But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations
NEW- I obviously had no plan to do this walk- but as the day progressed I felt it was the right thing to do.
I do teach some from the bible chapter I taught earlier this same day- ACTS 21.
But I won’t upload that video until next week.
On these roll outs- I also talk about current issues- news- as well as other stuff.
As I was listening to the news today- sure enough I heard more stuff- that just does not seem to fit into the category of ‘news’.
Some media people are reporting that Trump has dementia.
Now- maybe you believe that- but the person who said it is not a doctor- yet- when media people ‘report’ people think it’s true.
An ESPN commentator was removed from covering an event- because his name is Robert Lee.
The commentator is Asian- he has that name because many Asians and oriental people have that name [Remember Bruce Lee?]
Yet- the name itself was seen as being racist- so they had to act!
I think the rest of the world is looking at us- and laughing.
Ok- this day was a long day.
I’ll post a few regular teaching posts the next day or so.
And that should be it for now-
God bless all-
I just watched CNN- the interview with Don Lemon and James Clapper. ‘Is Trump a threat to national security’.
The piece spoke about Trump being a danger because he might launch nukes- and no one can stop him.
They are also reporting how Trump still blames ‘both sides’.
I can give you many news links- and past reports where those on the left actually were told to beat protesters at ‘right’ rallies.
This has been reported and there are videos on it.
The media is aware that there have been instances where those on the left actually went to beat protesters at rallies.
Yet the media never hold them accountable.
Most of the time you find this out by having to research it yourself.
Any honest person would condemn anyone who went to a rally- with orders- to beat [with sticks at times] the other side in order to garner attention.
When you here Trump say ‘both sides were to blame’ This is what he is referring to.
Now- do the media know this?
Do they tell you that’s really what Trump means?
They have an agenda.
This agenda does not in any way bring a country together.
I am not a quote ‘conservative’ but when you see this non stop game- this is what energizes the radical right.
They have seen it- and know it goes on.
If I walked up to you- and beat you openly- in public- with the intent to start a riot- is that good?
Of course not.
Yet this has indeed happened in the past- primarily by some who were actually hired to do this at rallies.
The media cover this up.
Any normal person could say those who instigated a riot also bare some of the blame.
Yet- that statement alone by the president has been reported that Trump backs Nazi’s-
Yes- as simple and plain as this is- the media will report that if some on the left beat a protester- and even if that protester does not fight back- the media will still report that a Trump rally started a riot.
The interview with Clapper and Don lemon- lemon was so excited about talking about Trump being an unhinged man- that the free world is in danger of Trump launching Nukes- for personal benefit.
All of this language- this narrative- all of it has never gone on before with such disdain.
Some in the media have called for Trumps son to face the death penalty over any involvement with Russian collusion.
Chelsea Clinton just came out to defend Trumps son.
A Democrat from Missouri openly Texted she hopes Trump gets assassinated-.
Yet some in the media and the Democratic party have not even condemned it.
If you had a Republican dare express their desire for Obama to be assassinated the media would be in an uproar.
What does that tell you?
The media wants the assassination of Trump?
There silence speaks volumes.
CBS has a new headline on their 24 hour news site- REAL NEWS.
They do this to fight back against Trump calling them fake news.
But fake news is indeed what I Just told you about.
Fake news is when someone on the left can express thru a text they hope Trump is killed.
And for their to be no outrage- no media coverage- and then to move on to a story that says Trump will Nuke the world out of personal benefit.
What does North Korea think when they see this?
The discussion also went along the lines of ‘someone from the inside must stop Trump’-
This was with a man- James Clapper- who lied to Congress during a hearing about illegal data collection by the NSA-
He lied openly about the program which the courts themselves later ruled to be unconstitutional [Andrew Snowden].
He than later admitted- to Congress- that he lied to them- because he felt it was the best answer to give at the time.
Though he committed a crime- equal to what we are presently holding other citizens in jail for-
Yet he is on CNN basically calling for someone from inside the government to stop Trump- because he is a dangerous man who might Nuke the world.
This mantra goes on day after day in the media.
It has fueled the radical right.
As you watch the news- you see the glee in their faces when they talk about this.
There are causes- on the left- that I back.
I have angered many of my conservative friends when I came out as pro immigrant.
I was actually for national health care- yes- I spoke for it in the past.
I defend Black Lives Matter- those who have followed us for any time know this.
But some on the left- they see part of their cause as also supporting much of the misinformation that the media give.
I see many on the left reveling in their absolute hatred for Trump.
The same hatred I saw that many on the right had for Obama.
This hatred drives them.
The main stream media are simply not capable of covering the news fairly.
The public does not need Trump to tell them ‘they are fake news’- The public sees it themselves.
