“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7.
In the blood of the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world. In the hands of Him whom gives life freely to all those who desire to enter an eternal peace. And in the power of His Holy Spirit to baptize sinners in His blessed flames of mercy… I greet you in the majestic name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! For “out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treads the winepress and fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His vesture and on His thigh written. KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS…and in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever”. Revelation 19:15-16; Daniel 2:44. The days are fast approaching when the Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha Meshiah) will establish His kingdom of peace and everlasting life, and the call to enter that kingdom has come for those committed to cementing a relationship sealed in love with His majesty the Son of God. Rivers as clear as pure crystal is the inheritance of all the righteous who enter it, and may God help all those who find this site take it seriously. May all those whom call on the name of the Lord be saved in that coming kingdom. Joel 2:32. May we be involved in all manner of prayer, and receiving guidance and insight from “God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraids not and it shall be given him” I present to you The Exquisite Writer! Exquisite because it’s beautiful to write praise worthy things about our great and mighty God. May these pages provide foresight to true believers who seek God’s word for “where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law happy is he”. We live during a time when the Lord instructs us to “Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things” and “hold fast to that which is good”.
She is as the paradox of East Africa, or the punctual syntax in a statement that carries the presupposition that all African nations are failed states. Animated black panther manufactured from sparkling porcelain with a golden collar laced with spectacular emeralds around her neck. It provides light for a glimmer of hope in international studies. As a paradigm that will rest in the midday shade, and a short sprint of economic burst to start the day. The nation rests in the branches like a success in comparison to her geographical neighbors. The collar tends to serve as a sort of tracking device to monitor the economic expansion of her GDP. According to World Bank figures, with a population of 45.55 million denizens, and a GDP of $60.94 billion dollars, Kenya is certainly a hit by African standards. She is tantamount to a Third World nation’s success story in Sub-Saharan Africa, and her annual fiscal growth is expected to project a real GDP growth rate at 3.8% which is higher than most African nations. That track is expected to continue towards the 2017 period. Of the 54 nations the continent hosts, Kenya has traditionally been one of the blessed African nations: For the best part of its existence, the country has not been compelled to budget its resources to fight an internal rebellion. That has changed. GDP per capita income is $694 (USD). According to the World Gold Council, which measures gold reserves for Kenya, their amount stands at 0.03% tonnes.
The chief exports are predominantly agriculture products, and they include goods based on horticulture and tea. An expanded list must consider coffee, tea, textiles, petroleum, iron, steel, and cement. Major trading partners involve trading with the United States, the UK, Pakistan, the Netherlands, and the surrounding East African nations of Uganda and Tanzania. $45966.00 million in KES (Kenyan shillings) is the actual figure in trade exports. Primary imports are mostly machinery imports pertaining to transportation equipment, motor vehicles, steel, resin, and iron. Other important imports are petroleum and plastics. Major import trading partners are Saudi Arabia, India, the United States, China, South Africa, the UAE, and Japan. $144039.00 million KES (Kenyan shillings) is the actual figure in trade imports, while the current figure for external debt is $1361.00 billion (KES).
Kenya, like any other nation also has its share of problems. In July 2014 inflationary levels stood at a high 8.36%, but today nearly a year later that rate is down to 7.03%; however, food inflation is 13.39%, which is slightly up from a previous 13.2% (+1.44). Unemployment levels are at a high 40%, and poverty levels hover at 45.9% overall, which is, of course significantly high. Life expectancy is near 62 years old. To enjoy the benefits of better economic conditions education is a must, and Kenya has one of the highest scholastic enrollments in Africa at 114%. As a nation, Kenya is considered lower middle income. In order to track the performance of large companies in Kenya, the Nairobi Securities Exchange 20 (NSE20) is used as an indicator, and the current stock market index is 4539.47, which is down from 4578.62, and for now it is still sliding down (It has its fluctuating periods of peak performances).
The primary purpose for President Barack Obama’s trip to Kenya was to discuss security issues, and the need for the government to focus on combatting corruption. During his discussion with his Kenyan counterpart, President Uhuru Kenyatta, stood unmoved by President Obama’s appeal to allow his nation to ease restrictions on gay rights. Today, gay couples or those accused of homosexuality can be imprisoned in Kenya. Nevertheless, the Kenyan president rightly informed his American counterpart, whom is still considered a local by-product of Kenyan heritage, that there were many more important issues that Kenyans face. Personally, I cannot comprehend why he would mention such a thing, during a major diplomatic discussion of such a magnitude. The poverty rate in Kenya is at 45.9%. Is one supposed to be walking around as hungry unemployed homosexuals?
In the year 2007, Kenyans saw widespread ethnic violence during, and after participation in their presidential elections, which were accused by voters of being rigged. While Kenya has roughly 70 ethnicities, the largest ethnic groups consist of five groups: Kikuyu – 20%, Luhya – 14%, Luo – 13% (The ethnic group that reportedly sponsored Christian prophet Johanwa Owalo, who in 1912, allegedly prophesied a son of Kenyan heritage will cause America to burn), Kalenjin – 11%, and Kamba – 11%. The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) was supported by Luhya, Luo, and Kalenjin groups, but the Party of National Unity (PNU) gained popular support from the Kikuyu ethnic group. On December 27, 2007, voter turn out was at approximately 70% of the legal voting age population, and European Union monitors were on hand to check for a free and fair election. Incumbent President Mwai Kibaki, of the PNU was reportedly losing the vote to ODM leader Raila Odinga (a first cousin of U.S. President Barack Obama). Yet, Samuel Kivuitu, Kenya’s Electoral Commission Chairman, announced President Mwai Kibaki, as the presidential legal winner on December 30, 2007. EU monitors felt ODM figure Raila Odinga, had been cheated of the election result, and apparently his supporters agreed. Widespread fratricidal ethnic violence, and murders plagued supporters of both political parties, and Kenyan police were also accused in taking part in much of the violence.
