Some folks look up to me with admiration, and other humans don't like me at all, and say some very hurtful, harsh things about me. But if a person just depended on what other PEOPLE/ HUMANS thought or said, he/ she would be a nervous wreck and perhaps very paranoid, afraid to make any move in life ! Well, now days, with the infusion of so many different 'schools of thought,' as anything goes, with NO 'Moral Compass,' we see how the world has grown to be so dang immoral, corrupt, violent, and in disorder, with more wars, conflicts and hatred ! ! Sorry, but it sure didn't seem that way 60 years ago --- when most folks had more manners, respect and dignity ! Sorry, again, but I sometimes wish we still lived back in those, 'good old days !' Albeit, life was physically harder to make a living and we didn't have all the modern conveniences, for sure. But we were more HAPPY !!! And one of my favorite day dreams is: Going back in time with the money, investments, and knowledge/ education I have right now ! Power and Control !
The flip side is that, today --- we KNOW for a fact that we stand at the entrance of the close proximity of our Lord, Jesus, coming back soon, if not sooner, to take us/ we Believers, up, up and away, to that "Safe Place" --- while those 'Left Behind' will experience the worst thing the world has ever seen or imagined ! ! And dear Friends, this is NO EXAGGERATION. Because I don't even need to exaggerate one little bit to be 100% true in this regard. Just read, Matthew, Chapter 24.
If it only took ONE known event --- a "Planet killer" to wipe out mankind, that would be ONE thing. But now, we sit at the cusp of a multitude of maybe 6 potential events that could destroy us --- and that is only ONE reason why Almighty God MUST take quick action to intervene, soon. And, let's just say that there is a biblical, composite "Sign" with about maybe 34 facets that must be fulfilled as bible prophecy, and all 34 are now proven to be fulfilled, already ? You see, that is how logical, level headed, bible smart Christians know that we are near.
Well, this is proof enough for a normal guy like me to shape and build the remainder of MY life in a certain way --- taking a certain path in my walk of life, at age 67. Sure, there are certain things that I wish for, long for, have certain desires, wants and needs.... But I also have my priorities in life, love for God and His ways, commandments, and common sense enough to weigh the outcome of certain words and actions -- have consequences, so I hope to be wise enough to pick and choose the right path to walk. I only WISH that I could have picked more wise choices in my past, instead of making a silly fool out of myself....dang it ! Seems like I have a steady diet of Crow.... lol.
As some of you good people know from reading my humble posts, I believe that my writings are not just therapeutic for me, as one VA doctor put it.... but I am aiming to help other people with my pen and computer, along with the InterNet, as much as I am able. I always wanted to write a few books in my life, and started one, back in 1995, only to stop at 250 pages, with a hired "Proof Reader...$$$" --- but now there doesn't even seem to be much time left for that ! And I am rather blessed by the Lord, right now, so I am trying to help a few others currently, perhaps in a small way. So, hindsight is usually, 20/ 20, and I hope God still uses me to help others in the right way, spiritually, etc. Maybe I am gambling with some of my 'Investments,' but maybe that is now my form of "excitement,"--LOL ! Woo- Hoo !
Ha! Actually, the only thing that is guaranteed, is the Love of God, and it stands, Forever ! And just ponder this small note for a second.... anything of value that I leave behind will be spent foolishly, the way I see it, and all my super hard years of back breaking work, at places like Chrysler, and other places where I got hurt too many times working for 'the man' [or men], wh9o used my, 'blood, sweat and tears,' to enrich himself and put all his kids thru college, etc. And I am not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, but what have my own kid's EVER really done for me ? Ha! They rarely ever even call me on the phone --- just too dang busy....lol, not ! The hurtful games we all play in life, the way some of our children even "USE" their own kids as barter to get what they want !! Yes, they even PREVENT my grandkids from communicating / visiting with me ! Now, I do not have a sour attitude, and am loathe to hurt anyone, but some things just need to be said and aired, before I die, and with my own infirmities, and family history, that could even come tonight as I sleep in bed. Sorry, if my words cut anyone...
Jesus is Lord.
Tom's Tomahawk Target ! I teach people how to throw them and knives, accurately !
January 27th, 2017On Friday, January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the United States.
His inauguration was the culmination of a meteoric rise to power that remains largely a mystery to the political class. The demise of his political odyssey was predicted time and again by the mainstream media.
The end of his campaign for the presidency was confidently announced by pundit after pundit, and on many occasions. To that, Mr. Trump could have echoed Mark Twain, who, in 1897 answered an inquiry about his failing health. He wrote simply, "The report of my death was an exaggeration!"
The reports of Trump's political death were not only an exaggeration, they were dead wrong! (Pun intended.)
