George Will, Mike Pence, and Why the DC Elite Just Doesn’t Get It

May 13, 2018

Mike Pence

Last Wednesday, triblive.com ran an editorial by Former Republican and self-proclaimed Conservative George Will, in which he attacked Vice-President Mike Pence.

Here is the hit piece…

Donald Trump, with his feral cunning, knew. Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become America’s most repulsive public figure. And Pence, who has reached this pinnacle by dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge.

Because his is the authentic voice of today’s lickspittle Republican party, he clarifies this year’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing.

Last June, a Trump Cabinet meeting featured testimonials offered to Dear Leader by his forelock-tugging colleagues. His chief of staff, Reince Priebus, caught the spirit of the worship service by thanking Trump for the “blessing” of being allowed to serve him. The hosannas poured forth from around the table, unredeemed by even a scintilla of insincerity.

Pence chimed in but saved his best riff for a December Cabinet meeting when, as The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake calculated, Pence praised Trump once every 12 seconds for three minutes: “I’m deeply humbled. …” Judging by the number of times Pence announces himself “humbled,” he might seem proud of his humility, but that is impossible because he is conspicuously devout and pride is a sin.

Between those two Cabinet meetings, Pence and his retinue flew to Indiana for the purpose of walking out of an Indianapolis Colts football game, thereby demonstrating that football players kneeling during the national anthem are intolerable to someone of Pence’s refined sense of right and wrong. Which brings us to his Arizona salute last week to Joe Arpaio, who was sheriff of Maricopa County until in 2016 voters wearied of his act.

Noting that Arpaio was in his Tempe audience, Pence, oozing unctuousness from every pore, called Arpaio “another favorite,” professed himself “honored” by Arpaio’s presence, and praised him as “a tireless champion of … the rule of law.” Arpaio, a grandstanding bully and darling of the thuggish right, is also a criminal, convicted of contempt of court for ignoring a federal judge’s order to desist from certain illegal law enforcement practices. Pence’s performance occurred eight miles from the home of John McCain, who could teach Pence — or perhaps not — something about honor.

Henry Adams said that “practical politics consists in ignoring facts,” but what was the practicality in Pence’s disregard of the facts about Arpaio? His pandering had no purpose beyond serving Pence’s vocation, which is to ingratiate himself with his audience of the moment. The audience for his praise of Arpaio was given to chanting “Build the wall!” and applauded Arpaio.

It is said that one cannot blame people who applaud Arpaio and support his rehabilitators (Trump, Pence, etc.) because, well, globalization or health care costs or something. Actually, one must either blame them or condescend to them as lacking moral agency. Republicans silent about Pence have no such excuse.

There will be negligible legislating by the next Congress, so ballots cast this November will be most important as validations or repudiations of the harmonizing voices of Trump, Pence, Arpaio and the like. Trump is what he is, a floundering, inarticulate jumble of gnawing insecurities and not-at-all compensating vanities, which is pathetic. Pence is what he has chosen to be, which is horrifying.

A Christian American Conservative is horrifying?

I’ve always thought that we were pretty cool.

But, I digress…

Remember, this is the same snob who wrote the following about good old-fashioned American blue jeans on April 16, 2009:

Denim is the carefully calculated costume of people eager to communicate indifference to appearances. But the appearances that people choose to present in public are cues from which we make inferences about their maturity and respect for those to whom they are presenting themselves.

…Today it is silly for Americans whose closest approximation of physical labor consists of loading their bags of clubs into golf carts to go around in public dressed for driving steers up the Chisholm Trail to the railhead in Abilene.

This is not complicated. For men, sartorial good taste can be reduced to one rule: If Fred Astaire would not have worn it, don’t wear it. For women, substitute Grace Kelly.

If it had been up to Beltway Boys like Mr. Will, Conservatives would have behaved like good little sheeple and shut up and voted for Jeb! in the 2016 Republican Presidential Primaries.

Elitist snobs like George Will will never understand the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election.

They thought for sure that Hillary had it won.

Remember the faces of the Talking Heads on MSNBC that fateful night?

As soon as Trump’s victory was announced, I switched from watching Fox News to MSNBC just to have the satisfaction of seeing the looks on their faces of disbelief.

It was great.

Just like the Modern American Liberals in the Democratic Party, the GOP Elite, including, at the time, George Will, believed that there was no way that Trump would become President and resigned themselves to the “fact” that Hillary Clinton would be the 45th President of the United States of America.

To snobs like George Will, the results were “horrifying”.

As you can see by reading his editorial, Will, like the rest of his co-workers at MSNBC have not gotten over the fact that Trump is President and that Mike Pence is his Vice-President.

Just imagine…a President and Vice-President who actually love America and her citizens,

And, who unashamedly reference the God of Abraham in their speeches as being the Author of our FREEDOM.

