Where I Come From We Judge People by the Content of Their Characters

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Character: The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.

After having served in the U.S. Army for 23-years I have learned to judge individuals by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin.

I served in a military where men of all colors swore an oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution. Those with whom I served, and all those who have served honorably, are my brothers for he who sheds his blood with me is forever my brother.

As an officer, and commander of multiple units, I was responsible to judge the characters of those who served under me. I had the authority, under Article 15 of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice, to be the judge, jury and punisher of those soldiers who broke military laws and regulations. Just as I was subject to the same codes, laws and regulations.

Having served in combat I know about the content of others, and my own, characters. There is nothing like the heat of battle to bring out both the best and worst in men, and now women, in our military.

Understanding the character of individuals is a fundamental key to effective leadership.

Sadly today, character has taken a backseat to the color of one’s skin.

Today:

  • If you are white you are automatically labeled a racist.
  • If you are black you are automatically given a free pass on the content of your character.
  • If you are neither white or black, you are considered to be irrelevant or marginalized.

In a column titled “The Vague Grounds of ‘Systemic’ Racism” David Carlin asks:

Is “systemic racism” real?  Or is it an abuse of language, stretching the meaning of the word “racism” beyond its legitimate bounds?

The Oxford English Dictionary‘s first recorded utterance of the word racism was by a man named Richard Henry Pratt in 1902. Pratt was railing against the evils of racial segregation.

Segregating any class or race of people apart from the rest of the people kills the progress of the segregated people or makes their growth very slow. Association of races and classes is necessary to destroy racism and classism.

Racism has become a construct that has been turned into an effect method used to create division both in America and globally.

The goal isn’t to unite but to divide.

It is an easily used word to win an argument with someone whom you disagree with. If you want to shut a white, black, Hispanic, oriental or American Indian down then just call them a “racist.”

Racism is the ultimate political club.

When we judge people by what they do, by their character, then we are judging outcomes, not the color of one’s skin. Do good, do well and you are contributing to yourself, your family, your community, your state and the nation.

Do badly and you harm yourself.

You see, character has a moral basis. It is a religious construct.

1 Corinthians 15:33 warns,

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

Character is a choice between doing good or doing evil.

Without character what are we but mere animals?

VIDEO: The Vortex — On a Mission From God

And we had better get to it.


TRANSCRIPT

We’re here to attend an annual conference by the Napa Institute and take the temperature — and if need be, help raise the temperature — on the topic of corruption in the hierarchy. The crowd that attends the Napa Institute is well-off, many of them very well-off. They are politically conservative certainly and socially polite.

It’s a Catholic country club crowd who love their Faith, as far as they have been schooled in it, depending on who they listen to. Of course, given the dominant dynamic at work, like all other human beings, they will listen to those who most appeal to their own psychologies and predispositions.

To be certain, the Blase Cupich contingent of prelates would not be welcome here, nor would they like to attend. The prelates who attend here instead have the reputation of being orthodox, mainly politically conservative, and are much easier to stomach because they too are socially polite and enjoy quiet interactions and so forth.

But there is where things can — and in many ways have — gone off the rails. Conservative personalities are very cautious, they don’t like rocking the boat, they are very slow to act and, when they do act, it is usually in a minimal way. This isn’t out of any malice or anything; it’s just their dispositions (like many of the wealthy attendees). Birds of a feather, as they say.

The problem in the Church these days, however — the complete crisis we are seeing unfold before our eyes in lightning speed — requires a different psychological approach. It requires a disposition to admit that past strategies and approaches have been too polite, too optimistic and have failed.

That’s not something that wealthy, conservative people like to face. There is a certain level of positive self-image that accompanies material wealth and admitting an unpleasant reality doesn’t fit too well with that mindset. But that mindset and its concurrent failing strategy need to be jettisoned pronto if there is any hope of saving the Church in the United States.

First, the wealthy backers and patrons of many orthodox bishops must come to realize that most of these men have, in their own way, actually contributed to the crisis in the Church. They have come very late to the game — they had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the light of complete revelation that many of their “brother” bishops are actually wicked and have been actively engaged in taking over the Church and repurposing it into a globalist tool.

Many of the good bishops have, perhaps unwittingly, even gone along with this by not confronting loudly and clearly the false narratives of systemic racism, manmade climate change and illegal immigration. These are all communist talking points that wicked bishops have baptized (so to speak) and made out to sound somehow, in an intellectually tortured kind of way, Catholic.

They are not even remotely Catholic. However, even more alarming is that what passes as justice for society, which it is not, is promoted by not just bishops who are political Marxists, but who are actually morally degenerate and doctrinally deficient.

The wealthy crowd here at Napa just doesn’t want to hear that: It’s too much “boat-rocking.” Same with their allied orthodox bishops. It’s too scandalous for their ears (not to mention too threatening to their careers) to go down this path. So evil men in the hierarchy get a pass, capitalizing on the psychological dispositions of a very conservative crowd who simply do not want to face the music on all this theological and moral depravity among a certain subset of the episcopate.

This is precisely where the “orthodox” bishops, trapped in their own psychological and career dynamic, have failed miserably. Not only have they failed to openly, loudly and publicly challenge this evil, they have also failed to alert their wealthy benefactors, many of whom are here in Napa.

Money, by the millions, tens of millions, needs to be poured into efforts to root out these wicked prelates, expose them and take control of the narrative. When the news broke earlier this week that the most senior cleric in the United States who is not a bishop, USCCB general secretary Msgr. Jeffrey Burrill, is actually leading a double life of active homosexuality — in and out of gay bathhouses, homosexual hookups and all of it through a phone app he was on every day — people were shocked, and it blew up all over social media.

