From Our Founder…
2/11/2020 – Last week was ripe with a number of incredible activities that will leave their marks upon the history of the United States. As usual, a number of our writers and our selection of videos and other recommended articles are designed to help our readers with “digesting” such events. Most Americans saw the events unfold in real time, but given the incredible amount of disinformation, fake news, and false narratives circulating throughout the nation, it is important for citizens to ‘keep their wits about them.”
Last week the United States Senate made a historic decision to honor truth and to uphold the U.S. Constitution by acquitting President Donald Trump of any spurious charges of criminal activity. This was a victory for “We the People” and the American Republic for which it stands. In a similar span of time, President Trump won the Iowa GOP caucus, and as Charlie Kirk remarked, he was the only president to win both the GOP caucus and the broken caucus of the Democrats as the results apparently did not digest well for the Party Elites.
On President Trump delivered an amazing State of the Union message to the nation last Tuesday on the eve of his acquittal. If anyone missed it we have the video link, as well as a link to his address at the annual Prayer Breakfast.
The article lineup this week includes a very insightful article on the impeachment proceedings from a spiritual point of view from former Methodist minister, Susan Schrier Clouse. We also offer a report from Kendra Miller on the State of the Union address by President Trump. My article is on the symbolism behind Mitt Romney’s vote against President Trump and of Nancy Pelosi’s ripping Trump’s SOTU speech in front of millions watching the event. Michael Lewinski, from Indiana takes on Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of the “Chicago suburb” of South Bend, Indiana. Lewinski warns Americans of some serious consequences that would emanate from a Buttigieg presidency.
We also have two contributions from DefCon News. One features the week in review for the Democrats, which was not pretty, from the Iowa meltdown to Nancy’s Pelosi’s tantrum meltdown. The other provides a rundown of the Left’s reaction to President Trump’s acquittal, which delves into an alternative view of the real world.
Next, we feature an article from Megan West, Media Director of My Faith Votes, that was posted on their website in January, but describes an incredible pro-active effort to deal with Planned Parenthood’s killing of the unborn. The article reveals a model of how the Planned Parenthood behemoth can be confronted to challenge their dominion in the nation.
And last, but not least, CSN, was happy to see Rush Limbaugh get the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Last week we announced that Don Rosenberg, Executive editor of CSN’s newsletter, had put together a website and CSN invited those who love Rush Limbaugh to pray for his recovery from lung cancer. You can still sign the card. The website is: https://pray4rush.com/

The Temptation of Team Trump
By Susan Schrier Clouse – February 5, 2020 – Acquittal Day
“Danger, danger, danger,” Jay Sekulow, Trump’s personal attorney, warned during the impeachment trial of the President. Not hyperbole, danger indeed. While President Trump has been acquitted, the danger continues.
House Manager Adam Schiff made multiple offers during the trial to entice the defense to agree to additional witness testimony, particularly Ambassador John Bolton. Each offer appeared on its face to be good and reasonable but each was roundly rejected by the President’s defense team and ultimately by the Senate. As these exchanges continued, and Schiff kept ‘sweetening the pot,’ their rejections strengthened.
The State of Our Union
By Kendra Miller – 2/8/2020
The Democrats were a rather glum-looking bunch during the State of the Union address last Tuesday evening.. They didn’t support the President’s endorsement of the First and Second Amendments. They weren’t happy that unemployment was down; that employment of minorities and younger Americans is up; that the number of illegal aliens crossing the borders has dropped for eight straight months; or that millions were off the rolls for food stamps.
“We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before,” shared the President.
“But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good,” but even this was rejected by the Democrats.
A Tale of Two Traitors
by Dennis Jamison – 2/11/2020
Last week Americans witnessed a number of incredible activities that will leave their respective marks upon history. Most Americans saw the events unfold in real-time, but given the extensive amount of “fake news,” disinformation, and misinformation circulating around the nation, it is important for citizens to ‘keep their wits about them.” Out of all the various actions, reactions, and pre-planned or staged political events, and the pre-packaged propaganda, two events stood out strongly. The actions of two individuals were dramatic, yet extremely symbolic.
Most Americans who were paying attention to national news, saw Senator Mitt Romney of Utah vote to convict President Trump, and most citizens saw Nancy Pelosi rip up a copy of the State of the Union speech. Both actions received respectful ovations from the Democrats. Despite no proof of the charges of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” Romney cast a vote as the only Republican to vote to impeach a member of his own political party. This was the first time in history that it happened. It was not just a highly controversial act; it was more an act of loyalty to the Never Trumpers – just ask William Kristol. This action shows Romney is loyal to the donor class who hate Trump. It was also highly symbolic in that it reveals loyalty to partisan politics rather than the overall well-being of the Republic.

