HATING TRUMP MORE THAN THE VIRUS

Nancy Pelosi held up relief for Americans until she got money for art. Then she turned around and likened President Trump to the Emperor Nero “fiddling while Rome burned”, something that historians believe never really happened. And her accusations are likewise, also made up. Her actual words were, “As the President fiddles, people are dying.” and “Don’t fiddle while people die, Mr. President.”

I will soon explain why that insane remark has gone unpunished.

Pelosi is also deflecting scrutiny away from the fact that it is the Democrat leadership who has acted with callous disregard toward the American people during this coronavirus pandemic. As with the made-up ‘Russia collusion’, and the Ukrainian ‘quid pro Joe’, once again, they are accusing Trump of the very things they are guilty of.

I need to make some points very clear. The first point is the madness of ‘not wanting to look racist’. Democrats both delayed action and fought needed action, because they ‘didn’t want to look racist’. This delirium of ‘wokeness,’ finally, is looking as crazy as it should have looked, all along.

This Covid-19 outbreak should have taught us the madness of open borders, forced diversity, and globalism. But, no: both Bernie and Biden wanted the borders to remain open. And, to this day, neither have advocated for closing them.

They attacked Trump for his travel ban on China, accusing him of racism and xenophobia. Not only this, but after the travel ban, both the health director of Democrat controlled New York City and mayor Bill Di Blasio encouraged people to go out to restaurants and gather in crowds! They especially defended going ahead with Chinese New Year celebrations, so they would ‘not look racist’. This helped spread the virus, and now New York is the hottest hotspot in the nation, with huge numbers infected.

The other point is about Trump hatred. The Left say anything they want against Trump without punishment. No slander is off limits—no question is too stupid, or loaded—no lie is too great, and no accusation too outlandish. Worst of all, no national crisis is too great to shut them up. As long as it is about Trump, it is allowed. And because the news media is in on this practice, journalism is dead in America. 

When it was reported that America was first in the world, leading it with the most cases of coronavirus, Hillary showed her hatred of both Trump and Americans when she tweeted, “Well, he promised, ‘America first’” That obscene remark was widely condemned. But notice how she has not apologized for it. That is because she knows she doesn’t have to, after all, the media will cover for her. Can you imagine that being said about anyone else but Trump?

We are in a national crisis. America historically has put aside partisan malice, and has always rallied behind the Commander in Chief.  Not this time. Hatred for Trump is so sociopathic that even obstructing the President’s efforts to save American lives is allowed. They dragged their feet because they hate him, then they accuse him of dragging his feet, because they hate him.

I am begging America today to see this evil. Ask yourself, “Am I just as guilty of hating Trump as these politicians and leftist journalists are? Is there such a thing as going too far?” “Can any nation survive this kind of hatred?”

But why do they hate him so? They hate him because he won. They hate his victory so much it blinds them to everything else including the pandemic. The idea that he won and keeps on winning dismays them.

That they want to attack him more than they want to attack the coronavirus should utterly outrage you. What else must they do before you realize they are not just Trump’s enemy…they are yours. May God grant us the will to rise to our sacred duty to defeat this virus. And may God grant us the resolve to remember in November who these people are and strip them of their power to hurt us again.

THE LIFE AND DEATH QUESTION

I remember when a wise man of God told me, “Answer the question that wasn’t asked.” Example: when Jesus told His disciples that Jerusalem would be utterly destroyed and not one stone would be left upon another, the disciples reacted by asking Him when this would happen. Instead, of answering that question, He answered the question they should have asked, “Take heed that you be not deceived.” The question they should have asked was, “What is the most important thing we should to be ready?”

What question should pastors and the American church be asking right now about the coronavirus?

700 preachers recently participated in a conference-call with Trump and Pence, yet none of them asked the one question they should have asked.

The twelve disciples wanted to know the date of the destruction of Jerusalem, so they could make arrangements. That was their deception. And most pastors just want to know the date when they can reopen their church. That is our deception.

So, what was the question these preachers should have asked the President?

