It is so important that we keep calm.  Don’t give the enemy any ground.  Pray that God will keep your hearts and minds in perfect peace.  The deception is so great it is almost impossible to determine right from wrong, truth from lies.  The enemy of your soul wants to keep you in confusion.  He wants you to doubt GOD.  He wants you to live in fear.  He wants to be driven by negative thoughts and emotions.  

You are being driven to exasperation.  By design. 

ex•as•per•ate – ĭg-zăs′pə-rāt″

  • To make very angry or impatient; annoy greatly.
  • To increase the gravity or intensity of.
  • Irritated; inflamed.

Fathersdo not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.  Colossians 3:21

“And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”  Ephesians 6:4

The world is being driven to exasperation.  The powers that are driving world events are creating an environment that leaves people frustrated, frightened, hopeless and defeated.  People in this state of mind are easily controlled.  They cannot think properly.  This is what abusers always do to their victims.  


Number 9 stands in the symbolism for the planet MARS

Unbelievably, any number times nine equals nine (18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63 etc)  According to Jewish law, once something is done three times it is considered a permanent thing; we have connected to it and connected it to this world; Nine is three times three

Ancient Greek pagans held nine sacred because to them nine symbolized the 9 Muses or sister goddesses

Satanists take delight in the number nine for a couple of reasons. First, Satanists enjoy reversing, mirroring and inverting symbols, letters and numbers. When you turn the number “9” upside down you get “6” which makes up the number of the Beast (666)  In accordance to occult numerological reduction, strings of numbers are added up until we are left with one.   9 is a form of the number of the beast as 666 is 6+6+6=18 & 1+8=9.

The Number 9 is connected with Jesus Christ, because he “gave up the ghost in the ninth hour”.

THE NUMBER 9 is the largest and last digit correlating “finality” and completeness. The number of finality or judgment is committed unto Jesus as “the Son of man” (John 5:27; Acts 17:31). It marks the end and issue of all things as to man — the judgment of man and all his works. Source


And king Nimrod reigned securely, and all the earth was under his control, and all the earth was of one tongue and words of union., and Terah with all his household were then the first of those that served gods of wood and stone.  And Terah had twelve gods of large size, made of wood and stone, after the twelve months of the year, and he served each one monthly

Terah is mentioned in Jesus’ genealogy in Luke 3:34. Terah was the son of Nahor, who was of Noah’s son’s Shem’s line. Nahor fathered Terah at the young age of 29 years (Genesis 11:24), but Terah was 70 years old before his three sons, Abram, Nahor, and Haran, were born (verse 26).
Terah would have had plenty of opportunities to talk with these great men about the events leading up to the present time. He lived in the ninth generation after the flood. It is significant to stress that Shem was alive when Abram was born.
And all the princes of Nimrod and his great men took counsel together; Phut, Mitzraim, Cush and Canaan with their families, and they said to each other, Come let us build ourselves a city and in it a strong tower, and its top reaching heaven, and we will make ourselves famed, so that we may reign upon the whole world, in order that the evil of our enemies may cease from us, that we may reign mightily over them, and that we may not become scattered over the earth on account of their wars.
26. And all these people and all the families divided themselves in three parts; and first said, We will ascend into heaven, and fight against Him; (the third division of those who said, We will ascend to heaven and fight against Him, the Lord scattered them throughout the earth)  the second said, We will ascend to heaven and place our own gods there and serve them; and (those who said We will ascend to heaven and serve our gods, became like apes and elephants😉  the third part said, We will ascend to heaven and smite him with bows and spears;  (those who said, We will smite the heavens with arrows, the Lord killed them, one man through the hand of his neighbor)  and God knew all their works, and all their evil thoughts, and he saw the city and the tower which they were building.
 And the Lord knew their thoughts, and it came to pass when they were building they cast the arrows toward the heavens, and all the arrows fell upon them filled with blood, and when they saw them they said to each other, Surely we have slain all those that are in heaven.
35. And the Lord smote the three divisions that were there, and He punished them according to their works and designs, those who said We will ascend to heaven and serve our gods, (became like apes and elephants); and those who said, We will smite the heavens with arrows, (the Lord killed them, one man through the hand of his neighbor); and the third division of those who said, We will ascend to heaven and fight against Him, (the Lord scattered them throughout the earth).
In the above chapter from the book of Jasher we see the truth about what the evil ones desire.  It has not changed in all these thousands of years.  
   1. They want to make/choose their OWN GODS – We will ascend to heaven and             serve our gods – (man still wants to choose to serve OTHER gods, and even                 become gods themselves).
   2. They want to fight against the heavens with man made weapons – We will                    smite the heavens with arrows.  (operation High Jump, Chemtrails, etc…)
   3. They want to KILL GOD – We will ascend to heaven and fight against Him                    (they know now that they are not likely to be able to physically kill GOD, so                they will settle for killing the memory of HIM.  
I am saddened at the thought that we most likely are seeing the end of the land that we love.  It is most likely that we are starting the times of the GREAT TRIBULATION.  The ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT of ANTICHRIST as foretold in the Word of GOD, is beginning to manifest.  


