Donald Trump Signs Bill Allowing States To Cut Off Funds For Planned Parenthood

By Theodore Shoebat

Donald Trump just signed a bill which allows states to cut off federal funding for organization that provide abortions, including Planned Parenthood. As we read in one report:

President Donald Trump privately signed a bill on Thursday that allows states to withhold federal money from organizations that provide abortion services, including Planned Parenthood, a group frequently targeted by Republicans.

The bill, which the usually camera-friendly President signed without any media present, reverses an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from facilities that perform abortions, arguing that many of these facilities also provide other family planning and medical services.

    This is excellent news to hear indeed that Trump quietly made this move.

    • Kkdgrace

      Maybe it is only a “quiet” move as the media doesn’t relish dissimentaing his success in this area. Possibly?

      • Kamau41

        He makes really good decisions on some things and really bad decisions on others. I think Ralph below summed it up quite well.

        • Kkdgrace

          I think you may be right. Still, there is so much we don’t know about the way he truly thinks. I don’t think he is as much of an ideologue as someone who is either conservative or liberal. I don’t know exactly what ideology he operates from – that’s what keeps me confused.

          • Kamau41

            There is so much confusion around. We must daily continue to pray for him.

          • Kkdgrace

            Yes…. for someone coming out of a protestant background, there is so very much to learn and that takes keeping up with regular reading on church history, the early Fathers, and the tenets of the faith. It’s not enough just to convert – an entire lifetime of certain thinking patterns and certain ways of viewing salvation needs not only to be changed, but new and correct thoughts and views must be deeply ingrained within a person as well. I think we need to pray that those converting from Protestantism don’t simply convert and end up bringing their old thinking patterns into the Church, potentially “infecting” the body. Does that make sense?

          • Kkdgrace

            Yes we do. For him and those he has around him giving him advice. So much prayer is needed at this time – not just for him, but for the escalating mess the world is in.

          • Kamau41

            Amen indeed!

  • Raph Sebastian

    The man does one thing that upsets millions of learned and educated Christians one day and then on another day does this. Whenever this guy uses his conscience to make decisions it almost always inevitably ends up being the right one. He should have gone with his gut and conscience with regards to Syria. He said he will not be escalating the problems in Syria during the campaign but went against his own better judgment because he listened to war mongers and those who stand to profit from war.

    • It’s as I have said before and I will say it again.

      I think Trump was throwing the warmongers bones to chew on to keep them off his back.

      • Raph Sebastian

        You are more than likely right, dear brother.

        • I can only hope. So many want to eliminate Assad in the name of peace and do not think of long term consequences. I believe Theo was right when he stated conservatives will side with the Antichrist.

          • Kamau41

            Yes, I truly believe Theo remains right on track!

          • Raph Sebastian

            I agree. Some of them will include our friends and relatives too. There will be decisions that we will have to make ourselves when the time comes.

          • Yes sir.

    • Ceirwyn

      I’m starting to think he has a dice set he uses for some of his decision making. It’s enough to make you dizzy.

      • Raph Sebastian

        In America there’s this thing called the magic 8-ball. But the guy is obviously using his instinct on certain decisions and acting on wrong advise in others.

      • richinnameonly

        I believe that Trump sees being unpredictable as a tool to use to gain advantage in his “deal” making.

    • Brenda

      Sounds like the story of my life not using the conscience or those gut feelings etc enough, I’d even have dreams telling me exactly how someone was deceiving me and still would need to wait for some “solid proof” which usually meant waiting too long. But then again, that’s how society taught us, to doubt ourselves when that happens.

      • Raph Sebastian

        Church traditions teaches that your instinct is actually conscience and the prompting of your Guardian Angel through the Holy Spirit telling you what to do. We need to listen and be prayerful. Catholics have the physical presence of the LORD in them, in the form of the Eucharist, the LORD is in us and HE will tell us what to do, if we only listen.

        • Brenda

          That sounds perfect, I mean an answer to a question I had for so long as I was not raised Catholic, “But recently learned we were Catholics, My great grandparents I think. Anyhow to make a long story short before a man tried to rape me I had that gut feeling that someone was watching me and saw what looked like a pretty greenish blue like a silk go past the door, But right there was the refrigerator so it could not have been a person. Okay, so later on in life after having a time of it with visions and such, I was telling myself I had to have been crazy, Right then it was like I heard a males voice ask me if I needed him to walk through the refrigerator again? ( I always wondered if that was a guardian angel !! ) Thank you Raph so much.

          • Raph Sebastian

            You are most welcome. Before 1517, all Christians that walked on God’s Earth were Catholic, and your great grandparents being Catholic doesn’t sup[rise me one bit.

