I HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE IN THIS WAY…


There is a gospel song of a few years ago that uses the melody of a Kenny Rogers song.  The song is “I Have Decided” and it is based familiar because of the country song, “The Gambler.”  Amy Grant’s rendition and that of others inspired me greatly and although some of the lyrics might seem problematic to some, there is an incredible truth embodied in that song.

Recently, I heard the Holy Spirit speak to my heart of hearts and impress upon me that I was to make a choice about how I was going to live.  The question in my heart was, “Are you going to live like a believer or are you going to live in turmoil and fear?”  I thought, “LORD, that is no option, of course, I want to live like a believer.”  The next thought that came to my mind and my heart was, “I know you want to live that way, but will you?”  That is a dramatically different question.  One only requires desire and the other commitment.

The song begins, “I have decided, I’m gonna live like a believer, turn my back on the deceiver, I’m gonna live what I believe.”  The second verse is one that causes some Christians pause.  It says, “I have decided, being good is just a fable, I just can’t ‘cause I’m not able.  I’m gonna leave it to the Lord.”  I sang that song once and had a member of the church tell me that it was scripturally inaccurate and that we could be good.  He insisted that we are to ‘work out our own salvation and determine by our will-power to live godly.’  I don’t disagree but I also have learned that it is Christ in me, and He lives His life through me rather than me exercising will-power and achieving holiness.  I am His and totally dependent upon Him.

This article was not intended to be a theological discussion but an expression of a decision of my heart as an American, a Christian, a Patriot, and a Lover of Freedom.  But, as I have stated on many occasions, I cannot divest what I believe and my faith from every other aspect of my life.  IT IS MY LIFE! 

America is in a terrible state and the ominous cloud of destruction is hanging over this nation like never before witnessed in my lifetime.  Hate has so permeated our society and culture, politics, and interpersonal and interracial relations War is virtually unavoidable.  Over the past few years, we have made a few strides forward only to take several strides backward as politicians attempt to manipulate the people and conditions for their own ambitions.  We are being destroyed and, for the first time in my lifetime, I can see the possibility of the demise of our Republic.  That is deeply troubling for me.

I have decided to live like a believer and turn my back on the deceiver and live what I believe.  I have decided that I will ‘seek first’ the Kingdom of God and His righteousness above and before everything else.  Each of us has the choice to live in fear and allow the turmoil of our world to cause us to live in paranoia and panic or we can choose to live what we believe. 

As many know, my wife has been in a 3 plus year battle with Stage Four Metastatic Breast Cancer that has spread to the liver as well as the bones.  Her pain level has been off the charts from time to time yet we are confident in the Promises of God, His Word, and Grace. 

I am often tempted to abandon my perch on the Wall of Watching for America and the Church and focus solely on her and her needs, but I keep being drawn back by the conviction that I must not allow evil to win.  The destruction would be so catastrophic, and the loss of lives and souls would be impossible for me to defend my stepping back.  Freedom is never Free nor is it Easy to Obtain or Maintain.  It requires investment and involvement.

However, I can say that I have decided that I will live in Faith and Confidence in God.  Our world has become volatile and dangerous.  It is filled with violence, hate, selfishness, and is being divided into sects, groups, and camps alarmingly and dangerously.  That is not surprising for the Bible predicted that thousands of years ago and we are witnessing the fulfillment of biblical prophecies and warnings.  Reading portions of the Bible is like reading the paper or watching the news. 

I have been praying that the LORD will help me develop a mentality, commitment, and confidence that I can be as the three Hebrew Children in Babylon.  In Daniel 3, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego responded to the edict of Nebuchadnezzar that they bow before his image and worship him in a manner that guaranteed their death.  They said, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give you an answer concerning this matter.  If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.  But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image you have set up.” 

The political climate in America is rapidly becoming one in which those who oppose the politically correct view and agenda are deemed expendable, deplorable, and unworthy of living. 

I find it difficult to comprehend how Christians, those who love America and our Freedom and claim to respect and honor the Constitution could allow the Liberal Left to regain power.  The track record of those politicians and ideologues makes it impossible to miss the objective of TOTAL CONTROL desired.  They do not view our Constitutional Rights as granted by God but by the government.  Therefore, they believe they are the arbiters of rights and can decide what rights we can have and what rights we cannot.  That is anathema to my view of America and my faith.

Will I stop speaking out and sounding the alarm on things I see happening and their dangers?  NO!  Will I pull back and go into hiding in paranoia and fear?  NO!  Will I panic if the Left regains control of the government?  NO!  Will I resist the tyranny even and face the probable persecution and possible imprisonment or execution?  THAT IS MY PRAYER and DESIRE.  That is what I have decided.  I have decided to Live FREE!  Free in my mind and free in my heart!  I may be stripped of my freedom physically, but no chain can imprison my mind and heart if I totally trust God and Live What I Believe.

I won’t attempt to detail why the Democrats are the opposite of the principles of both the Bible and our American founding, but I believe the national agenda is.  As a believer, I could never vote for a candidate that supports the destruction of the unborn.  I could never vote for a candidate that wants to strip me of my inalienable rights of Freedom of Speech, Religion, Thought, and my right to protect myself and my family.  I could never vote for a candidate that wants to destroy the sovereignty of the United States of America and allow the free ingress and egress of people regardless of origin and intent.  I could never vote for a candidate that wants to tax me into oblivion and impose total control over my life.  I AM A FREE MAN and those things are contradictory to my freedom and my faith.

You must decide what you are going to do, but as I pull back from time to time to minister to my wife, I am not abandoning the fight only redirecting my focus temporarily.  If I fail to speak on an issue it is because the check-in my heart is that I am to leave it in the hands of God and allow Him to do what He does best without my interference.  If I speak it is because I see danger and feel compelled to sound the alarm.  I Love America and I Love God.   Vote your conscience and determine that Fear will not overpower you, but Faith will prevail in your hearts!

God bless you and God bless America!

THE CHARGE OF LIES…


I keep hearing Democrats, Leftists, Globalists, Marxists, and Never Trumpers insist that Trump lies all the time and has told thousands of lies.  However, those same people offer no genuine factual defense of their charge.  They offer no preponderance of evidence to convict, but excuse or ignore the lies of the Democrats including Biden and Harris.  Obama was given a ‘Lie Free’ card by the media, the Democrats, and far too many on the other side of the political aisle. 

I don’t like lies no matter where or from whom they come.  In my view, when someone lies to me, they are disrespecting me on many levels.  Jesus told the Pharisees in John 8, that they belonged to their father, the devil, and their desire was to carry out his desires and schemes.  Jesus continued that the devil was a murderer from the beginning and there was not even a smidgen of truth in him.  The devil is a liar and the father of all lies.  Therefore, when someone lies, they are being inspired by the devil and evil, not God and good. 

