POTUS PUSHES PRISON REFORM

December 7th, 2018

Praise Rolls in for POTUS’ Announcement on the FIRST STEP Act

POTUS seeks justice.

Plus: New book release: THE OTHER SIDE OF PAIN

(Prayers and deepest condolences to the families of President President George H. W. Bush and all experiencing loss during this season.)

Praise for President Trump’s support of the FIRST STEP Act and urge its passage through Congress:

HERITAGE FOUNDATION PRESIDENT KAY COLES JAMES: “These conservative, individualized and data-driven reforms will give prisoners the education, skills, and rehabilitation they need to return to their communities and prosper. I applaud President Trump and members of Congress for coming together to recognize this opportunity.”

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE PAUL RYAN: “Redemption is at the heart of the American Idea, and that’s what this is about. Creating a smoother path for those who have been incarcerated to successfully reenter and contribute to society is a worthwhile goal and one we have long been working toward. The President’s announcement is an encouraging sign that we can achieve substantive reforms to our criminal justice system in this Congress.”

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): “Very excited to have President @realDonaldTrump’s support for the FIRST STEP Act. This bipartisan legislation gives nonviolent offenders an earned second chance and should dramatically reduce the recidivism rate by focusing on skills necessary for people to stay out of prison.”

FOX NEWS’ SEAN HANNITY: “I think we do need real reform. There is unfairness in the system. … Punishment is not working. If you have a 77% recidivism rate, locking you up in a place with bad people and you’re not helping or advancing and changing hearts and minds, it makes sense to me.”

CNN’S VAN JONES: “Give the man his due: @realDonaldTrump is on his way to becoming the uniter-in-Chief on an issue that has divided America for generations.”

SEN. MIKE LEE (R-UT) IN FOX NEWS: A Conservative Case for Criminal Justice Reform
“We now have a rare opportunity to pass criminal justice reform that will help restore trust in law enforcement and protect American families. In May of this year, the House of Representatives passed the First Step Act, which includes some much-needed prison reform measures that would reduce recidivism. … It is unlikely we will get another opportunity to enact meaningful reform anytime soon. President Obama failed to accomplish criminal-justice reform during his eight years in office. But President Trump and the Republican Congress can get the job done now. It would be another big step toward making America great again.”

WASHINGTON EXAMINER EDITORIAL BOARD: Trump Is Right to Embrace Criminal Justice Reform
“On Wednesday, Trump signaled his full-throated support for a bipartisan bill called the First Step Act, which would reform federal prison and re-entry procedures while also modestly scaling back mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug felons. These reforms are very much in harmony with the lessons learned by conservative legislators at the state level.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL BOARD: A Real Chance at Criminal Justice Reform
“In this early test, the president is signaling that he indeed wants to make progress on critical issues that enjoy broad bipartisan support. Lawmakers from both parties should follow suit. … [The First Step Act] would reduce mandatory sentencing guidelines for certain drug crimes, allow judges greater wiggle room in sentencing nonviolent drug offenders, do away with the ‘stacking’ provision that tacks on years for the use of a firearm during the commission of a crime and, at long last, make retroactive the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, which reduced the sentencing gap between crack and powder-cocaine offenses.”

WASHINGTON EXAMINER CONTRIBUTOR MARK VARGAS: Our Cruel and Inhumane Prison System Is So Close To Reform
“Thanks to the leadership of President Trump, the discussion about prison and sentencing reform is back on the table. … The First Step Act, which passed the House of Representatives back in May with overwhelming bipartisan support, is a big step in bringing about reform. It’s now time for the Senate to act and pass this historic piece of legislation so that the president can sign it.”

FREEDOMWORKS PRESIDENT ADAM BRANDON IN THE HILL: Time to Pass the First Step Act
“The merits of the First Step Act compromise package in the Senate stand on their own legs. Carefully crafted criminal justice reforms that provide modest but meaningful incentives to prisoners to participate in evidence based programming individually designed to reduce their risk of reoffense upon release from prison is all but entirely noncontroversial legislation.”

FORMER REP. J.C. WATTS (R-OK) IN THE OKLAHOMAN: Now Is the Time to Pass “First Step Act”
“The goal of the ‘First Step Act’ is to give those leaving prison the tools and resources needed to successfully re-enter society and most importantly, live a crime-free life. The bill will likely also include long-overdue changes to some of the most unnecessarily harsh sentencing laws in the federal system. The bill will be introduced in the Senate this week and should have the support of Oklahoma Sens. Jim Inhofe and James Lankford. As long as Democrats who have shown and voiced support of the legislation follow through, the bill should get well above the votes it needs to pass.”

