White Privilege in America!

White Privilege in America!

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:2-5 NIV

When I first heard this term, I admit it didn’t make sense for it to have a negative connotation considering who has access to White Privilege. I still don’t understand the angst that White people have against those who either seldom or never had — access to what they’ve always had. If anyone should be angry, it’s people of color who have been denied, denied, denied — access to equal education, housing, and use of necessary facilities, hotels and restaurants. Before anyone gets fired up by what I just said — keep reading. If you’ve ever experienced what is said, please feel free to comment. If you haven’t — try walking in our shoes before complaining about what you don’t have, when you’ve had it all along.

Does anyone remember when white people in America were held in bondage — shackled and forbidden to travel from place to place without a note from their “master?”

Does anyone remember when white people in America were forced to work in unbearable heat, whipped, beaten and killed if they looked a white man/woman in the eyes?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had their babies yanked from their arms and sold into slavery?

Does anyone remember when white people in America where denied the opportunity to learn to read and if they did, were beaten for the attempt?

Does anyone remember when white people in America were kept segregated in cities and denied home-ownership or land ownership?

Does anyone remember when white people in America were kept from receiving a quality education in public schools — having to use — discarded used textbooks?

Does anyone remember when white people in America when traveling, had to take their own food and drinks with them and use “nature” for a bathroom because they weren’t allowed to use the facilities?

Does anyone remember when white people in America could entertain in local establishments but couldn’t sleep in the hotel where they were entertaining?

Does anyone remember when white people in America could only be buried in certain cemeteries because of the color of their skin?

Does anyone remember when white people in America were dragged out of their houses and lynched or tarred and feathered because of lies told by others?

Does anyone remember when white people in America were spit on, set on fire, or had to stand in line in a store and just wait — until someone decided to serve them?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had a local store where they could only buy rotten, spoiled meat and didn’t dare complain about it?

Does anyone remember when white people in America were only expected to clean for others and barely earn a living wage?

Does anyone remember when white people in America were denied a college education when it was affordable and they proved themselves worth it?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had to fight for the right to be considered human beings and treated as such?

Does anyone remember when white people in America couldn’t walk on the sidewalks if a person of color was walking down the same sidewalk?

Does anyone remember when white people in America couldn’t look at a person of color without being beaten and arrested for doing so?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had to sit in the back of a bus, couldn’t eat in the dining car of a train, and didn’t dare sit if a person of color was standing?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had to train their sons to not look at a police officer if stopped while driving white?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had to warn their daughters about the hazards of life while living white?

Does anyone remember when white people in America had their sons shot down like dogs and accused of doing all manner of illegal activity — especially if they were wearing a hoodie?

This list could go on and on, but the point is clear — White People in America — no matter what their background — have always had access to all things Black people did not from the beginning. And now, since Black people have proven themselves worthy and capable and doing all things they were denied or kept from doing, while Black; the White folks who didn’t take advantage of everything they had access to are crying foul and seem think that Black folks are infringing upon their White Privilege.

All the haters in the “White Lives Matter” movement which are really racists bigots — need to get over themselves. If you are not where you wanted to be in life — it’s because you didn’t want to do what was needed to get there. Stop blaming Black People for your insecurities, lack of education, or poverty. You are your own worst enemies. You had more opportunity than most will ever have, but you chose to squander the opportunity just to have a chance to complain and blame.

Don’t get me wrong — I have nothing against White People any more than I do against Black People — I can’t stand stupid no matter what color it comes in. What I hate is people blaming others for their inability to see what is right in front of them. Life may not be fair (and hasn’t been for most Black families), but it is what we make it.

So stop blaming the Black folks, White Lives Matter and realize you haven’t gotten anywhere because you didn’t want to go anywhere. You had open doors of access while most Black folks had to build the wall in which to place the door and prove they were worthy to walk through it.

If you’d rather march and complain and blame — that’s your business. What you should have been doing from the time you could was to go to school and learn something other than hate. It’s not our fault your ignorance rises above your heads every time you open your mouths. The fault is not ours that we know how to protest racial injustice and we can document it all, yet move on and become “the people you want to become” but are afraid of making the effort. It’s so much easier to hate and blame than try and achieve — we get it. Now you get this — you can scream blood and soil until your vocal cords dry up; you can think deportation until the mountains fall into the seas, but you’ll never be able to understand what it means to say, “I’m Black and I’m Proud” and we’re not going anywhere.