I have had people tell me that there were situations where it was better to tell a little ‘white lie’ than to hurt someone with the truth.  I disagree because the Bible teaches that true freedom comes from the Truth.  In Proverbs 27:6 we read, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”  In Proverbs 11:3 we are given a powerful revelation about character, integrity, and interpersonal interactions.  It says, “The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.” 

During the 2016 primaries and before Donald Trump became the nominee, he was not my 1st choice.  There were things about his personality that troubled this East Texas country boy, a preacher.  He was from New York and I from East Texas and it seemed that we lived in two totally different worlds, and we did. 

However, once I began listening to him, I heard someone speaking of a fight that I could embrace and an ideology that was deeply rooted in my heart, I began to investigate the man and the platform.  A number of things occurred in that process and brought me to the place I could throw my support behind the GOP Nominee, Donald J. Trump for President in 2016.

As always, I began to compare apples to apples or candidates to candidates, and platforms to platforms.  I made a choice in the primaries and my 1st choice fell by the way and then I began to compare the Democrats to the Republicans.  I examined their history, their rhetoric, their proposals, and their agendas.  The more I have viewed the charges of lies against Trump the more I realized that there has been a double standard being applied. I could not overlook the blatant and willful ignoring of fabrications by the Democrats.  I found that distasteful and realized that it was designed to sway public opinion with innuendo rather than substantive proof. 

I wish I could tell you that Trump never lies, I cannot, he probably has and probably does in some things.  However, I also cannot tell you that Biden, Clinton, Obama, Harris, or any Democrats are without falsehood in what they say and do.  I would suggest that most politicians, if not all politicians lie.  The sad thing in that is the lies are often believed and spun in such a manner as to achieve an agenda.  That encourages a continuation of that behavior and practice. 

Unfortunately, I know preachers who speak as it is ridiculously called, ‘evangelistically.’  In East Texas vernacular that means THEY LIE!  They would call it an embellishment of the truth for impact, but I suspect God views it as a negative not a positive.  God does not need, nor do we need, fabrications to advance our cause.  It if is worthwhile, beneficial, and worthy of support a clear presentation of the facts and explanation of the benefits should suffice.  Unfortunately, Hollywood, television, media, business, and politics have conditioned us to desire the juicy tidbits of rumor, innuendo, gossip, and slander. 

It is a sad realization that our voting populace appears to be willing to fall prey to the tactic of denigrating another to elevate the candidate. I would prefer that they articulated their proposals and allowed them to stand or fall on their own merit. When we take that path we are revealing a terrible sickness in our political souls.  That is the current state of American politics.  It is mud, mud, and more mud.  It is real mud, fake mud, distorted mud, and created mud, but it is MUD! 

I have longed for a politician that could, as Ronald Reagan did, articulate the values and benefits of conservatism and constitutionalism.  His economic plan was called ‘Voodoo Economics‘ by none other than the man who would join him on the ticket.  That is eerily similar to the situation with Biden and Harris.  She called him vile names and even said that his female accusers should be believed. That is, she felt that way UNTIL there was an opportunity to prostitute herself ideologically and become the 2nd on the ticket. 

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, and countless other Democrats have told lie after lie and distorted comments of Trump and Republicans with impunity.  Those lies are then used to attack the Republicans and Trump and project on him and us as guilty of the very things they are doing and saying.  Are we that incapable of discernment in America?  Are we that willing to hate to the point that we regurgitate the talking points because it makes us feel good about our continued support of that brand of dirty politics?  If so, then the Soul of America needs Saving and may not be salvageable. 

I find it amazing that even when politicians tell us the truth about their agenda many ignore that factual declaration and believe the spin put on it by the media spinners and political activists.  Politicians, like Adolf Hitler and other despots, would sometimes reveal their true intent and yet, people seemed to embrace such bias and prejudice against the other side or a candidate that they ignored the warnings.  Germany, the Jews, and the world paid for that mistake and willingness to overlook the declared warnings issued by the deranged would be World Dictator.

I am concerned that we are in that condition in today’s America.  I talk to people who detest the Democratic Agenda but detest Trump even more.  They have such an unbendable bias against him that they are willing to risk the republic to see him defeated.  That is beyond dangerous it is deadly!  I detest racism, sexism, bigotry, hate, and lies and want to find the best pathway for America to overcome those issues.  I am realistic enough to know that the human heart cannot be changed through legislation, mandates, or enforcement of politically correct agendas.  It will take a move of God. 

If we want to return to the progress we were making before Barack Obama’s eight years, we must hold all politicians accountable for their distortions, fabrications, embellishments, and LIES!  We need to demand that they fulfill or do all they can to keep their promises, rather than tell us what they think we want to hear to secure our vote.  If we ‘unelected’ enough of them over that very thing, we just might see a move toward honesty in politics.  Unfortunately, I suspect that politics has devolved to the place that those pursuing political careers believe the benefit of that pathway outweighs the negatives.  They suffer no consequences and are thereby emboldened and encouraged to continue. 

God help us to wake up and reclaim our Republic.  You may not like Donald J. Trump as a person but if you consider the objective of the left, you must see that he is our best hope of keeping America Free and give us an opportunity to be restored.  If not, then do what you feel you must.  I will vote for Faith, Family, and Freedom!

God bless you and God bless America!

IS RESEARCH RELIABLE PROOF OF ANYTHING?


I have read, heard, and seen statistical presentations to prove various points of view, and many times I am left with a haunting question.  “Is research alone reliable proof of the hypothesis presented?”  Yes, sometimes it is!  However, I also believe that research data is sometimes jaundiced.  Research, like political polls, can be skewed to prove anything a person wants to prove.  It can taint the final analysis even in people who are basically honest and seeking the truth.  

I have discovered that people can take the Bible, and if not careful, through the use of isolated or selected passages or groups of passages attempt to prove an erroneous doctrine or hypothesis.  You can do that in science, business, or virtually anything.  If there is a bias at the outset, even if it is undetected it will taint the outcome.  Therefore, compiling data does not necessarily prove a theory.  It can be beneficial and if used properly can add additional questions and considerations that with further study and examination can lead to truth. 

The hypothesis that all the racial issues in America are due to White Supremacy is based on flawed data.  I did not say that there has never been nor is there the existence of that mindset.  There is!  However, to argue that racism comes only from whites is a flawed view that can only lead to further division and prevent us from achieving any accord in our society.  It is a virtual guarantee that there will be a second Civil War and none on any side of this issue should desire that.

The lawlessness of rioting and destroying property and lives cannot be justified and should be immediately condemned by everyone.  Those who attempt to appease by arguing that the anger in the rioters and protesters is justified because of the racist actions of whites poisons, the stream rather than providing a healing balm. 

