Deep Thought: Should “we” get involved in politics?

You seem interested in what people want, but what about what God wants? You just got Jesus Juked! Bobby and John explore what, why, and how not to apply Jesus Jukes into your conversations. We chit-chat about a heartwarming story from Red Lake Falls and a touch a little more into Christians and politics. Our segment today: Would you rather – Jesus edition.

This was supposed to be episode 5, but recording for episode 4 didn’t happen, so 5 now became 4. Which means, we skipped a step in John’s Coffee Corner, but trust me, it’s still good.

Wayne says there are 5 wrong views of Christian influence on politics, and one right view.
This week he explores his first ‘wrong’ view; – Government should compel religion.”

How Do We ‘Respect’ Authority We Disagree With?
POSTED ONNOVEMBER 14, 20166 MINUTE READSCOTT SAULS relevantmagazine.com
“..But while we can (and should) feel strongly about different political and social issues, as Christians, we’re called to respond to authority with respect. Rather than bucking the system, sticking it to the man, insulting or talking back, Christians are taught in the Bible to respond to authority with honor. This starts with honoring God, who holds authority over the whole universe….

What About Government and Politics?
The Bible also says Christians should honor, respect, pray for and obey authorities in positions of government. This can be challenging for all of us, especially during a heated political season like the one we are in now. And yet, because politics are so heated, the season we are in presents Christians with a unique opportunity to live counter-culturally to the typical partisan spin and vitriol…

5. Ask Yourself the Most Important Question
In consideration of Matthew and Simon living in community together under Jesus, we should wrestle with the following question:

For whom do I feel greater affection?
1. People who agree my politics but don’t share my faith? Or…
2. People who share my faith but don’t agree with my politics?..”

What’s up with…?! Post-elections Hate

Mich. students chant ‘build the wall’ in viral video USA TODAY Katrease Stafford (Thursday, November 10th 2016)
“…ROYAL OAK, Mich. — A viral video of middle school students at a Michigan school shouting “build the wall” during a lunch hour Wednesday has sparked outrage across social media, leading some to demand that school district officials take action.

The video, which has nearly 2 million views and more than 45,000 shares, shows a group of students leading the chant in the cafeteria of Royal Oak Middle School. The woman who posted the short video on Facebook, Dee Perez-Scott, said in a brief caption that the incident happened Wednesday.

“The taunts, the ‘Build that Wall’ with such bullying power and hate from children to children,” wrote Perez-Scott. “Just horrifying!”..”

This is sample of why “us” adults need to be careful on how we express our “political views” at home. Kids are watching our reaction to this political election and everything we do. I have a “young” teenager friend that came to my house wanting to bike one day as he shared how he was tired of his parents watching the “political debates”. Then another “friend” (college age) express similar feelings on how he was “tired” of his parents watching it too.

-Pro: Trump

Post-election racism makes students uneasy Solvejg Wastvedt · Nov 10, 2016 .mprnews.org
“The day after the election, messages including “whites only”, “Trump Train” and the n-word were scrawled on a bathroom door at Maple Grove Senior High.

The district reacted by starting an investigation and contacting police. And the next morning, a parent told MPR News that her daughter found students smiling and handing out cookies, along with messages of acceptance posted on the wall.

• NewsCut: Maple Grove kids fight back against the racists

Reactions to Tuesday’s presidential election are playing out in schools around the state, with tension reported in some cases as students bring differing views to class.

The smiles and cookies after the racist graffiti in Maple Grove were a step toward healing divisions — but they certainly won’t solve a problem that is not unique to Maple Grove.

Students around the state are struggling with divisions that mirror the country’s deeply divided voting-age adults.

East across the Mississippi River at Spring Lake Park High School, Principal Jane Stevenson wrote a Facebook post about a report of “disrespectful, inappropriate and racially offensive graffiti” on a girls’ bathroom wall. Pictures of it made the rounds on social media, and Stevenson condemned the act.

Stevenson said the police are involved and the district is investigating.

