The Dumbest Meme And Movement Of The Month

After about the 5th time this image appeared on my timeline, I had to comment. This is the silliest meme of January 2017, and there have been loads of baddies this month. But first, let me provide some much needed backstory. The new administration is rightly putting an end to taxpayer funded global warming propaganda. President Trump thinks neither the government, or its employees, should be lying to Americans, or presenting themselves as experts on issues that are in no way settled science.

All mentions of global warming and climate change were removed from the White House site. Then the order went down the chain of command to all the public service minions - many of whom would likely be serving Starbucks, if government weren't so big, and very generous with taxpayer money. Since so many people have gotten insanely wealthy on this scam, and others are too far gone to embrace the truth, there are those who think they can "resist" the lawful orders of their boss, and continue agitating on company equipment and time. It started first with some Park Service twits using social media to spread global warming agitprop. This was outright insubordination. So they then decided to go rogue. Even created a group with a logo that looked a little too similar to the Park Service logo, which has since been changed. They call themselves Alt US Nat Park Service. It would be more accurate to call them Ctrl - Us, as all these global warming nut-jobs and collectivists want to do is micromanage the lives of everyone else.

So now that you know the background, its time for the ridiculous meme that got my attention.

Isn't it glorious? Those rogue Park Rangers are regular freedom fighters. I bet they can't wait to see their names engraved on Partisan Rock to immortalize their heroic stand against Liberty and Truth.

Nobody is "coming for the scientists" from this administration . With this past election, Americans said enough with the lies, the falsified data, the ignoring periods when both the temperature and CO2 concentration wildly differed from the present age. That is NOT science. It is propaganda. And taxpayers certainly don't want to pay people to lie to them.

There is a reason the globalists stopped calling it global warming - their catastrophic predictions FAILED, dramatically. Climate change is a meaningless phrase, as the climate ALWAYS changes. Long before the SUV, and long after we are gone, it will continue changing, something any scientist who is not getting paid to produce bogus results would know.

Higher CO2 levels lead to higher crop yields. Yet the global warming believers fail to share that bit of good news. CO2 is NOT a pollutant. It is vital to life on this planet. So why is the government so determined to call it a pollutant and regulate it through higher taxes? That is either diabolical, or ignorance of the HIGHEST order.


Obligatory Music Break - Explaining Photosynthesis To Victims Of Government Education




The Earth's atmosphere is 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen and 1 percent other gases, including about 0.04 percent carbon dioxide. CO2 is ONLY 0.04 of the atmosphere! Yet somehow it is so powerful, that even the slightest, and often natural increase, is suppose to catastrophically change the GLOBAL climate.


The largest producers of CO2 are all NATURAL SOURCES -  and CO2 is absorbed by plants who then convert it to Oxygen - do they even teach photosynthesis in schools these days? Shouldn't somebody, like say a Park Ranger, who is tasked with protecting natural resources, understand these basic truths?


Nowhere in their mission is it indicated that they should shill for global warming, or any other collectivist fantasy. On the contrary, their job is to maintain the parks and educate the public. That's it. If they would focus on that job, they might notice that the climate has been rather stable for over two decades. If they want to play the fool on their own time and on their own computers, go for it. However, when employees represent the United States, they have a responsibility to uphold the truth, and refrain from sharing their apocalyptic fiction.



The last post I saw from the group before typing this post was a complaint that the hiring freeze was hurting their ability to do their job. Welcome to the real world, pal. Why not get off social media and work a few extra hours. That's what taxpayers have been doing nonstop for the last 8 freakin' years. The freeze was necessary because the last administration doubled the nation's debt. His job-killing regulations left nearly 95 million people out of the workforce. His attempt to seize control of health care is another fabulous disaster. So guess what, like any business that finds itself on thin ice, the government must tighten its belt. Get used to it, and be thankful taxpayers are willing to bleed a little more to have the NPS.  It seems ridiculous that its even a Federal responsibility - but we'll save that for another day.

Its going to be tough in the short term. But if we stay the course, when the economy truly recovers and people are back to work in the private sector, we might be able to hire a few more needed government employees, maybe even Park Rangers.

