Study: Sunscreen products block the ... - Vitamin D News
8-3-18, VitaminDNews -- Researchers found that deficiency in Vitamin D can be attributed to a lack of sun exposure. Resulting in chronic disease. They also report that the use of chemical "sunblocks," decreases vitamin D production by a staggering 99 percent.
The human body only produces vitamin D when skin is exposed to direct sunlight. Too little sunshine plus generous use of sunblock = serious health problems.
It's unlawful for chemical sunscreen manufacturers to advertise that sunscreen prevents melanoma skin cancer. Therefore, they pay dermatology groups millions of dollars to endorse their product and make that claim on their behalf.
The Skin Cancer Foundation is a marketing front group organized by sunscreen manufacturers to create a “Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Approval” which appears on sunscreen products to convince consumers into the false belief that their products prevent melanoma. Despicable. More here
Or take a vitamin D supplement - the Sun is better
In the early 20th century, sun therapy (heliotherapy) treated tuberculosis patients effectively. (Clark, W. Treatment of Bone and joint tuberculosis with Tuberculin and Heliotherapy. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery 1923;5:721-39.) Dr. Aguste Rollier’s records of 1,129 surgical TB cases showed heliotherapy (sun therapy) cured 87% of “closed cases” and 76% of “open cases.” More here: sunlightinstitute.org/tuberculosis-cases-sun-exposure-dropping/
3 Surprising Benefits of Vitamin D
4-7-20, Healthline -- Foods that contain vitamin D include: salmon. sardines. egg yolk. shrimp. milk (fortified) cereal (fortified) yogurt (fortified) orange juice (fortified).
You don't eat these foods or get sunshine? Take a supplement of Vitamin D. Although a clear connection with COVID-19 virus has not been found, a 2017 study involving more than 11,000 participants found evidence that vitamin D may help protect against upper respiratory tract infections.

CNN Suggests Joe Biden Could 'Step Aside' for Kamala Harris
8-12-20, Breitbart -- CNN editor-at-large Mr. Chris Cilizza said that former Vice President Joe Biden would “step aside” to elevate his new running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), all but conceding that Biden will not finish his presidential term, if elected. Also, CNN’s Brian Stelter, argued that it was “offensive and otherworldly” for conservatives to argue that Biden was too old and unhealthy to compete or to serve in office. Yet, Biden’s awkwardly worded announcement of his running mate suggested Harris might be expected “to lead this nation starting in January 2021.”
Senator Kamala Harris "accidentally" touts plans under a 'Harris Administration"
9-15-20, FoxNews -- Democrat Senator from California Ms Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's running mate in the 2020 election, raised eyebrows recently after she accidentally touted economic plans under a "Harris Biden Admin.... she tried to correct herself saying: "A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States. The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners."
Biden accidentally refers to Harris-Biden administration
9-15-20, WashExam -- During a veterans round table in Tampa, Florida 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden mistakenly promoted running mate Kamala Harris, elevating her to the top of their ticket. He said: “A Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing it further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in their classrooms."
Definition of 'dogma' generally applied to some strong belief which its adherents are not willing to discuss rationally.
9-22-20, Independent -- The devout Christian and former law professor at Notre Dame has been chosen for Supreme Court's Ginsburg seat. A 2017 clip from Ms Barrett’s nomination hearing for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Illinois where Senator Feinstein raised concerns over Barrett's devout Catholic faith has resurfaced. According to the Indianapolis Star at the hearing California Democrat Dianne Feinstein [Senator since 1992] told the 48-year-old Amy Coney Barrett - when asked if her faith would interfere with her rulings on the court; Ms Barrett claimed that she would be able to keep her professional and religious beliefs separate." Feinstein said: “I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you."
8-7-20, Dan McLaughlin, National Review-- If a Supreme Court vacancy opens up between now and the end of the year, Republicans should fill it. Given it would be political suicide for Republicans to refrain from filling a vacancy; there is no law or no norm opposing it. Historically, only opposing parties of the Senate and White House have chosen not to vote on a vacancy such as with Obama in 2016. There is no chance that the Democrats, in the same position, would ever reciprocate, as their own history illustrates.

Prophecy Update: Three Important ‘Things’
Jesus told Pilate ‘this is not My kingdom’
God said, v2 "Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, "When I bring the sword upon a land..." v11 I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: Therefore, the righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth." [See Matthew Henry Commentary here]
9-27-20, In this week's prophecy update, Pastor JD Farag of Calvary Chapel in Hawaii he describes three of the current world horrors. He searches the scriptures connecting dots of current events without the clutter of opinion and special events like the upcoming US election; a short summary follows:
- Black Lives Matter [BLM] organization is Marxist and demonic – all lives matter especially eternal lives! The organizers of BLM admit they call on the demonic dead and are a Marxist organization.
