Dr. Jerry Falwell, Jr.: Americans Must Unite Behind Trump And Pence Or Suffer Dire Consequences

Dr. Jerry Falwell, Jr., President of Liberty University, was one of Donald Trump’s early movement conservative supporters. On August 19 he published an op-ed in The Washington Post detailing his concerns about the future of America under a Hillary Clinton presidency and why he supports Donald Trump, that article is excerpted here with his permission. 

The policies of Obama and Clinton have made the world unstable and unsafe and created a world stage eerily similar to that of the late 1930s. We could be on the precipice of international conflict like nothing we have Jerry Falwell Jr. Hail Hillaryseen since World War II. Obama and Clinton are the Neville Chamberlains of our time. The deal to make $150 billion available to Iran, the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world and a nation committed to the destruction of Israel, clearing the way for Iran to become a nuclear power, reminds me of Chamberlain’s deal with Hitler in 1938, when the British prime minister declared “peace for our time.” 

Domestically, Obama and Clinton have pushed to $19 trillion the debt that our children and grandchildren will somehow have to find a way to repay. Even our noble law enforcement has been demonized by the Obama administration, and anarchy is erupting in our cities. 

Thank God we now have the opportunity to elect a strong leader, one who is not afraid to call the enemy by its name and to take the battle to that enemy if necessary. 

Continuing the policies of Obama and Clinton internationally and domestically would be the definition of insanity: repeating the same mistakes over and over and expecting a different result. 

I chose to personally support Donald Trump for president early on and referred to him as America’s blue-collar billionaire at the Republican National Convention because of his love for ordinary Americans and his kindness, generosity and bold leadership qualities. My family has grown to love all of the Trumps because they are wonderful people willing to sacrifice much for their country. The public perception of Trump that has been created by the media is simply false. 

We are at a crossroads where our first priority must be saving our nation.  As Churchill did, Trump possesses the resolve to put his country first and to never give up in a world that is increasingly hostile to our values. 

Despite our differences, Americans from all walks of life must unite behind Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence or suffer dire consequences. If Clinton appoints the next few Supreme Court justices, not only will the Second Amendment right to bear arms be effectively lost, but also activist judges will rewrite our Constitution in ways that would make it unrecognizable to our founders. 

And this country will have as its president a person who jeopardized our national security by negligently sending and receiving classified emails on a private server and then repeatedly making inaccurate statements about it, all while her family’s foundation accepted millions of dollars in donations from foreign countries. Will time reveal the quid pro quo? 

Our nation’s future truly hangs in the balance. As far as I am concerned, the credibility of anyone who ignores Clinton’s temperament while attacking Trump’s is suspect… It is naive or deceptive for conservatives to claim that a write-in vote or a third-party vote will not benefit Clinton. 

A vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence is a vote for more freedom and less government, a vote for national security and responsible immigration policy, a vote to finally fight radical Islamic terrorism. It is a vote to rebuild America’s respect overseas and a vote for strict-constructionist and pro-life Supreme Court justices. Remember when Iran held American hostages for 444 days, only to release them the day Ronald Reagan took office? Expect those kinds of results under Donald Trump’s leadership. 

Jerry Falwell Jr. is the President of Liberty University, he is also an attorney admitted to the practice of law before the Supreme Court of the United States and other jurisdictions.

"Dire Consequences'

The 'dire' consequences of which he speaks are BECAUSE of Trump & Pence and every other so called Christian who voted for Trump. The Two candidates running for the office of the president in America are both disgraces to this country. And who is to blame? WE THE PEOPLE who selected them, Republicans, after rejecting a TRUE conservative and a REAL Christian. It's more than 'dire consequences'. It's GOD'S JUDGMENT that's coming to His disobedient people. Just like ancient Israel. "And He Gave them over......"
