President Donald Trump made it clear in the Oval Office Friday that the border Wall debate is really a competition between Americans who live in reality, and congresspeople and media pundits who live in a 2-D political narrative that does not overlap with reality.
Trump vetoed Congress’ bill to block his national emergency to build the Wall. He called his emergency an “action to defend our national sovereignty and stop criminal cartels.”
Trump referred to the “Angel parents, very important people to me and to many other people…They’ve been through a lot,” who were present at the signing.
“It is definitely a national emergency,” Trump said of our border crisis. “Rarely have we had such a national emergency.”
“I have a duty to veto it,” President Trump said, saying that he is proud of most House Republicans for voting with him, and noting that numerous Republican senators also bravely stood for the Wall. Trump called Congress’ action “a vote against reality.”
“It’s an invasion,” President Trump said of the illegal immigrant crime pouring over our border, again slamming “people who aren’t living in reality.”
Attorney general William Barr said that the “National Emergencies Act directly authorizes” President Trump to make the decisive response of building the Wall, and called the border crisis “exactly the kind of emergency” that presidents must address. Barr referred to the many national emergencies already on the book — 31 were still active when Trump declared his. “What you’ve done from a legal standpoint is solidly grounded in law,” Barr stated.
A representative of the American sheriffs said the sheriffs stand with President Trump in his effort to build the Wall to secure our Country.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