What is that question? That question is, “Why haven’t we repented?”

When it comes to repentance, the American church’s message is as garbled and discombobulated as a Joe Biden speech.

Shame on those who dare to invoke 2 Chronicles 7:14, while blatantly violating the conditions of that sacred text!

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

God says, “My people who are called by My name.” But we are ashamed to be called by His name! Modern preaching made us ashamed of being called by His Name! Christian pastors and singers waffled in T.V. interviews about homosexuality, abortion, the existence of hell, and Jesus being the only way to God.  Denying Biblical truth is even worse that denying His name. Psalm 138:2 says “…For You have magnified Your word above all Your Name.”

Have we humbled ourselves? Many are giddy, many are making light of this pandemic, and others glibly assure us that ‘we will all get through this.’ It is only because the deaths that have occurred have not happened to anyone you personally know and love that you are able to view it from a distance and remain aloof. Because the level of intrusion and financial devastation hasn’t quite struck you personally, you can still act like a spectator.

We as believers are not sober. We are not praying for mercy. We are praying prayers that expose our immaturity, ignorance, and arrogance.

Have we turned from our wicked ways? Talk about arrogance!  Nothing is more arrogant than the way preachers hurdled right over the part about ‘turning from our wicked ways,’ and went straight to asking God to ‘heal our land.’

Social media overflows with singers and preachers who offer advice, devotions, and prophecies that downplay, and even belittle, repentance.

Even when we called a big-time fast, the focus was about stopping the virus, not repenting as a nation. We should be fasting with sorrow over the way ‘church incorporated’ has grieved the Holy Spirit. How we abolished soul-winning. How we created low-impact/high-maintenance converts who drain the church’s resources and produce nothing, instead of training warrior-disciples.

Keeping people calm is important. Inspiring people to make the best of this is important. But national repentance is life and death. Anyone who is guaranteeing you that it can’t get worse for America is deluded. Jesus told the crippled man He healed at the Pool of Bethesda in John 5:14b, “Behold, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.”

Funny, but those who need it the least are the ones who are interceding and repenting the most. They are letting the searchlight of God give them truth in the inward parts. For them there is a new day. Pastors who are in this company of saints will see glory rise upon their ministry. Protection, blessing and healing is reserved for this remnant. I can’t say it any more simply or clearly than Isaiah.

“Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with them, for what their hands have done shall be done to them.”    (Isaiah 3:10-11)

JUST TO STOP HIS REELECTION

Jesus compared the generation of men who hated Him, to children playing in the streets:

“But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, and saying:

‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance;
We mourned to you, but you did not lament.’

“For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold, a glutton and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’” (Matthew 11:16-20)

Jesus accused them of manipulating facts, because their attitude was: ‘We will tell you what is real. If you don’t eat or drink you have a demon. If you do, you are a glutton and a drunk. We are always right and you are always wrong.’

When the nation should be rallying together, setting aside politics, and backing the President, the hate- filled Left can’t help itself.  They want us to dance when they say dance and to mourn when they say mourn. Their knee-jerk reaction is to say Trump is wrong, no matter what he does. Perhaps there is no greater oxymoronic phrase than ‘leftist-logic’, but here goes.

The ‘Leftist logic’ of Comey and Mueller says: Russia manipulated an election with only 150 thousand dollars worth of Facebook ads, while Mike Bloomberg couldn’t do it with spending just under one billion dollars!

Now, for some even crazier ‘leftist logic’: According to Christina Wilkie, who writes for CNBC, “In just over a month, three pillars underpinning (Trump’s) argument for reelection have all collapsed”: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-crisis-trumps-argument-for-reelection-is-collapsing.html

Her first ‘pillar’:

“President Trump’s re-election campaign was designed under the premise that the economy would be strong through November, but that’s not true anymore.” -CW

Wow. When I read that, I thought, “How much of the loony-left-Kool-Aid must one drink in order to make such a statement, let alone publish it?” Wilkie apparently has a crystal ball, and can see into the future, all the way to November, and knows what the economy will be like then!