International observers on human rights, the United Nations Security Council, The International Criminal Court in the Hague, the African Union, and several other prominent international organizations pressured the political parties to end the violence, and the judicial-political process in Kenya introduced a series of reforms to prevent election oriented violence to ever commence in Kenya again. However, the ICC eventually brought criminal charges against the “Ocampo Six” which was portrayed as instigating the violence. At one point, the ICC even ignored disagreement with the UNSC to pursue the charges. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta (the son of Kenya’s founding father whom was the first president of the nation), was also one of the Kenyan Ocampo Six, and he fought the charges for years. On December 14, 2014, the charges against him by the ICC were finally dropped. He was also declared the free and fair winner in the 2014 elections in Kenya.
Why did President Obama visit Kenya now as opposed to before? I believe he answered that a few years ago. In 2009, during a visit to Ghana to meet with his Ghanian counterpart President John Atta Mills, President Obama said, “We think Ghana can be a measure of extraordinary success throughout the continent”. Later, in an interview with AllAfrica.com he declared, “For many years we made excuses about corruption, or poor governance insisting this was somehow the consequence of neocolonialism, or the West has been oppressive, or racism”. In other words, President Obama shuns those nations that engage in what is perceived as senseless violence from those who lack the basic intellectual discourse to peacefully handle disputes via negotiated settlements. On Saturday July 11, 2009 he said in his address to Ghana’s parliament “It is easy to point fingers, and to pin the blame for these problems on others. Yes, a colonial map that made little sense bred conflict, and the West has often approached Africa as a patron, rather than a partner. But the West is not responsible for the destruction of the Zimbabwean economy over the last decade, or wars in which children are enlisted as combatants.” When addressing the reason he chose Ghana to visit, and not Kenya he further explained. “Here in Ghana, you show us a face of Africa that is too often overlooked by a world that sees only tragedy or the need for charity. The people of Ghana have worked hard to put democracy on a firmer footing, with peaceful transfers of power even in the wake of closely contested elections. And with improved governance and an emerging civil society, Ghana’s economy has shown impressive rates of growth.” President Obama believes Kenya has finally reached that level of acceptability when it concentrates on economic growth, democratic ideals, and stabilizing its markets to attract investment, but it must continue to shun war, instability, and corruption which retards fiscal growth.
As for Kenya and Ethiopia, a letter signed by 13 signatories sponsored by Amnesty International stated, “Both countries face real security threats but we are concerned by the way in which each government has responded, often with abusive security measures and increased efforts to stifle civil society and independent media.” The letter went on to state there is a need to “address both new and longstanding challenges with which the country continues to grapple – from security force impunity and the need for criminal justice reforms, to an increasingly restrictive environment for media and civil society, and growing pressure on Kenya’s Somali refugee population and its Muslim communities.” I imagine this is a portion of the corruption President Obama recognized worth mentioning. If the aforementioned reports are accurate, both countries have reasons for behaving in this way.
In October of 2011, Kenya sent soldiers across the border to battle al-shabab militants, after accusing the group of kidnapping Kenyans. In 2012, the Somali based Islamic terror group Al-Shabaab (The Youth – A splinter group from the ‘Islamic Courts Union’ whose members were defeated by a joint Somali-Ethiopian military venture in 2006) publicly declared its allegiance to Al-Qaeda. The group has since instigated a series of high-profile attacks in Kenya and Ethiopia. The most notorious of these attacks came when they sent in teams of terror cells to attack the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. The group claimed responsibility for the attack on September 21, 2013. The town of Mpeketoni, was another place the group attacked in a two day siege that led to the slaying of 60 people from the Kikuyu ethnic group. The murdered were believed to have been killed as a symbolic strike against the ethnic group of President Uhuru Kenyatta. The latest attack was on July 07, 2015, in the Kenyan town of Soko Mbuzi, of Northern Kenya, where the group is believed to be responsible for killing 14 Kenyans. Al-Shabab is also known for murdering Christians in cold blood after separating, and singling out known Christian worshippers from other groups. The last presidential strong man in Somalia was the government of President Muhammad Siad Barre, and since his fall in 1991, Kenya has taken in many ethnic Somali refugees. I imagine they are tested in government sponsored campaigns to root out suspected collaborators of the Al-Shabab group.
Last, President Obama pledged support towards counter terrorism efforts, but stated “If in reaction to terrorism, you’re restricting legitimate organizations, reducing the scope of peaceful organization, then that can have the inadvertent effect of increasing the pool of recruits for terrorism.” I really hope not! President Obama seemed to have a good time with family members he knew, and some he never met before. Good! Some Kenyans felt critical that he waited for so long to visit the nation that bore his paternal family, and some even felt President Bush contributed much more towards Africa’s medical and economic development. I second that. Security concerns forbade him to visit the village his father is from. However, before he moves on to Ethiopia, he gives Kenya a big emotional hug. She is as the paradox of East Africa, or the punctual syntax in a statement that carries the presupposition that all African nations are failed states. Animated black panther manufactured from sparkling porcelain with a golden collar laced with spectacular emeralds around her neck. It provides light for a glimmer of hope in international studies. As a paradigm that will rest in the midday shade, and a short sprint of economic burst to start the day. The nation rests in the branches like a success in comparison to her geographical neighbors. She is the Republic of Kenya.

