Accomplishments of Trump: Conservative Leaders send letter—Thank You, President Trump

Accomplishments of Trump:

Conservative Leaders send letter—Thank You, President Trump

It is Faith and Family, not bureaucracy and government, that make America great. We will defend privacy, free speech, free assembly, religious liberty, and the right to keep and bear arms. We support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. We believe in the dignity of work, and the sanctity of life.

We believe that children should be taught to love our country, honor our history, and always respect our great American flag. And we live by the words of our great national motto, In God We Trust. President Donald J. Trump, emphasized at every rally

President Trump Rose GardenWith the constant bashing of President Trump by the left-wing media and liberal politicians, it is good to be reminded of the accomplishments his administration has made to advance conservative principles.

I also encourage you to pray for President Trump every day. I’ve never seen such hatred for a president like the kind the media and “progressive” elites have for President Trump. It’s otherworldly, really. If I can use a biblical term, it’s spiritual warfare. While he has his flaws (as we all do), I know he loves our country and has surrounded himself with many fine patriotic Christians who only want to advance freedom and honor God with their actions and decisions. ~Tim Wildmon, President, American Family Association, signer of the letter below

Washington, DC

Dear President Trump,

On behalf of the conservative movement, we would like to thank you for the accomplishments your administration has achieved on behalf of the American people.

From a booming economy, to stronger protections at the border, to implementing strong protections for the unborn, to nominating constitutionalist judges to the federal bench, you have kept your promises to the voters that elected you.

Specifically, we want to applaud you for the following achievements:

  • A booming economy that has unemployment at its lowest level in fifty years, the highest median household income on record, a labor force that has grown by 2.1 million.
  • Poverty rates for African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans at record lows, and unemployment among women is at its lowest level in nearly 70 years.
  • Aggressively working to address the opioid crisis.
  • Signing the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 which resulted in more than 6 million American works receiving wage increases, bonuses, and increased benefits.
  • Rolling back nearly 8 regulations for every significant new one and cutting regulatory costs by more than $50 billion.
  • Repealing two particularly onerous regulations: the Obama-era Waters of the U.S. rule, and the Obama-era “Clean Power” Plan, and revoking California’s emissions waiver, all of which cost Americans millions of dollars and thousands of jobs.
  • Withdrawing America from the Paris climate treaty, which saved American families $20,000 a year.
  • Opening up federal lands and offshore areas to fossil fuel development and permitting the pipelines and infrastructure necessary to facilitate further development.
  • Signing the 2019 Executive Order to stop agency abuse of guidance documents.
  • Working to re-negotiate the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement to update the North American Free Trade Agreement and secure a better deal for American workers.
  • Keeping your campaign promise to build a new wall at the southern border.
  • Striking agreements with Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to help stop our illegal immigration crisis.
  • Taking action to reduce exploitation of our asylum loopholes, ensuring that the asylum process is there for those who truly need it.
  • Increasing cooperation with local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws.
  • Signing the Choice and Accountability Act to update and reform the Veteran’s Administration.
  • Ensuring strong protections of the Second Amendment.
  • A defeated ISIS caliphate and killing of terrorist leaders al-Baghdadi and Qassem Soleimani, both of whom were responsible for the deaths of Americans.
  • Recognizing Israel’s capital as Jerusalem and opening an American Embassy there, as well as recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
  • Withdrawing the United States from the ineffective and dangerous 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
  • Rebuilding America’s military, including instituting a Space Force, and supporting America’s men and women in uniform.
  • Appointing and securing confirmation for 187 federal judges who are strong constitutionalists.
  • Signing the 2017 Executive Order on Protecting Religious Liberty and the 2019 Executive Order protecting free speech on college campuses.
  • Ensuring that faith-based ministries do not have to choose between violating their religious beliefs by complying with Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, or closing their doors.
  • Establishing a new Conscience and Religious Freedom division at the Department of Health and Human Services to direct the agency’s efforts to protect religious freedom and people of faith in the healthcare industry.
  • Proposing a rule protecting the conscience rights of faith-based adoption providers.
  • Being the first administration to host a meeting at the United Nations on religious freedom.
  • Reinstating the Mexico City Policy to end federal funding of groups that promote or perform abortion overseas.
  • Restricting Title X money from going to organizations that perform, promote, or refer for abortion, while continuing to promote women’s health care by funding organizations who do not.
  • Allowing state Medicaid directors to exclude abortion providers from their Medicaid programs.
  • Ending funding of new medical research using human fetal tissue obtained from elective abortions.
  • Re-issuing guidance stating that hospitals may be required to treat infants born alive after abortions.
  • Opposing efforts at the United Nations to make abortion an international human right.
  • Hiring strong conservatives for important positions within the White House.

