Captivity Looming!

Captivity Looming!

Hear and pay attention, do not be arrogant, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God before he brings the darkness, before your feet stumble on the darkening hills. You hope for light, but he will turn it to utter darkness and change it to deep gloom. If you do not listen, I will weep in secret because of your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly, overflowing with tears, because the Lord’s flock will be taken captive. Jeremiah 13:15-17 NIV (read all for complete context)

When the enemy either raises up within the land or arrives on the shores–there will be no discrimination as to who will be taken captive–in the eyes of those who seek to destroy America–no one is safe or guaranteed freedom from abuse and misuse.

It would appear that the foundation of our democracy is eroding with each passing day when elected officials, turn their backs on the constitution to praise a man–a mere mortal who is not worthy of praise, yet their loyalty to him is greater than the loyalty to the Constitution. They praise the man as though he is a god–when he knows no god other than himself.

The enablers–from the WH administration to those on Capitol Hill–will be responsible for the death of a nation because the elected leadership refused to do its job. Where there is no clear, just leadership–a nation is subject to captivity and an entire civilization will cease to exist.  A study of history reveals this, but the problem with those in leadership positions is they have ignored history and we know–those of us who understand the ramifications of not knowing history–history will repeat itself until those past lessons are learned.

We have a puppet government in place and nothing will be accomplished because the puppet master wants all in disarray and confusion. He is laughing his butt off at how easily he corrupted the great American Democracy–making a fool of everyone who succumbed to his false propaganda and put the puppet leader in the White House. With promises to access to great riches, trump honed into gaining access to the Oval Office like a bee seeking pollen and nectar from flowers. For trump–the Oval Office is the flower and all his enablers are battling to be the one who brings him the most nectar–or access to enriching himself through others.

And let’s not forget those in Congress–the ones who swore an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution (trump swore an oath, too that meant nothing to him since oaths don’t). Anyone with a functioning brain and eyes can see the erosion crumbling every cornerstone of the Constitution when those appointed by trump–refuse to “tell the truth and nothing but the truth,” and Republican Senators think its a game and mock the process by not holding witnesses accountable to their oath.

The end of the matter–will not bode well for any of us. When the enemy takes a civilization captive, they don’t care what position they held in a free democracy, all become captives and subject to being treated the same. In fact, in most take-overs–in business or in countries–the current leadership is eliminated, immediately so the people won’t be tempted to listen to them any longer.

Now is the time for people to wake from their slumber and open their eyes to see what is taking place right in front of them. Secret meetings to draft a healthcare care–by arrogant senators–will indeed be a death warrant for many, if passed. Rolling back regulations put into place for consumer protections now allow corporations to get rich and the poor to suffer when air and water are polluted–too toxic to drink and all need to wear masks to breathe or die from the inability to keep lungs functioning. But perhaps, it won’t matter at all since changes to Dodd-Frank will allow banks to become predatory lenders and the poor and ignorant will buy into their schemes, leaving them penniless and destitute before long.

When people are hungry, homeless, and have no future–they accept the bread crumbs offered by the villain and pledge their loyalty to keep the bread crumbs coming, but they will never get enough to give them enough energy to rise and rebel. This is how tyranny works–fooling the people who are easily fooled and stomping down rebellion when the intelligent attempt to educate.

Look at the current budget that slashes educational funding because trump doesn’t think anyone needs a college degree to make good money. He wants people stagnant and never growing beyond manufacturing jobs–laboring with their hands, leaving their brains to atrophy because he “loves the undereducated and ill-formed;” they are so much easier to manipulate and he has proven that with his base of supporters who believe he can do no wrong.

It won’t be long before his base–some of the 26 million–who will lose their healthcare won’t be with us for long. They’ll still support him because their blind loyalty keeps them from reacting to reality; and instead they live in his delusional alternative reality–doomed.

We don’t have to live in fear from others–because of their religion or skin-color–or ethnicity when we truly know how Jesus wants us to live. “Perfect love casts aside fear.” So anyone who is touting fear or promoting it when there is no cause–check their love level–it’s probably non-existent.

