I just realized, the photo on the left is most likely photoshopped. sorry

It's real, saw it on the news when it happened.  Oh wait, maybe it was Fake News!  LOL

 

Just as we were to pray for President Obama and all of our elected leaders, we should continue to pray for President Trump.  Pray that he gets properly discipled and not led astray by those evangelicals.  Pray that he seeks the Kingdom of God first in all that he does.

Jim,

 Is there any updates on the mining ban in the State of California?

Do you think the Trump Administration is making a positive difference?

Alan, here is one that I have been involved with from the beginning. I am a gold miner, as well as a property and mining rights advocate. The state of California has banned suction dredge mining for gold for the last nine years. This is a direct violation of the rights that congress gave to this nations miners. I am working with the new administration's new agency heads to get this situation turned around.

Just today Pacific Legal Foundation agreed to take this case the the US Supreme Court for miners. They are a very high profile legal firm, with many impressive wins to their credit. The link below is their announcement and brief concerning the illegality of the state's actions.

Alan, there is no new news in our cases, but the Trump administration has already taken on the plight of miners in the coal industry. I have petitioned The head of EPA as well as Ryan Zinke, head of the Dept of Agriculture in regard to the illegal actions of the state of California's ban on a federally protected right to mine.

Whether that will go anywhere is yet to be seen, but for now we think our best chance of winning is at the Supreme Court level. We are still waiting to see if they agree to hear the case. Once you get the the Supreme Court level things move even slower than at lower levels.

Jim,

We appreciate the update and added information. It is our hope that eventually the actions of the State of California will be overturned by the Federal government.

It is also our hope that the Trump Administration, at all levels, will cleanse our land of the illegal laws, unjust governmental regulations, and the excessive regulations, that the previous administrations put into place in order to turn our country over to Socialism and Communism. King David said, "Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?" Psalm 94:20 The Socialist administrations of the past tried to change our country from a Republic to a Socialist, or Communist, country through mischievous laws, regulations, and government bureaucracy.

One of the reasons why I think the Trump Administration is good for America is that I feel that Trump is putting individuals into our Federal government agencies that will repeal unneeded, and unjust, legislation, and turn our country back to being a Republic.

I don't mean to discourage my brethren, but I believe that it is already too late for our country.

I'm not even 40 years old and I have already witnessed a MAJOR  downward spiral in the USA.  Especially in the 21st century...things became notably darker, and it has spiraled downhill at an exponential rate. 

Now that we have allowed open, legal & even matrimonial sodomy, it is clear that this empire will fall.

We have allowed sodomites & even women behind the pulpits of America.  God will NEVER bless us when we, as a nation, have defiantly disobeyed Him.

98-99% of the preachers in America are a joke. They've turned churches into a social club.  No hard preaching, no preaching against sin, just LOVE everyone. 

And while of course God is love, God also hates. And He hates righteously. 

I won't pray for God to bless America, because I know God will never bless sin.

I do pray that as this ship sinks further, the hearts of men will not harden against the Lord & that a revival of salvation will pull as many as possible out of the fire.

As far as Trump....he is just like all the other puppets.  He is a wicked, prideful, arrogant, money-obsessed fornicating adulterer who dances to whatever song the "god" of this world(satan) pulls his strings to.

 

 

 

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.".......Ephesians 6:12

BabeinChrist and Brethren,

I fully understand the faults of President Trump and the degrading power of politics in our country.

As I have previously brought out on several occasions, and JimAlaska, a Moderator, found it appropriate to agree with my thoughts, that this thread is limited to only the polices of President Trump is doing to make our country great again by defeating the legislative actions of the previous administrations. As JimAlaska, and I have brought out previously, if you want to bring out President Trumps' bad characteristics, associations we do not agree with, and other detrimental characteristics that he has, please do so in your own thread.

As a polite reminder, here are three of the admonitions that I am referring too:

Brethren,

I wrote the above admonition on August 12, 2016 for a reason. I would prefer that  we not get in a heated discussion.

Thanks!

Genevanpreacher,

If I was looking to join the church that President Donald Trump was pastoring than I would find him using a non-KJV bible a great concern. But, as my commander-in-chief I am not going to make it an issue.

