Who would ever believe that WikiLeaks and their founder Julian Assange, would provide more reliable information and truth than the 17 United States Intelligence Agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Department of Homeland Security? It is NOT the rank and file FBI agents and intelligence personnel who are to blame. It is the heads of their respective agencies who are appointees of President Obama. Their jobs have been politicized. Never forget how FBI Director Jim Comey let Hillary Clinton skate when she should have been indicted!
Now it appears that the stories of the Russian hacking into our 2016 presidential elections may have been exaggerated, falsified, or even totally fabricated. There is no proof whatsoever afforded from our intelligence agencies that the hacking from Russia occurred! Julian Assange and WikiLeaks suggest quite the opposite.
Important Note: Vladimir Putin refused to Personna Non Grata (PNG or expel) American Diplomats in Moscow after President Obama did the same to over thirty Russian Diplomats in Washington, D.C. This is not protocol at all. Nations almost always return the favor when their own diplomats are PNGed. Why is this? I believe that Vladimir Putin interprets Barack Obama as a buffoon, a court jester on the world stage. Putin knows that President Obama is politically motivated, and attempting to undermine Trump’s presidency even before his administration begins. We are living in a strange day when the information provided by WikiLeaks is more trustworthy than that of the FBI! Things will change when President Elect Donald Trump drains the swamp (drains the cesspool?). Trump will appoint men of integrity to lead these great Intelligence Agencies. I am looking forward to the Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2017, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in attendance, and Franklin Graham speaking. Praise the Lord!
Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks in 2006, is permanently living in the embassy of Equador in London, England. His organization has exposed hundreds of thousands of leaks from governments and politicians throughout the world. He is charged with sexual crimes and sought asylum in this embassy, claiming there were no victims to the “crimes,” and that the government in Sweden simply trumped up the charges. Regardless of whether or not the charges are true, WikiLeaks is providing a valuable source of truth in a day of lies and corruption.

From the Desk of Mike HuckabeeDear Friend:Last Friday I substituted for Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel, and invited Franklin Graham, Dr. Robert Jeffress and the American Renewal Project’s David Lane to be my guests.We say every four years, “The is the most important election in our lifetime.” This truly is! If Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Christians do not register and vote on Election Day, the encroachment of transgender bathrooms by the Obama Administration is only the beginning. Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ incarceration last September will be only the warmup act. YOU are next!”A word to my pastor friends: Donald Trump used a term last week at the American Renewal Project’s pastors and pews event in Orlando, in association with the repeal of the Johnson Amendment– “Leverage”. Mr. Trump said the Evangelical pastors influence in the public square had been severely damaged since TX Senator Lyndon Johnson wrote and passed the bill — as a reaction to conservative opposition in his run for reelection in 1954.If Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Believers stay home on November 8, 2016, like we did in 2012 and 2008, we have only ourselves to blame for the collapse of the Biblical-based culture in America. You, His under-shepherds, must lead the way for the spiritual resurrection of America.No one believes, as Chuck Colson said, that the Kingdom of God is going to arrive on Air Force One. But somebody’s values are going to be represented in the public square, and we must engage the culture with men and women of Issachar who “know the times and know what to do.” (1 Chronicles 12:32)Mike Huckabee

Pray For Revival In America!
America has been weighed on the scales and found wanting. And the days of the Republic may be at an end.
This from Franklin Graham, who has a biblical warning for the United States, that Americans could share the fate of the Babylonian empire.
In a recent post on his Facebook page, the son of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham told the story of how the Babylonian king Belshazzar was shown the writing on the wall from God’s hand, telling him his reign was over because he did not honor God.
“What’s the writing on the wall for America? As a nation we are found lacking because of sin and disobedience to God’s Holy Word. We have not honored Him. If we don’t turn back to God, I fear that our end will be near.”
Christian leaders and writers were quick to agree with Graham’s warning.
Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, the bestselling author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” said Graham is echoing some of the themes he has talked about for years.
“Sin leads to judgment,” said Cahn. “This law touches not only individuals, but nations and civilizations. To whom much is given, much is required. A nation that has been especially favored with God’s blessings and the revelation of the Word is much more accountable concerning judgment. This applies to America.”
