      Under Sharia law, those women showing their skin in public would be severely beaten or put to death.

      And yet they stupidly say “Sure” and give their approval for Sharia law.

      The leftist control over our schools and the media, has created a massive pool of ignorant, easily led fools.

    In addition I am tired of Christians attacking who I believe to be a Christian, President Trump. Paraphrasing, Franklin Graham has made a comment that he has seen POTUS heart in such matters and implied he thought so also (no link, sorry). My response to such Christians criticizing POTUS:. Is salvation for all but POTUS? Read God’s Word. We should pray for our Christian President.

    I really have no time for Christians of different denominations who spend all their time attacking other Christians for having different prayers or traditions. We are in a war against Satan and his demons, not each other. What would Christ want?— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) August 19, 2018

        I watched VSG change as his campaign progressed–and especially as more pastors prayed over him and with him ! All his cabinet meetings begin with prayer, The Nativity scenes were brought back into the WH at Christmas. He seldom gives a speech without mentioning GOD. I would suggest that POTUS is no more of a sinner than any of the rest of us ! (Because ANY sin, un-redeemed, will separate you from God.)

        So I HATE the qualifiers people give him—–“he is an imperfect man but—–“or “he has a checkered history but”———to all those pious people I say “Look in the mirror, my friend !”

      I do not disagree with what you have posted here but want to make a bigger point.

      God has NEVER depended solely on holy people to do His Will or to deliver His people.

      In the Old Testament, we see the pagan WHORE Rahab, that helped the Jewish people and Joshua take the land promised by God to them. It was the ADULTEROUS King David who wrote the psalms and gave the world the dynasty from which Jesus sprung. And in history, it was the pagan foreign king, Cyrus, who conquered the Holy Land, allowed the Jewish people to return home AND gave them the money to rebuild their temple.

      God uses those HE chooses and often picks champions and messengers that nobody would expect for the purpose of confounding the wise and worldly. There is NOT ONE SINGLE AMERICAN living present that had the life, money, AMERICA FIRST VALUES, media experience and business savvy who could have taken on the globalists, deep state, rinos, progressives, and evil forces and WIN. NO one else.

      God bless PDJT and everyone working to MAGA!

Were HE to want only perfect people, the only ONE he could use is JESUS, His Only-Begotten Son, and we killed him, both on the Cross and with our SINS. (and yes, I know it was necessary for OUR salvation, but I hope you get what I mean)…

        As we say in our business, those who ride the edge of the rules make the best auditors. They know where the bodies are buried.

        Was Trump flawed? Yes, multiple divorcee, ruthless real estate developer in the hardest market in the nation, ran in Democrat circles (repeat, flawed). He played the media circus, played politics, was self centered, brash, misogynist.

        Then I think he had his Come to Jesus moment, and realized he could fix it. He didn’t have to live that way.

        It takes a strong personality to run for President, to fight, to lead. I couldn’t do it. So many in DC just go with the flow, represent that interest, get that payout. Sink in the swamp.

        So there is the Trump that Was, and the Trump that Is. And I like this Trump, because he represents a change away from big government, back to individualism. Capitalism, not Cronyism.

        Absolutely! One of my favorite verses, said by Joseph to his brothers, is Genesis 50:20.

        “And as for you, ye meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”

        God can use evil people for His good purpose. He can even use a donkey!

        So God uses His people or non-believers. People for Him or against Him. I also believe POTUS believes in Christ, mostly because well-known pastors were his advisors during the campaign and now also. I watched ever little video, every little comment, indication by ever one of them to glean there thoughts. The Holy Spirit recognizes the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (or lack thereof) in another. It is my belief that many indicated POTUS as a kindred Spirit.

        One can look at the fruit of the spirit and his works to further the Kingdom of God, the greatest of which will be imo the moving of the U.S. Embassey to Jerusalem.

        Last Sunday I caught Pastor John Hagee’s tv sermon entitled: The Fight For Jerusalem from the series: Earth’s Last Empire. Hagee’s Ministry is the largest single financial donor to Israel. Let that sink in. The. Largest — outgiving all Jewish orgs. God purposed Him with unitying the Jews and Christians many decades ago. He (like Trump) followed his calling with many death threats. His Nights For Israel started in the early ’80s.

