“This country was started by a bunch of Christians from Europe, who had been influenced by the preaching and teaching of Luther, Calvin, Knox, and the Reformers; they came over here and settled. When the time came to set up a government, the leaders had to base it on the Bible to get the Christians to accept it. One of those “Founding Fathers” (John Adams) said,
“Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”
If that’s the case, this nation is shot. The culture of the Pilgrims, Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards, Asbury, Cartwright, Moody, Sunday, et al., is gone. The church in America no longer has any influence. When the basic “freedom” is the right to fornicate at will with whomever (or whatever!), instead of the freedom to worship and serve God as the Bible says, it’s over.”
We witnessed yet again the inability to exact an ethical and reasonable work of leadership from the individual who serves as president of the USA, the individual, BHO aka “the chief empty suit” (CES). He is busy doing what he can to hinder the transition and then ongoing Presidential administration of the next President of the USA, Donald J. Trump. The last time a President met such unprofessional and unethical treatment by the outgoing administration was when Bill Clinton left office. (Hmmm, see a pattern forming?)
CES is busy writing executive orders (EOs) with the sole purpose of limiting Trump’s ability to lead this country. Yes it is true some of what is on Trump’s agenda is to roll back CES legislation and/or EOs. Is it not reasonable to correct an error if it lies within your power to do so?
CES is busy building his executive hq in DC in the heart of the embassies of foreign nations to more effectively network and link-in progressive change makers/experts for the USA (that is code for socialist troublemakers/organizers).
And the CES being the empty suit he is, has worked feverishly to blast what he hopes is a crippling blow to Israel and more specifically to Netanyahu. He tried his best to defeat him in the last Israeli election but failed. Now his administration has aggressively worked behind the scenes to bring to the UN a resolution to condemn Israel for not embracing a nation (PNA/PLO/Hamas) that do not acknowledge the right of the nation of Israel to exist but also holds the belief and aggressively educates its youth to fight, attack and kill until every Jew is destroyed. The CES’s administration decision of not vetoing the resolution is receiving rebuke from Democrats and Republicans.
“An Egyptian newspaper has published what it claims are the transcripts of meetings between top US and Palestinian officials that, if true, would corroborate Israeli accusations that the Obama administration was behind last week’s UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements.”
Other reports of Biden calling foreign leaders expressing that they need to vote for the resolution are surfacing. Off course Biden’s office says that it isn’t true.
In matters less serious but still on topic, we have the amateurish comments by the CES that if he was running against Trump he would have won.
Smooth transition of power eh?
Professional and ethical actions of the head of government, huh?
Quality example of leadership we should point to others to emulate, huh?
See Ed Klein’s remarks today about all of this. (about 5 min in length)

Michelle Obama’s ‘Hopelessness’ Shows It Sucks to Be a Liberal
by Susan Stamper Brown
“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.” – Emily Dickinson
It’s a shame that Michelle Obama says she’s feeling hopeless this Christmas, especially after all the wonderful opportunities she’s had as America’s first lady. It goes to show you that liberalism is like a disease that won’t be satisfied until it devours all of you. Undoubtedly, all the designer gown-wearing, Hollywood hobnobbing, $100-per-serving wagyu steak indulging and taxpayer-funded globetrotting won’t fix the hopelessness which ails her. It’s hard to be hope-filled when you tangle yourself in a web of bitterness and resentment over America’s past.
Just last year, Mrs. Obama shared how she really feels during a racially-divisive commencement speech at Tuskegee University that would have made its founder, Booker T. Washington, grieve. In fact, in his book, “My Larger Education,” Washington warned readers about people like her, calling them “problem profiteers.”
Washington wrote: “There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Michelle’s “problem profiteering” came across loud and clear with her admission of hopelessness during the recent Oprah Winfrey interview. She came across like a spoiled brat when she said, “We are feeling what not having hope feels like” — although her husband, Mr. Hope-and-Change himself, had eight years to propagate hope had he not been so preoccupied with change.
Mrs. Obama is leaving the White House with the same negative attitude about America she’s had most of her adult life. Apparently, it changed temporarily, when her husband became the 2008 Democrat Party nominee.
“For the first time in my adult life,” she said, “I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
But, now that President Obama’s on his way out the door, hope is too.
It’s as if she sincerely believes that hope rises and falls based on her husband. It is enormously arrogant to suggest that any human being has that much power, let alone someone whose policies: wrecked healthcare and made it unaffordable, hurt manufacturing and downgraded the job market, lowered household incomes and added millions to food stamp rolls, weakened the military and made us less safe, played class politics and eviscerated racial unity — to name a few.
With “hope” like that, no wonder Americans voted for change.
Obviously, Michelle won’t be happy until everyone feels as hopeless as she does about America.
But, that’s not going to happen.
