I always wondered how modern people could be so blind and ignorant as to turn to false prophets and reject the clear words of the Holy Bible.... now I see it every day in Trump supporters!


The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

Christian Trump supporters truly believe the rest of us hate the United States, which is why they hate us even more than they do murderous dictators and communists!

Here are Obama’s political scandals:
The ATF-led “Operation Fast & Furious”
The 2012 Benghazi attack
The Clinton Foundation’s pay-for-play scheme
Uranium One
The Department of Justice’s tracking of journalists, including Fox News’ James Rosen
The Veteran’s Affairs scandal
The Hillary Clinton private email scandal
The IRS targeting of conservative groups
The Solyndra scandal
NSA spying on Americans and the PRISM program, exposed by whistleblowers
Obama’s nuclear Iran deal
Obama’s intervention in Syria and subsequent failure to act on his “red line” declaration
Anything else?
Obama and other top members from his administration have made similar claims since President Donald Trump assumed office last January, despite the overwhelming amount of facts that disprove their outright dishonesty.

Even Obama’s messaging has not been consistent. He admitted earlier this year that his administration “didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.” At that private event, Obama never disputed his administration had scandals, like he did publicly this week.
Many wonder today why the Republican party does nothing to defeat the treasonous
schemes of the Democrats. It is because the pope’s Jesuits have thoroughly
infiltrated the Republican party as well as the Democratic party. Many wonder why
the news media lie so much to support and protect the Democrats. It is because the
pope’s Jesuits have thoroughly infiltrated the news media. The news media and
schools and colleges, with their lies and propaganda, have so conditioned the
people of the country that they are unable to recognize what has been done to them.
Victory for the Jesuits seems very near. The Jesuits are like a cancer that has
pervaded nearly every fiber of the society of the United States. We are being
defeated by the enemy within.

For many years the Jesuits have prevented the United States from developing
additional sources of energy within its own territory. Exploiting the vast oilfields on
the Alaskan north slope, that probably contain more oil than the entire middle east,
is forbidden. New nuclear power plants, the safest source of electric energy ever
discovered, are not permitted. There is no end to the lies people have been made to
believe about Nuclear energy. The environment is used as the club to subdue the
people of the country into going along with this idiocy. Modern technology is able to
develop these sources of power without any damage to the environment. France
gets 80% of its power from nuclear power plants without any problems. Needless to
say, without sufficient energy, the United States will not be able to defend itself. All
the papacy has to do is cut off the oil supply from the middle east.

The United States is now starting to feel the pinch of the energy shortage the Jesuits
have created. People have experienced blackouts over large areas as power is shut
off to stay within the limits of generating capacity. Today, instead of constructing
additional nuclear power plants, some of these plants are being dismantled! Will the
people of the United States be able to wake up in time to prevent the coming
national tragedy?

Not only in the United States is this treachery being perpetrated by the papacy, but
they are secretly at work all over the world to subvert all the nations of the world.

Coal miners earn something like $70,000, yet those that own the mines have convinced the miners that poor people and immigrants will keep them working until they are 70. They seem to forget, Paul Ryan's goal was to raise retirement age to 70, but he took his own retirement at 48!

Worse Than Baltimore
Worse than Baltimore? Trump won't attack ravaged red states because his friends run them

Paul Brandus , Opinion columnist Published 3:15 a.m. ET July 31, 2019

President Donald Trump is right when he says Baltimore’s got problems. Like all big cities, it has crime, drugs, corruption, pockets of poverty and yes, rodents. But it also has wonderful neighborhoods, beautiful parks, a world class university, rich history and a lively, vibrant culture.

Obviously, Trump hasn’t singled out Charm City because he's concerned about it. It's only 40 miles away, but he has never visited as president and hasn't offered to lift a finger to help. Shouldn't presidents want to make things better for all Americans? Not Trump, whose only concern is that Rep. Elijah Cummings, the powerful Democratic chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, believes in the Constitution and its time-honored system of checks and balances — and is using his authority to probe the president and his administration. And half of Cummings' district is in Baltimore.

Or perhaps I’m wrong and Trump really does care. But if that’s the case, why stop at Baltimore? His loud criticism of it can be contrasted with his silence on other places that also have serious problems.

Least educated, most dangerous

The least educated states are, from 46th to 50th: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, West Virginia and Mississippi.

