Gretchen Whitmer – God Does Not Care About You!

Well, not exactly! I don’t know Governor Whitmer but is she a bad person? Is her heart desperately wicked, and her policies wickedly political? Let’s explore!

Her state has become the center of the Covid crisis not because it ranks first, it actually ranks fifth in total covid cases. But the firestorm in Michigan ranks first in public interest because the governor has made public health decisions into opportunistic political gravy.

It seems the minute that the governor was perceived to be a potential running mate for Joe Biden the craziness began. It was like she started to put on more makeup, buy prettier dresses, and she suddenly found the flattering light of the left wing media satisfying. The beast in her was awakened. Do you remember the Incredible Hulk coming out when he became angry? Well the real Gretchen “comes out” when the lights turn on and the left fawns at her newly found so called strength and celebrity, especially when it can be seen as defying President Trump. This is the evil within, and beware it can affect us all.

Characteristics like the want of power and control are evil indeed. Many people find themselves in positions of power but usually get there from good motives. A true sense of public service is not uncommon when people aspire for public office. Some people see injustice in the political system and enter the frey out a sense of duty or calling. Yes, God calls some to public service. And of course some of you will stop reading if I say I believe God called Donald J. Trump to be our president –  actually I think He did. But give me a chance, read on, CNN is not as interesting. You can hear their spiel over and over, day after day. I think many of you will be pleasantly surprised by my conclusions.

Remember I started out with the premise that God does not care about the Michigan Governor. Well that’s not exactly true. He does care for her. In fact if you believe Jesus, he came from heaven to die for  Gretchen. Yes, even for her sins of promoting abortion, locking down her constituents for political gain, the private wickedness in her heart, and for hating all God fearing, Trump loving people who want to feed their families. God works this way you know. Well at least Christians know it. The Bible says, “Such were some of us” swindlers, idolaters, perverts, homosexuals, drunkards, revilers, thieves,  and even greedy bastards (like most politicians). So Gretchen does not have any trait that the average Christian did not at some point in their lives possess. But does this let her off the hook? Not at all!

So back to, “God does not care for you Gretchen.” My headline, like so many political headlines, is misleading, but there is a whiff of truth in it or it would not have gotten your attention. So let’s straighten everything  out. To Gretchen (though she will unlikely read this), and to all the democrats who think she is doing a great thing by extending lockdowns, God does actually care about you! He loves you very much. But what I am certain of is that He does not like her policies. The policies that protect her political ambitions and negatively affect the health and well being of  the people she is required to serve. Sure it’s tough to please everyone, but we are not talking about pleasing everyone.  We are discussing sin. It is sinful to hurt people intentionally. Her policies can actually be targeted to help my friends who live in Michigan, in places where the virus is stable and descending the curve. The blanket put on the fire does not need to smother every community and every business she alone deems unworthy. Timing is everything too for some people.

The American spirit, prayer, and genuine love for others can overcome this virus. It’s apparent the governor “don’t get this.” But if she does get it, this too is sin if she does not address it. It’s called a sin of omission. Sometimes one’s bad intentions can be hidden, but in this case I believe the governor’s bad intentions are being broadcast to gain favor from the loony left and elevate the governors political status and national celebrity. God does not care about our political ambitions,  he ordains them; and He gives us the responsibility to do good and punish wickedness. Repent and do good!

Finally, we freedom loving people do not hate the “governess” like she and her supporters hate Trump (but she treats us like children). We actually hope she will do what we did long ago. We asked God for forgiveness. We received His grace and through faith we put our trust in Him (not politicians). Now we feed the poor, help the widows, and go to restaurants to enjoy the fellowship of living. And we buy things to better ourselves and our families (when we can). When faced with obstacles we look to God first, then we pray for our leaders to do the right things and we adjust our habits to protect our neighbors. We love our enemies, we hope and pray that they will turn to God and seek His wisdom and His Guidance. When our government officials seek God He provides. So truly God does care for YOU, Governor Whitmer, but he also wants you to care for Him and His people.

The Big Scare is Over for me!

What a joy it has been for us this past week. At the height of the craziness we had friends from Las Vegas come visit us. Yes, we broke all the social distancing rules! And we broke the Govenors lockdown rules, before he reluctantly lifted them.

