Who Weaponized the FBI? April 8, 2019

With the release of the Mueller Report we finally have what should be the definitive word: There never was any collusion between President Trump or his campaign and the Russian government.  After 675 days of investigation, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 warrants, and 500 witness interviews nada, zip, nothing but false charges, innuendo, slander, and an obvious smear campaign by the sore losers and their megaphone media.

The beginning of this sordid chapter in American History is almost laughable.  After former Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from his job Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein sends a letter to President Trump recommending he fire DBI director James Comey for his handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.  Then Rosenstein appoints a Special Counsel to investigate supposed collusion between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin because President Trump fired Comey in an attempt to obstruct of justice.  You just can’t make this stuff up.

With the release of Mueller’s report the first act in the silent coup has collapsed.

Now comes the time to pay the piper.  There are increasing cries to investigate the investigators.  It’s high time the American people find out who weaponized the FBI and then used them in an illegal attempt to influence an election and once that failed to overthrow a duly elected president.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R. CA) the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee plans to send eight criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.  Calling the gang-that-couldn’t-shoot-straight “Watergate Wannabees” Nunes said the criminal activity includes leaks of highly classified material and conspiracies to lie to Congress and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court.

Nunes went on to say that five of the referrals “are what I would call straight up referrals… that name someone and name the specific crimes… [which are] lying to Congress, misleading Congress, leaking classified information.”

He also added that “There are three [referrals] that I think are more complicated… We believe there was a conspiracy to lie to the FISA court, mislead the FISA court by numerous individuals that all need to be investigated and looked at that, and we believe the [relevant] statute is the conspiracy statute. The second conspiracy one is involving manipulation of intelligence that also could ensnarl many Americans.”

This is not just a Republican witch hunt in response to the Democrat witch hunt.

Ex-Gov. / Sen. Bob Kerrey (D. NE) says, “Rather than investigating the president further, Congress needs to investigate how the Department of Justice got this one so wrong. If the president of the United States is vulnerable to prosecutorial abuse, then God help all the rest of us.”

Former Harvard Professor and legal expert Alan Dershowitz, a self-declared liberal Democrat, has maintained from the start that Congress needs a nonpartisan commission to investigate the failings of the justice system in searching for a crime that was not found in the Mueller Report.

The collapse of the Mueller investigation hasn’t stopped those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome who infest Congress.  The current smear being perpetrated by the never-say-die Watergate Wannabees and their silent coup is obstruction of Justice.  Since collusion is not a crime and there never was any collusion to begin with how could there have been any obstruction of justice?   If anything it should be obstruction of injustice.

Lying to Congress, leaking classified material, lying to obtain FISA warrants, conspiracy to influence a presidential election, and conspiracy to overthrow the president of the United States: this sounds like a plot from the TV series 24.  All we need is the dramatic music to make it a real nail biter.  If Rep. Nunes starts whispering like Jack Bauer I’m going to move to the edge of my seat.

A Coup Wrapped in a Hoax Inside a Vendetta March 25, 2019

After 675 days of investigation, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 warrants, and 500 witness interviews here are a few things that never happened in the time-consuming, money-wasting, slanderous attempt to erase the results of the 2016 election known as the Mueller investigation:

  1. After endless speculation and daily smears Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and other people whose supposed legal jeopardy was the subject of around-the-clock media speculation in the last year were not indicted.
  2. No one in the Trump campaign or his inner circle was implicated or charged with conspiring with Russia to fix the 2016 election, as the media authoritatively claimed day-after-day throughout the last two years.
  3. The president was not subpoenaed though the almost hysterical pundits of the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party known as the drive-by media assured us he would be.
  4. Though endless hours of speculation centered on the President’s imminent firing of Mueller it never happened
  5. The ceaseless attacks against President Trump disguised as news constantly told us the President obstructed justice by interfering with the Mueller investigation.  However, in a letter to Congress, Attorney General Barr after mentioning he was required to notify lawmakers if any top Justice Department officials ever interfered with the Mueller investigation stated, “There were no such instances.”

