Donald J Trump Speaks: (written by Z, of course!)

Dear Americans,

Thanks for letting me into your living rooms tonight.   I thought it was about time I speak to you about what is going on in my administration and in this country.  I’m glad for this opportunity.

You know me as someone who can be blunt so I’m going to start out that way:  The first thing I want to say is I’m very tired of hearing people treat this great country as if it’s the worst country on the planet.  One historical hero had a slave, so he’s no good anymore?  Historical statues are now bad and have to be replaced by country western singers?   A country which doesn’t know its history is doomed to repeat it.   America grew and changed for the better each time we put behind us a dark part of our history like slavery or restrictions on women!  We’d gotten OVER IT! Why are we back at it?  Ask yourselves why there’s practically an industry now of ignoring that great progress we’d made!  Please stop the hate toward our history because it reflects very frighteningly on our future.

Americans are GOOD PEOPLE.  The huge majority of us does NOT HATE.  Wishing to allow only legal immigrants in our country does not mean we hate the rest.  Wishing to respect homosexuals while we safeguard long-successful institutions like marriage does not mean we hate homosexuals.  Respecting and honoring the Judeo-Christian founding of our country does not mean we hate other religions.   We don’t hate, but we want to keep ourselves and our families SAFE.   If that’s hating, then we have different definitions and different values, and I don’t think we really do.

We are AMERICANS, we want the best for EVERYONE, no matter what color, no matter what religion, no matter what their political ideology…until that ideology becomes NOT AMERICAN, until that ideology sounds, more every day, as if it’s one that’s failed already many times around the world, until that ideology costs us in terrible, economy-exhausting ways we can’t even yet imagine.  America was created to keep people safe, free-thinking, open.  Americans know that some will be very rich and some will be very poor and that’s LIFE.  Americans know we cannot make laws that stand in the way of human nature.  Some will work hard and earn more, some will not, or cannot, and we can help them, but we have stopped admiring success and that is dangerous in this great country of amazing success for so many.

We are now allowing mind bending drugs to be legalized, we are killing infants, we are allowing lawbreakers to sue us, we are taking guns from law-abiding people, knowing full well that we will never get the guns from criminals desiring to kill or rob or rape at gunpoint.  We have Cities in America now where our laws are openly broken!  We are taking in illegal immigrants who plead asylum as they proudly wave the flag of that same country they’re seeking asylum from!  We are blamed for little children who’ve been mistreated and now come to America with illness or to die!

I think I could go on and on with what’s wrong lately, I think you could add to a long list, couldn’t you.   The truth is WE ARE STILL AMERICA and we are going to make America GREAT AGAIN.   I know there are many of you who’ll say America has a dark past but it’s a country, not heaven, and I do not believe there is one country on this great earth which hasn’t had things in its past it’s not proud of.    It’s how we’d overcome those things which made us the envy of every non American around the world!

WE MUST CELEBRATE AMERICA AGAIN, Praise our Lord and Maker for all he gave us and hold on to it as tightly as possible.    It’s easier to HATE hard than to WORK hard but we must stop the HATE toward this marvelous land and pull our big boy pants on and work hard in school, get good jobs, and contribute in the ways our forefathers did….remembering this American Dream was OURS and how blessed WE WERE to have it even in times of adversity and even oppression.

How is it that some families survived and thrived through some of our dark history and others hold onto it?  We need to ask ourselves that question and answer it this way:

AMERICANS HAVE IT MADE AND WE NEED TO ALL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT… STOP DROPPING OUT OF SCHOOL, STOP DOING DRUGS THAT SCREW OUR BRAINS UP AND CONTRIBUTE TO OUR MAKING LOUSY CHOICES THAT WILL AFFECT OUR WHOLE LIVES, STOP THE HATE AND, INSTEAD, HONOR OUR FOREFATHERS BY APPRECIATING THE COUNTRY THEY SO BRILLIANTLY FOUNDED AND BEING THRILLED BY THE OPPORTUNITIES AFFORDED TO US.