 

 

 

We are proud to support the work of your administration and these tremendous achievements.

Sincerely,

The Honorable Edwin Meese III
Attorney General
President Ronald Reagan (1985-1988)
Alfred S. Regnery
Chairman, Conservative Action Project
Chairman, Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund

Study—Printed Books are better than ebooks for learning;

Study finds paper more beneficial than screens

red-headed girl with bookJanuary-February 2020 – Intergraf, the European Federation for Print and Digital Communication, has released a study concerning the effects of reading and studying on paper as compared to studying on electronic devices or screens.

The study found evidence that reading from paper is much more beneficial than reading from a screen. The report states “…the digital disadvantage during elementary school was found to be two-thirds of the yearly increase in reading comprehension, meaning that students potentially only progressed one-third as much as they would have done had they been reading on paper instead of on a screen.” Additionally, the report found that even for younger generations, reading printed texts is still advantageous. Intergraf concluded that “young people who have grown up in the age of digitalization still read better on paper.”

Kanye West’s Christian conversion sparks free Bibles

Kanye West’s Christian conversion sparks distribution of free Bibles

Kanye WestJanuary-February 2020 – On October 30, the American Bible Society announced in response to the conversion and newfound Christian message of Kanye West  former secular rapper, that it would send up to 1,000 free Bibles to anyone in the country who wanted to know more about Jesus Christ. The ministry soon had to increase its offer after receiving more than 6,000 requests for Bibles all around the world. The American Bible Society continued sending out free Bibles until late November.

“Our hope,” said John Farquhar Plake, the director of ministry intelligence at the American Bible Society, “is that these Bibles will allow Kanye fans to get to know the extraordinary person of Jesus, who inspires not just musicians, but millions of believers around the world.”

AG Barr Notre Dame Speech: assault on religious freedom is ‘organized destruction’

AG Wm Barr

William Barr, Attorney General

January-February 2020 – Last October, Attorney General William Barr told an audience of Notre Dame law students the attack against U.S. religious freedoms “is not decay. It is organized destruction.”

Barr said progressives and friends in media, pop culture, academia, politics, and entertainment have an alliance to unleash “an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values.”

Washington Times writer Charles Hurt reported that the media responded to Barr’s speech by “squealing like a herd of mad swine racing for the lake.”

Hurt spotlighted more of the left’s ludicrous cultural stands: “The smorgasbord of gender options inspires snorts of laughter among serious people … [and] the infidels who are running higher education today … are, after all, the ones destroying America by poisoning the minds of children.”

He urged anyone who has not watched or heard the AG’s address to Google it – and pay attention to Barr’s warnings.

Here is Wm Barr’s important speech at Notre Dame in full, in 3 parts— well worth reading!

Texas—protect children from puberty blockers

Texas lawmakers push to protect children from puberty blockers

protect little boyJanuary-February 2020 – Dr. Anne Georgulas, a Texas pediatrician, reportedly diagnosed her seven-year-old son with gender dysphoria, assigned him the name “Luna,” enrolled him in kindergarten as a transgender girl, and planned to place him on puberty blockers against the will of his father.

After a jury decided against the father’s participation in decision-making, Family District Court Judge Kim Cooks overruled and awarded joint managing conservatorship on October 24. Less than two weeks later, the boy attended school for the first time dressed in boy’s attire.

The father, Jeffrey Younger, had argued in court that his son chose to wear boy’s clothes and use his legal name when not in his mother’s presence.

The story sparked national controversy, including an AFA sponsored petition in support of the father’s rights.

Research conducted by endocrinologist Dr. Michael Laidlaw of the Heritage Foundation revealed that children as young as eight are sometimes given opposite sex hormones.

Texas lawmakers are considering legislation that would qualify attempts to gender “transition” minors as child abuse. According to Rep. Steve Toth (R-TX), “upwards of 500 minors are being transitioned in Texas. We didn’t protect these children in the 86th [legislative session]. The wrath of Texans will be heard in the 87th.”

Parenting Advice: Be Present as Families to overcome Smartphone Addiction

Parenting Advice:

 Be Present as Families to overcome Smartphone Addiction

 

Does this subtle culture war threaten our very republic?

Exclusive: Chuck Norris advocates for real Christmas presence among families this year

By Chuck Norris

communication barrier in familiesCulture wars come in all types of shapes and sizes. But the largest and most powerful might be those that are so pervasive and subtle that they come across as benign and even positive.

