Ted Cruz: Why I am voting for Trump.  Why You should too.

 

This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.

In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.

Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.

Six key policy differences inform my decision. First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”

For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.

Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.

Third, energy. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s war on coal and relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry. Trump has said he will reduce regulations and allow the blossoming American energy renaissance to create millions of new high-paying jobs.

Fourth, immigration. Clinton would continue and even expand President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty. Trump has promised that he would revoke those illegal executive orders.

Fifth, national security. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism. She would continue importing Middle Eastern refugees whom the FBI cannot vet to make sure they are not terrorists. Trump has promised to stop the deluge of unvetted refugees.

Sixth, Internet freedom. Clinton supports Obama’s plan to hand over control of the Internet to an international community of stakeholders, including Russia, China, and Iran. Just this week, Trump came out strongly against that plan, and in support of free speech online.

These are six vital issues where the candidates’ positions present a clear choice for the American people.

If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.

My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.

We also have seen, over the past few weeks and months, a Trump campaign focusing more and more on freedom — including emphasizing school choice and the power of economic growth to lift African-Americans and Hispanics to prosperity.

Finally, after eight years of a lawless Obama administration, targeting and persecuting those disfavored by the administration, fidelity to the rule of law has never been more important.

The Supreme Court will be critical in preserving the rule of law. And, if the next administration fails to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then I hope that Republicans and Democrats will stand united in protecting our fundamental liberties.

Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.

A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.

Mario Murillo Ministries: Stopping the Nation Killing Machine

Stopping the Nation Killing Machine

By Mario Murillo

Hollywood, pop singers, sports figures, politicians, tech giants like Google, Apple and Amazon along with countless college professors are turning our children’s minds into a nation-killing machine.

This coalition has untold billions of dollars at their disposal.  They control the airwaves—and through Obama and Clinton, the FBI and the IRS.  They can rig elections.

Months ago this would have sounded like a tinfoil cone conspiracy—not anymore.

Now let’s talk about what God is doing.

As a kid, I liked monster movies.  (We are indeed in a monster movie right now.)  Those of you old enough to remember the black and white monster movies featured giant insects, aliens and people.  The culprit was almost always the A-Bomb tests.

There were two elements in those movies: 1. A dark moment of hopelessness when all weapons failed.  2. A controversial scientist who worked out of a barn.

The military reluctantly had to use the weapon from the barn…the monster was defeated.

I freely admit that Mario Murillo Ministries is that scientist working out of the barn.  When this beast of political correctness first oozed out of the swamp, we started warning the church.  

We declared that signs and wonders and the conviction of the Holy Spirit are the only weapons for a brain-washed generation.

We declared that we needed to stop fearing politicians and call them out.

We said young minds needed to hear why the teaching of Jesus is divine and they needed to hear the truth about American history.

Then the name-calling and ridicule began.  We were told it would never work.  We were roundly criticized and rejected.  None of this stopped us from finishing our divine training under the Holy Spirit.

Then came the summer of 2016.  The weapon came out of the barn and leaders began to see how it is exactly what is needed.  october-4

The images you see in this blog are snapshots of outreach this summer.  It was a summer of supernatural transformations and no compromise.

Leaders see how the make nice gospel is only making things worse.  Influential pastors are breaking with tradition and joining us on the frontline.  Most of all…there is a growing recognition that this weapon can kill the monster.

In an added piece of exciting news…phase one of our World Headquarters is now complete.  We have secured…and paid cash for a suite of offices in Sparks, Nevada.  The name of our offices is The War Room.  This is our new “barn” and brain center for the next phase of our national invasion to bring Living Proof to the youth of America.

Actual Video of the Moment a Dying Man was instantly Healed

healing-copy

 

It is one thing to say a miracle has taken place but it is quite another to provide the proof.  Here is the actual footage of the astounding moment that a dying man was instantly healed by Christ.

Howard Kratzer moved to Phoenix to be with his grandchildren before he died.  He was dying because the bottom half of his heart was dead.  Even though he was on a waiting list for a heart transplant, it was almost certain he would die before a new heart became available.

He lived in the shadow of death.  He took the highest dosage of nitroglycerin ever prescribed in Arizona.  He was determined to stay active—especially in his church, Phoenix First Assembly of God.

