Is God giving us a second national miracle?

Abolish air travel. Pay the masses not to work. Spend 20 trillion dollars. Ban meat. Shut down the energy producing companies. Get rid of all private insurance companies. Give free health care and college to all illegals.  Kill babies after they are born. We are watching Democrat leaders utter complete madness with a straight face. Why?
A strange shift is occurring. All the loony ideas the Democrat party used to stifle and share only among themselves in smoky back rooms are now front and center. It seems they can’t help themselves. Even when they know it damages them, they keep talking crazy. Even when they are presented with incontrovertible facts, they hold to insane policies.
On January 24th, when the left seemed ready to bring down Trump I wrote this: “God will allow lies to grow to such an extreme that it will soon nauseate Americans. The glorification of perversion, the bullying of children, the parade of insane ideas will fill the vat and sicken America. God will see to this.” Now it is happening.

Trump thundered, “America will never be a socialist nation!” and a stunning 76% approved of his speech according to CBS. This, alongside the left’s plunge into lunacy, started the shift. Rasmussen showed another result: a 52% approval rating for President Trump.
Then Beto O’Rourke’s rally in Texas was an omen. It tested weirdness. Weirdness lost. For a long time, the draft Beto movement said America wanted this stuff.  Beto’s competing rally drew about 900 people compared to Trump’s 35,000+. Beto offered nothing substantive, and had Mexican flags waving. That was the end any hope that he or his ilk could be elected president.
Something else is causing a shift. Today’s headlines read “major cities are turning into uninhabitable hell holes of open drug use and human waste.” These are cities run by Democrats.
Moreover, the radical rules that Democrats created to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme court are coming back to haunt them. The top 3 Democrats in Virginia are being asked to leave office.

Most experts agree that the Democrat Party has begun to alienate mainstream America. Why don’t they care? I believe it is because of God. I believe we are seeing an answer to prayer. The Bible says, “2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie…”
I am not saying that is a direct fulfillment of those verses. I am saying we are seeing a type of that judgement at work right now. Are we watching a good old fashioned, Old Testament event like when God confused the enemies of Israel and divided them among themselves? I say yes.
Here’s the post where I predicted that this would happen   https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2019/01/24/a-lying-spirit/
You remember the first miracle we saw the night that Trump was elected. Every media outlet except Fox News guaranteed a Clinton victory.  As the evening wore on, a shift began to take place. None of the liberal newscasters could believe it. Soon their dismissive expressions turned to dismay as the seemingly impossible was happening right before their eyes.
Are we watching God give us a second national miracle? As the Mueller investigation stumbles into oblivion with nothing to show for the millions they wasted—as the tide turns in what only a couple of weeks ago seemed a devastating time for Trump and Republicans—are we seeing prayer being answered right before our eyes?
Now is the time for mass soul winning because a threat to our freedom has been set back. This is no time for overconfidence or apathy. New threats are coming. This is a moment to seize through prayer and action.

 

The One Thing

The Founding Fathers had one grave suspicion. It towered above every other concern they carried. They worked tirelessly to create a document that would forever prevent the monster they dreaded most.  It was the galvanizing passion of everyone from Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, to Thomas Jefferson.
Of course, we know they loved liberty. But the Constitution was not just born from their love of freedom, but also their suspicion and dread of something else. That is why they created checks and balances to prevent this horror from happening. What is it?
Before I even tell you what it is, allow me put socialism in an early grave. It has never worked. Venezuela is the current poster child for this. (And please don’t cite Sweden; Swedes will tell you they are a free market economy).
Socialism always destroys incentive to achieve. 100% of the time that socialism has been tried, it has punished tax payers in favor of freeloaders.  Benjamin Franklin knew this way back when, that is why he said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.”
Socialism never leads the poor out of poverty. It always leads nations to a dictatorship. Socialism must become more and more centralized around a tyrant. This is because of the draconian measures that must be taken to keep feeding the debt. That is why you can’t name a fully leftist nation without a dictator.
Socialists never know how to pay for their fantasies. Right now, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her ilk are focused on taxing billionaires. Do you really believe, if they get their way, they will leave you alone? When their programs drain trillions and have sucked the treasury dry—they are going to tax the life out of everyone.  No wonder Margaret Thatcher said, “Socialism doesn’t work because eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
But as compelling as those facts are, they pale beside the central point of this blog. And there’s good reason, socialists never talk about this. It is the chief flaw in their thinking, and it is inescapable.  Here it is: they have a blind trust in the State.

