Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part II)


Blogfessions of a Nomadic Mind Wanderer

So many times we say things about ourselves that are so demeaning, and we wonder why things are so unfavourable for us. We put negative energy in the world to multiply and follow us. Even if it’s a joke; the words are still released in the same way. It’s one of the reasons you are to blame for your misfortunes. Be kind to yourself; praise yourself for all the things you have accomplished. You are terrific, and it is time you realise the impact your presence has on the universe.

The negative energy also applies when you say things about others as well. These words may be rooted in a place of jealousy, self-disappointment, anger, conditioning, etc. Everyone goes through their insecurities, and it never helps when you say (hear) something horrible about someone else (yourself) even if it’s a joke. I was talking to someone, and they said that they get bullied on their looks, and it was meant to be a joke. They said they were used to it and I had to remind them that it was not okay even if it was normalised.

Be kind to others; they are as valuable to the universe as you are, and their impact does shape the world as you know it. Words are so powerful that they can uplift or break a person down, which can change the course of their lives in the future. Words are misused so frequently cause we never take the time to understand its origins and potential impact. Challenge yourself to spread positivity with your power for you are powerful creatures.

Do not pay any attention to what the past whispers if all it’s doing is bad-mouthing what today has to offer. There are times when you need to release the bitterness and grab a firm hold of happiness, without permission and without reason. The only way to get over the past is to leave it behind. If you spend your time re-living moments that are gone forever, you might miss the special moments that are yet to come.

Wisdom

The biggest challenge in life is being you ~ in a world to make you into someone else ~ as parents don’t let us fly alone

Remember as parents to learn from mother birds that push their baby chicks over the edge, mother bird loves her chicks but something she is taught by Mother Nature told her ” set them free so they may face the world to survive.

Don’t be parents who live through those eyes of your child that was your dream. You will suffer your beloved child failing over and over again.

Quid Pro Quo In Ukraine Relations: Why Blame Trump? Oh My God! (Long & Interesting Information)


HUGE…NO ITS MASSIVE!!! OBAMA SEC OF STATE ADMITS GUILT… “All Of Us In The Administration Were Trying To Getting Rid Of That Prosecutor”… From Obama To The Secretary of State”… “To The VP, The Ambassador” WHO WAS INVESTIGATING DNC MONEY LAUNDERING SCHEME (VIDEO)

Date: February 21, 2020 Author: evansnewsreport.com

By: Brian Evans

The Democrats have worked tirelessly since Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy to find something…ANYTHING, to try and pin on him, in their effort to prevent him from becoming the President, and now ending his Presidency…FOREVER! In fact, after the American people voted to elect him to the office, they have tried to invalidate the election, discredit the American voters who supported him, accuse him of sexual impropriety, tax evasion, business corruption, financial crimes, and even the treasonous act of working with the Russians to change the outcome of the 2016 election, which was already proven to be untrue by Mueller, but instead of President Trump working with the Russians, it appears to be the Democrats and DNC itself! Then, they tried to impeach and remove him, only to fail and then claim that the Senate’s acquittal was not legitimate! Therefore, WHY WOULD THE DEMOCRATS BE SO HELL-BENT ON GETTING RID OF THE PRESIDENT? Simply, it is because the President and his Administration are going after the real perpetrators of corruption! They are going after the criminals who have infested Washington D.C., and turned it into a rat-infested swamp! Now, as President Trump works to exterminate those rats, they are running for cover, and the best way they see to stall and thwart the President’s agenda is…LAUNCHING MASSIVE NUMBERS OF INVESTIGATIONS AT HIM, AND TO TRY AND KEEP HIM, AS WELL AS THE PUBLICS ATTENTION BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!

Meanwhile, as the Democrats desperately were desperately working to hide their own Party’s corruption, Joe Biden openly admitted to a quid-pro-quo on live-recorded television and countless other crimes that are becoming more and more apparent throughout the DNC itself!

Now, former President Barack Obama’s own Secretary of State admitted on camera that not only was Quid Pro Quo Joe involved in using taxpayer money to bribe a foreign power, Ukraine, to fire their prosecutor WHO WAS INVESTIGATING CORRUPTION THAT INVOLVED NOT ONLY JOE BIDEN’S SON BUT A MAJOR AMERICAN POLITICAL PARTY…THE DEMOCRAT NATIONAL COMMITTEE ITSELF!

The following is a video of Obama Secretary of State John Kerry at an Iowa for Biden event, ADMITTING that Biden as well as nearly all top Obama Administration officials using American money to bribe Ukraine to fire their prosecutor, WHO WAS ACTIVELY INVESTIGATING THE BIDENS, THE DNC, AND LIKELY OTHERS!

