'under God'
got this in the mail this am
it'spretty old

This vote only requires you to forward it to someone else for it to be counted.
As many of you are aware, the Knights of Columbus submitted to congress that the words "Under God" should be added to our pledge of allegiance. Both Houses of Congress passed the law and it was signed by President Eisenhower in 1954. The information below was based on a poll taken by NBC on what percentage should keep the words in our pledge versus the percent who want it removed.
If you read this and agree that "under God" should be left in the pledge, then just forward it to others and you have voted for it to be left in. If you delete it and don't forward it you are voting NO to "under God..." Easy, huh?

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation 'under God', indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
This is not sent for discussion. If you agree, forward it ... If you don't, delete it. I don't want to know one way or the other. By my forwarding it, you know how I feel.
86% to keep God in the Pledge of Allegiance and 14% against. That is a pretty commanding' public response.
I was asked to send this on, if I agreed or delete if I didn't. Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe the word God should stay. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having God in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why should our Nation cater to 14%?

If you agree, pass this on If not, simply delete.

Dear God ! They Caught Them All - Putin Gives Trump 160 Terabytes Of Com Intercepts
By: U.S. National News

Dear God; They Caught Them ALL! Putin Gives Trump 160 Terabytes of Communication Intercepts; ALL people behind fake "Russia Collusion" - False Flag Chemical Attacks in Syria, Sabotage of Brexit, Nefarious Clinton activities & More
Tuesday, 17 July 2018 20:30

Thanks to my long-time former colleagues from the Intelligence Community, whom I worked with in my years with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, from both inside and outside the US, I am pleased to be the ONLY media outlet to be able to report this extraordinary information . . . .

The jig is finally up. The Dominoes are all in position to be knocked over. The "elite" have phoned, faxed, and emailed many of themselves right into prison, or worse. (When the public finds out, probably "worse.")

At the meeting in Helsinki, Finland, between Presidents Putin of Russia and Trump of the USA, the Russians gave to Trump at least 160 TERABYTES of Russian Intelligence Intercepts which expose horrifying activities of many, many, people to deliberately foment social, cultural, and political chaos, violent riots, demonstrations, media smears, phony scandals, and fake news.

Some of those intercepts reveal who has been financing weapons, supplies, travel, hotel, vehicle rentals and secure communications gear for Terrorist groups, inside Syria, Iraq, and terror attacks in Europe and the US.

Among the intercepted communications are mostly international phone calls, faxes, emails by members of the US Congress, US Senate, federal Judges, state-level elected officials from California, Oregon, Washington, New York (City & State), New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland and Virginia. Once those communications left the United States, they became fair game for any country to spy on.

A great number of these communications were encrypted, but Russia has found a way to BREAK much of the encryption! And as part of their effort to improve relations with Trump, they provided the original encrypted versions of the intercepts AND the key which decrypts them so the US can use US-obtained intercepts (which may still be encrypted) along with the Russian-provided decryption key to prove the info is accurate and unedited!!!

Numerous high-ranking officials and well known wealthy people have been caught red-handed scheming together and with foreign governments along with radical leftist billionaires both inside and outside the US, to foment -- and finance -- extraordinary acts of political, social, and cultural chaos including riots, violent attacks, political unrest and more.

Some high-level MANAGERS at gigantic social media companies have received literally millions of dollars in pay-offs to establish or use under-the-radar company policies to impose severe censorship on certain views and to silence certain people; often times without the knowledge or consent of the Highest Executives or Boards of Directors of those companies! These pay-offs USURP actual executive power in some giant social media outlets.

High level mass-media Producers, Editors, and some Writers in the US, UK, and elsewhere in Europe, have been paid-off with VAST sums of money to launch phony media smears. Push scandals. Create and report FAKE news stories. All to sew dissent, foment unrest, cause political and social instability. When this information is revealed. MAJOR (Like REALLY MAJOR) news outlets will be completely ruined. Their company stock (or that of their parent company) will plummet to zero because their credibility - their believability - will be utterly destroyed. Ad revenues will plummet because the public simply will not trust these outlets anymore.

A very significant number of US INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY persons are also, sadly, caught. It is now clear there is a cadre of people inside the US Intelligence Community, who have been misusing their positions to do things they were never cleared to do; the kinds of things that get people Indicted, tried, convicted and . . . . executed under our federal legal system! Yes, you read that right: certain specific US Intel people could literally face the death penalty for some of the things they have now been positively caught doing.