His healing was so remarkable that Pastor Barnett had to take the mike and reaffirm to the audience that this was indeed an astounding miracle.

It has been 24 years since that day and Howard continues to defy all medical explanation for his new heart and health.  We know who did this!

Now it is time for you to receive!  Read this simple message

God wants to heal you more than you want to be healed.

Romans 8:32 asks the wounded soul that wonders about God’s willingness to heal a burning question, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”  This question echoes in eternity. Everything that you ever ask God must be asked from the foot of the Cross.  It is here and here alone that you can fully see your Father’s heart toward you.   The bar is set.  God gave His Son for you and He will not hold back anything good from you!

  1. We have confused divine faith with human belief.

Human belief is the fool’s gold of miracles. It looks right, it feels right but it bitterly fails where it matters most.  A miracle begins and ends with God. He is in the very first step and every subsequent step.

There are two Greek words for faith that we must understand. Though they are very close in meaning and appearance, they are a universe apart! Pistis means firm conviction or persuasion and Pistos which means dependency on or trust in something or someone.

There is human faith which convinces itself that something is going to happen. This human belief works in the mind not in the heart.   Mental conviction is

vital and has its place but not in the atmosphere of the supernatural.  I have seen many try to work up a miracle and think that within themselves they could

move God to heal.  If they could remove doubt and repeat verses over and over again, they surmised, God would heal. When you try to use human belief in the arena of the miraculous it becomes a cold mental exercise.  The faith that causes miracles is a grace of the heart that God imparts right before He heals.

I talked with two different people one night before a miracle rally.  The first was a man who told me that God would heal him that night. He told me that he had them send his wheel chair away because he would not need it.  “God had to live up to His word,” he spouted.  This was classic pistis, powerful in daily life but not appropriate for this miracle moment.  My heart sank.

I met another person and her face glowed even in her wheel chair!  She said, “Today I have been with Jesus I can sense Him now, this is my night!”  Here was faith, faith that moves mountains.  Here was the force that created the universe imparted to this little lady’s heart.  I knew that she would walk and sure enough at the appointed time in the service she rose and darted across the front of the arena!

 

  1. Jesus gives us Miracle Faith through the Holy Spirit.

Jesus gave the Holy Spirit everything that He earned on the Cross.  The Holy Spirit carries us in prayer to Christ to both gain true faith and healing.  If only we would grasp the power of humbling ourselves before God!  If only we would rest in the surpassing goodness of God!

Right now you can stop the madness that torments your mind.  Ask the Holy Spirit to carry you to Christ where you will receive Faith.  Do not over analyze, do not fret…rest!   Let Him do His work. Let Him carry you now.  In the face of a doctor’s fearful predictions, vicious pain and weakness… rest!  Do not choose the human faith that grits its teeth and wars in the natural for that which can only be won in the spirit and by the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit knows you better than you know yourself. He wants to take over your case and bear you up on wings that far surpass the wings of Angels.  Soon you will lose all fear and face Jesus Himself.

  1. God wants to make it easy! Let us sum up the matter. It is time to do it God’s way. We are healed by Faith and no one described this faith better than Peter who said in Acts 3:16

“And his name through Faith in his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know: yes, the Faith which comes through him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”  Here is the clear and undeniable picture of Christ as the giver of Faith, Faith that heals.  This is the Pistos that cannot help but heal and move mountains!  This Faith cannot be present without a miracle.  When you have it a strange, bold and beautiful feeling envelopes you and not only do you not doubt, you have lost the power to doubt! Perhaps this is God’s anesthesia, which He applies just before the miracle.  All I know is that when it is there time stands still and all power in heaven and earth cannot stop you from receiving your complete healing.

If you need prayer, let us agree with you for a miracle.  Click below to contact us!

Hillary poured gasoline on Charlotte

Hillary Poured Gasoline on Charlotte

 

Clinton joins rush to condemn police before details emerge, 16 officers injured in resulting riot

by Kathryn Blackhurst | Updated 21 Sep 2016 at 5:05 PM

Hillary Clinton pounced on late-breaking news Tuesday of two fatal police shootings of a black men in Charlotte, North Carolina and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

In a direct tweet from the Democratic presidential nominee herself — marked by an “-H” — Clinton tweeted at 1:35 p.m. on Tuesday, “Another unarmed Black man was shot in a police incident. This should be intolerable. We have so much work to do.”

