You may know that CNN is running a series about Jesus. I haven’t watched it (because I never watch CNN), but I have to admit that I’m a little suspicious. Nevertheless, I'll refrain from passing judgment on something I haven’t seen.
In their article published last week, the author talks about Jesus’ teachings. And that's all fine and dandy, except Jesus is so much more than a teacher...
One of the problems that the left has is they think all religions are the same. They say that in one form or another all religions TEACH you how to live your life and therefore you can choose your religion like you choose what brand of milk you want to buy.
It’s interesting to point out that while liberals REJECT religions (particularly, Christianity) somehow they feel they’re EXPERTS on religion – enough to criticize them…and us...
In any case if you’re a Christian you know perfectly well that not all religions are the same. In fact, Christianity is NOT a religion – it's a THEOLOGY.
You see, in order to understand the difference between Christianity and other religions, you need to understand God's CHARACTER. You need to understand who Jesus IS.
The late D. James Kennedy, pastor of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, used to tell a very effective story to explain why Christianity IS NOT about teaching, but about SAVING GRACE.
The story Dr. Kennedy used to tell to explain Jesus was about a man who falls into a pit about 10 feet deep and 15 feet square. In the pit there’s a gigantic, venomous snake slowly approaching the man who begins to panic. He cries, he yells for help incessantly while the snake slowly but surely moves closer and closer to the man. You can imagine the man’s desperation.
Finally a Buddhist comes along. If you know anything about Buddha you know that he was a man who spent hours and hours on end under a tree trying to figure out why people are so unhappy. Eventually he came up with the idea that people are unhappy because they want things they don’t have. So this Buddhist tells the man in the pit ‘sit down in lotus position, close your eyes and tell yourself this is where you want to be. In this pit with this snake and you’ll be fine’. The man does exactly that, but after his final ‘om’ he isn't convinced and opens his eyes only to realize the snake was much too close for comfort. He jumps over the snake to the other side of the pit and continues shouting for help.
A Hindu shows up and tells the poor man in the pit: ‘close your eyes and tell yourself “this pit doesn’t exist. The snake doesn’t exist” and you’ll be fine’. The man does exactly that, but when he opens his eyes he spots the snake drawing nearer again – he leaps over the snake to the other side one more time and continues screaming for help.
Finally Jesus comes along and He jumps into the pit to join the man. He stands between the man and the snake and immediately helps the man out of the pit by pushing him all the way up to safety. As the man is now safe, the snake gets closer and closer to Jesus, who is still in the pit, and BITES Him…and Jesus dies…
Jesus DIED FOR US.
Buddha didn’t die for us.
Allah didn’t die for us.
Confucius didn’t die for us.
Only Jesus DIED for us.
You see, Christianity is NOT about TEACHINGS – it’s about SALVATION.
Buddha spent years meditating under a tree seeking enlightenment.
Jesus wasn’t looking for enlightenment – He came to SAVE YOU. He gave HIS LIFE for you.
But Jesus is our SAVIOR!
Jesus answered, “I am the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”
You know what the ironic thing is about disrespecting the flag by throwing it on the ground, stomping on it, or setting it ablaze? The fact that that’s the only flag in the world that grants you the right to be that disrespectful. If you do that same thing to a Mexican flag in Mexico, you’re likely to get arrested for it. You do that in any country with that country’s flag, you’re likely to get arrested for it.
The fact of the matter is that these “Americans” have no idea what it’s like to live in a socialistic society. Yes, Obama was working towards making America socialist, but he ultimately failed. He failed because the Founding Fathers were smart enough to place restraints on the government with checks and balances and with presidential term limits. Obama could only ever have 8 years of running the country. At least directly. He maybe could’ve had a puppet in the White House, but thankfully that didn’t happen.
Now, back to my previous point about Americans having no idea what it’s like to live under absolute socialism. That has its pros and cons. The obvious pros are that no one had to suffer under socialism here in the States, even with Obama. But they also don’t know what others in the world have to suffer through. There are billions of people in this world that don’t know what true freedom is.
