Is A Nationwide Lockdown Imminent?

“It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.” – Epictetus

Foreword by Fred Brownbill. I have heard from multiple sources that the usurper in the WH is about to announce a national lockdown. The coming Delta lockdown is DESIGNED to invoke nationwide protests so they can be exploited as a backdrop for false flag event to blame “anti-vaxxers”

We have heard the crooked pervert in chief of New York, De Blasio, threaten just that. If we do not have the shot and the accompanying vaccine passport, you will not have access to any facility from gyms to restaurants and if that fails the loss of “freedom” that follows – ie lockdowns – will be the un vaxxed’s fault.

Within the next 12 days, multiple sources have told me, the pretender-in-chief, another pervert and definitely mentally challenged, Joe Biden, will announce a nationwide lockdown, fraudulently blaming the “delta” variant ( or by then the next one already named Lambda ) and “anti-vaxxers” for the overzealous and unconstitutional action. The lockdown will have no specific end date, and it is likely to be strongly resisted by red states, while blue states will effectively be turned into medical police states with brutal enforcement of the lockdown measures.

Most importantly, the new lockdown will be perceived as so overreaching and totalitarian that nationwide protests will soon commence.

This is actually and most likely all part of the plan. The lockdown push being mentioned by leftist extremists and traitors is being engineered to invoke a backlash, even among Leftists who will join conservatives in taking to the streets to protest the medical tyranny.

This backdrop of nationwide protests is the setting needed by the ‘deep state’ to stage a violent false flag event that I’m told will most likely target a medical facility or medical group of some kind. The FBI will of course be running this just like they ran the Whitmer “kidnapping” in Michigan as well as the Jan. 6th “capitol siege” false flag operation. Nearly every act of terrorism in America over the last two decades has been plotted and spearheaded by the corrupt FBI, and there’s little question they are planning a new theatrical caper to place blame on so-called “anti-vaxxers.”

The FBI, alongside most alphabet agencies like the ATF, are rotten from the top down. They all need disbanding, rebuilding and investigated for criminal activities. Each needs a total enema to flush out the foul smelling excrement in each one.

The Covid criminals are desperately creating a new crisis to cover up their previous crimes

The swamp criminals who ran this entire covid plandemic are getting desperate, you see, and they need to create a new crisis to try to seize even more power. Here’s how this plan will work, according to multiple sources:

Step 1) Biden announces a nationwide, overreaching lockdown.

Step 2) Americans react against the medical tyranny and take to the streets in peaceful protests.

Step 3) The criminal Biden regime exploits the chaos of the protests to stage a violent false flag attack against a medical facility so that blame can be placed on gun owners who are also “anti-vaxxers.”

Step 4) CNN runs with the staged footage, claiming anti-vaxxers are terrorists. The entire media jumps on the engineered narrative to whip up mass hysteria and hatred against the unvaccinated. This further divides America while the media whips up the emotions to insane levels.

Step 5) Biden uses the emotional hysteria to issue an executive order outlawing all gun ownership by civilians. Yes, it’s illegal and unconstitutional, but he will try it. Many red states will denounce the effort, and this will accelerate the splintering of the United States of America as red states realize they can no longer maintain any allegiance to a criminal swamp cabal that recognizes no limits of government power.

Step 6) Biden launches door-to-door “strike force” teams, now heavily armed up after the false flag theater, to forcibly vaccinate people at gunpoint and confiscate their firearms.

The no-holds-barred war on the American people thereby commences. Mass executions on the streets of America. Bloodshed on a scale never before witnessed. U.S. military troops turned against innocent civilians and doctors who promoted vitamin D instead of toxic spike protein injections.

It’s maybe all coming, and the possible beginning steps are now just two weeks away (or less).

My advice on peaceful protesting

As I explain in my podcast below, here’s what I suggest you keep in mind when joining the peaceful protests against medical tyranny:

  1. NEVER bring weapons to any protest. Not even pepper spray. If you bring weapons, you may wind up ensnared in another FBI false flag terror plot.
  2. DO NOT trespass into any building, including a hospital or clinic. This is how they arrested innocent, peaceful protesters on January 6th.
  3. FILM EVERYTHING and be ready to quickly hide your micro SD card so that the corrupt FBI can’t confiscate it after they pull off their false flag event. This means preparing in advance to hide micro SD cards in your bra, shoes, underwear, hair or even other body orifices, should you dare. Since America is now becoming North Korea, honest Americans must now resort to the same freedom techniques used by dissenting North Korean citizens who have to smuggle videos that show the corruption and criminality of the regime.
  4. WATCH OUT for efforts by individuals or any group to whip you into aggressive action of any kind. The FBI will obviously run agent provocateurs who try to convince people to do outrageous things, and CNN’s cameras will be waiting to capture you on film and destroy your life.
  5. IF IN DOUBT, stay the f##k out. Don’t get dragged into some situation that seems fishy or out of control. Don’t enter buildings or private property. Even be careful what you say verbally because there are audio recording devices all around you. By merely stating out loud something like, “We should barge in there!” you can be charged with terrorism under the new Biden regime and its corrupt DOJ.

Also remember that We the People aren’t going to win this war through kinetic conflict. We’re going to win by exposing the criminality of the regime, and that means shooting with cameras, not rifles. Use the video platforms available today to post your videos and expose the regime. Video footage is your greatest “weapon” against an illegitimate, criminal government that is now weaponizing the covid hysteria against the American people.

The Books Are Already Burning

To even write about this incurs risk. What do you believe in? What do you advocate? How will whatever it is you hope to persuade more people to work towards be undermined?

tweet from Jordan Peterson. An essay from Bari Weiss. Both in defense of an author whose book, Irreversible Damage, has been relentlessly attacked. Inexplicably, the ACLU has called for it to be banned. This book’s transgression? As the author, Abigail Shrier put it, it is

“an exploration of why so many girls would, in such a short timeframe, decide they are transgender. And it raises questions about whether they’re getting appropriate medical treatment.”

How on earth can a topic like this be considered so toxic, so threatening, that the ACLU would support a censorship campaign? Bari Weiss, who resigned from the New York Times in protest of their culture of hatred, harassment and suppression of dissenting voices, has spoken up in support of Abigail Shrier. Jordan Peterson, a Canadian psychology professor who became famous when he refused to obey a new law that made it a crime to refuse to use someone’s proclaimed gender pronouns, has also been supportive of Shrier. But these are celebrities who have themselves been targets.

