America in Name Only

As much as I admire the great patriots who fought so hard to wrench our nation out of the hands of the usurpers, patriots such as General Michael Flynn, brilliant attorney Sidney Powell, My Pillow mega-mogul Mike Lindell, and more recently, famous filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza whose documentary 2,000 Mules presents indisputable evidence of vote fraud in the swing states that illegally tipped the scales in Beijing Biden’s favor, I can’t help feeling that many of us remain in denial about our current situation, including former President Trump. We shake our heads at the steady stream of violations of our constitutional protections, wondering how these flagrant abuses can take place in America.

For example, how is it possible that our own DOJ has locked up dozens of innocent men and women for attending a peaceful demonstration in our nation’s capitol, and left them to languish in squalid conditions in the D.C. Gulag for nearly two years, many still awaiting their trials? What happened to Habeas Corpus?

And in what world does our own FBI get to raid President Trump’s luxurious home, ransacking every room, pawing through Melania’s lingerie, taking Trump’s passports, spending nine hours combing every inch of Mar-a-lago, and quite possibly planting “evidence” and/or surveillance bugs along the way?

But the shocks keep coming—one of the latest being the witch-hunt targeting some forty “Trump associates” who’ve been subpoenaed and/or had their cell phones confiscated.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson viewed a subpoena and was stunned by its unlawfulness. In his words:

What it [the subpoena] demands is both unlawful and without precedent in American history. …Now keep in mind, that any claim you make as an American citizen about electors—any claim you make about American politics period—is protected explicitly under the First Amendment. That’s our core freedom…[Emphasis mine]

In fact, all of the above assaults on our rights are unprecedented and despicable, but not, as some may think, merely a matter of political revenge.

A SHATTERINGLY INCONVENIENT TRUTH

The painful truth is that there is nothing out of the ordinary about these abuses, including the January 6th political prisoners being detained without due process—without being charged, and without being granted their right to a speedy trial. Nor should we be surprised that Trump, his associates, and the MAGA millions Biden decried in his ghoulish tirade demonizing patriots, are under attack.

What we’re conveniently forgetting is that between November 3rd, 2020 and January 6th, 2021, we didn’t merely experience a stolen election, we went through a Color Revolution—a takeover of our nation by forces hostile to it—and not just the DemComms, but the ChiComms and other globalist enemies of liberty as well. So that now, America as we’ve know it exists only in our memories.  Oh, we see the vestiges of America all around us, and we can and should do everything in our power to resuscitate our vanquished Republic. But that shining city on the hill has been snuffed out. It’s just that we still see traces of its light, like the light of a distant star that is no more.

And while the shift from our Republic to the increasingly dystopian reality we’re currently living in seemed to happen almost overnight, the minions of Satan have been paving the way for this takeover of America for decades. Following the subversive advice of Antonio Gramsci and his follower Rudi Dutschke, they planned the Marxist “long march through the institutions” to alter and control American culture. And as iconic conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart famously remarked, politics is downstream from culture. We’re just experiencing the dramatic climax of these long-term efforts, as when a house suddenly crumbles after years of termites eating away at its supporting beams and wooden foundation.

So when I say there is nothing out of the ordinary about the January 6th patriots being brutally and unjustly treated, I mean that this is what Communists typically do to political prisoners. We the People are now under the thumbs of fascistic totalitarians who thrive on inflicting sadistic cruelty on others.

A PLETHORA OF TRAVESTIES

I’m at pains to imagine a more blatant travesty than the spectacle of Beijing Biden standing in Independence Hall, flanked by uniformed military and ominously bathed in blood-red background lighting while giving a clenched fist tirade damning at least half the country.

But we do have some contenders.

There’s the raid on President Trump’s exclusive Mar-a-lago villa for one.

And the tragedy of innocent Americans being held and tormented in unconstitutional detention in the D.C. Gitmo.

And how about the sudden spate of some forty subpoenas from Brandon’s nefarious DOJ targeting Trump associates? Or the 34-year prison sentence the DOJ’s dangling over the head of brilliant patriot Steve Bannon, President Trump’s chief strategist in 2017, co-founder of Breitbart, currently host of Bannon’s War Room? Or our courageous Frontline doctor Simone Gold who was recently released from prison for using her First Amendment rights?

What do these outrages have in common? These indignities all sing the same tune: patriots are the enemies of the State; the 2020 election results may not be questioned; none of the State’s official narratives may be questioned; Trump is radioactive; and your betters are in control now, peasants!

JANUARY 6TH PATRIOTS IN THE D.C. GULAG

Of all the Leftists’ relentless attacks on the MAGA millions since Obiden took office, the one that leaves me sickest at heart is the unconstitutional imprisonment and torture of the January 6th patriots who answered President Trump’s call to rally in D.C. on that fateful day. As painful as it is to read their stories, we must do so, and do all we can to help bring them out of their dungeons into the clear light of day. For how can we hold our heads up while they languish in the DC Gulag?

Here are just a few of these tragic tales:

  • Ryan SamselSince his arrest, Ryan has been held in a Washington DC prison. On March 21, 2021, he was awakened by correctional officers and his hands were zip-tied.  Then they walked him to an unoccupied cell where he was brutally beaten by the officers. Ryan Samsel lost an eye in the beating.  His face was smashed, his skull fractured.  The next day the guards beat him again.
  • Ronald Colton McAbee: a sheriff’s deputy who was at the Capitol on the 6th, tried to help Rosanne Boyland, who died that day. As WND reported on September 6thMCAbee was maced repeatedly “for removing his face mask to take his medication. The Tennessee man was then left in a cell covered in the spray for over eight hours of torture, unable to de-contaminate and rinse off his burning skin.” He’s been in the D.C. Gulag for over a year and his trial isn’t scheduled until September 2023—a year from now!
  • Jake Langa 26-year-old hero, saved the lives of two innocent demonstrators on January 6th by rescuing them from beneath a pile of people as they were being crushed and suffocated.

This brave young man has been locked in solitary confinement for over seventeen months! He describes January 6th as: “The day when free men and women stood unarmed against tyranny and were brutalized, beaten and even murdered on the steps of our own Capitol.”

  • Sean McHugh, patriot, business owner, father of four, who came with a megaphone. Immediately, the alleged FBI asset Ray Epps glommed onto Sean, urging him to tell people “the plan”—that they were going into the Capitol at 1pm whether Trump was done speaking or not. Here’s a quote from McHugh’s open letter:

“I’m a January 6th political prisoner being held in the DC-Gulag. My name is Sean McHugh. I’m being held in very inhumane conditions in the DOJ’s effort to try and make me plead guilty under duress.” And though McHugh left early, long before a breach in the police line occurred, he’s been “detained” in the D.C. hellhole for over a year now, while instigator Ray Epps strolls around free.

  • Thomas Robertson: An off-duty Virginia police officer who claims he was let inside the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021, by Capitol Police officers who told him merely to stay inside the ropes was sentenced to more than seven years in prison. Former Rocky Mount Police Sgt. Thomas Robertson, a U.S. Army veteran, also was sentenced to three years of supervised release after his prison term by U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper.

THE USURPING ÜBERMENSCHEN FLEXING THEIR MUSCLES

One of the most outlandish affronts to American patriots has got to be the shocking FBI raid on President Trump’s home, the exquisite Mar-a-lago.  Along with the FBI agents were three Department of Justice lawyers whose demeanor was described by an eyewitness as “arrogant.” Who do they think they are? Why didn’t they first subpoena whatever documents they were looking for? What was the fictional “probable cause” this warrant was based on? And how dare they rifle through our beloved First Lady Melania’s wardrobe! The point, gentlemen? I mean, barbarians!

Remember, those orchestrating this outrage are the same America-hating Leftists who orchestrated the Russia hoax—their Show Trial #1 under Robert Mueller and pals—followed by not one but two phony impeachments of President Trump, and now they’re conducting Show Trial #2, spiced up with a pre-dawn raid of his elegant mansion, as if he were a dangerous criminal about to destroy evidence of a heinous crime. We’re being treated to Marxist theater on steroids.

FBI Special Agents spent hours in Trump’s private office, rummaging through his private property that they had absolutely no right to lay their filthy hands on. His attorneys had all along been in full cooperation regarding possible classified material being stored at Mar-a-lago. They too were blindsided by this surreal show of force against Trump and his legacy.

But I forget, we’re not in America any more. In our Marxist/Fascist/New World Order vassal state, our masters can do with us as they like.

In fact, that’s the message.

They just showed their utter contempt for the most popular president in modern history, and by extension, the 80 million or so voters who elected him for a second term in 2020. If they can push Trump around with their surprise attack, invade his privacy with no probable cause, abscond with his passports and who knows what else, mess with his wife’s wardrobe, infest his home with hidden surveillance bugging, and possibly plant incriminating “evidence” to use against him, what can’t they do to the rest of us?