Why, how “gauche”.

How, “horrifying”.

WHAT A BLESSING.

Enjoy the next seven and one-half years, Mr. Will.

We “horrifying” Christian American Conservatives sure will.

VP Pence Calls for Joy Behar to Publically Apologize – Why She Should

March 13, 2018

28124659_10211815364523212_959131735_o

Last night, Vice-President Mike Pence appeared on Sean Hannity’s Program on The Fox News Channel. While there, he touched on a number of subjects, including the now-notorious incident in which Joy Behar insulted the VP (and all Christians) for having a personal relationship to Jesus Christ in which he talked to Him, saying that it was a “mental illness”.

Behar has since called Pence to apologize, as the following article posted on FoxNews.com reports…

…“I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you’ve been forgiven,” Pence told Hannity.

Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, “I’m not as good at it as you.”

While Pence forgave Behar, he encouraged her to publically apologize.

“I’m still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended,” Pence said.

“You and I know that criticism comes with public life,” Pence added. “But, I felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander.”

Behar’s call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week’s meeting with investors.

“What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?” shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger directly at Thursday’s meeting. “Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?”

Iger responded by saying, “I don’t know where I start. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate.”

Iger told the crowd he was “glad to hear” Behar apologized because he “takes exception” to what she said. ABC insiders said executives initially wanted to keep the call between Behar and Pence, but Iger mentioned it while defending his company.

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar’s private apology was “not nearly enough” and promised to continue his campaign against “anti-Christian bigotry” at the network. Bozell’s watchdog group is presently running a campaign on behalf of aggrieved Christians, urging that viewers contact “View” advertisers about Behar’s “hateful, anti-Christian remarks.”

Despite the calls for a public apology from both Pence and Bozell, ABC insiders have told Fox News that it doesn’t appear that any action has taken place.

“ABC is doing absolutely nothing about this,” an ABC source recently told Fox News.

Why would Joy Behar make such an ignorant comment in the first place?

Well, gentle readers, Modern American Liberals like Behar want you to believe that Christian Americans are a bunch of nut jobs.

They have even rewritten history in their attempt to ignore the truth.

Those weren’t Muslims who came over on the Mayflower.

According to adherents.com

There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. There were 48 signers of the Articles of Confederation. All 55 delegates who participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 are regarded as Founding Fathers, in fact, they are often regarded as the Founding Fathers because it is this group that actually debated, drafted and signed the U.S. Constitution, which is the basis for the country’s political and legal system. Only 39 delegates actually signed the document, however, meaning there were 16 non-signing delegates – individuals who were Constitutional Convention delegates but were not signers of the Constitution.

There were 95 Senators and Representatives in the First Federal Congress. If one combines the total number of signatures on the Declaration, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with the non-signing Constitutional Convention delegates, and then adds to that sum the number of congressmen in the First Federal Congress, one obtains a total of 238 “slots” or “positions” in these groups which one can classify as “Founding Fathers” of the United States. Because 40 individuals had multiple roles (they signed multiple documents and/or also served in the First Federal Congress), there are 204 unique individuals in this group of “Founding Fathers.” These are the people who did one or more of the following:

– signed the Declaration of Independence
– signed the Articles of Confederation
– attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
– signed the Constitution of the United States of America
– served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
– served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress

The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an “American Founding Father.” But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.

Religious Affiliation of U.S. Founding Fathers

# of Founding Fathers/% of Founding Fathers

Episcopalian/Anglican 88 54.7%
Presbyterian 30 18.6%
Congregationalist 27 16.8%
Quaker 7 4.3%
Dutch Reformed/German Reformed 6 3.7%
Lutheran 5 3.1%
Catholic 3 1.9%
Huguenot 3 1.9%
Unitarian 3 1.9%
Methodist 2 1.2%
Calvinist 1 0.6%
TOTAL 204

Christianity, the faith of the overwhelming majority of Americans, has not only played a part in the birth of our nation, but also the shaping of its Domestic and Foreign Policies.

Liberals remain on a quest to separate the “Faith of Our Fathers” from day-to-day American Life and their Far Left Political Philosophy because they live by the mantra of relative morality and situational ethics.

That is why they always say, “All pathways lead to God”.

Just like the Founders fought against King George’s tyranny, Modern Christian Americans are still fighting against tyranny: “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

However, unlike the tyranny in England that our Founding Fathers escaped from, no one in this present free nation has ever been forced to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

And, that fact is extremely evident in some of the comments one sees on Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites.

But, I digress…

In recent times, especially under the Former Democrat President, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), a concerted effort was made to marginalize Christian Americans, putting us in a box if you will. A lot of Liberals and “libertarians” still seem to believe that Christian Americans should only practice our faith on Sunday Mornings from 9 – 12, and be seen and not heard the rest of week.

