It happened in Jerusalem and it was the greatest blow struck in the ancient world on behalf of the establishment of individual liberty when Peter and the other apostles replied to the order of the Jewish authorities to shut up about the recently executed Jesus.

“We must obey God rather than men,” they said, according to Acts 5:29.

There is nothing else said or done in the ancient world, not in Rome or Athens or anywhere else, that so clearly established that the state is not the ultimate authority and is in fact subordinate to God.

You want to trace the path that led to the “inalienable rights” of the Declaration of Independence? You gotta start with this courageous statement by Peter and the other apostles.

Of course, shortly after uttering those words, the apostles were flogged for their efforts to proclaim that Jesus Christ had been crucified dead and buried, then resurrected as proof that He is exactly what He claimed to be, God Incarnate.

The state never gives up its presumption of ultimate authority easily and those floggings were succeeded by a dreary succession down through the centuries of persecution, including far more cruel and horrific beheadings, burnings at the stake, and drawing and quartering of Christians who refused to bow down to any but the sovereign Lord.

They don’t face such severe trials in Loudoun County, Virginia, not yet anyway, but Christians there must cope with a new law that constitutes nothing short of official persecution. And they are doing something about it, going to court to challenge the Virginia Values Act (VVA) in the Loudoun County Circuit Court. The case is Calvary Road Baptist Church v. Herring.

What is so bad about the VVA? According to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), whose lawyers are in court on behalf of a coalition of local churches and faith-based groups, the VVA, the law:

Compels churches, religious schools, and Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity. A companion law requires the ministries and others like them to include in employee health care plans coverage for sex reassignment and “gender-affirming” surgeries that run contrary to their beliefs. It also prohibits the ministries from offering sex-specific classes for parenting, Christian discipleship, and sports.

The VVA’s most prominent advocate is Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, the liberal Democrat made famous for his collegiate exploits wearing blackface on campus social occasions. Were Northam a Republican who did those things, he would no longer be Virginia’s chief executive, having been run out of office by Cancel Culture’s cacophony of enforcers of contemporary secular progressive orthodoxy.

The ADF barristers have quite an enviable record on behalf of religious freedom, having won 12 significant Supreme Court victories in recent years. They sound confident about this case, too:

“Religious organizations are free to make employment decisions without fear of government punishment, yet a Virginia law is violating this protected freedom by requiring them to abandon their beliefs or pay a devastating price,” ADF Senior Counsel Denise Harle said in a statement announcing the suit against the VVA.

“Virginia communities benefit greatly from the services provided by churches and faith-based schools and nonprofits, and the commonwealth must respect their right—just like anyone else’s—to continue operating by their own internal policies and codes of conduct about life, marriage, and sexuality,” she continued.

Similarly, ADF’s Kevin Theriot, who is vice president of ADF’s Center for Life, declared in the same statement:

Being able to freely live and work according to one’s beliefs is fundamental to who we are as Americans and is protected by the Constitution. What we’re seeing in Virginia, however, are government officials trying to control churches and religious groups and force them to abandon their convictions. The commonwealth has no business dictating how a faith-based organization should handle its employment decisions.

As it happens, there is no predicting how a Virginia state court will rule on such issues these days, but if ADF takes this one to the federal level, odds are quite positive, thanks in no small part to a recent decision by the federal Appeals Court for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.

There, the judges reversed an appellate panel’s prior decision against the Archbishop of Chicago and Saint Andrew the Apostle Parish in Calumet City, Illinois. The lower court had agreed the Catholic church could not fire former music director Sandor Demkovich.

Demkovich claimed he was terminated because he is gay and married to another gay man, and that he was the victim of a hostile work environment stemming from the same factors.

Demkovich lost because the court ruled, a ruling in his favor “would not only undercut a religious organization’s constitutionally protected relationship with its ministers, but also cause civil intrusion into, and excessive entanglement with, the religious sphere.” The kind of intrusion and entanglement that is barred by the First Amendment.

“Worship is sacred. That’s why worship leaders who select and perform elements of worship are ministers of the faith, conveying its teachings to the faithful,” said Daniel Blomberg, senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which also has an enviable litigation record on behalf of religious freedom.

