TIME TO GET DEADLY SERIOUS

Take a look at him—Joe Biden. Then I want to turn around, with everything within me, and look the most ardent Biden-supporter in the eye and demand an honest answer to these questions: Does he inspire you? Do you see him as a great leader? Does Joe Biden make you swell with pride over the grandiose plans he has to turn America around? Do you trust him?

What heroic, no wait, what just plain meaningful thing has he accomplished that tells you he can do the job? Something? Just anything? Or isn’t it a fact that you can name ten people on your block who would make a better President?

Have we ever seen so many people work so hard for someone for whom they feel zero excitement? There is no rallying around Biden. There are no cheers when he speaks. If he didn’t have the occasional gaffe to break the monotony, listening to his speeches would be the equivalent of watching paint dry. 

Lest you believe I have forsaken my faith, please, please, understand that nothing I have just written is written out of rancor or with the intention of being insulting. It is written just to state the facts.

Joe Biden himself is the greatest proof that there was fraud. How else can you wrap your mind around the idea that he was America’s choice? I submit to you that even the most hardcore Biden follower, after taking a second look at the man, nurses a guilty suspicion about how the votes were counted.

I am sure I have offended leftists, as well as some gentle souls in church. But again, nothing is being written out of anger or malice. In fact, more than once I have stated that someone needed to have compassion on Mr. Biden, and set him free.

But he is as much a prisoner as America is now. The machine that created him—with parts imported from China, picked him, promoted him, elected him, and will soon discard him.

Why am I telling you all this? Because I need to tell you some things that are not comfortable, so that we can move on to a national miracle.

I am still clinging tightly to a miracle. I am still believing that the fraud election will be flipped on its ear. But, if by some freak accident, the truth of what happened November 3rd is not repudiated, you will see something far more hideous than a bad administration.

How bad?  As I have tried to tell you so often, before there can be a great awakening, there must be a rude awakening. Here is the rude awakening:

Joe Biden may be President of something, but it is certainly not America. That is because the Democrats have formed their own nation. Let me be clear: we have not seceded from the United States, they have. They left us, we did not leave them. Look at the following facts:

-What their comrades in social media call ‘fact checking’ is actually state control of information.

– Those made-up laws that Democrat governors and mayors call safety measures are actually death measures for small businesses and churches.

-The emphatic rejection of any kind of investigation of voter fraud is coming from outside the United States. It is totally un-American. Certainly, if Biden was a man of honor, he would champion an investigation so that there would be no cloud over his presidency.

I could cite a hundred more features of tyranny that are now a part of our everyday life. The point I want to make, is that none of this could happen in a real America. Therefore, we must realize they have started their own country.

We have to take in that entire ugly picture. Unless we do, we will not have the requisite outrage and perseverance necessary to free our nation from these villains.

Now we come to the great awakening. Here’s what we must do:

We must demand an honest and thorough investigation of voter fraud. This must become a national movement. That investigation must happen, and we must determine that we will never cease fighting for it to happen. We must demand that all evidence be presented. We must approach it with the same ardor as those who opposed slavery had. We must have the same hatred for this fraud perpetrated on the American people as we have for the murder of the unborn.

It must be in our hearts and on our lips. It must be preached from our pulpits and heralded by every civic, business, and legal leader who loves America. It must be the war cry coming from all 7 mountains and every profession. MAGA country must become voter integrity country.

If I sound extreme, it is because you do not realize that all of our freedoms are dependent on free and fair elections. Remove that, and you have removed government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Anyone who is okay with ignoring the compelling evidence, is part of the tyranny.

We must put pressure on Republican leaders to reject the certification of the Electoral College. In fact, I see a judgment coming, not only on the Left for hating God and our Christian heritage—I see a judgment on Republicans who knowingly capitulate to this illegal seizure of our Constitutional rights. On January 6, in the chambers of Congress, will come the final chance for Republican leaders to do their duty.

We must pray and preach national repentance with a renewed fire and zeal. This victory is not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord. Any church—no matter where they meet—that sheds fear and declares God’s Word with fervor, will see the weapons of heaven released in their people and their overflow crowds.

The zeal of God to perform a national miracle is so great that if we open ourselves to the anointing, we will see astounding miracles of healing and deliverance. God is no respecter of persons. He will grant irresistible words, undeniable miracles, and a towering presence of His Glory in any gathering and in any ministry that will declare itself a sacrificial army in the cause of saving America!

THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS STANDING AT THE RED SEA

While millions were watching on their TVs and devices, the host asked me, “What moment are we at in this country?” I answered, “The American church is at the Red Sea.”

Much of the American church believes this is a time of fear, despair, and profound disappointment. It is a time of dreadful uncertainty. It seems that the promises given to us by preachers have popped like so many balloons. Many regret standing with Trump. Others are abandoning their convictions in order to please a fallen culture. Still others are stunned and confused by the bizarre events unfolding every day.

Divisions spread like earthquake faults. Many are pointing fingers. It would seem that we need someone to arise and bring us a soothing balm. Someone to console us. But the fact is, we need a swift kick.

The Israelites were backed up against an impenetrable sea. A vast army, blind with revenge, was bearing down on them.  Were they right to fear and be dismayed? Were they right to rail against Moses and remind him that they never wanted this adventure? “Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness” (Exodus 14:12).

Isn’t this what we are hearing right now? Some are saying, “It’s better for us to serve Biden than to hold on to this embarrassing hope.”

Moses tried to rally the people: “And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”” (Exodus 14:13-14).

But God found fault with Moses’ behavior. It was not a time to console, but to command: “And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward”” (vs. 15).

