Too Rude?

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

 

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

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

  1. Truman letter to Paul Hume:

“Mr. Hume:

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

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

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

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

 

 

Is George Soros funding division?

A video from the American Association of Evangelicals says this about George Soros: “through his many funding ventures, has been busily infiltrating the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party.”

In the AAE press release they name Reverend Jim Wallis who was touring the states to get Christians to vote against Republicans.  “Rev. Jim Wallis and allies are now touring many states on ‘Vote Common Good’ buses to … split the evangelical vote before the mid-term elections.”  And in many ways they were successful.

The video shows a voice recording of Jim Wallis the leader of Sojourners ministry denying he got funds from George Soros.  Cheryl Chumley of the Washington Times said this:  “But guess what?  His denial’s proven a bit — umm, wrong.”

Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have not only flowed by the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Sojourners, AAE reported. But Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have been flowing to the Sojourners for some time.”

Jim Wallis pictured with Clinton and Obama.

“Soros Funding of Sojourners Is Only the Tip of the Iceberg,” wrote National Review in August of 2010.  Not only that but this has been going on for years.  The Blaze reported this back in October 2011: ““George Soros Sends $150000 to Jim Wallis‘ Left-Wing Group Sojourners.”

The Sojourners has wholly given themselves over to the left but continues to masquerade as Evangelical Christians doing the work of Christ.

Their website says things like, “We are evangelicals, Catholics, Pentecostals and Protestants; progressives and conservatives; blacks, whites, Latinos, and Asians; women and men; young and old … [and] seek to discover the intersection of faith, politics, and culture,”

Their magazine says things like “No Wall Between Amigos.” And this: “Conservative Court-Packing Isn’t About Abortion — It’s About Culture: If the Right really cares about abortion, they should reduce poverty.” And this: “In the Midst of a Political Emergency: The administration is threatening the soul of this nation.”

They oppose Trump at every turn.  They espouse big government socialism.  Remember,  they were touring 31 states for the single purpose of getting Christians to vote for Democrats.

There’s nothing pro-Donald Trump, pro-conservative, pro-limited government, pro-Constitution about this group’s goals — or, for that matter, about the Vote Common Good bus tour.

The front organization for this tour is called Vote Common Good.  It’s leader Doug Pagitt said this: ““we believe the Trump administration needs to be restrained” and that he simply wants Americans to “consider the common good when they vote.”

Cheryl Chumley says “What’s going on here is not so much Christianity as it is partisan politicking under cover of religious teaching. It’s the furtherance of a George Soros style of progressivism, but cloaked in Christianity — and backed by George Soros bucks — and made all the worse by the initial denials of the George Soros ties.

Anyone can toss down a Christian card, even an atheist. But a clue to identify an anti-American enemy is the wolves always want Big Government, bigger government, a more powerful centralized system with weakened rights for the individual — and if it’s secret Soros dollars and Bible-thumping that gets them there, so be it.”

Be on guard!  Don’t be fooled and don’t forget that we are approaching the election of the ages.  This will be the single most important election in our lifetime.

THE CHURCH CAN BE MIGHTY IF

Two dumb ideas used by celebrity preachers as an excuse to remain silent when they should be mustering the army of God to do her duty.   She is losing influence every day because a confused view of her duty.

These ideas are putting the church back into Obama era apathy at the worst possible time.  Think of what is at stake.  The Supreme Court, the economy, national security, and everything we hold dear will be lost.  Everything Trump tried to do will vanish in an instant. The floodgates of immorality will open.

Here are the two bone-headed ideas.  1. All government is from God and we must submit and not mention politics.   2. A candidate must be sinless or we are choosing the lesser of two evils. 

And here are the verses abused to justify those two bone-headed ideas:

Romans 13: 1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.  “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”

1. It’s dumb to say stay out of politics and submit to government not matter what:  No sane Christian believes Hitler was God’s will for Germany.  God raised up divine retribution on him through the nations of the world.  God works through people to restrain evil.  The church must do her duty to restrain evil.

“The authorities that exist”: This phrase means authority from God, not rogue authority.  Satan is rogue authority.   God has always balanced the threat of tyranny with authorities He raises up: “God’s minister to execute wrath.”

Moreover, it says “No ruling authority from God is a terror to good works.”  They do not persecute God’s people or enact laws to ban the Gospel.  So what do you call authority that is a terror to good works?

German believers abused these same verses to justify their apathy.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer could not open the eyes of the German church about the horrors of Hitler.  His radio addresses warned Germany.  Ironically, he blamed the fad of cheap grace and their blind submission.  They rejected his warnings and the consequence was the bloodiest world war and 6 million Jews annihilated.

