There are so many errors in what you have said not grammatical errors but factual errors.
Christians are the most persecuted people in the world there heads are beheaded DAILY for there faith, they are raped DAILY for there faith, they are burnt alive DAILY for there faith and all manner of EVIL are done to them DAILY for there love for Jesus Christ, more than 90,000 christians were murdered for their faith in JESUS CHRIST in 2016.
They are persecuted for there faith and believes both in the USA and around the world, in schools, in the work place etc everywhere they go laws are passed against them and their believes(which are moral & right), they are penalized and in most cases forced to support or practice that which is wrong & EVIL, more than 500 million christians were prevented from practicing their faith in 2016.
All i have done is tell you the truth in love and with facts you can say it’s spamming, you can call my faith blind but my faith is more real to me than you are, it’s more precious than Gold or silver, it’s more satisfying than the sweetest beverage or the most delicious meal.
David would say ” o taste and see and you would know that the LORD is good, blessed is the man/woman who trusts in him(GOD)” (psalm 34: 8).
Jesus said “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that i will give him/her will never be thirsty again.
The water that i will give him or her will become in him or her a well of water springing up to eternal life.”( John 4:13-14)
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the Power of GOD for salvation to everyone who believes, for in it the Righteousness & Love of Gpd is revealed.
God has dedicated a day in which he would judge the world(humanity) in righteousness and on that day justice will be served.
The word of God (the bible) would say- Beloved do not overlook this one fact, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward all, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
I don’t decide what is wicked or evil, God has and His decision is Holy, Just, Righteous & final, my faith is not blind, the bible is not just a book or a good book it is the word of Almighty God.
I going to make one final response to uiuba d then that’s it. If you have to ask what it means to be Jewish, that tells me all I need to know
I don’t know where you get the gall to lecture me on what Christians have gone through. Talk about persecution! How about the Holocaust? You know, where Hitler implemented his final solution! The extermination of the Jews!
So don’t you dare lecture me about persecution! The world has never seen anything like it before or since. Estimates es of six million Jews killed!
My father got to see it up close and personal. He has to take photographs of the atrocities and interrogate Nazi prisoners of war. It was something he never forgot. Decades later when I was an adult, he told me about what he saw.
I am fed up with you ramming your faith down my throat and everyone else’s!
I have nothing more to say to you about religion or anything else!
Thanks Alison! You are right I’m not afraid to write to Anyone and give them an earful! Thank goodness there are millions doing the same — fighting to keep our rights’ and doing all we can to keep this a democracy with all it’s checks and balances in place. The executive branch is trying to change things to get his way and get away with lies, lies, lies and undermine the constitution.
It’s so important for people to stand up and make their voices heard now! So much is at stake!
Trump is trying to make the DOJ his personal arm of government. He is threatening the separation of powers that is the foundation of our government.
Trump is trying to destroy our democracy. He is using fear and hatred to divide the people. If he tries to get rid of Sessions so that he can appoint a yes person to then impeachment proceedings must begin!
But I think that the Democrats will have to win back control of the House before it will happen. Trump is getting nervous because Mueller is getting too close. If he starts looking into Trump’s tax returns and finances, then it’s game over! And Trump knows it!
We need to get this corrupt, lying, dangerous man out of the White House!
I meant to say that if Trump fires Sessions so that he can appoint a “yes” man to get rid of Mueller, then we must start impeachment proceedings!
Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice in firing Comey to stop the FBI investigation. He is threatening to continue to fire those who are investigating him. It’s getting too close for comfort with Trump.
Trump’s actions can only be interpreted as those of someone who is guilty, knows it and is trying desperately to keep the truth from coming out!
This country deserves better than a man who is a traitor to this country!
NNY I sympathise with what the Jews went through in WW2, my hubbies ancestors are Jewish, and i also have multi cultures in my family, religion and prejudice has caused more wars and conflict than you or i have had hot dinners, i just wish people would choose their own path or religion, and just let others do the same, without percequiting others that dont share the same beliefs ….
The persecution of the Jews started with the death of Jesus Christ. They were blamed for it. Through the centuries they were persecuted endlessly and it took a long tine for the Pope to correct the record. It’s a terrible story. But it’s my heritage.
One of the more extraordinary stories about my father, was when he was in basic training in the Deep South. That was a whole other kind of prejudice and anti-semitism. There was one night when some other redneck soldiers got drunk and roudy. They started going off about how the Jews killed Christ. Then they said let’s go kill some Jews. My father heard them in his barracks and called out to them. He said – hey, I’m Jewish. Come here! So they went after him. When they got to him. My father was sitting up. When they looked down my father was pointing his gun at them! He said – you want to kill me? They got out of there and didn’t bother him again. That was my Daddy! He didn’t back down or take any crap.
