The Reasons Used to Support Trump are the Same Reasons Not To


Make America Great Again

Make America Great Again?

Some of the reasons people use for voting for Trump are the same reasons not to.


It is argued that since Trump is from a very liberal New York that he has had some democratic leanings. …understatement of the year right there!

One poster writes that “I’m from Philadelphia and used to be a moderate”..

I too used to be from Philadelphia, attended city schools, and have never been a moderate nor a democrat. I had parents who were not political nor religious, but by the time I reached high school I knew then that Social Security was a con game. So location does not determine ones political leanings, nor policy positions, ideology does. Trumps ideology lines up nicely with the progressive democrats and republicans whom he has supported liberally in the past. He has stated on a number of occasions that he gets along well with Pelosi and Reid and Schumer. These are not the words of a Constitutional Conservative nor someone who values limited government. While Conservatives and TEA Party members were fighting Pelosi and Reid Trump was contributing to their campaigns. When we were attempting to remove Mitch McConnell for his feckless leadership Trump was supporting his renomination.

He’s a business man, and as such has had to get along with both sides to do business….

America Needs A Vote for God This Election


While making his 50 state Decision America Tour Franklin Graham spoke about the need for God back in the American political process. He found fault with both political parties and called upon Christians to pray for their nation and to repent of their and the nation’s sins.

I agree with Mr. Graham that America has tossed God out with their progressive humanist secularism, but I can not lay the fault at the feet of the politicians the voting public chose. The focus of my concern is with the dereliction of duty of the Christian church, and the Christian home.

Persecuted Christians left their homelands and traveled across a dangerous sea to find a place where they could worship God freely and without government persecution. The pilgrims set up a colony in Massachusetts that had a lasting effect on the new nation being born. In fact, the Mayflower Compact was instrumental in the Constitution.

These brave men and women were not bashful about their devotion and service to God. They made sure that honor was given to God in their community. Parents taught their children the scriptures and made sure that they understood the importance of worshipping God in their lives and in their community.

Should Evangelical Christians Vote for Trump?


A study guide for those who are heading to the polls this election cycle. The bible really does have a lot to say about exercising your faith in all areas of life, that includes your civic duties to society. Not voting or voting contrary to biblical principles has ripple effects throughout the entirety of society, and therefore your exercising your civic duty should be taken very seriously and approached prayerfully.

 

Evangelical Christians come in a variety of categories on the subject of politics. These different categories will help explain why some Christians who love Jesus and believe the Bible can vote for a man like Donald Trump who is opposed to what the Bible says on so many biblical issues.

Who is Ultimately Supreme? It Really is a Matter of Black and White


Supreme_Court_with_names_0I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”a He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

King of kings and Lord of lords.

Today five men and women in black robes passed judgement on the rest of society by insisting that gay marriage is a protected right under the constitution. Although there is absolutely no language in the constitution addressing marriage at all, somehow these five justices found it hidden away within the 14th amendment. Just like the justices who found the woman’s right to abortion hidden among the dusty lines of the constitution this decision, although taunted as the healing remedy for inequity in American society, is only going to further exasperate the animus around this issue. To this day the fight over abortion continues. The fight over gay marriage is going to continue as well.

Why because the will of the people has been trampled on by the will of the black robed mob. Five unelected men and women (or perhaps transitioning or self-identified members of the opposite sex who really knows) have made it their business to decide for the entire civil society what values it should espouse. Although the democratic process was working fine to sort out the problem state by state allowing input from the citizens enabling them to express themselves on this issue, it wasn’t going fast enough for the justices so they put a end to it and decided for us.

Many are celebrating this ‘landmark’ ruling, but just as many, or perhaps even more, are mourning this decision. There are members of our civil society who view this whole concept as ill advised. Their opinions however do not matter because the five judges have spoken, and it is only their opinion matters today.

Christians today are having mixed emotions on how to handle this whole situation. Well I say rejoice and be exceedingly glad because in the end it is the Christian who actually gets the last word on the issue. By that I mean men and women arrayed in black robes are not the ones sitting in judgement at the end of all things but those who are arrayed in white robes will be the ones judging the world as witnesses with Christ.

This issue has been addressed and Paul gave the remedy in his letter to the Corinthian church.

