!SUMMARY OF TOP CRUCIAL ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE LETHAL OLIGARCHY OF REPUBLICANS/TRUMP & DEMOCRATS/BIDEN

(Still under construction and formatting is not at all perfect (I’m not an artist). But the evidence and proof here is important for current issues in our world.

SUMMARY: Evidence from Bible principles and science shows that greed is the root of every major evil as God said (1 Tim. 6:10) and that because Republicans pioneered government by greed since the early 1900s and welfare for the rich in the trillions of dollars (with trickle down economics, myriads of loopholes for the rich, enormous subsidies for Wall Street but not Main street and more), their policies, their polices, esp. under Trump are the primary cause of ~7 kinds of death (abortion, bad health, poverty, pollution, suicides, war, COVID-19, as well as much higher levels of sexual slavery, poisoning the environment, giving control of government to Catholics, constant massive wars, siding with corporations against families and many other evils.

But democrats and Biden are not a solution and are not that far behind because they have followed government by greed since the 1990s and have been involved in abortion (But it happens less under democrats for important reasons), Biden has helped corporations force families into debt, has promoted wars for empire, mass incarceration, etc. You could consider them the lesser of two evils and [it a lot of pressure on them after the election to do good as Dr. Cornel West/Dr. Chomsky and others have said.

Third parties like the American Solidarity Party may be the best choice this election, esp. if you’re not in a swing state, and have had major influence on policy changes in the past.

But most important, Christians and moral people should unify to oppose ALL evils and injustices that people from ALL backgrounds see. If we do this, day to day and week to week in their churches and communities has far more of an effect in reducing evils and injustices that both the right and left are concerned about than anything else, far more than putting a piece of paper in a box every 4 years.)

Some people and some friends of mine support republicans and Trump thinking they are doing good while other people and friends of mine who also want the best good for as many people as possible support democrats and Biden. Many on both sides have the best intentions and each side sees some injustices that harm a lot of people. My republican friends are usually concerned about abortion, Marxism, secularism and issues like that that harm many lives. Republicans think you can’t get any more evil than these. My democrat friends are usually concerned about the very lethal greed of the elite, environmental destruction, racism, sexism, some are very against the devastation of war and other issues which harm a lot of lives. Similarly, they think you can’t get any more evil than these injustices. Who is right?

As evidence below will show, Bible principles and scientific research show that republican policies are the primary cause of nearly every major type of death of innocents that we know about. Democrats are not a lot better, but are a distant second in causing the most evils on earth to the Republicans. Supporting 3rd parties may send a better message and make more substantial changes than supporting the 2 party oligarchy/duopoly and I will probably vote for the American Solidarity Party since its principles are closest to those that God says help nations thrive and we are supposed to do the “best good”, not the lesser of two evils in the Bible. John Adams said that votes based on principle are never wasted and 3rd parties have pioneered your right to vote, the 8 hour work day, maternal life, worker safety, paid vacations and many other things. But the republican policies are according to the Bible and science following policies that are significantly more devastating and lethal. And so if you were to vote for the lesser of 2 evils, you would have to vote against republicans first and foremost.

Far more important than who becomes president in 2020 is what Christians and moral people do day to day and week to week in their churches and communities. Your daily buying choices are FARRR more powerful to do good than putting a piece of paper in a ballot once every 4 years and arguing in between that. Corporate propaganda convinces many people to waste money on useless things instead of spending it on evangelism and families. Here are some statistics on that from a major missions site:

–Evangelical Christians could provide all of the funds needed to plant a church in each of the 6,900 unreached people groups with only 0.03% of their income.

–“The Church has roughly 3,000 times the financial resources and 9,000 times the manpower needed to finish the Great Commission.”

–Problem: “Americans have recently spent more money buying Halloween costumes for their pets than the amount given to reach the unreached.”

www.thetravelingteam.org/stats/


New research shows that if you choose to buy from poor people and small local businesses, esp. in poor neighborhoods, even 5 percent of the time, it can reduce income inequality by up to 80 percent.

https://www.yesmagazine.org/issues/solidarity/shop-here-not-there-science-says-reducing-inequality-is-almost-that-simple-20171120

The Economics of Happiness is a documentary that illustrates this and other practical solutions at the community level quite well (The first 30 minutes shows the massive corruption of current economics and the last 30 minutes shows how local communities can and are solving these problems and thriving together).
http://blog.truth-is-life.org/docu/econ/economics-of-happiness/

Sadly for most Americans/Christians, buying Halloween costumes for pets and other trivial material things is more important than stopping abortion, than ending homelessness, than justice, than finishing the Great Commission, etc.  What would Jesus say..or prophets or apostles?