I am going to just not talk about religion anymore here. I think people should allow others to be spiritual in any way they wish.
I will stick to politics, which can still be just as intense. You are fortunate to not live in this country right now. Trump is taking us backwards in so many ways and he is such an embarrassment. Also a very dangerous man who has zero understanding of the Constitution. He is taking us diwn the road to a Constitutional crisis. Our freedoms are at stake. We have to continue to protest in any way possible. We stopped the repeal of Obamacare and now we have to make sure that this man is held accountable for his crimes and illegal acts. He needs to be impeached.
Whatever you have in England is nowhere near a bad as Trump!
Yes pink in a yoga swing swirling around is awesome – it looks like fun. Well, I re-injured my arm last week end and now it’s in a cast and I can’t work for a month. Now I really did myself in. I’m on pain meds again, at home and it’s hard to type!

I am honestly fed up, tired of waking up every damn day, logging onto my favourite newspaper and being confronted, no, ASSAULTED, by yet another Trump drama front page headline. Day after day……….
Can someone please create a special paper just for Trump news? So they can park all the Trump drama in there? And leave the normal papers to cover normal news, for us normal people to read? I just want to wake up to normal disasters, please God! Not this…………..thing.
Trump this, Trump that, Trump, Trump, Trump……………begone with ya!
A lot of things were said by some of you a few days ago some were said out of maybe ignorance or willful ignorance, some were deceptive, hypocritical, wicked & false.
True Christianity is not a religion but a personal relationship with God, when I said Christians are they most persecuted people in the world I wasn’t implying that others do not suffer persecution, I was simply saying that Christians are the most persecuted and most times, if not all the time they are persecuted by EVIL men & women who have rejected the TRUTH and believed in a lie.
Kevin, you called that statement “ludacris”(ludicrous), it’s a shame because we live in a digital age and there has been no time in history were one can learn at the speed of light than now, when you search for the truth in the right place diligently, honestly & carefully you will find it.
Both religious and secular studies/findings have concluded and reported that Christianity is the most persecuted faith and this persecution didn’t start yesterday it started thousands of years ago & it’s still going on today, it’s not getting better but worse cos the hearts of evil men/women are only getting Colder.
When I say this, am not glad about it, this doesn’t bring joy to my heart , it breaks my heart and they hearts of true Christians knowing that tens of millions( of our brothers & sisters) have lost their lives in the past & tens of thousands( sometimes hundreds of thousands) are losing their lives yearly because they love & serve the Living God, they refuse to stop sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ(The words of eternal life) and they also refuse to renounce their faith even in the face of death.
Silence in the face of EVIL is itself EVIL, God will not hold us guitless, not to speak is to speak, not to act is to act.
You(Kevin) are not staying silent, you are attacking the truth by making stupid statements and that’s wicked & sad.
I guarantee you, if you search for the truth honestly you will find it.
If I post more than two links my comments will not go through, the are other links I didn’t post you can check them out.
The number of Christians martyred in 2016 is likely more than 90,000, however, because studies were not able to include data from China and India two countries with large Christian populations, but with âundergroundâ churches, so the numbers of persecuted and martyred Christians are hard to come by, much persecution takes place on a daily basis that never makes news.
You said “The persecution of the Jews started with the death of Jesus Christ”.
Nothing could be further from the truth than that DECEPTIVE statement, you suppress the truth in unrighteousness and you twist the facts to match your views, it’s not just deceptive, it’s blasphemous( whether you know this or not, what you are saying is that the word of God or God himself is lying).
You don’t have to be a student of history to know that before & after the death of Jesus Christ( Jesus also rose from the dead), he and his disciples & followers both Jews & gentiles were persecuted vigorously in the most inhumane manner by some jews, the romans and some gentiles who rejected the truth and worshipped the creation I instead of the creator, who is blessed forever.
The religious leaders of Israel at his(Jesus) time hated him and they demanded that he be crucified, the roman leaders & soldiers nailed him to a cross but the truth is this, despite their wicked hearts Jesus Christ laid down his life as a sacrifice for the sin of the world, he did not come to defend his life but to lay it down for the world.
Jesus would say “No one takes my life from me, but I lay it down willingly! I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment I have received from my Father ( John 10:18).
The Holy Spirit would reveal to the prophet Isaiah and he would say in Isaiah 53:6-12
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
I don’t think I will be exaggerating if I said that Christians have done more for Israel or the Jewish people than they(Christians) have received.
