by Mark Alexander
The Rev. Billy Graham, prominent 
Christian evangelist, dead at 99 
{ } ~ The Rev. Billy Graham , the Christian evangelist whose worldwide crusades and role as adviser to decades of U.S. presidents... made him one of the best known religious figures of his time, died Wednesday at age 99 at his home in Montreat, N.C, Todd Shearer of DeMoss Associates told Fox News. Graham, who had been in ill health for a number of years, was regularly listed in polls as one of the "Ten Most Admired Men in the World." Shearer told Fox News that Graham died from "natural causes."  His Christian crusades took him from the frenzy of Manhattan to isolated African villages and according to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, he preached to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history...
Intel Chairman Nunes Goes After liar-nObama’s
Treasonous Deep State Leadership 
{ } ~ Representative Devin Nunes may go down in history as the individual most responsible for saving our Republic and our President... from the shadow government Democrat coup that is underway. Once again he is demanding answers and letting the American people get a taste of the kind of subversion he is aware of and individuals he seeks to bring to justice. Catherine Herridge reports, “With this letter to current and former intelligence, law enforcement and State Department officials, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee launched phase II of the committee’s Trump dossier investigation.” She continues, “Chairman Devin Nunes posed a string of dossier-related questions covering when the officials learned the DNC and liar-Clinton campaign paid for the research by former British spy Christopher Steele, as well as how the dossier was used to secure one or more surveillance warrants.”...
Latest Mueller target pleads guilty 
{ } ~ Special counsel Robert Mueller's sprawling investigation's latest target pleaded guilty Tuesday to lying to investigators about communications with Trump campaign aide... Rick Gates and others involved in a 2012 project related to Ukraine. Alex van der Zwaan, 33, a Dutch citizen who worked in London for the law firm Skadden Arps, had been involved in preparing a report on Ukraine that was commissioned by Gates and Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman. The pair is facing charges from Mueller over their own work involving Ukraine.  Van der Zwaan entered a guilty plea to the felony false-statements charge during an hour-long hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington. Sentencing was set for April 3, after the defense asked to speed things up because van der Zwaan's wife, Eva, the daughter of a Russian oligarch, is pregnant in London.  Van der Zwaan is the latest to face charges in Mueller's wide-ranging investigation, which revolves around Russian meddling in the 2016 election but can expand to encompass any crimes he finds along the way. Mueller is also looking into whether any Trump aides helped with Moscow's electoral interference and whether the president tried to obstruct the investigation...Ah, Mueller is still going after Trump. 
Judge Napolitano Thinks Gov’t May Have 
Strong Armed Michael Flynn Into Guilty Plea
{ } ~ Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said it’s possible former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is innocent... and was forced to plead guilty to lying to federal agents for reasons other than guilt. “I’ve never heard of this. So Mike Flynn pleads guilty to lying to the FBI in December. The judge before whom he pleads guilty takes himself off the case. Why? Because that judge is also on the FISA court. And he may, he may very well have authorized the wiretap that surveilled Mike Flynn when he was talking to then Ambassador Kislyak, which is the alleged lie that he told the FBI about,” Napaolitano said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.” “So Mike Flynn pleads guilty. A new judge comes in. It’s time for sentencing. Bob Mueller says we don’t want to sentence him until May. That’s normal.” “Then the judge on his own, not in response to any application from General Flynn’s lawyers says, ‘By the way, I want all exculpatory evidence, evidence that could help Flynn or hurt the government turned over,'” Napolitano continued. “Why would he we want that after General Flynn has already pleaded guilty? That is unheard of. He must suspect a defect in the guilty plea. Meaning, he must have reason to believe that General  Flynn pleaded guilty for some reason other than guilt. Do people plead guilty for a reason other than guilt?”...

by Randy DeSoto

The Media Research Center watchdog group reported that this tally had come in as of Monday morning. The segment where Behar made the comparison centered around a back-and-forth regarding Vice President Mike Pence’s faith, based on some recent comments made by former White House staff Omarosa Manigault...

