In the Barack Hussein Obama White House days, one could count on a few things around the holidays:
1. A promise of higher taxes in the coming year
2. Terrible retail and financial news about a lukewarm holiday season
3. A quote from the Quran or a story of Kwanza
4. A wish of a generic and unenthusiastic “Happy Holidays”
The Trump White House, in contrast, is full of jubilant news of an exciting holiday season with an ebullient staff talking about all the positive economic news on all fronts, a promise of a new lower tax rate in the coming year, and a tweet from the White House to detractors about Trump’s use of Christian terminology of “Merry Christmas!”
As the Left stomps its feet in protest to this new affront to their very existence, the president and the First Family, as well as the family of Mike Pence, and the Cabinet members parade all of their successes thus far. In a very unorthodox fashion, our president decided to drop one more message that will bring the house down on the Liberals: “For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”
When President Donald Trump presided over the 95th annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree on Thursday, he reminded everyone that Jesus is reason for the season by an invocation at the ceremony that was openly, unapologetically Christian.
“For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” Trump said, according to CNS, standing before a Colorado blue spruce tree that was covered by thousands of lights.
“The Christmas story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all — the gift of God’s love for all of humanity,” he continued.
“Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history.
“There’s hardly an aspect of our lives today that his life has not touched — art, music, culture, law and our respect for the sacred dignity of every person, everywhere in the world.”
Talk about amazing. We haven’t heard a president talk about Jesus like that in years — and it’s refreshing to hear it now.
Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke must have known what was coming when he introduced Trump, according to The Associated Press, as “a man who loves our parks, loves our military, and loves our country. The man who brought ‘Merry Christmas’ back to our nation’s capital — and you did, sir.”
The lighting ceremony was followed by an hourlong celebration hosted by NBC’s “Today” show co-host Kathy Lee Gifford and actor Dean Cane.
The Beach Boys, singer Wynnona Judd and the U.S. Navy Band also performed at the event, ABC News reported.
There is a lot of power in the name and person of Jesus Christ and it’s important to note that each time a president invokes His name, that presidency enjoys unprecedented success and popularity.
Compare Barack Hussein Obama’s presidency and the feeling that it bestowed on the average American throughout his two terms with that of just one single year of a Trump presidency and you’ll see exactly why many people today feel that the country has finally been saved from floundering. Now, the next step is to ensure that she floats again with the help and grace of God, the Father Almighty!
