    • Seems reasonable so I expect some on list will strongly disagree.

    • As a life long United Methodist, I will be the one to say the obvious. Apparently we were not that united.

    • People agreeing to disagree AND going their separate ways.

      There may be a lesson here for the furture of the country.

    • What’s it’s stance on other social issues? Just asking.

      There are many “alienated” Catholics in my acquaintance who have broken away due to politics.

    • So in other words the Methodist Church in the United States is no longer Christian.

      • Half of it is. The traditionalists sound like they are trying to be.

      • That’s for God to decide. But I don’t believe that God will save those who defiantly sin against Him.

    • I showed my children the page in the bible that talks about this. We have a sick society. Just look around at what is being pushed as acceptable.

    • I firmly believe that if all Christians would simply say what the Bible says, and in the Bible’s own words, most, if not all, doctrinal differences would vanish.

      • I somewhat agree but honestly. Few calling themselves Christian know enough of God’s Word The Bible, they can’t do that. Shoot, most Christians think that when you die you immediately go to Heaven or Hell. Most don’t even keep the Sabbath day holy because they think the Sabbath is Sunday.

        • Dave, you’ve mentioned some doctrines, not the actual words in the verses. Yes, most Christians don’t know enough of God’s Word to use His words. But, if those who do study the Word would stop paraphrasing it and use the actual words in the Word, more Christians would start to agree with each other. Using your example, the verses they use to mean the dead go immediately to heaven or hell (or even purgatory) don’t actually say that. They say things like:

          2 Corinthians 5:6:
          Therefore {we are} always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

          Put that together with all the verses that mention the dead and you can let God’s Word speak for itself.

    • They should ostracize those who do not refrain from their sexual activities that are defiantly against God’s Word and let them start their on church. Being homosexual is not a sin. Practicing the acts of homosexuality is.a sin.

    • You are correct, God did not give us religion. He gave us his son and the Holy Spirit so He could save us from ourselves.

    • Hate he sin, love the sinner. Exactly what God does.

    • Dave Hardesty,

      You doubt a bloodless and amicable split? So do I but one can hope.

      Or are you doubting other lessons to be learned? As your other post indicates, there are vast cultural and ideological disagreements which some are willing to violently contest. q.v. Antifa. Look at the Genital here. Do you want to have his ilk taking your money and rights for HIS causes? q.v. CA, IL, NJ, NY, etc.

    • Not only will they be met with a buzzsaw but the US Marines & 82nd Airborne!

    • I say let Iran have Iraq. We cannot help these headchopping savages. Why not let Iran rule these creatures with the only thing they understand. An iron fist and a strong whip hand.

    • Send a message: 50 cruise missiles targeting Iran’s Rev Guard establishments.

    • 100% in favor of a buzz-saw response. Attack US property; embassy, southern border, Antifa Portland ‘demonstration’, and die supporting your stupid and illegal cause.

    • Ahmed al-Assadi, a spokesman for Iraq’s Popular Mobilisation Forces umbrella grouping of Iran-backed militias and a spokesman for Iraq’s Hashed al-Shaabi military force both claim that, “The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani”. Both are Iranian military leaders, in Bagdad.

      It was a targeted attack.

    • Check out the % of votes she’s missed. Oh, and what about all the work she’s not doing while running for something she’ll not achieve. She prob thinks Trump was golfing on 12/31 like the rest of the idiots that fail to fact check. Hey, Amy, Trump’s home happens to be at a golf resort. Look up golf resorts and communities. They actually exist all across our nation. Imagine that!

    • See above.

    • If memory serves me correctly, Obama did the exact same thing. In fact, he was playing golf when an American citizen was being held for ransom and finally beheaded on television..

    • Let him play more. 20% and he’s done more for the US than any president since Regan. If he played 30% just imagine how much better off we would be. Don’t fix things that are not broken.

    • Jealous? If you don’t like Trump or can’t afford to stay/play on one of his properties, don’t go there. But hey, you’re generally confused about everything we don’t listen to your drivel any more.

    • “how many of those visits were his actual home (which happens to have its own golf course)?” Debi

      A few months ago, there was a convention related to his re-election taking place at one of his over-rated hotels. The NORMAL price for one of its rooms is $500. During that convention, the prices were jacked up 13 times to $6,700! That money didn’t go towards his campaign. It went straight into his pocket! The emoluments clause says that doing that is illegal.

      King Donald sells access to himself. He doubled the cost of Mar-a-Lago to $200,000 per year because he sells access to himself. He does this on his properties to make even MORE money. We should not be rejoicing in this kind of corruption. We should be fighting for the end of it no matter who is involved.