The Gateway Pundit had  previously reported that Ukraine indicted the head of Burisma, who the Democrats have defended repeatedly, in their efforts to smear President Trump! In fact, at one point, the Democrats were all about investigating election interference, but now that it involves their own members, and even the DNC itself, it is criminal to investigate the corruption, especially when it involves themselves!

Meanwhile, it came out that Ukraine’s former President Yanukovich had Illegally obtained $7.4 Billion in laundered money through a fund close…

“to US Democratic Party”


Hunter Biden: board member of Burisma from April 2014 to April 2019

The Gateway Pundit reported that…

Ukrainian Prosecutor-General indicted Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky.

The claim alleges that Hunter Biden and his partners received $16.5 million for their ‘services’

Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden took a lucrative post on the Burisma Board in 2014.
Hunter Biden was making millions from the corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas company.

New memos released earlier this month reveal Burisma Holdings, Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian natural gas company, pressured the Obama State Department to help end the corruption investigation during the 2016 election cycle just one month before then-Vice President Joe Biden forced Ukraine to fire Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor probing his son Hunter.

Joe Biden bragged about getting Viktor Shokin fired during a 2018 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations.

Also, they note how…

The Burisma indictment reveals that former Ukrainian President Yanukovich illegally obtained $17.4 billion and laundered it through an investment fund close to the US Democratic Party.

Also, Tass.com reported that…

The MP explained that this information makes up a part of a large-scale scheme of Zlochevsky’s money laundering that involved politicians from the time of ex-President Viktor Yanukovich who continued this scheme under another (now former) President Pyotr Poroshenko, with the backing of former Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine Valeria Gontareva.

“We will reveal the information about the financial pyramid scheme that was created in Ukraine and developed by everyone beginning with Yanukovich and later by Poroshenko. This system is still working under the guidance of the current managerial board of the National Bank, ensuring that money flows in the interest of people who stole millions of dollars, took it offshore and bought Ukrainian public bonds turning them into the Ukrainian sovereign debt,” Dubinksy claimed. He then added that “in both cases of Yanukovich and Poroshenko, Ms. Gontareva and companies she controls were investing the stolen funds.”

Another Verkhovna Rada MP, Andrei Derkach, claimed that the US Franklin Templeton Investments management company was also involved in the scheme. “The investigation suggests that the Yanukovichs illegally obtained $7.4 billion and laundered it through an investment fund close to the US Democratic Party as government domestic loan bonds,” he pointed out.

Then, Breitbart News reported before the Iowa Caucuses, how even the left-wing media are being forced to admit that something doesn’t pass the smell test, in regards to at least the Biden family! Breitbart wrote…

With less than one week before the Iowa caucuses, the establishment media is zeroing in on former Vice President Joe Biden and the culture of corruption that has permeated his immediate family for decades.

On Tuesday, Politico published an in-depth exposé on the financial ties between the former vice president’s younger brother, James, and a high-powered Washington, D.C., lobbyist. According to Politico, James and his wife purchased an acre of land in the U.S. Virgin Islands for $150,000 in May 2005. A year later, James resold a third of that acre to Scott Green, a national security lobbyist who previously served as a Senate staffer for Joe Biden. Green paid $150,000 for the land, even though the tax assessed value was only $38,000.

“In effect, James and [his wife] had gotten their money back while keeping most of the land—recouping their investment in just 12 months,” the outlet reported.

Any money that Green may have lost through the deal was offset when Joe Biden became vice president. In 2010, as Politico notes, Green and members of the lobbying firm he founded, the Lafayette Group, were frequent visitors at the Obama-Biden White House.

That year, Green’s ties to the Biden clan seemed to be especially beneficial. On April 11, 2010, the Lafayette Group was awarded two taxpayer-funded contracts from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The contracts, worth a total of $5.8 million, were for support services geared toward developing FEMA’s “communications strategies.”

It remains unclear what involvement Joe Biden had, if any, in the awarding of the contract to the Lafayette Group. What is clear, though, is that three days after Green’s firm received the contracts, he gave James Biden and his wife a $133,300 mortgage on their property in the Virgin Islands.

Already, Peter Schweizer, who is a senior contributor at Breitbart News noted in his newly released book “Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite“, how in Biden was not only intertwined in political scandals involving his use of his position as President and Senator to enrich himself, his son, and his family!

Joe Biden’s brother James Biden, received a sweet land deal from a lobbyist connected to his brother! James benefited in the amount of more than $1.5 billion, on the back of his brother Joe! His profit from the project, allowed him to take home more than $365 million dollars!