RecommendedLawsuit: ‘I Won’t Let the State Force Me to Express Messages That Contradict My Beliefs’

“That’s also why the church — not the state — gets to make sure that its music ministers are directing its congregation in a way that’s faithful to its beliefs,” Blomberg said.

Between the Seventh Circuit opinion, multiple recent opinions in the U.S. Supreme Court, and an impressive record of litigation compiled by ADF, defenders of the VVA might be well advised to back off in Loudoun County. Their vessel has D-E-F-E-A-T written all over it.

Protests Erupt Across France After Macron Mandates Vaccinations, Proof of Compliance

Protests in Greece & France. Massive crowds demand Freedom & Liberté

Macron makes passports mandatory for “non-essential” services

EXCERPTS: 

Tens of thousands of French citizens take to the streets to fight against Macron’s unscientific totalitarian measures.

Demonstrations erupted across France after President Emmanual Macron announced new freedom-crushing measures in the name of combating coronavirus. The embattled French leader, who had previously said he would never mandate coronavirus “vaccines,” announced on July 12, 2021, new law mandating health care workers to be vaccinated. In addition, the left-wing leader warned that “depending on the evolution of the situation,” he would consider compulsory vaccinations for all of the French. Macron also extended health passes, which prove you have been vaccinated or received a recent negative Covid test, for citizens taking part in “places of leisure and culture,” along with restaurant and transportation services.

Watch a portion of Emmanual Macron’s announcement:

“If we do not act now, the number of cases will continue to rise and will inevitably lead to increased hospitalizations in August.” The President of the Republic presented new measures to supposedly curb the coronavirus pandemic, which he claims the circulation of the “very contagious Delta variant” is progressing in France.

Vaccination will be made compulsory for “nursing and non-nursing staff in hospitals, clinics, retirement homes, establishments for the disabled, for all professionals or volunteers who work in contact with the elderly or frail, including at home,” announced Macron.

Health professionals will have “until September 15” to be vaccinated. As of this date, they must have received two doses (or only one in the case where the person has already been infected with Coronavirus). Checks will be carried out,” and “sanctions will be taken,” added the head of state. “From September 15, if you are a caregiver and you are not vaccinated, you will no longer be able to work, and you will no longer be paid”, also warned the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran on French news station LCI Monday evening.

The health pass extended to “places of leisure and culture” from July 21

From July 21, the use of the health pass will be extended “to places of leisure and culture” that have more than 50 people, explained Macron. More specifically, for all people over 12 years old, “it will be necessary to have been vaccinated or to have a recent negative test to access a show, an amusement park, a concert or a festival,” detailed the head of the State. Cinemas and theaters will also be among the places health passes are mandated. Until now, the health pass was already used in certain concerts and cultural venues that had more than 1,000 people.

Extension of the health pass for restaurants and trains

“From the beginning of August, the health pass will be mandated in cafes, restaurants, as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medico-social establishments and in long-distance transport” such as planes, as well as “trains and coaches for long journeys,” said Macron. “We are going to extend the health pass as much as possible to push as many of you as possible to get vaccinated,” he said. On French news station BFMTV, the government spokesperson, Gabriel Attal, specified that the pass would also be requested from customers who wish to sit on outdoor terraces.

According to the draft law, the operator of a place that fails to meet future health pass control obligations will be liable to a fine of up to 45,000 euros and one year in prison.

This extension will be incorporated into a bill submitted to Parliament, which will be decided upon “in an extraordinary session on July 21,” added Macron.

Protests Erupt Across France

After Macron’s totalitarian announcement on Monday, patriots organized demonstrations for today and this coming Saturday in France. A tentative schedule of the events was circulated on Facebook:

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets throughout cities in France this Wednesday to protest against the extension of the health pass and the compulsory vaccination mandate announced by Macron. In addition, citizens promise that hundreds of thousands of French will march against Macron’s dictatorship this weekend.

The crowds consisting of citizens and many health care workers with no obvious political affiliation took to the streets chanting “freedom, liberty,” “down with the dictatorship,” or “against the health pass.” Citizens marching for their freedom carried signs stating, “never in my body will return the liquid of dictatorship,” stand against “big pharma,” and “What are your limits in submission?”.

