The therapist walked to the blackboard and drew a horizontal straight line. He asked the patient “what does that make you think of?” “Sex,” he replied. Then the therapist drew a vertical straight line and asked again, “what does this make you think of?” Again, the patient answers, “sex.” Finally, the therapist draws a circle and asks, “okay what about now?” Once again, the answer was sex.
“I don’t need to go any further” said the therapist, “you’re obsessed with sex.” Incensed, the patient replies, “Me?” “You’re the one drawing all the dirty pictures!”
It was interesting how many thought I was drawing dirty pictures—claiming I said any Christian who disagrees with Trump hates him. I never said that.
It was equally remarkable to see how angry they got—how they took it so personally.
Some of the comments were hilarious. “I am a believer, I don’t hate him. Even though he is a pathological liar, and a wolf.” Other Christians cited the audio of Trump from 12 years ago as proof that he is evil. Not even considering he might have changed. Again, they add the disclaimer, “but I don’t hate him.”
But my favorite criticisms came from those who said:
-This is why young people won’t listen to us.
-The article is divisive to the Body of Christ.
-Stay out of politics. No politician or party can be used of God.
Thank God they’re wrong about young people. I hold nothing back and it just makes more of them show up. I give them direct appeals and they come to Jesus. It’s a canard to say youth don’t want to hear this.
What is divisive to one looks like God separating the sheep and the goats to another. A core of believers is rising that is finished with the lukewarm church. Lukewarm-ness is a good thing to be divided from.
If you think God can’t work through a political leader think again. If you think politics has no place in spiritual warfare think again. When the hard left took possession of the Democratic Party, the first thing they did was throw the church out.
Who changed traditional marriage? Who champions—not only abortion—late-term abortion? Who puts Christian bakers out of business? Who is ignores MS-13 because they are immigrants? Who espouses bans on prayer, conservative speakers on campus, confiscation of guns, makes “F—Trump! a mantra” a statement, one Democratic columnist said, “was worthy of the Pulitzer Prize.”
We have never faced such a hate-filled mob of media elites, Hollywood hypocrites, and God-hating extremists—hell-bent on crushing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America.
Stop living in the past. The day of civil discourse from the left is long gone. Journalism is dead.
I know saying this will make heads explode: but in all this madness of globalism, and George Soros-funded tyranny, Trump is a momentary reprieve from God—an imperfect vessel notwithstanding. He is a stop-gap buying time for the church to act. And it’s disastrous for the church to ignore it. If nothing else, he defeated Hillary Clinton.
Never mind the dinky stuff. Look at the policies and the laws he is undoing and the ones he prevents—laws and policies that would muzzle the church and will build a godless nation for your children and grandchildren. Trump is a firewall.
When you say that God can’t use politicians you are saying only the devil can.
God’s catalysts can come in strange packages…ranging from the bizarre, to the coarse. Samson, Saul of Tarsus, and even General Patton come to mind. Often, they offended sensibilities, barged in where others feared to go.
The devil has the American church groggy on the goodness of God without the needed balance of the holiness of God—holiness that leads to authority—authority to rise and tear down cultural strongholds of Satan through moral awakening.
Trumps is buying us time. Seizing the time? Well, that’s our job.
Dear Christian Save Yourself from the Democratic Party. Yes, you heard me right—get out while you can. The Democratic Party’s last shred of credibility died during Trump’s State of the Union address. While 75% of Americans approved of Trump’s speech, the scowling, aging waxworks of the DP’s leadership sat like barnacles on a corroding ship.
They could not even cheer for our military veterans. They frowned at the American Flag and the National Anthem. Their bitter faces found no compassion for a couple whose daughters were murdered by illegal alien members of the MS-13 gang.
Do a snap comparison.
The Republican platform: The Trump/Republican platform has created the lowest jobless rate for blacks in history. The Stock Market has set more records in less time than ever. Trump’s tax break has Disney, Home Depot, and many other corporations giving out thousand dollar bonuses to entire work forces. (Nancy Pelosi called this crumbs.)
Money is coming back to America from overseas just as Trump predicted. Even at the hostile World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland, European companies said they would invest in America.
The Democratic Platform: Hate Trump.
(Oh yeah…and hate Christians). They are deranged to the point of thinking, speaking, breathing, and spewing nothing but Trump hate.