Even more sadly, a very few high-ranking US Military officials have also been caught. Intercepts from field communications are going to send some of those Officials to Leavenworth for the rest of their lives. (Cont'd Below)

Moreover, a very significant number of employees/officials inside the US State Department have coordinated activities the likes of which will make the American people recoil in horror. In fact, I was explicitly told

"Foggy Bottom (the nickname for the State Dept.) is turning out to be THE epicenter of evil for a lot of things . . ."
Worst of all, some of the Signals Intelligence grabbed-up certain well-known individuals inside the US Department of Justice. What these people have done will no doubt smash the reputation of the legal system for decades. Not only are some people inside the Justice Department going to prison, their liability for things they've done WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION, will expose them to personal liability which will utterly destroy them and their families civilly.

At the highest levels of these intercepts are allegedly names like Soros, Rothschild, and very recognizable others.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and United States President Donald Trump, met in Helsinki, Finland early this week, for about two hours privately. No staff. No aids. No media.

During that meeting, Putin laid out the inner workings of the vast global network of "elites" and the activities they have engaged in to bring wars, refugees, all manner of social and political chaos to countries around the world, much of it in the USA. Russia even provided charts showing "organizational" structures (which are not really "organizations" but more defacto operational realities); who is tasked with what topics or activities, how much they have been paid and by whom.

Actual copies of communications and Signals Intercepts with descrambled recordings of phone calls, descrambled "secure" fax transmissions, descrambled encrypted emails. Vast reports on money transactions via wire transfer, control numbers, account names, amounts, dates, purposes . . . and the recipient info too.

In total, more than 160 TERABYTES of this type of data was given to President Trump in the form of 1 Terabyte USB Flash Memory Drives. The USB drives are DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drives which hold 1 terabyte of data each.

The level of criminal conspiracy is so enormous, and the global scale and reach of these efforts is so gigantic, it boggles the mind.

Bankers and titans of industry are also involved. I can also report that Union bosses figure prominently in the intercepts.

The opposition to BREXIT is being funded and orchestrated by people on BOTH SIDES of British politics and the motivation is two-fold: They want Britain to remain in Europe to lessen its power and, they HATE the Royal Family.

According to the information given to me, some of the most virulent Torie "Remainers" joked with like-minded Labour members about "looking forward to the day when Britain sheds it archaic Monarchy and comes under total rule by the EU." These are ELECTED officials who are literally trying to destroy the sovereignty of their own country!

The Clintons
Turns out, Bill and Hillary have been under surveillance since Bill was first elected President in 1992. Almost EVERY dirty deal, alleged shake-down, alleged kick-back, and some things described to me as "the ultimate acts (plural) of nefarious nature" are all neatly recorded and indexed by Russia. Now, I'm told, President Trump has it all.

Closely Guarded Secret Work
Trusted elements inside the Trump Administration (who have been sworn to absolute secrecy, even ordered to flatly DENY the very existence of this material in order to maintain security) are being tasked to sort through, analyse and catalog all activities turned over by Russia; paying particular attention to any activity which resulted in violence, death or property damage, so as to be able to criminally prosecute ALL the Conspirators based on any end-result violence or property loss/damage. Whether the Conspirators intended such acts or not, the acts themselves "were a foreseeable consequence" of their efforts, thus making them ALL guilty.

Working from the top, these trusted elements inside the Trump Administration will take each effort and follow it down to the end results, documenting any acts of state-level violence, which thereby makes ALL participants in that entire effort subject to Conspiracy charges. Conspiracy is the likely charge as opposed to bringing Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization (RICO) cases, because RICO cases require predicate felonies which often had not occurred.

I asked if any of this evidence can actually be used in court since none of it was obtained via Warrant? I was told that ALL of it is admissible because the United States did not solicit the information and had no part in it being illegally obtained! Thus, there is no "fruit of a poison tree" to block admissibility!

Hal Turner Commentary
Literally HUNDREDS of ultra-wealthy and/or very high profile people are about to have their entire existence caught-up in the wheels of justice.

And as a person who has been caught-up in the wheels of justice myself, I can tell you those wheels may turn slowly, but they GRIND UP everything and everyone they encounter.

I am not yet privy to particular facts or incident covered by this material. I am told to expect to get information, but no time frame was told to me.

It seems as though the Putin-Trump meeting in Helsinki has, in fact, become the worst nightmare of a whole slew of people.

Prior to the summit, many people took extraordinary efforts to try to derail the meeting altogether.

After the meeting, those folks and their minions are making enormous noise about anything they can.

They're worried they're caught. They think they might be caught. I can report tonight, they are right to worry; they ARE caught!

They think that creating distractions through scandals will prevent them from being held accountable. It won't.

The jig is up. The dominoes are about to fall.

Some of these people would do well to get their affairs in order and commit suicide. Because when the truth comes out about what they've been doing, and the things they've done, their world will be smashed by the legal system. Their entire existence, their fortunes and their family name will be ruined forever.

