“All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head.”
— Ps 22:7
Mockery was a great ingredient in our Lord’s woe. Judas mocked Him in the garden; the chief priests and scribes laughed Him to scorn; Herod set Him at nought; the servants and the soldiers jeered at Him, and brutally insulted Him; Pilate and his guards ridiculed His royalty; and on the tree all sorts of horrid jests and hideous taunts were hurled at Him. Ridicule is always hard to bear, but when we are in intense pain it is so heartless, so cruel, that it cuts us to the quick. Imagine the Saviour crucified, racked with anguish far beyond all mortal guess, and then picture that motley multitude, all wagging their heads or thrusting out the lip in bitterest contempt of one poor suffering victim! Surely there must have been something more in the crucified One than they could see, or else such a great and mingled crowd would not unanimously have honoured Him with such contempt. Was it not evil confessing, in the very moment of its greatest apparent triumph, that after all it could do no more than mock at that victorious goodness which was then reigning on the cross? O Jesus, “despised and rejected of men,” how couldst Thou die for men who treated Thee so ill? Herein is love amazing, love divine, yea, love beyond degree. We, too, have despised Thee in the days of our unregeneracy, and even since our new birth we have set the world on high in our hearts, and yet Thou bleedest to heal our wounds, and diest to give us life. O that we could set Thee on a glorious high throne in all men’s hearts! We would ring out Thy praises over land and sea till men should as universally adore as once they did unanimously reject.
Thy creatures wrong Thee, O Thou sovereign Good!
Thou art not loved, because not understood:
This grieves me most, that vain pursuits beguile
Ungrateful men, regardless of Thy smile.

Ps 22

22 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?Why are you so far from saving me,so far from the words of my groaning? 2 O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,by night, and am not silent.
3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;you are the praise of Israel. 4 In you our fathers put their trust;they trusted and you delivered them. 5 They cried to you and were saved;in you they trusted and were not disappointed.
6 But I am a worm and not a man,scorned by men and despised by the people. 7 All who see me mock me;they hurl insults, shaking their heads: 8 “He trusts in the Lord;let the Lord rescue him.Let him deliver him,since he delights in him.”
9 Yet you brought me out of the womb;you made me trust in youeven at my mother’s breast. 10 From birth I was cast upon you;from my mother’s womb you have been my God. 11 Do not be far from me,for trouble is nearand there is no one to help.
12 Many bulls surround me;strong bulls of Bashan encircle me. 13 Roaring lions tearing their preyopen their mouths wide against me. 14 I am poured out like water,and all my bones are out of joint.My heart has turned to wax;it has melted away within me. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;you lay me in the dust of death. 16 Dogs have surrounded me;a band of evil men has encircled me,they have pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I can count all my bones;people stare and gloat over me. 18 They divide my garments among themand cast lots for my clothing.
19 But you, O Lord, be not far off;O my Strength, come quickly to help me. 20 Deliver my life from the sword,my precious life from the power of the dogs. 21 Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;save me from the horns of the wild oxen.
22 I will declare your name to my brothers;in the congregation I will praise you. 23 You who fear the Lord, praise him!All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! 24 For he has not despised or disdainedthe suffering of the afflicted one;he has not hidden his face from himbut has listened to his cry for help.
25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;before those who fear you will I fulfill my vows. 26 The poor will eat and be satisfied;they who seek the Lord will praise him — may your hearts live forever! 27 All the ends of the earthwill remember and turn to the Lord,and all the families of the nationswill bow down before him, 28 for dominion belongs to the Lordand he rules over the nations.
29 All the rich of the earth will feast and worship;all who go down to the dust will kneel before him — those who cannot keep themselves alive. 30 Posterity will serve him;future generations will be told about the Lord. 31 They will proclaim his righteousnessto a people yet unborn — for he has done it.
NIV

While driving home this morning from running a few errands I caught a sermon on the “Real Lord’s Prayer”, in John 17 so I thought I’d check it out again.

John 17

17 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:
“Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
6 “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name — the name you gave me — so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: 23 I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
NIV

God bless America and you.

What if I fall?

Nice.

Cristian Mihai

fly

“What if I fall?” 
“Oh my darling, what if you fly?”

Do you ever ask yourself if you like the person you are? If you are who you’ve always wanted to be? Do you know who you want to be?

To be honest, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I realized who I really wanted to be. I want to be that guy who tells people they can fly. I want to see the magic they have stored up in their hearts for so long. And I want to make them see it, I want to make them use it. Because, truth be told, falling is just another way to fly.

Are alleged Rockville rapists Unaccompanied Alien Children?