When it comes to global warming, it amazes me that so many people are this gullible. They will believe whatever the government spoon feeds them. Its frightening that people like crazy Al Gore, the man who bought a beachfront mansion while predicting that the ocean would rise by 20 FEET, is still taken seriously. Use the brain God gave you. THINK!!! Stop relying on government bureaucrats determined to profit from your ignorance. And don't get your talking points from people hanging out with Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo all day.

I love it!!



DISCLAIMER - I have met many hard working Rangers at National Parks who were excellent at what they do. I have been fortunate to have visited nearly every major battlefield in the US, and been amazed by their wealth of knowledge and the passion they bring to their job. This article is not about those fine folks.  This is directed towards those people who are insubordinate. And if they use their position in government to establish credibility in order to distribute propaganda, they deserve to be called out publicly.

It Can Only Get Better With President Trump

This was the first inauguration I have watched in decades. Not because of any particular animosity towards the previous Presidents. They generally met my expectations. Bush 1 was an establishment candidate who largely abandoned Reagan’s legacy. Clinton was the
womanizing sexual predator I had met in Little Rock on a college trip in 1987, with the added bonus of an extremist wife with an unrestrained lust for power. Bush 2 was a big government Republican. Obama was a red diaper baby, and a community agitator groomed from birth to “fundamentally transform” this country. 

When people gain power who do not believe in the Rule of Law, or think the Constitution is just some helpful, antiquated suggestions, you can be sure their time in office will not go well for the average American. That has been the case for the last several decades, where the only difference between the administrations was the pace that Liberty declined.

Now, there is finally some hope. America elected a Patriot. He may not be a perfect man, no politician is, but he loves the United States - that is a YUGE improvement over recent Presidents. He is not an establishment insider. His picks for his cabinet already demonstrate an understanding that Big Government and crony capitalism never works. Liberty is always the answer. The Rule of Law must apply to everyone, regardless of title, wealth, or power. NOBODY is too big to jail. Wisdom is preferred to ideological foolishness. And most importantly, Godliness exalts a nation, not division and strife.

The last 8 years demonstrates the importance of electing and appointing competent people. Community agitators, academic pinheads, and extremists, are dangerous folks, especially when they seize power. We should expect MORE from a President. But since the bar was set SO LOW by the previous administration, whatever President Trump does, or doesn’t accomplish, will likely be a YUGE upgrade. I am confident we will NEVER see anything like the following from President Trump, or his administration. That alone is worthy of celebration.

The media and historians will do their best to suggest the Obama administration was a success. It is good to remember the catastrophic failures of the last 8 years. This will make it so much easier to appreciate the stark difference between good leadership, and the alternative.


1. An American president apologizing to other countries.



2. An American president bowing before some 3rd world monarch, tin-pot dictator, or to any world leader.




3. An American president presenting incompatible DVDs to the British Prime Minister, insulting our closest international friend, and long time ally, as a formal gift, while receiving in return a near priceless pen holder crafted from the timbers of the 19th century British warship HMS Gannet (whose sister ship, HMS Resolute, provided the wood for the Oval Office's desk).



4. A Secretary of State giving a tchotchke with the word "reset" mistranslated as "overcharge" to Russia, our largest global rival.


5. An American president who publicly insults the newly elected Prime Minister of Israel, the only Democracy in the Middle East and our greatest ally in the region, by refusing a time honored custom of a personal call to congratulate him/her on their victory. It wasn't the first snub or the last. Former President Obama also used taxpayer dollars in an attempt to undermine Israeli elections.



6. A President who would select a UN Ambassador who would dare float a trial balloon that America should invade Israel because of some deluded definition of genocide.

7. An administration with available assets and many options, who would deny multiple requests for help from Americans, including the Ambassador, who were being assaulted by islamic terrorists. And then lie about it ... often.



8. An American president who is a follower, rather than a WORLD LEADER.





11. A President who would increase the debt by $9.3 Trillion in just 8 years, leaving the country with $19.9 Trillion in debt, or $166,000 per taxpayer.



12. An administration that suggests that the solution to global terrorism is more jobs for terrorists.

13. An administration that promotes a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements in their sovereign territory, and then fails to block this travesty.


