Washington Passes Bill Allowing Children to Legally Be Taken From Parents if they Don’t Consent to Gender Mutilation

Even Mengele did his vicious medical mutilation experiments in secret. The Democrats are mandating and  legalizing them – enforced minor sterilization, sexual mutilation surgery for minors. What’s next, imprisoning those who oppose?

Washington Passes Bill Allowing Children to Legally Be Taken From Parents if Parents Don’t Consent to Gender Transition

By Chris, April 14, 2023:

A new bill passed in the state of Washington seeks to undermine parental rights by allowing “shelters” to provide gender transition medical services to minors without parental consent.

Senate Bill 5599, sponsored by Sen. Marko Liias, will allow certified shelters to contact the Department of Children, Youth and Families instead of parents, for children seeking reproductive health services or gender-affirming care.

Many argue that this bill could lead to abuse and exploitation of minors, as it creates a potential avenue for predators to take advantage of vulnerable children who may be seeking shelter or medical services. This could also have long-term consequences on the mental and physical health of children who may not have the maturity or capacity to make informed decisions about their healthcare.

Others have also pointed out that the government should not be involved in providing gender-affirming care to minors, and that such decisions should be left to parents and medical professionals.

Ukraine’s Nazi Problem Gets Worse: Kyiv City Council Set to Name Street After SS Official

Ukraine’s Dark History of Nazi Collaboration and Animus Toward Israel

  • Ukraine was an unapologetic supporter of the Nazis and has historically been a bastion of antisemitism.
  • Ukraine has consistently voted against Israel at the U.N. and supported Israel’s enemies.
  • The Ukrainian government honored two Third Reich collaborators and denied the mass murderer status of one of them.
  • One Nazi collaborator extolled by Ukraine is lionized with a statue in Lviv and multiple eponymous streets.
  • The Neo-Nazi Azov battalion, which has been recruiting and training American citizens, is fully integrated into the Ukrainian Army.

There has been considerable concern since before the start of the war in Ukraine about the influence of National Socialists, or Nazis, there, and now it has gotten considerably worse. Rather than apologize for or at very least ignore the nation’s past ties to National Socialism, the city council in the nation’s capital of Kyiv is reportedly considering naming a street after a National Socialist collaborator who actually served in the SS during the Holocaust, Voldymyr Kubiyovych. Apparently the Ukrainian government is so certain that Western aid will continue that it feels no hesitation about flaunting its openness to National Socialism.

The Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday that according to Eduard Dolinsky, director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee, “a street in the Ukrainian capital will be renamed following a motion passed by the city council, and will bear the name of Volodymyr Kubiyovych, who during the Holocaust was heavily involved in the formation of the Waffen-SS Galizien, a Nazi military force made up of Ukrainian volunteers.”

This startling move comes after a “historical expert commission within the council had put forward several options for the renaming of what is currently Przhevalsky Street in Kyiv,” and several names were put to a public vote. “The option to rename the street after Volodymyr Kubiyovych has so far received a majority, with 31% of the vote, with the second and third highest options receiving just 18% and 10% respectively,” although this could change, as the voting remains open until Sunday. Then, “once the public vote is closed, the Kyiv City Council will then vote to approve renaming the street after Kubiyovych.”

This is an astonishingly bad idea for a number of reasons. Before the National Socialist invasion of the USSR, Kubiyovych “requested the creation of an autonomous state within Ukraine in which Poles and Jews would not be allowed to live.” Then, once the National Socialists had occupied much of Ukraine, Kubiyovych “took on a key role in the formation of the Waffen-SS Galizien, publicly announcing his willingness to take up arms and fight for the Nazi cause.”

Is this the hero Zelensky’s Ukraine needs? Is this the hero Zelensky’s Ukraine wants?

None of this comes as any surprise to longtime Ukraine watchers. The independent journalism site Kanekoa News reported as long ago as last June that “on October 16, 2019, the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee’s counterterrorism subpanel, Rep. Max Rose (NY), led a letter signed by forty Democrats asking the State Department why they had not placed Ukraine’s Azov Battalion on the U.S. list of ‘foreign terrorist organizations’ (FTOs).” The irony couldn’t be richer, for in October 2022, the New York Times, that reliable organ of far-Left opinion, refers to “Ukraine’s celebrated Azov Battalion,” and claims that “the group’s defense of the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol — the southern port city decimated by Russian forces in the first months of the war — has become a powerful symbol of the suffering inflicted by Russia and the resistance mounted by Ukraine.”

Every last Democrat who condemned the Azov Battalion likely reads and respects the Times, and every last one of them also would likely prefer us all to forget that they once likened the Azov Battalion to the Islamic State (ISIS) and noted that it “openly welcomes neo-Nazis into its ranks.” The Democrats’ 2019 letter added that “the 115th Congress of the United States stated in its 2018 omnibus spending bill that ‘none of the funds made available by this act may be used to provide arms, training or other assistance to the Azov Battalion.’” But that was when Volodymyr Zelensky was widely regarded as some kind of ally or tool of the Left’s Emmanuel Goldstein of the day, Donald Trump; after all, the first Stalinist show trial impeaching the America-First president took place over a phone call to Zelensky. So it was in the Democrats’ interest at that time to play up the National Socialist element in Ukraine, just as it is in their interests now to pretend that element doesn’t exist.

The Democrats’ letter even declared “Azov has been recruiting, radicalizing, and training American citizens for years according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” Yet now it seems as if there is no limit to the taxpayer billions that must be funneled to these gallant Ukrainian defenders of freedom. Is anyone exercising any kind of oversight at all? Is Azov still “recruiting, radicalizing, and training American citizens”? Is our taxpayer money now being used to fund such activities?

