HILLARY CLINTON’S AND OTHER DEMOCRATIC INDISCRETIONS

In the beginning!

As 27-year-old staff attorney for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate Investigation, Hillary Rodham was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifmann

d629691f1fad3ad8aec6c329a3dfd1b3When asked when Hillary Rodham was fired, Zeifmann said, in an interview,”Because she was a liar.She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House and the Rules of the Committee, and the rules of confidentiality “

1. Hillary Clinton when husband, Bill, was President !!

Remember when Bill was president?

If you’re over 35, you lived through it, so read it and recollect. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten! For those under 35, read this, verify and don’t forget.

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over an attempt to health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t get a vote in a Democrat controlled US Congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then, President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.

Next, she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms.Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners WebHubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger voters will have no knowledge of “Travelgate”. Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

• She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. AFter the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
• She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.
• After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs. Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives. Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell person – ready for another four or eight years of this “terrific person”?

Now we have been exposed to the unsecure keeping and attempted destruction of beyond Top Secret emails while Hillary was US Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation. What “shoe will fall” next?

2. Obamacare Unknowns !!

Why the upcoming election is so important:

Amazing what little value those who are US citizens get from these numbers.

Remember this in November 2016

As a brief reminder for those who forgot or for many that didn’t know

Here is what happened, quietly, on January 1, 2016:

1. Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%

2. Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%

3. Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%

4. Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%

5. Dividend tax went from 15% to 39.6%

6. Estate tax went from 0% to 55%

7. A (3.5%) Real Estate transaction tax was added.

*** Remember these facts:
*** These taxes were all passed solely with Democrat votes.
*** Not a single Republican voted for these new taxes.
*** These taxes were all passed in the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

4. How about our CA Democratic Senator!!

screen-shot-2016-10-15-at-1-14-00-pm
The US has entered into an exclusive contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The sale of these properties will fetch about $19 billion. A regular real estate commission will be paid to that company. That company is CRI. CRI will be making a minimum of 3% and as much as 6% commission on each and every sale. CRI belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Richard Blum is the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune from these transactions. (EST at between $950 million and $1.1 billion!!) How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with organizing and lobbying such a sweet deal? Has our government become so elitist that they have no fear of oversight? Isn’t this a cousin to insider trading?

Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune  from these transactions. (EST at between $950 million and $1.1 billion!!) 

How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with organizing and lobbying such a sweet deal?   

Has our government become so elitist that they have no fear of oversight?     Isn’t this a cousin to insider trading?

5. How have we done in 8 years under President Obama? Not Good!!
Better than these Trump charts might suggest. (Dan’s note)

6. Federal Law regarding Hillary Clinton’s destruction of her e-mails !!

Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton’s private email server illegal, it “disqualifies” her from holding any federal office.

He very specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071. Here’s what it says:

(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. Yes, it explicitly states “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”

7. How about the F.B.I. investigation re. Hillary Clinton’s e-mails?

When James Comey decided not to indict Hillary Clinton, the whole American public was shocked. Everyone expected him to charge Hillary.

However, now we now the real reason why Comey didn’t charge Hillary. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

When our source called the Chinatown offices of D.C. law firm DLA Piper and asked for “Peter Comey,” a receptionist immediately put him through to Comey’s direct line. But Peter Comey is not featured on the DLA Piper website.

Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper. James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing.

DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them. DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base.

DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs.

And here is another thing: Peter Comey has a mortgage on his house that is owned by his brother James Comey, the FBI director.

Trickle-down corruption.

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

He lied. He has in fact politicized the FBI— that is supposed to support the Rule of Law.

The FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton needs to be re-opened, Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch should recuse themselves and Congress should demand the appointment of a Special Prosecutor.

As you can see, Hillary is tightly connected to Comey. If you still didn’t know why Hillary wasn’t indicted, now you know!

8. A little information on V.P. candidate Tim Kaine!!

Tim Kaine (D-VA), the Democratic Vice Presidential nominee’s association to the Muslim Brotherhood has been exposed and cavalier during his term as Senator. Kaine has long been connected to the Muslim brotherhood front Muslim American Society (MAS). Mahdi Bray, head of MAS, aided Senator Kaine’s election, signing up 65,000 Muslim voters. Kaine then appointed another MAS leader to the Virginia commission on immigration. The Muslim Brotherhood and Kaine both want increase Muslim settlement in America. “Anyone, elected to Congress who attempts to get comprehensive immigration reform passed is trying to get the “MVP” award from ISIS and Al Qaeda.” He is obviously not an Islamophobe!!

9. Charles Krauthammer on the Clinton Foundation!!

Recently, Charles Krauthammer alluded that he had no doubt some of the 30k emails Hillary deleted from her private e-mail server very likely had references to the Clinton Foundation, which would be illegal and a conflict of interest.

The Clinton Foundation is “organized crime” at its finest.

Here is a good, concise summary of how the Clinton Foundation works as a tax-free international money laundering scheme.

It may eventually prove to be the largest political criminal enterprise in U.S. History.

This is a textbook case on how you hide foreign money sent to you and repackage it to be used for your own purposes.

All tax-free. Here’s how it works:

1. You create a separate foreign “charity.” In this case, the Clintons set it up in Canada.

2. Foreign oligarchs and governments then donate to this Canadian charity. In this case, over 1,000 did — contributing mega millions. I’m sure they did this out of the goodness of their hearts, and expected nothing in return. (Imagine Putin’s buddies waking up one morning and just deciding to send untold millions to a Canadian charity).

3. The Canadian charity then bundles these separate donations and makes a massive donation to the Clinton Foundation.

4. The Clinton Foundation and the cooperating Canadian charity claim Canadian law prohibits the identification of individual donors.

5. The Clinton Foundation then “spends” some of this money for legitimate good works programs. Unfortunately, experts believe this is on the order of 10%. Much of the balance goes to enrich the Clintons, pay salaries to untold numbers of hangers on, and fund lavish travel, etc. Again, virtually tax-free, which means you and I are subsidizing it.

6. The Clinton Foundation, with access to the world’s best accountants, somehow fails to report much of this on their tax filings. They discover these “clerical errors” and begin the process of re-filing 5 years of tax returns.

7. Net result — foreign money goes into the Clinton’s pockets tax free and untraceable back to the original donor. This is the textbook definition of money laundering.

Oh, by the way, the Canadian “charity” includes as a principal one Frank Giustra. Google him. He is the guy who was central to the formation of Uranium One, the Canadian company that somehow acquired massive U.S. Uranium interests and then sold them to an organization controlled by Russia. This transaction required U.S. State Department approval, and guess who was Secretary of State when the approval was granted?

As an aside, imagine how former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell feels.

That poor schlep is in jail because he and his wife took $165,000 in gifts and loans for doing minor favors for a guy promoting a vitamin company.

Not legal but not exactly putting U.S. Security at risk.

