(LIFE SITE) Trump called Christmas a “Holy season” where Christians celebrate the “birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” Unlike Obama, Trump managed to mention in one sentence in his first address the words “Savior” and “Jesus” and “Christ.”
Trump goes on, praising Jesus who “forever changed the course of human history.”
Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history. There’s hardly an
aspect of our lives today that his life has not touched: art, music, culture, law, and our respect for the sacred dignity of every person everywhere in the world.
Each and every year at Christmas time we recognize that the real spirit of Christmas is not what we have, it's about who we are – each one of us is a child of God.
That is the true source of joy this time of the year.
That is what makes every Christmas ‘merry.’
Trump hits a key truth of the Christian faith here, namely that it’s because of the birth of Jesus Christ that people can become adopted sons and daughters of God, which, indeed, is the source of not only Christmas joy, but any form of Christian joy.
Trump’s remarks here suggest that he accurately understands what Christmas is essentially about and why Christians celebrate it. Jesus is not simply the great moral leader, as Obama portrayed him to be, but a “Savior” who connects mankind with God and who has “forever” changed the world.
In his 2018 address, Trump returned to his theme of Christmas being a “sacred season” because of the birth of “Jesus Christ.” This year, he quoted a large passage of Scripture, something Obama never did in his entire eight years of addresses at this same event.
It is worth quoting Trump at length.
For Christians all across our nation, around the world, this is a sacred season that begins 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ was born.
An angel declared to the shepherds tending their flocks, “Behold, I bring you good tidings, great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is a born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” (Applause.)
There in Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph held in their hands the Son of God; the light of the world; and, through Him, the promise of eternal salvation.
Trump makes it clear that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus Christ as the “son of God” who is the “light of the world” and who brings “eternal salvation.” Again, this is essentially what Christmas is all about.
So, how does Obama’s treatment of Christmas in his tree lighting addresses compare with Trump’s? For Obama, Christmas is about honoring a great moral “leader” who brings a message of peace and love that everyone can understand and should imitate.
For Trump, Christmas is about celebrating the “savior” of the world who offers “eternal salvation” and who reveals to men and women their true dignity, namely, that each is called to be a “child of God.”
Whose message is more Christian and thus more on target regarding what Christmas is all about? In this case, clearly Trump is the winner.
Has Trump brought back the true meaning of Christmas to America as witnessed in his Christmas tree lighting addresses? The answer is a definitive “yes.”
(Pat Buchanan) George H.W. Bush was America’s closer.
Called in to pitch the final innings of the Cold War, Bush 41 presided masterfully over the fall of the Berlin Wall, the unification of Germany, the liberation of 100 million Eastern Europeans and the dissolution of the Soviet Union into 15 independent nations.
History’s assignment complete, Bush 41 was retired.
And what happened to the world he left behind?
What became of that world where America was the lone superpower, which 41 believed should lead in creation of the New World Order?
The Russia that back then was led by Boris Yeltsin, a man desperate to be our friend and ally, is now ruled by an autocratic nationalist.
Was not Vladimir Putin an inevitable reaction to our treating Russia like an untrustworthy and dangerous recidivist, by our expansion of NATO into the Balkans, the eastern Baltic and the Black Sea — the entire front porch of Mother Russia?
Did the America that in her early decades declared the Monroe Doctrine believe a great nation like Russia would forever indulge the presence of a hostile alliance on her doorstep led by a distant superpower?...
Since George H.W. Bush left the White House, the U.S. has incurred 12 trillion dollars in trade deficits, lost scores of thousands of manufacturing plants and 5 million manufacturing jobs. Our economic independence is ancient history.
After 41 left, the Republican Party supported an immigration policy that brought tens of millions, mostly unskilled and poor, half of them illegal, into the country. Result: The Nixon-Reagan coalition that delivered two 49-state landslides in the ’70s and ’80s is history, and the Republican nominee has lost the popular vote in six of the last seven presidential elections.
Due to rebellion against God, naive belief in the Idea of Progress, and support for big government policies, the globalist establishment of liberal elites seeks to gradually but steadily do away with sovereignty and merge the world into a single unified political organization. In the process, they and the organizations they affiliate with either attack the notion of sovereignty or redefine it for their own purposes.
Contrary to the claims of some naive or ill-intentioned critics, the War on Sovereignty is not some "conspiracy theory" that its promoters are malevolently plotting in secret as a short-term project. In reality, liberals and globalists see it as a benign and long-term goal openly grounded upon one of the basic philosophical views accepted in contemporary mainstream society.
The founding fathers of the United States cared deeply about preserving national sovereignty, since a sovereign U.S. government would serve the American people alone and protect their unalienable rights, and let them govern themselves. In fact, they chose to declare independence because Britain was not respecting their right to self-government. In his farewell address in September 1796, George Washington warned his fellow Americans against becoming entangled in international treaties and alliances, as he knew it would end American sovereignty:
“...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils...
As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.
The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.
Our detached and distant situation invites and enables us to pursue a different course. If we remain one people under an efficient government. the period is not far off when we may defy material injury from external annoyance; when we may take such an attitude as will cause the neutrality we may at any time resolve upon to be scrupulously respected; when belligerent nations, under the impossibility of making acquisitions upon us, will not lightly hazard the giving us provocation; when we may choose peace or war, as our interest, guided by justice, shall counsel.
Why forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation? Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground? Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor or caprice?
(The Federalist) For centuries, the politics of Western nations have been characterized by a struggle between two antithetical visions of world order: an order of free and independent nations, each pursuing the political good in accordance with its own traditions and understanding; and an order of peoples united under a single regime of law, promulgated and maintained by a single supranational authority.
In recent generations, the first vision has been represented by nations such as India, Israel, Japan, Norway, South Korea, Switzerland—and of course by Britain, in the wake of its turn toward independence. The second vision is held by much of the leadership of the European Union, which reaffirmed its commitment to the concept of an “ever closer union” of peoples in the Treaty of Maastricht in 1992, and has proceeded since then to introduce EU laws and currency into most member nations, as well as requiring the free movement of populations among most member states.
The United States, committed from its founding to the ideal of an independent national state, was for the most part able to maintain this character until the Second World War. But in the face of competition with the Soviet Union, and especially after the end of the Cold War, it has deviated from this model of national independence and has increasingly sought the establishment of a worldwide regime of law that would be enforced upon all nations by means of American power.
Watch: Donald Trump Is Anti-Global Government
The conflict between these two visions of the best political order is as old as the West itself. The idea that the political order should be based on independent nations was an important feature of ancient Israelite thought as reflected in the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament). And although Western civilization, for most of its history, has been dominated by dreams of universal empire, the presence of the Bible at the heart of this civilization has ensured that the idea of the self-determining, independent nation would be revived time and again.
Why is the Bible so concerned with the independence of nations?
The only thing he would be guilty of is trying to Make America Great Again!
WATCH: Trump Delivers Deadly Wound to The Beast
But there is plenty of evidence that Obama, Hillary, Eric Holder, and the rest of the Deep State actors have committed treason against America. Every act they’ve done is against America. Nothing they’ve done was for the benefit of America. They are Globalists “First” and they’ve proven that their loyalty is to a Global Government and not to America or her Constitution. President Trump was right when he ‘retweeted’ the tweet below. When are the trials for treason against America going to begin? American Patriots want to see justice!
Is President Trump sending the Deep State a warning? Does he now have access to all of the dirt on them? We’ll see. I pray that he does. God is in control.

