Pakistani court denied bail to Christian
A Pakistani court denied bail to a 57-year-old Christian named Anwar Masih who has been imprisoned in Pakistan on false blasphemy charges, reports International Christian Concern.
Matthew 7:15 warns, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”
Masih’s wife and his daughter, who married a Muslim man in 2017, both converted to Islam away from Christianity. This created tension between Masih’s wife and daughter and the rest of Masih’s family, who remained devoutly Christian.
Masih’s wife enlisted local police to mediate between the two religious sides of the family. When the police became involved, they chose to launch a legal assault against Masih.
Despite the injustice of the situation, Masih’s son asserted that he and his Christian family members remain committed to Jesus, even to death.
Pakistan is the 8th worst nation for the persecution of Christians, according to Open Doors.
FBI seized Mike Lindell’s phone
Lindell announced on his live-streamed show, “The Lindell Report,” that he and a travel buddy had pulled into the drive-through after a fishing trip when his car was surrounded by FBI agents.
LINDELL: “We go through a Hardee’s drive thru. They take the order. She says, ‘Pull ahead.’ They had to make the order. We pull ahead, and a car comes perpendicular, and parks a little ways in front of us. I’ve been around the block, and I said to my buddy, ‘That’s either a bad guy or it’s FBI.
“Then another car, at the same time, pulls up and pins us in here, to our right side. Now, remember, I got the wall to the left. I just passed the order thing where I can only get out about three feet. And then another guy comes flying up. He was pinning in the back of the car.
“I opened my door and I say, ‘Who are you?’ He says, ‘We’re FBI.’ I say, ‘Show me your badges!’”
Lindell said the agents asked him about voting machines in Colorado and the embattled Colorado Mesa County clerk Tina Peters, who oversees the county’s elections.
Finally, the lead FBI agent explained to Mike Lindell why they were there.
LINDELL: “Then he goes, ‘I got some bad news.’ And I go, ‘Okay, here it comes.’ He goes, ‘We’re taking your cell phone. We have a warrant for your cell phone. I go, ‘No.’ I said, ‘I run five companies off that. I don’t have a computer. My hearing aids run off this. Everything runs off my phone. And then I said, ‘If I don’t give you it to you, will you arrest me then?’”
Lindell summarized what he has maintained about the corruption of both the voting machines and many Democrat officials in swing states.
LINDELL: “Jenna Griswold, one of the most evil people this world has ever seen, the [Democrat] Secretary of State of Colorado, has done nothing but collude with [the makers of the electronic voting machines] Dominion – Dominion’s headquarters is in Colorado — to hurt our country, to take our country down, to hurt the people of Colorado.
“Now, they’re hurting MyPillow; they’re hurting my employees. I don’t have all the data I lost on my phone. They wouldn’t let me do a backup, download, anything.”
Lindell’s phone was subpoenaed as part of a federal grand jury investigation in Colorado.
The incident comes as allies of former President Donald Trump are being targeted by the FBI amid investigations.
Lindell is an advocate for election integrity and has been vocal about allegations of widespread voting irregularities and election fraud during the November 2020 general election.
Bracing for a railroad strike
Car buyers might not get the vehicle they want on time, commuter rail lines could see service disrupted, and shipments from everything from oil to livestock feed could be snarled, reports The Associated Press.
Those are just a few of the wide-ranging impacts a walkout by U.S. rail workers would have on the country’s industries and economy. A strike could happen if the railroads and unions can’t settle their differences before today’s early Friday walkout deadline.
