Fox News host Sean Hannity said Thursday that the negative reactions to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony on Wednesday are proof the Democratic Party just cannot let go of its 2016 defeat.
“They just seem incapable of accepting, which is I think at the foundation of why they keep going here, they can’t accept the 2016 election results,” Hannity said Thursday night.
And, how will this asshole like to see this acceptance, after Trump is crying;
“Lock her up!”
Putin hated Hillary and worked had to be sure she was not elected. Mueller said he would have locked up Trump if he was not the President – and he’s a Republican! Putin is laughing his ass off, because we Americans are living in two opposing worlds – as planned!
For over twenty-five years I have been walking a fence between the secular and religious world. Today, there is no fence, no wall. no border.
There is a shield in the fake seal that depicts five hammer and cycles in the blue field. In 2014 I began to give prophetic warnings wearing an American and Soviet flag. These flags have merged. The U.S. is now part of Putin’s Kingdom, as is Britain. The words on the fake seal say……….”45 is a puppet”.
Herbert Armstrong warned us. I suspect his church was taken over by the Soviet Union. Putin may have been in charge of this operation. Like the Phantom of the Oera, he upstaged Trump after he appear at the end of this very apocalyptic film. I’m talking about the richest man in the world who may have been secretly funding evangelical churches – and colleges – turning out loyal robots.
It all began 500 yards from where I live. I am not sure if KORE is in Eugene or Springfield. I now wonder if there was a conspiracy to prevent me from saving Armstrong’s radio station that should have continued to broadcast out WARNINGS again the Russians. Armstrong did not foresee a Russian Czar who wants to restore the Monarchy. Did Putin listen to Hebert Armstrong’s message being broadcast from Radio London?
All this information is falling from the sky like mana! All the pieces are falling into place. The End of the World may be at hand! I am going to try to gather together some loyal American computer experts to help me broadcast Armstrong’s Last Show.
Today I went to where Marilyn works to go to lunch. 500 hundred yards away, her long time employee’s spirit contacted me. I told Marilyn Joseph spoke to me.
“Didn’t you tell me he died several years ago?”
“He died two months ago.”
“You didn’t tell me!”
Josephs’ spirit is hanging about where he worked since 1999. He loved it there.
John ‘The Second Elijah’
“During Tkach’s tenure, the changes that he implemented stirred much controversy and significant dissent among those who continued to follow Armstrong’s theology. The dissenters labeled the changes as heresy and many left to form new church organizations. Within the mainstream Christian community, some have hailed Tkach’s reforms, which brought a church from the fringe to orthodoxy, as unprecedented. “
He was born March 16, 1927, in Chicago, the youngest of five children and the only son of Vassil and Mary Tkach. The name Tkach /təˈkɒtʃ/ is of Carpatho-Rusyn (Ukrainian) origin, but his parents were originally from Czechoslovakia. The neighborhood where he grew up was composed mainly of blue-collar working people of Russian origin. He graduated from Tilden High School in southwest Chicago. He then served a short term in the U.S. Navy near the end of World War II and afterward returned to his native Chicago. On March 31, 1951, Tkach married Elaine Apostolos; they had three children: Joseph Jr., Tanya, and Jennifer.
Tkach grew up in the Russian Orthodox faith, but eventually his family, including his parents, became interested in the Radio Church of God through the radio broadcast of Herbert W. Armstrong, the founder of the church. The Radio Church of God would eventually change its name in 1968 to the Worldwide Church of God (WCG), the church that Tkach would lead. It was a church characterized by the strong influence of its founder and his unique doctrines based on his own interpretation of the Bible. Initially, Tkach was the only member of his family who was not interested in listening to the radio broadcasts. However, a purportedly miraculous event was to change him. At the time, Tkach suffered from severe ulcers and was required to stay on a special diet. His wife then suggested that God would heal him if he were to become a minister in Armstrong’s church. Although skeptical, he accepted the suggestion of becoming a minister and he found himself cured, never again to suffer from the ulcers. He was baptized by Radio Church of God minister, Dean Blackwell, on March 1, 1957. On June 7, 1961, Blackwell ordained him a deacon in the Chicago congregation, and on June 3, 1963, Roderick C. Meredith, who would eventually lead a breakaway church from the WCG, ordained him as an elder.
