ATLANTA, Georgia, December 5, 2016 | TruthPR.com | --  Dr. Ben Carson has accepted what turns out to be another unconventional cabinet position offer from President-elect Donald Trump; that of HUD Secretary.  Dr. Carson wants to "make a significant contribution particularly by strengthening communities that are in need." He has said: "We have much work to do in enhancing every aspect of our nation and ensuring that our nation’s housing needs are met." In light of all of this, I'm still watching, thinking and praying... At age 65 I've been dreaming of retirement. In the midst of that dream, I'm now considering that the President-elect and many of his silver haired appointees must have been dreaming of resting too at some point. Many of them have lived on this earth at least six or seven decades. Yet, they threw their hats in the ring with bigger dreams for a better world, a better quality of life for everyone [born and unborn]. Moses and Aaron were 80 and 83 when God sent them before Pharaoh. Apostle Paul was also no spring chicken at the height of his ministry... If there's anything to be learned in these history making moments, it's that age is relative in the spiritual theme of things. God uses the young and old for His Divine Plans.  My dad, Rev. AD King, and my uncle, Rev. MLK, were both 39 when they were martyred in the 20th century Civil Rights Movement. Lord Jesus was around 33 at the time of His sacrificial crucifixion and resurrection. Yet as it's already been pointed out, God also uses the aged in the "Big Picture." There's an old song... We’ll Understand It Better By and By... Honestly, many of us don't know what's around the corner [although God's genuine prophets have some divine insight; and even the soothsayers are trying to understand]. One thing is for sure; we need to keep praying.  "Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5   ### Request an Interview with Dr. Alveda King here.

 ATLANTA, GA, November 8, 2016 | TruthPR.com | - Uppermost in our hearts and prayers today should be the reality that America is in God's hands. In a few hours we will know the outcome of this election  Last week during the furor and fray of the election, while praying that division and damage would not permanently mar relationships between family members, church members, friends, co-workers and communities, I clearly "heard" these words: "Brace yourselves." Prayerfully, as we continue to pray for the best we are preparing for the outcome, come what may. As I write this report, I'm getting flashbacks from earth's heroes, military captains and even starship commanders from many favorite films; all saying: "Prepare for impact!" Now it's almost as if I can hear my grandfather Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr.'s sermon as he assured us during the 20th century Civil Rights Movement that God would be with us, even as we were "Coming in on Broken Pieces." “…Some on boards… some on broken pieces… So it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.” Acts 27:44 (KJV) Let’s pray for America and brace ourselves, remembering to vote for life in all elections. Vote today if you haven't voted yet. Be a voice and not an echo.Finally, let’s be encouraged by the words of Apostle Paul as he was inspired by God's Holy Spirit in Colossians 1:20-29 (MSG): “... The broken and dislocated pieces of the universe … get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his [Jesus Christ's] death, his blood that poured down from the Cross… Don’t walk away from a gift like that! …Stay grounded… not …distracted or diverted... There's a lot of suffering to be entered into in this world - the kind of suffering Christ takes on... This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time… now it's out in the open. God wanted everyone... to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you; therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory… That is the substance of our Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less.” ### Request an Interview

