Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

DR. BEN CARSON: ABORTION IS 'EVIL' AND TRANSGENDERISM 'ABSURD'

Featured Image

Dr. Ben Carson: Abortion is ‘evil’ and transgenderism is ‘absurd’

CLEVELAND, July 20, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson stood by his comments linking Hillary Clinton to Lucifer this morning, adding that the policies she espouses – like abortion-on-demand and changing the definition of marriage – are “evil.”
At a separate event, he called redefining sex based on one’s preferred gender identity “the height of absurdity.”
In his nationally televised address to the Republican National Convention last night, Dr. Carson alluded to the fact that Hillary Clinton had looked up to Saul Alinky, the godfather of left-wing community organizers.
Alinsky dedicated his best-known book, Rules for Radicals, to “Lucifer.”
On CNN this morning, Carson told Christopher Cuomo the book advised protesters to unleash “controlled anarchy in order to change us from a democratic republic to a socialist society,” a philosophy that is not “consistent with the principles” of the United States.
Clinton wrote her senior thesis at Wellesley College on Alinsky, with whom she maintained a friendly correspondence, in 1969.
Cuomo repeatedly asked Dr. Carson if he had gone “too far” in mentioning Clinton and Lucifer in the same breath, adding that he had never heard Clinton “mention” Alinsky as a mentor in public.
“She was on a first-name basis with Saul Alinsky,” Dr. Carson replied. “He offered her a job.”
“You have to also use your brain,” Carson said. “Look at her actions, you look at what she advocates. The killing of babies, the dissolution of the traditional family” are “pretty consistent” with Alinsky’s socialist worldview.
But they contrast markedly with her professed Christian faith, he said.
“When you look at the principles that are espoused by Christ, by Christianity, then look at what is espoused by evil, and then you look at things like killing babies, you look at things like redefining marriage away from what the Biblical definition is, I think there’s pretty good consistency there,” Dr. Carson said.
Clinton “doesn’t have the knowledge or the judgment” to be president, he concluded.

The transgender movement opposes “tolerance”

In addition to his floor speech, the neurosurgeon has come under fire today for a separate address to the Florida delegation at the Republican National Convention, in which he said changing one’s gender is as absurd as attempting to change ethnicity.
“For thousands of years, mankind has known what a man is and what a woman is, and now, all of a sudden we don’t know anymore,” he told delegates on Tuesday morning. “Now, is that the height of absurdity?”
“We have to be willing to call out people for this absolutely ridiculous stuff that they’re trying to put over on us, that they’re trying to put over on our children,” he said.
“Secular progressives” had tried to present the transgender political movement as part of the civil rights crusade, but “it's not a civil rights issue,” he said.
Polls have shown a majority of African-Americans reject equating LGBT concerns with the civil rights movement.
Dr. Carson defended his remarks in an interview with NBC’s Katie Couric last night.
Identifying with another gender “doesn’t change their genetics,” he said. “A leopard can’t change its spots,” he added, quoting the Book of Jeremiah.
While he believes transgender people deserve “equal rights,” he opposed granting them “extra rights” by amending civil rights laws.
“Nobody gets to redefine everything for everybody else and then make them comply to it,” he said. “That’s not tolerance.”

MORE INFORMATION: WHY MUSLIM COP SHOT WHITE WOMAN

Riots Heading To Streets After SICK Admission Comes Out About Why Muslim Cop Shot White Woman

