Author Stephen E. Strang Warned of a ‘Police State’ Mentality in America Very Early in the Coronavirus Crisis

Author of ‘God, Trump, and COVID-19’ Applauds Recent Ruling in Pennsylvania That Called Stringent Shutdown Edicts ‘Unconstitutional’and Praises President Donald Trump for His Work on Behalf of the U.S.A.

ORLANDO, FLA.— A federal judge recently declared Pennsylvania’s coronavirus lockdown orders to be “unconstitutional”—saying they overreached and were arbitrary. Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf had put those strict edicts in place. “You can’t tell 13 million Pennsylvanians that they have to stay home. That’s not America. It never was. That order was horrible,” an attorney for the plaintiffs, Thomas W. King III, told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4.

Stephen E. Strangfounder of Charisma Media and author of the compelling new book “God, Trump, and COVID-19,”  applauds the new ruling—and was among the first to warn of dangerous government overreach in these precarious times. In his book, Strang writes that in early 2020, “Few of us expected that battling the outbreak would create governmental powers in which America would begin to look like a police state.”

Yet “as new restrictions on gatherings were lowered to fifty and then again to fewer than ten people, it quickly became apparent that this pandemic would be a game changer,” Strang also notes. “Going to sporting events, movies, theatrical events, concerts, and church meetings was suddenly forbidden.”

Importantly, double standards during this time were obvious, Strang points out. “As the country went into lockdown mode, America’s pro-life leaders voiced alarm that churches were being forced to close down, while in most states abortion clinics were allowed to stay open.” Says Strang, “Why were churches so quickly deemed ‘nonessential’? And why was the public so quick to accept this?”

The United States—under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump—has been steadily climbing out of the clutches of this pandemic. Very early on, Trump closed the U.S. border and issued travel bans to protect our country. He approved numerous aid packages, created a White House task force, and marshalled untold federal resources toward defeating this virus. Throughout it all, the president has kept the nation clearly informed.

Above all, he’s always promoted the freedoms of Americans, shared his steadfast belief in our constitutional rights—and stood up for people of faith.

Strang praises the president for his unshakeable belief in America. Trump always “displays true leadership, authority, strength, and experience,” says Strang.

Adds Strang—who has interviewed four U.S. presidents, including our 45th—“Donald Trump believes America remains a great country even though we’ve drifted away from the clear vision of the Founders. He possesses an undeniable faith in America, and a big reason for that is his own lifelong faith in God.”

Strang also says, “This election is so important for Christians and for people of all faiths. He is a champion for our belief in God and for returning us to the foundation of our freedoms in this country.”

As most Americans know, a multi-agency effort has been underway within the federal government to create a COVID-19 vaccine. Last week, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Defense released two documents outlining the Trump Administration’s specific strategy to deliver safe and effective vaccine doses to Americans “as quickly and reliably as possible.”

“Donald Trump is a leader, and at this point in American history we need a real leader who can get private enterprise and government—even the Democrats—to work together to take us through this crisis and find a vaccine for the deadly coronavirus,” Strang notes in “God, Trump, and COVID-19.”

Strang has been writing with authority about President Donald Trump for years. “God, Trump, and COVID-19”is a dynamic follow-up to Strang’s earlier book, “God, Trump and the 2020 Election.” The new book shares insider information about China and the virus—and conveys the high stakes of the 2020 presidential election. It also addresses a key question for Christians: “Where is God in all this?”

“God, Trump, and COVID-19” is published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach, and equip Christians. The book is available in hardcover, paperback and e-book formats at

Stephen E. Strang is an award-winning journalist who founded Charisma magazine, the only national evangelical magazine to endorse President Donald Trump. He is also the bestselling author of “God and Donald Trump.”

Voted by Time magazine as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America, Strang has interviewed four U.S. presidents—including President Trump—and has been featured on many media outlets, including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and CBN.
