Trump Surprises with GOP Kumbaya Endorsements

by FOXNews.com  |  published on August 6, 2016


Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump endorsed three top GOP officeholders — House Speaker Paul Ryan, Arizona Sen. John McCain and New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte — for re-election Friday night after declining to do so earlier this week.

Trump announced his endorsements at an event in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin four days before the Speaker faces challenger Paul Nehlen in a primary election.

Appearing to read from a prepared statement, Trump called Ryan “a good man” and “a good guy.”

“We will have disagreements,” Trump said. “But we will disagree as friends and never stop working together toward victory and real change.”

“I need a Republican Senate and a House to accomplish all the changes we have to make,” added Trump, who also said “my 80 percent friend is not my 20 percent enemy,” a phrase often attributed to Ronald Reagan.

    I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT EVERYONE!!!! I have been thinking about these polls. I am convinced that Hillary is rigging them! She is rigging them to make the public think they want to vote for a winner…HER!! Trump’s crowds are ten times as large as Hillary’s crowds. It just doesn’t add up. The biggest thing of all is the social media is what blows the polls to bits. If you will go to conservativetribune.com,, you will see a vast difference. The Internet is a true blend of America. She cannot rig that. She is sick PHYSICALLY and it is a sickness that WILL affect her mind and judgment. We must get out there and convince people to vote for him. Personally, I have loved the guy since he came on the national stage. I agree with him on virtually everything. He speaks conservatively and I do not understand how anyone can let go of any morals they MAY have and vote for Hillary. How can they not care she does felonious things? Has America degenerated that much? We used to be a country of good morals, for the most part. We raised ourselves above the barbarians of other countries, but now we have barbarians of our own. Please, God, let the good people overtake the barbarian politicians. Hillary and her minions are just plain EVIL! We must convince America of that. I love this country and I hope all of you do, too. Let us try our best to keep it so that we can have our freedoms back!

    jnora…re; “Please help me. I don’t have the strength, the emotional strength, to deal with such a monstrous man”..

    Answer: This might qualify a “tough love”, but because I value our friendship, I’ll take the chance.

    So my answer is NO!…while I can confront him, all that that does is allow you not to.

    Jnora, my friend, by responding to him you constantly leave yourself wide open. You are telling him where your sensitive buttons are, and thus, he pushes those buttons.

    Frankly, there are those who act like adolescents or cranky, old, impotent, disappointed old men…angered by incontinence…I don’t even know if AD is as such.

    But as long as you continuously attempt to have a meaningful conversation with anybody, including ” irritables”, who constantly choose to use your inputs as an avenue to insult you…then you will always come out on the short end of the stick!

    So, as I see it, your best options are:
    1. Ignore and MOVE ALONG without them, and ignoring them
    2. Send them a direct prayer asking God to bless them, but one that excludes judging them
    3. Offer a truce

    My friend, as long as any of us have opinions, we will encounter those who have different opinions, sometimes crude and insulting, , even on the same subject.

    There are many ways to handle Satan, if this is the case, but the best is to laugh at him, and recognize that he is insignificant…and then move alone.

    Your words aren’t going to have any affect…but I often laugh my ass (blip) off of those who prove themselves as agents of Satan.

    I don’t wish to be overly tough here…but I would encourage you to …(and I ask your forgiveness beforehand for my earthiness here)…tell him to kiss your ass!…that you don’t have time for him!

    Otherwise. You will always be his victim!

    I’m sure God would forgive you for your descriptive verbal instructions…:>)

    We still love you kid…

    • jnora

      Well, Downdraft, I should not have asked you or others to do my dirty work. I am just going to flush my dirty work down the toilet. I have tried #2 and #3, so I will go with #1 on your list. I am going to totally discount him and not answer, or be distressed by, his untruthful, rantings. They don’t even make any sense. Sometimes, it seems like he is the spokesman for Satan. Therefore, due to your wise assessment of the situation and your tough love, I will check in occasionally, but I will not let this rule my life. I am what I am and I am pleased with it. I am glad I am a Christian and am not afraid to tell people that, whatever their response. I simply will not respond to him, if I even read his laughable responses to people. Eventually, everyone will feel the same way about him and just discount his posts. Thank you for your tough love, Downdraft. If there is one thing in my life that I do NOT need, it is someone like AD. What a scourge he is on the lives of people that he touches!

  • Dan

    Trump did what he had to do. I like the article mentioning that he had to “read” off of a prepared statement. Geee…..and Barack Hussein Obama has never read off of a prepared statement? Trump is criticized when he does and criticized when he doesn’t. The media stinks! NEVER HILLARY!

  • CharlieSeattle

    Trump, that is a BullShyt betrayal! Ryan is a f%#kin RINO.

    The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan and his sister Nancy Pelosi.

    Last December, these five pushed through a horrible Omnibus spending bill to fund the government through next September that amounts to a betrayal of American voters, especially on immigration matters.

    Where do I begin to condemn this? I’ll start with GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan. It didn’t take long for Ryan to break all his promises on immigration, did it? When he was running for Speaker last fall, Ryan promised he would not bring up immigration bills that did not have the backing of a majority of Republican House Members. Yet as soon as he got the chance, Ryan snuck several huge immigration giveaways into the Omnibus spending bill Congress approved.

    It goes further:
    »Nearly QUADRUPLES the number of H-2B low-skilled foreign workers allowed in this year. This could raise the total of these workers this year from 66,000 to 264,000.

    Not only that…
    »FUNDS a large increase in Syrian and other refugee resettlement in this country. Instead of a timeout and a full security review, Congress handed Obama everything he wants.

    »FUNDS Obama’s catch-and-release policy that virtually stops deportations.

    »FUNDS Sanctuary Cities, so that cities like San Francisco that refuse to turn over jailed illegal aliens to the feds will face no cut in funding.
    »MAINTAINS tax credits to illegal aliens in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit. That is, if a family is poor enough, they not only pay no income tax, the government pays THEM.

    Yes, that includes illegal aliens! Also, Congress continues to allow illegal aliens to claim child tax credits on their tax returns.

    »FUNDS the continued relocation into America of the unaccompanied minors who are marching across the border into Texas and states. The numbers of these crossing the border is way up again this year.

    Even with all these outrages I’ve mentioned, there are still MORE terrible things hidden in the Omnibus bill, which passed both the House and the Senate. A hopeful sign is that 95 House Republicans joined with 18 House Democrats, and 26 Senate Republicans joined with 6 Senate Democrats to vote NO on this monstrosity.

    Yet, most Republicans and most all the Democrats voted yes, and it passed. Their complicity in this sell out is the real threat to the Constitution and Americans that want jobs and security.

    ………………….Jeff Sessions/Pence 2016
    …………………………………….Paul Nehlen 2016

    Do you believe the endorsements? He’s showing them what a team player looks like! They can hang down their heads and cry! My wife and myself voted, early here in Arizona. To fire McCain!!

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    Kumbaya Endorsements? Don’t be too sure about that. This is/was a good business move on Trumps part. It is a win, win thing for him. People tend to forget that he is first a businessman, and not a politician.
    The three RINO politicians, were playing politics, this is their method of begging. They know that Trump will be the next president, they need him, more then he needs them.
    So Trump holds out, they go into panic mode, the media spews all kinds of garbage, meanwhile, the deal maker is making deals. So then, if these three RINOs actually win their elections, then just who owns who?
    Trump has these three clowns right where he wants them. If they try to back track on him, if they don’t do the job[s] that they are supposed to do, if they try to mess with him, or cause him any kind of problems, then guess who gets done? hint, its not Trump.

    • Bonnie Schulte

      You are so correct..I think it means keeping your enemies close, where he can keep tabs on them. Holds true for friends too, I think.

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        yup, agreed

    • jnora

      I have a feeling that Trump has a huge October surprise that he is keeping to himself. He does have an ace up his sleeve, I can assure you. He doesn’t seem too worried about losing, whereas, Hillary does look like she is running scared.

      • jnora

        Did anyone see Hillary’s “seizure”? I sort of assumed that it was doctored or it would be on TV. UNTIL I saw the look on the face of the curly-headed reporter when she reacted when it first happened. She jerked back and really looked scared. Could it be that Hillary was able to keep it off the news? I couldn’t believe that. Anyone have any comments on that?

  • ONTIME

    The price for seeking the POTUS is you will have to become a politician to be in the club…….RINO etiquette demands….

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      it is a little more then just that.

  • CaptTurbo

    What the hell is Trump thinking? I wouldn’t pi$$ on those people if they were on fire!

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      It was a smart business move on Trumps part

      • CaptTurbo

        Let’s hope so. I’m just not accustomed to him doing smart things so I’m nervous.

      • jnora

        His business acumen is going to start showing and Hillary will not know what is hitting her.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          agreed

          • jnora

            Trump doesn’t seem flustered at all! Knowing the way he hates to lose, he must know lots that we don’t know. I am convinced that he has an ace up his sleeve that will devastate Hillary…one that she cannot connive her way out of…wouldn’t that be great? Hope it isn’t, however, something that will irreparably harm the U.S.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            I agree, and I do not think that Trump would deliberately do anything to harm the U S.

          • jnora

            What I meant is that what he knows about Hillary being something that would harm the U.S. He would never do anything to harm the U.S. He truly loves this country. Sorry if I wrote if in a confusing way.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          good news, it has begun;
          “The poll, released on Friday and conducted between July 31 and Aug. 4 , found Clinton with 42 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 39 percent among likely voters. However, the margin of error was 3 percent, meaning that her lead was statistically insignificant.”
          From Reuters.

          • jnora

            Who knows who on earth they are polling anyway? Just look at the size of the crowds. That has to be some sort of barometer, doesn’t it?

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            that is true, Trumps crowds have been full at every event.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            Not too worry, the polls are rigged, and here is some proof.

            Facebook:

            Trump: 10,174,358 likes.
            Clinton: 5,385,959 likes.

            Nearly twice the number of people that “like” Clinton, like Trump.

            Even more, take a look at how Trump does when he posts a Facebook live stream video:

            Trump Live Stream Post — 21 hours ago: 135,000 likes, 18,167 shares, 1.5 million views
            Clinton Live Stream Post — 25 hours ago: 11,000 likes, 0 shares, 321,000 views

            Even worse for Clinton, the top comments on Clinton’s Facebook posts are often from Trump supporters, whereas the top comments on a Trump post are regularly Trump supporters, according to The Truth Division.

            That doesn’t look good for Hillary at all.

            Twitter:

            Trump: 10.6 million followers
            Hillary: 8.1 million followers

            Not only does Trump beat Clinton on these numbers alone, The Daily Caller reported that researchers found that 70 percent of Trump’s Twitter followers are real supporters with 90 percent having a history of voting.

            According to the Washington Examiner, 41 percent of Hillary Clinton’s “followers” on Twitter are not real people.

            YouTube Live Stream:

            Trump: Averages 30,000 live viewers per stream
            Clinton: Averages 500 live viewers per stream

            Trump gets 5,900 percent more eyeballs on the screen than Clinton.

