Tax Exempt Organizations Funnel Millions to BLM Marxists

“The whole political vision of the left, including socialism and communism, has failed by virtually every empirical test, in countries all around the world. But this has only led leftist intellectuals to evade and denigrate empirical evidence.” – Thomas Sowell

“The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.” –  Larry McDonald

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” – Vladimir Lenin


Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLM Global Network Foundation) is the national, organizing chapter of a network of 16 local Black Lives Matters chapters.  They are incorporated in Delaware and they get millions of dollars in donations, but are not a tax-exempt organization. BLM is the primary organizational outgrowth of the more decentralized Black Lives Matter movement, and is a fiscally-sponsored project of Thousand Currents, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, whose donations are tax exempt.  They are in Oakland, California.

And there you have it, send money to Thousand Currents and you can take it off your taxes just as George Soros has done by donating $33 million to the communist BLM cause to destroy America.  Soros’s Foundation has also poured $230 million into racial equality, $150 million in grants for Black-led racial justice groups, and another $70 million toward local grants for criminal justice reform and civic engagement opportunities.

The latest 990 I could find for Thousand Currents is from 2017, and they weren’t too poor then.  Bet 2020’s tax returns will be of great interest.

Thousand Currents

Thousand Currents is run by a guy named Paul Strassberg, a far leftist who also worked for the Ford Foundation who is a huge benefactor of the far left.

(Regarding the Ford Foundation, they spent $25 million writing a new constitution for America.  A Constitution for the New States of America, from the 1974 book, The Emerging Constitution by Rexford G. Tugwell, who helped develop policy recommendations leading up to Roosevelt’s New Deal, illustrates with chilling clarity the final objective of regional governance conspirators. The goal is a corporate state concentrating economic, political and social powers in the hands of a ruling elite. “A Constitution for the Newstates of America” is the fortieth version of this revolutionary document prepared by a team of social experimenters at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, Fund for the Republic (Ford Foundation).  They are the enemy of freedom.)

In June 2020, the Capital Research Center revealed that the board of Thousand Currents includes Susan Rosenberg, a former Marxist terrorist with the notorious May 19 Communist Organization.

Strassberg is a former Peace Corp volunteer and he runs Thousand Currents who has an alliance with Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF); thus, your donation is tax deductible.

Twenty-five percent of the millions of dollars that goes into BLMGFN is spent on salaries and benefits.  Forty-six percent goes to consultant fees.  Seventy-one percent of revenue goes to salaries and consultant fees!  Twenty-nine percent goes to paying people and signs and so forth.  What a racket!  They’re shrewd, no one knows this!  Where is the IRS?  If Soros gave them $33 million, where is that money?  Are there any audits of Thousand Currents or BLMGNF?  All the Hollywood pinheads and corporate idiots and everyone else writing checks are going right into the Marxist’s pockets.  Link

In 2018 and 2019, respectively, Thousand Currents funneled $2,622,017 and $3,354,654 in donor-restricted assets to BLM.

Among the organizations that have specifically earmarked contributions to Thousand Currents for BLM are the NoVo Foundation ($1,525,000 from 2015 to 2018), the W.K. Kellogg Foundation ($900,000 from 2016 to 2019), and Borealis Philanthropy ($343,000 from 2016 to 2018).

No one is exposing them, not the New York Times, not mainstream media, not Fox, not One America News, because to do that would be to label yourself as a racist.

ActBlue

Thousand Currents isn’t the only donor avenue to BLM.  Visitors to BLM who seek to contribute funds are transported to the web page of ActBlue Charities, an organization that facilitates donations to “democrats and progressives.” ActBlue is the left’s favorite “Dark Money” machine.

As of May 21, 2020, ActBlue had given $119 million to the presidential campaign of Joe Biden. The worldwide BLM protests that subsequently erupted in response to the May 25 death of a black criminal suspect named George Floyd, sparked a new surge of donations to BLM via ActBlue.

Major corporations such as Apple, Disney, Nike and hundreds of others may be pouring untold and unaccounted millions into ActBlue under the name of Black Lives Matter, funds that in fact can go to fund the election of a Democrat President Biden. BLM hates Trump and wants him out of office; their riots are spreading for that very reason.

The role of tax-exempt foundations tied to the fortunes of the greatest industrial and financial companies such as Rockefeller, Ford, Kellogg, Hewlett and Soros say that there is a far deeper and far more sinister agenda to current disturbances than spontaneous outrage would suggest.

Here is ActBlue’s latest 990 from 2017.  Check out ActBlue on Open Secrets.

Black Lives Matter

BLM protests rely on the false belief that blacks are targeted for “extrajudicial killings by police and vigilantes.”  It is a lie, as demonstrated by decades of hard empirical evidence.   I would urge everyone to read John Perazzo’s article, Exposing the Lies of Black Lives Matter.  The annual violent-crime arrest statistics for 2003-2009, broken down by race, can be found here: 200320042005200620072008, and 2009.

Much of the demands by BLM are clearly modeled on elements of the Black Panthers’ “Ten-Point Program” put forth by the Black Panther Party in the 1960s.  BLM is closely allied with numerous groups that are fronts for the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), a Marxist-Leninist entity that calls for the overthrow of capitalism and the elimination of police departments. In an article for Accuracy In Media, economist and investigative journalist James Simpson has identified some of these FRSO fronts that are tied to BLM.

At a July 2015 conference in Cleveland, BLM presented There’s A Method To The Movement: Examining Community Organizing Methods and Methodologies, a workshop that taught, among other things, the tactics and philosophy of the late Saul Alinsky. Known as the godfather of “community organizing,” a term that serves as a euphemism for fomenting public anger and in some cases, violence, Alinsky was a communist fellow-traveler who laid out a set of basic tactics designed to help radical activists destroy their enemies while gaining power for themselves.  Hillary and Obama learned his lessons well.

Alinsky also exhorted activists and political radicals to be entirely unpredictable and unmistakably willing – for the sake of their cause – to cause the government, or the society at large, to descend into chaos and anarchy. They must be prepared, Alinsky explained, to “go into a state of complete confusion and draw their opponent into the vortex of the same confusion.”  Reveille for Radicals, page 150-151.

BLM and their associate organizations are Marxists.  As such, they hate God and want all vestiges of America’s Judeo-Christian society eliminated.  In June 2020, 40-year-old BLM activist Shaun King demanded that religious statues showing a light-skinned Jesus be toppled to the ground. King said on Twitter: “Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.” Asserting also that “all murals and stained-glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends” should likewise be destroyed.  Like the other uneducated fools of BLM, his stupidity of Biblical history is monumental.

Obama Endorsed BLM

In August 2015, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) approved a resolution endorsing the BLM movement. The resolution stated that “the DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming Black Lives Matter.”

BLM leaders met at the White House with President Obama as well as senior advisor Valerie Jarrett and other administration officials.  They told reporters that the president personally supported the BLM movement.  In a December 2015 interview on National Public Radio, Obama described BLM as a positive force on policing in America, notwithstanding the violence and incendiary rhetoric exhibited by many of its members.  In February 2016, Obama invited BLM leaders to the White House during Black History Month.

On July 13, 2016 — six days after a BLM supporter in Dallas had shot and killed five police officers and wounded seven others — President Obama hosted BLM leaders DeRay Mckesson, Brittany Packnett, and Mica Grimmat at a four-and-a-half-hour meeting at the White House. Also invited were Al Sharpton, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D), St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman (D), Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D), and some police chiefs.

BLM Anti-Semitism

More than 1,000 BLM activists signed a statement proclaiming their “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and commitment to the liberation of Palestine’s land and people;” demanding an end to Israel’s “occupation” of “Palestine,” condemning “Israel’s brutal war on Gaza and chokehold on the West Bank,” urging the U.S. government to end all aid to Israel, and exhorting black institutions to support the Palestinian led Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions movement against the Jewish state.

Over the Shavuot festival on May 30, 2020, BLM members carried out a pogrom in Fairfax, a Los Angeles community largely populated by ultra-Orthodox Jews. On that day, BLM not only vandalized five synagogues and three Jewish schools in Fairfax, but also looted most of the Jewish businesses on Fairfax Avenue. Moreover, they chanted  “F*** the police and kill the Jews.”