One thing is certain: the full extent of the ties between Ukraine and the posturing, self-righteous, desperately corrupt, hypocritical and self-serving U.S. Democrat establishment is not publicly known, and may never be known. But what we do know should have brought that entire establishment crashing down years ago.

A Trans Mohammad Trading Card is Unacceptable to Leftists Who Often Write of a Trans Jesus

I just created my eighth Mohammad trading card, a Trans Mohammad trading card, in the face of the trans madness that the left has unleashed on the world. And trans madness it is, as even in the face of one trans terrorist after another murdering innocents, leftists skip right over the dead bodies and push trans as if nothing happened. And Biden, right after the latest trans terrorist murdered innocents, including children, declared a “Transgender Day of Visibility” at a time where there’s nothing more visible than trans. And it’s been going on for years, with The Huffington Post publishing an article in 2016 titled Jesus: The First Transgender Man, because they know that the pleasure they get from mocking Christianity is as deep as the fear they would have over publishing an article titled Mohammad: The First Transgender Man.

And I’ve been told by leftists who hate religion that I “shouldn’t mock religion,” which is their gutless way of saying that I shouldn’t mock Islam. And then I’m told by both leftists and Muslims, in a world where Muslims have murdered human beings over cartoons, that I shouldn’t be “insulting a religion”. Those who tell me that I should refrain from drawing Mohammad in order to show respect to Islam, in the face of savages who’ve murdered over Mohammad cartoons, are savages.

And I’m sure that the Ottawa school board’s “gender consultant” who calls Jesus a “drag queen” for wearing a “dress,” a.k.a. religious robes, would say the same about Mohammad, who wore religious robes. No, she never would. Leftists exclusively attack a religion whose followers don’t attack them, when the religion that most deserves criticism and condemnation is allowed to get away with mass murder without a word from them. It’s to be expected, but it doesn’t make it any less repugnant.

If you’re interested in my Trans Mohammad trading card, you can order it at my new website here.

In a World Obsessed with Feelings, Whose Feelings Matter?

In a society that eliminates meritocracy by shifting its metrics from achievement to feelings, whose feelings actually matter? Let’s find out.

Competence is the mother of self-esteem. We know this is true by simply observing the delight of young children as they learn to dress themselves, feed themselves, or sound out their first words and realize they can read! Each achievement increases the child’s competence and enhances his developing sense of self. Achievement makes little Johnny feel proud of himself and good about himself. Let’s consider what incentivizes competence and achievement, and what doesn’t. Let’s also consider the motivations for incentivizing competence and the motivations for discouraging it.

If you want to know the motive, look at the result. What made America great was its cultural roots in meritocracy. Our society awarded achievement with upward mobility. It was called the American Dream, and America was the land where dreams came true. In every sector of society, little Johnny was encouraged to become an independent, autonomous, rational adult, capable of living a life of ordered liberty in our constitutional republic. In other words, little Johnny was encouraged to grow up and perpetuate the American dream. Not anymore.

In the past, each of little Johnny’s achievements were rewarded with praise when he was a little boy. As he grew older he earned grades in school that marked his achievement. Then he competed in sports with friends, and games with family. His grades were awarded certificates of achievement or advanced placement. His sports achievements were awarded with trophies, and wins in family games were rewarded with more praise.

The competitions all served to incentivize achievement. As Johnny got older he competed for jobs and for advancement. Winning and losing were part of everyone’s private and public life. Meritocracy was society’s infrastructure, rooted in achievement. Those who lost were encourage to try harder, work harder, study more, and try again. In the 1970s, ABC’s Wide World of Sports announcer Jim McKay, immortalized the words, “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.”

His words described the drama caught on televised sports, but also applied to the everyday lives of everyday people. The association between individual achievement and self-esteem was unmistakable. Winning and losing were part of America’s infrastructure that anyone and everyone could identify with. Individual and team play were instrumental in teaching the valuable lessons of cooperation and teamwork. This is no small thing. Whether in a classroom, on a baseball field, or in orchestra hall, competition encouraged both individual and team competence and achievement.

“The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat” is a phrase that is all about feelings – everyone’s feelings. The phrase describes how it feels to win, and how it feels to lose. In the past, American culture supported a can-do spirit of encouragement, an ethos that insisted the agony of defeat need not remain. Anyone and everyone could experience the thrill of victory through hard work and practice. It was the same ethos that made America the greatest, freest, wealthiest country on Earth.

But we are a world at war, whether people acknowledge it or not. It is globalism v. the nation state. The globalist war on the nation state is a culture war fought without bullets, that targets the nation’s children, because children are the future of every society on Earth. In an unconscionable humanitarian hoax, the globalist social engineers advanced the deceitful narrative that little Johnny’s feelings must be protected.

A humanitarian hoax is the deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy. America’s humanitarian hucksters, under the guidance of the globalist social engineers, simply eliminated competition to “protect” little Johnny’s feelings. No winning. No losing. No grades. No competition. No incentive for achievement. No competence. No self-esteem. Here is the problem. Participation trophies do not incentivize achievement, they just blur the boundary between trying and doing.

By eliminating competition, the hucksters deincentivized competence, and denied children the thrill of victory. The humanitarian hoax of “no competition” resulted in a generation of fragile Johnny’s paralyzed by hurt feelings, without skills, self-esteem, or confidence in their own judgment. They became dependent upon “experts” to tell them what to do.

Competence, the ability to do something successfully or efficiently, is the foundation of a thriving society. Incompetence is its opposite. In human terms, we are born without the ability to surive, we are entirely dependent upon our caretakers to survive. So, human beings must rely on their caretakers, and trust they will teach us the necessary survival skills to live in our society of ordered liberty. Today, a battle is being fought in America over who is the rightful caretakers of our nation’s children.