You see, my friend Jim has prostate cancer and his wife is a quite famous Las Vegas singer/entertainer. Jim was about to start radiation treatment and like the rest of us he was cooped up and going stir crazy. After a visit with his doctor, permission was granted him to take a little break before his radiation treatment begins, and he called me to see if he and his wife could come visit us for a while.

Well, it took me about three seconds to think it through. What if I had it? What if he had it? What if he gets it on the way here? It was a thousand mile drive, surely he would meet somebody with it or touch something incubating the dreaded Corona Virus. But my thoughts were short lived. In fact, I murdered them. “Of course Jimmy,” I said, “you and Genevieve are more than welcome to come stay with us, to hell with the virus and the lockdown, you have cancer and God’s in charge!” We both laughed!

Most people will not agree with me, and many of you reading this will be angry with me for “putting others at risk.” Some, by knowing the circumstances may give me a pass, but others will likely try to shame me for my stupidity; in other words, for my lack of conformity.

Let me say what I have said before, “this virus is more about scaring people and government control than it is about real danger,” at least for most of the population. If you have a brain at all you can see in hindsight the actions we are taking against it are gravely out of proportion and are destroying the lives of thousands and the prosperity and health of millions. 

I feel like I’m in a nightmare and I’m screaming “They are lying to you, and I yell louder and louder, wake up sheeple!” The Cults of State, Science, Media, and Politics, are led not by the best and the brightest, but by the followers of demons, greed, power, and lies. Yes, there are some sane and righteous voices, but the leftist, radical, elitist crowd led by the prince of this world, Satan, are drowning the rest of us out! None of these are a bit concerned for the poorest line cook or cashier who can’t make their rent or pay their bills, heck they hardly care for the old people in hospices, they only seem concerned that their deaths be labeled Covid 19. They only want Trump out and themselves in. They are certainly not sympathetic toward my buddy Jim taking a break before the greatest challenge of his life. The guy has a pacemaker and cancer for God’s sake! How does locking him down help him? How much further will their power hungry, greedy, self centered, aspirations go? And don’t give me the line that this epidemic is worse than the flu! The numbers don’t actually bear that out, yet! I’m still watching Sweden, I think they might be the winner in the end. But if I’m wrong, and I could be about some of it, it’s still true that more than half the world’s population have been scared into submission. Even my guy Trump has no way out of this, they led him down primrose street and would destroy him if he changed course suddenly. I think he has finally seen the folly of following these so called “scientists” and their fake projections. He wisely gave the responsibility back to the govenors and is letting them squirm and flail like slaughtered chickens. I fear you, not me, will face months of their lunacy, and we together will forever lose freedoms we all cannot even imagine.

I think some believe this is just a big extended holiday. The ones with big bank accounts and “work at home” orders that is. The ones who wear masks and look at you with evil eyes if you don’t. And don’t tell me working from home is more productive. Permanently free to work from home means permanently poorer in my book.

I very much fear, and somewhat hope, that millions will simply cease to obey the facist totalitarian rules which no longer make sense. Luckily, Montana has pretty much averted the pandemic and we did not have to bear arms just to eat lunch. The people here wisely disputed long ago that living in populated, drug infested, crime ridden, virus incubators, governed by liberal Democrats is a good idea. We are free in Montana, at least I am. I never felt threatened by goofy government officials. I was free (but encouraged otherwise) not to invite my friends to love on them. I chose freedom, and so did they. We laughed, sang, and prayed together. We went on hikes, ate pizza and pastries, even eventually got to drink a beer, eat out, and yes, sit down inside at our favorite restaurant. “The Big Scare” is over for us.

“We will not live in your fear!”

Bob Graham

Our friends left us today and they have left us better people. If you are a “not at risk person,” I encourage you to invite some friends over, take a risk. CNN and the Democrat party has lost its fight with us, we know your game. Howl all you wish Don Lemon, whine all you can Nancy Pelosi, threaten and tell us we are deplorable, but we do not trust you. We trust in God, we love our neighbors, and we will not live in your fear!

P.s. Pray for my brother in Christ Jimmy and his lovely wife Genevieve, that their days ahead will be filled with joy.
