Grand Old Party of Pedophiles

Matthew 18:6 – But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

The announcement that Donald J. Trump is endorsing candidate Ray Moore for Senate should be of no surprise to anyone.

The fact that many of the GOP politicians who declared that the women who were sexually harassed by Moore were credible have now changed their tune.

I used to think that the Republican Party had at least some variance of respectability. But that has all changed since the Grand Old Party are enablers of Pedophiles.

It is a disgrace that America has been pulled into a swamp of spineless and self-serving men and women who once spoke of family values and morality.

These people are despicable!

The Grand Old Party can now announce that they are the Grand Old Party of Pedophiles.

Trump has ruined the Republican Party and is tearing this nation into tatters (thought I use one of 45 tweets word that he accused the FBI of being)

With Alabama having its Senatorial election within a week, the world is watching to add another pin to the downward spiral of a once credible nation

In addition to the GOP disgraceful support for Moore the Republican senate and congress passed tax cuts for the wealthy while hiking taxes for the poor. And I am of the opinion that this heartless move will eventually bring their power to a final end in 2018.

I hate to think about what is happening without admitting that Trump and his puppet master Steve Bannon has done what they set out to do. Divide and destroy America.

So here we are in 2017 witnessing Pedophile enablers in the Republican Party.

And this is all for the sake of winning a seat in the senate by losing their very soul.

This video Roy Cohn-The CIA Pedophile Ring Leader– might be of interest to you. It is about Roy Cohn who was the mentor of Donald Trump. Roy Cohn was a evil man and he also was responsible for setting up a CIA pedophile ring for reasons you will soon find intriguing and sickening.

 

Black Tuesday

Psalms 55:23 – But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

Why should I be surprised or any rational individual be taken aback with the defense of Roy Moore by the president of the United States.

Never mind that Roy Moore encounters with teenage girls as young as 14 years of age when he was an adult man in his thirties should be considered criminal. No way should anyone in their right mind even believe that these young girls were not the real one’s responsible for their own actions.

And imagine the thought that  these dastardly deeds that were done by Roy Moore is causing the Republicans a problem if he doesn’t get elected so that the president and his cronies can get that big tax windfall off the backs of middle and low-income Americans.

With one of the president’s senior advisers stating yesterday on television that the agenda is about passing the tax bill and not about young girls being sexual harassed and manipulated by candidate Moore.

President Trump gave his support for this sexual predator and came off more now to the world as an oxymoron when in the same breath spoke about women who are coming out with stories of being molested in the workplace. His words,,,“Women are very special,” he said. “I think it’s a very special time, a lot of things are coming out, and I think that’s good for our society, and I think it’s very, very good for women, and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out.”

The unfortunate thing about today is that we can now claim it as another Black Tuesday.

It seems more evident than ever that Trump nor some of his die-hard Christian followers are in any way interested in the protection and security of women, much less, young teenage girls.

As Trump was making his support and declaration for Moore in the background his wife walked away from the cameras. This is telling in so many ways. Even his daughter would not throw her support behind Moore.

Now we have a matching pair of black Tuesdays.

Black Tuesday on November 21, 2017 and Black Tuesday on November 8, 2016.

Silent No More-No More Silence

The Program Church

Deuteronomy 32:18 “You neglected the Rock who begot you, And forgot the God who gave you birth.

If you have ever been around Christians and a problem or trouble arises, you may hear the famous question, “is there anything too hard for God?”

In so many ways there has never been anything too hard for God…except for one thing.

The Program Church.

The Program Church isn’t anything new but it has gotten bigger. Especially, in some smaller churches who are doing all they can to attract new members.

There are some believers in churches who believe that the church is to function for their personal social activities.

These believers have the unfortunate concept that if programs are offered in the world to tickle the flesh, why not duplicate it and put a “Christian” spend on doing what the devil is doing so well.

Some Christians are so caught up on wanting programs to satisfy the flesh that the Spirit of God is left out of His own house of worship.

Let’s be real about this. Their will always be Christians complaining that there is not enough happening in their particular church, They will say that a certain demographics are being neglected. Whether young, old or in-between.  And the complaints are constant until the member gives up or resigns their membership.

