President Joe Biden promised to be a president “for all Americans,” even for those who did not vote for him. Yet in his first few days in office, Biden signed divisive executive orders championing the nebulous concept of gender identity over biological sex. Biden’s new orders threaten to upend science and fairness in many segments of American society, including women’s sports, women’s private spaces, the military, and medicine. Republicans in at least 13 states are fighting back.

Biden issued an executive order banning “discrimination” on the basis of gender identity. The order requires schools to open girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, and sports leagues to biological boys. It requires health care plans to pay for experimental transgender “treatments” and requires doctors and hospitals to perform them.

This order enforced the Supreme Court’s ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County (2020), which redefined “discrimination on the basis of sex” in federal law to include discrimination on the basis of gender identity. As Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito warned in his dissent, this move threatens “freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and personal privacy and safety.”

Specifically, Alito warned that allowing biological males to enter women’s bathrooms and changing rooms may invite assault or abuse. He warned that opening women’s sports to biological males would “force young women to compete against students who have a very significant biological advantage.” He warned that the Court’s ruling would force rape crisis centers to admit biological males if they claim to identify as women.

Alito also warned that the Court’s ruling — and, by extension, Biden’s order — would prevent religious organizations from only hiring people who “actually live the faith.” He warned the ruling would force employers and health care providers to endorse transgender surgeries. He warned that this broad interpretation of discrimination would suppress free speech, forcing people to kowtow to transgender pronouns.

States are considering laws that address these concerns.

1. Women’s sports.

“The science is settled: boys have an unfair competitive advantage over girls in athletics,” Aaron Baer, president of the Center for Christian Virtue in Ohio, said in a statement after Republicans filed the Save Women’s Sports Act in the Ohio House of Representatives. “As the father of two girls, [I think] it’s unbelievable that the Biden administration would put our daughters at risk, and deny them a level playing field by forcing them to compete against boys.”

Baer and his Christian organization are far from alone in raising concerns about the destruction of women’s sports. Feminists and scientific journals have warned that males have biological advantages over females that cannot be erased by simply identifying as female. Women’s sports exist to enable fair competition, and transgender activism destroys that possibility.

Duke Law School professor Doriane Lambelet Coleman warned that if women’s sports must admit biological men, “the very best women in the world would lose to literally thousands of boys and men, including thousands who would be considered second-tier.”

Republicans have spearheaded legislation to protect women’s sports in Georgia (H.B. 276), Missouri (H.B. 1077), Ohio (H.B. 61), Tennessee (H.B. 3), Texas (H.B. 1458), and Utah (H.B. 302). The Montana House passed the “Save Women’s Sports Act” (H.B. 112) last month and the Mississippi Senate passed the “Mississippi Fairness Act” (S.B. 2536) last week.

2. Protecting children’s health

While Biden has not explicitly supported experimental transgender “treatments” for minors such as so-called “puberty-blocking” drugs and cross-sex hormones, he has endorsed transgender identity and activism for kids under age 10 and he has nominated an openly transgender official to serve as assistant secretary of health at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Transgenderism has already caused medical mixups, to deadly effect. In one case, a pregnant woman who identified as a man went to the hospital with abdominal pains. Because the woman’s records identified her as a man, the hospital ruled out labor and did not give her the treatment she needed. Her baby died.

There is no evidence that transgender surgery improves the mental health outcomes of gender dysphoric people. Men and women who formerly identified as transgender and underwent surgery have grown to reject transgender identity and lament the damage they did to their own bodies.

Last year, Britain’s High Court ruled that children under age 16 lack the ability to consent to “puberty-blocking” drugs and cross-sex hormones that have irreversible life-long effects. Children who undergo such “treatments” often persist in transgender identity and lose their ability to have children later in life.

In this context, the Alabama House and Senate are considering the Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act (H.B. 1 and S.B. 10), which would prohibit experimental transgender “treatments” on children who cannot give informed consent to permanent life-altering procedures. The bill would make it a felony for a doctor to subject a child to “puberty blockers” or cross-sex hormones. Republicans in Tennessee introduced a similar bill (S.B. 657), as did legislators in Georgia (H.B. 401). Republicans in Kentucky filed a bill to prevent transgender “treatments” without written consent from a parent or guardian (H.B. 477).

3. Bathroom bills

While North Carolina repealed its H.B. 2 legislation, which defended women’s privacy in multiple-stall bathrooms, other states have considered such legislation. Republicans in Iowa filed a bill to prohibit “persons from entering single and multiple occupancy toilet facilities in elementary and secondary schools that do not correspond with the person’s biological sex” (S.F. 224).

Transgender activists claim such bills are unnecessary because people who genuinely suffer from gender dysphoria (the persistent and painful condition of identifying with the gender opposite one’s biological sex) do not represent a threat in private spaces. Unfortunately, opening sex-segregated spaces like bathrooms and changing rooms would not just open the doors to individuals with gender dysphoria — it would also allow provocateurs like Jessica Yaniv and perverts to access private women’s spaces.

4. Religious freedom and medical ethics.

Many Americans — including employers, doctors, and various other health care providers — have moral and religious objections to transgender “treatments,” especially to surgeries that permanently sterilize patients. Biden has expressed hostility to religious freedom protections in the health care industry and his transgender executive order may force some health care providers to carry out these procedures in violation of their consciences.

The day before Biden became president, a federal court in North Dakota defended Roman Catholic health care providers from an Obamacare mandate forcing doctors and nurses to perform transgender surgeries. Catholic hospitals refuse to carry out elective surgeries that result in sterilization because they interpret such surgeries as perpetuating harm and therefore violating the Hippocratic Oath. Some doctors have warned that even the hormones — the less invasive “treatment” — give healthy people a disease.