At a July 1, 2020 demonstration in Washington, D.C., BLM protesters tied their own cause to that of the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. The rally was billed as a gesture of support for the “Day of Rage” that had been called by the Palestinian Authority and other groups to protest Israel’s plan to annex portions of the West Bank. The BLM protesters chanted: “Israel, we know you, you murder children, too.” Chants also alternated between “Black lives matter!” and “Palestinian lives matter!”  *Link*

BLM in American Schools

In 2016, BLM started to move beyond street protests and began to establish a growing influence in America’s public schools. In October of that year, teachers in Seattle organized a “Black Lives Matter at School Day.” When the National Education Association subsequently adopted a resolution endorsing that measure, “BLM at School Day” grew into a full “BLM at School National Week of Action,” to be held annually during the first week of February as part of Black History Month activities. As of 2018, it is now in school districts in more than 20 major cities.  They teach kindergarten to 2nd grade children to be good little Marxists.  Link

A key resource for BLM-related lessons is a textbook titled Teaching for Black Lives, whose opening sentence reads: “Black students’ minds and bodies are under attack.”  The book stokes fear, anger and resentment in the minds of children of color.  One reference to “the continuing police murders of black people,” for instance, declares: “In August of 2014, Michael Brown was killed in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, his body left in the streets for hours as a reminder to the black residents in the neighborhood that their lives are meaningless to the American Empire.”  Lies and more lies.

The book also includes essays bearing such titles as: “Rethinking Islamophobia: Combating Bigotry by Raising the Voices of Black Muslims,” “Plotting Inequalities, Building Resistance,” and “Racial Justice Is Not a Choice: White Supremacy, High-Stakes Testing, and the Punishment of Black and Brown Students.”

By 2019, “Black Lives Matter at School Week” (BLMSW) was being observed by thousands of educators in public school districts across the United States. BLMSW’s online guide abounds with suggested lesson plans and recommended resources for educating students, all of which are dangerous to the equality of all Americans.  Link

Conclusion

In my recent article of June 23, 2020, I wrote about Obama’s love of communist Nelson Mandela, the terror of white farmers in South Africa, Winnie Mandela’s necklacing of their enemies, and whites having to live in compounds to avoid being murdered.

Obama said, “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings. The day that he was released from prison gave me a sense of what human beings can do when they’re guided by their hopes and not by their fears.”

Yes, Obama drew inspiration from an avowed communist whose intent was to destroy white South African farmers and give their land to blacks. Does he revere the rape and slaughter of pregnant women and children and their farmer fathers hacked to death by Mandela’s black forces?  Apparently so.  His words have inflamed those who hate America’s whites who are burning, looting and murdering in America today.

De-what the police?

These days we often hear and see the slogan “Defund the Police”. I would like to draw our attention to the word “defund”. And I would encourage the sloganeers to heed the words of the famous swordsman Inigo Montoya (from that wonderful film The Princess Bride): “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

My friend and former colleague Tim Perry, PhD, adds refreshing clarity: “Now that I know that ‘Defund the Police’ means ‘Stop treating every social problem as a police problem’, I’m all for it. Just don’t understand why the people who pick slogans picked this one. Because what it says is not what they tell me they mean.”

To back up Dr Perry’s observation on “what it says”, consider the following dictionary definitions of “defund”:

  • to withdraw funding from (Merriam Webster)
  • prevent from continuing to receive funds (Google search result)
  • to withdraw financial support from (Dictionary.com)
  • to stop providing the money to pay for something (Cambridge English Dictionary)
  • to remove the funds from (a person, organisation, or scheme) (Collins English Dictionary)
  • prevent from continuing to receive funds (Oxford Dictionary)
  • to withdraw financial support from (The Free Dictionary)
  • to stop providing funds, esp. government funds, for (a program, group, etc.) (YourDictionary)
  • to cancel funding for (Wiktionary)
  • cancel continued funding  (WordWeb Online)
  • to stop the flow of funds to (Definition.org)

Also, consider why (besides the lexicon’s definitions of “defund”) many English-language users might take “Defund the Police” to mean what the dictionaries say it means, i.e., to stop funding the police:

  • When I derail a train, I get the train off the tracks
  • When I decaffeinate coffee, I take out the caffeine from the coffee
  • When I deforest an area of land, I get rid of the trees
  • When I deactivate something, I make it inactive or ineffective
  • When I defrost my windshield, I get rid of the frost
  • When I debone a fish, I remove the bones from the fish
  • When I debug/delouse my cat, I get rid of its fleas and lice
  • When I dealcoholize a substance, I remove the alcohol from it
  • When I decongest my sinuses, I get rid of the congestion
  • When I declog the drain, I get rid of whatever clogs it up
  • When I dehorn a bull, I remove its horns
  • When I decolonialize, I make a nation free from colonial influences
  • When I dekulakize, I get rid of prosperous peasants
  • When I dematerialize, I disappear by becoming immaterial
  • When I dehydrate something, I remove the water/hydration from it
  • When I deinvest, I withdraw my investment
  • When we defrock a priest or judge, we remove them from a position of honor or privilege
  • When the government defunds Planned Parenthood (which many of us hope they will do!), the government stops providing funds for it

Also, consider why many reasonable people are legitimately concerned about defunding the police (when the word “defund” is understood in its normal lexical usage as canceling/ withdrawing financial support). That is, consider these observations from Steven Pinker, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University:

When law enforcement vanishes, all manner of violence breaks out: looting, settling old scores, ethnic cleansing, and petty warfare among gangs, warlords and mafias. This was obvious in the remnants of Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, and parts of Africa in the 1990s, but can also happen in countries with a long tradition of civility. As a young teenager in proudly peaceable Canada during the romantic 1960s, I was a true believer in Bakunin’s anarchism. I laughed off my parents’ argument that if the government ever laid down its arms all hell would break loose. Our competing predictions were put to the test at 8:00 A.M. on October 17, 1969, when the Montreal police went on strike. By 11:20 A.M. the first bank was robbed. By noon most downtown stores had closed because of looting. Within a few more hours, taxi drivers burned down the garage of a limousine service that had competed with them for airport customers, a rooftop sniper killed a provincial police officer, rioters broke into several hotels and restaurants, and a doctor slew a burglar in his suburban home. By the end of the day, six banks had been robbed, a hundred shops had been looted, twelve fires had been set, forty carloads of storefront glass had been broken, and three million dollars in property damage had been inflicted, before city authorities had to call in the army and, of course, the Mounties to restore order. This decisive empirical test left my politics in tatters (and offered a foretaste of life as a scientist).

Steven Pinker, The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature (Penguin Books, 2003).

Happily, there is some calm in the sloganeering storm. Enter: Calgary Chief of Police Mark Neufeld.

Here is a portion of a recent news report Defund the Calgary police: Need to define it first, says chief:

While Black Lives Matter movements have spurred calls for cities to defund the police, Calgary’s police chief said defund needs to be defined first.

In a meeting earlier this week with media, Calgary’s Chief Constable Mark Neufeld said everyone has a different idea of what defunding police means.

“For some, this is about diverting money, for some this is about dismantling police and for others, it’s about disarming police,” he said.

“I think we’re talking about defunding the police before we define what we want them to do, and what we don’t want them to do and perhaps exploring legitimate options for addressing the demand in a practical and effective way.”

Permit me to close with a heavily embellished paraphrase of our earlier quote from the famous swordsman Inigo Montoya: Protesters keep using the slogan “Defund the Police,” but I don’t think the slogan means what many protestors claim it means—and I’m deeply troubled and even suspicious that those protestors continue to use the slogan because there are also many protestors who do think it means what it clearly says it means.

As Palestinian Authority calls for jihad against Israel, US House Subcommittee votes to give it $250,000,000

“PA-affiliated TV channels have been running a video including a song with an explicit call for ‘jihad’ — a holy war — against Israel until ‘it is too late.’” — i24News, July 6, 2020

No problem! If the House Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs gets its way, money for that jihad is coming just in time, straight from the Great Satan.

