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!

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.

The Need of Esthers!

The Need of Esthers!

That same day King Xerxes gave Queen Esther the estate of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. And Mordecai came into the presence of the king, for Esther had told how he was related to her.The king took off his signet ring, which he had reclaimed from Haman, and presented it to Mordecai. And Esther appointed him over Haman’s estate.Esther again pleaded with the king, falling at his feet and weeping. She begged him to put an end to the evil plan of Haman the Agagite, which he had devised against the Jews.Then the king extended the gold scepter to Esther and she arose and stood before him. “If it pleases the king,” she said, “and if he regards me with favor and thinks it the right thing to do, and if he is pleased with me, let an order be written overruling the dispatches that Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, devised and wrote to destroy the Jews in all the king’s provinces.For how can I bear to see disaster fall on my people? How can I bear to see the destruction of my family?” King Xerxes replied to Queen Esther and to Mordecai the Jew, “Because Haman attacked the Jews, I have given his estate to Esther, and they have impaled him on the pole he set up. Now write another decree in the king’s name in behalf of the Jews as seems best to you, and seal it with the king’s signet ring—for no document written in the king’s name and sealed with his ring can be revoked.”At once the royal secretaries were summoned—on the twenty-third day of the third month, the month of Sivan. They wrote out all Mordecai’s orders to the Jews, and to the satraps, governors and nobles of the 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush. These orders were written in the script of each province and the language of each people and also to the Jews in their own script and language.Mordecai wrote in the name of King Xerxes, sealed the dispatches with the king’s signet ring, and sent them by mounted couriers, who rode fast horses especially bred for the king.The king’s edict granted the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves; to destroy, kill and annihilate the armed men of any nationality or province who might attack them and their women and children, and to plunder the property of their enemies.The day appointed for the Jews to do this in all the provinces of King Xerxes was the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar. A copy of the text of the edict was to be issued as law in every province and made known to the people of every nationality so that the Jews would be ready on that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. The couriers, riding the royal horses, went out, spurred on by the king’s command, and the edict was issued in the citadel of Susa. When Mordecai left the king’s presence, he was wearing royal garments of blue and white, a large crown of gold and a purple robe of fine linen. And the city of Susa held a joyous celebration. For the Jews it was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor.In every province and in every city to which the edict of the king came, there was joy and gladness among the Jews, with feasting and celebrating. And many people of other nationalities became Jews because fear of the Jews had seized them. Esther 8 NIV

There is a spirit of Esther residing in the land–through the many who are boldly standing up and opposing injustices towards all and we need more–Esthers (whether male or female) to stand against the evil emanating from the White House.

In order for their to be true peace in the world, the world must stand together against evil where it finds it and that’s not just against North Korea, China or Russia or even ISIS. For the evil we must first fight starts in America–against those who plot evil against all Americans with their limited views and perspectives of life because of their hatred of others. “Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.” Proverbs 10:6 NIV

When the head of anything is rotten or evil, only the stench of being rotten will flow downward which explains all the “rotten” we see and smell in the White House. And the one who could have been an “Esther” won’t even dwell in the presence of evil. Since there is so little respect for his wife, he probably wouldn’t pay attention to an appeal from her anyway.

Now it is up to all who know the story–or are least willing to read it in its entirety–to rise up and sound the alarm, making sure all know the drill to get ready to fight back and know victory in the Name of Jesus!

The edict has been written and promoted for all to see and a date has been set for the evil to strike at the hearts of all who know compassion and love and we are ready to fight back–and totally decimate the evil that dares to approach those who belong to God (in deed and not just words) so that our victory will be heard and felt around the globe–we #TheResistance and we will never give in or cave to the dictates of evil.

Our Hope In The Lord, Not Impotent GOP!

Our Hope In The Lord, Not Impotent GOP!

For I hear many whispering, “Terror on every side!” They conspire against me and plot to take my life. But I trust in you, LORD; I say, “You are my God.”My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love. Let me not be put to shame, LORD, for I have cried out to you; but let the wicked be put to shame and be silent in the realm of the dead. Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you. In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.Praise be to the LORD, for he showed me the wonders of his love when I was in a city under siege. In my alarm I said, “I am cut off from your sight!” Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help.Love the LORD, all his faithful people! The LORD preserves those who are true to him, but the proud he pays back in full. Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD. Psalm 31:13-24 NIV

If we take off the rose-colored glasses and blinders and seek The Lord, we would understand why putting any hope in a delusional reality television celebrity was a waste of time, but could cost the United States dearly.

