Trump Delivers For Workers … After Years Of Empty Obama Promises
 

"Labor Market: The latest expectation-shattering jobs report isn't a fluke. It's another sign that President Trump's economic policies are improving the lives of middle class families".  

"The 304,000 gain in jobs reported by the Labor Department was nearly twice the consensus estimate. And it comes after December's expectation-busting gains".

"There's more. The jobs picture is so strong right now that it's pulling people in who've been sitting on the sidelines".

"...The latest jobs report is noteworthy for another reason".

"Job growth is accelerating, nearly 10 years after the last recession officially ended. Job creation averaged 179,000 a month in 2017, and 223,000 last year. In the past four months, it's averaged 250,000. Last year, the economy created 1.3 million more jobs than mainstream economists expected".

It was amusing to see the drive-by liberal media bemoan the recent job report proving President Trump's economic policies are creating a record number of jobs to include idle workers are once again joining the job market. Obama overlooked the millions of workers laid off because of "his" stagnant economy.  While he brags the current economic explosion began on his watch, what he doesn't tell you is the majority of job gains under his administration were government positions not private sector jobs.  

President Trump has resuscitated the private sector. The irony is the democrats want to end the Trump era prosperity and put the country back under high taxes, more regulation, and stifle the energy industry that once again has made America the number one producer of oil and gas in the world - more than Russia and Saudi Arabia combined. In times of war the nations that are self-sustaining in energy usually prevail as did the United States in WWII.  We know (well some of us do) the Bible predicts an end-time world war that will involve All nations of the world, that is, all nations will be impacted by it - WWIII:

Isaiah 34:1-3  ESV

1 Draw near, O nations, to hear,
    and give attention, O peoples!
Let the earth hear, and all that fills it;
    the world, and all that comes from it.
2 For the Lord is enraged against all the nations,
    and furious against all their host;
   he has devoted them to destruction, has given them over for slaughter.
3 Their slain shall be cast out,
    and the stench of their corpses shall rise;
    the mountains shall flow with their blood.

The events of the past week were very disturbing when a Democratic governor along with several other prominent Dems gave their approval to taking the live of a baby outside the womb. That is not abortion, but plain and simple murder anyway you spell it.  This shows have far the United States has declined in moral values.  When ancient Israel sacrificed their children to the god Moloch ("They would heat this idol up with fire until it was glowing, then they would take their newborn babies, place them on the arms of the idol, and watch them burn to death" thinking Moloch would bless them for giving it their children - what folly!).  Today's abortion massacre is similar to the sacrifice of children by these ancient pagans.  "In both, innocent life is destroyed for the pleasure of the parent:"

Because of that horrible wicked act, God later destroyed both nations of the divided kingdom -  Israel 721 B.C. and Judah 606 B.C. 

If the United States thinks God is going to overlook this horrible crime, we are badly mistaken. Abortion, the killing of babies in the womb, is bad enough, but to go a step farther to legalize the murder of a viable child outside the womb is an abomination to God.  He will not allow the United States to do this without JUDGEMENT!   It is coming, it is just a matter of WHEN!

12 years till the world ends? AOC cites the Bible

What Scripture really says about protecting the planet

 

by Joseph Farah

"You no doubt heard tell of radical chic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s prediction that the world ends in 12 years because of man-made catastrophic climate change.

It was on Martin Luther King Day that AOC said this: “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’”

What you probably haven’t heard is that AOC has been quoting the Bible to make her case for the impending doomsday scenario.

Is she right? Does the Bible suggest the planet is in imminent danger of being destroyed by mankind?

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders scoffed at the comment, saying, “I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority and certainly not listen to the freshman congresswoman on when the world may end.”

But AOC was not about to drop the matter. Instead, she put out a series of tweets to make her theological point.

“You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway,” she tweeted, tipping her hat to Relevant Magazine for “Stopping Climate Change is a Part of Following Jesus,” an article by Evangelicals for Climate Action spokesman Kyle Meyaard-Schaap.

