DISGRACEFUL: Biden Regime Delays Paychecks to National Guard Members for Christmas After Announcing Another $45 Billion Giveaway to Ukraine

From thegatewaypundit.com

Earlier this week, Senate Republicans, under the leadership of Mitch McConnell, came to an agreement with Democrats on a $1.7 trillion spending bill to avoid a government shutdown.

The bill gives another $44.9 billion to Ukraine — where it disappears into the ether.

According to Roll Call, “The package includes $858 billion in defense spending, a nearly 10 percent increase over the previous fiscal year, and $787 billion in nondefense spending, close to an 8 percent increase. It also would provide roughly $85 billion in supplemental funding for Ukraine and disaster relief.” 

But despite the price tag, the bill does not secure the open US border with Mexico.

And the bill does little to help working Americans or their families.

Nationa Guard members were informed this week that their check will not come in until after Christmas.

$45 billion for the Ukrainian military – But no Christmas presents for National Guardsmen here at home.

Hello gents, if you have been tracking, the pay
issue that has been plaguing the unit and the
division as well. This info is from the CSM.
Good afternoon CSsM
You are probably already tracking there are pay
issues. Many Soldiers were due pay today. They
received LES but did not receive the funds.
Here’s what we know.
1) The issue is Nation wide
2) The issue seems to be at DFAS and is related to
the CR
3) NGB was not made aware of the issue or
“decision” prior to today
4) NGB is currently working the issue with DFAS
time now
5) we would hope the issue is rectified today or
tomorrow.
This is unfortunate and can cause serious issues
and aggravation across the formation which are
understandable. Especially 2 days before
Christmas.
I think the messaging is important that it’s
understood the issues are at the highest levels and
that everyone in the Division and State are pushing
for immediate resolution.
This is a message from the BDE CSM.

And, for the record, Trump was right click HERE

Christian Persecution in Africa Grew More Intense and Widespread in 2022

From breitbart.com

African Christians endured another grim year in 2022, especially in turbulent Somalia and Nigeria, where Islamist gangs such as Boko Haram and the Islamic State wiped out entire villages and Christian farmers clashed with herdsmen from the Fulani tribe. 

According to the annual World Watch List of the 50 most dangerous countries to be Christian, four of the ten worst countries are African: Somalia ranks third, followed by Libya, Eritrea, and Nigeria. “Islamic oppression” was listed as the biggest threat in all but Eritrea, which offered a little variety with “dictatorial paranoia.”

Activist group Open Doors, which compiles the World Watch List each year, explained that Eritrea’s rulers permit only three heavily policed Christian denominations: Orthodox, Catholic, and Lutheran. All others are brutally persecuted as potential threats to state power, with punishments for outlaw clergy ranging from years in solitary confinement to forced military service.

Open Doors said Eritrea earned its unlovely nickname of “Africa’s North Korea” by imposing heavy surveillance on its citizens, especially Christians who do not belong to the three officially recognized denominations. 

Somalia, the most dangerous African country for Christians, is also dangerous for just about everyone else due to constant attacks from Islamist terrorist groups, led by the infamous al-Shabaab.

Al-Shabaab controls a good deal of Somali territory outright, and it ruthlessly oppresses Christian residents of villages under its dominion. Outside of its territory, al-Shabaab treats Christians as priority targets for terrorism, especially those who converted from Islam. The terrorist group has a penchant for murdering humanitarian aid workers after accusing them of trying to convert Muslims to Christianity.

The U.S. State Department’s 2020 report on religious freedom noted that the nominal Somali central government does not control a great deal of land outside the capital city of Mogadishu, and some of the quasi- or fully independent provinces are extremely repressive. 

Officials in independent Somaliland, for example, arrested a Christian couple in October for proselytizing their religion, and since the two are converts from Islam, there were calls from Muslim leaders to prosecute them for “apostasy,” which can be punished by execution or torture under sharia law. 

“Whoever dares to spread Christianity in this region should be fully aware that they won’t escape the hand of the law enforcement officers and that the spread of Christianity will not be allowed and is considered blasphemy,” a Somaliland police official declared after the couple, who have an infant child, was arrested. The prisoners escaped harsher punishment by effectively being exiled from Somaliland and sent to Mogadishu.

The State Department noted that Somalia’s tattered central government technically guarantees the freedom to practice any religion but forbids spreading any, except the official state religion, Islam. Muslims are legally barred from converting to any other religion. The government pushes “Islamic values” for all school students, supposedly in an effort to counter al-Shabaab’s savage ideology, but Somali religious education has been heavily penetrated by extremist doctrines such as Salafism, which infuses the ideology of groups like al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Salafism is not, to put it mildly, friendly to other religions.

Libya has an even more fractured and divided political system, and Christians are oppressed in just about every part of it. Christian migrant workers are harassed or detained as they pass through the numerous checkpoints maintained by the patchwork of factions that control Libya, and detainees are sometimes handed off to human traffickers. 

