      They’re giving their countries and cultures away; allowing and even encouraging them to pass away.

      It’s not a state of war, it’s a state of surrender.

        But all these great volunteers, translating choice material? Others doing subtitles. A great deal of time involved.

    This may have been posted earlier,but…We’ve all had question about the pope, and the new tract of the catholic church…This came out today, and I think has merit…We all knew something went sideways with the Church…This may be the root cause.


    WikiLeaks: Conservative Pope Benedict Was Forced To Resign By ‘Deep State’

    FTA….’….Soros, Obama and Clinton used the United States’ diplomatic machinery, political muscle, and financial power to coerce, bribe and blackmail “regime change” in the Roman Catholic Church in order to replace the conservative Benedict with the current Pope Francis – who has since become an unlikely mouthpiece for the international left, stunning Catholics around the world…..’

      That site is dodgy, so be careful when reading their. Lots of clickbait and really fake news.

      This is fake news.

      There are enough political intrigues and shady coup plots inside the Vatican. The Deep State doesn’t need to be involved.

        Deb, you use the pronoun “this” without first establishing an antecedent so no one knows what you believe is “fake news.” Further, you give ZERO support for your opinion. In contrast, the article you cavalierly dismiss references an actual primary source. BTW informed researchers are already well aware that Pope Benedict was ousted in a coordinated coup. This is OLD news to us.

    Our great POTUS Trump is, according to J. B. White, an “apex predator.” The article White wrote was published on American Greatness and it is a really good article.
    Here is the link: https://amgreatness.com/2018/02/08/ooda-loop-president/

    FTA: “A businessman with the social skillset of an apex predator occupying the most powerful position on Earth, suddenly turned loose on a political world that still can’t comprehend what the heck has hit them? That, my friends, is a Chief Executive of the United State like none before him.

    Because of their slavish predictability, on glaring display during the State of the Union, just think what the Trump Administration will be able to do to Democrats with a robust infrastructure plan that leverages federal funding with creative incentives for partnership with state and local governments along with private enterprise. There will be serious grumbling about the infrastructure plan for sure (toll roads and other pay as you utilize them components will be featured prominently) but this is likely the kill shot for the historic Democrat Party and the political act that cements a governing Republican majority for decades. This sort of political genius has been lost on the clean toga crowd of establishment Grand Old Party thinkers and is, regrettably, on full display this week via David Harsanyi over at The Federalist.

    The observe, orient, decide, then act strategic cycle arises from the quintessentially American spirit of playing to win that Donald Trump embodies and for which he has endured pathetic mockery from the so-called “conservative” NeverTrump crowd (winning, it seems, terrifies them).””

    It’s a great piece!

    Just got this from NumbersUSA
    URGENT UPDATE: Our Capital Hill team is hearing that the proposal offered by Senators John McCain and Chris Coons may have enough votes to pass. Their proposal would grant amnesty to 3.2 million illegal aliens and require a government study on the effectiveness of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Calling Good, Evil and Evil, Good: How ‘Christian Liberals’ Twist the Words of Jesus to Wage War Against President Trump – Part I

    This spring, a group of Christian liberals (yes, apparently “Christian liberal” is a “thing,” not an oxymoron) plans to visit Lynchburg, Virginia, the home of conservative Liberty University, and protest what they consider the “toxic evangelicalism” coming from leaders like Liberty’s president Jerry Falwell and others like him who happen to support President Trump.

    For a group billed as a Jesus-centered alternative to both the Christian Left AND the Right, the positions taken seem awfully Leftist, and include such gems as “Wherever your power and influence might lie, it is magnified when shared and held by those who are poor, oppressed and looked over by society,” and “Questioning cultural norms is healthy and can lead to wholeness,” among others.

    Yeah, Karl Marx would have been totally down with it, his atheism notwithstanding. (Which is another problem, but I’m getting ahead of myself…)

    Yea, the Red Letter “Marxist” Christians now officially formed.
    They believe that Jesus fully embraced cultural Marxism.

    Isaiah 5:20 reads, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness.”

    Not to be judgmental or anything, but if any one group deserves an extra helping of this “woe” from the Almighty, it’s these modern day Pharisees.

    The subversion of Christianity from within accelerates because Christians are the strongest group supporting Trump and his policies.

      Yeah, I’m sooooooooooo tired of hearing the terms ‘social Gospel’ and ‘social justice’ out of the heirarchy of my church. There’s only one Gospel, there’s not a social version. And justice is justice. The ‘social’ just lets you know the Gramsci critique and shaming of everything traditional and established is coming with every following word. Oh, and the poor, the poor, the poor! How can you compare the poor in today’s welfare state to people who had to grow their own food and make their own clothes back in Christ’s time? When Jesus was helping the poor he was helping crippled people and blind people and deathly sick people and talking about widows and orphans. Not able-bodied moochers. The apostle Paul said in, I believe 2 Thessalonians, “If a man does not work, he shall not eat.” And as long as the Prodigal Son had his dad’s money, he didn’t care. It wasn’t until he was feeding the pigs and wishing he could eat the food that he woke up and got humble. You can’t insulate people from their own bad decisions. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12- that’s one the moochers need to hear.

        Completely agree with all you’ve said, just want to offer my take on “social” justice: Social justice = taking the blindfold off of Lady Liberty and dispensing justice according to personal characteristics. Because that seems to be what they are demanding whenever they discuss this “social justice” crap.

        If we don’t return to “Blind” Justice and soon we won’t have a Republic.

      “Not to be judgmental or anything…”


      Funny how the Left has turned this into a ‘bad thing’.

      First off…the Left itself is being Judgmental, when they judge that being judgmental is a bad thing!

      Secondly…what is wrong with being Judgmental?
      We have to make dozens of little judgments every day, before we even leave the house!
      And then, once outside, we have to make little judgments throughout the course of our day.
      It’s called…survival.

      So I reject this thing about ‘being judgmental is bad’.
      It is a Leftist construct, designed to forbid people from making judgments about how stupid, immoral or depraved, the Left has become.

      Laura Bush’s portrait captures her personality and position, as any good portrait should.

      Hillary’s perfectly captures how dark, dull and lifeless her soul is. It makes for an ugly painting, but it’s a perfect portrait.

    Actually, I’m glad O & Mooch have paintings that are disgusting because it’s a true display of their characters and who they were in the WH. Now they have permanently made themselves a laughing stock for all to see for generations to come. In this case…you really can’t dress them and take them anywhere.

      Reagan, Ford, and Carter portraits look great, Clinton’s is just so perfect for him, just the kind of portrait you would expect of a powerful predator. I’m almost surprised he’s not grabbing his crotch. Kennedy was trying too hard, but not as hard as Obama!

      Obama’s looks like him but also looks like he’s desperately trying to seem important. And then the leaves show just how unimportant he is. The disappearing feet are weird and also makes it look like he’s pointing his toes like when a dog goes to the “toilet”.

      Minnesota Update:

      Republicans won House District 23B with a whopping 60% of the vote!

      We lost the Senate seat, but turned out 46% of the vote in a DEMOCRAT district. This spells great news for Republicans in November.

      A lot of the DACAns are going to appreciate what Trump and the Republicans are doing for them. The Democrats had EIGHT YEARS and all the DACAns got were temporary deporation delays that they had to keep renewing. I don’t know if the renewals were expensive but the initial entry into the program was.

        It’d be great to flip more Dem districts, but many people are not used to voting outside of Presidential elections. Scott’s trying to change that.
