The TikTok-Microsoft-Trump drama, explained
Trump says he isn’t banning the app — for now — because he’s open to having Microsoft buy it instead.
President Trump won’t try to ban TikTok in the US — at least for now. On Monday, he reversed his stance on the wildly popular video streaming app and said in a White House press briefing that instead of banning it, he would allow a US-based company to purchase the app.
“I don’t mind if — whether it is Microsoft or someone else — a big company, a secure company, a very American company, buys it,” said Trump about TikTok. Trump also warned that TikTok will be “out of business in the United States” by September 15 if the company doesn’t reach a deal to sell by then.
Though TikTok, which is owned by the Chinese company ByteDance, is best known as a place where teens share short, often lighthearted musical videos, it has become the center of geopolitical controversy between the US and China over technological power.
For months, Trump and other bipartisan politicians have periodically raised concerns about TikTok as a potential national security threat, worrying that the app’s Chinese parent company could censor content in the US or access American users’ sensitive data at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party.
The company has vehemently denied these accusations. But reports last year showed a lack of TikTok content about subjects controversial with the Chinese government — such as videos of the Hong Kong protests. These reports have fueled US government suspicions that the company is influenced by the Chinese government, particularly as China has been expanding its surveillance state in recent years and US-China diplomatic relations have become more strained.
Over the past few days, TikTok reentered the spotlight when Trump told reporters on Friday evening that he planned to ban t..
Donald Trump suggests delay to 2020 US presidential election
Donald Trump has suggested November's presidential election be postponed, saying increased postal voting could lead to fraud and inaccurate results.
He floated a delay until people could "properly, securely and safely" vote.
There is little evidence to support Mr Trump's claims but he has long railed against mail-in voting which he has said would be susceptible to fraud.
US states want to make postal voting easier due to public health concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
Under the US constitution, Mr Trump does not have the authority to postpone the election himself. Any delay would have to be approved by Congress. The president does not have direct power over the two houses of Congress.
What did Trump say?
In a series of tweets, Mr Trump said "universal mail-in voting" would make November's vote the "most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history" and a "great embarrassment to the USA".
He suggested - without providing evidence - that mail-in voting, as it is known in the US, would be susceptible to foreign interference.
"The [Democrats] talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail-In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race," he said.
Mr Trump also said postal voting was "already proving to be a catastrophic disaster" in areas where it was being tried out.
In June, New York allowed voters to vote by post in the Democratic primary poll for the party's presidential candidate. But there have been long delays in counting the ballots and the results are still unknown.
US media report that there are also concerns that many ballots will not be counted because they were not filled in correctly or do not have postmarks on them that show they were sent before voting officially ended.
However, several other states have long conducted votes by post.

Sinclair says it will postpone and 'rework' segment featuring conspiracy theory about Fauci
The Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI) said Saturday it will postpone and rework a segment it planned to air this weekend that suggested Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, was responsible for the creation of the coronavirus.
The baseless conspiracy theory was set to air on stations across the country in a segment during the program "America This Week" hosted by Eric Bolling. The show, which is posted online before it is broadcast over the weekend, is distributed to Sinclair's network of local television stations, one of the largest in the country.
In a memo sent to its local television stations on Saturday, Sinclair instructed news directors to avoid airing for now the most recent episode of Bolling's show, which was supposed to include the conspiracy theory.
"After further review of this week's originally planned episode, it's clear that we need to provide additional context to the highly controversial segment regarding the COVID pandemic and Dr. Fauci," Scott Livingston, Sinclair's senior vice president of news, wrote in the memo, which was obtained by CNN Business.
"In order to meet our standard of providing an open and honest marketplace of ideas and viewpoints, even if incredibly controversial," Livingston added, "we will need to rework the segment to ensure viewers get the best information available."
The episode of Bolling's show that featured the conspiracy theory was also pulled from local Sinclair websites, where it is often posted before airing on the stations over the weekend. People now trying to access the videos on local Sinclair websites are met with an error page.
The company confirmed in a series of tweets that it had pulled the segment from this weekend's programming. A spokesperson for the company did not respond to an..

Trump announces Jacksonville part of GOP convention will be canceled over coronavirus concerns
President Trump announced Thursday that he is canceling the Republican National Convention events that were scheduled to take place next month in Jacksonville, Fla. – citing the rising numbers of COVID-19 in the state.
“The timing for this event is not right, it’s just not right,” Trump said during a press briefing at the White House. “To have a big convention, it’s just not the right time.”
Trump added: “There is nothing more important in our country than keeping our people safe.”
The Republican National Committee (RNC) last month chose Jacksonville to host major portions of the convention, after largely abandoning the city of Charlotte, N.C., over disagreements on coronavirus-related crowd restrictions.
The president and Republican officials were angered after Gov. Roy Cooper of North Carolina, a Democrat, said that because of the pandemic he wasn’t prepared to guarantee the RNC a full-fledged convention with an arena packed full of party officials, delegates and activists as desired by Trump.
While the Jacksonville portion of the convention has been canceled, Trump said that delegates will still meet in North Carolina and that he will give an address when he accepts the nomination.
The president’s announcement comes as Florida has become the most recent epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.
As of Thursday, the state had recorded more than 390,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 – including more than 9,000 in the last 24 hours – and over 5,500 deaths.
After deciding to move the celebratory aspects of the convention out of North Carolina, Jacksonville was likely attractive to GOP officials because it was the only city under consideration as a backup to ..

