    Some interesting articles that are flying under the radar at the moment:

    (JTA) — A senior member of the U.S. delegation for President Donald Trump’s visit to Israel next week reportedly angered Israeli officials when he said the Western Wall was “part of the West Bank.”

    Israel’s Channel 2 reported Monday that the U.S. delegation rejected Israeli requests that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and an Israeli TV crew accompany President Donald Trump on his visit to the Western Wall. The U.S. official then reportedly said, “It is not your territory, it’s part of the West Bank.”

    In a joint press conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri and PLO Executive Committee Chairman Saeb Erekat, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said that east Jerusalem should be the capital of Palestine, while West Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Safadi said that the issue of Jerusalem should be treated with caution. “Everyone is convinced that the president of the United States wants to act effectively for peace. The three of us felt a genuine commitment by Trump to resolve the conflict. “

    “President Abbas told Mr. Greenblatt that under President Trump’s leadership a historic peace deal is possible, and that it will enhance security throughout the region,” the statement said.

    Kind of sounds like a “deal” has already been made with one side.

    Trump’s done next to nothing to show he isn’t a coward without an ounce of Godly political conviction. I’ll never understand why so many evangelicals flocked to him during the primaries. Willfully ignorant.

    John 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

    Hi Barry. I certainly do not have Mr. Trump up on any pedestal. However, with that said, I am curious if you feel like we are better off with him as our President as opposed to Hill?

    Personally, I shudder to think where we might be if that woman was leading our country, and have sincerely thanked God on more than one occasion for His mercy in sparing us that fate. At the same time, I have no illusions of Trump being our Savior. We have only one of those, and His Name is Yeshua. Would be interested to hear your take.

    John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

    I don’t believe that I indicated we’d be better off with Hillary. You must’ve overlooked my mention of primaries.

    Evangelicals – starting in the primaries – flocked to Trump because of “the wall”, and ignored his long history of being pro-abortion, pro-centralized government, pro-high tax, pro-gov’t health care. They conveniently overlooked when he said he was in favor of mentally-ill men using the bathroom with little girls.

    At one time or another, Trump has undeniably embraced everything that Hillary stands for, and from his own mouth, said she’d “make a great president”, and that she was the greatest secretary of state in U.S. history. Christians abandoned Christian values because of Trump’s celebrity, but mostly because of “the wall”.

    John 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

    . No, we didn’t abandon our Christian values. We hoped for Supreme Court nominees in line with Justice Scalia or other pro US Constitutionalists. 🙁

    3rd Watch, at one point Trump floated the idea of his hardcore left sister for scotus. It’s revisionist history for anyone to say primary supporters voted for him because of the supreme court. Pick a Trump position – on almost anything – and you can find a quote from him where he took the opposite position in recent times, sometimes even in the same day. During primary season, none of Trump’s supporters were pro-Trump because of judicial appointments. They walked away from their principles in support of a guy whose big – and really only consistent – issue was building a wall.

    That Trump abandoned his support of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, that he fought not at all to rid the federal budget of planned parenthood trafficking in infant body parts, that he’s already slipped on his promise of border security shouldn’t surprise anyone. His lack of principles has always been evident, and anyone who didn’t see it coming was woefully naive or willfully ignorant of the truth. Evangelicals willfully chose the serial adulterer who held mostly anti-Christian political positions up until the point he decided to run for president over Christian conservatives in the primary.

    Nothing we can do about it now but pray for him. I hope he does a 180. I hope he comes to Christ. But then, I could’ve said the same about Obama or Hillary or anyone else in the WH. But it’s revisionist history to pretend Trump’s primary supporters were about anything other than his phony stance on illegal immigration, and if we see another election before our deliverance, I hope evangelicals aren’t mesmerized by a shiny new toy.

    John 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

    Thank you for your clear-eyed and sincere response, Barry. Yes, we need to continue in prayer for this entire administration, the Supreme Court justices, and that GOD will preserve our Nation until the end of the Church age …. LORD, have Mercy!
