This article conveys the brilliance of our Founding Fathers when they established the Electoral College –
MORE ACCURATE PERSPECTIVE
Here are the facts:
Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her
19 and DC. 62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.
Hillary won California 8,753,788 to Trump’s 4,483,810. 61.6% to
33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California gave Hillary the
popular vote for all states as claimed
by the Democrats and their media stooges.
But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783,
and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.
So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected
president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote
of any one populace state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised
her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.
This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.
At its lowest point since the civil war! Could this mean the end of the Democrat Party? When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have:
1) The Presidency.
2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
3) A majority of the Senate.
4) Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states. And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6) A majority of the Supreme Court. The above has never happened before in American history.
Think about that and let it sink in for a moment. And it’s all because of one reason: Barack
Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats. It’s important to pass this on. With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended.

We observe this phenomena becoming more plainer with each new presidential election. Our nation is polarized right down the middle. We can even see the regional dichotomy between the Red States and Blue States. The Red States are the interior and heartland of our country. The Blue States consist of the large populated cities and coastal states. These areas present two different, divergent and opposing world views. Let us examine each. The following observations are by no means conclusive, and a mere thumb nail sketch by the blog author. I am sure you could add more examples to this article:
Blue States: The recent mantra at their demonstrations is “Black lives matter.” A heavy handed, government is desired, with high taxation for the middle class in order to underwrite expenses. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the concept of “Global Warming” are promoted, and the ramifications of them produce an endless sea of ridiculous taxes, red tape and bureaucracy. Sanctuary cities are desired in order to protect the “rights” of illegals and criminals. Abortion is not a problem, and a viable option for anyone who desires one. Our nations’ borders should be wide open and allow anyone to enter at will. This mindset also reveals a receptivity to the New World Order (NWO). Illegals are welcome, and should be supported through our tax dollars. American distinctives and the Judeo Christian ethic upon which our nation was built, are not held in high regard in the least. Our countries’ Constitution is a fluid document and can be ignored and/or modified. Patriotism offends many, especially minorities, and the American flag can be burned and trampled upon. The American flag is not displayed at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) until someone complains. At the DNC, they even vote on whether or not to pray! Instead of our immigrants learning our culture, language and way of life, we are suppose to cater to their every whim and desire. Anyone who fears the heavy infiltration of Muslims and their Sharia Law, is labeled Islamophobic. If you believe that homosexuality is a sinful lifestyle and repudiated in the Bible, then you are homophobic. Guns are evil and no one should be permitted to own one. Our public restrooms should be open to transvestites, and every other form of sexual perversion. Gays and lesbians should be permitted to marry. Moral values, and determining right from wrong may differ from person to person. There are no moral absolutes. President Obama is attempting to employ lesbian farmers throughout our nation. He is doing this in order to break up rural conservatives. Note how these values go against our nation’s foundation beliefs that espouse God and Country. There is no desire to seek harmony in our country following the elections. There is an anger expressed towards those who disagree with them, going so far as attempting to overturn the election results. The Left broke windows, led in riots, overturns cars, etc., after losing the election. Celebrities threatened to leave the country if their candidate lost the election (they all cried wolf and stayed). Also noteworthy was the post election “sore loser” infantile behavior of the left wing weenie brigade, featuring cuddling with puppies, drinking hot cocoa, lying on the pavement in the fetal position, group screams at Yale University, as well as a wide variety of other reprehensible deeds whose actions were reminiscent of those we use to call brats. In the You Tube below, you can see their leader setting the tone for immature meltdowns:
HILLARY CRYING UNCONTROLLABLY ALL NIGHT PROTESTS AND WHAT DEMOCRAT STANDS FOR
Red States: It is realized within this group that “All lives matter.” There is a desire to keep taxes down as much as possible, and keep governing to a minimum, thus allowing our citizenry to make their decisions on the local level. The failed Obamacare is rightly interpreted as unconstitutional. The evangelicals are still found in the heartland and have great influence in the red states. 82% of evangelicals voted Republican. There is a desire to curb the immigration of illegals and those who would seek the harm of our nation. Abortion is rightly interpreted as pure unadulterated murder. The Judeo Christian ethic upon which our country was founded, is greatly esteemed and respected. Sanctuary cities are seen in a very negative light, and as a method to harbor criminals. Patriotism is a positive trait, and the flag is raised as we love God and Country. The flag is esteemed and adored, not burned and trampled upon. There is no hatred for the LGBT Community; yet they are seen as living a perverted lifestyle, totally contrary to the will of God. Public restrooms should remain the way they have always been – for men and for women period. Marriage is ONLY between one man and one woman. Muslims are welcome to America insofar that they submit to our Constitution and do not attempt to implement Sharia Law. Since this scenario is very unlikely, the immigration of Muslims to the United States of America will always be a difficult issue. Second amendment rights are endorsed, and afford protection for our citizenry. It is a well established fact that where people are allowed to carry arms, there is less crime. The United States Constitution is fully endorsed, and is seen as representing the very law upon which our nation and government were built. The Brexit decision in Great Britain is greatly appreciated, as Britain decided they do not desire allegiance and unity with the European Union. The New World Order (NWO) is interpreted as the enemy of the sovereignty of the United States of America. Many nations in the United Nations are Islamic, and a danger to our beliefs as Americans. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is observed as a political football that carries a huge bureaucratic agenda with it. (i.e. Taxing farmers hundreds and even thousands of dollars for each cow they own, and heavily taxing the land that animals graze on, etc., etc., etc.) The citizens of the red states are saddened when their candidates lose the election, yet do not enter the riot or self pity mode, or threaten to somehow usurp the election results.