- Peace agreements between Israel and Islamic nations – [take Trump out of the examination of the issue] see 1 Thessalonians 5:3 Peace and security destruction will come … Ezekiel 38:13 gulf states Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain will merely agree with a false peace. Daniel 9:27 wicked one will … Daniel 8:24-25 wonderfully destroy many with deceit. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 enemy will set himself up as God. The end game is destruction by a phony peace. Zechariah 12:1-3 Jerusalem will be the obsession of the entire world; enemies will cut it in two… ‘two state solution.’ God will cut in pieces those who are responsible for it. [It’s already happening!!]
- Covid-19 so called pandemic – he isn’t saying there’s no virus … but he did say there’s no pandemic! [American Thinker says it's a HOAX here ]This issue is the most divisive and destructive in human history. The world’s actions over the Covid virus will end the world as we know it. In Rev 13:15-18 we read about the Mark of the beast that’s necessary to buy or sell goods or receive services. Because of this virus all will be digitally traced and tracked. Revelation 17-18 tells of a one world economy, world government and one world religion. Religious and Economic ‘Babylon.’The leaders of the world speak of ‘re-imagining’ the entire world’s global economy. The result = a global collapse = world leaders call it the ‘GREAT RESET’ … we call it the ‘Great Tribulation.’
- Matthew 24:21 - For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the …
- Daniel 12:1 - And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the …
- Matthew 24:29 - Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, [smoke wildfires/volcanoes??] …
Conclusion: Christians are struggling and worrying about the upcoming election.
What are we fighting for?
This world is not our home! John 18:33-38
Ephesians 2:19; Hebrews 13:14
"Therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God's household."

Minnesota Voter Fraud Investigation: Muslim Democrat Woman from Somalia, Ilhan Omar Campaign Hit with Major Voter Fraud Allegations in New Voter Fraud Schemes
9-28-20, WesternJournal -- James O'Keefe and Project Veritas has released new report of their investigation that appears to show a massive, ballot-harvesting racket conducted in the district of Muslim Congresswoman, Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar in the swing state of Minnesota. A video apparently exposes a sophisticated ballot-harvesting scheme targeting mostly Islamic Somali-born seniors in Minneapolis, MN. Those who spoke to O’Keefe alleged that in many cases there are exchanges of cash for mail-in ballots. One video shows an alleged ballot harvester named Liban Mohamed the brother of Minneapolis City Council member Jamal Osman boasting on the social media app SnapChat about carrying hundreds of absentee ballots in his car; Mohamed brags: “Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only. Money is the king in this world a campaign is driven by money.”
An anonymous former Minneapolis political worker told O’Keefe that Omar’s campaign deputy district director, Ali Isse Gainey, ran a separate ballot-harvesting scheme targeting elderly people: “Knock on the door [of the elderly] and say, ‘Did your ballots come? Give it to me.’” Many people, including young people and women, were paid for mail-in ballots before the August Minnesota primary. “Cash, cash, cash. They were carrying bags of money. When you vote and they mark you off, then you get in the van, they give you the cash.”
Omar Jamal, who chairs the Minneapolis Somali Watchdog Group, said the video posted by Liban Mohamed bragging about ballot harvesting is just the tip of the iceberg. Mohamed is one of “many people” working for Congresswoman Ilhan Omar Jamal said: “It’s an open secret. She will do anything that she can do to get elected and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that. If American people don’t pay attention to what’s happening, the country will collapse.”
See 17 minute video here
It essentially comes down to voters being compelled to request ballots, which are then picked up by political activists. Those not paid for their ballots are allegedly manipulated into filling out and giving the ballots away. O'Keefe reports that: “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot-harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities — and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk,” Ilhan Omar and her campaign may be behind one of the biggest voter fraud schemes in American history.”
Foreign Money Flowing To Hunter Biden Triggered Bank Alarm ...
9-14-20, NYPost: Hunter Biden, 50, is a recovering drug user that caused his expulsion from the US Military. He is father of four, including a child whose fatherhood was recently determined in a court case. He briefly dated his late brother Beau Biden’s widow and strangely the Democrats chose him to introduced his father at the recent Democrat National Convention.
