PRAYER MARCH 2020

Saturday, tens of thousands of people came to Washington, DC (on their own dime, not bused in by any deep pockets activists) to join the Rev. Franklin Graham for Prayer March 2020.

Some in the mainstream media mischaracterized it as a rally of Trump supporters, but aside from some MAGA caps (which actually stood for "Make America Godly Again"), it was not. In fact, the organizers requested that there be no political signs. And even though (whether by coincidence or Divine design) President Trump was nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the SCOTUS on the same day very close by, this was a nonpartisan event for anyone who was concerned about the direction our country is heading. As Rev. Graham said, "Let's exalt the name of Jesus Christ. Let's call upon the name of Almighty God. Repent of our sins and ask God to heal our land. And that He would work in the hearts of our politicians.”

If you weren’t able to attend, you can read more, see photos and watch the replay of the live stream on video (hosted by Cissie Graham Lynch and myself) at this link.

And here is more information on Prayer March 2020 and quotes from the speeches.

MUST-READ MINNESOTA VOTER FRAUD

Project Veritas just released a new undercover video expose of alleged voter fraud tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar. It involves accusations of vote buying and ballot harvesting to keep Omar and other members of the DFL (Democratic-Farmers-Labor Party) in power in Minnesota. This is a must-read, and more details are at the link.

Just a few lowlights: alleged ballot harvester Liban Mohamed is on video showing piles of ballots in his car and bragging about harvesting 300 that day for his brother, Minneapolis City Council member Jamal Osman (state law bars anyone from acting as a “designated agent” for more than three absentee voters.)

An anonymous whistleblower also claims that before the August primary, Omar’s ballot harvesters went to the Charles Horn Towers public housing complex and took every ballot from seniors there. She said, “They have perfected this system…They will tell you we are applying for your ballot. They take a picture of your Social Security and your driver’s license. They have a database. When the ballot comes, they track it. Sometimes, they make fake emails. They track the ballot. Then they come and pick up the ballot, unopened…They don’t give a (bleep) about any Somali…The DFL wants to win this state at all costs…and the victims is the Somali people.”

She also claims that young people and women were paid for their votes in the primary and that campaign operatives “were carrying bags of money…When you vote and they mark you off, then you get in the van, they give you the cash.”

Read the whole thing and get justifiably and non-partisanly furious. These tactics not only put corrupt politicians in power over all of us, they also cancel out legitimate votes and disenfranchise real voters. I have little faith in Minneapolis officials to investigate this (they’re too busy defunding their police department), but maybe it will finally convince FBI Director Christopher Wray that vote fraud really is a problem worth dealing with.

HYPOCRISY ALERT

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is under assault for having religious beliefs that leftists think will color her decisions. She already answered this attack brilliantly last year at Hillsdale College. Click this link and must-read her entire response:

In a nutshell, she pointed out that even people with no religious beliefs have personal moral convictions, and setting them aside is “a challenge for those of faith and for those who have no faith.” But it’s the job of a judge to set aside personal convictions and follow the law and the Constitution. She said it’s “a dangerous road to go down to say that only religious people would not be able to separate out moral convictions from their duty.”

In this one response, she not only shot down the loudest leftist objection to her (religious bigotry), but if they continue to press it, then they’ll be admitting that they want judges who don’t make rulings based on their personal beliefs. That would be both a tacit endorsement of non-activist judges and a rejection of all the reasons for which they are currently deifying Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

KUDOS WHERE THEY'RE DUE:

I don’t have much in common politically with Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, but on ABC’s “This Week,” he made some comments that deserve to be taken seriously by his fellow Democrats.

Other Democrats are throwing ridiculous allegations at Judge Amy Coney Barrett (including claiming she’s totally unqualified and suggesting she’s a racist for…adopting two black children?), and threatening to try to disrupt and delay her confirmation hearing with procedural tactics and general tantrum-throwing. But Durbin admitted that Democrats have no power to stop her confirmation, that "we can slow it down perhaps a matter of hours, maybe days at the most. But we can't stop the outcome."

