The world is moving ominously close to World War III and it is a war that must never be fought. Nuclear war cannot be won.
Albert Einstein reportedly commented that he did not know how World War III would be fought, but he did know how the 4th World War would be fought: with sticks and stones!
We have a lot of politicians anymore. We have no Statesmen.
We need a Ronald Reagan to lead us now more than ever – a statesman of integrity, respected worldwide. A man who believes in the power of prayer as did Ronald Reagan who sought the protective hand of Providence and wisdom from on high. The world stage seems devoid of such a man outside of the U.S.
There may be one such man in our own nation who could possibly fill the bill. He has dropped out of the squalor and mud-slinging of the presidential race for now – his name is Vice President Mike Pence – President Trump’s wise chose for VP – an experienced and successful Governor of Indiana and member of Congress whose reputation for truth and veracity preceded him.
When you read his book “So Help Me God”, you come to understand that he was the one behind the scenes (he never sought to upstage his president) that cut the red tape to come up with a Covid vaccine at warp speed that saved millions of lives; negotiated the “stay in Mexico policy” to keep order at our southern border – legal immigration not invasion – and many other significant accomplishments of the Trump presidency that Vice President Pence worked hard to bring about.
At the time of the 2016 election I attended the yearly national meeting of our Christian Legal Society held at the Crystal City Marriott Convention Center in Washington, DC, that year – lawyers and some judges and law students from all over the nation and the world.
They scheduled a 7:00 am prayer meeting one morning that I attended – a smaller gathering for the early risers. When I came in they were discussing who to back in the upcoming election. They knew they did not want Hillary Clinton (pro-abortion) but they had mixed feelings about Donald Trump.
I proffered to the group that while Mike Pence, a solid Christian, would make an ideal candidate, he would not win at this time on his own. Donald Trump “sells soap”, I told them, “And put the two together and you have a good combination because Mike Pence would pray with the president and influence him.” – and he did.
Look how he brought Trump around on the equal humanity and personhood of the preborn child. Remember in Trump’s last State of the Union speech when he referred to “unborn (preborn) children Created in the Holy Image of God”? Right after these words, he turned and looked back over his shoulder at his vice president seated on the raised dais as though to say “Did I say that right?”
In Mike Pence’s book he tells of the first cabinet meeting when he suggested to the president that they open the meeting with prayer to which Trump responded that was not exactly how they opened real estate meetings in New York, but he agreed. The devilish mischief was to separate these two men at the end of the Trump presidency.
Is there someone out there who can think of a way to bring these two together over dinner to reflect on all the good they did accomplish together? If they could smoke the peace pipe and pick up where they left off – a Trump/Pence presidential ticket again – they and they alone could lead America out of the doldrums and restore order on the world stage. And then Vice President Pence could possibly carry on for 8 years after that.
Let us pray!
Yours very sincerely and respectfully,

P.S. The Supreme Court of Alabama, in a decision handed down February 16th just past, has ruled that frozen human embryos are children. We remember that Judge W. Dale Young of the Blount County, Tennessee, circuit court, based upon Dr. Jerome Lejeune’s testimony before him in the Tennessee Frozen Human Embryo case, ruled in 1989 that Mary’s frozen human embryos were ‘children in vitro”. This was the first such ruling in the history of law. The Supreme Court of Alabama agrees.
You will want to read and yellow highlight this ruling of the Supreme Court of Alabama (first ten pages enclosed) – it will bring joy to your heart. This case is headed to the United States Supreme Court. You can download the entire ruling on our website at naapc.org
Alabama Chief Justice Tom Parker wrote in an opinion attached to the ruling:
“In summary, the theologically based view of the sanctity of life adopted by the People of Alabama encompasses the following:
(1). God made every person in his image.
(2). Each person therefore has a value that far exceeds the ability of human beings to calculate.
(3). Human life cannot be wrongfully destroyed without incurring the wrath of a holy God, who views the destruction of His image as an affront to Himself.”
