President Trump has a lot of support, and from people of all walks of life no less. Which is why it should not shock you when African American and Hispanic leaders recently came out in his defense to discuss what the president was doing on behalf of their people. At a recent roundtable to discuss policy issues related to spirituality and religion that had the opportunity to express exactly how they feel about the president.
The Daily Caller reported,
“This week, President Trump hosted urban pastors at the White House for a roundtable on religion. No networks covered the event, but the White House posted footage of the remarks on youtube afterward. Trump opened up the meeting by saying “Throughout our history, America’s churches and religious leaders have called for change and have inspired us to care for and bring hope back to those in need.” Trump then opened the floor to the mostly black or Hispanic pastors. The pastors praised Trump as a “friend” who has “empowered” Christians in the White House.
Pastor Darrell Scott, longtime member of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump, called Trump “the most pro-black President that we’ve had in our lifetime.” Scott said, “This President actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community. The last president didn’t feel like he had to. He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass. This president is — this administration is probably going to be more proactive regarding urban revitalization and prison reform than any president in your lifetime.” Dr. Alveda King, Martin Luther King’s niece, said she was honored to “pray right here in the White House.” King told Trump, “You’ve done so many things that were great… this administration will continue to make history. It’s going to be a lot of positive changes. Great things are on the horizon, I promise.”
The State reported,
“President Donald Trump met with religious leaders at the White House Wednesday. Those who sat, spoke and prayed with the president were black pastors from across the U.S., which the White House called Trump’s “Meeting with Inner City Pastors.” Among those who had an audience with the president was a pastor from South Carolina — John Gray, the head of Relentless Church in Greenville.
Gray previously was a pastor at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Texas. He also is the star of a reality TV show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network which wspa.com reports will resume s******g in Greenville. The megachurch pastor sat in the seat next to Trump, to his right, in the Cabinet Room. After a few opening statements and greetings from the president, he asked Gray to start the conversation with a prayer. “God, we thank you for an opportunity to speak about the hearts of those who sometimes cannot fight for themselves. Thank you for this moment to be able to share our hearts with the president and his administration,” Gray said, according to White House transcripts. “Dr. King said we cannot influence a table that we are not seated at. And so we pray that this conversation will be fruitful, and productive, and honoring of the best traditions of this nation.
“We further pray that you will continue to give wisdom and insight to our President and his leadership team to be what our nation needs, to build this country from the inside out, that we will continue to be a beacon of hope and light around this world.” Trump seemed to enjoy the prayer, and Gray’s delivery. Before beginning the conversation with the rest of the guests in the Cabinet Room, the president thanked Gray, and White House transcripts show he joked, “I think he’s done that before. What do you think?” Among the issues discussed between Trump and the religious leaders was the re-opening of steel mills, prison reform and opportunities for ex-convicts, urban issues, job growth for minorities the president’s leadership and, of course, faith.
As the conversation made its way around the table, the last person to speak was the man who delivered the opening prayer — Gray. And when given the opportunity to lead the discussion Gray wasted no time. “I am grateful for the opportunity to be at this table at a time in our country where faith is becoming a bit of a dinosaur. In a time of moral relativism and secular humanism, it is refreshing to know that those of us who have committed our lives to fighting for people who cannot fight for themselves have a seat at the table to share our hearts,” Gray said, per White House transcripts. Among those who Gray said he was fighting for are people battling issues many of them were born battling — poverty and mental illness. He also said he was fighting for those who are in need of another chance, specifically former prisoners.”
The focus of the conversation at the White House was regarding prison reform. Many prison reform advocacy groups focus their efforts on sentencing changes. However, when it comes to this issue the White House has instead chosen to focus on workforce training, rehabilitation programs, as well as re-entry. Now African American advocates are trying to work with the Trump administration to adjust their priorities, however, it is not without backlash. After they met with the president they started receiving backlash on social media. Moody, one of the primary pastors at the event, who works with The Worship Center Christian Church in Birmingham, Alabama fought back against the criticism saying that it is symbolic of the vitriol and contempt that is president regarding President Trump’s performance.

