By Martin Fisher, CAN News Correspondent.  The Southern Poverty Law Center has once again come under fire, along “Amazon Smile,” for its anti-Christian targeting, this time by a prominent Christian legal scholar whose organization he said was slandered.

Mike Farris of the Alliance Defending Freedom joins other Christian organization leaders who are calling out the SPLC as a far-left partisan group that uses slander against organizations they disagree with.

 Of particular concern to Farris is the “Amazon Smiles” charity program that dropped the ADF from their list of beneficiaries. The program allows Amazon shoppers to share 0.5-percent of qualified purchases to listed organizations.

 Amazon based its rejection of the Christian legal group on information obtained through the SPLC “hate map,” which claims to locate proven hate groups across America.

The ADF is not the first to be booted from the Amazon Smiles program based on the SPLC "hate map."

The SPLC is currently being sued by the D. James Kennedy Ministries, which suffered a similar fate after it was dropped from the “Amazon Smiles” program.

 The "hate map" was also the cause of a violent act in 2012, when Floyd Corkins shot a security guard at the headquarters of the Family Research Council after finding their name on the SPLC "hate map." Corkins was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

 In a May 3 letter obtained by Christian Action Network, Farris noted, “Although the SPLC did good work many years ago, it has devolved into a far-left propaganda machine that slanders organizations with which it disagrees and destroys the possibility of civil discourse in the process.”

“Once the SPLC identifies an ideological opponent, its goal is to ruin them,” Farris added.

 Christian Action Network President Martin Mawyer agreed with Farris’ assessment, saying, “It absolutely is slander. It is a political attack strategy using a so-called 'hate map' that is disguised as a non-partisan, unbiased community service to locate dangerous hate groups.”

 Mawyer added that with many organizations of outstanding Christian testimony on that list because of a bold stand for Biblical truth, there is a silver lining to the fact that CAN is also in the same SPLC cross-hairs as DJK Ministries, the FRC and the ADF.

“It is important to remember that they are intentionally distorting information in order to slander all of God’s people who are boldly standing for Biblical truth,” Mawyer added.

 Farris quoted SPLC Senior Fellow Mark Potoki as saying, “Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate crimes . . . I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.”

Good morning Kristi,

 I can understand more of the why Steve asked me to help, as a MOD. I would under one condition, I would help this site and this is how it will be. I would be a Administrator, directly under Steve and Dee, no others would have any say so of what I do.

 The use of the D word you keep editing, under Christian Faith, is not violating any TPCC Rules at all. You see Steve had to know I am not Jewish, so why would he ask a bimbo blond like me to help? Its because there are hundreds of Christians here at this site, they do not post blogs because some with their Jewish values do what is being done to the point they do not even post a comment any more.

 Dee is correct, this site is dying, and I can understand why Dee feels that way &, not so long ago, she stated we were shi*ing up this site. Ok fine, I am not Jewish, I do not hold the same perspectives in Faith, Christian Values and Jewish Faith does not work out so well in the same Church, Two different people, Sorry but this is true. So, fact the D word used in a Christian Formatted forum does not violate TPCC Rules. I will contact Steve over this issue.

And by the way I did let Steve know dad would make a very good site Administrator.

I will reply to you tomorrow!! I am going to bed now!! God Bless all my Sisters and Brothers in Christ Jesus-Yeshua and Your Families and Friends!!

Love Always and Shalom ( Peace ), YSIC \o/

You are correct Mrs. Morgan, you did not violate any rules as long as it is withing Religion.

 The Talmud has several writings, it is clearly stated within "Talmud- The Da****d" research this.

 

Thank you Tom,

 I did ask Steve who is the boss here, about this, so, thank you.

Who is a Jew... according to Scripture:

"28  A man is not a Jew because he is one outwardly, nor is circumcision only outward and physical. 29No, a man is a Jew because he is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise does not come from men, but from God.…" (Ro 2: 28-29)

"Circumcise yourselves to the LORD And remove the foreskins of your heart, Men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, Or else My wrath will go forth like fire And burn with none to quench it, Because of the evil of your deeds." (Jer 4:4)

"Behold, the days are coming," declares the LORD, "that I will punish all who are circumcised and yet uncircumcised..." (Jer 9:25)

"It is not as though God's word has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel." (Ro 9:26)

For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh... A true Jew is one who is circumcised inwardly by the Spirit of God... He is a new creation made not after the outward appearance of the FLESH but born again of the Spirit of Life in Christ.

Know who you are... ye are not flesh and blood alone... ye are a new creation, if ye are born again of the Spirit of Life... your flesh is not your own... it is the purchase of God in Christ ... ye are the son's and daughters of Christ... flesh of His Flesh and bone of His Bone.

