A New Candidate for Confiscator-in-Chief

Former Texas Congressman Robert Francis O’Rourke abandoned his run for President last week, once again leaving a void for the most strident anti-gun candidate seeking the Democrat nomination. Even before declaring his candidacy for President, California Representative Eric Swalwell raised the specter of banning AR-15s and similar firearms, forcing Americans to turn them in through a confiscation scheme mislabeled as a “mandatory buyback,” then “go[ing] after” resisters. He even famously “joked” about using nukes to enforce his scheme.

After Swalwell became the first candidate to bow out of the race when he failed to generate any noticeable poll numbers, O’Rourke stepped up to push the confiscation message.

Clearly, every Democrat that wants to run against Trump is anti-gun. The main difference among them, when it comes to semi-automatics, seems to be whether they want to ban their future production, ban them completely and confiscate them, or ban their future production and register those currently owned (presumably to make future confiscation easier).

Candidate O’Rourke staked out his strident position during the third Democrat Debate when he infamously declared, “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK47….” The former Congressman even seemed to double-down on his ban and confiscate scheme. He said during the fourth debate that if a gun owner doesn’t turn in a lawfully acquired firearm, “…then that weapon will be taken from them,” as well as suggesting they may face “other consequences from law enforcement.” He also told Joe Scarborough during an interview the day after the fourth debate that if someone did not turn over a banned semi-auto, “there would be a visit by law enforcement.”

Last week, an Iowa high school student confronted O’Rourke about his plan to ban AR-15s, the rifle the teen uses for hunting deer. The candidate feigned ignorance over the notion that people use the rifle for hunting deer, even though it is commonly used for taking such game.

Later in the week, at an event in Newtown, Conn., that was closed to the public and organized by groups promoting gun control, O’Rourke was again confronted. This time, a Newtown resident accused the candidate of trying to exploit the tragedy her town experienced to promote his anti-gun agenda.

O’Rourke must have finally seen the writing on the wall. He faced harsh criticism over his anti-gun extremism, even in what he may have thought would be “friendly” environments. He burned through an estimated $14 million in campaign funds, while poll after poll saw him stagnating in the low-to-mid single digits. And don’t forget he spent around $80 million last year to lose his U.S. Senate race against Senator Ted Cruz.

If he could not win a statewide race with that kind of money, what hope did he have of winning a national election?

Last Friday, the Texan answered that question when he pulled the plug on his latest campaign. But with O’Rourke now out of the race, will any Democrat candidate don the mantle of wannabe Confiscator in Chief?

On Monday’s episode of The View, while the cast was doing a postmortem on O’Rourke’s failed campaign, host Joy Behar chastised the former Texas Representative for revealing exactly what NRA has been saying for years is the ultimate goal of anti-gun extremists.

Perhaps as a warning to the remaining Democrat candidates, Behar stated, “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take them away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”

For a party that claims to support transparency, it seems odd to hear a Democrat like Behar offer such advice. Perhaps more concerning, however, would be to consider what else Democrat candidates for President might have in store for law-abiding gun owners that they do not want to publicly reveal until after next year’s election.

Of course, it is likely Behar’s advice will be followed. The top three candidates seeking the Democrat nomination seem to be set at Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and former Vice President Joe Biden, while South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has been showing signs of gaining some traction. All have rejected O’Rourke’s call for confiscation, at least openly, and at least for now.

But, with multiple sources now reporting that anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg is once again considering throwing his name into the already crowded Democrat field, it’s likely that anti-gun extremists won’t have to wait long for a new champion of confiscation. After all, he’ll be the only candidate who can tout his experience as a firearm confiscator.

Republicans Must Counter the Radical Socialist Democrats

“Socialism is when the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  When a person gets hungry, that’s socialism too.  Some might say that it’s when the workers own the means of production, but this is all really an elaborate plot for us wealthy folks to keep bread for ourselves.” –  Karl Marx

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” –  Winston Churchill

“The reason this country continues its drift toward socialism and big nanny government is because too many people vote in the expectation of getting something for nothing, not because they have a concern for what is good for the country.” – Lyn Nofziger (American journalist, conservative Republican political consultant and author)


Why, when socialists endorse the same collectivist ideas that have always led to tyranny, should we listen?  And why is the Republican party so weak in retaliating against it?  As I’ve stated time and again, the majority of Republicans are part of the same cabal as the Democrats.

Long ago old right conservative Republicans cherished both the U.S. Constitution and traditional morality, but those times have changed.  Most conservatives were led astray more than half a century ago.  They were deceived, not by overt liberalism/socialism, but by counterfeit conservatism which promoted liberal causes.  Many of them now support abortion, drugs, homosexuality, pornography, policing the world’s nations, the flagrant spending of tax dollars that has exponentially increased our debt, open borders and more.  They are part of the same globalist establishment as their counterparts in the Democratic Party.

As such, many republican officials at the highest levels of our federal government and Department of Justice breached the trust of the people in an attempt to undermine Trump’s presidency and remove him from office.

“Resistance” Began Early

The “destroy Trump coup” developed in the first 24 hours after the 2016 election following weeks of sometimes violent protests.  The anti-Trump movement realized that simply shouting and causing public nuisance and property damage wasn’t getting them what they wanted.  It didn’t take long for the members of the left to find impeachment was the best vehicle for their coup to drive the president from office.

Roughly five weeks before the presidential inauguration, Vanity Fair published an article by Emily Jane Fox headlined “Democrats are Paving the Way to Impeach Donald Trump.” They focused on the family business, the D.C. Trump hotel and possible personal financial improprieties which now includes his tax records for years before his presidency.

By the day of the inauguration, January 20, 2017, the impeachment hunger was great enough that the Washington Post headlined Matea Gold’s article “The Campaign to Impeach President Trump Has Begun.”  All of this disappeared after a few weeks when the fraudulent “Russian collusion” began, but now it’s back in full evil glory.

Schiff and Impeachment

The Democratic Party, now headed by House Intelligence Committee member, Adam Schiff, is running the “impeach Trump show” regarding the President’s legitimate and constitutional phone call to a foreign nation’s leader.  Can there be a more despicable two-faced liar than Adam Schiff, whether publicly reciting a transcript that he falsifies or even his cynical exploitation of his Congressional District’s large population of 70,000 Armenian-American voters whom he manipulates annually?

Schiff purposefully lied to the public about what President Trump said in the released transcript of his conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky.  Schiff read an entirely different Trump conversation to the American public in which he created a false narrative about what was said and later claimed his “pretend conversation by Trump with Zelensky” was just a parody.  This was no parody, and his false statements were purveyed to the American public by the right arm of the Democratic Socialists, the mainstream media and their flunkies.

The CIA traitorous whistleblower, who never listened to the President’s conversation is being sheltered and hidden by the Democratic Socialists.

Senator Rand Paul told Bret Baier that according to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, the sixth amendment guarantees anyone accused of a crime gets to face their accuser in court.  And the Fraternal Order of Police claim Congress is violating “one of the most basic rights afforded to American citizens” as they attempt a coup by using impeachment to remove President Trump. Link

Republicans Rise Up

Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) was the first to call out the attacks against our President by introducing a resolution to condemn and censor Rep. Adam Schiff.

