From My Heart

     There is a huge war going on in Congress over several issues that have been happening since the days of the Obama-Biden years. There is the Hunter Biden laptop and all the revelations that has exposed. It details the millions and millions of dollars received from Ukraine, Russia, and the Chinese Communist Party. There are hearings being held concerning the weaponization of the Justice Department. The higher-ups at the FBI, Homeland Security, and the Attorney General’s office are being investigated.

     The January 6th story is being investigated, and the plot of Pelosi, Schumer, the FBI, and the Capitol Police are slowly beginning to unravel. The whole issue of an insurrection is ridiculous, and once again, the Democrats pulled a fast one on the Republicans and the American people! Why were the Capitol Police waving people through barricades and unlocking doors for them? When asked about whether the FBI had agents “planted” in the crowd, the FBI director would not answer, saying there was an ongoing investigation into the events of January 6, and he cannot comment during an active investigation. That means, “Yes, there were FBI agents posing as Trump supporters in the crowd that gathered at the Capitol.”

     Investigations have begun in the two fabricated impeachment trials of President Trump, and the lying that went on by Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and Gerald Nadler. These three indicted Trump in the media day after day, accusing him of colluding with the Russians, and when the 30-million-dollar investigation was complete, the Mueller Report said there was no evidence of Russian collusion on behalf of Trump or anyone in his campaign. All of it was nothing but lies!

     And the list goes on and on of the many ways the press and the media did all they could to advance the agenda of the Democrats as they tried to get rid of President Trump. There is a connection between the White House and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, and others. When Elon Musk bought Twitter, he released files that have become known as the “Twitter Files,” and those files have proved the Democrats were giving orders to these companies to suppress anyone who expressed anything contrary to the Democrat party line!

     There are so many things happening all at once, and it will be interesting to watch how this all shakes out! Please be in prayer for our country! This corruption must be stopped, and America needs to stop this constant mutilation of our laws and of our Constitution.

     Our chili fellowship is this evening after church, so a special thanks to the Generations Class for hosting this event. Have a great day!

Pastor Norris
