[22] Here we can observe a link between his understanding of the principle wilayat al-faqih expressed in some traditions (ahadeeth) from Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (as) and Imam al-Mahdi (as), on the one hand, and his mysticism (irfan), as, generally speaking, irfan is the spiritual teaching describing the ways of obtaining closeness to Allah and becoming a genuine muwahhid (monotheist).

LYNDHURST, N.J. — Former Vice President Joe Biden blessed the campaign of New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy on Sunday, describing the upcoming election to succeed outgoing Gov. Chris Christie as the “single most important” of the next three years — even eclipsing the 2018 midterms. In what was largely a repudiation of President Donald Trump, Biden said Democrats havent done enough to acknowledge the problems faced by many in middle-class America and said he viewed Murphy — a former Goldman Sachs executive who served as U.S. ambassador to Germany during the Obama administration — as the man to do so. “There are a lot of people out there who are freighted. Trump played on their fears,” Biden told a crowd of some 1,200 Murphy supporters packed into a community center gymnasium. “What we havent done, in my view — and this is a criticism of all us — we havent spoken enough to the fears and aspirations of the people we come from.

By DaNell Glade COBRA ON THE EVENT GF 1116 Steve: David Wilcock talks about a solar event that will make a big change to the DNA of humanity and consciousness to humans . Is this the same event that you are talking about? Cobra: Yes, exactly. What he talks about, the solar event or what Corey Goode talks about, is actually the galactic pulse triggering the sun. Every twenty-six thousand years there is a galactic pulse which triggers all the stars in the galaxy in a certain way, also of course when this galactic super wave reaches our solar system it will trigger our physical sun, in a way that Corey Goode and other are talking about. It’s part of the Event that I am describing. It is not only the activity of our physical sun but is connected to the activity to the galactic central sun and on the drastic changes on this planet and on the removal of the cabal, reset of the financial system, and the process of full disclosure and everything that is connected with that.

None of these exclusions is obvious to someone visiting the NRA Carry Guard website. “There are consumer protection issues here that are a little troubling,” says Seth Chandler, a professor at the University of Houston who teaches insurance law. “There are lots of details that someone who was serious about this insurance would want to know, and I dont see them being addressed in the FAQ. To me, the website is more of a political statement than a statement about insurance policies.” The Carry Guard website is likewise vague in describing the training. Before buying a policy, prospective Carry Guard customers are told that they’ll have immediate access to a video curriculum that will teach them about the “rights and responsibilities” of carrying a gun. Beyond the member login, the videos turn out to be just a half-dozen episodes, each less than four minutes long.