In Ukraine, Hunter Biden earned $83,333 monthly for four years as a board member of the energy company Burisma Holdings, despite no relevant industry experience. During Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, defense attorney Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, highlighted US government assessments that the company was corrupt and sought to tie Joe Biden directly to his son’s employment. She said: “Here’s how Hunter Biden came to join Burisma’s board in April 2014: He was brought on the board by Devon Archer, his business partner. Public records show that April 16, 2014, Devin Archer meets with Vice Pres Biden at the White House. Just two days later, on April 18, 2014, Hunter Biden quietly joins Burisma.” More from NYPost here

Their report cited at least four large bank transactions that the banks flagged in suspicious activity reports (SARS) to the Treasury Dept’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
The report said: “The Treasury records acquired by the Chairmen show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals. In particular, these documents show that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from foreign sources as a result of business relationships that he built during the period when his father was vice president of the United States and after. =>

<= "In August 2017, a subsidiary of CEFC China Energy, which was owned by Chinese billionaire Ye Jianming at the time, sent Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco, a $100,000 payment that “was identified for potential criminal financial activity.”
Another transaction was flagged the report stated "a month later a line of credit was opened the same day that CEFC signed a much-heralded deal with Russian oil giant Rosneft in September 2017. On the same day that the impending Rosneft deal was announced, Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong, a Chinese national who has reportedly executed transactions for limited liability companies controlled by Ye Jianming, applied to a bank and opened a line of credit under the business name Hudson West III LLC. Between Jan. 25, 2016, and Nov. 16, 2016, Burisma sent nine wires totaling $752,054.99 to Owasco with each of the nine transactions listing ‘Owasco, PC/Robert Biden’ as the recipient, the payments were identified for potential financial criminal activity.”

'to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord Jesus'
Fellowship Bible Chapel's Pastor Steve has reached the 'pearly gates!'
1 Corinthians 5:6-8; Hebrews 11:1
9-27-20, With a heavy heart brother John Haller shares this week's Bible Prophecy Update as he grieves the loss of Pastor and Brother Steve Mitchell. "Our Brother, our Shepherd and our friend is today basking in the Light and love of his Lord for Whom he so faithfully served." Clearly we do walk by faith, not by sight; but believing. Not without sorrow and grief, but with hope and confidence. Until such time that the Lord takes us to be with Him, either by claiming his Church by rapture or when each of us comes to the end of our earthly lives, we must stay vigilant reaching out to share God's good news of salvation only possible through the Lord Jesus. We do not know who God may call for leadership of 'Fellowship Bible Chapel' [FBC]; but we do know one thing that truth will continue to be shared regardless of the road we must walk, as long as God gives us the life and breath to do it.
John shares the world news of the week and 2 Timothy 3:1-3 about how in the 'last days' perilous times will come. And in the USA the huge firestorm that is expected because President Trump has nominated a strong conservative Christian Mother, Amy Coney Barrett to replace the liberal abortion loving Ruth Ginsburg.
He goes over the horrors of the day with the rioting, looting and mayhem in the USA - the potentiality of the Presidential election fraud - Covid virus update - California doubling down on homosexual support - increased saber rattling in Russia - collapse of Lebanon as well as current events in Israel with the recent peace initiatives with the UAE & Bahrain and much more.

Our Heavenly Home
Apostle John's vision: "I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
v 1-5 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever."
9-19-20, Pastor Charles Stanley -- A popular misconception about heaven is that it’s ethereal and lacks any tangible substance, but this view is not supported in Scripture. The Apostle John described the New Jerusalem as a material structure (Revelation 21:10-21). Although there are aspects that mirror our earthly existence, some things will be very different as follows:
- There will be no temple, “for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple” (Revelation 21:22). Throughout the ages, there have been dedicated places of worship, like a temple or church building, but none of these will be necessary when God dwells among us.
- The city has no need for sun nor moon, “for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb” (Revelation 21:23). God’s glory will light every inch of that city, and there will be no night.
- The gates of the city will always be open. No enemy will ever storm these gates. Nothing impure will ever enter because sin is banished and only holiness dwells in this heavenly city.
- It will be a place of abundance. From the living water originating at the throne of God to the fruit from the Tree of Life, all we need will be supplied.
- There will no longer be any curse. Death and decay will be absent, pain and suffering will cease to exist and no more tears. Revelation 21:4
- The government will be perfect. The Lord God will reign from His throne, and we’ll see His face and serve Him forever in delight.
What awaits us in the New Jerusalem is joy beyond comprehension because we’ll be with the Lord, the source of everything good. Source
FISA Court Confirms The Government Lied In Every Spy Warrant Application Against Carter Page
9-17-20, TheFederalist -- A newly declassified June 2020 ruling from a FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court] Court shows the US government lied about its legal basis for spying on former candidate businessman Donald Trump's campaign official Carter Page.
