Yes Obama is...
---Jerry6593 on 6/25/17

Jerry, is this ALL you have?? My, you do make me laugh.
---NurseRobert on 6/25/17

nursey: "He is a lying, misogynistic, self centered child who hasn't a clue what he's doing. He changes his story like you change your socks."

Yes Obama is, and we're glad HE is no longer our POTUS. We endured 8 years of this illegitimate fool ruining our nation. Trump has done more good for the American people in 6 months than B.O. did in 8 years.

---Jerry6593 on 6/25/17

---Nicole_Lacey on 6/24/17

I love how you jump to "I hate Trump."

Yes, Trump was elected, but there was more to it than the Democrats screwing it up. I certainly don't hate Trump, but I don't trust him, either. He is a lying, misogynistic, self centered child who hasn't a clue what he's doing. He changes his story like you change your socks. Now its, yes, the Russians mettled in the election, but it was the other guys fault. So what's his answer next week?

In May 2015, he said he would not touch Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security. The new health care bill that he is touting will cut almost 3/4 of a TRILLION dollars from medicaid.

But, certainly, feel free to support him.
---NurseRobert on 6/24/17

NurseRobert, the problem you have is that you can't see your own hate.

You refuse any authority. You are so mad at Trump that you can't see that your own party betrayed you not us.

The Right realized the RINO GOP betrayed us after the 2010, 2012, and 2014 elections.

So we ALLOWED a former Democrats (who saw the light) become our Republican President.

Not the Russians, we the PEOPLE.

He kept his promises. The man STILLS draws massive crowds 7 months after he WON the election. Did see him in Iowa?

Wake up and clean your own party and win some elections.

Complaining about us isn't cleaning your own house.

Our house is clean. It took 6 years, but we did it!

Do the same. Stop crying!

nurse: "Did your mommy not give you enough love?"

Very respectful.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it you lefties who run to your safe spaces to hug Teddy Bears, use playdough, color, etc. because of all the mean names (hate speech) you are called? You really don't see what a laughingstock you've become, do you?

From a Biblical perspective, Jesus said:

Luk 17:28,30 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot ... Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Lot lived in Sodom. The US is fast approaching the decadence of Sodom due to the VILE transgender, LGBTQ agenda of the left. Doesn't that scare you?

---Jerry6593 on 6/24/17

NURSE. You reacted like typical Leftist, abusing others as haters, in spite of fact Left/DEMs are biggest hate group.

And yet again you repeat your lie that I supposedly allege Left is bad & Right is good.
Read my past posts to see I said Right is LESSOR OF 2 EVILS, then rethink whether you really want to continue with your lie.

The Left is clearly the greater evil (as it was in history too, under Stalin, Hitler, Mao, etc) and even more so now as its significantly increased its hate, violence, terrorism, deceit, since Trump.
Being confronted with facts of the evils of your beloved DEMs has put you in a state of cognitive dissonance, thus your reactionary outbursts. I suggest a better approach is let facts red pill you.
---Haz27 on 6/23/17

---Haz27 on 6/22/17

You're verbal diarrhea gets old. I have never, in my life, seen such a hater as you. What makes you so hateful? Was it your upbringing? Did your mommy not give you enough love?

You perseverate, repeating the same old tired refrain that the right is good and the left is bad. If you repeat your lie enough, someone might believe you.

I will continue to pray for you. I hope the kids get off your lawn.
---NurseRobert on 6/23/17

NURSE. Considering your staunch defence of the Left (the biggest hate group in US), in spite of their baby slaughter, deviancy indoctrination of children, LGBT agenda, death threats against Trump, violence against conservatives, divisive identity politics, hate, bigotry, etc, it's clear you're so brainwashed that you have truly embraced the insanity that Jerry spoke of.

History seems to be repeating itself with the Left's modern day version of Nazism, Stalinism on the rise.
---Haz27 on 6/22/17

Because people on the right are not massively insane like their left-wing counterparts.

---Jerry6593 on 6/22/17

Actually, they are, they are just more subtle about it. In the first month after Trump took office, there were over 1000 reported instances of crimes against others perpetuated by Trump supporters.

