My greatest shock

It is the greatest shock of my life that the American church has remained dormant. What atrocity must the Democrat Party commit before the American Church rises in appropriate outrage and rises to do her duty? By now, any other generation of Christians would be galvanized and unified in holy outrage.  Any other generation of preachers would be thundering from pulpits shaking drowsy believers awake.

The Democrats have rabies—and their bite will destroy our nation. Don’t believe me?  Take a look at what they did just today.

Today Democrats have shifted from legal immigration to open defiance of Federal Law. It was brewing, but now it is being finalized. They do not want to fix immigration, and are determined to break the law.

Jonathan S. Tobin reports:

“But it is quite another for Democratic leadership to declare, with near unanimity, as is the case with the party’s presidential candidates, that they wish to decriminalize entering the country without permission and to grant those who do so government-paid health care. The same goes with states now offering paid college tuition and driver’s licenses to people who crossed into the country illegally.

“Such positions are a neon “welcome” sign on the border that tells those who want to come here without following the rules that there will be no negative consequences for doing so. While liberals say Trump’s claim that they support “open borders” is a lie, there’s no other way to describe the net effects of such policies. Democrats now support treating entering the country illegally as the moral equivalent of jaywalking or spitting on the sidewalk.”

When will you see that we are being invaded? Our way of life, our faith, our very existence.

-Today Democrats voted to impeach President Trump.  They have zero grounds to impeach Trump and are doing it simply out of hatred for the man. This is rogue government, pure and simple. The fact that the vote failed does not change the outrage of how vulgar and out of control the Democrat House is.

-Today Elizabeth Warren hired a pro Hamas Aide to cement her hatred of Israel. “Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon reported that Warren recently hired anti-Israel radical Max Berger, who helped to found the IfNotNow organization, a group that has devoted itself to damaging Israel’s reputation in America under the guise of seeking an end to Israel’s “occupation” of Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem.

“In doing so, IfNotNow routinely ignores Palestinian terrorism against Jews, promotes the “scholarship” of noted terrorist spokespersons, and even harasses young Jews attending Birthright trips.”

Today, the Democrats declared that anyone who disagrees with them is a racist.

That’s just today.

You already know that they support banning the Bible, Christian T-Shirts, prayer, and sermons they deem homophobic or Islamophobic.  They believe in killing babies even after they are born. They are in lockstep with Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Google, and Twitter to control information and blackout any content that supports Trump’s reelection.

Not only this, but there is also their concerted attack on the Founding Fathers, which is their pretext for altering the American Constitution and decertifying the Declaration of Independence.  The absolute worst mixture is ignorance with arrogance. Democrats are held hostage by voices that at any other time in history would be silenced in a heartbeat.

All of this begs several very big questions:

How can the church still be silent?

How is it possible that some pastors will still advise their people to vote for Democrat candidates?

If our faith is not about stopping this, then what is it for?

Why are some still teaching a tired falsehood—the lie that Jesus doesn’t want us to choose sides in such a blatant case of good versus evil? 

And the last question: What is the American Church waiting for?

 

American Christians do not know their duty because they do not know the Bible.  Of course Satan planned it this way. While he was moving the Democrat Party to the extreme left, he was moving the church toward marshmallow faith.

Democrats are not a political party anymore—they are a criminal enterprise that is mobilizing to remove your rights, ban Christianity, and legislate immorality.

Tragically, many modern American Christians have proven that they can stomach the vileness. This is especially sad, because that seems to be the only real strength they have—a tolerance for immorality. And do the preachers of this era have any inkling of how history will judge their deafening silence?

Democrats will create chaos and tyranny. Ignoring this will condemn your children and grandchildren to live in a world that is too horrible to describe. Worst of all, you won’t be there for them.  Maybe you don’t feel great outrage over what you consider a ‘secular’ subject, such as politics…but dear God, what will become of your children?

Nehemiah exhorts us from across the ages: Nehemiah 4:14, “And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.””

It is at this point that I wish to offer you some comfort.  You may remember in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, when Scrooge is terrified when confronted by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, in the dank, dark bedroom of Scrooge’s London home.

