News Roundup! Tax Day, Cher, Dem Polling, Fundraising, Notre Dame, Tiger Woods, Economic Train, Mueller Report…..

You know it’s bad for the Left, Democrats, MSM etc. when the NY Times has to report the truth to their readers.

From the article linked above:

If you’re an American taxpayer, you probably got a tax cut last year. And there’s a good chance you don’t believe it.

Ever since President Trump signed the Republican-sponsored tax bill in December 2017, independent analyses have consistently found that a large majority of Americans would owe less because of the law. Preliminary data based on tax filings has shown the same.

To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained — and misleading — effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase.

From the article linked above:

H&R Block (NYSE:HRB) released data through March 31, 2019 showing the overall tax liability for their clients was down an average 24.9% under the first year of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). All 50 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.) saw their average tax liability decrease anywhere from 18.0% to 29.1%.

The biggest takeaway from the data is the gap between the overall reduction in liability and the size of the increase in tax refunds.

The Economic Train continues to smile as she picks up passengers and runs over her enemies.

Our President is absolutely KILLING the Democrats, RINOs, CoC, Koch Brothers, MSM etc. by stating that he is going to have illegals that are required to be released sent to Sanctuary Cities and States across our country.

He is also highlighting former Obama personnel that worked at DHS.

He just had some fun with Cher!

The latest Democrat Polling is out.

Meanwhile look how much our President raised in the 1st Quarter.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is set to report that it raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, edging out his top two Democratic rivals combined, according to figures it provided to The Associated Press.

The haul brings the campaign’s cash on hand to $40.8 million, an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign.

The Trump campaign said nearly 99% of its donations were of $200 or less, with an average donation of $34.26.

Trump’s fundraising ability was matched by the Republican National Committee, which brought in $45.8 million in the first quarter — its best non-election year total. Combined, the pro-Trump effort is reporting $82 million in the bank, with $40.8 million belonging to the campaign alone.

I absolutely love that our President is honoring Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom for all the right reasons.

The Cathedral of Notre Dame is engulfed in flames. Wonder who might of did it?

The Mueller Report will be available for us to see on Thursday.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mueller-report-expected-to-be-released-thursday-morning

From the article linked above:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s much-anticipated Russia report is set to be released to the public and Congress on Thursday morning, the Justice Department announced.

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec told Fox News on Monday the report would be made available — with redactions — Thursday morning to lawmakers and to the public. The news comes despite mounting calls from Democrats to first release the report to Congress without redactions.

The DOJ also noted every page of Mueller’s report was marked to indicate it may contain grand jury material “and therefore could not immediately be released.”

Our President is in MN to talk about his Economic Agenda. You can watch it at the link below.

        “It’s Ramadan, the loveliest time of the year,
        When the air is filled with the joyful sounds,
        Of exploding cars and suicide bombers,
        And the pungent aromas
        of gunpowder and concrete dust,
        The sweet scents of flesh and blood,
        Baking on hot pavement and sand.
        It’s Islam’s way of sharing and caring
        And spreading Ramadan cheer!”

        Ramadan 2019 in United States will begin in the evening of Sunday May 5
        and ends in the evening of Tuesday June 4

        1. Boom, Bang,
          Ramadan-a-Ding-Dong…

          Moslems have been attacking churches, statues, icons, just about any religious objects or symbols that are not “theirs”. They have a particular hate for the Virgin Mary, as is evidenced by their multiple “beheadings” of statues throughout France. I suspect they don’t use their usual knives that they use on humans (infidels, apostates, and enemies, oh, my)…

          The religion of pieces is leaving Europe in pieces.

          Time to send those aniimals back from whence they came. Light up the “cube” and let them see how it feels. Maybe warm up the haj…

          Another thought – could there have been maintenance being done on the Cathedral? It seems that the last decade oro so, there have been MANY roof fires (and then lost buildings) because of poorly qualified maintenance workers (or careless ones) causing fires or other structural damage. Then again, one only has to look at many work crews here in Europe to see the, erm, herkunft (origin) of the workers. Seems they stop five times a day, point south, and bend over. Time to kick ’em.. (Kek ’em?)…

          (Sorry for the rant. I’m sick and tired of the trail of blood, rapes, and terror they’re leaving over here. And the “gubmint” isn’t any help; indeed they’re a major part of the problem)….

