Today at the Democratic National Convention

Bernie booed

Watch what happened today at the DNC when Bernie Sanders tells them that they need to vote for Hillary Clinton


PHILADELPHIA — Sen. Bernie Sanders sent a text message to the leaders of his delegation pleading with them not to protest on the Democratic convention floor Monday night.

“I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor,” he wrote in the text message to his delegate whips. “Its of utmost importance you explain this to your delegations.”

He signed the text, “Bernie.”

Many of his delegates did not heed his warning, as some Sanders supporters interrupted the convention’s opening prayer with chants of “Bernie!” DNC Chair Rep. Marcia Fudge reprimanded the delegates for interrupting her opening remarks when she said she was “excited” to help elect Hillary Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine. “Excuse me!” she pleaded, as Sanders delegates interrupted her with boos and chants of “Bernie.”

“We are all Democrats, and we need to act like it,” Fudge said.

Later, Sanders sent an email to his delegates saying that their movement’s credibility would be “damaged” by “booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays.” Sanders said such demonstrations are “what the corporate media wants.”


something horrible is coming


By Mario Murillo

Lot told his wife not to look.  I am telling you not to look.  Something is coming that is so horrible, so mind-numbingly vile that you dare not cast your eyes upon it!  It will infect your brain.  I will fill you with apocalyptic rage.  It will cling to your skin like agent orange.  Once you see it you cannot unsee it!

What is it?  It is the Democratic National Convention.

The convention will officially open.  Then delegates will be compelled to witness a ghoulish operation.  Cosmetic surgery will be performed on the ugliest reputation in political history.  20 major scandals will be lanced like boils.

The subject—wrapped in bandages—will be hoisted to the ceiling of the Wells Fargo Center to be struck by lightning.  As the surgical table descends people everywhere will be screaming IT’S ALIVE! IT’S ALIVE! IT’S ALIVE!

If that happens…a contingency plan is in place.  Finding the reputation still unbearable they will launch into a scorched earth assault on Donald Trump and white people.

They will challenge the Guinness book of world records for the amount of misinformation, vitriol, condescension and false accusations ever dispensed in a span of a few days.

Let me translate Democratic Convention lingo into English: “We’re incompetent and criminal but they are racist.  We have destroyed the economy but they hate Mexicans.  We have turned the Middle East into Armageddon but they don’t want enough bathrooms.  We may not have stopped ISIS but we are stopping American Law Enforcement.”

They will have zero to offer America.  The entire case will be Hillary is horrible but Donald is worse.

The music will swell…an undetected vapor of cannabinoids will waft through the vents helping inquiring minds to embrace the ultimate absurdity: “America is already great.  People are doing better than ever.  Terrorism is just something that most folks don’t think about.  Who needs jobs?  We got free stuff.  Keep everything the way it is.  You can trust me.  We have no plan but we don’t have to plan…we’re the democrats.”

The viewing audience will be treated to a separate narcotic—the media.  Should any speaker suddenly spill something accurate, rational or honest they will instantly pounce on it and hypnotize the faithful back into the fold.

Viewer’s Warning:  Your blood will boil. You may lose hair…and worse yet—I.Q. points. Keep bricks far from your television.  And remember, no matter how loud you scream at the talking heads—they can’t hear you.

Why risk early aging and hardening of the arteries?  When that morbid curiosity—like slowing down to see a train wreck—overtakes you, fight it!  Fight it like the bubonic plague.  Inviting those airwaves into your home is like inviting nuclear waste.   In the name of all that is decent and good…fight the urge!

My advice: Read the Bible.  Pray for revival.   Watch old movies.  Workout, talk a walk… buy the shoes and eat the cookie. Anything, but do not subject your body mind and spirit to this nameless horror.

Kerry: Air conditioners as big a threat as ISIS

Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.

The Washington Examiner reported that Kerry was in Vienna to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, from basic household and commercial appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers.

