Donald Trump is expanding his 2017 executive order that built on the nation’s “Mexico City Policy” to cut off more streams of revenue from international organizations providing or promoting abortions overseas.

Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers were prevented from accessing hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer funds. And the proposal to expand the order could lead to even more cuts to their funding.

Life News:

According to the Catholic News Agency, the proposal expands the Mexico City Policy to include military and government contracts overseas.

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised the Trump administration for “boldly defending life” across the world.

“From day one, they have championed innovative policies to protect unborn children and their mothers, as well as taxpayers,” Dannenfelser said. “This new proposed rule builds on that success, further preventing the big abortion industry from exporting abortion on demand around the world on American taxpayers’ dime.”

President Ronald Reagan’s original Mexico City Policy affected about $600 million in USAID grants. Trump’s expansion of the policy will be global in reach.

Catholic News:

The expanded Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy covers nearly $9 billion in U.S. foreign aid under the State Department, USAID, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Defense. This includes, for example, grants to foreign NGOs under international health programs to fight AIDS and infectious diseases, or to provide maternal and child nutrition.

Pro-abortion groups are not pleased. Planned Parenthood tweeted on Monday about the “unprecedented expansion of a harmful policy.”

The expanded rule would “require all groups that receive global health aid contracts to agree not to promote and/or provide elective abortions.” Those that do will not receive taxpayer funds.

When Trump first proposed the rule in 2017, Planned Parenthood warned of an unmitigated disaster with “gaps” in health care coverage in the Third World. But a state department report published earlier this year disputes that idea. They found very few gaps were created and those that were were filled by governments or private donations.

Life News:

Just eight of the 1,340 groups that received U.S. aid money under the Obama administration refused to comply with Trump’s new pro-life policy, according to the report. An additional 47 sub-awardees also refused to comply, the report found.

“Principled pro-life policies can exist hand and hand with … quality health care,” a Trump administration official told reporters.

The few, limited health care disruptions were due to Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups’ own decision to refuse to comply with the policy. In doing so, they placed the killing of unborn babies in abortions at a higher priority than real, life-saving health care for impoverished women and families across the globe.

If Planned Parenthood wants to save the Third World by killing babies, it can use part of its billion-dollar budget not funded by U.S. taxpayers to do it.

Trump Administration Seeks to Further Restrict International Abortion Funding

BY JAMES MURPHY

The Trump administration signaled on Monday that it wishes to further restrict federal funds going to international abortion providers. A proposed new rule would require foreign entities that receive aid through contracts with the U.S. Government to agree not to provide or promote abortion as a family-planning method.

The proposed legislation is an expansion of the “Mexico City Policy,” which blocks federal funding for international NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) that either promote or provide abortions. First enacted by Ronald Reagan in 1984, the Mexico City Policy has been a political seesaw ever since. Since it is an executive order, it can be rescinded when another president takes office. Bill Clinton rescinded the rule in 1993, George W. Bush re-instituted it in 2001 and Barack Obama again rescinded it in 2009.

Called a “global gag rule” by opponents, Donald Trump re-instituted the protocol in 2017 and now looks to expand upon it by including international groups that receive funding — even through military and government contracts — to agree not to promote or provide elective abortions. The new rule would deny funding for any global health organization — even those that don't specialize in family planning — if they provide or counsel for abortions.

The protocol changes, dubbed Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA), can be read in the Federal Register.

Pro-life groups were ecstatic about the proposed rule change. “We thank President Trump and Secretary Pompeo for boldly defending life on the world stage. From day one they have championed initiative policies to protect unborn children and their mothers, as well as taxpayers,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List. “This new proposed rule builds on that success, further preventing the big abortion industry from exporting abortion on demand around the world on American taxpayers' dime.”

Opponents of the rule change argue that because of the abortion restrictions, groups that offer other services such as HIV treatment, family planning, tuberculosis testing and treatment, and maternal and child nutrition services have already been adversely affected by the Mexico City Policy.

“This administration is fully aware that the global gag rule is coercive and demonstrably hurts women and families worldwide,” read a statement from Zara Ahmed, the associate director of Federal Issues for the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion think tank.

“By choosing to expand it even further, they are intentionally depriving people of live-saving and essential reproductive healthcare all over the globe in service of a manipulative ideological agenda.”

Planned Parenthood Global called the new rule “yet another unprecedented expansion of a harmful policy.”

But a State Department report issued in August found that the effect on the vast majority of health service grants issued by the government would be negligible since most participants agreed to the requirements.

“The majority of foreign NGOs that receive US global health assistance funding have accepted the terms of PLGHA in their awards. In total, only eight out of 1,340 prime awardees with awards in place between May 2017 and September 30, 2018, have declined to agree to the Policy, as well as a small portion of sub-awardees.”

So, it's simple. Just stop providing and promoting abortions and the NGOs can have taxpayer money to treat whatever disease or malady that they're willing and able to treat.  Any NGO that refuses to comply with the rule is choosing abortion over all those other services that they claim are necessary.

What the Mexico City Policy really hurts is only the abortion industry. Because of the policy International Planned Parenthood Federation was forced to close 22 abortion mills in sub-Saharan Africa as of 2018. British abortion provider Marie Stopes International was also forced to shut down several African facilities.

The proposed new rule is just another small, incremental step in the battle to rid the world of the scourge of abortion. As soon as a Democrat gets back into the White House, the Mexico City Policy will almost certainly be rescinded quickly. But it's another signal that President Trump — whose views on abortion were admittedly shaky before taking office — has become possibly the most pro-life president of the modern era.

 

 

 

POLLS FIND MANY DO NOT WANT COVID VACCINES

Polls Find Many Americans Do Not Want COVID-19 Vaccine as Soon as It’s Licensed

BY KATE RAINES

SEE: https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/09/polls-find-many-americans-do-not-want-covid-19-vaccine-as-soon-as-its-licensed/;

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • More adults in the U.S. are expressing doubts about the safety of a newly licensed COVID-19 vaccine that might become available this year.
  • The number of poll respondents planning on getting a new coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is FDA approved has fallen from a reported high of 50 to 60 percent down to 21 percent currently.
  • Reduced trust in the fast-tracked vaccine process mirrors generally reduced trust in COVID-19 information being disseminated by public health officials and mainstream media.

As medical doctors and government health officials warn that there can be no return to normal until we have an effective COVID-19 vaccine that everyone uses, more and more Americans are expressing skepticism about accepting a newly licensed coronavirus vaccine that has been rushed through the approval process. In a poll of 2,493 registered U.S. voters across the country conducted on behalf of CBS News, only 21 percent of voters are still saying they would get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as one becomes available, even if it is free.1

That same poll showed that two thirds of voters say they would not consider a vaccine made available this year as a scientific breakthrough (65 percent) but rather as one that had been “rushed through without enough testing” (35 percent). Among those who feel the vaccine testing has been rushed, only 13 percent say they would get the vaccine as soon as it was available.

Decreasing Trust in Fast-Tracked Vaccine Safety

The number of Americans willing to get a new vaccine against COVID-19 has been falling since polling began. In April/May, a poll of 1,056 adults conducted by the Associated Press’s NORC Center for Public Affairs Research showed that 49 percent said they planned to get vaccinated as soon as a vaccine was licensed, 20 per cent said they would not get the new vaccine and 31 percent were unsure.2 Morning Consult poll numbers from May showed an even higher number of respondents planning to get a new vaccine: 59 percent among 2,200 surveys of U.S. adults, with 14 percent saying they would not want the vaccine and 22 percent unsure.3 4

By late July, polls showed the number of people who would accept a newly licensed COVID-19 vaccine had dropped to 32 percent, with 17 percent against taking any coronavirus vaccine approved this year and 51 percent taking a “wait and see” stance.5 Most of those who have expressed reluctance about getting a new COVID-19 vaccine are concerned about safety and side effects, while others are uncertain a vaccine would be effective in protecting them from the mutated coronavirus.6

Polls results seem to indicate that there are divisions within political parties, with more registered Democrats viewing a new vaccine as being inappropriately rushed to market (77 percent) rather than a scientific achievement (23 percent) compared to Republicans (48 and 52 percent, respectively). Though more Republicans than Democrats plan to get the vaccine if one becomes available, most plan to wait or forego the vaccine altogether.7

Trust in Public Health Information Also on the Decline

That same CBS poll shows that voters as a whole have less trust in the coronavirus information provided by public health authorities, such as officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the President of the United States, state governors and the national media, compared to opinions reported earlier in the pandemic.8 Most dramatically, trust in the CDC to provide accurate information about COVID-19 has fallen from a high of 86 percent in March to 54 percent today.9

Also since March, trust in information provided by the national media has fallen from 45 percent to 35 percent currently. Trust in information disseminated by state governors has also fallen by 14 percentage points.10

Regardless of party, the majority of voters—65 percent of Republicans, 84 percent of Democrats and 76 percent of Independents—agree that whomever is elected president should publicly be vaccinated to demonstrate confidence in the safety of a new COVID-19 vaccine recommended by the government.11

NOVAVAXS VACCINE CAUSED SEVERE ADVERSE REACTIONS

Novavax’s Adjuvanted COVID-19 Vaccine Caused Severe Adverse Reactions in Clinical Trials

BY MARCO CACERES

Biotechnology company Novavax, Inc. of Gaithersburg, Maryland recently made public the results of the Phase 1 part of a Phase 1/2 human clinical trial for its experimental NVX-CoV2373 vaccine for COVID-19. According to Novavax, “NVX‑CoV2373 was created using Novavax’s recombinant nanoparticle technology to generate antigen derived from the coronavirus spike (S) protein and contains Novavax’s patented saponin-based Matrix-M™ adjuvant to enhance the immune response and stimulate high levels of neutralizing antibodies.”1

The clinical trial involved 131 healthy adults between 18-59 years of age. The results were published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) on Sept. 2, 2020.2

Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine Contains Strong Saponin-Based Adjuvant

Of the 131 participants in the clinical trial,, which began on May 26, 2020, 83 were given the NVX-CoV2373 vaccine containing the Matrix-M1 adjuvant to help stimulate an immune response to produce a strong antibody response. Matrix-M1 contains nm (nanometers) of nanoparticles composed of Quillaja saponins, cholesterol and phospholipid. Quillaja saponins are chemical compounds extracted from the soapbox tree. They are used by the food industry as “emulsifiers in beverages and food additives.”2 3 4 5 6

In the cosmetics industry, Quillaja saponins (from the Latin “sapo,” meaning soap) are used as “antidandruff, cleansing, emulsifying, foaming, masking, moisturizing, skin conditioning, and surfactant agents.”6

Of the remaining trial participants, 25 were given the NVX-CoV2373 vaccine without the Matrix-M1 adjuvant and 23 participants were given a placebo of sterile 0.9 percent normal saline. Each participant received two intrasmuscular injections in the deltoid muscle. The injections were given three weeks apart.2

Trial participants were divided into five group: group A, group B, group C, group D and group E. The 23 participants in group A received two doses of the placebo; 25 participants in group B received 25-μg (microgram) doses of the NVX-CoV2373 vaccine without the Matrix-M1 adjuvant; 29 participants in group C received 5-μg doses of NVX-CoV2373 with Matrix-M1; 28 participants in group D received 25-μg doses of NVX-CoV2373 with Matrix-M1; and 26 participants in group E received a single 25-μg dose of NVX-CoV2373 with Matrix-M1 followed by a single dose of placebo.2

