I could never have imagined living in such times. Imagine our grandparents reading these articles?
"Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."  Ps 16:11

Good to see your post, Marelis! Yes, the world is as it was at the time of the flood. You would think that this would motivate the church to be ready to receive Christ. But, like Jesus said, many are still in the world doing the things of the world. But, the wise will understand that the time is so very near. Let us look up for our redemption draweth nigh.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

‘Squad’ Member Uses Coronavirus Crisis to Push ‘Compassionate Release’ of Prisoners

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., a member of Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez’s “Squad,” advocated for the “compassionate release” of prisoners as the coronavirus spreads.

“I think now would be the time, to commute some sentences, to exact clemency and to take care of our most vulnerable. Ten percent of those incarcerated are over the age of 60 and already have an underlying condition. We should be using compassionate release,” Pressley told MSNBC.

Overcrowded prisons are a “Petri dish” for the virus, she continued, noting that she and the other “Squad” members are already lobbying the Bureau of Prisons to take action and release prisoners.

“Given the overpopulating and the fact that many of these facilities are already subpar and that many incarcerated men and women do not have access to soap, to alcohol-based hand sanitizers, to regular showers, what is the guidance, both for those incarcerated and for staff?” she said.

Releasing prisoners, some of whom have violent histories, would only make a bad problem worse, as Republican lawmakers have frequently warned. Even nonviolent felons pose a potential problem, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., argued when the Trump administration was first considering the First Step Act, which released thousands of federal offenders.

Less than a year later, two felons released under the First Step Act found themselves back in prison. The first criminal was arrested for trafficking thousands of dollars of meth, and the second was arrested for stabbing a man to death.

“Most important, when there are manifest injustices in individual cases, the proper course of justice is not to simply let out thousands of serious felons,” Cotton said last year.

Liberals Discover Segregated School in 2019

Just a few days ago, more than 300 high school students got up and left class to stage a protest. They unfurled a big banner on the street that read, “Strike for Integration.” Some of the kids yelled slogans into a bullhorn, just like Elizabeth Warren shilling for cash at a public sector labor union rally.

The striking students chanted slogans like, “End Jim Crow” and “Education is a right, not just for the rich and white.” The kids were terribly upset because in the year 2019, they say they are still attending a segregated school.

Huh? Where is this hotbed of racism? Is the school situated in some backwoods Appalachian holler? Must be somewhere out in that icky flyover country, right?

Actually, no. The “segregated” school that sparked a protest was Beacon High School in New York City. Beacon is a public school in a really nice neighborhood. It’s one of the best public schools in America, truth be told. In 2018, the Parent-Teacher Association at Beacon High raised $685,000.

Even though Beacon is a public high school, it is a very, very nice school. It’s so nice, in fact, that Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Bill De Blasio sent his daughter to school there. It has a fairly rigorous admissions process, too. 5,800 students applied to attend Beacon High as freshmen last year, while the school only had 360 slots available.

So, how is the public school in New York City that was good enough for one of Bill De Blasio’s kids a hotbed of racism and segregation? Here’s how the New York Times describes this hell-on-earth school, through the eyes of one of its Asian students:

“Sadie also said that she sometimes felt isolated at the school, which was about 9 percent Asian last year. She had exclusively white teachers last year.”

Got it? The school has too many white teachers, which proves that the school is segregated. Those same white teachers – probably not coincidentally – help the students at Beacon High achieve some of the highest standardized test scores in America. But those white teachers have got to go because they have the wrong skin color.

You can’t expect a non-white student to sit down, be quiet and learn something unless they have a teacher who is the same skin color, according to liberals. (I wonder if any of the white public-school teachers in America see what’s coming? I bet a lot of them will be secret Trump voters next year if they do!)

Here’s some more proof of the segregation at Beacon High: 47% of the student body is white. That’s just too many white kids for the black, Hispanic and Asian kids who outnumber them. Segregation, obviously.

In case you haven’t caught onto the “diversity” scam in America yet, it looks like there really is no lower limit on the number of white people allowed in order to achieve full diversity. The Beacon Hill segregation protest is a great illustration of this logic. If they could just get rid of all of the white teachers and the 47% minority white student body, the school would no longer be segregated! They’ll have achieved full diversity!

The Democrat Party is well on its way to accomplishing this as well. Last summer, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL) was the new Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Bustos single-handedly orchestrated the Democrats’ 2018 victory in which Democrats captured control of the House of Representatives. Bustos had figured out not only how to drive massive, all-time record-high donations for the DCCC, but also how to reach out to white female suburban voters in key districts. Those were the voters who put numbskulls like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Congress.

But then the Diversity, Integration, Equality, Woke-Hysterical, Immigrants, Transgenders, Eskimos and Yetis Committee (Bumper Sticker: DIE, WHITEY!) of the Democrat Party staged an uprising and fired Cheri Bustos on the sole basis of her skin color. She was a white lady, so she had to go.

Hilariously, fundraising for the DCCC has cratered since the Democrats diversified Cheri Bustos. Now we’ll get to watch the School Board in New York City doing the same thing. They’ve got to desegregate Beacon High!

After they fire all of the white teachers and force the 47% white minority students to attend a crappier school, just wait until test scores at Beacon High plummet. And after that inevitably happens, liberals in New York will blame the systemic white privilege and racism of the school as the problem.

Sens. Warren, Sanders Seek Federal Study To Protect Prostitutes
[Excerpts]

A group of Democrats, including 2020 presidential candidates Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), on Tuesday introduced a bill to study the effects of a recent sex trafficking law on the health and safety of sex workers [more commonly known as prostitutes – Ed.] in the U.S.

The SAFE SEX Workers Study Act, which calls for the government to conduct a wide-ranging study into the experiences of sex workers, emerges in response to evidence that a sex trafficking bill signed into law last year has dismantled vital online ecosystems for people engaged in consensual and often life-sustaining work in the sex industry.

The controversial bill, dubbed SESTA-FOSTA, made it easier to target websites with legal action for enabling sex trafficking online.

But it also effectively cut off services that allowed sex workers to communicate and organize online.

“As lawmakers, we are responsible for examining unintended consequences of all legislation, and that includes any impact SESTA-FOSTA may have had on the ability of sex workers to protect themselves from physical or financial abuse,” Warren, who has faced criticism over some of her previous positions on sex work, said in a statement on Tuesday.
