Word to Governors: Stop Practicing Medicine – VCY America

Date:  April 16, 2020  
Host:  Jim Schneider  
Guest:  Dr. Jane Orient
MP3 | Order

Governors around the nation are assuming broad powers in order to shut down or extend shut-downs/stay-at-home orders all in the name of coronavirus protection. Now troubling reports have been coming out about individuals in the health care industry that are being laid off while many people who have medical needs for screening, exams, treatments and procedures are being turned away.

The guest on this Crosstalk wants to see doctors do what they do best and is telling governors to stand down and to stop practicing medicine.

Dr. Jane Orient is a medical doctor and executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Orient began by communicating her concern about patients that can’t get medical care because their doctors are forbidden to give it.  Governors may claim that essential care can be provided, but she knows of physicians who are being harassed by state medical boards for doing things like fixing a compound fracture or a ruptured tendon.  These are obviously not life threatening but nonetheless can have painful and disabling consequences if not taken care of right away. This is why physician practices may permanently fold because their revenue is way down but their expenses keep increasing.

So who determines the definition of ‘essential?’  It’s whoever is on the medical board and that is someone who is not responsible to the patient if things go wrong.

Dr. Orient noted that some of these boards have physicians, while half or more of others may be comprised of non-physicians.  The executive director is usually a lawyer, while the members of the board may actually have little to say about decisions that are made.  The lawyers and bureaucrats that make up the staff determines what the board members will be told.

She questioned the status given to COVID-19.  For example, she explained that people with infectious diseases are all around us throughout the year and doctor’s offices are to have standard precautions in place to reduce the infection risk.  As an example, she contrasted how we’re handling COVID-19 vs. AIDS. When the AIDS epidemic broke out you wouldn’t refuse treatment, even dental treatment that creates the spraying of body fluids because there was the risk of stigmatizing the patient.  Now doctors aren’t allowed to offer treatment, at least not without the risk that you’ll have to come up before the medical board and have your license removed.

Then there’s the limitations placed on the prescribing of FDA approved drugs to treat or even prevent COVID-19.  Discussion on this point focused on anti-malaria drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine, drugs that have been around for 70 years.  Allegedly the governor of Nevada is hoarding these drugs for the prison system while at the same time prohibiting their use for anything other than Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Interestingly, doctors are up against not only state governors, but also the American Medical Association.  Find out why, where ‘big pharma’ fits into all of this and much more on this edition of Crosstalk.

Dr. Judy Mikovits (American Researcher) on Coronavirus – Freedoms Phoenix

Article Image

Checkout this very interesting interview with Dr. Judy Mikovits ( whose working relationship with Tony Fauci started in 1984 ) who is very experienced in studying virus’ and even worked on helping virus’ get gain of function. Some of the things she exposes ( directly or indirectly ) in this very informative interview.

1) How the origin of the disease could not have come from the Wuhan fish market.

2) How the way a virus is introduced is by direct injection ( through vaccines ) .

3) She does not deny that the virus is contagious but is actually spread by people who are vaccinated.

4) How the testing for the corona virus is very flawed and in fact a huge fraud is being perpetrated on people.

5) How those that received flu shots are more succeptible to the effects of the virus

6) How those that are wearing masks are actually PROMOTING the disease from spreading.

7) How vaccines in general ( through retrovirus and retrovirus contaminates in the vaccines ) actually promote disease including cancer. ( in fact Dr Mitkovits herself was infected with XMRV and developed a natural immunity to it )

8) What the real agenda behind the push for mandatory vaccination is .

9) How the fifth generation internet ties into making this plandemic even more deadly.

10) How the answer to healing from this virus is though natural medicine. The cure has already been given by what can be found in nature. All of these these natural remedies were created by God. In fact all medicines come from the study of plants.

Get ready to get a serious education from Dr Mikovits. Or you could just ignore this video and continue to mindlessly obey the voices that come from big government agencies like the WHO and the CDC in which case you are being conditioned to anxiously await a solution from a vaccine that uses “digital certificates” developed by a man who is an open proponent of depopulation. Mr Gates and Mt Fauci whether they know it or not are playing their part in a satanic agenda to try and destroy ALL human life on earth. The good news is that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of God will raise a standard against him. Yes that standard is one of the many things that we who have accepted Jesus can trust in. Lastly I would like to point out that both Fauci and Gates owe their very existence to a God who created all life on earth. This is a testimony to the goodness and righteousness of God who allows His rain to fall on the just and the unjust.

