    Default Trump Confirmation Hearings

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/pr...rticle/2611366

    What a mess. I heard part of the Sessions confirmation hearing as played on Mike Gallagher's radio show today. What with the KKK, Code Pink and other protestors it was quite eventful. Sessions has also been criticized for having his Asian American family in attendance by the media. It will be interesting to watch as we go through the hearings.

    I'm thankful these appointed men and women are willing to go through this nonsense so they can help this administration make America great again.

    The same Senator Booker who in the past praised Sessions for his work for civil rights. HIP-O-CRIT!! (Yes, I know it's not spelled that way

    With some of the liberal hysteria I can't help thinking of what Jesus said about straining at gnats and swallowing camels. Some of these people are loony toons.


    Take one and pass it on!

    It looks like the Trump 7 did well this week. The only one that might not get approved is Rex Tillerson--- though this appears unlikely---Marco Rubio here causing some trouble.

    I saw an interview on FOX with a senator (can't remember if it was McConnell - I was just listening and not watching the video), but the statement was made that "I have had a number of unnamed Democrats who have affirmed to me they would vote to confirm him".
    I know the only one who says it publicly is Joe Manchin, but it appears there are a few more democrats in the senate who still have some common sense. And the statement was also made that "the only GOP senator who may not confirm is Rubio, but we hope he will come around".
    Honestly, watching him tear into Tillerson, I was thinking he should get up out of his seat and see if he was sitting on a corn cob!

    All I can say is we are on a downhill slope until the rapture, unless God puts Satan on a VERY short leash (and his VAST horde of willing and eager puppets).

    Default I am not long of this world

    whether through old age or the rapture, I know time is short for me.

    That said, today I thought of the nations gathering against Israel in Paris. Trump is for Israel while Obama is doing all he can to put forth the resolution to officially divide the land....

    I wondered how that would fare for this nation....would we be blessed or not. Then I was thinking of the hollywood elites etc that hate Trump and those protesting his inaugaration. I was thinking how they have been used to divide our nation, spew filth and profanity. I saw Trump as an opportunity for us to burn our idols, to burn the filth in films and books and just the vulgar lifestyle that has been promoted for the past 8 years. I thought of how in the bible Israel would burn their alters and come back to God if just for a generation...

    Now, I don't believe we have generations, but the idea we have someone who wants to make America great got me thinking. Obama used his 8 years to divide, burden with debt, and bring in the open moral decay, along with bashing Christians and Israel at every turn. The naive generation believe morals have no place in today's society....it is whatever you want. Israel is the occupier in their indoctrination. They are against Israel, against morals, and believe in humanism.

    We know America can only be great through the support of Israel. Too many in this nation have strayed and became involved in political correctness and all the evil it embraces. I see the opportunity to burn our things of the world and rededicating ourself to Christ. I see the debauchery of hollywood and the morally corrupt being so against this, fighting tooth and nail. God comes and takes us home. The world rejoices and accepts whatever explanation is given them. God pours out his wrath.

    I feel with Trump's inaugaration people are choosing sides. Trump isn't the issue, but his platform.

    McCain's and Rubio's records as conservatives are pretty spotty.

    Worse that hypocritical. Most of the Demoncrats weren't even interested in the answers, but were just grandstanding and making statements, or simply defaming and slandering the nominees and Trump.

    Bernie Sanders was particularly awful.

    As an Arizonan I approve this message.
    Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    Hugh Hewitt was talking about this on his radio show this morning. Chuch Schumer made an agreement to approve Pompeo of CIA last Friday and then reneged on it. It caused quite a kerfuffle amongst Reps and Dems---shouting, etc. Does not bode well for future interactions with the Minority Leader of the Senate, Chuck Schumer. Pompeo should be approved today.

    I have never quite understood Rubio.
    Part conservative, part liberal, but I don't have a good feel for where we can trust him and where we can't.

    Most other politicians are easier to asses.
    For instance:

    No surprise at all. No surprise at all.
    Many in the patriot community use his name as a reference to something impolite to say.

    Tillerson getting closer. Dems dragging their feet even more after Trump's Executive Orders released. Lots of opposition to DeVos.

    This confirmation process seems to be excruciatingly slow.