Sarcasm aside, if you’re still not persuaded this was a cleverly structured way to get unidentified foreign money to the Clintons, ask yourself this: Why did these foreign interests funnel money through a Canadian charity?

Why not donate directly to the Clinton Foundation? Better yet, why not donate money directly to the people, organizations and countries in need?

This is the essence of money laundering and influence peddling.

Now you know why Hillary’s destruction of 30,000 e-mails was a risk she was willing to take.

Bill and Hillary are devious, unprincipled, dishonest and criminal and they are Slick!

10. Muslim’s in our government !!

Without Trump America WILL rapidly become a Muslim nation: Hillary wants open borders, and bring 500,000 more Muslims to America.

This information has all been checked, then double checked… it is 100% Correct.

That’s why there is such an alarm within US government, since Trump’s statement about temporary suspension of migration of Muslims to the US until US authorities make sure there is a proper concept of safe penetration of U.S. territory.

People are stunned to learn that the head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim! Do hope this wakes up some! Until it hits you like a ton of bricks read it again, until you understand! We now have a Muslim government!

John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia.

Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.

Hillary Clinton’s top adviser, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are still involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt!

Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security,

Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim . Homeland Security Adviser, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.

Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim .

Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim

. Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint Rep Andre Carson, D-Ind, a Muslim , as the first Muslim lawmaker on the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, of all things! It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has he suggested that U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran!!!

Valarie Jarret wrote her college thesis on how she wanted to change America into a Muslim friendly nation and she is an Obama top advisor! Congressman Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an, NOT the Bible!

Conservative Congresswoman Michele Bachman, R-MN, was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government!

Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East!

The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!

Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us! It can only get worse!

In his book Obama said, “if it comes down to it, I will side with the Muslims”.

11. Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan !!

Check out what is happening with the Mslims in Dearborn, Michigan; and his is only the beginning and there is a possibility that we might elect the first female President of the U.S. who will bring more of them in !!

How do you like one wife and 3 more wives on Welfare !!! Are we crazy or WHAT !?!

A News Report from Dearborn, Michigan:

You can’t work in the school system front offices if you don’t speak Arabic now and you need to know many dialects as some Arabs can’t understand others’ Arabic language.

Everybody goes back to the homeland for months and then expects to get passed on to the next grade. Kids (assuming girls, but can’t tell for sure) roam the hallways in full-blown burkas. Kids attending classes can’t speak or understand English.

All school monies are being moved from the English end of town (Irish, Polish, Italian, etc.) to the east end (95% Arabic) in the attempt to prop up the poorly performing schools.

Six graders are reading at a 3rd grade level. Forget math and sciences.
Everybody gets free breakfasts and lunches after being dropped off in Land Rovers and the other cars of choice here are Mercedes or Escalade.

It is very common to have 3 families live in 1 house. All garages are being converted into living spaces complete with stoves (against all codes) and the city council can’t find the nerve to enforce the safety regulations.

Cars end up parked all over the streets affecting snow plowing, garbage pick up and ambulance runs.

12. Hillary Clinton in Beaumont, Texas!!

Channel 12 in Beaumont Texas did the reporting. The story appears on Beaumont TV station Channel 1. According to the Beaumont newspaper and reports from a couple of Beaumont TV stations this really happened. Why did Hillary REALLY visit Beaumont, Texas – Got to read this!

Hillary Clinton made a campaign stop yesterday in Beaumont, Texas. Only six people were there to greet her. Her security detail outnumbered her supporters by quite a bit. She wouldn’t talk, wave to, or even acknowledge those there to greet her. As bad as that is, it’s not the real story here.

The real story is who she took a private meeting with. After landing, Clinton headed off to a fundraiser in West Beaumont, where she was greeted by around 150-200 Muslims, most of whom were of Pakistani origin. The event was held by Pakistani businessman Tahir Javed and Hillary raised approximately $500,000 by pandering to Muslims, making it “one of the top five private fundraiser’s Clinton has had in this country.” She’s bought and paid for by them. You will not see thisin the Liberal newspapers nor see it on the main stream Liberal TV stations!!

13.. Why can’t we be like Putin on this issue !?!

* This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.*

* It is a sad day when a Communist Leader makes more sense than our LEADERS here in the U.S.A. but here it is!*

*Vladimir Putin’s speech – SHORTEST SPEECH EVER.* *Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia: *

*”In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.*

*”Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of* *America, England**, Holland and France, **if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.*

*”When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.”*

*The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.*

14. So who is this Donald Trump!?!

My wife and I went to a Donald Trump rally at Treasure Island Hotel here in Las Vegas. We just wanted to see firsthand if there was any substance to this phenomenon. We like two other candidates, so we felt we would be objective. It was absolutely packed, standing room only and probably 200-300 out in the lobby that couldn’t get in. We were lucky to get a couple of great seats. Oh, it was FREE and no one was hawking horns, wearing hats or bumper stickers either. All the major news networks and cameras lined up across the back aimed at the podium.

Before it started, Phil Ruffin the owner of TI (a high school educated, self made Billionaire) came out and thanked everyone for coming to his hotel and shared a couple of quick stories relative to him and Trump over the years. Just before Trump came out (unbeknownst to anyone, he was out in the lobby thanking folks for coming, even though they could not get in and had to watch on monitors). Phil pointed to the media and said they would never report on what he was about to say and Donald would kill him for saying it anyway. He said a few weeks ago he and Donald were talking about the race and Trump said he was very fortunate to have all the “free” advertisement that he was getting and said that although he had spent $2 million (of his own money) he probably had saved $20 million that some of the other candidates had to spent so far. So, he wrote a check for $2 Million to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. And Ruffin was right, you never saw or heard a word of it anywhere!

Donald spoke for an hour and a half without a note, without a teleprompter, cue cards, NOTHING! The most talked about thing that he said that was reported in the press was he said Bergdahl should have been executed for deserting! Before he said that, he said he had just heard that he would not get any jail time and alluded to the five dangerous prisoners that were traded for him and after he expanded on the “executed” remarked that 30-50 years ago he would have been.

Anyway, you get the drift. Several times he challenged the news cameras to pan the audience to see the size, etc. and they would not do it. Like he said, they will keep the cameras on him just waiting for a screw up sound bite.

He was thoughtful, articulate, energetic, smart, confident, humorous and of course brash but not at all over the top. He was passionate about taking care of former, current and future military veterans and he meant it. He talked about immigration of course, the bogus Iran agreement, etc. He did a great job in layman’s terms of explaining our trade imbalance and it’s cause and effect on our economy and jobs. And I absolutely believe this guy will produce jobs.

I think his main appeal to me is there will be damn few, if any retread career politicians of either party working for him. I firmly believe if he was indeed fortunate enough to be elected he would, without a doubt bring to his administration the best, brightest, toughest and courageous people ever assembled in Washington. Like he says, “you have to be tough and smart!” not tough and dumb or smart and weak!

15. Why should I now vote Democratic!?!

#10. I vote Democratic because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.

   #9. I vote Democratic because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn’t.