“US House Subcommittee Passes $250 Million in Funding for Palestinian Authority Arabs,” JNS News Service, July 10, 2020:

A U.S. House subcommittee included $250 million in funding for Israeli-Palestinian Authority dialogue and Palestinian Authority business development in a $66 billion spending bill passed earlier this week, despite the Trump administration defunding both areas.

The House Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs passed the bill on Monday. It includes $50 million annually over five years for dialogue programs and investment in the Palestinian Authority’s private sector: $110 million for the former and $140 million for the latter.

Additionally, bill seeks “to restore humanitarian and development assistance to Palestinian Authoirty Arabs to continue the viability of a two-state solution by providing resources to organizations working in the West Bank and Gaza,” said House Appropriations Committee chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) in a statement introducing the bill.

It also includes $225 million for Palestinian Authority relief and development, despite the Trump administration slashing funding in that category to virtually zero.

Israel-related lobbying groups AIPAC and J Street have applauded the move…

Woman Shot And Killed After Group Says ‘All Lives Matter’

An Indianapolis woman was shot to death along a canal last weekend after either she or someone in her group reportedly told a group of Black Lives Matter supporters that all lives matter.

The victim, Jessica Doty Whitaker, and her fiancée, Jose Ramirez, were hanging out at the canal with two other people when someone in their group said the N-word, which prompted a confrontation with a group of strangers, Ramirez said, according to Fox 59 News.

When the suspect’s group said “black lives matter,” either Whitaker or someone else in her group replied “all lives matter,” Ramirez said. After realizing both groups were armed, they separated and fist-bumped before walking away.

They thought that the other group had left, Ramirez said, “but they were sitting on St. Clair waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot.”

“She shouldn’t have lost her life. She’s got a 3-year-old son she loved dearly,” Ramirez said. “It’s hard to tell him his mom is in heaven and if you want to talk to her you have to look up and say, ‘I love you, mom.’”

“We’re going through a lot. The 3-year-old boy doesn’t even understand really,” he added. “I just want justice for Jessica and her son and her family.”

Two shootings occurred at the canal last week, including one where 14-year-old Curtis White Junior died during what police say was an attempted armed robbery.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Captain Jerry Leary said that the canal is still safe to go to.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Indiana State Police, the parks department, and the Department of Metropolitan Development all work together to police the canal, according to the report. They have added more security cameras and are increasing overnight patrol.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing. Police said that anyone with any information can contact 317-262-TIPS.

Texas Border Patrol Agents Nab Three Muslims from Iran trying to Cross Illegally into U.S.

What could they possibly have been planning? No doubt they just wanted to do the jobs that Americans refuse to take, right?

While Leftists continue to deny that border control is a national security issue, recently a Muslim migrant from Jordan named Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi was sentenced to three years in prison for sneaking at least six Yemeni Muslims into the United States across the border from Mexico. Their intentions were unlikely to have been benign. Judicial Watch reported back in 2016 that police in a New Mexico border town arrested a woman they described as an “Islamic refugee” who was “in possession of the region’s gas pipeline plans.”

This was, it said, the latest in “a number of stories in the last few years about Mexican drug traffickers smuggling Islamic terrorists into the United States through the porous southern border…. A few months ago Judicial Watch reported that members of a cell of Islamic terrorists stationed in Mexico cross into the U.S. to explore targets for future attacks with the help of Mexican drug traffickers.”

But building a wall? That’s racist.

Wednesday on Twitter, Rep. Rashida Tlaib endorsed fellow radical Rep. Ilhan Omar’s call to dismantle “the whole system of oppression” in the U.S.

“The mortality rate for black Minnesotans to COVID is twice as high as it is with other races…” Omar stated in a Tuesday press conference addressing “systemic racism.” “I see the pain and the havoc it is wreaking on the black community in Minneapolis.

“We must recognize that these systems of oppression are linked. As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequity. So we cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

“My sister @IlhanMN said it best: We must begin with dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it,” Tlaib tweeted. “Pass it on.”

Illegal Immigrant Child Rapist Released from Jail by Maryland Sanctuary County Remains at Large

A Maryland county that offers illegal immigrants sanctuary keeps releasing dangerous criminals from jail to shield them from federal authorities, most recently a man from El Salvador who raped a seven-year-old girl multiple times. Rather than honor a detainer issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), officials in Montgomery County freed the child rapist on bond recently and he remains at large. Court documents obtained by a local media outlet say the 56-year-old, Rene Ramos-Hernandez, who reportedly lives illegally in Brentwood “forced unwanted sexual intercourse” with the girl “at least ten times.”

In a statement issued this week, ICE blasts Montgomery County officials for protecting illegal aliens who commit state crimes. “Montgomery County continues the practice of not honoring lawful ICE detainers and release potential public safety threats back into the community,” said acting Baltimore Field Office Director Francisco Madrigal. “When they refuse to give adequate notification of an impending release to allow a safe transfer of custody, it shows their actions are insincere. ICE believes the best way to protect public safety is for law enforcement to work together.” The agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on June 19 and authorities blew it off, instead discharging Ramos-Hernandez on June 23. ICE was notified that the illegal immigrant rapist was let go, but officers at the Montgomery County jail refused to hold Ramos-Hernandez until ERO officers arrived at the facility, according to the agency.

Ramos-Hernandez has lived in the U.S. illegally for years. In fact, the rapes occurred from 2002 to 2003, when he was in his late 30s and the girl was just seven. The victim reported the crimes to Montgomery County Police in 2017 and it took almost two years for local authorities to track down the illegal alien. On June 18 he was booked at the Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) in Rockville on two counts of second-degree rape and one count of sexual abuse of a minor. The next day ICE lodged the detainer.  A Montgomery County judge granted Ramos-Hernandez a $30,000 bond and now the feds cannot find him even though bail conditions include electronic monitoring and curfew. Ramos-Hernandez was also ordered to have no contact with minors, which is a joke considering authorities do not even know where he is. He provided the court with a Brentwood address and claims to work as a “remodeler,” according to court records cited in the news story. He faces up to 70 years in prison if authorities ever find him.

This case is part of a national crisis generated by local governments around the country that offer violent illegal immigrants sanctuary. Under a local-federal partnership known as 287(g), ICE is notified of jail inmates in the country illegally so that they can be deported after serving time for state crimes or making bail like Ramos-Hernandez. Unfortunately, a growing number of city and county law enforcement agencies are instead releasing the illegal aliens—many with serious convictions such as child sex offenses, rape and murder—rather than turn them over to federal authorities for removal. The lack of cooperation has led ICE to resort to desperate measures, like striking preemptively by publicly disclosing convicts, complete with mug shots, scheduled to be released before they are actually let go by police in municipalities that offer illegal aliens sanctuary. A few months ago, ICE targeted six offenders incarcerated in two Maryland counties—Montgomery and Prince George’s—notorious for shielding illegal immigrants from the feds. Most were incarcerated for sexual crimes involving children, including rape and serious physical abuse that resulted in death. A couple of the offenders were jailed for murder and assault.

Besides Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, two other large Maryland jurisdictions—Baltimore County and the city of Baltimore—shield illegal immigrants from the feds and deportation. Maryland’s Attorney General, the state’s chief law enforcement official, issued a legal memo in late 2018 defending the practice. Complying with ICE detainers for criminal illegal aliens is voluntary, the Attorney General writes in the document, and state and local law enforcement officials are potentially exposed to liability if they hold someone beyond the release date determined by state law. In 2017, Baltimore’s Chief Deputy State’s Attorney instructed prosecutors to think twice before charging illegal immigrants with minor, non-violent crimes to shield them from Trump administration deportation efforts. This summer Montgomery County took an extra step to help illegal immigrants by launching a $10 million COVID-19 relief fund. Judicial Watch sued on behalf of two county residents and a federal court ruled that the payments likely violate federal law and irreparably harm county taxpayers.

Our special guest Andrew C. McCarthy, a former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, has been an integral and informed voice on the rising violence carried out by Antifa in the United States and the subsequent inquiry to designate them as a terror group.

