Dr. Michael Brown reminds us that Trump was never our Savior

In his most recent column, Dr. Brown makes great points as always. I know far too many people who have treated Trump like the Messiah for four years. He never was. He did some great things, and some not so great things. What he DID was far more important than what he tweeted or said, by the way, and far more impactful for our nation and our world. Some of his decisions will benefit us for generations to come.
 
Some people got distracted or discouraged by Trump’s personality. That’s too bad, because you often have to look past that in people. For example, many people, like some politicians and spiritual leaders, are icky sweet in person and turn on the charm, but behind the scenes they’re doing great evil.
 
I don’t believe Trump did anything he didn’t think would benefit America. Sometimes his approach has been less than diplomatic, to be sure, but I do think he honestly tried to do what was best for AMERICA. The entrenched interests on both sides fought him tooth and nail. They never wanted someone to ask questions or upset their apple cart. They liked the “old way of doing business”, which of course, was doing NOTHING.
 
We know there was election fraud, and there’s a certain amount in every election, and I’m still hoping that Trump can win this fairly.
 
But if Biden wins this unfairly, we are commanded to go on with our lives like God’s people have in every generation, regardless of who’s in charge. And remember that only God, not politicians, can save us.
 
“Put not your trust in princes…who cannot save” Psalm 146:3

Prince William didn’t want to terrify anyone by admitting he had Covid….

So Prince William didn’t want to tell anyone about his bout with Covid, so as not to scare people, and he gets a pass, but when Trump didn’t terrify all of America in January by telling them that 2 million people ARE GOING TO DIE, (according to the NY Times) he’s a jerk. Okay. Got it.

BTW, I know a few talk show hosts who’ve had Covid, but didn’t tell their audience. That’s their choice of course, but I think as a professional communicator, you owe it to people to share what you’re going through (within reason).

God forbid some of these guys admit a frailty. I shared my experience with Covid because I’m a mortal being like everyone else,  and I thought it might help some people

Why would the media intentionally frighten people about a virus? Hmm. Let’s take a guess…

Why would media folks bend the truth?

There’s job security in clicks. Post the most ridiculous scary headlines, cherrypicked to terrify people, and you’re guaranteed clicks.

Then there’s the Us vs Them aspect. White collar bloggers have no idea what it’s like to have to leave their homes to keep their homes. They don’t care if you’re suffering. They don’t talk to people like you. Unless their favorite watering hole closes down, and then they’ll miss you.

And of course there’s the lack of curiosity and fact checking on any stories that fit their agenda. Put it together and what have you got? Bippity boppity BOO!

Pastors, you have permission to preach about politics!

If you’re a Pastor, there’s good news! Dr. Wayne Grudem, Phoenix Seminary’s Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies is giving you permission to take a stand on the issues of the day. It’s okay to be bold, and educate your congregation on civics and how the Bible speaks to all areas of life. It’s not even against the law! Courageous pastors have changed the world in every generation. We need them now more than ever.

anti-lockdowners: time to take a stand!

This was a great column from Stacy Rudin on Medium. If you question the efficacy of masks, “you want to kill grandma”, “you’re ignoring science”, “you’d kill people to revive the ecomony”, “you’re a Trump supporter”, etc.

Not really. We, the thinking people, have questions, as we should.

If you come to Vegas, you’re “gambling with your life”! Oh, no!

Yes, having fun is the worst possible thing you could do now. Traveling? Especially to Vegas? Even worse. You’d be “gambling with your life” according to Pro Publica.

Breaking news: There is inherent risk in LIVING. Getting on a plane that might crash, sitting next to someone who, even before March 2020, could give you God-knows-what disease. Drinking too much in Vegas. Hooking up in Vegas, and getting God-knows-what disease…Blowing the house payment on the penny slots…

Enough, already!

Of course the journalists writing this and the doctors they interview for the story have not lost a paycheck. As usual. Why don’t they talk to some business owners who have lost everything? Get their thoughts on things?

“New York City is dead, and it’s not coming back” according to this native New Yorker

In an interesting blog post, this comedy club owner and native New Yorker clearly outlines why he believes NYC won’t come back from the economic and societal changes caused by the pandemic. He makes some great points, many of which apply to Vegas, I’m afraid.

What he fails to mention are the economic policies created by liberal politicians who made the lockdown worse, and recovery less likely, as wealthy people have fled the high taxes and see no need to return.

Getting that “free” vaccine may cost you more than you realize

There’s more and more talk of “tracking” people who’ve had Covid-19, had the vaccine, or haven’t had either one, through biometrics.

This is a great opportunity for those who want to track our health and possibly our movements, to be able to justify it under the guise of what’s best for “public health”. You may not care about what happens in Third World countries, or the feasibility of tracking people with no access to clean water, much less the Internet, but Immunity Passports may be the next requirement for travel.

So much for ever seeing Israel! And I really wanted to go, too.

Anyone who objects to getting a rushed-to-market vaccine for Covid “violates the social contract”??

Are they serious? A couple of medical “experts” from Case Western University submitted an editorial to USA Today where they clearly outlined their vision for the vaccine that isn’t even here yet. Getting the rushed-to-market vaccine is “patriotic”, and religious objections will NOT be allowed. “Personal preference” objections violate the “social contract”. I see.

This would seem outrageous and impossible to enforce, if it weren’t for the implications of not being allowed to go certain places or hold a job if you aren’t vaccinated. Others have called for that, too.

These clowns want people to carry “immunization cards” to prove they’ve been vaccinated. For what, a virus strain that will go away and be replaced by another one in a few years?

And what about people like me, who’ve already had Covid? We’re off the hook, right?

Who will be forced to get the jab first? Medical professionals? First responders? TEACHERS? Hairdressers? Anyone who works in hospitality, like CASINO and CRUISE SHIP workers? Serious questions we need to be asking.

Sure, give money to clinics that turn children into medical eunuchs. Why not?

I harbor no ill will toward any adult who wants to add or subtract a body part or take hormones. That’s a choice they should be free to make, although extensive research has proven they’re not happier after surgery. Suicide rates are higher among transgenders, etc. That being said, it is EVIL to allow children, who cannot consent to anything else, to become medical eunuchs. Regardless of how you feel about it, government shouldn’t be paying for ANY of this. But that’s California – what do you expect?