To really get a taste of how vitriolic the cancel mob has become, consider the case of Dr. Harriet Hall, a family physician who posted a favorable review of Irreversible Damage on the website Science-Based Medicine. Within days, thousands of comments, emails and calls to the editors led them to issue a retraction and remove the review.

In Shrier’s essay, posted as a guest column on the substack account of Bari Weiss, she calls for people to stand up to this mob. But Shrier also acknowledges the risk:

“The fear these silent supporters express is rational. Even the most ordinary comments can get you branded as persona non grata, some flavor of ‘phobe’ or ‘ist.’ Hardly a week goes by without a story of some professor being reprimanded, a starlet losing a job, or a young reality TV figure abjectly apologizing for something he said that was completely obvious and true. Others have faced more profound threats — parents to the custody of their children, journalists and even editors of scientific journals to their physical safety. People I respect have lost livelihoods and marriages.”

This is what it has come to, with the full complicity of the internet communications monopolies. This has nothing to do with respect for the dignity of transsexuals. It has to do with whether or not children should be encouraged to do what may be irreversible damage to their bodies and their psyches.

To even write about this incurs risk. What do you want to accomplish? What are your goals, not only in your relationships and your career, but in the wider world? What do you believe in? What do you advocate? How important is your reputation? How will whatever it is you hope to persuade more people to work towards be undermined, if you are tagged as a “transphobe,” or whatever other “…phobe” or “…ist” that it’s now so easy to call someone?

There are many battles being waged. Many causes. Many controversies. Cancel culture, applied with extreme bias by big tech, has decided if you merely want women like Abigail Shrier to be given a fair hearing, on an issue affecting the future happiness of children, you are a bigot.

That is wrong. More people should defend Abigail Shrier’s right to speak her mind, come what may.

Larry Elder’s Running for Governor of California

California, and America, needs more people like Larry Elder. And they are coming. With increasing frequency and increasing intensity, across America, conservatives of all colors are asserting themselves.

Once in a great while someone enters the American political arena who has the potential to completely upend the prevailing political landscape. Larry Elder is such a person.

A native Californian, Elder began his career as an attorney but in 1993 launched a weekday evening talk radio show. Now known as “The Sage of South Central [Los Angeles],” for nearly 30 years, Elder, an African American, has been a source of wisdom and common sense and has influenced a generation of listeners.

As a Black conservative, Elder is a threat to California’s Democrats, and that is reflected in how they are using bureaucratic tricks to keep him off the ballot. Singled out for special treatment, Elder’s application to run in the September 14 special recall election has been delayed based on allegedly improper signatures and tax return disclosures. The supposed violations are immaterial and would not be used to derail a candidate that was not a threat to California’s ruling class.

Common sense, coming from someone who can relate to normal voters, would indict the Democrats on nearly every facet of public policy in California. In every critical area, from, for example, education and law enforcement to housing, the homeless, energy and water policies, and forestry, Democrats have failed Californians.

Instead of addressing these issues with pragmatic policies that solve the problems, California’s Democrats, with more than a little help from Republicans, have indulged the agenda of powerful special interests: socialist teacher unions, leftist billionaires, monopolistic corporations, and environmentalist and social justice activists. The rhetoric is compelling, the goals often sound noble, but the results have been dismal. Elder would cut through the rhetoric and explain reality.

Whether or not Larry Elder ends up on California’s recall election ballot will be known in a few days. If he is denied a spot, it will be yet another example of just how corrupt California’s politics have become. If he manages to compel the bureaucrats to do the right thing, and does have a chance to speak to California’s nearly 20 million registered voters, he has the potential to change everything.

California, and America, needs more people like Larry Elder. And they are coming. With increasing frequency and increasing intensity, across America, conservatives of all colors are asserting themselves.

The Crying Need for Self-Control in Our Time

Virtually every day we see examples of men and women who are out of control in modern society. And they are making life miserable for many.

For example, 51 people were shot in Chicago this last weekend—eight of them fatally. This is so common we almost grow callous to the news.

People lack self-control. The Bible talks about the traits of a godly person who draws close to Christ and develops over time what are called “the fruit of the Spirit.” There is a list of these in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians. They are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control

We need all these today. But I want to home in on the last one.

There is a widespread lack of self-control. Consider the ways.

We see young people consumed with their screen devices. I have actually seen a family of four eating out a restaurant, and no one was talking with each other. Instead, each one was immersed in his or her mobile device. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them were texting each other. “Say, do you want dessert?” “Yeah, maybe the tiramisu.”

Look at the example of the lack of self-control when it comes to the tongue. That includes what is “spoken” through emails and tweets and texts.

In this politically correct age, anybody who’s a public figure could be one stupid remark away from destroying virtually everything.

Solomon the Wise wrote in the book of Proverbs, “Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.” How many times have we said something that we wish we could take back? In our age of Twitter and Facebook, once you post something, it’s there forever, for all practical purposes.

Abraham Lincoln reportedly said, “It is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” But the Bible beat President Lincoln to it by about 2800 years. In Proverbs, we read, “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.”

Ambrose Bierce once observed, “Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.”

Self-control is often lacking in the realm of finances and spending today as well. Author Robert Morrissette said, “A credit card allows you to transcend time. For it allows you to put off until tomorrow what you bought today, while you are still paying what you bought yesterday.”

In short, many people are living beyond their means.

But then there’s a lack of self-control when it comes to gluttony and eating. In short, many people are living beyond their seams.

Think of the lack of self-control when it comes to alcohol or drugs today. There are recovery groups all over the place—thank God for that. Yet it is tragic that so many get addicted in the first place.

Then there’s a lack of self-control when it comes to holding one’s temper. If you look at the news, we are living in angry times. Strangers beating up strangers—not controlling themselves. We see examples of road rage—where cutting someone off could actually lead to a fatal confrontation.

I remember one time in a W. C. Fields movie from around 1940, where this girl got so mad at these two little boys that she picked up a rock to throw it at them. And he said, “Ah, ah, ah. Count to ten.” She counts, “1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10.” He says, “Now throw it. You’ve got a better aim that way.”

Even many forms of therapy encourage people to vent their anger, to the point where “let it out” has become a mental-health strategy. But the Bible says if you control your temper, you are greater than one who controls a city.

I could go on with example after example of the crying need for more self-control in our time.