Facebook using WHO to censor debate over virus – WND

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (video screenshot)

While President Trump suspends U.S. funding to the World Health Organization because of its mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, Facebook is using the WHO as its authoritative source in an effort to censor discussion on its platform regarding the virus.

Facebook, in an annoucement Thursday, said its new policy will seek to eliminate “harmful misinformation” regarding the outbreak from the platform.

The social media giant, which boasts some 2 billion members, said 350 million people already have clicked through to WHO content.

Guy Rosen, Facebook vice president of integrity, said anyone confronted with “harmful misinformation” on Facebook will be redirected to WHO content listing “myths” about the coronavirus outbreak.

“We’re going to start showing messages in News Feed to people who have liked, reacted or commented on harmful misinformation about COVID-19 that we have since removed,” he said. “These messages will connect people to COVID-19 myths debunked by the WHO including ones we’ve removed from our platform for leading to imminent physical harm.”

Rosen said Facebook wants “to connect people who may have interacted with harmful misinformation about the virus with the truth from authoritative sources in case they see or hear these claims again off of Facebook.”

“People will start seeing these messages in the coming weeks,” he said.

Trump is withholding the $400 million the U.S. is scheduled to contribute to WHO pending an investigation of the U.N. agency’s handling of the pandemic.

“We want to look into the World Health Organization because they really called it wrong,” Trump said. “They missed the call, they could have called it months earlier, they would have known, they should have known, and they probably did know.”

WHO’s director general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreysus, criticized Trump’s decision in January to restrict travel from China, saying it would “have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit.”

Tedros, meanwhile, praised the communist government’s response. The WHO parroted in mid-January the comunist regime’s insistence that there was “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus,” despite contrary evidence.

Tedros said the Chinese Communist Party had set “a new standard for outbreak control.”

Later, the WHO chief, overruling the objections of agency colleagues, delayed declaring a public-health emergency.

These Are The “Fake News” Sites That Told You ‘Distrusting China Over Coronavirus Was Dangerous’ | Zero Hedge

Here is a timely reminder of the scores of fake news outlets that dismissed questions as ‘baseless conspiracy theories’…

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

Numerous virology experts are now on record as saying it cannot be dismissed, and multiple government and intelligence sources have confirmed that investigations are underway into the possibility that the coronavirus leaked from an unsafe Wuhan bio-lab and China lied about the true scale of the outbreak.

And so in light of that, here is a timely reminder of the scores of fake news outlets that for weeks and months dismissed both notions as a ‘baseless conspiracy theories’.

Remember, these sources (this is only a small selection of what is out there), to a varying degree in their dismissals, effectively bolstered Chinese state media and government insistences that questions over the safety of the lab were ‘dangerous’.

  • Brannon Howse: April 16, 2020 | Worldview Weekend

    Guest: Former CIA Operations Officer Clare Lopez. Topic: Before he interviewed Clare, Brannon plays an audio clip of John Piper on Family Life Today with Bob Lepin. Listen as Piper describes how he is afraid he is not a Christian and not sure he will go to heaven. His works based neo-Calvinism gospel gives him no assurance of salvation because it is all based on works. Poor Piper does not understand the preservation of the saints or the difference between justification and sanctification and glorification. It was Piper himself that declared a few years ago that for final salvation one must slay sin and pursue holiness. This is 100% works. If Piper is living in such fear and hopelessness, then what do you think he has done to the average person he has brainwashed into his false gospel, socialism and extreme Calvinism for the past 40 plus years? The Apostle Paul warned us of such a gospel and of such men. Topic: Coronavirus has revealed neo-evangelicals, neo-Calvinists, hyper-Calvinists & most leaders of evangelicalism are empty suits & foolish men, as described in the Bible. They mocked for years those who warned of what is happening now & where we are going. They have no understanding on many levels of what is happening today and what is yet to unfold. Avoid them per Romans 16:17. Many of them have called names of those who are involved in Christian activism & involved in warning of what is now here. Yet they put social justice warriors on their church platform and tell the world how important these social justice warriors are to the kingdom of God. NO! Their friends that they praise and recommend to us are in fact building the kingdom of Antichrist and the globalist system that will rob you of your freedoms, business, and income. Wake up Christians! The wolves have been deceiving you and fleecing you spiritually and financially. Most of all, they are preaching a false gospel, and a works gospel. Topic: Clare joins us to discuss what we were discussing in January which was the likelihood that the Coronavirus came from the level four bio lab in Wuhan, China. Fox News and other outlets were reporting such as a conspiracy and yet now the mainstream media is now wanting to talk about this possibility. Topic: Clare gives a list of the various types of warfare that China has launched on America in the new way of warfare. Topic: We take your calls.