That is the revelation that the Angels desire to look into... but cannot.  As they are not the sons and daughters of God.  Be ye transformed, by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove/do... the good, acceptable and perfect will of God. ( See: Ro. 12:1-2)  We must reexamine how we look at life, our flesh and this temporal world must be transformed; too, acknowledge who we are now.  We are born-again creations, the living, breathing, Body of Christ, in the Earth... by faith thru the Grace of God new creations. 

In Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile... but one Body, one faith, one Lord of us All... We are the family of God... Jew and Gentile alike... being transformed by the Word of God, thru faith, and by Grace... too, become ONE Body... even as God is One.

Christ-MESSIAH Jesus-Yeshua was a Devout Jewish MESSIAH and RABBI ( Teacher  ) HE is KING of kings and LORD ( ADONAI ) of lords, HE is the ALPHA and OMEGA, HE is PRESIDENT of presidents, HE is the BEGINNING and the ENDING!!

Glory Glory Hallelujah and Maranatha EVERYONE!!

Love Always, YSIC \o/

That is sweet Kristi Ann, nice real nice, I myself i am dying in anticipation of the reply.
LOL Hank...:)-

The Press is part and parcel, joined at the hip, with the SPLC... The SPLC has morphed into a HATE GROUP on its own accord... hating anything American, Capitalist, or Christian.  Stop shopping with Amazon and use other online services that do not engage in political activism... Amazon is rapidly becoming an agent of extreme left-wing politics. 

 Yes, Mr. Nelson,

 This is a hate group, and as you well know it is Government Funded.

Good morning Kristi,

 I was just doing some thinking. You know,  its not my fault I was not born Jewish, and its not my fault that the political system is the way it is.

 My husband is Jewish.......oh my god!!!, this means My Children are Tribal Jewish Red Necks.

 Its the End of the World As We Know It.

Tif...

Behold all things old become new... When we are born again the natural order and relationships we had in this world are transformed... we become new creations, no longer identified by the flesh and the temporal order of this world... we become one ... in Christ with God.  One faith, one baptism, one with the Body of Christ... our Lord and God.

If your children are Christian... their true identity is no longer defined by the flesh... it is defined by the Spirit of God in whom we have our life and being.  Read all of Romans Chapter 8. The Law no longer holds us captive... we no longer serve the flesh but live in Christ by the SPirit of Life we fulfill the Law of God in the Spirit... for the law is spiritual and cannot be served or fulfilled by the flesh.  See: (Romans 7: 22-25)

ALERT ALERT

FBI Text Should Alarm Every American

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you.

Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges.

It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers of their office to “stop” Trumpfrom becoming president. The only question is whether any official acts they took in the Russia collusion probe were driven by those sentiments.

The Justice Department’s inspector general is endeavoring to answer that question.

For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read.

That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. “There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted.

The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign.

Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign.

This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses.

The admission is deeply consequential. It means Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome powers of a special counsel to investigate an allegation that the key FBI officials, driving the investigation for 10 months beforehand, did not think was “there.”

By the time of the text and Mueller’s appointment, the FBI’s best counterintelligence agents had had plenty of time to dig. They knowingly used a dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign — which contained uncorroborated allegations — to persuade the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to issue a warrant to monitor Trump campaign adviser Carter Page (no relation to Lisa Page).

They sat on Carter Page’s phones and emails for nearly six months without getting evidence that would warrant prosecuting him. The evidence they had gathered was deemed so weak that their boss, then-FBI Director James Comey, was forced to admit to Congress after being fired by Trump that the core allegation remained substantially uncorroborated.

In other words, they had a big nothing burger. And, based on that empty-calorie dish, Rosenstein authorized the buffet menu of a special prosecutor that has cost America millions of dollars and months of political strife.

The work product Strzok created to justify the collusion probe now has been shown to be inferior: A Clinton-hired contractor produced multiple documents accusing Trump of wrongdoing during the election; each was routed to the FBI through a different source or was used to seed news articles with similar allegations that further built an uncorroborated public narrative of Trump-Russia collusion. Most troubling, the FBI relied on at least one of those news stories to justify the FISA warrant against Carter Page.

That sort of multifaceted allegation machine, which can be traced back to a single source, is known in spy craft as “circular intelligence reporting,” and it’s the sort of bad product that professional spooks are trained to spot and reject.

But Team Strzok kept pushing it through the system, causing a major escalation of a probe for which, by his own words, he knew had “no big there there.”

The answer as to why a pro such as Strzok would take such action has become clearer, at least to congressional investigators. That clarity comes from the context of the other emails and text messages that surrounded the May 19, 2017, declaration.

It turns out that what Strzok and Lisa Page were really doing that day was debating whether they should stay with the FBI and try to rise through the ranks to the level of an assistant director (AD) or join Mueller’s special counsel team.

