Supreme Court hears first religious liberty case with Judge Barrett
The case is over Philadelphia’s refusal to place foster children with a Catholic foster agency because the agency does not place children with homosexual couples for adoption.
Plaintiff Sharonell Fulton stated, “My faith has led me to become a foster mother to children that society had abused and discarded. As a single woman of color, I’ve learned a thing or two about discrimination over the years — but I’ve never experienced the vindictive religious discrimination the City’s politicians have expressed toward my faith.”
Trump sues over documented voter fraud
The 2020 U.S. presidential election remains a close race. As of yesterday, The Associated Press still had 264 Electoral College votes for former Vice President Joe Biden and 214 for President Donald Trump.
Several states are still counting votes like Arizona and Nevada where Biden is leading and Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia where Trump is leading.
The Trump campaign challenged the results in Wisconsin and Michigan where the media declared Biden to be the winner by a slim margin. The Trump campaign is also suing Pennsylvania and Georgia over vote counting irregularity.
To be sure, there are documented instances of voter fraud at the United States Postal Service, according to whistleblowers who have spoken on video to Project Veritas. Check out the link in our transcript at www.TheWorldview.com.
Plus, the Detroit Free Press reports that “Officials are investigating wonky election results in Antrim County in northern Michigan that could add a few thousand votes to the tallies for President Donald Trump and Republican Senate candidate John James. Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy, a Republican who ran unopposed and won a third four-year term Tuesday in the strongly GOP county, said … it appeared that some of the results were somehow scrambled after the cards were transported in sealed bags from township precincts to county offices and downloaded onto a computer.
“In 2016, Trump won Antrim County with about 62% of the vote, compared with about 33% for Democrat Hillary Clinton. Trump beat Clinton by about 4,000 votes. Wednesday morning, Antrim results showed Democrat Joe Biden leading Trump by slightly more than 3,000 votes, with 98% of precincts reporting.”
Daniel 4:17 says, “The Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.”

98% of Big Tech employees contributed to Democrats
The Center for Responsive Politics found employees of internet companies gave about 98 percent of their political contributions to Democrats this election cycle.

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt donated about $6 million. And Netflix CEO Reed Hastings donated over $5 million. The funds went to super PACs backing Democratic candidates.
The biggest Republican funder was venture capitalist and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel who donated $2 million in support of a Republican candidate.
James 1:11 reminds us, “For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits.”
The changing demographics of American voters
Pew Research released a study on what the 2020 electorate looks like.
