Capitol Ministries’ Ralph Drollinger Expands Right-Wing Bible Studies Within Trump Administration

Capitol Ministries’ Ralph Drollinger Expands Right-Wing Bible Studies Within Trump Administration 

Earlier this week Right Wing Watch reported ​that Drollinger called elections a “spiritual battle” and said that only “mature” Christians are ideal candidates for public office. As RWW noted:

In previous writings, Drollinger has demonstrated little respect for Christians who interpret the Bible differently than he does. He has called the “social Gospel” that motivates millions of liberal American Christians “a perversion of scripture” and “not Christianity whatsoever!” He has called Catholicism “one of the primary false religions of the world.” He urges public officials not to take part in “syncretistic” events like the National Prayer Breakfast, arguing that by participating in events that combine different forms of belief, attendees invite God’s wrath rather than his blessing.

In “Oaks in Office,” his handbook for public officials, Drollinger wrote that “the critical and preeminent duty of the Church in an institutionally separated society” is “to evangelize and disciple—to Christianize—the leaders of the State and its citizenry.”

Trump administration officials have helped Drollinger raise money for the group, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has opened doors to help Drollinger set up shop in foreign governments.

Notice how they are now pushing this militant Christianity on not just department head leaders, but now on their subordinates.   The DOD just announced that officers can preach and share their faith with young enlisted, regardless of what the religious faith of the enlisted the officers are pushing Christianity on.   Do you see how Christian religious people have not only crept into government but are not happy unless they can force their doctrine on others.   It is not about their faith, their religious rights, it is about forcing others to worship the same god and obey the same religious rules they do.   Welcome to their golden dream, a theocracy.   I have read people calling them the US Taliban.    Hugs

DeJoy Tells Judge Mail-Sorting Machines Can’t Be Reassembled

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-09-24/dejoy-tells-judge-mail-sorting-machines-can-t-be-reassembled

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy told a judge the U.S. Postal Service can’t reassemble the hundreds of high speed mail-sorting machines that were taken apart this year, a project that more than a dozen states allege was intended to undermine the upcoming election.

nationwide injunction issued last week in Yakima, Washington, should be amended to acknowledge that the machines can’t be put back together, DeJoy and the USPS said in a filing in the case on Wednesday. The machines, dismantled under a DeJoy initiative, were stripped for parts to improve or repair other machines, they said.

“It is therefore not possible to return such machines to service,” the USPS and DeJoy, a major Republican donor, said in the filing.

In his Sept. 17 ruling, Bastian blasted the USPS changes, saying it was “easy to conclude” that DeJoy’s effort was intended to disrupt and challenge the legitimacy of the Nov. 3 election. The judge noted that 72% of the decommissioned high speed mail-sorting machines were located in counties where Hillary Clinton got the most votes in 2016.

There is more at the link above.   It is clear that they made sure the machines couldn’t be put back in service.   Some postal workers told of perfectly working machines taken apart, deliberate destruction of parts, and dumpsters fill with the parts to be taken to landfills.    Again the Republicans know they are a minority, know tRump is hated, and are destroying our democracy to stay in power.    Hugs

Florida AG Orders Probe After Bloomberg Helps Felons

These people really hate to have people vote.   The cult of tRump / Republican party know they are a minority.   The know their ideas are unpopular.   They know most people, the majority doesn’t agree with them.   So they are trying hard to enforce minority rule as much and as long as possible.   When did these people start to hate democracy?   Was it when the religious took over?   Was it when they realized how much free money they could grift?   Hugs

Florida AG Orders Probe After Bloomberg Helps Felons

Florida AG calls for investigation into Bloomberg-backed felon voting rights effort

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/florida-ag-calls-investigation-bloomberg-backed-felon-voting-rights-effort-n1240848

Florida voters passed a measure in 2018 to restore voting rights to felons who have not been convicted of murder or sexual offenses and who had completed their sentences. Republicans in the state legislature responded by passing a law in 2019 requiring those felons to pay any outstanding fines and fees to consider their sentence complete. Voting rights groups sued over the law, comparing it to a poll tax, but an appeals court earlier this month ruled the law was constitutional.

“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right. Working together with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, we are determined to end disenfranchisement and the discrimination that has always driven it,” Bloomberg said in a statement on Tuesday after the initiative was announced.

Bloomberg spokesman Jason Schechter responded to the pushback by saying, “This transparent political ploy is just the latest example of Republicans attempting to keep Floridians disenfranchised.”

The Election That Could Break America

If the vote is close, Donald Trump could easily throw the election into chaos and subvert the result. Who will stop him?

There are hundreds of quotes I could take from this article and still not do it justice.  Reading it made my blood run cold.   This is a well thought out article about the election and what comes next.   Please give it a read.   It terrifies me even more with GBG dying.   Hugs

 

Do you think they do not care about democracy now!!!

Trump Supporters Disrupt Early Voting in Virginia

A group of Trump supporters waving campaign flags disrupted the second day of early voting in Fairfax, Va., on Saturday, chanting “four more years” as voters entered a polling location and, at one point, forming a line that voters had to walk around outside the site.

County election officials eventually were forced to open up a larger portion of the Fairfax County Government Center to allow voters to wait inside away from the Trump enthusiasts.

Election officials said that the group stayed about 100 feet from the entrance to the building and, contrary to posts on social media, were not directly blocking access to the building. But they acknowledged that some voters and polling staff members felt intimidated by what some saw as protesters.

 

“Citizens coming into and leaving the building did have to go by them,” Gary Scott, the general registrar of Fairfax County, said in a statement. “Those voters who were in line outside of the building were moved inside and we continued operations. Some voters, and elections staff, did feel intimidated by the crowd and we did provide escorts past the group. One of the escorts was the county executive.”

