“The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by precedent, by implication, by erosion, by default, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other—until the day when they are suddenly declared to be the country’s official ideology.”

-Ayn Rand

The public debut of “Caitlyn” Jenner represents a watershed moment for American culture. Though most have not realized it, Jenner’s coming out party constitutes a significant “trial balloon” on the part of the progressive left and the media. It is an attempt to cash in on years of carefully managed stories on transgender “discrimination,” sympathetic portrayals of transgender characters in entertainment, and the generally successful campaign of the gay rights movement and social justice activists.

The goal is simple: normalize transgenderism to such an extent that any criticism of the concept or its practitioners will not be tolerated.

They must not be allowed to succeed. Whether the silent majority of Americans realize it or not, the transgender issue represents the last best opportunity to turn the tide in the culture wars. Make no mistake: the progressives are winning. Twenty years ago a person could openly criticize homosexuality. Today, thanks to the Supreme Court, people who do not enthusiastically endorse gay marriage are branded as bigots, disqualified from high-profile business positions, and generally dismissed as ignorant hicks whose views are outside of the scope of acceptable thought.

Media outlets have already taken sides and are branding people as being “transphobic” for not accepting the idea that Bruce Jenner is now a female. It is now “bigoted” to refer to Bruce as a “he.” Even so much as joking about Jenner is verboten. The media is rallying around him, protecting him, in spite of the fact that his refusal to get sex reassignment surgery, his sexual preference for women, and his recently having killed someone in a car accident all make him a very poor candidate as the face of transgenderism.

Nevertheless, they have made him the poster boy, hoping that everyday TV watchers won’t sweat the details and that the popularity of the Kardashians will keep him relevant. The next steps include some Will and Grace style sitcom to make transgenders seem more hip and fun, adoption by the Democratic Party as the next great civil rights issue, and finally a sustained campaign of legal and private ideological bullying until transgender acceptance is the new normal.


"The Line In The Sand"

Why must we draw the line at transgenderism? I argue that legitimization of transgenderism would constitute a cultural sea change. It would be the first time the cultural fascists had succeeded in enforcing genuine doublethink. Leftist ideology regarding transgenderism not only contradicts existing progressive doctrines (feminism), but is also literally false. You are being ordered to believe in a fairy tale—the idea that a dog can transform into a cat if it just wishes for it hard enough—and this is where the danger lies.

To be clear, I do not argue that we need to persecute or hate transgenders: people have the right to choose to play dress up and freely associate with others who indulge their delusions. What we need to protect is our right to disapprove of their behavior and reject their “science.” We must dig our heels in and fight. One is reminded of Picard’s words on the Borg in First Contact:

“We’ve made too many compromises already, too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again! The line must be drawn here! This far, no farther!”: might as well be GamerGate’s slogan.

Of course, in the film Jean-Luc eventually agrees with Lily, though this does not refute his point about the Borg. He is right when he says that repeated compromise and surrender will not work. As in any war, the longer good men wait to fight back, the more difficult it is to overcome a metastasizing and emboldened evil.

The progressives have been encouraged by traditional Americans’ reluctance to fight back due to a mixture of indifference, moral cowardice, and bemusement. They are strengthened by the tendency of mainstream society to not take them seriously, to say “Who cares about Bruce Jenner and the reality TV sideshow!”, and to think that the goodwill and tolerance extended toward progressives will be returned.

This last point is crucial when we consider the history of previous civil rights causes. Earlier progressive campaigns pertaining to issues such as women’s lib, gay rights, and miscegenation had decent libertarian justifications and did not seek to impose much on society save tolerance of alternative life choices. (Social conservatives would likely argue that there were other negative consequences.)

Transgenderism, by contrast, imposes a great deal on American society. It requires us to revisit all questions of sex segregation, everywhere from schools to sports leagues to bathrooms. And note that this is all demanded based on the softer concept, “gender,” as transgenders have all but stopped using the term “transsexual.” They understand that with current technology, sex is immutable.

Since gender is supposedly just about feelings instead of biology, transgender logic would allow any man to claim he is a woman and waltz into a women’s locker room. There is no requirement that he pass for a female, nor is there a requirement that his “feeling” be permanent.


"The Real Danger"

The biggest problem with the transgender agenda is that it erodes our right to our own minds and to our perceptions of reality. A man is not a woman merely because he believes he is one, yet the progressives would have us believe so on pain of social ostracism, loss of employment, and discrimination lawsuits. If we give progressives the right to redefine reality, then we are no better off than Winston in 1984 when he was tortured for refusing to say that 2 and 2 equal 5 (or to continue the Star Trek references, Picard when he was tortured by the Cardassians for refusing to pretend there were five lights. And isn’t it weird that “Cardassian” sounds like “Kardashian?”)

What argument could there possibly be against polygamy, pedophilia, zoophilia, or any range of (currently) unacceptable behaviors? If the legal criteria for a thing’s identity is mere belief on the part of the subject, why shouldn’t a child be allowed to have a romantic relationship with an adult if he believes himself to be an adult as well?

Children are too young to make that choice you say? Then why are there transgender children? Surely you can’t argue that a small child ought to be able to take hormones and change their gender (a decision that will have a massive impact on the rest of their lives), yet cannot consent to sex. If feelings are good enough in one case, then why not the other?

We are not only legitimizing a subculture that will invite massive legal headache and mischief upon our society, we are also establishing a criteria for said legitimacy that is so patently irrational and dangerous as to ensure an endless queue of additional subcultures will come forward seeking the same affirmation from society.

It is perhaps ironic that it is the traditionalists and conservatives that are arguing that there is more to being a woman than copying stereotypical gender norms and looking the part. To say that Bruce Jenner is a woman after a bit of surgery and makeup is degrading to the idea of womanhood. The case of Rachel Dolezal shows that black people are not especially tolerant of whites identifying as black merely because they “feel” they are. Yet there is no strong argument against transracialism if we accept transgenderism.

Given the example of Dolezal, women should be just as insulted at the pretense of someone like Bruce Jenner. Lacking the biology and differing treatment from society that comes from actually being a woman, his claim that he “has always felt like a woman” is absurd on its face. What he really feels is a compulsive desire to play dress up: to make manifest a fetishized ideal of femininity brought about by his own psychological insecurities and a “grass is always greener” presumption about life as a woman.

Transgender people suffer from a pervasive mental illness, and as a result they deserve our sympathy. There is no reason to be violent or mean toward them. Still, we should not be expected to affirm their neuroses anymore than we should affirm the beliefs of a schizophrenic who believes himself to be an alien.

The time for compromise is over. Do not apologize for “misgendering” them, do not feel bad for calling him “Bruce,” do not be afraid to make jokes about them (they say worse things about whites and Christians), and do not ever apologize for rejecting their unscientific hogwash. This noisy .001% of the population is sick and should not be allowed to dictate to the rest of us. When they tell you to move, plant yourself like a tree by the river of truth and tell them: no. You move.

Michigan State Senator Peter Lucido (R-Shelby Township) and unnamed De La Salle Collegiate students #sexist freep.com

LANSING – A state senator is facing widespread criticism and an investigation in the Legislature after telling a female reporter she should stick around at the Capitol because a group of high school students from an all-boys school, touring the Capitol, could “have a lot of fun” with her.

Sen. Peter Lucido, R-Shelby Township, made the comments outside the Senate chamber Tuesday to a reporter from the Michigan Advance, while surrounded by a group of male high school students from De La Salle Collegiate in Warren.

"You’ve heard of De La Salle, right?” the Michigan Advance quoted Lucido as asking reporter Allison Donahue, who is 22.

When Donahue said she had not, Lucido said: “It’s an all-boys school,” adding: “You should hang around — you could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you.”

The students then burst into laughter, the online publication reported.

The Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate announced Wednesday afternoon they have asked the Senate Business Office to investigate whether the incident violated Senate rules related to sexual harassment.

Trump’s Focus on Religious Freedom at the UN Should Lead the Way

The United Nations will host its annual gathering in New York this week. But amid all the hubbub, President Donald Trump is setting aside time to speak on a pressing issue: religious freedom and persecution around the world.

The president will keynote an event Monday called the Global Call to Protect Religious Freedom. This is exactly the right issue to focus on at the U.N.

Today, more than 80% of the world’s population lives under serious restrictions of religious freedom, according to the Pew Research Center. In places like Iran, Burma, and the Chinese province of Xinjiang, religious minorities like Christians, Rohingya Muslims, and Uighur Muslims face threats to their very existence.

Attacks on religious believers fuel social instability, violent conflict, and the deterioration of other human rights.

By calling upon all nations to protect religious freedom, the president will be giving a voice to those who too often lack one. He will also be celebrating a principle that is foundational to peace and security.

His call for religious freedom is particularly needed in light of this year’s attacks on synagogues, mosques, and churches, which have claimed the lives of innocent Jews, Muslims, and Christians. From Pittsburgh and San Diego to Sri Lanka and New Zealand, religious freedom is under threat.

In 1948, the nations of the world pledged in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to protect every human being’s freedom to adopt or change religious belief, and to live out those beliefs in the public square in addition to private life.

The U.N. has sadly strayed from this heritage and, with a new initiative, has become a threat to religious freedom.

Earlier this year, U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres launched a Strategy and Plan of Action on Hate Speech as part of an effort to counter attacks on religious minorities. While well-intended, this effort is the wrong approach and would likely backfire.

The problem with hate speech laws is that the powerful use them to redefine disagreement itself as a form of discrimination. If you hold a certain opinion that powerful elites disagree with, your speech may soon be called “hateful” and “discriminatory.”

By nature, free people disagree with one another in an infinite number of ways. If we are to remain free, we must be able to disagree without fear of punishment. Hate speech laws would quash dissent in violation of liberal norms.

The U.N. should take particular issue with hate speech laws, given its task of supporting the liberal order. Hate speech laws empower governments to censor their citizens when they express their values and beliefs, including religious beliefs. The U.N. ought to openly reject hate speech laws.

In the realm of religion, the stakes are especially high. Abrahamic religions and other faiths offer truth-seekers different and mutually exclusive belief systems regarding the meaning of life, the existence of God, and the nature of good and evil.

Freedom allows the seeker to compare these claims, choose among them, and then order his or her life around them. And such beliefs are found everywhere, in every culture. Protecting their freedom to choose and practice a religion is central to their flourishing.

Unfortunately, the concept of hate speech is all too often wielded to silence comparisons between ideas that are essential to truth-seekers.

For example, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation has actively advanced blasphemy laws at the U.N. under the misleading moniker “defamation of religions.” In Pakistan, the government has used blasphemy laws to punish the weak, religious minorities, and women.

One Catholic mother of five, Asia Bibi, spent years on death row simply because a co-worker with a personal grievance accused her of insulting the prophet Muhammed. Her acquittal sparked nationwide rioting.

Rather than pacifying the hostility, blasphemy laws fomented social intolerance and violence by legitimizing the idea that offensive words cause injury and should be punished—the same notion that defines hate speech.

Although the specifics of the U.N. secretary general’s plan have yet to be fully articulated, the U.N.’s own track record presents a cause for concern.

One impetus for the campaign is the rise of anti-Semitism—a valid concern on its face. Yet resolutions at the U.N. routinely delegitimize, demonize, and apply double standards to the Jewish state of Israel. Political leaders—including some in the U.S.—have recently unleashed old anti-Semitic tropes.

Combating anti-Semitism does not require giving political leaders the power to shut down speech. Government leaders should address the anti-Semitism within their own ranks, and the United Nations should take a hard look at its own anti-Semitic resolutions.

In another disturbing trend at the U.N., a designated official called the independent expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity called for religious and political leaders to be held accountable for speech that the U.N. deems “homophobic or transphobic.”

European governments have already punished pastors and imams for stating that marriage is between a man and a woman. The U.N. should not exacerbate this illiberal trend by treating reasonable disagreements about sexuality and marriage as discrimination.

In 1992, the U.S. Senate ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, a U.N. treaty that binds signatory nations to protect a list of political rights. When ratifying it, the Senate made a reservation to Article 20, which prohibits advocacy of “national, racial, or religious hatred.”

The senators who made that reservation certainly did not condone hatred. But they were discerning. They saw that such a rule could be misused and wielded to restrict freedom. After all, as a nation founded by religious dissenters, Americans know how easily terms like hate can be used by the powerful to limit the speech of the powerless.

As the U.N. meets again, the U.S. should lead the world on a different path. Instead of promoting the misguided idea of hate speech, countries should focus on empowering the oppressed by protecting religious liberty and free speech for all, and by calling upon politicians and U.N. bureaucrats to examine their own biases.

A plaque at the Statue of Liberty is inscribed: “Liberty is the air America breathes…”

Liberty is essential for people around the world to seek knowledge about the truth, and to speak up against those who oppress them based on their beliefs.

Even the most well-intended plans to combat anti-religious attacks through restrictions on speech will be counterproductive. Extinguishing liberty won’t simply suppress vile ideas—it will also snuff out those who speak from their conscience.

Bob #fundie bobstruth.blogspot.ca

[ I was hurt by being raped Bob. I was stabbed to the point of never being able to have children and Bob, let me tell you, it hurt like Hell. It still does. I'm haunted by it every day. I'm haunted by the fact that my husband at the time couldn't face the idea of having sex with me again- I was used goods and useless since I could no longer produce the children we both longed for. I was in agony when I finally had to have a historectomy after years of surgeries, hormone therapy and a period that lasted 7 1/2 months due to the damage done. I was hurt when another woman claimed to have been raped when the truth was she didn't want her boyfriend to know she'd slept with someone else. I'm hurt by the flashbacks of another man's face when I want to make love to my husband. I'm hurt by the nightmares. I'm hurt by the violation of my right to say no- just like the right you have to refuse. I'm hurt by the fact that I was seen simply as a sexual object. I'm hurt by the fact that my own father wouldn't have anything to do with me afterwards- I was suddenly dirty. I'm hurt by the fact that other men I knew decided to have a try since I was so obviously used goods and I no longer deserved respect or courtesy. Men like you Bob. I'm hurt by the fact that my pain and confusion after the rape led me to be very promiscuous for several years- I didn't respect my self or my body any more than the rapist did. Bob, I found your blog through a fathers rights support group you and I are both on. Your comments there frighten and sicken me. Your comments here are contemptable. I support mens rights- I have fought both in the US and the UK for fathers rights to equal access to their children. I have spoken before state legislatures in support of fathers rights. I know men are getting the short end of things right now, but you have gone too far. Yes, sex is a natural act for CONSENTING adults- I wasn't consenting. I did not enjoy being assaulted. I did not enjoy being stabbed. I did not enjoy having my life altered in one instant. I did not enjoy having my right to be a parent taken away from me.
So there, a woman who was hurt by being raped.
You never answered the last writers question Bob- what if it was your wife? Your daugther? Your sister? Your mother? Are they supposed to simply lie back and enjoy an attacker? Are you yourself a predator Bob? Sounds to me like you're trying to justify yourself.
Bob, at this point I'd like to say I wish it had been you instead of me, but I could never wish this kind of pain on anyone.-

Your rant is typical of the femorrhoids who hold onto "my rapist" for years and whine and blame every bad thing they have ever done on five minutes of unwanted sex. You blame years of your promiscuity on "my rapist," how convenient an excuse. Like all feminazi, her crimes are always some man's fault, never the female's fault. And we are supposed to believe that insertion of one man's cock instead of another caused severe physical pain and damage that neither her husbands cock and nor even her years of promiscuity didn't cause. Like all feminazi rants, Ms. Anonymous makes wild claims that just don't add up. Her feelings were hurt she's nursed and fed her hurt feelings for years, using "my rapist" as the evil upon which to blame all her sins and emotional problems. Instead of getting on with her life and accepting her responsibility she blames some man. And now, of course, in typical feminazi fashion, she digresses into ad-hominem insults aimed at Bob for daring to question the standard feminazi propaganda line. She was "stabbed," describing a man's body as a weapon. Her feelings were hurt. She lost control of men and sex. Boo Hoo!

And then she tosses in the usual femorrhoid "mother, daughter, sister" misdirection. Perhaps you can explain to us how my particular mother, sister, or daughter is any different from any other female who want's to get laid and who blames the nearest available man for all her problems? Well, Toots, what if it was my father, brother, uncle, or son's life is destroyed, be sent to a hell hole prison for decades, and become a pariah in any community simply because he boffed some female who suffered no significant injury? As Bob's grandmother advised, rape can be enjoyable, as enjoyable as any other sex. Destroying a man's life over sex is so far beyond rational that only a feminazi hate monger would consider it. No, Toots, Bob's mother, sister, daughter is no more important than Bob's father, brother, son. And Bob's mother, sister, daughter is like other women, they also want to get laid. Don't use that old feminist hate propaganda line about, "your mother, sister, or daughter." It's old tired feminazi hate speech and it's time to stuff it up your arse.

An old wise woman Bob once knew summed it up this way, "Happiness is a sticky crotch."

California Girl #fundie 166.70.44.77

[several posts all in one, she was just too good to miss]

Look, this is not a MYOB matter.

As long as the LGTB (Lesbian, Bay, Transexual Bigender) (oh, and also Heterosexual men who have sex with men, and Cross Dressers) Community continues their legal bully of ANYONE with moral beliefs ---not just the LDS folk---we have a problem.

When the ACLU and other LGTB organizations continue to :
• legally bully photographers into photographing them, even though it violates the photographer's religious beliefs
• leagally bully churches into allowing their gazebos to be used
•deny freedom of speech to the citizens of Canada (anyone who speaks out against homosexual practices in print is fined)
•pass laws like SB777 in CA mandating that children k-12 be immersed in material exposing them to a variety of sexual options

LOOK FOLKS, it isn't just about you anymore. It's starting to be an encroachment on my rights as a parent and my religious freedom.

Stop the passing of laws that infringe upon my rights.

I met someone who was gay recently and he agrees with me. If this radical infringement does not stop, it can only hurt the LGTB community.

[in a later post]

The solution, of course, is to just be angry with anyone with moral or religious thought. You are as bigoted as the bigots you point your finger at.

As for evolution, I don't have a problem with it being taught. Charles Darwin was a brilliant scientist.

As for global warming, check out Google Video's "The Great Global Warming Swindle" which interviews only a sampling of the thousands of climatologists who do not agree with the political hypermania called global warming. Be careful when you say "widely accepted by the scientific community" Because that is not the case.

Science is a process, but it flourishes in a free community, in which scientists are allowed to have a free exchange of ideas and share their data with each other. If they are politically gagged, the truth cannot be derived.

Same with the ongoing discussion as to weather the re-defining of centuries-old and millenia-old marriage by four activist judges in CA is a wise idea.

[one more nugget of brilliance]

You are wrong about that. It's not just us ignorant, Bible-totin' folk that embrace that oh-so-outdated and archaic notion of heterosexual marriage. It's in every culture since the dawn of time, and redefining it now to suit our own urges and proclivities is simply a short-winded experiment.

Prayer Team #fundie frc.org

Religious oppression and persecution associated with legalized same-sex "marriage" (SSM) is already underway, and will only increase. Maryland, Maine and Washington state voters affirmed SSM on Election Day. Minnesota rejected a traditional marriage amendment and legislators are acting swiftly to legalize SSM there. Nine states - MD, ME and WA, plus CT, IA, MA, NH, NY, VT and Washington, DC, now allow SSM. While their laws masquerade as religion friendly (pastors are exempted from any requirement to perform same-sex "marriages"), Christian judges and justices of the peace are not exempted. Nor are Christian clerks who must issue "marriage" licenses; notaries who must notarize legal documents, photographers, florists, bakers, wedding venue operators, marriage counselors, lawyers, homeowners who wish to rent out their homes - all of whom will be required to accept, honor and serve same-sex "married" couples without objection - or face lawsuits and fines.

And what about churches? What will your church do when a "married" same-sex couple demands recognition? Have your pastor and church prepared you for such an eventuality? Will you stand on biblical truth? How about you and your family, when your child comes home from school talking about what he or she is being taught? If you as a business owner or employee are told to be complicit in supporting a same-sex "marriage," will you stand for your faith and close your business or ministry, or lose your job? Catholic Charities in Massachusetts closed their 100+ year old adoption ministry rather than comply with the law requiring them to place adoptive children with homosexual couples. These laws are splitting homes, churches, denominations and America, but the worst is ahead. Each of us must decide whether we will obey God or man (Acts 5:29).

WE WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO BELIEVE

The vicious bullying of Christians by “LGBT” activists has reached a tipping point. The end game is no longer disguised and it’s this: Christians will be prohibited from exercising their First Amendment constitutional rights to object to homosexual behavior or gender confusion. That is, if the activists get their way.

In other words, the Human Rights Campaign, GLSEN, GLAAD and other “LGBT” bullies will tell us what we can and can’t believe.

The Gospel According to “Gay” is here, or so they hope. But in spite of the pending Supreme Court review of same sex so-called ‘marriage’ followed by a possible tsunami of homosexual tyranny, the rainbow radicals are stunned by a bit of push-back. They fret that their lavish funding and incessant thuggery are not producing the expected result, which is the easy overthrow of Judeo-Christian moral values in America.

Take for instance, the Archdiocese of San Francisco, instructing its school faculty to be respectful of the tenets of Catholicism both on and off the job. Don’t promote abortion or homosexuality as marriage, for instance, even on social media.

But San Francisco’s city government and “gay” community are not known for logic and respect. Outrage has greeted the notion that any church would require those in its employ not to bite the hand that feeds them. Bay Area “gays” want to dictate to the Archdiocese what it can and can’t believe, thank you very much, and the controversy may be headed to court.

That’s what they think of the First Amendment.

A number of cities and states are getting wise to the fascism of pro-homosexual public policies. Sexual orientation and gender identity provisions in discrimination law (SO/GI measures) are being turned back. Americans are figuring out that these laws do “protect“ homosexuals and transvestites, but only from opinions they don’t like while handing them a club to bash people of faith. As people lose jobs simply for having the wrong opinion, and small businesses close after months of threats and leftist harassment, the public understands what is really happening: tolerance is a one-way street for sexual anarchists.

For faithful Christians, there will be no mercy.

Americans don’t agree. A new poll published by Family Research Council and the National Religious Broadcasters found that a whopping 81% agreed with this statement: “Government should leave people free to follow their beliefs about marriage as they live their daily lives at work and in the way they run their businesses.”

In the wake of an absurd state regulation passed in Minnesota for schools, a parents’ group commissioned a survey of voters and 90% agreed that students should have privacy rights for bathrooms, locker rooms and showers, including separate male/female facilities. A bill has just been introduced in both the MN House and Senate, called the “Student Safety and Physical Privacy Act” to mandate separate facilities for biological males and females and to overturn the recent school sports’ transgender policy.

In Arkansas, SB 202 just passed the legislature and was allowed to become law by the governor. It prohibits amending local discrimination policies with new categories, and that means “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” can’t be added.

This blow to “LGBT” dreams of glory follows on the heels of a successful December referendum in Fayetteville repealing a local transgender bill. The repeal effort featured intense lobbying by Michelle Duggar of the 19 Kids and Counting cable show.

And then in a stunning victory for freedom, an SO/GI ordinance just failed in Charlotte, North Carolina by a 6-5 vote. The measure would have prevented faith-based objections — i.e., no First Amendment religious rights.

The Human Rights Campaign spent a lot of time and money on the Charlotte bill and they are furious at the rebuff. They hoped to pass a bill with no faith exemptions. HRC calls religious freedom proposals “license to discriminate” bills, referring to proponents as the “anti-LGBT rump.” A paper HRC published called “Chipping Away at Equality” predicts these bills would allow Christians to turn away divorcees, Jewish people and biracial couples from businesses, and that EMTs would refuse to treat dying transgender patients using these bills as an excuse. No examples where such actions have occurred were provided.

And the roll-back doesn’t end there. Kansas Governor Sam Brownback by executive order rescinded a SO/GI discrimination order put in place by former governor Kathleen Sebelius.

And in Georgia, where Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran was fired for expressing his traditional Christian moral beliefs in a book, a bill is moving through the legislature to secure First Amendment rights in such cases. The radical group Get Equal spread misinformation in an email blast about the Georgia bill, alleging that it “…would make it legal for anyone citing a ‘sincerely-held religious belief’ to have a free pass to discriminate against just about anyone — LGBTQ or not.”

A Florida bill has been introduced that would restrict restrooms to people of the same biological sex. A new Michigan bill would allow adoption organizations to exercise religious freedom. There’s a similar bill in Congress, the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, sponsored by Congressman Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) and Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wy.)

And of course, we can’t forget the current Jezebel of “LGBT” tyranny: Houston mayor Annise Parker in her ongoing fight to deny citizens a vote on a local “LGBT” measure. A city clerk affirmed that more than enough signatures had been received to put the ordinance to a vote of the people, but the mayor’s shady maneuvers held it up. A judge rejected her plea to avoid a jury trial brought by local pastors whose sermons she subpoenaed in a thinly-disguised intimidation tactic.

One piece of legislation some are hailing as good news is actually the opposite: a Utah bill barring “LGBT” discrimination was supported by the LDS Church because it included religious exemptions. But it’s a trap. The bill language contains subjective “weasel” clauses allowing employers to make final determination about free speech, which qualifies “…unless the expression… is in direct conflict with the essential business-related interests of the employer.”

Welcome to the land of major loopholes. Many companies are already in bed with the “gay” lobby or afraid to limit their demands, so this language hands the “LGBT” bullies a tool to render the faith exemption meaningless.

And why is any church endorsing homosexual and “transgender” lifestyles anyway? That is what SO/GI “non-discrimination” bills do. They don’t just secure a right to an apartment or a job. It’s the right to have an apartment as an open and proud homosexual or transvestite (even if your landlady is a single Christian widow who believes this lifestyle is a sin). It’s getting a position while proudly proclaiming private deviant practices, even if co-workers believe marriage is male/female. Dare to express traditional values on the job and any Christian is guilty of harassment. These folks will have their lawyers all over you.

There is no respect in Scripture for these sins, but quite the opposite: our Lord calls homosexual sex an “abomination.” I don’t know how a church somehow justifies a “right” to housing and employment solely based on a sin identity.

The good news is that lots of Americans do understand and are standing up for what we believe and what our Constitution guarantees. The Lord Jesus Christ has framed the parameters of our faith and no wicked deceit the lavender lobby devises will every change that.

Michele Bachmann #fundie wonkroom.thinkprogress.org

[Bachmann recalls her reaction to the 2003 Mass. Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage.]

When that happened, I heard the news on my local Christian radio station in Minneapolis, St. Paul and I was devastated. And I took a walk and I just went to prayer and I said Lord, what would you have me do in the Minnesota state senate? And just through prayer I knew that I was to introduce the marriage amendment in Minnesota.

WeRe Bank #conspiracy #crackpot #mammon werebank.co.uk

As we approach Spring 2017, ReMovement, in association with WeRe Bank, is proud to introduce “The Lazarus Taxon”. Simply put this means the reintroduction of an idea, within a genetic lineage, which was thought to be extinct BUT then “mysteriously” Re-Occurs, is Re-Born or is Re-Instated – seemingly back from the dead, so to say!

“The criminal and unlawful position held by The European Central Bank has been terminated as of immediate effect. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York,The Exchange Stabilization Fund, The Bank of England and the Bank for International Settlements have all been stood down too. WeRe Bank has assumed the ReSponsibility for the ReStoration of the peoples Sovereign Money supply back to them, and for freeing world populations from debt slavery and become The Central Banks Central Bank. It has ReTurned the money supply back to the people. It introduces several important steps from January 2017 – QEP – Quantitive Easing for the People, TARP2 – Toxic Asset RePurchase for the People, and the introduction of a fully spendable world/planetary monetary unit called the ReSDR – A RePlacement of the IMF’s intended One World Currency.”

“WeRe Bank is acting under Divine Spiritual Mandate. It is now issuing the PlanetRe Sovereign Unit of Money– (PReSUM) – to prevent you from suffering undue distress, harm and financial trauma throughout the imminent financial, currency market collapse and demonetization saga, engineered for you by the banking cartels and globalist elites, scheduled to take place sometime between 2018/2020, though it could be triggered sooner.”


WeRe Bank offers four injunctions for members to now adopt as we move forward and they are enunciated simply as follows:

– LET’S OUTLAW FINANCIAL SLAVERY-

Under the banner headline of:

“Aren’t you fed up with the constant hassle of never having enough of anything left at the end of every month?”

“Aren’t you “tired of being tired” due to too much work, zero hours contracts, not enough time, constant threats, coercion, duress, bullying  and the use of force, harassment and intimidation to extract money from you by the greedy privateer corporations, police authorities, speed camera and parking agencies, taxation authorities, local councils, bailiffs, debt collection agencies and Court Enforcement Officers and HMRC or IRS?”

“Are you not “fed up to the back-teeth” with the constant lies of politicians and governmental “juiced in” politicians assuring you that there “just isn’t any more money for the public services, the NHS, the roads, schools, students, or you and your family” when there sure as hell seems to be no shortage for “them and theirs” and their HS2 vanity projects?”

Well, if you ARE fed up with all this – we have some very good news for you!

WeRe Bank offers not only non-scrip, monetary unit of account or cheque book money but hopefully,as from Summer 2017, scrip as well as a card payment facility. It is, a provider  of finality of settlement under common law on the spot of time for all private, PUBLIC and commercial transactions.

WeRe Bank does NOT recognise as an OBLIGATION the PUBLIC side of any liability created against you since in 1931 in the United Kingdom, 1933 in the United States of America and globally from 22 July 1944 – when all global inhabitants and sovereign beings had the ability to pay in lawful money taken from them by various bankster invasions based on the way that the money supply had been used historically.

From this point on you were FORCED from the private side to THE PUBLIC SIDE OF THE ACCOUNT and made to accept a fiat currency created by criminal banksters using Fractional Reserve Lending, usurious practices, deception, guile and trickery to steal the energy wealth from you.

You were convinced to accept worthless money, the CENTRAL BANKERS PROMISSORY NOTE for the promise/lie of further wealth somewhere, somehow and at some time in the future in return for going without in the moment of now.

SECURITY

WeRe Bank has infinite energy supply based on access to the Universal Supply of Energy [USE]

WeRe Bank will accept a promissory note from you to help you begin to understand the simplicity of a system of monetary exchange whereby you can trade energy (your own freely and independently given) for goods and services. In effect all that WeRe bank does is allow you to become your OWN BANKER in return for a membership fee to ReMovement. It is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY THAT YOU JOIN WITH US TO DO IT, though you may ask: “Well, why don’t I just do it then myself?”

The reason you MUST JOIN through us is that on your own you will be scooped up and destroyed by the forces reigned against you – after all STRENGTH IS UNITY AND UNITY IS STRENGTH.

By exposing the trickery, deceit and lies which have been sold to you – as a star/shetar

So   ZIONIST BANKERS = PHANTOM ENERGY SUPPLY VAMPIRES = GOVERNMENT = CORPORATIONS AND MILITARY = MILITARY – MASONS – MONARCHY – MAYHEM – MONEY – M PEOPLE – MURDER

There is natural law and there is corporate law. There is private law and there is Administrative Law. The trick is here – which jurisdiction do they have you in? For example do you know what the word “ground” means? You talk of buying a piece of “ground” or having “feet on the ground” or entering in Germany, Austria and France your land or property real estate into or onto the “Ground Book” (Grund Buch). Well, ground is “land under water!” as in to “run aground in a ship. So the next time you hear someone talking of “ground rent” etc then you know you are firmly under water and NOT on the Land you thought!

There is the International Law of The Sea and The National Law of The Land. All of us have been tricked into performing under “spurious contractual laws” via The Laws of The Sea, Maritime Law and Admiralty Law – These are war powers acts and are for pirates.

Your natural state of being-ness is of man/woman “on the land under common natural law.” This is a law of sovereignty. It is NOT a law of democracy or majority or mob rule – for if it was and 51% of your community decided they wanted to eat you then they could, could they not! And justify it too!

All corporations – Including for sure The Police, HM Revenue and Customs, HM Courts and Tribunals Services, The Law Society and The Government and The Local Authorities are all culpable of the following offences:

Any name written in CAPITALS CAN BE ONLY ONE OF TWO THINGS

A CORPORATION or

JOHN ADAMS R.I.P = A dead man’s (e)state

So – If anyone tries to force you off land and onto the High Seas then this is called inland piracy or “press ganging” and is a criminal offence as is “personage and “barratry!” Press-ganging is slavery and is banned by all signatories to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 4 – With the caveat of “beware of referring to yourself as or classing yourself as a “person.”

Article 6 stipulates that: “Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law”.

Ergo, which also means that “if you do NOT wish to exercise said right then you can remain a “non-person!” “non-resident alien”. This means that you can opt in or opt out – the only difference is that one requires AWARENESS – the other IGNORANCE! Most people have opted in and not even realized it!”

Have you also been tricked into accepting “services” from “privateer corporations” acting under licence from The Crown (Rome) and The crown (Monarchy) via The Global Trust? If you are accepting any of the services mentioned below AND PAYING FOR THEM then the answer is almost certainly “Yes!”

This GLOBALIST TRUST operates the following services:

Postal Services via Postal Districts and Post Offices – Law of the Sea – Roads all leading from the ports to your door – implied right of access, hence Admiralty Law and Law Merchant. No taxed or non-insured cars on the roads are seized under Admiralty Law

Legal Services of the various Bar Associations  especially Court buildings – Located when possible near to canals, rivers or on streets with such names as Canal Street, Riverside Road.

Banking and Shipping Insurance Services and Standards via Banking & Insurance Associations

Domestic Police Services – In effect corporate security men

Medical and Welfare Services

Insurance Services

Defence and Treaty Alliance Services

The PlanetReServe© Currency of Choice for all free and sovereign beings budded on this planet and payable for work at Re12 per hour – ReTime = Exchangeable for food, goods and services anywhere, anytime and by anyone! The absolute priority now is for all staple food products, utilities and accommodation as well as all additional living expenses be paid for with Re. Since the beginning of 2017 there are now two identifiable monetary units within WeRe Bank – One in the ReSDR payable and receivable in £/$/€/CHF and the second is ReWork earned at Re12.00 the hour. Both are called Re. On your account they are cloured ReSDR in green and ReWork in red

It is now time, following the recent attempts to derail this most needed humanitarian project, to begin the 3rd phase of change. These phases are:

Was the introduction of a chequing facility and DEBT ERADICATION SERVICE PREDICATED UPON THE ABSOLUTE AND UNQUESTIONABLE – (IN ANY COMMERCIAL, LAWFUL OR BANKING ARENA ON THIS PLANET) – OF THE VALIDITY OF THE PROMISSORY NOTE TO ZERO DEBT – in order to show people that they WeRe the bankers themselves and it was THEY who created the money supply and not a bank. It was there also to show the nature of the extent of dishonour within the system of money supply, the collusion by the banking cartel as well as the “system of financial apartheid” levelled at anyone or thing expounding “change for the better!”

This prompted the question:

“With so many people in debt, with so many starving and with such inequity in this world – why on earth would the exponents of such as system mouth continually that it was the only system available and the “choice of the people?”

Why would anyone listen to these rogues? Why never enough for us but excess for them? Well, they continued to ReFuse to listen and so we moved onto….

Was the introduction of the LLT – Lawful and Legal Tender in order to show that with the YALTA 1, YALTA 2 and YALTA BITESIZE documents that there was no doubt at all who was paying the planetary bills and who was the “Guarantor and Surety” for all the debt incurred by rogue moneyed interests upon the planet. As expected they continued to ReFuse to listen and so that FUSE has now been lit for…

Is the introduction of The PlanetRePayment©Card as well as WeRe Bank Notes as SCRIP and the full commercial acceptability and announcement of the absolute necessity to now begin to trade in Re and ReSDR. The absolute priority now is for all staple food products, utilities and accommodation as well as all additional living expenses be paid for with Re/ReSDR.