The Bible says not to put our trust in princes. Trump is a neo-liberal catastrophe and Biden is a neo-liberal disaster (neo-liberal economics is massive defiance of God, and is basically about giving trillions to the already super rich for no work done, and is strictly forbidden by the Bible). This is the primary cause of every evil on earth that both conservatives and liberals are rightly concerned about. But it is your daily buying choices and use of money that has the biggest impact in increasing various kinds of injustice or reducing it. To reduce all injustices, we’ll have to work through churches and get them to follow Bible economics if we have any sincerity in reducing abortion and other evils in society.

The Bible tells us to look at a few factors as causes of evil. The most serious one is greed. Because all sin is evil, and greed is the “the root of all kinds of evil” (1 Tim. 6:10), all sin is related to greed/evil. And science is confirming this in pretty much every area. The Bible lists at least 20 specific evils that greed causes including that “Greed brings grief to the whole family” (Prov. 15:27), causes fighting (Prov. 28:25), causes violence (Ez. 45:9, Is. 5:7,8), ruins nations (Hab. 2:5), eradicates God’s love in people’s hearts (1 John 3:17), will cause very difficult times in the last days (2 Tim. 3:1,2) and more. So greed is the top cause of abortion and racism, Marxism/secularism and environmental destruction.

If we look at research on what causes the most deaths of innocents, the most ruin for families, the most destruction of genuine freedom and more, it’s greed. It is a fact that Republicans have pioneered government by greed for over a century and especially since the 1980s with trickle-down economics and neo-liberal economics (both parties support this, but republicans pioneered it) in ways that are diametrically opposed to God’s principles. They also are pioneers of violent wars in many states for dominance and power (almost 80% of aggressive wars were started by Republicans, including many that destroyed democracy in other countries as many scholars, American military men and victims have testified to. See for example the documentary: https://topdocumentaryfilms.com/power-principle/). Here are the top causes of death in the world, to the best of our current knowledge.

  1. Bad health habits/conditions:      ~41,000,000 people/year[1] (many due to greed/corporate drugs/junk food)
  2. Abortion:                                                  ~40,000,000+ fetuses/year[2] (due mostly to greed)
  3. Poverty:                                                                ~18,000,000 people/year[3] (greed/poverty is also a factor in other deaths)
  4. Pollution:                                      ~12,600,000 people/year[4] (due to mostly corporate greed)
  5. Injuries/violence:                                     ~5,800,000 people/year[5] (due to mostly corporate greed)
  6. Racism                                                                  ~3,850,000 people/year[6] (profits from racism are ~$182 billion/year)
  7. Work accidents:                                        ~2.78 million people/year[7] (greed causes safety principles to be ignored)
  8. Violence (Murder, War, etc):       ~1,600,000 people/year[8] (greed causes desperation which causes violence)
  9. Road accidents:                            ~1,350,000 people/year[9] (alcohol corporations and car companies follow greed above safety).
  10. Suicide:                                                     ~1,000,000 people/year[10]       (this is mostly due to greed by a few causing depression for many)

If you are against deaths of innocent people you have to be against the party that supports greed and corporations that put profit over people most. And because republicans follow policies of greed, corruption, violence for empire and so much more, by Bible principles, Republicans are the top #1 cause of pretty much all major causes of death, including the above causes. And evidence below show that Trump has escalated the numbers of deaths in many of these areas. In addition, the rate of the sexual slavery of children has escalated under Trump by at least 13%, while the prosecution of those engaging in child sexual slavery has plummeted by ~27% (a separate article is coming on this…look for a link in the future). Trump has also put 3 Catholics in the Supreme court, bring the number of pro-Catholics to 7 (Gorsuch was raised and trained Catholic, but claims to be protestant) as well as putting Catholics in hundreds of positions all over the judiciary and powerful positions in government (look into the Catholic run Federalist Society and its massive influence in republicans selecting judges…another article on that soon).

