Why Nikki Haley should replace Mike Pence as Vice President for 2020

Why Nikki Haley should replace Mike Pence as Vice President for 2020

Vice President Mike Pence is a likable politician, especially to evangelicals. That’s the reason he was named as President Trump’s running mate in the first place. He added that evangelical side to the ticket that helped rein in conservative Christians who were concerned about candidate Trump’s history of personal immorality.

It worked and now many evangelicals who were skeptical through the 2016 campaign have become avid fans of the President.

Going into a play for a second term, it’s time for the President to shuffle up the White House a bit. This may be considered  a poor move for most Presidents, but this administration has been in a state of flux from the beginning. Playing a few more rounds of musical chairs won’t change the perspectives already in place about the transient nature of the Trump White House.

If we’re going to be making major shifts anyway, we might as well make a move that will not only solidify the President’s chances of winning reelection, but would also assist Republicans in keeping the White House in 2024.

It’s time for Vice President Nikki Haley. Here are four reasons why.

The first female Vice President should be a Republican

It often surprises people to know Republicans are often the first to break artificial barriers that enable minorities to achieve public office. We shouldn’t be shocked by this when many Americans don’t even know Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

It’s only fitting that the first woman elected to Vice President should be a Republican. Democrats tried with Geraldine Ferraro in 1984. Republicans tried with Sarah Palin in 2008. Republicans should try again in 2020 with Nikki Haley. Third time’s a charm.

Haley is adored by many, hated by some

In the two years she served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Haley became such a prominent voice that her fan base grew on both sides of the political aisle. Republicans loved her strong deployment of their policy stances on the international stage. Democrats liked her willingness to stand up to the President when she disagreed.

Yes, there are haters. Some Republicans didn’t appreciate her independence from the President while many Democrats hated the (R) next to her name, but she’s been one of the most universally liked politicians in recent years.

Mike Pence served his purpose

As noted before, Pence was the evangelical card the President needed for his first run. That’s no longer required. Evangelicals have made up their minds one way or the other now that the President has been in office. Pence no longer adds anything to the equation.

What will he do next? The President and most Republicans likely don’t care. He can prepare a 2024 run. He can go back to Indiana politics. He could be President at a university, return to talk radio, or work on his memoirs. But he shouldn’t be the running mate in 2020.

Haley 2024 would be very easy to push

Vice Presidents have had a conspicuously poor track record running for President. The last successful bid was over three decades ago and resulted in the last one-term administration.

Haley would be different. She has an opportunity to establish herself as a world leader if President Trump utilizes her skills properly.

Of course this is all assuming the President wins a second term.

No other Vice Presidential choice would drive up reelection chances more than Nikki Haley. Mike Pence served his purpose admirably. Now, it’s time for Haley to step up and finish the job.

Open your mind about the pre-tribulation rapture deception

Open your mind about the pre-tribulation rapture deception

The pre-tribulation rapture theory that the majority of Christian churches around the world promote is very clearly false. Unfortunately, its popularity has helped to maintain the belief despite knowledge being increased and truth becoming more apparent.

Our Lord said that we are not appointed to wrath. This is one of the most common points of evidence that pre-tribulation rapture preachers use when promoting the concept that the church will be taken away before the Great Tribulation. One must understand the difference between tribulation and wrath in order to fully grasp why believers in Jesus Christ will not face wrath but will face tribulation.

That is a study in itself that I will tackle in the future. For now, I would like to focus on one key point that scares me as much as anything else when it comes to the deception of a pre-tribulation rapture. I was listening to a noted Bible scholar, one who speaks at various conferences and has a popular website. He reaches tens of thousands of believers and those seeking truth every month.

He was discussing a separate topic in an interview when it shifted to his opinion of the rapture. He said that he believed in the rapture because if it wasn’t true, then most of the teaching that he had heard and the teachers he had followed would be incorrect if there was no pre-tribulation rapture. It struck me because he was knowledgeable enough to call it into question but hesitant because of his history as a Christian.

This is dangerous. We cannot allow teachings, however prevalent in the modern church, to guide us in the wrong direction if the Bible states otherwise. I am not going to use this article to try to convince you about the truth regarding the rapture. Instead, I simply want to point out things that you should know in your heart so that you may decide to search the scriptures and research the history of the rapture on your own. I’ll cover it in more detail in the future, but for now, all I want you to do is open your mind to the possibilities that many of your church leaders have been deceived and therefore you have been deceived.

