Anti-Christ Crown Revealed: Suspect Biden’s First Visit at RAF Mildenhall

The first occasion for travel of the Biden Coup Faux Presidency was in obeisance to the Crown  – landing at RAF Mildenhall with British Subject Kamala Harris, the daughter of a Jamaican UK father, in tow. Please see Kamala’s birth certificate by clicking here.

The Rothschilds-actuated Crown is the Satanic prime mover in all America’s woes  — a fact that must be refreshed to the American People’s comprehension promptly and widely.

They had five months to plan this look — this telegraphed Confirmation of Treason. Note: the Chinese Body Guard of  Suspect Joseph Biden.

Exiled Cuban Journalist: ‘Socialism Is Institutionalized Envy’

Approximately 36% of young Americans, ages 18 to 22, hold a positive view of socialism. However, for exiled Cuban journalist Yoe Suárez, this positive view of socialism is not based on reality. On a recent episode of the Outstanding podcast hosted by Joseph Backholm, Suárez and Washington Stand Editor-in-Chief Jared Bridges discuss their firsthand experiences with socialism and its wide-ranging consequences.

“The first time I ate a tangerine in years was here in [the] USA,” Suárez said. “It’s amazing because Cuba is a tropical island, you know? It should have fruits there. That’s an image that can maybe portray what’s happening in Cuba.” Suárez went on to discuss the various crises Cubans endure, including blackouts, inaccessible medicine, and a lack of necessities like food and milk for families. When Backholm asked Suárez what the government’s objective was, he replied, “The principal goal is political control. And then they have to build a narrative of goodness behind that.”

Bridges shared his experience living under a socialist government in Minsk, Belarus. “At the time, the things I ran into was just seeing how that system for that long a time oppressed people,” he said. He discussed his inability to find prescribed medicine after going to seven different pharmacies. “To put it in perspective today, here in America, I’ll go to the drug store and get upset if I have to wait 15 minutes.” Bridges further noted that his experience shed light on how, rather than everyone being equal in their belongings and opportunities under socialism, people are stripped of basic needs including medicine. “What became evident to me was that something is not what it says it is,” Bridges stated.

Backholm wondered how to change the phenomenon happening “here in the United States where you have a growing number of young people who actually seem enthusiastic about socialism,” with Bridges adding how this enthusiasm takes place amongst Christians as well.

“The saddest thing is that socialism takes a lot from envy,” Suárez said. People want what they can’t have, and, for Suárez, socialism feeds the flame of envy toward those who have more. “Socialism is institutionalized envy. It’s that. Socialism is just that.” He went on to observe that the fundamental issue is when too much power is centralized in one place. Sharing is good, but it must come from a place of voluntary charity. As Suárez stated, “If it’s voluntary, it’s charity. And charity is good.” But as Backholm added, “Compelled generosity is not generosity, it is theft. It is totalitarian. It is robbery.”

Backholm further pointed out how our sinful nature, whether living under capitalism or socialism, leads to the exploitation of others and often manifests into greed. “If our hearts are unregulated, we will take advantage of other people to our own benefit,” Backholm stated. “What a biblical worldview argues for is a decentralization of power. … The free marketplace, by nature, decentralizes power.” In response, Bridges reflected on how a free market society also gives us the ability to speak out.

When the discussion turned to equality, it was noted that the desire for ultimate equality does not have an end because nothing will ever be enough to satisfy. Suárez, for instance, was kicked out of his home country for speaking out against socialism. As Bridges pointed out, this socialist view of equality does not lead to actual equality, but rather a totalitarian sense of political control where the government tells you what you can and cannot do with your goods, needs, and opinions.

For Backholm, Suárez, and Bridges, the ability to distinguish between voluntary charity and compelled generosity is the difference between socialism and capitalism. Neither is without flaw, but as Suárez stated, “The solution to a headache is not cancer.”

‘They’re Forced to Celebrate It’: Parents of Girls Losing to Boys Speak Out

“How do you not understand that’s unfair?” It’s a question parents across the country are asking, as more and more of their daughters watch everything they train for vanish. For moms and dads at California’s CIF-North Coast Section Meet, the outrage reverberated across the stands. They watched as Adeline Johnson, an 18-year-old senior, was eliminated from the state track and field championships — all because a biological boy decided to compete as a girl. “There’s no way this should be allowed,” one parent fumed. And yet, if Joe Biden has his way, it will be the future of sports for every girl in America.

Until recently, the boy named Athena Ryan competed in men’s cross country, finishing a distant 63rd in the 2021 men’s 5,000 meters. But this past weekend, running as a girl, he placed second in the 1,600 — knocking real women down or off the podium. After the race, Ryan told reporters he wasn’t “expecting” to run as well as he did. “I dropped like 17 seconds on my season’s best in the past two weeks,” he bragged. “I was just coming here trying to break 5 — just glad I finished it out.”

People in the stands watched as Ryan blew past runners in the backfield toward the end of the race. “You either think that he is holding back,” a parent said, “or it’s his lactic threshold — which means he can access energy in the final part of the race. Girls can’t do that,” the spectator continued. “There is a physical way in which they race. Having a boy in there just throws off the mechanics of the race.”

To the families who’ve helped their daughters train and shuttled them back and forth to meets, the whole sport is becoming a sham. “I 100% percent empathize with the need to belong and the desire to compete,” another anonymous parent said. “[But] you have to understand how hard these girls work to do this.”

Johnson, who will watch Ryan take her place at the state finals later this spring, went viral for giving a subtle thumbs-down during the medal ceremony for her race. To some parents, that was a bold gesture since the girls have been advised to ignore the unfairness of it all and smile along.

“It’s heartbreaking to see what happens to these kids and how scared they are to even show the slightest bit of body language that might indicate they aren’t happy with it,” a family member told The Daily Caller. “They’re, like, forced to celebrate it.”

Worse, that protocol seems to extend to parents, who explain, “We have all been advised that we are not protected. As a family, anything we say falls under the student code of conduct [which demands conformity to the trans agenda]. If we don’t follow the guidelines, then it is considered bullying.” And since “they can’t protect our girls from being disqualified,” it makes sense “why no one wants to speak out.”

