Melania Trump recites ‘The Lord’s Prayer’; sends demonic Left into another meltdown

trump-rally-at-orlando-melbourne-airport-2-18-2017

Yesterday, an estimated 9,000 people convened for a rally for President Trump at Orlando-Melbourne Airport in Florida.

Reportedly, thousands had descended on the airport as early as 4 a.m. that morning.

Melania Trump began the rally by reciting The Lord’s Prayer, which was taught to us by Jesus Christ Himself (Matthew 6:9-13).

The humongous crowd of 9,000 received the prayer enthusiastically.

But Melania’s recitation of The Lord’s Prayer catapulted the Left into another collective meltdown.

As reported by FoxNews:

Leftists on social media tore into First Lady Melania Trump, mocking her accent and religion and branding her everything from a hostage to a whore – all for the secular offense of reciting “The Lord’s Prayer.”

Here’s a sample:

@TrumpUriNation: “Melania read the ‘our father’ like a whore in confession after a night of escorting”

@splattne: “Melania prays (reads) the Our Father. Makes Jesus turn in his grave. Oh wait…”

@adrianshort: “With an hour’s practice I could probably say the Lord’s Prayer better in Slovene than Melania Trump does it in English.”

@carnojoe: “God Bless her, but listening to Melania do ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ sounds like someone getting cursed to become a ‘Dracula’.”

@MattDonnelly: “The way Melania choked through that Our Father tells me she has not spoken aloud for weeks.”

@GerryDuggan: “Trump is still there, so Melania’s prayer didn’t work.”

The Left’s meltdown over Melania’ recitation of The Lord’s Prayer reminds me of this:

For the Left to pick on Melania Trump for her accent is especially mean and cruel.

Melania was born in Slovenia, then part of Yugoslavia, on April 26, 1970, of humble parents. Her father managed car and motorcycle dealerships for a state-owned vehicle manufacturer; Melania’s mother was a patternmaker at a children’s clothing manufacturer.

Melania began modeling at age 5 and started doing commercials at 16. After attending the University of Ljubljana for a year, she modeled for fashion houses in Milan and Paris. She relocated to New York City in 1996 on a work visa.

Melania first met Donald Trump at a Fashion Week party in NYC in 1998. In 2001, Melania became a legal permanent resident of the United States. She and Trump were engaged in 2004, and married in an Anglican service in 2005. In 2006, Melania Trump obtained full U.S. citizenship.

Melania Trump speaks six languages: English, French, Italian, German, Serbo-Croatian and her native Slovene.

Sunday Devotional: Who are our ‘neighbors’ and our ‘enemies’? How are we to ‘love’ them?

In Matthew 22:36-39, a Pharisee asked Jesus, “Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?”

Jesus said to him, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbor as yourself.

More than 14 years ago, after a journey that took some 10 years, I returned to Him. Since my coming home, I can honestly say I have loved the Lord, my God, with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole mind, and with all my strength.

But, knowing all the foibles of fallen humanity — foibles of which I amply partake — and the darkness of the human heart, I have not been able to “love my neighbor as myself.” Knowing my own wretchedness, I don’t even love myself with my whole heart, my whole mind, and my whole soul!

To love my neighbor as myself is difficult enough. But in Matthew 5:43-48, Jesus tells us we must do even more:

“You have heard that it was said,
You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.
But I say to you, love your enemies
and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your heavenly Father,
for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good,
and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have?
Do not the tax collectors do the same?
And if you greet your brothers only,
what is unusual about that?
Do not the pagans do the same?
So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

The above passages from Matthew 22 and Matthew 5 leave us with these questions:

  • Who are my “neighbors”?
  • What does “loving” my neighbors mean?
  • Who are my “enemies”?
  • What does “loving” my enemies mean?

Alas, most priests, if not all of the priests whom I’ve heard, don’t define or explain those terms — which is puzzling because the answers are given, of course, by Christ Himself.

