Russia Says it's true - Washington doubts it ...
10-17-18, Russia's TASS news agency reported that the Islamic terror group in Syria, ISIS militants has taken appx 700 hostages in the Deir al-Zor province after attacking a refugee camp in an area controlled by US forces and US backed troops.
Russia's Pres Putin said, “Islamic State terrorists have delivered ultimatums and made certain demands, threatening to shoot ten people every day. This is just horrible, it is a catastrophe. Some US and European citizens are among the hostages.”He did not specify what the terrorists’ demands were.

Russian news agency TASS said: “Militants demand that Syrian Democratic Forces, fighting on the side of the US-led coalition, release captured ISIS terrorists and concede several territories on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River."
In Washington DC a Pentagon spokesman, Commander Sean Robertson said in a statement: "While we have confirmed that there was an attack on an internally displaced persons [IDP] camp near Deir-al Zor, Syria last week, we have no information supporting the large number of hostages alleged by President Putin and we are skeptical of its accuracy. We are also unaware of any US nationals located in that camp." More here: https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1033295/isis-news-putin-news-russia-war-Syria

Social Security [SSA] Benefits to Increase 2.8% in 2019

- Next year, in January 2019, the increase will be 2.8%. [The average monthly increase appx $39.00] More here and here
June 2009, Democrat President Obama was president when a federal judge sentenced Bernard L. Madoff to 150 years in prison for running a huge Ponzi scheme that devastated thousands of investors, calling his crimes "extraordinarily evil." [Oh? you mean just like Social Security?]
Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme
It should come as no surprise to those who monitor the government and its deceptive ways that when, in 1935. Democrat Pres Franklin Roosevelt introduced Social Security, he deceptively fostered the idea that Social Security would be a savings account, where employees & employers would make contributions and the guaranteed monies would be paid back to them with interest when they reached age of 65. The Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of it; however recognizing that there would be no trust fund in the traditional sense; it found that the tax dollars collected and supposedly designated for Social Security were "not earmarked in any way." The same federal government that prosecutes people like Bernie Madoff for paying out more than they collect does the very same thing under the color of law. It's basically a 'ponzi scheme' theft by deception — lawful just because the government runs it? The Supreme Court has said "yes." More here
God's Final Word
“The Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD and His name one.”
10-18-18, Henry Morris, PhD -- God cannot be defeated in His creative purpose for this earth and its people. In the beginning, there was only God. In the ending, there will be one Lord and His name one.
In the meantime, He is working out His great plan of reconciliation, as revealed in His Word. In the magnificent book of Revelation, especially the last two chapters, we are carried forward in the Spirit into the never-ending glories of the renewed earth, with the great Creator and Redeemer dwelling there with His people eternally.
However, in that final chapter, there are some final words from the Lord to guide and warn us until He returns, for example:
- “And let him that is athirst come” (Revelation 22:17).
- The final warning: let no man “add unto these things,” or “take away from the words of the book of this prophecy” (Revelation 22:18-19).
- There's a final promise. “He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly” (Rev 22:20). Of all the promises of God, there is none more “exceeding great and precious” than this. (2 Peter 1:4) In response, there is a final prayer, teaching us that this should be the climax of every believing prayer: “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20)
- There's a final benediction, the same as the close of each of Paul’s epistles, and the most wonderful of all the words of a holy, yet loving, Creator, “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." (Rev 22:21)
Three Year Court Battle in Atlanta GA USA
Ex Fire Chief, Kevin Cochran Fired for church's book; topic sex - city found it 'insensitive' ... Court finds otherwise and awards $1.2 million in damages
10-16-18, The city of Atlanta GA USA did not approve of Chief Kevin Cochran's book. After a 30-day suspension without pay, in order to complete "sensitivity training," and an investigation into his conduct (which showed he had never discriminated against anyone in the fire department), his career came to an end in Atlanta. This led Cochran to embark on a three-year legal battle that he says was never just about him. Court ruled Atlanta will pay Chief Cochran, $1.2 million after a Federal District Court ruled in December 2017 that the city's policies which led to Cochran's termination were unconstitutional. The book was for members of his church expressing biblical views on sexuality, adultery and homosexuality.