“Everybody is too terrified to challenge it. There is the fear of what will happen, what will be taken away, and if you won’t be allowed to race — or if you’ll be canceled.”

Even spectators were silenced, after security decided to remove a group of protestors holding a long banner that read, “Protect Female Sports.” The video, which got plenty of attention on social media, shows the group being confronted by another woman, who calls their sign “disgusting” and “offensive.” For others, however, the escort out of the stadium was a moment of clarity. “Many parents were completely unaware there was a boy competing in girls’ races,” the Independent Council on Women’s Sports (ICONS) explained.

And not just one boy, as former University of Kentucky swimmer and Title IX advocate Riley Gaines pointed out. A “2nd trans-identifying male, Lorelei Barrett is headed to the @CIFState CA track championships next weekend,” she tweeted. “Along with male Athena Ryan, he’s also qualified in the ‘Girls 1600m’ race. Barrett had qualified for the girls state cross country championships last fall …”

Meanwhile, the Biden administration is continuing its obsession on erasing women with a new rule that would wipe away state protections for girls’ sports. Now that public comments have been collected, it’s only a matter of time before Title IX is effectively wiped away.

This, critics say, despite a resurfaced study from the federal government’s own National Institutes of Health which found that biological boys are “faster, stronger, fitter” after taking female hormones.

“A major review quietly re-shared by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) last August suggests that early exposure to testosterone means trans women possess at least eight physical and mental attributes that could give them an advantage in sports — even if they make the change relatively early.

“Findings showed trans women had greater muscle mass and bone density, which aid strength, power and durability, plus bigger lungs and higher oxygen levels, which help with endurance, as well as increased connections in the brain responsible for spatial awareness, which could help with agility.”

In other words, Family Research Council’s Meg Kilgannon says, “The Biden administration is further confusing and pressuring schools to adopt these policies, while acknowledging that boys and girls are different and boys have an advantage over girls in competitive sports.”

Parents need to understand, she told The Washington Stand, this isn’t just happening at public schools. “This story is an example of what can happen in private schools when decision-making authority is outsourced to sports’ governing bodies or academic associations. Some of the most woke schools in the country are exclusive prep schools [like Sonoma Academy where these athletes were from].”

There’s a lesson here for religious schools, Kilgannon urged: “Make sure your governing documents are sufficient to withstand an attack from within. Mary Hasson’s work at Person and Identity Project is a great example of the kinds of safeguards, programs, and professional development religious schools need to protect your children and your institution against this ideology.”

Journalism: Bring Back The Old-Time Muckrakers

Given the low esteem in which sentient readers and viewers hold today’s Mainstream Media (MSM), one wonders if there was ever a high point in the history of American investigative journalism. Yes, there was! The prime example can be found in the January 1903 issue (yes, that far back in time) of McClure’s Magazine (1893 to 1929).

Back then, S.S. McClure and his business partner John Sandborn Phillips assembled a talented staff of investigative journalists and backed their investigations to the hilt and with total disregard for the wealth and power of those whom their investigations exposed. Ida Tarbell, Ray Stannard Baker, Lincoln Steffens, and Upton Sinclair wrote for McClure’s Magazine. Collectively, they became known as the “muckrakers.” An unfortunate appellation that took the glitter off of their great service to the public.

Appearing monthly, McClure’s Magazine serialized stories about the brutal and corrupt business practices of Standard Oil, U.S. Steel, General Electric, the Meat Packing Industry, Railroad Monopolies, Big City Machine Politics, and tenement-packing landlords. Frequent contributors to McClure’s were: Willa Cather, Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Mark Twain. Without McClure’s Magazine, it is doubtful that President Teddy Roosevelt could have ever busted the Trusts.

If Ida Tarbell (1857-1944) and her colleagues were alive today, the Durham Report would be front-page news for days on end. We would have the entire list of Jeffrey Epstein’s clients. We would have the entire text of the manifesto of the Tranny Nashville school shooter. The FBI probably could not have hidden Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop for over a year.

A revealing feature often used by Tucker Carlson on Fox News was to juxtapose clips from MSM TV news programs, showing each talking head repeating the exact same language as the others ripped from the pages of the latest “Talking Points” from the Democratic National Committee. One would think the talking heads would at least change some adjectives or rearrange the word order. But, knowing no shame, they often do not bother.

Today’s Russia is a prime example of what a government-controlled media can do to keep the general public in ignorance. Work-a-day Russians are little bothered by the war in Ukraine because Vladimir Putin is mostly fighting in Ukraine with mercenaries, called the Wagner Group, and with cannon fodder released from Russian prisons.

Odds are Russians know little, if anything, about their military’s resupply problems. Apparently, the Ukrainians have severely damaged portions of the ten-mile-long Kerch Strait Bridge, cutting off supplies to Russian forces in southern Ukraine and Crimea. Moreover, the Ukrainians are blowing up Russian resupply trucks, trains, and even rail lines.

But the Russians are far from losing a war Russia cannot afford to lose without coming apart at the seams. Yet these supply setbacks must be hurting because Putin is increasingly talking up the utility of tactical nuclear weapons. As if any kind of nuclear weapons could be used without destroying all life on this planet for the next several millennia.

Ergo: it is very dangerous to live in a world where Russians and Americans alike are given the Mushroom Treatment, i.e. kept in the dark and fed a lot of male bovine excreta.

Radical Jayapal Threatens ‘Huge Backlash…in the Streets’ if Biden Negotiates Budget Cuts

During ongoing talks to raise the debt ceiling, radical Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) told CNN on Tuesday that any cuts to wasteful spending, including obsolete pandemic funding, would bring a backlash in the streets.

Although the White House claimed Biden would not negotiate with Republicans on reducing wasteful spending, the administration engaged with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on spending cuts, an idea that enraged the far left.

“I think there would be a huge backlash from our entire House democratic caucus, certainly the progressives — but also in the streets,” Jayapal  warned.

She tried to couch her statement by pinning Biden to the previously passed reckless spending that fueled systemic inflation.

“It’s important we don’t take steps back from the very strong agenda that president himself shepherd and led over the past two years,” she said.