O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
above thy fruited plain
America, America,
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea
O beautiful for patriot dream
that sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
undimmed by human tears
America, America, God shed
His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea
United States of Americais 244-years-old.  Obama (who held office as the 44th President, has stolen the Presidency from our 45th President and will rule unabated starting in the 245th year (2021) of what was once known as the United States of America. 

Barack Obama’s big mansion in Washington, D.C. is where he is conducting his war on President Donald Trump

Obama’s office at 1250 24th Street NW, Washington, D.C.

So what is going on in his West End offices? Obama’s sick secret treasonous plans are real. This will blow your mind.

Obama stayed in Washington, D.C., something no other modern former president has done.  The focus had been on Obama’s Kalorama neighborhood mansion as the headquarters for his evil planning  but the real action is inside his expensive offices in Washington, D.C.. Just a 20-minute walk to the White House Obama has twelve man team of spies working to report everything that goes on, and/or is unreported.

Sam Stein, one of the liberal media Obamaites, spilled the beans when he wrote a piece on how Obama is directing his Organizing for Action soldiers to take out President Donald Trump. He wrote about Obama’s covert actions, trying to spin it as just activism, but we all know it goes well beyond that.

In the Huffington Post, Stein wrote, “Obama’s also dispatched his team ― more than a dozen strong, working out of an office in the West End neighborhood of Washington ― to keep tabs on the unreported stories.” The translation is that, within walking distance from the White House, Obama has twelve spies who are dispatched to gather intelligence on Trump. What else is meant by “unreported stories”?

Despite his pledge not to interfere, Obama reportedly has deployed a team of over a dozen operatives to “keep tabs on the unreported stories” relating to himself and the Trump administration. They work from an office in Washington, D.C. [Source: Breitbart]

“There is a regular conference call for ‘the Obama network,’ a meeting the ex-president attended with former aides a few weeks back, and ad hoc calls to Senate and House Democrats, state-based groups and grassroots organizations,” Stein reports. Obama is directing the assault on Trump from his D.C. mansion, where he is using his connections to keep the Democrats under his control; that’s what he is doing in those phone calls.


Anyone with eyes to see, knows that Obama is the driving force behind the political scene in Washington right now.  He is really just a puppet of the UN.  There is a great deal of power and money behind him.


HERE WE GO: Obama’s Already Working BehindTheScenes To

HERE WE GO: Obama’s Already Working BehindTheScenes To Collude In The 2020Election February 19, 2019 Martin Former President Barack Obama has been working behind the scenes and met with four top 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.
The truth is that the real forces behind it all are spiritual/demonic.  There is so much about symbolism and numbers that we don’t understand.  There is great power in these things and that power is being manipulated by demonic forces who fully understand them.  There is great significance in the numbers 44 and 45
You may not be aware, but TRUMP could be considered the 44th President

While Donald Trump will be the 45th president, he will be only the 44th person — the 44th male — to actually hold the job.

Recall that President Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms: He won election in 1884, lost in 1888, and won again in 1892 — so he is considered both the 22nd and 24th president.   Source: USA TODAY

“Darkness”, Ignorance, Disharmonious such as the Modern Standard Tuning of 440hz producing a “disharmonious” frequency in opposition to the harmonious 432hz

There is a hypothesis that the change from 432 Hz to 440 Hz was directed by Nazi purposeful publicity serves, Joseph Goebbels. He utilized it to make individuals think and feel a specific way and to make them a detainee of specific awareness. At that point around 1940, the United States presented 440 Hz around the world, lastly, in 1953 it turned into the ISO 16-standard.

