""China routinely broke federal law by not disclosing how much it spent to publish regime propaganda in the New York Times,""
China will be really, really worried about that.
Quote:: "But the world has changed a great deal since the âneither friends nor foesâ label was first slapped on U.S.-Chinese relations two decades ago. The remarkable expansion of Chinese power and the global financial crisis that ravaged the economies of the United States and Europe have accentuated the sense that the West is declining and the rest are rising. The gap between U.S. and Chinese power, which was already narrowing before the financial crisis, has since closed further. In 2007, the United Statesâ economy was four times as large as that of China; by 2012, it was only twice as large." (foreignaffairs.com)
Mammon's currency will have no value in the future city.
Heb 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."
"This is the city which God has prepared for them (Heb. 11:16), mentioned again in Hebrews 12:22 as the âcity of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem.â We read again in 13:14 that âhere [that is, on this present earth] we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.â This surely refers to the heavenly Jerusalem of Hebrews 12:22, the city which has foundations (Heb. 11:10). Relevant here is Revelation 21:1â2, where we read that John âsaw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from Godâ (cf. 21:9â11)." (Sam Storms)
The 'world' is doing what was prophesied by the Lord.
2Tim 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."
Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."

Why Jim; You do realize that's the first good news you've post about your illustrious President.
The Liberalist - Socialist - politically correct, sycophantic UN is bound to be against all right wing positions.
Global Warming is never a scientific 'DEBATE' - Because they do not consider both sides of the debate.
Their 'science' comes mainly from the media hype on Global Warming. NO other science would ever be viewed through tabloids and TV.
Global Warming is Global Baloney!!!
"manmade global warming is only about 0.6Â°F, while the sun contributed another 0.6Â°F. Manâs contribution is slight, and not enough manmade warming has occurred to panic over. There is a good chance that man can do nothing or only very little to change the manmade portion, even if he spent what alarmist suggest to âfightâ global warming (although we should always have been and should continue to be good stewards of the resources God has provided us). We have plenty of time for research. We can also learn to adapt by making changes, if global warming continues its slow upward trend, such as building dikes for rising sea level. (Some scientists are actually predicting global cooling in the future based on trends on the sun, but this remains to be seen.) Spending hundreds of billions of dollars a year to âfightâ global warming just doesnât make sense" (answersingenesis)
From Article::: ""But MinistryWatch explained that like the Equality Bill, Stewart's bill would expand federal laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, color and national origin to include sexual orientation and gender identity.""
Haven't we already been down this road?
These bureaucrats really don't understand that GOD called this sin an 'abomination' and it can never be acceptable to any Christian - regardless of the verbal tricks they apply.
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."
The papal antichrist seems to by trying to win friends and influence gullible people.
I thought it was Vatican policy to assert that a little bit of deception is quite acceptable to the peasants when ruling their religious convictions?
2John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."
1John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
I mean ...... "Papal infallibility is a dogma of the Catholic Church that states that, in virtue of the promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error "when, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church." Infallibility is, according to the New Catholic Encyclopedia, "more than a simple, de facto absence of error. It is a positive perfection, ruling out the possibility of error" (Wiki)
GOD warns: Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
Prov 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD."
Total Depravity revealed in the western nations of this fallen world. The reprobates seem to think they have complete carte blanche to spread sin, wickedness and corruption throughout the world. what they don't realize is that Satan is really in charge of their lives.
Jude :7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 9. ... The Lord rebuke thee. 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them!"
Prov 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."
The Liberalist country of Canada considers euthanasia.
Liberalism approves and supports abortion and abomination, so euthanasia will also be next on Satan's list.
What euthanasia brings is not just how the death of a person is achieved, but also what that means to society. Has life in some forms become irrelevant to the culture of that society? Who has the right in society to make this decision for others?
Why kill this human being who has a life and is entitled to experience it without the interference of an arbitrary bureaucracy who thinks that particular life, in this form, is unnecessary, worthless or unimportant? Whats the criteria?
Eccl 8:6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him. 7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? 8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it."
Persecution is neither strange nor surprising. It is also not meaningless. The Apostle Peter goes on to write these words: âLet those also who suffer according to the will of God entrust their souls to a faithful Creatorâ (1 Peter 4:19). Suffering persecution is not outside the will of God. God is sovereign over all things, including our pain, suffering, and Satanâs attacks. We have every reason to hope in God because He is not surprised, He does not take risks, and He is able to overcome anything. Psalm 135:6 says, âWhatever the LORD pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps.â
An oft-noted result of persecution is that through the Lordâs sovereignty, great movements of the gospel spread across the land. In the book of Acts, Stephen was martyred and the church scattered, preaching the gospel as they went throughout Judea, Samaria, and the outermost parts of the earth."

""Independent abortion businesses are closing at a rapid pace across the United States as states pass laws to protect unborn babies and mothers from abortion. A new report from the pro-abortion Abortion Care Network found that almost one third of all independent abortion facilities have closed since 2012.""
Praise be to God, Christ and the Holy Spirit for their grace and mercy.
"O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. 2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD." Psalm 117.
Satan seems to have the corruption of the future generation well in hand.
These 'abortion' Democrats are trying very hard to change the socio-politico landscape of the nation into a diabolical quagmire.
Teaching the sodomite agenda and abortion murder is a distinct Democrat policy and mindset. The 'tares' amongst the wheat.
Life begins at conception. Abortion-murder for some babies arrives not long after.
Acts 3:14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;"
Quote:- "Human development begins after the union of male and female gametes or germ cells during a process known as fertilization (conception). "Fertilization is a sequence of events that begins with the contact of a sperm (spermatozoon) with a secondary oocyte (ovum) and ends with the fusion of their pronuclei (the haploid nuclei of the sperm and ovum) and the mingling of their chromosomes to form a new cell. This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being." [Moore, Keith L. Essentials of Human Embryology. Toronto: B.C. Decker Inc, 1988, p.2]"

Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants."