In an interview before word of the graffiti spread to media, Spring Lake Park band teacher Nora Tycast said she hadn’t seen an increase in racist incidents post-election, she said the school routinely struggles with racial tension.

“My colleagues and I see just a wide gamut of reactions from students, students that are really sad and scared, and students that are really excited and pleased,” Tycast said. “So on Wednesday morning we saw a lot of fist pumping, and really kids really feeling free to express their excitement and kind of their pride in the country in a bunch of different ways. And we also had some students that were a lot more subdued.”

It’s unclear how many incidents similar to the racist graffiti in Maple Grove there may be.

The Minnesota Department of Education says it’s received three calls about incidents of harassment in schools. MPR News looked into a report of white students intimidating Latino students at Jefferson High School in Bloomington. The district says it’s investigated the report and denies that physical intimidation happened.

But shy of explicit incidents, it’s undeniable that some students are dealing with anxiety. Administrators in several districts sent letters home encouraging civility and denouncing racism and harassment.

Amy Hewett-Olatunde, who teaches English Language Learners at LEAP High School in St. Paul, said all her students are immigrants or refugees, and many of them are fearful.

“Many of them think that they need to think about where to go, if they go home. If they don’t have a place to go home to, what should they do,” she said. “Their parents are also extremely fearful of what may happen in terms of retaliation.”

Higher Ground Academy, also in St. Paul, has a primarily African-American population. Teacher Catherine Eisele said she’s sensed fear among her students since the primaries.

“I had three kids come up to me yesterday like, ‘Am I going to get deported?’ like quietly in the halls, not in front of everybody,” she said.

But on Thursday in civics class, Eisele taught her students how the American government works — she’s teaching them how to debate ideas.

Her students have been split throughout the election on policies. For Lyla, a 10th grader, President-elect Donald Trump’s views don’t worry her too much.

“It’s not like he’s going to make every single decision,” she said. “He has a cabinet behind him, they’re going to help him make good decisions.”

Another 10th grader, Adar, feels differently about Trump, saying she’s afraid of an increase in hate crimes following the election.

“I am worried about his supporters,” she said. “Racism has existed, you know, for a long time in our history, but I feel like he brought all the racists out, all the sexists out.”

But Adar said she’s not worried about being deported. She’s been paying attention in civics class.

“I know my rights”, she said.

RAW: Violent anti-Trump protest near Inauguration

Violence flares in Washington during Trump inauguration By Jonathan Landay and Scott Malone | WASHINGTON Politics | Sat Jan 21, 2017 | 7:58am EST reuters.com
“…
Black-clad activists among hundreds of demonstrators protesting Donald Trump’s swearing-in on Friday clashed with police a few blocks from the White House, in an outburst of violence rare for an inauguration.

At least 217 people were arrested in the melees, police said.

The burst of civil disorder followed a fierce presidential campaign that ended in a stunning victory for Republican Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8 and left the country divided.

Many of Trump’s supporters traveled to Washington to cheer their new president on Inauguration Day. Tens of thousands of detractors are expected to march peacefully on Saturday.

In the violence, knots of activists in black clothes and masks threw rocks and bottles at officers wearing riot gear, who responded with volleys of tear gas and stun grenades as a helicopter hovered low overhead. …

Protesters and police said the violent activists were acting independently of organized opposition to Trump.

The Disrupt J20 group on Twitter said its anger was not directed only at Trump, and that it would also have demonstrated had Democrat Hillary Clinton won the election last November.

Not far from the White House, Bob Hrifko, a member of the Bikers for Trump group, said he was struck in the face with an aluminum chair when he tried to intervene in a scuffle involving police and protesters.

“We need more order. This ain’t right,” said Hrifko, who was bleeding from a cut under his eye.

Community Dialogue: Presidential Elections-Who did you vote for and why?

Many people were open on social network about sharing their “feelings” on the results of the recent U.S. Presidential election this week. It saddens me of how people can get “profane” on their reaction to the results from both sides. I decided to do this blog to help form a “peaceful” dialogue below and to help understand each others’ background-views on “why” they voted the way they did. Instead of jumping to conclusions and labeling one another just because of who they voted, let’s better understand each others’ background and reason..

