What A (Christian) Man Wants

Prelude.

More specifically, what a Christian Man wants in a relationship. I will not pretend to “speak for all men”, I speak for me alone, but I do feel this WILL resonate with a lot of Christian Men, AND even Christian women.

What I USE TO Think was important, even necessary.

B.C. BEFORE CHRIST (CAME INTO MY HEART AND LIFE).

BEFORE I gave my heart to Jesus…the ONLY requirements for a woman were:

  1. Pretty face.
  2. Killer figure.
  3. Have a pulse.
  4. Like me.

AFTER BECOMING A CHRISTIAN: THE EARLY YEARS

I gave my heart and life to The Lord Jesus Christ when I was 17…so my list did change…some…at first.

  1. Be a Christian.
  2. Like/share some of the same hobbies/interests.
  3. Pretty face.
  4. Killer Figure.
  5. Like me.

It was not long though in my DAILY Christian walk that I saw and learned some things.

NOT everyone claiming to BE Christian IS one. A LOT of fakes, phonies, shallow, and wishy-washy folk who lay claim to being a Christian, but are either new/weak in their faith, or hypocrites. 

And sharing the same hobbies and interests IS good- it only goes so far.

LOOKS? Though nice, are NOT enough. NOT even close. A lot of fine women in the church world who are Jezebels, Delilahs, and sexual predators, (yes, female sexual predators ARE real. They live to seduce, conquor, then dump as many foolish Christian men as they can…I was married to one. The world calls them “Cougars”, God calls them wicked).

And like, even what a lot of Christians call love, is very shallow, transient, fickle, and flesh based. “I love you”…later that day…they’re flirting with someone else. THIS is definitely NOT love. Affection? maybe. Attraction? possibly, and quite shallow at that. Lust? mostly, sadly, and briefly…til their next conquest arrives.

So, What am I looking for, my REQUIREMENTS now? Glad You asked…

  1. BE A REAL, BIBLICAL, FAITHFUL TO GOD, FAITHFUL TO CHURCH CHRISTIAN. MUST have a track record of faithful attendance to the House of God, Prayer, Worship. MUST Have. MUST BE.
  2. MUST be Baptised in The Holy Ghost and Fire, or ACTIVELY seeking and praying for it…MUST.
  3. MUST LOVE The Lord Jesus Christ SO MUCH that worship is natural, easy, and a joy.
  4. MUST have a DAILY devotional and prayer time; MUST hunger, thirst, and seek after The Lord Jesus Christ with ALL your heart, with ALL your soul, with ALL your mind, and with ALL your strength. NO shallow, wishy-washieness. NO Biblical illiteracy. MUST be rooted and grounded IN and UPON The Lord Jesus Christ.
  5. MUST LOVE ME FOR ME. I am NOT a “project” for you to work on and change. Together we WILL be open and honest, and help each other to grow and BE more like The Lord Jesus Christ. That DOES mean helping each other to change, to grow IN Christ. It does NOT mean to change the very core person that Jesus created and saved. The change(s) that need to be made- make via prayer, love, PATIENCE, communication, openness, honesty, trust, respect, and, oh, PRAYER.
  6. MUST HONESTLY COMMUNICATE, MUST. No one is a “mind reader”. While I AM good at reading people and determining the general mood they are in- I can NOT read minds. COMMUNICATE. HONEST COMMUNICATION IS VITAL. NOT an option.
  7. DAILY GROW IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND IN OUR RELATIONSHIP TOGETHER. We should not be in the same place in our relationship 5 months, a year, 30 years in as we were when we first met. There MUST be a DAILY hunger, thirst, and seeking, a DAILY growing in The Lord.
  8. PATIENCE AND HUMILITY, are MUSTS. We ARE Christians (wont even date a non-Christian), BUT we ARE still humans and make mistakes, fall, sin. BE PATIENT. BE HUMBLE. This takes DAILY drawing upon GOD’S mercy, grace, peace, strength, and love.

It ALL begins with, centers on, is focused on, and ends with JESUS.

