Fired Up!

Fired Up!

Since the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week, I’ve been torn and disgusted that our lawmakers still think, “now is not the time to talk about Common Sense Gun Legislation.” As disgusted and appalled as I’ve been, I have also been encouraged and inspired by the students affected in Parkland, Florida.  They are fired up and ready to fight back on every level.

I’ve listened to their articulate voices, crying foul to the lawmakers who spew a lot of rhetoric and then do nothing.

I’ve seen the lies and false propaganda promoted against these teens by those who attempt to silence and then I’ve watched them: Emma, Cameron, Delaney, Kyle, David and so many others–ignore the stupid and stay focused on their goal–to make sure their voices are heard.

I’ve watched them stand before lawmakers and speak their minds and not back down even when the lawmakers disappointed them.

I watched them during the CNN Town Hall where they were very bold and courageous, fired up and determined to make their voices heard over all the noise of the naysayers and especially, the NRA. They are awesome and instead of the derision and contempt shown to them by Fox News and others, they should be applauded for having the guts to do, what most adults wouldn’t do–stand their ground.

I also watched grieving parents at the “Listening Session” hosted by the White House. I heard a grieving father express just how “pissed off” he was at losing his daughter to gunfire in her school. I also heard his determination to do something–with or without lawmakers or those sitting in the White House.

And then I heard Donald Trump, with a cheat sheet of comments–say, “let’s arm the teachers.” Obviously, he has no clue that obtaining a permit to conceal and carry a “handgun” with military training–would not stop someone with an assault weapon. There is no way to “conceal an assault weapon” to counter an attack by someone with one. Absurd is the mildest adjective I can use in this forum. Others have been far more succinct in their disgust by this suggestion.

The bottom line to the dilemma in this society is this: Republican lawyers are so bound by blood money from the NRA they will never change their stance and enact Common Sense Gun legislation. And we know from what Dana Loesch said last night, NRA is never going to support a ban on any type of weapon nor do they support raising the age limit to 21. Their consistent argument about the 2nd amendment falls hollow when (as it was pointed out last night by two people), the 2nd amendment dealt with the formation of a “militia to protect and defend states,” not as open door for individuals to own any and every type of weapon.  No one needs an assault weapon who is not in the military or law enforcement since their only purpose is to kill people. To use hunting as an excuse for owning an assault weapon is an indicator of someone not knowing that assault weapons “shred the target,” just like they shred human targets.

There is a simple solution–one that does not require any background checks, or increase in mental health care or even any money spent–we simply need to #VoteBlue in every election, removing Republicans from the equation and letting Democrats enact the legislation needed to save children and other innocent victims from dying due to gun violence.

The NRA–and all those who support them and their efforts to put guns in the hands of anyone who wants one–should take the time to pray (since they claim they’re Christians) and seek God–asking Him to show them the truth about themselves–they lack humanity and compassion and are only interested in profiting from the loss of lives.

I’ve stated before that I am a legal, responsible gun owner and I believe in all the rights afforded every person based upon our Constitution, but I also believe we must hold lawmakers accountable for their inaction when they have it within their power to change the course of events, but won’t because of the money they receive from the empire of evil–the NRA.

The parents and students are right–enough is enough–the time is past for thoughts and prayers–bold, courageous action must be taken before the next school shooting or massacre of anyone in any place. It’s time for America to get “Fired Up” and support these teens in their efforts to get the attention of all on Capitol Hill and the White House so they don’t have to see others suffer loss of life. It’s time for every adult–who is a registered voter to contact lawmakers and let their feelings be known about assault weapons and the deaths of innocent people. And when the lawmakers refuse to listen or act–it’s time for Voters to get Fired Up and vote them out of office.

I’m Mary Hall-Rayford and I’m Fired Up and ready to serve all Everyday Americans and to take on the gun lobbyists in Washington. Let’s get it done.

When To Judge?

When To Judge?

The Goldwater Rule Psychiatrists who belong to the American Psychiatric Association are constrained in their public comments by the Goldwater rule, which guides them to speak mostly of diagnostic categories and people in general. (Psychology Today)

Recently, while watching a number of news shows discussing the “mental fitness” of Donald Trump, I was reminded of a couple of things when the news hosts, always qualified what they were saying by invoking the Goldwater Rule, as did other pundits.

