President Trump's First Address to Congress - Transcript
2-28-17, President Donald J. Trump's speech, which is not technically considered a State of the Union but functions similarly to one.
February 28, 2017, President Speech to Congress
Transcript of the remarks as prepared for delivery:
Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States, and Citizens of America:
Tonight, as we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our Nation's path toward civil rights and the work that still remains. Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week's shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a Nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.
Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice –- in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present.
That torch is now in our hands. And we will use it to light up the world. I am here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength, and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart.
A new chapter of American Greatness is now beginning.

Series: History of the Holy Bible in English, Installment #8: Miles Coverdale, 1569 AD
Miles Cloverdale was born in 1488 in Richmondshire, England and he printed the first complete Bible in the English language on October 4, 1535. He made use of Luther's German text and the Latin as additional sources. He was quoted as saying:
"It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is spoken or written, but of whom and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after."
During his long life, he experienced eight decades of crucial importance in religious history. His theological development is a paradigm of the progress of the English Reformation from 1530 to 1552. In 1528, he had left the Augustinians and, wearing simple garments preached in Essex against transubstantiation [literally the communion bread being the body and blood of the Lord Jesus], the worship of images and the traditional form of confession. Such views were very dangerous in 1528, for the future course of the religious revolution. Reforms proposed by the Lollards and those preached by Luther were being pursued by a vigorous campaign against what the Roman Catholic leadership referred to as 'heresy.'
Towards the end of 1528, Coverdale fled England to the Continent of Europe.
By the time of his death, he had transitioned into an early Puritan, affiliated to Calvin. Apparently he died of natural causes although he was exiled from London three times and was buried in St. Bartholomew's Church in January of 1569. More here
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:"

Mardi Gras Originally is a Christian Celebration of the Coming of Resurrection Sunday [aka Easter]
2-28-17, Two awful events ... so far I can't get to the bottom of it - I am so suspicious that the truth is being withheld.
(Psalm 16:1-11; Psalm 49:1-20; Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; John 20:1-9)
2017 "Lent" begins March 1st | What is Lent?
Catholics and many Protestant Christians Celebrate what's called 'Lent' the beginning of the annual Easter Season: Lent begins on what's called "Ash Wednesday" the Christian religious celebration of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ on what's called "Easter." It's a 40-day fast, so will run up until the Thursday before Easter Sunday, this year April 16, 2017.
I'm not saying it's Islamic terror; I'm just suspicious because of the way the reports are being handled and the facts of events as we know them. -- Annette
Pesticides Killing of Life Giving Honey Bees
Death and Extinction of Honey Bees
Famine: "A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley
for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:6)
1-4-17, Global Research  -- Scientists have reported that mass extinctions of marine animals may soon be occurring at alarmingly rapid rates. But perhaps the biggest foreboding danger of all facing humans is the loss of the global honeybee population.
The consequence of a dying bee population impacts man at the highest levels on our food chain, posing an enormously grave threat to human survival - without them we will have famine. No other single animal species plays a more significant role in producing fruits and vegetables than the honey bee. Albert Einstein once prophetically remarked,
“Mankind will not survive the honeybees’
disappearance for more than five years.”
Since 2006 beekeepers have reported that their honeybee populations have been dying off at increasingly rapid rates. According to the latest statistics compiled by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the state produces almost half of all the fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the country, as well as a whopping share of the livestock and dairy. California’s honey production fell by nearly half in just six years.
US GOVT EPA Finally Admits What Has Been Killing Bees For Decades
Jan 10, 2016 - “GMO Free Zones” Popping Up Across the Country U.S. Govt & EPA Finally Admits What Has Been Killing Bees ... Corn and citrus crops are most likely to expose honeybees to detrimental levels chemicals insecticides ... more here
In February 2014, Newsweek reported that each year because bee populations in the USA are struggling, honeybees are moved around the country in trucks to various areas of the nation to pollinate an estimated $40 billion worth of agricultural produce. These bees along with wild bees are responsible for pollination of appx 80% of all food crops in the USA.
Since 1987 when the Varroa mite was first discovered in the US, a failed effort by insecticide corps of Monsanto, Dow, Bayer and others aggressively glommed onto the bee industry selling genetically modified insecticides  and herbicides as the quick and easy fix to remedy the parasitic invasion, only to weaken the bees’ natural genetic defenses to fight off the parasite.
A study found 35 pesticides and fungicides, some at lethal doses, in the pollen collected from bees that were used to pollinate food crops in five U.S. states. Therefore, the bees that contacted pollen contaminated with fungicides ended up three times more likely to get infected by a parasite closely associated with Colony Collapse Disorder.
Bible Prophecy? Deaths? Famine?
In the end times, famine is one of the methods used for wicked mankind's final punishment as the Lord prepares for His return to earth. Apparently the foolishness of man destroying his own food by destroying the honey bee is another puzzle piece in the further fulfillment of almighty God's Bible prophecy. [Revelation 6:6]

