This is a letter to our friends –

What’s happening

God’s hand is at work in American culture. I believe years of supplication in behalf of God’s purposes for America are being heard and answered. Do we deserve it? No indeed, no more than Old Testament Israel deserved all the second chances God gave them! The fact remains – Something good is happening in America. Take heart!

This year’s primary elections will be a mixture of good and bad. Voters are confused. That is by design. The public (I believe) is overwhelmingly in favor of draining the swamp. All sorts of tricks are being used to preserve the status quo.

In my Congressional District (CA CD7) we have an incumbent liberal Democrat. There are two Republican challengers; Andrew Grant, and Yona Barash. Neither are well known in the district. Barash has a solid conservative resume and is endorsed by well known conservatives. Grant has a less impressive resume and is endorsed by well known (my opinion) RINO activists including Mitch McConnell.

The choice should be a slam dunk – but – Trump’s name appears next to McConnell on Grant’s endorsement list! My suspicion is that Trump knows nothing, or little about it. The Trump “endorsement” will be hard to overcome in just three weeks where ballots are already being mailed in.

I suspect this sort of thing is taking place across the nation. There will be primary wins and losses for principled candidates trying to win a place on November’s ballot.

The situation changes in November. Even a liberal Republican is better than a Democrat because it becomes a numbers game rather than a principles game. The party with a majority of members is in control. In turn, the majority party controls the committees and the chairs. I am predicting a stunning, runaway victory for Republican candidates across the country this November. The liberal influence will be greatly diminished.

If you have not yet voted in your primary please do a bit of research. Ask a reliable friend, search for voter guides. Speak to a candidate if you can.

Here is my litmus test for a reliable principled candidate:

· Do you support the 2nd amendment? (Pro gun)

· Do you oppose abortion? (Pro life)

· Do you oppose same-sex marriage? (Pro traditional family)

Having cast your primary ballot, please make it a regular daily habit to pray for God to be honored by the November election. Not for our sakes, but for what it could mean for His name’s sake in the nations of the world – and ours.
