Target Phil MurphyNew Jersey Gun Owners Get Ready to Fight the Democrats War on Gun RightsNew Jersey – -( New jersey’s November’s election outcome couldn’t have been much worse. A national wave of pent-up liberal frustration swept over both New Jersey and Virginia. It was made worse in the Garden State by the vengeance of unions and other key voting blocs hurt by Governor Christie. The end result was loss of the governorship, larger anti-gun majorities in the legislature, and an election night nail-biter for some pro-gun incumbents from traditionally safe districts.

And now, the aftermath. Higher taxes, impending sanctuary statehood, a taxpayer-funded state bank, and yes – a full frontal assault on the Second Amendment, euphemistically styled as a “conversation” about “common sense gun safety laws.”

But there will be no conversation, no common sense, and it won’t be about gun safety – it will be about targeting the gun rights of honest citizens instead of punishing violent criminals.
We’re going to see an aggressive push to limit magazine capacity, ban large caliber firearms, activate the “smart gun” law, tax gun ownership, regulate ammunition, reverse Governor Christie’s carry improvements, mandate training, and all manner of schemes and contrivances to limit Second Amendment rights, and to harass and demonize law-abiding gun owners. What we won’t see is any meaningful effort to severely punish violent gun criminals, or end the catch-and-release justice system that puts them back out on the street.
New Jersey’s gun ban extremists are going to unleash eight years of pent-up frustration in a torrent of attacks that will rival what we saw in 2013.

Except this time, the new Governor is all too willing to sign whatever comes his way.

New Jersey gun owners survived Governors Florio, McGreevey, and Corzine. Somehow, we will survive Governor Murphy too, but it’s going to take everything we’ve got – everything. It’s going to take our time, our energy, our faith, and our resources. We’ll have to do battle publicly, privately, in the media, and in the courts. We’ll have to persevere when it seems hopeless, fight when it seems unwinnable, and march fearlessly into battle, over and over, with the odds stacked badly against us.

 Gov. Murphy Attacks What Little there is of Right to Carry in New Jersey ~VIDEO

New Jersey – -(
At a recent “gun safety” announcement, Governor Murphy, Senate
President Stephen Sweeney, and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal launched a
full scale attack on the right of law-abiding citizens to defend
themselves with a firearm outside the home, otherwise known as right to

Murphy announced an intention to reverse Governor
Christie’s executive order allowing those facing serious threats to
qualify for a handgun carry permit, and to challenge any federal action
on right to carry reciprocity.

Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs Executive Director Scott Bach slammed the move.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly held that police have no duty to protect individual citizens,
which means you’re on your own in an emergency. It is an outrage that
the same government that abandons its duty to keep us safe is also
working to prevent us from protecting ourselves. Governor Murphy will
have the blood of more innocents like Carol Bowne on his hands.”
continued, “New Jersey is going to have to be dragged, kicking and
screaming, into legal recognition of the right to defend yourself
outside the home. Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs is
more than happy to oblige and will be at the forefront of the movement
to restore this fundamental right.”

 Recently uncovered court documents related to Special Counsel Robert 
Mueller’s time as FBI Director show his lack of anything resembling credibility. 
The man who is responsible for investigating allegations of Trump/Russia 
collusion was involved in releasing deceptive statements that helped cover up 
a Saudi family’s involvement in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that 
shocked America and helped launch the modern surveillance state.

Mueller led the FBI from September 4, 2001 to September 4, 2013. One week after Mueller assumed his new job, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners, using three of them to destroy the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and severely damage the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day and more than another 6,000 were injured, many of them later dying from their injuries.
Fifteen of the 9/11 terrorists were citizens of Saudi Arabia.

Over the years, evidence of Saudi involvement has continued to come to light. In September 2011 — 10 years after the attacks — Florida Bulldog, a non-profit watchdog news group based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, published an excellent piece of investigative journalism revealing the existence of the secret FBI investigation of a Saudi family living in Sarasota, Florida, with apparent ties to the 9/11 attackers.
Mueller — who was still at the helm of the FBI at the time the article was published — was involved in the “public release of deceptive official statements about” that secret investigation, according to a recent article from the Bulldog. As the recent article says:

The misleading statements, issued by FBI officials in Miami and Tampa, were made within days of a September 2011 Florida Bulldog story disclosing the existence of the investigation and reporting that Congress had been kept in the dark about it.
The statements sought to discredit the story, asserting that agents had found no connection between the Sarasota Saudi family and the 9/11 plot. In fact, the FBI’s own files contained at least three reports that said the opposite: that agents found “many connections” between the family and “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.” The FBI released those reports later amid continuing Freedom of Information (FOI) litigation brought by Florida Bulldog.

The New American reached out to the Bulldog and spoke with Dan Christensen, the founder of the organization and writer of the article. Christensen is no newcomer to investigative journalism. After an award-winning career as an investigative reporter with the Miami Herald, he started the Bulldog in 2009 as a “nonprofit, independent and nonpartisan news organization that seeks to provide authoritative reporting in the public interest while upholding high standards of fairness and accuracy.”

When asked to what degree Mueller was responsible for the “deceptive statements” that “sought to discredit the story,” Christensen said, “We do not know for sure or completely that Mr. Mueller ordered the release of these deceptive statements.” Christensen added, “What we do know is that he was the FBI director at the time, we do know that this was called to his attention — that’s something we’ve just recently learned.” Not only was Mueller aware of the memo released by FBI agents, there is also a matter of “the timing,” Christensen said. “We do know that the timing of the memo of which he was apprised about that contained further inaccuracies was the same time — the same day — that at least one of these misleading statements was put out by the FBI in Tampa,” he told The New American.

As part of its efforts toward investigative journalism, the Bulldog engages in litigation — particularly filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and court documents. The Bulldog website lists the documents referenced in its investigative reporting, and those documents are very revealing. For instance, the FBI — under the direction of Mueller — released a statement claiming, “At no time did the FBI develop evidence that connected the family members to any of the 9/11 hijackers as suggested in the article, and there was no connection found to the 9/11 plot.” However, the Bulldog website lists documents showing that this FBI statement is false.

As the Bulldog reported:

The same day the white paper was prepared for Director Mueller, Sept. 15, 2011, FBI Tampa Public Affairs Officer David Couvertier sent a similarly worded email to the Tampa Bay Times on behalf of Special Agent in Charge Steven E. Ibison: “At no time did the FBI develop evidence that connected the family members to any of the 9/11 hijackers as suggested in the article, and there was no connection found to the 9/11 plot.”
Florida Bulldog’s Miami attorney, Thomas Julin, filed court papers last week asserting a “red flag” has been raised in the case by disclosure of the FBI director’s involvement.

“That Mueller received a briefing about the Sarasota investigation suggests that the issues the Bulldog raised required the attention of the FBI’s highest authority,” Julin wrote.

The circumstances further suggest that Director Mueller approved the deception in which the FBI engaged.
Mueller did not respond to questions emailed to his office on Tuesday.
The two-page white paper, not attributed to any individual, is likewise interesting for what it did not tell Mueller. For example, it made no mention of the 2002 FBI reports stating that “many connections” were found between the al-Hijjis and the 9/11 hijackers. Nor did it discuss whether the FBI withheld the results of its Sarasota investigation from Congress, as former Florida Sen. Bob Graham, co-chair of Congress’ Joint Inquiry into 9/11, has said under oath.

So, Mueller — who is now the special counsel leading the probe into allegations of Trump/Russia collusion — was aware (as FBI Director) that the FBI made false statements denying that agents had found “many connections” between the Saudi family living in Sarasota and the 9/11 plot.

This information frankly does more than call Mueller’s credibility into question; it leaves it in tatters. In more than eight months of digging, the Mueller probe has produced nothing — innuendo and insinuation notwithstanding — to show that President Trump or anyone in his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. And yet the former FBI director turned special counsel has continued (and is continuing) to lead what increasingly looks a witch-hunt, even as evidence of his own wrongdoing in the cover-up of Saudi connections to 9/11 come to light.

 FRANKFORT, Ky. — Churches in Kentucky took time on Sunday to pray for 
those affected by Tuesday’s school shooting in Benton, which took the lives of 
two students and injured more than a dozen others, after Gov. Matt Bevin 
declared the day to be a statewide day of prayer.

“We have seen evil and the face of evil as it has emerged, and the acts it has perpetrated on this community,” he said on Friday. “But I’ll tell you what’s stronger than evil: it’s good, and in the end, God wins. That’s a fact.”

Last Tuesday, 15-year-old sophomore Gabe Parker walked into Marshall County High School with a handgun and began firing, causing students to pour out of the building as they ran for their lives.
“You could see students dropping their bags and just start running, pushing past each other,” student Taylor Droke told WZTV. “Everyone in cars started turning around and driving away. Kids were jumping the fence around the school and running through the woods.”

By the time Parker was apprehended, 20 students were struck by gunfire, with one dying on the scene and another passing away at the hospital.

Gov. Bevin expressed deep sorrow over the tragedy, taking to both social media and a community event to address what he called the “cultural problem” of violence in America—more specifically, how forms of entertainment desensitize the viewer to bloodshed and murder.

“Look at our popular culture. Look at our movies. The violence [and] the disregard for the value of human life,” he said in an online video. “We have a culture of death of death in America. We can pretend we don’t. We can think that people can separate fact from fiction—from their lives from that which they see—but if they are immersed in it at every turn, in television, in movies, in music…”

Bevin urged parents to be attentive to what their children are watching, and encouraged youth to be careful about what they put in their eyes and ears. He also admonished film producers to realize the effect of the content of their movies on viewers.

“I know that we’re living in a day and age where [producers think] we need to shock people more than the last time or they won’t pay attention … The shock value maybe gets people to pay attention to something, puts eyes on something, and you can make a buck, but at what price?” Bevin asked. “It’s robbing us of the very fabric of our nation and it’s killing our young people.”

View the video in full below.

On Friday, Bevin signed a proclamation urging Kentucky residents to dedicate Sunday as a day of prayer for those affected by Tuesday’s shooting.

“I want to encourage this community to do what it’s doing, which is pray,” he stated at the Children’s Art Activities Center, according to the Courier Journal. “And I also want to encourage every single faith-based organization, church, house of worship, everyone this Sunday to pray for Marshall County.”

Among the churches that organized a special time of prayer or included prayer in their regular Sunday service was Greater Norris Chapel Baptist Church in Henderson, which held a dedicated prayer gathering this afternoon. Crossroads Church in Lexington also took time to discuss the matter this morning during its worship service. Impact Church, just 10 miles from the school, held a vigil this week as well.

Mark Stecher, pastor of Crossroads Church, told WKYT-TV that his church has been talking about being a good neighbor as no one can go it alone.

“It’s almost impossible to process the loss and pain without other people,” he stated. “If we are by ourselves, that isolation ends up freezing us and paralyzing us. So it’s the most healthy thing you can do to reach out and be great neighbors to each other.”

Transgenderism and Our ChildrenTRANSGENDERISM and Our Children
By Maria Kneas and Lois Putnam
Marilyn, a 70ish grandmother, walked through
the international airport in Denver, Colorado, thinking about the
flight she would be taking in less than an hour. She noticed a young
couple up ahead and saw that the man had a baby in a front pack. The
baby looked to be around six months old and was peering out at the
moving crowd of people. Marilyn stopped when she reached the couple
(she never could resist babies) and said, “What a darling baby that
is. Is it a boy or a girl?”
The father looked Marilyn in the eye and said,
“We don’t believe in gender labeling for babies, so for now it is just
“baby” until it is old enough to decide whether it wants to be a boy
or a girl.” Marilyn was speechless and shocked. She looked deep into
the man’s eyes, hoping for some understanding. She tried to respond,
but her words were frozen. As she walked away, still in shock, she
pondered on the future of that little child and knew she had just
witnessed a tragedy. This true account is unfortunately indicative of
the times in which we live.


By Maria Kneas
The Bible says, “God is not the author of
confusion” (1 Corinthians 14:33). Therefore, anything that promotes it
is in opposition to God and His ways. If you want to see some serious
confusion in action, then look at a photo of a bearded man wearing a
dress and high heels.1
In the Bible, God makes clear distinctions
between light and darkness, good and evil, male and female, adults and
children, animals and humans, plants and animals, living and
inanimate. These distinctions or separations are clearly important to
God, and anything that attempts to destroy these distinctions is
trying to undermine foundational principles that God established. Such
efforts constitute rebellion against God, and the end result is
attacks against Christians who try to live according to biblical
principles and morality. This is part of what Dr. Henry Morris calls
“the long war against God.”2
The transgender movement is a prime example of
this conflict because the stated goal of transgender activists is to
“burn the binary.” By that, they mean making people become incapable
of thinking in terms of male and female. In an article titled, “We’ll
Win the Bathroom Battle When the Binary Burns” written by Riki
Wilchins (an activist who has gone through sex change surgery), he
describes this as being the “dominant, hetero-binary structure of boy
vs. girl.”3
This kind of thinking can make your head spin,
but you did read that correctly. There are some people out there who
literally want to get our society to the point where we become
incapable of thinking in terms of male versus female. They don’t want
us to be able to tell the difference between boys and girls (and
definitely not to say it publicly), and they want to train children to
think like that at early ages. They also want to punish Christian
parents who try to protect their children from this. In reality, the
transgender movement has made Christianity and what it stands for its
sworn enemy.
There are also other movements which are trying
to destroy the distinctions that God created. For example, there are
attempts to legalize pedophilia.4 This denies the differences between
children and adults. There are efforts, which confuse animals with
humans, to legalize bestiality,5 to give animals the right to file
lawsuits,6 and to combine human and animal DNA.7 There are even
attempts to erase the distinctions between living creatures and
inanimate things (e.g., New Zealand has given citizenship to a river,8
and Saudi Arabia has given citizenship to a human-looking robot named
Thus, the transgender movement is part of a
broader, more far-reaching attempt to make people become unable to
rationally relate to the world God created. This deliberate denial of
reality is opposed to reason, biblical morality, and common sense.
Transgenderism is especially harmful because it results in undermining
the sanity, faith, and morals of children, starting at very young
ages. A growing number of American public schools are pushing
transgenderism on five-year-olds in kindergarten.10 In England, this
is being done to two-year-old children.11
The Williams Institute is a public policy
research institute and lobby group based at the UCLA School of Law. It
was created to promote the LGBT agenda. One of their scholars wrote
an article saying that three and a half percent of American adults
identify as being lesbian, homosexual, or bisexual, and 0.3% of adults
identify as being transgender.12 That means that less than one-third
of one percent of adults identify as being transgender.
How can such a small group have such a huge
impact on our culture? What are the goals of these activists? And how
is this going to impact Christians?
Kaeley Triller Haver is the Co-Founder of Hands
Across the Aisle Women’s Coalition. She says that the transgender
movement is “religious indoctrination of a cult-like nature.”13 That
makes sense to me because I have a friend whose brother got trapped in
Scientology. The level of intensity, delusion, and propaganda
involved with transgender activism reminds me of the kind of
heavy-duty pressure and brainwashing that my friend’s brother went
through in Scientology. He tried to get out, but they were able to
force him to stay.
Jane Robbins is a senior fellow at the American
Principles Project. She says that the transgender movement is
creating social chaos by undermining families, parental rights, and
“the very foundations of human existence.” She calls it “a diabolical
but ingenious way of remaking society.”14
As we will see below, transgenderism is the
beginning of a kind of denial of reality that expands to include race,
age, and species (human versus animal). Eventually, it winds up with
people who claim to be things that don’t even exist. Once upon a time,
people who seriously denied reality like this were said to be
delusional or mentally ill. But now, some people are trying to
normalize such delusions and make them become politically correct.
We all need to develop the ability to deal with
painful realities. For example, I’m a cancer survivor. Years ago, I
had radical surgery, followed by chemotherapy. That was a painful
process to go through, but it saved my life. If I had decided to
“identify” as being healthy instead of taking care of that very real
problem, then I would have died a slow and painful death.
When people deny reality, the loving thing to
do is to help them deal with it in realistic ways—not go along with
their delusions. Having us agree with their delusions may make them
feel better for the moment, but the long-term results can be
catastrophic. Truth trumps feelings.

