Robert Jeffess says God Will Authorize Trump to Smite Kim-Jong Un

The Right-Scoop, a conservative leaning blog picked up this scoop from the fanatical preacher Robert Jeffess

“One of Trump’s biggest supporters, Pastor Jeffress, says that God has authorized Trump to “take out” Kim Jong Un.

God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. https://t.co/6E60XLNVQP

— Dr. Robert Jeffress (@robertjeffress) August 8, 2017

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong-Un. I’m heartened to see that our president — contrary to what we’ve seen with past administrations who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors — will not tolerate any threat against the American people. When President Trump draws a red line, he will not erase it, move it, or back away from it. Thank God for a President who is serious about protecting our country.”

The problem is that a protracted war with that guy will too much bloodshed and send a fragile world economy into a massive recession. War is never worth it. Even with a fanatic like him.

It is probably better to accept that North Koreans need to be viewed as a rational player who wants control over the regime and wants the attention. I do not see that Kim Jong Un will want to see his iron grip of power seized from him by a foolish, idiotic war. The last country that seriously waged war was Germany who had the economic ablity to withstand a protracted war against the Western allies. If the Hitler did not have hubris of invading the Soviet Union and accepted rule over Western Europe with Franco and Mussloni as other rulers, the Third Reich could have theoretically won the war.

But Kim Jong Un does not have the industrial might of the Nazis along with a constrained view of war, he knows that he can only rule his “Hermit Kingdom” and that nuclear weapons are designed to beat the US and China at a game of high-stakes poker with North Korea being the winner with increased economic power by having an ICBM. Only a chickenhawk like Trump is willing to go all-in with Kim Jong Un.

And Jeffress with his apocalypse view would be thinking that Trump would be the vessel that would smite that the Hermit Kingdom in wrath of God’s judgment through the US army. Well, Jeffress, your view of God is completely wrong and will lead in a massive disaster. I am not saying that the fundie’s concept of God is wrong but rather, this specific interpretation of biblical eschatological viewpoint is playing with Russian rolleute. I think Jesus would have give him Mr. Jeffress a severe admoishment. While Mr. Jeffress is probably a believer, his theological views are so out there that I think that God thinks that he is nuts.

Louis Gomhert thinks that Obama is Some Batman Villia

Representative Louie Gomhert who is always known for saying stupid things has this to say about President Obama

Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert picked a very Louie Gohmert way to end 2016.

Speaking on Fox & Friends on Friday, Gohmert likened President Barack Obama to the Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul for his handling of refugees.

A quick reminder: Ra’s al Ghul, in the movie “Batman Begins,” frees a prison full of dangerous criminals as part of a plan to destroy Gotham. And, just FYI: Ra’s al Ghul is Arabic for “head of the demon.”

Gohmert, known for some far out comments about his political opponents, claims Obama took direction from the Islamic State, who promised to deliver terrorists along with refugees.:

Are the Syrian refugees really criminal or people trying to flee a complex war that was started by the US and multiple actors in the Middle East.  To call them criminals is a baseless act

I do agree that there is plenty of Islamic radicals around but to call most Syrians criminals is an act of bullying in my opinion. .

Guns: A Personal View Based on CNN Comment on Youtube at Jason Bourne Movie

viewed this quote while watching a CNN video on Matt Damon’s new movie. The commenter states – “So tough yet he doesn’t believe in our 2nd amendment. He can watch the movie by himself.”. The reality struck me that I almost agree with 100% on Matt Damon’s view on guns. However, I was raised in a liberal household in a suburban area with parents who worked in education. My parents did not own guns and were never gun enthusiasts. Therefore, it is much easier for me to for gun control laws than the commenter is. However, I probably need to understand that commenter probably has a conservative view of the world and a strong view of personal liberty where a personal liberty is often defined by the ability to own any firearm that is permitted by law. I might not like that view, but i have to take into perspective that other people put so much emotional attachment into a symbolic ability to own firearms especially high-powered firearms. It is hard for a lot of people to learn that by not owning such high-power weapons that you are actually saving lives and not letting those weapons be sold in the marketplace and eventually to placed in the hands of criminals. Freedom to the own these weapons is more important for having sense of personal liberty and individual ruggedness than any potential impact in saving lives in some mass shooting.
Well, I can understand these people viewpoints but I respectfully disagree with them

