"In America, we don't worship government, we worship God"

More Christians -- Catholics and evangelical Protestants alike -- voted for Donald Trump than for any Republican presidential candidate since Reagan. Liberals don't get it. He's been divorced, twice.

Conservatives do. He's Christian -- sins and all.



President Trump's commencement speech at Liberty University on Saturday was a great example. This was his first commencement as president. He mentioned that early on:
It's been a little over a year since I've spoken on your beautiful campus and so much has changed. Right here, the class of 2017 dressed in cap and gown, graduating to a totally brilliant future. And here I am standing before you as President of the United States, so I'm guessing — there are some people here today who thought that either one of those things, either one, would really require major help from God. Do we agree? And we got it.
Throughout the speech he praised family, the military, and God.
Today you end one chapter but you are about to begin the greatest adventure of your life. Just think for a moment of how blessed you are to be here today at this great, great university, living in this amazing country, surrounded by people who you love and care about so much. Then ask yourself, with all of those blessings, and all of the blessings that you've been given, what will you give back to this country and, indeed, to the world? What imprint will you leave in the sands of history? What will future Americans say we did in our brief time right here on Earth? Did we take risks? Did we dare to defy expectations? Did we challenge accepted wisdom and take on established systems? I think I did, but we all did and we're all doing it.
Or did we just go along with convention, swim downstream, so easily with the current and just give in because it was the easy way, it was the traditional way or it was the accepted way? Remember this, nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. Following your convictions means you must be willing to face criticism from those who lack the same courage to do what is right — and they know what is right, but they don't have the courage or the guts or the stamina to take it and to do it. It's called the road less traveled.
That came from a man who had to clear the trees, bridge the gorges, and build his path to the White House.
In your hearts are inscribed the values of service, sacrifice and devotion. Now you must go forth into the world and turn your hopes and dreams into action. America has always been the land of dreams because America is a nation of true believers. When the pilgrims landed at Plymouth they prayed. When the founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times, because in America we don't worship government we worship God. That is why our elected officials put their hands on the Bible and say, 'So help me God,' as they take the oath of office. It is why our currency proudly declares, 'In God we trust,' and it's why we proudly proclaim that we are one nation under God every time we say the pledge of allegiance.
That is a very Christian message.

And accurate.

Marxists worship government.

Real Americans don't.

By the way, the NBC headline was "Trump at Liberty University Bashes ‘Critics’ in First Commencement Address."
On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

  2. An outstanding speech. Loved the lines about swimming upstream... do the hard things... to be a critic is easy and pathetic... and at 17 minutes or so when he talks about their football schedule is pure fun. Great speech.