So, socialists like Bernie Sanders would take the money by force and give it to the state. How do they know the State will use it as promised?  Look at the vast corruption and waste of government with checks and balances. Imagine what would happen when socialism does away with that. Socialists naively believe that government will fairly and efficiently distribute the funds that were taken by force from hard working tax payers.
Why would anyone believe that? When has that ever happened? Again, our constitution was written by men who suspected runaway government above all else.  Just ask any socialist why they trust the state so blindly and watch the reaction.
Socialism was Benjamin Franklin’s greatest fear and it hadn’t even been invented yet. Franklin was foretelling the horror of socialism when he said, “once the people learn they can vote money to themselves the republic would be done for.” Trusting a socialist system to handle our money is like asking the weasel to guard the chicken coop.

JESUS WAS NOT A SOCIALIST

In a desperate bid to gain popularity for this ideology, young leftists now claim Jesus was a socialist.  In this blog, I aim to show you why that is an impossible and illogical claim.

Let’s not waste time reading an economist’s definition of socialism.  Since socialism has never worked, it is not entitled to an intellectual definition.  But some say that Denmark is proof that socialism works.

However There is a reason the prime minister of Denmark stated in 2015 at the Kennedy School of Government, “I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore, I would like to make one thing clear: Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”

One of the best descriptions of socialism is this one from Kayleigh Mc Enany who said, “In the last century, socialism and communism proved to be bankrupt ideologies that crippled economies, impoverished millions, destroyed personal freedom, brought dictators to power, sparked wars and turned millions of people into refugees fleeing their home countries to seek freedom in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Nations in Eastern Europe abandoned the failed ideologies. The Soviet Union broke up. And even Russia and China were forced to adopt some free market practices to improve their economies and the lives of their people.”

To see what I mean ask any socialist this one question: How are you going to pay for it? Prepare the blank stare.  Here’s Jesus on that issue:  Luke 14: 28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, 30 saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’

Jesus would heartily condemn any scheme that is oblivious to cost.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposes Medicare for all (Bernie Sanders’ last proposed plan along these lines cost an additional $1.4 trillion per year), a federal jobs guarantee, tuition free college for everyone, repealing the First Amendment, abolishing ICE, and government spending to end an oil-based economy. She’s a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, a group so radical that their New York branch proposes abolishing profits.

Refusing to face the cost is a cornerstone of Bernie Sanders’ road show.  Take for example his fantasy about Medicare for everyone.  Even a left-leaning study group admitted it would cost $34 trillion.  Doubling everyone’s taxes would not make a dent in this single program.

(Did you know that Sanders was once kicked out of a commune for refusing to work?  How against work must you be when hippies think you are lazy?)

But there is the dark side of socialism that is in total opposition to Jesus.  Jesus taught giving—heart giving.  Socialism kills the grace of giving.

Dorothy Sayers, a close friend of C.S. Lewis, and an Anglican Theologian said this, “The difference is, with the true church support 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.

Jesus said, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” -Luke 6:38  He taught giving from the heart not forced redistribution of wealth.

Ben Shapiro summed it up, “Socialism is an Immoral, evil, unfair, discriminatory and disgusting system.  “Socialism is bad because socialism is tyranny. Not ‘it’s an aspect of tyranny.’ Socialism itself is tyranny.”   How could Jesus be a socialist?

NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND WITH THE PRESIDENT

Evangelical leaders hailed Trump as a type of King Cyrus.  Now they are bailing on him because they can’t take the heat.   Just when he needs the church the most they abandon ship.

Fellow preachers, do we need to be reminded about the miracle we saw on election night?  For weeks, we were told he had no chance to win.  Have you forgotten how close we came to a nuclear winter called Hillary?

Do we need to be reintroduced to the obvious?  Look at who hates him, and you will find every reason to stand with him.  The same people that hate Israel, hate Trump.  The same people who want to kill Trump, want to kill the unborn.  The same people that want to silence Trump, want to silence the church.

Pastor, his enemies are your enemies.  Those who want to stop his policies, also want to stop your vision.

He tweets.  Get over it!  When virtually every news outlet lies about him…how else will he get the truth out?

He is rough and crude.  So, what?  Draining the swamp in Washington is not the job for your breathy voiced yoga instructor.   Trump is the strong medicine God chose.

He has enraged all the usual suspects:  Teacher’s unions, socialist hippies, gas bag college professors, and all the cuckoo caucuses infesting our halls of government.

I want to remind my esteemed yet timid colleagues our children are getting a nutty education.  Life doesn’t hand out participation trophies.  Life won’t let you retreat to your safe place.  Do you honestly believe that the drivel doled by leftists in the name of “education” will teach hard work, perseverance, and character?