“Who gives a f*ck, one more AD like [redacted] or whoever?” Strzok wrote, weighing the merits of promotion, before apparently suggesting what would be a more attractive role: “An investigation leading to impeachment?”

Lisa Page apparently realized the conversation had gone too far and tried to reel it in. “We should stop having this conversation here,” she texted back, adding later it was important to examine “the different realistic outcomes of this case.”

A few minutes later Strzok texted his own handicap of the Russia evidence: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”

So the FBI agents who helped drive the Russia collusion narrative — as well as Rosenstein’s decision to appoint Mueller — apparently knew all along that the evidence was going to lead to “nothing” and, yet, they proceeded because they thought there was still a possibility of impeachment.

Impeachment is a political outcome. The only logical conclusion, then, that congressional investigators can make is that political bias led these agents to press an investigation forward to achieve the political outcome of impeachment, even though their professional training told them it had “no big there there.”

And that, by definition, is political bias in action.

How concerned you are by this conduct is almost certainly affected by your love or hatred for Trump. But put yourself for a second in the hot seat of an investigation by the same FBI cast of characters: You are under investigation for a crime the agents don’t think occurred, but the investigation still advances because the desired outcome is to get you fired from your job.

TEA PARTY TARGET

 Trump Poised To Take
 Control Of The Federal Reserve 

  • The Fed doesn’t stabilize markets and money — it does the opposite
  • President Trump sharply criticized the Federal Reserve this week, saying interest rate increases are hurting the economy.
  • Trump will have the opportunity to fashion the central bank in the image he would like as he has four vacancies to fill on the board of governors.
  • The result could be a more politicized Fed.

President Donald Trump has multiple reasons as to why he should take control of the Federal Reserve. He will do so both because he can and because his broader policies argue that he should do so. The president is anti-overregulating American industry. The Fed is a leader in pushing stringent regulation on the nation. By raising interest rates and stopping the growth in the money supply it stands in the way of further growth in the American economy.

First, He Can

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve is required to have seven members. It has three. Two of the current governors were put into their position by President Trump. Two more have been nominated by the president and are awaiting confirmation by the Senate. After these two are put on the Fed’s board, the president will then nominate two more to follow them. In essence, it is possible that six of the seven Board members will be put in place by Trump.

The Federal Open Market Committee has 12 members and sets the nation’s monetary policy. Seven of the 12 are the members of the Board of Governors. Five additional are Federal Reserve district bank presidents. Other than the head of the Fed bank in New York, who was nominated by the president, the other four can only take their positions as district bank presidents if the board in Washington agrees to their hiring. One of these, the Fed Bank president in Minneapolis, Neel Kashkari, is already arguing for no further rate increases.

Second, Regulation

Following the passage of the Dodd Frank Act in July 2010, the Fed was given enormous power to regulate the banking industry. It moved quickly to implement a number of new rules. The Fed set up a system that would penalize banks that failed to obey its new rules. These rules included setting limits as to how big an individual bank could be; how much money the banks had to invest in fed funds and Treasurys as a percent of their assets; which loans were desirable and which were not; where the banks had to obtain their funding and many, many, more up to and including how much a bank could pay its investors in dividends.

These rules have meaningfully slowed bank investments in the economy (the Volcker Rule) and they have had a crippling effect on bank lending in the housing markets (other agencies have had an impact here also).

Thus, of all of the government agencies the Fed has been possibly the most restrictive. The president has already moved to correct these excesses by putting in place a new Fed Governor (Randal Quarles) to regulate the banking industry.

Three, Killing Economic Growth

In the second quarter of 2018, the growth in non-seasonally adjusted money supply (M2) has been zero. That’s right, the money supply did not grow at all. This is because the Fed is shrinking its balance sheet ultimately by $50 billion per month. In addition, the Fed has raised interest rates seven times since Q4 2015. Supposedly there are five more rate increases coming.

This is the tightest monetary policy since Paul Volcker headed the institution in the mid-1980s. It will be recalled his policies led to back-to-back recessions. Current Fed monetary policy is directly in conflict with the president’s economic goals.

Moreover, the Treasury is estimating it will pay $415 billion in interest on the federal debt in this fiscal year. A better estimate might be $450 billion if rates keep going up. There are a lot of bridges and tunnels and jobs that could be created with this money.

Then there is inflation. It is likely to rise if the Fed eases its policies. If that happens paying down the federal debt becomes easier. On a less desirable note, higher interest rates lower real estate values. Lower rates that stimulate inflation increase real estate values.

Bottom Line

The president can and will take control of the Fed. It may be recalled when the law was written creating the Federal Reserve the secretary of the Treasury was designated as the head of the Federal Reserve. We are going to return to that era. Like it or not the Fed is about to be politicized.
