Trump takes action against child trafficking foster care system, dealing huge blow to left-wing deep state pedophilia

Sunday, July 21, 2019 by: Ethan Huff

(Natural News) Back in February, President Trump quietly signed into law the “Family First Prevention Services Act” which, when it finally comes into effect on October 1, will greatly curtail abuses within the foster care system that facilitate the child sex trafficking and pedophilia rings operated undercover by the evil, left-wing deep state.

Family First will basically prioritize federal funding for orphan children to be able to stay with their families, close relatives, or family friends, if at all possible, as opposed to having them be sent to lucrative group homes with strangers, where they’re sometimes abused or even sold into sex slavery.

“With the Family First Prevention Services Act states, territories, and tribes with an approved Title IV-E plan have the option to use these funds for prevention services that would allow ‘candidates for foster care’ to stay with their parents or relatives,” reads a notice about the legislation and what it will entail that was recently published by the National Conference of State Legislatures.

“States will be reimbursed for prevention services for up to 12 months,” it adds. “A written, trauma-informed prevention plan must be created, and services will need to be evidence-based. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expects to release guidance on service eligibility before Oct. 1, 2018.”

Family First comes at a critical point in time when families and activists are really starting to speak out about the horrors they’ve observed or endured at the hands of Child Protective Services (CPS). As we’ve reported, some parents have had their children forcibly kidnapped and removed from their care by CPS agents on bogus charges, only to have those children end up being trafficked.

According to a guidance that was issued by Iowa’s Department of Human Services, Family First “will prevent the need for removal” of children by CPS “through evidence-based family preservation services,” which include mental health assessments, substance abuse treatment programs, and “in-home, parent skill-based programs that include parent education, and individual and family counseling.”

For more related news about CPS and how it functions as a child trafficking front, visit DeepState.news.

Why don’t liberals care that CPS is separating children from their families? And why aren’t they appreciative that President Trump is trying to do something about it?

One recent example of this involves Cynthia Abcug, whose autistic son Michael was reportedly abducted by CPS recently on accusations that his mother had somehow “misdiagnosed” him with autism.

Cynthia hasn’t seen her son Michael in two months, and she says she has no idea where he is or even who’s taking care of him. She was told by a tipster that CPS intentionally gave her the wrong case number for her son, and after obtaining the correct one, she learned that a judge had given authorization for Michael to be taken to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, from August 3-10.

“Abcug is concerned that Michael could be human-trafficked, or suffer seizures in the Florida heat,” Big League Politics reports about this dire situation.

“Abcug’s lawyer has fired off a response to the travel motion to Douglas County District Court in Colorado contesting the child’s authorization to travel out of state.”

You can keep up with the latest developments in Cynthia’s horrific saga of trying to get her son back from the CPS police state at her Twitter account.

There are many more similar such cases, none of which are being protested by the angry liberals who pretend to care about children being “separated” from their families, that you can read about at BigLeaguePolitics.com.  (Click to Source)

President Trump, moved by religious persecution victims’ plight, insists meeting go into overtime

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – With a meeting near its end and more than two dozen victims of global religious persecution about to be ushered out of the Oval Office, President Trump insisted that they stay longer so that he could listen to more of their testimonies and requests for help.

Twenty-seven people from 16 countries who had been or are persecuted for their faith gathered around the president’s desk on Wednesday. Some spoke briefly of their harrowing plights and others simply thanked President Trump for his administration’s efforts to promote and protect religious freedom.

Among the guests was Pastor Andrew Brunson, who languished in a Turkish jail before the Trump administration intervened to secure his freedom.

“What you have in common is each of you has suffered tremendously for your faith,” noted the President as he welcomed his guests to the Oval Office. “You’ve endured harassment, threats, attacks, trials, imprisonment, and torture.”

“Each of you has now become a witness to the importance of advancing religious liberty all around the world,” he said. “It’s about religious liberty.”

“In America, we’ve always understood that our rights come from God, not from government,” continued the President. “In our Bill of Rights, the first liberty is religious liberty. Each of us has the right to follow the dictates of our conscience and the demands of our religious conviction. We know that if people are not free to practice their faith, then all of the freedoms are at risk and, frankly, freedoms don’t mean very much.”

“That’s why Americans will never tire in our effort to defend and promote religious freedom,” said the President. “To me, it’s very important. It’s vital. It’s really vital.”