Instead, he said, "I've met with every Supreme Court nominee since I've been in the Senate. I will extend that courtesy, if she requests it, for at least a socially distanced, safe meeting, perhaps over the phone. I want to be respectful. We disagree on some things. And in terms of participating in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, I'll be there to do my job."

Even more stunning, Durbin publicly refuted Hillary Clinton’s plea to Joe Biden not to concede the election under any circumstance (like she’s apparently never conceded that she lost in 2016, and this is what that kind of denial of reality does to your mind.) Durbin said, "I respect her, I like her. But I think she's just flat-out wrong. The election itself is going to be announced, the winner will be announced at some point. If we are going to maintain a democracy, peaceful transition through an election is the only way to do it. Whoever the winner is, if it is clear and legal, that should be announced and the other party should concede." (This is assuming that Hillary was not talking about dragging out the results while enough new ballots could be “found” to win.)

Durbin’s words are a refreshing throwback to a time when political differences took a backseat to the good of the nation, and when all Americans observed the great traditions that have made America such an exceptional nation, like accepting losses, respecting other people’s right to hold different views, working across the aisle and observing a peaceful transfer of power after elections. One of the silliest stories of the past month has been the accusation that if Trump lost, he might not accept the outcome and that would be a “constitutional crisis.” Would it be worse than all the Democrats who still haven’t accepted that they lost four years ago, and are willing to burn the Constitution over it, from blowing up the Electoral College to packing the Supreme Court? They’re like children who scream that no race is “fair” unless they win it.

These days, too many people not only ignore those traditions, they deny that America even has great traditions or is an exceptional nation at all. Yet the things they would replace our traditions with would reduce us to the level of “world’s biggest banana republic.”

May Dick Durbin’s wise words (and courage to speak them aloud) sink into his fellow Democrats’ craniums and inspire some long-overdue soul-searching. At long last, there’s an adult in the room. (Or at least there was until he started endorsing some of the proposed changes Democrats would make if they win back the White House and Senate, but we can all save him from himself by voting to prevent that.)

FOOLS AND THEIR MONEY DEPT:

The founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, Sir Maejor Page (not a typo), was arrested by the FBI on fraud and money-laundering charges for allegedly misappropriating $200,000 in donations. He’d pledged to use those donations “for George Floyd.” The FBI says he used them for food, dining, entertainment, clothing, furniture, a home security system, tailored suits and accessories and a $112,000 house (all for himself, not for George Floyd.)

PJ Media points out that, to be fair, the local branch of BLM had already branded him a con man, a camera hog and a “dangerous person with violent tendencies.” While those sound like job qualifications for many of today’s “community organizers,” they’d already thrown his group out of the Atlanta BLM branch.

That story also points out that in just three months this spring and summer, Page’s Facebook page raked in $466,000 in donations, and as PJ Media points out, it’s unclear if any of it went to any charitable endeavor at all. You might think, “Well, at least it improved one black man’s life,” but check out the Fox News link. I know nothing about his family background, but judging from his mugshot, he looks whiter than I am.

"THE MORE YOU KNOW..."

There are a lot of terms that today’s leftists toss around that they don’t seem to grasp the meaning of, like “Nazi,” “fascist,” “gender,” “impeachable offense,” “illegitimate” and “literally.” We’ll have to add “unprecedented” to the list. Every time Trump does something that many other Presidents have done, they thunder that it’s “unprecedented!”

The latest example is for him to nominate a SCOTUS Justice in an election year. As an example, I’ll cite one of the left's most prominent thinkers, actress Alyssa Milano, who tweeted, “Never before in our nation’s history has a Supreme Court Justice been nominated and installed while an election is already underway. It defied every precedent and every expectation of a nation where the people are sovereign and the rule of law reigns.”

