The Battle Cry.

The Battle Cry.

The following scriptures were posted on my campaign Facebook page in early May 2020 when the incumbent first began his libelous campaign. I was astounded at the depth of depravity that he would go to at that point in time and it was merely his anti-Semitic accusations. Those of you who follow this page saw much more after that.

Nevertheless, post-primary 2020, the incumbent continues with his slander and libel. To me this is amazing and astounding even as, while I knew him to be of low moral character, I had no idea how low he could go or creative he could be with his lies.

Regardless, the response is the same: “The Battle Cry.” I offer this to you again as this IS the way that Chrisitans fight.

Join with me in believing these truths and acting upon them:

Write the Vision Down!!!

(Habakkuk 2:2)

You are coming against me and all of Brevard County with false testimony, fear and intimidation, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the Israelite armies, which you have defied.

This very day the Lord will put you in my power.  I will defeat you.  

Then the whole of Brevard County will know that we have a God and everyone here will see that the Lord has his own powerful, mighty, righteous ways to save his people.  He is victorious in battle.

(1 Samuel 17:45-47) 

The tone and attitude we must always have is humble, gentle, self-forgetful but firm, never perceived as cringy and wishy-washy.  (2 Cor 10:1). We also must always have end-less patience and never become irritated.  We are unoffendable.  (1 Tim 1:18)

We live in the world but do not wage war as the world does and our weapons are not the weapons of the world.  To the contrary, we are praying and working by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom and power.

We take on the 6 pieces of the armor of God (truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, God’s Word(, (Ephesians 6:10-20) but activate them with prayer.  

Prayer is the divinely authorized mechanism God has given us to tap into His Power and to ask for His directions and guidance.

The purpose of our fight and why we use our tools is NEVER for marketing or manipulation but for demolishing that entirely massively corrupt culture.  (2 Cor 10:4).

We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God.  

Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience to Him into maturity.

We demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God.

We break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God.

We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One.

We are armed with dynamic weaponry:  truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, God’s Word and prayer.

Specifically, we pray for clear, spiritual vision.  We ask that we are able to see the enemy’s activity and that we are fully aware of the spiritual resources he has given us to disarm and defeat him. 

Victory is available to us but it will only come as we pray for God’s help in the battle.  Prayer is crucial.

But we always point to God (not loudly, though, but quietly, humbly and gently) and give him the glory, knowing and noting that the purpose of this campaign and our whole lives is to glorify God. 

We take our orders from Him.  Just how we roll and how we believe the world should roll. 

This is who we are.

A Response to Incumbent Randy Fine’s Most Recent Falsehoods

The incumbent continually tries to mislead and distract the public instead of addressing issues important to our district. Last weekend, he made outrageous and unsubstantiated allegations against my campaign consultant Robert Burns — an Army Veteran who honorably served our country, and even retired from wounds received in combat.


Let me be clear — these claims are categorically false

Robert Burns is not a felon in any state — let alone four states. I pay his firm a fee for services rendered, the same as any other candidate would, including my opponent. Robert Burns is a registered Republican who has voted in every election since honorably retiring from the Army in 2017. 

The incumbent is dishonestly making these claims to distract from his own record. I would love to address him, along with the public, on his own record for District 53. Unfortunately, he has declined every single upcoming interview, forum, and debate scheduled by independent third parties. 

On Tuesday, June 30th, I participated in Palm Bay Live, the same forum in which the incumbent agreed to participate last week, but apparently backed out of his interview at the last minute. I invited the incumbent him to join me during my June 30th interview but he declined. However, because I value transparency and democracy, I was willing to share my own time so voters have an opportunity to simultaneously hear from both candidates and ask questions. You deserve answers.

On July 3, I will also be attending the 2020 Republican Space Coast Hob Nob, an event in which he has, sadly, declined to participate. On the contrary, I am willing to make myself accessible and would be happy to address in detail any questions you may have.

Those of you who are following my campaign know why I am running for House District 53 — I was appalled by the duplicitous manner in which the incumbent handled CS/HB 7087 in February 2020. (You can read details on my website, https://www.adkins53.com and view a video of him lying directly to Representative Hogan Johnson at the House Education meeting on February 12, 2020. For proof that FSU was not informed, see the linked Tallahassee Democrat article.) 

Since early May, Randy Fine has flooded social media with complete falsehoods of “Mother’s Day harassment” and “anti-Semitism,” all of which were addressed in my May 12, 2020 press release. Despite my explicit rebuttals and the repeated facts citing no evidence for his libelous statements, he continues. Similarly, he twisted the City of Melbourne’s handling and decision making with respect to the fireworks, calling them “unpatriotic.”  

Simply put, this is fake news. The incumbent repeatedly makes bombastic, outrageous statements without any proof. Is this the kind of representation the people of District 53 want?

I will now address Mr. Fine’s most recent falsehoods — stated on his campaign page on June 28, 2020 — specifically: (1) Robert Burns is a four-state felon and; (2) my campaign has a PAC that has not filed reports (asserting late filings are a crime, and I owe more than $10,000).

Most serious is the 100% false four-state felon accusation. 

Attached is a letter from a law firm I have hired to investigate this charge. Attorney Brian Savy and his legal staff have reviewed all criminal records in all 50 states and can confirm that Mr. Burns is NOT a four-state felon, nor does he have a single felony conviction anywhere.

