News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
The deceitful web of election meddling

The Departments of Justice and Homeland Security Tuesday issued a joint statement saying the results of their classified joint study on the 2018 midterm election concluded there was no foreign interference on the election and political/campaign infrastructure. The statement said, " Although the specific conclusions within the joint report must remain classified, the Departments have concluded there is no evidence to date that any identified activities of a foreign government or foreign agent had a material impact on the integrity or security of election infrastructure or political/campaign infrastructure used in the 2018 midterm elections for the United States Congress." This means that Russia did not alter the election infrastructure.
The statement also indicated: "Throughout the 2018 midterm election cycle, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security worked closely with federal, state, local, and private sector partners, including all 50 states and more than 1400 local jurisdictions, to support efforts to secure election infrastructure and limit risk posed by foreign interference.  Efforts to safeguard the 2020 elections are already underway." This statement comes in the wake of a February 2018 testimony by Director of National Intelligent Dan Coats before the Senate Intelligence Committee that Russia was poised to use "propaganda, social media, false-flag personas, sympathetic spokespeople and other means of influence to try to exacerbate social and political fissures in the United States."
Despite the Democratic Party's and media's relentless self-generated propaganda that the 2016 Presidential election was somehow rigged by a Donald Trump-Russia conspiracy, the intel agencies (who are also not to be trusted) are certifying that the US election infrastructure was sound. This does not, however, absolve what went into the election infrastructure. Voters are always influenced by what they hear, see and read. Russia used America's limitless freedom of speech to create opportunities to influence and confuse voters, probably no differently than the campaign efforts of the US politicians themselves. Voters cast their votes based on what they surmised on a candidate's positions, likeability or other factors.
The problem with election meddling is the action that occurs inside the voter booth-not the infrastructure. We have documented cases of illegal voting inspired by out-of-date voter rolls, fraudulent registration and other scurrilous actions that suppress voting or fix outcomes. This is where the emphasis should be placed instead of worrying about the Russians, who have been trying to influence US elections for decades. In other words, we are all responsible for how we voted, whether we voted legally, illegally, liberal or conservative or not at all. The entire narrative is a ruse to cover up the dark deeds of the accusers, who have woven an intricate web of deceit. As Christ said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you."

Caring for those even the Church ignores: 
The Disabled in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti

[ NOTE: In addition to our ongoing clean water, feeding, and clothing efforts when you support The Daily Jot, you are helping wipe tears off the faces of suffering mothers and fathers seeking rehabilitation of their disabled children]
UN figures put persons living with disabilities in the world at 20% of the global population. 80% of this number can be found in developing countries. In Ghana alone, there are some 3 million persons living with various forms of disabilities. 
Our Ghana ministry serves where others will not.This two-day residential program for children with disabilities provide food, clothing and recreation

Their plight is demoralizing. Many in the Ghanaian society consider them taboos. Scores of local churches have not opened their doors to them. Several families neglect their disabled children, to fend for themselves. Sadly, some communities go to the extreme to put a newly born disabled child into a mortar and use a pestle to pound it to death, with the belief that their souls will not return to the communities again. In the main, the disabled are ostracized from the society. Only a handful of homes, families and communities treat them with a modicum of respect and acceptance. Read the rest of the story by clicking here
