January 11 – Who was Abraham’s Second Wife? — VCY America

January 11
Genesis 24:52-26:16
Matthew 8:18-34
Psalm 10:1-15
Proverbs 3:7-8

Congrats on hanging in there – we’re 1/3 of the way thru January. Don’t let Scripture reading become a duty however – you can browse a list we put together of some of the blessings of reading Scripture (and please share with us if you’ve found some we missed!)

Genesis 25 is a Bible Trivia bonus question – most Christians don’t know the name of Abraham’s second wife. 25:9 takes us back to Machpelah. 25:21 – interesting that two generations in a row of patriarchs had trouble conceiving a child. 25:34 – we see the “mess of pottage” – a phrase that has been used by many over the years including Karl Marx!

Matthew 8:18-22 – I heard a message on this passage entitled “A Question of Commitment.” Following Jesus is greater than any comfort, and any relationship you may have.

Matthew 8:23-27 Jesus has power over nature, and in Matthew 8:28-33 Jesus has power over demons. But instead of seeking deliverance we see a city that “besought him that he would depart.”

Psalm 12:12 – What kind of person will God not forget?

Proverbs 3:7 – How close can we get to evil?

The Bible and its Story: Cities of Refuge

After the division of Palestine among the tribes, Joshua turned his mind to thoughts of peace. He took two important steps toward the establishment of law and national government among his people. To keep them united in religion, he set up a central sanctuary. The tabernacle and the ark were removed from Gilgal, their first abiding place in the Promised Land, and were reërected at Shiloh, an elevated field situated in the centre of the land within the domain of his own tribe, the powerful Ephraimites. Here the sanctuary seemed secure from human enemies.

‎Joshua also strengthened the sense of national unity and respect for law, by establishing six “cities of refuge,” equally placed throughout the land. In those rough days man often perished at the hand of man. Even though the killing was accidental, or done in self-defense, the kinsmen of the dead were supposed to avenge him. To escape them, the “shedder of blood” fled to one of the refuge cities. Here there were always placed watchers at the gates, to protect him and to hear his story. If they adjudged his deed to be excusable, then he might dwell in safety within the city. Outside, the avengers still awaited him.

Precious Repentance — VCY America

And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.

Ezekiel 20:43

When we are accepted of the Lord and are standing in the place of favor, and peace, and safety, then we are led to repent of all our failures and miscarriages toward our gracious God. So precious is repentance that we may call it a diamond of the first water, and this is sweetly promised to the people of God as one most sanctifying result of salvation. He who accepts repentance also gives repentance; and He gives it not out of “the bitter box” but from among those “wafers made with honey” on which He feeds His people. A sense of blood-bought pardon and of undeserved mercy is the best means of dissolving a heart of stone. Are we feeling hard? Let us think of covenant love, and then we shall leave sin, lament sin, and loathe sin; yea, we shall loathe ourselves for sinning against such infinite love. Let us come to God with this promise of penitence and ask Him to help us to remember, and repent, and regret, and re-turn. Oh, that we could enjoy the meltings of holy sorrow! What a relief would a flood of tears be! Lord, smite the rock, or speak to the rock, and cause the waters to flow!

January 11 – Do your work — Reformed Perspective

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might…” – Ecclesiastes 9:10

Scripture reading: Proverbs 23:23-27

Work is a blessing and we pray that we will be blessed with God-pleasing work in 2022. The Bible tells us that as God’s image-bearers we are to “have dominion over . . . every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:28). It urges us to work with our hands so that we can provide for ourselves and others (Ephesians 4:281 Thessalonians 4:11). Work, when performed with the right attitude, can be pleasurable and rewarding. 

Proverbs 27:23-27 portrays the beautiful interplay of diligent work on our part and faithful nurture on God’s. Part of that diligence is to know your present situation well and respond accordingly. In an agrarian society, it was important to know the condition of your flocks and herds.  But giving heed to our own particular setting is no less important in whatever calling we have been placed. 

The proverb calls for diligence, not fear. Since you cannot even see tomorrow, you must trust the God Who holds the future in His hands. Do your reasonable best in your daily labor, and trust the Lord for the rest. Remember, when God puts work into your life, He expects you to put life into your work.

Suggestions for prayer

“Another year is dawning! Dear Father let it be, in working or in waiting, another year with Thee.” Pray for strength to do our work diligently and gratefully.

Rev. Peter Vellenga is presently serving as itinerant preacher waiting upon Lord for continued assignment.

Reinventing Our Plans — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” Then the Lord said, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” Acts 9:6

Many of us begin a New Year planning resolutions — a word that can feel more like “reinvention.” Perhaps we plan to read more, join a gym, or spend more time with the Lord. We make lists, set goals, and ask others to help hold us accountable. While resolutions are not a bad thing, we usually make them more about ourselves and what we want, rather than what God may want for us.

The apostle Paul was a man who, prior to becoming an apostle, felt compelled to stamp out the name of Jesus completely. Certainly, he believed he was doing everything right! However, during the journey to Damascus, God spoke to him in a way that completely rearranged his plans: “So he, trembling and astonished, said, ‘Lord, what do you want me to do?’ Then the Lord said, ‘Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.’” (Acts 9:6). This moment in Paul’s life changed his entire purpose for living. Rather than stamping out the name of Jesus, he was called to proclaim it!

Sometimes, following God’s plan may feel like our lives are being wrecked. He may call us to a place we never imagined, or to something completely opposite of what we wanted.

