ALTERED REALITY NEWS FLASH: EMPRESS HILLARY CLINTON DENIES THE APOSTLE PAUL A VISA

Today Empress Hillary Clinton issued an executive order directing her State Department to deny Christians entry into the dominions of the New World Empire. Sources say the application of a religious provocateur widely known as Apostle Paul for a visa to enter her domain prompted her to issue her executive order.  The State Department cited the apostle’s writings as grounds for the denial. The apostle is a high-ranking leader of a radical atheist cult that denounces the worship of the gods, discriminates against gays, denies women equal rights, and opposes infanticide for birth control.

The Apostle Paul, previously known as Saul of Tarsus, is a follower of the founder of Christianity, Jesus of Nazareth. Pontius Pilate, Prefect of the Roman province of Judaea ordered Jesus crucified on March 29, 1991.  Christians claimed that Jesus rose from the dead on March 31, 1991. Christians cite his supposed resurrection as proof Jesus was the Jewish Messiah. Sensibly calling that claim blasphemy Paul joined with those Jews that both Jewish and Roman authorities directed to stamp out the seditious cult.

After relentlessly prosecuting Christians for several years, Paul claims he experienced a vision while traveling to Damascus, Syria.  Incredibly, Paul says  he saw Jesus in this vision. Immediately afterwards Paul says he spent three years in the Arabian desert. What he did there is unknown, but he apparently spent that time undergoing indoctrination in the Christian ideology.

Since his desert experience Paul has preached the seditious teachings of Jesus throughout southern Europe. Paul has mislead thousands of previously loyal citizens to adopt his atheistic Christian beliefs.

Because rumors abound that Christians drink human blood and eat human flesh, authorities have repeatedly investigated Christian churches for engaging unauthorized human sacrifices. Thus far authorities have not confirmed any of these rumors. Nevertheless, Christians make no secret of their refusal to worship the empress and the Roman gods, their opposition to the gay lifestyle and pederasty, and their insistence all women should dress and behave modestly, including those engaged in temple worship. Because of its implications for population control, the empress is especially concerned by their opposition to infanticide for birth control. She considers this a direct threat to the stability of the empire.  Therefore, the empress issued her  executive order.

ESTABLISHING A TRAJECTORY INTO ETERNITY

voteSince I am into politics, I get emails from the local Republican politicians and Donald Trump’s campaign. They are all screaming vote at the top of their lungs, and they each giving different reasons. Their reason are generally about the here and now, not the hereafter.

After we die, what difference does it make? Remember how Hillary Clinton asked that question.

Of course, H. Clinton wanted to get as far away from that video that she and President Obama used to explain the terrorist attack. And yet there were funerals.

So is this sort of lying why we should not vote for H. Clinton, that we should vote for Donald Trump instead? No.

Why does government exist? Why do each of us exist? We all have our own beliefs, but most of us believe that after this life somehow we will continue on into eternity. Therefore, when we vote we should be considering how our vote helps us and those we love prepare for eternity.

To prepare for eternity, what kind of government do we need? What does our Lord in heaven think about government? The Bible comes at that subject basically from two different directions (Here is a good reference for finding various verses). As this article points out, What does the Bible say about government?, we are to be obedient to the governing authorities, but obedience to God comes first. As 1 Samuel 8, illustrates quite clearly, we also have some responsibility for the type of government we choose to live under. We never want to idolize our government. We always want to put our Lord in Heaven at the forefront of our existence.

We the People empower our leaders. That’s why we get the leadership we deserve. When we choose the wrong kind of leaders, we allow the wrong kind of leaders to help us establish our trajectory into eternity.

If we want the kind of leadership that will help us, our families, our friends, our neighbors, and our countrymen reach heaven in glory, then we need to choose modest and honest men and women to lead us. Big government programs won’t get us to heaven. Absurdly rosy promises from politicians won’t get anyone into heaven. What will get us into heaven is reading and studying our Bibles and practicing what it teaches. Therefore, what need from our government is a government that protects our right to live a good Christian life. What we need from our government is leadership that does not get in the way and block us when we try obey our Lord’s command to spread His Gospel.

Matthew 28:18-20 New King James Version (NKJV)

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

The reason we should not vote for Hillary Clinton is that we cannot count upon her to defend our right to freedom of religion.

As the last article indicates, who we elect to be our president will not solve the problem of religious freedom. If we want to be a free people, we each have to be committed to protecting the God-given rights of our family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen. We also have to pray. Jesus is our Shepherd. Without His help, we are lost.

Nevertheless, Jesus acts through us. We are His hands and feet. So make certain you pray and do your best to vote wisely.

Hillary !! Election year 2016

Interesting.

What is interesting about this video? It is a good summary of all the scandals related to H. Clinton.

Is the video true? Well, that is a judgment call. I remember Bill Clinton’s presidency and Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State with disbelief. How did they get away with all that stuff? They did pay a lot of fines and legal bills, but they just seemed to consider those business expenses.

Anyway, here is an example. One of the accusations is that $six billion went missing in the State Department under Clinton.

The Liberal Democrat fact checkers are, of course, aggrieved that anyone would suggest such a thing.