15. An administration that hates America, and seeks to divide it by race, sex, party, sexual preference, and sows strife at every turn. President Obama was uniquely qualified to stamp out the embers of tribalism and racial discord. Had he made this a priority, even with so many other disasters and blunders under his belt, his legacy would have been secured. Instead, he set out almost immediately to create as much hostility as possible, fanning the flames of unrest at every turn. His promotion of violence led to the execution of several police officers in the name of social justice. His rhetoric caused a sharp rise in police deaths, and set back race relations by 50 years in America.



16. A President who insults millions of hardworking entrepreneurs and small business owners by saying, “You didn’t build that!
Divisive remarks like that are based on the false premise that without government, individuals are powerless, mere children that need cradle-to-death micromanagement by bureaucrats in order to survive. No other statement more clearly reveals the difference between collectivists, and people who believe in freedom.

Government creates nothing but liabilities. True economic growth comes from individuals who are willing to invest, work hard, and see their dream come true. More often than not, its the government which is the biggest roadblock in the way of entrepreneurial success. For community agitators, social justice warriors, bureaucrats, and academic pinheads, who have never accomplished anything meaningful in their lives, this is a painful truth. Prosperity only manifests where Liberty flourishes. Big government is NOT Liberty, it is tyranny. 


 
17. An administration that specifically targets a whole industry for destruction, in one case declaring war on coal, leading to the loss of 50,000 jobs, and many bankruptcies.



18. An administration that creates an $80 Billion dollar slush fund to give taxpayer dollars to their crony capitalist friends’ pet green projects. The vast majority of these “investments” are catastrophic failures, creating even more debt for future taxpayers, and proving that community agitators and academic pinheads have no place in government.



19. An administration that declares CO2, a gas that is vital to life on this planet, is a pollutant and must be regulated.

 

20. No other remark revealed what was in Obama’s heart better than his 2008 attack on people in
small towns and the Midwest, calling them “bitter” and suggesting that “clinging to guns or religion” was somehow a bad thing. As President, his administration attacked people of faith at every turn, and constantly sought to undermine the 2nd Amendment. At the same time, his administration armed drug cartels, jihadis, and supported extremists all over the world. So apparently, it wasn’t necessarily guns or religion that were the problem. As long as murderers and terrorists were armed, that was OK. However, according to this administration, law abiding Americans must be disarmed. Christians, Yazidis, or Jews could be attacked and even killed, as long as islam was defended and promoted globally.




It is time for America to take its rightful place as LEADER of the FREE World. This cannot be done when Liberty is constantly under assault from within. America cannot lead when the chains of government bondage prevent growth, and diminish the prosperity that always comes with the Blessing of Liberty. The United States CANNOT prosper when RIGHTEOUSNESS is no longer exalted!

Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people. -- Proverbs 14:34 NLT


When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan. -- Proverbs 29:2 NLT

God Blesses the nation who seeks His Face.

“...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” -- 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

And as I have done with every President, both the good and the evil, I will follow what the Word demands of all Believers.

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. -- 1 Timothy 2:1-4 NIV 


Let's Make America Great Again!!

The Collectivists Are Revolting... But Funny

Much to the collective disappointment of the media and pundits, the election was over almost as soon as the polls closed on the East Coast. They did their best to resist calling states that were obviously Trump wins, and pulled the trigger quite quickly on any state that even appeared a Clinton possibility. It did not matter. Trump still won in decisive fashion, even if the media made sure most of America was already asleep before he got to speak to the nation.

After months of being fed rigged polls, Clinton supporters were rightly shocked. Even worse were the irrational fears brought on by the almost demonic behavior of the media and Clinton towards not only Donald Trump, but anyone who would even consider voting for him. In light of the hysteria, its best to remind everyone that Trump is where he stands today, precisely because Clinton and her allies made sure he was the GOP nominee. They gave him billions in free media, and alternated between attacks and indifference towards any primary threat. They built the monster, but could not destroy it in the end.

Now its time for the weeping and gnashing of teeth. The histrionics and toddler tantrums, a staple of American collectivism, never ceases to amuse. I especially enjoyed this meme.