This was a display of raw power, calculated to publicly humiliate its target—a kind of symbolic rape—the violation of the rights, the dignity, and the privacy and personal property of the man Americans elected for the second time to be their Commander-in-Chief in the White House, and who rightly belongs there now, as our President.

Esteemed attorney and author John O’Neill, who clerked for Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist back in the day, has this to say regarding the raid at Mar-a-lago: “That they sent 30 some FBI officers from a special unit in Washington to raid a president’s home without warning in the wee hours of the morning is much more like the Stasi, or the Gestapo, or the KGB than it is like any American FBI. This is a black mark on the history of the United States. The raid was illegal, almost certainly, because the requirement for a warrant as opposed to a subpoena, was not met.”

Trump’s truly colossal blunder—the one I blame him for unreservedly—was his failure to take bold, constitutionally valid action after the Dems stole the election out from under him. Though the stakes couldn’t have been higher, he apparently failed to grasp the cost of his throwing in the towel. Now it is not just the January 6th innocent patriots who are paying the price for his abandoning the ship, he himself is feeling the burn. More to the point, We the People are paying the price, and it’s only going to get worse unless and until we can take our country back.

WANNA BET ON WHAT COMES NEXT?

If the Cabal/Deep State/NWO elites/Dems and Obiden play true to form, they will charge Trump with a crime and sentence him to prison along with the January 6th political prisoners.

After all, they only have to get him out of the way for a couple of years—say till 2025 or so. That way it will be easier for them to steal the 2024 election. DeSantis, if he runs, would win, but is unlikely to match the drawing power of Trump, whose courageous and spot-on truth-telling and inspirational love of our country and its people won him a permanent place in the hearts of millions of Americans. DeSantis, not likely to command a Trumpian landslide, would be easier to cheat out of a win.

Or, if the DemComms don’t want to risk the national outrage that would ensue if they sent Trump to prison, they may push forward with a third faux impeachment; if they got him convicted, they could claim he was ineligible to run. Never mind the pesky fact that you can only impeach someone who’s in office. Details, details…

One thing is certain: our elite masters fear the groundswell of patriotism and enthusiasm Trump inspires. They want us downtrodden, impoverished, miserable and resigned—like the typical masses under Communism—not feisty, energized and optimistic—like Americans.

THE BITTER TASTE OF TYRANNY

Every time we’ve seen Communist takeovers, mass genocide follows. That’s the playbook our “betters” are reading from, and those paying attention may already see the signs of the mass starvation and poverty to come—not to mention the tragic results of the apparently intentionally genocidal Covid injections.

But how could this happen in America, you ask?

It couldn’t.

While we’re still on the landmass of America, we’re no longer citizens of the Constitutional Republic created by our illustrious Founders. In fact, Benito Biden was actually correct when he called America-loving patriots enemies of the State—that is, patriots stand in opposition to the tyranny the Marxist/globalist oligarchy inflicted on our nation through the coup d’état of 2020.

Of course, in a Communist regime, the leaders can and do often imprison their perceived enemies on fake or trumped up charges, hold them indefinitely, and not infrequently, even murder them.

And in a Communist regime, if the Politburo (in our case, the Dems & pals) want to drastically reduce the population, they starve the peasants.

THE WRITING ON THE WALL

Have you read about the mysterious fires annihilating large food packing plants all over our country? Have you seen the container ships stalled in our harbors with no truckers permitted to load the goods and deliver them as usual? Have you read about Bill Gates buying up a huge percentage of American farmland at fire-sale prices since farmers are being ordered to kill all their cattle, hogs and chickens, and to stop growing their crops, and thus are forced to sell their suddenly unproductive farms?

The disaster awaiting us may still be invisible to many, as we can still shop at Publix or Safeway or Trader Joe’s, though some items are missing and prices are skyrocketing. Today, in one of our local SF Bay Area “upscale” grocery stores, a single Hass avocado goes for $4.99, as does a head of lettuce; a loaf of multigrain bread costs $7.99. Enough Pacific salmon to feed four people clocks in at $70, and price increases are the norm across the board.

Worse yet, Pacific Gas & Electric, California’s hated utility monopoly, raised the price of gas in our utility bills to nearly double—now over $2 per therm. And for those of us clinging to our gas-fueled cars, we’re lucky to find gas in California for under $7 a gallon. How does this bode for the future? How will the working and middle classes feed and support their families?

Decades ago there was already talk of future “third-worldization” in store for America. The global elites’ plan for their One World Government calls for the end of sovereign nations—especially any nation dedicated to liberty and enjoying prosperity. That’s partly what Agenda 21/ Agenda 2030— the U.N.’s version of Build Back Better and the WEF’s Great Reset—are all about. Actually, these are all names for the same “Programme” as the U.N. calls its dystopian plans.

America has all along been the jewel in the crown—the sought-after prize of the psychopathic elites. She’s now imprisoned along with the January 6th patriots rotting in that filthy D.C. jail. It isn’t hard to read the writing on the wall to figure out what happens if we do nothing. The wild card is what happens as we endeavor to take our country back, bit by bit. At this stage, every victory, no matter how small, matters. For we are not only fighting for America, we’re also taking our personal stands in what is surely an epic battle—perhaps the epic battle—between good and evil that is rapidly intensifying before our very eyes.

Parental Authority Is the Basis of Civilization

The war on parents is the war on family. The war on family is a war on the good and G-d. Evil.

Parental Authority Is the Basis of Civilization

By: Dennis Prager, September 27, 2022:

As most Americans now realize, America is experiencing a societal breakdown. This should be obvious to anyone, even those facilitating this breakdown as they openly acknowledge they seek to break down American society.

This is a society that teaches its youngest citizens a suicidal lie: that America was founded in 1619, that it was built on slavery and that even today it is systemically racist. At the same time, it does not teach the fundamental moral fact that every culture practiced slavery — Arab, Muslim, African, Asian, Native American — and usually more viciously (e.g., Arab slave masters routinely castrated black slaves so that they could not reproduce) than in America.

This is a society that robs its youngest of sexual innocence. Teachers — nearly all of them women, the sex that society has always regarded as the natural guardians of sexual innocence — now routinely sexualize young people with discussions of sexual behavior and by having drag queens perform for them.

This is a society that has taken as a given that there are more than two sexes; that has Jewish and Christian clergy sign emails with “preferred pronouns”; that will praise the Disney Corporation for dropping all references to “boys and girls” from its theme park announcements.

This is a society in which refusing to say that men give birth can lead to social banning and the loss of one’s job and income.

This is a society that encourages violent crime. It elects prosecutors who allow violent criminals to avoid having to pay bail. Its elites advocate defunding police. It keeps raising the dollar amount of stolen goods that constitutes a felony. In short, America is now a society in which the dominant message to would-be criminals is that crime pays.

This is a society in which fewer and fewer young people are marrying, fewer are having children, and more and are having children without being married, usually without a father in the life of the child.

This all began with the demise of moral authority — and moral, social and intellectual chaos is the inevitable result.

Prior to the 1960s, America had moral authority — God, country, parents, the Bible, teachers, police, and clergy.

Not one of them is a normative authority today.

Starting in the 1960s, each one was overthrown. The ’60s motto “Never trust anyone over 30” perfectly embodied this — given that every one of these was older than 30. Soon, teachers were called by their first names and frequently talked back to, even cursed; on college campuses, “America” was often spelled “Amerika,” and the flag is now declared a symbol of white supremacy; police were referred to as “pigs”; clergy were rendered irrelevant; the American motto, “In God we trust,” was ignored or mocked; and the Bible went from the dominant book in American life to the trash heap of history.

Most important, parental authority rapidly declined.

Moral stability — in other words, civilization — is dependent on parental authority. Once that breaks down, all the others mentioned here also break down.

If you look at the two tablets of the Ten Commandments, you will notice that each tablet has five commandments. The first five are laws between man and God, while the second five commandments govern behavior toward fellow human beings (do not murder, steal, etc.). The first four “rest” on the Fifth; and the second four “rest” on the Tenth.

Taking the second tablet first, the four commandments that precede the Tenth depend on obedience to the Tenth Commandment. When people murder, commit adultery, steal or offer false testimony, it is almost always because they “covet” what their neighbor has — his property, his animals, his spouse.

Likewise, the first four commandments regarding God as the One Moral Authority rest on people obeying the Fifth Commandment: “Honor your father and mother.”