Of course, you and your friend Haz refuse to believe the right wingers are anything but little angels, walking to Sunday School, reading their Bibles.
---NurseRobert on 6/22/17

nurse: "You want my weapon, too?"

If you are a Democrat, then you are insane. You didn't see right wingers take to the streets in mob rioting when Clinton or Obama won the elections did you? You didn't see people at Tea Party rallies looting, burning, wearing masks, attacking people or defecating on cop cars, did you? Why not??? Because people on the right are not massively insane like their left-wing counterparts.

---Jerry6593 on 6/22/17

NURSE. We know that you always dishonestly try to justify your loyalty to the Left. After all, to admit that they're evil would implicate you as well.

But your deliberate deflections have no relevance as the issue is not about an individual, but about the political powers that drive the agendas for baby slaughter, deviancy indoctrination of children, etc.

Your Leftist puppet masters are the ones pushing the slogan that its all about the mothers right over her own body, thus dehumanizing the baby as having no right to life. This is what you constantly try to deflect this debate from just to justify your support for the genocidal Left.
---Haz27 on 6/20/17

---Haz27 on 6/20/17

Ohhh.. the left is bad.. the right is good... That's the only argument you have. Well not really, you have lots of hyperbole with NO facts to back it up.

Its a simple question Haz.. what have you don't to stop the need for abortions???
---NurseRobert on 6/20/17

SAMUEL. I stand by my comments as you've shown you're a follower of far Left through your virtue signalling, repeating Left's propaganda lies, insults, and remaining silent about their evil. Maybe you're just brainwashed by Fake News and don't realize, but then most ordinary peaceful Germans were brainwashed by Hitler's Fake news too.

NURSE. Yet again you deflect from the Left's baby slaughter, it's push for welfare dependence leading to poverty, family breakdown, starvation, crime, and it's push for deviancy indoctrination of children, it's divisive identity politics etc.

Clearly you deflect with the sole aim of justifying your loyalty to your Leftist puppet masters, regardless of their far greater evils.
---Haz27 on 6/20/17

Samuelbb7. You have consistently demonstrated here on CN that you're a follower of the far Left.
---Haz27 on 6/19/17

Samuelbb7, don't worry bout Haz. Repeating the same old tired lies is all he has.

He refuses to accept the fact that there are right wingers who also accept abortions and the right to choose. He consistently fails to explain just what he is doing to stop the need for abortions, simple things like appropriate education, easily accessible birth control.

Haz would rather listen to his right wing puppet masters who would rather let a child starve instead of buying a new jets the military does not want.

His only response is left is bad and right is good.. He lives in a strange, myopic world.
---NurseRobert on 6/20/17

Dear Haz.

Please don't accuse me of something you have no proof of. I have never been and will never be a follower of the far left. I was a moderate republican for decades.

But the extreme right has made that position untenable. With accusations like you just made.

I also put the love of others above politics. So I can love you but disagree with you. Nor do I have to insult you or make up points against you.

GOD loves you and so do I.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/20/17

Samuelbb7. You have consistently demonstrated here on CN that you're a follower of the far Left.

Silence is consent, and your silence suggests consent for the heartless Left's slaughter of babies, their deviancy indoctrination of school children, their agenda to increase poverty, family breakdown, crime, etc.

Your trust in the Left's Fake News is no different to that of the average German in 1930's who believed Hitler's mainstream media Fake News.

I suggest you stop trusting in your Leftist puppet masters who dominate the media, Hollywood, universities, schools, institutions, etc, for the very purpose of brainwashing you.

You should instead trust in God.
---Haz27 on 6/19/17

No. The Bible speaks of understanding current events.

I have always and will continue to be a moderate. I have seen both the far left and the far right demonize each other.

Did you hear the story where a right wing group stated that Hillary Clinton ran a child slavery ring. Out of a Pizza basement. One person who believed that went to the Pizza place with a rifle. He find the place had no basement.

When a group tells you to not listen to the Newspapers and only listen to what they say. Then they are doing what Autocratic leaders have done for ages. Try to control what you see and hear. So to control you.

WE cannot let men take the place of GOD.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/19/17

Jerry6593 on 6/17/17
As a true American..
All Democrats and Muslims should be barred from gun ownership.

