After the acquittal: Fight like heaven

The second acquittal of President Donald Trump on Feb. 13 isn’t merely a just verdict, but the whole sick charade exposes the unfair, unjust, unconstitutional, anti-American Democrat politicians.

President Donald Trump has been acquitted — because he was innocent of the false charge. All 50 unfair, unjust, unconstitutional, tyrannical Democrat U.S. senators (including California’s Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla) and 7 RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) voted to let Congress “impeach” any private citizen and criminalize free speech.

Fortunately, there weren’t the 67 votes the Constitution requires to convict. The 7 unconstitutional RINOs: Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

Stop and realize Trump had to be acquitted. Because our 5th and 14th Amendments require due process. Yet the Democrat prosecutors manufactured and manipulated evidence, and hid exculpatory evidence favorable to the defendant. What’s more, they relied on hearsay and speculation as they feverishly tried to create an unjust precedent of guilt by association.

What’s it really all about? Democrats want to ban speech and candidates they don’t like. They’re part of the oligarch (rule by the few) of corrupt tyrants who say, “Free speech for me, but not for thee.”

Remember, falsehoods are harmful, but false accusations in law enforcement and our judicial system are exceedingly dangerous. Ever heard of a false conviction? It’s a big sin, which is why Creator God repeatedly commands in the Bible“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

Apply this to the Democrat majority in Congress, which has publicly blamed President Trump for the deaths of seven people in January. But that’s being a false witness.

Here are the facts we know about the seven who died:

1. Ashli Babbitt (shot dead by yet-to-be-named Capitol police officer)
2. Ben Philips (stroke)
3. Kevin Greeson (heart attack)
4. Rosanne Boyland (unknown/”collapsed”) Source 1 | Source 2
5. Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick (unknown/autopsy not released/no evidence of blunt force trauma/cause of death might have been pepper spray from other police officer or preexisting medical condition)
Source 1 | Source 2 | Source 3
6. Capitol police officer Howard Liebengood (committed suicide Jan. 9)
7. Washington, D.C. police officer Jeffrey Smith (committed suicide Jan. 15)

The evidence shows that one Trump supporter was killed by a pistol-waving Capitol police officer; three Trump supporters and another Capitol police officer collapsed from stroke, heart attack, or unknown causes; and two other police officers committed suicide days later. President Trump did not murder, kill, or cause the deaths of any of these people. If he had, he would have already been charged by law enforcement authorities, but they can’t because there’s no reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

Exemplifying the hypocrisy of the Democrats in their unconstitutional attack on the free speech of Donald Trump is former California U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, who publicly joked about her desire to kill Donald Trump, strongly supported BLM riots, and even helped violent rioters get out of jail to return to the streets.

What can we conclude? Because of the godless government schools, which dumb-down children, the USA is no longer a republic based on written laws. The domestic enemies of the written Constitution are the communist-type Democrat politicians plus RINO “Republicans” that fear man, so they betray their oaths to “support and defend” and “bear true faith and allegiance to” the Constitution.

Let 2021 be the year for professing Christians and pastors and patriotic conservatives to stop making excuses why they won’t love Jesus or people all the time and everywhere, and get out of their comfort zones and prioritize pursuing moral, constitutional government in our land for the benefit of all.

Remember, neither freedom of speech nor freedom of religion come from Creator God, but from good government that actually protects it. Yet our bad government has dramatically trampled your basic freedoms, not just the last 11 months, but incrementally, since 1932 when FDR was elected U.S. president, and since 1959 in California when Democrats captured both houses of the State Legislature.

So, instead of “fighting like hell,” I implore you to fight like heaven, with the peaceful values of Jesus Christ, who hates political corruption and false witness and all sins, and loves to forgive those who truly repent.

Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Jesus Christ in Matthew 6:10

Overcoming political depression

If you’re a conservative or a Christian, you’re probably politically depressed right now. I’ve suffered from bouts of depression both this week and last, not because I put my trust in man, but because our constitutional republic is falling apart.

Yet, as a wanna-be-disciple of Jesus Christ, I don’t want my depression to last long. No, I want to overcome depression by a) realizing I choose my attitude, b) changing my expectations, and c) reclaiming a Biblical worldview.

My attitude is my choice

I must ask myself, “Am I unhappy because of my circumstances?” And “Am I unhappy because of other people?” If yes to either, I know I’m a victim of my own wrong thinking. Since even prideful people can train themselves to not depend on losses or other people’s opinions, then I can too. But I want to do better, by agreeing with Jesus Christ that my identity is in Him, and recommitting that I’m willing to suffer and die for Him. And then my cares tend to fade.

Applying this to the new White House occupant, I’m going to test myself whether I spend more time praising Jesus or worrying about Biden & Company. But avoiding worry doesn’t mean I avoid love or work. No, resisting fretting gives me more room in my mind and heart to love Jesus and love people. Saying no to worry actually helps me focus and energizes me to work with more urgency, insight, and creativity to defeat the New Communism that’s invaded the USA.