A Continuum of Denying Reality

TRANS-GENDER: When men imagine
they are women (or vice versa), that is transgender. Instead of
trying to get their thinking to line up with reality, these people try
to force reality to change in order to line up with their
imagination. This starts out with wearing different clothing and
eventually can wind up with people getting sex-change surgery and
taking hormones in order to try to look like what they feel like. But
“trans” goes even further than that. For example, some people think
they are an animal trapped inside a human’s body. And some people have
found other ways to try to re-define themselves.
I’m going to describe some very strange things.
You may want to see them with your own eyes, so I have provided all
of these with endnotes giving Internet articles and links. If you go
to these articles, you will be able to see lots of photos.
TRANS-AGE: A married man with
seven children decided he is really a six-year-old girl. He left his
wife and children and has found an older couple who took him in.15 A
grown man with children believes he is a child, and in order to live
out his fantasy, he has abandoned his wife and seven children.
TRANS-RACE: Rachel Dolezal was
born white, but she identifies as being black. She used to work for
the NAACP, but when it was discovered that she was really white, she
lost her job. She is calling for “racial fluidity” to be accepted.16
The state of Delaware is proposing an education
regulation that allows children to self-identify their gender and
race without the knowledge or consent of their parents. That includes
attending gender-specific classes about sexuality and participating in
sports as members of their self-chosen gender.17 In other words, a
white girl can formally claim to be a black boy (or vice versa) and
act accordingly without having her parents know anything about it.
TRANS-SPECIES: The early stage
of trans-species can be seen in “human pups.” These are people who
dress up like dogs. They can take this to extremes such as sleeping in
a dog training crate. There are thousands of “human pups” in England
alone. “Furries” carry this a step further and take on the persona of
the animal. This can include sexual behavior. A “fur” convention in
Reno, Nevada drew 3,000 people, 700 of whom were in “fursuits.”18
With the “fur pups” and even with the “furries,”
there is strange thinking and behavior, but it is reversible. If
these people change their thinking, then they can take off their
costumes and go back to a relatively normal life. However, there are
other people who make drastic changes that cannot be reversed. We see
that with the transgender people who get sex-change surgery. Clothing
can be changed, and hormone therapy can be reversed, but the surgery
is permanent.
There is a man who believes he is a tiger
trapped inside a human body. He has gotten his entire body and face
tattooed to look more like a tiger. He has had surgery and dental work
done so that his face and teeth look more tigerish. He has gotten
false whiskers implanted into his face.19
Another man identifies with his pet parrot so
much so that he got his ears cut off in order to look more like him.
He also got his face and eyeballs tattooed, and he wants to get
surgery in order to make his nose look more like a beak.20
TRANS-REALITY: There is a man
(who became a transgender woman) who believes he is a female dragon
trapped in a man’s body. He has had his ears and nose removed in order
to look more like a dragon. He has extensive tattoos, including eye
coloring, and he has a forked tongue.21 This man also has a child, a
beautiful little boy. I can’t imagine what this must be doing to his

Who Defines Reality?

According to the Bible, God created everything.
Therefore, God is the one who defines reality. The oldest sin in the
book is to want to be like God (Genesis 3:5). That is what led to the fall of Adam and Eve, and it’s also what caused Lucifer to fall.
When the Bible describes a time of lawlessness
and apostasy in ancient Israel, it says that “every man did that which
was right in his own eyes” (Judges 17:6). The problem was that men
were trying to define right and wrong for themselves instead of
accepting what God has to say about it.
Have you ever noticed how many times in the
Bible God tells people what is right and what is wrong? The point is
that we don’t see the really big picture; only God does. And
therefore, only He is qualified to determine what is right and what is
wrong. Our job is to take what God says to heart and try to live by
it. God told us:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are
higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Most transgenders (and trans-speciesists, etc.)
probably don’t realize it, but when they try to define who or what
they are themselves, instead of accepting the way that God created
them, they are trying to play God. They are setting themselves up
above God. That is a recipe for moral and spiritual disaster, and it
can have devastating practical consequences.
For example, what will happen to children in
Delaware who try to change their gender and/or their race without
telling their parents? What will happen to that little boy whose
father claims to be a female dragon? Is that his daddy or his mommy?
Or is he living with a dragon? And what will happen to the children of
that man who now claims to be a six-year-old girl? That level of
rejection and abandonment must be devastating, and their father’s
example of denying reality could set them on the path for tragic
events in their lives.
People who are afflicted with such problems
need our prayers. The loving thing to do is to try to help them
overcome their delusions and become what God created them to be.
God knows what He is doing. When He created us,
He did not make a mistake. He knew what we should be. Our job is to
come into agreement with God.

Weaponizing Sexual Anarchy

Like humanism and communism,22 sexual anarchy23
activists want to destroy Christianity and undermine Christian
morality. Sexual anarchy of all kinds is being used as a weapon to
attack Christianity. The transgender activists seem to be especially
adept at creating a lot of chaos in a short time.
With communism, we can look at their goals to
see how they overlap with those of the transgender movement. On
January 10, 1963, a congressman read 45 communist goals into the
Congressional Record. These were excerpted from Cleon Skousen’s book The Naked Communist. They include the following:

Undermine cultural standards of morality
Make LGBT behavior appear to be “normal, natural, healthy”
Infiltrate churches and undermine belief in the Bible
Discredit and undermine the family
Reduce parental influence over children
Take control of the psychiatric profession and use it to control people24

The Bottom Line

When God set boundaries for our identity and
our sexuality, He did that in order to protect us. What people have
been doing makes it all too obvious that fallen human beings need
God’s protection. We need to do things God’s way, as described in the
Bible. If we don’t do that, then we will self-destruct, and we are
likely to harm others in the process.
The sexual anarchy movement is producing
“experts” who want to tell us what to think and how to live. However,
God knows more about us than such people do. Therefore, we need to
trust what God says in the Bible instead of falling prey to the
delusions of self-proclaimed “experts.”

I Am Jazz

In Sacramento, California at the Rocklin Academy charter school, a kindergarten teacher read the transgender picture book I Am Jazz;

this incident was to these little ones as well as to their uninformed

On December 7, 2017, nationwide “Community/School Readings” of I Am Jazz

can be done even at a preschool age. Inside I Am Jazz’s cover
jacket, it reads, “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew
that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.” It continues, “She loved
pink . . . and didn’t feel like herself in boy’s clothing.” It ends,
“This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who
diagnosed Jazz as transgender and explained that she was born this
way.” These three sentences concisely spell out what the book hopes to
I Am Jazz’s final page is titled,
“TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation” and states, “TKPRF is committed
to the premise that Gender Dysphoria is something children can’t
control, and therefore, society needs to embrace them.” It insists,
“Families need to support their children and allow them to grow up
free of gender roles.” This page’s purpose is to convince readers of
the need for transgender acceptance everywhere. Nowhere does it tell
how a growing number of doctors, psychologists, and other
professionals are challenging the claims that people are born this
way. Nor does it tell about the abusive drug cocktail of hormones
trans children later take or the dreadful surgeries that complete the
Because I Am Jazz is being used to
propagate the transgender movement, particularly to young children,
let’s take a closer look at this book, the so-called “essential tool
for parents and teachers.”3

I Am Jazz Co-author—Jessica Herthel

Jessica Herthel, the book’s co-author, is a
Broward County, Florida mom of three and an all-out advocate of the
transgender agenda. Herthel, having met Jazz’s mom at a community
function, soon formed a friendship with her and her little boy who
became “a trans girl” renamed “Jazz.” Herthel then went on to co-write
the book with Jazz, telling what it is like to be a trans kid.
As a result of writing I Am Jazz, Herthel
has become a recognized LGBTQ advocate on many fronts. It began with
her volunteering for the Florida Broward County Schools (sixth largest
district in the USA) where soon she was designing inclusive lesson
plans and purchasing diverse books for elementary classrooms. Later,
she became the primary content editor of “Broward County’s LGBTQ
Critical Support Guide” presented to all district administrators in
2014. After, Herthel worked as the Education Director at the Stonewall
National Museum and Archives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida,  which is a
nonprofit that shares the culture of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender people and the role they play in society.
Beyond Florida, Herthel travels nationwide spreading the trans-kids agenda using I Am Jazz
as a jumping off point. This message has taken her to such diverse
places as: Mt. Horeb Public Library, Mt. Horeb, WI (the Mt. Horeb School
System refused to allow her to read I Am Jazz in a public
school setting, so it was read in the public library); Temple Bat Yahm,
New Port Beach, CA (welcoming Jewish congregation for all including
the LGBT community); and The Human Rights Campaign “Time to Thrive”
Conference in Dallas, TX. (HRC partnered with the National Education
Association and the American Counseling Association to reach out to
LGBTQ youth.)4
The Human Rights Campaign considers Jazz
Jennings their foundational “Youth Ambassador.” HRC has a website
called with lesson plans to aid in creating
LGBTQ-inclusive schools. Its “Top 10 Books for a Welcoming School”
includes I Am Jazz and an accompanying lesson. I would urge
you to check out this site to view this invasive school agenda; while
it gives the appearance of being about safe schools and stopping
bullying, much of its material is about other causes.5

I Am Jazz—Its Transgender Agenda

I Am Jazz is designed to be read to
preschool through grade three, introducing them to transgender ideas. 
Herthel begins by presenting Jazz as a “girl” whose favorite color is
pink and who likes girly things like drawing, dancing, and putting on
make up.  Most of all, Jazz is mesmerized by “mermaids.”
Now, Jazz’s best friends are Casey and Samantha
with whom Jazz plays dress up in high heels and princess gowns. They
also do fun things like turning cart wheels, or jumping on
trampolines.  However, as a “sad-faced Jazz” says, “But, I’m not
exactly like Samantha and Casey.”
To explain, there’s a page of kids’ drawings
showing a very unhappy Jazz. Below this, Herthel unleashes these
troubling sentences, “I have a girl brain, but a boy body. This is
called transgender. I was born this way.”
Herthel records Jazz’s transition saga as a
two-year-old boy starting with Jazz’s mom saying he was a good boy,
and him correcting her as he retorted, “No Mama.  Good GIRL!” Herthel
also writes, “At first my family was confused. They’d always thought
of me as a boy.”
The next pages show Jazz’s brothers and sister.
His brothers comment that his dress-up antics are “girls stuff” while
his sister comments that his girl thoughts, dreams, and ambitions
made him “a funny kid.”
Whenever he went out, the text continues, his
parents had him wear his “boy clothes” which made him mad!  One then
reads this startling thought, “Pretending I was a boy felt like
telling a lie.” Talk about confusion. Just imagine a child’s
puzzlement to this thought.
Then came “an amazing day” when all was
changed; his parents took him to a doctor who asked many
questions. There, says the text, he heard the word “transgender” for
the first time. His parents heard the words, “Gender Dysphoria.”
That night, relates Jazz, for the first time
his parents told him, “Be who you are.” This caused him to smile and
smile as he went to bed dressed in a girl’s nightgown. Do what you
want, and whatever makes you happy is the sense one gets here, making
one think of Judges 17:6 that reads, “. . . every man did that which
was right in his own eyes.”
The book fast forwards to Jazz at school. Here,
like Jazz’s family, his friends and teachers were “confused.” Upset
with his teacher, Jazz found it hard to have to use the boy’s bathroom
and be on the boy’s teams. Jazz longs to be with Casey and Samantha.
Finally, the teachers change their minds, allowing Jazz to use the
girl’s rest room and to play sports with the girls.
At this point, Jazz shares how mean some of the
children are. “This,” says Jazz, “makes me feel crummy.” Here, of
course, the teacher would stop and talk about not bullying or making
fun of someone who is different. The children listening to I Am Jazz
are made to take sides with Jazz because “being different like this
is special!” The book ends with a beaming Jazz who declares, “I am
having fun. I am proud. I am Jazz.”

I Am Jazz—The Celebrity

What has been the result of reading and sharing
this innocent looking, but oh so influential picture book? Well, Jazz
has been promoted as one super star—one courageous reality star (TLC
TV)—one influential teen (Time Magazine)—one true to myself person (I Am Jazz)—one
amazing LGBTQ activist (Human Rights Campaign)—one honorary
co-founder (TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation)—a trans-kid poster
child. And I must add—one exploited young person!
How sad one feels for a child such as Jazz,
whose parents, believing they were doing this in love, allowed him to
become a trans kid following the world’s upside-down transgender
ideology guidelines, and how much more should the reading of this story
make us mindful of the children suffering because of it. It should
make us want to do all we can to stop others from following in Jazz’s
footsteps. A wonderful verse to memorize and share with children is
found in Psalm 139:14 which reads, “I will praise thee; for I am
fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my
soul knoweth right well.”

I Am Jazz—The Consequences

This picture story is meant to tug at one’s
heart. Its story leads its readers to believe the lie that children
can be born with gender confusion and that if such behaviors are
sanctioned by a doctor, as in Jazz’s case, even young children can
identify as a trans kid. But this book is only part of the story. For
as a transgender child gets ready for puberty, harmful hormones must
be taken, after which comes invasive surgery. To understand these
procedures, please read quotes from the article referenced below.
Dr. Michelle Cretella is the President of the American College of Pediatricians. A July 3, 2017 Daily Signal article,
“I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My
Field and Produced Large Scale Child Abuse” lays out some facts. Dr.
Cretella begins by commenting that transgender ideology not only has
infected our laws ( e.g. bathrooms) but “has intruded into the lives
of the most innocent among us—our children.”6
Dr. Cretella says there’s a “new normal” where
doctors in gender clinics are “affirming children who are distressed
by their biological sex.”7 This condition, she writes, once dubbed
gender-identity disorder, was renamed “gender dysphoria” in 2013. Now,
these doctors, as did Jazz’s doctor, “tell parents to treat their
children as the gender they desire, and to place them on puberty
blockers around 11 or 12 if they are gender dysphoric.”8 And if by
sixteen, they insist they’re trapped in the wrong body, cross-sex
hormones are then given. After, teens as young as sixteen may
have “bottom surgeries” or “sex reassignment surgeries.” As of a
recent piece I read, Jazz is now at this frightening point.
In her article, Dr. Cretella lists eight basic
facts about transgenderism including: twin studies that show no one is
born “trapped in the body of the wrong sex;” puberty blockers have
not proven safe; cross-sex hormones are associated with dangerous
health risks; neuroscience shows youth lack adult ability for risk
assessment; and transition-affirming procedures haven’t solved
transgender suicide. She states that the transition-affirming
movement, said to help children, is inflicting a grave injustice on
them, adding:

These professionals are using the myth that
people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive,
uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a
psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in
the vast majority of cases.9

Dr. Cretella finishes with these sobering words:

These harms constitute nothing less than
institutional child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the
use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment
surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting
gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies. It is
time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health
professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and
unite to take action.10

How about the silent majority of Christians? What are we doing?