Again, Democrats have several serious areas where they are in opposition to God’s principles as well, and are complicit in many of the same harmful policies to a lesser degree. So don’t take this as endorsement for them. I understand people who might vote for them as the lesser of 2 evils since their policies are a distant 2nd to causing the many evils that exist in society. But they have serious problems as well. A link to a few of those will be near the end.

Many people, including close relatives, the ghost author of Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal”, many republicans and 1000s of pastors have seen based on Bible principles and the testimony of many witnesses,
that Trump’s father taught him from childhood that getting rich is everything, and that if you have to cheat, con and scam people, ruin small family-run businesses, launder money, work with the mafia, bribe the government or break laws, and even kill people, that’s all secondary to getting rich and famous. The biblical term for that is greed. That’s exactly what he has done with devastating consequences for millions upon millions of people if not billions.

The Bible says that political leaders must not be greedy, promiscuous or ignorant of God’s laws (Deut. 17:17). Because Trump’s top goals in life are greed and pride and he is completely ignorant of God’s laws, he signed many policies (and other republicans supported them) that have caused dire poverty and debt slavery, which are the direct causes of up to 75% of abortions. His policies support corporations that put greed over human welfare and are the main cause of ~41 million deaths every year from bad health (due largely to destructive corporate products). Policies of republicans and Trump cause ~700 people to die every day from poverty in the US, ~220 deaths a day from racism. There are also many deaths from pollution, many deaths from suicide, many deaths from wars that republicans have started overseas. In addition, levels of sex slavery and sexual abuse of children have dramatically risen under Trump.

Very early on, Trump learned from the 33 degree freemason Norman Vincent Peale a kind of occult self-help religion that says to always put a positive spin on whatever happens and just continually say positive things about yourself, mostly refuse to acknowledge sins or wrongs (unless there are seriously earthly consequences) and good things will happen. This rejects reliance on God and Bible principles of repentance, etc. and is a false religion, a religion of the occult.

Trump has also studied propaganda tactics and how to control the masses in great depth and is an expert at using them, telling people what they want to hear, while he does the opposite and betrays them as David K Johnston, a conservative journalist with decades of experience and more original documents about Trump than anyone else on earth.  Trump is now scamming Christians and entire countries since so many people have no clue about how to find truth fairly by Bible or academic standards.


Many historians of the holocaust, including Jewish ones, as well as those who have studied totalitarianism and the constitution, have said that Trump is following the same tactic the Nazis did and the same steps that brought dictators to power in country after country (lying constantly to keep people confused is one of these tactics). He has violated the US constitution in at least 10 major ways. He was in violation of the emoluments clause on day one and has made hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign governments and corporations who frequent his resorts and properties in order to curry favors and special treatment (which he readily grants if they have paid enough). But because he and republicans have put yes men all over the government, they won’t find him guilty of it.

In a Disney cartoon titled “Rescuers Down Under”, a villainous conniving poacher schemes and plans to trick a boy into telling him the location of an eagle he wants to poach. He says, “All I have to do is figure out what the boy wants, promise that to him and then not give it to him.”  This describes Trump to a T.

But as Nomi Prins, a banker who was worked with many countries, says, it doesn’t matter a lot who is president. The elite powerful control presidents in various ways, especially if he has no moral backbone. And they are doing exactly that with Trump. And because they are addicted to greed and power and don’t care about the common people, people are dying in most of the decisions that Trump makes. Here’s a rough summary of a few of the ways Trump’s policies are harming and killing people and the children of the next generation.

1) A BRIEF PARTIAL BODY COUNT FROM REPUBLICAN/TRUMP POLICIES

A)   TRUMP’S MAFIA CONNECTIONS AND KILLINGS

Trump has a history of people around him dying, esp. if they have evidence of his criminal activities. Before Trump became president, quite a number of people with information about Trump’s criminal activities died in suspicious circumstances such as three executives who had incriminating evidence against Trump, dying in a rented helicopter crash. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Essay:Trump_Bodycount

But this is only a drop in the bucket compared to how many people are dying now, because now he has far more power than ever before and his corrupt and immoral policies affect the lives of many millions and sometimes billions of people.

