Very encouraging word from a godly leader. 6 minutes.
From me...to you.
How to live in perilous times:
“Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart…” (Luke 18:1)
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)
Getting Quiet for Time with the LORD
I like to start my day with my Bible, my journal and my pen. I choose one of the epistles in the New Testament and study each chapter. I write each scripture down, sometimes five or six verses, sometimes the entire chapter. There seems to be a slowing down of my busy thoughts as I’m writing.
We are to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, right? This is a good exercise to get the word planted in your heart and to renew your mind in peace. When you are done writing, you might read the word out loud also. Remember John15:7.
When I study, I am at my desk; no phone is allowed and the door is closed. Very often I listen to the Shofar when study time is over and I am beginning to pray.
One Pastor says: “I don’t have to hurry and I don’t have to worry.” That’s a good saying to confess often throughout your day!
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ.

FROM THE WHITE HOUSE
Americans Don't Want Impeachment, but Democrats aren't Listening
“The American people are sending a pretty clear message to Washington: They are sick and tired of the investigations into President Trump and don't want Democrats in Congress to impeach him. But the Democrats aren't listening,” Marc Thiessen writes in Fox News.
“A Harvard-Harris poll finds that 65 percent of Americans say Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. Sixty percent agree with Attorney General William Barr that ‘the facts and public actions of President Trump did not amount to obstruction of justice, especially since there was no underlying collusion.’”
“And 58 percent believe that ‘Given the Mueller report ... we should turn the page on investigations of President Trump.’”

“If there’s anyone left in America who actually believes Democratic Party leaders are interested in constructive dialogue with President Trump on substantive policy issues like infrastructure, I have a Russian conspiracy theory to sell them,” David Harsanyi writes in the New York Post. “Don’t buy that Pelosi and Schumer are outraged. They’re loving the status quo. It allows them to use congressional oversight investigations as a cudgel to push for a sham public impeachment, undermining Trump’s political agenda. When useful, however, they can also demand Trump meet with them in good faith to hash out deals their party finds useful. There is absolutely no reason for the president to play along.”
“Congressional Democrats are dangerously close to undercutting U.S. national security for the sake of scoring political points against President Trump. Shame on them,” Quin Hillyer writes in the Washington Examiner. For members of Congress to slanderously “accuse the secretaries of state and defense, the national security adviser, and the president of dishonesty in furtherance of warmongering, while not even bothering to offer words of condemnation against evil enemies such as the Iranian government, is to undercut U.S. forces at a crucial time.”
“President Donald Trump has directed the heads of several government agencies to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of the origins of the Russia probe. In a memo sent out Thursday, Trump also authorized Barr to declassify documents related to the Russia investigation,” Chuck Ross reports in The Daily Caller. Yesterday’s action “will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
“The New York federal judge who ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration must comply with two subpoenas from the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees has donated in the past to a slew of big-name Democrats -- including two who currently sit on those committees, according to federal election filings,” Gregg Re reports for Fox News. “Judges have the option to recuse themselves if there is an appearance of bias,” but Barack Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos chose not to.
Pelosi, Dems Just Don't Care About Our National Emergency
“Now in the majority with control over the House floor, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her conference are poised to let funding for the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program run out . . . First, Pelosi and Democrats denied the existence of the national emergency. Now, they are willing to let federal agencies run out of money to care for migrant children,” Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Jim Jordan (R-OH) write in Fox News.
“How bad does it have to get for Pelosi to care?”

