HOPE FOR OUR BATTERED PRESIDENT

There is no disrespect intended in the title.  No one can deny he is being battered.  This is about why there is hope for our president.  But, true hope is anchored in truth.  There’ll be no Pollyanna pep rally here.  It looks bad, real bad. We begin by facing facts:

-We know that Obama and Hillary loyalists—deeply embedded in Washington—are working feverishly to destroy president Trump.  They are using their dark arts, not just on him, but on you.

-We know that a soulless media has discarded all pretense of objectivity.  They are minions of a mindless coup.  They are no longer capable of even thinking a decent thought toward Trump.

-We know that Trump is struggling to drain the swamp because some Republican Congressmen have stuck a hose back in it, recycling the swamp water.

-We know that Trump make-believers who once supported him abandoned ship at the first sign of trouble.

-We know that the forces behind Mueller and Comey will witch hunt Trump for concocted crimes and refuse to try Hillary for actual crimes.

-We also know that during this overthrow of freedom much of the Church naps under the influence of melatonin ministers.

And yet there is great hope for our president.  I am shouting this question in your ear: HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT POWERFUL FRIEND?

Once before evil rose, with its bloody talons on the throat of America, and relief came from an unexpected source: This plea from Benjamin Franklin:

In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard; and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in this struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend?

Here is our powerful friend: Prayer, real prayer, sincere prayer, fervent prayer, unceasing prayer.  Prayer will expose the lies.  Prayer will defeat the traps laid before Trump.  Prayer will shut the mouth of the lion, topple the Washington walls of Jericho, split the Red Sea of fake news, and raise the Lazarus church from the dead.

Our powerful friend is waiting to bring unimaginable help and shocking breakthroughs.

Can I reintroduce you to our powerful friend?  Consider these points:

1. Even if you are the only one praying, it can change everything.  “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  James 5:16

When Israel languished in Babylon under the lash of Nebuchadnezzar only Daniel engaged that powerful friend.  He set himself to pray and fast.  His prayer, his solitary prayer, moved Cyrus to fulfill the prophecy of Jeremiah and release the Jews after 70 years of slavery.

The angel told Daniel it was his prayer that did it.  Daniel 10:12 “Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.”

In the New Testament, one man’s prayer brought the Holy Spirit to the gentiles.  Acts 10: 1 “There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, 2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. 3 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, ‘Cornelius!’ 4 And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, ‘What is it, lord?’ So he said to him, ‘Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.'”

2. Even if you do not know how to ask, the Holy Spirit will pray through you.  Romans 8: 26, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Think of that!  We don’t know how to pray for this national disaster, but the Holy Spirit does.  Our prayer language carries untold power to interrupt, and alter the affairs of man.  He, the Holy Spirit carries all power and wisdom.  He possesses the precision of prayer that totally escapes us.  He will commandeer our requests to the very throne of God.

3. My final point is the most powerful and encouraging: God told us to pray for our leaders.  1 Timothy 2: 1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”

Why would we expend energy on worry when we can pray?  Why would we sit paralyzed watching the news instead of utilizing prayer to make news?  You, by yourself, have the power to ask and receive, why would you delay praying?  God told us that He is pleased when we pray for our leaders.  Isn’t that the most powerful motivation of all.  Remember our powerful friend.

THE BATTLE FOR AMERICA STARTS NOW

 

In a masterstroke of perverted genius, Satan has plunged America into chaos.  The interweaving of the lawless media—the anti-god Democratic party—the liberal university propaganda machine—the brainwashing film companies—the dysfunctional Republican Party, and last, but not least, Christianity Incorporated, are crushing the American Spirit.

It is a tapestry of travesty. 

If you thought the election of Donald Trump meant victory…think again.  Not only have we not won the war, we barely won a battle—the battle for America starts now.

Do not listen to any preacher who is doing a victory dance over America.

This is a moment of sober reflection not giddy, celebratory denial.  This is a time of deep soul searching— the emptying of self in the pursuit of divine guidance.

