As far as political leadership, only Trump has the political power to hold off the evil of the Democrats.  There are no potential Republican candidates as demonstrated by past elections since Reagan who have that political power and will.

Most of the Republicans are either Rockefeller Democratic Socialists or lack the personality to attract enough voters to defeat the Democrats..  Hopefully another will arise before the 2024 elections

In truth, the evil is not in either the Republicans or Democrats. It lies with him who uses them both to feed their own greed, and hatred of those who oppose their own objectives, which is to mock the Creator by trying to convince the ignorant on both sides that they are the true "Chosen One".

Trying to pin all the evil on one side or the other is playing right into their hands and helps to fulfill their own evil goal. 

The only one ignorance is Bliss to is those who use it for their own evil ends.

This pastor was right to lay hands on the President. The pastor is supposed to do that in prayer especially intercessory prayer for an individual over a given issue.  For the record this pastor was a political prisoner in Turkey for a couple of years before Trump got him out to resume his life here with his family.

Doesn't matter, we are commanded by Scripture to pray for our political leaders regardless of whether they are Christians or not.

"Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion.   And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts.   It is pleasing to our Savior-God to pray for them." 1 Timothy 2:1-3

We are now one people gathered together from many - and we ask for the highest spiritual and natural blessings for our nation and all other nations of this world. Bless our leader with truth, dignity, and above all a sincere and honest drive to serve such a great people. We ask your blessings on the minds and hearts of the representative men and women which govern us in Senate and House of Representatives and may they us better people through their example of proper and straightforward service. We ask this in the name of Jesus - So be it.

Well if you could indeed get the word from the grandest possible entity that would be ideal.   But believing words of ancient men to be divine is substantially worse then employing critical thinking using modern knowledge and methods of reason.

What I want to know is why the particular faith of the victims of gross injustices matters?

Then why does it seem people make so much bigger a deal of it when Christians are persecuted than any other group?

Only for those lacking empathy for all mankind. You may believe that this is the norm today but I personally do not. I've been all over and know people from pretty much everywhere. It seems to me that almost everyone everywhere wants the same things for themselves and for others. The exception being those so corrupted by avarice and greed as to be empathy deficient. Admittedly there are many calling themselves Christians who fall into this category. See Donald Trump for just one example.

Christ, on the other hand, exhorted his followers to love even strangers, to welcome refugees, to be generous with the poor and to always treat others as they too would want to be treated.

So basically this prayer is designed to convince believers that Trump might be now given extraordinary powers from God to make the right decisions.   'Trust in Trump because he is doing the will of God.'

Yet another example of why religious belief overriding critical thinking is a terrible thing.

None of us should when it comes to the performance of those we elect. However, basic decency and understanding the role with which one has been entrusted most certainly should. I think we may agree that the evangelical coalition that forms a significant part of his base has sold their collective soul in supporting one whose behavior should be anathema to everything they purport to hold dear.

By trumps own actions, there is NO WAY God or Jesus is a fan of trump. Trump had it in his power to protect the Kurds, but decided not to so he could promote his own business ventures in Turkey. That's just ONE example in trumps long life of crime and debauchery.

I did not hear one word about the closing of lying mouths and shutting down of workings of deceit in high places (like the offices of Congress and the White House) in that prayer.

While I can understand that specific pastor being liberated and relieved to be so after his time imprisoned in Turkey, I want you all to take stock of Ralph Reed in the shot. Consider this was a prepared prayer, a written one, and in keeping with that, it was vetted to have no offending thing in it.

The audience was bonkers. During a solemn occasion and prayer there is normally no 'hooting and hollering' coming on.

.....Garnering media attention from around the world, elected officials and social conservative citizens from across the Nation attend this three-day event (October 11-13) with great excitement and expectation. Not only did  VVS welcome President Donald Trump, but also a  lengthy line-up  of speakers which included some of the Nation’s leading conservative voices like Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (FRC), American Family Association's Wesley Wildmon, Dennis Prager, HHS Secretary Alex Azar, Senator Josh Hawley, Michele Bachmann, Todd Starnes, Jenny Beth Martin and  many more .

