The results of a survey released last week revealed that two-thirds of 18-39 year-old Americans do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. One-half of the respondents could not name a single concentration camp. One-fourth said the holocaust was a myth and one-tenth blamed it on the Jews.

I guess this shouldn’t come as a surprise. It is very much in line with other recent polls which find that just 27 percent of those under the age of 45 nationally can demonstrate a basic understanding of American history. Additionally, 57 percent  of all Americans don’t know we have nine Supreme Court justices, 60 percent don’t know which countries we fought in WWII, and only 32 percent can correctly name all three branches of government.

Instead of cleaning up its act, the education establishment is doubling down. In fact, America’s children are in the process of having their brains scrubbed clean. Instead of teaching actual history, we are seeing more and more curricula that is pointedly critical of America and its traditional values. Facts are irrelevant. Objectivity is non-existent. Lies are truth.

The new indoctrination is for the most part of the far-left race-obsessed variety. In Virginia, the state Board of Education is in the process of discussing recommendations set forth in a report commissioned by Governor Ralph Northam. It proposes revamping Virginia’s school curriculum, to include “critical race theory,” which claims that “whiteness” is a moral blight and that all white people are complicit in oppressing people of color.

The largest school district in North Carolina has just launched a website that provides Black Lives Matter lessons for teachers. Yes, the appropriately named Wake County will tell white kids to recognize the fact they are privileged, and importantly instruct them on how they can recruit allies to the BLM cause.

Perhaps the biggest splash made by the cultural Marxists is “The 1619 Project,” which is making its way into classrooms across the country. The core of this agenda-driven fantasy claims that one of the primary reasons the colonists revolted against England was to preserve the institution of slavery. However, this was a bridge too far even for Nikole Hannah-Jones, the creator of the fraud, who now claims that she meant to say “some of” the colonists fought to preserve slavery, not all of them.  Hence, the thrust behind the project has been eviscerated, but that change will not deter the zealots from forcing the bogus project on kids all over the country.

In California, where “wokeness” supersedes godliness as an admired attribute in some circles, it’s coming down to crunch time for the embattled Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC). As I wrote last month, the 2020 adaptation of the guidelines is somewhat better than last year’s version, but there are still many problems with it. The ESMC is still advising that students study “modern day movements and intersectional struggles for social Justice like the Immigrant Rights Movement, The Black Lives Matter Movement, the Environmental Justice Movements, Feminist Movements, LGBTQIA Queer Movements, and others.” Also, kids will learn about “strategies and approaches of these movements and apply them to problem solving struggles, challenges, or problems that we identify in our communities. In addition to rigorous reading assignments, information is drawn from student life experiences, major newspapers, culturally conscious musicians, and alternative media. The current information will allow us to see historical trajectories, contemplate social action, and make course material relevant.”

So not only is there an obvious far left slant to the curriculum, students are directed to become social justice warriors.

The good news is that many groups are up in arms about the ESMC. Jewish organizations are outraged that the ESMC states that America’s Jews and Irish have gained “racial privilege.”

The Alliance for Constructive Ethnic Studies, “a grassroots group of parents, teachers, students and immigrants representing all backgrounds, races, ethnicities and political affiliations,” is on the case. Its press release quotes Vera Hartford, a lawyer and political refugee from communist Czechoslovakia. “For those of us that grew up in Soviet bloc countries, the ESMC is like déjà vu. We are dumbfounded by a curriculum that consistently elevates Socialism, Marxism, and Communism as the way students are encouraged to become socially responsible. We are familiar with an educational system that proselytizes this specific political dogma that is proven to be unworkable and discriminatory in itself. It grooms and conditions impressionable minds to an ideology in service of a political agenda. Intolerance, bullying, and loss of freedom inevitably follow.”

Governor Gavin Newsom has until September 30th to sign AB 331, the bill mandating that a one-semester ethnic studies course become a high school graduation requirement for California public school students even though the course contents are not finalized. In fact, the ESMC proponents are in the midst of a “public comment period” which will end on September 30th. Then, in November, the Instructional Quality Commission will consider revisions, and pass its findings along to the state Board of Education. In March 2021 the Board will take action on the proposed curriculum.

