CNN Lawsuit’s Version of Jim Acosta Incident Is Fake News

by Ronn Blitzer | 12:08 pm, November 13th, 2018

CNN and reporter Jim Acosta filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, claiming that the White House violated his constitutional rights by suspending his press access following an incident where Acosta would not relinquish the microphone during a press conference. The White House’s characterization of the events of last Wednesday have been ripped apart as an exaggeration complete with altered video footage, but the account put forth in CNN’s complaint is even more detached from reality.

Let’s break this down as it happened. And for the record, I’m going by video of the incident that CNN themselves broadcast.

First, Trump called on Acosta. That much, CNN agrees with, but that seems to be about it.

FROM THE COMPLAINT:

Acosta asked a question about one of President Trump’s statements during the midterm campaign—namely, whether a caravan making its way to the United States from Central America constitutes “an invasion” of the country, a significant feature of the President’s messaging during the just-ended campaign.

THIS IS FALSE.

Acosta did not simply ask a question. He made a statement, saying, “I want to challenge you on one of the statements you made in the tail end of the campaign, in the midterms.” He then cited Trump’s characterization of a migrant caravan as an invasion. He proceeded to lecture the president by saying, “As you know, Mr. President, the caravan was not an invasion, it’s a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the U.S.” Finally, Acosta asked, “Why did you characterize it as such?” and “Do you think that you demonized immigrants in this election?”

According to CNN’s lawsuit, “The President declined to respond, instead remarking: ‘You know what? I think you should . . . I think you should let me run the country. You run CNN. And if you did it well, your ratings would be much better.’” It then says, “When Acosta attempted to ask a follow-up question, President Trump refused to take it.”

THIS IS NONSENSE.

Trump did respond to Acosta. Regarding the characterization of the caravan as an invasion, Trump simply said, “Because I consider it an invasion, you and I have a difference of opinion.” Regarding demonizing immigrants, Trump said, “Not at all. No, not at all. I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally. You know they have to come in, Jim, through a process. I want it to be a process. And I want people to come in and we need the people.”

Acosta then tried to interject, but Trump cut him off because he wasn’t done responding.

“Wait, wait, wait,” Trump said. “You know why we need the people, don’t you? Because we have hundreds of companies moving in. We need the people.”

The back and forth continued for a bit, with Trump responding to Acosta regarding a campaign ad. It wasn’t until Acosta again brought up Trump’s characterization of the caravan as an invasion–which Trump had already addressed–that Trump cut him off and made comments about CNN. Trump then said, “That’s enough.”

Then the lawsuit gets to the part where a female White House staffer went over to take the microphone away from Acosta, who wouldn’t comply with the president’s instructions.

Here’s what CNN’s lawsuit says happened:

A White House staffer then approached Acosta and attempted to grab the microphone. The staffer reached all the way across Acosta’s body, successfully latched onto the microphone, and physically attempted to remove it from Acosta’s right hand. Acosta held onto the microphone, stated “Pardon me, ma’am,” and continued to ask his question.

First off, the staffer did not reach all the way across Acosta’s body until after she had repeatedly attempted to take it from his left side. When Acosta twice jerked his right arm away, keeping the microphone out of her reach, she then went across to try and take it. Again, this is after the president of the United States told Acosta to stop and he kept talking anyway.

THE LAWSUIT ALSO CONVENIENTLY OMITS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

When the woman finally did manage to grasp the microphone–or as CNN disgustingly said, “latched onto” it–Acosta did not merely hold onto the microphone. He brought his arm down, making contact with the woman as he continued to try and maintain control of the microphone. When she did not let go, he then looked straight at her before saying, “Pardon me, ma’am.”

Now, Acosta did not place his hands on her, as the White House alleged, and he certainly did not assault her, as some have claimed. He did, however, actively try to keep a White House staffer from taking away the microphone as he continued talking, even after the president told him his time was up.

WITH ALL THIS, CNN HAS THE NERVE TO CLAIM:

“The content and viewpoint of CNN’s and Acosta’s reporting on the Trump administration—not his interaction with the staffer at the November 7 press conference—were the real reason the White House indefinitely revoked his press credentials.”

THIS IS ABSURD! 

If CNN and Acosta’s reporting were the real reasons, Trump wouldn’t have called on him to ask a question in the first place. CNN can make legal arguments that the White House acted improperly in how they went about suspending Acosta’s access, but let’s not be ridiculous when it comes to why. Certainly, the White House did not do themselves any favours by focusing solely on Acosta’s interaction with the female staffer instead of the incident as a whole, but facts are facts.