Parental moral authority is the vehicle to divine moral authority. That is why the Fifth Commandment, to honor one’s parents, is the only human-to-human commandment on the first tablet. It is also the only one of the Ten Commandments that promises a reward — “that your days on the land will be lengthened” and “so that it goes well with you.” You will have a long-lived civilization and things will go well with you when parents have moral authority.

Beginning in the ’60s, parents stopped telling their children what to do and instead began asking them to do things. Parents became much more interested in being loved by their children than in being honored by their children. Children stopped fearing parents, and parents began fearing their children. Parents became much more interested in their children’s feelings than in their behavior.

Today, elementary schools and high schools work to diminish all parental authority. The most obvious example is hiding from parents that their 10-year-old says he or she is not their biological sex. And should a parent tell his or her 10-year-old, “This is not so, you were born a boy and you are a boy” or “You were born a girl and you are a girl,” those parents run the risk of having the child taken away from them, not to mention severe condemnation from doctors, psychotherapists and social workers.

One result of the breakdown of parental authority is that we probably have more child-parent alienation than at any time in American history. There are millions of parents whose adult child will not talk to them — many of them because of the way the parent voted (if the parent voted for former President Donald Trump, not if the parent voted for Hillary Clinton or President Joe Biden).

The bottom line is this: when parents don’t rule the home, chaos will rule society. And chaos always breeds tyranny. So, the choice is stark — either we have strong parents, or we will have a strong state.

Italy’s New PM Georgia Meloni Denounces Left-Wing Billionaire Activist George Soros

The more we see and know of this force for good just gets better and better. Nazi collaborator Soros is diabolical.

Italy’s New PM Georgia Meloni Denounces Left-Wing Billionaire Activist George Soros

By Peyton Holliday | CNS News | September 29, 2022 |

(CNS News) — Italy’s new prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, a conservative nationalist, has denounced the influence of left-wing billionaire activist George Soros, stating that his globalist endeavors “deprive nations and people of their identity,” and without identity “you’re a slave” and “you serve the interests of Soros.”

In a speech against the Migration Compact pushed by the United Nations, a plan to expand global migration, Meloni cited one leader, “’[I]t’s not in our national interest to sign our border protection policy over to the U.N.’” She continued, “The Migration Compact is exactly what is needed by those who have used illegal immigration in recent decades to complete the grand plan of financial speculation to deprive nations and people of their identity.”

“Because without roots you’re a slave, and when you’re a slave you serve the interests of Soros,” said Meloni.

In a March 24, 2019 tweet, Meloni said of Soros, “#Soros takes the field for the European elections by financing Emma #Bonino’s party with € 200,000. He chose the left as an ally and we sovereignists as enemies. A great pride for the Brothers of Italy: keep the money of the usurers, our strength is the Italian people.”

Emma Bonino is a radical left Italian politician.

In a Sept. 23, 2022 article, The Atlantic reported, “Since 2017, she [Meloni] has tweeted repeatedly that Italian identity is being deliberately erased by globalists such as Soros and European Union officials, who have conspired to unleash ‘uncontrolled mass immigration.’”

“I believe there is a design to use illegal immigration to push down workers’ rights and wages. Soros isn’t a philanthropist but an international speculator,” Meloni tweeted on May 23, 2019.

The New York Times on Sept. 15, 2022, reported that Meloni “has in the past characterized the euro as the ‘wrong currency’ and gushed with support for Viktor Orban of Hungary, Marine Le Pen of France and the illiberal democracies in Eastern Europe. She excoriated ‘Brussels bureaucrats’ and ‘emissaries’ of George Soros, a favorite boogeyman of the nationalist right and conspiracy theorists depicting a world run by Jewish internationalist financiers.”

The same article said Meloni “warned about an ‘empire’ of ‘invaders’ consisting of President Emmanuel Macron of France, Angela Merkel of Germany, Mr. Soros and Wall Street.”

PROTECT Act Will Aid Victims of Image-Based Sexual Abuse Against Big Porn

It only takes an instant for anyone to become a victim of image-based sexual abuse (IBSA).

It can happen through hidden camera videos, deepfake/edited images, leaked photos, filmed child sexual abuse, rape, sex trafficking, and prostitution.

These images can circulate fast and be posted to pornography websites, or shared without consent to other platforms, often before the victim even realizes it has happened.

The cruel irony is that there are currently no federal laws requiring websites which allow pornography on their platforms to verify the age and consent of every person depicted in those images. This is a massive gap in the law, and one that must be and can be immediately rectified.

Recognizing this problem after sitting down and working with survivors, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), last night introduced the Preventing Rampant Online Technological and Criminal Trafficking Act of 2022 (PROTECT Act) that would require websites allowing sexually explicit material (pornography) to obtain verified consent forms from individuals uploading content, or appearing in uploaded content, and to require websites to remove images uploaded without consent.

See this one-page summary of the PROTECT Act.

The PROTECT Act fills a gaping hole in existing law that allows pornography to be created, uploaded, and distributed online without the consent of persons depicted in the material. This has led to the victimization of countless women and men who have few or no remedies under present law.

Notably, the bill has robust requirements for websites to quickly remove content, and prevent re-upload of content, once they are notified the content was created or distributed without consent. Importantly, the bill adds criminal penalties for those who knowingly upload sexually explicit content without the consent of those depicted. This sends the message loud and clear that such activity is wrong, harmful, and will not be tolerated. This bill empowers IBSA victims to hold both the uploaders – and the platforms that profit from their abuse – accountable through civil remedies.

How You Can Help:

1. Sign this petition to Members of the US Congress urging their support and passage of the PROTECT Act:

Sign the Petition to urge Congress to prioritize victims of image-based sexual abuse (IBSA) and pass the PROTECT Act to require age and consent verification.

Image-based sexual abuse (IBSA) is the creating, threatening to share, sharing, or using of recordings (still images or videos) of sexually explicit or sexualized materials without the consent of the person depicted and/or the consent of the acts depicted in the recordings.

The PROTECT (Preventing Rampant Online Technological Exploitation and Criminal Trafficking) Act fills a gaping hole in existing law that allows pornography to be created, uploaded, and distributed online without the consent or age verification of the persons depicted. This has led to the victimization of countless women, men, and children who have few or no remedies under present law.

Sign this petition to show Congress you support for the PROTECT Act to support survivors of IBSA.

2. Survivors of IBSA are invited to sign this joint letter of support.  

3. Share information about this bill on social media!  

Survivors Call PROTECT Act Key to Ending Online Sexual Abuse

Two hundred survivors of image-based sexual abuse have signed a letter calling on the U.S. Congress to pass the PROTECT Act, and many are being vocal about why protections are needed.

“Technology is updating everyday but the laws haven’t changed. We need the PROTECT Act because it will protect the future of our children, women, men and ensure that the internet is a safer environment,” said Uldouz Wallace, Actress, Survivor.

“When I found out there have been two sexual videos of me posted on Pornhub and other pornography websites for the past 12 years, not once did I feel protected by the law. There are no laws in my state to protect survivors of image-based sexual abuse, but if this bill is put in place, it could help so many survivors like me,” said Katelynn Spencer, Survivor Leader.

”Online criminal enterprises have been allowed to flourish unregulated for over a decade. Technology has surpassed the reach of our current laws. The internet and technology have become weapons in digital violence. We desperately need a federal law to protect victims against online image-based sexual abuse including edited and deepfake content. The PROTECT Act would provide this protection. Similar laws have already been passed in other countries and the U.S. is falling behind,” said Victoria Galey, Survivor, Paralegal, Mother.

“Surviving systems of prostitution and exploitation cause immeasurable harm and trauma. It takes a lifetime to heal from the violence experienced in the sex trade and that is without having to beg websites to remove images that were taken during your abuse. The PROTECT Act will eliminate the additional trauma that many survivors have to endure as the imagery of their abuse is spread across the worldwide web. Their abuse wasn’t consensual nor was the sharing of the images of their abuse. Stand with Survivors and pass the PROTECT Act,” said Nicole M. Bell, Founder, Living in Freedom Together (LIFT), Survivor of Image-Based Sexual Abuse.

What Will the PROTECT Act do?

The PROTECT Act gives significant provisions for empowering a person depicted in sexually explicit videos/images to have those recordings removed and obtain damages for the harm their distribution caused. The PROTECT Act:

  • Requires covered platforms to obtain age verification for anyone who uploads content that is sufficient and independently verifiable
  • Requires covered platforms to obtain consent for each act depicted and distribution of the specific image from each individual appearing in the content
  • Requires covered platforms to obtain age verification from each individual appearing in the content
  • Allows eligible persons (including their authorized representative, parent/guardian, law enforcement) depicted without consent, or who have withdrawn consent, to have their image(s) removed, and block re-uploads, including any altered or edited versions
  •  Allows individuals harmed to bring a civil action in district court to seek damages
  • Penalizes covered platforms that fail to remove reported content, verify for age and consent, and block re-uploads

What is Image-Based Sexual Abuse?

