WHY DID GOD SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN?




God put in these people's Spirit to Shut the Government down, because the Government itself conveys and facilitates such injustice in the land.



There are some Psychiatrists who try to say that my fixation (Paranoid Ideations) on using any means to put a stop to Police Killing the Seed of Israel (or anybody else) is somehow a "Developmental Disability."  The Mental Health system in America today I argue is even worse than the old Soviet Communist and the Nazi Fascist Mental Health system.  The Soviets had to make up disorders to diagnose people.  In Corporatist America, they just use the old disorders the Nazis would falsely diagnose on the Jewish Converts and turn those old disorders as weapons against the Hebrews and Israelites under captivity in America today.





Daniel 2:21-22 King James Version (KJV)

21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.


Psalm 94:20-23

20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

With no deal, U.S. government shutdown likely to drag on past Christmas 
James Oliphant, Richard Cowan


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A partial U.S. government shutdown was almost certain to drag through the Christmas holiday after the Senate adjourned on Saturday without breaking an impasse over President Donald Trump’s demand for more funds for a border wall.

With no deal in sight on a bill to fund the government, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell sent senators home until Thursday. While he said he would call them back if a deal was struck, the decision all but guaranteed a partial shutdown would stretch at least until then.



Financing for about a quarter of federal government programs - including the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and Agriculture - expired at midnight and will not be renewed until a deal is done.



Federal parks were to close and more than 400,000 federal “essential” employees in those agencies will work without pay until the dispute is resolved. Another 380,000 will be “furloughed”, meaning they are put on temporary leave.

Law enforcement efforts, border patrols, mail delivery and airport operations will keep running.

The shutdown caps a perilous week for the president, with Defense Secretary James Mattis resigning in protest at Trump’s sudden decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. The planned withdrawal was widely criticized, even by senior Republicans in Congress.

The latest dysfunction in Washington does not bode well for bipartisan cooperation next year, when Democrats will have a stronger hand as they take control of the House of Representatives in January.



“VERY FAR APART” Vice President Mike Pence and White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney huddled with the Senate’s top Democrat, Chuck Schumer, on Saturday afternoon, but they appeared to make little headway toward a deal to re-open the government.

“The vice president came in for a discussion and made an offer. Unfortunately, we’re still very far apart,” a spokesman for Schumer said.

Pence offered to drop the demand for $5 billion for a border wall, substituting instead $2.1 billion, ABC News reported citing unnamed sources.

Trump put off a plan to spend Christmas at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida because of the shutdown, the White House said. First lady Melania Trump, who is already in Florida, is to return to Washington to spend Christmas with her husband.

In a call with reporters, a senior Trump administration official said the president was still pressing for $5 billion for a wall or barrier along the border with Mexico and other security enhancements.

Building a wall to keep migrants from entering the United States illegally was a central plank of Trump’s presidential campaign, but Democrats are vehemently opposed and have rejected his funding request.

Trump upends plan to avert federal shutdown Following a meeting at the White House with several Republican lawmakers, Trump again tweeted about the need for border security to ward off “the crisis of illegal activity.”

Republican Senator Richard Shelby, who attended the meeting, said it was unlikely any agreement on a stopgap funding measure was imminent.

Earlier in the week, leaders in both the Senate and House of Representatives thought they had reached a deal that Trump would sign that contained less money for border security, only to watch the president, under pressure from conservatives, re-assert his demand for $5 billion at the last minute.



The House, where Trump’s fellow Republicans currently hold a majority, passed a bill that included the $5 billion, but it ran aground in the Senate.

In a joint statement on Saturday, Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said that if the shutdown continues past next week, they will pass legislation to re-open the government when Democrats take control of the House on Jan. 3.

While the promise of building a border wall was a fixture of Trump’s 2016 campaign, it is not a priority for most Americans.

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll in late November, only 31 percent of those surveyed said improved border security should be among the top three priorities for Congress.

That suggests Trump is taking a political risk by gambling on a shutdown to press his point as Democrats are gearing up for the 2020 presidential primary elections and looking for issues to seize on for an advantage.

The longest federal government shutdown, lasting 21 days, occurred in December 1995 and January 1996, triggered by conflicts between President Bill Clinton and congressional Republicans over Medicare funding and government spending. Clinton is widely viewed as having won the political battle over the shutdown, and was re-elected in 1996.

In 2013, the government shut down for 16 days after conservative Republicans demanded to strip funding for, or delay implementation of, President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare legislation. Republicans suffered in public opinion polls and eventually capitulated.