In January 2019, Jayapal stated that President Trump’s “ultimate goal is … to make America pure in the sense of not having immigrants, not having folks of color here and shutting down every form of legal immigration.…”  Trump’s policies, she said, were “deeply offensive” to the “soul” and “psyche” of “people of color” who “are seeking asylum [and] who can no longer can get in, even though it’s legal to seek asylum, and not just at a legal port of entry.”

Is America Still Worth Fighting For?

With another Memorial Day upon us, we may consider the question: Is America still worth fighting for?

On November 21, 1864, President Lincoln wrote to a Mrs. Bixby of Massachusetts, who had lost five sons in the Civil War.

He penned, “I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.”

But, alas, today’s military—like so many institutions in our country—is going “woke.” That is to say that they are being infected with a cultural Marxism that has re-written our history, making America out to be irredeemably evil.

One regular contributor to NPR said several months ago: “[T]he United States does not yet have the stomach to look over its shoulder and stare directly at the evil on which this great country stands. That is why slavery is not well taught in our schools.”

To this sentiment, conservative commentator and author Michael Medved responded: “Dr. Martin Luther King, by contrast, never dismissed his American heritage and identity. He summoned his nation to honor its highest ideals, rather than disparaging its claims to greatness and goodness. His example stressed American possibilities and promises, not guilt or accusations concerning its multiple shortcomings.”

But what the cultural Marxists propagate is that we’re just as racist a nation as we’ve ever been. There’s been no progress, supposedly. If you deny that, then you’re a racist, they say.

No doubt America has had many flaws. But the brilliance of this nation is the foundation the founders laid whereby we could correct these flaws.

America is a grand experiment, encapsulated by an idea which flies in the face of Marxism: self-rule under God. Remove either part, the “self-rule” or the “under God” (as our internal and external enemies would like to see happen) and we would no longer have America as founded.

As noted, wokeism is infesting today’s military. Even the U.S. Navy partnered with a Drag Queen influencer on social media to promote recruitment.

The offices of Senator Marco Rubio and Congressman Chip Roy have produced an eye-opening report called, Woke Warfighters: How Political Ideology is Weakening America’s Military.

They write, “Our military’s singular purpose is to ‘provide for the common defense’ of our nation. It cannot be turned into a left-wing social experiment. It cannot be used as a cudgel against America itself. And it cannot be paralyzed by fear of offending the sensibilities of Ivy League faculty lounges of progressive pundits.”

After all, they add, “The world is a dangerous place.”

Basically we’re raising up young people to hate their own country, warns Dr. William Donohue, the president of the Catholic League, in his new book, The War on Virtue: How the Ruling Class Is Killing the American Dream. I got to speak with him on a radio segment recently.

In The War on Virtue, he writes, “If Americans become convinced that their country is fatally flawed, why will they defend it?”

I asked him to elaborate on this quote. First, he mentioned how the military is down 25% in reaching its recruitment goal.

Then he told me, “We’re teaching kids to hate America, not in every school but in too many of them. And they’re starting in kindergarten, going right through to graduate school. That’s what they teach—that America is a racist country that rips people off.”

Donohue elaborated, “If you teach people to hate their own country, the greatest country in the history of the world, then don’t be surprised when some young people—who’ve been indoctrinated, basically brainwashed, by these left wing college professors and in high school—don’t be surprised if they say, ‘Hey, why would I want to defend this country? After all, we’re not any better than anybody else?’ It’s almost a form of national suicide.”

Donohue said ordinary Americans need to push back, like what we saw in the recent response to Bud Light giving in to “transgender mania.”

“It’s a dangerous time,” said Dr. Peter Lillback, the founder of Providence Forum, for which I serve as executive director.

But he also told me, “There’s never a last word for a nation until God’s Providence says ‘You’re done.’ I’m not ready to give up on America, there’s too much treasure of great freedoms, of wisdom, of biblical truth, of even of sending the Gospel out to the nations. There’s always a chance for revival, reformation, new beginnings.”

Because the foundation is still there, America is even yet worth fighting for. But those foundations are being eroded, day by day. It would seem that we are faced with a choice of two options for our national future: revival or ruin.

The Eyes are the Windows of the Soul

Observing the plague of virulent Socialism and Marxism infecting America, I am reminded of my own youth in England and of a particular incident when I was but seventeen years of age, which both changed my life and my political outlook.

As we know, young people have always been – and certainly are today – filled with idealistic notions. That is good and is part of growing up. I certainly was idealistic and, not surprisingly, had automatically wished to assert my own ideas in opposition to those of my father. I loved him greatly, but he was a staunch member of the British Conservative party and so I foolishly chose – to his dismay – to join the left-wing and radically Socialist opposition Labour Party.

Now my father’s relatives being mostly working-class folks were all automatically wedded to Britain’s Labour Party that claimed to be for the workers. In fact, Communist ideas were front and center among so many Brits in the 1950’s and 60’s. The old Socialist song, “We’ll keep the Red flag flying here” was often sung along with the parading of the slogan; “Workers of the World Unite.”

Back now to that incident when I was about seventeen. I was getting off a double decker bus in my hometown. An elderly man was boarding the bus and he saw a lapel badge I was wearing. He asked what was written on it and I proudly and naively said, “Oh, it shows I’m a member of the Young Socialists.”

It was what I saw in the eyes of that elderly stranger that so profoundly shook me. The look was one of weary, even ageless despair, and I could not stop thinking about it. I later learned how many older people shared that same anguished look when similarly confronted by youthful ignorance and naivety. I also later learned of the horrific history of worldwide Marxist, Communist and Socialist state control and the vast numbers of hapless people who had died horribly under their heartless regimes.

I soon left the Young Socialists, outraged at what I had read. It was then that I grew up. I was comforted by Winston Churchill’s allegedly famous quote: “If a man is not a socialist when he is 20, he has no heart; If he is not a conservative by the time he is 40, he has no brain.” Of course, Churchill famously went on to also say the following:

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Perhaps the greatest conservative successor to Winston Churchill in Britain was Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the daughter of a grocer, known as the iron lady and of whom it was said, ironically, that she was the only man in the Cabinet. She had pointed out that, “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

Here in our American towns and cities the Socialist youth today now go by names such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter. Unwittingly they are now the violent and very fascist heirs to Hitler’s thugs. even though they falsely preach with utter idiocy that they are anti-fascists.