Cowering in fear, Scrooge cries out, “Jacob! Old Jacob Marley, tell me more! Speak comfort to me, Jacob!” With that the ghost candidly replies, “I have none to give. Such comfort comes from other regions, Ebenezer Scrooge, and is conveyed by other ministers, to other kinds of men.”

I reach deep down inside, and struggle to find what words of comfort I can offer—but I cannot lie—I cannot find any. Often, like Marley, I have no comfort to give.  The truth and comfort collide. I wonder.

I pray to God that the concept of “comfort conveyed by other ministers, to other kinds of men” does not apply to the American church. Is the lukewarm American church disqualified from the comfort and the moral awakening it must have, because those things belong to other kinds of preachers, who preached other kinds of sermons to other kinds of Christians?

Arise, church of God!  Take up the weapons of your warfare, and fight for your nation and your families— and fight the evil that threatens us all, in the Name of Jesus!

 

NOT RACIST

Trump’s Tweet was not racist, but Nancy Pelosi’s statement was. She said that Trump was trying to make America white again. That is a patently racist remark. Only the Left gets away with making a racist remark while voting at the same time to condemn a Tweet that was not racist. Are you still there?
Trump should not back down from his Tweet about ‘the Squad.’ The Republican members of the House should not vote to condemn Trump. Trump is right to offer the Squad a return to their home country if they hate America.
Millions agree with this sentiment.  Millions of us feel that politicians who have been rescued from horrendous situations and who then call America evil—those who spout anti-Semitic taunts, and whose home nation is ten times worse—should consider going home.   The President correctly pointed out that if you are indeed a crusader against poverty, injustice, and oppression, the nation you fled is a prime candidate for your crusade.
Ilhan Omar said “I’m embarrassed and ashamed to live in this hypocrisy.” Okay then: why is she here?
Americans know ingratitude, arrogance, and ignorance when they see it. They see the Squad as flat out liars, who have zero good to say about America.
If there is racism in this at all, it comes from this Squad of politicians. In their bubble, the white male is the axis of all evil.  How is that not racist? We have the impossibly ironic and insanely amusing situation of people who have made undeniably racist remarks being seen as victims of racism.
Mark Levin said, “Her lack of gratitude and appreciation for America is repulsive. It’s no wonder why the media, such as the NY Times, love these provocative Congresswomen and it stems from their abysmal failure to the American people on their coverage of the Holocaust. Later, Pastor John Hagee’s comments that America is slipping away from Godliness toward self-dealing and secular humanism, which is contrary to the principles of our founding. Finally, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was accused of racism, was defended by Trump, and fired back labeling him a racist today.”

Nancy Pelosi is now possibly the most desperate politician in American history. She is flailing from one extreme to another in a blind search for a magic bullet with which to destroy Trump. She swung from correcting the very Squad she now defends, to attacking it, all within a 24 hour news cycle.

Here is what Nancy’s actions tell us: One day, she worries that alienating the Squad will offend Progressives. The next day she worries that the real America isn’t at all what left-wing news and social media say it is.

But she knows even more. She knows socialism is a bust. She knows millions are weary of political correctness. She destroys innocent reputations and calls for silly boycotts of even the most innocent companies and products. Americans are sick of the Left portraying everything they don’t like as being racist and Nazi.

Americans are outraged and nauseated by flag burnings and by athletes like Megan Rapinoe who make it ‘all about them.’

Americans see how Facebook, Twitter, Google, Instagram and YouTube insult our intelligence every day.  Zuckerberg and Dorsey claim they are not biased against conservatives and Christians, even as they ban more and more content on a daily basis.  They really do think you are stupid, which proves they are stupid.

Nancy Pelosi pulls the dumbest stunt yet, to get the House to formally condemn Trump’s Tweet as racist.  Not one Republican had better vote for this—not one.  It is a trap.

If there is one truth today it is this: You never apologize to the Left. Apologies open the door for them to lie and use it against you later. Trump learned this early on.

A vote to condemn Trump is a false flag. It’s a silly trap like asking the question, “Do you still beat your wife?” If you vote to condemn Trump you are admitting he is a racist.  If you don’t vote to condemn him, you are a racist.