Billy Graham Has Gone Home 

by Mark Alexander:  “My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.” Billy Graham spoke those words often Born Nov. 7, 1918, he went home this morning at the age of 99. A friend, who spent years working with Graham’s ministries, observed, “Can you imagine the line of people waiting to say ‘thanks’ for sharing Christ with me!‘”

          “America’s Pastor” wanted to be a baseball player early in life, but after attending a Christian revival at age 16, his life was forever changed. Over the course of his life, he preached the saving gospel of Jesus Christ to hundreds of millions in 185 countries, and his message, broadcast via radio, TV, Decision magazine, newspaper columns, the Internet and 29 books, touched many millions more. The Billy Graham Crusades ran from the 1940s until his last New York City crusade in 2005, by which time Parkinson’s Disease had rendered him too weak to keep up the crusade pace.
          If you had the privilege of being among those in attendance, count yourself blessed. If not, there are plenty of his messages available online, including his last public sermon in 2006, which my children attended. And fittingly, there was this reflection on the occasion of his 99th birthday.
          Graham consulted and prayed with every American president from Harry Truman forward, and even presided at the graveside service for Lyndon Johnson and gave a eulogy at the funeral of Richard Nixon.
          In 1996, on the occasion of being presented the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award by Congress, Graham offered these observations about our nation:
          America has gone a long way down the wrong road. We must turn around and go back and change roads. If ever we needed God’s help, it is now. … If ever we needed spiritual renewal, it is now. And it can begin today in each one of our lives, as we repent before God and yield ourselves to Him and His Word. After World War II … we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good. … The list is almost endless. … We have confused liberty with license — and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction.
          What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. … I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established — principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible… What must be done? Let me briefly suggest three things. First, we must repent. In the depths of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln called for special days of public repentance and prayer. Our need for repentance is no less today
          What does repentance mean? Repentance means to change our thinking and our way of living. It means to turn from our sins and to commit ourselves to God and His will. Over 2,700 years ago, the Old Testament prophet Isaiah declared, “Seek the Lord while he may be found, call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.” (Isaiah 55: 6-7)
          Second, we must commit our lives to God, and to the moral and spiritual truths that have made this nation great. Think how different our nation would be if we sought to follow the simple and yet profound injunctions of the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. But we must respond to God, Who is offering us forgiveness, mercy, supernatural help, and the power to change.
          Graham concluded: Third, our commitment must be translated into action — in our homes, in our neighborhoods, and in our society. Jesus taught there are only two roads in life. One is the broad road that is easy and well-traveled, but which leads to destruction. The other, He said, is the narrow road of truth and faith that at times is hard and lonely, but which leads to life and salvation. … What are YOU going to do? … As I look out across this distinguished group gathered here, I see more than a few men and women who have what it takes, under God, to lead our country forward “through the night.” And indeed, that charge undergirds our mission every day.
          Billy Graham preached not only to world leaders but also to the very poorest in Third World villages and everywhere in between. He defied boundaries of class and race to present a timeless message of hope for all people.
          Amid all the world travel, he was, first and foremost, a family man. His wife of 64 years, Ruth Bell Graham, was a Wheaton College classmate. Her parents were Presbyterian missionaries in China. Billy and Ruth married in 1943 and had five children, and now 19 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. Mrs. Graham died in 2007. Their eldest son, Franklin, officially took the helm of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in 2000, and many of his other children and grandchildren are involved in ministry.
          Accordingly, Graham devoted many of his messages to marriage and family. There is a framed personal letter from him written in 2014 on the wall next to my workstation – a constant reminder of what is really important in life. It closes, “Continue to fight the good fight, Mark. Don’t ever retire from life. Continue to lead Ann and your children for all the years that our Lord gives to you.” I have sometimes failed as a husband and father, but, by the Grace of God, have been forgiven, and indeed, will never retire from life.
          Of his own life, Graham said, “My one purpose is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ.
          Knowing that he’d lived a long life dedicated to that purpose, he also said, “On day you will hear that Billy Graham has died. Don’t believe it. On that day I will be more alive than I ever.
          On behalf of all our Patriot editors and staff, “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21). Welcome home.   ~The Patriot Pos

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