The Soul Who Sins Shall Die
Eze 18:1 Then another message came to me from the LORD:
Eze 18:2 "Why do you quote this proverb concerning the land of Israel: 'The parents have eaten sour grapes, but their children's mouths pucker at the taste'?
Eze 18:3 As surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD, you will not quote this proverb anymore in Israel.
Eze 18:4 For all people are Mine to judge—both parents and children alike. And this is My rule: The person who sins is the one who will die.
Eze 18:5 "Suppose a certain man is righteous and does what is just and right.
Eze 18:6 He does not feast in the mountains before Israel's idols or worship them. He does not commit adultery or have intercourse with a woman during her menstrual period.
Eze 18:7 He is a merciful creditor, not keeping the items given as security by poor debtors. He does not rob the poor but instead gives food to the hungry and provides clothes for the needy.
Eze 18:8 He grants loans without interest, stays away from injustice, is honest and fair when judging others,
Eze 18:9 and faithfully obeys My decrees and regulations. Anyone who does these things is just and will surely live, says the Sovereign LORD.
Eze 18:10 "But suppose that man has a son who grows up to be a robber or murderer and refuses to do what is right.
Eze 18:11 And that son does all the evil things his father would never do—he worships idols on the mountains, commits adultery,
Eze 18:12 oppresses the poor and helpless, steals from debtors by refusing to let them redeem their security, worships idols, commits detestable sins,
Eze 18:13 and lends money at excessive interest. Should such a sinful person live? No! He must die and must take full blame.

Welcome to DarylLawsonLive.com
Jesus Christ is about to return. And all the born again Christians who are ready for His return will be going a Heavenly banquet after the next Rapture. The Great Tribulation will follow the next Rapture.
Trump has been brought into power by the hand of God. Obama the Antichrist and Pope Francis the False Prophet have been drastically hindered in their Deep State endeavors.
There is a high possibility that the next Rapture occurs during a Trump second term if he gets re-elected.
The greatest time to be alive is now. We are the last generation before the Jesus Christ's return. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled everywhere. And the USA is right in the middle of endtime scriptures being fulfilled.
The greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit is now on all the world. The most miracles ever are are happening now. Sign and wonders and gifts of the Spirit are everywhere and increasing.
Being born again and Spirit filled is the only good option. Staying born again and daily Spirit filled is a must. 50% of all modern Christians will not make the next Rapture.
Run from all religion and run to Jesus Christ and the Bible. Pray and obey the scriptures everyday. Confess your new sins daily to God and pray the Lord's prayer and in tongues daily.
Being willingly ignorant and ignoring the facts is crazy.
It's time to get ready and stay ready 24/7.
See you online and in the next Rapture.