Traditional temples of free thought, our Universities and Colleges, have now become academic gulags where only so-called progressive (aka regressive) speech is permitted. Watching them howl at any conservative speaker, should one show up to speak, and you will see the extent of the leftwing rot.

Of course, Communism in America never died. It simply changed its name. We now hear leftists calling themselves progressives when they are the “regressive” political plague of the 21st century.

In the nation’s universities or, what Michael Savage once called, “the universities of lower learning,” those rioting youth of the sixties are now ensconced as aged leftwing and Socialist tenured professors, spewing corrosive Marxist twaddle to the current crop of idealistic youth. The generations come and go, but students are now political fodder on an ever-fateful Socialist conveyor belt which works tirelessly to bring empty headed youth to unknowingly enable a Marxist revolution in America.

The left is divisive. Socialism separates people by class and by race. This is its powerful weapon of choice, along with its manufactured support of multi-gender identities as we march towards what may well be a most fateful coming general election in America’s history.

Conservatism eschews and disdains class, race or multiple gender identities. It prefers values of character, individuality, personal freedom, a love of America and its wondrous Constitution and the enduring bedrock of Judeo-Christian civilization.

I think back now with gratitude to that older man who long ago boarded that bus and whose eyes told me all I needed to know.

Transgenderism on Trial

I routinely ask people in social gatherings ‘how do we win – how do we defeat the Left?’  One answer that’s come back is lawfare, tying up our opponents in court.  Transgenderism is one area where lawfare could actually work.  Legal action has the potential to bring down the entire Transgender-Industrial Complex.

To that end, I have created a new section on my website – Transgenderism on Trial – to foment more litigation against doctors, psychologists, school administrators, teachers, and other instrumentalities of the Transgender-Industrial Complex who are either out to make a buck or to make America a communist country.

I don’t throw around the word ‘communism’ lightly, only when I have the goods and here I most definitely do.  The first thing you will see in my new transgenderism section is a video showing four transgender activists openly and explicitly discussing how the purpose of transgenderism is to usher communism into the United States.  If you think communism is cute, we’ll see how cute you think it is when communism arrives here and you get the midnight knock on the door from the secret police to haul you off to the gulag for thought crimes.

Transgenderism on Trial starts with a news feed.   I am the only one collecting all the stories from all around the country about litigation against health care providers and school districts pushing life-altering drugs and irreversible mutilating surgery on defenseless kids.  The news out of Missouri is amazing.   A trans whistleblower documented enough corrupt practices at a gender clinic in St. Louis to bring a whole-of-government investigation down on the clinic that may result in civil enforcement actions and criminal charges.  The practices include pushing transitioning on kids without psychological assessments in individual cases, prescribing drugs without parental consent or after consent was revoked, lack of full disclosure of the adverse and long-term consequences of sex change drugs and surgery, false claims children would commit suicide if not allowed to transition, and other high pressure sales tactics.  The investigation will determine whether school officials conspired with clinicians to form a school-to-clinic pipeline of steady business for the clinic.

That’s just one case.  My news feeds chronicles other cases where doctors are being sued for botched surgeries, medical experimentation with unstudied or unapproved drugs, and pushing transgender drugs and surgery instead of providing counseling.  Cases are also sprouting up against school districts for transitioning kids without parental knowledge or consent, violating teachers’ religious beliefs, and firing teachers who refuse to lie to parents or otherwise get with the transgender program.

Transgenderism on Trial provides a list of law firms and legal foundations around the country bringing these types of cases or expressing a desire to enter the field.  These are the courtroom warriors who vindicating parental rights, pursuing medical malpractice claims, and taking action against so-called transgender sanctuary states that lure kids from other parts of the country.

Using my collection of parental resources, parents can arm themselves with the facts and learn how to deal with gender-questioning children and high-pressure sales tactics from clinicians and school administrators.  In addition to books and parental guides, the list of resources tells parents how to find support groups and objective counselors who will give parents unbiased information about the subject.

Finally, there’s a page on the most despicable high-pressure sales tactic of all – telling parents their children will commit suicide if not allowed to transition.  A second set of researchers reexamined the raw data from the original study making this claim and found that the data did not support the study’s conclusions.   When confronted with this information, the University of Washington which participated in the original study tried to cover it up.  Other early studies making similar claims were later found to be flawed for, among other things, failing to track outcomes long enough to draw reliable conclusions and hiding raw data from other researchers.  Finally, the page describes two other studies showing people who transition are MORE likely – not less likely – to commit suicide.  Lies, misrepresentations, hiding data, ignoring later studies – there’s enough on the page to completely debunk the high pressure sales tactics the snake-oil salesmen are using on parents.

Plaintiffs of the World, Unite!  Let’s bring down the communist transgender activists who are trying to destroy the country and the doctors, school administrators, and other financially self-interested useful idiots who are getting paid handsomely for doing their bidding.  There’s nothing like legal liability and a blizzard of court cases to focus the mind.  Let’s swarm them and put them out of business.

Politics – Resounding Success or Dismal Failure?

I am fully aware that the title of this article appears to offer a contradiction, but I am prepared to give an explanation that should, hopefully, clear up any confusion.

I often quote Ayn Rand, author of “Atlas Shrugged”, “Anthem” and “Fountainhead”, and one of my favorite quotes from her is: “Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong”.

So, what IS a premise? From the Cambridge English Dictionary, premise is defined as  a noun, “an idea or theory on which a statement or action is based; and also a verb, “to base a theory, argument, etc. on an idea, thought, or belief.

For the believer, a premise is a ‘starting point’ for deciding which of the many ideas he might encounter in life are worthy of consideration, and adoption, which will eventually form your personal belief system. As events in life occur, many times one’s premises about these events must be changed as knowledge and wisdom are increased in the believer’s life. Changing one’s premises, as one gains wisdom and knowledge through God’s word, is a vital part of growing in Christ. Do NOT be afraid to examine your premises and change them as needed.

If one of your premises is that politics is a beneficial system that provides for the betterment of humanity, and you eventually see, or possibly see NOW that that is NOT the case, then your premise was wrong. Research further and see how that premise needs to be changed.