Physicians, health care providers, and employers should enjoy the religious freedom to refrain from carrying out or funding such surgeries — and this conscience protection should extend to everyone who considers transgender surgery to be physically harmful, regardless of their faith.

Republicans in Arkansas (S.B. 289), Kentucky (S.B. 83), and South Dakota (H.B. 1247) have filed legislation to protect the consciences of health care workers on this issue.

Many of these bills have a good chance of becoming law, and these efforts represent a long-overdue backlash to the radical activism of transgender identity in various aspects of American society. Unfortunately, most of the legacy media has bought into the worldview of transgenderism. Outlets like CNN have reported these legislative efforts as “anti-LGBTQ bills.” In reporting on the bills, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) repeated the far-left smear factory the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) false accusation that Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) — a mainstream conservative Christian law firm supporting many of these bills — is a “hate group” that belongs on a list with the Ku Klux Klan. HRC blasted ADF and the Heritage Foundation as “hateful anti-LGBTQ organizations.”

Conservatives must continue to fight the noxious ideology of transgender activism and the cancel culture that seeks to silence all opposition to this transgender groupthink. You can help with this important effort by subscribing to PJ Media VIP.

Hillsong Founder and CEO Stepping Down From Leadership

Hillsong has been a scandal-plagued church since its founding. The organization, which has often found itself defending indefensible actions by its leaders and members, has become nothing less than a personality cult for high-profile celebrities — like Justin Bieber and Chris Pratt — and their followers to attend who want to be able to say they’re “Christians” without having to actually commit themselves to any doctrinal standards.

The organization has never fully recovered from its pedophile cover-up scandal involving CEO Brian Houston’s father, Frank Houston.

Other scandals include NYC Lentz’ telling CNN that he may be open to affirming homosexuals at some point and his daughter caught on camera taking part in an anti-police protest as she screeches and screams at police. And gay advocacy groups have claimed that Hillsong is secretly pro-gay, but won’t announce it publicly. Hillsong’s CEO, Brian Houston, says that we shouldn’t “judge” homosexuals because God is a “God of love” and threw Chris Pratt under the bus after Pratt publicly supported a biblical view on sexuality.

Hillsong has hosted Roman Catholic masses, has put on literal circus performances, held sleazy Christmas performances and paraded scantily clad women across the stage, and featured a “naked cowboy” at a women’s conference followed by a “naked Santa” at another conference. It’s easy to see why so many Bible-believing Christians refuse to even allow their presence through music in their churches — Hillsong is a prosperity gospel cult and a breeding ground of false converts. And their leaders are dropping like flies — including Marty Sampson, the worship leader who renounced his faith altogether after the fame and glory Hillsong offered him was no longer enough to satisfy his carnal desires.

And now, the church is being sued by the owner of a building they were renting in Connecticut after prematurely canceling the lease and leaving over 100 thousand dollars in rent unpaid and stolen equipment.

Brian Houston, the founder and CEO recently told his audience that he and his controversial “sex advice book” wife, Bobbie Houston that as they were aging, they no longer had the ability to lead such an astronomically-sized global organization, stating that it would be “unsustainable for us to be able to lead everything that we’re leading right now. I want to be looking at ways we can share that load.”

After the last pastoral sex scandal involving Hillsong NYC pastor, Carl Lentz — who was fired prior to admitting to having frequent sex outside of marriage — Houston expressed regret for not having dealt with the “leadership issue” sooner.

“So you know, this year is our 38th year since Bobbie and I started out here in the Hills,” said Houston during the second Vision Sunday service of the weekend. “I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching and praying about the future and the way ahead.”

He promised the audience that he wasn’t retiring and that he and Bobbie would “still be around” and that he would still preach “as long as they want me to.”

According to reports, Houston will be handing over leadership to Gary Clarke who is currently the lead pastor of the Hillsong UK branch.

Principled People Should Cut All Ties With the Episcopal Church

Episcopal

SEE: https://reformationcharlotte.org/2021/02/16/principled-people-should-cut-all-ties-with-the-episcopal-church/;

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

The Washington National Cathedral has been dodging intense incoming missile fire since they apologized to livid LGBTQ bullies for having conservative author Max Lucado preach at its virtual Sunday service recently. The church invited Max to “build bridges,” but his biblical views on sexuality and marriage make them hold their breath in angst. When those defenders of equal rights at the local Lavender Club started shooting at Cathedral leaders, they, along with the Bishop, folded like a cheap suit as all unprincipled people do.

Church officials blamed their “mistake” on their “straight privilege” and begged forgiveness for the “pain” they had caused. The two gutless church leaders promised to schedule a “listening session” for the LGBTQ crowd who had turned blue from holding their breath.

The Episcopal Church is so twisted that it put one of their bishops on trial for following the Bible! William Love was a very conservative and orthodox Episcopal Bishop of Albany, New York, and was tried by his denomination for being too biblical. The Bishop abides by the traditional Christian doctrine that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. The courageous Bishop was put on trial “after banning gay marriage ceremonies in his diocese.”

Bishop Love is as out of place in the radical Episcopal denomination as Louis Farrakhan at a Jewish bar mitzvah. After enormous pressure from his craven denominational leaders, Love resigned from his bishopric effective February 1, 2021.

Good, now other principled leaders and ordinary church members should leave the denomination as if their hair were on fire.

Frankly, all principled people, with any cursory knowledge of biblical truth, should cut all ties with all the mainline churches that have become little more than social clubs. Most of these churches are very light on the Bible and deep into social justice, promotion of same-sex “marriage,” transgenderism, globalism, climate change, etc. By continuing in apostate denominations, members become participants in the compromise and corruption of their evil deeds.