WeRe Bank now trades in Sterling, Dollar and Euro etc on the PUBLIC SIDE of the Trust but in Re on the private sovereign side. This allows for immense flexibility.

The UNIT of MONETARY VALUE is the Re and the ReSDR.
ReSDR 1.00 is equal to 1.00 £/$/€/CHF Fiat for the purposes of the card transactions.


However, you should note that we DO NOT exchange fiat currency for ReSDR – WE TRANSMUTE IT! There is no correspondence between our accepting your fiat currency and the issuing of ReSDR. The issuance of ReSDR is TOTALLY AT OUR DISCRETION AND NOT DEPENDENT UPON OR A FUNCTION OF YOUR SUPPLYING CASH/NOTES/OR VALUE TO WeRe Bank.

As ReSDR is NOT currently recognised as a monetary unit by any of the Central Banks – it is therefore immune from taxation and financial surveillance by the “other side” – the Zionist corporatocracy and banking state cartels.

We would suggest that you place a minimum onto your card of ReSDR120.00. This will currently cost you €/£/$100.00. With 20% shop discount then this will mean at least 40% increase in spending power JUST BY CHOOSING TO SPEND IN ReSDR as opposed to Euro (€) £/$/€/CHF etc
When you ReLoad your card you will informed what the current TRANSMUTATION OFFERED RATE (TOR) is. January/February 2017 it will remain at 1:1


ReWork 12 is paid to ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME for 1 hour of work.

Re1 = 5 minutes. It is totally “fungible”, fair, transparent, equitable and equal to and for all people!” – ReGardless.

So whether you are a doctor, dentist, mechanic, vet or engineer Re12 covers it all. Those who protest that this is, “Not enough!” then this argument can be easily countermanded by those in the regions of the world, the majority in fact, where 80% of the people on this planet exist on less than $2 per day. They will provide a very good counter argument against those in the “effluent” West who mouth: “Give us more! Give them less!”

Re has been declared a ReServe Currency Unit of Choice for all freedom seeking men, women in and associated movements worldwide. The nature of fear, control, superstition, ignorance and lack must now be brought to an end.

The Bridge Zone Project provides the PlanetRe payment mechanics of a card loaded with Re to trade planet wide. This allows you to walk the bridge to the other side where freedom awaits..

CARDS AND NOTES

LLT’s AND CHEQUES ARE SERVING THEIR PURPOSE – CONTINUE TO USE THEM CONTINUE TO TRUST IN THEM

These have served us well and accomplished exactly what was intended BUT they are soon to be supplanted with SCRIP IN FULL DENOMINATIONS of Re 3, 6, 12, 24 and 60 notes – as Lawful Tender.

The LLT Notes are already in the hands of many people on a 25 serial notebook. As the banks have refused to clear many of the notes – we now move to CLEARING OUR OWN FUNDS VIA YOUR OWN ACCOUNTS WITHOUT THE NECESSARY REFERENCE TO ANY OUTSIDE AGENCY, BANKER OR 3RD PARTY.

From henceforth, all LLT’s, notes and PlanetRePayment© Card transactions will be INSTANTLY CLEARED AND CREDITED following receipt of transaction details.

We encourage you to ensure ALL PAYEES are members to facilitate the ease of clearing.

TERMINALS – ACCESS – LAP TOP – USB

The WeRe Bank App for ReTailers is ready. By early 2017 there will be a customer/member app, also available.

We provide a list of people and businesses prepared to accept the PlanetReServe currency – The Re and ReSDR. WeRe Bank is an energy conduit – it is a method of opening up another kind or fair and transparent energy usage.

FULL TRANSPARENCY

Benefits: You take action where action can be taken

Bradlee Dean #fundie minnesotaindependent.com

Minnesota House Republicans invited anti-gay preacher Bradlee Dean of You Can Run But You Cannot Hide to give the morning prayer. The prayer was so offensive to many legislators that House leadership brought in the chaplain to redo the prayer.

Dean has made many controversial statements as pastor of You Can Run, including advocating the incarceration of gays and lesbians, that the LGBT community is trying to usher in Sharia law in Minnesota, that gay men molest an average of 117 children “before they get caught,” and that Muslim nations that execute gays are more moral than American Christians. His prayer on Friday touched off a firestorm at the Capitol as the LGBT community was rallying outside the House chambers against a proposed anti-gay marriage amendment.

Dean said during his prayer, “I know this is a nondenominational chamber,” he said listing off a litany of Christian denominations and leaving off any mention of Judaism.

Then he took a dig at President Obama, insinuating that he is not a Christian. “The head of the denomination is Jesus as every president up until 2008 has acknowledged, in Jesus name.”

Rep. Terry Morrow, DFL-St. Peter, rose to speak out against the prayer. At first he was at a loss for words.

“I want to express a deep level of concern about what occurred in this chamber this morning,” he said.

He said the fact that the House restarted the prayer was an indication that something went wrong. “I take that as an acknowledgment that there is legitimate cause for deep concern among the members and the staff and among the people of Minnesota.”

Today hope was crushed by the words of a single speaker,” he said. “Mr. Speaker, I do trust and hope that we understand the gravity and the severity of the prayer that has been given to the people within this chamber and out.”

“I’m shaking right now because I’m mad,” he concluded. “This cannot happen again.”

Already this year, in the Minnesota Senate, Republicans invited a pastor who gave a sectarian prayer that caused concern among that chamber’s non-Christian members.

time to throw those supreme court judges off the bench and yes we the people have that power. the lie of supreme court judges cant be removed from their jobs unless their retire or die is a liberal lie. Our forefathers never give them that power . that's too much power for any one part of the government to have, they never gave Obama the power of executive privilege/excutive order either that's too much power as well. Time we stand up and demand the removal of these traitors, thieves and immoral narcissistic people from power and stop this death march they have this nation on before we suffer the same exact fate as the roman empire and Sodom and Gomorrah which all three were destroyed due to the rampant immorality . To those clowns who call themselves preachers who spew this B.S. known as social justice crap. Who spew god a loving god he doesn't punish. You best pull your head out of Obama's butt and reread the bible. the food in noahs time, Sodom and Gomorrah are just a few samples of god punishing us for our sins and immorality. and these natural disasters today are not caused by the phony liberal b.s. scam/lie of Global warming it's called punishment for our immorality. and allowing it to be treated as its the right thing when its the wrong thing . I foresee an increase in natural disasters 5 fold due to just this unconstitutional outcome. How can they say Doma Discriminates when Marriage is not a right its a sacred privilege given only by god to between 1 natural born man and 1 natural born female and no other combination is allowed in fact all other combinations are an abomination in god's eyes. Supreme court just like Monsanto thinks they are gods so they can go around changing what god created. Well there's consequences for that. Doma Will Return and everyone of those supreme court judges who ruled against it will be removed from their job period.

Nolan West #racist rawstory.com

The Party of Lincoln may soon have someone who hates Abraham Lincoln representing it in the Minnesota House of Representatives.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Nolan West, a Republican legislative aide who is now running for an open seat in the Minnesota state legislature, has apologized for posting several messages on Facebook that praised the Confederacy and trashed Abraham Lincoln.

“I apologize for posting insensitive material,” West said in an e-mail to the Star Tribune. “I’ve taken those posts down because they do not reflect who I am or what I believe.”

And it seems there was a lot of insensitive material.

For example, to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederate President Jefferson Davis resigning from his post in the U.S. Senate, West posted a message attacking Lincoln as “the single worst president this country has ever seen.”

West even posted a message that read, “IT’S LYNCHING TIME!” on the eve of President Obama’s election in 2008.

The Star Tribune also notes that West “posted derogatory comments about women and gays,” which shouldn’t be surprising — after all, if you’re the kind of person who celebrates the existence of a slave state, you’re probably not all that sensitive to women’s and LGBT issues either.

West has since removed the posts from his Facebook feed, although he has signaled no willingness to drop out of the race at this point.

Edmund Connelly #racist theoccidentalobserver.net

Earlier this year, I was musing over the question of whether Jews ever feel guilt or remorse when they blatantly insult, injure or kill goyim. I had to conclude, based on my research and observations, that the answer was no. Invariably, they possess mental traits that allow them to project their guilty behavior onto the actual victim, and in turn conceive of themselves as the victims. [...]

No sooner had I reached this conclusion than E. Michael Jones in his magazine Culture Wars called my views into question. In the April issue, he published his essay “Jewish Monsters from the Jewish Id.” The essay was partially based on his 2000 book Monsters from the Id: The Rise of Horror in Fiction and Film. The book discussed how the sexual liberation crowd “tried to drive religious and moral nature out with a pitchfork, but found that nature only returned through the back door, in the form of a monster.” In other words, as one review summarized with respect to sexual license and its attendant abortion problem, “Horror, says Jones, comes from a guilty conscience that won’t admit that it’s done anything wrong — and horror stories reveal the true nature of that guilt again and again.”

Jones combined this with his remarkable 2008 book The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit and Its Impact on World History to argue that the 2009 film The Unborn “is about Jewish guilt over abortion manifesting itself as fetal monsters.”

[...] The crucial Jewish role in getting abortion legalized in America, Jones argues, plus the high rates at which Jews abort their own children,

explains the need to bring up Auschwitz, because the function of the holocaust is to absolve all Jews from any guilt they may have incurred by violating the moral law. Auschwitz is the totem which calms the troubled Jewish conscience by assuring the Jew that he is the eternal victim, and, as such, incapable of incurring guilt as the perpetrator of some immoral act like, say, killing a fellow Jew in the womb of his mother.

More pertinently yet, Jones sees that last December’s Israeli massacre of innocent Palestinian women and children also inevitably creates subconscious Jewish guilt.

[...]

It is a common Jewish personality trait that we cannot ignore because so many Jews direct so much hatred toward so many of us non-Jews. Worse, they have the power to turn that hatred into real harm (and to subsequently protect themselves from their actions).

As just another taste of this process, peruse Hervé Ryssen’s characterization of Jewish intellectuals’ contempt for non-Jews in this piece:

It is not enough for these intellectuals to talk nonsense, to lull us with “human rights,” to bind us with repressive laws, and to inject us with alien cultural poisons. They also have to pour into our ears their contempt for our old cultures. But this contempt does not seem to fully satisfy their thirst for revenge. They must also insult us and spit in our faces: “ignoramuses, xenophobes, paranoiacs, morons, lunatics, etc.” . . .

And I will not recount the innumerable films in which the cosmopolitan scriptwriters take their revenge against Christian civilization and the white man in general. It seems obvious to me, regarding all this logorrhea, that these people hate us. It could not be any more obvious if they wore flashing neon signs on their heads.

[...]

Remember, ideas have consequences. And the good Professor Goldhagen seems to have a fixation on genocide. That worries me, given that he is plugged into the ruling circles of the United States.

But in some distant future, there might be hope. As evidenced by his own books, Goldhagen opts to collectively blame Germans, to collectively blame Catholics, to collectively blame many other groups for their trespasses. What if Jews were ever to collectively repent for their considerable trespasses against others these last three-four millennia? To repent for their financial, political, and most of all lethal crimes against humanity? Maybe then the projection and repression might stop and the world would become a far better place.

Bob Frey #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Bob Frey, a Michele Bachmann ally and Republican candidate for the Minnesota House of Representatives, wants public schools to teach students that humans and dinosaurs lived together.

Frey, who also has his own bizarre theory about HIV/AIDS, alleged in a 2004 appearance before the Minnesota State Senate Education Committee that the fossil record proves that “dinosaurs have always lived with man,” and such “real science” should be taught in public schools.

[...]

Bluestem Prairie also reports that Frey used to run a group called Creation Science Seminars, which claimed that teaching Creationism would reduce the rate of violence that the theory of evolution had apparently brought upon communities.

Marco Rubio #fundie politico.com

Rubio: No abortions for Zika-infected women

Sen. Marco Rubio said Saturday that he doesn’t believe a pregnant woman infected with the Zika virus should have the right to an abortion — even if she had reason to believe the child would be born with severe microcephaly.

"I understand a lot of people disagree with my view – but I believe that all human life is worthy of protection of our laws. And when you present it in the context of Zika or any prenatal condition, it’s a difficult question and a hard one," Rubio told POLITICO.

"But if I’m going to err, I’m going to err on the side of life."

Abortion and Zika became politically intertwined in June when Congress failed to pass a Zika-relief bill, in part due to a dispute over Planned Parenthood. Zika has started to spread quickly through Florida, which now has 422 cases -- more than any other state in the nation -- and it has alarmed families and health experts because the virus has been linked to severe microcephaly in infants born to some infected pregnant women.

“We’ve never before had a mosquito-borne disease that can cause a birth defect,” the Centers for Disease Control’s director, Tom Friedan, said Thursday in Doral after touring Wynwood. “That’s why we take it so seriously. The key is to protect pregnant women.”

Without prompting, Rubio acknowledged the challenges of the birth defects that result from Zika.

"Obviously, microcephaly is a terrible prenatal condition that kids are born with. And when they are, it’s a lifetime of difficulties," he said. "So I get it. I’m not pretending to you that that’s an easy question you asked me. But I’m prolife. And I’m strongly prolife. I believe all human life should be protected by our law, irrespective of the circumstances or condition of that life."

Rubio has taken a leadership role in trying to prevent the spread of Zika. He became the first Republican to co-sponsor President Obama’s $1.9 billion Zika-fighting legislation, which was watered down by House Republicans after it passed the Senate. The legislation ultimately failed. Rubio points out that he voted for every Zika bill he could.

The campaign of one of his Democratic Senate opponents, U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, pointed to that vote and said in a press release Saturday that “Rubio exploited the Zika crisis to attack women’s health funding and Planned Parenthood.”

A staunch pro-life conservative, Rubio’s position on abortion has been consistent in the Florida Legislature, U.S. Senate and the campaign trail. A year ago, for instance, Rubio said on the presidential debate stage that he was opposed to abortion in cases of rape or incest. Murphy’s campaign called that position “extreme and offensive.”

Rubio took issue with the Democrats’ raising Planned Parenthood because, he said, “the words Planned Parenthood don’t appear anywhere in the law.”

Rubio said the bill limited federal Zika money to “community health centers and hospitals, basically Medicare providers… with limited funds, you wanted to ensure those funds were going to facilities in every community in the state. In the end, I voted for laws that don’t have that condition there, either. I just want the money to start flowing.”

Rubio faulted Democrats for not passing the scaled-back legislation.

“The Planned Parenthood angle is something they basically made up to have a political reason not to pass Zika so they can come back in August and campaign on it,“ he said. “That’s what I mean by political volleyball. Both sides have played that game. I would have preferred the House just passed a clean funding bill and I’ll vote for that if it comes out.”

Kentucky GOP #fundie rawstory.com

For the fitst time in 95 years, Republicans took total control over the Kentucky state government this week and immediately moved to strip rights from women and workers.

According to the Courier-Journal, a 20-week abortion ban is one of the first 11 bills being considered by the GOP-controlled legislature.

Republican Senate President Robert Stivers told reporters on Tuesday that women relinquished their reproductive “choice” by getting pregnant in the first place.

Stivers said that a woman had a “choice early on to make a decision to conceive or not conceive.”

“But once conception starts, there becomes another life involved. And the legislature has its ability to control how that life may proceed or how it would be terminated,” he stated.

Republican House Speaker Jeff Hoover said that there was “overwhelming sentiment” in favor of the 20-week abortion ban. He predicted that it would be passed by the legislature by the end of the week.

“Legislation about bans like this pose a serious threat because they ignore women’s health needs in individual circumstances,” ACLU of Kentucky spokesperson Amber Duke told the Courier-Journal. “We believe that women deserve dignity and should have the right to make personal and private medical decisions without interference from politicians.”

Republicans were also expected to pass right-to-work legislation this week that would ban union membership as a requirement for employment.

“They are pursuing a policy to penalize unions,” Kentucky AFL-CIO President Bill Londrigan warned. “It’s a low road to economic development that will actually end up costing all Kentucky workers in the form of lower wages.”

Atavisionary #sexist atavisionary.com

Everyone is supposed to get a degree, but it is especially important for women and minorities to get them. Currently, this bubble consists of 1.3 trillion dollars in debt and rising. Propaganda is also mainly focused on taking advantage of the demographics who, with less innate critical faculties, are least likely to get through the system unharmed. As much as low-IQ minorities and women get on my nerves, I do not approve of those taking advantage of their deficits for personal gain.

...

One thing I would like to point out about this interaction is the sex of the two interviewees. While right leaning women and left leaning men are common enough as to not be remarkable, it is worth remembering that there are somewhat strong sex differences in political attitudes, among other things, over the population. Men more naturally fall into right-wing and/or libertarian positions whereas women more often fall into progressive, paternalistic, and big government positions. Evolutionary psychology suggests that women have preferences for paternalistic, big government because in the ancestral environment lack of security was almost always their biggest trouble. They had to rely on males almost entirely for physical security and also had to depend substantially on males for resource security (i.e. food). Given any say in how society is structured, women will tend to choose arrangements which appear to provide that security regardless of circumstance. This pattern is observable by looking at the increases in government spending in various jurisdictions immediately after women’s suffrage was approved. A number of US states enacted women’s voting at different times prior to the 19th amendment and in every instance taxes and expenditures increased substantially.

...

Proof enough that attractive women like our bimbo are best seen and not heard.

However, physical and resource security doesn’t just arise out of the ether. It has to come from somewhere and has to be paid for by someone. As usual, it is men who had to bear this increased burden. This resource transfer is largely equivalent to state-enforced cuckoldry so as the level of this burden increases so does the number of men who opt-out of the system entirely. This explains to some extent why more men tend towards less government and less taxes. It isn’t that men don’t value security, its that they know the costs of ensuring the security of the incompetent will disproportionately fall on them and thus lower their own prosperity and happiness. It also ultimately lowers evolutionary fitness for the successful which many may be able to sense at some level.

While it is useful to be aware of possible evolutionary explanations for the poor political choices of women, that doesn’t mean directly perceived advantages should be ignored (or be considered mutually exclusive). As I mentioned in a recent article, women tend to incur more debt to get a degree (and in general), and more often choose degrees which are less likely to confer employable skills:

...

With this pattern of economic and educational foolishness, it is not hard to understand why many women favor more wealth transfers with respect to student loans. More wealth transfers here softens or eliminates the financial costs of poor decisions on the part of the poor little ladies. It is hardly surprising when a group of people selfishly vote in their own interests regardless of the costs to others or society as a whole. However, as I have mentioned before more than once, this only works in the short term. Eventually the guys figure out the scam and once the game is up they withhold their resources as much as possible, which can turn out to be quite a bit. The ironic result of these policies that ostensibly increase female well-being is that there will be substantially less resource and physical security for everyone.

As a closing note, I do agree that to a substantial extent it is quite unfair to dupe naive kids into taking on massive amounts of non-dischargable debt for the often worthless product that is today’s university degree. Especially for women who can’t really be expected to have the same level of critical thinking skills as men for biological reasons. If these loans are to be forgiven, I think the best way to handle the cost is to take as much of the money as possible from selling off the property and endowments of the universities. Considering the holdings of universities this could easily be worth tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars. Since the universities were the ones actively encouraging this fraud, they should be the ones expected to make things right. Not to mention this would largely destroy the institutions most responsible for propagating the far-left narratives destroying our civilization. No reason not to kill two birds with one stone.

Tony Perkins #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On Washington Watch today, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins criticized Democratic efforts to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which discriminates against gay and lesbian couples, and accused gays and lesbians of “thrust[ing] their bedrooms into the public square.” Perkins went on to say that opponents of gay rights should be proud that they “have compassion and love for those who are bound up in that destructive lifestyle of homosexuality”:

Look, we’re not in people’s bedrooms. What they have done is they have thrust their bedrooms into the public square and are forcing a redefinition of marriage, and forcing Americans to condone their behavior. But even the Democrats see this, that there is no support across America to redefine marriage. Folks, I just want to encourage you to continue to stand up for traditional morality, for natural marriage. Yes, we have compassion and love for those who are bound up in that destructive lifestyle of homosexuality. But we do not have to shrink back in silence and allow them to redefine marriage and to reshape our culture.

Jason Heller #racist vnnforum.com

Most people reading this will already agree that homosexuals have a very harmful effect on society. It is still worthwhile to review the facts that prove this.

1. Homosexuals are far more likely to spread STDs than normal people. In 2010, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) estimated that 20% of homosexuals are HIV positive (compared with approximately 0.2% of western Europeans and 0.6% of Americans [obviously, the American numbers are skewed upwards by negros and mestizos]). In 2013 and 2014, CDC also estimated that homosexuals were responsible for 75% and 83% respectively of syphilis cases.

2. Homosexuals are far more more likely to rape children than normal people. In a survey of all studies of self-reported sexual abuse, 20.1% of US girls and 8% of US boys report sexual abuse. Since female sexual abusers are almost non-existent, this means 8/28.1*100 = 28.5% of child sexual abuse victims are male. A Gallup poll from 2013 indicates 3.3% of US men are homosexual. So this means 28.5% of child rapes are being committed by 3.3% of the population. In other words, homosexuals are more than 8 times more likely to rape children than normal people in the USA.

3. What should be done about homosexuals? A ban on homosexuality was enforced in all of western Europe and North America for all but the past 50 years. This is definitely the right policy considering how harmful homosexuals are to society.


“Ashkenazi” Jews promote homosexuality in the following ways:

1. “Ashkenazi” Jews have transformed Palestine into Fagestine. Every Middle Eastern country except the one controlled by “Ashkenazi” Jews bans homosexuality. Tel Aviv, the second largest city by population and largest by economy in Israel (it also has a much higher percentage of population [92%] that is Jewish than Jerusalem [64%]), is known as “the gay capital of the Middle East”.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem
http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/t...-aviv/1.633757

2. Every city that kikes infest becomes a hotbed of homosexuality. According to a CNN report on the 2013 “gay pride” parade in Tel Aviv, an astonishing 20% of Tel Aviv residents are homosexual. In a 2011 survey of homosexual travelers carried out by American Airlines and GayCities.com, their favorite destination was Tel Aviv with 43% of votes, followed by New York City (home to the largest community of “Ashkenazi” Jews in the world, approximately 1,000,000) with 14% and Toronto (the Canadian city with the largest population of “Ashkenazi” Jews) with 7%.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histor..._New_York_City
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histor...ews_in_Toronto

3. Kikes almost single-handedly brought homosexuality into the US government. According to a CNN article from Nov 7, 2012, the just elected Tammy Baldwin was the first homosexual senator. The first commentator that the article quotes is (notice what tribe the commentator belongs to) Sally Kohn excitedly procaiming: "This is a big day for gay women in America". The article states that there are three other homosexuals in the 112th US congress: Barney Frank, David Cicilline, and Jared Polis. Guess what percentage of these four homosexual congresspeople are “Ashkenazi” Jews? One hundred percent, that's right, every single one of them is a kike. Baldwin's maternal grandfather was a kike, Barney Frank is a full kike, and Cicilline and Polis have kike mothers (see Wikipedia). Another very important example of kikes bringing homosexuality into the US government is Harvey Milk, the first openly homosexual male elected to any public office in the US who was not an incumbent. Allan Spear, another kike, was elected to the Minnesota state senate in 1972, and then later “came out” as homosexual.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvey_Milk
http://www.jweekly.com/article/full/...iticians-dies/

4. Kikes led the way in using the media to get Americans to accept homosexuality as normal. The TV show “Will & Grace” running from 1998 to 2006 was created by two kikes, Max Mutchnick and David Kohan. The lead actress (playing the character Grace) was kike Debra Messing. It was the highest rated sitcom among adults age 18-49 from 2001-2005. In 2012, VP Joe Biden stated, “I think ‘Will & Grace’ probably did more to educate the American public [about homosexuals] than almost anything anybody has ever done so far.”

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing our transparency. I am feeling a mixture of exhaustion and disgust all at the same time. Peter was live streaming a sponsored video on Youtube which he correctly identified as a sponsored video. Youtube suspended and deleted our channel right in the middle of that (February 14, 2020). There were no warnings. There were no strikes against us. Our account was clean and clear. Our account had fought off the Reused Content false accusation, and multiple false copyright strike accusations. We have fought for what is right over a year now. Youtube comes up with some new scam to punish us for being Christian and conservative.

At this point I am fed up with Youtube. I am sick and tired of always having to fight them as they continue to abuse their power. I am sick of the swamp of corruption that is Youtube. We just got the 100K plaque celebrating how Family Friendly Gaming passed one hundred thousand subscribers. We were actually almost to 104K subscribers when this happened. Someone at Youtube obviously hates us. Someone at Youtube is obviously trying to cancel and destroy us. We worked hard these last six and half years making good quality videos that are many times educational, and sometimes entertaining. We do not scam or spam with our channel. We are not misleading anyone in anything.

At this point I am sick and tired of this garbage. Youtube can change the rules whenever they want to. Youtube can redefine words to discriminate against people they hate. Youtube can lie, and falsely accuse without any punishment. I quickly appealed their bad decision, and then started researching it. I know I did that backwards. I was freaking out. Here again Youtube was adding stress and anxiety to my life. I think they are trying to kill me with their venom and hatred. I tried to go back and add to my appeal. I found out at that point that Youtube allows one appeal only, and then whatever they decide stands. They have zero transparency into their process. The appeal was denied. We have reached out to Youtube contacts and we have trying to get some assistance.

I have had enough of their constant discrimination against Christians, conservatives, men, traditional, and white people. This has gone on for too long. Youtube has gotten worse and worse. Their behavior should be boycotted by anyone with common sense, civility, and decency. Even if they reinstate our channel, what is to stop them from doing this again? They are so abusive, obtuse, and arrogant that they will allow this horrible behavior to continue within their company. For a year Youtube has cost us tens of thousands of dollars we earned. We project the lifespan of our channel could reach 100 million dollars. That is money Youtube is stealing from us based on a false accusation. Why go back to a place that treats me like a slave, and worse?

What does the future hold for our videos then? At this point in time I do not know. I am sick of Youtube. I am tired of their discrimination. I am tired of their harassment. I am tired of experiencing their hatred. I really do not know of any viable alternatives. I may look into additional server space to house videos on our website. There are of course potential problems with that. I may be completely done with videos. We can still stream on Twitch so that is something. I have looked before and not found good alternatives to Youtube for our videos. The other sites are even worse on the copyrighted music. I do not know if there are any good solutions going forward. Evil is obviously flourishing because good men and women are doing nothing. We have brought this issue to your attention. Can you help?

CALL TO ACTION: Please go to Youtube, on the bottom left of the screen is a leave feedback button. Please click that button and leave this feedback: "Please restore/reinstate the FamilyFriendlyGaming YT channel." If enough people leave this feedback Youtube just might reverse the decision.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

The Ankara Terrorist Blast: False Flag Catastrophe of Convenience?

The fireball from this week’s blast in Ankara had barely begun to fade before the world begun bracing itself for the predictable accusation that Syria’s Kurdish YPG (People’s Protection Units) were behind the blast. This is because Turkey has developed a transparently cynical strategy of staging blasts throughout its territory and behind to stoke fears, justify condemnation and retaliation and demonize not only it own enemies, but those of its partners in NATO and particularly, those of the United States.

Syria’s YPG was the obvious target of this blast and the barrage of accusations and threats that quickly followed because it is the YPG together with Syrian and Russian forces that now threaten to finally foil the US-NATO-GCC proxy by closing the Afrin-Jarabulus corridor, and specifically, the pivotal city of Azaz, located in Syria right along the Syrian-Turkish border.

For years Azaz has served as a nexus for foreign-backed militant operations not only in northern Syria, but as a logistical hub supplying terrorist operations all throughout the country. Its seizure by either Syria’s Kurdish YPG or the SAA (Syrian Arab Army) would effectively hobble US-NATO-GCC’s proxy war, at least in the north.

...

When Syria’s borders are closed, and the “civil war” evaporates, it will be proof-positive of the ploy these foreign powers have attempted to play against Syria, and will ultimately derail similar conspiracies being organized and arrayed against other nations across the entire planet.

For the people of Turkey, with yet another blast tearing through their capital and spilling the blood of their brothers and sisters, once again coincidentally times to break a geopolitical impasse their current government faces amid its schemes abroad, they are surely taking stock of the increasing price they have so far paid for this conflict, and extrapolating the debt they will incur should it be allowed to continue on even a day further.

Why does God let children die of cancer?

image

AUDIO VERSION: YouTube  Podbean

Why does God let children die of cancer? To answer this question we need to understand some fundamental truths about how this world works.

THE INJUSTICE OF DISEASE

Why does it feel so wrong to us when a child slowly wastes away with disease? There are many reasons. It goes against the natural order of things: children aren’t supposed to die before their parents. It also hurts us and we hate things that cause us pain. We think that the things that hurt us must be evil, therefore cancer is evil. Who do we associate with evil? Satan, of course, therefore Satan is to blame for cancer. This is the theological trail many Christians go down: they end up blaming Satan or else they sigh heavily and say “It’s a fallen world.” Still others personify the disease itself and treat it like a conscious being. “#&%$@ cancer!” is a phrase we see posted on internet profiles by those who are feeling frustrated and helpless as their loved ones suffer in front of them. But is cussing out cancer really getting us anywhere? And is plastering colored ribbons all over the earth really rushing us towards a cure? Suppose they found a cure for all cancers tomorrow and began passing it out for free in every country. Do you know what would happen? A new, nastier, scarier disease would suddenly spring up in our midst. Why is this? Because the One who created this world wants disease to be a part of it.

THE ORIGIN OF DISEASE

The way Christians try to blame everything on the Fall is ridiculous. When we talk like Eve sent the universe spinning out of control the moment she bit into the fruit, we are completely denying what is right in front of our eyes. We need to start back at the beginning of Genesis and try again. No one forced God to curse Adam and Eve with pain, hardship, and physical death. He came up with the idea of making our lives a trial all on His own because this planet was always intended to be a place in which we grow through suffering. So what does this tell us about God? Is He some kind of ogre? No, He’s not. But from our perspective, His methods can seem very cruel.

GOD’S PRIORITIES

In order to understand why God inflicts kids with cancer, we need to understand what His priorities are. Keeping us comfortable, happy and healthy while we are on this earth is not at the top of His list of important things. If He had wanted this place to be a perpetual paradise He would have made it one. Instead, He made Heaven a paradise and arranged for almost our entire existence to be there, provided we properly submit to Him (see Understanding Salvation: Meeting the Demands of Three Gods). We’re only on this earth for a brief blip of time, and while we are here, we are supposed to be growing closer to God. Everything that He does to us down here is with our spiritual best in mind. That includes inflicting children with malignant tumors.

Whenever we find ourselves feeling enraged about some form of suffering, it is because we’ve zoomed the lens in far too close. When we get upset about kids dying of cancer, we are only thinking of ourselves and our immediate earthly happiness. We’re not considering the long-term view. We’re putting the temporary above the eternal in value and worth. God does just the opposite. He says the eternal health of souls is far more important than our momentary sorrow on earth. We say pain is pointless. He says pain is a catalyst for causing great change in people’s hearts. We see a child suffering and say that God is cruel. He sees one child’s experience affecting hundreds of lives and shocking souls out of a fatal stagnation. God hurts us in order to heal us. Everything He does is for our best, but too often we refuse to put any trust in His motives, even though He has proven Himself to be infinitely more loving, faithful, and wise than we are.

No one is more dedicated to the well-being of humans than the One who created them in the first place. This world isn’t something that God stumbled upon one day and took a mild interest in. We are His carefully crafted, intricate masterpieces. He hovers over us constantly, meticulously arranging every detail of our lives. Tumors don’t just happen to people because of bad genes or exposure to toxins. God creates tumors in bodies with the same precision as He creates all of our internal organs. Tumors grow because He makes them grow. They are detected late because He blocks us from finding them early. They are cured because He cures them, and they kill us because He wants them to. God works through medicines, doctors, and a host of other things, yet we must not get so focused on His methods that we miss seeing Him. No child comes down with cancer by random chance or because God abandoned them to the clutches of Satan. God personally selects all the victims of cancer with great care, and it is not because He hates them or is just trying to punish someone.

THE FATHER OF OUR CHILDREN

All children belong to God. He is their true Guardian and when He involves us in their care it’s understood that it will only be for a temporary amount of time. At some point, He takes all of His children back again to an eternal dimension where He parents them directly. On earth, we human parents are simply mediators whose primary job is to teach children who their eternal Father is. Sometimes He gives us a lifetime to love and care for His children on earth. Other times, He reclaims them after only a few years. Do we really have the right to accuse God of being unfair in taking back what is rightfully His? Yes, it hurts terribly, and we shouldn’t pretend otherwise. But to tell God that He was wrong to take what His own hands have made—well, that simply doesn’t work. Other souls are not our property.

DEATH

From God’s perspective, no one dies prematurely and no one dies late. We say they do because we have preconceived notions about how long people should live. We’ve decided that there’s a rule that all children are supposed to outlive their parents. God never gave us any such guarantee. We’ve decided that anyone who dies from diseases or violence has been cheated. This simply isn’t true. God is clear that He predetermines the number of days that each soul will live on this earth, and no one fails to complete their full assignment. This is because no one can end a life without God’s cooperation. He alone has the power to separate soul from body, and to withdraw the breath of life that He put into us.

Humans try desperately to control the lifespan of themselves and others, yet God says that no one can do anything without His cooperation. We can plot and scheme all day, yet it is God who ultimately decides whether our plans fly or flop. We come up with new miracle drugs for cancer, yet it is God who decides who they work on. Some survive chemo, others die from it. Some are cured and stay cured, while others get constant recurring growths. Why is every case so different? Why can’t we find a formula that always works? Because God is involved. He has a far more important goal in mind than curing our physical bodies. He is after our souls.

GETTING OUR ATTENTION

God wants creatures who willingly choose Him, He doesn’t want robots. So while He controls every atom in existence, He also gives us some degree of choice. On a soul level, we are given the option to accept or reject Him. God wants His relationship with us to be a two-way street, not something He rams down our throats. He then spends our whole lives arranging events and experiences that will entice us to seek Him out. What happens when we see a child dying in front of us? We start asking why. We start looking for a cosmic source of justice. We start wondering if life really is some random set of coincidences, or if there could be some purpose to it all. We reevaluate our own lives and wonder if we’re really living for what is important. When the child dies, we look for some external source of comfort that can fill the void in our hearts. We wonder what our child found on the other side of death. We wonder what we will find when our turn comes.

It is when we feel helpless and distressed that we remember God. Too often that is the only time we remember Him. If we had our way, we’d erase all pain from this world and thereby take away one of God’s most effective means of securing our attention. Then we’d all become completely self-absorbed and totally ignore His existence. Does God smile on this plan? Not hardly. Our Creator loves us too much to let us walk away from Him without a fight. He will do anything it takes to intensify our interest in Him

God is the One who makes pain feel stronger when children are involved. Any good parent would much rather suffer themselves than watch their children suffer. This is the way it is supposed to be. God has set up levels of suffering on this earth. All trials are not equal. Some we can easily cope with, others temporarily devastate us. God inflicts children with incurable tumors when He has determined that only extreme measures will accomplish the soul changes He is after. It doesn’t always mean people are fighting Him. Sometimes there is no rebellion at all, yet God has decided it is time to push souls on to the next level of maturity. In every case, He carefully arranges which lives will cross paths, and the intensity of each person’s exposure to the suffering child. Some will sit at the bedside in hospitals, up close to the agony, while others will only receive brief updates through the internet. Every position is carefully arranged by God to spark conversations between Him and us. When a friend of ours is hurting, our natural instinct is to pray for them and tell God to stop doing what He’s doing. Our advice is utterly useless, and our wishes often misguided, but by getting us to talk to Him, God hopes that we’ll be willing to do some listening as well. He has things He wants to teach us in these moments. He isn’t just stirring us up so we can tell Him how to better run His universe. If we want to grow from these experiences, we must be willing to let God lead us instead of trying to lead Him.

