A People's Democrat!!! 


The corporate Uniparty   politicians kept Pastor Powell OFF the ballot in 2022 because of a sneaky trick they passed in the middle of the night in 2021.  

Pastor's effort this year was dedicated to the memory of a wonderful young lady, JESSICA DOTY WHITAKER. 

Sadly the 2022 campaign was ended before it began. 

#JusticeforJessicaDotyWhitaker will come, I pray soon. 

"I am a People's DEMOCRAT within the Democratic Party. 

I am Pro-Faith, Pro-Freedom, Pro-Gun Rights, Pro- Life, Pro-Worker and Pro-America! "

Indianapolis, Indiana 

Congress doesn't need another millionaire, 

Washington needs an Exorcist

                           ...and Pastor Powell can do that job too!         

"Thank you to the nearly 10,000 Hoosier Democrats that voted for me in 2020 in District 9 to represent them in the United States House of Representatives and advocate the OUR FAIR SHARE program!!! 

America needs better! 

In  2021, In the Indiana General Assembly the (Uniparty)  leadership passed a law in the dark of night with a whimsical desire to RESTRICT voices in the 2022 primary. So YOU once again can choose the LESSER OF TWO EVILS. 

Please watch for yourself the Uni-Partisan Kangaroo Court that met in Indianapolis on February 18, 2022. Please go to 3:16:17 on the video that is when the show trial begins, just follow the link :


"I'm a JFK Democrat, in my view, this is the path  for future success of the Indiana Democratic Party and the Democratic National Committee. 

That same losing formula will be on display on November 8, 2022 and no matter what kind of sneaky tricks these "leaders" have up their sleeves in 2023 and 2024, the only way to handle this godless adversary is following the Rabbi's words remembered in Matthew's gospel account Chapter 10, verse 16.   

My "OUR FAIR SHARE" program of fairness for the Middle Class, Union members, Small business Owners, Working Poor and Entrepreneurs will be even more urgent in years to come. 

However, my time as a candidate has come and gone. I have tried to inform and wake up citizens since my first venture into politics in 1986. It is time I retire and live a life of prayer and service to my family and the Church. 

As a pastor, I will continue to advocate my Our Fair Share program to alleviate the suffering of our people. 

I will also advocate in the Democratic Party for a return to the principles of our Constitution and the removal of Maoist organizations that the established party leadership has allowed to enter under their watch. Marxist/Maoist groups like Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Socialists of America have no place in a major American political party."

         2020 U.S. Democratic Congressional candidate

"Our    Fair    Share"

You know since his first race for Congress in 2020 YOU only are worse off ... 40 year RECORD HIGH Inflation, High Unemployment, Food Shortages, Continued Bioweapon New Variant attacks from Communist China, continued CIA efforts to throw America into WW III over Ukraine! 

Why did this Middle Class Protestant pastor run in the 2020 Democratic Congressional primary against the Indiana Communist Democratic machine and receive nearly 10,000 Hoosier Democratic votes, even WINNING Washington County! 

One reason: FREEDOM.  

Pastor Powell predicts Cindi Wirth will be the 2022 Democratic nominee against Mike Pence's brother and she will go the way of all radical  Democratic nominees outside of CD 1 and 7.. 

Just as she lost two races in 2020, both the State Representative Democratic primary in June and the State Senate General election she was appointed to in November, she will add a victory against a perennial candidate in May and show what a waste of money and time her candidacy is in losing to Pence in the fall my guesstimate Pence 65% Wirth 32% Other 3% . 

Congressman Pence returns for another 2 years and Wirth's candidacy was WORTHLESS. 

One,  DEBT RELIEF for the Middle Class and recent college graduates....if the Wall Street Banksters can get Trillions, the Middle Class must receive OUR FAIR SHARE , how about access to Congressional Health Insurance...if Pelosi, McConnell, Young and Pence get the best, the Middle Class must receive...


Who will speak up for the Middle Class?  

A People's Democrat 

You had an ADVOCATE !!!