The founders envisioned America as a land where the people would have liberty, but that liberty was not the same thing as licentiousness—where people act in lawless ways as if there were no consequences to their misdeeds.

Our second president John Adams once wrote, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

When people get truly converted in their heart, so often they experience a new level of self-control. This is what we need more of in our society, not less.

If you would experience self-mastery, then yield yourself to the Master.

NY Dem Leaders Call on Gov. Cuomo to Resign or be Impeached

In a statement released Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared flatly that NY State Gov. Andrew Cuomo should resign or be impeached due to an investigation concluding that Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women.

“It is beyond clear that Andrew Cuomo is not fit to hold office and can no longer serve as Governor,” the statement reads. “He must resign, and if he continues to resist and attack the investigators who did their jobs, he should be impeached immediately.”

Other NY Democrat leaders piled on. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand also called for the Governor to resign Tuesday: “I do believe he should resign,” she told reporters on Capitol Hill.

New York Reps. Tom Suozzi (D-NY), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), and Greg Meeks (D-NY) also said Cuomo should “do the right thing for the people of New York State and resign.”

A defiant Cuomo rejected the findings of the report. “The facts are much different than what has been portrayed. I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances,” he stated on Tuesday. “That is just not who I am or who I have ever been.”

New York Attorney General Letitia James asserts otherwise, announcing that her investigation “revealed conduct that corrodes the very fabric and character of our state government and shines light on injustice that can be present at the highest level of government.”

Heavy-Handed Approach to Getting New Yorkers to Take COVID Vaccines

At a July 26, 2021 media briefing, Cuomo announced a new campaign allocating $15 million in taxpayer funds to promote COVID-19 vaccinations among the 3.5 million New Yorkers who had not yet been inoculated against the coronavirus responsible for COVID. “We have to get in those communities, and we have to knock on those doors, and we have to convince people, and put them in a car, and drive them, and get that vaccine in their arm,” he stated. “That is the mission.”

“Three and a half million unvaccinated people,” Cuomo added. “These numbers can be hard to put into context, but 3.5 million is larger than 21 other states’ total population. We have an unvaccinated population larger than the entire population of 21 states, and then when you put this COVID delta variant — which is transmitted much easier than the normal COVID virus — you put that variant with 3.5 million people, that spells ‘spread of COVID.’ That is what is happening. We know that’s what’s happening, we see it in the numbers, and numbers don’t lie.”

Democrat Autocrats Prep Massive Infrastructure Bill, Plan to Push Through Before Most Can Read It

The one-party totalitarians are now pushing to pass bills that haven’t even been written or finished, a bill that will certainly bankrupt and ruin this nation.

One Payoff in the Infrastructure Deal Is So Blatantly Corrupt That You Almost Have to Respect the Hustle

From the Wall Street Journal:

Mr. Schumer wants to rush the bill through so he can move on to Bernie Sanders’s $3.5 trillion budget resolution that he will then sprint through on a party-line vote. He wants to pass both before the Senate’s August recess. Amendments will often be offered and voted on while the nation sleeps to meet this artificial deadline that is convenient for the political class but not for informing the public. Both parties operate this way now. But it isn’t the right way to run a democracy, and no wonder Americans hold Congress in such low regard (WSJ).

From Ben Shapiro: Total number of people in Congress who will read this before voting: (Twitter).

Dan McLaughlin: At this stage, even the staffers may not read the thing (Twitter).

Another story notes

The new $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill contains billions of dollars to upgrade border crossings — but no money at all for the southern border wall, which President Joe Biden abandoned, despite an ongoing surge of illegal migration (Breitbart).

Democrat Joe Manchin hasn’t said if he’ll vote to approve (Washington Times).

The Social Media Giants Find A Violent Extremist: Me

So since I watch terrorists, I’ve been watching myself. My latest in FrontPage:

As the director of Jihad Watch, I have an ongoing interest in the activities of violent extremists, and have been tracking those activities daily for eighteen years now. But now, in their benevolence, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and YouTube have made it easier than ever with their Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT): all I have to do is look in the mirror.

The GIFCT means to wipe out the groups it targets. Tyler O’Neil explains at PJ Media that GIFCT “shares terrorism data among Big Tech companies, enabling them to flag and remove terrorist content,” and is stepping up these operations: “On Monday, GIFCT announced that it significantly expanded the types of extremist content in its database, aiming to crack down on material from white supremacists and far-right militias.”

It’s about time, right? Those white supremacists and far-right militias have been rioting with impunity in Portland, and Seattle, and – oh, wait, that was the noble ideological heirs of the heroes of World War II. But we don’t have to guess who they have in mind: the GIFCT offers a helpful list of the dangerous groups from which it is going to save us.

At the highest level, Level 3, are the groups GIFCT classifies as actual bloodthirsty, grade-A certified dangerous terrorists: Boogaloo Boys, Ku Klux Klan, the National Socialist Network, Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, even the Irish Republican Army. But that’s not all that the intrepid warriors of the GIFCT are going after. Once you’ve reached Level 3, the problem has advanced way too far, anyway. The GIFCT aims to nip terrorism in the bud by also targeting Level 2, “Violent Extremism,” which includes groups that are just below terrorist group status, but moving up the charts with a bullet: Blood & Honour, Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and…Jihad Watch.

Perhaps even more surprising than the inclusion of Jihad Watch on this list is the fact that Antifa is also listed at Level 2. The likelihood of the social media giants moving in on Antifa is about as likely as Nancy Pelosi being Trump’s running mate in 2024, but it does help put things in perspective. Antifa has been openly calling for and applauding violence in cities all over the country, and as far as the counter-terror “experts” at the GIFCT are concerned, they’re on par with an organization that is dedicated to tracking jihad terror activity and elucidating its motivating ideology. Unlike Antifa, neither I nor Jihad Watch has ever called for or approved of any violence or illegal activity of any kind. But another way we differ from Antifa is that establishment media stooges aren’t falling all over themselves likening us to the men (you may remember what those were) who stormed the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944. The likelihood that Jihad Watch will be targeted for being on the GIFCT’s list, and Antifa given another pass, is about 100%.

