A New President


The Riddle Report 01 20 2021

News Item #1

We have a new President. Actually two. We have a new current President Joe Biden and we have a new Standing By President Kamala Harris, although her title is Vice President.

Most observers don’t expect Biden to last more than one term with the Vice President expected to run in 2024. But there are also a great many who don’t believe Biden will finish his first term.

This is not due to any form of death, but rather to the strongly suspected, if not known, case of Dementia. We all saw evidence of it during the campaign to become the Candidate and again during the Presidential campaign itself.

But for the time being he is President of the United States of America. Some people are saying he’s not their President. That is foolishness. Whether you voted for him or not, he is your President as long as he holds that office.

As such, it is our duty as citizens to respect and honor him. You have the right to disagree with him, to oppose him, and fight against his agenda, but you do not have the right to malign him. Only the Democrats have that right as they demonstrated the last four years!

News Item #2

I did not watch the inauguration for two reasons. One I was busy and secondly, I have a pretty good idea what kind of President he will be. He may speak of unifying the country, but he and the Democrats in Congress have already telegraphed that disunity is their agenda.

The biggest question is what will he do beginning today? Will he push for the Green New Deal or for a stronger economy as Trump did; will he approach Covid-19 with a crushing lockdown or a balanced approach such as Trump did; and will he put globalism first or America first as Trump did?

Speeches are fine, but actions speak louder than words. We’ll wait and see.

News Item #3

I’ve noticed that Mitch McConnell has turned against Trump. Perhaps he thinks his constituency will forget. I doubt it.

News Item #4

While today is a sad day for Conservatives it is wise to remember that we survived 8 years of President Obama. We can survive Biden.

Christians need to pray for our new President as we are commanded in the Bible. America still has the best government in the world, and we need to pray for it and work to improve it. In two years the Biden/Harris legacy will be apparent.

What needs to be done is work to negate voter fraud and build a strong grass roots that can build upon the Trump campaign accomplishments.

News Item #5


This was the term we heard over and over from the news media. The word means ‘not proven to be true’ or ‘not supported by other evidence’.

But the media used it as a catch phrase. The fact is nothing can be substantiated if it is not first examined. At no time during the aftermath of the election was the evidenced looked at by the courts. Instead, judges dismissed the evidence without taking the time to examine it.

In the case of the Supreme Court, cases were refused because the litigants had no ‘standing’. This is foolhardy!

Every citizen of the United States, no matter what state they resided in, had standing. That is because everyone stood to lose or gain if fraud was found. The Court failed us. And this failure casts a cautionary light upon the Court for future cases no matter their nature.

It is scary.

What Will I Do?

First, let me tell you what I won’t do.

I won’t wring my hands and cry, “Oh me!”

I won’t take up arms against my government.

I won’t leave America.

But here is what I will do:

I will pray for our President.

I will pray for members of Congress.

I will pray for Supreme Courts judges.

I will pray for America.

I will pray for Revival.

By the way, that is what I have been doing for years!

Senator Cruz to Represent Case before SCOTUS


The Riddle Report 12 08 2020

The following blog is based on an article by Janita Kan in the Epoch Times. I have used excerpts from the article and enclosed them in ‘’.

I subscribe to the Epoch Times which carries timely news that impacts the United States. In this morning’s news (12/8/20) an article by Janita Kan caught my attention. Currently there is a case regarding the election before the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). That case concerns an ‘appeal seeking to block the state from taking further action to certify their election results.’

According to this article Senator Ted Cruz (R – Texas) is willing to make oral arguments before the Supreme Court on behalf of the appeal. I regard this as a heavy weight decision since the Senator has previously argued cases before the court. That is a fact that speaks to his standing before the court and his experience.

‘The appeal is currently pending before the Supreme Court after Pennsylvania Republicans filed a request to block the finalizing of certification citing constitutional challenges.

In the instance where the certification has been finalized, Republicans asked the court to restore the “status quo” by compelling Pennsylvania officials to nullify its actions until an order from the court.

The Republicans also asked the court to treat the request as a petition of certiorari, asking the court to review the lawfulness of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision.’

For those of you who did not know what certiorari is, I looked it up. It means, ‘a writ or order by which a higher court reviews a decision of a lower court.’

‘Cruz said that he was asked whether he would be willing to argue the case before the nation’s top court if the justices grant certiorari. The former Texas solicitor general said that he had agreed and that he would “stand ready to present oral arguments.”’

Folks, it is one thing for well-known lawyers to file lawsuits and argue before the courts, it is altogether different when a man of Sen. Cruz’ reputation and intellect agrees to do so. Yes, he has been a lawyer, but not every lawyer can argue a case before SCOTUS as he did 9 times between 2003 and 2008, plus he wrote 80 legal briefs. But it is more than that.

Senator Cruz is articulate, experienced, and has a solid reputation as a conservative and as a lawyer. I might remind you that he was a strong opponent to Donald Trump in the 2016 election. And he has been a strong backer of Trump in the Senate.

‘“Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA,” Cruz wrote in his statement.

As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe SCOTUS has a responsibility to the American People to ensure, within its powers, that we are following the law and following the Constitution.”’

‘In the case at hand, Pennsylvania Republicans escalated the case to the nation’s top court after their state Supreme Court overturned a lower court order blocking election officials from certifying the results of the 2020 election. The Pennsylvania justices also dismissed the case.

In an unsigned opinion, the state’s top court ruled to reverse Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough’s temporary injunction that would have prevented the state from taking further steps to complete the certification of the presidential race.’

While it is frustrating to be turned down by the state courts this was expected since they are primarily liberal justices, which are historically not strict constitutionalists. This has been an education for me as it probably has been for you.
