President Donald Trump declared Sunday a national day of prayer for Hurricane Harvey victims. The president signed a declaration after he met with several faith leaders and evangelical ministers.
“As response and recovery efforts continue, and as Americans provide much-needed relief to the people of Texas and Louisiana, we are reminded of Scripture’s promise that ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble,’” Trump said in a statement. “Melania and I are grateful to everyone devoting time, effort, and resources to the ongoing response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts.”

President Trump on Sunday will cast the fight against terrorism as a “battle between good and evil” and will tell Muslim countries that it’s up to them to decide what kind of future they want in the Middle East.
In a major speech in Saudi Arabia, the president will reject the idea that the U.S. and its allies are at war with Islam, but he’ll stress that it is Islamic leaders, not Western politicians or diplomats, who are best able to defeat terrorism. Continue reading →
“President Donald Trump leaves for his first foreign trip of his presidency Friday, highlighting three of the world’s biggest religions with visits to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican City. “I’ll meet scores of leader, and honor the holiest sites of these three great religions,” Trump said during a speech on Wednesday, previewing his trip to Coast Guard graduates. …No president has ever visited the homelands of three of the of the world’s great faiths in the same trip before, faiths which are professed by millions of Americans,” a White House official told Breitbart News, pointing out that the president was “very excited” to make the trip.” –Source
“Numerous unconfirmed reports are circulating in the international media that President Donald Trump intends announcing Monday that he will relocate the U.S. embassy to Israel from the coastal city of Tel Aviv to the capital city of Jerusalem. Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital city since its founding in 1948, but most countries have deferred moving the embassy there because the original UN partition plan for the British Mandate proposed Jerusalem as a city under international sovereignty.” –Source
Finally! They actually blurt it out for all to hear in a way that has no hidden meaning wherein the common man can understand! As prophesied, the man of sin in Rome has sought to “plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain” asprophesied in Daniel 11:45. This actually coincides with what students of prophecy have been declaring for literally decades, and the News media have been vindicating our statements since at least the year 2000 when the article titled “‘Jerusalem should be a unified world capital‘” came out that offered us some facts to back the prophecy for those that refuse the trust the Bible without some proof the prophecy is coming true. (But then, that too was prophesied in John 14:29) Continue reading →
(RNS) President-elect Donald Trump’s pick of Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency has increased concerns about science foes in the incoming president’s inner circle.
Pruitt, who is Oklahoma’s attorney general, is a climate-change denier. In the National Review last May, he and co-author Luther Strange wrote, “Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind.”
The vast majority of scientists do not disagree that global warming is linked to mankind’s use of fossil fuels. Pruitt heads a coalition of Republican state attorneys general who are suing the EPA and the Obama administration over its climate change initiatives. Continue reading →
“Three sources from different conservative groups said that Heritage employees have been soliciting, stockpiling and vetting résumés for months with an eye on stacking Trump’s administration with conservative appointees across the government. One source described the efforts as a “shadow transition team” and “an effort to have the right kind of people in there. …Ultimately, Trump won 81 percent of the evangelical vote, a higher percentage than even George W. Bush — himself a devout born-again Christian earned in 2004. Part of the reason the list made such a splash was because Heritage and DeMint are hugely influential in deeply conservative circles, often appearing at the nexus of conservative power structures. …It will be as exciting as the 1930s, greater than the Reagan revolution — conservatives, plus populists, in an economic nationalist movement. And daylight between traditionally conservative policy prescriptions and some of Trump’s campaign rhetoric is especially apparent on the issue of foreign policy.” –Source
As many are aware, Trump attended Jesuit owned and operated Fordham University in the Bronx in his early days. So he has already been well-trained on Vatican politics from day one, and this is besides the fact that most see him as only a narcissistic businessman. But look around.. how many people are allowed to become multibillionaires in this world without first being approached by Rome or at the very least born into a family that is already “on the books?” None that I know of. And so one can expect that after decades of making money hand over fist as well as making deals with all sorts of people the world over, be they trustworthy or not. After seeing how well ecumenical compromise has paid off for him so far, would he at this stage in the game decide not to continue to play ball after seeing how well the game has been? What I mean is, after hearing Pope emeritus Benedict XIV aka Ratzinger proclaim a vote for Democrat means you’re hell-bound, suggests their long groomed man made it into the Oval Office after all. (Click here for the Pope’s letter penned back in 2004 that was pushed into the media the week of the election.)
(RNS) The day after President-elect Donald Trump appointed a man accused of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia as his chief strategist, two of the nation’s largest Jewish and Muslim advocacy groups formed an unprecedented partnership to fight bigotry.
The American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America Monday (Nov. 14) launched the new national group: The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council. Though Jewish and Muslim groups have cooperated before, the size and influence of these two particular groups — and the prominence of the people who have joined the council — marks a milestone in Jewish-Muslim relations.
“Our council is coming at the right time,” said Eftakhar Alam, senior coordinator at ISNA’s Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances. Continue reading →
In an apparent attempt to assuage the fears of LGBT Americans, President-elect Donald Trump told Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes that he has no plans to roll back same-sex marriage rights. Asked by Stahl if he personally supports marriage equality, Trump replied, “It’s irrelevant because it was already settled. It’s law. It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean it’s done.” He went to clarify that even if he were to appoint a judge who opposes marriage equality, the issue has been “settled” and he’s “fine with that.”
“Now, courtesy of a Zero Hedge reader, we have visual confirmation of how a substantial portion of these professional, paid protesters arrive at the site of the protest, in this case Chicago. As our reader notes, “I have a video of 5 city blocks on the West side of Chicago lined with busses from Wisconsin (Badger Bus Lines) bringing in protestors. The Sears tower is visible in the background.”” –Source
It’s amazing how long that line of busses appeared to be. Literally 5 city blocks and they were lined up on both sides. So in essence, 10 city blocks of paid for professional protesters to start riots in each city?! They are doing all they can to disrupt America and further divide the people. They even claim (in this video) that the powers that be can deny Trump the office of the president. But with a Republican house, Senate, and President elect, that’s not very likely. And if you notice in that video, the media is once again hiding truth and isn’t saying anything about the fact that the protests are bought, paid for and staged in those cities. Continue reading →