But then, there's Byron Williams who wanted to shoot people at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU. Or the assassination of Dr. George Tiller. Or the murder of three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, CO. . Or the racially motivated massacre killing nine black lives in Charleston, or the man who shot up a family pizzeria.

Each of these cases can be traced back to right wing vitriol by such mouth pieces such as Hannity, Limbaugh, ORielly, Jones and even Donnie. All God fearing, sane, republicans.. so they should have THEIR guns. You want my weapon, too?

yeah, youre a true American.
---NurseRobert on 6/19/17

John9346. We likewise have some conservative journalists in Australia too, exposing the Left's lies.

One journalist (Andrew Bolt) was recently violently attacked by Leftists at a cafe. He was able to fend off the 2 Fascist Lefties who attacked.

A conservative senator had his political office trashed by large gang of Leftist thugs.

I hear Leftists in USA are known for same type of Fascist attacks we see here. I heard about the recent shooting by a DEM's Lefty.

Followers of the Left here on CN deflect to the deceitful Left's manufactured issues, BUT they conveniently remain silent about the mass slaughter of unborn babies, the deviancy indoctrination of school children, etc that the Left always pushes for.
---Haz27 on 6/17/17

As a true American, I've always been against any form of gun control. But the recent spate of violence by left wing extremists and muslim jihadists has caused me to change my mind.

All Democrats and Muslims should be barred from gun ownership due to their mental instability.

haz27 states, "John9346. It's obvious the likes of CNN, New York Times, Washington Post, BBC, etc, are Fake News."

Yes sir... and they don't hide their prejudice...

Many of these networks have loss the Ability to Reason and be objective their jobs are to report and let the viewers decide.

I can say that Brent Baier on Special Report is one of the most Objective/independent Reporters on the air right now...

I greatly appreciate Shawn Hannity's Objective Reporting...
---john9346 on 6/16/17

NURSE. Yes, Aust politics is screwed. That's thanks to Left's swamp.

The far Left leader of State of Victoria (where violent Fascist Lefty thugs mostly reside, just like in CA) appointed only Leftist judges for High Court. Conservatives who call out the obvious political bias of this are alleged to be in contempt of (the Left's) court.
This is same state where Left's deviancy indoctrination of school children is enforced.

Pauline Hanson was attacked by Left's swamp 20 years ago. She was made Aust first political prisoner (justice eventually prevailed, conviction overturned). Pauline has already experienced the same deluge of lies, innuendo, hate, threats that Trump gets from Left's corrupt swamp
---Haz27 on 6/16/17

Answering a question by pointing the finger at someone else , so one is NOT answering a question or accepting rebuke, reminds me of the way children hope they won't get in trouble, because...after all, look what Billy is/ was doing. Gosh, and to think this kind of mentality is running the country. Believe it or not, people are not that stupid to be sidetracked.

Yes it's important to listen to ALL outlets, and not rely on ALTERNATIVE TRUTH, or ALTERNATIVE FACTS, also known as FAKE NEWS totally owned by the Trump administration.
---kathr4453 on 6/16/17

John9346. It's obvious the likes of CNN, New York Times, Washington Post, BBC, etc, are Fake News.

We see same in Aust. Our taxpayer funded ABC breaks law ignoring its charter obligations on impartiality & balance. It even tries to argue it's not Leftist Fake News by paying a fellow Leftist journalist for an "independent" audit to deceitfully claim that ABC is not biased...LOL.

Our Human Rights Commission is run by corrupt Lefties pushing Left's PC racism, discrimination, hate.

Chief of ASIO (like your CIA) lied to Senate saying that Muslim refugees are not into terrorism. Within days of that lie the 5th Muslim refugee terrorist attack occurred here.

The Left's swamp here is just as corrupt as in USA.
---Haz27 on 6/16/17

The problem with naming real news stations as fake and radical right news sites as real. Is that truth is lost.

In Palestine the news says the Holocaust never happened and all Christians are members of the Roman Catholic church. They say all the regular news of the world organizations are false.

The same lie being told by the far right here in the U.S.

They do so for the same reason. Get people to believe a lie.