Donald Trump: The Capricious Bad Boy Of The Republican Party
Jul 6, 2015
They didn’t want to call him “The Donald” because they did not want to. They did not mean to call him at all. He indicated he is running to make America great again. He is dubbed “clown” by major news outlets. Could he become the Grand Slam player in the tuxedo of unpredictability to accurately manipulate the laws of probability, and win the presidency of the United States of America?
The wild card ace up the sleeve of a predicament, the glamourous town car of the debonair politician, the hint of the billionaire boys club, and my fellow native New Yorker that drives away from the alleged Rockefellas New World Order plans. He reportedly is pro-life. He believes marriage is between one man and one woman. He is the one that dares to defy those who constructed the highways, and frowns upon the international pavement that led to the controversial economic conclave called NAFTA. The thumb of a contentious relationship goes underneath the chin, and the back of the other fingers go underneath the lip as he ponders counter punches against a list of growing rivals, whom are called upon by Hispanic communities to combine their voices to force him out. Not too many years ago. Mexico’s own former leader, President Vicente Fox, spoke out in a racial diatribe against the black American community, who held no ill will against him before his vociferous saber rattle. As a Christian, I believe that we should forgive a man who asked for it, but that doesn’t mean we can’t mention it. The true lion will get his mane mangled in the battle and fight on, and after intermittent quarrels with President Obama for many years, this time his presidential run is no mere publicity stunt. It is a unique growl to expose the numerous clans of hyenas who come in from all directions, and challenge the pride in the midst of its territory. There will still be those who admire a noble fight. The list of antagonists will grow, and the courage of the cubs will stir. Dark clouds gather on the horizon to signify a mysterious presence is mounting, as upcoming days in this world grow darker by the passing years. Some spectators will choose to enter the battle with night vision. Moved by emotion for his speaking out in favor of the Kate Steinle family pain, and having positioned themselves in a shared visceral agreement with the man at the helm who boast a treasure chest of $8.7 billion dollars in assets to fight back (Forbes magazine and others lower that amount), the lionesses of the people will offer their support, and now they also will enter the field of battle: The Donald is rising fast in the opinion polls.
Not all lions specialize as large game hunters, and some have even been seriously injured if not outright killed hunting larger game. Nonetheless, the urge to dine on the spoils of the prey is real, and the goal for victory with an aim to rebuild the American military is clear. Building more jobs is an added promise not to mention a benefit. This is a battle of wits, fear, bravery, the foolhardy, courage, and the ferocity of lawsuits: NBC, Rapper Flo-Rida, Macys, Univision, NASCAR, Golf Tournament’s PGA (and similar groups), and Serta all pulled out of contributing their talents to be associated with anything having to do with Donald Trump. This is the type of battle we’re at this time. Jeannie Mai, is like the leopardess who stayed in the tree, pointed her ears backwards, growled, flicked her pretty lil tail, and then stood her ‘ground’. It is wrong that those women who go to compete in the Miss Universe beauty pageant should have to pay a price, because of a political situation in which they had no control. They didn’t insult anyone, and they shouldn’t be penalized for others. They groomed their physical appearance to appear beautiful, they studied on how to answer tricky questions, they practiced how to walk and how to talk, and now it was in vain? That should not be. Paulina Vega, the reigning Miss Universe denounced Trump’s comments. ‘The Reelz’ cable TV station entered the scene with a ground for explanations as they appealed to the public to hear them out. And they were wise enough to take a camera crew with them in the jeep. That’s how you film the beauty contestants strut their lil beauty contestant stuff for public consumption. Is he a wounded lion on the prowl? In accordance with the laws of contrition, that either makes him more deadly to his opponents, or he will be the resilient benefactor. Not all lions specialize as larger game hunters, but they will on occasion battle one another for ultimate supremacy. So, some lions (but not all) will specialize as the elephant hunters on the plains. He is a member of the Grand Old Party, and they are the elephants in the area of the battle. Lions have manes and he is different from the others. There are particular news Reporters who will patrol the battle field, spit graffiti on the rocks like cobras, and instigate the contestants feud away from the important issues of repairing the fiscal situation at hand. The Donald doesn’t “think much of Bush” who in return “didn’t think much of Donald” either. Rosie O’ Donell can sit this one out. Cher didn’t consider much of Donald either. The lionesses who reside near the southern border of the pride territory, and feel the cringe of the hyenas closing in will feel “who cares”! They want something done. They just have to live there. Do you? They feel they finally have a candidate willing to confront the problem head on, and speak up about it. He does not come with lobbyist, and he comes with his own money supply to finance his own campaign. Would it be naive to believe he is not vulnerable to outside pressure? Particular branches of Native American tribes watch like weakened meerkats waiting for the next batch of hyenas fixated on crossing their reservation to move in on the pride. Can we or should we remember that the man who currently occupies the White House had raised much of his own money via means outside the conventional wisdom this electoral system had to offer? Do you believe President Barack Obama, is running every administrative mechanism of his own accord? Is he ever under external (or internal) pressure to make deals, and produce results? I’m not merely referring to here at home, but this question also pertains to U.S. interest abroad.