But why would people be shocked? Church Militant has been saying this same thing for over 10 years, earning the scorn of the gay clergy and the contempt of the polite-society crowd of Catholics, where such “distractions” aren’t discussed among the elites.

“Sure, people sin, but we need to move on” is the response from the well-heeled crowd. That is beyond belief that such an attitude would dominate the response of people who might be actually able to do something about it. Bad clergy need to be exposed. That costs money. Private eyes are not cheap.

Data mining is also not cheap. Round-the-clock surveillance, flying people around who are in the know and need to deliver documents personally — every bit of this is costly.

Yes, it’s distasteful, but nowhere near as much as looking into the wet eyes of an abuse victim molested by these gay men in miters and collars, nowhere near as much as listening to the families of young men who killed themselves. Talk to the good priests who have been ground up under the wheels of this lavender mafia choking the life out of the Church right now.

Sit down with the would-be seminarians who have been driven out because the gay formation team (from whom the bishops look the other way) has its say in who gets in and who doesn’t. What about the countless families — mothers and grandmothers, dads — who mourn constantly that their children have left the Faith because they were never instructed properly after all those years of tuition at Catholic schools.

The Church is in what is perhaps Her worst crisis ever, a massive disbelief by both clergy and laity. And no amount of beautiful scenery and pleasant company, cigars and good food can erase that reality. So Church Militant has come to Napa to see if the events of the past three years as well as those which keep happening have red-pilled any of the crowd which is generally resistant to being red-pilled.

We’re here, as we said, to take the temperature as well as raise it if need be. Wealth provides comfort, and comfort can prevent seeing plainly what is right in front of your eyes. The Church is not loved by hobnobbing with bishops. The Faith is not restored by a somber chat over a fine martini.

The Church is aided by rolling up your sleeves and getting in the fight, as nasty and dirty as it may be. The sodomite stranglehold on the Church must be broken. The corruption and quietism among the hierarchy must be banished. These are the driving forces why Church Militant is organizing the “Bishops: Enough Is Enough” prayer rally and protest in November in Baltimore.

Already, over a thousand people have signed up for the event in less than a week, with more coming in every day. Just click on the provided link to reserve your spot. We are all on a mission from God to stand up for the Church in this Her most desperate hour. God knew from all eternity this evil would arise at this point, and He created us for this moment.

The scandals in the Church don’t end — and are actually increasing — because the men and women who have the power and influence to end them don’t want to. They will not look evil in the eye and confront it, and, therefore, evil runs wild snatching souls and allowing the culture to be destroyed.

One day, perhaps soon, even a lot of money will not preserve otherwise faithful Catholics from the onslaught of Marxism in the Church. Time is quickly running out. The facade of “things are not that bad” is dissolving rapidly.

The Vague Grounds of ‘Systemic’ Racism

David Carlin: Is “systemic racism” real?  Or is it an abuse of language, stretching the meaning of the word “racism” beyond its legitimate bounds?


The issue of equality is almost always on the American national agenda. It was so from the day the Declaration of Independence was signed; it’s been so again and again in the years since 1776. And today it is prominent as Americans once again consider how to reduce inequalities between men and women, between native-born and immigrants, and above all between whites and blacks.

The idea that “all men are created equal” wasn’t discovered in Philadelphia in 1776. For a precise time and place for its beginning, think of Athens around 300 B.C.  For that was the approximate year when Zeno of Citium founded the Stoic school of philosophy in the city that was the philosophical capital of the Greek world.  Stoicism taught that all humans are equal in that they possess reason, a godlike attribute; and that reason is the best of all human things, better than wealth, health, strength, fame, good looks, etc.  In other words, that all humans are equal is what is most important.

This was a great theoretical breakthrough, though it didn’t have much immediate practical effect.  In the immediate aftermath of this great Stoic discovery, slaves were still slaves; rich people could still lord it over poor people; men could still push women around, etc.

The coming of Christianity was another great leap forward in the spread of the idea of universal human equality, for a number of reasons.

(1) Christianity was a universal religion, that is, a religion open to any and all humans, regardless of race or nationality or sex or wealth or status as slave or free.  This made it a very different thing from the many local religions found in the Roman world, including the Jewish religion.  It did however require initiation (Baptism), but this initiation was open to all who were willing to subscribe to the basic Christian articles of faith.

(2) Christianity regarded God as a universal God, as the Creator and Father of all human beings, regardless of race, nationality, etc.

(3) Christianity held that that Jesus Christ had suffered and died in atonement for the sins of all human beings. Centuries later John Calvin and his followers held that Jesus had not died for all, but only for some, namely the Elect.  But this notorious Calvinist doctrine is a deviation from ancient Christian orthodoxy.

(4) The great Christian sacrament of the Eucharist was open to all Christians without regard to wealth or power or sex or social status. It was no less open to a slave than to a king, no less open to a homeless person than to a multi-billionaire, no less open to a woman than to a man, no less open to a Greek than to a Jew.

(5) Christianity taught that the rules of morality are the same for all human beings; that all humans should abstain from murder, adultery, theft, lying, and so on; and that all humans should love their neighbors.

(6) Christianity taught that all humans have the potential for becoming saints; that is, for enjoying eternal happiness in the company of God.

(7) Of course sanctity, according to Christianity, is not possible without the assistance of the grace of God; but Christianity also taught that this saving grace is available to all humans.  Again, Calvinists disagreed; they held that God’s saving grace is available to the Elect only.