JIM ACOSTA ACTED INAPPROPRIATELY: I don’t blame CNN for standing by their reporter, but this version of the story only supports Trump’s claims that they’re “fake news.” END.

CNN are | “fake news.”

Britain’s Grooming Gangs: Part 1

• As far back as 2013, Britain’s Attorney General stated in the House of Lords that 27 police forces were then investigating no fewer than 54 alleged gangs involved in child sexual grooming.

• Last year, Shahid Javed Burki, a former Pakistani finance minister and vice-president of the World Bank, spoke out about the treatment of women in his country, arguing that the low status given to women has had serious social, demographic, educational, and financial effects.

• This problem is, in some measure, reflected in the UK, where Muslim women (mainly of Pakistani origin) face limitations on their participation in the workplace, in higher education, and even knowledge of the English language — matters examined by Dame Louise Casey in her 2016 government review into opportunity and integration.

• Bringing Pakistani attitudes into the UK, often within segregated communities, only serves to perpetuate the belief that women are intrinsically the inferiors of men in all respects.

On July 24, 2018, Britain’s Home Secretary, conservative MP Sajid Javid, issued orders for research into the ethnic origins of the country’s many sexual grooming gangs that had involved large numbers of loosely-termed “Asian men”, who, over many years, had taken vulnerable young white British girls to use or pass on for sexual purposes. Most of the men have, Javid has stated been of Pakistani extraction, which makes the Home Secretary’s intervention significant. Javid’s father came, as did many other Pakistani immigrants, from Punjab, and with only £1 to his name. He became a bus driver, then a clothing store owner. Yet his five sons have all become fully integrated Britons, with successful careers in business, politics and the public sector. They are all models of second-generation immigrant achievement, miles away from the men in the gangs. Reporting on the Javid family, The Times wrote:

“Javid’s appointment as the first non-white person — and the first with a Muslim background — to hold one of Britain’s great offices of state is the culmination of a six-decade family journey.”

Given the great potential for controversy over identifying ethnicity as a factor in serious crimes, Javid showed courage in taking this move only months after his appointment in April to lead the Home Office. Criticism came quickly from the Labour Party. “Jeremy Corbyn denied there was any ‘problem’ with Pakistani men and abuse, saying: ‘The problem is the crime that’s committed against women from any community.” His combined political and ethnic experience will have shown Javid, based on previous Home Office bans and academic reports, that any such investigation might be used by the far right to attack Pakistanis and Muslims.

Crossing party lines, Javid made his commitment to investigate the ethnic origins in a letter to Sarah Champion, the Labour Member of Parliament for Rotherham, the first city to experience grooming gangs on a large scale, and the site of the UK’s largest ever child sexual abuse scandal. Just under a year before, Champion had come under fire for daring to draw public attention to the problem of the preponderance of Pakistanis in the gangs.

First elected to parliament in 2012, Champion, in 2015, served as the Shadow Minister for Preventing Abuse. She was awarded the post in recognition of her work on child sexual exploitation, notably by chairing a cross-party inquiry into child sexual exploitation. The inquiry was done in conjunction with the children’s charity Barnardo’s, which published a report in April 2014. Unfortunately, Champion had to resign briefly in 2016, when a number of MPs stood down in an attempt to remove Jeremy Corbyn. She was appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities in October 2016, a role for which she was well suited. In November, she launched a National Action Plan (Dare2Care) to prevent child abuse and violence in teenage relationships.

Then things went wrong. She remains an MP, but was forced to resign her shadow cabinet post nearly a year later, on August 16, 2017, after a major controversy. During an interview with BBC Radio 4, on August 10, she said, about a major grooming gang which had just been convicted in Newcastle upon Tyne:

All the towns where these cases have gone on, the majority of the perpetrators have been British Pakistanis…. One of the things that, for example, on the news last night, there was a picture of eighteen of the people who were convicted, that seventeen of those were clearly Asian men. And it just pains me that this is going on time and time and time again, and the government aren’t researching – you know – what is going on. Are these cultural issues, some sort of message going out inside the [Pakistani] community? We have got now hundreds of men, Pakistani men, who have been convicted of this crime. Why are we not commissioning research on what’s going on, and how we need to check and how we need to change what’s going on?

On the same day, the less respectable tabloid newspaper, The Sunpublished an article by Champion saying much the same. Entitled, “British Pakistani men ARE raping and exploiting white girls and it’s time we faced up to it”, the article argued in part:

For too long we have ignored the race of these abusers and, worse, tried to cover it up.
 

No more. These people are predators and the common denominator is their ethnic heritage.
 