The prime minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu recognized the persecution that Christians face all over the world and he condemned the genocide of Christians in the middle east and around the world.
He(Netanyahu) said to the Christians in the USA & Africa “Israel and the Jewish people have no better friends in the world than Christians” he said there is none like them.
He also made this promise in Nazareth ” I promise you, we will support you and we will act harshly against anyone who will harass you”.
The German Chancellor Angela Merkel who I disagree with on some topics declared that Christianity or Christians are the most persecuted people in the world, some other leaders recognize this and are speaking out against this Evil.
There are many Christian organization that do wonderful works in Israel and around the world, their works are recognized in Israel and around the world and they( Christian organization) have been given awards of gratitude and appreciation for their amazing love.
Here are some of the Christian organizations supported by hundreds of ministries and by tens of millions of Christians-
CUFI(Christians united for Israel), C4Israel.org International Christian embassy Jerusalem, CBN(Christian broadcasting network), operation exodus USA, Bridges of peace, CFI( Christian friends of Israel) etc.
This Christian organizations didn’t start yesterday the have been around for decades the provide care packages to those in need in Israel, the provide protective gear to Israeli soldiers, the have built new homes for destitute holocaust survivors, the assist families who have lost loved ones on terror attacks, they have helped thousands of jews return to Israel who were fleeing persecution in the middle east, Europe etc, this Christian ministries/organizations have helped Israel disabled veterans & children with special needs in Israel, they also fight against the BDS(Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement that seeks to cripple Israel’s economy and end the international support for Israel this movement is funded and supported by people, organizations & countries that hate Israel and the Jewish people.
This ministries/organizations do more than I can write in Israel & around the world, some Christians even lose their lives in the process of doing this.
While they do all of this and more that I didn’t mention, more importantly most of them share the good news or the gospel of Jesus Christ which has the power to save a sinner.
8 For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man/woman should boast.(Ephesians 2:8-9)
26 For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized( this does not speak of water baptizing but the born again experience in Christ) into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
And if you be Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.(Galatians 3:26-29)
Adolf hitler and the nazi army murdered more than 10 million people, this demonic man and his foolish armies systematically murdered an estimated 6 million Jews.
He(A. Hitler) said “the jews are undoubtedly a race but not human, they cannot be human in the sense of being an image of God.
Adolf Hitler hated the word of God(The Bible) & HIS commandments, he called the 10 commandments ” the curse of mount Sinai” he hated the word of God that exposed his demonic heart.
Adolf Hitler hated Christianity, he and the nazi army murdered many Christians, children with down syndrome etc, he called Christianity a disease and once said the heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was Christianity, adding that it was an invention of the Jews.
He murdered & imprisoned Godly pastors and replaced them with his false teachers, he also replaced the cross with his own swastika, he tried to destroy the word of God(The Bible) by burning millions of bibles, he rewrote the ten commandments that God gave to Moses and printed hundreds of thousands of false teachings in other to twist the word of God.
What he(Adolf Hitler) didn’t know was that he was dealing with the word of God & God’s word endures forever.
According to God’s word people like A. Hitler would face the righteous judgment of God for all eternity.
When I point out that an action or a view is wrong some of you say that I am judging and that I shouldn’t judge.
When someone makes a righteous judgment is that wrong? That’s a rhetorical question, because without righteous judgment we can’t live.
We all make judgements the moment we get out of bed, some of us hundreds, some thousands in a day.
Jesus would say when you judge, judge righteously!( John 7:24), he condemned hypocritical judgments for example- A bank robber telling someone who picks pocket, not to steal.
Jesus would say “And why do you look at the speck in your brotherâs/sister’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother/sister, Let me remove the speck from your eye, and look a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brotherâs/sister’s eye.
On one hand you condemn Adolf Hitler and his reprobate armies and they deserve to be condemned, they are facing God’s Holy judgment and will face it for all eternity because they were not just worse than wild animals but they were doing the works of their father(satan).
On the other you(Nativenewyorker) & others support & defend organizations like planned parenthood and others like them that have murdered HUNDREDS(100’s) of millions of innocent babies in womb all over this world and they are still murdering this precious, defenceless little ones as I am writing right now.
More than 300 babies are murdered in the womb everyday in Canada and more than 58 million babies have been murdered in the USA since Roe V wade.
There is a HOLOCAUST taking place in the USA, Canada and around the world, it is sanctioned by the government, supported by millions of people in the name of “healthcare” or “woman’s right” and just as Adolf Hitler didn’t consider his enemies human, most of this people who support the murdering of innocent defenceless children do not consider this babies to have life in them.