I argue and will continue to argue that Jesus is the Answer to the ills of racial discord in America and the world.  I have had some reject that statement, without allowing me to expand on it. They have said, “If Jesus is the Answer, What Is the Question?”  The question is the HEART!  The question is do we truly understand that ALL were created in the image of God and there is ONLY one race not, races.  There are ethnicities, differing skin pigmentations, cultures, and ideologies but ONE RACE!  The Human Race!

The Bible, in both Testaments, teaches that each person is responsible and accountable for their own sins and actions.  What my ancestors did is not something that I am to be condemned for.  You insist that I am guilty by association or ancestry but that ignores my heart, mind, and history.  If I wrong you, I am guilty and must be held accountable for my actions.  If you wrong me, you are guilty and must be held accountable for your actions.  But, to insist that someone who never endured the evils of slavery should receive remuneration from someone who never imposed that evil is more than a little questionable.

I was asked, “How many times have you been stopped by a black cop?”  This may paint me in a bad light, but I can say, “At least six times, in which I felt that I was being racially targeted.”  I’m sure that will be well received by some, but it is the truth. 

I was stopped by a black Texas State Trooper for doing 1 mile per hour over the speed limit.  I was in a pickup truck.  I had been passed by numerous people of various ethnicities doing at least 15 miles per hour faster than I and none of them were stopped.  He was caustic in his attitude, and I remained calm and respectful giving him no place to respond with force. 

I had one black police officer in Dallas pull me over and he kept his hand on is service pistol the entire time.  The attorney I discussed the incident with informed me that he had dealt with that officer numerous times and each time it was his ticketing or difficulty with a white person.  I was passed over for a promotion and blatantly told me that it was because I was white not because I was not the best qualified.

What has been my response to those incidents?  I have prayed for the LORD to help me continue to view people as Creations of God. I attempt to see people not based on skin color but based on their relationship with God.  I attempt to view everyone I meet as either those who know God or need God.  I refuse to allow ethnicity to determine my response to anyone.  I have been called names, threatened with physical violence, and told by some who identify as Christians that because I refuse to join the appeasement, I am a racist and therefore unqualified to speak to the matter of racial issues.

We always have choices in life.  We can either allow our circumstances to make us victims or we can determine that we will overcome those victimizations and become victors.  Will that be easy?  No.  Will it be easier for some than others?  Yes.  Have there been and is there racial discrimination in today’s world?  Yes.  Can we overcome it by the sanitization of history, destroying lives and property, and destroying our system of government?  No. 

When, I read the accounts of black men and women, in American history who overcame incredible odds to ascend to the pinnacle of success in their chosen profession I am inspired.  I am inspired when I read of anyone overcoming imposing odds, handicaps, and difficulties and succeeding.  I am not so inspired when someone inherited a fortune but am impressed if they took what they had and transformed it into something greater and used it for good.  I am far more inspired by the person than the process or the product.

If we continue to take our statistical mountains of data and research, skewed, or honestly viewed and insist that what we have researched proves the hypothesis we will always leave open the door to deception and division.  I am a Christian and I contend and will always contend that it is the Heart that is the issue, not the situation.  Circumstances and the environment within which we operate are factors, but they are of lesser importance than the heart, the mind, the will, and the determination. 

Here is my plea to the Christians and Preachers and it may irritate some.  Let’s get back to focusing on God’s Love and His Holiness.  Let’s get back to preaching accountability for our actions and training our children in the Precepts and Principles of God and His Moral and Biblical Law.  No, I am not saying, let’s become list carrying legalists but become people who genuinely “Seek God first.”  Let’s become people who follow the New Commandment Jesus gave and “Love one Another.”  Let’s consider people the same as we consider the various parts of our human bodies – Part of the Body!

Love me or hate me, that is your choice.  I refuse to bow at the altar of appeasement and refuse to repent of a sin I did not commit or assume responsibility for the actions of others.  I stand before you and before God responsible for my attitude and my actions as do you.

God bless you and God bless America!

SKEWING THE POLLS…


Few polls are truly random samples and equally balanced between the two sides of a political issue.  Most are slanted in a particular direction with oversampling or the questions are designed to elicit the predetermined desired result.  That appears to be happening in the presidential polls being reported that show Biden a lock for the White House and Trump toast. 

All the liberal Cable Networks and Fox News seem determined to paint a picture to demoralize Trump supporters and make people feel the election is over.  The apparent desire is to discourage enough voters that Trump will face as did Romney a significant number of people going to the polls in November and lose.  If they succeed, Biden wins, but if they fail, it could be quite different than is being reported.  I remain cautiously optimistic but realize that this is a War that must be fought to the finish.

CNN is touting their ‘poll of polls’ which is the five most recent national telephone polls that measure the support among registered voters.  What nobody seems to be willing to acknowledge is that since less than 60% of eligible voters voted in 2016 the sampling may or may not be reflective of the electorate. 

CNN shouts from the rooftop that Biden continues to maintain a significant lead nationally.  They avoid discussion of individual states.  As we all know, a president can lose the popular vote but win the electoral vote and become president.  Trump is not the only president to have been elected in that manner.  But, if you listen to the Liberal Networks, without cheating Trump’s victory was an impossibility. 

In June 2016 CNN and other liberal networks were reporting that Hillary Clinton continued to maintain a double-digit lead over Trump, therefore game over.  But alas, we know that was not the case on election day.  In retrospect, I will acknowledge that despite here physical issues she was largely coherent.  Joe Biden, on the other hand, cannot navigate a news conference or a scripted interview without blundering incoherently.

I find it interesting to note that CNN’s gaggle of polls all oversampled the Democrats and Biden supporters over Republicans and Trump supporters.  Amazing, right?  Hardly.  It has been that way in every election as they have attempted to shape opinion and achieve the desired outcome. 

The Washington Post – ABC News poll reportedly sampled 1,000 adults.  Those were not defined as likely voters, registered voters, or eligible voters, just people who answered the phone and claimed to be an adult.  That’s scientific, right?  They oversampled Democrats by 6% and their sample was taken from 399 Trump supporters and 522 Biden supporters.  I have a question, if they oversampled by such a significant margin in favor of Biden how is he only up the a few points and not 25% or more?

The Quinnipiac University poll of registered voters oversampled by 10% in favor of Biden and the Democrats.  That poll favored Biden by 15% but if you discount the 10% oversampling it would be more like 5% if that.  The illustrious Fox News poll oversampled Biden supporters by 4% and reported that Biden was favored by 8%.  That would make it no more than 4% and be squarely within the margin of error.   An amazing side note was that although the poll indicated Biden favored by 8% it was split evenly on whether Trump would be reelected or not.  How is that even possible?