It is a stunt born out of Nancy Pelosi’s panic and desperation.  And, speaking as a Spirit-filled believer—it is demonic.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, (R-Calif.), said in a news conference Tuesday morning that he did not believe Trump’s Tweets were racist.  I quote him: “I believe this is about ideology; this is about socialism versus freedom.”  McCarthy added that it was at a news conference on Monday, as the congresswomen responded to the President, that they “talked more about impeachment than anything else.”

He went on to say, “This is more from their base, it’s about politics, and it’s unfortunate.  We should get back to the business of America.” Amen, brother!

Too Rude?

The President wrote, “Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!”
And, at a Jewish Seminary in New York, he blurted out “I am King Cyrus!”
But, the thing is, that wasn’t Trump…
It was President Harry Truman.  Okay, here’s a President who puts his intention to commit felony assault in writing—imagine the reaction of the media to a Tweet like that!
Truman essentially called himself the reincarnation of King Cyrus—was he delusional?
Oh, and did you know Harry Truman tried to use his power to draft an entire labor union into the United States Army in order to punish them for striking?  Trump is tame by comparison.
Imagine what CNN would do to President Truman today, if he was a Republican.

 

Mark Twain said, “Facts are a stubborn thing.”  It is a fact that Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson nursed greater hatred for the media during their time in office than Trump does today.

This historical perspective shows us Trump is not the madman the media needs him to be.
Notice I said, need.  They need to destroy him.  It is a bottomless need.  It is a need so intense it has consumed all rational journalism.  Facts have become irrelevant. There is even a name for it: Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Any good that President Trump does, they must ignore, or twist it into evil.  They have sold their souls.  As Alec Baldwin said, “There is no way to be too nasty to Trump.”
The need has reduced them to pathetic, blithering automatons who must tell the most trivial lies about him, such as killing goldfish, and how many scoops of ice cream he takes.
Instead of learning from the spanking they got during the election—they increased their daily venom.  They no longer care about ratings—as CNN’s abysmal ratings so eloquently prove. It is only about destroying Trump, even if it means self-destruction for those who hate him.
A football player gets punched, but the ref doesn’t see it—all he sees is the victim punch back, and throws a penalty flag.  Multiply that times a million—welcome to Trump’s world.
Not only is Trump not crazy—not only are his outbursts understandable—but I admire the way he has behaved with greater restraint than his predecessors. I doubt any of them could ever have imagined the level of tyranny, treachery, and treason that is leveled at him every day by the fake news. -Mario Murillo

Footnotes:  My sources:

  1. Truman letter to Paul Hume:

“Mr. Hume:

“I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s (Truman’s daughter) concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an ‘eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.’

“It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“[Newspaper columnist Westbrook] Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”  – Harry S. Truman

 

 

THE ATTACKS ON TRUMP WILL FAIL

It seems like every day someone comes up with an accusation which they are convinced will destroy Donald Trump.  However, a rogue group within the FBI found out that conspiring against the President backfires.  The media tried to boost their ratings by bashing Trump, only to lose both their ratings and their credibility.

Mueller’s witch-hunt investigation flamed out as a political disaster.   Americans can see the insanity of it.   Here is the head-scratching part of the whole deal:  We have proof that Hillary colluded with the Russians to produce a fake dossier that was used to start an investigation of Russian collusion with Trump that can’t be proven.  Are you still there?

Democrats still want to look for Russian collusion, the way O.J. is looking for “the real killer.”

– Comey claimed his new book would do Trump in.  Instead, it was like shooting spit-balls at a battleship.

– CBS believed it had the silver bullet to kill Trump.  They gleefully believed that a Sunday night interview with a porn star would bring him down.  But, Monday came and they joined a long list of disappointed Trump haters whose weapons did not prosper.

– Michael Avenatti believed he would be the Trump-slayer, but now he is being indicted by a long list of former clients.

– Michael Cohen along with Omarosa Manigault Newman, et al.  The list of names goes on, with some of them claiming to have some damaging tapes.  This too, will fail.

– 400 newspapers have declared war on Trump.  You know what will happen with that…

Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured.  You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.   Let me give you 7 reasons why all the attacks on Trump will fail.