Parent’s Response 

In the case of the Rocklin Academy reading of I Am Jazz, parents
banded together to confront the board. When the board declared they
would not necessarily notify parents prior to using such materials, nor
could parents legally opt out of these presentations, many
parents pulled their students out from Rocklin. Parents must work toward
having the right to opt out their students
should gender-related materials be presented just as they now can opt
out when sexual materials are used.11
Fearing harsh reaction to their stories, two Rocklin parents anonymously went to Fox News
Martha MacCallum to tell of their children’s reactions to the
academy incident. The first parent told how her daughter, after being
present at that kindergarten reading, while bathing caught a reflection
of herself with her hair slicked back, and tearfully cried she had
changed into a boy. The other parent told how her daughter (now a first
grader) on the playground greeted the “trans girl” that had been
presented in the kindergarten that June day by his male name and was
promptly reprimanded by the principal for “misgendering his new name.”12
In sum, Christian parents must be active at
their schools, be informed of transgender issues, be able to talk with
their own children, be into the Word so as to be able to stand for
truth, and be into prayer for their children, family, and schools.

Teacher’s Response

Christian teachers too must prepare themselves for the time that they will be required to read such a book as I Am Jazz
Do your research now. Prayerfully prepare for a coming day when one
must either comply with the godless demands of the public schools or
leave one’s job. As Daniel of old, in whom was found “an excellent
spirit,” one must stand up, and as the old song “Dare to Be a
Daniel” challenged, “Dare to be a Daniel, Dare to stand alone!, Dare to
have a purpose firm! and Dare to make it known!”
In today’s world, there are many who want to
silence “God-fearing upstanders”—school systems and
pressure-group organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign to name
a couple. How is this done? By taking away rights to stand up for
beliefs and by labeling these upstanders with all kinds of names. And
as some do, “shouting you down!”  One such eminent doctor, Dr. Paul
McHugh, now 85, has been maligned and mocked and called
a “transphobe.” Why is this? Of  “transgender” children, Dr. McHugh
dared to write such things as this:
Misguided doctors at medical centers . . . have
begun to treat this behavior by administrating puberty-delaying
hormones to render later sex surgeries less onerous—even though
the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.13

Your Responsibility—Be An Upstander, Not A Bystander!

Whether or not you have children or
grandchildren in the public schools, you as a Christian must stand
firm in your convictions. Whether or not the transgender agenda has
yet to come to your school or your school system, you as a Christian
must not be a bystander! Get busy, become familiar with
the transgender movement, and be an upstander—that is one who is not
afraid to stand up for something in which he believes—in this case,
the plight of little children of whom our Lord Jesus said in Matthew

But whoso shall offend one of these little
ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were
hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the

The transgender agenda is already being
practiced in some schools and is soon coming to schools
nationwide. For the sake of our children, we cannot be apathetic; we
must stand up for truth. Remember Paul’s admonition in Ephesians
6:10-11, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the
power of his might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be
able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good
evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put
bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

Two authors from Great Britain portray a stunningly clear picture of New Age spirituality. They explain:

[T]he keynote of it appears to be a movement
for synthesis derived from an understanding of the underlying unity
behind all things and the sense of oneness that this brings.

This oneness of all life is the crux of the New Age movement.1

Catholic monk M. Basil Pennington defined the contemplative spiritual worldview in his book Thomas Merton My Brother. He related:

The Spirit enlightened him [Merton] in the
true synthesis [unity] of all and in the harmony of that huge chorus
of living beings. In the midst of it he lived out a vision of a new
world, where all divisions have fallen away and the divine goodness is
perceived and enjoyed as present in all and through all.2

The first viewpoint describes God as the
oneness of all existence. In Merton’s new world, God is perceived as
being present “in all and through all.” It certainly appears that the
same spirit enlightened both parties. The only difference was Merton’s
revelation worked in a Christian context just as occultist Alice
Bailey predicted. Unfortunately, this context is now commonplace in
Catholic circles, becoming so in mainline Protestant churches, and
being eagerly explored and embraced by an ever-increasing number of
evangelical Christians.

Evangelical leaders now debate whether such
spiritual truths as resting in God are the same as contemplative
silence. Based on documentations I have been presenting for many
years, I believe contemplative prayer has no place in true
Christianity. Scripture clearly teaches that with salvation comes an
automatic guidance system—the Holy Spirit. Lewis Sperry Chafer, in his
outstanding book Grace: The Glorious Theme, spells out this truth with crystal-clear clarity:

It is stated in Romans 5:5 that “the Spirit
is given to us.” This is true of every person who is saved. The Spirit
is the birth-right in the new life. By Him alone can the character
and service that belongs to the normal daily life of the Christian be
realized. The Spirit is the “All-Sufficient One.” Every victory in the
new life is gained by His strength, and every reward in glory will be
won only as a result of His enabling power.3

Richard Foster
Richard Foster

Show me a Scripture in the Bible in which the
Holy Spirit is activated or accessed by contemplative prayer. If such a
verse exists, wouldn’t it be the keynote verse in defense of
contemplative prayer?

None exists!

I want to emphasize what I believe cuts through
all the emotional appeal that has attracted so many to teachers like
Richard Foster and Brennan Manning and really boils the issue down to
its clearest state.

In his book Streams of Living Water,
Richard Foster emanates his hoped-for vision of an “all inclusive
community” that he feels God is forming today. He sees this as “a
great, new gathering of the people of God.”4

On the surface, this might sound noble and
sanctifying, but a deeper examination will expose elements that line
up more with Alice Bailey’s vision than with Jesus Christ’s. Foster prophesies:

I see a Catholic monk from the hills of
Kentucky standing alongside a Baptist evangelist from the streets of
Los Angeles and together offering up a sacrifice of praise. I see a

The only place in “the hills of Kentucky” where
Catholic monks live is the Gethsemane Abbey, a Trappist monastery.
This also, coincidentally, was the home base of Thomas Merton.
Let me explain this significant connection. In the summer of 1996,
Buddhist and Catholic monks met together to dialogue in what was billed
the “Gethsemane Encounter.”6 David Steindl-Rast, a Zen-Buddhist
trained monk and close friend of Thomas Merton, facilitated this

During the encounter, presentations on Zen
meditation and practice from the Theravedan Buddhist tradition were
offered.7 One of the speakers discussed the “correlation of the
Christian contemplative life with the lives of our Buddhist sisters
and brothers.”8

For these monks and the Baptist evangelist to
be “a people,” as Richard Foster says, someone has to change. Either
the monks have to abandon their Buddhist convictions and align with
the Baptists, or the Baptists have to become contemplative style
Baptists and embrace the monks’ beliefs. That is the dilemma in
Foster’s “great gathering of God.”

Mystic David Steindl-Rast once asked Thomas
Merton what role Buddhism played in his going deeper into the
spiritual life. Merton replied quite frankly: “I think I couldn’t
understand Christian teaching the way I do if it were not in the light
of Buddhism.”9

Thomas Merton

Did Merton mean that in order to understand
what Christianity really is, you have to change your consciousness? I
believe that is exactly what he meant. Once he personally did that
through contemplative prayer, Buddhism provided him with the
explanation of what he experienced. But again the catalyst was
changing his consciousness. This is what I am warning Christians
about. Contemplative prayer is presenting a way to God identical with
all the world’s mystical traditions. Christians are haplessly lulled
into it by the emphasis on seeking the Kingdom of God and greater
piety, yet the apostle Paul described the church’s end-times apostasy
in the context of a mystical seduction. If this practice doesn’t fit
that description, I don’t know what does.

You don’t have to change your consciousness to
grab “aholt” of God (as Brennan Manning insists). All you need is to
be born-again. What Steindl-Rast and the other Gethsemane monks should
have been telling Buddhists is, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

In his book, Ruthless Trust, Brennan
Manning mentions that once Baptist Sunday school teacher, now New
Ager, Sue Monk Kidd eventually came under the mentorship of Dr.
Beatrice Bruteau who authored the book What We Can Learn From the East. Since that title is self-explanatory, it’s easy to understand why Dr. Bruteau would write the preface to a book like The Mystic Heart
by mystic Wayne Teasdale. In the preface, she touts that a universal
spirituality based on mysticism is going to save the world.

It seems that all these people want a better
world. They do not seem like sinister conspirators like those out of a
James Bond film. Yet, it is their niceness that rejects the reality
of the fundamental separation between Man and God. It is their sense
of compassion that feeds their universalism. It is idealism that makes
Manning so attractive and causes him to say that Dr. Bruteau is a
“trustworthy guide to contemplative consciousness.”10

The irony of this is that Manning is completely correct in his statement—Dr. Bruteau is
a reliable guide to contemplative awareness. She has founded two
organizations, the Schola Contemplationis (school for contemplation) and
the very Christian-sounding Fellowship of the Holy Trinity. With the
latter, she is promoted as “a well-known author and lecturer on
contemplative life and prayer.”11 Both of these organizations
incorporate Hindu and Buddhist approaches to spirituality. This should
come as no surprise because Bruteau also has studied with the
Ramakrishna order, which is named after the famous Hindu swami Sri

The Ramakrishna order is dedicated to promoting
the vision of Sri Ramakrishna. He was known for his view that all the
world’s religions were valid revelations from God if you understood
them on the mystical level. He was an early proponent of
interspirituality. According to the book, Wounded Prophet, Henri Nouwen even viewed him in a favorable light and esteemed him as an important spiritual figure.

Sue Monk Kidd (author of The Secret Life of Bees)
became enamored with contemplative spirituality while attending a
Southern Baptist church. We could possibly dismiss that and say she
was just an untaught member of the laity who was spiritually lacking
in discernment. Maybe her spiritual dryness was a result of her not
being grounded firmly enough in the faith. But what about the leaders
and pastors whom so many look up to and who are considered trusted
individuals in the church? Surely they are able to discern what is
spiritually unsound. It seems safe to make this assumption. Right?
Unfortunately, this is no longer the case.

As I noted here,
this purge was several years in the making, and I was – inadvertently –
the one who touched it off. In August 2010, when I gave a talk on Islam
and jihad to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force — one of many such
talks I gave to government agencies and military groups in those years.
While some had counseled me to keep these talks quiet so as to avoid
attracting the ire of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR), the possibility of that pressure seemed to me to make
it all the more important to announce my appearances publicly, so as to
show that the U.S. government was not going to take dictation from a
group linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Those who had urged silence were proven correct, however, for the
Obama administration was indeed disposed to take dictation from CAIR.
CAIR sent a series of letters to Mueller and others demanding that I be
dropped as a counter-terror trainer; the organization even started a “coalition” echoing this demand, and Jesse Jackson and other Leftist luminaries joined it.

At the FBI, Mueller made no public comment on CAIR’s demand, and so
it initially appeared that CAIR’s effort had failed. But I was never
again invited to provide counter-terror training for any government
agency, after having done so fairly regularly for the previous five
years. CAIR’s campaign to keep me from taking part in counter-terror
training was, of course, not personal. They targeted me simply because I
told the truth, just as they would target anyone else who dared do so.
Everyone else who told the truth was similarly targeted and purged.

“Judicial Watch: Mueller Worked With Radical Islamists to Purge
Anti-Terror Training Docs Offensive to Muslims,” by Michael W. Chapman, CNS News, January 23, 2018 (thanks to Lookmann):

Commenting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is
investigating President Trump for alleged “collusion” with Russia,
Judicial Watch said that, as FBI director under President Obama, Mueller
purged the Bureau of all anti-terrorism training material that was
deemed “offensive” to Muslims. This was done, said Judicial Watch, “after secret meetings between Islamic organizations and the FBI chief.”

Judicial Watch obtained the documents on Mueller and the Muslim
groups after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against
the FBI in July 2012. Mueller had met with the Muslims groups on Feb. 8,
2012, after which the curricula purge took place, said Judicial Watch.

“As FBI director, Mueller bent over backwards to please radical Islamist groups and caved into their demands,” said Judicial Watch. “The
agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and
curricula after Mueller met with various Islamist organizations,
including those with documented ties too terrorism.”

“Among them were two organizations— Islamic Society of North America
(ISNA) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—named by the
U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land
Foundation terrorist financing case,” said the government watchdog

After that Feb. 8, 2012 meeting, FBI Director Mueller “assured the
Muslim groups that he had ordered the removal of presentations and
curricula on Islam from FBI offices nationwide,” said Judicial Watch.

“The purge was part of a broader Islamist operation designed to
influence the opinions and actions of persons, institutions, governments
and the public at-large. The records obtained by Judicial Watch also
show similar incidents of Islamic influence operations at the
Departments of Justice and State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the
Obama White House.”

Judicial Watch further reported, “Mueller’s actions have had a
widespread effect because many local law enforcement agencies followed
the FBI’s lead in allowing Islamic groups like CAIR to dictate what
anti-terrorism material could be used to train officers. Among them are
police departments in three Illinois cities— Lombard, Elmhurst and
Highland Park—as well as the New York Police Department (NYPD).”

“In the case of the Lombard Police Department,” said Judicial Watch,
“CAIR asserted that the instructor of a training course called ‘Islamic
Awareness as a Counter-Terrorist Strategy’ was anti-Muslim though there was no evidence to support it. Like the FBI, Lombard officials got rid of the ‘offensive’ course. The NYPD purged a
highly-acclaimed report that’s proven to be a critical tool in
terrorism investigations after three New York Muslims, two mosques and
an Islamic nonprofit filed a lawsuit.”

“Considering Mueller’s role in much of this, it makes him a bizarre
choice to lead the heated Russia investigation,” said the watchdog

How long? Well, sir, considering that you deny the existence of the
motivating ideology behind such attacks and oversee the shunning in
Catholic circles of those who identify it, I’d say indefinitely, insofar
as you’re actively hindering proper analysis of this threat.

Besides all that is below, Pope Francis has claimed fancifully
that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed
to every form of violence.” It has become a superdogma in the Catholic
Church: if you don’t believe that Islam is a Religion of Peace, you will
be ruthlessly harassed and silenced by the U.S. Conference of Catholic
Bishops and the hierarchy elsewhere as well. The bishops of the Catholic
Church are much more concerned that you believe that Islam is a
religion of peace than that you believe in, say, the Nicene Creed.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

“Pope Francis Condemns Taliban Attack: ‘How Long Must Afghan People Bear Such Inhuman Violence?,’” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, January 28, 2018:

On Sunday, Pope Francis denounced the “terrible terrorist
massacre” carried out by Islamic militants of the Taliban in the Afghan
capital of Kabul Saturday.

After his usual midday prayer
of the Angelus in the Vatican Sunday, the Pope turned to the news of
Saturday’s slaughter, addressing the thousands of pilgrims gathered in
Saint Peter’s Square.

“Yesterday painful news arrived from Afghanistan telling of the
terrible terrorist massacre carried out in the capital city of Kabul
leaving nearly one hundred dead and numerous injured,” he said.

“A few days ago, another serious attack also on Kabul had sown terror
and death in a large hotel,” he continued. “How long must the Afghan
people bear this inhuman violence?”…

Pope Francis caused a media stir in early 2017 when he denied the existence of Islamic terrorism.

“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist,
and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said
in a speech to a world meeting of populist movements in the Vatican last

“The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without
equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict
will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode,” he

“There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and
religions—and with intolerant generalizations they become stronger
because they feed on hate and xenophobia,” he said.

The pope’s earlier statements suggesting economic roots to terror provoked
a strong public reaction from the Islamic State terror group, which
insisted that their sole motivation is religious and sanctioned by Allah
in the Qur’an.

