TO HIM THAT KNOWETH TO DO GOOD
So much for that First Amendment right to freedom of the press. The U.S. has dropped to spot 45 in this year’s ranking of countries based on press freedom, conducted by NGO Reporters Without Borders.
The survey ranked 180 countries based on factors such as pluralism, media independence, media environment and self-censorship, legislative framework, transparency, and the quality of the infrastructure that supports the production of news and information. The index is compiled via a questionnaire distributed to experts based on both quantitative data and qualitative analysis.
VIRGINIA MONUMENTS DEFACED
Confederate monuments in Charlottesville were defaced overnight with apparent references to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, city police confirmed.
The words “The Pandemic” were found spray-painted onto the bases of monuments honoring Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, accompanied by arrows pointing upward at statutes of either.
Both incidents are under “investigation.” The paint has since been removed by the Charlottesville Parks & Recreation Department.
SEAN HANNITY IS NOT A PATRIOT! – SHOWS TRUE COLORS
“I’m the number one supporter [on] radio and television, that I know of, [of the] First Amendment and the Second Amendment. Now, no one is a bigger defendant of the Second Amendment than yours truly,” Hannity said Monday night on his televison program.
“Everyone has the right to protest, protect themselves and try to get the country open,” the host said as video rolled of Thursday’s protest in Lansing. “This, with the militia look here, and these long guns, uh… no. Show of force is dangerous. That puts our police at risk. And by the way, your message will never be heard, whoever you people are.”
“No one should be attempting to intimidate officials with a show of force, and God forbid, something happens,” the host continued. “Then they’re going to go after all of us law-abiding Second Amendment people.”
Thus, he would have been against the intimidation of British troops in the war of independence!
Hannity speaks like one who is a GOP diehard, a run-of-the-mill “law and order” republican, not a patriot.
MEANWHILE, IN CANADA
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a ban on all “assault-style” firearms. The ban includes “1,500 models and variants,” including the popular AR-15 rifle. It will prohibit those firearms, as well as some components, from being used, sold or imported.
NON-HERITAGE NEWS AFFECTING THE SOUTHLAND:

REAL ORIGINS OF FACEBOOK
Facebook, contrary to what people believe, is NOT a Cinderella story. The idea that Facebook was developed in two weeks, by a 19-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, a sophomore at Harvard University, is unrealistic. That’s the official story, but in reality, it was developed by teams of engineers over many years. Since the early ’90s, the Pentagon was working on a project called Lifelog, that would collect personal information for political control. Before it was rolled out, Lifelog needed a transformation, to allure college kids. Facebook was born, and Mark Zuckerberg, the Harvard genius would become the figurehead.
“…aspects of LifeLog might have survived, albeit under a different name. “It would not surprise me to learn that the government continued to fund research that pushed this area forward without calling it LifeLog,” Lee said. As far as we know, nothing came of DARPA’s AI secretary.
It was the private sector, not the government, that is coming close to turning Gage’s LifeLog, Bell’s MyLifeBits, and Bush’s Memex into reality for millions of people. And ironically for privacy advocates, we practically beg for it.
In 2004, Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin founded Facebook. Three years later, Apple introduced the iPhone. Aftergood described smartphones and social media as “LifeLog equivalents.”
More recently, wearable devices and smart-home systems like Alexa have accelerated our acceptance of digital life logs…”
OBAMA VIOLATES STAY AT HOME ORDER
Last week two PSAs featuring former first lady Michelle Obama urging African Americans to stay home in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus were released. Prominent African American radio hosts who have nationally syndicated shows shared the PSAs with their audiences.
“Hi everybody, it’s Michelle Obama. Our communities are among the hardest hit by the coronavirus, and we’ve got to do everything we can to keep each other safe,” says the former first lady in the 30-second PSA. “And that means staying home because even if we are not showing any symptoms, we can still spread the virus to others. Let’s keep each other safe by just staying home. Thank you so much and God bless.”
Apparently, her husband didn’t get the memo. The day after the PSAs were released, Barack Obama was seen playing golf at Robert Trent Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia.
ASIA SENDS NEW PLAGUE TO AMERICA
A roughly two-inch long insect known as the “murder hornet” has made its way to the U.S. for the first time ever, researchers said. The Asian giant hornet, Vespa mandarinia, has been known to kill up to 50 people a year in Japan, according to The New York Times, and has the potential to devastate U.S. bee populations, which have already been declining.