I know people of various ethnicities who would never state publicly that they support the President but plan to vote for him in November.  If they are polled they are fearful of honestly answering the questions. Even though the polls claim anonymity, everyone, with the IQ of room temperature knows that is false.  If they called, you then they are tracking you and know how you responded. 

I was interested in a Monmouth University poll that indicated there might be a large cache of ‘secret Trump voters’ being discounted and ignored.  Their poll was reported as to affording Biden a lead in support of 53 to 40 percent but Trump received a 46 to 45 percent nod to win the election.  It is virtually the same as asking a sports fan who they want to win the game versus who they think will actually win. 

The Cato Institute conducted a poll that indicated 62% of Americans say they have political views they are afraid to share.  That was broken down as 52% of Democrats, 59% of Independents, and 77% of Republicans.  The only groups that felt fully free to express their views were the ultra and radical liberals.  Of course, they feel free because anyone voicing a dissenting view to the PC View is immediately vilified and branded a bigot or a racist.  Many people do not want to deal with the hassle and attacks that come from voicing their true views.  I don’t happen to be one of those and am willing to declare my support of Trump and opposition to the agenda of the Democrats.

I keep wondering why, if Biden is a lock to win, the Democrats continue to lay the groundwork to oust Trump after the election.  If he will no longer be president in after January, why spend time and money with Plan B because your Plan A is a guarantee?  I will continue to believe that it is because they know that more and more Americans are waking up and realizing that the rioting, anarchy, and dangerous political agenda of the Democrats is not to the advantage or benefit of most Americans.  Many are waking up to the infringements of our Inalienable Rights as is being witnessed today.  I keep hoping and praying!

My position, is I believe in God, am a Christian, a patriot, a lover of Freedom, defender of the Constitution, and an advocate for Life, Liberty, and the ability to pursue Happiness.  I stand for Faith, Family, and Freedom that demands that I vote against the Left and unlike those in the consortium of hate, I appreciate the defense of many of our liberties by this president.  I am not voting for his personality or even his perceived morality, I am voting for someone to fight for my freedoms and America.

God bless you and God bless America!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


Many will undertake the task of defining what the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg means and I now offer my two cents.  This will be brief and may or may not resonate with anyone, but it is the view I have from my perch on the Wall of Watching.

I have no desire to vilify or glorify Justice Ginsberg, she now stands or will stand before the Almighty and explain her life.  Her journey is complete, and the eternal determination is up to God.  I find it of no redeeming value to trash the dead.  I disagreed with many, if not most, of her decisions but that too is in the past and the present and future must be focused on.  She is gone, what now?  What do her death and the timing of her death mean to America and the 2020 elections?

Frankly, I do not know what it will mean for America, nor does anyone else.  It can provide a catalyst to healing and moving forward toward the restoration of a Constitutional America or it can be the final straw in dividing us to the point of total anarchy and a full-blown civil war.  The next few days and weeks will be telling.  We won’t have to wait years to see what will happen because the election is just weeks away and this will provide the pathway for many potential October surprises.

As to the Senate addressing the nomination that the President will offer is a matter that I wish to speak to.  I suggest that everyone think honestly and rationally rather than seek to justify our opinions and preferences. 

The Politics of this will be conducted as it would regardless of which party was in control of the Senate or which party occupied the White House.  If the roles had been reversed and rather than Obama a Republican had occupied the White House and the Democrats controlled the Senate there would have been no consideration of the nominee.  If you honestly think about you, you know that is the truth.

However, if the roles were reversed and the Democrats held the White House and the Senate as the Republicans do now, the nominee would get a floor vote in the Senate. Again, this is politics and politicians do what politicians do.  You know that is the truth although you may make it about Trump it is not, it is about politics and then even more importantly about America.

I contended when the Republicans refused a floor vote on Obama’s nominee, they were taking the wrong approach and should have allowed an up or down vote and dismissed the nominee and moved on.  They did not and now the media, the Democrats, and those that hate this president will make it cannon fodder and attack viciously. 

Based on what has been happening in the Pandemic lockdown, the rioting, and protests, the media diatribe, and the events in pro sports as well as Hollywood and much of the business world, we are in for a very rough ride in the days to come.  I believe the rioting will escalate and the chaos will produce even more destruction and may push is over the edge and create a condition and atmosphere where it is impossible to have any semblance of a peaceful election.  That is beyond dangerous and destructive.

This will likely make the election shift the focus almost exclusively to the Supreme Court where it possibly should be, and the rioting and chaos will either push people toward Trump or away from him.  We have weeks to discover what is going to happen in America’s future.

Here are my prayer and request.  I ask all who name the name of Christ and are Christians to follow the directive of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and pray.  We who are called by His name are directed to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways.  In repentance, humility, and with total dependence upon God we need to intercede for our beloved America.  I truly believe we are standing at the crossroads of Freedom and Tyranny, Liberty, and Political Slavery.  I believe this is a contest between good and evil not between Republican and Democrat.

I pray for the family of Justice Ginsberg and ask God to comfort their hearts and heal them of any hurts and disappointments.  I pray that all, on both sides of the political spectrum can be civil and will somehow open their hearts to the Grace and Peace of God.

God bless you and God bless America!

HATE, ANGER, and DESTRUCTION…


I had a high school basketball coach tell me, “Roy you play your best when you are a little bit angry.”  There was an element of truth in that because when I was bested or someone did something that pressed my button, I became determined that I would not be outdone.  It pushed me into a different gear and my determination caused me to put out a little more effort or a lot more effort.  I could determine from that that anger is good and desirable.  However, I know that if anger is misdirected and misapplied it can be and is incredibly destructive.

It is one thing to become angry at the devil and allow that anger to cause you to focus or refocus on the Promises of God and the destructiveness of the devil and quite another to become angry at people due to hurts or perceived hurts.  A wounded spirit is like a wounded animal, dangerous. 

I’m sure we have all experienced or noticed that when someone states something strongly and with deep conviction, people pay attention.  They may not agree and may become angry in response, but they pay attention.  In a sense, it is, “the squeaky wheel getting the grease.” 

The anger that I have observed over the past four years has produced a dangerous level of animosity and hate that is proving to be destructive.  The anger and hate that has been leveled at President Trump and all who have supported or voted for him have erupted into demonstrations of violence.  Our entire society has become a boiling cauldron of violence that is about to boil over.  We have become a powder keg of destruction and I stay concerned that someone is going to light the wrong match at the wrong time, and we will have an unstoppable explosion of violence.

I am not a psychologist, nor do I play one on TV, but from what I can glean from their views anger arises when there is a perceived unmet need or demand.  Children have been known to throw tantrums when they don’t get their way.  People get into modes of physical violence when their demands or perceived needs are not met or appear to be ignored.  There are reasonable angry reactions and unreasonable ones.  It is limitedly justifiable to become agitated when you get poor service or are on the receiving end of an injustice.  It is unreasonable to allow that anger to escalate to taking a gun or a weapon and seeking to harm or destroy the object of your anger.

