In Need Of Leadership!

In Need Of Leadership!

Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray. Therefore the Lord will take no pleasure in the young men, nor will he pity the fatherless and widows, for everyone is ungodly and wicked, every mouth speaks folly. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised. Surely wickedness burns like a fire; it consumes briers and thorns, it sets the forest thickets ablaze, so that it rolls upward in a column of smoke.By the wrath of the LORD Almighty the land will be scorched and the people will be fuel for the fire; they will not spare one another.  Isaiah 9:16-19 NIV

Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?” He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” Matthew 15:10-14 NIV

There has been more hatred and bigotry spewed in the last weeks than we saw in the last eight years. Never has there been such a sad representation of humanity stemming from the White House as we’ve seen: hatred spewed against Black NFL players, NBA players, and worst of all–the residents of Puerto Rico–Brown population in crisis due to Hurricane Maria–suffering from loss of homes, electricity, water and the basics one needs to live and the WH idiot unloads on the mayor of San Juan because he’s just that–a total and complete idiot.

And the sad part of the entire situation is those who are consistently propping him up by creating lies to justify his lack of empathy and compassion as demonstrated in his thoughtless tweets. Mick Mulvaney, and Steven Mnuchin and all the other spokespersons in this administration are a perfect example of the blind leading the blind when tell the public lies. They have also been exposed for their use of private jets for which tax payers have paid the price. But then again, they’re following the lead of the WH idiot who has cost tax payers millions in his use of his properties for his weekend forays and charging the government for the security detail to stay there as well as the cost of security for all of his children’s play times.

This administration is the biggest joke on the global stage since the resident of the Oval Office has not yet demonstrated an ability to think–rationally and logically–and is more prone to act out of his hurt feelings–his fragile ego–and narcissistic personality disorder than with any wisdom (not demonstrated in anything he’s said or done).

There are a number of people responsible for this dilemma–the Evangelical leaders who lied to their congregants about trump being God’s choice, the Russians who orchestrated the rigged election, the Main Stream Media who chose not to call out the lies perpetrated by the trump campaign, and the gullible, weak-minded, frustrated, angry people who refused to see truth, and voted for the menace. Though some have recently acknowledged their regret, there are still far too many haters–bigoted persons who support this white supremacist who is anti-American and shows it on a daily basis. And we cannot overlook the role of the GOP who allowed his nomination because of the fringe benefits they received–a guaranteed win because of the collusion with Russia. They are all complicit and are doing nothing to protect Americans from the onslaught of other nations or even protect us from the greed and corruption of the reigning political party. And they think–this is God’s best for us!

Heaven help us all to live through this nightmare and bring us back onto the path of light and truth before total disaster can befall us. Open our eyes so we can see without the blinders of hate and distrust and bigotry and misplaced loyalty. Open our hearts so we may know and reveal truth that aligns with God’s Word. Open our mouths so we may speak out against lies and untruths and injustices of all kinds. Open our ears so we may hear God when He speaks and act accordingly for the benefit of all mankind, loving as He does–unconditionally.

We are not defeated–yet and where there is a will, and people who act according to God’s Will–we will survive and thrive in spite of the attempts to cause immeasurable harm to many–especially those who not white. We can do this by electing an Everyday American who cares about all–regardless of skin tone, religious beliefs, or anything else. In this country, Americans need an American with heart and compassion to lead us–with wisdom and truth being our standard of integrity.

Resist!

Resist!

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 NIV

Today–as many of us prepare to march in demonstration of our frustration about the lack of transparency exhibited by the #WHidiot–we will resist the devil and oppose him on every side until he comes clean about his relationship with Russia by revealing his tax returns. He has something to hide and it’s not about how rich he is. It’s about his connections to Russia on a financial level.

