Rev. Nathan Empsall discusses toxic Christianity, and how his organization, Faithful America is responding to such extremist activities:

"We are also looking hard at a website called GiveSendGo, which bills itself as the largest free Christian crowd-funding website, sort of a Christian version of Go Fund Me. GiveSendGo has made headlines over the past few months for helping fundraise for Kyle Rittenhouse, the Kenosha vigilante who murdered Black Lives Matter protesters last year and in the past couple weeks it’s been fundraising for Henry (“Enrique”) Tarrio, the leader of the white nationalist Proud Boys group." #toxicChristianity

A Nixonian "Saturday Night Massacre" nearly happened at the Department of Justice when acting Attorney General Jeff Rosen refused to Trump's demands to throw out the election results and also to investigate the Dominion voting systems.

That notorious Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who himself is facing two counts of securities fraud (a first-degree felony) and one count of failing to register with state securities regulators (a third-degree felony) investigation as he filed the Supreme Court lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania's, Michigan's, Wisconsin's and Georgia's election results is still at it.

The Supreme Court as we all know, threw the case out. Texas taxpayers may bear the brunt of his previous scandal with a Google lawsuit.

#Trumpism is not over yet folks.

Activists were arrested in New York City during MLK Day Black Lives Matter protest... and in Moscow today, Jan. 23, 2021 while demonstrating against the arrest of opposition leader Aleksei Navalny.

While I'd much rather be a dissident in the US than Russia, there is a certain amount of continuity when police beat up protesters in both countries under the pretext that those demonstrating in the streets "don't have a permit."