We have to have grown-up conversations, however unpalatable, or in six months’ time we will be having this same scenario all over again.
 

The irony of all of this is that, by not dealing with the ethnicity of the abusers as a fact, political correctness has actually made the situation about race.

Although Champion subsequently tried to distance herself from the article, it had done her no favours in the Labour Party, which has stressed its opposition to racism — except against Jews. A cross-party group of MPs wrote to The Sun, condemning the article. Even though Champion had courageously stated that, “The perpetrators are criminals and we need to deal with them as such, not shy away from doing the right thing by fearing being called a racist”, she was forced to resign on August 16.

Ironically, another Labour MP, Naz Shah, herself of Pakistani origin, tried to deflect Champion’s comments by stating, no doubt correctly, that nearly 90% of child abusers (presumably in the UK) are white men. She added, “What I won’t accept, or tolerate, is a narrative that demonizes every Pakistani man as a rapist.” But, of course, Champion had not been talking about child abuse in general in a mainly white country, only about the specifics of the grooming gang situation, previously unheard of in Britain; nor had she claimed for a moment that all Pakistani men were rapists. Not surprisingly, Shah herself (who had just been suspended in an antisemitism dispute, but then reinstated) was appointed in July this year to be the Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, the very post Champion had held.

Champion, meanwhile, after death threats, had to be given increased security by the counter-terrorism police. So-called human rights activists, evidently caring nothing for the rights of little girls and teenagers in the North of England or presumably elsewhere, accused her of “industrial-scale racism.”

Champion, incidentally, was not the first to draw attention to the crimes and the perpetrators. Another MP, Ann Cryer, had revealed details about grooming gangs in her Yorkshire constituency, Keighly, as far back as 2003. When she did so, she was “ridiculed, branded a racist, a liar and a fantasist [and] forced to install a panic button in her own home.”

Champion’s reputation was saved at an early stage by other MPs. Barry Sheerman, Labour MP for Huddersfield, a town where twenty-eight men of mostly Pakistani origin had been tried and sentenced only months earlier for the same offenses, declared that it was a “shameful and disgusting campaign against a courageous and remarkable woman”. Most importantly, it was Sajid Javid, not yet Home Secretary, who spoke out in her defence. He tweeted, “Corbyn wrong to sack Sarah Champion. We need an honest open debate on child sexual exploitation, including racial motivation”. It was an intention he fulfilled virtually as soon as he headed the Home Office.

Although the sexual abuse of children and young teenagers occurs around the world, the grooming gang crisis in the UK, certainly in its wide extent, appears to be unique in the West. As far back as 2013, Britain’s Attorney General, Lord Morris of Aberavon, stated in the House of Lords that 27 police forces were then investigating no fewer than 54 alleged gangs involved in child sexual grooming.

He asked:

“Is it collective amnesia that has blinded us to the underlying circumstances, whereby at least 27 police forces are investigating 54 alleged child grooming gangs?
 

“Why has investigating and prosecuting in so many different parts of the country taken so much time?
 

“Is it the fear of racialism, or is it the fact that many of these vulnerable girls come from care homes?”

Four years later, in August 2017, the Daily Express presented a map showing eight towns and cities where gangs had been active. An inquiry in April had, in fact, already brought 29 men from Huddersfield to court, prior to a January 2018 trial in which all were convicted, thereby making the total nine cities.

On September 15, 2018, what was described as “the most serious example of sex grooming yet to emerge in this country” was made public, following a speech in the House of Lords by Baroness Caroline Cox, a staunch defender of women’s rights within Britain’s Muslim communities. 

The case involved a girl, Sarah, who was abducted by a Muslim gang when 15, held in captivity for twelve years, forced twice into marriage, repeatedly raped, beaten, and made to endure eight abortions. As in other cases, her family’s pleas for help were ignored by the police to whom they had turned. “I know Sarah and her family,” said Baroness Cox. “Every sex grooming case is terrible. But the length and cruelty of her abduction make it the worst I have known.”

Sarah is a single victim, but it is likely that the gang involved will have dealt with more young women taken from the same streets.

In 2017, the English Defence League, which some disparage as racist — to which the EDL responds, “The truth cannot be racist” — published online a list of “Muslim grooming gangs and other rape jihad convictions”. It provides a long, alphabetical list of “170 known completed trials with convictions for rape jihad offences at 68 main locations”. The list may be of intrinsic interest, in that it provides links to news reports about these trials, but it is in reality, highly misleading.1)Another statistical list of the names of all the accused in joint cases, arranged chronologically and with full details of the towns, trials, and convictions may be found here. First of all, there is no evidence that any of the men involved (most often one or two) had the least notion of conducting “rape jihad”, a concept seemingly made up by the EDL.