   #8. I vote Democratic because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

   #7. I vote Democratic because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

   #6. I vote Democratic because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

   #5. I vote Democratic because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

   #4. I vote Democratic because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

   #3. I vote Democratic because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

   #2. I vote Democratic because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

And, the #1 reason

   I vote Democratic is because I think it’s better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America. We don’t care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.

Final Points !! It will be a tragedy for the country if Hillary Clinton becomes the President of the U.S.A. but possibly worse is that Bill Clinton will again be loose in the Oval Office. Keep your daughters away from the White House, please!!

I Don’t Care What Trump Said: I Care What Hillary Will Do

This is the title of an article written by Mychal Massie on October 11, 2016. I do care what Trump said 11 years ago but on balance it will never be enough to sink his ship allowing Hillary free rein to dictate the destruction of the America that many of us respect and love. Massie with colorful language articulates what Hillary will do compared to what Trump has said. At the end of Massie’s article, note his credentials. Now before you stand on the moral tower high and lifted up, hear Massie  as he exposes the hypocrisy of this lady and her family.

thUnlike Clinton Zombies, I Care What Hillary Will Do

I continue to support Donald Trump for president, his not uncommon locker room braggadocio notwithstanding. I continue to support him because his observations pursuant male/female consensual adult sexual relations are no comparison to what the composition of the Supreme Court will be if Hillary Clinton is allowed to steal the election.
I’m not withdrawing my support because remarks he made 11 years ago, or last week, in no way impacted the respectful manner in which his female employees are treated. His remarks didn’t translate into a hostile work environment for women.

I am not withdrawing my support for Donald Trump because I am beyond outraged with the pernicious duplicity of the media and politicians who themselves are guilty of far more than just hollow words. And I particularly appalled at false piety.

Bill and Hillary Clinton rode into Washington on waves of sexual scandals, and proven accusations of bigotry and racism.Dolly Kyle author of the book “Hillary: The Other Woman,” was Bill Clinton’s lover during their time together in high school and during his marriage. Kyle tells of Hillary calling disabled children who were invited to an Easter egg hunt at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion “Fu*king ree-tards.” Kyle wrote that Hillary called the people of Arkansas “ignorant hillbillies.” Kyle wrote of Hillary referencing Jews as: “Stupid Kike[s]” and “fu*king Jew bastard[s]. Kyle joins a legion of people who insist that Bill Clinton called Reverend Jesse Jackson a “g**damned nigger.” The media saw nothing wrong with those remarks; in fact, the media and politicians ignores Hillary’s racism and anti-Semitism.

Donald Trump’s locker room talk didn’t result in Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willy being raped and Paula Jones being beaten. Donald Trump didn’t say when you drive through a trailer park Paula Jones is what you get – but the Clinton campaign did.
Donald Trump’s legacy is not stains on a blue dress. Does the media and dirty tricksters really want us to believe Mr. Trump’s earthy comments are worse than Bill Clinton using cigars as sexual devices on a White House intern in the Oval Office?

What Mr. Trump said 11 years ago or 1 year ago isn’t the same as Hillary Clinton abandoning Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Ambassador Stevens, and Glen Doherty to be murdered in Benghazi. Mr. Trump’s “alpha boasting” did not contribute to the national debt, to 95 million Americans being out of the job force, 50 million Americans being on food stamps, porous borders, terrorism in our streets, loss of jobs, ad nauseum.

Rapper Rick Ross has written the most vulgar and sexually graphic songs in the history of rap. One of Ross’s so-called songs was about about him drugging and raping “ho’s.” The media wasn’t interested when the hip-hop mogul attended an Obama White House event promoting the “empowerment” of black and Latino youth. Ross attended in full rap regalia complete with a court ordered ankle monitor as a condition of his release for kidnapping and assault charges. And these same people feign insult about locker room talk?

I support Donald Trump regardless of his “locker roomisms” because those comments aren’t the issue. The jobs report month ending was abysmal and economic indicators are telling us we will be in a full-blown recession by the general election.

Donald Trump’s remarks pale in comparison to Hillary telling Wall Street financiers it was necessary to deceive the public for her to carry out their mission. Mr. Trump’s alpha boasting in no way compares with Bill Clinton laughing and boasting that Hillary was making a mockery of FBI, et al.

I refuse to allow another candidate that We the People support to be destroyed as Karl Rove, the media, and politicians on both sides of the aisle did to Herman Cain. Do you not find it remotely curious that Karl Rove, the media, and amoral politicians say and do as they please with impunity but those we support are tarred and forced to drop out of races for saying and/or doing things that are not tangentially close to the words and actions of treasonous politicos?

It seems the only time it matters what a person running for office says is when it is someone We the People support. Well, not this time. We have real issues that must be addressed and jocular remarks made by Donald Trump 11 years ago or six months ago are not in the same discussion with what will happen if Rove helps Hillary steal this election.

I don’t care that Mr. Trump made off-color comments. I care that the next president will shape the Supreme Court for next 30-40 years. I care that the next president will either abolish obamacare or find a way to prop it up. I care that the next president will either protect our borders or allow illegals to flood our cities at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars annually. I care that the next president will either respect the Constitution or deprive us of our Second Amendment rights.

We have significant concerns facing this nation and the absolute least of those concerns is a Mr. Trump comment in a sexually explicit conversation. Good grief, by the standards of these infidels David would not have remained King of Israel.

Today he serves as founder and Chairman of the Racial Policy Center (RPC), a think tank he officially founded in September 2015. RPC advocates for a colorblind society. He was founder and president of the non-profit “In His Name Ministries.” He is the former National Chairman of the conservative Capitol Hill think tank, Project 21; and a former member of its parent think tank, the National Center for Public Policy Research.

Can We Judge the Christianity of Donald Trump?

Another title I might have used for this piece is, “Why I Will Not Be Voting for Trump in the Primaries.”

I find it a little amusing when a person throws up the all world defense by quoting a passage of scripture when it comes to the question about judging, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” After all a person can’t get much better support than the scripture even if it is taken out of context and one’s interpretation contradicts other teaching in that same scripture.

Michael Brown is a man who I have great respect for. Few possess his mastery of both Hebrew and Greek the original languages of scripture. He has also evidenced a lifestyle and ministry that reflects his understanding of that same scripture that is a model for all . In my view he is at the top of my list of those I would want to hear when it comes to that difficult question concerning judging. What he has recently shared in his blog “In The Line of Fire” on Friday, February 19, 2016, you will find below.

Donald Trump has challenged the Christianity of Ted Cruz while also raising questions about the nature of Ben Carson’s faith. In the past, he also suggested that President Obama might be a Muslim rather than a Christian. Now, the pope has questioned the Christianity of Trump.

It appears that what goes around, comes around.

Trump’s immediate response was to call Pope Francis’s comments “disgraceful” and to state that, “No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith.”

So, Trump can question the faith of others but the Pope cannot question his?

