Trump’s biggest mistake: Hiring Paul Manafort

Published

on

When Paul Manafort was first announced as campaign manager for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential election campaign, most Americans asked, “Who?” He wasn’t exactly a household name at the time, but reports started trickling out that painted him in a negative light. It was still during a time before the media started really going after then-candidate Trump, so Manafort wasn’t as heavily targeted as he would have been had his tenure lasted well into the general election season.

But even a cursory investigation into Manafort’s past revealed very startling information. His ties to both the Russians and Ukrainians were evident, as was his penchant for playing political hardball. Perhaps this was what was so appealing about him to candidate Trump who is known as a fighter. But alarm bells should have been ringing loud and clear that Manafort was the kind of guy you wanted on your side if you’re trying to circumvent the government, not when you’re trying to become part of it.

None of this seemed to concern candidate Trump. If anything, it made Manafort appealing enough to give him the reins over the campaign for a short period of time. It was during his reign that Manafort was able to do serious damage that is now coming back to haunt the President.

Reports of polling information being given to Russians who had ties to their intelligence agencies may be the smoking gun Robert Mueller has been holding for a while. When he declared last month that Manafort’s plea deal was done because he had told lies while allegedly cooperating with the investigation, many analysts assumed there was something important in Mueller’s pocket. Manafort had already been convicted at that point on separate charges. His cooperation no longer needed to be secured.

If Mueller has evidence the Trump campaign was feeding sensitive information to Russia they could use to help candidate Trump win the election, this is the big C-word – collusion – and it would have been as close to the orbit of candidate Trump as anything we’ve seen so far. Forget meetings with Trump Jr. Forget Michael Flynn’s meetings during transition. If candidate Trump’s campaign manager himself was directly dealing with Russian contacts over sensitive election information, the only thing left for the President to claim is that he was completely left out of the loop by his closest allies.

In the President’s defense, this is actually quite possible. Plausible deniability is in full effect here, and whether Manafort discussed his Russian intentions with candidate Trump or not, it will be very difficult to prove it. Knowing what we know about Manafort, there’s a very good chance he actually did try to cut deals with the Russians without his boss’s knowledge.

While collusion directly between the President and Russian nationals almost certainly didn’t happen, this doesn’t change one glaring observation about the President. He doesn’t pick the “best people” as he often claims. He surrounds himself with people like Manafort, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, and a gaggle of nefarious characters who have all gotten the President in trouble by association. These aren’t good people. The President’s orbit has been littered with the type of swamp creatures he promised to get rid of when elected President.

None of this is likely to impact the President directly. But he desperately needs to put the Mueller investigation behind him before the 2020 election season ramps up. He put his trust in the wrong people and that trust is going to come back and bite him.

It’s ironic that the people who helped him win his first election may be the people who cost him his second election. With the rise of radical leftism in the Democratic Party, now is not the time for vulnerability in the GOP’s 2020 candidates.

Did Jesus die exactly 1000 years after King David died?

Did Jesus die exactly 1000 years after King David died

History doesn’t tell us exactly when Yeshua was born. Luke tells us that He was about 30 years old when He began His ministry and we know it lasted approximately three and a half years.

And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, – Luke 3:23 (KJV)

We know that King David died in 970 AD. The math might start sounding pretty cool at this point, but I’ll elaborate.

Scholars put Yeshua’s birth to likely fall in the 6-4 BC range. Experts place the range of His death (and resurrection) between 30-33 AD as a result of the data that they’ve worked out.

If He did die in 30 AD, that would mean that he died exactly 1000 years after his human ancestor King David.

Some will point out that the calendars were changed, going from 364 to 360 up to 365 at different points within this time range across the various regions, but using the accepted calendars, we can claim that it’s possible for it to be a 1000 year gap. Knowing the amazing order and precision with which our Father has established His creation, it wouldn’t shock me to find out some day that it was precisely 1000 years all the way down to the second.