      Turn this around. How are you going to justify complaining about a Democratic president doing something similar if you condone this greedy narcissist doing it today?

    • “Barack Obama made 52 international trips to 58 different countries (in addition to visiting the West Bank) during his presidency. He set the record as the most-traveled president for any first year in office: he took the most trips, visited the most countries, and spent the most days abroad. “Wikipedia
      And had little to show for back home. So it would appear President Trump must be working whether he’s on vacation or in DC.

    • And what percentage of her time has she spent on the campaign trial as opposed to doing her job?

    • I’d like to ask this idiot how many days she spent working in the senate as opposed to wasting her time campaigning for the snowball’s chance in hell she’s got to winning the Democrap’s nomination let alone the Presidency! LOL

    • “Jealous?” Dave Hardesty

      Hardly. On the other hand, I am furious that he gets away with things for which anyone else would end up in jail.

      There is no way that I would stay in one of his hotels, even if his was the only one in town. I am too principled to do that.

Why don’t you also mention that he is also working as the President at the same time. He takes a lot of foreign dignitaries to play golf also confuction. Oh, I forgot. Facts confuse you.

    • The Pope is confused.

      What happened was scary and potentially very dangerous and he SHOULD have reacted in a way to protect himself. He has nothing for which he should apologize.

    • Perhaps the Pope should remain behind Vatican walls and his private, armed security.

    • He only apologized for the same reason all these other lefties do, because he got caught on camera.

    • The Catholic Church is a “Do as I say, Not do as I do” Organization Especially this Pope.

    • Well Pope why don’t you give them sanctuary in the Vatican and heal their pain and desperation. The Church is very wealthy and could afford building a city for the immigrants. Unless of course you don’t feel the same when it comes to your home. God bless you Sir.

    • ”violence against women” and he slaps her! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that speaks volumes!

    • No, you got caught pope. You promote islam that is abhorred toward women and you tell the west to open it’s doors to it. You got caught and no one believes you pope. You showed the world the real you.

    • Nothing says hypocrite while praising women while slapping away one who dared touch him.

      It’s closely seconded by denouncing walls while living behind them with an armed private security force. Hollywood has nothing on this Pope.

    • Pope Francis has nothing to apologize for. He did what he had to do to protect himself from an overzealous person grabbing him.

      This is the kind of danger that a public person places himself if, in this case, he doesn’t want to use the Popemobile.

    • Talks about treating women nicely and respectfully while being the pope of the Catholic Church. I wonder how many women and children the Catholic Church has raped over the span of time. There is an ocean of blood on the Catholic churches hands yet they continue to pontificate from their ivory tower down to us rabble of sinners who oh so desperately need their guidance. He should apologize for his entire religious organization not for slapping an over zealous woman’s hand, but when you pander and create zealots you should expect a few to be around you eh?

      Please explain how your agenda and Bernie’s give people choice in medical care OR not to have the government take more of their money. Where is the choice that says “I don’t give a damn if they lack medical care and I CHOOSE not to pay for it?”

      Lyin’ as always Lizzie. You and Bernie ought to surrender your own medical care choices (paid for by taxes) to cover others if you REALLY feel that way.

    • If Warren spent a little time on IJR or listening to Republicans at the impeachment hearings, she would note that R’s DON’T appear to wish to set a precedent for future POTUS. They are holding D’s to the same standards as before Trump made his famous trip down the escalator. Disproven conspiracies still rule the day when they judge D’s. NOW, observing the 2018 re-elections of Hunter and Collins, their lack of standards for R’s will remain. Corrupt R’s are apparently okay going forward. Anything still goes for R’s. Trump settling the 2 class action fraud suits, the 140 campaign contacts with Russians, the 10 counts of obstruction of justice, the $2 million fine for stealing from his charity, and 2 impeachment articles, and over 15,000 lies would appear to be the standard of the day ONLY for R’s.

      • YOU are beginning to sound like you were programmed with the same Leftist BS as your usually hate spewing and confused comrade. Guess you overlooked the shredding of the Constitution by Schifty Schiff, Nadler and Nasty Nancy (who says she “prays” for a man she abhors – more of her hypocritical, anti-Catholic BS) to “impeach”a POTUS simply because he won the 2016 election over an unfit, sickly, Alinsky-radicalized career criminal.

We seem to be good at being prejudice. We have a mentally ill President that is advocating prejudice and he has absolutely no class at all. He isn’t even an honest businessman.

