The American Swamp 4

It puzzles me how any patriotic American with half a conscience could vote for Joe Biden.

There is evidence of corruption on Hunter Biden’s laptop reported by the New York Post. Toni Bobulinski has confirmed Joe Biden’s involvement providing evidence to the FBI and U.S. Senate. PJ Media reports that Kamala Harris may also be involved.

That various media sources refuse to report, distort or censor these stories suggest that this swamp is wide. They should all be investigated.

Many people who enjoy slandering Donald Trump don’t realize that they are being played. They are not themselves in the swamp. They have not been corrupted nor blackmailed by foreign interests. They have not received financial reward for the service of their hatred. They have just been deluded by these powerful swamp denizens. The swamp should be the focus of their energy, not Trump, but it appears they can’t even see it.

When these misguided people finally realize what’s going on, and refocus their energies where they should be, it will be amazing how fast we see this swamp drained with their righteous help.


I am a registered Democrat in Miami Beach, Florida. I recently mailed in my absentee ballot which has been received and counted. I voted for the President, Donald Trump. The entire process from mailing me the ballot to having it recorded as counted took 14 days.

At The Return a message from President Trump was read expressing his stand for America. I thank God for the protection and leadership that President Trump has provided, and will provide over the next four years, as President of the United States of America.

I am grateful that the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to confirm Amy Coney Barrett as U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The next step toward final confirmation is the full Senate vote.

Spooky Swamp

This woods is gorgeous, but it has a peculiar swamp.  

Those who’ve found it became wealthy from unethical dealings.  Envious of their wealth others found it.  They became wealthy, too, but at similar costs. If the swamp knew you might pay, it would appear to you.

Decades later their bodies putrefied.  Neighbors heard the screams. They prayed for a miracle that the curse of putrefaction be removed.  

A traveling preacher advised them, “Accept Jesus, repent and turn from your immorality.” They hissed back, “We’ll repent to any stupid God you like, but that money, our money, belongs to us.”

Fate

When things went well I'd rarely say
I ought to credit God or fate,
Statistically at any rate.
I took full credit for my day
At least when outcomes went my way.
The magic dust no one could see
I thought I sprinkled liberally.
I don't know why I gave up this.
I did. Perhaps it was that kiss,
That slap, of Grace that conquered me.

One-Liner Wednesday – The American Swamp 3

The Left will bring you down with their lies and destroy America.

Jon Voight, The Hill, October 17, 2020 (about 1:45)
Jon Voight, “Biden is evil.”

Linked to Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday.

If anyone votes for Joe Biden given the evidence of corruption Rudy Giuliani has discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop, shame on you.

For a summary of how the Democrats got into the position they are in see Don Surber’s commentary, “Why did they nominate Hunter Biden’s pop?” Selwyn Duke also notes that Joe Biden’s compromised position could be used by domestic blackmailers as well as foreign interests. To get further information, keep a tab open on your browser linked to Citizen Free Press. It will periodically update itself with the latest links.

Although I agree with Jon Voight that the manipulators who stand to financially gain on the Left are deliberately lying, the real problem is with the people who won’t gain anything, but who have allowed themselves to become addicted to the pleasure of hating Trump. They don’t realize that their uncritical attitude has turned them into sheeple propagating the lies of these corrupt politicians (for free).

Shadow Play

It's ominous when shadow play
Deceives and hides the truthful way.
We need good light and strength to seek,
But shadows love to keep us weak.

Sunday Walk 11

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Bliss

Ignore the pain. I do not miss
The pleasure out there tempting me.
Such blindness! How I failed to see
That there's a whole world more than this
With righteousness that brings pure bliss.
Manipulators walk around
With advertisements safe and sound.
Beware their busted sugar rush
Deceiving while our morals blush.
It sinks like dust on lifeless ground.

Field – Six Sentence Stories

The field was wide, but the path was narrow avoiding the mines.  We could sense the shadow of death through the destroyed tanks on each side of us, but this was the only way to get there.  Others depended on us and we depended on them to make the right decisions.  

We made it through the field before sunset.  Thanks to those who came before us and to those who came with us, we all did. 

During the battle that continued for three more weeks, and long after that, I was not the only one who felt joy that in spite of being broken we were still found worthy to serve.

One-Liner Wednesday – Weasel Reasoning

I label anyone who claims to be pro-life and yet votes for Biden as pro-abortion. There is no way they can weasel their way out of it.

If you go down in the woods today

Green is fading from the leaves.
Yellows, reds surround the trees.
They seem to know that winter nears
Approaching it with trust, not fears.

Linked to Cosmic Photo Challenge where Dale offers the theme of “if you go down in the woods today”. These photos were from Friday in Sunset Ridge Woods Forest Preserve.

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. I did nothing this past week with the 3x+1 problem. I don’t know if that is something worth a smile, but it did make me smile. The changing forest preserve was clearly worth a smile. I took so many photos yesterday, I used up the battery on my phone. Perhaps that was a sign that I took enough of them. It amazes me that the trees know winter is coming.
