Donald Trump and Western Civilization

Donald Trump embodies what western civilization has lost by the church laying down its watch.  A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for western civilization to stop its exponential fall into darkness and to start on an upward pathway.

What do I mean?  Here are some examples:

Borders.  The church is to embody borders, borders against the world, the flesh, and the devil.  The church has become more worldly to become more popular.  As borders in the church have decreased, national borders have decreased.  Donald Trump plans to build a wall and stop illegal immigration.

Work and capitalism.  The church has focused on grace alone, not works.  Faith without works is dead.  A society based on welfare, without work, has grown up.  The Bible says, “If a man will not work, neither shall he eat.”  Donald Trump plans to reduce national debt and bring back jobs.

Law and Order.  The church has gotten away from preaching the laws of God.  Law is not important in today’s society.  Even at high political levels, there is blatant disregard for the law.  Donald Trump is for law and order.

Christiandom.  There used to be a respect for the laws of God and the Christian ethic, which permeated society as a whole.  While a specific church was not legislated, still, the society was more gentile, more polite, more honest, more upright and more ethical as overall there were more Christians than non-Christians.  As Christiandom has waned, a society based on the thief who seeks to “steal, kill and destroy” has arisen.  Donald Trump wants to restore religious freedom.

Family.  As the family has decreased, alternative life styles have increased.   Yet God created the family as his first act after creating man.  He created woman out of man, and a marriage and family was born with the command to be fruitful and multiply. Donald Trump has an exceptional family.

Donald Trump, while not being a religious leader, is the first step back to a society at a higher level than what we are currently experiencing.  Society has degenerated.  By sealing borders, bringing back jobs instead of welfare, and focusing on law and order, this will create an environment that is sound for healthy families.  He also plans on restoring religious freedom.  Right now, your pastor cannot freely talk politics in light of the Bible without the threat of the 501 c(3) tax deduction being revoked from the church.  This is why the pastors are silent.  It has to do with money.  If you don’t know that, you should.

It does not mean that they are not interested, but they are threatened.  We need to be honest about this lest Christians think that political passivity is something to be desired.

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.  Matthew 23:37-39 KJV

Jesus wept over Jerusalem the first time he came, because they did not recognize that he was sent to them.  I believe he would weep over the church today.

When Jesus came the first time, he went into the temple, and drove out the moneychangers.

And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;  John 2:15  KJV 

Think about the headlines if he did that in today’s world.  Think about how the media would have beaten up Jesus for not being politically correct.

In the same way, if George Washington, the first President, came back today and gave a speech in Congress, he would probably be booed out of the Chamber by the majority.  How the righteous have fallen!

The point is, there is always a man that God works through.  People of the day do not necessarily receive the man that God sends.  It is not the man, but the people who are at fault for not recognizing the signs of the time.

So again, until Jesus comes, all that can happen is that men of character, men with specific skill sets given by God, men who are willing to stand up to ridicule and persecution, all that can happen is that God send some of those men and that they be found faithful.

Donald Trump is one of those men.  Whether a person agrees with everything he has said (do you even agree with your wife or husband 100% of the time?), still, no one can deny the fact that he wants to do good for the country.  He wants to stop the flow of radical terrorists into the country.  He wants to restore this country to being a nation of laws (if Hillary can do all she has done and nothing happens, we are no longer a nation of laws; we are no longer a nation where the law is enforced equally).  He wants to appoint conservative judges who will rule according to the Constitution, not legislate from the bench.  Donald Trump stands for the Second Amendment.  He stands with and for veterans.  He stands with and for Israel.  He wants to restore religious freedom and get rid of the restrictions of the 501 c(3).

So maybe he just says it like he sees it.  What is wrong with that?  You have probably thought it, but just been afraid to say it.  You were afraid of losing your friends, job, pastorate, salary, or retirement.  Or, maybe you were afraid of losing the plums and gravy train you have received through a corrupted system led by corrupted leaders.

He is seeking the position of a leader of a nation.  He is not seeking the position of a pastor or priest or counselor.  He cannot be all things to all people.  Even Jesus cannot be all things to all people.  Some will go to heaven.  Some will go to hell.  But Donald Trump is a strong leader who has the skills, talents, negotiating ability, experience, and business acumen to lead this nation and undo the damage of politicians who have run up the debt, opened the borders, destroyed the economy,  eaten away at freedom and the Constitution, all while lining their personal pockets.