This is the era of neglect of God and one’s fellow humankind. And today with so much hate, mass murders, wayward youth, families dissolving and natural disasters, the church is needed more than ever.

So, what is a Program Church?

A Program Church is what can be defined as folks who want to dress up, show up and do nothing for Christ.

The Program Church membership consists of complaining folks who always think it’s about “them” and not others.

Is their anything too hard for God?

You betcha. The Program Church and if change isn’t made soon we will pay a high price for neglecting the One who saved us.

Pain in the Pews

1 John 3:15 –

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

Church Massacre on Sunday  11/5/ 17 Sutherland Springs, Texas   

Twenty-six dead and twenty-seven injured during Sunday church services.

Yet again, pain in the pews.

Another mass murder in America and Americans are still divided with deciding about how guns play a role in our lives.

The members of First Baptist gathered for Sunday worship in a small farm community in Sutherland Springs, Texas unaware of the devastation that would soon overtake them without warning. A senseless murderer entered the church and killed men, women and children.

As the news spread across America online and on cable news, I was saddened to sense that this nation has become desensitize with yet another massacre.

Last week after the Halloween terrorist that caused the death of eight people and the wounding of others, New Yorkers decided to continue with their yearly Halloween parade. Several reporting on the Halloween parade said that it was a tradition and that they weren’t going to be deterred from proceeding with this event. The reasoning also was that they were proving to the terrorists that Americans were not going to hover in fear.

And to think that here we are a week later, once again dealing with another gruesome attack by a gun-toting individual with his anger set on killing as many as was in his line of fire.

Sadly, mass murder seems to have become the norm in America.

Pain in the pews are at times self-afflicted and at other times brought upon by individuals we are familiar with or strangers lurking in the dark waiting to destroy what they believe are individuals who serve no purpose to live.

As it always goes, politicians throw out their lame expression of sorrow with the words, “my prayers and thoughts are with the…” you can pretty much fill out the remaining statement. Their action speaks louder than their own words.

Pain in the pews.

When will it ever end? And when will humankind begin to see that there is no clear resolve with killing each other when we have yet to accept that our greatest tragedy is our own sins.

When sin ends so will death.

Is Nationalism the Other Genocide?

They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without cause. Psalm 109:3


White nationalist groups march in Shelbyville chanting ‘closed borders’ Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017. Natalie Allison/USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee

I have a question to pose to you today.

Is Nationalism the Other Genocide?

I asked this question because nationalism is spoken about as if it merely means one’s national pride and origins (birth place).

Even the meaning of populist seems to be mischaracterized,

But nationalism is really becoming troubling because in my viewpoint, it is the new code word for ethnic cleansing.

We have to face the fact that White Nationalist groups popping up out of nowhere is by no means a surprise to agencies who track the actions of hate groups.

These groups who demand an all-white nation were just waiting for the right person to give approval of their hate. And that person is our president. Donald J. Trump.

People are trying to be polite or brush-off the notion that a rational nation could never be caught committing ethnic cleansing. But let me tell you that ethnic cleansing is really taking place right under our noses here in America.

Our biggest problem right now is that we have been so distracted by changing headlines we forget that the Trump administration is not only attempting to remove everything that President Obama did doing his two-terms.

But Trump has put a dog whistle to his lips to get white Americans to believe they are the sovereign heirs to everything in this country.  Despite the fact that America was and is what it is by the sacrifice of many people of all colors and background.

The ethnic makeup of America is what makes America.

Americans who believe that nationalism means one color and that one color has the right to dictate who stays or remains in this country is a very dangerous step to make seeing that the white population is slowly diminishing into a diversity of many colors.

As we look to the new coming year there is a sense that Trump will have pretty much destroyed the very fiber in which we are woven as a melting-pot.

We ought to be very conscious about what we are reading and hearing as it relates to the words nationalism and populism.

The very thought of another Hitler Germany in 2018 isn’t to far-fetch as many want to  deny.

Hijacking #MeToo

And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and violated her. Genesis 34:2

Well, after nearly two weeks of the #MeToo movement, I have to say that it has indeed garner women and men coming out with their stories of sexual harassment and rape.