B)   POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP ARE THE TOP CAUSE OF ABORTION

Many support republicans because of abortion. But Bible principles and scientific research show that policies of republicans are the biggest cause of abortion worldwide and that in America the biggest declines came under Obama. Other ways are much more effective at reducing abortions than supporting republicans, especially sharing truths of God, following Bible economics and looking for ways to help pregnant women in trouble at local crisis centers.

Why is abortion highest under republicans? The Bible says that greed causes all evil (1 Tim. 6:10), brings grief to families (Prov. 15:27), causes fighting/violence and death (Prov. 28:25, Ez. 45:9, Is. 5:7,8, Hab. 2:5) and much more evil. This means that greed is the top cause of all the evils above, including abortion, capitalism, Marxism, secularism, the elite wealthy and their corruption that destroys freedom, racism, environmental destruction, war and all other evils. So if you really want to reduce/stop all these evil injustices, you have to identify the party that is supporting greed the most and oppose it as the root of all evil, and work through church and local Christian efforts to reduce poverty. Greed causes abortion, since poverty is the primary cause in ~75% of abortions. Greed is the primary cause of racism, because oppressors make ~$182 billion from racism every year. It is similar for others.
 

The fact is that the Republican party openly supports giving trillions to the wealthy for no work done (they call it trickle down economics). The Bible strictly and repeatedly forbids governments from favoring the wealthy and that greed will cause poverty (Prov. 22:16). We know that poverty is the primary cause of up to 75% of abortions. This is the most lethal form of greed on planet earth. This is also why abortion usually sky rockets under republicans and in America it declines most under democrats. The biggest declines ever were under Obama for example.

My democrat friends should care about the issue of abortion as well, because even if one does not consider a fetus to be fully human, science shows that abortion is very harmful to the women who have them in significant ways both physical (increasing risks of cancer and other diseases) and psychological (increases depression/suicide, etc). So all should be united in trying to stop abortion as much as possible.

These are 2 brilliant links on this issue.

Phil Vischer from Holy Post is strongly conservative and anti abortion, and has a brilliant video on why putting republicans in power hasn’t and likely won’t overturn Roe v. Wade and isn’t the best way to reduce abortions.

https://www.facebook.com/PhilVischer/posts/2802425566526684

I have a website here that shows 15 reasons from the Bible and science why Republicans are the biggest cause of abortion.

Vischer and some other conservatives like David French basically show with evidence that

1) Republicans have had majorities on the supreme court for 49 of the last 50 years, sometimes 8 or 9 justices on their side, but still have not overturned Roe v. Wade. Why? The judicial principle of stare decisis means that justices are very unlikely to go against past rulings. So pinning hopes on the supreme court is a fairy tale

2) Roe didn’t make abortion legal, and overturning Roe wouldn’t make abortion illegal. At best overturning Roe vs. Wade might reduce abortions by ~12%.

3) State laws in Texas reduced abortion by 28% there. Laws improving health care and reducing poverty in democrat Delaware reduced it by 37% there.

4) Abortions have gone down under every president in the last 40 years. Abortion went down most under Obama.

5) What people do day to day to aid women in trouble is more important than who is president or supreme court justices. Helping at local women’s crisis or abuse centers could reduce abortion far more than national politics.mmbut many prolofe people don’t spend time or money on this even though it is more effective.


Also, understand that Trump did NOT defund Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood received record-high taxpayer funding in 2019(https://www.foxnews.com/politics/planned-parenthood-record-abortions-government-funding), performed a record-high number of abortions, and its affiliates received $80 million in coronavirus bailouts earlier this year (https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/05/23/planned-parenthood-sba-ppp-loans/?arc404=true).   

See also David French’s article on why republican presidents aren’t really any significant factor in reducing abortion here.
https://frenchpress.thedispatch.com/p/do-pro-lifers-who-reject-trump-have

Stanford researchers found that in 26 countries during republican administrations “abortion rates rose among women in countries highly exposed…a rise of approximately 40%.” Dr. Yana Rodgers from Rutgers analyzed abortion rates around the world under republican administrations which slash funding for women’s health care clinics worldwide and her research showed that under Republicans, “Analyzing abortion data from 51 developing countries between 2001 and 2008 — which encompassed the reproductive decisions of about 6.3 million women — I found that women in Latin America were three times more likely to have an abortion” and in Africa it was two times higher. These are some of the references for the above facts:

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/langlo/article/PIIS2214-109X(19)30267-0/fulltext


The combination of poverty which is the top reason for up to 75% of abortions, women being desperate and unable to pay to support another life, and unplanned pregnancies due to women being unable to access health care clinics combines to consistently cause the highest rates of abortion under republicans. And Trump’s administration has set records for the highest levels of abortion ever seen, precisely because his policies have been more based on greed than any before him.