            I am sorry to hear that such men have come to across your path in your life. There is nothing more despicable than men of such depravity. I hope you have recovered from such a terrible prospect and are at peace.

            As a veteran who served three tours of duty, I can tell you of hundreds of occasions in which both my men and I used instinct and listened to our respective Guardian Angels.

            There are countless stories of prayerful men who go to war and experience this for their own. For the Catholics in my company, we attend Mass daily and have weekly confessions, because we do not know if we would be coming back safe. So I hear a lot of such stories mostly from the Catholics in my battalion and company. I think the Protestants hardly ever wanted to share such things for fear of being ridiculed.

            The other ones who are not prayerful or of faith put it down to coincidence and sheer luck.

            The countless times I had of near misses, of taking a different route that avoided IEDs, ambushes and certain death for either me or my men is uncountable. This all the more cemented my faith and belief in all that the Church teaches.

            However I do put it some of it down to training and experience and knowing the lay of the land but when the nagging feeling is constant then you should stop and listen.

          • Brenda

            Oh I was fine Raph, That rapist ran away when I told him to get the hell out of my house, he had attacked our neighbor a few days before, that’s how I knew what he was,.I was gonna fight him if I had to, It would have woken others up, and he knew that I guess.

  • Kkdgrace

    Glory to God for THIS! Trump appears to be a mass of contradictions. So hard for me to separate what is the truth vs media hype and propaganda. As with ANY administration, I think for us Christians, it all comes down to PRAYER….and LOTS of it!

  • “I even read just now that there is no difference between conservatives and liberals on this very site!”

    Please give EXACT quotes instead of generalizations.

    • racarrera

      He can’t, and never does.

  • Kamau41

    Yea, you are an outright liar/slanderer.

  • “Pope who looks like a lamb but speaks like a dragon”

    Where does the text say “Pope”?

    Or is it that you add whatever words you like to make it Bible?

    You speak bile not Bible.

    The lamb has “two horns”. Its a beast looking like a lamb.

    this first beast that received a deadly wound and is currently arising from the earth (the pit) will come again as the second beast.

    This first beast, this seven-headed caliphate will revive again as the second beast, but this time, it will stem as two crowns with “two horns,” “acting like a lamb” while “speaking like a dragon” (one Shiite horn from Persia and another Sunni horn from Turkey) as mentioned in Revelation 13:11 and Ezekiel 38.

    This dragon is the same dragon in the previous chapter in Revelation 12, the same beast that received the deadly wound: “And I saw one of his heads [the seventh] as it were slain to death: and his death’s wound was healed.” It “comes up out of the bottomless pit, and go into destruction [swallowed by the earth]”. It is healed to become the eighth: “And the beast which was [Greco-Roman], and is not [at John’s time]: the same also is the eighth [the coming Antichrist], and is of the seven [the seventh], and goeth into destruction.” (Revelation 17:11)

    “And all the earth was in admiration after the beast” this would be the last one (the revived seventh) wounded head which is the Ottoman Empire which took the mantle from the Roman Empire. This came up (as the seventh) encompassing the Four Muslim Caliphates (four heads); all in one and was centered in Greece (Asia Minor) as the “Leopard” of Alexander’s realm.

    As the dragon-beast spewed his flood (Rev 12:15) which are the Muslim locusts from the bottomless pit (Rev 9:2) to persecute the seed of the woman (Rev 12:17): “that he might cause her to be carried away by the river”.

    The devil’s whole purpose with the flood is that he wanted the church to blend in this torrent and get carried away by the river of Islam to convert and worship him abandoning the Trinity (1 John 2:22). Here are the two threats (beasts):

    “And I saw a beast [first beast] coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.” (Revelation 13:1)

    “And I saw another beast [second beast] coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.” (Revelation 13:11)

    Please note, the seven heads (seven Caliphates) have been swallowed up by the pit and comes as the second beast “another beast” back from the earth (the pit).

    Now, for your silly theory to be true, you need to explain from history (which you do not know a lick of history or geography) that this beast had 4, also 7 and also ten horns.

    Only Islam fits. Perfectly.

    There are Four Main Caliphates (Rashidun, Umayyad, Abbasid and Ottoman) yet there were also seven caliphates (Rashidun, Umayyad, Abbasid, Fatimid, Ayyubid, Almohad and Ottoman) and ten crowns which represent the seven caliphates that also arise in the end as two horns (Turkey and Iran).

    why in Revelation 13, John spoke of two beasts and not just one?