Their breathtaking arrogance alone, should make you abandon them—like nuclear waste! They take their base completely for granted. They live in an alternate reality. They believe they can say or do anything and their base will blindly follow them.
If you are a believer get out. You should get out because they told you to get out. They pulled the welcome mat out from under you, years ago. Democrats have screamed WE DON’T WANT YOU at Christians for decades. They deem the Bible to be a hateful, obsolete tome. They find everything you believe to be racist, sexist, homophobic, and every other phobia.
A Christian Democrat in California makes as much sense as a screen door on a submarine. The Democratic Party is the reason Christians are fired in Silicon Valley for sharing their faith. Sacramento is a seething nest of anti-Christian sentiment.
Whatever pulse of decency they had as a national party stopped last night in that hallowed hall. Their deranged hearts and minds were on full display for the world to see: they hate everything you hold dear.
For the love of God—and, I mean that literally—save yourself.
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.
Right now, the media, universities, and the Democratic Party’s credibility is imploding. They yearn to blame Trump. The truth is, they are doing it to themselves. Tragically, they are basking in their self-inflicted wounds.
Don’t blame Trump. You are doing this to yourselves.
By Mario Murillo
Right now, the media, universities, and the Democratic Party’s credibility is imploding. The press is crying foul. They claim the president’s attacks erode democracy. The truth is, they are doing it to themselves. Tragically, they are not only missing the point, they are basking in their self-inflicted wounds.
Secular progressives from all of these institutions have gone off the rails. Old Democratic Party leftists will not even consider self-examination. They are the aging actress still trying to get free meals off her looks. The damage is now clear! Unable to take anymore, many mainstream liberals are quietly excusing themselves …quietly because of the left’s slander-terror campaign against any liberal who openly disagrees.
The exasperating—over-the-top—leftist behavior has given the base combat fatigue. Not to mention the fact they look and sound just plain loony. The new radical left is trapped in a twilight zone. They are too big to be an insane asylum and too small to be a national movement. They are merely an elite, out of touch group of bullies who—for the moment at least—hold the microphone.
It’s a fact of life: the public will hold you accountable even when you don’t hold yourself accountable.
It’s a fact of life: silencing people does not convert them.
The Trump excuse has worn thin and now the left must pay the piper. They told the lies. They colluded to elect Hillary Clinton. They own the narrative that is spewing venom. They are the ones who look unhinged.
Here’s an all points left wing loon bulletin:
The University of Michigan has banned whiteboards in the dorms to cut down on hurtful words.
From the Devolving, Democratic Congress: Maxine Waters calls the entire Trump Cabinet “scumbags.”
From the fading CNN Bunker: A father asks Chris Cuomo, “what if my twelve-year-old daughter doesn’t want to see male genitalia in the girl’s locker room?” His answer, “her overprotective father should teach her tolerance.”
A terror group in the Bay Area who call themselves By Any Means Necessary say that they break windows, set buildings on fire and beat people to silence speakers on campus. Oh, and not on just any campus but Sproul Plaza at Cal Berkeley: the birthplace of the free speech movement. They said, “Our violence is an act of self-defense.”
When you scream that the enemy is white male Christians—when you use violence to stop free speech—when you say gender is not scientific—you not only sound crazy, but you show the public that the real racism, sexism, and hate is coming from.
You are driving folks to conservatism. You are the early committee to reelect Trump. You are alienating America. A part of me doesn’t want to tell you this. Napoleon said, “never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake.”
“A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power.
OBAMA OPERATIVE HINTS AT MILITARY COUP
“A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power. In an editorial penned for Foreign Policy, senior Pentagon policy official Rosa Brooks publicly suggested a military insurrection against the Trump administration may be the only option to oust one of the most divisive presidents in American history.
“Donald Trump’s first week as president has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared,” Ms. Brooks wrote. “[One] possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”
For the first time in her career in public service, including three years as senior counselor to the Pentagon’s policy chief from 2009 to 2011, “I can imagine plausible scenarios in which senior military officials might simply tell the president: ‘No, sir. We’re not doing that.’” -Carlo Muñoz – The Washington Times – Thursday, February 2, 2017
In my vigilant effort to keep you informed—not with hysteria or extremism but facts—I submit this crucial information to you. We are witnessing a joint effort by the left to overrule your vote and topple our government.
