Twitter Censors Tim Tebow’s Inspirational Bible Video


Reported By Johnathan Jones | Published July 27, 2020 at 2:15pm

Twitter censored an inspirational post by former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow asking Christians to hold onto their faith during times of personal tribulation. The former Heisman Trophy winner tweeted a simple message Tuesday: Keep your faith intact, and remember that all of the Bible’s messengers struggled.

“This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But, you have the opportunity to turn however you’re being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly!” he wrote, alongside a video message.

But Tebow’s tweet was censored by Twitter.

“The following media includes potentially sensitive content,” read a warning from the social media giant that covered the video portion of his post.

The Western Journal reached out to Twitter for comment about why the video post was labeled with a warning but did not immediately receive a response. It’s difficult to discern what anyone could find “sensitive” about the content in Tebow’s video.

In the post, Tebow, breathing heavily after an apparent workout, called on Christians to turn to God during times of difficulty.

“Bible believers, when we look at the Bible, and we see a lot of the heroes, a lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly,” he said.

“So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time,” Tebow continued.

“But this could be your time for learning. This could be your time for growing. This could be your time for adapting. This could be the time that is a test for you, but tomorrow it gets to turn into a testimony,” he said.

“Because you never know what God is doing with your life. You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible, when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough,’ then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life,” the former Florida Gator said.

Tebow then appealed to those who might be struggling.

“Maybe that is the next step for you. Maybe that is tomorrow. Maybe that is next week, maybe that is next year,” he said. “But when we quit, we will never know what we missed out on. We will never know what’s in store for us.

“Because maybe that breakthrough is coming tomorrow. Maybe it’s next year. Maybe you have a little bit more time going through a hard time in your life.

“But I can tell you this: We get to trust an unknown future to a known God, because we know how much he loves us. We know what he did for us in sending his son. He gave his best for us. …

“When we remember that, then we can have trust in the character of our God, because we know how much he loves us. That’s how we get through the tough times.

Tebow concluded his video message by saying, “Right where you’re at, whatever you’re doing, whatever you’re going through, he loves you. You were enough for his son to die on the cross, that’s how much you’re loved. Hold onto that in your time of need.”

Seventeen Burned Bodies Appear Near Border as Democrats Say We Don’t Need a Wall

Democrats and the media immediately set about disputing Trump’s labeling of the border situation as a “crisis,” part of their overtly biased effort to instantly “fact-check” every word or statistic uttered by the president in the brief speech, and — coincidentally? — all seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: There is no real crisis at the border, only a “manufactured crisis” brought about purposefully by Trump’s actions, or some such nonsense like that.

Of course, to follow along with the media’s bouncing ball on this one, everyone must ignore the fact that the same liberal media loudly trumpeted the “crisis” at the border in 2013 and 2014 — when they were supporting comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty for illegal immigrants — or their hollering about a “crisis” on the border through much of 2017 and 2018 when Trump began to crack down on illegal border crossings and deportations ticked up.

In truth, however, the only thing “manufactured” about all of this is the Democrats ‘obstinate opposition to the president and their refusal to acknowledge the basic and undeniable facts of what is occurring on and around the porous and lightly defended southern border.

Case in point, Reuters reported on Thursday that at least 20 dead bodies — 17 of which had been badly burned — were discovered on Wednesday in the Mexican city of Ciudad Miguel Aleman, which is located a mere 56 miles across the Rio Grande River from the U.S. border city of McAllen, Texas, where President Trump visited with U.S. Border Patrol agents and other officials on Thursday.

Mexican authorities are reportedly investigating what has all the appearances of a deadly battle between members of two rival gangs in the area, gangs that routinely play in a role in the illicit cross-border excursions that bring illegal aliens, criminals, drugs, weapons and even terrorists into this nation.

The suspected gang-related massacre even drew a mention from Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at his daily news conference on Thursday, and though he didn’t offer up much in the way of specifics, he did say that security officials would provide more information at a later date or time.

Reuters noted that according to one Mexican security official, five burned-out vehicles were also discovered along with the 20 dead bodies, though the outlet noted that a separate Mexican security official had reportedly counted as many as 21 dead bodies at the scene. The grisly scene was located in the Tamaulipas region of Mexico, one of the more violent states in that nation that has been controlled by dangerous criminal cartels and gangs for years. Those groups exert a great deal of control over drug and human trafficking across the border in that region, and are well-known for running extortion rackets on local residents and exploiting migrants passing through the area for whatever can be gained.