        2. Gail,

          The verse you quoted is quite apt at describing the joys of Ramadan, but the line about dates gives the Mohammedans a bit too much credit for religious rhyme and reason.

          Actually, their rules say that if adult male Mohammedan witnesses in each of their communities see the New Moon, or the thin crescent of the moon, post-New, the month will thereby officially end for the particular Mohammedan community in question, and Eid al-Adha start, before the 30th night of Ramadan.

          So the date of 4th June actually represents the worst case scenario. The “month” of Ramadan may last 28, 29, or 30 nights, depending on weather conditions. Clear skies mean the locals witness the New Moon on the 28th night, and we are thereby blessed with a slightly shorter period of mayhem and destruction.

          This also means that Mohammedans in different part of the world will, in unpredictable fashion, be sitting down to feast on the 1st night of ‘Eid on different nights, thereby commencing their 48 consecutive hours of being allowed to stuff themselves night and day. This will follow 28, 29, or 30 consecutive nights of weight gain from stuffing themselves at Iftar feasts and associated pre-dawn breakfasts during the nighttime hours only.

          Jihadis wishing to take advantage of Allah’s two-fer Ramadan special on brownie points to get into jannat (Mo’s version of heaven, described by infidel scholars as being rather like a brothel in the sky,) will presumably be focused on religious training in such activities as knifing, shooting, and bomb-making, all the better to slay infidels, rather than just the eating.

            More (Moor?)over, it has been that way with the Turkish “Gastarbeitern” for as long as they’ve been here. The Greeks, Italians, Spanish, Asians, and other, non-Moslem immigrants have worked to be almost “more German than the Germans” (sometimes humorously so). The Turks (and Iranians, Iraquis, Moroccans, Somalis, Sudanese, und, und, und)? Nope. Even in the fourth generation… ’nuff said…

Of course, no one besides us will dare to suggest that said protected religious group is quite capable of pulling off these attacks because of their hatred of Christianity.

          I won’t be surprised if they eventually try to pin these attacks (including the burning of Notre Dame) on some “white nationalists”. They always do.

It has been determined that not only is the blood type the same on each of them (AB-), but it’s from the same person and the markings match. The provenance on all of them dates far enough back that all but the Grail, which is agate I understand, should have disintegrated by now as they are natural materials. And then there’s the pollen, and the weaves, and other stuff.

            2. At our recent gospel meeting, the guest preacher spent the first 5 minutes exhorting the congregation not to assume he is correct or take his word for anything, but to think for ourselves, to compare everything he would say to what God’s Word says, referencing Acts 17:11.

              And he observed that if you could assume anyone was correct, if you could take anyone’s word in matters of God, certainly it would be the word of Paul the Apostle, chosen by Christ Himself to teach and save the lost.

              But the Bereans did not take Paul’s word for anything. They compared even what Paul said to the Scriptures, to see for themselves whether what Paul taught was true. And that is preserved for our example to do the same.

              It is the surest way to avoid error, and to avoid being misled, either by accident or by design.

          I like engineers. My Dad was an engineer, and so is my sister.

          Which part is the ‘circular argument’?

          I’m here to learn! 😁

          If you mean to suggest that anything written in the pages of the Bible cannot be used as evidence for the truth of the Bible, that position ignores the fact that the 66 individual books, letters and epistles contained within the Bible were not all written down at the same time or by the same person.

          You could correctly say that all 66 are by the same Author (they were each inspired by God), but if you make that argument, then you are conceding that it’s true.

          And if we take them each as individual ancient manuscripts, all testifying to the same truths, reconciling forwards and backwards, then arguments based on those individual testimonies don’t become ‘circular’ simply because you put them all in the same binding, hundreds of years after they were written.

          Suppose you had separate manuscript evidence from Plato, Sophocles, Aristotle, and Euripides, all of whom testified to some historical event or fact. Researchers and historians would give their right arm for that kind of documentary evidence. If I collected them and put all four testimonial accounts in one binder, does that suddenly make it a ‘circular argument’ because I am using accounts from the same ‘bound volume’ to validate a claim?

