What's Right What's Left
Pastor Ernie Sanders

Just what is the deep states how exactly do we drain the swamp.

It is been the privilege and honor of a lifetime for me to serve as a member of the United States Congress serving as the first woman ever elected from the state of Minnesota and the capacity of being a Republican. It's an honor and as the bride of life. Over 90% in some 95 even 90% of all stories against Donald Trump have been hostile, negative, and most of them baseless times radio John Marco so we begin a two-part series with former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

This broadcast chance conversation with Michelle will surround all the issues of what some of all the silent toward our president to find this discussion with Michelle both insightful and hopeful Michelle will be with us today and next week will be lots of topics to cover so let's get started.

John Marco were wary of accrued public. There are people in this country who are warning take over the government for using bullets using the media to fall. Some people's minds that he's in complement. You can't trust them with nuclear weapons mentally unstable.

All of these also try to put in people's minds so that they can rustle control of the government away from Donald Trump. We need to be praying that we need to pray for my parents.

We need to pray for those that surround the present that God will protect them and keep them safe. And I believe that he is the president of this nation because God God allowed it, lecture like God intervene wasn't supposed to when he was supposed to think it was God that walked in a mysterious way that that might election might turn the tables and so we ask people to keep praying man and I'm going to pray for is not the president and we need to support all that we can and welcome to the program where you please help you understand the times and become watchmen on the wall will talk about that little soundbite just a moment.

I begin a two-part series today with someone who has become one of my most popular commentators and guests. Michele Bachmann. She served in state politics here in Minnesota and moved to the U.S. House over a decade ago ran for president in 2012 and will give you an update on just what she's doing now as we move into the programming and were going to be talking about news and headlines that are not being shared to scare you but to remind you that many issues we talked about on this program are foretold in the Bible. They are signs of our coming redemption and Michele Bachmann. Welcome back to understanding the times radio. Thank you so much fun to be in the studio with you again and little soundbite was Franklin Graham talking about a cool and you and I were talking a little bit off the air were talking about deep state about the swamp play another clip a little bit later but before we get into a lot of other discussion I'm I do want to ask about Donald Trump's first year heritage foundation says more accomplishments Donald Trump's first year, then Reagan's first year. Tell me your thoughts after just over a year now quite phenomenal.

I in fact, I've had people say to me you know I thought I like Trump. I won't say that anymore.

I love Trenton and it's because the word that I use for him is that he's that disruptor. He has disrupted something that needed to be disrupted. That's the bubble in Washington DC and he's done it for the better and he's done it all Jan while he's had the full frontal course of a hostile media against him.

In fact, you've seen pulling numbers that have said that over 90% in some cases, 95, even 98% of all stories against Donald Trump have been hostile, negative, and most of them baseless. So he set up a very difficult time to progress what he's wanted to do, but it's amazing the turnaround and especially for issues that believers care about true now in my lifetime Michelle I have not seen the polarization left versus right, conservative versus liberal, even liberal versus Christian I've never seen it so intense as it has been in the last year. Since the election of November 2016 and again the onset of what's been called Trump derangement syndrome. I don't care what it's called the fact of the matter is, the left will not accept the results of that election and the pushback I've never seen anything but the hatred is palpable right it's irrational and I think again that is difficult because there's various passages in Scripture that talk about just irrational levels of hatred we see that between Palestinians and Israelis and spend just irrational hatred coming out of the Arab world against Israel. It's bizarre, but we see here in the United States to and all we can know is that the more that we stay with the true plumb line of truth that brings about the greatest amount of happiness and effectiveness of the world and I think when we see people hold onto delusions and lies.

What the Scripture says in Romans one is that we are given over to those dementia true. That's part of some of that comes out of Romans one where were given over to a depraved mind if we reject God, but it seems to me, and my goodness you are in Washington for 2007 through 2020 1314, which for eight years as I perceive things the left's only purpose right now is obstruction. I mean they they hate the idea of American exceptionalism and they seem to only want to hurt the American people in it. Nobody on the left can see this while abstracting legislation from going forward. But destruction is what they that are out and they were swimming along pretty happily. It didn't bother them that under Pres. Barack Obama.