That is why Joy Behar, ABC, and The Disney Company were so surprised when Christians came to the defense of Vice-President Pence, sending letters and e-mails and making phone calls to the offices of ABC and The Disney Company, resulting in Behar’s private apology.

I agree with the VP. Behar now needs to apologize to the millions of Christian Americans whom she has offended.

However, I do not see that happening anytime soon.

…Unless the backlash continues and hits The Disney Company square in the pocketbook

…again.

“Will and Grace”, Vice-President Pence, and the Continued Attack on Christian Americans – A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection

October 22, 2017

bible-american-flag

The United States cannot and should not discriminate on the basis of religion. The free exercise of religion is at the very heart of our constitutional guarantee for all persons of this country.” – Vice-President Mike Pence

FoxNews.com reports that

NBC’s “Will & Grace” took another shot at conservatives on Thursday night, using exaggerated stereotypes to portray the right as homophobic with not-so-subtle jabs at Vice President Mike Pence.

Sean Hayes’ character, Jack, explained to Eric McCormack’s Will that he lost touch with his son because, “He moved to Texas, married someone super conservative, and he didn’t even invite me to his wedding.”

Upon realizing that he has a grandson in Texas, Will encouraged Jack to bond with him but Sean Hayes’ character didn’t exactly love the idea.

“How am I supposed to connect with a kid from Texas? I can’t fish or hunt or tell a woman what to do with her fetus,” he replied.

However, it turns out that Jack might have something in common with his grandson after all, as he is suspected to be gay. He is sent to a mock gay conversion camp called “Straighten Arrow,” where they plan to “pray away the gay,” complete with a poster of Vice President Pence.

The Media Research Center’s TV reporter Amelia Hamilton wrote that while conversion therapy is often tied to Pence, “the accusations have just never stuck, except in liberals’ minds.”

“Anything to keep pushing an oft-debunked myth, I suppose, right?” Hamilton wrote. “Debunked myths, conservative stereotypes, and overwrought situations? It looks like ‘Will & Grace’ knows they’re not going to win anybody over by being honest.”

Last month, the premiere episode of NBC’s reincarnated “Will & Grace” was essentially a 30-minute anti-Trump infomercial. It referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a “hostage,” portrayed Midwesterners as people who didn’t eat vegetables until Michelle Obama came along and featured Debra Messing’s character, Grace, complaining about the results of last year’s presidential election. People magazine even published a list of all the times the show ripped Trump.

While “Will & Grace” continues to mock conservatives, the creators of the show have actually admitted that they don’t see eye to eye with the man who has turned CNN into a left-leaning network. Creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick told The Hollywood Reporter they only agreed to a reunion because former NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker isn’t involved anymore, as he is now the president of the liberal CNN. 

I wrote last month about the premiere of the “retooled” “Will and Grace”, a sitcom that actually used to be funny.

The writers and producers of the show had seemingly dedicated this reboot to a sustained attack against average folks like myself, who, as described by the “cool” word of the Millennials,  self-identify as Christian Americans.

Or, to describe us in a different light, average Americans living in America’s Heartland between the coasts, whom Hillary Clinton less than lovingly described as “Deplorables”.

The fact of the matter is, no matter how some seek to restrict the Religious Liberty of Christian Americans, the death of Christianity in America has been greatly exaggerated.

“Organized Religion”, a term usually spoken in derision by those seeking to somehow impugn the generations-old practice of Christian Americans to be a member of and attend the weekly worship service of the denomination and church building of their choice, is being attacked constantly by Atheists, Liberals, and Progressives (but, I repeat myself) to further degrade the spiritual backbone of the “Shining City Upon a Hill”, as President Ronald Reagan referred to our country.

For what now seems like an eternity, those on the left side of Political Aisle, have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.

They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”.

Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.

And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman, and standing up for the equality of all faiths, when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

The push to fill their pews and their coffers and to attract new members without offending their popular culture-influenced “sensibilities”, has seemingly the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ in second place behind “Do what you want to do. Would you like to come on in and hang out for a while”?

So, is Christianity in America going to “fade away”?

Not any time soon.

Being filled with human beings, churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the name of the Lord.

For example, the church I attend, houses a Food Pantry, operated in co-operation with other churches in our area, which feeds 2,000 people per month, counseling them, and getting them the assistance that they need.

Churches today have to walk a fine line.

The spiritual battle the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.

Modern sitcoms, such as “Will and Grace” are written by Liberals, and are thus infused with their beliefs as to what is “Normal”, moral, and ethical. And, as seen by how rapidly these programs appear and disappear from national television, their views reflect those of a minority of America’s population.

Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.

Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?

Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?

Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.

It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.

The election of Donald J. Trump as President on November 16, 2016 exacerbated Modern American Liberals anti-Christian Psychosis.

The problem for them is, they are still hopelessly outnumbered.

According to a Pew Forum Survey, more than 13 million Americans are self-described atheists and agnostics, comprising less than 6% of the U.S. public.

I have never understood Atheists, especially the so-called activists among them.

Our Constitution provides for Freedom of Religion.

According to the Supreme Court, in their Ruling abolishing School Prayer, Atheism is a religion, which the Americans who embrace this nihilism are free to practice.

So, why the continuous full-blown attack on the Faith which our Founding Fathers wrote so eloquently about, and which has sustained this “shining city on a hill” through times of internal and external strife?

In other words, why are activist Atheists (and Progressives) so intent to either limit or completely eliminate Christianity’s influence on everyday American Life, as exhibited by the continued attacks on the “Will and Grace” Program?

Why don’t they attack the political/religious ideology of Islam with the same fervor?

The answer to this question is simple:  Cowards will always tell you whom they are afraid of. They will avoid them, like one avoids a child with Chicken Pox.

Additionally, they expect Christians to allow them to take control by “turning the other cheek.”

Evidently, they never read the scriptures which describe Jesus running the “money lenders” out of the temple, overturning tables, and expressing his righteous indignation in a way in which no one could mistake it for anything else.

Or, perhaps, it’s the overwhelming overestimation of their own intelligence, which results from ignoring the influence of the God of Abraham in their life.

So, what drives them in this “Unholy Crusade”?

Bitterness, emptiness, and an unfulfilled longing in their soul which they cannot put a finger on, is the only explanation.

Otherwise, why would they fight so hard against the influence of and worship of Someone they don’t personally believe in?

This reboot of “Will and Grace” will, sooner than later, be cancelled.

The Faith of Our Fathers will remain.

Until He Comes,

Mike Pence, The Rights of the Unborn, and The “Pro-Life Generation”

October 6, 2016

gettyimages-506278824_0

I would tell you — the sanctity of life proceeds out of the belief that ancient principle where God says before you were formed in the womb I knew you, and so for my first time in public life, I sought to stand with great compassion for the sanctity of life. Society will be judged by how it defends its most vulnerable – the aged, the infirm, the disabled, and the unborn.- Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate Mike Pence, October 4, 2016

…The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights. Now, that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support. It doesn’t mean that, you know, don’t do everything possible to try to fulfill your obligations. But it does not include sacrificing the woman’s right to make decisions. – Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, “Meet The Press”, April 3, 2016

CNSNews.com reports that

CEO of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards says she doesn’t know at what point a baby receives constitutional rights.

On Tuesday, Doug Wagner of WHO Newsradio in Iowa discussed Hillary Clinton’s view that constitutional rights for the unborn don’t exist. He then asked Richards her thoughts on the issue.

Wagner said, “At what point does that child – or that unborn person, fetus – whatever you want to call it – at what point does that baby get the constitutional rights?”

“Well, I don’t really, actually – I don’t know that there’s an exact answer for that” Richards replied.

“Because what the point is (inaudible) that women have and there are, as you know, restrictions on women’s ability to terminate a pregnancy – and when they can, but until a pregnancy is viable they have the right to make that decision.”

“I think it really, honestly that’s not the problem we are facing in America,” Richards continued. “What we are facing in America is the fact that women in many states have fewer rights to access basic health care. And again, I think it’s really important that we be honest here about birth control.”

It should be no surprise to anyone that Hillary and those who support her, like Cecile Richards, who dismiss the humanity of the unborn, feel this way.

Hillary, like Obama, sincerely believes that she is the smartest person in any room that she happens to walk into. There is no room in her ego-filled heart and mind, for a Supreme Being.

Hillary, herself, believes that she is the sole arbiter of Right and Wrong in her life.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent  pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face?

You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift shouldn’t surprise anyone that a Far Left Radical Follower of Saul Alinsky, like Hillary Rodham Clinton, should call an unborn human being a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has a abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” writes:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

Life begins at the moment of conception, and an abortion stops a beating heart.

There is no way around that.

However, I realize that referring to the act of abortion as “killing a baby” makes pro- abortion advocates lose their feeble minds.

Ask me if I care.

They have spent years and years trying to convince the gullible among us, that it is not really a human being growing inside the mothers womb. And, even if it is, it is a punishment or, at least, that’s what the President of the United States referred to an unwanted baby as.

In our “One Nation Under God” today, President Obama and his Administration continue their fight for the “right” to allow women to kill their babies in the womb. It is as simple as that.