            Instagram:

            Trump: 2.2 million followers
            Clinton: 1.8 million followers

            Trump beats the Clinton machine once again where Clinton should do well, since it’s got lots of pictures and not much substance — perfect for a Clinton supporter.

            Reddit:

            Trump: 197,696 subscribers
            Clinton: 24,429 subscribers
            Hillary for Prison: 55,228 subscribers

            Not only does Trump have more subscribers, more than twice as many people subscribe to “Hillary for Prison” than just the Clinton page.

            The hacked Democrat National Committee emails released by WikiLeaks proved that the Clinton camp has to actually pay people to support her online — Trump supporters actually want to follow him on social media.

            These statistics easily refute the biased media and rigged polls that Trump is up against.

            Clinton and her cronies are afraid of the support Trump garners, which is why they resort to dirty tactics like this.

            Trump has the support of the people and in November we’ll see just how strong that is.

            The above is as of today, August 8 2016

          • Arizona Don

            Thank you jnora I have been saying that for months now ever since I went to a Trump rally here in Fountain Hills, Arizona. The rally I went to was outdoors and space was not limited. We had tickets and went about four hours early thinking of course that was plenty of lead time. It was not. Upon our arrival we had to park about a mile (maybe a little farther) away. We walked to the park where it was being held and discovered the line to get in was about a mile or so long. I was amazed. So we decided to just set and watch from a distance of perhaps 50 or 60 yards away in the park on the side of a grade where visibility was great. I would guess there was at least thirty-five thousand (35000) or so there when it started and protestors had blocked two of the three roads leading to the park. Most people did not know about the third way because it crossed the Indian reservation. Most of my family who also live here in the valley did not make it because of the blockage of the highways. Otherwise there may have been over forty thousand easy. The liberal media (TV) did not even report on it but did report on Bernie’s crowd of three thousand. The local Newspaper (Arizona Republic) reported the crowd to be “maybe” at the most 15 thousand. The Republic was bought out by USA Today (Gannett) some years ago and the paper became a very liberal rag since.

            I had been to rallies before but never saw crowds like Donald Trump garnered I was absolutely amazed. I even wrote a short column for a local newspaper describing what I had seen. To this day I have never even heard about anything like that. I suspect I never will again.

            Consequently, you are very correct in you suspicion. They refused to report accurate numbers at his rallies and I’m reasonably certain the same is, at least to some degree, the same on the polls. All of this corruption just underlines the need for an outsider like Donald Trump. Without someone like Donald America may very well be history in our lifetime. I like many other vets who lost friends in Nam are very sad about what is happening to this once great nation. These democrats are becoming disgraceful at least. I cannot understand how or why they would throw away all this nation has done for so many for these government handouts. Despicable!

            In the final analysis they have to somehow degrade Donald’s influence or hillary cannot win in November. Therefore do not believe anything negative you hear right now for most is propaganda lies. They will stop at nothing to stop Donald Trump. Personally I have a tendency to think if things continue on the current path America will become involved in a civil uprising. I pray it does not but it is becoming more likely daily.

  • justinwachin

    This is probably a good move on Trump’s part. This has not been a good week for Donald. He needs to do two things: tell people why Hillary is unfit to serve as president and allow people to become comfortable with the idea of having him as president.

    Although Hillary has done well this week by setting back and watching Donald Trump shooting himself in the foot, the fact remains she is corrupt and incompetent. We can’t forget that she will do long term damage to our nation if she gets to replace three or four Supreme Court justices.

    • jnora

      I heard someone on Fox today have the best comeback for Obama when he was saying that Trump was unfit to become president. This guy said that talking about unfit, we now have a president that thinks we have 57 states instead of 50!!!! That is a touche moment for sure.

    It is possible that the polls have been RIGGED so that when the VOTER FRAUD steals the election for Hitlery, no one will be surprised or demand an investigation. It makes NO DIFFERENCE. Either way, this is set up for HILLARY to win.

        Now you can gloat all you want. Clinton is TERRIBLE.
        Trump is almost like her.
        And you? Just defending the wicked of the world, because of YOUR “realistic” and “pragmatic” and compromising way of life.

    Sometimes things we do not agree with has to be accepted.
    If Trump wants to eliminate the corrupted Liar Witch, he has to wash his mouth with soap sometimes.
    Otherwise if the left wins, your country will be a Communist country and we all will cry help if it happens.

    • ADRoberts

      IF the left wins? ARe you kidding. The polls are already setting the stage for massive fraud so that WHEN she is declared winner, there will be no investigation.
      The elite are POWERFUL and they don’t leave anything to chance., Trump was and is her Good Friend. And watch as he now backs off on attacking her for all the vile things she has done. Just like Romney basically let Obama have a WALK in 2012.
      So much that she has done wrong. And so little done to her or even said about her.
      YOu think the FBI was fixed. SO WILL BE THE ELECTION.

      • Anouk

        Well ADRoberts, your post is certainly very pessimistic but not so wrong indeed. I believe Hillary Clinton is protected by an extremely powerful elite who are not for the We the People but only for themselves and their own greedy purpose. Whatever they are part of the big Wall Street money or the small hand out of people expecting free stuffs or else…
        We just can hope for a reverse of this scary situation of the corruption and lies and like in the fairy tale the good people would be rewarded and the bad people would be punished.
        But…Of course this is just a dream until it becomes a nightmare.
        What should true Americans do to stop this corruption and this hypocrisy which are destroying the Great America.
        What should we do to stop the Muslim traitor in the WH who is in full speed in destroying this country.
        And finally, what should we do to stop these 2 crooks the Clintons to move back to the White House to steal more from American people.
        I wish I have an answer. Do you?

        Since you are so against Trump, did you every stop to think the endorsements of the three, might just seal their fate in being not reelected???? There are so many that hate Trump, as you love to point out, it might register with certain ones NOT to vote for the three, because it would make Trump appear even more horrible than some already perceive him. Therefore they would vote for anyone but those three???? That would be a vote against Trump and allow a democrat to get into those seats.

        Sen. Ted Cruz told conservatives at the Republican National Convention to “vote your conscience.”

        Republican strategists linked to establishment figures like Jeb Bush are leaving the GOP because they can’t bring themselves to vote for Donald Trump.

        Elected Republicans, cowed by the media, are piling on Trump in defense of Khizr Kahn.

        And Marvin Bush, brother of George W. Bush and Jeb Bush, has endorsed Gary Johnson for President because he “wants to have a conscience.”

        But pastor Carl Gallups, author of “Be Thou Prepared” and a prominent Christian supporter of Republican nominee Donald Trump, suggests the real moral burden lies with those who refuse to oppose what he believes is the frightening candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

        “Will my conscience allow me to act in a manner so that Hillary Clinton will win the presidency and thus destroy this nation and the future of my children and grandchildren?” asked Gallups rhetorically. “That’s the real question for all of these people talking about their ‘conscience.’ Everyone else is going to have to live with the consequences of all of those who simply opt out of this election by not doing what they can to stop Hillary Clinton.”

        Gallups recently appeared on The Jim Bakker show to explain what he said was the critical importance of Christian participation in politics. He was critical of those who said Christians should stay out of the political process.

        “We’re citizens and we have a right to be a part of the political process but more than that, we have a responsibility to be a part of all of that,” he said.

        Gallups suggested many pastors have been convinced, incorrectly, they don’t have the right to speak out about political issues from the pulpit. The leader of Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Florida said the difference between “political: and “spiritual” issues is often overstated.

        “Pastors have been brainwashed, not all pastors, but a ton of them have been brainwashed or intimidated into believing that they can’t stand in their pulpits and say, ‘Thus sayeth the Lord,’” said Gallups. “Regardless of what the government says about it.

        “That’s the dirty little trick that’s been played on the church, the pervasive politically correct atmosphere. Let’s take an issue like abortion – is that not a biblical issue? That’s a biblical issue, that’s a deeply spiritual issue. It goes to the demonic. But the government has stepped in over the decades and said this is a political issue. And we always hear the phrase ‘separation of church and state.’”

        Things are falling apart. Terror could strike anywhere. Are you and your family ready? “Be Thou Prepared” by Carl Gallups, available now in the WND Superstore.

        Gallups argued Christians need to understand they are not electing a pastor but someone who will set policies for the nation. The best they can hope for, said Gallups, is to have a leader who can provide space for Christians to promote their faith and create a revival.

        “We need people who love America and love the Constitution,” said Gallups. “We need people who understand America’s history and its foundation, who love the rule of law. And who will protect that, because if that’s in place, then we are free to do what we’re supposed to do. It’s not the president that’s supposed to be preaching the Gospel, it’s you and me. But we can’t do it if we have people in power who are constantly holding us down and trying to crush us out of existence.”

        Gallups told WND that is precisely what Hillary Clinton is trying to do. He urged Christians to understand the dire consequences which will result if another President Clinton gets to determine the Supreme Court.

        “These are just the facts – Hillary Clinton would replace Justice Scalia with another liberal, perhaps even ultra-liberal justice,” he said. “This devastating maneuver would give the ‘progressives’ a 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court. And that doesn’t count the times that Justice Kennedy might vote with the liberals (as we have seen him do on several occasions), giving them a 6-3 majority decision.

        “And don’t forget: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 83. She has had numerous and serious health problems, including pancreatic and colon cancer, and heart problems. Justice Breyer is 78. Justice Kennedy is 80.”

        Gallups said the ironic result of Christians sitting out of the election because of “conscience” could be the end of America itself.

        “It is entirely within the realm of possibilities that the next president could nominate up to four justices to the Supreme Court in the next few years,” Gallups warned. “If that president happens to be Hillary Clinton, because millions of Christians ‘couldn’t vote against their conscience’, she would seal a far-left activist Supreme Court for many decades to come. And don’t forget, she will be appointing numerous lower federal court justices on top of that! America as we have known it would be toast. Plain and simple. And the end would come like a flood.

        “Our nation would be ruled by unelected and largely unaccountable far-left judges. An uncooperative legislative branch would be ignored, as Hillary’s government would merely rely upon liberal judicial fiat for its law.”

        Gallups cautioned Americans against assuming the Constitution would protect their rights, as the Supreme Court has shown it is willing to radically reinterpret the supreme law of the land.

        “If you have a Hillary Clinton Supreme Court, for starters, many of your First Amendment rights would be gone,” Gallups said of the consequences. “Your right to bear arms would be ancient history. Whatever privacy rights you have left now will also evaporate. Government intrusions and atrocities, all committed with the Supreme Court’s sanction, will sweep down upon us. Look what has happened, even without a liberal majority on the Supreme Court. Listen to what Hillary is openly and currently boasting about doing should she become the president. Her agenda is evil – and it is clear.”

        Gallups urged Christians to examine their conscience in a different way. He asked believers to really ask themselves if they are willing to inflict such a fate on their fellow Americans and fellow Christians.