LET ME GET TO ONE OTHER THING: ME!  I am doing my best to get America back on track and I welcome you to join me.  I beg you to join me.  Stop the hate toward ME, too!  Trust me, my results are becoming obvious in job creation, etc….stop buying into the stupid attacks on me and my family and LET’S GET TOGETHER AND DO GOOD FOR OUR COUNTRY;  I believe it’s your last chance.   The Left won’t allow DJT to make any points, but it’s not Donald Trump who’s getting those points when things go well, it’s OUR COUNTRY!  THINK ABOUT THAT!!  Blocking ME is blocking AMERICA!

MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS AMERICA.  goodnight.

Changing Democrats?

I have a new neighbor here at the condos.  He’s about thirty, very nice looking, pays $3700 a month to RENT the 2 bedrm/3 bath unit (HOW MUCH??) and drives a mean, new BMW, so he does very well in the billboard business (owning and renting, not painting, apparently them!).

Thursday, we met in front of our units and chatted.  He said he liked my car and pointed to my Wounded Warrior small bumper sticker on the….um..bumper!, and I dared ask, having seen that he admires soldiers, “Are you a Conservative?”    Gulp.

He kind of stammered and I prodded… “Go ahead, give me some hope!” laughingly.

He said “I was a liberal, but the more I hear, the more conservative I’m getting.  I have some Conservative values…like sanctuary cities are nuts….and while I used to be 70% liberal, now I can’t listen to them talk, and I think I’m 10% liberal and 60% Conservative”…..( I don’t know if he’s 30% Communist or he’s just really bad at math, but it WAS hopeful!!)

I had to share that because IT GIVES ME HOPE! He’s still at the point where he doesn’t like Trump, insists he present his tax returns, and I could tell he’s a tad nervous about admitting he’s turning Conservative, an idea made deplorable and disgusting by the Left.  Republicans MUST start to shove HARD against….

This hesitation, this embarrassment to say he’s Conservative is what we need to see CHANGE.  Republicans MUST start to shove HARD against….If there is ONE THING before this election we MUST CHANGE, it is that……..make people proud to be Conservative again.  It could be done.  I’m afraid a LOT of people do not like identifying with Donald J. Trump’s rhetoric.  I’m writing a speech for him and will publish it tomorrow:  very humble me believes my speech could help in the direction I’m going here 🙂

So, do any of YOU know someone who was liberal but is getting FED UP!?    TELL US!!!  What do you think of my neighbor Zach’s opinion?  (Yes, two Z’s living next to each other…and his last name starts with Z, too!)

THIS MORNING’S ADDITION: I paid my mortgage on line a week or so ago and accidentally gave a wrong bank account number so I had to call this morning and straighten it out.  It was clear that who I was talking to, “Danielle,” was really nice and a Black American.  After we were through, I said “Did you have a nice Easter?” (gulp)…She said ‘I really did, I hope you did, too”….I said “I can always tell a Christian over the phone..”   She told me she could, too, and added..”You know what?  This year I found many more Christians calling in, wishing Happy Easter, and talking about faith!”    Huh!  A good sign?

Sunday Faith Blog; Happy Easter…….

On this Easter Sunday, we give thanks that HE IS WITH US…..even in times of great destruction, hardship, fear and sorrow.   

I believe that He shows us HOPE if we’re wise enough to see it.  The image below is the cross found still standing and still gleaming in a ray of light photographed by those first allowed into Notre Dame on Monday.

These are two of the 9/11 crosses left standing in New York after the attacks.

“Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.”  Watchman Nee.

“6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 

7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”  Luke 24: 6-7

I wish you a beautiful Easter Sunday…one of promise, hope, and stronger faith.

God bless you all!

Love, Z

Easter Saturday

Jesus’ loved ones waited that Saturday after his crucifixion…for what would happen… 

And we, too, wait with anticipation of the return of Christ and the fulfillment of His many promises, remembering all the events of Holy Week and His great sacrifice…..I pray that the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday becomes a day of contemplation for us all.

