He also does not plan to comply with a subpoena demanding the full, unredacted Mueller report.
Can You Be Both Patriot American and a Christian?
"A wise man will hear and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels."
7-29-19, Bill Wilson -- In 2011 Filmmaker Chris Pinto* appeared on radio and television shows lambasting David Barton of Wallbuilders** for misleading Christian Americans about the foundation of Christ as the cornerstone of this nation. While I am not a historian, it is of interest to me. It is a fact that this United States of America had predominantly Christian roots at its founding and its laws are based on the laws of the Bible.**
- In 1565, the Protestant French Huguenots, who came to what is now Florida to escape persecution, were martyred by Catholic Spanish troops.
- The 1606 Jamestown Charter from King James stated ”...in propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness and miserable Ignorance of the true Knowledge and Worship of God, and may in time bring the Infidels and Savages, living in those Parts, to human Civility, and to a settled and quiet Government...”
- Sixteen years later “The Mayflower Compact”  proclaimed: “Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia...”
“Take heed that no man deceive you.” Matthew 24:4
On January 10, 1963, Florida Congressman A.S. Herlong, Jr. read into the Congressional Record  the 45 stated goals of communism from “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skousen. Numbers 27-30 stated:
“27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch." 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state." 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man".”
Rest assured that God WAS in control of forming this nation for His good purpose. You can be both a patriot and a Christian—the freedom of one confirms the other.

President Trump's Really Good Week, July 22, 2019
7-28-19, Canada Free Press - In his very short political career, President Trump has enjoyed both successes and setbacks; however, the events of this week July 22, 2019, were truly remarkable.
- Good news from the congressional hearings as Robert Mueller fails to make the Dems happy not knowing about Fusion GPS and other less than stellar fake news
- the economic reports
- the Supreme Court approving $2.5 billion for border security wall

'Port of Beirut now Port of Hezbollah,' Israel's Ambasador Danon tells United Nations Security Council [UNSC]
7-23-19, JerPost -- Iran is smuggling arms to Hezbollah in Lebanon through the port of Beirut by exploiting “civilian maritime channels,” On July 23, 2019 Israel’s ambassador to the UN in New York, Danny Danon, warned the Security Council. He said: “Israel found that Iran and the Quds Force have begun to advance the exploitation of the civilian maritime channels, and specifically the Port of Beirut.”
7-26-19, One of the most enduring narratives pushed forth by the Alt-Media Community is that Russia is “allied” with Iran in spite of all the evidence suggesting that it’s actually much more closely aligned with “Israel” in an intimate strategic partnership that can best be described as “Putinyahu’s Rusrael“. Maria Khodynskaya-Golenischeva’s latest article for her country’s top think tank, the Valdai Club vehemently denied that there was ever any intention for Moscow to construct a so-called “Russia-Shia axis” ... her country militarily cooperates with both the Syrian armed opposition and even the Islamic Republic’s hated foes in “Israel” as part of its regional “balancing” act... it comes “primarily from the West”... her comment strongly implies that this interpretation of events is therefore disreputable and might have the ulterior motive of discrediting Russia. In any case, her words are the most authoritative confirmation yet that Russia is not, nor ever was or will be, in an “alliance” with Iran.

The Enemies Destroyed Themselves
2 Chronicles 20:20-22
In the Wilderness of Tekoa as the people of Judah and Jerusalem set out early in the morning, King Jehoshaphat stood up saying:
“Hear me, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Believe in the LORD your God, and you will be upheld; believe in His prophets, and you will succeed.”
Then Jehoshaphat consulted with the people and appointed those who would sing to the LORD and praise the splendor of His holiness. As they went out before the army, they were singing:
“Give thanks to the LORD, for His loving devotion endures forever.”
The moment they began their shouts and praises, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah, and they were defeated.
2 Chronicles 20:15
The giraffe tongue is dark black, blue, or purple in color. Even though a typical giraffe neck can stretch as long as six feet, the giraffe's tongue usually only 18-20 inches long. Giraffes spend up to 12 hours each day eating, the tongue's dark color might protect it from exposure to the Sun's rays, thereby preventing sunburn! Their favorite food is acacia leaves that have high moisture content, up to 75 pounds of leaves in a day provides them with much of the water they need and can go days without drinking if they have plenty of acacia leaves.