However, it is true that there are hyenas of illegal immigration who come from around the world, and roam the borders of the pride’s territory, and far too many times they live different from the pride. Some will on occasion enter the territory uninvited, and will quarrel with the pride for bones to crush, while laughing with the vultures who eat the marrow. Our SCOTUS, is as the bald eagles who have given the hyenas a license to vote in our elections. Hyenas come in from all areas of the world. They will not always assimilate into the culture, but they want to be one with the money. Who is the true God? They snicker and choose mammon. According to the Laws of Probability several multi-millionaires, and millionaires tend to make the presidential list viz a viz the economic times, but billionaires are a rare commodity to make the presidential list. The pride on the other hand, will far to many times allow the elevation of the clan in it’s own territory, because they want to remove the border, and merge the territory of the clan with the territory of the pride to create one international assignment within the context of global ramifications. Revelation 13:11-18. Today, the example you see in this form, sits on the other side of the Atlantic ocean. But another lion arose. His roar doesn’t sound like the others, and he is regarded as an invader in his own territory. His strategy? I don’t know. Let’s speculate. 1) He kills off enough elephants, and continues to rise in the ranks, and finally targets the jackass in the Democratic party. 2) In his race for the finish line, he roars one to many times, and makes a liable mistake (Did he already?), like the last billionaire (who was taken seriously) who rose in the ranks, and withdrew to the disappointment of his supporters: H. Ross Perot. 3) The chorus of voices in the Republican party, and business leaders grows, which causes him to succumb to the pressure, and he withdraws altogether (we in New York just saw this in the form of another New Yorker, Anthony Weiner). 4) Eventually, he catches a break when another “breaking news” story slows down the momentum of people requesting he drop out of the race as a presidential candidate. This distraction could allow him the breathing space to continue his move forward. 5) He falsely believes controversy helps him ride the surface of the wave, but lacks talking sufficiently about the definitions for solving the jobs, education, economic, rail and road, bridge and tunnel, national security, and other issues of importance to American citizens (I know… I know… he’s working on smoothing out the racial controversy now). 6) Living in wealth he forgets there are still Occupy Wall Street type people in the world who resent the wealthy, and with promises of more job creation, can he connect with them to win over votes? If the Occupy Wall Street people, and the Tea Party people ever concentrated on their similarities, and united on those fronts, and focused less on their differences, they could be a serious force to contend with. 7) He finally apologizes and I do not know exactly what he does from there. 8) The media or other forces that disagree with Donald Trump will seek to dig up some scandalous dirt on Donald Trump no matter how far back they need to dig TO MAGNIFY RECYCLED INFORMATION (think Herman Cain or the need to mar his business reputation for questionable dealings. Will he get pass the McCain comments?). 9) It is a pity that I don’t hear anyone asking. Who the Christian candidate? As far as I am concerned, God is the most important Figure in any race for president anywhere. Is the Jeremiah Wright incident the reason for this? Or have we simply moved into a time where influential atheism is being used as a device to weed out those opposed to issues considered vices by biblical standards. Is this being done to move forward in the transgression of God’s moral laws? Christians are required to pray always. If we do not even notice it, Who will?
Will Donald Trump win the presidency of the United States? We’re living in strange times with unforeseen events moving rapidly, and while it may not be likely, it’s definitely possible. President Barack Obama has proven it’s for God to determine for His own reasons, and for His own purpose. That’s my answer. This is William Tisdale. This Is The Exquisite Writer.
Update 07/08/2015 – The RNC has officially called on Donald Trump to tone down his rhetoric.
Update 07/10/2015 – Donald Trump holds press conferences in Los Angeles with Americans who vent their frustration that not enough is being done to stop illegal immigrants, who have harmed, or even killed Americans. This is his way of showing off the families of victims to connect with the common man, and demonstrate he understands their frustrations. It may work in the short run, but to win a higher office he must at some point further transition to various wave lengths, and demonstrate he also understands other issues that for now has received less media attention (See number 5 above). I expect that to happen at some point. The calculation and timing must be correct.
Update 07/21/2015 – Ohio Governor Kasich (R) enters the GOP race, and he becomes the 16th contender to gain the Republican nomination for president. Senator Lindsey Graham publicly declares Donald Trump does not have to be “the world’s biggest jackass” just because he’s running for president. Trump replies by refering to Senator Graham as an “idiot”, and then provides his personal cellphone number on live television. The Senator’s phone begins ringing off the hook.
***Update – Often times when threatened by predators, elephants will herd around their young to protect them. When the upcoming Republican debate happens, Will we see traditionally seasoned Republican politicians rally in an alliance to attack Donald Trump, for the sake of protecting the establishment, to isolate, and force him from the race? The elephant that can provoke the lion into attacks, can become better known than it’s rivals.
Update – 07/23/2015 Donald Trump threatens a 3rd party run, if he feels the RNC is being unfair to him. The Count? 2 Jackasses, 15 Elephants & 1 Lion, and/or potentially 1 Lion as a 3rd party candidate (if Donald Trump decides to leave the Republican Party).