The “muscle-flexing” show he’s putting on for the world playing “chicken” with N. Korea is simply a demonstration of his desire to have center stage. He’s too foolish to even realize the danger he’s creating for everyone– and though he may believe that he’s safe–the end results of a nuclear war will not discriminate from the poor to the White House–obliteration–for all.

If I live through this day and the weeks to come; I will be seeking The Lord for direction as I struggle with a decision to run for president in 2020. After all, if an illiterate imbecile can run and win, I have a good chance at winning as well. The difference between him and me–I have knowledge of civics, the constitution, geography, economics, education, philosophy and a heart of compassion and Holy Spirit directing my steps. Did I leave out anything else as a qualifier? Oh! I have no problem with transparency–background checks, birth certificate checks, college transcripts or tax returns. I think that just about covers it all. Except one more thing–I’d run as an Independent–it’s about Americans, not a political party! I will bring back integrity and honor to the White House! I have no need to lie!

Keep Watching! It’s bound to be fun!

Provocation!

Provocation!

But am I the one they are provoking? declares the LORD. Are they not rather harming themselves, to their own shame?“ ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: My anger and my wrath will be poured out on this place—on man and beast, on the trees of the field and on the crops of your land—and it will burn and not be quenched.“ ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go ahead, add your burnt offerings to your other sacrifices and eat the meat yourselves! For when I brought your ancestors out of Egypt and spoke to them, I did not just give them commands about burnt offerings and sacrifices, but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you. But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward.From the time your ancestors left Egypt until now, day after day, again and again I sent you my servants the prophets. But they did not listen to me or pay attention. They were stiff-necked and did more evil than their ancestors.’“When you tell them all this, they will not listen to you; when you call to them, they will not answer. Therefore say to them, ‘This is the nation that has not obeyed the LORD its God or responded to correction. Truth has perished; it has vanished from their lips. Jeremiah 7:19-28 NIV

Wow! This pronouncement against all who do not seek God and obey Him and is just as relevant today as it was then!

TO THE EVANGELICAL LEADERS WHO TOUTED THE #WHidiot AS GOD’S CHOICE:

Do you see what happens when God is not consulted? Do you see what happens when truth perishes from your lips and you promote lies? Do you understand–yet–how your lies and promotion of this idiot can bring irreparable harm to Americans–all over the globe? If you do not understand the danger your lies and promotion of an imbecile then you are just as responsible for what he does as he is.

TO THE SUPPORTERS OF THE #WHidiot:

Are you still giddy with excitement of his illegal win of the election? Do you see him promoting or acting on your behalf? Does eliminating your healthcare make you scream with joy? Does the possibility of losing your loved ones–both male and female–in another war excite you beyond belief because of his reckless rhetoric? Aren’t you just tickled pink that your tax dollars are paying for his weekend excursions, his children’s security detail, his wife’s security detail, the construction of a helipad at Mar-a-largo, and the launched missiles that have cost over $200 million dollars? Are you happy yet? How about those good paying jobs–have you gotten yours and aren’t you just thrilled that only the rich will benefit from his proposed tax reform? Doesn’t that make you want to just jump and shout with joy? Did you know you were also “electing” the offspring of an idiot to be in charge of policy decisions? Well, did you?

Since you chose to believe the liar-in-chief–are you ready to accept responsibility for the fact that America will never be as great as it could be because of the madman at the helm? I know you believed the lies he spouted because you voted for him and promoted all the “fake news” about Hillary–aren’t you just super-proud of yourselves?

TO THE RESISTANCE:

Don’t get weary in doing what is right in order to save us from the idiocy brought upon us by lying “religious-pseudo-christians” and the “gullible, frustrated white middle class workers” who simply didn’t know any better.

Stand firm in pushing elected leaders to do their jobs. Call, write, Tweet. Never let them forget how they got their jobs.

Stand firm in pushing the Department of Justice to dig as deep as need to dig to make sure truth surfaces about all the involvement by those in the White House that manipulated the 2016 Election.