Historically, it was the parents who had the responsibility to protect their children, and prepare them for life in our constitutional republic. Increasingly, the caretakers in America are no longer the parents, because the traditional family of stay-at-home Mom and working Dad is no longer the norm. Non-traditional families are reliant on daycare, preschools, babysitters, and government schools to provide child care and instruction for America’s children.

Since 1979, when Jimmy Carter established the Department of Education, the government began taking an increasingly active role in children’s education. Today, the National Education Association (NEA), the largest professional employee organization with over 3 million members, is a major political player. 97% of its millions of dollars in donations go to Democrat and liberal candidates. The politicization of American education is funded by labor unions as well as federal and state funding. A stunning, March 31, 2023 article by Daniel Greenfield, “Whose Children? Our Children,” asserts:

The shift from the single-income family to the two-income family with preschool encompassing children as young as 18 months and then to an ever more intensive chain of state educational institutions happened gradually enough that most parents thought it was their own idea. But what the Soviet Union and Communist China had failed to accomplish, happened in America.

Children, from even before they could talk, were being raised either directly by the state or by the institutions that it closely regulated. The unintended consequences of that, emotional fragility, a lack of healthy models for interpersonal relationships, and an obsession with ‘snitching’ on others that persists well into adulthood, were only the collateral damage. . . .

Such children raised by the state become adults who want the state to go on raising them. When they’re hungry, the state feeds them, when they’re cold, the state shelters them and when they’re unhappy, the state tells them whom to blame. When their relationships fall apart or when their feelings are hurt, they turn to the state to soothe them with a dose of revenge.

The infantilization of America is a leftist/globalist weapon of mass destruction. The American Dream has been replaced with regressive dreams for eternal childhood. The Soviet Union and Communist China share the collectivist ideology that places the state above the individual, and what is good for the state above what is good for the individual. Communism is a supremacist replacement ideology no matter what it is named. America has increasingly adopted its collectivist “ethic” and its self-destructive Marxist messaging in politicized education and political medicine. Why is this a problem?

The battle over who is the rightful caretaker of America’s children is a battle over ideologies. The Biden regime has eliminated meritocracy, and stopped incentivizing competence, competition, achievement, success, independence, upward mobility, and the thrill of victory in obtaining the American Dream. Instead, the regime has incentivized eternal childhood, incompetence, and lifelong dependence upon the government. The objective is to destabilize and destroy America’s infrastructure of family, seen as a competing ideology, and collapse the country internally. To “build back better” one must destroy what exists.

The globalist attack on America is being advanced by the radical leftist Biden regime, and its unparalleled race to the bottom. Eliminating competition does not save little Johnny from hurt feelings, or save big Johnny from the agony of defeat. Eliminating competition deliberately disincentivizes achievement and denies feelings of self-esteem. It produces a society of incompetent, dependent, childlike, fragile citizens who are very easy to manipulate and control, precisely the goal of a caretaker government.

Substituting compliance for competence is collapsing America from within. So, in the end, Johnny’s feelings don’t matter at all. Little Johnny is the target of the avaricious managerial state, and being groomed to become a permanently dependent, unthinking, unproductive, drone for the globalist elite – a worker bee. In a world obsessed with feelings, the only people whose feelings count are the globalist elite, because the elite always take care of the elite.

Planned Parenthood And Rachel Levine Partnered Up To Peddle Cross-Sex Hormones, Emails Show

  • Planned Parenthood, now a major provider of cross-sex hormones, collaborated with Rachel Levine and several LGBT groups and gender clinics while establishing programs to administer hormones, according to emails obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. 
  • Levine’s assistant connected the local Planned Parenthood affiliate with a transgender clinic to set up an observation and learn about operations and the referral process, and other members of Levine’s Transgender Health Working Group celebrated the clinic’s eventual administration of hormones. 
  • “Trans-identifying kids are cash cows, and they are kept on the hook for the foreseeable future in terms of follow-up appointments, bloodwork, meetings, etc., whereas abortions are (hopefully) a one-and-done situation,” a former “reproductive health assistant” for a Planned Parenthood clinic previously told Abigail Shrier.

Planned Parenthood collaborated with now-Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, along with gender clinics and LGBT groups, in its effort to provide cross-sex hormones at its clinics, according to documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Levine, who was acting secretary of health for Pennsylvania in 2017, ran a working group of medical providers and LGBT activists called the Transgender Health Working Group, which included representatives from Planned Parenthood, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) gender clinic and the Mazzoni Center. Levine’s office played an active role in connecting a local Planned Parenthood affiliate with transgender clinics throughout the year it began offering hormones, documents obtained through public records requests show.

The collaboration was part of a broader push from Levine’s office to promote cross-sex treatments that coincided with a meteoric rise in state funding for the procedures, including for children. Six years later, Levine is now a high-ranking Biden official with power to steer federal policy on health care.

“This is such a dangerous ideology, far from any form of health care or medical science,” PA Family communications director Dan Bartkowiak told the DCNF. “Anyone responsible for overseeing the push for more children permanently harmed by these drugs and irreversible surgeries should not be in public office, let alone be given promotion to higher office.”

Levine’s secretary, Sarah Boateng, coordinated with Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania (PPSP) in February 2017 to arrange an observation session at the Mazzoni Center, a Philadelphia-based group offering cross-sex medical treatments, in order to learn about operations and referrals for clinics offering hormones, according to the emails. PPSP had worked with other Planned Parenthood clinics offering hormones, but it was particularly interested in learning from Mazzoni because of its high volume of patients, according to the emails.

“We’re still crossing our fingers about Mazzoni. The volume of daily trans heath [sic] visits at a PP affiliate is low and we fear we’d go and only see a visit or two,” the PPSP worker wrote in the email to Boateng.

By July 2017, PPSP had begun offering hormones at two Pennsylvania clinics, and Levine had visited their offices ahead of the launch, according to the emails.