Susan Cobey, bee breeder with Washington State University’s Department of Entomology, told WSU Insider that the hornets are “like something out of a monster cartoon with this huge yellow-orange face.”
The hornets are usually between 1.5 to 2 inches long, have large yellow-orange heads with prominent eyes, and a black and yellow striped abdomen.
MORE THAN 9 LIVES
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Tuesday with an infection caused by a gallstone, but plans to take part in the court’s arguments by telephone Wednesday, the Supreme Court said.
The 87-year-old justice underwent non-surgical treatment for what the court described as acute cholecystitis, a benign gallbladder condition, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
She is resting comfortably and expects to be in the hospital for a day or two, the court said.
Ginsburg took part in the court’s telephone arguments Monday and Tuesday. She initially sought medical care Monday, when the gallstone was first diagnosed.
FED MORE DANGEROUS THAN CORONA
Dr. Ron Paul Has been actively practicing medicine for more than 40 years. For 20 of those years, he served in the United States Congress.
Additionally, Ron Paul was the nominee for the Libertarian Party in the 1980 Presidential race. He sought the Republican nomination in both 2008 and 2012.
Last week the Federal Reserve announced it will keep interest rates at or near zero until the economy recovers from the government-imposed shutdown. Following this announcement, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell urged Congress and the Trump administration to put aside any concerns about the deficit and spend whatever it takes to stimulate the economy and combat coronavirus.
The Federal Reserve previously announced it would make unlimited purchases of Treasury securities, thus encouraging Congress and the president to increase spending and debt. With some members of Congress talking about another multi-trillion-dollar stimulus bill, and with President Trump proposing a two trillion dollars infrastructure plan as a way to get Americans back to work, it is obvious, and not surprising, that Congress and President Trump gleefully agree with Powell’s advice.
Increasing the purchase of federal debt is not the only action the Fed has taken in a desperate attempt to keep the economy afloat. Since the coronavirus lockdowns began in early March, the Fed has greatly expanded its balance sheet. The Federal Reserve has also launched an unprecedented program to “loan” money directly to businesses.
While some states are beginning to end the lockdowns, it may be months or even another year before all the lockdowns are finally ended. It is unlikely that the economy will completely recover after the shutdown ends.
The economy was teetering on the brink of a recession months before anyone heard of coronavirus. Last September, a panicked Fed began emergency infusions of cash into the repurchasing market, which is where banks make short-term loans to each other. The Fed’s balance sheet expansion also began in September. The Fed was also pushing interest rates down before the coronavirus panic, and it will likely keep rates at or even below zero long after the crisis related to the shutdown subsides.
Economic stagnation combined with zero or negative interest rates remove incentive for people to save. This depletes the supply of private capital available to invest in businesses and jobs. The lack of private capital will put pressure on the Federal Reserve to maintain, and even expand, its new lending programs indefinitely.
Each of the Federal Reserve’s responses to the coronavirus shutdown increases the distortions of the market caused by the Federal Reserve’s meddling with the money supply and interest rates. These increased distortions guarantee the inevitable crash will be much more severe than the current downturn. The one upside is that the next meltdown will likely lead to the end of the fiat money system and thus the end of the welfare-warfare state.
The only way to minimize the coming crisis is to begin immediately unwinding the current system. The first step is to end the lockdown and let businesses reopen and people go back to work. Congress must then begin challenging monetary policy by passing the Audit the Fed bill. Congress should also cut spending, starting with ending our hyper-interventionist foreign policy and bringing the troops home. Ending the welfare-warfare state and the fiat money system may cause some short-term pain, but that pain will be dwarfed by the long-term gains in liberty, peace, and prosperity.
THE “SCIENCE” OF CAGING A COMPLIANT MAJORITY
David Cole has spent the past eighteen years as David Stein the “Republican Party Animal,” working with GOP higher-ups and blogging for major conservative sites.
His “outing” has provided many examples of cringe-inducing humor, detailed in his book Republican Party Animal.
In late February, a seven-year legal battle finally reached its conclusion, but nobody noticed. It should have been a big story, but it was eclipsed by the Chinese viral apocalypse. Which is ironic, because even though, at first glance, the legal battle in question has absolutely nothing to do with COVID, thematically, it’s surprisingly relevant.
