“Tell The Truth And Shame The Devil!”

“Tell The Truth And Shame The Devil!”

Then you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32 NIV

Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want want to carry out our father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God. John 8:43-47 NIV

Although we know that Jesus was talking to the Jews who had a problem believing who He was, we also know that those words ring very true today. Liars are influenced by the devil, the truth is foreign to all pathological liars and until we are willing to speak truth and accept truth, we remain in bondage to doing the devil’s bidding.

I think it’s about time–everyone woke up–and started speaking the truth about daily news events and the threat hanging over us with Russia’s asset in the White House. I have been saying this for over a year and some have chosen to stop following me and that is certainly their right. I will continue to speak the truth as I see it. donald trump is a Russian asset; he has been used to dismantle American democracy and we can see the effects on a daily basis with the attacks on the media, on people of color, and even on those elected officials in Congress. Whether there are those who want to admit they made a mistake by supporting trump or not is totally irrelevant. If American democracy is to be sustained, we must all speak truth to power and keep speaking it until it sinks in and when or if it doesn’t, we must all be prepared to fight to save our Constitutional freedoms by voting blue in every election across the nation!

As Jesus told the Jews, the reason many won’t hear my voice or the voice of others who consistently speak truth about trump is because they do not want to hear truth and they are following the dictates of the devil. It doesn’t matter whether those who refuse to hear and accept truth call themselves Christians or not. If they refuse to hear and speak truth, it’s because they are not “Bible Christians” but conservative Christians who are in essence–false Christians. I am a Bible Christian and I will speak truth and if people choose to hear it, great, if not–great. I will be held accountable for what I do–and they will be held accountable for what they do. I will speak truth and speak truth, shaming the devil. By the way, the title of this blog is reflective of what I’ve heard a number of preachers say, “tell the truth and shame the devil.” It is appropriate at this time and place in our history. We must tell the truth–the world sees and recognizes the truth and they’re judging the rest of us as to whether or not–we will. Russia has an asset in the WH and his name is donald trump.

For instance, the special counsel that trump keeps trying to impugn (along with a number of republican congressmen) is not conducting a witch hunt (and if they are–they’re finding witches with all the indictments). The “witch hunt” theory is simply smoke and mirrors propaganda, designed to keep his base from hearing the truth. It’s a tactic also used by other dictators–along with maligning the press–especially those who print and broadcast truth. The devil is afraid of truth, which is why he tries so hard to keep people from hearing the truth. For if people heard truth and spoke truth, the devil would be out of business and peace would be possible on earth–in all countries.

Another tactic being used to erode truth is the misleading information about the Democratic Party–created by the GOP to malign Democrats. There is propaganda being spread all over the Internet via blogs, ads, and videos–produced by conservative entities that are determined to suppress the vote–especially the vote of the Black Community. If anyone in the Black Community has succumbed to the GOP lies, it’s time they woke up to truth–the truth is that Republicans don’t want you to vote unless you side with them. And the reason they want you to side with them is so they can–call a Constitutional Convention, rewrite the Constitution, and take away the rights of all people of color and women. Don’t believe me–do some research for yourself. This is all part of the plan to allow the United States of America to slide into tyranny. Look at the imbalance of power that exists and know that if Republicans remain in control of all branches of government, there will only be a dictatorship governing.

Look, this is not about abortion rights and religious freedom as those “conservative (false) Christians would have people to believe–this is about our democracy–about putting country before political party. If we don’t, we all suffer the consequences and none of us will survive the outcome for long. We already see increased cost at gas pumps, transportation of food and goods, and in October–the increase in healthcare insurance will be more than many of us can afford–all because of party partisanship that cares not one whit about the people. The fact that elected officials have lined their own pockets and bank accounts is the fault of those who voted for them without paying attention to their open agenda–they did not hide their agenda, but they were counting on people to put political party before what’s best for the country. And here we are!