Americans need to think for themselves, after weighing the evidence of what is currently going on around them. Captivity is looming in the atmosphere if we don’t rise up and fight back to protect our democracy. Every American needs to get out and vote–using the information at-hand and paying attention to those who have been elected–Republicans (at least the Tea Party Republicans) are not friends of the American people–they have a “secret” agenda to polarize the masses while they pick us off, one state at a time, leaving people totally destitute.

We need to clean house in Washington in coming elections–special and mid terms–and in 2020 elect a person who understands the challenges that face Everyday Americans, understands how government works and knows how to put qualified people in positions of authority who will not bow down to a mere human being, and will uphold their oaths of office with integrity and honor. If we vote our conscience and put country before party, we will sustain America’s greatness for generations to come.

Is Solomon Speaking To Us Now?

Is Solomon Speaking To Us Now?

Out in the open wisdom calls aloud; she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech: How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings, But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you–when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord. Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways, and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm. Proverbs 1:20-33 NIV

The question–is Solomon speaking to us now, can be answered quite literally if we’re honest about what we see on a daily basis.

The first chapter in Proverbs is dedicated to understanding the role of wisdom and what happens when we don’t exercise wisdom. This segment–referenced above–puts us–all Believers in a position to see why America is in the shape it is in–and possibly the world.

Let me break this down a little further–when we–those who call themselves Christians–lie on God, we end up with the only possible consequence of our lying–God ignoring us and allows the calamities of our own rebellion to overtake us. God is not mocked nor deceived by lying tongues, but He will allow our lies to make fools of us. Though I have categorically denied that God chose trump to be president of the United States, I have to include myself in the throng of Believers–who didn’t do enough to persuade others that God does not intervene in our choices. He allows us to make the choices and allows us to handle the consequences of our actions.

What I see in the constantly unfolding events in the political arena and the rise of hatred in the land is the result of wickedness and lies promoted by those who claim to know God. Let me say this again (and I’ll probably say it often)–GOD IS PRO-CHOICE! He honors and choices and allows us to deal with the results–in every area of our lives–not just as it pertains to abortion, elections, marriage–but in everything.

When Christian Believers (the Evangelicals who lied) acknowledge that God allows us choices, then perhaps, they can also begin to repent and rescind the notion that trump was God’s choice–unless they are totally blinded by hate and bigotry and want to see the chaos continue.

I’m no more perfect than any other, but I do accept my limitations and acknowledge them. I depend upon my relationship with God to do the right thing at all times, but when I stray, He won’t pull me back unless I submit to His pull. That’s how He operates–with our submission to Him. He does not coerce, bully or bribe us to do anything; nor does He belittle or humiliate us–we do that on our own when we refuse to hear Him and obey.

At all times–we must speak truth whether we agree with truth or not–because truth will set us free from all the stupidity we now see. Truth can and will come through various people–both Republicans and Democrats (Conservatives and Liberals), but we must be open to hearing it and acting upon it or we’ll cease to exist as a nation since truth has surfaced, the Russian interference into our election and the erosion of our democracy was planned years ago. They deliberately established relationships with those who–out of their greed and need for power–were easily influenced and duped into doing their will–not God’s.

All of this is easily discovered with a little time taken to research it, so there is no need for anyone to just take my word for it. Once research is undertaken and truth is known, what should we do with it?

I’ve known the truth all along and have my blogs to verify what I’ve been saying and now I implore all who know truth to assert themselves into the throng of existing chaos and confusion and promote truth–if we don’t change direction soon, we will no longer be the United States of America–a sovereign nation, but under the command of the Russians.

Now, can we honestly answer the question, “Is God talking to us?” Yes, because He is and will continue to speak to us through His Word and through Holy Spirit, if we’re willing to listen. If we don’t listen, we have only ourselves to blame for the calamities that will overwhelm us. As a society of civilized people, we can no longer allow ideologies and emotions to rule us; we must develop critical thinking skills and know how to determine when sources are credible or not–facts and evidence matters. Any news source that promotes hatred of anyone for any reason–is not a credible source of information; it will be biased based upon the hatred they promote. 

Therefore, I beseech every reader to reflect upon their relationship with God and know His truth and make all decisions pertaining to life and living upon that fact–proven through His Word.