To put it mildly, Justina Pelletier has had a rough life. A premature baby, she was born with cartilage wrapped around her colon, leading to years of stomach cramps, intestinal blockages, and an absence of bowel control. Many surgeries followed, including a cecostomy. By the time she was a teenager, Justina was being treated at Tufts Medical Center for mitochondrial disease (cellular malfunction). At age 14, her compromised body was hit with a life-threatening flu, which weakened her to the point where she couldn’t walk. Her physicians at Tufts recommended that she be taken by ambulance to Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH).
And that’s where things went south. The BCH doctors decided that Justina wasn’t sick at all! According to them, her “maladies” were psychosomatic. So, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) was called in. Justina was declared a ward of the state, and confined to a room in the hospital’s psychiatric unit.
Why did the BCH doctors believe that Justina had to be separated from her parents? Were there suspicions the girl was being beaten? Sexually abused?
Nope. Justina’s mom and dad were “very nice, intelligent, well-intending parents.” Those are the exact words of a neurologist who helped make the case for her imprisonment.
Justina needed to be isolated from her folks because her claims of being sick (and the confirmation from Tufts that she was sick) “were validated by her parents.” She needed to be thrown in a cage because her parents believed her. Dr. Jurriaan Peters, who treated Justina at BCH, claimed that the parents had created a “pathological feedback loop” wherein “anytime a person says they’re sick, it’s endorsed or validated.”
“We wanted the parents not to encourage the ‘sick role,’ but rather, encourage her about positive things and to be independent and a teenager,” Peters said.
BCH doctor Colleen Ryan agreed; Justina’s parents would “obsess over her medical problems,” whereas Ryan thought they should put “less focus on negative aspects of her health and more on her positive experiences.”
Justina was confined to a psych ward because her parents, believing both their daughter and the Tufts doctors, “obsessed” over her illness while not being “positive” enough. So to counteract that “negativity,” the state locked her in a cell. I doubt I have to point out the incongruity of putting a child in the most negative environment imaginable because her parents weren’t providing the positive environment her health supposedly demanded.
Yet while vilifying the parents, BCH never tried to explain how the doctors at Tufts got the diagnosis so wrong. If the Tufts docs were right, then so were the parents (who wouldn’t “obsess” over their child’s potentially fatal illness?). BCH, and the state of Massachusetts, bypassed that question entirely.
The Pelletier case proved “problematic” for the “IFL Science” crowd, those smug hipster smart-asses who champion science over quackery. This was not a tale of scientists vs. faith healers. Pelletier had been diagnosed as actually sick by brainy Ph.D.s at Tufts (the best in New England!), and diagnosed as not actually sick by brainy Ph.D.s at BCH (the best in New England!). Two different sets of medical geniuses looked at the same patient and the same test results and came to two incompatible conclusions (“Justina Pelletier is suffering from mitochondrial disease,” “Justina Pelletier does not have mitochondrial disease”).
To cop a line from The Prestige, “exact science is not always an exact science.” In Pelletier’s case, either the brainy mugs at Tufts were wrong, or the brainy mugs at BCH were wrong. They couldn’t both be right. But the state, in all its horrific glory, had to choose a side. Was Pelletier in need of intervention or not? And the state naturally sided with the doctors whose opinion allowed the state to do what it does best: display dominance. If the BCH doctors were correct, the state would get to toss a little white girl into a padded cell and destroy a family. So of course the Boston doctors were “right.”
Anytime government gets the opportunity to expand its power, whether over one person or an entire city, it will. If there’s a scientific debate between two sides, and one of those sides is advocating a position that would give government a reason to justify its existence and flex its muscles, that is the side government will choose. Siding with BCH allowed the state to pen a little girl “for her own good.”
And now we are penned “for our own good.” This course of action has been decided upon by mayors and governors who claim to be listening to the “scientists,” but of course, as in Pelletier’s case, the only scientists being listened to are the ones who coincidentally advocate the course of action that expands governmental control. What started out as commonsense notions of “social distancing,” as in, no mosh pits or human centipedes, has transmogrified into “You can’t leave your home.” People are being ticketed and arrested for going outside, walking on a beach, or swimming alone in the ocean. In San Diego, it’s now illegal to sit in your car and watch the sunset. In some cities, you can’t be in your car at all. Or in a park. Or outside a church.
