Senator Sasse hits Trump on 1st Amendment

There’s only one GOP Senator who has consistently called out the President when he does something bad. Ted Cruz? Mike Lee? Rand Paul? No, no, and no. Though they’ve been bold at times, they have backed down when deemed necessary.

Senator Ben Sasse, as new as he is, has been the only consistent voice to call out the President. The President Tweeted an attack directed at his latest target, NBC:

The Senator shot back:

“Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?”

Trump betrays conservatives: Nominates anti-Christian, pro-LGBT activist to EEOC

Trump betrays conservatives Nominates anti-Christian pro-LGBT activist to EEOC

When US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy created a non-existent constitutional right to same-sex marriage out of thin air in Obergefell v. Hodges, justices in the minority of the 5-4 decision “legalizing” the practice warned of the inevitable threat it would create to the First Amendment right to religious freedom.

While LGBT radicals and their allies in the Gay Mafia deny it, warnings by Justices Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito about the threats have proven to be true. In fact, the threat to religious liberty resulting from the LGBT agenda existed even before Obergefell.

In a piece I wrote shortly after the same-sex marriage ruling, I joined my fellow conservatives in expressing our concerns over the possible loss of religious liberty. In the article, I quoted several pro-LGBT activists who flat-out admitted that taking down religious liberty was the plan all along. One of those activists is Chai Feldblum, a homosexual activist appointed as a commissioner to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by Barack Obama.

The “zero-sum game” is how homosexual activist law professor and Obama EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) appointee Chai Feldblum describes the legal battles between modern “rights” based on homosexual “orientation” (read: behavior) and the traditional American principle of religious liberty.

“Gays win, Christians lose,” Feldblum said, predicting homosexuals would win most of the legal contests.

Well, it looks like Donald Trump is ready to give Feldblum and the LGBT agenda a big boost.

In an announcement last week, the “most pro-LGBT” Republican candidate for president re-nominated Feldblum to keep her job at the EEOC. And despite claims by some in Trump’s inner circle of “evangelical advisors” that this only happened because Trump wasn’t briefed on Feldblum or involved in her nomination, the track record of the man who swore to “do everything in (his) power to protect LGBTQ citizens” at the Republican National Convention indicates that this is right in line with the priorities of President Trump and Vice President Pence.

For example, when Trump followed Jared and Ivanka’s advice to reaffirm an Obama executive order that essentially legalized discrimination against Christian business owners by requiring them to embrace the LGBT agenda or lose their right to do business with the federal government, Pence–who has a history of his own when it comes to caving to LGBT radicals–defended the pro-LGBT decision.

“I think throughout the campaign, President Trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration. I mean, he was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him”

In June, Trump pretended to reverse an Obama directive that allowed students to use bathrooms and showers based on their gender identity. In reality, Trump’s order opened the door for the government to prosecute schools that fail to recognize a transgendered student’s “right” to use the facility of their choice.

From the very beginning, the Fellowship of the Pharisees have defended Trump because he’s “God’s man,” and he will protect religious liberty. It seems to me that nominating a pro-LGBT, anti-Christian lesbian activist to a federal job where she can advance the LGBT agenda fails in that department.

Chuck Grassley attempts to defend killing the estate tax

Chuck Grassley attempts to defend killing the estate tax

Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa has his heart in the right place, but his delivery often falls short. The estate tax definitely needs to be abolished, but trying to sell the idea by invoking booze, women, and movies is probably the wrong approach.

Here’s what he said earlier this month:

“I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing, as opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.”

Just because people aren’t investing doesn’t mean we’re spending every darn penny we have on booze, women, or movies. It’s time for the Senator to get his messaging fixed.

Grassley: Ending estate tax ‘recognizes people that are investing,’ not ‘spending every darn penny’

People with Down Syndrome are indeed expensive in a socialist society

People with Down Syndrome are indeed expensive in a socialist society

If there is any warning to the people to stop listening to socialism siren’s song of “I will take care of you,” the needed deaths of the “unfit” should be that very reason to stop the socialist train and move back towards liberty and freedom.  However, a media hell bent on socialism would never point that out to you, unless they do a story on Iceland and show how great they are reducing the population of those who have any disabilities at all, especially Down Syndrome.

You have heard the stories, that when a pre-born child is diagnosed with Down Syndrome, usually the doctors recommend the mother to terminate the pregnancy, and most of the time down syndrome children are denied the God-given right to life.  Let us not forget how the UK government deemed one baby unfit to live, and left to die without even trying to make one possible attempt to maybe save it from a painful death for the child and the family as well.  Never forget that our media supported Hitler before they had to turn on him.  Truth of the matter is that progressives have been big supporters of eugenics until World War II humbled them, at least for awhile.

In a world of situational ethics in which flawed people try to make up the rules God already made, there will always be those who try to challenge God in their attempt to create heaven on earth.  In a socialist world, people with disabilities like Down Syndrome are costly to society, and eventually to keep the socialist scam going and its powerlords fat and rich, they will have to get rid of people that can’t produce the goods for them.  In God’s economy every human life is precious and wonderfully made.  Also, people that have disabilities like autism and Down Syndrome are part of God’s plan to always expose the so-called wise as the fools they enjoy being (1 Corinthians 1:27).
