I request your feed-back on these issues

by: James I. Mizzles

Greetings: President Trump
Today is but one step from tomorrow: We only have a slight hint as to what it holds, what we do know is what we have to face today; more precisely, this second, and we know what yesterday held. When we put those two together we have the makings for building a better, or worse tomorrow. It all depends on how we use that knowledge: There were times in our past that we applied wisdom, and of course, times of foolishness. The question is, what are we going to do today? Now! Life is a clump of wise and foolish decisions, accomplishments and failures, but can we afford to sit back and watch some of the greatest mistakes in the history of mankind being devised before our very eyes? Can we? I certainly hope not! We have to have the backbone and grit to stand up and fight against every evil that Satan may devise against our Country, our people and especially against our children. Fight against everything that stands against what our forefathers fought for. Worse than that. Our Government was, at one time, a country after God's own heart. One that strove to truly live as "One Nation Under God," but that is not the case today. By all appearances our nation is striving (in general), to go against the basic structure of what the BIBLE stands for, pursuing the things and standards of the devil himself. You may ask how I can say those things? I will be glad to tell you: First; When does life start, .... when does a fetus become a human being? When does true life actually begin?
thought: If a man were to plow his field and plant corn in that field and another person was to come along and kerosene over that crop, killing the seed, even thought not one seed has germinated the perpetrator would be charged with killing the first mans crop. I remember back in 1968 my aunt Leonora hit a cow on an old farm road, her insurance company paid the rancher, not only for the cow but for each calf (2 to 4)that she could be expected to have.
Why do we put more emphasis on crops and livestock than we do on our own children: Just as when a seed of corn starts to grow in the ground that plant is just as much a corn plant as it will be once it reaches maturity at harvest time, that is no less true with a child; conception is the instant that a man's seed fertilizes a woman's egg, that is when life begins, from that moment on what was an egg is now a living, breathing (through the mother)separate human being and given enough time will be a living breathing adult. Yes, a fetus is just as much a human as you and I are right now: Just think inside of an acorn is a mighty oak, just as inside of a woman's egg is another human, just as not every acorn produces an oak, not every egg in a woman produces a child, but once her egg has been fertilized you can be sure that without any unforeseen circumstances a child will be born.

1. ABORTION: Giving men and women the right (rite) to murder (take and innocent life) their own children by the millions, just because These children have yet to leave their mother's womb, fulfilling their birthing process and because PEOPLE WANT THE RIGHT TO SIMPLY HAVE SEX, as they will, WITHOUT CONCERN FOR THE LIFE THAT THEY MAY BRING IN TO THIS WORLD. People scream about the wanton wide spread murder through-out the streets of our great cities, how The FBI's “crime clock” indicates that a violent crime occurs every quarter of a second ...... how about the fact that approximately 125,000 abortions are performed every day in the USA by some doctors, that have taken an oath to preserve life, whom, will for the LOVE OF MONEY, (GREED), set that oath aside to butcher a child. DOCTORS WHO MURDER HELPLESS BABIES, simply because of greed and HEARTLESS PARENTS who desire selfish pleasures having no regard for the life that they may bring into this world ..... Yes, I, too, was shocked when I heard that Our Great Country had declared it legal to murder our children, helpless little BABIES, more shocking than that was how little it angered the, so-called, "Christian Community." Where are the true Christians that stand up for God and all that He stands for and stand against all that He stands against.

Some incidents some time back planted a question in my mind,.... the cry that rose up concerning the Branch Davidian fire and 911, yet many of the same people sit by and do little to nothing concerning the MURDER OF OUR LITTLE BABIES: How absurd! We cry-out in anger when children are injured, or even worse, killed in an accident, but sit silently by while MILLIONS OF OUR BABIES ARE MURDERED!