The Left never gives Trump credit for the economy. When it is doing great, they believe he has nothing to do with it. But if it goes bad—for any reason, even the most insane reason—it is his fault. They believe America will punish Trump for what the coronavirus alone did, and forget everything else he has done.

Sorry, Christina! But no fair-minded person can possibly blame Trump for coronavirus damage to the economy.  That is just plain nuts. There is a case to be made for blaming a former President, but we will get to that later. The worst part is what Wilkie is saying about Americans. She is degrading Americans by saying they are so unfair and ignorant that they would change their mind about Trump because coronavirus hit our economy.  If an asteroid hit the earth, Christina would blame Trump for it.

Second ‘pillar’:

“Trump also planned to make socialism a central focus of his attacks. But without Bernie Sanders to run against, this argument becomes a lot less potent.” – CW

This jaw-dropping claim makes it difficult to know where to begin.

At least, Bernie is able to frame and finish a sentence. And unlike Joe Biden, Bernie does not say things like, “150 million Americans died from gun violence since 2009” or, “We must re-elect Trump” or, “When I am elected in 2 years” or scream, “You’re full of s***!”

Christina is wrong. Socialism is still in play. Biden has already veered left and will take up the socialist mantra to try and win Bernie voters. In a debate with Bernie Sanders, Trump would have had to combat a true socialist and make the case for capitalism.  With Biden, all Trump has to do is let Joe talk about it.

There is no doubt that Biden is going to be the nominee, because when the Democrat clown car careened out of control, he was the only one who didn’t fly out. Not only that, but it doesn’t look like veering Left will work for Biden, because ‘Berners’ have said they are so angry, they would rather vote for Trump than Biden. We can only hope…

And thirdly, according to Christina:

“Trump campaigned on “draining the swamp” of big government. Now he wants Americans to trust in big government to fight coronavirus and save the economy.” –CW

Listen to that! If Trump didn’t bail out hard-working Americans, the Left would use it against him in the election. Now they want to use it against him that he did help them! Do you see how that works?

And finally, there’s the idea that Trump didn’t act on the coronavirus crisis soon enough. Really? The fact is that Trump started on the prevention of this virus when he was running for office in 2016. He told us China, not Russia, was the greatest threat. He told us that we were too dependent on China. He wanted to slam the door on their influence over us.

Here’s the Left again: “You didn’t act soon enough to stop the virus. And stop picking on China.” Again, do you see how that works?  They still want it both ways

 

Then they called Trump a racist for calling it the ‘Chinese Virus.’ How hypocritical is it for the Left to defend the most racist nation on earth by accusing Trump of being racist when he makes a totally scientific observation: The virus came from China. Many of the leftist news outlets were calling it the ‘China Virus’ months ago, and it was apparently ok then, and wasn’t racist—until Donald Trump started calling it that… See how it works?

It was Obama who defended China and expanded our reliance on China. The Obama administration is why we are at the mercy of China for our pharmaceutical and medical supplies. Want to know why we are short on tests and masks? Hello!

Biden is defending China right now!  China! The nation that got so mad at us for stating the obvious fact that this pandemic started there, that they threatened to kill Americans by cutting off medicine to us.

While America is trying to come together to fight a common enemy, the Left hates Trump too much to try and help him. Please, help him, by draining the swamp in November! Take back the House, make conservatives a strong majority in the Senate, turn blue States red, and re-elect the President that God gave us for just such a time as this!

 

The CaliforniaVirus

A caravan of trucks is making its way toward Chico, California. They are carrying everything needed for a full blown Tent crusade. Vessels of God from many parts of America and other nations are on a pilgrimage to Chico. This holy core of workers say Jesus told them to join Him on the frontlines of a hurting city. They took the flights others told them not to take. They told their bosses that winning the lost and healing the sick takes priority.