I’m a foreigner myself. I came to this country when I was in my preteens, so I didn’t experience socialism in anyway except for one: I wasn’t allowed to enter my country of origin (Argentina), say to visit family, and leave without having a little piece of paper that said both parents authorized me leaving the country. Even if I’m with either or both parents. You see, in Argentina, children belong to the government. If you want to do anything with them outside of the country, the government will stop you if you don’t have that “authorization” paper. Now, that’s relatively understandable for say, a five-year-old. But, like I said, I was in my preteens and entering my teenage years. I wasn’t some little kid that didn’t know what was happening. But the government didn’t care. That’s socialism (at least one aspect) for you. The government is the supreme ruler and you must obey everything it says, regardless of how silly its rules are. (Don’t mistake that for following the rule of law in the U.S., mind you).
But you see, America was structured the way it was for the sole purpose of keeping things like that from happening. They wanted the government to have as little power as possible while still being able to protect its citizens from harm, both from within and without.
“Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” – Ronald Reagan.
They wanted the government to be powerful enough to protect its citizens but not so powerful that it can and will run people’s lives. Socialism does the exact opposite. It doesn’t care about protecting its people and most certainly runs their lives.
So that’s what’s so ironic about disrespecting the flag: They do that to the very flag that gives them the freedom to do that. And they want a government that will ultimately take away many of their freedoms, including that one. They believe good to be evil and evil to be good. What’s very clearly evil (abortion, transgenderism, sexual lust and immorality) they believe to be good. And what’s clearly good (God, Christ, prayer, worship of God, what the American flag represents) they believe to be evil.
The Left has worked well to destroy all things that are good in this country. And they’ve deceived people into believing that the U.S. is the single biggest detriment to the world in its entire history. That’s why there are people that disrespect the flag as they do. They have taught people that socialism, the governmental equivalent to a chokehold, is good, while capitalism, the governmental equivalent to a handshake (as in both parties are equal and free to do business), is evil.
But here’s the kicker, while the Left believes it’s succeeding, God is watching and chuckles at the sight of evil believing it will be victorious.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”

House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) confirmed on Wednesday that President Trump’s transition team and possibly Trump himself were under surveillance by the Obama administration. The surveillance had absolutely nothing to do with the so called FBI investigation on Russia hacking, of which no evidence has been found. Also, it appears that the surveillance itself was conducted legally but the leaking of the information appears to be illegal.
This new information, of course, vindicates President Trump and those in the conservative media who supported Trump’s claims.
None of this is a surprise, of course. The question is what happens next?
Next we need to understand who knew what and when. Next we need to understand if Obama knew. I personally assume he knew – he knows everything and nothing was done unless he approved of it. But we'll see...
Now let me ask you this: what is the point of spying on the president elect? What motivates Obama and company to do things like this? What motivates the left to threat the President with impeachment? What motivates leftist journalists, such as NYT’s David Brooks to say ‘Trump will have to decide if he prefers to resign, be impeached or get assassinated’?
We know the deep state is real and very dangerous. The Trump presidency won’t be a walk in the park. Here’s a man who didn’t have to run for president to live a luxurious life. In fact now that he’s president his life is more complicated than before – and he’s potentially an assassination target. He didn’t need any of this and yet he’s assumed the responsibility to turn this country around so that OUR lives are better. Whether he’ll succeed or not is yet to be seen. But you have to give him credit for the courage.
But back to my question: what motivates the deep state to attack Trump like this?
You could say it’s the desire of power. Or the desire of money. Or a combination of both. And I would agree. But this isn't the whole story - there's more...
You see, the problem is much more profound than that.
The root cause of this problem is this:
The Obamas of the world, with so much hunger for power, are not in the business of making YOUR life better. They’re in the business of making THEIR lives better.
They’re self-centered. They’re selfish. They’re egotistical. And at the heart of their selfishness is their rejection of righteousness and their embracing of EVIL.
Think about it this way: what’s the purpose of man? Why are you here? Why did God create you in His likeness?
He created us so that we grow more and more holy. God created us in His image so on some level we’re supposed to be holy. After all, He is holy so we have the tools to be holy too.
