Hanukkah 2021 begins at sundown on Sunday, November 28.
Hanukkah, or the Festival of Rededication, celebrates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem. In 167 BCE, the Jews of Judea rose up in revolt against the oppression of King Antiochus IV Epiphanes.
Antiochus went so far as to desecrate the Temple in Jerusalem by installing images of Zeus on its holy platforms and altars. This was meant to be more than a defilement of Israel’s religious ethos, but a pulverizing of its very national identity as well, since the Temple was the religious and civic symbol of Jewish nationhood.
The military leader of the first phase of the revolt was Judah the Maccabee. In the autumn of 164, Judah and his followers were able to capture the Temple in Jerusalem. They cleansed it and rededicated it to Israel’s God.
This event was observed in an eight-day celebration.
Like Passover, Hanukkah is a holiday that celebrates the liberation from oppression. It also provides a strong argument in favor of freedom of worship and religion.
In spite of the human action that is commemorated, never far from the surface is the theology that the liberation was possible only thanks to the miraculous support of the Divine. Read More

LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA. Last February, a group of grassroots nonprofit organizations began an election integrity drive with the aim of using the Virginia gubernatorial election as a beta to “restore trust” in elections. They formed the Virginia Fair Elections Coalition, composed of more than 20 mostly conservative groups.
By April, the coalition was hosting a weekly teleconference for group leaders to discuss and exchange progress reports. This turned into a twice-weekly call in July and later became open to all volunteers when the early voting period began on Sept. 17.
Republican poll watchers were present almost every day at all four polling locations throughout the 45-day early voting period, according to Shelley Oberlander, chairperson of the Election Integrity Workgroup of the Loudoun County Republicans. “I think once they start getting educated and really learning the process and what was involved and that they could make a difference in integrity, they did.”
The election integrity issue is a significant concern for many voters, according to coalition leaders. They’re confident that what has worked in Virginia can be replicated in other states. Such actions are already underway. On Nov. 10, an 18-city tour kicked off in Georgia to start building a similar coalition there, according to Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots GA. Read More
Volusia 'Election Integrity' Coordinators Nancy and Tom Coriale
Under the leadership of Republican Executive Committee Vice Chairman Tom Coriale and his wife Nancy, VOLUSIA COUNTY GOP has been on the leading edge of assuring election integrity for more than 12 years.
In 2020, for the first time, we were able to place our 'Republican Poll Watchers' inside every voting poll in the county. We do this because 12 years ago, there were many reports of shenanigans at several democrat controlled voting locations. Once we placed our poll watching observers inside the voting polls, the reports diminished.
In 2022, we plan on being inside the voting polls once again. You can help with this important effort. Please volunteer now and you'll be contacted to join our election integrity team. We will train and deploy you and you'll be an important part of our "trust but verify" effort. We must have confidence in the election process.

- Their party has declared war on police, war on energy, war on jobs, war on work, war on parents’ rights, war on women’s sports, war on borders, war on the Second Amendment, war on free speech, war on American Culture.
- Never before has a political majority in Congress shown such contempt for the citizens they serve. The Democrat Party is a house of cards ready to come toppling down."
"The old Republican Party is gone Forever. The days of fighting endless wars, supporting nation-building, loose immigration policies, idiotic trade deals, and surrendering our culture to left-wing arsonists are Over—and they are not coming back.
We are now the Working People’s party. We will be tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on trade, proud of our heritage, and proud of our American values. We will defend our citizens’ jobs and wages. We will protect our people’s homes and communities. And we will defeat the Woke Zealots trying to destroy our country.
To save our country, the Republican Party must be the party that fights fiercely for the economic interests of American Workers—the party that speaks boldly for the social interests of American Families—and the party that stands proudly for the cultural values of God-fearing American Patriots."

Dr. Ben Carson Rips Covid Vaccines For Kids
Dr. Ben Carson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Donald Trump, criticized Covid-19 vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 as "a giant experiment" during a Sunday appearance on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
Asked by anchor Maria Bartiromo whether he agreed with the recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) decision to allow children to receive Pfizer's Covid vaccine, Carson definitively replied, "absolutely not."
"The fact of the matter is, the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is very similar to the rate for seasonal flu. And we haven't been for years and years going through all these things for seasonal flu.
Plus, we don't know what the long-term impact of these vaccines is. So this is really sort of a giant experiment. Do we want to put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small, but we don't know what the future risks are? Why would we do a thing like that? It makes no sense whatsoever."