When Justine Damond called the cops to report a potential assault she heard behind her Minneapolis home on Sunday, she didn’t think she would become the victim. 
As she stood beside the patrol car in her pajamas, calmly describing what she witnessed, she was shot in the gut by the Somali Muslim cop listening to her account from the passenger seat. 
In the hours since the horrific details of that fatal night, the country was left wondering why this officer sent to protect this woman, killed her without provocation. 
Now the truth has come out and it’s worse than we thought after Officer Mohamed Noor’s partner who was there that night reveals the motive based on what he witnessed seconds before Noor pulled the trigger.
It’s been nearly 36 hours since the news first surfaced in the media late Monday afternoon, and nobody has heard a thing on the matter from Noor’s partner, Officer Matthew Harrity. 
Harrity was in the driver’s seat of the patrol vehicle, with his window down talking to Damond who was reporting a potential sexual assault in the ally behind her home. 
Halfway through her witness account, Noor reached across Harrity and shot the blonde woman, who was a bride-to-be, yoga teacher, and recent transplant to America from Australia. 
It’s safe to say that Harrity was as surprised but the sudden lethal action as the rest of us, but in being on the scene and knowing Noor personally, he’s now exposed one damning detail.
The Daily Mail reports:
“A police source told KARE11 that Harrity was ‘left stunned’ by officer Mohamed Noor’s actions.”
“The revelation makes the motive for shooting all the more mysterious as it appears that Harrity did not view Damond as posing a threat.”
“The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, BCA, investigating the incident, is remaining tight lipped about what happened late that Saturday night until they finish interviewing Noor and Harrity as part of their probe.”
According to local Minnesota news, the Star Tribune, those details have now come out about what happened in those critical seconds before Noor decided that a fatal response was necessary. 
This Muslim should have never been on the police force to begin with, considering he had a history of violence, including charges of assaulting another woman while on the job.
Had this victim been black and cop was white, there would be rioting in the streets already well before now. 
Considering the race reversal, there’s not the same outrage, but should be. 
Political correctness and protecting Muslim and Muslim refugees in America is literally killing people and something must be done about it.
“In the interview, Officer Harrity said heard a loud noise prior to Officer Noor firing his weapon. The BCA said, ‘Harrity indicated that he was startled by a loud sound near the squad,’ according to Star Tribune.”
“Immediately after the loud noise is when Justine Damond approached the squad car in her pajamas, and Officer Noor fired his weapon.”
“During the radio audio of the incident, a dispatcher references ‘two shots heard to the east’.”
“An officer responded, “We heard those sounds from the station, those are probably aerial fireworks.” It’s believed that those fireworks may be the loud noise that the officers hears.”
“It is not clear at this time if the shooting was an accidental discharge from being startled, or Officer Noor was responding to what he perceived to be gunshots while a person approached them, or some other reasoning. 
Officer Noor has still not been interviewed.”
“If the shooting is determined to have been accidental, criminal charges would be appropriate and are certain to be filed. If the shooting was an intentional act, then all of the circumstances would need to be judged to determine if it was objectively reasonable.”
Noor should have been stripped of his badge and gun after a May 25, 2017 incident in which he accused of false imprisonment, assault and battery. He and two other officers had arrived at a woman’s house in response to a call to police in which he allegedly mistreated a woman in the home there. 
The victim recently filed a lawsuit against Noor before he killed Damond during this last call. Noor attempted to discredit his previous victim’s claim by saying he has reason to believe she was suffering a mental breakdown, as an excuse for creating these allegations. 
The woman and her doctors have adamantly denied this assertion, stating that Noor grabbed her right wrist and upper arm which led to her having severe pain which was caused by a previous shoulder injury as she was being arrested.
There is a trend of mistreatment of women by Noor which characteristic of his Islamic faith. He should have never been allowed in a position of power initially if he’s so triggered by loud noises, in this later case, perhaps as result of his upbringing in Somalia. 
However, he definitely should have at least been put on leave of absence after the abuse allegations against him. If it had not been for protecting Muslims in Minnesota and giving them equal opportunities, Justine would be alive today and looking forward to walking down the aisle. 
Instead, her would-be husband will be carrying her casket.

TRUMP TO PULL FEDS OUR OF K-12 EDUCATION

 - The Washington Times - Wednesday, April 26, 2017
President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to start pulling the federal government out of K-12 education, following through on a campaign promise to return school control to state and local officials.
The order, dubbed the “Education Federalism Executive Order,” will launch a 300-day review of Obama-era regulations and guidance for school districts and directs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to modify or repeal measures she deems an overreach by the federal government.
“For too long the government has imposed its will on state and local governments. The result has been education that spends more and achieves far, far, far less,” Mr. Trump said. “My administration has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities [and] states — give power back to localities.”
He said that previous administrations had increasingly forced schools to comply with “whims and dictates” from Washington, but his administration would break the trend.
“We know local communities know it best and do it best,” said Mr. Trump, who was joined by several Republican governors for the signing. “The time has come to empower teachers and parents to make the decisions that help their students achieve success.”
Ms. DeVos and Vice President Mike Pence were on hand for the ceremony, which was attended by about 25 people, including teachers, lawmakers and the governors.
The executive order is not expected to have an immediate impact on school districts. Policy changes will follow a report on the findings of the review.
The review will be spearheaded by the Department of Education’s Regulatory Review Task Force, according to the order.
Ms. DeVos already has authority to modify or repeal regulations that are deemed a violation of federal law. The order, however, creates a review for identifying those areas and makes clear her mandate from the president to take action.
Reducing the federal government’s role in K-12 is part of Mr. Trump’s reform agenda, which also includes the expansion of school choice programs.
Among those at the signing ceremony were Govs. Kay Ivey of Alabama, Gary Herbert of Utah, Paul LePage of Maine, Brian Sandoval of Nevada and Terry Branstad of Iowa, who also is Mr. Trump’s nominee for ambassador to China.
Also in attendance were Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, the Republican chairs of the two chambers’ education committees.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/apr/26/donald-trump-pull-feds-out-k-12-education/?platform=hootsuite
My comments: Under Obama and the Democrats, K-12 was an Indoctrination Center for their Religion of godless, Socialist, Secular Humanism. This is Condemning kids to Hell, before the Living God. Let us pray this Indoctrination Stops, and the godly values of the Founders be Taught once again.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM: HOW GOD VIEWS TRANGENDERED PEOPLE