Pope Francis “has struggled against reality” in his efforts to
portray Islam as a religion of peace, declared an article in the ISIS
propaganda magazine Dabiq, before going on to urge all Muslims to take up the sword of jihad, the “greatest obligation” of a true Muslim.

Some months before, the Pope Francis appeared to suggest that all religions are equally prone to violence and that Islam and Christianity are fundamentally the same in this regard.

“If I speak of Islamic violence, I must speak of Catholic violence,”
Francis said. “And no, not all Muslims are violent, not all Catholics
are violent. It is like a fruit salad; there’s everything.”

“Hate speech” laws are a tool of the powerful to silence dissenters.
The person or group empowered with determining what is and is not “hate
speech” has total power over the public discourse, and can criminalize
any perspectives that the government does not favor. “Hate speech” laws
are, in short, a tool for tyranny, and the freedom of speech is a
society’s foremost protection against tyranny. The May government is the
betrayer and destroyer of Britain, which is, of course, finished.

“Tory Government REJECTS Petition for a Free Speech Act,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, January 28, 2018:

The British government has rejected a petition calling for a Free Speech Act and an end to laws against so-called ‘hate speech’.

“For several years now the government has been infringing people’s
most basic rights to speak freely on matters, by deeming their speech
‘offensive’ or ‘hateful. and declaring that such speech, even online,
warrants being fined or jailed,” the petition suggests.

“We demand the legal right to Free Speech, in an Act which will bring
an end to the ludicrous notion that ‘hate speech’ and ‘offensive
speech’ deserves people be imprisoned or charged … Ideas must be fought
with other ideas, not with force.”

The petition system
in the United Kingdom allows citizens to have petitions published on a website, subject to certain conditions. The Government is
supposed to respond to petitions which pass 10,000 signatures, and the
Backbench Business Committee is supposed to “consider” petitions which
pass 100,000 signatures for a parliamentary debate.

The Home Office, led by Amber Rudd MP, responded
on behalf of Prime Minister Theresa May’s administration as the Free
Speech petition reached around 16,000 signatures — rejecting it out of

“The Government is committed to upholding free speech, and
legislation is already in place to protect these fundamental rights,”
the statement begins — then immediately contradicts itself, adding:
“However, this freedom cannot be an excuse to cause harm or spread

The statement explains that British citizens have “a right to freedom
of expression under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human
Rights (ECHR)”, but that “This is a qualified right … This means that
free speech is not absolute.”

The right to freedom of expression as described by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights
is certainly qualified, with the document spelling out in no uncertain
terms that free speech rights are “subject to such formalities,
conditions, restrictions or penalties as are prescribed by law and are
necessary in a democratic society, in the interests of national
security, territorial integrity or public safety, for the prevention of
disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, for the
protection of the reputation or rights of others, for preventing the
disclosure of information received in confidence, or for maintaining the
authority and impartiality of the judiciary.”

Critics have pointed out that, far from providing citizens with the
right to freedom of expression, the European Convention in fact provides
governments with the right to restrict freedom of expression on the
flimsiest of pretexts, with the caveats concerning the protections of
“morals” and “the reputation or rights of others” appearing particularly
open to abuse.

The authorities under have if anything appeared more enthusiastic in
cracking down on free speech since the nominally conservative Tory Party
returned to office in 2010, with the police dedicated significant
resources towards arresting people for making “offensive” online
comments despite swingeing budget cuts.

Figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act revealed that
police forces increased arrests under section 127 of the Communications
Act 2003, which makes it illegal to intentionally “cause annoyance,
inconvenience or needless anxiety to another”,  by up to 877 per cent between 2014 and 2016….

 LONDON — The House of Bishops for the Church of England is urging its 
churches to affirm those who have gender dysphoria and says that “everyone’s 
Christian journey—like the journey to find one’s true identity—is unique.” The 
development has raised concern among evangelical groups, which state that the 
notion is an affront to the Creator and the gospel.

William Nye, the secretary for the House of Bishops, released a
document this past week that provides an update on talks among Anglican
leaders regarding the welcoming of “transgenders” into the assembly.

As previously reported,
last July, the General Synod voted to approve a motion that
“recognizing the need for transgender people to be welcomed and affirmed
in their parish church, call[ed] on the House of Bishops to consider
whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be prepared
to mark a person’s gender transition.”

Chris Newlands from Blackburn, Lancashire proposed the motion,
stating, “I hope that we can make a powerful statement to say that we
believe that trans people are cherished and loved by God, who created
them, and is present through all the twists and turns of their lives.”

In 2015, Newlands told reporters that he concocted the idea after
being approached by a girl who identifies as a boy, who wished to be
baptized again under her male name.

“I said, ‘Once you’ve been baptized, you’re baptized,’” Newlands
recalled to the Guardian at that time. “[But] he said, ‘But I was
baptized as a girl, under a different name.’”

“I said, ‘Let me have a think about it.’ So we did, and then we
created a service, which was an affirmation of baptismal vows where we
could introduce him to God with his new name and his new identity,” he

In this month’s guidance, the House of Bishops noted that a number of
synod members agreed with Newlands, and pointed to the words of member
Lucy Gorman, who asserted that the matter is ultimately about “having a
church that is eager to make sure you feel safe and accepted.”

“The House of Bishops welcomes and encourages the unconditional
affirmation of trans people, equally with all people, within the Church,
the body of Christ, and rejoices in the diversity of that one body,
into which all Christians have been baptized by one Spirit,” Nye wrote
in all bold to emphasize the statement.

He also noted, in light of discussions as to whether a person’s “new
identity” should be marked or recognized in any way in worship, that it
had been decided by the House that individual ministers can use the
existing Affirmation of Baptismal Faith, which it called “an ideal
liturgical rite which trans people can use to mark this moment of
personal renewal.”

“The Affirmation … gives priority to the original and authentic
baptism of the individual, and the sacramental change it has effected,
allowing someone who has undergone a serious and lasting change to
re-dedicate their life and identity to Christ,” Nye stated.

“In inviting ministers to use this rite, the House wishes to point
out that everyone’s Christian journey—like the journey to find one’s
true identity—is unique and encourages ministers to treat these possible
pastoral encounters accordingly,” he also asserted. “This approach,
familiar to all who care for people during other major life events,
takes into account each person’s unique experiences.”

Read the document in full here.

However, the release of the update from the synod drew concern from
evangelical groups in the UK, including the organization Christian
Concern, which opined that Nye’s words were an affront to the gospel.

“This is collusion with the blasphemous notion that someone can be
‘born in the wrong body.’ It is blasphemous because it claims that God
gave a person ‘the wrong body,’ when the bodies of people suffering with
gender dysphoria are usually perfectly healthy. Rather, it is their
minds and souls that are the site of suffering and confusion,” it said
in a statement.

“It is also collusion with hatred and resentment of the male or
female body, something that goes directly against what God said when He
created everything, namely that it was ‘very good’ (Genesis 1: 31),” the
group also noted. “It is therefore an attack on the triune God as
Creator of all things. The Christian faith makes no sense at all without
the history of creation and fall.”

“Gender transition is actually a moment of personal rebellion against
the way the person has been made by God. It is therefore a moment of
personal rebellion against God. This should not be celebrated or marked
by the church at all, let alone described as a ‘moment of personal
renewal,’” it lamented.

Gavin Ashenden also wrote for Anglican Ink
in July that the Church of England has presented a false Jesus to the
world in matters of both homosexuality and transgenderism—which is
especially dangerous and damning to those who are perishing.

“Where the real Jesus saves us from our sins and offers us renewal in
the image and furthers the likeness of God, the fake Jesus offers to
make us comfortable in our skins, cozy with our sexual appetites and
untroubled by having the central areas of who we are off limits to the
interference of God,” he outlined.

“This comes under the historic categories of both blasphemy and
heresy,” Ashendon continued. “It interferes with peoples’ salvation. It
replaces faith in the Living Christ with pseudo-therapy. It is an
abandonment of the heart of the gospel; and this is done by people who
when they use the words ‘Jesus, holy, love and acceptance,’ have twisted
the words to mean very different things from what the Church has always

God’s law reads in Deuteronomy 22:5, “The woman shall not wear that
which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s
garment, for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

 ELGIN, Ill. — “Do you know what your children are being taught: Muslims 
believe in the same God as Christians and Jews?” That’s the question a school 
board member in Illinois recently posted online after her daughter came home 
with an assignment that included an article claiming that Christians and Muslims 
worship the same God.

Jeannette Ward of the U46 School Board posted the text of the assignment to her social media page
to show others the kinds of messages that are being presented to
students, and to outline why she voted no on the curriculum the previous

“Judaism, Christianity and Islam are three of the world’s major
religions. While they have many differences, they all believe in the
same God,” the assignment read.

“In each religion, God is ‘revealed’ by a chosen messenger, called a
prophet. Some of the prophets that Jews follow were Noah, Abraham and
Moses. Christians follow these prophets too. They also think that Jesus
was another prophet of the same God,” it stated. “Later, Muhammad
founded Islam by declaring himself a prophet. He said he was the next in
the same line of prophets. He also said that he would be the last.”

The article also claimed that Jews, Christians and Muslims simply
assert that their teachings about that same God are the most accurate
and that these groups have brought violence into the world by seeing
others as being “beyond saving.”

“Muslims, Christians and Jews all worship the same complex God. But
each religion believes that its books and teachings reveal the true
nature of that God,” it read. “This disagreement has shaped the course
of history. The followers of each religion believe that only they will
be saved by God. They see all others as damned. This way of seeing
people, as damned by God and beyond saving, has led to violence and
hatred. It is why these religions both unite and divide.”

The assignment also included quiz questions that featured answers
such as, “Judaism, Christianity and Islam believe in the same God; in
all three religions, prophets revealed that God is complex and that only
certain people will be saved by God.”

Ward became concerned about the lesson that her daughter, who is in
the sixth grade, brought home from school as she called it “utterly
incorrect and false on many levels.” Her post drew much discussion, and a
number of clergymen have weighed in on the matter during the December
and January U46 School Board meetings, including even just this past

One group of religious leaders stated that while they “sympathized”
with Ward’s concerns about the article, they also disagreed with Ward’s
“approach” in expressing concern.

“Each of us believes our own traditions are holy and true. Each of us
also believes that each person, regardless of religious tradition is
valued by God and is therefore worthy of dignity and respect,” they said
in a joint statement. “We believe that honoring these holy teachings of
our varied traditions means engaging in respectful dialogue and using
care when exercising the responsibilities and privileges granted to us
as leaders.”

Ward replied that she saw nothing wrong with her approach as she
simply shared the assignment and advised others about what children were
being taught in the district.

On Monday, a number of other clergy members and citizens spoke in
support of Ward, stating that she should be commended for bringing the
matter to light.

“To say that Allah of the Quran and the God of the Bible are the same
is simply absurd,” said Art Ellingsen, founder of Talk 2 a Pastor,
according to the Chicago Tribune.

“It’s not just something flying in the wind, it’s not just a
political issue, it is a faith issue, and faith issues are very
important to a lot of people in this community,” also said Mark Frusti
of Faith Lutheran Church.

Frusti was one of 12 pastors who also submitted a letter to the board, which served as a response to the statement from the other clergy, and also a means of support for Ward.

“Without proper guidance, this type of article can do nothing but
foster confusion and undermine the work of parents and faith leaders as
those responsible for the spiritual health and wellbeing of our
children,” they wrote. “For that reason, we strongly advocate for its
removal from use within the curriculum.”

As previously reported, in
2016, then-Wheaton professor Larycia Hawkins drew concerns after she
posted to social media a photo of herself wearing a hijab and claimed
that she was doing so to stand in solidarity with Muslims.

“I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a
Christian, are people of the book,” Hawkins asserted. “And as Pope
Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”

Hawkins eventually left the college after controversy erupted, not
about her hijab, but her assertion that Christians and Muslims worship
the same God.

Some used the opportunity to outline why the concept is flawed in light of Scripture.

“Muslims hold that ‘God is one.’ Allah has no partners and assigning
partners to him is shirk, the highest blasphemy,” explained Thabiti
Anyabwile, pastor of Anacostia River Church in Washington, D.C., in a
blog post for the Gospel Coalition. “Christians believe ‘God is one in
three Persons.’ Each Person in the Trinity is fully and eternally God.
Yet there is one God.”

He noted that as Muslims do not worship Jesus, who is God, Christians and Muslims do not worship the same God.