ATLANTA, Geo., November 2, 2016 | TruthPR.com | -- While Christian leaders are still taking sides in the current elections there is yet a non-partisan place in the spirit where we can speak justice and mercy to all, including to all candidates. Open letters are useful from various vantage points. I've signed a few myself. For example, this was released by leaders who favor Sec. Clinton. This was released by leaders who favor Mr. Trump. I released this video yesterday: Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn            We need help. Speaking prophetically: Consider Vashti and Esther: Two women, living in a system of female oppression in a harem. When married to the king, they responded to a crisis from two vantage points. We learn from Vashti that indignation without prayer ends in short-circuited justice. Vashti responded with emotions. Esther prayed and sought divine solutions, and won justice for herself and her people. Consider Sarah and Hagar: A wife and concubine in competition started the longest family feud in history. While both of their sons by Abraham received God's blessing, the battle over being the bloodline for the earthly entry of the Messiah has caused a rift that needs the healing power of Agape. A Civil Rights Lens: Consider Michelle and Hillary: As the daughter of former slaves and a daughter of former slave owners, they embrace the pro- abortion agenda. It's no coincidence that they are married to two of America's most powerful icons.   "I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood." MLK (sons and daughters/humanhood - One Blood/Acts 17:26) Yet how can the dream survive if we murder the children? As we connect the dots, racism, reproductive genocide, poverty and sexual perversion are common enemies that must be defeated. In this election cycle we are coming full circle, facing a deep wound in the wombs of the women of America. The Barren and Post-Abortive Woman, Vashti and Hagar must be healed; and Queen Esther and Sarah must fast and pray as America returns to God.  "Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate one will be more than the children of her who is married," says the Lord. – Isaiah 54 "Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called... Isaiah 54 The struggle now is to rise above the emotional fray and pray according to this excerpt from Charisma Magazine: [We as] "Christians are not given the option of letting their [our] disagreement with their [our] political leaders prevent [us] them from praying for those leaders. The apostle Peter wrote that believers are to "submit yourselves to every human authority for the Lord's sake, whether it be to the king, as supreme, or to governors, as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and to praise those who do right. ... Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king" (1 Pet. 2:13-14, 17). Similarly, Paul wrote to Timothy, "Therefore I exhort first of all that you make supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings for everyone, for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty, for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior" (1 Tim. 2:1-3). "For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Easter 4:14 Where are the prophetic voices that rise above politics? The generations now and ahead are hanging in the balance: "All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. If anyone stirs up strife, it is not from me; whoever stirs up strife with you shall fall because of you." Isaiah 54 The struggle continues. With repentance; forgiveness one to another and for ourselves; and faith, Agape Love, we shall overcome. Pray for America.

  November 2, 2016 | TruthPR.com | - Florida is home to over 1.5 million veterans, with a significant number residing here along the Space Coast. Our veterans know firsthand the challenges facing our military and understand the need for strong, decisive leadership from our Commander-in- Chief. Unfortunately, over the last eight years, the United States has been lacking the leadership we need to keep our country safe and advance our interests around the world. Though our military remains stalwart, it is seriously stretched. Under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Russia and China are emphasizing their military and cyber capabilities while acting increasingly assertive in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific. Iran and North Korea are advancing toward nuclear weapons with sophisticated ballistic missile capabilities. And ISIS and other Islamist extremists now pose a serious threat to Western Europe and even the U.S. homeland. Yet while these dangers have mounted, the Obama-Clinton Administration has presided over record declines in our military capacity and capability. The Air Force is the smallest and oldest it has ever been. The Army is the smallest since before World War II. And the Navy is the smallest since World War I. Under sequestration, our services are experiencing the worst readiness crisis in over a generation, with training hours curtailed, maintenance on aircraft and vehicles deferred, and some pilots even forced to take spare parts for their planes from museums. Frankly, our serving Military deserves more. Donald Trump has proposed the most significant investment in national defense since Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Hillary Clinton, by contrast, has been completely silent on the crisis facing our military. The Trump plan, which was endorsed by 35 of the country’s leading defense experts, calls for immediately working with Congress, on a bipartisan basis, to remove sequestration from defense so our services can get the stability they need. Under a Trump presidency, our men and women in uniform will never be sent into harm’s way without the training and equipment they need to be successful and return home safely. Under Mr. Trump’s plan, the Air Force will grow to 1,200 fighter aircraft, which an independent analysis says is required to meet today’s threats. The Air Force's next generation bomber, emerging right here in Brevard is very high on the agenda. The Army will expand from 490,000 active soldiers to 540,000, the number the Army’s Chief of Staff says he needs. The Navy will grow to 350 ships from 272 today, as recommended by the bipartisan National Defense Panel. And the Marine Corps, in need of urgent recapitalization after fifteen years of protracted ground combat, will expand from 27 to 36 battalions. Florida, and the Space Coast, will play a major role in Mr. Trump’s defense agenda. This includes protecting our nations Satellites, and readying formidable replacements as we prepare to protect our leadership position in Space. He has proposed a comprehensive missile defense system, involving our Navy’s cruisers and space-based early warning and detection capabilities to counter growing missile threats. The Air Force’s Technical Applications Center at Patrick Air Force Base will be an important part of protecting our nation from Weapons of Mass Destruction challenges. Mr. Trump clearly recognizes the challenges facing our country in outer space, given the investments being made by potential competitors like Russia and China in anti- satellite weapons and hypersonic missiles than can overwhelm traditional missile defense systems. The United States cannot fall behind in emerging technologies like hypersonics, and the men and women of the Space Coast’s aerospace industry will be on the front lines of this effort. Mr. Trump has committed to sustaining the type of investment our aerospace sector needs through real public-private partnerships that will produce the technologies of the future. Under a Trump Administration, NASA will regain its critical role as a leader in outer space research and innovation while the private sector partners keep innovating. With the right policies, this region is on the cusp of becoming a center of advanced aerospace manufacturing, providing new, high-paying jobs, whether in Titusville; or the Melbourne area. Donald Trump’s vision for national security is based on strength, at home and abroad. By rebuilding our military and investing to restore American leadership in the Space Domain, Mr. Trump has found the right ingredients to ensure peace abroad and prosperity at home. The people of the Space Coast, and across the United States, have a clear choice on November 8th. -- Michael W. Wynne, a graduate of Melbourne High School, served as Secretary of the U.S. Air Force from 2005 to 2008.  Request an Interview