There wasn't one year where we consistently had 3% level of growth, which is what a nation needs to have it didn't bother them that we didn't have it didn't bother them. The black unemployment was skyrocketing. None of those numbers bother them at all.

All they cared is that they were putting forward their quote progressive agenda which has a lot to do with socialist agendas and that's all they care but now here we have a situation where the Dow Jones industrial average and the stock market has seen and was reported today of 45% level of increase.

So you're seeing the American economy take off like it never has over this last year under Donald Trump. There was over a 3% level of growth for that gross domestic product. That means the entire economy has expanded that by that much.

In fact, Jamie diamond has said that we may have reached 4% yet this year.

So were seeing a real turn in the economy, which means from the lowest person in the United States financially all the way up to the top all boats arising as a matter fact is we are recording this week Jan for the very first time.

90% of Americans are going to see an increase in take-home pay.

Beginning this week.

I'm in a repeat that 90% of Americans those who aren't seeing the increase are the top of the top those people are doing pretty well. They're not going to see any increase but the bottom 90% of Americans which means just about everybody is going to see an increase and what all that means is they'll be more growth, more jobs, more pay incentives Simon, you've seen that work whether it's Walmart or Apple or Home Depot corporations all over America literally millions of Americans are getting $1000 bonus as well as their seeing increased amounts of money in their paycheck because of tax cuts and also the standard deduction is doubling your listening to understanding the times radio and Jan Markel heaven studio familiar voice of Michele Bachmann and will talk about what God has called her to hear the present and future just a little bit. I want to play soundbite.

I want my audience to better understand what's known as the deep state what's known as the swamp and I want to play soundbite of Monica Crowley and come back and talk to you about what we've just heard the swamp. The swamp is the swamp is the only class that is comprised of the lease on all sides of the political spectrum is dominated is taken for granted.

Why is it always dominated despite seated at times patriots over many years to try to chip away at its monstrous power for short answer is that this swamp controls all the levers of power in this country.

The capability will to destroy anyone anything that threatens its graph is the perfect embodiment of Lord Acton warning that power tends to corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Many other outages that we can apply to this. This epic cesspool of money, power, status, and influence all contributing to the supreme human and institutional corruption that we see in Washington DC.

It's everywhere taunting. It is a tsunami that comes and crushes anybody in his path, its elected officials on both sides, the establishment on both sides. Their staff meeting on bureaucracies, special interests, lobbyists, even some in the deep state were supposed to only be focused on America's external threats, and even some in law and long cement only supposed to be interested in applying justice under the law.

They've all become corrupted. This ruling classes timed out on this rotten status quo for a long time until now because finally finally this country has selected someone not of, by, and for the swamp. Someone knows that nothing does not fear them. Bachmann don't you think that sort of summarizes what happened in Washington in the last year. Oh yes, Monica Crowley has nailed it because the problem is these are civil servants and they are insubordinate to what the voters have elected the voters elected Donald Trump to get rid of Obama care into a number of things and those who are protected by the unions their public servant supposedly but their union makes them virtually non-fireball doesn't matter what they do. We've all heard the story about people in the EPA. For instance, who would come to work and it's gross, but they'd sit in front of their computer and watch porn all day and you can't fire those people. I mean it's it's on believable the way the system is set up so these people don't care they don't care who their bosses. They don't care who the president is if there a committed leftist.

They see that there their whole job is to make sure that they turn the country toward socialism that is corrupt. How much of the pushback how much of what Monica just talked about and she was very clear that it's both sides of the island is young Republicans, Democrats, and how much do Obama holdovers play into this tremendous I mean dear.

They are protected for life.

And so in some ways I've mentioned to you, Valerie Jarrett, who is the senior advisor for Pres. Obama. In some ways I think that she still is running the country in areas where she can because the influence that she or other people in the Obama administration are just leftist.

In general, they still communicate with people who have jobs that are paid for by your tax dollars but they can't be fired so there insubordinate to the present United States and will probably get into this later, but with this whole issue of Israel once Pres. Obama did the ultimate disruption and designate Jerusalem as Israel's capital and take that phony issue off the table at the State Department.

