Trump: Join Me in Honoring the Critical Role of Women in America

Trump: Join Me in Honoring the Critical Role of Women in America

On Wednesday, which is today, which is called International Women's Day, President Trump took time on Twitter to honor and express his respect for women and he gave them credit for the vita roles they play in American society.  International Women's Day has been celebrated since the early 1990's.
Since Donald Trump's inauguration, there have been numerous women in Hollywood that have been protesting Trump's inauguration and have been saying that he will roll back the gains many women have made in the work force for the last few decades.  My response to many of the women critics of Donald Trump is to find out how many women are employed in the Trump Organization and what positions many of them occupy.  I believe that will say something in regards to Trump's view on women contributing to the work force.  I'm certain there are scores of women that are employed at the Trump Organization and I'm certain many of them are in high-level positions.  Trump's oldest daughter Ivanka was one of the top leaders in running the Trump Organization prior to the election last year.  I know Trump's first wife Ivana was a career woman. Some of the comments that many of the Hollywood women have made as well as many leading feminists is just plain nonsense.  I'm not insinuating that Trump doesn't have a problem with women in some capacity.  He's been married three times so that should say something.  And I'm fully aware of the locker room comments he made about women to Billy Bush.  He was in the wrong there.  But to make the allegation that Trump will roll back the gains women have made in the work force the last few decades is nonsense.  He doesn't have a problem with working women.  He has women in his cabinet such as Betsy DeVos and Elaine Chao.  He does support working women.

House GOP Releases Bill Replacing Obama Health Care Overhaul

House GOP Releases Bill for Replacement for Obamacare

Image: House GOP Releases Bill Replacing Obama Health Care Overhaul

House Republicans on Monday released their long-awaited plan to replace Obamacare, which is a bill which would roll back the government's role in health care and possibly leave more Americans uninsured.  The 123-page bill could launch this year's defining battle in Congress.  The plan is expected to cover fewer than 20 million Americans than Obamacare, including residents of state which Trump won in 2016.  The plan would repeal the statute's unpopular fines on people  who don't possess health care coverage.  It would replace income-based premium subsidies in the law with age-based subsidies, which may not provide as much assistance to people with low incomes.  The payments would phase out for higher earning people.

The proposal would continue the expansion of Medicaid to lower-earning Americans until 2020.  After that, states adding Medicaid recipients would no longer receive the additional federal funds that Obama's health care law provides.  A series of tax increases on higher earning people, the insurance industry, and others used to finance Obama's overhaul coverage expansion would be repealed as of 2018.  Popular consumer protections in Obama's health care law would be retained such as pre-existing medical problems, and parents' ability to keep their young adult children on their healthcare coverage until age 26.  Click on the above link from Newsmax to read the full story.

Obama's Intelligence Chief Says No Evidence of Trump-Russian Collusion

Obama's Intelligence Chief Says No Evidence of Trump-Russian Collusion

 Former President Obama and former Intelligence Chief James Clapper

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who was in that position during the Obama administration, denied any knowledge of wiretapping of then presidential candidate Donald Trump last year during the election.  In an assertion receiving considerably less press attention, Clapper also acknowledged that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian.  The Democrats have been accusing President Trump of being in collusion with Russia during the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee last year.  Clapper appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" yesterday, which was a day after that President Trump alleged on Twitter that then-president Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped before the election.  Clapper claimed that the intelligence agencies he foresaw as DNI, the CIA, the FBI Intelligence branch and the National Security Agency didn't conduct any wiretapping activity nor was there a FISA court order for wiretapping.  I believe there's more to this story than what meets the eye.  Click on to read the full story.

CNN is No Longer Fake News; It's 'Very Fake News'

CNN is Very 'Fake News"

President Trump

During his lengthy press news conference yesterday, President Trump was criticizing much of hateful and inaccurate coverage of the major news media.  He jokingly sparred with CNN's Jim Acosta saying that CNN is no longer fake news, but 'very fake news.'  Trump was pointing out that the media will say tomorrow that he's ranting and raving and Trump pointed out he's not doing such.  He stated he was having a good time doing it.

Trump: Flynn 'Treated Very Unfairly' by 'Fake Media'

Former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn

President Trump stated that the 'fake' news media has treated the situation concerning former national security adviser's phone calls with the Russian ambassador, has been very, very unfair in this situation.  Trump stated that he called for Flynn's resignation because he misled the president about the phone calls prior to the inauguration  Trump stated that he believes the people that leaked out this information was from those in the Hillary camp.  Click on the above link to read full story.