Joe Biden’s brother Frank profited by receiving more than $54 million in taxpayer-backed loans to Caribbean nations that involved solar energy and real estate projects, of which Frank had no experience in AT ALL!

SOUNDS A LOT LIKE HIS SON HUNTER’S SITUATION WITH BARISMA!

Then there is Joe Biden’s sister Valerie, who profited from her brother, as she received Millions, serving as Joe’s campaign manager.

Then, as we have already detailed, Joe Biden’s youngest son Hunter Biden benefited in the millions on the back of his father’s political office!

Breitbart notes how The New York Times was finally forced to admit that Schweizer’s book…

“provides building blocks for scandals involving a number of 2020 Democratic hopefuls.”

They also noted how…

Since the Times published the piece, a number of other mainstream outlets have begun digging deeper into the Bidens. Over the weekend, a sighting of Hunter Biden exiting his $129,000 Porsche, with pregnant wife in tow, at the Waldorf Astoria in Los Angles, California, was reported by both outlets on the left and the right. Likewise, new revelations of Hunter’s ongoing paternity suit in Arkansas were covered by CNN and other members of the mainstream media.

The increased publicity seems to be having an impact on the former vice president and his campaign, especially so close to Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucus on February 3. On Monday, the campaign’s rapid response director lashed out at Breitbart News after members of President Donald Trump’s legal team delivered a compelling argument at the Senate impeachment trial regarding the Bidens’ ties to Ukraine.

Ultimately, the Democrats and their media propagandists have tried to accuse the President of wrongdoing, for doing his job in investigating corruption, just as every President has done before! They have tried to turn the tables on their own Party’s Ukrainian corruption, by implicating their political foe, Donald Trump, of doing exactly what they are doing!

They refused to admit that the newly elected Ukraine President had already re-opened an investigation into Burisma, as well as, Hunter Biden and the DNC, well before President Trump even called Ukrainian President Zelensky! In fact, Reuters even wrote that these investigations had been going on for years, with a small interruption when Biden demanded the lead prosecutor be fired or lose American funds! Interfax also reported that the investigations had been resumed in May. Interfax also reported in May that the Ukrainian Prosecutor General had resumed their investigations into Burisma, a good 4-5 months before President Trump’s phone call with Zelinsky!

They tried to hide the fact that the Ukrainian government had found enough evidence to indict the head of Burisma Holdings, as well as, Hunter Biden, who served on the head of the board, and is likely next on their list of offenders! After all, before then-Vice President Joe Biden stepped in, his son was set to be indicted on corruption, as well as other charges!

They failed to note how the Ukrainian Prosecutor General indicted Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky, and that it is now becoming clear that the prosecutors are hot on the tail of Hunter, as he received a massive $16.5 million dollar payout for sitting on a board, with no experience in the oil and gas industry, nor in Ukraine, which points to something more than fishy… but it appears to be corrupt!

Tass.com reported that…

The Ukrainian Office of the Prosecutor General has drawn up an indictment against the owner of the Burisma Holdings energy company, ex-Ecology Minister Nikolai Zlochevsky, that contains information that the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, as a Burisma board member along with his partners received $16.5 million for their services, Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada MP from the ruling Servant of the People party Alexander Dubinsky told a press conference on Wednesday, citing the investigation’s materials. According to him, the money came from duplicitous criminal activity.

According to the politician, “the son of Vice-President Joe Biden was receiving payment for his services, with money raised through criminal means and money laundering.” He also clarified that “Biden received money that did not come from the company’s successful operation but rather from money stolen from citizens.”

Dubinsky stressed that the information on Hunter Biden’s income under his contract with Burisma is a “link that reveals how money is siphoned [from Ukraine].”

According to the Ukrainian MP Alexander Dubinsky, he stated on Wednesday, that a “pyramid scheme” is emerging, where they used stolen Ukrainian money, moved it offshore, and “bought Ukrainian public bonds turning them into the Ukrainian sovereign debt.”

In addition to the $16.5 million dollar payout that Hunter Biden received, he was also being paid a massive $200,000 per month salary, and all after being kicked out of college for drug abuse, and with no experience!

Now, as all these revelations begin to emerge, and more are likely to come out very soon, the Mainstream Media have their hands tied, as all evidence of corruption and money laundering, points to the Biden family, and likely other top-level DNC officials! Therefore, whatever happens in the coming months, it doesn’t look good for the Bidens, for top DNC officials, nor for the Mainstream Media who have provided cover for their corrupt, illegal, and anti-American activities. Furthermore, as various Democrats like Biden and Kerry start to sing, it could spell doom for one of the oldest political parties in America, the Democrat Party, and their Elitist thugs!