Planned parenthood and other satanic inspired organizations like them do not just stop at murdering this babies, the also sell their body parts for money.
This is what Jesus said to those who hurt little children whether they are in the womb or not they are God’s creation(he is the giver of life) he said “it would be better for him/her to have a great millstone fastened around his or her neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea than to hurt one of these little ones.(Matthew 18:6, Luke 17:2)
Nativenewyorker you said you are Jewish and you believe in God but you defend & support those who break his commandments, the sixth(6th) commandment- ” you shall not murder ”
Here are some of the sins that GOD hates not all but some, In Proverbs 6:16-17 this is what it sayâs-
16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.
Did you notice the one I put in capital letters
In the book of Psalm 51:17 it sayâs- The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
God is rich in mercy & grace willing to forgive anyone who sincerely seeks him for forgiveness.
God said in Isaiah 1:18- though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
For those who have had an abortion, remember that the sin of abortion is no less forgivable than any other sin. Through faith in Christ, all sins can be forgiven (John 3:16; Romans 8:1; Colossians 1:14). A woman who has had an abortion, a man who has encouraged an abortion, or even a doctor who has performed one can all be forgiven by faith in Jesus Christ.
Am not against a woman having an abortion if her life is at stake because now her life is on the line, the truth is more than 90% of abortion that takes place has nothing to do with the womanâs life being at risk.
Am also not saying that those who have committed this actâs canât be forgiven, they can all be forgiven because GOD is merciful and would forgive anyone who humbly repents.
An undercover journalist found out and reported some of the Evil works of this demonic organization(planned parenthood)
If you want to find out more SEARCH FOR CENTRE FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS IN YOUTUBE you will find dozens of videos showing the evil works of planned parenthood. I encourage anyone who wants to know the truth about this evil organization called planned parenthood to search for centre for medical progress in YouTube the undercover investigator DAVID DALEIDEN exposed how planned parenthood murders innocent children & sells their body parts.
This organization is so evil that the are willing to murder innocent, defenceless, precious children created in the image of Almighty GOD because of money.
The undercover investigator David daleiden was arrested for exposing the wicked actions of planned parenthood, think about that he was arrested, but those who murdered innocent children & sold their body parts were not arrested, they were not even fired from their jobs.
But thank GOD all charges against him(David daleiden) has been dismissed in Texas but he still has an ongoing case in California, 14 of 15 felony charges have been dismissed.
While you search for centre for medical progress on YouTube also search for 180 itâs a video produced by a Jew who became a Christian.
David daleiden also conducted interviews with different media organizations like fox news, cnn and other networks as well, you can watch his interviews on YouTube.
Abby Johnson worked at planned parenthood in Bryan, Texas as a clinic director for 8yrs she resigned after watching an abortion on ultrasound.
She said that in September 2009, she was called in to assist in an ultrasound-guided abortion at 13 weeks gestation. She said she was disconcerted to see how similar the ultrasound image looked to her own daughterâs. Johnson, who previously believed fetuses could not feel anything while being aborted, says she saw the fetus squirming and twisting to avoid the vacuum tube used for the abortion.
âFor the briefest moment,â she wrote in her memoir, Unplanned, âthe baby looked as if it were being wrung like a dishcloth, twirled and squeezed. And then it crumpled and began disappearing into the cannula before my eyes. The last thing I saw was the tiny, perfectly formed backbone sucked into the tube, and then it was gone.â
Johnson continued working at the clinic for 9 more days, but soon met with Shawn Carney, leader of the local anti-abortion group Coalition for Life, with whom she was well-acquainted after his years of activism against Planned Parenthood. She told him she could no longer continue assisting women in getting abortions. She resigned on October 6, 2009.
Johnson said after her resignation that her bosses had pressured her to increase profits by performing more and more abortions at the clinic.Johnson estimated the clinic profited $350 on every abortion.
The interview is just 4 minutes long is one of many interviews she done. I hope you watch or download it.
The Holy Spirit would lead the prophet Isaiah to say “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight”(Isaiah 5:20-21).
RIGHT would always be RIGHT and WRONG would always be WRONG.
Men/women can put in laws or change laws but Godly morals will never change.
A thousand years from now, a billion years from now RIGHT will always be RIGHT because Godly morals transcends time.
Talks about the Holocaust, planned parenthood and so many important topics, they main producer of this video is a Jew who has put his trust in Jesus Christ.