The ESMC is nothing more than a Marxist blueprint whose purpose is to indoctrinate California’s children, and it’s now time for all of us to voice our opinion on the manifesto. If there are no major changes and you are a parent, please, please consider homeschooling your kids if at all possible.



5 Things to Know About Amy Coney Barrett



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

President Donald Trump will nominate a Supreme Court justice to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday. Amy Coney Barrett, a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, is widely considered the frontrunner. When Trump was deliberating on whom he would nominate to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, the president said of Barrett, “I’m saving her for Ginsburg.”

Barrett has an impressive resume and an inspiring story. She has articulated a powerful defense of originalism, the method of interpreting the Constitution according to its original public meaning.

1. Barrett’s background

Amy Coney Barrett graduated from Notre Dame Law School first in her class. She has taught there for decades — and continues to teach there while serving as a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. After graduation, she clerked at the Supreme Court for Justice Antonin Scalia. As Princeton professor Robert P. George noted, even fellow clerks who disagreed with Barrett admired her intellect. Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman described her as “a brilliant lawyer.”

As a Notre Dame graduate and professor, Barrett would break the Supreme Court law degree duopoly. All eight current justices hold degrees from one of two — and only two — law schools, Harvard and Yale.

Barrett and her husband have seven children, ranging in age from 5 to 16. They adopted two of them from Haiti. One of her sons also has “special needs.” As George wrote, “As someone who excelled as a legal scholar and reached the pinnacle of her profession as a Supreme Court Justice, Barrett would be an example to women hoping to combine a flourishing family life with a professional vocation.”

While Barrett has only served on the 7th Circuit for three years, that represents more experience than Barack Obama’s appointee, Justice Elena Kagan, who had never served as a judge prior to her nomination to the Supreme Court.

Is Amy Coney Barrett an Originalist?

2. Judicial philosophy

Barrett may have clerked for Scalia, but is she an originalist? Last year, she spoke about her judicial philosophy at the Washington, D.C., branch of my alma mater, Hillsdale College. She rebuked the notion of a “living Constitution,” arguing that the judge’s role is not to twist the text of the Constitution to fit his or her police prescriptions but rather to interpret the law faithfully.

“If the judge is willing not to apply the law but to decide cases in a line, in accordance with personal preference rather than the law, then she’s not actually functioning as a judge at all. She’s functioning as a policymaker,” Barrett explained.

“And I would have had no interest in the job if the job was about policymaking and about making policy decisions,” the judge said. “My interest is in contributing to our tradition of judges upholding the rule of law.”

Barrett also addressed the increasing political polarization centered on the Supreme Court.

“There’s a lot of talk these days about the courts being mere political institutions. But if we reduce the courts to mere politics, then why do we need them? We already have politicians. Courts are not arenas for politics. Courts are places where judges discharge the duty to uphold the rule of law,” she said.

Yet the judge insisted that the Supreme Court is not partisan, not divided along the lines of Republicans and Democrats.

“So I don’t think that five-four decisions or splits on courts are explicable by partisan commitments or by outcomes in particular cases. I think they’re explicable by starting points, by first-order commitments. So there are differences in ways that judges approach the enterprise of interpreting the Constitution,” Barrett explained.

“All judges think that the original meaning of the Constitution—its history, the way that it was understood by those who ratified it, who drafted it, the founding generation—all judges take that as a data point, as relevant,” she said. “Those who are committed to originalism treat it as determinative when the original meaning is discernible. Others just treat it as a data point, but one that would not necessarily control. So that will yield different outcomes in different cases.”

“Some judges approach the Constitution saying, ‘There are some constitutional commitments that we’re not going to back down from because the Constitution enshrines them. But with respect to those that the Constitution does not speak, we’re going to leave it to democratic majorities to work out.’ Others see the Constitution as having a more amorphous and evolving content and speaking to evolving values and majority—evolving values in ways that then democratic majorities don’t have the freedom to make choices,” the judge explained.

Barrett went on to cite Scalia, who “used to say that a judge who likes every result that she reaches is not a very good judge. In fact, she’s a very bad judge. The law simply does not align with a judge’s political preference or personal preference in every case.”

That sure sounds originalist to me.