The Episcopal Church has been dominated by weirdos such as Bishops James Pike, John Spong, and Gene Robinson. Their best-known churches are the National Cathedral and St. John’s in Washington, D.C. Those churches would be empty and used as warehouses if they were not historic places.

I watched two hours of a dialogue held at the National Cathedral dealing with two cathedral windows that depict Robert E. Lee and Thomas Stonewall Jackson. Cathedral officials had been wrestling with this for a long time, and in September 2017, the windows were removed.

The media and the panel discussion I watched were concerned about the windows telling an “incomplete and misleading account of our history.” An official said, “We are committed to finding ways to offer a richer, more balanced expression of our nation’s history.” I’ll buy that; however, I demand some consistency, something that never concerns liberals.

During the panel discussion, the Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Canon Theologian at the Cathedral, spoke approvingly of Nat Turner, and another spoke positively of W. E. B. Du Bois. The panelists also agreed that one must know about Thomas Jefferson’s ownership of hundreds of slaves to really know the man. Okay, I’ll accept that, but no one seemed concerned to tell the whole story about Turner and Du Bois, so I will. Maybe the panel, consisting of two white people and two black people, does not know the complete stories of those men.

Nat Turner, a black slave in Virginia, claimed to be a Baptist preacher who always felt destined for greatness, and his parents encouraged him, considering him a prophet. They were convinced of that because of unusual marks on his head and breast! Turner reported seeing spirits fighting in the sky, and he allegedly heard voices. Being a “prophet,” he communicated “revelations” to fellow slaves. I don’t need to emphasize that such is more indicative of a paranoid than a prophet.

Then, when Mount St. Helens erupted on February 12, 1831, nearly 3,000 miles away, Virginia’s atmospheric conditions convinced Turner that God wanted him to kill his white enemies! About seven months later, on August 21, 1831, he and other slaves attacked and killed 55 white people, including men, women, and children–some as they slept. One victim was a baby in its cradle. Some of the victims were beheaded, including children. The killers used axes, clubs, swords, and guns.

Armed citizens confronted the attackers, and Turner was captured, tried, and executed by hanging after hiding for two months. His corpse was flayed, beheaded, and quartered. It seems the slaveholders wanted to send a message to their slaves.

Mindless, guilt-ridden Whites and gullible Blacks seek to make every Black a hero, but surely, no sane person thinks Turner was anything but a monster.

Another black hero is W. E. B. Du Bois (who insisted on being called “Dr. Du Bois”), an impressive intellectual who, in 1895, was the first Black to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. He was a founder of the NAACP (most of the executive officers were white) in 1909, and he was hired as editor of their journal The Crisis. Du Bois later resigned (some say he was dismissed) in 1934 over the reversal of his segregation position to accepting the “separate but equal” position as a satisfactory goal for Blacks. He had rejected Frederick Douglass’ plea for black Americans to integrate into white society. He also sparred with Booker T. Washington, the number one black leader in America who was highly respected by Whites and Blacks.

Du Bois thought Booker T. Washington was too slow and patient in dealing with segregation. Washington was an accommodator, and Du Bois was an agitator. Du Bois was an effective advocate for civil rights but leaned far to the left, defending and joining many socialist causes. He taught that capitalism was a major cause of racism. Du Bois was a peace advocate and promoted nuclear disarmament. He began to support the Communist Party and warmed to Marx’s atheism.

Many of Du Bois’ friends and supporters shunned him, especially after the FBI continued to investigate his actions, associates, and his advocacies. He ended up joining the American Communist Party, traveled to Russia and China (becoming their cheerleader), and became a citizen of Ghana, where he died in 1963.

I wonder why the Episcopal leaders did not think it necessary to reveal the full scope of Du Bois’ life. Maybe because of the stories of their own leaders.

Bishop James Pike died a bishop in the Episcopal Church, although he said that he was leaving the denomination. In his personal life, Pike was a chain-smoker and an alcoholic. In theology, he was a heretic even to many conservative Episcopalians. Many heresy charges were brought against him with plenty of facts to substantiate them. The cowardly bishops of the denomination refused to pursue heresy charges. Pike did not believe in Hell, the Trinity, and virgin birth.

Pike was a troubled man all his life. He married Jane Alvies then divorced in 1941. He married Esther Yanovsky in 1942, and she divorced him in 1966. They had four children. Pike lived with (but did not marry) his secretary Maren Bergrud until 1967 when she committed suicide after a heated argument with him. Pike performed her funeral in his church.

In 1968, he married Diane Kennedy and went to Israel on an extended honeymoon. They were researching a book Pike was planning to write. While near the Dead Sea without a guide, they had car trouble, and the couple walked away from the car. Soon, Diane went alone to seek help leaving her husband. She stumbled into workers who took her to safety. Pike’s body was discovered a few days later after an intensive search.

Bishop John Shelby Spong is another Episcopalian leader who is very careful that no one would ever mistake him for a Bible-believer. Of course, he, like Pike and other unbelieving Bishops, makes an excellent living preaching the Bible he does not believe. Such people have plenty of chutzpah but no character. Spong teaches that Christ was “adopted by God as his son” in his Born of a Woman, and He rejects the historical truths essential to Christianity, such as the virgin birth and the bodily resurrection of Christ. Neither does Spong believe that Christ is the only way of salvation. He teaches that the Apostle Paul was a pervert. He believes the creation story is nonsense.

When the Episcopal denomination consecrated homosexual Gene Robinson as a Bishop in 2003, the denomination experienced the “worst single outflow of Episcopalians in modern history,” over 100,000.