USAToday OpEd – Kushner: President Trump’s Bipartisan Prison Reforms Will Reduce Recidivism and Improve Public Safety

[Excerpt. Link to full op-ed HERE]
“Crime imposes substantial fiscal and social costs on the United States. Victims and society at large also bear significant costs through pain, suffering, reduced quality of life, property losses, increased medical costs, and loss of life. The most recent estimates from 2014 indicate that altogether these damages constitute an additional 1.5 percent of GDP, yielding a total burden of 2.9 percent of GDP, or roughly $500 billion.

“These costs can be attributed, in part, to crimes committed by prisoners after already serving once in prison, through recidivism after being released from state and federal facilities.
To break this cycle, President Donald J. Trump is working to effect bipartisan and evidence-based prison reforms to reduce recidivism. He issued an executive order in March that is bringing together more than a dozen Federal agencies to identify ways to reduce recidivism, enhance the reentry process, and improve public safety.

“The administration also worked with Congress to draft the FIRST STEP Act, legislation which seeks to strengthen recidivism reduction and evidence-based reentry programs for inmates in federal prisons.

“This White House recognizes that fiscal and human costs of criminal activity are unacceptably high. Through our efforts to break the cycle of crime and reduce recidivism, we can assist more people to contribute to our society rather than be a burden to our great country.”

CHRISTMAS IS A TIME FOR JUBILEE: Bring Daddy and Mommy Home!

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.” Luke 4:18

Happy Holidays? How Do We Get There?

November 22nd, 2018

“Thank God for what we have left!” ~ Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr.

As the holidays are upon us, let us be mindful that these next few weeks are beautiful opportunities to express love, grace, encouragement and peace towards others. There are some people, and in some cases someone we know, or even we ourselves are in dire need of a prayer or two this holiday season. Some have lost loved ones and some have lost much to tragedies. Yet there are reasons and opportunities to spread love to others right now. A notion such as this may seem difficult, especially with the brutal mid-terms behind us, and some political runoff elections ahead of us; but let’s just try to be civil to one another.

The concept of civility springs from the word civilis, which in Latin means “citizen.” Civility is impacted by a person’s emotions or lack thereof. If a person is emotionally affected by the negative feedback that they get from other people and react in a psychologically normal manner, then they are defined as civil.

In my everyday circles at home with family, at church, at work and in the communities at large, I work hard to keep the commandment to “love one another.” Another helpful process, which I learned from the “King Family Legacy Code of Nonviolence,” is to communicate differences in a civil manner with the expectation of a “win-win” outcome. Around Thanksgiving Season, I begin to half-jokingly say: “Don’t be guilty of ripping the leg off the turkey” and beating up others with it.” I only say half-jokingly because so many families are divided these days. I know the Bible teaches that relatives with rise up to disagree with others; but does this have to happen in our families?

During the holiday season, there will be plenty of good food to go around. In addition to spending time with family and friends, ministry always joins in efforts to feed the hungry. Then, for the rest of the day, our family makes the rounds from house to house, delivering delicious dishes and good cheer. All of this is good; but without Agape Love at the tables, something is missing. Along with genuine Agape Love, another addition to the meals and festivities should be a “spiritual fruit bowl.”

Galatians 5:22-23 New International Version (NIV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law
.

Holidays should not be the only time we practice this behavior. We should always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks us to give the reason for the hope that we have. But we must do so with gentleness and respect. Example: Rather than just using our lovely “Jesus is the Reason for The Season,” theme, let’s be ready with some genuine and transparent sayings that explain why we are thankful and why we are looking for Christmas.

We need to interact with both Christians and non-Christians in a respectful way. Jesus did. In John 4, as Jesus talked to the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus associated with someone who was far from acceptable in Jewish society, and while He fully told her the truth, He did so in a kind, compassionate, and redemptive manner. As apologists we too need to speak truth boldly in the public square, but we need to do so as Christ’s representatives, bearing the fruit of His Spirit (Gal. 5:22–26). This means refraining from insults, name-calling, and excoriation not only in theological discourse but also in political diatribes.

