Friday, Federal prosecutors, armed with the results of the Special Counsel investigation of possible Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election, said that President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen deserved up to five years in prison. The connection, however, to Trump colluding with Russia to influence the election is a stretch. Cohen faces the prison term because he allegedly paid hush money to a former Playboy Playmate and a porn star who claim affairs with Trump. Cohen also is accused of trying to broker a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump that would have "phenomenal" political and business implications. Still no smoking gun despite political and media spins.
The prosecutors are saying that Cohan's payments of some $280,000 to the women were tantamount to illegal corporate campaign contributions to Trump because they were made to benefit the campaign by buying the women's silence. Cohen also lied about the timing of a Trump Tower business deal with Russia-a deal that never materialized. Cohen also is accused of monetizing his "Russian" connections to the tune of some $4 million through his consulting business prosecutors described as just one part of a decades-long career marked by deception and greed. Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal criminal charges. The extent that Trump is connected to these doings will determine whether the President faces criminal charges. Trump claims these revelations actually clear him of wrongdoing. 
How is this different than the sordid actions of those who initially brought these accusations to the public? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton  did a deal to send nuclear grade uranium to Russia scoring $145 million to the Clinton Foundation. Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow. Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta did a $35 million energy deal with Russia, and the Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, head of Russia's uranium company. In October 2017, the FBI released information indicating both the Clinton's and the immediate past "president" were involved in a bribery/kickback scheme with Russian officials in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. They also used falsified documents to convince the secret FISA Court to allow spying on Trump's campaign.
If the American taxpayer is going to foot the bill for millions of dollars in investigations, then why not investigate all the dark shenanigans that have been going on? Doesn't the citizenry have a right to know the self-enriching crooked deals that all these politicians are doing at not only taxpayer expense, but also at the expense of national security and the general welfare of the country? Proverbs 26:26 says, "[He] Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shown before the whole congregation." The American people cast their votes based on what they see and hear. How many would be repulsed and demand righteousness if those evil things done in darkness were exposed to the light?

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