On Friday, the 26th day of the month of June, in the year of 2015, there occurred a strange sequence of historically significant, intersecting events which inevitably played across American television screens. Events which seemed more like the the nation was mesmerized over the beautifully interwoven patterns on the back of a very cunning, and quite remarkably elusive death adder coming to bite their children, as opposed, to the silent killer that snuck in the bedroom where the crib sits in the cross path. You want a word of advice reader? Here it is…When you play with the serpent, it would be wise to allow the Riki Tiki Tavi of sound biblical judgement to enter that game of death. If not, things can go horribly wrong in a candid lapse of judgement, as you reply to that beguiling hiss of unreasoning suggestion. A slithering idea that proceeds to slide through your mental faculties, and hide the point, purpose, and ulterior motive of an opponent set to entrap with a seductive accord in the crevices of your psychological facilities. He has done so since the cradle of human civilization. So you grab that idea in a clutch, as you are lured to enter the opening entrances of the evil eyes of hell itself. Indeed, strange things can happen in a short period of time. Judas Iscariot dined with the Lord Jesus, and the other disciples, but a short time later he sold Jesus out. First comes the attraction, and then there is the deliverance after the lunge. Fangs spring open to enter the arena of battle, and finally a nasty venomous bite will be delivered after the recoil. Somebody else had to write something about this right? Right! Then I’ll write! Write? Yes!
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. It’s also a time for ALL churches in America, and I mean both small and large to mount cameras outside the church buildings, and inside the church buildings to witness any perilous conditions taking place on the grounds of the church sanctuary. With external terrorist groups repeatedly attacking Christians around the globe, and internal threats developing an inclination to commit acts of violence against the churches, it’s time for the Christian community in America to establish a set of extra security measures to help facilitate the warding off of evil, so that the majority of Christian fellowships can experience a harmonious environment free from extremist entities during our coming together to worship God. If churches are able to mount cameras to boost security measures for congregants, at least two considerations must be taken into account. 1) There needs to be legislation introduced by political representation of given communites, so that such cameras will not be used by government agencies to compromise freedom of worshippers for surveillance of Christians who disagree with public policies (Edward Snowden had a good point). 2) Also, cameras need to have properly installed firewall systems (depending on the type of cameras used), so that hackers cannot take advantage, and utilize surreptitious electronic surveillance methods to exploit loop holes to ‘do something’.
Moreover, I would like to commend Governor Nikki Haley (R), for initiating the necessary political process to remove the Confederate flag from South Carolina’s state capital building. As I tweeted previously, thank you for demonstrating a sensitive side with your tears in the evidence box. Congressman James Clyburn (D), and Senator Lindsey Graham (R) should also be recognized for taking a brave step forward in understanding the need to specify, and remove a symbol that blinds people to the need to unite people to expand beyond the discord of racial strife. Racist mass murderer Dylan Roof, exploited such a symbol to the extreme. Today in America there is a need to center around the pivot of racial peace and harmony. As a Christian, I would be lying to God, to myself, and to you the reader, and anyone else if I cannot love beyond the greater, or lesser percentage of pigmentation enveloped to determine another human beings skin color. All humans are 99.9% genetically related to one another, and that means biologically speaking, we are all genetic cousins without the gibberish of nonsensical interpretations of an imaginary caste system which subtly hints we are the products of IQs which measure the technological innovations, and progress of our rise based on the demographic achievement scales of our ethnic communities beyond other ethnic communities. God calls on His people to have humility, and if you truly are a Christian, Where did the humility go (1 Peter 5:5-7)? I commend those South Carolinian politicians who sought to come together in one bipartizan accord to send a message to hate groups that their intolerance fell one step short, and that true Christian communities across America, climbed that bridge to be in one character with the God Who molds them to climb a few steps higher. “I FORGIVE YOU” was the resounding message from the congregants of the historic Mother Emmanuel AME Church of Charleston, South Carolina. It was a message that reverberated a two months prior message of Judy Scott, the Christian South Carolinian mother of Walter Scott, whose unarmed son was slain by Officer Michael Slager during a traffic stop. It was the message of Jesus.
Scripture states “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” and “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” Matthew 6:12, 14-15. If I’m understanding this right, if you are unforgiving you die in your sins. People are not sent to hell because of their sins since Jesus is the living remedy Who paid the price to have that sin eradicated from anyone who accepts Him. Jesus is the sin bearer for those who accept His sacrifice, and shed blood on the cross, but if He is not your sin bearer, what does that mean for you? You go to hell! Question? If we are talking about race, were publicly broadcasted acts of forgiveness from southern states like South Carolina, and Florida before it, understood by the secularized masses of Americans who heard that message? Or will there always be those who shift blame, or seek to justify racially motivated acts of inhumanity away from a conscious, or subconscious perception to suppress feelings of guilt? Will recollections of previous incidents of a racial nature surface as a cause to deem any racial violence as a justified tit for tat based on racial stereotypes, or pseudo impressions of a rising threat to their economic, or social standing, or a given community in society? Would it be necessary that the Spirit of Jesus indwell blacks to forgive perceived wrongs committed by whites, and that the same Spirit of Jesus indwell whites to feel remorse towards any perceived wrongs toward blacks? Or perceived to have been committed by blacks?
For instance, I don’t care what racial affiliation you identify with, but if you are rich and famous and you have problems in your marriage, and you truly still love one another, don’t let the news media find out, or they will assist the expedient culmination of your marriage in Divorce court. Scripture states “If a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself” Galatians 6:3. If we allow him to get us to harbor feelings of hate, and bitterness he has accomplished a great deal. Former President Bush said. “You’re either on our side, or you’re with the terrorist”. Who are the first terrorists ever? “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and satan (deliberate small “d” and “s”), which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”. Revelation 12:9. There never will be a real Helter Skelter, there is, however, ‘devil’. That’s the hidden war. Get it? The true war is in our minds, and that war is a psycho-spiritual war. A war to keep the devil out, and to keep the holy Spirit of love in. When you harbor intense anger and bitterness, because of perceived wrongs, it’s time to rent a comedy dvd, or do something to help you (and me) come back in from the cold. We can and should be angry at certain things in life depending on the morality involved in the biblical foundation we (or at least I) stand on. In such a circumstance the bible ‘commands’ us to “Be ye angry, AND SIN NOT: let NOT the sun go down upon your wrath (eventually Christians should seek to find a way via praying to God about it, or another way to try and sooth that anger away. We should pray to God for help to do so, because He promised to direct our steps when we submit to Him. Proverbs 3:5-6).