UNDER REPUBLICANS RECENTLY

The conservative organization “The Heritage Center” acknowledges that the highest number of abortions ever reported in US history happened in 2017-18, which is of course when Trump was president while the CDC and Focus on the Family have shown that the lowest rates of abortion happened under Obama. References for all of this are below.

“Planned Parenthood affiliates performed 345,672 abortions from Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 30, 2018—the highest number of abortions ever reported in a single year.”

https://www.heritage.org/life/commentary/planned-parenthood-sets-new-record-abortions-single-year

UNDER DEMOCRATS RECENTLY

All statistics measuring abortion in the U.S. — the rate, the ratio to live births, and the absolute number — reached a “historic low” in 2016, according to new data released Wednesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/us-abortion-rate-number-of-abortions-in-us-hits-historic-low-per-centers-for-disease-control-study-today-2019-11-27/

Under Obama, we have had the lowest abortion rates ever.

“In 2015, the number of abortions was at its lowest since 1976 – and had dropped almost in half in the last 20 years.” https://www.focusonthefamily.com/socialissues/life-issues/dignity-of-human-life/abortion-statistics

The graph is from the CDC’s 2015 Abortion Surveillance Report. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/67/ss/ss6713a1.htm

Looking at the graph on the site above shows that the biggest decreases in 20 years have been under Obama with ~2-5% decreases every year he was in office.

Abortion rates in the U.S. have reached a historic low, according to new numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Wednesday. According to the report, the decline in abortions was seen in women across all age groups. For women ages 15 to 44, the abortion rate (the number of abortions per 1,000 women) dropped 26% between 2006 and 2015, the most recent year for which data is available. This translates to a significant drop in the yearly number of abortions over the decade ending in 2015. In 2006, medical professionals reported performing 842,855 abortions. By 2015, that number dropped to 638,169, according to the CDC. The drop in abortions was especially pronounced among teenagers…From 2006 to 2015, the abortion rate for women ages 15 to 19 dropped by more than half.

https://time.com/5461616/abortions-lowest-rate-cdc/

If you are against abortion, you have to be against republicans because by Bible principles and research their policies are the top #1 cause of abortion worldwide and in America as well as every other major evil on this earth (due to America having more power and influence than any other nation) including the destruction of families, destruction of the environment, increased bombings by the military, increased poverty, putting many Catholics in power in the Supreme court and judiciary and powerful positions in government, etc. Democrats have several serious areas where they are in opposition to God’s principles as well, and are complicit in many of the same harmful policies to a lesser degree. But the republican policies are according to the Bible and science significantly more devastating and lethal.

C)    POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP ARE A TOP CAUSE OF HEALTH PROBLEMS/DEATHS

Bad health is a major factor in ~41,000,000 deaths per year.[11] And most of this bad health is caused by corporations that promote unhealthy products. Republicans help fund these corporations and give billions in handouts to them every year. Democrats are not that far behind, but pale in comparison to the funding by republicans of corporations that sell products that are deadly to our health and environment. 

For example, “Top White House figures – including the vice-president and health secretary – have deep ties to an industry whose donations began pouring in on day one.” “Tobacco companies tighten hold on Washington under Trump https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jul/13/tobacco-industry-trump-administration-ties

“In a scathing piece by the Guardian, the Trump administration was taken to task with a plethora of facts connecting it to the tobacco industry. It turns out that over the last 35 years, the president has had a mutually supportive relationship with tobacco companies. The same is true of other big names in the GOP. These ties have allowed tobacco lobbyists to play a role in policymaking…Trump’s ties to the tobacco industry go back to 1995. Trump has reportedly made $2.1 million from his investments in the industry, revealed in his recent financial disclosures https://columbusfreepress.com/article/how-tobacco-companies-have-contributed-trump-administration


D)   POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP ARE THE TOP CAUSE OF POVERTY DEATHS

Poverty/debt is a major factor in ~13-18,000,000 deaths per year.[12] The American Poor People’s Campaign in America has documented that ~700 people are dying every day due to poverty. This is due largely to many policies that the Republican party instituted, such as trickle down economics, massively subsidizing corporations and Wall Street but not main street, putting most of the tax burden on the middle class and poor while giving the wealthy a myriad of loop holes, etc.