Here’s what struck me about people saying, “we can’t diagnose without an examination and an assessment without an examination, is based upon our perceptions of the observations” (or words to that effect). They also acknowledged they were just “lay persons” having the discussion–no expertise in the matter.

Here’s my issue and it’s more “civil responsibilities” in jury selection. To my knowledge–very few people selected for jury duty have any expertise in the matter before them, yet they are expected to listen to attorneys arguing their points, witness testimony, judge’s instructions and make a decision regarding a person’s life or a company’s continued existence. More often than, the people serving on a jury may or may not have a high school diploma, maybe a college degree, but most don’t have medical or legal expertise in matter they’re asked to judge.

If jurors are expected to render a decision in a trial situation without expertise, why can’t news commentators and hosts, render a conclusion about a situation they observe up close and personal on a daily basis? This is extremely curious to me. Most of the journalists who accompany trump or are in the White House on a consistent basis, know exactly what is behavior is and whether or not–he should be deemed, “mentally fit” to be in the Oval Office. After all, none of them are psychiatrists who have to worry about being removed or humiliated by the field of psychiatry.

From my perch–usually from sitting in my recliner (arm-chair psychiatry, I guess), I observe what trump says and does on a fairly regular basis since March 2016. As an educator with a background of special education knowledge, I noticed from the beginning there was something wrong and I stated it on more than one occasion through my blogs here and on Medium. I listened to the speech pattern and knew there was a disconnect between neurotransmitters in his brain. “Through research, we know that mental disorders are brain disorders. Evidence shows that they can be related to changes in the anatomy, physiology, and chemistry of the nervous system. When the brain cannot effectively coordinate the billions of cells in the body, the results can affect many aspects of life” (The National Institute of Mental Health).

What I’ve observed is that his limited vocabulary, inability to clearly enunciate certain words or pronounce them correctly is a clear indication of something not functioning properly. His inability to demonstrate empathy and appropriate responses in specific situations was another indicator that a disconnect exists which is resultant of a malignant narcissistic personality disorder (again, chemical development or lack thereof in the brain). His recent bouts of forgetting where he is (documented on video on at least three different occasions) and struggling for words along with his incessant gestures while “reading a speech” speak volumes about his lack of confidence in his ability.

Now, for those who have read most of my blogs you might think I’m being nasty since I have no respect for him. I’m not being nasty, I’m simply stating my observations which have been discussed by many others. Am I offering a psychiatric opinion? No. I’m concerned that the opinions that have been offered are being ignored simply because he won’t submit to a neurological examination to determine what’s going on inside his brain and those psychiatrists who have offered opinions, haven’t examined him.

My point to all this is–why should jurors determine the conclusion of a matter when they have no expertise when we won’t allow the experts to weigh in on a situation that could be detrimental to our entire society or the world (nuclear codes access)? That seems to be an oxymoronic dichotomy that should be rectified. Will we ever see it? I don’t know, but I’m going to continue to observe and write my conclusions so that if there comes a time that something horrible happens, I’ll have to find a media outlet and scream about the conclusions drawn when no one else–would.

I’m standing my ground as I prepare to make a difference in our society (if we survive a nuclear attack).

Giving Thanks!

Giving Thanks!

Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand. One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. Romans 14:1-7 NIV

Today–encourage all to enjoy the day–giving thanks for all we have, all we didn’t get when we wanted it and for all the miss-steps we’ve taken in life in order for God to get us where we are. I love me–just the way I am–but didn’t always for the way, I used to be. But now, I have a reason to give thanks–daily–the grace of God that has sustained me through trials and wrong directions for over 65 years.

Listen, I’ve been there and done that–facing all the challenges and struggles I know many have and are facing. I know what it’s like to be a single mother raising two children in the depths of the ghetto, always praying for their safety as well as my own.

But I’m a big girl and I learned to take life’s knocks with a spring-back attitude. I never let one failure or disappointment keep me down. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t discouraged from time to time, but I refused to allow discouragement and discontent keep me from my destination even when I wasn’t sure where I was headed.

I had a dream and I put a lot of credence in dreams. For years, I dreamed that I was running through a school, trying to get to class and though I always started out fully dressed in the dream, I always ended up naked–wondering why people were staring at me. When I got a chance to go back to school in my forties, I stopped having the dream. Not only did I complete my BA in Sociology and English, I kept going until I finished a MA in English and Speech and then completed all the coursework for a Ph.D in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in English and Special Education.

