The Normalization of Evil

AN IRREFUTABLE FOUNDATION.

If I simply wrote and published this beginning with the dealing of current and ongoing issues some would argue that this is “just your opinion”. So I will begin with a solid Foundation upon God’s Holy, Eternal, and Immutable Word, and will throughout reference, quote, and link to God’s Word, The Holy Bible.  

Laying The Foundation.

Isaiah 5:18-23 King James Version (KJV)

18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:

19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

THE CONTEXT .

This is not new.

Lucifer convinced one third of Heaven’s Angels that The Almighty Creator God “was bad”, and that he, Lucifer (later to be called Satan) “was good”.

When later God created Adam and Eve Satan did this again to them, and upon they’re choosing “evil as good” sin with it’s penalty fell upon us all. So this is not new.

The reason it is important now is because here we are, some 6,000-8,000 years later and have LEARNED NOTHING.

Mankind still substitutes “evil for good” and “good for evil”.

THE STANDARD OF GOOD AND EVIL IS DEFINED BY THE LORD GOD HIMSELF HERE:

EXODUS 20 

LEVITICUS CHPTS. 18-20

ROMANS 1:16-32

I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11

GALATIANS 5:16-25

EPHESIANS 5:2-13

I TIMOTHY 4:1-3 AND

II TIMOTHY 3:1-7

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

TODAY’S EXAMPLES OF “GOOD IS EVIL/EVIL IS GOOD”

ILHAN ABDULLAHI OMAR.

Will NOT get into a detailed tit-for-tat discussion on what Ilahan Abdullahi Omar said. It is a matter of public record that anyone can Google and read the back and forth about, so it is pointless to simply argue about everyone else is arguing about. Instead I will look at the assumptions folks are making about her Muslim faith. Some say Islam is good, a religion of peace. Others argue it’s bad, anything BUT a religion of peace. Still others say it’s “personal and should not be a part of the discussion”.

BUT when ANYONE runs for ANY PUBLIC office their views, beliefs, and associations become PUBLIC too. We The People HAVE A GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO KNOW THOSE WHO LABOR AMONG US AS LEADERS .

Instead of bantering about Ilahan Abdullahi Omar’s words, let us look to the most important, foundational world-view she has and holds, Islam.

A LOOK AT ISLAM FROM ISLAM’S P.O.V. .

We will have a NARROW focus here. We will keep ourselves to looking at what The Qu’ran teaches/says, what Mohammed and subsequent “prophets”, mullahs, Imans, and Ayatollahs have said/written, and to real, actual HISTORY.

ISLAM AND HUMAN RIGHTS

SLAVERY

FORCED CONVERSION

FREEDOM OF RELIGION

DEMOCRACY AND CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLICS: FREEDOM AND LIBERTY

HOMOSEXUALITY/LESBIANISM

TORTURE

STONING AND ADULTERY

WOMEN’S RIGHTS: VEILS

WOMEN WORTH LESS THAN MEN

WIFE BEATING

DIVORCE

MEN IN CHARGE AS DICTATORS

POLYGAMY

BEFRIENDING NON-MUSLIMS

STEALING

CHARITY AND AID

SHARIA/ISLAMIC LAW

MYTHS OF ISLAM [there are several myths told non-Muslims juxtaposed with the truth, each has their own link. Will only link to most pertinent here.]

ISLAM MEANS “PEACE” 

JIHAD MEANS “INNER STRUGGLE”

ISLAM IS A “RELIGION OF PEACE”

MUSLIMS “BELIEVE IN JESUS”

ISLAM IS TOLERANT OF OTHER RELIGIONS

ISLAM FACILITATED THE GOLDEN ERA OF SCIENCE

ISLAM IS COMPLETELY INCOMPATIBLE WITH TERRORISM

ISLAM COMPARED TO CHRISTIANITY

10 REASONS ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE

THE CRUSADES WERE AN ACT OF DEFENSE AGAINST MUSLIM INVASIONS

Here are some quick facts…

The first Crusade began in 1095… 460 years after the first Christian city was overrun by Muslim armies, 457 years after Jerusalem was conquered by Muslim armies, 453 years after Egypt was taken by Muslim armies, 443 after Muslims first plundered Italy, 427 years after Muslim armies first laid siege to the Christian capital of Constantinople, 380 years after Spain was conquered by Muslim armies, 363 years after France was first attacked by Muslim armies, 249 years after the capital of the Christian world, Rome itself, was attacked by a Muslim army, and only after centuries of church burnings, killings, enslavement and forced conversions of Christians.

By the time the Crusades finally began, Muslim armies had conquered two-thirds of the Christian world.  

Europe had been harassed by Muslims since the first few years following Muhammad’s death.  As early as 652, Muhammad’s followers launched raids on the island of Sicily, waging a full-scale occupation 200 years later that lasted almost a century and was punctuated by massacres, such as that at the town of Castrogiovanni, in which 8,000 Christians were put to death.  In 1084, ten years before the first crusade, Muslims staged another devastating Sicilian raid, burning churches in Reggio, enslaving monks and raping an abbey of nuns before carrying them into captivity…. 

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

THIS IS THE BIGGEST ONE BECAUSE NON-MUSLIMS ARE TOLD (BY MUSLIMS) ONE THING, WHEN THE OPPOSITE IS IN FACT TRUE:

MUSLIMS LYING TO NON-MUSLIMS

 

THE TRUTH? THE TRUTH IS THAT MUSLIMS LIE TO ALL NON-MUSLIMS, IT IS PART AND PARCEL OF THEIR DESIGN TO EITHER BY DECEPTION, BY “GUILTING”, OR FORCE TO TAKE OVER THE ENTIRE WORLD.

You can say you didn’t know that.

You can even simply choose not to agree.

But you can NOT say that what was just told you, what you just read was NOT from Muslim/Islamic sources, citations, and actual, real History.

For any to ignore, neglect, reject this is to “call evil good” and to “call good evil”…you have been warned and educated. 

BTW, Islam is NOT a race- it is a religion, more accurately, it is an AUTHORITARIAN WORLD-VIEW THAT CODIFIES ALL THE WORST OF MANKIND AND WEAPONIZES IT AGAINST ALL NON-MUSLIMS. It is NOT “racist” to be anti-Islam. Actually, if you’re NOT anti-Islam you are either Muslim or one of it’s victims, slaves, or dupes.

TURN OUR ATTENTION HOME: TRUMPISM AND LIBERALISM

So while there rages debate over that which is un-debatable to any who study the above, there is another war going on against culture, morals, and principles, one that is being waged by Liberalism. I include “Trumpism” because it is the most recent mutant variation and renaming of Liberalism. Liberalism by other names and titles is also known as:

  • SOCILAISM
  • FACSISM
  • MARXISM
  • NAZISM
  • BIG GOVERNMENT AUTHORITARIANISM
  • FABIANISM
  • COMMUNISM
  • PROGRESSIVISM
  • SECULAR HUMANISM/ATHEISM

“What?!! Are you crazy to lump those all together?!!”

Check here .

At the link provided above you will see a list of a plethora of Liberal views, principles and alliances that include:

EVER INCREASING TAXATION

EVER INCREASING GOVERNMENT TRGULATION

ABORTION/INFANTICIDE

EUTHANASIA

GOVERNMENT THEFT OF PROPERTY: TAXATION AND EMINENT DOMAIN

ATTACK AND REGULATE FREE SPEECH

ATTACK AND REGULATE GUN AND PROPERTY RIGHTS

ATTACK THE CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH FAITH

ATTACK, MOCK AND SUBVERT THE CONSTITUTION/BILL OF RIGHTS

BE SOFT ON CRIME/PUNISH LAW ABIDING CITIZENS…

So far we’ve seen two independent groups who are the codification of lies and deception all to undermine good and establish evil.

In closing we’ll look at the arts: music, painting, sculpture, photos, and film (movies and tv).

THE ARTS.

For almost 6 years I was an Assistant Supervisor of Security at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Fine Art. I saw some of the greatest pieces of art EVER. The Dutch, French, Italian, and British masters, men like Frederick Church who painted the scenic landscape of Jerusalem from The Mount of Olives. I also had to the great misfortune to see, and protect, a “horse” made out of sticks and chicken-wire, and a Jackson Pollock “painting” where the “artist” stood on a ladder and dripped and splattered paint on an un-prepped canvas. 

Let me quote Al Capp here for he sums up the changing in art quite well:

“Abstract art? A product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered,”

Study all the various arts. Study each’s timeline of development and change. You will notice a steady, progressive intrusion of the ugly, vile, crass, vulgar, lewd, and profane. 