I’m open to admit that I voted “3rd Party”, which I have in the past 3 Presidential elections for various reasons (e.g. hypocrisy). As a “Christian”, I believe no party is more “Christian” than the other. Some might disagree with me with this statement, so feel free to reply below and I’ll share my personal reasons for each “platform issue”. There are some values I’m personally “for” in both parties, but same with “against”. I even took a personal online survey (similar to this one-> Where Do You Fit in the Political Typology? ) that put me in the “middle”, which is why I voted 3rd Party.

Republican PartyDonald Trump

Why did people vote for Donald Trump? Voters explain theguardian.com
“…I believe Trump will be a good president because he knows how to make deals, deals that will make America prosperous again. We need to bring our nation together. I like the fact that all three branches are controlled by the same party, now we can get down to the business of straightening out our country, taking care of our people, our veterans, getting the economy moving again and repealing Obamacare…”

Hillary Clinton Is a Dangerous Choice for Voters Against Abortion (A Response to Eric Sapp)
By Dr. Richard D. Land , CP Exclusive Oct 3, 2016 | 7:23 AM christianpost.com
“..Yes, Hillary once advocated that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” However, Mrs. Clinton is accused of supporting late-term abortion because she supports abortion of “precious unborn children” under any circumstances up to the moment of full birth. Speaking of “reproductive rights,” Mrs. Clinton’s preferred euphemism for abortion, she declared that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.” That sounds chillingly like government coercion to abandon deeply held pro-life religious convictions…”
Obama’s Culture of Life: The Abortion Rate Has Fallen 13% Under This President By Sarah Jones on Mon, Feb 3rd, 2014 at 10:28 am politicususa.com
“..Abortion rate peaked in 1981 under former President Reagan (though he had just taken office), and is at the lowest rate since 1973 as of 2011, under President Obama. The abortion rate had been falling until it “stalled” between 2005 and 2008, under former President Bush.

According to a new study by Guttmacher, the abortion rate fell by 13% under Obama. Declines were the steepest in the Midwest and West, and “less steep yet noteworthy” in the South and Northeast (emphasis mine):

This is what happens when a party uses an emotional issue as a get out the vote tactic but does not really care about actually ending abortion at all. After all, even if they make abortion illegal it will still go on, it will just be unsafe and harm many women. Republicans don’t want the issue of abortion to go away, because it is one of the few ways they can get their evangelical base out to vote. They had better hope the base never catches on to the truth.

This also suggests that Democrats and Obama are not necessarily “pro abortion” as the Republicans like to charge. Quite the opposite. While they are pro freedom for women to make their own medical decisions, they also seek to help women avoid these tough decisions by making birth control accessible. If we want to deal in reality, it’s Republicans who are “pro abortion”, as their policies lead to more abortions, not less.

So here we have President Obama’s Culture of Life, which fits in nicely next to his badge for being fiscally responsible, getting Osama bin Laden, and getting the stock market to record levels. “

#ClintonNation: This is why Americans are voting for Hillary Clinton Rick Hampson , USA TODAY 12:28 p.m. EDT July 25, 2016 usatoday.com
“..Many, however, regard Clinton as more than a gender pioneer, and more than the better candidate this year. “She has probably the most experience of any man or woman ever nominated,” declared Rod Washington, 40, a Monroe, La., public relations professional.

She couldn’t be more qualified, said Jeanne Cumby, 54, of Asheville, N.C., “unless she’d been to the moon.”