During a lay-off in which I didn’t have a full time job for two years, I had an opportunity to really look at where I was headed. I realized that teaching was no longer a viable career and I couldn’t/wouldn’t attempt to encourage anyone to go into a field that did not offer a wage comparable to other professions and one in which very few people respected teachers. When I finished the coursework, I stopped–no longer interested in completing that particular path for it no longer had meaning for me and my passion subsided. Don’t get me wrong–I still love teaching–it is my passion, but I could not look another person in the eye and encourage them to get into that field.

At any rate, I retired and am working seven hours a week–teaching college courses. But then came the 2016 election and Hillary lost (with Russia’s help). I, along with millions of others railed against the rigged election, and started working social media to vent. On the night #TraitorDon launched missiles into Syria just to flex his muscles, I dreamed I had a conversation with him. In the dream, I told him I was running for president and he told me, I couldn’t because I wasn’t qualified. I told him I was more qualified than he was and then I woke up. I was attending a tax march and watching others and listening to their concerns, I reflected upon the dream and here I am, months later, preparing my run for president in 2020.

Not everyone understands what’s driving me to do this–especially since I have no previous political experience–but I have a passion to represent all Everyday Americans and to make sure they have a voice in the White House. People I’ve talked to are more concerned about Republicans digging up dirt than I am. I’m not afraid of any discoveries since my life is outlined on the Internet in various mediums.

No matter what others say, I will not be deterred; especially if Democrats are successful in flipping the House in 2018. If I lose, I lose, but no one will ever say I didn’t try. After all, I’m planning to win and I’ll never know what I can do, unless I try.

I may not be the perfect candidate, but there are none. So, here’s what I have–a desire to serve, considering all and not supporting or promoting any policies that cause harm to people, planet or economy. We do not need to build a wall to keep immigrants out; we need to build relationships that solidify positive forward movement. We need to provide accessible, affordable healthcare to every American. We need to focus our attention on making sure our children have access to a quality, free college education. We need to make sure our senior citizens never have to worry about where or how they’re going to live because of their limited incomes. We need to shore up our justice system so justice is equitable and fair no matter a person’s income, gender or race. We need to secure our standing on the global stage by being #1 again in the eyes of other world leaders and doing all we can to make sure the world can live in peace and we can keep our planet sustaining life, not destroying life.

My ancestors were not immigrants, they were imported to make life better for those who migrated from Europe to live in this land. There are groups of hate-filled, bigoted people who desire to deport every person who is not white in order to “preserve their race” with white privilege. I’m not a hater, don’t understand hate and don’t want to understand hate. But I will not stand by and silently allow any group of people to attempt to silence or denigrate others. I’m a known rebel and I won’t stop when I know there’s something I can do to help others.

If you care to read more about my plans to serve as president of the United States of America, please check out my facebook.com/YesIAm2020 page and let me know what you think. It matters a great deal to me since I want to address those issues that matter to all. Thank you for taking the time to engage in the process of making America truly safe again.

Where Is God In All This?

Where Is God In All This?

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:1-6 NIV

We are indeed living in perilous times when those who claim to be Christians–followers and imitators of Christ–prefer an accused child molester over a man who defends the rights of vulnerable simply because the man is a Democrat. Oh how the Republican party has demonized Democrats simply because the Democrats tend to live more Christ-like than they do.

How can I say that? Let me count the ways:

Democrats are pro-choice. God is pro-choice. He never demands we worship Him; He gives us choice in all we do, never forcing us to do anything and certainly never forcing His will upon us.

Democrats believe in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. They believe people have a right to say what they want, but they don’t have to agree with them. Democrats also believe that every person has a right to worship however they want to worship. Democrats do not believe in promoting hatred and bigotry, but in promoting love and respect of all.

Though there are flawed imperfect people in all walks of life, Democrats will not knowingly choose a sexual molester or predator to govern in any aspect of public office.

Democrats will always choose to support policies that undergird and protect the rights of the poor and needy and vulnerable.