Completing an investigation initiated by the CABAL in the Justice Department dedicated to reversing the outcome of the 2016 election, an investigation which did not meet the Justice Department’s own standard for appointing a Special Prosecutor; the presence of an underlying crime, Mueller is finally finished.  Not long after the news broke, Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts said, “The feeling at the White House right now is that this is finally over.”

Unfortunately for those of us who want to get about the business of making America great again this will probably be a yes and a no.   Mueller’s report not recommending any additional indictments doesn’t mean that the Democrats have given up on their eternal Trump-Russia investigation.  Since those who knew there was nothing to this in the first place anticipated this possibility.  This is why the House Democrats jump started new Trump-Russia investigations to ensure it will never be over.  Does anyone doubt such investigations will continue, at least until the 2020 elections?  In reality this has been and is government funded media fueled opposition research and Democrat campaigning for whichever socialist they eventually nominate.

During one of their relentless wall-to-wall bash Trump panels even the dying CNN, nest of the most outspoken of the so-called journalists suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, had to admit this was a “Huge Victory for the President,” and that Trump was “Vindicated.”

Here are few samplings from their less than enthusiastic announcement of their long sought dream: the end of the Mueller investigation.

Their Commander Wolf Blitzer said, “President Trump has won a huge victory.”

Evan Pérez commented, “He’s been vindicated by them.”

The rabidly anti-Trump Gloria Borger agreed, “And then he’s now vindicated, exactly.”  She added, “You know–how do you manage that politically? I mean, we obviously can’t jump the gun here. We have to see what comes out from Barr, and what’s in the report. But if I’m at Mar-A-Lago with the president, as Pamela has been reporting, the lawyers are … that I would be very happy.”

Another of CNN’s trained talking heads Shimon Prokupecz said, “A couple of victories here.  The president did not have to sit down for an interview. They were so concerned about that, because he’d get caught up in lies–and there would be perjury traps. Okay, so that’s now over. No more people being indicted. Sealed, unsealed–no more indictments. Mueller is done. Huge victory for the president.”

The uncompromising off the rails nature of these investigations is exemplified in their incessant demands for President Trump’s tax returns.  He’s been audited by the IRS every year for more than a dozen years.  Does anyone believe if the highly politicized Obama IRS of Commissioner Douglas Shulman and Lois Lerner had found any irregularities in Trump’s returns they wouldn’t have been leaked?  Does anyone in the Democrat echo chamber media ever mention that Nancy Pelosi refuses to make her tax returns public?

So one chapter may be ending but never fear the sequels are here.  It is all about damaging President Trump enough so that he will lose his bid for re-election.  Add the votes of the low-information and indoctrinated by the nightly news sheep to the illegals, the felons, the socialists, and the America Last crowd and the Democrats hope to deliver us to Bernie, Beto, and their Green New Deal brand of Venezuelan worker’s paradise.

Let’s hope there are enough people who’ve swallowed the red pill, had the scales wiped from their eyes, and realize the entire Trump – Russia side show was designed to front for a silent coup and to cover up the only real colluding that took place in the 2016 election.  Hillary colluding with DNC to rig the nomination process against Bernie.  And Hillary’s campaign colluding with Fusion GPS who hired former British spy Christopher Steele to compile a “dossier” filled with fake news and garbage that was all dressed up by the FBI, taken to the FISA Court, and presented as a legitimate intelligence document.   Let’s hope.

Random Thoughts V March 14, 2019

If Planned Parenthood was selling puppy body parts they would be shut down yesterday.

The thirties and forties are a blur with work and family.  The fifties start to slow down and in the sixties you start to get comfortable with yourself, or not.

Before Obama: We had no ISIS, no BLM, No ANTIFA, and no war on cops.

With Obama: We had a no-growth economy we were told was “The New Normal”

Sometimes wisdom is best said with silence.