However, boys and girls, there are other options for unwed mothers. For instance, there’s this wonderful thing called adoption, through which of woman who does not want to be a single mother, can give her unwanted baby to a couple who will love and cherish that human life, and raise it in the way in which it should go.

Have you ever thought about why Liberal Abortion Advocates like Hillary Clinton and Cecile Richards do not focus on that option, but instead advocates for the disposal of human life?

There is a simple and chilling exclamation:

Couples who want to adopt are responsible loving people who are less likely to run to Uncle Sugar for help in raising their child.

While women who seek abortions, tend to be of a lower economic strata and a more government- dependent lifestyle.

Like the purpose for passing the  national nightmare known as Obamacare, it all boils down to State Control of the populace.

In a State-Controlled Nation, there will be, by necessity, no room for the existence of individual conscience nor Religious Freedom. For in a state-controlled nation, the Central Government itself is god.

The good news is that Americans are fighting back against this “Culture of Death”.

Per TheHill.com, in a post published just this morning,

The most recent Marist Poll from this summer shows that a 53% majority of Americans support a strong pro-life policy of limiting abortions only to cases of rape, incest, or medical emergencies. An overwhelming 78% supermajority support, at a minimum, limiting abortion only to the first three months of pregnancy. Sixty-two of Americans oppose forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for abortions.

I believe that the Great American Silent Majority will the deciding factor in the Upcoming Presidential Election in November.

In the case of “Abortion On Demand”, average Americans have recognized the obvious.

As President Ronald Reagan observed, all those decades ago,

I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.

Until He Comes,

Have I Stopped Being a Christian American Conservative Because I’m Voting For Trump? (Seriously?)

July 24, 2016

th (63)With the 2016 Democratic National Convention (and Police Line-up) about to get underway, I was sent reeling this week from a private message which I received from an old friend who stood by my side, on a now-dying Internet Political website, as we and our fellow Conservatives fought against Liberal Trolls and the destruction of our Sovereign Nation by President Barack Hussein Obama.

I was dressed down for, as a Christian American Conservative, calling Senator Ted Cruz out for not supporting Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump, in his speech at the Republican National Convention.

I was informed, basically, that I “disappointed” him.

In response, may I say that as a Christian American Conservative, who has written 2,318 posts since April of 2010 to back up that assertion, my record speaks for itself.

And, as a Christian American Conservative, I am far from being alone in my support of Trump’s Candidacy.

For example…

The Christian Post reports that

When House Speaker Paul Ryan delivered a glowing introduction of Republican vice-presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, on Wednesday night, the governor humbly reacted: “He knows that the introduction I prefer is much shorter. I’m a Christian, a Conservative, and a Republican, in that order.”

For Ryan, however, the shorter introduction wasn’t enough.

Pence, he told delegates at the convention, is “a man of solid character who sees public service as a calling, not a career.”

“This man is a Reagan conservative through and through, pro-growth, pro-life, pro-strong defense,” said Ryan of the father of three.

“My fellow Republicans, the man that you have nominated, he’s a man of faith, he’s a man of conviction, he’s a man you can trust, he comes from the heart of the conservative movement and from the heart of America, and now we need to send him and Donald Trump straight to the White House. There is no doubt in my mind that he will bring real change to Washington. I have every confidence that he will do us all proud,” Ryan added to cheers.

Pence would later explain in his address: “For those of you who don’t know me, which is most of you, I grew up on the front row of the American dream. My grandfather immigrated to this country, and I was raised in a small town in Southern Indiana in a big family with a cornfield in the backyard. Although we weren’t really a political family, the heroes of my youth were President John F. Kennedy and the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

Despite his quiet demeanor, Pence quickly delivered some stealthy blows to the campaign of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, and said he had every intention to win the White House with Donald Trump in November.

“Under Donald Trump, our deals will be smarter … our soldiers will have what they need and our veterans will have what they earned. … We will secure our borders and protect our nation. In all of this, and more, we will get serious. And when we do, this nation will start winning again,” he said.

“It’s the message that men and women in both parties have been longing to hear. But none of us should think for one second that this will be easy. The outcome of this election depends on us, and how we contend with an incredible onslaught coming our way,” he continued.

“This won’t be America’s first glimpse of the Clinton machine in action, as Bernie Sanders can tell you. And this time around, she’ll have the press doing half her work for her. The good news is, it won’t be nearly enough — not against a candidate who has captured the attention of this country the way that Donald Trump has,” he said.

…”Now, the establishment in Washington, D.C. thinks it’s only a narrow range of voters who are giving Donald Trump a serious look. But I can tell you first hand, there’s a lot of Americans out there who feel like Democrat politicians have taken them for granted,” said Pence.

