Biden to Address Joint Session of Congress Next Wednesday When the House is Not in Session and Republicans are Back Home

Newsmax.com reports that

President Joe Biden will give his first address to Congress as commander in chief on Wednesday, but according to a New York Post report, increasing numbers of Republicans appear poised to miss it.

The timing is a big part of the issue: On Wednesday, the Senate will be in session but the House will not. Many members of the lower chamber, back home in their districts and taking part in committee work virtually, find themselves in a bind, said the Post.

Logistics for the speech were being overseen by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Several Republican lawmakers have asked Pelosi to reconsider a time when both the Senate and the House are in session.

According to the New York Post, Rep. Claudia Tenney wrote a letter to Pelosi about the timing of the event. Tenney also asked that Pelosi allow all members to attend, instead of inviting only some from each party in the name of pandemic-appropriate social distancing:

“In our nation’s history, it is unprecedented to convene a joint session of Congress such as this without extending an invitation to all Members of Congress. We understand the need to prioritize the safety of Members and believe strongly that with the right precautions and social distancing measures a space designed to accommodate almost 1,000 individuals can operate at about 50 percent capacity to safely accommodate all members of the House and Senate who attend.”

Pelosi has not responded to the letter.

Invites for the event, evenly distributed between Democrats and Republicans, are being doled out by the leader of each caucus, a Capitol Hill official told The Post.

What’s more, though, Punchbowl News reported this week that a considerable number of lawmakers, asked if they wanted to attend, said no or offered no answer at all.

“Not that I’m aware of,” Sen. Joni Ernst, Iowa Republican and member of the party leadership, replied when asked if she planned to go, the Post article said. “I don’t think I’ll probably attend.”

“I don’t know the answer to that,” Sen. Josh Hawley, Republican of Missouri said in a similar vein, the Post said. “I haven’t decided.”

Some Republicans did express a desire to go, though.

Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina said, “I don’t agree with his policies, but he’s a fine man.”

“I would frankly prefer to go. I think the whole House should be there,” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio was quoted as saying. “He’s supposed to be talking to Congress.”

So, San Fran Nan is in charge of the logistics.

Well, that explains everything.

The traditional time for the President to initially speak to a Joint Session of Congress, otherwise known as The State of The Union, has always been in February.

So, why IS Biden finally getting around to it at the end of April?

Good question.

Here’s my best answer:

This is on purpose.

As the above article noted, the Republicans in the House will all be back in their Home District, leaving Biden to face a very friendly audience. One who will stand up and cheer every stupid thing that he says.

This address has been purposefully scheduled that way because the President of the United States of America is a dementia-riddled doddering old fool who is being “handled” like a marionette by members of the Obama Administration, including Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, and Barack Hussein Obama, himself (mm mmm mmmm).

Biden is in such bad shape that they had to send Kamala Harris to meet with the Japanese Prime Minister when he came to Washington last week.

The Republican Members of the House know what is going on.

The Democrats are pulling a power play, trying to make the Republicans look bad by choosing to stay home instead of jumping and running back to D.C. to hear Biden spout off about a bunch of far Left Unconstitutional Bills, Programs, and Executive Orders designed to send this Constitutional Republic right into the Communist Crapper (Yeah, I said it!).

I would not come, either,

Talk about questionable timing..

The timing stinks on ice, just like the whole “Biden-Harris Administration” does.

Oh, and “Miss Lindsey”, Hunter’s Dad was never a good man.

He has been a Washington Swamp Creature for 50 years and he is not about to change now.

And, you just showed your true colors.

All show and no go.

Until He Comes,

KJ

Franklin Graham Compares 10 House Republicans Who Voted for 2nd Trump Impeachment to Judas Iscariot

See the source image

I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.
– Ronald Reagan

ChristianPost.com reports that

The Rev. Franklin Graham took to social media to slam the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach President Donald Trump, comparing them to the infamous Judas Iscariot.