Again, the point is that God works through people to stop evil.  The church’s silence in the face of evil is not noble or virtuous, it is itself evil.

dietrich-bonhoffer 

Nations can and do pick evil leaders.  Even Israel picked an evil leader: 1 Samuel 8:6 “But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.”   Obama was never God’s choice for America.   We have a mountainous stockpile of wreckage to prove it.  

charade

When evil reigns, God begins a complicated process to reestablish justice. Human history is messy.  God works in that mess.  We want story book endings but humanity is complicated.  Jehovah works like a surgeon skillfully cutting around vital organs to get at the cancer.  Jesus spoke of the wheat and tares having to grow together until the end—otherwise the wheat would also be lost.   We have a Biblical mandate to discern and get involved in the work God is doing to save our nation.

Jehovah

2. It’s dumb to waste your vote because you “refuse to pick the lesser of two evils.”  You must discern where God is working and support it.  God uses flawed people: Daniel was probably shocked to discover that God choose to use Nebuchadnezzar.

Daniel

Instead of asking who is without sin, we should be asking where is God working?  

Look at what Paul did:  Acts 23:6 “But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question. 7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided. 8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both. 9 And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees’ part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.”

Jesus said that the Sadducees and Pharisees were both evil.  So was Paul choosing the lesser of two evils by siding with the Pharisees?  Or, was he discerning where God could work?   Right now it is Trump He can work with.  But Trump needs a Congress he can work with.  We had better work with God in this next election. 

Still don’t know what you must do?  From Nancy Pelosi to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats have vowed to open borders, seize guns, redistribute wealth, skyrocket taxes, and force the church to “evolve.”  The American church still does not see the danger, and that itself is the danger.

Evil is not hard to spot.  It hates, Israel, Christianity, and Biblical morality, the family, and the unborn.   The Democratic Party wears this badge of hate proudly. What else do you need to know?

These dumb ideas are not scriptural. They will play into the hands of those who would take away our rights and forever change America’s system of government.  It will be impossible to withstand the wave of falsehood and hatred in the next election if we do not repudiate these crippling dumb ideas.

But if we see them for what they are, rebuke them and submit to the Holy Spirit…even a small number can create a mighty transformation.

 

WALKING ON THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO

I am walking the Streets of San Francisco.   I snap this picture and the voice of God blasted in my spirit: “all that can be shaken.” God has made His choice.  God has chosen His targets.  God will strike suddenly.   Everything that can be shaken will be shaken.

-You companies who have used your wealth and power to persecute the righteous will now be shaken.

-You politicians—who have ruined America for decades will suddenly disappear.

-You preachers who have handled the Word of God deceitfully and cheapened Grace to finance your private life of drunkenness, whoredom, and materialism will have your gift removed in public humiliation.

God shook Himself.  He waited.  He was patient.  He gave you time to play church.  He let you have your blessing toys.  He looked away in hopes we would come to ourselves.  His blessing and his goodness did not bring you to repentance.  No, it became a license to go deeper into counterfeit Christianity.

The America church is guilty of great crimes against the Holy Spirit.  We told Him to leave and lets us grow Christianity incorporated—the worst thing we could have done.

It was a mistake—a terrible, incalculable, ongoing mistake—derailing more truth in less time than any moral plague in history.

It’s why we couldn’t stop Barack Obama—why we made no cogent case to save marriage, the unborn, or free speech—why we stood by and watched America change overnight—why we were helpless to intervene when our nation began hating everything that made her great.

Trump was only the beginning of this shaking.  He is rude, he is offensive—by design.  His words uproot and tear down.  He is a wrecking ball to international corruption.  His crudeness is a tool of a God with a plan.  He makes you queasy?  He scares you?  That’s nothing…

Just wait till they try to get him out of power.  Oh how his enemies rejoice thinking they have nailed him as a racist.  They will fail for 2 simple reasons:  He is not a racist and he is in power for a divine reason.

Watch the most powerful people attack and crumble.  Watch liberal heads explode as Trump remains—not because he is holy or even a good leader—but because he is chosen to wreak havoc on the world system.

Why now you ask?  Why has God rolled up His sleeve to root up false ministries?  Why is He accelerating His earthquakes?  I wondered.  I asked.  The answer was stunning but not surprising.  Here are the reasons:

-We are at the moment when Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter along with leftist leaders will unfurl a cyber-iron curtain.  Christians will be marginalized.  Values that violate our Constitution and freedom of religion will be enforced.  Bible preaching will be a hate crime.  (How sickening!  Carnal ministers were toadies in this plan to drive the church underground and terrorize Israel.)

-Nancy Pelosi will again be the Speaker of the House.  Are we days away from a leftist backlash that will transcend anything in our history?   Conventional wisdom may say yes, but God is shaking the agenda of those that hate America.

God came to the inescapable decision that revival must come now or the nation is lost.  He will pour out wrath…but He will also pour out His Spirit.  Hallelujah!