Remember the real victim in this war.  Remember who feels the greatest sense of betrayal.  It is middle Americans.  People who obey the rules, pay taxes and go to church to learn righteousness.

“Silly me”, they say.  “I elected you to repeal and replace Obamacare.  For 7 years you wrote bills to end it.  You get in power, and you do nothing!”

“How stupid am I”,they ask.  “I work three jobs to send my son to college and you melt his mind with self-pity, white guilt, no marketable skills, and a hatred for our faith.”

“Hey pastor”, they say. “I don’t go to church just to feel good—but to become good.”

Until now the war was surreal.  We had the luxury of couching it in hyper-spiritual terminology.  We got away with symbolic intercession.  We were fine with shadow boxing, prophetic flattery, and firing blanks.  But after today, this means war.

Let me be clear: this letter is not for everyone.  It is not for the worrier but the warrior. It is for a remnant.  It is for a holy core untiringly loyal to God.

It is a clarion call of hope.  With God, even the smallest group is the majority.  I don’t care who rejects this message.  I only care about the hearts who can declare without doubt…if God be for us, who can be against us?

How then do you begin to war for America? 

Begin by separating yourself.  The moment you realize you are an eagle in a farmyard full of turkeys…take off!  Swamp gas believers make being alone an improvement.

Once you are free of the toxic, social gravity of Christianity-lite, you will be reunited with forgotten treasures

You will recall your awesome God—a God worthy of total sacrifice—a God who made the weak strong, the confused clear, and common men and women legends.

You can start praying now as you have never prayed in the past.  “…You will not fast as you do this day, to make your voice heard on high.” -Isaiah 58:4. “…The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”-James 5:16

Remember why you are supporting and praying for our president.  Christians who jumped and the bandwagon during the election are bailing on him now.  Why?  They wanted the easy victory.  They didn’t want flak.

If you want to know why you should stand by Trump it’s easy—look at who hates him and why.   It’s not about Russia.  It’s not about his family.

They hate him because he stands with Israel.

They hate him because he is pro-life.

They hate him because he wants to close the border against those who would kill Americans. 

But, the final reason they hate him should embarrass us: They hate him because he stands with the church against her enemies.  Imagine that!  Believers refuse to defend him even as he is viciously attacked for defending us.

The battle for America starts now.  It starts with brave pastors who will transform safe pulpits into turrets of truth.

It starts with Senators and Representatives getting delivered of the need for self-preservation.

It starts with everyday believers like you and me—hearts set ablaze with a furnace of faith and love of country.

Yes, it is true that the battle has only started…but God has no even begun to fight.

MR PRESIDENT, JUST STOP TALKING TO THE PRESS

 

Take it from a preacher—you need to stop talking to the press.  They have sold themselves to toppling you.  They are as far from journalism as the east is from the west.
Consider this verse from the Bible the next time you are tempted to answer one of their stupid questions: “Do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest you also be like him. – Proverbs 26:4
I write this to you because I have heard from people I trust that you love Jesus.  I also believe you love America.  It’s as a brother that I write this.
You have more important things to do!  Media banalities throw you off your game.  They try to use your competitive nature against you.   Let me invoke some New York City wisdom: fuhgeddaboudit.
Just keep on making America great again.  The people that matter—the American people—will see the results and support you.
Mr. President, the same constitution which guarantees freedom of the press, guarantees freedom from the press—especially when it is no longer the press.
You already know this: North Eastern colleges spew out 89% of our “journalists”.  It was in these hallowed halls that accurate reporting was chloroformed.  Truth, accuracy, fairness and honesty were all sacrificed on the altar of “secular progressivism.”

In this cult, the global order must come no matter what the cost.  America must be diminished by open borders, the destruction of the family, and the eradication of our Judaeo/Christian values.  You, dear president, stand in the way of all of this.
I am trying to Mirandize you against the press: anything you do say, can and will be used against you.
Please read what Jesus said to understand the media: “Luke 7: 31 And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying:  ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep.’
33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’
Do you see the comparison?  The liberal media wanted James Comey fired.  Every Democratic leader called for his head.  Firing James Comey was noble and right…until you did it.
Until accurate reporting makes a comeback, nothing you say or do will be right.  Ignore them.

