Conspicuous Capitol Chaos!

Like most Americans, I was concerned by the violence that I watched at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. But I had a difficult time trying to understand what was happening. Trump supporters are almost always extremely peaceful, but many of those that were storming the Capitol were being very violent. That didn’t make sense to me.   How in the world did protesters get into the U.S. Capitol in the first place ?//??

It turns out that the police actually opened up the barricades that were surrounding the U.S. Capitol and purposely allowed protesters to storm the building.  You can see this on video right here http://themostimportantnews.com/another-video-of-the…/ Has anyone ever seen anything like this? And once they were inside the building, they were directed toward particular areas.  For example, you can watch one “guard” actually lead protesters up several flights of stairs right here.. https://mobile.twitter.com/sageandhoney_/status/1346977270183899136 Either the U.S. Congress has the worst security personnel that any of us have ever seen, or this was allowed to happen on purpose.

And there are multiple reports that Antifa activists were brought in by bus.  In fact, one patriot actually recorded video of the Antifa buses that were brought into the heart of Washington D.C. with an escort… So who arranged for those Antifa buses to have that sort of an escort?

It is as if someone was extremely determined to get those Antifa activists to their location so that they could do their disruptive work. Once they got inside the Capitol, the Antifa activists could have done a much better job of disguising themselves.  In fact, one has already been positively identified as a member of Philly Antifa.

If he wanted to pass as a “Trump supporter”, he probably should have covered up the hammer and sickle that are tattooed on the back of his hand…


Perhaps the most famous “protester” from the chaos on Wednesday is “the guy with the Viking horns”.

It turns out that he was photographed at a BLM rally in Arizona wearing the exact same outfit back in June…And he was also photographed at a “climate activism” event in 2019

Apparently his name is Jake Angeli and he is a “shamanic practitioner.”  But on Wednesday he was posing as a hardcore Trump supporter. So why hasn’t the mainstream media put any of these pieces together? It shouldn’t take too much detective work to identify a lot of these people. Why won’t the MSM do it?

And how is it that the police let the vast majority of the “protesters” go without arresting them once it was all over? The mainstream media is insisting that “they will be arrested later.” Doesn’t all this seem odd??

Just as the debate over the evidence of election fraud and irregularities was about to begin in the halls of Congress, these riots conveniently broke out. Members of Congress were quickly evacuated, and the millions of Americans that were watching never got to see an honest debate about the 2020 election. When proceedings finally resumed, the entire atmosphere had completely changed, and all of a sudden hardly anyone was interested in debating whether the election results were legitimate or not.

So who actually benefitted from the riots? It is important to note that these riots have dealt severe damage to the political reputation of President Trump to the delight of his adversaries and MSM.

So with one stone, activists have neutralized the debate over the legitimacy of the election and they have impugned the Trump movement as well. (Smearing Trump’s followers has long been an advocacy of Chuck Schumer. Schumer; World, anti-Christian article,  https://world.wng.org/2005/04/new mccarthyism  It appears that someone really was playing “pin the tail on the Elephant,” and it wasn’t Trump and his supporters.

And this is just the beginning.  The radical left will never be satisfied until they accomplish all of their goals. Electing Joe Biden was just a way to get rid of Trump.  The radical left actually doesn’t like Biden either, and they will fight him bitterly if Biden does not go along with their full agenda. In the end, what they want is a full-blown transformation – better called “revolution” – in this country.  And as we witnessed on Wednesday, they will go to extreme lengths.

Is There No Conscience In Thee?

Conscience is a strange thing. It’s severely perplexing to try and understand the value system of the Liberal/ Democratic/Socialist Party. They rant and rave in sanctimonious fashion over babies and children alleged as being separated from their parents illegally and lawlessly entering at the border. Incessant claims that the President has “ripped babies nursing from their mother’s breasts” go on routinely in the duplicitous effort to demonize the President.

Yet they rant and rave over looming Supreme Court selections to protect their so-called right to kill their babies before they are born. Vicious campaigns, oftentimes with threatened violence, to derail the recent appointments of Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett to the Supreme Court typified the deranged mentality of these abortion crusaders,

Then too, in an uncommon display of their hypocrisy, they rise to applaud and give a standing ovation over their passage of laws permitting the termination of babies about to be born just a moment’s stroke before delivery. Their genuflection at the altar of Planned Parenthood only confirms their specious and terrifying regard for the sanctity and value of human life. As if that wasn’t enough, in their perversity, they seek laws in Virginia allowing for the practice of infanticide and manslaughter of newborns even after their survival of an abortion attempt..