In defense of Trump, Jerry Falwell, Jr., has stated that, “I have no doubts that he is a man of faith, that he’s a Christian.”

Welcome to the 2016 version of the presidential race, representing reality TV at its most unscripted and bizarre.

Two serious questions, though, are begging to be asked.

First, according to the Bible, do we have the right to judge someone’s profession of faith, let alone the mandate to?

Second, if we are called to judge, what are the criteria?

On the one hand, the Bible tells us repeatedly that only God knows the heart and in that sense, only He knows who belongs to Him and who doesn’t. At the same time, the Bible repeatedly calls us to examine what a professing Christian believes and to evaluate how that person lives, to judge the tree by its fruit, as Jesus put it.

Using that criteria, we know, for example, that Richard Dawkins is not a Christian, since he denies the existence of God, the authority of Scripture, and the atoning death and bodily resurrection of Jesus. We also know that Osama bin Laden was not a Christian, since he was a radical Muslim and an unrepentant mass murderer.

In the same way, albeit in a much less extreme fashion, we know that our friendly next-door neighbors are not Christians when they demonstrate no understanding of their own sin, no recognition of their need for forgiveness, and no knowledge of who Jesus really is or why He died on the cross. And we can say this with certainty even if they attend church services every year at Easter and Christmas.

A Christian believes core Christian doctrines and lives a basic Christian lifestyle.

The Christian faith begins with an acknowledgement of our sin and a profession of faith in our Savior and is then evidenced by a godly life – not a perfect life, but a godly life. As Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matt. 7:21)

James (Jacob) echoed this saying, “Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works” (James 2:18b).

In other words, talk is cheap. Let’s see how you live.

That’s why Paul could contrast the works of the flesh with the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:17-23), adding, “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires” (Gal. 5:24).

That’s why Paul could also state plainly that no adulterer or drunkard or practicing homosexual would enter God’s kingdom (among other lifestyles; see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Ephesians 5:5-7; Galatians 5:17-21), also noting, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor. 6:11).

How does Donald Trump line up?

We know that in the past he boasted about his numerous adulterous affairs and that he built the first casino in America with its own strip club, actually featuring 36,000 square feet of adult entertainment. Yet he sees no need to ask for forgiveness for these past acts (which are just a small sampling of ungodly behavior) because he is “a very good person.”

This is the opposite of Christianity, which begins with a recognition of guilt and an open confession of our need for forgiveness. As for Donald Trump, at no point in any interview that has ever been conducted with him has he offered the slightest understanding of the heart of the gospel.

That alone would indicate that Trump is a not a real Christian.

As for his conduct, while we have no idea how he lives in private, and while he presumably has many good qualities that are commendable, we do know that his public conduct is often deplorable, with his tweets and comments violating almost every standard of Christian decorum.

This is the standard Paul laid out for followers of Jesus: “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen” (Eph. 4:29, NIV).

Trump’s vitriolic, nasty, often vulgar, sometimes patently false attacks on others violate this verse from beginning to end, both in spirit and in letter. And remember that it was Jesus who told us that it was out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.

Jesus also “told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt [does this sound familiar to you at all?]

‘Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector [remember that in New Testament times, tax collectors were notoriously corrupt].

‘The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: “God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.”

‘But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, “God, be merciful to me, a sinner!”

‘I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted'” (Luke 18:9-14).

Which one sounds like Donald Trump, the Pharisee or the tax collector? And which is more characteristic of Mr. Trump, the person who exalts himself or the person who humbles himself?

Again, God is the ultimate judge, but He does tell us to judge the tree by its fruit, and that means that Donald Trump could really use our prayers.

You may still plan to vote for him to be president, even though he shows no true signs of being a genuine Christian (although it’s clear he believes he is one). That’s obviously your call entirely.

But let’s not foolishly proclaim him to be a Christian when, until recently, many of his ardent supporters acknowledged that he was not.

And just consider what a world changer Donald Trump could be if he really knew the Lord. Through prayer and God’s mercy, it could happen.

After reading the above insights by Dr. Brown, once again, especially as a minister, I remember the times when those whom I respect have come to me, judged my actions with love and with the support of scripture. Did they have a right to do that? They absolutely did and with the clear instruction of Scripture. Judgment should always be for the purpose of correction giving the person judged the opportunity to seek forgiveness and make things right. It should never be with a critical intent to hu;rt or destroy the person being judged.

Is This the Biggest Lie the Church Is Swallowing Hook, Line and Sinker?

Flickr-ballot

The ever increasing popular notion that the church is to have no part in politics is absurd. (Flickr/Creative Commons)
One of the biggest lies the church has swallowed is that politics cannot legislate morality. Yet on the watch of the last two generations, politics has legislated prayer and Bible reading out of our schools, abortion into our clinics and, more recently, same sex marriage into our culture. Why was the church so lame and silent?

Haven’t we learned that when the righteous abandon their responsibilities, the wicked move in?

Yes, the Bible says that we are in the world, but not of it. But Jesus commanded us to go into all the world and preach the gospel (Mark 16:15), and to be salt and light to the world (Matt. 5:13-14). Mind you, this is a direct commandment from the Creator of the universe Himself. So why separate religion or the gospel from politics? Politics is a part of the world.

The ever-increasing popular notion that the church is to have no part in politics is absurd. The notion that presidents don’t need to be morally upright or spiritually minded is delusional.

Why don’t you just vote for the village idiot then? Vote for the adulterer, the thug and the like. I’ve heard it many times already in this election—”we’re not electing a pastor or a priest but a president!” And that lie keeps being repeated by robotic minds who are not thinking for themselves. This train of thought is so contradictory to Scripture and our nation’s history. More on that later.

Would you want your surgeon working on your heart if you knew he had lawsuits against him for malpractice?

Would you want a banker handling your money if you knew he was a thief?

Would you want a baby sitter watching your children who had been charged with pedophilia?

Does character not count?

Then why was God’s nation of Israel, when forming their own government, commanded to elect able men (yes, competence does matter, so don’t accuse me of throwing that out), such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness (Ex. 18:21)? And be mindful that this was not the flow of authority for church government but for Israel’s federal government. We’ve gotten that backward in the church, too. Now we know that God’s practices in the New Testament have changed, but aren’t His principles the same?

It’s not that we’re trying to make our government an entirely Christian government or make every elected official a Christian, but when given a choice, why would a Christian vote for an unrighteous candidate over a righteous one? Why are there still so many in the church who can’t see this and continue to vote for unrighteousness?

This is the very reason we’ve had a horrible spiritual and moral deterioration in our nation for the last eight years. I salute my good friend Dr. Michael Brown for calling out those pathetic pastors for laying hands on Hillary Clinton (“Shame on the Pastors”), and praying blessing over her and declaring how God would anoint her and be a shield of protection for her.

How can these so-called pastors bless a candidate who calls good, evil and evil, good—who is an aggressive pro-abortionist and gay marriage activist, and who lies and cheats and kills? Why? And why do so many so called Christians continue to vote for such candidates of ill repute, election after election?