The behaviour of the grooming gangs differs greatly from the rapes and sexual harassments — often of people above the age of 16, by men in general in Britain and in other countries — in its clannish and organized nature. Pakistanis seem almost unique in combining efforts to engage in this harassment. That is why Javid’s inquiry must proceed even if it does upset parts of the Pakistani and wider communities — given that large numbers of those community members are themselves keen to see the matter cleared up and their reputations restored. These include other prominent British Muslims such as Yasmin Alibhai BrownMohammed Shafiq, and Nazir Afzal.

Although Javid’s inquiry will focus on the question of why it is Pakistani men who organize and dominate these gangs, it is important that this not be interpreted as a racist endeavour, as some have claimed it to be — for example, when Sarah Champion was accused of “industrial scale racism”. No one is claiming that the racial characteristics of the rapists are remotely a factor in their crimes, and no one should criticize the inquiry on such grounds.

The problem, then, seems to stem not from race but from culture. Many people, trapped by the inquiry’s emphasis on multiculturalism, appear to deem it “racist” to comment negatively on any culture except for Western (including Israeli) culture. For some, it is even racist to borrow from another culture’s dress, food, religion, architecture, art or music – which they term “cultural appropriation” or “cultural voyeurism” — instead of what it might well be: admiration and respect.

The men in the grooming gangs are not proper representatives of many regular aspects of Pakistani culture and Muslim ethics. According to Ben Sixsmith:

“Quite apart from being abusively adulterous, these criminals drank, did drugs, and made their victims have abortions. These were not, in other words, devout Muslim men.”

Speaking on the BBC’s leading political debate show, Newsnight, Muhbeen Hussain, the founder of British Muslim Youth went so far as to deny that the men convicted were real Muslims:

These grooming gangs were individuals that were using alcohol, using drugs and actually having ‘sessions’ exploiting these young girls. I don’t know what’s Islamic about drinking alcohol, drugs and exploiting young girls.

Despite rising secularism in some cities, Pakistan remains a deeply religious society in which outward expressions of piety are ubiquitous, and blasphemy and heterodox allegiance are major social issues. So, the question comes to be: to what extent might some Pakistani values influence men like these?

A partial answer is that, despite tight regulations concerning the behaviour of women in Pakistan and restrictions on male-female relationships there, the country, like some other Muslim countries, has a reputation for a high level of sexual harassment, even if this harassment does not take the form of grooming underage girls. Pakistani social activist Muhammad Usman Awan, for instance, has written at length about various forms of harassment in Pakistan.

In one 2016 article, he writes:

According to a research conducted by UNISON in 2008, more than 50% working women face sexual harassment in Pakistan. An increasing number of violence cases are filed every day and there is an even bigger number of incidents which go unreported. A total of 24119 of violence against women cases were reported during 2008-10 among which only 520 workplace harassment cases were filed…
 

7,733 cases of violence against women were reported in the media in 2013. 1,516 were murdered while 472 were killed for reasons of ‘honor’. The country has notoriously failed to curb the flow of harassment cases.

Clearly, there is a predominance of physical violence here, but there are other forms of harassment, including the sexual harassment of women when they use public transport:

The condition of public transport in Pakistan is not even close to a satisfactory level. Daily commute for an average Pakistani woman is through public transport buses. But commuting through these public buses has become considerably difficult because of the unwanted attention and indecent remarks.

Harassment is especially experienced, it seems, in the workplace, as Pakistani journalist Nosheen Abbas has described in some detail. The bill on the harassment of women in the workplace that she writes about became an Act of Parliament in 2010, but has yet to make much of an impact. In a lengthy and detailed article in Dawn, published in May 2018, Nazish Brohi writes that things have improved since the 2010 law was passed, but that severe problems remain, particularly for women making complaints of harassment.

Last year, Shahid Javed Burki, a former Pakistani finance minister and vice-president of the World Bank, spoke out about the treatment of women in his country, arguing that the low status given to women has had serious social, demographic, educational, and financial effects. He compares it to neighbouring Bangladesh, which, he said, has improved women’s lot considerably, especially through their engagement in the workforce:

“The main factor accounting for women’s higher social status in Bangladeshi society is the rate of female participation in the labour force which, at 43.1 per cent, is almost double of Pakistan’s 24.3 per cent.”