On the morning I found out that I was a violent extremist, I discovered that violent extremists sometimes enjoy a bit of yogurt for breakfast, try to fit in a good long walk, and spend a lot of the day typing. It was a bit more sedentary, and definitely filled with less death-defying adventure, than I expected for an official “violent extremist.” With all the time I sit here facing this infernal machine, the GIFCT may think I’m at work on my “manifesto,” for they say they’re going to make sure that “Manifestos from terrorist and violent extremist attackers” are removed from the Internet, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be intensely scrutinized, for “a wide range of experts on expanding the reach and impact of our hash-sharing database’s taxonomy in order to respond to terrorist content online across the ideological spectrum.”

Hey, great. Let me start you folks off on the right foot. Here’s my Manifesto, GIFCT, straight from one of your designated “violent extremists.” Get your experts on this, and make sure they study it carefully. Ready? Here it is:

You. People. Are. Nuts.

That’s it. You like it? It took me months to get the precise formulation of my “violent extremist” ideas. And just because I have so much respect for your violent extremist-hunting prowess, GIFCT wonks, here’s a bonus. Here’s what I want for America and the world: the freedom of speech. The freedom of conscience. The equality of rights of all people before the law.

Yeah, I know that messes with you Communists’ sugar-plum visions of racial strife, civil war, and the dissolution of America as a unitary nation-state. And that may be the clue to all of this madness. Violent extremists and their enablers want to make sure they have a free hand, and one strategy to get it was delineated in the Marxists’ tested-and-true playbook: accuse your enemy of that which you’re guilty of doing. Could it be that my organization been designated a violent extremist group because some people have a bit of violent extremism planned and want to make sure that anyone who might speak out against them is silenced and cleared away?

Stranger things have happened. Meanwhile, if I disappear from the net, and from the streets, someday soon, you’ll know that the good folks at the GIFCT have done their job. One less violent extremist will be menacing the rest of us. And we will all be able to breathe a sigh of relief over that. Won’t we?

Biden’s Intentional Destruction of America’s Borders

On Aug. 1, Fox News/Los Angeles released video of at least 1,000 illegal immigrants lined up for free transportation under the Anzalduas Bridge in Mission, Texas. Anxious to hide the tidal wave of illegals being allowed to flood into America virtually unimpeded, the Biden administration is impeding reporters on the ground from getting close enough to photograph the invasion—the Fox/LA video was taken by drone.

Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar, whose South Texas congressional district is being overrun with illegal border crossers, posted pictures—see below—of illegals huddled beneath the Anzalduas Bridge on July 31. One pictures shows a bus being loaded with future Democrat voters, who are being dumped off in Republican states. This has been going on since Biden took office and will continue unabated through the midterm elections. Thanks to the totally corrupt mainstream media, most Americans have no idea of the extent of what Biden is doing to render the U.S. border with Mexico meaningless.

What’s shown above is going on 24/7. Some migrants are flown to undisclosed locations in the American interior. So far this year, the Biden administration has provided free transportation, free overnight accommodations, and free legal advice to over 1 million migrants who illegally crossed the border; by the end of the year, the number is projected to rise to 2 million. Biden is stuffing America will unprecedented numbers of illegals because Democrats intend to make every illegal in the country eligible to vote in time for the 2022 midterm elections.

In February 2015, then-Vice President Joe Biden signaled his enthusiasm for open borders:

“I’m proud of [the Obama administration’s] record on immigration. Not only our Muslim communities, Asian communities, Hispanic communities. And the wave still continues. And it’s not going to stop. Nor should we want it to stop. An unrelenting stream of immigration. Non-stop, non-stop. And that’s a good thing.”

During his 2020 presidential campaign, Biden let refugees and illegal immigrants know they would be received with open arms if he was elected. Once inaugurated as the country’s new president, Biden moved quickly in keeping his promise:

  • In a single month, February, 100,000 illegal immigrants were allowed by Biden to cross the Southern border.
  • In March, the number swelled to 170,000 border encounters with illegals.
  • In April 2020, when Trump was in office, there were 17,000 border encounters with illegals and “refugees.” In April 2021, the number skyrocketed to 178,000, an increase of 950%. Some projections say the total for 2021 could approach two million, all of whom know that surrendering to the Biden Border Patrol will ensure a quick and hassle-free pass to the U.S. destination of their choice.
  • To maximize the inflow of desperately-poor migrants, Biden last week granted “temporary protected status” to Haitian illegals due to “poverty.”

As president, Biden has resurrected Obama’s “catch and release” policy, i.e. releasing detainees into the interior of the country before their cases have been decided in court. Many are given free transportation to Republican states and districts, and without being tested for Covid. Assigned a future court date, few will ever show up.

Biden is housing the migrant tidal wave in taxpayer-provided hotel rooms, and one Democrat-run state, New York, is giving up to $15,000 to illegal immigrants hit by Covid. In attempting to culminate the long-standing progressive goal of doing away with America’s borders—and thus its sovereignty—Biden is intentionally destroying our two-party constitutional democracy bit by bit, nowhere more so than by opening the southern border to what he proudly refers to as “an unrelenting stream” of desperately poor, uneducated, non-English speaking migrants, all of whom will be eligible for free health care, free educations, free housing, free food and soon, full citizenship.

George Soros: The Puppet Master of a Borderless World

The national identities of every progressive-run nation in Europe are being methodically erased, and the same thing is being attempted here in America by the post-1960s Democratic Party. Encouraging open borders as the primary means of destroying the unique national identities of western nations is the foremost goal of billionaire globalist George Soros and his communist fellow travelers in the western world.

Soros is the most prolific financier of the communist push for a world without borders. In his anti-capitalist best-seller, The Crisis of Global Capitalism, Soros sets out the progressive strategy for a western world under communism. Complaining bitterly about “the sway of sovereign nations,” Soros spends immense sums each year fostering “open society alliances” among contiguous sovereign nations. A world made up of open societies. It sounds so wonderful, so non-threatening. It is anything but.

The goal of these alliances is to shame citizens of western nations to accept the high-mindedness of doing away with national identities in favor of a collectivist “we are the world” identity, through which people are systematically conditioned to no longer see themselves as citizens of their country, but as Citizens of the World. (In his 2008 Berlin speech, Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama told an adoring crowd of 200,000 European Marxists, “I come to you as a Citizen of the World.”)

Citizens of sovereign nations who oppose the unfettered influx of migrants and refugees are shouted down as racists and xenophobes. Once open border alliances have been solidified, the last obstacle would thus be cleared for a borderless world subject to the dictates of a new international governing body run by the UN, an organization infested from top to bottom with hardened Marxists. For global governance to happen, the sovereignty of the United States must first be eliminated, a treasonous mission being prosecuted by the post-1960s Democratic Party through its active support of open borders and virtually unrestricted mass migration.

