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.

The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. v 8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever."

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.

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.

The investigation found that: "Anthony Weiner carried on a months-long online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl during which she claims he asked her to dress up in 'school-girl' outfits for him on a video messaging application and pressed her to engage in 'rape fantasies.'

Peter Strzok, the FBI agent in charge of the Clinton email investigation, texted Lisa Page, a bureau attorney: "Got called up to Andy's earlier ... hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner's atty … Although FBI Dir Comey announced Mrs. Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling classified emails during a July 2016 speech, he added that he would not recommend criminal charges. Clinton’s IT team had deleted 33,000 supposedly non-work-related emails. Then on Oct 28, 2016
Comey sent a letter to Congress revealing that “the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation” and that the FBI would "allow investigators to review these emails.” Then on Nov. 6, 2016, he sent a follow-up letter that “we have not changed our conclusions" about not charging Clinton.

Houston Texas: At age 46 Heavy weight boxing champion who became a Christian preacher, GEORGE FOREMAN went back into boxing and won!
8-11-15, DailyRecord -- George Foreman heard a voice from God after he offered to donate his boxing prize money to charity: “I don’t want your money; I want you.” So George quit boxing and started "THE CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST."
He had trouble asking his congregation to give money so in 1994 he went back into boxing at age 46 and beat 26 yr old Michael Moorer for the Boxing Heavy Weight World Championship title for the second time. And he was later inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame and International Boxing Hall of Fame.
9-18-20, DailyCaller -- President Trump, VP Pence and a panel of education and history experts spoke in front of America’s founding documents inside the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The panel, headed by Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry Arnn, criticized the cynical American public school system that teaches students to be ashamed of American history.
'Don't Be Fooled'
"[We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair; ... Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things."
9-20-20, Today, Brother John Haller in Ohio reports that the Book of Revelation [and 2 Thess 2:10-12] tells us that in the end times, a delusion will be sent that will confound and confuse minds.
While we do not know the full impact or effect it will have, we do know that it will be an excruciatingly difficult time.
Fox news is no longer the faithful 'fair and balanced' reporter of world news. On Sept 16, 2020 Harris Falkner's guest was Newt Gingrich who was asked about how to stem the violence and rioting. When Newt responded with the truth about George Soros and the leftist in positions of law enforcement who aren't keeping criminals locked up ... they cut him off. She later apologized. Too little too late ... Perhaps OAN network is now the go to for unbiased news??
John Haller's one hour twenty minute video here
We are seeing delusion in our world today in the vigil being held for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. She was a woman who was a pro-abortion, anti-family, hard left judge whose votes contributed to the slaughter of nearly 30,000,000 babies in the womb. Even purported "evangelical" leaders [Galatians 5:22-26] are speaking of her "distinguished service" and well, those who honor, trust, and obey almighty God do not agree about her so called 'service.' We all have a certain date when God will call us out of this world and at that point, our fates are sealed. We are told we must not judge lest we be judged - however scripture also tells us by their fruit we shall know them:
- Matthew 7:16, 12:33 By their fruit you will recognize them.
- Luke 6:43 "No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
- Galatians 5:22 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.
2 Corinthians 11:14 “And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”

Pres Trump says he'll announce a woman nominee to replace Justice Ginsburg
9-19-20, Newsday -- Pres Trump said he'll choose a woman to replace the Justice Ginsburg early in the coming week which will be his third justice. Is it rare for a US president to nominate 3+ Supreme Court Justices? How many times has it happened?
It's not that rare. Since 1869, the year Congress increased the number of justices to nine, 12 of the 24 presidents successfully chose at least three members of the Supreme Court. The most recent president to get three justices on the high court was Ronald Reagan, from 1981 through 1988. On November 11, 1987, President Reagan had a Republican Senate before he was out of office and nominated Anthony Kennedy who was confirmed in a presidential-election year, 1988. More here
Senator Mitch McConnell Says Since 1880 NEVER has Opposing Party Nominee in Election Year Voted on SCOTUS Nominee
9-19-20, DailyCaller -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Trump’s Ginsburg replacement nominee would receive a vote in the Senate. He said: “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year. Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary. Once again, we will keep our promise. There will be a vote ..."
Can she be confirmed in 44 days? Since 1900 seventy percent of candidates were confirmed in 46 days or less. Some under 20 days; Ginsburg was approved in 45 days.
Taught by the Word
“Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.”
9-19-20, Henry Morris, III PhD -- This eight-verse section (Psalm 119:33-40) closely parallels a similar passage in Proverbs 2:1-5; both focus on being taught, gaining understanding and keeping “the Way” of God’s Word.
Certainly worth noting is the manner in which the psalmist asked to “go in the path of thy commandments” (Ps 119:35). In every case, the request is for God’s hand to control the process. There is no indication that the psalmist assumed the capability of finding these truths on his own as follows:
“Teach me, O LORD” (Psalm 119:33)
“Give me understanding” (Psalm 119:34)
“Make me to go” (Psalm 119:35)
“Incline my heart” (Psalm 119:36)
“Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity” (Psalm 119:37)
“Stablish thy word” (Psalm 119:38)
“Turn away my reproach” (Psalm 119:39)
“Quicken me in Thy righteousness” (Psalm 119:40)
However, having prayed for God’s intervention and oversight in his life, the psalmist promised to act on the given insight and order his life around “the way” so illumined by God’s instructions. He acknowledged his “delight” and his “longing” in the holy life and character revealed in the Scriptures and, like the Proverbs 2:1-5 passage, showed a willingness of the spiritual consciousness of his heart and mind to “understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God” (Proverbs 2:5).
May our prayer always be like this:
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24 Source