Image-based sexual abuse (IBSA) is the creating, threatening to share, sharing, or using of recordings (still images or videos) of sexually explicit or sexualized materials without the consent of the person depicted and/or for purposes of exploitation.

Key Facts:

  • A 2017 U.S. survey conducted on Facebook, found that of 3,044 participants, 1 in 8 had been targets of the distribution, or threat of distribution, of sexually graphic images without their consent.
  • A survey of young adults (ages 18-25) who had experienced sextortion found that approximately 40% of participants reported that their sextortion occurred online.
  • An informal survey of survivors of IBSA found they often had their full name published alongside the explicit imagery (59%), social media/network information (49%), email (26%), phone number (20%), physical home address (16%), or work address (14%.).
  • A 2017 Cyber Civil Rights Initiative survey found that compared to people without IBSA victimization, victims had “significantly worse mental health outcomes and higher levels of physiological problems,” such as high levels of anxiety, PTSD, depression, feelings of shame and humiliation, as well as loss of trust and sexual agency.

U.S. Air Force Academy holds seminar promoting ‘transgender visibility and awareness in our Air Force’

Every second spent on this kind of thing is a second taken away from training cadets to fight and win wars. But get with it, man! The idea that the military should be devoted to winning wars is so 1945! This is 2022! We have other priorities now, and the Chinese, Russians, jihadis, North Koreans et al are laughing uproariously.

Air Force Academy Holds ‘Transgender Visibility’ Seminar

by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 26, 2022:

The United States Air Force Academy on Thursday held a seminar promoting “transgender visibility and awareness in our Air Force.”

The “discussion” session focused “on awareness for transgender communities in the military,” according to a copy of an invitation for the event obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Events of this nature are part of a wholesale push by the U.S. military to foster a more culturally inclusive environment. Critics say this type of training is part of a woke cultural agenda that is being mainstreamed by the Democratic Party’s far-left flank. The Army, for instance, mandates gender identity training and instructs its officers on the best time to offer subordinates gender-transition surgery….

The first 40 cadets to attend the seminar received a free lunch….

There ain’t no such thing, my friends.

Debunking Hurricane-Season Fallacies—3 Economic Fallacies to Watch Out For

You might be prepared for a hurricane, but are you prepared for a deluge of fallacies?


With hurricane season upon us, many are preparing for the worst. Windows are being boarded up, pantries are being stockpiled with extra food and water, and rescue crews are monitoring weather forecasts closely. Some have already experienced the worst, and are no doubt grateful they were ready when they got hit.

But while many are prepared for the hurricanes that sweep in, few seem prepared for the deluge of economic fallacies that inevitably accompanies these storms. These fallacies rain down from the highest levels of government and can be even more destructive than the hurricanes themselves. At best, the fallacies cause confusion and panic; at worst, shortages and life-threatening miscommunications.

So, in an effort to help us prepare for the storm before it’s too late, let’s explore three common fallacies that can come up during hurricane season.

The broken window fallacy is a classic hurricane-season misstep. “Hurricanes may do damage,” the reasoning goes, “but look on the bright side. Think of how many jobs will be created because of the destruction. Think about all the demand that will be stimulated. Things may look bleak, but this is actually good for the economy.”

Bastiat debunked this reasoning in his 1848 essay That Which Is Seen and that Which Is Not Seen, and countless economists since have echoed his remarks. In the essay, he tells the parable of a shopkeeper whose careless son breaks a window, and he asks the reader whether this is good for the economy. At first glance, it’s tempting to say yes. But as Bastiat shows in the story, this conclusion ignores the unseen effects of the broken window.

“If…you come to the conclusion,” he writes, “as is too often the case, that it is a good thing to break windows, that it causes money to circulate, and that the encouragement of industry in general will be the result of it, you will oblige me to call out, ‘Stop there! your theory is confined to that which is seen; it takes no account of that which is not seen.’”

What is not seen, briefly, is the lost opportunities, the things that could have been done with our resources had they not been needed to replace the broken window. Taking those into account, it becomes clear that the broken window is harmful to the economy. After all, there is now one less window in our stockpile of goods.

The same reasoning applies on a larger scale. There may be plenty of jobs and demand when a hurricane destroys a town, but saying this is “good” for the economy is simply wrong. If this logic were true, the more destruction we experience the better off we’d be! But economic reasoning—and plain common sense—tells us this can’t be right.

Every time a hurricane comes in there is a surge of worry about so-called price gouging—raising prices sharply in response to a supply or demand shock. Hurricane Ian has been no different.

“I want to add one more warning…to the oil and gas industry executives. Do not — let me repeat, do not — use this as an excuse to raise gasoline prices or gouge the American people,” President Biden said on Wednesday. “This small temporary storm impact on oil production provides no excuse, no excuse for price increases at the pump. None.”

“If the gas companies try to use this storm to raise prices at the pump,” he continued, “I will ask officials to look into whether price gouging is going on.” “America is watching,” he added. “The industry should do the right thing.”

According to Biden, the “right thing” for the oil and gas industry is to keep prices right where they are. But if access to gasoline for those who need it most is the goal, keeping the price fixed during a supply disruption will only make matters worse

“[Anti-price-gouging] laws keep prices low during natural disasters but lead to bare shelves, closed stores, and empty gas stations,” explains economics professor Lili Carneglia. “This happens because the low mandated prices push consumers to purchase more water, gas, flashlights, and so on. Yet at the same time, sellers aren’t financially motivated to expend any additional effort to supply more of these necessities. Why would they spend their time or money bringing in additional goods during a disaster only to sell them for the same price they’d get under normal circumstances? This imbalance between the interest of buyers and sellers causes shortages, leaving many without anything at all.”

Laws against price gouging—and the disdainful attitude toward “price-gougers” that pervades our culture—are born from the fallacy that keeping prices low makes goods more accessible for those who need them. In many cases, this simply isn’t true. It’s not a question of having a high price or a low price. It’s a question of having a high price or an empty shelf.

And if someone’s truly in need, you can bet they’ll prefer the high price over the empty shelf any day of the week.

Another policy that sometimes gets discussed in the wake of hurricanes is the Jones Act. Officially called the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, the Jones Act makes it illegal to transport goods by ship between US ports unless the ship is US-built, US-flagged, is owned by Americans, and is at least three-quarters crewed by Americans.

The Jones Act has recently become a hot topic again because of the situation in Puerto Rico. The island is suffering from the damage wrought by Hurricane Fiona and is in desperate need of supplies. As it happens, a ship carrying 300,000 barrels of desperately-needed diesel fuel from Texas was right next to the island on Monday. However, the ship is not Jones Act compliant, so it had to wait until a “temporary and targeted” waiver to the Act was granted Wednesday before it could unload the fuel.

This isn’t the first time the Jones Act has been waived to facilitate hurricane-relief efforts. It was also temporarily waived following Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria. Coincidentally, the Hurricane Maria waiver also concerned Puerto Rico, also happened in late September (2017), and also took two days before it came through.

So, why does this harmful Act exist in the first place? Essentially, the goal is to create a “strong” domestic shipping industry to ensure the US isn’t too dependent on other countries for its shipping (there’s also a mercantilist argument, but we’ll leave that aside for this discussion). If we require these ships to be all-American, the reasoning goes, US shipping will thrive and can be counted on to facilitate commerce and lend a hand should it be needed for national defense. The fear is that American ports, absent these restrictions, would come to be dominated by foreign ships built in foreign shipyards, and should there be a war, those ships would be called back to their home ports, leaving America with few vessels and little shipyard infrastructure to use for commercial purposes (or to commandeer for war).

The idea that it’s good for a nation to be “self-sufficient” in certain key industries like shipping is a typical protectionist talking point, but it has serious problems. Though it might seem like being “self-sufficient” makes us strong and being “dependent” on other nations makes us weak, the reality is exactly the opposite.

Imagine trying to make your home self-sufficient, or even your city or state. You’d have to grow all your own food, mine your own metal, and make everything yourself. Even if trade were only restricted in a few industries, it wouldn’t be long before you became an economic lightweight compared to what you could have been. Your technology will fall behind and you’ll struggle to accumulate capital. In short, your economy will be severely weakened.

This is the inevitable result of trade restrictions. To the extent that you cut yourself off from the world, you cripple yourself. And this is just as true on a national scale as it is on a more local scale.

“What protection teaches us,” said economist Henry George (1839-1897), “is to do to ourselves in time of peace what enemies seek to do to us in time of war.”

