Battle Hymn of King Alfred

When the enemy comes in a'roarin' like a flood,
Coveting the kingdom and hungering for blood,
The Lord will raise a standard up and lead His people ,
The Lord of Hosts will go before defeating every foe;
defeating every foe.
For the Lord is our defense, Jesus defend us,
For the Lord is our defense, Jesu defend.

Some men trust in chariots, some trust in the horse,
But we will depend upon the Name of Christ our Lord,
The Lord has made my hands to war and my fingers to fight.
The Lord lays low our enemies, but He raises us upright;
He raises us upright.

For the Lord is our defense, Jesus defend us,
For the lord is our defense, Jesu defend.

A thousand fall on my left hand, ten thousand to the right,
But He will defend us from the arrow in the night.
Protect us from the terrors of the teeth of the devourer,
Embue us with your Spirit, Lord, encompass us with power;
encompass us with power.

For the Lord is our defense, Jesus defend us,
For the Lord is our defense, Jesu defend.

Tiananmen square...

Would the cops use tanks if they had them?

It looks like I may have my answer.

Some are reporting that either Secret Service or Capitol Police executed a young girl.

Some are reporting she was 16.

The PLA were just following orders too.

If you are not aware, @ChandlerPappas was a close friend of the victim of Antifa murderer Michael Reinoehl.

He was feet from being a second fatal victim of the Antifa militant in Portland.

.@ChandlerPappas was in San Francisco with Andrew Duncomb when Philip Anderson lost his teeth to BLM as Philip tried to save a stranger from the mob.


@ChandlerPappas got as many safe that day in San Francisco as possible.

Yet BLM would find their targets.

Now Chandler has become a target for standing up for your rights.

Now you have a choice:

He has stood for your rights.

Will you stand for his?
