Status Report on the War Between Good and Evil

After he is inaugurated Donald Trump is expected to receive an invitation to meet the Queen of England some time next year.

I'm SO glad she hasn't yet been succeeded by Charles, who would/will be an absolute disaster for England with his multicultural views of religion that embrace both Islam and Catholicism.   I'm not sure what the Queen herself believes,  but thanks to Henry the Eighth the monarch is the head of the Church of England, and she has always had the reputation of putting her duty as monarch above all else.  Charles has been reported to want to change the monarch's title from "Defender of the Faith" to "Defender of faiths."  THAT is scary.  Poor England, to have lost the reason for its former strength in its illustrious faithful Protestants.  Don't know William's beliefs, I hope they aren't as scary as his father's. 

Recently I watched the first season of the Netflix series, The Crown, which is about Elizabeth's reign. It's no doubt fictionalized, and probably wrong on some points, but the believable and admirable theme is the priority of the Crown itself as the symbol of the nation, to be put above all personal concerns, and Elizabeth is presented as dedicated to that duty.  The series also shows her being schooled as a young girl in the English Constitution, and quoting it as defining the monarch's foremost duty as to God, above the Crown.  (How sad that God was left out of our Constitution.)   But anyway, God is presented as the ruler of the nation above the monarch, a genuinely Protestant point of view, which she as devoted to duty must still uphold.

The recent decision of the people of England to leave the European Union has probably gone some way to protecting the Crown from eventual subjugation under alien government, ultimately ruled by the two major totalitarianisms, Islam and the Roman papacy, entwined with the totalitarian ideology of Communism/Marxism.  The two gigantic religions represent the two legs of the Roman Empire as depicted in the Book of Daniel the Prophet, in Nebuchadnezzar's dream of the statue representing the succession of the empires from Babylon to Rome. 

What's surprising about both Brexit, the English vote to leave the EU, and Trump's winning the American Presidency, is that it suggests that Biblical prophecy of the One World Order has been set back for a time.  It's all been coming together so neatly in line with prophecy that it's even rather shocking to think God is giving us a break from its inexorable march.  If Marine Le Pen wins the Presidency of France there will be three great nations that now have some hope of reclaiming their threatened sovereignty and culture.  I'm not completely sure of Le Pen but Nigel Farage says he's supporting her, which is in her favor.  Maybe poor miserable Sweden will be emboldened by their example to join them, a nation awash in violent alien refugees who rape their women with impunity.  It would be nice to think Germany would join us, because their citizens are also suffering mightily from the violent Muslim population that is being forced on them by Political Correctness/Cultural Marxism.   In Germany this Political Correctness that has poisoned the minds of the leaders of the European Union has even been taking away the apartments and houses of citizens to give them to these foreigners.  This is sheer evil being treated as if it were good.  In France where the Muslim population is very large they have been torching cars in the thousands for years, taking time out occasionally to kill people at work and play. 

And of course all this is because Europe has abandoned its Christian foundations.  They are under judgment by the God they have abandoned who is now abandoning them to their enemies.  The Bible reveals that one of the punishments for turning away from God and God's Law is a nation's being overtaken by foreigners.  This is what is going on in America too.

That being the case, any political victories over this trend have to be short-lived unless there is a great movement back to God.  Then and only then would the judgment be lifted.  How we need a great revival of true Christianity.   Not politics, not counter-violence, just revival, Knee Power.

(I just got a picture in my mind of Queen Elizabeth on her knees before God to intercede for her nation.  What a wonderful thought.  The Crown can and must bow to the King of Kings.  One day all crowns will be flung at His feet.  Then let all Europe and America follow suit.  It makes me cry.)


=============================================
The fact is that the history of the entire world is outlined in the Bible and without that revelation history is incomprehensible.  From the Fall in Eden the world has been dominated by Satan and his hordes of demons, because he succeeded in turning our first parents against God, winning him the right to rule over us as "the Prince of this world" in Jesus' words.  All the religions of the world are his invention, sometimes containing vague memories of the true God but always twisted into something that keeps the peoples enslaved to the demons.  From the beginning, however, God promised to send a Savior to free us from bondage to the sin that brings God's judgment against us, which also enslaves us to the demons.  This prophecy is repeated in hints throughout the Old Testament until finally He arrived,  God Himself incarnate as a Man, which is what the entire New Testament is about.  He lived the perfect righteous life of a perfectly sinless man, and then chose to die to pay for the sins of those who would believe on Him, to save us from an eternity of punishment for our sins.  He is the only Man who could do that for us, being perfectly sinless.  Although he was God during His life on earth He nevertheless lived and died as a man in order to be the propitiation for human sins. 

That's what Christians believe.  That's what has to be reclaimed if there is any hope of restoring the formerly Christian nations and bringing peace in the world.  If God would permit us a great revival of true Christian faith it would no doubt also convert great numbers of others, such as Muslims and Roman Catholics who aren't saved.
That would be a wonderful reprieve, and the world would be dramatically changed by it, and millions would be rescued from the bondage to Satan. 

But Christianity always deteriorates over time in this fallen world, with the help of Satan of course, so even such a wonderful blessing would eventually come under the devil's influence again.  Prosperity brings complacency, we lose our vigilance, evil takes advantage of us again and again.  Only when Jesus returns to claim His rightful rule over all Creation will Satan be banished and we be freed once and for all from his influence.  We've been watching the prophetic signs of the coming End increasing for some time now, all an accumulation of evil which the Lord's return will put a stop to, a trend which Trump  seems to have interrupted.  The hatred of Trump and his supporters is so furious, irrational, uncivilized, unAmerican, crazed, barbarian, thuggish, murderous, it will be  something of a miracle if he is able to be the President he wants to be for long enough to carry out his promises. 

Even if Trump is God's mercy on us, we still have to repent of our sins, the churches have to reform, we have to pray constantly to maintain the blessing.  That's a lot to ask of us, but what is impossible for us is possible with God, so I'm hoping and praying.  For America to be revived, for the UK, for Europe, for the salvation of millions of the unsaved.  And against the forces of evil which are of course working feverishly every second to destroy as many of us as possible.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Which should be celebrated as thanks to God for His bountiful providence, as it was by the Pilgrims.

Here are some earlier posts about that first Thanksgiving, true accounts along with the anti-American revisionist version the Cultural Marxists have foisted on our schools over the last few decades.

Hillary may not have won the popular vote if election fraud can be proved

The attack on the Electoral College comes up in every election and has to be answered in every election.  We have the Electoral College because America is composed of separate sovereign states and this is a way to protect their sovereignty.  If we didn't have it the big cities could easily dominate the vast geography of the country and obliterate the separate states.  Most people will have seen the map that shows the election results by counties rather than states, how red it is from sea to shining sea, with little tiny islands of blue mostly where the big cities are.  It's all that red that the anti-Electoral College argument seeks to disenfranchise.  The idea that the popular vote should trump geography sounds sensible but it's only an argument to disenfranchise the rural areas.  I heard Jesse Ventura on Infowars a few days ago calling for a change from the Electoral College to the popular vote and all I could think was how utterly ignorant he is. 

