Developers of the Miami tower that collapsed were previously accused by building rivals of paying off officials to get permits, according to a the Washington Post. The tower was about to undergo a $15million renovation project to pass a required 40-year certification before it collapsed. A consultant engineer warned back in October 2018 that the Champlain Towers South building in Surfside, Miami Beach, was in need of numerous repairs around the base of the structure 'in a timely fashion.' Miami city officials have now urged owners of condo buildings that are taller than six stories and more than 40 years old to carry out structural inspections within the next 45 days.

"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." [2 Thessalonians 2:11]
Paul the Apostle taught, preached and wrote of things in the future. He explained how the Holy Spirit has been a restraining force in the world, restraining and holding back both the ultimate evils of human beings and that of the demonic forces of fallen angels.
Paul taught that the human being has a capacity for evil that dwarfs even the appalling acts of Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Chairman Mao. For even as just these three combined destroyed hundreds of millions of precious souls, our hearts are even darker, and whose actions, if unrestrained, could have obliterated every human on the face of the earth.
Psychology, secularism and New Age thought (as well as today's majority of mainline Protestant churches) are convinced that people are basically good, and resort to deviant acts and criminal behavior because of negative experiences in their lives. Recent proposals to reduce police forces and intervention with psychologists and social workers is a natural progression of "all people are basically good" ideas.
The Bible clearly and emphatically states the opposite. The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah clearly wrote, in Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
Jesus, while speaking of the end times (Matthew 24:22), said, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
Today we have COVID-19, lockdowns, censorship and "the vaccines." Has "the Delusion" Paul wrote of finally arrived?
In one corner we have many fine and sincere people speaking up about fulfilling our biblical "Love thy neighbor" command who implore us to dutifully wear our face masks, receive our vaccine doses and remain sequestered, alienated and isolated from everyone. They insist this is our Christian obligation.
In an opposite corner are those who proclaim the end is near, the Gates-Fauci genocide is upon us and that vaccinations are a prelude to the Mark of the Beast. All hope is lost. And it is our Christian responsibility to resist at all costs.
Many are deluded to believe there was no fraud in the 2020 election and genuinely believe election audits are an attempt to destroy democracy.
Many are deluded to believe nature has confused their biology and that they can change from one gender to another by simply saying so.
Many are deluded to believe that the United States will, by any means necessary, be dragged from a constitutional republic and turned into a social-democratic nation where all men, women and nonbinaries (whatever that is) have equal pay, equal wages, equal housing and equal bank balances.
And many, apparently, have been deluded into believing that the Zuckerberg-Gates-Bezos-et al. Cabal Network, in tandem with the U.S. media giants, are more capable of establishing, monitoring and supervising the new American government (and its citizens) than those legitimately elected by the American people.
Has the biblical "Great Delusion" finally arrived?
Have you bought into this Delusion?
Stephen P. Downey is a retired Baptist pastor-teacher, American by birth, veteran, conservative and a supporter of Donald Trump.
The very first thing I said to my wife and friends when I learned that the building that collapsed in Miami was 40 years old was that it was too new to collapse, UNLESS THERE WAS GRAFT and CORRUPTION, which by the way is rampant in cities and towns across America, especially those run by Democrats. I was most likely right.
REVEALED: Developers of doomed Miami condo tower were accused of PAYING OFF officials to get permits as Miami calls for inspections of all buildings taller than six stories and over 40 years old within 45 days
Whenever someone thought themselves clever by exhibiting boorish shameful behavior in public or around a group of people, my late grandmother would say: "Give a monkey a show." The translation: Put a monkey in a crowd of people, and you can count on its behaving like a monkey.
Which brings me to Gwen Berry's podium behavior as she competed at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in the hammer throw Saturday. Berry disrespected the United States flag and our country when she refused to face the flag during the medal ceremonies, choosing instead to turn her back on Old Glory – the flag, I might add, of the country that, whether she likes it or not, she's representing at the Olympics this year.