How many times must you vote for money over morals, competence over character, and party over principle?

I can hear the critics and their robotic babble now holding up their thou-shalt-not-judge card. Who are you to judge? In fact, I’ve been ordained by God to be a judge. Not just because I am a minister, but all God’s saints have this honor (1 Cor. 6:2).

God Himself has set up judges. There’s even an Old Testament book called the book of Judges where He did just that. How much more are we called to judge spiritual matters under the New Testament? This is another one of those lies that unlearned Christians pick up from the world.

Matthew 7:1 is the verse that these people always quote. When Jesus condemned judging, he wasn’t implying we should never make judgments about anyone. After all, a few verses later, Jesus Himself calls certain people “pigs” and “dogs” (Matt 7:6) and “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (7:15). Is He telling us not to do something He Himself did? No. What Jesus condemns is a critical and judgmental spirit, an unholy sense of superiority coming from those who are guilty of the same sin or offense.

Back to my theme on politics and morality and voting for righteousness.

Our earliest presidents and politicians were godly moral men. Our earliest pastors were involved and engaged in politics. There was an overlap of church and state, government and spirituality.

For example, did you know that 29 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were seminary graduates, and a large majority of the rest of them were committed Christian leaders who spoke boldly about their faith?

The progressives and our humanistic government officials would like us to believe that the framers of the Declaration of Independence were a bunch of secularists and so-called Deists, but it is such a distortion of history. The hijacking of our nation has resulted in many of these elements being removed from our history books.

Here are some quotes from early American presidents:

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”—George Washington

“The Bible is the sheet anchor of our liberties. Write its principles upon your heart and practice them in your lives.”—Ulysses S. Grant

“All the food from the Savior of the world is communicated through this book. All the things desirable to man are contained in it.”—Abraham Lincoln

Fellow Christians, please don’t make the same mistake that many professing Christians made in the last election. Hear me now and hear me well: It was not the lost sinners who determined this president we now have, but it was the church that elected him and they are held accountable. And it shall be the same in this election.

God has taken note of those in the church who have stood in favor of abortion and gay marriage and they are responsible for the apostasy that continues to spread across this nation. They voted for the voice of the deceiver whose smooth words fooled them. Don’t be fooled again. You see, when the church votes for those who favor these abominations, they are guilty of those abominations themselves.

God has been patient and merciful. Make sure you vote for righteousness this time around. As it was with the last election, so it is with this one. God has handed this upcoming election into the hands of the church.

And finally, whatever happens, our trust must be in God and in His kingdom. But as long as we can make an impact for righteousness in this world, we should and are called to do so.

Christians Must Not Divide Because of Their Political Views

                           Republican candidates verbally spar in a debate. (Reuters)

Dr. Michael Brown puts forth a view that should be helpful to any Christian who seeks to be a responsible citizen. I appreciate his fairness with those who may be of a different opinion. I believe he models for Christians the way we ought to pursue what we believe to be the right choice but always in kindness recognizing there may be other thoughtful views. Read his latest post below for the purpose of being edified.

If you’ve been following my ministry for any length of time, you know I constantly address issues of concern to me in the news, whether they have to do with moral, cultural or spiritual issues and whether they pertain to America, Israel or the nations.

So, it should not surprise you that I’m frequently addressing the presidential elections, often with conviction and strong points of view.

That being said, if you and I love God and Jesus is our Lord and the Word of God is our final authority, it is important THAT WE DO NOT DIVIDE over these issues, as passionate as we might be.

We can respectfully agree to disagree without engaging in sinful judgment against one another, and above all, we can give ourselves to the gospel and pray for God’s best for our nation.

I endorsed Sen. Cruz because I was convinced that he was a committed believer who shared my core values and that he had a proven record of taking on the Republican (and Congressional) establishment, something I felt was absolutely essential if we were to see positive change come to our nation.

My feelings about Sen. Cruz remain the same to this day.

At the same time, I am not here to be his defender or apologist and there are other candidates I respect and would vote for if they were nominated.

I do have grave concerns about a Trump presidency and I have real concerns about evangelical Christians backing him, unless they said: “We know he’s not a believer or a God-fearing man, but we believe that God is raising him up, as unlikely as it seems, for His own purposes, and that’s why I support him.”

I still would not agree with that personally (but let God be God!), but I would not have a problem with that perspective.

My problem is when believers either overlook his massive character flaws or claim that he’s actually a Christian or a God-fearing man. That’s what concerns me.

Having said all that, my mission is to please the Lord, not to campaign for one candidate or bring down another, so my posts and comments and articles and radio shows and videos will reflect that.

So, let’s pray for our nation and let’s pray for the candidates, and let’s pray for one another.

Awakening must start with us, and if we view one another as enemies rather than co-workers, we’ll have an even bigger problem to face.

May God cause us to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world like never before!

As much as many Americans reject the church, America desperately needs the church to be the church.

The fate of the nation will be determined by what happens in God’s house even more than what happens in the White House, as massively important as the presidency is.

Yes Christian, You Are Supposed to Judge Donald Trump

By Erick Erickson | January 25, 2016, 10:40pm
usa-election_trump3-1144x762

One of the most ignorant responses to my piece about pastors and Trump is from those saying that the Bible says we are not to judge. Donald Trump says he is a Christian, therefore we should not judge him.

Statements like that reveal a shallow theology. In fact, because Donald Trump proclaims himself a Christian, we absolutely are to judge him. The Bible makes that explicit in 1 Corinthians 5.

“I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”

Donald Trump claims to be a Christian. He also claims the thing he has in common with his daughter is that they both have sex. He cheated on his first wife with his second and is now on his third wife. He, on several occasions, has said he has no need to repent and has never asked God for forgiveness. Contrary to Cain, who murdered his brother, we in the church are our brothers’ keepers. We are to hold each other to account.

When we are confronted by a man who calls himself a Christian and does not admit he is a sinner, says he has never needed to repent, has tried to take a widow’s home against her consent, has been divorced multiple times and committed adultery, you absolutely are called to judge. The Bible is explicit in this.

If you call yourself a Christian and support Donald Trump, feel free to. But don’t hide behind your faith as an excuse for supporting him as some are. And don’t get in high dudgeons when the rest of us point out Christians are supposed to repent. And do not dare say we should not judge. Not only do you flat out misunderstand Matthew 7, you ignore 1 Corinthians 5.

Ted Cruz: An Ezra for This Hour in America

                                          Ted Cruz is a modern-day Ezra. (Reuters)

As I was preparing to head out to Texas to interview Senator Ted Cruz for an upcoming magazine article, I did more than study his voting record and where he stands on hot-button issues. I prayed about God’s will in what many are calling the most important presidential election in the nation’s history.

As I prayed over Cruz, I heard the Lord say “Ezra.” I studied Ezra’s mission, reading the book of the Bible he wrote by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. I also studied his actions in book Nehemiah, also penned by the Spirit.