Trump’s determination to make us strong in a hostile world is condemned as “nationalism.”  His campaign to make education rational is condemned as “out of date.”  Only drug addled moonbeams can find fault with common sense.

Our morally bankrupt leaders don’t know how to solve problems.  My generation put a man on the moon—this generation put a man in the girl’s bathroom.   I am not attacking transgender people. I am illustrating how—when it comes to priorities—liberalism rots the brain.  With the life-threatening problems we face they focus on this?

In the next 90 days we will see the most blatant attack—in our history—on everything we value as believers.

The last thing President Trump should feel right now is that he is alone.  He must feel the fervent prayers of the Body of Christ.  He must hear your voice supporting his valiant moves to unwind the snake Obama wrapped around the throat of our democracy.

Dear preacher did you support Trump because of a fad fever?  Are you silent because of the backlash?  If you believe Trump is a miracle, and a type of King Cyrus, then act like it!  Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.  Don’t chicken out now that the heat is on.

I never voted for Trump because I heard some goose-bump prophecy.  I came to my decision in prayer.  I studied history.  I saw us sinking into the same quicksand that ended prior nations.  I looked at our choices and it was crystal clear that Trump was not just the best choice—he was the only choice.  He still is.

5 REASONS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT TRUMP

The enemies of Trump suffer from short term memory loss.  They salivate every time he goes through a crisis.  “This is it. He’s finished.”  How many times must I tell you—he thrives on crisis—he wins when he loses—he has a resilience not of this earth. Stop pinning your hopes on his demise; it’s a spin class in futility. Here are 5 reasons why.

5 REASONS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT DONALD TRUMP

By Mario Murillo

He will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured.  The next four years and more are his.  Hate me, laugh at me, despise my writing…it does not matter, he will survive.

To all who support Trump, there are 5 reasons for you not to worry.  I am not even going to get spiritual about it.  I am not going to give you a glassy stare, feign some prophetic moment, and speak in a breathy tone.  Just the facts.

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.

Moreover, Americans have a deep sense of fair play.  They go for the underdog.  Our people see the flagrant, wanton and disgraceful attacks on Trump by the media.  They are giving him a break for that.  They also understand his rookie mistakes, he is not a politician… we didn’t want a politician, remember?

Here’s the tragic part for his haters…his base still believes he loves America and wants to make her great again.

2. It’s the economy, oh thou lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind. Unemployment is at a 16-year low, and the consumer sentiment levels are at near record highs. When all the background noise settles, and the voter, with a good paying job, stands before the lever to vote—the thought of returning to an Obama economy will horrify.

3. He 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 even the smallest backtracking like his recent ousting of Chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon, or just the passage of time.”

4. The other side still looks way worse. Two men trapped in the woods are suddenly charged by a bear. One man takes off barefoot the other stops to put on his shoes.  The runner asks why are you doing that?  The other replies,  I only need to be faster than you.

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’ economy from Mars plays well only because pot has been legalized on campus.  Maxine Waters is a VOTE FOR TRUMP  machine.  Nancy Pelosi is, well, Nancy Pelosi.

5. Millions are praying for our nation. I do not agree with everything Trump does. If he asked me I would have some strong words on certain things.  What I cannot deny are these things:

He put a conservative in the Supreme Court.  He stands with Israel.  He is against abortion.  He wants to remove the hideous Johnson Amendment that took away freedom of speech from preachers.  He wants to secure the border.  He is working to stop other nations from abusing us and harming us.

Thoughtful believers see past the fog.  They see what I see, they are praying for his protection, for wisdom and for God’s  favor.   Those prayers will be answered.

Who am I to say this last part?  Mr. President, shake off the distractions and remember the message that put you in the White House.  Keep on making America Great Again.  The rest will take care of itself.

Hillary Already Building Obama’s Third Term

 

Looking to lay the groundwork for her presidency if she wins the White House in November, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton named several veterans of President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration for her transition team.

Hillary Already Building Obama’s Third Term

By Luciana Lopez

Ken Salazar, a former interior secretary and U.S. Senator from Colorado, will lead a team of four co-chairs including one-time national security adviser Tom Donilon and Neera Tanden, a former Obama aide who now leads the progressive Center for American Progress think-tank, the Clinton campaign said.

The other co-chairs are former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and Maggie Williams, director of Harvard’s Institute of Politics, the campaign said in a statement.