Every House Republican signed onto Congressman Biggs’ resolution.  I was thrilled, and spoke with friends who all felt that Trump supporters wanted the Republicans to storm the secret meetings by Schiff being held in the basement and they did just that!  They all walked down to the basement and stormed an illegal and unconstitutional action by Schiff and his comrades who are still angry that their socialist candidate Hillary Clinton lost the election to outsider and populist American, Donald J. Trump.

Senator Rand Paul made us proud when he spoke at President Trump’s rally in Kentucky for pro-life Governor Matt Bevin.  Here’s what Senator Paul said,

President Trump has great courage, he faces down the fake media every day. But Congress needs to step up and have equal courage to defend the president.

Hunter Biden made $50K a month.  That’s the definition of corruption, and we know he got it only because of his family connections.

We also now know the name of the whistleblower.  The whistleblower needs to come before Congress as a material witness because he worked with Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs.  I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name!

And I say this to my fellow colleagues in Congress, to every Republican in Washington, step up and subpoena Hunter Biden and subpoena the whistleblower!

And I say to my colleagues, if shifty Schiff will not let Hunter Biden come, and if he will not bring the whistleblower forward, every republican in congress should take a walk and say, “This is a farce.”

Trump supporters were pleased to see such actions, but more is needed to save the Republic from ultimate constitutional disaster and the continuous corruption by the Democratic Party.

Republican efforts are noted, but the recent elections spell trouble for 2020 as the Democrats are working overtime to make sure the country turns blue.

Kentucky Governor Bevin

Democratic money and dirty tricks were behind the recent election losses.  Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin was the only republican to lose in that state’s election.  Republicans won every other statewide race by a considerable margin.  Democrat Andy Beshear won the gubernatorial spot by a narrow margin of 4,000 votes.

Unfortunately, Governor Bevin was not only sabotaged by Libertarians, who won over 20,000 votes for candidate John Hicks, but by a failure of Republicans to vote for Bevin despite their straight line votes for every other Republican in the election. Governor Bevin was a strong pro-lifer, but it has been alleged that he was unpopular for a number of reasons.  People thought of him as a carpetbagger from Colorado and that he wasn’t really in tune with the culture of Kentucky.

Nevertheless, a look at the county-by-county map in Kentucky compared to an Electoral College map of the United States, looks like Bevin would have won Kentucky handily.  The blue liberal enclaves in the cities are where the democratic voter turnout was high and cost the Governor his second term.

Virginia Goes Blue

Former Attorney General Eric Holder has had his first electoral success for the democrats to dominate state legislatures.  They won both chambers of the legislature adding to the governor’s control.  After next year’s census, Virginia’s legislative district lines will be redrawn.  That redistricting will likely cement Democratic dominance for the next ten years.

Holder launched the National Democratic Redistricting Committee which is committed to the domination of electoral map-making through the courts and legislatures.  They’ve won with litigation changing maps they didn’t like.  They plan on doing the same in another 11 states next year.  Previously Republicans had done the same thing after Obama was elected in 2008.

Holder’s campaign is “sue to blue” and has yielded major gains for Democrats.  Judges appointed by Democrats actually helped by striking down previous Republican maps.

In Virginia, Democrats spent at least $54 million, outspending Republicans by $12 million.  Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer and George Soros and their organizations spent more than all outside Republican contributors combined.

Republicans must get involved in the state elections.  The Democrats are keeping them occupied with their unconstitutional impeachment inquiry against the President.  Holder and his gang intend to flip one chamber in each state, deadlocking Republicans and Democrats and throwing questions to the courts.  Republicans need to get state judges elected who refrain from meddling in the redistricting function which the U.S. Constitution assigns to the state legislatures.

Holder will face a harder task in Florida, Georgia and Texas, as Virginia was already trending blue, but the threat to the GOP is real.  If the Republicans don’t take up that challenge soon, they’re going to lose for another decade.  We certainly can’t afford that.

Soros has already launched a super pac for democrats according to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission.  He has seeded the 2020 campaign fund with $5.1 million.

Here is Open Secrets list of the individuals who have dipped deepest into their own pockets for campaign contributions to federal candidates, parties, political action committees, 527 organizations, and Carey committees. Only contributions to Democrats and Republicans or liberal and conservative outside groups are included in calculating the percentages the donor has given to either party.

Demonic Hatred

Yes, that’s what this is, demonic hatred not only of President Trump, and the fact that he was elected over the chosen corrupt Democratic candidate, but hatred of his supporters.  The attacks on this President have been endless, and here are just a few.

First was the spying by Obama’s henchmen and the creation of the phony dossier by Christopher Steele, paid for by the DNC and Hillary, then the immediate call for impeachment before Trump was even inaugurated.  In short order, the attack on General Michael Flynn by the partisan FBI agents successfully removed Trump’s perfect choice for National Security Advisor.

Ron Johnson, chairman of Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee made a study of Mr. Trump’s first 18 weeks in office.  He found the administration had faced 125 leaked stories, one leak each day containing information that is potentially damaging to national security.  Former FBI Director James Comey made sure before he was fired to leak confidential information and see to it that the Russia collusion hoax was started.

Rosenstein appointed Comey’s good friend, Robert Mueller to spend millions of tax dollars and over two years investigating our President knowing it was a criminal deception by the left.  Now we’re into the impeachment for a legal phone call to another head of state by President Trump.  Congressman Schiff is in charge of the impeachment inquiry circus to destroy President Trump’s chances of reelection in 2020.

Left and Right Join to Destroy Trump

Today we learned that former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, is claiming two former cabinet members tried to recruit her to help undermine the president. In a recent interview, Haley said former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly confronted her in a closed-door meeting to enlist her in opposing President Trump.  She told them to speak directly to the President.

Haley will detail the alleged meeting in her soon to be released memoir, “With All Due Respect.”

The Washington Examiner reports that a group of medical experts who claim President Trump’s mental health makes him dangerous and unfit for office is seeking to testify during House impeachment proceedings.

The group, comprising four psychiatrists, a clinical neuropsychologist, a neurologist, and an internist, are planning to announce their availability next week to members of Congress and the media. They’ll also be available to consult privately with members of Congress, with 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, or with members of Trump’s cabinet.

Conclusion

Can we win?  I don’t know, but we surely need strong conservative Republican warriors and as I see it, there are only a handful…

The Whistle-Blower Rule is Wrong

The impeachment inquiry of President Trump has taken center stage in the political campaign of 2020, even to the point of overshadowing press coverage of the Democrat presidential candidates. The inquiry focuses on a statement from an alleged whistle-blower who expressed concern regarding a telephone call the President had with the incoming President of the Ukraine. As of this writing, the whistle-blower’s identity remains anonymous. Frankly, we do not know if this is one person or several as the complaint appears to have been written by a team of lawyers. As a result, the President and his representatives cannot ask questions of his accuser.

I have tried to look at this from both sides, Republican and Democrat, and took the position; what if this was President Obama being impeached and not President Trump? Be it Republican or Democrat, I came to the same conclusions.

The protection of the whistle-blower’s anonymity could easily be construed as in conflict with Amendment 6 of the Constitution (Rights of Accused in Criminal Prosecutions; the “Confrontation Clause”); to wit:

“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.”

This applies to criminal cases, not civil. I tend to see impeachment as a rather serious situation, after all it is reserved for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It is also something we have considered only a handful of times in our republic’s history, yet we have never removed a president from office.

