WASHINGTON - President Bush endorsed Republican nominee-in-waiting John McCain on Wednesday, two bitter rivals from the 2000 presidential race joining together now in hopes of preventing Democrats from winning the White House this fall.
"John showed incredible courage, strength of character and perseverance in order to get to this moment and that's exactly what we need in a president â somebody who can handle the tough decisions, somebody who won't flinch in the face of danger," Bush said, appearing with McCain in the Rose Garden.
Bush's embrace of the Arizona senator as the party's next standard-bearer comes a day after McCain clinched the GOP nomination by getting the requisite 1,191 convention delegates. Republicans won't officially nominate McCain until early September at the GOP's national convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul....
Jim Lincoln wrote: It is true that cooperation between both sides of the aisle is necessary. John McCain tries to do that on occasion. Something that the Republicans will want when the Democrats take over Congress.
Maybe you can remember a date when the Democrats reached "across the aisle." It's only expected of Republicans, if you've a mind to pay attention.
Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; a government, in which there is a disagreement between the chiefs of it, and the body of the people, or where one part is opposed to the other, or in which a civil and intestine war is begun and prosecuted, cannot continue in any comfortable situation, and flourishing state, but must come to nothing: this is a maxim that has been so often fatally verified, that no one will doubt the truth of it; and the same holds true of lesser communities, of cities, and families.

Politics is one of the 'means' used to bring this nation down, and minions of Satan like Jim L. gladly push the agenda of destruction. There is NO king but Christ, political parties cannot restore to America its greatest need --- to repent and believe. America doesn't have to worry about outward destruction, for this nation is inwardly disintegrating.
Mike wrote: Jim, McCain is now old enough and near the end enough where he can speak his mind more openly, revealing things about himself that please the NY Times, and his Democrat colleagues. I'm not sure why this is good, except to reveal that our suspicions about him are true.

Profile In Treason: The Inconceivable Evil Of John McCainââMan Of Bloodâ
"There is no hatred more complete and no malevolence more fanatical than that held by the American political class for the American people. The commissarâs rage against the kulaks, the jihadistâs fury against the infidel, the inquisitorâs wrath against the unbeliever, all of this pales in comparison to the genocidal bloodlust Senators and Congressmen have against their own constituents. And even as they gleefully promote the outsourcing of jobs, the importation of cheap labor, and the ruthless extirpation of property, wealth and liberty, these shameless parasites demand their slaves die to export their filthy System all over the world.
The most contemptible and dangerous of these vermin is Senator John McCain. In a political career marked by near constant betrayal and hypocrisy, there are only two constants to his bloody career. The first is a passion for war, any war, for any reason, which can only be termed pathological. The second is the desire to replace the people of his own state and the voters of his own party.
Like a dying venomous snake, McCain is using his final moments to strike at President Trump and those who supported him."
Jim, McCain is now old enough and near the end enough where he can speak his mind more openly, revealing things about himself that please the NY Times, and his Democrat colleagues. I'm not sure why this is good, except to reveal that our suspicions about him are true.
S.G. Stolberg wrote: âThe international order we helped build from the ashes of world war, and that we defend to this day, has liberated more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history,â Mr. McCain said.
He went on to deplore as âunpatrioticâ those who would âabandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe,â in favor of âsome half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.â
The speech grew out of a book Mr. McCain is writing with Mark Salter, his longtime speechwriter and co-author. It was not aimed directly at Mr. Trump, Mr. Salter said, but at the philosophy of Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trumpâs former chief strategist, and his hard-charging right-wing website, Breitbart News.
âIn my view, and McCainâs too, these guys at Breitbart are crackpots,â Mr. Salter said.

