A staggering partial list of Democrats’ flagrant corruption in the 2020 election

“In state after state, Democrats put the lie to the claim that America had a “free and fair” election last year. Accordingly, for the first time in at least modern history, three-quarters of the opposition party remains convinced that the chief White House occupant isn’t really the president.”  

(Raymond Wolf – LifeSiteNews)  Though Joe Biden was officially sworn in and is already hard at work on a hard-left reset of American society, he isn’t a duly elected president any more than he was last week. Democrats may have gone through the motions, but the inauguration ceremony on Wednesday didn’t do anything to resolve their wide-ranging crimes that corrupted last year’s presidential race.

Pastor John MacArthur Calls Out Ravi Zacharias and Carl Lentz as ‘Phoneys’

“We’re seeing one after another after another after another dead ones and alive ones, this dead apologist had a deviant sex life. This cool dude, rock and roll pastor, was immoral with multiple women for years and years.”

(Protestia)  Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, called out deceased and disgraced renown apologist Ravi Zacharias and disgraced ex-Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz during a January 17th sermon. Continue reading

Beth Moore Says God is Judging His People Because They ‘Sinned Grievously’ By Supporting Trump

“God is judging the Church for sinning “grievously” by “wedding evangelicalism to a political party.” Because, it wasn’t about protecting religious freedom — that we all know is now gone. It wasn’t about protecting unborn life — that we now know will be in greater danger. It wasn’t about protecting the consciences of people who don’t want to be forced to deny reality when it comes to sex and gender.”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Beth Moore is the Southern Baptist Convention’s top lady-preacher and prime merry-andrew of Evangelicalism. Beth Moore, like her spiritual brother, Russell Moore (no relation), has lead the charge in opposing conservative policies in the political realm, primarily railing against the evil orange man, daily.

Let the Senate’s Show Trial Begin

“Despite more than 200,000 tips, the most wide-ranging investigation in Justice Department history, according to the acting attorney general, has yet to find any evidence of an orchestrated insurrection—just a lot of random troublemakers.” 

(Julie Kelly – American Greatness)  So much for unity.

During her first softball briefing, Jen Psaki, Joe Biden’s press secretary, assured America that the U.S. Senate can “multi-task” by conducting its routine business and proceeding with a trial against former President Donald Trump at the same time. “[Biden’s] gonna leave the mechanics, the timing, the specifics of how Congress moves forward on impeachment to them,” the ex-Obama staffer told a Fox News reporter Wednesday.

Evangelical Leaders Rejoice in Communist Takeover of America

“The ceremony, the poetry, the pageantry, the prayer, and the peace came from some of the most God-hating people in the world — including the disgusting and filthy, foul-mouthed musician, Lady Gaga.”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  January 20, 2021 marked the death of America as we know it. The funeral service, with America’s new Chinese Communist Party-controlled priest, Joe Biden, preaching the service, was held in honor of America’s history as Biden announced his intentions to move the country further away from its founding Judeo-Christian roots and bury her alongside dead bodies of Western Civilization, ingenuity, and superiority. Continue reading

Thousands Call for Franklin Graham to Be Fired Over His Support of Trump

(Tré Goins-Phillips – Faithwire)  More than 22,000 people have signed a petition calling for the Rev. Franklin Graham to be fired from his leading roles at the Christian humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse as well as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association because of his support for former President Donald Trump.

The Faithful America petition rebuked Graham for his endorsement of Trump’s “deadly presidency” and described the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham as a “blasphemous preacher.” Continue reading

Anti-Trump Reprisals

“Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), likely the incoming chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, wants to weaponize the IRS against nonprofit groups that organized the “Save America” pep rally that took place January 6. It was only a few years ago, by the way, that Lois Lerner of the Obama IRS targeted conservative nonprofits.”

(Matthew Vadum – Frontpage Magazine) As Joe Biden, an illegitimate president, was sworn in at a funereal inauguration ceremony surrounded by thousands of U.S. troops, Democrats were busy plotting and scheming and planning reprisals against Republicans for doing nothing other than supporting his duly elected predecessor. Continue reading

‘In the Strong Name of Our Collective Faith’? Closing of Inauguration Benediction Refuted by Pastor

(Heather Clark – Christian News)  “In the strong name of our collective faith, amen” was how Silvester Beaman of the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Delaware ended his benediction on Wednesday during the Biden-Harris inauguration. His avoidance of using the name of Jesus in the prayer was noted by at least one pastor, who refuted Beaman’s choice of words online.