Frankly, we all know it will not happen as the Senate will inevitably come to the president’s defense and dismiss the charges coming from the House. The question remains, is impeachment a criminal case or civil? In all examples over the years, it has been treated as a heinous crime, which leads me to believe it is criminal and the President is being prohibited from facing his accuser(s).

Our history is littered with stories of whistle-blowers, such as in 2013 Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who ignited the U.S. surveillance program scandal. There are also the whistle-blowers involved with the Benghazi scandal and the IRS intimidation program. Whistle-blowers have actually been with us a long time. In my life, it goes back to Daniel Ellsberg who in 1969 released the “Pentagon Papers” to the “New York Times,” detailing the military activity in Viet Nam under LBJ and Nixon. This, of course, ultimately triggered Watergate.

However, let’s go a little further back in time to 1925 when the Army instigated a court-martial against Colonel Billy Mitchell, an episode which has quickly been forgotten in history, but has an important bearing on the whistle-blowers of today.

Although Mitchell is primarily credited for building Air Power in this country, his military career goes as far back as the Spanish-American War where he served as the youngest Army officer (at age 18). Mitchell’s notoriety though began during “The Great War” (WWI) where, as Major, he became the first American officer to come under fire in the trenches of France. During the war, he earned several decorations and citations. More importantly, it was in France where he developed his fascination and passion for the airplane as a military weapon.

Mitchell understood the potential of the airplane. His superiors did not, and saw it as nothing more than a trivial instrument for observing enemy forces. They laughed at him when he claimed airplanes could sink a ship by dropping bombs on it. At the time, battleships were considered invincible. He finally got an opportunity to prove his claim and sank the German battleship “Ostfriesland” which was to be scuttled following the war. Nonetheless, the military was unimpressed. Following the war, in peacetime, there was an emphasis on shrinking the military. Even though Mitchell begged for money for research and development, he was ignored. He even urged the military to form a separate branch dedicated to an air service, but was denied. Consequently, American Air Power diminished almost to obscurity. The English, French, Italians, even the Germans had far superior airships than the Americans, and Mitchell made sure the newspapers knew about it.

Knowing Mitchell’s image was growing larger in the press, the military sent him on remote assignments in order to eliminate his exposure in the press. In 1924 he was sent to study military defenses in the Pacific. During this time, he visited Japan and witnessed firsthand how the Japanese were embracing Air Power and realized America was far behind their counterparts. Following his tour he produced an extensive 323 page report on his assessment of American defenses in the Pacific. It was in this prophetic report that he predicted how Japan would attack Pearl Harbor with remarkable accuracy. Even though the military dismissed his report as ridiculous, Mitchell’s predictions would come true 17 years later. Nonetheless, he was buried again by the military.

One year later, in 1925, the Navy dirigible “Shenandoah” was destroyed in a storm in Ohio, with a loss of thirteen lives. Mitchell was outraged as he knew the ship was archaic and denounced the Navy for its “almost treasonable” attitude towards aviation:

“As a patriotic American citizen, I can stand by no longer and see these disgusting performances…at the expense of the lives of our people and the delusion of the American public. We may all make mistakes but the criminal mistakes made by armies and navies, whenever they have been allowed to handle aeronautics, show their incompetence…This, then, is what I have to say on the subject, and I hope that every American will hear.”(1)

Although Mitchell became a hero to the American people for his bold statements, his superiors felt otherwise and court-martialed him for insubordination. Actually, the court-martial was what Mitchell was hoping for as he figured it was the best way to bring attention to the problem and create change. The case garnered a lot of attention in the press, and many notable proponents of Air Power testified on his behalf. In the end though, Mitchell was suspended from the Army for five years. Instead, Mitchell resigned in 1926 and spent the remainder of his life speaking on behalf of Air Power. He would die in 1936 never knowing how accurate his predictions would become in World War II. In 1942, President Roosevelt, recognized Mitchell’s contributions to Air Power by restoring his status and elevating him to the rank of Major General. In 1946, he was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, “in recognition of his outstanding pioneer service and foresight in the field of American military aviation”…10 years after his death. Today, this medal bears his likeness on it.

There are some similarities, as well as differences, between Billy Mitchell and today’s impeachment whistle-blower(s). Mitchell was a visionary who used his court-martial to draw public attention to the problems of Air Power. Today’s whistle-blower is not a visionary. He/She/They just stumbled on a problem and reported it. Whereas Mitchell stood and took his medicine as a military officer, thereby garnering the support of the American people, the impeachment whistle-blower(s) hid behind anonymity not wanting to suffer through a career ending court case as Mitchell did.

The big problem with becoming a whistle blower is that it doesn’t pay well. You might earn the admiration of the American people, but you must also face the wrath of the establishment. It takes someone with a lot of character to stand up and report a problem, whether it be in the corporate world or government. The prime difference between Billy Mitchell and today’s whistle-blower(s) is simple: Mitchell stood like a courageous man and took his medicine; the whistle-blower(s) has not. Understand this though, the American Air Power we know today can be directly attributed to the efforts of Billy Mitchell. Had he not spoken up when he did, our air defenses would have been primitive by the start of World War II. Mitchell knew what he was talking about and would not be intimidated by the powers in authority. This leads me to believe today’s impeachment whistle-bower(s) can be intimidated, and perhaps has been threatened by others.

In the end, the president is entitled to face his accuser, whatever his/her/their name is.

VIDEO: ‘Popular Vote’ Movement Would Shift Power to Big Cities, Experts Warn

The Electoral College is under threat from states looking to enact legislation that ignores local voters in favor of national election results, experts said during a panel Thursday at The Heritage Foundation.

Responding to a wave of 15 states that have joined the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact since the 2016 election, they argued that the Founders instituted the Electoral College to ensure stability and representation to all states.

“We only got the Constitution because the Constitutional Convention persuaded the states to enter into a federation arrangement,” Allen Guelzo, a history professor at Gettysburg College, said. “Federalism is in the bones of our nation, and I would be concerned that we can’t start removing bones without the whole body collapsing.”

The panel, titled “The Fight to Preserve the Electoral College,” featured Guelzo as well as Trent England, executive vice president of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, and Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at Heritage.

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is a legislative partnership among states that agree to award all their electoral votes in future elections to whichever candidate wins the national popular vote, disregarding the results of ballots cast in each individual state.

The compact would take effect only once enough states join to determine an election by awarding all 270 electoral votes needed to secure a presidential win.

So far, 15 states and the District of Columbia have joined the compact. Lobbyists actively are looking to expand the agreement to more states whose leaders were upset by the results of the 2016 election, when Republican Donald Trump won the presidency despite losing the national popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Guelzo argued that the Electoral College slows down presidential elections by design, providing legitimacy to the presidency and combating voter fraud.

“The Electoral College embodies a fundamental instinct of the Founders, which is to say ‘slow down,’” he said, adding that “gridlock is not actually an accident.”

The history professor pushed back on objections to the Electoral College, including by some analysts who have argued that the current system violates the principle of one person, one vote.

“If one man, one vote is to be the rule, then as soon as a president loses popular support we ought to have another vote,” Guelzo said. “So we could have presidential elections every six months, three months, eight months—every time there’s an unpleasant tweet.”

