January—26 The Poor Man’s Evening Portion

And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.—Acts 4:13.

Oh! for the same grace to rest upon me, as upon those faithful servants of my Lord; that, like them, I may manifest the sweet savour of Jesus’s name, in every place; wherever I am, with whomsoever I converse, in every state and upon every occasion, that all may witness for me, and every thing bear witness to me, that I have been with Jesus! I would entreat thee, my honoured Lord, that I may honour thee so before men, that after my morning visits to thy throne of grace, my mid-day communion, my evening and nightly fellowship, my return to the society of men might so be distinguished as one that had just been with Jesus. And as it might be supposed, if an angel was to come from heaven that had seen thy face, and heard thy voice, and been an eye-witness of thy glory; so, Lord, having by faith enjoyed such views, I might delight to tell, as he would relate to the inhabitants of the earth, the grace, and beauty, and love of Jesus. And surely, Lord, if I have been with thee, and thou with me; if I know any thing of thy grace and salvation; will not, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speak? Shall I not delight to tell every one I meet what my Lord is in himself, and what he is to his people? Shall I not speak with rapture of the glories of thy person, and the infinite value and worth of thy blood and righteousness? Surely in the circle of my acquaintance, I shall be daily speaking of thy grace and salvation, for I know no end thereof. And especially in a day like the present, where the name of my Lord and his cross are banished from all conversation. Oh! that it may be shown that I have been with Jesus, in speaking for Jesus. Yes! thou dear Lord! thy truths I would espouse, thy doctrines profess; salvation alone by thy righteousness and cross would I bear before a whole world, with earnestness and with zeal; and if this brought upon me the laugh and derision, yea, the persecution of the proud, like thy servants of old, “I would rejoice in being counted worthy to suffer shame for thy name.” And chiefly, and above all, let it not only be noticed that I have been with Jesus, in speaking of Christ and for Christ, but let the sweet unction of thy Holy Spirit be so abiding upon me, from continual intercourse and communion with thee, that my whole life and conversation may be such as becometh the gospel of Christ. Oh! for the same blessed effect as Moses, whose face shone when he came down from the holy mount, that every one with whom I have to do may see the light of thy grace, in all my transactions with the world, so shine before men, that they may glorify my Father which is in heaven. Precious Lord! grant me these unanswerable testimonies of vital godliness; then will it be proved in deed and in truth, that, like thy servants of old, I have been with Jesus.[1]

I have begun to give; … begin to possess.” (Deut. 2:31.)

A GREAT deal is said in the Bible about waiting for God. The lesson cannot be too strongly enforced. We easily grow impatient of God’s delays. Much of our trouble in life comes out of our restless, sometimes reckless, haste. We cannot wait for the fruit to ripen, but insist on plucking it while it is green. We cannot wait for the answers to our prayers, although the things we ask for may require long years in their preparation for us. We are exhorted to walk with God; but ofttimes God walks very slowly. But there is another phase of the lesson. God often waits for us.

We fail many times to receive the blessing He has ready for us, because we do not go forward with Him. While we miss much good through not waiting for God, we also miss much through over-waiting. There are times when our strength is to sit still, but there are also times when we are to go forward with a firm step.

There are many Divine promises which are conditioned upon the beginning of some action on our part. When we begin to obey, God will begin to bless us. Great things were promised to Abraham, but not one of them could have been obtained by waiting in Chaldea. He must leave home, friends, and country, and go out into unknown paths and press on in unfaltering obedience in order to receive the promises. The ten lepers were told to show themselves to the priest, and “as they went they were cleansed.” If they had waited to see the cleansing come in their flesh before they would start, they would never have seen it. God was waiting to cleanse them; and the moment their faith began to work, the blessing came.

When the Israelites were shut in by a pursuing army at the Red Sea, they were commanded to “Go forward.” Their duty was no longer one of waiting, but of rising up from bended knees and going forward in the way of heroic faith. They were commanded to show their faith at another time by beginning their march over the Jordan while the river ran to its widest banks. The key to unlock the gate into the Land of Promise they held in their own hands, and the gate would not turn on its hinges until they had approached it and unlocked it. That key was faith. We are set to fight certain battles. We say we can never be victorious; that we never can conquer these enemies; but, as we enter the conflict, One comes and fights by our side, and through Him we are more than conquerors. If we had waited, trembling and fearing, for our Helper to come before we would join the battle, we should have waited in vain. This would have been the over-waiting of unbelief. God is waiting to pour richest blessings upon you. Press forward with bold confidence and take what is yours. “I have begun to give, begin to possess.”—J. R. Miller.[1]

January 26th The D. L. Moody Year Book

Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.—Ephesians 4:3.