In Luke 10:29-37, in response to the question “And who is my neighbor”, our Lord replied with the parable of the good Samaritan:

“A man fell victim to robbers as he went down to Jerusalem from Jericho. They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead. A priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. Likewise, a Levite came to the place, and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight. He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn, and cared for him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction, ‘Take care of him. If you spend more than what I have given you, I shall repay you on my way back.’ Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers’ victim?” He answered, “The one who treated him with mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

Note that Jesus did not identify the robbers as our “neighbors”. Our “neighbor” is the man who “fell victim to robbers” who himself had done no wrong.

In Leviticus 19:17-18, it is said:

“You shall not bear hatred for your brother or sister in your heart.
Though you may have to reprove your fellow citizen,
do not incur sin because of him.
Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against any of your people.
You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

And so, Luke 10 and Leviticus 19 give us the definitions we need:

  1. From Luke 10’s parable of the good Samaritan, we learn that our “neighbor” is anyone we encounter in our lives, even strangers, who find themselves in foul circumstances through no fault of their own.
  2. From the parable of the good Samaritan, we learn that to “love our neighbor” means to treat those who are in need “with mercy,” that is, with kindness and compassion, and to provide assistance.
  3. But the “neighbor” in the parable of the good Samaritan was a man who fell victim to robbers through no fault of his own. What about people who find themselves in foul circumstances through their own fault? This is where “love your enemies” comes in.
  4. Our “enemies,” therefore, differ from our “neighbors” in that “enemies” are those who knowingly do wrong.
  5. That, in turn, implies that, unlike our neighbors, we are not to treat our enemies — those who knowingly do wrong — with mercy, kindness, compassion, and assistance.
  6. But we must still “love our enemies”. So how are we to love our enemies? As Leviticus 19:17-18 instructs, to love our enemies means that:
    1. We “rebuke” them: Rebuke is defined as “to criticize sharply“.
    2. We bear no hatred for them in our hearts.
    3. We do not seek revenge: Revenge is not the same as to mete out justice — revenge is defined as retaliation in kind or degree; to mete out justice is defined as “the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments”. (Just is defined as “morally upright or good”.) Unlike the impartial meting out of justice, “revenge” has an emotional component, which is where “hatred” comes in.
    4. We do not bear a grudge: Once justice is rendered, we let it go.
    5. We pray for them — that they repent and return to God.

Recognizing the above definitions, to “love” our “neighbors” and our “enemies” is a task that is neither simple nor easy. When we falter, just remember this:

Jesus loves us this much

David Horowitz Brilliantly Exposes Muslim Student’s True Intentions – UC San Diego

This student provides the perfect representation of Muslim perspectives.

From the UC San Diego Muslim Student Association (MSA) web page:

“MSA at UCSD was formed when students of Muslim culture and heritage formed the group to meet the specific needs of the underrepresented Muslim students, staff, and faculty, studying, working, and teaching at UCSD. Years later, under a much changed structure and membership, MSA at UCSD still serves the Muslim community with the same goals of minimizing under-representation and misrepresentation of our community

Recognizing that Muslims and those living in predominantly Muslim countries share a common heritage, MSA at UCSD strives to serve and represent these persons at the UCSD campus through educational, cultural, and social programs and activities. MSA at UCSD provides a social and cultural outlet for members of the Muslim community. Furthermore, recognizing that Muslims and their history, culture, and institutions are often misrepresented or dehumanized by orientalism and mainstream media sources, MSA at UCSD strives to increase the representation of Muslim perspectives at all levels of society, specifically at the university and stresses the fair and objective study of Islam through its programs and activities.”

D.C. police arrest Trump inauguration domestic terrorists

Mere days before President Trump’s inauguration, using hidden cameras, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas captured video and audio evidence of a radical Left group plotting to disrupt and cause mayhem at the inauguration.

