No matter where you come from in this election

God is still on the throne of heaven and heaven still rules.



Thank you for this refreshing interview!  I am so saddened that politics has become the dominant religion in America - on all sides.  I so appreciate Erikson's commitment to growth.  Too many people refuse to be sharpened or challenged and only listen to or read those they agree with.


Let us look at your allegations of lying for you need to be called out on this.  First, it is very foolish to call somebody a liar unless you have clear evidence, which you don’t have. You claim he lied about Obama’s birth certificate. Obama’s grandmother said he was born in Kenya. There is a video showing her stating this. Things were a lot more lose back then so could his mother hide him as an infant under her clothing and return back to the USA where she then brought him into the hospital claiming he was born at home. There were also a number of questions about Obama’s time in college which seem mysterious. I bring all this up because a lot of information was floating on the web - very convincingly so. Trump May have believed it which would not make it a lie. Are you a mind reader and know Trump’s deep thoughts? How exactly did Trump lie when he referenced an article written in National Review?  The article claimed that Cruz’s dad passed out fliers with Lee Harvey Oswald. Trump refer to the article questioning if it was true, but saying it was very terrible to do.  Trump was masterful at getting Cruz all riled up, effectively making him look unpresidential. Shortly after cruz dropped out.  Trump’s referencing an article is not lying. You also claim Trump lied about his tax returns.  In what way did he lie?  Did he say he was going to give out his tax returns, and then change his mind? How is changing his mind lying? You also claimed he lied about Stormy Daniels. Were you there to see what happened? No, you weren’t so what makes you think you know he was lying. How exactly did he lie about the Ukraine call? I read the transcripts and nothing he said was out of order? Lying about COVID-19? How rediculous! Lying about the election? Again this is rediculou! It is sad Clearly, you are just reading the liberal media and accepting it hook, line and sinker. Shame on you!


Trump lost the election because the left stole it from him!


Facts are facts. If you wish to dispute any of the lies I referenced, I am very willing to correct myself if I am wrong. However, I don't think it's any huge feat to recognize that Trump has a problem telling the truth. Even Ted Cruz figured it out.

“This man is a pathological liar, he doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies … in a pattern that is straight out of a psychology text book, he accuses everyone of lying." -Ted Cruz



Depressing. The  fraud evidence has not yet been heard properly, and now Trump voters, pro-life supporters  are to be quiet.  Sorry, I am one of many whose seen the stories about the long lists of affadavits and the video of vote counts w/ot observers, and in fact, obeservers being blocked, ad nauseaum. Please interview someone you disgree with on this matter.  I am beginning to lose faith in your magazine after decades of subscribing. Apropos, I long ago bailed on David French, a little too cool for school for me. PS Just think, now we have open season on the unborn with taxpayer monies.  Do you folks ever think about the consequences of being quiet?