Another unarmed Black man was shot in a police incident. This should be intolerable. We have so much work to do.

10:35 AM – 20 Sep 2016

Though Clinton was talking about the shooting in Tulsa, Oklahoma, her inflammatory weight-in no doubt helped incite the violent riots that left 16 police injured in Charlotte.

Brentley Vinson — a black police officer — shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott, a father of seven, in a parking lot while serving a warrant to a different man in the adjacent apartment complex Tuesday in North Carolina’s largest city. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has said that Scott was holding a gun and pointed to eyewitness accounts that back up the police account.

“The subject got back out of the vehicle armed with a firearm and posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers who subsequently fired their weapon striking the subject,” police said, according to KTLA-5.

Details of the Tulsa, Oklahoma shooting were certainly limited at the time Clinton sent her tweet, with just an ABC affiliate reporting the shooting victim was unarmed.

Waiting to know the facts didn’t stop Clinton, and others held hostage by their allegiance to the Black Lives Matter movement, from rushing to judgement on the incident.

The incident is particularly iconic coming just days after the liberal media pounced all over Republican nominee Donald Trump for immediately calling the weekend explosions in New York and New Jersey the results of a terrorist bombing before that was confirmed by law enforcement. It turned out the explosions did indeed arise from jihadist bombs.

“[Trump’s] being criticized for talking about the New York bomb before local officials or local law enforcement had a chance to do so,” CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper told New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Sunday. “And his opponent tried to draw a contrast. She waited hours later, until local officials spoke, and then she said this.”

Tapper then proceeded to air a conveniently edited clip that omitted Clinton mentioning the “bombings in New York and New Jersey,” emphasizing instead Clinton saying, “I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. I think it’s always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions.”

Tapper implies Trump reaction to ‘bombings’ inappropriate, edits clip of Clinton saying same thing

Similar to other recent police-shooting incidents, a social media wave that included Clinton’s tweet precipitated violent protests across the city of Charlotte.

Chanting “No justice, no peace,” the protesters stormed Interstate 85 as TV footage showed them appearing to loot semi trucks and setting the objects on fire on the highway. Others chucked rocks and bottles at police officers gathered to monitor the riot, including striking one officer in the face with a rock. The protesters also jumped on at least one police van and stomped on it while smashing its windows. Police ultimately dispersed tear gas in an attempt to control and clear the streets at around 11 p.m. on Tuesday. At least seven bystanders who sustained injuries were taken to the hospital and at least five protesters were arrested.

At least 16 police officers were injured in the clash.

The mainstream media, of course, is unlikely to press Clinton or her campaign for her role in inciting violence against police officers and for misleading the public on a law enforcement incident before the facts were known.

“We have got to tackle systemic racism,” Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Tuesday on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” while addressing last week’s police shooting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “And maybe I can, by speaking directly to white people, say, ‘Look, this is not who we are’ … We have got to do everything possible to improve policing, to go right at implicit bias.”

George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary Clinton

George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary Clinton

A Kennedy outs a Bush who favors a Clinton.
By DARREN SAMUELSOHN 09/19/16 11:20 PM EDT Updated 09/19/16 11:36 PM EDT

Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party’s presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.
Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

On Monday, Townsend posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
In a telephone interview, Townsend said she met with the former president in Maine earlier today, where she said he made his preference known that he was voting for a Democrat. “That’s what he said,” she told POLITICO.

Asked about Townsend’s post, George H.W. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath in an email replied, “The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”

George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush have stayed out of the political debate since campaigning earlier this year for their son Jeb’s unsuccessful bid for president. Neither George H.W. Bush nor his son, former President George W. Bush, attended this summer’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland where Trump accepted the nomination.

An expert explains why Trump will win

ELECTORAL COLLEGE MATH, AND WHY I THINK TRUMP WILL WIN

As Donald Trump has caught up with Hillary Clinton in the polls, he has likewise closed the gap in the electoral college. Ipsos/Reuters says the race to 270 votes is now nearly tied. Many are focusing on Maine, which allocates its electoral college votes by Congressional district, and where one district going for Trump might change the result.

A reader who has been studying the numbers sends a link to 538 (“Democrats Should Panic … If The Polls Still Look Like This In A Week”) and adds:

I presume Trump wins Nevada. Adjusting for that, if this is accurate Trump loses 265 – 273. So he needs New Hampshire desperately to tie, and then win in the House…or NH plus Maine’s 2nd Congressional District for a bare win 270 – 268, second closest in history.

