True Unity
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam


There are many unions all over the world, but in only one place is true unity to be found: in the Lord Jesus Christ. The children of fallen Adam have always been divided. Adam’s first two children could not get along together. One killed the other. And now that the race has multiplied there are about three billion separate, individual wills in the world. Some of Adam’s children try to get along together amicably and enjoy some measure of success, but this always takes effort. It does not come naturally. Even the dearest lovers must be prepared to yield to each other’s wishes frequently to get along well together. There is no true unity in this world.

But where Adam’s children have been divided by sin, they may be saved and truly united in Christ. As Christ became one with us when He died our death (the wages of sin) at Calvary, so we may become one with Him as in faith we acknowledge that that death was not His but ours. This is what the Apostle referred to when he asked:

“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death?” (Rom. 6:3).

This verse does not refer to water baptism, for no one can be baptized into Christ — become one with Him — by a physical ceremony. The only way to become one with Him is to accept by faith the fact that He died our death on the cross. The meeting place must always be Calvary. And as we acknowledge His death as ours and become one with Him, we automatically become one with each other.

“For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body” (I Cor. 12:13).

Unity in Christ is not something for which Christians are to strive. It is a fact of grace to be recognized and enjoyed by faith. True believers in and out of all denominations have been baptized into one body, whether or not they recognize this.

Now it is for us to appropriate and enjoy this unity in Christ, “endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph. 4:3) i.e., seeking to experience the unity which the Spirit has made. Only those who have been baptized into Christ by faith can appreciate the blessed oneness which believers may enjoy.

HISPANICS BENEFIT FROM TRUMP ECONOMY: “Latinos are finding their economic legs under the Trump administration, leading the surge in home ownership and income growth and record low poverty rates, according to two comprehensive new surveys. While they remain far behind whites in income, they have seen their third consecutive year of income growth and have a higher workplace participation rate, according to the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals and the Hispanic Wealth Project.” (Washington Examiner31)
FACEBOOK PAYS BIG FROM PRIVACY DISLIKE: “Facebook said on Wednesday that it expected to be fined up to $5 billion by the Federal Trade Commission for privacy violations. The penalty would be a record by the agency against a technology company and a sign that the United States was willing to punish big tech companies. … Facebook has been in negotiations with the regulator for months over a financial penalty for claims that the company violated a 2011 privacy consent decree. That year, the social network promised a series of measures to protect its users’ privacy after an investigation found that its handling of data had harmed consumers.” (The New York Times32)
LEGAL TROUBLE FOR ILLINOIS GOVERNOR: “In a state known for its history of political scandals and corruption, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker is the latest official reportedly under federal investigation. The 54-year-old Democratic governor, his wife, and his brother in law are all being investigated … over a tax break appeal. Pritzker and his wife advocated for a property tax break after they purchased a 126-year-old mansion. According to a Cook County inspector general’s report, first lady M.K. Pritzker told workers at the home to remove toilets in the residence in order to declare it ‘uninhabitable’ so that they could get a substantial tax break. The inspector general’s report says Pritzker’s brother-in-law Thomas Muenster and M.K. Pritzker’s personal assistant were involved and the alleged scheme cost taxpayers more than $330,000.” (Washington Examiner33)
MORE IRS BUNK: “The Satanic Temple has been officially recognized as a church by the Internal Revenue Service, three months after taking Sundance by storm as the subject of the documentary ‘Hail Satan?’ According to an announcement from ‘Hail Satan?’ distributor Magnolia Pictures, the temple is now eligible for the tax-exempt status given to other religious institutions.” (The Wrap34)

OPINION IN BRIEF

Gary Bauer: “Bernie Sanders is taking flak for his crazy idea to let convicted felons, including terrorists and rapists, vote in our elections. But he’s not the only one. Kamala Harris seemed open to the idea, saying, ‘I think we should have that conversation.’ Well, let’s have that conversation. America is a narrowly divided country. Donald Trump won the presidency due to 77,000 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump won Michigan by fewer than 11,000 votes. Last year, the state had nearly 40,000 people behind bars. Do we really want convicted felons, who are likely to be very supportive of left-wing candidates who are soft on crime, deciding our elections? Here’s something else to think about: The victims of the Boston Marathon bomber were not only denied their right to vote, they were also denied their right to life. It would make more sense to give the surviving spouses of those victims two votes than to let the bomber vote!”


