Fox News pastor: Christians who follow Trump are spiritually superior to other believers

Published

on

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, a Fox News contributor, said on Sunday that Christian followers of President Donald Trump tend to have “deeper convictions” than other believers.

While appearing on Fox & Friends, Jeffress dismissed a poll that showed a drop in the number of people who call themselves evangelicals.

According to the Texas pastor, Trump has nothing to worry about because evangelicals show up in larger numbers at the ballot box than other religious groups.

“[I]n the poll we’re talking about today,” Jeffress said, “even though the evangelical number has dropped as a whole, the number of evangelicals turning out at the ballot box is greater than other groups, and it’s because evangelicals have deeper convictions. They believe in absolute moral and spiritual truth, and they tend to vote those convictions at the ballot box.”

Jeffress did not explain how or why he came to the conclusion that evangelicals were spiritually superior to other believers.

This fresh take on Watergate provides new insights into the Trump presidency

Published

on

As evidence of illegal activity in the recent presidential election mounts, the attorney general appoints a special prosecutor. The president, after denouncing the news media for false reporting, calls a press conference to insist he has done nothing wrong.  In court hearings, evidence of campaign dirty tricks and secret pay-offs emerges and a growing chorus of Congressional Democrats call for impeachment proceedings.

While these could be scenes from recent CNN coverage, they actually come from 1973-4, the last years of the Nixon presidency.

Washington journalist John Farrell’s book, Richard Nixon, a Life, provides a fascinating narrative that takes the reader inside the mind of a troubled president who is obsessed with taking down his perceived “enemies.”

Mueller’s work is ‘far from over’: Former federal prosecutors with Congress to act on Trump

Published

on

After many months, special counsel Robert Mueller finally concluded his Russia investigation, left behind a lengthy report on his findings and closed his office in Washington, D.C. But former federal prosecutors Barbara McQuade and Joyce Vance, in an in-depth report for NBC News’ website, stress that the work Mueller started is far from over — and it is up to Congress to pick up where Mueller left off.

President Donald Trump has been claiming that Mueller’s report was a total vindication of him and that Mueller ruled out the possibility of obstruction of justice — a claim that Attorney General William Barr has agreed with. However, McQuade and Vance (both of whom are law professors who serve as legal analysts for NBC News and MSNBC) don’t share that view.

Trump’s deportation threat is ‘literally not possible’ — he’s just trying to ‘terrorize families’: MSNBC reporter

Published

on

MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff condemned President Donald Trump's threat to arrest and deport millions of migrants living in the U.S. as impractical, implausible and immoral.

The reporter has been covering the Trump administration's family separation policy since last year, and he's toured the overcrowded detention facilities where children have died after they were taken from their parents at the border, and Soboroff said the president was only making things worse.

"Donald Trump is a human billboard for illegal migration, the way he's talking about this," Soboroff said. "When he came into the office, and the numbers dipped, they called it the Trump effect and people were scared. People aren't scared of Donald Trump anymore, and they are rushing to the country."