    Are the Gospels Eyewitness Accounts? (Video)

    J. Warner Wallace answers the following objection: “Christians like to call the Gospels ‘eyewitness accounts,’ but why should we take them seriously as ‘eyewitness’ testimony when the authors don’t say anything about being eyewitnesses and the accounts clearly contain descriptions of events (like the virgin conception, birth narratives, and private moments of Jesus) that the authors could not have personally seen?”

    4 Reasons We Should Accept the Gospels As Eyewitness Accounts

    New York Times Reporter’s Defense Of Biden Sex Allegation Coverage Roundly Mocked — The Gateway Pundit

    When a woman claimed President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kananaugh had inappropriately touch her 35 years before at a high school party, the New York Times was all over the story.

    But when a woman claimed that former vice president Joe Biden had sexually assaulted her when she was 29 and he was 51, The Times waited 19 days to do a story — and then mostly dismissed the woman’s claims.

    That made a Twitter user with the name Jim McCarthy curious, so he asked two Times reporters Kate Kelly and Robin Pogrebin – who co-wrote a book about Kavanaugh — why the paper treated the two stories differently.

    “It appears you both have remained silent on the Biden sexual harassment story, even when your top editor contrasted it with NYT’s Kavanaugh coverage,” McCarthy asked. “Why is that?”

    Kelly answered, saying that claim was “not true” and praising The Times coverage on the Biden allegation.

    Then she said: “And as our executive editor @deanbaquet pointed out in a recent interview with my colleague @benyt, Kavanaugh ‘was a live, ongoing story that had become the biggest political story in the country. It was just a different news judgment moment.’”

    Uh, what? Biden is running for president — that’s the biggest political story in the country, bigger, one could argue, than a Supreme Court nominee.

    Baquet had given an interview to Times reporter Ben Smith and was asked why the two stories were handled differently.

    “Kavanaugh was already in a public forum in a large way. Kavanaugh’s status as a Supreme Court justice was in question because of a very serious allegation. And when I say in a public way, I don’t mean in the public way of Tara Reade’s. If you ask the average person in America, they didn’t know about the Tara Reade case. So I thought in that case, if The New York Times was going to introduce this to readers, we needed to introduce it with some reporting and perspective. Kavanaugh was in a very different situation,” Baquet said. “It was a live, ongoing story that had become the biggest political story in the country. It was just a different news judgment moment,” Baquet said.

    Reade says in 1993, Biden pinned her against a wall, reached under her skirt and pushed his fingers inside her. When she pulled away, Reade says Biden told her, “Come on, man, I heard you liked me.”

    “He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing,” Reade said in a podcast. “There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.”

    Meanwhile, Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, could not remember when her alleged groping took place, and all her friends who were at the same party said they didn’t know what she was talking about. Still, Kavanaugh was dragged through the mud for weeks, with Democrats screaming, “I believe her.”

    Kelly was roundly mocked on Twitter for her bizarre answer.

    “The only reason the Biden story isn’t ‘the biggest political story in the country’ is because reporters are actively ignoring it and looking for opportunities to write it off,” one user wrote.

    CNN On Biden Allegations: ‘Some Presidential Candidate Did Something’ — The Babylon Bee

    ATLANTA, GA—Many criticized CNN for breathlessly covering allegations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh throughout the then-SCOTUS candidate’s confirmation process but remaining silent on accusations against presidential candidate Joe Biden.

    To address these concerns, CNN has finally posted an article on Tara Reade’s allegations, the headline reading “Some presidential candidate did something.”

    “Some presidential candidate did something,” the article reads, “but what difference, at this point, does it make? Besides, it’s not really harassment — it’s democratic harassment. His body, his choice.” The article then includes a long list of Joe Biden’s accomplishments and reminds readers that if they were to do actual journalism on the accusations against Joe Biden, the “Bad Orange Man” might win again this year. “So before you rush to judgment on this old creepy guy, remember that he’s our old creepy guy.”

    “In conclusion, vote for Joe Biden.”

    CNN quickly pulled the article at the request of the DNC.