Franklin Graham Explains How God Views Transgendered People

 FAITH 
JULY 17, 2017
It seems more and more people are saying today, "I was born the wrong gender; I was meant to be a ____." 
Even some people of faith are coming out as gay or transgendered, saying that God made them that way. 
And in an effort to be politically correct and in with the "cool kids," some churches and denominations (like the Church of England) are agreeing with that narrative.
"During an earlier debate, the Bishop of Liverpool, the Right Reverend Paul Bayes, said: 'As the world listens to us today, the world needs to hear us say that LGBTI orientation and identity is not a crime, not a sickness and not a sin,'" shares the BBC.
But is that what the Bible says? 
No, says Franklin Graham, the ever-bold spiritual voice in America, willing to take on very tough issues. In a latest post on Facebook, Graham speaks out against the Church of England's recent decision to affirm homosexuality and transgenders as holy and part of God's will.

ANOTHER HYPER-GRACE TEACHER BITES THE DUST

I was sad but not surprised to see the announcement as yet another hyper-grace teacher took a giant step towards apostasy. I'm not naming names here, but I'm speaking about a man who had been a pastor and respected Christian leader but is now claiming that Jesus would bless a same-sex "wedding." What a gross misrepresentation of our Savior and Lord!
When I first saw some the material this pastor was putting out a few years back, I reached out to him, offering to interact and graciously challenging his position. Although he declined my offer, I had hoped that he would think twice about his message. His overemphasis on God's goodness to the exclusion of other aspects of His character was dangerous. 
Yet it was typical of others in the hyper-grace camp.
Unfortunately, since then, this man went further in the wrong direction, downplaying future judgment and now claiming that God's Word does not condemn committed same-sex relationships. And so, his rapid plunge towards apostasy continues.
And he is not alone. Since Hyper-Grace was published in January, 2014, I have heard from a number of leaders in that camp.
One pastor told me he no longer identifies with the message, having seen far too many abuses. He also told me that one of the authors I cited in my book no longer preaches the gospel at all. He embraces universalism. (I predicted this would happen in Hyper-Grace, but to be candid, I didn't need to be a rocket scientist to make that prediction.)
Some hyper-grace leaders have clarified their positions, hopefully taking a step towards a more scriptural view of grace.
Others have fallen into serious doctrinal errors as well as the lowering of moral standards.
But why not? If Jesus did it all and there's nothing you can add to it; if no matter how you live, you cannot break fellowship with God; if your reward is the same regardless of the sin in your life, then why not go out and enjoy the world?
Let's take this a step farther. If the commandments of Scripture are part of a legalistic system that must be cast off, and if love is the only rule we follow, then how can we say no to a loving gay couple?
You can see quickly where this kind of thinking leads. It has nothing to do with God's Word and in reality, it misunderstands the nature of God's love.
A few years ago, a pastor posted this on the Ministry Today website after reading my article entitled 
He wrote, "The greasy grace message is once again leading people into sin. 
As a pastor for more than 20 years I can tell you this 'new' version of grace is destroying people's lives. 
Many pastors are now coming out of the closet and declaring their homosexuality as being 'okay' and even 'acceptable' based on the idea of grace!"
Again, this is no surprise, and we can easily see how a hyper-grace emphasis can lead to outright deception. For example, one pastor dedicated his book to the members of his congregation "who have taken the difficult journey from legalism to liberty and have become a better community of believers as a result."
This may sound good on the surface, but the man is an openly gay pastor and his book was a defense of homosexuality, all in the name of liberty. Yes, this church cast off legalism and discovered God's grace—or so they thought. 
What they really discovered was a loophole for the flesh, one that will lead to eternal destruction.
True liberty in the Spirit leads to holiness of heart and life, and a healthy rejection of legalism leads to an embrace of God's law being written on our hearts. Jesus sets us free from sin, not to sin. And the blood of Jesus does not redefine sin; it highlights the ugliness of sin and provides an antidote for it.
When I met with Pastor Joseph Prince earlier this year, he shared powerful testimonies with me of people leaving homosexuality, and he insisted that those who truly heard his message would turn away from sin, not find a license for it. And regardless of the doctrinal differences we have, we wholeheartedly agreed on the centrality of preaching Jesus as Lord, the reality of future judgment, and the importance of holy living.
So, while we have our differences, we are pursuing the same great goal: a holy bride presented to King Jesus for the eternal glory of God. 
Others have cast off the preaching of holiness in the name of grace, continuing their slippery slide to destruction.
May God grant these leaders repentance before it's too late.

