Prepare for Persecution: Domestic Terror Law, Big Tech, and Big Media May Target Christians
CBN - Now that Joe Biden has been sworn in as the nation's 46th president, what may lie ahead for the United States? Will Americans experience greater freedom and prosperity, or might Big Tech help government impose more restrictions that help to create a new totalitarian normal?
It was a rare display of force – one normally seen only in third-world, totalitarian countries – 25,000 National Guard troops in the nation's capital were on a massive security mission: protecting Joe Biden and those attending his swearing-in ceremony.
Yet, this was not a first for an American inaugural.
In 1861, the U.S. Cavalry stationed sharpshooters on rooftops and troops along the inaugural route to protect then unpopular president-elect Abraham Lincoln as his carriage traveled down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol.
Five weeks later, the first shots of the Civil War rang out over Fort Sumter.
Now, 160 years later, some people believe a divided America is on the precipice of a second civil war. But the Senior Editor of The American Conservative, author Rod Dreher, believes the country may be on the brink of what he calls a "Father Kolakovic moment."