Two of the widows of those killed in Munich were present and said the remembrance had brought closure. in an official ceremony organized by the International Olympic Committee.

Properties of the number 45


  • Symbolizes the cosmic solidarity which is expressed in the life of all the beings – 5 x 9 = 45 – according to R. Allendy.
  • A compass opens at forty five degrees indicates that the matter is not completely dominated: there is not perfect balance between the forces of the spirit and the matter.
  • a 45 degree angle with compass and straightedge or ruler. It works by constructing an isosceles right triangle, which has interior angles of 45, 45 and 90 degrees.
  • J. Boehme calls numbers 44, 45 and 46 the trinity of the human life.
  • The number 45 has an arithmetical curiosity. The sum of first nine numbers placed in increasing or decreasing order, 123456789 and 987654321, gives obviously 45. And the difference between these two great numbers gives a result of nine digits, 864197532, of which the sum of each one gives also 45!
  • In the book of Daniel of the Old Testament, the prophet Daniel speaks about a period of painful wait of 45 days declaring blissful who will pass it and reaches the end of this period. In the chapter 12 verse 11, he speaks that 1290 days will be passed between the establishment of the idolatrous cult by the Antichrist until the end the world. Then, following this chronological indication of the verse 11, he adds this other to the verse 12: “Blissed is he who perseveres and attains 1335 days”: 1335-1290=45 days.
  • The numerical value of Hebrew word GAVLE meaning redemption, ADM meaning Adam with the final letter “mem” equal to 40, and HBLE meaning insult, gives each one 45.
  • 15 + 15 + 15 is 45 . 1+5 is 6 so 666 =45

  • The number 45 is used 3 times in the Bible.
  • The word fidelity is mentioned 45 times in the Bible.

There is a great deal of effort being expended to keep TRUMP out of office.  I am still not sure if this is all a part of the great deception or if TRUMP is really trying to defeat the evil plot.  Trump is a member of the elite/royal line.  Though at times it seems that the royals are not too happy about that fact. 

What is happening in America right now on both sides of the political scene is all designed to bring us to chaos, even to civil war.   DO NOT BUY INTO THE EVIL ENERGY.  Maintain your composure.  Keep the faith.  DO NOT let fear and/or anger have any place.  DON’T BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR OR SEE FROM THE MAINSTREAM.

Exposing Corruption

“The new American Revolution 2.0 is upon America. That was the WORST staged event at the US Capitol that I have ever seen. Everyone of those ACTORS that ended up in the Capitol Building were paid actors. There was ZERO Police Presence at the Capitol Building and I am glad that Trump got out of Washington. We are watching the Coup come to an end and it was interesting to see that the MSM are calling it a coup and it really is a Coup. A coup against Trump. Anyway Trump is now at an Elite Military Communications Base in Abilene, Texas where he is watching his Vice President finish off his Presidency as he sits in the Bird Seat. Get ready for some serious announcements. America is on the Brink. Treason is the End Game.




Antifa Infiltrators Storm Capitol, “These Aren’t Patriots”. Antifa agitators disguised as ‘maga’ supporters