None of us really are – not yet anyway. We’re born in sin and as we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we begin our journey to become more holy. We become righteous – we’re ‘imputed’ righteousness. This means we’re not righteous on our own – but God sees us as righteous just by virtue of our Faith.
Our job as Christians is to become as holy in this life as we can be. That’s what it means that we’ve been created in God’s likeness. We have what it takes to get there because God's made sure of it.
But not everybody’s mission in life is to become more Christ-like.
People like Obama, Pelosi, Ryan, McCain, Hillary, Bill Clinton, etc. have a different mission in life: SELF-SATISFACTION. And self-satisfaction comes in different forms – for Obama it’s evidently POWER. For Bill Clinton is more about SEX…and I guess power too. They seek the short-term satisfaction for THIS LIFE at the expense of their ETERNITY. How foolish!
Is the Deep State panicking?
They sure are – but for the wrong reasons.
They’re panicking because they fear losing their power – and the money that comes with it.
But the Deep State SHOULD PANIC for the RIGHT REASON – as all of us should.
What’s the right reason to panic?
Being left behind – nope, not economically. By being left behind I mean our inability to enter Heaven. Why would anyone risk burning in hell for an eternity when you can have eternal life in Jesus Christ?
Friend, if you’re not as bad as Obama, but you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior I urge you to do it right now. He knows your heart – He knows of your sins. But He’ll forgive you if you truly repent.
If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Not only was he inarguably the worst president in American history, but he was the most crooked one too! Thetruthdivision.com released an article listing 78 illegal things Obama did during his time in the Oval Office. Here are just some of the crimes Obama committed:
And many other things that the article covers.
But here’s the point: Obama is a CROOK!
One thing that the article doesn’t mention is the fact that he has also wire-tapped Trump Towers to spy on then President-elect, Donald Trump. So that’s one more thing that he can add to his crook résumé’.
In the article in which I talked about how Trump is the people’s champion, I briefly mentioned that no other past president (perhaps with the exception of Bill Clinton) is more deserving of a jail sentence than Barack Hussein Obama. One look through that list of transgressions is enough to both convince and remind me of the fact that Obama was crooked during his presidency. (And likely will remain just as crooked in his post-presidency life.)
What lies at the center of this crookedness shouldn’t come as a surprise to most if not all of you. What lies at the center is evil. Evil itself. You see, contrary to what the Left would want you to believe, man is born evil. He’s born a sinner. And it’s only through the divine ordinance of God that we can be good. There can be no good in this world without God. Think about it, you can’t spell GOOD without G.O.D. Since we know this to be true, we also know that Obama and just about everyone on the Left (and those within the Republican establishment) is evil. And crookedness is simply one part of evil.
During the 2016 Presidential Race, Trump would often refer to his opponent, Hillary Clinton, as Crooked Hillary. And he was right. With all the things that Hillary has done, not to mention the scam that was the Clinton Global Initiative, one can accurately say that Hillary was a crook. But the title of crook doesn’t just go to Hillary. Since she’s been defeated, and out of the picture, there’s no longer a need to refer to her as Crooked Hillary, regardless of how true that really is. Instead, we should start referring to Barack Obama as Crooked Barry. Since that reference is just as true as Hillary’s, it works.
But back to my previous point, about Obama and the Left being evil, the reason I say that they are evil is because they live without God in their hearts. You see, man is born evil, but he can choose to remain evil or turn to God and be righteous. Man can be good only through God. Now, you may be thinking: “But Freddie, a person can be good without God. A total stranger can be nice to another person out of the kindness of their own heart without God.” Well, here’s the thing. Under whose standard is a person good? Society’s, government’s, or God’s?
In today’s society, it’s good to be gay. It’s cool. It’s good to want to enter the ladies' restroom if you’re a man. It’s good if you’re crossing the border illegally and entering a country illegally. It’s good if you claim to be a refugee, claiming to be running away from the very oppressive rule you’re trying to impose on other people and in other countries. Government (at least its establishment) thinks the same. Society is progressive... Government establishment is progressive... God is God. God thinks that all of these things are wrong. And He should know, since He created absolutely everything, including the dark angel who thinks these things are good.