The title of the article proposes that politics was/is a success while also being a failure. You decide.

The Success of Politics

What we all know as ‘politics’ is more than just a ‘system of governance’ that seems prevalent in nearly every government on earth. While most people seem to regard politics as a ‘necessary evil’, it is UN-necessary and IS completely evil. It is the system devised by Satan to gain and maintain control over people and nations and has been around since the events recorded in the Book of Genesis with Satan gaining, through lies and deceptions, the control over ‘the world’ that was initially given to Adam and Eve.

Politics was formed as a ‘control system’ when the first humans created by God were approached by a minion of Satan/Lucifer and were asked some questions about their trust in, and belief of, God and His word. Though we have no idea how long that conversation lasted, the end result was a resounding success—for Lucifer. He had obviously been waiting in the dark shadows (where most politicians do their best work) and watching to see what God would do as He was surveying the condition of the earth (see Genesis 1:1).

What would a political success look like from Satan’s vantage point? One must understand what his goal was in approaching God’s new creatures and questioning the word and authority of God who gave His man CONTROL OVER His new earth creation.

Satan was likely still reeling from his defeat in his futile attempt to elevate himself above the throne of God. Being a prideful creature, desperate to regain some control over the earth, and knowing that God had given that control and authority to Adam and Eve, he knew he would need to trick them into relinquishing it to him. Obviously, deception would be one way to proceed, along with tempting them to desire to “be like gods” by acting in complete contradiction to God’s commands.

It was at this point that Satan earned the title given him by Jesus and recorded in John 8:44. There Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees, the religious leaders of the Jews who were also the preeminent politicians of Jesus day. He said, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

What was the first recorded lie in the Bible? When Satan, through the serpent, questioned Eve about God’s command regarding the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, he said “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.  God’s command to Adam did not mention touching the fruit, only forbade eating the fruit.

When Satan said to Eve,  “Ye shall not surely die. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:4-5). That was the second recorded lie in the Bible and it directly contradicted God’s word to His new creation, recorded in Genesis 2:17: “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Satan’s ploy worked on the innate nature of man to desire to  “be like gods”, having the same power, authority and control God has, and he was right on target with that deceptive tactic.

It is so telling that there had not been even ONE recorded lie until the first politician arrived on the scene and from there, everything went downhill quickly. Neither humanity nor the earth has been the same since, with lies and deception being the modus operandi of nearly every political system, and most of the politicians, in the world today.

I sometimes wonder if Satan was surprised by how easily he was able to deceive the woman and gain the control he was seeking. In any case, with his political success he was able to bring a curse upon the earth and all its inhabitants. I know, I know, God stated that because of Adam’s sin and rebellion, the earth was cursed, but the actions of Satan are what started the entire process of the curse that still today results in the death and destruction that has destroyed so many millions of human lives.

So from that standpoint, politics as a “system of control” using deception and lies, was a tremendous success. As a result of his success, Satan was able to begin a 6000 year reign of terror on the earth that has damaged and/or destroyed much of what God created.

The Failure of Politics

As great as the success of politics was, and is, for Satan, it has been the absolute biggest, and most destructive, failure for all of humanity. One only needs to consider what the human race lost when our primal parents gave in to the deception that changed everything God had created and given to his man.

God gave Adam and Eve ‘dominionover the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Along with the dominion, man was expected to care for and dress the perfect garden created for him; in other words, man lacked nothing needed for a happy and successful existence. He neither needed to break the ground to sow seed, nor break a sweat to produce his food. The earth had been blessed by God to produce everything they needed in abundance. Life before the curse caused by their disobedience was PERFECT.

We cannot even imagine a life on earth before the curse, or what life might be now if Satan had not been successful in deceiving the woman. As beautiful as some aspects of nature on the planet are, without the curse placed on it as a result of the success of “The Politician” (another name for Satan), we would all be living in a veritable paradise.

The system of politics, built on lies and deception and introduced by Satan, controls, or at least dominates, every government on earth. While that control seems wonderful for the politicians whose pockets bulge with their ill-gotten gain, with nearly all of them becoming wealthy beyond belief, the lives of ordinary people are not quite so glamorous. The endless and needless laws passed by politicians in governments have certainly not made life better for any of us; on the contrary, whenever a new law is passed by the US Congress, it usually means additional suffering for the average taxpayer. Every time the Congress passes a new bill and POTUS signs it into law, it will mean an increase in spending that must be funded by all US taxpayers.

The massive number of laws passed by the US Congress and signed into law by various presidents over the last 40 years have brought an unpayable level of debt upon this nation and all its citizens. Proverbs 22:7 states, “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender”. The debt now crushing the US citizen means that a formerly ‘free nation’ is now the slave to all the other nations that have funded the uncontrolled spending of US politicians. Just as Adam and Eve became slaves to Satan, the ‘new god of this world’, until that debt is paid, the United States will never again be truly free.

I am extremely frustrated that so many Americans still believe our political system exists to make life better for us. These deceived and deluded people are constantly putting their misplaced trust in this or that politician, none of whom is worthy of ANY trust, and I guarantee you, they WILL be disappointed when that politician does NOT accomplish what they promised to do for Americans. But, as they have done for many decades, they will just sigh and say, “Oh well, next election we’ll win the Congress, or the White House and that will finally change things.” But it won’t ‘change things’ because the ‘system’ does not want to be changed; the bloodsucking parasites who own the system will not allow it to be changed. To do so would dry up their endless flow of unearned money and would cramp their luxurious lifestyles. The lifeblood of the political system, the money that flows like the mighty Mississippi River, is what draws so many people into that system, and causes them to become something that never dreamed they would be.

I envisage, with at least some small hope, the day when people wake up and understand just how much damage politics has done and is still doing to their lives. I’m not pointing fingers at any political party more than another, as they are all guilty of the financial, cultural and social crises that now have made the US a joke and byword in the world. The political system OWNS the politicians who engage in it and that system is owned, in turn, by the globalist banking dynasties, corporate conglomerates and super wealthy elites of the world who in turn are owned by Satan.