“Staring this month two Planned Parenthood locations will offer transgender health services, a location in Center City Philadelphia and a location in Pottstown, PA,” Boateng wrote to the working group on July 7. “Dr. Levine and I had a chance to visit their Philadelphia location prior to the launch and we very impressed with the significant planning, training and care they took in developing their program.”

Levine responded that it was “great news” that the Planned Parenthood clinics had begun administering hormones, and CHOP gender clinic co-founder Linda Hawkins offered to collaborate with the group in the same thread.

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Gender and Sexuality Development Program offers medical interventions for children seeking gender transitions as young as eight years old, including surgical referrals at age 14. The clinic also partnered with schools in the state to train teachers to use children’s preferred pronouns and keep gender identity issues hidden from parents.

The exact extent of PPSP’s growth in patient visits following this collaboration remains unclear, although its website states that there’s currently a six to eight month wait list for new “gender-affirming care” patients.

PPSP has a policy against prescribing hormones to minors because it requires mental health services and sometimes legal services, although they are considering offering hormones to those under 18 in the future, according to their website.

PPSP continued its involvement with Levine’s LGBT working group throughout 2017, and the group was slated to appear at least four meetings that fall, along with LGBT advocacy groups and gender clinics including the CHOP clinic and the Mazzoni Center, according to emails reviewed by the DCNF. Discussion topics for these meetings included physician training guidelines, appropriate signage within clinics, policy on transgender military participation, “Transgender 101” and “Penn State Hershey – increased access.”

Planned Parenthood is now one of the largest providers of cross-sex hormones in the U.S. A former “reproductive health assistant” reported that the small town Planned Parenthood clinic she worked at saw one to two teen girls each day seeking cross-sex hormones, and that gender transitions for young people brought in more consistent long-term revenue than abortions, according to journalist Abigail Shrier.(RELATED: ‘Paranoia’: Transgender Gun Community Features Fears Of ‘Genocide’, Mental Illness)

“Trans-identifying kids are cash cows, and they are kept on the hook for the foreseeable future in terms of follow-up appointments, bloodwork, meetings, etc., whereas abortions are (hopefully) a one-and-done situation,” she told Shrier.

Planned Parenthood’s national and local offices have focused intensely on transgender issues in recent years, with a particular focus on opposing state-level restrictions on children’s cross-sex medical procedures.

Levine’s tenure in the Pennsylvania government ran from 2015 to 2021, during which state spending on cross-sex medical procedures for those 18 and under rose about 5,000%, according to public records obtained by the PA Family Institute. Levine helped bring this to fruition by collaborating with various groups to successfully block state legislation that would have blocked taxpayer funding for child sex changes in 2017.

“The sad reality is, from 2015 to 2021, Pennsylvania saw a nearly 5000% increase in spending on ‘gender-affirming’ care for children 18 and under. That’s evidence of a priority being made by our state officials to harm children with this type of dangerous ideology,” Bartkowiak told the DCNF.

Levine’s time in President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services has been similarly marked by a push for child gender transitions, including official guidance endorsing cross-sex biomedical interventions, such as surgeries, for children.

Levine, Planned Parenthood and PPSP did not respond to the DCNF’s requests for comment.

Disney Film Features Pope Francis with Porn Creator

Pontiff approves Tinder, says Catholic sexual catechesis is ‘still in diapers’.


VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) A radical pro-LGBT media giant has released a controversial film featuring Pope Francis in conversation with 10 young adults — including a porn creator, a Catholic pro-abortion activist and a nun who lost her faith.

The Catholic Church’s catechesis on sex is “still in diapers,” Francis tells his interlocutors in an 83-minute Spanish documentary titled Amen: Francis Responds, featured by Disney+ on its streaming service on the Wednesday of Holy Week.

“We Catholics have not always had a mature catechesis on sex,” the pontiff noted when asked about the morality of masturbation.

“But the expression of love is probably the central point of sexual activity. Anything that drags it to you and takes it away from that direction detracts from your sexual activity,” Francis explains. “Sex has its own dynamics; it has its own raison d’être.”

Francis listened attentively to Alessandra, a Colombian, who argued that she is justified in creating pornography and selling it on the internet because it allows her to value herself more and spend more time with her daughter.

The pope praises the potential of social networks as a tool to facilitate communication and establish human relationships but insists that “the morality of the media depends on how you use it.”

“If you sell drugs through the network, you are intoxicating young people, you are causing damage, you are fomenting a crime. If you establish mafia contacts through the network to create social situations, it is immoral,” Francis maintains.

Milagros, from Argentina, tells the pope that she is a Catholic catechist and, at the same time, a proud pro-abortion activist. She handed Francis a green scarf inscribed with this slogan: “Free, safe and voluntary abortion.”

The pope accepts her gift and tells the youth how he has always urged his priests to be pastoral in accompanying women who have had abortions by “not asking too many questions and being merciful, as Jesus is.”

Francis added that abortion must be viewed scientifically and objectively because any embryology book teaches that at conception the DNA is already outlined, and the organs are all already defined. “So it’s not a cluster of cells that come together but a human life,” he replied.

“Is it permissible to eliminate a human life to solve the problem? Or if I go to a doctor, is it permissible to hire a hit man to eliminate a human life to solve a problem?” the pontiff asks the young adults. “It’s one thing to accompany the person who did it, quite another to justify the act.”

Celia, a Catholic girl who identifies as nonbinary, asks Francis if he knows what a nonbinary person is and if there is space in the Church for sexual and gender diversity.

“Every person is a child of God, every person. God does not reject anyone; God is father. And I have no right to kick anyone out of the Church. Not only that, my duty is also to always welcome. The Church cannot close the door to anyone, to nobody,” the pope responded.

Francis attacks those who use the Bible to justify excluding LGBT persons from the Church: “These people are infiltrators who take advantage of the Church for their personal passions, for their personal narrow-mindedness. It is one of the corruptions of the Church.”

