Paula White-Cain, Trump’s Maestro To Rally Religious Voters (Opinion)

Get the word out…

When you believe in something greater than yourself, it’s hard to hate another person. Americans may be divided now, but it’s still possible to bring the nation back together.

Pastor Paula White-Cain, President Donald Trump’s friend and spiritual adviser, shared her thoughts on the state of the nation with Breitbart News Sunday recently. White-Cain is the author of the best-selling book, Something Greater: Finding Triumph Over Trials.

“Our relationship of understanding that there is something greater than just ourselves, and there’s something greater than just…our everyday, our ordinary job, or what we do,” White-Cain said. “That we were created by this amazing God with an incredible purpose, and He is love. And when we begin to walk in that, it’s really difficult to have enemies. You can disagree, you can not have the same values, but to have hatred? That I don’t relate to. That I don’t understand.”

White-Cain related how she is a strong, “die hard” conservative while her mother was a Democrat. Her mother, she says, was a CNN watcher while White-Cain has long been a Fox News viewer. But they came together as family and never let disagreements get in the way of their relationship.

“One of the things that I pray for myself, and that I recommend for people to pray all the time is, anything that is not of love, let it be uprooted from my life,” White-Cain advised. “And I’ve found that when I genuinely begin to pray for others, though I might not stand with them, as far as what they stand for in life we might have differences, and that’s ok…But I still just don’t have that hatred or that bitterness or that wounding or that offense.”

As President Trump’s spiritual adviser, Pastor Paula is taking on a visible role in the president’s policies for the nation and in his quest for re-election. Evangelical Christians make up one of Trump’s strongest core constituencies. White-Cain both advises the president on engaging with evangelicals, and makes the president’s case to evangelical voters to stick with him.

She noted how the Democrats’ treatment of the president, who is a former Democrat himself, is creating a more divided America. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to rip the text of President Trump’s State of the Union address in front of the whole country symbolized the depth of the bitterness and division.

“It was such a disheartening moment, I think, for all of us,” White-Cain said of Pelosi’s decision to tear up the president’s speech. “I have friends who are Democrat and friends who are Republican and it was very disheartening to many of my Democrat friends as well as my Republican friends when they saw the State of the Union being torn up.” She added that it felt like seeing a “sacred” document ripped apart.

But she still sees the possibility of unity.

“I think the first area has to start with prayer,” White-Cain said. “I don’t think human intellect and human wisdom can solve this. I think it has to start with true repentance. And repentance means, I change my mind and I change my direction.”

White-Cain calls on Americans to set hate aside and repent of it for the good of the country, and more importantly for the good of our own souls.

“So I think the first thing that we have to do is genuinely, not necessarily just religious cliches or jargon or words, throwing out ‘Hey, I’m praying for you!’ I think our words are important. I think they’re vital, that when we say ‘I’m praying,’ we’re held to a higher accountability and that is God Himself. So I think it does really, genuinely, start with prayer. I think it starts with a heart that is intentional to rebuild. A heart that desires to be unified.”

Pastor Paula calls on Americans to see something greater in prayer, and walk in love for each other. “And God is the ultimate judge,” she adds.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Oath Keeper Leader Claims Police are Training Militias for ‘Civil War’

And the FBI seems to agree with him!

At the very end of the first term of Donald Trump’s presidency, we were as close to a civil war as this nation has come in over a dozen decades, and we may not fully appreciate that yet.  We are, perhaps, too close to the events themselves to fully understand just how narrowly we escaped a broader calamity, but we must try to remain vigilant still. Especially if what one of the leaders of the Oath Keepers says is true. The far-right paramilitary the Oath Keepers is home to active-duty law-enforcement officers who are training up other members to prepare for civil war, according to one of the group’s top figures. CBS News’ 60 Minutesprofiled the the increasingly notorious militia on Sunday night, and one of its leaders from Arizona, Jim Arroyo, spoke openly about the close involvement of police officers. “Our guys are very experienced,” said Arroyo. “We have active-duty law enforcement in our organization that are helping to train us. We can blend in with our law enforcement and in fact, in a lot of cases, our training is much more advanced because of our military backgrounds.” And the government seems to already be away of this. Arroyo’s statement was backed up by Javed Ali, an ex-National Security Council senior director and FBI counterterrorism official, who said the Oath Keepers are a “unique and challenging” threat to the U.S. because a “large percentage have tactical training and operational experience in either the military or law enforcement. That at least gives them a capability that a lot of other people in this far-right space don’t have.” Several members of the Oath Keepers were arrested during the January 6th Capitol riot, as they attempted to prevent the certification of the results of the 2020 election by Congress.