Yes, there is a deep chasm running through our nation, and two totally opposing world views. Will they eventually threaten the unity of our United States?
Pray For Revival In America!
Donald Trump has a burden for our broken inner cities. Their infrastructure is deplorable, and their neglect is great. A few months ago, Dr. Ben Carson arranged for Trump to meet with key spiritual leaders in black Protestant churches in Detroit, Michigan. They laid hands on Trump and prayed with him. Like modern day prophets, they told Trump that his opponents would vilify him to no end. His opposition would be enough to make the average man throw in the towel. They said however, that the Lord had His hand on him and would enable him and see him through.
Trump has also had meetings with James Dobson, other evangelistic leaders, and has been endorsed by the American Renewal Project. The Renewal Project are Protestant pastors across denominational lines, who are praying with urgency for renewal, political involvement, and revival in America! I am grateful to be one of them. Pray that Donald Trump would submit to the Lord, and that real spiritual change would reign in his heart. Donald Trump seems very receptive to the tutelage of Christian mentors.
Do not lose sight that the political outcome of this election was allowed by the Lord. Quite frankly, after the last two elections I really wondered if the Lord was finished with America. The results from November 8 are an indication of His grace. Hillary Clinton thought it was all over except for the shouting. The planets all had to align perfectly for a Trump upset and they did. What was the difference? Evangelicals actually got out and did what they are SUPPOSE to do. Now, Christians need to continue to repent, pray, fast, and in some cases we need to become politically involved ourselves.
2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Blessings, Pastor Steve
Pray For Revival In America!
The Lord Did Indeed Place Donald Trump In Office –
The following article is a good one, however, seems to imply that the Lord intervened in the voting process several hours into the evening of November 8. Since the ballets were already turned in and the voting was nearly finished, that makes little sense to me. We are thankful for all the believers who prayed during the election returns throughout the evening, yet the Lord honored the prayers of all the saints during the days, weeks, months and years PRIOR to the election. It was already a done deal. It simply all played itself out through the voting process:
WASHINGTON – Election eve 2016 began without any real sign of a gathering storm. No hint a popular revolt was brewing. In fact, just the opposite.
The networks were reporting the mood in the inner circle of the Republican candidate was subdued, somber, tense, even foreboding – as if fearing the worst.
In direct contrast, the mood in the camp of the Democratic Party presidential candidate was described as confident, expectant and already almost celebratory.
When the first polls closed on the East Coast and the first results began to come in, those moods seemed to be swiftly confirmed by reality. The pre-election polls were not wrong. Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton immediately took the lead.
And she was winning in the battleground states.
She was leading in Florida. She was leading in North Carolina. She was leading in Pennsylvania. She was leading in Ohio. Clinton was threatening to pull away and end the suspense early.
At 7 p.m., there was no sign of a popular uprising led by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. There was no sign at 8 p.m. There was still no sign as time inexorably marched on.
Something would have to break.
And then it did.
Like a scene out of the film “It’s a Wonderful Life,” people had begun to pray.
But not just in one small town. Across America. And around the world.
Simple acts of faith heralded the first faint wisps of a breeze that would soon become a storm that would shake the world.
It began in Jerusalem.
Christians from many nations gathered in the heart of Israel to pray and fast for the fate of the United States. Americans knelt on stage as the faithful prayed. Organizers instructed them to pray like never before for a just God to deliver his most Christian nation. They called it the Jerusalem Global Gathering.
Christians in Jerusalem pray for America
Christians also gathered to pray for the nation outside the U.S. Capitol. As WND reported, pastor Dan Cummins of the small rural East Texas town of Bullard led prayers for a return to biblical principles.