“It must be said: there is no such name,” wrote Mike Riccardi, the pastor of Local Outreach Ministries at John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. Continue reading

Inauguration Day: Anti-Facists Burn Flags & Vandalize in Portland, Seattle & Denver


…some rioters carried a banner declaring, “We don’t want Biden – we want revenge! For police murders, imperialist wars, and fascist massacres.”

(Jessica McBride – Heavy)  Anti-facist and other far-left groups rioted in multiple American cities on Inauguration Day 2021. In Portland, Oregon, antifa marchers vandalized the Democratic Party offices, according to police and videographers who were at the scene…. Continue reading

Thanks for everything, President Trump Thanks for the balance in my 401(k), tax cuts for the middle class and destroying ISIS

(Howie Carr)  Thank you, Mr. President, for everything you’ve done.

It shouldn’t be ending this way, but I and 74 million other Americans just want to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf over the past four years, actually since you came down the escalator at Trump Tower back in the summer of 2015.

In no particular order:

Thank you for restoring the U.S. as the world’s leading producer of energy – after your predecessor sternly lectured us that we “couldn’t drill our way” out of our dependence on unstable Middle Eastern oil providers. Continue reading

‘The Savior’: Did George Bush Reveal Who Is Ultimately Responsible for Trump’s Defeat?

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  On Wednesday, former President George W. Bush — very much an opponent of former President Donald Trump — reportedly identified “the savior” who may have been ultimately responsible for Trump’s defeat: House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.).

“George Bush said to me today, he said, ‘You know, you’re the savior because if you had not nominated Joe Biden, we would not be having this transfer of power today,’” Clyburn told reporters on a press call. Reporters had asked the whip what he was thinking while Biden took the oath of office. Continue reading

Joe Biden Sworn in as the 46th President. Now Get Ready for the Executive Orders

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  At noon, Joe Biden took the Oath of Office and became the 46th president of the United States.

Biden has promised to be a “president for all Americans” and a uniter, attempting to heal America’s divisions. Yet his policies do not reflect this uniting rhetoric. Biden has staked out radical positions on a host of issues, most notably transgender identity and abortion.

Biden has pledged to spend his first day in office signing executive orders that will erase much of former President Donald Trump’s legacy…. Continue reading

Here We Go: Trump Declassifies ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ Docs on His Way Out the Door

(Paula Bolyard – PJ Media)  On Tuesday afternoon, on his last night in office, President Trump declassified a cache of documents related to the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

“At my request, on December 30, 2020, the Department of Justice provided the White House with a binder of materials related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” Trump said in a statement. “Portions of the documents in the binder have remained classified and have not been released to the Congress or the public.” You can read the document below.

Relying on Lockdowns, Social Distancing, and Masks Isn’t Working to Curb COVID-19

(Doug Badger – Daily Signal)  COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to surge. The seven-day moving average of daily confirmed new cases eclipsed 260,000 on Jan. 9, the highest rate yet recorded. The U.S. is expected to reach the grim milestone of 400,000 COVID-related deaths later this month, around the anniversary of its first confirmed case.

These numbers suggest that the strategy of relying predominantly on social distancinglockdowns, and mask-wearing is not working. We need better interventions. Continue reading

Wow, Politico Is No Longer Covering Up Biden’s Cognitive Decline

(Matt Margolis PJ Media)  On the eve of his inauguration, Politico published an article that contains an anecdote that is actually quite disturbing.

For higher-profile remarks, [Biden would] obsessively rehearse portions until he committed them to memory. And at times through the various iterations of outlining remarks, Biden could grow downright ornery…. Continue reading

Election Lawsuits Move Forward Despite Silencing Crusade

“It’s anyone’s guess as to what the Supreme Court will do over the next several weeks. If the past is prologue, the majority will again shirk their constitutional duties by seeking some procedural excuse rather than consider the overwhelming evidence before the court. The highest court will follow the lower courts’ craven lead.”

(Julie Kelly – American Greatness) As the country looks back at the mayhem that has unfolded over the past few months, one moment stands out: The most consequential event since Election Day—hands down—was the Supreme Court’s rejection of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against four states that helped decide the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. Continue reading

Carlson Explains What Message Dems Are Sending with the Militarization of DC

(Leah Barkoukis – Townhall)  In his opening monologue on Monday, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson said the Democratic Party is using the militarization of the nation’s capital as a clear political weapon.

There will reportedly be more than 26,000 federal troops—something Carlson said “no living American has seen” before.

He used the historical examples of when 13,600 federal troops and the D.C. Army National Guardsmen were sent to Washington by Lyndon Johnson after MLK Jr.’s assassination, and during the Civil War era when there “were fewer federal troops protecting Washington, D.C., than there are right now.” Continue reading

DNI Ratcliffe Drops Bombshell Report, Alleges China Interfered in the 2020 Election

(Collin Rugg – Trending Politics)  According to a bombshell new report dropped by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe, China interfered and “sought to influence” the 2020 presidential election.