When not engaged in those border-related crimes, the cartels and gangs are fighting violently among each other or waging war against Mexican security forces, violence that has claimed tens of thousands of lives — some innocent, some not so much — over the years.

Obviously, incidents like this one — and this bloody incident is far from an isolated occurrence — are what President Trump is referencing when he speaks of the “crisis” at the border while demanding Congress appropriate the necessary funds to construct a border wall where needed and to increase border security measures in other ways.

Yet, based solely on their reflexive opposition to all things Trump, many talking heads in the liberal media staunchly refuse to acknowledge as a “crisis” what their own colleagues are quietly reporting on a near-daily basis.

Indeed, some in the media have even adopted a sort of “Don’t believe your lying eyes” attitude when it comes to their anti-Trump reporting on the border, as evidenced by a ridiculous tweet from CNN’s Jim Acosta that actually seemed to prove the president’s point about how necessary and effective a border wall truly is.

In several other tweets after that, Acosta hyped up how safe the border town of McAllen is — while studiously ignoring the obvious fact that McAllen is safe because it has a border wall and other barriers obstructing those who would illicitly cross over.

Unfortunately, the wall and other barriers along the border in the McAllen region that keep it so safe only extend for so long, and eventually give way to mere chain-link fencing or nothing at all, meaning those who wish to cross the border illegally need only walk around the end to do so. Anyone with common sense and intellectual honesty can plainly see that and realize Trump is absolutely correct to want to address this security crisis post haste.

Dennis Miller Posts Hilarious Idea for Trump to Get Warm Welcome in Calif… Dems Not Laughing


Reported By George Upper | March 14, 2018 at 8:07am

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/dennis-miller-posts-hilarious-idea-for-trump-to-get-warm-welcome-in-calif-dems-not-laughing/

Leave it to Dennis Miller to cut right to the heart of the matter of President Donald Trump’s trip to the People’s Republic of California.

Trump was in the deep blue state for the stated reason of personally inspecting the prototypes of the border wall that have been erected in San Diego by six competing companies, Reuters reported. Unsurprisingly, the president was greeted by a group of protesters, and Miller suggested that there was only one thing Trump could have done if he wanted a warmer reception.

“Quite frankly, for Trump to receive a nice welcome in California he’s have to come in illegally,” the “Saturday Night Live” alum tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

Trump also met with representatives of the U.S. Border Patrol and delivered remarks, largely on the subject of U.S. border security, during his visit.

Miller, like actor James Woods, has been known to make insightful — not to mention funny — remarks on Twitter on many occasions. His most recent Twitter rant was on the subject of Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her claims to be descended from Cherokee ancestors.

Which, in turn, led to this response:

We love Dennis Miller, but I think Michael Osinski might actually have won Twitter this time.

Breaking: NFL Just Got Catastrophic News About Ticket Sales. It just keeps getting worse for the Goodell and the gang.


Reported

At an Alabama rally Friday night, President Donald J. Trump argued that NFL owners should release any team member who “disrespects our flag.” Apparently, America agrees.

Since the president called on team owners to take action — and those same owners, along with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, essentially thumbed their collective nose at him — ticket sales have plummeted.

Online ticket re-seller TickPick told Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner that NFL sales for Week Four games dropped nearly 18 percent since prior to Trump’s statement.

According to the Examiner, TickPick cited two numbers damning to the NFL’s response to Trump and the recent national anthem controversy:

17.9 percent decrease in NFL orders this week compared to the previous week.

Last year the drop was 10.8 percent in orders on Monday & Tuesday following Week Three games.

Bedard referred to the sharp decline as the “Trump Effect.”

Trump said at the Alabama rally that he would “love to see” players fired who participated in protests, such as kneeling, during the pre-game playing of the national anthem, according to NPR.

“‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired,” Trump said he’d like to hear NFL owners say. “‘He’s fired.’”

After those statements, many, many more NFL players — some joined by coaches and other staff members — publicly took a knee during the national anthem, bringing even more attention to the controversy and apparently angering many fans.

Nonetheless, Goodell didn’t appear ready to back down.

“The way we reacted today, and this weekend, made me proud,” Goodell said Sunday of the NFL’s response to Trump’s statement, which he called “divisive,” according to Sport Illustrated. “I’m proud of our league.”

“We have seen a massive decrease in NFL ticket purchases this past week in comparison to years past,” TickPick’s Jack Slingland told the Examiner. “Week 3 seems to usually have less ticket orders than week 2, but this year ticket purchases are down more than 7 percent from this time last year.”