Pelosi’s "cover-up" remark is just “part of her now-daily act of political cognitive dissonance in which she accuses Mr. Trump of committing impeachable offenses to appease her anti-Trump ultras while opposing impeachment lest it jeopardize swing-district Democrats in 2020,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes. President Trump “has decided to call her bluff and offer a choice—impeachment or bipartisan progress.”
“First lady Melania Trump made a special trip Wednesday to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, to meet with ‘wounded warriors’ and present a Purple Heart,” Katie Jerkovich reports for The Daily Caller. “I want to thank the service members I met today,” the First Lady said. “As each of them recovers, we are reminded of the cost of our country’s security. I am grateful.”
“A cadre of former top Obama administration figures and their allies in Congress have been working to amplify anti-Trump talking points issued by a senior Iranian regime official in what sources have described as an effort by Obama's pro-Iran echo chamber to drive a wedge between President Donald Trump and his national security team,” Adam Kredo writes in The Washington Free Beacon. Democrats are “doing all they can to subvert Trump, even if it means siding with the Iranian regime in the standoff.”
“Two illegal aliens, one who came to the United States in 2015 as part of a ‘family unit’ and the other unaccompanied in 2016, were released by the Prince George’s County Police Department after being charged with attempted first degree murder and other crimes. Upon release, they killed 14-year-old girl Ariana Funes-Diaz and dumped her body in a creek,” Katie Pavlich writes in Townhall. “Prince George's County, which contains Baltimore, is a ‘sanctuary’ for illegal aliens. Both are members of the extremely violent gang MS-13.”
Americans Feel Good About Economy and Give Trump Credit, CBS News Poll Says
“Most Americans remain confident about the U.S. economy and in their own financial situation,” CBS News reports. “Seven in 10 Americans say the economy is in good shape, including a quarter who say it is very good. Nearly all Republicans and most Democrats and independents share this view.”
The results under President Trump have drowned out the media and political spin about his Presidency: Today, 85 percent of Americans who rate the economy as good said the President’s policies are mostly or at least partially responsible for it. Click here to read more.
“Democrats are fuming that Don McGahn skipped a Congressional hearing on Tuesday . . . But Mr. McGahn has every constitutional right not to appear, and this isn’t a close legal call,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) “doesn’t expect to learn anything new. He wants a show. He wants to use Mr. McGahn as a prop to spend three hours claiming that Mr. Trump tried to obstruct the Mueller investigation. Yet Mr. Mueller wasn’t obstructed in any way, his copious report was released for all to see, and there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.”
“US employers are stepping on the accelerator — and that’s lifting average salaries and fueling record raises across many sectors. For the typical American worker, pay increases could soon surge past 4 percent or 5 percent for the year, according to labor experts,” John Aidan Byrne reports for the New York Post.
“Single-payer. Government-run. Government takeover. One-size-fits-all. Socialist. Each is an accurate description of Democrats’ preferred health-care scheme, proposed in the mislabeled ‘Medicare-for-All Act,’” Reps. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Greg Walden (R-OR) write in Fox News. “The more Americans learn, the further support sinks for their centralized government health-care system. It will bring delays in access to needed health care. The $32 trillion price tag is so massive it’s hard to wrap your head around.”
“In a new Hill-HarrisX survey, a majority of registered voters said they support a new Department of Justice inquiry into whether official procedures were followed when the FBI began examining allegations of connections between Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia,” Matthew Sheffield reports for The Hill. “Sixty-two percent of respondents to the May 17-18 survey said they support Attorney General William Barr's” actions—including nearly half of Democratic respondents.
Delaying Approval of New Trade Deal Hurts American Workers, Families and the Economy
“The U.S. will be losing out on more jobs, more customers for Made-in-America goods and a stronger economy unless the U.S. House of Representatives takes up the updated trade agreement with Mexico and Canada,” Reps. Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) write in The Hill.
“After years of stagnation America’s economy is growing 50 percent faster than earlier projected. Paychecks are rising, especially among blue-collar and low-income workers. America’s manufacturing is back. And jobs and investment are flowing back into the U.S. from overseas. Delaying USMCA means fewer economic benefits to hard working Americans.”