Sure wish they’d develop a conscience!

What Then Shall Be Our Legacy?

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, after sending the article below on the Democrat tactic and some Christian spokesmen, moralizing in such a way as to discourage Christians from going to the polls to vote because of their dissatisfaction with either candidate, I received this message from a friend on the renowned theologian, Dr. Albert Mohler whom I mentioned in the article as one who previously had sided against Trump on character issues in the 2016 election.

Dr. Mohler, just two days ago, has expressed his contrition for doing so in 2016 with a comprehensive, monumental analysis, in flowing, heartening language as to why he, as a Christian theologian, shall be voting for Donald Trump in this current election. It is unmistakable in its clarity and precision enough to reassure any indecisive Christian of the necessity to vote for the President on any terms. Check for yourself…on the vote and Christian consciencehttps://albertmohler.com/2020/10/27/briefing-10-27-20

Further, as to Pastor John Piper, whom I also mentioned as causing a stir (on Facebook) with his vacillating comments on possibly not voting at all in this election, there is this rebuttal from long time Trump supporter, Dr. Wayne Grudem, seminary professor and theologian and apparently good friend of Pastor Piper.…See Grudem’s article here: https://www.christianpost.com/voices/a-response-to-my-friend-john-piper-about-voting-for-trump.html

and then there is this interview that took place a half-hour after I posted my  e-mail last night from Dick Morris at Newsmax.. https://www.newsmax.com/politics/voters-election-dickmorris-trump/2020/10/28/id/994216/

A principle in the art of war is to disrupt the unity and divide one’s adversaries into separate and weaker factions. Thus, we see that stratagem being employed by components of our culture hostile and adversarial to our sacred values, heritage, and traditions in the current campaign for the office of the President of the United States.

Subtle and devious attacks have been exercised on one of the key elements of the President’s support – the Biblically based, Christian, evangelical community as an attempt to erode his support at the voting booths – perhaps with some success. The attacks are subtle in that evangelicals are not encouraged to vote for the hostile, preferred candidate but to discourage them from voting at all. In this way, evangelicals can mollify their consciences by staying home on election day as they may not be that eager to vote for either of the two candidates, preferring instead to be spiteful for having to vote for what they consider the lesser of two unworthy choices.

How then shall we live, when reputable, national church leaders flirt with decisions to sit out this 2020 election by not exercising their freedom to choose our national leaders and, worse, embarrass their members and followers into doing the same?

First and early on was Christianity Today, then other church leaders like Max Lucado and Albert Mohler, now Pastor John Piper, Joel Belz of World Magazine, and the resurgence of leftist, social commentator Ron Sider and perennial, leftist theologian Jim Wallis (who lied then admitted to being a recipient of George Soros’ funding) take a stand to demoralize Christians from going to the polls.

What motive can these men of high reputation have except to lead the church cowardly and blindly to its loss of freedom of speech, assembly, and constitutional right to free worship. Their protestations of conscience smack of elitist, presumptive, pharisaical, moral authority which does not take into account the lifestyle from which the President derives, where he is at presently, and where with vision, hope, and courage he expects to lead. Their suggestions that they are unable to discern a difference between the candidates and their policies to warrant an endorsement shall make them complicit in the horrific promises that the candidate team of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and their liberal-socialist Democrats seek to implement should they win the election. These once daunting, evangelical icons will have dissuaded their flocks from upholding the nobility of what the President has accomplished thus far and what he proposes for the future (despite his character flaws that his detractors so sanctimoniously point out).   

With such a potential, disastrous result looming in this election, when such a clear, binary choice exists between the noble policies and accomplishments of President Trump and the bizarre morality of Joe Biden, the Democrat platform, and the insensate pronouncements of Pope Francis that threaten the future conscientious expressions of faith of Bible loving Christians, might we not expect to have a future restructuring and reformation of a socially and culturally passive church, if the President is not re-elected?

One Christian leader stands without hesitation in support of the President. Franklin Graham has been unwavering in his belief and perception that what the future of this nation requires already has been demonstrated heroically in the performance of President Trump.