After all, if anyone should leave the shores of America, it should be those who came here from Europe, killed off the Native Inhabitants who helped them to survive here, and then were too lazy to cultivate the land and too cheap to pay for the labor, so they went to Africa (we didn’t come on our own) and bought slaves, forced them to work the land and bear the babies of the slave masters who wanted to increase their slaves without paying for more, and now have the nerve to be angry with us!

The haters claim they want a pure white race? Their ancestors should have thought about that before raping their black slaves. The “impurity” is all on them! I’d suggest that everyone involved in “White Lives Matter” have their DNA checked. They just might be surprised by the DNA they carry within and having carried all this hate against themselves.

As long as there are people who think they are superior to others, everyone in America will have problems getting along with one another, but that can change and it should change now. None of us is superior — we all bleed red when sliced open and we all belong to the same race — the human race! Now, how about that — for privilege!

Only Republicans Matter Now?

Only Republicans Matter Now?

Has anyone noticed that Americans have all become Republicans? You missed that phenomena, too, huh? Pay attention to the rhetoric that comes from the GOP, the White House Administration and of course, trump. They really believe they have a mandate from America because of the election rigging and illegitimate win — across the board for Republicans.

Almost every sentence starts with — “Americans have given us a mandate” or a version thereof. “He’s being given a mandate,” Kellyanne Conway told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.” “And that mandate is going to be somewhat different than what we’ve had, it’s a repudiation of some of the things we’ve had.” [Hate reigns in the hearts of trump and his enablers]

KATIE PAVLICH: The Republicans now have a mandate. We have a Republican in the White House. We have a Republican-controlled Senate and Republican-controlled House. We have had divided government for a long time and as Paul Ryan said today they have a lot of good ideas on the table that they’ve been trying to get through that were obstructed by Harry Reid for years that they now are going to be able to push through as a result of this election. [Fox News, Special Report, 11/9/16] [Isn’t our democracy supposed to represent all the people and the “divided government” acting as a check and balance so all benefit? When one group makes all the decisions without any consideration for others — it becomes a dictatorship, not a democracy.]

Now, it would appear that because of the election rigging and the electoral college bribery, that Republicans are determined to only govern — Republicans. None of their policies or agendas have taken into consideration the rest of America — just what 62M angry, misled, and hate-filled people decided (many of whom now regret their decision). A mandate — normally entails what the majority have determined — but the 2016 election was anything but normal and it would appear that we are far from becoming normal again, any time soon.

But let’s look at the actual facts (numbers don’t lie unless manipulated by those who skipped their math classes).

american-mandate

Now, let’s not forget that Hillary won the popular vote by 3M votes — and because trump hates to lose — he’s sold a bill of goods to the gullible by promoting the notion that the 3M votes were cast by illegal immigrants — a fact that has been debunked, repeatedly but the gullible will believe a lie much quicker than the truth when it suits them. And the gullible — those who will swallow anything because they don’t like to research information and have limited critical thinking skills — keep promoting all the lies and false propaganda engineered by the Russian regime with an assist from the GOP. Their win — is not a legitimate win and will be proven so in the very near future, but that won’t stop them from destroying America — under the pretense of doing what’s best for Republicans.

Let me see, now. Do Republicans not want to save the planet for their descendants? Do Republicans care about not having clean water to drink or are they okay with the toxic run-off from coal mines and industrial complexes poisoning the water? Do they care about the rollback of consumer protections and rampant repeal of regulations that keep not just Republican children safe, but all children who eat produce covered and embedded with chemicals that will eventually, lead to their deaths? Do Republicans not understand the ramifications and eventual consequences of a nuclear war? Do they not know that radioactive fall-out won’t ask for a voter’s registration to determine who it will kill or where victims will be located? Are all Republicans part of the 1% that tax cuts will benefit or is it just the 200 families that will hold all the wealth and the rest of us — well, we’ll eventually die out and who will be left to work for the 200 families? Will they plant gardens, work in factories, man phone-lines, create all they need to subsist or are they setting themselves up to die as well?

