Government Intrusion Into Our Private Lives is at An All-Time High

March 15, 2016

Tonight’s second (or is it the third or fourth?  I’ve lost count!) Super Tuesday primary may very well end up being the political death knell (rhetorically speaking) for at least two of the remaining four Republican candidates for president.  But if they do well enough to stay in, I wouldn’t mind.

I have written about my reservations and fears regarding Trump, but if he ends up being the Republican nominee, he would still be light years better [IF, and only IF he is being honest about his conservative political views] than Lying Hillary or Commie Sanders!

I recently ran across several articles about an author named Cheryl Chumley.  Very astute and smart woman!  I particularly liked the summary written below regarding her thoughts about illegal immigration and how the Democrats misuse the Bible, our Constitution (and practically anything else) in order to demonize those of us who want to secure the border once and for all and prevent illegal immigration.

Received an email from WND this morning which shares the fact that the Bible is on the side of secure borders.

Excerpt:

In Exodus 22:21, God commanded the Israelites, “You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.”

Some American Christians [the leftist ones – Christine adds!] have interpreted that passage as a mandate for the United States to excuse and accommodate illegal immigrants.

But award-winning journalist Cheryl Chumley notes a “sojourner” is a temporary visitor; illegal aliens seek to remain in the country, so that passage does not apply to them.

Moreover, she pointed out, God Himself was the one who separated the peoples of the Earth and confused their languages in Genesis 11, thus creating nations. So national sovereignty is perfectly biblical.

[The] Bible does not teach that breaking the law is OK, she asserted. She cited Proverbs 28:4, which reads: “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law strive against them.”

Chumley said it is unseemly for a nation based on the rule of law and Judeo-Christian values to reward illegal immigrants for their law-breaking by putting them on a “path to citizenship.”

“I don’t understand why the lawbreakers are given extra concessions while the citizens are put in a second-class state,” she told WND in and interview.

Well, many Americans who now are aware of the games of the Washington establishment on both sides of the aisle understand!

Chumley also wrote a column explaining why Trumps Fight is Really a War on DC.  This is why the establishment Republicans will probably do ANYTHING in order to keep Trump from the nomination.

The battle isn’t “R” vs “D” and hasn’t been for years, it is very much Ruling Class vs. Citizens. The population/voters are made up of those that understand what is being done to our lives and our country and those on the opposing side that are content in their belief that nothing is different and our government knows best. The Donald has struck a chord with those of us that are resisting the destruction of our nation.

I think that is very true! The TEA Party tried to warn people about 0bama, but not enough people were listening. After 7+ horrid years of failed and destructive policies, who could blame people for wanting an anti-establishment Republican candidate?

Another commenter shared what I am worried might happen with a Trump presidency:

The one thing that draws me to Trump is the fact that so many in the establishment, both Democrat and Republican, are trying so hard to stop his freight train. On one level, I can’t help but wonder if Trump is executing a con, claiming to support positions that he has no intention of implementing. But if that were the case, then it seems that those in opposition would be in on it and either overtly or discreetly support him. It would have to be one heck of a conspiracy to think all of this is coordinated to fool the American public into voting for the status quo yet again

Because Trump has been supporting so many Democrats over the years, how could we trust that he is genuine with his rhetoric espousing conservative principles, goals, and action?

FYI: President Trump has a great Agenda:

•Lower/simplify taxes, and eliminate the IRS asap

•Stop IL-LEGAL immigration, anchor-babies, and AMNESTY

•Replace ObamaCare with market-driven TrumpCare

•Balance the federal budget in 4 years

•Down-size the bloated, corrupt US government and USPS

•Re-negotiate all international-trade agreements

•Expand the US Supreme Court from 9 to 15 Justices

•Remove Ryan and McConnell from leadership of Congress

•Impose TERM-LIMITS on Congress and US Supreme Court

•De-fund PBS and the Dept. of Education and Common Core

•Make English the official language of the USA

•Audit the Federal Reserve banking system

•Thorough investigation of 9-11 and BenGhazi

Although I can’t claim being at any of his rallies, I have heard what seems to be the same rhetoric over and over again without hearing any specifics on how he would accomplish these goals. I have watched every debate and heard maybe 4 or 5 of these items listed as goals. But again, no specifics on how he would accomplish them.

Another commenter had these important facts written down:

The Tyranny of the Establishment.

The establishment politician has betrayed America in their conduct and our trust in government is completely broken. A government has become tyrannical in….
– Using its power to persecute its adversaries and critics (IRS scandal)
– Using its power to hide and betray Americans of its failures (Benghazi)
– Using its power to protect favored establishment political elite from prosecution (Hillary email)
– Using its power to go against the popular will of the people (Obamacare)
– Using its power to overturn governments in which it disagrees (Ukraine, Syria, Libya,etc.)
– Using its power to advance and protect elite interests to the detriment of Americans (TPP and failure to prosecute Wall Street for the last financial crisis)
– Using its power to reshape America into the poster child of globalist and UN initiatives, against the will of Americans (open borders).
– Using its power to extort from the productive class to grow their political base among the bribed non-productive class (tax increases)

I agree most with what “Dawg em” writes here:

I’m coming to the conclusion that, setting his crony capitalist tendencies and previous support for liberals and their ideals aside, Trump’s narcissism may indeed be compelling him to make his mark on history by turning this country around and making war on the DC establishment.

While I don’t believe the ends justify the means, and I have trust issues with people who run for office that decide to make adjustments to previously held positions, I also believe God can use anyone he chooses for His purposes.

So the real question becomes: Have Americans repented enough to again receive God’s grace and much needed healing? I pray it is so.

 

Hat tip: WND, commenters listed, and additional links.

Cheryl Chumley’s new book, The Devil in DC points out the facts of the anger that We The People have because the Government intrusion into our private lives is at an all-time high.