In 2020, remember maintaining our democracy will depend upon all those who seek truth and promote it, rather than fuel ideological beliefs that have no foundation in truth according to God’s Word. I’m counting on the wisdom of God to lead us all in turning away the whirlwind that will overtake us if we don’t act. If we actively #resist the devil, and submit to God, we will know victory!

Let’s Hear The Conclusion!

Let’s Hear The Conclusion!

Now all has been heard, here is the conclusion of the matter; Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13,14 NIV

Amazing how for everything that happens under the sun, there is a biblical reference for which we can frame our thoughts.

Comey’s Testimony–My perspective!

Yesterday, I watched James Comey’s testimony with millions of Americans and other countries–after reading his statement because I wanted to hear what the former FBI director had to say.

After reiterating what had already been released, we get insight into Comey’s thoughts and feelings at the time of each of the meetings he had with trump. Considering he was moved, out of “gut instinct” to document the meetings, his testimony “in my mind” proved that Comey was fired because he would not: pledge loyalty to trump or drop an investigation involving Michael Flynn.

Points of contention for some (not me): Why didn’t Comey confront trump about the inappropriateness of meeting with him and his requests and Loretta Lynch wanting Comey to call the Clinton email incident–a “matter” instead of an investigation.

My take–trump’s white house counsel should have briefed trump on what was appropriate or inappropriate. When Comey informed the AG the first time there was a problem, that would have been the AG’s responsibility to speak to trump.

My Take-Aways–Comey told the truth and though he confirmed that he told trump he “was not” the target of an investigation–“while he was the FBI Director” he made it clear that trump is under investigation now–because of what he is doing–false accusations–not anyone else. trump attempted to gain a loyalty pledge from Comey and was not successful and then he attempted to influence Comey into dropping the investigation against Flynn.

Who–if anyone–is lying about the situation? Comey is considered by most to be man of integrity and honor. On the other hand, trump is known to be a pathological liar. Therefore, I conclude that trump is the liar and Comey is the victim in this situation.

The asides–Understanding Republicans would attempt to deflect the focus from trump’s possible obstruction of justice, I was not surprised by the interjections of “but Hillary and her emails.” Not surprised at all by that proclamation and knew without doubt that there would talking points created for the parrots to parrot. There were.

Today, trump’s claim of “total and complete vindication” is both misinformed and ludicrous and further exacerbated by a bumbling, inept attorney who refused to acknowledge the simple fact of what was then to what is now. Kasowitz’s further claim (I’m sure at the behest of trump) that Comey was a liar and a leaker is further confirmation of his ineptness. Enabling a person when they are clearly in the wrong is not helpful to anyone and in fact, will probably result in a greater gap of trust between the public and the WH.

Speaking of the WH–Sarah Huckabee Sander’s proclamation that trump doesn’t lie was so preposterous that I felt sorry for her.  Everyone knows trump lies because his lies are so easily fact-checked. He flip-flops on a matter from day to day, if not, hour to hour. It’s a matter of “PUBLIC RECORD.”

At any rate, trump claims he taped conversations with Comey that will prove Comey a liar. Okay, so let’s hear them. Unless they have hired actors to create the tapes, once again, trump wrote a check his behind can’t cash–there were no tapes or he would have produced them by now. It’s like the proof he had that Obama had wiretapped him–non-existent. And now the claim that Comey is a leaker–is also false–because there was no “privileged communication” or “classified” information “given” to anyone. More lies from the WH.

My conclusion–trump is unfit–temperamentally and intellectually (if we believe Ryan who says, “he’s new, he didn’t know”) to serve America in the position of the Oval Office. If he doesn’t know what the job entails, he shouldn’t be in the role. There are experts around him (hopefully) that should be advising him.

Yes, I get it some voters (not the majority) wanted someone other than a politician in the WH. They got what they wanted and it’s become a nightmare for Americans.  Over 20 million Americans are about to lose their healthcare, consumer protection regulations have been rolled back so corporations can pollute the water and the air, a proposal has been put before Congress to privatize Air Traffic Control–endangering lives of those who fly, and now they’re gutting the Dodd-Frank Act–allowing Wall Street to once again, put Americans in financial jeopardy.