No matter how much money or wealth a person may have, if the land (and water) is toxic and nothing grows — all will perish. I wonder — have they given this a lot of thought or are their actions — merely reactions to their hatred of Obama? Considering the fact that Republicans were supposed to be the party of “family values/morals” it is difficult to believe any of them are Christians since they have no love for anyone other than themselves. Apparently, they do not understand that Christ promoted love for all, not just the Republicans. I don’t think they’ve given this the time needed to come to a logical conclusion. Whatever happens to the Democrats they hate so much, will also impact the Republicans since we all live on the same planet in the same country.

Getting back to this so-called mandate — if we consider a mandate being what the majority want — the mandate would be for Hillary to be in the Oval Office, making decisions for the benefit of all Americans — not just the Democrat party. Therein lies the real difference — Democrats govern for all the people, Republicans — just them and those who praise them and support them. Some how, that doesn’t sound like a true democracy; it sounds more like an authoritarian take-over in which only one group — the Republicans in this situation — govern for just their group and the rest of us — “be damned.”

The prevailing attitude of the GOP leadership and trump makes it even more important that Americans Vote Blue in the coming elections so All Americans will have a chance to survive. Democrats — in recent history — have been the only party that considers what is best for all Americans and not just other Democrats or those who support them. Therefore, we must use our collective voting rights to turn this situation around so all can sleep at night — knowing there will be a new morning in which we can all enjoy living in America.

America Votes

Raising The Standards

We need to put in a place — an elected person who will govern for all — reaching across the aisle of Congress to make the best decisions for all and who is not afraid of a challenge, and has a heart filled with love, not hate. We can make it happen, by remembering that we are all in this thing called life — together. The decisions made that affect one group, will affect all Americans. Let’s do this — We can raise the standards for all Americans and do it with love, not hate guiding all we do!

 

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

 

Strength To Endure!

Strength To Endure!

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.  He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.  I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. You armed me with strength for battle; you humbled my adversaries before me. You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes. They cried for help, but there was no one to save them— to the LORD, but he did not answer. I beat them as fine as windblown dust; I trampled them like mud in the streets. You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations. People I did not know now serve me, foreigners cower before me; as soon as they hear of me, they obey me. They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds. The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! Psalm 18:32-46 NIV

Though the days seem long and wearisome, and the nights a never-ending gloom of sadness and nightmares, though the idiocy never seems to find itself an end, though those in positions of authority continually abdicate their responsibilities, though it seems like nothing will ever change for the better, we yet have hope and our hope is in God–who strengthens us, not in a person who does not know God.

The leadership in this country–in the executive branch and the legislative branch have severely and negatively impacted the lives of all who live in America. The office of the presidency has forever been marred by the vile and despicable behavior of the one who currently resides in the Oval Office. The legislative branch has become a laughingstock because they lack a spine and will to do what’s right for all Americans. They are bogged down with stupidity, greed and corruption. They are blind to the needs of those who elected them in their pursuit for greatness and grappling to control. Both in the House and Senate, the leadership is more concerned with obtaining a political win for the orange maggot than in legislating to meet the needs of their constituents. On a daily basis, we see the inevitable decay and downfall of a nation, once revered, now the butt of jokes on a global level.

For those of us who are watching, intently, every move, every nuanced communication via social media platforms, and mainstream media–we see and we know that our only hope is in the One who created all things and without Him, nothing was ever created. Though it would appear that the horror many are facing on a daily basis will never end, it will. Though it would appear that no one cares about those in crisis, there are. Though it appears that Russian meddling will continue to infiltrate and negatively influence our election results, they won’t–unless we let them.

We have the strength to endure the onslaught of madness and corruption when we seek God for all we need and for wisdom from on high. If we start paying attention–to the details and facts–not the false propaganda, we will prevail, and rise to the occasion stronger than ever to fight back–against the tyranny that is attempting to overtake our democratic republic. We must arm ourselves with factual information in order to make wise decisions. We must refute the liars and promoters of false propaganda when they raise their ugly heads. We must call a lie a lie and a liar, a liar. We must stop sugar-coating and soft peddling truth when hard, unadulterated truth is needed for the survival of our nation. Above all, we must be willing to see truth and acknowledge when we’re wrong and adjust our thinking so we won’t fall for the lies promoted by those who wish to desecrate our nation.