    “FUGLY” Outlook For The Dow? Not Until This Is Taken Out!!! — Kimble Charting Solutions

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell nearly 40 percent during the March market crash. But it seemed to recover from a familiar technical price level.

    In today’s chart, we highlight a key confluence of support where the Dow Industrials reversed higher off of… and why it needs to hold.

    The March low took place right at the lower edge of the 40-year up-trend support channel, formed by each (1). This support level was fortified by another trend line that is marked by the 2000 and 2007 market tops at (2). Needless to say, the bulls need this support to continue to hold, which it has so far.

    The bottom line, the long-term trend DID NOT break of late.

    If 40-year support breaks at (2), odds are high, things get FUGLY for the Dow and the broad markets!!!

    Prepare Yourself For The One World ‘Together At Home’ Hollywood Freak Show Brought To You By Global Citizen And The World Health Organization — Now The End Begins

    When a group calling themselves Global Citizen wants to bring you a One World ‘Together At Home’ concert headlined by a New Age Illuminati satanist like Lady Gaga, it’s not just the end times, it is the end of times.

    All of this is taken straight from the inside of an end times novel like ‘Left Behind’, and the forces behind it could not be more obvious about their intentions. Take a long, hard look at the image of Lady Gaga in the main graphic, are you getting the message their sending you? By their own words, it is a One World concert whose headliner is a New Age Illuminati satanist, and it’s being funded by a group called Global Citizen. Dude…srsly? And just so you know, the Lady Gaga pic was taken from official One World ‘Together At Home’ branding. Yep.

    “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Revelation 13:1,2 (KJB)

    Regular readers of Now The End Begins are already well aware of the Global Citizen people, they came on our end times radar last year. You will recall we told that Global Citizen is controlling billions of dollars to promote a One World Agenda and last year are used Hollywood satanists like John Legend as frontman on an Illuminati All-Seeing Eye stage set. Yeah, those people. Is anyone surprised to find the evil World Health Organization on the same bill with Global Citizen for the One World concert this weekend? We’re not. I am fully expecting to see multiple pitches from the performers prompting them to take the vaccine when it is ready, and to accept the digital identification from ID2020. Maybe a cameo or two from Bill Gates. The One World ‘Together At Home’ New World Order music fest will be broadcast this Saturday evening April 18th starting at 8:00 pM EST.

    Careful observers will note in the video below that the main icon for Global Citizen is a satanically-inspired swirling red circle, the main image in their marketing is a completely red-covered planet, and the top and bottom open hands over a home imagery is giving your the “as above, so below” found in Illuminati Hollywood and Freemasonry. Take another look at Lady Gaga, a long hard look. Get the message yet?

    What is One World: Together At Home?

    The UN and the World Health Organization (WHO) asked Global Citizen to support their COVID-19 response by bringing the world together through music and inspiring everyone to take action. With an exceptional group of artists, Global Citizen is now launching One World: Together At Home.

    One World: Together At Home is a historic, cross-platform global special that will celebrate and support healthcare workers and others on the frontlines, and the World Health Organization (WHO) as they lead the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The broadcast will include leading global health experts alongside exciting performances by the world’s top artists and comedians. READ MORE

    Most Millennials Completely Unaffected By Orders To Stay In Parents’ Home, Not Work — The Babylon Bee

    U.S.—A new report has found that over 97% of millennials have been completely unaffected by government orders to stay home and not go to work.

    Many millennials weren’t even aware of the orders since they were already living in their parents’ basements and not working any kind of job.

    “Oh, there’s a lockdown? Hadn’t heard,” said Milly Stanson of Piker’s Square, Oregon. “I was just doing my thing like usual, chillin’ in pop’s basement. I’ve been ‘between jobs’ for a while now. Hadn’t realized we weren’t supposed to go to work. Cool!”

    Millennials have even started a petition for the lockdown to continue as long as possible and were particularly excited to learn that everyone was getting free money from the government. “It’s kind of like little green participation trophies.”

    Boomers were affected but only a little bit, since they tend to go into the office at 9 and leave at 11 most days to go golfing anyway.