Why is God taking a harsh tone with Moses? It is because their fear made no sense. It is because their statement that slavery was better, is blasphemy.

These people had witnessed 9 astounding miracles in Egypt. The simple progression of God’s acts should have been more than enough proof that another miracle was inevitable.

Do you mean to tell me you have forgotten the progression of miracles that have brought us to this point? Cyrus came to the White House. The collusion attack failed. The Obama-led FBI failed to run Trump out of office. The economy boomed despite the attempts of every Democrat, every media, and Big Tech undermining him. Victory upon victory led us to a golden age for the middle class and the church. And what? God has abandoned us now? Why would that be?

Now we are at the Red Sea. And, just as the Israelites should have expected a miracle, so should we.

The uncovering of the vast corruption, evil and manipulation perpetrated by Biden and the Democrat-controlled States, would never have happened unless God was behind it. The Lord revealed a threat to our freedom that was lodged in our foundation like a time bomb.

Wake up, Church! This is a test. The images of dread and fear are a test. The feeling that immorality will swallow our nation whole is a test. The draining depression brought on by the election is a test.

Think back to the time when King Jehoshaphat turned a hopeless situation into proof that a miracle was coming. Read carefully what he said: “And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them; here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You” (2 Chronicles 20: 10-12). 

Let’s look at the lessons in these words for us right now. Jehoshaphat reminded God: A great army is coming to take away something You gave us. Then the king reminded the enemy: How is that going to work? Do you really want to mess with land that God gave to us Jews?

In the same way, America is a miracle. We did not come about by our own wits or our own greatness. Do you believe that voting machines from Venezuela or China are going to dislodge the home of the brave and the land of the free without God stepping in?

Next, the king said to Jehovah, “Will You not judge them?” Great evil will not go unpunished. Of course not!

Finally, Jehoshaphat said to God, “We have no wisdom for this and we have no might against them, but we are looking to You.” Similarly, this is also a test! God wants the glory. God will bring this wickedness down by His own hand.

We found out that too many American Christians are flat out wimps. Wimpy worship, wimpy convictions, wimpy prayers, and wimpy loyalty to God. But the remnant found out something different.

Their hope is in God and nothing else. They are ready to obey their marching orders. Preachers should not be cowards and traitors. They need to tell the people to move forward. We should be outraged that our election was stolen and our votes were nullified. Don’t you get it? We are not Venezuela—we are America!

We should be moving forward. We should not be debating how much we can do—we should be doing all we can. Get rid of that lie that we should appear polite and compliant in the face of this vile coup. We need to file every lawsuit necessary to expose every villain involved in this crime—even if they are Republicans.

It is not wrong to reject Biden. It is not wrong to exhaust every legal option. It is not wrong to make all the noise we need to make in order to take down this monster. God wants to open the Red Sea before us. He just wants us to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and move forward into our miracle!

This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America.

AMERICA, IT’S NOW OR NEVER

warns

 

The Holy Spirit warns,”America, It’s now or never.

By Mario Murillo

 

Sin is one thing…but sin that is designed to provoke God is quite another.  Our leaders are now shaking their fist at God.  Our decadence is now a frenzied decadence.  At home and abroad our elected officials are hard selling immorality and false Gods.  The left is using Hollywood and the media to punish the righteous.   We have taunted God to the point that we are now seeing the result in our daily life.

The Holy Spirit–through many vessels is declaring a dire warning: “America, it’s now or never!”

Bloomberg news made this chilling statement today: “No President can save the American Economy.”    Hillary Clinton said yesterday that the leaders of the world are sternly warning America who not to vote for in our presidential election.  Universities and the media are siding with rioters and looters against the police causing a spike in crime, the lowest morale among cops in our history, and—worst of all—an end to free speech.  78% of all Americans are using or abusing prescription drugs making us the most addicted Americans in history.  No living American has seen our nation in such a terrible conditionBut that fact is but the tip of the iceberg.

America has been beaten into submission.  We are now—in the eyes of the world—a client state that must fall into line.  Until now, no nation would dare to intimidate our elections.   Billionaire George Soros openly announces he will finance demonstrations and riots.   Until now, no one could do that without being prosecuted.  Our drug addled state makes us easy prey for mass manipulation and foreign invasion.  Until now, no country in a pandemic of drugs would decriminalize even more drugs.  If America was a patient, the doctor would deliver a terrifying tale of multiple terminal conditions.   The only question left: which disease will deliver the fatal blow?  Is there any hope left for America?

IT IS NOW OR NEVER FOR AMERICA: embracing the reality of that statement is our major hope.  Whatever we are going to do—we must do now.  Don’t delude yourself into thinking we have more time.   You deceive yourself at your own peril.    Those who handle warnings carelessly, will almost certainly be fatalities in the maelstrom.

In the midst of these great horrors we are still a divided church.  This is the most jaw dropping fact of all: U.S. Christians refuse to unify.   Everything is at stake—how is this possible?  What decadent arrogance allows Christian leaders to keep building empires?  Why do they steadfastly refuse to join their brothers and sisters in the struggle to save the nation?   How can they ignore the deafening air raid siren?  What will they do if the church is driven underground and their little kingdoms are gone in an instant?

GOD SEEKS A CORE.  What has happened to America and the church is dreadful.   But just as dreadful as these things are that is how wonderful it is to know that all God needs is a core.   1 Samuel 14: 6 says, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.”

Martin Luther said, “One with God is a majority.”  Gideon proved this.  When all of Israel was dulled by immorality, and failed to rally to the cause, God honed 300 men to save the nation.  God seeks a core that will not hold back in prayer, action and sacrifice.  He seeks you.