2:05 AM – Today#1

PUBLISHED: 2:03 PM 6 JAN 2021  UPDATED: 10:20 PM 6 JAN 2021President Trump Says Go Home:
Antifa Infiltrators Storm Capitol, “These Aren’t Patriots”
God help us… it looks like evil will win and the revival of the United States has been successfully snuffed.
by Georgette
Well, we knew it was going to happen… antifa agitators disguised as ‘maga’ supporters stormed the capitol building and caused the shooting of at least one woman.
Update: Police let them in:
Now, the president (in the most defeated video I’ve ever seen) has told supporters to go home.
Earlier, he called in the national guard. Just The News reported:
At President @realDonaldTrump’s direction, the National Guard is on the way along with other federal protective services. We reiterate President Trump’s call against violence and to remain peaceful.— Kayleigh McEnany (@PressSec) January 6, 2021
I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2021
Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2021
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) also urged protestors to remain peaceful, tweeting out “Thank you to the Capitol Police for protecting the People’s House. Protestors have a Constitutionally-protected right to be heard, but I urge them to remain peaceful.”
Earlier, Congress halted the electoral college vote certification as lawmakers in both chambers were evacuated from the House and Senate floors to their offices. Some have been given gas masks to shield them from the tear gas being deployed by the Capitol police.
Other voices from the Senate GOP caucus have released statements urging peace and lawful behavior as protestors continue to clash with Capitol police.
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who led a group of Senators today in contesting the electoral college slate certification, tweeted that “those storming the Capitol need to stop NOW.”
Those storming the Capitol need to stop NOW. The Constitution protects peaceful protest, but violence—from Left or Right— is ALWAYS wrong. And those engaged in violence are hurting the cause they say they support.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) January 6, 2021

(I always personally loathe when people/polIticians talk like this, as IF ANY RIGHT…would behave like that. Playing both sides. COWARDS.  These are NOT RIGHTS.  One can tell by their dress, demeanor and tats. ALL CRAZY ANTIFA !=L.A.)

3:16 AM – Today#7

We’re in serious trouble. Right now, we know obviously that McConnell committed the ultimate act of treason, but the coup de grace may be committed tonight by Pence as he invokes the 25th amendment against Trump…..These demons have all been revealed….Completely sold out to Satan….You can see how they surrounded Trump with their operatives from the beginning…This has been a very long range, well thought out, genius level plot to overthrow America…They planned to do this with Hillary but Trump came along as an anomally….and put a wrench into their machine..

But…now we see the truth of what Trump has been dealing with. Completely surrounded by traitors….Pence, if he does this, will deserve a special spot in hell……100 million patriots will know what a snake he was…Every appointment Trump has been made, every advisor that surrounds him has been completely manipulated, right down to his VP pick…That’s how organized this enemy is….

The public never stood a chance…this is the big club, and you and I ain’t in it, as George Carlin said…..Trump needs to use the military while he still can against this enemy….before they use it against him and us…..That’s all I’m saying…When the most powerful military in the world gets taken over by Biden and used against the people of the US….We have no chance….Free humanity is dead…..

Our ONLY shot is Trump using this small window of time to stop this…I’m telling you right now, these demons aren’t going to wait until the 20th…They’re going to try to remove Trump by force right now….HE NEEDS TO MOVE NOW!!!!! NOW!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!……Do not sleep…Do not relax…Pull the trigger now….We’re not even being allowed to present the information in Congress today, like we thought we could force, did you notice that? No courts would hear the evidence…and before investigations could start…They shut down DC…..Did you notice how that works?…..THE ENEMY IS MAKING ITS FINAL MOVE NOW, AND TRUMP NEEDS TO RESPOND TONIGHT!….TOMORROW IS TOO LATE! RIGHT NOW….ORDER CHRIS MILLER TO START THE RAIDS….TAKE DOWN THE ENEMY TONIGHT!





A mob of protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday while Congress was in the process of certifying the election of President-elect Biden.

Following are statements and comments issued by prominent nonprofit leaders in the wake of the attack on the Capitol on Wednesday. We’ll continue to update this article.

Starsky Wilson, CEO of the Children’s Defense Fund

All our children, home for virtual instruction, watched on television as violent, anti-democratic white supremacists were allowed to storm and briefly occupy the U.S. Capitol — just as they watched this summer as activists for racial justice were met with tear gas, shot with rubber bullets, and arrested.

The events in Washington, D.C., are clear examples of the existential threat and trauma of white supremacy to our children, our country, and the world. Images of the home of our federal legislature under siege by domestic terrorists signify the extent to which the future of our democracy is much more a contest over power than a principled debate about public policy.

To build a world where marginalized and traumatized children flourish, leaders must prioritize their well-being. Today, this means countering and condemning the actions of the people engaged in violence at the Capitol and the president who incited it.

Our children are watching. Today, they saw America — that older white man, dressed in a red jacket, blue jeans, and long white socks soiled from sleeping outdoors and exposed — seething from blunt force. They were traumatized and robbed of their innocent belief in the “idea of America.” But they will remember who called for help, who rushed in to aid, and who stood up to build power for their future at this moment when our very democracy was at stake.