They were so outraged by what Donald Trump did that they were even asked by reporters well. How is this going to change the State Department if someone is born in Jerusalem will you write out a birth certificate.

Jerusalem, Israel. No were not gonna do that how it on passports, will you now put on US passports. Jerusalem, Israel, no vernacular do that. In fact, the deep state said to the reporters nothings changed everything change the present United States has the authority to make that designation. And yet these in subordinates at this State Department have decided hey where the president were in charge, not you. So that's exactly the problem that Monica Crowley's describing it out. I think Americans at this point there weary of this endless mantra of Russian they should be smarter than the medias of an exemplary NAC through one bit of evidence is been like a year and 1/2 yet. There's nothing there. I mean, but it seems to point to Simon corruption again in high places, etc. I find myself Michele.

I can hardly turn the news on anymore because I know the first story is going to be about dossiers and corruption. If you turn on CNN well sick thing out of sorts. I watch that is not dated night flight cannot already get a creative thought, yeah, I know so. But that's infected almost all ranches immediate is some truth, still online, but it had to go searching for you and I know where to go and a lot of people don't know where to go so they get back to this deep state thing again and again. I think Americans are sick and tired of it. But even the corruption within the FBI.

I mean it's shocking. It's disappointing wasn't shocking as this really should take people's breath away when I was in Congress. This is what I saw under the Obama administration was the corruption of the Department of Justice. It specifically the FBI and other departments as well.

But just think about it. That's really the benefit that the United States had for years and years we observe the rule of law and all people are to be treated equally under the rule of law were not a perfect country.

It hasn't happened perfectly. Have there been like racial issues were people have been treated differently because the color of their skin. Absolutely that's happened that's an injustice that has to be rectified, but never have we seen the level of corruption at that we saw under the Obama department of justice and in the FBI and now are finding out because now these text messages are showing to show that if people who are were working hand-in-hand with with Barack Obama. Now get this. The FBI was trying to defeat Donald Trump as president as a candidate when he was running and so they made up this fake phony story.

They tried to pretend that Trump was colluding with Russians to throw the election when there's no evidence, and even the FBI agents between themselves and their text messages were saying there is no there there. In other words, there isn't anything there's nothing for us to prosecute and yet that didn't even stop the FBI they went ahead and used phony made up charges Hillary Clinton paid $12 million for a fake story that was made up to pretend that there is collusion with the Russians. She paid $12 million and that take. They called it dossier is a memo that fake memo apparently was the basis for a judge to give all warrants so the Obama administration could go spy and listen in to the phone conversations of Donald Trump. So when Donald Trump and his people and his team when Donald Trump said I'm being spied on, he was absolutely telling the truth now we know that it's true. This is against the law is against the law for the FBI to do domestic spying and they had a fake reason to give to a judge, that judge should be outraged that he was given phony evidence that all illegal and I'll tell you Barack Obama is the one who should be investigated and right now he whoever ordered this fake investigation should be in jail for doing what they did and now were hearing talk of some secret society in Maine. This gives images of a cabal meeting in a dark smoke-filled room somewhere.

Could this be possible.

And that's terminology that the left use that's their terminology and what they were doing is they were colluding.

They colluded with the Russians like they were accusing Donald Trump of doing Hillary Clinton. Her campaign team.

Her legal team. They were they were misusing the instrumentalities of government to defeat a political opponent. What does that say about the lack of confidence they had their own candidate Hillary Clinton.

They didn't think that she could win legally on her own, so they had to have what they called quote insurance policies to take down the opposition candidate Donald Trump.

This stinks to high heaven.

That's the so-called deep state and these are people who are protected because their government employees and their protected by their unions and they can virtually never be fired and that's why I think this is a serious issue and I mean everybody believes you should have decent wages and benefits and all that it is about that but I'm telling you these public employee unions have gone so far that people can act against the best interest of the taxpayers.

They can even break the law and still they have jobs. That's gotta stop when I get back I want to talk to you for a few minutes about Davo's was couple weeks ago now, but you talk about a globalist paradise over in Switzerland at Davo's and Donald Trump again. Hannah broke the mold when I get back we'll talk about that. Michele Bachmann in studio with me and focuses is going to be a two-part series.