They should have lost every genuine Christian, but alas, many Christians don’t know what the Bible teaches, or they don’t care.

Every true Christian should leave every corrupt mainline church because, without truth, all you have is a cult.

SARAH CORRIHER: Police Did the Capitol Killings

It is time to honestly examine the deaths which occurred at the Save America protest on January 6th, in Washington D.C. Despite Big Media's fabrications and fantasies, the truth is that the patriotic protesters did not kill anyone. In direct opposition to weeks of media reports, Trump's supporters were the only ones who were killed on that day and they were killed by wanton police violence. It looks like the situation was carefully orchestrated to get people killed, so that their deaths could be used to satisfy a nefarious political agenda.

‘ARMIES OF ILLEGAL MIGRANTS’ INVADE HUNGARIAN HOMES~MAYOR DEMANDS MILITARY ACTION (VIDEO)

‘Armies of Illegal Migrants’ Invade Hungarian Homes – Mayor Demands Military Action (Video)

Mayor László Toroczkai of Ásotthalom is calling on the Hungarian military to protect his town from “armies” of “military-aged illegal migrants” ransacking and seizing control of citizens farms and homes. The mayor is demanding the government send more military and police forces to his struggling border town.

Migrants occupying citizen’s farms and homes has become a common occurrence according to Mayor Toroczkai. Just recently the mayor filmed his visit to an elderly woman’s farm that had been overrun by 65 dangerous migrants while she was away for the day. When the woman returned home she found an army of illegals had broken into her house, tore down the doors, smashed windows, and taken possession of her property. The migrants had overrun and occupied every room in her home.

The majority of the migrants invading the Hungarian border, declare themselves as Syrian, Libyan, Palestinian, Ghanaian, Moroccan, Tunisian, and Afghan nationals. The Illegal migrants that storm the Hungarian border have been shown to be extremely dangerous and often sharia-adherent with values and ambitions that are in staunch opposition to Western values and laws.

Watch the following video by Mayor László Toroczkai translated by RAIR Foundation USA,

PM Viktor Orbán

Well organized armies of illegals have been attacking Hungarian and other Western European countries for years. Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was the first EU leader to close borders to asylum-seekers in 2015 and has consistently been the one EU leader who has called the migrants exactly what they are — “invaders,” explaining that the women and children are used as props for the media and pointing out that most of the migrants are military aged men who are invading Europe. 

Despite all the efforts to demonize him, Orbán has not wavered, repeating in his State of the Union address last year, that the main task of his government is to preserve Hungary’s security and Christian culture, once again vowing to never allow his Christian country to be changed by illegal invaders, and warning of the “Soros Plan, to settle a foreign population.”

Demographic Impact From Migration

Orbán recently sounded the alarms that by 2050, twenty percent of the European population will be Muslim due to Western Europe’s pursuit of multiculturalism and mass migration. However, Hungary and Central Europe continue to reject the “Soros Plan, to settle a foreign population.”

In Belgium, one third of the country’s population is of foreign origin, and in Brussels, Belgians are already the minority. Within a generation, Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, will have a population in which the majority of people are of foreign background.

Meanwhile, Democrat Joe Biden has vowed to flood America with 700% more “refugees” from terrorist hotspots around the world through the corrupt U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. 

Hungary’s history, even more than most European nations, has been a struggle for freedom. All within the last century, Hungary has had to fight off the Ottoman Islamic Invasion, the Nazis and the communists all. As a result, Hungarians are generally not fond of the idea of sacrificing themselves to invaders aiming to change societal norms and customs.

BRUSSELS: MOHAMED, MOHAMMED AND AHMED ARE THE MOST COMMON NAMES IN MANY MUNICIPALITIES

Brussels: Mohamed, Mohammed and Ahmed are the Most Common Names in Many Municipalities

Over the last decade, Belgium has changed dramatically. Without any public debate, it has become a massive migration state. Their left-wing government’s open borders migration policies, coupled with the European Union’s policies, (also situated in Brussels, Belgium’s capitol), continue to have catastrophic effects on the country’s safety and demographics.

According to Statbel, the country’s statistical office, in 2020 the most popular names for male babies in over a dozen municipalities throughout Brussels are Islamic, specifically Mohamed, Mohammed, and Ahmed (another form of Mohammad). This name prevalence is the case in the municipalities of Saint-Gilles, Molenbeek, Anderlecht, Schaerbeek, Koekelberg, Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode, Forest, Jette, Berchem Sainte-Agathe, Evere, Ganshoren, and Saint-Gilles, and the city of Brussels.

These newest statistics come just weeks after the government announced that one third of Belgium’s population is now of foreign origin. The largest number of those being of Moroccan descent. Ninety-nine percent of Morocco’s population are Muslims. In Brussels, native or indigenous Belgians are already in the minority, nearly 80% of the population is of foreign origin.

Belgium has become a terrorist breeding ground, the country has the highest per-capita rate of foreign fighters of any Western European country. The small country has even been described by left-wing media as “Europe’s terror hotbed”.

Following information is from Statbel, and French news site Fdesouche:

City of Brussels: 185,100 inhabitants

 

Molenbeek: 98,000 inhabitants.

Anderlecht: 120,000 inhabitants.

Schaerbeek: 132,800 inhabitants.

Koekelberg: 21,959 inhabitants.

Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode: 27,497 inhabitants.

Forest: 56,581 inhabitants.

Jette: 52,728 inhabitants.

Berchem Sainte-Agathe: 25,500 inhabitants.

Evere: 42,650 inhabitants.

Ganshoren: 25,234 inhabitants.

Saint-Gilles: 49,678 inhabitants.