Good question.
“Were the pair (one from Guatemala and the other from El Salvador), who are behind bars in Maryland for dragging a 14-year-old girl into a boys bathroom and raping her considered ‘refugees’ by the Obama Administration that would have been in charge of them if they turned themselves in at the border as part of the flood of ‘children’ that invaded our border for years during the Obama presidency, so-called UACs?”

Refugee Resettlement Watch

That is the question I have about the story you can’t possibly have missed over the last day or two.

Were the pair (one from Guatemala and the other from El Salvador), who are behind bars in Maryland for dragging a 14-year-old girl into a boys bathroom and raping her considered ‘refugees’ by the Obama Administration that would have been in charge of them if they turned themselves in at the border as part of the flood of ‘children’ that invaded our border for years during the Obama presidency, so-called UACs?

Questions abound! Is he older than 18? Did he arrive among the waves of so-called ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children? Was he in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement or one of its contractors? And, of course, why had he not been deported? Did MoCo, MD sheriff protect him?

Keep an eye out for any news about whether they…

Hawaii: Muslim Brotherhood-backed imam dictating US refugee policy

Good post, thanks.

Refugee Resettlement Watch

… instead of banning the Brotherhood, the U.S. is letting a Brotherhood-backed imam dictate U.S. refugee and visa policy.

(John Guandolo)

The Hawaiian judge (a personal friend of Obama) might have issued the order, but the drive to stop Trump’s travel and refugee admissions pause comes from Egyptian imam Ismail Elshikh.

Egyptian imam Ismail Elshikh is a co-plaintiff in case blocking Trump’s refugee pause.

See our previous two posts on Hawaii,here and here.

This is a must-read story from Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:

The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trump’s revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration.

Sick to death of the politics of healthcare.

I’m so sick of the politics, hysteria, hypocrisy from the left and the right about this.
The Republicans screwed up by not having something ready to go after bitching about it for all theses years. They said they tried but Harry Reid blocked it all the way and I for one believed them and I’m sure he did. Sure Obama would have never signed anything they did but they should of had something ready to go.

Ted Cruz was my guy but once Mr Trump was the nominee I supported and voted for him. The more I watch and learn about him the more I support him. I truly believe he loves this country and wants what’s best for it and is willing to do what it takes. Anyone with just a little common sense or objectivity could see this. I didn’t like or vote for Obama but when he became the president I was willing to wait and see how he did thinking maybe he wouldn’t be that bad. Boy, was I wrong. Once I saw what he was doing and how he was governing I was not willing any more to give him the benefit of the doubt. The damage that man did to this country will take years to fix and it appears he’s still working on it behind the scenes but that’s another story. Eventually we will get things cleaned up. Nonetheless we made it through and we did it right and we voted to make a change. Now we have to do the same thing again. That’s how it works folks and it doesn’t happen overnight.

President Trump has always said he wanted it to be a smooth transition of Healthcare. So doing it in stages like they are talking about makes sense. I believe the CBO does have it wrong. They got it wrong on Obama care, why would they all of a sudden get it right now. The dems forced this crap on us, didn’t even try to work with anyone on it and to say they lied about would be a understatement. Pelosi,(“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”) and Schumer are a joke and just like the rest of left their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Pelosi’s ObamaCare tweet gets unintended response

Bill O’Reilly | How the ObamaCare brawl affects you

BREAKING TONIGHT 3/14/17 Speaker Ryan: This is the replacement bill we all ran on

THE O’REILLY FACTOR 3/14/17 The continued debate over replacing ObamaCare

I don’t know, go figure. I do know this stuff is crazy and there is no way you’re going to get the straight story from the “Lamestream Media”. Hopefully after President Trump gets things done and he continues to keep his promises like none of the other politicians have done and “Make America Great Again” we can get back to the way things are supposed to be and the government will get out of our business and just do what they are hired to do.

Let’s give it and the President a chance, it hasn’t even been 60 days yet. Get a grip people.

God bless America and you.

Maxine Waters Implicates Barack Obama in the Spying Scandal

No doubt.
“Maxine Waters is the gift that keeps on giving. At the same time, Waters once again reminds of just how confident Progressives are that neither they or Barack Obama will be brought up on charges of treason resulting from their conspiring against the Republic and a sitting president.”

This is crap. This needs to stop. VA waste.

This is ridiculous and shameful. With all the money this country wastes in the government, on welfare abuse, immigration, left leaning policies, refugees, the UN, this should not be. This should be one of the most smooth running organizations we have, we owe it to the Veterans. This makes me sick.