HOW TO PRAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW

An epic rebuke to CNN and Obama and Hillary: When asked to condemn Trump’s travel ban after we hit Assad’s airbase, a Syrian victim instead says, “Thank you President Trump!”  “you are all hypocrites. We don’t want to be refugees. For seven years, you did nothing!  Finally, Trump has punished Assad!”

HOW TO PRAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW

By Mario Murillo

An epic rebuke to CNN and Obama and Hillary: When asked to condemn Trump’s travel ban after we hit Assad’s airbase, a Syrian victim instead says, “Thank you President Trump!”  “You are all hypocrites. We don’t want to be refugees. For seven years, you did nothing!  Finally, Trump has punished Assad!”

In a moment only God could have orchestrated, President Trump has triumphed and the lies of the Obama years have been exposed.  In one fell swoop—and even as the prime minister of China was present—Our president told North Korea, Iran, Assad, Russian and the world that we are back and the free world has a leader.

Here is an amazing result:

“What we are seeing right now, in the wake of Donald Trump launching retaliatory airstrikes against Syria, is a rally-round-the-president effect.

As the media shift to war footing, the tone of the coverage has dramatically changed, from whether Trump is a bumbling leader to how decisive he was in responding to Bashir al-Assad’s horrifying chemical attack.

And the natural instinct to support the commander-in-chief when he orders military action is a good thing—as long as it doesn’t go too far.

Trump is benefiting from two factors. One is the stark contrast with Barack Obama, who declared a red line against Syria and failed to enforce it in 2013, settling instead for a deal on chemical weapons that obviously didn’t remove all of them from the country.

The other is Hillary Clinton, earlier in the day, saying that the U.S. should bomb Syrian airfields—thus making it harder to argue that no cruise missiles would have been launched if the election had gone the other way.” -Fox News

From out of nowhere a Syrian said what our entire government could not say.  “We do not want to be refugees.  We want safe zones here until we can get our nation back.”

Here is the common-sense solution to the Syrian crisis delivered like a Tomahawk missile into the fake news capitol of the world.

CNN’s unvarnished hatred for Trump will continuously set them up for these embarrassing backfires.

Once again, the left celebrated Trump’s demise too soon.  Once again it all boomerangs in their face.  God’s hand is strong on our Commander in Chief.  Today I am speaking Psalm 41: 10 and 11 over our president.  “But You, O Lord, be merciful to me, and raise me up, That I may repay them. 11 By this I know that You are well pleased with me, Because my enemy does not triumph over me.

How do we pray for President Trump?

-Pray for wisdom beyond human wisdom for him to know what to do next in a highly volatile and complicated world situation.

-Pray protection on him from his enemies in the media and traitors embedded in the deep state rogue government set up by Obama.

-Pray for his health, his emotions, his family and his staff to be protected.

While you are at it, pray for the leaders of the American Church to be convicted by the example of a brave and decisive leader so we will stop delaying revival with carnal and impotent church services.

 

 

 

Black Lives Matter Leader says White People are Defective, Muses about how to wipe them out

 She Tweeted: “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”  Black Lives Matter Leader says White People are Defective, Muses about how to wipe them out…

BY , POSTMEDIA NETWORK

TORONTO – A co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects” and purportedly mused about how the race could be “wiped out,” according to a post on what appears to be her Facebook page. Yusra Khogali has faced increased scrutiny over the past year after BLM Toronto gained political influence following their disruption of the Toronto Pride parade and confrontations with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

On Friday, Toronto Police announced they would not participate in this year’s upcoming parade. This has been a longstanding demand of BLM TO and one that the board of Pride Toronto recently backed in a controversial vote. Khogali has a track record of inflammatory, divisive rhetoric. Only last week during a protest in front of the US consulate Khogali shouted into a microphone that “Justin Trudeau is a white supremacist terrorist” and urged the crowd to “rise up and fight back.” “Look at us, we have the numbers,” she said.