Actually, as Christians, we should not even be involved in political debates and any mean spirited activities; not at Thanksgiving, not at Christmas; not ever. We would be better served to be praying for all of our leaders, and also voting for government God’s way. So, while we are baking the turkeys and wrapping the gifts and all of the beautiful activities ahead of us; let us pray. Please click HERE and HERE for 2 Alveda King Holiday videos.

As the Dust from the Mid-Term Wars Begins To Settle, Prayer Remains Key

November 14th, 2018

In the aftermath of the mid-term elections, as the dust begins to settle, I keep wondering why Christians would “roll over and play dead” at the polls? Why would Christians “run for cover” rather than fight the good fight of faith at the polls? Why would we go undercover when someone punches us in the gut for standing up for Bible truth?

Then it occurred to me; the weapons of our warfare are not carnal; they are mighty before God. Yes, when we get hit hard, we bleed; but we don’t die. We fight back with love and sound doctrine. We remain loving and forgiving; but we fight back. Listen to my post-election commentary.

Hit me with a lie? I pray, forgive and keep moving. Catch me in a lie? I repent, stop sinning and keep moving. It’s hard to hit a praying target.

Call me a racist? I raise up the shield of Acts 17:26: “Of one blood, God created the Human Race.” We are not Color Blind. We are destined to celebrate ethnic diversity as One Human Race. We are created by God to live and love in spirit and in truth. Don’t vote for sin.

Call me crazy for resisting abortion? I raise up the banner of the gift of choosing life.

Call me a fool for supporting procreation? I stay in the fight, voting for life, praying for life for the generations to come.

Yes I have a “dog in this fight!” I’m fighting for life, liberty and justice for everyone: the child in the womb, the person behind bars, the poor, the sick, the elderly; the enslaved and the free. I’m fighting for economic, social and moral justice for everyone; for safety and security for everyone.

Yet, we must always serve God, not just at church on Sundays. We must also serve God at the polls. Our President is right; “We serve God, not government.”

My vote matters. Yours does too.

Yes, with my vote, I put on my mask first. If I can’t breathe, how can I help you? But I will help you, I will love you. I just need God’s help to help you.

We are “never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:9

Yes, the mid-terms are behind us. Thanksgiving, Christmas and the March for Life are ahead. Then it’s off to the races for 2020 elections.

Please take a moment to pray, thank God for Life, and spend a few tender moments in worship. God bless you.

A praying America is a greater America.
A working America is a greater America.
A safe and secure America is a greater America.
A just America is greater America.
Vote Prolife

Why vote Prolife? With one punch of the ballot, one pull of the lever, one click of the mouse, one stroke of a pen; however they do it at your poll; you strike a blow at that three headed monster. We are all one blood/one human race. (Acts 17:26-28)

We must fight and vote for freedom for everyone; for the womb to the tomb.

Did you know that abortion, racism, human trafficking and poverty are all part of the same dirty system? They are part of the three headed swamp monster that’s going down MAGA’s drain.

God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. Know your rights!

Martin Luther King, Jr. once demanded: “Give us the ballot!” Before his death, my beloved mentor, Pastor Allen McNair said: “Don’t Vote for Sin!”

Whatever the outcome tomorrow, do your part. Vote for Life and Pray for America.

Make your vote count. Vote Prolife.

New Video From Priests for Life Highlights President Trump’s Pro-Life Accomplishments

October 16th, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 16, 2018

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has released a new video highlighting President Trump’s pro-life accomplishments since assuming office in January 2017.

The video, produced at Priests for Life headquarters in Titusville, Florida, opens with the statement, “Many pro-life people worked hard to elect President Donald Trump. That hard work has paid off for the pro-life movement and the unborn.”

The video then goes on, in a “top 10” format, to summarize what he has done for the cause of protecting children in the womb.

The accomplishments include supporting pro-life legislation to protect babies and to defund the abortion industry; appointing pro-life people to key positions at the White House; ending the HHS mandate that tried to compel faith-based employers to provide free abortifacient drugs to their employees; ending U.S. funding for abortion overseas; protecting state and federal money from going to the abortion industry, and appointing outstanding judges to the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court.

The video also touts the president’s most important accomplishment:

“The first and greatest thing that President Trump did for the pro-life movement was to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.”

The video calls on Americans to vote in the Nov. 6 midterm elections to ensure that pro-life lawmakers remain in the majority in both the House and the Senate.