Rusyns (Rusyn: Русины / Rusynŷ), sometimes referred to as Rusnaks (Rusyn: Руснакы / Rusnakŷ), also known as Carpatho-Ruthenians or Carpatho-Russians (Rusyn: Карпато-Русини / Karpato-Rusyny), are an East Slavic people who speak the Rusyn language. They descend from an East Slavic population that inhabited the Northern regions of the Eastern Carpathians since the Early Middle Ages. Together with other East Slavs from neighboring regions, they were often labeled by the common exonym Ruthenians, or by the regionally more specific designation Carpathian Ruthenians, and sub-group designations Dolinyans, Boykos, Hutsuls and Lemkos. Unlike their Eastern neighbors, who adopted the use of the ethnonym Ukrainians in the early 20th century, Rusyns kept and preserved their original name. As residents of Northeastern regions of the Carpathian Mountains, Rusyns are closely connected to, and also sometimes associated with, other Slavic communities in the region, like the Slovaks highlander community of Gorals (literally, “Highlanders”).
Early Life and Rise to Power
According to the plot, born in Cluj County, Romania, Carpathia was the product of genetic engineering and artificial insemination. His mother, Marilena, was unwittingly convinced by a group of Luciferians, whose group she joins, to become the mother of a child who, they assured her, would change the face of the world. Marilena stayed with her husband, Sorin, until the baby was born, insisting that her son keep the strong Carpathia name. (In the prequel novels, it is explained that the name “Nicolae”, when translated, means “victory of the people”, although this is far from Carpathia’s actual goals.
Through his parents, Carpathia possessed a unique bloodline dating back to Ancient Rome, so he could actually claim to be a Roman descendant. This references both the early Christian belief that the Antichrist would come in the form of a Roman emperor, as well as the current Pre-Millennialist Christian view that the Antichrist will emerge from a “New Roman Empire”.
The Radio Church of God began with Herbert W. Armstrong, who in 1931 was ordained by the Oregon Conference of the Church of God (Seventh-Day), an Adventist group, and began serving a congregation in Eugene, Oregon. On January 7, 1934, Armstrong began hosting a broadcast on a local 100-watt radio station KORE in Eugene. It was essentially a condensed church service on the air, with hymn singing featured along with Armstrong’s message, and it was the launching point for what would become the Radio Church of God. In 1933, the Church of God (Seventh-Day) split. Armstrong, who sided with the faction centered in Salem, West Virginia, fell out with the local congregation over various doctrinal issues, especially his espousal of British Israelism.
Scandal and Conflict
Many members were disappointed that the events predicted in Biblical prophecy, expounded and preached about by Herbert Armstrong, had not yet come to pass. Most were unaware that Herbert Armstrong had been preaching about Revelation and Bible Prophecy on the radio as far back as World War II, when he had proclaimed Hitler and Mussolini could have filled the roles of the Beast and False Prophet of the Book of Revelation. After the war ended, Armstrong attended a meeting in San Francisco in which a proposal was made to create the United Nations. He had also read a quote from Winston Churchill proposing the creation of a United States of Europe. This was a springboard that the 10 Kings, 10 Horns, 10 Crowns of Revelation reveal a European Union would rise up to become the Beast Power. While the European Union was an idea in the making, the nations of Europe were far from united, as the union itself was still another 20 years in the future. Because church literature such as The Wonderful World Tomorrow, 1975 in Prophecy!, and many others had attempted to pinpoint the date of Christ’s return, members continued to wait anxiously for the Second Coming. Armstrong never predicted a date in his sermons, nor did any of his evangelists. Some (such as Gerald Waterhouse) presented detailed, step-by-step accounts of the Second Coming in their sermons, which included Armstrong himself as one of two witnesses of the Book of Revelation.
Herbert Armstrong began to speak openly and critically of his son. Garner Ted spoke of greatly expanding the church’s media ministry on the model of the Church of Christ, Scientist with its widely read Christian Science Monitor to which Herbert W. Armstrong disagreed.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has released its long-awaited bipartisan report on election security and Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Among the key findings of the report, the committee writes that “the Russian government directed extensive activity, beginning in at least 2014 and carrying into at least 2017, against U.S. election infrastructure at the state and local level.”
The report is heavily redacted in some areas and is 67 pages. The Senate panel, which has been investigating Russian interference for more than two years, released a summary version of its election security findings in May 2018.
The panel released its redacted report one day after former special counsel Robert Mueller appeared on Capitol Hill to testify about his own 22-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump.
The congressional document, which is the product of a bipartisan investigation led by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.), recommended that officials give “renewed attention” to vulnerabilities in voting infrastructure, such as further securing voter registration databases.
The report also recommends that Congress should consider providing additional funding for states to secure elections once the $380 million appropriated by Congress to states for this purpose in 2018 is spent.
“In 2016, the U.S. was unprepared at all levels of government for a concerted attack from a determined foreign adversary on our election infrastructure,” Burr said in a statement, noting that the Department of Homeland Security and state and local election officials have made strides in the past three years “to bridge gaps in information sharing and shore up vulnerabilities.”