SHORT CUTS

For the record: “We have, in many ways, almost fallen victim to our own successes in health care. Vaccines work, and work so well, that the diseases they’re meant to prevent have faded from our collective memories. Instead of knowing children in our classes forever changed by polio, as parents, we fear side effects from the very treatments meant to spare our children from harm and danger. This false equivalency is ultimately leaving more babies and vulnerable people exposed and at risk, without protection from a vaccinated population around them.” —Holly Scheer

Alpha Jackass: “It’s a national disgrace that Trump sleeps in the White House instead of a federal prison cell, but it has been a while since I had any expectation that the special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings, many of which were finally released to the public on Thursday, could set things right.” —New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg

Braying Jenny: “Congress should hold substantive hearings that build on the Mueller report and fill in its gaps, not jump straight to an up-or-down vote on impeachment. In 1998, the Republican-led House rushed to judgment. That was a mistake then and would be a mistake now. Watergate offers a better precedent.” —Hillary Clinton in an op-ed giving advice on following up to Mueller’s report (Sheerly by coincidence, we’re sure, Watergate was when Democrats ousted a Republican president.)

Collusion! “What’s clear from this administration, and what’s clear throughout the entirety of his business practices, is that they will lie, cheat, and steal. They’ll do anything to win. They have so eroded institutions of democracy. We have to be prepared for lying, cheating, and stealing. They have an approach to undermining our democracy that is shameful and that is why we are organizing everywhere. That is why we are preparing for every eventuality.” —DNC Chairman Tom Perez

Friendly fire: “I have a hard time seeing the [Bernie Sanders] coalition ultimately coming together.” —Pete Buttigieg

Gender bait: “I will have a woman running mate. To me it’s really clear that we do that.” —Sen. Cory Booker

“Not radical” doesn’t make it moral: “More than 30 countries around the world today such as Canada, South Africa and Finland allow prisoners to vote. This is not a radical idea. Every American citizen must be able to vote. Period.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Non compos mentis: “I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex. … I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand, was also a fitness instructor. … Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor … might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.” —"Fat Sex Therapist" Sonalee Rashatwar at St. Olaf College

And last… “Joe Biden will return the nation’s values to the happy days of 2009-2016, when he was VP of an admin that fanned the flames of Ferguson, let migrants die in US custody, allowed ISIS to grow, caged children, spied on & tried to jail reporters, and used tear gas on immigrants.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor

IN BRIEF

Trump Digs in Against Dems’ Impeachment Crusade10

President Donald Trump has been fighting against Democrats seeking to impeach him since he first took the oath of office. Following the conclusion of Robert Mueller’s report, in which Trump was exonerated11 of any collusion conspiracy, the wind may have been taken out of the Democrats’ impeachment sails, but that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to blow. Instead they insist that Mueller’s findings demand more investigations, as if congressional Democrats will be able to find what Mueller and his team of Hillary Clinton donors did not find: that Trump committed an actual crime.

Clearly, Trump has had enough of this partisan witch hunt. So, rather than bend to the House Democrats and their incessant subpoenas, which they dubiously justify as a needed constitutional check on his executive power, Trump has decided to dig in his heels. “We’re fighting all the subpoenas,” he stated. “Look, these aren’t … impartial people. The Democrats are trying to win 2020. They’re not going to win with the people that I see, and they’re not going to win against me. The only way they can luck out is by constantly going after me on nonsense.” He then concluded, “I say it’s enough.”

Trump is certainly correct in noting that it has been enough, and he is right in observing that all Democrats are aiming for is to take him out. That said, by digging in too much, Trump is potentially playing into their “obstruction” game plan.

Like the Mueller investigation, Democrats don’t really have anything on Trump; their aim is to get him on some procedural obstruction “crime.” Hence, the Dems’ cynical appeal to constitutional “separation of powers.” It is a purely politically calculated strategy that assumes a criminal act on the part of Trump, when there is no actual crime on which to justify their new investigation.

By continuing to peddle the myth of Trump having likely committed a crime, they can then feign concern for constitutional fealty when he balks at their demands. It is true that Congress is a coequal branch of government that has investigative and oversight powers, but that power is grossly abused when it is applied for purely partisan reasons.

Biden Makes It 20 for 202012

Will he or won’t he? It’s the question that has dogged Joe Biden for months now. He answered that question by announcing earlier in the week that he would be announcing his third presidential bid today via a video13 announcement and a kick-off rally on Monday in Pittsburgh. Even before throwing his hat in the ring to become the 20th Democrat candidate — 32 years after launching his first campaign in 1987 — the 76-year-old Biden loomed large in the race. Most polls show him in the leader group, though no doubt that’s largely due to name recognition.

That’s why it was no wonder to see Democrats and their Leftmedia mouthpieces preemptively rip Biden to shreds14 in recent weeks over what everyone has known about him for 40 years — he likes to touch females during ceremonies and photo ops. It’s not that Biden’s behavior hasn’t always been creepy, but this particular Democrat primary season makes all sorts of old news new again.