She also faced controversy in the news for a tweet posted a year ago stating: “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”

While these remarks alarmed many Canadians, they pale in comparison to a statement numerous sources forwarded to the Sun that Khogali appears to have posted on Facebook in late 2015. “Whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme. “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” the post reads towards the end. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”

plz

Khogali did not respond to requests for comment from the Sun. But if she did in fact write the post, her thesis doesn’t pass muster for one of America’s leading scholars of the history of eugenics. “The document mirrors the racism of American eugenicists who claimed in the first third of the 20th century that native whites were genetically superior not only to blacks but also to immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe,” Daniel Kevles, a professor at Yale University, wrote to the Sun.

“Their claims were without any scientific foundation and added up to expressions of naked white racism.” Kevles’ book “In the Name of Eugenics: Genetics and the Uses of Human Heredity” is considered a leading text in the field. “The anger and frustration that animates the Black Lives Matter movement is altogether understandable, but the way to contest pseudo-science and white prejudice is not with an alternative pseudo-science and black prejudice,” notes Kevles. “It is with moral argument and political action.” The BLM TO website explains their stated goals are “to dismantle all forms of state-sanctioned oppression, violence and brutality committed against African, Caribbean, and Black cis, queer, trans, and disabled populations in Toronto.” There is no indication the group or any of its other members supports the sentiments expressed in the alarming post. The Sun did not hear back from BLM TO and the main Black Lives Matter umbrella group in the United States following various requests for comment. afurey@postmedia.com February 13, 2017

THE FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT JUST DIED WHERE IT BEGAN

The violent, mentally lazy thugs who rioted in Berkeley last night bear no resemblance to the famous protesters of the 1960’s and 70’s.  I know because I preached on the Berkeley campus from 1970 until 1980.

THE FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT JUST DIED WHERE IT BEGAN

By Mario Murillo

The violent, mentally lazy thugs who rioted in Berkeley last night bear no resemblance to the famous protesters of the 1960’s and 70’s.  I know because I preached on the Berkeley campus from 1970 until 1980.

milo

Not only do they not represent the free speech movement—last night, they embodied everything the protest movement hated most.   They did not take up the mantle of free speech—they dismantled it.

How ironic!  What a blasphemous, poetic end!   The free speech movement died where it began: in Berkeley…right where Mario Savio gave his famous and  impassioned speech against the machine.  (see video).

An autopsy will reveal the cause of death: terminal hypocrisy.  Protesting alleged hate speech with actual hate speech.  Condemning fascism by being fascist.  pauley-copy-copy

I once saw a cringe-worthy moment on American Idol.  Simon Cowell blasted a young singer because she had the gall to sing a Whitney Houston song.  He excoriated her for not only having a mediocre voice but for choosing a song that would automatically compare her to a legend.  That is what happened last night.

By staging their melt-down on the hallowed grounds of Sproul Plaza these squealing brats forced an automatic comparison to a real movement.

In case you were under a rock, here is what happened last night:  A speech by Milo Yiannopoulos was canceled by UC-Berkeley police as security failed. Yiannopoulos was evacuated from the area.

News of the rioting made cable news last night as students smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper sprayed innocent individuals, and set fires in the street. Others spray painted the words “Kill Trump” on storefronts.

“The left is profoundly antithetical to free speech these days, does not want to hear alternative points of view, and will do anything to shut it down,” Yiannopoulos told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in an interview on Wednesday night. “My point is being proven over and over and over again.”

Here are the glaring differences between these coddled punks and the protesters I knew in Berkeley:

 Substance:  Back then you heard speeches—speeches that made a case.   They could answer questions.   Today’s so-called left cannot answer questions.  They scream things they hear someone else say.  They make claims that they cannot back up.  If you ask them directly, for example, what does Milo say that is a lie?   They get a deer in the headlights expression.  Today’s campus snowflakes and agitators simply cannot bear to have their viewpoint challenged by facts.  Is it because they intuitively understand that they have no substance?

