I totally agree with his thoughts on this.
Great article! Thank You!
They are the Christians who hate Trump. Let’s call it for what it is: hate. It is their hate—strange for professed Christians—that dulls their ability to see the inaccuracy of their comments and their myopic views.
One sanctimonious ranting Christian said, “there’s nothing Biblical about Trump.” Actually, there’s nothing Biblical about that statement. The prophet Daniel served Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel recognized the role a pagan king played in God’s unfolding drama. The church’s ability to work with Trump is totally Biblical.
Now I must clarify, lest I incur the wrath of Trump supporters. I am not calling Trump a pagan king—I’m sure he much more moral than his enemies know—I am saying that if Daniel could work with Nebbie, how much more we can work with the Don.
I tried hard to figure out believers who hate Trump. Our side won a long overdue and miraculous victory and they choose to…

There has been no true dialogue about the issues in which they are supposedly protesting.
Colin began the protest over a year ago. What exactly has changed?
It’s not the flag or America or the Anthem that they ought to be against.
It seems to me, it’s really symbolism over substance as usual with this crowd.
Why don’t they invest in these communities to effect real positive change. Encourage others to better themselves and their situations. Tell how they are successful. Tell about how many hours they practiced, studied and worked hard to get noticed by scouts to advance their football careers.
Use their platform for positive. They can do so much with Facebook and sites the youth are on, Snapchat,etc.
I fail to see that this was done to draw attention to any issue, but to draw attention to the people themselves. Just more virtue signaling. Great job, now everyone’s pissed off!
This type of grandstanding does not work. It’s causing chaos. That’s all a giant ball of chaos and confusion.
They protest for things, but are actually doing nothing. There are no solutions that are viable and no real progress. So the point is moot and the message is one of entitlement, ingratitude and self-indulgence.
Their group think doesn’t really work. And conversely their application of group think to other groups doesn’t work either. Their kind of virtue signaling is destroying every bastion of life, sports, entertainment, academia even the weather. They have no solutions. All they do is complain and whine with visceral hatred. They have no passion just hate. Pure hate.
They drag a few unwitting souls into their cause because they pull at their heartstrings with more virtue signaling.
I guess people care more that you think they are a good person, than them actually being truthful and honest and good.