The sons of God in Genesis 6 were not the sons of Seth (and Nephilim were really giants)

The sons of God in Genesis 6 were not the sons of Seth and Nephilim were really giants

There are two camps of hermeneutics about how to reconcile the strange verses in the beginning of Genesis 6. We would like to demonstrate that the popular one is distinctly wrong and that the less popular one often takes Bible scholars down the wrong path.

It’s easy to see why the early church was very averse to the proper interpretation. They didn’t want to scare those new to the faith off with strange discussions of evil angels coming down to earth to take wives of human women, so they came up with an alternative to the obvious interpretation to better fit their sensibilities.

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:1-2 (KJV)

The common interpretation is that the “sons of God” were the sons of Seth and that the “daughters of men” were the daughters of Cain. The phrase for “sons of God” in this verse, Bene Ha’elohim, is used many times in the Bible and always refers to divine creatures created by God. These were angels. That’s all there is to it.

For easy proof of this, we simply need to apply logic to a verse that follows.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Genesis 6:4 (KJV)

Sons of Seth that married daughters of Cain would not be able to yield giants (or as they’re called in other translations, Nephilim). Many of the earliest translations try to distort the words to fit their hermeneutics by saying that these weren’t really giants but were just really heroic but evil men. The 1599 Geneva Bible footnote says that “giants” could be interpreted as “tyrants.” This is false.

We go into much more depth on this topic and why many of the modern Bible scholars who are properly translating these verses tend to distort the truth in a dangerous way in our video.

Evidence points to some dinosaurs living beyond the extinction event

Evidence points to some dinosaurs living beyond the extinction event

It is, for all practical purposes, nearly impossible for the vast majority of people who have received a modern education to even consider the possibility that dinosaurs are not as old as we have been told. It’s a topic that I’ve avoided because the presuppositions are so powerful among the general population.

Today, I decided to tackle the topic with one purpose: to start a discussion with those who have an open mind. I’m well aware that most minds will be closed and there will be much more sarcasm than discourse, but ridicule from the indoctrinated masses is a small price to pay if just one person can hear this and decide to dig deeper into science and the Bible to have the truth revealed.

It’s been instilled in our minds as common knowledge that the dinosaurs died off 65 million years ago in the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event with the most prevalent alleged culprit being the impact of a comet or asteroid at Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. For the most part, anything that’s considered common knowledge can be sustained without anyone questioning the assumptions. For example, it was common knowledge based upon what was easily observable that the sun, moon, and stars revolved around the earth. That was finally debunked, of course, but scientific debate on the model of our solar system continued until the early 20th century.

A more recent example of common knowledge being wrong is the idea that acid caused by bad diet or stress is what causes ulcers. In 2005, Barry Marshall and Robin Warren won the Nobel Prize for Medicine by demonstrating that the vast majority of ulcers were caused by an infection of the bacterium H. pylori.

Now is not the time to debate young earth versus ancient earth, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that dinosaurs were around in the time of man. Even a brave segment of the secular scientist world has started questioning whether the extinction event killed off all of them based upon mounting evidence. There was even a formerly prominent professor who learned the hard way that bringing forth compelling scientific evidence of dinosaurs walking with men can earn people a quick entry onto the black list.

Over the centuries, intellectuals have had a difficult time having their worldviews shattered. The funny thing is that the existence of modern era dinosaurs doesn’t change much. It could mean that small pockets of the world were protected from the extinction event. One would not have to make huge adjustments to their worldview if this were the case which is why it’s so perplexing that they won’t even explore the possibility. It’s reminiscent of the persecution that Galileo received, only this time it’s not at the hand of the Christian church but rather at the hands of the church of science.

I want to go much deeper on the issue of why there seems to be reluctance at best and a systematic coverup at worst, but we’ll have to explore that on a future video. For now, I’d like to turn to a video we watched that gives a pretty interesting perspective. While I don’t agree with all of the conclusions or evidence, there’s enough good to make it appropriate for sharing.