It comes as no surprise that the left-wing media and academics had previously labeled anyone concerned about coronavirus compulsory vaccinations as “conspiracy theorists.” But, as previously theorized at RAIR Foundation USA, it is practically guaranteed that when the left uses the phrase “conspiracy theory,” they try to hide something. And that something is often an actual conspiracy fact. As we have predicted for some time now, governments are mandating being injected with these experimental gene therapies.

Biden Deploys Becerra Brigades~The white coat supremacy sturmtruppen are coming to your door.

BY LLOYD BILLINGSLEY

Joe Biden will deploy special squads to knock on doors in the quest to “educate” unvaccinated Americans, and Health and Human Services secretary Xavier Becerra is down with it. “The federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic. So it is absolutely the government’s business,” Becerra explains, and “knocking on doors has never been against the law.”

As they await the gentle tap, the people should know that Becerra has his own issues with the law, and the HHS boss has never shown much concern about keeping Americans alive. As Deion Kathawa notes at American Greatness, the California attorney general was a rather odd choice for the HHS job.

After a video by pro-life activist David Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood’s sale of body parts from aborted babies, Becerra did nothing to stop that ghastly trade and instead charged Daleiden with 15 felonies. The California attorney general also sued the Little Sisters of the Poor, as Kathawa explains, “because their Catholic faith compelled them not to be complicit in the sale of contraceptives under Obamacare.” With other groups, attorney general Becerra proved more lenient.

In Mendota, near Fresno, the MS-13 gang imposed a reign of terror, committing at least 14 murders, with some victims hacked to death before they could testify. Federal authorities spearheaded the case against the gang, and Becerra only showed up after the feds arrested 25 MS-13 gangsters. The attorney general made it clear he was not concerned about the gang’s “status.”

In similar style, the murder of police officers Ronil Singh and Brian Ishmael, both by illegal aliens, prompted little concern for the slain officers and no outcry against “gun violence.” The murders did not prompt attorney general Becerra to launch a campaign against criminal illegals, who enjoy sanctuary in California. These issues did not surface in Becerra’s HHS hearing, and neither did the curious case that led to his surprising departure from Washington in 2016.

Rep. Becerra, once on Hillary Clinton’s shortlist as a running mate, headed the House Democratic Caucus and was in charge of its server. The Democrat’s IT man Imran Awan had access to that computer, and that was a problem. The unvetted Awan could not possibly have qualified for a security clearance but he enjoyed access to the computers of 45 members of Congress, including members of the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees.

When investigators from the Capitol Police requested the server under Becerra’s control, they got only false information. Becerra, reportedly in line for a key post on the House Ways and Means Committee, bolted for California, where Gov. Jerry Brown tapped him for attorney general. In that role, Becerra upheld sanctuary policies and filed more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration, at a cost of $41 million.

For his part, Imran Awan became a subject for Frank Miniter, author of Spies in Congress, and Luke Rosiak, author of Obstruction of Justice: How the Deep State Risked National Security to Protect Democrats. That book, along with the Daily Caller, became the target of a lawsuit by Imran Awan. Democrats rushed to the barricades in his defense.

“Congress Pays $850,000 to Muslim Aides Targeted in Inquiry Stoked by Trump,” read the November 25, 2020 New York Times headline. According to the story, the previously unreported settlement is one of the largest to resolve discrimination or harassment claims, in this case by people who “lost their jobs and endured harassment in part because of their Muslim faith and South Asian origins.” In this narrative, Awan’s computer capers had little if anything to do with it, and the award doubtless sinks any prospect for a full investigation.

In these conditions, Democrats believed it was safe to bring Becerra back to Washington. He was unqualified to head HHS but for Democrats, Trump Derangement Syndrome, disregard for national security, and ancestry on the Iberian peninsula of Europe (“Latino”) all count as qualifications. Republican Sen. Susan Collins voted to confirm Becerra, the worst possible choice for the people but ideal for the Democrats and their regime of white coat supremacy (WCS).