My Two Cents on the Final Resolution on the Clinton E-Mail Scandal

t is clear that Hillary did not have criminal intent today in her actions but her actions shows a clear disregard for security protocols because she felt that the strict classification security proctols were too much of a hassle and she felt that she was above the law. Such does not show criminal intent in the slighest disregard, but clearly shows gross hypocrisy in the face of government security rules. If this is the case by her pattern of leadership, then the government needs to stop classifying so many documents and start to release more information into the public domain so the public can find what is going with the government. If you prefer to work in secrecy and yet do not follow the established security protocols, then the documents that the government should be claimed to be classified should be released into the public domain for scrutiny and transparency. It also shows the level of trust that we should put in the leader. For these reasons, Senator Sanders is the superior candidate because he respects the security protocols and at the same time would maintain open and transparent government. Unfortunately, we have a leader that prefers secrecy and does not obey the existing protocols. At least Bush and Cheney in this area followed the rule of law and ensure that proper protocols were followed with securing classified documents (even though they went way overboard in this area).

Missouri GOP Thinks It is Good Idea to Pay 13 Weeks of Unemployment

The AP reports

“JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s Republican-led Senate appears to have enough support to override Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a bill that would enact one of the nation’s strictest limits for unemployment benefits.

Although the legality of the veto override remains in doubt, sponsoring Sen. Mike Kehoe confirmed this past week that he plans to press ahead with the effort, and several senators who were absent when the bill originally passed told The Associated Press that they would support the legislation.

If every senator who originally voted for the bill does so again, the additional votes from the previously absent senators would provide the two-thirds majority needed to successfully override a veto.

The measure would cut the weeks of benefits available for laid-off workers from the current 20, which already ranks as one of the shortest in the nation, to as few as 13, if the statewide unemployment rate remains below 6 percent. Missouri’s jobless rate was 5.8 percent in July.

An unemployment rate of over 9 percent would be needed to receive 20 weeks of benefits under the vetoed bill that links the duration of benefits to the jobless rate.

The bill also would increase the amount that must be in the state’s unemployment fund before the fees are lowered for businesses that contribute to the fund and would add severance pay or termination packages as wages for unemployment aid eligibility purposes”

This is completely heartless bill that does not understand it takes people time to find a job. Even if a person is diligently networking and doing everything right, it still takes time for people to find the right job. Also, people today are economically squeezed to the core and do not have the vast personal savings to save for one to two years employment.

Not everybody lives in house with where they share a room with somebody and has rock bottom rental prices. Not everybody has the ability to obtain special pricing for public transit or qualify for Medicaid benefits because the stupid state government is opposed on conservative.

Even for employers, it creates a more desperate labor market which does help employers weed out bad candidates and let people get time to increase their interview skills and job preparation.

Job hunting take times. I know from my experience that it took me two years to find the right job that barely pays me enough to live on but it is good fit where I am at in my career. Yet, I live in shared housing with ten other people and pay rock bottom prices for the bus because I qualify for disablity pricing.

Other people have rents and kids to feed. They do not have the luxury of bus system that runs frequently in a major metropolitian area or have 700 jobs in Craigslist posting each week. Where I lives, jobs are plenty to be found even though it is very expensive to live there. But there are jobs where I live and lots of jobs.

Most people in Missouri live in small towns where one to three employers make up the major part of the workforce. Due to competitve advantages of free trade, jobs have migrated from small-town factories to overseas factories just because that is how global free trade works. And these towns will have very few openings if that.

In my opinion, given the current nature of labor market, people need to have 52 weeks of unemployment pay and up to 99 weeks during the worst of time. In places like Missouri, people need 52 weeks to find a job and not 13 weeks like the GOP producing. The manfacturing jobs that once drove the state are now gone and it just takes longer to find a lower-paying service sector job. Also, people cannot flee to North Dakota to work in the energy sector because those jobs are disappearing.

The idea of “pull your bootstrap” economy does not exist and not everybody to dig ditches at the local Labor Ready for $7.25 an hour. You cannot also migrate to some other part of the country where the economy is booming because the commodity markets are crashing.

The real way is entirely restructing of the economy and blowing up the giantatic trans-national companies for smaller companies and worker-owned companies. However, until that happens, people are going to need to longer-term unemployment insurance and not this cheap 13 weeks unemployment because being unemployed is considered to be character defect. The reality that the GOP does not admit their part in destroying the manfacturing sector and then denies the people the method to collect on long-term unemployment benefits while they retrain at a community college in some other lower-paying service sector position.