Old Sleepy Joe Biden says as president he would sign order forcing all Americans to wear masks
6-26-20, NYPost -- Biden’s stance is the polar opposite of President Trump, who has repeatedly told Americans it is their choice whether they wear face coverings and has himself not appeared in public in a mask while Joe does wear them.
In a CBS News interview Democrat former VP said he would sign an executive order and use all the tools in his arsenal to force people to wear face coverings in public amid the Covid virus scare.

Evangelical Church Supports President Trump
9-18-20, ChristianityToday -- The 500-plus crowd at this week’s Evangelicals for Trump rally included local politicians, GOP organizers, and even an unannounced visit by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp all support the re-election of President Trump. They were veterans, retired couples, bikers, college students and home school moms. Despite the white evangelical turnout for Trump before, it wasn’t quite like this last time. Pastor Chuck Allen said:
“I believe most evangelicals—most pastors for certain—four years ago probably voted against Hillary Clinton. Four years later, many if not most are voting for Donald Trump. That’s a significant difference.”

At the same time, they blindly defend and promote poor decrepit Joe Biden, who cannot successfully read a teleprompter any longer, let alone discuss policy, any policy.

Joe Biden Should Face Five Scandal Investigations Not the Presidency - 5-15-20, PJMedia
5. Ukraine - If Joe Biden thinks being president will put him in the clear over his quid pro quo with Ukraine, he’s got another think coming.
We know, Biden’s son Hunter got a lucrative board position at Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, despite having zero relevant experience, “earning” over $80,000 a month for four years while the company sought to exploit their Biden connection.
When Burisma Holdings was being investigated by Ukraine’s then-Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, Biden [on camera] bragged that he threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid to Ukraine (which is illegal) unless they fired Shokin.
We have video of Biden bragging about his quid pro quo--implicating Barack Obama in the scandal as well.
3-2-20, WashExam -- 2020 Democrat Joe Biden presidential hopeful stumbled over his words as he attempted to recite the Declaration of Independence ahead of Super Tuesday. He said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident all men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.” During the stop, he also accidentally referred to Super Tuesday as "Super Thursday" before correcting himself.
The Declaration of Independence reads: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
DailySignal -- Democrats have argued there is little difference between universal mail-in voting and absentee voting – as they both involve the same fundamental process of casting a ballot using the mail. Not true ...
Absentee voting involves an American citizen who obtains a form requesting a mail in ballot, fills that form SIGNS IT sends it to the state. The state sends the voter a ballot and the voter returns the ballot with his or her signed affidavit. Then THE SIGNATURE ON FILE IS COMPARED TO THE SIGNATURE ON THE BALLOT.
Universal mail in voting ballots are mailed to everyone on the rolls, no request needed, no signature and no confirmation of legitimacy of who actually sent in the ballot.

USA Blaspheming, Disobedience Murder & Homosexuality?
Thou shall do no murder; man shall not lay with man like with a woman.
9-18-20, All through the USA born again Christians are praying for healing in the nation. We are praying for Covid virus to be gone, violence to stop and the country to be united under President Trump for four more years. We see strange weather anomalies with extreme heat and flooding. Wildfires are rampant and anarchists are causing havoc and destruction in our cities.
Will God honor our prayers for the USA when she has legalized murdering babies in and out of the womb, legalized homosexual marriage and daily blaspheme His holy name without remorse? God hasn't been shy about punishing bad behavior and disobedience - look at Uzzah.
If the holy and righteous Creator of all mankind punished: [short list]
Why do we believe God won’t punish the USA for her wickedness? Jesus said to repent and obey Him. [Luke 13:3; John 14:23]
We will physically GO TO THE POLLS not trusting the mail … yet ... because of the nation's sin … I believe God's strong delusion is in effect [2 Thessalonians 2:10-12] and Joe & Kamala will enter the Oval Office; I hope I'm wrong.
Even so, please come Lord Jesus.