When souls cooperate with God beautiful things happen. We change into something better than we were before. Our trust in God deepens. Our perspective of life shifts closer to the eternal viewpoint. Our priorities improve. Even if the changes are only temporary, they are worth it, for we will be all the swifter to respond to Him the next time a crisis arises. It is only when we close our hearts to God that we stagnate. When we demand healing, and even threaten to walk away from Him unless He gives us what we want, we only end up harming ourselves. God is not going to take orders from us. He will continue to do what He knows is best for hundreds of people, even though we selfishly demand that He care only about our personal pain.

If we are to thrive through suffering, we must recognize that there is a bigger picture involved. God is a multitasker who is always accomplishing many things at once. Yes, our suffering matters to Him very much, but to ask Him to stop caring about every other soul who is being positively affected by our pain is going too far. Instead of accusing God of being cruel, we need to give Him the trust He deserves. God knows what is best for us. As parents, we should be well acquainted with the principle that what a child needs is not always what a child will enjoy receiving. It is the same with us and God. He has promised to do what is best for us, even when it requires some misery on our part. The question now becomes, are we going to trust His judgment? Or are we going to insist that we know better than He does and wallow in self-pity? If we are wise, we will not go through life defining ourselves by the pain we have gone through, and the loved ones we have lost. Instead, we will let pain accomplish its good work in us and then let it go. In this world, God uses evil to bring about a greater good. If we align with His Spirit, He will teach us how to thrive through all forms of suffering.

Acupuncture advocates #fundie sciencebasedmedicine.org

Legislative Alchemy 2017: Acupuncture
Acupuncture is nothing more than a theatrical placebo. Yet acupuncturists, defined as primary care practitioners in some states, are succeeding in licensing and practice expansion efforts in state legislatures.

Acupuncture is a theatrical placebo. Its proposed mechanism of action is highly implausible and:

after decades of research and more than 3000 trials, acupuncture researchers have failed to reject the null hypothesis, and any remaining possible specific effect from acupuncture is so tiny as to be clinically insignificant.

In layman’s terms, acupuncture does not work – for anything.

Even the very CAM-friendly National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), in its own weasel-worded way, comes close to conceding the point:

Research suggests that acupuncture can help manage certain pain conditions, but evidence about its value for other health conditions is uncertain. [Emphasis added.]

Somebody tell the state legislatures. Via the magic of Legislative Alchemy, 47 states have legalized the practice of acupuncture along with, in some cases, Traditional Chinese, Oriental or East Asian medicine. In several states, acupuncture practice acts describe acupuncturists as primary care practitioners and/or give them the authority diagnose and treat any condition or disease. For example, in my state, Florida, the practice act says that acupuncture:

means a form of primary health care, based on traditional Chinese medical concepts and modern oriental medical techniques, that employs acupuncture diagnosis and treatment, as well as adjunctive therapies and diagnostic techniques, for the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health and the prevention of disease. [Emphasis added.]

In Nevada,

“Acupuncture” means the insertion of needles into the human body by piercing the skin of the body to control and regulate the flow and balance of energy in the body and to cure, relieve or palliate:

(a) Any ailment or disease of the mind or body; or

(b) Any wound, bodily injury or deformity. [Emphasis added.]

And in New Mexico:

“doctor of oriental medicine” means a person licensed as a physician to practice acupuncture and oriental medicine with the ability to practice independently, serve as a primary care provider and as necessary collaborate with other health care providers . . .

“oriental medicine” means the distinct system of primary health care that uses all allied techniques of oriental medicine, both traditional and modern, to diagnose, treat and prescribe for the prevention, cure or correction of disease, illness, injury, pain or other physical or mental condition by controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy, form and function to restore and maintain health. [Emphasis added.]

As with state chiropractic and naturopathic licensing, most states rely on a closed-loop system of education and examinations that is completely controlled by acupuncturists in determining who is qualified to become licensed. The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) administers the certification exams recognized by the states. Applicants for certification must have either graduated from schools accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) or foreign schools meeting criteria set by the NCCAOM.

While the ACAOM is approved as an accrediting agency by the U.S. Department of Education, the Department does not review the scientific validity of what is taught or perform any independent analysis of the graduates’ ability to competently and safely practice. Its focus is on administrative matters and the financial stability of the schools. The ACAOM standards do not require a college degree for admission to an accredited acupuncture/Oriental Medicine school and only 500 hours of supervised patient care are required in accredited programs to graduate with a Master’s in acupuncture (700 hours for a Master’s in Oriental Medicine). A Master’s allows one to sit for the NCCAOM exam. In sum, someone with no college degree and 500 hours of clinical training can become a “primary care provider” in some states.

2017 bills

Today we look at bills filed in eleven states to license, or expand the practice of, acupuncturists during the 2017 state legislative sessions. Six were successful. Two bills were defeated; three remain pending.

Prior to last year, acupuncturists did not have a practice act in Wyoming. This year they succeeded in gaining one, although the Wyoming legislature stopped short of giving them the right to practice Oriental Medicine, which was eliminated in the final bill. Acupuncture is somewhat narrowly defined as inserting needles, with or without electric current or heat, into the body for:

therapeutic purpose of promoting, maintaining and restoring health, including [but, we note, not limited to] the treatment of dysfunctions of the body involving pain.

Wyoming also joins several states who’ve been bamboozled into thinking sticking needles into peoples’ ears, otherwise known as “auricular acupuncture,” is effective for substance abuse and mental health issues. Promoted based on an unpublished and cherry-picked review of the evidence by an organization called the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), it is a perennial favorite with state legislatures looking to address mental health issues and drug abuse on the cheap.

New Hampshire enacted legislation creating something called a “Certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist,” who must be trained in the NADA protocol and supervised by an acupuncturist, although the “Specialist” needn’t be an acupuncturist himself. They can use “acu-detox” for:

behavioral health applications, including addictions, mental health, and disaster and emotional trauma.

One version of the bill specified that “acu-detox” could be used only in conjunction with other therapies but that bit of consumer protection against the ineffectiveness of pseudoscience in treating serious conditions was rejected.

Likewise, in Maine, a new law requires the state Department of Health and Human Services to develop a pilot project that will treat alcohol and substance abuse using the unproven NADA protocol. Fortunately, more sober minds prevailed in West Virginia, where a bill allowing the practice of NADA auricular acupuncture for chemical dependency failed.

Like their fellow CAM practitioners, naturopaths and chiropractors, once licensed, acupuncturists will return again and again to the state legislatures for practice expansion. In 2017, they succeeded in a big way in Illinois. There the legislature added the practice of “East Asian” medicine to the acupuncturists’ scope of practice, defined to include needle acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and dietary supplements, among others, to:

normalize physiological functions, or for the treatment of diseases or dysfunctions of the body.

Acupuncture itself is broadly defined to include not only traditional needle acupuncture, but also far-infrared, electro- and magnetic stimulation, cold laser, cupping, dry needling (discussed below), and the bruising massage practice known as gua sha:

In a move reminiscent of the chiropractic lobby’s efforts to make chiropractic schools the arbiter of what chiropractors can and cannot do, Illinois practitioners of acupuncture and East Asian medicine are permitted to perform a differential diagnosis via principles and techniques taught in acupuncture schools, like the fanciful tongue and pulse diagnosis.

Kentucky legislature #fundie rawstory.com

The Kentucky state Senate and House this week approved resolutions that require all dated documents include the words “in the Year of Our Lord.”

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, both chambers “quietly” passed the resolutions on the final day of the year’s legislative session.

Republican state Sen. Albert Robinson, sponsor of the measure, said that he was “trying anywhere and everywhere I can to respect our creator.”

“It’s important for us to go back to the basics of our U.S. and state constitutions that used that phrase,” he said.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R), who has officially declared 2017 the “Year of the Bible,” also dates all of his proclamations with “in the Year of Our Lord.”

Al Franken’s attempt to embarrass Focus on the Family fails

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday for the incredibly named “Respect for Marriage Act” - the measure to repeal DOMA - Democrat Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota attempted to make a fool of Focus on the Family’s Tom Minnery for asserting that children in traditional households do much better in several respects than those in nontraditional households.

Minnery had used data from a comprehensive, national HHS study to make the point that the traditional family model actually works pretty well, and that things tend to get screwed up majorly whenever it’s tampered with. The senator and former comedian took issue with this, and offered a logical parry destined to send LGBT blogs and media outlets into raptures.

“I… checked the study out,” said Franken, shrugging, as a titter of laughter was heard in the room. “And it actually doesn’t say what you said it says.”

The study, as Franken notes, defines a “nuclear family” as consisting of “one or more children living with two parents who are married to one another and are each biological or adoptive parents to all children in the family.”

“Isn’t it true, Mr. Minnery, that a married same-sex couple that has had or adopted kids would fall under the definition of a family in the study that you cite?” Franken questioned. “I frankly don’t really know how we can trust the rest of your testimony, if you are reading studies these ways.”

Only Franken seems to have forgotten that as of 2007, the end date of the study’s data, there was only one state in the union with gay “marriage.” According to UCLA’s William Institute, Massachusetts in 2008 had 13,285 homosexual “marriages.” This would put the 2007 national total at even less - let’s say 13,000.

Meanwhile, there were around 59 million total married households in America at the same time, putting same-sex “marriage” households at 0.0002% of all the “nuclear households” theoretically considered by the HHS study.

Minnery’s point, that a traditional household shouldn’t be messed with, is decidedly not debunked by calling foul over a two ten-thousandths technicality. The real question is whether Congress will swallow the push to slap a band-aid labeled “marriage” on yet another such experiment.

Biblical Marriage the Casualty of the "Sexual Revolution"

With Biblical marriage reeling under the attack by the virulent gay rights activists, we should have seen it coming. For fifty years, one court case after another has jackhammered away at the foundations of the family.

In most of history, “recreational sex” has replaced God’s plan for “one flesh” bonding of husband and wife when God’s laws are ignored.

Contraceptives were the first issue. In 1965, in a Connecticut case (Griswold v. Connecticut) involving the sale of contraceptives to married couples, an ominous seed was planted. Here the court "discovered" a right to privacy in the Bill of Rights for individuals instead of just in the sanctity of marriage.

By this time, godless Humanism had grown strong roots in our schools and legislatures. If man was truly the spearhead of evolution's progress, then whatever man wanted to do must be good, and whatever he did in private was nobody's business.

No unwanted blob of tissue growing in a womb could be allowed to hinder the enjoyment of those involved. So, in 1973, the court gave the owner of that womb permission to medically eliminate that inconvenience (Roe v. Wade).

More arrows in the heart of marriage followed rapidly. A Missouri case cut fathers out of the picture by voiding a law requiring spousal and parental consent to an abortion (Planned Parenthood of Central Missouri v. Danforth).

Parents of children were next. A New York law barring sale of contraceptives to 15-year-olds and younger was voided (Carey v. Population Services International). Parents no longer had the right to know if their child was planning premarital sex.In 1979, a Massachusetts law requiring parental consent for a minor’s abortion was struck down in Bellotti v. Baird.

Along the way, Texas’ anti-sodomy law was considered a violation of man’s “right to privacy” and was struck down in 2003 in Lawrence v. Texas.

With the foundations of marriage thus weakened, marriage itself came under fire. In 1993, Hawaii’s Supreme Court decided that the state’s marriage law violated the equal protection provision of the state constitution by not considering “sexual orientation.”

This direct attack on man-woman marriage alerted many, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) passed congress by a wide margin and many state legislatures passed similar bills.

However, gay rights activists, having succeeded in changing the discussion from “sexual preference” to “sexual orientation,” began attacking marriage in earnest.

If the evolving human animal now included a newly discovered sexual “orientation,” then it was “discrimination” to forbid any of the expressions of that sexuality. Anyone confused over his sexuality could claim victimhood when forbidden to explore new sexual experiments.

Federal and state governments rushed to add legal protection for these “victims,” adding “sexual orientation” to the long list of protected categories along with race, age, and disabilities discrimination.

In 2013 the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the DOMA (Windsor v. United States) after the president and the Justice Dept. refused to enforce it. The battle then moved to the States where bills were passed by popular vote to protect marriage. Powerful gay activists, many made rich by blossoming tech companies, poured millions into a blistering campaign against these votes. Across the country, homosexual judges or those sympathetic to the cause invalidated the laws put in place by the people, using anti-discrimination and personal privacy arguments.

Now, the drive is to eliminate any tattered remnant of normal marriage and put the bull’s eye squarely on the back of those who follow a biblical God.

Since marriage is the central issue, anyone who refuses to bake a wedding cake or design flowers for a same-sex wedding must be made an example of. And the complaints are lodged and fines imposed and everyone wonders what happened.

But this locomotive has been coming out of the dark tunnel for a long time. Only courageous soul winners can stop it. In past revivals no-nonsense gospel literature has played a vital role. We need to plant God’s truth about marriage far and wide.

Here are some helpful resources that you can use to saturate our communities with the Truth:

Indiana legislature #fundie dailydot.com

On Tuesday, the Indiana Senate approved a measure that would forbid pregnant minors from obtaining abortions without first attempting to legally notify their parents.

According to the Associated Press, the measure would change the state’s existing judicial waiver process for minors seeking abortions, which allows a minor to secure a juvenile court order that would bypass the state’s requirement to get a parent’s approval for an abortion.

The bill would require that at least one of the minor’s parents be served a legal written notice that the minor is seeking an abortion through the waiver process. Only once the notice is served could a juvenile court hearing occur to approve the minor’s waiver. The bill would also allow parents to testify if their daughter is competent enough to decide for herself if she can have an abortion.

Several lawmakers and abortion activists, Republicans included, said the bill would be deemed unconstitutional since it effectively eliminates the minor bypass. Critics also say the bill makes the process of obtaining abortions via parental bypass more difficult in cases of rape and incest and could put minors at risk of physical harm.

“This is essentially and fundamentally going through, around, and getting rid of the whole point of judicial bypass,” Democratic state Sen. Karen Tallian said, according to AP. “It puts the parents back into the mix, when the whole purpose of the bypass was to keep them out of the mix.”

However, supporters say the bill would protect teens from being coerced into having abortions, noting that it doesn’t allow parents to veto their child’s decision to get an abortion if granted the bypass—just that it would let parents provide evidence on the maturity of their child to make that decision.

According to the Indianapolis Star, executive director of the ACLU of Indiana, Jane Henegar, has said the bill violates current case law, and that they will sue Indiana if the bill becomes a law.

Research organization the Guttmacher Institute reports that of the 36 states that allow minors to pursue judicial waivers, none require parents be notified of the bypass. In addition to circumventing the bypass, the bill would also allow parents of minors who have had abortions to pursue legal recourse against individuals who helped the minor get the abortion without their consent.

Decisions on the parental notification bill came just a day after the Indiana House approved a bill requiring abortion providers to tell patients about a possible “abortion reversal” procedure, which hasn’t been scientifically proven to work. The bill would require that abortion providers tell women about the procedure, where they can get it, and include a disclaimer that it’s not scientifically proven.

A medical abortion requires two medicines to be taken over the course of a few days, but advocates of this bill say that the abortion can be reversed halfway through if patients are given a high level of progesterone. Opponents, including those who are against abortion, say the bill provides women with conflicting information and is far-reaching.

The parental notification bill has been sent to the House for further consideration, while the abortion reversal bill has been sent to the Senate.

Arizona Legislature Defends Christian Businesses From Gay Militants

The Arizona State Senate has once again placed itself in the liberal establishment’s crosshairs, this time by affirming our right not to be compelled to do business with overt homosexuals in situations that violate religious principles.

Media liberals preposterously but predictably screeched like scalded cats that the rights of homosexuals are violated if private citizens are not compelled by the government to enter into relations with them that violate their consciences. Their attempt to equate this with civil rights struggles of the past is an insult that should enrage blacks.

Senate Bill 1062 was explicitly inspired by an outrageous case from neighboring New Mexico, where a Christian photographer was sued for refusing to photograph a ceremony that according to her Christian beliefs was a blasphemous travesty.

The New Mexico case created a new sport for militant homosexuals, who can seek out Christian businesses, demand they participate in activities that are clear violations of their religious beliefs, then crush them with a lawsuit if they refuse to betray their faith. A particularly appalling example is the bullying of Jack Phillips, a principled baker in suburban Denver.

These thuggish tactics, backed up by a relentless establishment media propaganda barrage and conservative cowardice, have allowed the Left to achieve astonishing success in advancing the corrosive gay agenda.

Three Republicans who voted for it, intimidated by the inevitable backlash from the Left, are egging on Governor Brewer to veto the bill. Whether she has the spine to uphold the religious freedom guaranteed in the First Amendment, as well as the comparably fundamental right of freedom of association, remains to be seen.

Gary LaMoine #fundie inforum.com

BARNESVILLE, Minn. – If you want to be a Catholic, you have to be 100 percent Catholic.

That’s the lesson one family here learned after their 17-year-old son was denied confirmation after the priest at the Assumption Church here found a pro same-sex marriage post on the teen’s Facebook.

The decision by the Rev. Gary LaMoine to deny the religious rite of passage for Lennon Cihak in mid-October shocked his mother, who said her son has gone to church every week and volunteered around the community in preparation for his confirmation this year.

“You kind of know the Catholic beliefs, but I never thought they would deny somebody confirmation because you weren’t 100 percent. I guess that’s what shocks me,” Shana Cihak said.

The Facebook post in question was a photo of Lennon in front of an altered political sign. Originally reading “Vote Yes” on the Minnesota Marriage Amendment, which would have changed the state’s constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman, Lennon scribbled out the “yes” and replaced it with “NO!”

Shana, who said she was confirmed at the same church, was called into a private conversation with the priest soon after the photo was discovered and was told her son wouldn’t be allowed to complete confirmation.

Ted Cruz #fundie breitbart.com

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Monday that he plans to introduce a constitutional amendment barring the federal government or the courts form overturning state marriage laws.

Citing the Supreme Court's "tragic and indefensible" refusal to take up same-sex marriage cases - essentially legalizing same-sex marriage in another 11 states - Cruz announced the proposal in a statement. He said he has already introduced legislation in the Senate to "protect the authority of state legislatures to define marriage," because "marriage is a question for the states."

"And that is why, when Congress returns to session, I will be introducing a constitutional amendment to prevent the federal government or the courts from attacking or striking down state marriage laws," the potential 2016 GOP presidential contender announced.

[...]

"Traditional marriage is an institution whose integrity and vitality are critical to the health of any society," Cruz said. "We should remain faithful to our moral heritage and never hesitate to defend it."

Cornel Rasor #fundie spokesman.com

Idaho Republican Party leaders are calling on the state Legislature to invalidate local city ordinances that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation - like the one Coeur d’Alene passed after an emotional community debate just two weeks ago.

Six Idaho cities have passed such non-discrimination ordinances in the past year and a half, and a seventh, Idaho Falls, is looking into one now; the Idaho GOP wants them halted.

Cornel Rasor, a former Bonner County commissioner and chairman of the Idaho GOP’s resolutions committee, said, “I’d hire a gay guy if I thought he was a good worker. But if he comes into work in a tutu … he’s not producing what I want in my office.”

“Resolved, that the Idaho Republican State Central Committee recommends that our legislators support Idaho’s current anti-discrimination laws and policies and enact a law that would make unenforceable any municipal ordinances that would seek to expand categories of prohibited discrimination beyond current state anti-discrimination laws and policies,” the resolution states.

“If a guy has a particular predilection and keeps it to himself, that’s fine,” Rasor said. “But if he wants to use my business as a platform for his lifestyle, why should I have to subsidize that? And that’s what these anti-discrimination laws do.”

The "High Octane Nightmare Fuel" Award

Antonin Scalia #fundie advocate.com

In an interview, Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia says the Constitution doesn't promise protections for women and gays.

California Lawyer asked Scalia the following question: "In 1868, when the 39th Congress was debating and ultimately proposing the 14th Amendment, I don't think anybody would have thought that equal protection applied to sex discrimination, or certainly not to sexual orientation. So does that mean that we've gone off in error by applying the 14th Amendment to both?"

The ultraconservative judge replied that the Constitution doesn't require discrimination against minorities, but that it certainly doesn't prohibit it.

"Nobody ever thought that that's what it meant," Scalia said of the 14th Amendment protecting women. "Nobody ever voted for that. If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, hey we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws."

Individual Rights?
Where do "individual rights" come from?
Answer: Individual rights are based on morality. Morality comes from God.
When individuals define their own "rights" or "morality" we get anarchy, immorality, chaos, and moral relativism (whatever I want is good as long as I don't (seemingly or immediately) "hurt" anyone else).
For example, "individual rights":
1) Redefine real heterosexual marriage to mean a union of same-sex couples; then what follows are other deviant marriages - polygamy, bestiality, male and female harems, child-adult marriages, and any combinations that the deviant and debased mind can imagine.
2) The "right" to murder babies in the womb; the "right" to chose who lives or dies- the weak , the sick, the old, the handicapped.
3) The "right" to suicide.
4) The "rights" to produce, sell, and watch pornography.
5) The “right” to special rights; affirmative action, quotas, hate crimes, hate speech (calling someone who disagrees with the Homosexual agenda a “homophobe”), and some people are more equal than others.

We prohibit_polygamy to protect women against religious and cultural abuse.

We prohibit_bestiality to protect animals against abuse, not to mention to just put a stop to perversion.

We prohibit_pederasty to protect children.

We prohibit_murder to protect people from killing each other.

We prohibit_incest to protect families against abuse and to avoid the chance of babies with genetic abnormalities.

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage because kids have the right to be raised by their biological mother and father - same-gender marriages legally deny them this right 100% of the time, by design. So we protect kids from this by prohibiting any other form of "marriage" besides one man and one woman.

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage because kids have the right to be raised by a mother and a father, not forced into setups that are dysfunctional 100% of the time and deny them this right: two or more fathers and no mother, or two or more mothers and no father. So we protect kids from being legally denied this right by prohibiting any other form of "marriage" besides one man and one woman.

We prohibit two people of same gender from being called a marriage (which it NEVER has in the history of the world) by the state as that's the state violating the constitution to establish their own state religion: Redefining religious institutions they never defined to begin with.

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage because the government is violating the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America by REDEFINING religious institutions then passing laws to establish this new state religion where anyone who does not adhere to this new state religion is condemned as a criminal: sued and fined thousands of dollars.

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage because in general marriage is for the possibility of procreation for the continuance of society - it's the bedrock of any healthy society. A same-gender marriage is, by design, never capable of such a thing and hence has one less basis of being called a "marriage".

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage because any pro-creation should be within a marriage - same-gender 'marriages' are forced to go outside the 'marriage" 100% of the time by design. So we prohibit same-gender "marriage" to protect the foundation of a healthy nation.

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage to protect Christians from being charged as a criminal if they do not violate their beliefs.

We prohibit two people of the same gender from being called a marriage because every single person alive has one biological mother and one biological father. Nature alone re-iterates what marriage is - that this is what a family is.

GOP Tea Pub #fundie gop-tea-pub.tumblr.com

Ahhhh you poor poor delusional moronic douche canoe. It is truly sad that people LIKE YOU have access to the internet and refuse to do any actual research. Then have the audacity to post BS statements that have ZERO actuality to them. But, let me just school you and show you EXACTLY how asinine you and those that follow and believe you, truly are. Those that know the truth are laughing at you and your followers…laughing hysterically as a matter of fact. It must be painful to be that out of touch.

Prior to 2010, the following is what readers got when they clicked on the Democrats.org “History” button….
Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws, and every law that protects workers. Most recently, Democrats stood together to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.
On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight. We support vigorous enforcement of existing laws, and remain committed to protecting fundamental civil rights in America.

This is the kind of BS spewed by Democrats on a daily basis, and unfortunately the media and other so-called watchdogs are so apparently ignorant of American history, Democrats continue to LIE through their teeth to their constituents, and via academia, to our kids. Despite the truth being out there for years, it’s probably not going to explode until some big shot news anchor gives us an “exclusive expose” bringing us all those facts first, so he/she can proudly receive a Pulitzer…

And let’s not forget the words of liberal icon Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood…We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably
with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The
most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious
appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate
the Negro population…so the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to
lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common
sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition
their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

The left is quite annoyed that myself and others dare link the racist, segregationist past in this country to Democrats, at that flies
in the face of everything they claim to champion, when it comes to civil
rights, racial tolerance, etc.

The Democrats’ own website,
to this day, attempts to take fraudulently credit for the civil rights
movement and legislation, and when called on it, the recitation is the
same: “we’ve grown” and “don’t forget about the Dixiecrats”.

Defensive liberals claim the Dixiecrats, as a whole, defected from the Democrat Party when President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (no thanks to Democrats), and became Republicans which they claimed were more accepting of segregationist policies.

Well, I decided to get some opinions on the matter from some historians.I contacted Professor Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton for advice. Larry and I worked on a documentary based on a chapter on Ronald Reagan from his best-selling book, A Patriot’s History of the United States.

The idea that “the Dixiecrats joined the Republicans” is
not quite true, as you note. But because of Strom Thurmond it is
accepted as a fact. What happened is that the **next** generation (post
1965) of white southern politicians — Newt, Trent Lott, Ashcroft,
Cochran, Alexander, etc — joined the GOP.

So it was really a passing of the torch as the old segregationists
retired and were replaced by new young GOP guys. One particularly
galling aspect to generalizations about “segregationists became GOP” is
that the new GOP South was INTEGRATED for crying out loud, they accepted
the Civil Rights revolution. Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter led a group of
what would become “New” Democrats like Clinton and Al Gore.

Larry also suggested I contact Mike Allen, Professor of History at
the University of Washington, Tacoma (who also appeared in the Reagan
documentary) for input.
There weren’t many Republicans in the South prior to 1964, but that doesn’t mean the birth of the souther GOP was tied to “white racism.” That said, I am sure there were and are white racist southern GOP. No one would deny that. But it was the southern Democrats who were the party of slavery and, later, segregation. It was George Wallace, not John Tower, who stood in the southern schoolhouse door to block desegregation! The vast majority of Congressional GOP voted FOR the Civil Rights of 1964-65. The vast majority of those opposed to thoseacts were southern Democrats. Southern Democrats led to infamous filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The confusion arises from GOP Barry Goldwater’s vote against the ’64
act. He had voted in favor or all earlier bills and had led the
integration of the Arizona Air National Guard, but he didn’t like the
“private property” aspects of the ’64 law. In other words, Goldwater
believed people’s private businesses and private clubs were subject only
to market forces, not government mandates (“We reserve the right to
refuse service to anyone.”) His vote against the Civil Rights Act was
because of that one provision was, to my mind, a principled mistake.

This stance is what won Goldwater the South in 1964, and no doubt
many racists voted for Goldwater in the mistaken belief that he opposed
Negro Civil Rights. But Goldwater was not a racist; he was a libertarian
who favored both civil rights and property rights.

Switch to 1968.Richard Nixon was also a proponent of Civil Rights;
it was a CA colleague who urged Ike to appoint Warren to the Supreme Court; he was asupporter of Brown v. Board, and favored sending troops to integrate
Little Rock High). Nixon saw he could develop a “Southern strategy”
based on Goldwater’s inroads. He did, but Independent Democrat George
Wallace carried most of the deep south in 68. By 1972, however, Wallace
was shot and paralyzed, and Nixon began to tilt the south to the GOP.
The old guard Democrats began to fade away while a new generation of
Southern politicians became Republicans. True, Strom Thurmond switched
to GOP, but most of the old timers (Fulbright, Gore, Wallace, Byrd etc
etc) retired as Dems.

Why did a new generation white Southerners join the GOP? Not because
they thought Republicans were racists who would return the South to
segregation, but because the GOP was a “local government, small
government” party in the old Jeffersonian tradition. Southerners wanted
less government and the GOP was their natural home.

Jimmy Carter, a Civil Rights Democrat, briefly returned some states
to the Democrat fold, but in 1980, Goldwater’s heir, Ronald Reagan,
sealed this deal for the GOP. The new “Solid South” was solid GOP.

BUT, and we must stress this: the new southern Republicans were
*integrationist* Republicans who accepted the Civil Rights revolution
and full integration while retaining their love of Jeffersonian limited
government principles.

And what did Malcolm X say about the “Dixiecrats”…?

So, there you have it. YOU are WRONG. YOU are UNEDUCATED. YOU refused to do RESEARCH. YOU look like a FOOL. Next time, try actually looking something up, instead of blatantly spewing lies and expecting people to believe you.

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS DID NOT SWITCH SIDES ON RACISM By Frances Rice

As a result of unrelenting efforts by Democrats to shift their racist past onto the backs of Republicans, using the mantra: “the parties switched sides”, a lot of people have requested an article addressing this issue.

It does not make sense to believe that racist Democrats suddenly rushed into the Republican Party, especially after Republicans spent nearly 150 years fighting for black civil rights. In fact, the racist Democrats declared they would rather vote for a “yellow dog” than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks.

From the time of its inception in 1854 as the anti-slavery party, the Republican Party has always been the party of freedom and equality for blacks. As author Michael Scheuer wrote, the Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism. Democrats have been running black communities for the past 50+ years, and the socialist policies of the Democrats have turned those communities into economic and social wastelands.

An alarming view of what America will be like in a few years due to unbridled socialism being pushed by President Barack Obama and his Democratic Party cohorts, is contained in the article: “Detroit: The Moral of the Story” by Kevin D. Williamson that is posted on the Internet.

Democrats first used brutality and discriminatory laws to stop blacks from voting for Republicans. Democrats now use deception and government handouts to keep blacks from voting for Republicans. In his book, “Dreams From My Father,” Obama described what he and other Democrats do to poor blacks as “plantation politics.”

The racist Democrats of the 1950’s and 1960’s that Republicans were fighting died Democrats. One racist Democrat who survived until 2010 was US Senator Robert Byrd, a former recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. Notably, the Ku Klux Klan was started by Democrats in 1866 and became the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party for the purpose of terrorizing and lynching Republicans—black and white. Byrd became a prominent leader in the Democrat-controlled Congress where he was honored by his fellow Democrats as the “conscience of the Senate.”

Byrd was a fierce opponent of desegregating the military and complained in one letter: “I would rather die a thousand times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen of the wilds.”

Democrats denounced US Senator Trent Lott for his remarks about US Senator Strom Thurmond. However, there was silence when Democrat US Senator Christopher Dodd praised Byrd as someone who would have been “a great senator for any moment.” Thurmond was never in the Ku Klux Klan and, after he became a Republican, Thurmond defended blacks against lynching and the discriminatory poll taxes imposed on blacks by Democrats. While turning a blind eye to how the Democratic Party embraced Byrd until his death, Democrats regularly lambaste the Republican Party about David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Ignored are the facts that the Republican Party never embraced Duke and when he ran for the Republican Party presidential nomination in 1992, Republican Party officials tried to block his participation. Hypocritical is the word for how Democrats also ignore Duke’s long participation in the Democratic Party with no efforts by Democrats to block him. Below is Duke’s political history in Louisiana, which has an open primary system.

Duke ran for Louisiana State Senator as a Democrat in 1975. He ran again for the Louisiana State Senate in 1979 as a Democrat. In 1988, he made a bid for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. Then, on election day in 1988, he had himself listed on the presidential ballot as an “Independent Populist.” After his unbroken string of losses as a Democrat and an Independent Populist, Duke decided to describe himself as a Republican, then ran the following races where he lost every time: in 1989 he ran for Louisiana State Representative; in 1990, he ran for US Senator; in 1991 he ran for Governor of Louisiana; in 1992 he ran for president; in 1996 he ran for US Senator; and in 1999 he ran for US Representative.

Contrary to popular belief, President Lyndon Johnson did not predict a racist exodus to the Republican Party from the Democratic Party because of Johnson’s support of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Omitted from the Democrats’ rewritten history is what Johnson actually meant by his prediction.

Johnson feared that the racist Democrats would again form a third party, such as the short-lived States Rights Democratic Party. In fact, Alabama’s Democrat Governor George C. Wallace in 1968 started the American Independent Party that attracted other racist candidates, including Democrat Governor Lester Maddox.

Behind closed doors, Johnson said: “These Negroes, they’re getting uppity these days. That’s a problem for us, since they got something now they never had before. The political pull to back up their upityness. Now, we’ve got to do something about this. We’ve got to give them a little something. Just enough to quiet them down, but not enough to make a difference. If we don’t move at all, their allies will line up against us. And there’ll be no way to stop them. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

Little known by many today is the fact that it was Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Johnson, who pushed through the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In fact, Dirksen was instrumental to the passage of civil rights legislation in 1957, 1960, 1964, 1965 and 1968. Dirksen wrote the language for the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Dirksen also crafted the language for the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibited discrimination in housing.

Democrats condemn Republican President Richard Nixon for his so-called “Southern Strategy.” These same Democrats expressed no concern when the racially segregated South voted solidly for Democrats for over 100 years, while deriding Republicans because of the thirty-year odyssey of the South switching to the Republican Party.

The “Southern Strategy” that began in the 1970’s was an effort by Nixon to get fair-minded people in the South to stop voting for Democrats who did not share their values and were discriminating against blacks. Georgia did not switch until 2004, and Louisiana was controlled by Democrats until the election of Republican Bobby Jindal, a person of color, as governor in 2007.

As the co-architect of Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”, Pat Buchanan provided a first-hand account of the origin and intent of that strategy in a 2002 article posted on the Internet. Buchanan wrote that Nixon declared that the Republican Party would be built on a foundation of states’ rights, human rights, small government and a strong national defense. Nixon said he would leave it to the Democratic Party to squeeze the last ounce of political juice out of the rotting fruit of racial injustice.

The Claremont Institute published an eye-opening article by Gerard Alexander entitled “The Myth of the Racist Republicans”, an analysis of the decades-long shift of the South from the racist Democratic Party to the racially tolerant Republican Party. That article can be found on the Internet.

Another article on this subject by Mr. Alexander is entitled “Conservatism does not equal racism. So why do many liberals assume it does?” and is posted on the Internet.

KKK Terrorist Arm of the Democratic Party
By Frances Rice

History shows that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the
Democrat Party. This ugly fact about the Democrat Party is detailed in
the book, A Short History of Reconstruction, (Harper & Row
Publishers, Inc., 1990) by Dr. Eric Foner, the renown liberal historian
who is the DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University.
As a further testament to his impeccable credentials, Professor Foner is
only the second person to serve as president of the three major
professional organizations: the Organization of American Historians,
American Historical Association, and Society of American Historians.
Democrats in the last century did not hide their connections to the Ku
Klux Klan. Georgia-born Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Grand Dragon
of the Ku Klux Klan wrote on page 21 of the September 1928 edition of
the Klan’s “The Kourier Magazine”: “I have never voted for any man who
was not a regular Democrat. My father … never voted for any man who was
not a Democrat. My grandfather was …the head of the Ku Klux Klan in
reconstruction days…. My great-grandfather was a life-long Democrat….
My great-great-grandfather was…one of the founders of the Democratic
party.”

Dr. Foner in his book explores the history of the origins of Ku Klux
Klan and provides a chilling account of the atrocities committed by
Democrats against Republicans, black and white.