“No one knows God who does not know the Son, who is the only mediator
between God and man,” Anyabwile said. “The goal of Christianity is the
salvation of sinners through the righteousness, substitutionary
atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Next to illegal immigration, feminism is the second-greatest seminal threat to American Independence.
My mentor Phyllis Schlafly often wrote about the Supremacists – of which feminists are the most entrenched and dangerous of all anti-American movements.   Feminism is the hub of Communism, Marxism, socialism, fascism, the Democrat Party, and the Communist Party in the United States.
The Communist Party USA is illegal under federal law but its platform operates openly under Democrat Party auspices.   In 2008, we elected a Communist president with fascist leanings.  Democrats seized 1/6 of the economy under the guise of National Health Care, made everyone wards of the federal government, and flattened our economy for eight long years.
Upon election, President Obama quickly gave interdisciplinary cabinet-level control of all departments to lesbians running the National Organization for Women, who dictated cabinet policy from the White House Office on Women and Girls (WOWG).  The feminist sexual revolution agenda was broadly forced upon other departments, most notably the military and education, sometimes enhanced by destructive Presidential orders and letters that are still operative today.
Fake rape statistics were used to take over college campuses.  “Star Chamber” administrative campus tribunals now apply phony definitions of sex abuse to kick men out college, while women have carte-blanche rights to slam down beer, do drugs, and sleep with anybody they want with no risk of repercussion.  “Microaggressions” established an unintelligible encyclopedia of punishable “patriarchal crimes”.
Feminists are well on the way to forcing everyone to live according to radical feminist dictaunder phony “Yes Means Yes” laws requiring men (even married men) to get permission to hold a woman’s hand (and everything beyond that) or be presumed guilty of a sexual offense. This law was sponsored by radical feminist Senator Claire McCaskill, and reflects her demand that men “shut the hell up” on a broad range of issues that are the sole domain of feminist Supremacists to manage.
Feminist harangues about sexual violence are as phony as Al Gore’s global warming agitprop.  Sexual violence has decreased 60% since 1995, with colleges being the safest place for women.  About half of rape allegations are false and many more unfounded.
When President Trump won the presidency in 2016, “nasty women” promptly declared “the future is feminist”.  That is exactly what liberals are doing right now.
I am here to warn everyone that feminists (who already broadly control levers of power in the swamp, media, education, law, and politics) are executing a coordinated takeover of the U.S. Congress, state governments, courts, and perches of economic power in business, media, and academics by hurling mostly-false sex allegations at men.
History has already proven this will win in 2018 regardless of the issues in each race.   Feminists have been perfecting their “Mother of all bombs” for over 130 years. 
The history begins in the mid-1880’s when the first feminists in the Women’s Ku Klux Klancommonly used false sex allegations against black men to drive discrimination and bloody mob lynchings (as documented in the movie Rosewood). Feminists then, as today, wanted a lot more than equality.  They got it by establishing dual standards based on extorted chivalry.
“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world” was the WKKK Supremacist motto. Divorces have thusly been won for over 100 years with Allred-style false child or adult abuse allegations hurled at men, up to 77% of which are false.
In his new book, “The Politics of Sex”, Stephen Baskerville describes how feminists are succeeding every day all over America:
In the years following Tailhook the military was besieged with accusations of the same gender crimes now familiar in civilian life: rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment. When these produced too many acquittals, the rules were changed to ensure more convictions.
This is precisely what is happening right now all over America.   Allegations take two minutes to make, are impossible to disprove in most cases, and often result in knee-jerk firing or expulsion of men.  The avalanche of accusations has crushed sanity and made case-by-case analysis impossible in the media.
Harvey Weinstein went way overboard and was quickly declared guilty.  Men who did nothing worth sneezing at often end up fired or pariahed because they are the same sex as Harvey Weinstein.  The feminist meat grinder wins because spitting out volumes of false allegations costs nearly nothing, while it is very expensive and perhaps impossible to prove innocence.
Feminists never mention how Elizabeth Taylor and other screen sirens wore out their casting couches.  They never talk about the epidemic of female teachers sexually abusing children in our public schools.
The vast majority of men destroyed by feminists did nothing that women were not happily doing alongside them at parties, in dressing rooms, offices, and everyplace else imaginable.  The results are vastly unequal: men get sacked while women get payoffs, a book deal, and pandering appearances on talk television.
Sex crimes are horrid life-destructive crimes – and so are false sex crime allegations.  Both should be punished with equal vigor.  But they are not.  Amidst the howling roar of the feminist rape riot, nobody dares mention serious collateral damage done to innocent men.    Everyone runs, ducks, capitulates, or hides – which is exactly what feminists want them to do.
This is big business.  Women were paid up to $750,000 to hurl accusations at President Trump.   Dark-money from George Soros and other political sources expose the real purpose of this Bolshevik revolution.
The list of men being destroyed is exploding faster than we can tally it.  Men fired on allegation alone are nearly always replaced by women.   Jeff Bezos is considering only women to replace the head of Amazon Studios.  Feminists are such a sexist threat that even liberal gay men are abandoning the feminist movement.
Time magazine exulted the Supremacist coup with a callous proclamation:
“These now disgraced men are not being replaced by women as an act of revenge, but because the women are the best candidates for the job. It’s promotion of the fittest. It’s evolution.
This is a massive sexist violation of employment laws and mass persecution like never before witnessed in American history.
Feminists are quickly erecting city “takeover” Commissions similar to the “Yes Means Yes” campus tribunals.  Hollywood’s Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality — headed by Anita Hill — says it all.  Women can get anything they want by dressing like Phyllis Schlafly and hollering “abuse”.  Sex abuse and female entitlement were muttered in the same breath when Oprah hinted an angry run for the presidency in 2020.
Liberals are experts at emotionally leveraging conservative principles against us.  Feminists hijacked the election from Judge Roy Moore.   Phony allegations of pedophilia froze conservative voters into staying home on election day because rational thinking dies when conservatives hear the serotonin-inhibiting words “sexual abuse”.  Spineless snowflakes running the RNC quickly abandoned Moore.  The Democrat turnout was 95% of 2016, but the Republican turnout a dismal 50%.
The sacking of Judge Roy Moore guarantees that political races in 2018 and beyond will be panopticons of sex allegations against men.
Politics has become so risky that many good conservative men are quitting politics.  A record number of 31 Republican Congresspeople – 26 of them men – will not seek re-election in 2018. Most of them cite family reasons.  Who dares risk the job, home, and family before a firing squad of feminists?
Democrats need flip only 23 seats in the House and one in the Senate to control Congress.   The wildly effective recent conquests of media and politics indicate this will be the Democrat’s nuclear weapon this fall and in 2020.
I suggest it is time for Rush Limbaugh to update his original definition of feminism: “Feminism Was Established So As To Allow Unattractive Women Easier Access To The Mainstream Of Pop Culture”.  It should be “Feminism was invented to empower Marxist sacrifice of nations before a pink pedestal of predatory chivalry”.

The hijrah continues to be escorted into Europe by the United
Nations, which has signaled to Europe that whatever the price-tag,
whatever the cost — including mass rapes, violent no-go zones, jihad
attacks and other abuses — European citizens must accommodate Muslim
migrants and expect more to flow in.

United Nations refugee chief Filippo Grandi has said that
EU nations must prepare their asylum reception systems to cope with
bigger migrant inflows.

The Visegrad group (Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia) —
especially Hungary and Poland — has resisted the hijrah, and have
managed to “cut illegal immigration by 99 percent.” For this, the UN
singled it out as being cruel in rejecting innocent people who were
“fleeing war and persecution.” Yet that is questionable, and all the
while Christians continue to be wiped out in the Middle East with nary a
whisper from the UN.

“UN Refugee Chief Says Europe Must Prepare Systems to Cope with Bigger Migrant Flows”, by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, January 25, 2018:

United Nations refugee chief Filippo Grandi has said that
EU nations must prepare their asylum reception systems to cope with
bigger migrant inflows.

Speaking to Refugees Deeply in Davos, the UN High Commissioner for
Refugees (UNHCR) said the “big failure” in Europe’s response to the
migrant crisis in 2015 and 2016 was that governments visibly struggled
to house, feed, and clothe the massive influx of third world migrants
who marched on the continent after German Chancellor Angela Merkel
opened the border.

“We need to work more with Europe, and other countries that receive
refugees, to make reception systems more effective for larger numbers
than before,” he said, lamenting that migrant reception systems in the
bloc had “cracked under the pressure” of huge inflows……

The Italian diplomat is not a fan of walls, as Breitbart London noted
in September when Grandi blasted Hungary’s border fences for doing
their job.

On a visit to the Visegrád nation’s border, where walls have cut
illegal immigration by 99 per cent, the UNHCR boss complained: “When I
was standing at the border fence today, I felt the entire system is
designed to keep people, many of whom are fleeing war and persecution,
out of the country.”

In the interview, which was published on Wednesday, Grandi also told
Refugees Deeply co-founder and executive editor Lara Setrakian that
Europe should speed up granting passports to refugees, claiming that the
privileges of citizenship aid migrants’ integration.

For “wealthy states, especially European states”, resettling large
numbers of refugees on a scale like that seen at the height of the
migrant crisis is perfectly doable, he insisted.

“Of course it requires an effort. In the case of Europe, it also
requires regional cooperation, something that is politically difficult,”
the Milanese figure said, remarking that “European Commission leaders
in Brussels” appear to be working along lines which would further UNHCR

Breitbart London reported Thursday on EU migration commissioner
Dimitris Avramopoulos’s announcement that it would be “unacceptable” for
any European nation to refuse the resettlement of third world asylum
seekers, declaring that mass migration from Africa and the Middle East
is part of the “principles and values” on which the bloc was built.

his trademark nationalism, which reveals the inherent weakness of
globalism: it only takes one man to act as a lion to defeat the sheep of
a system designed by the Rockefellers and Rothchilds.

For decades, the globalists have gained
control by selling the false idea that national identity still exists as
they forged Europe into a superstate in which every nation is reduced
to a vassal of an unelected bureaucracy.
But now, thanks to Trump, Brexit and the
ongoing migrant crisis, average Europeans are starting to question why
they’re losing their cultures and identities to the EU – and they look
at Trump as a Howard Roark-style American cowboy whose undeterred
rebellion against a legion of doom inspires their own individual
thoughts and opinions.
This leaves the globalists in the
untenable position to directly attack nationalism, but it’ll only
backfire on them; the sparks of ideas have already ignited the minds of
Europeans who’ve spent years living under decay, which they now realize
is the direct result of globalism pushed by the very leaders who are
smearing Trump.
In short, Europeans view Trump’s rebellion as much needed change.
Read this excerpt from the International Business Times:
On the eve of President Donald
Trump’s visit to Davos, Switzerland, European leaders on Wednesday came
together to warn the world about the perils of nationalism. European
Leaders warned the World Economic Forum on the dangerous implications of
slipping back to nationalism, while defending free trade, which
president Trump has opposed, and encouraged global co-operation between
This statement reeks of hypocrisy:
you can’t have independent nations without a hint of nationalism, but
the hypocrisy makes sense once you start thinking like a globalist.

For example, European globalists define “nations” as vassals of
the EU. Just look up the definition of a vassal, then compare it with
the headlines reporting how the EU is requiring migrant quotas on member

And in another example of hypocrisy,
the New York Times is now defending globalism barely a year after
claiming it was a “conspiracy theory.”
From a Times article entitled Globalism: A Far-Right Conspiracy Theory Buoyed by Trump dated Nov. 14, 2016:
Those conspiratorial beliefs were
bolstered when former President George Bush celebrated the end of the
Cold War in a 1991 speech by saying it was the dawn of a “new world
order.” His use of the phrase was taken as proof by many that a
globalist conspiracy really was afoot.
“It was very easy for them,
especially because he was the one who said it, to take that ball and run
with it,” Mr. Pitcavage said. “From that point on, the phrase became
the shorthand for that kind of globalism conspiracy theory.”
What a difference Trump’s first year
in office made. Now the New York Times now admits globalism does exist
because, like EU leaders, the mainstream media is forced to defend it.
Here’s a Nov. 22, 2018 article from the Times entitled Fox in the Globalist Henhouse? Davos Awaits Trump’s Arrival:
Mr. Trump, who is to arrive later
this week, is drawing a mix of breathless anticipation, anxiousness and
downright agitation among a crowd that has long considered him an

climate change and free trade. The cast of multinational leaders this

gathering of around 2,500 of the most influential political and economic
leaders from around the world. President Trump is expected to promote
his “America First” policy at this gathering, which could be

 LANSING, Mich. — A former gymnast who had been sexually abused by sports 
doctor Larry Nassar when she was 15 presented the gospel on Wednesday in 
delivering her victim impact statement in court.

Rachael Denhollander was the first woman to speak out in 2016 after
USA Gymnastics was accused of failing to properly handle sexual assault
accusations lodged by young gymnasts, and she was also one of the last
to have a say this week as Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in

“Larry, you have become a man ruled by selfish, perverted desires. A
man defined by his daily choices over, and over again, to feed that
selfishness and perversion,” she said as she addressed Nassar during her
36-minute statement. “You chose to pursue your wicked desires, no
matter what it cost others. The opposite of what you have done,
therefore, is choosing to love sacrificially, no matter what it costs

Denhollander noted that she had observed Nassar previously bring his
Bible to court and that he had said that he had prayed for forgiveness.

“If you have read the Bible you carry, you know that the definition
of sacrificial love portrayed in it is of God Himself loving so
sacrificially that He gave up everything to pay the penalty for sin He
did not commit. By His grace, I too, choose to love—no matter what it
costs,” she said.

The 32-year-old, who is now married and works as an attorney, then warned Nassar that he must repent of his evil deeds.

“You spoke of praying for forgiveness, but Larry, if you have read
the Bible you carry, then you know that forgiveness does not come by
doing good things, as if good deeds can wipe out the incredible evil you
have committed,” Denhollander outlined. “It comes from repentance,
which requires facing and acknowledging the truth about what you have
done, in all its utter depravity and horror. Without mitigation. Without
excuse. Without pretending you can cover it with good things.”

“The Bible you carry says it is better for a millstone to be tied
around your neck and you thrown into a lake than for you to make even
one child stumble. And Larry, you have wounded hundreds of children,”
she continued. “The Bible you carry speaks of a final judgment where all
of God’s wrath, in all its eternal terror, is poured out on men like
you. Should you ever reach the point of truly facing what you have done,
the weight of guilt in the face of the horrific evil you committed,
will be crushing.”

After explaining the consequences of sin, Denhollander presented
the grace of the Lord as Christ took the place of undeserving sinners.

“And that is what makes the gospel of Christ so sweet. Because it
gives hope and grace where none should be found,” she outlined. “And I
pray you experience the soul-crushing weight of guilt someday, so that
it can be followed by true repentance and forgiveness from God.”

According to reports, Nassar dabbed at his eyes during some of the
victim impact statements that were delivered over the seven-day hearing,
and other times he sat emotionless. Over 150 women who state that they
were abused by Nassar while coming to him for treatment spoke during the
sentencing hearing.

 US School Forces Kids To Convert To Islam, Mama Bears Have ...

We have seen this all over the country, and in every case, the school
officials insist that the school is simply teaching the tenets of
Islam, not proselytizing for them. But it is noteworthy that public
schools never seem to teach, say, that “Jesus is the Son of God and
Savior of the world” without qualification. Whenever public schools
teach about Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., they are
careful not to teach what adherents believe as established fact. But
when it comes to Islam, its tenets are being taught as established fact

investigation of this phenomenon, but of course, there probably will not

“Mom Says NJ School Assignment Recruited for Islam,” by Nick Rummell, Courthouse News Service, January 24, 2018:

NEWARK, N.J. (CN) – A New Jersey middle school that
caught flak last year for requiring students to watch videos on Islam
was hit Tuesday with a federal complaint.

Represented by the Thomas More Law Center, parent Libby Hilsenrath
says a teacher assigned her 12-year-old’s seventh-grade class at Chatham
Middle School to watch two videos at home with proselytizing messages.

The first video,
“Intro to Islam,” is set to a musical version of a poem that describes
“Christians and Jews as ‘infidels’ and prais[es] Muhammad in gruesome
detail for slaughtering them,” according to the complaint.

Calling it a “conversion video,” Hilsenrath says the 5-minute
assignment was “replete with biased, chastising statements encouraging
the students … to follow the Quran and become Muslim.”

“Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is the last & final Messenger of God,” one such unqualified message in the video states.

In addition to presenting the religious teachings of Islam as facts,
Hilsenrath says the video includes a link where students can download
“Qaseedah Burdah,” the song with references to killing infidels.

Hilsenrath notes that the second video,
an explanation of the five pillars of Islam, is a cartoon where a
Muslim child explains the tenants of Islam to his non-Muslim friend,
then ends with both boys walking off to “learn how to pray.”

“Due to the fact that these doctrinal messages calling for conversion
to Islam were included in video format with vivid images and text, they
possess greater communicative impact and are more likely to be accepted
by the students viewing them than information that is spoken in a
classroom or even written in a book,” the complaint states.
A worksheet component of the assignment meanwhile focused on the
shahada, what Hilsenrath calls “the Islamic conversion creed and
“Clearly, seventh graders were given a sugarcoated, false depiction
of Islam,” the Thomas More Law Center said in a statement. “They were
not informed of the kidnappings, beheadings, slave-trading, massacres,
and persecution of non-Muslims, nor of the repression of women — all
done in the name of Islam.”
Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the law center,
issued a statement as well. “After watching this video, I can’t imagine
any reasonable person saying this is not Islamic indoctrination,” he
Questioning why the curriculum for the Middle East and North Africa
unit left out other religions, the complaint notes that “there are
approximately 16 million Christians in the Middle East and approximately
6.4 million Jews living in the Middle East.”
Likewise the religious beliefs of Christianity are not covered in the
unit on Latin America, a region that is 88 percent Christian, and
Eastern religions are not covered in the unit on Southeast Asia,
according to the complaint.
“Defendants assailed the First Amendment … by forcing children to
endure the promotion of Islam in their public schools, including an
explicit and direct call to the children for conversion to the religion
of Islam,” the complaint states.
Hilsenrath says she and another parent emailed their concerns to school officials in early 2017. Fox News invited them to appear
on Tucker Carlson’s show that February. The pair joined many other
parents at a packed March 2017 open meeting of the Chatham school board.
School officials defended the curriculum at the meeting, saying it
met the state requirements and that it was untrue that Islam was the
only religion taught to seventh graders.
But Hilsenrath says the school’s conduct betrays hostility toward
Christians. When confronted about the curriculum in January 2017,
according to the complaint, Chatham’s social studies department chair
sent an email where he linked to what he called a “priceless” clip
from TV’s “The West Wing.” In the scene, the president character mocks a
fundamentalist Christian about various tenants of the Old Testament,
such as its endorsement of slavery….