You and I can’t wait for the church to wake up.  No pastor should stall revival in committee.  No soldier of Jesus should look for the right amount of support or a consensus.  There is nothing—and no one to wait for.

The Bible and Church history have taught one undeniable fact:  One person full of fire will ignite a generation to watch them burn.   Satan has made a mistake and we must make him pay for that mistake.   Satan plunged America so quickly and forcefully into dark perversion that he has nauseated them with wickedness.

The anger you see in the election is not political…it is rooted in their spirits.  They are sick to death of the lies of our culture.  They feel outrage at the betrayal of our leaders.  If we seize this moment—if we go full bore—if we abandon ourselves to outreach—we will see the greatest harvest in 40 years.

However, this door will close and this priceless moment will pass into the night where no man can work.  Since it is now or never…whatever we are going to do for Christ in America must be done now.  I place before you—my beloved partner—a do or die situation and I am praying with all of my heart that you will heed the urgent call of God in what I know will be our finest hour.

BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS FLOCKING TO TRUMP

Poll: Evangelicals flocking to Trump
By NICK GASS 01/26/16 06:06 AM EST

Donald Trump’s outreach to Christians is bearing fruit, if results of the NBC News/Survey Monkey weekly online tracking poll out Tuesday are any indication.

Among white evangelical Republican voters nationally, Trump earned the support of 37 percent, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, whose father is a pastor and has played a key role in recruiting faith leaders to support his son, is at 20 percent. In the same survey conducted the previous week, Cruz registered 9 percentage points higher. Below the top two contenders, Ben Carson earned 11 percent among evangelicals, and Marco Rubio took 10 percent.

The Manhattan business mogul, who is Presbyterian, made headlines throughout the course of the past week for his various interactions with fellow Christians, including a stop at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, last Monday. Delivering the weekly convocation address, Trump caused a stir when he made reference to a book in the Bible a “Two Corinthians,” rather than the usual nomenclature, “Second Corinthians.” (Trump later claimed that it was written that way in his notes, and besides, his mother was Scottish and would have said it that way.)

Trump also attended a Presbyterian service in Muscatine, Iowa, on Sunday, at which the pastor made reference to the ongoing immigration crisis, a central plank in the Republican’s campaign, and humility, in general. “I don’t know if that was aimed at me,” Trump said later.

The poll’s overall week-to-week standings show little shift with Trump leading the field at 39 percent, Cruz at 17 percent and Rubio at 10 percent. No other candidate received double-digit support.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton’s advantage remained in double digits, at 51 percent to Bernie Sanders’ 37 percent.

The poll was conducted online from Jan. 18 to 24, surveying a national sample of 9,690 adults, including 8,215 who indicated that they are registered to vote. The poll included 2,327 Republicans and 2,780 Democratswith margins of error of 2.8 percentage points and 2.2 percentage points, respectively.

Mario’s note:  This is not presented as an endorsement of Donald Trump but to report what is going on.  Something is happening in our nation that we should be paying attention to.  In the coming months the church will have to pray through on whether Trump  is a blessing or a curse.

Hillary is going to be indicted

Hillary is going to be indicted

By Cathy Burke   |   Friday, 08 Jan 2016 04:39 PM

The FBI and intelligence community “would go ballistic” if there’s no indictment in the case of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s
A former U.S. Attorney predicts a Watergate-style showdown in the Department of Justice if Attorney General Loretta Lynch overrules a potential FBI recommendation to indict Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“The [FBI] has so much information about criminal conduct by her and her staff that there is no way that they walk away from this,” Joseph diGenova, formerly the District of Columbia’s U.S. Attorney, told Laura Ingraham in a Tuesday radio interview. “They are going to make a recommendation that people be charged and then Loretta Lynch is going to have the decision of a lifetime.

“I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that, unless [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general. It will be like Watergate. It will be unbelievable.”

DiGenova is referring to the Watergate scandal’s “Saturday Night Massacre” Oct. 20, 1973, when President Richard Nixon sacked Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox and Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned in protest.

DiGenova is well-sourced throughout the law enforcement community and his assessment has to be taken seriously. But interviews with other knowledgeable Washington insiders present a somewhat less concrete scenario developing around the former secretary of state.

At the center of Clinton’s difficulties is her use of a private email account and a home-brew server located in her New York home to conduct official business while serving as America’s chief diplomat between 2009 and 2013. Several of her closest aides also used the private server.

Clinton clearly didn’t abide by federal regulations requiring officials like her to use government computers and email accounts to conduct official business and take all of the necessary steps to preserve all such correspondence concerning official business.

watergate_montage_2

As first reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation, Clinton emailed Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden Sept. 7, 2010, asking for advice on what she, President Barack Obama and Democratic campaign officials should do to prevent a Republican victory in the upcoming congressional elections.
“Do you and CAP have any ideas as to how to change the dynamic before it’s too late? Losing the House would be a disaster in every way,” Clinton told Tanden. The CAP chief responded at length with clearly partisan recommendations, noted her supposedly non-partisan think tank’s polling efforts to identify winning themes for Democrats and described her conversations relaying her advice to Obama and other senior White House officials.

On its face, the Sept. 7 Clinton email appears to be a violation of the Hatch Act, which bars partisan political activities by officials using government property while on official duty. But Clinton found a clever way to get around the law, according to a senior non-profit official with extensive experience investigating such activities. The official spoke on condition of anonymity.

First, that official said, by not preserving her email records until after she resigned as secretary of state, Clinton avoided an investigation by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), which handles Hatch Act violations. The reason is simple — OSC has no authority over former federal employees in Hatch Act matters.