Communist China Demolishes Well Known Christian Mega Church Despite Lawful Permits
Communist China Demolishes Well Known Christian Mega Church Despite Lawful Permits

On July 17th, 2018 Communist Authorities demolished a well-known Christian Church. The state-sanctioned Church was built in 2006 and has all the necessary paperwork.

Droves of Authorities affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party arrived at the Liangwang Catholic Church and forcibly removed Pastors from within the church and confiscated cellphones. Then authorities razed the Church in fifteen minutes.

Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness, a group that regularly covers Christian Persecution in China, later posted several pictures of the scene on Facebook.

Previously, several other Churches have been demolished by Communist authorities for little to no reason at all. However, the Liangwang Catholic Church was reportedly destroyed because of urban zoning or commercial purposes.

The building itself was located next to an exit on the Xi’an-Hanzhong highway and it is also thought that the government likely destroyed the church to diminish the local Christian presence.

Gina Goh, ICC’s Regional Manager, said, “The disproportionate manpower used to demolish this church goes to show that China is fearful of Christians. The government knew that the demolition in the name of urban zoning would be met with resistance, so it ensured success by taking extreme measures. Despite their best efforts to intimidate the Church with actions like this, the government cannot destroy the faith and resilience of Chinese Christians.”

At the end of 2017, it was reported that Communist Authorities were forcing Christians in the Jiangxi province’s Yugan county to replace Christian symbols and images of Jesus Christ with pictures of the Chinese Prime Minister Xi Jinping.

In addition, in April of 2018 China banned all sales of Bible’s from online retailers, to further control Christianity. Furthermore, two days before the Bibles were banned from online purchase, the Chinese government released a document outlining how it intends to promote “Chinese Christianity” over the next five years.

According to the document, one of the government’s key objectives is to reinterpret and retranslate the Bible in order to enhance “Chinese-style Christianity and theology.”

ChinaAid and other Watchdog groups who are familiar with the matter have reported that the persecution of Christians in China is at its highest level since the Cultural Revolution of Mao.

Pastor Bob Fu, founder and president of ChinaAid, has said that President Xi Jinping will go down in history as “a sort of Chairman Mao, Jr.,” who carried out a “little Cultural Revolution.”.

This is A Key Moment, hard evidence of Russian Intelligence Operations Working With Republicans
Is this going to be labeled as fake, or passed off as who gives a damn?

I can already hear the defenses of, "others did it too", "It didn't have an effect", "Trump lies about everything, so what?".

Russia is the enemy of free nations, NATO has sanctions on Russia and is taking positions against Putin's violations.

Those who have flipped to Trump's view that Russia is our friend and ally, and deserves our economic and military support needs to turn in your patriot card and tattoo a swastika on your forehead so we can identify you easier. You are no friend and supporter of this country and democracy.

The Fence Test This is straight forward country thinking.
The Fence Test

This is straight forward country thinking.
by Jeff Foxworthy

Which side of the fence?

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
A Democrat demands that those they don't like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it
If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican is unhappy with an election, he grumbles and goes to work the next day.
If a Democrat is unhappy with an election, he burns down a Starbucks, throws rocks at cops and takes two-weeks off for therapy.

If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended. "

Well, I forwarded it

Trump Was Fully Briefed By Intelligence Before Inauguration And Shown Emails By Russian Operatives Ordering Election Interference
A newly elected president who has been fully briefed on a threat to national security, with a thoroughness that included showing him emails and documents obtained from a highly placed Kremlin spy leaking high level documents to our intelligence services, has a 100% obligation to accept and act upon that knowledge, not to mention pursuing it with every intelligence resource at our country's disposal.

It has been spoken by those involved in the briefing that Trump grudgingly admitted that it looked like there was Russian election interference...

So for Trump during those days when he should have been operating on established facts and US and other nation's intelligence, at least until he had a chance to see other facts that could indicate that this was false information, was directly and blatantly lying to the public every time he said there was no Russian interference.

This is what Nixon was going to get impeached for, the exact thing. Lying to the public and saying that something he was fully aware of was not the case.

This lie has serious consequences, as a result...
*Meaningful investigations have been blocked, why waste time on fake news and witch hunts, when they weren't it's obstruction
*With real intelligence that shows otherwise it paints a different picture of GOP members who have obviously obstructed investigations
*Now that sensitive facts are starting to come out it becomes way more obvious that there were republicans who were knowingly dealing with Russians and stolen information that was hacked
*Trump talking about what a good thing Wikileaks was looks a lot different, he predicted "leaks"
*It changes his defense of Flynn, Manafort, and others

There is a criminal statute about lying to the public, and I don't think the defense that Trump is a liar, everyone knows it is going to work when it's of this nature from the time he took office. In the Watergate case it had been determined at that time that Nixon could be indicted, he resigned first. It's untested law and may be seen before the Supreme Court, which is why a justice who has already expressed that he feels a president can't be charged or held accountable for anything is not acceptable.