And it was in Texas that the prayers for deliverance were sent around the world, using modern technology.
A large prayer group had gathered in Dallas, hosted by Ken Copeland ministries. It was broadcast by the Daystar channel. Presenters David Barton and former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., invited viewers to join in prayer.
Daystar has a global reach of 400 million potential viewers.
As they prayed, something began to stir.
“At the precise moment we began broadcasting on Daystar,” Bachmann told WND, “as the polls were still open, and a national audience of believers joined together and prayed in concert, we literally saw the race break in favor of Trump.”
“At that very minute.”
She presented proof.
“The New York Times documented the shift in voting from that minute.”
Michele Bachmann on Donald Trump’s victory: ‘The Lord did this’
“The Times put out a timeline tracking the election results as they broke for Trump last night,” Bachmann continued. “We went wild in the Dallas studio last night when David Barton, Ken and Terri Copeland, and various pastors saw that the victory for Trump began exactly at the precise moment believers corporately, over national television, sought the Lord for His favor upon our nation.”
“We knew it was at the exact same time that believers joined in corporate prayer on behalf of voting for a godly platform. Believers brought the Lord into this election, and that made all the difference,” added the devout believer.
“That is the story of last night’s victory. I have no doubt. The strong right arm of a holy God heard the prayers of His people and graciously answered our prayers,” Bachmann reflected.
“It truly explains the Trump victory. I have no doubt. No man can take the credit. Only the strong right arm of a merciful God.”
But that was in harmony with the “believers interceding on behalf of the American election last night in Jerusalem, praying in concert with those of us praying in America.”
And there is no doubt someone was listening.
In addition to the hundreds-of-millions of viewers within Daystar’s reach, the event drew about a million views online.
Bachmann said there had been a genuine repentance and coordinated beseeching of God. She told WND, “We saw the effective fervent prayers of righteous believers availing much.”
“And, prayers so specific,” she explained, “we prayed for elections by county and cities and districts. We literally watched results follow the faithful effectual prayers of righteous people who had humbled themselves and cried out to God for his mercy. This wasn’t credit for us; this was clearly the Lord’s gracious doing.”
Bachmann proclaimed, “It is the story of the night and the biggest story of the year. I have no doubt.”
“We were told more believers came out to vote in this election than ever before,” she reflected, and the numbers confirmed that.
Trump benefited from the largest evangelical turnout out in history.
Exit polls showed that an overwhelming 80 percent of white evangelical voters (who made up 25 percent of all 2016 voters) supported Trump.
Related columns (story continues below):
The people — and God — have spokenby Pat Boone
Trump: President by the sovereign intervention of God by Michael Brown
Evangelicals of color preferred Clinton, but she did not get the same support from Hispanics and African-Americans as did President Obama.
Polls also showed that Trump recaptured the Catholic vote for the GOP by a margin of 52 percent to 45 percent, after most of them voted for Obama in the two previous presidential elections.
Bachmann said all of this “shows the necessity of believers voting for biblical principles in the voting booth.”
Despite the victory, she concluded the work has just begun for the faithful, as well as the president-elect.
“This is not the time for believers to celebrate and turn away from doing our part affecting our society with the salt and light found in the Bible.”
“Now is the time,” she continued, “for pastors to preach biblically from America’s pulpits on the various issues we confront in America.”
“This is a beginning for people of faith. It is an opportunity to share the gospel and educate people on the fundamental primacy of the foundation of western civilization: the Bible.”
So, what did happen around 8 p.m. Eastern time, when the Times indicated the odds favoring Trump began a dramatic turnaround in his favor?
Did prayers sway the vote, or did they coincide with the moment the tabulations began to swing to Trump?
Either way, there could be a case to be made that the Trump victory was not really the work of man, because man chose Clinton.
She won the popular vote. Just as the polls predicted.
But it was where those people voted that made all the difference. Providentially, perhaps, the shift toward Trump happened in the key swing states needed to push him over the top in the all-important Electoral College.
From that perspective, Trump’s victory might indeed be seen, even by the skeptical, as less the work of man, and more of an act of God.

Donald Trump And His Basket Of Deplorables, Pull Off An Upset Against The Washington Elitists, Similar To The Recent Brexit Vote In Great Britain. This Election Was A Referendum Of American’s Disgust Of Rank And File Politicians On Both Sides Of The Aisle. Americans Are Absolutely Fed Up With The Bipartisan Ruling Class.
Remember this quotation from Ted Cruz during the Republican primaries? “No one named “The Donald” can ever win the presidency.”