McCarthy is is best known for leading the prosecution against the Blind Sheik (Omar Abdel Rahman) and 11 other jihadi terrorists for their part in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and plots to bomb other New York City landmarks.

After the 9/11 terror attacks, McCarthy supervised the U.S. attorney’s command post near Ground Zero. He later served as an adviser to the deputy secretary of defense. McCarthy is a highly respected author, senior fellow at the National Review Institute and  contributing editor at National Review.

Host Ryan Mauro, director of Clarion Intelligence Network and Shillman Fellow, guided the conversation on the complex structures of a terror designation.

During the webinar, McCarthy framed several key questions and comparisons that address the legal and practical challenges of designating Antifa a terror group:

  • McCarthy noted that people typically decide what outcome they want, then work backwards. A better approach, he opines, is to organize the charge around the evidence.
  • The law isn’t fixated on how organized a group is (for example, compare the Mafia, which is highly structured, to Antifa, which is a decentralized group), but whether it’s organized to violate the law.

When asked about the confusion over Antifa being “anti-fascist” and using a moniker to gain moral and financial support, McCarthy warned about the “exquisite” use of language these groups use to gain cover for their violence. He compares the better-known example of CAIR, who are “very shrewd about wrapping themselves in American civil rights.”

“Even though they’re promoting an ideology that would undermine civil rights [sharia law], they wrap themselves in the thing they’re trying to destroy,” he commented.

Mauro and McCarthy also discussed the intersections between the Nation of Islam, Islamist Jihad, the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood as examples of how terror designations played out — or didn’t, and how that may inform us as to how an Antifa designation might be handled.

3 Out of 4 Convicted Terrorists Came to U.S. Legally Via Current Immigration System

Illustrating the national security threats created by the nation’s immigration system, the overwhelming majority of individuals convicted of terrorism are foreigners who entered the United States legally through various federal programs. Three out of every four convicted terrorists between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016 are foreign born and came to the United States through our immigration system, according to a new report issued jointly by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ).

At least 549 individuals were convicted of terrorism-related charges in American federal courts since 2001 and 402 of them—approximately 73%–were foreign-born, the report says. Here’s the breakdown by citizenship at the time of their convictions; 254 were not U.S. citizens, 148 were naturalized and received American citizenship and 147 were U.S. born. Additionally, 1,716 foreigners with national security concerns were removed from the United States. The Trump administration stresses that figures include only those aliens who were convicted or removed and therefore do not represent the total measure of foreign terrorist infiltration of the United States. Statistics on individuals facing terrorism charges who have not yet been convicted will be provided in follow-up reports that will be made available to the public.

This DHS/DOJ report, issued this month, is disturbing enough and reveals that a significant number of terrorists entered the country through immigration programs that use family ties and extended-family chain migration as a basis for entry. Among them is Mufid Elfgeeh, a national of Yemen who benefitted from chain migration in 1997 and was sentenced to more than 22 years in prison for attempting to recruit fighters for ISIS. Sudanese Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan came to the U.S. in 2012 as a relative of a lawful permanent resident and eventually pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to ISIS. Pakistani Uzair Paracha was admitted to the U.S. in 1980 as a family member of a lawful permanent resident and in 2006 was sentenced to more than three decades in prison for providing material support to Al Qaeda. Khaleel Ahmed, a national of India, was admitted to the United States in 1998 as a family member of a naturalized United States citizen. Ahmed eventually became an American citizen and in 2010 was sentenced to more than eight years in prison for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

Other convicted terrorists came to the U.S. through the controversial visa lottery program, the multi-agency probe found. Among them is Abdurasaul Hasanovich Juraboev, a national of Uzbekistan who was admitted into the country as a diversity visa lottery recipient in 2011. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to support ISIS and in 2017 Juraboev was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Sudanese Ali Shukri Amin was admitted to the U.S. in 1999 as the child of a diversity visa lottery recipient and subsequently obtained American citizenship through naturalization. In 2015, he was sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for conspiring to provide material support and resources to ISIS. Amin admitted to using social media to provide advice and encouragement to ISIS and its supporters and facilitated ISIS supporters seeking to travel to Syria to join the terrorist group. Amin also helped a Virginia teen named Reza Niknejad get to Syria to join ISIS in 2015.

“The United States faces a serious and persistent terror threat, and individuals with ties to terror can and will use any pathway to enter our country,” the new DHS/DOJ report states. “Accordingly, DHS has taken significant steps to improve the security of all potential routes used by known or suspected terrorists (KST) to travel to the United States to ensure that individuals who would do harm to Americans are identified and detected, and their plots are disrupted. These figures reflect the challenges faced by the United States and demonstrate the necessity to remain vigilant and proactive in our counterterrorism posture.”

Leftist Effort to Ban Cops from Using Tear Gas Against Lawless Protesters Crushed by Court

A preposterous lawsuit demanding cops be banned from using tear gas to disperse lawless protestors who block city streets and interfere with traffic has been struck down by a judge who ruled this week that the restriction “unnecessarily burdens the police and puts them and the public at risk.” The case was filed in Virginia by a leftist civil rights group that claims the city of Richmond and its police department as well as the state police violated the Constitutional rights of law-breaking protestors by using tear gas and other crowd control tactics during a disruptive Black Lives Matter demonstration outside Richmond City Hall last week. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the Virginia Student Power Network, asks the court to broadly ban the use of “chemical munitions, irritants, explosives, stun weapons, and physical-impact weapons.”

About 150 people participated in the protest which was supposed to include an overnight sit-in outside Richmond City Hall to address police violence and community advocacy, according to a local news report. Protestors also “set up an encampment, blocked the city streets, and interfered with traffic,” court documents show. After midnight police determined that it was an unlawful assembly because “conditions of activity such as sit-ins, sit-downs, blocking traffic, blocking entrances or exits of buildings that impact public safety or infrastructure.” Officers announced “multiple times” via megaphone that the blockade was an unlawful assembly and proceeded to disperse the unruly crowd by firing tear gas, flash bangs and rubber bullets. Around 12 people were arrested. Following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, a number of violent protests have taken place in Virginia’s capital city of Richmond. Mayor Levar Stoney, who apologized for police firing tear gas on Black Lives Matter protestors, has recognized that cops have been “hit with bricks, they’ve been hit with cinder blocks, stones and urine and other caustic material.” Nevertheless, Stoney has marched with the anti-police mob to demonstrate his solidarity.

In the complaint against the city and police, protestors allege a violation of right to assemble, violation of right to freedom of speech, and violation of state code in declaring an unlawful assembly. The leftist activists asked the court to declare that police have been operating unlawfully and to issue an order prohibiting officers from engaging in activities that supposedly violate their Constitutional rights. Among them, according to the complaint, is banning the use of tear gas. “Since the tragic murder of George Floyd and the protests against police violence that have followed, state and local police operating in Richmond have shown a pattern of violence toward protesters who speak out against systemic and anti-Black racism,” said Eden Heilman, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Virginia, which filed the lawsuit. “When these young people tried to educate their community about racism in Richmond and how to dismantle it, police stormed in and turned their positive space into a war zone.”

The ACLU lawyer conveniently fails to mention the young people’s illegal behavior, which the court found “provides a legal basis for a declaration of unlawful assembly” by police. In her ruling, Richmond City Circuit Judge Beverly W. Snukals also denies the request for an injunction broadly blocking the use of tear gas, writing that “plaintiffs have not established that harm is certain or of such imminence that there is a clear and present need for such equitable relief.” The ruling continues: “Placing these restrictions on defendants in the form of a preliminary injunction unnecessarily burdens the police and puts them and the public at risk.” The ACLU blasted the decision, accusing the court of allowing police to use tear gas and “other tools of war” against events that police declare to be unlawful assemblies without merit. “We will continue to fight in court to bring justice to people who are speaking out against systemic, anti-Black racism by continuing to pursue this lawsuit on behalf of the Virginia Student Power Network and individual protestors,” the group declares in a statement posted on its website. The ACLU also writes that now is the time to “divest from police and reinvest in solution-oriented community programs.”

Boston: “Day of Rage” Protesters Call for Violent Destruction of Israel

The Leftist-jihadist alliance on abundant display.