A friend is someone who walks in, when everyone else walks out. This holy core of workers is the best friend this or any city could ever have. We would never tell the police to skip their duty because of a virus. We would never tell a nurse or doctor to hide at home. We would never tell any first responder to take the day off because they might encounter risk. How can we say any less to a soldier of the Cross? How can we overrule them? If they say they have a mandate from God, who are you, or who am I, to tell them differently? All I ever say is, “Make sure it’s God, then act on it!”

That doesn’t mean we do not take the Coronavirus seriously, we do! We will not act recklessly, or break any law.  We are in compliance with state guidelines, and we will obey any civil authority when it comes to this crusade. However, we see another virus that is just as deadly.

The virus we are fighting in Chico and all along the Highway 99 corridor, is the CaliforniaVirus. It is deadly. Morally bankrupt intellectualism is why millions writhe in meaningless lives in this State. Meanwhile, their leaders in Sacramento heap more misery on them and then force them to pay for it. The grand experiment of California values has created America’s greatest human tragedy.

In Silicon Valley, workers who gave their lives for a company are being replaced by cheaper labor, and to add insult to injury, they are forced to train the people who are stealing their jobs. In Hollywood, vacuous and ignorant celebrities preach to us about the sacrifices we must make, while they live in obscene luxury.

Giddiness is a symptom of the CaliforniaVirus. It’s how a parent can grin and feel enlightened as a transgender man in a sexy sequined dress reads a story to their 5 year old. It’s how teachers can scold a first grader for calling a friend Johnny who has changed their name to Sally. This Virus redefines child abuse.

This infection of the mind and soul has caused them to come up with ideas like free needles for addicts, and AWOL methods of handling the homeless. (https://sites.google.com/a/coyotes.usd.edu/awolatusd/social-issues/homelessness)

It’s how San Francisco, the most beautiful city in America, has been transformed into a slum, covered in human and medical waste. The fever of CaliforniaVirus is how educators have ignored their children’s need to learn how to read and write, and instead, have indoctrinated them with leftist ideology and books about sexual positions. It is why more and more of our children are turning to suicide.

The Virus says that if a fetus makes it to full-term and is born alive, the mother can still have it killed. The Virus says we should leave our border open so the other virus can get in.”

Its final symptoms are denial and smugness. So what if crime is off the charts? So what if addiction is pandemic? So what if our kids won’t know how to make a living? Who cares if innocent citizens are murdered by those who have illegally invaded our nation? The Virus says, ‘Lift the restrictions on criminals, create a revolving door in our prisons and at the same time, remove the right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.’

The CaliforniaVirus will destroy more lives than any other virus. It drains joy, decency, and sanity from its victims. Let’s admit what this virus is…it is pure despair-inducing evil.

So: Why are we here in Chico?

Because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the cure for the CaliforniaVirus!

It restores dignity. It breaks the chains of addiction. It infuses a lost heart with unstoppable hope. It cleanses the past, empowers the present, and guarantees the future!

Jesus will be in the Tent curing the CaliforniaVirus. Our message is clear, and yes, we will be hated for its clarity.

Nothing can say it better than Acts 2:40, “(Peter) went on in this vein for a long time, urging them over and over, “Get out while you can; get out of this sick and stupid culture!” (The Message)

We are saying to the masses that are lying crushed beneath the weight of California’s moral turpitude—

COME TO JESUS AND BE SAVED AND HEALED!

Private hell

Vast swathes of the church still bring up his past.  A few who are wearing tinfoil hats call him a devil. Clueless preachers still won’t take a stand. He goes through hell every day protecting the American church and they repay him with indifference.

I am sure that he would make me take down this blog if he could. How I know that, is my business. He doesn’t want the church to know how our ingratitude hurts and baffles him. Obama silenced pastors and yet many pastors still love Obama. Meanwhile, Trump fought for and won free speech in the pulpit—free speech that is being used by many to castigate the very person who restored that right.

But no matter how much I am attacked for supporting him, I will not turn my back on President Trump.  Because of his policies, I have been able to win more souls and preach with greater freedom. The President is standing up for our ministry and he is standing up for you, as well.