Free exchange of ideas:  Open mikes were common in Berkeley.  Sometimes wackos would speak but opposing views and open debate were respected. The protestors in Berkeley in the 70’s were often atheists who hated the Gospel.  Nevertheless, they defended my right to preach the Word of God.  Occasionally, I was attacked but my attackers were condemned by most leaders of the movement.

Assisted suicide:  The bottom line is that today’s rioters are killing themselves and their movement. However, it is an assisted suicide.  Older professors, mainline Democratic leaders, aging hippies and a toxic media could intervene but they won’t.   CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, The New York Times and The Washington Post have a vested interest in silencing opposing views…even if it means crippling the next generation’s ability to think logically.

Last night was nothing but hooliganism.  It had all the nobility of domestic violence.

In the video, you see Mario Savio railing against the machine.  He decried a University that simply would not allow opposing views.  Listen rioters, you are now the machine…worse yet, puppets of the machine.

University of California denounces the violence and violation of free speech

Campus condemns violence, defends free speech

UC Berkeley condemns in the strongest possible terms the actions of individuals who invaded the campus, infiltrated a crowd of peaceful students and used violent tactics to close down the event. We deeply regret that the violence unleashed by this group undermined the First Amendment rights of the speaker as well as those who came to lawfully assemble and protest his presence.

The university went to extraordinary lengths to facilitate planning and preparation for this event, working in close concert with the Berkeley College Republicans. Dozens of police officers were brought in from UC campuses across the state. Numerous crowd-control measures were put in place. But, we could not plan for the unprecedented. Last night the Berkeley campus was invaded by more than 100 armed individuals clad all in black who utilized paramilitary tactics to engage in violent, destructive behavior designed to shut the event down. At that point the University of California Police Department concluded that the speaker had to be evacuated from campus for his own safety, thereby bringing the event to an end.

For the campus police, the primary objective is always the safety and well-being of our students and the public. That is what informs their strategies and tactics. In that context we are relieved that, as of now, there have been no reports of serious injuries.

We are proud of our history and legacy as the home of the Free Speech Movement. While we have made clear our belief that the inflaming rhetoric and provocations of Mr. Yiannopoulos were in marked opposition to the basic values of the university, we respected his right to come to campus and speak once he was invited to do so by a legitimate student group. The violence last night was an attack on the fundamental values of the university, which stands for and helps to maintain and nurture open inquiry and an inclusive civil society, the bedrock of a genuinely democratic nation. We are now, and will remain in the future, completely committed to free speech as essential to our educational mission and a vital component of our identity at UC Berkeley.

 

 

 

 

 

CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

CNN has lost its sanity.  Doing a report about assassinating Trump and Pence so Obama can stay in power?  Are they trying to encourage someone to take the president elect’s life during the inauguration?  This segment by Wolf Blitzer has no rhyme nor reason.  What are they thinking?  The wheels have come off of this news network.  It is time for America to pass judgment on a wholly discredited fake news organization.  MM

CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

By Walter Todd Huston

As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.

On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.

Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.

wolf

The upshot was that in the case of both heads of state being killed, the Secretary of State would take over. Currently that man is Secretary of State John Kerry, But in case some objected because his office would also end as of noon on Inauguration Day, then it would be the Speaker of the House — Republican Paul Ryan — or even Obama’s Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon.

The report also noted that the designated survivor appointed by the Obama administration could also become president in the case of a disaster. So, in CNN’s analysis, most of the people who would take over in the worst-case scenario would keep the Obama administration in power, at least indirectly.

So while most of the country is looking to enjoy the day’s events and waiting expectantly to hear what our new president will have to say for his first address as our leader, CNN is wondering what will happen if he is assassinated.

Perhaps CNN is still stuck in anger, the second stage of grief.