“It’s union members, who don’t want a president who promises ‘to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.’ They want American energy and they know Donald Trump digs coal. It’s African-Americans, who remember generations of hollow promises about safe streets and better schools. And they know Donald Trump will fight for equal opportunity and loves school choice,” he said. “And it’s Hispanic-Americans, who respect the law, want jobs and opportunities for their families, who know Donald Trump will uphold the law and get this economy moving again.”

He continued: “The party of Lincoln was founded on equality of opportunity, and during these difficult days it will be our party and our agenda that will open doors for every American. In so many ways, the Democratic Party has abandoned those it used to protect. Maybe they’ve become too entrenched in power, so comfortable at times that they lose patience with the normal legislative process.”

“As this election approaches, every American should know that while we’re filling the presidency for the next four years, this election will define the Supreme Court for the next 40,” he added.

Pence also promised that if he is elected to the White House with Donald Trump that he would pray every day for the wisdom to govern.

“There seem to be so many things that divide us, so few great purposes that unite us as they once did. And it’s at moments like this, moments when politics fail, that we do well to remember that what unites us far exceeds anything that sets us apart. That we are, as we have always been, one nation, under God,” he said.

“Should I have the awesome privilege to serve as your vice president, I promise to keep faith with that conviction. To pray daily for a wise and ‘discerning heart … for who is able to govern this great people.’ My fellow Americans, I believe we have come to another rendezvous with destiny, and I have faith … faith in the boundless capacity of the American people and faith that God can still heal our land,” he continued.

However, my friend is not alone in his opinion.

According to some people, you are not truly a Christian or a Conservative, if you are willing to support and vote for Donald J. Trump, the Republican Presidential Candidate.

However, I beg to differ, and I stand with the Reverend Franklin Graham on this issue.

In  a  Facebook Post, written during the Republican Primaries, Rev. Graham wrote:

Trump Madness—It’s “trumping” everything in the news, even March Madness. Do you believe protesters blocking the road to his rally to stop people from getting there today? There are those who passionately support him and others who are adamantly against him. He’s a political phenomenon like our country hasn’t seen before. I don’t think America has ever had a presidential candidate opposed by both establishments, Republican and Democratic, as well as the sitting president. I just hope that as a result of this unforgettable campaign season, politicians on all sides will get the message loud and clear that Americans are tired of the status quo and the corruption that has gripped Washington. Join me in praying for the 2016 elections and for the future of this nation.

That being said, Rev. Graham, in a previous interview, done with CBN, stated that  “a left movement within the evangelical community that are telling people, ‘If so-and-so wins or this person wins don’t vote.’ ” Rev. Graham went on to add, “I’m just saying, I don’t care who wins and who’s out there, you have to vote.”

I do not believe that Jesus would be a part of the Social Justice Movement, which is so popular among Liberal Churches, today. His was and is a soul-saving movement. One that still brings hundreds of thousand of people to individual salvation on this terrestrial ball every day. A movement that, in fact, was embraced by the founders of this cherished land.

Now is not the time to be pressing Christian Americans to make a “collective” choice to not support Trump, to move as “a Body”, if you will.

That being said, allow me to also state that I believe that American Evangelicals must excise their Spiritual Gift of Discernment in choosing between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton for the job of President.

When Mitt Romney was the Republican Candidate for President in 2012, a lot of Americans stayed home, rather than vote for Romney.

That may have helped those individuals feel better about themselves, but it also helped to bring them and their fellow citizens four more years of economic suffering under the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Just as a Christian’s Salvation is not manifested as a Collective Experience, but a Personal one, so is a Christian American’s Voting Rights a Personal Experience.

I had somebody tell me during the Primaries, that they would “pray for me” to make the “right” choice, in the upcoming Presidential Election.

While the prayers of others are always appreciated, that hit me as if it was “The Church Lady” saying,

Well, bless your heart.

That’s an old Southern insult, in case you didn’t know.

My support of Donald  J. Trump, through the articles that I write, is my individual choice, made through a detailed study of facts and with a heart-felt reverence toward this Sacred Land and the One who brought our Forefathers here.

Can you vote for Donald J. Trump and still be a Christian?

Certainly you can.

Your Salvation is not determined by your vote…but, by God’s Grace.

And…

As Christians we are instructed to individually listen to that “Still Small Voice” inside us.

While Christians, in church and outside of it, represent the corporate Body of Christ, according to scripture, we each possess the Spiritual Gifts of Free Will and Discernment.

These gifts are used by each of us on a daily basis, including aiding in our decision to support a Presidential Candidate in the Election of 2016.

Unlike Liberals and Marxists (but, I may be repeating myself), we do not vote as a collective, nor should we.

There are no Saints who will be running as for the President of the United States of America, on either side. Just men and a woman…a very mean and evil woman.

