Letters to the Editor: Troublesome times for the president and voters
Wednesday, 01 July 2020 22:42

President Trump’s latest actions regarding his upcoming campaign rally in Tulsa where he claims 800,000 voters will attend is very troublesome, to say the least. 

Tulsa officials have warned of the COVID-19 dangers such a huge turnout can possibly end in a catastrophic spread of the dreaded disease. 

Trump doesn’t care. He’s only interested in numbers that make him look great. 

People don’t exist except when he’s searching for someone to blame for his failures. 

Lies, misinformation and hateful rhetoric are his traits, but he’ll deny it.  

It is imperative American voters must vote him and his corrupt administration out of office on November 3 lest we endure four more years of chaos fueled by his cheering and encouraging against virtually everything we hold dear and that includes our Constitution that he is trying to destroy and rewrite to his liking (like any dictator would).

Would you buy a used car from this guy?

“I went to law school on a full academic scholarship. The only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship. I went back to law school and was in the top half of my class. I was the outstanding student in the political science department at the end of my year. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school — a hundred and sixty-five credits, only needed a hundred and twenty-three credits.” Joe Biden’s own words. 

National mainstream news broadcasts (not exactly bastions of conservative thought) stated, “Biden now concedes he didn’t graduate in the top half of his law school class, he does not have three degrees from college and that he was not named the outstanding political science student in college.” 

Newsweek reported he actually went to law school on a half scholarship, ended up near the bottom of his class (ranked 76 out of a class of 85), and won only one degree, not three. 

Biden said, “Newsweek is right. My memory failed me.” 

I ask you, how can you get so many things wrong about your own past? 

He was much younger when he formed these lies. Biden has hijacked others oratory time and again without giving credit. It appears to be a documented trend. 

He also admits to plagiarism in law school! Five pages of someone else’s work! 

Commentator, “If they are going to do things that are stupid as well as immoral, then they are probably too dumb to have the job of president.” 

Don’t buy a used car from this guy, Biden! To those letter-writers who like to call presidential candidates by venomous names, please note that I didn’t call Biden “Basement Joe.”

Surely, all life matters; it's time to quit the killing 

For years, some on the left have been asking for a revolution to change America, supposedly for the best.

They have been working hard to change America’s values, from what has been   predominantly Christian values based on God’s morale laws.   

They have managed to turn great numbers of Americans against God, and His righteous commandments. 

It is to the point that we are now seeing what happens when Man abandons God — chaos, and a total disregard for human life, and of other people’s right to live safely and securely in their property.

The destruction of America and our way of life is well underway!  They have been working towards that end for years.

Their favorite cry is “racist.” But that is wrong because God created one human race, not many.  He did, in fact, create us all equally and loves us with the same love, that only God can have.  

They falsely claim that others are racist and that they would unite America. Their purpose is just the opposite. Their goal is to divide us so they can take control of America.  

To a great extent, they have replaced Christian (Godly) values, with Devil values, that are abomination to  a righteous God, the Creator.   

Several years ago, they started demonizing the police with the intent of destroying those who provide safety to our communities.  Since then, many decent law enforcement men and women have been murdered.  The blood spilled is on their hands.

The cry “Black life matters” needs to be changed to “All life matters.” Quit the killing! 

Please get off the streets and quit listening to those who are using you for political gain.  They support the ghastly murder of innocent born and unborn human babies and are headed for Hell.     

Follow God, not sin sick Man.

Young protesters praised

 

for holding to their ideals

 

Young Americans remind of Sophie Scholl, a 21-year-old German girl with the moral conscience and moral courage to wage peaceful, nonviolent resistance against Hitler and the Nazis in 1942-43, at a time when most German youths were cowed into obedience by the brutal arrests and brutal police interrogations and brutal executions they would face, if they got caught resisting Hitler and the Nazis.

 

But Sophie Scholl wasn’t cowed into obedience!

 

And when the Nazi police interrogator offered Sophie leniency if she would renounce her resistance against Hitler and the Nazis, and sign a legal document admitting her error in resisting Hitler and the Nazis, she could not, even if doing so would save her life!

 

“Why not?” asked the astonished and dumfounded police interrogator Robert Mohr.

 

“Because of my conscience,” replied Sophie.

 

I’m sure that in similar circumstances, today’s young protesters agaist institutional racism and police racism and racism in society and police brutality and police shootings of unarmed black men and seeking justice and dignity and equality for black Americans in similar circumstances to Sophie’s, would also reject a plea bargain on condition that they reject everything they are fighting for and against.

 

If, asked why not, I’m certain that, like Sophie Scholl, they’d answer, “Because of my conscience!”