          Each of the 27 NT and 39 OT books is an independent ancient manuscript.

          The fact that these individual ancient manuscripts have been subsequently collected together into one volume we now call the ‘Bible’ does not make it “circular reasoning” when referencing one to the other any more than it would be circular reasoning to have Aristotle reference Sophocles.

          An argument for circular reasoning would make more sense if you argued that any individual book in the Bible cannot validate itself, but that position does not hold up when the collected individual manuscripts provide evidence for the others.

          At that point, the only way the claim of circular reasoning could be made is because each independent book has been placed into one bound volume. Separate them back out into 39 OT and 27 NT individual books and the circular reasoning argument no longer applies.

          There is more evidence for the authenticity of the NT, and more ancient copies of books of the NT, than any other ancient writings in existence. If one would dismiss the authenticity of the NT (or OT) manuscripts, then by the same reasoning, one must also similarly dismiss the vast majority of our knowledge of the ancient world, because the evidence we have for most of our knowledge is much less (in volume and completeness) than the evidence we have of the books of the Old and New Testaments.

            1. I give up trying to understand your replies on this subject, lol!

              First you allude to a ‘circular argument’ without ever explaining what you’re referring to, so I guessed and addressed what I thought your implied argument was.

              Then you say you’re not getting into a Biblical argument (I wasn’t arguing ABOUT the Bible, I drawing an analogy between the Bible and other ancient texts, and showing that the Bible consists of 66 different independent accounts or testimonies, only some of which were written down by Paul).

              Obviously Paul did not write down each of the epistles attributed to him concurrently, but what that has to do with (or how it is responsive to) my previous post is a mystery, lol!

              Except you can’t defend that claim, you can only assert it dogmatically, which goes to the HEART of the schism between the RCC and every other follower of Christ.

              Roman Catholics can play games on this subject all the way to Judgment Day.

              But on Judgment Day, there will be no obfuscation, no dogma, no red herrings, no logical fallacies, no misdirection, no dodging, no lies, and smoke and mirrors, there will be no fooling or deceiving Christ, there will only be truth.

              So my challenge, always, to every man or woman who adheres to doctrines or beliefs they cannot (or will not) defend, is to take myself or anyone else out of the equation, and make your defense of your belief as if it was Judgment Day, and you are standing before Christ.

              That is the test.

            _________________

            That has always been my understanding, that the reference was to the Old Testament. It is often said that the New Testament is the Old Testament fulfilled.

            In fact, Jesus makes a statement to that effect in this passage, where He reads from Isaiah (i.e., ‘Esaias’):

            “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. [17] And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, [18] The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, [19] To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

            [20] And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. [21] And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” (Luke 4:16-21, KJV)

            Keep in mind, they would have stoned to death any other man who made such a claim.

            .

            There are 3 examples which immediately come to mind (there are many more, but I had to make a quick note of these 3 before I forgot them… I start looking up one, and then I forget the others!) with regard to your question, and checking the Old Testament Scriptures to make sure the thinks Paul taught about Christ were so (i.e., were true).

            Example 1:
            In Acts chapter 8 we learn about the Ethiopian eunuch, the treasurer for the Queen of Ethiopia, who had come to Jerusalem to worship, and who was reading the Old Testament book of Isaiah (a.k.a., Esaias).

            “And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. [27] And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, [28] Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. [29] Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

            [30] And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? [31] And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. [32] The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: [33] In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. [34] And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? [35] Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.” (Acts 8:26-35, boldface emphasis mine)

            The Scripture the Ethiopian was reading is Isaiah chapter 53.

            .

            Example 2:
            And there is the passage which took place after Christ was crucified, and He was risen, and appeared to the two disciples (without revealing who He was) as they walked to Emmaus. Clearly the New Testament had not been written yet, so the reference must necessarily be to the Old Testament:

            “And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. [14] And they talked together of all these things which had happened. [15] And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. [16] But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. [17] And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

            [18] And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? [19] And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: [20] And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. [21] But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. [22] Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; [23] And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. [24] And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

            [25] Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: [26] Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? [27] And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:13-27)

            .

