President Trump surprised everyone when he pardoned Dwight Hammond and his son Steven after their conviction in a so-called “arson” case in Oregon.

Eventually, Marc Rich bribed the Clintons with millions of dollars in campaign contributions to secure Bill Clinton’s pardon. Here is the full story:

Dr. Jones' most important writings came after God brought him back into the full-time ministry in 1991. It is here that all his earlier years of searching the Scriptures began to come into clear focus. He combines a knowledge of the Old and New Testaments with a personal revelation of God that began and developed during the "wilderness" period of his life, which he often refers to as God's True Bible College...
