THE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR BIDEN ANYWAY

We had a pandemic that should have ignited reverence and repentance in Christians. But it didn’t. The big reason is modern preaching. That widespread moral confusion spills over into Christian sentiment about Biden.

Here is my question: How can they call themselves Christians and do such an anti-Christian act as voting for Biden? The answer is simple: modern preaching. Modern preaching has produced the most Biblically illiterate generation of church-goers ever.

Because of modern preaching, Christians don’t know what they believe beyond their false vision of a loving, tolerant and generous God who caters to their every whim. A God to overlook their carnal lifestyle.

Because of modern preaching a moral choice is not as important as ‘feeling loved.’

Because of modern preaching, many who call themselves Christians cannot handle persecution. And this is a critical point. Why? Because the platform that Biden is running on is hatred for Trump. And the hatred of Trump coming from the media and Hollywood makes it uncomfortable for an ambivalent believer to take a stand. They want to be accepted…the same motivation that drives their celebrity pastor. Acceptance!

Certain Christians want him because he is not Trump. But this is not a conviction but a concession like the concessions Christians have made in other areas of morality. Again because of modern preaching.

It is true that Biden is not Trump thank God, but believers need to be clear about what their vote for Biden will do to the world and what it says about them. I beg you to open your heart and mind to facts.

Again, these are facts not opinions:

There’s undeniable evidence of cognitive decline in Joe Biden. He often looks confused, the man can’t finish a sentence. He has the rude angry outbursts that accompany this form of decline.  He continued to give unwanted attention to females long after being warned. It’s almost as if he forgot to stop.

Back to the issue of cognitive decline. Below are his actual words as he addressed the coronavirus. Teleprompter and all.

He has embraced the full compliment of socialist evil embedded in the Democrat platform. He wants Beto O’Rourke to take away our guns. He wants to reinstate laws that oppress Christian bakers and businesses. Not opinion. Things he has just said. He is so desperate to become President that he has vowed to veer left and rally those who support the agendas of Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ activists, and socialism. He has even made a deal with the other devil, Bernie Sanders.

China lied about Covid 19. That was a devastating attack on the United States. Joe Biden has made a career of giving in to the Chinese government. He even sided with them after the pandemic started accusing Trump of racism for stopping flights from China. Attacks from China are only beginning. That of itself makes Biden a disaster and the absolute worst choice.

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is too weak to resist Obama’s war on the church. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both the church and the nation. He will go after every value Christianity stands for.

 

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump. No one else, no matter how saintly you esteem them to be, has any chance of winning. And if Trump loses, America will belong to the enemies of God.

This pandemic has shut down the American economy. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote to elect a cure that is worse than the disease? Should the economy be in the hands of Biden?

Many liberal governors will do all they can to keep churches shut down long after the virus has subsided. How can you call yourself a Christian and allow an enemy of the church and an ally to these governors to put the finishing touches on an already dangerous situation?

 

Come on—ask yourself, do you seriously believe Biden will be able to rebuild America after all the damage this pandemic has done?  Trump alone possesses the skill and the will to bring us back from disaster. China fears Donald Trump but their mouth waters at the thought of a Biden presidency and a Democrat-run Congress.

 

This corona virus is the warning shot across the bow to a nation that has filled up the cup of iniquity with the wrath of God. So far, many in the church are still drowsy, indifferent and ignorant of the two most important facts that exist in this hour.

1. America must repent or be diminished. We have shoved God away. It grieves God that lost souls go after depravity, but it also grieves God that so-called Christians still don’t get the urgency of this hour and the utter necessity of radical repentance.

2. We must appreciate that Donald Trump is an act of mercy. He is a rough and tumble deliverer. Certainly, many have wished for a smoother, less combative President. The fact is that America, in her sin, has made it necessary for God to use strong medicine. We must appreciate that Trump was sent by God or suffer unspeakable consequences.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)

The foundations are being destroyed, and it is clear who the destroyers are…so how can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Biden?

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.

HOW CAN YOU CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN?

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible.

How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is weak. He is declining. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both America and the church. He will unravel everything of value you claim to stand for.

Then there are the “Christians” who think that by either not voting, or by voting for a third candidate they are innocent and are ‘voting their conscience.’

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump.

WHAT ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE WHO WILL DIE?

Few seem to be talking about the death toll that may result if the economy remains shut longer than it should.  And how many have already died? I reject the notion that wanting to reopen America puts “profits over people.” I see some on the Left putting political agenda over people.