UPDATE: Greene in custody "Ambush assassinations of police officers are up several times over this year. America needs to send a clear message that violence against our public servants will never be tolerated. We urge people to contact their lawmakers and express support for Blue Lives Matter laws, making it a hate crime to target law enforcement officers". -- Blue Lives Matter Wanted: Scott Greene, Killer Who Ambushed And Murdered Two Heroes DES MOINES, Iowa, November 2, 2016 | TruthPR.com | – The suspect in the ambush murders of two police officers Wednesday morning has been identified as Scott Greene. Greene’s motivation for the attacks are still now known. Scott Greene, 46, is 5’11” / 180 lbs, brown hair, and green eyes, driving a blue 2011 Ford Ranger with Iowa plate 780YFR. Greene is reportedly armed and extremely dangerous. Just hours ago he is suspected to have ambushed two law enforcement officers in separate attacks as the officers were sitting in their patrol cars. The first assassination happened at around 1:06 AM at 70th & Aurora when an Urbandale officer was ambushed and murdered. Then at 1:26 Am a Des Moines officer who responded to the shooting was shot at Merle Hay & Sheridan. The Des Moines officer was transported to the hospital where he died. In both attacks, the officers were ambushed as they sat in their patrol cars. KCCI reports that Des Moines Police Sgt. Paul Parizek, “It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these officers and whoever the coward is who shot them while they sat in their cars.” The fallen officers have still not been identified.

The President was spot-on when he compared his health plan to the Samsung Galaxy phone when he visited last week. Obamacare is blowing up and the facts bear out that we need to change course. From rising premiums and deductibles, to more people on government programs, to the declining choices, Obamacare is a disaster and has failed to deliver what it promised. While the President promised to lower our health care costs, the exact opposite has happened. Premiums in the employer market have gone up by almost $5,000 per year since Obama took office. Despite millions of subsidies to the insurance companies, prices have gone up dramatically on Obamacare’s Marketplaces. Just this year, Floridians that are buying health coverage in the Marketplace will see an average increase of 19.0%, but the price increases range from 15 to 37%. While many get subsidies to offset these costs, the American taxpayer is footing the bill on these outrageous increases and there are many Floridians that don’t get subsidies and have to pay for these outrageous increases on their own. In addition to rate increase, those that are buying coverage in the Marketplaces have few choices of health plans and doctors, as carriers refuse to participate in Obamacare. The Florida Marketplace will not offer any choice of carrier to half of the state. Furthermore, over half the plans that are offered have deductibles that are more than $3,000, making the coverage unaffordable to actually use. In the face this mess, Hillary Clinton wants more Obamacare. Probably because Obamacare is based on the plan she created as First Lady, and even she says that before it was called Obamacare it was called “Hillarycare.” While continuing Obamacare, Clinton wants to extend coverage to illegal immigrants and offer a new public option. The public option will only drive more private companies out of the Marketplace giving us fewer choices and putting more people into government run health care. The path we are on is unsustainable and we need change. Trump has made it clear he won’t continue Obamacare. He will replace it with a plan that will make health care more affordable. Hillary Clinton will only give us more of the same and we can’t trust the future of our healthcare to her. -- Florida State Senator Kelli Stargel  ### To Request an Interview - email Jackie@TruthPR.com

Could Blacks Swing The Election To Trump?

