Democrats prepare to impeach Trump again
This week, tremendous political turmoil continues to rock the United States of America.
The U.S. House Democrats are planning to bring articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 9 AM Eastern Time.
The stated charge is that Mr. Trump “engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States.” The charges point out that the president exhorted the crowd last Wednesday to “fight like [expletive]” or “you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Dershowitz: Senate has no time to have second impeachment trial
Constitutional attorney Alan Dershowitz is warning legislators against any attempt to impeach the president, as the case could not be brought to trial until after Trump leaves office.
Listen to what the attorney said on Fox News Sunday morning.
DERSHOWITZ: “It will not go to trial. All the Democrats can do is impeach the president in the House of Representatives. For that, all you need is a majority vote. You don’t have to take evidence. There are no lawyers involved.
“But the case cannot come to trial in the Senate because the Senate has rules. And the rules would not allow the case to come to trial until 1pm on January 20, an hour after President Trump leaves office. Congress has no power to impeach or try a private citizen, whether it be a private citizen named Donald Trump or named Barack Obama or anyone else.”
Politico said that there is no legal case against the president as his speech at the rally last week is protected by the First Amendment.

“Behold, I am against you,
O most haughty one!” says te Lord God of hosts;
“For your day has come,
The time that I will punish you.

And no one will raise him up;
I will kindle a fire in his cities,
And it will devour all around him.”
Persecution of Christians likely to increase in 2021
What will persecution look like in 2021 for Christians around the world? 2020 was bad, and it looks like 2021 will only get worse. Martyrdoms and persecution of Christians in Nigeria, Africa and India increased significantly last year.
The Worldview spoke to William Stark of International Christian Concern about projections for persecution of Christians in 2021.
STARK: “It looks like persecution is going to continue or continue to escalate in a lot of the countries we’re already working in. I think we’ll definitely see ongoing persecution in Nigeria, if not an increase of persecution in Nigeria especially at the hands of Boko Haram. The end of 2020 we saw quite a few Boko Haram attacks, some of them making some pretty significant headlines in the media.
“We here at ICC are really concerned that we’re going to see more of that in 2021, which is ultimately going to mean more persecution for the Christians in Nigeria.”
Psalm 37:32,40 says, “The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him. The Lord will not leave him in His hand. … And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked.”