So, where is God is the lives of Republicans who have become so repugnant in the eyes of the world? The jury is still out. The party who once claimed to be the party of morality has sunk beneath the scales of demonic influence into the abyss of hatefulness and bigotry, promoting and applauding those who are morally deficient as evidenced by their behavior and rhetoric; their lack of compassion towards the poor and needy and otherwise vulnerable, and their greed in support of all corrupt, wealthy donors.

Their inability to establish policies that benefit the poor over the rich is staggering in light of the fact that Jesus said we are to take care of the poor and needy, feed the hungry, visit those in prisons, clothe and house those who are homeless. We don’t see that trait in any of the policies promoted by Republicans in their attempt to shut out millions from having affordable healthcare, allow the repeal of regulations that protect consumers, and now overtaxing the poor in order to appease their rich donors. That’s not the love of Christ reigning in their hearts, it’s greed for power and money, which will only lead to their downfall.

Did we forget that our bodies are the temple where the Holy Spirit dwells? If Christ lives within us and we allow Him to guide us, how can anyone ignore the suffering of others–in any capacity? How can we say, “He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives in me,” if we applaud behaviors that are not like Christ?

I guess the real question is not, “Where is God in all this,” but where are we in our walk with Christ that we sit back and say nothing, and some actually approve and applaud, those who are commit acts against children or assault women, indiscriminately? What’s wrong with those who “wear the label” of Christianity? How can we expect anyone to believe we know Christ, when we do the exact opposite of what He would do?

I’m praying for understanding and direction in how to address all the issues that confront us and become a challenge for us to live as Christ would have us live. We are certainly on the wrong path if we think God is going to ignore what we’re doing–in His name!

I readily admit that neither I nor others can control what any individual does, but I can support and promote policies to protect the innocent and deny the perpetrators access to serve in public offices. My stance on public policy will always be, “first do no harm” as I prepare to serve in the White House–governing for all Everyday Americans. God will once again, reign in the Oval Office as befitting the King of Glory, not me.

 

An Open Letter To American Congress

An Open Letter To American Congress

The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers. “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:42-48 NIV

The following originally posted on Medium 11/3/2017

Open Letter To American Congress

Dear Congressional Members:

About the proposed tax cut that Republicans are so excited about — at least the ones who hate the poor — it is absolutely bull crap, designed to benefit the rich and corporations who are big donors to political parties — notice I said — parties — plural!

Let’s face it — the only people who are in position to cover government expenses through tax dollars are those who make the most money. It’s simple math — something anyone should be able to calculate. But since we apparently have some in Congress and the White House who aren’t that good at math (and I’m no expert), let me approach this from another direction.

The United States is already in debt to the tune of trillions of dollars — the result of negligence from the Bush redistribution of Social Security surplus and then starting a war in Iraq. But let’s not quibble over that point — if we start in the red — and keep spending tax dollars on unnecessary expenditures ( i.e., secret service detail for a family of infinite numbers including staffers and golf carts and housing in trump properties, plus the private jets used by cabinet members) all we’re doing is digging a deeper hole. On top of that, we now “reduce” the amount of tax dollars needed to pay “necessary expenditures” (military, federal government operation, etc.) and we expect what to happen — economic growth and a reduction in the deficit? I think not.

It has become obvious to me, and I’m certain millions of others, that those who claim to be Christians have either not read or understood the bible they supposedly know. “For to whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48). Those who have the most consumable income should pay the larger share of the tax revenue for more than one reason, but here’s mine. It is the very wealthy who use their dollars to influence government — through lobbyists and party donations. The poor and middle class, do not have the opportunity to influence election outcomes other than through their vote.

Since the deck is stacked against us economically — those who have the advantage should pay the most. With the current proposal, the tax cuts for the rich will only give them more to use to influence elections and the poor and middle class lose ground since only those in political positions will determine whether we even get to vote (as evidenced with current attempts to suppress the vote through “unnecessary requirements” and gerrymandering). The alleged “Voter Fraud Commission” is actually doing more to commit voter fraud that in finding evidence of fraud already committed.

I’m sure that all of you know this, but I felt the need to reiterate it since it doesn’t appear that in your elected positions, you are actually representing the people who elected you — us — the Americans.

So here’s a suggestion — start caring more about the people who put you in office — not the wealthy donors who obviously care nothing about anyone other than themselves, but the average, Everyday American — who expects you to do the right thing for everyone. How about that! Is it possible that you can do the right thing for all Americans and not just the wealthy donors?