Tim Delaney, CEO of the National Council on Nonprofits

America’s charitable organizations are united in opposition to the actions of the mob that stormed the ultimate symbol of democracy, the U.S. Capitol.


The First Amendment protects the right to peaceably assemble and to petition government for a redress of grievances. It does not protect those who planned, participated, and incited a mob to act with violence rather than act peacefully and delivered insurrection instead of petitions.

As we all take a step back and call for calm, we should also resolve to hold violators accountable for their unlawful actions to prevent further outbreaks. In a democracy, disagreement is natural. Debate is healthy. But violence and mob rule are unacceptable.”

Daniel Cardinali, CEO of Independent Sector

As a matter of principle, we deplore violence, intimidation, and vandalism, especially which jeopardize the peaceful transition of U.S. democratic power, as we saw in Washington, D.C., today. A line was clearly crossed. By any metric, this is unacceptable as it jeopardizes public safety, puts people’s lives at risk, and derails our revered election system.

We support the practice of daily democracy in America, as well as nonviolence in our communities.

Social change in society occurs through peaceful civic participation and the casting, counting, and certification of votes — actions that we must stand collectively together to protect so all of us — in our diverse nation — can thrive.

Amy Sample Ward, CEO of NTEN

President Trump incited an angry mob as part of his ongoing attempt to undo President-elect Biden’s election.

NTEN supports the calls for the House of Representatives to impeach President Trump. We also support calls for the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove him from office immediately.


Meanwhile, our immediate challenges continue to need our combined efforts. Even during a coup, nonprofits across the U.S. are providing community members with food, shelter, and health care.

There is so much work ahead of us to create a just and racially equitable world, made even more visible with today’s attempted coup. We are still amidst a global pandemic. We will not reach that new world in one day. We can and will pick up this work together.

Marc Malloch-Brown, president of Open Society Foundations

Overnight we have watched astonishing scenes as hundreds of thugs incited by a criminal president invaded a country’s legislative chambers and caused mayhem and death in an effort to overturn the result of a democratic election.

Until four years ago I suspect few at the Open Society Foundations would have expected to use such words of condemnation about America. Founded to promote human rights and justice around the world, Open Society has never been blind to the mote in America’s own eye — a society with its brutal share of racial injustice and economic exclusion — but we, like so many, had counted on the authority of America’s democratic process to provide a way forward.

America’s moral leadership has been seared by the flames of what happened yesterday.

More than American democracy has been put on trial by yesterday’s events. The very values of open society already under threat from increasingly authoritarian governments around the world were under attack yesterday on the streets and steps of the U.S. Capitol. Yet as the Senate victories in Georgia also show, democracy can prevail.

We and our thousands of partners are not daunted. Our example and guiding light is yesterday in the U.S. state of Georgia, not yesterday in Washington.


Brian Hooks, CEO of Stand Together

The violence within the U.S. Capitol is the shameful and predictable consequence of reckless and dishonorable actions to overturn the voters’ clear decision in this election. And it represents the polar opposite of the values upon which our country was built.

The peaceful transition of power is one of the most essential aspects of our constitutional order and, indeed, our free society. It’s the most visible way we assure people that they can openly disagree without fearing for their lives or livelihoods, that government is constrained, and no person is above the law.

Without that basic and shared understanding, the freedoms that give life to the prosperity and community that Americans enjoy cannot persist. Societies that rely on violence to settle disagreements prioritize violence. And that means there can be no rule of law, no equal rights, no expectation of justice.

Our liberal order, our free society, our civilization is fragile. But it is also resilient. Congress reclaimed the Capitol from the mob to complete its constitutional obligation and certify this election. So must we all reclaim the civility and respect that our country requires of us.

In this moment, that means we must redouble our efforts to bring people of good faith but different perspectives together do the hard work to help more fully realize the promise of our country.

Marcus Walton, CEO of Grantmakers for Effective Organizations

For the philanthropic sector, 2021 may prove an inflection point — a moment upon which we will look in hindsight one day to determine the extent to which we were truly on the “right side of history.”