            Example 3:
            Another example is Apollos, a jew who taught Christ at the Jewish Synagogues, and therefore was clearly teaching from the Old Testament:

            “And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus. [25] This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John. [26] And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.

            [27] And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace: [28] For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.” (Act 18:24-28, boldface emphasis mine)

          3. Part 2 of 2:

            Jane: “Was the NT written before Paul was preaching? Kind of confusing. Please clarify for me. Thank you.”

            ________________

            Specific dates are difficult to pin down precisely, but can often be narrowed down to a range of possible dates. There are 66 books (letters, epistles) collected into one volume called the Bible. 39 of those books are the Old Testament, and 27 are the New Testament.

            The Roman Catholic Bible later added extra books, called ‘The Apocrypha’, which are important historical references, but which are not considered to be inspired by God (i.e., not Scripture) by anyone I am aware of besides Roman Catholics, for whom it is a matter of dogma (apparently). If I remember correctly, at least one of the Apocryphal books added by the RCC specifically states that it is not Scripture, but that doesn’t matter to Roman Catholics (apparently). Roman Catholics are second only to Democrats when it comes to attempting to reason anything logicially, because they are indoctrinated to believe the doctrines and commandments of MEN in their church, over and above what God’s Word actually says. This both maddening AND the cause of the large majority of DIVISION among those who identify as Christians.

            In other words, there is God’s way (as revealed in His Word), and there are the doctrines, commandments and traditions of fallible men in the RCC which is NOT found anywhere in God’s Word. Following traditions, doctrines and commandments of Men guarantees division between those who follow God’s Word, and those who wing it, following after fallible men.

            I wish there was a nicer way to say it, but the truth is the truth. If we have a Manual of God (and we do, i.e., God’s Word), and it says ‘A, B, C, and D’, and then someone comes along LATER and adds ‘E, F, G… hijklmnopqrstuvwxyz’ without any Authority from God to do so, they create DIVISION, they MANUFACTURE division, i.e., a situation where any honest observer must choose sides, whether to follow God or men.

            That is the position the RCC puts people in, either choose RCC dogma or choose God’s Word.

            I wonder which Peter and the other Apostles, would counsel and choose?

            …………………………
            “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29)
            ………………………..

            Critics might (and have) accuse me of taking that verse out of context, to which I would (and have) reply, if there is any context wherein that verse is NOT true and applicable, what might that be?

            I have yet to hear a response to that question, only silence.

            There are plenty of Protestants (and others) who have followed after the doctrines, commandments and traditions of men too. Even many of the SAME doctrines, for which the PROTESTANT movement came to be, and yet many Protestant denominations now practice RCC traditions and doctrines of men, against which the Protestant Reformers fought. That is an error which too many have in common with the RCC.

            .

            The books (letters, epistles) of the New Testament were written down beginning after the ascension of Christ (i.e., around 33 A.D.) up to around the mid 90s A.D., when the book of Revelation is thought to have been written down.

            So 27 books / letters / epistles, written across a span of some 60 years or less.

            Paul is credited with writing down (by inspiration of God, dates are estimates from an Interweb article: https://www.gotquestions.org/how-many-books-did-Paul-write.html ) at least 12 epistles, and though it cannot be confirmed with certainty, it appears that Paul is likely the writer of the book of Hebrews as well:

            Letters / epistles written by Paul:
            Galatians (AD 47)
            1 and 2 Thessalonians (AD 49—51)
            1 and 2 Corinthians and Romans (AD 52—56)
            Ephesians, Philemon, Colossians, and Philippians (AD 60—62, during Paul’s first Roman imprisonment)
            1 Timothy and Titus (AD 62)
            2 Timothy (AD 63—64, during Paul’s second Roman imprisonment)

            .

            So the answer to your question is that:

            A) some books of the NT were written before Paul was converted (probably the four Gospels, because Paul is not mentioned until the Book of Acts, but Acts is attributed to the physician Luke, also the writer of the Gospel of Luke, the same Luke who traveled with Paul, see Colossians 4:14 and 2 Timothy 4:11),

            B) some books of the NT were written WHILE Paul was preaching,

            C) some books of the NT were written down BY Paul himself (he was the writer of at least 12 of the 27 books of the New Testament), and

            D) some books were written after Paul had been martyred, estimated to have happened between 64 AD and 68 AD (e.g., Revelation would have been written some 25 years after Paul’s death).