Highest poverty rates (46th to 50th): Kentucky, West Virginia, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi.

Most dangerous (46th to 50th): Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, New Mexico.

Highest share of people on food stamps in 2017 (46th to 50th): Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, West Virginia, New Mexico.

Most dependent on federal aid — i.e., “socialism” (46th to 50th): Kentucky, Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi.

Most polluted (46th to 50th): Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana.

Most people lacking health insurance (46th to 50th): Florida, Georgia, Alaska, Oklahoma, Texas.

What’s interesting is that of the 16 states mentioned in these seven categories, 15 are red states that voted for Trump in 2016. Trump can't mention their problems, because he fears offending people who voted for him.

I find it ironic that Trumpettes always call Democrats snowflakes and basement dwellers when, in fact, most of the white domestic terrorists doing the mass shootings are white racist basement dwelling Trump supporters!

This latest Trump supporting loser in El Paso came from his momma's McMansion to kill innocent people, all minding their own business while shopping at Walmart. He comes from an affluent town and family with all the attached white privilege, but he can't get past his ignorant hatred of those he sees as less than human. Just take a look at this pathetic basement dweller!

One reason why Mitch McConnell is called 'Moscow MItch'


Russian Oligarch Gave Over $1M To McConnell-Linked Campaign Fund Before Midterms

After Len Blatvatnik donated to McConnell, sanctions on a Russian company he has a huge stake in were lifted.

Craig Bouchard, the CEO of Braidy Industries, hoped last summer to build an aluminum mill in Ashland Kentucky. Unfortunately, the major investor that Bouchard needed was Rusal, a large Russian aluminum company owned by billionaire Oleg Deripaska. Rusal was under U.S. sanctions and Deripaska was under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. The U.S. sanctions on Rusal meant it was illegal for U.S. citizens to work with either the company or the person running the company.

Time reports that Bouchard was stuck between a rock and a hard place. He had promised a new mill that would bring prosperity and good jobs to the region, but in order to do so he would have to work with a company tied to the Kremlin. In the end, Bouchard chose to work with Rusal, despite it being potentially illegal.

By April, Bouchard announced that Rusal had bought a 40% stake in the Ashland project for $200 million. While people in Kentucky were relieved, many critics said the deal gave Russia political influence in the U.S. that could be a dangerous challenge to national security.

In the end, Rusal and Bouchard did not have to break any laws, as Rusal freed itself from the sanctions. In order to do so, Rusal lobbied Washington, specifically targeting the Senate majority leader, Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell. Before the midterm elections, major Rusal shareholder Len Blavatnik donated over $1 million to a campaign fund tied to McConnell.

McConnell told reporters that his opinions on Rusal were “completely unrelated to anything that might happen in my home state.”

Blatvatnik said his donations were driven “only by a desire to further a pro-business, pro-Israel agenda,” instead of a pro-Russia agenda.

Rusal said it has only financial motivations. The company said, “Rusal keeps out of politics in all its markets.”

Undoing the deal now would mean a loss of thousands of American jobs.

No longer are private citizens allowed to voice their opinion or support the presidential candidate of their choice!

Union Members Punished for not attending Trump rally!

Pennsylvania union leaders reveal Shell employees who skipped Trump rally lost hundreds in income

Thousands of Shell contractors were in attendance at Donald Trump’s big union speech in Monaca, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean they wanted to be. While it’s no secret that the workers were paid to be there, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on Friday that the consequences of not attending amounted to far more than just the loss of one day’s wages. Employees who wanted to skip the MAGAfest were technically free to do so, but their choice would cause a loss of as much as $700 later in the week.

Those that decided to sit out the event would have an excused absence, the company said, and would not qualify for overtime pay on Friday. The company has a 56-hour workweek with 16 hours of overtime. That means those workers who attended Mr. Trump’s speech and showed up for work on Friday meeting the overtime threshold are being paid at a rate of time and a half, while those that didn’t go to hear the president are being paid the regular rate, despite the fact that both groups did not do work on the site on Tuesday.

Those that did attend were required to be present from 7:00 a.m. until well after 3:00 p.m., with no lunch break allowed, or lunch provided. Additionally, employees were told that they were expected to “promote good will from the labor unions” by Shell, whatever their personal feelings about the current administration might be.