I highly encourage you to listen to Jim work will on a frequent basis that the news media should do a training expose and take a lot. I wish they will.

United times were you listening to part one of a two-part conversation with Michelle Bachmann know you enjoyed the discussion.

So let's return now to John Martel and former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, so they're trying to turn this into Watergate or Iran Contra or whatever it is, because that's what Democrats and liberals do what they're really trying to do as I've told you Damien and day out from day one. This is a silent coup with her was he like college in the popular vote whether it's blocking his cabinet appointees. Whatever it is. This is a silent coup by silent coup. I mean, no, no gunfire or anything of the sort.

But that's exactly what's taking place. It is a silent coup. I've been saying that since the beginning was presidency again challenging the legitimacy of electoral college violence in the streets. Violence on Inauguration Day unleashing these investigative committees almost out of the starting blocks Sumer and others demanding a special counsel on Russian collusion. Obviously there's no rush in collusion during the course the election with the Trump campaign because of been no charges that affect no crimes related to that have been charged and welcome back and again this program is always posted to my website Saturday morning olive tree you can go on over to one Listen online there as well and get their mobile app and the program will be automatically downloaded to your app every Saturday morning, get a CD. I recommend you get a CD of these couple of weeks with Michelle Bachmann and hand them out to friends and family and coworkers who just don't have any access to the kind of truth that we hope to be sharing now. I gave a tease in my last segment that I wanted to head over to Davo's Davo's the story is now couple weeks old, but what a story it was at that time, Davo says the economic conference that's held every year in Switzerland and Michelle Bachmann. It is a paradise for globalists and again Donald Trump was the troublemaker he informed everybody there that America is open for business.

He let it be known that he Donald Trump is not a part of the globalist gang. He is a part of the America first. Well, he's the leader of it anyway and I'm sure you are watching that story as it was happening not too long ago was marvelous to see that because as we know with the example of the European Union. There is an effort to pull together all of the European countries in 01 economic system. Once you have of one economic system. Then you have to have an one political system to govern that economic system. That's all.

Davo says it's an effort to have a one world economic system and once that happens then by virtue of the fact of chaos. You have to bring order to chaos.

You have to have a one world political system so were all being conditioned and manipulated to accept a 1 World Economic System Tunl.

Trump went over there as president United States and said America's open for business.

We've lowered our taxes we order in regulatory burden and everybody, and invested where interested in America. You can play all your games here with one world economy that you want to but working to move forward with a capitalist free market system and work out a roar. It was just great. He came in as the ultimate disrupter to this one worldview Namic system and he gave exactly the right message and Franklin Graham opened up this entire program with an appeal to route to pray for president Trump and VP Pentz to when you start messing around with the globalists is Donald Trump is done. I fear for his life. I really do what that's why we have to remember to continually pray for president because there are people who are so unhinged and so irrational will do anything to remove Donald Trump from office. Why, because he is not going down the globalist one world government system. The system that is communist and socialist in abiding by those principles. He's very different. He leaves in the traditional system of the American constitutional Republic, which is refreshing. Thank God that he does you had two clips here that you played so far today, one from Franklin Graham one from radio host Mark Levin.

Both of them talked about this issue of a cool restaurant cool drink.

I think it's important that your listeners know what that means that the political term and a cool means someone illegally removes the current government from office outside of the electoral process. That's what effectively what were talking about by lies in the media. You and I talked about this chant. The fact that your listeners are being played right now the American people are being played by that I mean were being manipulated by that nonstop the engine of the lies in the media about Donald Trump what he did or didn't do during the campaign what's happening in government right now. There absolutely unhinged and after a while people just want to live in peace reign they tune it out.

They can't take all of this nonstop hatred. Hatred. Hatred, they don't know what to think but what we need to realize is that you know is I had said before about 95% of what you hear in the media is negative about Trump and yet if you look at the statistics as you also referenced from the heritage foundation. His report card reading after one year in office is out of control with how the economy is improving growth like we haven't seen in over eight years, 45% increase in the Dow Jones industrial average people's wages.

90% of wages are going up.