Berry claimed as justification for her detestable behavior that she was "p***ed" because she felt "like it was a setup, and they did it on purpose." Imagine that. Her excuse for boorish anti-American behavior was that the national anthem was played on purpose. But her simian behavior didn't stop there. She pulled out a T-shirt with the words "Activist Athlete" printed on it and draped it over her head. One could be excused for thinking she was sparing the viewing public from having cameras broadcast her face smeared with circus-like makeup. But I digress.
As indefensible as Berry's behavior was to those of sound mind, for me her pathetic attempt at self-promotion raised a more pressing question.
Blacks disrespecting America, our flag and our national anthem certainly predates the Obama woman and the "Benghazi traitor" she calls a husband refusing to salute the flag as the world watched. The primary supposed reasoning behind the complaint and said behavior is always based upon the alleged injustice endured by black people.
But, what goes unaddressed is: What if these people who base their entire value system upon being a crayon color really had it bad? To wit: White people are considered racist because they walk past blacks without saying hello and/or not stepping off the sidewalk to allow blacks to walk past. But what if blacks were not permitted to walk on the sidewalks with whites at all?
What if blacks were not allowed to attend any public schools that were attended by even one white student? What if criminal blacks were actually held accountable for their violent, sociopathic behavior? What if blacks were not allowed treatment by white doctors and denied all access to white-operated medical facilities?
What if blacks were not permitted to live within a 50-mile radius of any neighborhood with even one white family living in said area? What if blacks weren't permitted to make purchases of any kind, from buying a house to shopping at a five and dime discount store to shopping online, due to white ownership?
What if blacks weren't permitted to be given bank loans or to have access to financial services in any white-owned institutions? What if blacks weren't allowed to appear on television or radio for any purpose, apart from doing perp-walks?
What if blacks weren't permitted to work in any white-owned company in any capacity whatsoever? What if blacks weren't permitted to play on any team or compete in any sport that had white players? What if blacks were strictly forbidden from even attending the Olympics, much less being permitted to make spectacles of themselves and their sport on the world stage?
What if blacks were denied all forms of welfare? What if black women were forbidden to have white doctors murder their children by abortion? What if blacks were denied access to all law enforcement services and protection? What if blacks weren't permitted to obtain services from any white-owned business including gas, electric, cable, etc.?
What if blacks were immediately taken into custody and confined in special container structures specifically created to confine a black person who was observed in a "white area"?
In the absence of even one of these instances being the case and the reality being the exact opposite in every example herein sited, explain to me what this contumacious harridan has to complain about. Just how disenfranchised is this ungrateful and malevolent certified skin-color baiter who some sources set her net worth at as much as $8 million?
I'm beyond sick of hearing how bad blacks have it in America. I'm sick of hearing how unfair America is to blacks. I'm sick of ungrateful hatemongers who prostitute being a crayon color the way the Obama woman engaged in usufruct while the objectionable creature she calls mate was defiling the office he held.
If life for so-called crayon-color people like the Gwen Berrys, Oprah Winfreys, the Obama woman, "Low-brain" James, and the huge numbers of self-identified crayon colors worth tens and hundreds of millions of dollars from being athletes, entertainers, politicians, inciters of unrest, ad nauseam is so bad, if their lifestyles and bank accounts define America as bad, I demand they show me a place that's better.

Despite Joe Biden's repeated promises to never raise taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000 per year, he is now working with Democrats in Congress to hammer the middle class with devastating tax increases.. At issue is the so-called American Jobs Plan (AJP), a $2 trillion boondoggle of progressive wish-list spending, combined with a $2.5 trillion taxincrease.
How WILL Biden cover the cost of his $6 trillion spending spree? Tax rises announced by the President last night will only raise $2.3 trillion - and the national debt is already at its highest EVER
The American Rescue Plan, worth $1.9 trillion, has already passed the senate in a 50-49 party-lines vote held in March. The American Jobs Plan worth around $2.3 trillion and the The American Families Plan worth $1.8 trillion take the combined total of Biden's three plans to $6 trillion, that will be spent over roughly 10 years. In order to pay for this, the president announced a series of tax initiatives that would raise cooperation tax, increase funding to the IRS to chase town tax evaders, raise marginal income tax for the top 1 percent of earners, and raise capital gains and dividend tax rates for those earning over $1 million per year. Biden also intends to crack down on multinationals, forcing US firms that make money overseas and companies who use offshore businesses to pay significantly more in taxes under his 'Made in America' tax plan. However, according to estimates, Biden's tax increases would not be enough to cover the full $6 trillion in spending across the three plans, only raising $2.37 trillion, or enough to cover just one of the three spending plans.