Until the entire system is removed, nothing will change for the better. Politics can NEVER be a success for the individual citizen who only wants to be left alone to live, peacefully, quietly, in complete freedom.

Instead of living in freedom, peace and quietness, as we are told will happen if we pray according to God’s word, the people of the United States are subjected to the insane ideas of a small group of people who are completely dedicated to the destruction of our freedom, our peace and our quietness. We are subjected to the most palpable fear ever experienced in the history of our nation. That fear stems from the looming loss of our first freedom, the right of “free speech”. If Americans are silenced from expressing our personal views in any public forum, then we are no longer a free nation, and have become slaves to a small but powerful group that not only denies the existence of any of our rights, but also denies the existence of the God Who originally provided those rights.

For the people described in the last sentence, politics, and the entire political system, will always be a TOTAL FAILURE.


I truly wish I had a solution to the horrific mess politics has caused, not just in the US, but in the whole world. I continue to hear commentators insist that we, as Christians, MUST take part in the political system so that we can gain our share of the control that everyone seems to desire. What they fail to realize is that politics is a “worldly system”, initiated by Satan himself and perpetuated by every person who gets involved in it. There is NO GODLINESS whatsoever in politics, only evil, corruption, greed, and lust for the power that once belonged to Adam. However, mankind gave that power to a fallen angel who has used it very successfully to destroy billions of people in the last 6000 years.

The only human capable of handling the kind of power and control that once was Adam’s is the man, the second Adam, Christ Jesus, and until the lease on the earth that was given to the first Adam has expired, Jesus will NOT be stepping in to solve all the world’s problems. He came to earth originally as the Lamb of God to provide a way for all mankind to prosper as Adam would have, but mankind rejected Him and chose Satan’s system instead.

Since that time, mankind’s ability to govern himself has proven to be a complete failure, but when Jesus returns, He will arrive on planet earth, NOT as a lamb, but as the King of kings, and His first action will be to eliminate the ugly, corrupt political system that has dominated the lives of billions, leaving a wake of death and destruction; He will do this by eliminating ALL politicians who have rejected Him and by starting a new world kingdom that will cover the whole earth, and it will have only one Head: Jesus Christ.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6-7 (emphasis mine).

I know there are many who will insist that we, as Christians, must partake in the political system to ensure that we are treated fairly by “the system’, and that our voices can be heard, but when has that ever been true? If a Christian tries to have a voice, using the foul system of politics, the demonic power of “the system” will not only drown out that voice, it will eliminate it if possible. Remember the account of John the Baptist who was “the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight” (Mark 1:3). Remember also that John the Baptist was killed by the political system of his time for “trying to have a voice”. But that did not stop him for crying in the wilderness, and preparing the way of the Lord. He was not afraid to do as God commanded him even at the cost of His life.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:15-18 (emphasis mine)

If a Christian can enter politics with a pure, clean heart and a desire to truly change the status quo of the system, and still remain as Paul exhorted in his letters, then possibly some good can come from it. However, the problem is that the system does not like change, especially that encouraged or initiated by Christians. It was started by Lucifer, has been grown and maintained by Lucifer and his minions for centuries and to allow for a change that will eliminate the greed, corruption and unrighteousness from it WILL be hard-fought by Satan. But be prepared for a fight on Satan’s turf; that alone gives him an advantage that will be difficult to overcome, UNLESS, you are truly commanded by God to get into that fight.

I will close with this word: If you are determined to enter the foul world of politics and still try to maintain a pure, clean heart, please be prepared for the battle of your life. Satan is still “the god of this world and he does not like interlopers trying to change HIS world. Be ready to count the cost of your decision, using the words of Jesus as a guide:

And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.  Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Luke 14:27-31

Dutch Holocaust Memorial of Names Dedicated by Dutch Auschwitz Committee

Very near my home this monument has been erected.

Seventy years after the Second World War, more than 102,000 victims of the Holocaust will finally have their own memorial.

In Amsterdam, a memorial has been erected with the names of all the Dutch Holocaust victims.

This will finally provide the Netherlands with a tangible memorial where the 102,000 Jewish victims and 220 Sinti and Roma victims can be commemorated individually and collectively.

Up to now, no memorial in the Netherlands has listed each individual Holocaust victim by name. For surviving relatives, a place to commemorate family members is invaluable.

In addition, a memorial listing more than 102,000 names serves as a reminder to current and future generations of the dangers of racism and discrimination.

King to unveil National Holocaust Names Memorial

On Sunday afternoon 19 September 2021, His Majesty the King, together with Jacques Grishaver, chairman of the Dutch Auschwitz Committee, will unveil the new Holocaust Names Memorial in Amsterdam.

More than 75 years after World War II, a memorial dedicated to the over 102,000 Dutch victims of the Holocaust without a grave will finally be unveiled in the Netherlands. Designed by the Polish-American architect Daniël Libeskind, the memorial is located on Weesperstraat in Amsterdam. During a private ceremony on 19 September in the nearby courtyard garden of the Protestant Deaconry, Prime Minister Mark Rutte and City Mayor Femke Halsema will be among those to address a limited gathering of invited guests.
King Willem-Alexander, together with Jacques Grishaver, will then unveil the memorial in the presence of a number of survivors and descendants.

The National Holocaust Names Memorial is a tangible memorial where 102,000 Jews and 220 Sinti and Roma can be remembered both individually and collectively. This is the first memorial in the Netherlands that lists each individual Dutch victim of the Holocaust by name.

NAACP Issues Hysterical ‘Travel Advisory’ Warning Black Americans of ‘Open Hostility’ in Florida

In a ridiculously empty gesture of race-mongering, black Americans were issued an advisory warning for travel to Florida on Saturday by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

The advisory “comes in direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis’ [R-FL] aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.” The group warns any black travelers to the Sunshine State to be wary of the “open hostility” directed at them.

In the letter, the group said DeSantis has signed several “anti-civil rights” measures into law, such as the Stop W.O.K.E Act which prohibits teachers from promoting the divisive Marxist subversion of Critical Race Theory in K-12 schools. DeSantis also banned an Advanced Placement African American Studies course to be taught in public schools, stating he was not opposed to schools teaching black history, but he does not want schools to push an ideology or impose “some rote talking points” on “political skirmishes of the day.”

