BREAKING: Source tells me the closed-room background why the 14 are now backing McCarthy.

The motion to vacate is key.

It’s a privilege motion (supersedes all other business except adjournment) that takes only one movant. If invoked, McCarthy would need a majority of 218 to STAY as Speaker.
This effectively neuters McCarthy. The original 20 have a pact that if McCarthy does anything outside his promises, they will vote to not retain and he’s gone.
The rest of the rules package would mark the first time HRC would have independent authority from leadership in over 60 years—good for accountability and the public.
Process requires the vote for speaker to happen first, member swearing-in, then rules package; however, if McCarthy tries to back out of any concession, he won’t have the votes for any rules package and we’re back to a stall. Congress can’t move without a rules package affirmed.
Source tells me the 10pm vote is likely going to see a consensus and McCarthy elected.
Bottom line: With this rules package, the 20 have achieved an historic accountability oversight and check on leadership and the Speaker’s power.

I would consider this a TOTAL WIN for Gaetz & Co, the MAGA movement, and therefore America.

Declare victory and let’s get to work! 🙌

“What about divorce?”

Dissolution of marriages must also follow God’s process and qualify, as He created the institution. The Church is the rightful arbiter of marital disagreements and potential dissolutions.

State-determined no-fault divorce has been devastating for marriage.
Just because some do not follow God’s process in divorce doesn’t mean others are free to not follow His process in same-sex “marriage.”

Any reinvention or redefinition apart from God’s design, process, and authority is morally wrong.

The Church needs to stand firm on this.
“God hates divorce.” Yes, He hates any sin and lack of repentance that would lead to dissolution of a marriage. That doesn’t mean every divorce is wrong. (Matt 18 + 1 Cor 7:15 — treat those who are unrepentant as an unbeliever. If the unbeliever wants to leave, let him go.)

This is exactly the right kind of assertion of state sovereignty.

Good for @GovRonDeSantis…
“Absent some evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion, or some federal statute that preempts Florida law, the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election.” — FL DOS

SCOTUS Justice William Douglas said, “The Fifth Amendment is an old friend, a good friend. It is one of the great landmarks in men’s struggle to be free of tyranny, to be decent and civilized.”

It is a great safe haven of the INNOCENT to be free from corrupt coercion of tyrants.
The Supreme Court has held more than once that “the innocent and guilty alike have a right of recourse to the Fifth Amendment.” Ullmann v. United States, 350 U.S. 422, 427 n.2 (1956)
Supreme Court has also “emphasized that one of the Fifth Amendment’s basic functions is to protect innocent men who otherwise might be ensnared by ambiguous circumstances.” Ohio v. Reiner, 532 U.S. 17, 21 (2001)

This is a very basic demand of liberty and a free people.

One of the biggest pieces conservative twitter is missing is that KBJ is a former public defender. There is an ideology that goes along with this. Extreme focus on rehabilitation vs punishment. Her answers are completely in line with this crim law view.
The Supreme Court has never had a former public defender. While I do not support the confirmation of KBJ (for reasons forthcoming in my show today), I do think the Court would benefit from a PD perspective. Prosecutors have an ideology as well.
I’ve been both a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney (the latter for much longer). And until you’ve had a client, you can’t truly understand why rehabilitation and discretion in sentencing matters. The point is not to be “tough” on crime, but SMART on crime.

Thoughts on Christmas. Thread🧵

This is me in Jerusalem in 2014 at the Garden Tomb, the most likely spot where the resurrection of Jesus occurred.

It was an amazing place, but as our tour guide observed, "The point is not that it happened here, but that it HAPPENED." Amen. 1/
The same can be said for Christmas. The point is not whether Jesus was born on the day we observe and give thanks for His birth, but that HE CAME! 2/
That He was and is and is to come. Jesus is the Christ, only Son of the Living God, God incarnate (not just a prophet), born of a virgin, died on a cross to cleanse mankind from all wickedness, who triumphed over death that could not contain Him and rose again and lives today 3/