If we persist in harboring resentment then comes the next verse: Neither give place to the devil. Or in other words, holding an abundance of anger attracts evil spirits to keep you stayed that way. When you’re angry with the devil, he is happy, and when you’re happy the devil is not pleased. If possible be happy inside LOVE. God is Love. 1 John 4:7.
I really liked President Obama’s eulogy, and I respect the office of the presidency of the United States of America. It doesn’t matter what political party the president is officially elected from to lead the nation (provided that person is not a homicidal maniac, impeachable, or to loony to take seriously), because I believe the three branches of government should be taken seriously and respected. That’s the holy bible. 1 Peter 2:13-17. You can read my ‘The Prophecy Page III: Elections’ article in your spare time if you want, and I’ll have more to say about that later down the road in a different format. He spoke of God’s grace. Cool! No problem there. God’s grace is freely given to those who love Him enough to accept it. However, respecting the official capacity of the presidency does not mean I must agree with the President.
I William Tisdale, will also salute Supreme Court Justices like Clarence Thomas, Justice Anthony Scalia, and the dissenting views of Justice Roberts, for recognizing the error of those who choose to transgress the biblically based platform for marriage to be between one man and one woman. The decision to make gay marriage the law of the land will be the next phase in a satanic tidal wave of war against the Christian church of the Lord Jesus Christ. I already wrote about this matter in my article entitled “The Prophecy Page IX – The Risk of Same Sex Marriage in America”, and the link is on this page. Jesus said, “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all”. Luke 17: 28-29. It rained fire and brimstone, because of the lust for same sex sexual pleasure, and the other crimes, such as, idolatry being committed, and built up for a God of love with all power for all judgement to reply with harsh and destructive consequences.
Mr. President, Mr. President you are equipped with words of delight, words of grace, words of outrage, words of abomination, and like peelings off the ol’ orange the other supreme court justices chose to follow your poor judgement, and that’s why we of the household of faith must trust in a higher court with superior judgement where the first, and the last Word will make a lasting impression. “AND TO MAKE ALL MEN SEE WHAT IS THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY, WHICH FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD HATH BEEN HID IN GOD, WHO CREATED ALL THINGS BY JESUS CHRIST” Ephesians 3:9. Today the confederate flag must come down, because it’s seen as racist, but will it be the halt to the printing of the bible tomorrow, because it’s viewed as hateful towards gays, since the powers that be want to bring the world together as one? If there is ever an effort by American or international authorities to seek to ban the KJV holy bible, or any other portion of the Word of God based on the actions of this LGBT movement, may every left leaning Christian Democrat who agreed with the actions of this president remember this day. Remember you were silent when the world needed a voice to fight this hate for true biblical standards. With groups like ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda, and others on the rampage, the world looks like it’s quickly reversing in terms of the progression of time. The Catholic church once sought to ban the bible with the exception of the hierarchy, during a time when Europe practiced decapitations via guillotines. The spiritual forces of darkness are actively running things now, and the only real opposition to that is the indwelt, Holy Spirit movement of praying believers in the church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For now, churches and other religious bodies can’t be compelled to marry anyone they choose not to marry, but for how long till there are those who will come with a cycle of harassment against such religious bodies? Are these people going to form their own church bodies? Or will their insistence on entering the programs of Christians who shun this behavior be a hidden, and potentially overt motivation to sue the churches for refusing to perform same sex marriages at some point? And if they are the victors in a court under accusations that the church discriminates against them, Is the next phase to block churches from receiving government financial assistance? In short, I believe homosexuals and lesbians are going to try to destroy whole churches. The rainbow is a beautiful creation of God. It was given to man as a promise from God that He would never use water to flood, and cause the destruction of the world again. They perverted that beautiful bow. The fire next time.
They want to be compared to the civil rights marches? For the hundred millionth time, black people have no choice in being black. How can a man go and publicly perform a national eulogy in the afternoon, and praise God for His great grace, and by the end of the day celebrate the transgression of God’s commands in an immoral praise to declare, “When all Americans are treated equal, we are more free”. He was then rudely interrupted, and heckled at a press conference by one of the very people he sought to set free. Christians are God’s witnesses, but that was like witnessing jester vs jester in a satanically inspired public farce. Maybe the heckler felt he was entitled to more than freedom, because he feels he’s better than other people. If gays have no choice in being gay, Mr. President, Why did you want a halt to ‘conversion therapy’ for confused participants? How come people who abandoned that lifestyle, and went straight, never come up in the propaganda dubbed ‘statistics’ that provide us a glimpse of opinions by Americans who support this lifestyle? You really do seem to be comparing them to black people in that sense: once you go gay you never go back! Goooooooo Caitlyn! I stop watching ‘The Jerry Springer Show’ many years ago. I couldn’t take it anymore. Yet, I watched Jerry on ‘Dancing With the Stars’, because Jerry was brought under control. The U.S. Supreme Court was wrong on abortion as well, and millions of lives have been incinerated, due to the infamous 1973 hearing on Roe vs Wade. So, on Friday, not the 13th, but the 26th day of the month of June, 2015 the United States Supreme Court has finalized this sinful practice, and the resultant potential ceremony to be the law of the land in all 50 states. I have no problem loving people, but in accordance with biblical teaching I must recognize sin as sin, and homosexuality is a sin, whereas, the sinner needs to repent, and a sin the true Christian needs to avoid (for church groups who sponsor prison ministries, somebody needs to get this message there too). Lastly, I would not be surprised if before year’s end, God responds in a supernatural way to send a strong message to the government regarding His displeasure with this recent ruling. That is all I will say on this issue, since my aforementioned article goes deeper into it. God bless you.