Severe Adverse Events Occurred in Novavax’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Trials

According to the results of the clinical trial, two of the 83 participants (one each in groups D and E) suffered “severe adverse events” (headache, fatigue and malaise) after the first dose. Two participants—one each in groups A and E—had “reactogenicity events” (fatigue, malaise and tenderness). A reactogenicity event is an “expected” adverse event following vaccination.7 8

Following administration of the second dose, one participant in group D had a “severe local event” (tenderness) and eight participants—one or two in each group—had “severe systemic events.” The most common of these severe systemic events were joint pain and fatigue. One participant in group D developed a fever of 100.58°F.2

ASTRA-ZENECA HALTS, THEN RESUMES COVID-19 VACCINE TRIAL AFTER SERIOUS NEUROLOGICAL EVENT~NO PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

BY BARBARA CACERES

SEE: https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/09/astrazeneca-halts-resumes-covid-19-vaccine-trial-after-serious-neurological-event/;

News update, Sept. 15, 2020—U.S. regulators paused AstraZeneca’s vaccine trial in the U.S. while the National Institutes of Health (NIH) launches an investigation of its own into a serious side effect in an unnamed patient in Britain. “The highest levels of NIH are very concerned,” said Dr. Avindra Nath, intramural clinical director and a leader of viral research at the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, an NIH division. A great deal of uncertainty remains about what happened to the patient. AstraZeneca “need[s] to be more forthcoming with a potential complication of a vaccine which will eventually be given to millions of people,” said Dr. Nath. “We would like to see how we can help, but the lack of information makes it difficult to do so.”19 Enrollment of new patients and other trial procedures were being rescheduled until at least midweek although studies might take a month or two. The status of the South African and Indian trials remains unknown, but the trial in Brazil has also restarted.20

Multinational pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca announced on Sept. 8, 2020 that it was putting a hold on a Phase 3 clinical trial testing its experimental AZD1222 (ChAdOx1 nCoV-19) COVID-19 vaccine due to a suspected very serious adverse reaction in a female participant in the United Kingdom.1 In a private conference call on Sept. 9, AstraZeneca chief executive Pascal Soriot stated that the woman suffered symptoms consistent with a rare but serious neurological disorder called transverse myelitis, which causes inflammation of the spinal cord.2

Soriot also confirmed that the participant was injected with the company’s COVID-19 vaccine and not a placebo. Four days later, AstraZeneca released a statement3 that the trial in the U.K. would resume following confirmation by the Medicines Health Regulatory Authority (MHRA) (Britain’s equivalent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) that it was safe to do so. They provided no further details.  Researchers running other clinical trials are now looking for similar cases of neurological reactions by combing through databases.4

“What we have here is a special set of circumstances where the whole world becomes involved in the conduct of a clinical trial,” Soriot said. “The reality is we all have to be very patient and see how it unfolds.”5

Another AstaZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Participant Developed Multiple Sclerosis

AstraZeneca’s public statements about the temporary pause in its COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial contain few details, and drug company officials will not publicly confirm that this is the second time it has stopped trials to investigate potential adverse health events occurring among participants.6 A woman in the U.K. trial was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in July, but the company said that serious adverse event, which triggered the first clinical trial pause, was not related to the vaccine.7

AstraZeneca’s clinical trial is the first Phase 3 COVID-19 vaccine trial publicly acknowledged to have been put on hold. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), such holds are not uncommon. Francis Collins, MD, director of the NIH, told a U.S. Senate panel last week:

To have a clinical hold, as has been placed on AstraZeneca as of yesterday, because of a single serious adverse event is not at all unprecedented. This certainly happens in any large-scale trial where you have tens of thousands of people invested in taking part, some of them may get ill and you always have to try to figure out: Is that because of the vaccine, or were they going to get that illness anyway?8

AstraZeneca Seeks 30,000 Participants for U.S. Phase 3 Trial

In April, Oxford University’s Jenner Institute and Oxford Vaccine Group partnered with AstraZeneca to develop, manufacture, and distribute ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, which uses a replication-deficient chimpanzee viral vector based on a weakened version of a common cold virus (adenovirus) that causes infections in chimpanzees and contains the genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 virus spike protein.9

AstraZeneca, which sponsors the clinical trials, began Phase 3 trials in the U.S. in late August. Phase 3 trials confirm and expand the evidence base for safety and efficacy of Phase 1 and 2 trials.  The U.S. trial, which aims to enroll about 30,000 participants, is currently taking place at 62 sites across the country, according to clinicaltrials.gov, a government registry, though some sites have not yet started enrolling participants. Simultaneously conducted Phase 2/3 trials were previously started in the U.K., Brazil, and South Africa.10

Transverse Myelitis Is A Rare But Serious Neurological Disorder

Transverse myelitis involves inflammation of the spinal cord, which carries signals to and from the brain through nerves that extend from each side of the spinal cord and connect to nerves elsewhere in the body. Symptoms of transverse myelitis include pain that can be sharp or blunt and may shoot down arms and legs or wrap around the trunk or chest; sensory problems such as tingling, numbness, pricking, coldness, burning and sensitivity to touch or temperature; weakness in the legs and possibly the arms causing loss of balance, difficulty walking, and loss of function, which may develop into paralysis; bladder and bowel problems such as constipation, incontinence, or frequent need to urinate; and sexual dysfunction. These problems may develop suddenly over a period of hours, or over days or weeks.11

About 1,400 new cases of transverse myelitis are diagnosed each year in the United States. Although some people recover from transverse myelitis with minor or no residual problems, the healing process may take months to years. Others may suffer permanent impairments that affect their ability to perform ordinary tasks of daily living. There is no cure for transverse myelitis.12

A 2018 study published in the journal Neurology, which examined evidence for a causal relationship between transverse myelitis and vaccination, concluded that: “the unbalanced distribution of these cases in the first 6 weeks after vaccination suggests that the association between vaccination and some cases may not be coincidental. Work is in progress to determine association of individual vaccine types with the course of TM.”13

High Percentage of Local and Systemic Side Effects in AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Trial

Preliminary results of the AstraZeneca’s Phase 1 and Phase 2 trials were published in The Lancet14in July 2020. There were 1,077 healthy adults ages 18 to 55, who were randomly given either the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine or the meningococcal conjugate (MenACWY) vaccine. Local and systemic reactions were more common in the trial group given the experimental COVID-19 vaccine, and a portion of both groups received prophylactic paracetamol (acetaminophen) before vaccinations were administered.

Fatigue and headache were the most commonly reported systemic reactions. Fatigue was reported in the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 group by 70 percent of the participants, who were not give paracetamol prior to vaccination, and in the MenACWY group by 48 percent of the participants without paracetamol. Headaches were reported in the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 group by 68 percent of the participants without paracetamol and 61 percent with paracetamol and in the MenACWY group by 41 percent of the participants without paracetamol and 37 percent of the participants with paracetamol.

Other systemic adverse reactions were common in the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine group: muscle ache—60 percent, malaise—61 percent, chills—56 percent, and feeling feverish—51 percent. In the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine group, 18 percent of participants without paracetamol and 16 percent of participants with paracetamol reported a temperature of at least 100.4°F, and two percent of patients without paracetamol had a temperature of at least 102.2°F. In comparison, less than one percent of those receiving MenACWY reported a fever of at least 100.4°F, none of whom were receiving prophylactic paracetamol.

The severity and intensity of local and systemic reactions was highest on the first day after vaccination.

Hold on AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Coincides with Historic Safety Pledge by Vaccine Companies

AstaZeneca put its trial on hold on Sunday, Sept. 6, but it was only made public following a news leak15 late on Tuesday, Sept. 8, the same day as nine pharmaceutical companies, including AstroZeneca, signed an historic pledge “to make the safety and well-being of vaccinated individuals the top priority in development of the first COVID-19 vaccines.”16 According to STAT News, the pledge was “an apparent attempt to provide public reassurance despite the widely held view that the COVID-19 vaccine development process is politically tainted.”17

U.S. Government Commits $1.2 Billion to Buy AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine

In May the U.S. government pledged to commit up to $1.2 billion to AstraZeneca to develop a coronavirus vaccine and to obtain at least 300 million doses of any COVID-19 vaccine the corporation gets licensed in 2020. The arrangement with AstraZeneca is labeled a public-private partnership and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) will provide technology transfers and scaled-up manufacturing.18

ASTRA ZENECA DECISION NOT TO BE TRANSPARENT WITH THE PUBLIC

AstraZeneca Made a Bone-Headed Decision to Not Be Transparent With American Public: Chris Meekins

I wasn’t pleased with what seemed to be some selective disclosure, if that was, in fact, the case. I was 
not on the call. I do own AstraZeneca in the fund for reasons unrelated to the COVID-19 vaccine. 
Ironically, it relates to their current drugs in their pipeline. But one never wants to see selective 
disclosure involved for any client base. 
Having said that, now that we are learning more about this disclosure, about the condition that led to 
the pause of the drug trial, you’ve had experience with vaccine trials before. How worrisome is this… 
for all us, hoping for a vaccine, sooner than later? Well, I think what history shows is that vaccines 
sometimes don’t work.
 

GERMANY: CHILD ABUSE-MOTHER SLAMS SCHOOL ORDER BANNING CHILDREN UNABLE TO WEAR MASKS (WATCH)

Child Abuse: Mother Slams School Order Banning Children Unable to Wear Masks (Watch)

The German government is forcing children in schools across the country to wear compulsory coronavirus face masks. If children are unable to wear the state-mandated mask, even for medical reasons, they are not allowed on school premises.

In the following video (audio-only), a mother speaks out against the order banning her son from attending school without a face mask even though her son has a medical condition that precludes him from doing so.

He’s not allow to set foot on the school premises. He’s no longer able to participate. I find it to be quite alarming that it has come to this. Let me say this clearly: I think this is dangerous.

The mother is not only worried about her child, but also the effects of masks on all children. Her concerns include medical consequences such as lack of oxygen, psychological and mental effects and intellectual development delays.

Many parents are terrified to challenge the state’s totalitarian coronavirus regulations being enforced against children and their families. Not only can failure to comply with mask requirements lead to expulsion from school, but now the state has been granted the power to remove sick children from their parents’ custody and place them in ‘forced isolation’ corona facilities.

Despite German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governments oppressive ordinances, the mother urges people to unite and stand together in protest:

Where are the people who resist? The ones who are going to say: “I’m taking this thing off! Who’s going to forbid me from breathing freely in this country?”

If we do not resist, where will the demands end, asked the mother:

Mandatory vaccines? And the chip that will probably follow that? Where does it end? When do we say, I don’t want my child to live in such a world? We were talking about digitization. In the future will it be my job as a teacher to speak to every student online in their house? With everything under surveillance.”

Watch to the following RAIR translated video (audio-only), of the mother addressing her child’s school board

Read the following RAIR articles on Germany and the coronavirus, ranging from mandatory and forced vaccinations, to politicians warning of the false information being spread by Merkel’s government:

A recording of a mother speaking at a school parents meeting in North Rhine-Westphalia

I would like to say something to you all. [Name] is no longer attending school. I think it is sad, 
because we had a certificate from his doctor stating he can’t wear a mask. Now the school says, 
after the summer break, that he is no longer able to attend school. He’s not allow to set foot 
on the school premises. He’s no longer able to participate. I find it to be quite alarming that 
it has come to this. Let me say this clearly: I think this is dangerous.