One other, who so clearly repents of his failure to discern the nobility of President Trump and his unselfish motives and purposes in serving the nation, is Michael Farris, CEO of Alliance Defending Freedom which is a Christian-based advocacy protector of religious freedom and home schooling. He is an evangelical Christian who is also a litigator before US Supreme Court. He recently wrote the following on FaceBook:   “Why I am Voting for Donald Trump in 2020 After Publicly Refusing to do so in 2016” with a lengthy defense of his intended vote and an apologetics affirmation of President Trump. 

With solemn hope and gratitude, it is pointed out that a letter signed by nearly 200 evangelical leaders pushed back against an op-ed in Christianity Today that called for Donald Trump to be removed from office and encouraged Christians to dismiss their support for the President. Among the signatories of that repudiating letter was Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council; Ralph Reed, the president of the Faith and Freedom Coalition; and Paula White Cain, Trump’s longtime spiritual adviser who recently joined the White House staff. And from days past, we ought not forget the courage and heroism of Karol Wojtyla, the Polish model Pope John Paul ll, who spearheaded the eventual collapse of the tyrannical Soviet Union.  

So what say you, Christians?  Shall  your spiritual integrity and Christian witness be impugned by these religious sophists who show little regard for their civic and moral obligations by failing to preserve and uphold the love of neighbor, community, and nation by surrendering to the pretentions of our liberal and secular culture? They not only target the President but by implication also target those who support him as Nero did the followers of Jesus. Christians need to strengthen the things that remain. A vote in a pluralistic society such as ours is our God-given instrument to preserve security, societal stability, harmony, and individual freedom.

By whatever standard, the noble heart and true character of the President has been strikingly revealed in his policies, promises, and performance. God bless the President of the United States.

The Real Trump Record

President Trump inherited a stagnant economy, with millions of Americans on welfare and food stamps, with skyrocketing health insurance costs. Weak border security and illegal immigration put the nation at risk with camouflaged criminal and terrorist elements entering and being provided liberal sanctuary cities. Unprecedented attacks were being waged on police and law enforcement. Attacks on religious liberty and traditional values went unchecked as the country became divided by rampant political correctness along ethnic, racial and gender lines.

The president supports the rule of law, law enforcement, national security, reversal of declines in military preparedness with a strong resurgent military. NATO partners increasing their financial share for common defense. Dialogue began with North Korea’s Kim. Avoidance of war over Crimea and Ukraine. His wars on terrorism and defeat of ISIS. Curtailed Obama’s disastrous mid-east policies, decertified the corrupt Iran deal. Achieved unparalleled return of foreign held American hostages.

Supports legal immigration, border surveillance, building a wall. Stopped taxpayer funding of sanctuary cities harboring illegal aliens.

Completed middle-class tax-cuts and increased jobs at every level for every people group including Blacks, Hispanics, and Women, with unemployment at a 50-year low, a booming unprecedented economy with millions elevated off food stamps and the stock market reviving to unprecedented heights with renewed confidence..

Exposed scandals at IRS, promoted cutting taxes, simplified filling out tax returns, started deregulation to release businesses, previously outsourced companies returning back to the mainland, manufacturing recovering, improved and more fair trade agreements, the trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, energy independence – U.S. now #1 producer of oil in the world with lessened dependence on Middle East oil..

Unequivocal, positive support for Israel, moved U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. 

Two SCOTUS constitutional, originalist appointments, with a third on the way. Filled 200 overdue federal judgeship vacancies. Maintains strong defense of religious freedom, free speech, right-to-life, traditional values, and the 2nd amendment.

Aggressive reversal of human trafficking and the opioid crisis.

Initiated massive overhaul and increased accountability of the Veteran’s Administration, enacting the Veteran’s Choice Act to shorten wait list times for veterans to undergo medical treatments.

All according to his promises.

Is The Lord Trying To Get Our Attention?

Has anyone asked the question whether what we are experiencing through COVID-19 is an exercise of God’s wrath upon our sinful and ever increasing decadent societies? My prayer above all else, in our current health crisis, is that we are not experiencing a re-visitation of Numbers 16: 46 b:                                                                                                                    “Wrath has come out from the Lord; the plague has started.”