Lives Depend on Economic Activity. When you stop that, then you kill people. Before we insist on totally destroying the American economy, we must weigh the risk of reopening businesses—because there is always risk—against the risk of not reopening. We must not allow fear, induced by those with hidden motives, to bring us to disaster.

Remember the forecasts that virus-related death-totals for the United States would range from as high as 10 million, to a low of 2.2 million?  Thank God they were so, so wrong. Of course any death is too much death but we must separate fact from fiction. To stay shut until there is zero threat is unrealistic. That day will never come. But something will come if we stay shut too long. The danger is, hardly anyone is talking about the other calamity that may doom our nation. Thank God some are talking about it.

Thomas K. Duncan, Ph.D., an associate professor of economics at Radford University, and Audrey Redford Ph.D., the assistant professor of economics at Western Carolina University wrote an article entitled: How Shutting Down The Economy Much Longer Could Kill Tens Of Thousands Of Americans.

The article appeared in The Federalist March 30, 2020.  Here is an excerpt from their article:

“The recession could be longer than some economists are projecting. If the economy does linger in its downturn, the human costs to the shutdown will inevitably begin to increase.”

The article suggests that there could possibly be “28,797 More Deaths from Opioids,” based on the following calculations:

“A 2017 National Bureau of Economic Research paper finds a 3.6% increase in the opioid death rate per 100,000 people (when there is a) 1% rise in unemployment. There were 14.6 opioid death rates per 100,000 in the United States in 2018. If we use the more conservative estimate of a 20% unemployment rate without a quick return to lower levels, then there would be an estimated 59.4% rise in deaths per 100,000, leading to an increase of 8.7 deaths for a total of 23.3 for opioids.”

If unemployment were to increase, then so would both suicide and homicide:

“The deaths related to economic downturns go beyond those from chemical dependency, also. The mental toll is not inconsequential. For example, Blakely, et al, (2003) finds that being unemployed may also increase the risk of suicide two to threefold. Milner, et al. (2014) similarly finds that unemployment is associated with a higher relative risk of suicide, with prior mental health issues being a key factor in that association. While a study by Kerr, et al, (2018) did not find that unemployment is directly linked to suicides, it did find a significant link between poverty, suicide, and alcoholism.

“With our estimated 16.5% rise in unemployment, we could see a significant increase in both property and violent crimes. The violent crime also may add to the death toll in this period.”

After reading the article, I came to a conclusion: I do not want to risk anyone’s life. We should stay home until it is reasonably safe. But our definition of safety must be weighed against the risk of death from listening to leftists who have other goals.

It is far too tempting for the Left. They have demonstrated a passion for three things to happen:

  1. They want desperately, above all else, for Trump to lose the election.
  2. They want to replace Free Market Capitalism with Socialism.
  3. And they want to weaken the church.

In order to accomplish these three goals, they have also demonstrated an amoral viciousness in their remarks against Trump and his handling of the virus pandemic. They simply can’t be trusted or allowed to make such a critical decision as reopening.

No one can look inside the heart of someone and truly know what goes on there. Jeremiah 17:9 says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” We already know they believe America is so unfair and stupid that they will blame the failure of the economy on Trump and not on the virus.

But who knows? Their hatred may go deep enough to cheer on the destruction of our economy, just so the chaos will birth Socialism.  Or, that the devastation will close churches for good.

Here’s the one I want to focus on. I personally know of many churches that cannot afford to stay closed much longer. I also expect that even if the arc of viral infection flattens, Blue State Governors will still push for keeping churches closed. 

Sadly, theologically challenged believers will dismiss the notion that churches will be permanently closed because of this. They will quote Matthew 16:18, “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”

Of course, the universal church of Christ will not go out of existence, but I know congregations and pastors who will have to shut their doors if this economic shutdown goes on much longer.

To say that churches can’t be shut down for good is to deny the existence of underground churches all over the world that have already lost their rights and their buildings.

Churches provide a necessary healing gift. They stop suicide. Faith based ministries rescue people from dying every day. Only God knows if any have died since drug programs and outreach ministries have been shut down. There is no way to replace the human touch online.


If the virus becomes an open-ended political excuse—relying on models that are leftist and not scientific—then we have to do some deep soul searching. If we see our leaders are willing to allow the deaths that we know will happen from a dead economy—and closed churches—because they want to prevent the ones that might happen, then it’s no longer prudence, it’s politics.

