and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


Psalm 33 (excerpts)

10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

13 The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
14 From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
15 He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works.

16 No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
19 To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
22 Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.


“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12


America is a Christian nation. We are one nation under God. Our Founding Fathers and others in American history endorsed God in government. Historically, our congress recommended Bibles for America and funded Christian missionaries. Our national motto is “In God we trust.”

Christians uniting in Christ is our nation’s source of unity.

We are now in the midst of a national uprising of Leftists, who are testing whether America can survive under its present form of God-given rights, constitutional government and practices, and its present overriding principles of Liberty and Justice.

The farthest thing from these Leftists’ minds is whether or not their actions bring credit to and are being done for the glory of God. They are godless and anti-Christian to their core.

Let’s remember, from history, the integral relationship of God with the founding and development of America.


“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
– George Washington

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable.”
– George Washington

We have this day [Fourth of July] restored the Sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His Kingdom come.
– Samuel Adams

The name of the Lord (says the Scripture) is a strong tower; thither the righteous flee and are safe (Proverbs 18:10). Let us secure His favor and He will lead us through the journey of this life and at length receive us to a better.
– Samuel Adams

The rights of the colonists as Christians…may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the Great Law Giver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament.
– Samuel Adams

By Law the United States Congress adds to US coinage: “In God We Trust”
– United States Congress 1864

The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.
– John Adams

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.
– John Adams

The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.
– John Adams

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
– John Adams

[The Fourth of July] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.
– John Adams

As the safety and prosperity of nations ultimately and essentially depend on the protection and the blessing of Almighty God, and the national acknowledgment of this truth is not only an indispensable duty which the people owe to Him.
– John Adams

God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.
– Thomas Jefferson

Education is useless without the Bible. The Bible was America’s basic text book in all fields. God’s Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct.
– Noah Webster

In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed … No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.
– Noah Webster, Preface Noah Webster Dictionary, 1828

“I verily believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil society. One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law … There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying its foundations.”
– Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story

“[The Bible] is the rock on which our Republic rests.”
– Andrew Jackson

In regards to this great Book [the Bible], I have but to say it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are found portrayed in it.
– Abraham Lincoln

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God … and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
– Abraham Lincoln

Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh. (Matthew 18:7)
– Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln Memorial

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
– Abraham Lincoln

“Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust in the best way all our present difficulties.”
– Abraham Lincoln

“We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments.”
– James Madison

“Religion [is] the basis and foundation of Government”
– James Madison

“Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ.”
– James Madison

“The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country.”
– Calvin Coolidge

“The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul.”
– Harry S. Truman

“This Nation was established by men who believed in God. … You will see the evidence of this deep religious faith on every hand.’
– Harry S. Truman

“Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first, the most basic, expression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God’s help, it will continue to be.”
– Dwight D. Eisenhower

“I believe that the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism.”
– Theodore Roosevelt

“This is a Christian nation.”
– Harry Truman

“[The United States is] founded on the principles of Christianity”
– Franklin D. Roosevelt

Of the many influences that have shaped the United States into a distinctive nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible.
– Ronald Reagan

Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible inspired many of the early settlers of our country, providing them with the strength, character, convictions, and faith necessary to withstand great hardship and danger in this new and rugged land. These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies — a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades.
– Ronald Reagan

The Bible and its teachings helped form the basis for the Founding Fathers’ abiding belief in the inalienable rights of the individual, rights which they found implicit in the Bible’s teachings of the inherent worth and dignity of each individual. This same sense of man patterned the convictions of those who framed the English system of law inherited by our own Nation, as well as the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
– Ronald Reagan

For centuries the Bible’s emphasis on compassion and love for our neighbor has inspired institutional and governmental expressions of benevolent outreach such as private charity, the establishment of schools and hospitals, and the abolition of slavery.
– Ronald Reagan

Inside the Bible’s pages lie the answers to all the problems that mankind has ever known. I hope Americans will read and study the Bible.
– Ronald Reagan

Our founders invoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. Our currency declares “IN GOD WE TRUST.” And we place our hands on our hearts as we recite the Pledge of Allegiance and proclaim that we are “One Nation Under God.”
– Donald Trump

May we never forget that prayer guides and empowers our Nation and that all things are possible with God.  In times of prosperity, strife, peace, and war, Americans lean on His infinite love, grace, and understanding.
– Donald Trump


There is hope for us yet, as Christians across the USA declare: The Lord is the God of the USA and we are His people,

This battle is the Lord’s and through it God’s purpose and perfect plan will be accomplished.