    The reason so many misunderstand this prophecy is simple: they focus on prophecy as strictly for the ends of days as if God cared only about the Christians in our time and as if He cared little to help the Church throughout history. Apocalypse is not intended only for the end times but for the entire history of the people of God especially during the church era.

    Once you read Revelation 13 and Revelation 17, pay close attention. What John was saying can be summarized in that John includes the historic threat to all of God’s people; Israel (the Jews) and post Israel (the Church). So when he says of the seven headed beast “five have fallen” (Rev 17:10) these are pre-church which also includes Israel. Then he says “one is” (Roman, during the church) yet refers to another “the other that is not yet” is regarding the church age after Rome was converted and lost its empire. This church age suffers two beasts (two massive threats); one comes as a “seven headed beast” to also come again as the second beast in the end as “a lamb with two horns”; which is the “the eighth” kingdom of the Antichrist’s empire.

    God does not instruct only a select group. Church history has already endured the first beast (which will revive again):

    “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the [Mediterranean] sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. [denies Father and Son (Trinity), see 1 John 2:22]”

    This beast (controlled spiritually by the Arabian harlot city, Mecca) made war with the church specifically at the Mediterranean region (the Sea): “it was given unto him to make war with the saints,” and “to overcome them” and it ruled “over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations”.

    This empire used the sword and whoever gave allegiance to it ended up on the side of the dragon, swept by the river that spewed out of the dragon-beast and is bound to hell. It used the sword: “He that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” It also requires the “patience and the faith of the saints” to endure till the end (by death or victory) in order to be saved. No patience or endurance; giving up; or accepting the beast to spare one’s head from amputation; means spiritual death; while having our heads amputated means victory. (Revelation 20:4) For decades we warned of the coming beheadings, where people wrote us off, and today we are so accustomed to it is becoming a daily occurrence.

    Then when one continues reading John then ‘pop’, we have yet another beast:

    “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth [the grave]; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon and it exercises all the power of the first beast [which went to the grave] before him … whose deadly wound was healed [coming out of the grave of the dead].”

    The first beast comes out of “the sea,” which are multitudes of nations, tribes and different tongues within the Mediterranean region then is “swallowed by the earth” (Rev 12:16) and the second beast resembling the first beast comes out of “the earth” after it was swallowed by the earth having received the deadly wound. So the last one (lamb with two horns) comes in 2 powers: Sunni (Turkey) and Shiite (Iran) as described in Ezekiel 38 with the hordes from “Meshech” (Turkey), “Persia” (Iran) and “Libya” (North African hordes) including Sudan and Somalia “Cush”.

    Now if you want to proclaim yourself knowledgable, answer this simple question: name a literal nation in scripture that God condemns by name that is not Muslim?

    You can’t and you won’t. 100% guaranteed.

      Walid, I hope you don’t mind but I would like to use this nicely summed up comment in the future. I of course will credit you as the author of said comment.

      Bless you, Walid…you are always such a blessing to me. Thank you. Have a wonderful Easter.

    Being a business man I can relate to Trump. He has trained or is just made to stay in key and that’s how he is so successful. Whether a business leader will make a good President I don’t know…but he is definitely a man of change. His weekly message today 4/14 was a first in the modern age, a age built upon “modernism”.

  • Raph Sebastian

    You have to add slander in every reply right? It’s just your nature isn’t it? Will you go find out what indeed he truly said, and find out what the catechism of the Catholic Church teaches before saying things you have no idea about?

    Is salvation for all? That is a simple question…yes or no?

    You haven’t answered the rest the questions from previous posts to you and you now want to start something else? This is sickness of the mind, you really need to get help.

  • Raph Sebastian

    It takes an educationally normal person to deduce what influences a person’s decisions. One can easily come to know what is another’s conscience by listening to his own words.

    Of course people like you, and your one verse theology, and of educationally subnormal intelligence would not be able to make such elementary deductions. You prefer to fling badly interpreted bible verses that doesn’t make any point if read in context.

  • Tom_mcewen

    The claim you wrote came from a satire news site in 2015, picked up by US snich using false links to the Washington Post. So who is the liar, who passed on slander without facts? False witness is a sin.

  • Little children in innocence not in knowledge. In knowledge we must be astute as Jesus also said “My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge”.

  • Michael Powell

    Doesn’t forcefully end funding, but “allows” states to end funding? Doesn’t sound like that great a news to me.

  • Raph Sebastian

    You have to start with yourself. One verse theology was never taught by the Apostles. Self examination is hard for the types of you.

  • Kamau41

    It’s ALWAYS very dangerous to isolate verses too.