He( Ray Comfort) has written many books(more than 70), he has written about his faith(Christianity), Adolf Hitler & other important subjects.
The video is called 180 because it changed the hearts of many, both those who were interviewed and those who watched it, it’s 33 minutes long and I believe it will bless you.
John Rosenstern is someone I respect a lot his Jewish and his parents survived the Holocaust, they were living in Germany before the came to USA.
John and his mother became Christians by putting their trust in Jesus Christ, his father later gave his life to Christ a couple of years before he died.
John Rosenstern is a successful businessman but more importantly he is a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, he shares the word of God in prisons in the USA, churches & around the world.
His son Josh Rosenstern & daughter are Christians who I admire their faith in God.
John & Josh host a program called INSIGHT it airs on SBN(Sonlife broadcasting network) it’s a program filled with smart discussions & truths, it’s very interesting.
You can download the app(SBN) in the Apple store or on Google play.
There are other programs on SBN that are amazing but here are some of John’s articles- http://www.francesandfriends.com/jr.html
I know that I have written a lot, so I will stop here for now, I love you guys and I know you might not appreciate that statement but I do.
Love is not the unconditional acceptance of what is immoral or wrong, love is kind, patient, faithful, truthful etc.
I have been busy with some work for a number of days now & I might be busy next week, hopefully I won’t be to busy to come here.
When I was less busy I wrote down one or more comments a day but I didn’t want to post them cos one without the other won’t be complete.
If you ignore or reject everything that I have said, then please listen to this- God is a merciful God and when we come to him in humble repentance seeking for forgiveness & mercy he won’t cast us away.
When we put our trust in Christ Jesus & what he has done for us on the cross we receive the gift of God which is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Jesus would say “I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through me(John 14:6).
“When I point out that an action or a view is wrong some of you say that I am judging and that I shouldnât judge.
When someone makes a righteous judgment is that wrong?”
I wouldn’t say that it is wrong to make a “righteous” judgment, if by that you simply mean a “correct” or “true” judgment. But I suspect that you mean something different by “righteous” from what I do, something that merely assumes what I would deny (e.g. that the Bible is the word of God, by definition the truth, etc.)
I realize that you are primarily interested in converting others to Christianity because you sincerely want to save their souls. However, if you are actually interested in *engaging* with others (at least, me), then you have to convince me that you are open to the possibility that your world-view is completely wrong. (I am open to mine being wrong, but you would have to convince me, and you’ve got a long ways to go).
So I’ll ask you again: do you recognize the possiblity that you’re completely wrong about the things you post here: that Jesus Christ is not the son of God, indeed, that there is no God? If you answer: “No, I do not recognize that possibility,” then to me your mind is closed and I cannot have a rational conversation about these topics with you. (I suspect that many others feel the same, which is why you get so little response to all of your posts).
If, however, you can honestly answer: “Yes, I recognize that all my beliefs about God and Jesus (and Israel and Planned Parenthood and many other things) *could* be wrong, then you show me that you have an open mind and I will discuss any of these things with you, if you wish.
You need help. Seriously! I don’t need to read your pious, self-serving revisionist history! It galls me to see you daring to lie anecrrwrote the origins of anti-semitism! My people were cast out for centuries and wandered from country to country to find a home. It is absolutely correct that the Jews were blamed god the death of Christ! You even accused Jews of participating in the death of Jesus, along with others. So you are perpetuating this falsehood that has plagued my people for centuries. I am only sorry that my father is not still here to set you straight! Also my grandparents who had to leave Russia because of being persecuted. My great-grandfather on my father’s side was killed by the Russians in a pogrom. My grandparents had already emigrated to America and found out about his death. My grandfather wanted to go back and avenge his death, but with a wife and eight children he realized that he needed to stay in America.
I despise your ignorance and blatant disregard for historical facts. I am proud to be Jewish, proud of my people and their journey and survival. When my father’s fellow soldiers wanted to kill Jews because they killed Christ, my father recognized them for the anti-Semitic bigots that they were. That’s why he confronted them with his gun and dared them to kill him! He knew to stand up to prejudice and he had the courage and guts to fight for himself. He never backed down and never allowed anyone to attack him for being Jewish. Hitler and the Nazis may have killed over six million Jews, but we are still here and thriving! We have Israel. We have triumphed against extermination. We will never give up and stand proud and strong.
Your alternative facts and propaganda will never prevail.
Try hard not to read what Stanley posts here. Scroll, scroll, scroll….I know I post too much music when I’m binge on it. I’ve tried to cut back. I don’t want to be as annoying as Stanley and his preaching. It’s over the top. As if we haven’t all heard it before and rejected it long, long, ago.
