Trump cabinet Bible study leader has a new plan to aggressively expand ‘Christianizing’ of government officials

Published

on

The “Christian nationalist” that leads Bible study groups for President Donald Trump’s cabinet and members of Congress believes the government should only hire Christians — and is poised to expand his reach in the Trump administration and throughout the country.

As reported by Right Wing Watch, Ralph Drollinger’s Capitol Ministries (the group that leads the executive and legislative Bible studies) are holding their first meeting of “Global Directors” at the newly-opened Museum of the Bible, which is owned by the same family that owns Hobby Lobby. According to an update Drollinger posted, “speakers will include several U.S. White House Cabinet Members, Senators and Representatives.” They also seek to “Christianize” state and local government officials.

Drollinger’s beliefs, as reported by RWW and other outlets, tend towards excluding women and non-Christians. He thinks women shouldn’t be allowed to teach men about the Bible, that Christians in power should only hire fellow Christians and that God only listens to followers of Christ.

Another of Drollinger’s controversial beliefs centers on the different “unambiguous responsibilities” of men and women. Under his theory, women should be homemakers and mothers and should dress “modestly.” Men, on the other hand, have “primary functions” that include leading at church and home, providing for their families and “sacrificing for and sanctifying his wife.”

“When America in any way denigrates God’s ordained Institution of husband and wife Marriage,” Drollinger wrote, “our nation loses one of God’s primary means of heralding His nature to our country!”

In a report from September, Capitol Ministries listed former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as “sponsors” of their Bible studies.

2020 Election

Your election angst is real: Trump’s gonna cheat and it could be total hell

Published

on

During the presidential campaign of 1988, "Saturday Night Live's" Dana Carvey played then-Vice President George H.W. Bush as a lovable oddball and Jon Lovitz portrayed Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis as an emotionally detached technocrat, musing out loud during a debate, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy."

Even though it was a comedy sketch, that line has been thrown in Democrats' faces ever since as an example of their arrogant elitism and failure to understand Real America. Don't you know that the average voter wants a president they can have a beer with, not some egghead know-it-all?

Trump preparing to question legitimacy of results if he loses 2020 election: Michigan lieutenant governor

Published

on

Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, D-Mich., has accused President Donald Trump of sowing doubt about November's election months before voting even begins in an attempt to question the "legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose."

Gilchrist criticized Trump for pushing debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail after the state sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think that the president wants to set us up so that there can be a conversation about the legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose," Gilchrist told MSNBC over the weekend. "That is a really unfortunate thing. That's not how we do democracy here in the United States, and we need to be ready to respond to that forcefully."

Trump economic task force member once called minimum wage law the ‘Black Teenage Unemployment Act’

Published

on

Art Laffer, a member of President Donald Trump's coronavirus economic task force who last year was honored with a Presidential Medal of Freedom, once referred to the federal minimum wage law as the "Black Teenage Unemployment Act" on Fox News while he attempted to claim that it made "no sense whatsoever."

"The minimum wage makes no sense whatsoever to me," Laffer told host Jenna Lee on the since-canceled Fox News show "Happening Now." "Honestly, it's just the teenage — 'Black Teenage Unemployment Act.' And this is the very group that we need to have jobs — not be put out of work because of a minimum wage. So, I'm very much in favor of, at least for teenagers, getting rid of the minimum wage."