“While we can’t specify if this decrease is due to the president’s comments, player and owner protests, play on the field, or simply the continued division of consumer’s media attention, the conversation around the NFL this week has focused on the president’s comments as well as the players’ and owners’ reaction,” Slingland said.

“As viewers continue to abandon their NFL Sunday habits, both the number of ticket sales and the purchase price of tickets will drop,” he predicted.

Others agreed:

Donald Trump Tweets Pic of Lady Supporter… But Check Out Her T-Shirt!

As Donald Trump continues to be the man to beat in the Republican presidential primary race, the liberal media has been having a field day claiming that women hate Trump because of his allegedly sexist remarks. The assumption by many in the liberal world is that Hillary Clinton would easily win a hypothetical match-up with Trump because she will gain most of the women’s vote. The only problem with this thought is that reality is proving to be much different.

Women are supporting Trump, and in much greater numbers than most political analysts would have predicted. Trump has been quick to jump on this to show the world that he isn’t just running a campaign for white males.

Most recently, Trump tweeted a photo of a woman at one of his rallies wearing a special T-shirt:

Hillary fior Prison

The shirt displayed a “Hillary for Prison 2016” slogan that has become popular among conservatives who still remember how her actions led to the deaths of Americans during the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

Hillary Clinton — with her family’s baggage — is arguably one of the worst presidential candidates the Democrats have put forward in a long time, and that’s saying something, considering her closest rival is a self-proclaimed socialist who may or may not be certifiably insane.

Hillary has a long track record of breaking the law and getting away with it. It’s about time that someone put a stop to her lawbreaking and threw her in jail where she belongs.H-Cell-600-LI

Maybe Trump will be that person, maybe not — but one thing is certain: There is quite possibly nothing more dangerous than Hillary Clinton as president. We all know the havoc she wrought as secretary of state. Imagine what the world would look like with her in the Oval Office.

TRUMP WON THE DEM’S DEBATE: With The Most Epic Tweet Of The Night


waving flagPosted on October 14, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-10-14 at 7.01.03 AMDonald Trump wins the debate even when he is isn’t in it.

While Tuesday night’s CNN political debate was intended as an opportunity for one of the Democrat Party presidential hopefuls to separate him or herself from the rest of the pack, the best line of the night came from a man who was not even in the room with the debaters nor in the same party.

In effect, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump stole the show with a perfectly-timed tweet explaining that Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb, and Lincoln Chafee spent their night talking about the all the free stuff they were going to give away–including ObamaCare benefits and tuition breaks for illegal immigrants–without once mentioning what they would do to make conditions better for U.S. military veterans.

So Trump tweeted: “Notice that illegal immigrants will be given ObamaCare and free college tuition but nothing has been mentioned about our VETERANS #DemDebate” It was the best line of the night by far.(Breitbart)

Va. Dem. suggests killing Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Ann Coulter on Twitter

by Mike Dickinson Getty

May 28, 2014

tweet 01

 

The tweet didn’t sit too well with some, who took Dickinson to task for appearing to threaten elected officials.

“[D]ude, did you just threaten the life of a sitting US Senator?” one person asked.

“Mikey thinks he is above the law since he is ‘progressive,'” another person added.

This is the second time Dickinson has engaged in the Twitter game where players are given a list of well-known people and then asked to state whether they would have sex, marry or kill the person. In mid-May, Dickinson issued a similar tweet listing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, conservative columnist Michelle Malkin and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

“Picking between @GOPLeader Eric cantor & tea @DaveBratVA7th is like a (expletive deleted), Marry, Kill between @michellemalkin @ehasselbeck & @SarahPalinUSA,” he tweeted.

According to Urban Dictionary, the game “is not intended for literal thoughts,” but it’s beginning to appear that Dickinson really has fantasies of murdering conservatives, given the nature of his tweets. On Monday, for example, he issued tweets fantasizing about being part of the Civil War while calling members of the Tea Party “traitors” and “terrorists.”

In other tweets, he expressed a desire to “eradicate” the Tea Party and those who watch Fox News, while soliciting support from those who want to see him “decimate” Christians. Dickinson, however, claims his offensive tweets are simply intended to “tweak” conservatives.

“In sports it’s called you punk someone. I punk all my haters everyday. I play you for fools. You actually take time and reply lol,” he tweeted.

So says the man who once threatened an elected GOP state delegate, suggested supporters violate the law by calling police to harass members of the Tea Party and posted pictures of license plates of Tea Party members for identification and harassment. Now, he appears to be suggesting that certain elected officials be murdered.

One Twitter user summed up Dickinson’s short, hate-filled messages: “You just need attention, you’re like a dog that chews shoes, only people love dogs.”