THE ULTRA-LIBERAL, THEOLOGICALLY EDUCATED, DELAWARE SENATOR Coons: ‘We Need to Spend Months and Months’ on a 9/11-Style Commission on Capitol Hill Riots

BY PAM KEY

SEE: https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2021/02/14/coons-we-need-to-spend-months-and-months-on-a-9-11-style-commission-on-deadly-riots/;

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

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the Democrats need to “spend months and months unearthing all the evidence that can possibly be gotten to through a 9/11-style commission” on the Capitol Hill riots.

Partial transcript as follows:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Senator Coons, you just heard Congresswoman Dean right there on the necessity of a 9/11 Commission. You agree?

COONS: I do. George, this was a remarkable week. A powerful week. And I think the House managers, obviously Congresswoman Dean and Congressman Raskin and a very talented team put on an incredibly compelling and powerful case. But there’s still more evidence that the American people need and deserve to hear and a 9/11 Commission is a way to make sure that we secure the Capitol going forward and that we lay bare the record of just how responsible and how abjectly violating of his constitutional oath President Trump really was.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So there is more to learn. And you played a key role in working out the compromise accepted by the House managers on witnesses.

Walk us through the argument you made and what was going on in those couple of hours of confusion yesterday morning on the Senate floor.

COONS: Well, a number of senators promptly started talking to each other about what was the path forward with the unexpected request by the House managers for additional witnesses. And as lead manager Jamie Raskin recognized right after the trial, they could have had 500 more witnesses, it wasn’t going to change the outcome. Once Mitch McConnell made it clear he intended to acquit, even despite the compelling evidence, what the House managers needed wasn’t more witnesses or more evidence. What we all needed was more Republican courage.

I am grateful to Dr. Cassidy and the seven Republicans who joined with every Democrat in voting to convict President Trump. This was the most bipartisan verdict in American history, a strong rebuke to President Trump. But, frankly at the end of the day, the trial had reached its natural conclusion and I’m grateful for the terrific work the House managers did.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So you wouldn’t — you don’t believe that a full trial, more witnesses, more documents giving a sense of what was going on inside the White House, would have better serve the cause of justice and accountability?

COONS: I do think that we need to spend months and months unearthing all the evidence that can possibly be gotten to through a 9/11-style commission. I, frankly, at that time did not think that spending months fighting over additional witnesses would have changed the outcome of this trial one bit. And the House managers agreed. Many senators were making that point that they had as many votes on the Republican side as were possible to get. Frankly, they got more than even I expected given if you look back a year, the impeachment trial of President Trump that happened a year ago, only one Republican voted to convict.

N.Y. Governor Cuomo blames ‘disinformation’ and ‘toxic political environment’ for COVID nursing home deaths scandal

"This past year, there is a toxic political environment," he said, "and everything gets politicized. And there's political spin, and there are facts, two very different

BY JAMES ANTHONY

SEE: https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-gov-cuomo-blames-staff-disinformation-and-toxic-political-environment;

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

NY State Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke to the press on Monday and blamed the "toxic political environment" for the nursing home deaths cover-up, saying that he wanted to get the "facts" straight regarding the nursing home scandal in his state.

"This past year, there is a toxic political environment," he said, "and everything gets politicized. And there's political spin, and there are facts, two very different things. I just want to make sure people have facts."

New York State Attorney General Letitia James launched an investigation into the nursing home deaths in New York state, finding that the state drastically underreported the number of dead in nursing homes, but up to 50 percent.

A top Cuomo staffer then said that the deaths were intentionally obfuscated so that there wouldn't be an issue with regard to that undercount. On Monday, Cuomo was asked to account for this, and to take responsibility for these acts of his administration.

Cuomo said that the New York State Department of Health has always fully and publicly reported all COVID deaths in nursing homes and hospitals, saying that they have always been fully reported.

Cuomo said that "nationwide, 36 percent of the [COVID] deaths are in the nursing homes." A recording of his top aide was released on Thursday, where she said that they had withheld data from federal authorities.

"Last August," Cuomo said, "DOJ sent a letter to Democratic governors, four of them, NY, NJ, MI, PA... asking for information on public nursing homes. NY state legislature also sent a letter asking for information on nursing homes."

"We paused the State Legislature's request while we were finishing the DOJ request. We told both houses, the Assembly and the Senate, that we had [a] DOJ request for information, and we were prioritizing that. We did give the DOJ request precedence."

No word was forthcoming on Cuomo's part about why the two requests couldn't have been handled at the same time, since it was essentially the same information being requested by both parties.

Cuomo claimed that "there is much distortion around what is called the Department of Health memo on March 25th and I want to make sure that we get the facts on this."

On the subject of patients being moved back to nursing homes after being treated in hospitals, Cuomo said that "On March 23, the Center for Disease Control, CDC, put out guidance for people sending people from hospitals back to nursing homes. NYS DOH followed that guidance. Twelve other states, at least, followed that guidance."

Cuomo pointed out that there was a "void," for which he took responsibility, saying that the "void begets disinformation," and that disinformation results in pain of individuals.

Cuomo said "People died alone. It was horrific. And then the void in information we created started misinformation, disinformation, conspiracy theories... The truth is everybody did everything they could."

The beleaguered governor has his hands full these days, with people calling for his resignation, and for criminal investigations to be launched.

The Sins of Cuomo-A deadly cover-up and executive order

EXCERPTS: 

Clearer evidence of a coverup has come out since the release of New York Attorney General James’ report. The Associated Press reported on February 12th that, according to new records it had examined, “More than 9,000 recovering coronavirus patients in New York State were released from hospitals into nursing homes early in the pandemic under a controversial directive that was scrapped amid criticism it accelerated outbreaks.” This appalling number “is more than 40% higher than what the state health department previously released,” according to the Associated Press report. 