News Analysis: Trump's obsession with Obama turns two-way race into a three-way tangle
More than three years after leaving the White House, Barack Obama appears to have taken up renewed residency.
Not within its living quarters but, rather, inside President Trump's head.
In a barrage remarkable even by Trump's norm-demolishing standards, the nation's 45th chief executive has spent a good deal of time lately savaging the 44th.
Suddenly, a two-way race has turned into a three-way tangle.
That may have been somewhat inevitable, seeing as how Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, spent eight years in the White House as Obama's vice president; an attack on Obama is, by extension, a blow struck against his good friend and former workmate.
But political calculation aside, the volume of attacks from the president and the level of personal vitriol are of a wholly different order, transcending the usual partisan sniping. Among Obama's trespasses, Trump has accused him — without substantiation or much clarity — of committing "the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR."
Trump backers might argue that Obama started the latest round of vituperation.
In a conference call this month with alumni of his administration, the former president described Trump's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic as "an absolute chaotic disaster" and criticized the Justice Department for saying it would drop its criminal case against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
"That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk," Obama said. With 3,000 people dialing in, he must have known his remarks were bound to leak.
Trump's eruption soon followed and his molten rage has scarcely let up. In a barrage of Tweets and television appearances, he accused Ob..
Bill Gates Blasted as “Vaccine Criminal” in Italian Parliament
Billionaire “philanthropist” and population-control zealot Bill Gates is a criminal madman who must be arrested and tried for “crimes against humanity” and attempted “genocide” through vaccines, according to a firebrand Italian lawmaker who sent shock waves around the world. The member of Parliament also called for Italians to resist vaccines and Deep State tyranny. Fellow legislators applauded.
In the impassioned speech on the floor of Italy’s Parliament exposing the Microsoft founder, the parliamentarian, Sara Cunial of Veneto, charged Gates with a long list of crimes, many involving his obsession with vaccinations and population reduction. She also argued that Gates and his toadies were instrumental in shaping the Italian government's disastrous and totalitarian response to the coronavirus outbreak that shredded liberty and left many thousands dead.
Apparently MP Cunial’s fury was sparked after Nigerian lawmakers accused Gates, whom she said had numerous conflicts of interest, of trying to bribe them into approving legislation that would force mandatory vaccines on the population there. Opposition parties in Nigeria blasted the “foreign-sponsored bill” and called for the speaker to be impeached if he attempted to force it on members despite the growing resistance.
A key part of the impassioned plea revolved around Gates’ support for forcing mandatory vaccines on all of humanity. In recent weeks, Gates has repeatedly declared on multiple television programs in the United States that the world could not go back to normal unless and until virtually everybody on the planet had been vaccinated with an as-yet undeveloped, experimental vaccine.
In particular, MP Cunial slammed Gates-funded va..
FDA Halts Coronavirus Testing Program Backed by Bill Gates
An innovative coronavirus testing program in the Seattle area — promoted by billionaire Bill Gates and local public health officials as a way of conducting wider surveillance on the invisible spread of the virus — has been ordered by the federal government to stop its work pending additional reviews.
The program involved sending home test kits to both healthy and sick people in the hope of conducting the kind of widespread monitoring that could help communities safely reopen from lockdowns. Researchers and public health authorities already had tested thousands of samples, finding dozens of previously undetected cases.
But the program, a partnership between research groups and the Seattle and King County public health department that had been operating under authorization from the state, was notified this week that it now needs approval directly from the federal government. Officials with the Food and Drug Administration told the partnership to cease its testing and reporting until the agency grants further approval.
“Please discontinue patient testing and return of diagnostic results to patients until proper authorization is obtained,” the FDA wrote in a memo.
Dr. Eric Topol, director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, who is not involved in the Seattle group, said it had “emerged as leading lights in this whole COVID-19 crisis.” He said it was “bizarre” that the FDA would halt such a project.
The Seattle partnership that is conducting the testing, the Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network, said in a statement that it had been in conversation with the FDA about its program for about 10 weeks and submitted data a month ago.
“We are actively working to address their questions,” the group said.
By the end of February, those researchers ended up doing some testing anyway, discovered the first..
The Chosen is the first-ever-multi-season TV show about the life of Jesus. Created outside of the Hollywood system, The Chosen allows us to see Him through the eyes of those who knew him. No matter where you are at in your journey with Jesus Christ, this TV show is for you.
A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
I’ve been a believer my whole life, I’ve attended Christian schools my whole life, and I’ve heard the stories of Jesus countless times. I’ve also seen every Jesus movie and miniseries ever made, and there have been dozens. So why a new TV show about Jesus?
Because I have a passion for people to hear the “old, old story” again … for the very first time. When I see Jesus movies, it’s sometimes hard for me to feel moved or excited. I've heard the stories before, and many Jesus projects just take you from Bible story to Bible story, not spending as much time on the humanity and backstories of all these characters. And they sometimes feel stiff and formal.
So when we started to write a show that explores Jesus through the eyes of those around Him, we were repeatedly moved and excited. We explored the backstories of Simon Peter, Matthew, Mary Magdalene, Nicodemus, and a few of Jesus’ miracle recipients, and in turn experienced Him in the way they did. We couldn’t help but identify with their recklessness, rough pasts, religious piety, and desperation for life change. And ultimately, their redemption.
One of our favorite responses from an early screening? "The story of Jesus that actually appealed to my teenagers!"
No matter where you’re at in your journey with Christ—whether you’re one of the many people in the gospels who encountered Jesus after a horrific past without Him, or you’re a Nicodemus who’s been a lifelong member of the God team—Jesus proved over and over that we have so much to learn and innumerable trait..
President to Sen. Graham: Call Obama to testify about 'political crime'
President Trump is urging Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to call former President Obama as a witness in the panel's investigation of the origins of the Russia probe.
"If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama," he wrote on Twitter. "He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!"
Graham has said "no president is above the law," but regarding Obama testifying, he's "greatly concerned about the precedent that would be set by calling a former president for oversight."
"As to the Judiciary Committee, both presidents are welcome to come before the committee and share their concerns about each other. If nothing else, it would make for great television. However, I have great doubts about whether it would be wise for the country," he said.
The Washington Examiner noted the pressure from the White House compounds growing impatience with Graham from the right. His critics point out he has been vowing to investigate Obama-era officials who launched the Trump-Russia investigation.
Trump's tweet followed the release of transcripts last week showing Obama officials testified under oath they saw no evidence of Trump campaign collusion with Russia in 2016. Meanwhile, they were giving television interviews insisting they had evidence.
Last week, evidence in the Michael Flynn case was unsealed confirming the former national security adviser's claim that the FBI intended to get him to lie.
The Examiner noted Trump's tweet also followed the release Wednesday of a memo, declassified by acting Director..

Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Act_4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Joh 3:3 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God."
1Jn 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
1Jn 4:2 This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God. 1Jn 4:3 But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.

More Evidence Trump Is Working With Bill Gates’ Vaccine Under “Operation Warp Speed”
Dan 11:32 He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him.
Rev 13:11 Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon.
Rev 13:12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.
Rev 13:13 He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching.
Rev 13:14 And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life.
Rev 13:15 He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.
Rev 13:16 He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead.
Rev 13:17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.