NAACP President & CEO Derrick Johnson (pictured above) pontificated, “Under the leadership of Governor Desantis, the state of Florida has become hostile to Black Americans and in direct conflict with the democratic ideals that our union was founded upon. He should know that democracy will prevail because its defenders are prepared to stand up and fight. We’re not backing down, and we encourage our allies to join us in the battle for the soul of our nation.”

When the idea of a travel advisory to the state was first floated by state NAACP leadership in March, DeSantis responded, “This is a stunt to try to do that. It’s a pure stunt and fine, if you want to waste your time on a stunt, that’s fine. But I’m not wasting my time on your stunts.”

259 Known Connections

During the Great Depression of the 1930s, the NAACP began to focus heavily on “economic justice,” meaning more government control over the American economy, in an effort to redistribute wealth and increase income equality.

Roy Wilkins, a longtime NAACP staffer, effusively praised the Communist Party for the assistance it gave to black Americans. Moreover, Wilkins was affiliated with a number of Communist fronts and enterprises from 1937 until at least 1949. (In 1955 he would become the NAACP’s Executive Secretary, a title that was changed to Executive Director in 1964.)

In 1938 the NAACP was represented at the Soviet-controlled World Youth Congress.

In the 1940s the NAACP was affiliated with American Youth for a Free World, the U.S. affiliate of a Communist clearing house known as the World Federation of Democratic Youth.

Also in 1946, the NAACP cooperated with the Communist Party to establish the Communist-dominated Progressive Party, which went on to run former FDR Vice President Henry Wallace for President in the 1948 election. In 1946 as well, the NAACP cooperated with the Communist Party when the latter, in one of its most ambitious political projects of all time, established the Progressive Citizens of America — the basis for Henry Wallace’s presidential run in 1948.

In 1950,Communist leader Robert Thompson said: “The emergence of a powerful left, anti-imperialist, anti-fascist current among the Negro people is unmistakable and is clearly discernible in the NAACP…”

Lapdog Republicans Afraid to Act

For someone who has been covering the left’s war on America, their success has been possible by the spineless, gutless response by the Republican party. The only real pushback came with the outsider, Donald Trump. And their reaction to Trump and his supporters was madness unleashed — violent, vicious, unprecedented. A coup against America was activated and the GOP just flaps it tongue, or worse, aids and abets.

In the wake of high crimes, treasonous acts, election fraud, etc. etc., all we get are flapping tongues. Nothing’s been done.

Puppy Dog Republicans Afraid to Act

Another example of indisputably corrupt and unscrupulous Democrat behavior has erupted onto the national scene with the release of the years-long Durham probe into the alleged “Russia-Russi-Russia” influence on the 2016 election. Once again, virtually every phony charge against President Trump was proven to be false, virtually every claim he made about being spied on was proven true and the FBI has been revealed — again — to be a politically unethical organization far more concerned with tipping the electoral scales in favor of the Democrats than they are concerned with fighting crime. The Durham Report is just the latest in a long line of negative findings about prominent Democrats that never seems to result in any of them paying any tangible penalty for their wrongdoing.

The Democrats have made a habit of lying and gaming the system to their advantage. They always make sure they give the liberal mainstream media plenty of fodder with which to club Republicans over the head and they continually seek to arrange (if not outright rig) the relevant local ordinances, procedures, and laws to their unfair advantage in order to tilt elections in their favor.

BLM and Antifa riot, destroy private property and kill innocent bystanders, and the liberal mainstream media portray them as victim-heroes, while top Democrat leaders defend them, justify their actions and never prosecute them for any crimes. The police are characterized as racist vigilantes, more interested in violating the civil rights of minorities for sport than they are in protecting the public’s safety.  But let one Republican politician say something questionable and they’re pilloried mercilessly in the public square as if it were the crime of the century.

Hillary Clinton famously described one-half of the country she was vying to lead as a “basket of deplorables,” and there was not one iota of criticism from the liberal media, any Democrat politician, or any rank-and-file Democrat partisan. On the contrary, their unspoken reaction was, “Well, she’s right. They are.”

During the January 6th 2021 protest, one protester — Ashli Babbitt — was shot dead in cold blood by Capitol policeman Michael Byrd. Say what you want about the Capitol protest (and we’ll leave that discussion for another time), it certainly didn’t appear on the video that Babbitt posed an imminent deadly danger to people. She brandished no weapon and took no life-threatening actions against anyone. Yet she was killed for reasons that remain, at best, highly questionable. In a different circumstance, with the races reversed, this action would be trumpeted by the liberal media and the Democrats as yet more proof of the inherent racism of the Republican Party.

Hey Creativity, My Name’s AI: Is Artificial Intelligence Coming for Artistic Expression?

“A year or two back if you’d asked me whether graphic design was a safe job, I’d have said, yes, it was [a] pretty safe job — anything in the creative industries is a pretty safe job from racing against the machines. But now, actually, I would be somewhat worried if I was a graphic designer.”

That’s Toby Walsh, a professor of AI at the University of New South Wales. Like Walsh, many creatives are wondering how artificial intelligence and artistic expression will converge, given the explosion of AI art generators like Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, and Dall-E. Will intelligent technology mark the end of the creative industry, or will this become a whole new ground of exploration?

According to Rob Salkowitz, the time of the artist is running out.

Salkowitz, a senior contributor for Forbes, predicts that special effects, animation design, and even illustration and graphic design will soon be generated by AI. In his article on AI and art jobs, Salkowitz writes that these art tools are posing concerns for the industry and could easily become a “dagger to the throats of hundreds of thousands of commercial artists.” Similarly, artist Sebastian Errazuriz took to Instagram with this message, “Which artists will be the first to be replaced by artificial intelligence? Unfortunately, if you’re an illustrator — that’s you. … It takes a human about five hours to make a decent illustration to be published; it takes the computer five seconds.”