Second, by refusing to comply “with Federal Records Act requirements to use an approved system for preserving records, [Clinton] arguably did not engage in political activities while on official duty or while using federal resources because she communicated with a personal computer,” the official said.

In other words, “had Secretary Clinton used a State Department e-mail address and a government computer and had Secretary Clinton complied with federal record-keeping and open government laws, [her] violations would have been discoverable under the Freedom of Information Act and could have been remedied while Secretary Clinton was still in office.”

Thus, don’t expect a Clinton indictment for a Hatch Act violation.

But Clinton is far from out of the woods, according to a congressional source who is deeply involved in the multiple investigations of Clinton.  This source, who also spoke only on condition of anonymity, pointed to the hundreds of Clinton emails that contained classified information.

“Her problem is the sheer volume of emails that were deemed classified,” said this source. “Her first defense was that she didn’t send any classified information in her emails. But that claim has been clearly rendered false because so many of the emails were later marked classified.” obama_hillary_cash-thumb

As the Department of State has released the Clinton emails she provided after leaving office, more than a thousand were marked classified after being reviewed prior to their public release. So what about Clinton’s subsequent distinction that she sent no information in her emails that was “marked classified” when it was sent?

“The volume matters because a reasonable person knows somebody like the Secretary of State, who is allowed herself to classify materials, who has handled it for 25 years or more, at some point the law says you are responsible for recognizing classified material when you see it. That gets to the negligence issue,” the issue said.

Negligence is critical because Clinton signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement in 2009 regarding classified information that stated, among much else, that “Sensitive Compartmented Information involves or derives from intelligence sources or methods that is classified or is involved in a classification determination …”

Clinton and several of her closest aides must have read information “derived from intelligence sources or methods” on a daily or near-daily basis.Benghazi Massacre Blog copy

There is an ominous sentence buried in that agreement Clinton signed: “Nothing in this agreement constitutes a waiver by the United States of the right to prosecute me for any statutory violations.”

What if Clinton is indicted for negligence in handling classified information? DiGenova predicts a showdown within a couple of months that will put Lynch in the same hot seat that prompted Nixon to fire Cox for getting too close to the truth about Watergate.

A Republican with direct knowledge of the investigation predicted political chaos if Lynch doesn’t decide to prosecute Clinton, a chaos that “would be the gift that keeps on giving right through the election.”

With or without resignations of FBI officials to protest such a decision, there would be a blizzard of news releases from congressional GOPers condemning Lynch, followed by hearings in which both the attorney general and FBI Director James Comey would be put under oath and asked about their actions.

Kentucky clerk who denied gay marriage licenses released from jail

Kentucky clerk who denied gay marriage licenses released from jail

 Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk locked up for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, was released from jail on Tuesday — as her case also drew the personal attention of two presidential candidates.

Davis was greeted by a crowd of singing and cheering supporters as she exited the jail. They sang “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America,” as her attorney vowed Davis would be back to work “this week.”

The order for her release came from U.S. District Judge David Bunning, the same judge who initially jailed the Rowan County clerk last Thursday on a contempt of court charge. But Bunning lifted that order Tuesday. He said the court is “satisfied” that since last week, the clerk’s office has been issuing marriage licenses “to all legally eligible couples” — those licenses have been handled by Davis’ deputy clerks.

At the same time, Bunning directed Davis not to “interfere in any way” with the marriage licenses now being issued by her office.

“If Defendant Davis should interfere in any way with their issuance, that will be considered a violation of this Order and appropriate sanctions will be considered,” he said in the order. Bunning is the son of former Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning.

More on this…

  • Why Mike Huckabee is standing with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis

Her legal counsel did not say whether Davis had any intention to defy the courts.

Rather, attorney Mat Staver said: “She loves God, she loves people, she loves her work — and she will not betray any of those three.”

He said Davis will not violate her “conscience,” and said the court order “did not resolve the underlying issue.” He reiterated Davis’ request for an “accommodation” to remove her name from gay marriage certificates. “Kim still is asking for that today,” he said.

The decision from Bunning came down just before Davis received jailhouse visits from Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz. They were ushered into the building shortly after the judge’s order was issued, as was Davis’ husband, Joe Davis.

“She was willing to go to jail for what she believed,” Huckabee said, as he accompanied Davis and her attorney out of the jail. He also tweeted:

Davis’ stand has become a political lightning rod in the 2016 race, rallying social conservatives while drawing the scorn of Democrats; some Republican presidential candidates also have suggested she went too far in refusing marriage licenses.

But 2016 candidates like Cruz and Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, have used her case to highlight the issue of religious freedom and reach out to evangelical Christians.

Leading conservative/libertarian declares “Pray that Hillary gets nominated. She is our best hope

By Wayne Allyn Root

WayneAllynRoot_Head copy

If you’re a conservative, Libertarian, limited government Constitutionalist or patriot, pray for Hillary. She’s our best hope for 2016. I love Hillary Clinton. I’m rooting for Hillary. She is a gift from heaven. I pray for her nomination every morning.

No, I’m not a fan of Hillary. No, I don’t support her policies. No, I don’t want her as president. But I sure want her as the Democratic nominee. She is “the gift that keeps on giving.” Hillary has so much baggage her campaign should be sponsored by Samsonite.

If the GOP has any hope of winning in 2016, Hillary has to be the nominee. Before I get to the scandals, let’s start with the obvious. Hillary is old news, over the hill, tired, worn out, spoiled milk. She is just going through the motions. She doesn’t even look or sound like she cares. Hillary herself can’t think of a single compelling reason for why she should be president. She’s just been waiting around a long time. And she’s a woman. That’s it. That’s her reason.

