KEITH ELLISON ADMITS CALLING GIRLFRIEND A ‘B****’ FOR SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY

No Justice in the Land. DEMZ literally get away with murder!

image from wordforlifesays.files.wordpress.comMinnesota Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison called his ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan a “bitch” over a fight about money, he admitted to an attorney his own party hired to investigate domestic abuse allegations against him.

“Mr. Ellison recalled only one time in 2013 where he called Ms. Monahan a ‘bitch’ following an argument over purchasing something that he thought was too expensive,” Minnesota attorney Susan Ellingstad wrote in a draft report.

While Ellison told Ellingstad that he only called Monahan a “bitch” the one time, Monahan said the congressman called her the derogatory term on multiple occasions.

One of those times, Monahan claimed, was while Ellison was dragging her from a bed and yelling expletives at her. Ellingstad’s investigation focused on that single specific incident, which it concluded was unsubstantiated.       MORE


The Feast of Tabernacles-Day 5

By COGwriter

image from ih1.redbubble.netThe ''Feast of Tabernacles'' is an 8-day Biblical pilgrimage festival, also known as the ''Feast of Booths,' the '''Feast of Tabernacles," or ''Tabernacles." In the 7th day Church of God groups it is one of the most important holy days as it lasts the longest and normally requires a great deal of preparation and travel to be able to attend. But it is normally the physical and spiritual highlight of the year for those that do observe it.

This article covers this subject from a Christian perspective and includes quotes from both the Old and New Testament.

The Hebrew Scriptures

The Hebrew scriptures discuss this Festival in many places.

Leviticus 23:33-43 states:

33 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 34 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. 35 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. 36 For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it. 37 'These are the feasts of the Lord which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a sacrifice and drink offerings, everything on its day — 38 besides the Sabbaths of the Lord, besides your gifts, besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill offerings which you give to the Lord. 39 'Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days; on the first day there shall be a sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a sabbath-rest. 40 And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. 41 You shall keep it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.'" (NKJV throughout, unless otherwise noted)

Christians have interpreted the statement about dwelling in booths to include temporary dwellings, hence most stay in hotels, motels, or tents to observe it today (and the idea that palm branch dwellings are not the only option is consistent with Leviticus 23:43). And the observe it on the same days that the Jews celebrate Sukkot (which is based on the same verses in the Hebrew Bible).

NO END IN SIGHT FOR SURGING OIL PRICES AS EXPECTATIONS OF $100 A BARREL RISE

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comThe global and U.S. benchmarks for the price of oil are up more than 20 percent in 2018, stoking talk that the price of oil could hit $100 a barrel for the first time since 2015, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Brent crude, the global benchmark, has risen for five straight quarters after hitting $82.72 at the end of 2018’s third quarter. West Texas Intermediate (WTI), the U.S. benchmark, slipped slightly — 1.2 percent — from a multiyear high to $73.25 last quarter. Brent has increased 24 percent and WTI has risen 21 percent in 2018.

Oil prices have been pushed upward by production cuts by the international oil cartel OPEC, U.S. sanctions on Iran that will fall on Nov. 4 and a troubled Venezuelan oil industry.

“When you have a geopolitical risk backdrop like this, it just fuels bullish market sentiment,” Barclays head of energy commodities research Michael Cohen told WSJ. “The fundamentals of the market are tightening before some had expected.”   READ MORE


PFIZER CEO STEPS DOWN AS GENERIC ALTERNATIVES SHAKE THE MASSIVE DRUG COMPANY

  image from www.bing.comPfizer Inc. CEO Ian Read will entrust his position to COO Albert Bourla on Jan. 1, 2019, but Read will remain as executive chairman of Pfizer’s board of directors after a tenure during which the company’s stock increased roughly 160 percent.

“The company has come out of the abyss it was in, and is really poised for growth,” Read, 65, told The Wall Street Journal. “Given my age, it’s time for me to move on.”

Read became the giant drug company’s CEO in 2010. The “abyss” he refers to could be drug patent loss: Read’s leadership helped Pfizer continue to innovate as it lost revenue when the patents for its products like cholesterol medication Lipitor ran out, reported TheWSJ.

Read’s replacement Bourla has been in charge of Pfizer’s “vaccines, oncology and consumer health care business,” reported the Chicago Sun-Times.