Members of DisruptJ20 were captured on video in Pizzagate’s Comet Ping Pong pizzeria discussing how they would disrupt the pro-Trump Deploraball on the night of January 19 at the National Press Building, Washington, DC, by releasing butyric acid stink-bombs into the ventilation system and setting off fire alarm sprinklers.

Those plans are outright terrorism and in violation of D.C. Code 22-3571.01(6) that carries a 5-year prison sentence:

“It shall be unlawful for anyone to willfully or knowingly, with the intent of intimidating or frightening people, causing panic or civil unrest….”

One of the terrorists, Luke Kuhn of the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition, was heard on the video threatening the D.C. government and the police:

“The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.”

For the video, see “Video evidence of the Left’s terrorist plans for Trump inauguration”.

Well, it looks like the D.C. police took the threats seriously by arresting three of the DisruptJ20 terrorists: Scott Ryan Charney (aka Scott Green), Colin Dunn and Luke Kuhn.

Scott Ryan Charney was the first to be arrested.

As reported by Andrea Noble of the Washington Times, Scott Charney was arrested on January 19, the night before the inauguration, for conspiracy to commit assault. Charney, 34, was one of the three men caught on Project Veritas’ camera.

Court documents indicate that police relied on the Project Veritas video, as well as emails sent between protest organizers, including emails sent by Charney to several individuals stating that he had conducted reconnaissance at the National Press Club, and believed his group “would be able to accomplish their objective ‘with no negative consequences for our side, nor any collateral damage.’”

Here’s the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s press release.

On February 15, Project Veritas tweeted that Luke Kuhn and Colin Dunn had also been arrested:

Police should also look into Luke Kuhn’s pedophile activities, based on his writings that were unearthed by citizen journalists on Reddit.

(1) On Sept. 22, 1997, Kuhn wrote in an essay titled “Ronald McDonald the child-molesting clown”:

“a burger loaded with E. Coli or Mad Cow disease will do a child far more damage than some seedy sexual encounter in the woods behind the school could ever dream of.”

(2) In an email on April 14, 1998, Kuhn wrote:

I have been a sexually-active bisexual since I was 12 years old…. Here in Montgomey County, MD, one of the things the Utopian Anarchist Party (a youth militia when you get right down to it) has been doing is running an underground railroad for runaways…. Keep up the good fight, for you are waging a holy war against the devils of psychiatry and minimum age laws…. I know one thing, if I had had parents who put me in a mental hospital for being Gay-or for being an anarchist, I would probably have burned them out for it.”

(3) On June 19, 1998, Kuhn wrote:

“I am writing in response to the lurid tales that have been circulating for the past week accusing the UAP [Utopian Anarchist Party] of running ‘child-pornography’ and other such commercial operations involving young people…. Yes, I did post a few articles to Boychat,which I found through a law-enforcement Web site. Why? What better place to post articles about the Mary Kay Latourneau case. Yes, I support the right of young people to CHOOSE to be sexually active if they so desire. As I stated in my original posts on the subject, I started having sex by my own choice when I was 12. My partner was 15 or 16. He asked first, but I kept going back for more-and never, ever regretted it.”

Neo-con Bill Kristol openly supports a deep-state coup: What this means for Trump’s presidency

On February 13, General Mike Flynn resigned from being President Trump’s national security adviser and apologized for telling then-VP-elect Mike Pence an untruth — that Flynn had not discussed the issue of sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Reportedly, Flynn resigned in lieu of being outright fired.

President Trump did the right thing in removing Flynn because he cannot have as his adviser someone who lies and who might have violated the law (Logan Act) in speaking with and negotiating with the Russian ambassador without Trump’s authorization.

But this matter is more than “just” the removal of a dishonest aide because it has to do with how Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador came to light in the first place. Only U.S. intelligence agencies could have accessed, by illegally wiretapping, Flynn’s conversation, and then leaked the transcript of the conversation to the MSM who are just chafing at the bit to find anything to take down Trump’s presidency.