Here's one of the inevitable necessary defenses of the Electoral College that comes up every election:  Fox News on The current Democrat plot to get Electors to defy the people's will.  This is the plot based on the idea that Hillary won the popular vote though Trump won the Electoral Vote, so they want to reflect the popular vote over the Electoral Vote, but the plan seems to be to talk (or threaten) electors into changing their vote for Hillary no matter what the popular vote in that state was.  The Electoral Vote reflects the popular vote for each state, but the actual numbers can vary enough so that for the nation overall there can be more popular votes than the Electoral votes reflect.   Watch the video on the right hand side.   It starts out with the argument that elections would be very different if they were determined by the popular vote.  Right now candidates aim for the electoral votes in each state, they direct their attention to each state according to it's electoral votes.  If elections were determined by the popular vote they would have an entirely different strategy.  In other words, for this particular election it would be utterly unfair to try to change the results on the basis of the popular vote.

HOWEVER, it seems to me that there is enough evidence to show that if illegal votes are taken into account, Hillary did NOT win the popular vote anyway.  Alex Jones said on a recent show that he intends eventually to cover the evidence for this claim. (As of today, the 24th, he's rerun his interview with Bev Harris about how huge fraud is possible, but possible isn't the same thing as proven in a particular election).  I've posted some information below about how the vote could easily have been manipulated, through central computer control of the voting machines, along with the statement by the investigator that the manipulation would favor Hillary, but also through using ineligible people to vote, illegal aliens or dead people, and again, evidence of intention by Democrats to manipulate the vote for Hillary.   One fraud watcher, Gregg Phillips claimed in a tweet that he counted over three million noncitizen voters on the rolls in this election.  The tweet is there but I haven't been able to find the original source of that number.   There are claims that there are millions of dead people registered to vote as well.  If these claims are true, and I hope Alex Jones can come up with the evidence, Hillary most definitely did NOT win the popular vote, so the argument about the Electoral College in this case would be irrelevant anyway.

Here are some links to allegations of election fraud:

Some random rambles on the meaning of the Trump election and what we're up against

{Update:  I've changed some things in this post since I originally wrote it.  About waterboarding and about the Hamilton cast booing Pence.}

Fox News has this article on Sanctuary Cities.  Those are American cities that have committed themselves to protecting illegal aliens against our immigration laws and enforcers.  Ain't that sweet?  How on earth did things get to the point that our own "public servants," the mayors of these cities, are willing to trash our laws in favor of protecting non-Americans against Americans?  They plan to fight Trump's intention of deporting the criminals among them. 

That includes Muslims too of course.  Trump wants to vet them before admitting them into the country though such a commonsensical policy is treated by the Left as some kind of moral outrage.  Do they just not understand the intentions of Islam, or do they want to see America destroyed?  Sometimes it's hard to tell.  Woopsie, here comes the charge of Islamophobia or xenophobia or racism to intimidate anyone who thinks this way out of thinking this way.  Hey, I realized I might as well accept that I'm Islamophobic, because I know what Islam intends and it IS something to fear if you care about America and Americans.  I'm sick of the hateful propaganda that defends our enemies and seeks to bring down the nation.

The sad thing is how totally polarized the nation is on what the election of Trump means.  The Left thinks it's scary, seeming to believe all their own propaganda.   But do they have any idea how those of us on the other side felt when Obama was elected?  THAT was at least as scary to us as Trump is to them, and in fact Obama has proved to be the nightmare we were afraid he'd be.  But the fears of the Left about Trump are simply the fruit of their warped ideology.  They are so deep in Marxist thinking they can't recognize a standard pro-America point of view, which should benefit them as well as Trump supporters.  If he isn't assassinated right out of the gate they may have a chance to discover that.  (And praying for Trump's protection has to be top priority for Christians I would think).

[I have to change an opinion I expressed here earlier that I thought Trump would have to take back some of his positions such as his support of waterboarding, but I see that he hasn't taken it back and that Pence is supporting the possibility.  (It's called torture and I'm sorry to say I got convinced of that by the movie The Railway Man because waterboarding was shown to be THE method of interrogation used by the Japanese against the British POW, who was emotionally wracked by whatever they did to him years after the end of the war;  but now I believe that was probably propaganda -- the film itself gave the caveat that the POW was tortured in many ways not presented, that the real-life POW's wife said were far worse than what was shown, methods that are more likely to be the reason for his emotional problems after the war.  So I probably fell for some typical propaganda.)   So we'll see how that discussion goes after Trump takes office.]   

What does that incident mean, the incident where the cast of a play booed VP-elect Mike Pence when he attended a performance, and Trump responded by calling it harassment and demanding an apology.  I've seen retorts from the other side that Trump is being a bully, a Hitler in fact.   Pence himself has denied being offended by the reaction. 

One thing we've liked about Trump is that he doesn't cave in when he's called politically correct names.  PC is the bully, PC intimidates and controls, PC is the reason we can't do anything about the problem of illegal aliens, it's the reason Europe is being overrun by Muslims that want to destroy them, PC is the weapon of "Critical Theory" that has the objective of bringing down Western Civilization and it's been succeeding awfully well recently.  A lot of us complain but all they have to do is scowl at us and accuse us of racism or xenophobia and we shut up..  Trump on the other hand doesn't cave, he knows how to handle bullies.

Most of the objection to Trump is PC:  he's racist or xenophobic or sexist or etc etc etc.  That's what makes him a "Hitler."  But what if it turns out that THEY are the Hitlerian brown shirts?   The parallel isn't all that apt on either side but one thing we ought to know is that huge numbers of people supported Hitler.  There are huge numbers for Trump and huge numbers that want to kill him in one way or another.  If he represents the salvation of good things then they are the Hitlers.

Could Trump turn into a Hitler?  It's said so often by the Left I suppose it has to be considered.  He has a strong determined personality that doesn't take much guff from anybody.  But that just makes him Churchillian -- we'll fight the bullies wherever they engage us.  It all depends on what the strength is defending.  Strength on the wrong side is dangerous;  on the right side it could save the country.  The Left isn't used to being called on their plots, they're used to being able to scream "racist" and have all their opponents fall down in a heap.  Cuz THEY are the bullies.

Even so, an autocratic spirit COULD end up doing things of a Hitlerian sort.  There's always that danger.  But Trump is being watched closely by people even on his own side, to see if he's going to come through on his promises or let us down as politicians always do.  And nobody is treating him like a demigod the way Obama was treated.  At the time I posted some of the outright worship of Obama, the complete lack of a critical stance toward him on the part of his supporters.  THAT is far more worrisome I would think than the hopeful but cautious attitude toward Trump among his supporters.  Hitler was also worshipped.  There is none of that with Trump.

Found this at Breitbart:  WHAT TRUMP MEANS.  Among other things the author says:
Trump means an American government that will serve the people, and be rooted in common sense.
I think that says what most Trump supporters feel about Trump.  It's the Left that doesn't get it.  They've been deluding themselves for so long with a false agenda they've come to believe it's real, and they can't stop seeing everything through their distorting lens.  Cultural Marxism, Critical Theory, Political Correctness, have so come to rule their thinking they'll need massive deprogramming to relearn how to recognize reality. 

Serving the people.  Golly what a concept.  Did Obama serve the people?  Obviously not, he's been serving an agenda of his own, aimed at the destruction of America.  Far from serving the American people he's been serving any and all elements that are against us.  Destroying us by encouraging illegal invasions by foreigners who are either parasites on our economy or criminally dangerous or ideologically committed to our destruction, such as Islam;  destroying America's reputation with other nations by apologizing for us to our enemies;  destroying our sovereignty by supporting globalism which would put us under rule by those same enemies;  destroying the economy by supporting foreign economies against ours.  Isn't it interesting that some American businesses are thinking of bringing their manufacturing jobs back to America just because Trump has been elected? 