      Yang calling them out is refreshing. Maybe just maybe there’s one democrat whose got a functioning brain whose willing to do what’s right for the American people. But i’ve seen how they lie and promise to be different. Mr. Yang actions speak louder than words. You have a long way to go to prove to the American people that your not one of the sheeple!

    • It’s a shame that Yang, Tulsi, or my beloved whack-job Marianne are not contenders.

      They at least make some sense. The ruling elite, and they are just that, of Biden, Warren, Sanders, and assorted billionaires are just throwing out competing wish lists.

      Notice how they all say “we must do this” vs. “this is exactly how we will do this”. Not that their goals are in any way practical. Notice how “Lunchbox Joe” promised to eliminate millions of blue-collar jobs? Yeah, that’s how the Dims support the non-elite.not living in Blue Zones.

      Guess what? Despite the wishes of the Blue Zones these people have votes just like illegal immigrants in the Blue Zones.

      • LOL…Was having Mexico pay for the wall “in any way practical”?? Tax cuts paying for themselves? No golf and no vacations? Paying off the national debt in 8 years? Making coal king again? The existence of the secret healthcare plan that covers everyone and costs less? GDP of 4, 5 maybe even 6%? And my personal favorite, Drain the Swamp? The guy who was fined for corruption in every aspect of his business was suddenly going to do a 180 and be surround himself with honest brokers?? Are you saying you see a path thru Congress for Yang’s $1,000 per month per person stipend? I am guessing that will be the same Congress that General Confusion envisions passing M4A.

    • PS: Do I really strike you as being so set in my ways that I would not even investigate options? Personally, I think Biden will get the nod and I just can’t vote for him. Given that choice I will stick with DJT as the lesser of the two evils much as I did when he ran against HRC.

      Also I tend to think that in order for any president to truly implement his/her vision for the country they need the eight years that comes with reelection, even Barry needed the full eight to thoroughly screw the country.

      There is much that DJT says and does that makes me shake my head and want to pass him the A1 Steak Sauce for the shoe leather he is ingesting but when it comes down to it his loutishness does not diminish his love for this country or its people. In the end I and I suspect many others are voting for that: A president who won’t apologize to the world for being America or American a la Super O.

        He doesn’t give two hoots about you or me. The ONLY thing that he cares about is himself. He puts on airs about caring, but you don’t seem to recognize that it is all fake.

        He obviously doesn’t care about the country because he is willing to let anyone poison it and kill us. What has he done to help with lead in the water of over 3,000 cities or towns? Nothing! He doesn’t care about the environment at all and is willing to let companies rape it. He takes credit for a good economy, but that has happened DESPITE what he has done, such as the trade war against China and the American people. He doesn’t care about any other people other than himself, except maybe Ivanka. That is obvious because he hasn’t done a thing to help people get the health care that he promised BEFORE getting elected. And this is just for openers.

    • ron replied 1 month ago

      Are you blaming Trump for not taking care of lead in the water? It’s the states and cities who should be doing something about it. This has been a problem for a long time and the states do nothing. As far as china goes, he wants the best deal for our country. He doesn’t care about other people , that’s why unemployment is the lowest in 50 years. Health care he is trying to fix the the mess Obamacare put us in. You know the one where we were going to save money and keep our doctors. Right, how did that work out.Trump has done more in less than 3 years than b.o. Did in 8 years. Just ask the people who now have JOBS and off welfare. He did this while fighting the idiot dimwits who have been after him since he won the election. Just think what he could get done if they would to work with him. He is the one who cares about the people of this country not moron congress .

    • “Are you blaming Trump for not taking care of lead in the water? It’s the states and cities who should be doing something about it.” ron

      Of course. King Donald The Loser promised an infrastructure bill and he has done nothing about it, except to promise that he will sell this country to his friends and the highest bidders even if they are foreigners. He wants to sell you out, Ron.

      The rest of what you wrote are just right-wing talking points and/or noise.

    • Phil,

      So….you are against a wall, by whatever means? Learn Spanish or its sub-dialect Mexican.

      I’ve actually considered and read about some scenarios where Mexico builds the wall to keep Americans from fleeing the 3rd-world shithole conditions becoming standard in places like CA. Mexico at least considers its own citizens before criminal trespassers, unlike the US.

      As for the rest of your demented diatribe I can say two things:
      1. “You can keep your doctor” and “families will save $2500 or more.”
      2. Don’t fail to consider the prosecutions which might take place in Trump’s 2nd term. Your side has a bunch of losers less appealing than Hillary was.