If there are any other parents that see this critically and think it is strange that their 
children have to wear a mask for six to eight hours. The entire time. It would be great 
if you contact me, because I think it is time that we start to become active. 

Our children are being made sick by being made to wear these masks. They breath CO2 back in 
constantly, so they are constantly suffering from a lack of oxygen. Of course the body gets 
used to it. They don’t pass out right away, but it means the brain receives less oxygen. 
The muscles also receive less oxygen. It also causes psychological problems, if they 
constantly see masked people. They can’t see the facial expressions of others. When they 
are constantly told to practice social distancing. I wanted to say this clearly and wish 
more parents would take a stand and refuse to allow their children to be placed into 
such conditions.

I think what makes it worse here at this school, more then any other school, is that this 
school has a flag with the pledge: “Responsible for the emotional, cognitive and physical 
well-being of children”. And it is supposed to ensure our children are doing well. 
I had to say that at least. My child will not attend school as long as this ordinance 
is in place, because I don’t want him to get sick from it.

Today I heard from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), after the constant warnings 
circulating about a second lockdown, the second wave, etc. — there isn’t a single 
positive sample of SARS-COV 2. Not one. There’s all this talk about testing, testing, 
testing, Which is just showing that someone might have fragments of the virus, but is healthy,
and that there are many false positive included in the results. So where are all the 
dead people? Where are all the corpses from this pandemic? I keep asking myself that 
the entire time. WHERE ARE THEY!?

I have to ask. I want the truth. No one is talking about this and everyone is just believing it. 
We’re so very obedient. It makes me want to puke. Where are the people who resist? The ones 
who are going to say: “I’m taking this thing off! Who’s going to forbid me from breathing 
freely in this country?” Outside or wherever? In Israel they have to wear masks everywhere! 
I’m going to protest! It’s probably going to happen here too, if we don’t put a stop to it. 
Are we going to do that too? Mandatory vaccines? And the chip that will probably follow that?
Where does it end?

When do we say, I don’t want my child to live in such a world? We were talking about 
digitization. In the future will it be my job as a teacher to speak to every student 
online in their house? With everything under surveillance. 

I don’t want to live like that, and that’s why I am taking a stand against it. I’m a good 
person. I don’t do stupid things. I’m not a right-wing extremist or anything like that. 
I’m fighting for the children, for all of our children.

GERMANY’S CORONA TYRANNY: STUDENT REVEALS TEACHERS FORCE THEM TO WEAR MASKS DESPITE OVERTURNED GERMAN MANDATE (VIDEO)

Schools in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany ended their controversial compulsory mask requirement in schools on August 31, 2020. Although there is no longer a mandate, a students explains teachers are using manipulative methods to force students to wear the Chinese coronavirus masks.

In the following video translated by RAIR Foundation USA, a female student explains the actions teachers are taking to force students to wear masks:

Many thanks to Miss Piggy for the translation:

So, people, since I recently returned to school, yesterday, I could clearly recognize how deceptively the schools operate. Although the mandatory mask requirement in the classroom for schools [in NRW] was overturned, what they are doing now is really clever.

As soon as students enter the classroom, the windows and doors are all opened. All the students are sitting there with, really, every window open. Doors too. There’s an enormous draft. It’s freezing cold.

Then the teacher says, “We’ll close the window when you put your masks on”.

So you have the choice between getting sick because you’re freezing the entire time in school or you put the sh***y mask on. Most comply at that point.

Teachers come into classes saying, “Oh, yes, I know there isn’t a mask requirement, but nevertheless I would ask you to put your masks on so we protect each other.”

Students are being directly manipulated.

I’m talking about students from the age of 19 or 20 years old at vocational schools.

Maybe even 25 years old or whatever. They acquiesce directly.

There are other methods. A teacher is wearing a mask and mumbling.

Teachers who put masks on purposefully mumble behind their masks so that no one can understand.

When the students say they can’t understand, or we can’t understand, the teacher’s ice-cold response is, “That’s your problem.

If you put on your masks, then I’ll take mine off.”

That’s how it works now. Absolutely manipulative. Extremely disgusting.

Yes, it would be interesting to see how it is at elementary schools, and I am going to find out.

If children in the elementary school are sitting in drafty classrooms and start getting sick because of this manipulative crap, then I think we as parents aren’t finished with this topic yet.

It looks like we celebrated too soon after hearing that the mask requirement was overturned.

Imagine students sitting in classroom in this horrible weather in a nonstop draft, and being oppressed by this method. Totally manipulated.

The choice is either you put your masks on or you sit here in the freezing cold, getting sick.

Either you put your masks on or you can’t understand a thing I say.

It’s a filthy trick. I’m outraged.

It’s just completely disgusting how manipulative the teachers are acting.

Unbelievable. Unbelievable. Have a nice day.

PORTLAND MAYOR’S BAN ON POLICE USE OF TEAR GAS ENRAGES OFFICERS

BY RICK MORAN

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/rick-moran/2020/09/12/portland-mayors-ban-on-police-use-of-tear-gas-enrages-officers-n922854;

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

Portland’s self-inflicted agony continues but at least the rioters will be more comfortable.

Mayor Ted Wheeler has banned police from using CS tear gas to subdue the rioters. Apparently some innocent bystanders got a whiff or two of the stuff — tear gas is not a discriminating weapon — and the rioters objected to the use of the gas as well.

Ever accommodating, especially to the rioters, Wheeler told police they could no longer use the gas in crowd control.

Portland Mercury:

“It’s time for everyone to reduce the violence in our community. We all want change. We all have the opportunity and obligation to create change,” said Wheeler in a Thursday press release. “That’s why, as Police Commissioner, effective immediately and until further notice, I am directing the Portland Police to end the use of CS gas for crowd control.”

Why should the rioters even want to “reduce the violence in our community?” They are trying to foment violence. They want violence. Wheeler is beyond belief.

Wheeler lives in a fantasy world. The rioters aren’t protesting anything. They only want to cause confusion and mayhem. And Wheeler has given them a gift by allowing them to cause disturbances without fear of being handicapped by tear gas.

The Portland Police Department is beside themselves.

“Banning the lawful use of CS will make it very difficult to address this kind of violence without resorting to much higher levels of physical force, with a correspondingly elevated risk of serious injury to members of the public and officers,” the statement reads. “CS, while effective, is a significantly lower level of force than impact weapons, which would very likely be necessary to disperse riotous groups with its prohibition.”

Next on the agenda is banning “impact weapons.” I guess the feeling is if you can’t defund the police, you can disarm them.

“Police need all kinds of tools and resources to effectively respond to violence perpetrated by groups of people,” the statement reads. “Lately, it seems more tools have been taken away than added. There has been mention of research into alternative methods that may prevent the need for greater force. No one has presented a solution of how officers can stop a rioting group who are threatening the lives of those present.”

Well, the solution offered by the protesters is simple: Let ’em riot.

In fact, the legislature convened task forces to look at this very issue. They came up with some interesting solutions — for the rioters.

Ideas, coming both from law enforcement experts and members of the public, have spanned from police officers not wearing armored riot gear during protests in order to de-escalate the situation or training officers on how to make individual arrests without indiscriminately gassing a crowd.

Another solution to quell these demonstrations? Respond to the protester’s demands.

How would police officers leaving themselves wide open to injury or death from rocks, bricks, or slabs of concrete “de-escalate” the situation? Maybe the rioters would prefer a simple crucifixion of some officers.

It’s quite simple; no riots, no tear gas. Is that too hard for people to comprehend? Apparently so.

COMMUNIST CHINESE GOVERNMENT COMBINES ‘TRACK AND TRACE’ CORONA SYSTEM WITH OPPRESSIVE SOCIAL CREDIT SCORE

Chinese Government Combines ‘Track and Trace’ Corona System With Social Credit Score

VIDEO: 

BY PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/chinese-government-combines-track-and-trace-corona-system-with-social-credit-score/;

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

The Communist government of China has combined its coronavirus ‘track and trace’ system with the country’s notorious social credit score.

As the Epoch Times’ Joshua Philipp explains, fears that the new COVID surveillance system would be used for “totalitarian social monitoring” are being realized in China.

“The local government of China’s Jiangsu province has launched a new social control system that combines the CCP’s health code program with the regime’s social credit system to create what they’re calling a civilization code,” Philipp reported.

The new system ranks each citizen via a “civilization score” and then places them in a category which determines whether they get priority access to services or are punished and restricted.

The new system represents an expansion of the social credit score and is being initially rolled out in the city of Suzhou and will apply to everyone over the age of 18.

Last year, we also highlighted how Chinese citizens would need to pass a facial recognition test to access the Internet in another expansion of the social credit score system.

In August 2019, the Communist state bragged about how it had prevented 2.5 million “discredited entities” from purchasing plane tickets and 90,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in the month of July alone.

As we document in the video below, the onerous social credit score system is literally designed to punish and socially ostracize dissidents who express controversial opinions.

In the age of social media de-platforming, an identical system is gradually being introduced in the west, where people who have been banned by social media networks for ‘offensive’ views are then also de-platformed by companies and banks.

 

ERNST ROHM, MAXIMILIAN ROBESPIERRE, & DEMOCRAT PARTY STORMTROOPERS

The Brownshirts are coming under Democrat rule.

BY GARY GINDLER

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/09/ernst-r%C3%B6hm-maximilian-robespierre-and-democrat-gary-gindler/;

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

In 1933, Hermann Goering was appointed Minister of the Interior (i.e., Police Commissioner) of Prussia.  One of Goering’s first innovations was a radical change in the priorities of police, including specific restrictions of police activities.  The novelty of Goering’s approach was that he departed from the socialist tradition of demanding the abolition of the police, which was first proposed by Vladimir Lenin a quarter of a century before the described events in his article “April Theses” of 1917.

Another radical proposal of Russian socialists – the closure of prisons and the release of all prisoners – has been partially implemented by some American Democrat Governors a hundred years later.  In the spring of 2020, a massive number of criminals were released from local (non-Federal) prisons – allegedly due to the coronavirus – who then went on to make a significant contribution to pogroms, looting, and riots.

Minister Goering’s first step was staging a grand purge of the police and hiring National Socialist Party activists with no police experience to replace the thousands of dismissed policemen.  How could the head of police practically leave citizens to their fate without police protection? This seems more than strange, but Goering had a different task.

The fact is that by that time, the Nazis had already created alternative police, which was subordinate only to the party – the so-called SA (Sturmabteilung).  The SA stormtroopers wore light brown uniforms.  This uniform was bought by the party of German National Socialists – the NSDAP – at a bargain price from the German army, which kept in its warehouses millions of units of these clothes, prepared for Germany’s invasion of Africa during the First World War.  The invasion never took place, and the army was glad to get rid of unnecessary uniforms.

The stormtroopers of the National Socialist Party, the SA, went down in history as the Brownshirts.

As Minister of the Interior, Hermann Goering ordered the Prussian State police to work in parallel with the police of the National Socialist Party.

