A Question for the Offended: Remedy for a Crisis — Clinton, Trump or ?

Originally posted JULY 19, 2016

Four grueling years ago,  the Wall Street-funded  2-Party duopoly imposed a horrible choice upon the American people:

The moderate Mitt ROMNEY,  Vulture Capitalist,  vs.  Barry Soetoro-Obama,  the flashy subversive Socialist, a closet Muslim (and who knows what else).

Although Texas Congressman Ron Paul energized the Republican Liberty movement by packing hundreds of arenas with millions of young, enthusiastic supporters, the US Corporate Media assisted the neo-Conservative  cabal of Bush-Rove-Romney in splitting the vote from one primary to the next, covering up the subterfuge, and squandering this vital new wave of potential  life-long Republican advocates and reformers.

Who can forget the betrayal of the Bush-Rove-RNC’s  engineering of the nomination of Mitt Romney through dirty deals from Iowa all the way to Tampa?

Who can forget Romney throwing the fight by losing 2 of 3 debates?   Did Mitt take a dive for Barak Hussein Obama, and the espionage operation known as the Clinton Global Initiative?  Did the Bush-banker crime cartel place him there to ensure the New World Order, declared by George H.W. Bush on  9/ 11/ 1990, would prevail ?

BUT THIS Year a champion arose to take on the US Corporate Media complex and bust down their electronic Berlin Wall of distraction, diversion, and political correctness.

The American people rallied to the sound of a Trump.  We watched  a street brawler  emerge from the GOP pack as the standard bearer for a return to the America First battle cry of the Reagan years.

Donald Trump and select spokesmen exposed the globalist connections of the CFR-dominated /Goldman-Sachs banker cartel behind the other leading contenders (namely, Boy Marco Rubio, Canadian Ted Cruz, & the floundering Jeb Bush).

Trump Accepts Nomination – Here’s the Plan

trump nominatedTonight in Cleveland Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination.  He wasn’t my first choice, but I don’t care much for Gary Johnson and cannot stand Hillary Clinton.  That said, I watched the acceptance speech and thought it would be good to have a record of ‘The Plan’ he rolled out tonight and some tidbits along the way.

Also for any who were supposed to watch and didn’t for summer school, maybe you will find my notes helpful.  Or of course you can watch approximately 4 hours of speeches here on youtube:

These things were mentioned in the midst of the list above:

Vice President – Mike Pence of Indiana
Christian – Conservative – Republican (in that order)

Kudos to all of his family – specially the ones who spoke at the convention

Task – to liberate USA from crime and terrorism in our communities — because an attack on law enforcement is an attack on all Americans.  We must restore law and order – will work with and appoint best and brightest to get the job properly done (side shot to Rudy Guliani)

What Do you See? What is on Your Mind?

Do you see good or evil

When you encounter a situation, what do you see? Do you see the glass half empty or the glass half full? How you perceive a matter may effect the way you respond to it. What is the proper response? I am not going to tell you the answer, because I do not know for you. I only know what I am learning — albeit very slowly.

What we see is not the entirety of a matter. We can only see from our limited perspective. We cannot know another’s heart in the matter; we don’t even know our own most of the time.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:9

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Psalm 51:10

We need to seek Him in all matters that confront us, moment by moment asking Him to see things the way He sees and respond in the way He would have us to respond.  His ways are above our ways; and, they are way better!
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Isaiah 55:6
There is a lot of division and unrest in our society.  There are lots of ways to divide people.  I have friends who are pessimists and see calamity at every turn and others who see great opportunity in every tragedy.  Which is right?  You might say that both are because a watchman is called to warn people so that they might see in time to change direction; while we are all called to encourage one another even in the midst of the calamity.  We certainly live in a time where we need to both warn and encourage one another.  It works best when we have a word in season for one another – certainly His ways are above ours and if we are seeking Him and following His word – we may yet live to see His resolution to the matter.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
II Timothy 2:15
It is, of course, very important what we dwell on.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8

Is the Lord in the Storm with You?

482px-Rembrandt_Christ_in_the_Storm_on_the_Lake_of_GalileeA good friend of mine, brother in the Lord, mentor, teacher, prayer warrior and encourager in spiritual matters all, Morris Salge, has taken on the task of writing some devotionals for disciples of Christ in business primarily (but life in general).  I have had the distinct honor of getting to review these devotionals and help a bit with the website.  It is an honor, but it has also been hard, as they are not for those who are not seeking Him above earthly treasures.  If you want devotionals that tickle the ears and make you giggle skip these.  If you want to find and hear the Lord above all the noise around us, then dig in and prepare to be challenged.

Is the Lord in the Storm with you?  

Are you listening to Him or are you trying to steer the boat?

Christ, the Disciple and Business

The posts linked to this website all focus on the realities established Christians face in the business world.  By “established.” I mean Christians whose faith is at least 4-5 years old regardless of whether they have grown spiritually or not.  Those who have grown, I hope, will find affirmation in the essays.  Those 4-5 years or more past salvation that have not grown will find loving challenges written to them.