Police van chasing offender kills two schoolgirls in Jigawa, North West Nigeria


February 22, 2020 Abubakar Ahmadu Maishanu

Nigeria Police officers

A police van pursuing a commercial vehicle on Friday in Mallammadori Local Government Area of Jigawa State knocked down and killed two schoolgirls while four others were injured, residents have said. The police, however, said, only one girl was involved in the accident. The residents said the two schoolgirls were knocked down by the police patrol vehicle while chasing a vehicle that had refused to stop at a police checkpoint.

The incident resulted in a clash between the police and a mob that led to the burning of the police patrol van and the vehicle it chased. A resident, who requested not to be named, said the girls were returning home after school hours when the incident occurred.

The police spokesperson in Jigawa, Abdu Jinjiri, told reporters the police “were performing their constitutional responsibility when the unfortunate incident happened, and only one girl was affected.” He said two police officers in a patrol vehicle were chasing the suspected criminals’ vehicle when they “mistakenly knocked down a schoolgirl who was on her way home after school hours”. “However, an angry mob reacted, leading to injuring the four passengers travelling in the suspected vehicle, and burning of both the patrol vehicle and the suspects’ vehicle as well,” the police said. The police spokesperson added that the two officers have been arrested and detained for investigation, while four injured others are receiving treatment at the Hadejia General Hospital.

Subscriber Identification Mobile Contact Controversy: Buhari’s daughter disowns State Security over illegal arrest of Nigerian

The daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, Hanan, has disowned the State Security Service (SSS) in the human rights abuse allegations levelled against her by Anthony Okolie, a man detained by the SSS for 10 weeks over the use of a sim card previously used by Hanan.

Hanan’s lawyer, M.E. Sheriff, in a counter affidavit filled on Friday, agreed that the MTN sim card which caused the dispute was once used by her.

She, however, claimed not to be aware that any arrest was made by the SSS.

Hanan in the 20 paragraph affidavit obtained by PREMIUM TIMES said although she was not happy with the complaint from the public that someone else was using her former sim card, but “I have never complained to the State Security Service or any law enforcement agency in Nigeria or outside the country to make arrest of anyone.”

The president’s daughter said she is being “accused of an allegation, she knows nothing about”.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how Mr Okolie was illegally arrested and detained by the SSS. He has dragged Hanan, MTN and the SSS before a Federal High Court in Asaba for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.

He is seeking an order to “compel the respondents to jointly or severally to pay the applicant the sum of N500 million as general and aggravated damages for the gross and unlawful violation of the applicant’s right to acquire moveable properties, freedom of movement and self dignity.”

On February 12, when the matter was heard before Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, Hanan’s lawyer said there was no need to make a reply to the allegations.

The lawyer was later condemned by the judge who furiously responded saying: “What do you mean you haven’t seen a reason? Sheriff, how can you not see a reason? Somebody has accused you. Even if it is to say, ‘I didn’t do so’, can’t you respond? You’re saying you did not see a reason. Sheriff, what kind of thing is this?”

PREMIUM TIMES understands that it was the judge’s condemnation that necessitated Hanan’s counter affidavit in which she disowned the SSS.

‘False’

Reacting to the counter affidavit, Mr Okolie, in court papers seen by PREMIUM TIMES, said it is not true that Hanan did not order the arrest.

“I was told by the DSS that it was Hanan Buhari that told them to arrest me. My file was named “first family” and they called her 3 different times to come to substantiate the allegations against me but she did not show up”.

Tope Akinyode, who is representing Mr Okolie, told PREMIUM TIMES that he is confident his client will get justice through the court, being the last hope of the common man.

1 Corinthians 15:6-8


Arlin Sorensen's Thoughts on Scripture

In 1 Corinthians 15:6-8 Paul is telling the church what happened as part of the gospel story. Just to be sure we understand the gospel, it is not insightful teaching or good advice. At the core of the gospel are things that happened – actual, real, historical events. The gospel isn’t a matter of religious opinions, stories, or fairy tales; it is about real historical events. The most important event of all is that Jesus died on the Cross. Dead. Real dead. And his body was removed from that Cross and put into a tomb where it stayed for three days before being resurrected and returning to life.

It is important to remember that our sins were responsible for the death of Jesus. He did not die for a political cause, or as an enemy of the state, or for someone’s envy. Jesus died for our sins. Jesus did not…

We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.
