We hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it!”
This last COVID relief bill is flagrantly off topic and a huge disappointment to us! I am not in Congress, but if anyone in Congress wants to listen, here’s how I would write the “COVID Relief” bill:
1.) We need relief from oppression! Let’s start there. The governmental chains around our hands have caused great damage to businesses and individuals. We need fewer laws, not more laws. It is inappropriate for a government to destroy a small business and then throw some money at it thinking it can make it all better.
2.) Instead of sending out checks, we should have an “Income Tax Holiday”, so the citizens would get the same amount of relief, but without all the hassles and inaccuracies of printing and mailing checks. Nothing would get lost and dead people would not receive anything. Only those who are working would get the bonus. It would put money into their bank accounts in the form of greater take home pay and help to “starve the beast”. If the government has plenty of money to pass out, it certainly has too much money!
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving !
Our Nation is in the middle of a custody battle. Both mom and dad are fighting over who gets the children. It’s not over until the judges rule. While we would all like to see this over, we can’t call it just yet. Regardless of Joe Biden acting like he won, those closest to the epicenter know the election fraud is beyond anyone’s imagination. Here are some examples from Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.
This fight is forcing people to study the Constitution. As we study it more in depth, we are discovering that there are rules in place for how to handle this situation. It appears that if the rules are followed, our current President, Donald Trump, will be fairly elected to a second term.
But the struggle is not about Donald Trump. The fight is for fair and honest elections. If we fail at this, we will fail as a fair and honest country.
The hardest part is that most people feel like they want to do something, but we don’t know what to do. Regardless of what’s on the sign, when we see a beggar, we see a story……and a story that needs to be told. There’s not enough time at a busy intersection to ask questions, so people can either pull over and talk, or they can continue to flow with the traffic. There’s nothing like a beggar in the most obvious locations to force us to engage with the issue.
America is the most wealthy and generous Country in history. We are so wealthy, we get asked for money all the time. Most of us who shop are routinely asked if we want to donate so some cause. Yet, even with all our benevolent efforts, it seems like the problem is getting bigger everyday.
As they used to say in the House of Representatives, “Keep your powder dry!” There is officially no winner of the Presidential election just yet. The judicial system is dealing with this moment of national confusion. We must remember that the media has no authority to declare a winner. Anyone in America can deliver an acceptance speech!
Let’s wait and see what happens next. We could be into December before we have a final count and a true winner can be OFFICIALLY DECLARED.
The United States Constitution orders every state to hold an election for the President every four years. However, it gives states the freedom in the details of how the election is conducted. We’d like to presume the officials charged with the duty of conducting these elections are motivated by fairness and honesty. Sadly, that is not true.
This picture is from when I visited the Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth, Massachusetts. We should all be inspired that they were willing to labor, sacrifice, and suffer for the cause of civil and religious liberty. Wouldn’t they be surprised to see what we’ve turned it into today!
There’s a line in America the Beautiful that goes, “Who more than self, their Country loved.” A group of people cared about loving their neighbors and communities and crowned their good with brotherhood. Yet, today our Country is marred with selfishness and violence while political parties care more about grasping power than doing right.
Some schools have started up again. Others have created a facade of starting up so they can access state and federal money. Last week I took my last daughter to get her settled into the Fall semester after the longest Summer in history, (Starting in March!)
One of the most frustrating parts of this hysteria is that there’s no endpoint. There’s no criteria to determine when it’s been long enough to return to normal. When people run a marathon, they work hard and are tired, but they also know the race will eventually get over. We don’t appear to have a moment when we’ve reached the finish line.
Here’s what we need to know: The real virus is THE FEAR. The fear is driving apart families and shaming others if they refuse to join in the fear. Some elected officials are affected by a disease called, “Executive Tyranny”.
Most people don’t remember their dreams at all. However, some dreams are valuable for helping us understand ourselves and the events around us. Recently, a pastor, Dana Coverstone, has had a series of prophetic dreams: (Dream about the first shutdown) (Wolves and Persecution) (October Dream)
Although that’s no guarantee any dream will come true, it behooves us to listen, learn and evaluate if it helps to understand and protect ourselves.
When we went on a buying trip in February, nobody in my industry had any idea the Country would be shut down within six weeks. I feel sorry for the children who are having to live under this cloud of uncertainty. I’d like to be able to interpret life for my son, but we are now “off script”.
Remember that feeling when we saw the second airplane hit the World Trade Center? At first, we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe some airplane was lost, had a really bad pilot or a mechanic made a horrible mistake. Minutes later, we knew it was deliberate. That’s the same way many of us are feeling about the events of this year.
The wanton disregard for the Constitution from legislative bodies and the Supreme Court, the bogus impeachment, hysteria over the virus, releasing prisoners, rioting, the fake coin shortage, blowing up the Federal budget by sending gobs of money to everyone, even dead people, tearing down statues of Christians, defunding police, setting up “snitch hotlines”, shutting down churches, bringing missionaries home from foreign countries, politicians banning a drug that is the cure for COVID, breaking up families at their time of greatest need, contact tracing programs, forced vaccines and creating devastating mandates on small businesses, have all contributed to our understanding that this is more than a coincidence. Listen to the doctors tell us about this sham. (full press conference here)
Whether we win or lose, we want the elections to be fair! Election Fraud has been a problem since elections started. When I was first elected, I thought both political parties wanted to have fair an honest elections. After serving on the Elections Committee, I concluded that the majority of the Democrat elected officials want to make it much easier to cheat. If we lose control over the honesty of our elections, we will never get honest people elected ever again!
There are lots of stories of bad handling of ballots. And here’s one about a cat registering to vote. When you vote through the mail, there’s a chance your ballot may never make it to the election authority. What if there’s a way to track how individuals vote?
We don’t have a skin problem…we have a sin problem. If the Democrat leadership knew how bad they looked pretending to be sympathizers with African slave traders, they may not have wanted to flaunt themselves. Some call this cultural appropriation and it’s not funny.
Is it racism or is it classism? We don’t hear much about class systems in America, but it’s obvious there are elites who are in “the inner circle” who seem to go up the ladder very fast If we truly were a racist country, there is no way Barack Obama would have been elected to the highest office in the Land!
