Mike Pence shares ‘intimate’ dinner with right-wing pastor who prays for deaths of liberal justices

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife hosted a small gathering of right-wing Christian leaders in their official residence at the Naval Observatory.

The White House released a photo of the event Thursday, which “prayer warrior” Frank Amedia also announced in an email, reported Right Wing Watch.

Amedia said he and other religious right activists enjoyed “a very small and intimate dinner meeting with Vice President Pence and his wife Karen,” where they discussed an evangelical event March 20-22 in Branson, Missouri, hosted by apocalyptic televangelist Jim Bakker.

“I perceive that this timing is critical and strategic as I have been advising that I have received that February is a time of chaos in our nation politically,” Amedia told his followers, “with flash points on the coasts and in the heartland, as well as the caution of the ‘ides of March’ looming which will try to swallow up the spiritual surge of progress and pierce the heart of our political and church reformation.”

Amedia, a volunteer policy liaison for President Donald Trump’s campaign, founded the POTUS Shield network of pastors who believe government should be controlled by conservative Christians.

He told followers that Pence and his wife, who are conservative Christians, “are keenly aware” of the POTUS Shield’s work and asked Amedia to thank his followers on behalf of the vice president and Trump for their “relentless commitment to be a shield and weapon of spiritual force.”

Amedia and his followers believe Trump will help usher in a spiritual revival that will turn America into an explicitly Christian nation, and group members pray for God to “sweep away” Supreme Court justices who don’t share their viewpoint.

Published

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