But The Wall Street Journal reports on Biden’s strategy to take the “middle” lane: “In the months leading up to his announcement, Mr. Biden said he would run as an ‘Obama-Biden Democrat,’ seeking to cast himself as a healing figure for a divided nation and restoring many of the Obama-era policies that have been reversed or challenged by Mr. Trump’s administration.” As a purported “blue-collar guy” from Scranton, Biden believes he could compete for the Rust Belt voters who gave Donald Trump their votes and the presidency.

His trouble will be winning the Democrat nomination as an old white guy who’s not a full socialist. Indeed, aside from his creepy touching and regular gaffes, Biden’s biggest obstacle is his own record15 — extensive, failed, and not where today’s Democrat Party is on the issues. The old white guy who wrote the book on the party’s Democratic Socialism, Bernie Sanders16, leads the fundraising field with $26.6 million. Biden begins with $0.

Yet based on his announcement video, he’s clearly hoping to capitalize on division in a phony call for unity — by using the Leftmedia’s fake news17 about Trump and Charlottesville. He aims to raise money on and garner votes for his experience and unique ability to be “Not Trump.” But how unique is that in a party with nothing but a Hate Trump18 platform?

TOP NEWS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

BARR IN THE HOT SEAT: “Attorney General William Barr will testify next week on Wednesday to the Senate Judiciary Committee and answer questions about special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report, released last week. Barr will appear at 10am on May 1 before the Senate committee, chaired by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, according to a press release from the committee. He is expected to testify to the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee the next day.” (National Review26)
MEASLES WATERSHED: According to Reuters27, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “has confirmed 695 measles cases so far this year, the highest level since the country declared it had eliminated the virus in 2000. The resurgence, which public health officials blamed in part on the spread of misinformation about the safety of vaccines, has been concentrated mainly in Washington state and New York with outbreaks that began late last year.” Reuters also reports28 that “New York City has issued civil summonses to 12 people it said were not complying with a mandatory measles vaccination order as the number of recorded cases in the city’s worst outbreak since 1991 rose to 390.”
NEW BORDER ULTIMATUM: “President Donald Trump on Wednesday again threatened to close part of the southern border and send more ‘armed soldiers’ to defend it if Mexico did not block a new caravan of migrants traveling toward the United States. … U.S. officials … said they are expecting a request from the Department of Homeland Security in the coming days for additional troops, although that number is expected to be in the low hundreds. About 5,000 active duty and National Guard troops already are at the border.” (Reuters29)
PHONE SURVEILLANCE ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK? “The National Security Agency has recommended the White House drop the controversial phone surveillance program that was secretly launched during the George W. Bush administration following the 9/11 attacks… The program, which collects metadata on U.S. phone calls and text messages, was started without a court order, and its existence wasn’t known until former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden leaked information to journalists about it in 2013. … If the White House follows the NSA’s recommendation, the program’s legal authority will expire in December.” (The Week30)

Fruitless Trees

“Woe unto them! . . . trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots.” (Jude 1:11-12)

Many illustrations in Scripture compare the responsibility of trees to bear fruit and the responsibility of Christians to produce righteousness. The reason for the frequent comparisons is that “a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit” (Luke 6:43). It is easy to tell what kind a tree is because “every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes” (Luke 6:44).

Jude is making the point, however, that there are “trees” planted amidst the orchard of God’s Kingdom churches that have withering “fruit” or have already been rooted up as worthless, fruitless, and twice-dead. These trees have absolutely no place among the healthy trees. At best they scar and mar the beauty of the orchard, and at worst they spread their decay and rot throughout it.

Another very important point is that trees that have withered or cannot produce good fruit are not salvageable. All of nature demonstrates and reinforces the eternal principle that “every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit” (Matthew 7:17). Such dead, fruitless trees are to be “hewn down, and cast into the fire” (Matthew 3:10).

The common thread in all of these several pictures by Jude is the damage that can be done by ungodly “tares” among the wheat (Matthew 13:24-30), fig trees that should be providing nourishment but do not (Luke 13:6-9), and plants that are choked by “cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches” (Mark 4:19). All of these can spread the “leaven” through the whole “lump” and undermine the work of God (Galatians 5:9). HMM III

Comfort for Christians

by Arthur W. Pink, 1952

SUFFERINGS COMPENSATED
 

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us" (Romans 8:18).

Ah, says someone—that must have been written by a man who was a stranger to suffering, or by one acquainted with nothing more trying than the milder irritations of life. Not so! These words were penned under the direction of the Holy Spirit, and by one who drank deeply of sorrow's cup, yes, by one who suffered afflictions in their most acute forms. Hear his own testimony: "I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked." 2 Corinthians 11:23-27

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." This, then was the settled conviction—not of one of "fortune's favorites," not of one who found life's journey a carpeted pathway, bordered with roses; but, instead, of one who was hated by his kinsmen, who was oft-times beaten black and blue, who knew what it was to be deprived not only of the comforts, but the bare necessities of life. How, then shall we account for his cheery optimism? What was the secret of his elevation over his troubles and trials?