FRANCE LEADER INTERNATIONAL EMBARRASSMENT!
10-16-18, Italy's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini said he questioned whether international organizations such as the United Nations and Europe Union “don’t find it ‘sickening’ to leave people in an isolated area with no assistance. We are faced with an international shame and Macron cannot pretend nothing has happened. We don't accept the apology.”
France deliberately dropped off illegal migrants in Italy's woods ..
10-16-18, Italian anti-immigration leader, Deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini has labeled French President Emmanuel Macron an "international embarrassment" after policemen were spotted dropping off illegal migrants in an Italy's forest on the two nation's shared border. Salvini said that Macron doesn’t want the migrant inundation, either, but that doesn’t stop him from endlessly virtue-signaling as he drives France over the cliff.
10-18-18, Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC said they've been investigating at least 386 possible cases of acute flaccid myelitis [AFM] dating back to 2014 confirming 62 cases in 22 states so far in 2018.
The cause of most AFM cases is unknown. There's no specific treatment and longterm implications are unknown. Symptoms include drooping face and eyelids, difficulty with eye movement, swallowing and slurred speech. In severe cases, children might have trouble breathing and need a ventilator because of muscle weakness.
"To prevent infections in general, persons should stay home if they are ill, wash their hands often with soap and water, avoid close contact (such as touching and shaking hands) with those who are ill, and clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces." Unlike polio AFM cannot currently be prevented with a vaccine.

Polio was eradicated in the USA in 1979 [here] - could the weak immigration screening laws [or lack of implementation] of migrants be the cause? Oh and of course, the illegal migrants flooding our shores.

What's the Big Deal About Israel?
God said, "I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves"
10-15-18, * -- Why is Jerusalem such a big deal in world news? Why aren't we talking about Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, or some other major capital in another part of the world? Why this little city? [Jerusalem, Capitol of Israel, Area: 48.3 mi, Population: 857,752]
I will tell you why. Because God said that in the last days, Jerusalem would play a key role: "I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves" (Zechariah 12:2–3 NLT).
Scripture also foretold in Ezekiel 37 that the Jews would be regathered in their land, and this prophecy was fulfilled when Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948. After Ezekiel 37 comes Ezekiel 38, which speaks of an attack against Israel by a large nation to the north of the Jewish homeland, accompanied by a number of allies invading Israel from every direction. Scripture emphasizes multiple times that this will happen in the last days. This is still in the future.
"A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be enjoying peace after recovering from war and after its people have returned from many lands to the mountains of Israel.
"You and all your allies—a vast and awesome army—will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud.
"This is what the Sovereign Lord says: 'At that time evil thoughts will come to your mind, and you will devise a wicked scheme. You will say, "Israel is an unprotected land filled with unwalled villages! I will march against her and destroy these people who live in such confidence!"'" (NLT).
The Bible predicts that a national revival will come to Israel, when God will once again pour out his Spirit upon the nation. But this will happen after the rapture of the church. Romans 11:25 predicts, "Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ."
If knowing what the Bible predicts about the last days doesn't impact us in the way that we live, then we have missed what God is trying to say. Jesus didn't say, "When these things begin to happen, argue about it." Rather...
Jesus said: "When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." (Luke 21:28 NKJV).