ONE of the saddest things in the present day is the division in God’s church. You notice that when the power of God came upon the early church, it was when they were “all of one accord.” I believe the blessing of Pentecost never would have been given but for that spirit of unity. If they had been divided and quarrelling among themselves, do you think the Holy Ghost would have come, and those thousands been converted?

I have noticed in our work, that if we have gone to a town where three churches were united in it, we have had greater blessing than if only one church was in sympathy. And if there have been twelve churches united, the blessing has multiplied fourfold; it has always been in proportion to the spirit of unity that has been manifested. Where there are bickerings and divisions, and where the spirit of unity is absent, there is very little blessing and praise.[1]

It’s ‘Possible’ Some Democrats May Vote To Acquit Trump: Chris Murphy

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said on Saturday that it’s “certainly possible” that some Senate Democrats will vote to acquit President Donald Trump following his impeachment trial, according to Politico .

Report: FBI Agent Commits ‘Suicide’ After Allegedly Discovering Clinton Foundation Looted Billions From Treasury – Big League Politics

Time to add another name to the Clinton kill count?

• Big League Politics

A blockbuster report from True Pundit indicates that an FBI agent who committed “suicide” was involved in uncovering a massive Clinton foundation money-laundering conspiracy that allegedly plundered the U.S. Treasury out of billions.

FBI Special Agent Sal Cincinelli allegedly committed suicide last year in stunning news that shocked his family. Cincinelli was found dead at the Container Bar in Austin, Texas “with at least one gunshot wound” in July 2019. He had quit a life as a high-powered Wall Street trader to join the FBI and help clean up the corrupt financial industry.

Mike Moore, who writes at True Pundit under the alias Thomas Paine, broke the news on his podcast that Cincinelli may have lost his life due to his work investigating the Clintons.

“So we’re finding that deceased top FBI Special Agent Sal Cincinelli was a member of a team that was investigating the Clinton Foundation and had witnessed and investigated the fact that large amounts of money were being moved by Hillary Clinton through the Clinton Foundation, coming in coming out, that trace back to the State Dept. during the time that she was Secretary of State,” Moore said on his podcast.

Paul Washer & The Problem With Cool Church | Bible Thumping Wingnut Network

This post is two parts.

First a blogpost originally posted at “Letter & Liturgy” – HERE . That may leave you with the question who is a real christian and how do I know if I am one?

Followed by part two: A video by Paul Washer explaining how one knows if they are truly a christian.

In my older teens and early 20s I attended a midweek worship service put on by the student  ministry of my hometown’s megachurch. I did so because I was a pastor’s kid at a small, aging, rural Baptist church, and I wanted to go to a church service with people closer to my age. That service was the epitome of “cool church:” Dimmed LEDs, tasteful fog on the stage, Coldplay-esque guitar solos, and a couple hundred teenagers and twentysomethings. It bore little resemblance to the dusty, green-carpeted, and piano-driven service I was at Sunday after unremarkable Sunday. Best of all, the people at the megachurch service were young, attractive, and on Facebook. Cool church felt like it was for me, and for the people I wanted to like me. It was a powerful experience.

This is why I can’t be flippant or judgmental toward the minister and the church featured in this New York Times piece. When the pastor tells the Times reporter, “If we aren’t making people laugh, what are we doing? What is the point?” I know what he means. He’s not being ridiculous. He’s not trying to mock the church or Christianity. He’s asking why church of all places shouldn’t be a place where people feel good. It’s a good question, one that many evangelicals, to their shame, merely scoff at and refuse to answer.

Cool church often begins as an effort to meet a real need. The problem of Christians who turn the cosmos-exploding truths of Christ into pretenses for being sullen, angry, and boring is a problem as old as Jonah. Many traditional evangelical churches are stunningly joyless places. Cool church is never joyless. It cannot be, since the premise of cool church is that we ought to be happy when we’re there. There were legitimate reasons that I wanted, as an 19 year old, to be at a megachurch on Tuesday evenings if I had to be at my Dad’s church on Sunday mornings.