        “Do you really want to take this chance?” he asked. “Do you really want a president that couldn’t even pass an FBI background check to be employed as an agent? Do you really want Bill Clinton back in the White House and thrust onto the world scene as a world leader? Do you really want all the Clinton baggage we were so glad to see leave the White House years ago simply step back in for four or, perhaps, eight more years?”

        Gallups told Jim Bakker he doesn’t believe Donald Trump will somehow save the country by himself. But he said as a Christian the stakes are too high to do anything but stand with the Republican nominee.

        • ADRoberts

          Kahn has now been debunked as a fraud. But the media will not cover it.
          And you, just like 95% of American are getting your PROPAGANDA from the media, including Fox.
          So it remains. Gallups does not trust God enough to lead Christians to WRITE IN Ted Cruz. And for that, we will be subject to God’s judgement.
          And so will Gallups.

          I could not read all your junk.
          Just know this. The Bible prophesies end times. And one of those things is a set of events that will be so bad that no one will be able to solve the problem ANd then ONE will step forward and solve all the troubles.
          He is the antichrist.
          ANd then we will start the end.

  • A natural born American

    I don’t want Ryan. Period! I’ve lost so much that I can never get back since he’s been selling us out. Nor McCain! There’s no freakin way Trump is going to ‘reel’ those two asswipes in; they have done more to further obama’s and clinton’s agenda than all the democrats combined!!! They are both total sellouts. Decent, intelligent, hard working people I know living in NH aren’t very happy with their elected officials either so maybe Kelly Ayotte should go too. Their lives have become much more difficult since rino’s betrayed their campaign promises — just like obama did.

    • Wingedgodd3ss

      I too hope Paul Nehlen gets elected instead of Ryan.

    • ADRoberts

      So Trump, the “outsider” is now endorsing the very worst of the INSIDERS. lol I told you so. ANd the polls indicate that he is WAY behind. Surprise? Not at all. Either Americans are morally bankrupt or they are voting their pocketbook and want to keep the FREE stfuff going until the dollar collapses under the weight of DEFICIT spending.
      The other possibliity is that the POLLS are false and are preparing the American mind for massive voter fraud that they will not question since the polls indicated she was going to win.

      Folks, they are NOT stupid. Just very very wicked.

      • A natural born American

        I’m still voting for Trump. If anyone can get the asswipe rinos to honor their promises to their constituents it’s Trump. But I’d much prefer the opposing republican candidates who seem to have been more loyal to their conservative constituents be elected in their stead. That way Trump can focus his attentions on fixing America rather than having to waste time dealing with temper tantrums from all the naughty little boys and girls in congress who got what they wanted and have decided it wasn’t enough — just in case the grass might look greener on the other side. It never does though unless you’re living in the desert. Which might explain McCain if only he hadn’t turned into a songbird all those years ago.

  • Thinker

      I tend to trust all those vets who were POW’s at the same time McCain was who call him ‘songbird’. He and his family and friends seem to be the only ones who say otherwise. Hell even the Vietcong called him ‘songbird’. Why is that? Seems only one person survived to vouch for his honor. Him. If there are any more out there I can’t recall ever hearing from any of them over the past 40+ years.

            Such a bright lady. And so much support from everyone.
            Now bright lady. Cruz has a CONSERVATIVE rating of 97%. He refused to compromise with the very RINOS that Trump just now endorsed. IF he had become President, he would have FORCED Congress to curb the massive spending. So you, in all your wisdom, want to argue that we shoujd exclude a real conservative because the RINOS in the Senate don’t like him.
            lol LOL Laughing out loud.

          Maybe he’s hoping the rumors will go away once nobody’s around to remember the truth. It’s NOT going to happen, McCain.

They all deserve at least that much from those of us who knew/know them even though we weren’t there alongside them.

            I admire him ONLY because he was a POW and served our country! When he first went into office he was alright, but the system got to him and he sold his soul like most, and people are now about through with him and his butt kissing of Obama, and he’s now on the verge of losing his seat, the last I seen he was losing his re-election!

            I wasn’t ever going to answer another one of your posts, AD. I don’t know how my son in VA is going to vote because he hasn’t spoken to me in almost 2 years. As you will recall because you made a very insensitive comment to me about it, my only other child committed suicide, so I guess he won’t be voting. I would surmise that he would vote for Trump, though, because he was a big 2nd Amendment person.Now, just leave me alone. You have me crying.

          • ADRoberts

            I reminded you that you do not have a record of success. You should reconsider your adamant belief that you have your life together. YOU DON”T. And if you don’t like that, then consider that both your sons have rejected you. And it is not because you are living your life as a servant of Jesus Christ. It is because in all things and in all ways, you demand to be in TOTAL control.
            And in case you did not get it, the DESIRE for control, to be LIKE GOD, is the basis of all sin. When you serve God, you DIE to self and give control TO HIM.
            If your crying will bring you to repentance and acknowledge that you NEED God to be in total control of your life, it will be a good thing.
            Now as to Trump, Clinton, Ryan, and the entire government. DO YOU TRUST GOD.
            Can you even look at the Lord’s Prayer with just TWO vital parts.
            1. Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors
            2. Thy WILL be done.
            IF that is center to your life from now on, you WILL be accepted by God but not the world. Just as I am NOT accepted by this world. Guess what? I fully expected for the wicked of this world to reject me.

          I have news for you. God and Christ have NOTHING to do with Trump. You had all the signs. He is vile in EVERY way. So why, when you have all the evidence that he was lying, that he is still a liberal, that he has NO IDEA of what it takes to be a Christian and yet CLAIMS HE IS ONE.

          Now you have backed an EVIL man, who continues to waffle and compromise and back pedal everything he spouted off the top of his head.
          Here is YOUR clue. He insists that he has NO reason to ask God for forgiveness for any thing. Nof for his failure to keep his marriage vows. Not for his foul mouth. Not for his philandering with married women. Not for his UNETHICAL treatment of other businessmen when he declared bankruptcy to avoid paying bills but he COULD have paid easily with his BILLIONS

          You HAD II Chronicles 7:14. Now you have nothing.

            I don’t think AD has a grasp of real Christianity. Yes, he throws scripture around, but I don’t think he really knows that much about how to be a true Christian. He says he had a math degree and I asked him one time to help me with something involving math (asked him to explain to me the “hand of God” in math and he didn’t know and said it wouldn’t help me to know that. I think he may be a fraud. Don’t listen to him, Papa. You know the good ones on this site. Just disregard his comments. He really does think more of himself than he loves this country. God would have us vote for Trump because it is the best chance for us to be able to continue to worship God as we wish. If Hillary is elected, she will do everything she can to get God and churches OUT of the U.S. She will take away the tax exempt status for churches; thus, they will have less money to spread the Word of God. But AD is going to vote against that. He seems to hate everyone but Cruz and Cruz is a philanderer and has LOTS of faults…using his weird father like he did and I guarantee you his home life is awful. His family doesn’t seem to like him too much. He tried to kiss his daughter and she backed away looking scared to death. Just my perception, but mothers tend to know those things. Sorry, but I had to vent. Need to get in bed so I can get up in time for church. TTYL Papa.

            So in other words the Constitution means NOTHING to you! So you’ll choose an illegal alien liar over a citizen liar, that makes sense! Trump may not be perfect but at least he meets the requirement.

            If you actually understood the Bible then you would understand that according to II Chronicles 7:14, It would take the majority of Christians to do so, God will NOT heal our land for a handful of truly faithful Christians. More than half of those who claim to be Christians are NOT, they are just playing along to “look good”.

            John 14:1-3 Applies to any and everyone who is truly saved!

            Sir…I don’t want to live with my Christianity showing on my sleeve, but I really do live it. I find overt Christianity like that very unattractive. I do hope that people can tell I am a Christian by my actions, though. I just had to say something responding to your post. That is why I cannot abide all this sin in the world. I even try, through these blogs is one way, to say things about God, that may encourage people or prick their hearts in a good way so someone may say, “yeah, that is right…maybe I should find out more about God.” This election is wearing me thin, as I suffer from bad depression, as my son committed suicide about a year and a half ago. God is pulling me through it and I wondered why he is keeping me here living this horrible life alone (except for my Lord and my church family). I know now that it is to testify to others. Not to tell them the “woe is me,”s, but rather to plant seeds in their heart. Sometimes telling mu story (and there are many more tragedies and traumas than that involved) helps. I KNOW I will be in heaven for eternity and whatever happens for the rest of my life on earth (I am 66 now), it is but a blip on the radar in the scheme of things. I try very hard to be more Christlike every day. I will admit, though, that AD does try my patience when he uses God the way he does. Christians who have the Holy Spirit within them are not so hateful and mean to people like he is. He shows that he may not really have a good connection with God and that pains me. I wish everyone felt what I feel about God. It soothes my heart and God keeps showing me signs that He is with me. I love Him beyond all else. I stumble and sin every day of my life, but I also ask forgiveness and try to repent of my sins. So, there are Christians that do live what they believe. As for the hypocrites at church, what better place for them to be?

          • jnora

            AD seems to be the epitome of those Laodiceans (lukewarm church members from the church in Revelations) he talks about all the time. He seems to be a good example of projection (as in psychology…doing the same thing he is saying others are doing). He really should get some psychological help…what a pity. He appears to be a hopeless case, but with God, all things are possible. It will take a miracle of God, for sure. He is doing more harm than good to bring people to Christ. He is, more than likely, turning them away. I, for one, will continue to pray for him.

            I can appreciate your wrestling with this…many of us are as well; however, who I vote for, who you vote for, Cruiz, Trump, etc…so be it…I have no control over how the votes will go…
            The decision has already been made…
            …if I keep pushing for my selection, arguing the points that support that selection, disagreeing with the selections by others etc., isn’t gonna make a difference…
            …the decision has still already been made.
            I say this because out of frustration from what we read here, I also read comments from many who admit they have turned the whole ‘shoot’n match’ over to God…
            …that they TRUST HIM to do what it takes to address the situation we have brought upon this nation He placed in our trust, i.e., our poor stewardship.
            And I appreciate your command of the bible (thnx).
            But, if I keep addressing the comments of others that I don’t agree with…I am taking back what I turned over to God…
            Thus, I will have admitted that I don’t TRUST even HIM!

            While I know it is in Gods hands, I simply don’t believe we should be defeated in our participation in His works.
            Hillary is almost as far away from truth and God as man can get. A sit it out by you tells me that you refuse to keep this un godley piece of filth out of power.

            God uses us to implement His plans, though. Just like he used David and Solomon and all the great warrior throughout time. We must fight this evil that besets us. I feel that God would be displeased with us if we didn’t. It is like a sin of omission to me. Of course, His will will be done, but it will be done by Him using us. When I read your email to AD, my heart just dropped. I guess your tongue in cheek flew right over my head and I regret that. It caused me angst. AD many times misconstrues the Bible. I KNOW that God wants us to fight evil and Hillary stands for great evil. No, Trump is not perfect, but he is a step in the right direction. I hope he steps up his game and becomes serious about this run. IF he is part of Hillary’s plan, i will be greatly disappointed. She seems to have the power of Hitler. If she is elected, it will be God’s will and we must bear it. I refuse, as of today, to quit worrying about it and still stand up for what I think is right. Even Hillary cannot take my love for Christ away from me. She may be able to take away the church I attend, but that will cause many many tiny churches in peoples’ houses to turn up. We will find a way to worship in a group as God has commanded. Where two or three are gathered in His name as it said in Matthew…as it says in the Bible.