Pete Buttigieg would halt the construction of our border wall. One has to wonder whether the former Indiana Mayor would sign the New Way Forward act if he was elected, along with a Democratic Senate, when the bill was on his desk. You don’t know about this new immigration bill.
Tucker Carlson recently reported on a bill supported by the Progressive Socialist/Communist Democrats. He said, “The New Way Forward act is the most radical single piece of legislation we’ve seen proposed in this country. It makes the Green New Deal look like the status quo.”
The bill says: “Convictions…should not lead to deportation.” It targets felony convictions and aggravated felonies. Carlson said, “Moral turpitude is a vile, depraved act, like molesting a child. Under the New Way Forward Act, crimes of ‘moral turpitude’ are eliminated entirely as a justification for deportation. And the category of ‘aggravated felony’ gets circumscribed too.
Trump Acquitted! Democrats’ Bad Week Gets Worse

Last Monday, the Democratic caucuses in Iowa were a catastrophe and the party ended up with Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg as their frontrunners. Tuesday, President Trump’s SOTU address annihilated Democrats and Nancy Pelosi embarrassed herself in front of the whole world. Wednesday, the Democrats’ sham impeachment came crashing down when the President was overwhelmingly acquitted by the Senate.
Let’s Enjoy Some Liberal Reactions to Trump’s Acquittal

Not that there was ever any doubt that the democrats’ nonexistent impeachment case was going to fail, but President Trump was overwhelmingly acquitted of both articles by the Senate Wednesday. Because the entire impeachment/coup effort was about democrats being sore losers, losing once again has brought out the hysterics. The initial reaction from the left is a collective: “wah, not fair, everyone can f*ck off.” Did you expect anything less? Let’s enjoy the waterfall of liberal tears…
He started a church on the steps of Planned Parenthood
By Megan West Media Director My Faith Votes JANUARY 22, 2020
Pastor Ken Peters was faithfully leading his small church in Washington’s northeast city of Spokane when a guest preacher’s Sunday sermon grabbed his heart and prompted an unexpected response. That providential moment led to the creation of “The Church at Planned Parenthood” (TCAPP), a monthly gathering of Christians from various churches to worship God, boldly preach the Gospel message, and to spend time in corporate prayer repenting for this nation and the church’s role in the abortion holocaust…all while standing together outside a Planned Parenthood clinic.
I spoke with Pastor Ken to learn more about the story of TCAPP and to understand the spiritual implications that the unforeseen church plant is now having nationwide. Here is an edited transcript of our conversation…
Pray for Rush
Dear Lord of Mercy and Father of Comfort,
You are the one I turn to for help in moments of weakness and times of need. I ask you to be with your servant, Rush Limbaugh, in this illness. Psalm 107:20 says that you send out your Word and heal. So then, please send your healing Word to him in his time of need. In the name of Jesus, drive out all infirmity and sickness from his body.
Dear Lord, I ask you to turn this weakness into strength, this suffering into compassion, sorrow into joy, and pain into comfort for others. May your servant trust in your goodness and hope in your faithfulness, even in the middle of this suffering. Let him be filled with patience and joy in your presence as he waits for your healing touch.
