Excerpt from President Joe Biden’s January 6 speech: “So now let’s step up. Write the next chapter in American history, where January six marks not the end of democracy but the beginning of a renaissance of liberty and fair play. I did not seek this fight right to this Capitol a year ago today, but I will not shrink from it either. I will stand in this breach. I will defend this nation, and I will allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of democracy. We will make sure the will of the people is heard. That the ballot prevails, not violence. That authority of this nation will always be peacefully transferred. I believe the power of the presidency and the purpose is to unite this nation, not divide it.”Read or listen to President Biden’s Jan. 6 speech in full here.
MEET TIM RYAN- OHIO CANDIDATE FOR U.S. SENATE
On Thursday, January 6, 2022 the Clermont County Democratic Party was honored to host Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan running for the U.S. Senate to replace Rob Portman who announced his retirement last year. Mr. Ryan is a passionate Democrat and champion for workers’ rights. “In Congress, Tim has fought for working families in his district and across the country — opposing unfair trade deals that would ship jobs overseas, pushing to raise wages, and working to protect the promise of a secure retirement by strengthening Medicare and Social Security.” There are 301 days until the 2022 midterm elections. Please consider supporting our Democratic candidates by volunteering or donating to their campaigns. Our democracy is on the line this year. To volunteer or donate to Tim Ryan’s campaign visit his website here.

In today’s contentious political climate, understanding religion’s role in American government is more important than ever. Christian nationalists assert that our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and advocate an agenda based on this popular historical claim. But is this belief true? The Founding Myth answers the question once and for all. Andrew L. Seidel builds his case by comparing the Ten Commandments to the Constitution and contrasting biblical doctrine with America’s founding philosophy, showing that the Declaration of Independence contradicts the Bible.