Luke 17:26-36
[26]And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
[27]They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
[28]Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
[29]But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
[30]Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
[31]In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
[32]Remember Lot's wife.
[33]Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
[34]I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
[35]Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[36]Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.




Genesis 13:12-13
[12]Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
[13]But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.


Revelation 18:2,18
[2]And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
[18]And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!


2 Kings 17:13-18,21-24
[13]Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.
[14]Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God.
[15]And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them.
[16]And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal.
[17]And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
[18]Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.
[21]For he rent Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king: and Jeroboam drave Israel from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin.
[22]For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they departed not from them;
[23]Until the LORD removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day.
[24]And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

7-year-old Guatemalan girl who died in Border Patrol custody is identified











Her name was Jakelin Caal Maquin. She had traveled with her father from a rural indigenous community in Guatemala's impoverished Alta Verapaz region.
They were among a group of 163 migrants detained by Border Patrol agents the night of December 6 -- three days after her birthday -- in a remote area of the New Mexico desert, officials said.
Two days later, 7-year-old Jakelin was dead, Customs and Border Protection's officials said Friday. She had vomited and stopped breathing while in Border Patrol custody. Jakelin later went into cardiac arrest and suffered brain swelling at a Texas hospital.
"Without the lifesaving measures undertaken by Border Patrol, this child would have likely died in the desert alone without any medical care whatsoever," a Department of Homeland Security official said Friday. "The entire department is heartbroken by this loss of life."
The department's Inspector General's office is investigating the death and said its findings will be released publicly. The US government officials spoke on a conference call with reporters and insisted they not be identified by name.

The 163 migrants included 50 unaccompanied minors

Jakelin and her father, Nery Gilberto Caal, 29, hailed from the Mayan Q'eqchi' community of Raxruhá, said Tekandi Paniagua, Guatemalan general consul in Del RĂ­o, Texas.
They were were part of a group of undocumented immigrants loaded onto a bus at 4:30 a.m. December 7 at a Customs and Border Protection operating base near the Antelope Wells port of entry in New Mexico, the CBP said. The immigrants included about 50 unaccompanied minors.
One of four agents involved in the detention conducted an initial screening, including an interview and observation to determine whether medical care was needed, according to CBP. The screening revealed no health issues, the agency said. Her father also claimed the girl was healthy on a government form.
"Our agents are almost always outnumbered in the middle of the night," the CBP official said. "There is no indication that it was a lack of attention that resulted in this. The questions were asked. The observations were made and there was no indication that she had any health conditions."
The unaccompanied minors were the first to be transported by bus to a Border Patrol station about 95 miles away in Lordsburg, New Mexico, the agency said.
When the bus departed the operating base about 12:20 a..m., the other migrants -- including Jakelin and her father -- were held inside the sally port of the Antelope Wells Port of Entry and given access to food, water and restrooms, according to CBP.

Official: 'No faster way to get her to treatment'

The bus later returned for the others. Shortly before its 5 a.m. departure, Jakelin's father told agents his daughter was sick and vomiting, the CBP said. An agent notified the station that the child would need emergency medical care.
When the bus arrived at the Lordsburg station about 6:30 a.m., the father told agents the child was not breathing, according to CBP.
A Border Patrol EMT "revived the child twice," the agency said. She had a temperature of 105.7 degrees. Local EMTs also provided care before she was transported at 7:45 a.m. by air ambulance to a Texas trauma center.
"The reality of that part of the border is there's no faster way to get her to treatment than the one she was on," the CBP official said.
At 11 a.m. on December 7, officials at the Lordsburg station were notified the girl had again been revived after going into cardiac arrest, the CBP said. A CT scan revealed brain swelling. She was breathing by machine and diagnosed with liver failure.
Jakelin died at 12:35 a.m. Saturday, the CBP said. Her father was there.
"Border Patrol Agents, including trained Emergency Medical Technicians did everything in their power to provide emergency medical assistance for Jakelin Caal Maquin immediately after her father notified the agents of her distress," CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in a statement.
"The agents involved are deeply affected and empathize with the father over the loss of his daughter... We cannot stress enough the dangers posed by traveling long distances, in crowded transportation, or in the natural elements through remote desert areas without food, water and other supplies."
CBP said it did not issue a statement about the child's death "out of respect to the family of the deceased." The agency is "currently reviewing its public disclosure and notification policy related to deaths in our custody."
On Monday, Paniagua met with Jakelin's father, who he said was devastated and was allowed by US authorities to see his daughter one last time.
The Washington Post  first reported Thursday that the girl died of dehydration and septic shock last week in El Paso after Border Patrol took her into custody when she crossed illegally with her father into the United States.
The El Paso County medical examiner has not determined the cause or manner of death, and the case is pending further studies, according to a spokeswoman.
A Department of Homeland Security representative said an autopsy would be performed but the results could take weeks.
US Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, said late Thursday in a statement he was "devastated by reports that a seven-year-old girl who was taken into Customs and Border Patrol custody died of dehydration and exhaustion. I'll be asking for a full investigation by the Inspector General and Congress into the conditions and circumstances that led to her death."
"We can do better as a nation," said Castro, a member of the House Foreign Affairs and House Intelligence committees.
"This is a humanitarian crisis and we have a moral obligation to ensure these vulnerable families can safely seek asylum, which is legal under immigration and international law at our borders."

