THE LEFT

Global warming, Russian collusion, White Supremacy/Racism—the trifecta of the Left—the constant drum beat of the “woke.” Always screamed about very loudly, but never defended by rational conversation or facts. Their endless plaintive cry, body language, and screeching confirm the sad, sad truth that emotion rules over substance and logical reason.

Global warming.  The myth of Climate Change took a hit today from an unlikely source: Joel N. Myers, Founder and CEO of AccuWeather.com.  He stated, “There is no evidence so far that extreme heat waves are becoming more common because of climate change, especially when you consider how many heat waves occurred historically compared to recent history.”

Hysterics are the order of the day for the Left, prompting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to say that the world will end in 12 years.  Yet, the Loony Left wants to prosecute anyone who doubts their weather claims. They want oppressive policies that would limit freedom and even imprison detractors of their theories. They are not trying to fix anything, they are trying to take total control through myths.

They will fly their polluting jets to conferences that conclude that you are a vile person for not changing your lifestyle and limiting your carbon footprint.

Russia collusion. The people who live in the districts that Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Gerrold Nadler represent must not need better schools, more jobs, clean water, stronger law enforcement or anything you normally elect someone to work for. These political hacks are literally doing nothing but chasing a hoax. They are deranged in their wish for Trump to be impeached. How the people in these districts can tolerate this is truly dumbfounding. I say again, they are doing nothing for you, while they chase a crime that simply doesn’t exist.  25 months and 25 million dollars later, there is no collusion. Yet, these three demand further investigations.

White Supremacy: They say White Supremacy fuels the mass shootings.  Let’s look at what the media will not tell you. Connor Betts gunned down nine people and injured dozens more in Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday, and this warped loner declares himself, in his notebook, to be a servant of ‘evil incarnate’ and rants about everything from schizophrenia to satanic rituals and massacres.

The pages read, in part: “I am the servant of the serpent evil incarnate, flesh consumer, light destroyer, fueled by hate, rage (is) my strength, distrust (is) my shield.”

But, this mass murderer also supported Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and ANTIFA. The media buries the news of a left-wing mass shooter because it doesn’t advance the narrative of White Supremacy and who Trump supporters really are.

Then, the Left cites economic injustice and poverty in the inner city as proof of White Supremacy. The only problem is, they have been in charge of these neighborhoods—they have spent the money—they have controlled the people. If this is their evidence, then White Supremacy either doesn’t exist or they are the White Supremacists.

Show me a major U.S. city run by Democrats for decades, and I will show you a city in decay, filled with crime, murder, drugs, and poverty. Example: Cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore, where every week there are mass shootings that dwarf the mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton.  Yet, the national news outlets never report them.  Currently, in Democrat run Chicago, there are 51 criminals who have been charged with first degree murder, who have been put under “house arrest.”  The message: Murder someone, and the worst that can happen to you is: you will be sent to your room.

CHICAGO, IL – DECEMBER 31: Residents, activists, and friends and family members of victims of gun violence march down Michigan Avenue carrying nearly 800 wooden crosses bearing the names of people murdered in the city in 2016 on December 31, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Nearly 800 people have been murdered in the city this year and more than 4000 shot as the city copes with its most violent year in two decades. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

Is the Left trying to fix any problem that actually exists? The answer is a deafening, NO. They are far too busy creating problems. Their victims so far are:

 The nuclear family: A source of social stability and well-being for thousands of years. They shattered it with everything from shaming moms who wanted to stay home, redefining marriage, gender fluidity, drag queen story hours, gender-free bathroom crusades, and the oppression of churches. The list could go on and on.

Economic opportunity: The Left has never met a tax or a new regulation they didn’t like. Bloating government to strangle small business is their stock-in-trade. Given a free hand, their economic policies have always led to recession.

The human spirit: Convincing minority youth that they are victims destroys hope and incentive. The Left has turned self-pity into an art form. It was inevitable that they would worship Socialism. Socialism at its heart is for those who believe they can’t make it on their own without food stamps, free cell phones, and the bottomless government grab bag. They have been convinced they will not survive without these programs.

Is the Left trying to eradicate poverty? About as much as the drug dealer is trying to eradicate addiction. It is only by inducing fear, self-pity, and entitlement, that they maintain control.

America has been taken over by a Leftist spirit that is the antithesis of everything America was founded on. We are not engaged in a debate between the ideologies of the Right or the Left—we are in a war between addiction, degradation and atheism versus  liberty, decency, and a future.

Look at them. Do you see solutions, inspiration, openness, or compassion?  No you do not. You see a Party of delusional Don Quixotes who are tilting at windmills, while they trample honor, truth, and decency in their quest for a nonexistent cause.

Yet, in this fog of delusion, there are some hopeful signs of life.  Roughly 400 pastors and faith leaders will descend on Lynchburg, Virginia later this week as two major evangelical forces unite together in the beginning efforts of a 2020 national ground game aimed at restoring Judeo-Christian principles across the country and mobilizing an evangelical army of pastors to lead the way.

The closed-door, two-day event will be held at Liberty University, one of the largest evangelical universities in the country and is organized by the American Renewal Project, led by influential political mechanic David Lane. They’re bringing in the pastors for the affair, many of whom are expected to take part in a political training session as they mull over whether to run for local or statewide office.

Pray for an awakening like this to spread to churches all over America!

Pray like you know what is at stake!

 

 

IS THIS THE END?

Is this the end? Sure looks like it.  The most rain in American history fell on Houston.  The most intense hurricane ever recorded barreled into Florida—another one is right behind.  The strongest earthquake in a hundred years jolted Mexico—all this in the last few weeks.