She’s so old and entitled that the guy who managed her campaign for U.S. Senate, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, refuses to endorse her for president. He basically just said what I said. She’s old news. She has no new ideas. She offers America nothing new. That’s one of her closest allies speaking.

Every candidate needs a brand. Hillary’s brand is “Entitlement. It’s my time. Oh, and I’m a female.” Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

If Hillary is the nominee, she can be destroyed and branded with so many scandals, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Destroy her with her own words, “What difference does it make?” Those were her words in front of a congressional committee about the Benghazi tragedy. Four heroes were murdered. She participated in a coverup and all she could think to say was, “What difference does it make?” Meaning, those young heroes are all dead, so who cares?

Her own TV ads in 2008 bragged about her decision-making abilities at 2 a.m. when the important call comes in. Well, we now know what she said when that call came in during the attack on Benghazi. She heard our heroes were about to be murdered and she said, “What difference does it make?” Then, she went back to sleep. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

I suggest TV ad campaigns featuring the parents of those four men abandoned by Hillary and Barack Obama and left to die at the hands of a radical Muslim mob, who clearly were supplied with their weapons by … Hillary and Obama. Let’s ask the parents how they feel about Hillary. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Is she scared of her role in Benghazi? Well, she erased 32,000 emails. She should be called “Tricky Dicky Hillary.” She was a lawyer on the committee investigating Richard Nixon’s scandals. She knew all about the erased Nixon audiotapes. She learned well. That must be where she got the idea to delete 32,000 emails and wipe the server clean. Like Nixon, she decided what we the people needed to know. Then she pressed “delete.” Run those TV ads 24 hours a day. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.Hillary-Allah

What difference did she make as secretary of state? Name her accomplishments? The world is in flames, the Middle East melted down, ISIS was born, Iran laughed in our face while building a nuclear program — all under her leadership. The world is a far more dangerous place. What difference did she make? Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

“We were dead broke when we left the White House.” There’s another great line. Let’s play it 24 hours a day. Maybe that’s why the Clintons stole the china and furniture on the way out the door. Maybe that’s why $6 billion went missing at the State Department under her watch. When you’re broke, $6 billion can make a big difference. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Hillary says she is a “woman of the people.” She’s one of us. But she hasn’t driven a car since 1996. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Hillary is all about the middle class. She has decided to make the middle class the centerpiece of her campaign for president. But “Mrs. Middle Class” demands $300,000 for a one-hour speech and a Gulfstream private jet to take her there and back.

She also gets the presidential suite at a five-star hotel, or she won’t show up. No Marriotts, Hiltons or Holiday Inns for Hillary. Run those facts 24 hours a day. Let’s see how middle-class women respond to her list of demands. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Hillary is all about honesty and transparency. But it turns out she bought 2 million fake Facebook fans. I guess those are the things you have to do when you ask middle-class college kids paying obscene tuition to pay for your $300,000 speeches and private jets. It must be hard to find real fans! Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

But I saved the best for last: The Clinton Foundation. The Clintons have raised more than $2 billion dollars in donations from the wealthiest people, companies and foreign governments in the world. She’s not “conflicted.” Hillary is bought and paid for. If she wins the presidency, she should wear pantsuits custom designed with patches from corporate sponsors. You know, like NASCAR. She should have Penske and Valvoline patches on her pantsuits. The White House should say: “America’s House, Brought to you by the government of Saudi Arabia.”

Hillary says she fights for the rights of women. Yet she accepts hundreds of millions in donations from Muslim governments that stone women, make them hide behind veils, don’t allow them to drive without a man in the car, don’t allow them to be educated, and arrest and whip them (occasionally even execute them) for being the victims of rape. She could be the biggest hypocrite in the history of politics.hillary vicious

Here’s a great line for TV commercials: “When a Muslim country gives a $10 million check to The Clinton Foundation, then stones a woman, what does Hillary say? ‘Thank you!’” Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

She says she fights for the rights of gays. She tweeted her horror at the new Indiana law protecting religious freedom. But she gladly accepted multimillion-dollar checks from Muslim governments that stone gays and drop them off roofs of buildings. This is the biggest fraud and hypocrite in the history of world politics. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Remember Hillary’s TV commercial about that important phone call at 2 a.m.? We need to run TV ads 24 hours a day asking, “When that call comes in at 2 a.m. and it involves one of those countries that gave millions to the Clinton Foundation, do you trust Hillary Clinton to make the decision that is best for America, for your interests, for your children? Hillary Clinton: bought and paid for by foreign governments.” Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

And if you’re a Democrat, you’d better start praying that Hillary is destroyed before she wins the nomination — and early enough that there is time to find and vet a credible replacement. This woman is a ticking time bomb. It’s not a matter of if, but only a matter of when, she implodes or some scandal comes rushing to the surface to blow her campaign to tatters. Maybe it’ll be Benghazi. Or the 32,000 deleted emails. Or maybe it’s the Clinton Foundation. Or maybe it’s her chief of staff and constant woman at her side, Huma Abedin. That story smells worse than all the others.

But I know one thing: Hillary is the most flawed candidate in the history of politics. And I’m praying on bended knees that Hillary gets the nomination.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.

Netanyahu at Western Wall: I respect Obama, but it’s my duty to ensure Israel’s security

Netanyahu at Western Wall: I respect Obama, but it’s my duty to ensure Israel’s security

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to the Western Wall Saturday night, just hours before flying to Washington on one of the the most contentious visits there by an Israeli prime minister in recent memory.