Love trumps hate any day of the week–and for centuries to come. We give up our freedoms to choose our paths when we allow authoritarians to persuade us we need to be controlled and manipulated. It is hatred that drives manipulation and love that encourages freedom of thought and choices. We cannot allow ourselves to be deceived by the enemy who roams the country, pretending to be Christian, when they are actually soldiers of Satan and we know because of the lies they tell.

We no longer have time to sit idly by and watch the destruction of a nation. We must rise up with truth and love guiding our every step, as we battle the enemy that promotes lies and spread hatred. If we are who we say we are, we will not promote hatred of any person regardless of their ethnicity, gender, or faith. We will lift up all with love and compassion, meeting the needs wherever we can so all will know–we’re never alone and that God is our strength.

2018 midterm election is coming up soon and if we really want to see our country headed in the right direction, we must elect lawmakers who will legislate for the benefit of their constituents, not their egos or bank accounts. When the House is righted, then we can concentrate on electing a president in 2020, who will govern for all Americans, not just some. We need a compassionate, empathic, wise leader governing from the Oval Office and though there are many choices, there is one who knows the challenges and struggles of the Everyday American.

Time To Refocus!

Time To Refocus!

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV

It’s time for all of us (especially me) to refocus our attention on all that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely admirable, excellent and praiseworthy–and close the door (at least for a moment) on all the ugliness, hate and bigotry that surrounds us on a regular basis.

What is true–is that none of us–individually can do much to change the unfolding events that will inevitably impact our lives in a negative way. But is also true is that together, collectively, we can stand up and speak out against hatred and bigotry and be heard. It is also true that on a daily basis, I am speaking out against injustice and the idiocy and making it known that I am planning a bid for the White House as the next president.

What is noble in my running for president? I already know how the odds stack against me–an older Black woman. I know this is true because a number of Americans chose to believe the lies and false propaganda promoted about an older White woman, who was the most qualified person on the planet to serve and govern in the White House. My running for president is noble because even though I know the odds against my winning, I am determined to seek the position so that I can help raise the standards for all Everyday Americans and I’m not afraid of adversity, animosity, or facing downing the liars and hypocrites that will come floating to the surface of reality to rail against me. I know it’s coming and I’m ready–feet firmly placed for balance and I will not be moved by bigotry.

What is right about my running for president is the fact that many people have said they are tired of old White men, career politicians, and the rich and famous trying to govern when their purposes are self-serving. I am not a career politician and in fact–just made up my mind to get “politically active” earlier this year during a tax day march. I know the struggles and challenges that face Everyday Americans because I’ve lived them. I could enumerate them here, but I’d rather wait and do them in another forum, preferably an interview so all can hear at one  time. I’ve raised children by myself; I’ve held minimum wage jobs; I’ve wondered how we were going to make it from payday to payday; I’ve been out of work through no fault of my own but because of the negligence of a drunk driver; I’ve suffered the loss of my mother, father, stepmother, stepfather, brothers in close proximity. I’m a grandmother raising my oldest grandson, and in the midst of all that, I decided at 48 years-old to go back to school and complete a Bachelor’s degree and kept going.

I’ve had ups and downs and certainly I would never say that I’m a perfect person, but I can say I serve a perfect God who loves me enough to chastise me when I’m headed in the wrong direction and I hear him and obey. It is because of His love that He came in the person of sinful flesh to save me and all others who are willing to receive Him that I can move forward with confidence.

What is pure about my running for president? I have no ulterior motives in seeking the position other than to help all. I have no goals of obtaining wealth through nefarious means, or abuse of power or status. I have no plans to install friends or family who are not qualified for roles of authority. I don’t plan to become a career politician; my only goal is to help steer America back on the track to having the respect of the rest of the world and its leaders. I know my limitations and know how to seek those who know more than I know. I have not need for pride and ego to interfere with ability to serve the needs of all because I’ve never allowed pride and ego to drive my decision-making. I am–Holy Spirit-guided in all I do and I am not ashamed of that fact. I know how to love unconditionally and have no room in my heart for hatred of anyone. I can love with the purity of God the way He loves me.

What is lovely about my running for president? I have no need to put up a front about anything. Anything anyone wants to know about me can be found online simply by typing in my name on any search engine and see a variety of pictures of me and I have it on good authority (my children mostly) that I am a lovely person–inside and out.

