Looks to be Trump

       Imagine, after all the hee - hawing, the funny faces, smirks, name calling, Jimmy Fallon jokes, dude looks like he may actually make it. This guy might just soon be the new president of the United States. At first it seemed a joke. A few years ago my wife and I were laughing at him while viewing the Apprentice. The general public most knew him for often stating his famous phrase: "your fired". Mr Proud To Be A Billionaire might soon likely be talking like that face to face to people like Bashar al-Assad, and Kim Jong-un. The first year of his presidency will likely be the most comedic, parodied, presidential term in world history. One will definitely have to tape Saturday Night Live at least for the first month just to witness the kind of jokes and satire those clowns will create from an accomplishment of this one time reality tv star. No, not only a star, but a billionaire star who ended up being the funniest presidential candidate ever to run for the big office. But not only is he funny, what is really humorous is that this guy may actually win.
       No I am not voting for Donald Trump. Sadly I am beginning to lose faith in the guy I really want to win. I believe that he, Ben Carson, would have been a great president but the media, when he was winning, kept throwing punches and jabs at him and he was not able to fight back strongly. I understand that some people think he is weak and that he did not fight back with a strong voice, but as I have heard lately, the person with the loudest voice is not always necessarily the strongest, nor most importantly the wisest. But at least for the Republican primary Trump seems to be bashing everybody to pieces. Only Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio appear to have a chance and those two, especially Rubio, will crumble off the playing field if the game does not change quickly. Reading the current standings Trump is ahead in states like Alabama and Oklahoma. He has already won New Hampshire and Nevada and is faring well in Iowa and South Carolina, states that are usually dominated by more evangelical candidates. It does not seem like the south will pull for the evangelical opponent this election, especially since the most evangelical of them all, Mike Huckabee, fell out of the race weeks ago. Maybe the South had enough of always supporting the evangelical opponent, or maybe Donald Trump's strong words and signs of strength is enough for most Republican voters to convince them that when he comes to office he will not be there to play around with folks like Jeff Merkley, Tammy Baldwin, or the ACLU. He is actually there to win and to tell the ACLU, People for the American Way, and groups like Naral Pro Choice America to go jump of a cliff. America does not have to bow down to them nor do her citizens owe them anything. Many people I have spoken to say they like Donald Trump because he is not politically correct. He is not afraid to say what is on his mind. He does not allow the media to push him around. I agree. He does not allow the Liberal Party to push him around or allow news pushers to allow him to feel ashamed for disagreeing with them. He does not feel uncomfortable about attending a show like The View and telling a Whoopie Goldberg to go fly a kite. I believe that was what was missing from past Republican candidates like Mitt Romney and John McCain, and what is happening to Ben Carson. They all have difficulty talking straight to the media in a strong, tough manner, while telling them that they could care less what Barbara Walter's or whoever star's opinion is or whatever is the data of the day, "this is what I believe and this is where I stand".
       But the election is not over yet and I am still rooting for Ben Carson. Hope he wins. There is still some months left. On the Democratic side it looks like Hilary Clinton's going to win it by a land slide but how will she do against Donald Trump? That will be an interesting show. On an article I read months ago it showed that if Bernie Sanders won the Democratic nomination he would have a better chance of beating Trump then Clinton. "Hhmmm". But that was written months ago. Who knows what will happen now? But I bet that more than 90 percent of those Democrats voting did not think about that.

A Passing of a Judicial Hero

       Last night while viewing the headlines of a taping of the evening news my heart sank while hearing of the passing of a judicial hero, Justice Antonin Scalia. Appointed to the court in 1986 by former President Ronald Reagan, Scalia served as a member of the Supreme Court for more than thirty years. He was a hero for true conservatives. Many members of Congress and political leaders will publicly profess that they are serious followers of Jesus Christ, but soon after voted into their specific office will begin serving and following orders of the media or various Liberal big wigs who make a career out of telling politicians and members of the public what to do. Judge Scalia stood up to the Liberal attackers and their media buddies by not backing down to their threats by voting against abortion, gay marriage, by voting for American's rights to have guns, against laws that were biased for minority and women. He voted to strike out the laws that made distinctions between races, gender, and sexual orientation. He stood up for the death penalty being constitutional. Judge Scalia's theme was to analyze and apply to the rulings what is already written in the Constitution not to change it based on Media ranting and supposed change of mood of the American culture.
       Liberal media is on a mission to change America partly by changing the constitution into a group of laws that are entirely different than what was initially created and intended by our Founding Fathers. John Adams, James Madison, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton never intended to make homosexuality into a big fuss, a behavior to be honored and supported by every individual like it or not. These political figures never supported a woman choosing to kill her baby so that she can have sex whenever and with whomever she wants while living a life full of convenience. They never intended to place extra burden on rich, successful Americans to carry on their backs the daily needs of the family and people who are less successful. Yet everyday the Constitution and rulings in the court are being described and interpreted into something entirely different. An attempt by Liberal Media and political non-christians to turn America into something entirely different than what The United States was intended to be. An attempt to turn America into an atheist, immoral, hedonistic country similar to the people described by Paul in Roman 1:21-22 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.
       Liberal media is on a mission to change America. But a Christian who is well versed in the Scriptures understands that electing a specific judge or president is not going to change the country into a true Christian nation, what it was originally intended to be. It will help in regards to backing up Christian men and women who desire to live and enjoy a lifestyle described by God without receiving continued harassment by non-christian people. A pro - Christian judge or president will help in  keeping irate Liberals and media members off the backs and yards of Christian people, God fearing churches, and their businesses. A pro - Christian judge or president will not be as helpful towards enticing non church goers and non believers into visiting a God -  fearing church and opening up their Bibles to get to intimately know the Lord. A pro - Christian judge or president will not be able to have much influence toward discouraging Americans from opening their hearts and lives to the evils of practicing Yoga, transgenderism, and worshiping immoral music and their performers. That is the job of the true Christians and their churches living and dwelling within the country. But the task appears to be getting more difficult as President Obama and his cronies continue to make and fight for laws pushing immoral, anti-christ activities ahead while pushing the pro-christian activities out. A pro christian judicial member will help but by how much and for how long?
       Judge Scalia, a dedicated catholic, did his part to keep America as Christian as possible. He tried to allow this country to continue to practice as much of its pro-godly duties in as well a capable manner as possible while dwelling in a current world filled with so much carnal influences. America needs more people like Judge Scalia to stand up and partake in these important judicial and political roles so that these positions are not heavily occupied by non-Jesus supporters. These non-Jesus supporters are turning the United States into an atheist country that may soon resemble a nation similar to the one that nailed Jesus Christ to the Cross. A nation that professes to be Christian but in no way behaves like one.
       Who will take over Judge Scalia's place? Who knows? Hopefully the Christian population in America will not "ho hum" through this important event like they tend to do when something both spiritually and politically important occurs. Hopefully they will turn away from their entertainment and hobbies for a moment so that they can grasp what is occurring, pray to God, then precisely follow what the Lord has decided is the next best step. Let us go to the polls and vote for people who will respect God, Christians, while fighting for causes that are for Christ and not against Him. Hopefully Christians will stop voting for people because they recite famous speeches of Martin Luther King, or represent a specific skin color, or political party. Christians need to vote for people and rulings that value God, especially now so, as Judge Scalia fought for throughout his long career, political parasites will not continue to eat away at the Constitution while changing it to fit their desired version of America instead of the version that America was originally designed to represent.