Georgia GOP Chairman David Shaffer responded, “Except when Woodrow Wilson replaced the Chief Justice who resigned to run against him in 1916 or when Dwight Eisenhower appointed William Brennan three weeks before the 1956 election or when it happened a half dozen other times during a Presidential election year.”

The National Review’s Dan McLaughlin dug even deeper into the history. He writes, "There have been 29 such (election year) vacancies, and Presidents made nominations for all of them, in most cases promptly…In 19 cases, the President’s party held the Senate; 17 of the 19 vacancies were filled, the exceptions being the bipartisan filibuster against Lyndon Johnson’s nominees in 1968 and George Washington’s withdrawal and resubmission in the next Congress of a nominee who was ineligible to be confirmed (he’d voted to create the Court, and the Constitution made him wait until there was a new Congress seated). Nine of those 17 were confirmed before the election, and eight after. Three were confirmed in lame duck post-election sessions even though the President had just lost reelection.

If the Democrats would like some help in understanding what “unprecedented” actually means, I’ll use it in a sentence: “It would be unprecedented if one of today’s leftist celebrities did any research before tweeting.”

TWEET OF THE DAY!

From Townhall.com’s Katie Pavlich.

“Harvard professor Lawrence Tribe admits on Fox News Sunday that there is nothing unconstitutional about President Trump nominating Barrett and Senate moving forward and then says, ‘But there are a lot of things in the constitution that are stupid.’ Sums up the left’s view well.”

POTENTIAL GREAT NEWS

Potential Great News: doctors in Florida think they might have found a combination of drugs that cures the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus with nearly 100% effectiveness. The big question: will this finally entice Joe Biden to come out of his basement?

LOW BLOW

It’s become depressingly common for politicians to tar their opponents as Nazis, fascists or “literally Hitler.” This is not only slanderous, it’s reprehensible because it “normalizes” such characterizations and dilutes the meaning and horror of what actually happened in the Holocaust, comparing the death of six million Jews to a petty political disagreement.

Sadly, Joe Biden tried to put a new spin on this low blow by comparing President Trump to Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s minister of propaganda, and his claim that if you tell a big lie often enough, the people will believe it.

This is the latest and ugliest manifestation of the canard that Trump lies all the time (you know, about the FBI being out to get him, about not actually colluding with Russia, etc.) What makes it even more jaw-dropping is that it's being used as a reason for why we need to elect Honest Joe Biden, who aside from his family’s shady financial dealings has repeatedly changed positions, denied he knew about the anti-Trump plot that we know was discussed at a meeting he attended, and who has seen his presidential aspirations repeatedly sunk by incidents of plagiarism and lying about his own background, including his academic background. The latest example is one for which nobody’s been able to find any evidence, and I’m hardly surprised.

Delaware State just confirmed that they can find no proof of Biden’s 2019 claim that he attended that school. He was the commencement speaker twice and got an honorary degree, but no, he didn’t attend a historically black college.

I look forward to tomorrow’s debate, where I wonder if Joe will channel Steve Martin and tell the audience, “I started out as a poor black child…”

    It is so inspiring to see how many people responded and were able to attend the Prayer March 2020! At a time when the entire world is going through such stressful and difficult times, believers can make a difference because GOD answers prayer in HIS time. I was unable to attend, but still prayed with those who marched and feel certain many other believers did too. May GOD bless America, our President, his family, VP Pence and his family and may all elected officials start seeking GOD and HIS guidance for the decisions they make. May GOD bless you Mike and your family and thank you for your newsletters!

    Three things:
    1. I'm not sure but I think your defining and exampling the word unprecedented
    in one story as many times as you did, is unprecedented.
    2. Hones Joe is the a near perfect example of telling a lie long enough and it will
    be believed. He believes everything he is saying.
    3. Please do not disrespect Steve Martin like that, I happened to like that movie.
    :0) Blessings and peace Gov.

    It seems the left also does not understand being wrong is not the same as lying. You may believe something is correct, but it's not. When you state the belief, you are wrong, misinformed, in error, etc., but you are not lying.