God has said that being gay is a sin. It’s not right. God didn’t intend for man to be with man, or woman to be with woman. He doesn’t want women and children to be in danger of being raped or killed because a burly man claims he thinks is a woman. He doesn’t want people to enter a new country and make it into the one they left or escaped from. That’s not immigration, that’s invasion. It’s not society’s or government’s standard of goodness that we should strive to meet. It’s God’s. And we can only hope to meet it if the Holy Spirit lives within us.
People think they’ll enter heaven if they’re good people and do good things. Those people are wrong. It’s not through works that you’re granted access to heaven, it’s through the Lord Jesus Christ. I don’t know if Obama thinks he’s going to heaven. He probably doesn’t believe in it and won’t believe until he’s gone from this earth. But I can tell you now, he’s Hell-bound. Unless he finds Christ, that will be his ultimate destination.
“What shall we say then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is; a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works.”

In case you've missed it, Cate Blanchett has recently said in an interview with Stephen Colbert that her moral compass is 'in her vagina'. What Blanchett doesn’t realize is that this sexist comment actually feeds the misogynists she's so desperately trying to combat.
You see, if instead of Blanchett saying this dumb comment it was someone like Johnny Depp or Matthew McConaughey saying ‘my moral compass is my penis’, you would immediately call either man a pig. And that’s because such a comment would MAKE these men pigs.
When you have a woman lowering herself to a sex object she’s falling right into these pigs’ hands. Think about it: chauvinists don’t even have to make any efforts to convince women they’re absolutely worthless and nothing but sexual beings. These ‘feminists’ are doing all the job for them. Cate Blanchett has put herself in the ‘just-a-sexual-being’ category. She’s nothing but a sex toy. Her emotions, intelligence, talents and spirituality are absolutely irrelevant – all that matters is her vagina.
'Pigs' of the world: thank FEMINISM for that.
Feminists have now become misogynists.
They hate themselves so much that they’re willing to lower themselves to the status of ‘stuff’. They’re nothing but stuff – a sexual object to be used and discarded by the very men they say they hate.
If you’re a woman, like I am, you know that women like Cate Blanchett are hardly a role model for anything moral.
You see, I refuse to let anyone – male or female – put me in a little box labeled ‘sex toy’. You cannot expect others – male or female – to respect you if you don’t respect yourself.
Ladies, young and not so young, should be VERY CAREFUL who they listen to. DO NOT let ANYONE fool you into thinking that your sexual organ can dictate anything positive in your life. If you let it rule your life, you’ll be miserable. Why? Because even YOU won’t be able to respect yourself when you allow your animal instincts define you.
Nobody who loves women – and I doubt Cate Blanchett loves women or even herself – would talk to women or about women like that. A good man – a GODLY man – would NEVER even imply that a woman’s worth is her sexual organ. And a good woman – a GODLY woman – would NEVER waste a second of her time with a man with such mindset.
Do you know what the best moral compass is?
God teaches us to respect ourselves and others. God has instituted marriage and family because He knows a good family is the best foundation for a solid, prosperous life. Look around you and you’ll see how people raised in broken marriages tend to have more issues in life – from financial issues to spiritual issues.
But God intended men and women to be GODLY. He doesn’t want men to abuse women or women to disrespect men. The Bible teaches men to love their wives as they love themselves. To love them like Jesus loves the church. And women are supposed to respect their husbands.
With the kind of husband and wife the Bible commands, there’s no room for disrespect.
I feel sorry for Cate Blanchett and anyone who feels the same way. Misogynists rub their hands when they hear women trash themselves like this. All they have to do is get them into bed (something obviously easy to do with women like Blanchett) and throw them into the garbage the following morning, assuming they feel like spending the whole night with these women. How sad...
I truly feel sorry because it doesn’t have to be this way for women.
Ladies, don’t believe these lies. You’re VALUABLE. You’re WORTHY of LOVE.
Jesus LOVES YOU and you have to aim high when looking for a husband.
Don’t settle for less - you’ll save yourself a lifetime of regret.
Fathers, teach your little girls to love themselves as Jesus loves them.
Mothers, teach your little boys to love girls like Jesus loves the church.
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up His life for her.