What about the cry that went up because of the Oklahoma City Bombing? and Most of those same people see no wrong in the SLAUGHTER OF THE UNBORN CHILDREN. ALTHOUGH In each account the victims had tasted life, and a few had even survived, but our poor helpless babies have no place to run, their silent cry has no ears to hear, they have no chance for survival, once the selfless mother chooses to abort it those MILLIONS OF BABIES have no recourse of any kind, except to CRY OUT IN SILENT PAIN as, in many cases, they are BUTCHERED BY THE VERY HANDS THAT HAD VOWED TO PRESERVE LIFE! Why do I not hear more screaming about the murder of these little children who's only fault was that of being conceived in the womb of a heartless mother. We still talk about the atrocities of Hitler and the GENOCIDE by the Bosnian Surbs. How about focusing on the GENOCIDE OF OUR FUTURE, our children?

2. HOMOSEXUALITY: We also know that America has designated Homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle? Our children are told that they actually have the option to choose to be of the opposite sex.

The first thing that I want to cover is the purpose of sex (copulation or intercourse), when a man has intercourse with a woman there is a reasonable chance that a child will be conceived, but when a man has intercourse with another man, or a woman with another woman the chance of conception is zero. The purpose of intercourse is procreation, to produce children, true God did want us to enjoy sex, but that enjoyment was not intended to be the full purpose of the act. God tells us in 1st Corinthians 6:9, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: Neither Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (in some translations the last two are combined as "Homosexuals"). No! God does not support Homosexuality, He tells us in Leviticus 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: It is an abomination. Further more, in Leviticus 20:13 it states; "If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: THEY SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH; their blood shall be upon them. "Do I have to say more? GOD HATES THE GAY MOVEMENT, and we as Christians have to take the same stand. No, we are not to go out and slay every known homosexual, nor are we to support them; if we support their movement we stand against God! I would prefer to stand against all the armies of the world than to stand against God: Everyone that supports the Gay movement stands against God; this cannot be over emphasized. I do not care how religious you claim to be, nor does it matter how many (so-called) churches back the Gay and Lesbian movement. All true Christians must fight this PERVERSION through education, association and counseling. If you are not a part of the answer, you are a part of the problem, you cannot straddle the fence, if you do not stand against the Gay movement you are supporting it!!

3. DIVORCE & REMARRIAGE: Matthew 5:31-32 informs us that "It has been said, whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement, but I say unto you, that who so ever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery, and who so ever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery."
In America and most parts of our world we have come to accept fornication (pre-marital sex) simply as a part of growing up and adultery as just one of those things that happen. God informs us, in 1st Corinthians 6:9, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: Neither Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers. , nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionist, shall inherit the kingdom of God,” yet we allow it to happen as a simple way of life, we even entertain ourselves and our children with it as we put it in our movies books and magazines making it appear to be acceptable. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; God wants us to respect our bodies and His laws.