By extending the welcome mat to unprecedented numbers of non-white, non-assimilating migrants and refugees, progressive leaders in Europe and the U.S. have moved a giant step closer toward erasing national identities. With sovereign nations rendered impotent, the specter of a world under the banner of the hammer and sickle would become a fate accompli.

When the election of Donald Trump dealt a devastating setback to the near-term realization of an America subverted from within by the Marxists in our midst, Soros penned an angry rant comparing Trump to Hitler, and calling him a racist and a xenophobe. Known as “The Puppet Master” because of the enormous influence his deep pockets exert on Democratic Party hierarchy, Soros’s foremost target in taking down sovereign capitalist nations is the crown jewel of them all, the United States of America. In tirelessly working toward the culmination of that takedown, the billionaire communist mastermind has influential friends at the highest levels of the modern Democratic Party.

Wake up, America!

  • Soros group launches App to help illegal immigrants break U.S. border law
  • Hillary Clinton privately tells South American bankers, “I dream of open borders.”
  • John Kerry tells college graduates “prepare to live in a borderless world.”
  • Illegal immigrants say they will overwhelm our system, destroy our borders.

Dear Parents: We Are Many, They Are Few. Okay, Let’s Act Like It.

Isn’t it wonderful to see all of the people talking to their school boards. telling them and directing them that this hate America, hate family, hate God, nonsense is over.  Once you see the outcry you will realize there are more of us than them.  You must never ever forget that.   Okay, we have gone to the school boards. They have told us that they don’t see any critical race theory in anything that they have put in front of our children.  Now what?

They are trying to dismiss us. They even tell us to go ahead do a search and find.  You will not see Critical Race Theory (CRT). Of course not, they have already change the words.  Did you find Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?  CRT is the theory  SEL is the mechanisms used to implement CRT.  Did you find “diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice?”  Those are the new words we must be most aware of. If you find those words, you have CRT. Remember they don’t want us to be aware.

The programs that are being used on our students are implemented by psychological manipulation and the use of technology. CASEL, a software, continues to nudge students until the “right” response is uttered.  This process has been around for years. It has been escalated through technology – data management. This propaganda and manipulation is used to keep the people ignorant. It has been used by some of the brightest and most evil people on the planet.  It’s an old plan with new words. That’s why we will never be able to say history is being repeated.  If you are ignorant of history you can’t repeat it.

CRT says that everything you do is based on race and since you were born into that race, there is NOTHING you can do about it. Saying you are not racist means you are. There is no way out. In reality, these communists have no respect for minorities as they believe minorities are always victims of the whites. Their solution: You are born that way so whites get on your knees and beg for forgiveness, while minorities should step on them.  According to CRT White people have slanted all opportunity in their direction while victimization goes to the minority.  In reality, there are way many more people who DON’T BELIEVE this critical race theory. Approximately 60% of Americans believe  CRT is bad. Since the Communist Democrat party believes America is a democracy (majority rules) according to their own standards, CRT should be out.  But that would mean you would have to understand and use math. Now you know why math is racist and can’t be taught.

According to a recent survey by Parents Defend Education:

We recently conducted a national poll to gauge voters’ attitudes toward “woke” education — including radical race and gender curricula — and found that:

  • 80% oppose the use of classrooms to promote political activism
  • 75% oppose teaching there is no such thing as biological sex
  • 74% oppose teaching that white people are inherently privileged and people of color are inherently oppressed

But that doesn’t matter. According to the communists Parents are not capable of making decisions for their children.

The answer to helping students get ahead is to shut successful schools.

Okay so you won’t see the words Critical Race Theory. However you will see Social Emotional Learning (SEL).  Social Emotional Learning is the method that is used to push critical race theory.  By using the right triggers you get the child/person so wound up emotionally they will act exactly as you have taught them to act.  By using CASEL software that continually questions student’s responses and nudges them, you can ensure their answers are the ones that you want. This is called Outcome Based education or Mastery Learning.  Just look at the “summer of love”. These people were trained to riot.

Poison in our Government/Schools

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) warned that discrimination in healthcare has an impact on health outcomes; they cited research that shows one-quarter of LGBTQ people who experienced discrimination delayed or avoided receiving needed medical care for fear of further discrimination. How many people are we talking about?

Why must the “majority” change their lifestyle to accommodate the minority?

I though America was a democracy. Ha!

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is the theory that everything in America is based on race and white people are at fault.  Whites are the oppressors and the minorities are the oppressed. Race has become weaponized so neighbors will fear and report each other. The worst thing to a communist is communication of the truth between parties. Keep those masks on to limit conversation.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)is the method of manipulating the mind into believing in CRT. According to Karen Niemi, CEO of CASEL, Collaborative Academics for Social Emotional Learning (CASEL) school software used to nudge students. Karen states, “SEL is a weapon to be used to achieve Social Justice.”  In December the president and CEO of CASEL, Karen Niemi, announced that CASEL has revised its definition of and framework for “socio-emotional learning” to highlight the value of SEL as a weapon for social justice. Woke-speak pervades the new direction. In contrast to the previous fairly anodyne definition of SEL, the new one emphasizes student “identities” and “marginalization,” “equity,”  “just communities,” and the “collective” rather than the individual.” Was she perfectly clear?

Des it matter if no one pays attention? This program is used in our schools. For further explanation look at this great interview with Meg Bakich and Lynne Davenport on CRT in SEL and EdTech apps.

Is the reading program Amplify in your school? The Amplify program uses SEL through  the software from CASEL.

Embedded social and emotional learning

Consistent with the most widely-recognized framework and standards for SEL (from the CASEL consortium), Amplify Reading engages students with the five areas of social and emotional learning—self-awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making—through its storylines, diverse communities, and extension activities.

Motivation and SEL

CASEL offers captivating instruction that keeps students playing while teaching Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

By using CASEL software, data is managed and SEL is disseminated throughout all subjects.  The child is nudged though a series of questions which don’t stop until the correct response is achieved.

The responses are recorded and stored for future uses in nudging. We will no longer judge a student by academic achievement but by their “correct” responses. The teacher is a monitor and may not even see the questions the students are asked.

If we want to get rid of this garbage, then we should stop bringing it in through technology. K-5 does not need devices to learn to read, write and do math.