Unbridled anger is irrational and often uncontrollable.  Have you ever seen someone become so enraged that they are uncontrollable?  Jean Kim, M.D., a psychiatrist and a Clinical Assistant Professor at George Washington University, said, “Anger overrides all other moral and rational brakes in the brain because it originates from our primordial, original limbic system: the brain center of our most automatic emotions like fear and desire.  While anger feels good at the moment, it is in fact deeply illogical and destructive; it overrides all other moral and rational brakes in the brain.”

Edie Weinstein, MSW, LSW said, “The neurotransmitter chemicals known as catecholamines are released cause a blast of kinetic energy that can last a few minutes.  In a counterintuitive way, feeling bad sometimes feels good.  Like any addiction, anger can induce the discharge of dopamine epinephrine, and norepinephrine.  The adrenalin rush contributes to a sense of strength and invulnerability.  It creates a sense of aliveness.”  That suggests that anger can be addictive as well as dangerous.

I have observed that people who are constantly angry, appear to be addicted to the feelings of anger and the false sense of power it generates.  I find it ironic that many in the liberal community studied how anger becomes addictive in addressing things such as white supremacists and conservatives.  They presented the idea that the anger in those groups was addictive and transformative.  Their idea was that hate could turn normally reasonable people into hate-filled fanatics.  They were not wrong.  The irony is that those in the liberal camp and those following the hate-filled anarchy of today are being so transformed by hate.

I have also observed that a crowd filled with anger and hate becomes contagious and hate and anger spreads through a mob like a virus or a fire.  The Bible has much to say about anger.  In Psalms 37:8 we read, “Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret, not yourself; it tends only to evil.”  In James 1:20 we find, “For the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”  In Proverbs 16:29 we discover, “A man of violence entices his neighbor and leads him in a way that is not good.”  Unbridled anger is dangerous!

Likewise, the Bible addresses hate powerfully, giving warning of its destructiveness.  In Proverbs 10:12 we read, “Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.”  In 1 John 3:15, we find the dire description of hate, “Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”  Hate is corruptive and not only affects relationships it affects the mental, emotional and physical health of the one given to hate.

Anger is destructively dangerous if allowed to have its full vent.  There are those who seek to agitate and incite a crowd of people and cause them to “see red.”  When a crowd becomes violently angry, they become a mob and out of control.  The result is destruction and violence.  We are witnessing that today and some are drawn into the mania and anarchy because their emotions have been preyed upon and angry and infected with the anger of hate. 

Incitement of riots is a criminal offense, but in today’s rioting and incitement to violence, those in power in the cities have largely turned a blind eye and allowed the anger and incitement to plunge the crowds into a state of uncontrollable rage. 

When you mix all the ingredients of today you have a breeding ground for infectious anger borne in hate and the result can only be chaos and violence.  The inducement of misguided anger and misapplied anger by those who want to see disruption is paying negative dividends in America.  The fear and despair produced by the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with the perceived systemic racism and abuse by police have enabled the nefarious to advance their agenda.  The stated objective is destruction and the dismantling of our system of economy and government.  When those seeking that are able to manipulate crowds transforming them into angry out of control mobs the stages are set for destruction.

America, we must not allow this to become the norm and must deal with it as we would a petulant child throwing a temper tantrum.  If you allow the child to continue unimpeded and unpunished you encourage the behavior and give them a sense of entitlement and power that demands that behavior continue.  It gives the idea that the behavior is justified and even righteous.  That is destructive. 

What has been happening is another reason that I will vote NO on all Leftists and vote YES for President Trump as I seek to keep America Free and Constitutional. 

God bless you and God bless America

TERRORISM IS TERRORISM – Foreign or Domestic…


What I am going to say will possible make me persona non grata in some circles including some Christian Groups.  I am a believer in God and a follower of the Christian Faith.  I realize that there are many variations or opinions as to what that means or entails but I believe the Bible is the Word of God, Inspired, and God-breathed.  I believe that America was founded based on the principles, precepts, promises, and providence of God.  Our very system of government has its roots traceable to the Bible and the Ten Commandments.  I believe in following the Constitution, am politically and fiscally conservative, and love America! 

Much of what I have been observing over the past few years, if not decades have been a form of terrorism that began as a seed or idea and has fully blossomed into action.  There are those on the Right and on the Left as well as those in the Church and the non-believers who disagree, but it is my view.  America is being terrorized, not from without but from within.  We are watching the systematic destruction of our system of government and an attack on our way of life.  That cannot be ignored and must be addressed if we are to survive as the Free Constitutional Republic founded through the efforts of 1776 and beyond.

What is ‘domestic terrorism?’  Let’s begin with a workable definition given in Section 802 of the USA Patriot Act.  That section defines it as “acts in violation of state or federal criminal laws that are “dangerous to human life” and “appear to be intended” to either (i) “intimidate or coerce a civilian population,” (ii) “influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion,” or (iii) “affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assignation, or kidnapping.”  THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING!

The intimidation of the civilian population is clear.  The coercing of government officials impossible to deny.  The mass destruction is revealed in the ashes of the cities burning.  The assignation of police is undeniable.  The calls to kill those who are of a different ethnicity, skin pigmentation, or ideology can be called nothing but TERRORISM! 

The actions of ANTIFA, BLM, and other groups are all endorsed by the Democratic Party and it could be argued they are doing the dirty work desired by the Leftists.  The anger and hate that is boiling over in that party and America are deadly, destructive, and incredibly dangerous.  It cannot be ignored.  It must be called what it is, TERRORISM!

We are watching the actions of the destroyers (terrorists) and the accolades afforded them by the liberal leftist politicians and media types infect our entire society.  America is being destroyed by terrorist and the terrorist are home-grown and educated in this republic.  We are destroying ourselves and attempting to turn a blind eye to the problem only exacerbates the problem. 

If we are truly for Constitutional governance and the Rule of Law, we MUST address this issue and hold the guilty accountable.  Justifying violence and criminality is an attempt at appeasement that will erode the foundations of our Republic and bring about our demise.  Trump is not the culprit causing this, he is simply the target of their anger because it plays well and resonates with those seeking justification for their hate and violence.  The Democratic Party, in my view, is lighting fires everywhere they find any dry twigs and egging on violence hoping to see it continue through the November elections. 

The plan or desire to ‘defund the police’ and replace them with civilian patrols is beyond insane, it is deadly.  They know it, the cities know it, and the terrorist know it.  It is giving the terrorist carte blanche to destroy, maim, kill, loot, and terrorize.  That must end!  The threatening of politicians, churches, businesses, and individuals is not an American way, but a methodology of tyrants and terrorists. 