Even more shocking, Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa let the cat out of the bag during a video conference call with Democrat state legislators. As heard on an audio recording of the call leaked to the press, DeRosa admitted that the Cuomo administration had withheld the state’s true nursing home death toll from legislators who had requested the data last August. In reconstructing the Cuomo administration’s scrambling to hide the truth at the time, DeRosa told the Democrat legislators that then-President Trump had directed “the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us. And basically, we froze.

Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik minced no words in demanding prosecutions. “Governor Cuomo, the secretary to the governor, and his senior team must be prosecuted immediately – both by the Attorney General of New York State and the U.S. Department of Justice,” Rep. Stefanik said. “This bombshell admission of a coverup and the remarks by the Secretary to the Governor indicating intent to obstruct any federal investigation is a stunning and criminal abuse of power. The families who lost loved ones, New Yorkers, and all Americans deserve accountability from the U.S. Department of Justice that will be independent and not swayed by the desperate political pressure from Governor Cuomo.”

 

WHO COVID ‘Investigator’ Is Chinese CDC Adviser Who Accepted CCP Research Grants.

Marion Koopmans, a member of the recent World Health Organization mission to discover the origins of COVID-19 in China, has served as an advisor to the Chinese Communist Party’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention and authored studies funded by Chinese government-backed grants, The National Pulse can reveal.

The World Health Organization (WHO) delegation concluded that it was “extremely unlikely” the virus came from a Chinese Communist Party lab despite reports showing China refused to share all relevant data to the early days of COVID-19.

But Koopman’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party, which resemble a similar relationship to fellow WHO researcher Peter Daszak, call into question the validity of the team’s findings.

A document entitled “Scientific Advisory Group members” from the World Health Organization (WHO) contains Koopman’s professional bio, which reveals she has served as a “member of the scientific advisory board of the Centres for Disease Control of Guangdong China“:

As member of the scientific advisory board of the Centres for Disease control of Guangdong China, she has advised on the building of the laboratory capacity for emerging infectious disease detection in this region, and has ongoing research collaborations trying to unravel emergence and spread of viruses through the animal production chain in this region.

KOOPMAN’S BIO

Koopmans also lists the affiliation on her own LinkedIn.

What’s more, Koopmans has authored scientific research papers and journal articles backed by Chinese Communist Party grants.

A July 2020 study – Exploring utility of genomic epidemiology to trace origins of highly pathogenic influenza A/H7N9 in Guangdong – was “supported by grants from National Key Research and Development Program of China [and] the National Key Research and Development Program of China.”

“We thank the twenty-one collaborating laboratories in Guangdong province that participated in the longitudinal surveillance,” a summary adds.

Another 2017 study focusing on Zika virus was also funded and executed by the Guangdong provincial government, according to a summary:

We thank all of the related laboratory and administrative personnel at Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Jiangmen Center for Disease Control and Prevention for their contribution to the follow-up investigation. The present study was supported by grants from the Guangdong Provincial Science and Technology ProgrammA and the National Key Development Program.

And another Koopman-led 2014 study done alongside Guangdong Provincial CDC researchers on Influenza A(H7N9) was “supported by 12th five-year-major projects of China’s Ministry of Public Health.”Koopmans has also authored a host of studies financially backed by the state-run China Scholarship Council including reports on Norovirus, RotavirusCalcineurin, and migration.

The latest revelations are sure to force a further rowing back by the establishment media of the previously lauded investigative group.

Report: Liars, cheaters, and scammers have stolen more than $100 billion of coronavirus aid

According to federal law enforcement officials, the fraud is deeply complex and will take months to fully account for

BY CHRIS PANDOLFO

Waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer money in the coronavirus relief package Congress passed last year have reached "staggering" levels, to an extent not fully known but estimated to be more than $100 billion, according to a report from NBC News.

Last year, while the American people were in the full grip of economic hardship imposed on them by the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States Congress passed a $2 trillion spending bill to provide economic relief. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act, was intended to give needed aid to 17 million unemployed people, help small businesses survive, and provide stimulus checks for every nearly American.

But liars, cheaters, and scammers have swindled billions of dollars from the U.S. government, stealing money from taxpayers and depriving people in need of the economic relief Congress appropriated for them during the pandemic.

"The Labor Department inspector general has yet to complete a full investigation but, based on previous programs, estimates at least $63 billion of the $630 billion in disbursements has been misspent," NBC News reported Saturday. "The full scope of the loss in taxpayer funds is likely many times higher, experts and officials say, soaring well beyond $100 billion."

In California, one fraud scheme disrupted by police cost taxpayers an estimated $11 million. Police say a social services business charged non-qualifying individuals $700 each to file false unemployment claims.

"This isn't just an Orange County problem. It isn't just a California problem," Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said. "This is a breakdown of catastrophic proportions that has failed the American taxpayer."

California is currently conducting a review of its COVID-19 relief program and estimates that fraud may have cost taxpayers as much as $30 billion, or 27% of relief spending. In Nebraska, an audit of unemployment benefit spending found that about 66% of payments made last June were misspent. Many states have not reviewed their coronavirus relief spending, so the total amount of fraud nationwide remains difficult to quantify, but nevertheless massive.

"In California, this is unquestionably the largest fraud against public agencies in our history," Vern Pierson, president of the California District Attorneys Association, said. "Increasingly we are learning there could be fraud of historic proportions nationwide. While we don't know the exact price tag, we know the amount of the loss of taxpayers is staggering."