England based his arguments on the 2000 election, when Republican George W. Bush lost the national vote to Democrat Al Gore and a recount in Florida for that state’s electoral vote threatened to decide who sits in the Oval Office.

“This is not just going on in blue states, this is going on across the country,” England said of the movement to bypass the electoral college. “This is a serious threat wherever you live. Red state, purple state, there are people there lobbying to hijack the Electoral College.”

England said the movement for states to bypass the Electoral College without going through the difficult process of amending the Constitution gained renewed strength after the 2016 election.

Grassroots activists and lobbying organizations, he said, are driving a message that misleads many voters about the facts of the current electoral system.

Von Spakovsky, manager of Heritage’s Election Law Reform Initiative, turned to voting numbers to argue that rural areas would be left behind if the Electoral College were abolished.

“The whole point of the Electoral College is to balance the states’ demands for greater representation and sovereignty against the risk of what James Madison liked to call the tyranny of the majority,” von Spakovsky said.

Looking again at the 2000 election, he warned that without the Electoral College, the chaos that voters and the nation at large experienced during the Florida recount would be extended to every state and county across the nation, as candidates demanded recounts in every region that potentially could sway an election in their favor.

As a result, von Spakovsky said, the decisions of the president would be seen as illegitimate by significant portions of the nation, and voter fraud would run rampant in areas unprepared to deal with it.

“What we’ve had for over 200 years with the Electoral College system is unbelievable stability,” he said.

“There is no reason to change it now.”

VIDEO: The Vortex — Preparing for War

TRANSCRIPT

We are in the last phase now of the studio’s physical layout being finalized, with the desks being put into place and wired and all the computers and so forth being hooked up and all that electronic business being put into place.

The staff moved over from our South building last Friday afternoon into their new digs here in the North building and got settled into their new spaces. What remains is getting all the lights in place and the somewhat daunting task of getting all the cabling for cameras and audio wired back to the control room.

We haven’t officially measured it, but it’s probably a safe bet that there’s a couple hundred yards or more of wires and cables and cords and strings and ropes; they are all over the place. We also beefed up the security of the website to a tremendous degree, as well as the technical specs and operation of our internal communications systems.

Church Militant is, in short, poised to become the most sophisticated media operation in the Catholic world.

And while this new studio space is all cool and exciting and so forth, the reason for it is not. There is a cultural and theological war taking place, and without overstating it, it is a fight for the moral survival of the race. This coming year on the political front — the U.S. presidential elections will be a bloodbath, as the extremely unlikely champion (mostly) of God and country battles forces hellbent on a redefinition of humanity.

We have built this Catholic media center to be the heartbeat of authentic Catholicism, which must, as its very charter, fight against this darkness. Our Blessed Lord did not establish His Church — and yes, it is His— to go along with the world, but to convert it and to bring it salvation.

But there are forces, dark forces, as we have well documented, at work in the Church to pervert Her divine mandate. They’ve been in place for centuries, but they reached a critical mass this last half-century, and now is the time to go on the offensive against them. That is the entire reason for this newly revamped facility — to go to war with these demons who make use of human agents to bring ruination to mankind.

Some of these forces within the Church enjoy much celebrity and command large followings. They are false prophets and must be denounced. Whether destruction of the Church is a conscious motivation of theirs or they are just useful idiots in Hell’s plan no longer matters. The destruction they bring about through malice or cowardice must be confronted and defeated. They are present in every aspect of the Church and the life of the Church — in the hierarchy, the universities, the chanceries, parishes and so forth.

And if you think this sounds all crazy, then you don’t have a sufficient enough understanding of the activity of the diabolical.

If you believe in God, specifically the Holy Trinity, you therefore must believe that Lucifer refused to serve and fell from the celestial realms forever, driven out by St. Michael and his legions. Satan now unleashed his fury on the only beings he can — us. And his mission, what consumes him, is to deny to humanity what is everlastingly denied to him.

For this reason, the Eternal Logos incarnated saves us from a fate we would otherwise be powerless to fight off. He established a Church, one Church, His own mystical body on earth as a refuge, a means, the means, to salvation — the only means.

So, of course, Satan would wage war against the Church — it is the path of escape from him — and he seeks to destroy it. Think of the Church as a tunnel out of a slave labor camp, the only escape, and the commandant of the camp knows about the tunnel. He will do anything in his power to shut off that escape route.

Of course, God is more powerful than Satan so he will never defeat the Church as She is in Herself. But he can still destroy individuals. The Church will always be with us as Christ has promised. It will never be defeated.

So the Church will always be with us, but the question of whether we individually will always be with the Church is still an open question. And if we die apart from the Church, we lose — forever.

So Satan does everything he can to weaken the Church, leaving no stone unturned. That includes, even in a special way because of its power to influence, the media. It’s why we chose this arena to stand and fight.

No one in the Catholic world does media like Church Militant does.

We begin and end every day with prayer, including the Rosary, because no baptized Catholic can be Catholic without prayer. It is the very first weapon we have because it is supernatural. We combat directly the errors so common and profound throughout the Church, especially in the realm of so-called Catholic media.

These include liberal reporters like John Allen of Crux, Christopher Lamb of The Tablet, Austen Ivereigh and loads of others. It also includes the even more dangerous spiritual terrorists like James Martin, Bishops John Stowe and Robert McElroy, and the really poisonous characters like Cdls. Blase Cupich, Joseph Tobin and Donald Wuerl. These men and their evil pronouncements and agendas are supported by, and advertised for, by untrustworthy and deceptive outfits and so-called journalists like the ones we named, and more.

They are all allied against the Church, attempting to present a different picture of Her true mission handed to Her by Christ Himself while He was personally present here on earth: the salvation of souls. They don’t believe that and have therefore disqualified themselves from being considered reliable. They are not.

The entire culture is at a crisis point precipitated by the crisis in the Church.

A hundred years ago, Communism understood that to create a world without God, where the state would become God, the Catholic Church would have to be destroyed. But where centuries of other attempts to destroy the Catholic Church had failed, Marxism decided to quietly invade and pervert from within.

We are here to draw the line in the sand. All good Catholics must now draw the line in the sand, and that begins with information, knowing the enemy and exposing his tactics, so the glories of the Faith may shine forth.

The whole reason for this extremely cool, all newly equipped and updated facility is to take the war to Satan and his deceptions.

When Our Lord said the gates of Hell would not prevail, that presents a picture of the Church attacking, not crouching down, hiding and cowering in some defensive posture.We have the Queen of Heaven, St. Michael, the truth of God Himself, all present in the Holy Catholic Church. It’s time for war.

Before we wrap up, we’d like to continue to express our gratitude to all of you who have donated to this cause and continue to donate.

We still have bills that are outstanding, and whatever you can keep giving to help is very much appreciated.

Thank you for the incredible amount of trust you have placed in us. This is your apostolate. We run it day-to-day, but this is the work of the Church, and we want to thank you for allowing us to not just continue the fight but to step it up.

The Left’s Immigration Laws: The Ultimate Con Game

Undermining public safety, public health, national security and the jobs and wages of American workers.

I have written ever so many articles about how globalists have used deceptive language to deceive Americans about the true nature of our immigration laws, beginning with President Carter’s edict, issued during his administration, that INS employees, replace the legally accurate term “Illegal Alien” with the deceptive term, “Undocumented Immigrant.”