Marxism is a philosophy of envy and hatred of anybody who has more than others because of a better work ethic.  Envy is another word for covetousness, one of the Shalt Nots, the tenth of the Ten Commandments.  Stealing is another Shalt Not, but Marxism promotes stealing:  from the hard working successful people to the poor.  That's not charity, that's stealing.  It also promotes lying propaganda, that's one of the Shalt Nots too.  They lied to themselves so hard in this election they brought defeat on themselves.  Cultural Marxism also promoted Sexual Freedom of every kind, the Shalt Not against adultery which includes every kind of sexual sin, which undermines the society in many ways.  Organized Marxist nations of course also commit murder as a necessary means to bringing about their crazed idea of utopia.  Murder in the multiple millions.  Doesn't that about run the gamut of the Shalt Nots?  No wonder they have to get rid of the Ten Commandments that have always been the foundation of our court systems.  No wonder they want to erect a statue of Satan.

Well, that last paragraph may be a bit off topic, it just sort of poured out of me.  I think I'll leave it.

And I think I'll end this rather rambling post with the usual reminder that none of this could have happened if the true Christian Church had not enabled it with false doctrine and silly worldly preoccupations in the place of the gospel of Christ.  Trump seems right now to be God's mercy on us even in the teeth of His judgment against us.  But politics can't save us if we continue to ignore and dishonor God.  Repentance and prayer from the churches is the only way out of the evil morass we've been sinking into for decades.

Some evidence of election tampering, vote fraud, and provocation at Trump rallies

Here is some evidence of tampering with the election before the election occurred:

Infowars interview of Beverly Harris, October 31, 2016:  She explains the technology of mass voter election fraud by manipulating the results from a centralized computer;  says later in the interview that it appears things are already rigged for Hillary.  She's not partisan herself and she's very credible.


This is her website, Blackboxvoting.org:  Lots of information explaining the method of manipulating votes by assigning a fraction to each vote instead of a whole number, which makes it easier to manipulate the percentages of a great number of votes for any given candidate.

And here is the first of a series of videos made secretly, getting people on the Hillary side to talk about how they are rigging the election among other things.  There are at least four in the series available at YouTube.  This first one is mostly about how they send people to disrupt Trump rallies.

Trust not in horses and chariots but put all trust in God and PRAY

Far as I can see, the Leftists ARE the Fascists.  They are the ones who want to force their views on everybody else, force us to toe their line, who lie and manipulate and create propaganda to put blame on their opponents.  All the signs right now are that it's the Left that is making up the stories about Trump supporters committing racial violence.  There isn't any violence from the Trump side, it's all fabricated by the Left, all "false flag" lies.  I asked for proof in the last post but there is no proof.  The proof, the video evidence, shows Leftists attacking Trump supporters and whites.  I'm not saying some Trump supporters couldn't do such things but the evidence is not there, the evidence says it's the Left that is doing it all. 

The election was rigged by the Democrats too.  Why is this information confined to the alternative media?

The protestors are also brought in on buses, paid by Leftists such as billionaire Soros.  I don't know why more isn't made of this fact too.  There are pictures of the buses but there needs to be more.  Shouldn't we be peppering the MSM with this information and evidence?  Otherwise they just stay in their isolated Leftist-defined caves.

And now there are people on Trump's side warning about more false flag events such as some Leftist nut shooting into a crowd of protestors and blaming it on the Right.  They are openly calling for the murder of Trump and the rape of Melania.  What a bunch of disgusting barbarians.  This sort of thing is NOT AMERICAN, this IS the sort of thing the Communists, Marxists, Fascists, do.  Sheer evil. 

I suppose half the country has no clue about any of this.  They are buying the lying propaganda, believing it's the people on Trump's side who are doing such things because that's what the MSM is telling them.  You have to pay attention to the alternative media to get the truth.  Drudge Report, Breitbart, Infowars. 

SO.  There isn't much mere human beings can do against such things.  We have to trust God to keep such evil plans from succeeding.  Pray for the exposure of the lies, for the truth to reach people who are right now deceived by the lies, pray for protection of those targeted by the manipulators, pray that sanity will prevail, but pray pray pray.

You can't just say it, you have to prove it.

PLEASE:  PROVE IT, one way or another, prove it.  The mainstream media and their talking heads say things like how Hillary won the popular vote by such and such a number.  The alternative conservative media says the DEMOCRATS STOLE THE ELECTION IN FIVE STATES.  Examples of this were reported during the election while it was happening.  If you compare the numbers it could be that Hillary did NOT have the popular vote. 

There shouldn't be some people who know this and some who don't. 

The mainstream is also reporting that there is violence by Trump supporters against Hillary supporters.  I've seen lots of video that shows it is the other way around and seen NO video that supports it.  Newt Gingrich said the viole3nce by Trump voters is completely fabricated.  This is a matter of FACT.  There shouldn't be different opinions on such an issue.  IT NEEDS TO BE PROVED ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

Propaganda is a known tool of Marxists and Communists.  Lying is their forte and a favorite method for getting their way.  They don't mind misleading the whole nation if it serves their selfish ends.  And I'm sure there are some among the conservatives who aren't above such things either, but it's practically the definition of the Left.

WE NEED EVIDENCE.  WE NEED PROOF ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

And I'm tired of hearing how Trump's concern with national security is racism or xenophobia.  NO, IT IS A CONCERN WITH NATIONAL SECURITY.  Turning that into racism is Leftist politically correct propaganda-generated paranoia.  It's unfortunate that there are racist groups that support Trump, and he should repudiate them to be absolutely clear, but he isn't responsible for their supporting him.   Is Trump a misogynist?  In spite of his crude talk at times I don't think so.  Stop using such epithets.

America has never been perfect but I don't remember ever before seeing anything like the degree of manipulation and self-serving lies we've been seeing by the Left over the last few decades.

OK, so what IS love of neighbor? It begins with the Ten Commandments

What does it mean to "love your neighbor?"  This is the second of the two great commandments as Jesus preached them, the first being to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.  What is that but the first of the Ten Commandments? 

I've seen this teaching of Jesus about the two great commandments distorted by "liberal" Christians, who don't understand that He uses them to stand inclusively for all the Ten Commandments, all the "Law and the Prophets."  They also distort the passage to make it mean that He is commanding us to love ourselves, although the passage actually says that we are to love our neighbor AS ourselves.  Loving ourselves is taken for granted;  the commandment is to love others in the same way as we love ourselves.*

The true understanding of the two great commandments is that the first, loving God, is contained in the First Table of the Law or the first three commandments of the Ten Commandments:  loving God means first loving Him with all our faculties, then it means having no other gods before Him, understood as worshiping ANYTHING above Him, not just literal gods;  making no graven images to bow down to them and so on.  I used to think the tables were divided equally, five and five, but it's only the first three that are about how we are to relate to God.  

Then Jesus says the second commandment is "like unto the first," to love your neighbor as yourself.  The first great commandment includes all the First Table of the Law that defines what loving God means;  the second includes all the Second Table of the Law that defines what loving neighbor means.  So, what does it mean?  Well, it starts with the fourth commandment to honor the Sabbath, and the fifth to honor parents -- which includes all legitimate authority, then it goes on through the five Shalt Nots:   Thou shalt not murder, steal, lie, commit adultery or covet your neighbor's possessions.  THAT's what loving your neighbor means.  Doing no harm to your neighbor IS loving your neighbor.  There are of course positive expressions of loving your neighbor spelled out in the Old Testament  discussions of the Law and in Jesus' teachings, but the Ten Commandments is the foundation of them all.  And the two great Commandments, love of God and love of neighbor, are condensations of them all.