However, just because we’re here–facing the possibility of seeing the demise of American freedoms, we don’t have to let it happen. The only way we can stop what’s happening right now is get out and vote and vote Blue–No Matter Who! We have to vote Blue in every local, state–primary and general election to get America back on track to sustain our Democracy. If we fail to do that–this November 6, 2018–we may never get a chance to vote again. Again, don’t believe me–do some research and determine the agenda that trump is pushing in order to give Putin the advantage over America. I will never stop fighting to keep our Democracy strong and to keep a dictator from running rough shod over all.

In Michigan–for our primary on 8/7/18–vote for Gretchen Whitmer for Governor and Dana Nessel for Attorney General and Ellen Lipton for CD09 and Kristina Lodovisi for state Senator.  In November–Vote Blue–again for Gretchen, Dana and all other Democrats on the ballot. For Supreme Court Judges–vote for Sam Bagenstos and Megan Cavanaugh to balance decision-making.  Don’t allow GOP tactics to keep you under the thumb of a rising dictator in America.

Across this great nation on November 6, 2018 rise up and vote in numbers never thought of before and make your voices heard–We Do Not Want A Dictator ruling this country–so Vote Blue–No Matter Who–across the land.

What Supporting Caging Children Says!

What Supporting Caging Children Says!

In this political climate–forged by hatred and bigotry on one side (the trump regime), children are caged like animals–separated from their parents–all because they dared to seek asylum in America. I know there are many people who have varying thoughts about this situation, but that doesn’t change the core of the problem. These families–who feared persecution, torture and all sorts of inhumane acts against them–risked their lives and their children’s lives to get away from their countries–hopeful of finding safe haven in the United States.

Unfortunately, what they found was a hateful, bigoted regime–financed by tax payers who would rip their children from their arms, farm them out to detention centers and cage them–without the parents knowing where their children or how they’re being treated. This is the act of a “rogue government” who has demonstrated on more than one occasion they have not respect for the rule of law. Because of their zero tolerance for other human beings seeking safety, we should treat them (Jeff Sessions, Kirsten Nielsen, and trump) the same way–like they are inferior human beings because they are.

The assenting by silence and inaction GOP Congress–does not deserve to maintain their seats in Congress and should be voted out–summarily this November 6, 2018 and for those seats that are up for re-election in the Senate–we need to change the balance of power before we all lose what fragile rights, now observed.

The GOP have failed their constitutional obligations–to keep a check on whoever is in the White House. Because of their inability to do their job–which includes enacting common sense gun reform and immigration policies, we find ourselves in a country which it is easier to buy a gun than it is to get healthcare or get Congress to do their job.

We have a choice in the upcoming elections and the choice should resonate loud and clear to those in the White House–we will not tolerate children being treated like animals! For any “Conservative Christian” to continue to support trump and his unAmerican policies, shame on you. You are not the Christians recognized in the bible. In fact, I doubt seriously if God would recognize any of you as being followers of Jesus Christ. How do I know? Your fear and propensity to accept and promote fearmongering rhetoric tells me so. “Perfect love (unconditional) casts aside fear.” So if you’re acting out of fear simply because a bigoted racist tells you to be afraid, you do not belong to Christ. If you believe trump’s lies and promotes them, you are of your father, Satan–who is the father of lies. And just so you know–Jesus was a brown-skinned man–not white. Those are lies perpetuated throughout Christendom in nations who prefer to promote “white superiority” instead of love towards all human beings.

What you need to do is come out from behind the walls of “fearmongering in the guise of Conservative Christianity” and get acquainted with the real world. More crime is committed by those who were born in this country–Black and White–than any of the immigrants who came here. And while I’m on the subject–the only two groups of people in this country right now–that were never immigrants to America–are the Native Inhabitants and Slaves. Everyone else–chose to come here–as an opportunity to thrive and excel and now–some of you want to deny others the opportunity your ancestors had.