Blame the Left for Making the Supreme Court Too Political

3. Positions on abortion

Democrats are terrified that Trump’s replacement for Ginsburg would overturn Roe v. Wade(1973), the case in which the Supreme Court reinterpreted the Constitution, effectively amending the Constitution to include a right to abortion. Roe is bad law and should be overturned, but it is extremely important that the Court do so in a wise way. States should be able to make their own laws restricting abortion.

Barrett, a Roman Catholic, has expressed the Catholic doctrine that life begins at conception. However, she made it extremely clear that judges should rule based on the law, not their own personal religious or philosophical convictions.

Barrett has only served on the 7th Circuit for three years, but has a limited record on abortion cases.

In 2018, the court considered a challenge to an Indiana law requiring the burning or cremation of fetal remains after an abortion. The court denied a rehearing of the case and Barrett joined a dissent written by Judge Frank Easterbrook. Easterbrook addressed a separate provision of the law that had been struck down but was not at issue in the rehearing. The law banned abortions based on the race, sex, or disability of the unborn baby. Easterbrook said he doubted that the Constitution bars states from enacting laws to prevent prospective parents from “[u]sing abortion as a way to promote eugenic goals.”

Ultimately, the Supreme Court reversed the 7th Circuit’s opinion on the fetal remains law, upholding the state’s interest in mandating the proper disposal of aborted baby bodies. The justices did not weigh in on the non-discrimination policy, however.

Last year, Barrett joined a dissent when the 7th Circuit denied a rehearing in a case concerning another Indiana law. The court ruled that a law required young women to notify their parents before obtaining an abortion was unconstitutional. When the court refused to rehear the case, Barrett joined a dissent arguing that “[p]reventing a state statute from taking effect is a judicial act of extraordinary gravity in our federal structure.”

The Supreme Court later sent that case back to the lower courts in light of the ruling in June Medical Services v. Russo, which struck down a Louisiana law that requires abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

Interestingly, Barrett’s abortion rulings have not always favored the pro-life side. Last year, she joined an opinion that upheld a Chicago ordinance barring pro-life sidewalk counselors from approaching women entering an abortion clinic. While Barrett likely sympathized with the sidewalk counselors, she upheld the law restraining them — putting the law ahead of her personal beliefs.

3 Reasons Mitch McConnell Is Not a Hypocrite for Considering Trump’s Potential RBG Replacement

4. Other key cases

Barrett’s rulings in two other cases stand out.

In Kanter v. Barr (2019), she dissented when the 7th Circuit upheld the denial of gun rights from a convicted felon. The majority upheld the law denying Second Amendment rights to felons. Barrett dissented.

The felon “had sold shoe inserts that didn’t actually comply with the right standards and then been refunded, gotten money for them anyway. It was fraud, and he had served his sentence,” Barrett told Hillsdale last year.

“Under federal law, those who’ve been convicted of a felony, any felony, lose their gun rights, so they can’t possess a gun thereafter,” Barrett explained. “So Kanter argued that he wasn’t a threat. This was his only conviction. It wasn’t a violent crime.”

She claimed it was unconstitutional to deny the man his Second Amendment rights. She did “a pretty deep dive into the history of the Second Amendment,” following the Supreme Court precedent in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

“That sounds kind of radical, to say felons can have firearms,” Barrett admitted. “But I think it’s because what the longstanding prohibitions were, and in fact, had been, even under federal law until more recently, was that violent felons couldn’t have firearms. … What the history showed me was that there’s been a longstanding practice of saying that those who pose a threat of violence to the community cannot have firearms.”

Barrett also stood up for due process rights in a college Title IX sexual assault case. In Doe v. Purdue University (2019), she wrote for a three-judge panel that reinstituted an anonymous male student’s lawsuit against Purdue University. The student claimed that the university violated his due process rights and that its determination of his guilt had led to his expulsion from the Navy ROTC program, the loss of his scholarship, and the end of his plans to join the Navy.

The court ruled that he should be allowed to pursue his claim against Purdue. “Purdue’s process fell short of what even a high school must provide to a student facing a days-long suspension,” Barrett wrote.