    I am So pleased that so many people attended the Prayer March in DC. It gives me hope that the people of this great country deserve the blessings we have because we live here. We must continue to fight for the right things and pray continually for inspiration, and gratitude for Franklin Graham, and his father, the Reverend Billy Graham.

    Pray Pray all of us for the future and that voters know we have to vote again for President TRUMP. Is he an angel far from it? Does he know who the working people are YES! ASK VOTERS why we have not heard one Democrat call this horrible virus the CHINESE VIRUS WHY when it is? Not Trump virus . See Spain said it is the Chinese Virus and Italy very upset per the Chinese. Majority of the super rich are now Democrats per their business was profits per CHINA. Yet millions here lost good jobs ? So now they want to continue to let the Chinese run us and make their billions and athletes are richer like NIKE Ask WHY? Hong Kong needed the WORLDS HELP while these American Athletes sat by per they make millions off Chinese making their products? Beware VOTERS what is being said and by who? Many women they say that they are for Biden not the women I know . WHY he is not with the world anymore. Like they set him up and put a pole in his back. His phony smile and his botox or whatever face. Trump is tough his business was construction daily and building the business around the world. He had to be this way. He was bringing back our jobs . ASK VOTERS PLEASE WHY our DRUGS 80% come from CHINA who allowed this? I am an RN retired but did not know? We pay high here WHY?

    Now that the Trump Camp has put Biden Campaign into a total tail spin with having a complete body scanning done prior to them entering the Debate Stage has them reeling. Then Biden asking for two breaks during the Debate shows you that does not have the stamina to even go toe to toe with Putin or his Chinese Buddy. I predict he will come up with some sort of excuse to avoid having the debate tonight.

    My wife's family background goes back to Salem Ma. and the "quote unquote" Salem Witch Trials where her great 8 times grandmother and great 8 times aunt, who was taken from her death bed, were hung accused as being witches. After the whole affair was over everyone said they were sorry. Words can hurt you and lies do defraud. Look up the history of the "witch hunt" and my wife's Great 8 times grandmother Mary Towne Esty said "if my death stops the wrong then so be it". History shows that those that lie do not get away with it, that those lies follow them forever. "Jesus hold the layer accountable and see that Your Justice is done. In Jesus name Amen".

    Thank you for the reminder of MAKE AMERICA GODLY AGAIN. It's not Trump ( although he has done and hopefully will continue to do a wonderful job) , nor is it the 51% percent Senate majority or the quarterly financial reports, but it is the Holy Lord God Almighty that will save this country from the ruin that it so richly deserves. We have not been faithful to our GOD and he has continued to be faithful to us! Dear GOD, please turn our hearts back to you!

    The Greatest Generation is looking at each other today probably heads looking downward and are shocked that the offspring of their Generation is hiding under the beds while thugs illiterate members of society burn steal destroy property of the very cities they live in. Like the saying goes they are shitffing in the beds they sleep in even at my age if the thugs came to my property to destroy although elderly I would take a stand just like the Greatest Generation did when the soldiers went to protect our country in WW2 and save others from thugs illiterates that destroy and kill. After all what do I have to lose I defended our country once i sure will defend my property now for my children and grandchildren I would leave a proud legacy behind of just being good not one of cowardice.

    Dear Governor,
    Your article on the ballot harvesting in the Minnesota metro area does not surprise me. I hope there will be a major investigation (even by an outside source like Projects Veritas and/or Judicial Watch), indictments, and legal law suits....that will probably be the only way it is really forced to "shut down" and those Democrats responsible are charged.
    The 3 or 4 sanctuary cities in the MN metro area are "ripe" for this type of voter fraud.
    AND...this explains what SHOULD have been investigated in 2018 when there were a recorded newly registered 256,000 voters in MN....at least TEN of which were age 100 or over!
    There is a phrase called "Minnesota Nice"... and this really does exist in our culture in MN. However, most of outstate MN and many unaware in the metro areas, do not see the "big picture".
    Always emphasized to everyone is to be kind to others (a good thing)....but not when there are enemies within who work tirelessly to fool Minnesotans into believing these people are something they are not....in fact, our "sanctuary cities" have developed a powerful group of people who (through lies and deceit) are trying to change our state and national government into exactly that government from which they fled...they want our Constitution, our American way of life removed....and Sharia law implemented.
    Even one of the parts of the Quran states that if it aids their cause, islamists can do just about anything to fool Christians and others into believing they are not who they really are, allowing Islamic people to even wear crucifixes around their necks in that endeavor!
    WAKE UP, MINNESOTA!!!!