“Shame, shame on the ten Republicans who joined with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in impeaching President Trump yesterday,” Graham wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. “The House Democrats impeached him because they hate him and want to do as much damage as they can. And these ten, from his own party, joined in the feeding frenzy. It makes you wonder what the thirty pieces of silver were that Speaker Pelosi promised for this betrayal.”

By referencing “thirty pieces of silver,” Graham seemed to be suggesting that the 10 House Republicans who supported Trump’s impeachment were akin to Judas Iscariot, a disciple of Jesus Christ who betrayed him to the Roman authorities in exchange for 30 pieces of silver.

While Graham did not mention them by name, the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump were Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., Rep. Peter Meijer, R-Mich., Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio, Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

According to Graham, these Republicans’ votes to impeach the president for “incitement of insurrection” constituted a betrayal because of “all that he has done for this country.”

“We have never had a president like him in my lifetime. He gave us lower taxes, a strong economy, and low unemployment. He made NATO take notice and pay their own way. He had the guts to take on North Korea and meet with their leader personally. He didn’t let China walk all over us. Just his Mideast peace initiatives in the last couple of months deserve a Nobel Peace Prize,” he said.

“He has defended religious liberty like no president before him, and that matters to all people of faith. He has worked to bring prison reform and secured our southern border. He defeated the ISIS caliphate in Syria, and he strengthened our military. He was also the most pro-life president we have ever had.”

“The Democrats have been trying to get rid of the president since the day he took office. What they did yesterday only further divides our nation. I hope President-elect Biden will keep his word and work for unity as he has said,” he concluded. Graham has called for Trump, whose term expires Jan. 20, to meet with President-elect Joe Biden, contending that such a meeting would “begin the healing and preparation for a smooth transition.”

He also requested that Vice President-elect Harris as well as Biden’s and Harris’ respective spouses be invited to the meeting.

In addition to praising the president’s record, Graham announced that he took issue with “some of the things the president said and did the last couple of weeks,” referring to Jan. 6 as “a low point in his presidency.”

On Jan. 6, hundreds of fringe Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was certifying the electoral college votes of the 2020 presidential election, unleashing violence and vandalism that left five people dead.

The events of Jan. 6 ultimately led to the president’s impeachment, as House Democrats argued that a speech he gave to his supporters urging them to continue protesting the election results incited them to resort to violence.

Violence at the Capitol erupted while Trump was still speaking to hundreds of thousands of his supporters at the Ellipse near the White House before they were to walk to the Capitol for a separate rally where other speakers were scheduled to speak. That event, however, never took place because the riot had already ensued.

Graham condemned the violence, remarking that he was “deeply saddened by what took place in our nation’s capital.”

“Our country is in trouble. We need God’s healing and we need God’s help. Pray for peace and the protection of our nation. Let’s come together — on our knees,” he added.

Unfortunately, Rev. Graham, I do not see that happening anytime soon.

It is going to be impossible for 74 million Americans to forgive Joe Biden, his handlers, and the rest of the Democrat Elite for stealing the 2020 Presidential Election and leaving them disenfranchised.

This country has been pulling apart at the seams since the night of November 8, 2016, which Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President.

And the thing is, it is not his fault.

The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.

It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.

The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war not just against the Chinese Coronavirus, but also against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels and our country’s failing Liberal Newspapers like the New York Times. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the riots and escalating murder rates in our Democratically-controlled major cities every night, to those so filled with hate that they rough up a 7 year-old boy simply because he is wearing a Trump baseball cap, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so, if allowed to do so, it would lead to America’s downfall.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

Now, more than ever, facing the aftermath of a rigged Presidential Election and an ongoing Chinese Coronavirus pandemic, our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday as we finish watching church services on the internet via our Smart TVs.

“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”

Because believe me, Americans…we are in one with three enemies. Two enemies are invisible and one is political.

And, while we can do all things through the One who strengthens us, we can do nothing worthwhile without Him.

Pray for those who are out “on the front line” fighting the Chinese Coronavirus every day and caring for those who are sick with it,

Pray for President Donald J. Trump and his family.

Pray for our country.

And, please God, protect America from those who would attempt to make us worship “The State” instead of You.