Look at it in all its glory. A vote for Trump in some way is detrimental to all these folks. The creator of this meme never takes a moment to consider one very important point. Only the left divides people. They thrive on division and strife, never wanting to see people as just simply - AMERICANS.

Against All Enemies Foreign And Domestic: Let's consider one critical national issue carefully. On 9/11, did the Saudi terrorists take a roll call to make sure they were only targeting Christian white males? No. They crashed their planes killing people from every walk of life, every religion, every race, and every division the left could imagine. They weren't even targeting just Americans, as 372 foreign nationals were murdered that day, including a few Muslims.

Since the attack on September 11th, 139 Americans have been killed in 48 separate acts related to Islamic terror or Islam-related honor killing in the United States.  God only knows how many have been prevented by law enforcement, or botched by the terrorists themselves. It was just a few months ago that the son of a Hillary supporter, Omar Mateen, walked into Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, and murdered 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack. It would seem that islamic radicals don't seem to care if you are female, black, LGBT or whatever you imagine yourself to be.

Islam is the enemy we face today both here and abroad. Islamic dominated countries routinely murder gays, infidels, their own wives and children, and even other Muslims who don't believe as they do. Do we really want to import even more of that barbarism here? If you are concerned about the supposed rape culture on campus, check out what unrestricted immigration has done for rape in Sweden and  throughout Europe.

Because I love LIBERTY, I cannot support a candidate who has taken millions of dollars from countries who support terrorism and the spread of Islam. Because I LOVE my friends, I voted for the candidate who sees the risk in importing thousands of potentially dangerous people who would rape or kill you, no matter what group you call home. Compassion for the innocent needs to be balanced by commonsense. One the first responsibilities of POTUS is to defend this nation from enemies both foreign and domestic. If the intelligence community struggles to identify home grown islamic radicals, how are they going to successfully screen thousands of potential enemy combatants posing as refugees?

According to Pew research, Muslims represent about 4 to 8 percent of the population in Western European nations. Violent agitation is a way of life in several countries as they rarely adopt the cultural norms of their new home. Instead, they demand that Sharia law, the 7th century barbarism of the Middle East, be imposed in Europe. There is also a willingness to provide support for violent jihad in their adopted home.

In a survey commissioned by Channel 4 of UK Muslims, 4% sympathize with suicide bombers or see it as a viable form of protest. That's a potential talent pool of 100,000 suicide bombers. And speaking of that LGBT friend, 52% of UK muslims surveyed want to ban homosexuality. What does ban mean? Well, in more than few islamic countries it means death.

ALL AMERICANS matter to me, and voters like me. It is for that very reason we supported the only reasonable alternative to save the Republic from this growing threat.

Regime Change

The establishment in both parties have had multiple chances to get this country headed in the right direction. Since both have proven incapable of substantive and positive change, maybe its time to try something different? If your choices continue to be either hump or death, maybe its time for regime change?




Don't consider Islam a real threat? Take any issue and let's compare the two candidates. 

Does granting citizenship and benefits to illegal aliens help any citizen? No. It means jobs are taken, wages go down, and taxes go up to pay for all the free benefits handed out to these new citizens. Plus, the added bonus of school and prison overcrowding, higher insurance premiums, more crime and on and on. How does that help your friends? Uncontrolled immigration helps nobody.

How does higher energy prices help any of these disappointed groups? Last I checked, we all endure the same misery at the pump and on our energy bills.

Raising taxes has never stimulated an economy or created jobs. With roughly half the population already idle, how does putting even more people out of work through bigger government and unrestricted immigration help anyone?

Abortion murders minorities and females at disproportionate rates. How does making it even easier to kill a child even up until birth help anyone from these groups? 

Obama and Clinton have created the refugee crisis by attacking and encouraging rebellion throughout the Middle East. In the process, they helped arm what would become ISIS. So, much of the problems facing this planet can be traced to their foreign policy blunders. And yet the left thinks she is the solution?