As in Somalia, Libyan Muslims who convert to Christianity are accused of “apostasy,” and that can carry the death sentence. This is not just a matter of vigilantes and sharia courts; Libya’s legal code includes a decade-old requirement for apostates to be executed if they refuse to repent. One of Libya’s two feuding national governments attempted to invalidate it, along with other old laws, but the Libyan Supreme Court rejected this nullification, so the law is still technically in effect.

As the U.S. State Department has observed, Libya also has sharia vigilante groups, the worst of which are Salafists who regard practicing any other faith as an attack against Islam. 

Nigeria, which entered the World Watch List top 10 last year, is among the most violentlyoppressive nations in the world – second only to Pakistan, in Open Doors’ estimation, and it actually outranked Pakistan this year in the total number of Christians killed for their faith.

Besides suffering constant attacks from Islamist terrorists such as Boko Haram and its offshoot, the Islamic State – West Africa Province (ISWAP), which explicitly seek to expunge Christianity from Nigeria – local Christians are frequently targeted for kidnapping, the most explosive growth industry in the country. 

Kidnapping for ransom is a booming business that brings considerable revenue to Boko Haram and ISWAP, but plenty of less notorious bandit gangs are taking hostages and seeking big payoffs. The Nigerian government has been criticized for paying ransoms too readily because it wishes to avoid the embarrassment of dead hostages or failed rescue attempts, a policy that has made hostages the top cash crop. 

Vulnerable Christians are popular targets for kidnappers, as in the case of a Catholic priest and seminarian who were seized in August for a six-figure ransom. Gangsters evidently assume Christian organizations can muster the funds to pay ransoms if the Nigerian government does not. Boko Haram and ISWAP both have a predilection for abductingChristian schoolgirls and forcibly converting them to Islam.

Nigerian Christians living in the country’s middle region additionally must contend with the Fulani, a culture of jihadist herdsmen who murdered dozens of Christians last year and destroyed their homes and churches. 

Human rights activists say the Fulani killed more Christians than Boko Haram or ISWAP over the past few years. Christian groups accuse Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari of turning a blind eye to the campaign of terror because he is a Fulani himself.

The most recent Fulani atrocity occurred in December, when a Christian couple and their 17-year-old daughter were hacked to death with machetes on their farm. The couple’s other daughter, age 20, barely survived the attack and was hospitalized with deep cuts all over her body.

A rising threat in Nigeria is the Ansaru, another offshoot of Boko Haram that broke away because its leaders thought Boko Haram was not doing enough to purge Christianity from Nigeria. 

Ansaru is an extremely violent ally of al-Qaeda, with well-trained fighters and a boundless appetite for heavy weapons provided by the illicit arms trade. It also runs a “hearts and minds” radicalization campaign to win support from Muslim communities by offering them protection against bandits and even delivering humanitarian supplies to villages neglected by the central government. Security analysts warned in 2022 that Ansaru is growing beyond Nigeria’s borders and spreading through the Sahel region.

Other hotspots identified by Open Doors included Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of Congo, both of which are battling savage Islamist insurgencies that target Christian villages for terror attacks.

Christian groups say persecution is growing more intense and widespread across Africa, and world governments, the media, and the United Nations are not doing enough to deal with the problem – indeed, they rarely even acknowledge Christians are the most widely and viciously persecuted group in Africa.

The Biden administration has been trying to develop its relationship with the Nigerian government, so it angered religious groups by delisting Nigeria in November 2021 as a country that violates religious freedom and by downplaying the threat of the Fulani jihadists in 2022. African leaders notorious for indulging Christian persecution and violating human rights were invited to the Biden administration’s “U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit” in mid-December. SOURCE

The last paragraph of this breitbart article really speaks volumes about the EVIL (demonically EVIL) regime who inhabit the People’s House in our country. If I didn’t believe that Jesus is coming soon to gather us away from this WICKED place – I would absolutely lose my mind.

But because I know that He is coming and that He sees our grief in being here; I am encouraged and my heart fills with joy that I am a child of God! HALLELUJAH!

Russia Plots New Oil Production Cut To Starve the West of Fuel

From wnd.com

Moscow may cut its daily crude oil output by up to 700,000 barrels

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said Thursday that Moscow may cut its daily crude oil output by up to 700,000 barrels in response to the Biden administration’s and other wealthy nations’ move to target Russian energy profits, according to Bloomberg.

On Dec. 5, the Group of Seven developed democracies (G7) placed a $60 per barrel price cap on Russian oil to simultaneously reduce Russian energy revenues that are funding its invasion of Ukraine and bring down global fuel prices. During an appearance on Russian state TV, Novak said that the nation could cut crude production in early 2023 by 500,000 to 700,000 barrels per day, equal to roughly five to six percent of what the nation is currently pumping, Bloomberg reported.