They also got a rigidly conservative Supreme Court Justice who sides with corporations and ignores the rights of individuals, an Attorney General whose known bigoted past is now prevailing in our “so-called justice” system and who has his own problems with Russian Connections. Tax reform has resulted in massive cuts for the rich, not much for the poor and working class.

So, all those who support trump–hope you’re happy–validating the premise that ignorance is bliss. While you continue to thrive in the alt reality framed by delusion, the rest of us–the True Patriots–will continue fighting for all Americans and their constitutional rights.

Watch for all the unfolding events that will change the landscape in America forever.

What Hides Behind Confusion?

What Hides Behind Confusion?

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there is disorder and every evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. James 3:9-18 NIV

What hides behind confusion? If we accept what The Word says, bitter envy and selfish ambition are the root causes of confusion and disorder. Does this explain the situation in the White House?

We know there is a pathological liar in the Oval Office–pretending to govern when he doesn’t have a clue. We know that he suffers from multiple personality disorders and possibly dementia or Alzheimer’s disease–in addition to the cognitive disconnect that has existed for some time. We know that he wants to be the center of attention at all times and will do anything to maintain the focus on him whether it is positive or negative. We know that he will bully and bribe to get his way. We know (at least some of us) that 2016 election results would not have happened if not for the Russian hacking, false propaganda, and complicity encouraged by him with other GOP. We know this and for those who don’t–I suggest having some time alone with God and allowing Him to reveal truth.

The promotion of  false propaganda is continuing through various news outlets–Fox News, Breitbart and the Sinclair group and apparently it’s working in its endeavor to brainwash those who watch them. Considering who owns these companies, it is not a stretch to understand their motives. They want to control what gullible Americans think and do and to promote a false narrative that blinds people to the truth–creating mass confusion for any who dare to think for themselves about what news sources to believe; especially since–the one in the Oval Office–keeps screaming “fake news” about anything that doesn’t show him in a favorable light.

If the FBI probe about Russia and his involvement is a hoax–why make so much noise about it? Why try to get others to lie about it? Why fire an FBI director because of it? Why invite GOP members of Congress–who will serve on the panel to question the former director–to dinner two nights before the former director is scheduled to testify about conversations with him? Is this yet another attempt to obstruct the flow of truth by bribery or bullying–yet again?

Will we see integrity and honor return to Washington any time soon? For the GOP to proclaim to be the party of moral values, I haven’t seen any evidence through their actions in a healthcare bill, their proposed budget, the actions of the Attorney General, rolling back consumer protection policies or much else. I have seen (as have others) all the evidence of a group of people trying to amass wealth at the expense of depriving the poor and needy access to assistance and living a healthy life.

I have more questions than answers pertaining to the status quo in Washington and that may continue to hover over my ability or anyone else’s to ignite change in Washington that will benefit all. Not having the answers right now–won’t keep me from seeking them and developing viable solutions for all Everyday Americans.

Is Our Entire Government Befuddled?

Is Our Entire Government Befuddled?

That fading flower, his glorious beauty, set on the head of a fertile valley, will be like figs ripe before harvest–as soon as people see them and take them in hand, they swallow them.  In that day, the Lord Almighty will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people. He will be a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment, a source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. And these also stagger from beer are befuddled with wine; they reel from beer, they stagger when seeing visions, they stumble when rendering decisions. All the tables are covered with vomit and there is not a spot without filth. Isaiah 28:4-8 NIV

Reflecting upon what is happening in our country and lining it up with The Word, I can see how this passage may speak to the current events.  It would appear that our government–on every level–is befuddled with no one able to think clearly. It’s as though they have been caught sipping the shake of stupidity and are now reeling with the results.

Under normal circumstances–had there been any effort to interfere with an election as broad as the spectrum is with trump–they would have been ousted from any position of authority. But no, our GOP congress has decided to “normalize” the behavior and give him passes to thwart ethics policies by giving people waivers, by not insisting he divulge his taxes, or divesting himself from his business interests, and ignoring the blatant nepotism that exist in giving his daughter and son-in-law access to nation’s secrets.

And now, he’s promoting his wife’s business venture on the White House website. Is there any end to this atrocity? Is everyone on Capitol Hill befuddled beyond recovery to see that this idiot is taking America for a ride for which there may be no return?