Maybe its time my LGBT+, Female, Black, Latino/a, Muslim friends stop with their tribal, or collectivist outlook, and start looking out for the only nation on the planet that offers them any hope of individual Liberty. Collective rights deprive the individual of their Liberty. The moment you divide the nation by color, class, religion, or sexual appetite, you have introduced division that leads to conflict - something Marxists encourage. The rights of the individual will always be trampled by the group. However, Liberty is colorblind and benefits everyone equally, especially the individual who does not fall for groupthink, collectivism, or the tribalism found in the rest of the world. In the United States, you can truly be free. Let's keep it that way.

And there was only one candidate who spoke in support of Liberty. And it sure wasn't the career politician on the ballot.

Final Thoughts

All over America, special snowflakes and social justice warriors are hurting. Classes are being cancelled, and people are gathering to discuss their feelings about this election. In fact, at the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota, Katrice Albert, the Vice President for Equity and Diversity, thought it necessary to send out a letter to comfort her little minions.

While there is no expiration date for the raw emotion many are feeling, we will continue to work diligently toward a campus climate that supports respect and inclusive excellence as we work across our differences. I say “we” because none of this work happens in isolation; it requires time and effort from all of us. As famed poet June Jordan said, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.” We can only transform and enrich our institution by learning from one another, working in partnership, and continuing to find ways to positively contribute to our campus community.

...

We know we live in difficult times — not just here, but across our country and world. We want the University of Minnesota to be an environment where bridges are built to respectfully connect our many communities. That begins with each of us and all of us. Please join us in this critical effort.

When I imagine hard times, I think of what my parents endured. Both were raised on farms during the depression. They got up before sunrise, milked cows, plowed the fields, walked to school, and repeated those same chores when they came home. If you did not work, you did not eat. Then both, while not any older than these distraught muffins, served their country during a World War.

My father fought his way through North Africa, up the Italian peninsula and into Southern France, and then finally into Germany. He was one of 5 boys who would serve their country from the same farm family. Add in two more uncles from my Mother's side of the family, and that made 7.

My Mother, who had attempted to start college, instead postponed those plans. She went to work at Tinker Air Force Base doing what she could for the war effort working on B-29 bombers.

Thousands of folks have done the same in times of national emergency, both before and after World War 2.

This country has been very Blessed. We have enjoyed far more peace than war, far more prosperity than poverty. And we have not seen a foreign enemy on our shores since Japan briefly occupied the Aleutians.

There is absolutely nothing about this time, this nation, or this election that constitutes "difficult times". The mollycoddling of this generation will make sure they will be absolutely unprepared when faced with actual difficult times. The very fact that there are universities out there who have Vice Presidents for Equity and Diversity babysitting children instead of preparing adults for the real world, demonstrates how far we have fallen.

President Trump is exactly what this country needs. Along with a swift kick in the butt for all these special snowflakes.

I guess there is a Pauline Fleming at every school.



America needs a little more George Patton, and far less Pauline Fleming.

Don't Like Trump? Blame The DNC And Their Partners In The Media

Democrats and the state run media have NO business complaining about Trump's behavior now, or in the past. Why? Because they are largely responsible for his nomination. Observe.

It has been estimated that between 10-12 million Democrats (38%) voted in the Republican primary, generally in open primaries and in the early months, when they could most influence the outcome in Trump's favor. Some were certainly voting FOR him, unwilling to support the despicable Comrade Clinton. Others had a more nefarious motive - to prevent any of the truly Conservative Republican candidates from getting the nomination. There were at least four candidates who would have presented a stark contrast, and a clear Conservative alternative, to the Alinsky-trained, anti-American Marxist in her ill-fitting Chairman Mao pantsuits.

The state run media was also complicit. As the NY Times reported in March 2016, Trump benefited from nearly $2 BILLION in free media. This was more than ALL Republican candidates combined to that point in the race, and about equal to Sanders and Clinton's combined numbers. The numbers only increased as candidates dropped out of the race, likely topping $3 Billion by the end of the GOP primary. You can attribute some of this to Trump's ability to drive the narrative. However, if the media TRULY did not want Trump as the nominee, it would not have been so OBVIOUSLY in his corner.