The first thing with which the sorely-tried apostle comforted himself, was that the sufferings of the Christian are but of brief duration—they are limited to "this present time." This is in sharp and solemn contrast from the sufferings of the Christ-rejector. His sufferings will be eternal—forever tormented in the Lake of Fire. But far different is it for the believer. His sufferings are restricted to this life on earth, which is compared to a flower that comes forth and is cut down; to a shadow that flees and continues not. A few short years at most, and we shall pass from this valley of tears into that blissful country where groans and sighs are never heard!

Second, the apostle looked forward with the eye of faith to "the glory." To Paul "the glory" was something more than a beautiful dream. It was a practical reality, exerting a powerful influence upon him, consoling him in the warmest and most trying hours of adversity. This is one of the real tests of faith. The Christian has a solid support in the time of affliction, when the unbeliever has not. The child of God knows that in his Father's presence there is "fullness of joy," and that at His right hand there are "pleasures forever more." And faith lays hold of them, appropriates them, and lives in the comforting cheer of them even now. Just as Israel in the wilderness were encouraged by a sight of what awaited them in the promised land (Num. 13:23,26), so, the one who today walks by faith, and not by sight, contemplates that which eye has not seen, nor ear heard—but which God by His Holy Spirit has revealed unto us (1 Cor. 2:9,10).

Third, the apostle rejoiced in "the glory which shall be revealed in us." All that this means we are not yet capable of understanding. But more than a hint has been shown to us. There will be:

(a.) The glory of a perfect body. In that day, the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. That which was sown in dishonor shall be raised in glory, and that which was sown in weakness shall be raised in power. As we have borne the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (1 Cor. 15:49). The content of these expressions is summarized and amplified in Phil. 3:20,21: "But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take these weak mortal bodies of ours and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same mighty power that he will use to conquer everything, everywhere."

(b.) There will be the glory of a transformed mind. "For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known" (1 Cor. 13:12). Oh, what an orb of intellectual light will be each glorified mind! What range of light will it encompass! What capability of understanding will it enjoy! Then will all mysteries be unraveled, all problems solved, all discrepancies reconciled. Then shall each truth of God's revelation, each event of His providence, each decision of His government, stand yet more transparently clear and resplendent than the sun itself! Do you, in your present quest for spiritual knowledge, mourn the darkness of your mind, the weakness of your memory, the limitations of your intellectual faculties? Then rejoice in hope of the glory which is to be revealed in you—when all your intellectual powers shall be renewed, developed, perfected—so that you shall know even as you are known!

(c.) Best of all, there will be the glory of perfect holiness. God's work of grace in us will then be completed. He has promised to "perfect that which concerns us" (Psalm. 138:8). Then will be the consummation of purity. We have been predestinated to be "conformed to the image of His Son" (Romans 8:29), and when we shall see Him, "we shall be like him" (1 John 3:2). Then our minds will be no more defiled by evil imaginations, our consciences no more sullied by a sense of guilt, our affections no more ensnared by unworthy objects.

What a marvelous prospect is this! A "glory" to be revealed in me who now can scarcely reflect a solitary ray of light! In me—so wayward, so unworthy, so sinful—living so little in communion with Him who is the Father of lights! Can it be that in me this glory shall be revealed? So affirms the infallible Word of God. If I am a child of light—through being "in Him" who is the effulgence of the Father's glory—even though now dwelling amid the world's dark shades, one day I shall outshine the brightness of the skies. And when the Lord Jesus returns to this earth, I shall "be marveled at among all those who have believed" (2 Thess. 1:10).

Finally, the apostle here weighed the "sufferings" of this present time over against the "glory" which shall be revealed in us, and as he did so he declared that the one is "not worthy to be compared" with the other. The one is transient—the other eternal. As, then, there is no proportion between the finite and the infinite, so there is no comparison between the sufferings of earth—and the glory of heaven. One second of glory will outweigh a lifetime of suffering! What were the years of toil, of sickness, of battling with poverty, of sorrow in any or every form—when compared with the glory of Immanuel's land! One draught of the river of pleasure at God's right hand, one breath of Paradise, one hour amid the blood-washed around the throne—shall more than compensate for all the tears and groans of earth. "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." May the Holy Spirit enable both writer and reader to lay hold of this with appropriating faith and live in the present possession and enjoyment of it—to the praise of the glory of Divine grace.

Rebellion Against Pauline Authority
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam


One of the chief reasons why so many sincere religious people are left in doubt and uncertainty as to salvation is because the organized Church has rebelled against a distinct and important revelation from God to us who live in this present age. This revelation is found in the inspired words of Paul, in Rom. 11:13:

    “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles. I magnify mine office.”