Donald Trump has done more to advance the pro-life cause than any other president ever. He has done more to advance religious liberty for all Americans than any president ever. He has designated Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. That's extremely important. He's the first leader in the world to do that and he was followed by Pres. Morales of Guatemala, the only two countries in the world to do that. Why is that significant for believers because Donald Trump has put our country the United States of America in a position of blessing. According to Genesis 12. Three. We will be blessed. That is a promise of God Almighty and for all of these globalists who wanted to bring America down because they want America to calm down so will be like all the other countries of the world so they can advance one world economies and one world government that can happen when you have a strong free America and Donald Trump is taking us in the direction of a strong free secure America post something that isn't pleasing his base. Holland, and I'm not sure we know exactly how it's going to play out and that would be the situation as it that stands for deferred action for childhood arrivals limit just read couple lines. Gary Bauer wrote recently about the deferred action for childhood arrivals or Dhaka, the White House put an immigration reform deal on the table.

At first glance, it includes many ideas that polled well in recent Harvard survey help for Dhaka recipients and of the diversity Visa lottery as well as a $25 billion scheduled for serious border security measures are over. The White House describes as an extraordinarily generous concession.

The plan goes well beyond the Dhaka recipients, which presents many additional concerns the left is outraged because it it does not want to limit immigration anyway. It does not want to end chain migration. It does not want to secure borders. The left wants open borders it wants, millions of future progressive voters to pour into the country legally or otherwise, and then Bauer concludes progressive see illegal immigrants as dreamers while they castigate American citizens as deplorable. Now when Donald Trump ran for office. All of 2016. One of his big promises. Of course, was a wall, etc. immigration was huge and all the things he promised and yet apparently he's going to cave when it comes to the deferred action for childhood arrivals of mice known as Dhaka. We've got Breitbart and Coulter and others saying were being betrayed your take on this please. Why don't like what I'm reading, either because it looks like Donald Trump is going to hundred 80 opposite of what he said during the course of the campaign, but one thing we have seen with Donald Trump is, he will say one thing they'll say something about the opposite.

Then he'll whip us back to what he said originally and this is just for the last year. This is what we see in this is he's contributed in part to this instability, but it may be all a part of his negotiation. Now I don't know but I do know it's weird because the number one thing that people cared about when he ran brought the right is a matter fact it was his opening speech when he ran he talked about the problems of illegal immigration and they are real illegal immigrants are extraordinarily expensive to the taxpayers the eyestrain they cost us a lot of money because they require a lot of government services far more than what they pay in in taxes and a lot of crime has also come along with illegals, not all but a lot of crime has.

That's a whole new box of issues staff to deal with, but where does Donald trump land on this. Nobody really knows. I think what we have seen with Donald Trump what he originally says he ultimately delivered and so I'm going to do a first Corinthians 13 and ultimately believe the best here that that's where the direction that he is going to go because the biggest problem that the American people have is they're concerned about our border. The fact that illegals continue to pour in. We had more amnesties in our past. Every time we have an amnesty more illegals pour across the borders we have more problems so this doesn't solve anything to have an amnesty so I'm not sure where it's going to end up.

And you know people are really mad what Tucker Carlson weighed on this.

I think he said it.

Rather, I think appropriately. Amnesty for Dhaka recipients is the only leverage the White House house was the president agrees to jump to the head of the line ahead of millions of other people hoping to come here legally. The negotiation is over that point, why would Democrats agree to anything ending chain migration. The diversity lottery supporting a merit-based system that might actually help America no chance Democrats goal is to import more Democratic voters and by any means necessary. Once the retake the Congress and the presidency, and if Trump betrays his base immigration that will definitely happen is over signal by the borders they are done. Keep in mind that the top Democrat in the house recently thanked illegal aliens for sneaking into this country that some Democrats feel and are not pretending anymore. Being a Trump folder isn't always easy.

It's like rooting for the underdog in baseball built Chicago Cubs on one level, there is pride. The pride that comes from doing something that fashionable people consider insane, but there's also some disappointment along the way.