October 31, 2016 | TruthPR | -- For decades, the Democratic Party has taken the African-American vote for granted – for good statistical reasons. Barack Obama captured at least 95% of the black vote in 2008 and 2012 as did Al Gore in 2000.  Even John Kerry hit 93% in 2004.[i]   Will jobs and illegal immigration be the issues that finally drive large numbers of African-Americans to vote Republican?  Ironically, President Barack Obama could well be the catalyst for such change. Obama, the supposed ideal candidate of hope and change, was supposed to lead Black America towards the Promised Land (or at least in the right direction). Yet the gap between whites and blacks remains wide. At 8.1%, the black unemployment rate is almost double that for whites (4.4%).[ii]  24.1% of the black population is in poverty compared to less than 9.1% for whites.[iii]  In 2009, when Obama took office, the median weekly earnings of blacks was 79% that of whites and remains unchanged today.[iv]  Today, the rate of homeownership for blacks is 41.7% versus 71.5% for whites.[v] Against this grim economic backdrop, many of America’s black urban neighborhoods continue to suffer from violent crime and drug addiction.  To the White House’s embarrassment, Obama’s own hometown of Chicago had the highest number of homicides in 2015 of any American city, far outpacing both Los Angeles and New York. So yes, blacks have seen the Obama-Clinton version of the Promised Land. After 8 years, it still looks much like the previous 20.  Donald Trump’s version of the Promised Land is as markedly different as it is uplifting. He offers a comprehensive program of tax cuts, regulatory reform, the unleashing of our energy sector, and an end to the bad trade deals that have been draining jobs and wealth out of our communities. His mission is to rekindle America’s strong economic growth and thereby create millions of jobs and the conditions we need for renewed wage growth. This is a vision for the human race, all Americans, united to create more opportunities and rekindle our entrepreneurial spirit. Practicing what he preaches, Trump employs more blacks and Hispanics in his own enterprises than any presidential candidate in the last 20 years. In addition, Trump has boldly promised to stop the flood of illegal immigrants now bringing so much economic and social misery to the black community.  According to the Center for Immigration Studies, roughly 2.5 million illegal immigrants have entered the United States under President Obama’s watch. This stream of illegal immigration has been a punch right to the gut of Black America. As U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow has warned: “In addition to depressing black employment levels… illegal immigration—frankly any low-skilled immigration—tends to drive down the wages of jobs that are available for black Americans.”  A.J. Delgado goes a step further by explaining: “African Americans are disproportionately employed in lower-skilled jobs—the very same jobs immigrants take.” If blacks want more of this same old sad Democratic Party song, their choice is Hillary Clinton. The alternative is Donald Trump – good for the economy, tough on crime, smart on trade and remarkably candid about the damage being done by illegal immigration to our economy and communities.   REQUEST AN INTERVIEW HERE. ____________ Jennifer Carroll is the Former Lieutenant Governor of Florida  [i]Gore received 95%, Kerry 93%.  http://www.gallup.com/poll/139880/election-polls-presidential-vote-groups.aspx [ii] Summary Table A, http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf , p. 4.