Blessings!

Good Friday……..

This is marvelous stuff I accidentally put together and then realized how wonderfully it worked! Down below is a kind of contemporary confirmation by the great C.S. Lewis of Isaiah 53, just below, and I understand that faithful Jews do not read or share it because it’s ‘so close’…..so clear.  So Jesus.

1 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? 

2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. 

3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. 

4 Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. 

5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. 

6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

7 He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. 

8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. 

9He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. 

10 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. 

11 After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied ; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. 

12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,and he will divide the spoils with the strong,because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Yes, the Old Testament clearly showed who was coming in the New Testament, not only in Isaiah, of course….And here is what I think is an excellent explanation of WHY (by C.S. Lewis):

“Why is God landing in this enemy-occupied world in disguise and starting a sort of secret society to undermine the devil? Why is He not landing in force, invading it? Is it that He is not strong enough? Well, Christians think He is going to land in force; we do not know when. But we can guess why He is delaying. He wants to give us  the change of joining His side freely. . . When the author walks on to the stage the play is over (Z; I have always felt this but never put it in these utterly brilliant words) God is going to invade, alright; but what is the good of saying you are on His side then? . . .For this time it will be God without disguise; something so overwhelming that it will strike either irresistible love (Z: for believers) or irresistible horror into every creature . . God is holding back to give us that chance. It will not last for ever. We must take it or leave it.”

Take it.  It’s free.   God bless you all on this very Good Friday and always,

Immigration LIABILITY?

This is a comment that didn’t get the conversation I’d hoped it would get yesterday so I’m posting it TODAY!

It was so funny to watch lib Leslie Marshall on OUTNUMBERED yesterday asked why NOT send immigrants to Sanctuary Cities??? She literally stammered and came up with a few flimsy reasons, including (first one she listed) “If anybody gets injured while we’re moving them, there are legal liabilities!  Especially to children!”   WHAT?

LEGAL LIABILITIES? Since WHEN does AMERICA have to worry about people getting hurt while we move ILLEGAL TAKERS from OUR COUNTRY to stupid unsovereign sanctuary cities?   It’s OUR PROBLEM??? Marshall then talks about “how are we going to feed and clothe them?”   That’s the POINT, Leslie!

SEND THEM BACK, it’s not AMERICA’S PROBLEM to FEED and CLOTHE law breakers! Unless they’re in prison…… Remember when, about 20 years ago, there were lawsuits (they probably still get them in our country) where illegal migrants were crossing our deserts and some died from the heat, etc.,  so they sued US because “Americans had to know they were coming and they didn’t leave food and water for us?”

I don’t mean to sound heartless, and I understand they’re mostly good people who want a better life, but it’s OUR FAULT? Yes, we must help, but to accuse US of anything, to threaten legal action against US? HOW’S ABOUT US THREATENING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THEM?

SEND THEM BACK and HELP THEM WHEN THEY”RE THERE………….that’s humane and efficient. Let liberal college jerks go live in Guatemala and Honduras and Salvador and start businesses for these people, start hospitals for these people, teach them to grow food. Let the people clean up their own governments……NOT SCREW OURS UP.

???   Do I sound SO heartless?  OK!

Quotes again…I am truly puzzled!! Help!

Here’s more I needed to share after yesterday’s rant about Trump’s tweet to Omar:

“In addition to mentioning  (Steven)King and the president, the Democratic leadership said it’s awaiting an apology from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy for a tweet last year saying “we cannot allow” three Jewish men*—George Soros, Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg—to “BUY this election! Get out and vote Republican November 6th. #MAGA.”

*Z:  McCarthy didn’t include “three Jewish men,” the Democrats did!  So who is the antisemite?   A Republican can’t mention 3 men who happen to be Jewish without being called antisemitic?  Does a Republican have to throw a Protestant’s name in there even if he or she doesn’t apply?!

And here’s a fun quote from Omar:

“You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, indigenous [peoples], immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?”