PEACE: INNER TRANQUILITY
"I will fear no evil, for You are with me."
6-14-13, * -- When Jodie Foster accepted an award at the 2013 Golden Globes, she confessed: “I want to be seen, to be understood deeply, and to be not so very lonely.” Her words echo Jim Carrey, another successful American actor, who once said, “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of, so they can see that it’s not the answer.”
We are tempted to put our hope in the false gods of money, sex, power and fame to satisfy our longings. As these Hollywood celebrities remind us, counterfeit gods never deliver on their promises. The Lord Jesus promised HIS peace, and it’s a peace that we can count on [John 14:27]. No better Scripture describes this placid state of the soul 'peace' than Psalm 23:1-6.
Inner spiritual peace is derived from being forgiven and knowing we are accepted in God's forever family. Only when we recognize that the Lord Jesus is present with us - in good times and not so good times - can we have an abiding peace that does not depend on our circumstances; wealth or health.
Fear and anxiety are natural responses to worrisome situations; but we can experience peace in the midst of dread by doing what God commands: “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.” (Phil. 4:6–7)

In Only Two Weeks Deadly Brain Infection Killed Eddie Gray
- A four-year-old boy from Louisiana picked up the deadly Naegleria fowleri while playing on a homemade water slide.
- California woman Kelsey McClain, 24, contracted the brain infection and died after entering her nose while she was swimming in the Colorado River in 2016.
- The organism does not cause illness if swallowed, but can be deadly if forced through the nose while swimming.
- There is currently no known cure for the amoeba.
- Since 1962 only 145 cases in the USA.
Colloidal Silver has been known as an effective antibiotic for centuries. In the early 1900s, Alfred Searle, founder of the Searle pharmaceutical company, discovered that it could kill the most deadly pathogens. Searle stated that applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishing results. The main advantage was that it was rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. Recent research has also stated that colloidal silver can destroy antibiotic resistant microbes like MRSA, the bird flu and SARS.
Oil of oregano takes care of pathogenic bacteria without disrupting beneficial bacteria. It is also antiviral and antifungal which makes it a powerful three-in-one combination that rivals pharmaceuticals while not encouraging antibiotic resistance.
Echinacea has been used to treat a wide variety of infections for hundreds of years. Traditionally, it was used to treat open wounds, diphtheria, blood poisoning, and other bacterial related illnesses. Today, this potent herb is used mostly for colds and flu, due to its ability to destroy the most dangerous forms of bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus, which causes deadly MRSA.
Manuka Honey - Applied topically it can kill a wide range of pathogens including MRSA and flesh eating bacteria. Seven Proven Benefits and Uses of Manuka Honey - Healthline - Mar 29, 2018 - Manuka honey is a type of honey native to New Zealand. It's produced by bees who pollinate the flower Leptospermum scoparium, commonly known as the manuka bush. Manuka honey's antibacterial properties are what set it apart from traditional honey.

State of Minnesota Has No Legal Authority to Assist and Encourage 15 Year Old Minor Boy to Sex Change - Anne Marie Calgaro Sues
In Calgaro's initial 2016 court filing, she sued the St. Louis County School District as well as two health care providers. The school principal decided, without Calgaro’s consent and without an official court order, that E.J.K. was emancipated as a minor [he wasn't]. The first filed a lawsuit against public officials claimed they violated the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution by “terminat[ing] her constitutionally protected parental rights without due process.
As a result, Calgaro was barred from accessing her son’s school and health records. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Calgaro in 2017, which is when the Minnesota mother enlisted the help to go to the USA Supreme Court. More here

5-25-19, The Dems are scared as they know they can’t beat Trump in 2020. So they’re desperately trying to find anything they can to try and discredit him or better their chances. A presidential impeachment has little chance of passing as they’ll never get the Senate on board. They really don’t have any reason to go after Trump. Graham is right this is nothing more than political revenge for beating Mrs. Clinton.