God has mightily blessed America. May He continue to do so.

Amen.

      1. Guess what…

        Said designation to be RETROACTIVE, meaning…

        Any and all who have been charged with crimes related to rioting, etc…and can be shown to be members of ANTIFA…

        …will have new charges of terrorism leveled against them. 😎

        And THAT is Gitmo time.

        Oh, wanna visit your convicted friend/family member? You’ll have to make a special trip to Guantánamo Bay…

        And THAT that means that these people will get very few visitors during the years and years of their incarceration.

  2. Funny, me thinks…

    In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels, where there is a large German-speaking population.

    One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher’s stock pond.
    The rancher rolled down the window and shouted: “Sehr angenehm! Trink das Wasser nicht. Die kuehe haben darein geschissen.”
    This means: “Glad to meet you! Don’t drink the water. The cows have sh_t in it.”
    The man shouted back: “I’m from New York and just down here campaigning for Joe Biden. I can’t understand you. Please speak in English.”
    The rancher replied: “Use both hands.”

          Thanks, you are very kind.
          I found out that since the concussion was due to a blow to the back of the head (I hit the back of my head when I passed out and fell onto the carport floor), it will take longer to heal. But the doctor says I’m on track to recover. The staples come out this week.
          I am acutely aware that there are denizens of the Q Tree who have much more difficult health situations than mine, and/or who have witnessed or currently help loved ones with much more serious issues. I am grateful for you all’s prayers and good wishes.

  3. So I would point out that September 17, the day the BLM / Antifa PAID thugs will attempt to “occupy” Washington, DC, is Constitution Day — the day in 1787 that this precious document was signed in Philadelphia.

    1. linked excerpt
      On Sept. 17, 1787, the federal convention in Philadelphia completed its work. Originally convened to draft improvements to the flawed Articles of Confederation, the delegates had quickly shifted gears, deciding instead to develop an entirely different system of government. Over nearly four months of grueling debate, they crafted something brand new: the Constitution of the United States. On Sept. 15, the text was engrossed on parchment. Two days later, the document was presented to the delegates for their approval.

      Many Americans have heard the story of the woman who approached Benjamin Franklin as the delegates emerged from their proceedings in Independence Hall, which had been conducted in secret. “Well, doctor,” she asked, “what have we got — a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin famously replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

  4. Haven’t seen this thought on the Board yet…
    Regarding the horrific attempted murder of the 2 police officers last night…how did the BLM lowlifes get to the hospital to attempt blocking the ambulance BEFORE the ambulance arrived? One would think they had advanced notice to get themselves into place!
    How did the BLM know it was 2 officers shot and it wasn’t just a regular ambulance arriving?

      I have same type of questions from the Lancaster situation. I saw the raw vid of the incident yesterday afternoon. It was right out in a neighborhood, lots of people, on vid real time.

      They managed to stay calm, cool and collected til tonight? Had to wait until the other big events could surrender top agitators?

      1. That makes a little more sense, but I had read they were trying to block the ambulance. How about that NPR reporter also obstructing…ignoring police orders to get back and then claiming she was Press …when, in fact, she was did not have the proper credentials or ID. Very much like the NYT female reporter that didn’t play by the rules at the rally and was removed…tried to twist the story so she was the victim.

      1. They’d have to change from kneeling to squatting.

        Incidentally, Silicon Valley was once famous for recruiting vast numbers of people from foreign technical universities who had never seen a flush toilet. Instead, they were used to something like https://migrationology.com/how-to-use-a-squat-toilet-like-a-pro/ . So, you’d go into the restroom of a high-tech company, and find footprints on the toilet seat…..

        As a side note, that’s where you get the name for the late punk band, “Butthole Surfers” — and the expression “toilet surfing”.

    Don’t look away.

    Don’t go into denial.

    When a movement shows you what it really is, and where it really wants to take this country, you must believe what it is showing you.