And honestly there's some embarrassment but you silently bear it because you know that when they finally win the World Series. It'll be worth everything you went through sarcastic dig from your brother-in-law at Thanksgiving will seem small by comparison presidency, the World Series is this immigration bill is the big payoff. The whole point of the exercise are not allowed to blow it though Tucker summed it up fairly well beautifully yeah because truly the number one issue is the political party, the Democrats they want to be in power. That's it.

Number one, and they realize that the average American voter will not keep the Democrats in power because the average American voter doesn't want redistribution of wealth. They want to have growth and opportunity.

So what do they do they import voters from socialist countries who will vote for socialism.

So this is all about and impenetrable voting block or the Democrats so they will be in power because ultimately their lazy they don't want to have to campaign to win elections and so they want a voting base that they can count on and I'll take it stunning. If you look at the polling data of people who pour in from Third World countries what their voting records are for multiple generations. They are consistently voting for the Liberal party.

Why because they come from socialist countries. They are dependent upon government services and they want more of them. So if we want to be Venezuela. Then you import more Venezuelans.

Ray will turn to more socialism and it's clearly this is a taxpayer subsidized voter registration drive for the Democrat party.

Bottom line, that's what it is. Trust me, if these were pro-life Israel loving religious freedom loving Republicans were pouring in south of the border. They would be down there with the bricks in the trials and they would be building the wall because they wouldn't want Republican voters in this is simply about gaining Democrat power and having voters to keep them in power. You're listening to understanding the times radio and Jim Markel have in the studio. Michelle Bachmann and talking to her will would be doing a two-part series this week as part one and talking little bit about the dysfunction in Washington, but I got many more topics up ahead here to hit did we talked little bit about Davo's but we want to talk about Mike pence in Israel and some other issues and I also want to get to the fact that show that Hawaii had a false alarm scare about a potential nuclear missile attack on ask you little bit about national security. But first, many were hoping, praying, encouraging you to run for Sen. Al Franken seat and you've decided not to, that you're not going to go back into the swamp.

While I'm not going to run for that office. You're right. I had a lot of people contacting me people wanting to give me money and be a part of my team to run for campaign and this would've immediately overnight turned into a national election.

It would been a big deal. But what I did is I did what I've done on every other time I thought about running. I just took it to the Lord in a very quiet way. I took up before the Lord. I prayed. I tried to have my ears open and hear what God was saying to me, and I considered it for quite a long time. From the very first day, when Al Al Franken had announced his resignation from the U.S. Senate.

I went before the Lord and it became very clear to me that I wasn't hearing any call from God to do this and every time I've run for office before. I've always prayed, because it's a significant impact personally and on my family and I've always hurried and tried to seek out what God's will for me would be in each time before I've had this inner sense that I'm supposed to do this. I'm supposed to run it doesn't mean a guarantee that I'll win, but it all it means is that that's what I sensed in my spirit that God wanted me to run I had absolutely no sense from the Lord at all that I was supposed to run this time. So it wasn't like you know a big desire of my heart that I would run right wouldn't run personally, I just had no sense from the Lord that this is something that I should do right now so I'm not going to do it.

This would be a very big undertaking to run for this office and I would be delighted and happy to do it if I felt like that's what God was calling me to do. I just don't have a sense and without that censoring I can't do it so very thankful very happy very thankful I'm not upset well in any way about it not running or running, it really is immaterial. I just don't have a sense that that's God's will for my will and we need to talk a little bit about what you are doing and we will do that before the this two-part series is over because you are kind of entrenched its United Nations with some rather incredible stories that you share with me personally will get there because we got a two-part series going on. Folks encourage you to get a couple of CDs and pass them on to people you care about who don't have access to the truth and you give my office a call anytime will get a couple CDs out to you and you need to wait for part two next weekend to finish and then will have those CDs. Michelle was one of my speakers at understanding the times 2015 and 2017 with complete sets of CDs or DVDs available from those activities as well. When I get back. Michelle want to ask you about a couple of things I want to share an article that was in Newsweek magazine in the headline of this particular article is trump will start the end of the world claim. Evangelicals who support him and that's kinda how we are pegged as wild eyed, crazy people who are literally going to bring about the end of the world which quite frankly is probably okay with us because that means the rapture in the hope of heaven, but obviously Newsweek doesn't understand that but I want to get into that, I went to take a real short timeout want to get back in clinic read a paragraph from this incredible article, get your perspective on it and says for his evangelical supporters. There is a sense that trumps unlikely election to the presidency proves that he was chosen by God. Well, that's how I opened the program as Franklin Graham said clearly he was chosen by God.