 

Look for despised little churches—faithfully preaching the Word of God—to become centers of Glory, miracles and mass conversions.

Look for nobodies to come on the scene like a righteous tornado and roar repentance with such power that their voice will echo in the penthouses of power.

Look for campus ministries to rise because millennials will see the blatant persecution and turn Christianity into a celebrated cause.

Look for preaching to be matched with miracles—confirmation of the WORD by medically inexplicable healings.

Look for God to pull out all the stops to save America.  Look for every ministry fueled by man to fall by the wayside to make room for the voices that cannot be shaken. But for the righteous there is great news!

Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.  Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities.  He said workers.  Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work.  A special core burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick.  They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.

But there is another miracle awaiting this unique breed.  They will be allowed to see the world around them from the vantage point of the throne of God.  Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”

What do you see from this vantage point?  You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty.  He knows the hollow arguments of the haters.  He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media.  He saw it all coming and prepared the response.  Glory to God

HERE’S WHAT REALLY HAPPENED LAST NIGHT

Jesus was talking about a day like today when He said, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly.” -Luke 21: 34
There is no reason for tonight’s election results to wreck our peace or weigh us down.  Yeah it was disappointing.  Yeah we got work to do.  But here are facts to help get a true perspective on last night:
-God placed a significant burden on me and many other voices to warn the church about what could have happened.  I have been totally obedient to deliver some pretty stern warnings.  While I am still passionate about nominal Christians repenting, the massive losses we could have had did not happen as Christians showed up to vote their conscience.
-There is no way around the fact that Democrats won victories last night (I lament the losses in my new home state of Nevada) but the blue wave hit the shore like a manageable ripple. No doubt, there will be much ballyhooing by the left, don’t let that shake you…we dodged a big bullet last night.
-At this same point in his presidency—in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama lost 63 House seats plus 6 seats in the Senate.  If you went by the predictions of the left, Democrats would have gained much more than they did.  Obama’s losses were double the losses of last night.
-Star power and lefty billionaire money did not deliver key victories. There were key losses for Obama, Oprah, Hollywood and leftist billionaires in Texas, Florida, and Georgia.  Pop superstar Taylor Swift’s endorsement of Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen failed to persuade the great people of Tennessee on Tuesday.  This is a clear indication that Trump is more popular than they want to admit, and star power is less than they hoped.
-Governorship victories in Ohio, Florida, Iowa, and Vermont???  These and other key Governors victories point to strong reasons for hope in Trump’s reelection.  Note: Governor Kasich did not help Trump in Ohio in 2016.  The new governor DeWine is all in for Trump.
-Incumbent Presidents usually lose the House in midterm elections.  This was no indication America is moving left.  In fact, Trump fared better than average.  Especially when you consider that virtually the entire media was vilifying him.
– The gap closed against Cruz and others is because out of state lefty billionaires and Hollywood personalities poured in money and time.  (Give me 100 million dollars and I could get people to vote for Bozo the Clown.)  Wealthy leftist elites feel burned after failing with Hillary and the now nonexistent blue wave.  They will be difficult to tap for future elections.
-Republican candidates finally realize they get votes by identifying with Trump.  That plus a 51% approval rating means that going into 2020 Trump looks strong.
-We gained a stronger majority in the Senate.  Not only this but never Trumper senators are all but gone.
The bottom line is what Newt Gingrich said, “The Trump Revolution will be safe and continue to grow in the Senate – and that is an amazing outcome for this year.”

 

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist

The victory of Brett Kavanaugh faded quickly in my spirit.  It was something President Trump asked the crowd in Kansas.  “If they act this way trying to get power what do you think they will be like if they get the power?”

Then he said, “you don’t hand matches to an arsonist.”

Diane Feinstein will slander an innocent man—hold back that slander till it has the most sadistic impact on a godly family—just to win an election.  If she does that now, what would she do with a Senate majority?

The left believes men should be guilty until proven guilty.  They want carte blanche to investigate until the lies suffocate the truth. 

And what if Kavanaugh had quit?  What if that towering miscarriage of justice had carried the day? The war on men would have reached critical mass.

As it stands, all we have won is a battle.  The war goes on.  We will still see this ideology canonized in the courts if the left gains control.

Oh, they won’t go after every man…just your man.  They won’t investigate Bill Clinton for rape or Keith Ellison for beating a woman senseless.  They only want to stop men who oppose their agenda.  What do you think they’d do to your Christian, conservative son, brother, husband, father, if they get in the way?

What about the street thugs of the left?  With a Democratic majority they will be emboldened to expand and deepen their disruption and violence.  The streets can become their reign of terror, destroying property and reputations.  They will operate with impunity shielded by a Congress sympathetic to their cause.