By now you know that Derrick Watson, US District Judge for the District of Hawaii, has stopped Trump’s travel ban. You may not know that the basis for the ruling is NOT Trump’s executive order’s constitutionality, but rather Trump’s comments on CNN during the campaign trail.
In other words, candidate Trump said something back in 2016, which Derrick Watson didn’t like, and now the judge feels like it’s time for revenge.
The constitutionality of the judge ruling is in question – I don’t know what Trump is going to do about it. But clearly the Judge has overstepped his power.
But this Judge’s decision to stop the travel ban on the basis of some comment back in 2016 isn’t the worst part. There is a bigger problem here that I’d like to point out.
And no, I’m not referring to the possibility that another liberal judge might one day stop Trump from sending troops to the Middle East if doing so is in the best interest of our National Security. Yes, this would be a problem. And Watson’s ruling is a problem because he’s setting a precedent in interfering with the Executive Branch of government in its ability to protect Americans. But the problem I’m referring to is so much bigger than that…
You see, our Founding Fathers were right. They were CHRISTIANS who believed man is sinful in nature. The understanding of this key principle based on the Bible has created the most free and prosperous society the world has ever known. The understanding of our sinful nature on the part of our Founding Fathers is the REASON Americans are FREE.
Let me explain.
The Framers, as you know, created the division of powers: Executive, Judicial and Legislative Branches. They also created the division between Federal government and State and Local governments. And in fact, the Framers granted LIMITED powers to our government – State, Federal, Local, Executive, Judicial and Legislative. They all have limited powers according to our Constitution.
Why? Why did the Framers do that?
Because power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Our Founding Fathers knew that when you give too much power to ANYBODY there’s a high chance that that person will ABUSE his power. They gave us checks and balances BECAUSE THEY KNEW man is sinful.
And yes, man is absolutely fallen and inclined to ABUSE whatever power he has. History confirms this fact. Hitler, Stalin, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Un – these are all examples of individuals with ABSOLUTE POWER and no checks and balances. They are also all MURDERERS.
When you remove the restraints from men and give them absolute power, their SINFUL NATURE prevails and they impose TYRANNY.
Liberals like this Hawaiian judge believe that man is not sinful, but rather good in nature. And society makes him bad. Man is a victim of society and he only needs a good government to rule over him. History tells us that’s not true.
Liberalism leads to TOTALITARIANISM
NOT BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO TOTALITARIANISM
BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO FREEDOM
When you understand this principle, like our Founding Fathers did, then you realize we need checks and balances so that we can all be free and prosper.
Liberals are not only opposing this travel ban – they’re jeopardizing your safety and YOUR FREEDOMS.
There is not one example in history where rulers with absolute power ever restrained themselves and allowed people to be free. Not one example in history.
The Hawaiian Judge is displaying signs of authoritarianism. He’s actually proving Christians are right.
He’s proving liberalism leads to abuse of power and Christianity leads to freedom.
The Judge doesn’t like the travel ban because of what Trump said in 2016 and he’s using HIS POWER to put YOUR LIFE at risk. That, my dear friend, is what totalitarians do. They have ZERO respect for your life. If you give this Judge more power, he’ll abuse it even more. If you remove all restraints from this man, he’ll turn into Hitler or Stalin.
In any case, God is in control. I don’t know why He’s allowing this judge to overstep his power. Perhaps He’s trying to take us back to our Founding Fathers' philosophy. Or perhaps He’s testing Trump. I don’t know.
But I do know that while it’s true that we’re all sinful in nature, we can also free ourselves from sin. When you reject Jesus, you’re a slave – a slave to your desires of power, money, women, sex, drugs, etc. But when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you’re FREE from all these demons.
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”
Breitbart news reported this week that a man was ‘brutally assaulted by group of men at a Brooklyn fast food restaurant after he offered to do a deed for them’. The man offered to pay for their meal after they walked into the restaurant shouting that no one would give them a dollar. But one of the savages ‘went off on a tirade against the victim, saying, “I’ve got money, I’ve got money” and “Mind your f* business”’.