Agree with me in fervent prayer for President Donald Trump. When to reopen America will be the hardest and greatest decision of his entire career. Pray for wisdom greater than any human intellect.

HATING TRUMP MORE THAN THE VIRUS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THIS LATEST LIE PROVES THE LEFTIST MEDIA IS A TOTAL DISGRACE

When there is a national crisis, historically, Americans forget politics and come together as a nation. Human decency tells us to rally around those who are trying to save lives. That is how you and I think, but the leftist media does not. While you and I are fighting the virus, they are fighting Trump: with lies.

CNN has actually intensified their war on the President during this pandemic. Before we get to their latest and greatest lie, let’s do a short review:

  • They accused Trump of Russia collusion when Hillary was the actual colluder.
  • They blamed Trump for the Ukrainian quid pro quo when Joe Biden and his son were the actual quid pro quo duo.

Now, once again, the Left is blaming Trump for something Trump did not do, but that the Left did do. Only this time, it is so vile that it proves they are a total disgrace. They are claiming that Trump acted too slow and that he killed Americans. Barbra Streisand actually provided the statistic: she says Trump is guilty of killing 20,000 people. 

I wanted Doctor Anthony Fauci, one of Trump’s leaders on the coronavirus task force, to be fired for what he intimated on CNN about the President. I have since changed my opinion, because the good doctor walked back his unfortunate remark today, and because he was tricked by Jake Tapper.

How vile is CNN? Why did they need to manufacture a sound bite to make it look like Trump stood idly by and allowed Americans to die? Why were they willing to tell such a cruel lie? Couldn’t they see how that rubs salt in the wounds of families who have lost loved ones? Yes, they saw all that, but it did not stop them. They did it anyway.

This demonstrates once and for all what evil monsters these people are. Again, they do not care about truth, they do not care about winning against the pandemic. They seethe with so much hatred for Trump that it poisons their every word and action.

In their tradition of blaming the President for what their side actually did, the Left downplayed the virus because they didn’t want to appear racist. Bill de Blasio, the Mayor of New York City, as late as February was telling New Yorkers not to be afraid, urging them to go out to restaurants and by all means enjoy the Chinese New Year’s celebrations, because he didn’t want to look racist by blaming the Chinese for the Chinese Virus that started in China…

Even doctor Fauci said this on January 21, 2020, nearly three months ago, “Well obviously we have to take it seriously and follow the things the CDC an DHS are doing, but this is not a major threat to the people of the United States and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.”

Trump acted faster than anyone to save lives by banning flights from China. Then CNN vilified him as a racist. Think about that. First they condemned Trump for acting too soon, and now they accuse him of having acting too late. See how that works?

Trump worked with the best information available at the time. The media will never admit that, in fact, they refuse to blame the ultimate villain who caused unnecessary American deaths: The Chinese Government. The evil Chinese dictators knew the real nature of this virus and hid it from the world. They more than anyone, bear the guilt of people dying and nations shut down.

The leftist media is now an evil enterprise whose sworn goal is destroying President Trump, no matter what. We are fighting two pandemics today, and they are both lethal. We are fighting coronavirus and the hatred coming from the Left and their leftist media fake news outlets. They are possessed by an evil spirit. They are incapable of logic, reason or wisdom. They have discarded all restraints and are even willing to destroy democracy to get achieve their goal. If ever you needed proof, it is right there. Nothing reveals someone’s heart like what they do during a crisis.

We need to commend the President, because they never will. We need to thank Trump for his Winston Churchill-like attack on the virus. Remember how many people the Left said would die no matter what anyone did? Thank God their numbers were wrong. Thank God for President Trump’s ongoing part in saving lives.

He needs our support now, more than ever, since Adam Schiff has already begun another impeachment investigation.

Is it tragic that any Americans died from the virus? Absolutely. Each death was a loved one, and that is one reason—besides many others—that we cannot allow this latest lie to go unanswered.  The leftist media now stands clearly exposed as the total disgrace that they are.

 

WHAT ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE WHO WILL DIE?

Few seem to be talking about the death toll that may result if the economy remains shut longer than it should.  I reject the notion that wanting to reopen America puts “profits over people.” I see some on the Left putting political agenda over people.

Lives Depend on Economic Activity. When you stop that, then you kill people. Before we insist on totally destroying the American economy, we must weigh the risk of reopening businesses—because there is always risk—against the risk of not reopening. We must not allow fear, induced by those with hidden motives, to bring us to disaster.

