Been awhile for ben to post

Good evening,  A lot has happened since my last post in October.  I am quite thankful that President Donald Trump prevailed.  His first 100 days has went fast.  I give President Trump kudos on changing Mexico City policy, starting keystone pipeline, nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme  Court.  I am so thankful he made it to office instead of Hilary Clinton.  I feel hopeful.  I know President Trump is not perfect however I am glad I voted for him(though I voted for Ted Cruz in the primary).  He surprised the media who basically told the general public that Hilary had won.  My distrust for the mainstream media has never been higher.  Right now it seems the big news item is North Korea and if they will try to make the United States upset.  I hope not.  I know North Korea is an evil government keeping their citizens in labor camps if they don't follow the government.  I hope someday there can be freedom for the citizens of North Korea.  I hear the North Koreans don't know much about life outside North Korea because the media tells them lies.  I wonder how often our media lies to us.
Been a busy week planting popcorn, spraying pesticides, etc.  We are about 80 percent done with popcorn already due to the dry weather.  My boss is in his 70's and he cannot remember being done planting popcorn before end of April. My daughter graduates next month.  I cannot believe she will be living on her own in only 3 months.
I like to read books, a trait passed on to me from my mom's side of the family.  I enjoy reading my uncle's blog about politics, etc.  I check my uncle's blog a few times a week.
Also my wife and I went on our first cruise.  It was wonderful.  We had stops along Mexico(Progresso and cannot remember other one.)  I would recommend a cruise to anyone.
Well I will type again another time.

Mainstream Media and Donald Trump

I watched the 2nd presidential debate this past Sunday night.  Wow, again the 2 moderators were actually debating with Trump.  Again I do not understand why the Republican Party agrees to such terms.  I do not understand.  Then I read that Rush Limbaugh says that the Republican Party in general does not want to win.  I think I am finally starting to see things.  I was disappointed in Donald Trump's tape over the weekend from 2005.  They were crude, horrible comments.  Trump did apologize.  I have never heard Bill and Hillary Clinton apologize.  I myself before I became a Christian(during my sophomore year of college) also was embarrassed of things I did.  I repented of those actions.  I will still be voting for Donald Trump.  Mr. Trump will put in good supreme court justices and seems to be pro-life.  Planned Parenthood is trying to get Hillary elected which tells me that Donald Trump will be pro-life.  When Paul Ryan says he will not defend Trump I now see that the Republican Party is not wanting to win.  I also now am cautious of watching the news because it is trying to brainwash us.
I will continue to pray for the election and our country. 
On a good note the Chicago Cubs won the first playoff series and now will face the winner of the Dodgers and Nationals.  I have followed the Cubs my whole life enjoying them even when they had losing seasons.  This could be the year they win the world series.

The Debate and the Smokey Mountains

I watched the debate on Monday night with my lovely wife and a friend.  I thought started out good until Lester Holt inserted himself.  I was in disbelieve as he would fact check Donald and never asked Hillary anything in regards to Bengazi, Clinton foundation and her emails.  When the topic of cyber security came up I thought Donald would go after her poor record.  Nothing came up except when Lester Holt asked Donald about his tax returns and Donald had to bring the emails up.  After watching the debate and thinking about it I have come to a couple of conclusions.  One is that the media does not want Donald Trump elected.  Number 2 it is scary how the media is controlling our minds.  I was in disbelieve how Donald Trump was debating against Lester Holt and Hillary Clinton.  If the American people let the media get away with this we are in trouble.  The media is controlling us worse than I thought.  I am reading a book right now "Trapped in Hitlers Hell"  about a Jewish girl how actually became a Christian.  The Nazis brainwashed the Germans.  We are being brainwashed by our media.  The debate keeps rolling around in my mind.  I am in disbelief in what I saw.  If Hillary gets elected our country is finished.  I hate to be negative however I do not believe there is hope.  As a Christian however my hope is in Jesus Christ.  I feel sorry for the people though where Jesus is not there hope.  I will be praying for my country more than ever after watching that joke of a debate.  The media and Clinton versus Donald Trump. 
On a more positive note my family went to the Smokey Mountains.  They are beautiful.  We even came upon a couple wild black bears.  That is the first time in my life to see black bears in the wild.  We were in our car though so I was not scared.  I have attached a picture I took.

Here is a picture of my son at the Smokeys.

On the way home in Kentucky we stopped by the Ark Encounter.  Ken Ham built a ark that was the same scale as the one from the Bible.  It was amazing.  I will attach a picture.  My family and I enjoyed it.  I met a Jewish guy there where he liked it also though he does not believe in Jesus.  I need to pray for him.

We need as a country to go to God otherwise we will need his ark of protection from our country if Hillary is elected.

My uncle has a blog and inspires me to keep writing on mine when I read his.  Thanks Uncle G.!