The riots are not by accident. The incessant railings from Movie Stars, Pop Stars are scripted for maximum impact. We are watching a concerted effort to take down of the Constitution of the United States.
Anarchy is a part of the plan. Democrats staying away from committee meetings to stop Trump appointments is part of the plan. Placing operatives to leak information from the White House are a part of the plan.
Even the Super Bowl is not safe…Lady Gaga will use her half time performance at the Super Bowl to rail against our values, against you, me, and our newly elected president.
Look for rioters to take to the streets—burning and looting their way across America—with the tacit approval of the Democratic Party. In the name of equality, they will go after our rights. In the name of justice, they will practice total lawlessness.
How poignant is it that the rioters in Berkeley who snuffed out free speech were holding signs that said “Hate free Zone?” They also did something prophetic: They screamed against fascism by practicing fascism. No one can verify the origin of this statement but it certainly fits the current situation: “The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists.” (For some reason the left truly hates that quote and tries to call it right wing extremism).
The left understands that if the Supreme Court is balanced by Conservatives, the left will lose power for at least a generation. Their goal is clear: Discredit Trump and force their way to power.
If ever you prayed for our president, pray for him now. Think of this…there have been 12,000 tweets in the last 24 hours calling for his assassination. How is that possible without advance planning?
What I am about to say will never appear in a Christian Magazine. You will never hear this in a mega Church pulpit. I will—once again—be accused of abandoning my calling. Many leaders will totally shy away from the words I am about to speak:
THE AMERICAN CHURCH HAS BEEN CALLED OUT AND SHE FALLING BACK ASLEEP. It has only been days since God granted a reprieve from certain destruction and already pastors have fallen back into passivity and lukewarm ministry. Never forget, it was the people in the pew that put Trump in office. This movement was not led by a majority of pastors. Most sat it out and only complimented Trump only after they saw the ground swell of support. Now that the heat is on, they are scurrying back to their safe place.
We are faced with the greatest threat to freedom of our lifetime. How will we explain to our children and grandchildren—who will live under this tyranny—that we did nothing?
So, who am I to say anything? I am not the famous leader of a denomination or a Christian movement. I am just a simple man with a simple voice.
Unlike some of your favorites, I am a preacher beholden to no one but Jesus. I do not have the clout of others, but I do have the courage. It is time for Christian leaders to condemn this anarchy with one voice. It is time for true awakening. It is time for reformation. It is time for the Word of God to be loudly and majestically declared to a sick and confused generation.
No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy. Nothing says colossal failure more than this…
Legacy? What Legacy?
By Mario Murillo
At this moment, Obama is drafting his legacy for a farewell speech in Chicago on January 10th. No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy. Nothing says colossal failure more than this.
The greatest travesty is to say he has a legacy. For our own sanity as a nation we dare not confuse lunacy and legacy. You cannot find—with an electron microscope—anything Obama improved after 8 years of holding all the cards.
We must have an autopsy on his presidency or we are doomed to repeat this towering mistake again.
His impending— “I don’t care what anybody says, I did a good job”—tirade in Chicago will be a cringe-worthy act of self- delusion. Far from exalting him, it will cement his status as worst President ever.
How badly did he govern? Consider what he had going for him: He was swaddled in the thickest layers of spin ever accorded an American President. Look who protected him! He had the media in his corner—mainstream journalists outdid each other to lie for him.
He had Hollywood in his pocket—movie stars sacrificed at his altar. Social media giants Facebook, Twitter, Google unambiguously propagandized and censored. Universities taught Obamanetics.
We have had eight years of the most meticulously choreographed suspension of reality that America has ever seen.
Alas, as a testament to his ginormous ineptitude, even this flotilla of revisionism and spin could not keep the bodies from floating to the surface.
At this hour, a pathetic string of panic moves confirms the impending horror. His remaining toadies work to discredit Donald Trump. No outgoing president has ever tried to discredit the incoming president even before they took office. Obama blurts out how he would have beaten Trump. He has become Norma Desmond descending the staircase in the final scene of Sunset Boulevard.
Let’s take one final look at what he did to us.
