faith

New York Times: “One day after assuring Americans he is not running for president “to make things unstable for the country,” the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, said in a television interview Thursday that he might seek to reduce the national debt by persuading creditors to accept something less than full payment.

Asked whether the United States needed to pay its debts in full, or whether he could negotiate a partial repayment, Mr. Trump told the cable network CNBC, “I would borrow, knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal.”

He added, “And if the economy was good, it was good. So, therefore, you can’t lose.”

Such remarks by a major presidential candidate have no modern precedent.”

Opinion: The full Faith and Credit of the United States of America is behind every one of the 19 trillion dollars of the nations debt. Because of full faith and credit, nations lend us money at very low interest rates because there is no risk to the return of their capital.

If that faith and credit is shattered, interest rates would rise exponentially to adjust for risk, while interest payments on new debt would skyrocket. If that were to happen, the economies of China, Japan, Russia and the European Union would implode, and with it the United States dollar.

Other than that, it’s a swell idea.

fox

Breitbart: SANTA MONICA, California — During an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized Wednesday for the vulgar language he has used regarding GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the southern border and invited the likely Republican nominee to Mexico to see the border from the other side.

Earlier this year, Fox said that he would not pay for Trump’s “xxxxxxxx wall,” and called Trump ““Ignorant … crazy … egocentric … nasty … [a] false prophet.” Trump then called on Fox to apologize.

On Wednesday he did.

Opinion: I am trying to like Donald Trump. He describes himself as “really, very conservative,” and the “most conservative person in the world.” But whenever he gets specific on policy, he makes a sharp left turn, e.g., his opinion that the government should provide universal health care, non-gender specific bathrooms or that President Bush lied about Iraq.

I admit that the border wall got my attention, especially the part about Mexico paying for it; and now watching Vincente Fox apologize is a bonus.

And perhaps Trump’s best idea of all was shutting down importing unvetted Muslim refugees until the government could figure out how to avoid importing ISIS operatives.

There are, however, serious problems: I wanted to believe that slapping taxes on Chinese and Mexican goods is the right thing to do, but the research that I did on a possible trade war in yesterday’s post says the opposite.

I wanted to believe that he would deport illegal aliens and only allow law-abiding aliens to come back would work, but deporting what is now undoubtedly 30 million people is not only unlikely, it may cause more problems than it solves.

Then, there is the secret New York Times interview that Mr. Trump refuses to release, where rumor has it, he has no intentions of deporting anyone.

And I am trying to find something I like in his constantly changing policy on what he calls “the deal” between Israel and the Jordanian people (whom the world calls Palestinians) but his knowledge of the conflict is lacking.

Mostly, I am trying to find something, anything, beyond populous political slogans that will get me to vote for him, since the alternative is much worse:

Jesus spoke of a time of trouble just prior to His return that would grow in frequency and intensity, followed by tribulation “such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” Matthew 24:8, 21

So, how could the build up to that be anything but perilous, 2 Timothy 3:1?

The Algemeiner: “You know, they (Palestinians) grow up as young children hating, hating, hating Israel. I think the deal can be made. But we got to be smart and we got to use our best people; gotta use me, but we got to use our best people. And I know the best people.

Now, with that being said, some of the smartest people I know from Israel say ‘We’d love to make the deal.’ — you know, I’ve never met a person from Israel that didn’t want to make the deal. But it is just a very hard deal to make because it’s years of — of whatever. But I’d love to be able to make that deal.”

Opinion: The deal that Mr. Trump would love to make would be another two-state solution. In the years leading up to Israel’s statehood in 1948, the UN did create two states side by side: Israel for Jews and Jordan for Arabs.

But since no remembers or cares about that, another deal will need to be made to fulfill prophecy. The question is by whom?

Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

Daniel 9:27 is all about that deal except Daniel called it a covenant. The many is considered to mean Israel and her neighbors, and one week (Hebrew, shabua) is 7 years.

Therefore, the middle of the week is 3.5 years, and most Bible teachers agree that he, is Antichrist, who will bring an end to sacrifice and offering, meaning:

Animal sacrifice must have previously started. And since sacrifices and offerings can only be done in a temple, the Jews will have received permission to build the prophesied third temple, from he, Antichrist.

The wing of Abominations is a reference to a previous abomination of desolation that took place in 165 BC when Antiochus Epiphanes (mad man) slaughtered a pig in the Holy of Holies, which led to cleansing of the temple, and the feast of Hanukah.

So Mr. Trump may be right, if …

Obama Welcomes Castro Criticism Of The United States

Breitbart: “President Obama welcomed criticism from President Raul Castro on issues in the United State, particularly on race relations and economic inequality. I actually welcome President Castro commenting on some of the areas where he feels we’re falling short because I think we should not be immune or afraid of criticism or discussion as well,”