In the last weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies were complicit in an effort to subvert the November 8 election with wholly unverified and unfounded allegations that Russia had intervened in the election by hacking and leaking to WikiLeaks damaging emails of the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and the chair of her campaign John Podesta. Trump responded that, as President, he will reform the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA.

At the time, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) darkly warned that Trump would be “really dumb” to take on the intelligence community because “they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.” Asked if this was a threat against Trump, former Senator Ron Paul (R) said, “I think he [Schumer] is speaking the truth there — better watch out. I think Trump knows about it. That’s why he has private security.” (See my post “Trump’s war with the CIA”)

The take-down of Mike Flynn was the first shot at the Trump administration from the intelligence agencies that are bureaucracies in the executive branch of the U.S. government over which President Trump presumably is the head. The intelligence agencies’ illegal wiretapping of Flynn’s phone conversation and transmission of the transcript to the MSM therefore is an act of revolt, pure and simple. As Thomas Lifson of the American Thinker points out:

Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government. An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics. Almost certainly, its new head, [CIA Director] Mike Pompeo, was not consulted . . . .

Note that the law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media. Not only is the crime underlying the “scandal” being ignored, but the criminals are being hailed. On Morning Joe‘s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers “heroes.” …

The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right.  But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.

This interference in domestic politics by the CIA should be regarded as a major threat to our democracy, but of course our Trump-hating domestic media are reveling in a major point scored against the new president.

To make matters even worse, the leak of Flynn’s conversation is only one of several leaks from the Trump administration. In a series of tweets, President Trump identifies the problem:

trump-tweet-on-leakstrump-tweets-on-intelligence1trump-tweets-on-intelligence

On the intelligence agencies’ takedown of Flynn, neo-conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor at large of The Weekly Standard and a network political commentator, tweeted:

bill-kristol-coup-tweet-2-14-2017

Kristol’s declaration that he prefers the unelected “deep state” to the constitutional government of duly-elected President Trump is nothing other than Kristol’s admission that he supports a coup d’état.

One of Donald Trump’s campaign slogans was “Drain the Swamp”. President Trump must thoroughly excise the rot in the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) — Gen. Flynn would have been director of the NSA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the FBI must arrest the wiretappers and leakers, the reporters who solicited and received the transcript from an illegal wiretap, as well as Bill Kristol for openly advocating and fomenting treason against the United States (as per Article III of the U.S. Constitution).

The continuation of Trump’s presidency and his very life depend on it.

Pray for President Trump. Pray for America!

Homosexual Seattle mayor to give State of City address at mosque, slams Trump administration

ed-murray

Trump Derangement Syndrome on steroids: Where you have a homosexual mayor and advocate for the LGBT community giving a speech in a Muslim place of worship, in which their Islamic law considers homosexual acts a punishable crime.

From KIRO7: Mayor Ed Murray plans to give his State of the City address next week at a mosque in North Seattle. The address on Tuesday, his spokesman said, is meant to stand with the Seattle Muslim community “as we fight sanctioned discrimination by the Trump Administration.”

Murray made the announcement Monday with City Council President Bruce Harrell. This will be the first time Murray has held one a major speech to Council outside City Hall, though previous mayors have done so, his staff said.

Idris Mosque was opened in 1981 and is open to Muslims and non-Muslims.

“Both the City and Idris Mosque are committed to the American ideal of separation of church and state,” Murray’s spokesman, Benton Strong, said in an e-mail statement. “With this address Mayor Murray and Council are standing with Seattle’s Muslim community in their house of worship as we fight state sanctioned discrimination by the Trump Administration.”

“Throughout its history Seattle has stood with communities facing persecution from the government, including during the civil rights era at Black churches. “

The address will be given during a special Seattle City Council meeting which will be open to the public. It will be led by Harrell at 9:30 a.m. Doors open an hour earlier.
