Stealth Christians and weekly Bible studies at Trump White House

One little-known fact about the Trump administration are its stealth Christians:

(1) Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, is described by a friend as “non-practicing orthodox Catholic”.

(2) Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President, who grew up in poverty in New Jersey, raised by her mother after her parents divorced when Kellyanne was only three, attends daily Mass.

(3) Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, wore a pair of socks with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to his Senate confirmation hearing.

(4) First Lady Melania Trump is a practicing Catholic. On February 18, 2017, Melania kicked off a rally at Orlando-Melbourne Airport in Florida by reciting the Lord’s Prayer. On May 24, 2017, after she asked Pope Francis to bless her rosary, then prayed in the chapel of the Bambin Gesù (Baby Jesus) pediatric hospital where she visited the young patients and their families, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Melania indeed is Catholic — the first Catholic First Lady since Jackie Kennedy.

The latest news is sure to make the Left’s heads explode even more — the Trump White House hosts Cabinet Bible Study meetings!

Jennifer Wishon reports for CBN News, July 31, 2017:

“A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House.

Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God’s Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.

They’ve been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don’t mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.”

Ralph Drollinger, a former NBA-player who founded the evangelical Capitol Ministries — Bible studies in 40 state capitols, a number of foreign capitols, as well as weekly studies in the U.S. House and Senate — now leads about a dozen members of President Trump’s Cabinet in weekly studies of the scriptures.

Some of the regulars are Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue,  CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Drollinger said he doesn’t think a formal Bible study among executive Cabinet members has been done in at least 100 years:

“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned. He’ll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town.'”

President Trump, a lifelong Presbyterian, is invited to attend the Bible studies; each week he receives a copy of Drollinger’s teaching. Vice President Pence is a sponsor of the Cabinet Bible studies and plans to join the study as his schedule permits.

What a refreshing change from the Obama administration’s voodoo incantations in the White House, a crypto Muslim POTUS, and a Muslim CIA director (John Brennan).

Trump makes 180° reversal on WikiLeaks, now called ‘a hostile agent’ in collusion with Russia

Donald Trump owes WikiLeaks no small amount for his winning the 2016 presidential election.

Were it not for WikiLeaks‘ publishing of Democrat emails — those of Hillary Clinton, Democratic National Committee (DNC), and John Podesta — the voter would not have known the corrupt pay-to-play Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s illegal private email server, the DNC’s corruption and betrayal of Hillary’s primary rival Bernie Sanders, and the satanic practices of Podesta and Pizzagate.

Throughout, Trump had been supportive and never critical of WikiLeaks. As an example, on January 4, 2017, Trump tweeted this:

In a speech on October 10, 2016, Trump declared, “I love WikiLeaks!” (New York Times)

Before he became the Trump administration’s CIA director, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) similarly was approving of the WikiLeaks emails. On July 24, 2016, Pompeo tweeted this:

Then was then, now is now.

Then, Trump needed WikiLeaks. Now that he’s President, WikiLeaks has become “a hostile agent”.

Matthew Rosenberg reports for The New York Times that in his first speech as director of the CIA yesterday, April 13, 2017, Mike Pompeo attacked WikiLeaks as a stateless hostile intelligence unit eager to do the bidding of Russia and other U.S. adversaries. Pompeo said, “It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”

“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.” You would think we’re still in the Obama administration or a Hillary Clinton administration.

To support his assessment, Pompeo cited as evidence of WikiLeaks‘ hostile intent the latter’s release of Democratic Party emails — the exact same emails that Pompeo had promoted in July 2016, but now insists had been stolen by Russian hackers, although both WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 maintain the leaker was a DNC staffer named Seth Rich, 27.

On early Sunday morning, July 10, 2016, Seth was shot dead in the streets of Washington, DC. His assassination remains unsolved.

Pompeo also cited how WikiLeaks encouraged followers to join the C.I.A. and steal secrets, and how “it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States while seeking support from antidemocratic countries.”

Pompeo’s harshest words were reserved for Assange, whom Pompeo calls a “narcissist,” “a fraud — a coward hiding behind a screen,” and a “false wizard”.

There goes our hope and expectation that a President Trump would commend Assange and provide him political asylum and a safe refuge in America.

The 180° reversal is because the Trump administration now finds itself on the receiving end of WikiLeaks disclosures. Last month, the group released thousands of pages of documents describing sophisticated software tools and techniques used by the C.I.A. to break into the American people’s smartphones, computers and even internet-connected televisions.

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!
