I was shocked to see the FBI search of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-lago home and equally shocked to see a bill that added 87,000 IRS agents with weapons.

Our nation is being run by fear, bullying, and greed.

It is time for all Christian and patriotic Americans to stand up and stop this move of intimidation against hard-working Americans.

Now before all you Trump haters start spewing your hateful comments about me, remember your freedom is next.

I admire the Dutch AND German farmers that are standing up for their rights against a government stance to reduce the amount of land they farm. Don’t kid yourself it is coming here as well.

How did we get to this point where other nations control what we do in this nation?

I believe a question needs to be asked. Where are the Pastors' and Christians' voices? Why are we letting this happen? Where is the Black Robe Regiment that changed a nation?

The British saw the American pulpit as largely responsible for American independence and government. For example, John Adams rejoiced that “the pulpits have thundered.”

Because Christian ministers established in America freedoms and opportunities not generally available even in the mother country of Great Britain, they were also at the forefront of resisting encroachments on the civil and religious liberties that they had helped secure.

The Black Robe Regiment suffered more than the regular troops. The British abused, killed, or imprisoned many other clergymen, who often suffered harsher treatment and more severe penalties than did ordinary imprisoned soldiers.

But the British targeted not just ministers but also their churches. As a result, of the 19 church buildings in New York City, 10 were destroyed by the British and most of the churches in Virginia suffered the same fate. (Reference www.blackroberegiment.com for more information.)

Do not be disheartened by what you see, for our strength and protection comes from Jesus. So look up and see your destiny in the fight to save America.