Many minimize that which the Word of God magnifies here. They insist upon following Peter rather than Paul, failing to see that Peter’s authority concerned the now-rejected kingdom of Christ on earth over Israel and the nations. Our Lord had said to His twelve apostles:

    “Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, YE ALSO SHALL SIT UPON TWELVE THRONES, JUDGING THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL” (Matt. 19:28).

Surely there are no twelve tribes in the Church today, nor was any provision, specific or implied, made by our Lord for “apostolic succession.” This dogma is built upon the unscriptural assumption that the Church today is the kingdom which Christ established when on earth, and that our ministry today is but a perpetuation of that which the twelve began.

The fact is that the ministry of the twelve was halted by the rejection of the King and His kingdom and that the apostles themselves finally agreed to turn their proposed Gentile ministry over to Paul, that other apostle, to whom had been committed “the gospel of the grace of God” (Read carefully, Gal. 2:2-9 and Acts 20:24).

If only the confused religious masses could see that when Israel joined the Gentiles in rebellion against God, when the world’s sin had risen to its height and all was ready for judgment, God revealed “the exceeding riches of His grace” by saving Saul, the chief of sinners, and sending him forth as both the herald and the living example of His grace! Thus he writes:

    “Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound, BUT WHERE SIN ABOUNDED, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND: “THAT AS SIN HATH REIGNED UNTO DEATH, EVEN SO MIGHT GRACE REIGN, through righteousness, unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20,21).

Then the scum appears!

(Thomas Brooks, "The Mute Christian Under the Smarting Rod" or, "The Silent Soul with Sovereign Antidotes" 1659)

"I have tried you in the furnace of affliction." Isaiah 48:10

Few Christians see themselves and understand themselves rightfully.
By trials, God reveals much of a man's sinful self to his pious self.

When the fire is put under the pot--then the scum appears!
Just so, when God tries a poor soul, Oh! how does . . .
  the scum of pride,
  the scum of murmuring,
  the scum of distrust,
  the scum of impatience,
  the scum of worldliness,
  the scum of carnality,
  the scum of foolishness,
  the scum of willfulness
--reveal itself in the heart of the poor creature!

Trials are God's looking-glass, in which His people see their own faults. Oh! . . .
  that looseness,
  that vileness,
  that wretchedness,
  that sink of filthiness,
  that gulf of wickedness,
which trials show to be in their hearts!

"When He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold!" Job 23:10

"Trials make the promise sweet,
 Trials give new life to prayer;
 Trials bring me to His feet,
 Lay me low, and keep me there!"

ABOUT THAT NEW POLICY ON HOMOSEXUAL LEADERS… “More than 200 individuals have come forward with new allegations of sexual abuse by members of the Boy Scouts of America in recent weeks as a trio of law firms seek to uncover unidentified child abusers. A few of the victims are young, still underage or in their 20s, but many have held their secrets close for decades,” reports USA Today23. “Only a handful of the new allegations are related to previously identified perpetrators. About 90% … are new. … The Scouting organization faces 200 lawsuits that its insurance companies threatened to stop covering.” All told, there may be more than 12,000 victims24.
THE CLOWN CIRCUS GROWS: “Former Vice President Joe Biden will announce his presidential bid Thursday morning with an online video… Biden will then appear in Pittsburgh on Monday for an event at a local union hall, NBC News has learned. Biden will then embark on a tour of the four early voting states — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — in the following weeks.” (NBC News25)
BURGEONING MIGRATION NUMBERS: According to the Texas Tribune26, “Less than seven months into the fiscal year, the number of undocumented immigrants who have been apprehended or turned themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley has already surpassed last year’s total.” The 164,000 illegals arrested just since October is higher than the 2018 aggregate of 162,262. “The increase is the result of an ongoing surge of migrants, most of them from Central America.” Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports27, “The Mexican government says it has deported 15,000 migrants who illegally entered Mexico from Guatemala and had been traveling as part of caravans in hopes of reaching the United States’ southern border,” though “thousands more people continue to traverse the country intent on reaching the U.S.”
VILLAGE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM: “Beginning in 2020, many Advanced Placement students will be using an American History textbook that suggests President Trump is mentally ill and that depicts him and many of his supporters as racists. The book asserts that ‘[Trump’s] not very-hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.’ What connected with a significant number of primary voters was Trump’s strong opposition to illegal immigration and his concern over terrorists entering the U.S. The textbook effectively characterizes these concerns as ‘not very-hidden racism’ and those who share them as racists. … The textbook goes further. It says that Hillary Clinton supporters ‘worried about the mental stability of the president-elect.’” (Power Line28)
TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME IN THE UK: “President Trump will pay a state visit to the U.K. in early June, according to Buckingham Palace, which says Trump has accepted an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II to visit America’s closest ally. … Even before Buckingham Palace and the White House issued confirmation of the trip, protest groups in the U.K. announced their plans to demonstrate against the American president and his policies. ‘We have to march in huge numbers against his racism, misogyny, transphobia, and the threat he poses to the planet,’ activist and writer Owen Jones wrote, in a tweet that was shared by the U.K.‘s Stop Trump Coalition.” (NPR29)
SRI LANKA UPDATE: “President Maithripala Sirisena demanded the resignations of two top security officials Wednesday as new details emerged about the nine suicide bombers who carried out devastating attacks that killed 359 people on Easter Sunday. Sirisena asked Pujith Jayasundara, the country’s police chief, and Hemasiri Fernando, the defense secretary, to step down amid a growing furor surrounding the government’s failure to act on intelligence warning of possible attacks on churches by an obscure Islamist extremist group.” (The Washington Post30)