That was so cool and on many levels interesting — I watched it last night and will likely watch it again. I was laughing and crying. Do the Hong Kongians really look down on Koreans? That girl is a beautiful Gangsta hero đ
Great idea! I am with you! That might just solve the problem’! Because the orange moron is the problem! This is what I was afraid of the most when he got elected – that there would be an international crisis and the orange moron would run off at the mouth and take us to the brink! Listening to him is enough to scare anyone! Daring North Korea, a regime that wanted to provoke him and give them an excuse to attack. They have been testing him and he just puts his foot in his big mouth. I cannot tell you how mortified I am watching this madman ramble on likens crazy man. He is so obviously unfit to be president’ it’s like a reality show to him.
He may bring the world to the brink of a nuclear war. I wish we had your system in the UK, where parliament can have a vote of no confidence and then there is new leadership. We need to get Trump out now. We can’t wait for impeachment!
Nny, yes it’s true that under the British system he would unquestionably face a vote of no confidence and would almost certainly be voted out of office. like you the thing that has always frightened me most about him is the nuclear aspect.

Disgusting scenes in Charlottesville.
Trump voters this is on you.
Yes I am watching the coverage on tv. It breaks my heart to see this horrific scene. The right of white supremacist groups and right wing fringe groups with their hate-filled rhetoric, is a sad thing to see.
You are right. This is all on Trump. This is what happens when you preach hatred and bigotry and divide people.
So, it looks like the man with unfettered access to the world’s biggest stockpile of nuclear weapons, Donald Trump, owes his presidency to Vladimir Putin and home-grown Nazis. And it’s Kim Jong whatsits we should all be afraid of??
What we are seeing is truly devastating for some us @ratcliff. I know for sure am not alone in this but I truly held the USA in high esteem and what we are seeing now is not only confusing but honestly terrifying. Some of us are involved in pushing for democratic and economic reforms in our countries and have benefitted a great deal from the moral support afforded us by the USA. We have always used the USA as a model for what we should strive towards. Not anymore. A word from the American Ambassador carried a lot of weight and we used this as leverage over our despots but now……………it’s a mess. Nobody hears from the American Ambassador anymore, understandably.
I personally feel let down. It’s like being in a long-term relationship only to discover your significant other is a rotten cheat. Aaaagh!
It hurts, it hurts deeply to feel separated from our allies. But forces are at work in the Whitehouse which are setting us up to be divided and conquered. And I fear what’s happening across the country and that it truly is the POTUS himself taking 3 days to condemn the KKK, White Nationalists, Neo Nazi’s and as a group what is now known collectively the alt right. Attempts are being made to normalize this movement and Trump has given them the green light. For a sitting POTUS to behave in the face of it, (the Neo-Nazi terror attack in Charlottesville), behave like he’s being forced to condemn them and gives them a wink and a nod while reading the teleprompter, it’s sickening. There is nothing to embrace in monuments to slavery and the civil war – but hate runs deep through generations in the confederate mentality and grudge that lost the civil war lives on. It’s never gone away. With Trump in the Whitehouse, and I no longer can blame Steve Bannon, Steven Miller, that really scary guy “Gorka”. Trump is infatuated with the alt righ himself or he would fire them! If this alt right movement wasn’t what he wanted they would be gone from his cabinet!! He’s too selfish not to want them. They make up the base of his supporters – he loves them no matter what, ghastly as it is to see.
All this just makes America weaker. Policies that underpin our democracy are being rewritten – team Trump is doing all it can without the house and Senate. All we have worked for over decades from healthcare to climate change to civil rights’ and supporting out allies, it is all being eroded while the media (rightly focuses on domestic alt right terror and Korea). He will do anything to remain in control, including start a war with North Korea to keep himself relevant stop the FBI criminal investigation into him. As that criminal investigation of Trump gets closer to the money trail, the mob-style corruption, lying, money-laundering, years of tax evasion, in sum, as the criminal activity of the Trump family and close associates, comes into light, he will do ANYTHING to stop it. Creating huge chaos one way or another is what the Trump train is speeding toward.
Godspeed our dogged free-press, the New York times, MSNBC and others that refuse to be intimidated and are true patriots of democracy. I’m a nobody but I can’t sit back — I have to speak out and get out to resist any way I can. Which seems impossible and dangerous in Idaho.