You may have lost but you are not lost. You are His and no one; nothing can snatch you out of His hand. When there’s nowhere to stand…stand on your faith.

Clinton admitted to using marijuana.  Obama admitted to using cocaine.  Teddy Kennedy killed a girl in a car accident and covered it up.  But suddenly Kavanaugh’s drinking habits 30 years ago are reprehensible to Democrats.

Three democrat senators on the judiciary committee voted not to impeach president Clinton even though:  He committed perjury, obstructed justice, lied about having sex with a White House intern until DNA evidence proved he lied, Almost a dozen women accused him of rape and sexual assault.  But at least there was no political motivation for their political assault on Justice Kavanaugh.

One thing the Presidential alert test did….reveal all the cell phones illegally owned by inmates in prison.

People are poor because of rich people.  And slow cars are slow because of fast cars.

Why are American citizens who want to protect our sovereignty called Nazis and racists while illegal aliens are called Dreamers?

Everyone is the center of their own universe because that’s the only vantage point any of us have.”

When we compartmentalize reality the little chunks seem to slip away like ice floats on a river.  They’re a big deal while they’re here but once they’re gone there’s another in its place to be a big deal for a while.  Maybe that’s why when something happens, even important things I figure, “That’s not such a big deal.”  Because the river is still flowing and I’m looking forward to the ocean.

You get what you get because that’s what you got.  Which is the possessive of Popeye’s philosophical high point, “I yam what I yam an’ tha’s all I yam,” which is the cartoon reflection of the Hippie truism, “It is what it is cause that what it is.”  Which is the modern reflection of Aristotle’s insight of the law of identity: ‘Whatever is, is.”  Which is the verbal expression for the math term: For all a: a = a.

Most people read the headline and make-up the story.

All one can do is all one can do and if everyone would just do that imagine how much would get done.

The difference between junk and stuff: Junk is stuff you no longer want. Stuff is junk you want to keep.

When all is said and done it will all be done just as He said.

God saves us from things we think we need and blesses us with things we don’t know we need.

Irony is lost on the ignorant.

I used to remember that before I forgot it.

Graveyards are filled with indispensable people.

The melting pot has become the smelting pot.  Once we all wanted to become Americans.  Now Americans all want to become some kind of hyphenated – American.  Identity politics and the cult of victimization is Balkanizing America.

The Bible: Read it – Believe it – Live it and watch it change your life

America’s Frankenstein Culture March 2, 2019

Remember the big flap when the undercover video from Project Veritas showed the leaders of Planned Parenthood callously talking about selling parts of aborted children?  This was exposed several times.  One federal judge even ruled that the videos were authentic and not deceptively edited.  Altogether Project Veritas released a dozen videos exposing this monstrous evil.

After the initial shock of the videos the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media or as they are also known: the Propaganda Arm of the Democrat Party went on a rampage attacking the videos and those who made them.  And surprise, surprise, surprise an exhaustive investigation by Planned Parenthood found that despite all the video evidence there were no sales of fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood even though their own executives were the people on the videos talking about selling fetal tissue.  Of course the manufactured results of the cover-up received more exposure than the videos.

Now comes this soul wrenching mind-numbing headline from the best government money can buy, “HHS Extends Contract to Make ‘Humanized Mice’ With Aborted Baby Parts for Another 90 Days.”

That’s right those baby parts that aren’t being sold are being purchased by the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) to conduct experiments funded by our tax dollars.  Which, according to the Hyde Amendment, cannot be used to fund abortion.

What are “humanized mice” any sane person might ask?  These creatures are made by implanting mice with human tissues taken from late-term aborted babies.

What is this all about?  According to CNSNews.com, “The HHS’s multi-million-dollar contract with UCSF that requires the construction of these “humanized mice” creates a demand–driven by federal tax dollars–for tissue taken from late-term aborted babies. According to an estimate it has published on its website, the National Institutes of Health (which is a division of HHS) will spend $95 million this fiscal year alone on research that–like UCSF’s “humanized mouse” contract–uses human fetal tissue.”