Could it be that our ungodly choices in our civic and national policies and the increasing secularization of our cultures with our inclinations toward abortion, infanticide, drug and human trafficking, national laws and protections affirming homosexual lifestyles, homosexual marriage and transgenderism while overruling religious freedoms, brazen corruption in high places by national leaders and those passing laws? Might the Lord be displeased with our increasing rage, violence, sexual assaults, and spousal abuse, rampant sensuality, promiscuity and child pornography while our arts and entertainment industries profit on increasingly erotic, pornographic portrayals and visuals, that are leading to a reckoning of our debaucheries on a planetary scale?

With growing frequency, we are witnessing renunciation of His existence with impunity by academics, millennials, university students, renowned scientists, and network hosts stimulating mass audiences with disdain for all things religious or spiritual. Isn’t it true that rebellion and selfishness fester in every segment of society with claims of victimhood and deprivations while gratitude, contentment, service, national loyalty, and sacrifice grow increasingly rare? Who could blame the Lord, if what we are experiencing on a global scale is an expression of His wrath and has nothing to do with the Chinese or President Trump but with our own shared humanity’s wantonness and degeneracy?

If that be true, then one wonders too, if the so-called Lord’s people, who are called by His name, are somewhat complicit in our national and global woes by refraining from our defined duty to lead the nations in repentance according to the given format of                 2 Chronicles 7: 14.                                                                                                                                  If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE: Zelenko saving lives at $20 a pop


By Bryan Fischer
–  hosts “Focal Point with Bryan Fischer” every weekday on AFR Talk (American Family        Radio) from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. (Central).

Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose “expert” advice to President Trump has resulted in the complete shutdown of the greatest economic engine in world history, has known since 2005 that chloroquine is an effective inhibitor of coronaviruses.

How did he know this? Because of research done by the National Institutes of Health, of which he is the director. In connection with the SARS outbreak – caused by a coronavirus dubbed SARS- CoV – the NIH researched chloroquine and concluded that it was effective at stopping the SARS coronavirus in its tracks. The COVID-19 bug is likewise a coronavirus, labeled SARS-CoV-2. While not exactly the same virus as SARS-CoV-1, it is genetically related to it, and shares 79% of its genome, as the name SARS-CoV-2 implies. They both use the same host cell receptor, which is what viruses use to gain entry to the cell and infect the victim.

The Virology Journal – the official publication of Dr. Fauci’s National Institutes of Health – published what is now a blockbuster article on August 22, 2005, under the heading – get ready for this – “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.” (Emphasis mine throughout.) Write the researchers, “We report…that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage.”

This means, of course, that Dr. Fauci has known for 15 years that chloroquine and it’s even milder derivative hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) will not only treat a current case of coronavirus (“therapeutic”) but prevent future cases (“prophylactic”). So HCQ functions as both a cure and a vaccine. In other words, it’s a wonder drug for coronavirus. Said Dr. Fauci’s NIH in 2005, “concentrations of 10 µM completely abolished SARS-CoV infection.” Fauci’s researchers add, “chloroquine can effectively reduce the establishment of infection and spread of SARS-CoV.”

Dr. Didier Raoult, the Anthony Fauci of France, had such spectacular success using HCQ to treat victims of SARS-CoV-2 that he said way back on February 25 that “it’s game over” for coronavirus.

He and a team of researchers reported that the use of HCQ administered with both azithromycin and zinc cured 79 of 80 patients with only “rare and minor” adverse events. “In conclusion,” these researchers write, “we confirm the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine associated with azithromycin in the treatment of COVID-19 and its potential effectiveness in the early impairment of contagiousness.”

The highly-publicized VA study that purported to show HCQ was ineffective showed nothing of the sort. HCQ wasn’t administered until the patients were virtually on their deathbeds when research indicates it should be prescribed as soon as symptoms are apparent. Plus, HCQ was administered without azithromycin and zinc, which form the cocktail that makes it supremely effective. At-risk individuals need to receive the HCQ cocktail at the first sign of symptoms.

But Governor Andrew Cuomo banned the use of HCQ in the entire state of New York on March 6, the Democrat governors of Nevada and Michigan soon followed suit, and by March 28 the whole country was under incarceration-in-place status.

Nothing happened with regard to the use of HCQ in the U.S. until March 20, when President Trump put his foot down and insisted that the FDA consider authorizing HCQ for off-label use to treat SARS-CoV-2.

On March 23, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko reported that he had treated around 500 coronavirus patients with HCQ and had seen an astonishing 100% success rate. That’s not the “anecdotal” evidence Dr. Fauci sneers at, but actual results with real patients in clinical settings.