I wonder how America would respond if ISIS landed hordes of troops on our shores and began burning our cities and neighborhoods.  If they murdered citizens, maimed the innocent, desecrated monuments, buildings, and even cemeteries what would be our response?  I would hope that we would unify and rise up, in arms, and squash their destruction.  Why are we regarding this domestic terrorism differently?  Because it is politically correct and we are terrified of being branded a racist, bigot, or some other derogatory label.           

Imagine a group claiming to be against fascism and engaging in fascist tactics.  I would argue that Hitler would win the nomination of the Democratic Party today because so many are ideologically aligned with Marxism and Fascism.  He could win if he modified his position on ‘whites’ and branded what he was trying to do as ‘social justice.’  He could chant through his ‘brown shirts’ Death to the Fascist all the while engaging in Fascist actions and pushing Fascist agendas.

The very party that advocated for ‘white supremacy’ during the Civil War era is now attempting to blame all the ills of our society on ‘white supremacy.’  They ignore the bigotry and racism oozing out of many sides of this equation.  I was stunned recently when a major White Supremacy Leader announced he and his organization were fully behind Joe Biden.  The idea was that Biden embodied more of what they desired than Trump and therefore, they would be Ridin’ with Biden.  Wow!  I wonder how that will play out and how it would be viewed if it were given any news coverage. 

The Democratic Party of today has either become a domestic terrorist organization that wants to totally dismantle and destroy the Republic or the neck that turns the head has become the radical activists of the Left.  Either way, America is paying and will pay an enormous price for ignoring the reality of the existence of Domestic Terrorism in today’s America. 

We endured the Weather Underground in the ’60s, and today are being inundated by the Neo-Nazis and Socialist Party USA along with the numerous Soros funded foundations.  We have watched the Southern Poverty Law Center and other groups unite in a literal war against our system of government and way of life.  Our freedoms are at stake and if we continue to ignore the reality of domestic terrorism, we will abet the destruction of our Republic.  I Cannot and Will Not Passively Allow That to Happen!

We do not negotiate with terrorists, so we say.  I say it is time to cease all negotiations with these domestic terrorists and let them feel the full brunt of the Law and the full weight of our Constitution.  Our greatest weapon is our Vote and our Prayers, so please prayer urgently and vote in November. Let’s defeat the Leftists and their brand of Fascism and Marxism.  I am asking for a return and preservation of the Free Constitutional American Republic we were given.  I am voting NO on the Democrats!

God bless you and God bless America!

THE CONTRAST IS CLEAR…


I realize that I may sound like a broken record but what is happening in America is not simply politics as usual or a temporary bump in the road.  This is not just another of a long line of political cycles and we will recover if we just bide our time.  This is WAR!  It is a War for Survival.  It is a War for Freedom!  It is a War for Republicanism versus Socialism, Marxism, and Globalism!  It is War for the Soul of America!

I know that some may immediately discount those declarations and insist that it is all Trump’s fault, or if we just wait, the political cycle will run its course and we will, down the road, return to a more sane condition in society.  I contend that day will never come again if we do not resoundingly defeat the anarchy and push toward Marxism now!  It is, in my mind, now or never!

Today’s Democratic Party and their nominee Joe Biden, have tacitly sanctioned the sedition that is running rampant in our cities.  They have betrayed the American people, the Republic, the Vision of our Founding, and abetted those who have declared war on America and Americanism.  I wish that I was referring to a foreign enemy that had declared war, but it is from within our own citizenry that the war is coming. 

There comes a time when failure to condemn evil is to participate in that evil and become an ally of it.  That is what has happened in the Democratic Party of today.  They have not only failed to condemn the rioting, looting, destruction, and anarchy but have openly encouraged it and even marched with the destroyers in their cities. They have acquiesced to the demands of the domestic terrorist and the Mainstream Media is in lockstep with them and their agenda.

Our universities are filled with dedicated Marxists ideologues who are poisoning the minds of our youth indoctrinating them with philosophies that are anathema to Freedom, Free Market Capitalism, and our Founding Principles.  When groups openly declare that their prime objective is the overthrow of our current system of government, that, by its very definition, is Sedition.  The objective to ‘fundamentally transform’ our republic is being enacted in city after city by anarchists, politicians, and the media.  We are in War!

The Sedition is receiving no push back from Biden, the Democrats, and even some Republicans are attempting to board that train hoping to appease and gain votes.  We have members of some police forces, the military, professional and collegiate sports endorsing, participating, and bowing to the demands of the revolutionary anarchist.  That does not bode well for the future of the Republic.  We have virtually Zero Democrats offering any condemnation and too few Republicans.  However, the contrast is clear when it comes to the National Platform which Party is standing against and which is standing for America and the continuation of the Republic. 

I warn, and you can call me whatever you please, but I warn that if we allow the Leftists to take over the federal government, gain power in state and local governments we are sentencing ourselves to political death.  I cannot fathom how anyone using any modicum of reason would desire to allow the appeasers and their senescent mannequin to occupy the White House.  The present condition visible in our cities and streets should be enough to reveal how incredibly dangerous and destructive that would be.  Why it isn’t is beyond my ability to comprehend.

What is amazing is that the extremists make up no more than 15% of registered Democrats yet are controlling the narrative, the agenda, and the rhetoric.  They have effectively taken over the Democratic Party and plunging the nation into a period of darkness that can only end in blood-filled streets and end in Civil War II.  Any American that desires that, is not thinking clearly because the long-term devastation would likely produce a condition that we could never overcome.  It would, likely, be the end of the Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America. 

We have the so-called movers and shakers or captains of business boarding this train of anarchy seeking to atone for their self-inflicted guilt and win the politically correct approval.  We have the NeverTrump coalition along with a broad array of talking heads on TV, along with countless bloggers joining forces to defeat and dump Trump.  The personal animus toward this man is beyond anything I have ever witnessed or could imagine.  I believe it is rooted in something far more than simple hate for him.  It is a condition that is being manipulated and belched out of hell itself. 

How quickly we have forgotten the warnings of history and are traveling the road of Germany in the 1930s.  History reveals that Hitler was enabled to complete his quest to control when he was appointed Chancellor in 1933.  I find the similarities of Hitler’s audacity and boldness to openly declare that if his Nazi Party failed to win the election, they would seize power through violence and what is happening amazing.  We hear that threat in America in 2020 by the anarchist.  Germany attempted to appease him and his followers and that is exactly what is happening in America today. 

In Germany, the leaders of industry, fearing the impending violence of the Nazis, attempted to buy protection by funding the Nazi cause and turned their backs on the Weimar Constitution.  That is eerily like what is happening in today’s America.  Truly if we fail to remember the warnings and reality of history, we not only repeat it, but we plunge deeper into the abyss of darkness.  Is that where we are headed?  Yes, unless we wake up and defeat the current Sedition.