To sing her praises, supporters recite her résumé — Yale Law School, children’s advocate, first lady, U.S. senator, 2008 presidential candidate, secretary of state. “Hillary has been there, done that, and wrote the book on a lot of things,” said the Rev. Dennis Ross Sr., 56, a Memphis pastor…”

eight-lies-progressives-were-told-about-what-will-happen-if-trump-wins, inquisitr.com
“..I’m so angry right now. A lot of good-hearted progressives are needlessly trembling with fear today, and it’s all the fault of the despicable tactics run for a year and a half by the amoral Clinton campaign. There were many lies that were told to frighten Americans into voting in support of Hillary, concocted by the neoliberal think tank and reported as fact by the corporate media (with at least some modicum of moderation and accountability) and by paid internet shills (with absolutely none). They brutalized the American psyche with baseless fearmongering, and people are still suffering from it for no good reason…

1. “The Supreme Court will be set back 30 years and Roe vs. Wade will be repealed if you don’t support Hillary Clinton!”

No, it won’t. People made this argument over and over again as though America has never had a Republican president before. As Commander-in-Chief, an American president has a lot more power over U.S. foreign policy than they do over domestic policy. Despite Trump’s assurances to his Republican base that he will help make America the only major country to ban abortion, he simply doesn’t have the ability to do this…

3. “Trump will start World War Three if you don’t elect Hillary Clinton!”

Trump has, in fact, run the least hawkish presidential campaign in recent Republican history, pushing a platform of non-interventionism and diplomacy. Instead of going to war with Russia or starting a proxy war in Syria, he wants to collaborate with Russia to fight terrorism, and he’s said North Korea is China’s problem. He’s surely said some gross things, and he’s surely done some unethical things, but he’s never killed anyone and seems to possess a normal human being’s respect for the value of human life. That’s a trait we haven’t seen in a U.S. president for a long, long time. He wants to make deals and “get along with everybody,” a position he reiterated in his victory speech last night.

4. “You’ll bring fascism/Nazism to America if you don’t elect Hillary Clinton!”…

6. Trump will immediately deport 11 million immigrants unless you vote for Hillary Clinton!”

Trump walked back on this promise months ago and now espouses a position much like that of Obama, who has deported more immigrants than any other president without any complaint from the Democrats. Donald Trump is a WWE Hall-of-Famer who knows how to work a crowd and get people on his side; he’s not an idiot. Nobody’s going to wage a war on 11 million people in a country of 319 million. Here’s an article from The Atlantic about Trump’s actual position now that he’s got the Republicans on his side…”

“Party representing the poor”

-Origin/History

Why Did the Black Community Leave the GOP for the Democratic Party?
Sep. 7, 2012 2:46pm Tiffany Gabbay theblaze.com
“..The Democratic Party has been stellar at spinning a revisionist history where the righteous among their ranks fought “tirelessly” to further the cause of Civil Rights, women’s rights – indeed human rights – throughout time immemorial.

In fairness, progressives have had one lynchpin to their argument: Then-President Lyndon B. Johnson did sign into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The fact that the crux of the bill was drafted and pushed through Congress by Republican Senator Everett Dirksen, and the fact that LBJ staunchly opposed the passing of Civil Rights legislation in the decades leading up to his presidency, bears little relevance on the left’s present-day narrative.

Likewise, the Ku Klux Klan – the disgraced racist organization to which even Democratic President Harry Truman belonged — was founded by Democrats and, in a sense, operated at one point as the de facto militant branch of the party.

-Broken Promises


The Democrats’ broken promises The Obama administration has disillusioned many of its progressive supporters in record time

By Phil Gasper isreview.org
“..Democrats current political fortunes are not due to a significant shift in political consciousness to the right, but to their failure to live up to their campaign promises and the consequent disillusionment of many of their supporters.

The official unemployment rate is stuck at over 9 percent, with the figure at 16 or 17 percent once people who have given up looking for work or who are involuntarily working part time are included. The administration’s stimulus package at the beginning of 2009 helped stave off an even worse economic crisis, but was both too small and too heavily weighted toward tax cuts to significantly impact employment levels. Of course there were significant political obstacles from Republicans and conservative Democrats opposing a bigger stimulus, but instead of challenging these head on, Obama began by proposing a package at least one-third too small and then watched it get whittled down even further.
..

