8-21-18, Cohen pleads guilty and said Trump knew ... paid off woman ...
Jury found Paul Manafort guilty on eight criminal charges [nothing to do with Trump, the campaign or Russia].
In 2013 Obama was charged $375,000 for campaign violations but not charged or jailed. The major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling more than $1.8 million — an issue that lawyers familiar with the commission’s work say the FEC takes seriously. The notices must be filed on contributions of $1,000 or more that are received within the 20-day window of Election Day. [Much worse than what Cohen is charged with.]
March 2010, nothing exemplifies government overreach and
arrogance more than those Nancy Pelosi's 16 words at the Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties in March 2010.
June, 2012 -- To validate ObamaCare, the majority first had to uphold the constitutionality of the individual mandate [in Jan 2018 has been repealed by Trump Admin]. The individual mandate required virtually all Americans to purchase health insurance or pay annual penalties. The majority upheld the individual mandate by deciding it was a tax, not a regulatory penalty.
President Trump’s New Iran and Turkey Policy is Working
Ram and Goat in Trouble!
"Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches"
8-21-18, God warns us not to trust in worldly riches ... watching the nations we can clearly see parallels and fulfillments of His prophecies. Especially with current events; next month is the Russia, Iran & Turkey Summit in Iran. [See Genesis 10:1-2, Ezekiel 38:5-6; Daniel 8:19-21; Daniel 11:40]

5-21-18, The US Sec of State Mike Pompeo outlined the Trump administration’s new policy toward Iran expressing support for the Iranian people and commended them for rising up against the totalitarian regime. The reality was that the regime poured much of its new-found money into its terrorist enterprises abroad – in Syria, Iraq and Yemen and in support of Islamic terror groups such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza Israel – while the people continued to suffer under increasingly-harsh economic conditions. Stores in the large bazaars and markets in Tehran closed in protest against the government, citing the reason for the protest as economic stagnation.
US Sanctions – Iran’s Economy in Free Fall
7/31/18, Iran is on its way to hyper inflation with its currency, the rial, worth next to nothing. The collapse comes as Washington considers a new round of sanctions. While DC is not officially talking regime change in Tehran, it certainly is in the backs of minds on the Hill.
7-30-18, The Iranian rial plunged to 112,000 for each US dollar Sunday on unofficial markets, a further decline from 97,500 rials.
8-14-18, Although the writing was on the wall for months, the Turkish economy hit the rocks last week. Plagued by a chronic current account deficits. Fears over Turkey’s financial position sent its currency spiraling to a fresh record low, hitting 7.2 lira to the US dollar. The lira has now lost a third of its value, as the crisis has escalated alarmingly. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan asked citizens to convert their dollars and other foreign currencies as well as gold holdings to lira.
The ruble, Russia's national currency, is tumbling, to lows that may impact Russia hard for the foreseeable future.
Trump administration imposes more sanctions on Russia
The Trump administration under a chemical and biological warfare law following the poisoning of a former Russian agent and his daughter in the UK earlier this year, the State Dept announced more sanctions on Russia. Ban on licenses to export sensitive national security goods to Russia: electronic devices and components, along with test and calibration equipment for avionics. Possible suspension of the state airline Aeroflot's ability to fly to the United States and cutting off nearly all exports and imports.
Russian Ruble Drops in Value vs USD: Cause Sanctions

