Re: TRUMP ROCKS! RUSSIA TALKS! HILLARY WALKS! BUT, NO "SESSIONS" FOR SEN. SESSION

As a moderate conservative, I enthusiastically support President elect Mr. Trump, and the new tone from Russia proves he is the right person for the job.

CEO Trump worked very hard to get this job, and he has earned the respect of even many liberals. He is the president now, and the Bible says to honor authorities of state power. But, I strongly believe, and I believe he may be being advised the same thing, that Senator Sessions from Alabama is not a viable option for Attorney General and could threaten Mr. Trump's administration. Sessions will appear to the public to represent the past "good 'ol boys club," and especially being from the south, and to represent the failed anti-drug obsession of the 1980's that has proven to be not only costly, punishes minoritities, but has also proven to be not only ineffective, but to increase the danger to society, especially during a racially sensitive period in American history.

I believe this would be a serious mistake to go backwards at this time, since it would not be "Back to the Future," but, just back to one of the worst administrative failures of the Republican party, all due respect to Ronald Reagan, and, "some people choose to live on the street." He may have been right, but, they never chose 20 years in prison for minor drug crimes.

Justice reform is a new, powerful bipartisan storm sweeping America, and Mr. Trump should take this into consideration, that the appointment of Sen. Sessions could not only destroy his presidency, but, America as well.

This is not a good time, Mr. President, for a "white dude from Alabama," to be in charge of justice in America. Seriously. Think Gov. Wallace here. It's a bad idea.
Remember Sandra Bland.
So her death is not in vain.

"The LORD does not despise His prisoners..." (Psalms--some 3,000 years ago)
"I have come to announce freedom to all who are imprisoned upon the earth." --Jesus of Nazareth


"That's how I see things from this chair here, Gene." (Apollo 13)
"Don't push a bad position." ("Top Gun." Paramount; 1986)
"Fear can hold you prisoner; Hope can set you free." ("Shawshank Redemption"; Darabout/Stephen King; 1994.)
Not trying to split hairs....but.... not president until January 20, 2017 when he is sworn in. He is president elect until then.

Re: TRUMP ROCKS! RUSSIA TALKS! HILLARY WALKS! BUT, NO "SESSIONS" FOR SEN. SESSION

Why do I have to translate everything I say? It was the same with Jesus-- He told His disciples to "beware of the "yeast" of the Pharisees." (religious lawyers) They didn't know what He was talking about. He said, "Do you not even understand yet?" He was warning them about the teachings of the Pharisees, such as their compulsion to wash their hands in a ritual, and other things. He said that food that we eat can not defile people, but that evil intentions, hatreds, conspiring, actions, etc...are what defile people. He also said that, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast."

I also compared the failed anti-drug obsessions of the 1980's, that many people now agree, accomplished nothing. Including Police Chief, Leonard Companello of Gloucaster, Massachusetts, who said last year:
"THE WAR ON DRUGS IS OVER; WE LOST. THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN ARREST OUR WAY OUT OF THIS."

It is a war that is impossible to win, at least the way they have been fighting it. It has been a war on addiction, which can not be won, since the very nature of addicting drugs is a physiological war, not a criminal war, or social war. This is something Chief Companello came to understand, when he changed the drug focus to treatment over incarceration.

I also compared the failed "Just say no," campaign to a dinosaur or dragon-- either extinct or imaginary. Just saying no to an addicting drug like heroin, is delusional and irrational, and throwing addicts into jail to die without medical detox facilities amounts to "cruel and unusual punishment," for which the federal and state authorities responsible for doing so, especially in Alaska, can be help accountable to the Supreme Court, as a clear violation to the 8th Amendment. Crystal.

The other comparison was to the movie, "Top Gun," a famous air-combat movie from 1986 with the famous line between "Maverick" (Tom Cruise) and "Charlie," a lady aeronautical engineer (Kelly McGillis), when he says, "You can't think up there (aerial combat); If you think-- you're dead." Meaning that there is no time to think, you just have to know how to react instantly, making life and death decisions in less than a second. To which the aeronautical engineer replies: "That's a heck of a gamble with a 25 million(?) dollar airplane, Lieutenant."

My comparison was that the President-elect has time to think through his decision on the Attorney General, since it's not aerial combat, but, strategic combat.
A lot of words to say nothing much... last sentence not so bad though.

Re: TRUMP ROCKS! RUSSIA TALKS! HILLARY WALKS! BUT, NO "SESSIONS" FOR SEN. SESSION

WHY IS CAPITAL PUNISHMENT (DEATH PENALTY) "CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT" AND A VIOLATION OF THE 8TH AMENDMENT?" (USA CONSTITUTION)

Why is capital punishment "cruel and unusual punishment," something outlawed by the 8th amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America? Because the execution of Jesus of Nazareth in Israel by the Roman state empire and the corrupt, legalistic leaders of Israel at the time, which was the definition of "cruel and unusual punishment," was meant to be the final capital punishment. Why? Because it demonstrated that innocent people can wrongly be put to death. That should be the final argument for the death penalty. And, because all human beings deserve the death penalty as punishment for our sins, whether they are simple or grievous, because all humanity has been equally imprisoned upon the earth, and banished from Heaven as sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. The only way to be reborn as sons and daughters of God's Kingdom is through the one capital punishment of Jesus, the Son of God, which was ordained by God as the only eternal "peace-treaty" with earth's people or the "New Covenant" of Mercy and Grace. This perfectly fulfilled the "Old Covenant," of "eye-for-an-eye," imperfect justice of legalism, which still motivates Islamic justice today, and so-called Godless, secular "justice," in America and other secular Western cultures.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IN THE ROMAN STATE EMPIRE