Even the promise to remove combat troops from Iraq has turned out to be a fraud. While troop levels are being reduced to 50,000, an anonymous administration official admitted that the troops that remained would continue to engage in combat missions. And in addition to the U.S. troops, a further 85,000 private military contractors—many of them nothing more than highly paid mercenaries—will also remain in Iraq. As conservative journalist Eric Margolis noted in the Toronto Sun,…”

…The Hypocrisy of the Two Party Establishment


The two political parties and their mainstream media love to use such terms and labels and even though they use them incorrectly, they have convinced millions of people to blindly go along with what they say without question. The irony is, they are complete hypocrites!

The two political parties use terms like left-wing, right-wing, conservative, liberal, etc., but the irony is that they never even live up to their own self-proclaimed labels. Rarely if at all, do they ever follow their own glossy party platform! But as long as the mainstream media has conditioned their blind followers to fear the “other” party winning as the end of the world, most will continue to vote for either of the two parties. (Until of course, a strong enough opposition finally breaks them)..”

The wimpy GOP Congress- Republicans are breaking their promises to conservatives washingtontimes.com
“..Virtually every Republican running in 2014 promised to do everything he could to repeal Obamacare, beginning with its defunding, which a GOP majority in Congress could deliver. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had pledged repeatedly that he, too, would defund and repeal it. After the election, a majority of Americans expected an end to this monstrosity.

However, when Republicans had their chance through defunding efforts, leadership buckled — if it had any intention in the first place to do anything, which is doubtful. Those election promises meant nothing when it came time to deliver. Mr. McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner have been absolutely useless in keeping the No. 1 promise the GOP made to voters in November.

Hypocrisy in Politics and Religion
10 February Hypocrisy in Politics and Religion – Dorothy Rowe philoagora.com
“When George Bush and Tony Blair departed the political stage, we hoped that the eight years of political liesand hypocrisy had come to an end. No more Weapons of Mass Destruction, no more God speaking directly to the president and telling him to go to war, no more Blair excusing himself by saying, ‘I believed that what I was doing was right.’Believing that you are right does not make what you do right. Hitler believed that what he did was right. Blair’s successor Gordon Brown might not have Tony Blair’s charm, but he did seem to tell the truth, while Obama, we hope, will save the world. People welcomed the new pope, Benedict XVI, while overlookingthe fact that he had been in the Hitler Youth. They assumed that, like many young Germans, while he outwardly conformed, he knew that what the Nazis taught was wrong. However, when he reinstated Bishop Richard Williamson who had claimed that only about 200,000 to 300,000 Jews had died in the Holocaust, many people had to reconsider their assumption…”

Hillary WASN’T LYING! Bosnia gunfire footage discovered…


Clinton under fire: Video contradicts Hillary’s claim she ran from sniper shots in Bosnia By DAVID GARDNER dailymail.co.uk Last updated at 14:38 26 March 2008
“…But last night her boast came back to haunt her – as video footage of the occasion showed her waving, smiling, apparently untroubled by gunfire and accompanied by her daughter Chelsea.

“I remember landing under sniper fire,” Mrs Clinton, 60, had said in recalling the March, 1996 Bosnia visit.

“There was supposed to be some sort of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Hillary Clinton says ‘epidemic’ of fake news puts ‘lives at risk’

Hillary Clinton has spoken out against the “epidemic” of fake news in one of her first public addresses since losing the US Presidential election.

Mrs Clinton said: “The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year, it’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences.

“This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days.

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly.””

Democratic heads roll after video shows agitators planted at Trump rallies By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Tuesday, October 18, 2016 washingtontimes.com
“..Two top Democratic strategists have exited the presidential campaign after explosive undercover videos showed them discussing voter fraud and their roles in planting paid agitators at campaign events for Republican candidate Donald Trump.

Robert Creamer, founder of Democracy Advocates and the husband of Rep. Janice D. Schakowsky, Illinois Democrat, stepped down from the campaign Tuesday, a day after Scott Foval was fired from his post as national field director of Americans United for Change.

