GEORGIA, January 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Democrats appear to have cemented their takeover of the federal government Tuesday by electing Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock to the United States Senate, sending Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler home and giving Democrat Joe Biden a united Democrat Congress to work with when he takes office as President of the United States on January 20, which is all but imminent.

With Biden being declared the winner of the presidential election last fall and the House of Representatives remaining in Democrat hands, the direction of America’s next two-to-four years came down to these two Senate seats, which went on to runoff elections because none of the Senate candidates broke 50% in November, per state election rules.

As of Wednesday morning, Warnock has officially been declared the victor over Loeffler, while Ossoff has a slight edge over Perdue in a race that hasn’t yet been formally called. Both Democrats have declared victory, but neither Republican has conceded defeat.

Assuming those results hold, however, Ossoff and Warnock’s victories give the Senate a 50-50 split, effectively giving Democrats control because all tie votes would be broken by very likely incoming Vice President Kamala Harris.

Pictured above c.2009: Lisa Miller with her daughter Isabella

More than 10 years ago, in 2009, Lisa Miller took her daughter Isabella and traveled to Nicaragua because of her deep concern that her daughter was being "traumatized" by court-ordered visits with her former lesbian partner.

Two court-appointed advocates – one clinical therapist and one social worker – testified to the apparent trauma experienced by Isabella in sworn testimony. And, Miller, herself, also testified to the apparent trauma experienced by her daughter.

Other affidavits filed with the courts at that time alleged that abuse was taking place.

And so, in 2009, Miller decided to take action and remove Isabella from a deteriorating situation, traveling to Central America.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks President Trump to show clemency to all involved with the Lisa Miller case by granting them a presidential pardon.

Since 2009, three other people – including two Mennonite pastors and a businessman – who helped Lisa and Isabella travel to Nicaragua were convicted of “international kidnapping” for helping Lisa and her daughter, despite the fact that Lisa had custody of her daughter when they went to Central America.

These Mennonite pastors and businessman have already served their time in federal prisons, but their unjust convictions are a stain on their records.  

And now, even though Isabella is considered a legal adult, Lisa Miller is still forced to “hide out” abroad, away from her home country.

The time has come to call an end to the Millers’ exile.

Please SIGN this petition, urging President Trump to issue all involved with Lisa a presidential pardon, and give the Millers a chance to freely return to the United States.

President Trump has been an unwavering ally to the Christian community, and he and his administration have done more for the pro-life cause and religious freedom than all other administrations combined.

By pardoning Lisa and the men who helped her and her daughter, President Trump could once again show his solidarity with the Christians who support and love him and continue to stand with him.

At the time that these events transpired, Miller thought she was doing the right thing to protect her daughter and she has already “served time” in exile.

Therefore, a presidential pardon could never be taken to mean that an actual kidnapping won't be pursued by federal authorities in the future.

But, given the special set of circumstances in this particular case, we urge President Trump to issue the pardon because the time the Millers have spent abroad – away from family, friends, and colleagues – could be considered “time served.”

And, by pardoning Lisa, President Trump could also give Isabella a new lease on life. By pardoning Kenneth Miller and Timothy Miller (who are unrelated to Lisa and Isabella) and Christian businessman Philip Zodhiates, President Trump could clear their records and give them a new lease on life, too.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

Democrats are expected to use unified government to pursue a litany of far-reaching agenda items, such as legislation to codify Roe v. Wade in federal law or the so-called “Equality Act.” More worryingly to conservatives, however, Democrats can also pursue a range of agenda items that could effectively immunize themselves from future elections, such as “packing” the Supreme Court, permanently increasing their Senate seats by granting statehood to Washington, D.C., and/or Puerto Rico, and granting citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants on the expectation that most would become Democrat voters

(With such a narrow margin of control, Senate Democrats will technically still be constrained by the legislative filibuster, which requires 60 votes to pass most legislation. But while Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to consider procedural maneuvers such as the two-speech rule to circumvent the filibuster, his Democrat successor Chuck Schumer is not expected to show any such restraint.)

It remains to be seen what role, if any, election fraud played in the race, or if Perdue and/or Loeffler will demand recounts or investigations of the results. Another factor that likely contributed to the GOP’s defeat was McConnell blocking a Trump-backed increase of COVID-19 relief checks from $600 to $2,000.