The Roman Empire used the capital punishment of nailing human beings to wooden cross-beams, or "crucifixion," to control God's people, even executing them for minor offenses, or anyone they considered a threat, similar to what oppressive regimes in recent history have done. Condemning people to animal cages, sometimes for what many people would consider lessor offenses, or even being innocent, does not "cleanse them of their sins." Putting them to death, depending on the circumstances, can be the equivalent of making human sacrifices to the idol of state legalism.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT OF UNBORN CITIZENS

Putting unborn human beings to death by the same secular state authority, is the equivalent of making human sacrifes to the devil. The state has no right to execute people by default for minor offenses, which is what happened to Sandra Bland in Texas. It happened because of the archaic, arbitrary, and obsolete design of the corrupt, costly and innefective justice system in America that does nothing whatsoever to deter crime. Not one person ever considered the death penalty or even prison before they committed their crimes, or one drug addict from their drugs.

WAKE UP MILLENIALS! UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU!
Not only that, for the millenial generation, just losing their iphones for a week or their freedom, amounts to "cruel and unusual punishment." Taking first offenders, and low offenders, especially young people, or drug addicts, or emotionally burdoned adults and women, and throwing them to the wolves in animal cages, is an easy case for law suits because of the emotional devastation that this kind of trauma can cause. Many of these young people are scarred for life, and consistently, they take their own lives within hours or days, when faced by this kind of immoral oppression and psychological avalanche that is no different from Nazi concentration camps, or Taliban/Islamic oppression.

ECONOMIC JUSTICE FOR MILLENIALS AND MINORITIES WHO DIED IN PRISON
These people deserve economic justice! Those who try to continue to unjustly imprison America and minorities, will find themselves opposing God Himself, who says: "I have come to announce freedom to those who have been given the death-penalty," (all humanity) (paraphrase of Jesus quoting the prophet Isaiah at Nazareth). And, "God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it." (John 3:17; NLT)

THE WAR ON DRUGS CAN NOT BE WON USING PAST OR PRESENT POLICIES--INCARCERATION INCREASES DANGER TO SOCIETY


This is why many people rightly believe that the "WAR ON DRUGS IS OVER!! AND WE LOST." One police chief said this and added that "THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN ARREST OUR WAY OUT OF THIS." He understood that for every one drug dealer that is taken out, there are a thousand more still at work, and another thousand waiting in the wings. There's just not enough personnel. The answer is in a radical strategic paradigm-shift. It's not rocket science.



JESUS: THE FINAL CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

Conversely, the divine justice of the "New Covenant," which Jesus established, is one where all people who truly repent and turn from their sins, and turn to God, become a part of the free-pardon of the Cross of Christ, who took the death penalty for humanity who want to walk in God's friendship. Even in the Old Testament, the most well-known king, king David, who had God's favor and who Jesus was descended from, once spared the life of a king who had even executed many Jewish priests and their families, causing him to repent in tears, and endorse him as king. He said he still had to face God's justice, but that he refused to execute him. This is the unimaginable justice of a true king--the divine King of Heaven and earth.

PAUL OF TARSUS: A FORMER MURDERER HELPS ESTABLISH CHRISTIANITY

The Apostle Paul confirms that the Law of Moses, which has it's roots in religious law, not secular law, can not save or reform anyone since it is based on the fallen concept of legalism or "punishment for punishment's sake" (eye-for-an-eye mentality), who once actively murdured Christians as "enemies of the Jewish state or religion," says in Romans 7:7-

THE FUTILITY OF THE LAW AND SECULAR LEGALISM: PAUL--ROMANS 7:7-13; NLT)
"...The law is not sinful, but it was the law that showed me my sin...If there was no law, sin would not have that power. I felt fine when I did not understand wha the law demanded. But when I learned the truth, I realized I had broken the law and was a sinner, doomed to die. So the good law, which was supposed to show me the way of life, instead gave me the death penalty...But still, the law itself is holy and right and good...So we can see how terrible sin really is. It uses God's good comandment for its own evil purposes." (i.e., Capital punishment and excessive imprisonment or sacrificing lives to the idol of secular legalism). (From Romans 7:7-13--NLT)

WHAT IS THE ANSWER?

What is the answer? Paul, speaking for Jesus and the law, explains in Romans 8-3--


"So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. For the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you through Christ Jesus from the power of sin that leads to death. The Law of Moses could not save us, because of our sinful nature." (Romans 8:1-3)


Think of where Christianity would be if God had allowed the Israelites and the Romans to imprison or execute the Apostle Paul before he had completed his mission--to highlight the message of the Free-Gift of God's Grace, that can never be earned, because of how amazingly awesome it is! Without Jesus, it would be like an eagle trying to fly into the sun on it's own power...it's just not possible.

Please don't insult the Word of God, the Apostle Paul, or the Christians who deliver it, or those who have died to defend it. Thank-you.
