Trump Signs Temporary Funding Bill

Click here to view this newsletter on YouTube

President Trump addressed the nation from the Rose Garden on Friday afternoon, announcing he would sign a temporary order to fund the government until February 15. This puts the 800,000 federal workers back to work for at least three weeks—giving back pay to those who’ve been working without a paycheck, and paying furloughed employees who didn’t work but will still be paid.

Trump stressed the importance of building the wall, for which he has asked $5.7 billion—one-tenth of one percent of the total federal budget. The price tag will cover wall construction, new border security technology, additional judge teams to handle a backlog of immigrant cases, and humanitarian relief.

Before Trump’s announcement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dis-invited Trump from his scheduled January 29th State of the Union address. Then she added that just because the government would reopen soon, it didn’t mean that the SOTU address was “back on.” Traditionally, the President speaks to the country from the House Chambers at the invitation of the Speaker, although there are no rules about where it is given.

After Trump’s address, critics cried out against his decision, calling Trump “cave man” and accusing him of backing down. The President responded, tweeting,

“I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!”

The President can use his executive power to take from the largest budget ever given to the military, $717 billion, to build the wall, using the Army Corps of Engineers.

Why this Matters: The Fake News–who predicted Hillary’s win in a landslide–continues to publish surveys that say Americans want the government open and don’t agree that walls work. If this proves anything, it’s that Fake News media is doing a bang-up job with their propaganda. The Department of Homeland Security has published statistics that prove walls work. In the four areas where a border wall was built twenty years ago, the number of illegals trying to enter dropped 90 percent or more. That means the walls also stopped drugs and guns.

How to Pray: For God to set the President’s path forward. Pray for the women and children who may be deciding to come to the US (80 percent of the women and children are raped en route) that they will have a change of heart and STAY HOME. Pray for God to do what our elected officials cannot seem to do!

More Collusion Theatrics

On Friday morning, a horde of 17 FBI agents descended on the home of Roger Stone, 66, and hauled him off to jail. This was based on an indictment stating he lied seven times while being questioned about Trump-Russia collusion. He is accused of witness tampering, obstruction, and false statements about interactions with Wikileaks.

Stone worked for Trump as a campaign advisor and has been in politics since the Nixon administration. He was later released on $250,000 bond.

Some things to note:

  • CNN was camped outside Stone’s Ft. Lauderdale home when the FBI arrived. No other news organization had been advised of the impending arrest. Is it a coincidence that the former special assistant to FBI Director Josh Campbell is now working at CNN?
  • Page four of the indictment clears Trump of any collusion. It states that Trump campaign officials did not know Wikileaks had stolen DNC emails.
  • The indictment perpetuates the falsehood that Wikileaks “stole” information.
  • Julian Assange, Wikileaks’ founder, specifically said he was given the data by an unnamed source and that this was a person, not a “state actor” such as Russia.
  • Stone is indicted for “process crimes,” which simply means the FBI supposedly caught him telling a story two different ways. Like many of the indictments by Robert Mueller, nothing relates to actual offenses; they simply promote the idea that Trump was elected under suspicious circumstances.

To that further prove the point of the media being the propaganda arm of the Deep State, it was exposed this week that Fusion GPS—the firm that came up with the phony dossier on Trump—was paid paid by Fake News outlets. This is in addition to being paid by the Clinton campaign.

According to a federal law enforcement official, Fusion GPS:

  • Had members of the media on its payroll
  • Employed law firms as well as shell companies to send and receive funds to and from media/reporters
  • Used its accounts at TD Bank to receive funds from media companies and to directly commission reporters to write stories

The official said there are dozens of payments from the media flowing into Fusion’s account, and one company wired funds to Fusion more than a dozen times.

Why this Matters: The danger here is for Americans to never learn the truth–and that those who know the truth simply give up hoping and praying for justice for the real criminals (Hillary, Obama, etc.)

How to Pray: For Americans to stand firmly opposed to corruption. As Jesus said, we are to occupy until He returns–not give up.

Other News:

New York Governor Cuomo signed legislation to extend abortions up to the moment of birth. The new law allows non-physicians to perform the abortions, removes protections for babies who survive an abortion—they can be left to die after birth, and rules the unborn cannot be victims of homicide because a human being is now defined in the law as having been born and is alive. This legislation goes even farther than Roe v. Wade to protect abortion.

Trans Ban Back On – The Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration and is permitting a temporary ban on transgender soldiers. The Court agreed that areas such as readiness, unit cohesion, effectiveness, and lethality are affected when transgenders serve.

Coup in Venezuela – Congressional leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself interim leader of Venezuela, trying to take control from socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro. Guaido is encouraging mass protests and telling supporters to stay the course and protest peacefully should he be arrested.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted that the US recognizes Guaido’s “courageous decision to assume the role of Interim President” per Venezuela’s constitution, and that the Trump administration supports the effort to prepare Venezuela for free and fair elections.

The countries who still support Maduro are China, Iran, Russia, Turkey.

Why this Matters: Venezuela was once was the richest country in South America, but has now become one of the poorest after several socialist regimes. This doesn’t stop the American “Democratic Socialsts” like Bernie Sanders and newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes from trying to bring Socialism/Marxism to the US. They believe that even though this has failed every time it’s tried, if the “right people” are at the helm (them), it will work in America.

Pray, pray, pray for justice for the unborn! Pray that New York will start to feel the spiritual implications of their actions. Thank God for the trans ban, because transgenderism is harmful and costly. Pray for godly people to rule in Venezuela.

Zechariah 4:10 – Do not despise this small beginning, for the eyes of the Lord rejoice to see the work begin.