The Democrats, the NeverTrumpers, the Media, and other members of the Swamp think they can control this faction and see them as useful tools to attain power.  They are wrong!  This faction will turn on those allies if the attempt to control them is attempted.  If their demands are not met, they will attempt to burn the republic to the ground.  The only possible result of that would be armed resistance from the lovers of freedom and no matter which side the government endorses, War would be the result.  

The Contrast is clear and if you are willing to risk the Republic, go ahead and push your chips to the center of the table and join the Leftists.  Those of us supporting the President and objecting to the views and agenda of the Left will not be the only ones suffering, you will also.  The Republic will become an easy mark for foreign foes who want to destroy and control us.  We will see War from within and War from without and America will become a faint memory.

I believe it is that dire!  You may disagree and that is your inalienable right.  You may think I am a fear-monger, that too is your right.  You may think I am overreacting, and I hope you are right.  However, I am 100% convinced that what I am warning is not an overreaction but a reading of the handwriting on the wall.  I pray that enough people will realize the danger before it is too late and Vote in November to preserve America!

God bless you and God bless America!

SOUNDING THE ALARM…


I am going to share this in my blogs and what I am going to say will resonate with some and possibly turn some off.  I am speaking strictly from my Christian perspective and the desire of my heart for a deeper relationship relationship with God and my love for my nation.  This is a different type of post I am placing in www.roybeaird.com but a more normal one for www.royscovenantcorner.com but I hope it is meaningful and helpful.

The LORD is stirring my heart more than He has in a long time over what is happening in America, the world, and the church.  I am shaken to the core of my being and drawn to seek the LORD more than ever.  I take the command and commission of Jesus extremely seriously and am seeking to understand and pursue Him with my entire being.

Jesus gave us some incredibly specific and pertinent instructions in Matthew 6.  In verses 9-13 we are given what we have called the “Lord’s Prayer” but it is actually the prayer that Jesus gave us an example or pattern for us, His disciples.  Then in verses 33-34, we are given instruction or our our mission and assignment in life.  This is paramount over all else that we can think or do.  I believe it is the key to success or failure.  It is the key to liberty or tyranny.  It is the key to life or death.  It is something that we mentally ascribe to but practically bypass.

The directive here and elsewhere in including a dozen or more places in the Old Testament is that we are to Love and Seek God with our entire being, body, soul, and spirit. Seeking God FIRST is critical but what is the purpose of seeking Him first?  Is it that we can feel good about ourselves, get goosebumps, have notoriety, or do some exploit? 

In order to answer that question, I ask that we go back to the earlier part of Matthew 6 and the prayer.  We are instructed to pray, “Thy Kingdom Come.  Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  We are to seek the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and our purpose is to bring the manifestation of that Kingdom to the earth so that God’s will is done here as it is in heaven.

How do I seek the Kingdom of God?  Is it through petition and prayer pleading for God to come to us?  I suggest that everything that Jesus did was for the purpose of action and was our example.  He was fully God and choose to live and operate as fully man.  A man totally obedient to God and filled with the Holy Spirit.  He thought with a heavenly mind.  Jesus revealed that He only did what He saw the Father do and only said what He heard the Father say. In John 5:30 our LORD said, “By myself, I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please Myself but Him that sent me.” 

What could Jesus do in His own power?  NOTHING!  Before you protest and say, “But He is God and God can do anything.”  Remember that Jesus chose to operate fully as man, a man dependent upon the Spirit of God and the Father.  Jesus is an example of what one person can do who is totally dependent, totally obedient, and filled with the Holy Spirit.  Jesus told us that with God all things are possible.  The Bible tells us that we are IN Him and seated WITH Him in heavenly places.  He has given us power and authority over all the power of the devil.  Therefore, we can do all things through obedience and faith.  NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE to them that believe (Mark 9:23).

THE WARNING AND PROBLEM:

We become what we focus on.  Our lives, thoughts, actions, and conditions are determined by what we fill our hearts and minds with.  Whatever most fills our hearts and heads determines who we are and what we do.  It determines whether we live and operate in faith, victory, and power, or fear, defeat, and bondage. 

If we hear what the Mainstream Media says more than what God says we will live in fear, anger, jealousy, envy, and defeat.  We will be unable to exercise the Christ-given authority that the Cross won.  We will not be able to bring the Kingdom of God into our present world or situation.

If we focus on the abuses or perceived abuses or other injustices of the world and any inequalities, we will live defeated and driven by our emotions.  On the other hand, if we realize that we have authority over the powers of darkness we will bring the Kingdom of God into the present situation, and through our lives and actions, we will bring peace and become a drawing light to Christ. 

Paul taught us the importance of our thoughts and instructed us to “think heavenly thoughts not earthly thoughts.”  There is no contest between God and the devil.  We do not have two all-powerful gods we have The Living God and the devil, a created being.  God could mash him like a bug anytime.  But God has chosen to operate in this world through our invitation and obedience. 

Let me illustrate it this way and hopefully, it will resonate.  If I own a home and rent it to you.  I am the owner and have a master key but without your invitation, I cannot enter that house.  While you are meeting the requirements of the lease agreement it is your home.  I own it.  I am ultimately responsible for it, but I have made an agreement with you to manage it.  God owns all things.  He created man but He has chosen to allow us to be fruitful and replenish His creation.  He has chosen to allow us to follow the desires of our hearts.  He has given us choice and we either live in obedience or rebellion.  We either trust the arm of flesh or the arm of God.

THE PROBLEM:

The problem with this present day is not people!  It is not even what they do!  The problem is the existence and operation of evil and our disobedience or ignorance of God’s provisions, purposes, and desires.

If we focus on what is wrong and what people are doing, or people, we will be controlled by earthly thinking and never see the full victory He has promised and provided.  God has invited us to enter into a relationship with Him where we can have the Kingdom of God live and manifest in us.  In that relationship, we view everything from the perspective of What Is in Him not What Is in the Present World.  We move from what we see with our natural eyes, hear with our natural ears, and experience in our natural emotions to a Kingdom Consciousness and a God Consciousness. 

The Spirit of God in us is not a Lake it is a River.  He is in us to flow out from us and impact those around us.  We do not have His presence to simply make us feel good we have His presence to impact our world.  We are salt and light.  We are the flavor the world needs.  When we walk into the room, things change, or they should.  Why?  Because of the presence of God in us and the Expectation that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

God has given us an Impossible Assignment.  A commission that we cannot fulfill in our own strength.  The only way we can complete our Life Purpose is in Total Reliance on God.  We must become totally obedient.