From the famed Sharyl Attkisson. Thank you. “A medical doctor-turned-whistleblower was part of a team that reviewed veterans’ medical files to see if they’re entitled to compensation for Agent Orange injuries. He says he caught reviewers pushing through files at an improbable rate, failing to give them a proper review and often denying vets their due. The company, a V.A. contractor, denies it.” Continue reading

General Flynn. Liberal hypocrisy and the lonney tunes on the left.

The libs are losing their minds and are probably going to have a nervous breakdown before these four years are up. No one in thier right mind or anyone with an ounce of common sense can deny these people are on a mission to utterly destroy President Trump and sabotage anything he tries to do, or has it has been called a “Political Jihad”.

This is a pretty good article from The American Thinker about the hypocrisy I just read and shared.

“Besides the Department of Justice, the Central Intelligence Agency, and perhaps former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn himself, the latest name to emerge in the spreading swamp of connivers who did Flynn in this week is none other than the Obama administration’s former National Security Council Deputy Advisor for Strategic Communications, Ben Rhodes.”

“Glenn Greenwald has pointed out that Democrats have made it an ugly “narrative” (Rhodes’ specialty) to accuse anyone who speaks with the Russians as a Kremlin agent, and he cited the hypocrisy of Bill Clinton’s still-unexplained visit to Moscow during his student days. The left and its media minions, led by Rhodes, have seized on the idea of talking with the Russians as somehow dangerous, treasonous, and absolutely beyond the pale.

It’s the height of hypocrisy that Rhodes, Mister Dialogue himself, to now take to plotting political ruin for anyone caught in ‘dialogue’ with the Russians. Apparently, dialogue with America’s enemies and rivals is only acceptable … if Rhodes does it.” Read more here. The Hypocrisy of Ben Rhodes

All the talk about “Fake News” check out what the Dem’s fell for if you haven’t heard yet. From The American Thinker again.

“Democratic Reps. Nancy Leosi and Elijah Cummings issued statements calling for an investigation into the activities of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, citing a tweet that suggested  other people were involved in the incident. The New York Times also cited the tweet in their reporting.

The problem for Pelosi, Cummings, and the Times is that the tweet originated on a fake Michael Flynn Twitter account.”  Read more here. Reps. Pelosi, Cummings, and NY Times all fall for tweet from fake Flynn account

Here’s a collection of some great interviews I watched last night. Don’t get me wrong Flynn was stupid and the President was right for firing him but there’s a much bigger problem here and the lib’s are behind it all.

Kellyanne Conway Weighs on Micheal Flynn Resignation & The Media – Hannity

Brit Hume: Trump seeing resistance from inside and outside

Attacking The Trump Administration – Hannity

I posted a video from Dave Rubin a couple days ago on social media, you can check it out here. “WHY I LEFT THE LEFT” and Tucker Carlson interviewed him on his show last night. Even the left has had it with the left.

It’s being reported that Obama is behind a lot of this crap too. Here’s a few articles on it. How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency

Report: Obama’s Organizing for Action Is Training Army of Agitators to Sabotage Trump (Video)

Well that’s it, hope you enjoyed and maybe got a new perspective on things. God bless America and you.

Epic Snowflake Social Justice Warrior Meltdowns Are Escalating As The Media Continues To Push Their ‘Fake’ Headlines

More and more snowflake meltdowns are occurring throughout The U.S.

Before detailing some of the latest complete insanity being shown across America by snowflakes, cupcakes and so-called social justice warriors, we would like to point out the correlation between the propaganda being shoved down the throats of America…

It’s the law. @Potus , “We THE People” have every right to block Immigrants.

Interesting, a friend e-mailed this to me. Thought I’d share it.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during the Presidential

campaign,  one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone

in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?
I did not know of this Act until recently, but it has been a law for 
almost 65 years.
Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not
most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington DC do

not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States,
Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S.

should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic

groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).
The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things,
being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.
Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such
legislation, and our  President called such a prohibition on immigration

unconstitutional.

As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that
the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on

several occasions.

Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality
Act of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions

by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens

or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to
the interests of the United States.
The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall
deem necessary,  suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens

as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the

entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”
Who do you suppose last used this process?
Why it was president Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979,
to keep Iranians out of the United States.
But he actually did more.   He
made ALL Iranian students, already in
the United States, check in with the government. And then he
deported a bunch of them.
Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of
15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.
So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received
from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama
Administration?
Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act
also requires that   an
“applicant for immigration must be of good
moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”
Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to
swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims

should be refused immigration to OUR country.