We know–Russia was involved with interfering with the 2016 election; we know trump benefitted from that involvement; we know trump owes Russia tons of money; we know trump is not a true Patriot, he’s only in the Oval Office to see how much he can get out of it for himself and his millionaire donors. There is no denying this and all a person has to do is to open their eyes and see.

So, why is Congress not acting upon what they have to see? There is only one viable answer and it is not that they’re giving him a chance to become presidential. It is much more sinister than that. They are profiting from the chaos by passing bills and getting the idiot to sign them when they know he won’t read them. They are profiting by having the power to seemingly get away with murder–literally with their healthcare bill–all in an effort to snub their noses or rather give Obama the finger. There are no adults functioning in the GOP congress–they all act like immature, bullies–determined to make fools of themselves in their quest to defend the indefensible idiotic behavior coming out of the White House. They are drunk with power and fear of being caught with their own ties to Russia being revealed–befuddled–unable to think clearly because they have forgotten that country takes precedence over party.

But this too, can and shall change in the coming months. Since they refuse to stop sipping the shake of stupidity, voters who are not are planning a return to sanity–without the chaos and confusion running rampant by changing the entire landscape of DC from red to blue. Watch for it–people will clearly put country before party and proceed–thinking clearly, no more befuddlement.

I’m one of the many anticipating change by running for something–president of the United States and I’m not drunk on power nor hate-driven, nor frustrated to the point of not thinking clearly. I want this country to maintain its status as a world leader and we can only do that with a world-class leader. It’s time we get back to business and shake off the spirit of stupid and move this country forward.

Deliver Us From Ignorance!

Deliver Us From Ignorance!

And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.  I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls. Joel 2:28-32 NIV

I don’t know about you, but I’m calling on the name the Lord, daily–to deliver us from the ignorance oozing and spreading from the White House and all those who speak on behalf of the toddler-in-chief.

I guess, I may have to just stop listening to the stupidity that his enablers expect people to believe.

Don’t know who his enablers are? Let me see if I make this brief–everyone speaking on his behalf, trying to explain the most recent stupidity. I guess they all signed loyalty pledges and are afraid to speak truth.  We should all ask them why they risk their own credibility trying to defend the indefensible.

Jeffrey Lord, Paris Dennard, Kayleigh McEnany, Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee, Darrell Scott, Jason Miller, Jack Kingston, and only God knows who else is lying on behalf of donald.  They need to simply admit he has limited comprehension skills, is a pathological liar, and suffers from a cognitive disability. It’s just that simple!

Of course, his supporters have long since sold their souls to the devil out of hate-driven agenda to elect him and defend him. I’ve never seen such ignorance in my life and it is appalling because they are committed to the idiot-in-chief.

Okay, I’m not perfect, but I’m not an idiot either. I know and own my limitations and don’t try to confuse or conflate facts with nonsense and twitter rants.

Now, that I’ve got that off my chest, everyone needs to take a serious look at where our country is headed and put aside political angst or even bigotry long enough to see what this idiocy is doing our reputation in the world. Can’t speak for everyone, but I care! I’m guessing all who do care are the real Patriots, not those just running their mouths.

Some things just never change and some people are just to set in their ways to wake up and smell the stench that is polluting the air around us. Incompetence in the White House is never a good idea and we see where that leads–more confusion and chaos–seemingly planned or plotted to redirect focus from upcoming testimonies. Those of us who know where the stench originates are not going to be misled. Our focus is on the truth–however it comes to the forefront.

Just remember, we can always change the landscape by voting blue in special elections and in Mid Terms 2018. I’ll wait my turn in 2020. Just saying!

Nothing To Fear With Him!

Nothing To Fear With Him!

The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23

For those who do not know this Psalm, I encourage you to read, mediate upon it and carry it in your heart throughout your days.

For those do who do know this Psalm–encourage those around you to remain steadfast, moving forward in all God has planned for them, never fearing the enemy.

This is not to make light of all the tragedies around the globe, more specifically the events that have rocked England lately. No matter what we do–as a people–either individually or collectively, unless we’re mind readers we can never know what another is going to do–especially those driven by hate. We can know–we must live our lives to the utmost, doing what we can for those in need of help and support, and defying the expectations of the enemy which are to keep us afraid and impotent.