“You’ve been through a lot — more than most people could ever endure,” added the President. “It’s really an honor to be with you, and I will stand side by side with you forever.”

“Thank you for your leadership, standing up for humanity, standing up for religious groups and their rights,” said a man who survived the horrific Christchurch, New Zealand, mosque massacre, where 51 perished. “And God bless you. And God bless the United States.”

“Sir, I am from Bangladesh,” said one woman. “My request is: Please help us. We don’t want to leave our country. Just help, Mr. President. I have lost my home. They burned my home. They’ve taken my land.”

Ms. Zhang, a Falun Gong practitioner, told the President that her husband remains a prisoner for his faith in China. “And the forced organ harvesting still exists.”

“Mr. President, one to three million Uyghur population are locked up in concentration camps in China, including my father, who is now serving a life sentence. I haven’t seen him since 2013,” explained Ms. Ilham.

When President Trump asked her if she is able to communicate with her father, Ilham explained, “I haven’t heard about him since 2017, because that’s when the concentration camps started.”

“Anyone who goes to ask about anybody’s family members’ news will never make their way back to their own homes,” she added.

Esther Bitrus of Nigeria shook the President’s hand as she said, “I escaped from Boko Haram.”

Mr. Ju spoke of his family’s plight in North Korea, saying, “All of them, they are in political prison camp.”

“I don’t know where is; they just took [them] at the dawn,” because they are Christians, said Ju.  He also explained that his cousin’s family had been executed.

Among the last to speak was Nadia Murad, who received the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize for her work in helping women and children who are victims of abuse and human trafficking.

Murad told President Trump about her harrowing experience as a girl in Iraq: “When ISIS attack us in 2014, they killed six of my brothers. They killed my mom. They took me to captivity with my … sister-in-law, with all my sister and my nieces.”

“Today we have 3,000 Yazidi women and children in captivity,” she added.

During the course of the meeting, Pastor Paula White commended the President for his  courageous leadership. “I have watched, from day one and even before you took this office, you be a relentless fighter for people of all faiths and religious liberty.”

“We see it stateside — from you saying we can say ‘Merry Christmas’ again; to the DOJ passing laws that no other administration could pass to give high holy days to all religions to be able to take off of work and to honor that,” said White.

“So we thank you, President, for being the leader — the courageous leader to stand up not only in our nation, but countries all around, for all faith, of all people that we should have the practice and the right to practice our religion,” she added. (Click to Source)

Trump boosts bills to teach his favorite book — the Bible — in public schools

President Trump signaled his support on Monday for state bills that would allow public schools to teach courses in the Bible, which he once proclaimed was his favorite book.

Trump’s tweet came minutes after “Fox & Friends” aired a segment Monday morning on pending legislation in six states — Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia — that would allow Bible literacy courses to become a part of a public school education.

“Nothing beats the Bible,” Trump famously said on the campaign trail in 2015 — not even “The Art of the Deal.”

The Christian activists who crafted the template for inserting the Bible into public school curricula celebrated the president’s endorsement of the idea.

“We were excited to see it happen,” Steven Fitschen, president of the National Legal Foundation, told Yahoo News. “The model bill that we were involved with is for the state level, but we were excited to see him use his bully pulpit, so to speak.”

Fitschen said the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation — a nonprofit group formed by former Virginia Republican Congressman J. Randy Forbes to promote “restoring Judeo-Christian principles” — hired him to help draft the text of legislation that could withstand First Amendment challenges to teaching the Bible in schools.

“We looked at what was already in existence and tried to craft a model bill so we could eliminate any constitutional problems, so there could be a course that taught about Islam or Buddhism or any other religion. Many other schools already have comparative religion courses,” Fitschen said. “The reason we centered in on the Bible, the Old Testament and the New Testament, is the history of the country, how much of our idiom and our political framework, all these things that were biblically derived because of the historical situation with many of the early colonists.”

The American Civil Liberties Union blasted both the attempt to infuse Bible literacy courses in public schools and Trump’s support of it. Its concern is that, notwithstanding Fitschen’s self-proclaimed commitment to religious neutrality, in practice the courses could, at least in some states, amount to a form of Christian evangelism.

“Yet again, President Trump is exploiting religious divisions to score political points. Public school Bible courses are rarely taught neutrally and objectively as required by the Constitution,” Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief, told Yahoo News in an email. “Instead, these courses usually resemble Sunday school classes that blatantly violate students’ and parents’ First Amendment rights. Religious education is best left to families and faith communities, not public school officials.”