“‘Day of Rage’ Protesters in Boston Chant Anti-Israel, Pro-Hamas Slogans, Call for Intifada,” by Jackson Richman, JNS, July 3, 2020:

Tensions brewed at “Day of Rage” rallies and vehicle caravans nationwide on July 1, protesting Israel’s plans to apply sovereignty to parts of Judea and Samaria, more commonly known as the West Bank. The name refers to times when Palestinians riot and hurl rocks against Israeli soldiers and civilians, most recently near the border with the Gaza Strip.

Approximately 300 people associated with BDS Boston—a coalition of far-left anti-Israel organizations—chanted Hamas slogans on Wednesday night in front of the offices of the Anti-Defamation League and the Jewish Community Relations Council in the Massachusetts capital.

The BDS organizers said that they were protesting police brutality in the aftermath of the killing of African-American George Floyd, 46, on May 25 in the custody of Minneapolis police.

“The protesters hijacked legitimate outrage over the death of George Floyd to justify an ugly display of hostility towards Israel and Jewish organizations on the streets of Boston,” said Dexter Van Zile, an analyst at the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis, or CAMERA, which is based in Boston. “This wasn’t about changing American police policies, but about coarsening and brutalizing the discourse around Israel and Jews through the exploitation of black suffering.”

CAMERA staff filmed the rally. A speaker for BDS Boston is on video leading the large crowd in the Hamas chant “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which is a call for the replacement of Israel with a majority-Arab Muslim country.

At other times, the crowd can be heard loudly chanting “Intifada, Intifada,” the name of violent Palestinian uprisings. Hamas is a U.S.-designated terrorist group.

“Kaffiyeh-wearing college students and mostly middle-class white activists with Palestinian flags were shouting for the violent elimination of the world’s only Jewish state,” said Van Zile. “Think about that: They’re chanting eliminationist rhetoric outside the offices of mainstream American Jewish organizations—a fact that shows that this wasn’t simply about Israel, but about Jews as Jews.”…

The Beast and His Mark

“I see in Communism the focus of the concentrated evil of our time.” – Ex-Communist, Whitaker Chambers, Witness, xxxvii


In the apocalyptic revelation given to John the Beloved, we are told of a “scarlet coloured beast” that, being ridden by a woman symbolizing “Babylon the Great,” would make war against the Lord’s people (Revelation 17:3-6). This vicious Red beast would besiege and tyrannize the whole earth. Because of the widespread power of the beast, we are informed that “the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4) As a consequence, the beast causes the people of the earth to “receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads,” without which “no man might buy or sell” (Revelation 13:16-17). The purpose of this article is to show how John’s prophecy of the beast and his mark is being literally fulfilled in our day.

Before we discuss what the “mark of the beast” is and how it is being administered, let’s discuss the beast. Who or what is this “scarlet coloured beast”? It seems apparent to me that the woman symbolizing Babylon, and the beast which carries her, represent a system of global governance created by the Dragon. As noted, it is the Dragon who gives power to the beast (Revelation 13:4). Answering who or what the Dragon is becomes most helpful in discerning what the beast really is.

The book of Revelation makes it plain in more than one location that the Dragon is Satan, the Evil One, the arch-enemy of God and man. Revelation 12 tells us that after the War in Heaven which took place before mankind came down to earth “the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:3-9).

This War in Heaven involved all of us – you and me. We were there. We took part. And we chose the winning side! In that pre-earth state, described in detail in my book The Lineage of the Gods, God our Father proposed a Plan for the salvation of mankind. Crucial to His Plan was agency and accountability. Lucifer, however, proposed an alternative plan which would have destroyed the free will of mankind and exalted him “above the stars of God” (Isaiah 14:12-15).

When Lucifer’s perverse plan of slavery was rejected, he and those “angels” (i.e. children of our Heavenly Father) who supported his plan rebelled. They fought against our Father and those of us – you and me – who supported His Plan of Freedom and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. When Satan lost and was “cast out” of Heaven, he continued his war against mankind’s agency here. What John is seeing in Revelation relative to our day is merely an earthly continuation of that same War in Heaven.

Satan’s war is being waged against everyone, but more particularly against the humble followers of Christ. We are told that the Dragon makes war with all those who “keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17). It is in this context of Satan’s war against mankind and against Christ that we first learn of the terrifying beast.

The beast is Satan’s weapon of choice. The beast is the vehicle through which the Dragon, or Satan, promotes his war against Christ. It is how he extends his control over the earth. The beast, of course, is not a real beast – it is a metaphor for Satan’s system of malevolence. We might accurately describe it as a “beast system.” It is with this beast system that the kings of the earth unite. These world leaders “shall give their power and strength unto the beast” (Revelation 17:12-13).

As we gaze upon the situation today, which beast-like system do we see extended throughout the whole earth? Which system do we see dominating in all lands and making war against the Lord and the principles of Liberty? While there are multiple competing systems that deny the Christ and restrict man’s Freedom, there is one more prevalent and powerful than all others: Satanic communism.

Communism has many shades and wears many masks, so it is not always immediately apparent that you are dealing with communism. But I submit that communism, in one of its many forms, is the most widely-accepted political system on earth. Socialism, for instance, is nothing but a branch of the communist conspiracy. I have often called socialism communism with a smiley face. Because it wears a smiley face, its principles have been adopted in literally every nation on earth. Look at every nation and you will find some or all of the ten planks of The Communist Manifesto in full force.

The international socialist movement, of which Fabian Socialism is the most powerful strand, was created by Karl Marx and his fanatical supporters. There is very little substantive difference between communism and socialism – and both achieve the same results. Both centralize government, ruin economies, degrade morality, abolish the family unit, and destroy Freedom. And it is this same communist conspiracy that created the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, etc. I repeat, this communist/socialist monstrosity is the most widely-implemented system in the world.

Soviet Russia, Red China, and North Korea are the three premier examples of communism in action. But if you look beyond their borders, you find socialism absolutely everywhere. India, the second most populous nation on earth, was an early target of communist subversion and now bears a socialist government and is a formal partner in the BRICS alliance which includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, and other states. Throughout the Middle East, socialist governments abound. And most of these, from Iran to Egypt to Turkey to Pakistan, are propped up by the Russians and Chinese. Central and South America is a hotbed of communism, with openly-communist regimes dominating nations like Cuba and Venezuela, and closet communists ruling in Mexico, Nicaragua, and elsewhere. Africa is also a little-discussed center of communist activity. Europe is almost entirely socialist – and proudly so.  Even the United States, in contravention of her inspired Constitution, has adopted all ten planks of The Communist Manifesto to greater or lesser degree.

Without any doubt, the communist system is the most widespread system on earth. The Comintern, or Communist International, has made sure of that. And communism is the foremost system calling for “world revolution” and the overthrow of all traditional values, human Freedom, and Christ’s Church. More people have been pillaged, abused, raped, enslaved, and murdered under communism in the past century than under all other systems in all previous centuries of earth’s history combined. There has simply never been anything like the beast system of communism.

It also seems significant that the beast is described as “scarlet,” or red. In fact, during the War in Heaven described earlier, the Dragon is also described as “red” (Revelation 12:3). Author Farley Anderson, in his wonderful work The Book of Revelation Today, said this about identifying the beast:

“We next see that the beast is a military superpower (Revelation 13:4). From Revelation 13:8 we learn that almost all the earth shall worship the beast. The word worship is strong, but consider how doctrines of communism are taught and learned, and how, directly and indirectly, the world financially supports communism. We then realize that the word worship is very appropriately used. Last, but not least, we see in Revelation 17:3 that the beast is scarlet colored. Identifying the beast as satanic communism may be as simple as asking who the reds are. Lucifer used red as his banner in the pre-mortal world. The Marxist followers of our day are likewise known as Red communists or socialists” (Anderson, The Book of Revelation Today, 22).

The communist conspiracy has taken to itself the color of red. It is the Red Menace. The Reds are the ones who have declared eternal war against humanity. The Illuminati-Jacobins – from whence sprang communism – hoisted the red flag of revolution over France. Red is the color of world revolution. Red is the color of communism. Red is the color of the beast. And red is the color of the Dragon.