Under the court’s 21-page assessment, information obtained by all four of the warrants and applications is invalidated due to its illegal acquisition, unless the Dept of Justice is using it “to investigate or prosecute potential crimes relating to the conduct of the Page or Crossfire Hurricane investigations” such as the FBI’s overreach and its violations of FISA. [..]
In the January 2020 ruling, a FISA judge claimed that the FBI violated protections for U.S. citizens under FISA law because the government “did not have probable cause that Mr. Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power.”
The FISA Court issued an order in December of 2019 that acknowledged the FBI’s failure “to include exculpatory evidence in its four successful applications for surveillance warrants.” This order relied heavily on the 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the FBI investigation of Page brought forth by the Dept of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz demonstrating the lack of probable cause for the spying...
Trays of mail, including absentee ballots, found in a ditch
9-24-20, WashExam -- Police in Greenville, Wisconsin, found three trays of mail, including absentee ballots, in a ditch.. The Outagamie County Sheriff's Office discovered the trays in a ditch … U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero said: "Conflicting, vague, and ambivalent managerial signals could also sow substantial doubt about whether the USPS is up to the task, whether it possesses the institutional will power and commitment to its historical mission, and so to handle the exceptional burden associated with a profoundly critical task in our democratic system, that of collecting and delivering election mail a few weeks from now."
How to End Well
At the end of the Apostle Paul’s life he said: “I am now ready to be offered; the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.”
2 Timothy 4:6-8
9-25-20, Pastor Charles Stanley -- Many people think about the last years of life as an opportunity to just relax. But this does not align with God's purpose for us; He wants us to serve Him all the days of our lives. Let's look at the Apostle Paul's journey exploring what it means to finish well. He spent time pouring into others until the very end of his life. Consider the letters he wrote to Timothy from a prison cell prior to being executed. In every season of life, God calls us to serve others.
Notice how, when writing about his life, Paul chose words descriptive of a battle. He understood the human struggle against sin as well as the challenges of pain and persecution in the trials we all face--even in doing kingdom work like preaching Christ to a fiercely resistant society.
This godly servant's life was also marked by surrender. His mindset is obvious in these words: "present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship" (Rom. 12:1). He was not afraid of Nero, nor was he struggling to stay alive. Paul trusted God to determine everything about his life, including where he would go, what he would do, and when he would die.
Death did not scare him, because he knew he would dwell with Jesus forever.
God doesn't require our lives to be perfect in order to finish strong. We can live life fully and be ready to meet our Maker by surrendering, walking victoriously with Christ, and serving others. If Jesus called you home today, would you--like Paul--be confident that you lived well until the end? [Note: Tradition says his martyrdom and death was by beheading.] Source
Paul said: “Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:20-21
The Martyrdom of Apostle Paul
Apostle Paul is believed to have been martyred in this first wave of Roman persecution around age 66, but his death is not as well documented in early writings as Peter’s. One thing seems certain: Paul was not crucified because he was a Roman citizen, tradition says his martyrdom was by beheading.
Australia's Leader, Daniel Andrews wants to create a law permitting innocent Victorians to be arrested and detained indefinitely without evidence - on the word of power-hungry public servants.
- Top lawyers have object to plan letting public servants make arrests as abuse of power
- They would be able to arrest people if they think they might spread Covid-19
- Lawyers have warned that officials may get power hungry and abuse powers
- There are fears people could be indefinitely detained with no access to justice
9-23-20, DailyMail -- The leader of Australia, Daniel Andrews wants a new law to forcibly arrest and quarantine people who object to his Covid virus mandates. Those who could be arrested include positive patients or close contacts who officials suspect may refuse to self-isolate, such as protesters or people with mental health difficulties. They could be taken to a hotel for mandatory quarantine for as long as the authorized officer believes is necessary. Critics say Mr Andrews wants to create his own version of the Stasi, the East German secret police force which spied on citizens through a network of informants and arrested more than 250,000 people between 1950 and 1990.
The measures are outlined in the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) and Other Acts Amendment Bill 2020, which will meet resistance when read in the upper house next month.

DEM House Leader Nancy Pelosi won’t rule out impeachment to stop Trump's SCOTUS Vote
9-20-20, California Democrat Majority Leader & Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi recently refused to rule out again trying to impeach Pres Trump in their effort to block Senate Republicans from voting on his Constitutionally lawful nominee to fill Ginsburg's Supreme Court vacancy ... Pelosi noted. “We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now ..."
GOP House Leader Threatens Vote To Remove Pelosi
9-24-20, CA Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently said that Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be removed as House Speaker if she tries to bring impeachment charges against Pres Trump just to keep him from nominating a Supreme Court justice. He said, “The president is supposed to move forward and he will. The Senate is supposed to take the action and they will — it's their constitutional right and they are following through."