Law enforcement experts interviewed by NBC News described how the federal government relied on state agencies to distribute coronavirus relief funds, despite warnings that these agencies were ill-equipped to deal with con artists and other criminal organizations.

For example, one new program flagged by the Labor Department as "high risk," the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, was intended to help gig workers, caregivers, and self-employed people collect unemployment insurance. These workers typically don't qualify for federal unemployment insurance, but Congress mandated that coronavirus relief be made available to them. So state agencies had to rely on self-reported work history to determine who qualified to claim unemployment checks. Facing a "crushing" volume of claims made and political pressure to get people coronavirus relief, states also relaxed oversight on spending. An auditor in Kentucky reportedly found that the program's oversight was so weakened that the state actually violated federal law.

Criminals obviously exploited the program, and the full extent of widespread fraud is currently unknown and being investigated by several state governments. The most prolific fraudsters appear to be transnational organized crime rings located in West Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe, law enforcement officials told NBC News.

The U.S. Department of Justice has created a task force to investigate fraud nationwide. According to the DOJ, more than 100 defendants have been charged across 71 cases related to CARES Act unemployment fraud. NBC reports federal law enforcement has seized or frozen $65 million, about half of the losses associated with the crimes.

In December, months after the CARES Act was passed, Congress finally required states to verify the identity of unemployment claimants. ID.me, a company contracted with 21 states to combat the "veritable tsunami" of fraud, told NBC News the criminal activity facing states is a "national crisis."

ID.me said that in about 20% of the fraudulent claims, identity thieves use Social Security numbers and other personal information stolen in data breaches. Another 10% of fraud schemes are "social engineering" scams where criminals convince a victim to share personal data or cooperate in fraud by posing as potential employers or even government officials. Some thieves have used computer-generated 3D-printed masks of victims' faces to pass identity verification checks.

The fraud is so brazen that criminals have stolen the identities of high-profile political figures like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R), and Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul.

Millions of Americans who have received 1099 tax forms from the IRS without receiving benefits may be victims of fraud.

In a statement, the Labor Department told NBC News: "We are working on a comprehensive approach to partnering with states to minimize fraud, waste and abuse, while making sure Americans who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own are able to receive the benefits they deserve and desperately need."

Biden’s handlers kill pipelines at home but promote them for the Taliban

It is indeed Obama’s third term, as we have returned to his practice of rewarding America’s enemies and alienating America’s friends.

This is interesting: “The government has apparently brokered a meeting between the Turkmenistan government and the Taliban for a trans-Afghanistan pipeline to bring Turkmen gas across Afghanistan and Pakistan to India. If this scheme sounds familiar, it should: It was the same deal that now-Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad sought to make with the Taliban in the years before the Sept. 11 terror attacks when he was a consultant for the Unocal Corporation.”

How much does Unocal pay Khalilzad? Does he have a personal financial stake in this pipeline project? Does Biden and/or his family?

“Biden kills pipelines at home but promotes them for the Taliban,” by Michael Rubin, Washington Examiner, February 8, 2021 (thanks to the Geller Report):

On his first day in office, President Biden canceled permits for the Keystone XL pipeline. Environmentalists and anti-fossil fuel activists should not have applauded his move.

After all, Canada will not stop extracting oil from the tar sands of northern Alberta. Instead, it will simply export oil over existing pipelines or to the Pacific Ocean, where the damage from a potential spill would be harder to address. Biden’s cancellation cost jobs and pushes Canada toward greater economic cooperation with China. It also shakes confidence in U.S. business. Who would invest in the country if any future administration can simply renege on deals with the stroke of a pen? Especially, that is, when the investments involved here reach into the billions of dollars?

Biden’s move was both political theater and an indulgence of his liberal base. But his hypocrisy was stunning even for a politician who has spent a half-century in Washington. Consider that while the Biden administration is killing a pipeline from which the public could benefit, Biden is promoting a pipeline to enrich both one of the world’s worst dictatorships and a group responsible for thousands of U.S. deaths.

The government has apparently brokered a meeting between the Turkmenistan government and the Taliban for a trans-Afghanistan pipeline to bring Turkmen gas across Afghanistan and Pakistan to India. If this scheme sounds familiar, it should: It was the same deal that now-Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad sought to make with the Taliban in the years before the Sept. 11 terror attacks when he was a consultant for the Unocal Corporation.

Khalilzad’s scheme was bad policy two decades ago, and it is even worse now.

Put aside environmental arguments and consider profit. Freedom House’s latest Freedom in the World report ranks Turkmenistan as among the world’s worst offenders, below even North Korea in terms of freedom and civil liberties. To promote the export of Turkmen gas is to entrench its regime even further. Part of the deal is then paying the Taliban protection money or transit fees for the pipeline transiting Afghan territory. Not only would this undermine the elected Afghanistan government even further, but it would also reward the Taliban for insurgency to the tune of tens of millions of dollars each month. Who needs Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers when the State Department has crafted a scheme to reward the Taliban beyond their wildest dreams?…

Sneak attack in Neuchâtel. A Swiss woman was sprayed with acid in the underground car park of her apartment. She was first brought to the hospital in Neuchâtel by the emergency services. She then went to the Chuv University Hospital in Lausanne.

The act happened on Thursday morning at 7.53 a.m. at 53 Rue de L’Evole, as the Neuchâtel canton police wrote in a message.

The victim is model Elise T.* (24). “She is a wonderful person,” says a neighbor to lematin.ch. “A lovely girl, very pretty.” A few years ago Elise took part in a beauty contest in western Switzerland.

Neighbor reacted immediately

The woman was first looked after by a neighbor who was startled by the cries for help. The neighbor showered the woman with copious amounts of water while they waited for professional help.