'Worst possible outcome'

In a statement, Cynthia Pompa, advocacy manager for the ACLU Border Rights Center, called for "a rigorous investigation into how this tragedy happened and serious reforms to prevent future deaths."
"This tragedy represents the worst possible outcome when people, including children, are held in inhumane conditions," the statement said. "Lack of accountability, and a culture of cruelty within CBP have exacerbated policies that lead to migrant deaths. In 2017, migrant deaths increased even as the number of border crossings dramatically decreased."
US Rep. Beto O'Rourke, another Texas Democrat, called for transparency in the investigation of the child's death.
"I am deeply saddened by this girl's death. There must be a complete investigation and the results shared with Congress and the public," he said Thursday on Twitter.
The girl's death comes months after a toddler  died six weeks after being released  from an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement facility in Dilley, Texas. The toddler's mother and her attorneys alleged she contracted a respiratory infection after they arrived at the detention center and that ICE provided substandard medical care for the 19-month-old.

Exodus 1:11-14,16-22
[11]Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.
[12]But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
[13]And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:
[14]And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.
[16]And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.
[17]But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
[18]And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?
[19]And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
[20]Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
[21]And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
[22]And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.


No charges in Albany police shooting that left Black teen paralyzed 

By Robert Gavin and Amanda Fries
Times Union





ALBANY — An Albany County grand jury on Friday cleared city police Detective James Olsen of criminal wrongdoing in the Aug. 20 shooting of Ellazar Williams that left the 19-year-old man paralyzed from the chest down.

Olsen told investigators for District Attorney David Soares that Williams was armed with a large hunting knife and charged at him in a courtyard outside the former Tony Clement Center for Education at 395 Elk St.. Olsen said he had spotted a "shiny object" in Williams hand moments just before the encounter outside the former Tony Clement Center for Education at 395 Elk St.
"Look in his hand! Look in his hand!" Olsen yelled into his radio, according to Soares and his chief assistant, David Rossi, who announced the findings of the grand jury to reporters in the district attorney's office.

Olsen had pursued Williams following a sequence of events that began when Williams and two other people allegedly caused a disturbance outside a store on Central Avenue.

"He yelled for the other detectives to watch (Williams') hands and, as Mr. Williams was running, he tripped onto the concrete and dropped a large hunting knife," Rossi said. "Olsen ordered Mr. Williams to get on the ground. Mr. Williams grabbed the big knife and got back up. At this time, Detective Olsen indicates that Mr. Williams ignored his command and ran in his direction with the knife."
Rossi said Olsen said that at the moment he fired his weapon he believed Williams posed deadly force to himself and other detectives.
Rossi said the investigation showed that Williams was struck in his left shoulder blade.
Local activists, suggesting Williams was shot in the back, had criticized Soares for addressing Olsen's use of force against the man before prosecuting Williams on the charges he faces.

Alice Green, executive director for the Center for Law and Justice, in October had called for a special prosecutor to probe Olsen's decision to open fire on Williams after a brief chase from Central Avenue to Elk Street.

She and others feared a conflict of interest with Soares' office investigating both Olsen's use of force and Williams' case in which he faces a felony charge of menacing of a police officer and misdemeanor weapons possession. The concerns began to play out when news hit that Soares would be addressing Olsen's case first.

At one point on Friday, Green asked Soares if she could ask a question. He declined, noting it was for media but said he was open to meeting with her at another forum. She told reporters she would like to have the meeting.