Historically, throughout American history, when the current President's party controls the Senate they have voted to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year. Even in a lame-duck session after the election, even after defeat. Historically, when the opposite party controls the Senate, the Senate has blocked the Supreme Court nominees. Both of those precedents are settled by experience as old as the republic. Republicans should fill the vacant SCOTUS seat. Given the vital importance of the Court to rank-and-file Republican voters and grassroots activists it would be political suicide for Republicans to refrain from filling a vacancy. There is no law preventing it.

Charlie Kirk 4 min report here
9-23-20, Wash Exam -- Majority of media coverage around the death of Breonna Taylor on March 13, 2020 is false messaging to push a political narrative before the upcoming election. Ms Taylor was killed in a drug raid - a neighbor testified he heard the police knock and call out 'POLICE!' before entering. The boyfriend, Kenneth Walker was the target who immediately opened fire at the police who fired back and Ms Taylor was accidentally hit.
Tucker Carlson of Fox News reports: "Breonna's death is a sad tragedy, but it wasn’t an act of racism. There's no evidence for that, and if there was, we would admit it. But [the media] don't care. All they care about is getting people to believe that this dystopia they describe is real. Why? It’s an election year. If enough property burns, if enough public streets are impassible, in the end, people may decide, 'I'll vote for Joe Biden just to make it stop!'"
Kentucky's first black Attorney General Daniel Cameron said: "If we simply act on emotion or outrage, there is no justice. Mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by violence is not justice. It just becomes revenge." More here

The extradition of Journalist Julian Assange from UK to USA would undermine freedom of speech
9-24-20, Guardian -- Journalist Julian Assange founded Wikileaks in 2006; he's currently being held at the HM Prison Belmarsh in the United Kingdom charged with espionage. In April 2019 Julian Assange independently stated that Russia was not the source of the DNC publication. Reportedly, in Feb 2020 Pres Trump has offered him a pardon if he agreed to again say that Russia was not involved in hacking emails from Democrats during the 2016 presidential election. [The White House has denied this report.]
Assange released Hillary’s emails revealing:
• The Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia and Qatar
• Hillary Clinton was paid $675,000 for speaking at Goldman Sachs.
• Hillary was the primary architect of the war in Libya. As Sec of State, Hillary believed overthrowing of Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi would establish her credentials as the future president. Instead, the war she sought has left Libya in chaos and has resulted Gadhafi’s murder and 40,000 dead.
And how do the Democrats respond to these facts? By calling anyone who believes they are true to be “a conspiracy theorist.”
This is the first time in the history of the US that a journalist has been indicted under the Espionage Act for publishing truthful information. The world knows, however, that Assange never spied on the US. What he did was publish documents he received from convicted US Army Intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, who was sentenced to 35 years in prison; but in 2017 he/she was released by Pres Obama.
The risks that Assange will be extradited are real. Assange provided important news to the cause of liberty & shouldn't be punished for doing so. He is a champion of democracy and should be released immediately.
Trump Denies He Offered Julian Assange a ‘Win-Win’ Deal
9-18-20, Bloomberg -- Australian-born Julian Assange, 49, is fighting to avoid being sent to the United States, where he is charged with conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law over the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011. His lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, said in a witness statement to the court that in 2017 she observed a meeting at the Ecuadorian embassy in London between Assange and Republican then-US Representative Dana Rohrabacher who offered to arrange a pardon for Assange in return for information about the hacking of Democrat emails before the 2016 US presidential election. White House denied a pardon had ever been offered to Assange and called the claims “a complete fabrication and a total lie.”
On September 7, 2020, Julian Assange left his cell in London's Belmarsh Prison to attend a hearing. After a long period of isolation, he was finally able to meet his partner, sweetheart & lawyer Stella Moris and see their two sons— 3 yr old Gabriel & 1 yr old Max.
Julian Assange's lawyer Stella Morris Reports While at Ecuadorean Embassy She and Julian Had Secret Romance Resulting in Two Children
4-12-20, NYPost -- While holed up at the Ecuadorean embassy in London Julian Assange and lawyer Stella Morris secretly had two children.
In 2015 the South African-born lawyer began a secret romantic relationship with Julian. The couple’s first son, Gabriel, was born in 2017 and Max in 2019. Both births were filmed and sent to Julian. The couple managed to keep their relationship and the births secret from the Ecuadorean staff and diplomats who had given Assange asylum refuge at the embassy for seven years. She and Julian hope to be married someday.