1. The poll numbers are skewed against him. Scientists have shown that when people have a favorite candidate who is attacked by the press, they go silent. They still support the person, they just won’t tell you.  Many, many more than we hear about still support Trump. Look at the tens of thousands who arrive the night before, to attend his rallies all over the country.

Even so, Democratic pundits are dismayed at the way President Trump survives.  They were counting on a major drop in support after Trump’s meeting with Putin. It just never happened.

2. Americans see how crazy the attacks on Trump are. People see the flagrant, wanton, and disgraceful attacks that the media makes on him, every single day.  The over-the-top attacks and the insane goals of the Democrat Party have actually turned out to be helping Trump.

Uber-liberal director, Rob Reiner, denounced Robert De Niro and other celebrities for their remarks against President Trump, by saying, “Stop! You’re helping Trump!” Reiner is right. They have inadvertently  become the committee to reelect Trump.

3. It’s the economy. Unemployment is at a 16-year low, and the consumer sentiment levels are at near record highs. When all the background noise settles, and voters with good paying jobs, stand before the lever to cast their vote—the thought of returning to failed Democrat economic policies will horrify them.

4. Donald Trump has plenty of time to win back those who have turned against him. Listen to Jake Novak, senior editor at CNBC: “Both party establishments still need a vote-getting leader and President Trump already has the White House leadership role they covet. He has enormous executive power at his fingertips and the ability to win over some doubters with just the passage of time.”

5. The other side still looks far worse. Chuck Schumer annoys his base, let alone the rest of us.  Elizabeth Warren is a shrill-throated hater of the white middle-class worker.  Bernie Sanders’ economic “Plan 9 from Outer Space” plays well, only because pot has been legalized on campus.  Maxine Waters is a walking VOTE FOR TRUMP machine.  Nancy Pelosi is, well, Nancy Pelosi.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is a gift to Republicans. Even Bill Maher said “”If you want to run a campaign based on reparations and concentration camps, then it’s going to be very hard to win the election.”

6. Millions are praying for our nation. There is no way that the fervent prayer of millions will go unheeded in heaven. Sometimes the early stages of revival look as if things are getting worse before they get better.

I know Satan is writhing in agony right now.  He knows his time is short.  He knows what God is about to do.  He is in a futile rage against the inevitable answer.  He is frantically spewing deception to make the anointed vessels of God think that no answer is coming.

7.This is the big one: Trump is here by divine appointment. Trump will survive.  Not because he’s perfect.  Not because his base is fiercely loyal.  He will survive even though he is hard for some Christians to take.  He is here by divine appointment.  Can you hear all the heads exploding?  Yes, you heard me right—he is here because God set him in the White House.

Today Maxine Waters said that God has raised her up to bring Trump down.  See if you can guess how that is going to turn out.

Donald Trump is here to wreck and dismantle. He is here to apply strong medicine to a self-destructive nation that has turned its back on God.

Nothing else explains why this President is still standing after the cruelest and most unrelenting attack on any leader in American history.  More importantly, nothing else explains why none of this has broken his spirit.   Deal with it.  Someone Who is way bigger than you and me wants him right where he is, doing just what he is doing.

LIARS TRYING TO DIVIDE US

There is a very important reason I am going to show you two nasty comments that were made about one of my blogs. First, please read the comments.

  1. “I honestly don’t understand how God-fearing Christians can defend this repugnant, amoral, adulterous, whoremonger, toddler of a President. Jesus fed the hungry, healed the sick, told His followers not to judge. And Trump’s cruelty knows no bounds. Locate your moral compass. It’s failing you right now.”

(Let me point out how hypocritical it is for this person to say Jesus’ followers are “not to judge,” while this person proceeds to judge, condemn, and speak vile evil of the leader of our nation!)

Here’s the other one:

  1. “Total lies. Any real Christian would not support the evils and sins of this current President. Mario, you and your Fake ministry are all about the money, the root of the devil. You have sold your soul.”

These two comments were written by people who are infiltrators.  I found out that they’ve trained and practiced church terminology , in order to lie and divide us.  They go on social media to pose as Christians.

They are doing this because the church is slowly and finally waking up. More and more believers along with Black Americans and Hispanics are realizing that God has put Donald Trump in power for this very hour. The tide is turning among minorities, so the Left is trying this new tactic.

