America is a Nation called and culled out of the wilderness... to serve God. From the beginning it was so: A harbor for the oppressed, a Nation of light in a world of darkness. No greater purpose has ever been served by a Nation, than to give refuge to the huddled masses; too, embrace every man with liberty. America is a garden set among the nations, a place of refuge from tyrants, and a vision of hope in a world of distress.

American Patriots have bled fields red... In lands far-away her dead reside, for no greater purpose than man should live free; that many may from the Tree of Liberty be feed. Nations stand today where none existed because of America’s sacrifice. Men live where death did stalk the way; all these by the hand of providence and the American way.

These righteous few, these glorious men... who bled fields red, do now speak from heaven's gates, calling to us… Awake! The hour is late, and the day grows short. Evil once vanquished soon returns and where the gate is left open and the watchmen sleep... disaster waits.

Where comes now this incessant roar... this call to build upon the bones of our honored dead; too, deny our heritage, our right to preserve our fallen, from the sound of our enemies trumpet. O’ how wicked men do twist their cause, too use liberty’s bell to plant the enemy’s flag over our hallowed dead. Where honor has retreated the tyrant reigns.

Where liberty did bleed... the tyrant now seeks exaltation? Let these ignoble men no longer stand among the righteous, but in shame be shunned, even as they seek to dishonor our dead. Let them no more walk among patriots or claim to honor those who bled. For profit, 30 pieces of silver, they did sell liberty, once. Now these men, these horrid souls, would dishonor our fallen... too, honor our enemies with a temple to celebrate their tyranny.

What man seeks to blaspheme the soul of a Nation… our fallen dead? Too, honor those who have pulled down our high towers. Too demand our enemies be permitted to walk among us and our honored dead? What manner of man promotes this blasphemy? Who is it, that seeks too bring this horrid curse upon our land? Take thought ye who promote such wicked schemes: God is not blind nor patriots long silent.

Look now to the Lord of Sabaoth ... For His hand is not empty, nor His arm short. A sword doth descend and justice will soon stand among the Nations. Let the wicked honor their own for no honor is found in building upon the dead. There is no triumph in shoal and soon the moon shall turn to blood, too bleed fields red. Then the righteous dead shall speak and the wicked shall be condemned.

Men walk among Nations... Some serve righteousness and justice, others serve their own ends. Still, the wicked live among the righteous, their hearts blinded to justice. Justice however, will prevail for God is not blind. God will not let the wicked define the course of nations nor administer justice for long. Rather, God is patient waiting for the fruit of man to ripen; that in due season, 'Justice' may be revealed and evil ended.

 If I have to get ya jumping over a blog I posted, to get you to post a blog.....

Hmmm?

Then I will find something else to post, to get ya in gear...

Always beautiful, Col. 

Amazing fall from a pinnacle of hope and faith, to a rotten, stinking cesspool of hate and lies.

And no one doing anything about it, except those of us who pray.

but we can do something about it

we can still VOTE and that we must

needless to say the Dems are ready and gearing up for the mid terms so must we

hate and lies are one thing but truth is always there and they know it.  they can run from it but

cannot hide.     Feinstein; Schumer; Durbin; and the rest can bitch and whine all they want

they wanted the FBI investigation and got it.    oh the truth hurts but it is abt the end of the presumption of innocence for them.   not just kavanaugh.

America will stand only if we fight for it.   we cannot give up now

Voting has gotten us where we are. We have all elected these people. We let Roe stand. as "law, even the Pastors and Christians. We let Obergefell stand as "law."

Until the people actually choose righteousness, nothing will change. Given the choices we have today, vetting is poor. 

How did, in Montgomery County, Ohio, Sheriff Phil Plummer rubber stamp, the muslim Adil Baguirov, to lead the Dayton Board of Education, and now candidate in this Midterm election, as County Recorder, when he was given $250,000 by the President of Azerbajan to lobby on behalf of Azerbajan for WE the People's money, and he paid for 10 of 12 Congresscritters to go to Azerbajan to meet the P of Azerbajan, and then Adil refused to legally declare his lobbyist status, when demanded by Congress to file correctly and legally, and he told them "It's none of your business." He was under an Ethics violation and still, no one cared.

The Republican party rubber stamped him due to his available money. He has shell companies that he shuts down as needed and he works the money from multiple places.

Until there is vetting on morality and character and Judeo Christian beliefs and original intent, how can anything change?

We can't even get Congress to agree that Jim Jordan is the best choice for Speaker, nor have they thrown out Ryan. 

Let the righteous stand... and the wicked be chastened for God is in control and the wicked shall be judged in their iniquity they shall be taken.  God is patient and long-suffering ... wanting the wicked to repent... His mercy and grace are extended even unto the end of days... and then the judgment.

However, the righteous shall stand in the day of judgment... as every knee bows and tongue confesses Jesus Christ is Lord... then, the oppressed shall rejoice as the Son rises in the East and Justice has her say... in that day every wrong shall be righted and the wicked shall be condemned... none shall escape the Lords vengeance.

 Yes Bonnie,

 How to place your vote, through research, look at their last name, see if their name has been changed. See if they are Christians, all else is not the true foundation of God.

 Vote American, for American Politicians.

I do not know what just happen but Tif, your comment bleed into mine, wow what a trip.

  Tif, look above at Jean's comment, I remember her from a while back she never once posted "Judeo Christian beliefs " I do not believe she is Jewish, just trying o fit in.