Man Found Contracts Showing Obama Was Paying Trump Spy – Obama Tried To Shut Him Up By Stripping Security Clearance
Obama-appointed officials cleaned house
A man named Adam Lovinger lost his security clearances after complaining about the questionable government contract that was awarded to Stefan Halper, who is being touted as an FBI informant whose job was to keep an eye on President Trump’s campaign. Who stripped the clearances, you might ask? It’s being reported that it was Obama-appointed officials who cleaned house and ripped Lovinger’s clearances away, presenting to us quite a concern that involves contracts and clashing forces within the government who either supported Obama then or support Trump now. Either way, it’s a mess.
Lovinger was reportedly complaining about Halper’s contracts back in 2016. He then lost his clearances on May 1, 2017. Lovinger’s lawyer, Sean M. Bigley, then complained to the Pentagon’s senior ethics official, mad that Lovinger’s “higher ups” were basically punishing him with the whole security clearance thing – punishing him for complaining about the deals that were given to Mr. Halper and apparently a “best friend” of Chelsea Clinton, as per the Washington Times.
The Washington Times called this out, as well as numerous other sites who wanted the public to be notified about what was going on behind closed doors. Since John Brennan just lost his security clearances, it was probably just another relative topic to bring up someone else who lost their clearances as well. However the big problem is why they lost their clearances and how it ties back to Obama’s administration, and perhaps even Hillary Clinton on a long stretch. Rather than point fingers at two particular names, it might just be the entire Democratic Party. However it goes, it’s up to the public to absorb the information and make their own decisions.
Anytime these news stories are breaking the headlines, it’s always important to take in all the information and figure out what’s going on. Then share the story with people who would enjoy it. If you’re up for a good bit of government drama, then this is right up your political alley!
Here’s a brief summary that details most of what happened:
“As it turns out, one of the two contractors Mr. Lovinger explicitly warned his ONA superiors about misusing in 2016 was none other than Mr. Halper,” Mr. Bigley wrote in his ethics complaint, which called the contracts “cronyism and corruption.”
Mr. Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint in May with the Defense Department inspector general against James Baker, director of the Office of Net Assessment. The complaint also singles out Washington Headquarters Services, a Pentagon support agency that awarded the Halper contracts totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In an internal October 2016 email to higher-ups, Mr. Lovinger wrote of “the moral hazard associated with the Washington Headquarters Services contracting with Stefan Halper,” the complaint said. It said Mr. Baker hired Mr. Halper to “conduct foreign relations,” a job that should be confined to government officials.
“It was a topic of conversation within the office,” Mr. Bigley told The Times. “What is Halper doing, and why is he being paid astronomically more than others similarly situated?”
The Office of Net Assessment conducts analyses of future threats and ways to defeat them.
“Nobody in the office seemed to know what Halper was doing for his money,” Mr. Bigley said. “Adam said Jim Baker, the director, kept Halper’s contracts very close to the vest. And nobody seemed to have any idea what he was doing at the time. He subcontracted out a good chunk of it to other academics. He would compile them all and then collect the balance as his fee as a middleman. That was very unusual.”
Mr. Bigley told The Times that the inspector general’s criminal investigative division has interviewed Mr. Lovinger about Office of Net Assessment contracting.
In all, Mr. Lovinger has four cases pending: whistleblower reprisal, criminal division, an ethics complaint and an appeal on his security clearance revocation.
A spokesman told The Times that the Pentagon would not comment on the case’s merits.
The spokesman said the Department of Defense Consolidated Adjudicaitons Facility reviewed Mr. Lovinger’s clearance.
It then “issued a statement of reasons stating why, under [federal guidelines] it would not be clearly consistent with the national interest to continue Mr. Lovinger’s security clearance, and he was provided with the opportunity to respond to the security concerns,” the spokesman said. “After considering all available information, the CAF issued an unfavorable clearance determination and Mr. Lovinger’s clearance was revoked.”
Mr. Bigley said the conflict is that the consolidated authority resides within the Washington Headquarters Services, which is the target of Mr. Lovinger’s complaint.
“The CAF’s entire ‘adjudication’ of this case was orchestrated by corrupt officials at WHS, which was demonstrated numerous times throughout the process,” he said.
To conservatives, Mr. Lovinger is a victim of the “deep state” — Obama loyalists out to harm the Trump administration.
Press reports identified Mr. Halper as a paid FBI confidential human source, whose mission was to make contacts with Trump campaign workers. The FBI was investigating any Trump ties to Moscow at a time when its intelligence officers were hacking Democratic Party computers.”
After lodging his complaints about the Office of Net Assessment’s outside research in general and Mr. Halper specifically, Mr. Lovinger sought an assignment to the Trump White House national security staff in January 2017. He was soon confronted with allegations from Mr. Baker that he failed to follow security rules. Mr. Lovinger denies any wrongdoing.
Mr. Baker was appointed chief of the Office of Net Assessment in 2015 by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Mr. Obama’s appointee.
The Washington Headquarters Services, which revoked Mr. Lovinger’s clearance, is headed by Barbara Westgate, who was appointed in 2016.
Perhaps the most intriguing narrative in the Lovinger story is the appearance of Mr. Halper, a national security consultant in the U.S. and Britain who is tied to that country’s MI6 spy agency through his business partner.”
First Trans Dem Nominee Has Jaw-Dropping Message For ‘Radicalized Christians’
I thought the LGBT crowd was supposed to be tolerant?
One of the fresh new faces of the Democratic Party is also the first transgender nominee for governor in Vermont. Her name is Christine Hallquist and she’s got a message for Christians! Based on observations of Hallquist’s previous Tweets, it appears as though she is evidently disgusted by the Christian religion and has utilized Twitter as a means by which to attack those who follow the faith. Hallquist has several Tweets that call out “radicalized Christians” and she even uses the Islamic Sharia Law in comparison.
The website, Daily Caller, had located several of the Tweets in question, each resorting to inflammatory or intolerant attacks on the Christian beliefs.
The first tweet stated “And we worry about sharia law!! Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.” This was in reference to a young girl being too good at soccer and having short hair, so the league thought she was a boy. They made a huge mistake, but Hallquist used this as an example to compare Sharia Law and radicalized Christianity. The young girl may have been targeted because maybe there was a jealous parent on another team, but it’s not directly certain that the decisions regarding the soccer league had anything to do with religion. Many may perceive Sharia Law to be much worse than removing someone or a team from a soccer league.
And we worry about sharia law!! Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it. https://t.co/Q4UmEKAYLi