Stand firm in your resolve to make sure, when one gets weary, another encourages and  keeps up the pace.

Stand firm in your resolve to push the media in staying focused on the investigations and not all the distractions #WHidiot is creating to delay the process.

For those of us who know–and have an intimate relationship with God–we know the truth and we will continue praying that truth will save us and will not promote false news, provoking all the other crazy imbeciles who would love nothing more than to “show us” their might.

The Word tells not to provoke God, for fathers not to provoke children and we should know better than to provoke the enemies of America with foolish rhetoric. If we’re going to provoke anything from God–let’s provoke His protection in our obedience to His Word.

A Fool and His Folly!

A Fool and His Folly!

For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly. Proverbs 5:23 NIV

All who are prudent act with knowledge, but fools expose their folly. Proverbs 13:16 NIV

The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception. Proverbs 14:8 NIV

Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly. Proverbs 14:29 NIV

The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. Proverbs 15:2 NIV

The discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly. Proverbs 15:14 NIV

Folly brings joy to one who has no sense, but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course. Proverbs 15:21 NIV

Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools. Proverbs 16:22 NIV

A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the LORD. Proverbs 19:3 NIV

The schemes of folly are sin, and people detest a mocker. Proverbs 24:9 NIV

Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. Proverbs 26:4 NIV

Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes. Proverbs 26:5

I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness. Ecclesiastes 2:13 NIV

At the beginning their words are folly; at the end they are wicked madness— Ecclesiastes 10:13 NIV

But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. 2 Timothy 3:9 NIV

The Word of God addresses the situation in the White House far better than I ever could. We have but to look at how actions led by the #WHidiot to see how The Word is revealed in all they do.

The end is not yet–we must be determined and persist and insist that Congress do its job and relieve us (all Americans) from the possibility of danger exacerbated by a fool and his follies. #Resistthefool and #Persist in pushing for the investigation of #trumprussia.

God is watching and He knows all there is to know and since He is truth, truth will be revealed for all the world to see.

If there was anyone in the White House or on Capitol Hill with integrity or honor, we would not have to suffer the foolishness of fools because they would simply admit their wrongdoing and we could all move on.

Foolishness!

Foolishness!

In the thirty-sixth year of Asa’s reign Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and fortified Ramah to prevent anyone from leaving or entering the territory of Asa king of Judah. Asa then took the silver and gold out of the treasuries of the LORD’s temple and of his own palace and sent it to Ben-Hadad king of Aram, who was ruling in Damascus. “Let there be a treaty between me and you,” he said, “as there was between my father and your father. See, I am sending you silver and gold. Now break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel so he will withdraw from me.”Ben-Hadad agreed with King Asa and sent the commanders of his forces against the towns of Israel. They conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel Maim and all the store cities of Naphtali. When Baasha heard this, he stopped building Ramah and abandoned his work.Then King Asa brought all the men of Judah, and they carried away from Ramah the stones and timber Baasha had been using. With them he built up Geba and Mizpah. At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him: “Because you relied on the king of Aram and not on the LORD your God, the army of the king of Aram has escaped from your hand.Were not the Cushites and Libyans a mighty army with great numbers of chariots and horsemen? Yet when you relied on the LORD, he delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war.”Asa was angry with the seer because of this; he was so enraged that he put him in prison. At the same time Asa brutally oppressed some of the people. 2 Chronicles 16:1-10 NIV

Does anyone see the parallels from the past to the present other than me?

No matter how hard we try to leave God or His Word out of what unfolds on a daily basis, when we look–diligently–we find there truly is nothing new under the sun. The same wicked attitudes that prevailed in the hearts of those who turned from God (or never knew Him) exist today.

Despots–never have enough and are also willing to make deals with the devil. They don’t care about ruining a nation’s resources as long as they get what they want–attention and praise–but it all fails and God’s truth reigns.

Let’s see:

Who’s building a wall and is the wall to keep others out or us in?