Recently, I had a note passed on to me from a pastor. The note was from a concerned woman who had slowly worked her way into a place of influence in his church. She eloquently (a little too eloquently) described how dismayed she was by the lack of love among Trump supporters, and she added that the people of God had been fooled or they would not be following such a wicked leader. I don’t have the space or the time to show you how subtle and deceptive her message was. It shook up some of those who read it.

Later, it came out, and she was exposed: she was not a believer at all, but an activist from a local Islamic and Leftist consortium.  She and others were being trained to insinuate their way into churches and social media, in order to spread anti-Trump lies. Trust me, these infiltrators know church lingo. They target impressionable Christians. Don’t buy their lies!

If we let voices like these fool us by shaming our faith and dividing us, it spells doom for America. Trump is the last firewall against the Satan inspired villainous policies of the Left.

An even subtler approach is to accuse Christians who are active in politics of ‘not trusting God.’  Some of these deceivers say, “It’s all in God’s hands. Don’t interfere in His work” This spreads apathy like cancer.

The real indictment here is the naïveté of so many believers. These wolves come among us and we so easily forget the truth.

So now, let me remind you of a few things: It amazes me how easy it is for the noise, smoke, and mirrors of today’s propaganda machine to fool Christians.  Even more amazing is how quickly believers forget such obvious facts as these:

-The Democrat controlled House voted to remove the phrase, “So help me God” from the oath taken by those sworn in to testify.

-They want to legalize killing an unborn child, right up to and even after the moment of birth.

-Kamala Harris, presidential candidate for the Democrat Party, said she would abolish all private health insurance. According to Kaiser, that would wipe out coverage for 49% of Americans…not to mention throwing 500,000 people out of work.

 

-Ms. Harris, along with Cory Booker and every single Democrat candidate, also hates your God given right to defend yourself, and would abolish the Second Amendment of the Constitution, leaving an unarmed populace at the mercy of criminals and an all powerful government. 

-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, “The world is going to end in 12 years.”

 

-Their Marxist-socialism will tax us into oblivion.

-They say Republicans are racist. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.  Civil rights came from the Republican Party.  Democrats were the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, and, take a deep breath and prepare for what history is going to conclude: they were the party that spawned the Klu Klux Klan.

-They accuse us of hate speech, but the Left is guilty of physical violence. The instances of attacks on Leftists are so rare that Jussie Smollett had to stage one.

-An agitated feminist told a black man to take off his MAGA hat “because it makes us fearful.” That’s a statement in search of a fact! You don’t see roving gangs of youth donning MAGA hats and assaulting people in the streets. What you do see is violent Antifa thugs wearing masks and assaulting those who wear those hats.

-In fact, you see Nick Sandmann and the young men from Covington High School terrorized and falsely accused because they wore ‘Make America Great Again’ hats. The lives of these boys have been changed forever. They have been vilified. Their families have received death threats. They’ve been forced to hire an attorney to protect themselves from further slander. 

-Have you forgotten the breathtaking hypocrisy of Mueller and Comey?  They blatantly ignored the mountain of clear evidence against Hillary Clinton for committing acts of treason and obstruction, but openly lied about Trump and the Russians. The crimes they claim Trump did—but that the Mueller Report proves he didn’t do—are the very ones Hillary did do. It is absolutely mind-boggling!

-Consider how Leftists excoriated Trump, accusing him of separating children from their parents at our borders, even as these evil liars celebrate that new law from New York that I mentioned above, which allows a woman to dismember her child in the womb, and even kill her baby at the point of birth.

-They know robots will soon replace millions of jobs. Why are they anxious to open our borders to millions of unskilled laborers?  Is it because they need more potential Democrat voters?

-In Iran, they just hung a person for being homosexual, but in the Leftist universe it is the Christians, not the Muslims, who are the real moral bigots. And you worry about standing with Trump?

