Who’s Really Worthy of Praise?

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV

No matter what happens in America — or even in the world — when we have a right relationship with God, He will always steer us in the direction of His Word.

Military parades — especially those displaying military armament — are usually a tool of dictators to flex military might, but it is more importantly — a demonstrable display of a leader’s insecurities. Therefore, the “military parade” Rumplethinskin wants — is not a celebration of a military victory — those things we normally celebrate using a segment of the military — but a blatant disregard for those who serve in the military to appease his ego and amplify his insecurities.

Many veterans and those currently serving are disgusted by the idea of a military parade to assuage an ego-maniac, especially since he is draft-dodger who refused to serve in the military when called upon — “Cadet Bone Spurs” is an apt nickname for him. Though he loudly proclaims respect for the military — those who know — understand he lies and he’s covering for the fact — he didn’t serve and nor did any of his family. In fact, his grandfather was expelled from Germany because he refused to serve a mandatory stint in the military. It appears — disdain for serving in the military is in his DNA — and therefore nullifies any respect from anyone who has served or is serving in the military.

Claiming that Democrats who didn’t “clap” for him during his State of the Union message committed treason is an a treason in itself. It demonstrates his lack of knowledge of the 1st Amendment of the Constitution or determined disregard for it and that he is not upholding or defending the Constitution as his oath proclaims. If in fact, disrespecting a sitting president was a treasonous offense, we’d not have very many in Congress still there.

There was the incident of the Congressman who shouted out, “You lie” during one of Obama’s State of Union messages.

There was Paul Ryan sitting as stiff as board through Obama’s State of the Union messages, not clapping or standing.

There was the entire Republican party who “sat on their hands” during Obama’s State of the Union messages, not clapping, not even paying attention.

And then there is the constant malignant rhetoric promoted by Rumplethinskin proclaiming Obama was not an American. That indeed is treasonous, but he’s never been charged or arrested or convicted of a “treason.”

What makes Rumplethinskin think he has an absolute right to be “worshiped?” His malignant narcissistic ego compels him to believe he’s “worthy to be praised.” Of course, his equally ignorant base enables his thinking since they clamor for his stupidity at every rally. He is not worthy of praise. He is worthy of total disdain and disgust conviction for treason when it is revealed that he conspired with Russia to rig the 2016 election and is still conspiring with them to erode our democracy. “Giving comfort and aid to our adversaries (enemies)” encompasses the definition of “treason.” So, if anyone is guilty of treason, it is Rumplethinskin and his entire administration including the “crime family” mob wannabes.

No matter how much stupid we see from the current resident in the White House, we will not give in or give up nor surrender our values for him to trample on them. We will continue resisting the stupid and blatant ignorance until justice prevails and we call sleep better at night.

Hope is around the corner in the mid term elections and in the 2020 election. We can reverse the stupid and reclaim our position as a world leader if we exercise wisdom in whom we elect. We don’t need to ever elect again, a person who has so much to hide that they deliberately obstruct justice when under investigation.

My life is an open book and ready for inspection by anyone who has access to the Internet.

I don’t have a problem presenting my tax returns which will indeed prove — I’m simply an Everyday American — retired and paying taxes.

I have no problem discussing any questions anyone might have of my past or present — as long as the questions are relevant to the position I’m seeking and my ability to perform well in it.

But getting back to being praise-worthy — nothing worth praising about the current resident in the White House and I don’t know if there will be anything worth praising with a new resident because realistically — none of us are worth praise, but God alone is. With that being the case, I’ll give Him the Praise for He is the only One worthy of it.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for being who You are and for creating me to be who You want me to be — all glory and honor and praise belong to You all the days of my life.