- July 9th he returned to work, but could hardly walk at all when he got home.
- July 10th his leg was red and swollen went to the ER; they told us it was cellulitis possibly contracted from our kayaking trip Saturday and treated him with IV antibiotics and sent him home with two more. They told him if there was any change to come back.
- July 11th Ricky running a 105 fever and rushed back to the emergency room when doctors suspected it was flesh-eating bacteria and ran some tests.
- July 12th Ricky went into surgery when doctors cleaned out a 5-by-6-inch chunk of the inner thigh of his leg.
- July 15th cultures confirmed that flesh-eating bacteria — or necrotizing fasciitis had infected Ricky's leg.
Cassey Rutherford said: “The doctors told us didn't have to be cut on body as it could be a microscopic hole that it could come into and still spread like that. ... Do not get in that water! It’s not safe. Don’t jeopardize your family for a day of fun. It’s right here in our backyard.”

Miss World America Strips Conservative Activist Kathy Zhu of Miss Michigan Title Over Her Refusing to Wear Muslim Head Sack "Hijab" ... “being racist, Islamophobic and insensitive”
Zhu responded by saying: “What is ‘insensitive’ is that women in the Middle East are getting STONED TO DEATH for refusing to obey their husband’s orders to wear hijabs. A Muslim woman tried to FORCIBLY put a hijab on my head without my permission. I tweeted about it on my social media, and it got the attention of the media. Almost everyone was supportive of me refusing to be put in that situation.” She asked Dejack: "Are the people in MWA implying that they advocate for the punishment of women who refuse to wear a hijab?”
Following her refusal to wear the hijab, angry Twitter users had attempted to get the Chinese-American student expelled from her university. DeJack also sent Zhu an email demanding that she return her crown and sash, as well as remove any mention of having participated in MWA from all of her social media. More here
Zhu replied: “Statistics and facts are not always pleasant. It’s disgusting how you would rather lie to the public’s face than be supportive of someone that is trying to make a difference by talking about subjects that no one dares to say.” More here
Finding Truth in Fake News
Who is Muslim Democrat from Minnesota Ilhan Omar?
- Ms Omar first married Hirsi in an Islamic ceremony in 2002 when she was 19, but six years later they divorced
- In 2009, Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen, who has been identified as her brother - but this has not been proven
- Omar had a third child with Hirsi in 2012, even though she was still legally married to Elmi - who she divorced in 2017 and married Hirsi in 2018
- 7-25-19 it has been revealed that Ms Omar and her husband Ahmed Hirsi – the father of her three children – have split again
- Omar left her husband and has moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis's trendiest neighborhoods
- Mr Hirsi said to media: 'Wow, I can't comment on that. I'm sorry, I just can't say anything.' More here from DailyMail
7-23-19, * -- There's a 1989 CSPAN video circulating the internet allegedly of Congresswoman Rashida Talib (D-MI) discussing the Islamic plan to make America Islam and replace US laws with Sharia law. I found that the video was attributed to Sharifa Alkhateeb, a female Muslim educator sharing her ultimate goal of Muslim education in America. Alkhateeb and Tlaib look alike, but Tlaib would have been only 10 years old when the speech was videotaped. Plus, if this had been Tlaib, this info likely would have surfaced during her Michigan campaign for Congress.
Notwithstanding, there is much more disturbing info circulating about the other Muslim Democrat congresswoman from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar. Investigative reporter and former editor at PJ Media, David Steinberg, has investigated Omar's background and found evidence of criminal activity. He's written five in-depth stories about Omar and her deceptive, if not illegal, activities since coming to the United States in 1992 [when she was 10 yrs old].