And, America’s Christian Churches are not a Shrine for Saints. They are a Hospital for Sinners.

I’m just sayin’.

Each of us must decide for ourselves, whom we will vote for.

Since the “Shot Heard ‘Round The World” was fired on that fateful morning of April 19, 1775, this country has been built by Christian Americans making individual choices.

Our Individual Salvation is not determined by whom we vote for…but, by God’s Grace.

However, the much-needed Reclamation of America must certainly will be.

And, that is why this Christian American Conservative is voting for Donald J. Trump.

“A Charge to Keep I Have.”

The War Against Christianity: The Indiana Law: Bullies With Microphones

April 1, 2015

image

As I wrote about earlier this week, one of the major topics of discussion in our country is still Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law. This law was intended to protect Christians and other faiths in Indiana from Religious Persecution.

Yesterday, on the cusp of passing an identical piece of legislation, the Governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, told his state legislature to hold up, and that there needs to be some revisions made to the law. Governor Mike Pence of Indiana plans to do the same with his state’s law.

To quote the late, great Slim Pickens in Mel Brooks’ classic, “Blazing Saddles”,

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is a’goin’ on here?

This seemingly innocuous law, designed to protect Americans and their chosen faith, has started a Liberal-manufactured firestorm, fueled by the Main Stream Media, for the express purpose of intimidation, bullying, if you will.

Progressives, or Liberals, are still the minority political ideology in this country, surprisingly only 24% of the American Population, per gallup.com.  However, that does not stop them from attempting to force their beliefs on the entire nation.

They’re very adept at finding the nearest and loudest microphone and ranting and raving in it as loud as they can, for as long as they can, until someone listens to them.

Using this technique, their efforts are splashed all over both the Main Stream and New Medias, presenting propaganda reinforcing their erroneous claim that their cock-eyed view of American Christians, is actually the majority of thought of average Americans.

Heading into Easter weekend, I find this to be very ironic…and very sad.

Gallup.com tells us that Christianity is still the faith of choice of 74% of Americans.

Now, I am NOT a mathematician.

However I did win the 8th grade math contest, but that is neither here nor there. But, I digress…

It appears to me that there are actually more Christians in America among average citizens, then there are loud-mouthed Progressives.

Therefore, the wailing and gnashing of teeth of this minority population, signifies to me that they are desperate and trying to gin up momentum for their quixotic quest to legalize gay marriage in the United States and to change the meaning of a time-honored word, which until now, has always meant the joining of a man and a woman in Holy Matrimony.

Progressives’ use of a Liberal Judiciary to overturn states’ votes, which had disallowed gay marriage in the majority of American States, has not been greeted warmly by the American People as a whole.

And now, this concerted effort, which quite frankly appears to be fascist in nature,  to force Christian Businessmen and Businesswomen to forgo their faith, in order to service gay marriages, is meeting a backlash from average Americans living in the Heartland, which is being desperately covered up by the Main Stream Media and the shrieking Progressives.

Americans with common sense are asking…

Why can’t these gay couples simply go to other businesses, who will bake their wedding cakes for them, instead of trying to force Christian Americans to do something which is against their faith?

I find these couples’ politically-motivated actions to be intolerant, insensitive, demanding, and downright rude.

Our Constitution gives us Religious Freedom in its very First Amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Please note that this amendment does not say “in some circumstances”.

I have said time and time again, that I find it funny that those among us who claim to be the most tolerant are actually the least tolerant of all.

However, this attack on our faith as Christian Americans, is not funny at all.

This Media Blitz is not about discrimination, it is about control. Control of American Christians’ daily lives.

It is a rewriting and an attempted negating of God’s Word by those who cannot win a political or spiritual argument and are now trying to win a culture war by claiming that this law is something that it is not.

Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler ‘ s Minister of Propaganda, once said that

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

As proven by yesterday’s revelation that Harry Reid lied about Mitt Romney’s supposed tax evasion in 2012, in order to prevent him from winning the Presidency,and now the Liberals’ War against Christian American Small Business Owners, based on the lie that these business owners will not serve gay people, ever, it appears that Goebbels was actually right about the intolerant gullibility of some people.

Even, in a country founded by Christian Men.

The Indiana Law: Liberals Call Christianity “Discrimination”

March 29, 2015

 

 

 

American Christianity 2The state of Indiana has come out in favor of Freedom of Religion.

And, Modern Liberals have lost their minds over it.

Foxnews.com reports that

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said Sunday that a new state law that attempts to protect long-standing religious freedoms “is not about discrimination” and that he and other state lawmakers do not intend to change the legislation.

Pence, a Republican, said the legislation that he signed last week prohibits Indiana laws that “substantially burden” a person’s ability to follow his or her religious beliefs.