“As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism,” Kerry said. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”

Kerry said that most of the substances banned in the Montreal Protocol have increased the use of HFCs and claimed that the coolant was thousands of times more potent than CO2. He added that the increase of HFCs has led to the trend of global climate change.

“The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing,” Kerry said. “Already, the HFCs use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.”

Members of the Montreal Protocol have met their obligations and have aided in the shrinking of the hole in the ozone, as well as created jobs and improved the quality of life, Kerry said.

How is voting for Ted Cruz, voting your conscience?

Vote your conscience copy

How is voting for Ted Cruz, voting your conscience?

By Mario Murillo

I am a simple man asking some simple questions.  If the reason you can’t vote for Trump is that he has sinned then please tell me something:  How then, is voting for Cruz voting your conscience? 

-His super PAC released photos of Melania—with Ted’s full knowledge—before Trump said anything about Heidi. 

-The Cruz campaign lied about Ben Carson dropping out of the race to help Ted win Iowa. 

-He mailed out a fraudulent “VOTING VIOLATION,” form.

Donald Trump has never claimed to be the super-Christian that Ted Cruz claims.  Trump even humbly said to evangelicals “I am grateful for your support even though sometimes I don’t feel I deserve it.”

Isn’t Cruz just the opposite?   Didn’t his campaign feel entitled to the evangelical vote? Haven’t they castigated us and questioned our Christianity for not supporting him?  

Didn’t he stand stand foursquare with Mormon commentator Glenn Beck—and, in my opinion, his tacit approval made it look like Mormonism is the same as Christianity.  Ted never condemned Glenn’s decreed to southern evangelicals: “You are not obeying your God!” because they voted for Trump.

However, the thing that seals the deal for me was his behavior at the Republican National Convention.   Wasn’t Ted standing there like a smug martyr parsing words?  Wouldn’t  King Solomon have seen right through him?

In 1 Kings 3, Solomon discovers who the real mom is by threatening to cut the child in half.  The real mom says, “let her have the child but don’t divide it.”  Didn’t Ted Cruz prefer to divide the child?  

I am sorry, but I can’t see how this was courageous conviction. This did not look like Martin Luther nailing truth to the Wittenberg Door—this looked like a man simply out for himself.


Was he so filled with revenge (for a fight he started) that he had to lie one more time?  Didn’t he lie when he wrote his name on a pledge and gave his word to endorse the eventual nominee?   Proverbs 15: 4 “ But he honors those who fear the Lord;  He who swears to his own hurt and does not change.”

As I said in the beginning…I am a simple man asking simple questions.




P.S.  None of this is said in anger or disrespect…I am a simple man asking simple questions.  Please don’t tell me I am lying about Ted Cruz.  These are all facts.  Please comment but be aware that it is a waste of time to post vitriol, abusive language or nutty spiritual gobbly-gook.  Thoughtful rebuttals are most welcome.



Obama’s Malia joke in middle of tribute to Munich dead


‘Some of you are aware there were shootings in Germany. And we don’t yet know exactly what’s happening there, but obviously our hearts go out to those who may have been injured,’ the president said.

‘It’s still an active situation and Germany’s one of our closest allies. So we are going to pledge all the support they may need in dealing with these circumstances.’

After a pause, he reflected on the impact of the potentially terror-related attacks, and others like it, on Americans.

‘It’s a good reminder of something that I’ve said over the last couple of weeks,’ Obama said, launching into a list of ordinary daily-life activities that are threatened in the absence of good police and intelligence work.

‘Our way of life, our freedoms,’ he said, ‘our ability to go about our business every day, raising our kids’ – and suddenly the president’s mood shifted.

‘And seeing them grow up and graduate from high school, and now about to leave their dad,’ he continued, waving his hand and breaking the tension as the room erupted in laughter.

‘I’m sorry. I’m getting a little too personal. Getting a little too personal there,’ he said.

Obama then returned to the gravity he had discarded just moments before.

‘That depends on law enforcement,’ he said. ‘It depends on the men and woman in uniform every single day, who are under some of the most adverse circumstances imaginable at times, making sure to keep us safe.’

