It is imperative that we remember the covenants that our founders made with God during the formation of our country. Liberty, justice, prosperity and the liberation from centuries of domination under the totalitarian rule of kings was all brought about by the hand of God and His blessings over our nation.
The Founding Fathers wrote in Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution a provision providing explicitly for a national capital that would not be part of a state nor treated as a state, but rather a unique enclave under the exclusive authority of Congress — a neutral “district” in which representatives of all the states could meet on an equal footing to conduct the nation’s business.
Last Friday, President Biden signed an Executive Order to create a commission to evaluate the “expansion” of the Supreme Court, a potential first step in adding more justices to the highest court in the US. (Even though he avoided and/or denounced such considerations during his campaign.)
In one of the most alarming and far-reaching acts of the new Congress, the Pelosi Democratic House passed H.R. 1, the most comprehensive legislation on voting since the Voting Rights Act of 1965, on a vote of 220-210. (All Republicans and one Democrat voted against the bill.) After the incredibly problematic election of 2020, this bill codifies processes that led to alleged voter fraud and eviscerates the right of states to control their own elections.
Faith. Family. Freedom.