    Hi Mike! Keep telling the truth. I get a little fired up listening to MSM. It's not good for my heart rate.
    Here is my response to a recent article. Just my observation and opinion. The Democrats are posturing. Claiming to have the power to negate and delay the nomination of Amy B. In reality? A fart inside of a highly ventilated plastic bag would be far more effective. The "smell" will linger and that will be the only aspect that remains for voters to ascertain.
    Also, for Democrats to label Joe Biden as a "moderate" is like labeling "Atila the Hun" as a humanitarian.

    Corporations are destroying Main Street in cities around the country making huge donations to BLM and ANTIFA to Mayors Governors State AG they are changing America everyday by burning out smaller business everyday a small shop goes out of business big retailers restate corporations will by property till it owns the large majority of real-estate. In the meantime rioters burn and loot large stores and the insurance pays for the damage and loss no one is shopping so burn it down we'll rebuild if the economy and safety allows shoppers to come back. Leaving the country with more wealthy people as the billionaire club increases and the middle gets smaller. and the country collapses. Hello China The CCP says keep rioting. America keep your head in the sand it will be over soon Stand up Americans protect each other and your property your police in cities around the country are standing down.

    How in the world are they going to come up with an honest election when there are thousands of ballots (maybe millions) harvested or bought or scared out of the hands of the elderly and who knows who else? People shouldn't vote for Biden on even just ONE of his ideas: to lockdown the country. It's like declaring martial law without seeming like a dictator...always blaming everything on the virus and not letting the true stats come out about it. Like 95% of even the elderly can recover. And now with the Florida "cure" and vaccine looming, Joe is living back in March. He can't accept the good things; he has to be the fearmongerer. However you spell that.

    We all must die some day, this was no different with Judge Ginsburg. Her chair on the Court did not belong to her but the American people. Her death was in God's hands as will be those of us all. In effect and reality, the judge's death was providential and I believe that our new Justice will help bring sanity back to the Supreme Court with the defection of Judge Roberts, especially with election fraud, packing the Supreme Court and devolving the Electoral College on the horizon.

    May God bless our nation and unite it again in love and honor.

Thank you for the words of Dick Durbin. At least one Dem has some sense and is not afraid to speak up.

    I really do believe that the major problem with the left is that they have been handing out participation trophies far too long. It is a "systemic" and "unprecedented" effort to make all losers winners in a program where all winners do their job and all losers cry and scream. You know, kind of like when President Trump won in 2016. I am, of course, being facetious and not making any attempt to be showing any sense at all. You know, kind of like Hillary, Biden and Pelosi.

    All these fraudulent ballots, so what is being done about it? I always thought it was One person, one ballot, one vote. I believe that in a National Election every State should abide by the same rules. States rights should only apply to local elections. President Trump is correct, there will be fraud, and the Democrats
    excel at it.

    Hip Hip Hurrah for Senator Dick Durbin! He and Tulsi Gabbard, are as far as I have heard from recently, are "actually" Democrats. Hope that we hear more from them in the near future! If not, then there will be no more political races between Republicans vs Democrats, only Americans vs Communists! I sincerely believe that "America" has risen to the occasion! Yes Governor, Faith is the "assurance" of things hoped for the "certainty" of things not seen! Glory to God and thank you for this America that we love Lord! We are willing to fight to keep her strong!
