Kellyanne Conway’s Feet on Oval Office Couch Kick Off Debate

The left has really gone over the deep end. Now they are complaining about the way Kellyanne sits! Personally, I wish I was still flexible enough to sit that way. If I tied to do so, I would probably pull a muscle. The people who are complaining probably can’t either and are just jealous. But kudos to Kellyanne for taking such good care of herself that she is still so limber.

Trump’s reversal on transgender bathroom directive

 It was very appropriate for President Trump to overturn this Obama directive. The Constitution does not grant the federal government the power to regulate bathrooms. It thus falls under the Tenth Amendment as a power reserved to the states.

Trump may have been unclear, but Sweden experiencing a migrant crime wave

The mainstream media once again in a tizzy about something Trump said, but once again, only Fox News reports the truth on the matter.

Judges: Gay’s Feelings Trump Christian’s Faith

I’ve seen many articles on my Google News page asking something to the effect of, “How could Christians have voted for Trump given how crude and unchristian he is?” Well, the Washington State Supreme Court ruling that Christians must participate in homosexual marriages is the #1 reason this Christian voted for Trump. Activist judges are putting the leftist agenda ahead of the US Constitution. The most telling point in this regard is one of the judges writing, “the state’s nondiscrimination law takes precedent over religious belief, even if it ‘substantially burdens’ constitutional, religious, free-exercise rights.” 

In no way should a state law override the US Constitution. In fact, the standard by which a state law should be judged is the US Constitution. If the law contradicts the Constitution, it should be struck down. But this court did the exact opposite—it voided the Constitutional protection of religious freedom by way of the state law.

This decision will now be appealed to the US Supreme Court. If Hillary had won, she would have appointed a liberal judge to the Supreme Court, and the Court would have ruled 5-4 to uphold this horrid decision. If that happened, then every Christian whose business is in any way related to weddings would be put in the untenable position of having to decide between being faithful to their Christian faith or shutting down their business.

But thank God Hillary did not win! Instead Trump did, and he nominated the conservative Neil Gorsuch to the bench. Gorsuch most certainly will be confirmed before this case reaches the US Supreme Court. And when it does, this ruling will most certainly be overturned 5-4. And that will enable thousands of Christians across the country to be able to be faithful to their Christian faith and to keep their businesses by not being forced to participate in homosexual marriages.
