Yesterday, Mike Pence said regarding the fallout from the Mar-a-Lago raid, “Calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police.” But as Tucker Carlson pointed out earlier this week, the Mar-a-Lago raid was an attack on the rule of law, not an attempt to enforce the law. Pence doesn’t understand the difference between a federal policing power that has been weaponized by radical Communist Democrats and local law enforcement deputies who report to an elected sheriff or a police chief appointed by an elected mayor. As Steve Bannon pointed out on his podcast, don’t defund the police, but definitely defund the police state!
Liz Cheney didn’t just lose her Wyoming primary on Tuesday—she lost bigly. According to CNN, her loss is one of the largest ever for a House incumbent, the second worst since the 1960s. CNN called it “part of a pattern this primary season pointing to former President Donald Trump’s strength within the Republican Party.” Cheney’s loss is the latest in a trend of previously popular incumbents losing to Trump-supported candidates.
Newsweek reported yesterday that the “true target” of the FBI raid was “documents that Trump had been collecting since early in his administration” that the DOJ was afraid he “might weaponize.” The stash apparently included documents relating to Russia collusion and 2016 election interference that exonerated Trump. It appears the FBI used the Presidential Records Act as a facade to recover incriminating documents that would expose its lawlessness.
The Bible says that the heart of man is terribly sick and deceitful (Jeremiah 17:9). The nations of Israel today are sick from head to toe (Isaiah 1:5-6), but instead of trying to hide it, we “declare our sin as Sodom” (Isaiah 3:9). In a sin-drenched world, we must not follow the crowd; instead, we must surrender to God and allow Him to clean up our lives, giving us a new heart that is like His.