This year, instead of focusing on how you can ’reinvent’ parts of your life, invite the Lord to renew you. Let go of your plans, and give him control.

Lord, I invite you into every part of my life — not just the parts I want you to fix, but every part that needs fixing, even the parts I can’t see! Help me to go where you are leading, even if it looks different from my own plans! I surrender control to you.

Seek to walk in God’s presence, attentive to the Spirit’s voice. What is he putting on your heart? Will you trust him and obey, knowing he is giving you all the resources needed to do so?

Turning From Discouragement — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

May we all become victorious over despair and disappointment by trusting in and depending on Him.


And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

Many people view discouragement and disappointment as the same thing, but there’s a slight difference. Disappointment is an emotional response to a failed expectation, whereas discouragement, or despair, usually comes from prolonged disillusionment or continued hardship.

Since we cannot experience perfect success in a fallen world or keep ourselves from suffering, there’s no way to avoid all disappointments in life. However, we don’t have to yield to discouragement. With the right perspective of God and His sovereignty over us, we can avoid feelings of despair. When He, in His providence, allows failure and disappointment, it is part of His perfect plan, and He promises to use it for good “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

If our confidence is in ourselves and what we can accomplish, we will always be disappointed. The only true remedy for discouragement is to put our hope in God. He alone can give us the courage to persevere, but we must be willing to look beyond the immediate to the eternal.

The Lord wants us to succeed but not necessarily in our self-reliant endeavours.

Instead, may we all become victorious over despair and disappointment by trusting in and depending on Him.

The Bible and its Story: Caleb’s Lot

In The distribution of the Promised Land only two men were assigned special sections not dictated by lot. These were the two marked men who alone had survived the forty years of the desert, Joshua and Caleb. Joshua chose as his own dwelling place the city of Timnath-serah within the domains of his own tribe of Ephraim; and the entire city was given to him and his household.

‎Caleb reminded Joshua of the ancient promise of the Lord, that Caleb should some day possess the very land which he had spied out when, in the old days, he and Joshua had explored the land. This was the southern city of Hebron, the ancient home and burial place of Abraham. So Caleb was given Hebron with its surrounding cities and vineyards; and, lion-hearted as ever, though he was now over eighty years of age, he marched up with his household to conquer Hebron. His chief aid was his nephew Othniel, who wedded his daughter. Of her we are told that coming to her father suddenly from a journey she entreated him to give more land to her and Othniel. So he gave her the region southward, where she and her husband established themselves with their household. Theirs was apparently the southern outpost of the Hebrews toward Egypt and the desert.

Calling Evil Good, Is the Left Winning the ‘Battle for America’s Soul’? — David Fiorazo

Just like he did when he campaigned against President Trump, Joe Biden keeps claiming he and the godless Democrat socialists have a corner on the market of righteousness and morality in America. The Biden Harris administration keeps calling evil good and mocking the one true God while claiming that God is on their side.

It’s called propaganda.

During the 2020 election cycle, Joe Biden’s website displayed an interesting phrase in the upper-left corner: “Battle for the Soul of the Nation.” Most people missed it. The implication was this: the soul of America is at stake, and those nasty, deplorable evangelical Christians, conservatives, and Republicans are the immoral ones who are hurting the country.

There’s a problem here. It seems we understand and define the word, “soul” very differently because the O’Biden Democrats have values that are in opposition with Bible-believing Christians and the word of God.

So what did he say last week and what was the context this time? The great “insurrection” at the nation’s Capital. For a year now, the marching orders of the left have been to use what happened on January 6, 2020, to frame more than half the country – freedom-loving citizens – as radical, domestic terrorists.

Lie, divide, and conquer.

Whoever runs Biden’s Twitter account tweeted this:

I have said it many times, and it is no more true or real than when we think about the events of January 6: We are in a battle for the soul of America. A battle that by the grace of God, and by the goodness and greatness of this nation, we will win.

Really. Most people understand what happened on January 6 was a calculated, pre-planned set-up to take Trump down and frame Republicans. Once again, the global socialists, Democrat media, and America-haters teamed up and did not let another manufactured crisis go to waste.

But Joe, now you’re saying America is good and great? Midterms must be coming up. That’s right, at least in his rhetoric, old Joe is pivoting to the center in the hopes that naive, uninformed Americans will believe him and think he’s a moderate.

Also, what god do you suppose he’s referring to? Satan and his minions have nothing to do with grace, but lots to do with the Democrat Party Platform. Please understand this is a war of worldviews, not politics.

Even prior to being ushered into the White House, Biden’s handlers tried pushing the ridiculous idea that Joe was a type of savior, a victor of a holy war and his election would ultimately save America. He often referred to healing and light in his campaign speeches in attempts to present a false impression Biden was the moral one to bring positive change and unity the people.

Make no mistake, when the left refers to unity, they actually mean submission.

They use the Alinsky tactic of demonizing us, their opponents to distract from the real issues. The left has this down to a science.

Spiritual warfare is very real and more obvious now than ever in our short history. There are battles in heavenly realms over people’s souls and nations because of what they represent. The enemy hates America because of the God we were once united under and the true believers who live for Christ.

I wrote a chapter about this in my book, Canceling Christianity. So since Joe brought it up, let’s talk about morality for a moment. Some may wonder how the open hostility toward the Judeo-Christian worldview became so accepted and normalized.

