The Biden administration is seizing increasing amounts of power for itself through a slew of executive orders, without the consent of the people, or Congress…

On March 15, 1984, the U.S. Senate voted down children praying in public schools. President Ronald Reagan said: “I am deeply disappointed that, although a majority of the Senate voted for it, the school prayer amendment fell short.”
On September 25, 1982, Reagan said: “Unfortunately, in the last two decades we’ve experienced an onslaught of such twisted logic that if Alice were visiting America, she might think she’d never left Wonderland. We’re told that it somehow violates the rights of others to permit students in a school who desire to pray to do so. Clearly, this infringes on the freedom of those who choose to pray, the freedom taken for granted since the time of our Founding Fathers …”
Lawmakers listened to ominous references to the South’s Jim Crow era and Maoist China as the Senate held its first hearing on Democrats’ legislation to nationalize elections while eliminating voter ID and most other state election safeguards…
Only in the crazy world we live in could this nut-job be up for such a position of responsibility in government.
Sen. Rand Paul’s Exchange With Biden Nominee Over Transgender Treatment for Kids
“Do you support the government intervening to override the parent’s consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia?” Paul asks.
(The Senator repeatedly asked a simple question the nominee repeatedly refused to answer. What was she hiding? )
This week on The Sword and The Trowel, Tom Ascol and Jared Longshore are joined by Just Thinking podcast hosts, Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker for a special show filmed live at the 2021 National Founders Conference. They cover God and State, the Church’s responsibility, the biblical role of Governmental authorities, defying tyrants, and our call to live faithfully as followers of Christ in this corrupt nation.
Yesterday, January 16, 2021, was Religious Freedom Day here in America. Something almost completely ignored by the media.

Jefferson Opposed Censorship of Opinions: Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom & How Courts have taken Freedom away!
“On … we commemorate the … anniversary of the passing of a State law that has shaped and secured our cherished legacy of religious liberty.” – proclaimed President Donald J. Trump, January 16, 2018.
Reopening our economy is vital to recovering from the effects of Covid-19. We’ve got to trust Americans to make decisions for their lives so that their businesses and communities can thrive.
So, it’s really frustrating to see government overreaches of power to shut down society. To me, the only thing worse than draconian lockdowns (like a mayor in Illinois encouraging the cops to find his own wife!) is hypocritical politicians doing the very things that they’ve made illegal for their constituents.
That’s why I wanted to make sure that you saw this brand new resource from Heritage. It tracks officials who violate their own coronavirus restrictions. Take a look here: https://www.heritage.org/data-visualizations/public-health/covid-hypocrisy-policymakers-breaking-their-own-rules/
We’re already up to 50 rule-breakers and counting. It would be laughable if it wasn’t true.
How woke is your workplace? This week, Christopher Rufo, a Heritage Foundation visiting fellow, explains what critical race theory is and how it’s dividing America.
Noxious Marxist theories that have festered in academia for decades finally burst out of ivy-covered walls in 2020, invading all aspects of American life. It wasn’t just the cities succumbing to nightly riots—everything from sporting events, to classrooms, to the workplace was hammered with the message that America was never the land of the free.
I have posted quite a lot on this subject, as my followers know when COVID first hit and the Federal Government asked for a 15 day stay home from gatherings (including church) I supported their efforts as both constitutional and since nothing was known of the virus practical and wise.
Since then of course time and again the federal and state government has let us down on a pretty consistent manner. Whether it is the mask controversy or unconstitutional restrictions on churches but not businesses . Here are two article on some of the latest.
The COVID Bait and Snitch
In the middle of a global pandemic, you’d think health officials would have better things to do than mask checks at empty churches. Well, think again, says Rev. Dr. Dennis Jackman. It didn’t matter that he was working in his office alone. The last time he answered the door of the church without his face covered, it almost cost him $5,000. Do it again, the government told him, and they’d shut down his church — indefinitely…
Christian NIH director urges churches to close amid the COVID-19 crisis: Do ‘altruistic’ thing and say ‘I’m going to protect people from me’
National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins — an outspoken Church ClosingChristian — is asking churches across America to do the “altruistic, loving thing” and close — or stay closed — amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to NPR…
San Jose Will Fined a Way to Worship
If someone asked you where Christians could be fined $300,000 for worshipping Jesus, most of you would probably say communist China. Try San Jose, California. That’s where liberal local officials have decided to make an example of any congregation willing to stand up to the governor’s ridiculous orders. They’re willing to bankrupt churches and even send Calvary Chapel Senior Pastor Mike McClure to jail for daring to safely gather God’s people.
“I don’t want to break the law,” he said to the congregation on Sunday, “but I’m called to preach gospel.” McClure also made it clear that by showing up, anyone could be in trouble with the law. “…[T]hey could arrest you, give you a fine, or a citation,” he warned. That didn’t seem to deter the 600 or so people in attendance. They cheered McClure’s bold stand, which attorneys defended this morning in a Santa Clara County court…