CORPORATE DONATIONS ROLL IN TO OBAMA LIBRARY

Obama library foundation now allows corporate donations, millions roll in

Barack Obama has been on a “secret mission” to destroy Trump’s presidency ever since he left the office. This time, however, it seems that he made another major move forward and came one step close to his goal.
Ever since he learned that there are no real prospects to run against Trump in 2020, Obama is now preparing all the stops in the hopes that he can make him lose. While in the past 8 years, during his presidency, Obama demonized “corporately-owned politicians,” he is now showing how hypocritical he is by lifting the donor restrictions on his presidential library.
With his new rule, anyone who wants to donate to Obama and Democrats and help their “pay for play” scheme can now donate as much as they want. This has resulted in million-dollar gifts from such corporations like Microsoft and Exelon.
One week ago, the Obama Foundation announced that eight donors have pledged at least $1 million and that it has raised more than $1.2 million in the first three months of the 2017. By now, the foundation has brought the total fundraising amounts to at least $8 million toward the projected $500 million cost of the library-museum on the Side of Chicago.
This is another proof of how desperate Obama and his democrats are in order to take down Trump, and sabotage his presidency. They just can’t accept the fact that the people have had enough of their lies and crimes.
http://www.usanewsflash.com/obama-library-foundation/

My comments: Obama came to TRANSFORM America into a godless, Socialist, Secular Humanist TYRANNY and he has never given up on this Goal. A godless CABAL was behind him then, and remains behind him now. 

OBITUARY FOR THE "DEATH OF COMMON SENSE"

Obituary for the “death of common sense” is absolutely hilarious

We’ve lost a long time friend.
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn’t always fair, and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned, but overbearing, regulations were set in place.
Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, teenagers suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they had themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer paracetamol, sun lotion or plaster to a pupil, but could not inform the parents when a pupil became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as churches became businesses and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home, but the burglar could sue you for assault because you protected yourself and your own.
Common Sense finally passed away after a 7-year-old child was suspended from school for chewing a Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else is to Blame, and I’m A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized that he was gone.
If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

STUDY: CANNABIS DAMAGING TO THE BRAINS OF TEENS

Cannabis

Teenagers who smoke cannabis damage their brains for LIFE and may be more likely to develop schizophrenia

  • U.S. study found that mice exposed to even small doses of marijuana for 20 days suffered lasting brain damage into adulthood 
  • Results highlight how teenagers who regularly smoke weed may have a greater risk of developing schizophrenia
Teenagers who regularly smoke cannabis suffer long lasting brain damage and are in much greater danger of developing schizophrenia. 
American researchers say the drug is particularly dangerous for a group of people who have a genetic susceptibility to the mental health disorder - and it could be the trigger for it. 
Asaf Keller, of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said the results highlight the dangers of teenagers smoking cannabis during their formative years. 
The study, published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, exposed young mice to the active ingredient in marijuana for 20 days.
It found that their brain activity was impaired, with the damage continuing into adulthood.
The past 20 years has seen major controversy about the long-term effects of marijuana, with experts divided over its long-term effects on teenagers.

EVER INCREASING WICKEDNESS

Just as you used to Offer the parts of your body
IN SLAVERY TO IMPURITY
AND TO EVER INCREASING WICKEDNESS,
So now Offer them in Slavery to Righteousness
Leading to Holiness.
(Romans 6:19)

Every Christian should understand,
Is that Slavery to Impurity,
Leads to Ever Increasing Wickedness.