I quoted author, Don Feder, who explained why left hates religion and how the culture war is between the left’s neo-Marxist worldview—which has come to dominate the Democrat Party—and the Judeo-Christian ethic. The clash was inevitable. Feder states:

  1. Judeo-Christian (or Biblical) morality teaches objective ethics—applicable for all time and in all places. Leftism teaches that morality is subjective (in a constant state of flux) and that anything can be justified if it advances the revolution.
  2. Religion puts God above the state. Leftism says the regime is God—the source of all blessings.
  3. Judeo-Christian ethics says the natural family is essential for social cohesion. Leftism says the family is whatever we say it is, and is really not that important, anyway.
  4. The Judeo-Christian worldview says God created man and woman and intended for them to complement each other. Leftism says male and female are meaningless concepts, and that to believe otherwise is bigotry.
  5. Judeo-Christian morality encourages procreation as the First Commandment. Leftism says that in a world of global warming, having children is irresponsible and should be limited by law, if individual choice isn’t enough.

In my own articles and videos here for Freedom Project, I’ve addressed how out of the mainstream Joe Biden’s gruesome support for abortion is, more extreme than any president in history. We’ve exposed his anti-American open borders policy and how his party has weakened the American economy, the so-called education system, the military, national defense, and trade relations with other countries.

I’ve discussed his constant denial of absolute truth, promotion of moral relativism and the entire LGBTQ agenda, defends vandals, looters, and rioters but not persecuted Christians, cozies up to Communist China, and the fact he has gone on record to demand more Islam be taught in government schools.

And Biden Democrats are fighting for the soul of America? Please.

Let me close with one of many great quotes on this topic of righteousness. President Calvin Coolidge once stated:

“The strength of our country is the strength of its religious convictions. The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country.” 

Not only is the Bible no longer taught, it is now banned. Whose morality is being advanced and legislated across this land? You know whose, and it’s not the only living God of the Christian faith. We need more people who are unashamed of the gospel, who know the true history of this nation and the U.S. Constitution to activate and take a stand for truth, righteousness, and justice.

THE FOUNDATION

“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” —Samuel Adams (1781)

IN TODAY’S DIGEST

Democrats Destroy ‘Democracy’

Our Founders gave us a Republic — if we can keep it.

Nate Jackson

Democrats all around the country are working overtime these days to undermine election integrity. They point to the Capitol riot last year and Republican election legislation in various states as evidence that this is an emergency, though they don’t seem to recall how they sowed widespread distrust in the 2016 election. Congressional Democrats are engaged in a full-court press to pass legislation to fundamentally change American elections. That’s why Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are in Georgia today to make big speeches about how they’re trying to save democracy destroy Liberty.

But it’s not just speeches and arguing over possible legislation. Real changes are afoot, like New York City’s new measure granting voting rights (in local elections only) to the Big Apple’s 800,000 green-card-holding noncitizens, so long as they have lived in the city for a mere 30 days. New York City’s population of 8.8 million is bigger than that of 40 states and it’s the first major U.S. city to do this.

No states allow noncitizen voting — in fact, reports the Associated Press, “Alabama, Arizona, Colorado and Florida, have adopted rules that would preempt any attempts to pass laws like the one in New York City.” And, notes the Washington Examiner, “Congress passed a law in 1996 barring noncitizens from participating in federal elections.”

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican at the center of one of the most contentious states in the 2020 election, says that “we should have a constitutional amendment, a U.S. constitutional amendment, that only American citizens vote in our elections.” Public support for a citizenship requirement is quite high.

Our Thomas Gallatin covered NYC’s measure in early December, but it officially took effect Sunday and it will be put into practice for elections beginning in 2023. Unless, that is, a Republican lawsuit succeeds. The Republican National Committee filed suit Monday, rightly alleging that NYC’s measure violates the state constitution’s establishment of the right to vote for citizens.

Mayor Eric Adams, who simply declined to veto the City Council’s measure after letting go of his earlier reservations, said, “I think it is imperative that people who are in a local municipality have the right to decide who is going to govern them.” In other comments, Adams insisted that “New Yorkers should have a say in their government.” Does citizenship mean nothing? If a green-card holder lives in the city 30 days, is he or she now a “New Yorker”? In fact, the votes of actual New Yorkers are now diluted.

“We build a stronger democracy when we include the voices of immigrants,” said former City Councilmember Ydanis Rodriguez. No, we sustain our Constitutional Republic when citizenship means something.

Yet Democrats are hell-bent on literally de-meaning citizenship. Between Joe Biden’s wide open southern border and Chuck Schumer’s renewed and possible Senate-changing push for election-altering legislation nationwide, NYC’s move is just the tip of a very dangerous iceberg. The 2020 election was distrusted by millions because Democrats had exploited the pandemic to institute things like bulk-mail balloting. They now want to make such election chaos and fraud permanent.

Biden’s speech today, Schumer’s filibuster-busting in Senate, and New York’s change to city elections are all in the same vein — destroying Liberty to ensure permanent Democrat power.

Georgia on Biden’s Mind

He’s heading to the Peach State to accuse the GOP of denying voting rights to millions.

Gary Bauer

Joe Biden is heading to Georgia today to rally support for his plan to nationalize all election laws and prevent the election reform that is happening at the state level. He’s expected to deliver a major speech accusing the Republican Party of denying voting rights to millions of Americans.