Z:  She learned WHAT, to be antisemitic?  To lie and treat a sitting president like he’s dirt under her fingernails?  What ‘hate’ has Trump exhibited “whole life”?     Yes, he did say, about the N Carolina incident, that there are nice people on both sides…suggesting some Klan people are ‘nice,’ too, but they are.  Unless, like the Left does, we have to completely identify as ONE part of our lives.  Like if you’re gay, you can’t be nice, or productive or, for that matter, hateful?   I hate the KKK as much as anyone, but I am SURE there are people who, if I didn’t know they belonged, I’d be friendly with.  That’s what Trump meant!  And he’s surrounded himself with Black Americans in high positions in his company all his life!  He hasn’t shown hate toward Muslims for Muslims sake….he hates terrorists…he hasn’t been inappropriate toward immigrants, just those totally inappropriate and threatening to the country he is president of!

What do you think of these additional quotes I found?

Have we seen anything quite this nasty from Republicans?

Quote puzzler:

“On Friday — and again on Saturday — Trump shared a clip of Omar edited to portray her as being dismissive of the 9/11 attacks. The clip presents footage of Omar at a California banquet in March hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, saying, “CAIR was founded after 9/11* because they recognized that some people did something,” and mixes those words with footage of the burning World Trade Center and Pentagon.  (*Z: that’s a lie…CAIR was founded in 1994)

“WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” Trump wrote in the caption.

Omar’s full comment was “Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen, and frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it…. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.””

Z:  The Democrats are outraged at Trump for having tweeted what he did.  He showed her speaking, exactly quoted what she said, and shows 9/11 pictures, saying NEVER FORGET….can someone tell me how heinous Trump’s tweet was, how he misquoted, or how it’s his fault that Omar is supposedly getting death threats?  He clipped part of her quote but it didn’t misrepresent what she said!!   Or am I missing something? 🙂  And can’t we say NEVER FORGET 9/11 anymore?   Does that hurt Muslim’s feelings? !!   My response is that 9/11 hurt OUR feelings pretty badly, too!

Notre Dame…

I can barely allow myself to think about the Notre Dame Cathedral fire today.   I love that church, lived near it for 4 years, took friends there., etc. 

They are saying there was work being done there.   This is a day after I saw articles about how Christian churches throughout Europe are being attacked.

It may have been an electrician.   I believe had it been an electric situation, fire fighters could have put it out in no time flat because they are GOOD in Paris.

I look at this as a dreadful metaphor of Christianity in Europe….going up in flames.

No, it’s not that Europe is “soulless” as some say; it’s my experience that churches are still full,  communities still revolve around them, Bible studies are growing there (though admittedly not as amazingly fast as in Africa)…..no it’s not soulless, it’s that others are moving in who have no souls and don’t want Europe to.   Not a soul based on Jesus Christ, anyway.

Monday Funny… Even on this date!

My friend CC sent me these CELL PHONE jokes and I loved them enough to pass them on to you!   Ain’t it the truth?    (thanks, CC!)  And it’s APRIL 15…TAX DAY…we can ALL use a laugh!

You’ve all seen people taking pictures of their food, that is until both friends sitting at the table decide to call OTHER people and chat with them throughout the dinner the original people are supposedly “sharing”!! 

Oh, if you all knew how many times I’ve been grateful for my land line!  “WHERE is my cell phone?!”

I proudly do NOT have an iPhone, I have a TracFone which cost me about $80 and costs me about $5 for 1000 texts…Pay as you Go…Cheap, excellent…takes pictures, has maps on it, sends texts, emails….and CHEAPER! (I highly recommend this for teens who are getting a first cell, by the way…why spend $1000?)

I’m not sure I ever did this, but I got enough of those calls…Not fun, but I do wish people didn’t know it was me sometimes!

Heck, I’m such a dinosaur that when I have to turn left but have people bearing down on me from behind, I put my left hand down with the old turn-signal manual sign and my blinker goes on!  I’m sure 90% of those behind me don’t even know what that means, right?

LOVE AND MISS THIS!!

ANYBODY RELATE?!