Students do not need to study racism when they can’t read. Every moment spent learning social garbage takes precious time away from actually learning academics.

America is in our hands and it is up to us to make the right decisions, right now here today.  How did this happen? Just look in the mirror.  How involved were you in your child’s schooling?  Did you accept everything because you because you felt that the school was the expert? How wrong you were. We have allowed someone we don’t know to make life decisions for our children by being the silent majority. Gladly this is changing.

Ok, everyone shouts out about our problem, what are some solutions.  What can one person do? When people contact me they want to know, I am one person what can I do?

Time to be proactive. There are many things we can do.

The most important thing that you can do right now is get tight with your family and teach someone to read. This is really important.. Have a weekly family night, even by Zoom. Then read a book around the table. See who in your family can’t read (47% of Floridians graduate and can’t read on grade level.) Work with that family member or friend or neighbor.  Teach someone to read. If you have any problems contact me.

Fact: Illegals are coming in droves because the DNC is looking at future voters.  Want to flip the table? Until Comrade Biden leaves office, these people are here.

So let’s put them on the track of traditional America, not communist America. They left communism, they know it and hate it.   If we teach these illegals to read and gave them a good American history lesson in American values, who would they vote for? Don’t leave them in the dark. They’re here and until we can figure out what to do with them we might as well make them productive for America. So your homework is teach someone to read.

Another thought…Is it not time to be proactive instead of reactive? No one ever asks, How many students does that LGBTQ week touch?  LGBTQ is less than .05% of the population. (find out in your district)   They keep telling us America is a democracy. In a democracy the majority wins. Why are we having a special program that is for less than .05% of the population?   Parents should thank them for “taking care of” LGBTQ. then demand a special week or day for 99.95% of the population, you know the straight majority. How much money per child was spent on each LGBTQ child?  Demand the same amount be spent on straight students.

The Right is lousy at messaging. But that is not the only problem.  The most successful program of the Civil Rights movement is the Boycott. Why are we not doing the same thing?  Perhaps because history doesn’t mention the Boycott.  Why are we still using their stuff and feeding the beast? The day FB took down Trump, I closed my FB acct. Why give them my money, my data? Yes it is inconvenient but to say I need FB is like an addict needing heroine. The more money we give them the more they abuse us. I don’t go to the movies, I don’t buy stuff from China whenever there is something American made. I always look at labels. I don’t shop in stores that support the communist causes.

Parents keep your kids out of school this first week.  Home school, start a school with friends and neighbors. Public schools get money on attendance. No kids no money.  You want them to listen, stop allowing them to manipulate us.

Did you know that the elite in Silicon Valley do not allow their kids to have electronic devices until middle school? Keep electronic devices out of K-5.  K-5 are the most formative years. Reading (phonics not phonemic awareness), writing and math, plus life skills should be taught at that time. Have you asked your child to read to you recently? If you want your kids to learn to read, write and do math teach them.   Devices are used to instill SEL which is CRT.  The school is a pot of boiling water, why are we throwing our kids in?

I am very proud to belong to the Florida Citizens Alliance.  The Alliance is suing Broward School Bd for not following FOIA  and continuing to use pornographic material in Public Schools.  Do you have an Alliance in your state?

Have you been to a school board meeting recently? Have you checked what texts  and supplemental materials are being used? It is hard for people to represent you if you are silent. Yes, we need to constantly call them out but actions speak louder than words.

Is America worth saving?  What’s in your school?

Senator Markey (D-Mass) Leads Protesters in Singing ‘Communist’ Anthem

At a protest Monday evening to urge puppet President Joe Biden to extend the eviction moratorium, Sen. Ed Markey praised songwriter Woody Guthrie as a “communist” before leading other Democrat congress people, including lifelong communist Sen. Bernie Sanders and radical “Squad” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush, in singing Guthrie’s collectivist anthem, “This Land Is Your Land.”

“A great socialist, who wrote a great song, which a lot of people think is an anthem for our country, but it was written by a socialist, okay?” Markey proclaimed. “Back in the 1930s. A communist. He was a communist. He was a socialist. He was a radical. And you know what that song is? ‘This Land Is Your Land. Can we sing that? Who can start that?”

A Capitol policeman then interrupted, instructing protesters to gather their belongings and not leave them unattended.

Guthrie’s 1940 song “This Land Is Your Land” was actually an angry retort to Irving Berlin’s popular “God Bless America,” sung by Kate Smith. Unrecorded lyrics show that the song is an ode to abolishing public property:

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me.
The sign was painted, said ‘Private Property.’
But on the backside, it didn’t say nothing.
This land was made for you and me.

In another verse, Guthrie wonders if “God blessed America”:

One bright sunny morning in the shadow of the steeple,
by the relief office I saw my people.
As they stood hungry,
I stood there wondering if God blessed America for me.

In 2009, activist singers Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen sang the anthem for then-President Barack Obama’s inauguration. The Democratic Socialists of America also embraced the song’s radical lyrics: “Woody Guthrie was a fellow traveler with the American Communist Party… For Guthrie, real patriotism meant celebrating workers and their communities.”

It says everything about today’s Democrat party that its leaders openly praise communists and lead crowds in singing a communist anthem instead of our national anthem.

36 Known Connections

Following the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, Markey was highly critical of the Republican administration. In one example, after President-elect Trump appointed former executive chairman of Breitbart News Steve Bannon as his chief strategist in 2016, Markey released a blistering statement condemning the move: “If the saying is true and you are the company you keep, Donald Trump has chosen to champion the positions of neo-Nazis, white nationalists and anti-Semites by appointing Steve Bannon as chief strategist and senior counselor. There is no place in our society, let alone the White House, for purveyors like Steve Bannon of hate and violence against any group of Americans. President-elect Trump will forever poison the well with Congress and the American people by appointing a figure who has fueled the rhetoric and activities of hate groups that actively promote violence against immigrants, Muslims, women, African-Americans, the LGBTQ community, and people of Jewish faith.”

COVID 19 Protocols: #1 – No Vaccine!

Foreword by Fred Brownbill: Today’s blog is about alternative treatments and suggestions for such. It is bound to not go down well with all those “sheep” and the Commie Social Media who will do their damndest to erase this post as you share it online on your Facebook or Twitter accounts. They will use their lying ‘fact checkers’ ( what a joke! ) to try say this is a lie. That it is not the science!