“Americans’ confidence in the U.S. job market is the highest in Gallup’s trend originating in 2001, with 71% in May saying now is a good time to find a quality job,” Lydia Saad reports for Gallup. “The longer-term picture shows that Americans' positive perceptions of both the economy and the job market are substantially improved today over the prior decade.”
“Comprehensive new state-level data from the National Association of Manufacturers shows the USMCA’s positive impact, and manufacturers are voicing their support for this deal,” Andrew Clark writes. “As manufacturers’ most critical partners, Canada and Mexico purchase one-fifth of the total value of U.S. manufacturing output – more than the next 11 countries combined. These exports support about 2 million American manufacturing jobs and 43,000 small- and medium-sized businesses.”
Last week, President Trump offered a blueprint for resolving a crisis that “has reduced the border to a mere speed bump for the masses clamoring to get in,” The Washington Times editorial board writes. “At a time when science can calculate the weight of every element in the known universe, down to the tiniest atom, official Washington cannot come up with an accurate number of illegal immigrants residing within the nation’s borders . . . Bringing order to immigration chaos will assure a better future for citizens and immigrants alike.”
“Attorney General Bill Barr traveled to El Salvador this week with the goal of protecting Americans from dangerous gang members crossing the border into our country,” Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) writes in Fox News. “Americans are victim to the violence emanating from the MS-13 gang’s base in El Salvador. In fact, MS-13 members in the U.S. often follow orders from gang leaders in the Central American nation.”

Why Americans lost faith in Washington
It’s little wonder why 77 percent of Americans across the political spectrum disapprove of Congress’ job performance, according to the latest survey from Gallup.
On January 3, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took over as Speaker of the House for the second time in her career. In the four and a half months since, Americans have gotten another close look at what career politicians do best: anything but solve real problems.
For more than two years, Congressional Democrats excused inaction by attacking President Donald J. Trump every day for a crime he did not commit. The Mueller Report—a 400-page document that cost American taxpayers at least $35 million—recommended no charges against the President. That should have ended the matter.
🎬 Press Secretary Sarah Sanders: “At some point . . . it’s time to move on.”
Instead, Democrats have a new obstruction strategy: weaponize the subpoena powers of Congress to fish for political ammunition to use against the Trump Administration.
It’s a cynical ploy and a dangerous precedent, but cynical ploys make for good TV drama. So while President Trump asks Congressional Democrats to set politics aside and work with him on infrastructure, immigration, stronger trade deals, and more, Democrat leaders know they can keep the media focused on political theater, not policy.
Washington loves the distraction tactic because it works in the short-term. The mainstream media always plays along, and it denies any accomplishments or progress that could risk making an opponent look good. The price tag—broken trust—comes later.
Here is the real cost of Washington’s never-ending obstruction drama:
Watch: Democrat leaders face a choice, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says
First Lady visits wounded warriors at Walter Reed
Yesterday, First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to spend time with wounded American service members.
She had the honor of presenting the Purple Heart to a wounded warrior recently injured in combat. The service member’s family was on hand to witness the moment. “I want to thank the service members I met today,” Mrs. Trump said. “As each of them recovers, we are reminded of the cost of our country’s security.”
Americans are grateful for that sacrifice, she added. “The President and I will always stand with our men and women in uniform.”

