  1. Now he thinks he’s a dictator.

    “Biden will make major COVID speech Thursday outlining ‘six-pronged’ plan based on more vaccine mandates and school policies

    President Joe Biden will make a major COVID address Thursday

    He will lay out a six-pronged strategy ‘working across the public and private sectors to help continue to get the pandemic under control,’ Jen Psaki said

    Asked about possible new mandates, Psaki said the White House would offer more details later about the plan

    The United States leads the world in COVID-19 cases and death and is struggling to get control of the highly contagious Delta variant

    Reuters data shows that more than 20,800 people have died in the United States from COVID-19 in the past two weeks”

    Imagine the outcry in the media over that many dead were Trump still in charge.

    But there’s a Dem there now, so nary a peep….

  2. Liar.

    But the “fact checker” does some serious gymnastics to explain to you why he didn’t mean what he said. He just “misspoke.” Freakin’ hacks.

  3. Here’s a 6-point plan for you, Joe, and you can toss in a couple more (it has to be in this order so that the wrong person doesn’t become president):

    1. Pelosi resigns.
    2. VP Harris resigns.
    3. Dr. Fraud resigns.
    4. Top three echelons of military ‘leadership’ resign.
    5. Top three echelons of DOJ resign.
    6: Top three echelons of State Dept. resign.
    7. You resign.
    8. Bill China $10 trillion for CCP virus costs.

  4. This is worth a read beyond what I am quoting here. I am sharing this is both the daily thread and the news thread.

    “Let the wise pause and consider this: humble Christians will learn how to address evil in our world without doing evil to others in the process. They will seek honesty without animosity, truth without tirades, reason without rancor, engagement without malice, voice without vitriol, substance without slander, truth-telling without name-calling, vindication without vindictiveness. They will do all they can to avoid destroying others’ reputations or good name, while speaking the truth in love. . . .
    .
    There is simply a right way to treat people who are made in the image of God—even if they choose to be our religious or political enemies. Of all people, we Christians should be the most gracious, the most kind, the most respectful, the most welcoming, the most attentive, the most courteous of all toward all, no matter how close the friend or fierce the foe.”

  5. Our pastor loves debates. He has frequently engaged in them with atheists or other Christians on topics such as eschatology, most held at our church in evening programs (but one was held at Biola U as I recall). Several live on via videos on youtube or on our website.

    Kizzie’s post reminded me of something he always stresses for his own participation — to be gracious and, yes, even friendly, always personally connect with your debate opponent in a respectful and open way. Beating someone to a bloody pulp isn’t going to help your message (or you or your opponent’s mood, for that matter). If the goal is to persuade others, then a winsome approach usually is strategically a much better approach (but more importantly the more biblical one).

    I’m not a good debater, I’ve learned that from watching him. But it really is a joy to see him in action during those one-on-one events (and how his graciousness can itself disarm his opponents at times). His opponents are always worthy and sharp, as is he. Perhaps few minds are actually changed, but the interaction always ends with a smile and a handshake — and the hope is that folks go home with much to think about in new ways.

  6. Jesus: threw over tables, made a whip for cleansing, called people white washed tombs, but generally, yes, either an apparently calm correction or he left them to their own devices. His “discussions” seemed civil from his side even when the other side was rabid.

  7. It’s not only illegal, it’s downright immoral!

    A great win for Arizona and the USA!

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/tucson-pauses-covid-19-vaccine-mandate-after-arizona-attorney-general-deems-it-illegal_3987020.html

    “The city of Tucson has paused a mandate that ordered employees to get a COVID-19 vaccine or face five days of suspension and other discipline.

    Arizona’s attorney general said Tuesday that the mandate, imposed last month, was illegal because it violated an executive order that Gov. Doug Ducey unveiled earlier this year, in addition to a state law that is set to go into effect later this month.

    Mark Brnovich, the attorney general, warned Tucson officials that unless the mandate was rescinded, he would proceed with directing the state treasurer to withhold the city’s portion of state shared revenue until officials halted the policy.”

  8. They think they can change history by takind down a statue of Robert E. Lee.
    You have to confess, he was a great general, no matter which side you were on.
    Takind down a statue of a great man by little people is a product of the age.

  10. Why is that poll comparing white men with no degree with white women with a degree? Why doesn’t it include white men with a degree and white women with no degree? That seems quite odd.

    *******

    Jesus’ harsh words and actions were aimed at religious hypocrites or those who were defiling His Father’s house.

  11. Kizzie,

    To show the highest and lowest % in the poll is my guess.

    The 25% for NDM is the lowest support.

    The 52% for WWD is his highest support.

    They are a terrorists best friend.

    Obama releases them for a traitor, and Biden arms them.

    Dems built this fiasco.

  16. The Joe Biden administration is purging the federal government’s constellation of advisory boards and commissions of Donald Trump appointees, even though such people are typically appointed to fixed terms and are not removed by new presidents.

    Officials received a curt letter, one dated today, saying “Please submit your resignation to me by the close of business today. Should we not receive your resignation, your position with the Board will be terminated effective 6:00 pm tonight. Thank you.”

    The removals range from highly credentialed experts at obscure entities where politics are unlikely to be an issue, such as the Arctic Research Commission, to military service academies.

    In some cases, the Biden administration initially opted to refused to convene the commissions, including the National Board for Education Sciences — meaning the Biden administration chose to suspend a board dedicated to science in education during a year defined by schools’ attempt to grapple with how they should respond to the coronavirus, seemingly to ensure that no one tied to Trump would have a voice.