On page 146 of his book, Professor Foner wrote: “Founded in 1866 as a
Tennessee social club, the Ku Klux Klan spread into nearly every
Southern state, launching a ‘reign of terror‘ against Republican leaders
black and white.” Page 184 of his book contains the definitive
statements: “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the
interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who
desired the restoration of white supremacy. It aimed to destroy the
Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state,
reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial
subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

Heartbreaking are Professor Foner’s recitations of the horrific acts of
terror inflicted by Democrats on black and white Republicans. Recounted
on pages 184-185 of his book is one such act of terror: “Jack Dupree, a
victim of a particularly brutal murder in Monroe County, Mississippi -
assailants cut his throat and disemboweled him, all within sight of his
wife, who had just given birth to twins - was ‘president of a republican
club‘ and known as a man who ‘would speak his mind.’”

“White gangs roamed New Orleans, intimidating blacks and breaking up
Republican meetings,“ wrote Dr. Foner on page 146 of his book. On page
186, he wrote: “An even more extensive ‘reign of terror’ engulfed
Jackson, a plantation county in Florida’s panhandle. ‘That is where
Satan has his seat,‘ remarked a black clergyman; all told over 150
persons were killed, among them black leaders and Jewish merchant Samuel
Fleischman, resented for his Republican views and for dealing fairly
with black customers.“

AllSeeingI #conspiracy abovetopsecret.com

You all see my signature! [Senator Paul] Wellstone’s assassination was what woke me up from the matrix. He was a friend of mine, and my state senator. He was a close friend of some of my family. He was one of the true great politicians would stood up for the little guy and always did what was right.

Here are some of the facts about this case which scream conspiracy:

FBI was dispatched from the twin cities to go to northern MN by the then Gov. Norm Coleman (Wellstone’s Senate race opponent) hours before Wellstone's plane even left for its destination.

FBI was already on the scene in a remote wooded area before the very first responders could get there.

The cover story says that the weather was poor and icing was likely a factor. Well search planes with less icing protection than the Beechcraft 100 that crashed were up looking for the rash site in the same weather and reported good conditions and no icing.

The crashed aircraft had evidence of massive electrical fire, yet the fuel in the wings never ignited and the tanks were intact at the crash site.

Locals in the area reported massive electrical disturbances around the time of the crash which may suggest the use of some type of electrical bomb or beam used to bring down the aircraft.

[From "Some States Want to Prevent Husbands From Having Sex by Closing Loopholes in “Marital Rape” Laws"]

You can’t really genocide whites if they’re having successful marriages and lots of kids. Having sex is needed in order to have kids, so making having sex harder for husbands is a critical part of the destruction of the family and the lowering of white birthrates.

AP Witches were still being burned at the stake when Sir Matthew Hale came up with his legal theory that rape could not happen within marriage. The 17th century English jurist declared it legally impossible because wedding vows implied a wife’s ongoing consent to sex.

Three and a half centuries later, vestiges of the so-called “marital rape exemption” or “spousal defense” still exist in most states — remnants of the English common law that helped inform American legal traditions. Legislative attempts to end or modify those exemptions have a mixed record but have received renewed attention in the #MeToo era.

Witchcraft is real and demons are real.

Burning witches was necessary to prevent society from degenerating into something like what we have today, where witches are allowed to hold positions of power, to pervert society and to do all kinds of evil.

The most recent efforts to roll back protections for spouses focus on rapes that happen when a partner is drugged, unconscious or otherwise incapacitated. Minnesota is the latest to take action. The state Legislature this week voted to eliminate the exemption, which had prevented prosecutions in those cases.

[...]

Saying that “marital rape” is a thing is like saying that you can rape a prostitute after paying for her services.

[...]

The idea that a husband can rape a wife is preposterous. “Marital rape” is only a thing because of this stupid Talmudic “consent” gibberish that managed to confuse people about the basic nature of human mating.

What is even the point of marriage if your wife can just refuse sex as if she were not your wife and divorce you whenever she feels like it?

Women are property. Rape is bad because it lowers the value of another man’s property. It turns good quality womb-golem virgins into loose-lipped STD-infected used items, and used items are worth less than brand new items. If she’s your wife, the whole point of marriage is that her uterus is yours, and you don’t damage your tools by using them for their intended purpose.

Rape is supposed to be about property, not about women’s feelings.

A law stating that a man cannot have sex with his wife is a law stating that marriage does not exist and that the woman is not his, which goes back to “what is even the point of marriage nowadays?”

A wife denying sex to her husband is literally stealing from him.

Scott Lively #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Scott Lively said yesterday that a global Satanic “conspiracy” is “homosexualizing the world” and only a “revolution” of gay rights opponents can stop it.

In an interview with Religious Right talk show host Janet Mefferd, Lively insisted that gay rights victories are “proof of the conspiracy, we’re talking about the elites represented in the federal judiciary, across the top strata of our society — I don’t think there is really much difference between the Republicans and Democrats at that level — and they are imposing a global socialist agenda on all of us.”

[...]

Lively called the gay rights movement a demonic push to bring about the Last Days: “This is the moral issue of the End Times, it’s clearly a spiritual phenomenon, in the space of just fifty years this movement has gone from being illegal — homosexuality, homosexual sodomy was illegal in every country of the world except for Sweden which legalized it in in 1938 — and now this tiny group of people, 1 to 2 percent of the population, has more power in the legislatures and the courtrooms of the world than the Christian church does.”

[...]

Lively added that the gay rights movement has moved the world into an “age of apostasy” and anti-gay activists must be ready to “give up our lives if necessary.”

He later called on activists to speak “into the face of the demons that are grabbing a hold of our society and tearing it down” and not to listen to “weenies“ who have fallen for “the lie of the pit of Hell.”

Oklahoma House of Representatives #fundie reuters.com

An Oklahoma bill that could revoke the license of any doctor who performs an abortion has headed to the governor, with opponents saying the measure in unconstitutional and promising a legal battle against the cash-strapped state if it is approved.

In the Republican-dominated legislature, the state's House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a Senate bill late on Thursday. Governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, has not yet indicated whether she will sign it.

Under the bill, doctors who perform abortions would risk losing their medical licenses. Exemptions would be given for those who perform the procedure for reasons including protecting the mother or removing a miscarried fetus.

"This is our proper function, to protect life,” said Senator Nathan Dahm, the Republican who authored the bill.

A handful of representatives argued against the bill, saying it violated the Constitution by prohibiting a doctor from performing a medical procedure that was legal under law.

"Oklahoma politicians have made it their mission year after year to restrict women’s access vital health care services, yet this total ban on abortion is a new low," said Amanda Allen, senior state legislative counsel at the Center for Reproductive Rights.

The lobbying group and several other abortion rights organizations have promised court challenges if the bill is enacted.

Supporters of the bill said it will help protect the sanctity of life.

"If we take care of morality,” bill supporter David Brumbaugh, a Republican, said during deliberations, "God will take care of the economy."

Unnamed manager #fundie lawnewz.com

The plaintiff calls himself “Mr. C” when talking to media outlets. This Chinese national won’t use his full name. All his relatives work for the government, he told BuzzFeed.

Mr. C, a transgender man, filed a complaint to a local labor arbitration committee in China on March 7, after a former employer fired him for wearing men’s clothing in the office. A ruling is expected within 45 days.

“They say I’m a lesbian, and that I damage the company’s image,” he told The Paper, a state-owned publication in China.

He’d gone a while after the firing without knowing he had legal options. China’s labor laws feature no protections for transgender people, according to OutRight Action International. But then he attended a January legal panel held by Wider Pro Bono Legal Service Center in the city of Shenzhen. That’s where he met Huang Sha, his lawyer for the ongoing case. They say they have recordings of relevant conversations between C, and his former manager.

Sociologist Li Yinhe told BuzzFeed this is China’s first transgender labor discrimination case.

The National People’s Congress, the country’s legislature, is also batting about labor law reforms that would shield non-heteronormative sexual orientations and gender identities from discrimination and low pay. Still, Huang doubts the law would even get passed.

“This is an invisible issue for the government,” Huang said.

OutRight Action International states that police harassment against transgender people is common. Trans people have trouble getting jobs, and 2009 regulations put certain restrictions on getting gender reassignment therapies. For example, applicants must be at least 20, unmarried, and inform their family members of the surgery, which would be an issue if those people are dead or estranged.

John Diehl #fundie rightwingwatch.org

The Kansas City Star today reported that the speaker of the Missouri House, Republican John Diehl, sent several sexually charged text messages to a female college freshman who was working as an intern in the state legislature.

Diehl, who is married, has championed the Religious Right’s anti-gay agenda in the state house, and has in turn been praised by state conservative groups for his “moral leadership.”

Earlier this year, Diehl and the president pro-tempore of the state Senate filed an amicus brief in defense of the state’s anti-gay-marriage amendment, leading the Missouri Family Policy Council, the state affiliate of the Family Research Council, to praise the speaker “for demonstrating moral leadership and true integrity in standing up for the sacred institution of marriage and the family values of the people of Missouri.” The state affiliate of the Southern Baptist Convention thanked him for “fighting to defend biblical marriage.”

“Missourians owe a debt of gratitude to Speaker of the House Tim Jones, Senate President Pro Tempore Tom Dempsey and Speaker of the House-designee John Diehl for intervening on behalf of the state in the Jackson County case where state Circuit Judge J. Dale Youngs ruled that 10 same-sex couples married in other states, but now living in Missouri, are entitled to the same benefits as heterosexual married couples,” said Don Hinkle, editor of the Missouri Southern Baptist newsletter The Pathway. “Their action took political courage and they are to be commended for their leadership.”

Diehl also co-sponsored a 2012 bill to ban Gay-Straight Alliances in public schools, which read: “Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, no instruction, material, or extracurricular activity sponsored by a public school that discusses sexual orientation other than in scientific instruction concerning human reproduction shall be provided in any public school.”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch at the time called it a “hateful and unconstitutional attack on individual rights” and slammed Diehl for backing “a loathsome bill in a cynical attempt to garner support from the right wing.”

[From "Bullying Porn Sluts Until They Kill Themselves is Tough But Necessary"]

You just can’t have a society where it is okay for women to have sex for money on camera.

This story of a porn slut getting bullied to suicide in 2014 is sad, but it is simply a necessary fact of life. If you do not bully girls who engage in porn, then they will all do it, because women are naturally narcissistic, money-grubbing whores.

No woman will respect her own dignity for the sake of her own dignity – only a man is capable of thinking in those terms. So there have to be clear consequences. If the consequences are humiliation, and the women know about these consequences, they are likely to try to avoid them. Of course, most girls don’t get caught doing the porn by their whole school. And six years on from this story, there has been six very hard years of anti-slut shaming propaganda.

Daily Mail

The heartbroken mother of a 19-year-old straight-A student who took her own life weeks after filming an amateur porn has revealed their final conversation and spoken out about the vicious bullying her daughter suffered.

Melissa Funke, 36, of Stillwater, Minnesota, spoke to her daughter on April 17 only minutes before she committed suicide. The chemistry student then texted her mother ‘I just want to die’ in a message tragically she didn’t see before it was too late, she told MailOnline.
Alyssa Funke decided to take part in a sex video with a stranger in Las Vegas for website CastingCouch-X, using the name ‘Stella Ann,’ as a way of covering college expenses, her mother said – but she couldn’t deal with the relentless bullying from former high school classmates that it resulted in.

[...]

She wrote a post to her ‘future husband’ and a vulnerable message about wanting a relationship where you ‘never feel unwanted or alone,’ but that warmth never came for the distraught teen.

Yeah.

They all crave a husband who loves them for who they are – while there are literally tens of millions of men in this country who would play that role for them. But instead of taking one of those tens of millions of men up on their offer, they go to college and do porno.

Oh but I guess living a life of fun and sex without any consequences isn’t what they really want and what they really want is to just be trad-wife mothers in wheat fields.

And I guess the reason they go to college and do porno and go on spring break and have sex with blacks is because…

Because… it’s somehow men’s fault?

[...]

But the bullying never stopped – even after her death. Online trolls have been hounding memorial pages in her honor.

Many of the messages said ‘suicide is a sin’ and that the girl ‘would burn in hell.’

Yes!

Of course, right now, this girl is burning in hell.

She was on the road to hell before this, but her soul could have been saved.

Now she’s dead, her life was meaningless, and no one cares but her single mother.

It’s sad she’s dead. Believe me, I’m sad. But this is a huge success, where a small group of high school kids were able to do a much needed PATROLLING on a thot.

This should have served as both a warning to other women and an instruction manual to society of how to respond to porno sluts.

But nowadays, these whores get so much positive reinforcement that they actually end up BOOSTING their self-esteem by doing porno.

Our society is broken.

Utah State Senator Chris Buttars #fundie sltrib.com

Sen. Chris Buttars wants Utah's Legislature to declare its opposition to the "war on Christmas."

The West Jordan Republican is sponsoring a resolution encouraging retailers to embrace Christmas in their promotions rather than the generic "holidays."

"It would encourage the use of 'Merry Christmas,'" Buttars said of the non-binding statement that is still being drafted. "I'm sick of the Christmas wars -- we're a Christian nation and ought to use the word."

Several fellow lawmakers he wouldn't yet name support his effort, added Buttars, who has a long history of championing the socially conservative agenda of the Utah Eagle Forum.

Bobby Jindal #fundie politico.com

Only two hours after Louisiana’s state legislature squashed a law that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against same-sex couples, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal issued an executive order to accomplish its intent.

“In Louisiana, the state should not be able to take adverse action against a person for their belief in traditional marriage,” Jindal said.
Story Continued Below

HB 707, which would have blocked the government from penalizing companies because of the owner’s stance on same-sex marriage, was defeated in the state house’s Civil Law and Procedure over fears that it legalized discrimination against LGBT people.

“We don’t support discrimination in Louisiana and we do support religious liberty. These two values can be upheld at the same time,” the governor said.

Jindal said he was “disappointed by the committee’s action.”

His executive order came the day after the Louisiana Republican announced he is forming an exploratory committee for a potential White House bid in 2016. Jindal has stated that he will make and announce his final decision after the state’s legislative session culminates June 11.

Jindal is a strong proponent of a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage across the country. When Indiana and Arkansas drew fire for bills that critics said would legalize discrimination against LGBT citizens, the Louisiana governor was quick to defend the legislation and criticize the states’ governors for advocating legislative compromise.

The state’s Democratic Party Executive Director Stephen Handwerk responded by calling Jindal’s decision a “stunt,” that showed disregard for Louisiana’s tourism industry. (As controversy in Indiana and Arkansas brewed, many pro-LGBT businesses and groups suggested boycotting travel to the states.)

“Louisiana taxpayers and businesses are once again being forced to foot the bill for Jindal’s vanity,” said Handwerk. “It’s foolishness our families cannot afford.”

Jindal’s decision was first reported by the New Orleans Times Picayune.

William Dembski #fundie geocities.com

Evolution theory on last legs, says seminary teacher
By Dylan T. Lovan, ASSOCIATED PRESS, 5/2/06

LOUISVILLE - To William Dembski, all the debate in this country over evolution won't matter in a decade.
By then, he says, the theory of evolution put forth by Charles Darwin 150 years ago will be dead.

The mathematician turned Darwin critic says there is much to be learned about how life evolved on this planet. And he thinks the model of evolution accepted by the scientific community won't be able to supply the answers.

"I see this all disintegrating very quickly," he said.

Dembski is one of the country's leading proponents of intelligent design, which asserts that certain features of living organisms are best explained by an intelligent cause. The ideas put forth by Dembski's movement have piqued the interest of some school boards, churches and politicians -- including Kentucky's governor and President Bush.

But biologists call Dembski's statements on the death of evolution absurd. They say intelligent design, or ID, has failed as a science, so its supporters are trying to foster interest in a receptive public.

Dembski, who holds a Ph.D. in mathematics and philosophy, teaches a course on intelligent design at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. He calls Darwinian evolution "viscerally unacceptable" to most Americans.

"It is a reasonable question to ask if there are patterns in biological systems that point us to intelligence," he said in an interview. "It is a reasonable question to ask what are the limits to evolutionary mechanisms."

Kentucky Gov. Ernie Fletcher called design by an intelligent source a "self-evident truth" in his annual State of the Commonwealth address in January. Fletcher has said he would encourage schools to teach the concept.

That is despite a December ruling by a federal judge in Pennsylvania that intelligent design should not be taught as science in Dover, Pa., schools.

U.S. District Judge John E. Jones wrote that "overwhelming evidence at trial established that ID is a religious view, a mere relabeling of creationism, and not a scientific theory." Jones found intelligent design failed as a scientific theory because it can't be tested.

"He pretty much pegged it for what it was," said James Krupa, an associate biology professor at the University of Kentucky. "It really should just be called God theory."

Krupa said evolution science is not dying.

"It's the driving force, it's the foundation of all biology," said Krupa, who teaches evolution courses at UK. "Natural selection and evolution theory are getting stronger and stronger."

For the American public, opinions on evolution vary.

According to a 2004 Gallup poll, about 35 percent of Americans think Darwin's theory is well-supported by evidence, another 35 percent said it is not, and 29 percent said they didn't know enough about it.

Several state legislatures are considering bills critical of the traditional teaching of evolution in the classroom. Legislators in Oklahoma and Missouri have introduced measures to change science teaching standards. In Nevada, a masonry contractor has introduced a constitutional amendment that says there are many questions about evolution.

"It's an ongoing debate; I'm not surprised that the public tends to be somewhat interested in it," said Rob Crowther, a spokesman for the Seattle-based Discovery Institute, which funds intelligent design research.

That debate is fueled by a belief that Darwinian evolution is linked to atheism, said Eugenie Scott, director of the National Center for Science Education and a former UK professor.

"This is actually, I think, key to understanding this whole controversy in this country: people think that because science restricts itself to a natural cause, it's therefore saying that God had nothing to do with it," Scott said.

Dembski and other proponents say intelligent design is in its infancy and not yet ready to be taught alongside evolution in the science classroom. Crowther said the Discovery Institute actually opposed the actions by the Pennsylvania school board that brought the federal court case.

"People assume that we must be actively and aggressively seeking for intelligent design to be put in the classroom, and that's not our position," he said. "What should be required in a classroom is more about evolution, and by that we mean students should be able to learn not only the evidence that supports it but also some of the criticisms of the theory."

That is enough for now, Dembski said.

"I guess I would say that even though intelligent design has a long way to go, it seems to me evolutionary theory is so problematic that just about any alternative that's scientific, or has the possibility (of being scientific) should be allowed on the table," he said.

Lady Checkmate's headline: "Minnesota Town Allows Satanic Memorial in Veterans Park After Threats of Lawsuit"

Foolishness.
Sin, death, evil. etc. does not honor anyone nor anything. I pray God's will is done there. I pray that revival sweeps through Minnesota and that the gospel of Jesus Christ be shared with boldness in Jesus name. Amen.

Mick Williams:
We have the same satanic agitators in my state. Even worse, the Black Lies Matter terror group tried to cause trouble recently, even though this is a peaceful and prosperous area. They were going to block traffic in five cities. Nothing appeared on the news about it: either the turnout was low, or they couldn't provoke the violence they hoped for. We're definitely in that lawless time "as in the days of Noah".

Lady Checkmate:
I still believe Black Lives Matter was started to promote equality, respect and protest in peace. I also believe it was not the grass roots supporters that engaged in nor supported physical violence. They should've continued in that vein and stood for righteousness, not joined with alt-left sjw thugs who hate God and whose only interest is to promote immorality, rebel against God and violently attack anyone who stands for righteousness. I can not in good conscious support any group that openly rebels against God. No matter what their stated purpose is.

The enemy seeks to pervert initiatives that are started with good intentions. Consider the civil rights movement, which was needed because people were being discriminated against based on race which is not a behavior, is not sin and you have no control over. Then consider how the alt-left lunatics have perverted what was meant to insure equality for ALL races to seek legalization of their sin behavior choice and rebellion against God. I always say, do not compare your sin to the color of my skin. Being AA is not a sin, but certain behaviors are sin.

I believe in my heart that those who participated in the civil rights movement, many of whom were Christians of ALL races, would not have done so (put their lives on the line) for the immoral behavior and choices of the lost. I know I wouldn't. I do not support rebellion against God. His will be done.

Dave Gahary, James Fetzer and Mike Palecek #conspiracy splinternews.com

The publisher of a book claiming the Sandy Hook shootings were a hoax apologized to Lenny Pozner, the father of one of the victims, several weeks ago, agreed to stop selling the book, and issued a statement saying he believes Pozner’s son Noah did really die in the attack. Shortly after, though, the publisher, Dave Gahary, auctioned off some of the last copies of the book with starting bids at more than twice the normal price. And in a recent conversation with Splinter, Gahary said he still has “questions” about what happened at Sandy Hook.

“My views aren’t so set in stone that I can say nobody died at Sandy Hook,” Gahary said. “I just have questions, like everybody else does.” (Most people do not have questions about Sandy Hook, a mass shooting in which 27 people died, 20 of them children, plus the perpetrator.)

Pozner, whose son Noah was the youngest victim in the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings, won a defamation lawsuit in mid-June against James Fetzer and Mike Palecek, the editors of the book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, which was published by Gahary’s Moon Rock Books. Pozner is the lead plaintiff in at least nine other defamation cases against Sandy Hook hoaxers, according to CBS.

Fetzer is an emeritus professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth and a longtime promoter of various conspiracy theories; besides Sandy Hook, he’s called the Holocaust “falsified” and promoted conspiracy theories about the JFK assassination and 9/11. Palecek is a writer in Minnesota who describes himself as a “former federal prisoner for peace.” He’s also so little-known that some news stories about the case misspelled his name. Moon Rock Books publishes conspiracy titles claiming several mass casualty events, including the Parkland shootings and the Boston Marathon bombings, were all false flags.

A judge in Wisconsin issued a summary judgment against Fetzer and Palecek in mid-June; at the same time, in a settlement agreement that remains partially confidential, Gahary agreed to stop selling Nobody Died at Sandy Hook after June 30. (In response, Fetzer said that “my day in court did not turn out as expected,” and continued to insist that one of the pieces of evidence in his book was true.)

The two sides came to the agreement, Gahary told Splinter, when he traveled to Wisconsin from the Florida Panhandle to be deposed in the lawsuit (though his deposition ultimately didn’t happen).

“I was 100 percent sure [Pozner] wasn’t going to show up,” Gahary said. But Pozner did, and Gahary was in the room to watch his deposition. In the process, he says, something changed for him.

“One of the things that struck me was how gracious Lenny was to come there and answer all the questions,” Gahary said. Seeing him for many hours over a period of a few days, he added, “It was easy to come to the conclusion that the odds someone would be lying about this were very low. So I shook his hand, I apologized and said ‘If there’s anything I have done to contribute to your misery, let me know what I can do to minimize that.’”

Gahary and Pozner and their lawyers ultimately came to an agreement that Moon Rock Books would stop selling the books on June 30; both sides say that other settlement terms remain confidential.

As has been widely reported, Gahary also issued a statement apologizing to the Pozner family, saying in part: “My face-to-face interactions with Mr. Pozner have led me to believe that Mr. Pozner is telling the truth about the death of his son. I extend my most heartfelt and sincere apology to the Pozner family. As a result, Moon Rock Books has decided to discontinue publishing and selling Nobody Died at Sandy Hook.” (The rest of the statement can be read in full at The Wrap.)

The story could’ve tidily ended there, but it didn’t. Those heartfelt and sincere apologies didn’t mean that Moon Rock didn’t rush to sell out what suddenly became a hot, rare commodity. On June 23, they sent out an email blast announcing that slightly damaged copies of the book would be sold for half-price. Then, just before June 30, Gahary and Moon Rock Books auctioned off 10 copies of the first edition of the book, with starting bids at $50. (Gahary said that black-and-white versions of the book ordinary went for $20 and color for $30.)

“The $50 [amount] was arrived at arbitrarily,” Gahary said. “We thought that instead of selling it for $100, let’s say, that we would put it out in an auction arena, an auction format and let people decide what the fair market value was of that, and I think they did.”

Gahary said he felt fine about the decision to sell the book for as long as possible, despite his conversation with Pozner.

“I didn’t have any discomfort selling the book,” he said. “I don’t have any discomfort selling these type of books because I think it’s up to the individual to make the decision. That’s the healthy thing that people should do. If they’re revolted by such a topic, that’s fine, that’s their feeling. If they’re excited about such a topic, that somebody’s talking about it and putting their thoughts down on paper into book form, that’s fine as well. I don’t really have any emotions when it comes to this, other than the emotion that people should never be restricted as to what they should be able to read. And I think that’s the overriding feeling that I have about all this. But it’s not that I ever wanted to hurt anybody’s feelings. That’s what I told him when I met him.”

In the end, Gahary said, the books all sold, one for more than $100. “What’s important was that decision was made and the books aren’t being sold anymore,” he said. He added that he wouldn’t sell another Sandy Hook book “because of my interactions with Lenny.”

“I would say no,” he said. “When I decide something I don’t change my mind. I’m never going to be compromised. I’m never going to have a lot of money. That’s the way I am. I sleep well at night. I don’t hurt anything. I don’t even kill insects. And I wouldn’t do it because I made him a promise and I’m a man of my word.”

But despite his newfound admiration for Pozner, Gahary also indicated to Splinter that he still has “questions” about Sandy Hook and the other parents and families whose children also died. In our conversation, he referenced a YouTube video popular among Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists that supposedly shows a Sandy Hook father “laughing” when he “thought he was off-camera,” as Gahary put it. (The videos are implying the father was an actor.)

“I know that many people have the same feeling, that this event in Sandy Hook is rather odd,” he added. “It’s not that I came to the conclusion that nobody died at Sandy Hook or that people did die at Sandy Hook. My position is that I wasn’t there. I don’t have firsthand knowledge. The government and the media have done many things historically, they have lied... That’s just a fact. For anybody to actually believe the government unequivocally and immediately and the mainstream media, they’re idiots. Why would you do that?”

Gahary continues to insist he can’t possibly know what really happened at Sandy Hook, not yet. “When I met Lenny I could only make a determination based on him,” he said. “Not the rest of the parents. Maybe if I met the rest of the parents, my views would change.”

The Great Replacement: Minneapolis

Minneapolis, Minnesota, was almost entirely white until 1980. However, in the last few decades, large numbers of non-whites came to the city, especially immigrants from Somalia. Now, the idyllic city created by settlers and pioneers is a center for black crime and Islamic terrorist recruitment.

The city’s story began when the United States Army built Fort Snelling after the War of 1812 to guard American settlers. The most famous non-white inhabitant of Fort Snelling was Dred Scott, whose efforts to escape slavery led to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dred Scott v. Sandford. Chief Justice Roger Taney wrote that blacks were not citizens and “are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the world ‘citizens’ in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States.”

After more settlers came, several local settlements combined. Adolf Hoeffler, a German who visited the area in 1852, predicted it would eventually become “an extensive manufacturing town, and depot of all the future productions of the extreme Upper Mississippi.” Minneapolis was ideally placed for milling flour, not just manufacturing. Its name means “water city.” From 1870 to 1890, Minneapolis grew from 13,000 people to almost 165,000. Almost everyone was white.

Many city leaders wanted to keep it that way. “Restrictive covenants” to keep neighborhoods white were used from 1910 until 1950. The fascist Silver Legion or “Silver Shirts” had a presence in the city in the 1930s. Blacks were simply not a significant presence in the city for most of its history, so ethnic tension was between Jews and gentiles, not blacks and whites. Some help-wanted ads even said, “Gentile preferred.” Minneapolis was a critical battleground for the Progressive movement. The Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party didn’t unite with the Democrats until 1944, and the quasi-socialist MFLP was able to elect candidates such as Minneapolis mayor Thomas Latimer. Class and ideology — not race — dominated city politics.

Non-whites started coming to the city in large numbers in the 1970s and 1980s. By 1990, the city was more than 20 percent non-white. Some migrants may have been tempted by Minnesota’s generous welfare programs. However, there was also a deliberate effort by churches and refugee settlement organizations to bring them. Corporations also wanted cheap labor, such as the meat packers who hired Somalis.

A graph showing the white population of Minneapolis falling from 99% a century ago to 60% today.

Organizations such as Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities, and World Relief Minnesota have worked with the State Department to settle foreign “refugees.” Many such organizations are essentially funded by the federal government, and have a clear financial interest to importing migrants. Without government, there would not be nearly so much resettlement.

In 2004, Minnesota was the number-one destination for foreign refugees on a per-capita basis. The Hmong began arriving in large numbers after the fall of South Vietnam in 1975. Their numbers are a good example of how military intervention brings foreigners. Beginning with 60 “refugees” in 1976, the Twin Cities region (Minneapolis and St. Paul) eventually “attracted the largest Hmong population in the country.” There are now more than 66,000, which means the area is the largest urban Hmong population in the world. Minneapolis now has Hmong gangs, which occasionally re-enact their tribal conflicts on American streets.

Hispanics have also come. The percentage of Hispanics almost quintupled from 1990 to 2010, rising from 2.14 percent to 10.47 percent.

There is a huge Somali population in Minneapolis: over 125,000. One area is called “Little Mogadishu” and is plagued by gangs. An estimated 23 men from the Twin Cities have joined the Islamic terrorist group al-Shabab since 2007. NPR did a series on “The Somali-Minneapolis Terrorist Axis” in 2009, chronicling many cases of Somali “teens” joining militant groups through an underground recruiting network.

The city accommodates Muslims. Somali businesses are permitted to stay open after regular closing hours during Ramadan. During the current pandemic, the Islamic call-to-prayer sounds in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

Violent crime is overwhelmingly black, but it sometimes spills out of black areas. In 2019, pipe-wielding Somali “youths” attacked people waiting for public transportation. That same year, black mobs attacked citizens, stealing cell phones and valuables. The police claimed that “race has nothing to do with it.”

The pandemic has not stopped the shootings. Someone killed a black “aspiring musician” outside his home on April 9. Less than two weeks later, someone killed Kevin Beasley, the grandson of “veteran peace and civil rights activist Spike Moss.” Mr. Moss called the deaths of young black men “our epidemic before the epidemic.” Beasley had a criminal record and was shot at a “house party,” though Minnesota has been under a “stay-at-home” order since March 25. Earlier this month, someone shot a city councilman’s car full of holes. Last Monday, there was a “rolling gun battle” between people in two cars, resulting in “grave” injuries for a young woman.

Still, majority white Minneapolis is considered a great city – a “miracle,” according to one Atlantic article in 2015. Success has not spread to non-whites. In a remarkable response to the “miracle” article, “Minneapolis’s White Lie,” The Atlantic’s Jessica Nickrand painstakingly listed the racial disparities in Minneapolis. Rates of poverty and educational failure are so high, she compared Minneapolis to Detroit.

Most of the article sounds like something I would write: She cites Minneapolis’s affordable living cost, robust job market, and good schools, calling it “the American Dream.” Of course, she adds, “60 years ago, so was Detroit.” The Twin Cities’ decline may “just come later” because it’s on the same course.

Agreed.

Her conclusion lost me. “For Minneapolis to remain successful,” she wrote, “the progressive policies of the 1960s and 1970s must evolve to reflect the changing population, prioritizing affordable housing, neighborhood integration, and investment in public education and health services.” That, she says, would be the real “miracle.”

Jessica Nickrand rejects the obvious explanation that Detroit collapsed because whites fled. The same is happening to Minneapolis. The programs Miss Nickrand wants haven’t fixed racial disparities in the past and won’t now. “Little Mogadishu” will just get bigger. The miracle we need is whites recognizing what is happening. If that happens, we can stop subsidizing our dispossession.

Giving a young boy to two lesbians to raise, effectively strengthens and empowers NAMBLA to gain access to young boys. Since the young boy has no father, and any male friends that the two lesbians have will almost assuredly be sodomites. Well, it's a disaster waiting to happen. The growing boy will desire an emotional connection from older men, which will likely be pedophiles, since they're all a part of the homosexual community.

Dr. Franklin Graham (Billy Graham's son) is correct... Gays Recruit Children Through Adoption!!! It's really tragic and a travesty of justice in America! Just 75 years ago in America, the very idea of same-sex couples raising a child was outlawed and scorned to shame, and acts of homosexuality were punishable crimes by law (up until the years 1962-1963 when our nation banned God and His Holy Word forever from our children's daily lives in the classroom). Since then, homosexuals have crawled out of the sewer and are now legislatures, judges, U.S. Presidents, attorneys, holding umpteen key government positions, Congress, Senators, et cetera. America's Communist government, which has been hi-jacked by the Illuminati gang of murderous criminals, has been deliberately promoting hundreds of LGBT into important government positions, because they know immoral people don't think in terms of morality (that is, right or wrong). They'll sell their soul for money, promotion, pleasures and fame!

"PROHIBITION OF DISCRIMINATION BASED ON
RESEARCH RELATED TO INTELLIGENT DESIGN.

An institution of higher education may not discriminate against or penalize in any manner, especially with regard to employment or academic support, a faculty member or student based on the faculty member’s or student’s conduct of research relating to the theory of intelligent design or other alternate theories of the origination and development of organisms."

Michele Bachmann #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Former Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann was a guest on Jan Markell’s “Understanding The Times” radio program again last weekend, where she claimed that a hotline set up by the city of Minneapolis for reporting hate crimes was fascist and a violation of the separation of church and state.

Last month, Minneapolis announced that a hotline had been established to allow residents to report hate crimes, which include “any crime against a person or property motivated by prejudice against someone’s race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity. This includes prejudice-motivated property damage (including graffiti), stalking and assault.”

Bachmann claimed that this hotline is really an attempt to outlaw criticism of Islam and institute Sharia law, insisting that its creation is a violation of the separation of church and state.

“What we’re seeing is that hotlines are being set up by units of government for the purpose of encouraging people to call in and rat on their fellow man to report a hate crime,” she warned. “What they’re trying to do is implement anti-blasphemy laws. They’re trying to implement Islamic Sharia law locally in order to quiet churches and quiet anybody who would talk about what the truth is about Islam.”

“What they want is civilization jihad,” Bachmann continued. “They want jihad through the court system to silence speech because when you take away someone’s speech rights to speak out—like we’re doing right now, to tell the truth about something—then it’s game over … There should be a lawsuit filed against the city of Minneapolis for doing this. They have violated the so-called separation of church and state that the left is so in love with because they’re preferring Islam over any other religion and, number two, they’re fascists. That’s what they are, they’re fascists; they want to shut down your right to free speech.”

Bradlee Dean #fundie minnesotaindependent.com

“I said time and time again that there is a correlation between the Muslims and the homosexual agenda, and we have a couple of fools in the state of Minnesota that are putting a rope around their neck and they just don’t realize it,” said Dean [audio below]. “Here, let me give it to you this way: Keith Ellison is a Muslim.”

Dean said that Ellison’s support for protections for LGBT people from hate crimes and for same-sex marriage is part of an attempt to overthrow the U.S. Constitution and implement Sharia law.

“Why is he so adamant about overthrowing the Constitution as it is right now? Because if you pay attention to the plow he’s planting the seed,” Dean said. “He’s trying to come through with Sharee [sic] law.”

Raising his voice, he urged his listeners, “Does somebody want to talk to the homosexual community in the state of Minnesota and tell them what he is doing? Go online, folks! You love the homosexuals so much then why don’t you tell them who they’ve appointed as their chairperson? He’s a Muslim!”

He continued, “Hello? Why is he after it? Because he wants to bring in Sharee [sic] law through the homosexual agenda!

“They are using the homosexuals as a political battering ram to bring forth what? Sharee [sic] law.”

Briarwood Presbyterian Church #fundie salon.com

Donald Trump’s election didn’t just empower the alt-right troops with their #MAGA hats and Pepe the Frog avatars. The religious right is also more quietly making moves to consolidate power on a state and local level, aided by Trump’s promises to appoint conservative-friendly judges and to strike down legal limits on church-based politicking.