Just as the pro-business American Legislative Exchange Council crafts model bills that can be adapted and introduced in states across the country, the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation’s blueprint for inserting the Bible into public schools follows a similar starter-kit approach.

“We don’t get involved with the legislative battles,” Fitschen said. “Instead what we do is we put together model bills that we think would work in any of the 50 states, and it’s up on the foundation website.”

While bills following the foundation’s template failed to pass in Alabama, Iowa and West Virginia last year, Kentucky passed its version, House Bill 128, in 2017, over objections from the ACLU, and it was signed into law by Republican Gov. Matt Bevin.

Supporters of Bible literacy classes say the text is being taught as a historical and cultural document, but the ACLU contends that including it in the curriculum is a way to promote religion. (Click to Source)

Trump rips pro-abortion Dems, Russian ‘hoax’ at Michigan rally

Stephen Kokx – Fri Mar 29, 2019 – 1:08 pm EST

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, March 29, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A vindicated President Trump kicked off in earnest his re-election bid Thursday evening, holding his first political rally since special counsel Robert Mueller concluded earlier this week that there was no Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

In a fiery speech to an 11,000 person packed Van Andel Arena in downtown Grand Rapids, the second largest city in the state of Michigan, the president enthusiastically laid out what are likely to be the major themes of his 2020 campaign.

In typical Trump fashion, the president spent the bulk of the evening tearing into “the Russian hoax” and attacking “radical” Democrats while mocking the Green New Deal, often times to great laughs from his audience. He also touted his administration’s accomplishments on the economy, the auto industry, healthcare, and border security.

Near the end of his speech, the president called out Democrats for their embrace of infanticide and abortion.

“In recent months, the Democrat Party has also been aggressively pushing extreme late-term abortion, allowing children to be ripped from their mother’s womb up until the moment of birth,” Trump said to a smattering of boos.

“In Virginia, the governor stated he would even allow a newborn baby — wrap the baby up, make the baby comfortable — to be executed. After birth. And that is why in my State of the Union Address, I called on Congress to immediately pass legislation prohibiting the extreme late-term abortion of babies.”

Earlier this week the Trump administration strengthened the Mexico City policy, a move that, in effect, bans taxpayer dollars from being used for abortion in any way in the U.S. and overseas.

Kayleigh McEnany, National Press Secretary for President Trump’s re-election campaign, was at the rally and told LifeSiteNews that the Democrat Party’s support for third trimester abortion is outside of what mainstream Americans think is acceptable and that it will backfire on them in 2020.

The pro-life issue is “a key issue” to the President’s re-election bid, she said, “especially when the Democrats have become so radical.”

Trump echoed McEnany’s remarks during his speech. Democrats are “the party of high taxes, open borders, late-term abortion, crime, hoaxes, and delusions!” he roared. He also said that Republicans believe in religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and that “faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the true American way.”

Holding the rally in Grand Rapids is highly symbolic for Trump, as it was the city where he held his final campaign stop in 2016 during the early morning hours on election day, November 8.

In his speech to the overflowing crowd Thursday, Trump reminded attendees about how he, and not Hillary Clinton, visited the state on multiple occasions.

Trump will need to replicate those efforts in 2020 if he is to win Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes again. In 2016, he won the historically Democratic state by just 10,704 votes and will have a near impossible time getting re-elected without it. Prior to 2016, the last time Michigan supported a Republican for president was George W. Bush in 1988. Pro-abortion Democrats Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke have already been campaigning in the state.

Trump spent the first half hour of the 82-minute speech tearing into the “fake news media” and excoriating what he called “the Russian hoax,” which he referred to as “a sinister effort to undermine our historic election victory and to sabotage the will of the American people.”

Touting “total exoneration, complete vindication,” a riled-up Trump declared that the “collusion delusion is over.” He blamed the Democrats, “the deep state,” and the press for carrying out “the single greatest political hoax in the history of our country.”

The entire investigation was “a plan by those who lost the election to try to illegally regain power,” he exclaimed.

Trump also mentioned the “fake, dirty dossier” paid for by “crooked” Hillary Clinton, which was immediately met with chants of “Lock her up!” Cheers of “Build the Wall” and “CNN Sucks” occurred during the raucous rally as well.

Donald Trump Jr., who introduced his father, held nothing back either, calling out former FBI Director James Comey and Democratic lawmaker Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who has been alleging for several years that Trump-Russian collusion took place.