The Powell PANDEMIC Protection Plan 
for the Middle Class 

was first ADVOCATED IN THE SPRING of 2020

                       How much better would YOUR life be now...

if Mark J. Powell, a People's Democrat won in 2020

  1. Any additional Major Debt Spending MUST have a Federal Reserve Bank Audit.
  2. Congressional Health Insurance Plan Access for the Middle Class Immediately. 
  3. Direct Electronic Transfers into the Middle Class bank accounts immediately.
  4. Middle Class Federal Income Tax Exemption on Household incomes of $120,000 or less after Pandemic crisis. Increase Tax Rates will rise for those making over $5 million to make up the difference...spread FAIRNESS not the VIRUS!!!
  5. State and Federal Tax Exemption of Unemployment Benefits immediately.
  6. Citizens who exercise their Constitutional Right to a Religious Exemption will NOT be denied and a $100,000 fine and federal prison will await all those who take part in the denial of a religious exemption.

2020 Democratic Congressional Primary Candidate (444 words)

President’s Day 2.22.22

Regarding my recent removal from the 2022 Sixth District Congressional race, I wanted to state clearly in my view why the Indiana Democratic Party Leadership wanted me silenced.

I am a CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT within the Democratic Party.  I am Pro-Faith, Pro-Freedom, Pro-Gun Rights, Pro- Life, Pro-Worker. Pro-Family and Pro-America! I am AGAINST Communists, Socialists, Racists, Globalists, Government Mandates, Passports, unvetted Child Sex Trafficking disguised as Immigration and the reckless spending by both Globalist Republicans and Communist Democrats in Washington. D.C.  

In 2021, the Indiana General Assembly’s Globalist Republican and Communist Democratic leadership passed a law in the dark of night with the whimsical desire to control candidates in the 2022 primary. 

Please watch for yourself the “Bi-Partisan Kangaroo Court” that met in Indianapolis on February 18, 2022. Please go to my 2024 exploratory Congressional campaign website www.pastorpowellforcongress.webs.com and click on the Light Blue LINK in the middle of the page. My “Show Trial” begins at 3:16:17 into the video.

So as a political analyst instead of a candidate this election season, let me predict what will occur in our Sixth District Congressional District race. 

I predict Cindi Wirth will be the 2022 Democratic nominee against Mike Pence's brother Greg and she will go the way of all radical Communist Democratic nominees in Indiana. 

Just as she lost two races in 2020, both the State Representative Democratic primary in June and the State Senate General election she was appointed to in November, she will add a victory against a perennial candidate in May and show what a waste of money and time her candidacy is in losing to Pence in November. 

My November 8, 2022 prediction Pence Wins with 65%, Wirth 32% and Other 3% . Congressman Pence returns for another 2 years and Wirth's candidacy was simply WORTHLESS in the Conservative Sixth .

In 2024 when I can get on the ballot unless the Globalist GOP and Communist Democrat Leadership find another sneaky way to exclude my and other voices of both parties like the two women Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate and multiple patriotic Republican candidates that the Pence Machine hates so very much that were excluded, there will be many reasons to run and win the Sixth District seat. 

One, DEBT RELIEF for the Middle Class and recent college graduates; if the Wall Street Banksters can get Trillions, the Middle Class must receive OUR FAIR SHARE. 

(Note: Click on the audio below. Did you know 75% of the American economy is dependent on retail sales numbers?  Last month excluding gasoline sales and car sales that national number was DOWN.* )  

Two, how about access to Congressional Health Insurance; if Pelosi, McConnell, Young and Pence get the best, the Middle Class must receive OUR FAIR SHARE!!! 

Unless the Good Lord calls me Home, I will be advocating a return to patriotism and sanity in the Indiana Democratic Party.

God Save America.

Rev. Mark J. Powell Files in for 6th District Congressional Democratic Nomination


United States Democratic Congressional Candidate Rev. Mark J. Powell, (D-IN 6), who received nearly 10,000 Hoosier votes in the 2020 Democratic Congressional Primary filed Thursday January 27th,2022 to be the 2022 Democratic nominee to face U.S. Rep. Greg Pence (R-IN 6) in the November 8th election.

