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.

‘Russia is delighted’: Maddow says the elephant in the room is ‘rearing up and stomping its feet’

Published

on

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on MSNBC broke down how all of President Donald Trump's decisions in the Ukraine scandal primarily benefited Russia.

"We are in the middle of this impeachment now and it is still unfolding and there is still more to learn and tomorrow is going to be — tomorrow should be a big deal," Maddow noted. "Even just the news tonight is a big deal."

"But even after one day of public hearings so far, the elephant in the room here feels like it’s rearing up and stomping its feet, because who benefits with all these things Trump has done?" Maddow asked. "With all of them. With all this stuff in the middle of the impeachment, but all the other stuff he’s doing simultaneously."

Trump begs Louisiana for a ‘big win’ after his last-minute rally in Kentucky backfired

Published

on

At his last-ditch rally in Louisiana to help the struggling gubernatorial candidacy of GOP businessman Eddie Rispone, President Donald Trump boasted — incorrectly — that his rally in Kentucky narrowed the gap for Gov. Matt Bevin, who lost the race, by 19 points. He then begged voters to give Rispone a "big win."

"We elected everybody," said Trump. "The governor got brought up, in a few short days, 19 points. I went, we made a speech, the whole ticket was there, everybody won big. Governor's a really good guy. But 19 points is a big thing, and he lost by just a few thousand votes. And the headlines next day, Trump took a loss — I lifted him up a lot. But Trump took a loss. So you gotta give me a big win, please, okay? Okay?"

Published

on

Jurors deciding the fate of longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone did not reach a verdict during their deliberations on Thursday and will reconvene on Friday morning.

But there were fascinating details from the courtroom revealed by NBC News correspondent Ken Dilanian.

"What about Roger Stone, does he look like he’s about to burn here?" MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews asked. "Does he look like he’s going down?"

"He does," Dilanian replied.

"And also, physically, he doesn't look well at this trial. He’s walking around the courthouse kind of unaccompanied, shambling around," he continued. "He doesn't look like a happy warrior, which is usually his persona."
