Mike Pence shares ‘intimate’ dinner with right-wing pastor who prays for deaths of liberal justices

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife hosted a small gathering of right-wing Christian leaders in their official residence at the Naval Observatory.

The White House released a photo of the event Thursday, which “prayer warrior” Frank Amedia also announced in an email, reported Right Wing Watch.

Amedia said he and other religious right activists enjoyed “a very small and intimate dinner meeting with Vice President Pence and his wife Karen,” where they discussed an evangelical event March 20-22 in Branson, Missouri, hosted by apocalyptic televangelist Jim Bakker.

“I perceive that this timing is critical and strategic as I have been advising that I have received that February is a time of chaos in our nation politically,” Amedia told his followers, “with flash points on the coasts and in the heartland, as well as the caution of the ‘ides of March’ looming which will try to swallow up the spiritual surge of progress and pierce the heart of our political and church reformation.”

Amedia, a volunteer policy liaison for President Donald Trump’s campaign, founded the POTUS Shield network of pastors who believe government should be controlled by conservative Christians.

He told followers that Pence and his wife, who are conservative Christians, “are keenly aware” of the POTUS Shield’s work and asked Amedia to thank his followers on behalf of the vice president and Trump for their “relentless commitment to be a shield and weapon of spiritual force.”

Amedia and his followers believe Trump will help usher in a spiritual revival that will turn America into an explicitly Christian nation, and group members pray for God to “sweep away” Supreme Court justices who don’t share their viewpoint.

Justice Ginsburg sends out dire warning about the new Supreme Court ruling in Wisconsin election case

Published

on

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg issued a disturbing dissent on Monday as the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court intervened in Tuesday’s upcoming Wisconsin election with a move she warned could result in “massive disenfranchisement.”

The election, which includes the Democratic presidential primary, a Wisconsin Supreme Court race, and a raft of other local campaigns, has become embroiled in controversy as observers warn the coronavirus pandemic threatens the safety and integrity of the election. While Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has pushed to delay the election until June in light of the pandemic, the Republican-dominated legislature has refused to act, apparently believing the chaos caused by the crisis will depress turnout and benefit the GOP.