I’ve spoke already about paintings and sculptures, let me address music and film (tv/movies).

Music has always had two veins of inspiration, as does all art. God and The Bible on the one side. Man and his (vain) imagination on the other. BUT for the most part what we know as “pop Art/mainstream art” had almost always reflected the influence of Judeo-Christianity, even if the artist themselves was not a believer…but this began to change in all fields about the same time, give or take a little bit.

Instead of art (all fields) trying to convey a wholesome, uplifting message, or some great truth…ugliness began to creep in. Not just aesthetic ugliness, physical ugliness, but moral ugliness.

Things long considered taboo began to become prominent themes. Things like pornography, nudity, obscenity, profanity, rebellion, drunkenness, drugs, violence, and the occult became more evident, and even “the norm” in pop, mainstream art.

 Songs glorifying sex outside of marriage, sex before marriage, defying authority,sodomy, same-sex relations, pedophilia, necrophilia… and rebellion in general, and as one song said “a rebel without a clue”…all were THEMES of song after song that were HITS.

The saddest part is the church LET IT HAPPEN.

The Church went from railing against the flood tide of depravity and perversion, to grudgingly accepting it, to now embracing and promoting it to the point that those who STILL adhere to Biblical, traditional ideals, morals, and principles are scorned and ridiculed.

How has this affected the church, and by extension affected the culture as a whole?

Behaviour that God/The Bible calls sin, wickedness, abomination, depravity (see the long list of Scriptures above) is NOW common-place even IN the (so-called) “church”!! It is nothing “new” to hear of some “minister”/”christian” committing fornication, adultery, theft, homosexuality/lesbianism, smoking, boozing, drugs, porn, lying, fraud, and defending the MURDER of innocent babies!

Truly. Evil is called good. Good is called evil. And the remnant that hold fast to God and HIS Word are mocked by “the church” and by the world as being “narrow-minded”, “old fashioned”, “out of touch”, “not PC”, “judge-a-mental” and “bigoted”…when ALL we are is Biblical, correct, honest, and sounding a loving warning of God’s displeasure, and soon coming wrath upon sin.

Essentially, there are only two camps to be in.

God’s through HIS grace and The Blood of Jesus…

Any other camp is under the Domain of Satan.

God WINS…I choose HIS side. “I have decided to follow Jesus…”

GOP’s Issa: Not a Shocker if Trump OKed Russia Meeting

‘Nobody’s going to be surprised’

By Polly Davis Doig,  Newser Staff
Posted Jul 29, 2018 7:32 AM CDT

SOURCE .

(NEWSER) – If it emerges that President Trump knew about Donald Trump Jr.’s much discussed meeting with Russians, you won’t be able to knock Rep. Darrell Issa over with a feather. In an interview with Fox News, via the Hill, Issa says that if the president is “proven to have not told the whole truth about the fact that campaigns look for dirt, and if someone offers it, you listen to them, nobody’s going to be surprised. There are some things in politics that you just take for granted.” When asked whether such a finding would have any impact, Issa was dismissive, saying, “businessmen listen to almost everyone who might be helpful, and … they make pragmatic decisions about how to make bad stories go away.” Per Mediaite, Issa put the bullseye on Michael Cohen, calling him “a turncoat lawyer, a lawyer who deserves to be disbarred for a number of his actions including recording his client clandestinely.”

[MY NOTE: Hmmm, so, to Issa treason is SOP? We’re NOT talking about another U.S. citizen offering LEGAL info, we’re talking about an ENEMY, FOREIGN POWER COLLUDING/CONSPIRING WITH A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TO STEAL AN ELECTION!!]

OR DOES ANYONE REMEMBER A WHEN A REPUBLICAN SAID THIS AFTER TRUMP WAS ELECTED??

“The country has never before now elected somebody who is so manifestly unfit intellectually, morally, temperamentally, for the office of President of the United States”.. – Steve Schmidt, Republican

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

AND NO MATTER WHAT BILLIE BAR SAID IN HIS 4 PAGE MEMO ABOUT MUELLER’S OVER 400 PAGE REPORT- WITH PUBLIC MEMOS FOR EACH SECTION…DOES ANYONE REMEMBER WHEN THIS ADMISSION WAS MADE???

Russian politician says on live TV that Russia stole U.S. presidency

SOURCE .

 

Russian politician Vyacheslav Nikonov, a member of the Duma, said U.S. “intelligence missed it when Russian intelligence stole the president of the United States.” He made the remarks on a Russian panel show, “Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov.”

The episode centered on the U.S.’ diminishing power on the world stage and the resulting chaos, The Hillreports. University of Virginia professor Allen Lynch told The Hill that Nikonov’s statement was directed at the idea that the U.S. must be losing power if it can’t uphold the integrity of its own electoral system.

Julia Davis, who monitors Russian media, first noted the comments on her Twitter account last night.

What’s more shocking than a Russian acknowledging effective meddling is that some among us will continue to deny it…

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

FOR TWO YEARS MUELLER AND HIS TEAM SAID NOTHING, ZIPPO, ZERO, ZILCH…BUT AFTER BILLIE BARR LIES IN A 4 PAGE PAGE “SUMMATION”/COVER UP OF MUELLER AND TEAM’S OVER 400 PAGE REPORT…THEY SPEAK…AND IT’S NOT GOOD FOR BARR OR TRUMP.

TWITTER PATRIOT:

SOURCE .

We haven’t heard a peep for two years from Mueller’s team till tonight. Think how bad it must be for these highly disciplined professionals to speak out against Attorney General William Barr.

Think about how angry the Mueller Team must be after two years and mountains of evidence they collected to support their work. Barr effectively made their investigation meaningless if we see no report and Barr tells us what he wanted them to find. This is far from over.

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

New York Times: Some Mueller investigators say their report is worse for Trump than Barr says

[MY NOTE: THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR TRUMP NOR BARR…WHICH IS GREAT FOR AMERICA.]

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

ANOTHER TWITTER PATRIOT, BILL PALMER WROTE YESTERDAY, SOURCE :

Donald Trump’s day so far

– Democrats move to subpoena the Mueller report

– Mueller’s team says report is bad for Trump, and Barr is lying about it

– Democrats formally seek Trump’s tax returns

– Everything is hitting the fan

– Trump is hiding under his bed

– It’s still only 8pm

William Barr won’t be laughing about the Mueller report for long:

 | 

The time has come for the moment of truth. The House Judiciary Committee has approved a subpoena to release the full Mueller Report and related documents. Will Attorney General Barr fight it? Yes. He is no white hat, as we’ve all come to see by now.

He was asked what would happen if he was presented a subpoena by the committee. He laughed and said, “We’ll have to follow the law.”

Wow. That was funny. It’s even funnier that such satire about following the law came from our own head honcho of the law, our Attorney General.

 

Jokes aside, it’s no joke that the Mueller report will be awful for Trump and his family. And it’s no joke that if Barr obstructs justice with regard to this report, he could be looking at a stint in prison. But it seems clear he will fight its release. And while it winds its way through the courts, we will see Chairman Jerry Nadler issue more subpoenas, and then even more subpoenas.

Others out there have at least pieces of what ended up going into the full Mueller report, such as the federal prosecutors working for the Eastern District of Virginia and the Southern District of New York. It’s doubtful they’ll be so reticent to share their materials with Congress if they’re subpoenaed…

===========

AND, LASTLY…

ANOTHER TWITTER PATRIOT WROTE:

SOURCE .

I‘ll be *shocked* if Nadler et al don’t have Barr on the phone for the summaries included in the Mueller document.

They were written to be publicly releasable, meaning no grand jury info and no classified.

No excuses, Barr. Cough ’em up.

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

IT’S TRULY SAD…

 

It’s truly sad that we as nation seem to never learn from past elections and past mistakes.

We’ve had scoundrels run for office before- why didn’t MORE VOTERS do their own research and vette the candidates BEFORE nomination, let alone electing?

We’ve had scandals with elections and election fraud before- why weren’t REAL security precautions taken to AVOID THAT from EVER happening again?? You can’t hack PAPER ballots, so what if it takes weeks to count/check them like Florida in 2000? Also, it is NOT racist to BY LAW require a photo ID PROVING you ARE LEGAL to vote.

There have been crooks and corrupt elected before-  why do we wait SO LONG to do what is CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED to REMOVE these scum and traitors from office? We have the means and the process, WHY NOT USE IT SOONER? If it’s because we have too many corrupt IN office already then VOTE THEM OUT, REMOVE BY IMPEACHMENT, CHARGE, TRY, CONVICT, ARREST…BUT DO SOMETHING!