        Hagee is one of PE/POTUS’ select group of spiritual advisors. In his sermon he explained how the select pastor group was called to the WH in October 2017 to discuss the issue of the J’lem Embassy. Hagee said the WH admin advised against moving the embassy. Hagee strongly and boldly explained to POTUS what it would mean in the eyes of God to move it, giving full testimony of Hebrew Scriptures (Christian O.T.) and thereby recognizing God’s eternal capital of His Holy Land and that POTUS would be recognized by God and humanity similarly to Truman in the true unification and recognition of Israel, the ancient and Biblical capital as Jerusalem, and recognize all Jews accordingly.

        Pastor Hagee gave the Embassy dedication prayer in May. (See YouTube)

        In December 2017 POTUS announced the move of the U.S. Embassey. God is leading POTUS’ heart. God is using His spiritual leaders to spiritually lead POTUS in His Word. Heathens do not heed God’s Word although God uses them in their evil deeds for HIs good purpose. Believers hear God’s Word through the Holy Spirit who leads us into all Truth and believers heed (try) God’s Word.

        Against all political advice, POTUS moved the embassy to J’lem based on God speaking to Him and a spiritual leader’s (Hagee, probably others) spiritual advise given to a man who does have faith, whether other Christians see the fruit of the Spirit or his works of faith or not. I personally think His faith is unwavering at this point in his life and repeatedly seen as he gives glory to God in much of his actions and work, for such a time as this.

        Sadly many black Christians are blinded for many different reasons. I had a conversation with one black Christian friend voting for Zero. She was talking ‘politicians/politics”. Abruptly, I ended it all by saying, “I voting for God’s Word.” It stunned her and she asked me to repeat it. I did. She stared at me and we never spoke of it again.

        Sadly many (black, white, etc) Christians do not vote for the candidate who lines up the most with God’s Word. In ’08/’12 many, many Christians put social justice issues before God’s issues. Imo, such are more secular than lead spiritually by His word. That just how I saw those elections. Granted now I know the Rinos were no better. America got what they deserved.

        In ’16 Christians turned to God, prayed & voted Donald J. Trump into office.

      The polls are only fake if we turn out to vote. Otherwise, they are a self fulfilling prophesy.

      In our small TN town, in which the Dems would seem to not have a prayer of a chance for any race, they are promoting Get Out the Vote in a major way. They realize that each person they get fired up will reach out to others via social media who may live in a swing area and whose votes will count. They have apps, registering new people and making sure family and friends talk about voting to everyone in their circle, whether local or distance, and everyone encourages/takes other to vote. Turning out the vote Does make a difference!

      We must not be cocky, dismissing the polls as fake. We must realize that the faithful Dem voters are determined, angry and eager to vote.

      We beat the polls in ’16, in part, by turning out in overwhelming numbers – enough to overwhelm the usual cheating. We must do it again in ’18!!

        Problem is the good judge does not have all the secrete orders, sealed for “national security reasons”. Everybody keeps forgetting how Judge Ellis exposed the very existence of Mueller Secrete orders (written and verbal) but I doubt the public or the judge has seen or heard them all. Rosenstein needs to be deposed NOW to get all his secrete orders on paper and stopped from issuing more.

    Here’s an essay from that Northeastern Liberal Elite Democrat I keep linking to.
    It isn’t really political, but it offers opinion and insight about what is going on in America with the war on our president, with some background from history thrown in.
    I don’t necessarily agree with all of it.
    Remember, though, this man in many ways is one of them (in italics), so he’s familiar with those he speaks of here:
    “The one thing he [President Trump] has truly accomplished is driving his opponents in the overclass out of their gourds with loathing and resentment.”
    “Meanwhile, the class of former winners-turned-losers — the Silicon Valley executives, the Hollywood movers and shakers, the Brooklyn Hipsters, the Ivy League faculties, the Deep State guideline writers, the K-Street consultants, the yoga ladies of Fairfield County, Connecticut, the acolytes of Oprah Winfrey and Elizabeth Warren — resort to righteous litigation in their crusade to restore the proper order of rule in this land. When they come to power, the shining city will be at hand….”
    The overclass (not his term, he credits someone named Michael Lind with it) does truly believe they are going to bring things back to a wonderful state, or many of them do.
    What the Oprahs don’t see is that under their reign, things deteriorated to the point they are at now, and there comes a point where one has to see that “Republicans” had nothing to do with it.
    I think Oprah does see it. Shame on her for not admitting she was wrong.
    This thing is worth reading if you like highbrow type essays on culture:

        If there is a sting in process and Sessions and PDJT are playing theater, it does not matter if the President tweets twice bashing Sessions…or a thousand times. It is false logic to think the number of tweets changes that.