(WND) Two recent court cases remind us of the power of symbols, both inspirational and commercial. Take, for instance, the magnificent rainbow. Its celebration overtones convey simple joy, innocence and purity of heart.
But the sweet rainbow image has been violated, raped by the deluded and fraudulent, and it now serves too often as a garish signpost for slavery to grave homosexual sin. It’s clear God did not intend for the rainbow to represent rebellion, iniquity and division. So how did this precious symbol become the banner, with few objections, for human depravity, lust, defiance and heresy? Rainbow flags are flown in America from some government buildings, at some of our embassies, and these colors on several occasions even lit up our White House (under the former regime, thank God). From shameful pride parades to hats, T-shirts, wristbands and buttons sold at Target or Walmart, sexual deviance is being colorfully and arrogantly proclaimed from America’s rooftops.
We can all agree that some logos and trademarks carry enormous meaning. The mightiest logo of all time is the cross, where Christ shed His blood for the world’s sin and God transformed the tool of torturous execution – what Satan intended for destruction and permanent humiliation –into eternal hope for all who would believe in Jesus.

Contending For The Faith
Most Pastors tip toe around saying this at voting time but they know it to be true, or at least they had better know it to be true or they have no business calling themselves a 'Pastor". THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS THE PARTY OF EVIL. Every major policy they promote goes against God's moral laws and standards - Socialism, Sexual Perversion, Gender Confusion, High Taxation, Anti-Man, Murdering The Unborn, and on the list goes. There is no wiggle room, no question, no debate.
IF YOU VOTE DEMOCRAT you vote for candidates who are working against God and therefore you are against God.
If the Democrats lived during the days of King David they would be called the Philistines. That's because the Democrat Party policies are nothing more than the revival of demonic paganism. Pagans throughout history have been well known for their sexual perversions and child sacrifice just like the Democrats. The only difference is the Democrats call it LGBTQ friendly and a woman's right to choose. But they are still the same old lies coming from the same old pits of hell.
It's time the church stops being so wimpy and politically correct. Did King David tip toe around calling out Goliath for what he was? I don't think so. When all the rest of Israel were too afraid to confront him, David told it like it was when he said:
"Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God? (1 Samuel 17:26)
"And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field." (1 Samuel 17:44)
"Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the LORD deliver you into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee…" (1 Samuel 17:46)
Boy, don't you wish more Pastors talked like David? I do. At least we have a President who tells it like it is.