Cahn claimed America was founded out of the pattern of ancient Israel.
“If America ever turns away from God and His ways, the blessings of God will be removed from the land and the judgments that came up on ancient Israel will come upon America,” he said. Cahn argues that is precisely what is happening with “continuing manifestations of judgment” appearing in our time.
“As I have always said, God is in charge of the timing, but as it is now, America is continuing decisively in its descent to judgment,” he concluded.

Mark Biltz, pastor of El Shaddai Ministries and author of “Blood Moons” and the upcoming “God’s Day Timer: The Believer’s Guide To Divine Appointments,” also argued God is ultimately in control of America’s fate.
“It is said that the one thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history!” he exclaimed. “The last 4,000 years of world history are full of the rise and fall of kingdoms.
“Many had their turns at the helm of history. But immorality, how they treated the Jewish people, or both were always the cause of their demise. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel will bring all the kingdoms of this world in subjection to His leadership. He will put an end not only to America’s dominance but an end to every kingdom as He sets up His rule.”
Several commentators said Christians must avoid the temptation of seeking redemption through secular politics.
Bill Cloud, author of “Esau Rising,” said Christians have a special responsibility to look to God rather than any political leader.
“I know we are in the heat of this political cycle and there are a lot of Christians who think that if we just get the right guy in office then somehow all of our problems will be solved,” said Cloud. “Well, I don’t think that any person, any party or philosophy is going to save the nation. Scripturally, it says that if the land is to be healed, what has to happen is that God’s people have to humble themselves, seek His face, pray, and turn from their wicked ways. And so initially it’s upon the Christians. The responsibility is upon the Christians to turn back to God in repentance and humility and to forsake our sins. Then we see these other things begin to fall in place. Then you’ll see a spiritual renewal take place throughout the nation.”
Last month, Graham made similar comments, saying he had zero hope in the Republican Party and saying he only had faith in God.
Carl Gallups, a pastor, talk show host and author of several books including “Be Thou Prepared,” said America has lost sight of its Christian foundation.
“From the earliest writings of many of our founding fathers to later declarations of presidents, the Supreme Court, and various national officials – the Christian heritage and foundation of our nation’s principles are indisputable,” he told WND. “It is precisely because of our Christian heritage that other religions of the world are free to lawfully exercise their faith – or even to hold no faith at all – without government penalty. It was a brilliant and godly plan. The institution of that plan brought the world the most unique and blessed nation the world has ever known since ancient Israel.
“We have turned so far from those founding principles. Unless America (beginning in its pulpits and pews and thus influencing the halls of government) repents and turns back to our foundation of Godly heritage – we will simply go the way of every other secular and godless empire of ages past.”
Cheryl Chumley, author of “The Devil in DC” and a WND staff writer, said temporal politics do matter. Ultimately, however, she agreed spiritual devotion is more important.
“It’s great that so much interest has been generated among the constituency over this current primary season,” she said. “And it’s great that Republican candidates are rousing conservatives, and particularly evangelicals, from their slumber of the past two presidential races, when many stayed home instead of voting. But we have to remember our nation, based on Judeo-Christian principles, isn’t one where government is the be-all and end-all of fixing what ails. America’s greatness is tied to the realization individual rights come from God, not government.
“Unfortunately, we’ve been mocking the one who’s granted us this great nation – we’ve been living in sin, fooling ourselves into believing things like abortion, adultery, gay marriage, and so forth, are simply changes with the times and those who oppose on religious or Christian grounds ought to just shut up and quit forcing out-of-date morals on the rest of society. Well, they’re not – they’re standards set by God. And the price for failing to uphold God’s standards is removal of His blessings and protections.”
However, though many of the writers and pastors asked agreed with Graham’s comments, Joel Richardson, bestselling author of the “The Islamic Antichrist” and director of the new film “Global Jesus Revolution,” had the most challenging response. He argued Christians need to brutally examine their own conduct, and that of their leaders.