Liberal Christians may prefer to substitute some mush-headed idea of love they make up themselves for the second great commandment, and ignore all the Shalt-Nots which are HOW we love our neighbors.  This ends up being hating your neighbor in reality.

So think of the people out there trashing things and beating people up because they lost the election.  Some of them carry signs saying Trump supporters are haters.  Really?  Jesus also preached in the Sermon on the Mount that hatred in the heart is really murder, and there is a lot of hatred among the protestors, frothing-at-the-mouth hatred because they didn't get their way.  Destroying people's property and beating them up is certainly not loving your neighbor. 

But of course the protestors are on the side that has thrown out the Ten Commandments that would have told them what love is. 

This is no doubt a case of where "Judgement begins at the house of God" since the churches that distort the Ten Commandments, like those that violate God's laws by allowing women preachers and elders, like churches that don't require women to cover our heads in the assembly, like churches that treat homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle rather than a sin, that even ordain them to the leadership,  churches that call good evil and evil good, are the starting point of God's judgment that has been coming down on the whole nation, now expressed in these selfish hateful barbarian protests.

So these protests against a legitimate election are fruit of the Church's failure to obey God.  That's where it starts.  That's where we have to start to undo it.  By repentance and prayer.  God has had mercy on us in this election by saving us from the worst of the anti-Christ anti-American options and giving us somebody who might be able to begin to turn the tide back from evil to good.   But this can't be done without looking to God at every turn.  Trump says he's a Christian.  Then let him live it by starting every day with prayer that God will guide his decisions.

==============================================
*The reason for changing the wording to mean that it also commands us to love ourselves, is that we supposedly suffer from self-hate.  While in some sense this is a practical reality, people DO get depressed and want to do away with themselves, which is self-hating, in the Biblical sense it isn't:  self-hate in the Biblical sense is a form of self-love or of pride:  we "hate" ourselves because we aren't as perfect as we think we should be.  Our pride is wounded by seeing our flaws, our guilt, our sins.  If we weren't self-loving we wouldn't have such a feeling as self-hate at all.  The cure for "self-hate" then is accepting that we are flawed, being able to testify to our sinfulness and foolishness and wrongness without feeling hurt by it.  Not easy of course, but it is the Christian ideal.

The Hateful Face of Political Correctness

So you've probably seen the sign that says "Love Trumps Hate" with a screaming face behind it.  We know what they think they mean, of course, but all they are doing is showing their own hatred, and their anti-Americanism.  Let's be clear, the Leftists are the haters, the ones who run into the streets to harm and kill those they hate, to destroy their property, to act like barbarians and fascists because of nothing more than hurt feelings.  Truth be told, even a nonviolent protest of the results of a legitimate election (even one their side did try to steal) is a deep offense to this nation.  Bleagh, these aren't Americans.  When Hillary said in her "concession" speech, that was really more of a bitter call to her troops, that she "loves America" and hates to give up her American "values" all I could do was roll my eyes.  She has no AMERICAN values, she doesn't love the true America, she loves some imaginary Marxist redefinition of America, an ugly alien parody.  She, and Obama too as I recall, emphasized the very American tradition of the peaceful transition of power between administrations, but hypocritically neither of them has come out and condemned the violent protests. 

I guess I'm a bit irritable this evening.  Anyway, WHAT "love" is that sign talking about?  What love is there in defying the law?  What love is there in allowing illegal immigrants to keep coming into the country and threaten the jobs of citizens?:  Or their lives if we're talking about Islamists?  Or get benefits and medical care paid for by these American citizens?   Do you love the Christians who are being sued out of their businesses because they can't in good conscience support gay marriage?  No, you hate them.  YOU'RE the haters.  Do you love the 60 million voters who legitimately won this election?  Obviously not, you hate us all, you still want to steal it from us.

You wave the Mexican flag and claim to be Americans?  Hey, Mexico could use some help, a lot of help obviously since so many of them want to move here.  How's about THAT's where you move to get away from the Trump administration?  Help the poor people down there to better their lot instead of tearing down America.  You are so loving, stop the hatred and show it!

===============

Now the Lefties are projecting their own violence on the Right and believing fabricated stories.

So now we're getting lies about who is perpetrating the violence.  The evidence is out there in plenty of video reports that it's anti-Trumpers who are protesting and anti-Trumpers trashing things, attacking the police and lone Trump supporters;  but without any evidence at all there are some claiming there are pro-Trump people doing these things.  Such as at EvC forum, which is supposedly about the evolution-creation debates but interestingly is almost solidly Leftist.  We could wonder why that is the case, but anyway that's where one of the leftist scientists has made this false accusation of Trump supporters. 

The Left accuses us falsely of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, fascism, being "haters" and now violence, most of which describe the Left and not the Right.  I'm sure there are some on both sides that fit all those labels, but it's the Left as a whole that is actually characterized by most of them and not the Right. 

That poster should apologize.  I won't hold my breath. 

I found this report on similar false accusations -- it's a right-wing source so he'll ignore it despite its evident credibility. 

Later: There's more to that post I should have commented on:
We are already seeing violence and threatened violence against minorities around the country. In schools bullies and the children of bigots feel empowered to terrorize anyone they don't like.

This is exactly the kind of behavior that enabled the nazi rise to power. A few assassinations of the press by the "2nd amendment folks" as Trump calls them and the press will stop reporting on the abuses of power.
What a bunch of paranoid hate speech. They usually accuse the Right of such paranoia. Just as the violence and threatened violence he's attributing to the Right is actually being perpetrated by the Left as we speak.  It's the Leftist desire to shut up people who disagree with them that is the Nazi style terrorism that is ACTUALLY occurring.  Trump supporters are the ones getting beaten up.  The press isn't reporting on Rightist abuses of power because the abuse is being done by the Left, and most of it is reported on the non-mainstream media.  Infowars had a team out covering the Austin protest for instance.  It wasn't violent -- oh, except that one marcher did kick one of the Infowars guys who was interviewing people.  

===========================
Geraldo Rivera being interviewed at Fox News made the point that the violent protests are trashing businesses in cities that went for Hillary, very likely businesses that belong to her supporters.  He said they should be put in jail.  They should.  Is that going to happen?

Somebody at Fox, it might have been Geraldo on the same show, said there has been at least one incident of white supremacist craziness at a school, of labeling fountains separately for blacks and whites.  It doesn't sound like it was violent, just crazy.  So there are your racists.   

Have we already degenerated to a third world nation ruled by violence?

I'm  waiting for someone on the Left to denounce the protests.  Hillary?  Obama?  Anybody?  There have been incidents of whites being singled out and beaten for their support of Trump, a gang against a lone victim.  It's become dangerous in America to cast a vote for the candidate of your choice?  This is America? 

A large percentage of blacks and Hispanics also voted for Trump, but the propaganda -- RACIST propaganda by the way -- is aimed at whites.  A high school girl was attacked by a fellow student, a girl, race unknown, at least to me, for giving her opinion in favor of Trump on social media.  The assailant asked her if she hates Mexicans;  she said No;  the assailant then said You're for Trump, you hate Mexicans and hit her.  This is the insane logic that has been pumped into people's heads on the Left.  It's "hate speech" isn't it? 

Shouldn't those whose lying rhetoric has provoked this violence be prosecuted for it?

Post-election blues: Wrongheaded protests, and Will Trump renege on some of his promises?

