Tuesday is The Day...or perhaps the beginning of a long season.

As the political storm approaches, here's a sampling of what we've been sharing on our YouTube channel and Instagram feed:

(Click on the images below to see the videos.)





1. HAPPENING NOW: Widespread looting in Philadelphia Rioters seen clearing out a pharmacy and carrying TVs out of a WalMart.

2. It took under one minute for a swarm of looters to ransack a black-owned boutique in Philadelphia this week.  At least 200 small businesses were targeted by looters, including La'Vanter Boutique, where owner Jameelah Scurry arrived on Tuesday to find it a shell of its former self.  'We are now in danger of losing everything we worked so hard for,' Scurry said Wednesday, adding 'we had everything taken from us in less than a minute.'  The incident on Tuesday was the second time the store has been looted, after previously being robbed during "protests" in August.

3. An estimated 40,000 people attended a rally in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Tuesday calling for a nationwide boycott of France and government policies meant to hurt the European nation in response to President Emmanuel Macron launching a campaign against radical Islamists.

Macron has begun the process of shutting down jihadist groups and arresting radical Islamists in the aftermath of the murder of Samuel Paty, a schoolteacher, for showing his students satirical cartoons of Muhammad by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. Macron has refused to apologize for the cartoons, as many in the Islamic world have demanded, instead announcing France would not yield to violence or intimidation in attempts to curtail free speech. The French government also held a national tribute to Paty, which many in the Islamic world considered an insult given Paty’s status as an infidel.


4. French police “neutralised” and arrested a man Thursday morning after a knife attack inside a church in the city of Nice which left at least three dead and several injured.  Of the three dead in Thursday’s Nice attack, two victims were women and one was a man. One of those women, we now know was killed next to the font of the Notre Dame church, French media reporting she was nearly completely beheaded — a development from earlier reports that stated a throat had been “cut”. The man who died was also killed inside the church was a server or sacristan.

Another woman who was stabbed several times managed to escape the church but succumbed to her injuries outside. French media is now widely reporting that the attacker did shout “Allah akbar” as he struck, in line with the earlier comments of the mayor of Nice.

5. Police in Philadelphia found explosives and other suspicious materials in a van on Wednesday night, multiple reports said, while authorities imposed a citywide after-dark curfew to quell the violence and looting that erupted following a police-involved shooting. The vehicle was found at Logan Circle in the Center City neighborhood, WPVI reportedPolice told the outlet they recovered propane tanks, torches, and what may have been sticks of dynamite.


What if the Nov. 3rd election is a train wreck, with no practical way to account for vote numbers or vote fraud?

Congress could exercise its constitutional authority to establish common sense procedures respecting the “Time, Place and Manner” of voting in the upcoming elections.  For example, Congress invalidate the Nov. 3 election and set a date for a new one, passing a law providing that:

·       Every registered voter who wants to vote must physically appear at his officially designated place of voting and produce proof of identity.

·       The new Election Day should be one day – not weeks and months before and after the date set for the election.

·       The voting should be done on paper at the precinct.

·       The ballots should be counted by party representatives after the polls close.

·       Results should be posted on the wall of the precinct after being reported to the clerk of the Senate.

·       Absentee voting should be restricted to those who are out of the Country or out of State due to military service, service in the diplomatic corps, missionaries stationed overseas, or businessmen stationed overseas.


These are the kinds of questions and subjects that we explore ion the Stand Up And Lead Podcast, which you can check out by clicking here or on the graphic below.




1. “For many in the firearms industry, the Biden campaign’s rhetoric is personal. “They called us the enemy,” Alan Rice says. “Look, I spent 25 years in the Marines. I served active duty in the Middle East. And Joe Biden called me the enemy. Our industry is full of veterans, and he called us the enemy. We take him at his word.”  There are more privately-owned firearms in this country than there are private citizens. Those firearms are distributed among 40 percent of American households, and that percentage is growing rapidly. On this issue, at least, Mr. Biden is badly out of step with American voters. According to Gallup, 56 percent of us want gun-ownership rights to be relaxed or stay the same. That number, too, is growing."

Michael Warren Davis



2. “After I was doxed by Pro Publica, I began keeping tabs on various antifa and communist paramilitary groups in my state. I was shocked to see how openly and brazenly they would conduct “intelligence” on my whereabouts, my family members, where I worked, and they would publicly express intent to assault and kill me.”  -- Former Marine Vasillios Pistolis, who was expelled from the Marine Corps for showing honor to General Robert E Lee.  Pistolis was denied a carry permit by his local sheriff because he had attended a rally dubbed by the media as “a white supremacist rally.”



3. “Technocracy is an economic system of resource allocation that revolves around technology — in particular artificial intelligence, digital surveillance and Big Data collection — and the digitization of industry and government, which in turn allows for the automation of social engineering and social rule, thereby doing away with the need for democratically elected leadership.”  

—  Dr. Mercola



4. “Are you in favor of cancel culture? The Democratic Party is addicted to it. Should livelihoods and reputations be destroyed for expressing an opinion, or telling a joke? Is asking someone for a date in the office a firing offense? Were Christine Blasey Ford and Michael Avenatti unimpeachable witnesses during the Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS hearings? Or was that just an instance of anything goes and nothing matters? How much sadistic pleasure do you suppose has been involved in the professional ruination of men in the media, the arts, and politics? How much of cancel culture and the Me-Too movement have been based on simple coercion, the wish to push other people around, and on vengeance for personal losses and slights?"

— William Kunstler



5. “There’s a difference between being politically black and being racially black. Being politically black means being a political black activist in a particular way. A concrete example of this that played out was when Kanye West put on the Make America Great Again hat and said that he thinks for himself. And then Ta-Nehisi Coates, a very famous author who wrote “Between the World and Me,” said that he’s no longer black because he’s not politically black; he’s not taking the correct political positions.”

— James Lindsay


6. “The Second Amendment…fosters the kind of civic virtue that resists the cowardly urge to trade liberty for an illusion of safety. Armed citizens take responsibility for their own security, thereby exhibiting and cultivating the self-reliance and vigorous spirit that is ultimately indispensable for genuine self-government. As the Supreme Court develops the nascent jurisprudence of the Second Amendment, they have an opportunity to show that they understand how a robust right to keep and bear arms serves both individual freedom and civic virtue. If they fail to do that, they will help the nation take significant step toward the soft despotism to which Tocqueville feared we would succumb.”  


— Nelson Lund



7. “My tweet was intended to emphasize that border security is national security. Ironically, as they’re having a hearing on Capitol Hill on this very issue, Twitter employees were actively censoring another administration official. This should outrage every American citizen, because they didn’t lock me out, they locked you out. They imposed their own ideology, their own belief system, to justify keeping the truth from the American people.”


Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan, who was suspended from Twitter on Oct. 28 after stating that the wall helps stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering the country.

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.


 

Wisdom, the ability to discern between right, wrong, and almost right, is available to those who ask believing.  James 1:5-8