Celebrating British Independence Day #Brexit

Celebrating British Independence from EU

 

Celebrating with folks around the world on twitter tonight– it is like a fireworks display in words.  The results are in.  The Brits have declared their independence from the EU.  The markets are in a chaos predicting that the sky is falling, but people are celebrating and resolved to set the people and the markets free from elitist control.

Here are a couple of my favs on twitter tonight:

A Conservative — Really?

A Conservative — Really?

by Margaret Snow

 

After many years of following politics and being a active voter and frankly, a citizen activist who actually follows legislation, reads bills, and spends time lobbying my legislators for what I believe in — I am quite amused that here in Oklahoma politicians ALL seem to be running as “Conservative.” I make no apologies for being a Constitutional Conservative, a Fiscal Conservative, and a Social Conservative in my views. The references that I find helpful in forming what I believe are on the nightstand next to my bed. They are the Bible, the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, plus an old US History book written before revisionist history was introduced into our schools.

Truth via CrossExamined

Conservative or Progressive

 

If you don’t agree with me, I will still love you but for goodness sake, “Who do you think you are fooling when you call yourself a conservative?” I think the answer to that very question could be a lot of people are confused about the fact that they are likely to be “Progressives” rather than Conservatives.

 

If you are a Progressive, please have the integrity to claim it for those that agree with your positions. Claiming verbally now as a candidate to be conservative will not override your actual views and the positions you will take when elected. Most of your supporters will potentially be one-issue voters who don’t want to look past the agenda they feel will benefit them personally. Many of them are looking for immediate gratification regarding a particular issue that they are passionate about. They will care less or even refuse to consider, the larger picture of how a variety of positions taken today will affect the freedoms and prosperity of generations to come.

 

Being truly conservative requires applying the same liberty standards to every issue and doing it all the time even when we have to consider giving up something in the present that might benefit us personally.

 

Ideas Have Consequences

 

As an observer, I have come to the conclusion that voters are confused about what a real conservative is and even more confused about their own conservative status. It seems many voters are actually confused to a point where they fail to recognize that when a progressive claims to be conservative, they verbalize support for rights and liberties for citizens but take positions that are very much at odds with conservative values. Here are some examples of this type of belief system:

 

  • Government knows better how to spend your money than you do and in order to balance a budget, government just needs a few more tax dollars to be sure its spent right and the right programs are funded.
  • Progressives might agree that we should be afforded our 2nd amendment right but feel government may just know better than the citizenry how far that right goes.
  • Progressives say that we should have private property rights but at a certain point, they feel government knows better than we do how to manage the property we own and love.
  • Progressives think that government knows what is better for our children than we as parents do.

 

Truth in Labeling

 

Some would argue that this explanation is too extreme to describe the views of their particular candidate and that there are exceptions, but in reality a conservative believes that if we give government an inch today (or a 1% tax) they will be taking a mile (or making it 30%) in the future. I would like to see more truth in labeling. If you really are a Progressive then own it. If you really are a Conservative and get elected, please don’t open the door even an inch because we all know where that leads.

 

Not even in my lifetime have I actually been able to experience a period when our government has held to the guidelines that our founding fathers wrote in the most perfect document to ever govern a country. I do believe though, that there are many, like myself, who actually come close to an understanding of that precious concept and have a true desire to preserve liberty for those we will leave behind.

About the Author

Margaret Snow - OHF ThumbnailMargaret Snow is a mother, grandmother, business owner, and native of Oklahoma. She has enjoyed a long successful career in the interior field and started five small businesses over the years both in Oklahoma and in Colorado.

She attributes the foundation for her philosophy on life as being engrained growing up on a dairy farm with hard work ethic and responsibility. Along with her Dad one of the most influential people in her life was her grandmother who lived in the home until she was ten years old. Spending many days literally side by side with her grandmother who was extremely creative, a wonderful story teller, a real historian, and a valuable instructor probably influenced Margaret’s interest in both history and current events throughout the years.

Several years ago Margaret along with her husband Mike returned to Oklahoma to live on a small portion of the old farm where Margaret grew up. Mike recently retired and although Margaret still works on select projects for her clients, today they are enjoying what they consider “the good life” and have opened a real country store on the property.

Amanda Teegarden Gets High Marks from the NRA for Senate District 39

Amanda Teegarden and NRA ratings

Amanda Teegarden said about the ratings: “I am happy to have received a higher rating with the National Rifle Association than two of my opponents. In the midst of talks of increased gun control legislation, the choice is clear if you want to protect your Second Amendment rights! I would be honored to receive your vote of June 28th!”

Website for more info: www.AmandaTeegarden.com

Amanda Teegarden gets high marks from the NRA — and from me! The NRA rarely endorses in races with no actual voting record to support the decision, but does publish ratings in many contested races across the nation.  Because of this issue and many others she has my solid endorsement in this race.  I have known her for many years and have worked with her on many matters.  She has the character, the worldview, and the genuine love of people — as well as the backbone — to do what is right once elected.  Please help her in this race!

Blessings,

Sandra Crosnoe