Anybody who watched on election night over a year ago now could only walk away with that kind of an impression so we'll talk about it when we get back folks don't go away.

His positions on Israel were great.

All of these various positions and is delivered on the left is going crazy right now because there's so much success coming out of the trump administration. They have to bring up all these lies so that people will turn their back listening to understanding the times radio roof over conversation with Michelle Bachmann again.

I gave a tease and that last segment that Newsweek magazine had a feature story with headlines as tall as you can imagine that Trump will start the end of the world claim.

Evangelicals who support him.

Well I have a fellow evangelical in studio with me for this week and next week Michelle Bachmann and you well aware of her history.

She started out in Minnesota state politics moved on to US House of Representatives, representing Minnesota's sixth district and then ran for president in 2012 and up Michelle. I do want to make reference to this Newsweek story that Trump will start the end of the world claim. Evangelicals who support him and to paragraphs from this article. Evangelical Christians overwhelmingly support Donald Trump because they believe he'll cause the world to end at many evangelical Christians believe that Trump was chosen by God. That's I opened the program Franklin Graham to usher in a new era a part of history called the end times well as a side note, he doesn't assure the end times and they been around for quite some time. Beliefs about this time. Different says Newsweek, but it is broadly considered the end of the world, the time when Jesus returns to earth and judges all people but evangelical Christians through their full weight behind the decision. Currently, over half of all American evangelicals support Trump's presidency, they also support the announcement about Jerusalem and that then it goes on to say most evangelicals subscribe to premillennialism, actually not. Most because of the belief in millennialism and then they conclude for his evangelical supporters. There is a sense that trumps unlikely election to the presidency proves he has been chosen by God. Again, this is all Newsweek.

He shouldn't have won the election, so the thinking goes, so the fact that he did and the victory that came only via the electoral College, no less just demonstrates that only God could make it happen. Michelle you and I have talked about this election. We talked about it right after the election of November 2016 and what happened was a God thing, but another perspective here and that is he's going to bring about the end times well wish we had that kind of power and authority. But you and I don't have it will how arrogant and really how important does Newsweek think that believers are no God who controls the times and the app box.

We cannot delay nor can we advance his timetable. This is God's timetable.

We agree that it the book of Daniel says that it is the most high God, who lifts up who he will to positions of authority and takes them down so we prayed. Of course we wanted to have someone in who would represent biblical values, even if in his personal life he lives a certain way and I think that I am extremely grateful that Donald Trump one. I don't know one person that I have talked to who is a committed born-again believer in Jesus Christ, who is said to me, I want Donald Trump to win because he's going to bring about the end of days.

There is no one who has said that only God has his timetable and his calendar.

The reason why want Donald Trump in offices because he would be good for the economy.

His positions on Israel were great and all of these various positions and he's delivered on the left is going crazy right now because there's so much success coming out of the trump administration. They have to bring up all these lies so the people will turn their back on well stated and I want to hit one more topic here in this short segment we have folks were to continue this next weekend and you and I both Michelle Bachmann heavy burden for a subset of people on this planet persecuted Christians and I am just delighted that in the last year, actually more Christians who are fleeing the Middle East are coming in as immigrants, then Muslims you and I live in what's known as little Mogadishu Minnesota here. Lots of tamales here, but do you think it is it possible it in your particular with United Nations role in all you are able to get a better pulse on this that I have missed it too late for Middle East Christians in Maine again. More coming into America than Muslims right now. Is it possible that it's not too late for them. Well it's not too late for them it's just matter where they going to live.

Christians have been chased out of the Middle East. It it's very very difficult if not impossible to be a Christian and Pakistan friends in to be persecuted would be mild to be killed is more likely what's going to happen and that's what we've seen with the rise of Islam, rather than being seen as a quote religion of peace in their backyard.