Who decides what constitutes “hate speech” and what doesn’t? That is
the all-important question that Leftists who call for “hate speech” to
be restricted in various ways consistently ignore. The grim reality is
that those in power can label any opinion they dislike as “hate speech,”
and proscribe it accordingly. That is the pathway to an unbridled
tyranny. That’s why the freedom of speech is absolutely essential for a
free society. But YouTube and its cohorts are rushing to destroy it by
means of Orwellian initiatives of this kind.

“YouTube is investing $5 million in creators who ‘counter hate and promote tolerance,’” by Lizzie Plaugic, The Verge, January 24, 2018 (thanks to David):

YouTube announced today
that it plans to invest $5 million in its Creators for Change program,
in an effort to help members “counter hate and promote tolerance.”
Creators for Change, which launched in 2016, is a collective of 39
YouTubers who use the platform to discuss and promote important issues
around the world.

The members of Creators for Change work on “impact projects
to raise awareness about things like police brutality, bullying,
xenophobia, and racism.
The $5 million investment will come in the form
of “production and marketing support,” including several production
grants, according to YouTube. The company also says it hopes to bring
more creators into Creators for Change in 2018.
It will go toward “production and marketing support”
The fund is a small amount for a company that has an estimated value of $75 billion, but it’s an indication that YouTube wants to put more effort into ensuring its creators use their platforms for good. As Polygon points out, the investment comes just a few months after some members of Creators for Change said it was “disheartening” to see YouTube’s more controversial streamers earning huge amounts of money and views.
“It’s our duty to not promote just the negative, but the positive,” YouTuber Sam Saffold told Polygon in September. “There are so many positive YouTubers who don’t get the attention they deserve.”
YouTube has also been criticized for videos that include hate speech and terrorist propaganda. This summer, the European Union approved a set of proposals that would make companies like YouTube responsible for blocking the hate speech published on their platforms….

 Sean Hannity: FBI’s Peter Strzok, Mistress 
Lisa Page at ‘Nexus of Everything’
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

The 50,000 text messages between two lead FBI investigators who
worked on the Clinton e-mail case are filled with damning revelations.
Among those is a thread that shows that the two agents — Peter Stzrok
and his mistress, Lisa Page — knew ahead of time (and while the
“investigation” was still ongoing) that then-FBI Director Comey was
planning to give Clinton a pass.

The text messages at issue are dated July 1, 2016, and address the
“timing” of the infamous tarmac meeting between former President Bill
Clinton and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch. That meeting took place
on June 27, 2016 and has been seen as evidence of the Obama FBI and
Department of Justice protecting Hillary Clinton from anything
resembling a real investigation.

During his testimony before Congress on June 8, 2017, Comey said that
the Clinton/Lynch tarmac meeting and Lynch’s instructions to refer to
the Clinton probe as a “matter” and not an “investigation” influenced
his decision not to recommend indIctment.

Since both Strzok and Page were involved in the “investigation” into
Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of an unsecured, unauthorized, private
e-mail server and account to send and receive at least 2,079
classified e-mails during her tenure as secretary of state, their text
messages on the subject should carry more than a little weight —
especially since these text messages were never intended to see the
light of day.
The text messages between the two agents appear to indicate that — on
July 1, 2016, four days after the meeting and four days before Comey’s
recommendation against an indictment in the “matter” — they both already
knew what the outcome would be. Referring to the tarmac meeting, Stzrok
wrote, “Timing looks like hell.” Page replied, “Yeah, that is awful
timing,” adding, “It’s a real profile in couragw [sic], since she
[Lynch] knows no charges will be brought.”

Given all of the evidence of both Clinton’s crimes and the
skulduggery going on between the FBI and Department of Justice during
the dog-and-pony show that was passed off to the American people as an
investigation, it is apparent that there was a decision — made before
all the facts were known and even before many key witnesses (including
Clinton herself) were interviewed — to clear Clinton of any wrongdoing.
As this writer said in an article about the order from Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Department of Justice to investigate the FBI, the word for that is not “investigation,” it is “cover-up.”
These text messages add another layer to the already growing body of
evidence that what Lynch called a “matter” and the FBI originally called
an “investigation” was little more than a fix for Clinton. There will
likely be more evidence of that as further revelation come to light.


 DOJ FBI Corruption Obama Hillary Clinton
 High-ranking Obama Administration hold-overs of the Deep State have surreptitiously planned to overthrow Donald Trump.
#ReleasetheMemo – Why Isn’t Mainstream Media Covering This Matter?
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

USA – With all the media buzz about the Government
shutdown, the more pressing matter, by far, is this: Conspiratorial DOJ
and FBI Officials and, perhaps, other high-ranking Obama Administration
hold-overs of the Deep State have surreptitiously planned to overthrow
Donald Trump. The odd thing is that this silent coup is still unfolding.
It is unfolding, like a seemingly radiant—at least as presented to the
public by Congressional Democrats—but clearly poisonous and deadly
flower—and all of it with the passive, placid consent and connivance of
mainstream media news organizations and outlets.
The House
Intelligence Committee Memo, would, as House Intelligence Committee
Republicans make plain, explain clearly the reprehensible, insidious
conspiracy afoot, within this Country, to oust Donald Trump from Office.
begin with this: the Fusion GPS Dossier, a work of fiction, concocted
by ex-British spy, Christopher Steele, comprising uncorroborated,
garbage meant to compromise Donald Trump—commissioned and paid for by
Hillary Clinton and the DNC, which she controls, and which she had hoped
would assure her victory in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, and
which now serves as the primary force behind Special Counsel Robert
Mueller’s investigation of collusion between Trump Campaign Officials
and the Russian Government.
The Fusion GPS Dossier serves as the
predicate basis for Special Counsel, Robert Mueller’s investigation of
Donald Trump and his Campaign Officials. This Special Counsel, Robert
Mueller, along with other Deep State Conspirators—whose names
undoubtedly appear in the House Intelligence Committee Memo—seek,
together, to take down Donald Trump. The Fusion GPS Dossier also serves a
complementary purpose for these Conspirators. It serves, at one and the
same time to draw attention away from Hillary Clinton and other likely
criminals who worked for and who would have had jobs in Clinton’s
Administration had she prevailed in the 2016 election. Now that she has
lost the election, she remains vulnerable to a new investigation of her
many criminal actions when she served as Secretary of State in the Obama
Obviously, Hillary Clinton, and the toadies and
hangers-on who served her, along with mainstream news media
organizations and Congressional Democrats—all of them—are furious that
Hillary Clinton lost the election. What does this mean for the Country?
Well, apart from the shattering of Clinton’s personal delusions of
grandeur, we see, thankfully, an abrupt end to President Barack Obama’s
domestic and foreign policy agenda. Hillary Clinton, as with Barack
Obama before her, would have taken her cues from the secretive,
ruthless, powerful, trans-nationalist, internationalist, globalist
“elite” who seek to dismantle this Nation’s Constitution, and who intend
to make the U.S. a vassal of a new world order, which the EU gives the
American public some intimation of.
date, after several months of “investigation” of collusion between
Trump Campaign Officials and the Russian Government, Special Counsel,
Robert Mueller, has come up with nothing, because there is nothing.
Congressional Democrats, though, want the investigation to continue. In
an obvious and blatant attempt to give the Mueller investigation an aura
of respectability and to suggest that the Mueller probe constitutes
something more than a rip-off to the American taxpayer, Senator Dianne
Feinstein (D-California), “released,” ostensibly on her own, according
to the liberal news media website, Politico, “the transcript of
congressional investigators’ interview in August 2017 with Fusion GPS
co-founder Glenn Simpson, whose firm was behind the controversial
dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and Russians.”
provides a link to the transcript. On perusal the transcript is nothing
more than a compilation of bald, hearsay assertions that would not be
admissible in a Court of law.
It is time to end the illegal farce
of the Mueller investigation. Further, the American public should demand
a renewed—and this time, true and proper—investigation of Hillary
Clinton and of those toadies who have aided and abetted her, along with
an investigation of the conspirators who orchestrated and who are even
now systematically machinating behind the scenes, blatantly, smugly,
continuing to carry out their detailed, despicable, diabolical operation
to destroy the Trump Presidency and to undermine the will of the people
of this Country.
In a renewed investigation of Hillary Clinton
and her many henchmen, along with an investigation of those responsible
for attempting to undermine the Trump Presidency, the Arbalest Quarrel
demands that Attorney General Jeff Sessions appoint a new cadre of FBI
agents and officials, and a new cadre of DOJ attorneys and
officials—uncorrupted Americans, beyond reproach, unconnected with and
untainted with the conspiracy to protect Hillary Clinton and unconnected
with the conspiracy to destroy the U.S. President Donald Trump—to
conduct these investigations.
One would think that The
mainstream Press would be all over this. It isn’t. The left-wing
mainstream New York Times, whose motto is “all the news that’s fit to
print,” reports nothing. Of course, The New York Times, debasing the
sacred protection afforded the Press, under the First Amendment to the
U.S. Constitution allows itself to be used as a tool of—or, more likely,
is itself complicit in—the coup attempt to oust a popularly elected
U.S. President. So, the NY Times reports nothing.
veritable news blackout of critical events—is even more damaging to the
maintenance of a free Republic than news distortion—i.e., reporting
“fake” news, consisting of disinformation or misinformation, meant to
deceive the public and to turn public attention toward trivial or
irrelevant matters. Campaigns of deliberate deception, carried out by
the Press through non-information, misinformation, and disinformation
destroy a news organization’s credibility. To be sure, an astute reader
may glean nuggets of truth even from misinformation or disinformation.
But a total news blackout–a complete censoring of news–is a different
sort of beast, as there is nothing to glean from a void in the news.
would expect news blackouts in Countries ruled by totalitarian regimes,
not in Democratic Republics. News blackouts occurring in a Free
Republic, such as the U.S., are heinous. The mainstream news media hides
behind the First Amendment, claiming to work on behalf of the American
people. Not so! They abet conspirators who seek to overthrow a popularly
elected leader of our Nation.
This is not the first time that a
mainstream news organization, namely and specifically, The New York
Times, hides news that is definitely fit to print. Indeed, it is the
Times’ new policy, now etched in stone, to keep their news reporters on a
tight leash. The Arbalest Quarrel has recently written about the Times’
new gag order on its own reporters. See our article, titled, The
Mainstream Media New York Times Newspaper’s New “Gag Order” Policy
Prevents Its Employees From Exercising Their Right Of Free Speech Under
The First Amendment To The U.S. Constitution.
We guess that no
other mainstream newspaper has reported on this apparent diabolical coup
attempt—an attempted coup d’état of the Executive Branch of Government
that is still unfolding, a matter more dangerous than the Watergate
exposé that the Washington Post had written extensively on. Where is the
Washington Post now? We see just a smattering of this frightening and
provocative news in that news publication. Apparently, neither the
Washington Post nor The New York Times, and likely no other mainstream
media newspaper considers the overthrow of a legitimate U.S.
President—who wishes only to do his job to faithfully execute the laws
of this Country in accordance with his Oath of Office and who seeks to
strengthen the Bill of Rights—to amount to news that most mainstream
media news organizations like The New York Times considers the kind of
news that’s fit to bring to the attention of the American citizen.
conservative leaning Wall Street Journal, too, has nothing to say about
the House Intelligence Committee Memo that Republican Congressmen, Matt
Gaetz and Jim Jordan first brought to the attention of the American
public in the last week’s Hannity broadcast. Gatekeepers of information
obviously exist on both the “right” and “left” of the political
spectrum. The American public is caught in the middle, deceived from
this bastion of Democracy—this Fourth Estate—that claims to be the
guardian of American Democracy. Instead, the Press, too, betrays the
American people.
Why is that? Instead of discussing and
investigating a despicable coup attempt of the Executive Branch of
Government, these mainstream news media organizations dwell on the
illicit Obama created programs, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood
Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans)—illegal
schemes hatched by the Obama Administration to place this Nation in the
very situation it faces today: what to do with 180,000 illegal aliens,
along with their parents; and, for that matter, what to do with millions
of other illegal aliens who do not belong here; never should have been
here; should have been prevented from entering here; should have been
removed from our Country years ago; and, that removal having been
suspended, should certainly be removed from our Nation now as their very
existence in this Country amounts to a slap-in-the-face of our
naturalization laws and threatens the stability of the social,
political, economic, legal and cultural fabric of this Nation.
DOJ and FBI conspirators succeed in this horrific coup attempt to upend
the Trump Presidency, we will see further erosion of First Amendment
free speech rights and the undermining of the Second Amendment. The
Mueller investigation is, itself, in its very existence, an illegal and
reprehensible attack on the unreasonable searches and seizures clause of

Top abortion advocate Cecile Richards (shown) plans to step down as
the head of Planned Parenthood after 12 years at the helm of the
nation’s leading abortion provider, reported the Washington Post January 24.

While neither Richards nor Planned Parenthood has confirmed the news,
a spokesperson for the abortion giant said that Richards planned to “to
discuss 2018 and the next steps for Planned Parenthood’s future at the
upcoming board meeting.”

The Post reported that rumors of Richards’ retirement from
the “non-profit” have been circulating through the liberal political
world for several months, and according to “people with knowledge of the
decision, there was talk before the 2016 election that if Hillary
Clinton won the presidency, Richards was ready to move on.”

During Richard’s tenure Planned Parenthood proudly ended the lives of
over 300,000 pre-born babies every year — 3.5 million abortions in all.
During that same time frame Planned Parenthood raked in billions of
dollars in tax revenues.
The abortion giant’s own annual report for 2016-17 shows that during
that time it was responsible for 321,384 abortions while reaping $543.7
million in government subsidies — nearly 40 percent of the
organization’s $1.46 billion budget.
Additionally, during that reporting period abortions made up 96
percent of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal
services, miscarriage care, and adoption referrals accounted for only
four percent. In fact, for every adoption referral Planned Parenthood
made during 2016, it performed more than 82 abortions.
Pro-life leader Troy Newman suggested that Richards departure may
have been expedited by President Trump’s aggressive stand against
abortion compared to that of Obama, along with an ongoing investigation
by the Department of Justice into Planned Parenthood practices.
“Planned Parenthood is under investigation by the Department of
Justice for illegally trafficking in aborted baby remains and other
crimes,” noted Newman, who heads the group Operation Rescue. “Could it
be that Richards is getting out while she can, before indictments are
handed down?”
David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress, the organizations
whose investigation uncovered Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of baby
body tissue for sale, recalled that during her tenure “Cecile Richards
was the most devoted practitioner of Planned Parenthood’s ‘out of sight,
out of mind’ mantra to cover up their barbaric abortion business from
the public. As Planned Parenthood faces federal criminal investigation
from the FBI and DOJ for selling aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers, and
brains, Richards’ departure shows that the old strategy is no longer
working — the secret is out that Planned Parenthood is a
taxpayer-sponsored crime syndicate of industrial-scale child killing,
and even Cecile Richards can no longer put a friendly spin on it.”
With the nation having a pro-life president and increasing numbers of
states passing legislation designed to protect the unborn and their
mothers, “Planned Parenthood is swimming against the tide of history,”
said Marjorie Dannenfelser of the pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony
List. “Its public favor is on the wane as pro-life momentum is on the
rise. Her successor is left with an impossible job: sell a
scandal-laden, failing organization that … provides pregnant women
with prenatal care only 2.3 percent of the time.”
Putting a spiritual spin on Richards’ impending departure from the
abortion giant, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life commented, “I
always say a prayer when someone like Cecile Richards has a change in
her job, because it can be an opportunity for her to evaluate more
clearly what she has been doing and why.” Pavone added, however, that
the larger issue “is not the personnel who lead Planned Parenthood, but
the corrupt and criminal enterprise that the organization itself is.
Whoever serves it, in any capacity, is wounded and distorted in
conscience. The whole enterprise needs to be closed.”