This problem is, in some measure, reflected in the UK, where Muslim women (mainly of Pakistani origin) face limitations on their participation in the workplace, in higher education, and even knowledge of the English language — matters examined by Dame Louise Casey in her 2016 government review into opportunity and integration. Bringing Pakistani attitudes into the UK, often within segregated communities, only serves to perpetuate the belief that women are intrinsically the inferiors of men in all respects. Once women as such are demeaned to this extent, some men may come to regard sexual mistreatment of non-Muslim women as their God-given right. It is important to note that all of the women treated in this way are Muslims.

One justification used for the UK grooming cases is that the girls involved are non-Muslims who may, as supposed inferiors, be attacked with impunity. Many victims of foreign rapists report that they have kept repeating that rape is permitted in the Quran.

In addition, a female professor from al-Azhar, has claimed that Allah allows “Muslims to rape non-Muslim women to ‘humiliate’ them.”

The second part of this article will examine the roles played by an absence of integration combined with conservative or radical religious attitudes, as well as the Arab practice of taharrush jama’i (mass harassment), both of which may well be keys to why this abuse is happening in the first place.

Brett Kavanaugh and “the final days culture of society”

DUTCH SHEETS’ WINDOW ON THE KAVANAUGH HEARINGS
and why god’s people need to pray now; ‘America’s destiny and the cause of Christ is at stake!’

Dutch Sheets : Sep 24, 2018 : DutchSheets.org

I (Dutch Sheets) believe [Kavanaugh] is an Honorable man and a competent judge. More importantly, I am 1000% certain that neither guilt nor innocence can ever be proven in this case. I am also certain that, in such a situation, it is completely inappropriate for a person’s reputation, family, and career to be destroyed.

This unacceptable treatment of him contradicts every tenet of law and justice America was built on. And the manner in which this accusation has been handled by the left makes clear that their actions are nothing but a Democrat smear campaign.

Please pray against these attacks and for evil to be exposed; pray also for Judge Kavanaugh’s family and for his confirmation. The vote for whether or not to confirm him will probably take place the middle of this week.

Prophetic intercessor, author and speaker, Dutch Sheets sent the following call to prayer after sitting-in on the hearings for Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh:

A CALL TO PRAYER

“But you need to be aware that in the final days the culture of society will become extremely fierce and difficult for the people of God. People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right.

They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly. They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander.

Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit.

They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God.

They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power. Stay away from people like these!” 

(2 Timothy 3:1-5, The Passion Translation)

The Kavanaugh Hearings

WELCOME TO MUCH OF TODAY’S AMERICA:

A generation of Americans has given itself to erroneous and destructive beliefs: anti-biblical thinking; humanism (humans are their own god); secularism (the view that education and civil policy should be conducted without a religious element); and death (abortion).

As a result, we are now ruled by the spirit that produced these beliefs.

The reality of this was on full display at the confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. I was there, along with 50-60 other intercessors, to pray for God’s will to be accomplished.

The level of deceit, lies, slander, and arrogant pride was shocking, displayed not only by the protesters, but also by opposing Senators.

I left DC with several significant thoughts, which I believe are worth sharing.

First, the level of spiritual warfare was extraordinary.

Never have I been more convinced that a war of historical proportions is underway for the soul of our nation, a war that will have worldwide implications. Like Israel, America’s role on the earth is extremely significant. Israel was chosen to bring forth the Messiah, the Savior of the world; America was chosen to be the foremost messenger of this “good news.” Understanding this, there is little wonder that such an intense spiritual war for our destiny is occurring.

At the Kavanaugh hearings, I was also amazed by the level of viciousness coming from “the left.”

Some of them seem to have lost all decency—their liberal agenda is all that matters. This segment of America’s leaders is determined to maintain control over our nation—truth, honor, integrity, civility, morality, and the lives of babies be damned.

As our opening passage states, they have “become addicted to hateful and malicious slander … ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right … with brutal treachery…” Do not be deceived, they despise what we stand for and will not relent in their opposition.

To these elitists, we really are “deplorables.” And I assure you, this war is winner take all.

Thirdly, the emphasis on abortion coming from those on the left was enlightening.

I expected the subject to come up, but it became obvious early on that this issue was their paramount concern. Overwhelmingly so. The right to abort babies was mentioned or alluded to by the Democrats ten to one over any other subject.

It is unfathomable to me that we have come to a point in America’s history where the number one goal and concern of half her leadership—and perhaps half of her population—is the right to abort babies. Sadly, however, it has come to this. Clearly, this is demonic. The resulting bloodshed of 60 million innocent babies has caused our land to become defiled.

This, in turn, has allowed a spirit of violence and death to rule over us (refer to Psalm 106:38; Isaiah 59:7).