When I fought for my country in the Vietnam War, and everyone else who has been in a combat situation fought for our country, I was more concerned that my officers over me knew their business in making war and not if they were qualified to be the pastor of the church I attended.

Brethren,

I started this thread with the sole intention of discovering how Donald Trump would make our country great again economically, politically, morally, and whether or not he would abide by the Constitution of the United States in leading our country in times of peace and war.

Nor did I start this thread to use as a sounding board to downgrade, browbeat, and for others to try and nick pick the faults of Donald Trump as President. For those brethren who want to continue to find fault with everything President Trump does, belittle him, cause disrespect to him and his policies, than please start you own thread. 

Furthermore, in his first few days in office so far, I think President Donald Trump has done great and that his policies are going to benefit the citizens of the United States of America. I firmly believe that the liberals, communists, wackos, Hillary and her crowd of extremeist feminists, and the liberal press are lying about President Trump and are trying to destroy his effectiveness as the President of the Unites States of America.

Alan

Bro. Alan is making a reasonable request since this thread was started by him. If someone would like to take up his suggestion to start a separate thread I would ask that you please do it in the "Lounge".

 

 

I humbly request that only those policies that President Trump creates that will help America great be brought to our attention. All other issues need to be in another thread as per the admonition of JimAlaska.

I want to thank all of you for adhering to my request.

Oh, I see.

My mistake.

i did not read through all 179 posts prior to commenting, I was posting in relation to your thread's title: "Making America Great Again".  

Had it been titled "Positive Only Thoughts on Donald Trump(or Hillary Clinton)", I would not have posted.

Brethren,

The building of of wall on our border with Mexico was a campaign promise of Trump. A wall in our southern border will greatly enhance the security of the citizens of the United States, help in the reduction of illegal immigrants, and make it harder for terrorists to enter our country. 

http://video.foxnews.com/v/5509481801001/?#sp=show-clips

Among many good things for America, the building of the wall will also help enforce the legal mechanism, through Law, for the immigration of citizens of other countries into the United States. President Trump is making America great by the citizens ruled by the Law of the Land, the Constitution, and not by the dictates of Socialist, illegal immigrants, and those whose flout the Law.

In a recent speech, President Trump outlined that he is placing the national security and financial security of America above the interests of the other governments, ideologies, and the Radical Islamic Terrorists.

http://video.foxnews.com/v/5686534798001/?#sp=show-clips

In the speech, President Trump outlined two main areas:

1. In order to protect the American people, we will build a border wall and end, "the endless chain of migration."

2. Promote financial security for Americans. President Trump said, "Economic security is national security."

I am of the opinion that the actions, Executive Orders, and agenda that President Trump had already enacted, and is planning to enact, will be a benefit for America and Americans.

Thus far he's been quite successful despite the relentless attacks from all sides and within his own ranks.  Satan is not happy.  There is only so much one man, or a group of men and women can do on their own.  With the Lord however, they can accomplish anything.  We should keep praying for the President and his salvation, and that of his staff and growing in grace for those who are genuinely saved as I believe VP Pence is.  If they thought people hated them now, what if Trump announced his salvation and started following the Word?  I reckon it'd be similar to what happened after Moses came down from the mount.

Thus far it is also my thoughts that president Trump has succeeded in helping the American economy, the Judicial system, cleaning some of the government bureau's of dead weights, and has accomplished draining the swamp somewhat. Now,  if some of the liberals, Socialists, activist groups, and RINO's would stop their relentless attacks, the Lord God above could use President Trump to accomplish more for America.

Well, the Lord doesn't need them to stop to accomplish his will.  But they are a distraction to Trump.  He needs to keep the Lord first in all things, following Matthew 6:33 and if he does that, besides getting saved, he'll continue having success.  I hope he does not do what George W. Bush did, and that's let the enemy exist when he had the power to politically destroy them.  The Democrat Party is rotten to its core, it belongs in the dustbin of history right alongside communism.  In order to do that though, the education system as it exists must be abolished, it cannot be reformed.  Giving freedom to parents and local governments will allow many schools, not all will want to, to honor God and America's Judeo-Christian values.