Changing my expectations

It’s a fact that we get the government we deserve. Because We the People ARE the government, and we elect “representatives” to work for us. And Americans have elected some secretaries of states and some county registrars of voters who engage in the unconstitutional, unfair, traitorous practice of election fraud.

We get the government we deserve because people who know what’s good, true, and right aren’t the authorities and gatekeepers that love their fellow man. Remember the biblical truism “You reap what you sow”? Most of America is sowing evil (putting their kids in government schools, seeking comfort at all costs, not loving one’s fellow man, worshiping feelings, and pursuing significance apart from God’s approval).

It’s also a spiritual reality that God is not blessing or protecting America, since His blessing is conditional. Creator God will not bless disobedience. And Americans are sinning against God big-time!

Another truth I must acknowledge is that Democrat politicians are professional liars. Therefore, we must not believe what they say, but watch what they do. I’m glad conservatives are transferring to alternative social media so they can expose these charlatans without having their accounts canceled.

Unfortunately, this unconstitutional “cancel culture” of the Democrats has been a long time coming. It’s a mark of Communism — which is merely totalitarianism disguised as populism — to prohibit dissent. That’s what Big Media does with their one-sided stories, what Big Tech and its Leftist allies are doing to “cancel” conservative voices, and what Biden & Company want to do by criminalizing free speech that they deem “political extremism,” “white supremacy,” and “domestic terrorism.” Their subjective definitions of these words and making themselves to be “the law” are a clear and present danger to half of all Americans.

Reclaiming a Biblical worldview

How can I be both positive and realistic? By reading God’s Word and believing it and living it. Here are five biblical truths to which I’m holding tight:

1. “Repent“: From Genesis to Revelation, Creator God wants each one of us to consider where we sin and turn from our wicked ways. In Revelation, Jesus Christ repeatedly calls on people created in His image to repent of their sins: “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”

This means our work of informing people what’s right and what’s wrong will continue to the end. God’s love compels us to continue telling the truth, so that some people, some families, and some societies can change their minds. And Jesus really wants His Church to repent (Revelation 2 and 3). Real repentance would mean many things, including the Church becoming the most powerful force for good government.

2. “Light repels darkness”: The reason for election fraud is true Christians have not been shining their lights to become county registrars of voters and secretaries of states. As a result, people with darkened minds and hardened hearts attain power and become political prostitutes, selling out to the highest bidder. And yes, there are prostitutes in both political parties, as seen by “Republican” pro-lockdown county supervisors and “Republican” pro-impeachment-of-President-Trump members of Congress

The observed fact that light repels darkness means darkness will not depart voluntarily, but must be forcibly overcome. So, this year, biblical pastors and people with strong moral standards must rise up to fight evil with a concerted effort. And in states with Republican-controlled legislatures, ensuring election integrity must be Job #1. This means passing laws requiring strict photo ID and in-person voting and no more machines.

3. “Big lies eventually break down”: Sometimes it takes decades and generations, but lies eventually are rejected because they “just don’t work” for most people. Because a lie cannot survive a trial when the evidence of reality is thrown against it. Remember how Communism broke down in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. On our own soil, for the sake of religious liberty, the Plymouth Colony was founded in 1620. Then, in 1776, our Christian-based American Revolution rejected British tyranny and birthed our nation. So when thoughts and words — not actions — are punished, when property rights and religious freedom are oppressed, and when unnatural “sex” is forced in government schools nationally, reasonable people are going to rise up and reject the lies of the ruling Democrats. Because they want what works. So it’s up to you and me and others like us to constantly show the benefits of doing things God’s way, which is always good, right, and true.

4. “The future of the wicked shall be cut off”: Based on the principle found in Proverbs 37, I predict the ruling Democrats in Washington, D.C. will overdo it, offending most Americans. Control of both Congress and the White House is too tempting for the Radical Left. When they start imposing their lie-based agenda, making average Americans poorer and with fewer constitutional rights, it’s going to rub average persons the wrong way. This year and the 2022 election year, we need to expose the evil excesses of the ruling Democrats. Because the pain of the Democrat regime will be a historic chance for more people to become more conservative and vote better.

5. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”: Based on this dependable, biblical truth. I want to sincerely submit to Jesus as my King to obey, whether a Democrat or Republican is in the White House. When loyal to King Jesus, the Savior of the world, I can be a faithful soldier who shines my light boldly, without fear of suffering or death. And I eagerly want to take more territory for Jesus Christ’s kingdom values!

My friend, I hope this has helped you think, have greater perspective and peace, and regain hope that you can make a positive impact — perhaps even more than ever — here in 2021.

Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.”
