Donald Trump has accidentally told an audience of global religious leaders that America’s greatest accomplishments include the “abolition of civil rights” during the National Prayer Breakfast.

“Since the founding of our nation, many of our greatest strides, from gaining our independence to abolition of civil rights, to extending the vote for women, have been led by people of faith and started in prayer,” the president said on Thursday. “When we open our hearts to faith we fill our hearts with love.”

The president attended the breakfast in Washington, where speakers addressed the level of division in the country and what one described as a “fracturing of the American family”.

I think this is less an accident and more wishful thinking on Trump’s part.

I am sure that he would love it if civil rights were abolished in this country because then those uppity brown folks would not keep acting as if they were his equal. 

Trump also gave a shout out to Mike Pence’s wife for taking a teaching job at a Christian school with a strict anti-LGBTQ policy. 

So yeah the entire breakfast was all about unity. 

You know if you were a straight white Christian Republican that is.

    Trump insanely believes that when he tweets something it becomes true.
    tinydjt tweet>…It is all a GIANT AND ILLEGAL HOAX, developed long before the election itself, but used as an excuse by the Democrats as to why Crooked Hillary Clinton lost the Election! Someday the Fake News Media will turn honest & report that Donald J. Trump was actually a GREAT Candidate!

    “Deutsch also explained that all the investigations into Trump and his family’s business and political activities could be tied together under one RICO investigation to make it easier to indict and convict the president and his children.

    “This broad investigation would bring in everything from the Trump Foundation to Trump University,” Deutsch said, then he added:

    “You can bring back cases that have even been settled civilly, to money laundering, and you will see, I believe, and what you can also do with RICO, is you can seize assets.””

      “According to reports, the subpoena indicates that prosecutors are investigating conspiracy against the United States, false statements, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and violations of campaign finance and inaugural committee laws. In addition, CNN has reported that federal prosecutors in Manhattan have expressed interest in interviewing executives from the Trump Organization.”
      “makes it a crime for any person associated with an enterprise to participate, directly or indirectly, in the conduct of the enterprise’s affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity. Pattern of racketeering activity is defined as two or more acts from a list of criminal offenses, such as mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering, some of the very same crimes that SDNY prosecutors are reportedly now investigating. The penalties for violating RICO are heavy–up to 20 years in prison and forfeiture of the proceeds of the racketeering activity.”

      I’d love to see RICO laws sink Don the Con’s ship of foolish of foolish sons, son-in-law and daughter. But I also want him outed on trial for conspiracy to rig an election, collusion with a foreign power to rig an American election, and outright treason.

        RICO charges are weak shit and totally unnecessary compared to all the heavy duty charges (conspiracy, false statements, bank fraud, bribery, forgery, money laundering etc ) these idiots are about to be indicted for.

        Example: Four guys decide to burglarize an empty house. One perp has a gun (and the other three didn’t even know he owned a gun much less that he had it with him when doing the burglary), and when the homeowner shows up unexpectedly the Second Amendment perp shoots and kills the homeowner. How many of the four burglars will be charged with a crime related to the death of the homeowner? Answer- all four.

        This is why Herr Furor is running skeered lately.

      “In creating psychoanalysis, Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference, establishing its central role in the analytic process. Freud’s redefinition of sexuality to include its infantile forms led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as the central tenet of psychoanalytical theory. His analysis of dreams as wish-fulfillments provided him with models for the clinical analysis of symptom formation and the underlying mechanisms of repression. On this basis Freud elaborated his theory of the unconscious and went on to develop a model of psychic structure comprising id, ego and super-ego Freud postulated the existence of libido, a sexualised energy with which mental processes and structures are invested and which generates erotic attachments, and a death drive, the source of compulsive repetition, hate, aggression and neurotic guilt. In his later works, Freud developed a wide-ranging interpretation and critique of religion and culture.Though in overall decline as a diagnostic and clinical practice, psychoanalysis remains influential within psychology, psychiatry, and psychotherapy, and across the humanities. It thus continues to generate extensive and highly contested debate with regard to its therapeutic efficacy, its scientific status, and whether it advances or is detrimental to the feminist cause. Nonetheless, Freud’s work has suffused contemporary Western thought and popular culture. In the words of W.H. Auden’s 1940 poetic tribute, by the time of Freud’s death, he had become
      “a whole climate of opinion / under whom we conduct our different lives.”

      “Religious liberty” is a $ham. “the i$$ue>
      ” is whether a Muslim inmate is entitled to be treated exactly the same way as a Christian while that inmate is being executed.”
      “Ray is a death row inmate, and there is no doubt that the state of Alabama may execute him. The only issue in this case was whether Ray, who is Muslim, may be killed with his imam at his side. Moreover, as Justice Elena Kagan notes in a dissenting opinion, “a Christian prisoner may have a minister of his own faith accompany him into the execution chamber to say his last rites” under the prison’s policy. So if Ray were a Christian, he would have his spiritual adviser present.”