OPINION IN BRIEF

Michelle Malkin: “It’s the radical left, much of it fueled with [George] Soros’ money, that has hijacked the U.S. Census, not President Donald Trump. ‘No Illegal Immigrant Left Behind’ is crucial to their strategy. Why? Remember: The Census is used to divvy up seats in the House as a proportion of their population based on the head count. The redistribution of power extends to presidential elections because the Electoral College is pegged to the size of congressional delegations. More people equal more seats. More illegal immigrants equal more power. … Our Founding Fathers explicitly warned against the perils of foreigners manipulating representation by overwhelming the country. Immigration scholar and author Daniel Horowitz points to Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story’s prophetic admonition: ‘If aliens might be admitted indiscriminately to enjoy all the rights of citizens at the will of a single state, the Union might itself be endangered by an influx of foreigners, hostile to its institutions, ignorant of its powers, and incapable of a due estimate of its privileges.’ Statesman Roger Sherman similarly emphasized the need to ‘guard against an improper mode of naturalization’ by states adopting ‘easier terms.’”


SHORT CUTS

Upright: “I think there are two big reasons why this country is so great. The first is our Constitution, which guarantees our freedom of speech and expression. The second is our free-market system. … It pains me to see people in this country glorifying socialism. Young people especially have been indoctrinated into believing that free enterprise is immoral because it enriches the greedy and depresses the poor.” —Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus

For the record: “There’s no collusion, says the special counsel. That takes one sentence. It doesn’t take 200 damn pages. It doesn’t take $35 million dollars.” —Mark Levin

Braying Jenny: “I’m more Palestinian in the halls of Congress than I am anywhere in the country [and] in the world. ” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib

Non compos mentis: “Tourist mecca Notre Dame also revered as place of worship.” —AP headline

Demo-gogues: “I accept that there’s a humanitarian crisis that is being caused by this president. There is a humanitarian crisis when you throw children into cages and separate families. That’s a human-rights violation. We can keep our country safe and strong and honor human rights as well.” —Sen. Cory Booker

The BIG Lie: “When it comes to the VA, all I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always told me growing up. Which is that, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ … This thing … provides the highest quality care to our veterans.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Braying Jackass: “While I am a progressive feminist, I have often debated folks who are citing the Bible and shouting out Sodom and Gomorrah. That’s something they always say. And I would always push back and say, ‘Listen, if Jesus is so great, why weren’t you nicer? Why aren’t you kinder?’ … Jesus needs new PR. I always had that line growing up. Because, honestly, I think what Mayor Pete [Buttigieg] is doing — he is demonstrating how to actually be a Christian, to embrace people, to be more compassionate. I think that’s an example that crosses partisan boundaries actually.” —MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell

And last… “The biggest problem America faces are lost adults whose bizarre beliefs are saturating an entire generation of impressionable young minds.” —Rebecca Hagelin

Supreme Court to decide on a citizenship question1
Clinton’s gross hypocrisy on Trump’s supposed “obstruction.”2

IN BRIEF

SCOTUS Leans Toward Census Citizenship Question10

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in Department of Commerce v. New York, a case that challenges whether the Trump administration has the legal authority to include a citizenship question in the upcoming 2020 Census. As The Wall Street Journal reports, “Eighteen or so states argue that a citizenship question will deter immigrants from responding to the Census and result in an undercount of Hispanics, which would reduce federal funding and their representation in Congress. Three federal judges have sustained this extraordinary legal claim.”

As directed by the Constitution, the federal government is to conduct a census of the U.S. population every 10 years, and from 1790 to the present that directive has been followed. From 1820 to 1950, a citizenship question was included in the census, and up through the 2000 Census a citizenship question was included in the long-form questionnaire that was given to one-sixth of households. In other words, the 2010 Census containing no citizenship question is the outlier. And it is this census outlier that those opposed to the citizenship question are arguing should be the legal precedent.