It’s a continuation on the theme of his outrageous January 6th remarks suggesting that conservatives are a threat to the country. Biden and other Democrats are saying that election integrity laws in the states threaten democracy and the concept of free elections in America.

Their demagoguery on voting rights is obscene! They are telling millions of minority Americans that the party of Lincoln is trying to deny them their right to vote. It is impossible to come up with a greater threat to the unity of the country than this big lie.

But get used to it. This will be their campaign theme in 2022. A top White House official told Politico, “We are doubling down, kicking it into another gear, we are going right to the belly of the beast, or ground zero, for voter suppression.”

Really? “Ground zero for voter suppression” is a big claim, but totally devoid of the facts. Georgia’s new voter integrity law is less restrictive than many liberal states like Delaware and New York.

I suspect it won’t be long before Biden suggests that Republicans want to put black Americans back in chains. Oh, wait — he already did that!

Voter IDs laws are overwhelmingly popular and do not result in voter suppression. Limiting the use of drop boxes, which Georgia never used before the pandemic, is not voter suppression.

But if you’re looking for extreme voter laws, look no further than New York City, where the so-called “moderate” new mayor just endorsed the idea of allowing non-citizens to vote in our elections. That’s extremely unpopular, and proves there’s no such thing as a “moderate Democrat” anymore.

Andrew McCabe Wants to Surveil You

“Are you going to catch this threat if your focus is only on the traditional, right-wing extremist?”

Douglas Andrews

We’re not sure what’s worse: a disgraced former acting head of the FBI calling for increased federal surveillance of mainstream conservatives as potential “domestic terrorists,” or an esteemed American university giving him a platform from which to spew such authoritarian garbage. As bad luck would have it, we got both last week during a panel discussion at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics titled “Protecting American Democracy: Lessons from the Capitol Riot.”

Prior to becoming a CNN contributor, Andrew McCabe was, of course, an essential figure in the FBI’s efforts to frame former President Donald Trump for crimes committed by his political opponent, Hillary Clinton — namely colluding with Russia to rig the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. He’s also a proven liar, having been caught doing so “both under oath and not under oath on several occasions” according to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. So shame on the University of Chicago for swapping spit with this jackass.

During the discussion, McCabe sounded Chicken Little’s alarm against the domestic terrorism threat posed by, for example, those tens of millions of voters who continue to doubt that Basement Joe Biden won a fair and square election in 2020, and those tens of millions of parents who don’t take kindly to the racist indoctrination of their children by hard-left teachers, administrators, and school boards.

Here’s what he said about how that rag-tag band of hooligans and sightseers managed to evade the watchful eye of federal law enforcement prior to staging their unarmed non-insurrection on January 6:

Are you going to catch this threat if your focus is only on the traditional, right-wing extremist — those groups that we know about … the fringes of the right-wing movement? And I think the answer to that is ‘no.’ … [Federal law enforcement] may have been looking in the wrong direction. It’s those very fundamental assumptions about what constitutes a threat that I think could be the most impactful. And it’s entirely possible that when the intelligence community and the law enforcement community looks out across this mainstream … they didn’t assume that that group of people — business owners, white people from the suburbs, educated, employed — presented a threat of violence, and now we know very clearly that they do. So that’s, um, I, I think that’s, to me as a former law enforcement leader and a lifetime, you know, lifetime agent um, and counterterrorism, um, specialist, that’s the part that really concerns me the most.

So there you have it. Rather than joining Joe Biden, Lloyd Austin, and Mark Milley in their quest to root out those 17 neo-Nazis and white supremacists that so “threaten our democracy,” McCabe is calling for a “rapid and complete response by law enforcement,” including surveillance of — let’s just say it — Trump supporters. The dude is rotten to the core.

But there’s more: “I can tell you,” said McCabe, “from my perspective of spending a lot of time focused on the radicalization of international terrorists and Islamic extremist and extremists of all stripes … that this group shares many of the same characteristics of those groups that we’ve seen radicalized along entirely different ideological lines.”

Yep, when I think of flagpoles, MAGA hats, and middle-aged white guys, my mind immediately makes the connection to car bombs, highjacked airliners, and mass-murdering Islamist cutthroats.

Interestingly, McCabe decried “a lack of transparency on the part of leadership across the law enforcement spectrum” concerning the events of January 6, but not in the way we’d expect. No, McCabe doesn’t seem to be too concerned about the FBI’s use of agent provocateurs to incite conservative groups into bad behavior — for example, Ray Epps and other earpiece-wearing participants who repeatedly exhorted others to “go into the Capitol” that day, and yet somehow managed to avoid prosecution for their leadership roles in the J6 riot and have their faces surreptitiously removed from the FBI’s Most Wanted posters.

Nope, nothing to see here, folks. Just a distraction to keep us from focusing on the real threat, the pressing threat, the existential threat of indignant parents and angry Trump supporters.

What Does ‘New Normal’ Mean?

Hint: It doesn’t mean going back to pre-pandemic life.

Emmy Griffin

This pandemic is now endemic. We will have to learn to live with COVID as a risk we factor into everyday life. This is the conclusion to which even the federal government has finally conceded. But some have a very different take on what the “new normal” should look like.

Omicron is spreading fast, though it is more mild than other COVID variants. Omicron has infected vaccinated and unvaccinated alike. The only benefit (though an important one) that the jab seems to have is that the symptoms are less severe. On December 28, President Joe Biden finally admitted that the pandemic cannot be solved at the federal level. Yet he still clings to the fallacious idea that this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

Not a week later, Biden doubled down on his intent to defeat the virus. He asserted: “Having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay. COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID.”

