The kneejerk response of every leftwing politician is to introduce a shiny new federal program to address every problem under the sun. Just throw more money at it.
It sounds ‘compassionate’ and had the veneer of ‘doing something’ about a stated problem. But more often than not, either it fails to solve the problem it was designed to address or (even worse!) it creates a bigger problem than the one it was intended to solve.
But before the era of big government came along, we had a different approach to unexpected crises. Communities would come together, bring whatever ideas, resources and personnel they had to bear on solving the problem, and once it was solved, everyone could go on with their day.
Any ‘evacuation plans’ the federal government has suggested for Americans abroad have been a hot mess. It has taken the individual action of individual people to step up and help solve this crisis.
Florida Congressman Cory Mills hopped a flight to Israel to help shepherd Americans home again while their own government left so many of them to their own devices.
Cory Mills rescued nearly 100 Americans out of Israel, caught a flight back for another 219 Americans and then got home in time to vote for Jim Jordan on the House floor today.

DeSantis has empowered his administration to arrange flights out of the war zone, as well.
A second flight bringing more Americans who were stranded in Israel back home has arrived.
Florida has stepped up to assist our citizens in need.

Vivek, too, is helping the evacuation effort. He’s kicking in his own money to get an entire planeload of Americans home again… and he’s challenging others who can afford such efforts to step up and do the same.
America First includes *all* Americans. I’m putting my money where my mouth is: If Biden can’t or simply won’t get Americans out of Israel, Apoorva & I are taking matters into our own hands by funding a 200-person private flight to get our fellow Americans to safety. pic.twitter.com/AOySGPxES4

Vivek used his money.
Mills used his organizational skills.
DeSantis used the government resources at his disposal.
Meanwhile, Team Biden?
Yeah. That’s a whole other story.
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