A number of women who have come out with their stories about how they found themselves helpless and defenseless by being assaulted by someone they knew (and trusted) is heart wrenching.

And on the other side of the coin are a small percentage of women who decided to jump on the bandwagon and lie about being sexually assaulted just to gain sympathy and attention. These are the women who are hijacking #MeToo.

What is also troubling is a number of actresses who were aware of the behavior and sexual meanness of Harvey Weinstein but made a conscientious decision not to make his actions public.

For a number of days now the public is being flush with daily headlines of someone declaring that they had been sexually harassed and now, they want to take the opportunity to share their pain and humilation for nothing more than to relieve themselves of self-inflicted guilt.

The unfortunate thing about some of these women who want to put their harasser on blast is that their credibility is being questioned and not the person who assaulted them.

For instance, today (10/25/17) the news of former President George H.W. Bush (43) is being accused of sexual assault by an actress four years ago. The Bush spokesperson immediately sent out an apology. But after reading the article about the alleged victim the comments and sentiments are not on her side.

You see folks; this is why victims of rape and sexual harassment rarely want to report being assaulted.

One other problem is that when the victim has a witness (or more) and no one comes immediately to their defense, it places a double jeopardy on the credibility of the accuser.

By now, fans of Bill Cosby are aware of his legal woes and all the women he allegedly molested and or raped. It took a number of years for these women to come out of the shadow. These women for the most part held their peace of telling their stories and were fearful of Cosby because of the power he used to wield within the entertainment world.

Page Six TV-Bill Cosby Trying to Take Out a 30 Million Loan 

And how about the latest payout of 32 million dollars by Bill O’Reilly and the sexual misconduct that he was accused of.

Folks, we are living in a time when we have got to stop giving passes to men and women who believe they are too powerful to go against.

Maybe one day the #MeToo will be a thing of the past.

United We Kneel

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. Psalm 12:8

On Sunday, we saw Vice President Pence walked out of the Indianapolis football game because several football players from the opposing team had kneeled during the national anthem.

Then up steps the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones declaring that if anyone on his team disrespect the flag they will not play.

Can we say hypocrites!

It is evident that President Trump has put the wrong messaging on why these football players are kneeling. And the truth of the matter is it isn’t about the American flag, our military or the National Anthem.

These men are kneeling to highlight those  police officers throughout America who have neither remorse nor concern about the killing of black men, women and children. And in many instances when the police officers are guilty of killing black people, they get off with a slap on the wrist and a “good job Charlie” salute or at times, a promotion.

What is overlooked by some white Americans is that the truth about black folks in America is most oftentimes written and spoken with untruths. American history books bear evidence of this fact.

A change of wording, dates and descriptions of black history has been so distorted that it had to be recovered to bring light on the truth.

It never ceases to amaze me that these so-called died in the wool patriots are not veterans nor have they served one day in the military for this country. They like to boast about America. They like to wear army fatigue and wave the American flag. But the majority of these patriots don’t realize that their freedom to discriminate and harass is because of some of those minorities they refuse to live or work among.

Now, we have Mike Pence who is no more than a shadow puppet of Trump showing his disrespect for the right of American football players to kneel and protest in silence. They haven’t gone out and burnt any American flags or refuse to do their jobs. No! They are only doing what this administration refuses to accept.

Their right to be 100% American citizens with all rights and privileges afforded to them as human-beings and wage earners.

The only way this nation will ever heal is to first face its ugly past and present.

United we kneel. Kneel for equality!

Is the NRA Greater than God?

1 Chronicles 16:11  Seek the LORD and his strength;  seek his presence continually!

Yet, once again, we witness another senseless tragedy of gun violence that has caused grief and agony for America.

On Sunday, October 1, 2017 during a night concert in Las Vegas a gunman opened fire on thousands of concert-goers, shooting from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The shooter had one mission. To shoot and kill as many people as he could and the saddest of his mission is that he succeeded with the death of 59 (at this writing) and the injury of 527.

As soon as the news hit social media and the national airways, unbelief and horror took over. Rumors of two and three shooters were being reported. Cries and screams of help rang out as many watched from live streaming to smartphones and pc. It seemed like hours before the carnage would end. And many felt helpless throughout the country unable to be there to assist and help the victims.

