A new survey from the non-partisan Public Religion Research Institute found that 30% of America’s Republican party believe that “Because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.” This dangerous attitude was played out in the January 6th Insurrection within the nation’s capitol,
A growing number of public figures are employing violent measures against those who disagree with them. The latest example of political malice is a video posted by Arizona representative, Paul Gosar. It portrayed him killing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a sword and then threatening President Biden. While we all possess the freedom to post messages on mass media, our congressional representatives have the duty to respect one another.
On Monday, October 15th a call was made to Gosar instructing him to take the offending video down and make a statement repudiating the support of any type of violence. Gosar followed orders and published the following message, “I do not espouse violence or harm towards any Member of Congress or Mr. Biden. The video depicts the fight taking place next week on the House floor and symbolizes the battle for the soul of America.” Then he and others of the Republican party continued to make light of the threats portrayed on the video.
|Censure in the U.S. House of Representatives is a formal and public condemnation of an individual whose actions run counter to the group’s acceptable standards for individual behavior. It is performed when the body’s members wish to publicly reprimand a U.S. president, a member of Congress, a judge or a cabinet member. |
It is a formal statement of disapproval.
On the following Wednesday 30 Democratic lawmakers announced their intention to censure Gosar. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi began Gosar’s hearing with “Death threats against a member of Congress and a president of the United States in an animated video does not make those death threats any less real or less serious,” She took great pains to specify “This is an insult to the institution of the House of Representatives. It is not just about us as members of Congress, it is a danger that represents to everyone in the country.”
The number two House democrat, Steny Hoyer, spoke to the charges, “I think it’s a criminal violation to make a threat against a public official, a federal public official,” Hoyer continued “So this may be a criminal act as well as an act which certainly brings dishonor on the House of Representatives.” He continued “No one, Democrat or Republican, ought to be allowed to engage in the promotion of violence against a fellow Member or indeed a fellow American. Because we know where the glorification and promotion of violence leads – we have seen it”
According to a Newsweek report minutes after Gosar’s censure and loss of committee assignments, Gosar instructed his staff to retweet the offending video. He also wrote “I remind everyone that pretending to be upset over a cartoon and wanting to suppress the ideas in a cartoon is what happened to the Charlie Hebdo magazine in France,” Gosar has it all wrong. He was never threatened at gunpoint for publishing an image of a revered figure. He was censured for showing absolutely total disrespect for the elevated office that he was holding.
With the way things are going on Capitol Hill, we may be seeing more of these proceedings.

All four individuals here are doubly ruled, meaning that their two selves, INNER and OUTER, are ruled by one planet. This only occurs in 12 of the 84 Dayology Signatures, but when it takes place it is hard to miss. It indicates serious effort in the worldly matters ruled by their Day Ray.
If there is a problem here, it is that double ruled individuals find it difficult to discern the subtle differences between their INNER and OUTER energies. They may think that because something seems natural and right to them that everyone else does (or should) feel the same way too.
These double ruled folks can be very bothersome when they may push their own agendas without an understanding of the whole matter. Still many fine things are accomplished through the drive of individuals with doubled rulers, as they take the time to see the whole picture.
