McCain….(then please read my Sunday Faith post below this!)

I saw THIS ARTICLE and had to post, even tho it’s Sunday and I usually try to ignore politics.

McCain is now saying “That’s how Dictators got started,” in reference to Trump’s treatment of the media.  From the link, and NBC’s MEET THE PRESS and very liberal Chuck Todd:

“McCain, who has sparred with Trump on a number of issues, defended the necessity of the media.  “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” the Republican senator joked to Todd. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.””

sour-grapes

SO:  John McCain…is his constant slamming of Trump lately sour grapes? “I WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT!”   or is he right?

I’m not sure Trump’s closing down a free media, are you?   Obama picked on leftwing journalist at his pressers much more often than not; did McCain see that as a threat to the media?  Obama criticized and said really belittling things like “don’t get your news there” about FOX a LOT, did McCain criticize that?   Is “fake news” something we need to recover from or is it a Trump ‘fake story’?

Sunday Faith Blog; Immigration and Abortion..and the worst

I heard Father Morris, a regular FOX contributor, say something very interesting about IMMIGRATION and the role of CHRISTIANS.  I’m putting it in quotes but I’m paraphrasing:

“The Good Samaritan story tells us how we should help all those in need.  The other side of that story is we have a responsibility to keep our own people safe. ….When I was little and all 7 of us kids were in the car, Dad would pick up hitchhikers, though Mom was against it. Sometimes he’d get close to a hitchhiker and decide he shouldn’t pick that one up and he’d just drive by.”

As the FOX interviewers responded, he added this but it barely got heard “….what might be important to also mention is that I don’t think Dad would have picked anyone up today.”

I thought that was a terrific answer to the challenge we Christians face in the wake of being called uncaring for not helping, for not allowing in, every illegal immigrant coming to our shores.

What do you think?

ALSO:  Please say a prayer for Norma McCorvey, or JANE ROE of Roe v Wade, which made abortions up to 3 months legal.  She has passed away at the age of 69.  After abortion was made legal, she became a Christian, confessed that her pregnancy was not a rape, and worked against abortion for the rest of her life.  She also then became a Roman Catholic and, again, worked harder than ever to protect the sanctity of life which the court decision in her case ignored.  This was a woman of courage and her turning to faith, which also turned her from her lesbian lover only to become “only friends” for the rest of their lives, is inspiring.

Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear* the LORD, and depart from evil.

* ‘fear’ is often used and mistaken to mean BE SCARED OF GOD and many old Hebrew translations use ‘awe’ of the Lord in this kind of scripture.  Amen.

Have a beautiful Sunday!    And, another story:  please pray for HER.   I know how she feels.  Have Kleenex close by.

VERY troubling information from FOX on Flynn and the Administration?

What do you think of THIS?  The Left’s going to REALLY go to town over it.

spies

The worst that can happen is Trump is lying, Pence is lying and they’re both impeached because whatever Flynn apparently relayed to them is hot and should have been exposed when they found out.

The best is that Flynn said absolutely nothing untoward with Russia and so this is no big deal.  Flynn is now admitting he does remember talking sanctions, however, so did he really lie to Pence or is Pence lying?

I thought there were transcripts of the conversations between Flynn and Russia?

On the other hand, nothing was said at all  last night on the news…CNN, FOX…zip.  I heard FOX’s John Roberts ONCE and that was the end of the story.

I think that’s telling!  Or have YOU heard about this story and any scuttlebut on it?

A TALE …of TRUMP and MEDIA?

cherokee“One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’

The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.'”

I was going to prepare this for a Sunday Faith Blog then got to thinking how it reminds me of the way the Democrats are working behind the scenes to destroy Trump in every way they can;  media, comedy insults on TV, misleading headlines on home pages, mischaracterizations, lies, etc etc……..

America is the GOOD in the story above…if we keep feeding it, it will WIN.   There is definitely a ‘battle going on’ within Democrats these days, they’re in a total tailspin over Trump and what he wants to do.  If they continue to do the terrible things it’s quite obvious the DNC is promoting (ever see days of the same exact terms for certain things on all new channels?  That’s not an amazing coincidence!  Think those protesters’ buses are paid for by themselves?!!! etc etc), Evil will win and Good will die.

We have to feed America with positive, optimistic things….Can we EVER get the Democrats to recognize that?    What do you think?

Resistance? Shadow? Which type of Government is this jerk planning?

IS THIS NUTS?  
“Shadow Government?”  that’s a misnomer;  I’d call it a “Resistance Government.”

PLEASE tell me what you think………

Trump, Flynn, Manafort, Russia….what?

The Trump administration seems to be imploding.  Or may be EXploding?

Yes, I know many of you will think “this is just the media!”  but I don’t think so.

