Report Claims Fauci Granted Taxpayer Dollars To Research Using Aborted Fetal Tissue

A report was released by the nonprofit organization, The White Coat Waste Project, suggests that millions of taxpayer dollars were used to fund research using the fetal tissue of aborted babies. “A new White Coat Waste Project (WCW) investigation has uncovered that the NIH (National Institute Of Health) is actively funding over $27 million of research approved to use Human Fetal Tissue, (HFT). That $27 million is just the beginning — the NIH expects to spend over $88 million total on HFT this year,” the group explained. So far, the NIH has spent $21.6 million on fetal tissue research, which accounts for 80 percent of the award granted to the agency by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, to conduct these types of experiments.

80 Year Old Man Walks Through Blizzard To Rescue Three Cars Of People

Shannon St. Onge found herself in the thick of a blizzard on Monday evening, lost on a Saskatchewan road and peering out her rolled-down window for a glimpse of the road. But with the aid of a stranger in Vancouver who heard of her Facebook post asking for help, she and six others were saved. 80-year-old retiree, Andre Bouvier Sr., walked through the whirling snow to rescue St, Onge. On the way he found three other stranded vehicles, totaling seven people, and walking the quarter mile there and back, he led the helpless cars one by one to his home. Bouvier let the survivors sleep at his house, where they ate and laughed, and departed the next morning after he had plowed the driveway. Read more about this hero here.

 

 

 

February 10th – Hebrews 12:1-2

Hebrews 12:1-2

In today’s scripture we find the encouragement we all need to thrive in our Faith. If we first read Hebrews 11, we will find the names of some of the Heroes of The Bible. God’s people who like you and me faced many afflictions. And in Romans 15:4 we find these amazing words of comfort. “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.” Yes, we are not alone in our trials and sufferings! And by breaking down the verses in Hebrews 12, we will find the following instructions:

–        – “ …stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us…”

–         – let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us

–      –    “[looking away from all that will distract us and]…

–        –  focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity],

Over the years as I remember each and every trial and suffering in my life, I can only say that they have made my faith and love grow stronger for my Abba Father. For throughout all I have experienced His Faithfulness and tender love that endures forever!