      • PLEASE explain just how a border wall addresses the issue of drugs and illegal entries when 98% occur at legal points of entry. “Mexico will pay for the wall” was to get your attention, it wasn’t a solution to the problem. If you actually believed that it was, Trumpers would all be building a wall on the southern border of their property instead of upgrading their security systems for ALL sides of their home, most assuredly the front and back doors! and LOL…You really want to recycle a version of the “Lock Her Up” mantra?? Using a private server was never a crime. Being on a board of directors for a foreign county’s oil company is not a crime. A board member NOT having oil drilling experience is not a crime, as indicated by simply reviewing the Board of Exxon. Holding opposing views of the party in power is NOT a crime. We are not a third world country. There is a crime on the books or there isn’t. Of course no D candidate appeals to YOU–they are not going after the voter who wants Civil War 2.0.

    • She mocked his stutter????? Sanders needs no apologies. Gropin’ Gaffing Joe is an easy target and he did it first.

    • Rowling is correct. External appearance does not change genetics as much as an individual might wish otherwise.

      • Exactly. Basic genetics is beyond the Party of Science™ and its British affiliates.

    • XX or XY (with occasional error due to non-disjunction). TWO SEXES.

      Ironically, the Party of Science™ and its British affiliates allow belief/mental illness to dictate lifestyle. Worse yet, it allows these persons to dictate over others.

      Also ironic that these same people would likely deny others their rights to exercise and live by their beliefs. q.v. the CO and OR bakers, the florist, the photographer, etc.

      So…..it’s a matter of the Left’s privilege whether one’s beliefs are valid or not. Sure. I’m looking forward to martyring some of these during the coming Civil War 2.0 Pen them in their cities without external resources and see how they fare. Siege is a recognized strategy.

    • Here’s a truth for the Outrage Mob.

      J.K. Rowling has billions. (Go Capitalism!!!) She has multiple millions of fans. WORLDWIDE. She has previously espoused Leftist causes including opposing Brexit.

      So your indulgence of the mentally ill to dictate to and silence the majority will be ill-received if not ignored outright.

    • We need not hear a word about “impartiality in the Senate” when the House had it’s DemocRATic mongrels vote the Party line to stay in lockstep. Rep Gabbard was the ONLY DemocRAT who showed she used her brain and stepped away by voting “Present” on both “articles”.

      • As usual, Confused James, you are still confused.

        The Democratic vote for impeachment was NOT 100% along party lines, while the Republican vote was UNUSUALLY straight along the party line.

    • When you have nothing and your “articles” are utter BS this is what “experts” recommend. Hiding. Like the evidence that Schiff won’t release (no he didn’t release all the closed door testimony). It will backfire. Their base want him removed from the WH in cuffs. If Pelosi falls for this expect a bigger Trump2020 landslide.

  • In a decision sure to bring a sigh of relief for Republicans, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told supporters on Wednesday that she plans to seek a fifth term in the Senate in next year’s election.

    The moderate R […]

    • Hopefully, the people of Maine are awake enough to not re-elect her. She’s heading to prison, but is hoping to bluff her way out by being re-elected. She’s delusional.

    • At the moment she’s better then any dem and GOP won’t primary her.

      • What happened to your concern of TERM LIMITS? Was that just talk? One moment you support term limits, that are never going to be enacted, then you support a 5th term for Collins…The only way to apply term limits is at the voting polls. WHY would you not want a Republican primary candidate if you support term limit? I don’t live in Maine. I have no complaints with Susan Collins. But I am not one of the many IJR posters fantasizing about term limits.

    • Within the last 45 minutes, I received a text message from Senator Collins wanting money for her campaign. Why is it these rich politicians ALWAYS wait until a holiday or time for a family vacation to beg for money. And, I live in Florida. WHY should I donate to Collins in Maine, Hunter in California and McSally in Arizona? Stick it!

      • while i agree with your sentiment, the fact is that money from out of state donations is how the Democrats steal elections. it’ll never happen but i think local elections should be local. if the reach is beyond the persons being effected it should be illegal … We actually have this for national elections already… as in, it’s illegal for foreign governments to advertise for politicians in USA elections.

    • If I would be in Maine, I would welcome voting for a thoughtful centrist who sides with Trump, but has problems voting for a lying racist who has nothing but satisfying his ego as a success for America. For many thinking Americans, this could be an alternative idea. Do we dare wish such?

    • “is there still a role for a centrist who believes in getting things done through compromise, collegiality, and bipartisanship?”