Not only that, but what happened next was even more appalling…
From Breitbart News:
‘”Can I get No. 12”? one woman asked a cashier, while the victim lay in a fetal position behind her’
So you get the picture – not only did a group of animals beat up an innocent man for wanting to do a good deed, but according to the report, NOBODY in the restaurant even tried to help the poor man. It wasn’t until the police arrived that the victim got any help at all.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?
I’ll tell you what’s wrong with people – they don’t have the Holy Spirit in them.
NOBODY who has the Holy Spirit in them would beat somebody up or look the other way when we see someone hurting like this. We would help the man immediately. You just don’t ignore someone who needs help. Period.
But decades of liberalism has taken us to this point – where life has no value. Remember, according to the liberal view, we're just descendants of APES.
You don’t get to accept the mass murder of unborn children unless you have TOTAL DISREGARD for human life. And that's LIBERALISM.
I remember not long ago in one anti-abortion post on Facebook, someone who supposedly opposes abortion said ‘when a baby is fully formed, abortion is wrong’. I remember replying to him: ‘and what exactly where you in your mother’s womb before you were “fully formed”? A rat?’
Human life is human life.
Liberals teach you that your life is absolutely worthless.
But God teaches you differently.
God gave us the 10 commandments – He gave us the Bible so that we would live a righteous life here on earth, and He gave us Jesus so that we could have eternal life. He loves us SO much that He gave his only begotten son that whoever (yes, whoever!) believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. Let me say that again: WHOEVER believes in Him will have eternal life. See John 3:16
And when you DO believe in Him, guess what? You don’t KILL, you don’t STEAL, you don’t BEAT UP INNOCENT MEN!
These savages who beat up the good Samaritan need a good dose of the Bible. If everybody in the world followed Scriptures:
And on and on...You get the idea.
The problem with our society is we have abandoned God. We need the Bible back into our schools. We need Jesus now more than ever before!
Love is what Jesus teaches us. We’re supposed to love one another. We’re supposed to serve one another. We’re not supposed to beat up one another. And we’re not supposed to ignore hurting people on the floor so that we can order a burger. We are not animals, for God’s sake!
I think it’s time for us to push our Christian values much more strongly. We, Christians, know better. Not only must we set a good example, but we must also preach. That’s how we show love for people as ignorant as those restaurant customers. In fact, the good Samaritan gives us a great example of what we must do. Yes, you risk getting beat up – but we must continue our effort to show love.
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
The socialist group Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) recently reported that they’ve tripled membership since Donald Trump was elected president. The group recently published a strategy to combat the new President. It reads ‘On November 8, voters in the United States narrowly elected an openly racist, misogynist and nativist candidate for president’
From the strategy:
‘Our vision of democratic socialism is necessarily partial and speculative, and is in no way intended to be a blueprint for a democratic socialist society. To the contrary, the specific contours of the future to which we aspire will be democratically determined not by us, but rather by those who live it.’
In other words, the DSA thinks that the specific contours of our future ‘democratic socialist’ society will be determined by ‘those who live it’. They believe in ‘democracy’, apparently. But wait, didn’t we just have ‘those who live’ in this country democratically elect Trump on Election Day?
You can continue reading the report – it’s actually pretty funny. But my main point here is to highlight the lies the left has to appeal to in order to sound ‘democratic’. The truth is there’s nothing democratic about their ways – they don’t like this administration and they think you must be an idiot for voting Trump.
The good news for us who want to live in a REPUBLIC is the left is absolutely confused and in total disarray. From the document:
‘In their current form, however, the Left and progressive movements are not well positioned to build the multiracial organizations and coalitions necessary to confront the scourge of right-wing racism and anti-immigrant politics. Historically the Left has been, and, despite the best intentions of many, continues to be dominated by white activists (often middle class men). Organizations of the Left (including DSA) generally reflect the interests, aspirations, and cultural assumption of white working- and middle class individuals more than people of color. Several other factors have also played an important role in limiting the development of multiracial leftist organizations and multiracial coalitions that include a significant leftist presence. These include structural barriers that often constrain the participation of working-class and poor activists in political organizing (such as lack of time, energy and economic resources), the racial segregation of U.S. society that is typically reflected in the demographic makeup of activist organizations, and an individualistic national conversation about race that omits any discussion of class.’