Make no mistake, those of us who are watching and have been paying attention–we knew–Make America Great Again–was all about trying to make America white again. We’re not stupid. I said this from the very beginning of the 2016 presidential campaigns and many tried to tell me I was wrong. What was that? I can’t hear you. Tell me again, I was wrong and I’ll call you a liar to your face (at least your online presence). We have the most bigoted racist person sitting in the Oval Office–ever in the 20th Century and it’s all due to the lie promoted by White Evangelicals and their congregations. GOD DID NOT CHOOSE TRUMP–YOUR BIGOTRY AND FEAR CHOSE TRUMP!

And please–don’t bother to tell about me about your being pro-life because the evidence is in–GOP policies decimate the poor and vulnerable–those lives outside the womb. Those who proclaim they are pro-choice actually mean they are “pro-fetus” since they could care less about life once it puts in appearance. Christian Conservatives are not Christians, but religious people (modern day Pharisees) who are only interested in “controlling” others. That evidence is readily seen–efforts to disband Planned Parenthood (out of fear of white extinction), controlling women’s health and reproductive choices, while at the same time–encouraging sexual predators as revealed in the party of trump. I know a number of Republicans who are not thrilled with the direction this country is taking and some of them are even advocating that everyone vote for Democrats–to save our democracy from becoming a fascist regime led by trump and his Putin cohorts.

Listen and learn, watch a real news channel (Fox is not licensed to produce news, but opinions) and do some research for yourself rather than sitting by complacently waiting to be fed the latest lie. If you support caging children and separating them from their parents, you are not a Bible Christian, but an inhuman perpetrator of lies. And God, not me–will hold you accountable for what you do or don’t do–claiming to be a follower of Christ.

I’m Tired!

I’m Tired!

I’m tired of all the lies and all the liars!

I’m tired of Republicans acting like there’s nothing wrong with trump.

I’m tired of the white Evangelicals making excuses for the WH menace.

I’m tired of trump supporters’ inability to think for themselves.

I’m tired of the media outlets allowing ignorance to manipulate the news cycles.

I’m tired of seeing children separated from their parents being treated like animals.

I’m tired of people who know truth but won’t speak up to help end this nightmare.

I’m tired of politicians who are afraid to speak truth to power because they might lose an election.

I’m tired of all the people who complain, but won’t vote to change things.

I’m tired of listening to the cult expound the lies they’ve been told and believe.

I’m tired of those who won’t uphold their oaths of office and are allowing this country to sink.

I’m tired of apologizing to our allies for the nut job in the WH.

I’m tired of watching rising prices for gas, good and healthcare.

I’m tired of people thinking that Democrats can’t be Christians even though we’re more Christian than the Republicans who apparently don’t know Jesus.

I’m tired of the evil ones who use the bible to perpetuate their evil.

I’m tired of not knowing where all this will end–in the next year or two.

Okay, so I’m tired and I’m sure there are millions of others just as tired as I am of all the stupid we’ve had to endure. There is a way out from under the stupid–people simply have to get out and vote and vote for the party who has a heart, not just ideological beliefs.

Regardless of party affiliation or none–it’s time for Americans to step up and take control of the situation and vote for Democrats up and down the ballot in every city, township, and state. We must start where we live with local elections and then spread it out to all the general elections so the United States of America will have a chance to preserve our democracy for future generations.

Are you ready? Let’s get it done!

Criticizing Leaders Is American!

Criticizing Leaders Is American!

Okay, I’m a bit frustrated with all the nonsense promoted by the #MAGA group who think that criticizing trump is anti-American. The truth of the matter is–they do not understand the first amendment rights provided in The Constitution. Better yet, they have no idea what the Constitution really says about anything and since they don’t read, they won’t.

Bottom line is this–under the first amendment of the Constitution, we all have the right to the freedom of expression. So when we criticize the the WH idiot because of all the idiotic things he does, we have a right to do so. After all, American and the entire world saw all the “criticism” of President Obama that was never-ending and still going on now, even though he’s no longer the president of the United States (still better than the one in the Oval Office at the moment). So let’s look at who is truly un-American, Anti-American because they criticized and lied on, President Obama. The list is long so if I missed a few, let me know.

Donald Trump–must be un-American/Anti-American because he promoted the lie that Obama was not born in the United States.