The president seems unwilling for this crisis to end because with it, his excuse to grab emergency power ends as well.

An essay penned by Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel (the architect of ObamaCare), Dr. Michael Osterholm, and Dr. Celine R. Gounder outlines the steps the president can take to establish a “new normal.” (If these names sound familiar, it’s because they were former advisers to President Biden.)

First, they want everyone to admit that COVID is here to stay, but they also assure their readers that they are not proposing getting rid of the “zero COVID” policy altogether.

The essay does have some reasonable ideas that really have been a positive change during the pandemic. These include “institutionalizing telemedicine waivers, licensure to practice and enable billing across state lines, and other measures that allow the flow of medical services to severely affected regions should be a priority.” They also want to clarify that, yes, COVID is a respiratory illness like other endemic illnesses such as influenza or respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). As such, it should be lumped into a new category to include all such respiratory diseases.

They were making decent sense … and then they ruined it.

The doctors propose people receive cards that log their vaccination status, i.e., vaccine passports. These passports are merely virtue signals at this point — plus they are rife with authoritarian abuse. We are already seeing this crop up in cities that require vaccine passports. The unvaccinated are treated like second-class citizens. That, of course, is the point. Those who are pushing vax passes want to make life as difficult as possible for the unvaxxed in an attempt to bully them into compliance. Vaccine passports are not a good plan.

The authors also want to make the COVID vaccine a requirement for school-aged children. As an example, they bring up polio, the vaccine for which prevents people from getting it. Conversely, the COVID vaccine does not prevent you from getting SARS-CoV-2. As Philip Klein notes at National Review: “Public-school mandates have typically involved vaccines such as MMR (against measles, mumps, and rubella), which offers lifetime protection. The current Covid vaccines have shown waning efficacy after a few months.”

Furthermore, the COVID vaccine has not been around long enough for us to know the long-term effects it could have on children.

This “new normal” is not normal at all. We are merely in a less panicky, more resigned, but still authoritarian-laden pandemic.

GOP’s Jordan Won’t Play Dems’ J6 Games

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan has no interest in participating in the Democrats’ sham investigation.

Douglas Andrews

In a decision that surprised no one, Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan has declined an invitation to appear before Nancy Pelosi’s truth-averse January 6 Committee.

The sham committee, also known as “The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol,” has long since become a bad joke. Jordan, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee and an investigative pit bull, was selected by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to be a member of this committee, but Pelosi, in an unprecedented act of raw political power cowardice, denied McCarthy’s picks of Jordan and Indiana’s Jim Banks, which prompted McCarthy to pull his three other picks, leaving the committee with only Pelosi-approved Democrat lapdogs and two Trump-deranged soon-to-be former Republicans, Wyoming’s Liz Cheney and Illinois’s Adam Kinzinger. So much for objective oversight and dispassionate fact-finding.

Did we mention it was a sham committee?

Pelosi’s partisans seem unwilling to issue subpoenas to anyone except Republicans, despite the fact that Pelosi and her fellow Democrats were in charge of Capitol security on January 6. What did Nancy know and when did she know it? This caricature of a committee has no interest in finding out why then-President Donald Trump approved deployment of the National Guard to protect the Capitol, but his request was blocked by DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and Pelosi herself.

In a four-page blistering letter to Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, Jordan called out Pelosi and her fellow Democrats. It began:

The American people are tired of Democrats’ nonstop investigations and partisan witch hunts. Your letter of December 22, 2021, unfortunately continues this Democrat obsession. … This request is far outside the bounds of any legitimate inquiry, violates core Constitutional principles, and would serve to further erode legislative norms.

As you well know, I have no relevant information that would assist the Select Committee in advancing any legitimate legislative purpose. I cannot speak to Speaker Pelosi’s failure to ensure the appropriate security posture at the Capitol complex in advance of well-publicized protests on January 6, 2021. I cannot elaborate on former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund’s statement that a concern about “optics” — following widespread calls from Democrats in 2020 to defund the police — contributed to the limited security response. I have nothing to add to the bipartisan, comprehensive findings of the Senate investigative committees or to those issued by federal inspectors general. I cannot testify about the Justice Department’s ongoing law enforcement efforts, although I am aware of reports that the FBI has determined the violence was not coordinated or part of any “organized plot to overturn the presidential election result.”

In other words: Pound sand.

Nor would it seem that Jordan has anything to add to the Democrats’ failure to investigate the real insurrection, which took place over a period of weeks in the late spring and early summer of 2020, when Black Lives Matter thugs and antifa goons perpetrated 574 riots in the wake of the wrongful death of career criminal George Floyd. That prolonged insurrection, it should be noted, cost dozens of Americans their lives, wounded more than 2,000 cops, and did an estimated $2 billion in damage. It also prompted Jordan to note in his letter, “Unlike many senior Democrats, I have been consistent in denouncing political violence and supporting law enforcement personnel — whether the violence occurred on January 6 at the Capitol or in the summer of 2020 in cities across the country.”

Jordan has still another reason to be distrustful of this kangaroo committee: It is manifestly corrupt. The committee proved as much when it got caught altering and misattributing the content of text messages between Jordan and then-Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Not surprisingly, California Democrat Adam “Shifty” Schiff was right in the middle of the plot to deceive. But, yeah, we can have confidence in the committee’s findings.

