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.

Jerry Brown says officer's death not related to Sanctuary City

It is beyond me how someone can be so idiotic and depraved. And it is beyond me how voters can be represented by someone unless they themselves are truly being represented accurately. Jerry Brown suggests that before the laws surrounding whether local law enforcement could not coordinate, communicate, and work with ICE had gone into effect that ICE could have prevented the officer's murder by an illegal immigrant. Well Jerry, guess your laws will be an obstacle now towards any future prevention of unnecessary murders!

 

The left suggests that we should not be divided by political lines. Yet what previous Democrats believed on border security no longer fits the left's narrative today. The left is so politically bent and motivated that regardless of what is common sense, moral, or correct automatically is opposed. The left is an opposition that has no other platform other than to oppose the Right.

Outgoing California Gov. Jerry Brown said the death of police officer Ronil Singh has "nothing" to do with the state's "sanctuary" status.

He probably would not have made this statement if he never had a majority of depraved leftist willing to believe him. What keeps this idiot in office ?

It would eventually double or triple the Democrat's power. Too many RINOs anyway.

William,
re:  "Jerry Brown suggests that before the laws surrounding whether local law enforcement could not coordinate, communicate, and work with ICE had gone into effect that ICE could have prevented the officer's murder..." 

 

I'm confused.   That sounds like Brown is saying that before the sanctuary city policies, that ICE could have prevented the officer's murder.  Shouldn't that be that ICE couldn't have prevented it anyway?  What am I missing?

Wasn't there a movie or something where California just kind of broke off into the ocean?

I don't remember a movie about that but I do remember that it was making headlines when I was stationed at Camp Pendleton in the sixties. They wanted to blame it on an unusually active earthquakes taking place .

No, you got it right. Brown is suggesting that ICE could of prevented the murder before the laws which says local law enforcement cannot cooperate with ICE.

 

Let that sink in.

    • Top Obama White House Lawyer Made False Statements To DOJ About Manafort-Related Work

      By Chuck Ross - The Justice Department is alleging that the former Obama White House general counsel made ‘false and misleading’ statements regarding consulting work done for Ukraine. Greg Craig was lead partner for the law firm Skadden Arps on its Ukraine work, which was done in partnership with Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.  Skadden Arps agreed Thursday to settle with the Justice Department by registering as a foreign agent of Ukraine and paying a $4.6 million fine. Craig’s fate remains uncertain. The former general counsel for President Obama made “false and misleading statements” to the Justice Department regarding work he did for the Ukrainian government that has come under scrutiny in the special counsel’s probe. Greg Craig’s alleged false statements were revealed in a settlement announced Thursday by the Justice Department. The agency announced it was settling with Craig’s former firm, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on behalf of Ukraine beginning in 2012. Skadden Arps agreed to register retroactively with the Justice Department as a foreign agent of Ukraine and to pay a $4.6 million fine, the same amount that the firm was paid for its consulting work. Craig, who left Skadden Arps in April 2018, is not identified by name in the Justice Department announcement, but he has previously been identified as the lead Skadden Arps partner who worked on its Ukraine account. Other clues from the Justice Department settlement point to Craig as the lead partner referenced in case. As part of the settlement, Skadden Arps acknowledged that it acted on behalf of the Ukrainian government “by contributing to a public relations campaign directed at select members of the U.S. news media in 2012.” Craig and others at Skadden Arps helped promote a report that raised questions about Yulia Tymoshenko, a former Ukrainian prime minister who was seen as a foe to Viktor Yanukovych, who served as prime minister through 2014. The Justice Department says that it contacted Skadden Arps in 2012 and 2013 about registering under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) after the law firm released a report that defended Tymoshenko’s imprisonment. But the firm ended up not registering under FARA based on false assurances provided by Skadden Arps’ partner. “A partner then at Skadden made false and misleading statements to the FARA [Foreign Agents Registration Act] Unit, which led it to conclude in 2013 that the firm was not obligated to register under FARA,” the Justice Department said. “The facts, when uncovered, showed that Skadden was indeed required to register in 2012, and, under the Agreement, it will do so retroactively.” The Skadden Arps media outreach centered mostly on a report about Tymoshenko that was finalized in December 2012. According to the Justice Department, the Skadden Arps lead partner, seemingly Craig, contacted a major national newspaper on Dec. 12, 2012, to provide a preview of the report as well as a quotation. The news outlet appears to be The New York Times, which quoted Craig in an article laying out Skadden Arps’ report regarding Tymoshenko. The Skadden Arps report determined that some of Tymoshenko’s legal rights were violated during her trial in Ukraine. But it ultimately sided against Tymoshenko and with Yanukovych’s administration. Craig, who contacted the newspaper, is quoted in the article, saying that “We leave to others the question of whether this prosecution was politically motivated.” “Our assignment was to look at the evidence in the record and determine whether the trial was fair.” According to the Justice Department, the Skadden Arps partner provided misleading statements about the dissemination of the Tymoshenko report and the interactions with the media. “In both written and oral responses to the FARA Unit between February 6, 2013, and October 11, 2013, Skadden, in reliance on the lead partner, made false and misleading statements including, among other things, that Skadden provided a copy of the Report only in response to requests from the media and spoke to the media to correct misinformation about the report that the media was already reporting,” the Justice Department said. The agency also asserted that the Skadden Arps’ partner’s “pre-release outreach” to the journalist “was consistent with Ukraine’s media strategy for the Report.” That strategy involved “leaking the Report prior to its official release so as to ‘effectively set the agenda for subsequent coverage,’” according to the DOJ. It is unclear whether Craig faces any legal jeopardy in the case or whether he concurs with the Skadden Arps settlement. The government’s agreement with Skadden Arps explicitly states that the settlement does not protect “current or former partners” from criminal liability. CNN reported on Sept. 15, 2018, that the Justice Department was weighing charges against Craig, who left the Obama White House on Jan. 3, 2010. An attorney for Craig responded, “no comment” to an inquiry by TheDCNF. The settlement closes one chapter of the ongoing saga over the Ukraine lobbying effort. Two other lobbying firms, the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs, are also reportedly the subject of an investigation into the Ukraine work. Manafort has pleaded guilty in the special counsel’s investigation to working as an unregistered foreign agent for Ukraine. He was convicted on Aug. 21, 2018, for money laundering and fraud related to money he made on the Ukrainian consulting gig.