“We are now increasingly hearing various American preachers claim that if the United States as a whole does not turn back to God, we are doomed as a nation,” said Richardson. “Such comments however, while having elements of truth, do little to help our current situation. First of all, every nation throughout the earth is going to face the judgment of the Lord. The universal Day of Reckoning is looming for every nation – and for every person. As Christians however, our primary duty is to first repent ourselves, and then to call other believers to obedience to Jesus.
“How can we expect unbelievers to repent of their sins and idols, when we ourselves are not even living in obedience to Jesus? How can we as the American church for example, ask unbelievers to forsake their idols when we as a community celebrate pastors who live in ten million dollar homes with three elevators?
“Do I think judgment is coming? Yes, absolutely. The Day of the Lord is inescapable. Who can stand on that day? But we must remember that as the Scriptures state, judgment begins in the house of God. Personally I am seeking to repent myself, and then to very solemnly call other believers to repent and get back to actually following Jesus as the early believers did. When we as a community truly do this, then revival will come to this nation.”

I thought this was an excellent article and agree with the spiritual precepts entirely. I do not agree with Jonathan Cahn’s assessment that the United States of America is a nation that was founded like Israel. No other nation was ever founded like Israel. Also, Cahn suggests that Franklin Graham is echoing him about America and judgment. Hardly. Actually, Franklin Graham is the better Bible expositor because unlike Cahn, he does not read more into the Bible than is there. Furthermore, any mature Christian with a minimal amount of discernment can perceive that America is under judgment- hardly a novel idea. Bill Cloud commented that only God and NOT a man can bring blessings to our nation. What he did not mention, however, is that the Lord can work through a man in order to accomplish this. The Lord worked through all of the good kings of Judah. Hezekiah and Josiah were used by God to bring revival to Israel. America obviously needs to repent. We have quoted II Chronicles 7:14 for a generation but have yet to obey the spiritual mandate of repentance. Blessings, Pastor Steve
Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly interviewed Franklin Graham in reference to Rob Bell’s heresy. Rob Bell does not believe hell is real or that homosexuality is a sinful life style. The conversation however, shifted to the doctrine of salvation. Franklin Graham correctly asserted that only faith in Jesus Christ’s atoning work can save anyone. O Reilly’s Irish Catholic background and worldly “logic” countered Graham’s Biblical truth, and Franklin Graham would not back down one inch. O’Reilly attempted to take over and steer their discussion towards his own mindset but the Lord had a hold of Franklin Graham and the Lord had His way! This is why I like Franklin Graham. Watch and listen to it play out. May you and I have this kind of love, boldness and unction when our opportunity to shine presents itself:
Correction on the article below: On December 23, Fox News stated that Franklin Graham left the Republican Party and would run for president himself as an Independent. Only one half of this is true. He left the Republican Party but is not running for president himself. He is not yet endorsing any particular candidate. He has a year long campaign in 2016 called the “Decision America Tour,” whereby he is encouraging all Americans to pray and vote. He will be traveling from capital to capital in all fifty states, starting with Des Moines, Iowa on January 5, 2016.
Franklin Graham will start his campaign as he goes on the road in January. If this is the case, it will be the first time in quite awhile that I will NOT have to vote for the better of two evils; I can vote with a clear conscience. Imagine, Graham could start a powerful base from within the Republicans, Democrats, Independents and minority ethnic groups.
Following are a couple of quotations from Franklin Graham’s Facebook page yesterday, that obviously tells volumes about his mindset and decision:
“I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America…”
“Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble.”
“Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps!”
The Republican Party, of course, compromised with the Democratic Party, as Paul Ryan (Speaker of the House) helped pass a bill last week that would exonerate Planned Parenthood from their barbaric debauchery. Planned Parenthood received one half a billion dollars in this government bill! This was the tipping point for Franklin Graham. Planned Parenthood is the biggest baby killer in the United States.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, placed their organization in black neighborhoods, and we all know what her desire was.
Note: Franklin Graham already had plans to visit and evangelize all fifty states in our nation with the Gospel in 2016. Perhaps he is homogenizing this with announcing his candidacy as an independent write in candidate for the presidency.
