Just from a logical perspective, it means absolutely nothing that a person goes to church, whether they’re a Democrat or a Republican. There are plenty of atheists sitting in pews every Sunday. If Kristof’s point is that regular church attendance is significant in some way for a person’s views about morality, social concerns, and so on, that simply doesn’t follow. Atheists who don’t attend church can be just as moral as Christians sitting in church. I couldn’t care less if Biden attends church. The question is, what does he actually believe, and how will that inform his political decision making?

I came across this post on Twitter which, I’m paraphrasing, basically goes like this:
In China, when the government tells us something, we see and know it’s propaganda so we don’t believe it. But, you Americans… when the politicians and the media tell you something, you believe the propaganda!
That’s stuck with me for this past few days because it is so true. We Americans have grown up in such a “free” society that we take it for granted. We also take for granted the news is reported straight, the politicians give it their best to help their constituents, and so on.
I woke up from this lie, like Neo in The Matrix, in 2018. How? Because something didn’t sit right with how the media was portraying Trump in 2017. I’m not sure if you can think that far back, and remember the narrative that was painted of him. But I remember this one particular article basically said that Trump was a lonely despondent man, isolated and trapped in the White House with no allies or people he can rely on.
Well, the part that he had no one in the administration to rely on was partially true—look at all the people coming out of the woodworks turning on him now—he’s swimming with sharks! But the part that he was in siege mentality didn’t jive with what most anyone with common sense would say: that as a businessman, he probably brought a team he trusted and his family was there to support him.
So that article raised a flag and one thing led to another, and I now see that the entire world that we live in and believe to be is all on the surface. The deeper reality was and is much more scary and darker.
But, as I sit here writing this in November 2020, the truth is still buried deep. The truth I highlight today is that the media has been working hand in hand with leftist politicians to create a view of the truth that keeps people numbed and dumbed down. Just take a look at this next image:
It’s as if the six largest corporations that own all the major media outlets have a single message to share and reinforce, so that people will consciously and subconsciously accept it as the right thing.
This is the propaganda of the west. This comprehensively sly manipulation and massaging of words and pictures that make you believe that all is well. That Trump and his supporters are the racist bigots. That Biden has won the election and only Trump cultists continue to support him and divide America. All the while erasing inconvenient stories like this from history:
And because we in the west and in America especially, trust our institutions (well, I don’t. I don’t believe the media or most Democrats and leftists at all) to be honest brokers, it’s easy to see why so many Americans swallow this propaganda as truth. It’s because they’ve never suffered under an overt socialistic government that lied to get compliance.
So we are essentially the proverbial frog in the kettle, and the water is at a low boil. Can the frog survive? It depends, but I believe that this next term for Trump will truly eradicate the leftist propaganda. And that’s why the left are going all out to make sure he doesn’t serve again. It’s literally life and death for the left.
If this election hasn’t woken you up to the media propaganda apparatus, then you have to really sit down and think: am I missing something? You’ll be surprised by the answer.
From a source I trust, I believe that Trump is almost done and ready to expose the election fraud for what it is. If you look at the timeline, everything has been percolating, and I believe the negotiations behind the scenes for leniency and other deals are being cut now.
I’ve never forgotten this quote, where Trump says he loves getting even with people, taking revenge. Why? Because as a Christian, I’ve always advocated letting God judge, and turning the other cheek. And I still do. But, if you look at the injustice and evil being perpetrated on the American people in the name of “social justice” and “equality” and other nonsense that hides the totalitarian motive behind it, I believe that these types of evil need to be fought and eradicated. Sometimes, there just isn’t time or place to make nice with evil. You have to destroy it.
You’d think Cuomo would’ve learned his lesson by now, but no… he had to keep up the verbal sparring and keep nipping at Trump’s heels. Here’s what he said about the Covid vaccine:
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Monday a possible vaccine for COVID-19 is good news, but he worried the Trump administration will fail to distribute it quickly and equitably.
Pfizer said Monday morning that the two-shot vaccine it is developing is more than 90% effective in clinical trials, and could be available by the end of the year.
“It’s good news, bad news,” Cuomo said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“The good news is that the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly,” the governor said. “The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan.”
The Trump administration “is rolling out the vaccination plan and I believe it’s flawed,” Cuomo said.https://www.newsday.com/long-island/politics/gov-andrew-m-cuomo-coronavirus-vaccine-the-trump-administration-1.50061585
In normal leftist circles under normal conservative Republican roll over and beg politicians, these kind of snide insults would just be swept aside and downplayed. But Trump isn’t that type of politician, and this is what the left hates. They keep getting called out for their hypocrisy, and they keep getting insulted and ridiculed for what they assume is the leftist birthright–to mock and condescend to conservatives and deplorables because they just don’t know better.
So, Trump of course obliges Cuomo, an says New York may not get theirs until Cuomo approves. Start at 0.51:
“But, but, but…! We didn’t mean that you should give the vaccine to us!!!” New York sputters, in indignation and whiny crybaby mode. “We just wanted to stick it to you, and still get the vaccine, and show other lefties how tough we are!!” Oh….is that what you mean?
And they make their crybaby mode official:
“If dissemination of the vaccine takes place in the twilight of a Trump Administration and the president wants to play games with people’s lives, we will sue and we will win,” she threatened.
Meanwhile, Cuomo accused Trump of being a “bully.”
Did Trump threaten to withhold the vaccine?
While announcing the rollout of the vaccine — which Trump said could be available to the general population as soon as April — Trump noted that Cuomo has questioned the legitimacy of a vaccine produced under the leadership of the Trump administration.
In fact, Trump said the vaccine will only be delivered once New York gives the government authorization to do so, which Trump said “pains me.”