Yes, I DO want the passion, the affection, the intimacy…BUT ONLY as God prescribes, and ONLY in a LIFE built on and in The Lord Jesus Christ.

Lastly, I’ve finally learned, and am learning, to wait on GOD. Pursue The Lord. Trust Jesus explicitly and implicitly…in and for everything. Rather than worry, fret, and stew over “Where is Miss Right?”…BECOME Mr. Right and let GOD do what ONLY GOD can do.

The Answer Is NOT In Man

DELUSION. DENIAL. THE (ONLY) END HOPE.

PRELUDE.

The “THE END” has been coming on for a long time. In truth, since Christ’s first coming (virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, flawless doctrine, false arrest, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension) Christ and his disciples have said we were in “The Last Days”. In Matthew chapters 24 and 25, in Mark chpt. 13, and in Luke chapters 17 and 21 we see The Lord Jesus Christ giving great detail of  the sign of The End of the end. His disciples echoed that via the unction of The Holy Spirit in I Timothy 4:1-3; II Timothy 3:1-8, 12, 13; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Thessalonians 5:1-12; I Corinthians 15:51-57.

At this time we will focus on but one of these passages, II Thessalonians 2:2-12, (this will corroborated and elaborated on with other Scripture passages at the end).

DELUSION.

II THESSALONIANS 2:2-12

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

===

1 John 2:18 King James Version (KJV)

18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Matthew 24:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

24 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

…12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Romans 1:17-32

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

===

1 Timothy 4:1-3 

1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

===

2 Timothy 3:1-8 

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

===

Matthew 7:6-23 

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

===

In the above passages of Scripture we see The Lord Jesus Christ and His Discipes warn about and against False Christ’s, False Prophets, False Teachers, and even against False “Believers”.

Great detail is given to describe them, let’s collect and catalogue them into a list, then look at it:

MANY warnings against being deceived, deception, and delusion.

MANY warnings about those who reject and exchange Truth for a lie.

MANY warnings against exalting one’s self above The Lord God.

MANY warnings against False Christs, Prophets, Teachers, Believers.

MANY warnings about lying, covetousness, immorality, unholiness, wickedness, greed, fierceness/man’s wrath, and pride.

MANY warnings against heresy, blasphemy, seducing spirits/doctrine…

THAT sounds like someone…

HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO: This deals with the political delusion, but can be applied to the “prosperity gospel”, “positive confession gospel”, self esteem gospel”, word of faith gospel”…ALL are delusions, aka False.

A Democrat is President (BHO, HRC, Biden…) and a GOP Majority in BOTH Houses of Congress. This president apologises to all America’s enemies while attacking and mocking America’s allies. This President makes lurid, lewd, vile, and vulgar statements PUBLICLY about women, physically and mentally handicapped people, veterans (living and deceased), and their families, too), American Congressmen, Senators, and Judges.  This President lies habitually, regularly, and always; this President lies about their lies while telling more lies. This President falsely accuses many others of being guilty of what she/he is actually doing.  This President publicly and privately asks for, seeks, and receives information for personal favors from FOREIGN, ENEMY Nations regarding several elections, and the enacting of policy. This President has scandals about their scandals; they refuse to turn over emails, documents, tax records, and other evidence that has been LAWFULLY SUBPOENAED. This President orders, bribes and threatens all associated with them to NOT testify, and to NOT turn over any evidence. This president has 8 of their closest campaign and administration aides found or plea GUILTY to multiple FELONY charges, ALL that stem from doing precisely what this President told them to do.

This President can not spell, and has horrid grammar, it is so bad that 5th graders are scene smirking and rolling their eyes while in a photo op of this President speaking. This President in speeches, interviews, and on social media shows anger, frustration, rage, greed, lust, and a growing inability to speak cogently. This President’s mental and physical health is poor and getting noticeably worse each day.

This President after being investigated WAS determined that if she/he were NOT President that they WOULD be indicted, arrested, and on their way to prison. In documents, reports, and Congressional testimony…this President is accused, and guilty, of crimes…

Should, and would, the Republican Congress then move swiftly to impeach and remove Hillary? Obama? Biden? Kerry? 