Lucía, an ex-nun from Peru, explains why she lost her faith in Christ after suffering years of abuse in a religious community. She tells the pope she is happier now that she is neither a Catholic nor a believer. On the screen, images of her embracing another girl scroll by.

“This doesn’t scandalize me,” the pope tells her. “This bad place, this place of corruption, this convent dehumanizes me. I go back to where I started to seek the humanity of my roots.”

The tension in the film increases when Juan, a Spaniard, tells Francis he was abused at the age of 11 by an Opus Dei numerary who worked as a teacher in his school. The perpetrator was convicted by a civil court but with a reduced sentence.

Francis is taken aback when Juan hands him the pope’s own personal reply addressed to the young man’s father, in which Francis told him that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith would deal with the case at the canonical level.

The young man, who confesses he is no longer a believer, tells the pope that the CDF has decided that the teacher should be reinstated, exempting him from responsibility.

Stunned when he is challenged by the young adults over clerical sex abuse, the pontiff agrees to review the case: “These cases of abuse of minors do not become statute barred. And if they become statute barred over the years, I automatically remove that statute of limitations. I don’t want this to ever go statute barred.”

Maria is an exception to the nonbelievers in the documentary. She tells the pope that she is proud of her Catholic faith. Addressing the other nine young adults who constantly disagree with her in the film, Maria explains how her relationship with Christ gives her life meaning.

Francis listens to her attentively and admiringly but warns her that her journey will be difficult: “The testimony of faith you give touches my heart because it takes courage to say what you are saying in this meeting. Thanks for your testimony.”

“I don’t want to scare you, but gather your strength and prepare for the test. Continue to do these things well, but when the test comes, don’t be frightened, because even in the moment of darkness, the Lord is there, Who is hidden there,” the pope assures her.

When asked about relationships, Francis assures the young adults that using dating apps like Tinder to meet potential partners is “normal,” despite the designers of the app promoting it as a tool for married people to engage in secret adulterous relationships.

Theologian Larry Chapp blasted the pope for responding to the questions in the documentary with “a melted gelato of word salad deflection.”

Chapp wrote:

The Pontiff, probably out of a desire to truly engage the young people in a pastoral manner, comes across as a pastor who is pandering to his audience — and in so doing has “made a mess” of the Church’s clear teachings on these matters.

Faithful Catholics have questioned why the pope consented to be filmed in a documentary for Disney, an organization that has intensified its war on the traditional family in its promotion of LGBT ideology.

Disney threatened to block programs in support of the Boy Scouts because of the organization’s earlier policy that prohibited gay squadron leaders.

Provita & Familia, an Italian Catholic pro-life organization, has issued a petition asking Disney to stop LGBT propaganda in its cartoons.

Karey Burke, the president of the Disney General Entertainment Content and the “mother of a transgender child and of a pansexual child,” said she hoped that soon “50% of Disney cartoon characters would be LGBT.”

In February, Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., signed a bill depriving the Walt Disney Company of control of a special tax district surrounding Walt Disney World due to its opposition to his so-called “don’t say gay” law.

Islamic Republic of Iran: Prison guards break kneecaps of 70-year-old woman who participated in protests

Iran’s Islamic regime has only one tool, the tool that the Qur’an gives it: terror.

“Make ready for them all that you can of force and of warhorses, so that by them you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy…” (Qur’an 8:60)

Iranian guards ‘break kneecaps of pensioner, 70, during interrogation in hellhole jail after she was jailed for anti-governmental protests

by Christian Oliver, Daily Mail, April 11, 2023:

A 70-year-old grandmother has reportedly had her kneecaps broken by Iranian prison officials in Tehran’s notorious Evin jail.

Human rights campaigner Mahvash Sabet Shahriari was said to have been under interrogation by officials when she was inflicted with the barbaric punishment.

She had been serving a 10-year prison sentence in Evin jail for participating in anti-government protests.

The news of the attack emerged from independent Iranian media which said the activist’s knees had been broken by an interrogator during questioning.

Evin jail has a brutal reputation for its inhumane living conditions and merciless treatment of its detainees, with prisoners frequently subject to beatings and torture.

Mahvash Sabet Shahriari was said to have been under interrogation by officials when she was inflicted with the barbaric punishment.

Frud Sabet, son of Shahriari, said he was yet to hear of his mother’s condition since her initial trial.

He told RFERL Radio Farda: ‘The family is very worried about her health. We don’t know where she is, and we don’t know if she’s alive.’

Shahriari, a poet, was seized last summer as part of the Iranian regime’s repression of the Baha’i community that saw several community leaders detained.

The Bahaʼi faith is a religion that counts up to eight million members in the world….

Pro-Growth Policies Have Americans Flocking To These States

As Americans continue to pay more for groceries and gas, most have little appetite for higher taxes. That didn’t stop President Joe Biden from recently pushing a $4.7 trillion federal tax increase in his new budget proposal, targeting American businesses, families, and energy producers.

The tone-deaf call for federal tax hikes comes amid record setting federal tax collections last year, totaling $4.9 trillion. Washington can’t quit its spending addiction either, as the national debt is approaches a previously unfathomable $32 trillion.

There is, however, hope to be had across the 50 states – the laboratories of democracy. This legislative session, a growing number of states are countering D.C.’s big government policies by implementing pro-growth and pro-worker policies at the state level. And that’s the smart approach. As the latest Census data reveals, millions of Americans are voting with their feet by moving to states with more freedom and more opportunity.

These states are highlighted in the newly released 16th edition of Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index. The 15 economic-policy variables used to rank the economic outlook of states have proven over time to be influential for state competitiveness and growth. Since 2007, our research has documented how cutting taxes, paying down debt, and maintaining free-market policies have significantly helped states attract new residents.

