Some of the protesters were interviewed, or there was an attempt to do so, and when asked "why they were protesting", they answered, "I do not want to answer that question". Way creepy.
The data for the last 50 years shows that that is the case - regardless of party affiliation.
There is something to be said about having Hillary as President while she is at the same time in prison. It will certainly cut the cost of official state functions. And, imagine the response of her favorite guests to an invitation to the "great hall" at Leavenworth.
I looked at the nomination/confirmation data for the past 50 years and no candidate for SCOTUS has been confirmed in any president's last year in office. The "foot dragging" as you call it is not unusual. The electorate is already fed up.
"Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell."
PDB. What recriminations? Here is a challenge for you: other than this passage which is clearly debated as to its intent and meaning, find any scripture that states that having wealth itself is the specific reason for eternal condemnation. And pay attention when Paul said, "the love of money is the root of all evil". Loving money and having money are two separate things. People can also "love money" that they do not have (tenth commandment). That is the essence of the attraction of socialism - to acquire money of others through no effort on their own. And recall that Job was "the greatest man among all the people of the East" (as he was the richest man), yet God said of him to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil."
Rover, your analysis is correct as you conclude with the essence of salvation: grace which is extended to rich and poor. The disabusers of truth love to harp about wealth as if they know what they are talking about. Their's is a social and political agenda that is from the abyss. While they self-righteously harp about other's wealth, they ignore their own 1.5 million abortions/year, abuse of marijuana, sexual abominations, and borrowing money without any intention of paying it back. "Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts [drugs], their sexual immorality, or their thefts." Rev9_21.