Liberals Are Already Gearing Up to Attack the Notorious ACB… for This Common Christian Phrase

5. “The dogma lives loudly”

During Barrett’s confirmation hearing for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) notoriously imposed something of a religious test. “The dogma lives loudly within you,” Feinstein said, suggesting that Barrett’s religious convictions disqualified her from service on the federal bench.

After Ginsburg’s death, some on the Left have rushed to demonize Barrett. Washington Post book critic Ray Charles suggested that there was something nefarious to Barrett’s statement that she intends to pursue “the kingdom of God.” On the contrary, the “kingdom of God” is a common Christian phrase that has more to do with loving your neighbor as yourself than bringing about some kind of theocracy.

Similarly, Newsweek ran a story claiming that Barrett belonged to a secret cult-like organization that inspired Margaret Atwood’s book The Handmaid’s Tale. In truth, the pentecostal group to which Barrett belonged, People of Praise, had no connection with People of Hope, the group Atwood seized upon. Newsweek corrected the story but did not retract it.

If Trump nominates Barrett on Saturday, expect similarly baseless attacks on this nominee.

One can only look at what this nation has become with complete and utter disdain. The judgment of God is upon this nation when violent anarchists, rioters, looters, and domestic terror groups are allowed to freely assemble in the streets with the foreknowledge that destruction will ensue while Christians, on the other hand, are arrested for singing hymns.

That’s exactly what happened in Moscow, Idaho. While the name resembles the name of the capital city in the Communist nation, Russia, its actions mirror them just as well. The city has now arrested several Christians for gathering in the streets to sing hymns amid the terror and chaos taking over or cities in America.

We hope that this nation will understand what is happening before its too late and hope that more people will come to realize that without faith in Christ, there is no hope.

In case you want to reach the city council members of Moscow, Idaho, their email addresses are listed below:

Of the three arrested, one of them, Gabriel Rench, was a candidate for Latah County Commissioner and was arrested on charges of not social distancing and flouting the facemask order. The two others arrested were a husband and wife on charges of singing too closely together.

It started with his father.

As fighting and instability ravaged Iraqi villages and cities, local Shiite militia offered a means for him to save his family and himself: convert from Christianity to Islam, and gain not only protection but the promise of eternity in heaven. Or, they said, he could remain a Christian, and put his life and his children's at risk.

The father converted.

Then he demanded all his children do the same. "One daughter fled the home," Muna Tagi, a friend of the family based in the United States, related in an e-mail. "The teenage son was expelled from the home, but eventually came back as he had nowhere to stay, and had to be forced, along with his other sister, to convert their IDs to show them as Muslims."

Despite their conversion, however, the two teens secretly continued to wear their crosses beneath their clothes – until their Shiite friend discovered them. "The friend ... cut it from the teen's neck and threw it in the mud," Tagi said. Soon after, the boy received a letter, signed in blood, accompanied by a single bullet.

Such forced conversions are becoming increasingly common in post-Saddam Iraq, extending beyond the 2014 capture and enslavement of Yazidis, and not only because of the violence of ISIS militants. Under Saddam, Christians were largely left alone. Now, says Tagi, churches and Christian communities have come under violent attack because of Shiite rule, Islamist militancy, and al-Qaida's revitalization. Many Christians have faced torture, especially by ISIS militants, who beat them when they could not repeat passages from the Quran.

Unsurprisingly, then, Christians have fled the country in droves: over 1 million have sought sanctuary either in the West or in the country's more tolerant Kurdish areas, leaving a mere 500,000 Christians in Iraq struggling for survival. Thousands who escaped ISIS in 2014 now lie in semi-permanent camps, knowing they may never return home. And while most continue to resist conversion, more and more are starting to give in.

It isn't just Iraq. In Algeria, the Algemeiner reported earlier this year, the government "prohibited Christians and other non-Muslims from speaking publicly about their faith, for fear of influencing Muslims." Moreover, "any Muslim accused of approaching Christians for the purpose of learning more about their faith or beliefs could face years in prison and a hefty fine."

And in Nigeria, home to 80 million Christians (versus 90 million Muslims), Boko Haram and Hausa Fulani militants have made the country one of the most dangerous in the world for Christians, with an estimated 7,000 Nigerian Christians executed since 2015 for their religion. In its 2019 religious freedom report, the U.S. State Department reported that "Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed 17 Christians who had gathered after a baby dedication at a Baptist church...including the mother of the child." They were but a few of the 1,350 Christians estimated to have been killed in Nigeria last year.