But even in the current environment, it’s startling to learn that the Alabama legislature is considering a bill to give a Birmingham-based church its own police force. The bill, SB 193, would specifically authorize the Briarwood Presbyterian Church, which has more than 4,000 members, to hire its own police force that would be “invested with all of the powers of law enforcement officers in this state.”

“The sole purpose of this proposed legislation is to provide a safe environment for the church, its members, students and guests,” the church said in a memo sent to Salon after requests for comment. The memo also mentions the Sandy Hook shooting, claiming that they need “qualified first responders” in case such a thing would happen to them.

This particular church does not sit in some kind of lawless territory without access to the same law enforcement services available to other Alabama citizens. As NBC News notes, the church is serviced by the sheriff’s departments in both Jefferson County and Shelby County.

“This proposed legislation seems like a clear violation of church-state separation, and a clear violation of the Constitution,” said Alex Luchenitser, the associate director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, in a phone call. “Government bodies must not delegate official power to religious entities.”

[...]

Briarwood Presbyterian Church presents its request as a security measure, but, as Luchenitser notes, the church is already allowed by law to hire private security guards if it wishes. He worried that police who are invested with state powers but ultimately answerable to the religious institution that hired them could lead to all sorts of legal problems.

Having police that work directly for a church, he argued, could lead those police to feel they are there to “enforce the religious beliefs of this particular church.”

It’s not an idle concern. As Luchenitser noted, religious conservatives have gotten creative in recent years, in search of extra-governmental power to force obedience to their religious edicts on as many people as they can grab.

“The Christian right is pushing to allow businesses to discriminate against customers based on religious beliefs,” he pointed out, noting the various lawsuits from Christians who disapprove of legal same-sex marriage and are trying to carve out special rights to discriminate against couples whom the law no longer discriminates against.

[...]

Digging around the website for Briarwood Presbyterian Church reveals an authoritarian, theocratic bent. The pastor, Harry Reeder, puts out a regular podcast where he frequently defends Donald Trump and pushes back against the concept of secularism.

“There is no sacred-secular split in life,” Reeder argued in a March 21 podcast. “Everything in life comes under the sovereign claims of Christ.”

“That judgment if not by Divine edict is inevitable by Divinely ordained consequences for those who engage in high-handed rebellion against God’s law,” Reeder wrote in a blog post responding to the Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage across the country. “Those nations who knowingly break God’s law will inevitably be broken by God’s law.”

Peter Sprigg #fundie #homophobia mediamatters.org

Extreme anti-LBGTQ group Family Research Council regularly traffics in extreme language, but it recently published a post by Peter Sprigg about LGBTQ Pride Month, which was particularly vile even by its own standards. In the blog, Sprigg said gay men should not be proud because HIV is "a direct result of that sexual behavior" and that mental illness in the LGBTQ community is evidence its members are not "natural."

Sprigg, a senior fellow at FRC, has called for homosexuality to be criminalized and has said, “I would much prefer to export homosexuals from the United States than to import them into the United States because we believe that homosexuality is destructive to society.” Sprigg has pushed his anti-LGBTQ views internationally at the global summit of World Congress of Families (WCF), where he “argued that transgender identity is unscientific,” according to Right Wing Watch. The WCF is an international coalition of anti-choice and anti-LGBTQ groups led by former National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown, and it promotes extreme right-wing policies around the world under the guise of protecting the “natural family.”

Domestically, Sprigg has given public comment at a committee meeting urging the Food and Drug Administration’s to uphold its policy banning men who have sex with men from donating blood, advocated to the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee against nondiscrimination protections for transgender people, and testified before state legislatures in Vermont, Hawaii, and New Hampshire against protections for LBGTQ youth from conversion therapy. Moreover, Sprigg’s boss, FRC President Tony Perkins, was appointed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to be a commissioner of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Sprigg also writes articles spreading anti-LGBTQ misinformation across several right-wing platforms, including The Daily Signal, Washington Examiner, and The Christian Post. Right-wing and evangelical media, in turn, quote Sprigg as an expert on conversion therapy and the health needs of transgender people even though he is not a medical professional.

In an article posted on June 11, Sprigg railed against the LGBTQ community under the deceitfully reasoned headline “Should Christians Recognize ‘LGBT Pride?’” Anti-LGBTQ organizations often try to pit religious rights against LGBTQ equality in a fallacious “God vs. Gay” dichotomy, though the majority of religious groups think homosexuality “should be accepted,” according to Pew Research. Here are some of the worst anti-LGBTQ comments that Sprigg pushed in the FRC blog post:

"The high rates of mental illness that accompany such feelings is strong evidence against the idea that homosexual and transgender feelings are ‘natural.’”

"Men who have sex with men, in particular, have high rates of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases as a direct result of that sexual behavior—so is it something to be ‘proud’ of?”

"To accept ‘LGBT Pride’ is to accept the assertion that these feelings are a normal and natural variant of human sexuality.”

"Some individuals who identify as transgender ask surgeons to mutilate or remove otherwise healthy body parts—often with serious long-term consequences—in order to make their bodies resemble more closely their desired sex. Is this something to be proud of?”

"To endorse ‘LGBT Pride’ is to endorse all three—to affirm that LGBT feelings are normal and natural (which is untrue), that LGBT behaviors are harmless or even admirable (also untrue), and that their LGBT ‘identity’ is innate (untrue as well).”

"Homosexual activists and their allies in the states have even been invading the privacy of the relationship between mental health providers and their clients, by passing laws to prohibit sexual orientation change efforts, or SOCE (which critics refer to as ‘conversion therapy’) with minors.”

"The former tennis star and self-identified lesbian Martina Navratilova said, ‘Catholic clergy has been a lot more dangerous to kids than LGBT’ (apparently without irony, since there is reason to believe that most of the Catholic priests who have molested children are themselves homosexual).”

Reason2012 #fundie christiannews.net

Marriage existed before any governments did. So when they start trying to pass laws to redefine what governments never defined to begin with but which God defined, they're now violating the Constitution and passing laws to establish their own version of a State Religion, then treat those who will not violate any religious belief contrary to it as criminals.

You want a state religion that criminalizes all other religious beliefs but the one you agree with - that's Saudi Arabia. The rest of us want the liberty to exercise our religious beliefs and not be criminalized by the government and its state religion.

Gay Worship Strikes Again!

When my wife wound up in the hospital, along with three other drivers, because of some idiot who rammed into her car while yakking on his cell phone–totally destroying the car, even bending the chassis–his penalty was $150.00.

When a New York City cab driver recently told a pair of lesbians to stop making out in the back seat of his cab, and they walked off without paying the fare, for this heinous crime of “discrimination,” a court has fined the cabbie $15,000 –a whopping 100 times the penalty incurred for damn near killing four other people.

We have actually entered a phase in our country’s history in which the civil government, at every level, rewards evil and punishes good. Everyone is to be compelled to bow down before the idol of Gay supremacy.

Why do we accept this?

The interesting factoid released last week was that cable/sat licensing revenues comprised 80% of CurrentTV’s revenue, with the other 20% coming from on-air advertising. I did not realize that these channels were THAT budgetarily dependent on the cable/sat fees. I would have thought that advertising revenue was in excess of 50% of their total revenue. I was very, very wrong in that assumption.

The point is, you people are paying for this crap, and they are TOTALLY dependent on your monthly pinches of incense. You and your tacit consent via your continued patronage of the cable/sat market are absolutely, positively, without question the entire driving force behind all of it. If they lose the cable/sat licensing revenues, it’s lights out, right now. The ad revenue is not even close to sufficient to keep them afloat. That’s just the walking around money to them.

How ironic that they are making the lion’s share of their money off of people who never, ever watch their channel, but are too apathetic to withdraw their consent and their dollars. And it isn’t just Algore and CurrentTV. It is MTV and their utterly satanic sewage. It is the “gay” channel. It is Oprah’s neo-pagan cult channel – rotting the brains and souls out of one middle-aged suburban Kathy at a time. It is MSNBC. It is FoxNews and its insidious ploy to dupe people like you into thinking that the Republic is still intact, and that “Republicans” are actually fighting against the Obama regime, and that all of this will be straightened out once we “take back the Senate and maybe even the White House!”, and that the Obama regime is merely an incompetent, left-of-center historical speedbump. Rah! Rah! Yay America! It’s bread and circuses for people like you – people with 20 IQ points on the average “Dancing With the Stars” viewer. O’Reilly, Krauthammer, Kelley, Hannity – none of these people will touch the truth with a ten foot pole, and never will. Because the Truth in days like these leads to toilet scrubbing. ”Centrist moderation”, aka lying by both commission and omission, leads to eight-figure annual pay packages. They have made their choice, you must make your choice. I damn sure have made mine.

Sali says America was built on Christian principles that were derived from scripture. He also says the only way the United States has been allowed to exist in a world that is so hostile to Christian principles is through "the protective hand of God."

"You know, the Lord can cause the rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike," says the Idaho Republican.

According to Congressman Sali, the only way the U.S. can continue to survive is under that protective hand of God. He states when a Hindu prayer is offered, "that's a different god" and that it "creates problems for the longevity of this country."

[Commenting under "Minnesota Supreme Court upholds consecutive sentences adding up to 90 years before parole eligibility for juve killer of three"]

"I can understand how those troubled by these SCOTUS decisions are not troubled by efforts to limit their application." Good insight.

Lawyers are the stupidest of people. Ivy grads are the stupidest of lawyers. The Supreme Court is the stupidest of Ivy grads, compounded by an acculturation to the arrogant, Washington rent seeking, self dealing culture. Supreme Court decisions have been lawless, unmitigated disasters, from the Civil War set off by Dred Scott to the American Holocaust of Roe v Wade. Every one has been a violation of Article I Section 1 of the constitution, giving law making power to the legislature.

Its decisions may be considered to have no external validation. They are the subjective, invalid feelings of stupid, East Coast elite, know nothing lawyers. All are biased, not in favor of criminals, but in favor of lawyer rent seeking and of big government, the industry of Washington. At best, they should be deemed advisory. No federal marshal will come to enforce any. That would require agreement with a decision by the executive branch. If any does, taser him, expel him from the state. Nothing will happen.

In Miller, the Court cancelled the decisions of more accountable state legislatures. The decision contains future forecasting, based on nothing, a finding of a 5% difference in myelination of the frontal lobes, continuing to age 30. That minuscule difference has not been tied to anything in behavior. Teens commit fewer violent crimes than adults. Teen crime is dropping. Adult crime is rising.

It is also illogical and harmful to the defendant. Say the mass murderer becomes a priest, and a saint. He qualifies for canonization by his good deeds and verified miracles. The flaw in logic is that his improvement has been within the structure of prison. Release would end the achievements. A diabetic was brought out of a coma with aggressive insulin treatment. He has been doing well for years, with no side effects on insulin. Let's stop the insulin since he is old and his blood sugars have been great, the Court is saying. That is its "feeling." No. Both conditions are defects, and will never improve, since a function is missing. Prison structure is the insulin that allowed the defendant to thrive.

The Magical Land of Progressitopia

There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much wished it could be. The former were called the Trads, and the latter, the Progs. It was the Progs who held dominion over this great land, and so it was they who wrote, or re-wrote, her history.

Now, in this kingdom we must remember that Christianity, or “Christianism” as it would later be called (long since forbidden), along with similar such mythological and dogmatic phantasms, remained the foremost, if not the sole, thorn in the Progs’ collectivist butt. Any and all thought or practice that might, in any way, undermine full realization of, and strict adherence to, progressive thinking was, therefore, strictly verboten.

In fact, the Trads, the traditionalist remnant, had proven singularly responsible for the famines, Civil War II and Progressitopia’s endlessly spiraling state of affairs, both foreign and domestic – a state that, notwithstanding all predictions to the contrary, somehow became significantly and enigmatically worse subsequent to the onset of progressive governance.

There was, however, one exception to this rule: Islam. Shadowing the glorious dawn of progressive reign came, from o’er the sea, a mighty and fearsome caliphate. The Muslim faith spread like wildfire. Recruitment efforts were buoyed, and appreciably so, in that, while yet a loving and peaceful religion, any skeptic or “infidel” who failed to convert was either immediately raped and enslaved or summarily beheaded, stoned, shot or blown limb-from-limb.

Whereas Progressitopians, with their one-child-only abortion mandate, stopped reproducing altogether, adherents to the religion of peace rutted like rabbits. Every corner of the globe became thickly populated by devotees of the most praised Prophet Muhammad – peace be upon him.

As global violence and jihad spiked, it seemed for a time that Progressitopia and the Islamic caliphate would be one another’s undoing.

And then something extraordinary happened.

The King of Progressitopia, a brave and handsome man most wise, with visor of gold and scepter of 3-iron in hand, bowed before the great caliph and presented a series of official mea culpas on behalf of his land. He prayed Allah’s forgiveness for incurring his wrath – just desserts for centuries of Progressitopian Imperialism.

And so these two seemingly incompatible kingdoms, with wholly polarized worldviews, agreed to forge an incongruous socio-political partnership – an “Islamo-Progressive Alliance.” The alliance was built upon the maxim: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” The common enemy, of course, had formed its own unholy alliance: the “Zio-Christian Axis of Evil.”

And so it soon came to pass that independent Islamic settlements cropped-up throughout Progressitopia. The Michganistan Territory became, for all intents and purposes, Mecca to the Western Hemisphere.

Presently, the Islamo-Progressive Alliance found itself enjoying a comparatively peaceful seven-year truce. Apart from a weekly handful of suicide bombings, mass shootings and random beheadings, carried out chiefly against Progressitopia’s women and children, things were simply capital.

But then, trouble in paradise – economic turmoil. Toward the middle of the new millennium’s third decade, Progressitopia’s national debt ballooned to over 60 trillion. For many years, Trad economists and “debt alarmists” had warned that Progressitopia’s skyrocketing debt and deficits were unsustainable. These anti-progressive thinkers openly questioned the progressive strategy of taxing and spending one’s way to prosperity.

They felt, irrationally so, that such approach represented, as one provocative naysayer phrased it, “an epically stupid and patently impossible self-contradiction. No more can one spend his way out of debt than can he cheat his way out of adultery.”

Another fundamentalist cynic offered a less hurtful, yet no less sensationalist analogy: “When a bridge’s infrastructure becomes unsustainable,” he alleged, “it will ultimately collapse if its integrity is compromised to the degree that it can no longer support some burgeoning mass. So too it goes, apparently, as relates integrity to politicians, governments and national debt.”

Right-wing propaganda aside, Progressitopia’s economy did, nonetheless, unexpectedly collapse for reasons ultimately deemed inconclusive.

Now, as heretofore told, and as go the history books, Christianism had, from time immemorial, been the very bane of free-thinking humanity’s existence. This hateful mythology had been largely to blame, in concert with its sister-faith, Judaism, and its insufferable cousin, conservatism, an equally curious mental disorder, for all of the world’s wars, slavery, racism, sexism, disease, capitalism, global warming and, most onerously perhaps, gluten sensitivity.

Moreover, both Christianism and conservatism were ultimately determined to have been the catalyst for the systemic phobia outbreak that inexplicably began around the turn of the century. First there was homophobia, an irrational, chronic and debilitating fear of the square-hole-round-peg people, or, as this flamboyant troupe, so enamored with acronymic wordplay, preferred to be called: the “SHRP community.” Since SHRPs displayed impeccable fashion sense and a flair for the fabulous, Neanderthalic Trads were, most naturally, terrified by them.

Then came Islamophobia, the irrational fear of having one’s head lopped off, followed by transphobia, the fear of naked men in ladies’ locker rooms, polyphobia, the fear of communal rompathons, as well as an all-inclusive litany of other phobias relating to myriad sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions.

Next, there emerged the great progressiphobia pandemic of ’27. This involved an equally absurd, though no less universal, fear of progressive thought, practice or people. This, for a time, threatened to halt Progressitopia’s progressing progress altogether.

Finally, there occurred a worldwide outbreak of phobia-phobia. This was, of course, a condition delineated by the once again irrational denial that any of the aforementioned phobias had “any basis in reality whatsoever,” but, rather, were “simply ham-fisted pejoratives intended to marginalize one’s political opposition.”

But, alas, we must for now part ways. My gluten-free frittata grows cold.

Arkanabar Ilarsadin #fundie arkanabar.blogspot.com

I could have put this post up at Capes 'n' Babes, but that's not what Chris Flick's website is for, and he'd have every reason and right not to post it. He has the site mainly to sell his artwork, and my countercultural Catholic argumentation could reasonably alienate his customers. I couldn't wish that on him. I'm going to ask my two readers not to go and gunk up his site with a flamewar, either.

But as to why that's not good, I think we could learn from the lesson of Chesterton's Gate -- the idea that, before we go to reform an institution, we ought to understand why it is the way it is. I don't think gay marriage advocates have any understanding of why marriage was the way it was. Nor have they found or built any structures to do what marriage was originally meant to do.

The function of marriage has historically been to protect the children which are its natural result. It provides them with a bond with their father, and a incentives for him to protect them. If your spouse dies, then finding and marrying a replacement can be better for your children than staying a widow/er, which is why it's reasonable to allow people to remarry after the death of a spouse. Even if a woman has aged to menopause, it's easy to see how her entering marriage can be good for any children involved.

The giant blows against marriage were contraception and divorce. Divorce especially does grave harm to children, and remarriage is very hard on them, probably far harder than in cases of widowing. Much worse is when Mom just shacks up after divorcing Dad. Children are at greatest risk of sexual assault from mom's live-in boyfriend.

Homosexual marriage does not naturally result in children. Its advocates, like those for divorce and contraception, seem to either not consider the harm that their pet project does to children (which would include being in denial about it), or may actually hate children. Their arguments against these concerns vary from "What could it hurt?" to "Shut up."

I really don't think the SCOTUS considered these things when they struck down DOMA. I think there's compelling government interest in protecting marriage -- doing so gives children the best chance going forward that they can have. In addition to affirming DOMA, they could consider doing away with contraception (which promotes infidelity, which is ALSO very bad for the children) and divorce (which is the result of contraception, and even worse for children). They are far more important than the easy access to the benefits of marriage for gays (and to which they have alternative means of access).

Sen. Jenifer Branning #fundie rawstory.com

The state legislature in Mississippi has now passed a bill to allow both public employees and private businesses to refuse to take part in gay marriages — but a whole lot of heterosexual people might be surprised at what’s in the written text here.

The bill repeatedly states that “the state government shall not take any discriminatory action” against a person or religious organization for refusing to take part in objectionable marriages, adoptions, or certain other services (more on that later).

The bill’s usage of the phrase “discriminatory action,” however, is more like what laws in most states would describe as an action under anti-discrimination laws, such as “Impose, levy, or assess a monetary fine, fee, penalty or injunction,” as well as other issues involving tax statuses, professional licenses, and state contracts.

But as this bill is actually written, though, a whole lot of people in Mississippi besides sexual minorities could face discrimination, too — like the vast numbers of people who have had sex outside of marriage.

Not to worry, though — they say they’re really just thinking about the gays.

As reported in the Jackson Clarion-Ledger: “Opponents of the bill say the bill could allow discrimination of those in the LGBT community and possibly single mothers, but [state Sen. Jenifer Branning, the lead Senate sponsor] said the bill deals only with same-sex marriage.”

In addition to social services such as marriage and adoption, the bill protects any private business who refuses to provide “services, accommodations, facilities, goods, or privileges for a purpose related to the solemnization, formation, celebration, or recognition of any marriage, based upon or in a manner consistent with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act.”

So what is Section 2, and what are its ramifications? The actual text of the bill states:

“SECTION 2. The sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions protected by this act are the belief or conviction that:
“(a) Marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman;
“(b) Sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage; and
“(c) Male (man) or female (woman) refer to an individual’s immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth.”

And from here, so much mischief could be done. Because while the bill specifies numerous social services provided by either state employees or private religious organizations — marriage and adoption, mainly — in all cases an employer or organization is broadly protected for having “a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act.”

As written, despite the sponsor’s statement that the bill deals only with same-sex marriage, a government employee could refuse to grant a marriage license to a couple who have had premarital sex — and who knows, they might even be able to ask the question, too.

So why include a section for people who believe that sex is reserved only for marriage? Most likely, that clause might have been intended to relate to other sections of the bill involving adoption and foster care services, as well as fertility services. But the key point here is that as written, any person could be refused a marriage from a government employee on any or all of the bases under Section 2.

And in other areas, when the bill here also specifies “psychological, counseling, or fertility services based upon a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act,” a therapist might even potentially refuse counseling to a person whose personal morality does not measure up to the standard set under Section 2.

Some people even think that this bill could even authorize that “a corporation could fire a woman for wearing pants.” But this author respectfully disagrees, based on the full legal context of the relevant language.

What the act actually says is:

“The state government shall not take any discriminatory action against a person wholly or partially on the basis that the person establishes sex-specific standards or policies concerning employee or student dress or grooming, or concerning access to restrooms, spas, baths, showers, dressing rooms, locker rooms, or other intimate facilities or settings, based upon or in a manner consistent with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act.”

Since sex-specific dress codes at a business are discussed here in relation to Section 2, what this actually refers to is forbidding a transgender person from dressing according to their internal identity — not just any old matter of a woman wearing pants. (After all, a person’s mode of dress has nothing directly to do with marriage or sexuality — thus leaving gender identity as the only category left from the section.)

The law also forbids “discriminatory action” by the state against a person who “declines to participate in the provision of treatments, counseling, or surgeries related to sex reassignment or gender identity transitioning” — but on the bright side, a clause soon afterward says that this shall not be construed to allow the denial of emergency medical services for sickness or injury.

So a transgender person who gets a broken leg is still to be provided medical care — at least on paper.

Ted Baehr #fundie wnd.com

It’s fashionable to promote multiculturalism in the name of diversity.

According to the most avid supporters, “We all just need to get along. We need to get over our differences and live in peace.”

The problem with this is that it assumes there is no right or wrong. It assumes all beliefs are of equal value. Christianity and Islam are equals. Free enterprise and socialism are equals. Everyone just needs to accept that others beliefs are of equal value to their own.

Such thinking is like the AIDS virus.The human body is designed to fight off colds and flues and to heal from various wounds. Attacks on the health of the body are spotted and biological combat commences. The AIDS virus turns off the body’s defense mechanism. AIDS stands for “Immune Deficiency Syndrome.” It tells the body, “You’re OK,” when it’s not OK.

Multiculturalism says, “Don’t worry about a little socialism. It won’t hurt you.” It says, “Don’t be a stickler about God’s laws. Other people don’t believe them, and they’re just fine.” It says, “Don’t harp about traditional families. Be modern. Accept anything in the name of progress and diversity.”

The problem is, there is such a thing as good and evil. Good is good for your health, and evil is bad for you. If you’re attacked by something evil, you need good to come and defeat evil.

June 23, 1940, Adolf Hitler triumphantly toured Paris, France. What if the British and Americans had considered this acceptable – the “modern” Europe? What would the world be like today?

To teach children that Christianity is no better than Islam, or atheism, is no different than saying Winston Churchill is no better than Adolf Hitler. It lowers our defenses against evil.

If you wish to be healthy, there are right things to eat and wrong things to eat. If you wish to live in a civil society, there are right things to do and wrong things to do. Civility is not enhanced by vulgarity. If multiculturalism expects you to be fine with anyone who wishes to spew vulgarity, then you’ll wind up with a less civil society. What you actually wind up with is the dying ruins of culture and civilization. People who prefer cordiality will seek neighborhoods where cordiality is the norm.

America is deathly ill. It has a national debt of $17 trillion and a prison population 10 times what it was 50 years ago. Over 40 percent of children are now born to single mothers, and most of them are on government assistance. Instances of mass murder were almost nonexistent 50 years ago. They come now with increasing regularity.

We seem unable to cure our illness because we refuse to admit that sex outside of marriage is wrong and that families headed by a father and mother are best. Instead of working to heal these problems, we seek to ignore them and condone the illness. We get sicker and sicker while attempting to redefine marriage and family to be more inclusive – multicultural.

Arizona Legislature #fundie azcentral.com

The Arizona Legislature has passed a controversial religion bill that is again thrusting Arizona into the national spotlight in a debate over discrimination.

House Bill 2153/Senate Bill 1062, written by the conservative advocacy group Center for Arizona Policy and the Christian legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom, would allow individuals to use religious beliefs as a defense against a lawsuit.

...

Proponents say the bill would, for example, protect a wedding photographer who declined to take photos of a same-sex couple’s commitment ceremony due to the photographer’s religious beliefs.

“We are trying to protect people’s religious liberties,” said Rep. Steve Montenegro, R-Litchfield Park. “We don’t want the government coming in and forcing somebody to act against their religious sacred faith beliefs or having to sell out if you are a small-business owner.”

West Virginia delegate Eric Porterfield #fundie lgbtqnation.com

A Republican legislator said that he would drown his own kids is if they turned out to be gay.

West Virginia delegate Eric Porterfield appeared on WVVA, an NBC affiliate, to talk about homophobic comments he made last week, where he said that LGBTQ people are “a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan.”

He wore a red MAGA cap – along with a shirt and tie – during the interview.

The reporter asked him what he would do if his son or daughter came out as gay.

“Well, I would dress my daughter first, as I would take her for a pedicure, I’d take her to get her nails done, and see if she could swim,” Porterfield said, smiling.

“If it was my son, I would probably take him hunting, I would take him fishing, then I’d see if he could swim,” Porterfield, still smiling.

The reporter asked him to clarify. “I just want to make sure they could swim,” he repeated when questioned, continuing to grin.

She again asked him to clarify, and he said, “That’s it. I’d take them out to do activities.” He was still smiling, as if threatening to kill his own children were cute.

Last week, the West Virginia legislature was debating a bill that would have banned cities and counties from protecting LGBTQ people in their anti-discrimination laws, like Tennessee, North Carolina, and Arkansas currently do.

During the floor debate, Porterfield said that anti-discrimination laws were “bigoted,” “intolerant,” “discriminatory… nonsense” and “a travesty… against people who have either religious convictions or who don’t want to run their business the way a socialist-left agenda wants us to run it.”

He also used the word “faggot” during the debate while discussing Milo Yiannopoulos.

His state’s Republican party leadership denounced his comments, saying that they were “hateful, hurtful, and do not reflect the values of our country.”

Ok luckily i was never bullied but there was one guy i went to school with for a year that got bullied pretty badly. Now I would have loved to feel piity for him and help him but you just couldn't. It was like he was asking to be bullied. He was quite a tall guy (don't know how tall exactly but minimum 1.85m for sure) and very weird and nerdy. He was 17 years old but acted no older than a 5 year old would have and had absolutely no social knowledge. He would sit or stand extremely near to you, so that you would feel like your personal space was invaded. He would talk very loudly in moments where it was totally unnecessary. He would listen to your conversations and just say something extremely stupid just to be able to participate even tough you didn't want him to and if he couldn't listen he'd just ask what you were talking about. You could tell he was desperatly trying to make friends but his behaviour was just counterproductive. He told me on the second day we met that he had suicidal thoughts as a kindergardener... This is not really something you tell a stranger just totally out of the blue. Apparently i was too nice to him so he started following me around to the point that it got really annoying that me and my friend would try to actively get rid of him by telling him we'd meet at a place and go to a totally different one. The thing is we did this multiple times but he just wouldn't get the hint until my friend told why he didn't eat lunch with that other socially awkward guy and then he left and we finally had lunch without him. Don't get me wrong i tried to defend him at first by telling my friends not to be this mean to him but you just couldn't help him he was just the perfect victim and on top of that he acted like asked for it so it went from the point where i didn't bother defending him anymore to the point i actually joined the bullying (this took almost the whole year i went to school with him). This guy had no self-esteem at all. How would he? He was probably bullied his whole life. He couldn't even stand in front of the class and do a presentation without having to restart every sentence and almost starting to cry. We all laughed at him for that and tried to film him unnotices whenever he had a presentation. Even our french teacher, that actually is a very nice lady, couldn't help but laugh at his presentation, mainly because of his pronounciation which was quite bad. He had a overly strict mom and his dad didn't have the couage to speak up to her. He was freaking 17 years old but his mother still commanded him around like he was 5. She'd prohibit him to play computer games because of reasons like he hadn't emptied the dishwasher and worst of all: He would tell everyone about it exposing even more thing for everybody to pick on him. To be honest I don't feel bad about what i did. I actually tried to be nice to that guy but he could just destroy everything and make you hate him again. I tried. I tried to be nice but i couldn't so I eventually joined because he was annoying.

[Re. Laura Schlessinger saying "nigger" repeatedly on her radio show.]

When blacks use racial slurs against one another, they do it with a smirk, a sneer and an air of superiority. It's something they can do and you can't. It's their inside joke. Breaking the rules and getting away with it. Yet they can be absolutely HORRIFIED when Laura Schlessinger uses a slur. It's the worst thing they ever heard. They will be marked for generations.

Creating and maintaining racial slurs is the best thing to ever happen to black people. Without it there wouldn't be a weapon to use. Now of course, they have progressed, with the assistance of white liberals, to use any criticism whatsoever. Did you say the mongrel president was incompetent? Racism. Did you criticize any black person for anything at all? Racism. Now they got Laura Schlessinger, who can hardly hurt their feelings. She's sort of like getting hit with a down pillow.

The left has been after her for decades. Her unpolitically correct views on sex, marriage and family made her a target 20 years ago. Now they have the big guns, racism. Piffft.

RippedRichAndIncel #sexist reddit.com

Are Incels the most reviled members of society ever?

(TL:DR below if required)

Inceldom is not something those under its banner can control, any more than a breast cancer patient should be lambasted for letting herself get sick, and yet, only the former is subject to hatred and ridicule of such a kind as deemed, not only permissible, but encouraged.

Throughout history, there have been many examples of oppressed and reviled peoples, so let's take a look at a few and compare them to the plight of the incel.

Women

The normie favourite. Truly women have suffered unfairly throughout history, right? Surely they're still unequal today and in need of the mighty fist of feminism to even come close to man's privilege, right?
Currently, in first world countries, there is no group more privileged than woman: to suggest a biological difference between the sexes means you're a misogynistic pig. Criticism of any kind, if directed at a woman, is rendered not only moot, but considered to be a vitriolic attack of society's special sneauxphlakes.

There is an expectation that women deserve to be treated better than men, which is propogated by both men and women alike: men should always hold the door open for women; men are expected to pay for dinner; men are expected to be the providers for the family (if women want to work, they're encouraged, but men receive no such encouragement, it's merely expected of them); women are viewed as innocent and preferential in legal disputes (97% of alimony payments are made by men, women win exclusive custody 79% of the time, and women who make false rape claims are believed in spite of the notion that the accused should be considered innocent until proven guilty.)

How about the historical treatment of women? Traditionally, women have also been coddled by society. When men were required to hunt and kill to supply for small hunter-gatherer societies, women were spared from this and left safety away from any danger. Up until very recently, women were also spared from the horrors of war (despite Hillary's absurd claims) it has always been the duty of men to defend, en mass, the rights and safety of their women back home. Women have historically been treated well, even in great societies like ancient Greece where men recognized women's inferiority and preferred the company of other men, women were treated well and respected, many members of Greek society worshiping the female gods more than any other.

And in spite of all this; in spite of every advantage afforded to them, women still want more. Now, in front of the wall street bull, a little girl stands defiant. Why? As a symbol of strength against a non-existent wage gap. Society propogates a myth to make women feel better, and then builds upon that myth with symbols of strength to make women feel better still. Clearly, then, women are not so disadvantaged.

The blacks and the Jews

The two Oppression All-stars. There can be no denying that western countries have, historically, treated black people poorly. Colonialism and the ensuing slavery were clear and systematic breaches of the human rights of millions of people.

However, slavery is not exclusive to blacks. In fact, blacks were very often either the sellers, or the buyers of slaves. The word slave refers, originally, to the slavic people who were frequently forced into slavery in the middle ages. Slavery is not and was not exclusive to blacks, and yet, it is blacks who benefit from its having happened.

Affirmative action is hugely prevalent in America. Black students receive black-exclusive scholarships and receiving greater encouragement and support than non-black students.

Of course, racism existed beyond the abolishment of slavery, and still exists today. However, there have always been those who have stood up to racism. Most famous of all was Martin Luther King Jr who is universally praised for his work helping African-Americans, but he is not alone. Many people have dedicated their lives to helping blacks, some have even lost their lives in so doing: but no one has done this for incels. Incels, in spite of the hatred and discrimination they receive, are not beneficiaries of support or affirmative action in anyway. Imagine the response you would receive by going to /r/peopleofcolour and telling them they deserve to be hated or discriminated against. You would be banned sightwide for extreme prejudice, and yet, to do the same on /r/incels is considered amusing and fair. There are clear correlations between height or attractiveness and success, and yet society turns a blind eye to incels' plight. So while it is the case that African-Americans were the object of much discrimination, there has been a significant reversal and now much is done in their favour. Incels, however, are recipients only of hatred: no one wishes to aid their cause.

Likewise, the Jews and their oppression in Nazi Germany might be a favoured counter-argument to the assertion that incels are the most universally reviled societal group, however, this argument falls flat as well. It is of course true that the Jews were systematically despised and considered sub-human. This fact they share with incels.

However, there is a clear difference: When the Nazis considered the Jews sub-human, the world went to war to defend them. When the world considers incels to be subhuman, people just laugh at their plight and go on, encouraging their subhuman treatment. It is clear then which of the two is the more systematically despised.

Other [mental] illnesses

Inceldom, like race or sexuality, is genetic. If it can be resolved by weight loss, or lifting more, it's not inceldom: it's volcedlom. True inceldom is incurable and predetermined.

However, inceldom is not treated the same way as other illnesses at all. Let's take a close look at the subtle distinctions in societal treatment.

Cancer is, in many of its forms, impossible to prevent with the decisions one makes. I'm sorry normies, but that means you can't tell poor Timmy to shower his tumor away. People that suffer from cancer are praised for their bravery; they are the beneficiaries of myriad charities, as well as the objects of ad campaigns and propaganda. Just like inceldom, cancer is a terrible disease, but only one of the diseased individuals will receive love and compassion while he suffers; the other will be taunted as he suffers in solitude.

Furthermore, if we look at how people, reddit especially, treats depressed people, we see an even cleared example of the double standard that derives from pure hatred of incels. Can you imagine the fervent rage that reddit would unleash if someone told a depression sufferer to 'just stop being sad'? And yet, that is the advice incels receive daily. We suffer the same, and yet, while others are supported, we are condemned.

TL:DR - plz read, it's not like you're too busy banging sluts. If you are: Incels might just be the most universally hated and discriminated against members of society. In spite of this, and where other hated sects have been assisted, incels are ridiculed and hurt further for merely existing. There is no help because they are deemed unworthy of it. It is not seen as noble to fight for incels rights as it might to fight for the rights of women or minorities, so we must suffer, because to propagate our suffering is seen not as cruel, but as just.

Miranda Pacchiana #dunning-kruger usatoday.com

(submitter note: don’t know if ya’ll actually read the news of Adam Savage’s sexual abuse allegations in a couple of post back but here is what I’ve found; while I’m the sort that believe women when they claim to be raped or abused sexually, there are limit but do not want to past judgement of her until ya’ll determine if it should be here or not)

'MythBusters' star Adam Savage's sister accuses him of sexual abuse when they were kids

Former "MythBusters" co-host Adam Savage has been accused of sexual abuse by his sister.
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Westchester Supreme Court, Miranda Pacchiana says she was "sexually abused as a child by her brother.

Documents state that from 1976 to 1979, when they lived together in Sleepy Hollow, New York, Savage, now 52, "would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse."


At the time of the alleged abuse, Pacchiana was 7 to 10 years old and Savage was 9 to 12, according to the documents.