Though this is America’s true condition, it does not have to be the final word.

A turnaround has begun and if the praying Church continues its appeal to Heaven, the Lord, who delights in mercy, will save us (Micah 7:18-19). I believe America is about to experience the greatest revival and restoration in her history … again, if we continue to pray.

One of the keys to this restoration, however, is the transformation of our judicial branch of government.

The left knows this, which is why their vicious and unprincipled attack of Justice Kavanaugh is unrelenting. These efforts are an attempt to delay the confirmation vote until after the mid-terms, in hopes that through these elections, they will regain control of Congress.

This would allow them to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination indefinitely, as well as any other pro-life, constitutionalist nominee President Trump would appoint.

If this scenario occurs, they have threatened to continue this delay for as long as two years, in hopes that in 2020 a pro-choice president could be elected, allowing them to maintain control of the Supreme Court.

Regarding the recent allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.

No compassionate person would ever belittle the pain and trauma of a person who has suffered a sexual assault.

But whatever occurred to his accuser, I don’t believe it was perpetuated by Judge Kavanaugh.

I believe he is an Honorable man and a competent judge.

More importantly, I am 1000% certain that neither guilt nor innocence can ever be proven in this case. I am also certain that, in such a situation, it is completely inappropriate for a person’s reputation, family, and career to be destroyed.

This unacceptable treatment of him contradicts every tenet of law and justice America was built on. And the manner in which this accusation has been handled by the left makes clear that their actions are nothing but a Democrat smear campaign.

Please pray against these attacks and for evil to be exposed; pray also for Judge Kavanaugh’s family and for his confirmation.

We should be offensive in our prayers, not just defensive and reactionary.

The vote for whether or not to confirm him will probably take place the middle of this week.

Also, ask God to give us the breakthrough in the Supreme Court we have been requesting for decades—a majority of Justices who are Constitutionalists, literalists (meaning they believe the Constitution is to be taken literally, exactly as it is written) and who are pro-life. Let’s also boldly ask Him for another vacancy on the Court soon—I feel strongly in my spirit another is coming quickly. We should be offensive in our prayers, not just defensive and reactionary.

THE MID-TERMS

Please pray regarding the midterm elections occurring on November 6.

I have never allowed myself to be overtaken by a political spirit; for me, elections are never about Republican or Democrat. They should, at least in part, be decided based on: God’s will and destiny for America; righteousness; life for the babies; morality; and the eternal souls of human beings.

Having said that, however, the Democratic party has strayed far from these ideals. And they actually booed a motion to include God in their platform at the Democratic National convention in 2012.

I pray for their salvation, but I cannot support their current policies.

The great turnaround I mentioned above has truly begun in this nation.

But if the far-left regains control of Congress this will be interrupted. We simply cannot allow this to occur.

Pray for a supernatural, powerful and merciful intervention by God in these elections. I don’t pretend to know what that looks like or how He might do it.

But I know God can do something that would turn the tide. Let’s ask Him to do just that.

Ask Holy Spirit for His mercy to our nation

Pray fervently… faithfully… daily… boldly.

Ask Holy Spirit for His mercy to our nation. Appeal to Him for His assistance to us in our attempt to turn America. Petition Him for the assistance of angels.

Pray that evil will not prevail. Ask Holy Spirit to confuse and thwart the plans of those who oppose Him. Pray for President Trump and other leaders in our nation who are standing for life and for America’s God-given destiny.

President Trump, though imperfect, is doing a good job.

Make no mistake about it, the vile hatred of him by the left is not because of his immoral past. Hollywood—the heroes and partners of those on the left—glorifies immoral lifestyles on a daily basis.

They hate President Trump because he is helping turn around the antichrist agenda they love, and because he is halting their transformation of America into something other than what was intended by God and our Founders.

John Quincy Adams, son of John Adams and America’s 6th president stated, “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” So much for our Founders not wanting God involved in our nation and its government! Contend with me for this reality to be restored and continue into our future.

In our war for America’s recovery, we have come to our Saratoga, our Omaha Beach.

We will either persevere in this battle and, with God’s help, win; or we will grow weary and lose. There is no middle ground. I am convinced that we, the praying Church, will continue to fight and will win.

America’s destiny and the cause of Christ is at stake!

John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. “Record Number of Troops Come to Christ in Missouri”

2,000 soldiers since March 11 coming to faith in Christ Jesus

John 12:32 King James Version (KJV)
32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

A US army chaplain has described what he believes to be somewhat of a “revival” occurring on a military base in Missouri. The number are staggering: over the past six months, nearly 2,000 troops have reportedly come to the Lord.