How sad all these protests are.  Protesting the legitimately elected views of the other half of the population as if they have the right to take away our genuine victory.  Trump won despite some rigging of the election in some locations, too, which was reported on Infowars as it occurred.  It probably only accounted for tens of thousands in the end, maybe hundreds, perhaps thanks to the vigilance of those who were expecting it to occur and watching for it.  This was a genuine fair election of Trump.  The protestors are expressing an anti-American denial of free speech to their opponents, which fits with the fact that their numbers include open Communists.

What's sad is the brainwashing the Hillary supporters are laboring under.  The protestors are mostly kids.  They certainly didn't get their notions from years of experience and deep study;  they had to get it from propaganda in the universities.  They have no sense of history at all, they swallow whatever they've heard in the lecture hall, basically the whole Politically Correct pack of lies:  Trump is a racist, a xenophobe and so on . They fear a loss of rights that has been trumped up out of nothing.  Trump was actually supported by an LGBT group but they believe LGBT's are going to be threatened while walking down the street.  Where are they getting these lies?  (If anybody should worry because of Trump's views of LGBT, it could be us Christians, because it doesn't look to me like he's going to do anything to protect us against the gay marriage law that threatens to destroy Christian businesses.)

They buy the lie that preventing illegal immigration is about racism rather than a rational assessment of security risks, even overlooking that for starters illegality is illegality.  They buy the lie that a need to carefully check the background of Muslims who want to come into the country is racism.    Do they even know that there are millions of Christians among the Syrian refugees that we could accept because we know there is no danger from admitting them, but that we are being politically manipulated to accept only Muslims instead?  There is no racial issue here;  there is only reasonable concern for the nation's security.  But of course they don't know that because the propaganda is aimed at destroying America, there is no rational basis for any of it.

We need a massive education program in this country to counter the brainwashing in the universities.  ALL of us need it.  I've learned enough over the last decade or so to realize that I still need to know a lot more than I do. 

But besides all that I'm also now wondering and even worrying if Trump will remain the purist he seemed to be during the primaries.  Is he going to compromise now?  Is he going to accept RINOs into his administration?   I've heard some of Ron Paul's comments on the election and he warns about such eventualities.  He mentioned how Reagan didn't keep his promise to cut spending for instance, but that in fact spending increased in his administration even beyond the excesses of the Democrats.

But it was God who gave us the victory so far and it's God we have to keep appealing to if we want to ensure its continuing benefits.  In the Name of Jesus Christ.

O Happy Day!

Thank You, Lord, for saving the nation from a Hillary Presidency and giving us a man who knows the difference between good and evil, whose heart is in the right place, who loves this country.  Keep us praying, though, because the forces of evil aren't going away.  Now more than ever we need God's protection.

IINFOWARS.COM a great place to listen to Election Day coverage.

Of course I'm a total right-wing idiot, nut, whatever, and as such I recommend for coverage of this biggest day in a long long time and maybe ever, Alex Jones' "Emergency Election Historic 52 Hour Live Election 2016 Coverage -- go to Infowars.com/show.  So far a lot of good total right-wing idiot/nut commentary.  The best.

Politically Correct RINO in the NYT attacks the Trump candidacy and his supporters.

I saw this post at EvC this morning quoting from an opinion piece in the NYT, Is There Life After Trump? about the terrible condition of the Republican Party as embodied in the Trump candidacy, and feel I must try to answer it.  The author was misidentified in the post as Paul Krugman, though in reality he's Peter Wehner*, a self-identified Republican who thinks
The 2016 presidential campaign has revealed dark and disturbing things about not only Donald J. Trump but also the party that nominated him.
and
The forces that propelled Mr. Trump’s rise need to be confronted and defeated. It won’t be easy, given that tens of millions of Americans will vote for him and believe deeply in him. But if these forces are not defeated, what happened this year will be replicated in one form or another, and the Republican Party will continue to inflict great harm on our republic.
And what are those forces?  He lists three, the first being  "anti-intellectualism," which he sees as embodied in the party's embrace of Sarah Palin; then "political recklessness," or "unceasing combativeness, intemperance and a deep hostility toward compromise and temperamental moderation," exemplified by the government shutdown of a few years ago, and by the belief that Barack Obama was not born in America, which he calls a"crazed, racist, conspiracy theory."  .  And the third is "appealing to nativism and xenophobia" which is how he characterizes Trump's presentation of the problem of illegal immigration"-- "Demonizing people of other races, cultures and faiths..."
Republicans need to wrestle with more fundamental questions first: Will their party choose as its leaders people who respect democratic institutions and traditions, or not; who conceive of America as a welcoming society or as one that is racially and religiously closed; who are committed to helping or exploiting the weak and vulnerable; who admire or oppose tyrants; who respect truth or view it in purely utilitarian ways; who abhor ignorance or embrace it? Will Republicans gravitate toward leaders who have authoritarian tendencies, who incite violence in their followers, and whose personalities are vindictive, cruel and disordered?
By the time I got through the piece my head was swimming with the familiar terms of Political Correctness.  What does "respect democratic institutions and traditions" mean?  Unfortunately it is likely to be a euphemism for PC business as usual.  What does being a "welcoming society" mean?  Obviously in this context it means allowing America to be overrun by people who include some who would like to destroy us.  Authoritarian?  Violence?  Vindictive, cruel and disordered?  Wow what a litany of PC accusations.  If there's one thing a Republican should not be, it's Politically Correct.  A Republican should be a critic of Political Correctness.  But instead this writer indicts Trump and his followers for all the bogus attitudes invented by Cultural Marxism to discredit anyone who has a traditional view of America.  How is this man a Republican?  He slings around the terminology of he Leftist/ Marxist hatred of traditional America:  Racist, xenophobic, authoritarian. 

His attitudes are exactly "the forces that propelled Trump to his candidacy" and if only he recognized this I'd agree that these forces do indeed need to be "confronted and defeated."  The forces HE identifies are most likely best explained as the effects of the leftist manipulations and propaganda that have left conservative Republicans without a meaningful voice.  Trump for better or worse is our answer to the Leftist forces that have sought for decades to destroy traditional America and largely succeeded.  This RINO seems to be blind to all that, to the crying need for such a voice, flawed though the package be in which it has come to us. 

Trump's crudeness makes me cringe.  It's even led me to consider not voting for him.  But when I read a piece like this I know why it is important to defend him.  He's the ONLY one, among what at first looked like a pretty good array of conservative Republicans running for the Presidency, who spoke our own thoughts about what America is supposed to be and spoke against the political correctness that has been killing us for decades.  The others waffled and compromised where Trump told it like it is.  His personality is far from what we'd like to see in the Presidency, but his political views are exactly what we, at least half of the population, have been hoping for increasingly over all those decades.  I'd pretty much given up, accepting that we are on the downward spiral to the transformation by corruption and subterfuge and propaganda into a Marxist entity that can fit right in to the global vision being engineered behind the scenes, and then Trump came along echoing our own very thoughts, an amazing reversal to the downward trend.  And "Republicans" want to shut him up. 

This RINO even accuses the Trump faction of "violence."  WHAT violence?  Does he mean the leftist plants that have infiltrated Trump rallies and provoked retaliation?  And birtherism.  I have not seen evidence that proves it wrong, but there's plenty that supports the view that Obama was born in Kenya.  All I've seen against the idea is the kind of ridicule this writer heaps on it, along with some highly questionable bits of supposed evidence, but not real evidence. Obama was a "foreign student" in America when the mailman talked to him about how he was going to become President of the US some day.  Has that been discredited?  Not that I know of.  Have his Kenyan grandmother's words about seeing him when he was born there been discredited?  Not that I know of.  We've all just capitulated to the nasty accusations of "conspiracy theory" and "crazed racism" and shut up about it, we haven't abandoned the idea because it has never been truly shown to be wrong.  NOT because we're "crazed racists" but because IT HASN'T BEEN TRULY SHOWN TO BE WRONG.