With the Wall as his backdrop, Netanyahu said that he wanted to visit Judaism’s holiest site before embarking on his trip Sunday morning to Washington where his scheduled speech before Congress on Tuesday has placed him at loggerheads with the White House.

“I want to take this opportunity to say that I respect US President Barack Obama,” he stressed. “I believe in the strength of the relationship between Israel and the US and in their strength to overcome differences of opinion, those that have been and those that will yet be. ” Netanyahu reiterated his position that as Israel’s prime minister it was his obligation to worry about Israel’s security, “and for that reason we strongly opposed the agreement being formulated between the world powers and Iran that could endanger Israel’s very existence.”

This is the first time since he became prime minister for the second time in 2009 that Netanyahu visited the Wall before embarking on a trip to the United States. This followed by two days a visit he made to his father’s grave in Jerusalem. His father, Netanyahu explained to the haredi radio station Kol B’rama on Friday, always gave him advice at critical junctures in his life.

“He said to always look at the threats endangering our people,” Netanyahu said of his father, Benzion, a noted historian who passed away in 2012. “He said that one of the things that was lacking in Jewish history was seeing in real time what endangers our existence.” The obligation incumbent on Israel’s leaders, Netanyahu said, is to identify the dangers in time and do everything they can to scuttle them.

“My responsibility is to worry not only about the State of Israel, but also the future of the Jewish people,” he said, “to stand up and raise our voice. Seventy, eighty years ago no one could raise their voice when there were plans to destroy us. Today there is, and it is my obligation.”

In the interview Netanyahu pointed to former prime minister David Ben-Gurion, Levi Eshkol, and Menachem Begin as leaders who during their tenures took action they felt was necessary even though it ran contrary to strongly-stated US policies.

“When there is something that is connected to our very existence, what do they expect the prime minister to, bow his head and accept something that is dangerous in order to have good relations?” he asked. “I think the relations are strong enough to overcome the disagreements, and that Iran with an atomic bomb is much more dangerous than one disagreement or another [with the US].”

Government officials said that, as is Netanyahu’s won’t, work on the speech to Congress will continue until it is delivered at 11.00 am Tuesday morning. The officials said that Netanyahu genuinely believes this is a historic moment, and that in the best case scenario the speech could compel “policy makers to rethink concessions that they are willing to make to the Iranians.”

Netanyahu is scheduled to arrive in Washington Sunday afternoon, and deliver a speech to AIPAC’s annual policy conference Monday morning that will focus on the strength of the US-Israel relationship. He is scheduled to have lunch with a bipartisan group of Congressional leaders on Tuesday afternoon after delivering his address to Congress, and then fly back to Israel, arriving a few hours before the onset of Purim.

In his interview on Friday he noted the timing, saying that just as Jews on Purim remember the attempt in Persia in antiquity to destroy the Jews, “it is the same Persia with a regime that is waving the banner of destroying the state of the Jews. The means by which they intend on implementing this threat is with many atomic bombs.”

Netanyahu will be accompanied to Washington by ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, who was in Jerusalem last week helping him prepare for the trip, his top advisors, and his wife, Sarah.

A TIME TO STAND


A Time to Stand July 4th 2016,  By Mario Murillo

They had money, education and prestige so why would they sign a letter that promised to turn them into hunted animals for the rest of their lives? Five of them were captured and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.  Two lost their sons in the war; another two had sons captured. Nine died from wounds in battle.

I am talking about the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. They signed it because, while they valued their homes, their businesses and their prestige, they valued liberty even more. But did you know that nearly half of the pastors in America today would not have supported the Declaration of Independence?  Think of it, if it had rested with these modern preachers there would be no United States today.  Wait until you hear why.

This letter has two burning goals.  The first is to clear the air about why I speak out against our president and our congress and the second is to call for a general resistance by the preachers in America to the policies that are destroying the nation.

These 56 were godly, successful, and wise men were driven to an inescapable conclusion and it is urgent that we realize that history is repeating itself.  “When in the Course of human events” The word WHEN is the key word in the opening phrase of the Declaration of Independence. The entire document rests on that single word.  It means that something changed so drastically that they broke with deep connections and long standing traditions.  It means that after agonizing prayer and deliberation their course of action became undeniable and inescapable.

artwork of the declaration

The Church in America has just had her WHEN moment:

-When the president becomes lawless and the Congress becomes clueless, when unstoppable crime and poverty are the direct result of government gridlock, when the church and law-abiding citizens are targeted by the FBI, the IRS and the NSA for their religious or political beliefs.

-When Americans owe 60 trillion dollars in personal debt which means we are literally living on borrowed time. When the middle class is 25% of what it was in the 1950s, and about to vanish. When even youth, Obama’s last bastion of support have awakened to him and rejected him. 

-When they are calling him out for his disastrous plunge into socialism and removing their medical rights, violating their privacy and stealing their future.

-When our borders are broken down and when the world has become dangerous because our foreign policy is in shambles and when the destruction of the Republic is at hand, then it is time for the Church to intervene and stand with the Bible first and then the Constitution.

Listen to further words from the Declaration: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

This is exactly where we are right now.   Half of all of our pastors would not have supported the Declaration of Independence? How is this possible?  It is possible because a noxious wind of doctrine is blowing through the church that cheapens words like Grace, Honor and Love and engenders complacency.  Many leaders even now openly teach that repentance is unnecessary and that confronting government is never right.

thomas-jefferson quote copy

We have seen this all before. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the great German pastor and theologian was asked in 1943 how it was possible for the church to sit back and let Hitler seize absolute power.  His answer was very direct; he said “it was the teaching of cheap grace.”