Under a WCS regime, unelected medical bureaucrats override the people’s constitutional rights and basic freedoms. The nation’s primary white coat supremacist is Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose bio shows no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry. A government bureaucrat since 1968, Fauci has reversed himself on many aspects of the pandemic but now claims people who criticize him “are actually criticizing science.”  In the style of Louis XIV, Fauci claims, “La science, c’est moi.”

This certified megalomaniac is the white coat supremacy fuhrer. With no medical qualifications, and little regard for human life or the law, the misanthropic Xavier Becerra is the perfect choice to command the WCS tactical division.

Americans have grounds to wonder if the HHS sturmtruppen might knock on the doors of the already vaccinated in order to “educate” them in other ways. Becerra’s troops might team up with the FBI, and knock on the doors of some Trump voters, or people who question the 2020 election. Under current conditions, those are signs of domestic terrorism. So if the people thought the HHS troops might knock down some doors it would be hard to blame them.

HHS boss Becerra will doubtless use the campaign to enhance his brand with a view to 2024.  As Trump likes to say, we’ll have to see what happens.

CANADA: Rob Hoogland gets 6 MONTH prison sentence, $30,000 fine~judge rejects plea bargain

Hostile judge rejects Rob Hoogland’s plea agreement with BC Attorney General in “criminal contempt” case for breaking gag order. Sentences Rob to six months in prison and $30,000 fine!

Judge claims that a lesser punishment would “bring the administration of justice into disrepute.”

Bizarre 2-day court proceeding after Rob had pleaded guilty (per plea agreement).

April 16, 2021
ALT TEXT
Rob Hoogland, a British Columbia father trying to protect his daughter from sex-change procedures, takes a last look outside of the Court building before turning himself in on March 16.

The radical transgender agenda targeting children has become a national nightmare in Canada. The education system, the medical establishment, and now the courts are brutally enforcing this lunatic movement.

As we reported earlier Rob Hoogland, a British Columbia father, has been jailed without bail since mid-March. He was to go on trial on April 13. His crime: violating a gag order intended to cover up the gruesome “sex-change” procedures his 15-year-old daughter was undergoing – against his will. The court is now the enforcer for those ghoulish medical practitioners.

Plea bargain announced last week!

However, several days before the trial Rob’s lawyer, Carey Linde, announced that he and the Crown (Attorney General) had reached a plea bargain. On April 13, Rob Hoogland would admit to willfully breaching certain orders of the Supreme Court. He would accept 18 months probation and one month for time spent in custody. Thus, Rob would be released from custody on that day!

When the Court convened on the morning of April 13, everyone figured it would all go pretty quickly. Rob’s friends showed up, and were planning to drive him home soon afterward and celebrate his freedom.

British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Michael Tammen got right to business. He put Rob on the stand, had the clerk read the charges, and asked, “How do you plead?” Rob answered, “Guilty.” The judge asked Rob if he understood that he is giving up his right to a trial. Rob answered, “Yes.”

… But then the judge rejected the deal!

Then, in a shocking (and frankly dishonest) move, Justice Tammen harshly announced that he was rejecting the plea bargain! He felt that Rob’s actions required much greater punishment – certainly more imprisonment – than the plea bargain called for. Otherwise, he said, “It would bring the administration of justice into dispute.” Rob’s friends in the courtroom were aghast.

Tammen clearly wanted to make an example of Hoogland, in case other parents got similar ideas of resisting if this happened to their children. So he opened up discussion between the two opposing lawyers to help him decide how much more punishment to give.

The “sentencing” debate begins

Over the next two days, the “sentencing” debate between the Crown, Carey Linde, and Justice Tammen went on. Tammen was clearly hostile toward Rob and Linde, and much of the time it seemed like the judge was playing the part of a second prosecutor.

ALT TEXT 
Justice Michael Tammen was unbelievably hostile and biased.
ALT TEXT 
Attorney Carey Linde, Rob's lawyer, fought hard for him.

The Crown lawyer, Daniel Pruim, spoke first. He was well prepared. It appeared that he had prior knowledge that the judge would do this.

Describing every breach. The Crown started out by describing in lengthy detail every article and interview that Rob had participated in, and every piece of information that Rob had given out. Tammen was very focused on this, following it closely, and took notes.