Meyaard-Schaap’s bottom line: “But evangelical Christians have every reason to take steps to defend God’s creation and ensure that all people have access to clean air, pure water and a stable climate.”

Of course, who could disagree with such a sweeping statement of goodwill? Everyone does their part for clean air and pure water, and no one has a better track record that the U.S. in improving its environmental picture. But a “stable climate” is a much taller order. The earth’s climate has never been entirely stable. In fact, it’s always changing, though only catastrophically once in history – in a worldwide flood that destroyed all mankind save one family.

AOC’s next tweet was presumably inspired directly by her Bible studies.

“Genesis 1: God looked on the world & called it good not once, not twice, but seven times,” she wrote. “Genesis 2: God commands all people to ‘serve and protect’ creation. Leviticus: God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected.”

Hmmmm. It is true that God called His creation good – though He did it six times, not seven, in Genesis 1. I wonder if it would be inappropriate to ask AOC if she believes that account, puts her faith in it, accepts as true that God actually did that work? That would be my question. Is she a believer? It’s the most important question anyone can be asked. The answer should affect most everything you believe.

But her second biblical citation – Genesis 2 – is more than a little “off.” Nowhere does God command “all people” to “serve and protect creation” – certainly not in Genesis 2. Firstly, there were only two people on earth in Genesis 2 – Adam and Eve. Mankind was to serve God, not His creation. Serving His creation would be considered a grave sin – idolatry. Neither did God ever use the word “protect” in His commandments to Adam and Eve relative to His creation. Rather, they were told to “subdue,” to take “dominion,” to “be fruitful and multiply.” These instructions are anathema to the zealous environmental movement and those sowing irrational fears about imminent catastrophic manmade climate change.

Now AOC’s third biblical citation is the strangest of all by far. Citing only Leviticus, the message seems a tad vague: “God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected.”

There are indeed strong references in Leviticus regarding the relationship between mankind’s behavior and the impact it has on the land. But it’s not the kind of relationship one would expect AOC or an environmentalist activist to cite. In Leviticus 18, God instructs Moses with a series of warnings about avoiding sexual sin – from incest to adultery to child sacrifice to homosexuality to bestiality. The consequences for committing these sins are grave – including death.

God also warns that these sins will cause people to be cast out of the land, which is defiled by such behavior – more than littering, even more than having a large carbon footprint.

Leviticus 18:25 says the land will “vomit out her inhabitants” who participate in these sins.

“Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you,” God tells Moses in Leviticus 18:26-28. “(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you."

One wonders, does AOC believe that? It seems incongruous with her stated positions on marriage and gender identity.

But there’s one big Scripture she has ignored with regard to her preaching about the imminent peril of man-made catastrophic climate change.

That would be the covenant God made with Noah never to destroy the world again with a flood in Genesis 9:11: “And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.”

Since those warning us about the imminent threat of climate change frequently point to the rise of the seas and disastrous flooding scenarios, we know God’s not going to allow that – even if it were in man’s capacity to make it happen, which seems unlikely.

Can man make the world more unpleasant through his activity? About that, God and the Bible are crystal clear. The answer is an emphatic “yes.” Man did just that in the Garden of Eden by disobeying God’s instructions and committing sin. The perfect nature God had created for the world was broken – and it remains that way today.

Will things get worse on earth because of man’s sin? Yes, the Bible tells us. But God does not concern Himself with the production of so-called “greenhouse gases.” Rather, He has identified the sinful acts mankind should avoid for the sake of their own souls as well as the sake of the planet and our neighbors. God warns us throughout Scripture not to add to His law or take away from it. Do we not do just that when we prohibit behavior God does not? Do we not do that when we condone behavior He abhors?

AOC started this by saying: “You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway.” It’s an awkward sentence to be sure. But the truth is this: The Bible is exactly the resource we should consult to determine the right way and wrong way of protecting our planet or anything else. It should be our first stop to learn what’s right and what’s wrong, to live life – and to live it abundantly – and to truly become one of God’s children.