As soon as April, the vaccine will be available to the entire general population with the exception of places like New York state, where, for political reasons, the governor decided to say — and I don’t think it’s good politically, I think it’s very bad from a health standpoint, but he wants to take his time with the vaccine. He doesn’t trust where the vaccine’s coming from. These are coming from the greatest companies anywhere in the world, greatest labs in the world, but he doesn’t trust the fact that it’s this White House, this administration, so we won’t be delivering it to New York until we have authorization to do so, and that pains me to say that.
In fact, just last month, Cuomo said Americans should be “very skeptical” of the vaccine, explaining he doesn’t trust the Food and Drug Administration or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under Trump.
“What I said I’m going to do in New York is we’re going to put together our own group of doctors and medical experts to review the vaccine and the efficacy and the protocol, and if they say it’s safe, then I’ll go to the people of New York and I will say it’s safe, with that credibility. But I believe all across the country, you’re going to need someone other than this FDA and this CDC saying it’s safe,” Cuomo said.
So, not only has Cuomo authorized, and then hidden, the thousands of seniors that died in New York’s nursing homes, but now he’s playing politics with people’s lives–wishing it was under a Biden administration–instead of cutting red tape and rushing it to his state’s citizens.
This is and example of the type of rubbish Trump’s had to deal with for four plus years, and people just tut-tut his response while never looking further to see why he responded as he did.
If you haven’t read or watched Thomas Wictor, I suggest you do. This one gives you a good idea of what we’re dealing with, and how Trump is the perfect man to fix the world.
In this country where we have still the semblance of a republic, this is about as close as you can get to a people’s uprising against the dark forces of a soft coup that is being perpetrated even as we speak.
I’ll have more on the current election fraud, but this mass movement or uprising of people coming out in support of President Trump and America is heartening. It means we haven’t completely lost our will to fight and stand up and be counted when our very lives and way of living is under constant attack.
I write to simply say that I stand with ALL of the people there in DC today, and with ALL of us patriots across the land that are speaking out and sharing and raising our voices against the deep state that has always been out to sabotage President Trump.
If the massive theft of this election hasn’t opened your eyes to the forces that have been arrayed against Trump (and us), then you need to open your mind to the reality that YOUR paradigm may be wrong. That YOUR worldview may be and is wrong. Wake up. Think.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Things are Looking Up
Today was pretty crazy in terms of happenings. I see things are moving along in the courts, and there are so many embedded Trump haters all starting to bubble up now that the light is being shined on them (I’m looking at you AZ SOS). I wondered why it is only now that Trump is cleaning house, at least in the Pentagon. I believe that these next few days or weeks will be explosive, and he needs trusted people to help steer the country in the right direction without disruption. Also, this may be laying the groundwork for the next four years. We’ll see…
But, there are some undercurrents which I don’t want to share more right now. All I can say is there will be lots of interesting players coming out that may have tampered with out elections, and not all in the States. This would take this election to a whole other level. I wouldn’t be surprised if the focus goes to other countries soon.
I’m also reading a lot of foreigners commenting on our elections, and it’s a bit surreal and sobering to see how seriously they take our election. I believe that it’s a global struggle–mirrored here in the States between the left and right–that of individual freedom and responsibility vs. a nanny state overseeing and controlling your thoughts and actions. I feel especially for a lot of Hong Kongers who know EXACTLY WHAT we’re facing here, as they are being oppressed and persecuted and prosecuted for their protests for freedom.
A Christian Perspective
As a Christian, I don’t see how we can so easily give up our individual freedoms for the betterment of society as a whole–which is what I think this election is ultimately about. Why? Because it’s not about the motive. It’s about the mechanism. I know we all want equality, no racism, no prejudice, prosperity for all, righting injustices. But, the way the world wants to achieve these goals means the destruction of the individual and all that comes with it. They want to enforce it by decree, by blacklisting, by canceling, by penalizing, by peer pressure, by censorship, until we all cow in subservience to the global “worldly good.” Along the way, people will forget the motive, and only feel the mechanism of this world’s “goodness.” In fact, we see some of this already. AOC and Jennifer Rubin and the Trump Integrity Project have all talked about making lists of people who aid and abetted Trump in his eeeeeeevil racist deeds.What makes me even more sad is that too many Christians, some well meaning and naive, others explicitly embracing, go along with the world’s definition of good and forget that our good is on a whole different plane. They believe that with their freedom, they can use the good of the world to achieve spiritual good. I think this is a fool’s errand, and not biblical at that.
Jesus accepted the way man created empires and their own set of laws, and let it be. He didn’t come to create a theocracy as the Zealots wanted. He came for a spiritual kingdom that can never die. And if we, especially Christians, conflate the two, this means 1) we bring God down to our level, or 2) we never really believed in the power of God to do good through each person’s own efforts and initiative. Jesus’ broad command was to love God and love others. He didn’t mean for us to leverage the powers of government to do this. He wanted his church to do this, apart from any worldly system.
And that’s why I think so many people are focused like a laser beam on us right now. Now, I don’t believe we are a Christian nation. However, I do believe we have a culture of Christianity, and that has allowed us to do a lot of good around the world. And we, more so than most countries, value freedom and individuality above all–based on Christian ethics. The world knows that, so that’s why freedom lovers worldwide are nervous for us, and the globalists who want to put their jackboots on our neck want to destroy our culture of freedom. And this is the difference between Trump vs. Biden–a value of freedom vs. a value of control.
Sounds pretty serious, doesn’t it? It’s weird, but I’m still as positive and sure of Trump’s re-election than ever. In fact, if you can read between the lines, you should take all the histrionics of Dems and media and lefty influencers as all a confidence game. They’re really scared, and it’s all bluster.We’ve already won. Now it’s just a matter of showing it to our fellow citizens, and the world.
Be of good cheer people! Things are going along as planned.
