Impeachment Was the Epitome of Hypocrisy

Just when I had concluded that Congress couldn’t do anything more hypocritical than what I had already witnessed, they impeached the president…again! Forceful removal from national office is justified, but for many prominent Democrats rather than the president. Let’s review who is really guilty of inciting insurrection.

First, much of President Trump’s rhetoric at the rally on January 6th was unwise in my opinion. But, he never once urged the crowd to do anything illegal and certainly did not suggest engaging in violence or entering the Capitol building. He did not incite insurrection–period. He said, “We’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen.” He did not even organize the rally. It was organized by a non-profit group, Women for America First, and they invited him to speak. Yet, in the impeachment proceedings on Wednesday, the Democrats testified one after another that Trump “planned, organized, and directed the mob to violently storm the Capitol.” Anyone has the right to criticize the president’s words and actions prior to the riot, but no one has the right to blatantly lie about his words and actions. The fact is the votes to impeach were based on lies as was the case for the last impeachment. However, the truth is that several politicians should be removed from office.

Joe Biden said he would like to take Trump behind the gym and “beat the hell out of him.” Throughout his campaign, his silence regarding the unprecedented violence by radical leftists was his tacit approval and an invitation for the mobs to continue. Many lives were lost.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “I just don’t know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. Maybe there will be.”

Vice President Elect Kamala Harris urged that, “Protesters should not let up.”

Congresswoman Maxine Waters urged her followers, “If you see anybody from (Trump’s) cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Senator Cory Booker said he wanted to punch the president.

Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley said of Black Lives Matter, “There needs to be unrest in the streets.”

In large measure, Democratic rhetoric of this kind has incited radical leftists to conduct criminal insurrections across America.

In 2011, thousands of Democrat anarchists stormed the Wisconsin Capitol and occupied it for two weeks. The Democrat response: “This is what democracy looks like.”

In 2016, hundreds of BLM activists blocked interstate highways and violently accosted police, killing several. The Democrat response: “To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible.”

In 2018, a mob stormed the Supreme Court building and pounded on the door yelling threats. The Democrat response: “It’s understandable.”

Last summer, in major cities across the country, groups of leftists marched in streets, set buildings on fire, looted businesses, assaulted innocent bystanders and police, killing several. The Democrat response: “These are mostly peaceful protests.”

Later, mobs seized several blocks of downtown Seattle for days declaring it an autonomous zone of self government. The Democrat response: “It’s a block party atmosphere.”

In August, a crazed mob attacked several prominent Republicans, including Senator Rand Paul, departing late night from the Republican Convention. DC police were told to stand down. The Democrat response: Silence.

Ignoring their own guilt, this Democratic Congress has doubled the number of impeachments in our nation’s history, this time without even a traditional inquiry and investigation. And only for political gain. The Democrats’ appeal for unity is totally hollow.

Congressional Objections to the Electoral College Are Necessary

Trump-Biden Election Integrity

Every American should be appalled and ashamed of the 2020 election. Regardless of our opinions of the presidential candidates, we must recognize the suspicions of an election fraught with bogus vote counting, disregard for law and policy, unqualified voters, questionable voting machines, and unprecedented election interference by mainstream media. If there were ever a reason for congressional intervention into the election process, this is it.

Let’s face it, we are beyond any real potential for overturning presidential election results. Joe Biden will almost certainly be our next president. However, after all the massive, but unsuccessful, efforts to challenge the veracity of the election, the fact remains that we still have a broken election system. It’s hard to come to grips with the truth that the greatest democratic republic in the world just held an election that looked more like that of a corrupt third-world nation. For that reason, Congress should demand an emergency audit of the 2020 election. That audit should result in sweeping changes to our future election process.

Those dozen or so senators and around 150 representatives who have indicated they will vote against the counting of electoral votes this week know it will not overturn the votes. They are just calling attention to the sham of an election as a last ditch effort to acknowledge the lack of integrity in the whole process and force some corrective action. Every American should demand the same and applaud the boldness.

Many states, especially the swing states, must clean up their act regarding election fraud. State legislatures must take charge and hold their governors and secretaries of state accountable for irregularities. Redundancy and oversight failures must be corrected. Mainstream news media’s extreme bias favoring liberal candidates and platforms must be called out by appropriate political and regulatory agencies. This is what an emergency congressional audit should do before January 20th.

When there is a serious national problem that threatens our democracy, the Congress should act immediately. A polite, pro forma validation of the electoral votes is not what this country needs. We need a high-level, bipartisan, intensive examination of all the accusations of fraud that would exceed by far the efforts of the president’s legal team. This should be accomplished before January 20th to assure the public that the irregularities, although serious, are being dealt with and are not of the magnitude that would have reversed the outcome of the election.

That emergency audit is the hope of the senators and representative who will challenge the electoral count. They are acting within their constitutional rights and should not be harassed for protecting the integrity of our elections. They deserve our support no matter which side of the aisle we favor.

Manuscript Is Done! Now Join Me for a Special Journey

The Bible-based novel, Daniel: Prophet at the King’s Command, is in publication

I have been waiting for a long time to share some exciting news. I have completed my Bible-based novel about the life of the prophet Daniel. It has been publisher-edited and is currently in the creative design phase. The release is scheduled for March, 2021. Now for the first time in over four years of blogging, I’m going to ask for a big favor from you.