For a nation that WAS FOUNDED AS a Constitutional Republic, a nation based on THE RULE OF LAW, why have WE allowed corrupt men to circumvent THE CONSTITUTION, and move FROM The Rule of Law to a rule of CORRUPT MEN?

WE ARE BEING HELD HOSTAGE BY A SMALL GROUP OF CORRUPT CRIMINALS (535 in congress, another 100 or so in The WH admin, FROM 5-9 ON SCOTUS)…WHY DO WE THE PEOPLE PUT UP UP WITH THIS?? WHY???

The SOONER we answer these questions and then DO something about it the better!

Rather I will focus my attention on the current events that have America gasping her last IF we do not have a national MIRACLE.

LET’S SEE WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW…

FROM A PATRIOT ON TWITTER:

SOURCE .

Why don’t I need the Mueller Report to know Trump is a Russian Asset? Because:

—He tried to remove (and then refused to enforce) sanctions on Russia

—He softened the GOP platform on Russia

—He sided with Putin over our intel agencies

—He capitulated to NK at Putin’s request

—He publicly asked Russia to hack Hillary’s emails (and they did)

—He hosted Russian oligarchs in the Oval Office and gave away classified intel

—He admitted to firing Comey to end the Russia investigation

—Nearly his entire campaign team has been indicted or pled guilty

—He has never uttered a critical word of Vladimir Putin

—His ties to Russia go back to the late 1970s, when he first began laundering money for organized crime bosses and future oligarchs

—He refuses to allow the release of transcripts of his meetings w/ Putin or his tax returns

—Literally every action he’s taken as President has been a gift to Putin and has hurt America

—He’s divided our nation, weakened our alliances & left us open to more cyberattacks

—He’s stoked racism, bigotry, and white supremacist terrorism

—He’s driving us into another recession

—He echoes obscure talking points from Russian propaganda channels (e.g. calling the people of Montenegro “aggressive” and saying Poland might invade Belarus)

—He says he wants to withdraw from NATO

—He cozies up to oppressive dictators of enemy states while trashing our allies

—He withdraws from treaties like the Paris accords & Iran Nuclear Deal

—He undermines our democracy by attacking the press, the constitution, the independent judiciary, and our security agencies

—He takes the word of dictators like Putin, MBS & Kim Jong-Un over our own officials

—Every cabinet official he appointed is an arch-nemesis of the agency they were put in charge of (this is how you burn a republic down, not “make it great again”)

—He shut down the gov’t for 35 days for no reason

—He disparages war heroes, gold star families & past presidents

—His “historic deregulations” are poisoning our air and water, cutting back women’s reproductive rights, decimating our education system, and destroying the economy

—His immigration policy has banned a religion from the country and resulted in thousands of children in cages

—He demonizes immigrants as criminals, rapists, and gang members

—He has emboldened hate crimes and white supremacist violence across the country and the world

—He keeps the country paralyzed from addressing real crises with his endless scandals, lies, and fake emergencies

—He screwed over the middle class and exploded the deficit by $1.5 trillion to give tax breaks to billionaires

—He tried to take healthcare from 40 million people and replace it with nothing

—His newest budget cuts billions from Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security

—Every word he’s spoken and tweeted & every action he’s taken has been a fundamental disservice to the people of this country & a gift to our enemies

—His line about “doing more in the first 2 years than any President” is nonsense unless you’re talking about harm to the country

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

TO BE CLEAR, these are the observations from a Liberal reporter…but on the whole he is IS RIGHT ON TARGET.

These are things we KNOW regardless of Mueller and his report.

VIDEO .

MORE ON ADAM SCHIFF:

“Undoubtedly there is collusion,” Schiff said in an interview this week, after Attorney General William P. Barr submitted a four-page letter to Congress summarizing key aspects of Mueller’s report. “We will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues. That is, is the president or people around him compromised in any way by a hostile foreign power? . . . It doesn’t appear that was any part of Mueller’s report.”

SCHIFF CONTINUED: on Thursday by accusing Republicans that they “think it’s OK” members of Trump’s team were willing to accept dirt from Russians.

“I don’t think it’s OK. I think It’s immoral, I think it’s unethical, I think it’s unpatriotic, and yes, I think it’s corrupt, and evidence of collusion,” Schiff said. “I do not think that conduct, criminal or not, is OK. And the day we do think that’s OK, is the day we look back and say that is the day America lost its way.”
==================

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff predicted Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller would eventually testify before Congress.

“I think that is inevitably going to take place, Chris,” Schiff told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time.”
“He is going to have to come in and testify.”
Schiff, a California Democrat, said the timing of a potential appearance by Mueller before Congress would likely depend on the timing of Attorney General William Barr providing the public with Mueller’s report and its underlying evidence.
“But at the end of the day, yes, I think both the Congress and the American people are going to want to hear from Bob Mueller,” Schiff said.

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

QUESTIONS:

1. IF TRUMP & CO. ARE INNOCENT, AND THAT INCLUDES THE COMPLICIT AND CORRUPT SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN, THEN WHY HIDE THE FULL MUELLER REPORT THAT YOU CLAIM EXONERATES TRUMP?

2. IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF CONSPIRACY, COLLUSION, OBSTRUCTION, OR ANY OTHER CRIMES, THEN WHY FIGHT TO KEEP IT MUELLER’S FULL REPORT HID?

3. IF PUTIN, N. KOREA, CHINA, IRAN, AND SAUDI ARABIA ARE RIGHT AND ALL OF AMERICAN INTEL, LE, AND JOURNALISM IS WRONG, THEN WHY NOT FULLY DISCLOSE THE MUELLER REPORT AND LAUGH AT US FOR BEING SO WRONG???

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

LEGAL TIP: I learned in my years as a defense lawyer that roughly 100% of the time the party who wants something hidden is the party who thinks it’s damaging to them; in other news, Devin Nunes says the Mueller Report should be “burned up” and McConnell says no one should read it…

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

It’s as clear as day that you’re hiding something from the American public. The question is why are you hiding it and how bad is it?

Your campaign had 23 meetings with Russians and 102 contacts. That’s not normal and we need to know why. Stop hiding the truth

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

Day 3 of relying upon Attorney General Barr’s representation of what the Mueller report said.

So all these guys were lying when they lied about lying? Does this set them free or double their sentences?

• 34 people charged by Mueller (6 Trump associates)

• 3 entities charged by Mueller

• 5 people sentenced to prison

ALL TIED TO TRUMP…

YEP.

America has fallen. Gasping her last. Can we be saved? I don’t see where we have the WILL to so the right thing(s)….so, no. America will not be saved.

Once Again…Just WHOSE Side Is Trump On??

There have been presidents, Democrat and Republican, who were:

  1. Liberal
  2. Corrupt
  3. Reckless and 
  4. Tyrannical.

But none of them had that combined together with the hot-headed, ill-tempered, lying, arrogant, and greedy mess that is Trump.

Though he currently feigns a thin veneer of his own “brand” of Conservatism, Trump is as Liberal as Obama, Hillary, and even FDR.

Though he claims to be the “law and order” president, Trump smears, maligns, daily verbally assaults, tries to shut-up and shut down OUR LE from National to Local.

While trying to pass off that he is the “great deal maker”, and that he practices “extreme vetting”, and “ONLY hires the BEST”…he is as fast, loose, and reckless with The Constitution and ethics in general as Nixon or LBJ.

And there are NO amount of American flags Trump can hug and wrap himself in while paying lip-service to Liberty while his EVERY WORD AND DEED attacks the press, religion, all levels of law and the courts, and he daily threatens to “shut and shut down” any and ALL who dare expose his daily flood of lies and corruption.

We truly now have a the equivalent of a infant ape on PCP at the helm of America’s:

  1. Law Enforcement
  2. Courts
  3. Military and
  4. The Nuke Codes!!

What makes this festering, fetid pile of treason even worse is that Trump openly and always sides with PUTIN, XI, KIM JUNG UN, SAUDI PRINCES…any and ALL ENEMIES of America all while alienating, threatening, and lying to and lying about:

  1. OUR ALLIES, EVEN ISRAEL
  2. OUR INTEL COMMUNITY
  3. OUR MEDIA
  4. OUR COURTS

Notice a PATTERN here?

If it suits Trump- Good.

If it asks even the simplest, and most logical of questions- Bad.

How many times has Trump called any press that questions and investigates him “THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE”?

How many times has Trump said, even encouraged PHYSICAL VIOLENCE against The Media, Law makers, Ministers, and “Average Citizen” who question/disagree with him?

How many times in just a regular, even FRIENDLY interview (usually on FOX *snort*) has Trump flippantly and casually lied. Then lied about his lies while telling more lies, BRAG about lying…and then, when called on it, deny he ever lied?!!!