“Since last Thursday, my team has treated approximately 350 patients in Kiryas Joel (Kiryas Joel is a village within the Town of Palm Tree in Orange County, New York, United States. The majority of its residents are Yiddish-speaking Hasidic Jews) and another 150 patients in other areas of New York with the above regimen. Of this group and the information provided to me by affiliated medical teams, we have had ZERO deaths, ZERO hospitalizations, and ZERO intubations. In addition, I have not heard of any negative side effects other than approximately 10% of patients with temporary nausea and diarrhea.”

Said Dr. Zelenko:
“If you scale this nationally, the economy will rebound much quicker. The country will open again. And let me tell you a very important point. This treatment costs about $20. That’s very important because you can scale that nationally. If every treatment costs $20,000, that’s not so good.

All I’m doing is repurposing old, available drugs which we know their safety profiles, and using them in a unique combination in an outpatient setting.”

The questions are disturbing to a spectacular degree. If Dr. Fauci has known since 2005 of the effectiveness of HCQ, why hasn’t it been administered immediately after people show symptoms, as Dr. Zelenko has done? Maybe then nobody would have died and nobody would have been incarcerated in place except the sick, which is who a quarantine is for in the first place. To paraphrase Jesus, it’s not the symptom-free who need HCQ but the sick. And they need it at the first sign of symptoms.

While the regressive health care establishment wants the HCQ cocktail to only be administered late in the course of the infection, from a medical standpoint, this is stupid. Said one doctor, “As a physician, this baffles me. I can’t think of a single infectious condition — bacterial, fungal, or viral — where the best medical treatment is to delay the use of an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, or anti-viral until the infection is far advanced.”

So why has Dr. Fauci minimized and dismissed HCQ at every turn instead of pushing this thing from jump street? He didn’t even launch clinical trials of HCQ until April 9, by which time 33,000 people had died.

This may be why: “Chloroquine, a relatively safe, effective and cheap drug used for treating many human diseases…is effective in inhibiting the infection and spread of SARS CoV.” That’s the problem. It is safe, inexpensive, and it works – in other words, there’s nothing sexy or avant-garde about HCQ. It’s been around since 1934.

Given human nature, it’s possible, even likely, that those who are chasing the unicorn of a coronavirus vaccine are doing so for reasons other than human health. I can’t see into anybody’s heart, and can’t presume to know their motives, but on the other hand, human nature recognizes that there’s no glory in pushing HCQ, and nobody is going to get anything named for him in the history books. The polio vaccine was developed by Jonas Salk in 1954, and it is still known as the “Salk vaccine.” There will be no “Fauci vaccine” if HCQ is the answer to the problem.

So while Dr. Fauci is tut-tutting and pooh-poohing HCQ, Dr. Raoult and Dr. Zelenko are out there saving lives at $20 a pop. Maybe we should spend more time listening to them than the wizards-of-smart bureaucrats the Talking Snake Media fawns over.

Dr. Fauci is regarded by the Talking Snake Media as the Oracle at Delphi. The entire nation hangs on his every word. But if nobody is dying and nobody is locked down, his 15 minutes of fame fades to zero. Very few people are not going to be influenced by that prospect, especially when it’s easy to keep the attention of the public by continuing to feed the panic.

It should not be overlooked that there is no money in HCQ for Big Pharma since HCQ is a generic that can be manufactured so cheaply there is little profit margin in it. On the other hand, the payday for a vaccine will literally be off-the-charts. Who knows what kind of behind-the-scenes pressure is being put on Fauci and others in the health care establishment?

There is a monstrous reputational risk for those who will be found to have dismissively waved off a treatment that could have been used from the very beginning, even back on February 15 when Dr. Fauci said that the risk from Coronavirus was “minuscule.” How many lives could have been saved if the heads of our multi-billion dollar health care bureaucracy had been advocating for HCQ treatment from day one? We’ll never know. Instead, their advice has been dangerous and deadly in every sense of that word.

Someday – maybe even today – we will be able to identify the individuals who had the knowledge and expertise to make a global difference, but turned up their noses at the solution when it could have made all the difference in the world.

Why We Can Appreciate President Trump

Instead of demonstrating that only those with the highest personal ethics can lead, the Bible is full of examples of craven, ruthless, merciless sinners successfully leading their nations. Yet God chose to use them. 

