America, the land of the free, has more of our own citizens in prison and jail than other countries in the world. We are number one in have the highest incarceration rate in the world! According to an April 2019 article on the “Equal Justice Initiative” website called “United States Still Has Highest Incarceration Rate in the World”, America incarcerates at a higher rate than all other industrialized countries. The article says, “New prison and jail population data released this week by the United States Department of Justice shows the United States still incarcerates its citizens at a rate 5 to 10 times higher than other industrialized countries.”
Our president is trying to reduce prison time with a new bill he signed on December 21, 2018. President Donald Trump signed the “First Step Act” last year, which will start to reduce our incarceration rate. Inmates can now earn credits for early release, and this is the reason why Brian Hill didn’t have to serve more time in prison. This is a good first step in trying to reduce our massive prison population.
Unfortunately, the same president that signed this bill is being harassed and bullied constantly by radical democrats that are trying to impeach him and want to put him in prison. Well, when you try to “drain the swamp”, the gators will attack. (Apology to the alligators, I’m not trying to compare you to the corrupt politicians. I love gators!)
Pelosi privately told Democrats she wants Trump ‘in prison’: report BY CHRIS MILLS RODRIGO – 06/05/19
“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to Politico.
The American people are being exposed to corruption in the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) in the latest Inspector General report. President Donald Trump said in his campaign that he was going to “drain the swamp”, and corruption is being exposed like never before. This is corruption at the highest levels of the American government. There was a time in history comparable to our time in the very distant past.
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Brian’s Christmas miracle led to a very special day. The day after Brian Hill’s release from prison after only serving a record 10 hours, Brian and his family went to the “Ark Encounter” in Williamstown, Kentucky. This trip to go see a replica of Noah’s ark has me thinking about the time that Noah and his family lived. There was corruption and wickedness all over the Earth at that time. It sounds exactly like the times that we are living in right now. Jesus said that the last days would be exactly like the days of Noah, and we are seeing that in our time.
Matthew 24:37 King James Version (KJV)
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Jesus also lived through a time of corruption during his lifetime. He witnessed judicial corruption, religious corruption and police brutality.

But He said, “Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
Matthew 23:23 (NET Bible)
23 “Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You give a tenth of mint, dill, and cumin, yet you neglect what is more important in the law—justice, mercy, and faithfulness! You should have done these things without neglecting the others.
And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him,
They spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head.
They kept beating His head with a reed, and spitting on Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him.