There is no—as in, zero—science behind the notion that we must all be housebound. Indeed, as Ann Coulter tweeted last week, an April 7 paper published by the American Society for Microbiology (authored and edited by seven multi-credentialed scientists from universities in California and Oregon) advances the theory that sunlight is an effective anti-COVID “mitigation strategy” for “infectious agents” that thrive “indoors.” In other words, we should be getting some sunshine. Just going outside for a bit while still observing social distancing is actually beneficial. For us, that is. Not for government overreach.
Vox’s Matthew Yglesias, not even remotely a “right winger,” tweeted on April 15, “I keep reading articles that have headlines like ‘don’t count on warm weather to end coronavirus’ that turn out to be based on studies that say warm weather probably does reduce the spread of the virus.” So even some left-leaners are noticing a problem: Local demagogues and their media lackeys are saying, “Lock yourself in the house; don’t venture outside,” but the science seems to recommend otherwise.
Tell people it’s a good idea to get some sun on their face, and the next thing you know they’ll think they can watch a sunset or worship freely. And we can’t have that, regardless of what the science says.
There was no science behind locking up Justina Pelletier. The BCH doctors were not content to simply render a second opinion. Their opinion had to become law, and Justina had to be sequestered from anyone who felt differently. And the state happily played jailer. In the end, it was not about health or safety, but control.
Justina Pelletier spent almost a year in the psych ward, and sixteen months separated from her family. Then, at age 16, a judge let her go home. Funny enough, it was the same judge who’d signed off on putting her in confinement in the first place. Turned out Justina’s parents weren’t even remotely the “grave danger” to Justina’s health that BCH had claimed. Judge Heavyhand Wackygavel had made an oopsie, and he now declared that Justina was free to go. No harm, no foul. You ain’t sore, are ya?
The Pelletiers sued Boston Children’s Hospital for malpractice. Attorneys for the hospital argued that the doctors had acted in good faith. They sincerely believed that Pelletier’s family was “making” her think she was sick by not contradicting her when she said she was, and by not dismissing the diagnosis from Tufts. Remember, no one ever alleged that the parents were physically abusive. The argument was always, “They’re harming their daughter by fueling her fears about being ill. They’re being overdramatic in their response to her supposed illness, and not positive enough in their attitude.”
In court, the Pelletier family’s attorney presented an email from Christine Mitchell, director of Boston Children’s Hospital’s Office of Ethics, stating that Tufts’ mitochondrial diagnosis was probably correct. So even some people at BCH agreed with Tufts; Justina was caged even though the people caging her weren’t entirely certain she needed caging.
That’s gotta be worth a malpractice judgment, right?
Very funny. A Suffolk County jury took less than six hours to clear the hospital.
Which brings us to the Pelletier case’s most relevant lesson: Suffolk County, Massachusetts, is one of the most leftist locales in the U.S., with only 5.9% registered Republicans. Hillary Clinton took the county by 80% in 2016. Boston is a “sanctuary city,” as are several other cities in Suffolk. Here’s a deep-blue collection of extremists who are as anti-Trump on immigration as possible. “No kids in cages!” “No separating families!”
Yet within this deep-blue county, a prominent hospital “caged” a kid and separated a law-abiding family for over a year. And why? Because the child’s parents were supposedly “being too negative,” and not focusing enough on “positive experiences.”
Funny how leftists never apply that standard to illegals. Every alien who drags a child to the border, falsely claiming to be escaping “genocide” or “death squads,” is perpetrating the exact same psychological torture that Pelletier’s parents were accused of. Surely those illegals and amnesty seekers are traumatizing their children by convincing them that a sudden, violent death is imminent unless entry to the U.S. is granted. Shouldn’t those parents be separated from their children for “focusing on negative aspects and not on positive experiences”? For creating a “pathological feedback loop”?
Of course not. As the Suffolk County jury made clear, only white American parents deserve to be separated from their children for that.
The Suffolk mentality is what’s prompting hundreds of American nanny statists to snitch on their neighbors for jogging outdoors or walking in a park. It’s what’s prompting government officials to single out whites as villains for daring to seek fresh air, as “journalists” declare that whites are the ones most in need of lockdown.
“Science” dictates that middle- and working-class whites must be confined and controlled. Conversely, “science” also dictates that nonwhite prison inmates must be released from confinement and allowed free movement. Quarantining whites cures COVID. Releasing blacks and browns from quarantine also cures COVID.