  4. This is absolutely horrible and a devastating tragedy.
    My husband are heading to Paris for Easter weekend and had planned on attending Easter morning Mass at Notre-Dame, so this is a complete shock as to how surreal this is. It was an active living church to me, and I visited it anytime I was near Paris (even hoping out on the train during quick layovers), and attended Mass there before, It is a special place for many, and my Parisian friends are in utter shock right now.

    I will say that once we decided to make plans to attend Mass at Notre Dame, I instantly had a premonition that something was going to occur at ND around this Easter season. I had no proof, just a firm thought, and an instinct to remain vigilant.

    I’ve been fortunate (unfortunate?) to pick up on things like this before – I was in London on the bridge in the same spot, literally 24 hours prior to the attack near Big Ben (I have a photo of me with Big Ben time showing the same time but the day prior and was in the airport when I saw the news showing the attack), I felt spared….and I was planning on being at the finish line for the Boston Marathon when the bombing occurred, as I worked a few blocks down the road and was going to cheer on a colleague, but was delayed chatting in the office when the bombing occurred. Again I felt I was spared.

    Each time I had the same feeling afterwards as I do now, that what had occurred wasn’t natural, something is/was afoot. And as always, my first reaction is to pray for humanity and for God’s continued protection.

    I don’t know what else to say…..

    (other than, and this is a horrible transition, but isn’t it interesting the Boston Marathon incident occurred the same day……Patriots Day. What is it about this date?)

    2. What worries me is that Macaroon will blame the Yellow Vests, or somehow twist the real culpability into something (or someone) else for political gain.

      This is, in a sense, France’s 9-11. It may also prompt a response similar to Bubhie’s “Patriot” Act, which is neither patriotic, nor helpful to the USA.

      It also is a case of “choose now whom ye will serve”. There are many people who don’t give a rip. But unless they do something, and soon, it will be them getting ripped. Joshua 24:15 says:

      And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

      We are being given a choice here, especially considering it is Easter Week (I don’t thnk this is a coincidence).

      The Moslems attack symbols as that is what terrorism is all about. And you can bet there is dancing in the streets in no-go zones, down in the pit of Hell, and probably all over the Middle East, except Israel, who are probably as shocked, sad, and appalled as we are, but not surprised, as they see this kind of animal behaviour every single day.

      These subhuman, single-braincell miscreants only understand one thing: “My stick is bigger than your stick”.
      Well, it’s about time someone sticks it to them.

      How about it, Macaroon? Will your momma/teacher/wife let you out to be a man? Or do you want to see the rest of the cathedrals and churches fall, along with Western Civilization, as instructed by your Satanic Illuminist overlords?

      Remember, a church (building) may fall, but THE CHURCH will NEVER fall.

      But it’s not a ‘decline and surrender’, it is a ‘managed expulsion’.

      The see the phrase “Politics is downstream from culture” (credited to Andrew Breitbart, IIRC), but is that really true, if politics, by design, is manufacturing the culture to its own will?

      More than any other specific individual I can name, George Soros and his money appear to be responsible for the intentional and purposeful destruction of Western culture.

      He works in concert with the islamists and the Marxists all over the world, because they have common cause. He is the financier, the Marxists are the strategists, and Marxists and islamists are the foot soldiers.

      The Leftists absolutely control all mainstream media, from Hollywood to news to entertainment. The Leftists and Globalists absolutely created the ‘islamic migration’ into Europe the same as Leftists and Globalists are creating the south American migration into our country.

      NONE of that is ‘downstream from culture’, it’s TOP DOWN from a handful of obscenely wealthy and powerful Leftists and Globalists.

      Our ‘politics’ isn’t reflecting ‘culture’, our culture is being brutalized and destroyed to reflect the ‘politics’ and will of the 0.000000000000000000000001%.

GOD, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit don’t even enter into the equation.