To the horror of the political establishment (both parties), the mainstream media, the federal employee unions, the many George Soros organizations, the pro-illegal immigrationists, the mayors of American sanctuary cities, the pro-abortionists, the LGBTTTQQIAA movement, the pro-TTPers, the radical Islamic terrorists (and their lobbyist supporters), the anti-American-energy-independence faction, virtually all those in academia everywhere, the race-baiters and their Congressional toadies, the American Association of Corrupt Lobbyists (if there wasn't such an organization, maybe there is one now!), the "safe-space" children's group otherwise known as American colleges and universities, Mikey Weinstein and his Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the anti-God types, the European Union, the Iranians, the Palestinians, migrant men and jihadi infiltrators from the Middle East, the Islamic State, the Chinese Communists, all globalists everywhere, the Clintons, those who did the Clintons' bidding while in high public office, the Obamas, those who did the Obamas' bidding while in high public office, and many others too numerous to mention, Trump actually won!
And now, Hillary Clinton is not going to be allowed to finish the "transformation" of America that Barack Obama began in 2008.
But if you think Trump's election ended the war to destroy America, think again. In Washington, these wars don't end with the winning of a single battle or a single election! Unfortunately, those on the Left are often "lifers!" They don't go away or surrender their destructive political aspirations. They're in it for life ("death" is probably more accurate). And they will be back tomorrow, or the next day, or the next, or the next.... Until they get their way.
And the Left carries grudges. Consider Richard Nixon. The Left and the mainstream media hated Richard Nixon. And it was personal. To be fair, even many Republicans didn't personally like Mr. Nixon. But his history of strong opposition to Communism raised the hackles of the entertainment industry, the media, the Democrats, and many of those in the liberal movement.
It's true that he was a secretive and rather paranoid person, but so were his two immediate predecessors. But the Left should have loved Richard Nixon if policy accomplishments were actually important to them.
Richard Nixon ended the military draft; established relations with China; introduced detente with the Soviet Union; negotiated the SALT agreements to begin nuclear armament reduction; advocated for universal health care; integrated more schools than all other Presidents combined; established the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); freed American currency from the gold standard; created the "petrodollar" that made the American dollar preeminent globally; and ended Lyndon Johnson's Viet Nam war.
The American public approved. In 1972, Richard Nixon won an unprecedented landslide re-election. He took 520 electoral votes to George McGovern's 17.
But that didn't matter. The political establishment didn't like Richard Nixon. So they ferreted out crimes that Nixon certainly committed, but that had been tolerated in certain other Presidents. And they used them to drive him in humiliation from the White House in 1974.
But be warned. Compared to what President Trump is facing, Richard Nixon had it easy.
There were calls for Trump's impeachment from some members of Congress before he had even been inaugurated. The Left and the mainstream media have already embarked on campaigns to delegitimize his presidency. Former Attorney-General Eric Holder has been hired by some states to fight Trump's attempts to enforce current federal laws regarding immigration. Former President Obama decided to remain in Washington, D.C., so he can be readily available to the media and the establishment to fight Trump's every action.
George Soros is doubling down on his anti-American activities. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Communist China offered its leadership and services to the world to continue Obama's (and other globalists') efforts to transform the world into a single global market and government.
And now that the Obama administration has facilitated China's efforts to gain control of Hollywood's six major studios, we can expect a steady stream of propaganda films extolling the virtues of global governance, Communist Chinese values, and the religion of humanism (with no shortage of Satanic influences thrown into the mix).
If you prayed for the President before the election, don't stop now! The battle for America has just begun in earnest!
By the way, I'm sure you've been hearing all the talk about how President Trump is not a legitimate President because the Russians helped him win the election. On this week's program, I'm going to tell you the real story about what happened with all the "leaked" emails of Secretary Clinton, John Podesta, and the DNC. Suffice it to say that you can't believe everything you've been told by the media or the administration.
Also, you've been hearing howls from the Left about how Mr. Trump is not really the President because he didn't win the "popular vote." Once again, it's irrelevant and the media, as well as the political establishment, know it.
Consider this: In Super Bowl 50, just one year ago, the Carolina Panthers had 315 yards of total offense. The Denver Broncos has only 194 yards of total offense. So Carolina won. Right?
The rules of American football don't say that you win by gaining the most yards. You win by scoring the most points.
"Total offense" is just an interesting statistic.
In the United States, the Constitution is designed to keep the individual states relevant and with some power in the face of a strong federal government and a population concentrated in a few metropolitan areas. One of the ways the founders did that was by putting states at the center of the process for electing Presidents.
Both sides tried to win as many "electoral votes" as possible by winning the states with the most electors at stake. Neither Trump nor Clinton sought to win the national popular vote. It would be nice to win the popular vote, but it is secondary. It's the "electors" who elect the President.
I'm sure the Broncos would have enjoyed having more total yards of offense than the Panthers in last year's Super Bowl, but it wasn't required to win the game and the championship.
Had the rules of the election been different, the strategies employed by both sides would have been different, too. And we have no way of knowing who would have won.
Speculate all you want, but don't call the winner "illegitimate" because you don't like the rules or the outcome. Either we have a Constitution or we don't. Either that Constitution means something or it doesn't.
If we cease to be a nation of laws, we become a nation where only the loud and violent have a voice.
This week, I will also take a look back at the last eight years. It is stunning to see how the world -- and America -- has changed and how much closer we are to the prophetic picture of the "last days" painted in scripture.
And, I will tell you part of the story of "How Hal Met Grace." Maybe you will relate to my own experiences in my search for God.