All that to say, hampered disaster relief is but one of the many ways “self-sufficiency” makes us worse off.

As with hurricanes, the key to mitigating the damage of economic fallacies is being prepared for them. If we don’t know even basic economics, we are setting ourselves up to be duped, and there are real consequences when that happens.

So just as we take time to board our windows and stock our pantries, let’s also take time to learn economics and think through some of the more common economic fallacies.

Given the stakes, it’s just the prudent thing to do.

The Stasi Actions Of The Politicized DOJ

“East Germany was so total in its totalitarianism that everything was banned which wasn’t compulsory.” —  P. J. O’Rourke

“It’s an historical fact that the Stasi did horrible things and that they monitored a lot of people in East Germany, but I find it very interesting to think about the importance of the Western secret services back then and still working today.” —  Christian Schwochow, German Film Director

“While the Antifascist Action and all opposing groups were banned after Hitler became head of state, the antifa communist ideology never went away. From the ashes of WWII, it was absorbed and institutionalized in the official state ideology of what would become the German Democratic Republic, also known as East Germany. From 1949 to 1990, East Germany existed as a communist state carved out of the Weimar Republic by the Soviet Union, one of WWII’s victorious Allied leaders. For over forty years, the extremely repressive conditions in East Germany exemplified what “antifa” state-building actually looks like.” — Andy Ngo, Journalist, Author

“I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return.” — Former Idaho Senator, Frank Church


Who were the Stasi?  One of the most hated and feared institutions of the East

German communist government. They were the internal security and police apparatus in the Soviet zone of occupation in East Germany after World War II.  Their job was to spy on the people.  They were similar to the KGB in that their spying (gathering intelligence) kept the government informed enough to squash any dissent.

Like a giant octopus, the Stasi’s tentacles probed every aspect of life; all major industrial plants, apartment buildings, schools, universities, hospitals and theologians had informers.   Doctors, lawyers, journalists, writers, actors, and sports figures were co-opted by Stasi officers, as were waiters and hotel personnel.

The Stasi was one of the most successful intelligence services in history: they kept almost unimaginably detailed files and records on large quantities of the population, and created an atmosphere of fear and unease that they then proceeded to exploit.

Lives were lost trying to escape communist/fascist control.

Just as Italy’s Benito Mussolini established and controlled his power between 1922 to 1930, we have seen exactly the same tactics in America.  He used violence and intimidation of opposing parties, media was controlled along with censorship, education in schools and universities was closely monitored, and trade unions were controlled through the state.

The old “turn in your neighbor” that we saw in Nazi Germany, Italy, Poland, and other countries run by totalitarian oligarchs was revived in Biden’s recent fascist speech.

Perhaps it isn’t as obvious to the majority of Americans, but Stasi tactics are alive and well in America more so under Biden’s Department of Justice, with Merrick Garland as the Attorney General.  And every intelligence department is “woke” enough to be in on the totalitarian takeover of America.

FBI Raids

We’ve seen enough examples of the attacks on opposition leadership via the overzealous raids by the Stasi FBI.  Roger Stone, Peter Navarro, Paul Manafort, Mike Lindell and Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, to name just a few, were subjected to hordes of armed agents descending upon their homes, some in the middle of the night.

Steve Bannon told Charlie Kirk that the FBI “rolled in on” 35 senior members of MAGA Republican supporters of Donald Trump.”  Saying the alleged searches were unnecessary because their targets have lawyers, he called the FBI the “jackbooted Gestapo,” a reference to the secret police of Nazi Germany.

The FBI’s history belies their motto of fidelity, bravery and integrity.  The same can now be said of the rest of the intelligence network.

Think about what just happened to Mark Houck, father of seven, a noted Catholic, and pro-life activist. After an incident between Houck, his son, and a belligerent pro-abortionist escort, the DOJ found good reason for 30 armed agents to show up at his house and drag him away in hand-cuffs in front of his wife and children in the middle of the night.

When both the city police and the district attorney declined to file charges against Houck for pushing the pro-abortionist away from his son, the escort filed a private criminal complaint in Philadelphia municipal court. The case was dismissed in July when the man repeatedly didn’t show up in court.

Twenty-two members of Congress demanded answers from Attorney General Merrick Garland over the Stasi actions of the politicized FBI.  Where were the other 240 Republicans in the House and Senate?  Silent as usual.

FBI Attack on Private Property

Karl Marx said, “The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.”  The FBI is following Marxist doctrine.

Zero Hedge reported on September 26th, that the FBI Misled Judge, Then Seized $86 Million In Cash From Beverly Hills Safe-Deposit Boxes.

The FBI ‘drilled and pried’ their way into 1,400 safe-deposit boxes at a private vault company in Beverly Hills after misleading a judge about their plan to permanently confiscate everything inside every box containing at least $5,000 in cash or goods, a senior FBI agent recently testified.

This was private property!

Sean Davis tweeted, “The FBI is trash. It is both a domestic terrorist organization and a criminal cartel, and it should no longer be allowed to exist in what used to be a free country with laws.”  He is right!

Destruction of the fourth amendment of the Bill of Rights!

Amendment IV states: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The FBI menace is escalating.

FBI Whistleblowers

Miranda Devine’s September 28, 2022 article in the New York Post tells of 30 ex-FBI agents who are standing up for the latest whistleblower, Stephen Friend.

Those 30 former agents include a retired deputy assistant director, head of counterterrorism and five SWAT team members, who have spoken out publicly in support of suspended FBI whistleblower Stephen Friend.  Friend alleged that the FBI has been manipulating case-file management in order to falsely inflate the threat of domestic terrorism, and using unconstitutional excessive force against political dissenters.

Many former agents hailed Friend, a SWAT team member in Florida, as a “hero” after he was punished for refusing to participate in what he regarded as unnecessarily heavy-handed SWAT raids over Jan. 6 misdemeanors.

The FBI is no longer devoid of political partisanship.  As such, whistleblowers have come forward against the use of swat teams “to arrest non-violent senior citizens and others with political opinions not currently tolerated by this administration, compounded by the idea that many of these cases involve misdemeanor criminal charges.”

Economic Fascism

Far too many physicians, nurses, airline pilots, and federal and state employees have been forced to take the COVID inoculations, or lose their jobs.  The unconstitutional mandates were totalitarian in nature and have ruined faith in the medical industry who along with the Biden administration, the NIH, CDC, FDA, AMA, medical journals and group practices, promoted masks, social distancing, lockdowns and clot shots.  All were unconstitutional and all were highly damaging to society and especially to the middle class.  This was all planned and exposed by Dr. Richard Day in 1969.  Dr. Lawrence Dunegan recorded what he remembered of the lecture given by Day, and it was the New World Order plan for society, most of which was already completed.

Corporate entities jumped on the bandwagon for all of it, but now the woke propaganda fear porn spread by the alphabet agencies has taken a new turn.  What is promoted in the “Codes of Conduct or Ethics” in America’s job openings is alarming and invasive.

A friend of mine received this link from “All Time Favorites”  because her former business used to be listed as one of their vendors, and they sent this out to their entire mail list.  She sent it to me with the statement, “They will not hire anyone who has anything to do with anyone Trump even knows, it seems, or anyone who disagrees with vaccines or Ukraine, etc.

It is crazy. I have never seen anything like this.”

Here is what was listed under their Code of Conduct:

  • Good moral character, ethics, honesty, and high integrity are very important to All Time Favorites.
  • You agree to abide by a code of conduct outlined here while working with All Time Favorites.
  • You agree to not do business with nor show admiration or positive support for those who do not fit this code of conduct.
  • This is not about politics.
  • Examples of those who you agree NOT to do events for nor associate with include:
  • Q-anon, Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and any business Donald J. Trump owns/runs, his family owns/runs, or his business partners. (This would include Eric Trump’s fundraising for St. Jude’s.)
  • You also agree not to mass distribute nor promote false information.
    For example (but not limited to): False information about Covid-19 and related vaccines; that the election was stolen from Donald Trump in 2020, or similar.
  • Our experience shows us that people who follow and support those who tell lies, bully, disrespect and degrade others, usually show us that they do not have the respect, character, morals and integrity we require to serve our clients.
  • You agree not to threaten, bully, disrespect ethnic groups or cheat others in your business transactions.
  • Currently, due to the Ukraine invasion by Russia, you are not supporting or showing any support of Putin and those under his direction.
  • ATF DOES monitor social media posts and other communication to assure our code of conduct is adhered to.

Patriotic Americans are not just the enemies of the Biden state, but enemies of every single vestige of society as well.  The first amendment, which gives all Americans the liberty and freedom to freely speak about what they believe, has been squelched by the very enemies of the nation, those controlled by the Marxist/Fascist propaganda.