Donald Trump has done what Jesus did.  He has gotten in there and overturned tables of political correctness and incited the fury of the money interests, just as Jesus did in his day when he overturned the tables of the moneychangers.

Donald Trump is like Cyrus.  Cyrus was not a Jew, yet he was instrumental in allowing the rebuilding of the temple.  Donald Trump may not fit the denominational trappings of any particular church or denomination, yet he wants to restore religious liberty, stop radical Islam, bring back the law and Constitution, restore the Second Amendment, improve the economy which will strengthen the family by allowing fathers and mothers to provide for their children, bring down the debt, help the plight of those in the inner city who are stuck in the cycle of welfare poverty and do many other positive things.

Read through the prophets of the Old Testament.  Think about if they operated in today’s world, what would be said of them.  If you don’t want to think about the Old Testament, go to the New Testament.  What about John the Baptist?

For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.    For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.  Mark 6:17,18  KJV

In today’s world, if a John the Baptist spoke out, think about all the comments that would be made in the media if anyone said anything today like John the Baptist said back then.

We have to actually look at the words of the prophets of the Old and New Testament, see how radical they were for their day, and then see that Donald Trump is not saying anything any more radical than the prophets said back then.  He is just saying the truth.

In a world full of lies, where liars are exalted and protected, those who say the truth have an uphill battle, even against those who should be standing for them.  Remember, the religious leaders of his day were responsible for setting up Jesus to be crucified, as well as the people and Romans at large.  Jesus was persecuted by those who should have welcomed him.

Donald Trump is being persecuted and fought by those who should be welcoming him.

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.  Matthew 23:37-39 KJV

If you do not want your house left to you desolate, if you do not want this nation destroyed by Hillary Clinton and the multi-national corporations and shadowy interests who pay her to be their puppet, get behind Donald Trump, support him, and encourage those you know to support him as well.   VOTE DONALD TRUMP!!!  STAND WITH DONALD TRUMP!!!  ENCOURAGE AND EDUCATE THOSE YOU KNOW TO VOTE DONALD TRUMP!!!

Repost: Donald Trump Speech 6-28-2016

Declaring America’s Economic Independence

It is great to be here. I’d like to thank Alumisource and all the amazing workers here for hosting us.

Today, I am going to talk about how to Make America Wealthy Again.

We are thirty miles from Steel City. Pittsburgh played a central role in building our nation.

The legacy of Pennsylvania steelworkers lives in the bridges, railways and skyscrapers that make up our great American landscape.

But our workers’ loyalty was repaid with betrayal.

Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization – moving our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas.

Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy. But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.

When subsidized foreign steel is dumped into our markets, threatening our factories, the politicians do nothing.

For years, they watched on the sidelines as our jobs vanished and our communities were plunged into depression-level unemployment.

Many of these areas have still never recovered.

Our politicians took away from the people their means of making a living and supporting their families.

Skilled craftsmen and tradespeople and factory workers have seen the jobs they loved shipped thousands of miles away.

Many Pennsylvania towns once thriving and humming are now in a state despair.

This wave of globalization has wiped out our middle class.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We can turn it all around – and we can turn it around fast.

But if we’re going to deliver real change, we’re going to have to reject the campaign of fear and intimidation being pushed by powerful corporations, media elites, and political dynasties.

The people who rigged the system for their benefit will do anything – and say anything – to keep things exactly as they are.

The people who rigged the system are supporting Hillary Clinton because they know as long as she is in charge nothing will ever change.

The inner cities will remain poor.

The factories will remain closed.

The borders will remain open.

The special interests will remain firmly in control.

Hillary Clinton and her friends in global finance want to scare America into thinking small – and they want to scare the American people out of voting for a better future.

My campaign has the opposite message.

I want you to imagine how much better your life can be if we start believing in America again.

I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who’ve led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster after another.

Our friends in Britain recently voted to take back control of their economy, politics and borders.

I was on the right side of that issue – with the people – while Hillary, as always, stood with the elites, and both she and president Obama predicted that one wrong.

Now it’s time for the American people to take back their future.

That’s the choice we face. We can either give in to Hillary Clinton’s campaign of fear, or we can choose to Believe In America.

We lost our way when we stopped believing in our country.

America became the world’s dominant economy by becoming the world’s dominant producer.