Is it just a coincidence that the same spiritual emphasis that lulled Lutherans to sleep has reappeared at the time when our freedom is in mortal danger?  No it is not a coincidence, it is Satan. For the devil, this doctrine of passivity could not have come at a better time.

Consider what a satanic masterstroke it is to prevent us from doing two things:

1. Provoke us to silence at the very moment that the nation needs to hear righteous voices.              

2. Downplay the need for repentance when repentance is most urgently required.

When asked why pastors don’t speak out Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church Dallas said,  “I think one reason is a lot of Christian leaders have the wrong idea about Jesus,” Jeffress replied “They see Jesus as this little, wimpy guy who walked around plucking daisies and eating birdseed and saying nice things, but never doing anything controversial. The fact is, Jesus did confront his culture with truth — and he ended up being crucified because of it.”  “I believe it’s time for pastors to say, you know, I don’t care about controversy, I don’t care whether I’m going to lose church members, I don’t care about building a big church. I’m going to stand for truth regardless of what happens.”

quote 1

Here are the two portions of scripture that are often misused to silence the church:

 1. Matthew 7: 1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.”

2. Romans 13:1  “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.    2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not terrors to good works, but to evil.”

The signers of the Declaration of Independence knew the Bible better than 90% of our ordained ministers today.  They grappled with the same issues we face today and asked the same questions we ask today.  Twenty four of them were lawyers and jurists and almost half had been to Bible school or seminary.  In the process, they must have confronted those two portions of scripture. They also prayed fervently and believed that they had heard from God.  Years later Benjamin Franklin when they were working on the Constitution reminded them of their daily prayer for wisdom on the Declaration: “In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered.”

Declaration_independence

This is what I believe they concluded:

1. Matthew 7: 1   When Jesus condemned judging, he wasn’t at all implying we should never make judgments about anyone. After all, a few verses later, Jesus himself calls certain people “pigs” and “dogs” (Matt 7:6) and “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (7:15). … What Jesus condemns is a critical and judgmental spirit, an unholy sense of superiority. Jesus commanded us to examine ourselves first for the problems we so easily see in others. Only then can we help remove the speck in another’s eye – which, incidentally, assumes that a problem exists and must be confronted.

2. Romans 13:1-2 Many Christians interpret this passage of Scripture to mean that we should offer unquestioning obedience to government, even if it’s an evil and corrupt government.  This is simply not true.  Most people fail to consider verse 3, “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.”  Clearly, God is speaking about GOOD government in Romans 13… Because they are a terror to evil works, i.e., crimes.

But these 56 men are also proof of the power of God to help us right now! I am speaking out because I know that we still have time for a miracle.  Here is my 5 declarations to you:

1.  We must rise up as an outspoken unified, cross denominational firewall against the destruction of America. Whether you believe in tongues or not; whether you believe in total immersion baptism or spot removing, regardless of your view of how the world will end we must find common ground at the foot of the Cross.  When it comes to the preservation of our liberty our doctrinal nuances must take a backseat to unified action.

2. We must not think that telling the truth is unloving.  Paul said, “Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in the truth.”  We must sacrifice short-term acceptance for long-term results.  In the long run, when the nation is spared the masses will see that repentance and prayer saved the day… and that my friend is real love.  Politicians must feel the force of our convictions. We must, in no uncertain terms, remind the denizens on both sides of the aisle of the Washington swamp that they work for us or we will fire them.

3. Let your convictions rule you and not theological trends.  Find your assignment and vow to execute it. Listen to me! Servant of God:your best friend is your destiny and your mortal enemy is the intoxication of prevailing opinion.

4. Preach Bible truth from the pulpit.  Let me put it to you plainly: It all starts with the preaching.  If American preaching returns to the Bible and our sermons are thundered from burning hearts full of the Holy Spirit we have more than a good chance to save America. If preaching stays as is, there is no chance…period. Pastors were dispensing new age goobly gook when they should have been training the people in biblical morality.  This is one big reason that 6 million Christians voted for their pocketbooks instead their convictions. Remember the words of Dr. Jeffress “I’m going to lose church members; I don’t care about building a big church. I’m going to stand for truth regardless of what happens.”

5. Let us pray!  Call that fellow minister that you haven’t spoken to in 20 years.  Meet for prayer, not mystical prayer, not tepid prayer, and not complicated prayer just heart felt prayer.  Pray like those 56 men prayed in Independence Hall.  Pray Psalm 119:126 “It is time for You oh God to act for they have nullified Your law.”

We will never speak out against the government unless the Holy Spirit prompts us.  And it will never be something we do instead of the Gospel but because of it.  Those who believe we should remain silent will get a lot more silence than they bargained for if we lose our freedom of speech. To say that will never happen is to forget all of the things that have happened in 6 years that we never thought could happen. Moreover, we’ve always had a prophetic calling to warn the nation.

It only seems like we have changed but it is the White House that has changed. It actively opposes the Gospel.  One of the campaign officials even boasted that in winning the election, “we defeated Christianity.” Let me ask you one final question: If not now, at what point will it feel right for the ministers of America to drop their petty disagreements and provide a unified opposition to the destruction of our Constitution, our Judeo Christian traditions, marriage and the future of our children? Many ministers lash out at those who out speak against the president.

This is so strange!  No pastors ever questioned us when were outspoken about the damage that heroin, crack cocaine or gang violence did to inner city neighborhoods.  But now that the government has become the most dangerous gang in the hood and government dependency has become the most addictive drug we supposed to remain silent? However, I am overcome by hope for America and here is why:

It was 1972. I stood in the rain outside Pauley Ballroom on the Berkeley Campus. Inside, Jane Fonda led a loud chorus of obscenities.  A thousand students were cursing God and America. Instinctively, I raised my Bible it pointed it at the hall.  I confessed that one day I would lead a bigger and louder crowd in shouts of praise to God and blessing to America.  That miracle came to pass in vivid detail in less than three years.  1,200 students raised a deafening shout of praise to God and blessing to America and as a part of the larger Jesus Movement it changed the mood of the nation.