No. Trump is not the first to any of these things.

BUT Trump is the WORST AT DOING ALL THESE THINGS.

Let’s look at the cesspool that is directly mired to Trump or one of his “very best” shall we?

“Rarely in our history has this country had one of its major parties so completely in the grip not of fools but of opportunists, not of the vicious but the pathologically fearful, not of the misguided but the spineless,” argues

Honor and Dishonor

 

The full spectrum of Republican behavior has been on display this week. Michael Cohen (no relation, save in the most distant possible sense) ratted out his former boss Donald Trump in a spectacularly revealing piece of congressional testimony. Representative Matt Gaetz, the self-described “outspoken conservative firebrand” from Florida, threatened Cohen (by tweet, of course) with revelations of marital infidelity. When reminded that this could be construed as witness tampering, he pulled the tweet. The vast majority of House Republicans lined up to vote against a resolution rejecting President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency. And 13 Republicans, including Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin—like Gaetz, a second-term representative—voted in favor of it…

Cohen is not the most pathetic specimen of Republican. He was a little grifter hopelessly, shamelessly attempting to make something of himself by attaching his person to a really big grifter. His testimony is one long recitation of Trump’s scams, bigotry, payoffs, and lies. And possibly worse, of a dirty-tricks campaign in the 2016 election coordinated with a foreign power…

…Gaetz, a product of William & Mary Law School, is a fierce defender of all things military. His website touts his A+ rating from the National Rifle Association, of which he is a lifetime member. He voted to support the president, of course, and avows his determination to root out corruption in the Justice Department and the FBI, institutions that Republicans like him once supported…

…Gallagher might or might not have the same ardent love of guns that Gaetz has; he certainly does not have the same morbid suspicion of federal law-enforcement officers. But he actually carried a weapon in the service of his country, which so many of the summer soldiers and sunshine patriots of the GOP have inexplicably avoided. After graduating from Princeton, he joined the United States Marine Corps and served several tours in the dusty, dangerous Anbar province in Iraq before getting a doctorate at Georgetown University. He is one of the thoughtful voices on national defense in Congress, although he does not boast about it. He just does his job.

And then there is the gray mass of Republicans in the middle, the ones in the House who voted with the president in favor of declaring a national emergency, and the ones who will do so in the Senate. They are not as sleazy as Cohen, as pugnaciously nasty as Gaetz, or as principled as Gallagher. They are simpler souls: They are cowards.

Talk to them privately, and they will confess that there is no emergency at the southern border—there is a problem, to be sure, but one whose seriousness has actually diminished over time…

Donnie TrumPutin MUST GO: Archives

With all the “Breaking News” happening almost every 2-5 minutes I made an executive decision to make this a Clearinghouse article, a Viral News Dump as it were, to clear out my bookmarked articles on “Trump, Inc.”…so buckle up, this will be a MASSIVE compilation of articles and links to a “boat-load” of Headline News…

Image may contain: text

I start with this because it sets the stage for the entire Trump mindset going back to the 1980’s.

Trump is only, and barely, American by birth. Trump’s Numero Uno Loyalties are in this order:

  1. Trump
  2. Money
  3. Whoever helps and covers for Trump in his quest more $$$
  4. Hence, when American bankers quit loaning Trump $$$ Trump sold his soul to Russia, Putin, and the Russian mob.
  5. Which since the investigationS causes Trump to revert to HIS Prime Directive of being Loyal only to himself.

Trump has NEVER been Loyal to:

  1. America. Sells us out every chance he gets.
  2. The Constitution. He can’t even SPELL Constitution.
  3. Our Intel Community/Law Enforcement. Putin, Kim Jung Un, Stalin, Hitler, SATAN himself are more reliable in Trump’s view.
  4. Our Allies. Trump has insulted, isolated, betrayed, and trampled our Allies, all while kissing Russia’s, Iran’s, N. Korea’s, and China’s butt.

Going back to 1987…THIS:

The Hidden History of Trump’s First Trip to Moscow

In 1987, a young real estate developer traveled to the Soviet Union. The KGB almost certainly made the trip happen.

Luke Harding is a foreign correspondent at the Guardian. Excerpted from the book Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win published by Vintage Books, an imprint of The Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House LLC.

[EXCERPTS.]

It was 1984 and General Vladimir Alexandrovich Kryuchkov had a problem. The general occupied one of the KGB’s most exalted posts. He was head of the First Chief Directorate, the prestigious KGB arm responsible for gathering foreign intelligence.

Kryuchkov had begun his career with five years at the Soviet mission in Budapest under Ambassador Yuri Andropov. In 1967 Andropov became KGB chairman. Kryuchkov went to Moscow, took up a number of sensitive posts, and established a reputation as a devoted and hardworking officer. By 1984, Kryuchkov’s directorate in Moscow was bigger than ever before—12,000 officers, up from about 3,000 in the 1960s. His headquarters at Yasenevo, on the wooded southern outskirts of the city, was expanding: Workmen were busy constructing a 22-story annex and a new 11-story building.

In politics, change was in the air. Soon a new man would arrive in the Kremlin, Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbachev’s policy of detente with the West—a refreshing contrast to the global confrontation of previous general secretaries—meant the directorate’s work abroad was more important than ever.

Kryuchkov faced several challenges. First, a hawkish president, Ronald Reagan, was in power in Washington. The KGB regarded his two predecessors, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, as weak. By contrast Reagan was seen as a potent adversary. The directorate was increasingly preoccupied with what it believed—wrongly—was an American plot to conduct a preemptive nuclear strike against the USSR.

It was around this time that Donald Trump appears to have attracted the attention of Soviet intelligence. How that happened, and where that relationship began, is an answer hidden somewhere in the KGB’s secret archives. Assuming, that is, that the documents still exist.

Trump’s first visit to Soviet Moscow in 1987 looks, with hindsight, to be part of a pattern. The dossier by the former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele asserts that the Kremlin had been cultivating Trump for “at least five years” before his stunning victory in the 2016 US presidential election. This would take us back to around 2011 or 2012.

In fact, the Soviet Union was interested in him too, three decades earlier. The top level of the Soviet diplomatic service arranged his 1987 Moscow visit. With assistance from the KGB. It took place while Kryuchkov was seeking to improve the KGB’s operational techniques in one particular and sensitive area. The spy chief wanted KGB staff abroad to recruit more Americans…

AND FOR THE VERY LAST…

PERVERSION of JUSTICE

A decade before #MeToo, a multimillionaire sex offender from Florida got the ultimate break.

He was over 50.

They were little girls.

Their stories were almost identical.

The evidence was substantial.

Jeffrey Epstein had a little black book filled with the names and personal phone numbers of some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people, from Bill Clinton and Donald Trump to actors, actresses, scientists and business tycoons.

A money manager for the super-rich, Epstein had two private jets, the largest single residence in Manhattan, an island in the Caribbean, a ranch in New Mexico and a waterfront estate in Florida.

But Epstein also had an obsession.

For years, Epstein lured an endless stream of teenage girls to his Palm Beach mansion, offering to pay them for massages. Instead, police say, for years he coerced middle and high school girls into engaging in sex acts with him and others.

As evidence emerged that there were victims and witnesses outside of Palm Beach, the FBI began an investigation in 2006 into whether Epstein and others employed by him were involved in underage sex trafficking.

But in 2007, despite substantial evidence that corroborated the girls’ stories of abuse by Epstein, the U.S. attorney in Miami, Alexander Acosta, signed off on a secret deal for the multimillionaire, one that ensured he would never spend a day in prison.

Acosta, now President Donald Trump’s secretary of labor, agreed to seal the agreement so that no one — not even Epstein’s victims — would know the full extent of his crimes or who was involved.

This is the story of that deal — and how his victims, more than a decade later, are still fighting a criminal justice system that has stubbornly failed to hold wealthy, powerful men accountable for sexual abuse…

It’s True: Trump Is Lying More, and He’s Doing It on Purpose

SOURCE .

On Thursday, the Washington Post published a remarkable story on its front page revealing a recent spike in the number of “false and misleading claims” made by President Trump. In his first year as President, Trump made 2,140 false claims, according to the Post. In just the last six months, he has nearly doubled that total to 4,229. In June and July, he averaged sixteen false claims a day. On July 5th, the Post found what appears to be Trump’s most untruthful day yet: seventy-six per cent of the ninety-eight factual assertions he made in a campaign-style rally in Great Falls, Montana, were “false, misleading or unsupported by evidence.” Trump’s rallies have become the signature events of his Presidency, and it is there that the President most often plays fast and loose with the facts, in service to his political priorities and to telling his fervent supporters what they want and expect to hear from him. At another rally this week, in Tampa, Trump made thirty-five false and misleading claims, on subjects ranging from trade with China to the size of his tax cut.