Furthermore, the communist system is much more than a political system. It is an all-encompassing worldview and a counterfeit religion. Elder Bruce R. McConkie, a competent religious authority, described communism thus:

“Basically and chiefly, communism is a form of false religion; it is one of the major divisions of the church of the devil. It denies God and Christ; belittles Christianity; runs counter to the moral and ethical standards of religion and decency; denies men their agency; wrenches from them their inalienable rights; and swallows the individual and his wellbeing up in the formless mass of the state” (McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 151).

Another time, he explained:

“Communism is in reality a form of religion in which men deny the God of the Bible and worship the gods of compulsion and power and war” (McConkie, A New Witness for the Articles of Faith, 54).

The great J. Edgar Hoover also said:

“Communism is more than an economic, political, social, or philosophical doctrine. It is a way of life; a false, materialistic “religion.” It would strip man of his belief in God, his heritage of freedom, his trust in love, justice, and mercy. Under communism, all would become, as so many already have, twentieth-century slaves” (Hoover, Masters of Deceit, Foreword, vi).

In these descriptions, we see the echo of John who saw people worshiping the beast. Communism displaces God and sets itself up as man’s deity – and demands to be worshiped. It is a false idol. It is organized paganism. Communism centralizes all power in the hands of the ruling Elite, who in turn serve Satan. The state, controlled by Satan through his initiated followers, becomes the people’s object of worship and behaves like a cruel god in dispensing judgment, controlling life and death, dictating how people earn money, and dominating every aspect of life.

Henry Makow spoke of the “New World Order” and how it is inseparably intertwined with the Satanic communist philosophy. He wrote:

“The purpose of the New World Order is the same as Communism. The Illuminati created Communism as a means to flout God’s will and enslave mankind. Karl Marx was hired to sell totalitarian rule (“the dictatorship of the proletariat”) by pretending to espouse equality. He was a Satanist as were Trotsky, Lenin and Stalin. . . .

“The Luciferians portray their rebellion against God and nature as progress and freedom. This permissiveness refers only to tearing down the Divine order. In the initiation into the Seventh degree of Satanism, the adept swears, “Nothing is true and everything is permitted.” In the Communist Manifesto, Marx said all religion and morals will be abolished and everything permitted.

“The religion of modern western society, secular humanism, is a front for Illuminism (Lucifer worship). The purpose of Illuminism is to divorce humanity from the Divine Purpose and enshrine Lucifer (i.e. the Illuminati) in God’s place. Under the guise of a humanist utopia, they are constructing an Orwellian hell – the New World Order, a.k.a. globalism.

“The goal of globalism is the same as Communism. The world’s elite masks its Luciferianism in new age paganism and Gaia worship. The Lucifer Trust runs the only chapel at the United Nations and the only statue in the UN building is the pagan god Zeus” (Makow, Illuminati: The Cult that Hijacked the World, 66-67).

Now that we have reasonably established that the scarlet beast is the worldwide Satanic communist system, we come to the question of the mark of the beast. What is the mark of this communistic beast? The prevailing view seems to be that the “mark” is a literal identification or tracking marker forcibly given to people, such as an RFID microchip implanted in the hand or a tattoo printed on the head. I diverge from this opinion.

A study manual printed by my Church does not give an official opinion on what the mark of the beast is, but it provides one possibility that I feel is very close to the truth. Recall that the beast’s “mark” is taken in the hand or forehead. The manual notes: “This may symbolize that the wicked show by their actions (hands) and beliefs (heads) that they do the will of the beast and accept his ideology” (New Testament Student Manual, “Revelation 12-16,” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2014). It is my feeling that this is a correct interpretation and that the mark of the beast is figurative rather than literal.

Recall that John says people will worship the beast and the Dragon who empowers it. That is, they will worship the communistic system and, by default, Satan who established it. People who go along with the communist ideology, whether they recognize it as such or not, are figuratively marking themselves as enemies of God and His great Plan of Freedom. This Satanic communist ideology includes belief in all forms of socialism and welfare-statism, Darwinian evolution, humanism, atheism, New Age spiritualism, reincarnation, homosexuality, sexual immorality, feminism, abortion, no-fault divorce, drug use, radical environmentalism, ad infinitum. When we realize that all of these ideas and practices are upheld and subsidized by the Satanic communist conspiracy, and that most people believe or do at least some of them, it becomes apparent that most of the world has already marked themselves as followers of the beast system.

Thus, the beast system is spread primarily through indoctrination and conditioning. Public schools and the Marxist media are the chief tools of socialist indoctrination. Generations of unsuspecting people have been initiated into the beast system’s beliefs through public schooling, and their false beliefs are daily fortified by the controlled media. It is a diabolically ingenious system of social control – the type of system that could have only been invented and coordinated on a global scale by a supremely malevolent being and a devoted cadre of co-conspirators.

In the degraded age in which we live, it is not necessary to forcibly microchip a person in order to control him. Yes, thousands of people are now voluntarily lining up to be microchipped. And the risks posed by such a practice are high. However, there are much simpler ways to control people. Public indoctrination has been noted, but there are at least two other methods I wish to discuss.

Yesterday, June 5, 2019, we witnessed an example of how the beast system currently curtails and controls a person’s right to buy and sell. I refer to YouTube’s demonetization of Steven Crowder’s YouTube channel. Steven Crowder is a highly popular conservative YouTuber with nearly four million subscribers on his channel. He hosts the show Louder with Crowder. Yesterday, YouTube demonetized Crowder’s channel. Why? Crowder was demonetized because he has said many things that are politically incorrect and that rub the Establishment the wrong way. In particular, he has been labeled “homophobic.” It is just the latest example of political correctness at work.

Anyone who follows my writings knows that political correctness is a communist invention imported from Soviet Russia. It is a means of thought control and one of the greatest threats to free speech. To be politically correct is to toe the communist line – or, to toe the beast’s line. To be labeled politically incorrect, one must simply dissent from and openly oppose the communist ideology. Those who oppose the communist conspiracy’s efforts to turn the world into a GULAG must be prepared to face criticism and persecution.

Under the aegis of political correctness, the powers-that-be have begun restricting certain people’s ability to carry on their careers and earn a living. They have directly attacked the pocketbooks of activists, labeled “extremists,” with whom they disagree. For example, they file lawsuits against Christians who exercise their right to not make cakes for homosexuals, effectively shutting down their businesses. They block people from accessing social media platforms and having an equal chance to reach an audience and promote products. They revoke licenses and kick people off the air, closing down their avenues for self-promotion. They ban authors’ books, or prevent them from reaching major distributors, in a kind of digital book burning. They restrict travel rights in some situations, such as when Britain banned Michael Savage. They even go after the bank accounts of businesses and high profile figures, causing their businesses to collapse.

Crowder is just the latest in a long line of blacklisted figures that includes Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, Jordan Peterson, Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopolous, MS King, David Irving, etc. At the present time, yours truly is currently banned for thirty more days from Facebook. Alex Jones is perhaps the most famous person on the list. Alex Jones of Infowars fame has been permanently banned from Facebook and Twitter, had his YouTube accounts suspended, been removed from the Apple iTunes app store, been deleted on Spotify, and so forth. Google also restricts search results to filter out as many of Infowars’ stories as possible. Jones’ ability to reach an audience and, thus, earn a living and promote his message, has been severely compromised by the Marxist Establishment. Anyone who speaks out against the tide of cultural Marxism, political insanity, and Satanism sweeping the globe is a target for persecution. And it will only get worse.

Another very similar method of social control has been introduced by the Red Chinese. It is known as the social credit system. The Chinese communist government now rates its subjects, and businesses, on their level of obedience to communist dictates. They are each given a social credit rating. Their social credit score determines whether they can use public transport, buy land, have access to certain business markets, etc. Many millions of Chinese subjects have already been banned from air and train travel based on their low social credit scores. This diabolical system effectively prevents people from “buying and selling” unless they kowtow to the communist state.

What’s worse, some in the United States are beginning to call for a social credit system based on China’s model. For instance, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang supports the system. Support will only grow as society plunges deeper into depravity and as more and more people become enamored by the false allure of socialist freebies.