With that in mind, it’s no surprise the top five states in economic outlook for 2023 are Utah, North Carolina, Arizona, Idaho, and Oklahoma. The least competitive states may not come as a surprise either: Illinois, New Jersey, Minnesota, Vermont — with New York dead last.

For 16 years in a row, Utah has earned the top ranking, thanks to its pro-taxpayer policies. During these years, the Beehive State has created a flat personal income tax (and continued to chip away at its rate, which is now under 5 percent), reformed its public pension system to the benefit of both workers and taxpayers, and kept property taxes in check with its innovative Truth-in-Taxation law.

Down south, North Carolina is ranked second in the nation for economic outlook. Thanks to of historic tax reform in 2013, which significantly lowered and flattened income taxes, North Carolina improved from its ranking of 26th overall in 2011 and attracted more than 600,000 new residents in the past decade. Once North Carolina completes its phaseout of the state business income this decade, the sky is the limit for the Tarheel State.

Just up Interstate-95 from Raleigh, the Virginia Comeback story is underway in Richmond. Last year, Virginia received its lowest rank ever at 24th overall – the result of a long decline brought on by resting on its laurels. However, the 2022 legislative session was productive in creating tax cuts for Virginians. Thanks to the leadership of free market legislators and Governor Glenn Youngkin, Virginia reversed a nearly decade long losing streak and climbed an impressive six spots to 18th in this year’s economic outlook rankings.

Kentucky was another bright spot this year, jumping an impressive seven spots to 27th overall. Over the last 15 years, Kentucky has moved up a total of 17 places, due to its creation of a flat personal income tax in 2019 and its continued progress cutting rates in recent years.

On the other hand, New York is once again ranked 50th for economic outlook due to its punishing tax burdens, overspending, and heavy-handed regulatory policies. The Empire State has also hemorrhaged more than 1.7 million residents in the past decade – and more than 300,000 in the past year alone.

Massachusetts fell four places in the rankings this year to 37th, after voters approved a teachers union-backed ballot measure in November that changed the personal income tax structure from a flat tax to a progressive tax. Massachusetts had been a 5% flat tax state, but now will add a 4% surcharge for those earning more than $1 million, creating a new top income tax rate of 9%. This marks the return of Taxachusetts, and the state will struggle in the competitive New England region, where neighboring New Hampshire boasts no sales tax and no personal income tax on wages.

While the tax-and-spend crowd in D.C. pushes bigger government, many states are leading the way by promoting economic growth through lower taxes, responsible budgeting and better policies that benefit the American people. Though some states like California and New York continue to teach what not to do, others like Utah and North Carolina are building stronger state economies and limiting the damage done to the national economy by Washington. As Rich States, Poor States reveals, Americans will continue to vote with their feet towards these freedom loving states.

The Biden Regime Wars

Americans who serve their government in the civil or uniformed services take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Increasingly, our foreign enemies have identified themselves, even if the current American regime (and I use that word purposefully) is loath to acknowledge them.

I speak about them nearly every week on Prophecy Today Weekend. They are Russia, China, Iran, and to a lesser extent, North Korea.

LISTEN:

But most Americans, myself included, are loath to speak of domestic enemies, perhaps out of an inherent optimism that we live in the greatest country the world has ever known, where even Socialists have a hard time eradicating our God-given freedoms.

But those enemies exist. And we saw two of them on display this week.

First is the 21-year-old Airman First class, junior rank, Jack Teixeira, the person identified by federal law enforcement as responsible for the “Pentagon Leaks.”

His defense attorney said he was just “a dumb kid showing off to his friends” – and that is probably true.

And while some of us might applaud him for revealing the lies of the Biden regime regarding Ukraine, nevertheless he did immense damage to our nation, its legitimate intelligence-gathering capabilities, and its credibility. (You have to wonder about his superiors, who gave such broad access to highly classified documents to such a young and obviously immature individual.)

The second domestic enemy that revealed themselves recently took that very oath I mentioned at top. They are the federal and state prosecutors such as Alvin Bragg in New York and Erik L. Barron in Baltimore, who have weaponized our criminal justice system to go after political opponents of the regime.

It seems nearly every week, we learn of a new case that reminds me we are Back in the USSR,” where Leventiy Beria told Stalin, “show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.”

They are doing it against President Trump. And this week, they launched a vicious, clearly politically-motivated prosecution against a conservative county sheriff who who has stood for they people and their 2nd amendment rights against the federal gun-grabbers.

Tim Scott Blasts Hakeem Jeffries For ‘Inflammatory,’ ‘Disgusting’ Smears of Black Conservatives

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina slammed race-mongering radical Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York for ugly comments about black conservatives that the House Democrat leader made as a college student.

Scott, a rising star in the GOP and a black Republican, blasted Jeffries for calling black conservatives “right-wing opportunists” and “House Negroes” in a college paper he wrote.

In a recent CNN story centered on him using racial politics during his college days at Binghamton University in upstate New York, Jeffries defended his antisemitic uncle Leonard Jeffries and called black conservatives “token” and “opportunists.”

CNN reported Jeffries, as a member of the executive board for the Black Student Union, had invited his uncle to speak on campus after he made inflammatory comments in the early 1990s, such as “rich Jews” being in the African slave trade and about Jewish executives in the film industry.

Additionally, CNN found a previously unreported college editorial in which he defended his uncle and the Nation of Islam‘s ragingly antisemitic leader Louis Farrakhan, explaining that the two were unfairly targeted by “white media” for challenging “the longstanding distortion of history.”

“The House Negro of the slavery era and the Black conservative of today are both opportunists interested in securing some measure of happiness for themselves within the existing social order,” Jeffries wrote.

Tim Scott said, “You listen to those comments that, as inflammatory and disgusting as they really are, you’re talking about African Americans not being able to think for ourselves. When our leaders suggest that we cannot, that’s always heading in the wrong direction.”