And 2020 is turning out to be similarly horrific, warns the Alabama Baptist. A video posted to YouTube on July 22, for instance, shows the execution of five Christian men, and a report issued by former MP Lord David Alton, co-founder of the Movement for Christian Democracy, counts at least 27 murders of Christians during the 24 hours between July 19-20.

But it isn't only the fear of violence that is driving conversions to Islam. While the New York Times reports that the "forced conversions of Hindu girls and women to Islam through kidnapping and coerced marriages occur throughout Pakistan," other Muslim groups use bribery to seduce impoverished Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians to abandon their faith. Indeed, in June, several dozen Hindus converted in a mass ceremony in South Pakistan seeking to escape the constant discrimination – in jobs, housing, and society – that Hindus typically experience in the Muslim majority country.

"The dehumanization of minorities coupled with these very scary times we are living in – a weak economy and now the pandemic – we may see a raft of people converting to Islam to stave off violence or hunger or just to live to see another day," former Pakistani lawmaker Farahnaz Ispahani told the New York Times in August.

One wealthy Muslim in Pakistan has taken particular advantage of the current economic crisis. In a video posted on social media site TikTok, Mian Kashif Zameer Chohadary announced his plan to pay 200,000 rupees (about $2,000) to any Christian who converts to Islam – with 1 million rupees (nearly $6,000) for a family. "Please accept Islam," he says in the video, "which is the best religion." The video, according to AsiaNews, quickly went viral.

Yet even these non-violent methods are problematic, the Times reports, noting that

"Hindu rights groups are also troubled by the seemingly voluntary conversions, saying they take place under such economic duress that they are tantamount to a forced conversion anyway." Moreover, once non-Muslims convert to Islam, they are unable to return to their former religion: apostasy is punishable by death in Islam, and many countries – including Iraq and Pakistan – consider it a capital offense.

For her part, Muna Tagi is equally troubled about the situation in Iraq. "My concern for Iraqi Christians, at present, is that there are many unreported incidents like this one, never known or reported, [for fear of] retaliation. And I strongly believe it will get worse in the future, as with each conversion success will empower these militia[s] to pursue the next."

It is largely, then, up to the West to aid these endangered families: "Open, firm talk between leaders of the west and Iraqi government, is [needed] first," she believes. And second, "to help these families to migrate, if they choose to do so."

The new Evangelical progressive left, with its figureheads like Russell Moore, Tim Keller, Mark Dever, Thabiti Anyabwile, and, of course, Southern Baptist lady-preacher, Beth Moore, have been relentlessly trying to make the case that the two-party system in America causes people to have to choose between the born and the unborn.

Despite the fact that this notion is absurdly and patently false, these progressives have a political ambition to turn the church into a Democrat voting platform. The bottom line isn’t that they are actually opposed to the two-party system — they’re not. It’s that they are Democrats and want to turn Evangelicals, who overwhelmingly support the Republican party, away from the Republican party. They don’t need Evangelicals to vote Democrat in order for Democrats to gain the upper hand, they just need guilt them into not voting at all, or voting for a third party.

Beth Moore recently made this absurd assertion — that the two-party system causes us to choose between the born and the unborn.

But this assertion is stupid and to suggest that the Democrats care about the born while the Republicans only care about the unborn is false. The Democrats do not care about either — their version of justice is as perverted as Beth Moore’s gospel. They don’t want justice, they want to enslave people. They want to destroy religious freedom. They want to allow chaos and anarchy to continue in this world and allow criminals to roam the streets unabated by law enforcement. And we need not even go into the myriad other ways that the Democrat party is incompatible with Christianity.

Sharia-adherent leftist activist and former Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour tweeted Wednesday: “Justice has NOT been served. Rise UP. All across this country. Everywhere. Rise up for #BreonnaTaylor.”

She meant it: yesterday evening Sarsour, who was bounced from the Women’s March leadership because of her anti-Semitism, was spotted in video from Louisville, walking among protesters and apparently leading them to their next destination. Sarsour’s presence among demonstrators in Louisville, many of whom quickly began rioting (two police officers were shot), was yet another example of the leftist/Islamic alliance.

