Headline: FBI Probes Threats Directed at House Democrats
Federal law enforcement officials are looking into at least two possible threats directed at members of Congress and their families that Democrats suggest are related to their vote for health care reform.
More than 10 lawmakers have complained they've received threats since the run-up to Sunday's House vote on a health insurance overhaul, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Wednesday, and law enforcement officials are taking the allegations seriously.
Headline: Republican Eric Cantor's Campaign Office Shot At
Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor said Thursday that his Richmond campaign office has been shot at and that he's received "threatening e-mails" -- but at the same time the House minority whip accused top Democrats of trying to exploit the threats they've been receiving for "political gain."
Cantor said "a bullet was shot through the window" of his campaign office. The incident happened Monday, Fox News has learned, the latest in a rash of apparent threats and acts of intimidation against members of Congress. Most of the threats so far have been reported by Democrats, but Cantor -- the No. 2 Republican in the House -- is one of about 10 lawmakers who has asked for increased security protection, Fox News has learned.
Readers, there is nothing worse that could happen in the tense political climate we're presently witnessing in the United States of America than for violence to erupt.
If (KEYWORD: IF) there actually is a Leftist revolution in opposition to the will of the American people underway, as many from the Right suspect is the case, the very last thing conservatives, particularly conservative Christians who've already been labeled as so-called 'right-wing extremists', need is the Left in possession of anything remotely close to a legitimate reason to demonize or lash out against us.
As I've been documenting here, the Left has been masterfully deceiving large portions of the American populace through their allies, the mainstream media, for some time now concerning the character and motives of anyone and everyone they feel poses any sort of threat to the Obama administration's agenda for changing America. Therefore, exercising extreme restraint in the face of what appears a grave threat to our Republic is advisable. Acting otherwise, in any sort of revolutionary environment, real or perceived, would serve the Left. Who in their Right mind would want to do THAT? Not me. No way!
Please, Christians. Encourage everyone in your circle of influence to be patient and longsuffering in keeping with the teachings of scripture. This is a time for us to turn to God in prayer, not to Smith & Wesson.
If our nation falling into some sort of revolution, bankrupty or profound disarray is part of God's end times prophetic plan, there is nothing anyone can do to stop it through violence. If there remains hope for our nation, petitioning God to help us is our very best course of action. We can ill afford to forget that at a time like this.
2nd Chronicles 7:14: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Christians, we have been sent forth "as sheep in the midst of wolves", according to Matthew 10:16.
This is a time for us to be "wise as serpents, and harmless as doves".