PIERS MORGAN: Somebody's got to pay for Santa Joe's insane $6TRILLION spending spree - and I fear it's going to be the American people
President Biden seems to have appointed himself as the nation's chief croupier - dishing out free chips to everyone, on the (White) House, writes PIERS MORGAN. He's only been in power for 100 days but has so far pledged to give away $20,000 for every single American citizen - a commitment of $60 billion for each day in office. Last night, he gave his first address to a joint session of Congress and enthusiastically pitched his $2.3 trillion 'blue-collar blueprint' American Jobs Plan and $1.8 trillion investment into 'human infrastructure'. Biden insisted he wasn't going to 'punish' anyone to pay for all this - well, apart from the rich - and definitely wasn't going to add to the tax burden for the middle class. But as he spoke, he looked and sounded more and more like Santa Claus - a benign, smiling old man announcing he was giving away free gifts to everyone.
Chinese whistleblower Yang Jisheng's book, 'Tombstone: The Great Chinese Famine 1958-1962,' is a powerful reminder that collectivism is evil:
The village felt like a ghost town. There were no animals running around, not even rats, and no living trees either. “All had been stripped of their leaves and bark by starving peasants,” he records. People ate whatever they could get their hands on, and when they were not searching for food, they barely had any energy to move or make a sound.
At the little hut his father lived in, Yang saw his father’s “eyes sunken and lifeless, his face gaunt, the skin creased and flaccid,” which reminded Yang of the human skeleton he saw in an anatomy class. Yang suddenly realized that “the term skin and bones referred to something so horrible and cruel.” Yang tried to feed his father some peanut sprouts—the only thing he could find—but his father was too weak to even swallow. He died three days later.
Despite losing his father to starvation, Yang “felt no suspicion and completely accepted what had been instilled in me by the Communist Party and the Communist Youth League.” Since the founding of Communist China in 1949, the CCP had sealed China off from the outside world. The government had a domestic monopoly on information and facts.
“From nursery school to university, the chief mission was to inculcate a Communist worldview in the minds of all students. The social science research institutes, cultural groups, news organs, and schools all became tools for the party’s monopoly on thought, spirit, and opinion, and were continuously engaged in molding China’s youth.” Furthermore, “all views diverging from those of the party were nipped in the bud.”

April 29, marked the 76th. anniversary of the liberation of Dachau. If it’s acknowledged at all, expect the usual cliché-ridden coverage that trivializes one of the greatest horrors of history, while the next Reich waits in the wings.
Here are a few Holocaust lessons you won’t find in the lame-stream media:
The National Socialists really were socialists – If Hitler was a conservative, as progressives claim, why wasn’t his party called the National Capitalist German Workers Party? Hitler initiated a host of welfare state measures, including infrastructure projects like the Autobahn. He distinguished his socialism from that of the USSR in this way: Russian socialism was international. The socialism of the Third Reich was national. The Nazis wanted to conquer Europe, not create clones of German socialism. Like the cabal that runs Democrat Party, the Nazis preferred to keep the façade of private ownership while creating a command economy.
John Adams cautioned: "Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." (John Adams to the Massachusetts Militia, October 1798.)
There's an often omitted part of that speech, which is critical because it's endogenic, i.e., foundational to the whole. It reads: "While our country remains untainted with the principles and manners, which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world; while she continues sincere and incapable of insidious and impious policy, we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America, once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another and towards foreign nations, which assumes the Language of Justice and moderation while it is practicing Iniquity and Extravagance; and displays in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candour frankness and sincerity while it is rioting in rapine and Insolence: this Country will be the most miserable habitation in the World; because We have no Government armed with Power capable of contending with human Passions unbridled by morality and Religion. Avarice, ambition, and revenge or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net." ("The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States." Boston: Little, Brown and Company. 1854. Pp. 228, 229.)

