1983 TRUMP PROPHECY: This is worth watching prayerfully all the way through [26:43] – The prophecy itself was simply this:

Right now, in the United States, there is a man who has the hand of God on him. He has the IQ of a genius and a first class education. And everything he approaches, he attacks with a blinding efficiency. His name is Donald Trump. God is going to use him in the future.”

BLUE LINE: [3:18] – Black Florida sheriff has an encouraging message for us and a no-nonsense message for would-be rioters.

A group of citizens in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has purchased ad space on billboards in the city to show their support for the men and women in blue, in an effort to push back against the attacks on the law enforcement community amid nationwide anti-police protests.

CHAZ/CHOP: [4:22] – On Sunday, dozens of protesters marched to the home of Seattle’s Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the occupied area alone or meet protesters’ demands.

These demands include a 50% cut to the Seattle police budget. They want the money routed to Social Services instead.

The mayor’s office issued a statement complaining about the protesters outside her home putting “families and children at risk.” That’s rich, coming from a woman who has NOT kept safe those families and children who reside inside the occupied zone.

Last week, after 3 shootings resulted in two wounded and one dead, Durkan said the area needed to be cleared out. Local police say rapes and robberies have also been reported inside or near the occupied zone.

As of Monday, the barricades guarding the area were still intact.

ABORTION: Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill that requires parental consent before a minor is allowed to obtain an abortion in the state.

It also strengthens penalties against abortionists who choose not to provide lifesaving care to infants who survive abortions.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Tuesday that a Montana scholarship program is protected by the Constitution, despite the fact that it indirectly provided state funds to religious schools.

Liberal judges Ginsburg, Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayor voted against, arguing that the whole scholarship program should be eliminated, because it can’t constitutionally provide benefits only to the parents of children attending non-religious private schools. In other words, Montana parents who choose, for whatever reason, to bear the burden of educating their children privately must be denied tax-based aid lest any of it go to a religious school.

This, despite the fact that our nation has decided that every single child in this country, including the illegal ones, have a right to his/her fair share of the available education tax dollars. Every. Single. Child. That’s why I’ve never had any problem with the whole idea of tuition tax vouchers being allocated equally to every child to be spent at the school of the parents’ choice.

Why should we care that some of it would go to a religious school? People of faith pay taxes. I’d like to bet that the denominational percentages of what gets paid in would be very close to the denominational percentage of what got paid out. KWIM?
