President Donald Trump may want to tighten requirements on who can immigrate to the United States, but Rev. Jesse Jackson thinks he should instead worry about his own citizenship in heaven.

“Trump says you must be able to speak the language of English, [be] qualified, and have a job skill,” Jackson said Monday. “Jesus would not qualify to come in Trump’s country—he would not qualify to get into Jesus’ kingdom.”

Jackson made the comment Monday at the “Ministers March for Justice,” which was spearheaded by Rev. Al Sharpton and featured ministers from various traditions united in opposing the Trump administration. The event took place on the 54th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, and Jackson did not shy away from using religious language to judge the president.

After judging Trump’s ability to enter heaven, he quoted part of a passage from the Gospel of Matthew, in which Jesus says what he will tell his followers at the Final Judgment.

“I was hungry, you fed me; naked, you clothed me; captive, you set me free,” Jackson said, quoting Christ.

In the passage, Jesus explains his words mean that his true followers will help those in need and ultimately survive judgment. Jesus’ words declare that feeding and clothing “the least of these my brothers” constitutes feeding Christ himself.

Jackson was referring to the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, which uses a points system to decide who may enter the country. English proficiency and work qualifications are some of the criteria on which potential immigrants would be judged.

When Sharpton described the purpose of the march, he put politics into moral terms as well.

“It’s immoral to try to take the vote from people that blacks and Jews and other people suffered and died for,” Sharpton said. “It’s immoral to try and take health care from your mama because you don’t like Obama. It’s immoral to try and give a tax cut to the rich while we need infrastructure and jobs.”

Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner also used biblical allusions to criticize Trump. Pesner referred to the Exodus from Egpyt to compare Trump to the pharaoh who kept the Hebrews in bondage.

“And we know today that we do have the power to break the bondage of the modern pharaoh,” Pesner said.

TAKE THE REVEREND OFF YOUR NAME JESSE...BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT THE ONE GOD IS LOOKING TO DO ANYTHING WITH BUT USE SCRIPTURES TO CORRECT YOU AND PUT YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH AND SERVING HIS TEAM AND NOT THE DEVIL'S TEAM. YOU KNOW THERE ARE ONLY TWO TEAMS AND YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE WRONG ONE.

Who appointed you ICE agent for heaven? So, if some do not have the same values and beliefs as those in the kingdom, Jesus would secure the borders to keep them out? Jesse, are you saying that the Kingdom of Jesus will have walls? Jesus must be a racist. Hypocrite!

Interesting that Jesse Jackson has no appreciation for Trumps years of support. In 1999, Trump was acknowledged by Jesse Jackson for his support of the Rainbow Coalition which included providing a Wall Street office when the coalition began the Wall Street Push. He was thanked for his lifetime of helping the African American Community. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_K1-nzxzzug

Interesting...Mr. Jackson appears to believe he is the gatekeeper for heaven. How gracious of him to try to label others as worthy or not. The Lord surely needs his help to sort things out! As long as people insist on describing a person's worth by using the color of their skin as the litmus test, there is racism. Perhaps, in this instance, the appropriate verse would be "first remove the beam in your eye, then remove the splinter in your neighbor's eye".

I'd like to remind Mr. Jackson of "the most important" message in the bible to strike his false claim that Jesus would not allow President Trump admittance to heaven. Our bible under John 1:12 states, "But to all who believed him and accepted him, to them He gave the right to eternal life..." With Jackson's opinion of Trumps admittance to heaven crushed by the God's promise to mankind (explained above), let's move onto the facts of Trumps Adminsitration. Trump targets policies that create employment. He's sending home illegal immigrants from Mexico who are taking American jobs. Trump's stopped thetransportation of ISIS's oil through Arab counrties. He's cut wastefiul expenditure so it can be spent on the poor and he's doing it. I respectfully ask Mr. Jackson to abandon preaching, for he surely is, a false teacher of the Christian faith.

Jessie Jackson is a filthy dirt bag, a crook, a thief, is dishonest beyond any sane soul's imagination. When it comes to rewarding gut-wrenchingly pathetic human behavior, it is the Devil who gets the call for that task, so says the Bible, the book Jesus Himself helped write and absurdly played a major role in all the Text. Jackson even making such a lunatic statement simply illuminate what a pathetic Moron he is. Why on earth does any person remotely involved in the Press give the has-been loser the time of day?

How insane is this story? The two biggest racist in our lifetime calling President Trump a racist. If there is a heaven, President Trump would be aloud in long before you two idiots. Our President is trying to help the black community, while jackson and sharpton have been raping the black community for decades. The only way you two will get into heaven is if Jesus was racist. What's the odds of that?

Yes, but Jesus did not say we must be invaded and bankrupted by another country, taking scripture out of context is deceitful to say the least. And Jesus did not say to let another ideology opposed the Christianity like Isalm to take us over and be ultimately murdered by them either.

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.”

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.”