Now that the election is over, Trump is out of office and Biden is in, thoughts have turned to governing. Well, maybe not governing. More like executive order fiat. It seems the only measure Congress has voted on thus far is the impeachment.
Still, if you believe the Dems, they were the ones we had to elect to restore our "democracy." And every time they mention that word, "democracy," many of us right-wing radicals feel compelled to remind America that we are not in fact a democracy, but are a constitutional, representative republic. Maybe we just say, "We are a republic."
And we are a republic for a reason. The founders knew the difference, which is why they painstakingly developed the form of government we still have and has, at least for now, stood the test of time. MORE
The enemy of our souls is a crafty liar whose singular purpose in existence is to lead people astray, specifically the "children of God," i.e., born-again Christians. The axiom that "a fish rots from the head down" is a truism that explains why Satan works to mislead Christian leaders and specifically those in the clergy.
I know the difference between truth and lies. I also know that compliance to the lexicon and mandates of Satan's progeny will cause me to lead people astray in support of lies. True Christians, specifically those in leadership, do well to remember God judges us harshly for doing same.
For those who would point to Hebrews 13:7 (KJV), note that it refers to leadership authority in the church not government. Romans 13:1ff (KJV) refers to officials but it doesn't tell us to disobey God to obey wickedness.
“The welfare state has done to black Americans what slavery couldn’t do, and that is to destroy the black family.”
Walter E. Williams was born in West Philadelphia, but any parallel to a certain ‘90s sitcom ends there. He was raised by his mother in North Philadelphia. That’s where the future academic and preeminent economist shared a neighborhood with Bill Cosby. He even knew the real “Fat Albert” in person. (It is highly unlikely that Walter E. Williams quotes Fat Albert very often. Not one of the Cosby Kids had very much to say about economics.)
Williams was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1959. There he was court-martialed for daring to challenge racial order and the conventions of Jim Crow. In spite of Mark Twain’s best advice Williams argued his own case at his hearing – and won.
Williams resumed his college education at UCLA after flying 51 combat missions in the Korean War. He became fast friends with Thomas Sowell despite having never attended one of his lectures. Williams earned his master’s degree and Ph.D. in economics before going on to teach at Temple University, Stanford University, and finally George Mason University.
Williams is a libertarian, antisocialist, and passionate advocate for laissez-faire capitalism. In his view a free market unfettered by government intervention is the most productive economic system ever devised. The professor has named Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman and F. A. Hayek as crucial influences on his philosophical development. He has also expressed a great fondness for Ayn Rand’s writing and her tireless defense of capitalism.
Yet Williams has certainly contributed a great deal to modern libertarian discourse on his own. After analyzing the Davis-Bacon Act and its impact on the economy, he concluded that minimum wage laws actually harm minorities. In his book The State Against Blacks Williams makes an iron clad case that the government’s involvement in America’s economy has done more to hamper the development of African American communities than actual racism – the impact of which he would also argue has been vastly overstated.
Williams has addressed several other libertarian issues in his essays and frequent appearances on radio and television. He denounces anti-discrimination laws for their gross violation of freedom of association. He is just as supportive of gun control, a government measure which serves only to jeopardize the innocent while failing to reduce crime. He believes states ought to have every right to secede if they wish to. And in true libertarian fashion Williams believes in the right to sell one’s own organs. (If your kidney is not your own to sell, then whose else could it be?)
In 2009 the Ludwig von Mises Institute ranked Williams the third most influential Hayekian intellectual in America. The subject of this brief biography was no doubt pleased to see his old friend Thomas Sowell ranked first.
Walter E. Williams has never let the mainstream narrative dictate his deeply cherished political and economic beliefs. His many academic distinctions aside, that alone makes him a paragon for other libertarians to look up to.

12 graphs show mask mandates don't stop COVID- Recent From The Plain Truth
PALM BEACH, Florida – U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, a medical doctor by profession, made an unnerving prediction about masks on Wednesday, saying mandates to wear facial coverings are never going away as long as the political left is in charge.