Adam Savage of "MythBusters," seen here at 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, has been accused of sexual abuse by his sister.
The lawsuit states Pacchiana was "horrified and traumatized" by the abuse and seeks to "recover for the emotional and physical suffering she incurred and to make sure that no other child is forced to suffer the abuse and physical and mental trauma she felt and continues to feel."
In a statement to USA TODAY provided by attorney Andrew Brettler, Savage denied the allegations.

"While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end. For many years, she has relentlessly and falsely attacked me and other members of my family to anyone that will listen," the statement says.

"By spreading numerous untrue stories about us in pursuit of a financial bonanza, she has tortured our entire family and estranged herself from all of us. I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all." Brettler also provided a statement from Savage and Pacchiana's mother, Karen Savage.

"It makes me very sad to say this, but my daughter suffers from severe mental health challenges, and it’s devastating that she’s putting Adam and our entire family through this," she said. "Adam is a good man, and I support him completely."

Savage's science series "MythBusters" ran from 2003 to 2016 on the Discovery Channel, and it was later revived for a run on the Science Channel.

David Beuhner #fundie koaa.com

A local pastor is causing a national stir equating homosexuals to cannibals, child molesters, rapists, and murderers. Pastor David Beuhner of Christ the King Church in northern El Paso County is calling for discrimination against the gay community as state lawmakers revisit marriage equality this session.

"If we embrace homosexuality, we'll destroy society, we'll destroy families, we'll destroy everything. It's not just that God hates homosexuals, there's a reason why he hates it." That's the line causing national outrage from the LGBT community; Pastor David Beuhner took to the airwaves early this month on his radio show 'Generations' in what he says is a last-ditch effort to save our society from falling off the moral cliff.

"If you break natural laws-- you say you don't believe in gravity, you jump off a building, you're gonna die. Homosexuality has consequences and God designed those consequences," Beuhner told News 5's Jacqui Heinrich in an exclusive interview explaining his on-air remarks.

As the Colorado legislature reopens the issue of marriage equality this session, Beuhner is speaking out not just against civil unions, but calling for discrimination against gays, equating them to cannibals, rapists, and child molesters. "The word of god is quite clear. He's destroyed every culture that has embraced homosexuality. The sin is similar to that of cannibalism and child molestation in the sense that it's a sin against society," Beuhner said. "I'm calling for discrimination against adulterers, rapists, murderers, homosexuals. Yes, we must discriminate as a society."

It's a view members of the local LGBT community find insulting but not surprising. "This is just par for the course for individuals that try to put fear into the LGBT community and spread hate," Charles Irwin, director of the Colorado Springs Pride Center told News 5.

Beuhner says his rhetoric isn't hate but love, warning gays of the destruction they'll bring to all if they don't repent. He's even calling on lawmakers to remove homosexuals from society, saying they'll also pay the price at the golden gates if they don't fall in line. "God's law to the civil magistrate in terms of homosexuality says you should remove the abomination from the land, so that's God's instruction to the people who work up in the capitol who make our laws. That's what they're going to be held accountable for," he said.

Irwin says this won't shake the LGBT community's spirit or work at the capitol, and he doesn't blame Christians for perpetuating the LGBT struggle. "86% [of Christians] don't believe that discrimination is good and they're not going to do that. They're for equality and it's just an old concept and an old way of thinking and it's becoming a minority," Irwin said.

Top Ten Anti-Christian Acts of 2014

2014 was another wild and frustrating year for American Christians as the threats to our liberties and values are increasing. Here are the results of our online poll of the Top Ten Anti-Christian Acts of 2014. It’s not as predicable as you might think.

Rather than getting lost in the trees and not recognizing the forest, lets look at the larger trends revealed in the poll, and they are disconcerting.

Political correctness about social issues, (sexual deviancy and abortion) has been institutionalized publicly and privately. Biblically faithful Christians and their institutions are being pressured to compromise their values and accept arbitrary, tyrannical, secular ethics or feel the wrath of politicians, the courts, the academy, the media, and business.

Churches are being coerced to subsidize abortions, a pastor is on trial for telling the truth, ministers are bullied by a tyrannical mayor, and Christ is continuing to be blasphemed on network TV.

This is a sobering set of facts, but ones that ought to stir us to action, not resignation. As we pray and act, we do so in faith that God can turn us back to him. The means He uses our bold, counter-cultural voices of Truth. Christ calls us back to reality and to respect for His ordained institution of marriage and the sanctity of life created in His image and freedom to declare the whole counsel of God’s Word.

Share this list with your family and friends. We MUST engage in concerted prayer, evangelism and seek FIRST God’s Kingdom and His righteousness. America is ripe for either God’s justice or a heaven sent revival.

1. Christian colleges are now facing a new threat to their institutions... allow homosexual behavior or be stripped of accreditation. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges is threatening to strip Gordon College, of their accreditation unless the college accepts “homosexual practice” by it’s students.

2. Federal Judge, Michael Posner, ignored Supreme Court precedence and allowed a frivolous lawsuit to move forward against American minster, Scott Lively. Lively is a minister and an attorney and was invited by the Ugandan legislature to help them create laws to protect their society from the homosexual movement. Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), hauled Rev. Lively to US Federal Court under international law accusing him of “crimes against humanity.”

3. Annise Parker, the lesbian Houston mayor, ordered city’s churches to turn over sermons, any e-mails, text messages, and other communications that talk about homosexuality, gender identity issues, or Annise Parker herself. The pastors were targeted after organizing descent against a rbill passed by the city council that allowed transgender individuals to use the bathroom of their choice. After news spread throughout the Country, Parker’s attorney’s dropped the subpoenas.

4. HGTV canceled a new program, “Flip It Forward”, because of the stars support of traditional marriage. The series followed the life of two brothers, David and Jason Benham, as they helped struggling families buy fixer-upper homes and transform them into forever homes. Both brothers have been vocal about their support for traditional marriage.

5. The Girl Scouts USA introduced family planning into their curriculum in partnership with Planned Parenthood. The Girls Scouts also tout the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, as an “eloquent woman”.

6. California churches are now required to cover the costs of abortions as “basic health care.” The state legislature is trying to exploit a “loop-hole” in the national healthcare law for the pro-abortion agenda.

7. Mozilla CEO, Brendan Eich, was forced to resign from the huge tech company he founded after it was discovered he donated $1,000 towards legislation to uphold traditional marriage in California. Proposition 8 was a ballet initiative in support of traditional marriage that was approved by a majority of California voters, but was later ruled unconstitutional by the California Supreme Court.

8. American tax dollars are still being used to pay for abortions. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) in Washington, found that at least 1,036 plans use your tax dollars to fund abortion-on-demand.

9. A California male high school teacher returned as a woman from spring break. 56 year-old married father, Gary Sconce, has been a teacher at the rural Yosemite High School for 24 years. But after a letter was sent to the parents, he returned from the break as “Karen Adell Scot.”

10. “I only wish the Virgin would’ve had an abortion,” was belted out in a song by musical guest, Kristeen Young, on CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. “The song,” according to Young, “is about the centuries of religious persecution of women.”

Congratulations to the niglet who deleted himself and the bullying niglet that drove him to self-deletion. We are spared the deleted niglet becoming a future Apefirmative Action employee utterly incompetent at his job but hired over more qualified humans. The world is a better place simply because he will no longer be part of it. Another niglet killed by his own brutal species, and the planet rejoices.

Steve Deace #fundie barbwire.com

Since our Leftist media seem anxious to have a conversation about theology, I say we oblige. This week in their trolling of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker presents a panel discussion on whether or not President Barack Hussein Obama really is a Christian.

Although Mr. Walker is the son of a Baptist preacher, the Republican is not the most qualified individual to determine who is and isn’t a Christian. The “good news” (pardon the pun) is I know someone who is.

Even better, he’s very much alive and kicking as we speak. And he’s so eager for his opinion to be known on such matters that he preserved a written record of all his thoughts and deeds, which has become the greatest best-seller in history.

Who is more qualified to consult on who is and isn’t a Christian than Jesus Christ?

When I asked him what he thought, Jesus made it quite clear that President Obama is not a Christian. And he was also kind enough to give me some quotes I could pass on to ya’ll.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

Mr. Obama has referred to Islam’s Koran as “holy” (which means a state of completeness/perfection set apart from the sinfulness of man), and Muhammad as a “prophet” (which means truth-teller).

However, on the most important point of them all Islam and Christianity contradict each other. Islam teaches that Jesus wasn’t even crucified, which means he wasn’t resurrected. But the Bible teaches there is no Christianity without the crucifixion and resurrection (or what Christians celebrate on Good Friday and Easter). These are irreconcilable views. So right away these two religions are incompatible, and at least one of them is lying.

Christianity and Islam could both be false, but they can’t both be true. No sincere Christian would elevate something that distorts and diminishes the fundamental moment of Christianity as “holy.” Nor would they bestow the title of “prophet” upon someone who has spread a false message about Christ.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 7:21)

Just because someone claims to be a Christian doesn’t mean they are one. It’s not like Mr. Obama would be the first politician to claim to be something he’s not.

“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’ and you do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46)

Jesus commands us not to lie, yet Mr. Obama has lied repeatedly (“if you like your current health care plan you can keep it,” as just one example). Jesus commands us not to murder, yet Mr. Obama is the most pro-murder president we have ever had (including voting against a bill to protect babies who survive abortions while in the Illinois State Legislature). Jesus says marriage is between a man and a woman, and we are created male and female. Yet Mr. Obama promotes redefining marriage and so-called transgenderism.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” (John 13:34)

Jesus gave this commandment to his followers, yet under Mr. Obama we see Christians consistently targeted for their beliefs (Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-a, Little Sisters of the Poor, military personnel, and numerous other Christians who refuse to comply with Obama-imposed immorality). Why would a president who’s a Christian use his power to consistently target other Christians?

“For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” (Luke 9:26)

From excluding references to Christ on the official White House Christmas card, to referring to Jesus as “a son of God” (when Jesus claimed he was the only son of God), Mr. Obama has gone out of his way on numerous occasions to deny the supremacy of Christ. What kind of Christian would deny the power and glory of his own savior?

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17)

Mr. Obama‘ spiritual mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, was Mr. Obama’s pastor for 20 years. He baptized Mr. Obama and his daughters, and officiated his wedding to the first lady. Through the years, Mr. Wright taught many things from his pulpit like anti-Semitism, black liberation theology, racism, conspiracy theory, and Marxism.

[...]

Jesus says sincere faith comes only by the hearing of his words. With Mr. Wright preaching nearly everything but Jesus‘ actual words, how could Mr. Obama come to sincere faith in such a church?

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.” (Matthew 7:15-20)

Given everything you’ve already read, would you say Mr. Obama’s tree bears good fruit or bad fruit? Besides, I’m mystified as to why our Leftist media, which bows at the altar of secularism, is so concerned about Mr. Obama’s religion? Unless they’re hoping to re-brand Christianity in Mr. Obama’s Marxist image.

[...]

For now my work here is finished. On the other hand, the work of God-haters who will viciously demagogue what I just wrote, without supplying any rational basis for their assertions there’s anything remotely Christian about Obama (thus proving my point), I’m sure is just beginning. Why the same Leftists who vehemently loathe Christianity want their progressive hero to be labeled a Christian is beyond me. Regardless, Jesus has a final word for them as well:

“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul, but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell.” (Matthew 10:28)

Anthony Smith #wingnut #racist #fundie #conspiracy sign.org

The rioting in Minnesota is the result of a perfect storm of liberal progressive policies and cultural Marxism. In fact, the rioting and creative destruction is the expected and desired outcome of years of communist ideological subversion, specifically through diversity politics and mass immigration. Ultimately, the root cause is the result of the failure of multiple Roman Catholic Popes to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as requested by Our Lady at Fatima.

Sound extreme? Take a closer look at the facts and then decide yourself.

The (Deliberate) Transformation of Minnesota

Minnesota has a long history of Democratic party politics. It was the only state that did not vote for Ronald Reagan in either of his two presidential campaigns. The Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor party (“DFL”) was formed in 1944 and has its roots in socialism. It has a history of on-again, off-again relationships with communists and modern socialists such as Bernie Sanders. In the 2020 Democratic Presidential primary in Minnesota, Sanders received 29.89% of the vote – second only to Joe Biden. Socialism is not a marginal movement in Minnesota.

Minneapolis was historically a city of predominately white Christian citizens. The percentage of white citizens in Minneapolis remained at 99% from 1910 until 1950. Non-whites started coming to the city in large numbers in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1980, the percentage dropped below 90% to 87%. By 1990, the city was more than 20 percent non-white. By 2019, only 60% of the population of Minneapolis was white.

The early migration may have been tempted by Minnesota’s generous welfare programs. That does not account, however, for the massive influx in recent decades. That change has largely been the result of the immigrant resettlement programs, which have deliberately placed large refugee populations in Minnesota communities. As recently in 2018, the census bureau reported that since 2010 populations of people of color had increased faster in Minnesota than the rest of the nation.

There is no natural reason for people from Sub-Saharan African to migrate to Minnesota. Yet, the state has 52,333 people who report Somali ancestry — the largest concentration of Somalis in America — according to data from 2017. This is not a stable group of people trying to assimilate into American life — more men and boys from the Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.
[…]
Minnesota was merely a petri dish where the virus of cultural Marxism was fed to generations of students, church-goers and citizens for decades. It was almost inevitable that the revolution would start there. The ideological subversion of the United States is likewise well-advanced. We are now watching the new Jacobins tearing down statues of Columbus and trying to erase American history. Major corporations, celebrities and politicians all rush to swear fealty to BLM and Antifa, and donations pour in to support radical organizations. The Church stands silent. What can we do to get rid of this spiritual virus?

The solution is prayer. We must pray for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary over communism. Regardless of whether the Holy Father consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart correctly or not (no Pope ever consecrated Russia by name to the Immaculate Heart), the current situation is the manifestation of the prophecy of Fatima – that Russia would spread its errors across the world.

Pray the Rosary daily for the end of atheistic communism!

Georgia

A bunch of African-Americans (niggers) think the new Atlanta suburbs in Fulton and DeKalb counties are “too White” and have filed a frivolous lawsuit against the State of Georgia in federal court to revoke their city charters.

The African-American plaintiffs claim their “voting rights” are being violated, not because Bull Connor or the Klan is stopping them from voting, but solely because they are outnumbered by racially aware, White conservatives who understand the politically incorrect connections between “diversity,” crime, and fiscal irresponsibility in Fulton County.

“If we look at this realistically, there is some white flight going on. The creation of these Sandy Springs-type cities enables white voters to get away from black voters.”

Of course it does.

No one in their right fucking mind wants to live under the incompetence and corruption that comes with an African-American controlled city government. While niggers aren’t exactly zombies, they have overrun Atlanta in much the same way. They also have reinforcements coming from up North.

This is what Martin Luther King really meant when he talked about his dream: in Black Run America, White taxpayers exist to service blacks. To use a metaphor, you’re zombie food!

Harry Lyon #racist freethoughtblogs.com

Tim Lennox: “‘It would only take five or 10 getting killed and broadcast on CNN for it to send a clear message not to fool, or not to step foot rather, in Alabama.’ Is that an accurate quote?”

Harry Lyon: “That’s an accurate quote. You have have to get tough on things like this. We’re losing 35 to 50 soldiers a day in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s a tough proposal, but the legislature would have to approve it.”

Lyon: “If I were an illegal alien in Alabama and I read that in the newspaper, I wouldn’t wait around for laws to be passed, I would be going back to my homeland. They broke in here, they violated our laws. It’s no different than breaking into your house.” …

Lyon: “Now, I can assure you that proposal would fly right through the Alabama legislature if one of these illegal immigrants were to blow up the Galleria, OK?”

Lennox: “Well, but there’s no indication that any immigrants in Alabama, illegal or otherwise, have done anything along these lines—”

Lyon: “Well, there’s no indication about 9/11 until the buildings came down.”

Lennox: “I mean, are you suggesting that this is a real concern of yours?”

Lyon: “Absolutely. These people are not here legally, they are here illegally. What do they care about the laws of Alabama, or the United States? Slap in our face.”

Press and politicians are blind to the truth.

If you get your news from NBC, this is what you learned about yesterday’s Unite the Right rally: “Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally Violence Prompts State of Emergency.” That’s right: The problem was white nationalist violence. It was as if the demonstrators had behaved just like Black Lives Matter or masked antifa: looting, burning, stopping traffic, and roughing up bystanders. Of course, what caused the violence was hostile counter-demonstrators, many of them wearing helmets and carrying shields. If they had not been there, there would have been no violence, and the rally would have taken place as planned.

Of all people, it was Donald Trump who came the closest to getting it right, condemning “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” This, of course, earned him near-universal condemnation. As former Vice President Joe Biden explained, “There is only one side,” and the problem was Unite the Right. This prompted a storm of retweets and similar sentiments. Virginia’s attorney general Mark Herring tweeted that “violence, chaos, and apparent loss of life in Charlottesville is not the fault of ‘many sides.’ It is racists and white supremacists.” Actress Leslie Grossman probably expressed the only-one-side view best.

Here, one side is demonstrating peacefully, though provocatively; the other side—the good side—is committing violent aggression. (Swastikas were extremely rare in Charlottesville, but they make for better “anti-racist” graphics than Confederate flags.) So this is the moral calculus of Joe Biden, the Virginia attorney general, and the rest of the Left. It wouldn’t matter if every hand lifted by Unite the Right was in strict self-defense; the violence is their fault. Racially conscious whites deserve violence simply because of what they think.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe saw only one side, in a widely praised speech, telling Unite the Right, “You came here to hurt people, and you did hurt people.” Is Terry McAuliffe a mind-reader? Would they have hurt anything or anyone if counter-demonstrators had not showed up with shields and batons, screaming and throwing smoke bombs, determined to shut down the demonstration–and hurt “Nazis”?

One young white man did crash his car into demonstrators, killing one. We don’t yet know his motives, but even if he deliberately hurt people, there was just one of him, and everyone associated with Unite the Right has condemned him.

What about the police? They were clearly either incompetent or determined to shut down the rally before it began. The swarms of uniformed men on the scene did very little to separate demonstrators from counter-demonstrators. Television has broadcast one fistfight after another, with no police in sight. Besides the driver of car—who is charged with 2nd degree murder—those swarms of police made only three arrests. What were they doing?

The fighting, which started before the rally even had a chance to begin, was the excuse for police to declare it an “unlawful assembly” and call it off. Jason Kessler, who organized the rally, has rightly pointed out that this meant counter-demonstrators exercised the “heckler’s veto,” successfully silencing people with whom they disagreed. Instead of excerpts from pro-white speeches, the only thing media consumers therefore got was Confederate flags and brawling.

But Joe Biden tells us there is “only one side” to this story. Actually, there are three sides: Unite the Right, which gathered peacefully but defended itself; anti-racists who shut them down; and the police who let them do it.

There is a clear pattern to these events that not one mainstream outlet has noted. There is confrontation only when anti-whites harass and try to stop pro-white events. The reverse never happens. Lefties and non-whites can mount the most brazenly anti-white events, unmolested and with full media approval. It would be hard to imagine a clearer example of this contract—and of the entrenched bigotry we face—than yesterday’s events.

Jason Kessler is scheduled to make a statement to the press today at 2:00 p.m. He is smart man and a brave man. I’m sure we can trust him to make an excellent case for our side.

Update: Mr. Kessler set up microphones in front of the Charlottesville city hall to make his statement. Counter-demonstrators made such a racket that it was impossible for the press to hear what he was saying. Protesters edged closer and than attacked Mr. Kessler; police escorted him away for his own safety. Once again, a pro-white message has been stifled by anti-white thugs.

David Harsanyi #fundie thefederalist.com

This week, the Democratic Party was unable to pass a watered-down, platitudinous resolution condemning anti-Semitism, due to “fierce backlash” from presidential candidates, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), and the now-powerful progressive base. Rather than censuring Rep. Ilhan Omar, the intellectually frivolous, Hamas-supporting freshman representative from Minnesota, she was rewarded and inoculated from party criticism.
More consequently, the Democrats deemed Protocols of Zion-style attacks a legitimate form of debate. That’s because Omar, despite what you hear, has repeatedly attacked Jews, not only Israel supporters, and certainly not only specific Israeli policies.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who would finally bring an “All Lives Matter” resolution to the floor, told reporters she didn’t believe the congresswoman’s comments were “intentionally anti-Semitic.” No educated human believes Omar inadvertently accused “Benjamin”-grubbing Rootless Cosmopolitans of hypnotizing the world for their evil. These are long-standing, conspiratorial attacks on the Jewish people, used by anti-Semites on right and left, and popular throughout the Islamic world.
Even the Democratic Party activist groups that typically cover for the Israel-haters, like the Anti- Defamation League, have condemned Omar. Yet it was the lie that coursed through the Democratic Party’s defense of Omar.
Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren claimed that “branding criticism of Israel as automatically anti-Semitic has had a chilling effect on our public discourse and makes it harder to achieve a peaceful solution between Israelis and Palestinians.” Either Warren believes that accusing Jews and their supporters of dual loyalty and sedition is a legitimate criticism of Israel, or she is deliberately mischaracterizing Omar’s comments to gain favor with the growing faction of anti-Semites in her party.
“We must not,” the socialist Bernie Sanders argued, “equate anti-Semitism and legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel” because such a thing would be “stifling” debate. Does anyone believe that if left-of-center Kahol Lavan were running Israel, Omar would be less inclined to smear the bipartisan squishes at AIPAC?

Omar has mentioned Benjamin Netanyahu (who, incidentally, is in every way more of a genuine liberal than either Sanders or Omar) once in her Twitter feed, and then only to use this very talking point to defend her comments. As a political matter, no major party in Israel is going allow an independent Palestinian state run by theocrats and terrorists to exist, so Omar and her allies will never be appeased.
Of course, no one argues that Omar’s speech should be curtailed or stifled. The same can’t be said of her defenders, however, who not only falsely claim criticism of her tropes is “chilling speech,” but also decided to transform this 38-year-old firebrand into a helpless, childlike victim.
“We all have a responsibility to speak out against anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, racism, and all forms of hatred and bigotry, especially as we see a spike in hate crimes in America,” said Sen. Kamala Harris, who, like many Democrats, tried to dilute criticism of anti-Semitism in a torrent of phobias. “But like some of my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus, I am concerned that the spotlight being put on Congresswoman Omar may put her at risk.”
We shouldn’t exaggerate the prevalence of hate crimes in America, which is low, but it’s certainly worth pointing out that Jews are the target of 60 percent of those crimes—a far larger percentage than anyone else. In New York City, there have been at least 36 hate crimes against Jews so far this year so far. Shouldn’t Harris be more concerned about Omar’s rhetoric?

As Gad Saad noted yesterday, Omar’s brand of Israel criticism “is almost ALWAYS a cover of existential and definitional Jew-hatred.” This anti-Israel sentiment—opposition to the idea of a national Jewish state—is the most consequential form of anti-Semitism that exists in the world today. It has done more to undermine Jewish safety than all the dog whistles and white nationalist marches combined. Yet, many Democrats have now seemingly joined Corbynites and leftists around the world perpetuating this radicalism.
The normalization of Omarism is a long time coming. Omar’s defenders have been praising and participating in the Women’s March, led by Louis Farrakhan acolytes who believe Jewish people bear a special collective responsibility “as exploiters of black and brown people,” since Trump was elected. But it goes even further back.
When leaving the CBC meeting, “members formed a circle around Omar and Marcia Fudge literally stuck her arm out to prevent reporters from asking her questions. Then a few members hugged Omar, including Al Lawson.” It is unsurprising that Omar, who has great trouble answering simple questions, has the CBC running interference for her hatred. At least seven members of the CBC—a group seemingly immune from criticism—have coordinated and worked with Farrakhan, the anti-Semite preacher who believes “satanic” Jews are “termites” who “deserve to die.” Liberals keep telling me Farrakhan is just a conservative boogeyman, and yet his contingent is growing as Omar and allies like Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez join the ranks.
Democrats’ allies in media quickly came to Omar’s rescue, as well. The Washington Post ran three articles after Omar’s initial comments this week. All three defended her. “Want to combat hate? Stop the hazing of Ilhan Omar and start listening” wrote Wajahat Ali and Rabia Chaudry. Not only shouldn’t Jews censure Omar, the authors argued, they should shut up and listen to her wisdom. In the progressive worldview, Jews, who are successful and predominately white, should put up with a little bigotry for the common good.

As Rep James Clyburn (D-SC), who once also shared a stage with Farrakhan, noted, Omar should be given a free pass because she fled Somalia. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” he explained. It’s personal to hate Jews when you fled Somalia? The number of people defending Omar on the risible grounds that Muslims should be immune from criticism isn’t surprising when you realize that identity politics demands strict adherence to the hierarchy of victimhood.
When New York Times reporters Sheryl Gay Stolberg (whose article in the aftermath of Omar’s dual loyalty remarks asked if Jewish people had too much power in Washington) and Glenn Thrush (who may or may not be taking diction from the Democratic National Committee) authored a piece about the resolution fight, they spent a large chunk of their space letting everyone know that President Donald Trump—whose daughter converted to Judaism and who moved the American embassy to Jerusalem and who stopped coddling the world’s most dangerous anti-Jewish terror-state—had also used anti-Semitic tropes.
While it’s not worth again debunking the fact that Trump never said neo-Nazis were “very fine people” or pointing out that most of the Jews at the Republican Jewish Coalition laughed at his jokes, it is worth mentioning that Democrats have embraced the worst kind of “whataboutism.”
NBC’s News’ Chuck Todd, in his “I’m obsessed with” segment, offered a jaw-droppingly misleading lecture accusing both parties of having an anti-Semitism problem by comparing elected officials like Omar and Tlaib — who have been embraced by their party, take part in policy making, and now widely defended on the mainstream left — to a fringe Nazi murderer who shot up a Pittsburgh synagogue, whom not a single Republican supports and has nothing to do with the GOP. The very fact that Todd was forced to shoehorn these comparisons is revealing.
In truth, Pelosi’s first watered-down resolution would have passed with most Republicans voting for it, and a number of Democrats defecting. This would have been embarrassing. So she promised to dilute it, and even that wasn’t enough for Democrats. Now, leadership is poised to pass some pointless resolution condemning all hatred.
Omar, an intellectual lightweight, is certainly a problem for America. But the fact that Democrats apparently believe what she says is fine is an absolute disaster.

Top Ten Anti-Christian Acts of 2015

10) Obama makes a swipe at Christianity at National Prayer Breakfast In an effort to justify and minimize recent Islamic terrorism, President Obama tries to assert moral equivalency with Christianity by appealing to the Crusades.

9) Kelvin Cochran, the chief of Atlanta’s Fire Rescue Department, was sacked by Mayor Kasim Reed for giving Christian co-workers a religious book he wrote. Parts of the book contained passages condemning homosexuality. Cochran is suing the City of Atlanta for religious discrimination.

8) Christian Bakery Pays $135,000 for “Emotional Suffering” to Lesbian Couple Aaron and Melissa Klein, the Christian owners of a bakery in Oregon, “Sweet Cakes by Melissa,” was ordered to pay $135,000 in state-ordered damages for refusing to bake a wedding cake. The state swooped in and seized their accounts.

7) Christian Institutions Sued for not Hiring Homosexuals A Roman Catholic school in Massachusetts has been ordered by a Superior Court judge to hire homosexuals for non-teaching positions. Matthew Barrett was hired as the food service director at Fontbonne Academy which is sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston. While filling out employment forms, Barrett listed a “husband” as his emergency contact. Because Barrett’s living in an open homosexual relationship violated the values held by the school, he was told he could not work there. Barrett sued the school, and Superior Court Justice Douglas Wilkins agreed he had been illegally discriminated against. Wilkins’ ruling stated that since Barrett’s job was a “non-teaching” position, the school’s religious values did not matter.

6) Christian Military Chaplains Bullied A military chaplain recruiter, Douglas Lee of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, recently told The Washington Times that growing hostility within the military to religious freedoms has made it harder to find chaplains willing to serve our brave servicemen, leaving them without the necessary and important spiritual guidance they need and deserve.

5) NYC Pastors threatened with $250K fine for “misgendering” transsexuals One of the fallouts of the whole abominable Bruce Jenner becomes “Caitlyn” gender bender sideshow is a draconian new law in NYC. If you call a transsexual person “he” or “she” when they preferred to be called “zhe” you could be fined $250,000 according to a newly updated anti-discrimination law in New York City. Pastors are not exempted, so they must either must shut up about biblical, hetero-normal sexual ethics or pay up.

4) Charleston and Oregon Mass Murders of Christians On June 17th in Charleston, SC a dissolute racist went into an historic Emmanuel AME Church and shot nine black Christians dead, including the pastor, Clementa C. Pinckney, in hopes of escalating a race war. On October 1st, another crazed gunman killed nine people and wounded up to nine others at quiet, Umpqua Community College in rural Oregon. The depraved shooter entered the classroom, murdered the teacher then asked the class about their religion. If they said they were Christians they were shot in the head.

3) Lawsuits against Pro-lifers for exposing Planned Parenthood The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a powerful series of videos from an undercover investigation that proved Planned Parenthood was illegally profiteering from the sale of baby body parts and cadavers. The videos shook the nation and have precipitated numerous Federal and state investigations. Renewed calls to defund Planned Parenthood are shaping the Presidential primary debates. Now David Daleiden of CMP and Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, who served on the CMP Board, are being sued under racketeering statutes and could face huge civil judgments and possible criminal prosecutions. Imagine if they had exposed illegal activity of a Christian organization, do you think any judge would require this go to trial?

2) Islamic Terrorists attack Christmas Party in California On December 2nd two Jihadi terrorists, a man who worked for the city and his wife, conducted a terrorist attack at his department Christmas Party. Fourteen people were killed, and twenty were seriously injured before the terrorists were killed by police. This came on the heels of a terrorist attack in Paris. This a sober reminder that, according to the FBI, there are Jihadist sleeper cells all over the US planning their attacks.

1) Homosexual Marriage vs. Religious Liberty & Kim Davis On June 26th, in a raw act of judicial tyranny, the US Supreme Court rendered an unconstitutional opinion that some believe makes homosexual marriage legal in all 50 states. The erroneous Obergefell decision led a Federal judge to make national news by throwing Kim Davis, a Kentucky County Clerk, in jail because she refused to issue same sex marriage licenses. DefendChristians.Org rallied with Governor Huckabee in support of Kim Davis and helped to secure her release. We are part of a movement to undo the unconstitutional Obergefell opinion. Some state legislatures are ready to begin nullification of the rogue opinion in early 2016.

Deadly Immunity

In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Ga. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public announcement of the session -- only private invitations to 52 attendees. There were high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva, and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was strictly "embargoed." There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers with them when they left.

The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of a host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency's massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines -- thimerosal -- appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children. "I was actually stunned by what I saw," Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism. Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants -- in one case, within hours of birth -- the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children.

Even for scientists and doctors accustomed to confronting issues of life and death, the findings were frightening. "You can play with this all you want," Dr. Bill Weil, a consultant for the American Academy of Pediatrics, told the group. The results "are statistically significant." Dr. Richard Johnston, an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado whose grandson had been born early on the morning of the meeting's first day, was even more alarmed. "My gut feeling?" he said. "Forgive this personal comment -- I do not want my grandson to get a thimerosal-containing vaccine until we know better what is going on."

But instead of taking immediate steps to alert the public and rid the vaccine supply of thimerosal, the officials and executives at Simpsonwood spent most of the next two days discussing how to cover up the damaging data. According to transcripts obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, many at the meeting were concerned about how the damaging revelations about thimerosal would affect the vaccine industry's bottom line.

"We are in a bad position from the standpoint of defending any lawsuits," said Dr. Robert Brent, a pediatrician at the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware. "This will be a resource to our very busy plaintiff attorneys in this country." Dr. Bob Chen, head of vaccine safety for the CDC, expressed relief that "given the sensitivity of the information, we have been able to keep it out of the hands of, let's say, less responsible hands." Dr. John Clements, vaccines advisor at the World Health Organization, declared that "perhaps this study should not have been done at all." He added that "the research results have to be handled," warning that the study "will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond the control of this group."

In fact, the government has proved to be far more adept at handling the damage than at protecting children's health. The CDC paid the Institute of Medicine to conduct a new study to whitewash the risks of thimerosal, ordering researchers to "rule out" the chemical's link to autism. It withheld Verstraeten's findings, even though they had been slated for immediate publication, and told other scientists that his original data had been "lost" and could not be replicated. And to thwart the Freedom of Information Act, it handed its giant database of vaccine records over to a private company, declaring it off-limits to researchers. By the time Verstraeten finally published his study in 2003, he had gone to work for GlaxoSmithKline and reworked his data to bury the link between thimerosal and autism.

Vaccine manufacturers had already begun to phase thimerosal out of injections given to American infants -- but they continued to sell off their mercury-based supplies of vaccines until last year. The CDC and FDA gave them a hand, buying up the tainted vaccines for export to developing countries and allowing drug companies to continue using the preservative in some American vaccines -- including several pediatric flu shots as well as tetanus boosters routinely given to 11-year-olds.

The drug companies are also getting help from powerful lawmakers in Washington. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, who has received $873,000 in contributions from the pharmaceutical industry, has been working to immunize vaccine makers from liability in 4,200 lawsuits that have been filed by the parents of injured children. On five separate occasions, Frist has tried to seal all of the government's vaccine-related documents -- including the Simpsonwood transcripts -- and shield Eli Lilly, the developer of thimerosal, from subpoenas. In 2002, the day after Frist quietly slipped a rider known as the "Eli Lilly Protection Act" into a homeland security bill, the company contributed $10,000 to his campaign and bought 5,000 copies of his book on bioterrorism. Congress repealed the measure in 2003 -- but earlier this year, Frist slipped another provision into an anti-terrorism bill that would deny compensation to children suffering from vaccine-related brain disorders. "The lawsuits are of such magnitude that they could put vaccine producers out of business and limit our capacity to deal with a biological attack by terrorists," says Andy Olsen, a legislative assistant to Frist.

Even many conservatives are shocked by the government's effort to cover up the dangers of thimerosal. Rep. Dan Burton, a Republican from Indiana, oversaw a three-year investigation of thimerosal after his grandson was diagnosed with autism. "Thimerosal used as a preservative in vaccines is directly related to the autism epidemic," his House Government Reform Committee concluded in its final report. "This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding a lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal, a known neurotoxin." The FDA and other public-health agencies failed to act, the committee added, out of "institutional malfeasance for self protection" and "misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry."

The story of how government health agencies colluded with Big Pharma to hide the risks of thimerosal from the public is a chilling case study of institutional arrogance, power and greed. I was drawn into the controversy only reluctantly. As an attorney and environmentalist who has spent years working on issues of mercury toxicity, I frequently met mothers of autistic children who were absolutely convinced that their kids had been injured by vaccines. Privately, I was skeptical. I doubted that autism could be blamed on a single source, and I certainly understood the government's need to reassure parents that vaccinations are safe; the eradication of deadly childhood diseases depends on it. I tended to agree with skeptics like Rep. Henry Waxman, a Democrat from California, who criticized his colleagues on the House Government Reform Committee for leaping to conclusions about autism and vaccinations. "Why should we scare people about immunization," Waxman pointed out at one hearing, "until we know the facts?"

