Is Hurricane Maria Trump's Katrina? Nope
by Thomas Gallatin:  Hurricane Maria’s direct hit on Puerto Rico caused widespread devastation across the entire island. It left more than three million people without power as well as severely damaging infrastructure, making communication and transporting supplies across the island slow and difficult. In short, much of the island will literally need to be rebuilt. This is why the effects of hurricanes are termed “natural disasters.” But knowing that a powerful hurricane is approaching enables people and the government to better prepare for dealing with the aftereffects of a storm.

          As with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Leftmedia elites were licking their lips at the apparent opportunity to blast Donald Trump and label these natural disasters as “Trump’s Katrina.” However, Trump proved up to the task as the federal government, along with everyday Americans — particularly faith-based groups — jumped to the task of helping out victims of the storms. Harvey and Irma have proved to highlight more the American spirit of self-reliance and neighborliness rather than the socialist ideal of government dependence.
          Now as Puerto Rico recovers from Maria, the challenges are different. On Tuesday, Trump noted the challenge, stating, “It’s the most difficult job because it’s on the island. … You can’t just drive your trucks there from other states.” On Thursday, Trump waved the Jones Act, responding to a request by Puerto Rico’s governor to temporarily loosen restrictions on shipping from foreign countries in order to allow aid and supplies to flow more quickly and easily. Trump will also be visiting the island next week.
          Clearly, Trump has navigated these natural disaster waters well. Interestingly, The Washington Post remains hopeful that Hurricane Maria will cause enough Puerto Ricans to have to move to Florida that it will turn the state Democrat blue. That assumes that Puerto Ricans would rather move than rebuild their island. It also assumes that Puerto Ricans would doggedly cling to Democrat politics irrespective to how well the Trump administration works at helping the island rebuild. Talk about a pessimistic and biased analysis. But what else would one expect from The Post?   ~The Patriot Post

NFL Team Plans New Tactic To 
Demean, Embarrass America From London
{rickwells.us} ~ The New Orleans Saints head to London to face off against Miami on Sunday in what was probably originally a well-intended scheme to use NFL players as ambassadors for the game and our nation... That plan is now falling apart as their inherent lack of character has allowed the games’ anthem ceremonies to devolve into a showcasing of unpatriotic self-indulgence by overpaid ingrates who in no way represent American values or those of Britain, and Europe, for that matter. They are representative of the universal low caliber of individual that is paid by the NFL to move a ball around on a field. They have somehow gotten the idea that because of their high profile but relatively unimportant entertainment function that regular people give a rip about what’s going on in between their ears or their life experiences. We don’t, and we care much less with each passing, insulting demonstration..https://rickwells.us/nfl-demean-embarrass-america-london/

Congressman Just Proposed 
Something That Could Destroy The NFL
{offthewire.com} ~ Rep. Mo Brooks {R-AL} said on Tuesday that the Federal Government should not financially support the NFL because of players'  disrespectful "take a knee" protests during the National Anthem... "I believe we ought to terminate all Federal Government support of the NFL," Brooks told Breitbart News following the conversations with conservatives event at the Capitol "that would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the Federal government - military and non-military - to the extent we do any."...  http://offthewire.com/congressman-just-proposed-something-that-coul...

Vets & Truckers Are Ditching Famous 
Gas Station Chain Over Flag Disgrace
by DAVIS
{conservativetribune.com} ~ Over the past few days, millions of Americans have expressed their outrage over professional football players kneeling during the national anthem. Now, that outrage is turning into action... A number of truck drivers, veterans and everyday Americans are threatening to boycott the gas station chain Pilot Flying J over the actions of the owner — who also owns the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, as well as the actions of one store manager in Kentucky. Several weeks ago, according to WSAZ,  a group of veterans rolled up to a Flying J in the Bluegrass State and put up flags to welcome a rolling Vietnam Memorial. The manager of that particular store then came out and told the vets they weren’t allowed to fly the flags... https://conservativetribune.com/vets-truckers-ditching-gas/?utm_sou...

