I was on Twitter the night Aaron from RightScoop started the #NeverTrump hashtag. Candidate Trump had stepped in it again and the #CruzCrew were loving it. To be quite honest, I barely slept that weekend. We had him now. The #NeverTrump movement was the movement that would stop “tiny hands” from ruining us all!
I had already penned my now infamous “An Open Letter to Donald Trump” in which I compared Donald Trump to Hitler, something I hadn’t heard anyone else do at that point.
Regrettably, I knew far less about Nazi’s then than I do now. Trump is really not very Hitleresque at all. Nor is he Musolini-like and to say that he is is spiritually myopic, emotionally shallow and intellectually lazy.
My piece went viral anyway, even devoid of fully vetted claims.

Christian Conservatives loved it, Constitutionalists loved it, Establishment shills loved it, wait a second…Liberal Progressives loved it, the LGBT community loved it, heretical “christian” Democrats loved it…
Dear God, what have I done?
You see, I fell into the trap that Liberals regularly fall into. I was reacting emotionally to a man who I didn’t like.
I was wrong.
Mr. President, my sincerest apologies are in order.
The liberal progressive heretics of the Democratic Party are, collectively, much more like the Third Reich than the Trump Administration could ever be.
By way of penance, with facts gleaned from actual research and devoid of emotional outbursts, I now submit to you my list of things that the true Fourth Reich, whose Obama-era tyranny would surely have continued if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, never would have done.
First, and most importantly for me, or anyone else professing a Judaeo-Christian faith.
1. Reforming and clarifying Religious Liberty legislation.
The Family Research Council reported:
On May 4, President Trump signed an Executive Order declaring, “It shall be the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom.” This order, barely more than a page long, gave few details about what such protections would entail.
However, in it, President Trump also instructed, “In order to guide all agencies in complying with relevant Federal law, the Attorney General shall, as appropriate, issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in Federal law.”
That promised guidance was released on Friday, October 6 by the Department of Justice.
In that memo, Attorney General Jeff Sessions lays out twenty “Principles of Religious Liberty.”
2. The signing Johnson Amendment executive order limiting the Treasury’s actions against religious organizations engaged in political campaign activities.
3. Reinstating the Hyde Amendment withholding certain federal funds from being used for abortion.
4. Appointing of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
5. Appointing young Conservative judges in record numbers nationwide.
6. Holding Bible Studies in the White House for the first time in 100 years.
7. Publicly taking CNN and other left leaning “fakenews”outlets to task.
8. Instituting the Transgender Military Ban which would bar transgender recruits and eliminate Federal funding for gender reassignment procedures.
9. Supporting Pain Tolerant Abortion legislation which would limit abortions performed after 20 weeks.
10. Challenging the unpatriotic NFL “kneelers,” stimulating conversation regarding patriotism.
11. Challenging Obamacare subsidies for Congress.
12. Withdrawing from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP.)
13. Withdrawing from Paris Climate Accord.
14. Issuing permits for the Keystone Pipeline.
15. Restricting Travel from nations friendly to terrorists.
16. Systematically dismantling Obama era legislation.
Are these not Conservative principles?
Every time one of you “patriots” criticize the president simply for the sake of criticism aren’t you really just thumbing your nose at the Conservatism that you claim to embrace and taking an unpatriotic knee along with the resistance’ crybabies of the NFL?
We are not merely rooting for teams on opposite sides of a political football here. We are fighting for the future of our children and grandchildren, who may, God forbid, one day be tasked with tearing down statues of Barack Obama, having finally thrown off the decades of Communist oppression that a Clinton regime would have been all too eager to perpetuate.
Let that sink all the way in.
So, enough with the Cheeto Jesus memes; enough with the misquoted 150 year old Bible Commentary; enough with the misplaced Founders quotes; enough with borrowing talking points from leftist loonies; enough with coming into spiritual agreement with Witches and Satanists.
I know I promised no emotional outrburts, but it’s time for full, undignified, mansplaining disclosure here.
I wept tears of dejection the night Ted Cruz dropped from the race and I wept tears of joy the night Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.
Because I have an 8 year old nephew that is called to be a preacher and the next progressive administration, or one very close on it’s heels, would have him doing so from behind bars.
If you don’t believe that’s true, you’re either alseep, you’re a phony or you’re really making a ton of money sticking to your NeverTrump “principles.”
#TrueResistance lies in Americans saying enough is enough and pushing back against the decades of Liberal indoctrination with actual Conservative policies and Conservative Judges, humbling ourselves before the Creator of the universe and resisting the darkness of progressivism.
If you don’t think Trump and his administration are doing that, then I dare say you’ve forgotten who the swamp dwellers are that he’s fighting against day, after day, after day.
Contrary to my initial primary season predictions, it isn’t Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and their ilk that are blocking President Trump at every turn and being summarily publicly ridiculed for it. It’s the same old Globalist, RINO cast and crew that principled conservatives claim to despise that oppose every breath he takes. Thank the Good Lord that even the GOP Establishment’s pockets aren’t deep enough to keep throwing good money after bad in trying to get Jeff Flake and Bob Corker re-elected.
Apparently they learned their lesson that the people were fed up when Roy Moore beat out Luther Strange in Alabama despite the $30+ million poured into Strange’s campaign.
The swamp is slowly draining my friends, get in and help or get out of the way.
There is a battle in the heavenlies for the souls of men and a battle in Washington D.C for the soul of America; it’s time for the summertime soldiers to have a seat and well past time for the winter warriors to arise.