Hallquist’s next Tweet stated “Some of these Christian evangelist’s are just downright crazy” and she posted a link to the Babylon Bee, which is a well-known satire site. This site posts articles that are clearly fake and made as a joke for entertainment purposes only. Hallquist might have thought the website was real and used it as her method of attacking Christians again.

Another Tweet involved a message from PinkNews who talked about anti-LGBT trolls “sending horrific abuse to a 9-year-old girl” and right away Hallquist targeted Christians once again. She stated “Of course! Probably most of them call themselves Christians.”

Another attack on Christians involved a Tweet by LGBTQ Nation. They posted about a mother who killed her son because he was gay. Christine Hallquist attacked Christians and said “I’ll bet she called herself a “Christian.”
I'll bet she called herself a "Christian" https://t.co/VFJWtQV4W3

Another Tweet found Hallquist targeting Christians once again. This one referred to another Tweet by LGBTQ Nation who reported about a transgender woman be denied food at a soup kitchen. Hallquist then stated, “I am guessing that this so-called Christian hypocrites would’ve not allowed Mary, the mother of Jesus, because she wore a Hijab” and many of the replies to Hallquist were quite indifferent.

The Daily Caller stated this about Hallquist: “Christine Hallquist, the country’s first major party transgender candidate as the newly minted Democratic nominee for the governorship of Vermont, once tweeted an insinuation that “radicalized Christians” are a problem that Americans currently “tolerate.”
“And we worry about sharia law!!” Hallquist tweeted in June 2017 along with a link to an article from “LGBTQ Nation” about a girl disqualified from a soccer team because she looked like a boy. “Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.”
Hallquist’s tweets about Christians didn’t stop there. In January 2018, the Vermont candidate for governor tweeted a link to a Christian satire site jokingly claiming that a Christian evangelist said President Trump “was merely sharing the gospel” with Stormy Daniels along with the caption (and an obvious punctuation error) “Some of these Christian evangelist’s are just downright crazy.”
Several other tweets seemed to show a disdain for conservative Christians, including an assertion that people who allow children to be harassed for being gay probably “call themselves Christians.”
Hallquist won Tuesday’s Democratic primary for the Vermont governor’s race and is set to challenge incumbent GOP Gov. Phil Scott in November.”
It’s very clear to see that Hallquist is using Twitter to display her intolerance for the Christian beliefs. She has taken numerous news articles and referenced them in alignment with Christianity, thus using various news sources as a way to scrutinize the Christian faith.
She is displaying an act of intolerance towards the religion and it appears as though she is encompassing all believers of Christianity in her messages that speak out against the religion.