A 232 Year History of our fight against Islam & why it is no longer taught in our public schools…
When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is now the Marines (sea going soldiers).
These Marines were attached to U. S. Merchant vessels.
When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels they were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.
The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed every man, woman, and child in the village.
It didn’t take long for the Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone.
English and French merchant vessels started running up our flag when entering the Mediterranean to secure safe travel.
Why does the Marine Hymn contains the verse, “To the Shores of Tripoli “.
This is very interesting and a ‘must read’ piece of our history.
It points out where we may be heading.
Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam, and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!
At the height of the 18th century, Muslim pirates (the “Barbary Pirates”) were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic .
They attacked every ship in sight, and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms.
Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their governments and families to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.
These extortionist of the high seas represented the North African Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis , Morocco , and Algiers – collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic.
Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain .
When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France.
However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.
Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy.
Beginning in 1784, 17 years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America’s Minister to France.
That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.
In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000.
It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments.
Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace.
A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.
In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain, to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.
The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not acknowledge their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years, the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages.
The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over 20 percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.
Jefferson was disgusted.
Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming.
That changed everything.
Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand.
The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States.
Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit.
Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough, decided that it was finally time to meet force with force.
He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget.
Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.
When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli.
The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years, and raged up again in 1815.
The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as “leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.
Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply.
America had a tradition of religious tolerance.
In fact Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen.
A religion based on supremacy, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him.
His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States.
This should concern every American:
That Muslims have brought about women-only classes and swimming times in America at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged; Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from their menus; on and on and on and on..
It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America.
By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists’ agenda.
Sadly, it appears that today America’s leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious!
IF YOU DO NOT REMEMBER THE PAST, YOU ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.
Since every other part of Carol is practically new……
We’ve got quotes on replacing her transmission.
It will cost $3500 or more for her to get a rebuilt transmission. I’ve been calling around looking for a transmission to buy and get quotes from my favorite HondaWorks to put it in. So it would be a better conditioned transmission. If I had not put so much money into Carol already ……, her new engine has only 80,000 miles on it. Everything in her is practically new. Now all she needs is a transmission and maybe I have a great van for about 10 or more years??? Her replaced parts have warranties.
Sitting around stranded at home with all these boys and Anna has been challenging. We can not all fit into hubby’s work car. So NO library trips, no park trips, no field trips, etc.
Reworking my schedule and appointments. I can not take the children, I have 2 in car seats so logistically it simply does not work.
Carol the Van… despite her issues and the short time I have driven her, has been such a blessing to us.
I was able to bring home a gifted book shelf in her, Costco trips, I could fit all of my kiddos and groceries too. We could take library trips, Walmart trips, ride to grandparents, yard sale or estate sales, anything. Carol represents freedoms for our large family and She represents living life and having fun.
I’ve been thinking A LOT lately about my accident from two years ago. Trying to again, come to terms with things, such as our finances, where I am in recovery, my health, medical bills.
I have medical issues aside from my accident related issues. I’ve felt physically bad lately. I work very hard, but lately I sit and rest in between chores and duties around here.
I’ve felt a huge sense of frustration. My frustrations are currently focused on people. Those who want to be social justice warriors and rescue criminals.
I’m really bothered that some people chose to raise money for and pay the large bail that was set, for the illegal alien who hit me.
( I feel, he should not have had a bail set at all!!!)
He’s an illegal alien!!!
He left the scene of the accident!!!
He got out of the work vehicle he was driving and He took off running!!!
His vehicle was full of empty alcohol containers!!!
From his finger prints, it was found out, this was NOT his first offense.
He had a habit of drinking and driving.
He couldn’t be charged with DUI, because he left the scene didn’t get his blood tested or a breathylyzer and he wasn’t found for about a week.
His charges were puny, like assault and battery, unsafe movement, felony hit and run, open container, not lawful following traffic signal, I don’t remember how it was exactly worded and I don’t care to look at the police report anymore.
I felt screwed over by the guy who hit me, and by those in charge who did NOT keep me safe. If they could not keep the guy in jail, the least they could have done, would be to deport him. He never showed for court. He “disappeared”!)
I’m need to share and vent about the situation, so I can move along again. I think I’m healed completely emotionally, then sometimes these feelings creep in and I must address them. I don’t really talk to anyone about them. I have tried a time or two, in the past.
I am not allowed to completely vent my feelings, before I’m told, ” You can’t do anything about it, so you should just be grateful for your and your baby’s life and move on.” ( I was 36 weeks pregnant the day of the accident.)
That is what I’ve done. I am grateful and I have moved on.
I’m so very grateful for our lives. I have friends who were in less serious car accidents and “small” fender benders, who lost their babies to death before arriving at the hospital.
I know the same could have and should have happened to me, as bad as I was hit. It is a total MIRACLE, A G-d thing!!! That she and I are here today and both walking and talking and breathing on our own. My neck was broken at a level where I could have been on a ventilator and in a wheelchair for the rest of my life, but I am breathing on my own and walking. My saving grace, my spinal cord was squished but not severed.
My entire focus for rehab and recovery was being able to 100% physically take care of myself and my family without physical assistance. Which I have mostly accomplished.
I don’t want to be told How grateful I should be. I am grateful. Very grateful and so very blessed beyond measure. I really needed to just let this side out also. The anger, and it be okay to let the anger out. Not making me any less grateful or happy that we survived. But also to fully heal and recover and let go of anger. I am told the anger could be part of the reason I am in so much pain. Not just from my having surgeries and my spine fused.
I have to let go and let G-d. Part of that is me sharing what’s on my heart without judgement. Just getting it out.
I’m also making this vent public, just in case there is someone else experiencing what I have and maybe wants to talk about it or know the anger is part of healing too. I just don’t live in the anger but feel it and move on.
I think people think having a bunch of illegals roaming around, is a victimless crime. Someone told me it’s equivalent to stealing cable and told me “every body does it”. I’ve never stolen cable!!! never considered it either. But that is another post…
Very excellent and relevant video.
Some will find this video offensive, but its truth and needs to be heard in its entirety.
I’ve watched this a LOT!!! This made me laugh!
SNL used to be a GREAT show to watch.
This is funny and really great

If you don’t have the money in your account or budget to buy something, don’t charge it on credit!
Buy what you can afford and save up for larger purchases until you have the cash to afford them.
I’m saving up to have Carol’s ( my Honda Odyssey ) transmission rebuilt. Until then Hubby and I will share his car and my kiddos won’t get to do field trips because we can’t all fit in his car.