    • DOJ Official Bruce Ohr Acknowledged His Dossier-Related Contacts Looked Suspicious

      By Chuck Ross - Justice Department official Bruce Ohr admitted to Congress last August that his contacts with the author of the Steele dossier and the FBI could be seen as “troubling” to outside observers The DOJ lawyer served as a back channel between the FBI and Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier  Republican lawmakers have questioned Ohr’s role in the dossier saga Justice Department official Bruce Ohr acknowledged in congressional testimony last year that his interactions with dossier author Christopher Steele and the FBI could appear suspicious to outside observers. “You just called the names of two people, neither of whom I think are with the Bureau, one who was mentioned unfavorably in an [Inspector General] report, both of whom had, at least from my standpoint, an unprecedented amount of animus or bias towards one of the candidates, and you are getting information from someone hired by the DNC and funneling it to the lead agent on the Russia investigation,” one lawmaker said to Ohr during his Aug. 28, 2018 interview, referring to former FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. “Can you possibly see how that might be troubling to people?” “Yes,” Ohr replied, according to portions of a transcript published by The Epoch Times on Monday. Ohr’s admission would seem to support Republican interest in the DOJ lawyer’s dossier-related interactions. GOP lawmakers have focused on Ohr’s meetings with Steele as well as his wife’s work for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired Steele and was paid by Democrats to investigate Donald Trump. Ohr also acknowledged that his wife’s work for Fusion could be interpreted as “bias,” according to a transcript of the interview. In the interview, Ohr was grilled about his meetings with Steele and his role as a back channel between the dossier author and FBI. He was also asked about his interactions in 2016 with FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Strzok, and Page, all of whom have either resigned or been fired from the FBI under clouds of suspicion. Strzok, who led the FBI’s investigation of possible Trump-Russia collusion, was fired in August 2018    because of anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with Page. Ohr met or spoke with Steele, a former MI6 officer, around 60 times from July 30, 2016 through November 2017. After at least 12 of those interactions, he briefed an FBI agent on his conversations. Republicans have focused on Ohr’s role in the matter, partly because Ohr’s wife, Nellie, also happened to be working for Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele. The Ohrs met with Steele in Washington, D.C. on July 30, 2016 to discuss Steele’s investigation into Trump. Days after the meeting, Ohr briefed McCabe and Page at FBI headquarters. He also met with FBI officials, including Strzok, who served as deputy chief of counterintelligence who oversaw the Russia probe. Ohr also met on Aug. 22, 2016 and Dec. 10, 2016 with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Simpson provided Ohr with information about possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia. Ohr also testified that he believed that Simpson provided him a copy of the Steele dossier during the December meeting. Republicans have questioned why Steele and Simpson would use Ohr to pass information related to the Trump investigation. By the time he first met with Ohr, Steele had already been in contact with a Rome-based FBI official named Michael Gaeta. The FBI used Ohr as a back channel to Steele after the bureau cut ties with the former spy just before thee 2016 election. The bureau cut off contact with Steele on Nov. 1, 2016 after learning that he had provided information to journalists. Ohr testified that Strzok and Page introduced him to FBI agent Joseph Pientka on Nov. 21, 2016. Pientka would serve as Ohr’s main FBI contact. He passed information from Ohr to Strzok. Ohr testified that though he informed McCabe and others at the FBI about his wife’s work for Fusion, he did not inform his boss, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, about his side gig.

    • My rather grisly take on the death of JonBenet.

      JonBenet Ramsay died at the age of six during the night following Christmas Day 1996.  Her body was found in the basement of her family home in Boulder the following day.  A lengthy ransom note was found in the house a few hours earlier.   Suspicion soon fell on her family, partly because of their untypical behaviour, and partly because of a lack of evidence for any break-in to the house.  It has been suggested that either a parent or her 9yo brother killed her - probably not intentionally - and that her murder was then staged as a cover-up.   The problems with this include the lack of evidence for any family member killing her, and the fact that in 2003 the DNA of an unknown male was found on the clothes worn by JonBenet at the murder scene.  Also, the ransom note - although written on paper owned by JonBenet's mother with one of her pens - was not identified with the handwriting of any family member.  Nor were any fingerprints found on it.   The Boulder police are still working on the intruder theory, but there are problems with that as well.  The supposed entry window had undisturbed cobwebs, and it is hard to see how an intruder would waste time writing a lengthy ransom note before vanishing without trace.   Having considered the evidence, I have reached the rather scary conclusion that JonBenet was sodomised and then murdered by a man who was allowed into the house by a member of the family - quite possibly with the intention of letting him abuse her.  It seems to tick almost every box.   The only box it perhaps does not tick is that a neighbour heard a child scream at around 5am (I think), followed by a sound consistent with someone leaving a house but not by the front door.   JonBenet's father and brother are both still alive, and can now sue me for libel.