Denunciation and deterrence required. The Crown went on to cite numerous cases where a “just cause” didn’t justify breaching court orders. The principles of sentencing demand that “denunciation and deterrence” are needed, and that precedents supported this. A court must “uphold the Rule of Law.”

Victim impact statement. Then the Crown announced that he had a “victim impact statement” from Rob’s daughter about how her father’s actions have harmed her. Rob’s lawyer objected, saying that there is no way to determine if the statement was actually written by one of the LGBT lawyers “supporting” the girl’s case. The statement was not allowed to be read in court, but a quote from it appeared in the Toronto Star newspaper the following day. Many people have since observed that it is unlikely this was written by a 15-year-old:

I am out as transgender only in some parts of my life and it terrifies me that I might be outed as a result of my dad’s actions. It would be very embarrassing to be outed as trans to people who know me only as male. Over and over private stuff about me was published online because of my dad. I have lost my faith that the courts can protect me. That makes me feel really vulnerable.

Judge’s angry outburst against MassResistance. The daughter’s impact statement caused Justice Tammen to let loose an angry outburst against Rob and his lawyer over the fact that MassResistance had been given several key documents by Rob, including the original hospital consent form for sex-change procedures signed by the daughter and mother (but not Rob) – and that MassResistance stubbornly refused to take it down. The judge said that this information was hurting the child, and the fact that the doctors’ names were on it was also a major violation of the gag order.

ALT TEXT 
From the BC Children's Hospital "Gender Clinic" website. This is what Justice Tammen wants desperately to protect from being exposed!

This was a bit unnerving since Carey Linde had previously pointed out that all of this “personal” information was already known in the general community, and that the idea that it “harmed” her was an invention of the prior judge in collaboration with the LGBT lawyers. Moreover, the doctors have widely advertised that they do these procedures, so it is no secret.

Linde phones MassResistance. During the lunch break, Carey Linde telephoned MassResistance to get clarification as to why we weren’t taking down the material. We reminded him that Rob has specifically asked us to post it, and that he later said he was glad that it would be there to educate the world about what is really happening. And we obviously agree this needs to happen.

Rob’s fundraising for legal defense costs. After lunch, the Crown lit into Rob’s “GoGetFunding” page raising money for his legal defense. He noted that Rob has raised over $56,000, and had a photo of himself with his daughter (as a young girl) on that page. Thus, he said, that money was “ill-gotten gains” and should be confiscated in some way. Justice Tammen heartily agreed that Rob was “profiting” off his crime, and said that he would take that into consideration. (It is contemptible that Tammen and the Crown actually believe that an accused person should not be able to raise money to pay for lawyers or related expenses.)

Rob takes the stand. Next, Justice Tammen asked Rob to take the stand and explain why he ignored the court “gag orders.” He said he wanted to tell the world how his daughter was tricked by the school transgender program into deciding she should “transition” to a boy. He said his child was too immature and irresponsible to understand the dangers and risks of cardiovascular disease, bone decalcification, cervical cancer, sterility, botched surgery, and perpetual hormone imbalance - all side effects of experimental hormone therapy. He added that so-called transgender people do not find peace, but continue to contemplate suicide at an alarming rate. He knew it was too late to save his own child, but he felt he HAD to tell his story to save other families from this tragedy.

Justice Tammen was unsympathetic. He was angry that Rob’s full story was still displayed on the Mass Resistance website. He claimed Rob could have told his story without naming his daughter. (Actually, Rob did not ever name her; her name was written on a document).

Comparing Rob to Gandhi, etc. Rob’s lawyer ended the first day with an argument comparing Rob’s civil disobedience to Diogenes, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King. As one person there told us, “It was very unconvincing. We left the court very, very discouraged.”

What the hospital consent form warned about. The next day, Carey Linde wanted to discuss the hospital consent form for the sex-change procedures that the mother and the daughter had signed. The judge angrily said no, because Rob had given it to MassResistance to post. There was a heated exchange over that, and the judge finally relented.

Linde said that the consent form clearly states that the cause of gender dysphoria is unknown. And if the cause of gender dysphoria is unknown, how is the diagnosis and proper treatment determined? He said the consent form also states that the impact of puberty blockers and testosterone are unknown, and that reproductive organs may need to be removed in the future. “How can a child consent to this?” he asked.