After the night of horror, on Monday morning, President Trump spoke before the American people sharing his profound grief and sadness over what he declared was an act of “pure evil.” A few hours later, the president and vice president along with their wives stood on the White House lawn for a moment of silence. The flag was also lowered to half mass.

With all these killings taking place in America we need to be honest with ourselves and confront the fact that automatic weapons do not belong in the hands of civilians. And the one organization that refuses to believe that automatic weapons are not a danger is the NRA.

So here is my thought about the NRA.

Is the NRA greater than God?

One has to ask oneself, how one organization can rule over the elected body in our Congress and in the Senate to stop them from passing laws that will eliminate having people purchase automatic weapons like the one used in so many present day massacres.

Each time a crime of violence is enacted as this, the argument is used that “responsible gun owners are not killers.” Or the old saying, “Guns don’t kill people…people do.”

So, here we are again, a few years (2013) from the Newton Hook Elementary school shooting and one year (2016) from the Orlando club shooting and the question still goes without an answer.

Then again, perhaps the NRA is greater than God…especially since God isn’t a lobbyist in the White House or in the Capital.

When will the Congress and Senate stand for life and not death?

Automatic weapons are an epidemic and so is the NRA.

Our prayers for the victims and their families-may God give you comfort and one day peace. And God bless the first responders, Las Vegas police and the unsung heroes who were assisting the victims.

Not Again-A Song Dedicated to Victims of Gun Violence

 

You Are What You Eat

1 Corinthians 10:31 – Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

By Kat L. Robertson

It’s fair to say that in today’s world most of us understand the importance of developing a healthy lifestyle to protect against sickness and disease, especially cancer.  But what does that look like? How do you proactively adapt a healthy lifestyle that will help you avoid getting sick?

I’d like to emphasize the importance of focusing on what we put into our bodies, so that we are eating for the sake of good nutrition. We begin by abstaining from all fast food (like Mikey D’s and Burger King) and food that has been processed, along with that which is microwavable for convenience.

You may not have a Farmer’s Market nearby and must rely on your local supermarket, but the value of selecting fresh fruits and vegetables should not be underestimated.

Although there are several more, these are a few of my favorite nutrient-dense green foods.

#1 – Kiwifruit

Kiwi has more vitamin C than an orange and the succulent, green meat of the fruit is overflowing with disease-fighting vitamins, minerals and enzymes that help prevent aging, improve skin health, boosts respiratory function, protects vision and improves cardiovascular health, among many other functions. Studies show that the kiwi helps to keep the stomach and intestinal tract in top shape. The skin and the seeds of an organic kiwi have high levels of digestive-friendly fiber, protein and other healthy-protecting compounds. So, you can triple your fiber intake when you eat an organic kiwi skin and all!

#2 – Kale

Kale, (one of my all-time favorites) is a powerhouse of vitamins A, C and K. It is a naturally powerful cancer-fighting food that studies have shown can help improve detoxification, support heart health and inhibit the formation and spread of malignant cancer cells. The anti-inflammatory feature of kale is that it helps to protect the body against harmful bacteria and viruses.

#3 – Spinach

Packed with B vitamins, vitamins A, C, E, and K, trace minerals like copper and magnesium, Spinach is a powerful antioxidant food. It also helps to keep cholesterol from oxidizing in your blood vessels while helping to improve circulation and promoting a healthy heart.

#4 – Watercress

This culinary delight tastes great in soups, salads and sandwiches. It’s technically a healing herb that contains at least 15 essential vitamins and minerals and many other compounds at quantities much higher than that of a typical vegetable. Watercress contains more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and more vitamin C than an orange. This amazing vegetable also contains phytonutrients, antioxidants and other “super” nutrients that help protect the body against chronic disease and cancer.

Foods rich in vitamin K help protect the brain against neurodegeneration as well as strengthen bones and prevent heart disease. Studies suggest that watercress is a powerful anti-aging food that can help people live longer with improved quality of life. If this has not been on your shopping list, it should be!