Consider the way Ted Cruz was treated by the media after Iowa. Cruz made the correct, and principled stand on ethanol subsidies and won big. But somehow, the media turned it into a strong showing for Marco Rubio. And then later, a victory stolen from Carson's floundering campaign, an issue Trump championed to cover his own poor showing in the state. The media continued to downplay any success that threatened their choice throughout the GOP primary. They were ALL IN for Trump. 

The Clinton campaign had assumed all along that Trump was the weakest of the bunch and encouraged their friends in the media, and their minions in the field, to help Trump secure the nomination. Once nominated, it was time to prop up their deadbeat candidate, and tear down Trump. There is some truth to the assumption of weakness. He is by no means a principled Conservative. Any reasonable Conservative candidate would make Clinton look silly on the campaign trail, especially when it came to contrasting the Conservative vision of Liberty, with the radical left's nightmare of tyranny. 

However, Trump does possess some intangibles that Conservative candidates generally do not. He has a fearlessness in the face of the state run media monopoly. The average GOP politician wilts under the pressure of lights and cameras, forgetting any sliver of Conservatism that might have at one time inspired them to run for higher office. Trump enters debates knowing that not only is he facing the dim-witted Clinton, but also hostile moderators, dirty tricks by the crew, and a left-leaning army in entertainment and social media to continue the onslaught.

The Clinton campaign had hoped to paint Conservatism as extreme, and Trump as the GOP nominee, as too dangerous for America. The reality is that most Americans are rejecting the extremism of the left, and establishment politics in general. And unfortunately for Clinton, she is the poster child for pandering establishment politicians. Her whole life has revolved around obtaining power and robbing the treasury. If she actually believed her ridiculous campaign rhetoric, she couldn't vote for herself!

It is amazing that such an utterly pathetic candidate is the very best the DNC could muster. She is SO BAD, they had to orchestrate a takeover of the GOP primary to find SOMEONE Hillary might beat. That is truly comical.



EVERYONE knows Trump is no angel. So this latest faux outrage is laughable. 

If you are upset by some salty language spoken 11 years ago, SURELY you would DEMAND that Clinton drop out of the race for enabling and covering for Bill Clinton's nearly 50 year reign of terror as a sexual predator. How many more women have to physically and emotionally suffer at the hands of these two? 

Do you REALLY want Bill prowling around the White House again as FROTUS - First Rapist of the United States? 

Do you really want a woman who was willing to intimidate and shame his victims into silence to have the power of the presidency? This same woman, in Stalin-like fashion, obtained nearly 1,000 FBI files of her political enemies and kept files of anyone she perceived to be a threat. Both the Clintons and the party have used the IRS, the media, and the courts as weapons to harass, jail, and bankrupt people who oppose them. Is that the kind of leader you desire in the White House for the next 4 years?

America can and will do much better than that.

A Modest GOP Convention Proposal

Steve Deace had great idea. Writing in Conservative Review he suggested that Donald Trump agree to unbound the delegates and let them freely decide who will be the GOP nominee. It would be the chance of a lifetime for Donald Trump to show he truly understands how to make a deal, and prove he is not just some reality TV star.

Frankly, I think its a brilliant idea. Let Donald Trump make his case as to why he is the best candidate to lead the GOP directly to the delegates chosen by the Republican rank and file. If he wins a simple majority, my support changes from ambivalent to mildly enthusiastic. Right now, I am stuck with a choice between two New York progressives with almost identical beliefs, and the one I'm supposed to support was propped up by $2 billion of fawning mainstream media support and tons of Democrat voters in select primary states who absolutely do not support a Conservative vision for America.

The total amount of free media was astounding for the reality TV star, considering his total ($2 Billion) was almost equal to the entire field of both parties ($2.2 Billion). And he doubled the total for all the GOP candidates combined. Ted Cruz was a very distant second place at $313 million. You normally do not see that level of water carrying from the mainstream media for GOP candidates. But that is just one small aspect of the Trump Putsch. Consider the tone and timing of their coverage. When Cruz "unexpectedly" won in Iowa, the story was not his brave, principled stand on Ethanol, his strong ground game, or even his big victory over Trump and the establishment, it was how well Rubio performed by landing in 3rd freakin' place! ABC news breathlessly told us about Rubio, “Rarely has a third-place finish felt so much like a victory.”