The Poor Peoples Campaign says:

“If you were to try to design a policy agenda that had the goal of killing the poorest, most vulnerable Americans. I don’t know that I could come up with a more effective agenda than what the Trump administration has done over the last three years.”

America’s poor becoming more destitute under Trump, UN report says  https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/06/22/us/america-poverty-un-report/index.html

E)    POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP POISON THE ENVIRONMENT AND KILL MILLIONS

Pollution is a major factor in      ~12,600,000 deaths per year.[13] Trump’s administration has systematically stripped the government of all sorts of environmental protections. These will cause large numbers of deaths for years to come.

From relaxing rules on toxic chemicals in toys and consumer products to opening parks for drilling and mining to eliminating rules on pollution, Trump’s policies are just a disaster for the environment and people’s safety in almost every area you look at for the sake of naked greed. And environmental pollution of land, air and water is a major cause of ~13 million deaths every year.


A report by the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center at New York University’s school of law published in March said the Trump administration had “set its sights on watering down or outright repealing a half-dozen health and environmental rules critical to the health and welfare of all Americans as well as the planet”. 
1) Trump withdrew from Paris environmental agreement. 
2) Slash the size of national monuments like Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase-Escalante, the biggest elimination of public lands protection in America’s history and also allowed more mining on public lands and planned to sell some of it off – despite previously vowing not to.
3) Trump removed key provisions from the Endangered Species Act. The Environmental Protection Agency is in the process of finalizing plans to dismantle the Clean Power Plan 
4) Cuts to clean water protections The Trump administration plans to remove protections from thousands of America’s streams and millions of acres of wetlands, which will enable pollution to enter drinking water. Under the proposal, fewer waterways would require permits to pollute – including agricultural runoff and industry waste. 
5) More methane In September 2018, the Trump administration announced its plans to repeal rules that aim to restrict methane leaks on public and tribal lands.

F)    POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP ARE THE TOP CAUSE OF SUICIDES

Trump’s policies in trade and environment are destroying farms across America, destroying independence and causing a major increase in suicides of farmers. Because of his refusal to prepare people for the corona virus, despite knowing full well how dangerous it is, and because he has refused to help small businesses and families like he helped corporations, many small businesses have had to close, leading to yet more suicides.

ON FARMS
“American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said, “China’s announcement that it will not buy any agricultural products from the United States is a body blow to thousands of farmers and ranchers who are already struggling to get by.” He added, “In the last 18 months alone, farm and ranch families have dealt with plunging commodity prices, awful weather and tariffs higher than we have seen in decades. Farm Bureau economists tell us exports to China were down by $1.3 billion during the first half of the year.” The recent decision by Trump’s EPA to exempt an additional 31 small oil refineries from incorporating ethanol, which is made from corn and accounts for 40% of total corn use per the USDA, will put even more stress on farmers.”..

The Farm Bureau report showed that farmer bankruptcies had risen in every region of the U.S. for the year ending in June except for the Southwest….Patty Edelburg, vice president of the Washington-based National Farmers Union, which represents about 200,000 U.S. farms. In the interview she said, “It has been insane. We’ve had a lot of farmers—a lot more bankruptcies going on, a lot more farmer suicides. These things are highlighting many of the news stories in our local news.”…In a CNN interview in May, Minnesota soybean farmer Bill Gordon said, “With these added tariffs farmers are not getting their credit lines renewed, banks are coming in and foreclosing on their farms, taking their family living away and it’s too much for some of them. We have seen a definite increase in the suicide rate and depression in farmers in the U.S., especially in the Upper Midwest.”  https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2019/08/30/amid-trump-tariffs-farm-bankruptcies-and-suicides-rise/#240c66322bc8

