Where have all those ‘Code Pink’ protesters gone now that their team is holding the reigns of power?

For all the crazy talk we heard during Trump’s presidency about ‘World War III’, Trump was the first President in literally decades to NOT embroil America in any new foreign conflicts.

That’s pretty rich. If you believe the Dems’ own rhetoric, just one year into his administration, Biden has managed to bumble his way into the ONE war America has spent the last seven decades trying to avoid.

Seth Moulton, a Marine, is an elected Democrat who claimed a little more than a week ago that we are ‘fundamentally at war… with Russia’.

The White House distanced itself from that statement in the days that followed.

Asked if the White House shared Moulton’s view of the nature of the conflict, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates was blunt: “No,” said Bates in a statement to The Intercept. “President Biden has been clear that U.S. forces are not and will not engage in a conflict with Russia. We are supporting the Ukrainian people as they defend their country, which is exactly what President Biden told Putin we would do if he invaded.”

The question of whether the U.S. is fundamentally at war against Russia through a proxy in Ukraine was raised as well by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who was asked during a press conference what the U.S. considered a success in the war. He said that the goal was for “Ukraine [to] remain a sovereign country, a democratic country, able to protect its sovereign territory.” But, he added, “we want to see Russia weakened to the degree that it can’t do the kinds of things that it has done in invading Ukraine.” Press secretary Jen Psaki later walked back the comments, saying Austin was talking about the U.S. objective to prevent Russia from taking over Ukraine and countries beyond it. —The Intercept

It looks like somebody never got the White House’s memo. Maybe even a lot of somebodies. Nobody told the guy most likely to replace Pelosi when she retires that we are not actually at war.

Here is Steny Hoyer casually asserting, as though it is an uncontested fact, ‘we are at war’. Lest anyone think it’s just a slip of the tongue, he said it more than once. (The thing he does get right in his larger context is that we DO need to produce energy.)

America DOES still have a Constitution, does it not? And that Constitution makes some things clear about the process whereby America needs to enter a war, doesn’t it?

[The Congress shall have Power . . . ] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; . . . —Constitution Annotated

Did Congress hold a vote the rest of us were never told about?

Was there a clause hidden in 10,000 pages of documents that we just overlooked?

Or have our elected officials given up on the Constitution altogether?

As for ‘blaming our President during times of war?’ Surely no Democrats ever did that during Bush’s time in office… right?

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
