Don’t Reward Dirty Cop McCabe – Farrell 
Urges Sessions, Wray To Suspend Retirement
{rickwells.us} ~ Opening the discussion with Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch... Gregg Jarrett asks opines that it seems like the FBI, of all agencies, would want to verify the substance of the dossier before using it to initiate an investigation into the President of  the United States. Farrell agrees, saying, “Failure to do so is criminal negligence on the part of those persons who then advanced the  manufactured dossier to use it as leverage for FISA warrants. He takes the conversation back to the topic of the rumored retirement by Andrew McCabe, saying, “McCabe needs a waiver, according to my understanding, to get to the March retirement date. I don’t think he’s actually eligible to retire until a little bit after that.”...  https://rickwells.us/farrell-suspend-dirty-mccabe/

Abbas orders staff to sever ties 
with US over Trump Jerusalem declaration
by CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS
{jihadwatch.org} ~ The Palestinian Authority’s rift with the U.S. is growing deeper... according to Israeli media outlets. PA President Mahmoud Abbas president has come to see U.S. President Donald Trump as “a lost cause,” according to the Tims of Israel. Abbas is unglued and will not be comforted. Why? because America exercised its right to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in keeping with Jewish history of its land. This naturally does not bode well for Palestinian interests, as their primary goal is to obliterate the Jewish state. The world still has not come to grips with the fact that appeasement of jihadists just does not work. The more they are appeased, the more empowered and emboldened they become. According to a report aired by Channel 2 news, Abbas was “not only closing the door, but throwing away the key” on the chance of any future Palestinian-American relations... https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/12/abbas-orders-staff-to-sever-ties...

RINO-McCain Crony Set To Testify 
On His Involvement With Steele Dossier
{rickwells.us} ~ The noose continues to tighten around the liar-nObama regime... and establishment GOP swamp creatures being implicated in the takeover of the DOJ and FBI and the related attempt to overthrow President Trump. House Intel Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena for a RINO-McCain crony, David J. Kramer, to testify before his committee on January 11th.  Kramer is a former State Department official who revealed last week that he knows the names of the individuals that were the Russian sources for Christopher Steele’s phony Trump dossier. In a December 19th interview with the Intel Committee, Kramer refused to reveal the names of Steele’s sources. It’s unclear if the subpoena will provide sufficient motivation for him to change his tune and divulge the information, but with RINO-McCain now fading quickly into the swamp muck from which he arose, the odds may be improving... https://rickwells.us/mccain-crony-testify-dossier/

The UK's Consequential Embrace of Secularism
by Cal Thomas
{townhall.com} ~ ANGLESEY, Wales -- The UK Daily Mail has again published a story about a subject that has become a recurring theme this time of year. No, not Christmas, but rather drunkenness, though the holiday is used as its primary excuse. Pictures accompanying the story show young people collapsing in gutters and vomiting on the sidewalks. It is not a pretty sight.

More than 100 years after the 1904 Welsh revival and more than 60 years after American evangelist Billy Graham preached at a London Crusade, which lasted 12 weeks, and at its height brought 120,000 people to Wembley Stadium in the rain, registering thousands of converts, the United Kingdom is a spiritual shadow of its former self.

The BBC recently announced its intension to expand religion coverage on the theory that more information about faith might stem growing anti-Semitism and create understanding of various beliefs. Currently only one religion program, "Songs of Praise" is regularly shown on BBC.

The announcement brought a stinging rebuke from London Times columnist David Aaronovitch: "Given that for the first time since the Black Death a majority of Britons are not actually religious, this new emphasis seems perverse."

A considerable amount of mocking follows: "Maybe there'll be a sitcom called 'The End is Nigh,' in which a family of Jehovah's Witnesses moves next door to a family of Seventh Day Adventists and evangelical mayhem ensues. Or the corporation will buy the rights to 'Saudi Arabian Big Brother,' where the all-male housemates compete to see which of them is the most pious. That one really exists, by the way."

Aaronovitch might examine the difference between the cultural influences of past revivals and the British approach to faith today, which has moved from indifference to open hostility in many cases and produced faithless acts, like public drunkenness.

During the Welsh revival and for at least two decades after, drunkenness was cut in half. As the late minister and chronicler of Christian revivals, J. Edwin Orr has written, "The movement went like a tidal wave over Wales, in five months there being a hundred thousand people converted throughout the country."

Here is where secularists must be challenged if they think faith has no role in modern life. Again, Orr paints the picture: "The social impact was astounding. For example, judges were presented with white gloves, not a case to try; no robberies, no burglaries, no rapes, no murders, and no embezzlements, nothing. District councils held emergency meetings to discuss what to do with the police now that they were unemployed. In one place the sergeant of police was sent for and asked, 'What do you do with your time?' He replied, 'Before the revival, we had two main jobs, to prevent crime and to control crowds, as at football games. Since the revival started there is practically no crime. So we just go with the crowds.'

"A councilor asked, 'What does that mean?' The sergeant replied, 'You know where the crowds are. They are packing out the churches.' 'But how does that affect the police?' He was told, 'We have seventeen police in our station, but we have three quartets, and if any church wants a quartet to sing, they simply call the police station'."

It turns out faith -- at least faith that does not embrace violence to achieve its goals -- promotes positive cultural values better than politicians do. As in America, politicians here are being outed and ousted over claims of sexual harassment and consumption of pornography on their government computers. Perhaps acknowledgement of a Higher Authority in their lives might have prevented them from embracing baser instincts.

If the BBC is rediscovering faith, that might possibly lead to a renewed interest in the subject among the public and who knows, another revival? God knows the UK and America could use one.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
