On Thursday, President Donald Trump took shots at his political opponents in his first post-impeachment statements since the Senate acquitted him of articles of impeachments that were originally passed in the House.
“We’ve all been through a lot together. It’s been a very unfair situation,” he said before a cheering crowd.
“We’ve been going through this now for three years. It was evil, it was corrupt, it was dirty cops, it was leakers. It was a disgrace. Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster, by the way, it’s possible I wouldn’t even be standing here right now,” he added before shifting the discussion to his accomplishments.
“We’ve done more than any president, any administration, you look at all of the things we’ve done.”
According to a report from The New York Post, Trump predicted that the stock market would have tanked had he not been victorious in the 2016 election.
“That’s all our credit. One of the reasons it’s going up … and one of the reasons the stock market has gone up so much in the last few days is people think we’re doing so well, they liked the State of the Union speech,” Trump remarked while giving his extemporaneous speech.
“This is really not a news conference, it’s not a speech, it’s not anything, it’s just we’re sort of — it’s a celebration because we have something that just worked out. It worked out. We went through hell unfairly. Did nothing wrong. Did nothing wrong,” he said, while holding up a copy of the Washington Post with a banner headline that read, “Trump acquitted.”
“We first went through Russia, Russia, Russia. It was all bullshit,” he continued.
“Little did we know we were running against some very, very bad and evil people with fake dossiers, with all of these horrible, dirty cops that took these dossiers and did bad things. They knew all about it.”
The president’s legal team of Pat Cipollone, Jay Sekulow and Patrick Philbin had front-row seats for the statements. Trump thanked them for their service.
At Trump’s address were a group of Trump loyalists which included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, Georgia Congressman Doug Collins, and Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert.
Trump then took Congressman Adam Schiff, the leader of the House’s impeachment efforts, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to task.
“They made up facts. A corrupt politician named Adam Schiff made up my statement to the Ukrainian president,” he said about Schiff’s sloppy rendition of Trump’s July 25 call to Volodymyr Zelensky, which was the main catalyst behind the impeachment probe after Trump requested that Ukraine investigate Joe Biden.
“Adam Schiff is a vicious, horrible person. Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person, and she wanted to impeach a long time ago when she said, ‘I pray for the president.’ She doesn’t pray. She may pray but she prays for the opposite. But I doubt she prays at all. These are vicious people.”
The Senate acquittal represents Trump’s biggest victory over congressional Democrats.
These are areas where he should be focusing his attention instead of the previous episodes of Kabuki theater like Russiagate and impeachment.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