My wife heard on fox news that the lady reporter didn't see the congressman body slam a reporter. But ABC news broadcast her report from Fox news when she reported live.

The Fox news had lied. It was there for all to see.

So don't believe one station or news outlet. Check sources.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/16/17

I always pray during the news: for people who have been injured in shootings or accidents, for abused children, and those murdered. I pray for trials that the truth will be fairly determined.

Get the idea?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/16/17


what You state is so true I remember during the debates when they tried to beat now President Trump with what he said about women, Trump turned it back on them about what Bill Clinton did to women...

I remember Senator Claire McClaskill saying she was wrong for condemning Bill Clinton's Sexist Behavior lol

But she said she is for Women's Rights :-)
---john9346 on 6/16/17

NurseRob. Yes, Donald would be proud I recognize Left's Fake news. Like many, I recognized Left's Fake News 20 years ago.

In Aust the biggest Fake news is ABC, a taxpayer funded giant. It breaks the law by deliberately ignoring it's charter obligations on impartiality & balance.

Hence they just push Left's Fake News like Stolen generations, global warming, LGBT agenda, asylum seekers (opportunists), Islam=peace (in spite of its hate, death).

When Leftist political leader was accused of rape, the Left's ABC downplays it. But when conservative Catholic Cardinal is accused of pedophilia (for which they cannot find credible support for), the ABC makes continuous headline news on it.

The swamp must be drained.

Ahh, the right's subterfuge. I love how you try to use misdirection. It goes along with you calling any news you don't agree with "fake". Donald would be proud of you.

If there was nothing to hide, why was she making such a big deal out of it?

I love the fact that Trump is in a tizzy because a special prosecutor - a former director of the FBI appointed by Bush II and latter appointed as Deputy Attorney General by the same president - has decided that Trump should be investigated. I honestly hopes Trumps fires him. Watergate all over again.

Far as Hillary ... all those investigations and money spend for what??

Seems to me Australian politics are just as screwed up.
---NurseRobert on 6/15/17

NURSE. Ahh...the Left's subterfuge.

Farage allegedly sang song (you're relying on Left's Fake News) when a TEENAGER (an important point you conveniently avoided). And what was context of singing it?

Like Trump (who is trying to drain the Left's corrupt swamp), Pauline is likewise attacked by corrupt Left.

Secret recordings are illegal here.
There was nothing to hide. It was the issue of disgruntled ex employee who illegally recorded and then provided recording to corrupt Left who sought to discredit through their trademark exaggeration, innuendo, deceit (much like what they're doing to Trump, Sessions).

Interestingly you conveniently ignore Hillary's/DEM's crimes= email scandal, Seth Rich murder, etc.
---Haz27 on 6/15/17

All one needs to do is listen to Trump himself....and common sense says he hung himself by his own words and own actions.

Let Pence take the reigns. I do believe I've said this before. In case you didn't know HAZ Pence is a Conservative RIGHTIE. Are you accusing the VP of being a LEFTIE? Shame on you..again LYING about everyone.

YOU AGAIN DO NOT LISTEN, but love using your time here promoting your own broken record announcement. It has NOTHING to do with what I said.
---kathr4453 on 6/15/17

---Haz27 on 6/15/17

Is this the same Nigel Farage who sang gas em all, gas em all, a neo-Nazi song about Jewish people?

Is this the same Pauline Hanson who was forced to pay legal costs after abandoning her court bid to stop the ABC airing secret recordings of One Nation meetings? Gee, what was she hiding?

Seems Australia is not so different that the US..

Kathr. Sadly you have no discernment as you believe the lies of Left's Fake News, etc.

We have Left's Fake News in Australia too. Also corruption from Leftists in the swamp here, pushing their divisive hate, identity politics, etc.

Hopefully Trump does eventually drain the swamp.
We need a good political leader here in Aust who likewise will drain the swamp here.

Sadly, in REPs, and similar so called "conservative" parties in Australia, UK, etc, there are globalists/Lefties corrupting things.
BUT, the UK has true conservatives like Nigel Farage. And in Australia we have true conservatives Pauline Hanson & Cory Bernardi. All these true conservatives support Trump and denounce Left's lies.