Brethren,

One of the reasons why our country is not as great as it once was is due to the over-regulation of American businesses by Federal government agencies that are not accountable to anybody and are not Constitutionally responsible for these Federal regulations: Congress is responsible, not a non-elected government agency. The excessive regulations decreed, as a power grab by non-elected government officials, over our business, both large and small, is staggering and has hindered many businesses from prospering and has caused many small businesses to cease operations: i.e, failed.

President Trump said, "The courts have let this massive power grab go almost completely unchecked and have almost always ruled in favor of big government. With billions and billions of dollars wasted, regulation is a stealth taxation. So many of these enormous regulatory burdens were imposed on our citizens with no vote, no debate, and no accountability." 

In 1960 there were 20,000 pages of Federal regulations on businesses. Today there are over a staggering 185,000 pages!

In keeping a campaign promise to eliminate unnecessary Federal regulations, President Trump had ordered his  new Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Naomi Rao, to eliminate two Federal regulations for every one new regulation. Thus far, the amount old regulations that have been eliminated has been 22 eliminated for every regulation initiated. No other President has every accomplished this action.

I am firmly convinced that the leadership of president Trump in this action is great for America.

I am also firmly convinced why a lot of elected politicians, swamp bureaucrats, liberals, Socialists, Communists,. newspapers, and TV commentators, are relentless against President Trump is that President Trump is taking away the power and money of these government agencies and is ruling by Constitutional law instead of the individual power grab of our government agencies.

Here is the article, from "The New American:" https://www.thenewamerican.com/economy/commentary/item/27601-trump-s-regulatory-rollback-not-2-to-1-but-22-to-1

Brethren,

Donald Trump made a great economic speech at the, "Detroit Economic Club," in Detroit, MI

 I rarely watch full speeches by any politician, and, personally did not care to hear Trump in a full speech, but, after hearing what he had to say initially, I decided to watch the full speech. I thought it was a great spreech that is worthy of our attention. Here is the link:

I would suggest to watch the full speech. It starts out with an introduction by Pence (which by the way would make a great vice-president), and then Trump presents his economic policies.

Quite frankly, it was almost like hearing the financial and regulatory polices of President Ronald Reagan.

I think the economic policies of a Donald Trump administration would help the financial health of America. Donald Trump, among other policies; would overturn Obamacare, stop any new regulatory policies, overturn many of the destructive regulatory policies of Bill Clinton and Obama, re-negotiate the NAFTA agreement, decrease taxes for businesses, and incorporate economic policies that are helpful to America. There are other good policies that he mentioned that I would suggest you to listen by yourself and make your own judgments.

Trump, in my estimation, is a conservative. He is not the best conservative, but, he is a conservative.

Trump plainly stated that he is against the Globalist policies of Obama, and the potential destructive Globalist policies of Hillary. Trump plainly stated that he  will only institute economic policies that are beneficial to America.

In my estimation, Donald Trump would make a great President and be helpful to our country. It was also good to hear Trump sounding like a flag waving, America loving, conservative, down-to-the-earth, patriotic American. The speech did remind me of President Reagan and his love for America. I came away from hearing the speech and felt that Trump was sincere in speech, loved America, and has the business sense to succeed in his endeavor to help our country.

Alan

Brethren,

I stated the above statement on August 9, 2016.

Today, I saw the attached article, "Trump and Reagan Shared a Common Goal, American Greatness." http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/01/20/trump-and-reagan-shared-common-goal-american-greatness.html

The article explains my thoughts on the purpose of this thread. I want America to be a great country with high ideals, patriotism, cleanse our government of wasteful agencies, and regulations, run our government on the Constitution of the United States and not on Socialist, Communist, activists, liberal, or Muslim agendas.

God Bless America!

Alan

Brethren,

Under the direct actions of President Donald Trump, the economy of the United States has been increasing in a dramatic way. The increase of the economy of the United States is a tangible benefit to all Americans and our way of life.

https://www.thenewamerican.com/economy/markets/item/28956-u-s-economy-adds-another-204-000-jobs-in-april

The newamerican.com article gives concrete examples of the wise economic prowess of President Trump and his administration.