Believers, if we want to see America and the World saved we must change our mindset and worldview from what we see in the natural, what we can do in the natural to GOD, and become people who have a limitless expectation. 

I have so much I’d like to say but for the sake of a little brevity and the limitations of posting on social media, I conclude saying, “What happens in the world is up to the Body of Christ.”  We either become who God says we are and exercise the authority of Christ and enforce the victory He won on the Cross or we operate in our own strength and flounder from battle to battle often defeated and relishing momentary and temporary victories.  We win a few battles but not the War!

I am determined to become a vessel that He can use and allow the Holy Spirit to enable me to end my stinking thinking and become Kingdom and God-conscious.  I refuse to live in defeat when He has provided the Victory.  I refuse to allow the devil to steal, kill, and destroy when Jesus said, I have authority over Him.  I will resist the devil by seeking God and expect the devil to retreat.  IT IS UP TO US, IN AND THROUGH HIM!

God bless you!

WHAT IS THE REAL AGENDA?


Call me a conspiracist, I don’t care. But, I have an inkling deep inside my heart of hearts that something incredibly sinister is afoot in all the paranoia of today’s America and world.  I believe it extends far beyond the shores of the United States and has tentacles reaching into every nation on the planet.  I believe this agenda is not birthed in the heart of man but the bowels of hell and has its roots back to before the creation in Genesis.  That may be enough to cause some to stop reading, but I hope you continue even if from a desire to debunk what I am going to assert. 

The incredible paranoia over COVID-19, a real virus with a real threat, is beyond reason.  We have had other pandemics and health threats to America and the world, but we have never witnessed the rapid, extensive, and compulsive and willing shutdown that has occurred.  There is vast disagreement in the political, economic, and medical communities as to what we should or should not do, but the path chosen was a mandatory ‘shelter in place’ edict.  That lock-down destroyed our economy and disrupted the lives of multiplied millions worldwide. 

The efforts of the President and those wanting to help America return to some semblance of normalcy have been stymied and hampered by the Blue State Mayors and Governors as well as the Democrats in Congress and even some Republicans.  Yet, despite their efforts to keep the economy in shambles until after November, we are seeing hopeful signs of recovery and if everyone on both sides of the political aisle would work together, we would see it restored and Americans the beneficiaries. 

The Rioting and Anarchy that is being pursued and even encouraged by some politicians have a deeply sinister side.  I object to being called insensitive, a bigot, or a racist if I replace “Black Lives Matter” with “All Lives Matter.”  My assertion is not intended to ignore the reprehensible treatment of blacks or other ethnicities in our American history.  It is designed to acknowledge that ALL Lives Matter to God and should to us.  We will never achieve the purported objective of “equal treatment” if we segment or segregate society and insist that we only view the ill-treatment of one ethnicity.  If we cannot view everyone as created in the image of God, we cannot find a pathway to peace. 

When I read the research and websites of groups such as ANTIFA, BLM, the many Soros funded organizations I am deeply troubled.  Some of the declarations on their websites and the open statements of some of the leaders it further convinces me that my suspicions are right about the sinister evil behind this disruption. 

The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty lists the BLM founding principles as “guaranteed minimum income for all black people, free health care, free schooling, free food, free real estate, gender reassignment surgery, free abortion, and a global liberation movement [designed to] overturn U.S. Imperialism and Capitalism.”  What can we call that except Socialism coupled with revolution?  I vote no and say that is the pathway to destruction, not peace.

The co-founder of BLM, Patrisse Cullors was a protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview she even said in 2015 that her fellow agitators were “trained Marxists.”  If that does not trouble you regardless of your ethnicity, then I am even more troubled.  It should be repulsive to everyone.

I am encouraged when some astute, clear thinking, and awakened members of the black community see the dangers and resist.  One example came from the president of the Englewood Political Task Force in the Chicago area as a group of black citizens were chasing away the rioters.  He said, “If your issue is with the police, take it to police headquarters.  Don’t come to our neighborhood.  If our people want to protest the police, they can do it.  But no one from the [White] northside or Indiana or any place other than Englewood can come here to protest.”  He was not opposed to protests but opposed to the massive destruction and rioting.  He is right.

The issues with ‘vote by mail’ are so undeniably dangerous, if we trust the postal system to conduct our election, we will destroy our system of elections.  I do not wish to charge postal carriers with fraud or make the guilty without a trial but when we have 300,000 active and retired letter carriers endorsing Joe Biden, I grow concerned.  I would be concerned if that same number endorsed Trump.  I want free and fair elections and when the USPS has already advised they are ill-prepared and unable to fulfill this task, we should listen and resume our customary manner of balloting.

Why the massive push to ‘vote by mail?’  Is it because there is genuine concern for the health of those getting out to vote?  If so, why are we allowing the protests, going to the grocery store, or any other place?  Why are we not experiencing a totalitarian martial law with mandatory house arrest for all citizens?  If voting in person poses that kind of threat, then no one should be allowed of their houses for any purpose.  Wait?  If we do that, how will we survive?  We won’t and the government will be in total control.  This is not about protecting citizens but shaping and shifting the election in favor of one side or the other.  I VOTE NO!

Let me cite an incident that exemplifies and amplifies my concerns and what I believe should be the concerns of everyone.  In Washington state, which has had mail-in elections for years.  In that state, the postal workers attach partisan campaign material to mail-in ballots.  Democratic candidate Alicia Rule, running for the 42nd Legislative District seat, was either dumb or had a brain fart when she posted on Facebook.  She said, “Ballots arrived today!  Mine was carefully tucked together with a flyer by our neighborhood postal worker.  I am reminded of just how much support we have because even that postal workers union has endorsed our campaign.”  That is being investigated by the USPS Inspection Service.  Am I hopeful this will be dealt with?  You guess!

The Democrats are not decrying this kind of chicanery.  Biden is peddling the fallacious rhetoric that failing to allow ‘vote by mail’ is somehow voter suppression and Trump is trying to steal the election.  The Postal Service has notified no fewer than 46 states that the sudden expansion required would be impossible to fulfill.  When you couple that with the reality that postal workers are anything but nonpartisan, you must see a potential danger.  I want everyone eligible to have the opportunity to vote.  I believe there are some cases where a mail-in ballot is necessary. However, for most, it is not.  We also need Photo Identification to better ensure that the person voting is the person at the voting booth.  One person, one vote, and that vote must be that person’s vote!

You may dislike or disagree with my concerns and assertions, but I believe there is a very diabolical objective and agenda afoot.  If the Leftist regain total control of the government, our Freedoms, Rights, and Liberties will be in jeopardy.  This is not a bump in the political road, this is a washed-out bridge, and failure to recognize it and defeat the agenda will mean doom for our Republic.

God bless you and God bless America!