It was only after reading the Simpsonwood transcripts, studying the leading scientific research and talking with many of the nation's preeminent authorities on mercury that I became convinced that the link between thimerosal and the epidemic of childhood neurological disorders is real. Five of my own children are members of the Thimerosal Generation -- those born between 1989 and 2003 -- who received heavy doses of mercury from vaccines. "The elementary grades are overwhelmed with children who have symptoms of neurological or immune-system damage," Patti White, a school nurse, told the House Government Reform Committee in 1999. "Vaccines are supposed to be making us healthier; however, in 25 years of nursing I have never seen so many damaged, sick kids. Something very, very wrong is happening to our children." More than 500,000 kids currently suffer from autism, and pediatricians diagnose more than 40,000 new cases every year. The disease was unknown until 1943, when it was identified and diagnosed among 11 children born in the months after thimerosal was first added to baby vaccines in 1931.

Some skeptics dispute that the rise in autism is caused by thimerosal-tainted vaccinations. They argue that the increase is a result of better diagnosis -- a theory that seems questionable at best, given that most of the new cases of autism are clustered within a single generation of children. "If the epidemic is truly an artifact of poor diagnosis," scoffs Dr. Boyd Haley, one of the world's authorities on mercury toxicity, "then where are all the 20-year-old autistics?" Other researchers point out that Americans are exposed to a greater cumulative "load" of mercury than ever before, from contaminated fish to dental fillings, and suggest that thimerosal in vaccines may be only part of a much larger problem. It's a concern that certainly deserves far more attention than it has received -- but it overlooks the fact that the mercury concentrations in vaccines dwarf other sources of exposure to our children.

What is most striking is the lengths to which many of the leading detectives have gone to ignore -- and cover up -- the evidence against thimerosal. From the very beginning, the scientific case against the mercury additive has been overwhelming. The preservative, which is used to stem fungi and bacterial growth in vaccines, contains ethylmercury, a potent neurotoxin. Truckloads of studies have shown that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines -- and that the developing brains of infants are particularly susceptible. In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to much lower concentrations of ethylmercury than those given to American children still suffered brain damage years later. Russia banned thimerosal from children's vaccines 20 years ago, and Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have since followed suit.

"You couldn't even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe," says Haley, who heads the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. "It's just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage."

Internal documents reveal that Eli Lilly, which first developed thimerosal, knew from the start that its product could cause damage -- and even death -- in both animals and humans. In 1930, the company tested thimerosal by administering it to 22 patients with terminal meningitis, all of whom died within weeks of being injected -- a fact Lilly didn't bother to report in its study declaring thimerosal safe. In 1935, researchers at another vaccine manufacturer, Pittman-Moore, warned Lilly that its claims about thimerosal's safety "did not check with ours." Half the dogs Pittman injected with thimerosal-based vaccines became sick, leading researchers there to declare the preservative "unsatisfactory as a serum intended for use on dogs."

In the decades that followed, the evidence against thimerosal continued to mount. During the Second World War, when the Department of Defense used the preservative in vaccines on soldiers, it required Lilly to label it "poison." In 1967, a study in Applied Microbiology found that thimerosal killed mice when added to injected vaccines. Four years later, Lilly's own studies discerned that thimerosal was "toxic to tissue cells" in concentrations as low as one part per million -- 100 times weaker than the concentration in a typical vaccine. Even so, the company continued to promote thimerosal as "nontoxic" and also incorporated it into topical disinfectants. In 1977, 10 babies at a Toronto hospital died when an antiseptic preserved with thimerosal was dabbed onto their umbilical cords.

In 1982, the FDA proposed a ban on over-the-counter products that contained thimerosal, and in 1991 the agency considered banning it from animal vaccines. But tragically, that same year, the CDC recommended that infants be injected with a series of mercury-laced vaccines. Newborns would be vaccinated for hepatitis B within 24 hours of birth, and 2-month-old infants would be immunized for haemophilus influenzae B and diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis.

The drug industry knew the additional vaccines posed a danger. The same year that the CDC approved the new vaccines, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, one of the fathers of Merck's vaccine programs, warned the company that 6-month-olds who were administered the shots would suffer dangerous exposure to mercury. He recommended that thimerosal be discontinued, "especially when used on infants and children," noting that the industry knew of nontoxic alternatives. "The best way to go," he added, "is to switch to dispensing the actual vaccines without adding preservatives."

For Merck and other drug companies, however, the obstacle was money. Thimerosal enables the pharmaceutical industry to package vaccines in vials that contain multiple doses, which require additional protection because they are more easily contaminated by multiple needle entries. The larger vials cost half as much to produce as smaller, single-dose vials, making it cheaper for international agencies to distribute them to impoverished regions at risk of epidemics. Faced with this "cost consideration," Merck ignored Hilleman's warnings, and government officials continued to push more and more thimerosal-based vaccines for children. Before 1989, American preschoolers received 11 vaccinations -- for polio, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis and measles-mumps-rubella. A decade later, thanks to federal recommendations, children were receiving a total of 22 immunizations by the time they reached first grade.

As the number of vaccines increased, the rate of autism among children exploded. During the 1990s, 40 million children were injected with thimerosal-based vaccines, receiving unprecedented levels of mercury during a period critical for brain development. Despite the well-documented dangers of thimerosal, it appears that no one bothered to add up the cumulative dose of mercury that children would receive from the mandated vaccines. "What took the FDA so long to do the calculations?" Peter Patriarca, director of viral products for the agency, asked in an e-mail to the CDC in 1999. "Why didn't CDC and the advisory bodies do these calculations when they rapidly expanded the childhood immunization schedule?"

But by that time, the damage was done. Infants who received all their vaccines, plus boosters, by the age of six months were being injected with a total of 187 micrograms of ethylmercury -- a level 40 percent greater than the EPA's limit for daily exposure to methylmercury, a related neurotoxin. Although the vaccine industry insists that ethylmercury poses little danger because it breaks down rapidly and is removed by the body, several studies -- including one published in April by the National Institutes of Health -- suggest that ethylmercury is actually more toxic to developing brains and stays in the brain longer than methylmercury. Under the expanded schedule of vaccinations, multiple shots were often administered on a single day: At two months, when the infant brain is still at a critical stage of development, children routinely received three innoculations that delivered 99 times the approved limit of mercury.

Officials responsible for childhood immunizations insist that the additional vaccines were necessary to protect infants from disease and that thimerosal is still essential in developing nations, which, they often claim, cannot afford the single-dose vials that don't require a preservative. Dr. Paul Offit, one of CDC's top vaccine advisors, told me, "I think if we really have an influenza pandemic -- and certainly we will in the next 20 years, because we always do -- there's no way on God's earth that we immunize 280 million people with single-dose vials. There has to be multidose vials."

But while public-health officials may have been well-intentioned, many of those on the CDC advisory committee who backed the additional vaccines had close ties to the industry. Dr. Sam Katz, the committee's chair, was a paid consultant for most of the major vaccine makers and was part of a team that developed the measles vaccine and brought it to licensure in 1963. Dr. Neal Halsey, another committee member, worked as a researcher for the vaccine companies and received honoraria from Abbott Labs for his research on the hepatitis B vaccine.

Indeed, in the tight circle of scientists who work on vaccines, such conflicts of interest are common. Rep. Burton says that the CDC "routinely allows scientists with blatant conflicts of interest to serve on intellectual advisory committees that make recommendations on new vaccines," even though they have "interests in the products and companies for which they are supposed to be providing unbiased oversight." The House Government Reform Committee discovered that four of the eight CDC advisors who approved guidelines for a rotavirus vaccine "had financial ties to the pharmaceutical companies that were developing different versions of the vaccine."

Offit, who shares a patent on one of the vaccines, acknowledged to me that he "would make money" if his vote eventually leads to a marketable product. But he dismissed my suggestion that a scientist's direct financial stake in CDC approval might bias his judgment. "It provides no conflict for me," he insists. "I have simply been informed by the process, not corrupted by it. When I sat around that table, my sole intent was trying to make recommendations that best benefited the children in this country. It's offensive to say that physicians and public-health people are in the pocket of industry and thus are making decisions that they know are unsafe for children. It's just not the way it works."

Other vaccine scientists and regulators gave me similar assurances. Like Offit, they view themselves as enlightened guardians of children's health, proud of their "partnerships" with pharmaceutical companies, immune to the seductions of personal profit, besieged by irrational activists whose anti-vaccine campaigns are endangering children's health. They are often resentful of questioning. "Science," says Offit, "is best left to scientists."

Still, some government officials were alarmed by the apparent conflicts of interest. In his e-mail to CDC administrators in 1999, Paul Patriarca of the FDA blasted federal regulators for failing to adequately scrutinize the danger posed by the added baby vaccines. "I'm not sure there will be an easy way out of the potential perception that the FDA, CDC and immunization-policy bodies may have been asleep at the switch re: thimerosal until now," Patriarca wrote. The close ties between regulatory officials and the pharmaceutical industry, he added, "will also raise questions about various advisory bodies regarding aggressive recommendations for use" of thimerosal in child vaccines.

If federal regulators and government scientists failed to grasp the potential risks of thimerosal over the years, no one could claim ignorance after the secret meeting at Simpsonwood. But rather than conduct more studies to test the link to autism and other forms of brain damage, the CDC placed politics over science. The agency turned its database on childhood vaccines -- which had been developed largely at taxpayer expense -- over to a private agency, America's Health Insurance Plans, ensuring that it could not be used for additional research. It also instructed the Institute of Medicine, an advisory organization that is part of the National Academy of Sciences, to produce a study debunking the link between thimerosal and brain disorders. The CDC "wants us to declare, well, that these things are pretty safe," Dr. Marie McCormick, who chaired the IOM's Immunization Safety Review Committee, told her fellow researchers when they first met in January 2001. "We are not ever going to come down that [autism] is a true side effect" of thimerosal exposure. According to transcripts of the meeting, the committee's chief staffer, Kathleen Stratton, predicted that the IOM would conclude that the evidence was "inadequate to accept or reject a causal relation" between thimerosal and autism. That, she added, was the result "Walt wants" -- a reference to Dr. Walter Orenstein, director of the National Immunization Program for the CDC.

For those who had devoted their lives to promoting vaccination, the revelations about thimerosal threatened to undermine everything they had worked for. "We've got a dragon by the tail here," said Dr. Michael Kaback, another committee member. "The more negative that [our] presentation is, the less likely people are to use vaccination, immunization -- and we know what the results of that will be. We are kind of caught in a trap. How we work our way out of the trap, I think is the charge."

Even in public, federal officials made it clear that their primary goal in studying thimerosal was to dispel doubts about vaccines. "Four current studies are taking place to rule out the proposed link between autism and thimerosal," Dr. Gordon Douglas, then-director of strategic planning for vaccine research at the National Institutes of Health, assured a Princeton University gathering in May 2001. "In order to undo the harmful effects of research claiming to link the [measles] vaccine to an elevated risk of autism, we need to conduct and publicize additional studies to assure parents of safety." Douglas formerly served as president of vaccinations for Merck, where he ignored warnings about thimerosal's risks.

In May of last year, the Institute of Medicine issued its final report. Its conclusion: There is no proven link between autism and thimerosal in vaccines. Rather than reviewing the large body of literature describing the toxicity of thimerosal, the report relied on four disastrously flawed epidemiological studies examining European countries, where children received much smaller doses of thimerosal than American kids. It also cited a new version of the Verstraeten study, published in the journal Pediatrics, that had been reworked to reduce the link between thimerosal and autism. The new study included children too young to have been diagnosed with autism and overlooked others who showed signs of the disease. The IOM declared the case closed and -- in a startling position for a scientific body -- recommended that no further research be conducted.

The report may have satisfied the CDC, but it convinced no one. Rep. David Weldon, a Republican physician from Florida who serves on the House Government Reform Committee, attacked the Institute of Medicine, saying it relied on a handful of studies that were "fatally flawed" by "poor design" and failed to represent "all the available scientific and medical research." CDC officials are not interested in an honest search for the truth, Weldon told me, because "an association between vaccines and autism would force them to admit that their policies irreparably damaged thousands of children. Who would want to make that conclusion about themselves?"

Under pressure from Congress and parents, the Institute of Medicine convened another panel to address continuing concerns about the Vaccine Safety Datalink data-sharing program. In February, the new panel, composed of different scientists, criticized the way the VSD had been used to study vaccine safety, and urged the CDC to make its vaccine database available to the public.

So far, though, only two scientists have managed to gain access. Dr. Mark Geier, president of the Genetics Center of America, and his son, David, spent a year battling to obtain the medical records from the CDC. Since August 2002, when members of Congress pressured the agency to turn over the data, the Geiers have completed six studies that demonstrate a powerful correlation between thimerosal and neurological damage in children. One study, which compares the cumulative dose of mercury received by children born between 1981 and 1985 with those born between 1990 and 1996, found a "very significant relationship" between autism and vaccines. Another study of educational performance found that kids who received higher doses of thimerosal in vaccines were nearly three times as likely to be diagnosed with autism and more than three times as likely to suffer from speech disorders and mental retardation. Another soon-to-be-published study shows that autism rates are in decline following the recent elimination of thimerosal from most vaccines.

As the federal government worked to prevent scientists from studying vaccines, others have stepped in to study the link to autism. In April, reporter Dan Olmsted of UPI undertook one of the more interesting studies himself. Searching for children who had not been exposed to mercury in vaccines -- the kind of population that scientists typically use as a "control" in experiments -- Olmsted scoured the Amish of Lancaster County, Penn., who refuse to immunize their infants. Given the national rate of autism, Olmsted calculated that there should be 130 autistics among the Amish. He found only four. One had been exposed to high levels of mercury from a power plant. The other three -- including one child adopted from outside the Amish community -- had received their vaccines.

At the state level, many officials have also conducted in-depth reviews of thimerosal. While the Institute of Medicine was busy whitewashing the risks, the Iowa Legislature was carefully combing through all of the available scientific and biological data. "After three years of review, I became convinced there was sufficient credible research to show a link between mercury and the increased incidences in autism," state Sen. Ken Veenstra, a Republican who oversaw the investigation, told the magazine Byronchild earlier this year. "The fact that Iowa's 700 percent increase in autism began in the 1990s, right after more and more vaccines were added to the children's vaccine schedules, is solid evidence alone." Last year, Iowa became the first state to ban mercury in vaccines, followed by California. Similar bans are now under consideration in 32 other states.

But instead of following suit, the FDA continues to allow manufacturers to include thimerosal in scores of over-the-counter medications as well as steroids and injected collagen. Even more alarming, the government continues to ship vaccines preserved with thimerosal to developing countries -- some of which are now experiencing a sudden explosion in autism rates. In China, where the disease was virtually unknown prior to the introduction of thimerosal by U.S. drug manufacturers in 1999, news reports indicate that there are now more than 1.8 million autistics. Although reliable numbers are hard to come by, autistic disorders also appear to be soaring in India, Argentina, Nicaragua and other developing countries that are now using thimerosal-laced vaccines. The World Health Organization continues to insist thimerosal is safe, but it promises to keep the possibility that it is linked to neurological disorders "under review."

I devoted time to study this issue because I believe that this is a moral crisis that must be addressed. If, as the evidence suggests, our public-health authorities knowingly allowed the pharmaceutical industry to poison an entire generation of American children, their actions arguably constitute one of the biggest scandals in the annals of American medicine. "The CDC is guilty of incompetence and gross negligence," says Mark Blaxill, vice president of Safe Minds, a nonprofit organization concerned about the role of mercury in medicines. "The damage caused by vaccine exposure is massive. It's bigger than asbestos, bigger than tobacco, bigger than anything you've ever seen." It's hard to calculate the damage to our country -- and to the international efforts to eradicate epidemic diseases -- if Third World nations come to believe that America's most heralded foreign-aid initiative is poisoning their children. It's not difficult to predict how this scenario will be interpreted by America's enemies abroad. The scientists and researchers -- many of them sincere, even idealistic -- who are participating in efforts to hide the science on thimerosal claim that they are trying to advance the lofty goal of protecting children in developing nations from disease pandemics. They are badly misguided. Their failure to come clean on thimerosal will come back horribly to haunt our country and the world's poorest populations.

Brainerd school board chairwoman questions teaching of evolution
Chairwoman asks why it's still taught if Christians don't agree with it. ’

The chairwoman of Brainerd’s school board this week questioned the teaching of evolution and suggested that it’s incompatible with Christian beliefs.

“I did have a question about evolution,” Sue Kern said at a Monday board meeting after a presentation about the planned biology curriculum at Brainerd High School.

“You know, Darwin’s theory was done in the mid-1800s and it’s never been proven,” Kern said. “So I’m wondering why we’re still teaching it.”

District staff and faculty members who gave the presentation responded by explaining that the theory of evolution has gotten stronger with scientific discovery — for example, the study of DNA.

Kern then wondered about those whose religious beliefs don’t include evolution.

“And then with regard to your Christian students, then — how do you do that? How do you tell them?” she said. “Because they are taught not to agree with that, so …”

Craig Rezac, a Brainerd science teacher who led the presentation to the school board, answered that teaching evolution is not in conflict with Christian beliefs.

“This is science, and science doesn’t deal with a belief system,” he said. “We deal with facts.

“It doesn’t have to be a dilemma or a concern with someone to choose between evolution or Christianity,” he said. “You can actually embrace both.”

Tim Murtha, the district’s director of teaching and learning, pointed out that teaching evolution is explicitly identified in state educational standards.

Kern didn’t respond to requests for comment.

In a statement, Brainerd Public Schools Superintendent Laine Larson said Kern’s comments “reflect her personal views and do not reflect the views of the Board of Education as a whole or the Brainerd Public School District.”

“The District’s approved science curriculum aligns with the MN State Standards,” Larson’s statement said, adding that “the Board of Education unanimously approved the Science and Biology curriculum at Monday’s meeting.”

Kern was first elected to the school board in 2012. In a candidate questionnaire in 2016, as she ran for a second term, she promised “to maintain family conservative values and culture.” According to her LinkedIn profile, Kern is a registered nurse and works as a realty assistant.

Minnesota courts have upheld the teaching of evolution. In 2001, the state Court of Appeals upheld the removal of a Faribault biology teacher, Rod LeVake, who argued that teaching evolution violated his Christian beliefs. He was reassigned to teach science in a lower grade, where evolution wasn’t part of the curriculum.

Randy Moore, a biology professor at the University of Minnesota, called evolution disputes “a common theme in virtually every school district. It’s been controversial throughout the country, and not just in the South, for 100 years,” he said.

Moore has done regular surveys of Minnesota teachers and consistently found that at least a third of them either downplay evolution or don’t teach it at all, despite state requirements.

“They are afraid of it — either the topic or the consequences,” Moore said. “Either for religious or local political reasons, it’s just not worth it.”

Disputes over evolution teaching are less frequent than they were 20 to 30 years ago, said Ann Reid, executive director of the National Center for Science Education.

“The court rulings have been so clear,” she said. In many cases, she added, evolution becomes an issue “because someone has run for the school board, or gotten involved because they want to keep evolution out of the schools.”

“They really see it as a battle for their kids’ souls,” Reid said.

Rabbi Levin: Hurricane: Global Warming or G-d’s Warning?

Tens of billions in losses, 50 dead, scientists say that Sandy is the worst N.Y. hurricane in 800 years! Some insurance policies still call this kind of occurance an ACT OF G-D. But where are our religio-conservative leaders to interpret what’s happening?

Remember when Dr. Falwell and Dr. Pat Robertson attributed 9/11 to the homosexual agenda and abortion? Guess our leaders have a huge problem doing that now.

After all, the dirty secret they don’t tell us is that Romney supports homosexual adoption and Boy Scout leaders, homosexualization of the military, “domestic partnerships”/civil unions, homosexual K-12 mandated school curricula, homosexual youth day proclaimations, $50 taxpayer funded abortion in Massachussetts, and the list goes on.

[...]

Here’s a traditional Jewish/Torah approach to the hurricane and the election:
1-G-d multitasks. There are probably various reasons for the hurricane. Each person should repent for his/her personal shortcomings.
2-Days after same gender marriage began in New York, we were hit by Hurricane Irene. Days before the national election, (no significant repentance in NY or anywhere in the US,) Hurricane Sandy hits, further damaging our fragile economy. In 2 days: An earthquake in California, an “almost” tsunami in Alaska, Hawaii and Hurricane Sandy in the East. Sleep on…
3-Daily, millions of Jews recite Psalms 147 & 148: (147)”He who dispatches His utterance earthward; how swiftly His Commandment runs! He who gives snow…scatters frost…hurls His ice…before His cold, who can stand?...He blows His wind…the water flows…”

[...]

What should G-d fearing people do?

A. Repent personal and communal transgressions.
B. Defeat pro-homosexual union legislation and referenda especially in the states of Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington.
C. Do not vote for any candidate who supports an anti-G-d or anti-family agenda or legislation.

If Obama wins and the Senate is Republican, they can act as a strong loyal opposition, hindering much of the Obama agenda. However, if Romney (a wolf in sheep’s clothing) wins, even a Republican Congress will not significantly oppose Romney’s anti-family efforts. The results would be morally and spiritually catastrophic. It could be the end of the religio-conservative movement!

D. Urge your conservative and religious leaders to speak out and lead!

Forward this statement to your e-mail lists and urge them to do the same. We must defend His values.

[In response to a judge calling DOMA unconstitutional under the 5th amendment]
The Supreme Law of the Land is the Constitution which supports the Laws of Nature.

Nothing as unnatural as homosexual sodomy acts-—can be redefined as a “Right” and “good”.

Reason and Logic has to be used in Just Law and homosexuality not only ejects Reason and Logic and biology—and redefines words to make them meaningless—it is the promotion of EVIL as GOOD. Sodomy is always a Vice and can not be promoted by Laws which by very definition in the Constitution, have to be JUST LAW.

Of course, these Marxist judges don’t believe in the Supreme Law of the Land and its Standard-—which is based on GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS-—not Satanic Rights from Barney Frank.

These “judges” should be impeached because they do not uphold their oath of office.

Since my leaving the Resistance Manifesto I have noticed a pattern of dominance of Satanic/Atheist influence that continually trolls the site, challenging any and all Christian opinions that are seen as a threat to the Satanist agenda.

My own experience started giving me hints to the horrendous activity that is going on behind the scenes of what should be considered a "Christian" haven of refuge of ideas to share in the resistance of the Satanic agenda of the New World Order, but instead, has become a haven for every foul creature, and a refuge for every vile Satanist that trolls the web looking for any opposition to their agenda; then flooding it with re-enforcements of a "wolf pack" mentality, to drive off and stave, any threat to their plans. Complaints of this activity have gone unanswered, and for the most part, ignored. It is as if Mark Dice has welcomed such opposition to his "supposed resistance". So the question of the day is; Why would a supposed Christian man, with a supposed Christian web site and forum completely ignore the complaints of the Satanic violation of it's genuine Christian members? Why does he continually ignore such complaints, then only answer them when he is put on display and called out publicly about such incompetence?

AUSTRALIA’S GAY MARRIAGE VOTE MAY LEAD TO SPECTACULAR FAILURE FOR THE LEFT

Australia is currently voting in a postal survey on whether to legalise gay marriage. A clear majority of Australians support gay marriage but I predict that the “No” side will win the vote. When this occurs, the radical left will have no one to blame but themselves. There is a strong feeling of a Trump or Brexit type upset in the air, but the main reason that the “No” campaign will win is because the “Yes” side’s campaign has alienated the sensible center.

Australia is one of the few countries in the world that has compulsory voting in elections but this postal survey is not compulsory and I would be surprised if turnout is much over 50%. Opinion polls over recent years have consistently shown that around two thirds of Australians support gay marriage, but the expected low turnout makes the result of the postal survey hard to predict. Just as the “silent” Trump voters skewed the exit polls in the 2016 US Presidential election, there is probably also around 5% of Australians who are telling pollsters that they support gay marriage but who will in fact vote no.

The “Yes” and “No” campaigns

The “Yes” campaign is led by around half of the ruling centre-right Liberal/National government, including Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, plus the opposition centre-left Labor Party and the far-left Greens Party. Almost all prominent Australians are supporting the “Yes” campaign.

The “No” campaign is led by religious organisations and a few conservative politicians. The fact that most Australian Muslims will undoubtedly vote no is an ironic turn for the leftists who have campaigned so hard to allow them into the country. The overwhelming support for the “Yes” side amongst prominent Australians from politics to media to entertainment to sport is reminiscent of opposition to Trump in the US and to Brexit in the UK.

The “Yes” side is not really making much of an argument, they just keep saying “love is love”. Presumably they do not think that incest, paedophilia or polygamy are ok because “love is love”, but they haven’t elaborated.

The “No” side is not making much of an argument about gay marriage either. Instead, it is arguing that gay marriage is another step towards political correctness and denial of free speech and religious freedom. Australia’s former conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott is urging a “no” vote to “stop political correctness in its tracks”.

The left’s counterproductive tactics

The left is making two key strategic errors in its campaign. Firstly, it is arguing that there should not be a public debate or public vote on this issue. Secondly, it is bullying, persecuting and harassing anyone brave enough to declare that they will vote “no”.

The left has long argued against a public vote on same sex marriage saying that it will hurt gay people’s mental health and that straight people should not have the right to decide if gay people have “human rights”. The left does not appear to understand that people don’t like being told what they are and are not allowed to discuss, debate, say or think.

Some of the more radical leftist individuals and groups have also harassed, bullied and persecuted people who oppose gay marriage. On September 22, a “Yes” campaigner head butted Tony Abbott. A former champion boxer, Abbott assured the media he was “entirely unscathed” but said that he worries about “the brave new world of same-sex marriage if this is how some of the people who are most enthusiastically supporting it are behaving”.

In Canberra, an 18-year-old woman named Madeline was fired from her job at a children’s party business for advocating a “no” vote on her private Facebook wall. Capital Kids Parties owner Madlin Sims said she fired Madeline because “advertising your desire to vote no for SSM [same-sex marriage] is, in my eyes, hate speech”.

In Brisbane, the National Union of Students organised a rally outside a church to harass the attendees at a “vote no” meeting. The rally turned violent and one woman was arrested.

When “no” campaigners hired Skywriting Australia to write “vote no” in the sky above Sydney the business was abused on social media and the business owner received a torrent of harassing text messages including the following:

…you really are a shit human. You’re definitely the biggest piece of shit in Australia today. Probably tomorrow too. Hope you’re proud of yourself. Don’t be surprised by the hate coming for you. Titt for tatt, it’s only fair, right? You stupid, ignorant, remorseless, pathetic, old, LOSER.

The organisers of the skywriting later reported that GoFundMe “has decided to freeze our funds, until we give our names and locations. This is on the back of a massive amount of hateful messages we have received by people who want to silence our message and personally attack us.”

Of course, there are people on the “No” side who have behaved inappropriately too. The difference is that within the “Yes” camp the arguments that there should be no debate, or that those who oppose gay marriage should not be allowed to state their views, is mainstream.

Unlike the United States, Australia does not have constitutionally protected free speech. The Australian Parliament has passed laws imposing fines of up to $12,600 for anyone “vilifying” or “intimidating” another person during the gay marriage debate. I expect these laws will be enforced selectively against “no” campaigners for “homophobic” comments.

Lessons for the right

We shouldn’t underestimate the radical left, but we shouldn’t overestimate them either. Let them be themselves and they will alienate ten people for every one they convert. We on the right must not get down into the gutter to fight with these radical leftists or we will come out at least as dirty as they are. Let’s maintain the moral high ground and promote civilised debate, free speech, and non-violence.

Mark Downey #racist rawstory.com

A white supremacist church leader is feeling emboldened by Donald Trump’s election win — but not bold enough to tell reporters where his group worships.

Pastor Mark Downey, who operates the white supremacist Kinsman Redeemer Ministries, has written an extremely lengthy open letter to Donald Trump that’s circulating on Christian Identity church websites, reported WCPO-TV.

Christian Identity adherents believe, contrary to biblical scripture, that “Germanic, Celtic, Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon” people are God’s “Chosen People,” and the small but influential religious sect informs nearly all white supremacist and extreme anti-government groups.

Downey, however, sees Trump’s election as an opportunity to enter the political mainstream.

“I am an outsider, about as non-partisan as a liaison with Providence and a potential President could be,” Downey wrote. “Nevertheless, I wouldn’t be wasting my time if there was the possibility that you could be the called out one to lead us out of the terrible mess we’re in.”

The letter, which was written Oct. 9, suggests that “divine destiny” will lead Trump to victory, and he called on the Republican to disavow mainstream evangelical Christianity and endorse Christian Identity’s extremist ideology.

“The wolves in evangelical clothing will not tell you the following things to do, because for the most part, they are shabbez goi, which means they are the lackies for their Jewish masters,” wrote Downey, who essentially encourages Trump to recast himself as a religious leader.

“If you want to make America great again, it is imperative that we isolate ourselves from a world gone crazy,” Downey wrote. “It is madness to impose other morals and values upon this once great Christian nation. Think of it: a White Christian America as envisioned by our founding fathers or a third world melting pot that has no identity, no heritage and thus no future of greatness. No other religion will make America great again. Have you ever heard ‘No King but Jesus’?”

Downey cited anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that influenced Adolf Hitler, whom he’s praised, to beg Trump to crack down on the media.

“You’ve been a media player for years (and) the media is run by the Jews. It goes all the way back to the Rothschilds,” Downey wrote. “It’s a fact, that six Jewish companies control 96% of the world’s media. And boy, do they have an antichrist agenda.”

Although most Americans are unaware of Christian Identity teachings, the sect’s beliefs influence Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups — who have outspokenly endorsed Trump — as well as anti-government militias and the “sovereign citizen” movement.

“Only one race answers to the Holy Bible scenario of Israel in the latter days, and that is the White Race,” Downey wrote.

Downey told a reporter that his congregation met in Florence, Kentucky, although its mailing address is in nearby Alexandria, but he stopped returning calls when the journalist identified his profession.

Another northern Kentucky church, Fellowship of God’s Covenant People in Union, lists Downey as its pastor.

The last time Downey, who claims he ran for state legislature in 1994, got anywhere near mainstream politics was in 2014, when he urged his congregants to cast write-in ballots for a neo-Nazi candidate for the U.S. Senate who also lived in Florence.

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing to be the voice of diversity in the gaming media, and media at large. For years I have received reports of corruption in the courts. There is plenty of documented corruption in Memphis, TN so it did not surprise me. Just recently I was blessed enough to experience the corruption in the courts personally. I warn you that this historical accounting may make your blood boil. This relaying of facts might make you lose all faith in the judicial system in the United States of America. It might affirm your beliefs on how messed up Memphis, TN actually is. I write nothing out of malice, anger, or revenge. I waited over a week to write about this topic.

Back in February of 2020 I received a summons to the court because a law firm in Collierville, TN was suing me for Baptist Women’s Health. How could this be? I am a man. I have never been to Baptist Women’s Health. I called the law firm and was told they had a signed contract with my signature on it. They claimed I owed their client $1800.00 after they had manufactured money with late fees. They sent me the official records which was Hodgepodge forms put together in a highly suspect fashion. I also noticed immediately that I did not sign that form. Supposedly Yolanda did, however that signature looked faked to me. There were billing errors on the form. The wrong insurance company was listed and they billed it as out of state instead of in state which costs less. I pointed out all these errors and the law office told me it was my responsibility to make the Baptist Women’s Health Billing Office file correctly with the insurance company. How can it be my responsibility to fix their incompetence? Why am I supposed to do their jobs for them?

Went to court and was treated like I was guilty and had to prove my innocence which was a Constitutional violation. Showed up every single time I was told to and the judge and lawyers did not show up. I was told if I did not show up they would rule against me. Yet I showed up and they did not and nothing was ruled in my favor. Finally got the court case and the lawyer viciously attacking me and trying to cancel me was given special privileges. My status as a disable war veteran who gave them all freedom was spit on. I pointed out the facts and the judge did not care. He kept interrupting me because he did not want to have to work more than one hour in the morning session. I pointed out my First Amendment Rights were violated, my Sixth Amendment Rights were violated. I pointed out the giant gaping holes in their case. I pointed out they had no chain of custody on their documentation and anything could have changed in it. I pointed out the death threats and attacks from the evil cancel culture people. None of the facts mattered. The judge rules in favor of his friend the lawyer. The only logical thing I can see is corruption in the courts.

While I was waiting for my case to be tried I had to sit through all these other cases flying by. The judge was short with real people and pleasant to the lawyers. In fact special favors and privileges were referenced as lawyers and judge were obvious way too familiar with one another. The judge talked down to every real person who was there being attacked by mega large corporations. The standards were obviously different for real people and lawyers. We are obviously seen as a lower class by these arrogant clowns. We will never have anything to do with Baptist Women’s Health ever again. We are encouraging everyone we know to avoid that place. I would also recommend avoiding Memphis, and courts as much as possible.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

God bless,

California! Go to the Damn Beach!

I sure wish Californians would go back to being the badass Californians I remember from back in January. I mean, why are surfers who aren’t afraid to swim with great white sharks afraid of that snake’eyed pantywaist Newsom, or some bully donut eater who’s probably had the Vrill proboscis treatment?

That reminds me…yesterday there was a video that went viral on the internet of a male nursing home attendant beating up an old man. The Q people went after this guy and within hours the Detroit police had him under arrest. Which is really good, but you gotta wonder what kind of a person would do that??? And film himself like he’s proud of it or something and then put it up on the internet? Well if you ask me that question I’d say NO kinda person would do that. But a proboscused bug-brain sure would. They love being bullies, and they love showing off how they can get away with being bullies.

And I think that’s all that’s happening in California where the bullies are getting away with beating up the Californians, who now the rest of the country is making fun of because they won’t just get up and go to the d*mn beach.

I myself have had the corona so now I’ve got the antigen in my blood, which I could donate to someone else who needed it. And that’s the thing about this dumb quarantine policy. Wouldn’t it be better to just let the corona spread around naturally so more and more people can get it and become immune? And become plasma donors to the dwindling numbers of infected people? Like with the chickenpox? I think instead of those ridiculous facemasks we should have little pins that say “I’ve got the antigen and I’m a donor!”

It’s time to move on from this foolish facemask thing.

[...]

Now I don’t claim to know the motive behind this wicked demand, but can’t you just feel the divisiveness in making people keep themselves six feet away from each other, just so they don’t pass cooties back and forth? It’s the very definition of evil! And it stuns me that people are willing to do this! Would God have you separated from your brothers and sisters like this? NO!!!!!!!!

Friends, please stop agreeing to that.

Please stop listening to a person who has absolutely ZERO interest in your well-being. She is only trying to continue manipulating people into unintentionally committing a sin, and that’s exactly what it is. I’m sorry, but it’s a sin to our humanity when you agree to that crap.

So stop.

Go to the beach and hug the snot out of every person you see. Maybe even kiss ‘em. That’s what God would have you do.

THE TOP 40
REASONS TO DOUBT THE OFFICIAL STORY OF SEPTEMBER 11th, 2001

… An outline in simple talking points …

We are continuing to compile the best documentation links for every single point on this page, and intend to post the updated version as soon as possible, and create teaching tools and more from the info. This is a significant and time-consuming process–if you have useful links, please send them to janice[at]911truth[dot]org. Thanks for your help!
If you use the search function with title key words, you will discover that 911Truth.org is home to articles backing virtually every point made below. Much of the basic research is available at the Complete 9/11 Timeline (hosted by cooperativeresearch.org), the 9/11 Reading Room (911readingroom.org), and the NY Attorney General Spitzer petition and complaint (Justicefor911.org). For physical evidence discussion, see Point 7.

THE DAY ITSELF – EVIDENCE OF COMPLICITY

1) AWOL Chain of Command
a. It is well documented that the officials topping the chain of command for response to a domestic attack – George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Myers, Montague Winfield, Ralph Eberhart – all found reason to do something else during the actual attacks, other than assuming their duties as decision-makers.
b. Who was actually in charge? Dick Cheney, Richard Clarke, Norman Mineta and the 9/11 Commission directly conflict in their accounts of top-level response to the unfolding events, such that several (or all) of them must be lying.