BWV Comment

Joseph Farah's critique of AOC's biblical interpretations is accurate and exposes her penchant for saying things that are not factually true.  God warns us not to handle His Word flippantly, which is what Ms. Cortez did (See  Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 12:32; Psalms 119: 160; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 22:18-19).She is no theologian nor is she a economic expert (a degree in economics from Boston College does not make her an expert) yet she keeps making comments about our economy as though she knows better how to fix it than President Trump and many conservative economists. Her Green energy plan would cost the government and the American people trillions of dollars - money we do not have. In fact all these freebies the far let is advocating - free healthcare, free college tuition, guaranteed income for ever adult citizen would cost the United States government $50-$100 Trillion dollars by economic experts on both sides of the aisle. Again, the United States is technically a bankrupt nation.  The Federal Reserve with their printing press makes sure we stay a debtor nation without the means to pay it back. The federal government could tax every American citizen up to 100% and there would not be enough money to pay for all the free programs democratic ideologues propose.  

The truth is (something the new socialist democratic party could care less about) NOTHING IS FREE somebody has to pay for all the freebies the dems want and guess who that is - the American taxpayer!  The Dems want our money to fund their socialist programs that will never put any money into the people's pockets.  

Ladies and gentleman, people of America understand what the Dems are up to - they want to create a United States "Socialist" America, patterned after the former USSR - the United Soviet Socialist Republics and how did that 70 year experiment work out for the Russian people?   There was no middle class, only a top few wealthy oligarchs had all the money and the rest were the low economic poverty class.  

From 1917 to the fall of the old Soviet Union in 1987 the Russian people suffered many economic hardships. Vladamir Putin realized for Russia to become a superpower and compete on the world stage, he had to inject a quasi form of capitalism into the economy, which is what he did and the same as the Chinese are doing.  Pure socialism never brings any kind of economic freedom and prosperity to the people only to the government. What Ocasio-Cortez is trying to sell to the democrats and to the people is that capitalism enslaves the middle and lower classes while empowering only the rich. That is the very thing Marxist Communist Socialism does.  Cortez was not reared in a low-income community on the contrary her family enjoyed the benefits of New York upper middle class capitalism, which makes her a lying hypocrite to peddle the merits of socialism over the evils of capitalism.  Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren are doing the same thing as well as several other Johnnie come lately leftiesin the new democratic party. 
 
I promise my readers as well as the American people, if the new far left democrats are successful in taking over the democratic party and bringing into existence the United States "Socialist" America, YOU WILL BE SORRY FOR YOUR FOOLISH MISTAKE for our basic freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution - freedom of speech, freedom to own private property, freedom to own a gun, freedom of religion particularly Christianity, freedom of economic commerce, that is, the freedom to own the transportation of one's choice not forced to drive what the government tells you is required, will be gone!  This is just the tip of the iceberg of what the democratic far left has planned for our nation.  

When your bank accounts and investments began to shrink and the jobs go away because of high taxes and burdensome regulations the dems bring back, the moaning, complaining and bitching will be heard in the streets of America, but it will be the fault of those who buy into the socialist lie. Socialism means only one thing - a strong powerful central government that controls the American people from sunup to sundown.  SOCIALISM IS ALL ABOUT CONTROLLING THE POPULATION! 

So the 2020 election will be in my opinion the most critical in our nation's history for it will determine if we remain a free Constitutional Republic with capitalism as the basis of our financial and economic prosperity or will it have a paradigm shift to the left - Marxist Communist Socialism.  If that happens kiss the slogan, WE THE PEOPLE out the window for then it becomes THEY THE GOVERNMENT CENTRISTS with all the power and authority to control our lives 24/7. 

Pray fervently and vote wisely at every level - local, state and federal.  A wise vote is not Socialism in any form!