And then it became the big lie that Cruz stole the election from poor little "wash day, nothing clean" Ben Carson. The fact that Carson contributed to the continuation of that nonsense has forever tainted my opinion of the doctor. In fact, the behavior of several folks in the GOP throughout this ordeal has been quite revealing. Then came the convenient hit pieces at just the right time to check any positive Cruz momentum. It was almost as if the state-run media WANTED Trump to be the GOP nominee. How odd is that?

Then we have the primaries. Democrats have been strategically manipulating GOP primaries for years. In Texas, the GOP almost doubled the number of primary voters in 2016. In 2012, there were 9 on the ballot, but it was effectively decided Romney was the anointed one. Only 1.4 million even bothered to vote. Compare that with the 2.8 million this year. Do you really think that huge increase was all GOP voters? Maybe this year was just a wee bit different than previous years with 14 folks on the ballot, 3 serious contenders, and others with no hope simply taking votes? In 2008, with 11 on the ballot, but effectively a two person race (Huckabee and McCain), so only 1.3 million votes were cast. Sanders had no chance in Texas, so Democrat voters were free to interfere with the 2016 GOP primary. In 2008, the DNC had 2.8 million voting in the primary. This year only 1.4 voted. Did they all stay home?

And remember this, MULTIPLE media outlets breathlessly told us Cruz was in trouble, and that Trump may win in Texas. After every vote was counted, Cruz won 43.75% of the total vote, beating Trump by almost 500,000 votes - (1,239,158 to 757,489). Even with the huge influx of primary voters, Trump managed a PALTRY 27% of the vote. Setting Cruz votes aside, more votes were cast for ANYONE other than Trump - (837,154). But the net result was that Trump and the GOP dwarves kept Cruz from getting over 50% and a dominating victory. This allowed the media to spin it as a setback for Cruz, and somehow a good showing by Rubio and Trump, rather than a harbinger of how weak Trump was in solid Conservative states.

And now for the obligatory music break.




Which brings us back to the proposal. If the delegates, those REPUBLICANS selected to pick our nominee, can with a clear conscience support Trump, all opposition within the party should be silenced, and we all work together to send the spawn of satan back to Hell, Arkansas, or even better prison. Assuming Trump has all this enthusiastic support within the GOP, he should win by a landslide in Cleveland. But please, let's not allow the media and DNC shenanigans pick yet another nominee for us.

BTW - I absolutely do not think this will ever happen.

Wolves In Sheep's Clothing

Lifenews.com recently posted a brief article about an executive advisor to the World Evangelical Alliance who has come forward and publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton. How can anyone, especially someone who claims to be a follower of Christ, openly endorse a candidate that not only encourages infanticide, but sees absolutely nothing wrong with people of faith being forced to pay for it? And with Clinton, that is just the tip of the massive iceberg of the many, many reasons she is unfit for office. One could make a solid case that Donald Trump is not a strong candidate, as I have, but his future is still uncertain. We KNOW where Clinton stands on every issue, and where the proverbial and literal bodies are buried.

But this post is not necessarily about politics. It is about how large religious organizations go from being followers of Christ, to being perverted by the enemy. You see it in large denominations all the time, who have slowly succumbed to preaching nothing more than a social gospel. The denomination I grew up in, where my grandfather was a circuit riding preacher, is being split apart by people who want to reimagine God's Truth. How is this possible? Simple, they forget God's most basic command - Preach the Word. Without the Living Word, God's Incorruptible Seed as the foundation, everything else crumbles. It was to the religious leadership of His time that Jesus gave the strongest rebukes - This people honour me with their lips, but their heart is far away from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching [as their] teachings commandments of men. (From Mark 7:6-7 Darby)

I was not familiar with the WEA, so I did some quick research. They are based in New York - a red flag, have lots of meetings, and raise cash from the religiously gullible around the world. Some of their efforts may be noteworthy - for instance stopping human trafficking. But most of their work falls in line with the global socialist agenda - redistribution of wealth, climate change, global governance. Although they carefully rename everything to fool the ignorant. The global warming nonsense becomes creation care for instance, as if God needs help in this area. It amazes me that people who claim to know God think Him incapable of anticipating anything the people HE created might do on the Earth HE spoke into existence.