Wikipedia reports: Ilhan Omar is a Muslim born in Somalia who spent much of her childhood in Kenya and immigrated to the United States when she was 12 [or 10] years old. In 2002 she became engaged to Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi. The couple applied for a marriage license, but the application was not finalized. They had a faith-based marriage and had two children before separating in 2008. In 2009 she married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen. In 2011 she and Elmi had a faith-based divorce, and that year  she reconciled with Hirsi, with whom she had a third child in 2012. In 2017 Elmi and Omar were legally divorced and in 2018 Omar and Hirsi were legally married. More here
Steinberg reports that Omar did not flee war-torn Somalia, but rather was part of a family that already had been granted asylum in Great Britain. In 1992 [or '95], Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the "Omar" family. That's not her family; they are a second, unrelated family who was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan's genetic family to falsely use their name to apply for asylum as members of their family:
- Ilhan Abdullahi Omar's name, before applying for asylum was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi
- her genetic sister Sahra Noor's name before applying for asylum was Sahra Nur Said Elmi
- her genetic father's name before applying for asylum was Nur Said Elmi Mohamed
- [and the brother/husband #2 Ahmed Nur Said Elmi?? -- Ed.]
Oh, how the truth is perverted.
Think about this: Christ said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me" and in John 8:32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
No Christ, no truth. Know Christ, know truth. Seek truth.
5-3-18, Henry Morris, PhD -- The concept of “fiat creation” is opposed by evolutionists and all who believe in the so-called geologic ages. Nevertheless, this is clearly the teaching of the Word of God, and God was there! Psalm 148:1-5 exhorts all the stars to praise the Lord, and then notes that, as soon as God spoke, they “were created.” Similarly, “by the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. . . . For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.” (Psalm 33:6, 9)
It is worth noting that whenever the verbs “create” and “make” are used in reference to God’s work of creation, they are never in the present tense. God is not now creating or making stars or animals or people as theistic evolution requires; at the end of the six-day creation period, in fact, God “rested from all his work which God created and made.” (Genesis 2:3)
This is the teaching of the New Testament also. “The worlds [that is, the space/time cosmos, the ‘aeons’] were framed [not ‘are being framed’] by the word of God [not ‘by processes of stellar evolution’], so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear [not ‘out of pre-existing materials,’ as required by theories of chemical and cosmic evolution].” (Hebrews 11:3)
The Lord Jesus Christ Himself confirmed the doctrine of recent creation. “From the beginning of the creation [not, that is, four billion years after the solar system evolved] God made them [Adam and Eve] male and female.” (Mark 10:6; John 1:3)
Thus, those who believe in the geologic ages are rejecting both the biblical record and the authority of Jesus Christ in order to attain ephemeral acceptance by the ungodly. This is a poor exchange! Source
Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) might be pleasing to the eyes with its small, white umbrella-like flowers. However, it’s far from pleasing to the body, as contact with its sap makes skin sensitive to sunlight and brings about bright red burns and exaggerated blisters everywhere it touches. Scarring from the blisters can last for as long as six years.
If the sap gets in your eyes, the situation is even worse: it can cause long-term sunlight sensitivity and blindness. A toxic reaction to the plant can occur within just 15 minutes of contact. More here