In Thomas J. DiLorenzo’s 1994 article, Economic Fascism, he clearly explains what we’re facing in 2022.

He states that when people hear the word “fascism, they naturally think of ugly racism and the anti-Semitism practiced by the regimes of Mussolini and Hitler,” but the reality is there was also an economic policy component of fascism known as “corporatism,” practiced by the two totalitarians.  DiLorenzo tells us that corporatism was adopted in Italy and Germany in the 1930s and was held up as a “model” by intellectuals and policy makers in America and Europe.  A version of this fascist corporatism was adopted in the USA in the 1930s and is still around.  Rather than “fascism,” it is called “planned capitalism.”  “The word fascism may no longer be politically acceptable, but its synonym, ‘industrial policy’ is still as popular as ever.”

Economist Lawrence Dennis was one of the most outspoken American fascists and in his 1936 book, The Coming American Fascism, he declared that defenders of 18th-century Americanism were sure to become the laughing stock of their own countrymen.  He believed that the adoption of economic fascism would actually intensify “national spirit” and put it behind “the enterprises of public welfare and social control.”  What he bemoaned was the fact that the stumbling block to economic fascism was “liberal norms of law or constitution guarantees of private rights.”  (Emphasis mine.)

Many of those wonderful God-given rights are today being trampled underfoot not only by the totalitarian despots in charge of the once greatest country on earth but by their corporate acolytes.  The above “Code of Conduct” is a prime example.

In the article, Off-Duty Conduct and Employee Rights, the author states, “Federal antidiscrimination laws that apply to private employment do not protect political beliefs or affiliations.”  So, your private life is not private from your employer.

There are however, questions an employer is not allowed to ask.  Unfortunately, one of the questions considered unlawful is, “Are you a United States citizen?”  Huh?!

I didn’t see any of the protestors who were involved in Antifa or BLM riots losing their employment.  In fact, Team Biden and his apparatchiks encouraged street demonstrations that might spiral out of control.  Nearly all of them did.

Whistleblower Edward Snowden

In Daniel Ellsberg’s nine-year-old Guardian article, Edward Snowden: saving us from the United Stasi of America, he calls, “Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing a chance to roll back what is tantamount to an ‘executive coup’ against the US Constitution.”

He also believed that we had not yet become a police state although another tragedy like that of 9/11 would push us over the brink.  I believe we have reached that point inasmuch as the entire C-19 project against Americans, including the mandated inoculations, have thrown us into that authoritarian camp.

The dangerous abyss that Idaho Senator Frank Church warned of years ago is now upon us.  The dangerous prospect of which he warned was that America’s intelligence gathering capability – which is today beyond any comparison with what existed in his pre-digital era – “at any time could be turned around on the American people and no American would have any privacy left.”

Ellsberg states, “That has now happened. That is what Snowden has exposed, with official, secret documents. The NSA, FBI and CIA have, with the new digital technology, surveillance powers over our own citizens that the Stasi – the secret police in the former “democratic republic” of East Germany – could scarcely have dreamed of. Snowden reveals that the so-called intelligence community has become the United Stasi of America.

“Snowden did what he did because he recognized the NSA’s surveillance programs for what they are: dangerous, unconstitutional activity. This wholesale invasion of Americans’ and foreign citizens’ privacy does not contribute to our security; it puts in danger the very liberties we’re trying to protect.”

Conclusion

Our private lives, aside from our employment, are only one faction of the encroaching takeover of America by those who have long promoted the New World Order, now called the Great Reset, which is nothing more than United Nations Agenda 21/30.

In the last few years, Americans have seen the despotic and repressive destruction of our health care system.  Dr. Richard Day’s lecture of 1969 entitled, The New Order of Barbarians, told us the plan.  That dark agenda is upon us.

Next up, we’ll study the Stasi control of our health care which was once ranked among the world’s healthiest populations in 1984.  But in 2021, a study by the Commonwealth Fund ranked America’s health care system dead last among industrialized nations, with the highest infant mortality and lowest life expectancy.  In the 38 years between 1984 and 2022, Anthony Fauci has been the catalyst of desolation.

The Connection Between Fear and Deception

All true believers should understand the words spoken by God, Who said many times in His word, “Fear not”! There is a reason why He told us all to reject fear, but few actually look deeply enough into the matter to fully understand why that is a not a ‘suggestion’, but a ‘command’ of God to His people.

I believe very few people understand just what fear is, how it works and the results it produces. If God says to “do this” and “do NOT do that”, He is NOT saying it just to hear Himself speak; HE knows exactly what fear is and how damaging and destructive it is and He wants us to live free of fear.

We are told NOT to fear.

We are also admonished by the Apostle Paul when He said, “Let no man deceive you by ANY means” (2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV). Again, I believe few people truly understand deception, how it works and what it leads to. If allowed, it can reach a level in a person’s mind from which there is no return, a state of delusion that is totally destructive.

Is there then a connection between fear and deception? Let’s look into the matter and seek God’s wisdom in it.

Fear, What It Is, Where It Comes From and How It Works

First, What IS Fear?

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, fear is a noun, meaning, a)“an unpleasant, often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger”; and b) a state (of being) marked by this emotion

Fear is also a verb, meaning, “to be afraid of; to expect with alarm”. It is important to understand both the noun and verb meanings to understand what fear does.

Where Does Fear come From?

“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 John 4:8 KJV). From this passage, we understand the nature of God, and we know that “God is Love”. There is no fear in love (God); but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18 KJV). Since God (love) exists without fear and actually casts out all fear, we can surmise that fear comes from a source other than  God.

How Fear Works

When fear enters a person’s mind, which is the center of man’s awareness and the response to all incoming sensory information, a level of discomfort is experienced that MUST produce either a response based on one’s beliefs, or a reaction, like ‘flight or fight’. In either case. man must find a way to deal with the ‘fearful’ info that causes discomfort.

Fear is a highly developed spiritual weapon that Satan, the exact opposite of God, uses to torment his enemies. In using fear, Satan tries to force a reaction that will cause a wrong decision to be made, giving Satan what he wants: the potential to control the person he aims that weapon against.

Let’s look at the difference between two words, response and reaction, that many seem to use as though they are the same, mean the same and can always be used as though they ARE the same., when in reality, they are very different.

First, the word response which has as synonyms, answer, response, reply, retort. Answer implies the satisfying of a question, demand, call or need. Response may imply a quick or spontaneous ‘reaction’ to a person or thing that serves as a stimulus (fear). Reply often suggests a thorough response to all issues, points or questions raised. Retort implies a reaction to an implicit or explicit charge, criticism or attack which contains a countercharge or counterattack.

While all could be used when confronted with, or attacked by, fear, we have as THE example for our action in such situations, Jesus, who was often attacked and/or confronted by fear in His time on this earth. In those instances, what did Jesus do? He spoke the words that His Father had already spoken and allowed those words to provide the perfect answer, response or retort against His attackers. He was able to do this, successfully, in every situation because He was thoroughly attuned to God’s word. To follow the example of Jesus to counter fear, we must also KNOW what God’s word says and be prepared to use it just as Jesus did.

He consistently taught His disciples to understand why they were being attacked by our adversary and how to counter the fear he was using against them. As damaging as fear itself can be, leaving mental scars that may linger for many days, He was aware of an even more damaging aspect of fear: that fear leads people to seek relief from it, and many will choose the wrong way to get that relief. If not dealt with properly, the fear will lead to making decisions which may allow the enemy to increase his attacks, a primary means of trying to deceive the hearer.

Where Does Fear Lead?

Aside from being a primary weapon used to frighten and frustrate believers and unbelievers alike, fear has a ‘destination’. Fear always leads to deception, a state  in which the deceived is caused to accept as true, something that is false or invalid.

Once established in the mind of the deceived, the falsehood becomes a part of that person’s belief system and he or she will defend it vigorously even though it is false. That dogged adherence to a lie will further erode the mental capacity to determine what is true and what is a lie in any situation. This demonic state then leads to delusion.

Paul spoke of this progression from fear to deception to delusion in his letter to the Thessalonian believers: “…because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause, God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

Where Does Delusion Lead?

The verses above clearly state that because people are captured by delusion, they are headed toward damnation, the eternal kind from which there is little hope of recovery. The Oxford Living Dictionary defines delusion as: An idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument.” So it becomes clear that a person suffering from delusion is one who might never accept the truth because the lie produced by deception has become ingrained in the person’s mind ‘as truth’ that cannot, or should not be refuted.