The only thing that Abates this Vicious cycle
Is Faith in Christ Jesus,
And Obedience to His Word.

The World, that has Refused to love the Truth,
Is in this Vicious Cycle
Of Ever Increasing Wickedness,
That leads to the End
That Scripture has Described for us.  

ROMANS Chapter 6

Dead To Sin, Alive In Christ

What shall we say, then?
Shall we go on Sinning so that Grace may increase?

2 BY NO MEANS!
WE DIED TO SIN;
HOW CAN WE LIVE IN IT ANY LONGER?

3 Or don't you know
That all of us who were Baptized into Christ Jesus
Were Baptized into his death?

4 We were therefore Buried with Him through Baptism
INTO DEATH
In order that, just as Christ was Raised from the Dead
Through the Glory of the Father,
WE TOO MAY HAVE NEW LIFE.

5 IF WE HAVE BEEN UNITED WITH HIM IN HIS DEATH,
WE WILL CERTAINLY BE UNITED WITH HIM
IN HIS RESURRECTION.

6 FOR WE KNOW THAT OUR OLD SELF
WAS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM
SO THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE RENDERED POWERLESS,
THAT WE SHOULD NO LONGER BE SLAVES TO SIN--

7 BECAUSE ANYONE WHO HAS DIED
HAS BEEN FREED FROM SIN.

8 NOW IF WE DIED WITH CHRIST,
WE BELIEVE THAT WE WILL ALSO LIVE WITH HIM.

9 For we know that since Christ was Raised from the dead,
He cannot Die again;
Death no longer has Mastery over Him.

10 THE DEATH HE DIED,
HE DIED TO SIN ONCE FOR ALL;
BUT THE LIFE HE LIVES,
HE LIVES TO GOD.

11 IN THE SAME WAY,
COUNT YOURSELVES DEAD TO SIN
BUT ALIVE TO GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.

12 Therefore do not let Sin Reign in your Mortal body
So that you Obey its Evil Desires.

13 DO NOT OFFER THE PARTS OF YOUR BODY TO SIN,
AS INSTRUMENTS OF WICKEDNESS,

BUT RATHER OFFER YOURSELVES TO GOD,
AS THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BROUGHT FROM DEATH TO LIFE;

AND OFFER THE PARTS OF YOUR BODY TO HIM
AS INSTRUMENTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

FOR SIN SHALL NOT BE YOUR MASTER,
BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT UNDER LAW,
BUT UNDER GRACE.

Slave To Righteousness

15 What then?
Shall we Sin because we are not Under Law
But Under Grace?
BY NO MEANS!

16 Don't you know
That when you offer yourselves to someone
To Obey him as Slaves,
YOU ARE SLAVES TO THE ONE YOU OBEY--
Whether you are Slaves to Sin,
Which leads to Death,
Or to Obedience,
Which leads to Righteousness?

17 But thanks be to God
That, though you used to be Slaves to Sin,
You Wholeheartedly Obeyed the Form of Teaching
To which you were Entrusted.

18 YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE FROM SIN
AND HAVE BECOME SLAVES TO RIGHTEOUSNESS.

19 I put this in human terms
Because you are weak in your Natural selves.

Just as you used to Offer the parts of your body
IN SLAVERY TO IMPURITY
AND TO EVER INCREASING WICKEDNESS,
So now Offer them in Slavery to Righteousness
Leading to Holiness.

20 When you were Slaves to Sin,
You were Free from the Control of Righteousness.

21 WHAT BENEFIT DID YOU REAP AT THAT TIME
FROM THE THINGS YOU ARE NOW ASHAMED OF?

THOSE THINGS RESULT IN DEATH!

22 BUT NOW THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE FROM SIN
AND HAVE BECOME SLAVES TO GOD,

THE BENEFIT YOU REAP LEADS TO HOLINESS,
AND THE RESULT IS ETERNAL LIFE.

21 FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH,
BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE
IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.
(Romans 6)

AS CHRISTIANS, LET US REMEMBER

As Christians, let us remember,
That the Ultimate Reality--
The Outcome of all the Turmoil we see all around us,
Is the Return of Christ Jesus,
And His setting up His Kingdom on Earth as in Heaven
For a Thousand years.

That is what we are Praying for,
And that is the Sure Reality,
As Scripture has Foretold.

Those who love Christ Jesus
And are Obedient to His Word,
Will Rule and Reign with Him.

