Biden is lawless and ignores the rule of law

To the Editor:
According to www.worldviewweekend.com “the lawless Biden regime doesn’t follow the rule of law.” When it received an unfavorable court order from a federal judge forbidding them from eliminating Title 42 at the border, they ignored it. Title 42 is the court-reinforced order to keep illegal border crossers out of the U.S. to protect the American public during the pandemic. Biden’s lawless regime is just letting them in, two million of them in just the last several months. A news article from just one border city, McAllen, Texas, that appeared at Fox News: “The Texas border city of McAllen says more than 7000 COVID- positive migrants have been released into the city since February, and more than 1500 in the past week. The latest example of growing concern about the potential impact of the border crisis on efforts to control COVID-19 or (future pandemics) in the U.S.
America’s faith in the “rule of law” has been shaken because Biden’s U.S. Attorney General’s refusal to enforce a federal law (18 U.S. Code 1507) against protesters who are picketing and parading outside the homes of U.S. Supreme Court Justices in an effort to change their votes on an upcoming opinion. These protests started in early May when the leak of a draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was made public. In response to the draft, pro-abortion protesters have made an organized and concerted effort to “influence” the justices in the “discharge” of their “duty” by “parading” and “picketing” outside the justices’ “residences.” All of these actions in quotation marks are in clear violation of the plain wording of 18 U.S. Code 1507, which says: “Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year or both.” Hundreds of protesters were breaking the law and no arrests except one man who was armed and planning to murder Justice Kavanaugh. It is obvious that Biden’s U.S. Attorney General’s decision not to enforce the law in this case is based on political motivation and he should be removed from office. This decision is dangerous, unjust and ungodly!
As America’s greatest emblem of justice it’s critical that the judgment rendered by the U.S. Supreme Court be as pure as is possible in our flawed world. The purity of the Court’s judgment depends on its operation being protected by the powers of the federal government, including the U.S. Attorney General’s office. The Bible in Leviticus 19:15 describes what justice looks like through the eyes of God: “Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.” The rule of law is a principle that is supposed to rule American government. This “rule of law” is described as “the mechanism, process, institution, practice or norm that supports the equality of all citizens before the law, secures a nonarbitrary form of government, and more generally prevents the arbitrary use of power.” Biden’s U.S. Attorney General ignoring the rule of law is dangerous because the rule of law protects us all! This is more dangerous than the alleged January 6 attack on the 535 members of U.S. Congress, because the U.S. Supreme Court only has nine members and this attack is happening now, not 18 months ago. The media distracts people with the January 6 dog and pony show while it ignores the Kavanaugh murder plot, the four fire bombings of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers and vandalizing of two dozen pro-life crisis pregnancy centers. Since the U.S. government is no longer bound by the rule of law we no longer have freedom and justice for all and no longer have a government “of the people, by the people and for the people!”
Although Psalm 98:9 is a comfort to those who are grieving from injustice, it should also serve as a warning for those who find themselves contrary to justice and the rule of law: “God will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.” We must all remember that we will be held to account by God for our decisions, including the decision to disregard justice! Justice is of the highest importance to God. Psalm 89:14 says, “righteousness and justice are the foundations of Your throne.”
Dealing with injustice is one of the hardest things for people to go through. Romans 8 suggests God works all things (including injustice) for good to those who love Him. This is seen in the case of Joseph who was sold into slavery but God worked it for good. No Christian can be a permanent victim because God can work all things for good for those who love Him. The greatest injustice the world has ever seen was the death of Jesus on the cross and it worked for the most good. Christians know the gospel (good news) is Jesus died for sin, was buried and rose again and Jesus is the only one that can forgive sin and make us just. Only just people go to heaven. Many Christians wrongly believe we must choose between fighting for social justice, fighting injustice and spreading the good news of Jesus. Failing to speak the truth of the gospel is ultimately the greatest injustice of all. The human heart is the source of injustice so the gospel is the only real solution that deals with the root of the problem. Making sharing the gospels transforming truth and power the highest priority. Our highest calling is to spread the gospel — the only truth with the proven power to positively change our world, by changing us from the inside out. The human right to know Jesus and make Him known is the greatest human right. Knowing the gospel is in fact every human’s greatest need and right and therefore the greatest justice issue of our time and of all time!