You lefties need to save your strength.  Nothing you say is going to change my mind.

Now, I have a burning question for the church: Have you seen the chilling video of Lance Wallnau relating the prophetic warning Trump gave to Evangelical leaders?  Our President found out what the Democrats plan to do to Christians if they win the White House and retake the Senate.  He took the time to gather church leaders and to warn them.

The Left will go after the church with a vengeance because they think the church helped Trump.   Embarrassingly, that is a false accusation since the church at large really hasn’t done much to help him. Nothing like they could have. Now because of apathy, Trump’s hard won protections can be frittered away.  The President’s description of the Left’s hatred for the church and their plans for us is chilling.

Informed sources say, radicals will be bolder to assault conservatives and Christians.  Social media would tear off its mask and openly persecute the church.

Yeah, I’m angry!  Donald Trump and his family have endured excruciating suffering so that we could do something as simple and easy as voting and challenging other Christians from our pulpits to get out and vote. AND WE STILL CAN’T BRING OURSELVES TO DO SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT?

It is jaw-dropping how oblivious many believers are about this moment in time in which they are living.  Trump is a divine disruption—a merciful pause button to give the church a chance to keep America from going off the cliff of Socialism.  So far, most people in the church have done little to act on this mercy, let alone appreciate it!  But I thank God for my President!

And what has the church done to repay Trump for the silent, nameless agony he suffers daily on our behalf?  Many reward him with apathy, ingratitude, disrespect, slander, and abandonment.  My friend, we are about to pay an incalculable price if we don’t get a right view of this hour.

I am sorry to say this, but Satan has seduced many preachers who head personal empires and oversee independent kingdoms. At such a critical hour as this, they will still not come together in unity to speak to the nation with one voice.  Because they are protecting their own private little empires, they can’t afford to offend their congregation.  Little do they realize this: if the Left gets its way, they will have no empire to defend and no nation to pass on to their children.

You may ask: “Mario, is there any hope?”  Yes, there is! But we need God to apply the electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts.  We need holy rage, holy boldness.  We need to talk to every believer we know and tell them to wake up and vote and tell others that they need to vote.

I realize that it takes courage to support President Trump and to take a stand for our faith at this hour.  Just remember, right now it may be difficult, but if we lose in November, it will go from hard to impossible.

No one believes in miracles more than I do—and a miracle is exactly what we must have at this hour.  We need a miracle of repentance and boldness, but it all begins with our having a humble appreciation for this man whom God has placed in the White House.

There will never be a more important election than this one.  Your vote will never mean more than it does now.

Still can’t support Trump?

You’re a Christian who still can’t support Trump? Let me share this fact with you: The people who hate Trump also hate you. They hate your faith. They hate your Bible. They hate your values. They hate Israel. They hate the Constitution and truth be told, they hate America. They hate you even if you don’t support Trump. They will hate you after Trump is gone.

They hated these things all along, only you weren’t supposed to know. You were supposed to be introduced to their radical agenda on the installment plan. But now they are in a frenzy and are throwing their gradual timetable to the wind and rushing everything. They are rushing: drag queens into story hours, gender bending subject matter into grammar schools, radical abortion policies, gun control and censorship. So, what’s their hurry? They are in a rage—such a rage, that they will openly refuse to stand up for the National Anthem and even chant their hatred against the highest office in the land at baseball games.

Two things happened that blew their cover.  Obama failed and Trump succeeded. None of that was supposed to happen. This is because the true socialist believes the only reason socialism has always failed is because “real socialism” has never been tried correctly. Every time it fails, they regroup and try again. They refuse to see that Socialism has imploded because it is a terrible system responsible for killing 100 million people in the last 100 years.

When Obama’s socialism failed, they put Hillary forward, hoping she would do the job. Trump was not supposed to win. His victory destroyed their plans. His presidency enraged them so deeply, they flew into a rage and started saying everything out loud that they had tried to keep a secret. They were forced into springing their trap early.