The liturgy of cool church demands that I enjoy it. That’s why the preaching at the midweek service was always 30 minutes or less. Don’t get me wrong: There were faithful preachers in that space, and the Word never returns void. But there’s an internal logic to why the sermons at cool church are almost never longer than a sitcom. Cool church isn’t nearly as concerned with the content of the sermon as it is with the experience itself. Everything flows perfectly at cool church; the music team always picks the right “response” song (the sacrifices of God are a contrite spirit and minor chords), the preacher is always the right amount of funny, and the order of worship never leaves you too little time to hang out in the foyer or too much time with just your thoughts.

Why is this so powerful? At least for me, I think the answer is that cool church let me hang onto my insecurities while I pretended to forget about them. It is almost impossible to overstate how important “cool” is to the typical American teen. It is the end-all, be-all. If you’re cool, nothing else matters; if you’re not, nothing else matters. Compounding this is the fact is that every facet of American culture mythologizes adolescence and connects happiness to perpetuating it as long as possible. The ethos of cool church is a throng of worshipful 18 year olds who don’t particularly care what the New Birth means. What they really want is to know they’re not weird and destined for eternal loneliness. Cool church is powerful because it appears to relieve the tension between the absolute claims of the gospel and the far less cosmic but far more throbbing need we have to be cool kids.

For well-meaning people who really do care about reaching their generation of Jesus, the temptation to grab adolescent souls by their insecurities is severe. For one thing, it sure looks like it works. Cool church will never struggle to draw a crowd. In some places and seasons it’s the only kind of church that can draw one. Secondly, because evangelicals have grown to rely on the vague language of subjective experience rather than the concrete words of Scripture, cool church sounds biblical and healthy. “I had an encounter with Jesus” is an incontestable sentence, right? “I felt God tonight.” Who can say you didn’t? And maybe you did. That’s kind of the point, isn’t it? In the insecure heart, where the promises of Jesus have not taken root and where the temporary and trivial minutia of adolescence have been mistaken for existential crises, forms of Christian worship can be cathartic. And that catharsis is easily confused for faith.

I can vividly remember the circle of friends that I worshiped with at the megachurch service. The vast majority of them no longer attend any church. One of them divorced after only about a year of marriage, and remarried soon after. One now identifies as agnostic. In almost every instance, I only know of the current state of their life because of social media. We fell out of real contact some time ago. The friendships, the worship music, the preaching, and the praying that had felt so real and so forever nearly a decade ago have mostly fallen like seeds on a rocky path. Back then, we would have sworn that it was Jesus we were meeting with every Tuesday night. Sworn.

Ukraine was a virtual gold rush for Washington’s elite and Hunter Biden was one of the first in line

People in Washington, on both sides, saw Ukraine as a means to riches. The Washington crony capitalists saw that the Ukrainian crony capitalists were ready to play ball. (From Zerohedge) Biden’s quest for a Ukrainian windfall took him to one of Ukraine’s most controversial and corrupt associates, Mykola Zlochevsky, who leveraged his post as minister of ecology and natural resources to build a fortune. … …A stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry also was asked to serve as a director but reportedly declined and warned Hunter Biden not to do it; Biden didn’t listen.

A Letter From the American Forefathers: We Warned You! | Sons of Liberty Media

“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” –President Thomas Jefferson

Let me ask you a sincere question? Do you really believe that if people really knew the Word of God that they would tolerate the hirelings (John 10:12) of the day to continuously spew out their heresies?

Scripture is clear: 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” Over and over again scripture warns us:

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Jude 3, 4

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 1 Timothy 4:1-2

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” -Galatians 1:8

And why? “But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.” -Philippians 1:17

For Paul knew that we “are bought with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Let me ask you another sincere question? Do you really believe that if the people really knew the US Constitution that they would allow corrupt politicians to continuously spew out their corruptions as well as evade responsibility when it comes to holding them to the consequence of their scandals (Article 1, Section 3, Clause 7)?

As Abraham Lincoln rightly stated, “We are not called upon to overthrow the US Constitution, but we are called upon to overthrow the men that pervert that Constitution.”

Now, with this said, I recently saw a post that headlines read, “An Open Letter to the American People from the Forefathers.”

It goes as follows…

“We warned you of the dangers of excessive taxation. Now you labor nearly 6 months of the year to pay taxes at all levels as your economy suffocates under this self inflicted burden (Numbers 23:23).”