Pastor Powell, 62, stated, “My 2022 Democratic Congressional campaign is dedicated to the memory of JESSICA DOTY WHITAKER. Jessica, a 24-year-old mother and elderly care assistant was assassinated on July 4th weekend 2020.

Why was she murdered in cold blood? Simply, Jessica was white and said to a BLM supporter “all lives matter”. You see, Jessica was with her fiancé who is Hispanic, his friend who is Hispanic and his friend's girlfriend who was like the 44th president Black and White.

The BLM assassin waited on a bridge overlooking the Canal and as Jessica's group passed shots rang out and she was mortally wounded.

As a pastor I comforted the family. The family wanted action in finding the killer. They asked me to help. I personally called Sen. Young’s and Congressman Pence's office. 

The Senator did call Jessica's mom to offer condolences but asking to assist us deal with the FBI as this was a HATE crime fell on deaf ears.

For far too long Washington is ruled by BIG money and powerful interests...and these elected folks in both parties forget who they are supposed to work for. 

If I'm nominated by the Democratic Party May 3rd and elected on November 8th, I will continue to bulldog this assassination investigation until the killer is found.

I also pledge to make sure the American Middle Class is cared for in my OUR FAIR SHARE program. Learn more by visiting www.pastorpowellforcongress.webs.com

Please pray for Jessica Doty Whitaker's family and friends and for my candidacy as we remember Jessica and the millions of Americans affected by mindless violence.”

Pence is worth a “pence” on Bannon Vote

On Thursday, October 21, 2021, the Daily Journal published a story about the U.S. Congress passing a resolution holding long time Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for not answering a subpoena from the House Select Committee investigating the  controversy of January 6th prior to the official counting of Electoral College votes by both Chambers of the Congress.

Seems your paper points out that Congressman Gregory Pence (R-IN) and older brother of the former congressman, governor, vice president and current Ronald Reagan imitator,  Michael R. Pence,  was the only Member of Congress to not vote on the resolution.

Once again, the Pence boys failed to show up and do the job the people have sent them to Washington to do.

If I was the elected Congressman from the 6th District today, I would have shown up to do my job as Representative to Congress and vote.  

While I like Mr. Bannon’s insights on the Chinese Communist Party’s activity here in the United States and around the globe, I would have voted to hold him in contempt.

Mr. Bannon for all his gifts sometimes fails to see the forest from the tree. The United States Congress has a sacred duty to ask questions on behalf of the American people. 

While the current majority make up is not to Mr. Bannon’s taste, that is not a reason to shake the dust off his shoes at the institution the Constitution entrusts to act in the public interest.

My advice to Mr. Bannon is to show up when you receive a Congressional subpoena. Next time it might be your side handing them out like candy and your opponents will shake the dust from their shoes. That kind of arrogance Mr. Bannon leads to lawlessness and disorder. Your Harvard degree and your Roman Catholic faith made you smarter and wiser than being an agent of anarchy and continued chaos.

My advice to Congressman Pence is to show up and vote on the House Floor. Even for the most controversial votes, even when you know your future Christian Democratic challenger will challenge you to debate your lackluster leadership in times of national crisis.

Mr. Congressman, your $12 million dollars in your bank account can buy a lot of things but not a seat representing people you might believe are beneath you and your brother.  Keep the seat warm Mr. Pence and consider it a lease not a purchase.  ###

Powell asks Young and Braun to Deny Senator Donnelly

Former Vatican City State resident Pastor Mark J. Powell who will file for the Democratic nomination in the 6th Congressional District in January calls for cutting U.S. diplomatic costs in Rome.