            I once mentioned to you that arguing with grossly misguided persons simply brings the one more stable and learned down to, or even below, that misguided persons…

            I have no fear of those who struggle with that difficulty…nor do I choose to waste my time engaging in verbal combat with them.

            But just sometimes, a wee bit of praise, a wee bit of complimenting, often helps that “irritating personality” realize they are destroying others, rather than making a positive contribution.

            And if that person senses that one of those compliments he did not realize he had…then it just might bring him closer to being more careful and mature how he communicates…

            …also, he might even realize he has a hidden anger or emotional pain that is affecting his ability to interface with others…

            Jnora, I also realize that it is a “double-edged sword” type of approach to that person…i.e., it could be taken as “hidden sarcasm”…or, as a sincere compliment…but either interpretation could cause that person to do some soul-searching quietly and peacefully, as compared to escalating verbal combat with abusive adjectives…

            AD may actually rejoice when others respond to him with anger because HE INSULTED THEM and their beliefs…

            …but it would be humorous too, if one would COMPLIMENT him for his “kind” word…so how do you suppose he would respond (listening AD?)

            Don’t concern yourself, Jnora, with things you can’t change, and concentrate your very fine gifts on those you can change…bless you

          • jnora

            This is actually to Downdraft and everyone:

            I am just going to have to disassociate myself from him. Obviously NOTHING works. He is going to be a sourpuss no matter what. I really don’t think he likes anything and first on the list is himself. It really is sad that someone thinks so little of himself. I should be praying for him instead of answering him. I’ll try not to answer any of his posts. If everyone would do that, he would lose interest, I feel sure. Hear that everyone???? Thanks, my friend. You are a bundle of wisdom. I am pretty well educated in both schooling and life and I sure as heck thought you were serious and it made me think, “boy…I sure did misread you and my counselor will surely be surprised.” LOL

          • downdraft

            It occurs to me that a lot of irritation stems from how some others digest the Bible, i.e., about what is right and what is wrong about those different interpretations of the Bible.
            It also seems the arguments that arise and the tempers that flair attack the “perpetrator” as though he and she were evil non-believers…and that is not always true.
            If, and when, I do these things, I would say I was behaving very much like a spiritual hypocrite…(and for once would be right! :>)).
            As well, I would actually be participating in destroying a person…I would really be ashamed in doing so.
            To me, trying to see if I can insult the other person better that he is insulting me, is non-productive, and not even close to converting that person’s thoughts.
            Jnora, imagine this…person #A is chastised by #B (also a believer) because he incorrectly interpreted what Jesus or God said in the Bible, but at the same time demonstrating that he was a believer…
            …#A gets upset and launches a verbal swing at #B…and it goes on and on…
            So what is the objective or goal here?
            For one believer to destroy the other?
            Look at it this way…both believers are better than half-way home…all that is left to do is for each to educate themselves better about God…
            That to me, is the time to give some thoughtful prayer as to how to make that happen…
            And if I continued the “can you top this insult game” it will never happen !
            So…AD if you are listening, you and I both are possibly prime candidates for improving our spiritual path…but we got to first get off our high horses and arrogance…
            And if you are reading this, AD…I’d be very receptive to reading more from you, and sharing with me how you have arrived at your positions and beliefs…
            Downdraft..

            In a way, it is like the primaries. Don’t down your same party opposition too much or the opposite party will use it against them in the general election. I certainly didn’t mean to judge AD’s Christianity, but when I see someone attack others like he does, it does rile me up. I remember in a small group at church one time, the leader of the group who was a cocky female converted lawyer, told me in front of the group that I did not know what the Holy Spirit was. I most certainly do because It has been in my heart since I have been a Christian. She was explaining it in a very odd way. The Holy Spirit is a very hard subject on which to teach and she was quit confused. It hurt me deeply. THEN my very best friend piped in and said, “and she doesn’t trust Jesus either.” I was heartbroken, not to mention fuming. Who were they to judge my Christianity like that. Christ is the ONLY one I trust. It broke up two friendships. I apologized for getting upset about it. To this day, my friend won’t even look at me. She is an intimidating person that taught at a university for 40 years and I was sort of her indentured servant rather than her peer. She knew I was pretty much destitute so she would give me money and meals, etc. to be at her beck and call. She did help me a lot and I understood what she thought of me…less than a person. It proves perfectly about one Christian judging another Christian. I remember how shocked I was when my sister who I adored for 51 years (and who I still love) started lying about me (terrible blatant lies) when my parents died. She was an elder’s wife and had I not known for sure that she was lying, as my kids did also, I never would have believed it. The rest of the family, of course, did believe her and so they have shunned me because of her lies. She still continues to this day after 15 years. It is heartbreaking for me. Her son (the only one in the family that speaks to me) told me that he fears she will die (she is 10 years older than me) before making things right with me. I have tried to get through to her, but she has a new husband and is keeping things from him and she would look very bad to him if the truth about her came out.

            My point is that Christians fighting among one another is very bloody and sets a terrible example for other Christians and for non-Christians. Perhaps that is why my oldest son has pushed religion away. Who knows?

            Shame on you, Downdraft. Please don’t fall for AD’s garbage. Of course God has a plan, but his plan probably has us doing our job also. Don’t do as AD does and allow Hillary to take over our country. That is so dangerous. Please read my previous posts. Don’t fall for this man, AD. All AD does is fight with people and most of his posts don’t even make sense. I don’t think he knows the Bible as well as he wants everyone to think. If he is preaching for people to vote for Cruz, then he is preaching false doctrine because he is turning us to voting for sin for our country. He is voting for the enemy and for the decline of our country. I know you better than AD does and I will be very disappointed in you if you either don’t vote or vote for anyone other than Trump. You know the reasons, I know you do! AD is poisoning these discussions with his vile words!

          • stgabrn

            Now ADR is on his judgement seat again. You are preaching to the choir again, miracle worker.

          • ADRoberts

            And I have to remind you again that to JUDGE, you have to 1. Declare guilt, 2. Pronounce punishment 3. Make sure that punishment is carried out.
            LOL
            Now we see through a glass darkly. And if you don’t understaand that you don’t get it, you never wil.

          • Bonnie Schulte

            so you are saying?? Ted cruz “not perfect” because he lies as often as Trump and the Hillary, who passes herself off as holy as the Virgin Mary (in her eyes), with pretty music and butterflies in the background. What a crock! Cruz will not save America.
            There is only one person here, to vote for…We are not voting on how often he has been married, or the way he made his $$$$. We are voting for Trump because he has the “guts” to get things done, and he because he LOVES America, and will not see it fall to people who want to cut our heads off!!

          • jnora

            Yep…that man does NOT like to fail…that is one reason I believe he will do what he says. Unless, of course, he has a Democratic Congress. What a shame that would be. They would probably impeach him just because they could!

          • ADRoberts

            So many times. I have challenged you and the others to NAME the lies. And yet NOT A ONE. You would rather believe the lies about a GOOD man and excuse the wicked. Trump admitted to seducing married women. And yet NOT A WORD of criticism. But then YOU jump on him for claims of some madam having a LIST with Cruz’s name on it
            Now about REAL records. Cruz’s record with Conservative Review is 97%. And you and the others have rejected the REAL deal for a fake.
            Go ahead. It is already set up any way.
            The Polls are being rigged to show Hillary is way ahead. ANd that way, when she and Soros count the votes and wins, no one will demand an investigation. In real voting, she is a sure loser. But that is NOT what the elite have planned.

          • jnora

            Shall I list the things that Hillary has done? It is 50 times longer and more severe than Trumps. Lots of very good leaders have personal problems in their lives. You are, in essence, voting for Hillary. Hope you are proud of that. If she wins, you will have helped her win. God chose some very awful men to lead the Israelites at times. Some he pushed away after they did the dirty work of killing the enemy. Others, like David and Solomon, he knew their hearts and kept. We NEED Trump right now and you will have to live with yourself if you write in Cruz. You will have voted for Hillary and there is no way around that, AD. I would say that would be a sin. Trump needs all the votes he can get to get our country out of this mess and you are stopping that and going for a socialist that is a huge crook. Try to reason that out with God. He knows exactly what you are doing to this country! What you are doing is a SIN! Voting for a Christian, even though he is a Christiian of sorts, he cannot win and you must vote for the one that has the best chance of helping our country get God back into it. Hillary is a much worse person than Trump and you know it….YOU ARE VOTING FOR HILLARY!!

          • ADRoberts

            HA
            Trump’s list is the same as Hillary’s as far as stuff that is good for America.
            NOTHING.
            No, you rationalization that my WRITE IN vote for Cruz is a vote for Clinton shows just how much YOU don’t trust God.
            As for your evaluation of how good or bad men are? LOL Why would I pay attention to you. Do you have stellar success in your life? Have you made ALL good decision. Do you even today, admit that you made even a SINGLE mistake?
            Now you have rationalized voting for a wicked man who just now showed that he is NOT an outsider by his endorsing of McCain, Ryan and Aycotte. And you think that with all that duplicity and deceit and his willingness to compromise with the VERY people he claims to oppose, he will make a difference.
            Now consider Gideon. You remember him? Of course not. Tell me how rational his actions, to take 300 men and fight an army of thousands.
            DO YOU TRUST GOD? Then trust Him.
            Otherwise, stop claim to be HIS

          • jnora

            AD, all I and some of the others, no to do is to pray for you. We shall do that because you are in need of it. Enough said.

          • ADRoberts

            “no” to do? How about “know to do”. And that is what you and the others have left to resort to. When you cannot argue your case, you insult or claim to pray for me. Now,I repeat., I am a servant of God. I have prayed and MIRACLES have happened. You can’t say the same. You can’t even get along with your own family. Yet you persist in trying to put me down.
            God have mercy on you.
            Now the end of time is coming. Things are so bad NOW that, just like the Bible said, no one knows what to do. At least the ones who are in charge don’t. That is because their primary focus is to maintain their positions and the ONLY way they can do that is by BUYING the votes and supports.
            What is coming? Anarchy, empty shelves in stores, empty churches, and rioting. And have YOU prepared?
            1. By stockpiling food?
            2. By obeying II Chronicles 7:14 and repenting?
            3. By doing ANYTHING?
            Of course not.
            You are probably a Laodicean. And I am sure that you have so little knowledge of the Bible that you don’t even know who they are.
            God have mercy on you.
            Oh, and that CLAIM that some others have given up and are praying for me is bogus too. You don’t talk to ANYONE else about me, DO YOU.