The 25 Worst Lies From Donald Trump’s First 200 Days

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

The reason I established that Trump is a “Liar’s Liar” is because we will now look at some serious claims he made, and some serious charges against him, and with the FACT firmly entrenched that Trump IS a liar, it should dissuade ALL but the most rabid Trumpster from believing ANYTHING Trump says as a rebuttal.

FIRST UP…

The utter collapse of Donald Trump’s ‘best people’ boast

The first was a series of interviews by Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former aide to the President, in which she alleged — among other things — that she had been offered money to stay silent after leaving the White House. Manigault Newman also claimed that she secretly tapedWhite House chief of staff John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room. And on Monday morning, she released an audio recording to NBC’s “Today” of an apparent phone conversation with Trump that suggested he was unaware of her firing before it happened.
The second came when Trump — amid a now-regular Twitter tirade regarding the special counsel probe — derided Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “scared stiff and Missing in Action.” (And, yes, that capitalization is in the original tweet.)
The twin episodes highlight the “why” behind the massive staff volatility in Trump’s White House: He relies almost totally on his gut in the hiring process, he plays aides against each other for sport, he runs incredibly hot and cold on staff, and he is more than willing to publicly embarrass or shame those who work for him.

‘He’s doing the enemy’s job for them’: Current and former officials compare Trump to a toddler and say his attacks on the intel community create a goldmine for foreign governments

donald trump
  • President Donald Trump’s most recent public campaign against the US intelligence community has stunned current and former intelligence officials.
  • “He’s doing the enemy’s job for them,” one FBI agent told INSIDER.
  • Another agent compared Trump’s unwillingness to accept intelligence assessments that contradict his beliefs to the behavior of a toddler.
  • “It’s like when my son threw temper tantrums when I told him he couldn’t do something or if I said something he didn’t like. Of course, my son was three years old at the time and wasn’t sitting in the Oval Office with the nuclear button,” the second agent told INSIDER.
  • As a result of Trump’s actions, intelligence officers are “more vulnerable to approaches by foreign intelligence services — and more vulnerable to accepting those approaches — than any other time in US history,” Glenn Carle, a former CIA covert operative, told INSIDER.
  • “For decades, the Soviet Union and, more recently, Russia, have denigrated the CIA and our intelligence professionals, attempting to delegitimize US intelligence in the process,” another intelligence veteran, Ned Price, said. “Now our adversaries have a helper who sits in the Oval Office.”

President Donald Trump’s public insults against his top intelligence chiefs and apparent unwillingness to accept assessments that contradict his own beliefs pose a dire threat to US national security and create a goldmine for foreign intelligence services to exploit, current and former intelligence officials told INSIDER.

Trump’s latest attacks came after US intelligence leaders, including FBI director Chris Wray, CIA director Gina Haspel, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee at an annual hearing on Tuesday regarding the top global security threats facing the country.

Trump grew enraged when, among other things, the officials testified that while Iran is still a global threat, it is complying with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), an international deal the Obama administration spearheaded that’s designed to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

The assertion directly contradicted the president’s claims that Iran is violating the deal and poses an imminent nuclear threat to the US. The officials also offered intelligence assessments on other hot-button issues, like the Islamic State and North Korea, that went against Trump’s foreign policy claims.

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

Ok. Two things from this double-whammy of Trump “Stupevilty” (DT’s Stupidity is matched, maybe exceeded, by his inherent evilness, hence my coining of the (new) word Stupevilty).

  1. Trump is too vain, stupid, and corrupt to ACTUALLY have the “best, most extremely vetted” people at his beck and call. The BEST do not like be associated with the stupid, evil, and lie-long failures.
  2. And, still, even with 3rd and 4th stringers as his “Best” even they know quite well that Trump is a pant load!

FACT: Undocumented immigrants commit crimes at a considerably lower rate than Donald Trump’s campaign staff.

How Putin’s oligarchs funneled millions into GOP campaigns

As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team probes deeper into potential collusion between Trump officials and representatives of the Russian government, investigators are taking a closer look at political contributions made by U.S. citizens with close ties to Russia.

Buried in the campaign finance reports available to the public are some troubling connections between a group of wealthy donors with ties to Russia and their political contributions to President Donald Trump and a number of top Republican leaders. And thanks to changes in campaign finance laws, the political contributions are legal. We have allowed our campaign finance laws to become a strategic threat to our country.

An example is Len Blavatnik, a dual U.S.-U.K. citizen and one of the largest donors to GOP political action committees in the 2015-16 election cycle. Blavatnik’s family emigrated to the U.S. in the late ’70s from the U.S.S.R. and he returned to Russia when the Soviet Union began to collapse in the late ’80s.

Data from the Federal Election Commission show that Blavatnik’s campaign contributions dating back to 2009-10 were fairly balanced across party lines and relatively modest for a billionaire. During that season he contributed $53,400. His contributions increased to $135,552 in 2011-12 and to $273,600 in 2013-14, still bipartisan.

In 2015-16, everything changed. Blavatnik’s political contributions soared and made a hard right turn as he pumped $6.35 million into GOP political action committees, with millions of dollars going to top Republican leaders including Sens. Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham.

In 2017, donations continued, with $41,000 going to both Republican and Democrat candidates, along with $1 million to McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund.

So is this legal?

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking Democratic leader on the House Intelligence Committee, told ABC News in September: “Unless the contributions were directed by a foreigner, they would be legal, but could still be of interest to investigators examining allegations of Russian influence on the 2016 campaign. Obviously, if there were those that had associations with the Kremlin that were contributing, that would be of keen concern.”

Under federal law, foreigner nationals are barred from contributing directly or indirectly to political campaigns in local, state and federal elections.

Should Blavatnik’s contributions concern Mueller’s team of investigators? Take a look at his long-time business associates in Russia…

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

Hmmmm. Seems we have almost every person associated with Trump also associated with Putin and RUSSIAN Oligarchs…

I’m sure it’s all innocent talk about, oh, say, ADOPTION….

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

Now for some commentary from some Twitter Patriots:

FIRST:

“If I hear one more Evangelical claim that God chose Donald Trump, I’m swear I’m gonna rapture myself. Christian Trumpers really need to stop spiritualizing the man, his campaign, and his Presidency. It’s sinful. It’s blasphemous. It’s lousy evangelism. It’s also just plain asinine. In fact, in the most dizzying display of theological spin doctoring, it is now precisely his ever-growing trail of personal toxic discharge that supposedly proves evidence of God’s hand in it all. So Trump’s multiple marriages, his porn star affairs, his mountain of sexual assault claims, his verbal obscenities, his disregard for rule of law, his compulsive lying, his unrelenting attacks on marginalized communities (things these Christians would have figuratively and almost literally crucified Obama for) are now unmistakable signs that God is using this President. This is nonsense of Biblical proportions; to try and draw some line between Jesus of Nazareth and Don of New York, is about as farcical as you can get without actually spontaneously combusting from the cognitive dissonance. Dying to justify their own allegiances to Trump, Evangelicals have lumped him in with other famously flawed heroes of Scripture, suggesting he is actually God’s anointed, imperfect tool of salvation—in the tradition of the Old Testament.(Well, God did apparently use the jawbone of an ass, so I guess there is precedent) In all seriousness, this sanctified retrofitting of this godless President to any kind of Providential momentum is the height of absurdity. By that measurement, let’s find all the most reprehensible human beings we can, give them carte blanche in our seats of power—and see just what God can do! No, Donald Trump wasn’t anointed by God. He isn’t an instrument of Divine will. He isn’t Biblically hastening Armageddon or Jesus’ return. That’s it. No Providence. No Divine messages. No Biblical prophecies. No spiritual movements. Just ordinary human beings who chose really, really poorly when they should have known better. Stop namedropping God. God didn’t vote for the guy who said he could grab women by the genitalia. God didn’t choose the guy who said protestors should be beaten. God didn’t go with the guy endorsed by the KKK. God didn’t excuse the bankruptcies and overlook the affairs. I’m pretty sure people did that—lots of supposedly Christian folks. We really should stop pretending God is responsible for this fast food dumpster fire, when it’s clear whose hand is in it all. God does not consent. Pray on that.” H/T -John Pavlovitz