CHAPLAIN ‘Jose M Rondon’, who is stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, has been posting about the astonishing spiritual awakening on Facebook over the past few weeks, detailing personal testimony and uploading video footage of soldiers worshiping God.

SITREP

“Today, 380 soldiers came to salvation in Christ once and for all,” Rondon wrote in one post.

“Thanks CH Tony Cech for the excellent, clear, and powerful messages during the 3 services.  

Since March 11, 2018, we have seen 1,839 soldiers coming to Christ.

God’s doing an unbelievable work through our military at Fort Leonard Wood, MO.

May God bring the same powerful conviction of sin and love for Him that we are experiencing at Main Post Chapel all throughout our Nation and His world.”

Rondon told the Baptist Press that the key to such astonishing results is being direct and intentional in sharing the gospel.

“To be intentional is to be faithful to Christ and obedient to His Great Commission,” Rondon said. “But we will not succeed in making disciples until the lost make the first step to follow Christ as their Savior. To be intentional not only means to preach Christ’s Word in the chapel, but to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit to share His message of reconciliation if, and when, the time fits.”

Rondon also posted a video showing hundreds of soldiers singing a heart-warming rendition of “Amazing Grace.”

“I’m excited about the future of our military for millions of our Warriors who will sing GOD’s Amazing Grace. Glory to Christ, the only God, Savior, and Lord in this life and the one to come,” he added.

Thank you for your prayers for our Chapel services. 44 Soldiers gave their lives to Christ during the 1100 Chapel Service at Main Post Chapel in Fort Leonard Wood, MO. All glory to Christ, the only Savior and Lord of the World. The total of salvations I have counted since 11 March 2018 is 1,459 Soldiers. Today, 307 Soldiers gave their lives to Christ during our three services. ♥️♥️♥️Tony Cech Matthew Scott Burden Bowlus Fam Rachel Rondon Braxton Minter Bob Ditmer Benjamin Hawkins

Posted by Jose M. Rondon on Sunday, 29 July 2018

TESTIMONIES

Among the scores of soldiers coming to Christ, there are multiple testimonies of lives transformed and hearts turned to Christ.

“I used to have a lot of anger in me,” one soldier, Private Havens, explained in on of Rondon’s testimony posts. “I held grudges against people that have done wrongs against me. And I came here, and I realize that the Lord has forgiven me for my sins and I realize that I needed to do the same to others.”

He added, “I feel a thousand pounds lighter now that I’m able to let go of the burden of this, not hate, but just feeling wronged. And I have forgiven those that have wronged me. I feel better now.”

Rondon said Havens was just one example of the hoards of military personnel who have been coming to Christ in recent months.

“Private Havens is just one of many of the 1,000 and almost 800 soldiers, probably 1,000 by today, we will reach around 2,000 soldiers since March 11 coming to faith in Christ Jesus and growing into their faith as is the case with Private Havens,” he noted.

MISSION

Retired Major General Doug Carver told the Baptist Press that such an unprecedented move of the Holy Spirit is indicative of these troops hungering after a sense of ultimate purpose in their lives, adding that the military men and women were on an insatiable hunt for the truth.

“Our troops, who are increasingly hungry for truth and relevancy in their lives, are finding a faith that works through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ,” he explained.

“God is doing great things,” Rondon said, imploring Christians to keep praying for a continued move of the Holy Spirit in the lives of these brave men and women.

Please Pray And Help Us

“I’m asking you to please pray and help us to see not only today and since March 11th with almost 2,000 people coming to salvation in Christ Jesus, that the Lord is good and he desires not only to reconcile us, to reunite us to himself, through his death, burial and resurrection but also that he desires for the whole world and mainly our country, United States to know that if he’s doing great things in the military, he’s going to keep doing great things, in and throughout us for his glory in our society so in need of Christ Jesus our King.”

Amen!

“The time has come to establish the United States Space Force,” Pence announced in the Pentagon auditorium filled with more than 350 service members and civilians.

Pence compared the creation of the Space Force to the creation of the Air Force at the start of World War II.

“In 1939, at the start of the Second World War, the U.S. Army Air Corps was still a fledgling organization. But as Nazi air forces bombed their way from Warsaw to London, our military commanders took decisive action then to meet that new threat head on,” he said.

“By 1945, the American military had nearly 30 times the number of planes and 85 times the number of pilots and support crews compared to just six years earlier,” he said. “America and our allies emerged victorious from World War II because of the strength of our armed forces and because our armed forces adapted to meet the emerging threats of the day.”

“Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where America’s best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people, to our nation,” he said. “The time has come to establish the United States Space Force.”

In attendance were Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein, and National Guard Bureau Chief Air Force Gen. Sean Lengyel.

Lengyel told Breitbart News it was a “historic day,” but that there was “a lot of work ahead.”

Pence announced the release of a Pentagon report on how to implement the president’s vision. The report calls for the creation of a unified combatant command called U.S. Space Command, an elite Space Operations Force, Department of the Space Force,  and an agency that will field weapons for the new Space Force known as Space Development Agency.

Pence discussed actions China and Russia have taken to militarize the space domain.

“For many years, nations, from Russia and China, to North Korea and Iran have pursued weapons to jam, blind and disable our navigation and communication satellites via electronic attacks from the ground. But recently, our adversaries have been working to bring new weapons of war into space itself,” he said.

“As their actions make clear, our adversaries have transformed space into a war-fighting domain already, and the United States will not shrink from this challenge. Under President Trump’s leadership we will meet it head on,” he said.

“It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space, we must have American dominance in space,” he added.

Trump tweeted after the announcement:

While the Pentagon can take steps to create the Space Force, ultimately Congress has to authorize and fund it. Pence said the White House is building bipartisan support for the plan, working closely with members of the House Armed Services Committee.

The proposal has backing from Reps. Mike Rogers (R-AL) and Jim Cooper (D-TN), the leaders of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee.

“We particularly appreciate Deputy Secretary Shanahan’s leadership on these issues and look forward to the establishment of a much-needed independent Space Force, as called for by President Trump,” they said in a statement.

SLIPPERY SLOPE TO NORMALISATION:
Human Trafficing
Paedophilia
Sexual Slavery
Sadism
Bestiality

Senate Democrats are circulating their plan to take control of the internet.
The plans include mandatory location verification, mandatory identity identification, and disclosure requirements for political speech.

Here is a link to the document.

Reason.com reported:

A leaked memo circulating among Senate Democrats contains a host of bonkers authoritarian proposals for regulating digital platforms, purportedly as a way to get tough on Russian bots and fake news. To save American trust in “our institutions, democracy, free press, and markets,” it suggests, we need unprecedented and undemocratic government intervention into online press and markets, including “comprehensive (GDPR-like) data protection legislation” of the sort enacted in the E.U.

Titled “Potential Policy Proposals for Regulation of Social Media and Technology Firms,” the draft policy paper—penned by Sen. Mark Warner and leaked by an unknown source to Axios—the paper starts out by noting that Russians have long spread disinformation, including when “the Soviets tried to spread ‘fake news’ denigrating Martin Luther King” (here he fails to mention that the Americans in charge at the time did the same). But NOW IT’S DIFFERENT, because technology.

“Today’s tools seem almost built for Russian disinformation techniques,” Warner opines. And the ones to come, he assures us, will be even worse.

Here’S How Warner Is Suggesting We Deal:

Mandatory location verification. The paper suggests forcing social media platforms to authenticate and disclose the geographic origin of all user accounts or posts.

Mandatory identity verification: The paper suggests forcing social media and tech platforms to authenticate user identities and only allow “authentic” accounts (“inauthentic accounts not only pose threats to our democratic process…but undermine the integrity of digital markets”), with “failure to appropriately address inauthentic account activity” punishable as “a violation of both SEC disclosure rules and/or Section 5 of the [Federal Trade Commission] Act.”

Bot labeling: Warner’s paper suggests forcing companies to somehow label bots or be penalized (no word from Warner on how this is remotely feasible)

Define popular tech as “essential facilities.” These would be subject to all sorts of heightened rules and controls, says the paper, offering Google Maps as an example of the kinds of apps or platforms that might count. “The law would not mandate that a dominant provider offer the serve for free,” writes Warner. “Rather, it would be required to offer it on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms” provided by the government.

Other proposals include more disclosure requirements for online political speech, more spending to counter supposed cybersecurity threats, more funding for the Federal Trade Commission, a requirement that companies’ algorithms can be audited by the feds (and this data shared with universities and others), and a requirement of “interoperability between dominant platforms.”

To: Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, LISTEN UP… “NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN!” regards President Trump

President Donald Trump responded to a threat from Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, issued on Sunday, vowing to make the country suffer consequences if threats continue.

“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,”

President Trump wrote in all-caps on Twitter.

“WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

Rouhani delivered his threat during a speech to Iranian diplomats. “Mr. Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” he said, warning that “war with Iran is the mother of all wars.” Rouhani made his remarks in response to reports that the Trump administration was trying to disrupt the current government in Iran.