I have watched other world news sources- including Al-Jazeera!
To be honest- they actually cover real world news.
I see more honest and balanced coverage on Al- Jazzera than with the main stream news- that’s the truth.
Many liberals were outraged that a member of congress would say Obama Lied.
Some of those same people believe it is freedom of speech for a Democrat congresswoman to openly express her desire for Trump to be assassinated.
They do not see the double standard.
Those who hold this view are simply not honest-
We should be for what is good- and against what is evil- regardless of what side of the Political aisle you are on.
Ok- that should be it for today- unless something else comes up before I post.
If I got you mad- or to re-think some stuff- good.
Because both sides need to examine what is going on at this time in this country-
I guess I’ll end with Plato [some ascribe it to Socrates]-
THE UNEXAMINED LIFE IS NOT WORTH LIVING-
MORE- Today I have the chance of watching more of the live news then usual.
I actually do not feel tired or sore from the 33 mile walk- to be honest.
I almost was going to go out and yes- do my evening walk- but I guess that would be pushing it.
So- I’m watching CBS live.
I found it interesting the way they have been reporting Trumps speech to the American Legion and his speech in Phoenix – and I knew they were lying- I’ll include the entire speech below.
For the last hour they were reporting how Trump went back to his old ways- In his speech.
How he attacked [yes- the headline on the screen for the hour is TRUMP ATTACKS Republicans- Democrats- etc.]
So- for about an hour they said when Trump goes off message- it’s like he is another person- his true feelings are seen.
Then they spoke about the speech- but the short clip they played- was actually good- and in no way contradicted his recent ‘prepared’ speech to the country.
Yet- they went on in depth about why he would go back to his attacks against all sides- why he would destroy his good speech the other night by attacking everyone.
Yet- it seemed to me- that they must simply be lying.
They realize few viewers will actually read the text of the speech.
After about hearing them do this for an hour- they gave the narrative that the Trump we saw the other night- was not the real Trump.
The other night he was forced- by his handlers- to read words from a prepared speech- that he actually did not believe in.
Then they justified this- by their coverage of the speeches to the American Legion and Phoenix.
They would have you think that he used the N word- attacked not only the minority community but just about every group you could think of.
The coverage made it sound like he went on some racist twitter tirade- how could he do such a thing?
They had no reasonable explanation to why he would be a totally different man- with such a divisive message- just a few days after his well received speech by the nation-
They were truly dumbfounded- below is this utterly disgraceful racist speech- read it for yourself-
[I googled for the full text of the presidents speech- to the American Legion- and accidentally copied a speech he gave in 2016- which was fine- a good speech. But I wanted the FULL TEXT of this most recent speech- and have not been able to find it- so I’ll simply add how the media reported it- and a link or 2. He was also criticized for a Phoenix Rally speech- I’ll add that link as well]
LAST NOTE- Watching CBS news- they played the Don Lemon interview with Clapper where Clapper said the real Trump came out at the Rally speech- and the prepared statements came out at the Legion speech. They also said Trump is unfit to be president- and he is looking for a way out. The average public- by not actually reading the camping type rally speech- will think Trump came out and openly supported the Nazi party. Then they showed Trump reciting part of his message after the Virginia tragedy- and then said ‘this is what he really said’- meaning- he was just lying to us. Actually he left out the part where he said ‘both sides are to blame’- meaning some at the rally- did strike the alt right people- possibly first- I saw the video. But the media said he lied- meaning he defends Nazi’s. I guess the worst part of the coverage was to actually say the president is unfit to serve- and he’s looking for a way out [like a Nuclear war?]. I do not defend Trump in all of his statements- but to openly say on the word news that he is unfit to serve- and looking for a way out- is simply not news. As I write- I hear in the background them playing the recent release of Hillary’s book- saying in her voice ‘ Back up you Creep’- talking about Trump. She did say this in her new book- but to have that statement ‘BACK UP YOU CREEP’- To give it top news- and not show a single response from Trump is more of the same. If a critic wrote a book on Obama- and in his words said something like that- would you Play it on world news? Right after the story of how Trump is unfit and unhinged? This simply verifies all of the above-Good job media! Oh- by the way- Harvey is top news- heading our way- Hmm? As I finish up- I just heard ‘up next- cover up in Charlottesville’- what might it be? Trump had Nooses ready and was wearing a white sheet? You know- like the world news just actually played Hillary’s voice ‘BACK UP YOU CREEP’. World news- disgrace.
Harvey- I watched this storm- it was not projected to come near us at the start- I just saw the recent tracking- it actually made some what of a turn- and most tracks have it headed directly to Corpus Christi.