Who owes megabucks to another despot who has no qualms in oppressing or killing people?

Who has incited provocation by another despot simply to create a distraction from an investigation in their involvement with the 2016 Election fiasco?

Who will not listen to those who present truth and instead relies upon those who will only tell him what he wants to hear?

God is not fooled by any of the nonsense and when it is all said and done–the truth will be revealed and those who dare to defy God and mistreat and misuse His children, will get their just reward. For The Word tells, “we will reap what we sow.”

For all the falsehoods and lies proclaimed against Hillary–we see now that the #WHidiot was merely projecting onto her that which resided in him.

He is the corrupt one.

He is the liar.

He is the warhawk.

He is the one who made money from the masqueraded attack on Syria that accomplished nothing.

He is the unstable one and unfit to serve the United States in any capacity unless he’s serving time in prison for all the heinous acts he’s committed.

He’s also the one who lacks stamina (a claim he constantly lodged at Hillary) and can’t get through a month without retreating to one of his golf clubs.

And with all the negative “Tweets” lodged at President Obama, we see further evidence of what he projected about himself. Yeah, he’s very “instinctual.” He’s not very “presidential” and no matter what he does–he won’t be.

But foolishness doesn’t stop with him–it continues on the back of those who supported him in the election and those who refuse to uphold their oaths in Congress. They, too shall know the wrath of God when they are “unseated” never to be seen in a public office ever again.  His base supporters will discover they voted against their own interests, if they have not figured that out, yet. The biggest losers will be those who believed the pathological liar about–non-existing good jobs with good pay, repealing ACA (hatefully known as Obamacare), re-opening coal mines and lowering taxes. Instead we get the decimation of everything established to protect the consumer.

If taxes are lowered–there will be no funding for schools, the poor, the undereducated, the veterans who served this country well, the seniors who worked most of their lives to support the governmental path, and the military will suffer when taxes don’t exist to pay for the costly results of an idiot. The only way, our country survives and thrives is for the most wealthy to pay more taxes so the needs of every citizen are met.

To do things any other way would be pure foolishness. But then–that’s what fools do. But don’t believe the one telling the truth–like Asa did and got angry instead. Anger will not repel God’s truth or prevent the inevitable from disobeying.

About Praying!

About Praying!

“So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with me, for I will not listen to you.  Jeremiah 7:16 NIV

Do not pray for this people or offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress. Jeremiah 11:14 NIV

Then the LORD said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of this people. Jeremiah 14:11 NIV

But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ Matthew  18:16 NIV

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:26 NIV

The time has come (if not already past) for us to recognize that “praying for the #WHidiot” is not changing anything. He’s still the same self-centered, narcissist he’s always been; only thinking about what will work best for him, not the masses, and he’s still lying–to Congress and all America–in his attempt to get the media focus off the trumprussia investigation.

No matter how many times church leaders tell people to pray for this idiot–and see no results; they should be able to draw their own conclusions and people should stop listening to the church leaders and listen to God through understanding His Word. For if people continue to pray for him–to change or whatever they’re praying for–and nothing happens, we should know that we’re not praying the will of God, but by direction of mere mortals who are just as fallible as the rest of us.

I’m not wasting my time praying for the #WHidiot for he has already determined to do whatever he wants to do. I will continue to pray that all Americans will wake up and demand that Congress do their job in upholding the oaths of their office and the Constitution and #impeachtrump.

Until Americans–We The People–stand up to the “wannabe dictator” nothing will ever change. Tax payers are picking up the tab for his weekend excursions and already he’s adding to the national debt by launching an “unwarranted” missile strike against Syria, to the tune of almost $90 million dollars, without congressional authorization. Then, he lied about the strike being a matter of “vital national security” and in some interviews and his letter to Congress, “retaliation” both of which are lies.  We don’t need a reactionary in the White House, we need a leader–one who is capable of thinking and rational, logical conclusions. We don’t have that person in the White House.

