Just how can Satan cast out Satan?…

And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? ~ Mark 3: 23

Julie Kelly, American Greatness (and throughout): As the president greeted tens of thousands of Americans who had traveled to the nation’s capital to show their support for Trump’s last stand, Senate Republicans learned they would lose control of the chamber after both Georgia races were called for the Democrats. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) used his time from the floor to dismiss valid allegations of election fraud as his conference prepared to certify the election of their longtime Senate colleague, Joe Biden. The outgoing Senate leader falsely claimed that Trump’s lawsuits “received hearings in courtrooms all across the country” while admitting every election has illegalities and irregularities.

And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. ~ Mark 3: 24

Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah), a Black Lives Matter supporter, ran away from a female constituent confronting him in an airport for not supporting the president’s election challenges. A leftist mob threatened the family of Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) on the eve of the Senate’s certification vote. Within hours of the breach of the Capitol, Lindsey Graham, who failed for four straight years to fulfill his repeated promises to “get to the bottom” of Barack Obama’s corrupt FBI, called for a special task force to investigate the “domestic terrorists” involved in the January 6 incident. “Sedition might be a charge for some of these people,” the tough talker warned. “The people sitting in the chairs need to be sitting in a jail cell.”

And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. ~ Mark 3: 25 

“Last year’s bizarre pandemic procedures must not become the new norm” McConnell lectured, clearly unaware that, yes, those rules will of course become the new norm and that there isn’t a damn thing he can – or will – do about it. The GOP Senate’s long run of failure theater was temporarily shut down as people entered the Capitol, some to cause trouble. Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.), a signer to a last-minute CYA attempt to delay certification and appoint a special commission to audit the election, was speaking in support of the move as Capitol security officers evacuated the chamber.

And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. ~ Mark 3: 26

Just how can Satan cast out Satan?

When he returned hours later, Lankford, clearly shaken, rescinded his support. “We are headed for tonight the certification of Joe Biden to be president of the United States,” Lankford said. Kelly Loeffler, fresh off her defeat in Georgia, followed suit. The aforementioned duplicitous Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), now having been reelected to a third term, gave a rambling speech late Wednesday night. “I don’t buy [election fraud claims]. Enough is enough. We gotta end this,” Graham ranted. “It is over.” Indeed it is.

McConnell now will relinquish the gavel and Graham will relinquish his useless chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. ~ Mark 3: 27

Trump supporters, unfortunately, didn’t deserve what they got in the end, as they endured more mockery and contempt from the media, Democrats, and NeverTrump hucksters alleged to be in their own political party. The lax double standards that apply to BLM rioters and Antifa thugs, of course, did not apply to the handful of troublemakers who vandalized the Capitol. Graham claimed Trump’s “actions” before the incident “tarnished” the president’s accomplishments in office – accomplishments, by the way, that Trump achieved with little help from Senate Republicans, including Graham. Ending their reign in humiliation and defeat, capped off with final gasps of grandstanding and betrayal, is a fitting end to the GOP Senate in the Trump era. But that wasn’t enough to expose the hypocrisy of the moment.

Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: ~ Mark 3: 28

Like so many times before – be it a mob in Charlottesville or pro-life high schoolers at the Mall in Washington – it was death by proxy. Reporters and pundits want to “cleanse” the country of 75 million Trump supporters, language unthinkable just four years ago.

Democrats will control the White House, the Senate, and the House for the first time since 2009. A feeble near-octogenarian will pretend to govern as his ambitious vice president waits in the wings for her chance to rule. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will try to inflict God-knows-what on the country for at least the next two years. It’s unlikely that will end well, either. [end]

But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. ~ Mark 3: 29


Just how can Satan cast out Satan?…

The Republican Party as we know it is over. And some would chorus “Thank God”. The GOP’s disloyalty to the President and his voters in the final stretch will not be soon forgotten.

Here’s a fellow Christian-Brit, Graham Wood, living in the UK and following closely the current matters of great import here in the USA:

“Be assured we here are right there with you, homegrown patriots deeply concerned about the dire situation in the USA brought about by the fraudulent election process and corruption at every political level. I might add that the UK is little better.”

“I have seen your posts and the excellent American Thinker site, and trying to follow the tortuous progress to restore legality and righteousness against the ‘deep state’ enemies of America. This is to let you and your brethren and sisters know that there are many British Christians also praying with much urgency about the situation. Do be heartened, for as you rightly say, the Lord hears our prayers and His will is perfect though maybe only unfolding slowly.”

“I have given much thought to the words of Psalm 94:1 where the Psalmist (probably David) simply asks that God “shew Himself”. That is more than enough for we know that vengeance (that is, justice, and righteous judgment) belongs to him alone and does he not say “I will repay?”

“Trump won a landslide – the Lord knows that! We must keep praying on in the light of Luke 18:1-8 (and especially v.7). Be encouraged therefore brothers and sisters!” [end]

Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit. ~ Mark 23: 30