The announcement came as Clinton has gained momentum in the opinion polls against Republican rival Donald Trump, whose campaign has struggled after he made a string of controversial remarks since formally winning his party’s nomination last month.

Clinton leads Trump in the Nov. 8 presidential election by more than 5 percentage points in a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll released on Friday. The current RealClearPolitics average of polls shows her 6.7 points ahead.

Clinton has been a former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady and her transition team includes old names from her long tenure in Washington, some of whom have also served Obama.

Tanden, who played a key role in shaping Obama’s health care overhaul, is a longtime friend and adviser to Clinton who worked on her Senate campaign. Williams was the 1992 transition director for Clinton when she became first lady, and then her chief of staff in the White House when Bill Clinton was president.

Two policy advisers on the campaign, Ed Meier and Ann O’Leary, will also move full time to the transition team.

Heather Boushey, the executive director of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, will be the chief economist, the campaign said in a statement. Boushey has advised the campaign on economic policy.

Transition teams oversee personnel appointments and help develop an administrative framework during the period between the November election and the inauguration in January, to make it easier for a new president to begin implementing policy agendas.

Trump, a New York businessman who has never held elected office, picked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to head his own transition team in May.

More establishment Republicans, alarmed by Trump’s inability or unwillingness to rein in his provocative remarks, have distanced themselves from the candidate in recent weeks. The Wall Street Journal, a leading conservative voice, said in an editorial on Monday that he should fix his campaign in the next three weeks or hand over to his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence.

Trump drew heavy criticism after engaging in a prolonged spat with the parents of a Muslim U.S. Army captain killed in Iraq. Last week, he suggested gun rights activists could take action against Clinton, a statement critics found alarming but which he later said was aimed at rallying votes against her.

Trump also called Obama and Clinton the “co-founders” of Islamic State, a false claim he later said was sarcastic but did not wholly abandon.

Despite Clinton’s lead in polls, Obama warned Democrats against over confidence, telling a fundraising gathering on Monday in Massachusetts, “If we are not running scared until the day after the election, we are going to be making a grave mistake.”

 

Is this the video ad that will finish her?

 

Is this AD devastating enough to finish her campaign for President?  See for yourself…

 

 It does not take a prophet to predict that Hillary will do irreparable harm.  That likely hood is well supported by a shipload of scandals, criminal acts and an endless trail of lies.    No sane person believes that she will automatically reverse course and be a decent competent president.

Hillary will destroy America with stunning finality.   For anyone pining to see the demise of America…Hillary is the ideal next step.  She is Obama 3.0…and something worse.

 

How she is worse is seen in a simple comparison.  Obama is a malice-driven ideologue.  His passion is to dismantle the United States.  His hate for America, Christianity and Israel informs every policy.

if she wins

Hillary is not an ideologue.  There are no code, any manifesto or core beliefs with this one.   She lusts for power.  She will say and do anything in order to hold on to power.  Even her marital martyrdom to a serial adulterer is all for show to keep her in the game.

If she is elected president there are 4 things that will happen.  There is no maybe in this—these 4 things are guaranteed to take place.

 Economic collapse: She will continue secular progressive bloodletting.  She will increase addiction to government handouts.   We are nearing $20 trillion in debt.  Under her influence we will reach economic critical mass:  a debt we can never pay off.  America’s standard of living will never recover.

Moral nuclear winter:   Islam and immorality will enjoy widespread appeal as despair overtakes the nation.    The rights of Churches, Christian hospitals and colleges will be wiped out.  Free speech will evaporate.  Believers will be unable to move up in corporations or will be fired for their faith.    She will also abandon Israel with the same heartless ease that she abandoned the Americans in Benghazi.

Violence and death will overtake our children:   Discard morals—throw God out—honor debauchery and you will turn entire urban areas into killing fields.  The disregard that Obama engendered toward police will become outright rejection of law and order under Hillary.  Crimes will not be reported.  Guns will be confiscated leaving the average citizen utterly helpless.

She will also import criminals and terrorists.  Obama opened the borders—she will open the floodgates.  The cops will be hog-tied and violent offenders will avoid prosecution.

We will lose our Constitution:  Hillary has already boasted that she will exceed Barack Obama’s use of executive orders.  She will add justices to the Supreme Court that favor her mission to sidestep the constitution of the United States when it interferes with her ambitions.    She has repeatedly said that she wants to rewrite parts of the Constitution.

If she wins—historians will not ask “how did Barack Obama get elected” or even “how on earth did they reelect him?”  They will ask: “Why did they guarantee the death of the nation by electing Hillary Clinton?”