Melania Trump for parroting the lie.

Mitch McConnell–criticized Obama from day one and deliberately thwarted Obama’s efforts to do his job. “We’ll make sure he’s a one-term president and obstruct anything he wants to do.” (Remember that one, Mitch?)

Paul Ryan

Rand Paul

Mitt Romney

Orrin Hatch

Steve King

Bill O’Reilly

All Fox News Hosts

All Media

Most Republicans (and some Democrats)

Most Evangelicals (and faux Christians)

The KKK

And anyone else who “dared to criticize” the president, including me. When I don’t agree, I criticize, but it doesn’t make me un-American/Anti-American. It proves that I am an American who knows my rights as an American. Do you get it now?

Just remember–Karma bites–when trying to malign others and trying to place them in hell–simply because “you don’t know The Constitution” can have its drawbacks. Ask Larry Kudlow–he’ll understand.

And get this–only in a fascist regime, authoritarian government where a dictator reigns is “criticism not allowed.” Ask those in Russia, China, Venezuela, or NK or any other country that does not have a democracy that gives people the right to say what they want to say. Go ahead–ask them! And until you understand what the 1st amendment means, stop trying to coerce others into believing what you believe. We don’t have to believe you, anymore than you have to believe us.

But just so you know–I’ve taken the opportunity to remind you below–about The Bill of Rights included in The Constitution of the United States (not the divided states of trump). https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/bill-of-rights-transcript

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. (notice this says nothing about the right of individuals to stockpile weapons or to even own them).

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Now check out the “preamble” of the Constitution:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Notice how it starts–“We the People of the United States” and not an illegitimate president…One person does not decide what we can or cannot do in this country–and those of us who love this country, will make sure we preserve our democracy and all of the rights it affords others whether we like them or not; agree with them or not, because it is every person’s right to agree or disagree, criticize or not. That’s what it means to be an American, in America.
So, trump is wrong, Mike Pence is wrong, Jeanine Pirro is wrong, Larry Kudlow is wrong, Peter Navarro is wrong and so is everyone else who thinks we shouldn’t criticize trump or any other president. Get the facts and understand your rights and the rights of others.

Constitutional Crisis or Congressional Corruption?

Constitutional Crisis or Congressional Corruption?

Every single day, there is more nonsense coming from the Oval Office resident–proving he is totally, undeniable unfit for the position in which he holds. Every single day, GOP Congress remains silent and refuses to exercise their Constitutional oversight and rein him in. Perhaps, the real problem with Congress is–they’ve been bought and paid for by so many PACs and corporation donors to the point where they have completely forgotten their congressional oath–to uphold the Constitution, not the person in the Oval Office.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but it seems like our Congressional Leaders should be the examples for future generations as to how to lead. But then again, perhaps that’s the problem–Republicans don’t know how to lead, just whine and complain.
They complained about President Obama and whined about everything he did–even when they held the majority in both houses–they still whined. They whined about Hillary’s emails, Benghazi, and Uranium One and Fast and Furious and the SCOTUS seat, and Michelle’s bare arms, and Obama’s tan suit, and the daughter’s short skirts, and the Dijon mustard and everything that wasn’t a Constitutional violation.
But with trump–with the violation of the Emoluments Clause, the nepotism, the breech in disclosing–honestly–financial records, attempting to suppress and bar the media from reporting activities that are of American interest, and obstructing justice when he’s being investigated–majority leaders are silent, while a fringe (secretsocietytheorists) are infringing upon the DOJ’s office to unmask an informant–simply because trump ordered it–an abuse of power–according to the Constitution.
Remember when Republicans were supposed to be the “fiscally conservative” party? Now, they’re watching trump run rampant through tax payer dollars with minting coins that mean nothing, parading our military to appease his ego, and never curtailing his expenses–billed to the US treasury with his golf outings and other non-essentials. TAX PAYERS ARE FOOTING THE BILLS.
But then, you have those low-educated, ill-informed voters who choose to support the racist, pathological liar, in the Oval Office–who complained about the Obamas taking too many vacations–at tax payer expense–but not a peep about all the money being paid out for trump’s golf outings at his own properties.
Double-whammies–trump and his supporters (sycophants) worshiping him as their god and a complicit Congress who won’t do their job.
So are we facing a Constitutional Crisis or just seeing what Congressional Corruption looks like–up close and personal?