Until He Comes,

Schiff Tells Republicans They Cannot Bring Up “Sham” Hunter Biden Investigation in Ukraine Hearings. Irony is Embarrassed.

FoxNews.com reports that

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff set the stage for the first public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry by vowing to keep questions at Wednesday’s lead-off session focused on the Ukraine controversy — in an implicit shot at Republican members who have signaled an interest in turning the tables on Democrats as they defend President Trump.

“It is important to underscore that the House’s impeachment inquiry, and the Committee, will not serve as venues for any Member to further the same sham investigations into the Bidens or into debunked conspiracies about 2016 U.S. election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to undertake for his personal political benefit,” Schiff,  D-Calif., wrote as part of a memo and letter to colleagues on procedures for the open hearings.

Notably, he cited rules for the investigation that would keep it focused on alleged attempts by the president to seek politically advantageous investigations from a foreign government, and whether he sought to cover it up.

The first hearings in the public phase of the impeachment inquiry will feature testimony from State Department official George Kent and top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine Bill Taylor on Wednesday. Later this week, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich will appear.

“The House’s inquiry into whether grounds exist for President Trump’s impeachment has been, and will continue to be, a sober and rigorous undertaking,” Schiff wrote to both Democrat and Republican members of the committee, vowing that the public hearings will adhere to House rules governing the impeachment process and that participants will be “treated fairly and with respect, mindful of the solemn and historic task before us.”

Schiff outlined some of the rules, including that members not assigned to the Intelligence Committee are not permitted to make statements or question witnesses, but are allowed to sit in the audience; there will be “equal time” for  himself and Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., to make opening statements; and there will be five-minute questioning segments for both parties.

The formal rules approved by the House last month also gave Republicans the ability to subpoena witnesses — they sent over an extensive list of requested witnesses over the weekend.

But the Democratic majority has the final say. And while Schiff said they are reviewing the Republicans’ list, his statements Tuesday signaled he would not be inclined to entertain witnesses or questioning that would shift focus to anything other than the allegations against Trump.

Republicans, though, have shown an interest in digging deeper into allegations against the Bidens, which is what prompted Trump’s request to Ukraine in the first place — eventually triggering the impeachment probe.

As I was writing this post last night, some Liberal Talking Head was on Fox News saying that Hunter Biden was not relevant to the hearings, and that the testimony of “the Whistleblower” was not necessary because “several people had corraborated the “fact”that President Trump had asked for a “quid pro quo”.

Now, I don’t now what that dude had been smoking prior to his appearance, but his reasoning was a faulty as Schiff’s Fictional transcript of President Trump’s phone call.

Just like in case of the Russian Collusion Delusion, the Democrats are so desperate to damage President Trump that they are will to lie to the American people by presenting garbage which they have made up as “facts”.

As far as I know, there have been no first-hand accounts of the actual phone call between the 2 leaders, other than those which have come from the President Trump and the President of Ukraine.

Even the account given by the Whistleblower, CIA Employee Eric Ciaramello was second hand.

By the way, I do not know what Schiff and the Democrats are still attempting to “protect the Identity” of the Whistleblower.

He has been identified already. Don’t they follow the news or, at least, Facebook?

The Dems have intentionally rigged the rules of these public hearings in order to keep control of the phony narrative that they have hung their hopes for removing President Trump from office on.

However, just as their Star Witness in the Russian Collusion Delusion Hearings, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, turned out to be a doddering old man and their witness in the Kavanaugh Hearings and Christine Blasey Ford turned out to be a liar, so will this unproven and unwarranted “Impeachment Inquiry” turn out to be another fiasco caused by the Democrats’ out-of-control temper tantrum over Trump winning the 2016 Presidential Election, which has lead to the psychological condition known as Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I have a feeling that these hearings are going to turn out to be very interesting.

Schiff and his fellow Hose Democrats are about to reveal themselves for who they really are.

The American public has not had the opportunity to see so many rear ends on display since the “Girls Gone Wild” Infomercials were canceled.

Until He Comes,