Whether or not an official social credit system ever reaches our shores, an informal system is already taking shape. Tech oligarchs in United States and throughout the West are beginning to informally do what Red China is formally doing. Media platforms essentially rank their users and punish them for failure to comply with their political and cultural ideas. Just as Chinese are prevented from traveling, Americans are prevented from speaking. Once we lose the right to speak out, other rights will quickly succumb.

Red China is actively exporting its system of mass surveillance and repression to nations as diverse as Australia and Panama. It is foreseeable that the entire world will be blanketed with a similar system of top-down control as the world continues to move everything online and governments keep making excuses for interfering in internet privacy. In our digital age, we are in grave danger of losing our Liberty and being forced to take the mark of the beast. At the very least, those of us who oppose the Dragon’s system and refuse to bow down and worship the beast will be marginalized and discredited so severely that we will become second-class subjects.

It is important that Christians, and all people, wake up to the awful reality facing them. We are opposed by the greatest, most well-coordinated, most widespread system of tyranny the world has ever seen. Paganism is organized against us. An international network of Marxist Satanists is actively trying to enslave us. Gradually, mankind is being coerced or seduced into taking the mark of the beast. They are being led to believe what the beast says and follow in his footsteps of perversion and immorality. Humanity is being initiated into a Satanic world order without even realizing it.

While fear of a political world order is justified, we must realize that a political world order is a means to a more frightening end. The end sought for is an occult world order. As the world embraces Wicca (the fastest-growing religion in America and Britain), pagan spirituality, and Eastern mysticism, the beast grows in power and the Dragon laughs. We are in a war of the most serious sort and most people do not even realize it.

Decades ago, the honorable Ezra Taft Benson warned:

“Today we are at war. It is not enough to be against communism. We must shed our complacency and aggressively meet this challenge. . . .

“There can be no compromise with the communists. They are at war with us – with the entire cause of freedom, and the sooner every American faces this hard fact, the stronger our position will be. It is a real war. The lines are tightly drawn. The war is more insidious, more devious, more devastating, and more satanical than any war in our history. Moral principles, once universally recognized are ignored. International law once respected is thrown to the wind.

“The socialist-communist philosophy is devastatingly evil – destructive of all that is good, uplifting and beautiful. It strikes at the very foundation of all we hold dear” (Benson, “We Must Become Alerted and Informed,” speech, December 13, 1963).

It is time to wake up. It is time to arise. It is time to fight back and refuse to take the beast’s mark. Yes, it is easier to be complacent. It is easier to be quiet. It is easier to not rock the boat. However, Liberty is more important than a good social credit score. Freedom is more important than a monetized YouTube channel. And doing what is right no matter the consequences is more vital than anything. Does not rocking the boat really matter if in the end you lose your soul by supporting the beast system? Lose your soul you will if you support the ideology of the beast.

J. Edgar Hoover implored:

“Communism can exist only where it is protected and hidden. The spotlight of public exposure is the most effective means we have to use in destroying the communist conspiracy. Drag that conspiracy into the light! Tear it apart. Reveal the flaws in its philosophy. Keep the pressure on it. Force it into retreat” (Hoover, The Lion, October, 1957, in Newquist, ed., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, 251).

We must use what Liberty we have remaining to drag Satanic communism into the light and tear it apart. We must expose the enemy. We must not flinch as the beast lashes out against us and as the Dragon spews fire and hate in our direction. We can stand firmly against this global monstrosity if we remember how John says the story ends. He triumphantly prophesied:

“These [kings] have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them; for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful” (Revelation 17:13-14).

In cannibalistic fashion, the beast will turn against the woman who rides it and will devour her. We are told:

“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Revelation 17:16).

When the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, overcomes the Dragon and his vicious Red beast, the followers of Christ who remained faithful will cheer and proclaim: “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen” (Revelation 18:2). Yes, Babylon will fall. Satan will be bound. And Satanic communism will be exposed, torn apart, and defeated. The only question remaining is who will be on the Lord’s side and who will succumb to Satan and unite with the beast.

If you seek to avoid taking the mark of the beast, learn of the communist conspiracy and forsake all the points of its false and Devilish philosophy. Cultivate your faith in the Redeemer Jesus Christ. Defend your Faith, Family, and Freedom. Cling to the true principles of Liberty, the U.S. Constitution, and your God-given rights. Exercise your right to speak out against the beast system that is taking over and infecting the world. Speak out, stand up, and try to save your country. In so doing, you might save your country; but you will certainly save your soul.

Attacks on Law Enforcement Are Attacks on America. The Democrat Party has morphed into the Deathocrat Party.

America has faced massive demonstrations and riots in the wake of the incomprehensible death of George Floyd allegedly Minnesota Police Officer Derek Chauvin and other members of that city’s police department.

No one has attempted to defend Chauvin’s actions.

Yet the Radical Left and the mainstream media have seized on Floyd’s death to discredit law enforcement and spurred high-profile leaders of the Democratic Party, to “Defund the police” and erase the “Thin Blue Line.”

In point of fact, the Minneapolis City Council has voted to completely defund and dismantle that city’s beleaguered police department.  Final action on this insane proposal is pending.

In New York City, the NYPD’s highly effective Anti-Crime Units have been disbanded and Mayor de Blasio has stated he will reduce the NYPD funding by one billion dollars even as, on June 22, 2020 NBC News reported, Weekly NYC Shootings Soar 358% Over Last Year, Data Shows.

Many years ago, as an INS agent, I worked closely with the NYPD and its Anti-Crime Units and can personally attest to how effective that unit was.

Incredibly, the same Democrats who attacked President Trump when he sought to defund “Sanctuary Cities” for not cooperating with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) arguing that defunding police would cost innocent people their lives are now, themselves, seeking to defund police departments.

The most dangerous four word statement a law enforcement officer can make is, “You are under arrest.”  No one knows how a suspect may react to being taken into custody.  I speak from my 30 yers of experience with the former INS.  While many individuals may go quietly others may react with the fight or flight response.

On June 25, 2020 House Democrats passed a bill to reform police that included a provision that would strip police officers of protection against being personally sued for their actions.

Currently law enforcement officers may be sued if it can be demonstrated that they acted outside of their scope of authority.  This bill would leave law enforcement officers personally vulnerable under all circumstances.

Should such a bill become law, law enforcement officers would have to be foolish to arrest anyone or take any official action.

There is a Yiddish expression that “When the fish goes bad it smells from the head.”  If any group should be vulnerable to lawsuits, it should be the politicians who create dangerous sanctuary policies as I noted in my article, Politicians Must Face Consequences For Crimes They Enable.

The vast majority of law enforcement officers are professional and fair and decent guardians of peace and safety.  The actions of a very small minority of bad cops is being exploited by the Radical Left to attack law enforcement in general.

As unhinged as the demand to defund police is, we must remember that the Democrats launched their first attack on law enforcement by vilifying our nation’s immigration laws and the federal agents who are responsible for enforcing those laws.  In a very real sense, the Border Patrol and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents were the “canaries in the coal mine.”

Under so-called “Sanctuary” policies alien criminals have been shielded from detection by ICE and other federal agents who are charged with enforcing our nation’s immigration laws- often with catastrophic deadly consequences.

Consider my recent article, New York State Blocks ICE and Border Patrol Access to DMV Database in which I focused on additional dangerous policies engaged in by New York’s governor Cuomo to undermine immigration law enforcement.

Many have called for finding ways to de-escalate the encounters between police and the public.  Certainly this is a worthwhile objective.  However, when the media and politicians warn black men that police officers are seeking to kill them, the false fear that this creates may well cause people to not comply with law enforcement causing greater likelihood that interactions between the police and the public may end badly.

Calls for “de-militarizing police” may be well-intentioned but are wrong-headed.  Certainly police officers should not routinely patrol neighborhoods with kevlar helmets and submachine guns- but heavy weapons and other tactical resources need to be maintained in reserve to be readily available for situations involving terrorists or other heavily armed criminals.

The calls for defunding police have been predicted on a relatively few situations involving a tiny percentage of our valiant police officers.  Let me be clear- the loss of even one life is a tragedy.

