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.
Liberals are nothing if not reliable. It’s been 13 years since Barack Obama’s chief of staff sat down with ABC and declared, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” Rahm Emanuel’s party has lived and died by those words through two administrations, taking advantage of every situation to push an agenda that no one would even consider under normal circumstances.
House Votes to Impeach President Trump, 197 Republicans Vote No
Democrats and 10 Republicans in the House today voted to impeach President Trump based on false allegations that he incited the riot where violent protestors vandalized the United States Capitol and killed a police officer.
This is an article I came across from 2018, but a newer (late 2019) poll conducted by YouGov/Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, found that at least 70 percent of Americans between the ages of 23 and 38 were somewhat likely to cast a ballot for a socialist. Eventually, they will be the leadership of this country and that could spell the end to the U.S. as our Founding Fathers envisioned it.
What Americans Must Know About Socialism
1. Socialism is no longer a parlor game for academics but a political alternative taken seriously by millennials.
2. “They don’t recognize that much of what they enjoy in life is a result of capitalism and would disappear if socialism were to be implemented.”
3. This is the reality of socialism — a pseudo-religion grounded in pseudo-science and enforced by political tyranny.

Thought; while no one should ever condone violent protests; the hypocrisy of the left is overwhelming:

First, I must as a self proclaimed Christian look at any and all issues from a biblical perceptive. To do otherwise is to say I do not put God first. So what does the Bible say about the Death penalty:
Genesis 9:6 (KJV)Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. It is here the Biblical principle of the Death Penalty is established and never revoked in the biblical text. Note God establishes this not as a DETERENT but as PUNISHMENT.
Exodus 21:23-25(AMP)But if there is any further injury, then you shall require [as a penalty] life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.Punishment must fit the crime.
Num. 35:30 ‘If anyone kills a person [intentionally], the murderer shall be put to death on the testimony of [two or more] witnesses; but no one shall be put to death on the testimony of [only] one witness. It must be noted that in every case it was a person guilty of what we today call Capital Murderand intent must be proven beyond ALL DOUBTS.
Numbers 35:22-24‘But if he pushed the victim suddenly, not in enmity, or threw anything at him without malicious intent, 23 or without seeing him hit him [accidentally] with a stone object that could kill him, and he died, and [the offender] was not his enemy nor intending to harm him, 24 then the congregation shall judge between the offender and the blood avenger according to these ordinances. The death penalty only applies to those cases clearly premeditated, planned and thought out before hand.
Numbers 35This whole chapter is is about what we call Due Process. Beginning in V.6 God established safe cities for criminals to go to so those pursuing them could not kill them and they could get a fair trial.
Ezekiel 33:10-20The death Penalty should be a LAST RESORT not some way to prop up careers. God who established it says in v.11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? There are two MAJOR implications, first, no pleasure, if God has no pleasure in the death penalty neither should any of us. Second, the wicked turn, God says if the accused (or those found guilty) repent they are to be spared!
Since 1973 there have been 173 persons exoneratedoff Death Row. Tghat averages to a staggering 1 in 9 inmates on death row. For any other class of statistics folks would be screaming for actions. Another fact, this is often played up as a race issue yet 56% White 34% Black and 8% Hispanic have been executed.
The bottom line for me is the death penalty is biblical and legal. However it has become SO GROSSLY misapplied (Avg. above 11% innocent) that I for one can not support further executions until all biblical criteria is confirmed in each case.
With some 5,593 pages of complex legislative text and nearly 2,000 pages of explanatory material do you really think anyone understands what was HIDDEN in this? Just asking!!!!
9 Things You Need to Know About the $1.4 Trillion Fiscal Year 2021 Omnibus and $900 Billion COVID-19 Package

Good morning from Washington, where senators take a critical look at voting irregularities in the 2020 election. Fred Lucas reports. Vice President Mike Pence looks back at the Trump administration’s pro-life victories during the past four years. Rachel del Guidice has the details.

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.