Whatever restraint Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and all the social media platforms are showing now will go away.  Instead of shadow banning there will just be banning.

Hollywood, and all the media voices of the left would churn out complete propaganda, drowning out all opposing views.  Look at this tweet:

The writer of this vile tweet is a writer on the Stephen Colbert show, and has nearly 40,000 followers on Twitter. As the Senate confirmation vote was gearing up, she wanted everyone to know that “whatever happens” she is “just” glad she ruined a man’s life. Never mind if he was innocent, never mind any of the facts or corroborations or shifting stories of his accuser. The important thing to her was ruining his life. That was what mattered.

We have entered a moment unlike any in history.  They only time it reminds me of is in Luke 4: 13 “When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.”

The left is a bloodied beast regrouping.  Their vile behavior against Kavanaugh was just a dress rehearsal. Starting today, they will unleash deceit, intimidation and yes, violence.  Dark money will fuel their dirty commercials.  A tsunami of leftist sewage is about to crash into the nation.

Mario, I don’t believe you, this can’t happen.  Yeah and did you ever think something like these depraved confirmation hearings could happen?

The stakes for November are beyond calculation.  I have never seen, nor will I ever see a closer tie between my faith and my vote.  They have become virtually inseparable.  One is now an extension of the other.  Every believer must storm heaven in prayer!  Every believer must go and vote.  If your pastor is not rallying you to pray and vote why are you still listening to them?

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist.  However, if you think you are spiritual by not voting you need to realize this:  while you aren’t handing an arsonist matches, you are leaving them out on the table.

Donald Trump: Working to improve the lives of people who hate him

Donald Trump is working to improve the lives of those who hate him.  He just kept his promise to put Brett Kanvanaugh on the Supreme Court and he is being hated for it.  Ironically, this will make life better for women even though many on the left refuse to see it.  He risks being hated, embraces the hate and keeps working for those who despise him.  He is working to make life better for every demographic group that is calling for his removal and even his death.

Now humor me as I engage is some sarcasm:

-Even though only 8% of blacks voted for him and many black leaders vilify him, he is working to reduce crime, fix crumbling streets and buildings and bring real jobs and real hope to the inner city…I can see why you hate him.

-He is working to improve the lives of women.  He built a multi-billion-dollar empire on a system of merit that promoted men and women equally.  Because of him, the workplace is becoming family friendly with maternity leaves.  Companies are giving women bonuses because of the strong economy.  I can see why you hate him.

He got government off the back of small business—women are the fastest growing group of small business owners.  I can see why women don stupid hats and cuss him out and call him Hitler.

The President is working for the environmentalists who hate him.  Everyone knows the future is in renewable energy but we need a bridge to that future.  Environmentalists want to shut down all fossil fuels and create calamity for the rest of us—especially poor people.  They remind me of the new-age midwives who want women to give birth cold-turkey just to feel all the pain.

These elitist environmentalists don’t have to drive a semi to feed their family.  They will fly around in private jets polluting the air while they lecture they poor fighting to get to work in the only car they can afford.  Refusing to build this bridge to renewable energy is a great way to kill the mother and the baby.  I can see why you hate him.

He is working for poor Americans by securing our borders.  When a criminal or a terrorist enters our country where do they go?  They immediately set up shop in the inner city.  They take the jobs from those who need them most—they plan their mischief in the ghetto.  I can see why inner-city Americans hate Trump…he is putting them first.

When will you wake up from your liberal media induced coma?  Obama had eight years to make black lives matter in Chicago.  He could have sent in the national guard and stopped the killing.  He was more concerned about Syrian refugees than American refugees from violence—I can see why you loved Obama.

An overwhelming number of millennials lived in your parent’s basement under Obama.  Now you don’t.  He put way more energy into putting a man in the women’s restrooms than to putting you in a real career.

And finally, to all of you celebrity Pastors still afraid of support Trump because he is not “pastor” material, let me say this: Would you stay in a church where half of the people lied about you every day and wanted you out.  Would you—knowing there were greener pastures, a bigger church with a higher salary and more adulation—stay and serve?  Yeah I see why you look down on Trump.

Government work?  Trump didn’t need it.  But tell me, where else could Obama have gone?  Can you see Barack trying to build a business in New York City?  He couldn’t do anything but government…and, in my opinion, he was deplorable in government—buttressed by the fantasies of the liberal left.  Again, I can see why you credit Obama for our current economic boom and you hate Trump.

With all bias against him and the massive unfairness heaped on him…Trump still wants to make America great.  How easily—Mr. celebrity pastor—could Trump say, “the heck with all this, I don’t need this for me and my family.

There are many areas Donald Trump needs to grow spiritually but in one area he has zoomed ahead of most preachers: Matthew 5: 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”