ELECTION-EVE WARNING TO CHRISTIAN AMERICANS

SINGER SONG-WRITER TEAM VISITS ALL 50 CAPITOLS CHARLOTTESVILLE, Vir., October 26, 2016 | TruthPR | – Howie and Debbie Campbell, a singer-songwriter team, have a message for American Christians. It’s an election-year plea but not about politics. In a miraculous musical tour, they have already taken it to the steps of all 50 state capitols – including Alaska and Hawaii. And on November 7, the eve of the presidential elections, they are taking that message to the US Capitol steps again. Their message has been subtle and sometimes disconcerting to mostly open-air audiences. “It’s not that America has to repent,” says guitar-strumming folk-singer Howie Campbell, “it’s that Christian Americans and the churches have to repent; we believers must engage with God and truly seek His face.” “It is not about religion engaging with the culture, in fact it’s not about the culture at all. People think we’re traveling evangelists or revivalists. We’re not. We’ve been given a prophetic message and we present it sort of like Bob Dylan did in the ‘60s. “The only hope for America … to be “great” again … is for believers to repent and return to God, to seek His face with all their heart and release their grip on this world and its goodies. The whole world knows that America is in a spiritual crisis. It’s up to American believers take seriously God’s directive in 2 Chronicles 7:14!” Their musical odyssey has been a miracle says Debbie Campbell. They started out with only $20 in their pockets. “We didn’t even have enough gas to make it to the next state capitol,” laughs Debbie, who lives and travels with her husband in the back of their Ford Transit cargo van. On March 9, at the first stop on the morning they left Charlottesville, a local business man handed her long-haired husband an envelope because “I believe in what you’re doing.” Inside was an amazingly generous check. By sleeping in the van, it covered the frugal couple’s expenses for the first 10 capitols! And so, it has gone for the next nine months. They sang and preached and prayed their way from one state to another – literally living from one day to the next, mostly on the donations of friends and strangers. In many U.S. capitols during the unusual miracle tour, they were welcomed by a handful of fans and friends of their unique “Americana” folk-jazz sound. Sometimes, small bands of believers would join them as they spoke and sang in the open-air. So many women are curious that Debbie is writing a book about the 2016 Miracle Tour. Fans and friends of the Campbell’s can contact them at their website www.wisdomandtruth.org. ### About the writer: Bill Bray, 68, is an author and Christian journalist.

Mosul vs. Dabiq

Mosul vs. Dabiq National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro      NEW YORK, NY, October 17, 2016 | TruthPR | -- While mainstream media attention is laser-focused on the battle for Mosul, the Islamic State (ISIS / ISIL) has suffered its biggest defeat yet by losing Dabiq; a small town in Syria that ISIS' basis its claims of prophetic legitimacy upon. "The defeat of ISIS in Dabiq was arguably more important than the fight in Mosul and will do incalculable damage to the morale of the ISIS fighters in Mosul," said National Security analyst Ryan Mauro. "However, many will still be willing to die there, believing it's still a way to enter Paradise even if ISIS' claims of fulfilling prophecy ended up being debunked," Mauro said.  Ever since ISIS began dominating our TV screens, the Clarion Project has been educating about the apocalyptic, prophecy-centric ideology that sets ISIS apart from other Islamist extremist groups. The Clarion Project reported in June that various anti-ISIS forces, unfortunately including Al-Qaeda, were closing in on Dabiq. Although all Islamists reference End Times prophecies to varying degrees, ISIS claims' of fulfilling specific prophecies has been one of its main growth mediums, with the capturing of Dabiq being the most emphasized one. In so doing, ISIS became dependent upon its holding of Dabiq as a life-sustaining vertebrae in its ideological spine. As we've explained in greater detail previously, ISIS claims of prophetic fulfillment required there to be a big, bloody battle with the infidel in Dabiq. That's why Dabiq is the title of its English-language publication. Request an Interview here

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL, October 11, 2016 | TruthPR | -- I watched the debate with great interest last Sunday. This debate has touched the ears of millions of Americans and people around the world. There were some amazing takeaways for me from both of the candidates. It's very clear that Mrs. Clinton fully supports Planned Parenthood's abortion agenda. It's also clear that Mr. Trump supports appointments of Prolife Justices like Justice Scalia. More here. As to rumors of reports of more controversial tapes with Mr. Trump using the "N" word, if he did, he should apologize along with the countless others who have done so. On the flip side: Too many people including politicians have used the "N" word. It's even possible that Sec. Clinton has used the "N" word, too. At any rate, we are praying that she will stop supporting baby killers. For the record, my daddy, Rev. A. D. King taught me that skin color bias is based on a lie. When I wanted to hatefully blame "white people" for killing my Uncle MLK, his brother, my Daddy said: "No. White people pray with us, go to jail with us, die with us. The Devil killed my brother. We are one human race, the One Blood of Acts 17:26." "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools." Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. In the midst of the current political fray, we ask everyone to focus on current key election issues such as sanctity of all human life. As long as Mr. Trump keeps his promise to stop the abortion scourge which kills so many Black babies, we accept his apologies. Just don't do it again. Fix our cities sir. Put America to work again, educate our children again, let America pray again. This morning as I was mediating, it seemed as though God asked me: "Why are you asking me to give you my best; are you [individual Alveda and America] giving me your best?" I repented right away. If we want God's best, we, as a people, must do better. Watch my appearance on Fox Business' Cavuto: Coast to Coast for more debate analysis. Yes, locker room trash talk is bad. Casting the first stone is bad. Pretending to be pious is bad. Face the truth; America, we've been naughty. Stop it. "For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God's household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God's Good News?" 1 Peter 4:17 NLT Finally, we encourage everyone to pray for America and vote Prolife. ### Request an Interview with Dr. Alveda King