Scott, who launched a presidential exploratory committee this week as he moves closer to jumping into the 2024 White House race, emphasized that “one of the things that I hope we find along the way is that we’ll quit demonizing people who look like us, who disagree with us.”

Portraying Trump Supporters As “Domestic Terrorists” & “White Supremacists”

In a January 28, 2021 interview with MSNBC, Jeffries characterized supporters of former President Trump as “domestic terrorists and the white supremacists.” Asked “what happens if there’s no accountability for him or the rioters” who had occupied the Capitol on January 6, the congressman replied: “[P]art of the lesson of the first impeachment trial for him was that he could shoot holes in the Constitution on Pennsylvania Avenue and get away with it because Senate Republicans were prepared to bury their heads in the sand…. [E]very available option to hold him accountable for his actions should be undertaken…. And we’re not going to be cowed by the domestic terrorists and the white supremacists and the enemy combatants who want to stop us in our tracks. That would be giving in to them, and that’s not going to happen.”

Conservative Group Rolls Out ‘Woke Alerts’ to Combat Activist Corporate America

Counter Punch” written by Floyd Brown, 40 year political consultant and Owner/Publisher Western Journal, discusses that America is about to go onto life support unless Americans arise and defend this exceptional nation. I enjoyed a conversation with Floyd on my show ArizonToday.com.

WATCH:

Our founders gave us a gift if we would keep it. Well…start keeping, begin punching back to the Marxist demonic alteration taking place before our eyes. Make no mistake, and do not simply write off my comment as reactionary or conspiracy theory or merely conservative politics. The United States of America has been targeted to collapse into the global community, the New-World Order where national sovereignty is a memory.

For those still wearing face masks, leave them alone, don’t even waste your time they are already indoctrinated and will be among the first to load into train cars for relocation. For those who think the WOKE philosophy will simply go away, wear out, join those wearing masks. Counter Punch…Now! Find a few others who believe the same as you, and begin to push back in creative and even financial ways. The Budweiser Company has lost over $6 Billion thus far as they proudly tout their new transsexual spokesman, I mean spokeswoman; sorry…woke transexual non-homophobic individual pushing Budweiser. Guess what? Some proud Americans have punched back, beginning a new beer that proudly states it is truly good and tasty, all American and non-transsexual. Some Americans had enough!! They Counter Punched!

The article below will take you to still another group no longer willing to sit back, rationalize and watch as America becomes a memory, a country of the past.

I am not so much challenging you as I am forewarning you. Stand up and begin to Counter Punch. Hurt them in the pocket book. Hurt them by picketing their homes, recalling them where possible, alert a network not to shop here or there, not to buy this product or that. Wake-up America now! We are in similar straights as the colonists in 1775 who were up against phenomenal heavy forces and odds to succeed. Wake-up America or realize the game plan is well under way to collapse the United States into something you will not ever be able to recognize, a country where freedom is dictated by the Elite and you will be free to either go along with the Elite or be killed by the Elite – your choice, your freedom to choose.

Conservative group rolls out ‘Woke Alerts’ to combat activist corporate America

By Ramsey Touchberry – The Washington Times – Friday, April 14, 2023

The conservative advocacy organization Consumers’ Research has launched a text notification system dubbed “Woke Alerts” to inform users when they believe a major company is engaging in liberal political activism.

The service is the latest strategy by the group, which brands itself as the leading anti-woke crusader, to combat what they call “woke capitalism” by shining a spotlight on corporations believed to be bending to a liberal agenda.

Consumers’ Research Executive Director Will Hild told The Washington Times the goal of “Woke Alerts” is not necessarily to tell Americans which companies to boycott, but rather to “arm consumers with the best information so that they can make decisions that are in line with their values.”

“We want to make sure we’re educating people when we see a company take a turn like we saw with Bud Light,” Mr. Hild said. “We can give them a way that they can know and avoid that company and stop giving them their money.”

The group is putting six figures behind the service. Last year, it launched a seven-figure culture war battle against the world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock, over its support of climate-conscious investing known as ESG. Consumers’ Research has also targeted corporations such as Coca-Cola, Nike, American Airlines and Disney in recent anti-woke advocacy campaigns.

What qualifies for Woke Alerts will be subjective and is not defined by any set standard of criteria. Mr. Hild said Americans who subscribe for the free service will see a company be put on blast in their text messages if it appears to be pandering to liberal culture war issues.

He cited Bud Light’s recent ad campaign featuring transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney as an example of what would trigger a notification.

“If we see a company that is instead of focusing on serving their consumers is cozying up to woke activists or woke politicians, then that will trigger a Woke Alert,” Mr. Hild.

How many American’s think LGBTQ+ is a new fad? It is not.

Mind Control is Better Than Bullets


How many  American’s think LGBTQ + is a new fad? It is not. It is an ancient action that was promoted in some form of theater/pup petering and was used to reinforce the desires of the ruler. Humans nature pushes the emotional button which says I have a desire to belong, to be accepted. So the leader will tell us what clothes to  wear, how to say the right words, act in the prescribed manner, follow the script or suffer the consequences…being canceled.

Being canceled on social media feels just like it did getting punched by the bully in school. You know in your heart the Elite are wrong, there is no such thing as climate change, you need CO2 and fossil fuels to live, the economy does suck, the border is wide open for your replacement, Covid and vaccines were lies, Donald Trump may not be as bad as you were told, inflation and lower wages are transitory all their programs are based on lies.

They are solving problems that they have created.

They are offering solutions that don’t work.

Propaganda works.