Soon this approach was extended to the entire Third Reich.  The task of the Brownshirts was not to protect law and order but to organize riots, pogroms, arson, and intimidation of opponents of the National Socialist ideology to strengthen their political power.

In parallel with the radical reform of the police, a process of radical control over firearms began in Germany – at first, in 1933, it was only about the registration of military-grade weapons, and then it was time to register any gun.  In 1935 and 1938, Germany adopted laws on the total confiscation of firearms from all “unreliable elements” (Jews, for example).  At the same time, all restrictions were lifted on weapons for members of the NSDAP and related organizations (such as the Hitler Youth).

As a result, the main task of the German state police was not to protect citizens but to protect the rioters.

Democrat mobsters imitate the Nazi Brownshirts in many ways, although in some ways they differ.  Today’s leftists decided to emulate the Blackshirts of the Italian socialist Mussolini (in clothing choice), the Brownshirts of the German National Socialists (in their methods of terror), and the Maoist Hongweibing (in ideological stubbornness).  Blackshirts, Brownshirts, and Hongweibing are ancient practices of global leftist movements.  In other words, in 2020, neither leftist philosophy nor the current generation of leftists in America could come up with anything new.

Calls for the dissolution of the police or defunding of police are attempts by Democrats to transform the police from a law enforcement agency into a rioters’ protection agency.

The irony of history is that a year later, in 1934, the leadership of the Brownshirts led by Ernst Röhm was eradicated (the official code name for this operation was “Operation Hummingbird,” but it went down in history as the “Night of the Long Knives”).  Who eliminated the SA leaders, all of whom were loyal supporters of National Socialism? This was done by their party comrades, SS Stormtroopers, and the word “comrades” is the most acceptable here.  The fact is that, according to the tradition established among all socialists, members of the SS called themselves that way (for example, “Comrade Sturmbannfuehrer,” not “Herr Sturmbannfuehrer”).

The same fate awaits the American democrat goons, although, at present, no one can predict precisely how the reprisals against these leftist militants will take place.  Only one thing is known – the reprisals against these Democrats will be carried out by the Democrats themselves as part of an internal power struggle.  In the same way, Maximilian Robespierre, one of the founders of the leftist ideological terror, fell under the guillotine at the hands of his fellow revolutionaries.

If the SA militants in Germany were replaced by the SS militants in 1934, then someone else will replace the white Antifa stormtroopers, and black BLM stormtroopers for there are enough left-wing terrorist organizations in America.  Perhaps the go-ahead for the internal crackdown against Antifa and BLM will be given immediately after Biden’s loss on November 3 this year.

From a Machiavellian standpoint, the Democrat Party thugs – Antifa and BLM – are simply an extraordinary political gift.  Who needs agent-provocateurs if your political opponent has such renegades? Do not forget that the primary damage from democratic pogroms falls solely on the democratic states and democratic enclaves.  For months now, the “peaceful democratic rioters” have been dragging the model of the “peaceful guillotine” around the democratic enclaves.

As a result, the new symbol of the Democrat Party of America has become not just a donkey, but a donkey carrying a guillotine.

It is unlikely that any vacillating Republicans or other indecisive voters would dare to associate themselves with such a party.

It took Biden three months to formulate and present his opinion on the subject.  Portland has been burning for three months, and finally, Joe Biden made a statement in which he did not condemn – no – he just chided his supporters for “unnecessary violence.” Biden basically said that you guys are doing noble work, but still, the destruction of capitalism should not take such overt forms.  Biden believes that burning entire city blocks to the ground is overkill.  It took a person who positions himself as the future leader of the free world three whole months to come to this conclusion.  Anyone, even a person who is very far from politics, understands that this is just a mockery of common sense. 

It is an admission that Biden did not, does not, and will never have leadership skills.

Only a complete political dilettante does not understand that by the end of summer 2020, the political train to Washington has already left the station.  To jump on the last wagon, Biden had three months to harshly condemn the rioters, as Donald Trump did.  Biden missed this opportunity, and now the Democrats will be inevitably defeated in two months.

After the defeat, an intraspecific massacre among Democrats will begin, which the history of America has not yet seen.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST PASTORS TO RELEASE JOINT STATEMENT ENDORSING PRO-ABORTION, PRO-LGBT, “TRUE CHRISTIAN” JOE BIDEN

IMG-0223.jpg

SEE: https://reformationcharlotte.org/2020/09/10/sbc-pastors-to-release-joint-statement-endorsing-pro-abortion-pro-lgbt-true-christian-joe-biden/;

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

David Bumgardner describes himself as a “21-year-old student, theologian-in-training, preacher, and content-creator” who is a regular on several podcasts and radio shows, a speaker, and serves as a Pastoral Intern at Faith Memorial Baptist Church in Archer City, Texas.

Bumgardner, according to his Facebook page, is a student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, a prominent Southern Baptist seminary that, like most Southern Baptist entities, has been given over to unbiblical thinking and “woke” theology.

Unsurprisingly, Bumgardner, like many Southern Baptist pastors and students, has also made a sharp turn to the left and bought into the false narrative that the current president, Donald Trump, is some kind of egotistic white supremacist that, for whatever reason, needs to be removed from office at all costs — even at the expense of innocent lives, religious freedom, and the right to live out a Christian worldview.

The implications are far more than political, they are theological. The line of reasoning that Bumgardner employs stems from a vastly deficient and sub-biblical epistemology and worldview.

“Very soon I, along with trusted and respected evangelical ministers and leaders, will be releasing a joint evangelical declaration outlining the case for #BidenHarris2020,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

“I believe Donald Trump is a threat to the flourishing of my neighbors,” he continued, “I believe he is a threat to national security. I believe he is a threat to national unity. I believe he is stoking the fires of civil and racial unrest. I believe his hypocrisy is palpable and manifest. I believe he is a blasphemer who does not care about evangelicals.”

Apparently, however, he believes that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are not? Maybe. I don’t know. He sounds foolish, though.

“I believe Republicans have failed to introduce any meaningful legislation to reduce the number of abortions performed in the Unites States,” he continued, as though he actually believes what he’s writing here. And even if it were true, it’s not the point.

He continues, “I believe single-issue voting is an abdication of civic duty.”

The argument of “single-issue voting” is massively uninformed, at best. It is completely absurd. While the killing of innocent children is certainly at the top of the priority list for many — and rightfully so — there is absolutely nothing that the Democrats endorse on their platform that a biblically-minded Christian could endorse. Nothing. We’re talking not just about abortion, but religious freedom, freedom of speech, theft and wealth redistribution, lawlessness and open borders, anti-police sentiment, the advancement of LGBTQ indoctrination and the promotion of sexual anarchy, and the list goes on. This is who Bumgardner says he and his “Evangelical” friends will be officially endorsing.

“I am voting for Joe Biden because he is the *true* “Christian option” in this election,” he says. He then goes on to try to neutralize his opponents by saying that he will not question the salvation of those who disagree with him and implies that it would be foolish to “deride” him for his decision by citing Proverbs 18:13.

Yet, the Scriptures tell us that we will know them by their fruits — and it is clear that his fruits are in opposition to the biblical teachings on priorities. Therefore, it is Bumgardner who is foolish, and we have every right — and duty — to judge him for it (1 Corinthians 5:12). It would be foolish not to.

If someone who claims to be a Christian and has studied the Bible for a considerable amount of time actually believes this way, there is no way around it; this person has not been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and has no business preaching or leading a church.

THE CONTINUATION OF THE “MIRACULOUS” AND SPIRITUAL GIFTS

The miraculous gifts recorded and described in the New Testament did not cease at the end of the apostolic era. While the apostolic office is closed, God the Holy Spirit continues to sovereignly dispense spiritual gifts (including those we may classify as “miraculous”) for the edification of the local assembly of believers, the furtherance of the Kingdom, and the vindication of the Gospel believers boldly proclaim. Believers should earnestly desire and pursue the spiritual gifts; they should seek to practice their gifts in the gathered assembly in an orderly and edifying manner while submitting to the pastor/elders God has placed over them.

SEATTLE CLOSES PARK AHEAD OF RAYER RALLY; BELIEVERS WORSHIP OUTSIDE ANYWAY

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

Sean Feucht, head of the international Sean Feucht Ministries, planned to hold a prayer meeting at Seattle’s Gas Works Park on Labor Day, but the city issued a statement on September 4 saying that the park would be shut down on Labor Day due to COVID-19. Temporary fencing was set up to keep people out, with the city claiming that any Labor Day gatherings at the park could lead to “crowding that could impact the public health of residents.”

When Feucht learned of the shutdown, he posted the following to his Facebook page:

This is the height of hypocrisy for the city of Seattle to turn a blind eye to riots, looting, and AntiFa, while refusing the let Christians gather in a public park to sing and worship.

First the government shuts down churches. Now it’s shutting down parks to stop us from worshipping.

Time to stand up, church!

More than two thousand worshippers showed up outside the fences, in the street, on Labor Day to pray, sing, and worship God. Afterwards, Feucht posted this on Twitter:

At the same time, Feucht’s organization, which started out of his college dorm room and now spans six continents with presence in more than 250 cities, was holding a similar rally at the California state capitol in Sacramento. There, more than 12,000 believers celebrated in violation of Governor Gavin Newsom’s edicts against large gatherings.

Feucht told America’s Newsroom that this was the 21st city where his Let Us Worship rallies are being held, calling it a “rising up” against the state:

What we’re experiencing across America is especially with the churches being closed and, you know, these godless politicians that are taking aim at the church, you know, people are rising up.

There’s a backlash that’s growing. We had 12,000 people that gathered with us at the capitol in Sacramento two nights ago and it’s just continuing to build momentum.

Among those taking early positions against California’s illegal and unconstitutional edicts is Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley. When he first learned that the virus could wind up killing millions, he closed his church and went online instead.

And then he discovered it was a lie.

He told Gabe Lyons, host of Q Ideas:

Being a pastor means you’re a truth teller. That means you’re a truth teller when it comes to the Bible. That means you protect your people from deception that comes from the world. That’s part of being a shepherd. You don’t want to aid and abet the lie.

This is a lie and you can’t necessarily say that everybody that’s involved in it has an ulterior motive but the lie is dominating and you need to be a truth teller and you need to do your homework.

I would say to pastors, “Have church, open up, have church.” You don’t have to fear someone’s going to die. You don’t have to fear you’re going to get sick, because they’re not going to be able to trace this back. I haven’t seen anything like that anywhere….

Health mandates and governors’ orders are not law. I don’t think you have to fear [them]. You need to open the church because this, of all times, when people fear, is where they need to come.

MacArthur explained how he discovered that the COVID threat was a lie:

In the beginning, we heard millions are going to die. Well, anybody with any common sense is going to say, “We don’t want to be responsible for millions of people dying.” So we did livestream and we went on doing that for four weeks until we were trying to figure out the realities.

And then just in kind of a personal transition people started coming to church. They knew we were doing livestream, they knew the auditorium was empty. They just started coming in and more every week, every week, every week, and they did that because every week it became more clear that millions were not going to die. And at that point, I finally said, “We need to be here.”

We heard the other day that there is one death per 100,000 people from COVID in California at this present time, so the narrative doesn’t work. They can’t sell us this lie anymore that makes you shut down the church. We've had about 7,000 people in church the last couple of weeks. We don’t know of anybody sick. We’ve never had anybody in the hospital with COVID.