After much prayer, reflection and study, I believe that the Lord wants to raise up Cruz, 45, as an Ezra in this generation. I believe the Lord wills to use this Cuban-immigrant-pastor’s kid-turned-United-States-senator to call the nation to repentance and lead America to re-covenant with God.

Who Was Ezra?

In case you don’t read much from this prophet, scribe and priest, he was one of the key leaders to leave Babylon to rebuild Jerusalem, which was sitting in ruins during his ministry. Although America is not in visible ruins and most of our churches are still standing, the discerning eye can see spiritual ruin from sea to shining sea as many predict a financial Armageddon is inevitable.

It’s important to note that God did not work through one man alone to bring an awakening to Israel. God raised up restorers of the walls and repairers of the breach. He raised up interceding prophets. He raised up builders—those willing to do hard work day and night. And he raised up governmental leaders who were touched by the Spirit of God to cooperate with His plans and purposes at a specific hour in history.

King Artaxerxes offered permission and provision to Nehemiah, who led the restoration of Jerusalem’s walls (see Neh. 2). King Cyrus issued a decree to rebuild the temple Zerubbabel and Joshua led work to restore the temple as Haggai and Zechariah prophesied to the builders (see Ezra 5: 1-2). Ezra’s portion was to ultimately bring a spiritual revival to God’s people by restoring a reverential fear of Jehovah’s law and a heartfelt worship for one one true and living God who had so many times before delivered them from bondage.

What Ezra Really Did

Essentially, Ezra taught the people of God the Word of God. He set out to teach the Israelites, who had been carried away into Babylonian captivity, the law of God. Ezra did not set out to do this by his own smarts, strengths or timing.

Like Nehemiah, Ezra also rose up in the reign of Artaxerxes. The Bible describes him as “a scribe skilled in the Law of Moses, given by the Lord God of Israel” and says “the hand of the Lord his God was upon him” and later reiterates that “the good hand of his God was upon him” (see Ezra 7).

When Ezra arrived in Jerusalem, he wasted no time on his assignment: “Because Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, he was doing so and teaching the statutes and judgments in Israel” (Ezra 7:10). With the walls and temple rebuilt, the family leaders and temple servants started returning to Jerusalem and sacrifices were made unto Jehovah (Ezra 8).

Then comes a turning point. Ezra learned that God’s people, “practice the abominations of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites” (Ezra 9:1).

“When I heard this, I tore my clothes and my robe, plucked out the hair of my head and from my beard, and sat down astonished. Because of the vile behavior of those who had been in exile, every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel gathered to me, but I sat astonished until the evening sacrifice” (Ezra 9:3-4).

A Call to Repentance

At the evening sacrifice Ezra rose up from his heaviness and, despite having his clothes and robe torn, he knelt on his knees and stretched out his hands in prayer to God and started leading the nation in repentance:

“O my God, I am ashamed and embarrassed to lift up my face to You, my God, because our iniquities have expanded over our heads and our wrongdoing has grown up to the heavens. Since the days of our fathers until this day, we have been in a great guilt. It is because of our iniquities that we, our kings, and our priests have been delivered—by the sword, by captivity, by spoil, and by being shamed—into the hand of the kings of the lands. This day is like that, too” (Ezra 9:6-7).

This repentance goes on through verse 15. Then something happened. 2 Chronicles 7:14 happened.

“Now while Ezra prayed and confessed, weeping and prostrating himself before the house of God, a very large congregation of men, women, and children gathered around him from Israel, for the people too wept bitterly. Shekaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said to Ezra, ‘We have acted with vile unfaithfulness against our God and have wedded foreign women from the people of the land, yet there is now hope in Israel concerning this. Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to sever relations with all the women and their children according to the counsel of my lord and those who tremble at the commandment of our God. May this be done in accordance with the law. Arise, for this matter is your responsibility. But we are standing with you. Be courageous and act!'” (Ezra 10:1-4).

Cruz is Believing for a Great Awakening

The Israelites confessed their sins, repented, and immediately started making the wrong things right. We get more of the story in Nehemiah 8. Ezra reads the book of the Law of Moses before all the people.

“When Ezra blessed the Lord as the great God, all the people responded ‘Amen, Amen!’ By lifting up their hands as they bowed their heads, they worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground” (Neh. 8:6). “They read from the book, from the Law of God, with interpretation, and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading” (Neh. 8:8).

And the people wept but joy followed as true spiritual revival hit Israel.

“Then he said to them, ‘Go your way. Eat the fat, drink the sweet drink, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.’ So the Levites quieted all the people, saying, ‘Hush! Because today is holy you should stop being so sorrowful.’ Then all the people went to eat, to drink, to send portions, and to enjoy a great celebration because they had understood the words declared to them” (Neh. 8:10-12).

Jerusalem, the Holy City, was restored. America can be restored. We may be on the brink of utter disaster, but it’s not too late—and Cruz is proclaiming that reality. When I sat down with him in Texas, I specifically asked him if he was believing for another Great Awakening.

“To turn America around today, I believe we need another great awakening, and I believe it’s happening,” Cruz told me. “It’s one of the reasons I’m so optimistic and so encouraged as I travel the country. People are waking up. They’re realizing that what we’re doing doesn’t make any sense. They’re realizing that we’re losing who we are, forgetting who we are.”

Put Deliberation Back in the World’s Most Deliberative Body

By REP. TRENT FRANKS 1/12/16 12:01 AM

The objective of Democrats leading up to the next election is to deliberately engineer an extended government shutdown Rep. Trent Franks argues (AP file photo/Ross D. Franklin)

The objective of Democrats leading up to the next election is to deliberately engineer an extended government shutdown Rep. Trent Franks argues (AP file photo/Ross D. Franklin)

When noble American champions like Franklin Graham leave the Republican Party and a potential split in the Republican Party is pondered by Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal, we should ask ourselves why.

Here’s why.

Republicans currently hold a 54 — 46 majority in the Senate (which conservatives understandably thought would give Republicans the power to resist Barack Obama). However, even if all 54 Republicans vote “yes” on the “motion to proceed” (one of the Senate’s most insidious and hidden-in-plain sight secrets), at least 6 Democrats must also come to the Senate floor and vote “yes” or the motion is defeated.

This rule denies the majority in the United States Senate the essential capability to vote on, or even debate, critical, life and death legislation that may be supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans (like stopping the Iranian nuclear deal).

More from the Washington Examiner

How could we ever come up with a more perfect recipe for gridlock in this polarized, truth-be-damned political era in which we live?

Democrats know that the American people (even the esoteric Republican base) are largely oblivious to this secret, subterranean leverage they so routinely abuse, since the media never seem to report on this elephant (or donkey) in the room.

This has allowed Democrats to repeatedly force the House of Representatives, and especially its leadership, into an impossible conundrum: Either pass legislation that Democrats completely agree with, which enrages the principled, but misinformed Republican base, or allow Democrats to shut down the government, for which Republicans will be unjustly, but entirely, blamed.