California Homeless Population; Poorly Maintained Streets

"How Many Must Die Before Officials Address California's Diseases?" - - Dr. Drew
7-17-19, Dr. Drew Pinsky slammed the city of Los Angeles California for its inadequate response to the growing homeless crisis. As the threat of a plague [bubonic] looms over California’s summer. An epidemic that gets closer every day that the rat problem is not solved. He said, “We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, [and] rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program and sanitation has broken down. We had a typhus outbreak last summer , even the police have been infected. Bubonic plague will get onto the rat fleas; and we have this oral-fecal route contamination, which is typhoid fever.”
2-28-18, WebMd.com -- You may think that the plague, once called the Black Death, must be extinct, disappearing with knights in armor and village blacksmiths but it is here in the USA. The plague is caused by bacteria called Yersinia pestis dwelling in rats fleas; the bugs pick up the germs when they bite infected animals like rats, mice, or people.
Paul Gaylord contracted bubonic plague from cat bite: 'My recovery ...
2-3-14, An Oregon man who escaped death after contracting the bubonic plague from his cat tells of the terrifying experience. In 2012 sixty-one yr old Paul Gaylord was in a coma for 27 days on life support as his internal organs began to fail, his extremities rotting. The retired welder lost all of his fingers except for parts of both thumbs, all of his toes and a part of his right foot. He recalled that his cat Charlie showed up on the porch, swollen and choking on a mouse. He tried to pull it out, but the cat bit his finger ... Paul's symptoms kicked in at work the next day; fever, felt sick, skin turned grey he was rushed to the hospital. His under arm glands were the size of lemons; that's one of the symptoms of Bubonic Plague. Paul's condition was so bad that the day before he woke up, doctors considered pulling the plug. Paul said, "My recovery shocked everybody. I'd been told I'd be on dialysis for the rest of my life, but I had one treatment and I recovered. Everything in my body did, except my hands and feet."
Mueller Testimony: No Pity For His Pathetic Display
7-24-19, Rush Limbaugh - No matter how pathetic or feeble Robert Mueller appeared, no one should feel sorry for him. While he led the witch hunt, many American lives were damaged or ruined like Lt General Michael Flynn! No pity for Mr Mueller. The Democrat Party -- led by Jerry Nadler & committee -- have been attempting to maneuver Mueller into saying, essentially, "I was hamstrung by Department of Justice guidelines. I couldn't get the guy. You have to do it." That's what they wanted him to say. He wouldn't do it. His name is on the letterhead, the rainmaker, the guy that gives it all of this honor and integrity. Meanwhile, his 15 Hillary Clinton-donor investigators did the work. He doesn't know what's in his report. It's obvious Mueller has not been part of this at all. This investigation was run by staff; all of it run by Andrew Weissmann and 14 other Hillary Clinton donors. Participating in this staff were Strzok, Smirk and Lisa Page, the text lovers openly admitting their hatred for Trump and their desire to sabotage the election so that he didn't win. He may have only been a 'figurehead' but a willing conspirator. More here
WHEN STRONG WINDS BLOW
"When Peter [stepped into water] saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, "Lord, save me." And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him saying, "O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?"
12-14-18, * -- In one of the most frequently repeated scenes in Looney Tunes, a character, Wile E. Coyote, often runs headlong off a cliff and continues running through thin air—until he looks down. Once he realizes the potential danger, he falls with a stupendous crash.
For Looney Tunes watchers, the Apostle Peter’s experience of walking on water may seem faintly familiar. As the disciples were on a boat in the Sea of Galilee, they saw a figure walking near them. Although they suspected it was a ghost, Jesus assured them it was in fact Him (Matthew 14:26–27). Peter then appeared to have sought proof, saying to Jesus, “Tell me to come to you on the water” (Matthew 14:28). When Jesus did, Peter began to boldly walk toward Him.
Unlike Wile E. Coyote, Peter’s defiance of physics began not by accident, but with an expression of faith in the Lord Jesus; believing in His power. Peter saw Him heal people and raise Lazarus from the dead (John 11:43) so of course he believed Jesus wouldn't let him sink.
Yet the Peter, like Wile E. Coyote, soon realized the potential danger and began to plummet. When a strong wind blew, Peter went from faith to fear. Still, his faith did not entirely disappear; for he had enough to cry out to Jesus for help: “Lord, save me!” (Matt 14:30). Jesus did not hesitate to save He reached out “immediately” (Matt 14:31).
Those who follow Christ may find themselves in situations of danger or distress. However, we know we can enter into them with the faith that enables us to walk through the seemingly impossible and Jesus gives us strength and peace to plunge ahead. [1 Timothy 1:17]

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word
What more can He say than to you He hath said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled
Fear not, I am with thee; oh be not dismayed
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand
When through the deep waters I call thee to go
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress
When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie
My grace all sufficient shall be thy supply
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine
The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose
I will not, I will not desert to its foes
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.
Pray for the faith that all distresses will serve God’s purposes, and trust in His power to sustain you.