I focused on this in my article, Language Wars: The Road to Tyranny Is Paved with Language Censorship. Generally we think of immigration fraud as taking two forms – aliens who engage in fraud schemes, such as those who enter into a sham marriage with an American or lawful immigrant, not out of love, but as a ploy to game the immigration system to acquire a green card.

The other traditional form of immigration fraud involves the manufacture of counterfeit or altered identity documents and/or supporting documents such as birth certificates, driver’s licenses or green cards.

However, there is actually a third form of immigration fraud, by which tens of millions Americans have been conned into believing pernicious lies about about our nation’s borders and immigration laws.

Over time, this highly coordinated fraud perpetrated by the mainstream media and globalists in both political parties, has convinced millions of otherwise sensible Americans to accept and even laud politicians and their corrupt immigration policies and practices that undermine public safety, public health, national security and the jobs and wages of American workers.

The immigration con game began in earnest with Carter’s Orwellian use of language I referenced at the beginning of my commentary.

Awhile back I wrote an extensive article about all three forms of immigration fraud in my commentary, Immigration Fraud: Lies That Kill. In that article I also noted that the 9/11 terrorists and other such terrorists exploited immigration fraud to enter the United States and then preparer to launch deadly terror attacks.

Today American’s have been duped into believing that only bigots, racists and xenophobes would want to secure our nation’s borders and enforce our immigration laws.  In fact consider that the leaders of the Democratic Party now openly demand an end to immigration law enforcement and vilify immigration law enforcement personnel and have established Sanctuary Cities and even Sanctuary States that refuse to cooperate with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents.  These jurisdictions now refuse to honor ICE detainers calling for local law enforcement to not release aliens who have serious criminal histories, so that they could be taken into federal custody to be deported (removed) from the United States to protect communities in the United States.  All too often these aliens have gone on to attack more innocent victims and yet, millions of Americans have been somehow convinced that sanctuary policies are moral and appropriate!

On October 25, 2019 ICE published a news release, ICE announces more Mecklenburg County criminal offenders shielded by current non-cooperation policy that began with this paragraph:

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released additional information Thursday on more unlawfully present foreign nationals facing serious criminal offenses in Mecklenburg County, who under the county’s ICE non-cooperation policy would currently be released back into the local community where they would be free to reoffend.

Among the serious crimes these aliens face include sex crimes against children, drug trafficking and firearms possession.  Incredibly, local authorities will not let ICE know when these criminals may be released.

This is not an isolated problem.  On October 30, 2019 ICE posted a news release, ICE captures Salvadoran illegal alien released by Buncombe County despite conviction for child sex offense.

My article, Politicians Must Face Consequences For Crimes They Enable focused on the release, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, of two suspected members of MS-13, Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar.  Both are citizens of El Salvador who are illegally present in the United States who had been arrested on May 11, 2019 and charged with, attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges.

On May 16, 2019 these two alleged gang members were arrested and charged with brutally murdering a young girl who would still be alive if the ICE detainers had been honored.  That willful lack of cooperation with ICE cost that young girl her life.

I have traveled around the United States participating in various speaking events and frequently folks complain the “Liberals are ruled by the feelings.”

In point of fact, all humans make many decisions that are based on emotions.  Being “cold-blooded” or “heartless” are anything but accolades.  Don’t we raise our children to be considerate and compassionate?

Empathy is not a vice but a virtue.

The problem is that the massive campaign of misinformation and disinformation conducted by the mainstream media in concert with various special interest groups, have conned tens of millions of our fellow Americans into believing that our immigration laws are unfair and based on racism and xenophobia.  In point of fact, our immigration laws don’t only tell us who to keep our and who to kick out, but on who to admit.  Our immigration system is the most generous in the world.   Currently each and every year Ameria admits more than one million lawful immigrants and naturalizes hundreds of new citizens.  These huge numbers are greater than the numbers for all of the other countries on the planet combined.

U.S. Code § 1182 enumerates the categories of aliens who are to be excluded from the United States.  Race, religion and/or ethnicity are not factors.  Among these classes of aliens who are to be prevented from entering the United States are aliens who suffer from dangerous communicable, diseases or extreme mental illness, are convicted felons, human rights violators, war criminals, terrorists and spies are to be excluded as well as aliens who would seek unlawful employment thus displacing American workers or driving down the wages of American workers who are similarly employed and aliens who would likely become public charges.

Feelings and emotions are powerful and make us human.  Our challenge, in this particularly dangerous era, is to harness these powerful emotions of those who have been conned by the globalists and radical Left so that they will apply their emotions, particularly empathy and compassion to their fellow Americans first.

No rational person would give money to charity if his/her own children were going to bed hungry.  Homelessness is on the rise because of many factors, including the loss of jobs and wage suppression created by flooding America with foreign workers willing to work for substandard wages under substandard conditions, and frequently displace hard-working Americans.

Flooding America with more people increases the demand for housing, thereby driving up the housing costs, often out of the reach of working poor Americans.  This contributes to record levels of homelessness.

Children, especially those who are members of ethic immigrant communities, are being accosted, beaten, raped and killed by transnational gang members in their schools and not just from Latin America.  Record quantities of dangerous drugs including heroin, meth and fentanyl are pouring into the United States across our all too porous borders- and not just the U.S./Mexican border.

Those who currently oppose immigration law enforcement and secure borders are not our adversaries but our allies, if we can use the facts to win them over to understand that our borders and immigration laws are not only eminently fair, but are our first and last lines of defense.

Here’s a List of 100 Members of Congress Supporting CAIR

Ahead of the Council of American-Islamic Relations’ 25th Anniversary Gala event last Saturday, the Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization boasted that “120+” members of Congress had sent them letters of support.

We never saw those letters, however, thanks to Clarion reader Viola Rose, we were directed to a list of 100 members of Congress who voiced their support of CAIR in 2018. The list was published by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, along with the letters of support.

You can see the list and the letter by clicking here.

The list includes Democrat presidential candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar. Ninety-seven out of the 100 names on the list were Democrats; three were Republican.

CAIR’s gala event took place November 9, 2019, at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Washington, D.C., and featured Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Islamist activist and sharia-apologist Linda Sarsour.

CAIR describes itself as “America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group,” but in 2007, the U.S. government labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing the Hamas terrorist group.

In November 2014, CAIR was designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates along with a host of other Muslim Brotherhood entities.

CAIR was listed among “individuals/entities who are/were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” The Palestine Committee is a secret body set up to advance the Brotherhood/Hamas agenda in the U.S.

The FBI subsequently severed official contacts with the group, saying it “does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.”

Yet members of Congress – either ignorantly or intentionally — continue to endorse CAIR.

If your congressional representative is on the list, please write to him or her and include the above information on CAIR. Let us know if you get a response by clicking here.

JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN

We would still like to see the 2019 list of the “120+” members of Congress who CAIR claims sent letters of support to them ahead of this gala event.

You can copy and paste our letter below and send it to CAIR by clicking here. (This link takes you to CAIR’s home page. At the bottom of the page, there is a place to write a message. CAIR states its goal is to reply within 24-48 hours.)

Dear CAIR,

You recently claimed that 120+ members of Congress sent letters to you welcoming your upcoming 25th anniversary gala in Washington, D.C.