The great obsession of these liars, who are infiltrating our churches, is to dredge up Trump’s past. They talk about how we should only follow a perfectly moral President, though they know such a thing doesn’t exist. They say it to try to confuse you. Trump is not a pastor, but he has been placed where he is to be a wrecking ball to destroy the plans of those who would destroy America.  He has made a break from his past, and it is evident to many who knew him that he is not the same man.  Don’t join those who hate him—continue to pray for him! (1 Tim. 2:2).

Remember this: Your children’s future is far more important than Trump’s past!

 

 

Biden would be Obama’s third term

Lost in all the rhetorical dust is this chilling fact: Biden is Obama’s third term. He is—pure and simple—a return to Obama misery. Joe is a shill for Barack. He is a carnival barker for the return of the most failed political sideshow ever.  His campaign slogan should be “REFILL THE SWAMP.”

Okay, before you read anymore, let me tell you, I take no joy in writing blogs like this.  As I have often said, someone else, far more qualified, was supposed to take this mantle, but they didn’t. I just want to win souls, see the sick healed, and bring revival to churches. But, it is what it is so here goes…

We are watching a masterful use of misdirection. The Democrat Party unleashed its screaming Left-wing fringe for a reason. Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and Mayor Pete, are utterly unelectable. They are there to make even a mediocre choice a relief.

Representatives Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Maxine Waters, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are there to gross out the Liberals, and to make them yearn for adult supervision. They are all players in a stunt to rebrand and sanitize Uncle Joe. But no matter what, he remains that unwanted snuggler, and a servant of Obama most high.

That is why you see him rocketing in the polls and why he is suddenly the front-runner. Democrats are supposed to think: JOE BIDEN!−WHAT A RELIEF!

We as Christians need to see through this maze of smoke and mirrors, and face the ugly truth: Obama is trying to come back to power through a surrogate. I knew it when, in a thinly veiled attempt at disguise, Obama said he would not endorse Biden for president and Biden said he would not seek the endorsement. 

In Obama’s mind he never left. He simply put his sleeper cells in place.  He put them in the FBI to get warrants and spy on Donald Trump. He worked the adoring media to make life hell for Trump. He did everything within his power to create chaos and mischief for the new President.

Why is he so callous and bitter? One reason is that he is watching his ‘legacy’ (and, I’m being kind there) being dismantled.  Why is he so bent on staying in power? He hates America, Israel, and the Faith that makes us great.  Am I being harsh? NO! His malice is well documented.

Judge for yourself the number of times Obama acted in direct hostility to the Bible.  https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/americas-most-biblically-hostile-u-s-president-3/

He takes credit for the Trump economy, even though his policies: failed healthcare, immigration, foreign policy, and Leftist court appointments nearly drove us under. He refers to himself gratuitously in every speech he gives.  He is the first President in our history who bashed his successor in the White House.

The single reason they are pushing for impeachment is that they are convinced President Trump will be reelected. They see no other way to stop him. If there was nothing else but the economy, Trump would have the upper hand, but there is so much more. Biden is the only other thing they can think of.

Obama wants power. He wants Israel brought down. He wants to punish the American church. I pray God helps you see what is really happening here.

Joe Biden will bring back all the convoluted and tangled ideas of Obama. He will operate at the behest of his true boss. He will have zero ideas on how to protect us, bring prosperity, or fix anything. He will be the most powerful hand puppet in the history of the world.

Why should you reject this man? A million reasons flood my mind, but let’s focus on just one: Obama is the architect of the most hare-brained lie in recent history: That Trump colluded with Russia. Two years after the most expensive investigation ever, he still pumps the lie to his lackeys.  But, as this investigation by the newly appointed special counsel gets to the source of the FISA Warrant, Obama’s prints will be all over it.

But there is one final mind-numbing lie you must swallow, if you are to believe Donald Trump colluded with Russia. You must then believe that Russia conspired to rebuild the American economy, the military, and our energy companies—all things that make Russia weaker.  Why would Putin put Trump in office knowing it would jeopardize Russia’s hold on the Middle East, strengthen Israel, and make Europe wake up to their NATO responsibilities?

If you believe all that, then Biden is the candidate for you.

The next election

Once in a while someone will say something that is not just true…it is SO true.  That someone said, “if you think healthcare is expense now, just wait till it’s free.” I add, just wait until you see that bleeding the rich gets you nowhere. Just wait until you see how a Leftist dictatorship and not a pot of gold is at the end of the Socialist rainbow.