You see, they’re so focused on making sure that they build a ‘multi-racial’ organization that they don’t seem to understand that the rejection of the leftist agenda last November includes the rejection of such characterizations. We, conservatives, don’t see color. Most of us are Christians who know we're all God's children.
The idea that some leftist will have a better understanding of how I feel about being a Hispanic woman is ridiculous. I don’t want some arrogant socialist to tell me how I’m supposed to feel. But to the extent that they think they’re smarter than those minorities they claim to protect is a sure way to self-destruction.
Now, I wonder why they leave the LGBT community out...looks like they're too intolerant to incorporate gays and lesbians in their plans, don't you think? I smell discrimination!
Minority representation is the focus of the left. Jobs and freedom is the focus of conservatism. The more time the left spends on ensuring ‘equal representation’ of minorities, the less time they’re spending on actually doing any harm. They’re fighting each other – the ‘white activists (often middle class men)’ who are currently running the left will have to FIGHT to stay relevant, while the minorities, who want a piece of the pie, will have to ATTACK those very white activists.
The more infighting, the more distracted they are – good.
What the left doesn’t seem to understand, though, is that God is in control. They desperately want to be in control – they speak about freedom, but they don’t want you to be free. They want you to think the way THEY think. If you don’t, you’re an idiot or a racist. They want you to do what THEY want you to do. If you don’t and if you’re lucky enough to live in America, they PUNISH you (think the Obamacare individual mandate). But if you live in places like Cuba or North Korea, they just KILL YOU.
That’s who the left has been since the beginning of time.
They’re not in control – God is. And God allows them to cause harm for a reason – He wants YOUR HEART. God has every right to impart JUSTICE on ALL of us and send us all to hell, but instead He offers us the GRACE of Salvation – but we must BELIEVE first.
As individuals, we have two options: we can depend on GOVERNMENT or we can depend on GOD
People who choose to depend on government will be sorely disappointed. But those of us who choose to depend on God will never be disappointed. He has a promise for us. And He’ll keep it.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
When Donald Trump was elected in 2016, it was with the idea that he would return the country to the people. Part of that includes fighting back against the establishment on both sides of the aisle. Mostly, fighting the Left. And he’s doing just that only 2 months into his presidency.
You might’ve heard on the news that Trump is accusing his predecessor Barack Obama of wire-tapping his phone lines. This is somewhat of a counter-measure against the Russia hacking accusations. How, you may ask? Well, here’s the thing. How would news organizations know what Trump was saying to foreign leaders if no one was wire-tapping his phones? How would they know that Trump was doing ANYTHING with Russia unless he was being spied on?
You see, unless Trump was being ILLEGALLY SPIED UPON, there’s no way any news media could credibly say that Trump worked alongside Russia to win the election. So either the news media lied when they said Russia hacked the election, or Obama illegally spied on the new president, which could land him in jail.
If Trump can successfully prove that Obama did in fact illegally wire-tap him, then we can have the first president ever to send a former president to jail, and none other are more deserving of it than Obama… well, maybe Bill, but that’s another story. In any case, what this means is that Trump will look to do what no other Republican has the guts to do: FIGHT BACK against an elite establishment and neutralize them. Now, in said elite establishment are plenty of Republicans too, so it’s no wonder none of them want to fight. But part of the reason Trump was elected was because he was going to fight and we knew he would fight. He’s not a politician. He’s not financially tied to anyone in Washington. He doesn’t owe anyone any favors. He’s the very definition of an outsider and truly is the people’s champion, because he’s the closest person in all of Washington to the people.
And that’s evident in the multiple rallies that Trump’s held. He has the people on his side. And he listens to them. It matters more to him what we have to say about him than what politicians or the news media say about him. At no point did he believe in any of the polls that had him losing the election because he knew they were fake. In fact, he’s coined the term ‘fake news’ simply because he didn’t believe what the news organizations had to say about him… and neither did we.