The problem for these folks is that the Census Act grants the commerce secretary the authority to conduct the census “in such form and content as he may determine.” While they may contend that the inclusion of a citizenship question will negatively impact the ability of the census to provide accurate population numbers, claiming that those living in the country illegally will not return the questionnaire out of fear is merely speculative. Furthermore, they avoid the real issue, which is the electoral impact of high numbers of noncitizens, whether legal or illegal, on the representative governance rights of U.S. citizens.

As the oral arguments were submitted, it became apparent that the conservative justices weren’t buying the main argument against the inclusion of a citizenship question. Justice Samuel Alito expressed his skepticism, musing, “What jumps out is the fact that citizens and noncitizens differ in a lot of respects other than citizenship. They differ in socioeconomic status. They differ in education. They differ in language ability. I don’t think you have to be much of a statistician to wonder about the legitimacy” of the claim that the inclusion of a citizenship question would lower response rates. Justice Neil Gorsuch noted that “it’s not like this question is improper to ask.”

The expectation is that the Court will issue its decision relatively quickly, as the Census Bureau needs to begin the process of printing census materials in June. A ruling in favor of America (not just Trump) would undo a significant plank in the Democrats’ efforts to rig elections11 in their favor.

Clinton the Consummate Hypocrite on ‘Obstruction’12

“I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted,” Hillary Clinton said Tuesday. After all these years, it’s a relief to see her come clean about the astounding level of privilege borne of corruption in Barack Obama’s administration that she enjoyed in walking away scot-free after illegally sharing classified information over an unsecured private email server.

Except she was talking about Donald Trump and obstruction of justice after Robert Mueller’s report13. She said, “As I read [Mueller’s report] what I thought it said was, ‘Look, we think he obstructed justice … but we’re under the control of the Justice Department.’”

One of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s most obnoxious traits over the last 30 years is to hypocritically accuse their political opponents of exactly the shenanigans and crimes they themselves committed. (“The politics of personal destruction,” anyone?) Bill actually was charged with both obstruction of justice and perjury when he was impeached by the House in 1998. He only survived because Democrats in the Senate refused to convict.

And Hillary “would clearly have been indicted” for her email subterfuge had Obama and his deep-state actors not intervened. Former FBI Director James Comey’s higher loyalty was to Clinton14, which is why she’s not in prison. Other Americans were imprisoned for less severe versions of her same offenses.

By contrast, Trump may be a loudmouth on Twitter who relentlessly objected to Mueller’s “witch hunt,” but as Attorney General Bill Barr made clear last week, “The White House fully cooperated with the special counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims.” That utterly undercuts the Left’s obstruction claims, and it should have been enough for Mueller to not abdicate his prosecutorial mandate to come to that conclusion. Instead, he left the door open for demagogues and hypocrites like Clinton to continue insisting Trump is guilty of obstruction.

Clinton could perhaps be given one cheer for saying impeachment “should be something undertaken in a really serious, diligent way based on evidence, not on partisan advantage.” She applauded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who she said was “right to be cautious” about it. But even in this Clinton exposed her personal bitterness. “You don’t put impeachment on the table as the only item on the table and say you’re going to get there no matter what, which is what happened in ‘99,” she advised. That’s a grossly skewed perspective on her husband’s impeachment. Moreover, she’s actually just setting the table for the “serious, diligent” way Democrats eventually conclude to impeach Trump.

Regarding the report’s controversial “Ten Episodes” of possible obstruction29, these events are readily dismissible as the actions of a president frustrated by a phony Justice Department investigation seeded by his political enemies and high-level government operatives30 as part of a coup d'etat to end his presidency31 or, at the very least, to obstruct his MAGA agenda32.

Of course, it’s difficult to establish obstruction of an investigation into a crime that never occurred.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley says, “Despite identifying 10 troubling episodes that could be defined as acts of obstruction, [Mueller] could not say with confidence that Trump acted with the requisite ‘corrupt intent.’ … Mueller, found ‘substantial evidence’ that Trump wanted to limit the scope of the investigation, but that is not necessarily intent. … Even the best grounds for obstructive intent with Trump seeking to fire Mueller, an order ignored by White House Council, was justified by Trump as based on his fear of a conflict of interest. … Like indictable acts, impeachable acts demand a showing of intent, not simply an array of possible intense.”

Not content with the report’s failure to comport with the Democrats’ agenda, Rep. Adam “Shifty” Schiff has “invited” Mueller to testify before his Intel Committee. But that testimony, if it happens, will provide ample openings for Republicans to ask important questions about the Obama administration hacks who should really be investigated33 for seeding this hoax.

All that said, one of the most significant findings of the Mueller Report is that, under the Obama administration’s watch, the Russian government engaged in a “sweeping and systemic” campaign of interference through its government sponsored Internet Research Agency, and the Russian Army’s Main Intelligence Directorate, the GRU. According to the report, it was the GRU that hacked the computer networks of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, along with more than 300 Clinton campaign staffers and others associated with campaigns.