It was inevitable that this religious or spiritual equality would eventually, if slowly, spill over into the secular realm. By the 18th century, equality in the eyes of God had evolved into the idea that all humans are – or rather, should be– equal before the law. This meant that nobles would have to lose their legal privileges, and it also meant that slavery would have to be done away with.

But in a post-slavery world, further inequalities remained, most notably the great gap between rich and poor, a gap that grew greater as capitalist modernization proceeded.  In the United States, we have tried to justify this gap with the idea of “equality of opportunity.”  To the degree that all runners have an equal chance of winning in the great and universal American race for social and economic prizes, we consider the resulting inequalities to be fair.  At the same time, we as a society have a duty to reduce or eliminate whatever might prevent an equal start in this great race – we must, for instance, reduce discrimination based on sex, race, ethnicity, class, religion, etc.  And to a great extent, we have done this. Impartial surveys such as the one here show America and other developed countries to be among the least racist in the world.

In recent years, however, many loud and increasingly influential voices have shouted, “Equality of opportunity is not enough; besides, it is impossible to bring about.”  Instead, we are told, our national equality slogan should be, “Equality of outcome.”  This is especially true when it comes to comparisons between whites and blacks.  When blacks (on average) are worse off than whites (on average) in income, wealth, education, arrests, imprisonment, drug addiction, residential quality, life expectancy, and so on, these inequalities are the results (so we are told by these clamorous voices) of “systemic racism” or “structural racism.”

One of the great merits of Catholic colleges in the old days, when these colleges weren’t very good academically in comparison with their secular peers, was that they made students take a course in elementary logic, a course that usually placed a strong emphasis on the nature and importance of definition.  Catholic colleges nowadays, far more up-to-date than they were when I was young, don’t worry much about elementary logic courses.  Too bad.  For before Catholics with a strong social conscience rush into battle against the evils of systemic racism, they should pause for a moment to ask for a definition.

Is systemic racism a kind of racism?  Or is it (as I suspect) an abuse of language, stretching the meaning of the word “racism” beyond its legitimate bounds?

America – A Criminals Utopia!

“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.” – Harry S. Truman.


Law enforcement as we know it, in many large cities run by the leftist elitists and Defund the Police proponents like in Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, New York, Las Angeles etc. is in trouble. Forces are losing members at an extremely high rate, we are seeing that officers hands are tied by politicians and communist style organizations. Their police leaders are politicians and not law enforcement professionals. Many top cops are breaking their oaths daily. The average tax paying citizen apparently has no part in the decision making.

In Minneapolis the city council received a petition signed by only 20,000 out of 440,000 citizens asking for the disbandment of the police department to be replaced by a “community-focused safety initiative.”

What is that? Well, here it is! It will be a department that has some ‘licensed’ peace officers, mental health responders, substance abuse specialists, violence interrupters and violence prevention professionals! There you have it! A criminals utopia.

It will be called the Department of Public Safety!

So, as you are being raped, robbed, assaulted, murdered, car jacked, kidnapped or being victimized any way the criminals choose, you will have a regular smorgasbord of options as you dial 911! Imagine if you can. Hit 1 for a peace officer, hit 2 for a substance abuse expert, hit 3 for a mental health professional!! You get the picture!

This will be on the ballot in the next Nov 2nd Minneapolis general election. Bless them all. They are a lost population.

Then let’s look at other libtard leftist run major city. I know!! San Francisco in the incredible state of California! You know, the land of fruits and nuts!

Here we see daily pictures of shoplifters emboldened by the $950 limit to become a crime worthy of being even stopped. Loss prevention officers in stores stand by as thieves and looters walk in and brazenly walk out with huge bags filled with stolen swag to be met by ‘professional’ purchasers of stolen merchandise!! Very organized!

According to the National Retail Federation two of the top 5 cities with organized theft are in California, Los Angeles and San Francisco! They must be so proud to be in the top 5!!!

Store employees and store security staff are told to just let them come and go. Some have died trying to stop shoplifters, like Miguel Penaloza of Rite Aid who tried to stop a couple of thieves walking out with arm loads of beer! He was shot dead just for doing his job.

The result is stores are closing down or closing early. Target in San Francisco closes at 5:00pm in some locations and 6:00pm in others. Walgreens have been forced to shutter several locations. Everything worth over a few dollars is under lock and key. Try finding staff to help you!!

If these thieves need anything they just pop out to the local stores and take whatever they need or want. It’s easy. Nobody stops you. As one fine upstanding citizen, Cassie, an addiction and mother of 2, recently said, “If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it,” she said. “They ain’t out here arresting people for shoplifting and everyone knows it.”

What a country! Shop owners in San Diego tell stories of their inventory being stolen hour by hour, daily. There is evidence that people are crossing state lines to shoplift in certain counties and states, well equipped with lists and calculators to ensure they stop at the $950 limit. They will work in pairs. One will go in with a backpack or similar and fill it and go out to his/her buddy, unload the bag and go back in. Professional fences will be waiting at appointed places to buy the goods.

Police are unable to do anything. In California they are told not to make arrests for misdemeanors, hence the limit of $950 the thieves carefully adhere to. Little did those thieves know how much those silly math classes would help them!

Gallup Poll: Biden Hits Lowest Approval Rating of His Presidency

Joe Biden Says He Was On The Judiciary Committee “150 Years Ago.”


According to a new poll released by Gallup, decrepit President Joe Biden’s approval rating is now at the lowest point of his presidency.

The poll taken from July 6-21 shows that the fraudulently-elected Biden has a 50% approval rating, plunging six points from a 56% rating in June.