“The American people deserve better than the Democrats’ incessant focus on partisan investigations,” writes Jordan in conclusion. “Rampant inflation is hurting American families, an unmitigated crisis at the southern border threatens American communities, the Biden Administration is weaponizing counterterrorism tools against American parents, and President Biden’s weak leadership endangers American service members overseas. These real challenges affecting our constituents today are the issues on which Congress should properly be focused.”

Sham investigations or kitchen-table issues? Clearly, Jordan has a better sense of what’s on the minds of the American people than do congressional Democrats. Voters will likely remember this come November.

WaPo Rewards Its Russian-Collusion Propagandist

Rather than change its ways, the Post has doubled down on pushing the Democrats’ agenda.

Thomas Gallatin

The Washington Post announced that it has elevated national editor Steven Ginsberg to senior managing editor leading its main news sections. So what? you may say. Well, the Post praised Ginsberg for having “led the organization’s political coverage through the Trump years,” adding that he “helped propel the company to one of its most successful periods with reporting that brought Pulitzer Prizes along with enormous readership.”

Ah — so his Trump Derangement Syndrome became a cash cow.

If The Washington “Democracy Dies in Darkness” Post were being more journalistically honest, it would have fired Ginsberg, not promoted him. Ginsberg played a key role in repeatedly peddling anti-Trump propaganda and downright fake news, including pushing the Russian-collusion hoax for years. The Post got its reporting so wrong that, in an effort to regain some semblance of journalistic credibility, the paper issued corrections on two of its biggest “bombshell” collusion stories — conveniently only after Donald Trump was no longer in office.

Ginsberg, who has worked his entire professional career for the Post, responded to the promotion by stating that he plans to do “what I’ve always done: work with the best journalists to do the best journalism.” He further added, “We have huge ambitions … [but] the core of our mission is still the same — to hold power to account.” Evidently, he forgot to mention the Post’s exception to that sentiment, which is if those in power happen to be Democrats.

The mission for the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post was not to objectively cover Trump’s candidacy or presidency, but rather to do everything in its power to undermine Trump with the American public by ensuring that all reporting on the man was negative, even to the point of publishing fake news.

The Post’s promotion of Ginsberg further cements the sad fact that the once-reputable paper is nothing more than a leftist political shill. It’s become nothing more than the publishing arm of the Democrat Party, doing little other than producing propaganda for the Left’s agenda.

EXECUTIVE NEWS SUMMARY

Thomas Gallatin & Jordan Candler

Top of the Fold

  • Abrams snubs Biden’s Georgia gaslighting: Joe Biden is heading down to Atlanta to stump for the Democrats’ dubious bill federalizing election law. Biden plans to continue his false smear campaign against Georgia’s voter integrity laws, which he ridiculously likened to “Jim Crow.” Biden is already underwater in the Peach State, and on the day Georgia celebrates having just won the college football championship, he’s going there to declare to the rest of the country just how awful and terrible the state is. This may be why Stacey Abrams, whose entire political brand is built on complaining about voter integrity laws and refusing to accept election results, says she’s too busy to bother attending.
  • Economy, not COVID, is biggest worry for Americans: Recent polling from the Associated Press found that the top concern for Americans is not COVID but the sorry state of the U.S. economy. Some 68% of Americans listed the economy and growing inflation as their top worry going into 2022, whereas just 37% of Americans see the ongoing pandemic as one of the top five issues. These result don’t bode well for Democrats hoping to retain control of Congress, which likely explains Biden’s shift to focusing on fearmongering against voting integrity laws with the continued refrain of “democracy under threat.” Clearly, for the majority of Americans, the economy is what’s under threat.
  • McCarthy promises Dems a taste of their own medicine: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has promised to kick three Democrats off their committees should the Republicans win control of the House in November. “The Democrats have created a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committees,” McCarthy observed. “Never in the history [of Congress] have you had the majority tell the minority who can be on committee. But this [is the] new standard which these Democrats have voted for.” The three Democrats whom McCarthy pinpointed for committee removal are Eric Swalwell (Homeland Security), Ilhan Omar (Foreign Affairs), and Adam Schiff (Intelligence Committee).
  • Bill Maher refuses to reject Trump voters: Lefty comedian/pundit Bill Maher is refusing to buy into the Democrats’ and Leftmedia’s January 6 narrative that demonizes Trump supporters as a threat to democracy. Noting the deep political division in the country, Maher argued: “This idea that we have to constantly be arguing politics with everybody — that’s what has to stop. Because when you take the politics out of the discussion — and this is coming from a person who made his living talking politics — you find that people are just people, and you can’t hate them. I constantly say it: You can hate Trump. You can’t hate all the people who like him — it’s half the country. And you can’t set yourself up as some sort of superior moral paragon, because this is your political belief, and somebody else has another one.”

