Amazing platform

It is really quite impressive as you walk through the Super Bowl preparation. There is sponsor after sponsor lining the closed roads in downtown Phoenix, Az around the Convention Center. There is media from around the world. There are families holding hands walking down the sidewalk. There are the players giving their wisdom about game prep. Behind the scenes, there is preparation for news conferences, security, moving people from one venue to another and so one. There is a bustle going on that is unprecedented except for once a year in this particular event. Either you love it or hate it. But I can say this without hesitation: it is an amazing ministry platform.

Yes, I have heard about the human trafficking that occurs during the Super Bowl. Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" It is not football's fault that there is human trafficking. I know personally that the NFL works extensively with local law enforcement against it. And yes, there are players and people associated with them who say and do the wrong things, represent the wrong morals, set bad examples. But having worked with many of these young men over the years, I know that there are many, many more who are standout examples of the very types of role model that you would want for your children and grand children.

Over the years, I am sure most have heard that the majority of professional football players die younger, go bankrupt more, are divorced more often, are unemployed at a higher rate than the public, commit suicide more and are arrested more than the general population. These "facts" are simply not true. I know, I conducted an extensive investigation to find where these myths came from and what were the actual statistics. I found that these myths were made up in an off-the-cuff conversation overheard by a reporter and then were reported and embellished over and over again. Truth is arrest rates are lower, divorce rates are lower, employment is higher, suicide rates are lower, and former players actually live longer than men in the general population.

You don't normally hear about the good guy. He is boring to report about. You don't hear about my friend Eddie who snatches kids out of the jaws of drugs and crime and mentors them to be all they can be; or my friend Aeneas who brings folks of diverse backgrounds together and helps rebuild homes in the inner city of St Louis; or James who has a group of men he holds accountable through his phone calls and prayers; or Curtis who talks to high school athletes about college and unashamedly preaches Christ; or a hundred more men who learned how to live their lives, or change their lives so they can change others because of the sport of football. It's not all bad; it's an amazing platform. And there are many who are using that platform to make disciples of Christ. We are seeing it here during Super Bowl week in Phoenix.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