Unsurprisingly, the puppet of subversive radicals Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett received a near-unanimous 90% approval rating from his fellow Democrats, versus only 12% of Republicans (which begs the question: how is it possible that even one Republican could approve of the far-left Biden’s agenda so far?). Forty-eight percent of Independents approved of Biden’s term up to this point.

That Biden has numbers even this high is testament to the propaganda power of the mainstream media (which is in fact the state media) and other cultural influencers on the left. Because any clear-eyed, objective view of the Biden administration’s accomplishments so far would reveal only massive economic failure, unprecedented racial division among Americans, the complete collapse of our southern border, and international humiliation.

Biden has been more disastrous for the country in his first six months than Barack Obama was in his entire first term. And he’s just getting started.

Refusing to Condemn the Massive Nationwide Violence of Black Lives Matter & Antifa

Countless thousands of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa rioters spent the spring, summer, and fall of 2020 tearing apart scores of American cities and burning large swaths of those cities to the ground, purportedly in response to the May 25 death in Minneapolis of a black man named George Floyd following his physical altercation with a white police officer. Through these many months of mayhem, Biden chose not to condemn the rioters and looters for their violence. Indeed, he remained silent until August 26 — when it was becoming apparent that his silence was causing his performance in political polls to drop. But even Biden’s criticism of BLM and Antifa was tepid: “The needless violence won’t heal us,” he said.

VIDEO: ‘The Third Testament’ – The Historical Thriller Event That Pins Islamo-Nazism

IT IS A HIGH SPEED THRILLER THAT PIERRE REHOV IS OFFERING US ONCE AGAIN.

Reporter and director of documentaries on the Middle East conflicts, Rehov is also an expert in the psychopathology of suicide terrorism. “The Third Testament”, is his second novel in English after “Beyond Red Lines”

With this new thriller, the author once again takes us on a breathless adventure where reality often exceeds fiction. He also takes us on a journey from Washington to Pennsylvania, from Boston to Moscow, from East Germany to Banda Aceh and the stifling jungle of Sumatra.

The story begins in 1992, when agent Alexei Soloviev accidentally discovers in the KGB archives a secret esoteric will of Adolph Hitler, seized in his bunker by the Red Army after his suicide.

Thirty years later, unusual disturbances in Islamist circles linked to neo-Nazi organizations lead young intelligence analyst Melany Carson to infiltrate a supremacist group in Pennsylvania.

A terrifying and unexpected discovery leads her on a dangerous adventure with her new partner, young billionaire Jeff Cartright.

While Jeffrey and Melany try to find Alexei Soloviev, the only person who knows Hitler’s last wishes, a new Islamic springtime shakes Indonesia and its two hundred million inhabitants around one man, Habib Saragih, the mysterious leader of a revolutionary movement whose financial means seem to be unlimited.

The questions of the esoteric sources of Islamo-fascism, which we hear a lot about lately, are then raised. The novel takes us back to the 1930s to explore the historical facts that the author has gone to great lengths to find. We discover that Himmler, a fanatic of occult sciences, witchcraft and Tibetan Tantrism, had sent several expeditions to the country of the Dalai Lamas, with the official aim of finding the roots of the Aryan race. Under Rehov’s pen, another hypothesis opens up. Could it be that he and Hitler, both convinced that reincarnation exists, sought the key (and discovered it) in the sacred lands of Shambala? Would they have found an esoteric work attributed to the Buddha himself, which allows the emulators of the Dalai Lama to find the reincarnation of their leader?

Back to the present. Neo-Nazis seem to have taken control of several terrorist organizations in the world, notably in Indonesia, with the ambition to resurrect the Third Reich. Their rallying sign: 88, as in twice the eighth letter of our alphabet, i.e. the H, so HH in reference to Heil Hitler. But if Karma exists, who would Hitler have reincarnated into?

Beyond its thriller dimension, which makes it a real “page-turner”, a book that you can’t let go once opened, “The Third Testament” evokes this natural union between Nazism and Islamism around a breathtaking chase against a background of current events and historical facts. The construction of the book is of a very high level, the reading particularly limpid and rhythmic. Drop everything and hurry to acquire it. This novel is incredible, way beyond Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code”.

Exclusive Audio: Listen to January 6 Detainees Sing the National Anthem

Cruel and excessive. All those BLM/Antifa terrorists who looted, rioted and burned our cities are walking free and these patriots who were entrapped in Pelosi’s putsch are rotting in illegal incarceration.

AMID REPORTS OF JANUARY 6 DETAINEES BEING SUBJECT TO TORTUROUS INHUMANE ABUSE INCLUDING BEATINGS, SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, AND COVID-19 VACCINATION COERCION IN THE D.C. DETENTION CENTER, AUDIO RELEASED BY AMERICAN GREATNESS REVEALS THE PRISONERS SINGING THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER IN ORDER TO LIFT SPIRITS AND BOOST MORALE WHILE THEY AWAIT THEIR TRIALS.

Exclusive audio released by American Greatness reveals the January 6 political prisoners sing the National Anthem to lift their spirits up and boost morale as they await their trials scheduled for sometime next year. “Detainees include Americans not accused of committing any violent crimes. Current detainees are a few members of the Oath Keepers; the alleged ‘attackers’ of Officer Brian Sicknick, and nonviolent offenders such as Timothy Hale-Cusanelli. The defendants have been transported to a special portion of the D.C. prison system used to house those charged with offenses related to January 6. Most were held in solitary confinement conditions, only allowed one hour out of a single-man cell one hour a day, for months until restrictions were recently loosened somewhat,” reads the report by American Greatness Senior Contributor Julie Kelly.