    Is God sending us a message? — Triablogue

    Thus far I haven’t offered a theological interpretation of the pandemic. That’s because I don’t have the answer. It can bring discredit on the Christian faith when spiritual leaders presume to interpret providential disasters. Unbelievers, not without reason, don’t think spiritual leaders are privy to God’s rationale, even if there was a God, so they think spiritual leaders are just exploiting the situation. Despite the fact that they don’t know what they’re talking about, they take advantage of tragedy to score theological points. Not that I’m a spiritual leader. I’m not that high on the pecking order. But I’m just stating a general principle. The exercise can fuel the cynicism of unbelievers–or even believers.
    That said, there’s value in running through a list of potential explanations, and assessing their pros and cons. We just need to avoid dogmatism.
    A . Provoking questions
    Just being forced to stop and ask if God sending us/me a message is a useful exercise–especially for the spiritually indifferent. Shakes them out of their complacency.
    B. A sign
    1. A prima facie difficulty with saying the pandemic is a divine sign is that, in general, there needs to be agreement on what a sign means for it to be a sign. How can it send a message unless we understand the significance of the sign? Yet one problem with the pandemic is that it’s open to more than one theological interpretation.  So the whole notion ambiguous signaling seems to contradict to the purpose of a sign. (Mind you, these needn’t all be mutually exclusive explanations.)
    2. Perhaps, though, that’s prematurely dismissive. Suppose I drive to a park. When I return to my car, after jogging, there’s a handwritten sign on my windshield which says “I saw what you did Friday!”
    Now that’s ambiguous on different levels:
    i) Maybe it’s just a prank by somebody who picked out my car at random. He never saw me do anything on Friday.
    ii) Or the sign might be a veiled threat. Perhaps he did see me do something wrong or illegal. Maybe he’s going to turn me in! Or more sinister yet, maybe he’s coming after me!
    iii) Perhaps I don’t remember doing anything wrong on Friday. But the sign forces me to jog my memory. Maybe I unwittingly did something to tick him off.
    iv) Or maybe I don’t remember, not because I did nothing wrong, but because I’m a dishonest person for whom wrongdoing is so routine that’s all a blur. Yes, I did something wrong on Friday, and the day before, and the day after.
    I’m used to getting away with it. But this time I ticked off the wrong person. Someone who will exact revenge. This time my dishonesty caught up with me.
    v) Or maybe I’m generally honest, but Friday was the exception. I did something wrong or illegal. Unbeknownst to me, there was a witness.
    Now the sign can be ambiguous by design. The ominous sign is intended to instill fear and anxiety. Make me uncertain about what the future holds for me. Throw me off balance.
    C. Judgment
    1. In Scripture, some natural evils are divine judgments. Yet in Scripture, some natural evils have a different purpose. They’re not punitive.
    2. A problem with the judicial interpretation is that the pandemic is so indiscriminate. When it falls on the righteous and wicked alike, that makes it harder to recognize as divine judgment rather than some morally random event.
    Mind you, collective guilt isn’t a necessary condition for collective punishment. As I often say, due to fact that human beings are social creatures, the innocent are often collateral damage in collective punishment. They aren’t the targets.
    3. But another problem with the judicial interpretation is the message it sends. Divine judgment can have deterrent value when recognized as divine judgment. But unbelievers don’t think God exists, and for them, the pandemic is just one more item in the problem of evil.
    4. Another problem with the judicial interpretation is the timing. Why now? Is the human race wickeder than it was 5 or 10 or 15 years ago?
    Perhaps, though, God needs to bring judgment on the human race every so often because, if he never he punishes evil prior to the Final Judgment, then evil will spiral out of control. So even if the timing is somewhat arbitrary, periodic judgment is necessary to keep evil from getting completely out of hand.
    But if that’s the reason, it raises the question of how natural disasters like the pandemic are a check on evil. Will that make the wicked mend their ways?
    D. Warning
    A problem with this interpretation is that given all the kinds of natural disasters and causes of death, what makes the pandemic a distinctive divine warning? Of course, we could treat them all as warnings and in sense we should, but practical speaking, the impact is diluted by their range and frequency. Like the judicial interpretation, it seems to be too indiscriminate to function as a clear-cut warning rather than a morally random event.
    E. Reminder
    The pandemic is undoubtedly a reminder of our vulnerability. Despite the fact that human technology becomes exponentially more powerful, nature is incomparably more powerful than human technology. Our technology can’t protect us from many natural disasters. We’re at the mercy of natural disasters beyond our ken or control. Nature will always be more powerful than technology because technology depends on natural forces and natural processes.
    That’s a salutary reminder to people who avoid thinking about death or the meaning of life. It shakes them up.
    F. Disruption
    The pandemic is very disruptive to the status quo. While that’s bad in some ways, it’s good in other ways. Over time, power naturally concentrates in the hands of evil. The disruptive impact of the pandemic forces the wicked to fall back, regroup, and rebuild. They may not be able to restore the status quo. So it slows them down. Impedes their dominance. Buys the righteous some breathing room.
    If so, that’s not a case of God sending a message, but has a different purpose.