Equally terrifying, is the barrage of “prophecies” assaulting the church.  Christians are navigating a minefield of conflicting messages.  I see twin dangers: those who are horror-struck, and those who have become complacent.

There are those who have panicked, and are selling, hoarding and escaping to secret cabins.  Then, there are those who are dulled by a constant stream of false alarms who do nothing to prepare for the days ahead.

Separating fact from fiction is the duty of every disciple of Jesus.

  1. Fact: Global warming has not been proven by science. It is irresponsible to say we have entered a cataclysmic weather cycle. Did you know the middle ages were warmer than today? We don’t hear that because scientists are intimidated to suppress facts that contradict the warming agenda.  Weather has been like this before. It has been even worse.

Scaring people makes money, and is a great way to control nations.  Some of the most outspoken warmers are jaw-dropping hypocrites.  Al Gore owns an energy guzzling house, flits around in SUVs and exhaust spewing jets, enlarging his carbon footprint, while he orders you to sacrifice.

Yes, the weather is crazy.  I am broken hearted over what people are suffering.  But to say that weather is about to destroy the earth—when you have no proof—adds to the fear and suffering.

  1. Fact: Any preacher who sets a date for the end of the world is in error. Jesus said, “Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Period.

Don’t get me wrong, there are some sincere good men who are teaching about September 23rd but still, it’s unscriptural to set a date.

On the other hand, there are misguided preachers who use fear to sell books and as click bait for videos. But let me issue a challenge to you prophets of doom: I want to win souls, so give me your buildings, television equipment, and all of your assets.  If you are right, and the world ends on that day what good will they be to you?

I promise you folks, not one—not even the most avid doomsday prophet—will hand over their wealth.  Hmmm.

  1. Fact: God is judging America. It’s just not the way you think. Climate fury is not judgment on America. But there is a judgment going on…and it’s terrible.  Worse than hurricanes.

If a man defiantly leaps to his death from a tall building thinking he’s Superman—it’s not God judging him, it’s gravity.  America is feeling the consequences of her sin.

Jesus did warn us of global warming so much as the disaster of moral cooling:  Matthew 24:12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.  When love grows cold, a society becomes miserable.  That misery is the judgement.

Our payment for our sins began in earnest in the 1960’s.  When we banned prayer and legalized abortion, our march toward misery began.

Forget hurricanes, we have reaped the whirlwind of wickedness.  It is demonstrated in pandemic addiction, mental illness, racism, and suicide.

Paul nailed it.  He did not say climate would make the end times dangerous—he said it would be man’s moral condition.  2 Timothy 3: 2 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.   Note the phrase: For men will be.

America is experiencing the storm surge of sin.

-When a people rebel against God they heap to themselves wicked leaders—leaders who lead them to moral destruction.  For years America has been led by God-hating politicians, vile celebrities, atheistic educators, and demented pop artists.

-Humanism and secular progressivism replaced God in American society turning us into a nation of misery.  Anne Graham said, “We told God to get out—get out of our laws, our government, education, entertainment and even our churches—and like a gentleman, He did.”

All of the places God used to inhabit in our culture became vacant shells—toxic waste dumps.  We lost our power to resist addiction, rage, and every natural emotion.  We became instantly offended by stupid things.

Now we are seeing the final judgment on a culture: Total division—which left unchecked, leads to civil war.

You want the real signs of disaster?  Don’t look to blood moons but the rivers of blood on the streets of Chicago—there’s your sign.  Look at what today’s comedians think is funny—there’s your sign.   Look at the grisly and unspeakable crimes in the headlines —there’s your sign.  Look into the eyes of our children, see the despair and fear of the future—there’s your sign.

Forget hurricanes!  We have reaped the whirlwind of wickedness!

One real part of God’s judgement on America is false preachers.  2 Timothy 4:

“3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

The Word of God says end time perversion includes a change in Christians.  Their appetite would change.  They would despise sound teaching in favor of soothing lies that permit them to be immoral.  Such teaching is designed by Satan to seduce, weaken and deceive so that God’s own people would be caught in a trap. It worked.

Repentance is the 2,000-pound elephant in the room.  We talk around it.  We make fun of it.  We are distracted by voices that tantalize us with God’s goodies.  How does telling people they need not repent give them hope? Even when we finally think apocalyptically, it’s not our sin we look at, it’s monster movie signs in the sky.  God help us to confess our sin so we can truly discern the times.

Is this the end of the world…well, I have plans for September 24th–not cancelling them.  Is this the end of the world? It is, not because of weather but because we did not repent.

He is at war with us.

The proof America is divine is she survived Obama.  The testament to his abomination is that she nearly didn’t.  He is on his way out so why should I bother to speak out about him anymore?  Here is the reason:

He hates America.  He hates Israel.  He hates Christians.  Those three statements are not my reasons for speaking out about him—in fact, they are bait to illustrate my first point.

People will savage those remarks.  They will tell me that I am lying.  They will boast that there is not a shred of evidence to support what I have said.  Aha!  There you have it…it’s the extreme delusion of Obama, the media and his followers that provoked me to write this.

Listen to him!  In the last days of his debacle.  Per him, he did nothing wrong.  He is the best president since Lincoln.  He did more to protect Israel than any other president.  He created millions of jobs.  He never lied.  He stabilized the Arab world.  He improved race relations in America.  He would have beaten Donald Trump.

The delusion that Obama did a good job—when he was far and away the worst president ever—is a threat to our future.   You see, Obama is not going to go away.  He will continue to make mischief because he is at war with us.   Now read what I said back in November of 2015.

He is at war with us.