The answer is clearly YES. Yes the GOP WOULD move to impeach and remove Hillary, Obama, Biden, or Kerry. And be quick and determined about it.

Well, there is a REPUBLICAN President that HAS done exactly, and ALL of this, and IS STILL DOING IT, AND MUCH MORE THAT WAS LEFT OUT DUE TO TIME AND SPACE RESTRAINTS.

This Republican President IS Donald Trump.

Every Conservative and every “Christian” defending and supporting Trump is, at best, DELUDED, or, at worst, as corrupt as he is.

====

DENIAL.

Right now, at this very instance, every defender and supporter of Trump is mad.

Be honest.

Ask yourself WHY are you mad?

I have many family and close friends, most are Conservative and Christian AND they KNOW and ADMIT that he has said and done a whole lot of these things…and yet…still, astoundingly, support and defend Trump.

WHY?

YOU KNOW FULL GOOD AND WELL THAT IF THIS WERE HILLARY OR ANY OTHER DEMOCRAT YOU WOULD BE DEAD-SET AGAINST THEM.

Yet because it is Trump saying and doing THE EXACT SAME THINGS YOU WOULD RIP BALLISTIC ON HILLARY ABOUT….you defend and support him.

WHY?

YOU argue and debate saying “But the judge picks” [BOTH Trump’s Supreme Court picks have ALREADY sided with the Liberal Justices at least TWICE. AND BOTH, along with Trump’s hand picked Crohn-ie for Attorney General, Billie “Back Scratcher” Barr, think that the President should be immune to scrutiny and investigation, and categorise investigation into REAL CRIMES and Impeachment as being a coup and an overthrow of government, while KNOWING that America’s Founding Fathers made it an integral part of THE CONSTITUTION.]

YOU argue and debate saying “But Trump’s tax cuts” [Which were written and worded to benefit WALL Street, NOT Main Street, and are grossly offset by Trump’s stupid tariffs/tax war on the poor, middle class, and the farmer, auto industry, and small business. Add to that Trump’s MARXIST $1,400,000,000,000 SPENDING BILL- that’s 1.4 TRILLION DOLLARS in one felled swoop!]

YOU argue and debate saying “Trump cut 60 million dollars from Planned ParentHOOD” [BUT then gave PP MULTIPLE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. That cut was like robbing a Quik Trip of a NICKLE!!]

AGAIN, WHY DO YOU DEFEND AND SUPPORT TRUMP????

WHY?

Trump is deluded and delusional. Corrupt and criminal. Depraved and dishonest.

Conservative, Christian, WHY do YOU support and defend him? WHY?

ADMIT you were, and are wrong. ADMIT that Trump is NO different than any Democrat, and far worse than many Democrats. ADMIT that Trump is corrupt, lying, a fraud, and a Criminal.

A Fundamental, Evangelical, Baptist Church sign reads:

THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE FOR YOU IS TO CONTINUE IN DENIAL.

 

 

==================

THE (ONLY) END HOPE.

The problem?

Too many have placed their faith, trust, and hope in MAN.

THAT is the root of Epic Failure. Period.

Even back with the Founding Fathers, Lincoln, Coolidge, or most recently, Reagan our faith, trust, and hope should not have been in man. 

They were good and great men…but…they were JUST MEN. And as such, like you and me, had faults and failures, sins…weaknesses.

THE Answer then, as it IS now, is ONLY put trust in those who ARE trustworthy and faithful, and ONLY as they continued to manifest and exhibit virtues worthy of following.

BUT NEVER were we, NOR are we, to place our trust in MAN. ONLY GOD NEVER FAILS.

Proverbs 3:5-6 

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

What has happened to the Conservatives and to the church world is too many got spoiled with having a Reagan that they looked for another Reagan…ignoring that Reagan was JUST A MAN, and like us all, had faults, failures, and sins. Reagan’s amnesty, though he intended it to have teeth, was the beginning of the end of our southern border.

No.