ATLANTA, Geo., September 26, 2016 | TruthPR.com | -- Today, as the first round of the U. S. general election presidential debates approaches, two parties will be represented on stage tonight. Which party will champion all human life from the womb to the tomb? As the candidates go through their preparation regiments for tonight's battle, we need to prepare to listen without having our feelings prevent us from hearing truth. This cannot be a personality contest or an emotional who owes us an apology exercise. We can't afford to be distracted by division. We, the Acts 17:26 "One Blood, One Human Race" family must unite in prayer so that God will heal our nation! "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is now time to consider the platforms. Which candidate will promote justice, safety, and human dignity for all Americans, in the womb, after birth and throughout their lives?

  Request an Interview with Guest Alveda King  ATLANTA, GEO, September 1, 2016 / TruthPR.com / --Request Friends, you may have recently seen me on TV discussing race relations. Alveda King: Pray, Repent, & Trust in God We Can Resolve this Violence Peacefully, Dr. Aveda King: Colin Kaepernick protest is very disturbing and Alveda King Mr Trump wants Black Vote. You surely have heard my reminders that color blindness is a medical and spiritual condition requiring restoration of sight; and that being of separate races is a lie. We are one blood/one human race! [Acts 17:26] Also, you may have heard me say that “White Privilege” hurts not just Blacks, but every ethnicity and all of America. There are many working class Caucasians and all ethnic groups who are victims of the same unfair lending, housing and other disparities that are holding Blacks hostage in urban cities. It’s no longer just about skin color. Here below is more information on the subject. The race issue is smack in the middle of the abortion crisis, the presidential elections and so much more. Let's pray for truth and understanding to break every chain! Research on One Blood and America's flawed system: An excellent tool for understanding America's flawed system is to get acquainted with these thinkers through their videos.  1.      Debby Irving:Finding Myself in the Story of Race | Debby Irving | TEDx Fenway. The entire video is EXCELLENT, try to watch the whole thing,  The exact information you and I were discussing starts at the 6:30 mark. 2.     Historian Jacqueline Battalora: Traces the creation of white privilege in some of the earliest recorded laws in America. Birth of a White Nation  3.      Dorothy Roberts: Brilliant legal scholar, discusses the modern perpetuation of the myth of biological race through social propaganda dressed up as science.

His report focused on the deep roots of block poverty in the United States. The Moynihan Report (1965) 5.     Some bullet points: ·       19th Century GI Bill selective lending practices were designed to advance some and limit others.·       In the patriarchal system of America and most of the world, the forced Black Matriarchal system crippled the Black Men of America.·       America’s Welfare System should have been a Workfare System, allowing participants to invest in their futures with empowerment rather than handouts.

In 2007, during the Presidential elections of the United States, I endorsed my last candidate, Governor Sam Brownback. When he left the campaign, I was about to endorse another candidate, Governor Mike Huckabee. Just as I was about to press the “send” button on the release, I was impressed to read my Bible. During those moments, it was as if God was speaking to my heart. “Stop endorsing, and start praying.” Having been elected to office in the Georgia House of Representatives during the 1970’s and 1980’s, I understood the importance of political endorsements. I still do. So, for many years, especially since the time that God impressed me to pray for all candidates, and vote for the platforms that are closest to my heart and His Word, I have been voting prolife and pro-America. Messages like the sanctity of life, reconciliation of the one blood, the one human race; the sanctity of procreative monogamous; social economic justice; equal education rights; constitutional rights, and so much more continues to resonate in my heart as I prepare to vote. This year, during this important election, with a clear conscience, I am honoring my commitment to God to spend more time in prayer, rather than endorsing any candidates. Some are texting and posting that this is lack of courage. Believe me, it takes quite a bit of courage to stand up to the pressure of not endorsing, even to the point of being called a coward. However, I still love everyone, and I still love America. I encourage you to view the video of Pastor Will Bates of Living Faith Christian Church in Baton Rouge, and my video at Fox Business News. Pastor Bates and I have something in common; he took his daughter to her first protest, my daddy Rev. A. D. King took me to mine; The Children’s March in Birmingham, Alabama. I have been peacefully protesting every since. I pledge allegiance to the Kingdom of God, with a burning desire to be that city/nation on a hill, shining light to the world. I sing our National Anthem with gratitude, believing for that day when we can truly be one nation under God. May God bless us all! ### Request an Interview with Guest Alveda King

