The main media, which is controlled by irrational ideologues, must hate the flow of information coming from conservative radio and TV talk shows, including the Internet. In the past, the liberal/progressive/Marxist/socialist/communist media had total control to manipulate at leisure the indoctrination of people and could dupe viewers. They still have a massive influence, thanks to the dumbing down of the mind in State-controlled schools where critical thinking has been supplanted by irrational thinking. Sadly, the highly impressionable minds of our children and young people have devoured these half-truths and outright lies.
By now you know that Donald Trump is being slammed by the media, Democrats, some Republican presidential candidates and some European officials for a statement that has been totally misrepresented. No shock here. After all, that’s what the PC media does day in and day out.
In his daily briefing Josh Earnest, the White House Press Secretary, told reporters:
“The fact is that what Donald Trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as president, and for Republican candidates for president to stand by their pledge to support Mr. Trump, that in and of itself is disqualifying.”
Trump wrote in a statement:
“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.”
Those who have come “unhinged” by Trump’s comment have called him dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, and unconstitutional, but is he? Or, is it the other way around? By their ignorance they are also labeling two U.S. presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Jimmy Carter, with the same adjectives.
Carter invoked the Nationality Act of 1952 , which gave him the right to expel about 15,000 Iranians from the U.S. This took place during the Iranian hostage crisis. Iranians were banned from entering our country unless they opposed the regime or needed emergency medical attention. Does Carter sound like an uncompassionate president to you or as one that took our national security seriously to defend Americans in their homeland?
“Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly.”
Keep in mind that Iranian students became loud Anti-American protesters in the U.S.:
“Carter orders 50,000 Iranian students in US to report to immigration office with view to deporting those in violation of their visas. On 27 December 1979, US appeals court allows deportation of Iranian students found in violation.” You can read Daniel Greenfield’s article here.
In another article Greenfield wrote: FDR HALTED GERMAN, JAPANESE NATURALIZATION AFTER PEARL HARBOR. He goes into great detail about FDR’s Presidential Proclamation 2525. After the Pearl Harbor attack, the proclamation applied to the Japanese, 2526 to the Germans, 2527 to the Italians:
WHEREAS it is provided by Section 21 of Title 50 of the United States Code [11 F. C. A., tit. 50, § 21] as follows: “Whenever there is a declared war between the United States and any foreign nation or government, or any invasion or predatory incursion is perpetrated, attempted, or threatened against the territory of the United States by any foreign nation or government, and the President makes public proclamation of the event, all natives, citizens, denizens, or subjects of the hostile nation or government, being of the age of fourteen years and upward, who shall be within the United States and not actually naturalized, shall be liable to be apprehended, restrained, secured, and removed as alien enemies…”

Beware of the PC “experts” who manipulate the political establishment and pretend to “love” the Constitution by proclaiming that America is a compassionate nation, but they conveniently refuse to let you know about what FDR and Jimmy Carter did according to the law. Are they friends or foes of the American people?
In the meantime, Trump is using facts to support his statements and he is historically accurate and those who are waving the “compassionate” flag, that have called him dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, and unconstitutional, should take a hard look in the mirror and see who is dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, and unconstitutional.
What about Christians in America? What is their understanding regarding all the evil that is besetting the nation and the world? Do they really think this is the end of the world and that Jesus is going to bail them out?
The apostle Paul had this to say about Jesus’ work and expectation for and from His church, in Ephesians 5:26-27 (ESV):
“[T]hat he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”
Are we there yet? How would Jesus grade the condition of the church at this time in history? How would you grade the church? I’m not talking about your denominational preference, rather the church as a whole. Is Christ’s church full of splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, holy and without blemish? Please don’t fail by answering with the worn-out affirmation that this will only happen when God’s people are in heaven! That is not what Paul wrote to the believers in Ephesus; you must know that too. God’s people must fulfill Jesus and the Father’s expectations here and now. “…your kingdom come, you will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
In his intercessory prayer Jesus asked the Father: “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one” (John 17:15). Do you want to spin that like others do? I hope not! Two thousand years of Christian history should teach us a great deal about what Christianity has done right and what it has done that is wrong. We must pursue to be the people, and the church, Paul made reference to what Jesus wants.
We’ll do well to focus and study in depth the full meaning of God’s expectations of us. We will find that they are not different from the ones expected of the Jews of old, Matthew 5:13-16 (ESV):
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
We have no better example of how to glorify the Father and Jesus than His words expressed right before His arrest in John 17:4-5:
“I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.”
When we reject God’s truth, we are the dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, unconstitutional, and most importantly, unbiblical. How in our right mind can we expect to fix America and the world’s deep-rooted problems of evil with a mindset that is in error?
Christian America, the world is waiting for you to fulfill Christ’s call and the Puritan’s vision for this land that was established before they sailed, when they heard the words of their leader, John Winthrop:
“…. we must consider that we shall be as a City upon a Hill, the eyes of all people are upon us.”
Let us not lose sight of the true American Dream that the forefathers had of a perfect society that would reflect God’s values and not those of the “Politically Correct” crowd, who neither love nor respect God.