(WND) The Democrat Party is evil. They are worse today than ever before – worse than during slavery, Jim Crow, lynch mobs, or the heyday of the KKK.
Most people don’t realize we are in a spiritual battle of right versus wrong, good versus evil. There are people of all cultures, male and female, on the side of good. And there are men and women of all races, all cultures, on the side of evil…
The rise of a good man in President Trump has shaken Democrats’ hold on millions of blacks, Hispanics and young people. Because Donald Trump tells the truth with no fear – and does not back down – the people have an opportunity to see where he’s coming from and contrast it with the evil coming out of his opponents. For generations, blacks in their fallen state believed the lies of “racism” that liberals fed them. President Trump has helped many people see through the illusion of “racism” – they can see he’s a genuine leader with America’s best interests at heart.
As thousands of illegal aliens, who don’t have our values, continue their efforts to invade our country, President Trump stands as the sole voice for sanity. The liberal media endlessly campaign in favor of entitled foreigners while they demonize Americans who oppose the madness. Blacks and others have watched this in horror, and changed their mind about voting for Democrats. Blacks have been forced out of their communities by Hispanic immigrants and illegals, and Democrats have done nothing to help.
Trump called for an end to the unjust “birthright citizenship” policy, a perversion of the 14th Amendment and a scam on black descendants of American slaves. Democrats and RINO Republicans (including Paul Ryan) have allowed illegal aliens and greedy visitors to come here to drop their “anchor babies” in our country. In doing this, they create new Democratic or socialist voters out of selfish foreigners with no allegiance to America, morality or freedom.

This morning President Trump wrote on Twitter that "Our military is being mobilized at the Southern Border. Many more troops coming. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!"
Our military is being mobilized at the Southern Border. Many more troops coming. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2018
Say what you want about President Trump's past sinful lifestyle, what he is standing for here, along with many other things, is more in line with the Bible than any other President in my lifetime. In fact, it's even more in line with the Bible than what's preached in many of our churches! You see, he is right. National borders are a sacred thing and this Caravan of invaders cares nothing for the sacredness of our border - the border of a nation whose motto is "One Nation Under God". If someone can't respect our country enough to come here legally they certainly cannot be trusted to love and respect our country as a citizen.
WATCH: TRUMP ACTIVATES MILITARY, SAYS OUR BORDER IS SACRED
Our borders are meant to be sacred "landmarks" that protect our nation from invaders and from those who wish to destroy our culture and way of life. As it is written:
"Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set." -Proverbs 22:28
And the Bible also says:
"Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour's landmark. And all the people shall say, Amen." -Deuteronomy 22:17
In other words, if your Pastor is telling you that we should let this Caravan of people in who care nothing about entering into our country lawfully, then he is a cursed man and a terrible shepherd. A good shepherd would care for his own sheep. And if his congregation say, "Amen" and agree with him, then they are cursed as well. My friends, Heavenly Jerusalem is our model. Do you think anyone will be allowed into that city illegally? Do you not think there will be a strict immigration policy to preserve the culture of God's Kingdom? There certainly is one. Check it out:
"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." -Revelation 22:14-15
You see, Heavenly Jerusalem is a welcoming city. But it does have a wall and it must be entered legally through the gates, and potential citizens must assimilate into the culture. I'd like to see someone try and climb the walls of that city and break in illegally. You better believe Almighty God would send forth his army, like President Trump, to defend its borders. In fact there will come a time, like is happening to America now, that Satan will try to overrun Heavenly Jerusalem with his army of invaders but will meet the fire and fury of God's wrath!
As it is written:
"And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them." -Revelation 20:9
By Pastor Ben Heath
Don't listen to the discouragers who believe there is no hope for America. Over the last 2 years we've had more victories than we've had in a long time. Praise God! Things are looking real good. But we still need to pray, vote, and expose darkness with the light. Now is not the time to be complacent or tricked by the Devil into thinking our votes don't matter. They do.
This is not just an election between two political parties anymore. Our elections are now about good vs. evil. We are in a spiritual war. The Republicans aren't perfect but the Democrats have been totally taken over by anti-Christian forces. Nearly every policy they stand for is in direct opposition to God and His Word. They should be called the Demoncrat Party now because that's who controls them - demons. We must stop them!
Do not let the blood of the innocent be on your hands. Get out and vote on November 6!
As it is written:
Ezekiel 33:5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Ezekiel 33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
Ezekiel 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Ezekiel 33:9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
(The Washington Times) A new video from the American Association of Evangelicals reveals how George Soros, through his many funding ventures, has been busily infiltrating the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party.
Truly, with the left, political wars know no bounds. Nothing’s sacred; not when it comes to the leftists’ drive to succeed.
Here’s what AAE put out in a press release: “Democrat ministers Rev. Jim Wallis and allies are now touring many states on ‘Vote Common Good’ buses to … split the evangelical vote before the mid-term elections. The AAE video features the newly released voice recording of [Jim] Wallis of Sojourners as he publicly denied that he was a recipient of Soros funding.”
But guess what?
His denial’s proven a bit — umm, wrong.
Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have not only flowed by the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Sojourners, AAE reported. But Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have been flowing to the Sojourners for some time...
Christians, beware. Patriots, be on guard.
Anyone can toss down a Christian card, even an atheist. But a clue to identify an anti-American enemy is the wolves always want Big Government, bigger government, a more powerful centralized system with weakened rights for the individual — and if it’s secret Soros dollars and Bible-thumping that gets them there, so be it.

