What has the Holiday Season become to many of the people who lead us? Consider this Bible passage.
John 3:19-21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
19 This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
While the rest of us celebrate the Holidays and want to spend our time with family and friends, are our leaders busying themselves doing things they don’t want us to know about?
- Why impeach President Donald Trump now, just before Christmas? Who has time to figure out why Trump is being impeached? Do you have time to Read the Articles of Impeachment Against President Trump (nytimes.com) (Download full PDF). Maybe not, but you could read President Donald Trump’s letter. It is shorter and more entertaining.
- Why have the House and the Senate passed a $1.4 trillion spending package now, Senate OKs spending bills to avoid government shutdown, sending them to Trump’s desk (foxnews.com)? Do you know what is in that package? Have you heard any debates about it? Are the news shows suppose to focus on an impeachment sham or how Congress is spending our money? Which is actually more important?
- Did you know that head judge of the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISC) Court finally had something to say? Probably not, Network BLACKOUT: Top FISA Judge Accuses FBI Lawyer of Criminal Act (newsbusters.org). The lady wrote an order. Did she really want us to read it?
This order responds to reports that personnel of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provided false information to the National Security Division (NSD) of the Department of Justice, and withheld material information from NSD which was detrimental to the FBI’s case, in connection with four applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) for authority to conduct electronic surveillance of a U.S. citizen named Carter W. Page. When FBI personnel mislead NSD in the ways described above, they equally mislead the FISC. (continued here)
- Did you know about a multistate pact to increase the tax on gasoline so big spenders can waste more money, Multistate pact that includes Maryland could curb transportation carbon emissions (baltimoresun.com)? Do these people know what they are doing? Are they working in our best interests or their own. Take a good look at the mess in California. Then rest assured. Virginia is part of this boondoggle too.
What else is happening we need to know about? Don’t you wish the news media would do its job and help us to find out? Unfortunately, most news outlets belong to big corporations. So it is impeachment all the time. Why? Most news outlets are part of the crony capitalist news network. Often, instead of reporting the news, they hide it. How are we suppose to do our civic duty if we don’t know what is going on? We cannot. Therefore, when we vote, we need to ask ourselves? Which candidate is most likely to do his deeds in the light?