And AI pictures aren’t shabby, either. San Francisco-based illustrator Karla Ortiz points out that while there is work to be done in AI art, the results are adequate. Companies focused on quantity over quality, or with little room for a graphics budget, will turn to these inexpensive alternatives, cutting demand for entry-level designers. “Because the end result is ‘good enough,’” Ortiz says, “I think we could see a lot of loss of entry level and less visible jobs. This would affect not just illustrators, but photographers, graphic designers, models, or pretty much any job that requires visuals. That could all potentially be outsourced to AI.”

While AI is setting off alarms in the creative world, others are embracing the change. Jess Campitiello, a Digital Communications Specialist at Cornell Tech, argues that generative AI can help creatives by saving time during the conceptual stage. Artists can share AI thumbnails with clients instead of taking time to sketch ideas. Others see AI art tools as a way to artistically empower the average person. Still others, like Refik Anadol, view artificial intelligence as a way to experiment with new forms of art.

Anadol describes himself as a pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence. He believes AI and technology can be assets to art, not competitors. “Quantum Memories,” one of Anadol’s convergent pieces of art and tech, combined over 200 million nature-related images and processed them through quantum computing and algorithms. The result: a giant LED screen of constantly fluid abstractions, an interactive experience based on audience movement and positions in real-time. For Andol, artificial intelligence opens new possibilities for all types of artistic techniques.

In history, the emergence of any new technology leads to the destruction of some jobs and the creation of others. The same holds true for artificial intelligence. While some anticipate the elimination of whole portions of the creative workforce, others are more optimistic. Regardless of how bleak the future is for the industry, AI can never replace creativity.

Why? AI is not intrinsically creative. The art generators depend on human sources both for the artistic direction and source material. True creativity is not the sum of inputs and outputs but a reflection of God’s character.

In the first verses of Genesis, God acts as the supreme Creator. He thoughtfully delineates the order of his creation, taking delight in the work of his hands. In the Scriptures, God is compared to a potter and designer or architect (Isaiah 64:8; Hebrews 11:10). The plans for the tabernacle, with precise instruction on material types, colors, and design elements further reveals God’s attention to detail. The Creator gifted some of his artistic ability to humanity (Exodus 36:2). Only humans can creatively turn thoughts, experiences, and emotions into formats that others can appreciate and enjoy.

Toby Walsh gives pertinent insight. “Art is more than just making images that are realistic. It’s about asking questions, and addressing aspects of the human condition, whether that’s about falling in love and losing loved ones and human mortality and all of the troubling questions that art helps us to think about. Machines aren’t going to speak to us in the same way that artists speak to us because they don’t share our humanity.”

Even if the convergence of AI means the end of the art industry, creativity won’t die. Creativity is a special gift from the Creator, one that AI can never harness.

The Barbaric Slaughter of Innocence

Unmasking the Repressive Terror Unleashed Upon a Peaceful Nation.

In a heart-wrenching display of callousness and disregard for human life, the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) has once again stained the lands of Iran with the blood of the innocent. Today, we mourn the unjust execution of  three more innocent souls, Saeed Yaghoubi, Majid Khazemi, and Saleh Mirhashemi. These tragic victims met their undeserved fate at the hands of a regime that thrives on terror, propagates religious extremism, and perpetuates a reign of darkness upon a once peaceful nation.

Iranians, with their voices amplified from rooftops, have repeatedly warned the world of the horrors committed by the Islamic Republic. The regime’s brutal disregard for the sanctity of life has transformed this once-thriving nation into a terrifying graveyard. The echoes of anguish from grieving families reverberate through the streets, pleading for the world to hear their cries and end the relentless slaughter of their loved ones.

I resolutely affirm that this merciless execution of innocent Iranians serves as a meticulously orchestrated strategy, intended to crush any form of dissent and instill paralyzing fear within the hearts of those who dare to challenge the oppressive rule.

The Islamic regime’s grip on power is built upon the terror they instill in people. But fear and terror can be overcome by courage, and courage can lead to change. Iranians once again must rise above the darkness that engulfs their nation, to stand shoulder to shoulder in defiance of oppression. We must let them know that they are not alone in this struggle; that the world stands with them in solidarity.

Amidst the smoke and debris of shattered lives, the Islamic regime clings to power, exerting its iron grip over the people of Iran. Fair trials, a fundamental pillar of justice, have become an alien concept in this oppressive regime. Instead, innocent individuals are subjected to sham proceedings, deprived of their basic rights, and forced to face a predetermined fate that holds no regard for truth or justice.

The harrowing truth is that today’s executions are not isolated incidents. The Islamic Republic has transformed Iran into a macabre theatre of death, where  hundreds of souls have been prematurely ripped from their families this year alone. The IRI is the  ‘world’s leading executioner.’ This brutal regime’s appetite for bloodshed seems insatiable, and if left unchecked, the death toll will continue to rise, leaving behind a trail of shattered dreams and extinguished hopes.

The international community must recognize the Islamic Republic for what it truly is – a terrorist regime occupying a once-peaceful nation. The civilized world must offer its unwavering support to the people of Iran. They should stand in solidarity with their cries for justice, demand for freedom, and yearning for a future devoid of fear. The time for idle condemnation has long passed; action must be taken to end this reign of terror. Diplomatic efforts, economic sanctions, global pressure, and “carrot and stick” must be employed to hold Islamic leaders accountable for their crimes against humanity.

Silence and indifference will only embolden these tyrants, allowing them to continue their gruesome campaign of execution and suppression.

Again, the world cannot and must not turn a blind eye to the plight of Iranians. The blood spilled on its soil is a haunting reminder of the atrocities committed in the name of religion. Let us unite in the pursuit of justice, demanding an end to the merciless slaughter, and work towards a future where the innocent no longer tremble under the shadow of the Islamic regime.

It is crucial to recognize that the struggle faced by Iranians extends far beyond their borders. The Islamic Republic’s brutal tactics are a global threat. If left unchallenged, their ideology of fear and violence could spread like wildfire, engulfing nations in a dark abyss of oppression and suffering.

Iranians pledge to continue to fight for a future where no innocent person trembles at the hands of an unjust regime. Together, they will restore the light that has been dimmed by the darkness of tyranny, ensuring that Iranians can once again live in peace, harmony, and freedom.

The lives lost, the tears shed, and the cries of anguish must not be in vain. Together, we can make a difference and herald a new dawn for the brave people of Iran.
