Former Vice President Joe Biden has taken the lead in the delegate count in the Democratic Party nomination race over Senator Bernie Sanders.
The next vote will be on March 10th. But right now it looks like none of the candidates will have the 1991 delegate majority needed to win the nomination without the Superdelegates voting.
This is of course the nail in the coffin of Senator Sanders’ hope at getting the nomination by delegate count. The DNC will not give the nomination to someone who isn’t really a member of the Democratic Party. And the establishment choice is Mr. Biden.
So here is my early congratulations to Mr. Biden, the Democratic Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2020 election.
The question becomes who will be Biden’s running mate. And will Senator Sanders again submit to the DNC choice like he did in 2016 or will he run as an independent candidate for President with his supporters.
2020 will be an interesting election for sure. A three-way race would be something to talk about. But I’m just going to go ahead and congratulate President Trump on winning the election to his 2nd term as President of the United States.
A couple of weeks ago while campaigning in South Carolina, former Vice President Joe Biden stopped at St Anthony Catholic Church to attend Mass. Biden is a lifelong Catholic and it’s quite common for candidates to attend local religious services while on the campaign trail. What makes this visit special is what happened next.
Rev. Robert Morey denied communion to Biden at the service. The reasoning was simple. Biden supports abortion and the Church cannot condone that support by way of sacrament.
The Left is up in arms about this and they are demanding an apology from the priest and from his Bishop. Even dictating to the Church that the Bishop should instruct other priests on how to behave towards politicians. Doesn’t this violate the Left’s sacred separation of Church and State? Except when the Left is dictating terms of course.
It is the job of the Church to teach and to discipline its flock when they have gone astray. Denying of the sacrament of communion is only the first step in this process and it sends a strong message that there is a grievous error in judgement and actions on the part of the one who has been denied.
The wayward Child of God must seek absolution and repent in word and deed to once again enjoy the blessings that are to be had in good standing with the Holy Church.
If, however, he does not repent from his transgressions and even blames the Church for his own failings. Then the Church is obligated to take the matter further.
The Catholic Church used to exercise its authority to bring wayward lords and kings back into line with sound doctrine. And I think they should do so today as well. And the Catholic Church has every right to administer discipline to its members, as any church does, no matter their rank or status.
If Biden, or any other Catholic, of any nationality or political party, goes against the teachings of the Church then they should be disciplined. If the denying of communion doesn’t get the message across then perhaps being excommunicated will get the message loud and clear to them. Of course this would have to be done by their Bishop and I hope at some point one will take this action of discipline.
In the meantime, keep praying for Biden’s repentance and change of heart where he errors in the ways he thinks and acts. While there is still breathe, there is still hope.
It’s official. The State Department has released a report showing that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton violated Federal rules and regulations while using her private email server for government business. And those rules and regulations carry the full force of Federal Law.
Hillary Clinton has broken Federal Law. If it was you, good reader, you would be arrested and in jail awaiting trial in a Federal Court. But a Clinton doesn’t go to jail. They run for President of the United States.
We are now at the “wait and see” period. Does the Department of Justice and the FBI press charges and arrest Hillary Clinton as they should or do they just let her go free?
If charges are pressed and she is arrested, it would be the end of her political career. The White House bid would be over. Leaving Bernie Sanders to be the nominee unless this is what causes Joe Biden to enter the race. He is more popular among the Democrats.
If no charges are pressed and she is not arrested. Then Hillary will walk away from being guilty of a Federal Crime. Proving once again that the Clinton’s are above the law. She could end up being pardoned by Obama before he leaves office, thus preventing a Republican President from having those files charged and having Hillary arrested and tried.
