    There is an old saying “ why get off a winning horse “. Sorry President Trump for the analogy, but the meaning certainly applies to our current Leader of our Nation. This current situation should have all of us at a complete misunderstanding why this Party of Hate is on such an extreme radical path of destruction. If they were true Patriots, true Americans, they should be happy our Country is now doing so very well. I have to believe that this Hate, this extreme bias mostly comes from the top positions in the Party. And these people at the top are putting the pressure on the rest of this Party. Who in their right mind would wish our Country to go backwards or fail, but today we are seeing this ? These top elected officials want to rule by greed and power and will settle for nothing less. The idea of two parties or to put it more plainly, two heads are better than one no longer carries any value in our Government. As this may play out, many of these elected Dems should also be very careful. They are part of this pack being forced to take this path of no return. If they think they are really part of this movement, they better guess again. Yes, they are followers, but when push comes to shove, this top dog pack will rule the rest of these followers which may be left out in the cold. If you took the Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Schiff, Feinstein, Waters and perhaps two or three more, this movement towards destruction would fall apart. This is a follow the leader of these turncoats who can’t have their way. However, because of these few, they are willing to take charge, force the rest of their party to follow the path. Trump has stood tall in this fight not only towards those who constantly work on trying to have him removed, but has been an endless leader moving our nation forward down the road to prosperity. Trump will take our country to many more highs in these next coming 5 years”.

    Can a Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply: Theologically – no, because his allegiance is to Allah. Religiously – no, because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Qur’an 2:256). Scripturally – no, because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Qur’an.
    Geographically – no, because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day. Socially – no, because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. Politically – no, because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders) who teach the annihilation of Israel and the destruction of America, the great Satan.
    Domestically – no, because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat his wife when she disobeys him (Qur’an 4:34). Intellectually – no, because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
    Philosophically – no, because Islam, Muhammad, and the Qur’an does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist! Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.Spiritually – no, because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ we are referring to the Christian’s God and not Allah. Therefore, after much study and deliberation, perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans/Canadians; they cannot and will not integrate into the great melting pot of America. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand. Muslims everywhere have said they will destroy us from within.

    Wind turbines and solar panels are not as clean as your alarmist friends might think. Building these so-called “renewable” machines requires the use of non-renewable energy. Most are built in Asia using electricity predominately from coal (without America’s advanced pollution control technology), and rare earth elements generate literal tons of waste through the mining process. Wind turbines also require huge amounts of plastic, which is made exclusively from fossil fuels — 45 tons per turbine. After a solar panel or wind turbine has worn out, it must be decommissioned, which generates massive amounts of waste. If the world adopts the goals of the Paris Climate Accords, solar panel disposal alone will double the world’s current plastic waste.

    Wind and solar produce power intermittently — the wind doesn’t always blow and the sun doesn’t always shine. Many renewable advocates point out that in order to have stable power supplied around the clock, we would simply need to store excess energy in batteries so that the power could be used later when demand is higher. This is correct in theory, but battery technology currently lags far behind what is needed. For example, in order to power New York City for just one hour, the entire world’s battery storage capacity would be completely drained. While America is expected to double its battery storage capacity in the next few years, battery technology is still generations at least away from the scale and efficiency required to make the switch to renewables.

    It would take 27 acres of solar panels and 115 acres of wind turbines to replace a single acre-sized natural gas power plant. To put this in perspective, powering the State of Texas alone using just wind and solar would require over 6 million acres — that’s 14 times the size of Houston, Texas’ largest city. The environmental impact of this massive land clearing and wildlife habitat destruction cannot be overstated.

    “‘Renewable energy’ is a misnomer,” as energy expert Mark P. Mills puts it. Each individual wind turbine requires 900 tons of steel, 2,500 tons of concrete, and 45 tons of plastic. A single electric car battery requires 250 tons of material to be mined, moved, and processed — ten times the material required to produce the same number of miles driven in a gas-powered car. Wind turbines and solar panels also require large quantities of rare earth elements, most of which come from China, where lax mining procedures generate toxic radioactive waste that significantly harm the environment and human life. Between mining, manufacturing, and shipping materials to their end destination, wind turbines and solar panels simply can’t be made without fossil fuels.