Can you please send me a list of those Congress people?


Join our campaign to get CAIR to publish the list of “120+” members of Congress who wrote them letters of support. Please write to CAIR and ask them to publish the list and the letters


Please tell us if you get a response by clicking here.

Entitlement Liabilities Are a Graver Threat to the Next Generation of Americans Than Climate Change

On January 31, 1940, Miss Ida Fuller received a check for $22.54. She was the first person to retire under the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) scheme, better known as Social Security. At the time of her retirement in 1939, she had paid just $22 in Social Security taxes. Ms. Fuller lived to be 100, cashing over $20,000 worth of Social Security checks.

If she had only paid $22.54 in contributions, where did the $20,000 Ms. Fuller received in Social Security payouts come from? It came, as it does now, from the taxpayers of the day. As of 2019, your employer deducts 6.2 percent of your wages up to $132,900 a year, matches this amount, and sends it to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA deposits this with the Treasury, which spends it and receives Treasury bonds in return. This is the fabled trust fund that guarantees Social Security.

But these Treasury bonds are simply IOUs redeemable against the income of tomorrow’s taxpayers. When one of the Treasury bonds held by the SSA falls due for payment, the Treasury can only get the funds to meet this liability by taxing, borrowing (taxing the taxpayers of tomorrow), or printing money (imposing an inflation tax). In each case, what really guarantees Social Security is not the money you paid in but the earnings of today’s or tomorrow’s taxpayers.

Such a pay-as-you-go scheme could chug along well enough as long as there were lots of workers relative to retirees. When the program began, every 100 workers were supporting three retirees.

This favorable ratio encouraged politicians to be more generous. Originally intended to cover only about 50 percent of all workers, Social Security was expanded even before Ida Fuller received her first check to provide benefits for dependents of retired workers and surviving dependents. In the post-war years, Social Security grew further. Disability benefits, payable as early as age 50, were added in 1956, and during the 1950s coverage was extended to other previously excluded workers, making it essentially universal. Congress passed across-the-board benefit increases of 7 percent (1965), 13 percent (1967), 15 percent (1969), 10 percent (1971), 20 percent (1972), and 11 percent (1974). In 1972, benefits were tied to the Consumer Price Index, yielding an annual “cost of living adjustment.”

In 1965, Medicare was signed into law, establishing a heavily subsidized federal health care program for the elderly. Former President Harry Truman and his wife received the first Medicare cards without paying a cent in Medicare taxes.

Like Social Security, Medicare is financed by a payroll tax of 2.9 percent split between employer and employee, up from 0.7 percent in 1966. Like Social Security, that money gets paid right out to meet current expenses, which were vastly expanded by passage of Medicare Part D in 2003. And like Social Security, such a pay-as-you-go scheme could chug along well enough as long as there were lots of workers relative to retirees.

Two things derailed that. US birth rates fell from births 3.65 births per woman in 1965 to 1.80 in 2016, and life expectancy rose from 68 in 1950 to 79 today. Together, this meant ever more retirees relative to the workers supporting them. By 2017, 100 workers were supporting 25 retirees.

These shifting demographics have shredded the solvency of the “trust funds.” Social Security is estimated to run out of reserves in 2034, after which benefits would have to be reduced by about 25 percent to keep spending within available annual revenue. Over 75 years, Social Security has an unfunded liability of $13.9 trillion.

The Medicare hospital insurance trust fund will run out of reserves in 2026. Medicare’s second trust fund, for physician and outpatient services and for prescription drugs, is permanently “solvent” because it has an unlimited call on the general fund of the Treasury—the incomes of future taxpayers. Premiums paid by the beneficiaries will cover only about 25 percent of program costs; the rest of the spending is unfinanced. Medicare’s overall unfunded liability over 75 years is more than $37 trillion.

The taxes levied to fund Social Security have already risen drastically. In 1937, the Social Security tax rate was one percent on earnings up to $3,000 ($53,449 in 2019 dollars) to be matched by the employer. By 1971 it was 4.6 percent on earnings up to $7,800 ($49,411 in 2019 dollars). It now stands at 6.2 percent up to $132,900.

This is only going to get worse. According to Census Bureau projections, by 2030 each 100 working-age Americans will be supporting 35 retirees, and this could rise to 42 by 2060. Another way to think of this is to calculate the number of retirees each worker must support. In 1946, the burden of one retiree was shared between 42 workers. Today, according to the SSA, roughly three workers cover each retiree’s Social Security and Medicare benefits. By 2030, however, there will be only two workers supporting each retiree.

In other words, a working couple will have to support not only themselves and their family but also someone outside the family thanks to Social Security and Medicare.

To make Social Security solvent again, the payroll tax rate would need to be hiked immediately from 12.4 percent to 15.2 percent, or Social Security benefits would need to be cut on a permanent basis by about 17 percent. According to economists Roger LeRoy Miller, Daniel K. Benjamin, and Douglass C. North:

[F]or Social Security and Medicare to stay as they are, the payroll tax rate may have to rise to 25 percent of wages over the next decade. And a payroll tax rate of 40 percent is not unlikely by the middle of the twenty-first century.

Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg recently made international headlines with an impassioned speech to the United Nations in which she complained that her future had been stolen by inaction on climate change. An American Ms. Thunberg’s age could say the same about entitlement spending on Social Security and Medicare.

By the expanding eligibility for and hiking the benefits of a pay-as-you-go system while at the same time having fewer children to fund it, the generations preceding that child have left a fearsome financial obligation. Either taxes will go up sharply for the workers of tomorrow, lowering their standard of living, or benefits will go down for the retirees of tomorrow, lowering their standard of living. One group is going to feel pretty angry.

These problems were foreseen even as politicians were hiking payouts. In 1978, the economist Paul Samuelson wrote:

[O]ur Social Security system is also an actuarially unfunded system…there is no obligation for this generation to have children at the same rate as did previous generations. Therefore, when those born during the baby-boom period of the ‘50s reach retirement age in the next century, their stipends will be felt as more of a burden by the thinner ranks of the then working population

We are on the brink of inter-generational strife. We have the political shortsightedness of decades past to thank for that.

VIDEOS: “I Caught the Swamp”

The fake news media will have you believe that we are one step away from losing this battle and impeaching our President. Complete nonsense and just that, fake news. The media, a critical component of the deep state apparatus, along with the rest of the deep state, are panicking. They have lost virtually every battle and fraudulent fake attempts and coupe’s against President Trump and we the people. Donald Trump, told us, as a candidate in 2016, that we will begin to win again and so much so that we will get tired of winning. Well we are winning. We are winning “big league”. Let’s barely scratch the surface on this.

“I Caught The Swamp” – President Trump

Last week, President Trump tweeted and stated that he caught the swamp and that we have it all, all the evidence. Have a listen to the President here.

The President went on to say that the deep state’s time is up. I have been talking about this for probably two years. Trump has all the goods on everyone. The NSA data collection. The IG II report and the FISA findings. NXIVM data, (The sex cult trafficking ring). The intel on Jeffrey Epstein and more. And of course, as I and many others knew from the onset, Epstein did not commit suicide. He was suicided. And this too has now come out with the coroner report. AG Barr has subpoenaed twenty prison workers for starters. Yes, my friends and fellow patriots, they, the deep state and it’s operatives here and abroad, are all going down. We are indeed winning.