 What are the forces that propelled Trump to his current position?  LEFTIST MARXIST PROPAGANDA AGAINST AMERICA.  Leftist Marxist accusations of racism and the like against anybody who wants to protect America against cultural influences that would permanently change its character.  Europe has been just about brought to its knees by political correctness that allows the barbarian Muslim "refugees" to rape its women and wreak destruction of its once-civilized societies, which eventually will make Europe just as barbarian and Muslim as the countries they came from.  Oh but this is just racism and xenophobia, isn't it? 

Again, a Christian ought to know why, and it's because they abandoned the God that made them civilized in the first place;  and that's the case in America too.  If we get Hillary that will be the reason why. 

Trump doesn't have the personality we'd like to see in the role of savior of the nation, but he has the vision of America we want to prevail.  I for one have to vote for that vision, and pray that strong advisers will rise to keep him on track.

===================
*I looked up Peter Wehner and find him described as a solid conservative and Christian, which makes his denunciations of Republicans who support Trump especially puzzling.  How can he be so blind to the actual reasons for Trump's popularity, I mean the LEGITIMATE IMPORTANT reasons?  How can he lob so many PC accusations against him and his followers?  He sounds like a leftist in this article no matter what his credentials and associations that should suggest otherwise. 
===================

I have one more comment I want to make on an opinion I saw at EvC today about how Christians who are supporting Trump have no genuinely Christian reasons for doing so.
When you look at some of their core beliefs:
- Being anti-tax
- Being pro death penalty
- Being pro-war
- Being anti-gay
- Being pro-gun
How precisely are these Christian values in any way? The answer is they are not. Most of these knuckle-draggers don't even understand their own bible or have read it. They are just Pavlovian dogs salivating when someone says something they like. The 'ditto-heads' that make up Rush Limbaugh's audience is a great example.
The death penalty for murder is prescribed in the Bible, by God as He instructed Noah.
"Anti-gay" is a propaganda term.  The Bible defines homosexuality as sin along with all kinds of other sins, and it's same-sex marriage we particularly oppose because the Bible prescribes marriage only for a man and a woman.  These are definitely Christian concerns.

I don't know what the "anti-tax" accusation refers to.  Christians aren't anti-tax that I know of -- anti-EXCESSIVE tax perhaps, or anti taxes that are just stealing from some to give to others.  And I don't know what "pro-war" is supposed to hint at, but as for being "pro gun," Christian conservatives are strong defenders of the Second Amendment which isn't a specifically Christian concern but isn't a violation either.  I think it was Chris Pinto who recently pointed out that it was when the UK took away the people's guns back in the 90s that  Muslim gangs almost immediately started terrorizing the nation.  Oh, you didn't know that?

Praying for the nation and this election

God could give us Hillary because the nation is under judgment.  The only answer to judgment is confession and repentance.  Praying for revival is always good but not without confession and repentance.  I'd like to see a Christian leader make a call for this kind of prayer, similar to Kay Arthur's call for revival prayer a few years ago.  But although she had people praying across the nation revival didn't come.  There has to be a spirit of confession and repentance and then maybe God will give us revival.   We have to confess the errors as God shows them to us in our own churches but also the errors of the liberal churches, the "social justice" churches, the self-esteem "seeker-sensitive" churches, the Emergent Church, the seventh-day Adventists, and any other errors we can think of.   And we could use some powerful evangelists like George Whitefield. 

Even if a few prayed like this it could make a difference.  The prophet Daniel after all prayed on his own and confessed all the sins of Israel as his own.  Fasting to various degrees would help too.

Anyway I'm taking this as my own project for the next few days.

Confession and Repentance is the Beginning of Saving America, as well as ourselves personally

I've many times on this blog said that America is under God's judgment and that the only cure for that is recognizing our sins as a nation, confessing them and repenting of them and returning to the gospel of Christ.  As I think about this election I realize how desperately we need such a national change of heart.  It should start at the churches of course, since "judgment begins at the house of God" and there are plenty of compromised churches in this land now: churches that hardly preach the gospel at all but seek to make people "feel good about themselves," and churches that deny the God-inspired nature of scripture, churches that support the Marxist concept of "social justice" in a distortion of Christian teaching about mercy and fairness, confusing and corrupting the gospel itself.   It feels hopeless.  Many many Christians, God help us, who are voting for Hillary in this election.

Then I think of Europe which has far less of its Christian heritage remaining intact, that is becoming overrun with alien immigrants and alien ideas and subjected to violence aimed at destroying whatever is left of its western culture, including the rape of its young women by Muslim men.  Its leaders won't do anything about this because they are brainwashed by political correctness, afraid of being called "racist," committed to the dissolution of national entities into a global unity that is only going to be a worse nightmare.  Europe seems to be in a state of terminal denial that will eventually obliterate it and replace it with something murderous, violent, barbaric, evil, the very paganisms, only perhaps worse, that Christianity originally overthrew as it took hold in pagan Europe.   

America has to repent of our rejection of God but Europe even more so.  America at least has enough of a remnant of Christians to allow us to entertain such a possibility as repentance and return to God.  It feels hopeless for sure but if God would enable us to recover our former favor with Him, then we could pray for Europe with more effect.

Lately I've been feeling pressed to confess my own sins in this effort.  I've confessed them to God and even to some friends, but I keep feeling pressed to confess them in a more public way.  This sense of pressure in this direction has occurred off and on over many years, but when I pray about it or consult Christians about it I am usually advised that if I've repented then there is no need to confess further.  I also found Spurgeon advising that some sins should simply not be confessed publicly.  This plus my natural fleshly fear of being despised for the sins has driven me back into silence over and over. 

As for being despised, it couldn't get much worse anyway.  I've been aware for years that I'm under God's judgment for something in my past, or call it "chastisement" if you prefer, since that is something Christians are to expect from God;  also that my sins are already public knowledge anyway although kept secret from me.  People spit outside my door fairly frequently for instance.  But nobody believes me if I tell them this.  If they don't actually spit they cough or clear their throats as if they are going to.  This occurs whenever I go out in public too, the grocery store even.  I'm told I'm just being paranoid, that these things aren't happening or I'm misconstruing them at least.  I know otherwise but I'm alone with my experience.  It's been pretty blatant at times too, but I don't want this to become a record of all the instances or I'd never get to the end of it.  Sometimes it's threatening, sometimes people frown or scowl, sometimes they laugh.  Knowing that God is in charge of everything I figure He's chastizing me and that I am to yield to it and not fight it.  I'm even to pray for my enemies of course, and stop reacting defensively.  I seem to fail at whatever it is He wants of me because it continues to go on and I continue to merely feel beaten down by it instead of learning whatever it is I'm to learn.  And yet when I feel perhaps I need to make a public confession I don't get a clear answer to this and sometimes the discouragement I mention above.

Would it set me free to confess?  I don't know.   I still don't know if confession is what is called for.  Would I find mercy?  Scripture says if you hide your sins you will not prosper but if you confess and abandon them you will find mercy.  But I think, I have confessed them haven't I? Well, perhaps not enough, perhaps not fully, perhaps I'm still not completely rid of them. 