- He paralyzed the economy: The expansion that began in June 2009 has been the weakest since World War II, with real gross domestic product growth averaging 2.1%. At 7 1/2 years and counting, it is also among the longest on record. 98 million Americans are out of the workforce. Millions more live below the poverty level.
He strangled small business with regulations. He fought harder to put men in women’s restrooms than he did to put money in your pocket.
The greatest testament to his failure in the economy was the immediate reaction of the Stock Market and business when Donald Trump won. Economic pundit Caroline Baum said, “New signs of optimism emerged immediately following Trump’s Nov. 8 election. The stock market has been positively buoyant while consumer, business and home-builder confidence have all soared. Surveys suggest businesses are planning to increase capital spending. That sense of optimism will need to be ratified by results, but the message to Obama is unmistakable: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
- He nearly destroyed the Democratic Party. “In the eight years since he was first elected, Democrats have lost more than 1,000 seats at the state and national level. Republicans now control 4,170 state legislative seats compared with 3,129 for the Democrats, an all-time low.
Republicans now hold 33 governorships and will have full control — governorship and both houses of the state legislature — in 25 states compared with five for the Democrats.
Democrats lost 12 governorships, 13 Senate seats and 69 seats in the House of Representatives during Obama’s two terms, highlighting “a devastation up and down the party across the nation,” -The Hill.
- He looked like a clown to our enemies. Obama claims he told Russian President Vladimir Putin in China in September, to “cut it out” in terms of the hacking. Putin’s reaction embodies the world’s view of Obama. Putin thought it was a joke.
Mr. President, at first, the world saw you as a promise. Then they were amused. Now they are dazed and confused by you. Your eight years of leading from behind and issuing empty threats stripped America of moral authority and turned our foreign policy into sputtering wreckage.
Again, Caroline Baum said, “The wars Obama inherited are still going on. The Taliban has made a comeback in Afghanistan. Syria is in shambles. And Secretary of State John Kerry has been so ineffective that no one even bothered to invite him to the Syrian cease-fire negotiations among Russia, Turkey and Iran.
- He stabbed Israel in the back. Obama overruled 36 years of U.S. policy by abandoning its ally Israel and allowing the passage of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2234, declaring Israeli settlements, including the Western Wall and Temple Mount in East Jerusalem, illegal. He did it out of hatred for Israel.
- He made race relations worse. He stood in front of the Greek columns in Denver and promised to make race relations better. 56% say he made them worse.
Before he had the facts, Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police officers of acting “stupidly” when they arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his own home in 2009. The police were responding to a report of a potential burglary, which turned out to be Gates trying to pry open his front door.
Blacks and Whites took sides and the racial divide began. On his watch cops were killed out of racial hatred. Rioting, looting and burning down businesses were justified to protest. Obama offered only mild rebukes. He led the Democratic Party down the destructive path of race baiting.
Obama has promoted the idea of a police force biased against blacks. He vehemently denied FBI Director James Comey’s explanation for the surge in violent crime and homicide rates last year as a result of the “Ferguson effect,” with law-enforcement officers pulling back from proactive policing following the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
Obama says police are out to target blacks but totally ignores black on black violence. Chicago, Obama’s hometown, witnessed 762 homicides last year, the most in two decades, and 1,100 more shootings than in 2015. Obama refuses to accept the fact that police are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than white ones.
- Obama will not say Radical Islamic Terrorism no matter what. Once more let me quote Caroline Baum: “Obama has spent eight years deftly avoiding using those three words to call an act what it is. He has intellectualized his position by claiming the phrase “equates Islam with terrorism,” which is counterproductive to U.S. counterterrorism efforts.
Instead, Obama prefers terms such as “workplace violence,” even if the terrorists in question pay homage to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State. A terrorist act provides an opportunity for the president to lecture the nation on the need for stricter gun-control laws.
Calling something what it is may not solve the problem, but avoiding it makes Obama look silly.”
Some of you may wonder why I have skipped other scandals like Benghazi, Solyndra, Fast and Furious and illegals who killed American. Frankly, there is no room here for all his failings.
Legacy? What legacy? Pilate wondered about Jesus’ mission and legacy. He asked Jesus about it. Jesus said, “ask those who saw my works and heard my teaching.”
Hardly anyone is left who can—with a straight face and a strong stomach—say something about Obama’s words, acts and legacy. Obama is left to do it himself.