Try sharing this blog link as a text or email if that happens.

I have made this post with several links for you all to hit and follow as you educate yourselves and families on the horror that is the Covid Vaccine, which by the way is now the most profitable drug ever made!! See below 2 examples of that obscene profitability.

This is how much Pfizer has made from the coronavirus vaccine

Analysts project that Moderna will make $1.5 billion in the first quarter of 2021 from sales of mRNA-1273 rising to $3.5 billion by the third quarter. For the full year, its anticipated that Moderna will make around $11 billion. Over the next five years predictions are that Moderna’s sales of mRNA-1273 will approach $20 billion.

As cities, counties, states and countries continue their attempts to shame us ‘non-vaxers’ into taking it or by their attempting to make our lives intolerable by ensuring we are treated as second class citizens, just know your life is more important than their obsession to vaccinate the world with a non approved, relatively untried or tested vaccine.

I have also supplied a link for you to contact a medical professional practice who will help you with the right choices and medicines for the Chinese virus! PLEASE keep this link somewhere safe incase you need it. File it away!

Please take the time to hit the links etc. and share this blog as far and wide as you can. You are not alone. Millions of us will not take this vaccine for a lot of different reasons or beliefs.

DEATH BLOW: Democrat Regime To Mandate Vaccine Passport and Masks In Restaurants And Gyms on Dying New York City

Markets tanked on the news.

The Democrats have waged war on this once great city — and now they are going for the kill.

NYC to mandate proof of vaccination for many indoor settings

By Nolan Hicks and Sam Raskin | NY Post August 3, 2021 |

New York City will mandate proof of vaccination to enter certain indoor businesses — including restaurants, entertainment venues and gyms — and deny entry to those without the jab, Mayor Bill de Blasio will announce Tuesday.

The initiative, to be dubbed the “Key to NYC Pass,” marks a significant escalation of the city’s efforts to curb the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant, and will launch in mid-August and enforcement will begin in September following a public service announcement campaign, administration officials said.

The program is modeled after the vaccine passport programs rolled out in France and other European countries, according to de Blasio administration officials.

New Yorkers will be required to show either the state’ “Excelsior Pass,” the city’s new vaccine pass or Center for Disease Control’s paper vaccine card, as proof of vaccination, officials told The Post.

Unlike the newly released rules for city workers, those who are unvaccinated will not have an option to receive a COVID-19 test, administration sources said. The restrictions will not apply to outdoor dining, sources said.

City Hall officials said de Blasio will announce more details on the vaccine requirement during his regular mid-morning virtual press briefing on Tuesday.

In recent days, de Blasio has repeatedly floated the possibility of ramping up restrictions and vaccine requirements. He mandated in late July that all public health system employees get their shots or receive a weekly coronavirus test — and then expanded the requirement for the entire city workforce.

“We’ve got to shake people at this point and say, ‘Come on now.’ We tried voluntary. We could not have been more kind and compassionate. Free testing, everywhere you turn, incentives, friendly, warm embrace. The voluntary phase is over,” de Blasio said on MSNBC last week. “It’s time for mandates, because it’s the only way to protect our people.”

During an appearance on CNN, the mayor left the door open to soon imposing vaccination requirements to enter city bars and restaurants.

“Given everything we’re learning, all options are on the table,” he said Friday. “I keep saying we’re climbing the ladder in terms of more and more mandates.”

And on Monday, the mayor hinted at the Big Apple moving toward a “reality” in which those who do not get vaccinated are barred from certain settings.

“More and more, there’s going to be a reality where, if you’re vaccinated, a world of opportunity opens up to you. If you’re not vaccinated, there’s going to be more and more things you can’t do,” de Blasio said during his virtual press briefing, when he announced that the city will only hire vaccinated workers and advised all New Yorkers to wear masks in indoor, public settings.

“I say that to say, go get vaccinated, so you can fully participate in the life of this city, because that’s where things are going.”

President Trump Amends Big Tech Lawsuit as 65,000 Americans Submit Censorship Stories

I’m one of them!

Trump Amends Big Tech Lawsuit as 65,000 Americans Submit Censorship Stories

By Tom Ozimek, The Epoch Times, August 2, 2021:

Former President Donald Trump’s legal team has amended his class action lawsuit against Big Tech to incorporate additional class representatives and more censorship stories provided by everyday Americans.

According to the America First Policy Institute (AFPI), Trump’s July 7 lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter, and Google is adding ”additional censorship experiences” from some of the nearly 65,000 people who submitted them to the institute.

”Late last night, Amended Complaints were filed in the Big Tech lawsuits against Facebook, Inc., Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter, Inc., Jack Dorsey, Google LLC, and Sundar Pichai,” AFPI said in a July 28 statement.

“Since the initial filing on July 7, 2021, nearly 65,000 American people have submitted their stories of censorship through America First Policy Institute’s (AFPI) Constitutional Litigation Partnership (CLP) at,” AFPI added.

Trump said at a July 7 press conference outlining his plans for the legal action that he expected thousands of people would join his lawsuit. Several people invited to speak at the press conference shared their experiences of what they said amounted to censorship by social media platforms.

“Joining us this morning are just a few of the many Americans who have been illegally banned or silenced under the corrupt regime of censorship,” Trump said at the time.

“These brave patriots are included in the lawsuit and thousands more are joining as we speak. Thousands more. They’re all wanting to join. This will be, I think will go down as the biggest class action ever filed,” Trump predicted.

AFPI said in its statement that Trump’s amended complaint includes “additional censorship experiences and incorporates additional class representatives, including Dr. Naomi Wolf and Wayne Allyn Root—individuals on opposite ends of the political spectrum who highlight the bipartisan need to protect the thoughts and voices of all Americans, regardless of political affiliation.”

Wolf, a longtime liberal and former adviser to the political campaigns of both Bill Clinton and Al Gore, told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” in a recent interview that the growing number of people banned from Big Tech platforms is leading to a wave of self-censorship.

Wolf, who was banned by Twitter in June for allegedly sharing so-called misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines, said the “chilling effect” her ban has had on other journalists is evident because some have reached out to her directly.

“I’ve gotten so many emails from other reporters saying, ‘I really admire you, I’m so sorry you were de-platformed.’ And when I would say ‘well, can you say that publicly?’ They universally said ‘I would, but I’m really afraid of being de-platformed.’ And I’ve seen the self censorship that has gone on in the wake of some high-profile de-platforming of journalists,” she said.