          • Pamela Sellarole

            First of all, Mr. Roberts, Mr. Trump only recently came to Christ, according to an interview with Dr. James Dobson. Secondly, people can and do grow and change as they learn new information. I recall hearing that Mr. trump, for example, was somewhat “pro-choice,” but has learned more about what abortion is, and why they want it so badly, and has changed his mind, adopting a staunchly pro-life position. He has also been better educated on American-Israeli relations, thanks to men like Ben Carson in his corner, and is now very pro-Israel. whereas he once was neutral. I see more and more of Dr. Carson’s wisdom rubbing off on Mr. Trump. Although I would have preferred Dr. Carson himself as the candidate, I am willing to support Mr. Trump, with Dr. Carson as one of his advisors.

          • jnora

            Pamela…you have just outlined the road to salvation. Salvation is a change of heart and, who knows, Trump may turn out to be a true Christian someday. At least he has faith in God. That is a huge step. I am trying to convert my granddaughter and she tells me, “Grandma, my problem is that I have not lived around anyone that has ever mentioned God. Faith is my problem, Grandma.” We live states apart, so I do the best I can. If AD is the Christian he says he is, he, of all people, should understand that. being a Christian includes a change of heart. If people cannot change, then the church would never grow. Trump is smart enough to listen to reason and the Word is certainly reason. No one that has ever set out to disprove the Bible has ever been successful. Usually they end up becoming Christians. That is probably some of what the left holds against him. He is a reasonable man. You are right about Dr. Carson. There are many men of God that are supporting him. I’ll bet you if you corralled up all the ministers, rabbis, priests, etc. in the U.S. and polled them, Trump would win by a huge margin!. People like Hillary are trying to take God out of the country and the clergy and Christians, Jews and other people who believe in the one and only true and living God are trying to get Him back in our lives. Him being pushed out of Americans’ lives is the reason we are in the position we are in now. Plain and simple. That is why people are of worse moral being now, also. We need God in our lives. I long for the 1950’s without the Korean War and the dreadful ways the blacks were treated. We have made the way we treat the blacks good and we owe them no more. This BLM is a curse on America and must be stamped out. They have the same opportunities that anyone else has in this country if they would just assimilate and do what is necessary to obtain the American dream instead of sit around and expect the government to support them. I know that sounds harsh, but we must work to get the good things in life. We are promised the pursuit of happiness…not happiness.

          • ADRoberts

            Sorry. But I watch Dobson closer than you do. He quitely withdrew his support I was noted that the one who claimed they had lead Trump to Christ was a woman named Paula White. She and all her ministry has been discredited as she is under investigation for fraud.
            You failed to keep up to date. But that is expected from someone who is desperate to support Trump. Now explain how much of an OUTSIDER he is since he just endorsed McCain, Ryan and Aycotte. Their conservative ratings are 34%, 53% and 32%. Stellar if you are a RINO. lol
            Explain his endorsement? I can. He has NO principles and will compromise every day of the week, to GET THE DEAL.

          • bernie

            If Dobson withdrew his support ; it’s news to me. He was on day before yesterday still going strong with Trump.maybe you are wrong about this like you were with Trump and Cruz ?

          • ADRoberts

            Let me see. I have the letter from Dobson explain his position. He is clear. He does not take an active endorsement of Trump. He does express extreme doubt about Hillary.
            So you think that what YOU THINK you heard trumps what I have in writing
            Let me just say this. Dobson and I have much more integrity than you. And since you are obviously a TRUMPSTER, nothing you say has validity or should get ANY attention.
            GOTCHA.
            Now, bernie, as in Sanders. You have as much credibility as Hillary does
            YOu have 579 comments and just 397 likes. Pathetic.
            So I can say, along with the great number who validate my comments, YOU are the one who is wrong.

          • ADRoberts

            You can’t be PROLIFE and continue to give to Planned Parenthood. I don’s care how much other “good stuff” they do. Their PRIMARY focus is on abortion. And it has been since Margaret Sanger started the organization decades ago. It IS about getting rid of blacks, poor white trash babies and MAKING MONEY. And yes, you can’t deny after the exposure that they ARE about making money. ANd they CONTINUE TO sell baby parts. How can I be sure. They filed charges against the people who exposed them in Houston, until the spotlight was off of them. NOTHING has changed.

          • ADRoberts

            Trump totally trashed Carson. And then Carson endorsed him. My guess is that Trump PAID Carson’s campaign debt. That was expedient on Carson’s part and shows HIS lack of principles too.

            Now get this. As indicated by Trump’s latest actions in endorsing McCain, the songbird (yes they now have the video showing him betraying America) Ryan, (and his BUDGET of giving EVERYTHING to Obama) and Aycotte, you should be able to see that Trump; has NO principles. He is not a conservative. He is not moral. And since he still has NOT asked God to forgive him for anything, he is NOT a Christian.

            So what does Trump going for him? He is not Hillary.
            Oh, and IF Trump really wanted to beat Hillary, he would be going after all the scandals. 67% of America don’t trust HER. He could use that.
            But instead, you will see him contijnue to WAFFLE and flip flop.
            And just as was predicted, Hillary is likely to win. For sure there are two things going on.
            1. The polls, which are likely FALSE, are declaring she is ahead. And that is to prepare for:
            2. Massive voter fraud.

          • jnora

            Don’t forget Bebe Netanyahu. He and Trump will get along great. They are both well educated and kind men and will not be out for “themselves.” I have always admired Netanyahu and the way Obama has treated him has made steam come out of my ears (can you see it now just from talking about it?).Netanyahu can run circles around Obama or Clinton in the intelligence and good sense areas. Obama probably hates Jews just like the rest of the Muslims!

          • jnora

            BTW, everyone…if you have a Trump sign in your yard (and you all should have one), please put it in one of the windows of your house. Mine is driving my neighbor crazy. Theft is why you don’t see many. Have you noticed that the Republicans don’t do much of that kind of thing? Guess we aren’t thugs like they are. Having it in your window just drives them nuts. They would have to commit a felony to get your sign because even breaking your window would probably amount to at least $500. Put something expensive and irresistible right next to it (something that you are not sentimental about) to make sure it is worth over $500 and they will go to prison with the rest of the Democrats. I have it all worked out for you. May even want to have one of your old phones hooked up as a camera. I saw on that Henry Ford’s Innovation shows on Saturday mornings that it can easily be done. Just hide it and catch them in the act. Make sure you are all gone so no one is hurt. Dems are covered in Teflon, but it is worth a try. Maybe Trump will pay your lawyer bills!

            Seems like we are on the same page yet again, Jnora! God bless you, madame. I’ve always been a fan of Bibi’s–in fact, if you’ll go to my online store, Batelelyon Enterprises, I have a whole line of products with the slogan “This American stands with Bibi.” You might find something there that interests you. We really need to remind our fellow voters that Israel is our ALLY, NOT our enemy, as Barry and his ilk want us to believe. And Killary would fall right in line with his anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist ways, further bringing America under God’s curse instead of helping us regain His blessing. (Genesis 12:1-3).

            We may sooooo need Israel someday. I can only imagine what it is like living in a small country with large countries that hate your guts surrounding you.

            If you’re a christian, I pity you for the way you misrepresent Christ, for: Matthew 7:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
            “1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

            2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

            3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” As to 2 {not II!] Chronicles 7:14 2 Chronicles James Version (KJV)
            “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” I have humbled myself, while you (Read what you’ve written!), display NO humility. Since I am born again, John 14:1-3 (Or as you insist, John 14:1=3, 1 equals 3) perfectly applies to me! John 14:1-3King James Version (KJV)

            “1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

            2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

            3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” I don’t know why you display such hatred and arrogance, but you are in my prayers. And there’s nothing you can do about that. Please feel free to reply with some demeaning, crass, crude remark. For I count it all joy to be persecuted for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In the love of Christ, Tcob!.

          • ADRoberts

            Your bigotry is showing. II is the way MANY Bibles list Books of the Bible where there are more than ONE installment. So you want to demand that it be 2? LOL. That was a pathetic attempt to defend Trump and HIS TWO Corinthians. LOL
            Now, you who lack understanding and integrity, IF you had humbled yourself, you would not be attacking an EXHORTER who is obeying God and telling the people who are called by HIS Name to do exactly that. But you are not about actually repenting. You intentionally left out the REPENTANCE. As I would have expected. That is the critical part. And while you are at it, you failed to even pay attention to the Lord’s Prayer, where YOU ask God to NOT forgive you when you say, “and forgive us our debts AS we forgive our debtors.”
            You have not been persecuted. You have been EXHORTED to leave your arrogance and pride.
            Now for the proof.
            IF you had obeyed II Chronicles 7:14, we should be seeing God moving to HEAL THE LAND.
            If you were a true, believing faithful servant of Jesus Christ, you would be testifying to the miracles you have been involved in as per John 14:12.
            Not only have I been involved in Miracles that I can, IF YOU WANTED TO HEAR THEM, tell you about, I am also more knowledgeable of the Bible than you can imagine.
            For instance, can you, in all you Christian love and respect for other believers who actually obey Jesus, tell me the KEY VERSE of the entire Bible?
            I am sure you have no idea. So it is Acts 1:8. And it tells ALL believers to receive the Holy Spirit so that they will be able to do the ONE thing Christians are supposed to do., BE MY WITNESSES. But you see, you can’t witness to the power of God, His forgiveness, his Love for the lost WHEN you don’t have the power of the Holy Spirit. WHY? The Spirit prepares the heart of the sinner to receive the message.

            Now again, I ask you to, for once in your arrogant life, look up what the JOB of the exhorter is. I am not sent to sinners. I am sent to those who falsely claim to be SERVANTS of Jesus and yet refuse to grow in grace, wisdom and in the ability to forgive those who, while NOT sinning, DON’T have the same beliefs.
            FORGIVENESS. RESPECT. LOVE.
            I will not discount your prayers. But I have no faith in them.

If you think you’ve bested me–then so be it.This is all a game to you. I’ll face Christ as one who never cast stones, where you’ve made a pastime of the same. In Christ, Tcob!. P.S. And thank you for persecuting me, for I count it all joy to be persecuted for my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

            I am an exhorter. By the Gifts of the Spirit And your prayers mean nothing because you have shown that you are not a righteous man.
            You back and support the wicked, simply because of your pragmatism.
            Then you do what evernyone who cannot argue their cause does. You call me mentall ill. That is TRULY spewing hate. And then to claim that after you infer it, you deny doing it. LOL Such lack of integrity. So split hairs.
            See what that does when yo stand before God.
            You claim that you do not caste stones. But then you go forward with as many shades of gray as can be imagined.
            Now you have not been persecuted by me. I have done you no real damage except to call you out in your hypocrisy.
            But you play the victim card. And I will laugh at your pathetic attempts to win a discussion without using a single fact.
            God have mercy on your soul.
            And by the way. You want to actually claim to be a Chritians? Testify to the number of times you have obeyed JOHN 14:12. That is a REQUIREMENT FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE.
            And with your Laodicean attitude, you will have NOTHING to testify to .

