Micah Beckwith has claimed he has talks w/”The Lord” about events or matters specific to Beckwith’s run for IN Lt Gov. [FN1] Temptation to use satire to lampoon an extremist candidate, like Beckwith is great. We also need to address the chats seriously and as falsehoods..1/11

There seem to have been two “chats.” The first was described by Beckwith in a “selfie” video Beckwith shot in his car: “I sent those riots to Washington. What you saw yesterday [01/06/21] was my hand at work.”…