“We warned you of foreign entanglements. Now thousands of men and woman suffer and die on the behalf of the military Industrial Complex and Special Interests groups (Amos 4:10).”

The American Empire: 737 Military Bases in 148 Countries – There are 196 Countries -Did You Know About This?

“We warned you of political parties. Now you have a two party system working hand in glove to conspire against the American people plundering you while politicians pretend to oppose each other (Mark 3:25).”

George Washington Warned of The Party Spirit: Democrats vs. Republicans is A Political Language Devised to Divide The American People!

We warned you of the importance of an honest, independent and unbiased media according to Law (Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 25:1). Now your centralized “Mainstream Media” is inundating Americans with a continued barrage of propaganda, distortions and omissions.

“We warned you to keep your nation sovereign and independent. Now your representatives have created, out of World War 2, the United Nations. Now you are being corralled and forced to submit to the United Nations all the while your borders are deliberately left open to endless illegal immigration (Deuteronomy 28:43).”


“We warned you to be distrustful of government. But you drank in the kool-aide, their sugarcoated falsehoods of ambitious politicians and now most no longer know who to trust or what it is that they are to believe (Luke 22:48).”

The American Politician: Yes, We Are Corrupt!


“We warned you to obey the US Constitution because power corrupts. Now a secretive government can spy on you and detain you at will under the guise of “National Security” (Leviticus 26:17).


“We warned you that the price of liberty was “Eternal Vigilance.” But while you were distracted by ball games and TV shows, government stole away your liberties and bankrupted your children.”

“We warned you through our Declaration of Independence in which we would not tolerate, while we held fast to the Word of God in throwing off the tyrant (Daniel 3).”

We warned you…

America is out of excuses and at a loss of freedom and must be restored (Isaiah 58:12, Jeremiah 6:16). President Thomas Jefferson said, “When once a Republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring it’s lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.”

Computer simulation suggests 65 million people could die from Chinese coronavirus | DC Dirty Laundry

(Natural News) A few months ago, a scientist at the Johns Hopkins Centre for Health Security just so happened to create a computer model mapping the potential global impact of a hypothetical disease outbreak almost exactly like the one that’s right now happening with Chinese coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

What it determined, shockingly, is that as many as 65 million people could end up dying from this type of disease in a relatively short period of time.

Eric Toner, the guy behind the research, predicted that this monumental death toll would probably occur “within 18 months” of the first known cases of infection. Within the first six months, he further predicted, “every country in the world” would have the disease – or at least some form of it, seeing as how coronavirus is constantly mutating.

“I have thought for a long time that the most likely virus that might cause a new pandemic would be a coronavirus,” Toner stated prior to the current coronavirus outbreak that’s now being widely reported.

“We don’t yet know how contagious it is,” he further added. “We know that it is being spread person to person, but we don’t know to what extent. And initial first impression is that this is significantly milder than SARS. So that’s reassuring. On the other hand, it may be more transmissible than SARS, at least in the community setting.”

Utilizing a fictional virus calls “CAPS” for his computer analysis, Toner plugged in parameters to make it resistant to all modern vaccines and deadlier than SARS, which actual coronavirus is now turning out to be. Rather than originating in China, however, he had the fictional CAPS virus start in Brazilian pig farms.

Toner had CAPS start out small, initially infecting only farmers in close proximity to the infected swine. But eventually it naturally spread to crowded and more impoverished areas, only to eventually reach the big cities, other countries and everything in between.

Toner’s simulation also showed flights being canceled, travel bookings plummeting by almost half, and people spreading false information on social media about the disease’s progression. All of this and more eventually triggered a global financial crisis in the model, with worldwide Gross Domestic Product (GDP) freefalling by 11 percent, and stock markets plummeting by anywhere from 20 to 40 percent.

Right on schedule, Toner’s predictions included urgent warnings about fast-tracking the production of new vaccines in this new “age of epidemics”

By the time the number of coronavirus infections reaches into the thousands, Toner predicted, major economic impacts would be felt all around the world. This is why he wants to see new vaccine production fast-tracked, which would seem to be the real-life impetus behind nearly all modern-day disease scares.

“If we could make it so that we could have a vaccine within months rather than years or decades, that would be a game changer,” he stated. “But it’s not just the identification of potential vaccines. We need to think even more about how they are manufactured on a global scale and distributed and administered to people.”

“It’s part of the world we live in now,” he ominously concluded. “We’re in an age of epidemics.”