We have lost–if the news is reported correctly–a tenable candidate for Iowa because of death threats by the opposition. I cannot begin to understand her feelings right now, but I’m praying that she’ll overcome them, seek protection from law enforcement and rise up and win. If she doesn’t fight back, the strategy will be employed by others in order to keep people from opposing them in what is supposed to be a “free and fair election” process.

For that reason, I have to applaud Congresswoman Maxine Waters who refuses to be intimidated by hate and evildoers. She knows the risks and refuses to back down and I’m also praying for her safety and success in accomplishing her mission.

When we know that we are doing what is right, for all the right reasons, we should not be fearful of the evil ones for we are protected by God’s goodness and love. If we show fear–as with dogs who smell fear–the enemy will attack and defeat.

I’ve said before I don’t have enough sense to be afraid of anyone–no matter how big or ugly or how much money they have or the platforms they use to discredit–I will move forward in seeking opportunity to represent Everyday Americans in 2020–and if the opposition wants to start their research now–go for it. I’ve made it easy for them.  Anything they want to know about me can be found online–in a book or in a blog. I have nothing to hide and wouldn’t even if I did. My life is an open-book and I’m just getting started writing the next chapter.

With God going before me, I have nothing to fear–no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and if it is the purpose of God for my life to be the next president of the United States, I shall be. Attempts to try and intimidate me have always made me stronger and more determined than ever to fight harder. We shall see–how The Lord perpetuates victory in every area of our lives.

Get ready for it–a time for real change that matters to real people–is coming soon!

Praying For Safety!

Praying For Safety!

Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race, Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts. May the Lord silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue–those who say, “By our tongues we will prevail; our own lips will defend us–who is lord over us?” “Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan I will now rise,” says the Lord. “I will protect them from those who malign them.” And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times. You, Lord, will keep the needy safe and will protect us forever from the wicked, who freely strut about when what is vile is honored by the human race. Psalm 12 NIV

For all who are participating in the March For Truth and other events around the world–demanding truth, equality and justice for all, I’m praying for your safety. God is with us and He smiles upon all who are fighting to defend the rights of the poor and vulnerable. Unfortunately for those of us in America, with trump in the White House–we are all vulnerable–since he has proven he has no ability for critical thinking or compassion on those who are less fortunate (financially–for he is morally depleted) than he is.

Father in the name of Jesus,

We know You are the same God–yesterday, today and forever. Whatever You did in the past to protect those who valiantly fought for justice and equality in the past, You will continue to do today and in the future. Encourage hearts in the face of evil and remind those marching You are going before them and no weapon lodged against them shall prosper. Strengthen their bodies and renew energy and determination to keep moving forward in Your strength, never wavering or being enticed by evil. Peace be upon everyone who knows The Lord and how to conduct themselves decently and in order. Thank You for hearing and answering prayer, to Your glory. Amen!

Remember the battle is not ours–it is the Lord’s and He shall conquer and we will be victorious in all we do that honors Him.

Be blessed and stay safe. Never allow the provocation of evil to determine your path; laugh in its face and keep it moving.

Looking forward to hearing the excerpts of victory resulting from this day and all those to come until we rid ourselves of the menace in the White House.

While you’re marching, think about the kind of “real change” we need to see in Washington and remember 2020 election is coming.

Now What?

Now What?

Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory because of your love and faithfulness. Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?” Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him, but their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell. They have hands, but cannot feel, feet but cannot walk, nor can they utter a sound with their throats. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them. Psalm 115: 1-8 NIV

Those who praise people more than God and give people greater esteem than they do God, are idolizing the creation, rather than the Creator.

I’m reminded of trump in this passage–he has a mouth that never speaks truth, eyes that cannot see reality through his delusional alternative universe, ears that block out sound, wise advice; he has feet but cannot walk the path of integrity because of his crooked ways, and he utters sounds that are incomprehensible and astounds the world at his mental incompetence and ineptness.

We are in the throes of the beginning of a national crisis because we have allowed an idiot–that very foolish, stupid person–to make decisions for all when they do not have the mental capacity or expertise to do so. He relies upon those who hate and promote false news and lies to give him advice–though he claims to work for the people who voted for him. Here’s the problem–the people who voted for him were only a fraction of the total population and some of them are now seeing the error of their vote.