Was David disqualified from leading Israel because he murdered Uriah in order to take Bathsheba as his wife? Certainly not. In the Psalms, he is called the apple of God’s eye.
Did Joseph undermine his public witness as a prophet of God by serving Pharaoh even as he held the Israelites in captivity? What about Daniel, who served the fantastically pagan Nebuchadnezzar? Or Esther, who married the murderous, libertine emperor Xerxes? Again, the answer is plainly no.

So why do Trump supporters come in for such scorn? Are Trump’s sins greater than any of these? Are they greater than those of many other presidents? Without resorting to Clinton references, shall we recall George H. W. Bush’s or Lyndon Johnson’s or FDR’s reported adultery? How about John F. Kennedy’s serial adulteries in the White House? Warren Harding’s love child? ….So says Chris Buskirk in his commentaryYes, Christians Can Support Trump Without Risk to Their Witness.”   May 8, 2019.

In our present day culture, we are witnessing the rise of the thuggery and brutishness of Nero-types who, since they have not been able to thwart the rise of President Trump and his on-going agenda, regard their sinister strategy now to be attempts to suppress his followers as Nero did the followers of Jesus. The present day COVID-19 crisis has given them every impulsion to attack and threaten church goers, confine them to their homes to prevent any kind of assembly, and overridden their Second amendment and free speech rights with total disdain for their faith-held positions on the right-to-life and rule of law.

Considering the widespread ferocity and mob-mentality opposition on so many fronts to the President’s vision (especially from a mendacious media), his unwavering leadership, persistence, tenacity, and courage in continuing to function with confident speed, unabashedly and determinedly as President and Commander-in–Chief, President Trump may not qualify for the Nobel Prize, but for the poise and steadfastness he exhibits in the face of his deranged detractors, he surely deserves consideration, as he fearlessly governs onward, to be designated as a modern day hero and profile in courage. More so, since the President, who admittedly was once of their company, has abandoned his former lifestyle to reform and transform his life to a more traditional and conventional family man, ethical businessman, citizen, patriot,  and  public servant when he could otherwise be living a life of incredible ease.

The President supports rule of law, law enforcement, national security, reversal of declines in military preparedness with a strong resurgent military, legal immigration, border surveillance, building a wall, low taxes, jobs at every level for every people group with unemployment at a 50-year low, a booming unprecedented economy with millions elevated off food stamps, outsourced companies coming back to the mainland, manufacturing recovering, unparalleled return of foreign held American hostages, improved and more fair trade agreements, NATO partners increasing their financial share for common defense, Obama’s disastrous mid-East policies curtailed, decertified the corrupt Iran deal, dialogue begun with North Korea’s Kim, avoidance of war over Crimea and Ukraine, unequivocal, positive support for Israel, moved US embassy to Jerusalem, three SCOTUS constitutional, originalists appointments, strong defense of religious freedom, free speech, right-to-life, and the 2nd amendment, his wars on Isis,  human trafficking and on the opioid crisis, cutting taxes, deregulation to release businesses, increased the Vet’s Admin accountability, the trade agreement with Canada and Mexico and on and on, all according to his promises.

All of this has been stymied, of course, since the rise of COVID -19. But nonetheless, we can rest secure in the way the President has handled the crisis with his assembled team of expert health and economic advisors despite such violent and unrelenting opposition from his political adversaries, detractors, and hostile media seeking to discredit him with false charges of incompetence and ineffectiveness. The President has successfully defined protocols to mobilize and alert 330,000,000 Americans to save lives by hindering the spread of the virus.

His vernacular speech and conduct often deserves true criticism, sure, but berating him and harping on his former life that is no longer evident is holding him hostage to his past which none of us could withstand under such scrutiny to our personal lives. The President gives every indication that he has reformed and dedicated his life and even his income to the service of the nation, thereby earning sizeable forgiveness for not being so spiritually minded that he’d be no earthly good in a pluralistic, disparate society such as ours. A divided nation, apparently, is his cross to bear. Yet, too, the President has displayed a genuine humility in his oft recognition of our need and dependence on a higher spiritual power.

God Bless the President of the United States.                                                                          Joe Rogowski                                                                                                                            “Life is a special occasion!”                                                                                                                          Hallmark Corporation                                                                       http://www.mindingthetimes.com

The Cesspool vs. Trump

Let’s not forget to mention that Cesspool of critics of the President and his family that collectively qualify as the quagmire of our nation’s cultural degeneracy – the arts and entertainment industry.