Meanwhile, “health authorities” here in the United States continue to reassure the American public that there’s absolutely nothing to worry about regarding the current coronavirus outbreak that’s being reported, even as multiple confirmed cases of it are now being reported in Washington state, Texas, Illinois and elsewhere.

“We don’t want the American public to be worried about this because their risk is low,” insists Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “On the other hand, we are taking this very seriously and are dealing very closely with Chinese authorities.”

And Now a Novel Theory: Truth as a Defense | The American Spectator

I had to wait until Saturday nightfall, the end of Shabbat, to watch the opening speeches by President Trump’s defense team. At least YouTube had not blacklisted those (yet). I already am a huge Pat Cipollone fan because he is a brilliant legal superstar who clerked in his early law days for the Hon. Danny J. Boggs of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and he has been masterful in defending the President from Day One. But the real zonker for me was watching the masterful “Six Key Facts” opening by virtually unknown Trump Team attorney Michael Purpura. What a great presentation! And then a fine follow-up by Jay Sekulow. After three years of Democrat phony accusations and hoax investigations by them and their Corrupt Journalist Corps into every imaginable lie and rabbit hole, followed by half a year of Pelosi-Schiff-Nadler lies over the Ukraine phone call, the moment finally came for one rare week to unfold in Washington when, like it or not, the argument for President Trump finally gets to be heard through the interference by the corrupt media. Interestingly, his defense team seems to have come up with a novel theory for putting forward the President’s case: Truth.

Really, that is all there is to the Trump defense. Truth. That’s all.

Truth: Ukraine President Zelensky said the phone call was fine, and he never felt threatened by any quid pro quo.

Truth: The money that Congress earmarked for Ukraine was dispatched by the President within the mandated time frame.

Truth: The money was dispatched before any investigation into Burisma was undertaken.

Truth: Ukraine did not even perceive a hold on that money until a Politico article appeared a month after the phone call.

Truth: President Trump gave Ukraine lethal weapons including Javelin anti-tank missiles to use against Russian expansionism, the kind of desperately needed lethal aid that Obama refused to give.

Truth: President Trump frequently has held up aid to a wide swath of foreign governments located across four continents until he has been satisfied that the prospective recipients have begun fighting internal corruption.

Truth: The actual transcript of the phone call shows no link between security aid and corruption investigations.

Truth: No Democrat witness ever testified of first-hand information that aid had been tied to investigating Burisma or the Bidens.

Truth: Ambassador Sondland guessed what he guessed, presumed what he presumed, speculated what he speculated, but when he actually asked the President “What do you want?” the President replied “I want nothing”:

But I believe I just asked him an open-ended question, Mr. Chairman. “What do you want from Ukraine? I keep hearing all these different ideas and theories and this and that. What do you want?” And it was a very short and abrupt conversation. He was not in a good mood. And he just said, “I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing.”… This is the final word that I heard from the president of the United States.

Truth: The Democrats have no case for treason and therefore did not submit an impeachment article alleging that crime.

Truth: The Democrats have no case for bribery and therefore did not submit an impeachment article alleging that crime.

Truth: The Democrats have no case for high crimes and therefore did not submit an impeachment article alleging that.

Truth: The Democrats have no case for misdemeanors as the term was understood in the 18th century and therefore did not submit an impeachment article alleging that.

Truth: There are no other grounds set forth in the United States Constitution to seek impeachment.

Truth: The Constitution and 230 years of American jurisprudence, dating to George Washington, have seen Presidents assert “Executive Privilege” in conflicts with Congress and then seek rulings from the courts.

Truth: The Democrats did not allow the Republicans to call their own witnesses during the House travesty.

Truth: The yeoman’s work on the Pelosi Stillborn Impeachment did not even emerge from the House Judiciary Committee but from the House Intelligence Committee.

Truth: Schiff, Pelosi, and Nadler claim that they passed articles of impeachment based on “overwhelming evidence” — yet now are begging the Senate to call a slew of witnesses to get some evidence.

Truth: The House could have subpoenaed John Bolton or his top assistant, Charles Kupperman, or Mick Mulvaney, but they decided not to bother doing so.

Truth: Under American law, the accuser bears the burden to prove guilt, and no American ever before has been obligated instead by a legal burden to prove his or her innocence.

Truth: The House claimed that the impeachment was so urgent that there was no time to issue witness subpoenas — then sat on the impeachment articles for 33 days before submitting them to the Senate.