 Cecile Richards Announces Resignation From Planned Parenthood, But Says She’s 
‘Proud’ of Her Work 
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 WASHINGTON — Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards announced on 
Friday that she is resigning from her position with the abortion and 
contraception giant, but in no way recanted her work with the organization.

Rather, Richards praised Planned Parenthood and spoke glowingly
about the 12 years that she had spent leading the sexually-centered

“Twelve years ago, I joined Planned Parenthood to fight for a world
where every woman can live her best life, and together, we’ve built a
movement to protect reproductive health,” she said in a video statement.
“And I could not be prouder.”

“From my first moment at Planned Parenthood, I have been in awe of
our brave doctors, clinicians, staff and volunteers who provide care to
one in five American women,” Richards said. “And to all of you who count
on Planned Parenthood, know that this organization will be here for
you, no matter where you live, how much money you make, who you love or
where you come from.”

She claimed that Planned Parenthood has been an integral part of the
country and has helped to save lives as rates for unintended pregnancy
and abortion have fallen in recent years.

“Planned Parenthood has been a part of the fabric of this country for
100 years, and thanks to you, it will be here for 100 more,” Richards
remarked. “… Planned Parenthood has helped tens of millions take control
of their health and their futures providing birth control, pap smears,
breast exams, STI testing and treatment, and safe and legal abortion.”

“Today, America is at a 30-year low for unintended pregnancies, and
historic lows for abortion and teen pregnancy. This is one of the most
important public health success stories in America’s history, and it
would not have been possible without the life-changing and life-saving
work of Planned Parenthood,” she asserted.

Richards stated that it was an “honor” to be both a patient and
president of Planned Parenthood, and advised that she will be a
“lifelong supporter and champion” of the organization’s purposes.

She has not yet advised what her plans are going forward, or why she
decided to leave, other than remarking in an email, “[T]he time has come
for me to move on to my next chapter—and for new voices to take the
lead at Planned Parenthood.”

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP), which has been one of the most
prominent opponents of Planned Parenthood—and exposed the
organization’s practice of transferring the body parts of aborted babies
to for-profit biomedical companies—opined that Richards’ announcement
could signal problems within the organization.

“After CMP’s revealing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood’s top
abortion doctors and the damning findings of multiple Congressional
probes, Richards’ departure shows that the old strategy is no longer
working as Planned Parenthood faces federal criminal investigation for
selling aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains,” said director
David Daleiden. “Planned Parenthood’s new leadership should commit to
full transparency with the Department of Justice and with the public,
and to ending this taxpayer-funded criminal abortion enterprise once and
for all.”

As previously reported,
according to its annual report, Planned Parenthood performed 321,384
abortions during the 2016-2017 fiscal year. Government funding was the
largest source of revenue for the organization, as it received over $543
million in the year alone, down slightly from $554 million in
2015-2016. $532 million came from private contributions and grants. With
all the sources of income combined, Planned Parenthood generated over
$1.45 billion in revenue throughout the fiscal year.

Sanger’s newsletter “The Woman Rebel.”And
despite its expenditures, which included $75 million to “strengthen and
secure Planned Parenthood,” $47 million for sexual education, and $40
million on public policy, the abortion giant still garnered a $98.5
million dollar profit, labeled as “excess of revenue,” up from $77
million the year prior and $58 million in 2014.

As previously reported, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger,
who was a staunch advocate of eugenics, made a correlation between birth
control and the purification of the races, referring to those with
disabilities as being “morons,” “idiots” and “imbeciles.”

“Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law,
is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding
out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who
will become defectives,” she wrote in “Woman and the New Race.” “If we
are to make racial progress, this development of womanhood must precede
motherhood in every individual woman.”

“The emergency problem of segregation and sterilization must be faced
immediately,” Sanger also contended in her publication “The Pivot of
Civilization.” “Every feeble-minded girl or woman of the hereditary
type, especially of the moron class, should be segregated during the
reproductive period. Otherwise, she is almost certain to bear imbecile
children, who in turn are just as certain to breed other defectives.”


 WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 6: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) speaks at a news conference about President Donald Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program at the U.S. Capitol September 6, 2017 in Washington, DC. Democrats called for action on young undocumented immigrants that came to the U.S. as children who now could face deportation if Congress does not act. (Photo by Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images)
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) sent a message to
the White House through an aide on January 22, informing President Trump
that he was retracting the offer he made on January 19 to approve more
than $1.6 billion for construction of a wall along the southern border
with Mexico. 

Schumer “took it off,” Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the assistant
Democratic leader said on January 23. “He called the White House
yesterday and said it’s over.”

The offer was made during negotiations to end a government shutdown
by approving a temporary funding measure through February 8. Senators
voted 81-18 on January 22 to pass the temporary funding measure in
exchange for assurances from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
(R-Ky.) to work on a deal to grant legal status to roughly 700,000
youthful aliens protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood
Arrivals (DACA) program.

“The wall offer is off the table,” Schumer told reporters on January 23. “That was part of a package” that’s now defunct.

“It was the first thing the president and I talked about. The thought
was that we could come to an agreement that afternoon [of the 19th],
the president would announce his support, and the Senate and the House
would get it done and it would be on the president’s desk,” Schumer
continued. “He didn’t do that. So we’re going to have to start on a new
basis and so the wall offer is off the table.”

Later that day, Trump responded by tweeting: “Cryin’ Chuck
Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that
if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and
security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!”

Trump also tweeted that day: “Nobody knows for sure that the
Republicans & Democrats will be able to reach a deal on DACA by
February 8, but everyone will be trying….with a big additional focus
put on Military Strength and Border Security. The Dems have just learned
that a Shutdown is not the answer!”

USA Today reported that the White House provided a different
account of the January 19 meeting, stating that Schumer offered
legislative approval for the wall, but not actual funding.

Hogan Gidley, a White House spokesman, said on January 23 that the
Schumer offer “never existed.” “You can’t rescind money you never really
offered in the first place,” Gidley said on Fox News.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) disputed Schumer’s recollection of the
meeting wherein the border wall offer was discussed. “They claim that
some crazy deal was made,” Cotton said of Democrats. “And then when we
say no deal was made, they accuse Republicans and the president of

After the talks between the president and the Senate minority leader
broke down, the Senate rejected a short-term spending bill, creating a
partial government shutdown. Senate Democrats voted against the measure
because it did not include protections for the “Dreamers,” young people
brought into the country by illegal-alien parents, who now have
temporary legal status under the Obama-era DACA program.

A report from NPR noted that last week, White House Chief of Staff
John Kelly told a caucus of Hispanic lawmakers that he had persuaded the
president that his long-promised border wall was unnecessary. As a
candidate, Kelly said, Trump was not “fully informed” of the border
situation when he pledged to build the wall and since then, the
president’s views on the subject had “evolved.”

The chief of staff reiterated those same points during an interview on Fox News, NPR reported.

With Republicans holding a slim majority in the Senate (51 out of 100
senators), one may wonder why all of these extensive negotiations are
necessary in order to approve a budget. It is true that not every
Republican was on board with the recent budget deal. In a recent
article, we quoted Senator Rand Paul’s explanation for why he could not
vote for the continuing resolution: “I’m just not voting to exceed the
spending caps, and I’m not voting for $700 billion deficits annually.”
However, even if the budget bill could have been improved to the point
where Paul and two other Republicans who were opposed to it could have
voted for it, Democrats still would have been able to sustain a
filibuster to stop it.

Under current Senate rules, a majority of 51 senators is not enough
to pass legislation that the minority party wants to filibuster. It is
for this reason that journalist Art Harman contributed an opinion
article to The Hill on January 24 in which he raised the following points:

Why on earth is the Senate minority
leader in the loop at all in a Republican Senate, much less effectively
sitting in the driver’s seat? It’s because of the charred remnants of
the old Senate tradition, still called the “filibuster,” long after the
requirement to demonstrate rhetorical stamina was eliminated.
Until the rules were changed in 1970, use
of the filibuster was incredibly rare, but today, every bill is
effectively held hostage to a 60-vote majority found nowhere in the
Constitution. The effect has been to neuter the Senate and thereby the
House. To force Republicans to write bills for Senator Schumer’s
approval rather than for Americans who want to secure our border, restore our nation’s defense, bring home our jobs and repeal and replace ObamaCare.

After providing several examples of how the filibuster has obstructed
the Trump administration’s efforts to accomplish its objectives,
including eliminating ObamaCare and obtaining Senate confirmation for
some of Trump’s appointees, Harman observed:

There’s lots of talk about a return to
regular order and passing real budgets, but as long as the legislative
filibuster survives, there is little chance we will ever see anything
but perpetual continuing resolutions.

Harman noted that had not the Senate eliminated the filibuster for
votes on Supreme Court nominees, Neil Gorsuch would never have been
confirmed as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. (Gorsuch’s
nomination received 54 votes of approval.)

Harman quoted one of Trump’s tweets expressing support for exercising
what is called “the nuclear option” (eliminating the filibuster): If
the “stalemate continues, Republicans should go 51% (Nuclear Option) and
vote on real, long-term budget, no C.R.s!”

The article concluded by admonishing members of Congress: “If the
Senate ends the legislative filibuster, Congress had better pass a
budget that includes full funding for the wall, and then pass actual
budgets by September 30 in regular order.”

DHS Assistant Secretary Says Administration Supports Allowing “Dreamers” to Stay

Trump’s Apparent Willingness to Preserve DACA Disturbs His Conservative Base


republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

As a result of the FBI failing to preserve text messages between two
senior FBI agents who appear to have worked to protect Hillary Clinton
during the “investigation” into her e-mail scandal, Attorney General
Jeff Sessions ordered the Justice Department on Monday to investigate
the FBI.

The missing texts are from a crucial five-month period covering both
the presidential transition and the beginning of the Mueller probe. Both
of the agents — Peter Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page — were
involved in both the Clinton investigation and the Mueller probe. While
those five months of text messages are “missing,” another 50,000
messages between the two have been found that show — among other things:

The couple was part of a “secret society” of highly placed people in both the FBI and the Department of Justice.

• That “secret society” is working against President Trump.

• Strzok texted Page about “an insurance policy” to get rid of Trump if he were elected.

• Both Strzok and Page were “pressured” to “wrap up” the Clinton
investigation as soon as it became apparent that Trump would secure the
GOP nomination.

• Strzok and Page appear to have known ahead of time that Comey would not recommend indictment against Clinton.

The attorney general’s order to launch this investigation comes
amidst a plethora of other similar investigations. This investigation
will focus on the FBI’s failure to preserve the text messages, which are
seen as evidence in an already ongoing investigation into the FBI’s
mishandling of the Clinton e-mail investigation. In that investigation,
there appears to have been a decision — before all the facts were known
and even before many key witnesses (including Clinton herself) were
interviewed — to clear Clinton of any wrongdoing. There is a word for
that. It is not “investigation.” It is “cover-up.”

In his statement about the investigation, Sessions said that his
office is determined to recover the missing text messages and to
“confirm with certainty” why they “are not now available.” That
statement said, in part:

We will leave no stone unturned to
confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to
be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether
the missing messages are recoverable from another source.

His statement also made it clear that those responsible will be held
accountable and that “if any wrongdoing” is discovered, “appropriate
legal disciplinary action” will be taken. From that statement:

I have spoken to the Inspector General
and a review is already underway to ascertain what occurred and to
determine if these records can be recovered in any other way. If any
wrongdoing were to be found to have caused this gap, appropriate legal
disciplinary action measures will be taken.

The New American previously reported that the text messages
that are known reveal the existence of a “secret society” that both
Strzok and Page belong to. That “secret society” is comprised of highly
placed people in both the FBI and Department of Justice and works
against President Trump. Leading Republicans are demanding action to uncover that “secret society.”

Besides the demands of leading Republicans and the new investigation ordered by Sessions, there is also the four-page
memo circulated among the House of Representatives showing systemic
abuses of of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)
Again, leading Republicans — who could not discuss the specifics of the
memo, because it is classified — have led the charge, demanding that the
memo be made public. They say that if it is made public, government
officials will “go to jail.”

All of these revelations connect — in one way or another — to the
Trump/Russia collusion narrative put forth by leading Democrats that is
responsible for the probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. That
probe — and the lies on which it stands — are coming unraveled as more
information comes to light.

Even Strzok — who held a lead role in the Mueller probe — admitted he
does not believe there is anything to the allegations of Trump/Russia
collusion. In a text message to Page in May 2017, he wrote that he was
hesitant to join the probe because “you and I both know the odds are

The outcome of these multiple investigations may help finally prove that.


 For the first time anywhere, Alex Jones lawfully presents the top secret
FISA memo that has been the subject of controversy throughout the news
media world, proving Trump was wiretapped.

  Alex Jones breaks the news that the secret FISA memo accurately
documents Former President Obama’s quarterbacking of the illegal
surveillance of Presidential Candidate Donald Trump in 2016.

  FISA Memo Could Be Made Public 
by a Congressman Simply Reading it 
on the House Floor
Judge Napolitano says it would be protected under the Constitution

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
While Americans become
increasingly frustrated over lawmakers’ failure to secure the release of
the FISA memo, Judge Andrew Napolitano says it could be made public
simply by a member of Congress reading it aloud on the House floor.
The memo purportedly contains evidence
that the Obama administration abused the Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Act to spy on the Trump campaign before the election. Some
lawmakers have said the memo reads more like something that would come
out of the KGB than America.
“Talks among congressional leaders about the process by which the memo could be publicly released are underway,” reports the Washington Examiner, and the White House has indicated that it will not stand in the way.
However, Judge Andrew Napolitano told
Fox News there was a very easy method by which the memo could be
released immediately – if a lawmaker simply reads it out on the House
Napolitano said that if the memo isn’t
released by a vote, “I’m suggesting that one of those members of
Congress….should take this to the floor of the House of Representatives
and release it there because the Constitution protects anything that is
said there.”
He added that Senator Dianne Feinstein
did something similar when she released an executive summary of the
classified torture memos back in 2014.
“The rest of Congress and the American
public is entitled to know. We put the Constitution in the hands of
people to protect it and they’ve abused that power. We need to know who
the abusers were and what they did.” said Napolitano.
Maybe Trey Gowdy and his colleagues
should stop talking about the memo in front of Fox News cameras and
start actually reading it on the House floor?
 Alex Jones Scoops Big Media, 
Releases Secret FISA Document 
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

Alex Jones and his Infowars internet/radio/TV platform appear to have scored a major coup against the Deep State
and the “mainstream” media. On Tuesday, in a sensational series of
broadcasts, which included a live interview with legendary National
Security Agency whistleblower Dr. William Binney, Jones released a secret intelligence memo
that has grabbed the attention of millions of Americans over the past
week, despite the fact that most of the Big Media have either downplayed
or completely ignored its existence. The classified intelligence memo
concerns skullduggery by President Obama’s Department of Justice and
FBI in using the infamous Fusion GPS “dossier” to justify illegal spying
on Donald Trump and members of his campaign team. “#ReleaseTheMemo” has
been a trending tweet and a rallying cry of Trump supporters over the
past several days.