1If any of you has a dispute with another, do you dare to take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the Lord’s people? 2Or do you not know that the Lord’s people will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? 3Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! 4Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, do you ask for a ruling from those whose way of life is scorned in the church? 5I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers? 6But instead, one brother takes another to court—and this in front of unbelievers!

7The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. 9Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with mena 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And that is what some of you were. 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 Corinthians 6: 1-10

You see my friends, although man thinks he is the master of his own destiny, those who know Christ know who really runs the show.

Iran to get $50 billion signing bonus for bogus agreement

The Iran nuclear deal simply gets worse by the day. Iran gets $50 billion for signing bogus agreement Via the Wall Street Journal “Our main concern here is making sure that if Iran doesn’t abide by its agreement that we don’t have to jump through a whole bunch of hoops in order to reinstate sanctions,” the president said at a news conference.

In addition to a rather sizable signing bonus, Iran gives up nothing in return. In fact they get to keep their secret bomb building facilities under wraps since all military installations are off limits to IAEA inspectors according to a top Iranian Official.

We know of at least two facilities that in the past were found to be making weapons hidden on military bases, but I am sure that Iran will not seek to do the same thing at other military installations once they receive the signing bonus.Right? Wrong!


Immigration expert: ISIS setting up terror camps 8 miles south of US border in area controlled by Mexican drug cartel.

A pro-immigration enforcement advocate says he can’t understand why the Left seems untroubled by reports of an ISIS terrorist cell on the U.S. border. Judicial Watch broke the news April 17 about the ISIS cell, which is allegedly located eight miles south of the U.S.-Mexico border in an area controlled by a Mexican drug cartel.

No problem though since Obama assures us that the BORDER is more secure now then ever. There is absolutely no way that Mexican drug cartel members can get across our borders so we need not worry about ISIS getting in. YEAH RIGHT!

Free Range Children

Agenda 21 A recent story in the media about 2 children aged 10 and 6 being taken into protective custody by over-zealous officials has introduced a phrase I expect we’ll be hearing a lot more of in coming years – Free Range Children.

When I was a child before the age of bike helmets and knee pads, I and my two siblings would ride our bikes through our neighborhood and play at the neighbors house for hours on end. We would even at times walk to the near-by elementary school (about 1/2 mile from home) after hours to play a pick-up game of tackle football. We would play until almost dark and then head back home. This was NORMAL growing up in America. What has happened to this once great nation? Where neighborhoods where kid friendly.

We have become a nation dead set against teaching respect and ethics along with morality; instead we lock-up our children and let the criminals run society. We are abusing our children in the name of protecting them. We are stealing their freedom to learn and explore in the name of security.

What we are creating is a hostile environment our children are going to have to navigate without having the tools at their disposal to deal with the thugs and bullies they are sure to encounter.

Let us get back to a more civil society where we are taught to respect and look out for one another. A society that once held biblical values up as the gold standard. Now anything goes except morality and the golden rule.

More fallout in Boston from the slow-motion collapse of Big Wind.

Put not your faith in politically-subsidized energy projects: The [Deval] Patrick [D, MA] administration’s $113 million New Bedford marine terminal, built as a Cape Wind construction staging area, has become a taxpayer-funded boondoggle now that the controversial offshore wind farm project is virtually dead in the water.

You got to love the loons who live on the left, they keep coming up with new ideas that never seem to pan out while they pooh pooh any of the tried and true programs that actually work. You see liberals see themselves as being smarter than everyone else so therefore all their ideas are good ones and worth pouring billions of dollars into. Although it does not take long to see that these ideas are not what they are QUACKED up to be.

Wind, solar, electric cars, ethanol, bio-diesel, and other alternative methods of producing cheap, reliable, sustainable energy are not feasible, if they were viable options the private sector would have been developing them for a profit, instead liberal politicians have to subsidize them for billions of dollars of wasted taxpayer funds.

What we need to remember about all this GREEN ENERGY talk is the only ENERGY the politicians are really interested in creating is ENERGY to fund their campaigns for re-election. And the GREEN part of the equation is all the taxpayer money that is being funneled back into democrat coffers after rewarding their crony pals who start fake businesses to rake in taxpayer money.


Earth Day’s Coming, Which Means Climate Rhetoric’s Heating Up

ISIL, ISIS, Nuclear Iran, failed governments in Yemen and Sudan, Chinese war machine building up, Russian aggression and military vessels in the arctic, are not a huge threat to our planet. Climate change however is top of the list for Obama.
