Trump's former 'christian liaison' says Deepwater Horizon disaster was God's punishment for Obama Israel division

'You wanna push God's buttons? Start talking about Israel and dividing his land.' said televangelist Frank Amedia, Trump's onetime 'liaison for Christian policy.'

" during the 2016 presidential race, claims the disastrous Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 was God's punishment for President Obama's snubbing of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and support for a two-state solution in Israel.Speaking last week at the National Apostolic and Prophetic Gathering in Cocoa Beach, Florida, Amedia tied a diplomatic slight to one of the greatest environmental crises in United States history.

At the time,news outlets reportedthen-President Barack Obama left contentious talks with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to have dinner with his wife and daughters. In his speech, Amedia blames that snub for both an earthquake in Alaska and the high-pressure methane gas explosion that destroyed BP's Deepwater Horizon oil platform.

Amedia asked his audience."Deepwater Horizon blew up. Now, a few days before that, there was an earthquake in Georgia Sound up in Alaska. The day the Georgia Sound earthquake happened I received the anger of the Lord. And I did because it came out that Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, went in to our White House to visit with our president to talk about the division of the land of Israel. You wanna push God's buttons? Start talking about Israel and dividing his land."

Amedia claims the Lord spoke to him that day, saying"Son, prophesy to the north and to the south and say it across this great span of this great country that I will shake the north and then I will shake the south and I will call from the deep and I will show disaster."

The Alaskan earthquake was the shaking in the north, according to Amedia's prophecy, and the Deepwater Horizon spill was the shake in the south.Amedia added that God told him"until my son [Netanyahu] is received back where he belongs and they take their hands off my land," the leak would not be stopped.

In July 2010, Obama received Netanyahu at the White House for additional talks. But according, the president"focused above all on the prospects for peace and a two-state solution."Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama meet at the White House in 2010.

White House"During our conversation, [Prime Minister Netanyahu] once again reaffirmed his willingness to engage in serious negotiations with the Palestinians around what I think should be the goal, not just of the two principals involved, but the entire world," said Obama in a statement."And that is two states living side by side in peace and security."

Amedia claimed that"six days later, the well stopped" leaking oil.In reality, Obama hosted Netanyahu on July 6 and BP did not announce the well was sealed until September 19. A sealing cap was affixed on July 12 but, according to,the company was still stemming the flow of oil for months afterward.

With over 130 million gallons released into the Gulf of Mexico, the Deepwater Horizon disaster is considered the largest oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. Eleven were believed to have died in the explosion, with at least 17 more requiring medical treatment.

Amedia has made outrageous claims before: He once said that, with the power of prayer, he single-handedly prevented a tidal wave generated from the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake from hitting Hawaii. In 2018, he raised eyebrows with astoryabout resurrecting an ant that he had crushed during a trip to Israel.

No wonder the percent of atheists and agnostics has risen in this country. Trump and God is like water and oil doesn't go together at ALL And what is Trump our punishment for ? Did God give a reason as to why is punishing the World by installing realDonaldTrump as President of USA? Not saying it had anything to do with God, but how do u know it didn’t? Seems to me u are doing the same thing as this God whisper u speak of!

Wow that guy needs to see a psychiatrist. Everybody knows that it happened because they were trying to cut costs because they were over budget and wouldn't listen to the people with the knowledge and experience on the situation totally preventable 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

These religious nutcases need to just shut up. They obviously have no idea or don’t care how stupid they sound. And here I thought Christ changed the world and god rid of God playing directly with humans. That is such an Old TestMent thing and therefore deserves a horse hockey True no it was caused by the lax oversight and enforcement by the bush administration..

This Republican Cult 😐RepublicanCult Anytime someone says god did something in retribution I know the speaker is full of shit. Sadly there are those who will believe crap like that. At best god if it were real is entirely indifferent to man. TrumpKingofIdiots BanSemiAutoMaticWeapons TaxLicenseInsureGunOwnerShip

How did he determine what it was punishment for? I really dont know what to think of these conservative Christian leaders anymore? Am i supposed to believe that God told him that? God punished Egypt with plagues and locusts and took the first born male of the Egyptians and all Americans get is a blown up oil rig I demand equality

Look out for Trump’s response 🤷🏾‍♀️ He really needs to stop using meth ASAP! the creativity in trying to blame everything that ever happened on President Trump is astounding. i wonder if the media ever read the story about the boy who cried wolf one to many times. I wish I had an imaginary person to blame all the worlds problems in

'Their unabashed goal is a global Christian theocracy—no morality, or democracy, required.' What us wrong with you people! God could care less for who us the president of the USA. I have seen brain dead people, but he is their leader! Almeda blamed Obama for Custer's defeat at The Little Bighorn, the iceberg collision that sank the TITANIC, and the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Trump's advisors are all morons, especially the so-called 'religious' ones.

obvious where he has his head 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Trump does like crazy people Definitely wasn't Gods punishment for ruining the land, sea, and air by drilling and using oil tho. Nope. No way it was that. ThanksObama If only you'd have bent over for Israel like Trump, lives would've been saved, careers would've been kept, and wildlife would've been spared.

And he knows this for fact, and here's how he knows.... 'Jeezus...if the Deepwater Horizon disaster was NOT your divine punishment against America for the way Obama treated Israel...turn this water into WINE!' :So Much Conspiracy ,This Accusing/Language & Is Published & Reported, I think Incorrectly & wrong, Mis Leading By Hypothesis Theories Guessing Assuming Or Too Just Flay Out Say No realFactsAll & That'sDone,No Real Consequences But Your Own Self And Cheers From That guess?soUSA*

No wonder religion is on decline. unhinged morons sharing their lack of thoughts and reason. No, I’m not tired until I see the Temple, then I might. I can see the Flying Spaghetti Monster SpagFlying in the flames! Ramen! Evangelists, will be the death of the GOP. And you think this nonsense is worth printing?

If God is punishing for what Obama did... Brace yourself guys God wont be that merciful when it comes to 'What Trump did' These people are nuts. They will ascribe all their own wrongdoing to their perceived enemies, no matter how crazy the scenario. And the rest of their flock will follow them down the rabbit hole of insanity.

No wonder atheism is so strong in America and growing. With such dishonest Christian leaders, who would want that religion? What the hell kind of God would punish fish, birds, and hard labourers over a political squabble?
