Lurker, you're right I have to stop getting stuff off of that filthy liberal news source, Fox News Networkâ đąđŠ I know how error-prone it is, like the rest of its ilkâ
You even had some (most?) of the liberals in the video, attacking the ex-Trump aide for attacking Mike Pence, because she was planning to write a book. Or at least that is what most of them surmised. Anyway, that is more of The View than I ever watched before--or will later.
But yes, I will try to avoid using Fox News Network as a source next time.
You really need to look the following over, Lurker.

John WL Berry wrote: ....Better is a relative term and, given the low bar set by Trump, it is an easy goal to achieve depending on how you define âbetter.â Pence would definitely bring far less drama and volatility to the office. He would not have the entourage of family members and fringe misfits that Trump has assembled. [ ] Indeed, a President Pence would surround himself with far more âmainstreamâ conservatives. He would have the advice and counsel of people who have made advancing a conservative agenda their lifeâs work. He would employ people who have studied the issues and who, through years of practice, have become skilled in promoting a meaner, more racist, [ ] more sexist, more stratified America. And this, I believe, makes him far worse for America.
This boycott caught could be of use, bringing on a closer observation of Pence?
Tony Cook, Chelsea Schneider, Kaitlin L Lange wrote: House Minority Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, called the turn away from Pence's policies "fascinating."
"The Mike Pence legacy came to a very quick end today, probably the shortest one in Indiana gubernatorial history," he said. "We just saw his final two vetoes overridden. Gov. Holcomb made the very common sense decision to address the East Chicago lead problem, which has been our own Flint (Mich.) in the making. He pardoned an innocent man which seems basic human decency. And he allowed that bicentennial cellphone tower deal to die a cowâs death here in the Hoosier state."
1 Peter 2:23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.
1 Peter 3:15-17 but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil. ---ESV

Tim, you should read other parts of Robert Reich's article, for example:
Robert Reich wrote: According to the New York Times, Donald Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 tax returns â which could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for 18 years....
Ordinary investors in Trumpâs business empire saw the value of their shares plunge to 17 cents from $35.50, bondholders got pennies on the dollar, and scores of contractors went unpaid. [ ]
But Trump got a bonanza because the tax code allows ânet operating lossesâ to cancel out taxable income in future years. And the bankruptcy code allows wealthy people to stiff the people they owe by reorganizing their debts under Chapter 11....
The real scandal here is that Trump and other hugely wealthy people can get away with this, and do so all the time. Itâs just another way the system has been rigged â by rich people who buy off politicians to alter tax, bankruptcy, and other laws and regulations to their advantage, just like Donald Trump has done.
I'll have to say one thing not only does President Trump pick trophy wives, his paramours aren't too bad looking either. đ

I can guarantee you one thing--none of that tax money came from Trump.
Robert Reich wrote: .... Bankruptcy is also easy to utilize, if youâre wealthy enough to find a good bankruptcy lawyer who can use the bankruptcy code repeatedly to shelter your fortune and avoid paying your debts. Trump has used bankruptcy to stiff his creditors at least four times....
As a businessman and a very substantial donor to very important people, when you give, they do whatever the **** you want them to do,â Trump told The Wall Street Journal in July 2015. âAs a businessman, I need that.â
Trump isnât and was never a smart businessman. He was and is smart at gaming the system. Thereâs a difference.
Tina Bellon, Jan Wolfe wrote: (Reuters) - A few U.S. states have laws allowing police and family members to obtain orders barring people suspected of being a threat from possessing guns, but Florida does not. Some gun control proponents and legal experts said Wednesdayâs school shooting might have been thwarted if it had.
Suspected shooter Nikolas Cruzâs history of violence in school and disturbing social media posts would have allowed authorities to prevent him from legally obtaining a firearm in California and Connecticut, which have gun violence restraining order (GVRO) statutes, the experts said.
Well, if your state government isn't in the pocket of the National Rifle Association, you might be able to get something like the above law passed in your state. Of course nothing with the present Congress and President will happen anyway of any consequence at the federal level.
Having an assault rifle is not a right, Watcher. Justice Scalia pointed that out!
â˘ Mr Trump directly addressed children who may feel 'lost alone, confused or even scared' â˘ No specific policy recommendations were made but he pledged to help secure schools and tackle mental health issues â˘ Barack Obama tweeted out an emotional plea for 'common-sense gun safety laws'
Last year, he [ Trump ] signed a resolution blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people.
John MacArthur wrote: Many think this is a political problem that will not be solved without a political strategy. During the past twenty-five years, well-meaning Christians have founded a number of evangelical activist organizations and sunk millions of dollars into them in an effort to use the apparatus of politicsâlobbying, legislation, demonstration, and boycottâto counteract the moral decline of American culture....
But is that a proper perspective? I believe not. Americaâs moral decline is a spiritual problem, not a political one, and its solution is the gospel, not partisan politics.
Colossians 3:4-8 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.---ESV

France has been very strong for separation of church and state since the French Revolution. I don't believe they allow foreign governments to even to fund the building of mosques. So this would be a strange departure from their typical policy.
Pew Research Center wrote: Most governments around the globe, however, are generally neutral toward religion. More than 100 countries and territories included in the study have no official or preferred religion as of 2015. These include countries like the United States that may give benefits or privileges to religious groups, but generally do so without systematically favoring a specific group over others.
Yes it's hard to believe that any voter for Trump is an evangelical no matter what the color, but anyway,
Andrew Greeley and Michael Hout wrote: .... Any attempt to forge a link of logical or doctrinal consistency between conservative religious belief and conservative politics falters when one considers African American Conservative Christians. In general, as we have reported, the doctrinal and ethical perspectives of African Americans in Afro-American Protestant denominations are, if anything, more conservative than those of whites in other Conservative Protestant denominations. Yet religiously committed African Americans, especially those in the Afro-American Protestant denominations, are the most politically liberal of any major group in American society. Whatever their feelings about abortion or evolution or homosexuality, they still vote in overwhelming numbers for Democratic candidates....
Chauncey DeVega wrote: ... Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said this during an interview on CNN: "My understanding is that [the new proposal] will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool. That helps offset all these costs, thereby reducing the cost to those people who lead good lives, theyâre healthy, theyâve done the things to keep their bodies healthy. And right now, those are the people â whoâve done things the right way â that are seeing their costs skyrocketing."
These comments are abominable. Brooks believes that babies and children with serious illnesses deserve their fate, or that those who have "done the things to keep their bodies healthy" and still develop chronic diseases like cancer have done things the "wrong way". The Republican Party's war on the American people and the common good should be condemned by all decent human beings. Any Republicans who vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act should be publicly shamed and voted out of office.
There is almost no such thing as non liturgical worship, John Y.--only formal or informal.
John MacArthur wrote: Before we really get into our worship, I pray a prayer, as you know, and itâs really a priestly prayer, itâs a prayer to bring the congregation before the Lord, itâs a prayer for the confession of sin, itâs a prayer for cleansing. Itâs a prayer for repentance, admitting my sin, the greatness of God, the glory of Christ, the wonder of the gospel. And I go through all of that pretty much every Sunday in that prayer because I want people in their hearts, first of all, to celebrate the greatness of God and the goodness of God and the grace of God and all of that. And then once weâve gone before God and opened up our hearts to Him, we come out of that confession, out of that repentance, out of that intercession and weâre ready, our hearts have been lifted up and weâre ready to sing. The sermon then comes to inform the foundation of all worship, and that is the truth. If youâre going to worship in spirit and in truth, you have to know the truth....I think the sermon, the truth, is the most important ingredient in worship.