The church in America appears finally to be awakening, not only to the lie, but to its responsibility to follow the Holy Scriptures’ demand. From Acts 2:46: “And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts.” From Hebrews 10:24-25: “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”

ALEX NEWMAN: DEMONIC SPIRITS BEHIND BLACK LIVES MATTER~THE PROOF POSITIVE

In this episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman explores the spiritual nature of Black Lives Matter, showing that BLM founders and leaders openly admit they are conjuring spirits and supposed dead ancestors that are "working" through them. As Alex explains, the Bible condemns this as witchcraft, sorcery, necromancy, communication with demons, and more, all of which the Bible calls detestable. The dark spiritual nature of BLM should have been obvious from the fruit of the movement: riots, destruction, death, burning, looting, hate, division, and even murder. Now, these same BLM activists are training teachers to summon "ancestor spirits" into the classrooms with school children. Obviously, this is a spiritual war. It is time for churches to take their rightful place at the front lines of the battle. ▶️

Season three of “Star Trek: Discovery” on CBS All Access will introduce the franchise’s first “transgender” and “non-binary” characters in the history of the science fiction drama.

“Star Trek has always made a mission of giving visibility to underrepresented communities because it believes in showing people that a future without division on the basis of race, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation is entirely within our reach,” Executive Producer Michelle Paradise said in a press release.

The season, beginning Oct. 15, will include Blu del Barrio, who identifies as “non-binary,” as the character Adira. Non-binary is defined as “neither exclusively male or female.” Ian Alexander, a female who identifies as male, will play the role of Gray.

The homosexual and transgender advocacy group GLAAD recently interviewed del Barrio about her experience in acting for the series, in which — as part of the storyline — she slowly comes out as “non-binary” to friends Lt. Commander Paul Stamets and Dr. Hugh Culber, who are both open homosexuals.

“If someone had a question about my identity, they asked it thoughtfully and kindly. When I went to our costume department and sheepishly asked them if I could use a binder under my costumes, they went and MADE me one,” she said of the cast and crew.

“I know this isn’t how it would go on every set, but it was clear that on the Discovery set, the producers, directors, writers, cast, and crew were equally committed to writing these wonderful characters in Adira and Gray, and creating a safe and healthy work environment for me and Ian,” del Barrio stated.

Star Trek also took to social media to tout the inclusion of del Barrio and Alexander, simply writing, “Welcome Blu del Barrio and @ianaIexander to the #StarTrekFamily! They will be playing Adira, Star Trek’s first non-binary character, and Gray, Star Trek’s first transgender character in #StarTrekDiscovery Season 3.”

The announcement generated mixed reaction from followers.

“I am overjoyed. To have such overall inclusive representation in a mainstream long time renowned sci-fi franchise is overwhelming and breathtaking,” one commenter wrote.

“I identify as bi-gender. Having Adira as my representation as a non-binary character is empowering,” another said.

“I am disapointed with Star Trek Discovery, and the Star Trek brand now,” a third advised. “I am a huge fan of all the old stuff. A character should be added on their merits, not the need to rub virtue signaling in our face.”

“Seriously… God must be in pain,” another remarked.

According to reports, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was a humanist and had wanted to include script about his criticisms of God in the production, but the concept was too controversial.

“The Enterprise meets God in space; God is a life form, and I wanted to suggest that there may have been, at one time in the human beginning, an alien entity that early man believed was God and kept those legends,” he is quoted as stating. “But I also wanted to suggest that it might have been as much the devil as it was God. After all, what kind of God would throw humans out of Paradise for eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge?”

“One of the Vulcans on board, in a very logical way, says, ‘If this is your God, He’s not very impressive. He’s got so many psychological problems; He’s so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for His own mistakes. He’s a pretty poor excuse for a Supreme Being.”

As previously reported, while some view transgenderism and gender confusion as a medical condition, Christians believe the matter is also, at its root, a spiritual issue — one that stems from the same predicament all men everywhere face without Christ.

The Bible teaches that all are born with the Adamic sin nature, having various inherent feelings and inclinations that are contrary to the law of God, and being utterly incapable of changing by themselves.

It is why Jesus came: to “save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).

Scripture outlines that Jesus came to be the propitiation for men’s sins (1 John 2:21 John 4:10), a doctrine in Christianity known as substitutionary atonement, and to save men from the wrath of God for their violations against His law (Romans 4:25Romans 5:9Romans 5:16), a doctrine known as justification.

The Bible also teaches about regeneration, as in addition to sparing guilty men from eternal punishment, Christ sent his Holy Spirit to make those who would repent and believe the gospel new creatures in the here and now, with new desires and an ability to do what is pleasing in the sight of God by His indwelling and empowerment (Ezekiel 11:192 Corinthians 5:17Titus 3:5).

Jesus said that men must be born again, and have their very nature transformed by the Spirit from being in Adam to being in Christ, or they cannot see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3-8).

 

NEW CDC DATA SHOWS 94% OF COVID-19 DEATH CASES HAD UNDERLYING POOR HEALTH CONDITIONS

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Sept. 2 weekly update on COVID-19 mortality in the U.S., which is published by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), reported 170,566 deaths “involving COVID-19” that occurred between Feb. 1, 2020 and Aug. 29, 2020.1 During the same time period there were 1,841,678 deaths from all causes. About 94 percent of the death cases confirmed to be COVID-19-related involved other coinciding infections or underlying poor health conditions, including influenza, pneumonia, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Child Deaths from COVID-19 Rare

Of the deaths involving COVID-19, 79 percent were over age 65 and 31 percent were over age 85. Children under age 14 accounted for 0.00035 percent of deaths.

Fifty four percent of all deaths involving COVID-19 were male. Provisional death reports for COVID-19 peaked on Mar. 18, 2020, which also coincides with the peak for deaths from all causes in the United States.2 Hispanic and non-Hispanic black residents experienced disproportionate deaths involving COVID-19.3

Most COVID-19 Deaths in Nursing Hospitals, Inpatient Facilities

Almost 65 percent of deaths involving COVID-19 occurred in a nursing home or other inpatient healthcare facility, whereas 29 percent of all-cause deaths during the same period occurred in an inpatient setting. Roughly 21 percent of COVID-19 deaths occurred in nursing homes, while approximately 18 percent of all-cause deaths occurred in nursing homes.

Home is the most common location (33.6 percent) for people who die of all causes in the U.S.4

94 Percent of COVID-19 Death Cases Had Other Underlying Health Problems

For six percent of the coronavirus-associated deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For COVID-19-related death cases in persons who had other infections or conditions in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per COVID-related death. The most common respiratory conditions included influenza, pneumonia, respiratory failure, and adult respiratory distress syndrome.

Comorbid circulatory diseases included hypertension, cardiac arrest, ischemic heart disease, heart failure, and cardiac arrhythmia. Approximately 16 percent of the death certificates listed diabetes, and 11 percent stated that vascular and unspecified dementia contributed or was the cause of death. Three percent had intentional or unintentional injury, poisoning or other type of adverse event listed.5

Reports of COVID-19 Deaths Based on Provisional Data

The NCHS uses incoming data from death certificates to produce provisional COVID-19 death counts.6 These include deaths occurring within the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

When COVID-19 is reported as a cause of death—or when it is listed as a “probable” or “presumed” cause—the death is coded using a new ICD-10 code, and this code can include cases with or without laboratory confirmation.

Provisional death counts may not match counts from other sources, such as media reports or numbers from county health departments. Counts by NCHS often track 1–2 weeks behind other data, and may be delayed for the following reasons:

  • Death certificates take time to be completed. There are many steps to filling out and submitting a death certificate. Waiting for test results can create additional delays.
  • States report at different rates. Currently, 63 percent of all U.S. deaths are reported within 10 days of the date of death, but there is significant variation between states.
  • It takes extra time to code COVID-19 deaths. While 80 percent of deaths are electronically processed and coded by NCHS within minutes, most deaths from COVID-19 must be coded by a person, which takes an average of seven days.
  • Other reporting systems use different definitions or methods for counting deaths.

Provisional counts are not final and are subject to change. Counts from previous weeks are continually revised as more records are received and processed. Counts do not include all deaths that occurred during a given time period, especially for more recent periods.

However, NCHS estimates how complete their numbers are by looking at the average number of deaths reported in previous years. Death counts should not be compared across states since some states report deaths on a daily basis, while other states report deaths weekly or monthly. State vital record reporting may also be affected or delayed by COVID-19 related response activities.

CDC Guidelines for Certifying Coronavirus Deaths

Death certificates contain two parts. Part I is for reporting the sequence of conditions that led directly to death. The immediate cause of death, which is the disease or condition that directly preceded death and is not necessarily the underlying cause of death (UCOD), are reported first and the conditions that led to the immediate cause of death should be reported in a logical sequence in terms of time and etiology below it. The UCOD, which is “the disease or injury which initiated the train of morbid events leading directly to death or… the circumstances of the accident or violence which produced the fatal injury,” should be reported on the lowest line used in Part I.7

Other significant conditions that contributed to the death, but are not a part of the sequence in Part I, should be reported in Part II. Not all conditions present at the time of death have to be reported—only those conditions that actually contributed to death.8

In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID-19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), CDC reporting guidelines state:

It is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed.” In these instances, certifiers should use their best clinical judgement in determining if a COVID–19 infection was likely. However, please note that testing for COVID-19 should be conducted whenever possible.9

Jeff Lancashire, acting associate director for communications at the NCHS, said that, while 94 percent of death certificates that mention COVID-19 also listed other conditions, the underlying cause of death was COVID-19 in almost all of them. “ The underlying cause of death is the condition that began the chain of events that ultimately led to the person’s death,” he said. “In 92 percent of all deaths that mention COVID-19, COVID-19 is listed as the underlying cause of death.”10

Are CDC guidelines used to “pad” COVID-19 numbers?

Scott Jensen, MD, a family physician and Minnesota state senator, has publicly challenged the CDC’s guidelines for permitting presumed or probable cases of COVID to be listed on death certificates, saying they are “ridiculous” and could be misleading the public. Dr. Jensen states that the CDC’s death certificate manual tells physicians to focus on “precision and specificity,” but the coronavirus death certification guidance runs completely counter to that axiom.11

Dr. Jensen also reacted to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s response to a question about the potential for the number of coronavirus deaths being “padded,” in which the NIAID director described the prevalence of “conspiracy theories” during “challenging” times in public health. Dr. Jensen said:

I would remind him that anytime health care intersects with dollars it gets awkward. Right now Medicare has determined that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you’ll get paid $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator, you get $39,000; three times as much. Nobody can tell me, after 35 years in the world of medicine, that sometimes those kinds of things [don’t have] impact on what we do.

Most Americans Live with Chronic Disease

That so many COVID-19 deaths are associated with chronic disease highlights the risk factor inherent in underlying poor health conditions. The CDC reports that six in ten Americans lives with a chronic disease, and four in ten have two or more. These chronic diseases—heart, lung and kidney disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease—are the leading cause of death and disability, and are the leading drivers in the nation’s $3.5 trillion in annual health care costs,12 as well as raise the risk of severe illness from the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection.13

Obesity is one of the most common underlying conditions increasing one’s risk for severe illness and about 40 percent of U.S. adults are obese.  The more underlying medical conditions people have, the higher their risk.14

Featured Photo: Democratic Socialists of America (red flags) march with Antifa in Portland.