ATLANTA, GA, December 7, 2015 | Christian News Service | -- Meet Abraham's sons [and daughters].   See how they love one another – “even unto death” words of the Romans watching Christians with awe and growing respect, to the point that brutal civilization which saw Christians as a threat and an abomination to their gods converted their hearts.         This short video needs to be seen and shared.  It relates the conversion of a hard core Muslim youth to Christianity (hard core, it would seem) with the catalyst – that Roman quote "even unto death" - put into local and intense action.  You will love this! -- Its message needs to be multiplied all over the country and the world exponentially!     With the present onslaught of terrorists’ outbreaks in America and around the world comes the urgent reminder of how everywhere people need the Lord.     Now, as we pray for the families who have lost loved ones to terrorism in America and around the world, let's examine some facts surrounding the terror.    Abraham's Family Feud   The family feud between Muslims and Jews aka Arabs and Hebrews is ancient. They have the same natural Grandfather, Abraham. For a solution, reconciliation is required. All the bombs and guns in the world won't do it. Isaac and Ishmael must come together in God's love and grace. All Arabs and Muslims aren't evil.    Conflict between the two natural sons of Abraham began from the very start. Genesis 21:9 says the conflict began just after Isaac was weaned: "Now Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking."   Galatians 4 tells us that Ishmael had been "born according to the flesh" while Isaac had been "born according to the promise." Isaac replaced Ishmael as the favored son and heir. This, of course, made Ishmael jealous and bitter. As a result, he mocked and disdained his half-brother. Eventually the situation became so intolerable that Abraham's wife Sarah demanded that Ishmael and his Egyptian concubine mother, Hagar, be expelled permanently from Abraham's family.   But YHWH loved Hagar and her son, and had mercy upon them. He promised Hagar that her son would beget twelve princes who would become a great nation. Ishmael then went to live in the wilderness region of Hejaz in what became known as the Arabian Peninsula. He indeed had twelve patriarchal sons who became associated with the peoples known as Midianites, Edomites, Egyptians and Assyrians. The Bible and Islamic tradition both agree that Ishmael became the leader of all the great desert peoples of the Middle East.   This jealousy and resentment between Sarah and Hagar and their sons Isaac and Ishmael created an unparalleled hate which has set off wars and atrocities for four thousand years. In spite of wealth and blessings that God promised and delivers to both Ishmael and Isaac, it is the title deed to the land of Israel, which God promised to Abraham's lineage, which has been the source of the friction between the Jews and the Arabs right up to the present day.   The conflict extends even further to challenge the spiritually "adopted" sons of Abraham - the Gentiles who accept Jesus as God's Son and Savior of Humanity.    "And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God's promise to Abraham belongs to you." Galatians 3:29 So the battle wages among humans over spiritual and natural inheritance. Satan would wield weapons if strife, rejection, violence, hatred and a host of evils to divide God's people. We must resist this present evil.    A world in trouble   Having explained all of this, there is still no excuse for terrorism. ISIS must go. Yet lest we forget, ISIS is not the only threat to our nation and the word. Poverty, racism, domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual perversion, abortion and so much more are also rending the moral fabric of our world.    http://www.priestsforlife.org/africanamerican/3headedmonster/index.aspx   The solution   With global threats, looming elections, war talk and the like, we must ask ourselves if human solutions will be enough to sustain our world. Is there more from heavenly corridors?   Social justice begins in the womb.   "We cannot fight credibly against other social and moral evils, including poverty and violence, while we tolerate mass killings by abortion."    -     Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.   Acts 17:26 says we are one blood, one race.   “God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16 GW   Now more than ever we must cry out to God for deliverance. Pray for America and our world.    ###   Media Contact:Alveda King Ministries Contact: Leslie Palma 347-286-7277 or leslie@priestsforlife.org