In Case You Missed It!

In Case You Missed It!

I’m uploading a number of videos on YouTube as part of my presidential exploration. Surprisingly, a number of people have weighed in on what I’ve said about trump–they either agreed or didn’t. A couple of people–white males–even got nasty and profane. But that’s their prerogative. I don’t respond in kind. And since I wasn’t sure if people missed what was said, I thought I’d post here–especially since I seem to be picking up so many followers from “outlook.com” Trying to figure out–why!

At any rate, here’s the link. Feel free to share or comment–knowing I won’t respond to nastiness–beneath me to do so, but I welcome open conversation about how we can fix the mess we find ourselves in with this WH administration. So, if you have 12 minutes to spare–enjoy!

 

More coming soon, but the content will be about how I see the solutions to the problems that face many.

Evangelicals Are Tired Of Living!

Evangelicals Are Tired Of Living!

Many Evangelicals have conned their congregations into believing God determined that Donald J. Trump should be president because he would usher in the second coming of Christ and they believe that establishing an embassy in Jerusalem will bring it to pass. In essence, they want the end to come based upon John’s revelation which means they’re tired of living.

When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog--and to gather them for battle. In number they are like sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:7-10 NIV

He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. Revelation 21:6-8 NIV

There is a great deal more that is revealed to John, but since I’m trying to make a point about the lie perpetuated by many church leaders, I won’t spin my wheels trying to extrapolate it. The bottom line is–since the Evangelicals believe trump is the impetus to bringing about the return of Christ–they are also acknowledging he is anti-Christ (Satan, the devil) because according to scripture, it is when Satan is loosed and most of us–Christian and non-Christian believe trump is the epitome of the anti-Christ because nothing he does–is Christ-like and certainly does not reflect his belief or willingness to do as Christ would do.

Now, many may argue my point and that is certainly their right, but I’ve never seen anyone as divisive, vile, and ego-driven as trump or his idolatrous worshipers who are filled with hateful bigotry. They are the ones who need to be concerned about the end since they will miss heaven. What they have overlooked is, there will be no “new Jerusalem” until all the old has been destroyed and at that time–there will be no need for walls or war–because the reference is to our lives in heaven.

I can’t speak for every Born-Again believer who truly conducts themselves as followers of Christ, but I can speak for myself. I am appalled at the atrocity Evangelicals have instigated by lying to their flocks. They have misled and misdirected so many people into believing the lie that many are prepared to “kill others” because of their idolatrous worship of trump. But I am not their judge, God is–the God of heaven, not the god of this world who has deceived them and is now, laughing out loud at their folly. They may not see it, yet, and may not even see it before their demise, but it will be noted in the books of history and certainly noted in the records of heaven.

The Evangelicals in the 21st Century–are the contemporary Pharisees who are not interested in all developing and maintaining a life with Christ–doing good, but in controlling what people think and do. They have been deceived and are not willing to admit their mistakes and tell people the truth. They don’t have to tell people the truth; there are many of us who continue to tell the truth–Evangelicals have lied to their congregations and are apparently, tired of living. Well, since they’re tired of living, they should effectuate their deaths and leave the rest of us alone. The end will come–but only when God decides, not them. But we have to give them credit where credit is due–their choice (not God’s) in supporting trump is leading to the destruction of the earth and God will hold them accountable for that.

For the rest of us who are not tired of living, but have hope in the future and a desire for our children and grandchildren to enjoy the planet–we have work to do and we don’t have time to wait for if we delay–for any reason–we perpetuate the nonsense being spewed by those Evangelicals who are tired of living. It is time to Resist the evil that confronts and unite to conquer the evil with love and compassion, driving out all the hate and bigotry.