The contract specifically requires researchers at UCSF to make two different types of “humanized mice” both of which are “engrafted with human fetal liver and thymus.”

After the Allies conquered Germany and liberated the demonic system of concentration and death camps the NAZI insanity used to kill millions many German citizens denied any knowledge that the Final Solution had been implemented by their own government.  They must have thought this lack of knowledge absolved them of any responsibility for what their government had done.  Allied troops forced German citizens to tour the camps and to view the results of their government’s policies.  After that they could no longer say they didn’t know.

The videos of Project Veritas serve the same purpose for Americans.  We can no longer say we don’t know that children are being slaughtered and their body parts sold.  Has the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave morphed into the Land of the Sleaze and the Home of the Knave?  Have the industry of death and its networks of abortion mills so permeated our society that we can calmly accept them and these Frankenstein laboratories killing babies and perverting God’s creation for profit?

If we do not rise up and demand that this evil stop we become the silent tax paying sheep who not only allow it but also fund it.  Let’s write our Representative in Congress.  Write our Senator.  Write the President.   Demand that this slaughter of the innocents ends.  Demand that the unspeakable evil of selling pieces of aborted children be branded as what it is … a crime against humanity … and that those who profit by this evil are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

We need to speak up now or our silence will bear witness against us.  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

What is the State of Our Union? February 8, 2019

Tags: , , , , ,

America is slipping over a cliff.

And there’s one man locked in mortal battle with the political, judicial, military, and media establishment trying to stop it.

Ever since the election of 2016 the entire establishment has been trying to reverse the vote of those who put President Trump in office.  They’ve investigated and smeared.  They’ve put up road block after road block.

And half the country backs them in their effort.  We’re divided.  One side wants America to be America.  The other side wants a globalist vision of we are the world.  One thing that illustrates the effectiveness of generations of dumbing down perpetuated by government-run public education and the power of a wall-to-wall propaganda megaphone is that so many of the self-anointed hip, the liberal, and the idealistic young are lined up with the establishment to bring down the first leader since 1980 who is actually trying to reverse America’s slide into the dustbin of history.

Their outrage is real.  How dare Trump try to make America great again!  How dare he try to stop the endless importation of low information voters!  America doesn’t belong to its citizens.  They didn’t build that.  Walls don’t work.  Just listen to all the capitalist hating socialists who’ve made millions and billions in our free economy living behind walls telling us this is so.  It’s like Louis XVI leading the mob and trying to send Thomas Paine and Lafayette to the guillotine.  If it wasn’t so serious it’d be funny.  At least maybe we’ll laugh through our tears as the lights go out in the last best hope of mankind.

Watching the votes and the choices of those who want the Trump agenda enacted being disregarded daily by the governing elite and the howling mob of their fellow-travelers is a right now smack-you-in-the-face illustration of the futility of life without God.  If people try on their own to change the world the god of this age fights back.  And in the worldly realm without God this little god, the prince of the power of the air ,wins a lot of battles.

No surprise there, for the sons of this world are wiser than the sons of light.  In other words, “Streetwise people are smarter in this regard than law-abiding citizens. They are on constant alert, looking for angles, surviving by their wits.”  And that’s why Democrats always appear smarter than Republicans.  They’re more disciplined and more focused on their goal of transforming America into a Venezuelan style worker’s paradise, and they never take a step back.  Combined with the fact that at least half of the elected Republicans are RINOs these advantages add up to even when the Republicans win they lose.

But that’s in the world. We who trust in Christ as our Savior, who’ve confessed that Jesus is the Lord and Leader of our life, and believe that God raised Him from the dead may be in the world but we’re not of the world, and we shouldn’t be conformed to its image.

So what is the State of our union with Christ?