The following is submitted by Dr. Alveda King: “Let not your heart faint, and be not fearful at the report heard in the land, when a report comes in one year and afterward a report in another year, and violence is in the land, and ruler is against ruler.” – Jeremiah 51:46 ESV ATLANTA, GA, December 4, 2015, |Christian News Service | -- Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA has taken over the news cycle for the last two days and rightly so as it is a horrific tragedy. On the same day there was a lesser reported mass shooting in Savannah, GA. While perhaps there were not enough people killed to make Savannah a ‘big’ story, as the Washington Post noted, “The local news barely acknowledged the murder: One local television station covered it in three paragraphs. The same article also points out that mass shootings have ‘become normal,’ 355 of them in 2015. In a seemingly unrelated chain of events, last week’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs brought on a firestorm of blame at pro-lifers.  Rev. Frank Pavone writes: “Vicki Cowart, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, wrote, ‘We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country.’” “Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of the National Abortion Federation (NAF), was more explicit in her statement to blame the pro-life movement for Friday’s incident, stating, ‘Although anti-abortion groups may condemn this type of violence when it happens, the way that they target and demonize providers contributes to a culture where some feel it is justifiable to murder doctors.’” Let's keep in mind that these women deliberately omit to admit that millions of babies have been legally violently dismembered or chemically killed in America by abortion. And many mothers have been maimed or killed in the process.   There's more. Lest we forget, the "Black Lives Matter" cries remain as part of the bigger picture. Yes, Black lives matter, all black lives matter [including aborted babies, black on black crime victims, incarcerated youths, etc.]. Indeed all lives matter because John 3:16 says God loves the whole world and that means everybody. We, as one human race (Acts 17:26), are in this thing together whether we like it or not.  What we are missing here is the not so subtle connection to what on the surface seems to be random violent outbreaks in the atmosphere. Yet as Rev. Pavone points out, the problems with the Colorado Springs shooting is not the pro-lifers referring to abortion as murder but rather the abortion industry’s utter lack of respect for life and choosing its solution to solving someone’s problem by killing their child. Although the Colorado Springs shooting was abortion related, we should consider that there is a common denominator; an utter lack of respect for life. Whether there are various underlying causes for the lack of disregard of the rights of others, consequent actions lead to outcomes such as these mass shootings, high abortion rates, high levels of incarceration, suicide and many other threats to the human family.  Terrorism, be it in the womb, from distant shores, behind the domestic walls of our homes, or wherever it occurs, terrorism by any other name is still the same.  Killing has been a part of humanity since Cain killed Abel. Throughout history humans have been killing for greed, convenience, emotional pain, and the like in order to acquire what others have; whether it be land, money, power, or [and we can fill in the blanks here]. Human life has long been devalued to the point that life has often become disposable as long as we can't see the danger to our own. Herein lies the Catch 22: we disregard others to save ourselves - sadly not realizing that we are universally connected to our human family.  With the passage of time America has joined the rest of the world in rubber stamping the killing of our babies in the womb, as well as the sick, the elderly and in alarmingly increasing numbers, the poor.  With this acceptance of devaluation of humanity, the consciences of men, women and children have been numbed. The answer to one’s problem becomes the dehumanization and elimination of those who would interfere with what someone wants. Is there any wonder that mass killings are occurring on a regular, almost daily, basis? Let's connect some dots.  Have an unplanned pregnancy? Illness? Getting too old? Other problems? Eliminate your problems with abortion or euthanasia.  Killing is fast becoming the choice many people are "choosing" in order to fix their problems. Killing of another or of self both devalue and destroy life. We must wake up and recognize that the taking of any life, born, unborn, sick, handicapped, elderly, those of faith outside of ours -- is wrong. "The people who know their God shall [must] stand firm and take action.” Daniel 11:32 ESV Contrary to what others are saying, that "God will not fix this," it should be obvious that only God can change hearts and fix broken lives. Pray for America, and the world.   Read full article here: Dr. Alveda King's Blog