Gallup: 62% of Americans Say Trump Keeps His Promises

Gallup: 62% of Americans Say Trump Keeps His Promises

President Trump

According to a recent Gallup poll from February 1-5, 2017, 62% of Americans say that Trump keeps the promises that he's made.  59% believe Trump is a strong and decisive leader.  53% also believe he can make the kind of changes that need to be made.  However, only 44% believes that Trump inspires confidence in the American people.  The characteristics that the American people apply to Trump are reflected in his inaugural address a few weeks ago as well as actions he's taken since becoming president. 

Consequently, many Americans don't view his honesty in a very positive light, echoing the presidential campaign last year between him and his rival Hillary Clinton.  There's a major gap in opinion amongst the Democrats and Republicans concerning Trump's honesty.  91% of Republican voters believe Trump keeps his promises whereas 36% of Democratic voters believe so.  While 94% of Republicans believe Trump is a strong and decisive leader, only 29% of Democrats believe so.  Concerning Trump's honesty only 81% of Republicans believe he is.  9% of Democrats say Trump is trustworthy.  Click on the above link to read the story.

Trump Was Told in January That Flynn Misled Pence

Trump Was Told in January That Flynn Misled Pence

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn

President Trump was told in late January that Michael Flynn, his National Security Adviser, had misled Vice-president Mike Pence concerning contacts he had with a Russian official.  Three weeks later, Flynn was ousted from his position.  Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated the reason for his firing was more driven by Flynn's misleading Pence rather than the legality of his speaking to the Russian official prior to Trump's inauguration.  Spicer stated Trump withheld judgment on Flynn until the White House counsel's office conducted a review of the legal issues raised by the calls.  Some say that Trump's friendly gesture toward Russia deepens questions about the incident. 

Such conversations supposedly breach protocol and violate the Logan Act, which states that private citizens can't conduct U.S. diplomacy.  However,  Flynn had already been tapped to be the next national security adviser in November.  I believe it's a technicality that the left are using to find something to nail Trump with.  I believe part of the reason for Flynn's ouster is because I believe Trump doesn't want an unnecessary distraction from the media with the battle he's already fighting on his immigration ban.  Trump had been conspicuously quiet about Flynn's standing with the administration for several days, then he took to Twitter and posed said the real story is "Why are there so many illegal leaks in Washington?"  I listened to radio talk show host Sean Hannity yesterday and after interviewing certain guests, discussed that those leaks could come from someone in the intelligence community.

Michael Flynn Resigns as National Security Advisor

Michael Flynn submitted his resignation on Monday evening as National Security Adviser.  He was interviewed by the FBI during the first few days of the new Trump administration.  The FBI supposedly didn't believe he was forthcoming concerning his conversations with the Soviet ambassador.  Was he discussing sanctions against Russia?  He at first stated it wasn't and now it's supposedly false.  According to the New York Times, he was discussing sanctions against Russia.  According to law, it would be considered felony if Flynn lied to the FBI concerning his conversation with Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kisylak.  On January 14, Flynn told Vice-president Mike Pence that he didn't discuss sanctions against Russia from the Obama administration in late December. 

According to sources, Mike Flynn was ousted not so much because of the conversations he had with the Russian ambassador, because he wasn't truthful to Vice-president Pence about the nature of Flynn's calls to the Russian ambassador.  Click on the link from the New York Times to read the full story.

Franklin Graham: Planned Parenthood is 'Hitleristic', 'Death is Their Prescription'

Planned Parenthood is Hitleristic

Rev. Franklin Graham on Fox News Channel

Rev. Franklin Graham, commenting on the millions of dollars that are appropriated to Planned Parenthood each year, made the statement that tax dollars shouldn't go to such a 'Hitleristic' organization which "has killed nearly one million babies in the womb every year since 2013."  He added that Planned Parenthood "slaughters little ones in the womb" and that "death is their prescription."  He's right on target, sad to say.  In a February 10th post in Facebook, Graham said that Planned Parenthood received $353 million in a recent annual report.  "Why on earth would Congress give them $550 million in government grants and reimbursements?" 

Graham was mentioning in a recent three year period, Planned Parenthood killed nearly one million babies in the womb, which Graham noted is a great tragedy.  Graham also said that taxpayer dollars withheld from each taxpayers' check should never be used to fund such 'Hitleristic operations".  Why do they want to go under the guise of a health clinic and slaughter the unborn, (emphasis added)?   He said conservative lawmakers in both the Democratic and Republican parties should stand together, do the right thing and end this wholesale slaughter of human life.  The Republican controlled House of Representatives, led by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has promised to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood during the next reconciliation bill to fund the government.  I have a difficult time foreseeing that happening.