By Mario Murillo  November 17th, 2015

The American pastor Saeed Abedini–held hostage by Iran was set to fly to freedom but they had to wait for another plane to arrive from America first.  That plane was most certainly carrying $400 million in cash sent from Obama to Iran.  There is also great reason to believe that money will end up in the hands of those who would destroy Israel and America.

In an interview about his release Saeed Abedini was asked, “Were they effectively waiting for the money to come in before they then let you take off?” He answered, “Yeah. They didn’t talk about money. They just told us about the — they told me about the plane. … So, the reason that they said you’re here in the airport is — was just because we are waiting for another plane.”

The Wall Street Journal says “But U.S. officials also acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.

How can this be happening without criminal charges?  Because the White House has rigged the system. Obama is at war with us.  Hillary will continue his war on us.

However, this article is not about Obama. He is mentioned in it.  He is accused in it—he is the villain of it—but it is not about him.  This article is about you and me.  It is about facing the most horrible fact—we have had to face—since the Civil War.

The man who occupies the White House is at war with us.  He is not at war against ISIS.  He is not at war against black poverty.  He is not at war against unemployment.  He is not at war against anything that threatens you.  He is at war with you.

The man who has the most power over Americans is actively working to destroy Americans.  That is a bitter pill to swallow—but swallow it we must.

But how do I convince you that he is at war against us?  I struggled with this for a long time. Then I found an analogy that explains Obama’s destructive style.  He acts like a man that has murdered his wife and is trying to cover it up.

The husband is always the first suspect—no matter what.  Detectives use a different set of eyes than you and I.  The adoring faithful husband is defended by family, friends and neighbors.  He has the perfect alibi.  He has no history of violence.

However, the police will not rule him out if he begins to act strangely.  Say, he shows little sense of loss.  He talks more about himself than he does his dead wife.  If she is missing, he seems to be going through the motions of trying to find her.

Obama’s reaction to the mass murder in Paris is a perfect example.  It is the same, tired, brain-numbing non response to terror.  He is sorry, but not really.  He keeps up the appearance of a caring husband who—having done away with his wife—feigns sorrow.   He has done this after every terror attack.

Obama-Paris-Shooting-1-620x400

Sherlock Holmes said, “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”   When you eliminate the impossible about Obama here is what is left: He is motivated by hate.  He hates America.  He hates Christianity.  He hates Israel.

All of his policies carry this one universal criterion: How much it will damage the people I hate.  Use that formula and all of the lights will suddenly go on.  He blocks energy independence, a secure border, a jobs program or anything else that would better our lives.

His foreign, environmental, economic, immigration, and educational, policies fail by design—not incompetence.  He ruined our healthcare; enflames racial division; foments student unrest, and endangers the lives of police officers by design.

He bullies Israel but gives billions to her mortal enemies.

Here is what is really chilling: Even after it was proven that the killers in Paris were Syrian refugees, he will still force us to take in 100,000 Syrian refugees. Is he actually working toward terrorism here at home?

His zeal to end America Israel and Christianity is so great—I seriously believe he would wreak havoc—declare martial law, stay in office beyond his current term—to finish the job.

If you are a true Christian and you want to stop Obama…then stop doing these things:

1.Stop denying that he is at war against you and your children’s future. Face it! How can you do what Christ wants you to do against this evil if you will not admit the evil?

We cannot stop Obama unless we face the fact that he is at war with us. All God-fearing, freedom-loving people must unify against him.  The unity and resolve required to stop him can come only after we face the ugly truth.

2. Quit saying all we need to do is pray.   No one ever prayed like Jesus.  No one ever understood prayer Like Jesus.  No one valued prayer like Jesus.  And yet, He did not just pray.  He went forth in the power of the Spirit.  He rebuked the king—He turned over the tables of the money changers and He verbally blistered the Pharisees.  He did not just pray—He acted on His prayers.

Well,of course we need to pray. I intercede daily.  But to say that all we should do is pray is a cop out.  If you believe that the sole response to Obama should be prayer then you are doing a disservice—not only to America—but to prayer.   Prayer always ends in acts of obedience.

In Acts 4:29 Peter prayed “Lord look on their threats and grant to your servants that with all boldness we may speak Your Word.”  Try this the next time you pray—Ask for boldness and guidance.  Ask to know your place in stopping the war on Israel, Christianity and everything that made America great.  After you pray…you have to take a stand.

slander3. Stop supporting Christian compromise. Why your pastor refuses to preach against the crimes of Obama is not the question—why you still attend that church is the question.

 (Special note: I do not believe that the Sunday pulpit should be a constant flow of tirades against Obama.  It should be well-placed and relevant to the instruction of the people.  It should be done to inform believers about why we believe what we believe so they can answer the persecution of the culture.   What I am saying is that it is odd if you do not know where your pastor stands on these issues.)

Your time, talent and money should not be going to the compromised church.  Shift your support. Begin to strengthen the arm of those who are risking all to oppose this tyrant.

4. Stop abusing love. It is not hateful to oppose Obama—it is love. To be silent in face of hatred is hatred itself.  When we remain silent we do not practice love; we hate God’s Word; we hate holiness; we hate truth; we hate sacrifice and courage.

Stop worrying about what millennials think.  Stop worrying about our public persona.  When the truth comes out a grateful generation will thank us for intervening against destruction.

5. Quit saying “I am not going to do anything because it won’t make any difference.” Revivals can be traced to a single person. Do not say that great movements cannot begin with small groups in unpromising circumstances.  Indeed, that is exactly how all great movements have been born.

You have come to the kingdom for such a time as this.  You cannot waste one more moment in fear or self-pity.  God can take your simple prayer and willingness and add His amazing power and wisdom to your endeavors.

What if God has been waiting a hundred years for you to come along—discard fear and doubt—take up the sword of the Lord—and plunge it into the heart of darkness?