Welcome to Pelletier Nation, where the only “science” that matters is the one that allows leftist politicians to detain and control a disfavored demographic.
When Justina Pelletier was confined by the state based on cherry-picked “science,” she couldn’t fight back. As a fragile, sickly teenage girl, she had a legitimate excuse.
LIBERALISM, LIKE THE WUHAN VIRUS, WILL NEVER DIE!
New York Times bestselling author and syndicated columnist Ann Coulter is a graduate of Cornell University and the University of Michigan Law School.
Her weekly columns are a regular feature at many conservative news sites.
The media are outraged that President Trump is talking about re-opening the country, following their previous position that he sure was taking his sweet time at opening up the country.
Fortunately, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s death forecasts from the Wuhan coronavirus have shrunk from 1.7 million Americans in mid-March; to 100,000 to 200,000 two weeks ago, provided there were massive suppression efforts; to — most recently — 60,000.
Every week, it seems, we’re another two weeks away from the “apex.”
According to a model recently published in The New York Times, if Trump had issued social distancing guidelines just two weeks earlier — on March 2, rather than March 16 — instead of 60,000 Americans dying from the Chinese coronavirus (projected!), only 6,000 would have died.
If that’s what a two-week quarantine would have done, then how about a four-week quarantine?
By the end of the month, 90% of the country will have been shut down, quarantined and socially distancing for FOUR WEEKS. A majority of Americans have already been under these self-isolation rules for three weeks. (And most of the rest live in rural communities 16 miles from one another.)
Two weeks is the magic number. Test positive for the Wuhan: self-quarantine for two weeks. Come into contact with someone who has it: self-quarantine for two weeks. Traveling from New York, New Jersey or Connecticut: self-quarantine for two weeks.
With cold and flu viruses, people develop symptoms after just five days. But to be extra safe, we’re assuming the Wuhan virus can be transmitted for a full two weeks after contact.
After two weeks, you’re either sick or the infection has passed through you with no symptoms.
Again: It’s been three. Does social distancing work or doesn’t it?
After four weeks of self-isolation, won’t 90% of the country be Wuhan-free? Or are we in a sci-fi movie with a virus that can live forever without a host?
For the tiny percentage of the country not in self-isolation for the past three weeks, either because they are essential workers or because they are screw-offs, let’s add them to the “vulnerable” list. Everyone take special precautions around doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and people who don’t follow orders — just as we do around the elderly and immunocompromised.
By May 1, even most of the slackers will have worked through the Wuhan. There haven’t been any large gatherings for them to attend, and almost everyone else has been staying 6 feet away from them. They’ve had a month to infect one another and either live or die.
In any event, unless all the claims about social distancing are nonsense, then a ONE-MONTH nationwide quarantine should have killed off the Wuhan in 90% of us, allowing a return to mostly normal life. (It goes without saying that Trump’s travel bans will have to remain in place.)
I notice that the same people telling Americans they must remain at home indefinitely were indignant about closing bathhouses in response to the AIDS epidemic. Back then, the media and all gays except Randy Shilts said: How dare you ask us to shut down the bathhouses! They’re part of gay culture. It would be like asking Catholics to stop visiting the Sistine Chapel!
But putting the entire country under stay-at-home orders? No problem.
Another liberal about-face since the AIDS era gives me an idea for how to re-open the country.
Liberals are furious with Trump for expressing optimism about the experimental drug hydroxychloroquine. When it came to AIDS, the gay community’s successful campaign to compel the FDA to allow “compassionate” use of unapproved drugs was a civil rights milestone on the order of Selma.
In a 1990 editorial, for example, The New York Times praised the “educated and articulate” gay spokesmen for bringing about “changes in the traditional methods of testing drugs,” adding that the new procedures were “a compassionate response to AIDS sufferers.”
By contrast, today the media are absolutely ghoulish in their hope for hydroxychloroquine to fail. The drug is approved for malaria patients, so it’s “safe”; it’s simply not approved specifically to treat the Chinese virus.
The reason for the media’s hostility to hydroxychloroquine is obvious: Trump expressed enthusiasm for the treatment, so liberals are required to take the opposite position.
It’s just like the Democrats’ recent infatuation with open borders. Until Trump, nearly every Democrat was for — or claimed to be for — border security, deporting criminal aliens and ending the anchor baby scam.