In fact, the primary objective of Democrats leading up to the next election is to deliberately engineer an extended government shutdown. This is because both Democrats and Republicans have done extensive polling, and both know a government shutdown gives Democrats decisive leverage to retain the presidency and gain control of the U.S. Senate in next year’s election. This would mean that Democrats will control presidential appointments, gain complete control of the U.S. Supreme Court and turn what’s left of the U.S. Constitution into vapor.

 

Hillary’s and the Democrats’ ‘War on Children’

Posted on December 31, 2015 by Wayne Allyn Root

Hello and goodbye. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty®. And this is my final column for Personal Liberty®. I greatly appreciate all of my friends and fans from my four wonderful years here. It’s ironic and telling that my final column comes on the eve of New Year’s 2016 because 2016 is our last stand. It’s the most important year in our country’s history.

After what Barack Obama has done to damage America, I fear the window is closing fast. I don’t believe America can be saved if a Democrat like Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders follows Obama in the White House. Either we take back the White House; repeal and replace Obamacare; stop the madness of climate change/green energy; stop the EPA dead in its tracks; undo all the onerous regulations put into place by Obama; build a wall and secure the border; stop the madness of importing Syrian refugees to America; and dramatically lower taxes, spending and debt, or America is lost forever.

If the GOP doesn’t win the White House on Nov. 8, the very next day we need to all be thinking of where to go and what to do to protect our families, our incomes, our assets, our children’s future. It’s time for “Escape From America.”

It sounds like the title of a fictional horror film, except this time it’s real. Every friend I have with substantial assets to protect is already making plans either to leave or to obtain dual citizenship. The preparations have begun for smart people with the resources.

Today’s column is about the campaign theme that the GOP presidential candidate must use to win the 2016 election. This is the theme that can save our country and our children’s future. If Republicans don’t use it 24/7 from now until the election in November, they should be prosecuted for gross negligence. Their only defense would be insanity. I call this theme the Democrats’ “war on children.”

Democrats understand marketing and branding so much better than Republicans. Obama, Hillary and Bernie always take a page right out of their favorite playbook, Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals,” by declaring a “Republican war on women.” It’s all Hillary talks about. It will most certainly be the theme her 2016 campaign is built around.

Sadly, Republicans are cowards afraid of their own shadows. Democrats trot out “the race card” and the “you hate women card” again and again. The GOP responds by playing defense and running scared.

It’s the reason I’m a big fan of Donald Trump. He doesn’t play that game. He isn’t afraid of anyone. He doesn’t apologize or play on defense. He plays on offense. He’s in your face. He tells the truth and lets the chips fall where they may — no matter how offensive or politically incorrect. He plays to win. 

Donald understands that we need to be relentless to make America great again and to make America safe again.

It’s time for all Republicans to learn from Trump. It’s time to fight fire with fire. It’s time to throw out all the gentlemen’s rules because we’re not fighting gentlemen. We’re fighting liars and frauds out to destroy America and steal our children’s future. We can’t afford to “play nice.” It’s time to put Democrats on the defensive.

Democrats understand the marketing and branding power of using emotional hooks like “the war on women.” Well, two can play at that game. It’s time to use an emotional hook of our own. The difference is this one isn’t made up. It’s time to point out that the real war is the Democrats’ “war on children.”

The war on children starts in the womb. Hillary and her ilk don’t hesitate to kill children in the womb. No point in a woman’s pregnancy is too extreme. No limit to abortion is acceptable. Not even ripping a child to pieces with partial birth abortion is too extreme for Hillary and the Democrats. Not even the harvesting and sale of organs from innocent fetuses by Planned Parenthood is too extreme.

And anyone who tries to point out these extreme examples of murder or torture upon children, anyone who champions or defends children who cannot speak for themselves, is immediately slandered and labeled as “extreme” or “an enemy of women.”

Well-meaning people can have legitimate disagreements about whether or not life begins at the moment of conception. But surely only radical extremists would argue that after five months or more, a fully formed fetus with a beating heart is not a child. Surely only radical extremists would defend the harvesting of organs from dead babies.

But this is only the start of Hillary’s and the Democrats’ war on children. The children who survive are then consigned to government schools where they are kept marginally ignorant, taught to always obey authority and show loyalty to government, and taught it’s OK to be dependent upon government. The brainwashing begins young, starting with free breakfasts and lunch provided by government. Parents no longer take care of the most basic of responsibilities: feeding their children. Can you imagine? Moms and dads are no longer capable of making breakfast for their children. Government schools teach kids to expect breakfast, lunch and now even a backpack filled with food to take home for the weekend. Big Brother now provides your meals, not mom or dad.

These same government schools have outlawed being a boy, labeling the actual signs of masculinity as “Attention Deficit Disorder” and drugging boys because they act like boys. Not to mention the more boys they count as “disabled” the more money the school gets from the federal government.

These same government schools teach our children to be sheep. They are discouraged from thinking for themselves, taught that competition in all forms (but especially in business and the workplace) is bad, and rewarded with a trophy if they simply show up.

What does this lead to? A future taking orders from a manager at a fast food restaurant, or a future sitting home watching cartoons and Jerry Springer while waiting for a welfare check in the mail. But of course, this is how you create future loyal Democratic voters.

Perhaps worst of all is that for many years now our schools have been keeping America’s schoolchildren ignorant about basic economics. Our children are never taught in school (and the mainstream media keeps it well hidden, too) the numbers $164,000 and $8,200: $164,000 is the current federal debt each American family of four owes; and $8,200 is the amount, at 5 percent interest, you are paying on that debt each and every year.

No one teach our children that this debt will destroy their future and rip their hopes and dreams to shreds. No one teaches our children why the debt keeps growing: to keep progressive politicians in office for life and line the pockets of the political class.

This government spending and debt machine is at the heart of the Democrats’ war on children, and the day of reckoning is fast approaching.

If you have any doubt about a day of reckoning and what it might look like, all you need do is look at Greece. That bankrupt, broken country proves that debt is a poison, a dream killer, the death of a nation.

But we can look closer to home to see even more proof. Just study Detroit, a city under 100 percent Democratic control for well over 50 years. The last Republican mayor of Detroit left office in 1962. Ruled for half a century by the same policies and leftist agenda of Obama, Hillary and Bernie, Detroit is a bankrupt broken cesspool of murder, violence, crushing poverty, broken street lights, abandoned buildings and taxes so high everyone with any assets has left. Both Greece and Detroit are places that prove the Democrats’ war on children is brutal and real.

So setting aside abortion, you mean a place where children can’t walk the streets without risking shootings, rape or murder is not a war on children?

You man a place where children are almost guaranteed to never get a solid education, never find a good job, and rely on food stamps and welfare for life isn’t a war on children?

You mean a place where almost no child has a father in the home isn’t a war on children?

You mean a place where your environment is abandoned buildings, broken street lamps and drug dealers’ owning the streets isn’t a war on children?