In fact, the Electoral College just met and did its job to seal the deal for Trump, who won more counties that any candidate since Ronald Reagan. The U.S. Constitution worked, despite the obnoxious temper tantrums, death threats and harassment hurled at the electors by crazy, crybaby leftists who refuse to accept the fact that if Americans had wanted to give Obama a third term, Hillary Clinton would’ve handily won.
Instead, voters sent the leftist, totalitarian agenda packing. And stocks rose and poll after poll reflect that Americans have a growing and glowing optimism about the direction America is headed.
If that is Michelle Obama’s definition of hopelessness, then it sucks to be a liberal.

President Hassan Rouhani said the last year’s nuclear deal “was the cheapest way to achieve Iran’s goals and interests.”
Speaking in Tehran on Saturday at an iftar meal breaking the Ramadan fast, Rouhani said the pre-Iran nuclear-deal era is past and Iran now needs to take advantage of the new atmosphere to pursue its “national interests more than before,” Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
The country’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday called for student associations to establish a “unified anti-US and anti-Zionist front” among the Muslim world’s students, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“By using advanced means of communication and in cyberspace, general campaigns can be formed by Muslim students based on the opposition to the policies of the US and the Zionist regime of Israel so that when needed, millions of young Muslim students create a big movement in the Islamic world,” he said.
In other words, what Rouhani was saying is that it is always wise to sacrifice a few pieces on the game board in order to capture the king.
There has been a non-stop stream of news involving the desire of many muslims to change the different countries in the world to their warped, barbaric and masochistic evil ungodly ways. All that Rouhani, Khamenei and other like in evil spirit have is their hate, belligerence & narcissism to fuel suffering, wickedness and death.
“By their fruits you shall know them.”
In the USA where the moniker of diversity has been twisted and used to force many wrong ideologies at the expense of individualism, liberty and freedom – one SHOULD think that its society would be rising and pressing our national government to do all it can to protect our people and allies from a religion that is against diversity.
But low and behold it is not happening. Instead what we have in the USA, is the people/party who hijacked the beauty and value of diversity, is the undying loyalty of these people to a religion which maims women, denigrates women, actively uses force and execution to eliminate opposition.
All the while the religion of Islam has its forces networking, planning for a new phase of bringing the world under its hideous sharia law.
The chief empty suit of the USA has done more to assist the treacherous Ayatollah than any president before him. NOW – His supporters are wanting to elect a new president with the same like mind. In four years from now, I wonder how far our country and the rest of the world will be in submission to Islam.
I’m not a fan of the host or show usually but I was forwarded this link and now I want to share the information.
The organization mentioned in the interview is Clarion Project.
Please share this information with others.
Please get involved.
A lot of times people who think Christianity is just another tale created by…. for…. (You can fill in what you have heard as well or what you may usually say) also state that they are “open-minded”. In reference to religion or spirituality they either believe _____ or don’t believe in anything at all because they go by “facts”, you know things they can “see” and “verify”. Faith? No room for it. “I got it see it and touch it” is a common phrase. One can punch holes in the logic of the so-called reason but then it doesn’t accomplish too much (to the best of my knowledge).
Recently I have changed my approach. Now I simply state something and let the Holy Spirit work on them when He feels there is good opportunity.
Here’s the gist:
“Ok – you are open-minded, that is good. Since you are open-minded and we are talking about something that does have eternal consequences you should try this.
After all, you are open-minded and no harm will come of it.
Starting today read one chapter in the Gospel of John per day. Before you read it simply say “God if You are there and this info is true please show me and if I need to be saved please show me.”
That’s it. Something that will take about five minutes a day for 21 days.
Now add them to your prayer list.
[my two cents: isn’t interesting that it is the tone of the doctor that is apologized for. Nothing about the actual word content or the practices by the doctor.]
She says in the video: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
[my two cents: But is not a baby, its an inconvenience. It is imposing a life’s will on to someone who doesn’t want that responsibility. After all, the TENS OF MILLIONS (if not HUNDREDS) is not all because of incest and rape.]
While some critics accused Planned Parenthood of selling aborted fetus parts, which would be illegal under federal law, the group says it only donates fetal tissue to researchers, for no profit.
But there may be other legal issues at play.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter Wednesday to Richards noting federal law prohibits the “alteration of abortion methods and procedures solely in order to obtain fetal tissue.”
Title IV of the Public Health Service Act says abortion providers cannot alter the “timing, method, or procedures” used to terminate a pregnancy solely for the purpose of obtaining tissue.
[my two cents: Yet another NORM brought to you be the democratic party]
[my two cents: You know what just dawned on me. No wonder the chief empty suit and most democrats do not see the exceptionalism of the United States. They are busy destroying the society of the country that once was exceptional. If you are busy legislating debauchery, murder and the such – how could you honestly believe or proclaim that America is exceptional?
We NEED an American Revolution!!! But I know it won’t happen.]