Democratic Mayors Who Called To Defund The Police Spent MILLIONS On Own Security Details

Oh, the irony. No Democrat-criminal-media coverage, of course!

Democratic Mayors Who Called To Defund The Police Spent MILLIONS On Own Security Details

BY: Barnini Chakrabort | Washington Examiner | July 21, 2021 |

Democratic mayors in nearly two dozen major cities across the United States who have publicly called for defunding the police have received personal protection from a police detail at taxpayers’ expense.

An analysis of 25 major U.S. cities conducted by Forbes showed that in at least 20 of them, mayors and other city officials have said one thing publicly but have privately reaped the benefits from a dedicated police security presence.

Calls to defund the police coupled with taxpayer dollars spent to protect public officials only occurred in cities run by Democratic mayors, according to the report.

Baltimore, for example, slashed $22 million from its police budget in 2020 but didn’t have a problem spending $3.6 million for 14 officers to protect Mayor Brandon Scott, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.

Maryland’s largest city saw widespread protests against police in 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray and again in 2020 over the death of George Floyd. Gray, a 25-year-old black man, was arrested in April 2015 for possession of a “switchblade,” thrown into the back of a Baltimore Police Department van, and found unconscious 45 minutes later with his spinal cord nearly severed. He spent seven days in a coma.

Floyd, a black man, died after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. His death triggered coast-to-coast protests over police brutality and calls to defund the police.

The city of Chicago spent $17.3 million between 2015 and 2020 to guard “unnamed city officials,” according to information gathered through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Even though Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she was against defunding the police, records show that 400 police officer positions were cut last year while the cost of the security detail hit an all-time high of $3.4 million for 22 officers. The city spent $2.8 million for 17 officers in 2019; $2.8 million for 16 officers in 2018; $2.7 million for 20 police officers in 2017; and $2.9 million for 16 officers in 2016.

In San Francisco, officials made headlines for promising to divest $120 million from police over two years and move the money into health programs. However, the city spent $12.4 million between 2015 and 2020 to protect Democratic Mayor London Breed.

The cost of Breed’s security detail has increased over the years, with the city spending $2.6 million in 2020 compared to $417,489 in 2016.

San Diego city council members this year budgeted $2.6 million for 12 full-time officials to protect Mayor Todd Gloria, as well as city council members during meetings and for security at the city administration building. However, Gloria’s budget proposed a $4.3 million cut from the police overtime budget while spending $1 million to set up the Commission on Police Practices, a new oversight body to review and evaluate complaints brought by the public against police officers.

As crime spiked in New York, the city slashed $1 billion from its $6 billion police budget in 2021, reallocating $354 million to help curb homelessness and promote educational services. However, Mayor Bill de Blasio, his wife, and his son have had no problems traveling the country with an NYPD security detail.

Are Biden’s Handlers Making Room for Right-Wing ‘Terrorists’ at Guantanamo?

My latest in PJ Media:

The establishment media agrees that Biden’s handlers’ freeing of Taliban jihadi Abdul Latif Nasser from Guantanamo, where he had been held for nineteen years, was the first step toward taking care of more unfinished business from the Obama administration and finally closing the notorious prison camp. But is that really the plan? Or might Guantanamo be filled up with a new group of terrorists?

The signs aren’t hard to find. CNN reported Wednesday that “the Justice Department repeatedly has documented the emergence of what could be called small, right-wing extremist groups.” One of the examples offered in the report is that of Robert Morss, a Pennsylvania resident who was arrested in connection with the January 6 Reichstag Fire. According to CNN, when Morss was arrested, police “found in his car a notebook with a page titled, ‘Step by Step to Create Hometown Militia.’ Beneath it Morss allegedly scribbled bullet point reminders, fleshing out the idea of forming a violent cell – ‘bring assault rifle’ and ‘set up your kit’ — and notes on ‘formation.’”

Then there were Ian Rogers and Jarrod Copeland, who were “so devoted to former President Donald Trump and so angry about the 2020 election result, that they allegedly plotted to blow up the Democratic headquarters building in Sacramento. One commented over an encrypted messaging thread, where the two discussed planning, that he realized they would be perceived as domestic terrorists, and the second man had previously joined an anti-government militia group.”

Whether these three men actually did anything criminal, or planned to do so, is a matter for the courts to decide. But ominously, a prosecutor wrote about the Rogers/Copeland case that “all of the political and social conditions that motivated them to plan what they themselves described as a terrorist attack remain.”

What are those conditions? Raw Story gave a clue to the answer to that in a risibly hysterical piece Monday that began:

A very particular, cultish and dangerous brand of domestic terrorism has been honed, and we should call it what it is: Trumpist terrorism.

 We’ve rarely if ever experienced domestic terrorism organized not only in the service of an ideology — white supremacy — but in the name of one person, a cult figure for whom people will kill and die, devoted to his cause and taking perceived orders from him.

 But that is what is happening now.

There is more. Read the rest here.

Hamas-linked Associated Press Whitewashes Hamas’ Responsibility for Suffering of Gaza Children

In the aftermath of the bombing of the Associated Press offices in Gaza, which also housed Hamas, there were two possibilities regarding AP. One was that they really didn’t know Hamas was in the building, in which case they were the worst reporters on the planet. Or else AP knew Hamas was there, and was fine with it, which is in line with its general editorial tendency to whitewash jihad violence and demonize Israel. And here we go again.