  • Satan’s Goal: There is nothing that the adversary can do to you if you wear the full Armor of God. His only method for stealing away as many souls as possible is to make them believe that they do not need to wear their armor. A pre-tribulation rapture theory can convince people that they are not going to face the great trials that are coming, so when they do come, their armor is absent.
  • Flintstones Vitamin Preaching: A friend who tried to hire me to promote Son of God told me that the world was not ready for three-inch needle of Biblical doctrine plunged into their body to deliver the Word of God. He said we needed to ease the world into believing by giving them movies like Son of God that acted like Flintstones Vitamins to get them heading in the right direction. It was a long debate and obviously I passed on the lucrative project, but it points to the concept that many hold: if you give the people some Biblical truth that they can stomach, they’re more likely to come for more. This concept is what makes many preachers who are aware of the pre-tribulation deception to continue the preaching in hopes that they can eventually dive deeper into less popular doctrines.
  • The Cool Kids Club: Privately, I was told that if you’re a Bible scholar with ambitions of speaking at conferences and selling books, that you had to promote a pre-tribulation rapture. Those who do not embrace the teaching will not be allowed into the club. As much as we’d all like to believe that the truth should always guide us, I’ve seen very intelligent and moving preachers embrace the doctrine in order to keep their club membership and continue to be invited to these conferences. Similar to Flintstones vitamins, they feel that anything they can do to get people to believe Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior is fine as long as it does not blaspheme Him. This is dangerous, of course, because when people are left unaware, they are unprepared.
  • Satan’s Tool: The scariest part about the pre-tribulation rapture is that it promotes the concept that people will be given a second chance to repent and make things right in their lives. They are told that the righteous will be taken away and that they will then have seven years to find their faith and redeem their soul. I admit that when I believed in a pre-tribulation rapture, this concept had me practically wishing that I wasn’t rapture so I could be a “warrior of faith” during the tribulation itself, earning my redemption. This concept is going to leave many people confused and force them to believe other deceptions when the tribulation starts without a rapture.

But there’s one important caveat that must be added to this teaching. We cannot know what the Great Tribulation will bring in our lives and therefore we shouldn’t wait for tribulation to start before getting our spiritual house in order. If use the rapture as a sign to “do good now” is a huge danger for Christians, an equally dangerous notion is waiting for tribulation to start before we get our act together. One look at the extreme turmoil in the Middle East and the persecutions faced by Christians around the world can be enough to make some believe the tribulation has already started. Perhaps it has. Regardless of when it starts or if it’s started already, we must be firm in our belief and continue to live as if the day of judgment can meet us at any moment. God forbid you might be hit by a truck tomorrow if your soul is not saved by Grace yet.

If you understand the reasons why a pre-tribulation rapture is preached, you can research it yourself to discover the truth that the Bible teaches.

Eric Swalwell interview by Chris Wallace demonstrates why he’s not a factor in the presidential race

Eric Swalwell interview by Chris Wallace demonstrates why hes not a factor in the presidential race

I’ve always been a firm believer in policy over personality. In fact, I don’t talk very often about a politician’s personality because some of the worst policies have accompanied great personalities while some great policies are sunk by poor personalities supporting them. With the currant herd of Democratic candidates not to the point of thinning out yet, it takes a very poor personality to make me comment, especially considering all of the bad policies already being tossed out there.

Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has the type of personality that’s worth noting even at this stage. He has the charisma of a pufferfish and demonstrated this very clearly talking to Chris Wallace this morning on Fox News.

I thought Senator Kamala Harris had an unlikable personality, but she’s practically Keanu Reeves compared to Swalwell. He comes across insincere when he tries so, so hard to sound sincere. His arguments are bland and his passion seems to be manufactured. I went to Twitter to see what’s being said about him and coincidentally found our EIC with a funny Tweet about him, again dealing with Swalwell’s personality.

The reality is there are MAYBE five or six candidates who have a legitimate shot at the nomination, and Eric Swalwell isn’t in the top 10 right now. With a personality like his, he might not be in the top 10 in a field of 11.

Watch Borderless: The Lauren Southern documentary YouTube suppressed

Watch Borderless The Lauren Southern documentary YouTube suppressed

Conservative journalist Lauren Southern is no stranger to controversy. She has told many stories in her career that progressive tech giants have wanted to suppress, but none have been more immediately and completely quashed than Borderless, her newest documentary that blows the lid on a topic that mainstream media refuses to cover.

Southern traveled through nine countries as she and her team traced the steps of migrants from the Middle East attempting to make it to Europe. They were in danger through much of the filming and despite warnings by many of the people they interviewed, they continued to seek the truth. It was a balanced documentary, not one loaded with Southern’s perspectives as many expected. She didn’t need to insert her agenda. The story told itself and revealed the truths for both migrants seeking better lives and Europeans fearful for their own in the new status quo of life in the EU.

But YouTube wasn’t having it. The premiere of the documentary was derailed by “technical” difficulties. Once they were able to finally get it uploaded and working, it got to 65K views before getting removed by YouTube. Undaunted, the documentary producers uploaded the backup above and, as of now, it’s still up. Watch while it’s still available. Suppression is likely coming again soon.

After watching the documentary, I can attest that there’s absolutely zero reason why anyone should suppress it. There’s no bigotry. No taint. Just facts. Superbly done by Lauren Southern and her team. Must watch. Quite scary.