Billy Graham taught us years ago that: “The Bible teaches that worldliness is a force, a spirit, an atmosphere of the cosmos that is in opposition to all that is godly and Christian. Its goal is selfish pleasure, material success and the pride of life. It is ambitious, self-centered. God is not necessarily denied; He is just ignored and forgotten.” And that, “The Bible is clear that the world’s inhabitants are either under the influence of this cosmos with its cunning, deception and spell; or they are in Christ and under the direction of the Spirit of God. There is no neutral ground. The lines are drawn by the Bible.”

This hasn’t changed.  And it’s easy to check where we stand in relation to this reality.  In the still of the night as you drift off to sleep what’re you thinking of?   In the middle of the night if you wake up what’re you thinking of?  In the morning when you wake up what’re you thinking of?  These are the times when we’re as removed from our life-swallowing mind-numbing work-a-day-world life as possible.  This is a perfect time to determine whether our mind is focused on Jesus or is it consumed by the things of this world?

If you have a hard time keeping your focus on God in the midst of the trials and tribulations of this vale of tears let me make a suggestion.

Christian radio is something that helps me.  Maybe it would help you?  There are local stations all over the dial, streaming to every devise imaginable.  There’s every type of music from Gospel, to country, from rock to rap.  I can suggest two that work for me.  K-Love which is a national station found on dials from coast to coast and Life 107.1 which is a station heard around the Midwest.  As I said there’re local channels all over and you can easily find one that meets your particular taste.

Pumping that positive faith message into my brain as much as possible helps me stay closer to Christ.  Give it a try.  What’ve you got to lose?  If nothing else you’ll find uplifting music performed by some of the best musicians in the world.

So what’s the state of our union?  Are we moving toward God or away from Him?  That’s the only thing that ultimately matters in this life.  Let’s leave the carnival mirror reflections that make up the worldly life around us and exercise our rights as citizens of Heaven and as the words of an old song tell us:

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,

Look full in His wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,

In the light of His glory and grace.

Dawn of the Debacle December 27, 2018

As my favorite American philosopher, Yogi Berra once said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”  Nevertheless I’m going to take a stab at it.

Are you ready for the night of the long knives?  Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of the Make America Miserable Again crowd have been trying to destroy President Trump by the death of a thousand cuts.  Every day 24/7 their poodle press in the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel has been trumpeting the lies and false accusations of their endless stream of fake news.  They follow the teachings of Joseph Goebbels that “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”    They operate on the wisdom contained in one of Mark Twain’s observation, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”  And the Low Information Voters drink it all in and repeat it Ad Nauseam as their own personal opinions

Teaching political Science and History I have a window into the thinking of those who’ve been raised listening to the Cartel and being indoctrinated in our modem education system.  They grew up with smart phones in their hands, worshipping Al Gore, and came to the age of maturity voting for Bernie.  And from my observations the Cartel and the Democrat Socialists have picked a strategy that works.

Forget about the fact that half the people who should know better have inhaled the same illusionary smoke.  After watching the implosion of the USSR and the destruction of Cuba and Venezuela they still hate capitalism as they frog march themselves into the voting booth to vote for the rope that’ll hang them.   And in the long march from freedom to serfdom coming up behind us is a generation ready to give what they’ve been taught is the revolutionary new idea of socialism a try because they think it just means free stuff for everybody.  If demographics is destiny and education is the seedbed of the future with our porous borders and progressive curriculum we’ve sown the wind and we’re about to reap the whirlwind.

With the election of the blue-collar billionaire we had a chance to maybe turn the ship of state around before we hit the iceberg of socialism, bankruptcy, and military adventurism but the Deep State bureaucratic nomenklatura couldn’t have that.  So they marshalled all their resources and have been working on the aforementioned death of a thousand cuts.  And if the results of the recent midterm election are any indication they’ve accomplished their goal.