          • jnora

            Hey, Taking Care of Business…I guess AD doesn’t even know what I consider one of the most important verses in the Bible and that is Acts 2:38.Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit:” Baptism is the one and ONLY way that you can receive the Holy Spirit. AD would probably eat my lunch over that one, but there it is in black and white…no ambiguous words whatsoever in it. That is also how we get forgiveness of our sins. After we are baptized, all we need do is ask Christ and he will forgive us and we must repent. He will prepare us to present us to God in a sinless condition in the end, as God cannot abide sin. Oh, what a great time that will be! BTW, baptism comes from the, I believe Greek word, Baptismo, which means to immerse. One must be of the age of accountability.. I believe a child is not born with the original sin on them…they are born innocent. They cannot be held responsible for their actions until they know right from wrong. I happened to be 11 years old when I was at that point. Then again, I was raised in the church and believed in God and Christ all my memorable life because I had very godly parents. I was very blessed. I try my best to be more Christlike every day. I have had some very weak times in my life, but my faith is so strong now and I am glad I have made it through my trials, as bad as they were, because I wouldn’t miss this faith I feel inside of me for anything. Whatever happens, I have trust in the Lord and I KNOW I will be with Him for eternity. What a peaceful thought that is..

          • ADRoberts

            And by the way, that was really indicative of your gnit picking to point out my typo. Yes, it is John 14:1-3. And in your desperation to find fault, that became a big deal.
            May God bless you. IAnd yes, that is both a blessing and a curse, as per the Bible)

          • A natural born American

            Whatever Trump has or has not done is between him and his God, Not the rest of us and him and God. Judge not lest ye be judged. For some people that’s very hard to do. Right ADR? There are those of us who try to keep this in mind for when our own judgement day comes along. Granted, there are some people who just scream to be judged, and many of us throw caution to the wind and oblige them, but that doesn’t mean we should have.

            However, when someone is lying to your face, and not only do you know absolutely that they’re lying to you, but THEY KNOW you know they’re lying to you yet they continue the lie by swearing to God they’re telling you the truth. Then they compound their lies by denying ever telling the first lie even when confronted with documented evidence of their uttering that lie. Whew! I think I just described hillary to a ‘T”.

          • ADRoberts

            What a pathetic excuse for defending him. You want to claim that what he has done and is doing is just between him and God. That is not even true of YOU. and you are not running for president.
            What he is, ethically, morally and as to his lack of respect for others, is directly related to what he will do as POTUS.
            And for you to deny that is abjectly ridiculous.
            And you, just like so many others, MISQUOTE the verse from Matthew. The intent of that verse was spelled out in the part of the verse you did not quote, “For with the same measure you judge, you will be judged.”
            And you failed to bother to quote the LAST part of that chapter where is says, “by their fruit, ye shall know them.” Now, since you have proven your lack of Bible knowledge, I will now point out that in order to JUDGE, you have to. 1. Declare guilt 2. Pronounce punishment 3. Make sure that punishment is carried out.
            So I have DEMOLISHED YOU.
            Now, bright BOY. I will acknowledge that Clinton is worse. But you are doing yourself and everyone else a great disservice by trying to defend such a wicked man as Trump IS.
            Don’t you get it. The millions who abhor him actually have reason.
            And now, just as I predicted, he has BOLDLY come out by endorsing the WORST of the RINOs, And you thought he was an OUTSIDER. LOL
            HE LIED TO YOU. He is not an outsider. He is not a conservative. He is not a Christian as he has NO idea what it is to be a Christian. Anyone who brags that he has never and sees no reason to ask God for forgiveness is CERTAINLY anything to do with God.
            Now you want to call that JUDGING? So where did I pronounce punishment? Where did I make sure that the punishment was carried out.
            And by the way. His ENDORSEMENT of McCain, and Ryan are proof positive that he HAS NO PRINCILPLES. He will compromise any and every time he feels he will GAIN.

          • jnora

            I certainly didn’t mean to judge AD…just making Christlike observations about him. I truly feel sorry that anyone is as misguided as he is. He must be so very sad in life. He throws barbs at all of us and, yet, I doubt if it makes him feel any better. I know how bad mental illness can be. i would rather have about any physical illness than anything as bad as the mental problems my life has caused me. I do wish he wouldn’t ruin every single discussion I ever get in, though. People are so good in this discussion and he has to interject venom into the posts. That is why I will never answer him again. I will, however, judge Hillary because I think we have to because our country is at stake. We have to in order to know what is right for our country.

          • bernie

            You are giving a false statement when you say Donald Trump did not pay the bank. The Bank was doing what they call a holding pattern for Trumps’ other business deal to come through. He paid every cent of the money you are so concerned about. This should relieve your worries about Trump on this. If you would check out Cruz a little better you would find out that he is not the guy you think he is, I did, and then wouldn’t vote for him at all. Takes a little work, but it’s worth it.

          • ADRoberts

            You must be on drugs. I said nothing about Trump not paying the bank. Look at the thread. but then, you also showed your stupidity when you claim that you researched Cruz and found fault.
            So I will challenge you. STATE WHAT YOU FOUND. Make sure that you also reference that all your information can from sources that were and are highly questionable.
            LOL
            GOTCHA
            I called your BLUFF. Prove what Cruz did that was wrong.
            Prove that his CR rating is NOT 97%
            Prove that the RINOs in the Senate who continue to give Obama everything he wants are NOT the very same ones who hate Cruz because he won’t go along with them.
            Prove that Cruz is NOT against the TPP when I called his office and received direct statement that HE IS OPPOSED TO IT.
            Prove the lies that Trump put out about Cruz, Cruz’s wife and father that Trump REFUSES to apologize for.
            Arrogant. Evil, wicked.
            Just like you

          • bernie

            If you were smart and checked out all these things, you would already know about them. I check all before I say it is fact, and you should already have known it, as you seem to be up on all of Trumps’ so called bad things, of which you are all mixed up on. I don’t think anyone who knows me would call me evil, but as you don’t know me ; I will forget about that. I realize that anyone who likes Trump, you call evil. I could say that about Cruz, but wouldn’t, as I don’t think it would be the right thing to do.
            You need to re- evaluate your thinking and Posts, as you could do better on showing people they might be wrong about the things they say, such as you are wrong on much of what you say.

          • ADRoberts

            Time may tell.
            For sure, God will tell.
            I have some backing already. My likes record used to be about 6 per comment. But I have be responding to guys like you too much to keep it high.
            How about yours. 580 comments and 497 “Likes” That says it all.
            Apparently a great many MORE people think I am RIGHT than you claim.
            But then, that is NOT a surprise.
            Cruz had record. Cruz had a CR rating of 97%. And instead of looking at REAL records, you looked at the “outsider” who now has endorsed McCain 34%, Ryan 53% and Aycotte 32%. This is TRUMP. This is the man who has NO PRINCIPLES but is always looking to SAY what he thinks people want to hear.
            I have evaluated my thinking. And I am still right. You go on faith in a rich, foul mouthed, philandering, man who shows NO principles, does not keep his vows or promises and can’t make up his mind on just about ANYTHING.
            LOL And you want ME to “re’evaluate”.?

          • bernie

            I don’t keep track of how many people read or like my comments. In fact I was mostly talking about your language, calling people evil etc. I do look up and prove to myself what a Candidate votes for and when one changes his vote on a Trade deal such as the TPP at the closing of a long hearing on it which is what Cruz did . People evidently did not stay with it long enough to see it. At first, I thought I would vote for Cruz, then began looking and didn’t like a lot of what he did, but that’s past History. Now. I am Totally forever against a OWO which is what almost all of the Candidates were for. I don’t want to give away our Sovereignty which it would do. The TPP would cover almost anything freedom stands for.I believe Trump would keep his promise on it, because I believe he does love America. Now , a little personal You called me evil,I guess because I was voting for Trump and I didn’t much care for that. My husband and I have been married for many many years still love each other, have two great boys ,and several grandchildren, etc, who have made a name in the music industry Grand children Great Grandchildren, and Gr Grts., We do not drink or smoke, and have been true to each other, have had a really good life. I think we are stabilized enough to know who to vote for and why. You may not understand our voting for Trump, but it’s very clear to me that if he loses we all lose our …. Sovereignty.

            And that is what really matters over anything else.

          • ADRoberts

            So simple. You believe. And that is all you have. Now IF you were to say that you believe in Jesus Christ and actually TRUST HIM with your life, I would say you have made a good choice. But you trust a man. A very bad man whose record and his present inability to be consistent and be a real conservative betray him. And yes, he is for sure better than Hillary.
            But, I simply have NO WAY to put my trust in anyone any more who is not Jesus.
            So you think that we will lose our sovereignty? So what. With the OWO taking control, as the Bible says they WILL, there is only one thing that is for sure.
            John 14:1-3
            Life is short. Death is sure. Sin is the sickness. Christ is the cure. And HIS promise is for “many mansions”.

          • bernie

            ——————————————–

          • ADRoberts

            Accurate response.

          • bernie

            I have it all. People trust their friends and other people every day , your Dr., your neighbor, your car to start, on and on. It is a very different trust than the trust and belief in Jesus. Our friends maybe will fail us, and maybe not, but we still have to trust a little that they will keep their word. We know God hears us and if we are in his will we know he will keep us in his care, and do what is best for us. I trust fully in God as I made my choice many years ago, and God is in my life. I know in whom I believe. As far as the OWO, my husband always says ” just make sure you are ready to go.” My children and grandchildren, are leaders in the ministry, and all even the Great and Greats working for the Lord. The Bible says to bring them up in the way of the Lord, and I believe that. You actually have been trying to tell me what I believe in your comments here. I don’t need a man to tell me what I believe. I know who and what I am , a sinner saved by grace. Have you been born again?

          • ADRoberts

            It would appear that your “trust” in God is only for the spiritual. Deny that.
            Because it is for sure that you do not trust Him enough to actually step out in GIDEON type faith and take action that from a worldly point of view is not “rational”
            Now as to your question about me being born again. Yes. And then it is my turn. So I will ask you DO YOU OBEY JESUS INSTRUCTIONS IN JOHN 14:12?