I might be a little old-school, but I think there’s an education from yesteryear that needs to become more in vogue today, especially among younger generations. I’m all for most technological advances we’ve made. But when that electronic gadgetry stifles our families and social settings, when will the majority of patriots recognize it can cripple our country, too?

Fifty years ago, the first permanent link between computers at UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute was formed. This connection would grow into a large network of research and military computers and would later become the public internet we know today.

A UCLA professor named Leonard Kleinrock developed much of the theoretical groundwork for that first digital network and forerunner to the internet. The one thing Kleinrock says he never saw coming was the rise of social media and social networks. He told Fast Company’s Mark Sullivan that this is where many of the internet’s (and hence, humans’) biggest problems have surfaced and gathered strength. Kleinrock believes that the inherent fault of social spaces is users’ anonymity and lack of accountability.

On a positive note, Kurtzberg points out how technology allows colleagues to work together from afar, friends to keep in touch without restraint and grandparents to touch base with grandkids; it’s just a matter of finding that ever-elusive balance as to how and when we use our technological devices.

A column in Forbes reported, “Cellphones used to just be communication tools. Now, they’re GPS, cameras, gaming consoles, health trackers, and the list goes on. We turn to our devices for everything – from waiting in line at the grocery store or reading the news, to filing our taxes or controlling the thermostat. We don’t just use our smartphones for everything – we rely on them.”

But who’s going to tell us or model for our kids where the fine line between reliance and addiction is?

smartphone addictionForbes elaborated, “The brain on ‘smartphone’ is the same as the brain on cocaine: we get an instant high every time our screen lights up with a new notification. It’s all thanks to dopamine, the feel-good chemical that gets released every time you do something you enjoy, like eating your favorite meal or getting a hundred likes on your latest Instagram post. Dopamine reinforces (and motivates) behavior that makes us feel good and, in turn, can create addiction.”

Forbes added this clear and present danger: “The scariest part about smartphone addiction is that it can affect our physical and mental health, our relationships and our productivity. America’s obsession with smartphones has even been compared to the obesity epidemic. That’s because, just like drug or gambling addictions, smartphones provide an escape from reality.”

“At the same time, having access to a constant flow of information has all but destroyed attention spans: a few years ago, a widely publicized study proved goldfish can focus longer than we can. This increase in ADD-like symptoms has been linked to the overuse of smartphones.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that interacting via screens is markedly different from face-to-face interactions. But this distance and anonymity is where the danger lurks. Multiple studies show that people lie more, are more negative and are less cooperative when they use digital means of communicating. This clearly can have a toll on the mental health of those who come under attack. It also creates an overall shallowness of engagement people have with those around them – enhanced by the fact that the average American touches their smartphone some 2,600 times a day. It creates a sea of people around us who are present, but not really there.

2,600 times? Yes, you read that correctly.

According to Statista, in 2018, 96% of people from 18 to 29 years old owned a smartphone. More than half of children in the United States now own a smartphone by the age of 11.

A nationally representative survey by Common Sense Media of smartphone use among children ages 8-18 shows that teens today spend more than seven hours a day on these devices. “Tweens,” ages 8-12, spend nearly five hours a day.

Somewhere, sometime in the near future, there has to come some type of social boomerang – an anti-media revolution that turns back the clock to simpler times when people looked into each other’s faces instead of Facebooks. Maybe we should start that revolution this Christmas Day. Maybe we should seize back control of our social settings by returning to the age-old practice of remembering a Sabbath rest, where 100% presence is key to building relationships with God, our families, friends and communities. Please reflect upon the great wisdom of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, regarding his advice and practice of a weekly “smartphone sabbath.”

family walkGifting your presence is not only your greatest Christmas gift but, I believe, also the most powerful weapon you have in your arsenal to make America great again. A host of studies show that when you do, you will simultaneously stimulate your own personal growth, balance and health, too. Who knew?

Let’s take it one step further. How about rediscovering and regaining control of your presence as a No. 1 New Year’s resolution for you, your marriage, family, church and community? Start with giving your presence on Christmas Day. Then observe others’ reactions and even your own internal feelings as you’re separated from the power of electronic gadgetry. Discern for yourself whether or not what I’ve shared in this column is true for your life, too.

Jesus with peoplePresence of God: Immanuel means God with Us

I don’t believe it is a coincidence that the very heart of Christmas is even about God gifting His presence. In the Bible, the Christ child is called “Immanuel,” which means “God with us.” His presence is still His greatest present to you, too.
