave to a church, or to the Salvation Army, or to any other religious organization," Abbott said.
