Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with ISRAEL; fight against those who fight against ISRAEL!
Take hold of shield and buckler and rise for ISRAEL'S help! Draw the spear and javelin against ISRAEL'S pursuers!

Coronavirus Authoritarianism Is Getting Out of Hand
Plus: When It Comes to Fighting COVID-19, Let's Not Emulate China
Apr 18, 2020
Happy Saturday from Washington, where President Trump and Vice President Pence outline signs of hope in a national emergency sparked by COVID-19 that is historic in scope. Plus: Big Brother thrives on the coronavirus, China as a bad role model, and strong words for the Voice of America. On this date in 1989, thousands of Chinese students assemble in Beijing to protest China's communist government and call for greater democracy, a movement that will be suppressed brutally in the Tiananmen Square massacre less than two months later. Stay safe this weekend.
Politicians act as though a health crisis gives them license to lord over the most private activities of the American people in ways that are wholly inconsistent with the spirit and letter of the Constitution.
President Trump mounts a fierce attack on the Voice of America, the U.S. government's broadcasting entity that reaches out to the world in 47 different languages and is a part of the U.S. Agency for Global Media.