"They will never relent. These people are never gonna let you not wear a mask," the Kentucky Republican told Todd Herman, the fill-in host on Rush Limbaugh's national broadcast.
"I promise you, you will never get out from the mask because they're saying that even after all are vaccinated, we don't know, you still might catch it a little bit, you still might transmit it, even after everybody's vaccinated. So don't listen to these people.
My entire career to date, I've spoken the unvarnished truth. Truth will always be the skunk at a picnic attended by liars, fools and the uninitiated, i.e., those who think, believe and regurgitate whatever they are told as long as the pundit or mouthpiece is advertised as a conservative.
I'm not interested in being liked or being popular. If I were, I'd be a black Republican ideologue where they would hang on my every word as long as I towed the party line. If I were interested in being filthy rich, I would have converted to being an African-American Democrat who blamed white people for everything from slavery to unconscious racism to the notion growing a garden is racist. If I were an African-American Democrat, I'd be a god, and a very rich one. I wouldn't have to speak broken English and dribble a basketball (and from my mouth) like "Low-Brain" James. I wouldn't have to be what the old-timer blacks called "high-yellow," nor a homosexual like a certain sour lemon program host on CNN.
I speak the truth and often in incendiary forthrightness, and that makes people uncomfortable. I don't apologize for speaking the truth nor for the way I speak it.
Democrats are as unholy as the Children of the Corn. There's no biblical support that allows for them to be recognized as anything other than the progeny of Satan. They promote every single thing God's Word condemns. The problem is that most people who reference themselves as conservative, especially those who reference themselves as Christian and conservative, have bought the damnable lie that the Republican Party is more trustworthy than Democrats despite all evidence to the contrary.
The Republicans' participation in the betrayal of President Trump was Machiavellian to the point of making Macbeth look like a rank amateur in the court of political treachery.Top Articles Trump maintains strong support from Republicans Read More Read More Read More

THE COMING "WOKE" AMERICAN THEOCRACY
Editor's Note: The Plain Truth has been informing our readers just who The United States, Great Britain, Western Europe and Australia is in the Bible. It's been lost to most, and without this understanding one can not comprehend the fate of these nations ESPECIALLY England and America! Read these very informative articles:

- Are We Living in the Last Days?
- How I came to Believe What I do
- Leviticus 26-Warning to America
"The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" by Edward Gibbon is an epic masterpiece that tells the story of how empires end. It is a six-volume comprehensive outlook on the last days of the Roman Empire, published between 1776 and 1789, right at the time of the founding days of the United States. Gibbon studied how a decline in civic virtues, stern morality and discipline ended up causing disorder, injustice and the end of the empire.
Corruption became the norm, the incorruptible destroyed, the liar prevailed, those who pushed for traditional virtues became the enemy of state. When cheating and cunning power plays that destroy justice becomes socially acceptable among the elites, their example carry precedence further down the ranks. As the population watches how the liar is honored as a hero, they all begin to follow the same path.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," said the martyred Christian preacher and not so popular anymore Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He is no longer an icon in today's Marxist movements such as Black Lives Matter. "As long as mankind shall continue to bestow more liberal applause on their destroyers than on their benefactors, the thirst of military glory will ever be the vice of the most exalted characters," writes Gibbon, and today we see the very same problem.
As the American election is melting down in allegations of voter fraud, lies and cheating, upcoming lawsuits, a public out of touch with its media, the last days of Rome comes to mind. As lack of justice and order, violence, street wars and drugs prevail, the United States looks more like a mafia system that makes the 1930s Chicago mobsters seem like children at play. We are watching yet another republic fall apart from lack of upholding its historic and traditional virtues.
Or will the current political upheaval finally produce the draining of the Washington swamp of corruption, collusion and unfair power play? Are too many aware of the corruption now for this to quiet down? Will the end result be a more honest America that returns to its former greatness?