Trump Jr. recently said he wouldn’t rule out a run for office at some point in the future.

The rally began with a prayer by Kent County Commissioner Harold Voorhees. Voorhees prayed for an end to abortion and infanticide as well as for protection of the aged and those with special needs, to which the crowd enthusiastically cheered.

Approximately 15,000 people outside the arena watched the rally on a video screen. (Click to Source)

Liberals fume as President Trump endorses efforts by legislators in several states to allow public schools to offer Bible classes

“Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!” Mr. Trump tweeted Monday morning after “Fox and Friends” ran a segment on the topic.

Christian lawmakers in six Republican-controlled state legislatures across the country are pushing for legislation that would allow public schools to offer elective classes on the New and Old Testaments.

The push by conservative legislators in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia has stirred some controversy. Critics of the proposals, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), argue that public school classes on the Bible would jeopardize the separation of church and state enshrined in the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Alabama, Iowa and West Virginia have also considered Bible literacy bills, but all of the measures were voted down, according to the Fox News report.

But in Kentucky, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin signed legislation in 2017 to allow public school students to take Bible and Hebrew scriptures classes. A year ago, in January 2018, the ACLU of Kentucky expressed concern to the Kentucky Board of Education after an Open Records Act investigation found that many courses violated constitutional requirements that say that religious texts used in classrooms must be secular, objective and not promote any specific religious view.

The ACLU said it found “public school teachers using the Bible to impart religious life lessons” and use of Sunday school lessons and worksheets for source material. These are not academic approaches to objective study of the Bible and its historical or literary value, the ACLU pointed out.

In June 2018, the Kentucky Board of Education approved standards for the classes, but the ACLU was still worried about what was being taught in Bible literacy courses.

“Without more specific guidance, we fear some classrooms will once again be filled with preaching, not teaching,” the organization wrote in a statement last August. “The ACLU-KY reminds students and parents that ‘Bible Literacy’ courses may not promote religion or a particular religious viewpoint, test students on matters of religious faith, nor be designed to instill religious life lessons.”

“Religious education is best left to parents and churches, not school or government,” the ACLU added. (Click to Source)

‘Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps’: Roseanne posts bizarre message seemingly linked to conspiracy theory alleging high-ranking Democrats are involved in satanic child sex abuse

 

  • Roseanne Barr praised Trump on Friday for freeing kids from ‘bondage’
  • Followed up with link to White House brief on human trafficking crackdown
  • But some connected Barr’s tweet to her prior references to the ‘QAnon’ theory  
  • Barr apologized a few hours later, writing ‘Sorry to have mentioned it here’
  • Message comes on the heels of Barr’s wildly successful sitcom reboot

4ab64d8800000578-5564201-image-m-18_1522469028364

Television star Roseanne Barr has posted an unusual message praising President Donald Trump for freeing ‘children held in bondage’, in an apparent reference to a conspiracy theory about satanic child sex abuse at the highest levels of government.

‘President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere,’ Barr tweeted on Friday.

‘I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of doubt-4 now,’ she continued.

After initial confusion, Barr retweeted several links reporting recent law enforcement initiatives against human trafficking, including a March 13 White House statement announcing that DHS had made 1,602 arrests and 578 convictions in trafficking cases in 2017.

But for many, Barr’s cryptic message, which came on the heels of her wildly successful sitcom reboot, appeared to be a callback to earlier mentions she has made of the ‘QAnon’ conspiracy theory.

In response to the storm of speculation, Barr posted again a few hours after the initial tweet: ‘I have worked with victims of trafficking for decades & supported the fight against it. Sorry to have mentioned it here. It’s not the place.’

Also known as ‘The Storm’, the QAnon theory is based on a series of anonymous and highly cryptic posts on the message board 4Chan, which purport to be written by a high-level insider at the Trump White House.

Q is a reference to ‘Q-clearance’, the Department of Energy security classification that offers the broadest level of access to Top Secret and Secret Restricted Data granted by the US government.

Though Q’s posts are sometimes cryptic to the point of nonsense, in broad strokes the theory maintains that Trump is locked in a secret battle with ‘evil’ elements at the highest level of government.

The theory references earlier conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate, purporting that top-level Democrats are engaged in satanic child sex abuse and child sex trafficking.

One of Q’s only specific predictions, that Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta would be arrested on November 3, did not come to pass.