 

Bryan Graham, the chairman of the Fairfax County Democrats who was also at the polling center, saw it differently, writing on Twitter that “the Republicans are straight-up attempting to intimidate voters at the government center.”

In an interview, Mr. Graham said he’d “never seen or heard of anything like this happening before.”

“I was there when the county executive was there and I saw him walk multiple people through the crowd because they didn’t feel safe,” Mr. Graham said. “I don’t think it’s appropriate. We shouldn’t be doing things to make people feel unsafe.”

Steve Descano, the county attorney, did not directly address the demonstration in a statement posted to Facebook on Saturday, but said that he was “instructing my office to pursue cases of voter intimidation that may occur.”

Virginia election law states that it is illegal to “hinder or delay a qualified voter in entering or leaving a polling place,” and that it is also prohibited to perform any kind of political advocacy within 40 feet of any entrance to a polling place.

Videos of the demonstrators quickly went viral on social media, and show them gathering outside the entrance, holding up Trump campaign signs and chanting as voters walked past them.

 

Trump Cultists Intimidate Virginia Early Voters [VIDEO]

Thugs and gangs, this is what the tRump cult is now.   Laws do not matter nor does fair play.   Only their power and right to power.  They are a rude minority acting as if they were the only ones that matter in the country.   Hugs

Long Island student who keeps showing up for school on remote days suspended for a year

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-teen-suspended-for-a-year-after-protesting-remote-learning-20200915-qnpksvo3mzayvis7diu6kytw5q-story.html

A Long Island student has been suspended for a year after repeatedly defying his school’s remote learning schedule, insisting that classes should always be held in person — even during a pandemic.

The 17-year-old was initially suspended for five days last week after attending in person-classes when he was scheduled for remote learning. He continued to defy school officials and appeared in person again last Wednesday and Thursday, resulting in an arrest on criminal trespass charges.

The William Floyd School District has set up a hybrid learning schedule to lower the number of students attending classes in person, an effort aimed at reducing their exposure to coronavirus in accordance with state guidelines.

But Stow continued to protest the decision and even picketed outside the school Monday, arguing that virtual learning is not good enough and that students should be in school every day.

“The written determination of the hearing officer was made after an exhaustive hearing at which numerous witnesses testified to Mr. Stow’s repeated insubordination and disruption despite being given multiple opportunities to avoid suspension,” the district said in a statement.

In an interview with WABC last week, the teen’s parents said they stood by their son and disagreed with the five-day suspension.

“Kids need to be in school every day. Virtual learning is not learning,” said his mother, Nora Kaplan-Stow. “My son is being suspended because he wants to be in school.”

But an online petition condemning his actions has drawn more than 2,000 signatures, many of which came from Stow’s own classmates.

In a statement following his arrest Thursday, school officials described his behavior as a “publicity stunt” and called his actions “irresponsible and selfish.”

“He arrived wearing a neon green shirt — for high visibility — with a contingent of media just outside the fence line trying to capture him getting arrested as he entered the building,” they wrote.

More at the link above.  Notice how he and his parents do not care about any other kid or teacher.   Notice he feels he is above the rules.   He seems to be trying to make a statement and I bet if you asked about his political leanings or his parents view of Covid 19, you would find he is a tRump supporting Covid denying asshole.   He lost a year / or a quarter of a year if he behaves of schooling to prove a political point while trying to claim he feels school is so important.   He doesn’t care about in person school, just as he did not care about the other students he would have displaced or put in danger.   A perfect little maga soldier.    Hugs

HHS Spox Calls For Gassing Reporters, Deletes Account

Fox News reports:

The top spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services deleted his Twitter in the aftermath of a late-night rant in which he suggested tear gassing journalists and battled with other users on the social media platform. Michael Caputo, who was using his verified Twitter account, commented “gas all of them” in response to a post by a self-described journalist who posted a video saying they were about to be tear-gassed.

In the Facebook Live video, reported by The New York Times, Caputo warned that left-wing hit squads would engage in armed insurrection after the election and said officials were engaging in “sedition” as they handled the pandemic. “You understand that they’re going to have to kill me, and unfortunately, I think that’s where this is going,” Caputo said, according to the Times.

There are a lot more tweets and information at the link above.   This is starting to seem a rather serious issue.   Either he is being directed to do this by the tyrant in chief or he is having a serious mental break down.    Either way I do not see any attempt to remove him or his blocks on the CDC telling the public the truth.   Hugs

Postal contracts awarded to DeJoy-run company were questioned in 2001 Postal Service audit

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/postal-contracts-awarded-dejoy-run-company-were-questioned-2001-postal-n1239990

The Postal Service audit found that the company may have cost taxpayers $53 million more than had the contracts gone through a bidding process.

A two-decade-old audit of mail equipment transport contracts by the U.S. Postal Service’s inspector general found that a company previously run by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was awarded multiple noncompetitive contracts by the Postal Service that may have cost consumers as much as $53 million more than if they’d been competitively bid.

The 2001 audit found that New Breed Logistics, a supply chain services provider based in North Carolina, was awarded more than $300 million in Postal Service mail equipment transport contracts that could have come in at a much lower price had they been shopped competitively to a range of vendors.

The audit raises questions about whether New Breed knowingly overbilled the Postal Service, and it renews scrutiny of the background and qualifications of DeJoy, a prolific Republican Party fundraiser and donor who was appointed to lead the Postal Service over objections from many officials involved in the selection process.

“It’s puzzling why it was not referred for investigation,” said former Postal Service Inspector General Dave Williams, referring to the conclusions reached by the audit. Williams was inspector general from 2003 to 2016.
