Focus on the Family (FOTF) President Jim Daly is heard by nearly seven million listeners on more than 1,000 radio stations in the U.S. every week, and, since taking the reins of the Colorado Springs-based ministry in 2005, he has become a prominent voice in American politics.Daly has a message for Christians who voted for Joe Biden for president (Snip) This is not a single-issue problem that Daly is raising concerning Christians who refused to support Trump’s re-election.

FTA: “ Daly has a message for Christians who voted for Joe Biden for president because they are so intensely repelled by Donald Trump’s character, Twitter statements, and personal manner.” As a born-again, saved by grace, evangelical Christian, I remain dumbfounded, nay speechless, that ‘Trumps’s character, Twitter statements, and personal manner’ would invite someone who purports to believe the Bible to pull a lever for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. That logic and rationale is stupefying.

Very few pastors that I know of will take a stand politcally. Probably afraid of alienating church members. Or IRS crackdowns. I don't know. But they are the proverbial head-in-the-sand types, who don't really lead.

I do not understand Christians voting for Joe Biden. I will not support a party that is trying to take God out of society and believes in abortion. Enough said. If a Christian is worried about Donald Trump's character, Twitter statements, personal manner, I would surmise they have not read the Bible from beginning to end. Maybe they should. . .

Christianity in America has been hijacked alongside the hijacking of America. The true Church stands, however, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. We're not half way into January, and already over one million babies around the world have been killed while nesting in their mothers' womb. It makes me weep inconsolably.

Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, stopped Trump from joining fringe social media platforms Parler and Gab after he was banned from Twitter, according to a report from CNN.

(Snip) Parler and Gab are platforms that have attracted some far-right users due to the companies’ lack of speech restrictions on their platforms.
Illinois Lawmakers Pass ‘Transformational’ Criminal
Justice Legislation In 11th Hour Of Lame Duck Session

Illinois lawmakers on Wednesday used the final hours of the general assembly’s lame duck session to pass a sweeping and controversial criminal justice reform bill that would eliminate cash bail, make it easier to ban officers from working at police departments across the state and allow for anonymous complaints against cops. The legislation, passed Wednesday morning after hours of late night bargaining, was a legislative priority of the Black legislative caucus. (Snip) A coalition of Illinois police groups said the bill had been “rammed through” the legislature “in the dark of night.” Nearly 20,000 people signed on as opponents to a previous version of the bill, compared to about 4,000 proponents.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says to stem the spread of COVID-19, all Americans should wear a mask. The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes. (Snip) Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”

The media industry was racked by a record 30,711 job cuts in 2020 — a stunning increase of 201 percent from the year earlier when 10,201 jobs were lost. The figures, which were rolled out Thursday by outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, included jobs data from the news industry, advertising, television and movie production. Last year’s dismal results topped the previous all-time record of 28,802 jobs lost in 2008 at the height of the Great Recession. And cutbacks in newsrooms, whether broadcast, digital or print, accounted for more than half the losses, or some 16,180 cuts.

The store was damaged during looting sprees last summer. Schwartz said the decision stems from a store review Macy’s began in early 2020, which she noted was before COVID-19 and civil unrest disrupted retail operations.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

While hitting seven-o is a big birthday for anyone, Limbaugh said almost a year ago that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Shortly before Christmas, an emotional Limbaugh said he was grateful to be outliving his doctors’ prognosis. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October and then to November and then to December and yet here I am,” Limbaugh told listeners.