Watch This Speech

Winning

So, and in the face of the relentless non-stop attacks, what has President Trump accomplished thus far as he dismantles decades of Globalists policies? Well for starters, we are coming to learn that people and countries we thought were our friends are turning out to be our enemies and people and countries we thought were our enemies are turning out to be our friends. Funny how that works isn’t it? Truth, Trump and the age of transparency.  Of course this will only serve as a fraction of what the President has accomplished. Promiseskept.com is an additional place you can visit for related information.

The Big Preparation

The American people and the world are slowly and methodically being prepared for some rather disruptive uncomfortable truths. I have  been writing and speaking about this for quite some time now. This is now upon us. Read my articles here on my website. You can listen to my media interviews and public speeches here.

As the President in the recent past has stated that these are sick people doing very bad and evil things. The rafters of the world are about to rattle. Their time is up. They have been caught. And very soon, it will be a cascading avalanche that comes down upon them, and they know it. Thus the final desperate attempts that you see before you. Just like Hillary Clinton stated way back when that if we take her down that we would bring all of Washington DC down with her. McCabe recently said the same thing. And in the e-mail to election rigger, FOX NEWS contributor Donna Brazile, as released by the innocent hero Julian Assange stated, that “If you don’t do something about that bastard we are all going to hang from nooses” or something of the sort. Well, get the rope. And yes the swamp will be drained.  GITMO tribunals are to be live streamed and remember the Federal death penalty has been reinstated by AG Barr. The federal courts are being re-benched. The stage is being set. Get ready. Get the popcorn for the show of a lifetime. What a truly amazing time to be alive!

What’s Next?

The deep state is going down my friends and this will be a cascading avalanche at some point in time and very soon I might add. They are all going down and this includes Soros, the Clinton’s and Obama’s, mark my words. This will go one for some years to come and already has begun. Please check out related articles below and the links within.

VIDEO: Police in Sweden speak out

Posted by Eeyore

One wonders what the long term effects of constant personal intimidation by protected groups are to Swedish police. Its likely that (similar to politics) fewer and fewer decent people will sign up. As the culture drills down to politics and then to policing, often skipping legislation altogether, so policing becomes both hopeless and thankless.

It is almost like the plan is to dismantle centuries of jurisprudence and rule of law based on individual rights and property rights and replace all enforcement with compliant ‘A Clockwork Orange’ type Dims, and eventually non-locals who have no allegiance to our history or ways of thinking. Almost like that.

VIDEO: The Vortex — Digging In. And they are going nowhere.

TRANSCRIPT

There is nothing on the table that isn’t being weaponized by the Left — and we are talking about the Left inside the Church who, for the record, really aren’t in the Church because they reject Church teaching on a variety of issues. And they are digging in.

Nonetheless, since they continue to portray themselves as “Catholic,” then they get to be treated as “Catholic,” meaning their propaganda should be exposed on a theological level for the garbage that it is.

One of the leading provocateurs in the lefty Catholic camp is Austen Ivereigh, British author who never misses a chance to foster dissent. For example, just before the infamous Sex Summit began in Rome last February, Ivereigh tweeted, “Why do you say our Lord had no homosexual tendencies? By what signs or gestures do you deduce this?”

He was in a Twitter war with Fr. Jacob Straub, who responded, “This is very scandalous and possibly a heresy. You need to remove this tweet and confess your sin. Lord, have mercy.”

And so it goes with the lefty Catholic crowd, so closely associated with the lefty political crowd so as to be indistinguishable.

Ivereigh, who used to write for the notorious leftist Catholic rag The Tablet, located in the U.K., really came onto the radar for publishing a book on Pope Francis, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope, back in 2014, jumping on the bandwagon of Team Francis.

Ivereigh is happy to not just support the so-called reforms of Pope Francis, but he never loses an opportunity to slam other Catholic media who question those reforms. Anyone who questions the pope’s moves gets torn to pieces by Ivereigh and the rest of his gang (although many of those same men had no problem openly criticizing Pope Benedict or Pope John Paul).

Ivereigh, you might recall, is the same fellow at one of the first press conferences of the Amazon Synod who tried to portray the Pachamama statues (really idols) as Our Lady and St. Elizabeth — until he got contradicted by panelists, and eventually the pope himself, who called them Pachamama, not representations of Mary and Elizabeth.

But with this crowd, whatever helps push the narrative is all that matters.

A few days back, America Magazine, the flagship publication of the largely dissident Jesuit order, hosted a book launch party for him for his latest tome titled Wounded Shepherd: Pope Francis’ Struggle to Convert the Catholic Church. 

The use of the term “convert” in the title is more than a little telling. Of course, Ivereigh’s book has the full-throated endorsement of homoheretic James Martin, who never met a fellow traveler along the road to overthrowing the Church he hasn’t joined forces with.

Ivereigh and his crowd see this pontificate as a tool, perhaps a willing tool, to talk in generalities about Church teaching and downplay any specificity. So in his book and in his comments at the book launch, he talks about the need to stop talking about dogma or doctrine and start emphasizing personal experience in making moral judgments — meaning, at bottom, whether to commit sin or not.

Problem is Ivereigh and company don’t seem to either know or care anything about the actual concept of sin and its resultant consequence of damnation if a soul were to die in that state. But that doesn’t matter to these guys. They don’t really believe in the Church as She is actually constituted.

It’s much easier for them to think of and present the Church in terms of a giant multinational outfit, whose mission is to create some kind of utopia — Heaven on earth — as opposed to focusing on attaining actual Heaven.

To this end, any moral teaching, especially the ones on sexuality, are free to be passed over because those sins aren’t really sins, their rightness or wrongness being left up to the individual’s “personal experience.” But eat a piece of beef or contribute to so-called man-made climate change — and the fires of Hell await you.

Ivereigh straight up is a liar, who follows the agenda of the Left like the nice, little waterboy he is. For example, the uproar about the Pachamama idols prompted him to say that it grew out of EWTN-fueled panic that never asked indigenous people themselves about the “idols.”

That’s not even in the slightest imagination true. EWTN was not the first to report on the Pachamama. As far as we can tell, Church Militant was the first to identify the statues as symbols of Pachamama and demonstrate their connection to “Mother Earth,” or more specifically, “Earth Mother.”

For the record, it may not have been us, but if it wasn’t, we were certainly among the first, and it was not EWTN.

Secondly, the so-called “indigenous people” didn’t need to be asked specifically when the reports were first issued, because the very telling video moment of them bowing down to them on an earth blanket in the Vatican Gardens said a lot all on its own.

People don’t physically bow down to concepts. They bow down to representations of a concept.

And why didn’t Ivereigh go and ask the “indigenous people” swarming all over Rome, instead of sitting in the Vatican press hall getting shot down by the panel when saying the statues were of Our Lady and St. Elizabeth?

Where did he get his wrong idea? Certainly not from the “indigenous people,” because the statues are a symbol of Mother Earth and fertility and so forth, as they themselves — and the pope and the Vatican — have said.

There are so many ways to dissect the lefty Catholic crowd’s agenda and war on the truth that it’s actually easy. On the sex abuse crisis — proven time and again that its foundational cause is homosexuality, seeing as how four out of every five victims was a teenage boy — Ivereigh simply ignores that truth and says of that assertion: “This leads to terrible diagnoses, best example is their diagnosis of the sex abuse crisis by likes of Viganó and Cdls. Mueller and Burke.”