Colorado GOP Rep: Democrats 
Plan On Kneeling During Special Session
by AARON BANDLER
{dailywire.com} ~ The Democrats seem to have been infected by the NFL's kneeling fever, and now the Colorado Democrats plan to kneel during a special legislative session, according to a GOP state representative... On Monday, the Colorado state legislature is holding a special session to discuss a law that puts an exemption on nine districts on Colorado from collecting sales taxes on marijuana. Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) and the Democrats are claiming that it's costing these districts thousands of dollars, but the Republicans are arguing that any change needs to be presented to the voters. And yet, Rep. Dave Williams (R-Colorado Springs) told me in a phone interview that the Democrats plan to kneel to show solidarity with the NFL national anthem kneelers at the beginning of the special session...This is unbelievable. That's why they are losers.   http://www.dailywire.com/news/21721/co-gop-rep-democrats-plan-kneel...

Judge Moore & God's Law

by Pat Buchanan
{townhall.com} ~ When elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2000, Judge Roy Moore installed in his courthouse a monument with the Ten Commandments that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai carved into it.

Told by a federal court his monument violated the separation of church and state, Moore refused to remove it and was suspended -- to become famous as "The Ten Commandments Judge."

Roy Moore is now the Republican candidate for the Senate from Alabama, having routed Sen. Luther Strange, whom President Trump endorsed and campaigned for.

Moore's primary win is a fire bell in the night for GOP senators in 2018. And should he defeat his Democratic opponent, the judge will be coming to Capitol Hill, gunning for Mitch McConnell.

Yet it is the moral convictions of the candidate that make this an interesting race for all Americans. For Moore is a social conservative of a species that is almost extinct in Washington.

He believes that man-made law must conform to the "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," as written in Jefferson's Declaration of Independence.

If a law contradicts God's law, it is invalid, nonbinding. In some cases, civil disobedience, deliberate violation of such a law, may be the moral duty of a Christian.

Moore believes God's Law is even above the Constitution, at least as interpreted by recent Supreme Courts.

Homosexuality, an abomination in the Old Testament, Moore sees as "an inherent evil." When the high court, in Obergefell v. Hodges, discovered a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, Moore, back on the Alabama court, defied the decision, was suspended again and resigned.
 
Postmodern America may see the judge as a refugee from the Neolithic period. Yet, his convictions, and how he has stood by them, are going to attract folks beyond Alabama. And the judge's views on God, man, and law are not without a distinguished paternity.

In his "Letter from Birmingham Jail," Dr. King wrote: "There are two types of laws: there are just laws, and there are unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that 'An unjust law is no law at all.'...

"A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law, or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law."

In his Declaration, Jefferson wrote that all men are endowed by their "Creator" with inalienable rights, and among these is the right to life.

Many Christians believe that what the Supreme Court did in Roe v. Wade -- declare an unborn child's right to life contingent upon whether its mother wishes to end it -- violates God's law, "Thou shalt not kill."

Throughout our history, people acting upon such beliefs have defied laws, and are today celebrated for it.

Abolitionists, in violation of laws they believed immoral, set up the Underground Railroad to help slaves escape to freedom. King believed that laws imposing racial segregation violated the American "creed" that "all men are created equal" and acted on that belief.
 
Thomas More is considered by Catholics to be a saint and moral hero for defying Henry VIII's demand, among others, that he endorse a lie, that the king's marriage to Anne Boleyn was not adultery.

Early Christians accepted martyrdom rather than obey laws of the Caesars and burn incense to the gods of Rome.

After Hitler took power in 1933, he authorized the eradication of "useless eaters" in the Third Reich. Those who condemned these laws as violations of God's law, and even attempted to assassinate Hitler in 1944, are today regarded as moral heroes.

Moore, should he win, is going to become an object of fascination in The Secular City. Yet his questions and concerns are those of the silent millions on the losing side of America's culture war.

Is the USA still a good and Godly country when 55 million abortions have been performed with the sanction of law in 45 years?

Do court decisions that force Christians to act against their religious beliefs have to be obeyed? What is the duty of Christians in a paganized and perverted society?

What is taking place today is a growing alienation of one-half of the country from the other, a growing belief of millions of Americans that our society has become morally sick.

Christianity and the moral truths it has taught for 2,000 years have been deposed from the pre-eminent position they held until after World War II, and are now rejected as a source of law. They have been replaced by the tenets of a secular humanism that is the prevailing orthodoxy of our new cultural, social and intellectual elites.

If elected, Judge Moore, one imagines, will not be rendering respectfully unto the new Caesar.