9-20-20, Fox News host Howard Kurtz criticized CNN anchor Anderson Cooper for asking softball questions of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden during a town hall on the rival network last week. Kurtz said: “Anderson Cooper moderated a CNN town hall with Joe Biden, and let’s just say he didn’t exactly grill the former vice president. Anderson Cooper asked only a couple of skeptical questions by my count. He said to his guest, 'Democrat California Rep. Jane Harman. Given the way that President Trump is aggressively questioned in interviews, at press conferences, at the ABC town hall with George Stephanopoulos, doesn’t this reinforce the impression that the media kind of go easy on Joe Biden?”
God Honors Our Commitment to Him: Trust and Obey
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6; Psalm 46:1
9-23-20, * -- Daniel and his friends faced the same dilemma we do--how to live a holy life in a godless culture. At one time, our society readily accepted Christian values and standards, but that era is quickly passing. Our challenge today is to live under God's authority while remaining in submission to the law of the land. At times we are forced to choose between the two, but if we'll seek the Lord's guidance before marching defiantly forward, He'll make our path straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Had Daniel bluntly declared, "I won't eat this food!" [Daniel 1:12] he wouldn't have lasted long and we wouldn't have the book of Daniel in the Bible. =>
<= The Lord gave him the wisdom and gift of discretion and diplomacy. God honored his commitment and provided a way for him to live righteously in a pagan world.We tend to hold up Daniel and his three friends as extraordinary people who lived amazing lives. However, the Lord can and does amazing things in the lives of today's ordinary born again Christians also. The determining factor is not the greatness of the individual but rather, their commitment to God Who can do remarkable things in a life fully devoted to Him.
We don't know all that God could do in our lives until we radically commit ourselves to Him. Exodus 15:2

President Trump Honored Veterans of the 1961 Cuban ‘Bay of Pigs Invasion’
9-23-20, Today, at the White House President Trump honored veterans of the Cuban invasion to oust the brutal Communist Fidel Castro at the 'Bay of Pigs'.
History: The 1960 Cuban government confiscated private property (much of it owned by North American interests), Several U.S. congressmen and senators, from early 1960, denounced Communist Fidel Castro; and by June Congress passed legislation enabling Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower to take retaliatory steps: the United States cut off sugar purchases from Cuba and soon thereafter placed an embargo on all exports to Cuba except food and medicine. In his last month in the White House, January 1961, Eisenhower broke all diplomatic ties with Cuba.
Then the new Democrat President John F. Kennedy followed through with the plan ordering Brigade 2506's Cuban invasion with 1,400 Cuban exiles to America that sadly had a terrible result. The poorly kept secret of the invasion plan caused even Cuba to know it was coming on April 17, 1961.
Led by the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] paramilitary officers, with help from the U.S. military, the plan was for an invasion of Cuba by a counter-revolutionary insurgency composed of U.S.-trained & anti-Castro Cuban exiles. The intention was to invade Cuba and instigate an uprising among the Cuban people, hoping to remove Castro from power.
A professor of Latin American studies at Kean University, Frank Argote-Freyre said: “It was a total fiasco; it was a terrible, botched job by Eisenhower and Kennedy, one of the worst military operations conceived. Kennedy sent hundreds of Cuban exiles into a hopeless struggle.” =>
<= The invasion actually benefited Castro who used the invasion to make carte-blanche arrests in Cuba of all his political enemies.
Some 1,000 of the men were capture and sentenced to decades in prison; some were executed. Two US B-26 bomber airplanes were shot down and 2 supply ships were lost.From May 1961 Kennedy unofficially worked to ransom the prisoners. After painstaking negotiations by James B. Donovan, Castro finally agreed to release the prisoners in exchange for $53,000,000 worth of food and medicine. Between December 1962 and July 1965 the survivors were returned to the United States.
On a personal level, many veterans still push the cause of a democratic Cuba; determined not to let the failed invasion and the many who gave their lives for freedom in Cuba, be lost from memory. They setup a museum in Miami one worker, Jorge Marquet said:
“We wanted to save memorabilia from our time in the Cuban jails. We want to preserve the story of what happened. We continue the struggle. We still go to rallies and demonstrate for liberty and democracy in Cuba. We will never forget about Cuba. We still think and long for the same thing that took us to those shores in 1961, risking our lives – we want to free Cuba from the dictatorship.”

SCOTUS battle prompts Democrat threats, calls for arson
9-19-20, FoxNews -- Democrats have long criticized Sen McConnell, R-Ky., claiming hypocrisy given his previous refusal to hold a vote on Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland before the 2016 elections; but historically in an election year opposing party Senate to the White House has never had a vote. THIS time both the Senate & WH are in agreement the same party controls.
