Republicans Celebrate Tax Reform Passage as Focus Turns to Must-Pass Spending Bill


CAPITOL HILL – More take-home pay will soon hit the paychecks of millions of American workers. It’s just a presidential signature away now that both houses of Congress passed the tax reform legislation.

Republican lawmakers spirits are high after they successfully handed President Trump his biggest legislative victory to date with overhauling the tax code.

“Hasn’t been done in 34 years, but actually hasn’t been done because we broke every record,” Trump said. “It’s the largest I always say the most massive. The largest tax cut in the history of our country and reform but tax cut.”

Taxpayers Funding Terrorism: How the P.A. Uses Millions of US Dollars for ‘Pay-to-Slay’


Palestinian Authority Online Incitement, Photo, Courtesy PMWJERUSALEM, Israel – A House subcommittee unanimously passed a bill that paves the way for cutting U.S. funding to the Palestinian Authority if it doesn’t stop paying salaries to terrorists who kill Israelis – what some call “pay to slay.”

What would you say if you found out your tax dollars were indirectly going to pay Palestinian Arab terrorists to murder Israeli Jews and others? That’s just what’s happening.

“Since 2003, it has been Palestinian law to reward Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails with a monthly paycheck. Palestinian leadership also pays the families of Palestinian prisoners and suicide bombers. These policies incentivize terrorism,” Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., said…. read more

GOP to Repeal Johnson Amendment’s Muzzle on Pastors Through Tax Reform


House Republicans have finally unveiled their new tax reform bill. Despite some delays, Republican leadership insists they are still on schedule to have the bill on President Trump’s desk by the end of the year.

“Our goal in the House is to get this bill out of the House, passed on the floor by Thanksgiving,” House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers told CBN News.

The hold-up centered on a proposal to end the federal income deduction for state and local taxes utilized by high tax states like New York and California. GOP lawmakers in those states are hesitant to support a plan that fails to preserve that deduction.

McMorris Rodgers told CBN News they delayed the release in order to get a bill that everyone in their conference can rally behind…. read more

Faith Leaders Pray for Trump in Oval Office, Enjoy ‘Open Door’ at White House


prayingoverpotusAbout two dozen evangelical leaders spontaneously prayed with President Trump in the Oval Office Monday during a day-long “listening session” with the Office of Public Liaison.

Johnnie Moore, a former senior vice-president at Liberty University, posted pictures of the prayer time Tuesday night on social media but emphasized that it was more than just a photo op.

“It shows a substantive relationship between the evangelical community and this administration,” he told CBN News.

Moore said faith leaders are enjoying frequent access to officials throughout the Trump administration and explained: “We enjoy an open door, not just in the Eisenhower Building, but in the West Wing.”<!–more–>

opinion: What a breath of fresh air to see our president praying unto our Lord Jesus the Christ. God heard our prayers concerning a new president and he answered by placing Trump in that position. With that position comes an enormous amount of responsibility. With that being said remember evil has not sat down and shut-up. It is being as LOUD as it can possibly be, however do you see that we are being given 4 years of a reprieve.

Joel 2:14 NLT Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the LORD your God as before.

What will you do during this time?

President Trump Ends Long Tradition of Celebrating Ramadan in White House


Barack Obama, whose father was Muslim, enjoyed celebrating his Iftar dinner each year.

President Trump just ended a longtime White House tradition and skipped the Ramadan celebration this year.

For the first time in two decades the White House will not celebrate an Iftar Dinner on its grounds. Allahu Akbar. The Washington Post reported:

Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of breaking of the fast.”

For the first time in nearly two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. In recent weeks, several former White House staff members told The Post they would usually begin planning an iftar “months in advance” and didn’t anticipate the Trump White House could pull something off before the end of Ramadan…. read more