It's all or mostly sexual sins.  Most go back before I became a believer, but at least one was committed since, about ten years ago.  I'm not entirely sure which of my sins is public, whether they are true or distorted.  In any case those that haunt me most are sexual sins.

The big one goes back to 1983 when I had left my "husband," which I put in quotes because we never legally married, was super depressed and wrote an ad for a sex partner, really a sort of sex therapist you could say.  I wanted someone who would care about what I got out of it because my experience during many years of promiscuity was that sex partners never did, and I felt used.  I was forty-one and after leaving my husband had encountered the bad boy of the Berkeley social scene who went around seducing women of all ages and I fell for it.  He was twenty six and although it was the usual frustrating and depressing experience despite much excitement, at least I had the impression he cared more about it than others.  Why I felt that I don't know, but I got the idea into my head that because he was younger he had a different view of women's sexuality than older men.  So my ad asked for a younger man and very clinically described a regular intermittent encounter without emotional ties.  That's either what I thought I wanted or all I thought I could dare to ask for.  I also described myself as "very attractive" which was a huge mistake.  I thought of myself as attractive enough but far from the "very" I appended to the term, out of bravado?  I don't know but it was stupid.  I also said I was married, which I wasn't, and to the extent I was married in any practical sense, I'd left it anyway.  I guess the idea was to emphasize that I wasn't asking for any kind of emotional entanglement.  I got a bunch of answers, some REALLY young guys among them, age eighteen or so, which I wasn't interested in because then I'd be the teacher.  What I wanted WAS more of a therapist, somebody who would rescue me from that recent seduction and abandonment.  I met a few but nothing felt right.  I dropped the whole thing.

I know this is the cause of some of the spitting and other ways I've been treated like a pariah since then.  Somebody I'd written to among those who answered the ad, to whom I foolishly told a lot more of my intentions than I should have, somehow has made the foolishness I wrote available to people around me ever since.  Yes I know it sounds like it has to be my imagination but I know it isn't.  But I'm not interested in convincing anyone at this point, the sin itself is what I'm trying to confess here.  Oh, it must have a lot to do with the fact that in those years I was working with my psychologist husband as a "sex therapist," which was more couples therapy in reality, one of a team talking to couoples who came in with a sex problem, and I worked with my husband as well as some of his students in psychology at the University.  And I'll add that this role was not something I'd been trained for except by him, and he put me into the role, trained me, monitored me etc.  Meaning I was illegal, although I took pains to make sure every client knew my actual status, and nobody objected.  But I suppose that a reason why I was targeted as I was had to do with being a sex therapist, meaning that writing such an ad would invite particular condemnation. 

Of course the ultimate reason was that God wanted me in this position.  What I'm hoping is that if I confess all of it I can finally know I'm forgiven and belong to Christ and that He would bless what I've been writing in my blogs.  He has certainly led me through much of it anyway, answered many prayers for understanding of what He wants  me to write.  I don't know if confessing will make any difference at all, but I'm hoping it will lift the burden I've been under and make me a more effective blogger.  I also hope that by doing what I keep saying we all need to do in order to turn the country back it will have some effect on others to the same end.  If I haven't sinned away my favor with God.  I've never even known for sure if I'm saved.  If I'm not there's nothing to lose.  If I am I'd assume my sense of assurance has been compromised by my failure to confess and might finally have that assurance if I do. 

That first debacle thirty three years ago occurred before I was a Christian.  It was during the next few years that I read my way to belief in Christ.  Oh I guess I need to talk about that too, because what led me to seeking God was a strange relationship with a young man I eventually figured out had been "loaned" to me by his girlfriend as a result of knowing about my ad.  He was into a particular Hindu guru and kept telling me how he found God that way, even telling me that "God" was looking for me.  Turns out He was, but not the same God..  But although he was in his thirties he was far from what I wanted.   There was no real attraction and I didn't want the role of being the initiator so nothing much happened except that I felt terrifically ashamed of myself.  He also stole some American Express checks he'd found somewhere and talked me into forging the signature on them.  Something I was good at and absurdly proud of, which was a lot of the reason I complied.  After I became a Christian I wrote to Am Ex explaining the situation and sent them the money he'd stolen as a result of my forgery.  

Anyway, it was his constant talking about "God" as he knew God through his guru and his own experiences in meditation that finally got me to read up on God according to the gurus.  I hardly remember what they said but at least a couple of them agreed on what the experience of God was like in such a way that I suddenly believed.  Believed, that is, in the reality of God, but most of what I believed came out of my childhood experience of church and had little to do with the Hindu conception of God, except that I'd come to believe that all religions believe in the same God.  It took the next few years of reading to see how wrong that is.  During that time I also got involved in some occultic practices, learned astrology, how to cast charts, and spent an inordinate amount of time in a sort of conversation with the oracle "The I Ching."  I guess something like Hillary's conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt.  All that had to go when I finally understood the gospel.

So I'm trying to get all the sins I can remember into this.  But the next big debacle came about ten years ago when I was posting a lot on an internet forum and another participant, a married man, took an inordinate interest in me, liked my writing, at one point asked me if I as a Christian would ever consider marrying someone like him who was not a believer, which was a pretty seductive thing to say.   I said no, of course not, but he certainly had my interest.  I was the one, however, who tried to turn it into a relationship, not he, by persuading him into an email exchange.  I didn't think in terms of actually meeting him, let alone making it into a real relationship, I was just infatuated with his infatuation with me and found that being told he loved me was the most powerful aphrodisiac I'd ever experienced.  That experience alone was what kept me in the email exchange.  Eventually I figured out that he himself wasn't really a sexual person somehow, wasn't having any kind of sexual attraction, was more of a romantic who liked the way I write and liked the idea of being "in love," whereas I was addicted to the powerful aphrodisiac effect and although I took that as being in love myself, I knew we wouldn't like each other in reality and never encouraged it, although he played with the idea.  He was happily enough married anyway so all it was ever going to be was a conversation.  But then I started grilling him about his apparent lack of sexual feeling and found out a lot about his insecurities that pretty much ended the romantic aura for me.  About a year after we started emailing, he killed himself, although it was understood to be a heart attack.  I found out by calling his place of work.  I'm pretty sure it wasn't a heart attack because when we first started talking he said he had been suicidal recently.  And just before he died he kept talking about "Madame Bovary" who of course killed herself as a result of the consequences of her affair.  I feel most guilty that I didn't emphasize the gospel to him but just indulged myself in the selfish feeling of being "loved."  I grieved for him. 

Lots of sin, lots to confess and repent of.   Let's name some of it:  Adultery of course, lust, covetousness, bearing false witness,  selfishness, depression, self-pity, recklessness, irresponsibility, pride, covetousness.  I'm sure the list is much longer in reality.

I believe my email was hacked during my conversations with him, and I've been punished mightily for my sinful foolishness since then, as anger at me for that "relationship" just got added to the punishments I was already experiencing for the ad since  83.  I believe my email is still being hacked, both of my email accounts.  But I'm alone, nobody believes me, I have no help to find out such things or correct them. 

But again this is God's doing.  Again I'm hoping that confessing as much of it all as I think of will bring some relief from God's displeasure, and also validate my own understanding that it is confession and repentance that will turn around God's judgment on America, give me more freedom to write along those lines.

I don't know.  Maybe I've sinned away any hope of God's favor.  Maybe nothing will happen, maybe things will go on as usual.  I'll write my blogs as usual, maybe I'll get some comments, maybe some mean ones, maybe some friendly ones.  I have no idea.