Fast Polling Facts: White women and evangelicals won the day and were Donald’s Trump card (pun intended). 82% of evangelicals voted for Donald Trump. 77% of voters angry with how the federal government is working voted for Donald Trump. The ONLY poll that got it right was that of the Los Angeles Times. It goes without saying, there will be a lot of study to see why this was so.
Observations about the elections: Donald Trump won the presidency, never having served in the military or held public office. This is the first time that has ever happened. This is bigger than Ronald Reagan’s election, and may be the greatest single political event in American history. I feel euphoria and hope for this nation in so many ways now. President Obama’s executive orders will be overturned and nullified. The failed and unconstitutional Obamacare will be repealed. Our war veterans and police officers will be supported and held in esteem. Our religious freedoms will remain secure and in tact. The swamp in Washington D.C. (i.e. corruption) will be drained. Godly Supreme Court Justices will be selected. The broken down infrastructure of urban cities will be addressed. The integrity of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Justice Department, State Department and Attorney General will be restored. There will be no gridlock in Washington D.C., given the Republican majority in the White House and Congress. Our nation’s military will be built up, and will be better able to defend our country. Jobs will be created in America and brought home from overseas. The borders will be closed to those who desire to harm our country and citizenry. Immigration will be controlled. Donald Trump himself, is very receptive to the Gospel, and I was told he made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ this past June. Unborn babies will be protected. Restrooms will be for men and women respectively. Marriage will be acknowledged as between one man and one woman. Our foreign policy will become so much better – our allies will trust us and our enemies will respect us. Israel will once again be our friend and ally! Radical Islam will be called for what it is. Isis will be pursued to the ends of the earth. Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will have a mutual respect for each other. America will become great again!
Donald Trump is a 70 year old billionaire who pulled off the greatest upset and victory in American history.
I am thankful for our church, and our resilient prayer warriors for the outcome of this election. There were teams who prayed for this election throughout the nation on Facebook every night at 9 o’clock. My wife and I prayed daily without ceasing. This was the largest evangelical vote turnout in decades. There is no doubt that the outcome of this election was a “God thing.” We need to pray for Donald Trump as our forty fifth president elect. That is the sacred duty and obligation of every American to pray that our leader is successful, wise, and brings peace and prosperity to the country.
Blessings, Pastor Steve

We all want this election to be over, but America is at an important crossroads. We wish our choices were better. We’re sick of the talking heads on TV and all the “He said”, “She said” rhetoric.
I want to challenge you to look past the personalities of each individual, running for offices at every level, and look at their platform. What does their platform represent?
When we elect officials, we are in essence voting on a platform of beliefs. I’m talking the vision and values of their party.
Please take a few moments and watch this video of my comments Sunday about the election.
WeCAN make a difference! Please vote!
When they come to write the story of the spiritual resurrection of 21st Century America, a new type of shepherd will likely have come forward.
These forerunners will have stood in flat contradiction to everything that the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton types holds dear.
*** Baby Butcher For President 2016 ***
How would you like to be aborted Hillary, just before you would have been born? You are a murderer.
They will contradict, denounce and protest in the name of God what Secularism has done to America. They “will love Christ and the souls of men to the point of willingness to die for the glory of the one and the salvation of the other. But they will fear nothing that breathes with mortal breath.“*
With a Hillary Clinton presidency America is about to learn something that can be learned in no other way, the ethical path is the only safe one. “When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I”, cried the sweet Psalmist of Israel.** ” Tribulation brings us to God and God to us.”***
The anointed eye recognizes that what is needed today are those with the ability to “appraise the religious scene as viewed from God’s position, and to tell us what is actually going on.”**** Most desperately needed is not another market research firm specializing in the study of religious beliefs and behavior of the American pews, but thermostats who impact and regulate the spiritual climate of the nation.
Evangelical pastors and pews must take our game to the next level. Fundamentally we must begin to comprehend that Religious Liberty will be won by organizing and notSunday sermons. A Sunday sermon is not a denomination of political currency; mustering and marshaling parishioners to the public square is. But be not mistaken, the teaching of the whole counsel of God in America’s pulpits, and the resurrection of prayer in America’s churches — led by the senior pastor — will determine if America remains free.
The disciples of godless Secularism are not cowed by sermons, marches, or prayer rallies. Those doing this to our country must be removed from the public stage, that’s the initial stopgap. Following secularists removal from office — if America is to be saved — Secularism will have to be demolished, eliminating its choke-hold on the media, public education, higher learning, Big Business, the Supreme Court, Federal Courts, and Hollywood.
What Secularism is doing to America is gambling with the very life of the nation; most Americans are unalarmed and clueless. What is the matter with the people of America?
