Breitbart: American taxpayers are continuing to fund border security measures and border walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Lebanon with President Trump’s signing of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spending bill.
While the United States-Mexico border received only $1.3 billion for construction of a border wall at the overwhelmed southern border with soaring illegal immigration, foreign countries are getting help from American taxpayers to secure their borders.
The Republican-Democrat spending bill signed by Trump last week provides Pakistan with at least $15 million in U.S. taxpayer money for “border security programs” as well as funding for “cross border stabilization” between Afghanistan and Pakistan. more …
Opinion: One would think that the US is trying to self-destruct. Oh wait, a big percentage of the nation is.
The progressive left mainstream media has been working overtime to convince the people that Donald Trump manufactured the border crisis.
Who to believe? Our BPTnews rule of thumb, look at who is on each side of the issue.
The next step is to see if the Scriptures support one side or the other and while many prophecy teachers claim that America is not mentioned in the end times we respectfully disagree.
So where is America in prophecy?
In Bible Prophecy 101 chapter 7, we take a look at Daniel’s empires. The great prophet gives us two views of world empires that would deal with Israel both in antiquity and in the latter days:
In Dan. 2:37-42 the prophet is tasked with interpreting King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream: “You, O king, are a king of kings.

- Belly and thighs: Greece (Alexander)
- Legs of iron: Rome/Constantinople

Fourth Beast: Revived Rome was first introduced in Dan. 2:40. But now, in Daniel 7:7, the prophet tells of the final Gentile world kingdom of revived Rome. A beast so wicked there is no animal comparison, trampling the residue (earth) with its feet,