 You see, a long time ago Dee was tired of her, wanted to kick her out of here, I am the one that ask Dee to leave her alone, if she is a Democrat she is untitled to her views, to a point of crossing that red line.

 Now she wants to play, I am all for games, love them. And I do remember other things she did.

 So if Jean is Jewish, she would be able to reply to things I have read in the Hebrew Bible, as well as the Talmud, without googling it, because I would state the need to know, where it could not be googled and only a Jewish Girl would know of what I asked.

 Shall We Play A Game..

ALERT ALERT

 Will  Tea Party Hand The Liberals Their Ass On Election Day? 

It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign.

Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later.

It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong.

“Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living déjà vu,” Ferguson said. “I just don’t know which yet.”

Ferguson is one of many Democrats who felt the string of unexpected defeat in 2016 and are now closely — and nervously — watching the current election near its end, wondering if history will repeat itself. This year, instead of trying to win the presidency, Democrats have placed an onus on trying to gain 23 House seats and win a majority.

The anxiety isn’t universal, with many party leaders professing confidently and repeatedly that this year really is different.

But even some of them acknowledge the similarities between the current and previous election: Trump is unpopular and beset by scandal, Democrats hold leads in the polls, and some Republicans are openly pessimistic.

FiveThirtyEight gives Democrats a 76.9 percent chance of winning the House one month before Election Day. Their odds for Clinton’s victory two years ago? 71.4 percent.

The abundance of optimism brings back queasy memories for Jesse Lehrich, who worked on the Clinton campaign and remembers watching the returns come in from the Javits Center in New York.

“I was getting texts after the result was clear – including even from some political reporters and operatives – texting me, you know, ‘Are you guys starting to get nervous?’ or ‘What’s her most likely path?’” he said. “I was like, ‘What do you mean, starting to get nervous? What path? They just called Wisconsin. We lost.’”

“People were so slow to process that reality because they just hadn’t considered the possibility that Donald Trump was going to be the next president,” he continued.

Lehrich said he sees similarities between 2016 and 2018. But he said he thought Democrats were cognizant of the parallels and determined not to let up a month before the election, as many voters might have two years ago.

Other Democratic leaders aren’t so sure. Asked if he thought his party was overconfident, Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton responded flatly, “Yes.”

Democrats could win a lot of House seats, he said, or could still fall short of capturing a majority.

“The point is that we’ve got to realize that this not just some unstoppable blue wave but rather a lot of tough races that will be hard-fought victories,” Moulton said.

If Democrats are universally nervous about anything after 2016, it’s polling. The polls weren’t actually as favorable to Clinton and the Democrats as some remember, something 538’s Nate Silver and some other journalists pointed out at the time.

But Clinton’s decision not to campaign in a state she’d lose, Wisconsin, and the failure of pollsters everywhere to miss a wave of Trump supporters in red areas are mistakes Democrats are still grappling with today.

“Clearly last cycle, polling was off,” Ben Ray Lujan, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told reporters last month. “There were a lot of predictions that were made last cycle that didn’t come to fruition.”

Lujan emphasized in particular how pollsters missed the rural vote, calling it a “devastating mistake.” He said the DCCC has taken deliberate steps since 2016 to get it right this time around, but underscored a congressional majority still required a tooth-and-nail fight.

“So I’m confident with the team that’s been assembled, but I’m definitely cognizant of the fact we need to understand these models and understand the data for what it is,” he said.

One Democratic pollster said the data he’s seen makes plain that the party is favored to win a majority — but that it’s still not a sure thing. He said even now it’s unclear if the political environment will create an electoral tsunami, or merely a good year where Democrats might still fall short of a House majority.

“We’ve all learned a lesson from 2016 that there are multiple possibilities and outcomes,” said the pollster, granted anonymity to discuss polling data one month before the election. “And if you haven’t learned that lesson, shame on you. That 20 percent outcome can happen. That 30 percent outcome can happen.”

This year, Democrats have history on their side: The incumbent president’s party historically struggles during midterm elections. That wasn’t the case in 2016, when Democrats were trying to win the presidency for three consecutive terms for the first time in their history since Franklin Delano Roosevelt (The GOP accomplished the feat only once in the same period, with Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.)

Some Democratic leaders say the reality of Trump’s presidency — unlike its hypothetical state in 2016 — changes the dynamic entirely.

“Democratic energy is at nuclear levels,” said Steve Israel, a former DCCC chairman. “Democrats would crawl over broken glass to vote in this election.”

Israel said he still has concerns about November (political operatives always have concerns about the upcoming election). But he waves away the notion that the party might fall short of a House majority.

“Most Democrats and a heck of a lot of Republicans I speak to believe that Democrats will have the majority,” he said. “The real question is, by how much?”

Ferguson is, of course, of two minds: He thinks the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the day-to-day reality of Trump’s presidency fundamentally changes how voters will see this election.

But he’s also gun-shy about what could change in the next month, after the multitude of surprises that occurred during the last month of the 2016 race, whether the “Access Hollywood” recording or then-FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was re-opened.

Many Republicans argue the 2018 election has already seen its October surprise, with the confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh finally motivating conservative voters to vote.

“I don’t know what the October surprises will be,” Ferguson said. “But we make a mistake if we assume that what we’re seeing today is what we’ll see for the entire month. We lived through it two years ago.”