Remember the forecasts that virus-related death-totals for the United States would range from as high as 10 million, to a low of 2.2 million?  Thank God they were so, so wrong. Of course any death is too much death but we must separate fact from fiction. To stay shut until there is zero threat is unrealistic. That day will never come. But something will come if we stay shut too long. The danger is, hardly anyone is talking about the other calamity that may doom our nation. Thank God some are talking about it.

Thomas K. Duncan, Ph.D., an associate professor of economics at Radford University, and Audrey Redford Ph.D., the assistant professor of economics at Western Carolina University wrote an article entitled: How Shutting Down The Economy Much Longer Could Kill Tens Of Thousands Of Americans.

The article appeared in The Federalist today, March 30, 2020.  Here is an excerpt from their article:

“The recession could be longer than some economists are projecting. If the economy does linger in its downturn, the human costs to the shutdown will inevitably begin to increase.”

The article suggests that there could possibly be “28,797 More Deaths from Opioids,” based on the following calculations:

“A 2017 National Bureau of Economic Research paper finds a 3.6% increase in the opioid death rate per 100,000 people (when there is a) 1% rise in unemployment. There were 14.6 opioid death rates per 100,000 in the United States in 2018. If we use the more conservative estimate of a 20% unemployment rate without a quick return to lower levels, then there would be an estimated 59.4% rise in deaths per 100,000, leading to an increase of 8.7 deaths for a total of 23.3 for opioids.”

If unemployment were to increase, then so would both suicide and homicide:

“The deaths related to economic downturns go beyond those from chemical dependency, also. The mental toll is not inconsequential. For example, Blakely, et al, (2003) finds that being unemployed may also increase the risk of suicide two to threefold. Milner, et al. (2014) similarly finds that unemployment is associated with a higher relative risk of suicide, with prior mental health issues being a key factor in that association. While a study by Kerr, et al, (2018) did not find that unemployment is directly linked to suicides, it did find a significant link between poverty, suicide, and alcoholism.

“With our estimated 16.5% rise in unemployment, we could see a significant increase in both property and violent crimes. The violent crime also may add to the death toll in this period.”

After reading the article, I came to a conclusion: I do not want to risk anyone’s life. We should stay home until it is reasonably safe. But our definition of safety must be weighed against the risk of death from listening to leftists who have other goals.

It is far too tempting for the Left. They have demonstrated a passion for three things to happen:

  1. They want desperately, above all else, for Trump to lose the election.
  2. They want to replace Free Market Capitalism with Socialism.
  3. And they want to weaken the church.

In order to accomplish these three goals, they have also demonstrated an amoral viciousness in their remarks against Trump and his handling of the virus pandemic. They simply can’t be trusted or allowed to make such a critical decision as reopening.

No one can look inside the heart of someone and truly know what goes on there. Jeremiah 17:9 says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” We already know they believe America is so unfair and stupid that they will blame the failure of the economy on Trump and not on the virus.

But who knows? Their hatred may go deep enough to cheer on the destruction of our economy, just so the chaos will birth Socialism.  Or, that the devastation will close churches for good.

Here’s the one I want to focus on. I personally know of many churches that cannot afford to stay closed much longer. I also expect that even if the arc of viral infection flattens, Blue State Governors will still push for keeping churches closed. 

Sadly, theologically challenged believers will dismiss the notion that churches will be permanently closed because of this. They will quote Matthew 16:18, “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”

Of course, the universal church of Christ will not go out of existence, but I know congregations and pastors who will have to shut their doors if this economic shutdown goes on much longer.

To say that churches can’t be shut down for good is to deny the existence of underground churches all over the world that have already lost their rights and their buildings.

Churches provide a necessary healing gift. They stop suicide. Faith based ministries rescue people from dying every day. Only God knows if any have died since drug programs and outreach ministries have been shut down. There is no way to replace the human touch online.


If the virus becomes an open-ended political excuse—relying on models that are leftist and not scientific—then we have to do some deep soul searching. If we see our leaders are willing to allow the deaths that we know will happen from a dead economy—and closed churches—because they want to prevent the ones that might happen, then it’s no longer prudence, it’s politics.

Agree with me in fervent prayer for President Donald Trump. When to reopen America will be the hardest and greatest decision of his entire career. Pray for wisdom greater than any human intellect.