2) Air Defense Failures
a. The US air defense system failed to follow standard procedures for responding to diverted passenger flights.
b. Timelines: The various responsible agencies – NORAD, FAA, Pentagon, USAF, as well as the 9/11 Commission – gave radically different explanations for the failure (in some cases upheld for years), such that several officials must have lied; but none were held accountable.
c. Was there an air defense standdown?

3) Pentagon Strike
How was it possible the Pentagon was hit 1 hour and 20 minutes after the attacks began? Why was there no response from Andrews Air Force Base, just 10 miles away and home to Air National Guard units charged with defending the skies above the nation”s capital? How did Hani Hanjour, a man who failed as a Cessna pilot on his first flight in a Boeing, execute a difficult aerobatic maneuver to strike the Pentagon? Why did the attack strike the just-renovated side, which was largely empty and opposite from the high command?

4) Wargames
a. US military and other authorities planned or actually rehearsed defensive response to all elements of the 9/11 scenario during the year prior to the attack – including multiple hijackings, suicide crashbombings, and a strike on the Pentagon.
b. The multiple military wargames planned long in advance and held on the morning of September 11th included scenarios of a domestic air crisis, a plane crashing into a government building, and a large-scale emergency in New York. If this was only an incredible series of coincidences, why did the official investigations avoid the issue? There is evidence that the wargames created confusion as to whether the unfolding events were “real world or exercise.” Did wargames serve as the cover for air defense sabotage, and/or the execution of an “inside job”?

5) Flight 93
Did the Shanksville crash occur at 10:06 (according to a seismic report) or 10:03 (according to the 9/11 Commission)? Does the Commission wish to hide what happened in the last three minutes of the flight, and if so, why? Was Flight 93 shot down, as indicated by the scattering of debris over a trail of several miles?

THE DAY – POSSIBLE SMOKING GUNS

6) Did cell phones work at 30,000 feet in 2001? How many hijackings were attempted? How many flights were diverted?

7) Demolition Hypothesis
What caused the collapse of a third skyscraper, WTC 7, which was not hit by a plane? Were the Twin Towers and WTC 7 brought down by explosives? (See “The Case for Demolitions,” the websites wtc7.net and 911research.wtc7.net, and the influential article by physicist Steven Jones. See also items no. 16 and 24, below.)

FOREKNOWLEDGE & THE ALLEGED HIJACKERS

8) What did officials know? How did they know it?
a. Multiple allied foreign agencies informed the US government of a coming attack in detail, including the manner and likely targets of the attack, the name of the operation (the “Big Wedding”), and the names of certain men later identified as being among the perpetrators.
b. Various individuals came into possession of specific advance knowledge, and some of them tried to warn the US prior to September 11th.
c. Certain prominent persons received warnings not to fly on the week or on the day of September 11th.

9) Able Danger, Plus – Surveillance of Alleged Hijackers
a. The men identified as the 9/11 ringleaders were under surveillance for years beforehand, on the suspicion they were terrorists, by a variety of US and allied authorities – including the CIA, the US military”s “Able Danger” program, the German authorities, Israeli intelligence and others.
b.Two of the alleged ringleaders who were known to be under surveillance by the CIA also lived with an FBI asset in San Diego, but this is supposed to be yet another coincidence.

10) Obstruction of FBI Investigations prior to 9/11
A group of FBI officials in New York systematically suppressed field investigations of potential terrorists that might have uncovered the alleged hijackers – as the Moussaoui case once again showed. The stories of Sibel Edmonds, Robert Wright, Coleen Rowley and Harry Samit, the “Phoenix Memo,” David Schippers, the 199i orders restricting investigations, the Bush administration”s order to back off the Bin Ladin family, the reaction to the “Bojinka” plot, and John O”Neil do not, when considered in sum, indicate mere incompetence, but high-level corruption and protection of criminal networks, including the network of the alleged 9/11 conspirators. (Nearly all of these examples were omitted from or relegated to fleeting footnotes in /11 Commission Report.)

11) Insider Trading
a. Unknown speculators allegedly used foreknowledge of the Sept. 11th events to profiteer on many markets internationally – including but not limited to “put options” placed to short-sell the two airlines, WTC tenants, and WTC re-insurance companies in Chicago and London. See Billions in Pre-911 Insider Trading Profits Leaves a Hot Trail and Criminal Insider Trading leads directly to CIA.
b. Initial reports on these trades, such as Profiting from Disaster and Suspicious Trading, were suppressed and forgotten, and only years later did the 9/11 Commission and SEC provide a partial, but untenable explanation for only a small number of transactions (covering only the airline put options through the Chicago Board of Exchange).
c. In addition, suspicious monetary transactions worth hundreds of millions were conducted through offices at the Twin Towers during the actual attacks. The German firm, Convar, recovered financial data from hard drives recovered from Ground Zero although the Commission published this FBI briefing on trading in which agents expressed a lack of knowledge and doubt about the data recovery long after the data was transmitted to the FBI. Here is an update on Oh the places you go (when you follow the money).
d. See this interview with Bill Bergman who worked at the Chicago Federal Reserve for over 13 years as an economist and financial markets policy analyst. He was fired when he raised concerns about unusual currency transactions pre- 9-11.

12) Who were the perpetrators?
a. Much of the evidence establishing who did the crime is dubious and miraculous: bags full of incriminating material that happened to miss the flight or were left in a van; the “magic passport” of an alleged hijacker, found at Ground Zero; documents found at motels where the alleged perpetrators had stayed days and weeks before 9/11.
b. The identities of the alleged hijackers remain unresolved, there are contradictions in official accounts of their actions and travels, and there is evidence several of them had “doubles,” all of which is omitted from official investigations.
c. What happened to initial claims by the government that 50 people involved in the attacks had been identified, including the 19 alleged hijackers, with 10 still at large (suggesting that 20 had been apprehended)? http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/sns-worldtrade-50suspects,0,1825231.story
d. How did they enter the US? Where did they get their VISAS?

THE 9/11 COVER-UP, 2001-2006

13) Who Is Osama Bin Ladin?
a. Who judges which of the many conflicting and dubious statements and videos attributed to Osama Bin Ladin are genuine, and which are fake? The most important Osama Bin Ladin video (Nov. 2001), in which he supposedly confesses to masterminding 9/11, appears to be a fake. In any event, the State Department”s translation of it is fraudulent.
b. Did Osama Bin Ladin visit Dubai and meet a CIA agent in July 2001 (Le Figaro)? Was he receiving dialysis in a Pakistani military hospital on the night of September 10, 2001 (CBS)?
c. Whether by Bush or Clinton: Why is Osama always allowed to escape?
d. The terror network associated with Osama, known as the “base” (al-Qaeda), originated in the CIA-sponsored 1980s anti-Soviet jihad in Afghanistan. When did this network stop serving as an asset to covert operations by US intelligence and allied agencies? What were its operatives doing in Kosovo, Bosnia and Chechnya in the years prior to 9/11?

14) All the Signs of a Systematic 9/11 Cover-up
a. 911Truth.Org broke the story that Airplane black boxes were found at Ground Zero, according to two first responders and an unnamed NTSB official, but they were “disappeared” and their existence is denied in /11 Commission Report.
b. US officials consistently suppressed and destroyed evidence (like the tapes recorded by air traffic controllers who handled the New York flights). NEADS recordings damaged during transcription.
c. Whistleblowers (like Sibel Edmonds and Anthony Shaffer) were intimidated, gagged and sanctioned, sending a clear signal to others who might be thinking about speaking out.
d. Officials who “failed” (like Myers and Eberhard, as well as Frasca, Maltbie and Bowman of the FBI) were given promotions.

15) Poisoning New York
The White House deliberately pressured the EPA into giving false public assurances that the toxic air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe. This knowingly contributed to an as-yet unknown number of health cases and fatalities, and demonstrates that the administration does consider the lives of American citizens to be expendable on behalf of certain interests.

16) Disposing of the Crime Scene
The rapid and illegal scrapping of the WTC ruins at Ground Zero disposed of almost all of the structural steel indispensable to any investigation of the collapse mechanics. (See also item no. 23, below.)

17) Anthrax
Mailings of weapons-grade anthrax – which caused a practical suspension of the 9/11 investigations – were traced back to US military stock. Soon after the attacks began in October 2001, the FBI approved the destruction of the original samples of the Ames strain, disposing of perhaps the most important evidence in identifying the source of the pathogens used in the mailings. Were the anthrax attacks timed to coincide with the Afghanistan invasion? Why were the letters sent only to media figures and to the leaders of the opposition in the Senate (who had just raised objections to the USA PATRIOT Act)? Calls were issued to investigate the investigators.

18) The Stonewall
a. Colin Powell promised a “white paper” from the State Department to establish the authorship of the attacks by al-Qaeda. This was never forthcoming, and was instead replaced by a paper from Tony Blair, which presented only circumstantial evidence, with very few points actually relating to September 11th.
b. Bush and Cheney pressured the (freshly-anthraxed) leadership of the Congressional opposition into delaying the 9/11 investigation for months. The administration fought against the creation of an independent investigation for more than a year.
c. The White House thereupon attempted to appoint Henry Kissinger as the chief investigator, and acted to underfund and obstruct the 9/11 Commission.

19) A Record of Official Lies
a. “No one could have imagined planes into buildings” – a transparent falsehood upheld repeatedly by Rice, Rumsfeld and Bush.
b. “Iraq was connected to 9/11? – The most “outrageous conspiracy theory” of all, with the most disastrous impact.
c. CIA misleads FBI about hijackers in US.

20) Pakistani Connection – Congressional Connection
a. The Pakistani intelligence agency ISI, creator of the Taliban and close ally to both the CIA and “al-Qaeda,” allegedly wired $100,000 to Mohamed Atta just prior to September 11th, reportedly through the ISI asset Omar Saeed Sheikh (later arrested for the killing of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was investigating ISI connections to “al-Qaeda.”)
b. This was ignored by the congressional 9/11 investigation, although the senator and congressman who ran the probe (Bob Graham and Porter Goss) were meeting with the ISI chief, Mahmud Ahmed, on Capitol Hill on the morning of September 11th.
c. About 25 percent of the report of the Congressional Joint Inquiry was redacted, including long passages regarding how the attack (or the network allegedly behind it) was financed. Graham later said foreign allies were involved in financing the alleged terror network, but that this would only come out in 30 years.

21) 9/11 Commission:
a. The September 11th families who fought for and gained an independent investigation (the 9/11 Commission) posed 400-plus questions, which the 9/11 Commission adopted as its roadmap. The vast majority of these questions were completely ignored in the Commission hearings and the final report.
b. The membership and staff of the 9/11 Commission displayed awesome conflicts of interest. The families called for the resignation of Executive Director Philip Zelikow, a Bush administration member and close associate of “star witness” Condoleezza Rice, and were snubbed. Commission member Max Cleland resigned, condemning the entire exercise as a “scam” and “whitewash.”
c./11 Commission Report is notable mainly for its contradictions, obvious omissions, distortions and outright falsehoods – ignoring anything incompatible with the official story, banishing the issues to footnotes, and even dismissing the still-unresolved question of who financed 9/11 as being “of little practical significance.”

22) Crown Witnesses Held at Undisclosed Locations
The alleged masterminds of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohamed (KSM) and Ramzi Binalshibh, are reported to have been captured in 2002 and 2003, although one Pakistani newspaper said KSM was killed in an attempted capture. They have been held at undisclosed locations and their supposed testimonies, as provided in transcript form by the government, form much of the basis for /11 Commission Report (although the Commission”s request to see them in person was denied). After holding them for years, why doesn”t the government produce these men and put them to trial?

23) Spitzer Redux
a. Eliot Spitzer, attorney general of New York State, snubbed pleas by New York citizens to open 9/11 as a criminal case (Justicefor911.org).
b. Spitzer also refused to allow his employee, former 9/11 Commission staff member Dietrich Snell, to testify to the Congress about his (Snell”s) role in keeping “Able Danger” entirely out of /11 Commission Report.

24) NIST Omissions
After the destruction of the WTC structural steel, the official Twin Towers collapse investigation was left with almost no forensic evidence, and thus could only provide dubious computer models of ultimately unprovable hypotheses. It failed to even test for the possibility of explosives. (Why not clear this up?)

25) Radio Silence
The 9/11 Commission and NIST both allowed the continuing cover-up of how Motorola’s faulty radios, purchased by the Giuliani administration, caused firefighter deaths at the WTC – once again showing the expendability, even of the first responders.

26) The Legal Catch-22
a. Hush Money – Accepting victims” compensation barred September 11th families from pursuing discovery through litigation.
b. Judge Hellerstein – Those who refused compensation to pursue litigation and discovery had their cases consolidated under the same judge (and as a rule dismissed).

27) Saudi Connections
a. The 9/11 investigations made light of the “Bin Ladin Airlift” during the no-fly period, and ignored the long-standing Bush family business ties to the Bin Ladin family fortune. (A company in which both families held interests, the Carlyle Group, was holding its annual meeting on September 11th, with George Bush Sr., James Baker, and two brothers of Osama Bin Ladin in attendance.)
b. The issue of Ptech.

28) Media Blackout of Prominent Doubters
The official story has been questioned and many of the above points were raised by members of the US Congress, retired high-ranking officers of the US military, the three leading third-party candidates for President in the 2004 election, a member of the 9/11 Commission who resigned in protest, a former high-ranking adviser to the George W. Bush administration, former ministers to the German, British and Canadian governments, the commander-in-chief of the Russian air force, 100 luminaries who signed the “9/11 Truth Statement,” and the presidents of Iran and Venezuela. Not all of these people agree fully with each other, but all would normally be considered newsworthy. Why has the corporate-owned US mass media remained silent about these statements, granting due coverage only to the comments of actor Charlie Sheen?

GEOPOLITICS, TIMING AND POSSIBLE MOTIVES

29) “The Great Game”
The Afghanistan invasion was ready for Bush”s go-ahead on September 9, 2001, with US and UK force deployments to the region already in place or underway. This followed the failure earlier that year of backdoor diplomacy with the Taliban (including payments of $125 million in US government aid to Afghanistan), in an attempt to secure a unity government for that country as a prerequisite to a Central Asian pipeline deal.

30) The Need for a “New Pearl Harbor”
Principals in US foreign policy under the current Bush administration (including Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle and others) have been instrumental in developing long-running plans for worldwide military hegemony, including an invasion of the Middle East, dating back to the Ford, Reagan and Bush Sr. administrations. They reiterated these plans in the late 1990s as members of the “Project for a New American Century,” and stated a clear intent to invade Iraq for the purpose of “regime change.” After 9/11, they lost no time in their attempt to tie Iraq to the attacks.

31) Perpetual “War on Terror”
9/11 is supposed to provide carte-blanche for an open-ended, global and perpetual “War on Terror,” against any enemy, foreign or domestic, that the executive branch chooses to designate, and regardless of whether evidence exists to actually connect these enemies to 9/11.

32) Attacking the Constitution
a. The USA PATRIOT Act was written before 9/11, Homeland Security and the “Shadow Government” were developed long before 9/11, and plans for rounding up dissidents as a means for suppressing civil disturbance have been in the works for decades.
b. 9/11 was used as the pretext to create a new, extra-constitutional executive authority to declare anyone an “enemy combatant” (including American citizens), to detain persons indefinitely without habeas corpus, and to “render” such persons to secret prisons where torture is practiced.

33) Legal Trillions
9/11 triggers a predictable shift of public spending to war, and boosts public and private spending in the “new” New Economy of “Homeland Security,” biometrics, universal surveillance, prisons, civil defense, secured enclaves, security,
etc.

34) Plundered Trillions?
On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced a “war on waste” after an internal audit found that the Pentagon was “missing” 2.3 trillion dollars in unaccounted assets. On September 11th, this was as good as forgotten.

35) Did 9/11 prevent a stock market crash?
Did anyone benefit from the destruction of the Securities and Exchange Commission offices at WTC 7, and the resultant crippling of hundreds of fraud investigations?

36) Resource Wars
a. What was discussed in the Energy Task Force meetings under Dick Cheney in 2001? Why is the documentation of these meetings still being suppressed?
b. Is Peak Oil a motive for 9/11 as inside job?

37) The “Little Game”
Why was the WTC privatized just before its destruction?

HISTORY

38) “Al-CIA-da?”
The longstanding relationship between US intelligence networks and radical Islamists, including the network surrounding Osama Bin Ladin. (See also point 13d.)

39) Historical Precedents for “Synthetic Terror”
a. In the past many states, including the US government, have sponsored attacks on their own people, fabricated the “cause for war,” created (and armed) their own enemies of convenience, and sacrificed their own citizens for “reasons of state.”
b.Was 9/11 an update of the Pentagon-approved “Project Northwoods” plan for conducting self-inflicted, false-flag terror attacks in the United States, and blaming them on a foreign enemy?

40) Secret Government
a. The record of criminality and sponsorship of coups around the world by the covert networks based within the US intelligence complex.
b. Specifically also: The evidence of crime by Bush administration principals and their associates, from October Surprise to Iran-Contra and the S&L plunder to PNAC, Enron/Halliburton and beyond.

One of the things that really drives me crazy is that the left believes that we came to a cultural consensus on their ideas at some point between the civil war and the civil rights movement. I'm not here to try and say that there wasn't some sort of cultural consensus made on race at that time, but rather that it's not what they say it is. When white people agreed to make racism taboo, they didn't mean what anti-whites mean when they say "racism" today. No sensible white person would agree to be what counts as anti-racist today.

When the case was being made for anti-racism on a social and cultural level, nobody was talking about "abolishing whiteness" or becoming minorities in our own countries. Nobody was talking about making room for Islam in our culture or rewriting our history. Nobody was talking about shattering our sense of identity or demonizing us constantly in our own culture. Nobody was talking about censorship or denying science. What white people agreed to was basic shit like not standing on a street corner shouting racial slurs at black people.

When white Americans came to a cultural consensus not to be racist, they came to a cultural consensus against what are mostly cartoonish behaviors. Nobody defends being an evil cop who arrests someone just for being black. Nobody defends refusing to tip a waiter just for being non-white. Nobody defends committing any number of acts of vandalism with swastikas and shit that always find their way onto /r/hatecrimehoaxes. White people agreed to act civilized towards nonwhites and pretty much all of us have kept that agreement, including the alt right. The alt right is many things but we are not uncivil, regardless of anyone's race.

What I want to stress is that the alt right didn't just show up one day and decide to start pissing people off by violating what are essentially non-governmental treaties between different peoples. We are not the ones who decided to change the rules without telling anybody. Anti-whites did that by aggressively redefining the terms by which we structure social conventions, and they did this without asking us if we'd be okay with it. All that we did was notice what was going on and that our society is being subverted, and now we want to talk about it.

It's okay to be what in 2018 is called "racist." It doesn't make you hateful, it doesn't make you a bigot, and it doesn't make you a barbarian. It doesn't make you un-American and it's not at odds with anything in our culture. What is considered "racist" in the current year is just ordinary white people doing ordinary white people things, and it is okay to be white. I think that all of us have a psychological worm where we hear the term "racist" that used to be reserved for absurd and cartoonish behaviors and there's a natural urge to avoid being called that. However, definitions of words change over time and it no longer makes you a bad person. It just makes you a white person.

Idaho Governor Signs Restrictions on Affirmative Action, Trans Athletes

BOISE, Idaho (CN) – Idaho Governor Brad Little has approved a trio of bills that target affirmative action and transgender rights in the Gem State.

The first of the bills signed by the Republican governor is a statewide rollback of affirmative action protections. The new law bans state-run agencies, state contractors and public schools from using affirmative action in the employment process.

Supporters of the bill say it will help to ensure fairness and equality, while opponents have suggested that it could result in discriminatory practices toward minorities or other marginalized groups in the state.

The bill saw revisions prior to landing on the governor’s desk. After its initial passage in the Idaho House of Representatives, the Idaho Senate made changes to ensure that the bill would not result in any funding cuts from the federal government. Those against the bill, however, say the amendments essentially canceled out a provision barring discrimination on the basis of several factors including age, race or gender.

Little also approved two bill targeting transgender Idahoans.

Under a new birth certificate law, transgender individuals will no longer be able to change their listed sex on their official birth certificates and the certificate can only be amended within the first year of its filing. After that, a birth certificate can only be changed for reasons of “fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact.”

Little’s approval of the bill comes almost exactly two years after U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy W. Dale ruled a similar Idaho rule was unconstitutional. Dale said in March 2018 that a law banning transgender people from making birth certificate changes was in direct violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution and ordered the ban to be scrapped. Dale also warned the state against future restrictions that would run into the same legal problem.

Legal experts say that the newly approved bill will likely be challenged. An analysis of the bill conducted by the Idaho Attorney General’s office determined the bill could ultimately be deemed unconstitutional.

Backers of the bill, however, saw they are aware of the possible road ahead for the birth certificate bill.

“I think we all understand what the costs and what the risks are in making the decision to go forward,” Republican Senator Jim Rice told The Associated Press.

The second transgender-related bill Little signed bars transgender women and girls from participating in women’s sports at public schools, colleges and universities. Supporters of the bill argue the new restrictions will help to ensure fairness in sports because transgender female athletes could have unfair advantages.

Republican Idaho Representative Barbara Ehardt has said that the bill is about ensuring fair opportunities.

“As we look at the culture we’re in right now, to have opportunities taken away from girls and women by boys and men, it’s not right, it’s absolutely not right,” Ehardt said according to Boise news station KBOI.

Opponents say the bill discriminates against transgender girls and women who want to participate in sports, that it will require transgender females to undergo invasive or humiliating tests to prove their gender, and that such restrictions could turn prospective athletes away from sports altogether.

The Human Rights Campaign, one of the largest LGBTQ civil rights organization in the county, said that the bill marks Idaho as the first state in 2020 to target transgender people in such a direct way.

“We are living in an unprecedented global health crisis, with confirmed cases of Covid-19 increasing on a daily basis in Idaho, across the United States and around the world, but Governor Brad Little and the Idaho Legislature have decided to prioritize the demonization of transgender people,” the group’s president Alphonso David said in a statement.

“This is unacceptable, and a gross misuse of taxpayer funds and trust. Idaho is leading the way in anti-transgender discrimination, and at a time when life is hard enough for everyone, Idaho’s elected leaders will be remembered for working to make their transgender residents’ lives even harder,” he added. “Shame on Governor Little and the legislators who championed these heinous pieces of legislation.”

National Organization for Marriage #fundie nomblog.com

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Moving forward with a sweeping agenda they call "Beyond Marriage Equality" backers of redefining marriage have introduced new legislation, HR 3185, that would create special rights for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people and empower them to pursue legal action whenever they perceive an individual or businesses has "discriminated" based on "sexual orientation or gender identity."

Sponsored by the grossly-misnamed Human Rights Campaign special interest group, HR 3185 is breathtaking in its scope. It would allow gay and lesbian activists to persecute Americans in virtually every area of society — in employment, public accommodations, housing, credit, and a dozen other areas of civil life. Wherever federal law prohibits racial discrimination, it would also prohibit "discrimination" based on "sexual orientation and gender identity."

The legislation puts in the crosshairs anyone who believes God created people male and female. It would declare that a traditional view of human sexuality is hateful and bigoted and treat Christians, Jews and other people of faith just as the law treats racists. HR 3185 specifically denies someone who has been targeted the ability to rely on the provisions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as a defense against the complaint of discrimination.
Defend Those of Faith Today!

Americans across the land are witnessing the persecution of wedding professionals who are being forced by homosexual activists to participate in same-sex ceremonies even though doing so violates their deeply held religious beliefs concerning marriage. Bakers, photographers, florists, inn keepers and others have been persecuted, sued and fined simply because they do not wish to personally participate in a gay 'wedding.' HR 3185 will extend this persecution far beyond the wedding industry and will impact Americans in virtually every area of life.

Under HR 3185, all that a gay, lesbian or transgendered person needs to do is allege that an individual or business has somehow discriminated based on sexual orientation or gender identity and the full force of the federal government can be brought down on the person accused.

Just imagine how this proposed law would be used. Virtually any time a LGBT person feels they have been discriminated against they would be able to pursue a special legal claim using the force of the federal government as a powerful stick to punish people.

What lies "beyond marriage equality" is persecution. And that's what HR 3185 should be called — The Persecution of Americans Act.

Please act today to help us defeat HR 3185. Click here to send a message to your federal representatives asking them to vote against this dangerous proposal that will result in rampant persecution of Americans in virtually every area of civil life.

It is imperative that members of Congress hear immediately that the American people will not tolerate the creation of powerful special rights for one segment of society, and allow them to use the power of the federal government to persecute anyone who disagrees with them.
Please act today to stop HR 3185

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

PS — Please help us defeat HR 3185 by making a much-needed financial contribution. The backers of this outrageous legislation expect that NOM will not have the resources to mount an effective fight. Please prove them wrong with your gift of $5, $10, $25, $50 or $100 or more. Thank you.

Bill Armistead and Rep. Will Ainsworth #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Armistead: "So, how is it that God’s truth can be turned on its head as the debate now rages in Alabama regarding the meaning of marriage? The answer is that we, as a society, have become our own god. We have made God in our image. But, God will not be mocked. The State of Alabama and the United States of America will reap God’s wrath if we embrace and condone things that are abhorrent to God, such as redefining marriage as anything other than a union between one man and one woman."

Ainsworth: "If the choice is between being on the wrong side of a distorted, immoral, liberal perception of history, or violating God's laws, teachings, and biblical admonitions, I will happily disappoint the liberals every time," Ainsworth said. "During the campaign, my signs carried the slogan 'Fight Obama,' and, make no mistake, the gay rights agenda is the bedrock of Obama's agenda. I will use the upcoming session to look for every legislative remedy and tool that can be used to protect our traditional, conservative Alabama values, and I will continue the fight even after others have surrendered."

[Title : UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU GAY]

I've said this before but it's more true than ever. A satanic cult (Illuminism) is undermining our family identity to render us isolated, childless, sex-obsessed, dysfunctional, and docile.

I am referring to the Masonic Rothschild-Rockefeller cult-cartel that runs Europe and America and is behind Communism and Feminism. Destroying marriage and family was a plank in their Communist Manifesto (1848) and now is part of their satanic NWO.

We don't recognize that society is becoming gay because we think of homosexuality in terms of same-sex attraction. If we redefine it as "inability to bond with a member of the opposite sex for purposes of procreation," the gay trend is clear.

The American marriage rate has dropped almost 50% since 1970. Thirty seven percent of American children do not live with both biological parents, the highest percentage among Western nations, compared to 9% in 1965.

Almost 40% of children were born out of wedlock in 2005 compared to 8% in 1965.

Only one-in-four households consist of married couples with children, compared to two-in-four in 1960.

"The United States has the weakest families in the Western world because we have the highest divorce rate and the highest rate of solo parenting," says Rutgers Sociology Professor David Popenoe.

A defining characteristic of homosexuality is sexual promiscuity. Since media induced "sexual liberation," society has become obsessed with sex and all human relations have been degraded. (See my "Is this Gay Behavior Sick?" and "Playboy and the (Homo) Sexual Revolution."

Now the educational system is actually promoting sex to children. In Winnipeg where I live, a father complained this week that a public health teacher told his 12-year-old daughter's class to have sex at age 13. They were taught about flavored condoms and shown graphic pictures that appalled the children.

This action exposes the public school system for what it has become: an instrument of mass corruption, indoctrination and child abuse. With 13-year-olds told to have sex, is it any wonder they are inviting adult predators to their homes? (See "NBC Dateline: To Catch a Predator") How long will it be before pedophilia is legalized?

A strong marriage is the foundation of a family. Girls today will reach marital age feeling jaded and abused, and possibly already will have a child. Compare this to just 50-years-ago when sex was consecrated for marriage and family.

Schools are actually teaching children to adopt the gay lifestyle and experiment with gay sex. Courts are upholding the
right of schools to debauch children over their parents' objections.

whalenapp's dad #fundie reddit.com

[To give some context my father in-law is a true piece of shit. He cheated on his first wife and his second wife, multiple times. Never paid child support. His first set of kids from his first marriage (of which my wife is the oldest) hates him.

But he loves Jesus, also thats how the email was sent. No paragraphs, no formatting, and lots of bad grammar.]

Nicole, There are a lot of things that you should know about what is going on. 2500 armored vehicles ordered by homeland security. Use of drones here. The 6500 Moslems in the military. The moslems in his administration. I still don't understand how you can call what lesbians and gay men do as love. Its just a hurt on hurt codependent relationship that has 60% more disease than heterosexuals, and they live 20 yrs. less. So how does that make it good for homo's. Telling the truth, is not hate. Everyone is trying to redefine definitions so they can support there own position. They are trying to make truth relative to support whatever position they want to take. Its obvious by the design of men and women, what God meant. Its also obvious by the consequences, just like with any other sin, what God meant. But most dangerous of all, there is no conscience more seared and dead, than that of a homosexual. They can perform well to look normal, but it is all an act. They want you to think they are equal or better than hetero's, and by God, without the responsibility of kids and a wife, they can look better in some regards. But how gross is it for a child to have homo parents, daddy and daddy, mommy and mommy. How can you not see this. Its gross, nasty, vile. How can you call that love. Anyway, not a putdown, just an alert. Your are swimming in very dangerous waters with sharks. You have know idea what Barak and his supporters are up to, and that boggles my mind. Its something far beyond socialism. But even if it were only socialism, given the impoverished and tyrannical nature of all socialist governments, all of them, how can you possibly support that. All those idiots have to do is mention the abuses of the wealthy, which pale in comparison to the abuses on a population under socialism, and you run to there support. How did the professors at ASU make you so blind. Capitalism has nothing to do with the greed or money, but the model and structure within which one discovers there passion, how God made us to be and what he made us to do, and then having a way to use it to achieve the highest and best possible life and happiness, at least here on this globe. That is not even remotely possible under any other form of government. Its me being a landscaper, you working at a capitalist paving company, Clarissa doing her hair thing. Capitalism is capitalizing on opportunity. It only exist like that here. How in the world can you want that to die. It took Jesus Christ, and thousands of years of oppression to birth it, and now you want to kill it because of a few reject professors, and probably a few friends who drink the same kool aid. And as far as Mike thinking that the whole Bible is a metaphor, the miracles and all, I bet he would like to have one of those miracles about now, say? I mean when you say you pray, do you pray to the God and Jesus one and only of the Bible, or the great cosmos, the great spirit. Some enigmatic unknowable God made up by the deceived and perverted minds of men to promote their own evil desires over the blind masses. Barak Obama has almost succeeded in destroying the only thing left before he declares himself to be Moslem, and that is our government itself. He promotes such ridiculous laws that conservatives and Christians could obviously never vote for, and then pounds it home that they don't support him, that he tried to work with them, and that Congress is acting along party lines, rather than working for the good of the country. He wants to make them look so ineffective, that the people, of which you are one of his minions, will give him complete power and control to fix everything. At that time, he will round up all the Christians, because they are as extreme as the Islamics according to him, put them in concentration camps that he is already making, complete with thousand and thousands of plastic coffins, and give everyone else a chip to put in the arm, which you will gladly wear yourself, and be proud that he finally fixed everything, just like Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Mao and the others did. How can you not see what he is really up to. We need to have a talk about this and stop acting like everything is OK. I love you and Clarissa to death, but you are in love with the "John the Baptist" of the antichrist, or the antichrist himself. I can not rap my mind around that, and I can not ignore it any longer. Just like with all ravenous unrestrained sinners, the more power Barak gets, the more he bypasses Congress and sees he can get away with it, the more he wants. Its the law of diminishing returns, just like with drug addicts, sexaholics who have to continually do more and more perverse things to get the same high, money holics who will do anything to anyone to get it, its the same thing. How does this escape someone who is as smart as you are, and knowing what you know about God and the Bible. You must come to terms with this before it is too late. Football, work, life, love, all great, but there is a 900 pd guerilla in the room. Lets talk about him. I love you sweety, way too much to remain silent and hope you will figure this all out for yourself. I would be the worst dad if I did not address this, the worst. There is only one path way to heaven, not because I am blind and God is mean, but men are blind, and there is only one God, who sent his only Son. Other Gods are just made up in the minds of men. Only one God has intervened, and shown himself to man. Only one God who made earth, talks to his creation, helps his creation, loves his creation, and has sought to redeem us from our own acts. All other religions tell you just go out and do good things. But this does not change your heart, only Jesus can change the heart so that our good becomes the automatic extension of our relationship with him. We don't have to spend hours chanting, or clanging on gongs, or talking to dead relatives. We don't have to do good to cover our evil. Jesus covers our evil so we can be and do good. Lets come to agreement on these things over time, and in the power of Gods love. There is no freedom outside of Christ, and the entire history of man, and the history of this country prove that beyond argument. I love you love you, and this is why I send this. I pray that mikes fistula just disappears, and that he sees the power and glory of God. He needs to know God. I did not say he wasn't nice and wonderful, he is. I just want him to know God and the fullness of his love. Talk to you soon, Dad

Irish Senator thinks Mother's Day will be banned due to gay marriage...

Senator Fidelma Healy Eames swung for the fences earlier today with this little tweet about Mother's Day and the upcoming Marriage Referendum.

"Happy Mothers' day all! Hope we can continue to celebrate it after #SSM passed. In some US states Mothers & Father's Day banned #pcgonemad"

Samuel James #fundie patheos.com

First of all, Garbarino’s subtle implication that the reaction from pastors might be different if the mayor were not a “lesbian Democrat” is absurd, unfair and more than a tad manipulative. It also seems strange given that he admits that the request is “disturbing” and “a violation” of church-state relations. Is he implicating himself here?

Secondly, I don’t buy the “evangelism at any cost” argument. Yes, pastors should want government officials to hear the Gospel. Yes, the pastors of Jesus’s flocks should be preaching gospel-centered hope.

But a group of city attorneys’ scanning sermon manuscripts for the words “homosexual,” “gay,” and “sin” hardly constitutes an evangelistic encounter. Evangelism is not merely any in-your-face occurence of Bible + person; otherwise we should be encouraging Christians to–as the mayor’s office is doing–subvert law and order to get the message out, perhaps by trashing an abortion clinic and leaving tracts or by picketing a mosque. When Christians are careful to explain why such behavior is not acceptable, they emphasize that the how of Gospel ministry matters just as much as the what. The how of turning in sermon manuscripts to the city government would be an endorsement of injustice in the name of evangelism.

Third, the phrase “inflammatory untruths” is one that needs authoritative definition. The trick is deciding who has that authority. Does Mayor Parker? Does the Texas legislature? Does each congregation decide? Garbarino?

Arguing that pastors should have nothing to hide is the right response to the wrong issue. If this case involved a local pastor’s running for public office, then we could naturally expect his and his church’s teachings to come under scrutiny. In that case I too would say that pastors ought have nothing shameful to hide. But this subpoena concerns local pastors who aren’t even named in the civil suit against the government. The possibility of embarrassing or unbiblical teaching is as irrelevant here as the possibility that Michael Brown would have grown up to be a criminal. It’s a mistake of sequence: The mayor’s office is unjust and unlawful in demanding these sermons, therefore, the pastors should not have to justify themselves to it.

I understand Garbarino’s concern that Christians maintain primary citizenship in the kingdom of God and not conflate that with citizenship in America. That’s a message that needs to be heard. But it’s not the point here. The point is that submitting to this gross act of bullying would be disastrous not just for religious folk but for citizens of Houston in general. Government transgression of civil liberty doesn’t just happen to one particular group; when it happens, it is a violation of everybody’s civil liberty. Pastoral resistance to Mayor Parker’s demands is crucial for the upholding of law on behalf of everyone in Houston, straight or gay, black or white, pastor or layperson.