“There is still much work that remains to be done, however,” Burr said. “It is my hope that the Senate Intelligence Committee’s bipartisan report will provide the American people with valuable insight into the election security threats still facing our nation and the ways we can address them.”
Warner echoed Burr, saying neither the federal government nor the states were “adequately prepared” when Russia attempted to infiltrate U.S. voting statements in 2016 but said they have taken steps since then to ensure election systems are better secured.
But, Warner added, “there’s still much more we can and must do to protect our elections.”
The panel is expected to release further volumes laying out the investigation’s findings regarding the intelligence community’s assessment, the Obama administration’s response to Russian interference, social media disinformation campaigns and whether there was coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow sometime in the fall leading up to Election Day.
The report released Thursday stresses that federal agencies should remain “respectful” of state jurisdiction over the administration of elections, but that each should “be aware of their own cybersecurity limitations and know both how and when to obtain assistance.”
Mueller, during his highly anticipated testimony Wednesday, emphasized threats faced by U.S. elections from foreign interference.
“Over the course of my career, I’ve seen a number of challenges to our democracy,” Mueller said in his opening remarks. “The Russian government’s effort to interfere in our election is among the most serious.”
Democrats seized on Mueller’s comments to try to pass multiple election security bills by unanimous consent in the Senate this week, including more funding for states to secure election systems, as well as one to require federal campaigns to report contact with foreign nationals to authorities.
However, Senate Republicans blocked each of these bills, with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) saying Thursday that he would only consider “bipartisan” legislation on the issue. McConnell has so far refused to allow a stand-alone vote on election security measures.
The Intelligence Committee’s report’s overall findings confirmed previous details made public about Russian efforts to access state voting infrastructure, with Illinois suffering the worst hit.
The committee reported that “as of the end of 2018, the Russian cyber actors had successfully penetrated Illinois’s voter registration database, viewed multiple database tables, and accessed up to 200,000 voter registration records.” This attack led to the exfiltration of voter data including names, addresses, partial social security numbers, dates of birth and driver’s license numbers.
Election infrastructure in a second unnamed state was also breached, and several counties in that state were specifically probed. Officials from this state told the committee they were “highly confident” of the security of their systems, having implemented several upgrades since 2016.
While Illinois and the unnamed state suffered the worst effects of Russian election targeting, the committee wrote that intelligence developed in 2018 assessed that all 50 states were targeted in 2016 in some way.
The panel’s report cites testimony from Obama-era officials and Trump administration officials and security experts, as well as private interviews with state officials who are not named.
The Senate report says the investigation found no evidence any vote tallies were changed, vote-tallying systems manipulated or voter registration data changed or deleted but notes that the committee and the intelligence community’s insights are “limited.”
Mueller’s report, like the intelligence assessment that the Senate Intelligence Committee upheld, stated that Russia interfered to help Trump win but does not assert that Russia’s intervention had a material impact on the result of the election.
The Senate report also states that Russian Embassy officials submitted a request with the State Department to observe the election, which was not approved. Despite this, the committee found that the State Department was “aware that Russia was attempting to send election observers to polling places in 2016. The true intention of these efforts is unknown.”
The committee detailed Russian attempts to probe and access election systems and infrastructure in a variety of unnamed states. U.S. officials have said that Russian hackers probed election infrastructure in 21 states.
Among the more alarming of these finding was that in one state, cyber actors tried to penetrate systems that, had they been successful, would have allowed them to “manipulate the unofficial display of the election tallies.”
The report includes a number of recommendations. It calls on the federal government to create an effective deterrence by more forcefully pushing back on foreign interference, not only in the cyber arena, as part of a cyber doctrine.
“The United States should communicate to adversaries that it will view an attack on its election infrastructure as a hostile act, and we will respond accordingly. The U.S. Government should not limit its response to cyber activity; rather, it should create a menu of potential responses that will send a clear message and create significant costs for the perpetrator,” the report states.
It also includes a number of recommendations for federal and state officials to shore up the security of U.S. electoral systems, such as conducting security audits, institute two-factor authentication, create paper backups of voter databases and replace outdated voting systems.
The Senate panel opened its investigation in January 2017. Most of its work has taken place behind the scenes, as the committee has interviewed key members of the Trump campaign and other figures integral to the investigation.
Burr has at various points predicted the investigation to be wrapping up, but it has extended longer than anticipated. The committee was re-interviewing witnesses earlier this year, including Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and Donald Trump Jr., who was summoned via subpoena.
Mueller’s investigation found that Russia interfered in the 2016 election in sweeping and systematic form, but did not find enough evidence to charge members of the Trump campaign in a broader conspiracy with Russia.
Mueller also did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed the Russia investigation — an issue of prime focus during the former special counsel’s testimony on Wednesday.