In earlier history, two trends developed in art world, one in the 1700’s during the so-called Enlightenment, wherein art became more independent from moral traditions and religious restraints, and in the 1800’S during the so-called Secession.

In 1897, an artist’s movement “The Vienna Secession” took place in Vienna Austria, as part of a larger Secession trend with conclaves in Munich and Berlin. Although begun that way, it changed from a solely architectural movement to include visual arts and then, virtually, art of all types. They evolved as an anti-academic and anti-traditional movement where the range of any art form was encouraged and legitimized. There were no longer restraints to any specific artistic or architectural style.

Artists began isolating themselves into art communities and collegially and collectively became indifferent to public values. Art became decidedly more secular and more “private” and “internal” to the artist – virtually ignoring public tastes, often seeking shock value. Many artists lost all sense of community as the source and substance of art simply became the mind of the artist, not life reality or intelligible experiences. They often ignored the needs of the audience, became anarchical to standards, and predictably advocatory in promoting their own agenda and worldview.

Hence, now years later, we have our own arts and entertainment anarchists in a triple whammy – promoting their worldview, advocating for their agenda while appealing often to all the basest appetites of their audience for their self-aggrandizement and profit. Traditional and religious limits or constraints are slandered by them as they push to extend boundaries in visuals, morals, and dialogue and desensitize standards of public tastes. And what worldview do they advocate? Naturally, it’s the Socialist, Democratic, Liberal perspective which makes them unblinkingly hostile to the President and his agenda. More so, since the President, who admittedly was once of their company, has abandoned his former lifestyle to reform and transform into a more traditional and conventional family man, ethical businessman, citizen, and patriot.

Schumer, Borkin’ Joe and the Supreme Court

Chuckie Schumer’s recent attack on Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch is an emerging reminder of the Democrats continuing, flagrant attempts to make the Supreme Court a branch of the Democrat Party.

Joe Biden has been somewhat the invisible man over the last ten years lurking in the background twixt the wretched Obama years and the current successes of the Trump administration. His recent emergence gushes up recollections of the dreadful malice he displayed during the U.S. Senate Judiciary hearings on the nomination of Robert Bork in 1987 and of Clarence Thomas in 1991 to the Supreme Court.

Millennials, preoccupied in hunting a satisfying career path, burdened by college debt and indecision on job choices, remain untutored on some past vital national history. The years of 1987-1991 seem eons away for millennials and recent grads, thus they’re lax in concern for those seismic events that presage their current, daily news intake.

Joe, the last living member of the Biden to Kennedy to Metzenbaum clique of that 1991 committee, found it in his heart to suggest that he may have mistreated Anita Hill, a last minute witness called up to censure Clarence Thomas with her disputed testimony. Borkin’ Joe found himself awash in the Mendacious Media outlets for not making a suitable apology to her. Thus, Anita Hill has withheld her stately acceptance of Joe’s apology as unacceptable, probably because he did confess to colleagues, on the side, that she lied during her testimony victimizing Thomas.

The Mendacious Media is not inclined to to suggest that it is Clarence Thomas who is due the apology from Borkin’ Joe, because of the cunning attempts to subvert his nomination by the partisan, liberal Biden-Kennedy-Metzenbaum slanders, in what Thomas heroically and valiantly branded as a “high tech lynching!”

Biden, in 1987, had displayed ample dark side inclinations with his scurrilous methods exemplified by releasing the Biden Report that undergirded the merciless Kennedy/ Metzenbaum personal attacks on Robert Bork’s nomination to the Supreme Court by Ronald Reagan. Biden, always since, has sought to bork ‘em all.

So, is Chuckie Schumer now laying the groundwork for the real Borkin’ Joe Biden to take new steps forward in attempting to intimidate the Supreme Court with his attacks on Gorsuch and Kavanaugh? Chuckie and Joe sure would make President Trump look like a choir boy.

The Rise of Nero’s Heroes

The history of ancient Rome is laden with legendary history and folklore. No figure cuts as significant a swat as the pompous, despot Emperor Nero. It seems certain that during his reign he was determined to erase Christianity from the face of the earth.