The GOP is dividing, Trump support is eroding. But it’s happening slowly. The majority party has too much greed and immorality – But I have to look for the the bright spots – those with a conscience have to be coming around or trying to to continue to run the country will not happen – Congress and Senate have to keep working but Trump makes it hard to focus with the criminal investigation into his ties to Russia and collusion in his election and threats being launched back and forth about bombing Guam, of all things…it’s a real threat too. Trump has done his part to escalate the situation with his fire and fury rhetoric.
It’s daunting. I feel betrayed. We’re sliding backwards and at a time we need to be united, we are as domestically divided as I’ve ever known and felt in this country. This is what enemies of America and of democracy have wanted. I don’t know if there is a way to stop the division — the hate from within. And if we can’t do something, well, others in the world will happily step in, in time.
Meanwhile…all I can do seems small, I’m not that smart but with help of others and our heads together, determined, we keep connected and organize. And it really is grassroots in Southern Idaho. But like Heather Heyer – we have to try. We have to keep calling and bugging our representatives and state senators and letting our voices be heard! And much of the time want to scream!!!!
Thanks, Mira Andi! it’s a perfect song. You make me cry but also give me strength and lift my spirit. I love you — you really do make a difference from thousands of miles away – I feel your love and strength.
RC!…I’m glad u liked this song!..I can’t do much from this distance…all i can do is give u my love and encouragement in anything u do…i feel our connection so strongly…so,keep believin’ that my spirit and love will always be with u k?Always take care of yourself when u go somewhere babe!…Promise me!
Yay!!….But….but…i’m worried now rc!…what’s going to happen to my backside today with the energy that you’ve got??Is it still there at the end of the day??Especially i picked this Fabbiano to win Cincy!!….and Tipsa to semi..and who is this Ramanathan??hah??..Urgh!!…i’m doomed!!…Be gentle with me rc!!
Mira! I looked for you yesterday on site but couldn’t find you
..sorry I didn’t get back to you on Sunday… I had a friend come round…

Hey amy!!…Miss u mucho!!!…oh!that’s alright amy!!…..that’s okay if u can’t come here more often…i understand you’re busy amy!…i can feel your love and support even from this distance..and i’m very happy everytime u come here…but,it’s not fair of me to demand something like that amy…u come when u have free time and not busy k?Me and rc and Nny will always welcome u with an open heart and love..okay?Love u!!
I just want you to know that if you need me mira I will come here more often… I should probably be around Thursday morning British time so if you can be there then we can have a good talk and plenty of laughs!! But don’t put yourself out if that’s not good for you mira!!! Sending you a hug and kiss
Okay amy!!….i’ll wait for u on Thursday that’s for sure….
People from USA…how and when can impeachment proceedings start ? this is more for my info. The President of the worlds most powerful democracy and the country whom everyone looked upto cannot be making a fool of itself day in and day out and its people cant do anything about it ?
What exactly do you mean rc when you say he owes it to putin n home grown nazis. I have heard about this but how can an outsider fix a countrys elections ? Does America have electronic voting or paper ballet voting ? If electronic yes it can be maybe if the machines are programmed to transfer votes but isn’t there a separate office in usa independent of the government to oversee elections ? And Hillary still won the popular vote so real smart fixing was done to fix only swing states ? Someone please tell me..curious to know…
The Republican Party controls both houses of Congress. They have the majority. If it was up to the Democratic Party, there would be impeachment articles already put up for a vote.
The only way I can see impeachment going forward is if the Democrats take control of the House in the 2018 mid-term elections.
There is a special prosecutor who is investigating Trump and his associates. Unfortunately it takes time to make a case for high crimes and misdemeanors, which is the standard stated in the Constitution.
It took a long time to get Nixon in the 1970’s. So it is not a speedy process. The founding fathers of this country wanted stability. They did not want the parliamentary system in Britain. In that case, there can be a vote of no confidence that would effectively dissolve the government. We don’t have that.
Also, we are dealing with a man who is a criminal, who has lied and cheated and built his business by ripping off people. He created a phony university that bilked people out of their life savings. He has gotten away with this all his life. His father was a racist who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Trump refused to allow African Americans to live in his buildings, which got him sued by the federal government.
This is a man with no scruples, morals or principles. I can totally see him selling out his country to get Russia to help him win the election. It’s all about him getting what he wants.
He is trying to create a fascist government and dismantle our freedoms and liberties. On top of all of that, I think he is certifiably insane.
I just don’t know if this countr can be saved once we get him out. But if the Republicans had the integrity and guts and decency, then they would impeach him now.
And during elections he had made tall claims threatening to take Hillary to jail…no follow-up on that ? Aren’t his own party men not revolting against him ? It’s finally a party system not about a person. He is just the face.