The pictures did not move him to “horror and grief” for there have been more pictures from years ago depicting the horror suffered by those of chemical weapon attacks. Perhaps, as it has been stated about the idiot–a picture with fewer words will help all to understand the travesty of having this person in the Oval Office.

empathy

No matter what–most of us–who are not blinded by the drama–will push Congress to do their job and we who know The Lord, will keep praying for revelation knowledge of truth for all who have been blinded by the shiny object–so-called Syrian initiative.

Double-Minded?

Double-Minded?

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. James 1:2-7 NIV

When people are controlled by their emotions, they risk endangering themselves and others. Yes, we should be compassionate people and concerned with the wrongs perpetuated against others, but we should never allow our emotions to guide us in being impulsive and reactive to situations. Before we do anything, at any time, we must understand all the potential consequences. And without a plan, we should do nothing and if we do–without planning–we end up looking foolish.

That’s the state of affairs that currently exist in America and probably across the globe. There are some who think conducting a missile strike against Syria without congressional approval was courageous and bold and there are others who know Congress should always decide military action against another country when it could endanger US troops or America. The bigger problem is that the #WHidiot acted impulsively and reactively (supposedly upset about children dying in Syria), but didn’t have a plan–just a reaction. Now, the world leaders wait to see what happens next because there is no clearly defined foreign policy known to anyone, including the idiot.

The fact that he claims he had the authority to act without congressional approval because it was “vital to national securitywas and is a blatant lie. The United States was not threatened in any way by Assad, but our troops in the Middle East, could very well be endangered by the reactive, impulsivity of the #WHidiot.

But the even stranger part of his reaction is the “change of mind” from several years ago when he “tweeted” (43 times) that President Obama should not get involved with Syria because “there was no upside” in doing so and that President Obama needed Congressional approval to act. Considering the fact that more people (including children) were killed in 2013 than recently, I’m having difficulty understanding why the idiot had no compassion then, but wants everyone to believe he’s so upset now. I also don’t understand why some members of Congress are applauding his blatant disregard of the Constitution since Congress was not informed, nor gave approval of his actions. But I guess when he told Putin what he was doing, he had all the approval he needed.

He’s not upset about children dying in Syria or he wouldn’t have banned Syrian Refugees from coming into this country. It’s all an act to get the media to pay more attention to the possibility of an act of war than to the on-going trumprussia investigation. He knows he’s about to lose the farm. No one paying attention to the unfolding events on a daily basis believed his lie. But–his tactic worked–the media went crazy covering the strike in Syria and no mention made of the investigation. I wonder why.

But the idiot’s backpedaling is nothing new–that’s what he did the entire time he campaigned and why anyone thought he’d change is a source of amazement to me. People are who they show themselves to be–the first time out the gate. They don’t change. He’s been a double-minded, unstable, unfit person from the beginning and that has not changed. He will praise himself and belittle anyone who thinks he’s not the greatest thing that could have ever happened to America.

He’s the worst president we’ve had during my lifetime. He’s so full of himself that he only cares about those people who stroke his ego and won’t tell him the truth about anything. His enablers are afraid of him, the media pundits only care about ratings, so that leaves just a handful of us who really care enough about all Americans to speak the truth–about everything–and call out the lies and falsehoods as they present themselves. That’s love! We are not double-minded and we won’t stop telling the truth–no matter how many times the government attempts to muzzle us.

As for our GOP congress–they are equally complicit in everything that is spiraling out of control because they allowed their greed for power and control to get in the way of governing which is their job. So, they too are double-minded and unstable in all their ways (one set of rules for the Black President and another set of rules for the #WH idiot) and unfortunately, the rest of us have to deal with their unstable, unfair, decisions that impact all of our lives.

But God knows who belongs to Him and who just puts on a front. Their end is already determined and when the fall-out upends their careers, they have only themselves to blame. Karma bites.