Author, leftist Trump hater Mr Reza Aslan recently threatened by a tweet: "If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f-----g thing down." He later responded to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's vow to hold a vote on President Trump's nominee. "Over our dead bodies, literally."
Democrats answer to anything they dislike is increasingly ‘Burn it all down’
9-21-20, NYPost -- Much of the left is now threatening to kneecap an important institution of American government on a partisan vote in an act of ideological vengeance. If the Republican led Senate confirms Pres Trump's appointee filling Ginsburg’s Court seat before or after the 2020 election, leftists say that if Biden wins, the Democrats retaliate by packing the high court.
Shadi Hamid of The Atlantic wrote a piece expressing his worry “Trump will win re-election and Democrats and others on the left will be unwilling, even unable, to accept the result. There may be mass unrest and political violence across American cities.”
"Wherefore we labor, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad."
2 Corinthians 5:9-10
9-12-20, Pastor Charles Stanley -- Every Christian is answerable to the Lord Jesus for how he or she lived life. We will not stand before the Great White Throne of Revelation 20:11 -- that's where unbelievers will be judged.
Born again believers in Christ will go before Christ's judgment seat and give an account of ourselves. 2 Corinthians 5:9-10
Perhaps this seems like a contradiction: Believers will not be judged, but will stand before Christ's judgment seat. The Greek word that 2 Corinthians uses for "judgment seat" is bema, which means a place of accountability. So those who are repentant sinners who believe in the Savior will not be condemned to eternal separation from God, but will live and be accountable to Him.
Do not confuse accountability with giving a defense. We won't defend our actions -- those things we said and did that brought no honor to the Lord or shamed His name. =>
<= God likens them to wood, hay and stubble, which are items fit only for the fire (1 Cor. 3:13). The valuable thoughts, words and deeds that serve the Lord honoring His name are rewarded. Jesus promised various rewards for those who faithfully serve Him on earth (Matthew 5:12; 1 Corinthians 3:14; Revelation 22:12). Some are crowns (James 1:12; 1 Peter 5:4; Revelation 3:11).
God has given every believer an individual purpose and tasks along with the personality, talents and spiritual gifts needed to fulfill those tasks.
The question that will be answered at Christ's judgment seat is, Did I live out my purpose to honor and glorify God? Will He say, 'Well, done thou good and faithful servant.' ?? Matthew 25:23
Standing before Christ's judgment seat is something to look forward to. We need not fear, since we are beloved co-heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:17, 34). He is eager to bestow rewards for faithfulness and obedience. Source
Arab Muslims are People of Color, Arab Christians are White People
NY TIMES Concludes it depends on their religion
Also: Pastor Manning Looks at '1619 Project'
"Why don't they research why black people are currently killing black people?"
9-22-20, Daniel Greenfield [excerpted] -- What the New York Times’ racial list says about the persecution of Christians while maintaining its proud commitment to printing all the news that will divide Americans by race, sex and creed. The Times published a list of what it claimed were the "922 of the most powerful people in America" while claiming that 112 of the 431 House of Representatives members are people of color.[..]
Like all racist Rohrsarch charts, the Times’ racial list says more about it than about America; claiming that Rep. Rashida Tlaib as a person of color and listing Rep. Justin Amash as white. Tlaib's parents and Amash's father both came from Arab towns and neighborhoods in Israel. Amash's mother came from Syria. They both have traditional Arab names. So how is Tlaib a person of color while Amash is white? Their Israeli families in Israel are both Arabs, but, aside from Tlaib being a militant leftist Trump hater, Amash is an ex-GOP now Libertarian, the only obvious difference is that Amash’s family was Christian while Tlaib’s family is Muslim.
The New York Times’ message is that Muslims are “people of color” and Christians aren’t. It doesn’t matter if their families might have lived some 20 minutes away from each other. Arab Christians are white while Arab Muslims are a minority group - it's about religion. [..]
It doesn't matter whether you come from Syrian, Lebanon, Iraq or even Iran: if you're not a practicing Muslim, you're white.
It’s not just Jews or Arabs who aren’t considered minorities unless they’re Muslim. Rep. Anna Eshoo's father was an Assyrian Christian who, in her own words, "was driven from the Middle East." The New York Times still lists her as white. Assyrians and Armenians are not people of color. The difference isn’t, as we see in Amash and Tlaib’s case, racial, it’s religious. [..]
The New York Times' awkward absurdities short list:
The Left barely notices when white leftists have been able to get away with pretending to be black. But when it comes to the Middle East, it recognizes only one group of people as legitimate. Its conquerors.