Trump said at the July 7 press conference that his suit centers on protecting the First Amendment right to free speech.

“We’re asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to order an immediate halt to social media companies’ illegal, shameful censorship of the American people, and that’s exactly what they are doing,” the former president said.

“We’re demanding an end to the shadow banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and canceling that you know so well. Our case will prove this censorship is unlawful, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s completely un-American,” added Trump who himself was banned from major social media platform following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Twitter, Facebook, and Google said in January that they banned Trump over his claims that the Nov. 3 election was stolen and alleged that he contributed to the Jan. 6 violence. Twitter executives have said Trump’s ban will be permanent, Facebook imposed a two-year ban on the former president’s account, and Google-owned YouTube has said it would curtail his suspension until it determines that “the risk of violence has decreased.”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey were named in the lawsuits—as well as the companies themselves. Trump said the lawsuits will seek a court award of punitive damages over the suspension.

How We Lost the Bible

Casey Chalk: The promotion of Biblical interpretations serving secular, liberal political agendas of sex and race is only the latest manifestation of a centuries-old trend.

The Bible makes no explicit condemnations of transgenderism. It makes no claims as to the morality of abortion. It encourages racial reparations. Such claims can be found virtually everywhere in corporate media like the Washington PostNew York Times, or CNN, which seek to promote the various political objectives of the Democratic Party.

During his campaign for president, Episcopalian Pete Buttigieg argued that Jesus never mentioned abortion and that Bible verses censuring homosexuality were culturally conditioned, not eternal truths. The Washington Post, in turn, cites secular academics, who offer Biblical exegesis of a progressivist, feminist, and racial identitarian variety.

Of course, the Bible has always been a political document. The Old Testament was not only a religious and liturgical text but one that had much to say about the governance of the ancient kingdom of Israel. Jesus told his followers to respect and pay taxes to the Roman Empire. St. Paul described the temporal ruler as “God’s servant for your good.” (Romans 13:3-4)

For most of ecclesial history, the primary interpreters of Holy Scripture were not journalists, politicians, or secular academics, but the Catholic Church herself. Most early Church Fathers were priests or bishops. Ecumenical councils like Nicea, Chalcedon, or Lyon made determinations on theology, morality, and the meaning of the Bible.

But beginning in the fourteenth century, scholars like Marsilius of Padua and William of Ockham began questioning the hierarchy’s hold on biblical interpretation. Instead, they proposed, the Bible should be under the authority of scholarly experts supported by secular political authorities. Though it would take several centuries for their ideas to proliferate, this thinking came to fruition in the Reformation and Enlightenment, and inspire trends in scriptural exegesis to this day.

This story is the focus of Scott Hahn’s and Benjamin Wiker’s book, The Decline and Fall of Sacred Scripture: How the Bible Became a Secular Book. Less than three-hundred pages, the book summarizes the central arguments of the authors’ 2012 Politicizing the Bible: The Roots of Historical Criticism and the Secularization of Scripture 1300-1700, which is more than twice the size. This is a welcome development; it makes their important contributions accessible to a larger audience.

While the story begins with Marsilius and Ockham and their Erastian belief in the supremacy of the state over the Church, the reader will encounter many familiar faces. John Wycliffe, esteemed by Protestants as the “Morning Star” of the Reformation, argued that “the pope ought, as he formerly was, to be subject to Caesar.” The monarch would then employ “doctors and worshipers of the divine law” to interpret the Bible. Martin Luther also called for the German princes to wrest ecclesial power away from corrupt bishops and the Roman pontiff, and grant him unequaled interpretive authority. Indeed, Luther asked the prince of Saxony to expel fellow reformer Andreas Bodenstein von Karlstadt because of the latter’s radical teachings. Around the same time, Machiavelli viewed the biblical text as material for furthering secular political ends.

All of these men influenced the court of English King Henry VIII, who recognized that the Reformation offered an opportunity to consolidate his political power. Thus, he pursued the Act of Supremacy in 1534 to grant him “supreme” headship over the Church of England, followed by the dissolution of monasteries, closure of shrines, and seizure of Church wealth. His King’s Book then declared that individuals must be subject to the “particular church” of the region in which they live, and obey the “Christian kings and princes” to whom they are subject.

Other Englishmen would further endorse this thinking. In Leviathan, Thomas Hobbes asserts that there is only “one chief Pastor” who is “according to the law of Nature. . .the civil sovereign.” Hobbes also rejected many of the supernatural elements of Scripture, as well as Heaven and Hell. John Locke, dismayed by the violence and distemper caused by the English Civil War, endorsed a state-controlled church whose most important feature would be “toleration,” since religious sentiments were private matters “of the mind.” For Locke, Jesus was ultimately a political messiah whose teachings focused on the perpetuation of a “civil morality.”

There are many other actors in this torrid tale – Baruch Spinoza, J. Richard Simon, John Toland – but enough is clear from the above to appreciate the consequences of these religio-political trends. Proto-Reformers called for dethroning the Catholic hierarchy’s supremacy over biblical interpretation. The Reformers, relying on princes and kings, put that wish into practice. And political philosophers and state-sanctioned scholars normalized it. Wherever the Catholic Church ceased to exert ecclesial authority, the state took up the reins.

There has always been this tension between Church and state. St. Ambrose excommunicated the emperor Theodosius because of his execution of 7,000 citizens of Thessalonica. Pope Gregory VII excommunicated the Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV because of a dispute over investiture. And Thomas Becket’s resistance to English King Henry II’s attempts to control the Church resulted in his murder at Canterbury Cathedral.

There is actually something healthy about this tension: when the state and the Church both operate strong spheres of power and influence, they serve as checks upon one another. Kings and governments cannot pursue any policy without risking moral condemnation from ecclesial leadership that will undermine their popular support. And Church corruption and nepotism can be used by secular authorities eager to usurp power.

Hahn’s and Wiker’s history tracks the growing imbalance in favor of the state, a disparity whose roots can be traced back to the late Medieval period. The ubiquitous promotion of Biblical interpretations that serve secular, liberal political agendas related to sex and race is only the latest manifestation of this centuries-old trend. To reverse it requires a return to a more ancient understanding that the Bible is, before all else, the book of the Church, rather than the state or its acolytes in the media or the academy. Catholics need to support and celebrate churchmen who appreciate and seek to realize that essential mission.