It is far past time to make sure we are putting our values into action and working to build an equitable future where we all can thrive. In recognition of our linked fates, we owe it to ourselves and the legacy of leaders who have come before us to dare and try.


Our experience is that being on the “right side of history” demands this from us all, today and going forward. To this end, we urge our members and other grant makers to assess your power to affect change, recognize your critical role in this societal moment, and reach out now to support the nonprofits, movements, organizers, and communities who are working to ensure that America delivers on its promise, for all people.

Stephen Heintz, CEO of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund

“The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol yesterday was distinctly un-American and an affront to our system of democratic government. Politicians who supported or enabled, actively or tacitly, this insurrection must be held to account. Elected officials from every party and at every level of government nationwide who serve in our democratic system at the will of the people have the duty not only to denounce yesterday’s actions but to rectify the campaign of disinformation and flat-out lies that brought us to this point.

As a philanthropic foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund did not endeavor to advance any particular election outcome. We did support organizations across the country working for a free, fair, and safe process that would allow every American to cast their ballot, every ballot to be counted, and the count to be realized in peaceful transition or continuation of power. That endeavor has been tested more this election cycle than perhaps any in history.

Americans harbor deep distrust of institutions; rampant misinformation and intentional disinformation are eroding our trust in one another. Economic inequality has skyrocketed, and moneyed special interests drown out citizen voices in our politics. Black and Indigenous Americans are still struggling for their lives. But none of this justifies the kind of violent attack we witnessed yesterday.

There is no “golden age of American democracy” to fall back on, only an opportunity — and an urgent need — to reinvent democracy to meet the needs of today and tomorrow. Doing so is the charge of all Americans.

Philanthropy has a special obligation to advance this common purpose. Democracy is the basis for every other public good our foundations support; studies have shown that the strength of a country’s democracy correlates to public health, clearer air, quality of education, social services, and so much more. Long after the acute anxiety of the 2020 election season has dissipated, philanthropy must continue its investment in the reinvention of American democracy.”

James Canales, president of the Barr Foundation

We can neither ignore nor forgot how we got to what we witnessed yesterday: this violence was incited by our own elected leaders. It was enabled by those whose own thirst for power and cowardice kept them from holding our president accountable. In pretending they could downplay or ignore his actions, they justified and amplified dangerous, undemocratic words and actions. In doing so, they made it evident that white supremacy still reigns in America.


One may wonder why a nonprofit, philanthropic institution such as the Barr Foundation should issue any statement. We do so not out of any sense of self-importance nor to imply any specialized knowledge of how we got here and what the solutions should be.

Rather we add our voice to the chorus of those speaking up because we must speak out. January 6, 2021, will forever be a date etched in our memories, and when we look back, it is our hope at Barr that we do so with abject horror at what occurred and a sense of pride that this served as the moment that we spoke out, stood up, and acted to counter everything that was so wrong and so antithetical to our country’s beliefs, and yet so indicative of our country today.

One image from yesterday still stands out for me: the workers in our nation’s Capitol cleaning up so our lawmakers could resume their work.

It is not lost that the workers in this image are all people of color, and they are cleaning up the mess left by an almost entirely white mob waving confederate flags, by rioters who would disenfranchise them of their rights, and by fellow citizens who bear animus toward them. Looking at this image, we must recognize that it has ever been thus.

The work to form a more perfect union will never be complete, and we have so much further to go. We will remain allies, champions and advocates in this work, motivated by the spirit that better days lie ahead. They must.

Don Chen, president of the Surdna Foundation (on Twitter)

This coup attempt is both unbelievable and completely predictable. These seditious fools will lose because they’ve shown their violent, lawless vision, and Americans are repulsed. We won’t let these right-wing radicals, white supremacists & conspiracy theorists define our future.


What gives me solace is the hope that what happened in Georgia will spread across the entire U.S. The organizers who spent a decade registering voters in Georgia — especially Black voters — have shown us a different vision of a peaceful, just, equitable and prosperous multiracial democracy.

Attaining a just and equitable future seems immensely difficult, given all this polarization. Achieving the transformative change required to attain it is the most viable pathway to rebuild our democracy, meet all American’s needs and protect our rights & freedoms.