4. Let us take a look at our LEGAL SYSTEM: Talk about pampering criminals, we have lost nearly all of the deterrent effect we can, without abolishing the legal system entirely.
Many of our, so-called, prisons are no more than highly restricted social clubs, set aside for those that have proven themselves to be such bad people that we have to "PUNISH THEM?" by furnishing them with food, clothing, shelter and full medical care, saying, "We have taken away their freedom as a punishment;" Let us take a look at it: First a little word picture: In America we have millions of under employed and unemployed citizens, many of which do not even have the benefit of a roof to shield them from the elements, most of whom are underfed, and only a few of which have any form of medical coverage, yet our government does little, if anything to help those people. Unlike "Robin Hood," who took from the rich in order to help the poor. Our government TAKES FROM THE POOR TO HELP CRIMINALS. What I see is a government spending billions of dollars to support the criminal (deviate) element of our society almost ignoring the poor and depraved. I see the criminals of our great land, sitting in their state funded home, eating three meals a day, while many, poor, law abiding, citizens are starving on the street; then we see the same criminals receiving full medical coverage, at no cost to them (in many cases), while hundreds of thousands of poor citizens make do with inadequate, inefficient medical care, if any at all. Is this the way it should be? Why is it that an individual can rob, rape, kill or brutalize our fellow citizens, and if injured they and the person THEY INJURED go to the hospital where the criminal receives all the care that they need, the victim is like-wise treated: We the people pickup the tab for the criminal, but the victim is released with great big bills; even if they have insurance, they generally, end up paying around 20%of the bill, but the criminal pays nothing, I ask you .... is that fair? They were victimized, why should they have to pay the bill too. Where is their Justice? Is it fair to treat criminals so well, while innocent citizens suffer? Oh but we have to be sure that the "RIGHTS?" of criminals are protected: (Personally, I am of the opinion that criminals forfeit their rights when they decide to over-look the rights of others): Who is it that suffers when criminals are afforded those specific rights? All of the victims, their families, relatives, friends, associates and any one else that comes in to contact with them at the wrong time, (in or out of jail). How many times have you heard of someone that was released repeating their offense? How many of them were already multiple offenders? .... Is it right for us to have to continue to pay for their every need, after they have been found guilty of an offense against us that is worthy of death? No! It is not right, but ... THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE DOING!
OPINION … We should take the valuables and money confiscated from criminals, pool it together and use it to help the victims of crimes.

5. What does the Bible have to say about MURDER? Genesis 9:6 says "Who-so shedeth man's blood, (murders another person) by man (the legal system) shall his blood be shed: For in the image of God made He man. "Thus saying that the PUNISHMENT FOR MURDER IS DEATH. Numbers 35:30 says that "Who-so killeth (sheds the innocent blood of) any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses; but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die, moreover you shall take no satisfaction (pleasure) in the life (execution) of a murderer, but he shall SURELY be put to death.
VIEWPOINT: I fail to see where attempted murder is any less deserving of the death penalty than that of murder: Why should we reward an individual for failure, after-all it was not their intention to fail, their heart cried out for success: Intent is the key.

6. What does the Bible have to say about RAPE? Deuteronomy 22:25,26, God tells us: "But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field and the man force her, and lie with her: Then the man only, that lay with her shall die .... but to the damsel, Thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin, worthy of death .... for he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried out, and there was none to save her.

7. What does the Bible say about SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE? Deuteronomy 22:28,29; says that "if a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is NOT BETROTHED, and lie with her, and they be found; the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he has humbled her, HE MAY NOT PUT HER AWAY (Divorce her) ALL HIS DAYS." This passage spoke directly against forcing a woman into a sexual encounter against her will, or what we know today as rape. This command was meant to protect women and to protect the nation of Israel from committing sinful actions making it clear that rape is sinful in the eyes of God and, under the Law, led to the most extreme punishment possible—death for the rapist.

8.What does the Bible say about Adultery? A common scenario is that of the woman caught in the act of adultery, "John8:48, He brings out that they used this case to tempt Jesus, (to try to trick Him in to a mis-judgment). They asked Jesus what they should do with her, for the law said to stone her. Jesus casually marked on the ground and said "He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone. "Her accusers left. Why? In verse 9 we read "They, being convicted by their own conscience went out one by one ...., "now, let us look at Deuteronomy 22:22, "... and if a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall, BOTH OF THEM DIE, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman. "Now in our little story, from John 8, an ingredient was missing, ... THE OTHER PERSON, if she was caught in the act of adultery, ANOTHER PERSON had to be involved; why were they only punishing the woman? OPINION: They knew that person was missing, and had figured Jesus would not notice it and tell them to do what the law said, to stone her; in Jesus' wisdom, what I believe He was actually telling them was that any one that had no part in this treachery may cast the first stone. What treachery? Where is the other person! Why was he not there to be stoned too? I believe that he was there, he was probably one of them that was going to stone the woman. Thusly, ALL WHO COMMIT ADULTERY SHOULD BE EXECUTED. Jesus knew that it would be wrong to punish the one and let the other go free, thusly Jesus told the woman that seeing that she had no accusers, she was forgiven, to go her way and sin no more.

