Pastor tells Fox News: Obama’s getting us ready to embrace the anti-Christ

Published

on

Fox News gave a platform to a Texas megachurch pastor who predicts that President Barack Obama is paving the way for the anti-Christ.

Fundamentalist Christian pastor Robert Jeffress appeared Monday night on The O’Reilly Factor to discuss his new book, Perfect Ending, which suggests the president’s policies were conditioning Americans to rely on the government and make them vulnerable to the satanic political figure foretold in the Bible.

“What I’m saying in the book, Bill, is there’s going to be a future world dictator before Christ returns who’s going to usurp people’s personal feelings, uh, rights,” Jeffers told host Bill O’Reilly.

Jeffers, pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, said the anti-Christ would wage war against Christians and change religion-based laws.

“He’s going to do it without any opposition, and my question was, how is he going to be able to pull that off?” Jeffers said. “My thesis is, people will have been conditioned long before the anti-Christ comes to accept governmental overreach, and that’s what you’re seeing with President Obama.”

He said the end times were predicted in the Old Testament Book of Daniel and the New Testament Book of Revelations.

“Even Jews look forward to it,” Jeffers told O’Reilly.

The pastor said he’s based his conclusions on the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, which has extended health care coverage to millions of Americans, and the mandate requiring health insurers and employers who offer health insurance to cover some contraception costs.

“President Obama is without apology the most pro-abortion president in history, but what’s even worse, Bill, is we are being conditioned to accept that government has the right to persecute people of faith,” Jeffers said.

He said that Obama had targeted Christians and other religious people for his support for same-sex marriage, which the pastor said was destroying family life.

“Whenever you counterfeit something, you cheapen the value of the real thing, and I believe one reason for the disintegration of the family and marriage is we’re counterfeiting it, and last year the U.S. had the lowest marriage rate in its history,” Jeffers said. “Whenever you say that marriage is whatever you want it to be — two men, two women, a man and a woman – people say, ‘Why bother to get married at all?’”

Despite his lengthy indictment, Jeffers pooh-poohed the notion that Obama could be the satanic figure predicted in scripture.

“I’m not saying President Obama is the anti-Christ — in fact, I’m sure he’s not — because the anti-Christ is going to have higher poll numbers, according to the Bible, at least in the beginning,” Jeffers said. “But I believe he is conditioning people to accept governmental overreach, which they will finally give into when this final dictator comes, whether that’s 10 years from now or 1,000 years from now.”

Trump is ‘having a full-blown mental breakdown’ and needs to resign: Ex-Trump staffer

Published

on

Leading Republican elected officials should work with President Donald Trump's family to negotiate him resigning from office, a former top White House official suggested on MSNBC on Friday.

Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci blasted his former boss during an interview with Chuck Todd on MSNBC's "Meet the Press Daily."

"He has totally and completely lost it. There is nobody that can look at the situation, read the tweets, look at the press sprays, and say he hasn’t lost it," Scaramucci argued.

"What does that mean, lost it?" Todd asked. "Define that."

Trump responds to China raising tariffs — by raising tariffs on over half a trillion dollars in Chinese goods

Published

on

After US markets tanked on Friday, President Donald Trump dramatically escalated his trade war with China.

"For many years China (and many other countries) has been taking advantage of the United States on trade, intellectual property theft, and much more. Our country has been losing hundreds of billions of dollars a year to China, with no end in sight," Trump tweeted.

"Sadly, past Administrations have allowed China to get so far ahead of fair and balanced trade that it has become a great burden to the American taxpayer. As President, I can no longer allow this to happen," he argued.

The New York Stock Exchange closed down over 600 points on Friday as President Donald Trump's trade war with China escalated.

MSNBC anchor John Heilemann said, "we’re hours away for the president taking off to the G7 summit in Bairritz, France, where allies are bracing for the Trump-fueled mayhem that is now 100% certain to ensue, with Trump like a drunken traveler in the departure lounge about to take a trip that he dreads, already sewing global chaos, days-long public meltdown typically moved from words to actions."

"Donald Trump beginning this day with a Twitter tirade that sent the Dow spiraling, closing down more than 600 points today and escalating his trade war with China with these norm-shattering, power-abusing words in this tweet," he said, putting the tweet on-screen.