They’ve captured the House of Representatives and will soon have the power to investigate until they reach they preconceived conclusions.  Who are these counter-revolutionary street fighters dedicated to overthrowing the results of the 2016 election?  They are the Party that fixed the primaries so the poster child of corruption could defeat the poster child of socialism.  They are the Party that colluded with the Russians to create the Steele Dossier which they then used as the evidence to investigate Trump for colluding with the Russians.  They are the Party that used the security apparatus to try and sandbag their opponent before and after the election.

Here comes the hard part of being a political prognosticator, the prediction part.

Because they are the Party that will find after their exhaustive show trials and prejudiced investigations just as their preconceived conclusions predicted surprise, surprise, surprise President Trump has committed high crimes and misdemeanors.  No matter what they call them charges they will actually be, “We don’t like you and Hillary was supposed to win.”

Though some of the more savvy political savants among the Blame America First crowd realize impeachment will be toxic knowing it will energize Mr. Trump’s base like nothing else could.  They’ll do it anyway.

Though they and their friends in the Fed know if they succeed in tanking the economy which has surged under Trump it will be blamed on them.  Of course they won’t be held accountable by the lap dog media but they will by the work-a-day consumers it will hurt.  They’ll do it anyway.

In spite of all the obvious signs that having people like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters as the face of their party is going open the flood gates for even more middle-class working Americans to wake up and smell the Constitution burning.  They’ll do it anyway.

Like moths to a flame the perpetually angry purveyors of identity politics, culture war, and taking America down a peg or two will overplay their hand.  They’ll push their slow motion coup to its logical conclusion impeaching President Trump.

I predict he will not be convicted in the Senate.  I also predict that two years of Kavanaugh-style hearings projected wall-to-wall by their propaganda arm in the media will walk on the last nerve of the American electorate and we’ll see a red tsunami in 2020.

As Yogi said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”  But then again my favorite American philosopher also said, “The future ain’t what it used to be.”

What is Christmas Without Christ? December 18, 2018

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Politics, Politiocal Philosophy, Religion, Uncategorized.

What have Frosty the Snowman, roasting chestnuts, hippos, hula hoops, and barking dogs got to do with Christmas?   

They may bring warmth to our hearts.  They may bring a smile to our lips.  Or they may make us groan.  Whatever they do to each of us what they all have in common is that they’re glued to Christmas like barnacles to the hull of the good ship lollipop.  They’re the accumulated cultural baggage that increasingly obscures the real meaning of a revolutionary blessed event under the camouflage of a socially acceptable winter break. 

The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel tells us constantly that we now live in a post-Christian America.  They exalt in proclaiming the end of Christ’s dominant influence on Western Civilization.  As a result we’ve descended from a city on a hill to a modern Sodom and Gomorrah.  Our elites call evil good and good evil.   

Ever since the nine black-robed masters of America decreed back in 1962 that God was expelled from school we’ve witnessed the steady degradation of our society.  The coarseness and vulgarity we’re deluged with on a daily basis was unknown in earlier days.  What we call prime time entertainment was once known as pornography.  What were abominations and generally accepted as perversions have become the norm while believing them to be against God’s Word is now considered some type of mental disorder.  The cabal of self-appointed paragons of pomposity that masquerade as educators, politicians, and journalists cap their war against God when they glory in the right of self-interest to sacrifice the lives of the innocent and demand that the government not only endorse it but subsidize it. 

As a natural outgrowth of the city of man’s war against God that defines America’s progressive culture comes the war against Christmas. 

Back in the dream time we used to go to Christmas programs at our children’s schools and listen to the little darlings sing The First Noel, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, and O Come O Come Emmanuel.  Now we listen to them sing songs in foreign languages, or do beautiful arrangements of sounds that don’t even have a meaning intermixed with a few songs about winter, snow, or maybe animals.  It may all be PC but it sure doesn’t have anything to do with the reason for the season. 

Just in case all the tinsel and the twinkling lights have blinded us to what that reason is let me elaborate. 