What we need is not another Reagan.

And Trump is FAR FROM anything remotely good/moral.

No.

What…WHO we need is The Lord Jesus Christ. Period. ALWAYS. ONLY.

To wrap this up…what does Rev. Larry Lee Wallenmeyer see and hear going on, and about to happen?

I see all that Christ Jesus and His Disciples mentioned above coming to a head, happening all at once… I see things have gotten steadily worse and worse, are at a horrid and depraved state GLOBALLY…also…I see NO ONE with the will or thew ability to do anything about it.

There IS a very small remnant that has not bowed their knee to Baal…very small remnant, Isaiah 1:9.

I see the entire world racing to Globalism/One World Government, looking for “The One”…and in return getting The Great Tribulation and Armageddon.

I see The Lord Jesus Christ coming FOR His Church, His Bride, soon…very SOON.

As the world rocks and reels toward ruin-
the Church of The Lord Jesus Christ is about TO RISE!

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

This IS Reality: Plain and Simple

The scrutiny of Trump & Co. pre-dates his 2015 announcement to run for President. Trump has been under criminal and civil investigation for decades. Due to his wealth, name, and notoriety he has escaped jail time, BUT has had large and heavy fines levied against him due his unethical, fraudulent, bigoted, and criminal activities. Trump is so crooked, so corrupt that by June 2016 (3 years ago)Trump already had 3,500 cases brought AGAINST him in State and/or Federal Courts!

For a VERY detailed look and listing of Trump’s Mafia connections, Russian mob connections, and Criminal activity read this: REMARKABLE TREASON .

So when one hears Trump and his deflect-n-defenders rattle off Putin/KGB talking points in Trump’s defense one should NOT be surprised. This is merely a continuation of “The Trump Life”.

Trump and his supporters, aka disciples, rattle off the litany of Proven-To-Be-BOGUS defense talking-points, like: “witch hunt”, “fake news”, “deep state”, “Crowd Strike”, “Obama/Hillary”, “exonerated fully”…

BUT…what IS The Reality of all this?

Under the Mueller probe alone 6 close Trump associates have been found GUILTY of crimes related to TRUMP! 

Since the impeachment and investigating into the Ukrainian blackmail and bribery two more of Trump’s associates are charged and arrested for crimes!

Questions:

  1. WHY would a “squeaky clean boy scout” hand pick and surround himself with nothing but crooks, liars, frauds, pedophiles, rapists, Mafia, Russian mobsters, thieves, and assorted CRIMINALS?
  2.  How come ALL of this “squeaky clean boy scout’s” closest friends, advisors, associates, business partners, family, administrative staff, lawyers are crooked, depraved, and corrupt, many either IN prison, indicted, or under investigation?
  3. How can someone be “squeaky clean boy scout” who has had 13 FAILED businesses, (MORE SOURCING), and has BANKRUPTED 6/SIX BUSINESSES, including hotels, resorts, his own airline, and even CASINOS! His supporter drones argue, “Yeah, but he’s NEVER personally be bankrupt, just his businesses.” Yes, which left ALL those employed unemployed and penniless, left the investors with yuge losses, BUT lined Trump (and the Mob’s) coffers with cash!
  4. Lastly, how can Trump be a “squeaky clean boy scout” when from the 1970’s-2016 he had ALREADY accumulated over 3,500 civil and criminal cases AGAINST him, and since 2016 has been Trump and his pals have been under court scrutiny by several state and Federal courts, by the FBI, by Special Counsel (Kudos Robert Mueller), by 3 Congressional committees, and at least 2 Inspector Generals, and now is being Impeached?

 

THAT was with what we knew in July, 5 months ago. Mueller stated emphatically that Trump could be charged with CRIMES upon leaving office…

And today…add to that this:

Over 500 law professors say Trump engaged in ‘impeachable conduct’ in his dealings with Ukraine

SOURCE .