=====================
Bill Blood – “You would have to be a complete moron to believe that those around Trump are getting arrested because of partisanship politics. No, this isn’t Mueller’s first rodeo. When comes time to issue arrest warrants you can be sure he has all of his ducks in a row. You would also have to be a complete moron to believe that all of these people connected to Trump are going down for criminal acts and Trump is the only clean one out of the bunch. The “Deplorables” could care less if Trump or anyone connected to him are actually guilty though. Nope. That is beside the point to them. They will lie, make up ridiculous excuses and attack those that dare to expose the truth about Trump and his minions. Protecting their “savior” of America that is “saving us from the wicked Demorats” is what they care about. It’s us against them and the means justifies the end in their minds. Think about the irony of those last statements. Protecting a lying, cheating, corrupt, immoral, filthy mouthed, vengeful, slanderous, rash, vain, narcissistic, greedy, abusive swamp creature is making this land of the free and the home of the brave great again? I submit that just the opposite is true. He’s set the bar in the mud for the office of the presidency and made us the laughing stock of the world. This isn’t the conservative party that I used to know. No, there is no conservative party left in America. It’s liberals and Trumpism. Millions of us are left somewhere in the middle but we certainly are not being represented in America. I can only pray that the truth comes out and justice is served. We are so overdue for some justice.”
========================
My Two Cents by Jim Russell Let’s discuss Evraz. Evraz??? What’s That?? Well let me entertain you. Evraz is the world’s fourth largest producer of steel. It is also a Russian State Owned Company, whose major interest holder is Roman Abramovich. Mr. Abramovich is a Russian Oligarch with extremely close ties to President Putin, (bet you thought I was going to say President Trump, well sorry to disappoint, but that part is coming later). Evraz is most likely a term unknown to the “Cult” for if the words, Pelosi, Clinton emails, or caravan are not in the headline, then they are simply NOT Interested in the subject. But here I offer to the Concerned and Curious Citizens Organization, My Two Cents: I first came across the Evraz Corp, in March of 2017. I was curious as to why President Trump, rescinded the “Made in America” caveat to his Jan, 24, 2017 executive order to proceed with the Keystone XL pipeline. He had Declared to his base, the pipeline will be Completely constructed with American Made STEEL!!! And the Crowd All Cheered! Yet in March he, very quietly, removed that portion of his order. I wanted to know WHY? Upon researching the subject, it turned out the Trans-Canada Pipeline Co. had lobbied the White House to allow the use of the pipe already laying on the ground in North Dakota. This pipe had been manufactured in Canada by Evraz then shipped to various locations along the projected route long before President Obama shutdown the project. Trans-Canada pleadings were that they had already paid for the manufacture and transportation of the pipe and could not reasonably be expected to replace it. In addition Trans-Canada proved that waiting for new U.S. Steel manufactured pipe would add costly time to the start date, thereby delaying the new jobs President Trump had proclaimed. And the added cost would eventually be placed upon the American consumer. The Result was the quiet, almost secret, exclusion of the “Made in America” caveat. Now the Crowd remained silent? Why, no mention of Clinton’s emails I assume. But the Bottom line is….this Russian State owned company made money, good ol’ American greenbacks, and Putin’s pockets got lined. Thank you Donald. Now let’s visit memory lane……child at one of the rallies in 2015: “Mr. President, What will the Wall be made of?” Trump: “That may be the best question I get today…..I’ll tell you what it’s going to be made of, hardened Concrete….” However, in December of 2018 it seems the Democrats swayed him for President Trump tweeted the following: “The Democrats, are saying loud and clear that they do not want to build a concrete wall – but we are not building a concrete wall, we are building artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see through it…” But what happened in-between these two very different statements? Tariffs On Imported Steel! Trump placed Tariffs on foreign made steel. This move affected China the most for it is the world’s largest exporter of steel, but with the same stroke of the pen Russian imported steel was exempted from these new regulations…mmm….??? Tariffs are in fact a “consumption tax”. The consumer pays an exorbitant price when purchasing tariff loaded goods. The object of tariffs is to herd the consuming public away from one source of goods and service to another “preferred” supplier. In this case our President proclaimed American Steel was to be the preferred source. HooRay!…and the crowd cheered. And here’s the “But”…But what the Donald didn’t reveal was the preferred source of American steel used to build our “big, beautiful”, now steel fence, instead of concrete wall, (thanks to the Democrats?), would be….you got it….EVRAZ! The Russian state owned, and Roman Abramovich controlled, steel manufacturer which owns three steel companies in the good ole USA! They have facilities in Oregon, Colorado and Illinois. And to all our surprise EVRAZ happens to be the only U.S. Steel manufacturer capable of manufacturing Mr. Trump’s “big, beautiful steel slats” while lining Putin’s pockets. . Why is it when one shakes any tree in the Trump forest another Russian falls out? So the question arises, the President is warning of a clear and present danger coming from the South, but is this the deflection away from the not so clear and future funding of his friends? And just what will he receive in return besides a “big, beautiful fence”? Perhaps there is a Russian ladder supply company awaiting completion of the steel slat fence.
=================================

LASTLY, MORE BROKEN PROMISES, AKA LIES FROM DT:

– obamacare – not repealed and Trump fought the freedom caucus to keep it intact, but settled for the mandate being removed that fines men or women that don’t want to buy it. – planned parenthood – still fully funded. – sanctuary cities – still fully funded. – the wall that Mexico was going to pay for, only being repaired in areas where a wall already exists. – act presidential, whoops, he failed there. – create a fair tax – nope, the richer got richer and the poor got the shaft – support Israel – Nope, Trump, after saying they could build on the west bank now tells Israel to stop building, so he can give it to Palestine, with the western half of Jerusalem being Palestine’s capital. – declaring Jerusalem Israel’s capital – whoops, Trump is 34 years late on that one and Reagan declared that in 1984. – a veterans hotline and the VA streamlined and improved – whoops, Trump didn’t do that one either. – He would lock up Hillary – nope, Trump said ‘Leave her alone, she has suffered enough. – abolish common core – nope, DeVoes was left in charge and common core remains. – Trump wouldn’t touch the 2nd amendment. That was a lie when he banned bump stocks. – conservative judges for the supreme court. Whoops, failed again, since Gorsuch votes with liberals and it was Gorsuch that gave the nation the internet tax and violent offenders remain in the nation, since they can’t be deported any longer. Kavanaugh, the man that hates the constitution and it was Kavanaugh that told Roberts how to legalize obamacare as a tax in 2010. Kavanaugh helped create the Patriot act which is illegal since it attacks the 4th amendment. – Trump would sanction nations that attack other nations. Whoops, he is still trying to lift sanctions against Russia that own him. – Trump would eliminate the national debt in eight years. Whoops, and he has added two trillion, also having the first trillion dollar deficit in history. Add to that and he received an unlimited debt ceiling from Pelosi and schumer. – Trump vowed to lower prices for everyone. Whoops, he goofed there and his tariffs led to inflation across the board, since the tariffs are paid by the citizens, NOT the nations exporting to the US. – Trump would abolish TPP and NAFTA. Whoops, the new USMCA treaty is a combination of both with little language differences. He had combined them into one treaty to disguise his incompetence. – Trump would end the Iran deal – Whoops, yes, he pulled out of the agreement, but Britain, France, and other nations kept it in place, which merely removed the United States from the negotiation’s table, making them silent on world affairs. – Trump promised that he would only use executive orders as a last resort and at last count – he had signed more in two years than eight years of Obama….
…all those were promises Trump made that he DIDN’T keep, which makes me ask what are the promises Trump DID keep. lol.;
====================================

I will conclude by asking ONE very important question:

Does Trump really think he can lie his way out of going to prison??

Impeach Donald Trump

SOURCE .

Starting the process will rein in a president who is undermining American ideals—and bring the debate about his fitness for office into Congress, where it belongs.

On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump stood on the steps of the Capitol, raised his right hand, and solemnly swore to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States and, to the best of his ability, to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. He has not kept that promise.

Instead, he has mounted a concerted challenge to the separation of powers, to the rule of law, and to the civil liberties enshrined in our founding documents. He has purposefully inflamed America’s divisions. He has set himself against the American idea, the principle that all of us—of every race, gender, and creed—are created equal.

This is not a partisan judgment. Many of the president’s fiercest critics have emerged from within his own party. Even officials and observers who support his policies are appalled by his pronouncements, and those who have the most firsthand experience of governance are also the most alarmed by how Trump is governing.

Russia has a new array of nuclear-capable weapons including an intercontinental ballistic missile that renders defense systems “useless,” President Vladimir Putin announced Thursday.

The ICBM has a longer range than any other and can reach almost any target in the world, Putin said in his annual address to lawmakers and political elites.

Other new technologies he highlighted included supersonic missiles and drone submarines that he said cannot be stopped.