Hosted by  FRC Action , a variety of break-out sessions and speaker topics about confronting socialism, upholding rights and liberties, supporting Israel, and much more were scattered throughout the first two days of the conference.

On Friday morning,  Dr. Sebastian Gorka , former Deputy of Strategy for the White House, recalled the president’s 2016 candidacy, stating “All [the President] did is open a window of liberty — a very small, grace-filled window of liberty.” He continued, warning, “that window can close in the next 389 days.” Even as he and his family are attacked by the Left on a daily basis, Gorka believes Trump will keep his promises, ensuring the Constitutional right of liberty while he remains in office.

Among the afternoon talks, Dennis Prager shared his affinity for American values and denounced those in society and the media who are perpetual liars. The co-founder of  Prager University  concluded, “Lying is part of Leftism. Not liberalism. Not conservatism. It is instrumental to Leftism.”

Award-winning broadcaster and  author , Todd Starnes, described the story of a young  Roy Costner  taking a stand against those who opposed to prayer at public school events. Starnes believes Costner’s story should serve as a lesson to all Christians. “We’ve got to take a stand. We cannot bow down. So, consider this your call to arms. Happy warriors, we are tasked with a defending a noble cause and a noble faith,” despite the intolerance and attacks from the Left.

Saturday morning, AFA’s general counsel, Abraham Hamilton III, took an opportunity to shed light on presidential candidate Robert "Beto" O’Rourke’s recent rhetoric about  rescinding the tax-exempt status  of churches because of their view on Biblical marriage. Hamilton used the opportunity to note an important point that applies to all of this year’s Democratic party candidates.

While O’Rourke may have shared his thoughts publicly, Hamilton points out, “Everybody who is vying for the presidency in that party agrees with [O’Rourke’s support of same-sex marriage].

Among a wealth of other speakers through the day, Brigitte Gabriel took the stage to encourage the American people. “We are fighting for the soul of our country,” said the founder and president of ACT for America. She encouraged listeners to image a second term without President Trump, and to use the thought to “light a fire.” Gabriel spoke about the sacrifices the Founding Fathers made for America freedom. Then, she said, “the least we can do is protect and preserve those freedoms they created for generations to come. We owe it to them, and we owe it to our children.”

On Saturday evening, Pastor Andrew Brunson will be presented the Cost of Discipleship Award at the Faith, Family, and Freedom Gala dinner. One year ago, Pastor Brunson was  released from captivity  in Turkey. This evening, he will be honored by many, including President Donald Trump and Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback, for his great sacrifice.

Gary Bauer, president of  American Values  and a long-time co-sponsor of the Values Voter Summit, spoke on Friday afternoon. He tells OneNewsNow, “[VVS] is the year's premier event for social conservatives.”

When you have the President speaking at a Gala Dinner to honor a pastor, Bauer asserts, “[his presence certainly] speaks volumes about the Summit and its focus on faith, family and freedom.”

In an additional statement to OneNewsNow, Gorka describes VVS "as a crucial event for all those who have had enough of the Left's radicalization and who believe in the immutable founding principles of our Republic."

"Today's Democrats hate America, want open borders, are against the First and Second Amendment, and promote a chilling culture of death in which third trimester abortion is not enough and even infanticide is justifiable....  https://onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2019/10/12/the-values-voter-summit-continues-to-preserve-faith-family-and-freedom-in-2019

Politician charged in human trafficking adoption scheme

1000.jpeg

An Arizona elected official ran a human smuggling scheme that promised pregnant women thousands of dollars to lure them from a Pacific Island nation to the U.S., where they were crammed into houses to wait to give birth, sometimes with little to no prenatal care, prosecutors allege.

Paul Petersen, the Republican assessor of Arizona’s most populous county, was charged in Utah, Arizona and Arkansas with counts including human smuggling, sale of a child, fraud, forgery and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The charges span about three years and involve some 75 adoptions. Investigators also found eight pregnant women from the Marshall Islands in raids of his properties outside Phoenix, and several more are waiting to give birth in Utah, authorities said.