President Donald Trump meets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the InterContinental Barclay New York hotel during the United Nations General Assembly, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019, in New York. AP Photo/Evan Vucci

  • Over 500 legal scholars signed an open letter stating President Donald Trump engaged in “impeachable conduct” in his dealings with Ukraine.
  • The letter said there’s “overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election.”
  • The scholars said both chambers of Congress “would be acting well within their constitutional powers” if they ultimately vote to impeach and remove Trump.

====================

So…what are all you Trump supporters going to say about this?

  1. He’s innocent. (HA!)
  2. He’s being framed by “Deep State”, “Fake News”, Obama”, “Hillary”, “Biden”…(HA!)
  3. He’s uncouth, but not criminal. (HA!)
  4. Witch Hunt! (HA!)

 

 

REALITY IS THAT TRUMP IS:

 

This “witch hunt” sure got a LOT of “witches”…

 

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

Reality vs. Myth

In the Trump Universe of “Alternative Facts” the G.O.P., the former “Party of Lincoln, Coolidge, and Reagan”, the Republicans say THIS NONSENSE:

GOP impeachment report claims Trump did nothing wrong

SOURCE .

 

President Trump committed “no quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, or abuse of power,” Republicans on the House committees investigating the Ukraine controversy have concluded in a 110-page report reviewed by Axios ahead of its formal release.

Why it matters: The report provides the basis for Republicans’ rejection of Democrats’ anticipated articles of impeachment against the president for the remainder of the House proceedings…

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a statement responding to the report:

The Minority’s rebuttal document, intended for an audience of one, ignores voluminous evidence that the president used the power of his office to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political rival by withholding military aid and a White House meeting the President of Ukraine desperately sought. In so doing, the President undermined our national security and the integrity of our elections.”

MORE ON “ALTERNATIVE FACTS” . AND HERE .

===============

Some pertinent and logical questions IF Trump really did NO wrong, then:

  1. Why fire Comey?
  2. Why pressure Sessions to “retire”?
  3. Why the continued train of lies about “witch hunt”, “deep state”, Obama, Hillary, now Biden, “Fake News”, and the stupid Alex Jones-esque conspiracies??
  4. Why the document destruction?
  5. Why the stonewalling?
  6. Why ORDER all involved to NOT testify and NOT provide evidence?
  7. Why tamper with evidence?
  8. Why tamper with and threaten witnesses?
  9. Why withhold evidence that has repeatedly been lawfully subpoenaed?
  10. Why say that you WILL, and then repeatedly refuse to testify and/or be interviewed UNDER OATH?

Not one bit of that is the work of an INNOCENT man.

REALITY SAYS:

Report: Trump Knew About Complaint Before Aid Released

He distances himself from Giuliani’s Ukraine work

SOURCE .

By Rob Quinn,  Newser Staff
Posted Nov 27, 2019 6:43 AM CST

(NEWSER) – New allegations in the New York Times could be big news for the impeachment inquiry, if they can be proven. The Times, citing “two people familiar with the matter,” reports that President Trump knew about the whistleblower’s complaint when he decided to unfreeze military aid to Ukraine. The sources say Trump, who released the aid on Sept. 11, learned in late August that he had been accused of wrongdoing in withholding the aid while pressuring Ukraine’s president to carry out investigations that could help him politically. Trump was told about the complaint by White House counsel Pat Cippolone and other lawyers who were trying to figure out whether they were required to submit it to Congress, the sources say.

Days before Trump released the aid, he told US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland that no “quid pro quo” was involved. According to the Times‘ sources, Trump would have known at the time that investigators suspected otherwise. Bloomberg reports that the president is distancing himself from Rudy Giuliani’s efforts to get Ukraine to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. He told former Fox host Bill O’Reilly in an interview Tuesday that he did not direct his attorney to Ukraine to push for investigations. “No, I didn’t direct him,” Trump said. “No, but you have to understand, Rudy is a great corruption fighter.” Giuliani has said his Ukraine investigation was “done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges.” (Giuliani says he’s not worried about Trump throwing him under the bus.)