Putin’s marathon speech came 17 days before a presidential election in which he is seeking an unprecedented fourth term in power. It was accompanied by video footage showing some of the new weaponry in action as well as simulations on a giant screen…

A new book by Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff and Mother Jones’ David Corn being published today says that Donald Trump “personally encouraged” George Papadopoulos to arrange a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.1

If true, this stunning revelation contradicts the public views of what happened at an important meeting with Trump and his foreign policy team on March 31, 2016.

Papadopoulos — who Trump called a “coffee boy” — was actually a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. After pleading guilty to lying to the FBI he has become a key cooperating witness in special counsekl Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

WHAT IS TRUTH??

EXTERNAL PROOFS OF THE BIBLE’S VERACITY.

The Historian and the Bible

Why trust the Bible? Well, first, many people are not aware that most historians take the Bible, especially the New Testament, very seriously indeed. The Bible has been subjected to extremely vigorous literary and historical criticism, probably more than any other ancient work, and it’s emerged unscathed. Hans Kung put it nicely:

Lay people are usually unaware that the scrupulous scholarly work achieved by modern biblical criticism … represented by scrupulous academic work over about 300 years, belongs among the greatest intellectual achievements of the human race. Has any of the great world religions outside of the Jewish-Christian tradition investigated its own foundations and its own history so thoroughly and impartially? None of them has remotely approached this. The Bible is far and away the most studied book in world literature.

In other words, the Bible doesn’t need defending or protecting from historical criticism — Christians haven’t shut themselves off from academic questions — far from it. Indeed, as the 19th century Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon once quipped: “Defend the Bible? I’d sooner defend a lion!”

When one approaches the Bible from a historical perspective, one can approach it much as one would any other ancient work. Broadly speaking, there are three tests a historian can utilise to determine the veracity of an ancient document. The bibliographic test, the internal test, and the external test. Let’s briefly look at each of these and how they apply to the Bible.

The Bibliographic Test

The bibliographic test looks at the ancient manuscripts of the Bible and asks whether the text of the Bible we have today is the same as the original? The simple answer is “yes”. There are thousands upon thousands of ancient manuscripts of the Bible, dating from the early second century down to the middle ages. When you compare what we have for the Bible with, say, what we have in terms of manuscripts for other important works of antiquity — Plato or Thucydides — it’s striking. For the Bible, we have 5,000 Greek manuscripts, hundreds of papyri, almost 350 Syriac copies (most dating to the 400s). On top of this, virtually the entire New Testament could be reproduced from quotations in the early church fathers; 32,000 such quotations exist before the Council of Nicaea in AD325, for example.

Many of these manuscripts are staggeringly early. For example, the John Rylands fragment (P52) dates to around AD120. Codex Sinaiticus dates to about 350AD and contains virtually all of the New Testament — I remember visiting the British Library a few years ago and staring at this beautiful object, just a few centimetres away from me behind a pane of glass. One felt that one was in touch with history.

Why are these manuscripts important? Because they enable us to be confident that the text of the Bible we have today is extremely accurate and close to the original. Historian and textual critic Ben Witherington has remarked that critical scholarship is about 99% certain of all of the New Testament text now — indeed, that we’re closer to the original text of the New Testament now than anytime since the first couple of centuries, so good is the scholarship.

The Internal Test

What about the historian’s second test, the internal test? This test asks whether we can determine whether the document we have before us was written by eyewitnesses. When it comes to the Bible, especially to the New Testament, things get very interesting.

First, we have multiple witnesses. Many people who are unfamiliar with the Bible tend to think of it as one book — but, of course, the Bible contains multiple books — it’s more like a library than a book. So, when we come to the New Testament, for example, we have multiple authors writing about the life of Jesus. Critical scholars would count at least six — Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul and probably also “Q”, a collection of sayings of Jesus that Matthew and Luke referred to.

Furthermore, these sources are all very early. Most scholars date the Gospels to the 60s, 70s and 80s AD, although some argue that Mark, especially, is much earlier. British New Testament scholar James Crossley — who, I’d note, is not a Christian — believes Mark was written in the late 30s or early 40sthat’s within a decade of Jesus. Another very early witness is Paul, who is writing his letters between AD48 and AD65, well within the lifetimes of the eyewitnesses. Why is this important?

Because one thing historians get very excited about is multiple attestation and early dating.
To return to the Gospels, though, for a moment. Not merely are they very early, but it’s now fairly universally accepted in critical scholarship that the Gospel writers were trying to write history; in terms of genre, the Gospels are biographies. The seminal work that demonstrated this was a book called What Are the Gospels? by Richard Burridge. Interestingly, Burridge set out to disprove that the gospels are biographies but the evidence caused him to change his mind. Historian David Aune sums up the implications of this:

[Bios, ancient biography] was firmly rooted in historical fact rather than literary fiction. Thus while the Evangelists clearly had an important theological agenda, the very fact that they chose to adapt Greco-Roman biographical conventions to tell the story of Jesus indicated that they were centrally concerned to communicate what they really thought happened.”

There’s a further point here, too. If one wants to reject the Gospels as history, then one is still left with the problem of explaining the early church. It had to come from somewhere and if Jesus’ life and career didn’t play out as the Gospels claim, one has to explain where. As German historian Martin Dibelius put it: you have to posit an X big enough to explain the Y of the early church. The best explanation remains that given in the Gospels: that Jesus existed and something very remarkable happened to him.

The External Test

Finally, there’s the external evidence for the Bible, in particular archaeology. Time and time again, archaeology has confirmed that the writers of the biblical texts knew what they were talking about. Along with the writings of non-Christian historians from the first century, men like the Jewish historian, Josephus, archaeology endorses the biblical text at many points. As Millar Burrows, former professor of archaeology at Yale wrote:

On the whole … archaeological work has unquestionably strengthened confidence in the reliability of the Scriptural record. More than one archaeologist has found his respect for the Bible increased by the experience of excavation in Palestine. Archaeology has in many cases refuted the views of modern critics.

Let me give you a few fascinating examples. First, two examples from Luke. In Acts 17:6-8, Luke uses the Greek word politarchs to describe the city officials in Thessalonica. That word doesn’t appear in classical Greek literature so for many years, critics accused Luke of making a mistake. Then archaeologists discovered a first-century arch in the town that used this very term — showing that the term was in use for government officials at the very time Luke was writing. It was a similar phenomena with Acts 18:12, where Luke uses the term “proconsul” to describe a gentleman called Gallio. That word didn’t appear either in classical literature so, again, scholars questioned Luke’s accuracy. Then an inscription was found at Delphi, dating to AD51, using the same term — and amazingly, to describe the very same official, Gallio. Once again Luke was proven to be a very accurate historian.

It’s a similar story with the other Gospel writers. For example, in John 5:1-2, the fourth Gospel writer speaks of “a pool in Jerusalem, by the Sheep Gate, called in Hebrew ‘Bethesda’, which has five porticoes”. Until the 20th century, there was no evidence outside of John’s Gospel for such a place and, again, critics questioned John’s reliability. Then in the 1930s, the pool was uncovered by archaeologists — complete with four colonnades around the edges and one across the middle.

One more example will suffice and it’s perhaps the most intriguing — the so-called “James Ossuary”. According to the Gospels — and to the Jewish historian, Josephus, James was the brother of Jesus and was killed in AD62. In 2002, a mid-first century bone box or ossuary was discovered in Jerusalem, bearing the Aramaic inscription “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus”. There is very strong evidence that the box and its inscription are authentic. Ed Keall, of the Royal Ontario Museum here in Toronto, has said “we stand by our opinion that the James Ossuary is not a forgery”. As New Testament historian Ben Witherington put it:

If, as seems probable, the ossuary found in the vicinity of Jerusalem and dated to about AD 63 is indeed the burial box of James, the brother of Jesus, this inscription is the most important extra-biblical evidence of its kind.

If we had more time, numerous other examples could be listed. The key point is this: archaeology doesn’t prove the New Testament is true. But what it does do is endorse the narratives. It shows that the biblical writings are historical and geographical in character — and thus deserve to be weighed and treated as seriously as an other texts from antiquity.

Conclusions
In the short time available to us, we’ve only been able to scratch the surface of what is a fascinating and rich area of study. But I hope in this brief survey I’ve been able to show that there are very good reasons to trust the Bible. And thus very good reasons to approach it with an open mind, willing to take what it says seriously and weigh its claims seriously.

So why read the Bible? Because from a historian’s perspective, we have good reason to trust it. Why read the Bible? Because only by reading it can you draw your own conclusions, rather than uncritically swallow somebody else’s second-hand-scepticism. Why read the Bible? Because through the pages of the four biographies in the New Testament, the gospels, one encounters a historical figure — Jesus of Nazareth — whose powerful personality continues to resonate and impact lives two thousand years on.