Trauma apparent, Hamas hidden: AP’s portraits of Gaza kids

by Tamar Sternthal, JNS, July 22, 2021:

(July 22, 2021 / JNS) The Associated Press’ photo essay “War’s trauma apparent in portraits of Gazan children,” published on Wednesday, features the personal stories of a number of Gaza children traumatized by Hamas’s 11-day conflict with Israel in May. The essay is egregiously partisan and defamatory, and highly reminiscent of The New York Times’ “They Were Only Children” front-page item last month.

Like their colleagues at the TimesAP’s Aya Batrawy and Felipe Dana identify Israel as being virtually solely responsible for the children’s trauma, all but ignoring Hamas’s role in the tragedies: “Altogether, 66 children were killed in the fourth war on the Gaza Strip — most from precision-guided Israeli bombs, though in one incident Israel alleges a family was killed by Hamas rockets that fell short of their target.”

“Where when war erupts, there is no safe place,” the AP article states, providing no indication whatsoever that Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza fire at Israel from densely populated neighborhoods. Hamas also stores weaponry among civilians and houses its command offices in residential areas, a fact acknowledged by Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar.

Moreover, while Hamas has built hundreds of kilometers of well-fortified tunnels for its fighters, including under civilian homes, it has not provided any shelters for its civilian population. All of this information is highly relevant to a report on the lack of safe places for Gaza’s population, and yet AP omits it.

By citing “precision-guided Israeli bombs” while ignoring the Hamas sites that Israel was targeting when some of these children were killed, AP implies that Israel committed a heinous war crime: targeting children with precision bombs.

In addition, contrary to AP’s claim that “in one incident” Israel “alleges” a Hamas rocket was responsible for killing Gaza’s children, Israel has said that 680 misfired rockets launched by Gaza terrorists killed 10 children in at least twoseparate incidents, and has also pointed to additional incidents in which fatalities of minors likely were caused by misfired rockets. The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center detailed casualties inflicted on May 10 by misfired rockets hitting the Al-Omari Mosque in Jabalia and the al-Masri home in Beit Hanoun….

Like the Times story before it, the AP article also fails to acknowledge that some of the minors killed were members of terror organizations, such as 17-year-old Khaled al-Qanau, and Muhammad Suleiman, 15….

VIDEO: More Dead from COVID Vaccines Than from Virus Itself*

11,000 dead from Covid reported in VAERS with a 1% reporting rate. But there’s more troubling data. Call it shedding or calling transferring, it is happening in every state, in every city, in every community in the U.S. People who have NOT had the so-called vaccines for the Wuhan coronavirus are testing positive for elements of the shots in their bloodstreams.

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT? And what can we do to fight the government/big tech/mainstream media tag-team assault on facts and alt-narrative information about COVID and the jabs? Graham Ledger gets some answers from Jeff Barke, M.D. founding physician of America’s Frontline Doctors.

Obama’s Police State Dream Is Coming True

The U.S. Capitol Police have been authorized to open field offices in two states, Florida and California, ostensibly to investigate threats against members of Congress. A Capitol Police spokesperson said additional field offices will be opening, prompting fears of a massive federal law enforcement overreach: the nightmare scenario of a police state.

I predict the Capitol Police expansion is a move toward abolishing all state and local law enforcement agencies, and replacing them with a nationwide federal law enforcement presence. Why? Because according to Democrats, state and local police departments are racist institutions that keep the boot of white supremacy on the neck of black America.

If state and local police are abolished, we will be living in a de facto police state, where the only law enforcement personnel will be those who swear allegiance to the Democratic Party and its Marxist agenda.

The elimination of state and local police will lead to an ideological cleansing of what will be a totally politicized federal police force with a mission no different than that assigned to Mao’s Red Guards. Like all police states, a police state here in America will lead to ruthless repression of political dissenters. The same kind of repression is currently being implemented in every branch of the U.S. military, where woke generals and admirals are ramming the Marxist political construct known as critical race theory down the throat of every active service member, as well as cadets and midshipmen at America’s military academies.

The Democrat rallying cry “defund the police” is a carefully orchestrated ruse to lay the groundwork for the establishment of a full-blown police state. Biden is making it happen, but his strings are obviously being pulled by someone else. I believe his puppet master is former boss, Barack Obama.

When Obama left the White House in January 2017, he established a post-presidency political organization called Organizing For Action. OFA is allegedly non-partisan, but only a fool would believe an organization founded by the most ideologically-driven president in U.S. history has no partisan objectives. In a Feb. 2017 article titled “How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency,” The New York Post reported as follows:

When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.

In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.

He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.

That Obama would try to subvert Trump’s presidency by any means necessary was evident before he left office, when he gave a wink and a nod to high-level dirty cops at the DOJ, FBI and CIA to use the awesome powers of the Federal Government in an attempt to torpedo Trump’s presidential campaign through a fabricated Trump-Russia collusion narrative. When Obama left office on Januar. 20, 2017, dirty-cop holdovers from his administration saddled Trump’s presidency with a two and a half year special prosecutor investigation that came up empty. Of course it came up empty. It was a surreptitious political hatchet job from the very beginning.

Five days before he was first elected, Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” See a ten-second video of that vow here. Millions of Americans who enthusiastically elected him to the most powerful job in the world forgot to ask themselves, Transform it into what? America always needs improving, but is it such a sorry place that it must be fundamentally transformed? According to Obama, yes it is.

To fundamentally transform a nation means to bring about radical changes to its traditional values, principle and institutions. In the case of America, that means to upend its long-standing two-party constitutional system in favor of single-party authoritarian rule, i.e. a Police State, which is now in the process of being formed.