From its low on February 16, 2018 the dollar has now risen 9.3% to the highest level since May 10, 2017.
Is "The Truth" the Truth
When It Comes to Prosecutors?
- President Trump has stated publicly that he was not aware of the Trump Tower meeting between a Russian woman and his son until after it took place.
- However, one of Trump's attorneys at the time, Michael Cohen said that Trump was aware of the meeting.
- President Trump has also stated that he did not ask former F.B.I. Director James Comey to go easy on Michael Flynn; but Comey said he did.
All the Special Counsel needs, in order to charge a subject of an investigation with lying to a prosecutor, is a single witness willing to contradict the subject. The witness may himself be a criminal who has been squeezed into "singing" in order to save his own skin. The witness may not only be "singing," he may also be "composing" -- that is, the witness may be making up or embellishing a story because he knows that the better his story, the better deal he’ll get.
Under federal law, the testimony of such a "flipped witness" need not be corroborated  in order to secure a conviction.
Because of these realities, most experienced defense attorneys would never allow their clients to get into a swearing contest with a flipped witness, even if the client [defendant] were telling the absolute truth. President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who himself was a tough prosecutor, now understands how this tactic can be used to trap innocent people.
 Definition of "corroborate:" v. To strengthen or support with evidence; make more certain often with another witness.

Greg Laurie Crusade at Angel Stadium
Anaheim, California, August 17-19, 2018
“This is the book. How many of you brought a Bible with you tonight? Hold your Bible up. We are not ashamed of the Word of God. This message has been sent to us from Heaven, given to us in a book and everything you need to know about God is right here in the Bible. No wonder people don’t want it displayed on a billboard or anywhere else. God has given us a message that we all need to hear tonight that we are going to get from this book. The Bible is not just the book of the week or the book of the month or the book of the year or the book of the decade; the Bible is the book of the ages because it is God's book and He speaks to us through it."
Laurie, who has likened the current state of our nation to the historically turbulent time in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s that ignited the spiritual awakening known as the Jesus Movement said, "Our state and our country need a spiritual awakening, and that starts right here, right now, with us. The last great revival in our country began in California, and we say, 'Lord, do it again!'"
The 29th Southern California Harvest Crusade went off without a hitch at Angel Stadium in Anaheim CA as over 100,000 people attended the three-night evangelism crusade and were treated to performances by top Christian artists Chris Tomlin, MercyMe and Phil Wickham. Laurie spoke each night placing special emphasis on California’s—and the nation’s—need for revival.
As Laurie always ends each night of Harvest with an invitation for those who want to accept Christ in their lives to walk down to the field, as many as 9,260 people made professions of faith during the weekend. Laurie said:
"It has been amazing to see God work so powerfully all these years [29th Crusade], with over half a million people making professions of faith to follow Christ. This weekend was no exception either. ... To God be the Glory!"