FOR FURTHER READING:

An Investigation: Is Jesus Liar, Lunatic, or Lord?

Per the great Christian apologist C. S. Lewis, “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else He would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

C.S. Lewis popularized this “Trilemma” argument, though it has earlier roots in the writings of Scottish Christian preacher “Rabbi” John Duncan, and Watchman Nee in his 1936 book, Normal Christian Faith. The 3-legged stool of this argument quickly gets to the heart of the matter: will we accept Jesus — or not?

Was Jesus a liar, lunatic — or Lord? Let’s look at each option.


~ Was Jesus a Liar? ~

If Jesus knew He was not God, then He was lying. But if he was a liar, then He also was a hypocrite, as He told others to be honest, whatever the cost. If that’s the case, then we can say that would make Jesus unspeakably evil, as He deliberately told others to forsake their religious beliefs and trust Him for their eternal destiny. Jewish religious leaders actually did charge Jesus with having a demon (John 8:48), which Scripture decidedly refutes. And if Jesus knew He was lying, then He was a fool, as His claims led to His crucifixion.

But would a liar teach his followers, as Jesus did throughout the Gospels, to adhere to a profoundly moral code? Could such a massive deceiver teach unselfish, ethical truths and live the morally exemplary life that Jesus did? The very notion is ridiculous.

John Stuart Mill, a philosopher, skeptic, and antagonist of Christianity, still admitted that Jesus was a first-rate ethicist supremely worthy of our attention and emulation:

“But about the life and sayings of Jesus there is a stamp of personal originality combined with profundity of insight….in the very first rank of men of sublime genius of whom our species can boast. When this pre-eminent genius is combined with the qualities of probably the greatest moral reformer, and martyr to that mission, who ever existed upon earth, religion cannot be said to have made a bad choice in pitching on this man as the ideal representative and guide of humanity; nor, even now, would it be easy, even for an unbeliever, to find a better translation of the rule of virtue from the abstract into the concrete, than to endeavor so to live that Christ would approve our life.”

To put that succinctly, Mills is saying that Jesus was a perfect example of all that He taught.

Let’s also consider this equally long statement by William Lecky, a noted Irish historian and dedicated opponent of organized Christianity, because it’s just so darn good:

“It was reserved for Christianity to present to the world an ideal character, which through all the changes of eighteen centuries has inspired the hearts of men with an impassioned love; has shown itself capable of acting on all ages, nations, temperaments, and conditions; has been not only the highest pattern of virtue but the strongest incentive to its practice; and has exercised so deep an influence that it may be truly said that the simple record of [Jesus’] three short years of active life has done more to regenerate and to soften mankind than all the disquisitions of philosophers, and all other exhortations of moralists.”

As church historian Philip Schaff adds, Jesus was a “character so original, so complete, so uniformly consistent, so perfect, so human and yet so high above all human greatness” who could be neither fraud nor fiction. Schaff adds that Jesus “never lost the even balance of His mind,” but “sailed serenely over all the troubles and persecutions, as the sun above the clouds, who always returned the wisest answer to tempting questions, who calmly and deliberately predicted His death on the cross.” I personally haven’t met any other human who lived up to Jesus’ behavior…have you?

In his book Cold-Case Christianity, cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace lists these three decisive motives at the heart of any misbehavior: financial greed, sexual or relational desire, or power.

Jesus wasn’t interested in any of them. The New Testament writers tell us that He taught His disciples to give to the needy, and to not store up earthly treasures. And no evidence exists that Jesus was motivated by lust or relationships. The Gospels stress the respect that Jesus displayed toward women, including those who followed and supported His ministry. And rather than gain power for Himself, Jesus modeled serving others and giving without expectation of return, even to the wicked and ungrateful. He taught His disciples to do the same. If Jesus had been interested in personal power, He would have stepped into the political role people expected of Him. Instead, He shunned it.

~ Was Jesus a Lunatic? ~

So if Jesus wasn’t a liar, is it feasible that He mistakenly thought He was God? After all, one might be both sincere — but also sincerely wrong. Christian philosopher Peter Kreeft deftly shows why we must reject the option of Jesus being a lunatic:

“A measure of your insanity is the size of the gap between what you think you are and what you really are. If I think I am the greatest philosopher in America, I am only an arrogant fool; if I think I am Napoleon, I am probably over the edge; if I think I am a butterfly, I am fully embarked from the sunny shores of sanity. But if I think I am God, I am even more insane because the gap between anything finite and the infinite God is even greater than the gap between any two finite things, even a man and a butterfly. Well, then, why not liar or lunatic? But almost no one who has read the Gospels can honestly and seriously consider that option. The savviness, the canniness, the human wisdom, the attractiveness of Jesus emerge from the Gospels with an unavoidable force to any but the most hardened and prejudiced reader.”

He adds:

“Jesus has in abundance precisely those three qualities which liars and lunatics most conspicuously lack: (1) His practical wisdom, His ability to read human hearts …. (2) His deep and winning love, His passionate compassion, His ability to attract people and make them feel at home and forgiven, His authority; and above all (3) His ability to astonish, His unpredictability, His creativity. Liars and lunatics are all so dull and predictable! No one who knows the Gospels and human beings can seriously entertain the possibility that Jesus was a liar or a lunatic, a bad man.”

The idea that Jesus was self-deceived or delusional is simply not compatible with the impression He has left on history. So viewing Jesus as a lunatic is our second ridiculous option.

~ Is Jesus Lord? ~

In the first century, when people were given a number of answers about Jesus’ identity, Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am?”Peter responded, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:15-16). Like Peter, we can decide to believe that Jesus made truthful claims about being God — and then accept or reject Him as our personal Savior.

Yes, Jesus was put to death by the Romans. But was that the end of the movement that He launched three years earlier? We have to shout a resounding “No!”, if the millions who call Him “Lord” are to be counted. Jesus stands head-and-shoulders above all other self-proclaimed “saviors,” because He is clearly at work among His people. His presence is palpable, when His people draw near. He is still answering our prayers (even when the answer is no!), and guiding us.

God’s Word tells us that we each must choose for ourselves whether or not to believe that Jesus is Lord. Can the Bible prove that Jesus is God? No. But we can take heart that archeological discoveries continue to prove its legitimacy as a truthful document. The Bible does clearly show us that Jesus, as a proven historical figure, was amazing in the way He demonstrated love. He gave all credit to God the Father, with whom He said He was equal. As the apostle John wrote in the New Testament, “these are written that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).

So we are left with two ridiculous options — and one that must be given weight as entirely possible. Historians disagree with this, of course, saying that faith can’t be used as a measure of proving truth. Really? Sometimes I feel very sad for people who refuse to consider options, simply because they can’t see or feel them for themselves. Faith, it seems to me, identifies the real risk takers among us. And definitely the wisest. 😉

We cannot put Jesus on the shelf as a great moral teacher; evidence strongly favors Jesus being so much more.

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

C. S. Lewis, “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else He would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

EXTERNAL PROOFS FOR THE VERACITY OF GOD’S WORD, THE BIBLE

We’ve already read what three of the greatest mind and apologists have said, let’s now conclude with this:

EVERY PERSON MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE HAS BEEN CONFIRMED VIA HISTORY AND ARCHEOLOGY.

EVERY PLACE MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE HAS BEEN FOUND, WE EVEN KNOW THE GENERAL LOCATION FOR THE GARDEN OF EDEN, WHICH IS SAID TO BE BETWEEN THE TIGRIS AND EUPHRATES RIVERS.

EVERY EVENT THAT THE BIBLE MENTIONS HAS BEEN DUG UP AND PROVEN BY ARCHEOLOGISTS.  SODOM AND GOMORRAH? PILLARS OF SALT, SULFUR, AND BRIMSTONE ARE FOUND WHERE THE BIBLE SAYS THEY ONCE WERE. MOSES CROSSING THE RED SEA WITH PHARAOH CHASING? EGYPTIAN CHARIOTS, ARMOR, AND WEAPONS HAVE BEEN FOUND WHERE THE BIBLE SAYS MOSES CROSSED THE RED SEA…IN THE RED SEA.

NOAH’S ARK FOUND. OTHER SOURCES. SOURCE.

WENT TO GREAT LENGTHS TO ESTABLISH THE TRUTH AND VERACITY OF THE BIBLE, GOD’S WORD, BECAUSE TO SPEAK ABOUT TRUTH WITH CERTAINTY AND AUTHORITY AMONGST SKEPTICS WE NEED TO PROVIDE AN ADEQUATE DEFENSE OF OUR FAITH.