Thus, people who have allowed fear to cause them to make seriously bad decisions are similar to the people of Germany who were led into a disastrous war in which many millions of people died. After World War II, during the Nuremberg trials, many failed to comprehend how so many Germans were convinced of the ‘rightness’ of Hitler’s Third Reich and were so easily led  to support him. During the trial, Hitler’s right hand, Hermann Goring, explained how they accomplished that feat:

It’s easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and… they will follow their leader. This works in every nation.”

“Just make the people afraid and they will do whatever you want”.

Unfortunately, that fear led to the deception that Hitler, the demonically influenced German leader, was doing something good for the German nation and that deception/delusion led to the near-destruction of Germany.

How to Counter-Attack Fear

Remember that fear does NOT come from God. We are told in 1 John 4:18, There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

So when fear attacks, what should the believer do? First, remember where the fear comes from and recognize it as a spiritual attack from Satan. If you allow fear to remain in your presence instead of immediately counterattacking it, Satan will almost immediately present the deception he wants you to accept. The best example of a perfect counter-attack against fear is that of Jesus, Who when approached by Satan, using his weapons to deceive Jesus into worshipping him, used the words that God had already spoken to Him. Satan, knowing he was defeated by the word, then  left Jesus alone.

We also can use God’s words against Satan, against fear and make him flee. Read James 4:6-7 KJV and you will see God’s weapon He has given us to defeat fear and Satan:

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. True humility, the act of confessing the Lordship of Jesus over our lives and submitting wholly to Him for our entire subsistence allows the grace of God to flood our lives and also gives us the courage to face Satan and use God’s spiritual weapon of His Word to defeat the enemy of our souls.

If we are faithful to follow this process, w can not only live free of fear, but we can avoid all deception, which is pleasing to God.

Blessings! And Maranatha!

The Democrat Fascination with Violence

Somebody recently put together a montage of prominent Democrats accusing 80 million Trump supporters of being violent and going on to justify violence against them.  Republicans want to “overthrow the U.S. government,” “enact their political will through violence,” and ‘turn violent when they don’t get their way.’  These “Nazis” and “fascists” – or is it “semi-fascists”? – are “a danger to our way of life.”  “This means war,” these Democrats say.  “Civil war has already begun.” “We have to kill and confront that movement.”  This is a “call to arms”, echoing the call to arms by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot in May.  Rise up and “fight to victory,” she said, no surrender.

The idea that Republicans are violent is just liberal projection – Democrats are accusing Republicans of what Democrats do – and have done historically, as we shall see in a moment – and of what is in Democrat hearts.  Two recent cases in point:  A North Dakota man struck and killed a teenager with his vehicle, because the man believed the teen was a member of a “Republican extremist group.”  This politically motivated murder took place two weeks after Democrat Joe Biden delivered his infamous speech at Independence Hall calling his political opposition enemies of the state and a clear and present danger.  In the other case, a Michigan man admitted to shooting a tiny 84-year-old woman in the back who was out campaigning against a proposal that would legalize abortion up to birth in the state.  The shooting was an accident, he says, but his wife is a left-wing abortion activist who threatens conservatives on social media, which begs the question: why did the man pull a gun at all?  And let’s not forget the 29 acts of arson and vandalism against pregnancy centers and churches since Roe v. Wade was overturned, none of which have been punished or even investigated by the Democrat-controlled Justice Department.

But there’s more.  Also in Michigan, another man threatened to shoot a Republican worker in front of a local GOP headquarters on election day, and also threatened to shoot up the whole place.  And who could forget the deranged leftists who shot up Republican congressmen on a baseball field in 2017 and a security guard at the Family Research Council in 2013.

But Democrats have always been this way.  The KKK has been called the armed wing of the Democrat Party.  The same label has more recently been applied to Antifa, whose specialty is training their members to gouge people’s eyes out.  Gee, leftists turn violent when they don’t get their way.  What is more, the anarcho-communists of Antifa and the trained Marxists of Black Lives Matter have declared war on the system, attacked federal buildings to overthrow the U.S. government, and are certainly a danger to our way of life – throwing the Democrats’ words right back at them – yet Democrat politicians and federal authorities – also Democrats – refuse to bring them to justice.   Joe Biden and other Democrats dismiss Antifa as ‘just an idea’.  Let me ask you a question:  what other ‘idea’ has burned down entire cities in recent memory?

What you must understand is that none of this is an accident.  Left-wing communist and socialist parties around the world have had armed wings operating on their behalf – in the Philippines, in China and Colombia and, among other places, Italy, Germany, and India.  Italy is of special note because the armed wing of the Left is known as the ‘Red Guards’.  Red Guard groups have been active in Austin and other American cities.

So, if you want to know where political violence is likely to come from in America in the future, look no further than the Democrat Party, its prominent members who threaten violence, and its armed supporters and paramilitary groups who practice it.  As I’ve mentioned in previous commentaries, the FBI and Justice Department have to cook up phony domestic terrorism cases, call ordinary parents ‘domestic terrorists’, and spin phony narratives about how January 6th somehow represents a broad crisis of right-wing extremism in the country.  But there’s nothing phony about the riots of 2020, the 2,000 police officers who were injured in that spasm of left-wing violence, or the dozens of acts of violence against pro-lifers and pregnancy centers more recently.  It’s the Left and its supporters in the Democrat Party and the federal government – not the Right – that we have to worry about.  I don’t know about you, but I’m nervous about what Democrats will do the next time they don’t get their way.

Trump Sues CNN

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN, claiming the outlet defamed him and did so out of fear he will run for president again in 2024.

The suit, which was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, argues CNN has tried to use its influence to smear Trump politically and prevent him from launching a bid for re-election.

The suit alleges Trump has been a “long-time critic” of CNN, “not because CNN does a bad job of reporting the news, but because CNN seeks to create the news.”

“CNN’s campaign of dissuasion in the form of libel and slander against the Plaintiff has only escalated in recent months as CNN fears the Plaintiff will run for president in 2024,” the suit reads. “As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the Left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of ‘racist,’ ‘Russian lackey,’ ‘insurrectionist,’ and ultimately ‘Hitler.’”

Trump is seeking $475 million in punitive damages, according to the suit.

Trump notified the outlet in July of his intention to sue for “repeated defamatory statements.” Trump also warned he would sue other outlets he alleges have “defamed and defrauded the public” about the 2020 presidential election results.

“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump said in July. “I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our country.”

The Democrats Have Lost Their Minds on Criminal Justice Reform

The Sunday talk shows say crime is becoming a campaign issue in the upcoming elections.  It’s easy to see why.  People don’t feel safe wherever Democrats are in control.  If crime isn’t an issue for you yet, let me ask you some questions:

Why would anyone visit New York City?  A tourist from Maryland was slashed in the face and robbed in Times Square.  That’s what happens when you get rid of cash bail laws, as I’ve mentioned in previous commentaries.  There are countless stories about criminals being let go without having to post bail in New York, only to reoffend, sometimes within hours of being released.  New York also recently made it easier to get out on parole and stay out even if there are parole violations.  Crime is way up, especially in wealthier neighborhoods – by as much as 60 to 80 percent this year.  Bail reform has emboldened the criminals and city residents and tourists alike are paying the price.

Speaking of parole, the parole board in Democrat-controlled Wisconsin has run amok, freeing hundreds of convicted killers early.

But here’s my next question:  Why would anyone buy a house in Illinois?  Under a new state law, your front lawn will soon in effect become public property and the homeless can camp there any time they feel like it.  The police will not arrest them for trespass or even ask them to move.  The police will only write a ticket and leave.  My sisters live in Illinois.  They both own houses.  They’re both leaving the state.  The same new law ends cash bail after the 1st of the year for aggravated assault, second-degree murder, and other crimes.  Hundreds of defendants awaiting trial will be released.  The definition of insanity would be expecting any different result than what’s happening in New York City, but that’s the Democrats for you.

Next question: Why would anyone own a shop in California?  Theft under $950 has been reclassified from a felony to a misdemeanor.  Critics say theft and shoplifting has increased all over the state as a result.  They also say the police won’t even show up any more for shoplifting under $950 or, if they do, the shoplifters simply fail to appear in court without any consequences.  Not only that, the shoplifters can sue the store if the staff tries to stop a shoplifting-in-progress.

Why would anyone in Pennsylvania vote for John Fetterman – the guy who had a stroke and is still running for Senate.  He was caught on video saying he wants to let one-third of the criminals in prison out on the streets because, he says, everyone will be safer or better off that way.  That’s delusional.  But he put his money where his mouth is when he was on the state’s Board of Pardons where he voted to put lots of murderers back out on the streets.  Then, as Lieutenant Governor, he appointed a woman as secretary of the board who wants to “disarm the police”.  Delusions have consequences.

