Their is a segment of Americans that are Godless and in their Godlessness have embraced fascism, Trumpism and crime family anarchism. Nothing matters but winning and they have decided that America must become a one party nation with a Totalitarian ruler.
Who needs the Marxism and Liberlism of the Democrats when you have the self-destructive Republicans.
We have for decades looked down at the corrupt governments of Mexico and others but now here we are acting the same way.
The American experiment has not failed, Americans have failed!
We are corrupt, dishonest, selfish and foolish.
Guns over people is but one example.
As people of faith we must resist this whirlpool of pride and sin and maintain our Godly character, be honest, prayerful and humble.
Only focusing on Christ will save us from destroying ourselves. - Andy
Keep Your Eyes on the Prize: Defeating Trumpism
The testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson seems to have spurred parts of the public to consider anew what happened on January 6th: that the president of the United States attempted to overturn the results of an election by sending a mob—which he knew was armed—to the Capitol in order to interrupt Congress as it counted the electoral votes.
Donald Trump, many people now seem to think, is in trouble.
But the purpose of the House January 6th Committee is not merely to hold Donald Trump accountable. It is to hold the entire project of Trumpism to account.
Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony centered on the malevolent conduct of Trump and Mark Meadows.
By contrast, some others in the White House—White House counsel Pat Cipollone, deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato, acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien—seemed to be somewhat more responsible in their efforts to stop the cascading violence at the Capitol.
But at the same time, what had these people been doing in Trump’s orbit in the months leading up to, and then following, the election. During this long interregnum, Trump actively and publicly promoted lies, incited violence, and laid the groundwork for the eventual coup attempt of Jan. 6th.
According to Hutchinson’s account, many in the White House on Jan. 6th were horrified by the violence at the Capitol. Yet most of these people seem to have been fine with—and even complicit in—the events leading up to this violence. Some of them had accompanied Trump to the Ellipse knowing that he would join Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Mo Brooks, and others in the incitement of an angry crowd. So what was it that these members of Team Normal objected to, in the end? Was it merely the excessive anger and violence that boiled over? Were they basically onboard with Eastman’s legalistic fantasies that the Electoral College vote count might might be obstructed with only a minimum of disruption and violence?.." from the article: Keep Your Eyes on the Prize: Defeating Trumpism
The Big Lie Is Just the Pretext
"After the wreckage of Watergate, the conventional wisdom embraced the cliché that the coverup was worse than the crime. Actually, that’s still true. But we need to upgrade our hierarchy of horribles.
Politicians will always commit crimes, and some will try to engineer elaborate schemes of concealment. The sins of the powerful are with us always; their essential untrustworthiness was baked into our system of checks and balances.
“If men were angels, no government would be necessary,” James Madison would have tweeted. “If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself.”
This, of course, is the tricky part, because it assumes that the institutional and political restraints would hold, and that the American people would want them to.
But what if they didn’t?
What if we had a coup and a coverup, and nobody (by which I mean the GOP) cared?
In 2022, the real danger isn’t just the crime or the coverup, it’s the acceptance.
We know that the nation can survive insurrections and even attempts at obstruction of justice. But can it survive a shrug?
Polls continue to show that the majority of Republican voters still believe the Big Lie, and support Trump.
So what happens if one of the nation’s two dominant political parties decides that it doesn’t care? And is rewarded by the voters for its cynicism and moral nihilism?..' from the article: The Big Lie is Just the Pretext