Linde said it’s important that the judge understand why Rob did what he did. But Tammen responded by chastising Linde, basically questioning his ability as a lawyer.

Jenn Smith allowed to address the Court with bizarre rant. Near the end of the second day, Linde asked Jenn Smith, a left-wing transgender activist who has supported Rob Hoogland, to address the Court. Jenn Smith is a very strange cross-dresser – a man who wears women’s clothes in public but still refers to himself a man. Jenn Smith has befriended Rob and Carey Linde in this case. The Crown objected to his speaking, but the judge decided to allow it.

Jenn Smith stood up and gave a bizarre rant attempting to explain why Rob talked to MassResistance and other conservative groups. Smith said that Rob suffered “emotional trauma” and had nowhere to turn but to “right-wing grifters and nut jobs,” and that they’re “contaminating Rob’s brain with right-wing propaganda.” He said that this should be a mitigating factor in sentencing.

ALT TEXT 
Jenn Smith (right), a cross-dressing man, is interviewed outside the courthouse by Rebel Media reporter on April 14. Smith continued his rant against MassResistance, and even our Organization Director Arthur Schaper!

The judge seemed pleased to hear bad things about people helping to expose the case. But the Crown objected to that reasoning, saying that Rob has made it clear numerous times that he did this on his own, and is responsible for his actions.

Rob certainly hasn’t appeared to be “in trauma” up until now. In fact, Rob had been very outspoken and enthusiastic about MassResistance and other groups getting the word out for him. In our March 11 video, he said:

We’ve all got to get behind this. I want to thank MassResistance. You guys are one of the leading examples of how we need to fight this. We’re beyond diplomacy on this matter. We’re at war. And people have to wake up. You can’t negotiate with terrorists who are experimenting with our children. That’s why I love what you do at MassResistance because you recognize that.

As Rob was going into the courthouse on March 16 to turn himself in, he was interviewed by Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson and said:

I’m definitely getting the word out in the United States, because that’s where word travels fast. And I can be more candid there than I can be here in Canada, for obvious reasons. I don’t want Canadians to get in trouble. So let the Americans help me in that way.

ALT TEXT 
Robert Hoogland gives an interview with MassResistance via Skype in early 2020.

Rob responds to Jenn Smith’s remarks – even more bizarre! Then the judge asked Rob if he wanted to respond to what Jenn Smith had said. It was really weird to hear how Rob responded this time. It was completely different than what he had testified the previous day.

Rob said that the first day he was incarcerated he was able to reflect on what he’d done, and that he’s regretting his civil disobedience. He said that he had just wanted to help his daughter, not hurt her. He thinks children should have to wait until they’re eighteen. He acknowledges what he did, and regrets it deeply. He said that “in hindsight" he would "navigate things differently." He wants to close this chapter and move on with his life, he said.

Someone who was there wrote, “This feels like a prisoner confessing under duress.” It certainly looks that way to us – and many others. It was surreal. (People who were there have said all this did more harm than good, in their opinion, given Rob’s sudden switch from the day before.)

At that point, the judge concluded the court proceedings and said he would announce the sentence on Friday, April 16.

The sentencing

Judge goes over the “history.” On Friday morning, Judge Tammen started off by going through the history of the case and the various breaches. He mentioned that the previous judge in the case had stated that if Rob referred to his daughter as a girl that it would constitute “family violence” – and Tammen seemed to agree with that.

MassResistance helping expose the horror is “most serious.” Tammen also recounted that Rob stated in interviews that he felt it was important to break the gag order. And Rob “instructed Americans to keep the story alive.” But in particular, Tammen insisted that the “most serious breech and gross violation” was Rob giving MassResistance the hospital “gender clinic” consent form and the hospital’s memo to Rob where they claim the daughter is “mature enough” to decide to have sex-change procedures. (That’s because these documents reveal how horrible all of this really is – something the government wants covered up.)

Thus, more punishment required. Judge Tammen said that agreeing to the plea bargain and merely giving Rob 45 days in prison is inadequate, and would “bring the administration of justice into disrepute.”