I also want to know when the Democrats will run out of crazy ideas for criminal justice reform.  Defund the police – remember that one?  Several cities found it completely unworkable and moved to re-fund the police as I’ve noted in previous commentaries.  In fact, the track record of this crazy idea is so bad, Democrats in Virginia and elsewhere are trying to run away from their previous support for it.  Too bad they’re all caught on video saying what they said.  Now the Democrats want to give free crack pipes to drug addicts.  The idea didn’t die when it was found out the Biden administration was supporting it and denied it.  But why do you think the Democrats’ next crazy idea is going to work out any better than their last crazy idea?

Here’s my last question: Why would anybody vote for the Democrats?  They’ve put some very bad ideas into practice, lately, where they are in power.  Defund the police, throw out half the criminal code, praise prosecutors who won’t prosecute, let everybody out of prison – how crazy can you get?

There is always criminal justice reform.  The tinkering never stops.  I know, because I was a criminal defense attorney in the 1980s.  Reform was ongoing then and has never stopped since.  The pendulum is always swinging between leniency and public safety.  The problem now is that the Democrats have gone off the deep end, and instituted the wildest reforms imaginable.  The pendulum will inevitably swing back in the other direction to public safety and common sense.  It always does in criminal justice reform, and the upcoming election is not too soon to start.

Cornell University Physician: ‘I Was Wrong about Covid Vaccine Mandates’

Scientists and public health officials must act more humbly and recognize the limits of their knowledge, writes Dr. Paul Fenyves.


The great martial artist Bruce Lee reputedly said that all mistakes are forgivable—if one has the courage to admit the mistake.

Paul Fenyves, a primary care physician in New York City who specializes in internal medicine, seems to have learned this lesson. Fenyves, a primary care doctor at Weill Cornell Medicine, recently admitted he was wrong to support vaccine mandates.

“I was initially supportive of Covid vaccine mandates in the Fall of 2021. At the time, I was told that Covid vaccines don’t only protect the individual receiving the vaccine, but they also benefit the community by reducing spread of the virus,” Fenyves wrote on the Substack Sensible Medicine.

Convinced that mandatory vaccination would create a “wall of immunity” that would bring the pandemic to an end more quickly, Fenyves said it seemed “reasonable to prioritize societal welfare over individual autonomy,” noting that early clinical trials of Pfizer’s vaccine were shown to stop 95 percent of infections.

“Surely a vaccine that prevents almost all infections would halt community spread, right? Wrong,” he writes. “Perhaps there was a time when Covid vaccines could significantly reduce community transmission, but that time was short-lived, and the virus quickly evolved and learned to evade vaccine-induced immunity.”

For Fenyves, his awakening moment came in December 2021, when Portugal experienced a massive surge of Covid despite a vaccination rate of more than 90 percent.

Fenyves concedes there are other reasons one could support mandatory vaccination even if it doesn’t reduce community spread, noting that some contend forced vaccination is moral because it’s done “for their own good.”

“I find these arguments to be weak justifications for violating an individual’s autonomy and mandating a medical intervention,” he writes. “Furthermore, these arguments are completely inadequate when applied to young people, whose risk of hospitalization from Covid is low, and whose likelihood of benefiting from vaccination is similarly low.”

Some may argue that Fenyves is right about vaccine mandates, but for the wrong reasons.

Vinay Prasad, an associate professor in University of California, San Francisco’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, argues vaccine mandates would be wrong even if there was a community benefit because the social costs are too high.

“My conclusion was always that the societal harm of mandates far exceeds any benefit, and as such I always opposed mandates,” writes Prasad in an introduction to Fenyves’s article.

Others might wonder why it took Fenyves until December 2021 to recognize he was wrong about vaccine mandates. Put aside for a moment that vaccine mandates violate bodily autonomy and the non-aggression principle, which makes them inherently immoral.

As early as August 2021 it was clear that “vaccine breakthroughs” were quite common and that naturally immunity conferred powerful protection against Covid. Why was it not until December 2021 that Fenyves realized he was wrong about vaccine mandates?

These are fair points, but they should not overshadow the larger lesson Fenyves is sharing, which is that scientists and public health officials must act more humbly with their immense power and recognize the limits of their knowledge.

“Those in the medical community who, like me, argued that vaccines should be mandated to protect the community should feel chastened,” writes Fenyves. “When considering mandating vaccines in the future, we should proceed with humility, acknowledging that our knowledge is far from perfect and our truths are often transitory.”

Two words in the last sentence are incredibly important: knowledge and humility.

These same two words are found in F.A. Hayek’s famous 1974 Nobel Prize speech, in which he warned against scientists and planners acting on “a pretense of knowledge.” Instead of recognizing the limitations of knowledge in an infinitely complex world, Hayek saw modern humans “dizzy with success” over the marvels of modern science, which had convinced them they possessed enough knowledge to engineer society effectively.

“The curious task of economics,” he famously wrote in The Fatal Conceit, “is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.”

The antidote to this fatal conceit—which Hayek warned leads to “grave consequences”—is humility.

T.S. Eliot once observed that humility “is the most difficult of all virtues to achieve,” and a lack of it is what lurked beneath the deadly collectivist schemes of the twentieth century, from Stalin’s Five Year Plans to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and beyond.

The “fatal striving to control society” is born of arrogance, Hayek understood. And it was this arrogance that led public health officials and politicians to decide they had enough knowledge to make life-and-death decisions for others during the pandemic, to decide what they had to put into their bodies.

Fenyves is right that a healthy dose if humility is in order, and that the knowledge we possess is far from perfect.

If we fail to learn this lesson, the consequences could be even worse the next time government officials attempt to prevent a crisis from happening.

Physicians Group Sues FDA Over Ivermectin

Report: Ivermectin Obliterated 97% Of Covid Cases In Delhi, India

On June 1, the Desert Review News reported that Ivermectin had obliterated 97 percent of Covid infections in India’s capitol territory, Delhi (pop. 30 million).

The chart below shows that Delhi was experiencing more than 20,000 new cases daily in early May. By the end of the month, new cases had dropped precipitously, to a 7-day average of less than 1,500 new cases daily.

VIEW CHART

On Sept. 18, the Indian Express reported that Delhi had only 33 new Covid cases and only one new death in the previous 24 hours.

What reportedly happened in Delhi is anecdotal evidence that Ivermectin can play an important role in mitigating Covid. Anecdotal, yes, but quite impressive results if the reports are accurate.

The FDA has not approved Ivermectin for treating or preventing COVID-19 in humans. Democrats ridicule Ivermectin as a “horse de-worming” medication. In fact, there are two forms of Ivermectin, one of which is used to de-worm horses. The other, which received a Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015, is a repurposed formula used to disrupt transmission of malaria among humans. It is this latter form that reportedly has had significant results in the fight against Covid.

The beef against Ivermectin may ultimately be nothing more than (1) its cheap price, which prevents Big Pharma from making billions on less effective and more highly priced alternatives, and (2) its apparent effectiveness undercuts the Biden administration’s transparent attempt to keep voters in a heightened state of Covid fear through the 2022 elections.

ANOTHER INTRIGUING STORY ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

According to WorldOMeter, as of Sept. 19, China has had 95,689 coronavirus cases and 4,636 deaths since early 2020, while the U.S., with a population one-fourth as large as China’s, has recorded 42,869,445 cases and 691,562 deaths.

The following chart shows that since mid-April of 2020, China’s active cases have been in a virtual flatline of less than 1,000 per day…

VIEW CHART

The chart below shows that since early May of 2020, daily active cases in the U.S. have remained in the millions:

VIEW CHART

China has been known to put out misleading information about Covid, as has the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Biden administration. Assuming the statistics above are reasonably accurate, the coronavirus has had a far more devastating impact on America than on the much more populous country where it is believed to have originated.

What can possibly explain such a wide disparity? Perhaps the Gatestone Institute article “Biden Letting China Get Away with the Crime of the Century” provides a possible clue in this excerpt:

China’s military is working on the next generation of pathogens. Its National Defense University, in the 2017 edition of the authoritative Science of Military Strategy, mentioned a new kind of biological warfare of “specific ethnic genetic attacks.” China’s military researchers and analysts for a half decade have been writing about pathogens of this sort, and American officials are in fact concerned that Chinese scientists have been experimenting with, in the words of Bill Gertz of the Washington Times, “germ weapons capable of attacking ethnic groups.” Beijing’s determined campaign to collect genetic profiles of foreigners … is another indication that the Chinese military, in violation of its obligations under the Biological Weapons Convention, is building ethnic-specific bioweapons.

Was Covid-19 an ethnic-specific bioweapon? I have no idea and am not saying it was, only wondering why Biden seems so reluctant to demand a serious investigation into its origin.