HALLELUJAH!

The prayers of the saints have been answered.  Hallelujah!  Political Correctness is done. Hallelujah!  The swamp will be drained.  Hallelujah!  The evangelical vote is back!  Hallelujah!   Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah!  

HALLELUJAH!

By Mario Murillo

The prayers of the saints have been answered.  Hallelujah!  Political Correctness is done.  Hallelujah!  The evangelical vote is back!  Hallelujah!  Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah!  The Swamp will be drained.  Hallelujah!  The justice that our government refused to deliver came from the people.  Hallelujah!   Abortion has a new enemy.  Hallelujah!   A leader will work for us and not our enemies.  Hallelujah!   The Supreme Court will be saved.  Hallelujah!

The people have repudiated the Obama legacy.  Hallelujah!  Obamacare will be replaced.  Hallelujah!   America has been spared.  Hallelujah!  Instead of filth, there will be faith in the White House.  Hallelujah!  The House, the Senate, and the President will work together for hard working Americans.  Hallelujah!  Outreach ministries are safe from the IRS.  Hallelujah!  A corrupt mainstream media has been discredited and neutralized. Hallelujah!

When I first began blogging about Donald Trump 18 months ago, pastors told me I could not preach in their church anymore.  A Christian television network banned me.   I was called racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic and many names I won’t publish.

donald-trump

Even more insidious, were minister friends close to me who accused me of abandoning my calling.  They said I needed to be winning souls and not speaking out politically.  Instead, I did both.  I exhausted myself winning souls, and prophesying against the wickedness in Washington.

I went to God every day.  I trusted Him!   He repeatedly said, “keep going son.  Keep speaking out!”  When old sources of finances dried up, God opened new ones.  When pulpits closed to me new doors opened. 

To the bitter end, most preachers refused to stand and be counted.   That is something they must live with.  However, a remnant declared the truth and faced the onslaught.  I am so proud of the voices that spoke out!   I am no hero.   I am but one of many who simply obeyed.

I give all of the glory for my strength, my fellow warriors, and for this miracle for America to Jesus Christ.

Today, you are indeed, witnessing a singular miracle in American history.  Donald Trump faced insanely impossible resistance.  He was pronounced dead again and again.  Today, he stands with humility, on the cusp of making America Great Again. Hallelujah!

Let thousands see your Hallelujah.  Leave a comment and say Hallelujah!

Today, you’ll hear terrifying things about our government. But it may be a miracle.

 

Today, you’ll hear terrifying things about our government. But it may be a miracle.

By Mario Murillo

In the next few hours you are going to hear some truly terrifying things about our government.  Today you will find out things you were never supposed to know.  An avalanche of facts will confirm some of our worst fears and God’s great mercy.

Remember when you thought the president was supposed to protect us?  Remember when you thought the Department of Justice was supposed to bring justice?  Remember when you thought the State Department was supposed to keep us safe?

Well sit down…because here comes the truth: We have not had a democracy for 8 years.  We have been led by a junta—a crime family.  They have finally been outed.

Here is what you already know:

CNN fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton.

George Soros owns voting machines.

Barack Obama ordered the FBI not to indict Hillary and stopped them from convening a Grand Jury to indict the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton campaign paid people to start fights at Trump rallies.

Facebook, Google and Twitter conspired to manipulate information to place Hillary in a good light and Trump in a bad light.  They lied and censored to advance her campaign.

We know that 65% of all Americans believe Hillary has broken federal law.

We know that 53% believe it was wrong not to indict her.

Today you are going to find out how deep and wide this collusion really is.  You get to meet the many tentacled beast.

These people did not merely blur the Separation of Powers Act of the Constitution…they removed it.  They formed a legislative monopoly—one that pools power and freely operates above the law.

One of the first to discover this was Bernie Sanders.  Only, they scared him so badly that he is terrified to tell us the truth—he even turned on his own supporters.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice, the State Department, the IRS and our mass media, newspapers, magazines and social media including Google, Facebook and Twitter all work together.  They collaborate… they plan things.

hillary-and-obama-pic-575x380

This was how John Podesta could tell Hillary every move the DOJ was making in advance.  Then it all came out in the open.

We now know that at least 5 nations have hacked and now own Hillary Clinton’s emails.

We now know there is a 99% chance that Bill and Hillary Clinton will be indicted for criminal activity involving hundreds of millions of dollars.  They are under suspicion for selling influence to enrich themselves.  They sold favors to nations that are sworn enemies of the U.S.!

We are still at the tip of the iceberg.  James Comey has been aware of this information for almost a year.  He has even more information…enough to fill an ocean liner.   He finally caved and sent a letter to Congress to announce he was reopening the Clinton email investigation.

Why did Comey brave the wrath of the ruling family?  Because  “Rogue”  FBI agents couldn’t take the filth, lies and abuse of power on the American people anymore.  They forced Comey’s hand.  These agents are true American heroes.

While I do not condone stealing emails, we must admit that WikiLeaks was key in finding out things we never would have known.  If it were not for Fox News you would not see it on television.

Today you will be hearing things even Thomas Wolfe could not put in a scandalous novel.  Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might as you hear the horrifying reality that God is trying to spare us from.  A tidal wave of information will be coming out within hours.

Again, you were never supposed to find out about this.  I believe this is an answer to the prayers of the saints.  You had better realize you have been given a miracle.  If you and I do not seize this miracle, then we deserve all the tyranny that Hillary will hand out.

Today I believe God has had mercy on us to expose this before the election.  Time to dump Bill and Hillary like nuclear waste…and drain the swamp.