9. How about KIDNAPING? Deuteronomy 24:7 we learn that .... If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you. Now.... Exodus 21:16 tells us, "And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death." Of course we know that selling someone would be the same as holding someone for ransom, or for any other personal gain, such as prostitution and child pornography.

10.What a bout THEFT? Exodus22:19 tells us that "If a man shall steal an ox, or sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, or four sheep for a sheep. If a thief be found broken up, that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him. If the sun be risen upon him then there shall be blood shed for him; for he should be sold for his theft. If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, donkey, or sheep; he shall restore double. "That is a lot to remember: What it says today is,
"If someone steals something and it cannot be recovered the thief is to make restitution of four to five times the value of that object, but, if the object is recovered they are to restore twice it's value. At this point we are also told that if the thief is killed in the attempt to apprehend them, the person that caused their death is not guilty of murder, that no charges should be filed against them. Now if that thief has been captured, duly subdued and is then killed, (not in self defense), then the killer is guilty of murder, because the thief was of no threat to anyone and was only required to make restitution. Now if they are not able to make restitution they are to be sold into servitude (a bond servant) in order to pay their debt; Exodus 21:2 tells us that he is to work for the one that bought him for a period of six years, they are to be given their freedom on the first day of the seventh year. You may have noticed that up to this point prisons have not even been mentioned. Granted, most cases require MINIMAL JAIL TIME, as they are bound over for a hearing, but prison is rarely required.

11. Let us take a closer look at is the JUDICIAL SYSTEM,
A. All cases should be heard and dealt with, quickly (with-in a week).
B. All judgments should be carried out quickly: if restitution is to be made, it will be done at the end of the hearing, or arrangements will be established. Otherwise the individual will be incarcerated until their services can be sold to pay restitution. If the sentence is death, they should not see another sunrise.
C. All judgments of the court are final, except in the case where new, substantial evidence is found, (whether the individual was found innocent or guilty), only then will the case return to court, (of course that is only if the individual is still among the living). Accidents do happen.
D. If a bond servant (inmate) refused to work; runs away or in some way causes great difficulty to the purchaser (facility of incarceration), that individual may be resold (moved to another unit), or possibly sent back to court to face further charges; if they continue to refuse to cooperate they should be placed on a work farm where they will (probably) spend the next seven years. If they run away from the work farm they should be executed.

The argument against capital punishment, that I keep hearing, is that "God is merciful." That is a true statement, He is also a fair God: Think about the compassion we are supposed to demonstrate to the VICTIMS OF CRIME. In the early part of the Old Testament (Leviticus 4:20) we were advised to take vengeance on them that did them wrong. Not anymore, (Matthew 5:38-39)that is the Judicial System's job. Where as God offers mercy He also has strict standards that we have to adhere to, in many cases the punishment for failure to adhere to them IS DEATH. We need to take a closer look at MERCY: God has always been a MERCIFUL GOD: Look at Exodus 33:19, He will show mercy to whom-ever He chooses. Throughout the Bible we find that He shows mercy to those that show mercy to others. Our government has been, and continues to show mercy to the criminal and leaves the victim to suffer. VICTIMS? I could easily extend that to refer to all taxpayers, they have to foot the bill for the support of all prisoners, as well as their legal fees. What great deed have they done that we should support them for the rest of their lives? Yes! I asked that same question earlier, THINK ABOUT IT! That brings to mind a group of criminals that I have saved especially for this section, the INSANE: Where in the Bible does it say that an individual is not to be held accountable for their actions just because they are insane? Does the fact that they fail to understand their actions lessen the impact of the crime on their Victims, or Society in general? No! AS a matter of fact the damages would tend to be worse because they do not have the capability to understand the harm that they are causing. It seems that we have taken the idea of COMPASSION and distorted it to protect the wrong ones. When doctors encounter cancerous tissues in a patient do they leave it alone just because it did not choose to be cancerous? No! They eliminate it. If we come across a rabid dog should we leave it be? It did not choose to be rabid. Of course not, we have to take its life. When we find cancer in our society we have to eliminate it too. Criminals and deviates are that cancer; a mild cancer can be eliminated or handled without surgery, just as some nonviolent criminals can be handled without executing them. But, everyone has rights! As in FREESPEECH, the freedom to burn our flag is a symbol of speech but of expression! If the freedom of speech goes that far we may as well discard the rest of our laws too. We cannot allow misapplied COMPASSION to destroy our country, as it is doing right now: Many say that we have to recognize the deviate's rights too. WRONG, ONCE AGAIN; THEY HAVE BEEN PROVEN GUILTY OF IGNORING THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS, but I am told we still have to recognize their rights; I believe that when they chose to ignore our rights they forfeited their own. Further-more when they stand up against our own police officers, that are only doing their jobs: How can any one say criminals should retain their rights WHEN THEY FAIL TO HONOR THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS? We have the right to our possessions, especially our own lives. We have the right to feel safe to walk our streets, in the day or night (at this time few places allow that; because of the criminal element).