With respect to the late filing of reports — yes. Mr. Burns was late in filing reports for his own PAC. I do not have a PAC. However, (1) failing to file a report on time is not a crime; (2) Mr. Burns’ PAC — Friends of Florida — does not “support my campaign;” (3) my campaign has filed every report on time; (4) my campaign has no fines; and (5) if Mr. Burns has fines for his PAC, they will be at most 25% of the $10,000 he raised or $2,500.

In fact, the incumbent most certainly understands all these things although he mislead the public with his statements, because he has a long history of the exact same violations and fines over the years in his own pac.

Even though the last falsehood about reporting is minutiae, it goes to show Mr. Fine’s campaign strategy — smear, smear, and smear some more.  

Like everything else the incumbent asserts, his claim that I have paid “almost all my campaign funds to Robert Burns” is 100% false. Since I began my campaign on March 24, 2020 until the end of June, 2020, I have paid his company, The Relentless Group, a total of $12,903.23 for social media and website development services. For that time period, my campaign has raised a total of $37,440.99, which is 34% of funds raised. 

I have gone to great lengths to create a website (https://www.adkins53.com) and make myself available — in person, on the telephone, or online for any and all questions. On the other hand, the incumbent refuses to address the issues and has NOT created a website where constituents can contact him.  

It also should be noted that he has not registered for the Republican Hob Nob which will be held on Friday, July 3. Instead, according to his Facebook, he is not attending this event out of fear of Covid while at the same time pushing for his own personal fireworks event with 20k people.

If this wasn’t enough, I just learned while writing this that last night Mr. Fine has reached a new low. In a Facebook post he used the tragic illness of some of my friends who volunteer with me that caught Covid-19. Some of which have been hospitalized. Without any evidence whatsoever, he falsely claimed that my friends were out door knocking, and handing out materials while sick. This is not even remotely true. My volunteers work from home by making phone calls to voters. It isn’t uncommon to see him be hypocritical, but using his own constituents misfortune goes beyond disappointing. It is appalling.

The only way we defeat this virus is by individuals taking personal responsibility. Government dictates will not solve…

Posted by State Representative Randy Fine on Thursday, July 2, 2020

Let’s look at the obvious facts — Mr. Fine: (1) lies repeatedly; (2) refuses to answer any questions publicly; (3) deletes all social media dissent; (4) deletes all queries for evidence for his mudslinging; and (5) blocks all who disagree with him.

The focus of this campaign should be how each candidate addresses the issues facing the constituents of House District 53. 

I invite you to see where I stand on the issues because it’s simple — politicians are to serve and not be served. 

I’m Marcie Adkins. See why I’m better for Brevard. 

Listen

Listen

Amidst the outrage that is everything in the United States today, I posted on my campaign page Saturday that I stand with our President and Barr.  That is true, I do.  

However, there is MORE which I do not think they are hearing, voices of those I love that I am embarrassed to say that I didn’t hear at first because of my shock and outrage.

Yes.  We all universally condemn George Floyd’s murder. Yes.  We all universally expect our LEOs to protect and serve us and demand that they do. Yes.  The violence and destruction IS pure evil heaped upon evil and must stop. Yes.  The violence does come from organized groups.

However:  there IS more.

There IS the truth of wrongfully incarcerated young black men.  There IS the truth of systemic poverty and crime arising from desperation. There IS systemic, long-standing racism.  There is a component of these protests born from these facts.

Yesterday, I spoke directly to one of the voices that I know and love from the boxing gym.  He is a prosperous, good, righteous Christian black man that I have worked with in the past.  However, he was wrongfully accused of a crime long ago and served a lot of time for it.  He has ALWAYS amazed me that he could be strong enough to forgive and move past the wrongs and thrive.

We didn’t speak of his story yesterday — we only spoke of how he is feeling right now and our lives.  But he is the kind of man we must look to in the future to help us re-build our society.  He is the leader of tomorrow and has been a strong leader of today for our youth for many years.

So, I apologize to this man and the many others that I have known by long-standing, intimate, boxing relationships.  You the silent, quiet, Godly, protesting but completely non-violent ones and are the voices we need to hear.  YOU will be the leaders of our future.  We need you to help hear your stories and understand them and establish our vision for the future, help us define the end-game, how to build up, not tear down.

Let us all be quiet enough to get to know them and hear them.  They are the silent praying types.  

Listen.  You can hear them with your heart.

“The voices of peaceful protest are being hijacked by violent radical elements.”

“The voices of peaceful protest are being hijacked by violent radical elements.”

I stand 100% with the words of our President and Attorney General.

Barr said “Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda. In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized and driven by anarchic and…far left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics.”

Outrage over over Floyd’s death is “real and legitimate.”

“Accountability for his death must be addressed, and is being addressed, through the regular process of our criminal justice system, both at the state and at the federal level,” he said. “That system is working and moving at exceptional speed.  Already initial charges have been filed by the state. That process continues to move forward and justice will be served.”

Our President said earlier, 80% of the RIOTERS in Minneapolis last night were from OUT OF STATE. They are harming businesses (especially African American small businesses), homes, and the community of good, hardworking Minneapolis residents who want peace, equality, and to provide for their families.

I couldn’t agree more. Opportunists and extremists are taking advantage of a tragedy to push their own agendas and cause harm to great American citizens and businesses. We must stand together as a community, and hold those responsible for destruction accountable.