Christmas is all about Jesus the Christ born as a human so that he could bear the sins of the world, die a substitutionary death in our place, rise triumphantly from the grave and ascend into heaven so that we who believe can live in and through Him.  That’s what it’s all about.  Christmas must be linked to Easter to have any meaning.  I’ve met people who never realized that the Jesus in the manger on Christmas was the same Jesus who hung on the cross on Good Friday.  I did not meet them in the jungles of some remote island but in America with a church on every corner.  This is a clear case of Santa with a coke in his hand winning the advertising debate over the Lamb who takes away the sins of the world.  It may all be PC but it sure doesn’t have anything to do with the reason for the season. 

What is Christmas without Christ?  It’s a worldly hedonistic overly commercialized gift giving/receiving orgasm perpetrated by humanity’s enemy to keep us from knowing that Christ came to set us free, to reconcile us to God, and to make a way for us to live as a new creation in a new creation.   

Not to be Grinch, let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  Let’s enjoy our family and friends.  Let’s celebrate our traditions as we remember Jesus is the reason for the season.  So let’s wake up and smell the frankincense and myrrh for without Christ in Christmas all we have is “mas.”

Election Day 2018 and everything is on the line.  At least as far as the direction this country is going to take America First or Globalism, capitalism or socialism.  Tune in to any one of the talking heads that litter the airwaves and this is it.  This is the BIG one.

As a political science teacher I always tell my students don’t let anyone indoctrinate you.  Don’t let anyone blindly lead you into supporting something you may really disagree with if you knew more.  Study the candidates.  Study the issues.  And then make an informed decision.  I also add one more step.  Ask God who you should vote for.

One side says if the other side wins they’ll make America miserable again.  They’ll put the brakes on an economy ready to go in orbit, erase the border, and unleash the mob.

The other side says if their opponents win they’ll gut social security, close the hospitals, keep illegal children in cages, and continue to confirm judges who will stop common sense gun control and generally bring back slavery.

It’s all a soap opera.  Yes, it makes sense here in a world ruled by sense knowledge.  Yes, it’s important who wins here and now but what about in eternity?  Ten billion years from now will it make much difference if you were a diehard red or a fanatic blue?

I’m not trying to discourage any one from voting.  We should all do our civic duty.  We should all study the issues and then vote our conscious.  As a pastor I’ve always counselled vote for God’s candidate.  Vote for the one who stands up for the things of God.  And remember a vote for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.

These things intrude upon us from a world that doesn’t want to take no.  It bombards us 24/7 from TV, radio, and even our phones.  The voices and the images fill social media, the wall-to-wall news spigots, and anywhere else anyone might care to look.

Being a history junky and a politicalholic I have battled my entire life to get my mind right.  I can easily become obsessed with the History of the Future or current events as some people call it.  Until I was thirty years old that was all I had.  I only believed in what I could see, touch, and feel.  I was ruled by sense knowledge.

But then praise God I met Jesus.  He’d been there all along just waiting for me to notice Him.  Once I did I realized there was no one else I needed to know.  It’s like the Bible.  Once I realized it is God’s Word, His revelation to humanity, the operator’s manual for the planet earth I realized that it was the most important book in the world.  And as a readaholic that’s saying something.

So this morning I wake up on what might be the most important election day of my life and what do I find?

Well, woke up this morning with my mind, my mind stayin’ on Jesus.

Casting Crowns describes and defines our situation well in their hit song Jesus Friend of Sinners:

First they aptly describe our current situation:

Jesus, friend of sinners, we have strayed so far away
We cut down people in your name but the sword was never ours to swing
Jesus, friend of sinners, the truth’s become so hard to see
The world is on their way to You but they’re tripping over me
Always looking around but never looking up I’m so double minded
A plank eyed saint with dirty hands and a heart divided.

Then after more insightful verses that expose who we are and what we’re doing they define what we should do with a question:

Nobody knows what we’re for only what we’re against when we judge the wounded what if we put down our signs crossed over the lines and loved like You did?

Then they offer a prayer:

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers
Let our hearts be led by mercy
Help us reach with open hearts and open doors
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners, break our hearts for what breaks yours.