Here are two quotes from the article.

(1). "The labor market continues to maintain a steady growth of strong job growth with little sign of a showdown."

Presidents Trump's business decisions are wise and observable. The economy has risen steadily under his leadership and will maintain a steady growth in the days ahead.

(2) "All that can be seen is the enormous U. S. economy stretching its wings under the Trump administration's pro-business policies."

The pro-business actions of President Trump, and his administration, is of a benefit to all Americans and will make our country economically stronger as President Trump counter-acts the destructive laws and regulations of the Obama administration.

President Trump has made America great again in the economic boom that we are currently experiencing. The current GDP rate is an astounding 4.1 percent!

President Trump has overcome the unnecessary regulations of the economic policies of Clinton and Obama era and given our country phenomenal economic growth.

The economic direction that President Trump has taken has expanded our economy tremendously in every measurable factor. 

The economic decisions that President Trump has taken has benefited every American, of every race, of every color, of every gender, as never before.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/07/27/gdp-report-shows-booming-4-1-percent-growth-as-trump-touts-terrific-numbers.html

Even though the Democratic party has resisted President Trump at every move, God has blessed the United States of America economically through the efforts and economic wisdom of President Trump.

The policies of President Trump, and his administration, are helping the environment, particularly the air,  of the United States.

The New American has a good article concerning the Greenhouse Gas Emissions being lowered in the air here in the United States:  https://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/30381-u-s-greenhouse-gas-emissions-down-other-countries-up

Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said, "Thanks to President Trump's regulatory reform agenda, the economy is booming, energy production is surging, and we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions from major industrial sources." 

The Trump Administration is making America great again by taking away needless regulations, needless liberal policies, and needless activist agendas, and in the process making our air more breathable.

President Trump has made some very important, but some low-key, decisions concerning the welfare of Taiwan, the Republic of China, that has kept America free from communist aggression in South East Asia, Democracy in Taiwan, and the Economic welfare of America.  Thus, President Trump is a leader, a President, that has America's interest at heart.

Below are some excerpts from a recent article in the English newspaper on Taiwan, the Taipei Times, that will give some insight on these low-key decisions that President Trump has made to help America by helping Democratic Taiwan.

Ian Easton On Taiwan: Why the US defends Taiwan

Mon, Sep 16, 2019 - Page 6

“What is clear is that Trump subsequently signed the landmark Taiwan Travel Act, sent Marines to guard the AIT (the de facto American Embassy in Taipei), and personally approved a historic sale of new F-16 jet fighters to the island. By all accounts, US-Taiwan relations have never been better than they are now, and they are likely to get better still in the years ahead. This has all happened despite a massive Chinese influence and intimidation campaign.

What follows are six reasons why any American president should think defending Taiwan is in the best interest of the United States. Note by Alan: I am only going to quote three reasons, Ian Eastons number Second, Third, and Sixth, instead of all six reasons, listed as these three reasons deal directly with the, "Making America Great Again," thread here on Online Baptist.

Second, US economic well-being depends on it. According to the Census Bureau’s July 2019 data, Taiwan is currently America’s 10th largest trading partner (ahead of Italy, Vietnam, and Brazil). Taiwan punches above its weight in many spheres of activity. Trade is no exception. This high tech island is critical to the supply chains that power the US economy. Keeping US technology companies like Apple, IBM, and Google in business means keeping Taiwan from being blockaded, bombed, and overrun.

Third, it’s about the homeland. Chinese officials have repeatedly threatened to launch nuclear attacks on major US cities in the event of a war over Taiwan. ... Taiwan helps keep the Chinese military boxed in.

Sixth, Taiwan is a fellow democracy and, therefore, its survival has intrinsic value.”

 

Below is the full article by Ian Easton in the September 16, 2019 issue of the, "Taipei Times."

President Trump is truly a great leader of the United States of America and is using the office of the Presidency for the citizens of the United States in order to make America the great country it used to be and as our Founding Fathers sought it to be.

President Trump said, "The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations."

President Trump said, "It is why we in the United States have embarked in an exciting program of national renewal."

"Excerpt from The anti-Globalists Speech"
