WATCH: Prominent Pastor Says Trump May Turn Out to Be the Best President in Our Lifetime for the Black Community

Published

on

There is a glitch in the progressive Matrix.

The mainstream media does everything they can to bury this terribly inconvenient fact, but the President they’ve been working hard to paint as a racist, sexist, bigoted homophobe just so happens to have a vibrant and vocal community of minority, female, and gay supporters.

One of the greatest speeches of his political career, in this author’s humble opinion, was the speech he gave in Milwaukee in August of 2016.

After several years of increased racial tension, often violent identity politics, Trump spoke to a city that was at that moment in the midst of violent race riots fueled by media outrage over a justified police killing of a young black man who pointed a loaded weapon at a police officer, also black.

Trump managed to tap into something that conservative African Americans had been saying for years: the Democrats had failed them.

That night, Trump had a simple request of the black community: “I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different future.”

“The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community. Democratic crime policies, education policies, and economic policies have produced only more crime, more broken homes, and more poverty,” he explained, breaking down the failing schools, the skyrocketing crime rates, the fear that African Americans parents and children lived in as law and order crumbled around them.

“To every parent who dreams for their children, and to every child who dreams for their future,” he concluded, ” say these words to you tonight: I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you.”

Now, according to Pastor Darrell Scott, a prominent black pastor who joined a group of faith leaders from our nation’s struggling inner cities, it appears Trump has indeed followed through on that promise and may turn out to the most beneficial president for the black community in recent memory, an ironic fact considering he’s following up the first black president in history.

Here’s what Scott said:

I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with then-candidate, now President Trump, and to observe him behind the scenes and have a number of personal conversations with him. And people ask me why do I defend him so vociferously? And I say it’s easy for me to do because I know him, and he’s shown me his heart, and I know he has a heart for all Americans.

And I will say this – this administration has taken a lot of people by surprise, and it’s going to surprise you guys even more because this is probably the most proactive administration regarding urban America and the faith-based community in my lifetime. And I’ll be 60 years old in December.

But when I think back on – well, I use good hair dye, and I’ve got a great makeup artist. But, to be honest, this is probably going to be the – and I’m going to say this at this table – the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime because – and I try to, you know, analyze the people that I encounter – this president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community.

The last president didn’t feel like he had to. He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass. This president is – this administration is probably going to be more proactive regarding urban revitalization and prison reform than any president in your lifetime.

If we work together, give him a chance, don’t pay any attention to these guys back here, and I’ll promise you, we will do something that…this administration will continue to make history. It’s going to be a lot of positive changes. Great things are on the horizon, I promise.

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