“In 2017, 14 out of every 100,000 Americans died by suicide, according to a new analysis released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics. That’s a 33% increase since 1999, and the highest age-adjusted suicide rate recorded in the U.S. since 1942. (Rates were even higher during the Great Depression, hitting a century peak of 21.9 in 1932.) https://time.com/5609124/us-suicide-rate-increase/


“Suicide rates in the United States are at their highest since World War II and female suicide rates are rising more rapidly than those involving men, according to new data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Already a public health crisis, suicide before this latest data from CDC was the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.1 The rate of suicide is highest in middle-age white men in particular.2 suicide rates increased 25% across the United States between 1999 and 2016.3”

A 2019 study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology found that between 2009 and 2017, rates of depression rose by more than 60 percent among those ages 14 to 17, and 47 percent among those ages 12 to 13. This isn’t just a matter of increased diagnoses. The number of children and teenagers who were seen in emergency rooms with suicidal thoughts or having attempted suicide doubled between 2007 and 2015.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/17/opinion/sunday/childhood-suicide-depression-anxiety.html

G)   POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP ARE THE TOP CAUSE OF WAR & HAVE KILLED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

Since America controls the world’s economy and assassinates leaders or invades countries that don’t bow to its demands as many ex-military men have testified to (such as ex-CIA economic hitman John Perkins who says that he was working to do this, offering nation’s leaders bribes on one hand if they allowed American corporations to exploit their resources and people and assassination and war on the other if they didn’t), Trump’s policies are having devastating effects on billions of lives and the full estimate will only be known after many years of research, and the complete tragic loss of life only God will know completely.  

Trump promised to bomb all of America’s “enemies” like crazy, openly talked about killing the families of terrorists, which is a blatant violation of both Bible standards and international humanitarian standards/laws like the Geneva Conventions as well as other violence against innocents. The nonprofit monitoring group Airwars shows that , the first seven months of the Trump administration have already resulted in more civilian deaths than under the entirety of the Obama administration…The Obama administration carefully crafted a deliberate set of rules guiding the use of force. In 2013, Obama released the Presidential Policy Guidance for Approving Direct Action Against Terrorist Targets (PPG), which created specific rules for determining when the use of force against terrorists was legally justified. Then, in 2016, Obama issued an executive order on civilian harm that established heightened standards to minimize civilian casualties from military actions, and required the public release of information pertaining to strikes against terrorist targets.

You can see pictures of ~8,000 of innocent people who have been murdered by Trump’s war for empire here:
https://airwars.org/conflicting-truth


Trump’s policies have killed more than 100,000 innocent people in ONLY Yemen and Venezuela ALONE (and more in other countries) because he is a pawn of the neocon warhawks and the 1% who make massive profits from war while naive young men are ground up as cannon fodder for the greed of the military industrial complex that Eisenhower warned about long ago. This has been done by all presidents in modern US history to some extent, but is much worse under Trump because he:

1) unchained the military from concerns for the safety of civilians to a far greater degree than any president ever before.

2) he has expanded or started military wars,cancelled rules meant to protect innocent civilians from being killed and

3) He is gungho for war and boasts about killing any who criticize or oppose America AND their families and children without any due process of law, conviction of crime, recognition of American atrocities and much more. Just loves brutal destruction of life.

4) He has no moral spine at all and is a pawn of the super rich exploiters. So he is willing to enact sanctions for greed and to economically cripple other nations whose oil the USA (and esp. the Koch brothers) want to control, even though this is illegal by US law, OAS law and UN law.

Here are the facts about how many innocent people have died, including many children, because of the murderous policies that Trump has enacted. You have to realize that sanctions ARE are form of murder. In Iraq, a war which was started based on lies and we KNOW it was for oil now, 500,000 children died because of sanctions. Republican Madelyn Albright said…the cost was worth it. Really? Would it have been worth it if it were her child dead…or yours?

VENEZUELA–40,000 DEAD BECAUSE OF TRUMP

The sanctions “have inflicted, and continue to inflict, very serious harm to human life and health, including an estimated more than 40,000 deaths from 2017–2018.” That means 2019 deaths haven’t been added to this estimate. The year’s nearly half over, and more aggressive sanctions went into effect this past January.

YEMEN–60,000 DEAD BECAUSE OF TRUMP

“More than 60,000 people have been killed in Yemen in the last two years [2017-18].”

