@Right_in_Virginia

It has been my observation ever since I was a child that is is the most rabidly devout that have the most to worry about if their superstition ends up being factual. It might not be obvious enough you can see it,but there is plenty of it that is deeply hidden.

If.  Questioning is a good thing.  Great step forward.

Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, said after Trump announced the withdrawal that he was “in great danger of losing the mandate of Heaven.”

Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham, asked people to pray for Trump to reconsider, saying “thousands of lives hang in the balance.”
Trump won 81% of the vote from white evangelical Christians in the 2016 election, which came just weeks after a decade-old Access Hollywood video surfaced showing him bragging about kissing and grabbing women because “when you are a star, they let you do it.”

Evangelicals have stuck with Trump since, through sex scandals like his alleged payments to hush up an affair with a porn star, and controversies like the investigation into Russian election meddling. In a Reuters/Ipsos poll from mid-September, 70% of white evangelicals approve of Trump’s job performance.

I wonder what is going to happen if ISIS returns to the region with ethnic cleansing as they did before our Military and the Kurds nearly completely contained them?  The images will destroy the support that Trump has had with the Evangelical community.  It is his own policy and callous disregard for human life that will destroy him.  And destroy this country being that there is no Conservative running to take his place.

Perhaps Christians will hold their nose and vote for him.  But these statements from Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham are an indication that what Trump has done here cannot be ignored.

I said it at the time and I’ll say it again..... the formerly known as ‘Evangelical ‘ Christians who said that Trump’s molestation and adultery shouldn’t keep Christians from voting for him , marked the end of the Evangelical/Political right.

When you give up everything you value for political power, you have destroyed yourselves.

Both these men should have known that Trump was not the answer to America’s moral problems when they started slobbering over him. Shame on them for allowing themselves to be fooled by a valueless charlatan.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

And it was even more than that.  They went on and on about Mark Taylor and his Trump Prophesy.  There were books written.  And "Heaven Mandate".  I have heard a lot of people do prophesy.  But the Bible tells us to test the Spirits for truth.  That was not truth.

They compared him to King Cyrus.  At that time the Temple was needed.  There is a New Covenant and the believers are the Temple.  So we know that the building of the Third Temple is for the antichrist. 

I feel sad that they propped him up to that level.  I do believe that no matter who the president is it will serve Gods purpose and we need to pray for them.  But I pray for them to do Gods Will.

You know I kind of do like Melania.  She carries herself well and looks professional.  Its hard to understand how she listens Donald day in and day out.

Not saying she is a good Conservative.  I don't really know but the times she has spoken it was impressive.

Turkish airstrikes in Syria reportedly target journalist convoy, civilians; at least 9 dead

Frank Miles 1 hr ago

Fresh airstrikes from Turkey reportedly targeted civilians and a group of foreign reporters in the Syrian border town of Ras al-Ayn, according to monitoring groups and Syrian Kurdish officials.

The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said the airstrike killed at least nine people - including five civilians on Sunday, while other reports claimed that a convoy with foreign journalists was also targeted, according to Haaretz.

France 24 reported that one journalist was also among the dead, while two French reporters were also injured in the attack. The nationality of the slain journalist was not immediately confirmed.

The airstrikes came hours after President Donald Trump ordered all U.S. troops to withdraw from the area to avoid getting caught in the middle of the fast-escalating conflict. The announcement represents a major shift in alliances for Syria's Kurds after they were abandoned by the U.S., with whom they were longtime partners in the fight against the Islamic State group.

'Journalist' convoy my ass.  GTFO of there. 

Discuss "human rights" violations afterwards...not while they're busy being human shields themselves.

You should have really thought more about that post before you hit send.  Quit trying to constantly to White Knight for Trump and use your head for once.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

Not fair....I've waited a few days before coming down on this.

Turkey politics...betting that with what we've got going on back home...in China, the election, etc., that now would be the time for them to rid themselves of the constant 'terrorist' threat coming from the South.

They told Pres. Trump...not "ask"...that he get his troops or whatever out of there, they were going to move.

Fifty (50) troops.  Specialized forces.  Our best.

Since we have the signed legal treaty with Turkey already, there was nothing we could do.

One man's Freedom Fighter is another's Terrorist.

I don't want to see a Middle Eastern war right now...and surely don't want to give the Democrats campaign fodder.

I honestly respect your take on this.  Understand it, because your background dictates it.  Wouldn't expect anything else.  It's like an arm's length to the "Never leave a buddy behind" kind of thing.

So...I did use my head.  Pragmatically, Pres. Trump had no choice here.   He'll have to respond in other ways (economically)