When George Floyd was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer, I believe Obama saw an opportunity to instigate a white hot racial crisis that would sweep his puppet into the White House. How could he foment such a crisis? By quietly instructing OFA’s 30,000 Marxist revolutionaries to incite four continuous months of pre-election race riots. As I wrote in The Blue State Conservative in May, Obama’s credentials as a race arsonist are well-established.

Obama almost completed his dream of fundamentally transforming America into a communist nation on his own. But with our constitutional democracy still intact when he left office, more dirty work was needed. When Hillary Clinton fumbled the ball inside the one and handed the presidency to Trump, the scheming former president sat by and smiled as senior law enforcement and intelligence agency holdovers from his administration tried every crooked trick in the book to drive his lawfully elected successor from office.

Some of what his puppet in the White House is currently doing:

  • Setting the stage to eliminate state and local law enforcement agencies
  • Giving a presidential green light to a nationwide presence for the Capitol Police
  • Denying due process to hundreds of imprisoned U.S. citizens accused of breaking the law on January 6th
  • Refusing to release 14,000 hours of Jan. 6 surveillance video that could undermine the government’s “insurrection” narrative
  • Initiating a dirty alliance with leftwing Silicon Valley to rigidly control what web content citizens are allowed to see

Our country’s first America-hating president is smiling once again, as the Police State he has long coveted is being set in motion.

Top Global Energy Agency Calls for Phasing Out of All Gas-Powered Cars, Coal-Fired Plants

Fossil fuel use is a double-edged sword. Climate alarmists fixate on one edge and completely disregard the other.


A report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) proposed a radical policy agenda last month:

  • Immediately end the approval of all new coal-fired power plants and oil and gas fields internationally.
  • Swiftly phase out all gasoline-powered vehicles.
  • Ban the sale of new oil and gas furnaces to heat buildings.

“That would very likely keep the average global temperature from increasing 1.5 Celsius above preindustrial levels — the threshold beyond which scientists say the Earth faces irreversible damage,” says a recent New York Times article that discusses the IEA’s report.

And those were just a few of the extreme measures that the world’s leading energy agency said would be required to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The Biden Administration’s “2030 Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Target” puts the United States in fairly close alignment with the IEA’s objectives. The White House’s target includes a carbon-pollution-free power sector by 2035 and a net-zero-emissions economy by 2050.

How radical is this agenda? Well, since the prices of some renewable energy sources have been falling rapidly relative to those of some fossil fuels, it is plausible that the global economy may shift somewhat away from fossil fuels on its own in the coming decades. But from the industrial revolution to the present day, fossil fuels have been absolutely central to global economic progress.

Enacting the IEA/Biden agenda would mean overturning the vast majority of our economy, roughly 84 percent of which still runs on fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, as opposed to other energy sources such as wind and solar, which are far less reliable and applicable to a much narrower range of industrial uses.

As Samantha Gross, director of the Energy Security and Climate Initiative, has written for the Brookings Institution, “The world today is unrecognizable from that of the early 19th century, before fossil fuels came into wide use. Human health and welfare have improved markedly, and the global population has increased from 1 billion in 1800 to almost 8 billion today. The fossil fuel energy system is the lifeblood of the modern economy.”

But despite the central role of fossil fuels in humanity’s material wellbeing, the IEA and the Biden Administration believe that averting the most devastating effects of climate change will require public regulatory policy that shifts the economy almost entirely toward alternative energy sources.

Many experts believe that anthropogenic climate change is already responsible for intensified storms, heatwaves, droughts, and vector-borne diseases. According to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change earlier this year, it is likely that anthropogenic climate change has been responsible for about a third of human heat deaths since 1991. Such are the “catastrophic effects of climate change” expected by the IEA to worsen substantially over the next few decades, unless global civilization brings its carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.

But is there any way in which such colossal regulatory measures are likely to backfire? And how bad could such unintended consequences be? Could they be so bad as to exacerbate, rather than alleviate, the most catastrophic effects of climate change on human wellbeing?

Reducing fossil fuel use may reduce the intensity of climate change, possibly including dangers such as intensified storms, droughts, and heat waves. But that’s not all it does. Using fewer fossil fuels also impacts how people are affected by those dangers: in other words, humanity’s level of “climate resilience.”

The exact definition of “climate resilience” is debated, but it typically includes adaptation to changing climate conditions, absorption of climate impact, and transformation of the environment using technological or scientific means. All of these resilience strategies are made possible by economic progress, including fossil fuel-led growth. With less access to abundant and reliable energy, civilization’s climate resilience would be substantially reduced.

The widespread availability of fossil fuels directly contributes trillions of dollars to the global economy each year, and indirectly contributes incalculably more by making countless other industries possible. This economic growth is continuously granting more and more communities access to better infrastructure, medicine, education, and other precious advantages against the dangers of an ever-changing environment. Fossil fuels, by allowing civilization to cheaply and reliably power its homes, vehicles, hospitals, factories, and other engines of human wellbeing, protect people from an ever-widening range of potential climate impacts.

The climate resilience side of the equation, despite being at least as significant as the climate danger side, is often ignored in the models of future climate impact. This is because, while it is difficult to model a changing climate, it is impossible to model the future of human ingenuity, which will be composed of decisions and insights that only the people of the future can possibly know.

So which edge of the climate sword is sharper? Has the damage caused by climate change so far outweighed humanity’s progress building climate resilience?

According to research from the University of Oxford economist Max Roser and the University of Edinburgh geoscientist Hannah Ritchie, absolute global deaths from natural disasters have been going down almost every year between 1901 and 2018, even while the global population has exploded from roughly 1.6 billion to roughly 7.7 billion during that period.