 

 

 

 

 

YOU BETTER THANK GOD TRUMP IS PRESIDENT

Today, as I prayed, a strange and unexpected phrase leapt into my spirit, “Trump is about to have his Winston Churchill moment.” It stunned me because it seemed so inappropriate in the light of current events. This is no time for cheerleading or political grandstanding. We are in lockdown!

Yes, we are in lockdown. Across America, store shelves are as empty as if we were a socialist nation. The empty streets are even eerier than the empty shelves. My hometown of San Francisco will close at midnight tonight and will not open again until April 7th. Citizens are ordered to shelter in place—which is just a frightening euphemism for martial law.

Why should you thank God that Trump is President? How can I go so totally against the grain of political correctness in the face of a viral pandemic? When everyone is clamoring to say we need to stop fighting each other and come together against a common enemy, why would I write something as incendiary as being positive about Trump?

Why? Because I believe something is about to come out of Trump that even his closest friends will find stunning. And, what is that?  Let’s start with the ingredients that will build toward the coming Churchill moment.

He is a New Yorker. I have always loved New Yorkers. My favorite area to preach has always been New York. My preaching doesn’t scare them there. The New York side of Trump is about to make an appearance. That thing that’s in the water that makes the pizza so great, is also in Donald Trump. You want to get something done? Tell a New Yorker it’s impossible.

I am not talking about the reptilian Mayor De Blasio or the demonic Governor Cuomo. I am talking about New Yorkers from the former glory days.

Trump is about to go ‘New York’ in a good way—the old way! He is going to suggest (read: demand) some radical action to get America back on its feet in the shortest amount of time.

During WWII, Winston Churchill was hated by Parliament because he actually taunted them. Heck, he ridiculed them. London was bombed every night and Churchill went around behind the back of Parliament to get the things done that were necessary to stop Hitler and comfort the people of Great Britain. He relied on nothing but his own convictions to rally the nation to have courage and to exhibit resolve.  Do you hear me Mr. President? The moxie you had in Manhattan, you need right now!

I believe you will see Donald Trump act in many ways that the Left will squeal are ‘reckless.’ Because he loves America and Americans, he will ignore the critics who don’t count, and do what needs to be done.

Teddy Roosevelt described the Trump we are about to see:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

I am waiting for the words, “SO WHAT?” to come barreling up out of Trump. That whatever-it-is that says, “I don’t even care if I’m re-elected anymore! I am going to do whatever it takes and I don’t care who doesn’t like it.”

Mr. President, they will call you a despot—but you must ignore the soy milk-induced wrangling of the spineless politicians on the Hill.

Trump loves America and Americans even more than he loves being President. Because of that, I know he is about to rise to a previously unseen level of courage.  Washington D.C. is a corrupt city full of rodents in suits who really don’t care how many of its citizens this virus kills or how long it takes to do it. These sniveling rats only care about staying in power. They will continue their usual compliant and cowardly approach to leadership. They will say and do whatever it takes to create fear and weakness.

I think of Peter Strozk the weasel from the FBI. Remember the nuclear smugness and robotic aloofness of his appearance before Congress? That’s what I think of when I think of D.C.

Last of all, I believe that right now, as he is alone with his private thoughts, a fire is building up in our President. And that fire is from God. He was chosen for this crisis. He is right where he needs to be, right when we need him most to be there.  Can you imagine how badly Hillary would have handled this mess?

The fire in President Trump is going to find the words to rally the American Spirit. Our Commander in Chief is going to stir up the American eagle and it is going to soar. He will remind us that we never used to scare this easily. He will speak to the noblest part of our national character and he will convince us that, together, we can do this! We can and we will lick this virus.

He will inspire us to pay the price. So what if we have to sit at home and wait it out? So what if we have to risk our economy in order to defeat this menace? The fear is unwarranted. But the sacrifice is doable.

The airlines—the economy—our healthcare system—our churches, are all going to come roaring back and we will chase this Coronavirus back to the Petri dish where it belongs.

From the Spirit of 1776 in Philadelphia, to the generation that knocked out the Third Reich, to the voice on the moon that gave a giant leap to mankind—Americans have always conquered their fears, and then they have conquered their enemies.

Yeah, look out for Trump to go into Presidential beast mode. Millions will hate him for the bold decisiveness and the clarity he is about to show.  But you and I and millions more, are going to love him for it.

I would like to think that great heroes like Winston Churchill are looking down from above, and seeing a familiar metamorphosis taking place in Donald Trump, Winston is smiling.

HATING TRUMP MORE THAN THE VIRUS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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