In those Muslim countries. They have literally chased out, persecuted, killed, and subdued Christians in those areas when it comes to juice its worse Jews are been derailed and they been driven out so there's no Jewish presence in many of the 57 Arab nations that are over there so then, rather than displaying tolerance and inability to get along just the opposite is happened.

It's been pushing out Jews killing them. But then now it's pushing out Christianity. So think of this, the birthplace of Judaism and the birthplace of Christianity, we are seeing people who follow Islam pushing those other two face out. It's a very ugly place for Christians right now in the Middle East.

Thank God there being allowed for the first time to come into the United States in a big way because under Barack Obama's era he was bringing Muslims perpetrators into the United States and those who are the victims Christians were being forced to remain in these countries were there persecuted. In some cases Kelton I think get another air he of intrigue here in this first year is been how the current administration has dealt with the media. I want play click shy law that I know I know I do to. I want to play quick sound by John Bolton is actually attacking or attempting to talk sense to the leftist media. This happens to be about the Iran deal if we don't have time to talk about at this hour. This program, we will next week because the Iranian deal is significant. It could go away, but I just wanted folks to hear someone who's tackling the media and kinda throwing it back in their face will come back to your comments on a little bit a little bit more directly. I think what you said is offensive and inappropriate.

You are a munchkin in the media and that you may have your opinions but I think your job is to try and present news accurately and not editorialize if you'd like to tell me where you think the president has behaved in a way disagree with let's have an example of it and I'd be happy to deal with what he particularly talking about talking about what's happening with said the president slips you said the president slips in and out of deals, what, what's your problem. Specifically, my problem but specifically and if that I was talking about. I think he wants to get all the deal that the United States is down as far as Iran is concerned there's nothing slippery there's nothing slippery about that. It's entirely appropriate when a country realizes it's made a strategic mistake or circumstances changed to get out of an international agreement. I can give you any number of examples president George W. Bush.

For example, quite correctly took the United States out of the 1972 anti-ballistic missile treaty so that we could have a national missile defense capability to protect against the likes of Iran and North Korea. That's not slippery that's operating in the national interest you think Britain is slippery for getting out of the European Union. Maybe you should call your whole country slippery average is my point with you to make very clear is that I think I think your unprofessional comments were uncalled for and maybe maybe you think that's your business. Now perhaps you let me finish this Dottie. I just don't think it advances thank you.

I don't think it advances the cause of informing your listeners shall Bachmann. I wish Donald Trump would take Amb. Bolton into his administration.

You think there's a possibility of that happening. I think all of us have. I love John Bolton. I've known him for years.

I think he would make a tremendous Secretary of State. You'd make a tremendous head of the national security agency, and I'd love to see them in any of those positions he's he was our former ambassador, the United nation.

He did a great job when he was the ambassador and I think he handled himself very well when you see when you see the media going to the point of advocacy for the left nonstop and 90 dive percent of all of their questions are hostility to the trump administration.

You have to push back so he handled that very well remember with the Iran agreement. It least president Trump wants to act in the best interest of America and America's national security. That isn't what Barack Obama did as president of the United States. He has hurt American national security.

Shouldn't that be something that the media should be devastated about the fact that our national security was impaired under the hand of Barack Obama. Now we finally have a president who cares about America wants to strengthen our interest that the good thing and it's time that we push back. And I think munchkin is good word. These are pipsqueak's in the media and we cannot allow them to be elevated as if they are important were going to continue this conversation next weekend, folks. Michelle Bachmann will be back, and we've got a lot of topics that we haven't hit yet matter-of-fact Michelle Mike pence was recently in Israel. An incredible experience over there. It was a great speech that he gave Enya before we go. Just in case people can't listen next week. If people wonder how they can get in touch with me when I am in the UN in a position of trying to bring a biblical perspective to the UN people can find so the word's guideline as it sounds UN as the skyline all my contact information is there and I would love to have you on our prayer team were audacious in what our goal is to bring a biblical perspective to the UN. We trust in our believing God that he is going to bring the gospel to the nations, and we want all of your listeners to join us to be prayer partners with us in this endeavor were very excited about God's doing.
