Many cold opportunists have used the tragedy in Texas as an opportunity to score cheap points politically and culturally. Those with cold hearts look past the beautiful stories of regular Texans helping their neighbors in need and the outpouring of treasure and love from hurting average Americans, and only see cause for continuing to attack one another.

People have used the tragedy to push climate change agendas, attack the president, and attack Texas culture.

Some are even using it to attack Christians and those who believe in God.

A popular YouTube personality known as Onision tweeted this message with a photo of Houston underwater:

There are a lot of Christians in Texas, so any of you want to explain your god doing this?

The responses were … beautiful.

Here is an important scripture for good times and bad:

Matthew 25:37-40 says:

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

And here is a fact:

Good question:

Many just thought he was using the suffering of others to score cheap points:

He is also converting people … to religion:

And some people were just a bit mean:

Speaking for all of Texas:

Here are the facts: People of all faiths, races, and backgrounds have been horrifically affected by the historic natural disaster in Houston. The death toll grows by the day, and it will be years before the damage has been repaired. All decent people should show respect to the innocent Americans who have been displaced and are in mourning right now.

Quit trying to use this tragedy to score political points.

Don't have to be a Christian to be good! A good person is always able and ready to help people in needs at any time, any place, any where no matter of races and religion!!

God doesn't exist to serve us, Mr. Atheist.

We have ALL broken God's laws and deserve His wrath. The 9th commandment tells us not to lie (for just 1 simple example). A study found that people lie an average of 4 times a day. God says lying lips are an abomination. That any of us awakens to a new day is pure mercy on God's part.

To all disbelievers. You are given the opportunity time after time to learn about a loving God. We who do believe know in our heart and soul that God loves us. We are also convinced that we live in a world that has trials and tribulations. God does NOT create evil things (storms) or evil doers. We are all created the same. God created us to choose Him over evil. If you would simply ask God if He loves you - you would see. Never has there been a day of complete peace around the world. The God that I know is the comforter, the One you can trust in time of need, and the God who answers prayers.

may the deserters happen to light the way to the true faith of God because when deserter happens the one's who come to the aid the most are those who follow a Sheppard's call and through their acts light the way to God.

The water will recede, the mud will dry, homes will be rebuilt. Two things will not be forgotten: the misery the storm has brought with it, and the care, comfort and assistance people will bring them as well. Atheists always ask "why?" when things go bad to justify their non-belief. Instead of justifying your absence of faith in God; how about justifying your faith in people by just asking "what can I do to help". The rest will take care of itself.

The reason God does what He does is an enigma to those who do not know him. First, no one knows the mind of God. Our thoughts are not His thoughs, therefore, none of us humans know the why. Second, God is our sovereign Creator, He does what He does as he please. That is the reason He sent His one and only Son Jesus Christ Jesus, so that anyone who believes in him will not die but live for ever. Disasters are a reminder of the eminent coming judgemen.

Sad that everyone attributes to God what the devil has done. Such as Jesus said in John 10:10, it is the thief that steals, kills and destroys and God is not a thief. Sadly, Christians still have not realized their spiritual authority over the devil and many haven't been taught or understand that they could have stood together and commanded the storm to dissipate just as Jesus did. He said the things that He did we would be able to do. Through the grace of God I have commanded tornadoes that were rotating to the ground to stop their rotation and disappear and seen it happen. THAT is God at work. I am thankful for all the people who have stood up and helped in any way they could to make sure that others were rescued or safe.

It's not god that does this it's the atheist that lets the devil in the Lord said he'd never distroy us again that he'd let us do it to our self and that's what the atheist is doing letting the devil in

God says it will rain on the Just and the Unjust. God is AWESOME in ALL of HIS ways! I pray this 'so called' Atheist gives his life to Jesus Christ before it's too late. It's so sad to see people like this. People in Houston are helping each other out of the God given kindness of their heart. THAT'S where God is! People in Houston are helping the displaced innocent Animals...That's where God is! People are helping the helpless..That's where God is! God is AWESOME and is NOT to be mocked! May God bless EVERYBODY that is effected by this horrific storm and all of the people that are helping them.

In John 16: 33 it says "I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace - In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world. No matter what is happening God is always in control.He will use this flood for the better.

Non-Christians will never understand how God works because they are blind to the truth. If you find Jesus in your heart and ask for forgiveness and to guide you then that's when you will begin to see the light.
Rambul September 1, 2017

I think Onision´s question is legit: Either God did this or he didn´t. In either case there is a big "WHY" in there. Insults are not explanations, neither is the old copeout "God works in mysterious ways". This is the XXI Century folks.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