Just wait until you see how everything gets more expensive and scarce—especially freedom. Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” If he is right, then wanting to try Socialism again is insanity—because it has never produced a different result.

Los Angeles is not even Socialist yet and they are already demonstrating Leftist insanity. They have 41,000 homeless Americans on their streets, but they have opened their border to the poor of other nations to come join the devastation. Not only that, they give more to the foreign poor than to their own poor.

Socialism is the comfort food of the exhausted and the frightened. Our youth are too tired to try. They are overwhelmed by the ethic that leads to success. In their stupor, it feels attractive to let someone else take care of you.

How can they believe something so implausible is plausible? We could blame the legalization of pot. But the attraction to Socialism is never noble. It is not the lofty and courageous aspiration of a pioneer, an inventor, or a warrior.

In their fatigue it is easy to give in to fantasies of soaking the rich to pay for college, a guaranteed stipend to live on. Esau was too drained and hungry to catch the trick Jacob was playing on him. One warm meal was all it took for him to give away his birthright.

We are in a war and it makes me cringe to think that a nation that survived a Civil War and two World Wars may die at the hands of ‘free stuff’. Yet, there is no doubt that there is a clear and present danger.

Our universities and colleges are incubators of lunacy where Socialism can seem promising.  It is on campus that you find those who are so frightened and feel so victimized that an opposing view is the same as violence.

Consider this example from David Limbaugh:

“If you think the Left hasn’t taken over university life in America, you are probably not paying close enough attention or in denial. I’m not just talking about the liberalism of the professors and the core curriculum, but about all of college life. There are glaring examples of Leftist extremism everywhere you turn, and they’re so loony that even sane liberal parents should be concerned.

In September, a Michigan State University student awoke from his nap to an apparently  unbearable sight, according to The College Fix. His roommate was watching a video of  conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. I can guess what some of you must be thinking as you read this: “I sure am glad my kids were never exposed to such provocations, such obnoxious, inconsiderate and uncaring roommates.”

You are probably also thinking, “But if my kid had been the subject of such a triggering event, I hope he would have had the presence of mind to exercise self-help and extricate himself from the hostile environment.”

In this instance, the innocent victim didn’t react violently. He calmly booted up his own computer and filed a complaint against his roommate with the administration’s bias reporting  system. Kind of makes you well up with vicarious pride, no?  As a parent you will also be gratified to learn that the university dutifully dispatched an investigator to dig into this urgent  matter and to work for a “room change if the claimant would like one.””

A generation who are afraid of their own shadow will welcome Socialism. They will sign over their rights. They will accept a dictatorship.

If ever you prayed for America you need to pray this way: God, break the spell of demons over the minds of Americans who would so easily give away their rights in exchange for a false cure.  God help us to remember that a paycheck is freedom and government handouts are a lethal narcotic. Open hearts to see how this scourge destroys dignity, incentive, and sanity.

Every voter will have to choose between freedom or free stuff. You can’t have both. We had better wake to the reality that we will not die at the hands of North Korea, Russia, or even China, but at the hands of our own children. We will not die from bombs but a national debt that will swallow us whole.

Finally, God hates Socialism for the one thing that it does: It takes charity and love and throws it out in favor of a cold government agency. It takes away the joy of giving and replaces it with obligations and a secret resentment for the poor who gets the money – that has been taken from the rich by force.

Dorothy L. Sayers was an Anglican Theologian and a close friend of C.S. Lewis, said this, “The difference is, with the true church, support (for the poor) is a Gospel concern, with gifts of compassion and care; with government, it is a legal issue, and the money is exacted from the rich in taxes. The sad consequence is that love is thereby eliminated, and replaced by law and civic duty.” Socialism indeed kills love.

What the church should be doing, caring for the poor out of love, is instead now cold and institutional.  What Christianity does is give freely and infuses the poor with the gifts that lift them from poverty: dignity and the miracle of a changed heart.

A Leftist pointed to a man in poverty and remarked to Billy Graham, “Communism will put a new suit on that man.” Billy replied, “But Christ will put a new man in that suit.”