=================

The LAST line above is pure fantasy. The reality is, YES, Trump knew he was being reported for “quid pro quo”, and, YES, Trump is distancing himself from Giuliani’s Ukrainian “work”…aka as further evidence and witness tampering. BUT…and with Trump this is a BIG butt, the last line saying Giuliani is not worried about Trump throwing him under the bus is pure fantasy, aka LIE.

Here’s the reality:

‘I have insurance’: Giuliani warns Trump to not throw him ‘under the bus’ over Ukraine scandal during Fox News interview

Published

SOURCE .

On Fox News Saturday, Rudy Giuliani sat for an interview with Ed Henry, and appeared to suggest that President Donald Trump wouldn’t dare let him go down for the Ukraine scheme, because Giuliani could take him down with him.

“I’ve seen things written like ‘He is going to throw me under the bus,’” said Giuliani. “When they say that, I say, ‘He isn’t, but I have insurance.’”…

…He also accused his indicted associate Lev Parnas of lying about the role of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) in the Ukraine scheme, and appeared to threaten him as well, warning that he “could make himself into another Michael Cohen” — a reference to Trump’s former lawyer who was excommunicated from the president’s circle and is now serving a federal prison sentence for fraud and tax evasion.

=====================

THE MYTH: Trump wont throw me under the bus. We have a “very good” relationship.

THE REALITY: Rudy threatens to take Trump down with him, AND threatens Lev Parnas, a former associate of HIS, who has been charged with fraud and corruption linked TO THE UKRAINE!

===============

REALITY?

Pelosi to Trump: You’re Invited

Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer invite the president to stand up for himself

SOURCE .

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited President Donald Trump to testify in front of investigators in the House impeachment inquiry ahead of a week that will see several key witnesses appear publicly, the AP reports. Pushing back against accusations from the president that the process has been stacked against him, Pelosi said Trump is welcome to appear or answer questions in writing, if he chooses. “If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame, then we look forward to seeing it,” she said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’ Face the Nation. Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants,” she said. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer echoed that suggestion.

“If Donald Trump doesn’t agree with what he’s hearing, doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet. He should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath,” Schumer told reporters. He said the White House’s insistence on blocking witnesses from cooperating begs the question: “What is he hiding?”

=================

Trump’s MYTH:

He said he’d provide “written testimony” UNDER OATH to the Impeachment hearings.

REALITY?

Friday, December 6th was the deadline to so. Did Trump follow through on the dual invitation AS HE SAID HE WOULD?

Let The Record show that the answer is NO. NO, Trump did NOT comply at all. Whine? Yes.

Blather with rage? YES.

Lie? OF COURSE, THAT’S ALL TRUMP DOES IS LIE.

But show up or send written testimony UNDER OATH?? Ya gotta be kiddin’ me! NO.

======================

MORE TRUMP MYTH:

Trump Says He Knows ‘Nothing’ About Overheard Phone Call

Diplomat says Trump asked about ‘investigations’ while talking to another diplomat

SOURCE .

…The first two witnesses were William Taylor, the top US diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs. Some highlights:

  • Another phone call: In a new piece of information, Taylor testified that a member of his staff overheard Trump ask about the “the investigations” during a phone call with diplomat Gordon Sondland, reports the AP. The call took place one day after Trump’s call to the Ukraine president in July. (Sondland and the Taylor staffer were in a restaurant together when Trump called.) During the conversation, Sondland told Trump the Ukrainians were poised to move forward. After the call, the Taylor staffer asked Sondland what Trump thought about Ukraine. “Sondland responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden, which (Rudy) Giuliani was pressing for,” said Taylor, per Axios.
  • More on that: Politico sees the call as “an explosive new detail,” and the Washington Post agrees, saying it ties Trump “more directly to the effort to pressure Ukraine to probe his political opponents.” Plus, it undermines Trump’s previous assertion that he barely knows Sondland. …Taylor said his “clear understanding” was that Ukraine aid and investigations were linked…
  • When Kent was asked if there was any truth to the theory that Joe Biden pushed Ukraine to fire a prosecutor in order to protect his son, he answered, “None whatsoever,” per the Wall Street Journal. He shot down the conspiracy theory, one pushed by the White House, that it was Ukraine, not Russia, that interfered in the 2016 election. “I think it’s amply clear that Russian interference was at the heart of the interference.”