            With your response being what is expected from a Laodicean, I would venture that you will not even respond at all.
            Yes. IF you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you WILL be performing miracles as Jesus instructed. But it is NOT possible for thsoe of Laodicea to do such.
            It requires that you be FILLED with the Holy Spirit and in order to do that, you HAVE to have died to yourself and given control over to that Holy Spirit.
            Now TESTIFY. Have YOU done that.
            You wanted to reflect on MY faith. Now it is YOUR turn to document just how much of a Christian you really are.
            And by the way. I have had circumstances arise when GOD told me to call up and person and check on their welfare. In fact several times.
            And in doing so, I learned of serious needs that my Wife and I were able to meet. Has that happened to you. Are you sensitive enough to the call of God to HEAR when He calls?
            NO? Then just as I have asserted. You are of the Church of Loadicea.
            Now you have three choices.
            1. Go silent if you have no possible response.
            2. Testify to what God has done in your life and by doing so, give HIM the glory.
            3. Admit that you have NO power as was promised in Acts 1:8

          • bernie

            Here you go again, telling people what they do and don’t do, telling them they don’t have the Spirit, etc, Yes, I have been filled with the Spirit. Have you fed thousands of people that needed food and couldn’t afford it, and started a food bank and did it for years? Have you laid hands on the sick and seen them healed. Have you gone to peoples’ homes and led them to the Lord. Have you ministered in Church meetings traveled hundreds of miles over America to do this for many years.That takes getting on your knees and getting serious with the Lord. I have never written anything like this on a Blog because some might say I think too highly of myself, but I don’t. I think that God through me is trying to tell you to use wisdom in what you are saying, as to me it sounds as if you want to be the one to tell everyone else how to live, and condemning them if you think they aren’t doing things your way. I don’t know how old you are, but when you are over 80 years old , let me know how far you have traveled steadily and ministered for 60 years, not just on Sunday. In myself, I am nothing, but with God, I have everything.

          • ADRoberts

            This all started when YOU mistakenly claimed that I said something about Trump not paying a bank. I said NOTHING about paying banks.
            And I don’t know where you came from But apparently being 80 years old, you seem to have slipped a cog and accused me of things I am not guilty of.
            Not to worry. You will answer. And I have a clear conscience.

          • ADRoberts

            Very crafty. You asked if I had done these things, implying that YOU HAD. But YOU never said that you did.
            Do you serve God? Really? Now you have testified. And IF you are still serving God, you will understand what I say when I direct you to READ and obey the Lord’s Prayer.
            You back Trump? WHY? Trump has NOTHING to do with God. He lies about everythIng.
            Enough.
            I leave you to God and his judgement.
            My conscience is clear.
            By the way. I have fed the hungry. Probably more than I can number. I have prayed for the dying and they have lived. I Have prayed for the sick and they have, at least temporarily been given relief.
            So while I can’t match what you IMPLY without actually saying you had done these things. I can say that I have obeyed God.
            Now, “….forgive us our debts AS we forgive our debtors.”
            By the way. I am an exhorter, as by God’s gift.

          • bernie

            AD, I am glad that you told me you have done these things. That makes me feel good that some are still doing what God wants and has called them to do. Yes, I and my family have done these things,and did them for many years. We were on the road so much, but enjoyed spreading the Gospel and winning souls for the Lord. We started in 1967 and just stopped traveling about 2 years ago. My husband is in bad health now so not able to travel. Our Grandchildren are taking up the slack now and working , preaching and singing, but don’t travel like we did. You can see and hear our oldest son on You tube , by Award Winning Guitarest, Cal Denison. you might enjoy it. Again, keep up the good work, and God Bless!

          • ADRoberts

            Tried to look it up. Not enough information Too many videos related.
            I am always interested in doctrine. Maybe that is because of my background as the son of a Nazarene pastor.
            What denomination or doctrine do you hold. And yes, as indicated by Revelation in reference to Laodicea, doctrine does matter.

          • bernie

            When we traveled we went to almost every Denomination. Some of my closest relatives are Nazarene. You may or your parents may know of Dr. David Hall, who was my cousin, and J.R.
            Hall, both in that Church for many years, now passed on. Both wonderful men. We attend the Assembly of God, when my husband is able. He also is an Ordained Minister. I don’t agree with all their beliefs,meaning things outside of Doctrine, but most people if they are honest don’t agree with all their Churches’ beliefs either. I agree with their basic Doctrine. It’s straight. The one we attend is pretty modern about some things. I don’t agree with any Church , etc that does not believe Jesus is Devine.There are many that do not believe that. The You Tube” deal is “Award Winning Guitarist, Cal Denison ” Should be easy to find now. I asked him if he wanted to be mentioned on a Blog. He said he didn’t care. haha

          • ADRoberts

            God bless you. Nazarenes are the ones primarily fulfilling the prophesy that the Gospel would be preached to the entire world. Happening now. Campus Crusade gave us 200 copies of the Jesus Film and the equipment needed to show it. Want to be encouraged ? Look up the “Jesus Film Partners” on the Church of the Nazarene web site.
            Amazing stories of the millions who ae hearing the gospel.

            I think I got it right when you said” He declared Bankruptcy to Avoid paying Bills , but could have paid easily with his Billions. He didn’t avoid or Not pay his Bills. He paid all of them, and could have if broke, gone to any bank at any time and got all the money he wanted. He has been one of he most successful business men of our times, and that is more than can be said of many Business men. Just because you don’t like a guy, you should still be able to get the facts straight regardless. There are many things that Trump has right in his later life and younger years, which people don’t know,because he doesn’t talk about it. One of them is his children who are some of the most successful , and have the best of character of any young people you would ever meet. Everyone should have children like Trumps’, and he did a lot of the raising on them. They speak loudly of what Trump has been as a father. He has done very well with all his family, and they seem to speak highly of him. That says a lot more than you can say about many men…and women. I wouldn’t get too obsessed with Trump, as he can paddle his own canoe without any extra help from people who don’t really know him, and actually hate him.

          • ADRoberts

            Define success.
            Three marriages
            4 bankruptcies
            Says he is PROLIFE but gives to Planned Parenthood.
            And his polls KEEP dropping as he continues to OPEN HIS MOUTH.
            LOL
            For all you know, Trump crossed over to the Republican Party from being a major liberal and major liberal supporter to make sure that his “GOOD FRIEND” who he “GREATLY ADMIRED” Hillary WAS elected by alienating so many in the Republican Party. LOL
            If this was his plan, it was brilliant and is working.
            SUCKER.
            And which fact do you want to get straight? Maybe the one where he told Kim Davis to “obey the law of the land”. When she was, as the SCOTUS could not make a law authorizing homosexual marriage and the Kentucky Law DID protect her religious freedoms? GOTCHA. Davis was right. Trump was wrong. AGAIN.

          I KNOW we are right. I agree with virtually everything Trump wants to do. I agree with NOTHING Hillary wants to do and she will go even more left after getting elected. That is what a vote for Cruz will get you. God will look at it just like a vote for Hillary.

The world is bad enough without him making it worse. If people wrote stuff about me like they do him, I would just get off these discussions! He must like it. Must want to be some sort of martyr or something. He hurts people and that goes against the “Christianity” he TRIES to preach, or his version thereof.

            Way to go downdraft. AD never says anything good about anyone, does he? What in the heck are they saying Trump is lying about? The only thing I know of is the plane he saw. It was an honest mistake. So it was the money plane. He saw it
            on Fox for crying out loud. It was an easy things to do. Also, he fessed up for it. No one can say anything he has lied about. I heard some Democrat say on TV today that he only tells the truth about 4% of the time. What on earth are they talking about. I think he is very open and honest. I have liked him from the first and I get really offended when I hear all these lying Dems LIE about Trump all the time. It is purely projection to the Nth! Please don’t comment to me AD. I have had enough of you!

            Downdraft: This is sort of off subject, but I wanted to get this to you immediately. I just looked on FB and one of my cousin’s daughter (cousin recently died) wrote this on her Facebook account:

            I want to say something about the spirituality debate. You don’t believe in God? Fine. Why is it so important for many of you to mock those of us that do? If we’re wrong, what have we lost when we die? Nothing! How does our believing in Jesus bring you any harm? You think it makes me stupid? Gullible? Fine. How does that affect you? If you’re wrong your consequence is far worse. I would rather live my life believing in God and serving Him, and find out I was right, than not believe in Him and not serve Him, and find out I was wrong. Then it’s too late.
            Ain’t no shame in my game! I believe in Jesus Christ. He said deny me in front of your friends & I will deny you in front of my Father…God is Good!!!!!! All the time!!!!! He’s not looking for you to be perfect…but accept him as your Lord and savior…we all need him right now…Amen!!!!

            Downdraft (and others)…how beautiful is that from a young girl? So plain and easy to understand. Wish the government could understand that and just let us be.

          No different than finding out Cruz isn’t what he professes to be!

          • jnora

            Cruz was OK at first, but turned out to be scary and devilish to me. Slippery!

          • Rattlerjake

            There is something very wrong with a lawyer and “constitutional ” scholar who doesn’t understand the term “Natural Born Citizen”, claims to have “overlooked” loan info on his senate candidate forms, claims he had no idea he was a Canadian citizen, and also can’t provide proof of his American citizenship.

        I will never, ever answer another post from AD. He just HAD to bring up my sons, knowing that one had committed suicide and knowing that would upset me. He has been so insensitive about that and to ask me how my kids would vote has put me into an all-day crying spell. I wish NO ONE would answer his posts. That is the second time he has haunted me about my dead son. I hope the good Lord ties his mouth shut. Haven’t I gone through enough with one dead son and my only other son mentally ill and not having spoken to me in almost 2 years? AD is cruel beyond belief. I am having such a hard time dealing with all my pain anyway and he just adds fuel to the fire. I have tried to stand up to him, but I just don’t have it in me anymore. I do need a vacation from this. Fill in for me….will you? Everyone, do the best you can to contain that man and don’t let him hurt anyone else. You have the right attitude to deal with him. I have so much hurt inside of me I just can’t take it. I will NEVER get over my son’s suicide or my son’s mental illness. I didn’t cause either, but am being punished for both by myself. One day I will be with my Lord and it will all be in the past. I just can’t put it in the past in this life and people like AD making it worse is something I just don’t need. Thank you, my friends…all of you.

          • jnora

            When will the cruel people (especially the ones that claim to be Christians) get out of my life. He knew my situation with both my kids and to ask me how they were voting is his underhanded way of getting to me emotionally. It is like Satan is working in him. I had so much to do today and he is probably jumping for joy that he has now stopped me from doing any of it. When I saw that comment from him in mu email, I just had to answer him. God will deal with him and his hypocrisy. I would hope that none of you would answer him and he will just poop out. He likes shock value and that is what he was getting with me. I will try to expunge him from my mind. He shows up in every discussion I get on. I was going to try to do some good in these discussions by planting some seeds, but he undoes everything I try to do. You are effective…you and Mike Cook and Papa…carry on for me….OK? I do feel loved from some of the things you and the others have said to me. Christian love is so wonderful. I just can’t get enough of it. I do not feel that with AD…I only feel pity for him. He has done more harm for Christianity than good. Do you suppose he realizes that? Godspeed, my friends. Jnora

          • downdraft

            ” He has done more harm for Christianity than good. Do you suppose he realizes that?”

            YEP!

            I also suspect he is obsessed with watching the reaction of others..

            YEP!

            And I suspect he doesn’t know what to do with the evil that has been forced on him, by Evil itself…

            I think it wise of you to disengage, and deny him any openings to feed his appetite…

            You may be doing him a favor, because he may not be able to handle it on his own…pray that this evil leave his heart and soul…

            …he NEEDS your prayer most, because he has tried to hurt you most…

            Before you take that short vacation…maybe you can send him your prayer…it might surprise him

          • jnora

            You are right downdraft!