The uproar heard this weekend is enough to create in the heart of the sane, reasonable doubt about what 2016 Election really means. Across the nation, wherever the impotent GOP went, the outrage was heard and more felt by the constituents of those who refused to hear them. They lied by purporting falsehoods and propaganda–again–which is what caused reasonable people to believe the lies spewed.

There is no death panel anyone past the age of 74 will face. There is no need to use intimidation and fear as a tactic to keep senior citizens compliant–we proved it won’t work. There is no need for anyone to think they speak for all women, when all women made their voices known, on either side of the issues–women do not need men to speak for them or make decisions for them.

But then–in order to make points–or at least to appear to make points–the truth gets lost in the midst of the lies. Planned Parenthood does more than provide abortions--they provide birth control–which precludes the need for an abortion. They also provide women important health screening which could save lives. I’m really tired of the false rhetoric pushed by liars in order to gaslight people, promoted by InfoWars, Breitbart, and Fox News.

Of course, considering who is in the White House–sexual predators and abusers of women, it’s not difficult to understand the mentality that exists behind many of the budget cuts and policies–against women. When I heard an old, impotent GOP Senator refer to Elizabeth Warren as “little lady” in a belittling manner, I wanted to slap the grin off his face. So, now I get it–when they get too old for Viagra to hide their impotence, they take their frustration out on women–who are stronger than they are and will persist in their endeavor to expose injustice.

Many people who voted for the impotent GOP are now frustrated because they didn’t bother to listen to everything they said. They had no intention of recognizing women and they did a phenomenal job of turning women against Hillary. I remember hearing one woman say to a reporter, “a woman couldn’t be president because she has hormones.” I’ve seen a lot of hormonal women in action and indeed have been one, but I haven’t seen a woman act as stupidly as the toddler-in-chief. So, what’s his problem–too much testosterone enhancements or missing brain cells?

Instead of ramping up policies for law-abiding citizens (especially when invoking ancient rules on the Senate floor), these old, white men, should retire and sit at home watching sports or reading their latest edition of, “Why It Won’t Work Any More.” If you think I’m angry, you’d be half-right and I won’t bother to tell you about the other half. Before you think my comment is racist–against old white men–think again; if old black men or old Asian men or old Latino men (or any others) disrespected women, I’d say the same thing–but then again, it wasn’t old black, Latino, or Asian men who disrespected Elizabeth Warren–it was Mitch McConnell in support of his equally repugnant crony, Jeff Sessions.

gop-impotence

Looking at who the majority is–sitting in both houses–old white men–we have to understand–our hope cannot be in them; our hope must be in The Lord and in those who hear Him speak to their hearts. We know the old impotent ones are not hearing Him for if they were listening and obeying; they would realize they work for the Americans who voted for them in the first place–not the president–who bullies.

For all the women who understand, our outrage is real and will not subside until the impotent ones are no longer in a position to make decisions for us–I applaud each and every one and know this–I, too, shall persist in making known all the injustices occurring as a result of old frustrated impotent men, who are afraid of strong women.

The Lord will prevail since it is apparent that He cannot count on the “impotent ones” to do what is right for all human beings; especially those in the United States. Nevertheless, we will persist and we will prevail because The Lord is on our side and with Him at the forefront of every battle, we shall know victory on every side.

Our hope is You, Lord! We are listening and we will obey!

Fools and Money

Fools and Money

A prudent servant will rule over a disgraceful son and will share the inheritance as one of the family. The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart. A wicked person listens to deceitful lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue. Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. Eloquent lips are unsuited to a godless fool— how much worse lying lips to a ruler! A bribe is seen as a charm by the one who gives it; they think success will come at every turn. Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. A rebuke impresses a discerning person more than a hundred lashes a fool. Evildoers foster rebellion against God; the messenger of death will be sent against them. Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool bent on folly. Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good. Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— the LORD detests them both. Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor. Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper; one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble. The wicked accept bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice. Proverbs 17:2-20, 23 NIV

A Wicked Person listens to deceitful lips, a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue!

Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?

Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.

The wicked accepts bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice.

One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor.

If we lived according to The Word, how much better would the lives of all be? Since we don’t, we continue to have problems and make problems for years to come for those who have had no input into the workings of the world.

When those in authority do not understand setting priorities, they create unnecessary burdens for others to shoulder.

Americans–in order to continue promoting ourselves as a competitive nation and one who harbors concern for all of its citizens–need access to a quality education and healthcare; our older citizens who have paid into Social Security and Medicare need those resources preserved; we all need to be able to breathe clear air and drink clean water.

Taxpayers do not need to pay a wall they cannot use for daily living.

Politicians need to exercise wisdom in all matters–keeping in mind–they work for the people and every decision made should be in the best interest of the people–not their personal agendas–to control others.