 

Trump’s MYTH that he “knew nothing” about phone calls, knew nothing about Giuliani’s “mission” to and in the Ukraine????

REALITY is that a table full of people on TWO separate occasions heard on the Trump side and on the Sondland or Giuliani side the conversations!!!

5 Big Lines From House Panel’s Impeachment Report

Intelligence committee outlines case against Trump

SOURCE.

The next step in the impeachment process has unfolded: The House Intelligence Committee has released a 300-page report outlining evidence against President Trump. The panel is expected to approve the report in a party-line vote later Tuesday and send it to the Judiciary Committee ahead of that panel’s first impeachment hearing on Wednesday, reports the AP. Some of the big lines, from the AP, NBC NewsPolitico, and the Washington Post:

  • The impeachment inquiry into Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, uncovered a months long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”
  • [T]he President placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the US presidential election process, and endangered US national security.”
  • To compel the Ukrainian President to do his political bidding, President Trump conditioned two official acts on the public announcement of the investigations: a coveted White House visit and critical US military assistance Ukraine needed to fight its Russian adversary.”
  • “President Trump engaged in an unprecedented campaign of obstruction of this impeachment inquiry.”
  • “The damage to our system of checks and balances, and to the balance of power within our three branches of government, will be long-lasting and potentially irrevocable if the president’s ability to stonewall Congress goes unchecked. Any future president will feel empowered to resist an investigation into their own wrongdoing, malfeasance, or corruption, and the result will be a nation at far greater risk of all three.”

TRUMP MYTH?

WITCH HUNT! FAKE NEWS! CONSPIRACY! LIES! AND LASTLY: “I KNOW/KNEW NOTHING!”

BUT reality says…

Adam Schiff
@RepAdamSchiff

Over 500 legal scholars agree President Trump committed impeachable conduct: President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking foreign interference in our elections for his personal, political benefit at the expense of national security interests.

SOURCE .

  • Over 500 legal scholars signed an open letter stating President Donald Trump engaged in “impeachable conduct” in his dealings with Ukraine.

  • The letter said there’s “overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election.”

  • The scholars said both chambers of Congress “would be acting well within their constitutional powers” if they ultimately vote to impeach and remove Trump.

Republicans argue that Trump had ‘valid’ concerns about Ukraine corruption in new report

SOURCE .

In their impeachment defense of President Trump, House Republicans will argue that his decision to withhold military aid from Ukraine was based on “valid” concerns and not politics, a conclusion that’s at odds with sworn testimony from the inquiry…

These lying GOP Representatives and Congressmen went so far as to say:

Republican senator refuses to stop parroting Kremlin propaganda

SOURCE .

Sen. John Kennedy argued in a testy exchange with NBC’s Chuck Todd that “both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election,” claiming without evidence that former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko “actively worked” for Hillary Clinton.

Todd responded: “You realize that the only other person selling this argument outside of the United States is Vladimir Putin. … Are you at all concerned that you have been duped?”

MORE SOURCES …CONTAINS VIDEO.

HERE’S THE KEY EXCHANGE:

KENNEDY: You should read the articles, Chuck, because they are well-documented. And I believe that a Ukrainian district court in December 2018 slapped down several Ukrainian officials for meddling in our elections as a violation of the Ukrainian law. Now, I did not report those facts, and reputable journalists reported those facts. Does that mean that the Ukrainian leaders were more aggressive than Russia? No. Russia was very aggressive and they’re much more sophisticated, but the fact that Russia was so aggressive does not exclude the fact that President Poroshenko actively worked for Secretary Clinton.

TODD: My goodness. Wait a minute. Senator Kennedy, you now have the president of Ukraine saying that he actively worked for the Democratic nominee for president. I mean come on. You realize that the only other person selling this argument outside of the United States is Vladimir Putin. … You have just accused the former president of Ukraine — You have done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do. Are you at all concerned that you have been duped?

