When Hatred Drives The Narrative

When Hatred Drives The Narrative

The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin.Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.Whoever winks maliciously causes grief, and a chattering fool comes to ruin. The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence. Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs. Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning, but a rod is for the back of one who has no sense.The wise store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, but poverty is the ruin of the poor. The wages of the righteous is life, but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death. Whoever heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray. Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool. Proverbs 10:8-18 NIV

There is therefore, not much need for me to say much more, but I do want to focus on how this segment from Proverbs–reveals why we have the current climate in Washington that we have.  If we look at what occurred prior to the 2016 Election and during it–and actually see “without the hate-tinted glasses” we understand how tRump’s hatred of Obama drove him to run for president and the false propaganda invigorated hatred of Hillary drove people to vote for tRump.

But let’s look at this in a point-by-point analysis:

  • A chattering fool comes to ruin–chattering–running of the mouth or in the case of 45, his twitter rants are equivalent of someone running their mouth without knowledge–just talk.
  • A crooked path has been taken to the White House since Russian hacking and the promulgation of false propaganda against Hillary caused otherwise rational people to vote against their own interests.
  • Hatred stirs up conflict–whoever holds hate in their hearts against anyone or anything, allows emotions to become the driving force in their life and it taints everything they do. From rallying cries of, “Lock her up,” “crooked Hillary,” and encouraging the production and sale of the most vile, and heinous campaign memorabilia–the conflict is obvious. Though there was at one time a “cordial relationship” between the Clintons and 45–his hatred drove the narrative that created the gap and animosity that continues to exist.
  • A rod is for the back of those who have no sense–normally referencing the need to use corporal punishment for those who refused to obey, in this case--the disapproval rate of 45 should serve as the rod to bring a change of behavior.
  • Poverty is the ruin of the poor and with the tax cuts for the wealthy and the programs that benefit the poor–the poor will come to ruin if they don’t wake up and smell the stench emanating from the White House.
  • The earnings of the wicked are sin and death--whenever anyone increases their wealth by illegal, questionable, or immoral means--they have put themselves in a position to at some point–lose it all. God is deceived and He is watching all.
  • Discipline–it is highly obvious that there has been no discipline in the life of 45 as a child and his temper tantrums have evolved into his Twitter rants when he doesn’t get his way. His greed for power and complicity in the 2016 Election fiasco has led to the ruin of the GOP leadership who went along with it to gain power for themselves.  None of them have any credibility at all since revelations are made daily about their knowledge of the Russian hacking surfaced.
  • Hiding hatred behind lying–has never worked and will never work. When lips say one and actions say another–the concealed hatred is exposed for all to see and then to spread lies–because of the hatred–reveals the fool. By definition–an idiot is a foolish or stupid person.

The bottom line to all this is, Americans (the gullible) have allowed hatred to drive the narrative in the decision-making process of the 2016 Election and now–we all suffer the consequences and risk losing lives in an ill-fated bullying tactic which could lead to a war with N. Korea at its helm.

Is that the narrative we really want driven in this global environment where peace is tenuous at best, but could be destroyed forever?

There is a better driving force that makes for a better narrative and that force is love. Why not allow love to drive us on the journey to peace and prosperity for all!

Overwhelming Prevarications!

Overwhelming Prevarications!

These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19 KJV

POLITIC ALERT!

If you’re like me, you are so tired of all the blatant lies and contemptuousness spewed continuously by one particular candidate!

Now, I know people say Hillary has lied about certain events and I would strongly suggest that whoever is saying it–would look into the truth of the matter about Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, and her emails (and not just get their information from Fox News or Breitbart.com, or manipulated videos)  She has accepted responsibility for using the personal server–and yet there is no proof that she was hacked. With all of the investigations conducted by a Republican committee–no wrong doing has surfaced about the loss of life at the embassy, “Benghazi” and if people want to be outraged–they should be outraged with the Republicans for not providing adequate resources for those at the embassy. And as far as the Clinton Foundation is concerned, I’d strongly suggest that people take the time to research what the Foundation does and pay more attention to that than the source of the donations. For the bible says, “the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.” (A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.Proverbs 13:22)

On the other hand, Trump’s dismissive and contemptuous attitude towards those women alleging his misconduct is deplorable. His wife’s acceptance of his actions is even more deplorable. He is not “a boy” and if that’s her excuse for 59 year-old behavior, then she should keep her “boy” in check and discipline him. As far as why the women are just coming forth with their stories–it’s very simple. The tape was just recently aired–on a Friday and then on Sunday, Trump say he had never done what he bragged about on the tape. The women have said,”his lie angered them” and that is why they are just coming forth.  This is not a coordinated conspiracy with the media and the Clinton campaign. Trump opened the door for this when he brought those women to the debate and now he can’t handle the fall-out. He apparently didn’t read the book of Esther to know about the Hamanesque effect.

We do not need a boy in the White House trying to make decisions for Americans.  We need an adult in the White House who understands the difference between acting like an adult and being a boy. And for her to further insult–anyone who has heard the tape–by saying, “he was egged on to say what he say,” is absolutely ludicrous. He initiated the exchange heard and if Billy Bush can lose his job for the part he played in the fiasco, Trump  should certainly not be allowed to sit in the White House in the highest office of the land.

I am so tired of the lies and negativity that my prayer has been, “nevertheless, Lord–come quickly.” I’m ready for this election to be over so maybe, just maybe, the adults in the situation can begin the process of healing and restoring sanity.

I have a great deal of faith in the American people to see truth in the midst of all the smokescreens and do the right thing in this election, but I have more faith in God–and know that whatever happens–it will be according to His Will and His plans.