(American Thinker) Ever since the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States, the American left has been – as my mother likes to put it – in "rare form." Such "form" these last two years has resulted in obscene fits by individual leftists and, yes, liberal mobs. Someone should ask these petulant, angry leftists – as did my mother when she encountered a tantrum (usually from a child): do you get a fever with those fits?
The answer is no, because – in spite of what many have implied as they've witnessed the rage, violence, and vulgarities so often employed by today's liberals – we're not dealing with sickness or mere lunacy, craziness, stupidity, or even the deranged. These characterizations are tempting – I've used them myself – and often accurate, but they fail to describe best what we are dealing with.
As Selwyn Duke alluded to recently, and others noted more directly years ago, modern liberalism – aided and abetted by the Democratic Party – is a dastardly tool of the enemy of all mankind. It's like a modern-day Mephistopheles luring hordes of Faustian fools with promises of worldly pleasure – especially sex – and perpetual provision from a paternalistic, godless nanny state. Such dark pursuits consume their personal lives and thus their politics as well. This is what results when one makes a god of government....
As Rod Dreher implies, it's no surprise that witchcraft attracts feminazis who wish to rebel against age-old family norms and anything remotely resembling Christianity. Thus, it's also little surprise that witchcraft fits so nicely under the tent of modern liberalism.

Watch: Ezra 10 | America needs to annul its unlawful marriage with pagan 'leftists' ideologies
Liberals don't eat up their own unless they are making a grand sacrifice to appease their pagan gods. There must be some other motive other than "just doing the right thing".
Liberals never just do the right thing.
They've known about these predators for a long time and have done nothing about it. That's why I've been highly suspicious about the motive behind taking down liberal kings like Franken, Weinstein, and Lauer. My friends, I believe this is all about framing the narrative, the narrative that ALL White Men are pigs. If they can get the masses obsessed with this issue their hope is to use the momentum of the bloodthirsty mob to take down President Trump, Roy Moore, and others, with false accusations. This is mass mind control at its best.
The Activist Mommy agrees with me. Towards the end of her video clip above she says she believes this latest #MeToo campaign is part of a larger radical feminist plot by the modern day Jezebels to destroy manhood in America.
On Fox News last night, Jesse Watters suggested that there may be an anti-Trump “coup” going on.
Watters brought up the anti-Trump texts from Peter Strzok and another FBI agent, including the “insurance policy” wording, and concluded this is “smoking gun evidence” that agents investigating Trump believed it was their duty to protect the country from him:
“The investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign has been crooked from the jump. But the scary part is we may now have proof the investigation was weaponized to destroy his presidency for partisan political purposes and to disenfranchise millions of American voters. Now, if that’s true, we have a coup on our hands in America.”

The Obama administration used government agencies to wage a covert war on their political enemies. This is an all-out war.
We have a growing mountain of evidence to suggest the FBI was attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. We have evidence to suggest the FBI was protecting Hillary Clinton so she might be elected president.
There is no smoking gun just yet – but the evidence is staggering – it is simply staggering.
The danger the Trump Administration is facing from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators is mounting. There are signs many on his team pledged their allegiance to Hillary Clinton.
“We are at risk of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said on the House Floor. “And I would offer that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”