This overall reduction in deaths by natural disaster, which accounts for floods, extreme weather, extreme temperature, earthquakes, and droughts, is similar to the consistent reduction in deaths by disease in recent decades (COVID-19 obviously overturned these disease data in 2020, but not in a way that’s directly relevant to climate change, since it is only vector-borne diseases that are directly exacerbated by climate change).

The data—which show climate-related deaths have been falling even while fossil fuel use has intensified climate change—suggest that so far climate danger has been no match for climate resilience in the battle over human wellbeing.

The IEA, the Biden Administration, and others advocating for extreme near-term reductions in global fossil fuel use have one seldom-examined assumption at the foundation of their climate alarmism. This assumption is that despite climate resilience having consistently outpaced climate danger in the past, soon the tables will turn and climate danger will gain the upper hand.

It is widely believed that dangerous tipping points likely dwell in the future of environmental change. What is rarely factored in is that continued economic growth, facilitated in large part by fossil fuels, will likely continue to produce unpredictable technological and scientific breakthroughs, creating new forms of security and wellbeing, and at new scales.

The climate alarmists would have society sacrifice one of its most precious industries, and thus radically increase the price of electricityfoodhousing, and countless other critical assets without which the global poor would be at the mercy of starvation and homelessness. These economic changes might sound weatherable to those of us who can afford frequent meals out and subscriptions to Netflix, Disney+, and HBO Max all at the same time, but to the global poor, this is a matter of life and death.

As the Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman famously said, “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results. We all know a famous road that is paved with good intentions.” History suggests that extremist energy agendas like the IEA’s and the Biden administration’s would lead us down such a road, making millions of poor people more vulnerable to climate threats in the name of mitigating those threats.

“Islamic Police” In Athens City Centre Are TERRORIZING PEOPLE

Coming to a neighborhood near you as “Biden’s” jihad immigration accelerates.

“Islamic Police” in the centre of Athens are terrorising people

By Athens Bureau, Greek City Times, July 20, 2021:

The centre of Athens is at the mercy of gangs of migrants and the so-called “Islamic Police”, which forces people to observe Islamic rules.

The actions of a complex criminal organisation and the so-called “Moutawins”, also known as the Islamic Police, check that Islamic Sharia Law is observed and cause terror among thousands of peaceful refugees and immigrants living in Athens.

People trying to live their lives in peace are harassed by savage criminals and the fanatical Islamic Police, To Vima reported.

In the case of the “Islamic Police”, according to complaints that have come to light, extremists patrol the main hangout areas of migrants, terrorising and enforce religious laws on people outside of Greek law.

The self-appointed “religious police” do not hesitate to brutally beat men and women who do not follow, according to their own standards, the rules of Islam.

An incident of savage beating of an Iranian citizen was recorded last May. The perpetrators were foreigners who found the unfortunate woman in the area of ​​Agios Panteleimon and beat her badly.

According to police sources, the incident is said to be related to groups of foreigners who occasionally take to the streets to enforce Islamic rules.

“There are many more that are either hidden or characterised as robbery. But they have clear religious characteristics and they are definitely the so-called Moutawins,” a police official said.

Similar attacks were recorded in 2017-2018 when groups of immigrants from Bangladesh were organised and made relevant attacks.

The “Moutawins” had attacked a couple of their compatriots, tying a man and hitting a woman because he had not covered her face.

The Islamic police patrols are in Omonia, Vathi Square, Metaxourgio and Kypseli, and increased during the Ramadan period. The “Islamic Police” were looking for those who do not respect the holiday and beat or intimidate them.

Two Muslim women were beaten when they passed in front of a mosque during the days of Ramadan, while it is rumoured that a woman without a headscarf was beaten and insulted in a shop in the centre of Athens.

Although immigrant organisations do not confirm the incidents, fearing the consequences, what prevails in the centre is the “Moutawin.”

Their mission is to convert non-believers, discipline indifferent Muslims and teach them the rules they must follow in the Muslim community.

Afghans, Pakistanis and Bangladeshi nationals make up the majority of patrols, although incidents have dropped recently.

Of course, the “Islamic Police” is not a Greek phenomenon. Similar religious attacks have been reported in Germany, France and Italy.

And as if the fear of religious fanaticism were not enough, migrant shopkeepers are faced with another, more dangerous action.

Gangs are looting immigrant neighbourhoods shops, and even worse, some gangs steal the pay of most of their innocent compatriots.

The gangs find accommodation for the workers they exploit, stacking them in apartments with another 20 or 30 foreigners.

At the same time, they themselves “divide” the areas into “control zones”. In return, they allow a businessman to open a shop and close it themselves if he does not pay their ransom.

Greek police often patrol the centre of Athens, but are unable to control all illegal activities. Despite the arrests and extraditions of individuals, illegality lives and reigns.

Drugs, illegal gambling, blackmail and pimping are at the forefront.

Nigerians, Somalis, Moroccans, Afghanis and Algerians often clash over control of squares such as Victoria, Agios Panteleimon, Pedion tou Areos, Koliatsou and Kypseli.

In early July, a migrant fell dead on Satovriandou Street, stabbed by an opposing gang.

The savage conditions in the centre unfortunately exacerbates xenophobic syndromes, which is why migrant organisations are calling for the abscess to be broken and for them to live peacefully.

It is worth noting that migrant shopkeepers often intervene and avoid incidents. However, they themselves declare their inability to control the “twin threat”, the “Islamic Police” fanatics and the thugs who are raiding the areas where large groups of foreigners meet.