But trump is really not the problem right now–unless we allow him to continue to be one. The real problem is the complacent and impotent GOP Congress. They have a job to do–upholding their oath of office and they are negligent in doing their job. Pressure has to be brought upon them to honor their oaths of office over any pledges of loyalty to a person. Patriotism does not mean standing by a president; it means doing all one can to preserve the nation–placing priority to country over political party. They need to be reminded over and over again, until they do their job. 202-224-3121 is the Congressional Switchboard number–start calling now.

If they fail to do their job, we can rest assured of continued destruction and erosion of what we once understood a democracy to be. Putin gets his wish and takes over America without firing a shot–all because of an idiot who allowed himself to be put in a position where others have leverage over him. And the collusion–is real and dangerous since it involves the exposure of all in the GOP who have been complicit in the disastrous 2016 election results. They knew then and know now, the price of winning a rigged election will cost them their political careers. They have been duped, willingly.

What do we do now? We call, we email, we fax, we tweet until we get tired, then we rest and start all over–letting Congress know what we think of them and how they should do their jobs. I’m planning to contact at least 20 a day–by one means or another until they take notice and rethink their positions which are all on the line. The other 261 million people will vote for integrity in 2018 and in 2020–removing them from their positions.

I, among many others, will be seeking the opportunity to truly serve all Americans and I know–if Everyday Americans are fed up with the nonsense we see on a daily basis, they will appreciate having someone who understands the challenges they face, making decisions in the White House for all Americans.  Only time will tell if Americans will wake from their daze and see truth and love as a means to accomplish greatness rather than lies and hate. It is up to us, all Americans who care about this planet, to rise and change the narrative so we’ll have a bright future.

Do Good Anyway!

Do Good Anyway!

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech. They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”  Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.. But in your hearts revere Christ as lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. I Peter 3:8-16 NIV

To The Resistance:  Stay strong and don’t fall to the level of the evil ones. We’re smarter than that. We don’t have to use the foul language the “other side” uses, we don’t have to humiliate others when they attempt to belittle us, but we must tell the truth at all cost. And if a person acts like an idiot, we must say so (I don’t know of any polite synonyms for this word). No matter what they say or do–do good anyway!

It is truly sad that we have come to this place in America where we have to face the fact that those 62+ million people created this fiasco we’re experiencing. They did it because of frustration and hatred–acting on pure emotion–without logic or intellect or any justifiable rationale.

I’ve talked about this before so I won’t belabor the point. People please, stop allowing your emotions to dictate your decisions–especially those you can’t just go back and change. When in turmoil because of stirred emotions and upheavals in your life, save the important decision-making for another time when either you or your surroundings have calmed.

I know a thing or two about letting emotions drive decisions. I’ve been there. And I don’t plan to make the same mistakes–over and over again. At some point–we all (including me) need to take a step back and think before we act. And we must think about how every decision we make, impacts our lives and the lives of others for more than the moment it might take to make the decision.

The 2016 election is a perfect case in point–raw emotions–fueled by the frustrations felt of those who felt neglected and by those who feel they are the superior race and are afraid they’re going to become extinct–pushing hate-filled rhetoric and lies brought us to this place. No matter how much they demonstrate hate, I’m going to promote love–and do good anyway.

There is a solution for every problem and His name is Jesus. When we allow Him to guide our every thought and action, we can avoid some of the travesties we face in life. We do not have to trade insult for insult for those who regret their vote, but can’t do anything about it. We do not have to resort to name-calling, just because they do it.  When I call someone an idiot–it is because they have demonstrated a lack of understanding about a situation and refuse to heed sound, wise advice. By definition–according to a dictionary–an idiot is a very foolish or stupid person. Therefore, if I speak truth, I’m not name-calling.  And I can speak truth, gently–in love–doing good anyway.

At any rate, I’ve spent enough time of talking about the WH idiot for today. I’m continuing plans to run for President in 2020 and I can guarantee people, there won’t be an idiot in the WH if I win. I’m wise enough to know what I don’t know and wise enough to seek the assistance and advice of those who do.
