Thank You President Trump

The number of food stamp dependent Americans hit a six-year low in President Donald Trump’s first year in office, reflecting an improving economy and falling unemployment, according to a U.S. Agriculture Department report.

While 11 percent fewer Americans are relying on taxpayers to pay for their groceries, 13 Alabama counties remarkably witnessed food stamp use drop by a whopping 85 percent between January and May 2017 once work requirements were put in place for childless adults.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 says it all: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

Pat Buchanan’s Political Analysis

Columnist Pat Buchanan wonders what the future holds for the Republican Party. First, Judge Moore’s loss in ruby-red Alabama. Then, last Tuesday, Democrats captured a House seat in a Pennsylvania district Trump carried by 20 points.

The boost to the economy from the Republican tax cuts doesn’t seem to be getting traction. Buchanan writes, “The problem for Republicans may be found in a truism: ‘When the economy is poor, the economy is the issue. When the economy is good, something else is the issue.’”

Florida Muslim Teen Inspired to Kill

A 17-year-old Muslim teen named Corey Johnson watched violent jihadi propaganda videos and read the Quran at home to “give him courage to carry out his intentions” before he plotted to kill several people at a birthday sleepover in Jupiter, Florida, reports The Palm Beach Post.

After slitting the throat of one teen with a knife he brought with him to the home, Johnson tried to attack the mother six times, when her 13-year-old son Dane Bancroft ran to push him off his mother, enduring 32 stab wounds.

Thankfully, both the mother and the son will survive. The family has set up a Facebook fundraising page to help pay for Dane’s medical expenses which we have linked in our transcript today at

The Harvey Weinstein Effect

Last October, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to expel Harvey Weinstein 10 days after the New York Times first reported on his history of sexual harassment.

Barack Obama and Billy Graham Revealed Today!

Ever since former President Barack Obama met with the late Billy Graham in his log cabin home in Asheville, North Carolina in 2010, many have wondered about the details of that encounter besides Graham giving him a Bible and praying with him.

Well, according to The Christian Post, Billy Graham’s embargoed archival collections, which are said to detail his personal relationships with former presidents, including Obama, and other major figures, like Pope John II, are now set to go public today at the Billy Graham Center Archives at Wheaton College in Illinois.

Franklin Graham on Stephen Hawking’s Atheism

And finally, after the atheist scientist Stephen Hawking died last week, Evangelist Franklin Graham made a profound comment.

He said, “I wish I could have asked Mr. Hawking who he thought designed the human brain. The designers at HP, Apple, Dell, or Lenovo have developed amazing computers, but none come even close to the amazing capabilities of the human mind. Who do you think designed the human brain? The Master Designer — God Himself. I wish Stephen Hawking could have seen the simple truth that God is the Creator of the universe he loved to study and everything in it.”

Nehemiah 9:6 says, “You alone are the Lord. You have made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them and the heavenly host bows down before You.”