Nevertheless, the theory fired the imaginations of many who envision The Storm as an imminent domestic military crackdown and purge targeting the Trump Administration’s foes.

Barr has previously dabbled in the conspiracy. On November 17, she posted two tweets saying ‘Who is Q?’ and ‘Tell Qanon to DM me in the nexxt 24 hours’.

Shortly after Barr sent the messages, her Twitter account went offline, stoking rumors of a vast conspiracy.

Her account came back online a few hours later, with around 200,000 followers removed.

She issued a message saying ‘I am OK and back. explanation later on’.

So far, she has not issued any explanation of the incident.

Barr’s Tuesday premier of the Roseanne reboot drew some 18million viewers, making it a smashing success.

Trump even called to congratulate Barr, a Trump supporter herself whose sitcom aims to portray the real-life concerns of his working-class base. (Click to Source)

Exclusive: Trump privately talks up executing all big drug dealers

15195972409891

In Singapore, the death penalty is mandatory for drug trafficking offenses. And President Trump loves it. He’s been telling friends for months that the country’s policy to execute drug traffickers is the reason its drug consumption rates are so low.

“He says that a lot,” said a source who’s spoken to Trump at length about the subject. “He says, ‘When I ask the prime minister of Singapore do they have a drug problem [the prime minister replies,] ‘No. Death penalty’.”

Show less
He often jokes about killing drug dealers… He’ll say, ‘You know the Chinese and Filipinos don’t have a drug problem. They just kill them.’
— A senior administration official to Axios
  • But the president doesn’t just joke about it. According to five sources who’ve spoken with Trump about the subject, he often leaps into a passionate speech about how drug dealers are as bad as serial killers and should all get the death penalty.
  • Trump tells confidants a softer approach to drug reform — the kind where you show sympathy to the offenders and give them more lenient sentences — will never work.
  • He tells friends and associates the government has got to teach children that they’ll die if they take drugs and they’ve got to make drug dealers fear for their lives.
  • Trump has said he would love to have a law to execute all drug dealers here in America, though he’s privately admitted it would probably be impossible to get a law this harsh passed under the American system.
  • Kellyanne Conway, who leads the White House’s anti-drug efforts, argues Trump’s position is more nuanced, saying the president is talking about high-volume dealers who are killing thousands of people. The point he’s making, she says, is that some states execute criminals for killing one person but a dealer who brings a tiny quantity of fentanyl into a community can cause mass death in just one weekend, often with impunity.

The substance: Trump may back legislation requiring a five-year mandatory minimum sentence for traffickers who deal as little as two grams of fentanyl. Currently, you have to deal forty grams to trigger the mandatory five-year sentence. (The DEA estimates that as little as two milligrams is enough to kill people.)

  • Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, and much of it is manufactured in Chinese labs. It can be lethal in extremely small doses. Of the 64,000 people who died of drug overdoses in 2016, more than 20,000 overdosed on synthetic opioids like fentanyl, according to the National Institute for Drug Abuse.

Between the lines: Conway told me this kind of policy would have widespread support. “There is an appetite among many law enforcement, health professionals and grieving families that we must toughen up our criminal and sentencing statutes to match the new reality of drugs like fentanyl, which are so lethal in such small doses,” she said.

  • “The president makes a distinction between those that are languishing in prison for low-level drug offenses and the kingpins hauling thousands of lethal doses of fentanyl into communities, that are responsible for many casualties in a single weekend.”

What’s next: Trump wants to get tough on drug traffickers and pharmaceutical companies. Stay tuned for policy announcements in the not-too-distant future.

  • Trump and some of his advisers are discussing whether they might adopt other aspects of Singapore’s “zero tolerance” drug policies, like bringing more anti-drug education into schools.
  • Both Conway and the First Lady Melania Trump, who has taken a strong interest in the administration’s anti-drug policies, support getting better drug education and prevention into schools.  (Click to Source)

President Trump wants to execute all big drug dealers who are killing thousands, says Axios report

1519597240989

Jonathan Swan at Axios had an exclusive scoop about what President Donald Trump really thinks about drug dealers.

Sources close to Trump and in the White House told Axios that the President loves Singapore’s mandatory death penalty for drug trafficking and constantly talks about it.

Trump acknowledges a law that strict would be difficult to get passed in America, but he may back legislation requiring five-year mandatory minimum sentences for traffickers of some of the most dangerous opioids, Axios reported.