However, if the sole justification for defunding police and vilifying the hundreds of thousands of men and women who form the “thin blue line” and save innumerable lives each year, is because an extremely small number of people have lost their lives to police actions, then by that fatally flawed reasoning, perhaps hospitals should be defunded.

Consider that on February 22, 2018 CNBC posted an important report, The third-leading cause of death in US most doctors don’t want you to know about.

That report began with these two bullet points:

KEY POINTS

A recent Johns Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers to be as high as 440,000.

Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

Consider that when medical professionals err their patients may suffer grievous and life=altering injuries or die.  The life and/or physical wellbeing  of the medical professional who errs, however, is not on the line.

When law enforcement officers err, they may pay for their mistakes with their own lives or the lives of their colleagues.

There are no “do-overs!”

Of course I am not advocating for hospitals to be defunded- but certainly neither should police departments be defunded.

The majority of those who fall victim to violence, including young children are members of the minority communities, just as the majority of those who fall victim to the crimes and violence of transnational gangs are members of the various ethnic immigrant communities.

The Radical Left and their patrons in the Democratic Party don’t care about those innocent lives, they simply seek anarchy as a means of gaining political power.

If I had a wish list, I would love to see the development of additional effective non-lethal means of quickly subduing violent suspects during an arrest.

More training and additional resources for police- not fewer, could be effective.

Police departments should have to meet common training requirements to make certain that minimum common standards are met.

Critical elements contained in the evaluations of police officers should be reviewed.  Police officers who seek to advance their careers see in their evaluations their “marching orders” that they must follow in order to get good evaluations.  If, for example, quotas for arrests are established as critical elements, some police officers may act aggressively to make more arrests to satisfy this requirement.

Police departments should not be used to generate revenue for their jurisdictions.  Revenue generated by the issuance of parking tickets and other such administrative actions can create hostility between police officers and the communities that they serve.

Police departments might benefit by enabling officers who “burn out” to take an early retirement with an appropriately reduced pension after five or more years.  Many police officers suffer from PTSD.  This is evidenced by the high number of police officers who commit suicide.

To this point, on January 2, 2020 ABC News reported: Record number of US police officers died by suicide in 2019, advocacy group says The figure rose to 228 from 172 in 2018.

Those who enlist in our armed forces are able to leave after a few years, having served our nation, so that they could then move on to other careers.  Why not provide a similar option for police officers?

My list is not all-inclusive but could serve as “food for thought.”

However, the number one issue is clear- any politician who seeks to defund or undermine the police must be voted out of office.  Elections must have consequences!

Biden’s Qatar-Funded Foreign Policy Boss Called for Anti-Israel DNC Platform

Jewish Democrats are working hard to convince American Jews that Biden will be friendly to Israel, but his latest move once again sends a very different message.

The Biden campaign is busy putting together its transition team and Avril Haines, Obama’s deputy CIA director, will head foreign policy and national security. Putting a former deputy CIA director in charge of foreign policy would be an odd choice, but Haines was already an inappropriate pick at the CIA.

Haines was an Obama legal adviser who was brought in to replace Michael Morell who took the fall for the Benghazi talking points. Bringing in Haines to serve under Brennan was a blatant attempt at embedding an Obama loyalist near the top of the CIA. And Haines has stayed loyal to her former boss.

In May, Haines joined other Obama staffers in signing on to a letter by the J Street anti-Israel lobby which complained that previous DNC platforms had been “silent on the rights of Palestinians, on Israeli actions that undermine those rights and the prospects for a two-state solution.”

That isn’t true, but the J Street letter nevertheless urged the DNC platform to be more critical of the Jewish State.

Haines’ role taking point on foreign policy for Biden signals that the DNC platform and, more importantly, his administration, will take an anti-Israel direction. And that’s not surprising.

Currently, Avril Haines heads up Columbia World Projects. A big part of the university’s internationalization effort is the Obama Foundation Scholars initiative. Being a Foundation Scholar requires “a proven commitment to service and leadership within a community, region or country outside the United States” and, it ought to go without saying, the right set of political agendas.

The Obama “Scholars” at Columbia World Projects include Mor Efrat, the head of the Occupied Palestinian Territories Department for PHR-I. Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-I), despite its name, isn’t really about medicine, it’s an anti-Israel organization whose founder promotes BDS and which seeks to try Israeli soldiers for war crimes. PHR-I’s founder had urged a move to “integrate BDS in every struggle for justice and human rights by adopting wide, context-sensitive and sustainable boycotts of Israeli products, companies, academic and cultural institutions, and sports groups.”

This is the relationship that the Obama Foundation and Columbia World Projects under Haines have toward Israel.

Funding for Columbia World Projects comes from a variety of donors, including a Saudi businessman, a Lebanese billionaire who is the brother of a former prime minister, the daughter of a Turkish media tycoon, a Chilean businessman, and the billionaire head of a major Hong Kong real estate company.

Much like the Clinton Foundation, this raises serious questions about Haines’ conflicts.

An ex-CIA deputy director went to work for a Columbia project closely entwined with the Obama Foundation which received funding from foreign donors and will now head foreign policy for Biden.

Why bring in a former legal advisor to do all this? Haines isn’t qualified as a foreign policy expert, but she knows the limits of the law. Bringing her in is a way of handling dubious legal matters, whether it was the entanglement of the CIA under Brennan with Obamagate and then serving as Legal Adviser to the National Security Council, or the conflicts of interest from the Obama Foundation and Biden 2020.

But it also sends a clear message that Biden is going to build on Obama’s anti-Israel foreign policy.

Even while at Columbia, Haines continued her political work as the co-chair of Foreign Policy for Foreign Policy for America. The board of Foreign Policy for America includes Jeremy Ben Ami, the head of J Street, while the Advisory Board includes Joseph Cirincione, the head of Ploughshares, a key Iran nuclear legalization pressure group, alongside Haines, and Rob Malley, the Obama adviser initially forced out for his Hamas contacts, who now heads Soros’ International Crisis Group. Malley is also an advisor at Columbia.

Avril Haines is also a Nonresident Senior Fellow at Brookings, which is heavily funded by Qatar. The wealthy tyranny is closely entangled with a variety of Muslim Brotherhood groups, including Hamas.

Haines is not a foreign policy or national security expert. Putting her in the pole position really means that the same foreign policy people who ran things under Obama are the ones who are really in charge.

And that should surprise no one.

Jewish Democrats had a choice between an anti-Israel legacy candidate and a rabidly anti-Israel candidate, but the choice between Biden and Bernie was just a game of good cop and bad cop. The differences between Rob Malley and Cornel West, or Ben Rhodes and Rep. Ilhan Omar are matters of style, not substance. Bernie’s proxies are determined to vent their hate publicly, while Obama’s people play a more careful game, shifting America away from Israel through a series of staged confrontations.

Bernie’s open antagonism toward Israel allowed Biden to appear friendly toward the Jewish State.

Haines’ appointment makes it very clear that Biden’s foreign policy will consist of the same corrupt entanglements with Islamist regimes and attacks on Israel. And pro-Israel Democrats are fooling themselves if they think otherwise. And it’s not just foreign policy where Biden is playing that game.

Biden’s transition team is being drawn from the staffs of some of the most radical Democrat elected officials, including Julie Siegel, Warren’s senior counsel, and Gautam Raghavan, Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s chief of staff. Raghavan had already become infamous for declaring, “I want to be careful that we don’t say there is a kind of balance between equality and religious freedom.”

The Biden campaign has always going to be a trojan horse for radicals. And as the titular candidate declines, it will become easier for the radicals pulling his strings to maintain control over the campaign.

And while they would like to win, their short-term goal is to bend the DNC platform further leftward.

Even as Democrats try to sell pro-Israel Jews on Biden, the campaign has already sold them out. The Biden campaign’s position on Israel will be that of J Street. Its point woman on foreign policy signed a J Street letter calling for the platform to criticize Israel and heads an organization backing an anti-Israel activist.

While Biden is happy to take anyone’s money, the only point of view he’ll be listening to on Israel will be coming from the anti-Israel lobby.