The Portland branch of America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has been highly active in the Portland riots, and openly condones violence as a “part of all successful protest movements.” Portland DSA has formed a dangerous coalition with Antifa rioters and the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Portland DSA is deeply involved in the riots that have been terrorizing the town. They have also collaborated with the Portland chapter of CAIR to slander police officers ironically as being “violent.”

At a DSA convention last year, DSA passed a resolution to unite with Antifa as reported at RAIR Foundation USA. Their resolution, to “create a national working group dedicated to antifascist organizing,” explains: “as the most prominent and mainstream socialist organization in the USA, [DSA] is uniquely positioned to promote mainstream acceptance of antifascism as a viable tactic.”

See just some of their tweets promoting violence:

Like the other DSA chapters across America, the Portland chapter is very active in the community and are often successful in accomplishing their subversive goals. For example, as reported at RAIR Foundation USA, the Portland DSA was pivotal in the Portland Trail Blazers “decision to end their six-year partnership with Oregon-based Leupold & Stevens, who manufactures equipment used by police and military, including the Israel Defense Forces.”

DSA Portland Meets to Discuss Universal Preschool

The Portland DSA is hard at work to push their “universal preschool” initiative “for every child in Multnomah County” as reported at RAIR. During their aforementioned convention, the DSA resolved to spend tens of thousands of dollars to support universal childcare: “…we must begin educating and valuing the input of the next generation of Democratic Socialists.” Portland DSA has a very polished website to promote the initiative.

BREAKING: RADICALIZED SPLC BLAMES KENOSHA VIOLENCE ON TRUMP AND POLICE; PRAISES BLM AND ANTIFA

The Southern Poverty Law Center asserts that President Trump, law enforcement and Kyle Rittenhouse are to blame for the violence that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin last month. This, despite the fact that violence has greatly diminished since the President sent the National Guard to the embattled town. By contrast, the SPLC spoke favorably of Antifa and group called “Movement for Black Lives,” a communist-tied coalition deeply involved in the activism across the country.

The SPLC doubled down on the ridiculous, demonstrably false premise that black Americans are being slaughtered by police officers, and that the motivation is racism. Instead, the SPLC blames “far right actors” for violence such as Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old teenager who by all accounts defended himself during the chaos, resulting in the death of two Antifa rioters Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.

The SPLC also laughably claimed that there should be “a de-escalation of law enforcement tactics nationwide” in order to stop violence.

SPLC on Antifa and the Communist-Tied ‘Movement for Black Lives

The SPLC repeatedly cited an organization responsible for much of the activism in America. The SPLC is trying to distance the “coalition group” named the “Movement for Black Lives” from the violence, claiming that the “random destruction, opportunistic theft and righteous anger at police violence” are “separate and distinct from the Movement for Black Lives.”

But research from author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon contradicts the narrative that the Movement for Black Lives is peaceful. According to his research, the group is infested with communists who want to destroy America.

The SPLC engages in mental gymnastics over Antifa, saying that there is “a far-right preoccupation” over their violent tactics. The SPLC downplayed Antifa’s clear involvement in the rioting over the past few months, stating that “the threat of antifa has been a favorite stalking horse of white nationalist groups for years.”

No More Violence in Kenosha

Despite the SPLC’s assertions that law enforcement is somehow responsible for riots across America, the violence in Kenosha has decreased immeasurably since August 26th, when President Donald Trump sent in the National Guard after hard left Governor Tony Evers finally listened to the pleas of the citizens.

In fact, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department posted a Media Release on Thursday which stated in part:

“As of today September 3rd, 2020 Kenosha County has gone 8 days and nights with relatively peaceful activity.”

What stopped the violence if not the reinforcements sent by President Trump?

The Southern Poverty Law Center despite being highly partisan, are still cited regularly by the left-wing media, are used to deplatform conservative groups they deem to be hateful, and are actively indoctrinating children.

As our long national nightmare of “15 days to flatten the curve” drags into its sixth (sixth!) month, many of our nation’s governors and bureaucrats are inventing new ways to wield their power.

On August 31, without much fanfare and with almost no news coverage, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Lost His Way) ordered Interim Director of Health Lance M. Himes to amend the insidious (and unconstitutional) health order the state’s citizens have been suffering under since March to create what amounts to FEMA camps. The order purports to “avoid an imminent threat with a high probability of widespread exposure to COVID-19 with a significant risk of substantial harm to a large number of people in the general population, including the elderly and people with weakened immune systems and chronic medical conditions.”

Never mind that deaths and hospitalizations have been on the decline in Ohio since July 1.

DeWine has been using an archaic sentence in the Ohio Revised Code, which gives the health director “ultimate authority” during a pandemic, to order everything from shutdowns to a statewide mask order to school closings. Several of these orders have been overturned by judgeswho have ruled them unconstitutional, but that hasn’t stopped DeWine from continuing to pile more orders onto the original abomination.

The latest order involves the construction and use of what are essentially FEMA camps to isolate individuals “who are unable to safely self-quarantine in their place of residence and to isolate those diagnosed with or showing symptoms of COVID-19.”

The order gives examples of the circumstances that might lead to confinement (internment?) in a camp.

Examples of the types of persons included in this order are those who test positive for COVID-19 who do not require hospitalization but need isolation (including those exiting from hospitals); those who have been exposed to COVID-19 who do not require hospitalization; and asymptomatic high-risk individuals needing social distancing as a precautionary measure.

The language in the order mirrors the text of a Frequently Asked Questions section on FEMA’s website about non-congregate sheltering, outlining the agency’s support for such measures.

The State of Ohio, and likely many other states, entered into an agreement with FEMA in March, “authorizing applicants to apply for emergency protective measures including non-congregate sheltering.”

Whether or not individuals testing positive for COVID-19 will be required to “shelter” in these camps is to be “determined by a local public health official’s direction or guidance and should be based on individual needs.”

The order is vague enough to give local mini-dictators plenty of reason to believe they have the power to order people into these camps… er… shelters.

DeWine plans to make these facilities a reality by ordering the Ohio Emergency Management Agency (EMA) to:

…secure the necessary approvals for the use of non-congregate sheltering statewide and local government agencies should take all necessary actions to identify both public and private facilities, secure available space, and enter into any contracts or mutual aid agreements that may be necessary to procure, equip, and operate non-congregate shelters throughout the state. In the event state officials determine there is a need for the state to operate a non-congregate shelter, the Ohio EMA shall coordinate with the appropriate state entities.

Where will these camps, if they become necessary, be set up? Some will be located on the campuses of public colleges and universities, where property will be, essentially, commandeered by the state, in an effort to isolate COVID-positive cases.

Public colleges and universities are directed to make available vacant grounds, buildings, and facilities of such college or university as determined to be necessary and suitable after reasonable consultation between the respective college or university officials and the local board of health, Ohio EMA, or county emergency management agency for temporary use as non-congregate sheltering to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The colleges and universities have been ordered to negotiate mutual aid agreements with local boards of health, Ohio EMA, and/or county emergency management agencies. and schools are further ordered to “impose reasonable restrictions on the use of and access to the property and facilities.” (One can only hope the schools will decide to designate the sections of their campuses set aside for safe spaces for the new FEMA camps.)

State Rep. Candace Keller, a Republican, wants to know how DeWine plans to pay for the state’s share of these facilities, seeing as there’s no line-item in the budget for them. But as we’ve seen, the governor doesn’t need the legislature to enact his orders—he’s bypassed them every step of the way with his (did I mention they’re unconstitutional?) health department diktats.

This order comes as deaths and hospitalizations for COVID-19 have been in decline in Ohio:

(Ohio Department of Health data)

While there have been localized spikes in the number of cases (DeWine blames people going to church and attending family gatherings), the number of people dying or needing hospitalization in Ohio as a result of the COVID-19 virus has plummeted. That hasn’t stopped DeWine from increasing the restrictions on Ohio citizens, including a statewide mask order that, inexplicably, came as deaths and hospitalizations were on the decline in the state.

And now he’s ordering that our poop be monitored for outbreaks of COVID-19. If you had any illusions that these overwrought orders would be ending anytime soon, I’m sorry to disappoint you. We sailed right past “15 days to flatten the curve” in March and have now entered the phase where we are being told not to expect to return to any sense of normalcy until the coronavirus is all but eradicated from the earth.

POPE FRANCIS’ NEW ENCYCLICAL TO PRAISE PALESTINIAN JIHAD TERROR SUPPORTER AS EXAMPLE OF “PEACE” & “FRATERNITY”

“All Brothers: On Fraternity and Social Friendship”

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

Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Fratelli tutti: sulla fraternità e l’amicizia sociale (“All Brothers: On Fraternity and Social Friendship”) will be issued on October 3, the Vatican confirmed Saturday. According to Church Militant, the encyclical is “a sequel to his controversial Abu Dhabi pact with Grand Imam Ahmad al-Tayyeb last year, and will cite Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas], a Palestinian backer of terrorism, as an example of ‘peace’ and ‘fraternity.’” No, this is not the Babylon Bee; this is real.

It gets even worse. According to Vatican News, “The theme of fraternity is also present in [the Pope’s] constant embrace of migrants, epitomized in his pastoral visit to Lampedusa. His signing of the Document on Human Fraternity in Abu Dhabi in 2019 marks one more example of Pope Francis’ dedication to promoting brotherly love.”

Brotherly love. As I told Church Militant, Mahmoud Abbas has made it abundantly clear over the years that he doesn’t want peace, but the total destruction of Israel as a Jewish state and the eradication of all Jews from the region. After two jihad groups, the Mourabitoun and the Mourabitat, began violent riots on the Temple Mount in September 2015, he applauded: “We bless you; we bless the Mourabitoun and the Mourabitat. We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah. With the help of Allah, every shaheed (martyr) will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward. All of their steps, we will not allow them. All these divisions, Al-Aqsa is ours, and the (Church of the) Holy Sepulcher is ours, everything is ours, all ours. They (the Jews) have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet and we won’t allow them to.”

Abbas envisions the total expulsion of Jews from a Palestinian state: “In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli – civilian or soldier – on our lands.” And as for regarding all human beings as brothers, both Sunni and Shi’ite Islam teach that the lives of non-Muslims are not worth as much as the lives of Muslims. Reliance of the Traveller, a classic Sunni manual of Islamic sacred law, explains matter-of-factly that “the indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man. The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid for a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth that of a Muslim” (o4.9). The Qur’an calls “the unbelievers among the People of the Book,” that is, Jews and Christians who do not accept Islam, “the most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6).

Sultan Hussein Tabandeh, the Shi’ite author of A Muslim Commentary on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, agrees, stating:

Thus if [a] Muslim commits adultery his punishment is 100 lashes, the shaving of his head, and one year of banishment. But if the man is not a Muslim and commits adultery with a Muslim woman his penalty is execution. … Similarly if a Muslim deliberately murders another Muslim he falls under the law of retaliation and must by law be put to death by the next of kin. But if a non-Muslim who dies at the hand of a Muslim has by lifelong habit been a non-Muslim, the penalty of death is not valid. Instead the Muslim murderer must pay a fine and be punished with the lash. … Since Islam regards non-Muslims as on a lower level of belief and conviction, if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim, then his punishment must not be the retaliatory death, since the faith and conviction he possesses is loftier than that of the man slain…Again, the penalties of a non-Muslim guilty of fornication with a Muslim woman are augmented because, in addition to the crime against morality, social duty and religion, he has committed sacrilege, in that he has disgraced a Muslim and thereby cast scorn upon the Muslims in general, and so must be executed. … Islam and its peoples must be above the infidels, and never permit non-Muslims to acquire lordship over them.