THE GREAT AMERICAN DIVIDE

 - - Wednesday, July 19, 2017
ANALYSIS/OPINION:
You could call it the tale of two election reflections, two competing points of view, two American perceptions of out-of-focus reality. Two important liberal voices “looked back” this week at the November election to try to figure out how and why Donald Trump, whom “everybody” despised and “nobody” wanted to win, actually did.
Less in anger than in searching for insights, we get glimpses of two radically different points of view in a radically divided America. 
The Washington Post follows Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton’s senior policy adviser, in a discussion with Yale Law School students over why he thinks Hillary lost, and what he thinks most contributed to the losing. 
The man who might have been Hillary’s secretary of state calls the campaign experience his personal Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
New Yorker magazine flits out of its urbane comfort zone to flyover country, and lands in Colorado to see “How Trump is Transforming Rural America.” 
Peter Hessler discovers a viewpoint as outrageous to New Yorker readers as what Yalies believe is to those who danced Inauguration Night away in Mesa County, Colo., at the Republican Women’s DeploraBall.
By far the more colorful and less predictable perceptions emerge from deep in the heart of Trumpland, in Grand Junction, Colo. 
Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in Colorado by a modest margin and won the state, but Donald Trump won twice as many counties, including Grand Junction, where unemployment, drug addiction, crime and suicide rates are high.
Here you hear how women became activists shortly after the leak of the Trump “Access Hollywood” tape, which captured the candidate talking dirty 11 years earlier about a certain part of the female anatomy. When this news broke two days before his second debate with Hillary, most of the pundits, consultants and other wise men thought it was the end of his campaign. 
But the Donald was not dead. Neither were his followers.
Women in Grand Junction gathered with other Trump fans to plot a “Women for Trump” rally, and more than a hundred of them showed up, impressive in the circumstances. 
They didn’t like the candidate’s lewd vulgarity, and they liked even less how the mainstream media kept repeating it. But nothing infuriated these women like Hillary’s remark that half of the Trump voters were racists, bigots, sexists and other undesirables that she put in a “basket of deplorables.”
“What she said was,” says Matt Patterson, a Columbia University graduate who was born in Grand Junction and who now lives in Washington and attended the Women’s DeploraBall in his hometown, 
“‘if you don’t vote for me, you’re morally unworthy to talk to, to take seriously’.” 
It was just the kind of condescending attitude toward conservative thinking he found at Columbia, where students believed that “only liberal views are legitimate.”
For many women it was fierce reinforcement of their perception of the Democratic candidate: Hillary wanted to be the first female in the Oval Office as a woman who detested women who didn’t see the world as she did.
Many liberal women thrive on vulgar language, reveling in “slut walks” and “pussy hats,” 
and many conservative women revel in being identified as Hillary’s “deplorables.” 
They cheer President Trump’s blunt counterpunching, which they see, despite his occasional outbursts of coarseness and ribaldry, as defending their own righteous dignity.
They are the people who Jake Sullivan at Yale must have had in the back (if not the front) of his mind when he concluded that Hillary’s losing was a rejection of an elite that had lost touch with the people she presumed to serve. 
He asked the Yale Law School students, how does the culture resolve the growing division and get to issues of dignity and alienation and identity? 
“How do we even ask the question without becoming the disconnected, condescending elite that we are talking about?” 
Hillary’s “prescription-heavy speeches” missed the point, and her cold programmatic solutions had nothing to say about the pain of others.
That was her husband’s forte, not hers. 
Her campaign was a “job interview,” to show off how she was Ms. Fixit. 
Jake Sullivan regrets she did not push a message pulsing with empathy, but most of us know that to do that would have required a different candidate. 
Donald Trump grasped early that globalism lacks soul, and spoke of his concern for the down, the out and the overlooked.
The New Yorker finds the Trump supporters in Grand Junction “more interesting and more decent than the man who inspires them.”
One of them, Matt Patterson, the Columbia University graduate, still roots doggedly for the president and his agenda. 
“The more they hate him, the more I want him to succeed,” he says. 
“Because what they hate about him is what they hate about me.”

My comments: Today, the Democrats are godless, Socialist, Secular Humanists; against God and His Word. As such there is No Hope for them--No Future for them. They Hate America as Founded and want to TRANSFORM her into a godless, Socialist TYRANNY. They Hate those who love America as Founded, and the God Who gave her Birth. This Divided America will Not Stand and it remains to be seen who will Prevail. In the End Chrsit will return and resolve the Issue.