WHITELAND- 2020 United States Democratic Congressional candidate who will file for the 2022 Democratic nomination in 3 months, the Rev. Mark J. Powell, M.Div. (D-IN 6) responded to the news of another Hoosier joining the Biden administration. The president on Friday, October 8th  nominated former U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) to be ambassador to the Vatican. His appointment as ambassador to the Holy See must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Pastor Powell stated, “I lived at the Vatican as a Catholic seminarian during the 1980-81 academic year. At that time, the United States did not have a special ambassador with all its associated costs for building and staff. It takes 8 minutes by car to get to the North American College at 14 Via del Gianicolo Hill or to the Apostolic Palace from the Embassy compound. The U.S. Embassy to Italy and the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See are a 4-minute walk from each other, a 1-minute car drive if security is an issue.

While Senator Donnelly is a member of my party and apparently a nice person, that is not a reason to carry on a needless taxpayer expense. The Vatican embassy was started in 1984 by the Reagan Administration to have more immediate communication to then Polish native Pope John Paul II when Poland was amid a crisis with the Communist Polish government controlled by the Soviet politburo in Moscow.

With the Soviet Communist threat in Europe over and with Pope Francis’ cooperation with the Chinese Communist Party, which is America’s and the Free World's greatest threat, it would be logical and prudent to send a message to the Bishop of Rome that the United States will not play favorites with Christian denominations. 

I will also introduce legislation in January 2023 to close the Apostolic Nunciature to the United States. For far too long priest personnel files have been transferred from American dioceses to the Vatican Embassy so prosecutor’s investigations of clergy sex abuse was thwarted because of diplomatic immunity.

The solution is simple, let the U.S. Embassy to Italy handle matters with the Christian denomination across from the Tiber. I urge Senator Young and Senator Braun to vote NO to Senator Donnelly’s appointment to the Holy See. President Biden could appoint Senator Donnelly to be Ambassador to Italy (1) and save the taxpayers some money and still have him in Rome. On that matter I urge a YES vote.”

The 62-year-old, Johnson County Democratic activist ran as a Christian Democrat in the 2020 Democratic Congressional primary in Indiana’s 9th Congressional District finishing second with nearly 10,000 Hoosier Democratic votes. With redistricting, Johnson County is now in the 6th District which includes all of Johnson, Shelby, Hancock, Rush, Henry, Fayette, Wayne and Union Counties and portions of Bartholomew, Marion and Randolph counties. The Democratic primary is May 3, 2022.

Powell remembers JFK’s 103rd birth anniversary, asks citizens to watch his June 1963 speech on Civil Rights which was prophetic to today’s concerns sparked by the Minneapolis Murder.


United States Congressional candidate Rev. Mark J. Powell, M.Div. (D-IN 09) stated today America remembers the 103rd anniversary of the birth of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. President Kennedy’s brave leadership on racial relations could be used today.

Powell, a 60 year old Protestant minister stated, “On the 103rd anniversary of JFK'S birth, this address from the Oval Office on June 11, 1963 nearly 57 years ago (See #1) was prophetic to the situation in Minneapolis and throughout Black America today. Kennedy said, "We will not be free until ALL our citizens are free."

I run for Congress in 2020 because I know America is better than last night. 

I run for Congress because I know there are actions the Federal government MUST do today to bring peace and reconciliation to oppressed communities but there is CURRENTLY no political will.

I run for Congress because I know next year in America, with the correct leaders in place, America will not be Black America, White America, Brown or Red or Yellow America but RED, WHITE AND BLUE AMERICA. That is the Land I see over that new horizon of tomorrow. That is the nation where freedom is cherished. Then we will be a better nation than today.

Currently, how can we say to the oppressed people in Mainland China the American system is better than the Chinese Communist Party's system where their police arrest and kill their citizens when we here do it in our own nation and on camera? 

America has no choice but to change. If we do not change for the better we will be a House divided and from this moral division, we will not be able to stand. 

Let us join together to heal the Land we love. Then freedom will blossom around the world.

This primary campaign started out in January addressing White Supremacists in Lawrence County (See #2), sadly we end this primary campaign addressing the police murder of an American who was Black. 

As President Kennedy stated so many years ago, “We are not free until ALL our citizens are free.” America has work to do. I am ready, willing and able.” Powell stated.