The Shocking Reason millions of born again Christians will still vote for Hillary

The Shocking Reason millions of born again Christians will still vote for Hillary

By Mario Murillo

She is a smooth criminal. She is the consort of a sexual addict.  She is chugging the longest train of scandal and lawlessness in history toward the White House.  Box cars overflow with federal crimes, defilement, unexplained deaths, pathological lies, and an insatiable lust for power.  She wants the savagery of late term abortion.  She believes marriage is between a man and anything.

However, the greatest horror resides in the caboose: She will feed and expand the cancer of Obama’s policies.  Thus, she will turn up the blood-letting of government spending and doom our children.  Our foreign policy will be one big blazing Benghazi. Our Supreme Court will become a left-wing meat grinder. Obamacare is dead; no mind, she will manage the morgue so the corpse putrefies our health care system indefinitely.

Say you wanted to craft the quintessential anti-Christian candidate. Monger a politician that is the most anti-Bible, anti-church, anti-Israel, anti-God human being on the planet: thy name is Hillary Clinton.

Yet, with all of this, millions of born again, holiness, tongue-talking, Bible-thumping Christians are dutifully and catatonically pulling the lever for her.   She has also said that religious beliefs need to be changed.  Think of that…she would change Christian beliefs and millions of Christians will help her do it.

Maybe you’ll do it because you are more feminist, union, or minority than you are Christian.

The article in Dallas Morning News reads: “I am a pro-life Christian woman voting for Hillary.”  The author Shannon Dingle says, “So buckle up, y’all. We’re in for a ride.”  Sadly, I took the ride and it was even murkier by the end than it was at the beginning.

hillaryabortion-1

The polls say 80% percent of all African Americans will vote for Hillary.  Thirty-eight million of them live in the U.S. Do you think for a moment, 80% of the black Christians you know are anti-Bible?

We also know that many Christian white women are for Hillary.  Women who listen to Joyce Meyers, women who attend prophetic conferences, women who pray in tongues…yet, still, they will vote Clinton.

One of the biggest reasons for this breathtaking contradiction will shock you: IT IS MODERN PREACHING. Have you even wondered why your pastor is not warning you that we are about to lose our nation forever?  Have you not noticed the blinding contradiction when your pastor says he believes in the Word of God and then tells you to vote for Hillary?

The preaching that allows believers to act in opposition to their faith comes in many packages.  But they all carry these traits.

  1. It teaches there is a higher standard than the Bible.  This comes at you in all kinds of ways. There is the preaching that omits scripture.  There is the preaching that magically mixes opposing ideas so they fit together in blissful repose, i.e. Chrislam.  You don’t even notice the teaching is not anchored to the Bible.

The Bible may be diminished by a pastor.  They say things like: “I still revere scripture but the modern mind finds it objectionable so we must downplay it.”

Then there are Spirit-filled teachers who imply—or outright say—that personal prophetic words or supernatural encounters trump the Bible.

Is there any wonder millions of Christians sitting under such verbiage lack the moral clarity to do the right thing in this election?

hillary vicious

 

2. It desperately wants cultural acceptance.   So much of the confusing waffling you hear from celebrity pastors is not a conviction; it is a need for acceptance from the culture.  When virtually every news outlet, Hollywood, pop stars and secular universities are in lockstep with Hillary, the pressure to conform is overwhelming.

A pastor tosses his Bible values and suddenly becomes a darling to millions who declare that pastor open-minded, inclusive and tolerant.

Regardless of how glaring the evil, this preaching refuses to offend.  Joel Osteen said to Larry King, “I know Homosexuality is a sin but I am not going to preach it.”

Here is preaching that calculates truth with a wet finger raised to cultural breezes instead of a heart that discerns the wind of the Holy Spirit.

Moral clarity is almost nonexistent. If it is gone from the sermon, small wonder it is gone from the voting booth.

3. It teaches elitism that exempts Christians from consequences.  This pernicious teaching places the Christian above Scripture, above consequence and even above God.

It begins with true statements about the authority of the believer or the wonders of the love and grace of God.  The teacher, seeing the delight he awakens in his audience, increases the dosage beyond Bible limits.

Soon you are hearing that you never have to repent of sin.  You hear of astounding dominion you have over all of the earth.  You are fed a constant diet of how God is so, so into you.

You are too valuable to suffer (like other Christians around the world).  No matter how bad it looks, you do not have to worry or take action because God will simply take care of it all.

Revival becomes “if God wants it” and not “if my people.”

jmOneNationUnderSocialism 001

Will Christians be judged by God for voting for Hillary?  Eric Metaxas not only thinks so…he makes a compelling appeal for voting for Donald Trump:

“How do I squirm out of this horrific conundrum? It’s unavoidable: We who can vote must answer to God for these people, whom He loves. We are indeed our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.

We would be responsible for passively electing someone who champions the abomination of partial-birth abortion, someone who is celebrated by an organization that sells baby parts. We already live in a country where judges force bakers, florists and photographers to violate their consciences and faith—and Mrs. Clinton has zealously ratified this. If we believe this ends with bakers and photographers, we are horribly mistaken. No matter your faith or lack of faith, this statist view of America will dramatically affect you and your children.

For many of us, this is very painful, pulling the lever for someone many think odious. But please consider this: A vote for Donald Trump is not necessarily a vote for Donald Trump himself. It is a vote for those who will be affected by the results of this election. Not to vote is to vote. God will not hold us guiltless.”

Hillary just said this about the new FBI investigation of her: “People Have Already “Factored” In Emails in How They Think about Me.”  She also believes this is true of millions of born Christians.  have factored what she is but they will vote for her anyway.