I can imagine if there are people who feel the same way I do, then many of you won’t have a chance to be elected again. We’re real people with real needs and getting an additional $98.00 a month — won’t make much of a difference to enhance our standard of living. You know why? Those big corporations that get the breaks will increase cost of all they produce and the cost of services which will suck the life out of the $98.00 and may cost us more.

I wish for a month, those who think this tax cut will benefit the poor and help the middle class, would try to live off the income they think others can do with ease. And please, don’t try telling us without the corporations no one would benefit — there would be no corporations if the lowly didn’t work for the them — without getting equitable wages — leaving the corporations to profit and give big bonuses for those who do nothing but sit at desks and think about how they can make their employees more miserable, while lining their own bank accounts. I know, I know — too simplistic for those who think they have “great brains,” but true.

Try this on for size and see if it won’t work for the benefit of everyone:

With this plan those at the lowest end of the income scale will have money to consume the products and services available without being burdened with unfair tax liability. After all, if corporations are producing goods and services and no one can purchase them, how long before the corporations fold? This plan — considers all Americans and puts the burden where it needs to be. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than what we’re seeing with the GOP tax cuts which do nothing for the poor, elderly, and vulnerable. It’s worth consideration and I’m sure — the average Everyday American will see some merit in establishing.

Think about this proposal — where everyone benefits — and about the simplicity of its use. Then, think about this — anyone who manufactures products outside of the United States, hides money in off-shore accounts, or won’t produce their tax returns as an elected official — should not have any input into what others pay who are “loyal” to the American way of life. If you can’t see this — you’re guilty of taxing people without representation because the current plan — is not beneficial to those who elected you (excluding the Russians and other foreign operatives).

Sincerely,

Mary M. Hall-Rayford

Serving all Everyday Americans

 

The Lord In The Midst

The Lord In The Midst

A psalm of David. 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 NIV

It is The Lord who should be guiding us in all we do, not a man or a woman–those who are mere mortals.

It is The Lord who gives us courage to do all we need to do or say.

It is The Lord who strengthens us to stand against the evil that so easily pervades a nation.

It is The Lord who has determined that goodness and love will follow us all the days of our lives.

It is The Lord who speaks through us when we speak truth to power for He is truth.

It is The Lord who gave Himself as a sacrifice for all mankind–not any man or woman–those mere mortals.

It is The Lord who will save us and not us in the midst of all the foolishness and chaos.

It is The Lord who walks with us and talks with us when no one else is around, guiding us to His Word.

It is The Lord who will ultimately see all the wrong righted and the evil defeated by whatever name it sows discord.

It is The Lord who will determine our eternal resting place–be it heaven or the lake of fire–based upon what we do, not what others do.

It is The Lord who will guide all who have a heart to hear Him and obey.

When The Lord is in the midst of our plans, He will bring it to pass.

Who is The Lord? He is the God of Heaven, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit walking in lockstep, watching all we do, hearing all we say, and loving us no matter what, yet correcting us when we disobey or miss the path He has designed for us.

The Lord is truth and light and there is no darkness in Him.

The Lord abhors lies and liars and has prepared the lake of fire for all who lie.

The Lord does not force His Will upon anyone, but allows us choice in all we do.

The Lord loves and imparts His love upon all who will receive, never allowing the darkness of hate to enter into His heart or ours.

In Him, we find all we need to inspire us to greatness and in doing great things, yet keeping us humble and our focus on Him. In Him, we have a shelter and haven from all the sick minds that promote hatred out of their own bitterness and anger. In Him, we find a gathering place where neither gender or skin tones matter. In Him, is our hope for peace on earth and eternal rest with Him.

I cast all my cares upon Him and I lean upon Him for guidance in my life for next three years and beyond as I journey into the political arena. I’m trusting Him to keep my integrity intact, my honor exposed for all to see and the love in my heart overflowing onto every Everyday American with whom I come into contact. He has promised in His Word that when we delight in Him, He gives us the desires of our hearts and I desire to serve all Americans with respect and dignity and to maintain the office of the presidency with all the sanctity it deserves. This I declare by Him who is Holy and all-knowing!

Raising The Standards

 

When The Lord Delights In Us!

When The Lord Delights In Us!

