President Biden: "Angry and Concerned" About Rittenhouse

In a statement issued from the White House on Friday, President Biden declared the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case left him "feeling angry and concerned" while acknowledging that "the jury has spoken."

As you know, Kyle Rittenhouse was found "not guilty" on all five counts against him.

Why would the president be "angry and concerned?"

And why are leftists now claiming that the massacre at the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wis., Sunday evening is "karma" for the Rittenhouse case?

Mr. President, we should all be concerned.  

But how should our concern be directed?

Be informed, not misled.

In his official statement from the White House, President Biden said: "While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken."

He continued, as President Trump did during his presidency, to "urge everyone to express their views peacefully."

But they aren't doing that.

The revolution has started? 

The Daily Caller is reporting that "Black Lives Matter activist Vaun L. Mayes is suggesting that the Waukesha, Wisconsin incident, that killed five people Sunday, may have been a reaction to the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict."

The Caller says that Mayes is saying that it "sounds like the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade."

An Illinois Democrat leader, Mary Lemanski, has described the Christmas parade rampage in Wisconsin as "karma" for the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse.

The Caller also notes that the "verdict has sparked outrage and protest from activists and members of the media across the US."

Demonstrators chanted in favor of a "communist revolution" at a Chicago protest led by Rev. Jessie Jackson on Saturday. In New York, protesters gathered in Manhattan and Brooklyn with calls to "burn the precinct to the ground."

Police in Portland, Or. formally declared the demonstrations to be "riots" as activists destroyed the front gate of the Multnomah County Justice Center while throwing objects at the police officers trying to restrain them.

The Christmas parade.

Darrell Brooks has been charged with homicide for the killing of five people in the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin after he, at high speed, drove into the crowd along the parade route and into some who were marching in the parade on Sunday.

Police Chief Daniel Thompson says the police have ruled out terrorism as a motive for the tragic incident, but confirmed that Brooks has been charged.

Police say Brooks may have been fleeing from another incident, possibly a knife fight.

The hospital has reported that they are treating 18 children between the age of 3 and 16, including three sets of siblings. The medical director says the injuries range from scrapes to broken bones and serious head injuries---with eight kids undergoing surgery Sunday and yesterday.

The police chief also told the press, with his voice breaking, the five people who were killed ranged in age from 59 to 81.

Sadly the man arrested over the deadly car attack on the Christmas parade should have been behind bars following an earlier arrest this month, but was released on an "inappropriately low" bond days before the attack, the district attorney admitted yesterday.

The city, of course, is shaken to the core by the events that "canceled" what was intended to be a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

I'm certain we'll be learning more details today, and in the days to come.

Concern for America

America as we have known it, is under attack. We have entered a season of identity-based politics and a kind of tribalism.

There has always been a struggle in our country over our history, our meaning, and our future.

The Founders faced a tremendous challenge in bringing together different views and competing factions to build a "united" states. The possible consequence of failure was on their minds---they spoke of it often in Philadelphia in 1787.

In the minds of conservatives today we are faced with the task of defeating the progressive attack on everything America has been, and what we have stood for.

America was the first nation in history founded on a creed---a belief that freedom is a gift from God to be protected by the government, not given by the government.

Alexander Hamilton, in 1775, said: "The sacred rights of mankind" are imprinted in human nature, "by the hand of the Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power."

James Madison summarized the American achievement with these words: "The happy Union of these States is a wonder; their Constitution is a miracle; their example, the hope of Liberty throughout the world."

Today the so-called "progressives" are obsessed with destroying and "building back better" the greatest nation in human history.

Franklin D. Roosevelt warned his fellow "progressives"---

"We cannot read the history of our rise and development of our nation, without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic. Where we have been the truest and most consistent in obeying its precepts, we have obtained the greatest measure of contentment and prosperity."

Yet today, the secular progressives are attacking the very foundations of America; our faith, our freedoms, and our families.

Democrat Harry Truman said:

"The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don't have a fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state."

Ronald Reagan said:

"Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."
