TRENDS TO KEEP IN VIEW

1.  Judicial Abuse and Lawfare

A Florida District Judge has taken parental rights from the mother of a young boy in the name of ‘health and safety,’ as the judge labeled the mother a ‘danger’ to the child after she posted a picture of herself on social media without a mask.  The judge is restricting her visitation until she is vaccinated, and until COVID is completely gone. In addition, the judge ordered that if the mother is to see her son, he must wear a mask at all times, despite an asthma diagnosis.

 

2.  Media Concealment of Islam and Jihad Denial

RELEVANT QUOTATIONS


“Our founding fathers did not establish the United States as a democratic republic so that elected officials would decide trivia, while all great questions would be decided by the judiciary.” — Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, U. S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (Dissent)

 

“Select judges who know the laws of God.” — Ezra 7:25

 

“The true reason why faith is given such an exclusive place by the New Testament, so far as the attainment of salvation is concerned, over against love and over against everything else in man...is that faith means receiving something, not doing something or even being something. To say, therefore, that our faith saves us means that we do not save ourselves even in slightest measure, but that God saves us.”  ― J. Gresham Machen

 

“Very many factors go to the building of sound morale…but one of the greatest is that men be fully employed at useful and interesting work. Idleness is a dangerous breeding ground.”   –Winston Churchill