On Thursday, January 18, the House Intelligence Committee voted to
make a four-page classified memo available for members of the House of
Representatives to view in a secure room in the Capitol. However,
because the memo dealt with classified information, congressmen were not
allowed to make copies or notes, or to discuss details of the memo,
except in very general terms.

As we reported
on Monday, news of the memo went viral when several Republican
congressmen went on conservative radio and television programs,
particularly  those of Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham on Fox News, on
January 18 and 19. Describing the contents of the memo as “shocking,”
“alarming,” and “criminal,” and predicting that government officials
would go to jail once this information is acted on, the GOP congressmen
said they are urging the House Intelligence Committee chairman, Rep.
Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and the Republican leadership to make the memo
available to the American prople, along with supporting documentation
from the intelligence files. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) sent a letter to
that effect to Chairman Nunes signed by 65 House members on January 19.

Over the past weekend, Chairman Nunes met with House Oversight
Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob
Goodlatte to discuss releasing  the eagerly-sought memo and the
supporting documents. Most of the anti-Trump media ignored the story or
retailed the claim of the House Intelligence Committee’s ranking
Democrat, Representative Adam Schiff of California, that the memo is
simply a partisan ploy by Republicans to draw public attention off of
the investigation of Trump-Russia collusion being carried out by Special
Counsel Robert Mueller. The most optimistic predictions seemed to point
to the process of releasing the memo as taking another week or two.
However, on Tuesday, Alex Jones aired a stunning program on Infowars
that released — or at least purported to release — the much-sought
memo. To be more specific and accurate, Jones displayed and discussed
not the four-page House Intelligence Committee memo, but a 99-page
document that is a ruling from a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance
Act) court judge. According to Dr. Binney, this court decision is the
basis of — or a main component of — the supporting intelligence
documents for the four-page memo.

How and where did Jones come by the document? After tantalizing the
audience with this exclusive bombshell document, Jones explained that he
had gotten it not through illegal or surreptitious means, but had
simply downloaded it from the website of the Office of the Director of
National Intelligence (ODNI), which is now occupied by Trump appointee
Dan Coates.
He had been alerted to its availability by Dr. Binney, who
had himself been alerted to its existence that very morning by a
“source” whom he didn’t name. It was Dr. Binney’s belief that the
99-page document had just been posted online at the ODNI website that
very day. Sure enough, the document he and Alex Jones were discussing
was indeed posted
there and available for download as a PDF. At the top and bottom of
each page is a TOP SECRET designation in large, uppercase type, although
it is crossed out with a red line, indicating it has been declassified.
The heading of the document reads: “UNITED STATES FOREIGN INTELLIEGENCE
A date stamp appears on the upper right-hand corner of the first page
that reads: “United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court
April 26, 2017 LeeAnn Flynn Hall, Clerk of the Court.”
The fact that Dr. Binney vouched for the document and was the
indirect provenance for it immediately lent it credibility. William
Binney is a world-renowned intelligence expert as well as a superlative
computer/code/technology geek. His three decades in the National
Security Agency saw him rise to the top posts of geopolitical world
Technical Director and Technical Leader for Intelligence.
According to Dr. Binney, the text of the FISA court order is a
damning admission that the Obama administration has been using the NSA
to illegally gather data — e-mail, voicemail, phone calls, Internet
traffic, medical and financial records, etc. — in a massive vacuum
operation that violates the rights of millions of Americans.
technical dragnets by the NSA collect and archive information on
virtually everybody, which corrupt officials and Deep State globalists
can, and do, use to blackmail or extort judges, politicians,
businessmen — virtually anyone — to go along with their schemes. It is a
dangerous power, like that wielded by the Soviet KGB, German Stasi, or
Communist China’s MSS (Ministry of State Security), and totally
incompatible with the U.S. Constitution and human liberty.
A number of questions about the document immediately arose. Is it
genuine? Is it the document, or one of the documents, on which the House
Intelligence Committee’s 4-page classified memo is based? How and when
did it end up on the ODNI website? Is it as damning as Dr. Binney
The fact that the document is, in fact, available on the ODNI website
and that it is deemed authentic by as esteemed an expert as Dr. Binney,
seems to be self-evident proof of authenticity.
However, in an effort
to answer these questions, The New American contacted — by both
telephone and e-mail — the Office of the Director of National Security,
as well as the chairman and members of the House Permanent Select
Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI, i.e., House Intelligence Committee).
As we go to post with this article, only the ODNI has thus far responded
to our queries. A brief e-mail from Timothy L. Barrett, chief of media
relations at ODNI, states: “Thanks for reaching out. The link you shared
below from our website is something we posted last May. As far as the
reported HPSCI 4-page memo, we refer you to HPSCI as we can’t speak on
their behalf.”
That response from ODNI raises other questions. Although it was
“posted last May,” was it posted at that time at the same publicly
accessible URL link where it is now posted? Or was it posted in May on
an internal ODNI link and only more recently moved to the public link?
Is it normal or extraordinary for ODNI to publicly post FISA court
rulings of this type? Did President Trump intervene to have this
document declassified and posted, in order to expose the Mueller
“Trump-Russia collusion” investigation as a sham? Did Trump (or someone
else in the administration or the intelligence community) get tired of
waiting for someone in the media to find it and decide to pass on word
to Dr. Binney, in hopes that it would go viral?
We don’t know the answers to those questions, at this point. However,
thanks to Dr. Binney and Alex Jones, the document has indeed gone
viral. It is now “out there” in the public square. How will this affect
the House Intelligence Committee effort to release its memo and
supporting documentation? That remains to be seen, but if a substantial
part of the documentation was the 99-page ruling produced by
Jones/Binney, and it is already declassified, then it should be much
easier for the committee to release its salvo.
What was the response of the “elite” media to the Infowars scoop?
Silence, for the most part, almost absolute silence. CNN, MSNBC, CBS,
the New York Times, etc., all continued their 24/7
all-anti-Trump/all-the-time obsession with the Mueller “investigation,”
which has turned up nothing substantive in a year of digging.
The only
mentions of the Jones/Binney FISA document discovery have been two
sarcastic attacks, one by the Soros-funded, left-wing MediaMatters, and
the other by The Weekly Standard, an anti-Trump, establishment,
neocon magazine/website. The MediaMatters piece, entitled “Alex Jones
tries and fails to pass off a publicly available document as the House
GOP’s secret Russia memo,” snidely attempts to discredit the Jones coup
by claiming the FISA ruling is old news.
“Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones purported to exclusively release a
secret memo that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has touted which supposedly
undermines the investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign
in Russia,” MediaMatters’ Timothy Johnson wrote. “The document that
Jones displayed on air during his January 23 show has actually been
publicly available on a government website since at least May 2017.” The
MediaMatters piece continues:

During his January 23 broadcast, Jones
claimed that William Binney, a former National Security Agency official,
provided him with “the actual memo they’re talking about.” Jones
printed out a copy of the memo and called for his producers to put it on
a “document cam” to show viewers, claiming that it was “tomorrow’s
news, today.”

The document shown on screen was promptly
identified as as a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court memo that
is publicly available on the website of the Office of Director of
National Intelligence.

The Weekly Standard article closely paralleled the
MediaMatters dismissal of the Jones/Binney revelations. Entitled “Fact
Check: Did Infowars Release the ‘Secret FISA Memo’?” the
subtitle purports to answer that question with, “No, it did not.” The Weekly Standard
then snarkily begins: “Caricature-extraordinaire Alex Jones claimed on
Tuesday to have in his possession THE secret FISA (Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Act) memo that congressional Republicans are calling to be
declassified.” Like MediaMatters, The Weekly Standard slams
Jones for presenting the “old” FISA document as the FISA memo. However,
neither of the snide putdowns deal with the serious issues presented by
the content of the FISA ruling itself or the conclusions that Dr. Binney
draws from it. If the FISA document presented on Infowars is “old
news,” then why did none of the “news” media cover it when it was young?
Did MediaMatters, The Weekly Standard, CNN, NPR, the Washington Post, and all the other paragons of the Fourth Estate cover it? We haven’t found a single one that did.
From our initial examination of the FISA document from the ODNI
website, it appears to be the “smoking gun” that Dr. Binney claims it
is. This discovery could be a major assist in the effort to expose the
treasonous Deep State plot to remove President Trump “by any means necessary.”
For their efforts, Alex Jones and William Binney deserve gratitude
from all freedom-loving Americans, not brickbats and snide remarks.

rising from Rome with a fighter jet overhead and a jihadist standing
next to the sort of makeshift armored vehicle ISIS uses for suicide
bombings in Iraq and Syria. “The date is approaching o worshippers of
the cross,” stated the message on the image.
Wafa’ released a Vatican “wolf”
image, with a backpack, rocket-propelled grenade and rifle at the
jihadist’s side as storm clouds gathered over a twilight St. Peter’s
Square. In a message to fellow jihadists, the group noted that “the
crusaders’ feast is approaching.”
In another instance, Wafa’ circulated a poster depicting a vehicle moving toward the Vatican with a cache of weapons, vowing “Christmas blood.”
Official ISIS media has
persisted in claiming responsibility for the Oct. 1 mass shooting in
Vegas, though those claims have grown quieter in recent weeks.
ISIS featured an update on the shooting investigation in a mid-October issue of their al-Naba newsletter, referring to Stephen Paddock both by that name and the nom de guerre Abu Abdul Bar al-Amriki, which they bestowed upon the killer the day after the attack.
Much of that update focused on
how Las Vegas authorities were unprepared for the nature of the attack.
“This highlights the difficulties faced by U.S. cities to protect their
own Crusader citizens from attacks that can take unpredictable forms,”
the newsletter said, emphasizing Paddock’s elevated firing position from
the 32nd floor and quoting police about their inability to stop the
sniper from ground level….

 Erdogan: Islamic education will build 
“new civilization for Turkey”

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

The steady Islamization of Turkey is not new. Since 2002, the government has built 17,000
new mosques, and its goals stretch beyond Turkish borders. Robert
Spencer speculated on January 16 that the “reason why Erdogan has been
so notably dilatory in fighting against the Islamic State may be that he
wants to co-opt its caliphate and incorporate it in a neo-Ottoman
caliphate centered in Istanbul.”
Although the Islamic State lost most of
its territory in the intervening year, that was no thanks to Erdogan.
And now the Turkish leader has stated that one of his goals is to “forge
a ‘pious generation’
in predominantly Muslim Turkey ‘that will work for
the construction of a new civilization.’”
Reuters has observed that
Erdogan’s speeches have increasingly “emphasized Turkey’s Ottoman
history and domestic achievements over Western ideas and influence.”
Erdogan’s ambitions are true to his orthodox beliefs in Islamic
He has boldly extended his reach of influence beyond the
borders of Turkey. He got into a row with Europe over Germany and the
Netherlands blocking his proxies from holding open campaign rallies
among the millions of Turks living in those countries, as Erdogan pushed
for a referendum victory for constitutional changes that would give him
virtually unlimited power.
He continued on his rampage against Europe when the European Court of
Justice (ECJ) allowed employers to ban the headscarf, accusing Europe
of starting a battle between Christianity and Islam
and a clash between the cross and the crescent. This was despite the
ECJ making it clear that banning “any political, philosophical or
religious sign” was not deemed to be discriminatory.

Also, due to Turkey’s firing and “jailing of tens of thousands of soldiers, police, teachers and civil servants following a failed military coup in July 2016,” he accused European critics of “Islamophobia” for merely questioning his human rights record.
Erdogan is now preparing the younger generation for his vision of
Islamic expansion as he pours “billions of dollars into religious
education, including a 100 percent increase in funding for ‘Imam and
Preacher’ religious academies.” 90,000 mosques across Turkey are also
now praying “Qur’anic ‘conquest’ prayers” calling on Muslims to be “ruthless against unbelievers.”

Less than two weeks ago, a primary school in Istanbul
that erected a memorial to commemorate those who lost their lives in
the failed July coup attempt displayed a caption which read:

Whatever you do, you will not stop the rise of the Turkish nation. Whatever you do, the victory will be of Islam.

Turkey’s recent attacks on Kurdish-controlled areas in Syria have
been causing increasing tensions with America, as Erdogan takes up the
historic Turkish mission to crush Kurdish nationalism,  mission the
Turks have been pursuing since the fall of the Ottoman empire.
Fortunately, the Turkish public is not united in its support for
Erdogan’s despotic ambitions, even as he cracks down on any dissent.

“Erdogan: Islamic Education Will Forge ‘Pious Generation’ to Build ‘New Civilization’ for Turkey” , by John Hayward, Breitbart, January 25, 2018:

Turkey was long renowned for its secular government, a
modern state guided by the vision of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk when he built
the Republic of Turkey from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire in the
early years of the last century. The current president, Recep Tayyip
Erdogan, has the opposite vision of Turkey as a Muslim state at the
heart of a new Ottoman Empire.
A report from Reuters examines one of the
means Erdogan is using to achieve this goal: Islamic education in
Turkish schools.

The current president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has the opposite vision
of Turkey as a Muslim state at the heart of a new Ottoman Empire. A new
report from Reuters examines one of the means Erdogan is using to
achieve this goal: Islamic education in Turkish schools.
“Erdogan has said one of his goals is to forge a ‘pious generation’
in predominantly Muslim Turkey ‘that will work for the construction of a
new civilization.’ His recent speeches have emphasized Turkey’s Ottoman
history and domestic achievements over Western ideas and influences,”
Reuters observes.
Erdogan’s “drive to put religion at the heart of national life after
decades of secular dominance” includes pouring “billions of dollars into
religious education,” including a 100 percent increase in funding for
“Imam and Preacher” religious academies. Those schools already get
double the per-pupil funding of regular Turkish schools but dramatically
underperform on standard tests.
In fact, the academic performance of the religious schools was so
poor that total enrollment actually slipped last year, even though
funding is surging and hundreds more of them are under construction,
along with secular schools receiving more religious education or being
outright converted into Imam and Preacher academies. One mother
interviewed for the article complained that the Islamic wing of her
son’s school is visibly nicer and less overcrowded than the secular
wing. Other parents said their children were simply kicked out of a
middle school that converted into an imam and preacher academy, cutting
its total enrollment in half.
“Islam is not being forced on people. It is not a matter of saying
everyone should go to Imam Hatips. We are just providing an opportunity
to those families who want to send their children to Imam Hatips,” a
government adviser told Reuters, using the Turkish name for the
religious schools.
On the other hand, the article goes on to quote secular parents
worried about the astounding surge of Turkish religious education during
the past five years.
Turks from faiths other than Sunni Islam were
nervous as well, expressing fears that Imam Hatip credentials will
either quietly or overtly become a requirement for landing good jobs in
Turkey, effectively pressuring parents to convert their children to
Islam. Religious education is compulsory in Turkey, although some
parents fight in court for the right to exempt their children.
Defenders of the religious schools claim they are surging back after
previous governments suppressed them, in response to growing Turkish
suspicion of Western ideals and a desire for more moral instruction for
Al-Monitor speculated on Tuesday that Erdogan’s drive to Islamicize
Turkey is faltering, in part because the public is growing fatigued with
the fiery leader and his endless crackdowns on dissent and because his
presidency has been so divisive among ethnic and religious groups.
article cited the poor academic performance of Imam Hatip schools as one
sign that Erdogan and the Muslim Brotherhood are losing their grip on
the country.
Some of the other indicators described by Al-Monitor have a
sad-trombone comedic quality to them, like Erdogan asking a rally, “Who
does the Islamic world look up to?” and losing his composure when they
did not reply or growing even angrier when he castigated a Kurdish town
for voting against his assumption of dictatorial powers last year, and
the crowd broke into thunderous applause instead of booing as he