It's Time to End Women's Sports
Transgendered Men Will Always Win!
McKinnon isn’t alone, as many men masquerading as a woman (MMW) have won women’s sporting events during the last decade. To name just a few, a 55-year-old MMW won a women’s long-drive competition (golf) in 2008. Last year, a 39-year-old MMW won a women’s weightlifting event. Then there were the Connecticut’s State Open track and field championships in June; the top two finishers in the 100-meter dash were both MMW (okay, being boys, they were BMG), with one of them setting the girls’ state record in both the 100 and 200-meter runs. Hey, you go…uh…girl. [..snip]
There are those who hear a McKinnon story and, being good pander-bears, suggest we establish a “transgender” athletic category to end the controversy. Why create more division when we can have less? So let’s just end women’s sports. More here and here
Russia's President Vladimir Putin 'Soft Spot for Israel'
Since the downing of the Russian plane Il-20 in September 2018, there has been a contradiction between President Putin “absolving” Israel of responsibility for the downing while Def Maj-General Igor Konashenkov charged Israel as “solely to blame.” Apparently, Pres Putin has a soft spot for Israel on sentimental grounds. On February 7, 2018 he inherited the Tel Aviv apartment he bought in 2005 for his beloved high school German teacher, Yuditskaya Berliner, who at age 96 died in December, 2017.
From a military and strategic vantage point, Iran and Syria are valuable Russian allies in countering the U.S. influence in the region. Syria offers Russia bases on the Mediterranean Sea and an important port at Tartus that is the Russian Navy's only overseas port. Iran’s anti-American stance and its attempts at subversion of Arab pro-American regimes, is part of the chess game that scores points for Russia, albeit, Russia is not interested in a military confrontation with the U.S. or Israel.
Iran & Syria’s trade with Russia are insignificant
Trade with Iran comprised only 1% of Russia’s foreign trade. Iran imported from Russia in 2016 $1,881,772,374 and exported to Russia $302,550,106 in goods. Most of its exported goods included military hardware, including the S-300 air-defense system at a cost of $900 million. Russia’s trade with Syria amounted to only 0.00605% of its foreign trade. Syria imported from Russia $182,254,336 and exported to Russia $11,020,676. Military hardware constitutes a large part of the Russian exports to Syria. Russia exports to Israel $1,469,348,877 worth of goods, or .515% of Russia’s foreign trade. Syria is not a very good paying customer, and much of the Russian hardware has been given to Assad at reduced rates or gratis [no cost].
Israel's Russian Culture
For Putin’s Russia, Israel is a bastion of Russian culture. With over a million former Russian citizens in Israel, imbued with Russian culture and impacted by its education, Israel is one of a few such countries in the world, and certainly, the only one in the Middle East. This kind of Russian cultural influence plays a positive role in Putin’s mind. Moreover, Israel, and Netanyahu in particular, are seen as a bridge between the Trump administration and the Putin government.
Islamic Terror Problem for Russia
Moscow is also considering the threat Islamism poses to Russia’s security in the North Caucuses and beyond. The Chechen Muslims (having had two relatively recent wars with Russia) have established links with global Islamic terrorist groups, operating within and outside of the Russian Federation. Iran and Turkey’s Islamic empires were historic enemies of the Russian empire. Israel shares intelligence with Russia on Islamic terrorist activities.
Israel Seeks Strong Friendly Relationship
Jerusalem seeks to restore its understanding with Moscow maintaining a strong and friendly relationship with the Kremlin. Unlike the U.S., where the legislative and executive branches of government by-and-large support the Jewish state as well as the majority of Americans, Israel's relations with Russia hinges on who sits in the Kremlin; currently both parties are interested in maintaining cooperation. Netanyahu is likely to prevail upon Putin to allow Israel to continue its operations against Iranian entrenchment in Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon because both deliver lethal arms to the region threatening the Jewish state.
Problems between Israel and Russia might arise however, when Israeli stealth fighters inadvertently destroy the Russian installed S-300 air-defense missiles.

Pastors, Politics & Christians
"Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king."
- Matthew 22:21 Jesus says, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.” Some pastors use this verse to teach their flocks that Christians have no place in the affairs of their nations
- Some may preach Romans 13:1 about submitting to the ruling authorities
- The apostle Peter said in Acts 5:29 “We ought to follow God rather than men” when he was facing persecution and unjust demands from the ruling authorities.
Many will say that Christians should not concern themselves with earthly kingdoms, but only be concerned about the kingdom of God. I don’t view it as “either/or,” but rather “both/and.”
In Romans 12:21 we are charged: "be not overcome of evil, but to overcome evil with good." Perhaps the best way to begin overcoming evil in high places is by cleansing our church pulpits of those who condone it. In 1 Peter 2:13-17 it says to 'submit to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake..." - voting is an ordinance of man. We should be informed and vote.