We saw two other such examples during the riots in New York City several months ago. Urooj Rahman, a Muslim lawyer and activist for the Palestinian jihad, threw a Molotov cocktail into a police cruiser, and in Brooklyn, a Muslim migrant from Bosnia named Dzenan Camovic stabbedan NYPD officer, Yayonfrant Jean Pierre, in the neck while screaming “Allahu akbar.”

Sarsour’s presence in Louisville was no real surprise. She was arrested in Louisville on August 25 at “BreonnaCon,” an earlier protest over the death of Taylor. Back on May 27, she tweeted: “‘A riot,’ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, ‘is the language of the unheard.’ #JusticeForFloyd.”

Sarsour is also an unapologetic defender of Sharia. As far back as September 22, 2011, Sarsour tweeted: “shariah law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics.” Her position didn’t change over time. On May 12, 2015, she tweeted: “If you are still paying interest, then Sharia Law hasn’t taken over America. #justsaying.” And on April 10, 2016, Sarsour tweeted about Sharia again: “Sharia Law is misunderstood & has been pushed as some evil Muslim agenda.”

Sarsour tweeted on March 8, 2011: “Brigitte Gabriel = Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking 4 an a$$ whippin’. I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women.” This call for physical violence against someone she hated was a harbinger of things to come, but it received no notice among her sycophants on the left. After all, why would it? They’re committed to the same violence.

Linda Sarsour is also a practiced purveyor of the grievance-mongering that keeps the rioters’ ranks full. She is an energetic purveyor of the “Islamophobia” myth and has hysterically claimed that “Muslim kids” are being “executed” in the United States. She was instrumental in prevailing upon New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to end legal and necessary surveillance in Muslim communities in New York. She was also a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, and even claimed that the jihad underwear bomber was a CIA agent — part of what she claims is a U.S. war against Islam. She is also an enthusiastic supporter of the “Palestinian” jihad against Israel and has even claimed that feminists cannot and must not support Israel.

This is the left today. Sarsour’s anti-Semitism, her embrace of Sharia, her paranoid “Islamophobia” conspiracy-mongering – all that is the mainstream left now. For Linda Sarsour is not alone; other Muslim activists in the U.S. have actively fostered this alliance. Zahra Billoo, Executive Director of the San Francisco Bay Area office of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA), tweeted: “Non-Black POC, first and second generation immigrant Muslims friends in particular, what are you doing today to support #BlackLivesMatter?” Imraan Siddiqi of CAIR-Arizona tweeted out a video of a hijab-wearing Muslim woman kicking a tear gas canister toward police with the approving comment, “Drop-kick that tear-gas canister, sister.”

Meanwhile, not long ago in Los Angeles, rioters were so grieved and angered by Floyd’s death that they spray-painted “Free Palestine” on the wall of a synagogue. This was in line with Urooj Rahman’s Molotov cocktail back in Brooklyn. In an interview before her attack, she enunciated the common goal of both movements: “This s–t won’t ever stop unless we f–kin’ take it all down.”

In both the interview and during her attack, Rahman kept a Palestinian keffiyeh close to her face. Her sartorial choice was not incidental. With her attempted torching of the police cruiser (her Molotov cocktail didn’t light), she brought Palestinian jihad tactics to the riots in the U.S. She also revealed the congruence between the ideology of the left in America today and that of jihadists, not just the Palestinians, but all over the world.

Meanwhile, the left’s anti-Americanism and determination to “f–kin’ take it all down” has been on abundant display in the recent riots in Louisville and elsewhere, and continues, to the apparent delight of Muslims such as Linda Sarsour, Urooj Rahman, Zahra Billoo, and Imraan Siddiqi. When Rahman was arrested, she was wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES REGARDLESS.” The Arabic word for “struggle” is, of course, jihad.

President Trump observes the body of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lying in state at the the Supreme Court.
Proving that everything is political to the left, a group of “mourners” at the Supreme Court turned into third-world football hooligans the moment President Trump and first lady Melania showed up to pay respects to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.Ginsburg died Friday after a long battle with cancer.