You mean a place where a child is more likely to wind up in prison than college isn’t a war on children?

Again, let me stress, only Democrats and their policies and progressive agenda have created this brutal environment. Only Democrats like Obama, Hillary and Bernie have been in power and control of Detroit since 1962. And don’t forget the party that ran Greece into the ground was called the “Socialist Party.”

It’s always liberals, leftists, progressives and socialists who lead a war on children.

So let’s stop talking about a made-up war on women. It is only meant to distract. The GOP must start talking about the real war: Hillary Clinton’s and the Democrats’ war on children.

John Bolton – 2017 Foreign Policy and the 2016 Campaign

John Bolton, our former Ambassador to the United Nations and the non presidential candidate that never had the opportunity to run. He is one political American asset that sadly we will not have the benefit to profit from. In his address below he demonstrates a grasp of the political scene America is presently facing and articulates the political minefield left by our current administration for the one taking office in 2017.

2017 foreign policy & the 2016 campaign –
Idealized strategies founded on hypothetical scenarios no longer useful

Islamist terrorists have again shed American blood on American soil. The San Bernardino killers’ ideology is clear, as it was with the 9/11 hijackers. The continuing global threat from their terrorist comrades is not a criminal-law problem but a barbaric war against our country’s deepest principles.

It is, therefore, increasingly critical that national security take center stage in 2016’s political debate. With just over a year until Barack Obama’s term ends, presidential candidates must begin articulating foreign and defense policies based on the international reality they will inherit on Inauguration Day 2017.

The strategic environment Obama actually bequeaths to the incoming president will be the point of departure, not what exists today. Candidates must now be both more comprehensive in their strategic thinking and more directly address the world they will face after they finish the oath of office.

Idealized strategies founded on hypothetical scenarios are no longer useful.

Critiquing Obama’s daily failures also is no longer enough. Neither can we return to Jan. 20, 2009, and start over again. ISIS, collapsing national governments (indeed, chaos) in Iraq and Bashar Assad’s Syria, and Iran’s continuing nuclear-weapons program together constitute a critical focus for the new realism and specificity candidates must now demonstrate. Consider these key facts a new president will face:

• First, Obama has done precious little to reach his self-professed goal to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS. For Obama, “ultimately” is very far off. Even after the Paris and San Bernardino savagery, Obama shows no hint of moving beyond his current flaccid efforts. Thus, by January 2017, the ISIS global threat likely will have become materially more serious.

• Second, despite repeatedly asserting that Syria’s Assad must be removed from power, the president has done almost nothing to make it happen. For years, Obama was paralyzed by fear that taking effective action against Assad would endanger his chances for a nuclear deal with Iran, Assad’s chief regional supporter.

Moreover, Obama and secretaries of State Clinton and Kerry consistently misread Russia’s position on Syria’s Ba’ath Party regime, claiming that Putin shared their goal of replacing Assad with some alternative regime. That never was true. Now, Russia has doubled down, building a substantial air base at Latakia, using air power to bolster Assad against the Syrian opposition.

So blind is Obama that he continues hoping Putin will change his mind. No way. If anything, 2016 will see Russia more entrenched militarily in Syria — and more adamantly behind the Ba’athist government. Moreover, because of the deeply flawed Vienna nuclear deal, Tehran, in just months, will gain access to more than $100 billion of previously frozen assets, thus providing resources to finance increased Iranian and Hezbollah military activity supporting Assad.

Obama’s unwillingness to act will therefore leave us, by Jan. 20, 2017, with Assad far more difficult to remove and the Moscow-Tehran-Damascus axis greatly strengthened.

• Third, Tehran by then also will have made another year’s worth of progress toward its long-sought objective of deliverable nuclear weapons. The International Atomic Energy Agency’s recent report made clear that Iran continued military work on its nuclear program until at least 2009, well after the 2003 cut-off date asserted in the highly politicized (and now thoroughly discredited) 2007 National Intelligence Estimate. The IAEA also stressed Tehran’s continued stonewalling on key questions it never had answered fully or satisfactorily on military issues. These findings alone show how duplicitous and untrustworthy the ayatollahs remain.

Given this prognosis, it is unrealistic for candidates to talk about removing Assad from power, however desirable such an objective might be in the abstract. This does not mean we should accept Assad or work with his regime; it means that Obama’s mistakes have stuck us with Assad for the foreseeable future.

By January 2017, Russia will be even more entrenched in Syria, meaning either direct confrontation with a new president or accepting a trade Putin would delight in making: reduced Russian involvement in Syria in exchange for lifting the West’s Ukraine-related sanctions against Russia.

Sadly, given the chance, Obama and Europe would both likely make that trade. A new Republican president should not.

As has been true since 2011, Syria and Assad are a strategic side show. The real issue is the regime in Tehran. It is Tehran that is speeding toward nuclear weapons and provoking a regional nuclear arms race. It is Tehran that most threatens Israel. It is Tehran that keeps Assad in power. And it is Tehran that remains the central banker for international terrorism.

Accordingly, the new president must simultaneously pursue the elimination of Iran’s nuclear threat and a robust policy based on U.S. leadership and full participation, including ground forces, to destroy ISIS, not ultimately, but now. Assad simply is secondary to these larger objectives. A realistic 2017 American foreign policy should focus more on eliminating the actual threats we face, not merely on their symptoms.

There Simply Must Be Time for a Little Humor

A Message from your Queen

Once again, humor is a great platform for truth.

Queen Hillary the First

                                                      Queen Hillary the First

As you know, my dear people, the last year for me has been an annus horribilus. The Royal House of Clinton has been tormented by questions about our handling of finances and subjected to tiresome questions about the tragic events in Benghazi – in the furthest regions of our empire. And, sadly, also questions about my Royal e-mails.

Nevertheless, I will not be daunted in my desire and commitment to serve you the people. For the next seventeen months I will be traveling among you as one of you, to listen to your deepest longings and needs. I will be with you in your Wal-Mart and beside you in your Burger Kings. I will drive with you down the busy interstate highways of our land sharing your poverty and needs with you.

How well I remember the days when the Duke of Arkansas and I were impoverished. After we were expelled from our Washington Palace we hardly had two mansions to rub together. We were so poor we had to remove thousands of dollars of china, flatware, carpets and gifts from the Washington Palace just to survive, only to be forced to return much of the treasures by Washington. Now, happily, benefactors from around our empire have given just enough for us to scrape by.

During those difficult times we had to cut back when our daughter was married. We only had three million dollars to spend on her wedding, and I remember our hopes as she moved into her $10 million Manhattan apartment that one day she would be able to move on from that humble abode to something more fitting. After working for MSNBC for a starting salary of a mere $600,000.00, what could she do.

So as I travel across our kingdom to meet you all, I will be listening and sharing with you. Then when the time for the royal election comes, I know I can count on you to crown me as your rightful monarch so that I can continue King Obama’s policies, and we can all live happily ever after.

Queen Hilarity Rodham Clinton