            Easy to say, hard to do. Please read my reply above and join with those kind people to stop this cruel man. Thank you so much for your kind words. They mean a lot to me.

            Don’t worry I’m with you. That is why I am following you!

          • jnora

            Hey Arizona Don…didn’t mean to leave you out of my epistle-length post above. Read it, because I include you also. Even if you aren’t religious, you are a GOOD man. Your wife is a lucky woman and you tell her that!

          • jnora

            This is to Downdraft, Mike Cook, Papa Bear, Used to be a Liberal and all others out there that have stood behind me (forgive me if I have left anyone out). OK, people, I AM BACK!!! I printed out some of AD’s more crazy and hurtful posts and took them to my counselor today. His emotions were a mix of rolling eyes, laughter, incredulity, protection of me and almost falling out of his chair. Those were mixed with feelings that the guy had lost his mind (if it was ever there…that was my feeling). He could not believe that such a person existed. I told him that I was going to not even read his posts and totally discount him…I hope everyone on this blog will do so, too. That is the only way we can stop his venom. It is like my brother teasing me. The more I squawked, the more he liked it. AD likes to hit peoples’ hot buttons and boy do I have them….but no more of his degrading, disparaging, and debasement of me. I have a new spring in my step because I have been released from that monster. I forgive him and I have also put him out of my mind. No more will I let him into my personal or emotional space. I have many good blog friends that I know are good people and many are Christians and speak highly of God. We bolster each other’s Christianity…that helps me, I don’t know about you guys. Pamela, you, too! I thank you all and my wonderful AGAPE Christian counselor who has put me together more times than I can count for years now. I now have a huge sphere of friends and there is always one or two that are spoilers and that brings curse of Satan into the group. So, I thank you group. MY FRIENDS! I promise I will TRY to make my posts shorter, but I am just wordy and I type rather fast, so please forgive. I guess I should write a book, as Downdraft suggests, to keep me from boring everyone on here…LOL. No shortage of subject material, that is for sure. You only know the tip of the iceberg. I was even raped, so it goes even further. Ya’ll wanna be characters in my book? I would even leave AD out. That would get him, wouldn’t it? Love you all for being the good people you are!

          • downdraft

            Ie:
            “leave AD out. That would get him, wouldn’t it?”

            But jnora…then where would the humor and laugh parts of your book come from???

          • jnora

            HA! I won’t reply to him, but I am sure he will give enough humor replying to others to give me quite enough material for an Ayn Rand-length novel. People will think it should go into the fiction department of the library because they won’t believe the facts of my life. I won’t even have to spice it up any. There is enough odd stuff in it anyway…like when the Sheriff departments from some small town in GA worked out rides for me from county to county in Sheriff cars get to Atlanta in their cop cars to got to court to get my second divorce. All this while my father was near death in ICU…he did die a few days later. The chain broke down in Macon and I still had 100 miles to go, so I rented a car in Macon. When I got back to Macon, the Enterprise guy (a young man) gave me a ride to my car at least 100 miles away to my car that had had all my transmission fluid fall onto I-75. A trucker pushed me into a truck stop. The truck stop fixed it for me. I wrote a letter to the newspaper in that small town about their police department and how that black cop showed up at the truck stop and with arms folded in front of him and with no expression on his face and said, “I’ll take care of it, Ma’am.” He choreographed the entire thing all the way to Atlanta. Unfortunately, there was an emergency in Macon, but he had a heart of gold. I wrote the local newspaper in that little South Georgia town praising their Sheriff’s department. I received a letter from the Sheriff thanking me for it being in the paper. This was right after 9/11, but I would have done it anytime, especially NOW. Not to make light, as this is a serious problem, but now I probably would have asked for a flack jacket. I think it is deplorable what they are doing to law enforcement. I see the emotional and physical hurt that it is doing to my best friend’s husband that is a cop. I see Hillary backing those thugs and wonder who on earth would ever vote for her. Anyway, see what I mean….people will not believe that.

            Downdraft, I don’t know when, or if, I will actually do this or when I will get it done. However, I choose you to write the forward since you were the one that gave me the inspiration to do it and you were the one that helped me get through this fiasco with AD. Of course, I will use only your online name, but I would love to use your real name. You deserve credit for doing God’s work so well. it will be a Christ-centered book. May not ever go anywhere. If it doesn’t ever get published and does nothing but help convert my granddaughter and her father, it would be my life’s work and would be worth it. I just know that is why the good Lord keeps me here. You have become one of my inspirations and for that I thank you. I grow in the Lord every day. My counselor even noticed it the other day. He has been seeing me for almost 5 years and he knows me better than anyone on earth. He is very protective of me and he loves me (as a Christian, of course). He knows the good in my heart and he also knows all of the awful things I have had to endure. Says it is more than any of his patients in 25 years of his practice. I know that it is only possible due to God in heaven. I feel closer to God in the last year than all of the other years of my life combined. You, my friend, have contributed to that and you have an extra star in heaven for that. I thank you! Perhaps my wordiness will be used for good for a change.

          • downdraft

            …just a thought…I would suspect AD (and those similar) is possessed…i.e. he is not the evil spirit himself, but Satan has put evil spirits in him…and he needs cleansing…just a thought

          • jnora

            If he lived during Jesus’ time, he would be one of those that Jesus would “cast out the demons.” I truly believe that. I really think he need to get psychological treatment, if he isn’t already. If he is, he needs to change counselors!

          • downdraft

            I’m going to sign off here…

            …as far as the “book” writing is concerned, it should not replace the gifted advice of your counselor…

            …my thoughts at the time were to encourage you to address the positives ahead of you, not revisit the pains of the past…they are history…and those with struggles whom you respond to in your future publication can glimpse at the positives, your radiance, and ability to encourage.

            God has put that counselor in your path because He personally selected him…stick with him, he’ll tell you how to handle things…pain-time-is done-with, the best is just ahead.

            …see you

            downdraft

          • jnora

            He has put my counselor in my path and the church pays for it. Please don’t just walk out of my blog life, Downdraft. You encourage me, also. I want my life to be a sum of the good parts. You hear me? My book will encounter my life, but not as “woe is me”s, but as how I handled it to survive. My goal is to thrive instead of survive. TTYL Jnora Thank you for caring!

          • downdraft

            Nah…I’ll be around, here and there.
            Regardless tho, even if none of us are around…you won’t be alone. Do this:
            When you set your table for a meal, set a second one. This is for Jesus with whom you can converse with daily…Yes, HE will ALWAYS be there, invited or otherwise…the extra setting simply acknowledges to Him that you welcome Him.
            Gotta go

        • downdraft

          One for all to consider…often a “loaded media” are the ones who plant dissentions among those who are inclined to vote for someone other than their candidate, …the one for whom they are paid to support.

          He does this to demonstrate that those of us who are strong opponents, of lets say Hillary, “are stupid idiots, unlearned, poor trash etc.,” and

          …thus your decision to vote otherwise must also be very “stupid”.

          So when I read their comments, I simply reject giving them further consideration…too much time, too obvious for lack of substance…

          …almost HUMOROUS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO POORLY ENDOWED WITH STRENGTH AND CHARACTER…

          …and just don’t realize they have been chosen by the crooked media and so called elite because of those limited social and mental skills…

          Easy to identify…consistent, repetitive for content, and an obvious effort to get a rise out of you…through insults…

          This style is not uncommon of those who need to hide behind the written dialog, and would break down weeping should they be forced to face you face to face…actually frightened…they are defined as “Cowards”

          So, yes, ignore these poor, pathetic, and loud mouthed vermin souls…

          ..their behaviors, unwitting to them show they are mental and social outcasts, admitting that they are embarrassingly inferior to your gifts…

          and for that reason , they hate you and are angry at you…pray for them.

      • jnora

        Downdraft… Would you look at AD’s replies to me. There are several of them. I prayed for him and this is what I got. Please stand up for me. I am not what he thinks I am. I am a true Christian that does know a lot about the Bible. You can learn a lot in 66 years with parents that talk to you about God and set an exemplary example from the time you were three. I had a nearly 100% Christian school education, including college and I have regularly attended the Church of Christ all my life. AD doesn’t even attend church… He thinks you don’t have to. All he could get me for was that I speak my texts and my phone put no instead of know. I refuse to let that man make me cry again. I did nothing to make my children go against me. As a matter fact, this afternoon I had in my email a message from my older son saying he wanted to work things out and he signed it love, and then his name. He wants me as his mother. Nor, did I cause my other son to commit suicide as AD once suggested. He will have to answer to God for that one and for what he said to me today. Downdraft, I beg you to read what he wrote to me all afternoon. Everyone must get him off this site some way… Whatever it takes. Please help me. I don’t have the strength, the emotional strength, to deal with such a monstrous man… A man that would say those things to a grieving woman.

        • downdraft

          jnora…This might remind you of someone…:
          ___________________________________
          Luke 10:18

          And He said to them, “I saw Satan
          fall like lightning from heaven.”
          ______________________________________
          PATHETIC HALLOWEEN LOSER

          There are two ways of looking at
          Halloween. Sure, from a Christian perspective it’s not especially great to have the kids dressing up as the devil and whatnot.

          On the other hand, look at it from
          the devil’s perspective:

          You (re: Satan) revolted against God and fell
          from heaven in this primordial struggle against God Almighty Himself.

          In your titanic pride you had high
          hopes of establishing yourself supreme in the universe. You committed
          your greatest act of terrorism against God when you convinced His own precious
          Adam and Eve to revolt against Him.

          You brought death into the human
          race and you thought you had it made when God, as it appeared to you, insanely
          chose to become human.

          On Good Friday you finally had Him
          in your hand and you killed Him with all the savagery your fallen angelic mind
          could invent.

          And now, for two thousand years,
          you’ve been watching your revolt crumble as the Risen One turned all your
          schemes into life for your victims and mockery for you.

          Now, so far from ruling the
          universe, your face is on some stupid mask worn by a 6-year-old and the
          creatures you hoped to destroy are writing meditations like this one to pull
          your pointy nose and remind you that the Christ you killed has defeated you
          utterly.

          Memo to Satan:

          Happy Halloween, loser!

    • ADRoberts

      Just as predicted. You won’t admit you are wrong, even if he admits to your face that this was ALL so his “good friend”, Hillary could win.
      Now, bright boy. Open your eyes. He endorsed the very WORST of the RINOs., And nothing he can do will take them out of the hands of the Bilderbergs who CONTROL them with a LIFE AND DEATH threat.
      What will be your next excuse? Maybe that he is just pretending?
      THIS IS TRUMP. He has NO PRINCIPLES. He will not stand for anything. It is all trying to figure what will work NOW. And I can tell you, NOTHING will work. Look at him. He has CONNED you.

        One question,,,, how many times has Hillory been proven on tv to have lied to us all and perjured herself in front of congress?
        And you accuse Trump of lying?