Truth: There never before has been an impeachment within the election year when a President has been campaigning for reelection.

In other words, this really is a simple case because it is no case. If not for the filth of politics, this case would have been dismissed instantly. Any practicing attorney fresh out of law school knows that, when a lawsuit has no legs to stand on, the defendant may move the court to dismiss the case immediately, even before the summoning of witnesses and the conduct of evidentiary discovery. In federal practice, it is called a “Motion to Dismiss.” The principle is that judges are busy overseeing serious cases with real issues, lay people have more important things to do with their time than to be bothered with jury duty if that can be avoided, and taxpayers ought to be spared the financial waste of pointless lawsuits. Therefore, if on the face of a complaint there is no case, it can be dismissed up-front. This Pelosi Stillborn Impeachment is a textbook example of a frivolous legal matter that should be dismissed on demurrer.

The problem is that politics is dirty, and the Pelosi Stillborn Impeachment is pure politics. It has nothing to do with truth, justice, or the American Way. Rather, it is a filthy political gambit to stain the President’s record, to destroy his legacy in history, and manipulatively to win the Senate for the Democrats by forcing four Republican senators seeking reelection this November in purple states to demonstrate their Trump allegiances, thus giving red meat to Democrat voters. So it aims to corner Susan Collins of Maine, Thom Tillis of Georgia, Martha McSally of Arizona, and Cory Gardner of Colorado. That is what this is all about.

On a second level, it is a tired, life-defeated Jerrold Nadler’s desperate scramble to avoid being primaried-out of his House seat in a safe-Left-Democrat New York district where an Ocasio-Cortez wannabe wants to drive him out. He is too old to campaign and press-the-flesh anymore. With no intention whatsoever by this observation to denigrate or mock his body shape, he simply is in no physical condition to walk the blocks of his district to knock on doors. As Joe Crowley was ousted in a primary when he could not beat Ocasio-Cortez’s pathetically small attainment in getting the votes of a minuscule 3 percent of her district’s voters, so would Nadler be fork-lifted out of his House seat if he failed to get the impeachment articles through.

But things have a way of playing out unexpectedly. The narcissist Democrat focus on how the four Republican purple-state U.S. senators will vote forgets that Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Doug Jones of Alabama also will have to vote. Jones, too, is up for election in November. If he votes against the President, he is out. Indeed, he is out anyway. And although Manchin is four years away from his next season to lie to West Virginia voters, if he votes against the President he is finished. He saved his skin last time by voting to approve Justice Brett Kavanaugh. If he votes with the Democrats for conviction now, he never will slither out of that one. Once Manchin or Jones votes for the truth, that will nullify any attack on Collins, Tillis, McSally, or Gardner.

As the President’s team throughout this week augments its first two hours of Truth as a defense, it very well may unfold that even the four “Republican purples” may decide that the expanded week-long record will thereupon give them ample political backing for voting to end the circus without bringing in more witnesses. And if there are to be more witnesses, Schiff and Nadler foolishly opened the door during their ever-repetitive drone attacks in the Senate to summoning both Hunter Biden and Joe Biden as material witnesses. Meanwhile, even if the Democrats would get John Bolton and Charles Kupperman in exchange for the Bidens, we next would witness the delightful spectacle of Bolton and Kupperman, after being sworn in, both refusing to answer any further questions beyond name, rank, and serial number, invoking Executive Privilege. Then would come the Hunter Biden spectacle, which finally would get some television ratings for this thing, lifting it from competing alongside late-night cable infomercials for least-viewed. The best would be the Joe Biden finale because, after he gets sworn in and is asked his first question about the bribes his family got from Ukraine in exchange for him releasing one billion dollars to feed Ukraine corruption, guess what he will do? If he remembers to read the script on his lawyer’s index card, yup, he will invoke Executive Privilege.

Of course the Corrupt Journalist Corps will lie all week, will do its most to avoid covering the Trump defense these next several days, will do its utmost to twist and pervert every word of truth presented in defense. But this will be a week like the last weeks of a Presidential election campaign when, after three years and ten months of blacking-out the President’s side of the story, the media cannot help but give that side some significant air time because the matter becomes so front-center in the American consciousness for a few days that it cannot be swept under a rug. This will be one of those weeks.

After three years of stifling mendacity, enjoy the air this week. The forecast is for three or four days of Truth before the fog returns.