SHORT CUTS

Insight: “There comes a point when a man must refuse to answer to his leader if he is also to answer to his own conscience.” —Hartley Shawcross (1902-2003)

For the record: “The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities, so these are people who were unwell to begin with.” —CDC Director Rochelle Walensky (“There have been 836,000 covid deaths in America. 75% of 836K is 627,000. This means they shut down the country, stole two years of education from children, sent thousands of businesses under, and caused mass hysteria when only 209,000 deaths weren’t people already deathly sick.” —Greg Price)

Friendly fire I: “The CDC has turned into a punchline. … There’s a huge credibility crisis for the CDC.” —CNN’s Brian Stelter

Friendly fire II: “[Democrats] have a policy problem and a messaging problem. … They thought they could vaccinate their way out of this problem. … This administration … had all the money in the world for testing, and they just didn’t focus on it. And that was a huge mistake.” —CNN panelist Paul Kane

The BIG Lie: “[Governor Ron DeSantis] has been someone who’s … not exactly [been] advocating for people in his state to get vaccinated, which we know is the way that people can be protected, ways that lives can be saved.” —White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki (“This is an easily provable lie. It takes mere minutes to find numerous instances of DeSantis advocating — ‘exactly’ — for his constituents to get vaccinations, as he did this summer at a press conference in which he said they ‘save lives.’” —David Harsanyi)

First World problems: “When the Supreme Court justices took their seats Friday morning to hear oral arguments in two cases challenging the Biden administration’s covid rules, seven of the justices wore masks — a change in their previous behavior prompted, no doubt, by the emergence of an new infectious strain. One justice, Sonia Sotomayor, who had previously been the only justice to wear a mask on the bench, participated remotely from her chambers. … Which brings me to the question: Where was [Neil] Gorsuch’s mask? … No one is the boss of Justice Gorsuch. Like his colleagues, he had a choice about whether to wear a mask. Unlike them, he chose poorly.” —Washington Post deputy editorial page editor Ruth Marcus

Non compos mentis I: “What the Republicans are doing across the country is really a legislative continuation of what they did on January 6th.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Non compos mentis II: “It’s entirely possible that when the intelligence community and the law enforcement community looks out across this mainstream, they didn’t assume [on January 6] that that group of people — business owners, white people from the suburbs, educated, employed — presented a threat of violence, and now we know very clearly that they do.” —former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe

Non compos mentis III: “I can tell you from my perspective of spending a lot of time focused on the radicalization of international terrorists and Islamic extremist and extremists of all stripes … that this group shares many of the same characteristics of those groups that we’ve seen radicalized along entirely different ideological lines.” —Andrew McCabe

Indoctrination: “If people are tuning out what’s going on in cable news … they’re just, you know, ignoring everything and living their lives and we’re not really getting the information that they need to them.” —CNN’s Oliver Darcy

And last… “I think when a major news network spends a year in COVID hysteria and then suddenly gets up right after January 6th and flips to ‘oh maybe we’re out of touch and we need to not be scared of COVID,’ the midterms are calling.” —Erick Erickson

In 2021, Americans waved goodbye to blue cities and states

Democrat Governors led the other top states with population losses: Hawaii, Massachusetts, Louisiana, California, and Illinois. The city with the biggest population decline, 2.9%, was Washington D.C., is also saddled with Democrat political leadership.

Pfizer, Moderna Sue Human Immune System For Patent Infringement — The Babylon Bee

U.S.—Vaccine manufacturers Pfizer and Moderna have filed a suit for patent infringement against the human immune system. Attorneys involved in the joint filing allege the human immune system not only fights COVID-19 infections but knowingly prevents further infections via a method known as “natural immunity.”

“It’s a sham!” argued prosecuting attorney Harold Durham. “Natural immunity is cutting into the profits of these humble vaccine manufacturers. Natural immunity is a clear rip-off of our mRNA treatment, which is also designed to trigger an immune response. This is in violation of a patent filed over a year ago!”

The human immune system has hired infamous patent attorney Joshua Law to build a credible defense.

“Patent Law didn’t exist when my client began protecting the human body from disease. Even so, it’s been continuing its work unmolested for thousands of years. Now someone is coming in to say everything the human immune system has done is their intellectual property? It’s a farce!” said Law in a statement to the press.

Litigation is set to begin in two weeks. Legal experts favor Pfizer and Moderna and expect the two companies to share the immune response patent briefly before eventually suing each other.

“There can only be one lord of the vaccines,” said Andrew Moderna, “and he does not share power!”

COVID Survival Rate For Under 20s Is 99.9987%; Stanford Epidemiology Prof Study | ZeroHedge News

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Top epidemiologist Professor John Ioannidis has published a new study which concludes that the survival rate of people under the age of 20 who catch COVID is 99.9987%.

The data used from the study was taken before the advent of mass vaccination programs, meaning the numbers apply to unvaccinated people.

Ioannidis previously published an analysis of seroprevalence (antibody) studies from 2020, which resulted in him being able to reveal that the infection fatality rate for COVID globally was around 0.15%. In Europe, the number stood at 0.3%-0.4% , while in Africa and Asia it went down to 0.05%.

Now the professor has published new information that breaks down infection fatality rates by age.

“From analysis of 25 seroprevalence surveys across 14 countries, Prof. Ioannidis and his colleague found the IFR varied from 0.0013% in the under-20s (around one in 100,000) to 0.65% in those in their 60s,” writes Will Jones.

For those above 70 not in a care home it was 2.9%, rising to 4.9% for all over-70s. This means that even for the elderly, more than 95% of those infected survive – 97.1% when considering those not in a care home. For younger people the mortality risk is orders of magnitude less, with 99.9987% of under-20s surviving a bout of the virus. These survival rates include people with underlying health conditions, so for the healthy the rates will be higher again (and the fatality rates lower).”

The authors of the study concluded that the data reflects the reality that the infection fatality rate of COVID is substantially lower than previously reported estimates.