    Papadopoulos Reacts to Declassification of Spygate Transcripts: “Durham Knows” Who Sent Clinton Errand Boy to Meet with Me in London — The Gateway Pundit

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham declassified and released Carter Page FISA documents and transcripts of George Papadopoulos and the FBI spies.

    Today, the Committee released three categories of material.

    • Declassified DOJ materials related to the Crossfire Hurricane operation.
    • Timeline of correspondence sent or received by Chairman Graham and Committee activity regarding the FISA abuse investigation.
    • Corrective actions taken by DOJ and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court as a result of the FISA abuse investigation.

    Trump’s 2016 foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos reacted to the declassification and release of the Spygate transcripts.

    The most important question that still needs to be answered is who sent Australian diplomat to the UK Alexander Downer to meet with George Papadopoulos in the Spring of 2016?

    Recall, Alexander Downer’s meeting with George Papadopoulos in a London pub in May of 2016 is was sparked the entire “Trump-Russia” probe.

    Downer tipped off the FBI in a memorandum he wrote following his meeting with Papadopoulos.

    Downer told the FBI that Papadopoulos claimed Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton and they might release damaging information on her before election day.

    Who sent Downer to meet with Papadopoulos?

    “Durham knows,” said Papadopoulos in a tweet Thursday evening.

    PAPADOPOULOS: Senator Graham in his letter to Australia made it clear that Alexander Downer was instructed to meet with me. Mueller’s team acknowledged he was recording me after I reported him to them (the irony). The key question is, who put the Clinton errand boy up to it? Durham knows

    Big Declassification Begins – Documents from Senate Judiciary Committee – Including Bucket Five Documents and Less Redacted Carter Page FISA… — The Last Refuge

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has just released a bunch of documents, some of which were on the original 2018 congressional request for declassification.  The documents are considerably interesting; perhaps even EXPLOSIVE.

    [Start Digging Here]

    The documents include more Papadopoulos transcripts from wired conversations with FBI confidential human source Stefan Halper; and also for the first time less redacted version of all three Carter Page FISA applications.  It’s going to take some time to go through this.

    The declassification and release includes some seriously interesting documents the DOJ submitted to the FISA court, as far back as July 2018, which completely destroy the prior claims made by Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, James Baker, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and their very vocal media and Lawfare defenders.   Here’s one example:

    Lisa Page testified to congress, and claimed in media, that the FBI never had any contact with the Steele dossier material until September 2016.  However, the DOJ directly tells the FISA court that Chris Steele was funneling his information to the FBI in June 2016.

    Not only did Lisa Page perjure herself in her testimony to congress; but ironically the DOJ notified the FISC of the issues with Chris Steele (and his compromised contacts with the FBI officials) in July 2018, that’s before Lisa Page started making her media appearances.

    Obviously Lisa Page did not expect this information to come out. It shows she was lying, and/or she never knew the truthful DOJ information to the FISA Court had taken place.  This is just the beginning… there’s lots of stuff in the release.  [SEE HERE]

    There is a lot of new information, explosive information, within this declassification series of documents.  CTH will highlight in smaller bites and articles as we can discover and share them…. However, if you are going to review on your own, and I hope you do, feel free to share any significant findings in the comment section and we’ll take a closer look.

    No doubt this is coming out as a result of Richard “Ric” Grenell in the position of DNI so he can declassify the documents the Deep Staters have attempted to keep hidden.

    April 16th The D. L. Moody Year Book

    Prepared as a bride, adorned for her husband.—Revelation 21:2.

    THERE are constant sounds around us that we cannot hear, and the sky is studded with bright worlds that our eyes have never seen. Little as we know about this bright and radiant land, there are glimpses of its beauty that come to us now and then.

    Perhaps nothing but the shortness of our range of sight keeps us from seeing the celestial gates all open to us, and nothing but the deafness of our ears prevents our hearing the joyful ringing of the bells of heaven.[1]

    April—16 The Poor Man’s Evening Portion

    Having loosed the pains of death; because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.—Acts 2:24.

