Guatemala to VP Harris: "Kamala, Go Home"

VP Kamala Harris's "border evasion tour" had a bumpy start. About 25 minutes after her plane had taken off for Guatemala City, it was forced to return to Joint Base Andrews due to a "technical issue."

Getting off the plane she told reporters, "I'm good, I'm good"--- "We said a little prayer, but we're good."

Upon her delayed arrival in Guatemala City, it became apparent she had not said enough "little prayers" to satisfy some of the locals---they were waiting for her arrival, telling her to "go home."

No, they don't hate America, millions want to come here. It's the Biden administration they don't like.

Be informed, not misled.

VP Harris has refused to actually visit our southern border--- which the president has said is now her "responsibility"--- which is in crisis, but was ready to go to Guatemala City, not because of its beauty but because of its distant proximity to the "border." 

On approach to landing in Guatemala City, you fly over a community of tents and shacks and squaller and filth---much like we see in Portland and Seattle---but she was ready to brave all that.

Normally, the people in Guatemala are very nice. I've spent a lot of time with them.

However, VP Harris had a hard time getting there. About 25 minutes after takeoff her plane was routed back to Andrews Joint Base.

However the "technical" issues were soon solved and a bumpy start became a smooth ride---she even passed out cookies to the press, cookies decorated with the shape of her likeness. But on arrival, her trip became bumpy again.

She came bearing gifts.

She certainly came bearing gifts. According to the Washington Post, she arrived  with pledges for hundreds of thousands of coronavirus doses, $310 million in regional humanitarian aid, and a $4 billion for a long-term plan to "boost development and security across Central America."

Personally, having spent a lot of time in that country helping start and build churches, I can tell you the regular Guatemalan people couldn't care less about her money and vaccines. The money will disappear in the political whirlpool of corruption, and most of them won't want the shot anyway.

But the politicians embraced her. They always take all they can get---for the greater good. 

In fact, the Daily Caller published an article about her trip, focusing on the fact that foreign aid to Central America has been a "big, fat failure."

They tell about a meeting with an American contractor in a small Guatemalan town with the ambitious goal of igniting the local economy, but within a matter of minutes into his presentation to the local coffee growers---after they had passed out their pamphlet inviting the farmers to download an app to check coffee prices and be "part of modern agriculture," the farmers began laughing at them.

One of the coffee farmers, Pedro Aguilar, said he didn't see how any of this would keep people from going to the US border. He explained that all this money has never helped him or anyone like him, concluding, "Where does all the money go? Where's the aid? Who knows...?"

He knows. They all know where it goes.

The Guatemalan president has said the "Biden administration's message has led to an explosion of coyotes bringing people to the border" ---a 21 year high in border crossings.

The "gifts" aren't working, except for the ruling elite in third-world countries.

We have also lost our moral authority.

Kamala's greeting at the airport.

There was the official one, and the unofficial one. Let's skip the official one about all the money she was bringing, and get to the unofficial greeting that's really about moral authority.

Once known as the "Shining City on a Hill," we are now seen as the world's #1 purveyor of the homosexual and abortion agenda.

The unofficial greeters at the airport were holding signs, not asking for money, but asking for the vice president to "go home" and "solve your own corruption."

One tweet read, "We're against their agenda. (the Biden administration's agenda of imposing the LGBTQ, pro-abortion ideology). In Guatemala we're pro-life."

Guatemala is not the only country that shares those sentiments.

In 2015 President Obama visited Kenya, his father's homeland, Kenya was excited about his coming, but leaders in the country had similar concerns as those in Guatemala.

In fact, Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto told President Obama, "We are ready to decline any foreign aid if it is tied to gay marriages." 

Kenyan National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi and four other legislators warned President Obama against promoting homosexual "rights" in his visit to the country.

Muturi said, "Individual rights must not violate the rights of others. Those advancing gay rights must similarly appreciate our Christian, Islamic, and African traditional values which abhor homosexuality," reminding Obama that "sodomy is a criminal offense in Kenya."

Deputy President William Ruto told a church congregation the Sunday before Obama arrived, "We have heard that in the US they allow gay relations and other dirty things. I want to say as a Christian leader that we will defend our country Kenya, we will stand for faith and our country."

He added that "No amount of persuasions, theories or philosophy will make us change our position. We believe in God, this is a God-fearing nation and will continue to be so."

One National Assembly member said publicly that if he would have President Obama ejected from the House if he lectures MP's on "gay marriage."


This is personal to me. Having spent several years of my life in Christian missionary ministry---starting and building churches in nearly 150 villages and cities all over the world---often in the darkest, most demonic strongholds on earth. That included Kenya and Guatemala and other countries scattered across the globe.

I know these people. They're good, godly people---in fact, I'm still in touch with a number of old friends in some of these countries including Kenya. I love them.

In my lifetime, I've seen people like myself and many, many others from our beloved America, going to the darkest corners of the world with the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to change lives and cultures. 

Now I see them taking a stand for biblical Christianity, even when it means taking a stand against the leadership of America---the country that sent so many to share the Good News with them.

It's bittersweet. Thank God for their stand for righteousness, but it breaks my heart to see leadership leading the "City on a Hill" into a valley of the shadow of spiritual death.

That's why we do what we do. And why I so deeply appreciate all of you who support and make this ministry possible.

Pray for America.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