    More than 80% of our energy comes from fossil fuels: oil, natural gas, and coal, in that order. Wind and solar combined provide just 8% of our electricity and 3% of our total energy — even after tens of billions in taxpayer subsidies — because those resources cannot reach the scale required to become our primary energy sources.

    *****There was so much hope in January 2009 when Barack Obama took office. Here was the first black president of the United States, promising to be a leader for all Americans, to halt the rise of the oceans and to be the most transparent administration ever. Even black Americans were saying the Civil War was finally over. Unfortunately for America, it didn’t turn out that way. As more and more evidence is revealed daily on the evening news, it is now very clear the Obama administration was the most corrupt presidency in the history of the republic. As Mr. Obama’s favorite, President Abraham Lincoln, warned us, the most dangerous threats can come from domestic enemies. First of all, that bit about being a leader for all Americans, color-blind if you will, was a tall tale. Mr. Obama never missed an opportunity to sow racial divide. During his term in the Oval Office, racial relations literally went off the cliff. Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle promoted the false narrative that white America was literally guilty of hunting down blacks with glee. They whipped up resentment in minority communities against the police, even though a Harvard study found that blacks are no more likely to be killed by police than whites. But the racial divisions, as painful and heartbreaking as they are, were not the worst of it……

    **ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States ! AND Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured! Islam considers insurance to be “gambling,” “risk-taking,” and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this. How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivable, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health insurance needs paid for by the de-facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying taxes to subsidize Muslims. This is Dhimmitude.

    *Wow. After Pelosi orders articles of impeachment to be drafted, approval for Trump hit 52%. Obama’s at this date was 46% – and no one even suggested his impeachment. Hmm… I wonder what Pelosi and Congress’ approval is? It’s in the toilet, nowhere near close to the president’s. Even after months (and years) of negative news coverage, Americans are still backing Donald Trump.

    How can this be? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that, through this impeachment, America has been on Trump’s side. Not Pelosi’s. Americans have seen how hard Trump has worked to defend this country. He has helped turn around the economy in ways nobody would have expected. He has brought back jobs, slashed taxes, and helped increase wages. That’s not to mention his success at the border—and his defeat of ISIS. He’s even negotiated ground-breaking progress with NATO–something critics said he would never be able to do. What has Pelosi done over the last year? Hmm… let me check… oh right! She backed an impeachment inquiry based on a flimsy phone call!

      Those numbers are 52% of registered Republicans polled, which is about 3% of the population of the USA. The Obama number quoted was a poll of the entire population of the USA. Apples and oranges.

            “His (Trumps’s) remarks came after Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron Desantis said the Saudis “owe a debt” following the shooting.”
            “The government of Saudi Arabia needs to make things better for these victims,” DeSantis, who said he had spoken to President Trump about the shooting, told reporters during a news conference Friday afternoon. “They are going to owe a debt here given that this is one of their individuals.”

            And Trump’s response is they are sorry and angry. If that isn’t brushing someone off(a Republican no less), what is?

      According to most preliminary reports, the IG report will find some things wrong with the FBI’s investigation but will confirm that they had every reason to investigate Carter Page and the Trump campaign. Trump, of course, will change his tune about that report and will then say that the Durham-Barr report is the one people should listen to. Wonder what he will say if that also tells the truth? Of course, he added Barr to the investigation to make sure that wouldn’t happen and Barr will do whatever he can to make Trump look innocent.

    • Because science tells us that something cannot come from nothing, the existence of this universe is, by definition, “supernatural.”
    • Because we cannot escape the paradox of self-creation (i.e., that for something to come from nothing, something had to have created itself), we must accept self-creation as necessary to the existence of this universe, and indeed, to existence itself.
    • Because self-creation cannot have occurred randomly, or accidentally, it must have been intentional.
    • Because intention is not enough to cause self-creation, whatever caused the universe to come into existence must also have had power and knowledge.
    • The only way to account for all of the above, therefore, is if this universe is the product of something with will, power, and knowledge, that exists in a separate universe, that is subject to its own scientific principles, different from our own.

    The baby’s heart is beating before birth and the Mother is the baby’s life support! So maybe Pete needs a biology lesson in reproduction before he tries to take on the country with people living outside the womb!