What is admirable about my running for president? There is nothing hidden about me and I’m ready to stand up to the scrutiny I know is coming. I’m not afraid of background checks, mental evaluations or financial inspections. I understand the role of government and know that nothing is ever easy, but with cooperation by all–we can solve some of our problems and show the world that we are indeed–the United States of America, not the divided house of horrors.

Whether there is anything excellent or praiseworthy about my running for president has yet to be revealed. No leader is any better than those who support them. If I can find those who support me who are Talented, have Integrity, are Enthusiastic, and have Strategies to win an election, we’ll be a great team. When people meeting that criteria come together, it will indeed be an excellent opportunity for all to work together for a common cause–in Raising the Standards for all Everyday Americans and we’ll leave others to determine the level of praiseworthiness when they reap the benefits of the work we accomplish.

So, yes–it’s time for all to refocus our attention. We have elections to win–all the special elections, the Midterm elections and the General election in which I hope to be the next resident in the White House. Are you with me? Check out the information already available on http://www.facebook.com/YesIAm2020 to see if your concerns are addressed, and if not, please let me know what your concerns are so I can address them. Together we can do this and all will rise!

 

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.”

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:9-14 NIV

Taking Paul’s words to the church at Colosse literally makes a difference in how we need to approach this time in which we live. We must believe that prayers have and will continue to go forth on our behalf as the world watches the chaos in the WH that embroils our lives on a daily basis. Our hope must continually be in God and in the wisdom He will pour out on all who are willing to receive and accept it. For that reason, many of us are praying that Bob Mueller is willing to receive God’s wisdom and act upon accordingly. America deserves much better than what we are experiencing as a nation with a fake leader in the Oval Office.

Though some may have thought with my posts lately that I’ve given up on our God, nothing could be further from the truth. My hope–is continually in He who inspires and encourages my daily walk. I look to Him to keep my tongue from going to far and my fingers from tapping out words that can be erased or retrieved before impacting those who see them. It’s been an extremely difficult week for me to relinquish my thoughts and fingers to Holy Spirit. It is only because of Him that I have not unleashed a tirade so great that would make the devil blush. It is because of Him who I strive to please that I have not been totally “unpolitically correct.”

Does my awareness of how words can negatively impact perception and perspective as to who I am matter? Of course it does! Words matter–whether coming from me or anyone else and unfortunately, that concept hasn’t been able to breach the brains of the moron-in-chief. I’m not the only one who questions the WH idiot’s ability to do anything other than bully and bluster his way around people.

He demonstrated his total ineptness at being empathic and a consoler-in-chief, but highlighted his insensitivity to others on a much greater scale than I thought possible. And to top off the week of foolishness and stupidity, he alludes to starting a war with North Korea after throwing Rex Tillerson under the bus. Reading a number of articles released by those in the media who are close to those in the White House, it was not surprising to hear that more than one of cabinet members have called him a moron because he has no knowledge of what he’s supposed to be doing and resents anyone trying to guide him. For if–for any reason–he chose to be grateful to those who are at least trying to guide him, he’d have to admit he doesn’t have a great brain, he doesn’t have the best words, and he certainly doesn’t have an IQ of 203 which he apparently tried to convince staffers that he has. If his IQ was 23, that would be a surprise.

But I digress. It is through reading The Word and being reminded of God’s great love for us that renews my hope on a daily basis, and when I think I’ve reached the end of my rope, The Word helps me to make the knot bigger so I will have the patience I need to keep holding on–for the rescue I believe is coming in the revelation of truth provided by Special Counsel Bob Mueller. For every time the moron opens his mouth, a knot forms in my stomach, but I’m moving the knot from my stomach to the rope of hope from which we’re all dangling since we never know what might come next. Pretty soon, the knot will be wide enough to hold a multitude of people and our hope–strengthens the rope–with each new knot. In our patience–holding onto the rope, resting on the knot–we possess our souls and we will not surrender our souls to the evil that abounds from the White House and the GOP or any other demonic influence.

While I wait for the hope of truth setting us all free to be Americans again–I’m still planning a bid for the White House and I pray, that those who review the information on my Face Book page, will find the evidence needed to prove, I am ready and willing to serve all Everyday Americans.