Of course, Ivereigh is demonstrably wrong, so much so that he seems to require more pity than correction.

In perhaps his most telling quote, demonizing anyone who supports Tradition in the Church (meaning clear doctrine), he says: “Everything is filtered through an ‘ideology of suspicion'” by a party that is trying to undermine him.

“This is a direct attack on his leadership” but “of course they don’t see it that way.” They say it is justified in the name of saving the Church, and in the “name of Tradition.”

Hey, Austen, have you looked around the Church these days? For the past half-century, in fact?

Of course, things have to be viewed in a suspicious manner, just like a fire chief looks at a four-alarm blaze in a suspicious manner, until the objective truth is arrived at. You and your carrying of the water for the Left must also be looked at suspiciously, and eventually denounced — yours and the rest of your elitist-minded “journalist” crowd.

You aren’t journalists. You are little else than mere stenographers for the Left, dutifully repeating their talking points because they excuse any sin you may enjoy. You desire nothing else than to keep the discussion of morality centered on earth as opposed to Heaven.

That is not what the Savior of the world desired. You might recall that loving God is the First Commandment; neighbor comes second. Heaven comes before earth on the priority list.

ABC Insider Speaks Out [+Video]

Editors Note: Project Veritas is publishing the writing below at the request of the ABC news insider who gave us the Amy Robach tape.

This was submitted to us in light of the actions taken against those wrongfully identified as involved in the leaking of the tape and the reactions of ABC news to their spiking of the story on Jeffrey Epstein.

After the CBS employee was fired yesterday, our ABC insider decided it was time to communicate directly with the public.

Here is what the insider had to say:

“By Ignotus,

To my fellow man:

I came forward with this information bearing no motives other than to have this information public. I did not and do not seek any personal gain from this information whether it be financial or otherwise and will always decline. When I became aware of this moment, I had the same reaction as many of you did. Anger, confusion and sadness. I care not about petty political quarrels and only hope for the best in all of us.

To my fellow ABC News employees:

I’ve walked the halls experiencing similar feelings we are all having right now. All of you regardless of your own personal differences in one form or another do an outstanding job. I sincerely enjoy working with each and every one of you and will continue to do so throughout our careers.

To those wrongfully accused:

It is terrible that you have been lashed out at by the company. I know some may put the burden of guilt on me, but my conscience is clear. The actions of the company towards you are the result of their own and not anyone else. The public outcry, from coast to coast, of all people, creeds, and political affiliations, is clear. I have not one doubt that there will always be support for you, and you will have prosperous careers. For neither you, nor I, have done anything wrong. 

To Amy Robach:

You are the only person deserving of an apology. I am most certainly sorry. Not for my actions or for this to center around you, but for what is clear to have happened. When I first stumbled across this, my initial reaction was outrage. But this soon turned towards empathy. I cannot imagine doing all the hard work to only have it shelved. If the past few years have taught us anything, it is the truth that some of us have endured many hardships in this industry. From the spiking of stories regarding prominent and powerful people in this world, and to yours. I believe you are an outstanding reporter and have done such tremendous work in the community as well.

To ABC News:

I sit right here with you all in complete shock. I, like many, are at a loss for words on how this has been handled. Instead of addressing this head-on like the company has in the past, it has spun into a mission of seek-and-destroy. Innocent people that have absolutely nothing to do with this are being hunted down as if we are all a sport. I challenge all of you to actually look inwards and remember why this company engages in journalism. We all hold the First Amendment at the foundation of this company, yet forget its history, its purpose, and its reasoning for even coming into existence to begin with. How lost we are… yearning to be found. I went to Project Veritas for the sole reason that any other media outlet else would have probably shelved this as well. I thank all of them, and James, for seeking truth.

We are all human and mortal, creatures of mistakes and redemption.

The road to redemption favors no soul.

Sincerely,

Ignotus”

VIDEO: World’s biggest people smuggler busted in Brazil

Posted by 

Thank you José Atento, blog Lei Islâmica em Ação, for this.

The biggest human smuggler in the world, Saifullah Al Mamun, was arrested in a joint operation between the Brazilian Federal Police and the US Migration Agency.

Eight foreigners were arrested on Thursday (31) in an operation to combat smuggling of immigrants, en route to the United States. Research shows that the gang earned $ 10 million between 2014 and 2019.

Five citizens from Bangladesh and three from Pakistan were temporarily arrested. Among them, leader Saifullah Al Mamun, considered by the US government to be the world’s largest human trafficker. The gang was housed in São Paulo. Illegal migration to the United States was done through travel agencies for the purpose of laundering money. The criminal organization charged up to 10 thousand US$ per person to facilitate the migration.

Since November 2017, 84 people sent by the gang have been arrested on arrival in the United States. The Federal Police confirmed that 395 other migrants passed the Brazilian route with the same destination through two agencies in downtown São Paulo. The victims are mostly young people in their 30s.

Illegal immigrants departed from Guarulhos International Airport in São Paulo, bound for Rio Branco, Acre. From there, they crossed the Peruvian border and drove by land to the Mexican border with the United States. Logistics were made in contact with members of the criminal organization in the countries involved.

The accused must be responsible for migrant smuggling crimes qualified by submission to inhuman and degrading conditions, money laundering and criminal organization.

Two former Twitter employees accused of spying on Saudis and ‘thousands of others’ for Saudi Arabia

“Thousands of other Twitter users”?

What were they looking for? Are the Saudis behind the Orwellian treatment of opposition to jihad terror as if it were “bigotry”?

Twitter is so resolutely opposed to foes of jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, it’s no wonder that they didn’t catch these guys.

“Two former Twitter employees accused of spying for Saudi Arabia,” by David Shortell, CNN, November 7, 2019:

Washington, DC (CNN Business)Federal prosecutors accused two former Twitter employees of spying on behalf of Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Ali Alzabarah, a Saudi national, and Ahmad Abouammo, a US citizen, used their access at the social media giant to gather sensitive and nonpublic information on dissidents of the Saudi regime, the Justice Department alleged in a criminal complaint.

The case, unsealed in San Francisco federal court, underscores allegations the Saudi government tries to control anti-regime voices abroad. It also recalls a move reportedly directed by the country’s controversial leader to weaponize online platforms against critics.

The accusations are certain to renew scrutiny of tech companies’ abilities to protect the privacy of their users.

“The criminal complaint unsealed today alleges that Saudi agents mined Twitter’s internal systems for personal information about known Saudi critics and thousands of other Twitter users,” US Attorney David Anderson said in a statement. “U.S. law protects U.S. companies from such an unlawful foreign intrusion. We will not allow U.S. companies or U.S. technology to become tools of foreign repression in violation of U.S. law.”

A third man, Ahmed Almutairi, also from Saudi Arabia, allegedly acted as a go-between to the two Twitter employees and the Saudi government, which according to the complaint rewarded the men with hundreds of thousands of dollars and, for one man, a luxury Hublo watch.

While no Saudi government officials are named as running the spy operation in the complaint, the Washington Post, citing a person familiar with the case, reports a Saudi national who groomed the two employees is tied into the inner circle of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman….