KENNEDY: No. Just read the articles.

What to do about a senator who neglects his obligations to attend briefings, who perpetuates propaganda from an adversary and who deliberately misleads the public by conflating meddling/interference by an adversary and public criticism of a candidate?

What to do about the Kremlin’s propagandists

SOURCE .

Dec. 2, 2019 at 6:45 a.m. CST

Sen. John Neely Kennedy (R-La.) once before walked back an assertion that maybe Ukraine was responsible for meddling in the 2016 election. That has not deterred him from repeating the Kremlin’s propaganda. Appearing on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, he was at it again.

When moderator Chuck Todd asked him if he was not simply doing Russia’s dirty work, Kennedy responded, “I think both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election. I think it’s been well documented in the Financial Times, in Politico, in the Economist, in the Washington Examiner, even on CBS, that the prime minister of Ukraine, the interior minister, the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States, the head of the Ukrainian Anti-Corruption League, all meddled in the election on social media and otherwise.”

This is false, patently false. None of these outlets identified manipulation or interference in our election. Individual Ukrainians have publicly criticized President Trump, but Kennedy prefers to utter the Kremlin propaganda line. He acknowledged that he did not attend a briefing that Fiona Hill referenced “that actually this entire effort to frame Ukraine for the Russian meddling of 2016, of which you, you just made this case that they’ve done it, that actually this is an effort of Russia propaganda, that this is a Russian intelligence propaganda campaign in order to get people like you to say these things about Ukraine,” as Todd put it. An incredulous Todd soldiered on:

TODD: They’re trying to frame Ukraine. You apparently were briefed about this in the United States Senate by intelligence officials. Are you at all concerned you’re doing Russian intelligence work here?
KENNEDY: I was not briefed. . . .
I wasn’t briefed. Dr. Hill is entitled to her opinion. But when the Economist magazine —
TODD: When does opinion, when does opinion become fact? Does 17 intelligence services saying it, does every Western intelligence ally saying Russia did this? I’m just sort of confused, at what point is it no longer an opinion for you?
KENNEDY: I don’t think it’s an opinion. I think it’s a fact.

Kennedy persisted in naming publications that did not confirm his claim of Ukrainian “interference.” Todd tried yet again:

TODD: I mean, my goodness, wait a minute, Senator Kennedy, you now have the president of Ukraine saying he actively worked for the Democratic nominee for president. I mean, now come on. I mean, I got to put up — you realize the only other person selling this argument outside the United States is this man, Vladimir Putin. This is what he [PUTIN] said on November 20th: “Thank God nobody is accusing us anymore of interfering in U.S. elections. Now they’re accusing Ukraine. Well, let them sort this out among themselves.” You just accused a former president of Ukraine. You have done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do. Are you at all concerned that you’ve been duped?
KENNEDY: No, because you — just read the articles. . . .
TODD: Do you think there’s a difference in a country criticizing a presidential candidate who essentially endorsed another country’s invasion and annexation of a part of their country as equivalent to what Russia did with the DNC?

At that point Kennedy switched topics — to falsely claim Trump was not allowed to invite witnesses in the House Judiciary Committee’s upcoming impeachment hearings. (An offer is outstanding.)

What to do about a senator who neglects his obligations to attend briefings, who perpetuates propaganda from an adversary of the United States and who deliberately misleads the public by conflating meddling/interference by an adversary and public criticism of a candidate?

Half of the Trump administration’s latest trade-war bailout for farmers went to just a 10th of recipients in the program

Trump Pledged to Help Small Farms. Aid Is Going to Big Ones

 Updated on 
  • Group studied first tranche of 2019 trade-aid payments
  • Top 1% of beneficiaries received 13% of money distributed
  • Donald Trump promised he would help embattled small farmers caught in the crossfire of his trade war with China. But big farms so far have been the main beneficiaries of the billions of dollars being distributed in aid payments.

But remember folks: Collectivism is good when Trump wants to fight a pointless trade war! He’s fighting! Like Glass Joe but he’s fighting!