The report also notes that the GRU created the “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0” fronts that distributed those emails to WikiLeaks anarchist Julian Assange34.

KEEPING THE IMPEACHMENT DREAM ALIVE…

As they launch phase two of the coup19, Democrats believe that the Mueller Report provides them a roadmap to impeachment35.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren36 (D-MA) was the first Democrat on the crowded 2020 presidential stage to call for Trump’s impeachment37. “To ignore a president’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country,” she pontificated. “The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States. We have a Constitution of the United States. And it says, when a president engages in this kind of activity, then it’s time for impeachment.”

Of course, whenever a leftist mentions the word “Constitution,” we can be confident that whatever follows is complete horse pucky.

Sen. Kamala Harris38 (D-CA) also got on board: “I believe Congress should take the steps towards impeachment. I believe that we need to get rid of this president.” But she lamented, “I’ve not seen any evidence to suggest that [Senate Republicans] will weigh on the facts instead of on partisan adherence to being protective of this president, and that’s what concerns me and what will be the eventual outcome.”

Nancy Pelosi, in a letter to her House Demos, declared with great drama, “We have to save our democracy. This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about saving our democracy. If it is what we need to do to honor our responsibility to the Constitution — if that’s the place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go.” (If she’d ever bothered to read our Constitution, she might know that we’re a Republic, not a “democracy.”)

Pelosi continued: “While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings of the Mueller report or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth. … it is also important to know that the fax regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings.”

This, of course, has nothing to do with the truth. The Mueller Report has (however one-sidedly) already documented the truth — which is that this entire affair was a Democrat ruse. But their “collective constituency of dunces39” will likely not be able to discern that.

To borrow a line from Shakespeare, “The [ladies] doth protest too much, methinks.” Perhaps this is a diversion to head off further investigations into the real criminal actions40 committed by Obama and Clinton and their deep-state operatives at the DOJ and CIA.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, when asked about whether there is evidence to impeach Trump, paused for a few seconds before responding, “Yeah, I do. If proven, if proven — which hasn’t been proven yet — if proven, some of this would be impeachable, yes. Obstruction of justice, if provable, would be impeachable.”

Weather forecast for DC: a blizzard of subpoenas. However, Trump says he will fight41 every one of these politically-motivated efforts to obstruct and distract: “We’re fighting all the subpoenas. The subpoenas are ridiculous. I say it’s enough. Get back to infrastructure, get to back to cutting taxes, get back to lowering prescription drug prices.”

Nadler insists he wants the entire unredacted Mueller Report released to Congress: “I am open to working with the DoJ to reach a reasonable accommodation for access to these materials, however I cannot accept any proposal which leaves most of Congress in the dark, as they grapple with their duties of legislation, oversight and constitutional accountability.” (Did he just mention the Constitution?)

Of course, the redacted version doesn’t leave “Congress in the dark,” and the Justice Department has already cleared a few lawmakers to read a less-redacted version.

Last but not least, Rep. Adam Schiff insists that there were “without question [acts] within the realm of impeachable offenses.”

Responding brilliantly to this gaggle of Demo accusers, Trump asked, “How do you impeach a Republican President for a crime that was committed by the Democrats?”

Indeed, even CNN’s leftist anchor Wolf Blitzer concluded, “So there you have almost a complete vindication of the president of the United States.”

Even The New York Times begrudgingly concluded42, “The 35-page dossier, spiced up with tales of prostitutes and spies, sketched out a hair-raising story more than two years ago. Russian intelligence had used bribery and blackmail to try to turn Donald J. Trump into a source and ally, it said, and the Kremlin was running some Trump campaign aides practically as agents. But the release … of the report … underscored what had grown clearer for months — that … some of the most sensational claims in the dossier appeared to be false, and others were impossible to prove. Mr. Mueller’s report contained over a dozen passing references to the document’s claims but no overall assessment of why so much did not check out.”

The claims didn’t merely “appear to be false.” They were false. As for “why so much did not check out,” again, the claims were false.

But Leftmedia25 outlets will continue to churn this hoax43 because, regardless of its merits, it comports with their political agenda and it sells advertising — it’s a big seller!

However, Democrats and their Leftmedia mouthpieces risk public fatigue44 with their endless fake collusion charade. Recent polls indicate that 0% of American voters think the Russia investigation is the most important issue in the 2020 election, while 54% say they believe the investigation was politically motivated. Notably, only 38% of Americans support the Democrats’ plan to continue the investigation.

Meanwhile, Demos are lining up their next round of fodder to obstruct Trump’s agenda, turning their attention to his tax returns45 for diversion.

Footnote: I propose that the $35 million bill for Mueller’s investigation be invoiced to the DNC46 — or perhaps the Clinton crime syndicate47.