 

The Prophetic Significance of the Feast of Tabernacles DAY 4

To understand the Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles you have to first understand what the church calls the transfiguration. Because it is impossible to fully realize the importance of the Feast of Tabernacles to all believers in Yeshua if you don't keep Sukkot in the full context of Scripture. We read about the Transfiguration in Matthew 17. In these few verses we read about one of the most amazing events in the New Testament as Yeshua, Peter, John and Jacob are together on top of a mountain. What makes this event so powerful is that within the written text itself we get to experience both the temporal world where John, Peter and Jacob lived; the eternal world where Moses and Elijah are; and the reality that Yeshua was and is still living in both worlds at the same time. The scene described allowed humanity if only for a few moments to see not only into both worlds, but we were able to have a glimpse into the reality that both worlds intersect. The eternal and the temporal are not separate but connected in a way that we cannot fully grasp. But through Yeshua drawing back the curtain for a brief time, the disciples as well as all who reads their words were able to see the unique joining of the two realms; one inside of time and the other without time.

In Ephesians 1:9-10, we find a powerful verse of Scripture in the middle of a whole section of powerful verses. Because of its location in the text, these words often become blended into the text, and the statement made gets someone lost in to the reader.

"making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Himself, as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Christ, which are in heaven and on earth" (Eph. 1:9-10).

Feast of Tabernacles Day 3 - Was Christ Born during the Feast?

Birth of Christ & Feast of Tabernacle

The Word became flesh and tabernacled among us . John 1:14

image from 2.bp.blogspot.comMany scholars believe Jesus was born during the Feast of Tabernacles.The Hebrew word “stable” is called a sukkoth (Gen. 33:17).

In John 1:14, the word “dwelled” is literally “tabernacled” in the Greek – and this comes as the climax to John’s “version” of the story of Christ’s incarnation.

Feast of Tabernacles is a week-long fall festival commemorating the 40-year journey of the Israelites in the wilderness. The word Sukkot means “booths.”

Was the Birth of Christ during the Feast of Tabernacles?

To the Israelites the Feast of Tabernacles depicted their forty years of wandering in the wilderness before entering the Promised Land. Peter and Paul referred to our physical bodies as tabernacles, or temporary dwellings (II Corinthians 5:1-4, II Peter 2:13-14).

Matthew Henry states:

It is supposed by many that our blessed Saviour was born much about the time of this holiday[Feast of Tabernacles]; then He left his mansions of light above to tabernacle among us (John 1:14), and he dwelt in booths. And the worship of God under the New Testament is prophesied of under the notion of keeping the feast of tabernacles, Zec.14:16.

The gospel of Christ teaches us to dwell in tabernacles, to sit loose to this world, as those that have here no continuing city, but by faith, and hope and holy contempt of present things, to go out to Christ without the camp, Heb. 13:13, 14.

Trump boasts new trade deal between U.S., Canada and Mexico is 'historic'

Donald Trump sent his congratulations to Mexico and Canada on Monday morning, boasting about the 11th-hour reformulation of the Clinton-era NAFTA trade pact as the United States Mexico Canada Agreement.

Late last night, our deadline, we reached a wonderful new Trade Deal with Canada, to be added into the deal already reached with Mexico. The new name will be The United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA,' the president wrote in a pair of tweets. 

'It is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our Farmers and Manufacturers, reduces Trade Barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world. The USMCA is a historic transaction!'

The three North American nations agreed Sunday night to replace the North America Free Trade Agreement following a year of agonizing negotiations.

President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly reached a deal on a revised North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) late Sunday evening, according to officials briefed on the negotiations. The leaders are pictured together in June

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A number of experts have spoken out against the HPV vaccine since its release. An eight-month investigation revealed shocking flaws in Merck’s clinical trial design, which effectively prevented assessment of safety
  • Many of the side effects experienced during the vaccine trial were simply recorded as “medical history,” and were not treated as adverse events; serious adverse events arising outside of a two-week period post-vaccination were marked down as “medical history”
  • More than 80 million girls, young women and boys have received the HPV vaccine, and many have paid an extraordinarily high price, coming down with nervous system disorders, chronic fatigue and autoimmune diseases
  • According to Merck’s own research, if you have been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior and then get vaccinated, you may increase your risk of precancerous lesions by 44.6 percent
  • HPV infection is spread through sexual contact and research has demonstrated that using condoms can reduce risk of HPV infection by 70 percent, which is far more effective than the HPV vaccine
