02/05/2018 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In light of the ever escalating violence in the Middle Belt region of Nigeria, International Christian Concern (ICC) will be publishing monthly reports throughout 2018. The reports will focus on the actions of Fulani militants and Boko Haram terrorists against Christian villages in the Middle Belt.

The month of January was particularly devastating for Christians in the Middle Belt. The region consists of the states straddled by the predominately Muslim north and predominately Christian south, including Adamawa, Benue, Kwara, Kogi, Nasarawa, Niger, Plateau, Taraba the Federal Capital Territory (Abuja), as well as the southern parts of Kaduna, Kebbi, Bauchi, Gombe, Yobe, and Borno States. This region has historically been one of the most violent and war-torn areas of Nigeria.

In January, ICC documented at least 44 attacks by Fulani militants on Christian farming villages that killed over 170 people and destroyed thousands of homes and other properties. ICC also documented eight Boko Haram attacks on communities which resulted in the deaths of 65 people.

Unfortunately, the Nigerian military also contributed to the number of individuals killed in the Middle Belt in January. According to sources in Adamawa state, military aircraft inadvertently killed nearly 35 Christians. The military says that the aircraft, including three jets and one helicopter, were meant to deter fighting between the two communities, but whether this is true or not, it did not help and only contributed to the total number of Christians killed in the Middle Belt region.

In January 2018, the total number of Christians killed in the Middle Belt region of Nigeria is over 250.

This number represents nearly a 40 percent increase in the number of Christians killed by Fulani and Boko Haram militants in January 2017. In January 2017, the Fulani perpetrated roughly 23 attacks on Christian communities, killing more than 75 people. Over that same time period, Boko Haram attacked 20 times and claimed over 105 lives. These numbers paint a bleak future for Christians trying to survive in the Middle Belt. If the statistics hold, they could mean a significant increase in the total number of Christians killed in the Middle Belt region, from around 1,900 total deaths in 2017 to more than 2,600 total deaths in 2018.

Below is a list of the biggest attacks and groupings of attacks ICC documented in January 2018.

  1. January 1-3: Fulani militants killed more than 50 Christians in six villages located in Benue (Tom-Atar and Umenge, Akor villages in Guma and Ayilamo, Turan, Ngambe-Tiev in Logo local government area).
  2. January 5-6: Fulani militants killed 15 Christian villagers in two villages in Benue (Tse Akombo, Tse Vii and Tse Agule).
  3. January 16-17: Fulani militants attacked and killed 29 people in five villages in Taraba (Gishiri, Dooshima, Danwaza, Wukari, and Donnada).

This dramatic increase in violence is a troubling sign for the year to come. Continued attacks will lead to further deaths, destabilization, and the devastation of the most fertile land in Nigeria. The government must step in and control the situation. It must end the violence that is tearing apart families, communities, and religious organizations.

 After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama 
Household Income Hits 50-Year High

Image result for money

Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.

As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.

By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.

So, how’s The Donald doing?

Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.

That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.

The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!! 

Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It

A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...

That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.

“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.

“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”

That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.

A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.

The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.

Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.

Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.

While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