But the Pope’s encyclical is certain to ignore all of this, and it is likely that the pontiff is completely unaware of it. The encyclical will mislead millions of Catholics into a complacency that could be fatal.

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

ATTEMPTS TO DRIVE A WEDGE BETWEEN TRUMP & THE MILITARY SHOULD RATTLE ALL AMERICANS

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

Waking up to a news cycle trying to convince you that President Trump does not respect members of the military, or dismisses their sacrifice, should not be viewed as just another poorly sourced hit piece. Even though, according to witnesses, that is precisely what The Atlantic story is. It is the intent of the anonymous sources that should rattle you.

While researching Ukraine around the time of Trump’s impeachment, I came across a bit of research that bothered me. The research was from academic and diplomat Michael McFaul. McFaul served as ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama and was the architect of the Russian “reset.”

In the early 2000s, he studied the so-called color revolutions in the former states of the Soviet Union. McFaul identified the seven elements of successful revolutions in these countries. Reporting from The Atlantic and The New York Times fits into step number seven. Both publications have run stories highlighting racialgender, and sexual orientation divisions in the military in the past week.

To understand why this matters, we will go through McFaul’s seven steps one by one. We have seen these steps used during the Arab Spring and the Maidan Revolution in Ukraine. They were weaponized and taught overseas by the State Department under Hillary Clinton in a program called Tech Camps. This program taught activists how to build movements using technology.

The groups were then activated around an invigorating event. Clearly, the event being leveraged now is the 2020 election.

Trump Is ‘Literally Hitler’

The first element of a successful color revolution, according to McFaul, is a semi-autocratic rather than fully-autocratic regime. This narrative about President Trump has been pervasive in the media and echoed by prominent Democrats since before he was elected. Despite all evidence to the contrary, the president is consistently painted as walking the line between constitutional order and authoritarianism. Sometimes he is accused of crossing it.

In the last month, Democrats and the corporate media have resurfaced the narrative that President Trump will not accept the election results if Biden wins. They assert that he will refuse to concede and will have to be forced out of the White House if he loses the election.

The administration’s actions to protect the federal courthouse in Portland were also framed as evidence of Trump’s authoritarian tendencies. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called federal law enforcement officers the president’s stormtroopers. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan declared it a dress rehearsal for martial law.

Trump’s move to reduce federal funding to cities that fail to protect their citizens and defund police departments is also being framed as beyond his constitutional power. As if the federal government using funding as a carrot and a stick to get states to implement their preferred programs hasn’t been the norm for decades.

None of this is based in reality, and it does not ring true to anyone following politics closely. Those voters are not the target. These narratives are aimed at the Democrat base and persuadable voters.

The Role of Never Trump

According to McFaul, the second requirement is an unpopular incumbent. Where to begin? The constant reminders that the president did not win the popular vote may be a good start. The implication is, and always was, that large swaths of voters nationwide did not like the president. In reality, most of Hillary Clinton’s popular vote surplus came from deep-blue California.

Democrats and the media use disaffected former Republicans as further proof Trump is unpopular within his own party. The DNC highlighted these supporters during their convention. These are the same people who are often on CNN and other networks to represent the typical Republican point of view.

The left also uses identity politics to try and make President Trump unpopular with specific constituencies. Note that Biden still uses the “very fine people” Charlottesville hoax in speeches. The media has also fawned over former Trump associates who have negative things to say about the president, like Michael Cohen, and even family members like Trump’s niece Mary.

Recent Peaceful Protests™ are also to demonstrate there are hordes of citizens who oppose President Trump. The media and Democrats try to frame this unrest as “Trump’s America,” despite all the evidence these riots have been supported by Democrats in power and even financially supported by members of the Biden campaign.

The Role of the Resistance

A third requirement, according to McFaul, is a united and organized opposition. The complete convergence of our institutions in opposing this president is breathtaking. It is so thorough that the Media Research Center has no problem creating extensive montages of media figures pushing Democrat focus-group-tested talking points. Entertainment is full of anti-Trump messaging, and even professional sports are now in the game. Add academia and even portions of the federal bureaucracy, and it is easy to control the narrative.

The opposition even has a name. The Resistance started shortly after the election. Using the hashtag or the phrase is a way to signal you are on the team. Any group can join the broader movement and oppose the president on their own terms.

Polling since the conventions is reinforcing the idea that the president is unpopular. Poorly constructed polls have been pushed out by corporate media outlets for the last week that either oversample specific populations or survey all American adults. With less than two months until Elections Day, polls should be assessing likely voters. At a minimum, registered voters should be the respondents. However, unless people read the poll details, they would not understand the game being played.

The Push for Mail-In Voting

It is not that Democrats are not aware of the problems with mail-in voting. It has caused problems in their own primary in New York City and in an election that has been thrown out in Paterson, New Jersey. It has also been reported that between 2012 and 2018, at least one in five mail-in ballots went missing in elections nationwide. Democrats are counting on this, and it is why they are pushing so hard for it.

McFaul says the fourth ingredient in a successful color revolution is an ability to quickly drive home the point that voting results were falsified. Democrats are setting up 2020 so that either side can make this claim. As the Bloomberg funded group Hawkfish noted in a recent report, Democrat voters will be far more likely to vote by mail than Republicans.

Hawkfish predicts a false landslide for Trump on election night that will erode as mail-in votes are counted. Depending on how this rolls out, it could look very suspicious to Republican voters who understand the fraud potential with mail-in ballots. Likewise, if a large number of mail-in votes are missing or thrown out for technical reasons, Democrats will scream disenfranchisement. Yet, Democrats are the ones setting their voters up to be disenfranchised by pushing COVID-19 panic porn.

This chaos will all impact the way our election typically proceeds as required by law. Local election results will be challenged in court nationwide, and it will make the “hanging chad” controversy in Bush v. Gore look like child’s play. Results will be delayed for weeks and threaten the deadlines to confirm results at the state level. According to one analysis in The Wall Street Journalentire states could be disenfranchised.

Democrats and their allies in the media are perfectly willing to destroy our faith in a safe and fair election that leads to the peaceful transfer of power our republic has relied on for more than two centuries. These are the lengths they will go to in order to gain power. They are pushing mail-in voting despite health experts saying in-person voting is safe.

The Role of the Media
It should not surprise you to know that requirement number five is having enough independent media to inform citizens about the falsified vote. As Ben Shapiro noted, the media is simply the PR wing for the Biden campaign at this point. Sharyl Attkisson went a step further and outlined the current information operation regarding the military:

Further, Democrat operatives, including John Podesta, did an election war game. The results were published in The Washington Post, and it advanced the idea that the only way to avoid violence is a Biden landslide. It also laid out the Democrats’ response to a loss in 2020, which included having California, Oregon, and Washington secede from the United States. Then they would wait to see how the military responded.

Whether the corporate media will frame whatever narrative the Democrats need them to is not in question. They are already doing it and have been since 2016. They framed President Trump as an illegitimate leader based on the fiction of Russian collusion then. Now they are eagerly resurfacing that meme based on a leak from a classified briefing. They simply ignore the fact that the same briefing said China and Iran are working hard to get Biden elected and are actually acting in more overt ways.

The media also still carries water for Stacey Abrams, who has never conceded her gubernatorial race in Georgia. The media insists the election was stolen—with no proof and a substantial amount of information to the contrary. At the DNC, they even put Abrams on the governor’s panel. They said the same of Andrew Gillum’s race in Florida until the unfortunate hotel scandal surfaced. The narrative is that red states suppress minority votes so that these results will be questioned.

Role of the Riots

Of course, none of this matters unless large groups of Americans are angry and ready to protest. As McFaul notes, a political opposition capable of mobilizing tens of thousands or more demonstrators to protest electoral fraud is necessary. Think about the riots this summer and put “killing of a black man by police officers” at number four, and the whole pattern still works. The unrest and destruction should be seen as a dry run.

The DNC also partners with two organizations, Act Blue and Action Network, who are allied with one another. Together these platforms allow progressive groups, including antifa, to raise money and organize protests electronically. It gives progressive activist groups the ability to privately and quickly communicate with members of their mailing lists. There is even a degree of list-sharing between the groups. From Action Network’s announcement of the DNC partnership:

Trump and the Military

The last requirement McFaul lists is divisions among the regimes’ coercive forces. This element is the most dangerous and sinister one on the list. It has also been going on for four years. The intelligence and federal law enforcement apparatus were weaponized against President Trump before the election. Leaks from these agencies have been constant and divisive.

Retired generals have come out against President Trump. Former Defense Secretary General James Mattis openly criticized Pentagon officials and the president for their response to the riots this summer. Former law enforcement officials, including attorneys general, U.S. attorneys, sheriffs, and police chiefs have also come out for Biden.

President Trump has generally maintained support from the rank-and-file military as well as law enforcement officers. In fact, several police unions have endorsed him, including the largest, the Fraternal Order of Police.

The recent full-court press is meant to diminish President Trump with the troops. As noted in the war game, Democrats will take drastic action in the case of a loss and wait to see what the military does. This disgusting narrative is meant to encourage them to prefer Biden.

Democrats are actually willing to try and politicize the military, a despicable move, to gain power. You should expect moves to try and ruin his reputation with police officers as well.

All In the Open

Democrats and their allies are not even hiding the ball. Hillary Clinton has openly encouraged Joe Biden not to concede under any circumstances. John Kerry has hinted that we are getting very close to a revolution because of disaffected voters. Other Democrat leaders have endorsed the riots and encouraged violence. The radicals in the street have openly supported violence and actively call for a revolution.

Even the professor is giving the game away. McFaul, who is now a Stanford professor, has been openly tweeting about his theory for days now. He did an entire thread after the RNC about how it was typical of an autocrat and effectively framing the president’s supporters as brownshirts. McFaul also commented on voter disenfranchisement in Georgia and is pushing the Russian interference meme. He also deleted a tweet comparing Trump to Putin for the president’s statements on education. This morning, it was not shocking to see this since-deleted tweet:

The Obama Bros, like Ben Rhodes, amplify him. McFaul appears on MSDNC and CNNCCP. You can also see the lefty blue-check brigade mimic his talking points if you watch closely.

What to Do?

There is no reason to believe this narrative will not continue to be amplified right through Election Day. It is up to each one of us to correct the record with everyone we know and vote in person as if your life depends on it. Ensure others do also. Remind people about early voting, which has slow periods where it is easier to socially distance. If your state is implementing mail-in voting because of the pandemic, petition your county to open polling places and educate your neighbors and communities about how many mail-in ballots get lost.

The only way to head off chaos is to make sure we can have faith in the election process. The only way to do that is to reject the fundamental changes to the system that Democrats are proposing.