One of the most alarming parts in Ratcliffe’s assessment was when he claimed that CIA management pressured lower level analysts to diminish the assessment.

Check out what the EPOCH Times reported: Continue reading

Trump White House Releases Massive List of Accomplishments Media Ignored for Years

(Jonathan Davis – Trending Politics)  People who hated President Donald Trump’s prolific use of Twitter before the speech Commies at Jack Dorsey’s brainchild banned him likely did not appreciate the fact that it was his way of talking directly to the American people without the manipulating filter of the ‘mainstream’ media.

Though he has been silenced, for now, we have no doubt he’ll be back online somewhere, sooner rather than later. In fact, if we were betting individuals, we’d wager he’s already in talks either with an existing platform or in the process of developing his own. Continue reading

Sorry, not sorry: Why the NAR prophets’ apologies for getting things wrong don’t cut it

“With their failed prophecies about Trump’s reelection, NAR prophets have disappointed the people, damaged the reputation of the Church, and have fostered greater suspicion of Christian leadership. YouTube videos mocking all evangelicals because of their failed prophecies have received millions of views, such as this one titled “Evangelicals Freak Out.” The NAR prophets have made it much more difficult for Christians to share the gospel going forward.”

(Holly Pivec & Doug Geivett – Apologies from the many “prophets” of the New Apostolic Reformation who falsely prophesied President Trump’s reelection are pouring in, including apologies from Kris Vallotton, Shawn Bolz, and Jeremiah Johnson. Continue reading

CNN Reporter Suggests Cable Providers Ax Certain Conservative Channels

We inadvertently posted a piece earlier on this subject posted over at Breitbart. It has been deleted.

(Leah Barkoukis – Townhall)  BNN’s Oliver Darcy was quick to support the suggestion by former Facebook security chief Alex Stamos as to how conservative media voices should be dealt with, agreeing that the next target ought to be the cable providers themselves.

Quoting Stamos, who had told CNN’s Brian Stelter, “We are going to have to figure out the OAN and Newsmax problem. These companies have freedom of speech, but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and such bringing them into tens of millions of homes,” Darcy said the providers still haven’t answered questions about why they still support freedom of speech.

Overthrowing America From Within

“The devastation caused from the quarantine of healthy Americans has been far worse than the Wuhan virus.  More than 49 percent of San Francisco’s small businesses are gone forever.  In New York City, the devastation has reached over 60 percent, which is also the statistic for the entire nation. Think of it…60 percent of all small businesses destroyed.  Small businesses are owned by America’s middle class…those who support Donald J. Trump.”

(Kelleigh Nelson – News With Views)  Restrictions of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us. —William O. Douglas

Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order. —John V. Lindsay, Former U.S. Congressman

There is no substitute for a militant freedom.  —President Calvin Coolidge

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. —Thomas Jefferson

Oh yes, the perfect plan, a coup d’état if you please, was hatched and executed with skill by the Chinese, the Democrat Party and a number of Republican comrades.  Do you see it now? Continue reading

Leftist Pastor ‘Getting Off’ the Southern Baptist Convention ‘Bus’ Because it Isn’t Woke Enough

“In the wake of the denomination’s seminary leaders’ recent denunciation of Critical Race Theory, an ideology rooted in Marxist thought, McKissic recently announced that he is pulling his church out of the Southern Baptist Convention….”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Dwight McKissic, a racist, anti-gospel charismatic tongue-babbling black nationalist who masquerades as a shepherd of God’s people has done more to harm the body of Christ than possibly any other Southern Baptist pastor in history…. Continue reading

New Study Concludes Lockdowns Didn’t Help Slow Spread of COVID

“Millions were misled by experts who virtue signaled their way into shaming perfectly healthy people into altering their behavior to extreme degrees for almost a year — and it was all for nothing.”

(Kip Jones – Western Journal)  A new study published prior to the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion, but only widely publicized on Friday, blows up the narrative that locking down healthy people made a difference in mitigating the spread of the coronavirus. Continue reading

Lindsey Graham Releases Transcripts from Russia Probe, FISA Abuse Investigation

“The FISA court was lied to. Exculpatory information was withheld on those being investigated. The investigators, with some notable exceptions, were incredibly biased and used the powers of law enforcement for political purposes….”

(Katie Pavlich – Townhall)  Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham has released eleven transcripts of interviews conducted during his investigation of the origins of Crossfire Hurricane and FISA abuse. Continue reading
