News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
Stuck between a wall and hard heads
NOTEWhen writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

What is a leader supposed to do when detractors happen to be more interested in destroying you personally than doing what they were hired to do? Such is the case with the President. There is story after story about how the loyal "resistance," the coup-makers, are wanting Donald Trump's income tax returns and to continue a needless investigation into a phantom collusion scandal costing taxpayers millions. Meanwhile, the invasion of the United States at its southern border with Mexico continues because the coup-makers refuse to work with the President on securing America's borders. This is insurrection and seditious because it is putting all Americans at risk from crime, disease and more. 
Neo-communist New York state legislators are slated to introduce a bill allowing the New York Department of Taxation and Finance to release any state tax return requested by leaders of the US House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, and the Joint House-Senate Committee on Taxation. The New York Times reports that the bill's sponsor, State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), says it is "a safety valve for any attempt by the White House to block the Congress from doing this at the federal level." These people are more interested in obstructing government and personal vendettas than they are in doing what is best for the nation. 
Meanwhile, the President is cleaning house in the Department of Homeland Security and Citizen and Immigration Services in an attempt to get stricter administrative control over border security. Yet, everything he does is frustrated by Democratic Party coup-makers in the courts and Congress. Trump has diminishing options to deal with the border crisis because of government insiders, court challenges, immigration laws, and Congressional democrats. For example, AP reports Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said, "The purge of senior leadership at the Department of Homeland Security is unprecedented and a threat to our national security." Feinstein is doing what most of the coup-makers do all the time: point out the obvious without admitting any responsibility for causing the problem.
The "resistance" blames Trump for a lack of leadership in enforcing border security, yet they use their positions to block building a wall and every other possible solution to the problem. Meantime, they focus their attention on Trump's personal taxes, promoting legislation that nationalizes elections, weakens voter identification laws, requires  mandatory automatic voter registration, same-day voter registration, no-fault absentee balloting and early voting, as well as forcing taxpayer subsidization of political campaigns, and regulating political speech-all designed to foment a socialist takeover of America.  So the President is stuck between a wall and hard heads. Let us be mindful of Romans 12:21, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Either we engage or be overcome. Even though there is no wall, our backs are against it.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

An Appeal for the Children Suffering in Mozambique

By Pastor William Agbeti

[NOTE: If you choose to support the relief efforts of Pastor William Agbeti for the children impacted by the cyclone in Mozambique, please just note "Mozambique" in your donation notation or on your check. ]

I am weeping right now for the devastation that children in Mozambique are caught up in! I am therefore sending an appeal to readers and supporters  to consider sending immediate help for children in Mozambique affected by cyclone Idai. 

Below is the plea for help:

Everyone might have by now heard of the devastation caused by cyclone Idai in Mozambique. Several 100s are dead and rendered homeless. Whole communities, including children, women and the elderly are without food and essential needs like water.Children are dying as a result and the nation has declared a s tate of emergency. 
Nearby Ghana, children in Mozambique are suffering from the impact of a cyclone that is predicted to have claimed over 1,000 lives

The hardest thing to bear is that all these things are happening right in our backyard. 

We hear the cries and pleas for help and cannot close our eyes and stop our ears to them.In the wake of all this, we cannot remain silent because the cries for help have become loudest of late.  We are therefore also calling for help in order to help affected children in Mozambique. 

This is our very first attempt at international outreach. 

I plan on leaving for the affected areas in a week, on an emergency errand.  Even if we are able to save a few children from starvation or death, that would be a lot accomplished in the name of the Lord! My plans are to stay for a week only in Mozambique, and distribute essential commodities and medications recommended by doctors in Ghana, with documented approval. 

My budget is $5000, including travel costs and essential items. Close to $4000 of this amount will go directly to help the children! Please extend a helping hand! I will be sending direct reports from the field, should conditions permit. Please send help now! 

God richly bless you for allowing Him to touch and turn your hearts towards children in Mozambique.

NOTE: In case we are unable to raise the target amount, the entire funds raised will be sent to the Mozambique consulate in Ghana, with specific instructions to help children with it!