---Haz27 on 6/15/17

Haz27, if Christians listen to what is going on in the world, my prayer that they will pray for discernment to know truth from lies, and not justification to ONE source of propaganda reinforcing what they WANT to believe.

I am so greatful OUR GOVERNMENT has checks and balances, where we see WISDOM on both sides of the aisle.

I'm also greatful that there are those who have put their lives in harms way to expose the rantings and underhandedness of someone who has no clue what is and is not LEGAL in OUR government as opposed to personal business practices. We see by ones own tweet ranting that even other conservatives across the pond are shaking their head at our interference and now calling THEM names and twisting their words.
---kathr4453 on 6/15/17

NurseRob. Great to see we agree on something :)
---Haz27 on 6/15/17

Kathr. We live in age of propaganda that aims to control society.

Hitler, etc, did it, likewise today China, etc state controlled media.
Throughout the West Leftist dominated "Fake News" media deceive many, to further Left's agenda.

As the deceitful Left dominate public debate through their control over media, Hollywood, universities, etc, (which was Communists stated aim, referred to as the "LONG MARCH" through institutions), then it's clear this will manipulate many.

Those who succumb to the Left's propaganda control over public debate/thought are correctly called "Leftists", just as those who succumbed to Socialist Hitler's propaganda control through media are called NAZI's.

Is it wrong to be very interested in current events?
---Tammy on 6/10/17

I will relay my own experience.

About 25 years ago, I was anxious, disturbed, and generally irritable most of the time. I sought professional help and I was questioned about my habits and my TV watching specifically.

When I examined my TV watching, I found that three subjects seemed to keep me constantly stirred up and lacking serenity and peace. The three subjects were sports, news, and politics.

I immediately quit watching these subjects and have continued this ever since. I rarely know what is going on in the world and as a result, I am better able to focus on my little corner of the world.
---Mark_Eaton on 6/14/17

Tammy, IF Chriatians believe they are NOT to vote for our leaders, then they also should not be calling folks names like "lefties" or "righties" causing dissension among believers.

I also believe IF someone claims they are a Christian and uses Christians to get votes, then by all means every Christian should thoroughly search to see if that is true, or if Christians are being deceived. I believe that is our God given duty as well. To seek things ABOVE is to also seek the MIND OF GOD and discern our adversaries who roam around like a lion seeking to devour.

Peoples own words and tape recordings and tweets are not FAKE NEWS.
---kathr4453 on 6/13/17

Tammy, I think it's better to set our minds on things above, on the Lord than to be overly concerned with the things of this world including current events. Politics and politicians offer no hope of better things in and of themselves, but I would not condemn others for their views. A degree of interest is one thing, simple awareness, but obsessing another. While a believer lives in a moment in flesh, hope and faith are not limited to the current, but are in what is not seen.
---Chria9396 on 6/13/17

Don't obsess over current events. Just be aware of it, but trust that God is ultimately in control.

---Haz27 on 6/12/17

I have to admit, this is one thing that Haz and I agree about.

"No" there is nothing wrong with staying current with current events. In fact, in my opinion,a Christian is obligated to stay current. How else is a Christian going to vote and pray with any amount of intelligence.

The problem is separating the real news from the fake news.
---WIVV on 6/12/17

Don't obsess over current events. Just be aware of it, but trust that God is ultimately in control.

The real fight is the most important issue Christians should focus on.

1Tim 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life (John 3:16), to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment (to believe on Jesus) without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing
---Haz27 on 6/12/17

Current events are spoken in 2 Timothy 3. And of coarse "WOE TO THOSE WHO CALL EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL."

We so often find ourselves KICKING ourselves because we failed to see all the signs of those who end up snapping and going off the rails. The SIGNS were there all along, but we found ourselves making excuse after excuse for bad behavior. That's called enableing, much like the "affluenza " case.....which ended up even worse....

What OTHER new definitions will the depraved use to cover SIN? " Grab them by the $%##} didn't phase so called CHRISTIANS one bit making them enablers. Their political party is MORE IMPORTANT and has become their God. Are things going to get better? The Bible says NOT.