You do a great job in covering your tracks, and wriggling out of your own messes.
You speak of a God you do not know, for your 'fruit' reveals who your 'god' is....politics and the liberal agenda that you push on these threads day in and day out. Heed the warning and flee to Christ while you have time.
Of course any global Empire set up anyone but anyone but Christ will be wrong, but even if there are individual countries still left when Christ takes over, they can't defy His will
Got Questions wrote: .... God has a plan for globalization under the headship of the King and Redeemer, Jesus Christ (see Revelation 19â20). Evidently, there will still be individual nations under Christâs rule (Zechariah 2:10-11). The Kingdom will be a time of righteousness and true justice (Isaiah 11:3-5).
How peaceful and joyful the days of Christâs Kingdom will be! Isaiah 12:3-4 describes for us, âWith joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. In that day you will say: âGive thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted

Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Neither publicly in a court of judicature, by laying things to his charge that are false, and swearing to them, to his hurt and damage; nor privately, by whispering, tale bearing, backbiting, slandering, by telling lies of him, traducing his character by innuendos, sly insinuations, and evil suggestions, whereby he may suffer in his character, credit, and reputation. John Gill
With every false accusation you make, you add to your sins. True Christians repent, not continue on in sin. 1 John3:8Â He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Â Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10Â In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Keep in mind that bearing false witness is a sin. If you were born from above, you would come under conviction of your continual sin of bearing false witness. May God's mercy bring you to your knees and break you over your sins, causing you to cry out for mercy and true, genuine salvation.
THE ENORMITY OF THE SIN OF BEARING FALSE WITNESS. The malignity of an offence arises either from the motives that prompted it or the consequences produced by it. The most usual incitement to defamation is envy, or impatience of the merit, or success of other; a malice raised not by any injury received, but merely by the sight of that happiness which we cannot attain. Calumnies are sometimes the offspring of resentment. When a man is opposed in a design which he cannot justify, and defeated in the prosecution of schemes of tyranny, extortion, or oppression, he seldom fails to revenge his overthrow by blackening that integrity which effected it. The consequences of this crime, whatever be the inducement to commit it, are equally pernicious. He that attacks the reputation of another, invades the most valuable part of his property, and perhaps the only part which he can call his own.

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. Thus, while 52 percent of lower-income, white, Conservative Protestants voted Democratic in the 199OS, 90 percent of lower-income Afro-American Protestants did. In the 2004 election those numbers were 22 percent and 96 percent, respectively. Race, therefore, interacts with and ultimately reshapes the link between Conservative Protestantism and conservative politics.
âOne form of worldliness which has spoiled the life and testimony of many a Christian is politics. We will not now discuss the question whether or not the saint ought to take any interest in polities, but simply point out what should be evident to all with spiritual discernment, namely, that to take an eager and deep concern in politics must remove the edge from any spiritual appetite. Clearly, politics are concerned only with the affairs of this world, and therefore to become deeply absorbed in them and have the heart engaged in the pursuit thereof, will inevitably turn attention away from eternal things. Any worldly matter, no matter how lawful in itself, which engages our attention inordinately, becomes a snare and saps our spiritual vitality. We greatly fear that those saints who spent several hours a day in listening to the speeches of candidates, reading the newspapers on them, and discussing party politics with their fellows during the recent election, lost to a considerable extent their relish for the Bread of Life.â A.W. Pink
Unregenerates have no right to speak of God's truth, let alone use it in a way to support an 'agenda' that God doesn't approve. His word is holy, and should never be used in a flippant manner. Calling Christ a 'globalist' in the same sense that McCain is borders blasphemy. Your continual Satanic agenda is growing old here. May God have mercy on you Jim Lincoln, for your views are that of one still dead in trespasses and sin. Like Simon in Acts 8:23, "For I perceive that you are in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity." Playing the religious card is a very dangerous and vile game.

Penny, what does McCain's father have to do with it?
Ezekiel 18:14-17 Now suppose this man fathers a son who sees all the sins that his father has done; he sees, and does not do likewise: he does not eat upon the mountains or lift up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, does not defile his neighbor's wife, does not oppress anyone, exacts no pledge, commits no robbery, but gives his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with a garment, withholds his hand from iniquity, takes no interest or profit, obeys my rules, and walks in my statutes; he shall not die for his father's iniquity; he shall surely live.---ESV
McCain's father has been named by many who claim a coverup of the events of USS Liberty, the attack of an American Ship by the Israelis, a sustained attack that was kept from the ear of the American people at the time.

Of course I'm a globalist, lbug! Just like Donald Trump!
Time Magazine wrote: The President-elect oversees a vast real-estate empire with gleaming outposts around the globe, as well as lucrative business ties to key geopolitical allies and adversaries. Based on the financial disclosure report he filed last year, Trump appears to own or control more than 500 businesses in some two-dozen countries around the world.

Then again, he isn't the John McCain who returned from his POW years.