That could be right. But I think more likely, Trump will win rather easily, and win going away as he did the Republican primaries. I expect him to carry states like Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, maybe even Pennsylvania. Why? Two reasons.

The first can be explained with an old story from the world of marketing:

A company came out with a new dog food, and hired an advertising firm to promote the product. The ad agency placed commercials on television and ads in magazines; millions of dollars went into the campaign. The commercials and ads were first-rate, but still the dog food did not sell. The client called a meeting at the ad agency and demanded to know what had gone wrong.

After a moment of silence, the leader of the ad agency team explained: “The dogs don’t like it.”

Hillary Clinton can be re-launched, re-packaged, and protected by a phalanx of reporters. The liberal establishment can do its best to jam her down our throats. But we–the voters–don’t like her. And the more we see of her, the more our dislike is confirmed. She is too weak a candidate to be elected president.

Second, everyone knows that the press is trying to elect Hillary, and most Americans resent it. Every day, editors and reporters try to inflict an anti-Trump theme on the rest of us. Today’s hysteria revolves around Trump’s comments on Hillary’s hypocrisy regarding gun control:

She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before. I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm. Right? Right? I think they should disarm immediately. What do you think? Yes? Yes. Yeah. Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns. … Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, okay? It would be very dangerous.

Trump obviously was making the point that he and countless others have made many times before: liberals like Hillary Clinton, who are protected 24/7 by armed guards, are deeply hypocritical when they try to disarm millions of Americans who don’t have taxpayer-funded protection and rely on their own firearms for self-defense. The point is a powerful one, which is why liberal reporters don’t want to acknowledge it. Instead, they absurdly pretend that Trump was hinting that Hillary should be assassinated.

This kind of thing fools no one. Millions of Americans are quietly fuming over the press’s overreach, going over the top, day after day, to defeat Donald Trump. The blowback is building, and will continue building until election day.

At one point, when I was opposing Trump during the GOP primaries, I said to the press: Stop attacking Trump! Liberal reporters often began with a valid point, but their hysterical hatred for Trump caused them to go too far, making arguments that were patently unfair and unsustainable. Therefore, the more they attacked Trump the more his support grew. The same thing is happening now: most Americans have a pretty good sense of fair play, and they know that Trump is being treated badly by the establishment–a group for whom most Americans have no great affection.

Much more could be said, and will be between now and November 8. But let’s leave it there for now. Like most observers, I have usually been wrong this year, so there is no reason why anyone should pay much attention. But, for what it is worth, I don’t think this year’s election will turn out to be a nail-biter. Nor will it be a landslide, but I do expect a relatively easy win for Donald Trump in both the popular vote and the electoral college.

Could Trump screw it up by making a horrible blunder? Of course. But I think there is a greater chance of disaster coming from the Clinton campaign.

 

Guess what they did instead of deporting them

Guess what they did instead of deporting them

The immigrants with questionable backgrounds were not identified by name but reportedly all came from “special interest countries.” Those countries include those that pose a national security concern to America.

Feds Mistakenly Grant Citizenship to Hundreds of Immigrants Scheduled for Deportation

This is sure to get the anti-immigrant crowd riled up.  A new Inspector General’s report found that the U.S. government mistakenly gave citizenship to at least 858 immigrants who were supposed to be deported or came from countries with high rates of immigration fraud, according to the report first obtained by The Associated Press. 

The immigrants with questionable backgrounds were not identified by name but reportedly all came from “special interest countries.” Those countries include those that pose a national security concern to America.

In a statement, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said the report reflects issues that the agency has been struggling with. The agency placed the blame on old paper-based records containing fingerprint information that is not easily searchable.

In addition, the auditors found that 953 people had been naturalized despite having outstanding deportation orders. What’s even more troubling is that the audit by DHS Inspector General John Roth found fingerprints missing from the federal database for 315,000 immigrants. According to the AP, at least three of the immigrants who were mistakenly granted citizenship were able to get jobs with aviation or transportation credentials, allowing them access to secure areas. Those credentials were revoked after it was discovered they got citizenship improperly.

LawNewz will stay on this story, and update this article as we get more information.