The wealth this created was shared broadly, creating the biggest middle class the world had ever known.

But then America changed its policy from promoting development in America, to promoting development in other nations.

We allowed foreign countries to subsidize their goods, devalue their currencies, violate their agreements, and cheat in every way imaginable.

Trillions of our dollars and millions of our jobs flowed overseas as a result.

I have visited cities and towns across this country where a third or even half of manufacturing jobs have been wiped out in the last 20 years.

Today, we import nearly $800 billion more in goods than we export.

This is not some natural disaster. It is politician-made disaster.

It is the consequence of a leadership class that worships globalism over Americanism.

This is a direct affront to our Founding Fathers, who wanted America to be strong, independent and free.

Our Founding Fathers Understood Trade

George Washington said that “the promotion of domestic manufactur[ing] will be among the first consequences to flow from an energetic government.”

Alexander Hamilton spoke frequently of the “expediency of encouraging manufactur[ing] in the United States.” The first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, warned that: “The abandonment of the protective policy by the American government… must produce want and ruin among our people.”

Our original Constitution did not even have an income tax. Instead, it had tariffs – emphasizing taxation of foreign, not domestic, production.

Yet today, 240 years after the Revolution, we have turned things completely upside-down.

We tax and regulate and restrict our companies to death, then we allow foreign countries that cheat to export their goods to us tax-free.

As a result, we have become more dependent on foreign countries than ever before.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time to declare our economic independence once again.

That means reversing two of the worst legacies of the Clinton years.

America has lost nearly one-third of its manufacturing jobs since 1997 – even as the country has increased its population by 50 million people.

At the center of this catastrophe are two trade deals pushed by Bill and Hillary Clinton.

First, the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. Second, China’s entry into the World Trade Organization.

NAFTA was the worst trade deal in history, and China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization has enabled the greatest jobs theft in history.

It was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA in 1993, and Hillary Clinton who supported it.

It was also Bill Clinton who lobbied for China’s disastrous entry into the World Trade Organization, and Hillary Clinton who backed that terrible agreement.

Then, as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton stood by idly while China cheated on its currency, added another trillion dollars to our trade deficits, and stole hundreds of billions of dollars in our intellectual property.

The city of Pittsburgh, and the State of Pennsylvania, have lost one-third of their manufacturing jobs since the Clintons put China into the WTO.

Fifty thousand factories across America have shut their doors in that time.

Almost half of our entire manufacturing trade deficit in goods with the world is the result of trade with China.

It was also Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, who shoved us into a job-killing deal with South Korea in 2012.

As reported by the Economic Policy Institute in May, this deal doubled our trade deficit with South Korea and destroyed nearly 100,000 American jobs.

As Bernie Sanders said, Hillary Clinton “Voted for virtually every trade agreement that has cost the workers of this country millions of jobs.”

Trade reform, and the negotiation of great trade deals, is the quickest way to bring our jobs back.

To understand why trade reform creates jobs, we need to understand how all nations grow and prosper.

Massive trade deficits subtract directly from our Gross Domestic Product.

From 1947 to 2001 – a span of over five decades – our inflation-adjusted gross domestic product grew at a rate of 3.5%.

However, since 2002 – the year after we fully opened our markets to Chinese imports – that GDP growth rate has been cut almost in half.

What does this mean for Americans? For every one percent of GDP growth we fail to generate in any given year, we also fail to create over one million jobs.

America’s “job creation deficit” due to slower growth since 2002 is well over 20 million jobs – and that’s just about the number of jobs our country needs right now to put America back to work at decent wages.

The Transpacific-Partnership is the greatest danger yet.

The TPP would be the death blow for American manufacturing.

It would give up all of our economic leverage to an international commission that would put the interests of foreign countries above our own.

It would further open our markets to aggressive currency cheaters. It would make it easier for our trading competitors to ship cheap subsidized goods into U.S. markets – while allowing foreign countries to continue putting barriers in front of our exports.

The TPP would lower tariffs on foreign cars, while leaving in place the foreign practices that keep American cars from being sold overseas. The TPP even created a backdoor for China to supply car parts for automobiles made in Mexico.

The agreement would also force American workers to compete directly against workers from Vietnam, one of the lowest wage countries on Earth.

Not only will the TPP undermine our economy, but it will undermine our independence.