As President Trump and Melania discretely entered the portico behind where Ginsburg lay in repose, the “mourners” took a second to notice and then began booing. The boos morphed into chants.

Here’s Why Justice Ginsburg Is Being Laid to Rest at a Military Cemetery

The mourners began chanting things that sounded like “Shut it down!” and “Vote him out” and, supposedly, “Honor her wish.”

What, no Molotov cocktails and looting? No “Death to America” chants?

More and more the guardrails to civil and polite society are ripped apart when it suits the Democrats’ political purposes. The July funeral for civil rights icon John Lewis was reduced to a political rally.

Once again, Democrats keep it “classy.”

Ginsburg will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol next. She’ll be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.

Video: Aggressive BLM Agitators Harass Elderly Couple At Restaurant, Threaten To Knock Them 'The F**k Out'



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

Aggressive BLM agitators continued their campaign of harassing white people minding their own business at restaurants Wednesday night, this time taking over a couple’s table at an eatery in St. Petersburg, Florida and threatening them with violence.

The video shows scores of agitators chanting “Stand up, fight back!” outside the restaurant, with several of the troublemakers then deciding to harass the elderly couple.

When the woman told the lead agitator “This is my table”, and attempted to remove him/her/them/it, she was called a “Karen” and told that the protesters would “knock your old-**s boyfriend the f**k out.”


This is now a familiar scene at BLM “protests”, despite the fact that it achieves absolute nothing and highlights how they rely on intimidation and thuggery to make a point.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Mennonite community in Greene County, Indiana is grieving after a mother of four was killed by robbers on Thursday as her husband was fixing issues with their work trailer.

Jonathan and Wilma Hochstetler ran J&W Commercial Roofing in Bloomfield. While Jonathan was on a job site on Wednesday evening, a tire on the couple’s trailer blew out.

Jonathan had a crew member drive his truck home to his wife, who in turn drove over an hour to Indianapolis to bring him a spare tire. The couple’s six-year-old son rode along.

By the time the tire was changed, it was after midnight, and Hochstetler noticed that the lights on the trailer weren’t working either.

While looking into the apparent wiring issue, two armed men approached the couple and demanded their money. They also took Wilma’s cell phone.

The men seemed to walk away without issue after taking what they wanted, but according to Sam Hochstetler, Jonathan’s father, “[a]ll of a sudden, they just turned and shot.”

According to the Indianapolis Star, Wilma Hochstetler died on the scene. Her husband was shot in the neck. He walked over to the vehicle, where their young son handed off Jonathan Hochstetler’s cell phone to call 911.

Hochstetler was transported to a local hospital where it was found that he suffered broken bones in the jaw and neck. While able to speak, he is currently obtaining nourishment via a feeding tube.

The couple was to have celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary next month. They both grew up Amish and were “childhood sweethearts,” reports state.

The family is also dealing with the difficult task of explaining to the Hochstetler’s six-year-old son, who witnessed the incident, that their mother isn’t coming back home.

The funeral service for Wilma Hochstetler is scheduled for Saturday at Elnora Bible Institute with visitation on Friday.

“Wilma had a tremendous love for the Lord and enjoyed teaching her children the Bible and of His works,” the obituary for the 40-year-old mother of four reads. “She enjoyed music, spending time with her family and helping other people.”

Sam Hochstetler told the Indianapolis Star that his son holds no animosity toward the attackers, finding God’s peace in the middle of the storm.

“We just sense the grace of God and the prayers of friends,” he said. “Jonathan’s testimony this afternoon is, ‘I have peace. I’m calm. I’m not angry. I’m not bitter.’ He said, ‘I may struggle with it later, but currently, I have total peace.’ He’s just trusting the Lord to take him through.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the costs of Wilma’s funeral and Jonathan’s recovery. As of press time, more than $171K had been raised for the family out of the $250K goal.

