Obama rips Trump, GOP in fiery speeches for Midwest Dems
Former President Barack Obama criticized President Donald Trumpâs tenure in office Friday in fiery speeches in Milwaukee and Detroit that took aim at him and other Republicans for âmaking stuff up.â
âWhat we have not seen before in our public life is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly, lying. Just making stuff up,â Obama said. âCalling up, down. Calling black, white. Thatâs what your governor is doing with these ads, just making stuff up,â he said, referring to Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his assertions that he wants to protect health care for those with pre-existing conditions. Walker is being challenged by Democrat Tony Evers....
Some of you should realize that your partners in crime the Catholics, which includes the conservatives, won't continue to ignore Universal Health Care. No more than the Romish Church has ignored capital punishment. They may have to unite with liberals for a while to get what they want but it's been shown they certainly can do it
Mark Shea wrote: Another argument: âBut the government canât do anything right! Private initiative can always handle it better.â
This is untrue. Pope Pius XI said, âIf ... private resources do not suffice ... it is the duty of the public authority to supply for the insufficient forces of individual effort.â It was not private citizens who stormed Normandy, built the interstate system, created the internet or defeated polio, smallpox and Ebola. And as the rest of the civilized world beyond the U.S. demonstrates, the state can reasonably manage a universal health care system.
Health care is a right, and it is the Christian duty of the state to ensure that right to all.

QC, I have no problem agreeing with the Romish Church when it is correct. often it is not, but when it is, I have no problems pointing it out like the above article!
Which Jesus should we follow, Jim? Jimmy Carter's who would never condemn sin? Or the real Jesus of the Bible who called sinners to Himself?
However, America as a whole has pursued hedonism with some of the faith following suit. Likewise, there are many who falsely believe that government is the solution to every problem. This was not always the case. At one time, the poor and the sick were under the care of various churches and church ministeries, including hospitals. Doing so was following what the Lord teaches us through both the OT and NT.
Apparently you have failed to distinguish between âcivilizedâ and merely citified, Jim. Civilized people donât condone the brutal murder of innocent babies as you do. âAn hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.â
Jim, you remind me of the free-range chickens we had when I was a boy. We constantly found them under the outhouse pecking at maggots. I found that so disgusting that for years I wouldnât eat chicken. I find you equally sickening.
Why, Timothy, how about give me a URL for this diatribe against Mr. Gerson, what is a regular columnist for the Washington Post
Of course I do wonder since he gave a personal recommendation for Brett Kavanaugh, perhaps your comments have some validity after all?
But, anyway, Timothy, your first comment as seen to be invalid when a person reads the article I put up a URL,that I put up in the first place!
Michael Gerson wrote: ...modern evangelicalism has an important intellectual piece missing. It lacks a model or ideal of political engagementâan organizing theory of social action. Over the same century from Blanchard to Falwell, Catholics developed a coherent, comprehensive tradition of social and political reflection. Catholic social thought includes a commitment to solidarity, whereby justice in a society is measured by the treatment of its weakest and most vulnerable members. And it incorporates the principle of subsidiarityâthe idea that human needs are best met by small and local institutions (though higher-order institutions have a moral responsibility to intervene when local ones fail)....

âIn an article by Matthew Scully (one of Gerson's co-speechwriters) published in The Atlantic (September 2007) Gerson is criticized for seeking the limelight, taking the credit for other people's work and for creating a false image of himself.â âWikipedia A false image. Like the one liberals try to create every minute of every day. Go home, Jim. Your mamaâs calling you.
Michael Gerson wrote: .... The basic, human questions are simple. How could conservative media figures not have felt â felt in their hearts and bones â the God-awful ickiness of it? How did the genes of generosity and simple humanity get turned off? Is this insensibility the risk of prolonged exposure to our radioactive political culture? If so, all of us should stand back a moment and tend to the health of our revulsion....

Now, that's the advice I want to see here!
Frank, as Michael Gerson has pointed out, read the above article the Don is much worse than Hillary would have been.
No, Frank I didnât know that, and now that I do itâs got me all shook up. All this time I thought Elvis wasnât nothing but a hound dog, but I guess that was because I grew up in the ghetto, shivering in the cold Kentucky rain. That kind of childhood is sure to produce suspicious minds.

Did you know that when Elvis Presley was in the military, he used to receive his money and then turn around and give it to the person who was behind him. I remember those pay lines well. I kept mine because I needed every nickel. My pay was something like 70 dollars per month and I if I went drinking I would run out of cigarettes before the end of the month.
Now for Trump. I think it is a nice gesture that he doesn't receive any salary. We agree on that! By the way, Jim will find fault with that as well.

I think it's the latest one but the Don is probably exhausting the people who are trying to keep track of him? https://tinyurl.com/ycuto2nr ( In 601 days, President Trump has made 5,001 false or misleading claims) We know that our president will set a record in one thing anyway compared to all the other presidents. I assume this will make his supporters proud?
Before Jim's links started going to Russian sites (maybe a little collusion there) I remember checking his source I have more than this but will have to go from memory for now One of "lies" that the website cites is Trump calling the Russian collusion story a hoax, which it is So, every time he states that, they count it as a lie. He pointed out the FISA court decision was based on false information, which it was, but the site says because the people named are real people Trump is telling a lie and count it as one every time he is actually stating the truth.
Obama lied countless times to the American people and the can't find but a few???
Jim's sources are the ones who are lying and distorting the truth and he and they slandering the president
Now I recall. Frank, you said that Mr. Trump is an immoral buffoon. Isnât a buffoon a person who operates a buffer? I heard the current president doesnât receive a salary, but is he moonlighting as a janitor?

John I agree with you. He is just keeping himself relevant until the Dems actually take control of all of Congress and POTUS and then approve a resolution to giving the U.N. sweeping powers over all the nations. That is when Nobel Peace Prize winner Barry brings his biracial, bi-religious, gender neutral, and other all things to all peoples qualifications that makes him the first Supreme World Leader.