President Trump stands up for America’s farmers
Today, President Trump took more action to defend our Nation’s farming community. In the face of China’s years-long trade war on America, the President has authorized the Department of Agriculture to provide up to $16 billion to support America’s farmers.
“We’re taking swift action to remedy all of the injustice that’s been done over the years,” the President said today, and “will help keep our cherished farms thriving.”
See how President Trump is fighting harder for farmers than any president before.
Today, Democrat leaders chose the far left over America’s working families
President Donald J. Trump invited Democrat leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the White House today to discuss a bipartisan solution to fixing America's crumbling infrastructure. Congressional Democrats had other plans.
Something to share: Congress showed today why its approval rating is 20%
Far-left activists, both inside Congress and out, have made it clear they don’t want Democrats to work with President Trump to help govern. So before coming to the White House this morning, Speaker Pelosi changed her tune. Rather than talk about an opportunity for bipartisan leadership, she played to the party donors and base, lobbing a fresh conspiracy theory: “The President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”
Congressional Democrats spent more than $35 million on the Mueller report. It took 675 days, included nearly 3,000 subpoenas, and required 500 witness accounts. Despite being conducted by a far-from-unbiased legal team—one that has collectively donated at least 20 times more to Democrat as Republican candidates over the years—it found zero evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice. No charges were recommended for either.
There is no legal case against the President, in other words. All Democrats have left is a political one. In a democracy, that’s what elections are for. Democrat leaders might know this, but they’re powerless: Their activist base doesn’t want voters to have the last say.
The result is a string of stunts like the one Americans saw today. Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Schumer know they have to keep giving lip service to the real issues that working Americans care about—tax relief, jobs, high prescription drug prices, immigration, and so on—while only delivering on the agenda their base wants: obstruction and resistance.
President Trump wants bipartisan compromise because it’s the right thing to do for our country. Fortunately, he’s getting results either way. Today, 7 in 10 Americans rate the economy as good or very good. Of those, 85 percent say some or most of the credit goes to President Trump. Pay growth has “picked up sharply at the bottom half of the wage distribution,” a new report says, showing that working-class families are the ones seeing the biggest gains.
Those amazing results could be even better if Congressional Democrats chose to work with the President. And for that reason alone, it’s no surprise that they won’t.
Watch President Trump deliver a statement from the Rose Garden.

Now is the time for USMCA
Last November, President Donald J. Trump fulfilled one of his most important promises to voters when he joined leaders from both Canada and Mexico to sign the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), replacing the outdated NAFTA.
“In short, this is a model agreement that changes the trade landscape forever. And this is an agreement that, first and foremost, benefits working people,” the President said.
Reps. Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) explain that “the U.S. will be losing out on more jobs, more customers for Made-in-America goods and a stronger economy unless the U.S. House of Representatives takes up the updated trade agreement with Mexico and Canada.”
Yesterday, America’s leading manufacturing group upped the pressure on Congress to act. “Passage of this agreement is critical for U.S. manufacturing sector,” said Linda Dempsey, the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) vice president of international economic affairs. “Canada and Mexico are manufacturers’ most important partners.”
“USMCA passage is critical for manufacturers in every state,” according to a new comprehensive, state-by-state analysis by NAM. “Canada and Mexico purchase one-fifth of the total value of U.S. manufacturing output – more than the next 11 countries combined,” NAM’s Andrew Clark writes. “These exports support about 2 million American manufacturing jobs and 43,000 small- and medium-sized businesses.”
Vice President Mike Pence told workers in Jacksonville, Florida, yesterday that “we are not going to allow an outdated trade deal to hurt American manufacturers or American farmers anymore.” Under NAFTA, nations like China were able to game the system, shipping their products to Canada or Mexico—and then sending them into the United States duty-free. “Those days are over,” the Vice President said.
“We’re not going to let them undermine good-paying jobs that build the . . . American middle class in this country, or the middle class I grew up in.”
Reps. Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Steve Scalise (R-LA): “We must pass USMCA now.”
In the headlines: USMCA will boost the American economy and create jobs
President Trump hosts the Freely Associated States
President Trump welcomed the presidents of the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia to the Oval Office today—the first time all three leaders from the Freely Associated States have been hosted together at the White House by an American President.
In a joint statement with President Trump, the three leaders reaffirmed their common interest in a free, open, and prosperous Indo-Pacific region.
America shares a special relationship with these nations, dating back to our shared sacrifice during World War II. This partnership didn’t end with the war. Today, citizens from the Freely Associated States are permitted to serve in the U.S. military, with several hundred currently on active duty.
“We are confident our relationships will further our abiding mutual interests and remain a source of regional security, stability, and prosperity,” the four leaders said.
Read the statement from President Trump and leaders of the Freely Associated States.