"Of course I will. I'm always interested in getting to the truth," she said.
Green said she did not believe the grand jury made a good decision, but it is hard to evaluate it because she does not know what information was presented to the secret panel. She said she has heard contradictory accounts from people who might have testified before the grand jury.
Williams' lawyer, Steven Sharp, advised Williams not to testify in the grand jury proceeding, questioning why Soares was pursuing the use of force investigation ahead of Williams' charges.
Over 16 weeks, the district attorney's investigators probed the shooting "in an effort to learn as much as possible about the incident and the events that led up to it," Rossi told reporters.

Rossi said the grand jury was asked to determine whether Olsen should be charged with intentionally causing serious injury to Williams or if Olsen's use of deadly force was justified.

Evidence included video from locations around Albany, Department of Probation GPS data, detectives and numerous witnesses, including Santos Vasquez and Vasquez's cousin, Xavier Bolden, who were with Williams. Bolden was wearing an ankle monitor that contained a GPS tracker that allowed investigators to retrace his movements prior to the shooting.

Rossi, using a Power Point presentation that included video, described the sequence of events as follows:

About 2:32 p.m., Willams and Vasquez were outside the R&A grocery store at 265 Central Ave. Vasquez and the store owner - for whom he had done odd jobs - argued over Vasquez hanging out there. Vasquez and Williams went into the store. The owner told them both to leave. Williams, at the time, was not wearing a shirt.

He and Vasquez walked away. They met up with Bolden at a community center on First Street. Williams, now wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, appeared to be hiding something in his pants by his right hip, which he patted at one point.

The three men walked from First Street to Lexington Avenue and back, then south on North Lake Avenue. A surveillance camera caught Williams walking "heavy" on his right side. Bolden had a water bottle. They ended up back at the R&A grocery store. Williams pulled his hood up and tightened it. A surveillance camera showed bottles and cans were being thrown at the store. The store owner came outside and told the men to stop causing trouble and to move along. Customers saw a water bottle thrown at the store. Williams allegedly indicated he had a weapon on his right side and, according to witnesses, threatened to shoot the store owner. The owner told an employee to call 911. The three men left, walked through an alley by the store toward Sherman Street and back toward North Lake.

At 4:31 p.m., a store employee called 911 to report a fight with a gun and gave a description of a person with a dark gray hoodie. Olsen and Detectives Larry Heid and Chris Cornell, who were in a vehicle on Quail Street, were dispatched. They drove south on Quail, east on Clinton Avenue and south on North Lake where they encountered Williams, Vasquez and Bolden.

Detectives, still in their car, approached the men at North Lake and Sherman. Heid, with his driver's side window down, yelled, "Police! Stop!" Williams fled east on Sherman Street. Police followed Williams because he fit the description of the person carrying a gun. The detectives cut through a parking lot while in pursuit, turned east on Elk Street and went onto the school property.

Video showed Williams running away and showed Olsen exiting the car and chasing him. Heid and Cornell got out of the car and backed up Olsen. Williams ran to an area of trees inside the enclosed courtyard. He and Olsen faced off a concrete slab.

Video showed Williams tripped, fell and got up. Heid, who was behind Olsen, did not see Williams fall but did see a flash of chrome in Williams' right hand that Heid believed, based on the 911 call, was a gun. He believed "that they were about to be in a gun battle." He drew his gun and was ready to fire. At some point, he heard Olsen yelling, "Look at his hand" and "Get on the ground!" Heid was prepared to fire his gun, but he heard the shots and saw Williams fall. He asked Olsen to place his gun on the ground, leave the scene and step back.

Cornell said that as he entered the courtyard he heard Olsen repeatedly yelling at Williams to get on the ground and to "drop it!" From his position, Cornell could not see Williams' location. He heard two shots and saw smoke from Olsen's gun.

Cornell and Heid immediately aided Williams.

Soares declined to comment on whether he agreed with the decision of the grand jury.
"It's not a matter of me agreeing with the grand jury's decision," he said. "My obligation is to leverage the resources of this independent agency and to collect as much data as we can, and evidence, and present it to the grand jury tp allow for them to make the decision."

Asked if it was a justifiable use of force, Soares said "according to the grand jury of Albany County, on this day, that's the conclusion."

Pressed on the questions, given his stature as one of the top law enforcement officials in the Capital Region at a time of national discussion over police shootings of civilians, Soares said: "Given the climate right now in our country and everything we're observing, I can say there there is tremendous lack of understanding as to the issues surrounding the use of force."

Jude 1:5-7
[5]I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
[6]And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
[7]Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