        Personally, I have no emotional attachment to Sessions. I do not live in Alabama and have never voted for the man. All I know is what I see.

        —Weeks before the election, President Trump made his famous Our Movement speech declaring that we are in a fight for our survival.
        —We are in a war.
        —Fighting a war inherently involves deceiving the enemy and hiding your intentions.
        —The enemy has had decades to build its global network, finances, weaponry, strategy, and assorted defenses.
        —A significant portion of the country has been brainwashed and held in the dark about the truth.
        —To win this war we must counter in a short period of time what our enemy has had decades to build.

        How do you think the strategy and plan would look? Would you simply walk in the front door and start slamming cuffs on people? Where would you prosecute them…with the same institutions that have been deeply corrupted? What do you think the streets would look like?

        It is not 3D chess to understand that in a war…we use wartime rules and strategy.

    Re. the press/media being fake news.

    It is my belief that the media has been the propaganda arm of the left for at least the last 60 yrs or longer. Remember, we had no alternate news sources until the internet and talk radio came along. When we only had the three TV networks, the national nightly news by all three networks were reporting pretty much the same “news” and so were the major newspapers and magazines. They were all left leaning. We did not know that we were being brainwashed at the time because we had no alternative sources to point out how the fake news.

    Now that we have “outed” the MSM as being in bed w/the commies (AKA DIMS) they can no longer hide.

    We have no idea of the number of lies we have been told over the yrs. when we could not access alternative sources. I was friends w/a person who was the subject of a “60 Minutes” segment yrs. ago. The segment was completely biased and full of lies. I quit watching 60 minutes after that because I knew it was fake news. It also made me question everything that was being broadcast as “news” by the three networks (CBS, NBC, ABC.)

      I understand why blacks are reluctant to support President Trump. For most of my lifetime, blacks have been told Democrats like them and Republicans want them back in Jim Crow days. Our education system is such that I’ll bet few if any are taught that Abe Lincoln was a Republican. They revere Lincoln. I often see Abe Lincoln grouped with FDR and JFK. The “journalists” don’t come out and say he was a Democrat, but the implication is clear. Most blacks know that JFK and FDR were Democrats. Further blacks are told we are not welcoming to them; that we are racists. So if they leave the comfort of their group, will they be isolated? They won’t, but until they actually do leave their group and find out they aren’t isolated, it’s a big chance. Not many are willing to take that chance. My guess, however, is that they are beginning to take the first steps. Our job is to let them know that we see them as Americans, not as part of any color, group or religion.

      Where are the synthetic opioids coming from?

      China is where the precursors are coming from, and most of the shipments are either coming in directly from China or through Mexico — after being shipped in from China.

      Fentanyl has limited legitimate medical use. Carfentanyl has almost-zero legitimate medical use; it’s only legitimate use, due to its potency, is in tranquilizing large animals (like elephants.) There is no legitimate human use for that substance; it is effectively, from a human perspective, a poison.

      Yet as we recently saw in Toronto a jackwad managed to get 53 kilos of that crap in one place. That wasn’t amassed for the purpose of getting people stoned because one grain of salt’s worth is enough to kill a human. As such there’s no reasonable argument to be made that he intended to try to peddle narcotics to addicts. The person who had it appears to have scored an “own goal” by handling it; unfortunately they’re a vegetable and we can’t ask them what they were planning on doing but it’s quite clear that the intent wasn’t to sell drugs to addicts but likely was to commit mass-murder, potentially on a city-wide scale, via intentional release.

Once again, the propaganda wing of the D-Rat party is up to it with phony polls, this time directed at the Congressional races. It’s HilLIARy part 2. One can either get upset about these lies or accept that the polls are the fairy tales they are and get out and vote MAGA just like everyone did in 2016. We WON, the polls lost.

He thinks their documentaries are good.
