Going With the Flo: There’s a war going on for the soul of this nation

Noah Webster — the great scholar and university president who gave us the Webster’s Dictionary — said, “Let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God ... if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted. ... if a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it is because the citizens neglect the Divine commands and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”

We have come to a place where we call evil good and good evil. The secular notion that you can have virtue, integrity or strong character without a framework of moral value is a lie. Character can only be built on a foundation or moral values, and there is no morality without religion. A nation without moral restraint cannot exist; it will be turned into an absolute jungle.

Responses from Democrats and Republicans concerning the report from the Inspector General’s report exhibits lack of character. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said, “I am bitterly disappointed, angered and alarmed by this report. What a dark day it is for the FBI and DOJ — the world’s primary law enforcement agencies – the two institutions our country need to have confidence in and I had defended them. Peter Strozk’s level of bias was so high that you can’t remove the taint in the organization. There were two reasons why they decided not to prosecute Hillary Clinton: 1. She didn’t have specific general intent. 2. She didn’t expose it to foreign actors. Yet, her emails were hacked. Had they not made up their minds not to prosecute six weeks before they interviewed her, they would have found evidence of her intent to commit a crime. Their minds were made up before they interviewed her. Andrew McCarthy said they rewrote the Espionage Act Statute to make a path to not charge Hillary. Also, her emails WERE compromised! The FBI is the loser; public trust must be restored! The taint is there. All of us have lost when we have a Department and a Bureau that we cannot have confidence in. Bias is so insidious and pervasive. It colors your ability to see clearly what needs to be done. Everything in Strzok’s mind is viewed through the prism that he can’t think of a single person who would vote for Donald Trump, that the vote should be 100 million to zero.”

Texts from Lisa Page to Strzok: “He’s not ever going to become president, right? RIGHT?! Strzok: No, no, he won’t. We’ll stop it. Then: “FBI influence!” These FBI agents were given gifts, tickets to dinners, golfing events, etc.

FBI employee message to FBI attorney: “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy [expletive] that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing siasm.” There are other expressions that cannot be expressed! It’s called, “Trump Derangement Syndrome!” Peter Strozk said that President Obama, who constantly worked against President Trump, wanted to know everything that went on.

Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the Judicial Committee, said that “hundreds of classified emails were handled improperly; bias was overwhelming.”

Rudy Giuliani said, “I’ve worked with the FBI for over 40 years. This would not have been uncovered without FBI rank and file.”

There’s a war going on for the soul of this nation! We’ve had bad men making bad decisions, producing a jungle.