#5 – Parsley

Although used as a popular garnish for many dishes, parsley is a powerful chelating herb, which means that it can draw out toxic heavy metals and expel them from the body. Parsley is an incredible anti-cancer food, rich in flavonoids like myricetin and apigenin that research shows helps deter cancer cells and tumors. In addition, parsley is also shown to help strengthen the cellular matrices of bones as well as balance blood sugar levels to prevent diabetes.

#6 – Broccoli

Another fiber-rich cruciferous vegetable (containing phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals, and fiber that are important to your health) is broccoli, an incredible anti-cancer superfood. It contains high levels of sulforaphane, a chemoprotective substance that has been the focus of extensive cancer research. A famous study out of John Hopkins University found that broccoli and broccoli sprouts contain such high levels of sulforaphane that eating it regularly can significantly help reduce your risk of cancer.

#7 Collard Greens

Collard Greens are another cruciferous vegetable full of protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids that help lubricate joints and improve brain function. Collards also contain sulfur-containing compounds known as glucosinolates that not only help detoxify but also protect the body against pathogenic invaders. Indole-3-carbino is another healing compound in collards that help fortify the immune system and the body’s defense against cancer.

#8 – Kelp

Seaweed is a rich source of vitamins and trace minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, amino acids, omega-3s, fiber and iodine, (which is abundant in plants from the sea). Iodine is essential for brain development and proper functionality of the pituitary gland and the thyroid gland which regulates hormone production and good for your nervous system as well. Iodine plays a critical role in cancer prevention with scientific evidence that suggests that iodine deficiency is directly correlated with increased cancer progression, especially cancers of the breast.

#9 – Celery

Rich in fiber content, celery consists of electrolyte compounds that help keep the body hydrated and enzymes that help keep it clean and nourished. Celery is rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients and other compounds that help protect vital organs, vision, virility, clearing arteries, reducing inflammation and protecting the body against cancer.

#10 – Aloe Vera

Although known for its amazing healing properties when applied to the skin topically, aloe also has anti-inflammatory and laxative properties. It is a powerful remedy for upset stomachs, constipation and various gastrointestinal disorders. Aloe contains significant quantities of enzymes that help improve food digestion, boost immunity and create homeostatic balance throughout the body.

Look for interesting recipes, eat them in salads or lightly steam your veggies. The synergistic benefit of adding these greens to your diet can only enhance a healthy lifestyle. Whether you are juicing or eating raw, it is important to get a daily dose of healthy greens.

For your optimal health!

Living with Brokeness

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.     Psalm 51:17

I am still recuperating after a serious bout with heart failure.

While admitted to the hospital this past weekend, Hurricane Harvey had landed and had begun to take a toiled on Texas. The news was constantly keeping viewers abreast of the devastation that this storm was causing and of the lives that would forever be changed.

While lying in my hospital bed, there was quite a deal of commotion taking place inside my room with an uncooperative older patient making constant demands of the medical team who was treating her.

Trying my best not to focus on the pain and discomfit I was enduring, and the complaining roommate, I turned on the television to keep myself occupied with other matters in life besides my own personal health issues. It was also a great time to pray for others.

The entire time in the hospital my thoughts and conversation was with God.  Now, I was not questioning God at all. It was just my reflecting on the many promises He has kept concerning my life and the scriptures that are embedded in my heart.

By the third day in the hospital the news of the flooding in Texas was reaching its peak. Lives were now being saved through the efforts of brave neighbors, strangers and first responders. A call for volunteers and aid were asked of those able to donate.

As the hours passed by slowly, that still quiet voice was making me more aware of how all of us, no matter where we live, are vulnerable to God’s created nature.

While the storm was leaving broken lives, so was the demanding tongue and heart of my roommate. She was in grave pain and had caused a few of the hospital staff to ignore her constant ringing for assistance.

My roomate actually was living in brokeness.

I knew that this woman had a bitterness of the heart but only God can redeem and heal her sickness.

By the beginning of this week, my complaining roommate was transferred to another floor for special care and I was now ready to be discharge to go home.

Now that I am home, I am grateful that God spare me yet again.

After the hurricane in August and another hospital stay, I can attest that the best gift of life mankind can give to one another is for us to give love and show compassion.

Selfishness will never soothe a bitter spirit. Or heal a broken heart.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