As time has shown; catering to deviates is not the answer, we have to strike hard and consistently. Sure some will suffer that are innocent, but, look at the multitudes that are suffering now, that are innocent; virtually every law-abiding citizen is hurt by their deviate behavior. Yes, they are cancerous, if not dealt with properly, they will multiply, possibly to a point where they are out of control; we are nearing that point now. Simply put: We cannot expect to have an operative Criminal Justice System if we do not have teeth in that system. Today we are a, nearly, toothless lion that does little more than roar at the crime and injustice in our great country.

Let us take a final look at our PRISON SYSTEM
First, and foremost; they are overcrowded, we are constantly forced to build new ones (which are quickly filled to capacity, and beyond).Why is it that we are working on the assumption; that taking away ones freedom is punishment enough for violating the private community, and federal rights of the public and government? That assumption is definitely wrong! Why is it that prisoners are frequently recaptured on purpose? Because after their release they have found that life in the Prison is easier and more desirable: As pointed out earlier, all of the basic needs of prisoners are met. Furthermore, most have various recreational opportunities. Prison, as it is today, does not deter crime. We need to go back the bible, or at least to the "Dark Ages," if you will, to the old ball and chain. Yes, A new version of the "Chain Gangs of Old," where men feared the very idea of incarceration: That was more of a deterrent! We need to reinstate the "Death Penalty," which should be carried out immediately, not ten or twenty years later; and what happened to the old idea of a swift trial? Some trials linger on for years.

The first thing we need to do is to put "GOD" back into our legal system:

Hello Mr President,

I saw your new presidential coin and just love it. I wish I could afford to purchase one but I’m totally disabled.

Is there anyway you could send me one I would treasure it forever.

Thanks for everything your doing,

Hello Mr. President, I love what you are doing on policies and issues (tax, immigration, terrorism, foreign policy, Obamacare, energy, judicial and cabinet appointments, etc.) - keep it up! I pray for you and our country every day. But may I please advise you, people will respect you more and take you more seriously if you focus on the real issues and not waste your time and energy on twittering against the media (fake news, bad reporters, etc.). People don't pay too much attention to what they say, but more to what you say back. The more you fight back, the more you are stoking the fire. Pray and trust God to help you in your Presidency. May God bless and protect you and your family and give you strength, wisdom, good health and grace. In Christ,

While the lying corrupt media slams you at every turn, your performance has made your supporters very loyal to you.
No president has worked as hard as you have.
You are making past presidents look very lame.
The Islamic Muslim Obummer left you with a real mess.
Congress people are destroying themselves by resisting you.
I consider you the first real president since John F Kennedy.
I have no use for Ronald Reagan when he broke the backs of labor unions.
Labor unions are the reason we have (or had) a middle class, which are the driving force behind the economy.
After adjusting for inflation the middle class has not had a raise in wages for decades.