“Pro-Abortion Female Bible Teacher,” Reformation Charlotte, Sept. 21, 2020: “Rebecca Shrader refers to herself as 
a ‘pro-life feminist, pro-choice Christian’ who authored a ‘statement of lament’ for white people to sign denouncing 
their skin color. 
Shrader is a small group Bible teacher at J.D. Greear’s Summit Church in North Carolina, and proudly boasts it. 
[Greear has twice been elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention.] Shrader is a very confused person 
who believes that she is ‘pro-life’ because she chose not to kill her own children. However, Shrader is continually and 
adamantly clear that she believes every woman should have the ‘choice’ whether or not to end their own children’s 
lives. She defends Planned Parenthood and does not believe that life begins at conception. ... So it should come as 
no surprise that Shrader, a teacher and member in good standing at the Southern Baptist Convention president’s 
church, praises one of the most anti-Christ, pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Supreme Court Justices ever to walk the 
face of this earth, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

from “All Schools,” CBN News, Sept. 9, 2020: “Beginning this month, all schools in England are required to teach an 
LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum. High schools will educate students on sexual orientation, gender identity, and healthy 
relationships while primary schools will teach children about different families--including LGBTQ members. The 
new guidelines indicate that an updated curriculum will allow students to achieve ‘mental wellbeing’ and ‘to know 
how to be safe and healthy.’ ... Last November, parents in Birmingham protested against their children learning 
about LGBTQ equality, arguing that lessons on same-sex relationships go against their religious beliefs. Parents 
held signs saying ‘My Child My Choice,’ ‘Let Kids Be Kids,’ and ‘Say No to Sexualisation to Children.’ ... Despite the 
resistance in Birmingham, members of the English Parliament voted 538-21 in favor of the new curriculum to 
begin in September 2020.”

BLACK LIVES MATTER LEADERS PRACTICE VOODOO (Friday Church News Notes, September 25, 2020,, [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Black Lives Matter 
Co-Founder,”, Aug. 28, 2020: “In an interview posted to social media, Black Lives Matter (BLM) 
Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors, along with BLM Los Angeles Co-Founder Melina Abdullah, discussed the ‘spiritual’ 
component of the movement, explaining the practices and ‘rituals’ performed to remember and ‘invoke’ the spirits 
of deceased African Americans. ‘We speak their names … [and] you kind of invoke that spirit, and then their spirits 
actually become present with you,’ Abdullah, a professor at California State University, stated during the discussion
 hosted by Fowler Museum at UCLA. Cullors said, ‘In my tradition, you offer things that your loved one who passed 
away would want, whether it’s honey or tobacco or things like that,’ she said, referring to the creation of an 
‘ancestor altar,’ which is sometimes practiced in African cultures. ... As previously reported, in 2018, Abdullah 
poured libation and summoned the spirits of a number of deceased African American leaders during an event at 
Hollywood United Methodist Church.  She instructed those gathered to declare ‘ashe’ as she made declarations 
and poured bottled water into a plant. According to the website, ‘ashe’ ... is an ‘African 
philosophical concept through which the Yoruba of Nigeria conceive the power to make things happen and produce 
change.’ ... Abdullah said during her recent interview with Cullors, ‘When we first started, I remember us going to 
the ocean and doing these rituals and really feeding our spirit.’ ... As previously reported, Black Lives Matter was 
formed by Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi in 2013 in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the 
shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Cullors is a self-described ‘queer’; Garza identifies as lesbian; and 
Tometi is a self-described feminist. ... the BLM site’s ‘What We Believe’ page also outlines, ‘We foster a queer‐
affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of 
heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose 
otherwise).’” “There shall not be found among youany one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through 
the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter 
with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: 
and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee” 
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12).

Notes, September 25, 2020,, [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted 
from an interview by U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr with Townhall, Sept. 11, 2020: “They’re basically a collection 
of liars. 
Most of the mainstream media. They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect 
example of that were the riots. Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, 
reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened 
group of street fighting radicals and they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting 
otherwise and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn’t 
until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid. The 
press has dropped, in my view--and I’m talking about the national mainstream media--has dropped any pretense 
of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they’re reporting to 
achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth. They’re very 
mendacious about it. It’s very destructive to our Republic; it’s very destructive to the Democratic system to have 
that, especially being so monolithic. It’s contributing to a lot of the intensity and partisanship. ... I think there are 
a handful of reporters in the mainstream media that still have journalistic integrity, and there are some, but the 
overwhelming majority don’t have it anymore.”