Mr. Trump, who has long complained of a “rigged” election system, said at a Tuesday rally in Colorado that the video released by the conservative group Project Veritas Action confirmed his suspicions of Democrat-sponsored political chicanery.

“The protesters are paid a lot of money by the [Democratic National Committee], and they kept saying, ‘I wonder why those people are here, because they never seem to have much on their mind other than stand up and protest,’” Mr. Trump told a crowd in Colorado Springs. “And yesterday it came out, but it was barely covered by the media. But it’s all over the internet. They were busted.”

Brad Woodhouse, Americans United for Change president, said in a late-Monday statement that Mr. Foval “is no longer associated with Americans United for Change.”

He insisted that the Democratic political consulting firm has “always operated according to the highest ethical and legal standards.”..”

In this explosive new video from Project Veritas Action, a Democratic dirty tricks operative unwittingly provides a dark money trail to the DNC and Clinton campaign. The video documents violence at Trump rallies that is traced to the Clinton campaign and the DNC through a process called birddogging.

A shady coordinated communications chain between the DNC, Clinton Campaign, Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC (Priorities) and other organizations are revealed. A key Clinton operative is on camera saying, “It doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherfucker.”

The media is selling fear of beheadings to the public. Syria is destroyed and so is Iraq, principally at the hands of the U.S. military machine and western partners. Oil pipelines and weapons deals are the reasons for this monstrosity that knows no end in its brutal occupation. The U.S. sold arms to Nouri al-Maliki to back his corrupt regime and backed his forces with drone strikes against ISIS, even though the American CIA also previously supported jihadist Sunni rebels, including the ISIS—procuring weapons for these groups, to attack the government of Bashar al-Assad.

CNN International Under Fire For Refusing To Air Bahrain Documentary, Accepting Funds From Government by Trisha Marczak mintpressnews.com
“…Journalists Scott Bronstein, Amber Lyon and Taryn Fixel were tasked with creating a mini-documentary on the civil unrest in Bahrain. What they discovered was far beyond what they had imagined, with on-the-ground footage revealing peaceful human rights activists being shot at and government officials denying that such had ever occurred. Yet their work was never aired to an international audience.

The documentary, “iRevolution,” told the story of the widespread violence sponsored by the government, a piece that painted a not-so-favorable picture of Bahraini officials. It was, as Lyon says, the truth.”

…Exposing the funding

In a Twitter post Wednesday, Lyon claims CNN was “caught taking money from oppressive regimes in exchange for coverage that ‘makes them look better..

It also includes criticism of Lyon in the response, claiming CNN International did not know she was there at first, because she didn’t follow CNN policy “when traveling to and reporting from areas in turmoil.”

Lyon isn’t buying it. Her Twitter feed Thursday was jam packed with references to Maddox, calling him out for attempting to ruin her reputation as a journalist and ignoring the assertion that he and his news organization are accepting funding from known dictators in exchange for coverage.

The CNN International response mentioned nothing about concerns over funding from the Bahraini government’s EDB….

This is the reason why I don’t trust mainstream news. It is all theater and it’s completely staged. I only use the news as a guide to get an idea of what is going on, and then I do further research myself.

You can start your own research by visiting my website http://www.patriotportal.yolasite.com

I also suggest reading the books of Edward Bernays to learn how the media and government fool the masses on an unprecedented scale.

This video is FAIR USE depicting an historical event. I encourage this video to be downloaded, and re-uploaded to other websites to get more people to see this.

Whether it be the Roman Catholic Church outlawing the personal possession and interpretation of the Bible over a thousand years ago, or the U.S. government classifying millions and millions of secret documents every single year, the ruling class has made it their top priority to control information throughout history; because if you can control information you can control public perception; and if you can control public perception you can control people’s interpretation of reality — which gives you tremendous power.

With the advent of the internet, however, this control has been dealt a fatal blow. Where once the people had to rely exclusively on the establishment for their news and understanding of the outside world, today we can research multiple perspectives, communicate internationally, and even be a source of news ourselves…
