Jeffress has a long career of being everything one has come to expect from an American evangelical leader. For example, you can watch Jeffress, below, explain that “you can’t be saved, being a Jew,” and other awesome things. But Jeffress has been consistent in his support of elections and their outcomes. Back before Trump won the 2016 election, he was asked whether or not he would support a Hillary Clinton presidency, to which he responded: “Absolutely. I – absolutely. And I’ll go one step further. I’ll certainly be praying for her, too.”I don’t agree with Jeffress on much of anything, but I do agree that Joe Biden has won the election and we should all support Biden’s peaceful transition into the presidency and hold him to the same level of scrutiny that we hold not only Donald Trump, but every elected official.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –

Press Association The midfielder, subject of an approach from Manchester United this week, struck the post late on as Everton created the better chances of a tight Barclays Premier League contest at Goodison Park. A Seamus Coleman cross-cum-shot also rattled the woodwork as the game entered injury time but the Baggies held on for a point in a lively finish. Marouane Fellaini went the closest to scoring as new Everton boss Roberto Martinez was kept waiting for his first win as they were held to a goalless draw by dogged West Brom. The game became niggly as both sides felt they were harshly penalised for fouls by referee Roger East, who began to attract the ire of supporters. The visitors had another chance when James Morrison shot wide but they finished the first half on the back foot, scrambling clear again after a Nikica Jelavic header. Everton began the second half determined to make their superiority count but Jelavic was unable to turn in a low cross from Leighton Baines, who was also subject of a failed bid by United this week. West Brom breathed again when Coleman drove a similarly dangerous ball through the area from the opposite side. Barkley stuck a sweet left-foot shot from the edge of the area but Foster saved low to his right and Fellaini miscued the rebound. Everton maintained the tempo with Mirallas shooting straight at Foster after turning inside the area. The hosts began to grow frustrated and were almost caught out on the counter-attack when Morrison connected well from distance but Tim Howard made his first significant save. Everton almost paid the price for some sloppiness 15 minutes from time when substitute Steven Naismith was robbed by Morrison, who quickly set up Long, but again Howard saved well. West Brom boss Steve Clarke was forced to change his goalkeeper 12 minutes from time as Foster limped off. Luke Daniels took his place and was beaten all ends up as Fellaini brilliantly took a Phil Jagielka cross on his chest and dabbed past, only for the ball to rebound off the post. Arouna Kone, sent on to add fresh impetus to the Everton attack, almost stole in as West Brom struggled to clear but Daniels recovered to smother his attempt. West Brom had a scare with 90 minutes on the clock when Coleman’s cross dipped over Daniels and struck the bar, while Everton also appealed unsuccessfully for a penalty after a Barkley shot struck Billy Jones. Martinez will again feel frustrated after his side were held at Norwich in their season opener but there were plenty of encouraging signs for the Spaniard. For West Brom, who also remain winless, there are more concerns with Steve Clarke’s team looking toothless in the absence of striker Nicolas Anelka, who is on indefinite compassionate leave. Everton always looked confident and only their lack of a killer touch in front of goal let them down. The hosts pieced together their first promising move after six minutes when Steven Pienaar got a header on target from a Kevin Mirallas cross, although Ben Foster’s save looked over-flamboyant. Pienaar tested Foster again with a low shot from outside the area soon after and Ross Barkley, confidence no doubt swelled after last week’s fine performance and goal against Norwich, drove across goal. It took 25 minutes for West Brom to create a chance but Youssouf Mulumbu curled well wide from a Graham Dorrans cut-back. Everton threatened again from a free-kick but Mirallas blasted into the wall and Barkley blazed well over. Mirallas showed great skill to take a touch and then shoot from the edge of the area after a good run by Coleman but Foster tipped over.
It looked as though Allardyce’s comments would backfire on him and his player when Bony put the Swans in front, but Carroll’s brace – plus a third from returning substitute Diafra Sakho – sealed a come-from-behind victory to leave just Chelsea and Manchester City above the Hammers. Swansea ended the match a man down, with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski dismissed for attempting to impede Sakho as he bore down on goal. West Ham were quick out of the blocks and skipper Kevin Nolan had two good chances to open the scoring for the Hammers but he could not connect fully with Carl Jenkinson’s cross down the right as his volley squirmed wide. His second chance came moments later after a disguised Stewart Downing free-kick allowed him to get a shot away, with Fabianski making a smart stop and James Tomkins’ follow-up effort blocked. The visitors had been second-best up until that point but were ahead from their first chance as Jefferson Montero and Gylfi Sigurdsson exchanged passes before the former fed Bony, who coolly slotted home past Adrian for his 19th league goal of 2014 and his seventh in nine games. Swansea were having less of the ball but looked more incisive and could have doubled their lead on 26 minutes as Sigurdsson’s driven effort was pushed away by the West Ham stopper. Bony then came close to a second after Cheikhou Kouyate was robbed of possession on the edge of his own area and the Ivory Coast international arrowed a shot inches wide. Both sides were looking dangerous in possession and Aaron Cresswell came close to his second goal in a week but he could only head Downing’s pinpoint ball straight at Fabianski. Carroll may not be enjoying a similar goalscoring record as counterpart Bony, but the England international showed just what he is capable of as he rose to head home a Jenkinson cross five minutes before the break. It was Bony who once again came close on the hour-mark as he collected Montero’s pass and flashed an effort past Adrian, only to see it clip the crossbar and go behind for a goal-kick. West Ham were presented with a good opportunity to take the lead as Leon Britton was caught dawdling by Nolan, who fed substitute Sakho – with the Senegal international’s cross poked behind for a corner. And Carroll was on hand to leap highest and head home Downing’s corner – with the former Newcastle man running over to embrace Allardyce and the rest of West Ham’s bench. Things went from bad to worse for the Swans as Fabianski was shown a straight red card seconds later as he was adjudged to have fouled Sakho as he raced through on goal. Sakho came close to wrapping up the points but could only hit the post when one on one with substitute goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel before Swansea looked to hit back despite their numerical disadvantage. But West Ham added a third courtesy of a thunderous finish from Sakho, his seventh league goal, to wrap up an eighth win of the season. Two-goal Andy Carroll helped West Ham climb to third in the Barclays Premier League with a 3-1 victory over 10-man Swansea at Upton Park. Press Association Hammers boss Sam Allardyce put his neck on the line leading into the game after revealing he opted to sign Carroll rather than Wilfried Bony in the summer of 2013, insisting his decision would be vindicated in time. Bony has since lit up the league and is in a rich vein of form, while Carroll has struggled for both fitness and form since his club-record move to east London.
The time is right according to President Trump who says he plans to declassify and […]