Friday morning, about one hour before the Munich gunman opened fire on a street outside a McDonald’s restaurant, Obama said in a joint press conference with Mexico’s president that Republican nominee Donald Trump has overreacted by drawing attention to crime and terrorism in his campaign rhetoric.

Read on to hear his delusional view of the world

‘This idea that America is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn’t really jibe with the experience of most people,’ Obama said alongside President Enrique Pena Nieto.
‘I think it is important to be absolutely clear here,’ he added, unaware of the bloodshed about to begin an ocean away.
‘Some of the fears that were expressed throughout the week just don’t jibe with the facts.’
The area around the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre has been sealed off. An electrical shop nearby is being used as a makeshift hospital to treat the casualties.
It was reported that at least one gunman fled into the city’s underground mass transport system, which has now been shut down.
Germany’s passenger rail authority also confirmed that Munich’s main train station has been evacuated.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Friday in a statement that ‘our prayers are with all those affected by the horrible attacks in Munich. This cannot continue.’
‘The rise of terrorism threatens the way of life for all civilized people, and we must do everything in our power to keep it from our shores.’

Donald Trump needed to give the speech of his life. He did that, and much more

Acceptance Speech

Donald Trump’s RNC address could mark the start of an American revival

By Michael Goodwin July 21, 2016 | 11:35pm

Donald Trump needed to give the speech of his life. He did that, and much more. He laid out an inspiring American Manifesto for our troubled times.  And he did it his way.

Not surprisingly, from start to finish, it is muscular and bold, leavened only by appeals to racial harmony and pledges of compassion for all. It offers a prominent nod to Bernie Sanders’ supporters in a bid to get some to jump the Democratic ship.

Most important, it keeps faith with his campaign themes of putting forgotten Americans first. In contrasting his view with his opponent’s, the Republican nominee put it this way: “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo.”

And “I am your voice.”

And then this: “There can be no prosperity without law and order.”

On paper, the speech is powerful, and it was delivered with all the might Trump could muster. Passionate and occasionally strident, then mellow and playful, he revealed a full Trump Doctrine that weaves together what has often seemed random threads and instincts into a more coherent vision.

He would unleash America’s energy production, use trade deals to help blue-collar workers and fix the broken immigration system so that cheap labor doesn’t undercut wages and overwhelm our social safety net.

He would ensure public safety, rebuild the military and destroy global terrorism. And he forcefully and repeatedly cemented the image of the GOP as the pro-police party, a strong contrast with Democrats, who are recklessly becoming the anti-police party.

Trump laid out such a huge undertaking, sweeping in its goals and potential impacts, that achieving even half of it would lead to an economic revival and end the nation’s crisis of confidence. If he focused on just what he outlined last night, and he should, Trump would be a very busy man every minute for the next four years.

In that context, he addressed the inevitable sense that little change can come in a nation so polarized and gridlocked by reminding the raucous convention that he wasn’t even supposed to be standing before them. And in a line that captured his remarkable attack on the political status quo, he said, “The politicians have talked about this for years, but I’m going to do it.”

There is, at this point, no reason to believe he doesn’t mean every word of it. Whatever his past habits and lifestyle, whatever caricature he has been reduced to, the seriousness of his purpose is no longer in doubt. He is a man on a mission.

As befits an acceptance speech, the promises flowed like water, yet the important things stand out. This one, from his prepared remarks, was especially powerful: “On January 20th of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced.”

He was blistering on Hillary Clinton, saying her legacy as secretary of state was “death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.” Nor did he spare President Obama, accusing him of using “the pulpit of the presidency to divide us by race and color” and saying he “has made America a more dangerous environment for everyone.”

Trump then added: “This administration has failed America’s inner cities. It’s failed them on education. It’s failed them on jobs. It’s failed them on crime. It’s failed them at every level.”

The stirring speech saved what had been a mediocre convention, with sloppy mistakes leading to distracting controversies and fueling fears that Trump and his team still are not ready for prime time. Delegates were not so much divided as dispirited over the prospect that the party would once again lose a very winnable race.