Nevertheless, the State Department’s budget in 2012, for example, was not that large, PDF Version, FY 2012 Executive Budget Summary. So losing track of $six billion dollars over a six year period is sort of significant, State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report. However, I suppose that tidbit pales in comparison with the disastrous foreign policy H. Clinton put together for her boss, President Obama.

The fact is that there is no question about the fact H. Clinton lies. There is also no question about some of the charges.

  • That private email server? Why was she deliberately doing government business on that?
  • And the terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. We know H. Clinton and Obama never had any business blaming the attack on some stupid video. They lied.

So I don’t know where the video gets it wrong. I just know that lady doesn’t belong in the White House.

I got it from here.

This video is a complete and honest documentary of Bill & Hillary Rodham Clinton’s political history. After watching this most informative video I am convinced Hillary Rodham Clinton is not the right choice for the American Presidency. I recall, in my lifetime, Whitewater Gate, China Gate, Travel Gate,  Cattle Gate, and a host of other criminal affairs conducted by Hillary & Bill Clinton and their close associates.  Many things of which you did not know or have forgotten is revealed in this documentation and warrants a mandatory viewing. Especially if you have not yet voted or are on the fence about who to vote for. As Christians we may not agree with either party’s moral character; but I assure you we have all sinned.  In that, then, we must look at the platform of each candidate and how Biblical each comes to our own Christian values… Only Donald J. Trump passes that…

PRESIDENTIAL PROS AND CONS: THE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT

We actually have as part of our heritage a document that clearly states the purpose of government, the Declaration of Independence.  Here are the key words.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

Unfortunately, when we take the passage above out of context, we forget why men came from all over the 13 original colonies to draft and sign the Declaration of Independence. We forget that at the risk of their lives and their fortunes they were preparing to battle to strongest military power of their age. We forget they were about to embark upon a long and miserable war, and we forget why. Instead of protecting his subjects, the government of King George III just saw the wealth of the colonies and wanted to exploit it. Hence the colonists responded forcefully: “no taxation without representation”.

Do most of us (Americans) still believe that God gives us our rights, or do we believe that government gives us our rights? Given how our government spends our money, it does not seem likely. Most of the Federal budget goes to cover “pension” expenses like Social Security and “health” expenses like Medicare (see here). Since everyone likes being taken care of for “free”, there is a huge constituency such “entitlements”.

Because nothing is free, our national debt is out of control (see here).  Yet, ironically, many of the same people who want the free “entitlements” blame the deficit on defense spending, something the Constitution actually authorizes Congress to do. Those foolish people are wrong. Defense is only 21 percent of the Federal budget (see here again).

So what is the problem? Few of us spend much time studying what the Framers of our Constitution studied.  Few of us bother to read what they wrote.

Consider this webpage, The Purposes of Government. That webpage never mentions the Declaration of Independence. Instead, the author focuses upon the evolution of government. Then he describes our present state.

In more recent years, government responsibilities have extended to the economy and public service. An early principle of capitalism dictates that markets should be free from government control. But when economies spun out of control during the 1930s, and countries sank into great depressions, governments acted. The United States Congress created the Federal Reserve System in the early twentieth century to ward off inflation and monitor the value of the dollar. Franklin Roosevelt and his “Brain Trust” devised New Deal programs to shock the country into prosperity. (from here)

The economies just spun out of control?  Don’t economies spin out of control when people are encouraged to borrow recklessly, nations put up trade barriers, and government taxing and spending saps the strength of the economy? That is the fault of capitalism spun out of control?

Similarly, http://www.cliffsnotes.com provide a lame answer, What is the purpose of government, and how does a bill become law?

When you try to figure out the purpose of government, you can easily get bogged down in all of the many things a government does or should do — from defending the people to managing the federal budget. And if you ask a dozen people what the purpose of government is, you’d probably get a dozen different answers, depending on individual point of view.

That’s because everyone — and I mean everyone — has a different view of what a government should and shouldn’t do. Some think the government should control everything, while others think government should have a limited role in people’s lives. Some think that the government should be run by one person, as in a dictatorship, while others think the people should have the right to elect their representatives and leaders, as in a democracy. In fact, the purpose of government has been at the root of philosophical and political debates for many hundreds of years. Just think of any presidential debate you’ve seen: If you boil down what the candidates say, you basically end up with their views on the purpose of government. And, of course, their views usually differ quite a bit! (continued here)

What about the perspective of a journalist of renown?

Call me old-fashioned, but I still hold with the ancient Greeks who said government has only one purpose, to improve the lives of citizens. If it doesn’t, there is no reason for it, no reason at all, which is why I was a little surprised that with the nation at war, our intelligence services in a complete mess, as we just heard, the deficit soaring and jobs going overseas, the Senate decided the most important thing it needed to do was debate a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. The House will soon follow.  (from here)

Bob Schieffer provided that back in 2004. That was back when the mass media had just begun to work up to a full-throated roar for “same-sex marriage”.

Still, we began as a nation with an answer. We knew the purpose of government. At least, we once did. So with some effort we can still find websites that speak to that purpose.

So what about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump?  What I suggest is clicking on the links in their names and visiting their websites. Then read the quote below.

But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. — James Madison from The Federalist No. 51

Which candidate do you think would most concern James Madison? Which candidate is more concerned with the acquisition of power? Which candidate is most interested in protecting our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Which candidate causes you to fear more for the sake of your children?
