'History Has Its Eyes On Us.' Poet Amanda Gorman Seeks Right Words For Inauguration

We've seen a force that would shatter our nation rather than share it,

Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy.

And this effort very nearly succeeded.

But while democracy can be periodically delayed,

It can never be permanently defeated.

In this truth, in this faith we trust.

For while we have our eyes on the future,

History has its eyes on us.

Franklin Graham

Are you defending God with lies?

Do you make your dishonest arguments for his sake?

Will you slant your testimony in his favor?

Will you argue God’s case for him?

What will happen when he finds out what you are doing?

Can you fool him as easily as you fool people?

No, you will be in trouble with him

if you secretly slant your testimony in his favor.

Doesn’t his majesty terrify you?

Doesn’t your fear of him overwhelm you?

Your platitudes are as valuable as ashes.

Your defense is as fragile as a clay pot.

Job 13:7-12 (NLT)

Shame, shame on the ten Republicans who joined with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in impeaching President Trump yesterday. After all that he has done for our country, you would turn your back and betray him so quickly? We have never had a president like him in my lifetime. He gave us lower taxes, a strong economy, and low unemployment. He made NATO take notice and pay their own way. He had the guts to take on North Korea and meet with their leader personally. He didn’t let China walk all over us. Just his Mideast peace initiatives in the last couple of months deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. He has defended religious liberty like no president before him, and that matters to all people of faith. He has worked to bring prison reform and secured our southern border. He defeated the ISIS caliphate in Syria, and he strengthened our military. He was also the most pro-life president we have ever had. But the House Democrats impeached him because they hate him and want to do as much damage as they can. And these ten, from his own party, joined in the feeding frenzy. It makes you wonder what the thirty pieces of silver were that Speaker Pelosi promised for this betrayal.

President Trump isn’t a perfect person. I don’t support or agree with some of the things the President said and did the last couple of weeks. January 6 was a low point in his presidency. We knew he had flaws when he ran for office in 2016. But I, and millions of others, voted for him because of the platform and policies he promised. I still support those. The Democrats have been trying to get rid of the President since the day he took office. What they did yesterday only further divides our nation. I hope President-elect Biden will keep his word and work for unity as he has said.

Jill Dinwiddie, women’s rights advocate, was ‘principled and passionate until the end’

We are saddened to learn that Jill Dinwiddie has died. She helped get women elected to office, led campaigns to end domestic violence and advocated for women's rights. Jill was especially active in the fight for reproductive health care and Planned Parenthood. Our community is so much stronger thanks to Jill Dinwiddie.

Helping establish a new Planned Parenthood health center in Charlotte was among her proudest accomplishments, her family said.

These Black Capitol Police Officers Describe Fighting Off "Racist-Ass Terrorists"

“If you’re going to treat a group of demonstrators for Black Lives Matters one way, then you should treat this group the same god damn way. With this group you were being kind and nice and letting them walk back out. Some of them got arrested but a lot of them didn’t. Everyone who came into that Capitol should have been arrested regardless if they didn’t take anything.”

Two Black officers told BuzzFeed News that their chief and other upper management left them totally unprepared and were nowhere to be found on the day.

Raleigh - Following counting updates the race for Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court, NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement:

“With more than 2,000 wrongfully rejected absentee and provisional ballots yet to be included in the final tally, and with a statewide recount still pending, the race for Chief Justice is far from over.