    My soul! thou hast been in contemplation to the tomb of Jesus this morning, and seen the place where the Lord lay; now sit down, and ponder over what this blessed scripture saith, that “the pains of death were loosened, because it was not possible for Jesus to be detained a prisoner by it.” And if there were no other scripture but this one in proof of Christ’s Godhead, this in itself would be unanswerable; for it could be nothing but the Godhead of his person which made it impossible. It was this which, from the union of the manhood with the Godhead, preserved his soul from sin, and his body from corruption! for though the human nature that Christ took was subject to all the sinless infirmities of nature, and to feel hunger, weariness, and the like, to the full, being part of the curse on the fall, which he came to bear and do away, yet was he not left to the infirmities of what we, in our fallen state, are exposed to, and often sink under. Sweet thought to look to the tomb of Jesus with! Here, as oft as we contemplate the spot, we may say; Here Christ hath lain down, to teach his followers to lie down. But here Christ could not be detained: his body was not subject to corruption. “Thou wilt not leave his soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” But may it not be added also, on another account, that the pains of death could not hold Christ; forasmuch as God’s justice being fully satisfied by the offering of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all, there could be no detention of the prisoner when the debt was paid. The Lord Jesus did not, for he needed not, go down to hell for the purpose of receiving there the punishment our sins deserve, and which, by suffering in our stead and room, he did away, his sufferings were fully commensurate upon earth; and it is not the place, but the degree and nature of punishment, that makes an equivalent on the score of paying. His capability of suffering, and the extremity of what he endured during his agony in the garden, and on the cross, (not to mention a whole life of sorrows, in being all along acquainted with grief,) these were the full cup of trembling which Jesus drank, and completely adequate it was, or he would not have said upon the cross, “It is finished.” Neither was it necessary that the Redeemer should “long endure” the sufferings due to sin, as the sinner’s Surety. Here also his capability of sustaining much in a little space plainly proves, that when all the vials of divine wrath were poured out upon his sacred head, when the whole was emptied, they could not again be filled. Though had not Jesus died “the just for the unjust, to bring us to God,” the second death (which, out of Christ, is the sinner’s due) must be an eternal death, because the vessels of wrath fitted for destruction are only fitted for, and capable of receiving misery by portions, which, never being fully poured out, are consequently never finished. But not so with him who stood the sinner’s surety. He could, and did receive at once, in life and death, the whole of the punishment due to sin; and therefore, he it is of whom the Holy Ghost speaks, “All thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.” (Psalm 42:7.) Precious Lord! while I think of these things, and my whole soul is going forth in sorrow at the contemplation of those sufferings of thine for my salvation, grant me to feel at the same time the blessedness of thy redemption, and my interest in it, since “by thy stripes I am healed.”[1]

    April 16, 2020 Evening Verse Of The Day

    6:9 The “doorposts” (mezuzot, Heb.) eventually became small reeds or cylinders containing parchment, known individually today as the “mezuzah,” which was fixed on the right-hand doorpost of every room in the house.[1]


    6:9 The doorposts of Israel’s houses and their city gates must be identified as those dedicated to covenant compliance by the affixing of the law to them as well. Small metal boxes known as (Hb) mezuzah are to this day attached to doorways of Jewish homes to signify the commitment of their inhabitants to Judaism. These also contain Scripture portions (vv. 4–9; 11:13–21).[2]


    9 The term מְזוּזֹת (mezûzōt, “doorframes”) literally means “doorposts” and occurs in seventeen passages for the side posts of a city gate, door of a building, or window. By the Second Temple period many Jews were taking this command literally and eventually transferred the significance of a מְזוּזָה (mezûzâ) from the doorpost itself to the passages affixed to the doorpost. In Jewish tradition, the mezuzah consists of a glass or metal receptacle that contains a piece of parchment on which certain words from Deuteronomy (6:4–9 and 11:13–21) are written, traditionally in twenty-two lines (L. Rabinowitz, “Mezuzah,” EncJud, 11:1475). The parchment is rolled up and inserted in the receptacle so that the word שַׁדַּי (šadday), written on the back of the parchment, is visible through a small aperture. One of the caves at Qumran yielded a mezuzah parchment that contained the Hebrew text of Deuteronomy 10:12–11:21 (DJD 3 [1962], 158–61). Customarily, a mezuzah is fixed to the outer right hand doorpost at the entrance to every dwelling room of a house.[3]