What needs to happen is during next year's primary during the mid-term Congressional election, we need Republican candidates running against RINO's such as Paul Ryan and all the other incumbent Republicans in Congress next year.  Congress needs a clean sweep.  The leadership we have in Congress are traitors and many of them are anti-God and anti-life.  Those incumbents needs to be thrown out of office.  Click on the above link to read the story.

New Orders by Trump Make Law & Order a Priority

New Orders by Trump Make Law & Order a Priority

Jeff Sessions became the new attorney general as the U.S. Senate narrowly confirmed him on Thursday.  With him being sworn in, the Justice Department is supposedly being revamped and Trump announced new orders to make law and order a priority.  He had written a series of executive orders aimed at fighting crime and drug trafficking and protecting police officers.  One executive order announced Thursday directs the Justice Department to define new federal crimes and increase penalties for existing ones, to protect federal and local officers from acts of violence.

Another executive order is to create a task force aimed at reducing violent crime.  Another executive order is aimed at dismantling international drug cartels.  Click on the above link to read the rest of the article.

Trump: Zero Tolerance Policy of Acts of Violence Against Law Enforcement

President Trump

As part of his plan to fight crime and acts of violence against law enforcement, President Trump made the statement that the wall along the southern border will be a huge help and implementing a zero tolerance policy against acts of violence against law enforcement.  He said that the wall is being designed right now and that he was serious about it, he told sheriffs and police chiefs on February 8 in a speech of the Major Cities Chiefs Association in Washington, D.C.  Trump stated the wall can be effective if built properly.  He said go ask Israel about the walls in their country.  Trump said he will give the police officers the tools they need to fight crime in our major cities. 

Trump also made the point using Dallas as an example that there were police officers targeted for execution.  Twelve were shot and five were killed in protecting our people in these cities.  It's a travesty.  The link from will fill you in all the details.

Three Lines of Truth in Scripture

There are three lines of truth that run throughout the scripture.  They are (1) salvation truth, (2) church truth, and (3) kingdom truth.  All these truths must be distinguished from one another or otherwise you can become confused.  Last week we started out giving the introduction to the subject of Hermeneutics which is the science of Biblical interpretation.  The Bible says in II Timothy to rightly divide the word of truth.  If you don't, then there will be much doctrinal confusion. 

Salvation truth is manifested throughout the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.  There has always been only one way to save sinners and that's through the cross of Calvary. Everything that man did in the Old Testament, they always looked forward to Calvary in faith.  There has never been any other method of salvation than through Calvary.  Hebrews 9:26 "For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world; but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."  I Peter 1:20 "Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you." 

Church Truth

Church truth is only found in the New Testament and is found primarily in the Pauline Epistles.  The church is a hidden mystery in the Old Testament.  The Old Testament believers didn't see what we see.  They knew nothing of the church.

Kingdom Truth

Just as salvation truth is run throughout the Bible, so is kingdom truth.  God has always had the intention to set up his kingdom in this world one of these days.  The Psalms are full of kingdom truth.  So are many of the Lord's parables.

Trump Seizes on Ommission in Court's Travel Ban Ruling; Plots Next Move

Trump Seizes on Ommission in Court's Travel Ban Ruling

Image result for trump seizes on omission in court travel ban ruling          President Trump

Since Friday morning, President Trump has been making note of the major omission concerning the travel ban ruling.  The writer, Brookings fellow and Lawfare editor-in-chief skilled over a key part of the United States code on "inadmissible aliens" which Trump recited on Wednesday in defense of his immigration restrictions. 

The statute reads, "Whenever the President finds that the entry of any alien or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens, or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate." 

Normally, in a case of this magnitude, the courts would give deference to the President on matters of restricting immigration but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals didn't view this as unreviewable.  Click on the link from to read the full story.

Appeals Court Upholds Suspension of Trump's Immigration Order

Appeals Court Upholds Suspension of Trump's Immigration Order

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, unanimously upheld a temporary suspension of President Trump's executive order which temporarily restricts travelers from seven Muslim nations that are hotbeds of terrorism.  The executive order issues a 90-day pause on all immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, and Somalia on January 27.  The order banned all refugees for 120 days and it imposed an indefinite pause on Syrian refugees.  Judge James Robart , of the Federal District Order in Seattle, issued a temporary restraining order on Trump's executive last weekend after the states of Washington and Minnesota sued.  Attorneys from the Justice Department appealed Robart's ruling arguing that the president's executive order gives him the authority to place restrictions on people coming into this country.  The case could head to the Supreme Court.