My thoughts: Franklin Graham does not want to run for president, yet like many of us, he has no confidence in any part of our political system. It is ALL corrupt. I believe Graham’s running for the oval office can be linked with a famous statement by Edmund Burke: “All it takes for evil to prevail is for a few good men to do nothing.” This is the year of the outsider, because our populace does not like what they see in Washington, D.C., pure and simple. If Franklin Graham only receives ten votes, I will be one of them. Donald Trump will have trouble finding dirt on this man of God. Like Ted Cruze, Franklin Graham will refuse to disparage his opponents, and set his sights on the topics at hand. This will be interesting, and if Christians bathe it in prayer and God blesses, who knows what could happen. “With God, all things are possible.” Jesus Christ Pastor Steve

Franklin Graham blasts Obama for ‘gay marriage’ ruling
Rev. Franklin Graham couldn’t disagree more with President Barack Obama’s declaration of Friday’s Supreme Court ruling as being a “victory for America,” contending the commander-in-chief will be judged for leading the nation’s moral defeat.
Friday’s landmark decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to legalize same-sex ‘marriage’ on a national scale spurred Billy Graham’s son to reflect on the president’s tireless pursuit to make homosexual behavior mainstream in America, asserting that he will be held responsible for leading the country on its sinful course.
“God will judge him and us as a nation if we don’t repent,” the younger Graham posted on his Facebook page.
Change is indeed upon us …
Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), then agreed with a proclamation Obama made at a White House Gay Pride event shortly before the ruling.
“’There has been an incredible shift in attitudes across the country,’” Graham quoted Obama, noting that he was categorically right, before clarifying that the shift was nothing to celebrate. “But it is definitely not a shift for the good of America.”
The North Carolina-based Christian leader explained that the changes taking place in America are indicative of its falling away from God, which will invoke its demise as a nation.
“The shift in attitudes he refers to is the moral decline we are seeing manifest daily around us,” Graham wrote, referring to Americans’ growing proclivity to embrace a Leftist immoral agenda — rather than stand by God’s moral code.
He noted that Americans are now not only tolerating behaviors declared as sin in the Bible — they are celebrating them, while encouraging those who have led the revolt against biblical morality to keep up the “good” fight for “equality.”
“Accepting wrong as right — accepting sin as something to be proud of — yes, that’s definitely a shift,” Graham stressed.
The world-renowned American evangelist then repeated Obama’s earlier declaration of thanks to the LGBT community for transforming the moral fabric of the U.S.
“A lot of what we’ve accomplished over these last six and a half years has been because of you,” Obama told homosexual activists who have been successfully lobbying the White House to enforce their agenda nationwide.
Billy Graham’s son went on to remark that the president’s gratitude and attribution given to the sexual libertine movement is anything but a shocker.
“Should we be surprised that he thanked the LGBT community for all that they had helped him accomplish during his time as president?” he rhetorically asked.
While championing his administration’s ongoing effort to forward the LGBT agenda, Obama touted the fact he raised the number of states that legalized same-sex marriage from two when he was inaugurated as president in 2009 to 37 just before Friday’s SCOTUS decision to legalize it nationwide. Graham concluded that this accomplishment the president boasted about will ultimately result in disaster for all Americans in one shape or form.
“The President is leading this nation on a sinful course, and God will judge him and us as a nation if we don’t repent,” the leader of BGEA warned.
Championing liberty … or rationalizing sin?
SCOTUS Justice Anthony M. Kennedy declared the reasoning behind the 5-to-4 decision, claiming that a right to homosexual marriage is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Kennedy wrote, representing the majority’s ruling. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
Agreeing with Kennedy, Obama argued that the decision was nothing less than a monumental win for a new “civil rights movement.”
“[The decision is a] victory for America,” Obama announced. “When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free.”
Ignoring the writing on the wall next door
Back in 2005, neighboring Canada started federally mandating same-sex marriage — one year after Massachusetts became the first state in the U.S. to legalize the controversial union in 2004. Warning about the changes that would take place north of the border beginning in 2005, Graham predicted that the freedom of speech, religion and press would decline on a grand scale, alerting America that the same would be experienced if it took the same path.