“The election of 2018 will be about the Trump voters from 2016. They need to turn out in equal and greater numbers, and this video seeks to motivate them to do just that. Just as the 2016 election defied political history, this midterm election can do the same, for the same reason: The people who want to make America great again, to make the children in the womb protected again,” Father Pavone said. “A Democrat takeover of Congress will mean that, instead of the Congress de-funding Planned Parenthood or protecting babies from painful late-term abortions, they will be embroiled in impeachment proceedings that will not in fact result in removing either the president or Justice Kavanaugh from their positions, and will only be a waste of the time and energy of the American people and those whom they elect.”

Father Pavone invited news outlets to post the video on their websites and to broadcast it on the air. An audio file is available for radio stations. Both audio and video can be found at prolifepresident.com

“In November, Americans must vote, and must vote pro-life,” he said. “The lives of millions of unborn babies depend on it.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Farewell Ambassador, Welcome Justice

October 11th, 2018

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose…
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away…”
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6 KJV

In the last several days, we’ve had so many things changing that we’re having to pray hard to keep up. Certainly President Donald John Trump is moving forward with the agenda; as he is keeping his promises to make America great again. What with the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and approaching departure of UN Ambassador Nikky Haley, we can expect more transformation.

Justice Kavanaugh and his beloved family have survived a trial by fire, and he is entering into a heightened season of public service. Ambassador Haley is seeking a well-deserved break from service to humanity to attend to her family for a season. Who can blame her? Well done Madame.

We’re living in a time that when we wake up we can either ask and say: “What is happening today? Let me turn on the news.” or we can ask and say, “What’s going to happen today? Let me tune in to God.” Your outcome will be guided by your perspective. My pastor Theo McNair at Believers Bible Christian Church often teaches that we should ask God to bless our perspective.

I’m saying all this to point out that as the world is moving on around us, we should be asking ourselves, “What are we going to do in the process?”

Please check out these two audio clips (Audio One and Audio Two) of some reflections; and be encouraged as you move forward. Begin to look at your day with a new perspective. There’s a song, “Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord, I Want to See You.” Pray with open hearts, eyes and arms.

The world is out there and we step into it all the time. What are we going to do with and about the events around us? Are we going to make the world a better place or are we just going to see problems and have problems? God uses people to make history. God uses people to accomplish divine purposes. Let’s join together, pray and actually become part of the solution.

100% Surely Wrong: Facts Clouded By Emotions. So I Made Them Fix The Furniture

October 3rd, 2018

Friends, my Executive Assistant, Eugene Vigil, has an enlightening take on the Kavanaugh situation. Life teaches us that emotional responses to real or imagined injustice and desires can have unexpected results. Sometimes, as with Joseph and Potiphar’s wife, there is malice. Other times, as with Eugene’s situation, there are mistakes. You decide! Enjoy this guest blog. Alveda

The situation with the Kavanaugh appointment has called an old memory about a furniture sale to surface for me. Meanwhile, I am praying for Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh and the whole situation they find themselves in.

I don’t know what happened because I wasn’t there. But what I do know is that there are some people who will do anything to keep Judge Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. They are even willing to rule out the possibility of Dr. Ford’s emotions overriding reality. They will do anything to protect their power no matter who they hurt. May God have mercy on their souls! I can say this because my own emotions once caused me to make a big mistake.

Memory is a funny thing. I know mine has gotten worse over the years. But I want to share a story of one particular time in my life. The year was in the late 1998 or early 1999. I was living in Albuquerque, NM at the time with my wife, two adopted children and a foster child.

My wife and I purchased a nice dining room table and eight upholstered chairs. It was the nicest one we had ever owned. It wasn’t too expensive because we purchased it on sale.

After we had had the set for a year or so we started having problems with the chairs. A couple of them began to come loose where the back of the chair met the back part of the seat. I called American Home Furniture store and explained the issue to them and they were very helpful. They asked me when I had purchased the dining room set and I told them that I wasn’t certain because I couldn’t find my receipt. I was able to nail it down to a two-three month time period.

They agreed to send out a repair person to fix the chairs which they did. He worked on either two or three chairs. I don’t quite remember.

A month or so later the problem returned and I called the store again. This time they wanted to look up the receipt in their system because I had purchased them on my credit account. They said they would review their records and get back to me.

A day or so later they called me back and said they couldn’t find the purchase I had made. I insisted that I had made the purchase and I always bought my furniture from them. My purchasing record testified to the accuracy of my statement. We spend a lot of money at their store over the years. I insisted that they send someone out to fix the chairs they sold me. Again, they agreed to do that.