Again, they didn’t just start hating you when Trump won. They have hated you all along. You just weren’t supposed to find out so soon. It wasn’t their first choice to start censoring blogs, books, and speakers, but after Trump blew their cover, he drove them into a frenzy. Now they are out of control, spewing venom like a spitting cobra on drugs. The demented members of the ‘party of death’ are breaking every rule of free speech and tolerance. And they must be stopped.

I am amazed at how many Christians still do not stand with Trump. I hear the strangest excuses every day. I am curious to know how Trump can ‘hurt their feelings,’ while at the same time the hatred for God, tyranny, lies, and outrageous lawlessness of the Left doesn’t seem to bother them.

We must never spiritualize cowardice. We must never be confused about our duty. Our duty is to stop evil. “For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one.”  And if there ever was a party of evil, it is the Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party.  God has placed Donald Trump in the Oval Office to be a wrecking ball, but he is not the one who is trying to wreck the church, Israel, freedom, marriage, or morality.

Believers who tell me they can’t support him whine, complain, and get holier-than-thou but never offer an alternative. Why? Because there is no alternative. When you tell me, “I am not going to vote for the lesser of two evils”, you are deflecting. Your non-vote is helping to assure that evil will prevail.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Not to vote for Trump empowers the people who hate you and your children. If they ever succeed in all their plans to change our precious land of the free into a socialist state, it is game-over for the last truly free country on earth. Stand up for liberty, pray for those in Washington, and vote for those who love America. We as believers can and must turn this nation back to God!

 

 

THE FLAWED LOGIC

Here is how Never-Trump Christians think: Fight Those Who Are Fighting For You and Aid Those Who Are Fighting Against You.

Want to see a blank stare?  Simply ask a Never-Trump Christian, “Who would you rather have as an alternative to President Trump? Give me a name. In the war that is being waged against every one of our freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of religion and everything we hold dear as a free nation—in the battle to protect the unborn, the family, and morality—who’s your candidate for President? No, I mean one who can actually win.”

Their struggle to come up with an answer begins with a blank stare. Then the wheels in their heads start spinning in vain as they search for the right response.  Finally, in their frustration, you will hear them spout a string of platitudes.  Like: “God’s answer to our mess can’t possibly be Trump, because he is a flawed human being.” And, what? Do you think the God-hating candidates on the left are saints? God has used several flawed leaders to bring about His will: Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus, for example.

Trump is a bizarre answer to our national calamity—I’ll give you that. But he is the answer. That’s why he turned the economy around. That’s why he has added conservatives to benches all across America: two Supreme Court Justices and 187 judges—and there are 18 more awaiting Senate approval.

Because he is the answer, he removed the gag order on preachers, moved to restore prayer in schools, and became the first President in history to address the March for Life Rally. Would Warren or Sanders do any of those things? If Hillary had won, do you think you would even recognize America right now?

As far back as I can remember, there have been a cluster of Christians who yearned for respectability among the secular academics. Instead of believing God’s word that says “He has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise,” they foolishly seek the approval of those the Bible truly calls fools. And what do they have to show for it?

Something has happened that should horrify you. 3 out 8 venues in England just banned Franklin Graham’s crusades. His crime? A Biblical view of marriage. The magistrates who banned him said: “we can no longer reconcile the balance between freedom of speech and the divisive impact this event is having in our city. We have informed the organisers of the event that the booking will no longer be fulfilled.”

We are praying for this situation. We are imploring everyone involved with these crusades to keep moving forward and not to let up!  We believe God for a miracle.

These three venues have, in essence, said that their values matter more than free speech.

Hear this! These venues did not ban Franklin Graham because of Donald Trump, but because of the Bible. How many of those believers in the U. K. do you think ever thought it would come to this?

Well, it is coming to this, in America, and not just through demon-driven leftists, but through ambivalent believers who refuse to find either the courage or the humility to accept the President God has given us.

President Trump has been raised up to stand as a firewall against the powers of darkness so that the church can rise up and be the church. And, what is at stake, my friends, is the future of America.