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/12/12/yemen-death-toll-six-times-higher-estimated/

Trump is a major supporter of the Yemen war and vetoed a resolution to end US support for the Yemen war.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/apr/16/trump-yemen-war-veto-military-aid

See data collated by the Armed Conflict Location & Event.  https://www.acleddata.com/tag/yemen/

Both left and right news media mostly ignore Yemen war. 10 children die every 10 seconds because of it. Trump vetoed bill to stop war.

H)   POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP ARE THE TOP CAUSE OF COVID-19 DEATHS

Trump’s decisions about what to do in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic have been lethal to ~200,000 people. Whether it’s his decisions to dismantle agencies that were supposed to watch and prepare for pandemics, his willful failure to prepare the American people when he knew what was coming and his decision to lie constantly after he knew the facts, making decisions weeks or months after he knew the dangers, real innocent people have died after most of his decisions. There is a Trump death clock that counts how many people have died due to Trump’s lies to the American people.
https://trumpdeathclock.com/

This is the most conservative estimate of how many died. If Trump had acted like countries like Vietnam or some in Africa that had no deaths until August or others with only a few like S. Korea, America could have avoided almost all of the deaths.

Bob Woodward, famous for exposing Nixon’s crimes in Watergate, interviewed Trump and proves with audio tapes that Trump knew it was an extremely dangerous virus. Yet he did almost nothing for weeks and months.
“On February 7, It goes through air, Bob. That’s always tougher than the touch. You know, the touch – you don’t have to touch things, right? But the air, you just breathe the air. That’s how it’s passed. And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than your – you know, your – even your strenuous flus.” Trump Tells Woodward He Deliberately Downplayed Coronavirus Threat https://www.npr.org/2020/09/10/911368698/trump-tells-woodward-he-deliberately-downplayed-coronavirus-threat 

And Trump has continued lying about the COVID-19 virus in many ways, including that it would disappear in the summer, was not more serious than the flu, and many others.

All of the President’s Lies about the Corona Virus https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/10/trumps-lies-about-coronavirus/608647/

Most importantly, Trump and his advisors and many scientists have not told people about the best way to prevent the virus, making immune systems strong, or how to do it. The best way is by following simple health principles in the Bible described briefly here: www.newstart.com/covid-19

BIDEN PROBLEMS
While Trump is complicit in almost every evil imaginable, Biden has been almost as bad and destructive in siding with major powers of evil on the planet. Biden has supported banks and corporations and enabled them to exploit and crush families. He is a massive supporter of wars for greed that were based on egregious lies. He supports the harmful evil of abortion. He has opposed principles of Civil Rights and supported racism. He has played a major role in putting many people in jail who were either innocent or only committed minor offenses. He has opposed civil liberties and increased state surveillance. He was a major factor in restricting immigration. He has many connections to the oil/fossil companies that are making climate change far more destructive.

Like Trump, Biden is largely unrepentant of his many policies that have devastated many lives. The linked article below gives documentation of the above facts.

DEMOCRATS–YOU REALLY DO NOT WANT TO NOMINATE JOE BIDEN
https://www.currentaffairs.org/2020/03/democrats-you-really-do-not-want-to-nominate-joe-biden

Biden and DJT are two-sides of the same coin, differing only in style and party label. They’re both unapologetically pro-war, pro-Wall Street, pro-the military/industrial/security/media complex, pro-corporatism over the general welfare, pro-police state control, and anti-what just societies cherish. Biden is Hillary with a gender difference,…notably endless wars against invented enemies, force-fed neoliberal harshness on ordinary Americans, and police state crackdowns on nonbelievers.

CONCLUSION
If you are against deaths of innocent people you have to be against republicans because by Bible principles and research their policies of greed, corruption, violence for empire and so much more are the top #1 cause of pretty much all major causes of death, including the above causes. Democrats have several serious areas where they are in opposition to God’s principles as well, and are complicit in many of the same harmful policies to a lesser degree. So don’t take this as endorsement for them. Supporting 3rd parties may send a better message and make more substantial changes than supporting the 2 party oligarchy/duopoly. But the republican policies are according to the Bible and science significantly more devastating and lethal. And so if you were to vote for the lesser of 2 evils, you would have to vote against republicans first and foremost.
