In response to public outcry about perceived injustices in the handling of the 2020 elections, citizens gathered in lawful protest in DC. As we know, that protest got out of hand and civil discourse has never been the same since.
The lesson we all learned from J6 was that we must maintain zero tolerance for angry mobs of people interrupting the sacrosanct floors where our representatives conduct the democratic process.
We know that was the lesson learned, because all of the talking heads on the media echoed the talking points of elected Democrats and their NeverTrump allies in affirming exactly that. January 6, 2021 was worse than Watergate, 9/11, and Pearl Harbor all rolled into one.
J6 kicked off the largest criminal investigation in the FBI’s history. We’ve learned things along the way about how aggressive these prosecutions have been. Like the various end-runs the feds made around 4th amendment protections, or the flimsiest of pretenses for opening investigations.
Prosecutors even stitched together footage of the complete movements of accused individuals from the time the arrived at the capital to the moment they left. But these ‘sizzle reels’ were not made available to the defendants.
We have seen public opinion beginning to moderate as we continue to learn more about ways in which the J6 investigations have played fast and loose with the handling of the rights of the accused.
Where is the zero-tolerance for insurrections now that it happened in Nashville?
On the same day that Alvin Bragg announced the indictment of Donald Trump over dubious charges even the left has been scratching their heads over, we saw the public rally over the too-familiar cause of banning gun ownership.
Like ‘Stop the Steal’ it was supposed to be an ordinary rally where crowds assemble with placards and let their grievances be known to legislators.
It started out that way.
And then they swarmed the Capitol.

They even *gasp* took over the sacred shrine of democracy or whatever…
More #Transurrection all over the US today.

Surely the DoJ is going to be all over this, right?
Interfering with the something-something orderly function of government, or whatnot?
It WAS strange, however, with Democracy in such grave peril, that none of the news networks seemed interested in covering this story yesterday.
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.