 

I wrote about Max and Beth to defend Christian Trump supporters

I wrote about Max and Beth to defend Christian Trump supporters

By Mario Murillo

As I write you, 50,000 people have read the blog that mentioned Max Lucado and Beth Moore. Today I want to clear the air about why that happened.

For me to mention the name of a fellow minister is like getting a root canal.  I only do it when all other remedies have been exhausted.  We are family.  We are all on the same team.  Christian unity is a witness to a dying world.

So then why did I put out the blog?  I did it to defend Christians who are going to vote for Trump.

Whether Max and Beth intended it or not, their remarks had the effect—I am being delicate and kind here—of questioning Christians who support Trump.

Max openly wondered how any Evangelical could follow Donald.

Beth did the same to Christian men who support Trump.  She can’t support Trump because he “objectifies women” and she believes he assaulted women.  She can’t see how any Christian man who would support Trump.

But they are both doing something else that really hurts Christians who support Trump: They are being silent about Hillary Clinton.  They have said nothing against her.  More on this later.

Other celebrity Christian leaders are doing much worse.  They have thrown millions of sincere Jesus followers into Hillary’s basket of deplorables.

So let’s talk about Christian Trump supporters.

1.  Many of them are positive thinkers and entrepreneurs. They resonate with Trump’s winners approach to life. These are the church members most likely to give big to a vision or help pay off the building.  They are not the critics and legalistic people that hinder you pastor.

2.  Most Christian Trump supporters are patriotic. They love America.  They believe that we live in the greatest country on earth.  They are angry our laws are being disregarded by secular progressives.  They are angry with pro athletes who disgrace our flag and national anthem.  They stand with cops, the military and first responders.  

3.  The majority of Christian Trump supporters are all about common sense. They believe:

-Our trade deals with other nations make no sense.

-Political correctness is a silly idea that has morphed into a tedious tyranny.

-It makes no sense to judge Trump’s past bankruptcies while ignoring someone who will carry on Obama’s disastrous spending.

-It makes no sense to leave our borders unsecured and allow an influx of criminals.  They have committed of millions of crimes and have killed our children.

-It makes no sense to oppress the church with regulations that force Christians, Churches, and Christian employers to pay for contraceptives and abortions.

-It makes no sense to support a woman who will turn Christian witnessing into a hate crime.

-It makes no sense to reject Trump for statements he made 11 years ago when you have no proof he is not a changed man.  Bill Clinton is not a changed man.  We know from a recent statement by General Colin Powell that Bill Clinton is still committing adultery and Hillary still covers it up.

-It makes no sense to compare Donald’s tax forms to 33,000 emails that Clinton criminally erased—emails that pose a national security threat.

-It makes no sense to deny you are helping Hillary if you don’t vote—or if you vote for a third candidate.  It’s a two-person race.  Trump is the underdog.  He needs every vote he can get, and every vote he does not get, helps her.  You can numb your conscience all you want but facts are facts…if you don’t vote for him, you are helping Hillary.

– It makes no sense to talk about Trump but never talk about Clinton.

I respect both of these Christian leaders and I refuse to engage in a war of words.  Nevertheless, they need to know—innocently or deliberately—millions of sheep feel wounded and betrayed.  As I said before, what hurts them the most it is this: You speak against Trump but remain totally silent about Hillary Clinton.

hillaryabortion-1

 

-You say Trump is rude?  How rude is it to ignore repeated cries for help and send four Americans to their death in Benghazi?   How rude is it to lie—to the parents and family of the slain at their funeral—by blaming their death on a video.

-You reject Trump because you support women?  Hillary has never denied laughing at a 12-year-old girl who was raped.  She has never denied trying to bury the women her husband raped.  She has enriched her foundation with millions from nations that kill women and enslave them.   Hillary Clinton believes it is okay to kill a baby even after nine months of pregnancy.  Abortion is murder but what does killing your baby even if its head is crowning out of the womb do to that child let alone the mother?

WHY, WHY, WHY AREN’T YOU TALKING ABOUT HER?  The believer who supports Trump is horrified by your silence.   They see you tweeting and pontificating about Trump but you offer no answer for the undoing of the Constitution—the trashing of the Supreme Court—the threat to America that Obama and Hillary’s foreign policy has created.They want to know if celebrity Christians live in a bubble.  They wonder, “what is your solution to the national disaster?”  Are you that out of touch with reality?

4. Christian Trump supporters believe voting for him is a moral thing to do:

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 18: Laura Ingraham visits Extra at The Grove on July 18, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Noel Vasquez/Getty Images for Extra)

Laura Ingraham says her support of Trump is an extension of her faith:

“The truth is that those of us who support Trump understand all too well the reality of the choice that faces us, and are doing the best we can to save this country.

On the other hand, not voting for Trump — and hoping that he loses — also represents a moral choice:

It means aligning yourself, at least temporarily, with left-wing nightmares Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and all the other radicals who want Trump to lose.

It means turning a deaf ear to your fellow Americans who can’t take four more years of decline, and who are desperate for new leadership.

It means allowing another four or eight years of flat-lining wages and growth, and high taxes on American businesses.

It means hardening your heart against people those who have spent 40 years trying to stop abortion.

It means doing nothing when The New York Times, and The Washington Post, and every other left-wing outlet mocks and ridicules the Trump supporters as racists and bigots.

It means cheering (silently or not) along with every smear and every snide comment that Hollywood and the media can use to attack Trump’s voters.

That’s the choice the NeverTrumpers have made — a decision to do nothing, to wash their hands of the election, of the Republican Party, of the country itself.

That may represent some people’s version of morality. But it’s not mine.”

5. Christian Trump supporters believe it is all about the Supreme Court:  Columnist Thomas Sowell hit the nail on the head when he said, “The issue is judges that stick to the law versus judges who ignore the law. That is a huge distinction. It is the difference between living in a self-governing democracy and living under tyrants on the bench.”