The Question Of Illegal Immigration America
The question becomes. What are the true unemployment statistics in the USA? Hopefully, I can come up with an answer. In August of 2014, according to Louis Efron, a contributing Writer for Forbes Magazine, it was widely reported by federal agencies (for example, The U.S. Bureau For Labor Statistics – BLS) that the figure for the unemployed was 6.2% – 08/20/2014, while the true number was reported at 12.6%. About 9 months prior to this rate Barbara Boland, wrote a piece for CNS News that placed the government rate at 7.3%, and the true figures at 13.8%. Both Researchers used information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to indicate the marginalized real rates for a true number of those unemployed. So, What is the true unemployment figure? The government officially reported the unemployment figure at 5.5%, while the true figure is currently 10.6% as of April 2015 (I have encountered the arguments of those who suggests those figures can be inflated to be as high as 17%). It is this 10.6% figure that takes into account those whom are unemployed, due to government institutions regarding them as not being considered for individuals actively seeking work. Such persons are perceived as potential workers who dropped out of the labor force under the self-professed belief that an overwhelming labor shortage exist that lacks the functionality to accommodate their integration into the labor market.
As a domestic born and bred American citizen, I could still recollect the days in my later teens, and early twenties, when businesses trained entry level workers, and/or interns to elevate their assets to perform their duties at a certain skill level. During the early 1980’s, I witnessed a series of machinations invented involving various robotic technologies meant, and installed into American industries to de-skill the work force which gradually ruined the previous ease that workers found at finding employment. It was a revolution of technocrats that hurt the integration of job seekers into the career centers of America’s northern cities: One example would be the miniscule amount of bank tellers as operatives as replaced by the permeation of ATM machines instead. Take those ATM machines for example, some business leaders argue that outsourcing work to foreign enterprises to be manufactured at a cheaper rate will help the American job market in the long run, because the revenue generated by the goods will be used in the economic recovery of America to create more jobs here at home. Is there any guarantee the revenue will be used for that purpose? In a study conducted by Michael Pence, a Nobel Prize winning Economist, of the 27 million jobs created by companies involving international trade from 1990-2008, only 2% were created by such companies.
Apparently, since the last three decades, America has dealt with an emerging illegal immigration crisis which has accumulated to burden America’s economy, in terms of a never ending cycle of supply and demand to get the good out of the place: the job supply part is the problem. Today, we have a president who threatens to utilize the hammer of executive orders to nail together a framework to either appease foreign leaders, or grant amnesty for undocumented people whom are not born in America, because of the bellicose tone of the local leadership representing these communities. I don’t know what the hell the president is doing, but I do know he is not as naive at doing what he is doing while he does what he is doing.
As a young college student, I once had a College professor who declared to the students. “There is enough room to accommodate all of us”. No, actually there’s not. I really don’t think there is when I think about it. Today, I look retrospectively and feel the prof was lying, because the classroom was filled with people who wanted to hear the professor say precisely what he said. I sometimes get the feeling the nation was invaded, and America is now being groomed by a backward Jupitonian version of the United States of America. Don’t worry about it, because it’s just a feeling I get every now and then. For instance, let’s take this verse from the holy bible, and apply it to modern day America, and it’s possible some of you who were born in America, and have patriotic proclivities may get that feeling too. It could be just me, but the verse states, “The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail”. Deuteronomy 28:43-44. Once we had a very generous foreign aid package, but today we have an 11 trillion dollar trade deficit. Recently, some South Africans living in areas of destitution in their own nation rioted, and government authorities forcibly quelled the violence with law enforcement personnel, because the strangers from the surrounding nations were getting up above them “very high” in the job market, and they could not compete against what was happening; therefore, they took to violence to vent their frustrations. You the reader may ask, Why does he have to write about that? Why does he select such a sensitive topic? Because I have to fill blog space that’s why.
Why write something if you don’t have solutions to offer? Good question. That brings me to think about something. But first I have to unveil some more research work. According to various sources here are the top 5 cities with the slowest economic growth indexes in America for 2013. The expected decrease in economic growth as projected towards 2014 is also indicated:
1) Steubenville – Weirton OH & WV – Retraction 2.2% From 2.6%
2) Layetteville – LA Retraction 2.1% From 3.2%
3) Yuma – AZ Retraction 1.3% From 3.2%
4) Decatur – IL Retraction 0.8% From 4.8%
5) Shreveport-Bosseir City – LA Retraction 1.6% From 5.2%
The five cities above are merely examples to justify a suggestion. Personally, I do not believe the argument that foreign immigration is necessary to offset an aging American population that lacks the manpower via a younger generation to operate the jobs. I view that argument as nonsense. The American economy was the greatest in the world prior to the second world war, and in the contemporary era we only began seriously faltering after a massive immigration to the tune of 11-20 million undocumented aliens who began arriving here. I find it difficult to believe 300 million Americans could not be trained to do any job in the nation without having help from some place else. Moreover, at times the senior citizen population has to be convinced to retire from employment they held for many years. Personally, I view those people who come here as undocumented aliens as law breakers and criminals, because they broke the laws to do so. All nations have immigration laws and anyone who chooses to dispute that please go penetrate the internationally recognized borders of the Islamic Republic of Iran, or the geo-political boundaries of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea without prior government permission from the authorities of the respective countries involved and see what happens. If they obtain the opportunity to do so, they can email me their experiences. With such massive undocumented illegal people here, it’s like a diplomatic precedent has been opened via customary international law. If one is claiming they came to America, due to being a refugee, I can see two justifications for that claim, and both involve international law (I believe most people came here to earn a buck): 1) The 1967 Protocol Relating To The Status of Refugees; and 2) the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating To The Status of Refugees. Does anyone believe the 11-20 million undocumented aliens who came to America within the last 30 years fits into any one of these two categories? Both internationally recognized treaties rely heavily on protection from persecution, or prosecution for religious, political, or other activities deemed violent to refugees.