What’s particularly cringe worthy is the Administration blaming the leakers when what’s being leaked is questionable;  sort of like when Hillary was blaming leakers to deflect what was actually leaked and we didn’t like that one bit.

Questions asked this morning are WHY DIDN’T TRUMP DO SOMETHING ABOUT FLYNN WHEN HE KNEW ABOUT ALL THIS BUT ONLY WAITED TILL IT CAME OUT ABOUT FLYNN’S CALLS TO RUSSIA?  OBVIOUSLY, WE MUST WONDER IF TRUMP TOLD FLYNN TO TALK TO RUSSIA, TOO.  WHY DIDN’T THEY TELL PENCE (which makes me kind of sure something untoward was being done by Flynn)?   There are too many questions for me to ask here but this is BAD.

Tell us what you think……and, hint; it can’t be ALL the media’s fault….plenty of Republican congresspeople aren’t too happy about all this, either.

“Politics as usual?”  Not sure.

Chadwick Moore; You have GUTS

I FOUND THIS SO REASSURING AND EXCITING TO READ AND HOPE YOU DO, TOO!  ADD-ON: *I posted this 2 days ago but he was on Carlson last night;  did you see him?  Very articulate and charming… He says:

“When I was growing up in the Midwest, coming out to my family at the age of 15 was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Today, it’s just as nerve-wracking coming out to all of New York as a conservative. But, like when I was 15, it’s also weirdly exciting.

I’ve already told my family, and it’s brought me closer to my father. He’s a Republican and a farmer in Iowa, and for years we just didn’t have very much to talk about. But after Trump’s inauguration, we chatted for two hours, bonding over the ridiculousness of lefties. But we also got serious: He told me that he is proud of my writing, and I opened up about my personal life in a way I never had before to him.”

There’s something very cool going on in this country…As you know, the guy who Berkeley protesters wouldn’t let speak and even burned things around the venue because of, Milo Yiannopoulos, “a controversial alt-right extremist who is an outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself),”  has been on the same page as this guy in my linked article for a long time.

I’m not sure why GAYS are particularly attracted to Republicanism now!?  I’m hoping and praying that their “coming out” (again!) is only more remarkable than most young peoples’ because we don’t think of gays being conservative (other than the Log Cabin Group) and that is why we’re hearing so much about it.  PLUS, they have the GUTS, after having come out and courageously faced a new future for themselves as gays, to continue to exercise those guts, right?  Wouldn’t it be amazing if MANY younger people, straight or gay, are thinking about the horrible way Democrats are handling themselves and which is REALLY the racist, bigoted, fascist, negative, unpatriotic party?….not that I want to throw too many insults around.  Well, OK, for people like Schumer and Pelosi and others, I DO 🙂

Could this start a more widespread change in this country for the better?, a return to the importance of family, putting our countrymen first, respect for all people and faiths who don’t want to kill anybody, etc etc?  Will a sense of this possible change incite the Soros crowds to act out even more in the future in desperation?

With men like Chadwick Moore speaking out for Conservatives, isn’t that a very good thing?  Think CNN would touch him with a ten foot pole or is it to threatening to their world view?

VOTER FRAUD and TRUMP and Surrogates

IF Trump does not provide FACTS on voter fraud, I don’t know what will happen but it isn’t good.  A federal election official is now asking for details for what the linked article calls “baseless claims,”  Trump surrogate Sarah Huckabee has now said there was fraud in her state of Arkansas “a judge had ballots sitting on his desk,” and nobody knows details on that and the news is calling that a lie, too…..Even FOX has been saying “we checked and we can’t find anything….”

Mr. Trump and his surrogates MUST MUST stop talking at all if they can’t back up their ‘facts’ with indisputable information that SHOWS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT.

Or STOP talking about VOTER FRAUD!  WHY still talk about it?   Can’t Trump LET ANYTHING GO??

Also, that old crotchety freak Bernie Sanders is calling the sitting president a “pathological liar,” and Al Franken is saying he’s spoken to GOP members who think Trump is “mentally ill.”     Ya, Sanders and Franken say those things?  WHO CARES?   I print these things here to ask how our country can survive this type of HORRID name calling to a sitting president.  Have we completely lost our way and our dignity?

WHEN is Trump going to STOP saying things without backup information?  That’s so easy to provide!  If you’re saying it, you must have a reason and proof for saying there’s fraud, right?

Help me out here.   Z

With things are as upsetting as they are in America these days, and who knows what challenges some of us are facing in our personal lives,  I thought this was inspiring and important: “What is it that causes people to shake like leaves today at the first hint of danger?  It is simply the lack of God living in their soul, and having the world in their hearts instead…..God declares the peace that transcends all human understanding to be the inheritance of those who have learned to rest only in Him.”*

“The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4.

Have a peaceful Sunday!