The definition of “person” includes religious institutions, businesses and associations, which is being interpreted as allowing a cake maker, for example, to legally refuse an order for a wedding cake for a gay couple.

Pence told ABC’s “This Week” the original federal law is more than 20 years old and that the purpose of the new Indiana one is to expand individual rights for those who feel government has impinged on their personal rights.

“This is not about discrimination,” he said. “This is about empowering people to confront government overreach.”

However, Pence did not answer directly when asked six times whether under the law it would be legal for a merchant to refuse to serve gay customers.

“The issue here is still: Is tolerance a two-way street or not?” he responded several times.

Since he signed the bill into law, Indiana has been widely criticized by businesses and organizations around the nation, as well as on social media with the hashtag #boycottindiana. Already, consumer review service Angie’s List has said it will suspend a planned expansion that includes Indianapolis because of the new law.

Pence said earlier this weekend that he’ll look at a bill to clarify the law’s intent if lawmakers send him one. He also told the Indianapolis Star on Saturday that he is in discussions with state legislative leaders and expects a clarification bill to be introduced in the coming week.

But Pence was adamant Sunday that the measure, slated to take effect in July, will stick.

“We’re not going to change the law,” he said.

Some national gay-rights groups say it’s a way for lawmakers in Indiana and several other states where such bills have been proposed this year to essentially grant a state-sanctioned waiver for discrimination as the nation’s highest court prepares to mull the gay marriage question.

Supporters of the law, including Pence, contend discrimination claims are overblown and insist it will keep the government from compelling people to provide services they find objectionable on religious grounds. They also maintain courts haven’t allowed discrimination under similar laws covering the federal government and 19 other states. Arkansas is poised to follow in Indiana’s footsteps, with a final vote expected next week in the House on legislation that Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson has said he’ll sign.

Anyone who has read my blog for any length of time knows exactly what my feelings are on the subject of gay marriage.

I agree with the Reverend Mitchell, former pastor of the old landmark church in Chicago Illinois who said, and I quote,

The Good Lord made Adam and Eve. He did not make Adam and Steve. Can I get a witness?

And, may I add, if he did make Adam and Steve, none of us would be here because, try as they might, homosexuals cannot procreate.

The Homosexual Lobby and their supporters, affectionately known as the “Gay Mafia”, arehave been stepping it up a notch for quite a while now, suing Americans and getting them fired over their Christian faith.

Even the real Mafia does not attack people’s faith. In fact, the legendary Mafioso, Al Capone, gave tons of money to Chicago’s Catholic Charities. And, when the Mafia has to terminate the employment of one of their soldiers, emphasis on the word terminate, they make sure that their family is taken care of.

Not so with the Gay Mafia. If you do not support their agenda, they will sue you, see that you are fired, make you lose everything that you have in this world, and will not care one bit, if you and your family are put out on the street.

Just as the decadent leaders of ancient Rome fed the early Christians to the Lions, so is the unconscionable Gay Mafia tossing aside Christians in their quest for their deviant sexual behavior to be classified as normal.

In fact, I’ll go you one better: these idiots’ fanatical insensitivity to the welfare of believers who have the moral courage to oppose their hedonistic lifestyle, is reminiscent of those Radical Muslims we know as the Taliban.

Which is the height of irony if you think about it, because Radical Muslims not only behead Christians, they remove the heads of homosexual Muslims as well.

You have seen me saying time and time again, that it is funny how those among us who claim to be the most tolerant, are actually the least of all.

The Gay Mafia or, more appropriately, The Gay Taliban, are prime examples.

As with any liberal, as long as you believe what they believe, you’re one of the smartest people in the room. However,as soon as you cross them, and stand up for your own Christian Heritage of Faith, you are labeled a stupid “Christianist” and/or an “intolerant”, inbred hillbilly.

Additionally, when the voters of a state get together to express their opposition to homosexual marriage through their right to vote, the Gay Mafia finds a sympathetic judge to rule that marriage is a “Civil Right”, instead of a Holy Sacrament…a bond between a man and a woman, ordained by God.

The problem that Christians and Conservatives alike face is the fact that being Pro-homosexual marriage is the “cool” thing to be now.

Even if it is at the expense of the First Amendment.

Those who are in the Pro-Homosexual Marriage Liberal Lobbying Group, or “Gay Mafia”, firmly believe that their right to force us to accept their belief system trumps our First Amendment Rights as Christian Americans to practice our faith in the workplace.

They’re WRONG.

So, what’s the answer?

Simple. Average Americans, like you and me, either stand up on their hind legs, ignore the push polls, open the window and shout “I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take this anymore” or we just sit back like lambs led to the slaughter and watch as our Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion fade away like the ancient Roman Empire.

And, I aint lion…err…lyin’.