Through his or her appointments, the next president will determine whether the federal judiciary respects its proper, limited role in our self-governing democracy, or whether we continue to slide ever further toward judicial tyranny. There is no more important issue in this election.   We already know the kind of judges she will nominate.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM

Franklin Graham summed it all up: “A lot of people are slamming evangelicals for supposedly giving Donald J. Trump a pass. That’s simply not true. No one is giving him a pass. I’m certainly not, and I’ve not met an evangelical yet who condones his language or inexcusable behavior from over a decade ago. However, he has apologized to his wife, his family, and to the American people for this. He has taken full responsibility. This election isn’t about Donald Trump’s behavior from 11 years ago or Hillary Clinton’s recent missing emails, lies, and false statements. This election is about the Supreme Court and the justices that the next president will nominate. Evangelicals are going to have to decide which candidate they trust to nominate men and women to the court who will defend the constitution and support religious freedoms. My prayer is that Christians will not be deceived by the liberal media about what is at stake for future generations.”

 

 

Gullible Christians are helping to kill America

 

 

Gullible Christians are helping to kill America

By Mario Murillo

Satan’s masterstroke of deceiving, dividing and diluting Christians in America is now paying off.  He has fooled gullible Christians into helping kill America.

Millions of believers are blind to the disaster a Clinton presidency would be to their jobs, their church and their children.

They have been pickled by preaching that tells them Daddy with take care of everything; America will be okay no matter who you vote for.

Max Lucado tells us God is on the throne and that means that on November 9th, we will be fine.  History, the Bible, and the facts about Hillary Clinton refute this.

God was on the throne when Hitler rose to power.  God was on the throne when Stalin exterminated untold millions.

God is on the throne as Christians all over the world are being martyred by radical Islam.

God is looking for heroes to rise up, by His power, and intervene to save America. He uses people.

If Hillary wins on November 8th, we will not be fine. The Bible says in Proverbs 29:2, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked person rules, the people groan.”  Prepare for years and years of groaning if she wins.

James Riley said: “Texas pastor Max Lucado leads what he calls a ‘red state’ church, but Max has a maxim: ‘I don’t want anybody to know how I vote.’ Max does this to make sure the Democratic voters in his church, the ones who support abortion on demand, Islamo-pandering, and class warfare are not made to feel uncomfortable. However, Max recently broke his neutrality pledge…  According to Max:

‘I would not have said anything about Mr. Trump, never — I would never have said anything if he didn’t call himself a Christian. It’d be none of my business whatsoever to make any comments about his language, his vulgarities, his slander of people, but I was deeply troubled … that here’s a man who holds up a Bible one day, and calls a lady “bimbo” the next.’”

Think on that for a moment. Max closes his eyes to another “Christian,” Barack Obama, who stands foursquare for the slaughter of millions of unborn babies, at your expense, but Donald Trump called a lady a “bimbo?”

 

 

if

Evangelist Beth Moore has also decided to help Hillary.  “Beth Moore is standing in the gap for Hillary.  Beth Moore is breaking away from fellow evangelical leaders/speakers who stand with Donald Trump, saying she can no longer do so after hearing the 2005 recording of his off-the-record conversation with Billy Bush.  Moore suggested that Trump’s words from 11 years ago highlight how men are “objectifying” women today, and she made clear that she will not support Trump over it. She issued a number of tweets on the topic, not one of which criticized Hillary Clinton for the way she has treated the women who allege Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them — women like Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick.” -Awr Hawkins, Britebart News.

The fact is, neither Max nor Beth have said anything about Bill and Hillary Clinton.  So, where is their Christianity when it comes to protecting America from tyranny?

Beth, what is your opinion of Hillary enabling a rapist?  What do you think about her laughing at a 12-year-old girl that was raped?  Why aren’t you talking about that?  If Hillary wins, Bill Clinton will be immoral in the White House. General Colin Powell said, in an email, that Bill Clinton is still committing adultery. What kind of a role model is that for men?

Max, Hillary said she will force religion to change its beliefs.  What are you doing to protect the sheep from that?

Eric Metaxas said, “If Hillary Clinton is elected, the country’s chance to have a Supreme Court that values the Constitution—and the genuine liberty and self-government for which millions have died—is gone. Not for four years, or eight, but forever.”

Instead of raising up an informed electorate who could vote as a moral bloc, the modern pulpit has created gullible Christians—Christians who are about to help Hillary push the nation over a cliff.

 

presidential_debate_2_ft-article-header

Is the motive really about women and love of people? Or is it, once again, political correctness?  Are popular leaders wanting to look good to outsiders, hedging their bet that Hillary is going to win and they will escape the wrath of the new order?  Are they living in denial about the evil that will befall America once she is in the White House?

One of the most amazing and revealing statements Trump ever made—he made to pastors.  He asked them why they let the country get in this condition when—all along—they had the power to get what they wanted.

He told them, “There are 50 million of you, and if you had worked together you could have elected everything from city councilmen, to state Assemblymen, to Congressmen and presidents.”  He is painfully correct.  That is not just a statement of our influence but of our responsibility.

To the basket of Christian gullibles I say this: NOTHING MATTERS MORE IN THIS ELECTION THAN WHAT HILLARY WILL DO TO AMERICA.  SHE WILL FILL THE SUPREME COURT WITH LEFTIST JUDGES—SHE WILL DESTROY OUR ECONOMY—SHE WILL CAUSE A WAR—ALL FORMS OF ABORTION WILL BE LEGAL—AND THE CHURCH IN AMERICA WILL BE SEVERELY CRIPPLED.