I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies.

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:1-3; 16-19 NIV

With all of the craziness going on around us, we must take a moment or longer to think about who really loves and in whom we can truly trust. My hope is in Jesus and I know when I do what He would have me do, He’s delighted in me and I will have all He has promised in His Word. Since He is not a respecter of persons, whatever He has promised me and will do for me–He will do for others.

So take heart! We have not been forgotten by The Lord even though things seem out of kilter in the world. There is chaos and confusion, we cannot deny, but when we know the Lord, we know the origin of the chaos and it is Satan, for the Word says, “God is not the author of confusion,” and that “all things should be done decently and in order.” No many how many pseudo-Christians try to tell us that God chose trump, we can see this is a lie by aligning his actions with the Word of God.

God hates liars and has prepared the lake of fire for liars. Sound like anyone we know? Let’s look at recent proclamations!

fake IQ certificate

Notice the signature–his–and the date–October 5th 2017–fabricated to counter the notion that he’s a moron. Creating this fake certificate actually confirms that he is–indeed a chronic moron who thinks those with a functioning brain would ever buy into his nonsense. Oh wait–some did and lost millions of dollars behind his fake Trump University. I can imagine anyone who stayed long enough probably received a similar fake certificate of completion. His actions make me wonder if he actually completed a degree as he claims. Nothing else he says is true so it makes me wonder. No transcript or degree has been produced so we only have his word for it–like Forbes only has his word about his “self-proclaimed wealth.”

IQ Test Ranges

Then, when he lies and the lies are exposed, all his spokespersons–those enabling his lies and pathetic behavior, love to spin it into something it never was. His claim of having a higher IQ than Tillerson or anyone else is a lie and the above chart reveals he has no clue as to how an IQ test is ranked or its significance–which many don’t believe.

spining lies

What’s really sad is Sarah Huckabee Sanders role as press secretary who lies without blinking and yet claims to be such a righteous Christian and does not understand that her lies will reserve her place in the lake.

When insecurities rule a person because of fragile egos and multiple personality disorders, there is no truth told and everything trump is to bring him validation, not to unify a country. He is as most have already determined–a narcissistic megalomaniac pathological liar and only cares about what he wants or what makes him look good. He’ll fabricate things just to make him look more important than he is and we know the Word says, “we ought not to think more highly of ourselves than we are.” He proclaimed Columbus Day, Columbus Day like it wasn’t already on the calendar just so he could say–he did it. I’m not sure he realizes that all of the holidays and special days are already noted on most calendars and have been for years.  If he was really mindful and a “Christian” as some purport, he’d know that his deeds speak volumes and expose his lies.

He says he’s not a racist: He called the Black football players in the NFL SOBs (they were the only ones kneeling when he made this remark), but called white supremacists, “very fine people.” He has made the issue of the NFL players kneeling about disrespecting the flag, country, and anthem because he refuses to address the racial injustices that exist in many police districts–which is the reason for the kneeling. The fact that he’s now bullying the NFL and denigrating anyone who openly criticizes reveals his desire to be a dictator, not a president. He has yet to demonstrate understanding of the Constitution’s 1st Amendment rights–for others–while he says whatever comes out of out of his dark soul.

His spokespeople claim (Kellyanne specifically) that he’s, “compassionate and cares about others.” Would a compassionate person bring up past debts to those on an decimated island or throw paper towels to the residents? Would a compassionate person care more about the crowd size when he shows up to assess storm damage? Would a compassionate person ignore the deaths of four Green Berets and say nothing about their deaths or service to this country? I could say more, but what’s the point? Those who choose to believe his lies will and those of us who know better, will never believe anything he says.

Whenever I see a lie by trump or his spokespersons, I address it on Twitter and FaceBook his favorite means of communication, and I will continue to speak truth to power whether he or his parrots acknowledge it or not. That is the job of every Christian to speak truth, no matter what, dispelling lies spoken by those serving Satan.

If we want to see integrity and honor move back into the White House, I encourage all who read this post to check me out on facebook.com/YesIAm2020 and see what I bring to the table that will benefit all Everyday Americans. The 2020 Election is not that far away and plans must be solidified now. Thanks for the considering supporting my bid for president. I know when Jesus delights in me–I shall have what I say I shall have. For the Word says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of our heart.”