Christians, Jews, and non-practicing Muslims need not apply.
The New York Times’ racial list is revealing when it comes to the prejudices and agendas of the allies of the Islamist movements and their organizations ethnically cleansing Christians. The Left’s twisted ideas about race lead it to present the region’s persecuted Christian, Jewish, and non-Muslim minorities as white oppressors, while its Muslim supremacist majority are the oppressed people of color who need to be liberated from the oppression of their victims. This isn’t just twisted. It’s an ideological argument for genocide. *

Supreme Court Led By Ginsburg Strikes Down Louisiana Law Requiring Abortion Doctors to have Hospital Rights
6-29-20, NBCNews - Led by Justice Ginsburg the Supreme Court, in 5-4 ruling, strikes down Louisiana abortion law. The measure would have required doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of a clinic. Two Louisiana doctors and a medical clinic sued to get the law overturned. They said it would leave only one doctor at a single clinic to provide services for nearly 10,000 women as ONLY ONE abortion doctor had hospital privileges. As lawyers for the state and the Trump administration urged the justices to green light the law, arguing it is necessary to protect public safety, Ginsburg worked to dismantle each of their arguments one by one. =>
<= At times, she even went after her own conservative colleagues. Abortion rights supporters, who have spent years in the trenches, are fearful that the Court is rolling back killing baby rights.Ginsburg noted that in "most hospitals in Louisiana," in order to get admitting privileges, you have to have admitted a threshold number of patients. "Abortion providers," she said, if they are not doing obstetrics and gynecology, wouldn't qualify because "their patients don't go to the hospital." Ginsburg then pivoted to the district court's finding that a transfer to a hospital was required "far less than once a year, or less than one per several thousand patients." "Most of the people who get abortions never have any need to go to a hospital, isn't that so?" More here from CNN
Unlike the liberals calling for the country to use Ginsburg’s death as an opportunity to radicalize, Ginsburg; she was a free thinker who would not have succumbed to their calls to action. In 2016 after criticizing then-candidate businessman Donald J. Trump, calling him a “faker,” addressing his tax returns and saying “he really has an ego” among other things [she later sorta apologized for making those statements against a presidential candidate]. In 2016 she said: ‘I think It’s Dumb And Disrespectful’ for the football professionals to disrespect America's "National Anthem" and rioters to burn the US flag ... More here
12-17-19, CNN -- Justice Ginsburg weighed in on President Donald Trump's impeachment. She said she hopes there will be "good people on both sides of the aisle to say let's stop this dysfunction" and "work together for the good of the country."
King David of Israel Conquered the Ammonites
He Confiscated King Milcom's 75 Pound Gold Crown
"David took their king's crown from off his head, the weight whereof was a talent of gold with the precious stones: and it was set on David's head."
2 Kings 23:13
"The high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mountain of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Sidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile."
9-21-20, With God's approval King David conquered many cities of the enemies of God. One was Rabbah - in today's Islamic nation of Jordan. The crown is said to weigh a 'talent' - between 67 & 75 pounds. Some have questioned the validity of the weight ... but considering that many humans can carry up to 70% of their own body weight on their heads it's not unreasonable.
Worldwide in many rural places of Africa, India, Pakistan women carry very heavy loads on their heads. More here
God said about Solomon: For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. v33 Because that they have forsaken Me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in My ways, to do that which is right in Mine eyes, and to keep My statutes and My judgments, as did David his father. v13 And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile. 1 Kings 11:5, 33, 23:13
King Solomon sinned greatly against the Lord (1 Kings 11:3–13). Sadly, he married pagan wives, built pagan altars for them, and even participated in pagan worship himself. The only reason God did not immediately take the kingdom from Solomon was that God wanted to keep His covenant with David (1 Kings 11:12). The record of Solomon’s sins, plus the dismal tone in Ecclesiastes, has led some to suggest that Solomon was not saved and is not in heaven today. However, in his writings in the book of Ecclesiastes we see a dark study on a life lived apart from God. Solomon looks back over his wasted years and finds no joy in them, only futility, vanity, and “a chasing after the wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:14). But he had learned his lesson—albeit the hard way—and he wraps up the book with this advice: “Now all has been heard; / here is the conclusion of the matter: / Fear God and keep his commandments, / for this is the duty of all mankind. / For God will bring every deed into judgment, / including every hidden thing, / whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13–14). This surely sounds like a man who has returned to the Lord and is trusting in Him.
- sad, John 14:1
- have sinned, Psalm 51:1
- facing danger, Psalm 91:1
- faith needs stimulation, Hebrews 11:1
- alone and sad, Psalm 23:1