Currently, the laws around drug trafficking opioids are relatively loose and there is bipartisan support for making these laws much more strict.

Axios reported:

In Singapore, the death penalty is mandatory for drug trafficking offenses. And President Trump loves it. He’s been telling friends for months that the country’s policy to execute drug traffickers is the reason its drug consumption rates are so low.

Trump cautioned: ‘Deep State’ is out to get you

A conservative columnist says President Trump “better be on his game” if he agrees to be questioned by Robert Mueller’s team.

A number of conservative analysts have said it was unwise for the president to say he would be willing to answer questions under oath in the interview, which special counsel Robert Mueller has been seeking. When asked by reporters at the White House, Trump said: “I’m looking forward to it, actually.” The president said that an interview could take place within two to three weeks.

Robert Knight, a conservative activist and a columnist for OneNewsNow and The Washington Times, says most individuals might welcome being asked any question when they have nothing to hide.

“Except when it’s a witch hunt,” he qualifies, “when you might be asked very calculated questions designed to take even innocent answers and twist them into an indictable offense. [If he submits to an interview under oath], Mr. Trump better be on his game because a lot is at stake here.”

A former prosecutor who is now general counsel for the American Family Association offered similar advice last week, suggesting that the controversial four-page FISA memo be released to the public because he predicts it could very well “blow up” the Mueller investigation.

Meanwhile, the recent report of a “secret society” within the Department of Justice and the FBI, says Knight, sounds like the old Soviet Russia.

“In Russia, the KGB was a secret society unto itself, and it went after political opponents – but it also went after the Russian people,” he explains. “This so-called ‘secret society’ that seems to have emerged via emails disclosed about FBI people shows that it is aimed at bringing down the Trump administration. It’s got a singular focus which is to destroy the Trump presidency.”

Franklin Graham warns of deep state coup against President Trump

Rev. Franklin Graham: If Trump succeeds, we all succeed

One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

“I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Franklin Graham said Wednesday on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.” “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.”

Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

The evangelical leader did not name names, but he suggested the mainstream media was complicit in the silent coup. Click here to listen to the shocking interview.

“They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

“I have a very simple admonition at this point,” Michael Steele said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “Just shut the hell up and don’t ever preach to me about anything ever again. I don’t want to hear it.”

Steele, the former head of the Republican National Committee, was furious at evangelicals.

“After telling me how to live my life, who to love, what to believe, what not to believe, what to do and what not to do and now you sit back and the prostitutes don’t matter? The grabbing the you-know-what doesn’t matter? The outright behavior and lies don’t matter? Just shut up.”

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, drew fire after he said evangelicals gave President Trump a second chance.

“Yes, evangelicals, conservatives, they gave him a mulligan,” he told CNN. “They let him have a do-over. They said we’ll start afresh with you and we’ll give you a second chance.”

Both Graham and Perkins pointed out that Trump’s alleged sinful transgressions occurred long before he took the oath of office. On the other hand, Bill Clinton’s admitted indiscretions not only happened during his presidential term – they literally happened in the Oval Office.

“Just shut the hell up and don’t ever preach to me about anything ever again. I don’t want to hear it.”

So how does Graham respond to Trump’s admitted sinful past?

“We are all flawed people,” he told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.” “The president is a sinner. Franklin Graham is a sinner. We are not perfect people.”

He called the accusations against the president unfortunate and distracting.

“Has he had scandals in his life? Sure he has,” Graham told me. “These scandals happened a number of years ago. That doesn’t make it right. I don’t condone bad language. I don’t condone adultery.”

But for now – Graham said he still supports President Trump.

“He’s not perfect, but he’s our president,” Graham said. “He said he didn’t do it. I have to take his word over that of the media – that is trying to lynch him.”

However, should evidence come to light that Trump had engaged in such behavior while in office, Graham said he would speak out with condemnation.

“We need to pray for those that surround the president that God will protect them and keep them safe,” he said.

“I believe that he’s the president of this nation because God allowed it,” Graham. “And I think on election night, God intervened. He wasn’t supposed to win — he was supposed to lose. And I think it was God who worked in a mysterious way on election night to turn the tables.”

During the 2016 presidential election, Graham declined to endorse a candidate. He also held non-political prayer rallies at every state capitol in the nation. There was a reason for that.

“The only hope for this country is God,” Graham said. “I don’t have any faith in the Republican Party. I don’t have any faith in the Democrat Party. The only hope for this nation is God.” (Click to Source)