No, the Republicans are not revolting against him. That’s the problem. They are afraid of angering his voters. Trump will exploit fear and hatred to divide this country. That is why we have a rise in hate crimes now. That is why the white supremacist groups are out there fomenting riots and disruption and violence.
Trump has already given intelligence to the Russians. He sold out to them for their help in manipulating the election. He colluded with s foreign government to get elected.
Not only is he evil, he is a traitor to his country. I don’t think we can take much more of this.
My heart breaks for the young woman who was killed in that protest. She was fighting for what she believed in. Hatred killed her. Intolerance and bigotry. Trump has been encouraging the lunatic fringe of racists and bigots for a while now. This is the sad result.
The reason Trump had fought do hard to not release his income tax returns, is because he is hiding something. I believe he was paid off by the Russians. He got money from them in exchange for selling out his country.
It’s not about fixing the voting. It was about hacking emails and info from the DNC and releasing it to take down Hillary Clinton. Why would the Russians only hack the Democratic National Committee? Why not the Republicans? Because they were colluding with Trump to influence the election.
Trump is dirty. There is nothing this man would not do for a buck. There is a reason why David Duke, a former Grabd Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, is supporting Trump. He knows a racist bigot when he sees one.
To answer your questions sanju, it is quite simple but it is not by directly hacking voting machines and changing votes.
It is by systematically bribing/blackmailing politicians, hacking computers to glean information (overblown e-mail scandal), creating false “news” stores on facebook, creating false accounts on social media to spread propaganda with a focus on key swing states to sway the vote by just a few percentage points required as that is all that it takes in a nation roughly split 50/50.
“In testimony before the Senate, Clapper described an unprecedented Russian effort to interfere in the U.S. electoral process. The operation involved hacking Democratsâ e-mails, publicizing the stolen contents through WikiLeaks, and manipulating social media to spread âfake newsâ and pro-Trump messages.”
And the GOP is free to impeach at any time but they won’t because there is no short-term perceived benefit for them to do so. It is a deeply flawed system. Remember, after all is said and done, including the recent event in Virginia, just 60% of Americans disapprove of Trump’s performance which is a sad statement. If/when the dust settles if/when there is another so-called election, it is not difficult to believe that this 60% couldn’t fall sufficiently for him to be reelected.
It is much more than just Trump and the GOP. It is a systemic problem within the country as a whole and it seriously impacts us all globally.
The world is controlled for all intents and purposes by sociopaths and the 1% billionaires.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss, as Peter Townshend penned.
I have been thinking for a while now that we need to start protesting against the actors who are calling the shots behind the scenes ie murdoch who owns fox and
many right wing newspapers globally and the mercers who bankrolled trump and bannon and with Cambridge analytica had a big role in brexit.
It really is time that this small number of people with huge power and influence are brought into the spotlight and made to feel the heat…
Thank you for caring enough about our country to ask your questions! They are good ones!
I am just saying embarrassed and feel bad for America’s allies. They must feel so lost and abandoned because of Trump and his wretched rhetoric and hatespeak. He was s a disgrace and it is a shame that he can’t be arrested and locked up now for his crimes. But our Founding Father’s wanted stability in government. They never could have foreseen Americans being stupid enough to elect an evil monster like Trump. He will continue to die the seeds of hate and division in this country because it helps him.
Our system of government has survived for over two centuries, but it is being tested now as it has never been tested before. I hope that Mueller will get the evidence against Trump to get him impeached and kicked out. I just hope it will not be too late.
I am sick over what happened in Charlottesville. I cried last night listening to that girl’s mother. It broke my heart. I don’t know why good people have to die. This young woman Heather really cared passionately about decency and civil rights and freedom. Yet she was killed by blind bigotry and hatred. We have lost someone who wanted to do good and we are poorer for it.
These are tough times and I am trying to stay hopeful and strong. But I truly despise what that orange monster has done to this country. He spews out bile and filth and venom. He is really the scum of the earth.
Nny I knew you would be very upset. I am as well but it’s far harder for you.
My anger over all this frightens me sometimes
It’s not just the orange moron it’s the GOP and fox and the right wing hate jockeys which created the conditions within which this absurd ludicrous figure could come to power.
Ryan and Mcconnell have zero morals..
I just wanted you to know I was thinking of you..
amy!!…oh!…wanna go already?That’s okay…please come again amy!..can’t get enough chatting with u…Oh yeah!..i didn’t watch Rafa much this morning…a little bit busy!..u know,as a Madam President…there’s always something to do!hehe…
in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oĄŻclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