Lord, I commit this to You, that You do as You please with it.  I hope for relief but if that is not Your will I accept it.  What prompted this was the knowledge that America and Europe are under Your judgment and that if I believe confession and repentance and turning back to You would turn You in our favor then I want to be sure I've done myself what is necessary.  Please forgive me and guide me to corrections if I've failed to do this as honestly or completely as I should have.   I pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus.  Amen.

============================
A few hours later.  I prayed to know if I'd left anything out and what came to mind was much earlier sins, back to my twenties when I got involved in some "sexual freedom" groups, went to parties where people took all their clothes off and danced and then went to have sex in the "mattress room."  I only went to four or five parties and I felt pretty sleazy and ashamed afterward, but at first it seemed liberating and amazing that people would get naked in a group like that. 

And one other thing came to mind but it's been a while and I don't remember it so I'll have to come back. 

So this should cover my bizarre and ugly sins of the past.  I've long since forsaken all such things but I pray for the right attitude of repentance and remorse since after writing all this mostly all I feel is sort of stunned or numb. 

Earlier there was kind of a chorus of the throat clearing going on -- meaning four or five people, but not all together, just an unusual number, it's usually only one once in a while  -- tonight it was one right outside my door, the rest down the walkway but certainly within my hearing.  A coincidence I have to suppose, but even so, maybe writing all this will make things worse.  But again I put it in God's hands.  Again I hope to be cleansed of my past once and for all, to be rid of the burden of hiding it, to be free, and to be able to say that I've done what I think the nation needs to do to stop the deterioration that's been going on for decades.  Confess, repent, turn back to God.   Sorry to do this to nice people whose sins are far more normal and respectable than mine.

REASONS TO VOTE, AND TO VOTE FOR TRUMP

As I said in the previous post I believe I've been seriously remiss in not doing the necessary research to take a stand on this election.  I've been playing ostrich I think, and allowing the loud objections to Trump's character flaws to influence me into silence, even though I've expected I'd eventually vote for him.  Now I'm finally coming out strongly in support of him, late in the game though it is.

My impression is that the conservatives and Christians who are determined not to vote for Trump are taking this position mostly because of his personality or character and less on the issues he represents.  I think there are sometimes good reasons not to vote for either candidate in an election but I don't think this is a good reason.  If both candidates are pro-choice I'd probably have to vote for somebody else or refrain from voting, depending on other factors that would have to be extremely powerful to override this issue.  It's about the issues in other words.  Trump has said some crude and obnoxious things during this campaign, and it's taken me a while to get my perspective sorted out because of this, but the bottom line for me is that he's spoken louder and clearer in favor of issues that conservatives support than any other candidate, and that's what has to count more than anything else about him.  In fact I think I've been falling into a political correctness mentality by reacting against him for his character flaws.   

I probably have an ideal candidate in the back of my head that's not completely realized and hasn't spoken out much yet, but I think I can say a few things about him:  a person who wants to see American sovereignty strengthened against the tide of globalism, who wants to reinstate America's role as ally to the worthy, as strong helper of the weak, the America that rebuilt the cities we bombed in WWII for instance, the America that has sent food and aid where needed, rather than an America that is at the command of foreign corrupt and anti-American nations that want to steal from us to give to the poor of their choice.  Someone who is determined to oppose the leftist encouragement of illegal immigration against our laws.  Somebody who supports our Christian heritage because it is what made us great and prosperous and a good influence in the world.  Who therefore seeks to protect that heritage from aliens who would undermine or threaten it, such as jihad-minded Muslims.  My candidate would also see the nation's Christian heritage as solidly Protestant and seek to protect that as well, which would take into account that there are many conservative Catholics in the nation who share roughly the same vision, but that the Roman institution as such is contrary to the vision, and is in fact one of the strongest influences in encouraging illegal immigration of Catholics, but also others that threaten the fundamentally Protestant nature of America.  This candidate could not support gay marriage because it violates the Bible, and now that it is instituted has become an agent of persecution against Christians and needs to be restrained.  My candidate would support Israel against the Palestinians, understanding the true history of that region as a neverending Islamic manipulation against Israel, which hardly anybody but some Christians understand to be the truth.  This candidate has to understand the importance of the role of the Supreme Court in restoring America, and prepare to choose strong conservatives to fill vacancies. 

I'd like to see a massive campaign to educate Americans on our true history as well, to counter the tide of Marxism that has been undermining the nation.  The right candidate could encourage this. 

That's just a few thoughts that come to me.  Trump isn't perfect on any of these issues, particularly he needs to be educated, but he does lean in the right direction and with good advisers could make the difference he wants to make in restoring America's former greatness. 

In any case it's about the issues and not about his personality, and on the issues he's stronger in the conservative and Christian direction than any other candidate we've had in a long time.  Not to vote for him would be a big mistake in my opinion.

WHY CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR HILLARY. Clinton's Marxist background and indulgence in spiritism. Plus: See UPDATE

Well, I made up my mind to vote for Trump.  I agree with most of his positions and I agree with none of Hillary Clinton's positions, starting with Pro Choice.  Trump has waffled on that one but has said enough Pro Life to make him preferable.  Character should be important of course but if we're comparing them on character Trump actually comes off better than Hillary anyway. 

I just listened to a recent radio show of Jan Markell's Understanding the Times radio on which her guest was Eric Barger who has the website Take A Stand ministries.  The subject was two of Hillary's influences that should disqualify her absolutely from the consideration of Christians:  her Marxist background and her involvement in spiritism, specifically her "channeling of Eleanor Roosevelt."  I dabbled in the occult before I became a Christian, along with many other sins, but I've repented.  I also have lapses into sins of various kinds, including pondering the uncanny "truths" of some forms of occultic practice.  But I then repent again.  But Hillary hasn't shown any signs of repentance despite her claim to be a Christian.

And then there is her Marxist background.   Most of us have heard of her association with Saul Alinsky, but Barger shows us that she was also involved with radical Michael Lerner.  I found an article at his site that mentions her experiences with "Eleanor Roosevelt" but documents in some detail the influence of Michael Lerner.  It's odd but there are liberals who deny that either she or Obama is Marxist.  Are they ignorant, brainwashed, or pretending?  Obama was raised by a Marxist mother and had Bill Ayers as his Marxist mentor.  If Hillary is elected I think we can fairly suppose that it's due partly at least to the enormous naivete of the American population about the nature of America versus the nature of Marxism. 

Trump certainly has faults galore, but they aren't in an area that threatens the very nature of American institutions, and in fact most of his positions are consistent with the conservative view of America.  The Marxists did their work well, however, influencing the educational system bit by bit to undermine those institutions.  If Trump listens to good advisers maybe we can reclaim some of it.   If not, I'd still rather have his mistakes than hers.

Anyway, here's Eric Barger's article on Clinton's Marxism.

UPDATE:  

I've been remiss as a blogger during this election season.  The issues are really clear enough when you spend the time to think them through, avoiding the noisy but irrelevant media clamor about personalities..  

Here's an article by a pastor in Charisma magazine, not one of my favorite sources of information but the article is good:  Why many Christians are going to vote for Hillary despite her anti-Christian positions and a plea to vote for Trump instead.  Her support for late term abortion ought to curdle the blood of a Christian -- or any decent human being for that matter; her support for gay marriage which has already begun persecuting Christian businesses in this nation ought to horrify a Christian.  The political position is going to affect people in ways the candidate's character won't, and voting for Hillary's political positions is to vote for murder of babies and persecution of Christians and the continuing destruction of America by the left.