The TPP creates a new international commission that makes decisions the American people can’t veto.

These commissions are great Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street funders who can spend vast amounts of money to influence the outcomes.

It should be no surprise then that Hillary Clinton, according to Bloomberg, took a “leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership”.

She praised or pushed the TPP on 45 separate occasions, and even called it the “gold standard”.

Hillary Clinton was totally for the TPP just a short while ago, but when she saw my stance, which is totally against, she was shamed into saying she would be against it too – but have no doubt, she will immediately approve it if it is put before her, guaranteed.

She will do this just as she has betrayed American workers for Wall Street throughout her career.

Here’s how it would go: she would make a small token change, declare the pact fixed, and ram it through.

That’s why Hillary is now only saying she has problems with the TPP “in its current form,” – ensuring that she can rush to embrace it again at her earliest opportunity.

If the media doesn’t believe me, I have a challenge for you. Ask Hillary Clinton if she is willing to withdraw from the TPP her first day in office and unconditionally rule out its passage in any form.

There is no way to “fix” the TPP. We need bilateral trade deals. We do not need to enter into another massive international agreement that ties us up and binds us down.

A Trump Administration will change our failed trade policy – quickly

Here are 7 steps I would pursue right away to bring back our jobs.

One: I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has not yet been ratified.

Two: I’m going to appoint the toughest and smartest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.

Three: I’m going to direct the Secretary of Commerce to identify every violation of trade agreements a foreign country is currently using to harm our workers. I will then direct all appropriate agencies to use every tool under American and international law to end these abuses.

Four: I’m going tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers. And I don’t mean just a little bit better, I mean a lot better. If they do not agree to a renegotiation, then I will submit notice under Article 2205 of the NAFTA agreement that America intends to withdraw from the deal.

Five: I am going to instruct my Treasury Secretary to label China a currency manipulator. Any country that devalues their currency in order to take advantage of the United States will be met with sharply

Six: I am going to instruct the U.S. Trade Representative to bring trade cases against China, both in this country and at the WTO. China’s unfair subsidy behavior is prohibited by the terms of its entrance to the WTO, and I intend to enforce those rules.

Seven: If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs consistent with Section 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

President Reagan deployed similar trade measures when motorcycle and semiconductor imports threatened U.S. industry. His tariff on Japanese motorcycles was 45% and his tariff to shield America’s semiconductor industry was 100%.

Hillary Clinton, and her campaign of fear, will try to spread the lie that these actions will start a trade war. She has it completely backwards.

Hillary Clinton unleashed a trade war against the American worker when she supported one terrible trade deal after another – from NAFTA to China to South Korea.

A Trump Administration will end that war by getting a fair deal for the American people.

The era of economic surrender will finally be over.

A new era of prosperity will finally begin.

America will be independent once more.

Under a Trump Presidency, the American worker will finally have a President who will protect them and fight for them.

We will stand up to trade cheating anywhere and everywhere it threatens an American job.

We will make America the best place in the world to start a business, hire workers, and open a factory.

This includes massive tax reform to lift the crushing burdens on American workers and businesses.

We will also get rid of wasteful rules and regulations which are destroying our job creation capacity.

Many people think that these regulations are an even greater impediment than the fact that we are one of the highest taxed nations in the world.

We are also going to fully capture America’s tremendous energy capacity. This will create vast profits for our workers and begin reducing our deficit. Hillary Clinton wants to shut down energy production and shut down the mines.

A Trump Administration will also ensure that we start using American steel for American infrastructure.

Just like the American steel from Pennsylvania that built the Empire State building.

It will be American steel that will fortify American’s crumbling bridges.

It will be American steel that sends our skyscrapers soaring into the sky.

It will be American steel that rebuilds our inner cities.

It will be American hands that remake this country, and it will be American energy – mined from American resources – that powers this country.

It will be American workers who are hired to do the job.

We are going to put American-produced steel back into the backbone of our country. This alone will create massive numbers of jobs.

On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, we are going to put America First again.

We are going to make America wealthy again.

We are going to reject Hillary Clinton’s politics of fear, futility, and incompetence.

We are going to embrace the possibilities of change.

It is time to believe in the future.

It is time to believe in each other.

It is time to Believe In America.

This Is How We Are Going To Make America Great Again – For All Americans.

We Are Going To Make America Great Again For Everyone – Greater Than Ever Befor
