I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that free speech would be protected in America and that freedom would reign in our nation.

After censoring conservative speech throughout the U.S. election cycle, we were surprised to find out about Twitter’s official policy on censorship in the Uganda elections.

Here is Eric Metaxas had to say about Twitter censorship and we found it compelling:

We are living through strange days! One thing I have been talking about for years now is the idea of LIBERTY and how if we do not VIGILANTLY strive to stay free — to “keep the Republic” as Benjamin Franklin said — we will lose it. We are on the verge of losing it right now, so I encourage you to pray for our nation. Whether on your own, or in the prayer call tonight (here is a link), please pray earnestly for this country.

The evidence for what I say is everywhere — but it is now also right under my own nose.

Just yesterday, for “breaking the Twitter rules” I was “locked out” of Twitter for seven days. The folks who make these decisions may genuinely believe anyone saying this election was fraudulent might lead to “violence.” That’s what the official Twitter notice says on the “offensive” tweet I posted, which was a joke they deemed “inappropriate.” But I believe the claim they make is infinitely more offensive and dangerous to America — and freedom and our citizens — than my own claim that the election was fatally tainted and needs open investigation.

When we are being told we CANNOT SPEAK and we go along with it, we become part of the problem. It happened in Germany, and it can happen here. Indeed it IS happening here. So it is up to all of us to do whatever we can.

So FIRST we must pray, and must trust that God has a bigger picture and can do ANYTHING he chooses to do. Pray and believe that and see what He does.

SECOND, we must speak the truth. We must never allow anyone to silence us.  Bonhoeffer is supposed to have said: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. God will not hold us guiltless.” Those words do not appear in my book, because I could not find where he actually said them, and I now believe it’s impossible to trace them to him. But that does NOT change their power and truth. So I am happy to take credit for saying them myself, if anyone needs an “attribution” for them. Who said them is not the point. Truth is truth. And no truer words have been spoken. Silence in the face of evil IS evil. Not speaking or acting is speaking and acting in ANOTHER way, one that makes us a party to the evil being perpetrated.

So to stay silent now would be wrong.

I have INDEED seen tremendous evidence of voter fraud and election malfeasance and I have spoken to many people who have as well. Why should I pretend that’s not true when it is true? The forces trying to silence the Americans speaking up tell me everything I need to know about who is guilty. If you are being honest and transparent you are not afraid of looking into things rigorously, to protect the sanctity of our voting system. As you know, many judges and courts refused to look at the evidence. They did NOT look at the evidence and dismiss it. They refused to LOOK at the evidence. That includes the Supreme Court, as you know. They were afraid to wade into these turbulent waters and thought it safer just to turn a blind eye and let things proceed. This was nothing less than a dereliction of duty.

What do you think about Twitter’s hypocrisy? What do you think is the answer to big tech censorship in the U.S.?

From what I have seen, the shadow hand:


To defeat this, we probably need to ask God to lift away their control of these …

Can we say amen & may this trend continue.

We will not be
quiet, because our God speaks volumes.

Thank you Lord for giving Eric a backbone of steel and courage to speak Truth. IFA will peek Truth. Lord we stand for Life, Truth and Light.
If all media shuts down it is control of the population but we have Your Holy Spirit Who is able to bypass social media. We need to be more in Your presence and receive strategies from You.

I think it’s time for all of us to strike a fatal blow to the Tech Serpent. Find an alternative to Google, Twitter, Facebook, and the like, close these accounts, and starve these beasts to death. Deny them the food (money) that keeps them alive. They do not deserve to live.

Thanks for this. I have been saying “I don’t seek violence, vengeance, rebellion, or insurrection, I seek truth!” We must fight smart(Patiently and in the Spiritual and Legal realms) continue to gather evidence, pray for God ordained attorneys and prosecutors to hear the call of God to present that evidence to courageous and fair Judges,(I pray for good Judges Father God) or Military Tribunals (If it involves Foreign powers). Germany just filed the largest lawsuit in History against China, for economic damages from COvid-19. Entire Nations are girding for the Courtroom. This evidence will come out, and I pray that Justice will be served, integrity will be restored to the voting process of the USA.

Certainly silence is consent. A pack of wolves is eating a nation of sheep. Do nothing, say nothing and all of our freedoms will die!

The hypocrisy is outrageous, it is intended to deceive, misinform, and conceal the truth. Also intended to silence conservatives. That is why it’s so important to NOT be silent. To remain silent, we become part of the problem. Church it’s time to wake up and make your voices heard!

All conservatives should not purchase any products that support companies that are on board with Big Tech companies

The Greek word “Techne” means witchcraft. You can see this in Rev. 18:22
Our government is now a “technocracy” (not a democracy under man) but one under the judgment of witchcraft. Time to wake up.

Decades of benifiting from hideous crimes, corruptions, crimes against humanity, sexual exploitations, human trafficking and the list goes on ….. the world of those in high places are being exposed, they don’t like the light so they are trying to stay under the cover of darkness … nevertheless, Father God is shining the light on them. He will not stop exposing wickedness.

“For all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all.”
Luke 8:17 NLT

For this reason they are working together to censor truth.

Father God, we come against the satanic alliances formed in communications and networking: main stream media, all social media, all disinformation being disseminated among believers and non-believers.
Father God,, we rebuke and dismantle satanic alliances, and arrest them by Your Spirit.
We say let every clandestine effort and endeavors fail in the name of Jesus. May those who seek to destroy our communication system be disgraced and put to shame, may those who plot against us to ruin our freedom be turned back in dismay.
May they be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the Lord driving them away, may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.
Father release divine viruses to invade their satanic databases, and command that they be consumed and destroyed. Let all future diabolical communications and networking fail. Father send a spirit of confusion among them. Let their tongues be divided. Overrule and overthrow sabotage, subversions and every setbacks. Let every attack of retaliation or planned retaliation fail in Jesus’s name.

We declare Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

In Jesus’s name. Amen.

Twitter is the very definition of hypocrisy, and most other big tech companies follow close behind! These companies are in God’s control although they have become so wealthy they think they control their own destiny. But, God is using them to accomplish his will. As you all remember, as an example of their hypocrisy…twitter refused to allow The New York Post to publish their well documented story on Hunter Biden. Now, twitter is condemning Uganda for their move to require ISP’s that serve their country to BLOCK twitter, facebook and others! Talk about irony and time about fair play. Thank you Jesus that your will is being accomplished. Protect those that are on your side fighting the battle for the rights that you gave us and that are codified in our constitution!

This is very dangerous times I am amazed at those who are burying their heads in the sand to keep from facing how many of our freedoms are being taken away.

    we are under technocracy not democracy. The Greek word “techne” means witchcraft which is seen in Rev. 18:22. Christ returns at Rosh Hashanah of 2022. This tribulation period doesn’t have a long time to run out.

The actions of those in government and out of government caused thousands of people to verify under oath that they had seen corruption during the election. Those who are responsible for the corruption of the election really think they have done the right thing. The truth of the matter is that States violated the Constitution of the United States which is so plain that no one has said otherwise, however, the Supreme Court of the United States refuses to hear the facts of the charges to oppose the results of the election. Do you think their decision not to make a decision made this all go away? Does not their decision to not make a decision speak volumes as to where our country has fallen?
Jeremiah 5:30-31
30 “An astonishing and horrible thing
Has been committed in the land:
31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end? NKJV
