Have you ever heard the old saying that the truth comes out in the pudding? Well, it would seem that the Biden Administration is now finding out that things aren’t as good as they had hoped for in terms of COVID. According to The Daily Beast, President Biden will have his hands full with COVID and cleaning up the stank that former President Trump left.

I informed you guys that this could very well be the case weeks ago because of how hard Trump was trying to fight to stay inside the White House. Many of us had hoped that we could forget about Trump after he left the White House, but it looks like that might not be so easy. One would also have to wonder about the outcome of finding altered data before the Senate starts looking at the impeachment. Could we see a different punishment if the findings are too altered? Can Trump be legally held accountable for not being forthcoming about the virus and the real effects?

Trump had stopped letting the numerical data go to the CDC from the hospitals months ago. Not only did he alter the way data was being delivered, but he also started listening to someone who was pushing herd immunity. If you followed herd immunity in Sweden, you will recall that it cost a lot of people their lives. On top of costing a lot of people their lives, it still wasn’t reached.

Only time will expose the enormity of the level of chaos handed down during Trump’s presidency. I fear we will find scarier monsters in the coming weeks marching down the White House steps. I wouldn’t want to be in President Biden’s shoes. However, I think it is safe to say that we can trust him in this fight against COVID. Get ready for some hard truths in the months to come.

Why This Election Feels so urgent

I don’t think I have ever counted down an election or followed one as I follow the 2020 election. It is so stressful in many ways. I remember growing up listening to my father and mother talk about stressful times. Today, we are living in stressful times. Right now feels like an unforeseen pressure closing in on you, yet there is nothing you can do. There are many Americans hurting right now. It isn’t due to lockdowns, it is due to the lack of urgency in our government to tackle the problems from state to state. I live in Texas and we are not locked down, yet it doesn’t stop cars from lining up at food centers, in any given city. Our county will ramp up a new program to help homeless Texans in our area. Any idea how the new cases are forcing such a program to appear? COVID-19!

I check the polls three and four times a day. Perhaps, it is out of fear, or it is because we have a lot to lose with this election. During the 2016 election, a lot of us did not know Trump; we only knew we were tired of politicians. Now that we have gotten a face full of who he is, it is clear, America does not need him as a leader.

I think Biden has a chance to do something unique. He has a chance to unite the country by uniting political parties. He is also a living lesson. Biden reminds me of Saul on the road to Damascus. He was persecuting Christians when he was stopped by God and asked why was he persecuting him. Saul’s heart was good. He thought he was doing the right thing for God until he learned how God felt. Then he would go on to be called Paul and would preach the word of the Lord across the world.

This was no easy task for Paul, who once was called Saul. The people knew him as this problematic person that dealt harshly with Christians. He would spend the rest of his life trying to undo the wrongs he committed and carry out God’s will. If Paul could be forged out of something the Lord made and turned into a compass for Christians, God can change the heart of anyone. Perhaps, we are changed by the sorrows we face.

I guess I see Biden’s problematic policies against black people, like myself, in that light. Somehow he learned to be better and to care about all people. Perhaps, that is the reason I support him. He was humbled, and now God can use him. I fear the secrets I cannot see, more than the secrets that aren’t so secret anymore.

Not to mention, the more Trump calls for his arrest, and his son’s arrest shows how un-American Trump is at this moment. Why is he calling for the forced removal of his political rivals? That is a very Russian thing to do, and it screams of scandal. A person with nothing to hide or nothing to fear doesn’t act this way. So, I am fearful. At this moment, I am heading into November with fear because I do not trust our leader. His heart remains hidden from the people.