But as the Times‘ Frank Bruni said, Democrats are “defining themselves as antonyms to Trump.” Why else, he wondered, would Democrats push policies like open borders, “which won’t go down well with many of the voters the party needs”?
Perhaps we could use this liberal neurosis to our advantage. To re-open the country, we need Trump to come out against it.
WHO DIRECTS THE JOE BIDEN SHOW?
Al Benson, Jr., is the Editor of the Copperhead Chronicle.
In addition to writing for Southern Patriot and other publications, he is a member of the Confederate Society of America and the League of the South.
Well, Comrade Obama finally endorsed Sleepy Joe Biden for president. Better late than never I guess. He said Biden was the most “progressive candidate.” Let us not kid ourselves, or anyone else. The term Progressive means socialist–and in todays stifling political climate, socialist means communist.
Let us also no kid ourselves that Joe Biden will really be the president. Oh, he may hold the office but you have to know he won’t be calling the shots. Often Biden can barely string two sentences together without a major gaffe. Even the CNN propagandists have looked askance at some of what he has said. Can anyone in his right mind believe Biden will be the real president?
Hardly! He will be little more than a figurehead. Others behind the scenes will put their words in his mouth and hope they come back out making some sort of socialist sense. Make no mistake. Someone behind the curtain will move their Marxist agenda, hopefully using Biden as the front man.
This is how the game will be played. If he gets to the point where all he can do is babble, then “his” agenda will be presented to the public in written form or presented by some mouthpiece pretending to speak for him, but really speaking for those leftist forces that use Biden as their figurehead president.
It will be pure political theater, folks, but beware of, and be ready to oppose the far-left schemes that will be presented through it. I wonder, at this point, who Biden will be told to name as his vice-president. That may have a lot to do with how this game is played.
FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK
Dr. Ed is a pastor, college president, historian, the author of over 30 books, an in-demand public speaker, and the host of three radio shows.
He is an active lobbyist, tirelessly petitioning city, county, state, and federal officials on behalf of our Southern monuments and heritage.
He started Dixie Heritage in March of 2015.
So many folks are using the Corona Virus as their excuse to NOT be doing the things that they know that they should be doing. On this week’s Old Camp Meeting Time radio show I address that with a sermon I preached on Sunday from James 4:17, “…to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not.”
I also finish up my third of three interviews with Mary Fahl on this week’s Dixie Heritage Show. Mary was an absolute delight to talk to. Even when the interview was over we continued to chat for the better part of the day. If you have not listened to these three interviews you’ll want to go back and do so.
And the May / June issue of The Barnes Review magazine started showing up in mailboxes this week. Paul Angel and I talk about it on this week’s TBR History Hour.
Mother’s Day is this weekend. So be sure to make your way to your local WalMart and pick up something off the empty shelf. If that fails, have a 7-Eleven SLURPEE delivered to your wife or mother. Yeah, thats a thing. I actually got a text message from 7-Eleven the other day suggesting that I order a SLURPEE on their app and that they have free delivery. Nothing says “I love you Mom” like a delivery from 7-Eleven.
Just remember, even though she is your mother, especially because she is your mother, “social distancing” guidelines apply. be sure to follow all CDC and Gubernatorial decrees this Mother’s Day!
Has it ever dawned on you that you can’t say “gubernatorial” without saying “Guber”? Is your Governor a “Goober”?
This week we joined First Freedom in sending a letter to President Trump asking him to advocate for immunity from future lawsuits for churches and charities. Because we all know its only a matter of time, as churches and charities start reopening, before the family of someone who dies of Covid-19 sues a church, or food pantry, or private school, or homeless shelter, or a museum, or even their UDC chapter, etc. claiming that said organization or church did not do everything possible to prevent the spread of the pandemic. We have a courier who will be visiting the White House and placing this letter directly into the President’s hand. So we know he will actually be receiving it. Pray that the President will carry this football. The “end zone” on this one is Congress which means Chuckie and Babs (Pelosi) will have to actually be, well, human.
Things are starting to look up. But the swamp creatures are gonna put up a fight. Which tells me the big battle is about to begin. What form will that take? I do not know. But prayerfully, we will be ready for it. And we pray that you will be standing with us and we with you.
God will Vindicate!
Until Next Week,
