The Brew: Praise Reports and Political Spoofs

By Al Perrotta Published on April 26, 2023

Welcome to Wednesday!

We’ve got a busy Brew, and it starts with some “breaking” news.

BREAKING NEWS: 50 Former Top Intelligence Officials Publish Letter Claiming Biden Being 80 Years Old is “Russian Misinformation”

“Reports that Joe Biden is 80 years old have all the classic earmarks of a Russian misinformation campaign,” 50 top intelligence officials declared in a letter published shortly after Biden announced his bid for re-election. “We have seen the president’s birth certificate and authenticated with our own eyes that Joe Biden is a fit and rigorous 37-year-old who could be running a marathon today were he not running for re-election.

“Any information suggesting President Biden is an octogenarian with diminishing mental capacity must be seen as coming directly from the desk of Vladimir Putin. Any video of President Biden falling up stairs, falling off bikes, losing his train of thought, inventing words, inventing life stories, forgetting where he is, etc. must be a Deep Fake and should be dismissed. And democracy must be preserved.”

The letter was signed by former CIA director John Brennan, former DNI James Clapper and dozens of other high-ranking intelligence community officials from the Obama and Bush Administrations.

We asked for comment from Joe Biden on the letter, but were told by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre “The President is napping.”

OKAY. I confess. I made this bit of silliness up. But really, is it worse than what these officials did in 2020 with their bogus claim that the Hunter laptop was Russian disinformation? Actually, that was more serious, as the information on the laptop points directly to Joe Biden being the “Big Guy” in a vast scheme to compromise his public office for personal family gain.

The question is what will the Deep State and Washington Establishment that crafted the 2020 black op letter do this election cycle to thwart a free and fair election? It’s scary to contemplate.

On paper the 2024 Election is shaping to be a rematch between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. But in reality it is between this Machine and the American voter. I’m talking to Democrats too. For two straight cycles, the DNC has picked your nominee and fixed the game. They’re gearing up to do the same, starting with not having any debates. Will you stand for it again?

With persistence — and prayer — we can take ‘em.


“Let’s Finish the Job”: Biden Officially Announces He’s Running for Re-Election

Joe Biden officially announced he’s running for re-election in a three minute video released at 6 a.m. on Twitter Tuesday, declaring “Let’s finish the job.”

His video is top heavy on J6 imagery, talk of “MAGA extremists,” threats to “freedom” and the need to “stand up for democracy.” And of course, we’re still in a “battle for the soul of America.” Though when your battle includes promoting the castration and sterilization of children, who are you battling to hand that soul over to?

Good News: Faith in God or a “Higher Power” is on the Rise Among Young Americans Post-COVID

Can I get an “Amen”? Belief in God or a “Higher Power” is on the rise among young Americans 18-25. In fact, the percentage has jumped from one-fourth to approximately one-third since 2021, according to a survey conducted by the Springtide Research Institute.

The Wall Street Journal looked into the reasons for the rise, and after speaking to young adults, church leaders and theologians, they conclude the surprise burst in belief is due to the upheaval from the COVID-19 pandemic. With earthly foundations shaken, they began to look upward.

“We are seeing an openness to transcendence among young people that we haven’t seen for some time,” Abigail Visco Rusert, associate dean at Princeton Theological Seminary, told the WSJ.

The survey was taken in December, which means before the Asbury Revival and related moves of God on campuses across the nation.

Reading the Bible in the Capitol

The 34th annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon concludes this morning in Washington, D.C. For 90 continuous hours, the Bible is being read aloud in multiple languages, from Genesis to Revelation on the Capitol’s West Terrace.

Yesterday, for the first time, a Congressional Bible reading as part of the event occurred inside the Capitol. Surprised some members of Congress didn’t try to offer amendments. Even more surprised some members didn’t burst into flames.

Christian Groups Going to Pray Outside SatanCon in Boston This Weekend

The Satanic Temple is celebrating its tenth year with SatanCon in Boston this weekend, billed as the “largest satanic gathering in history.” But God’s people aren’t conceding the ground. A group of Christian prayer warriors are planning to be there to spiritually intercede.

Sisters Suzie and Lynn MacAskill, regional leaders of the D.C.-based, Intercessors for America tell the Christian Post that hundreds of believers will be on hand to pray and conduct worship services at the event.

Suzie says that while initially wanting to pray for the event to fail, she feels led by God to instead pray for the attendees.

“God is showing me that I need to repent of this and try instead to look at each individual and see them as lost, broken, wounded, seeking and be the person who stands in the gap to cry out for their salvation.”

“We pray for a harvest of lost souls to take place as we have never seen before.”

We stand in agreement.


Short-Sighted Liberals Celebrate Apparent Demise of Tucker Carlson

Oh, boy, was there joy on The View over Tucker Carlson’s sudden departure from Fox News. Ana Navarro was actually singing the 60’s smash “Na Na Hey Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye.”

How tempting to respond with a chorus of “Chain of Fools.”

Consider this. Above we included a link to The Blaze article about The View reaction. The Blaze is part of a multi-media, ground-breaking network built by Glenn Beck. Built by Beck after he left Fox News with the same cheers and jeers from the Left. Oh, we should also mention Beck’s slot was replaced by a new show called The Five … which not only has dominated afternoon ratings ever since, but raised the profile of Greg Gutfeld … who parlayed that into becoming the new King of Late Night.