Nero uniquely set a pattern for dealing with growing opposition to his murderous rule. With the realization of Jesus’ resurrection and that the Jesus movement was gaining strength, Nero’s next cunning strategy was viciously to attack the followers of Jesus.

In our present day culture, we are witnessing the rise of the thuggery and brutishness of Nero-types who, since they have not been able to thwart the rise of President Trump and his on-going agenda, their sinister strategy now is to attempt to suppress his followers.

As of recently, the Brietbart news organization has logged 500 instances of various attacks on members of the Trump administration, his family, his organization and, of course, his followers. Everything from hateful attacks on his youthful son, daughter, and wife, to brutes physically attacking blacks, elderly, and teen-agers half their size and age for wearing MAGA gear, to Trump associates shopping for groceries, books, gas, or dining in restaurants, to the unspeakable online harassment of the mother of a cancer survivor for thanking Eric Trump for his donation of $16 million to the St. Jude Hospital.

Breitbart recent headlines also suggest that Senator Klobuchar of Minnesota insinuates that Trump supporters, by association, fail decency and patriotism checks. These innuendoes mimic Mrs. Clinton’s “deplorables,” and Joe Biden’s “dregs” slurs of President Trump’s followers. Franklin Graham was suspended on charges of “hate speech” by Facebook for a two-year-old post in support of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 that mandated that people use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex.    LINK;     https://conservativepost.com/franklin-graham-suspended-by-facebook-blocked-for-his-biblical-hate-speech/

Trump supporters have been kicked, punched, and spat upon. This extreme, orgiastic, unrestrained behavior favoring the Democrat/ Liberal/ Socialist segment of American politics is documented enough to show that their main line leaders such as Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Tim Kaine, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Andrew Cuomo, and countless others might arguably take credit for this behavior with their incendiary calls to “take it to the streets,” with “in their face” “resistance” against the present administration, its citizen voters and followers, police enforcement, ranking office holders and their families, border patrol agents, and even against religious and conservative thought and leaders. They virtually ignore the disruptive tactics of such terror groups like the masked and hooded Antifa and MS-13, and the often militant Black Lives Matter.

It is not unrealistic to suggest that this relentless agitation leads to an alarming increase in deranged behavior and harassment of American citizens whose views and opinions these liberal forces cannot abide. Is it unrealistic to consider that this stream of unending agitation through the megaphone of the biased media arouses individuals and incites them to act out their own form of “in your face” and “take it to the streets” “resistance” to vent their frustrations, hatred, and manic impulses on any of society’s targets?

Recently, this persistent public agitation nearly resulted in a horrific slaughter as a heartless driver slammed his vehicle into a Trump voter registration tent in the parking lot of a shopping center narrowly missing six volunteer workers. The suspect allegedly stopped his vehicle to get out to video-record his damage and thrust his middle finger in the air in defiance at the stunned volunteers before driving off, according to FOX 30 of Jacksonville. Mainstream Media coverage has been lukewarm, at best, if at all.                                    LINK;     https://www.foxnews.com/us/driver-in-florida-plows-into-gop-voter-registration-tent-nearly-hitting-6-volunteers-reports?fbclid=IwAR04Cho_aMMsd0NwH9K-HVUTkNzMhF-uD2PhEk4wfxTPIfboNxpIZTKsiTs

These current reactionary agitators that include not only the President’s political opposition but academia, the arts and entertainment industry, the mendacious media and prodigal press who portray themselves as some kind of ennobled, patriotic “resistance,” are implicitly, by definition, fomenting rebellion in its raw and ugly form. They refuse to acknowledge that the President won his office by all legal and necessary lawful means. They refuse to acknowledge that he is leading the country in its wellbeing successfully in every category and index, mostly claiming the opposite. They demonize his efforts to protect and enforce the security of our nation.

In their selfishness and rage, their behavior can be characterized as rejection of all authority – the rule of law, law enforcement, any moral, religious, or expert opinion, logic itself, voter and legal judicial outcomes, universal and traditional heritage, and even a renunciation of true justice. Their actions can only be viewed as an anarchist, hostile indifference to the looming, destructive impact on our societal harmony, successful social order, and national stability while blaming others for these deranged assaults on our citizens and communities. Their lust for power flows without restraint. Resistance isn’t their strategy, rebellion is. Such is their pattern of contribution to the anguish and societal decline of our nation with their reincarnation of Nero’s tactics.