The 24-year-old is not in mortal danger.

Successful major effort

Three hours after the incident, a 19-year-old man living in the region was arrested in the La Maladière district thanks to a large-scale operation. He is in custody.

The suspect is a refugee from Afghanistan, as Georges-André Lozouet, spokesman for the canton police in Neuchâtel, explains at the request of VIEW.

“Athletic” man with a mask or balaclava

“At the moment, I cannot say whether the suspect and the victim know each other and how they relate to one another,” Lozouet continues. “I can’t say anything about the motive either.”

Five people have been seriously injured in acid attacks in London. The picture shows one of the crime scenes in London. According to the police, there is a link between the five attacks.

The police are looking for witnesses who made suspicious observations on Thursday morning in the area of ​​Rue de L’Evole and the Esplanade du Mont-Blanc in connection with an “athletic” man about 170 cm tall with a black mask or balaclava.

Prosecutor Sylvie Favre has initiated criminal proceedings. (noo)

‘That’s Not Enough for You?!’ Trump Attorney Goes Apoplectic on ‘Slanted Media’ With Clueless CBS Interviewer

God bless him. Trump impeachment Part Deux attorney Michael T. van der Veen is just the latest civilian to walk into Trump World and walk out shaking his head, mouth agape, with fire coming out of his ears at his and his client’s treatment by the Democrats in the media.

What used to be in – it’s OK that Attorney General Eric Holder’s law firm defended GITMO terrorists, somebody’s got to do that. Don’t hate the player, hate the game, brah – has been replaced with ‘Trump doesn’t deserve representation because he’s so vile. Period. So there.’

Trump went through at least five attorneys in the run-up to the impeachment trial. Some flat chickened out. Others couldn’t do it. Others were threatened with bad media coverage. All left the president in the lurch. If you ever need representation, you might steer clear of law firms that leave a historic case right before trial due to a screaming case of Trump Derangement Syndrome and a case of the willies.

After a whopping two weeks to prepare for the historic second impeachment trial and getting the Democrats’ evidence after he started arguing the case, the tough-guy lawyer from “Philly-delphia” wrapped up the case with his co-counsel and, as expected, got an acquittal.

Van der Veen said that during the time he worked on the case, his house was trashed by Leftist rabble, his law firm was being swarmed by antifa-like nutballs, his life had been threatened no fewer than 100 times. He put up with a last-minute, hail-Mary Democrat attempt to put on surprise witnesses.

And then came the sanctimonious news reporter who asked questions, mischaracterized the evidence, and then talked over him while he tried to answer.

By the time CBS News reporter Lana Zak’s interview with the Trump lawyer ended (see the tweet below), van der Veen had reached his limit of hypocrisy. He was done. Zak’s cavalier attitude about “doctored evidence” by the Democrat House impeachment managers and the media’s “slanted” coverage of it was more than he could take.

“To be clear for our viewers,” she interrupted him, “what you’re talking about is a checkmark, a verification, on Twitter that did not exist on that particular tweet, a 2020 that should have actually read 2021, and the selective editing, you say, of the tapes.”

Van der Veen had heard enough. He flooded the torpedos and began acquiring targets.

“Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait,’ van der Veen cut in. ‘That’s not enough for you?’

She protested that she’d never said that, but her questioning and attitude were all you needed to see to become convinced otherwise.

She then continually interrupted his answers by saying she was only doing so “to be clear for our viewers.” RealClear Politics provides the transcript:

‘It’s not OK to doctor a ‘little bit’ of evidence,” he said. “Respectfully, ma’am your question is turned. The media has to start telling the right story in this country,’ he said. ‘The media is trying to divide this country. You are bloodthirsty for ratings, and as such you are asking questions now that are already set up with a fact pattern. I can’t believe you would ask me a question indicating that is is alright to doctor just a little bit of evidence… We won this case.”

Maybe it’s just me, but crosstalk and attempting to drown out a guest with a pedantic chant of trying “to be clear for our viewers” doesn’t clarify anything, either.

Finally, someone on her computer screen or IFB told her to shut up and let the man speak. Did he ever.

Your coverage is so slanted it’s got to stop. You guys have to stop and start reporting more like PBS does rather than a TV news show that doesn’t have any journalistic integrity at all. I’m tired of the biased media on both sides – left and right. What this country wants, what this country needs is this country to come together. To take the left and the right and find a middle ground.

I was struck by a tweet I saw in my timeline that was right next to the video of this exchange.

It reads, “Never waste your breath explaining to a fool; he won’t accept your wisdom & will just make fun of you. Prov 23:9”

As so many in Trump World have learned—Ivanka and Jared come to mind—it doesn’t matter what you say or do. You could move a mountain to Mohammed and magic-up four Middle Eastern peace treaties and still be tortured by the Democrat media.

Trump lawyer Michael T. van der Veen just got his turn inside Trump World’s treatment by the Democrats and media.

And he was disgusted. At the end of the interview, he ripped off his microphone and threw it down.

Social media platform Parler announced that it will be resuming operations under new leadership after a month of being kicked off of its Amazon-based web servers in January following the January 6 events on Capitol Hill.

Jack Posobiec tweeted that the social media platform will be back online today.

The site has reportedly moved to a new server farm that will allow it to operate without big tech interference. The site also dropped CEO John Matze and will be moving forward with Mark Meckler, at least for the time being.

Meckler confirmed to Just The News that Parler's 20 million users will have full access to the site within the next day, with new users being able to sign up within a week or so.

Meckler's role will include guidance through the app's relaunch while they search for a new and permanent CEO.