Series: History of the Holy Bible in English, Installment #7: William Tyndale 1536 AD
After only five years as priest in the Roman Catholic Church, in 1526 William Tyndale was first to bring holy scriptures to the common man all in English. He was quoted as saying:
"I defy the Pope and all his laws. If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy who drives the plow to know more of the scriptures than you do!"
While William was held for eighteen months in the castle dungeon before his trial for heresy for printing the Latin Bible to English; he wrote a letter stating the following:
In August 1536 AD William was convicted as being a heretic at the pageant of casting him out of the Church. In the town square a crowd gathered. The great doctors and dignitaries assembled in due pomp and array taking their seats on the high platform. Tyndale was led out, wearing his priest's robes. He was made to kneel and his hands were scraped with a knife or a piece of glass as a symbol of having lost the benefits of the anointing oil with which he was consecrated to the priesthood... he was summarily tied to the stake and burned.
The Lord Jesus said:
"You will be hated by everyone on account of My name, but the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. v9 they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
Matthew 10:22; 24:9
"When they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost."
"They shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake."

Arrogant and Unimportant "Monkeys" of Tinsel Town Only Increased Trump's Support with their Ten Plus Shots at Him
2-27-17, Last night Hollywood elites and celebrities met in California for the annual awards show 'The Oscars.' Several of the insipid and out of touch recipients of the valued trophy took outrageous shots at President Trump. Including the Master of Ceremonies, Jimmie Kimmel. 
However, we read in the last paragraph of the Boston Herald's report:
Andrew Hemingway, co-chair of Trump’s New Hampshire campaign, agreed that stars outwardly opposing Trump “only helps him” he continued: "Though the shots at President Trump appeared to be well-received [by their peers], I think for a long time, the media and the elites, Hollywood, have been the perpetrators of a system that has put America in the position that it’s in today. The average person in America recognizes that the elite are out of touch — they don’t have a clue.”
TV Ratings Oscars decline to smallest audience in NINE years
2-27-17, The TV ratings for viewership for "the Oscars" have reduced to the lowest since 2008 ... just before Obama was elected - Imagine that!
The Anti-Trump crowd [Obama & Hillary lovin' Hollywood] called candidate Trump's supporters irredeemable and deplorable - we voted for a businessman who has sense and can right the deplorable state of the nation. So by these arrogant elites criticizing our President Trump - does that make them more likely to receive our dollars to go view their wares? They are - after all - nothing but entertainers - like a monkeys in the zoo.
Wall Street Journal: Russia Sends Aid Convoy to Eastern Ukraine
Aug 12, 2014 - Ukrainian and Western leaders [NATO] have expressed concerns that Russia could use an aid mission as cover ...
Russia Protects Middle East Christians!
2-25-17, WND.com -- A 76-year old Flemish priest from the sixth-century Mar Yakub monastery in the Syrian city of Qara said:
“It is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to the army of Syrian President Assad and to Vladimir Putin, because he decided to intervene when the rebels threatened to take power… Between ordinary Muslims and Christians, there is no problem. It is those radical Islamic, Western-backed rebels who want to massacre us. … Trump understands that radical Islam is a bigger threat than Russia.”
Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea have collaborated to create “Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians,” which confirms that groups like Pew Research, Newsweek and The Economist also identify Christians “the world’s most widely persecuted religious group.”
2-26-17, The insane hysteria over Russia needs to stop. The American public is again being manipulated into a war frenzy by Washington and New York [and NATO]. It is stupid, without justification and dangerous. The whole business is manufactured.
This is all orchestrated as is the constant Vladimir Putin bashing who's sin is that he doesn’t knuckle under to Washington. Also the sin of Iran, China, Cuba and North Korea.
The con is silly. From time to time we see screaming headlines, "RUSSIAN BOMBER FLIES OFF AMERICAN COAST!" Or somebody’s coast. Recently it was "A SPY SHIP!" The idea that Moscow would send one lumbering plane to bomb America is ridiculous. An ancient Tu-95 first flew in 1952. Yes, it can carry nuclear weapons; but a Volkswagen Jetta is also capable.
The outrageous mantra and drum beat about Russia is, obviously, part of the Establishment’s drive to get rid of President Trump. Why? It is about money and power, as is everything in the USA. Wall Street, the Pentagon, the Neocons and the Empire run America. Trump has threatened their bottom line.
Thirty-six days in office the President's deeds so far:
- The F-35 fighter jet contract renegotiated saving taxpayers $738 million
- wants to start a trade war with China with a forty-five percent tariff of Chinese goods
- chasing out illegal immigrant criminals
- He's called NATO “obsolete,” but without it who suffers?
- working on establishing a good relations with Russia, when the lack of the Russia enemy of Europe would leave NATO even more unnecessary
Declaring Russia a current threat makes no sense as:
- She is an economically challenged nation
- Population of 145 million is less than half of USA's & Europe’s
- Not on a war footing - not moving forces into position for an invasion; not mobilizing [easily observable by NSA satellites]
Under Obama [last one Jan 9, 2017 just before Trump took office on Jan 20], almost daily we read, 'Washington is sending troops to Poland, Bulgaria, Norway to confront & deter the Russians,' Confront and deter it from what?
Currently we hear how Russia was involved with the successful presidential win of Donald John Trump . Really? If Russia had that power - do you think Obama would have prevailed TWICE?!

Franklin Graham: "Pray Now for Christians Being Slaughtered by ISIS" ...
2-26-17, Evangelist Franklin Graham is calling Christians to pray for believers who have fled Egypt's North Sinai province after the Islamic State has targeted the group and killed at least seven people in recent weeks.
Muslim militants proclaim, "IF YOU LOVE JESUS, THEN DIE LIKE JESUS!"
2-5-17, Gatestone, Raymond Ibrahim -- Reports of Christian life under the Islamic State (ISIS) continued throughout November 2016. Many came from the ancient Christian towns surrounding Mosul, Iraq conquered by ISIS in August, 2014. One Christian man related what ISIS did after his sister's husband refused to convert to Islam: "He was crucified and tortured in front of his wife and children, who were forced to watch. They [ISIS] told him that if he loved Jesus that much, he would die like Jesus."
The Islamic militants tortured his brother-in-law for five hours: "[T]hey cut his stomach open and shot him before leaving him hanging, crucified."
Those who survived ISIS, accused Obama of doing nothing when Iraq's largest Christian city, Qaraqosh, fell to ISIS in 2014. Then, its Christian population was over 50,000. One man said, "Obama has never helped the Christians. In fact, he despises them. In the last 26 months, he has shown he despises all of them. But we have hope in the new president, Trump."
November's worldwide Muslim persecution of Christians includes, but is not limited to, the following: [nations listed] More