The plight of the Christian community in Syria (or certain areas of Pakistan) would justifiably benefit from the relief of such internationally recognized treaties. Jesus said, “If when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, til the Son of man be come”. Matthew 10:23. If persecution is too vicious in a given area, and law enforcement is unable, or unwilling to intervene, if possible the persecuted should leave that area, because it may be the best situation for survival. Realizing the brutality and the impact of international images created by ISIS in Libya, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, used warplanes to retaliate against antagonistic jihadist whom expedited a conflict in Libya against Coptic Christian Egyptian citizens. I am no means saying Syria’s war embattled President Bashir Assad, has no crimes in his closet; however, if not for his Shia oriented Baathist Alawite minority run regime, the Christian community in Syria would potentially have collapsed long ago, and suffered the possible nasties of Sharia law.
As for the documented people who come here for reasons pertaining to work-visas, education, etc., Why are they crowded into cities where prosperity is customary, and whose populations are already burgeoning? Once upon a time, I emailed the offices of the two democratic Senators of my state (New York) about this, and failed to receive any feedback at all on my questions. They are Senator’s Charles Schumer (D-NY), and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Albeit, at least Senator Gillibrand’s office did respond by sending me newsletters. Instead of helping the economic situations of the poor, instead, they are giving the perception it’s necessary to be in front of news media cameras worrying about how to help the homosexuals, because that’s what they want to do. Are there no poor homosexuals (Why do they get quazi-preferred attention above other communities? Everyone who needs help needs help)? Jesus let all the world know He had compassion for the poor when He divided the fish and spread the bread.

By utilizing deductive reasoning to fractionalize a particular portion of the immigrant community, since immigrants seem to have to come here, and our government is lax about enforcing the laws already on the books, Why can’t our government intentionally steer those legally recognized immigrants adroit in business skills to those cities where a heavy dose of economic blood is needed to help jump start the local economic spin cycle for that metropolis? After they’re business ventures take off, federal laws should be created by legislatures to compel immigrant business owners with seven or more employees to hire, at least one domestic born American citizen to help stem the percent of unemployment, under-employment, seasonal employment, semi-employment, and part-time employed with a preference for full-time employment in this United States of America. When American companies outsource manufacturing, and other jobs to foreign workers their citizens get the jobs. When they outsource their populations here, Why shouldn’t American citizens get a job (and please don’t say a lot of born, and bred American citizens don’t want to work when I weekly witness hundreds of people competing for one job. Yet, if you don’t think so, I appeal to you to open an account on LinkedIn.com, and you can also witness the quantity of applicants competing for jobs with the data that website creates for public consumption)? What does this do for Americans? It helps put people back to work, and it helps wean people off government subsidies.
How dare William Tisdale (That Exquisite Writer guy) say something like that? It’s about Fair Trade practices not only in the sphere of the economy, but also in the spheres of the religio-cultural phenomena that’s being traded too. Here’s another example. Are America’s Southern Baptist allowed to open multiple church buildings free from fear for Christian worshippers in Saudi Arabia, Iran, or Pakistan? With the recent arrest here in the USA of a trio of Chinese professors who work at Tianjin university involved in the practice of technological espionage, Will China permit foreign people to infiltrate their police, and military agencies, or companies to gather intelligence about their resources to operate against foreign powers, or examine the ingenious inventions of Chinese inventors? Anyone comes here and they go everywhere. Many of these people harbor resentment over America’s wealth, spite over America’s international influence, and some undoubtedly carry treacherous ulterior motives, because they are not the friends of America. The Department of Homeland Security? Perhaps, there should be a registry monitoring system (not those damn suspicious and potentially mark of the beast microchips; although, if the government is overly suspicious of an incoming person’s potentially concealed, pernicious stratagem, maybe that’s the price they pay to come here) for at least the first five-ten years of any newly arrived immigrants with a shady past, or with a questionable motivation to monitor their movements. That list would include but not be limited to those suspected as terrorist, spies, drug dealers, those involved in sexual assaults, and anyone foreign born individual whom served as a conviction for a felony in an overseas detention facility. Yeah, I know. Why won’t industrially advanced societies just keep people like that out altogether. Right? My fellow domestic born Americans (and even kind just want to live a happier life nationalized citizens) apparently this government (and it’s industrialized international clones) seemingly prefers to lose the will to do that, and they want you to lose the will to do that too right along with your second Amendment rights, so you won’t be able to protect yourselves. If you are a true Christian there’s better news: You’re just passing through, and you conclusively serve a higher Master Who is not of this world.
