Comments:

Posting Thomas Lecaque’s opinion as somewhat of an adjunct to today’s article by Mr. Lifson about civility and that President Trump’s defenders “should be laughed at, ridiculed, and scorned.” Although Lecaque’s opinion piece was published by the WaPo, the link is to the Prince George Citizen. It seems the author has taken Rick Perry’s accurate comments about President Trump being one among those God has used throughout history and distorted not only the essence of Mr. Perry’s statement, but the religious concepts and convictions of Evangelicals who are steadfast in their understanding of and support for President Trump.

Trump's support by evangelicals is really very simple... Trump = I don't want anyone to kill babies and I will put people on the courts to help that cause. Democrats = Let's kill more babies and ensure that future generations can keep killing babies. There - no apocryphal skills needed at all.

If you don't believe that the Bible is the word of God and has no truth in it then every reference to it mythical! My guess is the reporter is not a believing Jew or a Christian so any reference to the historical truth in the Bible is nonsense any just a myth! The Washington Post is anti Jew and Christian so no surprise about this being spewed on our National Thanksgiving Day!

Another factor that a lot of us considered: Despite personal faults, Donald Trump is not evil. Hillary Clinton was and remains the embodiment of evil. Easy choice, and the Democrat Party grows more Godless by the day.

I believe that Trump was helped by God. How else can one explain all the fury from the Left not sticking to him during the campaign and after for the past almost three years? Plus he has also moved elements of God's plan forward, like our embassy in Jerusalem, among other things. The Left has staked their eternal lives on there being no Higer Power than themselves, and like the foolish during Noah's time, they will ignore reality at their own peril. In fact, there is reference to 'as in the days of Noah' so shall the end times be. If we aren't already there, we are on the beginnings of the end journey. The crazy is sure ramping up like maybe God has already turned them over to their baser instincts. Just remember what Jesus had to say about persecution. Whatever we mortals face, He faced first, and from the whole world of that era. Stay strong, and keep your faith even stronger.

You can be absolutely CERTAIN (and I have only read the headline) that ANY article in the CommiePost "explaining" anything about Trump will be at least two things: 1) It will involve hating on Trump and hating on the people who voted for him. 2) it will NOT be factual.

Good Kind David was from his youth up a ''man after God's own heart.' The message is that David wasn't good by his own goodness, he was only good when God was overseeing his work. God uses broken vessels to show us HIS glory and his might (and now any of our own). I would be shocked if anyone in the media could understand that.

Nice bigoted article claiming Christians subscribe to some ancient belief the vast majority (other than an assistant professors at an unknown college in Iowa) knows about. And David wasn’t just “sexually impure.” He was a murderer. And God punished him for his transgressions if you read about his family life and reign.

OBERLIN — Student groups at Oberlin College recently put a memorial commemorating Bahaa Abu el-Atta, a senior commander from the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad, after he and his wife were killed in an attack by Israel Defense Forces. According to reporting from The Associated Press, Israel targeted and killed the leader in a rocket strike on Nov. 12. It’s reported that Abu el-Atta died with his wife while they slept in their home in eastern Gaza. The strike then set off the heaviest fighting in months between the militant group and Israel.

In summary terms, Freeman’s “Episode #70” reveals that (1) security protections in voting machines were disabled, (2) penetration and manipulation of actual vote tabulations was and is possible, and (3) evidence already exists that votes were surreptitiously, electronically manipulated to change election results.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found evidence that an FBI lawyer manipulated a key investigative document related to the FBI's secretive surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser--enough to change the substantive meaning of the document, according to multiple reports. The show-stopping development comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News that Horowitz's comprehensive report on allegations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant abuse against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page will be released on Dec. 9.

Two of the nation’s last three presidents won the presidency in the Electoral College, even though they lost the popular vote nationwide. In 2000, Al Gore outpolled George W. Bush by more than 540,000 votes but lost in the Electoral College, 271–266. Sixteen years later, Hillary Clinton tallied almost 3 million more votes than Donald Trump but lost decisively in the Electoral College, 306–232. And, as a recent New York Times poll suggested, the 2020 election could very well again deliver the presidency to the loser of the popular vote.

I tried to swim up, toward the light, but found that my own boat blocked my way to safety. Doing my best not to panic, I swam down and away before finally coming up for air a few yards downriver. I clambered onto the dock, relieved to have found safety, but I was disturbed