President Trump is now advised to order lawsuits in every state, turning the election 2020 into a war, not trusting any polling or results being reported. WND reports:"The Trump campaign claims that with the president on a path to victory Tuesday night, vote counting stopped and overnight huge 'surges' of ballots were counted for Joe Biden, sometimes coming without even a single accompanying vote for the president."
When law and order breaks down, no republic cannot be saved from the oncoming hordes of "barbarians." Gibbons spoke of this, how the very lack of civic virtues produced the disorder that allowed the takeover by Germanic tribes and other groups outside the Roman Republic – called barbarians – to finally sack Rome.
The Christian writer and icon who had fled Rome due to its hedonism and lack of justice, St. Gerome, tells how the very same elite ladies who loved the vanity, orgies and decadence of Rome later begged in the streets of Palestine. The end of Rome was brutal; they all fled for their lives, scattered to far away places such as the Judea province in today's Israel. St. Gerome's statue in the monastery next to the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem stands as a reminder of the end of Roman glory.
Today, the irony is that a billionaire's wealth may buy air time for propaganda at the news channels and pay the politicians running for office, yet fail to provide good leadership: that of a man who seeks to do justice to the nation's population. Who thinks of the people, the working class today? Which politicians or billionaires paying them do anything about the inner city schools or the horrifyingly low standard millions in the United States grow up in?
Gibbons is known for his view that the "kind Christian values" negatively impacted Rome and criticized its corrupt clergy, the close links between the political elite and the religious establishment. He asserts that Rome fell due to weakened Roman values, yet forgot that the Eastern Roman Byzantine Empire – where Christianity was implemented as a core value system by Emperor Constantine – lasted 1,000 years longer than Rome. Martin Luther King Jr. famously states: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." It remains to be seen whether the American Republic will descend into further chaos or whether the darkness will be overcome.

Who isn't concerned about health care, especially during the COVID pandemic? However, the arguments that millions will lose their health care if Obamacare is repealed is disingenuous.
Prior to the passage of Obamacare, the Obama/Biden administration promised, "If you like your doctor you can keep you doctor: If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan." The truth is millions lost their doctors and their perfectly good health care plans when Obamacare was rammed through without a single Republican vote. In return, most people were forced to buy a plan with things they didn't need (like sex-reassignment surgery, psychiatric care and substance abuse) or pay a fine.
We also were promised that the price of health insurance would go down. The reverse happened. Premiums skyrocketed, the number of insurers went down, and the number of people on government programs increased, which was one of the objectives of the single-payer crowd.
How did that work out for most hard-working taxpayers? I'll tell you how it has worked out for one South Carolina man of modest means. He was making $10 an hour, so his company signed him up for Obamacare. The subsidy covered his entire premium. Such a deal, right? But no! In October, he had a massive heart attack and went to the ER. Under Obamacare, he had to come up with an $8,000 copay, which was impossible. The doctor told him he needed three stints, but since he could not pay the $8,000, they only would do the one that caused the heart attack.

Here is the key point: "There is not a clear line between the PRC's civilian and military economies, raising due diligence costs for U.S. and global entities that do not desire to contribute to the PRC's military modernization."
That means every American dollar invested in the PRC helps the CCP build its military and techno-totalitarian machinery.
Right now, major Wall Street index providers such as MSCI and FTSE Russell, pension funds, university endowments and other large institutional investors are pouring billions from American investors into companies like the China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), a state-owned enterprise sanctioned by the State and Commerce departments for its role in grabbing territory in the South China Sea in violation of international law.
Journalists who condemn you as “racist” for referring to the Chinese or Wuhancoronavirus. Men who swear they are women. A presidential primary contest between a perpetually enraged old communist and a corrupt, excruciatingly senile politician who lies constantly. Giddy legislators high-fiving each other after legalizing abortion at 40 weeks – which is to say, legalizing infanticide. A political party obsessed with eliminating America’s borders, protecting criminals and dismantling law enforcement.
Normal decent Americans increasingly describe today’s Democratic Party – and the far-left worldview that has possessed it – using terms like “madness,” “delusion” and “derangement.”
But there’s a much deeper, more illuminating and ultimately more useful way to look at what is cryptically known as “the left.”
Leftism is a religion.