Much to my dismay in a short time the chairs started wobbling again. That was it. I was going to ask them to replace the whole set.

I called and spoke to the manager of the store and we went over the situation of no receipt and his search that didn’t turn up a purchase in their system or on my account. Again I was insistent and I wanted him to resolve the problem. It took some convincing over about a half hour conversation to get him to agree to take the table and chairs back so I could purchase a different set.

I don’t know what happened but just as he had agreed to my demands an epiphany occurred. Just like that I realized that we hadn’t purchased the dining room set from them but from Montgomery Ward when they were going out of business. Boy, did I feel like a fool.

I explained to the manager what had just occurred and apologized and offered to pay them for sending out a repairman twice. The manager was very graceful and said that he appreciated my honesty and said that I didn’t need to pay them.

I could have just kept my mouth shut and I could have had a new dining room set. But that would have been dishonest. It wasn’t easy admitting to the manager that I had made a mistake not once but over several months. I was 100% sure that I had purchased the dining room set from their store. But I had made a huge mistake.

Like I said at the beginning, memory is a funny thing.

I thought about this incident as I was watching the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing when he and Dr. Ford were testifying. So much was made of Dr. Ford being 100% sure that it was Judge Kavanaugh that assaulted her. But I know from personal experience that someone can be 100% sure of something and still be mistaken.

I didn’t set out to defraud American Home Furniture. I was 100% sure I purchased the table and chairs from them. But at the end I did the right thing and told the manager that I had made a mistake.

Thanks Eugene

Let’s pray that the same grace that helped Eugene will help shed light on the issue of SCOTUS now. The lives of the innocent babies are hanging in the balance.

They Want to Lynch Judge Kavanaugh!

September 26th, 2018

Congressional Opponents and some of their allies in the media have adopted an unprecedented standard of guilty until proven innocent to use thin and unsubstantiated claims to smear Judge Kavanaugh who POTUS has nominated for our next Supreme Court Justice.

With blatant disregard for the health of America, women and children in particular, the anti-life contingent continues to peddle violence under the guise of a false narrative for justice by “resisting” the appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to SCOTUS.

Here’s a message from my beloved, now deceased pastor of 30 years. Pastor Allen McNair: Don’t Vote for Sin.

In addition, Rev. Bill Owens, Founder of Coalition of African American Pastors writes:

“Brett Kavanaugh has served his country with integrity. He has an exemplary record going back more than three decades,” stated Rev. Owens. “Now, his reputation has been maligned and his character attacked via an unsubstantiated allegation from when he was in high school. This is absurdity.”

“There is nothing to indicate that we should take these accusations seriously. From the moment they became public, it was clear that even the Democrats did not have faith in their veracity and were only hoping to manipulate the process… The Kavanaugh confirmation hearings have become an offense to decency and common sense. We, the people, have grown sick of this political posturing and partisanship. And we are unwilling to see a man’s character smeared for political gain? No! CAAP has launched a petition calling for a quick and civil confirmation vote. Join us! America must stop entertaining this obvious and manipulative smear campaign; end this circus before it does further harm to our country. It’s time to vote.”

In addition, Walter and Lori Hoye at ISSUES4LIFE tweeted:

Wait! There’s more!

THE NEW YORKER published new allegations against Judge Kavanaugh despite the fact that it and the New York Times found zero evidence or first-hand corroborations.

THE NEW YORK TIMES: The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.

Ronan Farrow, one of the authors of an article, admitted there has been no eyewitness confirmation of Debby Ramirez’s allegations.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: “But by your own admission, no eyewitness of the incident?”

RONAN FARROW: “Absolutely and we disclosed that up front and we also disclosed that she was inebriated at the time.”

Jane Mayer, one of the authors of the article, admitted that their only corroborating witness did not actually see anything happen and heard the story second-hand.

JOHN DICKERSON: “Jane, the corroborating witness which you say has all the details including Kavanaugh’s name, where did that witness come from and where did that witness get the information about this from if that person doesn’t know Ramirez?”

JANE MAYER: “He remembers it from, he was in the same dorm, same little building on Yale’s old campus, and he remembers it clearly. I asked him you know of course we’re going to be very careful–“

DICKERSON: “But did he see it?”

MAYER: “No, as I’ve said he heard it from someone who was there.”

Even the accuser’s best friend at the time said she had never heard of the allegation from her or from anyone else at school.