TRUMP BANS CRITICAL RACE THEORY CLASSES IN FEDERAL AGENCIES

BY STACEY LENNOX

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/stacey-lennox/2020/09/06/boom-trump-bans-critical-race-theory-training-in-federal-agencies-n896234;

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

Several whistleblowers have exposed how critical race theory is being used in federal agencies. Now President Trump has directed Russel Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, to issue a directive banning this type of training. The directive is an excellent move by the president that will prevent the erosion of trust and productivity in our federal agencies. From the directive:

For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend trainings where they are told that “virtually all White people contribute to racism” or where they are required to say that they “benefit from racism.” According to press reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job.

These types of “trainings” not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce. We can be proud that as an employer, the Federal government has employees of all races, ethnicities, and religions. We can be proud that Americans from all over the country seek to join our workforce and dedicate themselves to public service. We can be proud of our continued efforts to welcome all individuals who seek to serve their fellow Americans as Federal employees. However, we cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce.

This assertion is precisely correct, especially since the precursor to critical race theory training was given the label “diversity” training.

The Insane Grift of Critical Race Theory Training In Federal Agencies

Volumes of research have demonstrated that this type of training has virtually no return on investment, especially when the trainings are mandatory. From Harvard Business Review:

It shouldn’t be surprising that most diversity programs aren’t increasing diversity. Despite a few new bells and whistles, courtesy of big data, companies are basically doubling down on the same approaches they’ve used since the 1960s—which often make things worse, not better. Firms have long relied on diversity training to reduce bias on the job, hiring tests and performance ratings to limit it in recruitment and promotions, and grievance systems to give employees a way to challenge managers. Those tools are designed to preempt lawsuits by policing managers’ thoughts and actions. Yet laboratory studies show that this kind of force-feeding can activate bias rather than stamp it out. As social scientists have found, people often rebel against rules to assert their autonomy. Try to coerce me to do X, Y, or Z, and I’ll do the opposite just to prove that I’m my own person.

The programs also don’t increase diversity in organizations. The study gave an example from the financial industry:

It’s no wonder that Wall Street firms now require new hires to sign arbitration contracts agreeing not to join class actions. They have also expanded training and other diversity programs. But on balance, equality isn’t improving in financial services or elsewhere. Although the proportion of managers at U.S. commercial banks who were Hispanic rose from 4.7% in 2003 to 5.7% in 2014, white women’s representation dropped from 39% to 35%, and black men’s from 2.5% to 2.3%. The numbers were even worse in investment banks (though that industry is shrinking, which complicates the analysis). Among all U.S. companies with 100 or more employees, the proportion of black men in management increased just slightly—from 3% to 3.3%—from 1985 to 2014. White women saw bigger gains from 1985 to 2000—rising from 22% to 29% of managers—but their numbers haven’t budged since then. Even in Silicon Valley, where many leaders tout the need to increase diversity for both business and social justice reasons, bread-and-butter tech jobs remain dominated by white men.

If you were ever required to attend one of these training sessions, you might recall the concept of unconscious bias. The idea is that there are things you are not aware of that can lead to discrimination, and the training attempted to itemize them. Behaviors such a stereotyping and the halo effect were explained, and techniques for avoiding them were provided.

This training didn’t blame or accuse attendees. It was couched as providing information. As it turns out, the concept of unconscious bias has been pretty well debunked, but it is still used in many workplaces. Even though it was informational in nature, it was still ineffective and often activated bias.

Critical race theory training is far worse. The premise is that if you are white, you are racist. Also, you are part of a racist system constructed solely to oppress minorities. You are judged to be a part of a guilty collective and cannot escape its original sin. The failure of people of other races to succeed is because the system will not allow them to, and this confers privilege on you that you must acknowledge.

If you deny any of this, critical race theory states this proves you are indeed racist. If you ask for evidence, you deny your privilege. As Christopher Rufo noted after a leak of the training given at Sandia National Laboratory, the workplace training was just one big struggle session. The participants were required to pen apologies to minority employees for not recognizing their own privilege.

Insanity Wrap #28: Nuke Lab Goes Nuclear on White Men, Minneapolis Says ‘F— You, Pay Me’

Insane? Without a doubt. The theory can also be repeated based on gender or any other immutable characteristic the social justice crowd is focused on. It will always place you in a group and assign oppressor or victim status to you. It is toxic beyond belief and will dissolve workplace productivity and relationships.

President Trump, recognizing how this training is antithetical to American values such as hard work, competence, and being judged as an individual, has taken an excellent step in the right direction. With any luck, this move at the federal level will give some CEOs courage to resist their woke HR interns and say no to this workplace culture-killing curriculum.

Hopefully, a similar directive will go out from the Department of Education. While I believe education is a local responsibility, the teachers’ unions and Black Lives Matter are pushing this curriculum on a nationwide scale. There have been hundreds of files leaked to Glenn Beck that give examples of incorporating social justice concepts into math, science, and social studies. You may have seen examples on Facebook or Twitter. Teachers are not coming up with this on their own. It is being given to them.

The only way to stop the toxic effects of critical race theories and other critical studies is to root them out of our institutions. Getting this out of the federal government is just one battle won. Public schools should be next.

Trump Takes Aim at Marxist Propaganda Behind the BLM Riots

BY TYLER O'NEIL

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2020/09/07/trump-takes-aim-at-marxist-propaganda-behind-the-blm-riots-n901392;

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

On Friday, President Donald Trump ordered that federal agencies cease leading any training sessions that push “critical race theory,” “white privilege,” or any other “propaganda effort” teaching that either the United States or any race is inherently racist or evil. On Sunday, he announced that the Department of Education (DOE) is investigating schools that teach The New York Times‘ “1619 Project” and warned that any school doing so “will not be funded.”

Trump is pushing back against the rising tide of Marxist critical theory. This noxious ideology, championed in the 1619 Project and in the “anti-racism” movement supporting the official Marxist Black Lives Matter organization, has inspired much of the violent looting, rioting, and arson in cities across America this summer. Indeed, some have referred to the riots as “the 1619 riots” for this reason.

Trump’s assault on Marxist critical theory

On Friday, Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), sent a memoto the heads of executive departments and agencies, ordering them to cease using curricula based on Marxist critical theory for their employee trainings.

“It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date ‘training’ government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda,” Vought wrote. The OMB director seems to have been referring to the 1,483 pages of Department of Defense (DOD) training materials Judicial Watch unearthed in July. An April 2015 training, for instance, branded the idea that “individual effort is key to success” as a form of “Racist Behavior.”

Vought referenced training sessions that teach that “virtually all White people contribute to racism” and others claiming that “there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job.”

“These types of ‘trainings’ not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce,” Vought wrote. “The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American prpaganda training sessions.”

While OMB will issue more detailed guidance in the future, Vought instructed federal agencies to “identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on ‘critical race theory,’ ‘white privilege,’ or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.” Federal agencies should find ways to divert federal funds away from these sessions.

“The divisive, false, and demeaning propaganda of the critical race theory movement is contrary to all we stand for as Americans and should have no place in the Federal government,” Vought concluded.

On Sunday, President Trump also brought a similar strategy to the Department of Education (DOE). He responded to someone warning that California schools have started teaching from the 1619 Project, which claims that America’s true founding came not with the Declaration of Independence in 1776 but with the arrival of the first black slaves in 1619.

(While the first black slaves arrived in the land that would become South Carolina as early as 1526, the 1619 Project is more concerned with branding America as inherently and fundamentally racist than with particular dates. The project’s founder, Nikole Hannah-Jones, has admitted that her enterprise is “not about history,” but rather about “memory” and the “national narrative.”)

As for schools teaching from the 1619 Project, the president tweeted that the “Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!”

Amid Riots, Washington and Lee University Offers a Class on ‘How to Overthrow the State’

Marxist critical theory and the “1619 riots”

The 1619 Project uses the very same Marxist critical theory that the DOD taught under Obama to demonize America and inspire an unguided and destructive revolution. Portland activist Lilith Sinclair expressed a similar idea when she said, “There’s still a lot of work to undo the harm of colonized thought that has been pushed onto Black and indigenous communities.” As examples of “colonized thought,” she mentioned Christianity and the “gender binary.” She said she organizes for “the abolition of … the United States as we know it.”

Marxist critical theory encourages people to deconstruct various aspects of society — such as capitalism, science the nuclear family, the Judeo-Christian tradition, even expectations of politeness (as the Smithsonian briefly taught) — as examples of white oppression. This inspires an aimless and destructive revolution.

When vandals toppled a statue of George Washington in Portland, they spray-painted “1619” on the statue. When Claremont’s Charles Kesler wrote in The New York Post “Call them the 1619 riots,” Hannah-Jones, responded (in a since-deleted tweet) that “it would be an honor” to claim responsibility for the destructive riots and the defamation of American Founding Fathers like George Washington.

In a November 9, 1995 op-ed, the 1619 Project founder condemned Christopher Columbus as “no different” from Adolf Hitler and demonized the “white race” as the true “savages” and “bloodsuckers.” She went on to describe “white America’s dream” as “colored America’s nightmare.” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) expressed a similar sentiment when she called for the “dismantling” of America’s “economy and political system,” in order to root out supposed racist oppression.

Yet the “1619 riots” have arguably oppressed black people far more than the U.S. supposedly does. The riots have destroyed black livesblack livelihoods, and black monuments. At least 26 Americans have died in the riots, most of them black.

The president is correct. The federal government should not be inculcating Marxist critical theory propaganda into its training sessions. America’s schools should not embrace the 1619 Project’s ultimate goals for crafting the national narrative. It is long past time Americans stand up to this pernicious ideology.

CUOMO PREVIOUSLY PRAISED TRUMP REPEATEDLY FOR "PLANDEMIC" SUPPORT

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

On Wednesday during a conference call with media, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appeared to threaten the safety of President Trump if he visits New York City.

Cuomo had been responding to a report from the New York Post about Trump considering the denial of federal assistance to “lawless” cities with rising murder rates after defunding police departments, such as New York City.

“He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him,” Cuomo said, in an apparent threat to President Trump’s safety. “He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him.”

Cuomo then accused Trump of trying to “kill New York City.”

“It is more of the same from him. It’s political, it is gratuitous. And it’s illegal. But it is another attempt to kill New York City,” he claimed. “President Ford said drop dead. President Trump has been actively trying to kill New York City since he’s been elected.”

Trump, who was born in Queens and raised in Manhattan, lived in New York his entire life, up until October 2019, when he changed his primary residence from Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan to his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump has done more for New York City than Cuomo could dream of doing in several lifetimes.

Cuomo attempted to walk back his threatening language at the end of the conference call. “My comment about the president and bodyguards in New York City, all I’m saying is that he is persona non grata in New York City. And I think he knows that,” he explained. “And he’ll never come back to New York, because New Yorkers will never forget how gratuitously mean he has been to New Yorkers and how many times he’s tried to kill the city that gave him his start and birthed him. That’s what I meant about the bodyguards.”

Governor Cuomo’s failed response to the coronavirus pandemic resulted in New York becoming the coronavirus hotspot of the entire world. His nursing home policy, which forced COVID-19-positive patients to be admitted to nursing homes and long-term care facilities, caused a massive outbreak of the disease in those facilities, causing the death rate to skyrocket. New York state was also slow to react to the pandemic, trailing behind other states, which had far better responses.

Cuomo’s language regarding Trump isn’t much different from past statements he’s made. In 2014, Cuomo said that conservatives weren’t welcome in New York. “Who are they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