For years I have been saying that America is repeating the Roman Empire. Instead of sending the masses to the arena, we are sending them to the movies, video games or social media. Instead of clapping for the gladiators, we clap for the best performance. We become or supply prostitutes, Queen’s, Dancers,  and when everyone is drugged up or drunk, we sell our bodies. Not to worry if there is a baby from the distorted sex, we are told to have an abortion.    Ancient ritual  dictates that the subjects must sacrifice children aka abortion aka murder. Today the same ritual with a new name paid by the US taxpayer is called abortion. I call it murder We are paying for murder.   The Communist Elite made the populace dumb and compliant so we would accept their insane policies, designed to fail but be expensive.

We are repeating the Roman  Empire.

Is America worth saving?

What are you doing?

Arkansas House Urges Action on Terrorism on America’s Southern Border

It is often pointed out that Washington D.C. is out of touch—with the rest of America.

It’s not that elected officials in Washington don’t come up with good ideas; but between “The Swamp” running interference and leftist ideologues in the White House and Congress delaying or even killing legislation, so little seems to get done.

There are many people across America, including in Washington D.C., who understand the threats we face.

One of those is State Representative Marcus Richmond, a former Marine who serves as the House Majority Leader in the Arkansas House of Representatives. During the 2023 legislative session at the Arkansas state capitol in Little Rock, Richmond authored a resolution admonishing the U.S. government to do what so many Americans know is necessary.

House Resolution (HR) 1048 calls on the United States government to disrupt collaboration between drug cartels and terrorist organizations, declare fentanyl to be a weapon of mass destruction, and designate the Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.

Drug overdoses have killed more than 100,000 Americans over the past year. 66% of the overdose deaths in the past year were related to synthetic opioids like fentanyl.

The DEA reports that Mexican drug cartels, including the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, import dangerous raw materials from Communist China, use them to produce deadly synthetic opioids at low cost, and unlawfully transport those opioids into the United States.

Both the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel have expanded their deadly business into the United States.

These foreign drugs have created twin public health and national security crises of unparalleled magnitude.

Over the past decade, Mexican drug cartels have developed well-organized armed forces to protect their reprehensible trade from rivals, from the Mexican government and from the U.S. DEA.

The existence of the cartels’ armed forces just across our southwestern land border and the Mexican government’s inability to control these forces pose a threat to our national security far greater than a typical drug-trafficking enterprise.

The threat to our national security is made greater still by the known links between the Mexican drug cartels and jihadist terror organizations like Hezbollah, who have already killed Americans and intend to do our country harm.

The Mexican drug cartels are essentially conducting chemical warfare on everyday Americans, affecting every community, town, and city across America.

The cartels are importing a chemical agent — fentanyl — into the United States that endangers the safety of the American people

The same cartels that produce and traffic this dangerous chemical are also assassinating rivals and Mexican officials, ambushing and killing Americans at the border, and engaging in an armed insurgency against the Mexican government.

It has prompted a bipartisan group of 18 state attorneys general to call on the Biden administration to declare fentanyl a weapon of mass destruction.

The catastrophic loss of life is intolerable, yet it has received an anemic response from the federal government.

Now Arkansas has called for a change…

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE NINETY-FOURTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ARKANSAS:

THAT it is time to respond to these crises because our national security requires the United States Government to disrupt the collaboration between drug cartels and terrorist organizations.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the House of Representatives call on President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, and the United States Congress to treat fentanyl as the danger it truly is and declare it a weapon of mass destruction.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the House of Representatives request that the Sinaloa Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, and other similarly situated Mexican drug cartels be designated as foreign terrorist organizations under 8 U.S.C. § 1189.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT upon adoption, a copy of this resolution be provided to President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Speaker of the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, and the members of the Arkansas Congressional Delegation.

State Representative Richmond and the Arkansas House are to be commended on their strong stance. When it comes to matters of American national security, the security of our border, and the safety of our people, things are too important to be left up to Washington to fix… if they ever get around to it. More states need to follow Arkansas’ example and demand action on Fentanyl and the cartels.

Taking America for Granted

Shame on all the people who take America for granted.  Like the silly 21-year-old who leaked secret American military documents to video gamers online.  And shame on everyone else who fails to appreciate the magnificence of the Founders’ ideals – popular sovereignty, representative limited government, and individual rights.  Where would we be without those ideals?  Under the boot of a Putin or a Xi Jinping, that’s where.

Speaking of silly, shame on the Tennessee Democrats who proposed replacing the federal Columbus Day holiday with Super Bowl Monday.

Shame on Nancy Pelosi for saying Donald Trump has to prove his innocence, in complete contradiction to the constitutional principle people are innocent until proven guilty.

Shame on the Democrats who are trying to remove a statue of Lincoln who kept the Union together and freed the slaves.

Shame on Whoopi Goldberg who objected to House members saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

Shame on the California teacher who removed the American flag from her classroom and had her students pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag instead.

Shame on Tim Kaine’s wife for saying the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution enshrined slavery without mentioning amendments to the Constitution that got rid of the vestiges of slavery and perfected the Founders’ vision of liberty and justice for all.

Shame on the Florida Democrat who said exercising your Second Amendment right to bear arms is “fascism”.

And shame on the woman who trashed American citizenship as ‘racialized’, really just a white thing.

So, to all these people I say you better get a grip.  You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.  This is the best country on earth and lots of serious people before you have spent their time improving it for everyone instead of running their mouths.  Stop making fools of yourselves and showing us your ignorance when you have no idea what you would replace America with.

Our founding documents are based on classical liberalism, the most coherent, sustainable, and humane idea in the entire history of political thought.  You don’t have anything that can compete with it.  If you’re as mindless as I think you are, you don’t have anything at all in that empty head of yours.  Leave governance to serious people who have bothered to inform themselves on the principles of good governance and who have studied what happens when tyrants, mobs, and utopians succeed in taking over – blood flowing in the streets, that’s what.

You’re enabling them with your mindlessness and it’s gotta stop.  This is no video game.