THE NEW YORKER: “The former friend who was married to the male classmate alleged to be involved, and who signed the statement, said of Ramirez, “This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.”

The accuser was originally unsure if Kavanaugh was even responsible and only came forward after talking with a lawyer recommended by Senate Democrats for six days.

THE NEW YORKER: “She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident.”

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: “She said at first she wasn’t sure this was Kavanagh when you first came to her last week. And then you write after six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorneys she did become confident that it was him.”

As the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board wrote, this is the terrifying new standard radical Democrats are using to force Judge Kavanaugh to prove he is innocent, without any evidence to prove he is guilty.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL EDITORIAL BOARD: “As Ms. Hill and Sen. Hirono over, the Democratic standard for sexual-assault allegations is that they should be accepted as true merely for having been made. The accuser is assumed to be telling the truth because the accuser is a woman. The burden is on Mr. Kavanaugh to prove his innocence. If he cannot do so, then he is unfit to serve on the Court.”

Senator Lindsey Graham calls this “the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process” to be replaced with “wholesale character assassination.”

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM: “What we are witnessing is the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee. It is being replaced by a game of delay, deception, and wholesale character assassination.”

WARNING!

The church must not be silent at this critical time! We must stand upon the WORD OF GOD and vote to resist evil. We must pray, then vote to support the POTUS life affirming agenda.

Genocide and Eugenics are Death Care; Injustice Anywhere…

September 10th, 2018

British Prime Minister Theresa May is promoting foreign aid to Africa. Her so called “aid” is laced with abortion and chemical/artificial device laden death care. Chelsea Clinton is touting this same eugenic/genocidal death care agenda as an economic boon. Not to be left behind in advertising death care, Oprah Winfrey is telling women to “Shout Your Abortion!” What is the world coming to?

For the past three decades, I have traveled the globe to Africa, Europe, Middle East, Caribbean Islands and US, with a message of truth, hope, life and light. At every port, I always find this to be true – people all over the world have much in common. We are one blood/one human race. We all bleed the same.

As a young girl in college, our class studied Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. As we revisit his chart today, we can see that his principles align with Acts 17:26: as the One Blood/One Race Human Family, we all need and bleed the same.

This month, the opportunity to travel around the nation and appear on national Christian television (The Jim Bakker Show and TBN’s Praise show) as well as in the White House and the jail house presented itself. Also, a young millennial shared a quote with me from one of her mentors, Dr. Asa Hilliard, III, which I’ve shared in my electronic inspirational series “Pearls and Nuggets.”

“I have never encountered any children in any group who are not geniuses. There is no mystery on how to teach them. The first thing you do is treat them like human beings and the second thing you do is love them.” – Asa G. Hilliard III

In all of these experiences, one theme is so concurrent that it looms across the lands and around the world; as human beings, we are one race and one blood, and our souls are crying out for love and mercy. We don’t need death care. We need life care. We need to agree to love and forgive each other. We need to repent for our wrong doings and be forgiven. Finally, we need to Pray for America.

Wow, What a Week: Prison Reform, Abortion, Fake News, and Prayer at the White House

August 31st, 2018

First, #PrisonSeparatesFamilies. #BringOurDadsHome.

Angela Stanton and I just returned from speaking at a prison ministry service in Mississippi to about 200 men. Almost every man in the room was a father, grandfather and some were great-grandfathers. It was such a blessing to be able to bring hope to the lives of those that in a place that presumably doesn’t often offer much hope.

Second, #AbortionSeparatesFamilies. #LetOurChildrenLive.

Abortion activists are at it again. This time it’s The Afiya Center, a black women’s reproductive rights group as reported by The Daily Caller. No matter how much they try to make abortion just another life event like taking out the trash or making your bed, abortion is and will always be something that kills a baby in the womb and hurts women and men and our society as a whole.

Then there’s the news report about some housewives, and what I really said.

When I spoke about the spoof from Cardi B, ‘Housewives of the Civil Rights Movement’ in an interview with TMZ, I said that my Uncle, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have chuckled, not in approval but rather as a knee jerk reaction. He would not have approved of any misrepresentation that paints his wife and other Civil Rights leaders in the culture of today with all the profanity and disrespectful treatment of women that is so commonly seen in today’s media. Not hating on the young ladies in the spoof; just saying.

Finally, prayer which should be the best part of any week; in this case, prayer at the White House with the President, First Lady and many evangelical leaders from around the country.

We must continue to #PrayForAmerica!