I stand in awe of the towering miracle that is the Declaration of Independence. I weep because I know that I am not worthy of its courage and truth.  It haunts me. It stalks me. It exposes me, and it comforts me. It is the quintessential moral compass of a nation that has lost its way. I feel my knees buckling beneath me in prayer for I feel that evil has touched something precious to Jesus.  This grand document proves God’s amazing ways and that He is waiting in the wings to answer prayer and heal the land.  Admit it!  We don’t know what to do but we know who does know what to do.  If they could, those 56 men would say it with all of their strength: A MIRACLE IS COMING IF WE PRAY AND THEN OBEY.

P.S.

It would be a thrill for me to hear from those of you who are taking a stand with us against the demise of our nation and believe  ministers should not be silent as America is destroyed.  I value your comments and support.

Ann Compton on Obama: He Launches ‘Profanity-Laced’ Tirades Against Press

The journalist, who retired in August after a 40-year career, revealed to C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb: “I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. Both were off-the-record times. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals.” [MP3 audio here.]

She explained, “And I don’t find him apologetic. But I find him willing to stand up to the press and look them in the eye, even though it was off the record and just give us hell.”

After Lamb wondered if the President had a point, she chided, “We cover what we are allowed to cover. And when policy decisions and presidents are inaccessible and don’t take questions from the press on a regular basis, I think they reap what they sow.”

Despite Obama’s apparent rage against the press, he hasn’t had much to complain about. The Media Research Center documented how journalists covered-up his failures and scandals.

Earlier in the hour-long C-SPAN interview, which aired on Sunday night, but was recorded in October, Compton slammed the “opaque” administration:

ANN COMPTON: Before I walked out the door on September 10, I was a strong voice for complaining that this particular administration has been more opaque than any I have covered about what the President does in the Oval Office everyday. He is far less accessible on photo-ops with meetings. Even some meetings on the record, meeting in the Roosevelt room with financial leaders from, from Wall Street or on issues with environmental groups, or with issues with environmental groups, with public opinion leaders, I think most presidents have been far more forthcoming than the second Obama term, in terms of what the President is doing every day and we almost never get photo-ops.

She added that it’s fine for the White House to take its own photographs, but “those same elements should not be blocked from the White House press corps.”

Interestingly, on Compton’s last day in August, the President called on her for a final question. She chose to ask about the police shooting in Ferguson, not the concerns she expressed to C-SPAN.

(H/T to Heritage’s Mike Gonzalez for first noticing Compton’s comments and tweeting about them.)

A partial transcript of the October 30 segment is below:

ANN COMPTON: Before I walked out the door on September 10, I was a strong voice for complaining that this particular administration has been more opaque than any I have covered about what the President does in the Oval Office everyday. He is far less accessible on photo-ops with meetings. Even some meetings on the record, meeting in the Roosevelt room with financial leaders from, from Wall Street or on issues with environmental groups, or with issues with environmental groups, with public opinion leaders, I think most presidents have been far more forthcoming than the second Obama term, in terms of what the President is doing every day and we almost never get photo-ops. 

I think I went through a time of three or four months where I was never in the Oval Office once on my pool day. Part of this may be that the President feels a little bit on the ropes. His job approval rating is down to 40 percent consistently for the last couple of years since his reelection. He also has his own tools. He is the first president with his own journalistic tools. They’ve all had photographers. He has his own videographers. He has a newscast on Friday mornings on WhiteHouse.gov. It is anchored by his former deputy, now press secretary, Josh Earnest. I think it is fine if the President of the United States wants to present his own version of what he did all week. Most of it is behind the scenes shots of him with Supreme Court justices and leaders coming in from Wall Street. It is fine that he puts it on the internet and that everybody can see it. Those same elements should not be blocked from the White House press corps.

54 minutes in

[Recounting her experiences dealing with presidents.]

COMPTON: Every president is a human being as well as a president. And I’m often asked for favorite moments. Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait. George Herbert Walker Bush goes to Camp David and convenes his war cabinet, comes back tot he White House. He stops in front of my camera and says, the Arab world is united against Saddam Hussein. I blurt out, “Mr. President, Arab leaders like King Hussein have flown to Baghdad and embraced him. President Bush barked at me and said, “I can read. What’s your question?” The next day, before  before he sends American troops to the war, he writes me a letter, saying, he was not pleased with his answers to me. below his signature, GB, is initials, he drew a happy face wearing a frown. Imagine the president of the United States taking a moment in history like that to apologize to the press.

55:50

LAMB: So, off of that experience, how many other presidents were that aware of what they said to you and how many just did not pay attention at all and you had no personal reaction from them?

COMPTON: I think most presidents realize – had a personal connection. I don’t think they ever — we were ever in a confrontation-type moment where they felt the need to apologize. I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. Both were off-the-record times. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals. Another where he took us to task for not understanding the limits he has with foreign policy and the way he’s dealing with the Middle East and Iraq, and Afghanistan. And I don’t find him apologetic. But I find him willing to stand up to the press and look them in the eye, even though it was off the record and just give us hell. 

LAMB: Does he have a point?

COMPTON: From his point of view, he may. But we cover what we are allowed to cover. And when policy decisions and presidents are inaccessible and don’t take questions from the press on a regular basis, I think they get — they reap what they sow.