Recently, the global evangelist updated America about the federally enforced persecution Canadians now face for holding to their family values rooted in the Bible concerning “gay” marriage.
“[In Canada] if you say or write anything questioning same-sex marriage, you could face discipline, termination of employment or prosecution by the government!” Graham recently expressed on his Facebook page before the SCOTUS ruling, according to the Christian Post. “We need to realize that if our Supreme Court makes same-sex marriage the law in the United States, we will be in the same boat.”
The outspoken evangelical leader then warned that America will soon embark into a new era of diminishing liberties that should be protected by the Constitution, particularly when it comes to religious expression concerning same-sex marriage and family values.
“Will the next step be to ban us from speaking God’s truth from His Word about this issue?” Graham asked.
Only when PP is taken to court
Winnable war: Major companies reject Planned Parenthood
It’s obvious that Planned Parenthood has now become toxic in corporate America. The new scarlet letters in the business world are “PP.”
Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman—Almighty God—and His decisions are not subject to review or revision by any manmade court. God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).
I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.
Yes, I believe this is the case. The Bible always says it best: Proverbs 14:34 King James Version (KJV) “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” The Bible explains in the prophetical books (Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc.) that God judges all nations through their response to His commandments. Because of her sins, Israel was judged by the sword, drought, famine and pestilence. The prophet Joel emphasized how the Lord used a plague of locusts to judge Israel. The land of Egypt was judged by the Lord through ten plagues. No nation is exempt from the Lord’s judgment.
Which brings to mind our nation today. I find our president’s recent speeches on our “problem” of global warming to recent college graduates amusing. For one thing, there are a plethora of issues that should have much greater priority. For another thing, HE may be the cause of some of the changes in our weather. During his six plus years in office, he has sanctioned transgender teachings for our children in the public school system, ratified “gay marriage” across the nation, thrown our Middle East ally of Israel and their prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu under the bus (For this despicable act, Genesis 12:3 makes me cringe), attacked the freedoms of innumerable Christian institutions and businesses across our country (examples are the right of Christian hospitals to not endorse or perform abortions, and the rights of Hobby Lobby not to sell contraceptives), all the while placing Muslim Brotherhood personnel in influential positions throughout the government. President Obama has invited illegal immigrants to stay, and to add insult to injury, gives them additional benefits from our tax dollars. He gives them priority over those who want to immigrate to America legally! He allowed our diplomats in Benghazi, Libya to be brutally murdered and he has treated our war veterans awfully. His agenda bypasses the constitution in everything he does. In the last several years who has noticed the extreme drought in California, the extra powerful tornados that strike out of season, or the widespread flooding that is happening as I write this? On yesterday’s news, I saw tennis ball sized hail in the Chicago area. I spent the first twenty years of my life there and never experienced or heard of such a thing. Mainstream Christians like Anne Graham Lotz, Franklin Graham and James Dobson warn America of soon coming judgment. Yes indeed, ironically our administration could account for changes in weather patterns as they continue to take this nation off course, and continuously rebel against the Lord and every value that made this country great.

Note: Global warming has been a political football for the last twenty years, and scientists are recently observing great fallacies within this theory. Global warming has been endorsed by the United Nations and globalists, who are quick to blame it on man made carbon emissions (CO2), with the United States labeled as the chief culprit. Politicians, the government, our schools and our so called intelligentsia have all brainwashed the masses with this theory. The idea behind all of this was to tax anyone who contributes to carbon emissions. Now, after years of research, scientist and former NASA advisor John Casey has written a best selling book named “Dark Winter.” The premier truth taught in the book is that it is solar cycles and NOT carbon emissions that are responsible for global weather changes. The warming effect actually ended in 2000 and we are now in a cooling cycle as is evidenced by the weather. Much to the chagrin of global warming theorists, the oceans are not rising and the poles are not melting as predicted. The opposite effect is occurring, as ice sheets are expanding in Antarctica and in the artic as well. Winters have been extremely severe in recent years. This solar trend will continue for about thirty years to come.