“The study’s findings confirm that Covid is a mild disease in all but a small minority of cases. With Omicron now reducing the severity several-fold further, even the proponents of lockdown should be able to accept that this virus is well below a level where restrictions are justifiable,” writes Jones.

The results of the study once again bring into question the rationality of giving COVID-19 vaccines to young people and children.

House Republicans Release Damning Fauci Emails Suggesting Concealed Knowledge Of Lab Leak | ZeroHedge News

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee have released several emails which suggest Dr. Anthony Fauci may have known that Covid-19 originated from a lab leak, and that it may have been “intentionally genetically manipulated.”

“We write to request a transcribed interview of Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director, U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Excerpts of emails we are making public today (see enclosed Appendix I) reveal that Dr. Fauci was warned of two things: (1) the potential that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute Virology (WIV) and (2) the possibility that the virus was intentionally genetically manipulated. It is imperative we investigate if this information was conveyed to the rest of the government and whether this information would have changed the U.S. response to the pandemic,” reads the letter from Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra.

The letter goes on to state that Fauci – despite claiming otherwise on multiple occasions – was in fact aware of the monetary relationship between NIAID, the NIH, EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan lab – by January 27, 2020. Fauci also knew that EcoHealth and NIAID worked together to craft a grant policy which would ‘sidestep the gain-of-function moratorium at the time.’

“This allowed EcoHealth to complete dangerous experiments on novel bat coronaviruses – and with little oversight – that would have otherwise been blocked by the moratorium,” the letter continues, adding that in January 2020, Fauci was also aware that EcoHealth was delinquent in submitting an annual progress report to NIAID, “presumably to hide a gain-of-function experiment conducted on infectious and potentially lethal bat coronaviruses.”

The conference call

The letter references a February 1, 2020 conference call between Fauci, NIH head Collins, and ‘at least eleven other scientists’ who convened to discuss Covid-19.

It was on this conference call that Drs. Fauci and Collins were first warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from the WIV and, further, may have been intentionally genetically manipulated. Again, it is unclear if either Dr. Fauci or Dr. Collins ever passed these warnings along to other government officials or if they simply ignored them.”

Note from February 1, 2020 conference call

Three days after the call, four participants authored a paper entitled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” of which Fauci and Collins were sent drafts. The authors, who had previously expressed concern over a lab-leak and genetic manipulation, suddenly abandoned that theory to insist the new virus had a natural origin.

Meanwhile, on April 16, 2020, Collins emailed Fauci to express dismay that the Nature Medicine article which they saw prior to publication (and were given the opportunity to edit), did not quash the lab leak hypothesis. Collins asked Fauci if the NIH could do more to “put down” the lab leak hypothesis. The next day, Fauci cited the paper from the White House podium “likely in an effort to further stifle the hypothesis that COVID-19 leaked from the WIV.”

Questions

The House GOP letter then asks a series of questions.

Rather than be transparent with the Committee, HHS and NIH continue to hide, obfuscate, and shield the truth. By continuing to refuse to cooperate with our request, your agencies are choosing to hide information that will help inform the origins of the ongoing pandemic, prevent future pandemics, respond to future pandemics, inform the United States’ current national security posture, and restore confidence in our public health experts. HHS and NIH’s continued obstruction is likely to cause irreparable harm to the credibility of these agencies. The emails released today raise significant questions, including but not limited to:

1. Did Drs. Fauci or Collins warn anyone at the White House about the potential COVID-19
originated in a lab and could be intentionally genetically manipulated?

2. If these concerns were not shared, why was the decision to keep them quiet made?

3. What new evidence, if any, came to light about COVID-19 between February 1, 2020 and February 4, 2020 to alter the belief it originated in a lab?

4. Did Drs. Fauci or Collins edit the Nature Medicine paper entitled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2”?

5. Would having this knowledge earlier have benefitted either vaccine or treatment development?

6. By February 1, 2020, were Drs. Fauci or Collins aware of the State Department’s warnings about WIV safety?

7. Would this warning have changed the early response to the COVID-19 pandemic?

BOOM! Senator Rand Paul RIPS into Serial Liar Dr. Tony Fauci and HE HATES EVERY MINUTE OF IT (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

Dr. Tony Fauci testified before the Senate Health Committee just one day after Project Veritas released EXPLOSIVE never before seen military documents regarding the origins of Covid-19, gain-of-function research, vaccines, potential treatments and the government’s effort to conceal everything.

The newly released military documents contradict Dr. Fauci’s previous testimony under oath.  The documents directly contradict his comments to Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) under oath.

The release was timed perfectly to proceed Dr. Fauci’s latest testimony.

Dr. Paul opened his questioning by pointing out Fauci’s disgusting secret media attacks on the Great Barrington Declaration.

NEW EMAILS Show Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins Scheming Against Top Doctor’s Group that Challenged Their Failed and Deadly Policies

Fauci dodged the accusations. Then Dr. Paul then points out that this was not the only time that Fauci conspired with associates to take down opposing voices in the scientific community. Rand Paul pointed out his scheming with Dr. Peter Daszak to refute claims of the origins of the deadly COVID virus. That involved Nature Magazine.

Fauci dodged and obfuscated from the questioning. Fauci accused Senator Paul of lying when there is direct evidence of Dr. Paul’s claims.

Fauci then accused Rand Paul of attacking him because he wanted to raise money!
Wow!

He is soooo dirty.

Here is the full exchange.
RAND WAS ON FIRE.