I stumbled across this little nugget on behalf of the 2015 Global Warming gathering of fruits, nuts, and flakes in Paris. Read this carefully

As leading evangelicals engaged in addressing the issues of poverty, creation care and climate change, we welcome the Paris Agreement signed on Saturday 12 December 2015. For the first time in history, the world has a global climate change deal where almost every nation on earth has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and has agreed to pursue efforts to keep global average temperature rise below 1.5 degrees C.
...
Alongside these actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions we welcome the reaffirmation by the world’s richest countries to provide US$100 billion in climate finance per year from 2020 to help the world’s poorest communities (for whom we have a particular concern). These funds will help developing countries to adapt to the impact of climate change and transition to clean energy themselves.
I must have missed that verse in Scripture where Jesus commanded us to take from the rich and give to the poor. And there is certainly no verse advocating one world governance. After all, for Believers, there is only one Head of the Body, something the WEA has apparently forgotten in their zeal for good works over the Word. Believers live by sowing and reaping, not by stealing and squandering - which will always be the result of big government redistribution. Bad things happen when government, no matter what form it takes - UN, EU, US Congress, or even religion, stands between Believers and Jesus Christ.

If the Holy Spirit tells me to send money to a ministry, or give to an individual, its gone without a second thought. That is SEED SOWN, and according to God's Word, I know there will be a bountiful harvest along with the Blessing intended by God for the recipient. Money confiscated by force and laundered through government organizations is consumed by the enemy and wasted. You might as well flush it down the toilet. And it certainly doesn't do squat to change the global climate.

Rather than rehash in this post the absurdity of the global warming religion, you can see some of my other posts on this subject here, and also this post - Green is the new Gospel.

A Senior US State Department Official says, “the faith community has been essential in making the case that confronting climate change is our moral responsibility...".

NO. Our MORAL responsibility is to make sure people are FREE. Free to speak their mind, worship as they choose, defend their lives and property, live in the peace and prosperity promised in the Word. That is impossible when government ne'er-do-wells want to micromanage every aspect of their lives in some vain attempt to control the climate.

The world is moving away from statism and globalism, as the BREXIT vote demonstrates. Mankind OUGHT TO BE FREE, not ruled by distant unelected bureaucrats even if they claim some religious endorsement. Impoverishing people further by refusing them the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of industrialization, reliable power and transportation for instance, guarantees generational dependence. Financing poverty leads to more misery. Eradicating opportunities for economic growth means unending, hopelessness, as you are telling people they can't make it without your help, and preventing them from even trying. Its diabolical.

Why not teach people how to believe rather than beg? Why not share a vision of prosperity, rather than perpetuate the nightmare of poverty? Why not give hope, instead of just more religious despair? Why not sow the Seed that grows faith, and let the people reap a plentiful harvest, enjoying the Grace of God? Only the Word can set people free from bondage. It all starts with someone willing to proclaim the Liberty found in the Living Word.

But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. -- Deuteronomy 8:18 (KJV)

The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. -- Proverbs 10:20-22 (KJV)

What the WEA should be doing is teaching the Word. Demand Liberty for the people, so they can prosper and NOT be dependent on others. Introduce them to their Heavenly Father so they will be complete in Christ, and connected to an Eternal source that will NEVER fail. Let the Holy Spirit and God's Wisdom inspire and unleash the creative ability in every Believer. Instead, it seriously seems that many within these global religious organizations prefer to see people struggling, rather than overcoming and victorious as God sees them. And that is the absolute worst form of arrogance, especially from those who claim they follow Jesus.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. -- Matthew 7:15-20 (KJV)

I want people to be successful, prosperous, free from both political AND religious bondage. I want them to enjoy ALL that God has given them. Jesus came that you may have and enjoy LIFE, and have it in abundance, to the full, till it overflows. Its satan who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10) If the WEA supports global redistribution, one world government, and keeping people hopeless and in poverty, they are bound by the philosophy and traditions of men, and have forgotten the Liberty that comes in Christ.

And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: -- Colossians 2:4-10 (KJV)