I'm waiting to see how many republicans decide it's time to impeach, and the ones that have something to worry about as far as collusion won't. I'm wondering about the ones that have announced resignations.

Barron Trump may not be allowed to keep soccer ball given to Trump by Putin
Have we gone nuts?
Barron Trump may not be allowed to keep soccer ball given to Trump by Putin
July 18, 2018 by Jerry McCormick
Barron Trump may not be allowed to keep soccer ball given to Trump by Putin
Image via lev radin /
You know things are bad when something as simple as a soccer ball causes political fury.

After Putin gave Trump a soccer ball from the World Cup, which Trump earmarked for his youngest son, Barron, Trump’s enemies were quick to point out Barron might not be able to keep it.

It’s Always Something
The soccer ball has barely been in Melania’s lap for five minutes when social media started blowing up about the “gift.”

You see, according to our laws, presidents are not supposed to accept gifts from foreign governments or their respective leaders.

While that is the official protocol, we all know this “law” is not exactly at the top of the Justice Department’s to do list for enforcement.

Technically, though, the gift belongs to the people of the United States.

Point being, it could be displayed in the White House, but it is nothing that should be taken off premise, even after Trump’s term is over.

In other words, Barron may not be able to “keep” the gift other than picking out where it is displayed.

Sad State
It is truly a sad state of the country when something this simple has to be politicized.

It is even worse that the soccer ball received more press coverage than a Secret Service agent that passed away and a police officer that lost his life in the line of duty.

It is just another tool Trump’s enemies want to use against him to create bad publicity for the President.

Even worse are the calls of the President being a traitor over the press conference.

Few would argue the fact the press conference was not one of Trump’s finer moments, but traitor?

Should Barron Be Able to Keep the Soccer Ball?
Sensationalism … it is what the mainstream media, liberals, Democrats, and the GOP establishment have come to embrace.

Like we said, when they make a soccer ball given as a gift a front-page headline, something is truly wrong with the way the media covers this presidency.

A conservative question
From Quora....

What would it take for the deep divide in American politics and ideologies to be mended? I am a conservative, but would like to see more cooperation between the left and the right. Is this possible?
Horst Engels

Updated Jun 27
I’m going to work very hard to avoid spilling my personal bile into this answer.
You seem to be seeking an answer, and I will try to give it as constructively as possible.
I, and many other people on the left are extremely angered at the lack of consistency and accountability on the right.

What I mean by consistency is the double standard applied to the presidents, on specifically these things: When a Bush is in office, he passes a bailout package. When Obama comes into office, with the financial crisis still deepening, bailouts are now to be opposed. When Bush was about to leave office the financial crisis kicked off, but 2 months later Republicans are blaming Obama for not having fixed it already. When Bush is in office, Fox News acknowledges that the President really has no control over the price of gas. When Obama is in office, it’s his fault.
I could go on and on and on and on, but there are montage videos you can watch where Fox lambastes Obama for something, then lauds the wisdom of Bush or Trump for the same thing. And it’s not just Fox - it’s conservatives in general. Govt. spending is OUT OF CONTROL while a Democrat is in office, and then a conservative takes office, spends even more, and . . . silence. Clinton’s blowjob is highcrimes and impeachment, Trump paying pornstars and bringing out a new story every 3 days is just fine.
As a result, it’s hard for liberals to believe conservatives actually have any principles at all.

Second, a bit of accountability. You know how we all like to say that moderate muslims need to be responsible for reporting on, and talking down, the extremists in their midst? Yeah - that - with conservatives.

Like it or not, the inauguration of Trump was greeted in some hotel conference facilities by Hitler salutes and chants of “Heil Trump!” It may be embarrassing, but Trumps administration contained people who were literally paid by Turkey to act on their behalf, who failed to disclose that fact. Mike Flynn was literally a paid foreign agent, who failed to register as such and did not disclose this to the government. Manafort has a similar problem. Trump and his press secretaries tell baldfaced lies on a daily basis. Trump helped his son falsify his statement to the government regarding his meeting with Russians. Trump and his family are cheapening the office of the president by using it to secure business deals.

If YOU want to heal the divide between liberals and conservatives YOU need to start calling out the corruption, the racists, the liars, and the climate change deniers in your party. In other words, you need to get right with the truth.

Telling half-lies and evasions and then calling them “alternative facts” while smirking isn’t clever - it’s destructive to our country. Starting a war on the media isn’t just good fun. The media has an integral role to play in keeping our govt. honest.

What would go a long way toward healing the divide is when conservatives show they actually care about America, which is to say they support the principles that are foundational to the successful functioning of our state. Freedom of the press. Freedom of information. Freedom of religion. Fact-based policies. Humane policies.

But until that happens, just some consistency and accountability would be n