Especially with the well-oiled and well-funded Clinton machine revving up its engines with attack ads and with her message amplified by the left-wing media echo chamber, Trumpsters suddenly faced an enthusiasm gap. Rows of empty seats in the Quicken Loans Arena seemed symbolic of sagging hopes.

A turning point might have come Wednesday night, during the booing of rival Ted Cruz for refusing to endorse Trump. What started with restlessness from the New York delegation quickly spread, and by the time he slinked off the stage, Cruz suffered a stunning and unanimous rebuke.

That rare moment of genuine unity, followed by Mike Pence’s workmanlike acceptance speech as the VP nominee, set the stage for the finale. Indeed, no matter what had come before, it was always going to be up to Trump himself. He’s the nominee and the whole venture rises or falls on his performance.

It now rises. He delivered a stemwinder for the ages.

If he wins, and can deliver on his vision, remember this speech. Like Ronald Reagan’s in 1976, Trump’s 2016 address could mark the start of a desperately needed American revival. As he said near the end, “America is back.”

Clinton invites families of blacks killed by police to speak at convention

Clinton invites families of blacks killed by police to speak at convention


Philadelphia’s police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers.

John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the planned choice of speakers at the convention, which opens Monday in Philadelphia.

“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows and other family members of police officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit and not implied racism,” Mr. McNesby said in a statement.


He said it’s “sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country.

Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself, if that is possible.”

The Clinton campaign has scheduled former President Bill Clinton to speak Tuesday night with members of Mothers of the Movement, a group that includes relatives of black men killed by police such as Eric Garner of New York and Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri.

Former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey, who said the nation is a “powder keg” over the police-involved shootings and assassinations of officers, is also scheduled to speak.

Clinton campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Formas told the CBS affiliate in Philadelphia, “As Hillary Clinton has said, we need to support heroic police officers who put their lives on the line every day as well as listen to the voices of mothers who have lost their children.

“We look forward to highlighting the courageous efforts of law enforcement with speakers at our convention, including from Pennsylvania, and praising their work to keep our communities safe.”

Most American Christians feel America is nearly out of time.  They are deeply frustrated because they believe we have wasted valuable time and resources on watered-down Christianity.  They see compromising the Gospel is a towering mistake.

Millions ask troubling questions.  Don’t we have the best message humanity has ever heard—and the best book ever written?   Don’t we have the Holy Spirit sent to give us power, strategy and wisdom to direct our operations?  Why have we put all of this down?   Why have we have accepted such sorry substitutes?

The frustration does not end there.  They want something anchored in truth and designed to tackle modern culture.  They seek an experience in the power and presence of God that fuels them with victory in everyday life.  They do not want merely survive and fight to hang on—they want to take territory held by the enemy.

It became clear to me that we needed something drastic.   I realized that teaching was everywhere but training was almost nowhere.   Experts in leadership excellence constantly emphasize training over teaching.  The reason is obvious.  In teaching you are asked to understand material.  In training, you must perform the material.   Training reduces fear.

The bottom line was, we needed something drastic.   So I went to prayer and I went to work.  I called on nearly 50 years of ministry experience.  I drenched it in prayer and study.   The result was THE WARRIORS WORKSHOP.   A new weapon from Mario Murillo Ministries, that answers the deepest frustrations of millions of believers.

The best way I can say it is this:  The object of military training is not to prepare men for war but to make them yearn for it.   The same is true of this workshop—it makes you yearn to reach out—heal the sick—and walk in total victory.

We just had our first workshop.  It was in Reno.  The results were startling.  Not only was the hall packed but the response was 100% positive.  It was everything we hoped for.  People were truly fired up!

Now comes our next one.  It is in Yuba City and it promises to be even more powerful.  If you live anywhere near Yuba City you must do all you can to register and be a part of this once in a life time event:  THE WARRIOR’S WORKSHOP.  The Workshop is free but you must register.  Group registrations accepted just tell us how many are in your group.