      I hate to burst your bubble Susan, but, after the impeachment and Russian hoax “bipartisanship” will not return in Washington for many, many years. Not in my lifetime (I’m 62) and certainly not in yours either. Not only are politicians segregated from each other with “HATRED”, I know and see many Citizens divided, arguing and fighting with each other over, actually hating each other over the mess these so called smart ass politicians (who know everything that’s good for us) have created……some have said they are sad like Pelosi but I’ll assure you every one on the left, all the Trump haters and anti Trump people will have smiles from ear to ear after today.

      I fear if Trump is re-elected for a second term, it’s going to be the worst thing we’ll have ever seen in this country. Such hatred from those say’n they are “PRAYING” everyday for the President. It’s just crazy………people have gone insane…………..

    • does anyone else see the reoccurring theme “Accuse the Republicans without proof of what there’s proof Democrats are / have done” ?????????

    • I frequently read IJR posts in support of TERM LIMITS. WHY would you support a 5th term for Collins if you actually believe what you post? I don’t reside in Maine. Since I don’t wish to have the folks of Maine to tell me who the Senator from Pennsylvania should be, I am silent on that issue. BUT I am not a poster of calls for term limits or up voters on those many comments. You folks appear confused.

      • “WHY would you support a 5th term for Collins if you actually believe what you post?” Phyllis

        There is a word for what they do. There may be a better one, but disingenuous came to mind first.

      You are confused, Brad.

      I am not smiling at all. I think that it is a disgrace to our country and embarrassing to have to impeach a president, even this criminal one.

      King Donald The Loser has exposed many weaknesses of our system of government and corrupted it so much that we have a long way to go before this country will be able to achieve peace within itself.

      • No crimes proven or mentioned. Just expressed and confirmed their hatred of Trump because he beat their Alinsky radicalized career criminal in 2016. Everyone should be thanking him and changing their voter registration to Republican (or Independent always voting Republican).

    • “Collins’ top Democratic challenger is Sara Gideon”

      If you actually want to drain the swamp, then look into Betsy Sweet.

    • Maybe a real Republican candidate will run against Susan Collins.

    • “No crimes proven or mentioned.” Confused James

      I am confused.

      Did you ever read the charges outlined in the Mueller Report?

      King Donald The Loser’s CO-CONSPIRATOR is in jail. Why is His Majesty himself not in jail?

      Michael Cohen outlined how KDTL raised property values to get loans (that is a crime), and how he lowered his property values for insurance fees (that’s fraud) and taxes (that fraud against YOU). Are you O.K. with all of this fraud?

      • IF Trump did (?) what you say, what has the got to do with him being in the White House? And, don’t bring up WHO belongs in jail or deported. A number of your radicalized Socialist/Marxist mentors may still be called and have an opportunity to plead guilty to violating the Espionage Act, Treason, Fraud. Stay tuned. AG Barr has his plate full.

    • “IF Trump did (?) what you say, what has the got to do with him being in the White House?” Confused James

      There is no IF. His coconspirator IS IN JAIL for their crimes. You should be asking why His Majesty’s ass also isn’t in jail.

    • LOL…you are forgetting that Trumpers determine truth on the basis of if the information is what comports with their unfounded opinions and conspiracies. Your 5 down votes were probably a reminder. I do not care if it is the Lincoln Project or the Democrats. BUT someone needs to address the insanity of Trumpism ASAP.

    • A temper tantrum sprinkled with lies. What a surprise.

    • I am curious.

      Why would King Donald The Loser send this letter? At the end of this article it quotes him as saying that it is for posterity, etc., but is that the real reason, the whole reason, or the only reason?

      KDTL preaches to his Cult-45 because they are his strength. Without them and his fascist party members he is nothing and vulnerable. At this time he also is getting more cornered and he knows it, so wouldn’t it be more logical that he is doing this to save his skin, that he is reaching out to his cult members to keep him in their focus and them in line, that he is just continuing his normal projection of issues away from him onto the Democrats?

    • Talk about deranged.

    • Everyone knows he will spend billions on his campaign and to help other dems. We know dems roll in dark money and PACs (pretending otherwise). Such hypocrites when it comes to campaign finance!

      • As Morte points out, it is Bloomberg’s money to do with as he wishes. That is the same as the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Robert Mercer, and the Prince and DeVos family. Only Sanders and Warren have denounced PAC’s. They are hardly representative of the entire D field of candidates.

    • Literally his money to spend as he pleases.

    • “Only Sanders and Warren have denounced PAC’s. They are hardly representative of the entire D field of candidates.” Phyllis

      Hardly representive, true, but they are a GROWING corner of the field. They are setting the narrative for the party and showing what can be done with many small donations.

      Do you know who else relies on small donations? King Donald The Loser. A few other Republicans do, too, but almost nothing compared to, say, a Justice Democrat.