    “To make explicit what the special counsel’s office is saying here: Manafort’s meeting with a man with ties to Russian intelligence during the heat of the 2016 campaign is at “the heart” of the Russia investigation. The meeting is important to the special counsel. And the special counsel thinks that these facts give Manafort a motive to lie about it — suggesting he’s covering up incriminating behavior.”
    “At another point in the transcript, a prosecutor tells the judge that one of Manafort’s motives for lying to investigators about something he told to Rick Gates, another former Trump aide who is cooperating in the probe, was that he was trying to “augment his chances for a pardon.” (NBC News noted that the transcript appears to incorrectly attribute this remark to one of Manafort’s lawyers, when it is, in fact, clearly a prosecutor speaking.)

    This is the first time the special counsel has indicated publicly that it thinks a witness or target in the investigation might be angling for a pardon.”
    ” It means the special counsel believes Manafort could increase his chances of a pardon by with a criminal lie. This, quite directly, implies that Trump has an interest in one of his former aides engaging in a criminal cover-up — a circumstance that is hard to imagine unless the president himself is at least indirectly implicated in criminal behavior.” “After Manafort had agreed to cooperate, Rudy Giuliani, the president’s lawyer, revealed that the ex-campaign chair had stayed in his joint defense agreement with the president, a situation legal experts said was extraordinary and posed the risk that he could innappropriately share sensitive information.”

    Well the people of faith, especially Evangelicals are working to abolish our civil rights. If he slipped up, what was the word suppose to be? Not slavery, doesn’t sound at all like our civil rights.

    OT/ ““There was a sense of people realising, ‘Who are these cranks?’”
    Kirk, with his business partner, Candace Owens, is a rising star on the American conservative scene — a smooth-talking, telegenic salesperson pitching Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda to a young audience. Now he has radical ambitions to import its confrontational brand of activism to the UK.”
    “With a provocative pitch about liberating universities from the left, the launch attracted widespread publicity. Several prominent politicians on the British right endorsed the group, including Nigel Farage, Priti Patel, and Jacob Rees-Mogg. But there was also pushback: Labour MP David Lammy tweeted that Tories who were endorsing Turning Point were openly promoting “hard right, xenophobic bile”. Conservative party headquarters sent an instruction to its members
    “not to work with them in any capacity”.”

    “U.S. President Donald Trump’s physician on Friday declared the president “in very good health” after four hours of examination at Walter Reed military hospital, a statement said.

    “While the reports and recommendations are being finalized, I am happy to announce the president of the United States is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his presidency, and beyond,” said White House physician Sean Conley.”<rawstory

    “Under Justice Kavanaugh’s logic, Louisiana could pass a new law requiring abortion doctors to wear polka dotted shirts with striped ties and clown shoes. After all, as long as they can get the clothes, where’s the undue burden? Never mind that they look like clowns and that there’s no reason for the law to exist in the first place.

    By construing “undue burden” only as applied to specific doctors (and thus women), Justice Kavanaugh’s logic would allow all kinds of pointless regulations, as long as doctors could somehow comply with them.”

    ““Republicans lost significant ground among everyone except Mr. Trump’s core base of rural, evangelical and ‘noncollege’ supporters (and even among them, the Republican margin shrank a bit),” they continued. “Mr. Trump’s hard-core base is large enough to dominate the Republican Party, at least for now, but it is not large enough to dominate the country. In the long run, a third or so of the country cannot effectively govern the other two-thirds with an unpopular agenda and a Twitter account. “”

    ““I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”

    Paula White, a money-grubbing prosperity preacher, also backs this view. (White also lives in one of Trump’s penthouses and is referred to as his “spiritual adviser.”)

    She also praised all the things Trump has done for the Christian community.

    “In fact, the President’s extraordinary commitment to religious liberty has been obvious since the very beginning of his presidency — just two weeks after his inauguration, Donald Trump attended the National Prayer Breakfast where he stressed the importance of preserving and cherishing religious values. The President is expected to be with us in prayer at this year’s breakfast on Thursday,” ”

    “the Department of Health and Human Services established a Conscience and Religious Freedom Division tasked with enforcing laws that protect religious rights.

    President Trump expanded on that effort last May by creating the “White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative,” which convenes the leaders of America’s religious communities to advise the administration on faith-related matters and strategies to “reduce the burdens on the exercise of free religion.””
    ” Trump has been a beacon of hope for America’s religious communities after eight years of darkness. Liberals may mock people of faith who believe he was chosen to protect their values, but I believe Donald Trump is fulfilling his pledges and I pray he will continue to lead with divine guidance.”