Thanks for your hard work

I don't know who reads these posts, that is in a position to actually help me. I loved Trump long before he ran for president. I actually went back to college to major in business because of him. No matter what I will be loyal until the end. So, here is my major problem. I recently was involved in a terrible Domestic violence situation, that has left me broken beyond belief and I need to get help for. However, in the state of Arizona to go anywhere that can actually help me to get real help depends only on having private health insurance. I don't have the funds to pay out the crazy prices to get a private health plan, so I could get help for myself. So, Mr. President if there is any way you could personally help me, I would forever be indebted to you. I'm just a New Jersey girl living in an Arizona who needs the help of her president now more than ever!!

A staunch Trump supporter, I am disappointed that Pres. Trump has not used his pen to take the congress off their made-up health care and put them all on Obama Care. I don't think they have any idea of what this health care mess is doing to our middle class.

I have voted in Indiana all my life (70 yrs old now) and NEVER have I seen a candidate so vulnerable as is Joe Donnely. All the President has to do is have one HUGE rally in Ind...just like he did the shrewd thing in the Primary by inviting Bobby Knight) which I fought hard for your people to do.

I would like to let the you know that there are many supporters that have not voiced their support. Most are in rural communities like the one I grew up in. They are not the type of people that grandstand for publicity. Please keep these folks in mind as you serve our great country. I personally would like to thank you for all you have already done and support you to the fullest. Stay strong on your beliefs and true to your destiny because I believe what ever happens it was meant to be. Our lives are guided by strength that man will never understand and you are a guiding light for America.

I am commenting from far away. If I understand this correctly, you have a White Supremacist Group and for the sake of clarification, a Non-White Supremacist Group. The Non-White Supremacists are tearing down the White Supremacists' historic statues and symbols, like the statue of the world-famous General Lee that has been in Charlottesville for over 100 years. The White Supremacists have not destroyed statues of the Non-White Supremacists so far. I understand further that the White Supremacists applied and got a permit to march in protest against the removal of their beloved statue, and the Non-White Supremacists confronted them without a permit from the City to do so with weapons. If my premise is right, then what strikes me most grievously in this are two things:

1. The total lack of democracy in a decision that seems to be so important to people. A couple of city Councillors decided to remove a statue of the people without consulting the people? Why did the mayor of Charlottesville (if the statue was a municipal statue), or whoever had jurisdiction over the statue, not simply have a vote when he saw that this decision would be highly controversial? Then the majority vote would have decided the issue and the minority would simply have had to go along with it. Remember that democracy is defined as the greatest possible good for the greatest possible number of people. The greatest possible good for the fewest possible people is the definition of tyranny.

2. Secondly, WHY did the police allow the illegal Non-White Supremacists march to go ahead with weapons to confront a legal protest? Why could the City of Charlottesville not have granted them a permit to march the day before or after the White Supremacists were allowed to march? From my vantage point far away from America, the blame for the death of the beautiful young girl and all those who were injured lies squarely on the shoulders of the mayor of the city and his Council.

In that sense, I believe your President is quite right---and very brave to say to the people: The Emperor wears no clothes, when those taken in want him to say that the Emperor does wear the most beautiful clothes. Are we, who are dispassionate observers from afar wrong in this? Is there something we overlook? History has catapulted young America, unfortunately perhaps, into the leadership of the Free World. You have elected a President to lead the USA and the Free World. Support him! Do not give in to hatred by tearing down your statues. That is what the Taliban did because monuments left to us thousands of years ago were not Islamic. Honour your ancestors and your history, even if by today's standards they appear to have been wrong. Everything else seems treason to us. God bless you all over there in America!