“We are ready to partially cut our production early next year,” Novak said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV channel. “Right now we’d rather take a risk of a production cut than stick to the policy of selling in line with the threshold,” he stated, adding that the potential cuts would be “insignificant.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters Thursday that he would sign a decree to deploy “preventative measures” aimed at countering the West’s price cap, according to Bloomberg. Oil prices have risen over the past two weeks with the price of Brent crude, the leading oil price benchmark, hitting $83 per barrel on Friday.

Putin told reporters in early December that he would consider cutting oil production in response to the price cap and warnedthat Europe would suffer a harsh winter due to the cap’s ability to exacerbate soaring energy prices. Fuel prices could rise once again as Russian production cuts combined with recovering Chinese oil demand could squeeze global crude supplies, Bloomberg reported.

The Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C. did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

So, who is the bad guy? Zelenskyy? Putin? Neither one is what I would call a good guy. But with Putin, we know with whom we are dealing.

He’s a former KGB thug. Perhaps he is still a thug. But with Zelenskyy, the world is nearly worshipping this guy’s feet.

Yeah, this guy who fights along side Nazi batallions. Think about it……..

‘One Million Moms’ Urges American Girl to Pull Book Promoting Puberty Blockers to Children

THIS IS SATANIC

From christianpost.com

American Girl dolls are seen during American Girl celebrates debut of World By Us and 35th Anniversary with fashion event in partnership with Harlem’s Fashion Row on Sept. 23, 2021, at American Girl Place in New York City. | Ilya S. Savenok/Getty Images for American Girl

An organization of Christian mothers that regularly launches campaigns against questionable content is calling on American Girl to discontinue its distribution of a book that promotes puberty blockers for girls questioning their gender identity. 

The conservative activist group One Million Moms has launched a pressure campaign urging the doll company to discontinue selling the book A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image and encourages people to stop purchasing from American Girl or its parent company, Mattel.

One Million Moms highlights how the book seemingly directs girls to organizations that will help them transition if the adults in their lives don’t support their decision. The group also accused the doll brand of attempting to “brainwash” girls by promoting the idea of identifying as the opposite sex. 

“This is disgusting! American Girl is encouraging children to go behind their parents’ backs with life-altering issues,” the campaign website reads. 

As The Christian Post reported, a section in the book about gender identity advises girls to talk with a doctor about wearing clothes or using pronouns to resemble the opposite sex. If a girl has not experienced puberty yet, then the book claims a doctor may provide “medicine” to delay bodily changes. 

“Parts of your body may make you feel uncomfortable and you may want to change the way you look. That’s totally OK,” one excerpt of the book reads. “You can appreciate your body for everything it allows you to experience and still want to change certain things about it.”

The “medicine” promoted in the book likely alludes to puberty-blocking drugs, which the U.S. government has not approved for the purpose that the book describes. In addition, the American College of Pediatricians has warned that temporary use of puberty-blocking drugs has “been associated with and may be the cause of many serious permanent side effects including osteoporosis, mood disorders, seizures, cognitive impairment and, when combined with cross-sex hormones, sterility.”

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also issued a warning in July, stating that gonadotropin-releasing hormone drugs can cause brain swelling and vision loss in children who take them, citing six cases of children between ages 5 and 12 who exhibited “a plausible association between GnRH agonist use and pseudotumor cerebri.”

In a December op-ed published by CP,  Anne Young, an American mother of two young daughters, noted that the book’s author, Mel Hammond, recognizes Dr. Carly Guss on her website as a person who helped “bring this book to life.”

Guss is an adolescent medicine specialist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The doctor advocated for using puberty blockers on gender dysphoric children in a Nov. 1 article published in the JAMA Pediatrics medical journal.

She argues that puberty blockers, in some cases, eliminate “the need for subsequent surgery.” Guss contends that the use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone “delays the development of irreversible pubertal changes and, in some cases, eliminates the need for subsequent surgery.” 

This is not the first time that One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association, has taken issue with the content distributed by the American Girl brand. 

In 2021, the group launched an online campaign after Mattel named the 10-year-old Kira Bailey doll from Michigan the “2021 Girl of the Year” in December. The doll came with a book titled Kira Down Under, which depicts Kira visiting an animal sanctuary in Australia operated by her aunts, who are in a same-sex marriage. 

The book also describes how the aunts married after the laws surrounding same-sex marriage changed in 2017. 

One Million Moms launched a petition in response, which garnered over 20,000 signatures. The group called on parents to prevent their daughters from seeing the doll to avoid “a premature conversation that she is far too young to understand.”

“American Girl could have chosen another storyline or characters to write about and remained neutral in the culture war,” One Million Moms stated. “American Girl is attempting to desensitize our youth by featuring a storyline with two lesbian aunts.”

Brethren, it is so clear that Satan is coming for our children – and has been for a long time. But he knows that his days are short and he is determined to take as many souls with him to hell as he can!

It is becoming overwhelming to keep up with his tactics. We need to get on our knees and pray like we have never prayed before!