The novel’s full title is, Daniel: Prophet at the King’s Command. I began research and writing on this book about four years ago after being immersed for several months in teaching the Bible book of Daniel in my church. The extensive biblical and secular history research and writing took about three years (I had many other responsibilities and obligations going on during this period). Proposals to literary agents and publishers took a year until Ambassador International publishing house bravely took me on. Ambassador International is a Christian publishing company that releases about 50 books per year.

The novel is the story of the prophet’s miraculous life from innocent Hebrew boy to highest official for the king of pagan Babylonia. The gripping drama of competing loyalties and courage in adversity is intertwined with end-times prophecies impacting us today. It is also a study of leadership and endurance in troubled times like we are experiencing at present.

Several prominent authors have read the manuscript and have provided endorsements including this one:

“…A spellbinding story with many great lessons of courageous leadership. Every few years, a particular Bible-based novel commands the attention of the Christian world. This is it for this decade.
     Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, national television personality, New York Times Best-selling author

The joys and frustrations of writing a book are endless. If you have never written and published a book, you would be amazed at what is involved–the work, the thrills, and the disappointments. I invite you to peek inside the world of writing and publishing. I will show you how Daniel came alive on the pages of the manuscript, then what it took to get published. It will be fun and informative.

For the next four months, I will be emailing a monthly short newsletter (three minutes reading time) with highlights of what is going on leading up to publication in March. Then I will supplement that with weekly blog posts or videos taking no more than three minutes of your time. These posts will relay progress and events of the home-stretch toward the book’s release. That is three minutes once each week and another three minutes once each month. I promise to keep it interesting and amusing.

To accompany me on this journey and ensure you receive these emails and posts, please take two easy and quick subscription actions. Doing these two things will generate only one weekly email and one monthly email informing you of post or newsletter availability. Again, I promise you this is all you will receive from me. I will NOT stuff your inbox.

As an appreciation gift for subscribing, I will send you my intriguing short study, Body, Soul, and Spirit. This is an enlightening look at how the body, soul, and spirit interact every day of our lives to make us who we are. It is a summary of my personal research and study into this area. Christians too often take these three components of our humanity for granted. But the Bible gives us clear insight into our three distinct determiners of everything that happens minute-by-minute in our lives. Don’t miss this intriguing read that will change the way you think about how you were created.

Please don’t wait until later. Subscribe now to these two opportunities for a delightful journey. You can always opt out later.

Every time you share is an opportunity for your friends to benefit from God’s work through the book and its accompanying processes.

Thank you so much for your assistance and support of this book project which I believe will make a difference in many people’s lives.

America Must Fix Its Voting System

Mailed ballots, voting machine failures, software corruption, illegal votes, uncounted votes, long lines, denied oversight, trashed ballots, and delayed vote counting. How can America lead the world in technology and have a third-world voting system? Let’s look at what must change before 2024.

Although Giuliani’s team is not likely to get the presidential election reversed (but it’s getting really interesting), what they are finding should embarrass every American voter–Democrat and Republican. Why are election credibility and confidence at an all time low? Technology has enhanced much of our voting process, but we are still conducting our elections with relatively little change from a century ago. In this day when we can securely order anything we want on our computer or phone and get it in a day or two, why do we drive somewhere, stand in long lines, vote on strange, vulnerable machines, and wait perhaps weeks for questionable results? Hopefully, this is the year that brings all the vulnerabilities and corruption to surface.

No sane person would consider me qualified to resolve this complex problem. But it doesn’t take a genius to see how abysmal our election process is and what seems like the obvious fix. Over 80% of American adults use computers regularly. Probably another 10% can use them successfully if necessary. So, let’s say 90% of registered voters could do all of their voting online. Certainly, hardware and software sophisticated enough to securely and accurately process 150 million votes could be developed.

Congress should appropriate money as soon as possible to contract with prominent hardware and software companies to build a national voting system with sufficient security and redundancy to accommodate local, state, and national elections. This could be developed in highly classified environs like the development of secret weapons and intelligence systems to avoid any potential for compromise by foreign or domestic enemies. After roll-out of the platforms, everyone qualified to vote would have to re-register, and their secure information would be entered into the system. This would purge the rolls and create a fresh start. Then, voters would have to re-register every year thereafter in order to keep the rolls updated. No annual registration, no vote.

Each state would have its own separate access to the system for its local and state elections. The presidential election would continue to be based on each state’s election policies, but would use the technology of the national system. The votes of individual voters would be immediately matched with the the state and national databases to ensure only one ballot per person is counted.

Voters would have one week leading up to election day to vote to allow for sickness, travel, etc. No mail-in or absentee ballots would be necessary, since voting would not be restricted to location. Voters could log on to their voter website any time 24/7 for their personalized ballot. A unique ID and foolproof password would be required for each voter. These would be randomly generated by the system shortly before the voting. They would have to match the system’s record in its database. The system would accept no votes after the state’s election day closing time.

On election night after all votes are in, the system would tally the millions of votes in a matter of minutes for all levels of the election, and results would be known by the entire nation by bedtime on the east coast. Immediate statistical analysis would be available for the media pundits. The analytics would be almost unlimited as to how people voted collectively. All this and not one finger would have to touch ballots. No poll workers would be needed except for a few to assist the computer challenged.

That 10% or so who would need help with their voting could go to a few sparsely manned polls in each community for assistance. They would be helped through the same process that everyone else was using but on a secure touch-screen computer.

Will America do this or something similar? Or will we find ourselves in the same mess in 2024? It’s past time for our country to bring our elections into the 21st century. I plan to “share” this post with my Congressman and Senators and hope you will do the same.