Deuteronomy 32:20-22, 23-51
More than any time in the past seventy years, we are witnessing the status-quo of moral and societal degradation being challenged by President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. God is currently using these two leaders.
Therefore, the emergence of “The Trump Derangement Syndrome” [TDS] is only one sign (out of many) forecasting the true nature of the increasingly deranged times we find ourselves. However, we born again believers can be encouraged, as this current outrageous outcry from the liberal leftists is not only symptomatic of the lateness of our day and age, but is also indicative of the nearness to our Lord’s return. (2 Timothy 3:1-2, 3-5)
Jesus said that things would progressively deteriorate the closer we got to the end. He likened the progression to birth pangs in a pregnancy (Matt. 24:3-22). The Apostle Peter spoke of the last days being filled with skeptics and mockers questioning if the Lord would ever return (2 Peter 3:1-3). Jesus half-brother, Jude, spoke of the apostasy and falling away and likened it to previous times in history, where sexual perversion would become normalized and false teachers would wreak great damage by creeping in unawares and leading many astray (Jude 1:15-18).
The truth about Jesus Christ is not accepted by the unregenerate, lost and unbelieving people of the world.
“Who [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:15-18
The lost person cannot accept the things of God at face value (1 Cor 1:18). Therefore, because of their love of sin and wickedness they suffer strong delusion (2 Thess 2:10-12) and God has ‘given them over:’ [See Deuteronomy 32:20-21, 32-35, 51]
“Even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:28-32
The coming of the lawless one (2 Thess 2:9) is according to the working of Satan. For those who hold fast to God’s word, (Rev. 3:10) have faith as He will remove His own and protect Israel.
“Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles,
until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”
Luke 21:24, Rom. 11:25-26
Those who search for a better future by destroying the past will move on to destroying the present.
The American Revolution [1765-1783], unlike the French, was based not on a murderous search for leftist revolutionary purity, but on accepting our faults and flaws while trying to still live as our best selves.
New York City has been tearing out plaques memorializing Robert E. Lee attached to a tree that he had once planted. The city is named after King James II whose Royal African Company branded thousands of slaves with DY for the Duke of York. Queens is named after the wife of King Charles II (James’ brother) whose husband was also quite active in the slave trade.
The Maryland charter was received by Cecil Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore, whose family owned slaves. Anne Arundel County is named after Cecil's wife. New Jersey was named by George Carteret under a grant from Charles II. Carteret was connected to the African slave trade through the Royal African Company. A number of areas in New Jersey are named after him and his family. That includes the city of Elizabeth, New Jersey, named after Carteret’s wife. South and North Carolina, named after Charles I, and Maryland, named after his wife, who had authorized a trade in African slaves.
Virginia and (West Virginia) are named after Elizabeth I who authorized a trade in slaves and at least one of whose ships carried slaves. Delaware is named after Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr, who served as governor of Virginia. Louisiana is named after Louis XIV, the Sun King, whose Code Noir (Black Code) set out the parameters of slavery.
William Penn, the Quaker and liberal role model after whom Pennsylvania is named, owned slaves. Nor does heading west offer any escape from history.
In California, its leftist city of Berkeley has an even bigger problem. It’s named after the Irish empiricist George Berkeley. Berkeley was not only a slave owner, but a vigorous advocate for the enslavement of Africans and Indians. His name has touched off controversy at Yale and UC Berkeley.
To rename the nation of America we can start off by renaming eleven states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, California, Washington, and Maryland.
Or we can stop the insanity right now. Our choice is clear; reject the left or rename America.

3-7-14, In 2010 - 2011 the WISE satellite imaged nearly 750 million stars, asteroids and galaxies, some of which had never been spotted before. Davy Kirkpatrick said: "We're finding objects that were totally overlooked before."
After completing its primary mission, WISE began a hibernation stage. Reactivated in 2013 and named NEOWISE, the satellite began its current search for potentially hazardous comets and near-Earth asteroids. Each of the two new studies found objects the other one missed, suggesting that even more distant neighbors exist outside the solar system. Mission principal investigator Ned Wright of UCLA said:
"We think there are even more stars to find out there with WISE. We don't know our sun's backyard as well as you might think."

Netflix Under Fire: Show Host Goes Off The Rails
7-8-18, On the Michelle Wolf show she went so far as to say 'God Bless Abortion.' She called those who are pro-life anti-woman claiming that those who support life and use the phrase, pro-life, are using the phrase as ‘propaganda’ and having an abortion is something to be ‘proud of’ because it’s a ‘good thing.’
8-19-18, The impending retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has many people in a tizzy. Why? The comedian, Michelle Wolf on Netflix explained saying that “although it’s great for his wrinkly head, it could be catastrophic for reproductive rights, because it’s almost certain Trump will try to replace him with someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade. That would be a major setback for women in America because the “pro-life” movement is propaganda created by men in order to control women from having a say in doing something that men can’t do: create life." [Almighty God creates life requiring a man and woman to cooperate.]
Grief Women Suffer Post-Abortion Syndrome
Many women who are suffering unexpected grief or depression after an abortion, often with little understanding or support from their partner or loved ones, is a reality. In those cases where the woman is keeping the abortion a secret, she must deal with these negative emotions completely alone. Some may even bury the associated negative emotions just in order to carry on with life, only to find that years - sometimes even decades - later, the unresolved negative emotions suddenly re-emerge, requiring healing. Certainly not something to be treated lightly or to celebrate ... More here
