Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States

Michael Richard “Mike” Pence was born in June 1959 in Columbus, Indiana. He graduated from Columbus North High School, earned a B.A. in History from Hanover College, and a Juris Doctor from the Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.

In his childhood and early adulthood, Pence was a Roman Catholic and a Democrat. While in college, Pence became an evangelical, born-again Christian, and would later identify as a “common-sense conservative” on the order of Ronald Reagan.

After law school, Pence entered private law practice. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for twelve years before becoming Indiana’s Governor. He held that office until January 2017, when he resigned to take his place as Vice President of the United States.

Pence is married to Karen and they have three children. Pence is described as being staunchly conservative on fiscal and social issues, with his political views strongly shaped by his Christian faith.

IN THE NEWS

During a four-day trip to Latin America to try to address the ongoing turbulence in Venezuela, Vice President Mike Pence took time out to speak about the unrest and violence that happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. That was where white supremacists, KKK and neo-Nazis appeared as part of a white nationalist rally to protest the removal of a Confederate statue. They clashed with leftist groups protesting the event.

“The president made it very clear in his statement this weekend that we condemn all forms of hate and violence and particularly…we condemn the hate and the violence, and the bigotry of the organizations that showed up in Charlottesville, like the KKK and white supremacists. The president was clear on that and will continue to be clear,” Vice President Pence said.
