Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Trump’s Cash Advantage For 2020 Has Democrats Worried

Recommended Posts

Donald Trump success

President Donald Trump’s huge cash reserves for the 2020 election has the Democratic Party concerned, with its leader asking supporters for donations to catch up.

The Federal Election Commission revealed in October that Trump has over $100 million cash on hand for the 2020 presidential race — an amount no president has raised in his first term since Ronald Reagan. Trump — who prepared for 2020 almost immediately after the end of the last presidential election — raised more than $18 million in the last quarter via his campaigning committee and through fundraising ventures with the Republican National Committee.

The Republican president’s huge war chest is prompting Democrats to solicit for more donations.

“Now, we face our greatest challenge yet: Taking back the White,” Democratic Party Chairman Tom Perez wrote in a fundraising email to supporters. “Donald Trump already has years of campaigning under his belt and $100 million in the bank. It’s our job to build a strong, strategic party infrastructure that will give our Democratic nominee the best shot at taking him on and winning back the White House.”

The advantage of incumbency goes a long way in U.S. politics. The last president to lose re-election was George H. W. Bush in 1992. As the Democratic Party waits for whomever will be their 2020 nominee, Trump is already building is campaign war chest and beefing up his staff.

“We’re counting on you to help build the infrastructure to put a Democrat in the White House and to help Democrats win across the board in 2020,” Perez continued, asking supporters to give a $3-dollar donation by Monday for their end-of-year fundraising deadline.

As for who could emerge as the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, a high number of possible candidates fill the list.

Top contenders include California Sen. Kamala Harris, former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, failed Texas senatorial candidate Robert O’Rourke, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker. Despite the election being two years away, signs of Democratic infighting are already emerging.

Supporters of Bernie Sanders and Robert “Beto O’Rourke have been in an escalating war of words, and Biden has shown signs of annoyance with former President Barack Obama’s embrace of other potential candidates.

    • Democrats Attack Trump’s Plan To Bring Back Thousands Of Federal Workers

      By Tim Pearce - House Democrats are questioning the legality of a Department of the Interior (DOI) decision to call back thousands of furloughed employees to work on offshore drilling permits. A trio of Democrats sent a letter to the acting Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt Wednesday, alleging that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) broke federal law by allowing some federal employees to begin working again. “This is an outrageous step, and the justifications provided in the BOEM contingency plan … are farcical and make it clear that the administration cares only about the impacts on its favorite industry and not about workers, their families, and ordinary families,” the letter said. Democratic Reps. Raúl Grijalva of Arizona, Betty McCollum of Minnesota, and Alan Lowenthal of California joined Grijalva in signing the letter. Grijalva chairs the House Committee on Natural Resources, which oversees the DOI. BOEM changed its shutdown plan Jan. 8 to bring back employees to work on seismic permits and offshore lease sales because leaving the agency understaffed threatened to “negatively impact the Treasury and negatively impact investment in the U.S. Offshore Gulf of Mexico,” BOEM said according to the letter. The Democrats demanded BOEM reverse course. If not, Bernhardt would likely be called in front of the House Natural Resources Committee, to defend the legality of BOEM’s actions, which “appear to be in violation of the Antideficiency Act,” according to the letter. Thousands of other federal workers were called back to work Tuesday as agencies expand their definitions of “essential” personnel. “We are recalling inspectors and engineers to perform duties to ensure continuous operational safety of the entire national airspace,” a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson told Politico. “We proactively conduct risk assessment, and we have determined that after three weeks it is appropriate to recall inspectors and engineers.” Aviation, food, drug and medical inspectors were some of the 50,000 federal employees called off of furlough and back to their positions. If the government shutdown stretches to Jan. 28, about 46,000 Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees return to their jobs for tax-filing season.