Here is the full text of the rally speech- which if you read it- is in no way some sort of racist speech- Trump even addresses that issue in the speech- which they are now describing in the manner above. If you simply read the headlines on the way the media is reporting it- it’s astounding] http://time.com/4912055/donald-trump-phoenix-arizona-transcript/
This paper- the Washington Post- has been a critic of Trump- yet if you look at the selected pieces of Trumps speech to the Legion-which would be the worst- they are actually good . If I find the full text- I’ll post it-
RENO, Nev. — President Trump called for unity in a speech at the American Legion’s 99th National Convention here, just hours after a raucous campaign-style rally in which he lambasted the media and his political rivals and reignited the controversy over his response to a white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville this month.
“It is time to heal the wounds that have divided us, and to seek a new unity based on the common values that unite us,” Trump said, speaking before more than 5,000 members of the largest veterans group. “We are one people, with one home and one flag.”
“We are not defined by the color of our skin, the figure on our paycheck or the party of our politics,” Trump continued.
Trump argued that “shared humanity,” “citizenship” and patriotism could heal the nation’s divides political and racial divides, and he heralded the work of the Legion in promoting American values.
Trump’s remarks come at a time when he is facing continued pressure to stem the divisions exposed by a deadly rally in Charlottesville this month, which was organized by hate groups including the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi sympathizers.

Trump’s turbulent Phoenix rally, in 3 minutes
President Trump gave a contentious speech at a campaign rally in Phoenix on Aug. 22, attacking the media, GOP senators and “obstructionist” Democrats. Here are the highlights.(Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)
The comments were a sea change from Trump’s posture hours earlier at a rally in Phoenix on Tuesday night, at which he angrily railed against the “dishonest” media for its coverage of his remarks on the Charlottesville gathering. Initially, he had blamed “many sides” for the conflict, rather than criticizing the collection of Ku Klux Klan, white-supremacist and neo-Nazi groups that planned the event.
His first statement was widely condemned, including by lawmakers in his own party, prompting Trump to issue new scripted comments that named the hate groups. But even after correcting his initial remarks, Trump reverted back to his original stance, claiming at a news conference later that week that there were “fine people” among the hate groups who had gathered to protest the removal of a Confederate statue.
In his campaign rally, Trump reread his comments on the Charlottesville remarks, but omitted the words “many sides.”
And he blamed the media for accusing him of being racist.
“I hit them with neo-Nazi. I hit them with everything. I got the white supremacists, the neo-Nazi. I got them all in there. Let’s see: KKK? we have KKK. I got them all,” Trump said in Phoenix. “So what are they saying, right? It should have been sooner. He’s a racist. It should have been sooner, okay?”
But in Reno, Trump appeared to stick to his carefully crafted script, focusing on his administration’s efforts to improve services for veterans, a key focus on the nation’s largest veterans organization.
After his speech Wednesday, he signed into law the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act, which reforms the process by which veterans can appeal their claims for disability benefits with Veterans Affairs.

“I promised you that I would make it my priority to fix the broken VA and to deliver to our veterans the care they so richly deserve,” Trump said. “And you see what’s been happening.
“Now you have a true reformer in Secretary David Shulkin.”
Shulkin served as undersecretary of Veterans Affairs for health under President Barack Obama before he was named secretary by Trump in January.
But Trump’s response to the racial divisions in the country hung over his appearance here before a group of veterans that included some who fought against Nazism and fascism in World War II.
The day before Trump’s appearance, the Legion voted to reaffirm a nearly 100-year-old resolution condemning hate groups.
The resolution states that “the American Legion considers any individual, group of individuals, or organizations, which creates, or fosters racial, religious or class strife among our people, or which takes into their own hands the enforcement of law, determination of guilt, or infliction of punishment, to be un-American, a menace to our liberties, and destructive to our fundamental law.”
Trump was expected to hold up the values espoused by the Legion as an example of how the country can begin to unite.
“We are here to hold you up as an example of the strength, courage and love that our country will need to overcome every challenge that we face,” Trump said. “We are here to draw inspiration from you as we seek to renew the bonds of loyalty that bind us together as one people and one nation.

“If American patriots could secure our Independence, carve out a home in the wilderness, and free millions from oppression around the world, that same sense of patriotism, courage and love can help us create a better future for our people today,” he added.
Despite the controversy, veterans have long been supportive of Trump generally.
Among those who gathered to hear Trump’s remarks at the convention, some were sympathetic to his approach to the Charlottesville controversy.
“He’s not a very delicate guy. He never says things in a very delicate way,” said Ed Riley, a retired Navy fighter pilot who began serving in 1970. “I never heard him ever endorse any of the far right.
“It always upsets me when the news says this was a white-supremacist thing. It was not; it was nationalist — a white-nationalist [thing],” Riley added.