The American people are on his side because we got tired of what Washington was doing, particularly with what Obama was doing, and we knew that Hillary would’ve done more of the same. The people were on his side because we believed we were losing the country and we wanted it back. And when looking at Trump back in the early days of the race for the nomination, people agreed with what Trump was saying and related to him. They felt a connection with Trump. They knew that this was the guy they wanted in the White House. That they NEEDED in the White House if they were ever to get the country back.
That’s why, even today, even though news media organizations sometimes say that we’re getting tired of Trump and his support is faltering, that even more people cling to Trump and show their support. They want to proclaim that they will never drop support for Trump unless he doesn’t deliver on his campaign promises. The people are with him and always will be with him as long as he does the things he promised to do. As long as the people feel they are getting the country back and we’re back on the right track.
And God has masterfully made it so we would get the right person at the right time. In 2012, I’ll be honest, I thought Romney was the right guy to undo the things Obama was doing and was planning on doing. But God knew what was in Romney’s mind and heart. He knew that Romney wasn’t going to do much to help this country return on the right track. He knew that if Romney were to win in 2012, it was all the more likely that Hillary would’ve won in 2016. Or even the socialist nut Bernie Sanders. So He decided that Obama would win then so that Trump could win now.
In 2012, I didn’t know why God allowed Obama to win, but in 2016, I found out why. And I’m thankful.

You may have heard that border crossings have dropped by 40% since Trump took office. You may also know that Univision’s Jorge Ramos said the ‘Trump effect’ is causing ‘fear stronger than any wall’. For someone like me, who came into this country legally and have never broken the law (anywhere in the world, I must add) this is good news.
Not long ago I met with a Venezuelan CEO of a weight management company which fundamentally serves the Hispanic community in the US. He told me that the community is vastly scared of Trump. I didn’t say anything, but I thought ‘I’m Hispanic and I’m not afraid of Trump. Why would they be?’ Then, of course, the obvious response: I’m a US Citizen now and I have never been in this country illegally.
Who is this CEO doing business with?
Possibly the same people that Jorge Ramos serves: illegal immigrants.
I have to admit that what brought me to this country initially was better opportunities. But never in a million years would I have entered this country illegally just to earn more money than in Latin America.
The one point my fellow Hispanics need to understand is that money cannot be the driver of our decisions. There’s still right and wrong in this world and breaking the law just to make a little bit more money makes you no better than a CEO who breaks the law to make a lot more money. Think of Enron or Bernie Madoff. The only difference between Madoff and the illegal Hispanic community is the AMOUNT of money they’re after – but the motivation to break the law is the same.
What is the first commandment in the Bible?
Exodus 20:3 reads ‘you shall have no other gods before me’
That means we cannot worship anybody or anything above God. When you worship something, like money, or someone above God, that’s when you get into trouble.
Think about it this way: when you prioritize smoking, or drugs, or money or sex in your life, you’re more likely to get hurt. God’s commandments are not meant to hold us back, but rather to protect us from harm. Like when parents teach their children not to run around a swimming-pool. It’s the same principle – God is protecting us.
One of the most attractive qualities of America is its rule of law. There’s no other country in the world like America in this respect. If your intentions are to break the law in any way, you have to expect some level of punishment.
My fellow Hispanics: what you’re teaching your children is that anything goes. You’re teaching them that the end justifies the means. Don’t be surprised if your children take breaking the law up a notch and begin stealing or… worse. You’re a role model to them. The end never justifies the means.
I lived in different countries before coming to the US. In all of them I always tried to assimilate. I bought a Brazilian flag when I lived in Brazil, and the Mexican flag when I lived in Mexico. I tried to learn and communicate in Portuguese, I tried to learn Mexican words and use some of their mannerisms.
The problem with the Hispanic community is that most of them don’t care to assimilate – they don’t learn English and naturally they themselves put limits to their potential by virtue of refusing to learn the language.
Since their priority is money, they don’t really care to learn the language, or to learn US history or even politics to at least try to understand who really is undermining their future – it’s the left, of course. Here in America as well as in their home countries, the left is on a mission to keep people poor.
Hispanics, for the most part, would call themselves Christians. They should follow what Scriptures say about their obligations when they’re immigrants: they should respect the law.
You must obey all my decrees and regulations. You must not commit any of these detestable sins. This applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you