We could stop this insanity if we unified against real—not imagined evil.  If we could see our real duty in this election, if we could get over our false sensibilities and hurt feelings, we could save the country.  The great heroes of our faith who witnessed tyranny would grab us and shake to our core if they saw our apathy and naivete in the face of this threat.

TRUMP’S VISION FOR AMERICA

By Peggy Noonan

Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1. 5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur who could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.

peggy_noonan-copy

Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles: A) American interests come first. Always. No apologies. 😎 Maximum firepower and military preparedness. C) Only go to war to win. D) Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies. E) Keep the technological sword razor sharp. F) See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. G) Respect and support our present and past warriors.

Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

Trump makes the point that China ‘s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U.S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S. , once again creating jobs here.

Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S. 394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America . He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for those who are here illegally.

Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1. 6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1. 5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. >From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.

Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed”. He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.

Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock. “ He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare rolls and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

Trump opposes Common Core.

Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a state’s rights issue, not a federal issue.

Trump supports the death penalty.

Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm. . . looks like he believes in horse sense! ). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles , I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean ), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.

He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation. Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America . And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.”

The Climate Snow Job

The Climate Snow Job

A blizzard! The hottest year ever! More signs that global warming and its extreme effects are beyond debate, right? Not even close.

On the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Jan. 23.

An East Coast blizzard howling, global temperatures peaking, the desert Southwest flooding, drought-stricken California drying up—surely there’s a common thread tying together this “extreme” weather. There is. But it has little to do with what recent headlines have been saying about the hottest year ever. It is called business as usual.

Surface temperatures are indeed increasing slightly: They’ve been going up, in fits and starts, for more than 150 years, or since a miserably cold and pestilential period known as the Little Ice Age. Before carbon dioxide from economic activity could have warmed us up, temperatures rose three-quarters of a degree Fahrenheit between 1910 and World War II. They then cooled down a bit, only to warm again from the mid-1970s to the late ’90s, about the same amount as earlier in the century.

Whether temperatures have warmed much since then depends on what you look at. Until last June, most scientists acknowledged that warming reached a peak in the late 1990s, and since then had plateaued in a “hiatus.” There are about 60 different explanations for this in the refereed literature.

That changed last summer, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) decided to overhaul its data, throwing out satellite-sensed sea-surface temperatures since the late 1970s and instead relying on, among other sources, readings taken from the cooling-water-intake tubes of oceangoing vessels. The scientific literature is replete with articles about the large measurement errors that accrue in this data owing to the fact that a ship’s infrastructure conducts heat, absorbs a tremendous amount of the sun’s energy, and vessels’ intake tubes are at different ocean depths. See, for instance,John J. Kennedy’s “A review of uncertainty in in situ measurements and data sets of sea surface temperature,” published Jan. 24, 2014, by the journal Reviews of Geophysics.

NOAA’s alteration of its measurement standard and other changes produced a result that could have been predicted: a marginally significant warming trend in the data over the past several years, erasing the temperature plateau that vexed climate alarmists have found difficult to explain. Yet the increase remains far below what had been expected.

It is nonetheless true that 2015 shows the highest average surface temperature in the 160-year global history since reliable records started being available, with or without the “hiatus.” But that is also not very surprising. Early in 2015, a massive El Niño broke out. These quasiperiodic reversals of Pacific trade winds and deep-ocean currents are well-documented but poorly understood. They suppress the normally massive upwelling of cold water off South America that spreads across the ocean (and is the reason that Lima may be the most pleasant equatorial city on the planet). The Pacific reversal releases massive amounts of heat, and therefore surface temperature spikes. El Niño years in a warm plateau usually set a global-temperature record. What happened this year also happened with the last big one, in 1998.

Global average surface temperature in 2015 popped up by a bit more than a quarter of a degree Fahrenheit compared with the previous year. In 1998 the temperature rose by slightly less than a quarter-degree from 1997.

When the Pacific circulation returns to its more customary mode, all that suppressed cold water will surge to the surface with a vengeance, and global temperatures will drop. Temperatures in 1999 were nearly three-tenths of a degree lower than in 1998, and a similar change should occur this time around, though it might not fit so neatly into a calendar year. Often the compensatory cooling, known as La Niña, is larger than the El Niño warming.

There are two real concerns about warming, neither of which has anything to do with the El Niño-enhanced recent peak. How much more is the world likely to warm as civilization continues to exhale carbon dioxide, and does warming make the weather more “extreme,” which means more costly?

Instead of relying on debatable surface-temperature information, consider instead readings in the free atmosphere (technically, the lower troposphere) taken by two independent sensors: satellite sounders and weather balloons. As has been shown repeatedly by University of Alabama climate scientist John Christy, since late 1978 (when the satellite record begins), the rate of warming in the satellite-sensed data is barely a third of what it was supposed to have been, according to the large family of global climate models now in existence. Balloon data, averaged over the four extant data sets, shows the same.

It is therefore probably prudent to cut by 50% the modeled temperature forecasts for the rest of this century. Doing so would mean that the world—without any political effort at all—won’t warm by the dreaded 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 that the United Nations regards as the climate apocalypse.

The notion that world-wide weather is becoming more extreme is just that: a notion, or a testable hypothesis. As data from the world’s biggest reinsurer, Munich Re, and University of Colorado environmental-studies professor Roger Pielke Jr. have shown, weather-related losses haven’t increased at all over the past quarter-century. In fact, the trend, while not statistically significant, is downward. Last year showed the second-smallest weather-related loss of Global World Productivity, or GWP, in the entire record.

Without El Niño, temperatures in 2015 would have been typical of the post-1998 regime. And, even with El Niño, the effect those temperatures had on the global economy was de minimis.
