where law ends tyranny begins

This powerful statement is engraved on the side of the Department of Justice Building in Washington, DC. It is always worth remembering, but especially in times when those in power are working so hard to undermine the precepts of a lawful society.

I fully support the fine men and women who have dedicated their careers and their lives to ensure our nation abides by the rule of law. The work of the Justice Department is critical to our freedom.

All those currently in power who are attempting to discredit and and undermine the efforts of the DOJ do so because they are afraid of the truth and fear justice being done.  They neither believe in the supremacy of the law, or feel that the law applies to them.

They act as if they are above the law. Robert Mueller and the Justice Department will soon correct that very mistaken understanding.

#BLOTUS: the Lying King

The Republican Tax Bill is another gigantic lie. Our president is desperate for a political win, and the Republicans in Congress refuse to demonstrate they have the morals to do anything but pay off their mega donors.

Liar-in-Chief, #BLOTUS, the Lying King, whatever he is called, the truth is that the man in the Offal Office is a pathological liar unfit to to do anything but run with the hyenas. He is actually afraid of the truth, and flees from it like vampires flee from sunlight.

If he wasn’t so dangerous it would be funny. But, the reality is this man is a true threat to democracy. It’s time for all citizens to realize what he is doing to destroy the values we have long lifted up to the world.

a frightening poll for followers of Jesus

This Washington Post-ABC News Poll from last October should strike fear into the hearts of those who are disciples of the Man from Nazareth. White evangelical Christians were the biggest believers that the #BLOTUS had a strong moral character. White non-evangelical Christians were not far behind.

What that reveals about white Christians, especially evangelicals, should start alarm bells ringing in every church in the country. If those who most deeply profess to follow Jesus actually think Trump has a strong moral character, it means that they have absolutely no clue as to who Jesus is or what He taught.

The poll does, however, give us a good indication of why the church no longer has the authority and moral leadership it once had. White Protestants need to once again figure out that faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus is not the same as blind patriotism, love of country, or love of power.

The most interesting statistic was that those who professed no religion seemed to have the best understanding of the lack of moral character of the #BLOTUS. Is that possibly because their understanding of morality isn’t filtered through the lens of religion?

never, not even once…

#BLOTUS is speaking at the United Nations. That in itself is frightening. Even more frightening is the clear and present danger of a third world war that begins with two morons having a pissing contest.

before and after (part 2)…

Here is another small illustration of the difference a year makes. The world’s confidence of our nation’s leadership and our doing the right thing just continues to plummet as the world realizes we now have a lying, egotistical clown in our highest position of power.

living on the edge

I believe the entire universe was created for our joy. Yet, most of us live lives of fear and insecurity, preferring the cramped confines of our little boxes to the freedom of the unknown.

Life in all its fullness will never be found in a box.  Only when we have the courage and the audacity to escape the rigid prisons of our own design will we finally experience the glorious freedom for which we were created.

The path to true joy follows the edge. And that path can never be found while in the false comfort of a box, even one made of gold. Jump out of your boxes and into a creation waiting to grant you “joy unspeakable and full of glory.” You won’t regret it.

treason from within

I doubt that Cicero was warning our nation about the #BLOTUS. But, I have to admit that this statesman knew what he was talking about, and it’s just as obvious that his words should be heeded by the wise of any age.

There is no doubt in my mind that Trump appeals to”the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.” And one has only to look at his first few months in office to realize he works best in secret and at night.

The stench arising from the oval office continues to grow as the #BLOTUS rots the soul of our nation.  Truly, “a murderer is less to be feared.”

Yup! You could see it coming.

#BLOTUS takes the axe to anyone that gets too close to the truth. It’s a unbelievable abuse of power, a national disgrace and “a clear and present danger.” We need a special prosecutor now.