The inspiration, knowledge, and hope I always gain from Casting Crowns’ songs always leads me back to the place they got it all: the Bible.

We find a story in the Word of God:

The religion scholars and Pharisees led in a woman who had been caught in an act of adultery. They stood her in plain sight of everyone and said, “Teacher, this woman was caught red-handed in the act of adultery. Moses, in the Law, gives orders to stone such persons. What do you say?” They were trying to trap him into saying something incriminating so they could bring charges against him.

Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger in the dirt. They kept at him, badgering him. He straightened up and said, “The sinless one among you, go first: Throw the stone.” Bending down again, he wrote some more in the dirt.

 Hearing that, they walked away, one after another, beginning with the oldest. The woman was left alone. Jesus stood up and spoke to her. “Woman, where are they? Does no one condemn you?”

 “No one, Master.”

“Neither do I,” said Jesus. “Go on your way. From now on, don’t sin.”

We’ll never know until we can ask Him in heaven what Jesus wrote that day in the sand.  But the Pharisees and scholars were attempting to trap Him by using the commandments He came to fulfill.  And he not only fulfilled the old He also gave us a new commandment when He said, “Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”

As we enter the voting booth today remember as important as this is there is something much more important, something of eternal significance.

Another prayer from Casting Crowns might help us focus:

Help us to remember we are all the least of these
Let the memory of Your mercy bring Your people to their knees.

Pray before you vote and listen to God.  If you are His; His voice is ever there guiding and leading you into the paths of righteousness.  If we do what He tells us to do we’ll always make the right choice and remember His guiding will never conflicts with His Word.

May God bless us one and all as we strive to follow Him and may God bless the United States of America.

Want To Buy A Bridge? October 22, 2018

From the “You can’t make this stuff up” Department:

It is beyond me how the Communists, I’m sorry I mean the Socialists, oh excuse me I mean the Democrats are able to peddle the bilge they’re spewing this election cycle.  But I’m sure that a significant segment of the voting public will swear this bilge is rose water come Election Day.   Now if these Soros-Clinton-Pelosi-Waters supporters were knuckle-dragging drooling Neanderthal types I could understand it.  However, I personally know many very intelligent people who prove they’ve had one too many drinks of Kool-Ade by casting their precious votes for the Party of Obama and the new normal.

And now for some anecdotal proof:

I live in a State that is enjoying record high employment, has received the biggest tax cuts in history, has a balanced budget, millions in a rainy day fund and is ranked near number one in education and healthcare.  In response to this the Pelosi Party has a gubernatorial candidate who says people are starving to death in the streets, rotting away on gurneys in the halls of broken down hospitals, and the pining away for the good old days of presidents who bow to kings and a perpetual Great Recession.

Nationally the party of globalism, open borders, and mobs as always promises one thing and plans on delivering another.  They promise to fight for the little guy, protect Social Security, provide health care for all, and rainbows every day of the week.  If given control of the House and/or the Senate they will deliver years of Kavanaugh style show trials and though their leader tells them not to talk about it they will impeach President Trump in 2019.

Currently their propaganda arm in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media foist what they hope is a self-fulfilling prophecy of a huge blue wave on the low information voters.  To facilitate this fever dream and create a spectacle they hope will overwhelm our border agents, detention camps and legal system they’re financing and coordinating an army of gang-age males hiding behind the skirts of women and children.  Marching north after violently storming across Mexico’s southern border carrying the flags of Guatemala and Honduras the publicity flacks of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel tell us over and over these are peaceful hardworking people are peaceful asylum seekers and not the gate crashing pawns we can see tearing down fences and forcing their way into Mexico.

Promising to raise taxes, increase regulations, expand welfare, shut down the oil and coal industries, impeach Kavanaugh and President Trump the campaign slogan for the America Last fellow-travelers should be “Let’s Make America Miserable Again!”  All I can say is if you buy this bilge I’ve got a bridge you can buy right here.
