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.

 I see we still have system error here, now Jean has become Ronald, its a mad mad world.

 I guess the 21st century Jewish man would never send their woman to be by herself or to a hut...because that book states she is unclean???

 So do most 21st Century Jewish men feel the same, that they are blessed because they were not born a woman?

  That 21st century Jewish man would find himself on the couch, then in divorce court.

God hates DIVORCE... God allowed Moses to permit divorce for the hardness of man's heart.  God would that man and wife reconcile for better or worse, in sickness and in health, until death they do part ... we are to remain married.

Marriage is a Holy Sacrament... a lifelong covenant between man, wife, AND GOD! Marriage unites husband and wife as ONE FLESH. A wife's body becomes one with her husband's body when joined in marriage. In our law husband and wife were once considered ONE... A wife or husband cannot be compelled to testify against the other in court, as that would be self-incrimination.  This concept was once understood by all Christians.. 

This PRINCIPLE  (marriage uniting man and wife as one flesh)... is the mystery which gives Jesus Christ the right to take upon Him the sins of all mankind. HIS BODY BECOMES OUR BODY as He becomes our husband... His Body suffers the penalty of death as our BODY. We are Bone of Christ's Bone and Flesh of His flesh. When we are born again, Jesus becomes our HUSBAND, His Body becomes our body (we are one flesh with Him) and we DIE WITH HIM ON THE CROSS at Calvary ... The penalty of the Law of Sin and Death dies with Him on the cross... His Body is our Body.

Marriage is a Holy Sacrament and the kingpin upon which our salvation rests... therefore, we must not defile or cheapen marriage, treating it as a mere contract, to be torn up and discarded by DIVORCE. Divorce is not to be taken lightly or exercised for any cause other than adultery, and even then God wants us to reconcile with our mate to preserve marriage.

God is not finished with America... she is about to embrace one last outpouring of God's grace...  a witness to the world of America's underlying faith and purpose in the Earth..

 For peat sake, Jean can come back this is the internet and all of take a political punch from time to time. Unless she is afraid...:)

 Anyway we have a storm coming to Alabama, so its like what ever...

I can not even comment now, it all messed up, now reply buttons, only this blank box at the top , and the page is jumping around...

My page is not messed up, but the blogs are blending into yours...

 The box is back and I found the comments, and you are on my page...

Its was on my page, but shifted, remember back when Mr. Nelson made a comment, then he read it the next day, not even him knew how that happened. I have to agree I could not make heads or tells of what was written.

 Yep, what ever...going to post some blogs.

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.”