Shocking sentence. Tammen sentenced Rob to six months in prison. In addition, he fined Rob $30,000 (from his GoGetFunding legal defense) which Tammen said he is giving to the Ronald McDonald House. The courtroom was stunned. (With time served and other factors, Rob is expected to serve about 4½ months in prison. But one never knows for sure.)

From what we’re already hearing it’s likely that the activism in British Columbia on Rob’s behalf is only just beginning. We’ll keep you informed!

CANADA: GOVERNMENT & ANTIFA PUNISH FATHERS FOR SPEAKING OUT ABOUT FORCED TRANSGENDER DRUGS & MEDICAL PROCEDURES ON CHILDREN

 Canadian Father and "Pronoun Criminal"

A Canadian father has been imprisoned for referring to his daughter as "she". He is being jailed for refusing to participate in the governmentally mandated child abuse and pathological sexualization of his daughter. The government's campaign to 'save' his daughter from a normal and healthy life began at age 7. She is already being given "treatments" which will yield irreversible damage to her body. These events highlight the importance of masculine leadership, such as that of fathers, and perhaps moreso the fact that Canadians need to realize what their country has really become.

Is it just me or has the entire universe of establishment media, politics and Hollywood forgotten that this country has endured an entire year of relentless violent anarchotyranny?

Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters set businesses and churches ablaze, smashed state capitols and laid siege to federal courthouses. They permanently destroyed precious statues and symbols of America's heritage. They assaulted elderly people, stalked and menaced bystanders, taunted and terrorized law enforcement. And they committed murder — dozens of times — in the name of social justice while the powers that be sat idly by.

How conveniently they have all forgotten the grief of Ann Dorn, widow of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, who was slain by George Floyd vigilantes looting a pawn shop he was guarding on June 2, 2020. Ann Dorn condemned the violence during a speech to the Republican National Convention last summer and recounted how she relives "that horror in my mind every single day. My hope is that having you relive it with me now will help shake this country from this nightmare we're witnessing in our cities" and "bring about positive, peaceful change."

Dorn's plea went unheeded. Why? Because riots and invasive protest are the primary means by which the left operates and has always operated.

When they take over government buildings, like 40,000 Democratic union workers did when they stormed Wisconsin's state capitol in 2011 for nearly a month, it's not an insurrection. It's a First Amendment celebration.

When they take over U.S. Senators' offices, like they did during the 2018 Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, it's not sedition. It's "democracy."

When they feel like blocking traffic and shutting down highways, the police don't arrest them. They protect them.

And when they occupy U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities and vandalize federal courthouses — while obstructing homeland security operations, shining lasers in cops' eyes to blind them and hurling bricks at them to maim them — it's not a crime. It's "peaceful protest."

This is not "whataboutism." It's an absolutely necessary and vital backdrop as we seek to make sense of what happened last week in our nation's Capitol. (And isn't it the Left that always urges us to identify "root causes" when their thugs cross the line?) Law-abiding Americans are angry and frustrated precisely because the law has not been equally applied.

Whether we're talking about lockdown rules or mob rules or election rules, the elites and their allies live by one set of rules and govern by another. Hundreds of thousands of peaceful Donald Trump supporters are being smeared by pundits and politicians who have downplayed left-wing lawlessness from Day One of the Trump presidency. Those who protest this injustice are being purged from social media and the public square at warp speed:

—Some 70,000 dissidents on Twitter were summarily purged after being tarred as dangerous conspiracy theorists on Monday.

—Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed Trump supporter who was gunned down by Capitol police last week, has been ruthlessly defamed by blue-checkmarked celebrities on Twitter and labeled a domestic terrorist.

—MAGA moms and their children are being dragged off airplanes by federal jackboots for attending the Jan. 6 rally, while antifa and BLM advocates gloat.

—"Stop the Steal" organizer Ali Alexander and his colleagues have been wiped off Silicon Valley platforms, along with conservative social media company Parler, libertarian Ron Paul, "War Room" host Steve Bannon, "America First" host Nick Fuentes, "Red Elephants" host Vince James, cartoonist Ben Garrison, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, election fraud researcher Ron Watkins, Gen. Michael Flynn, and lawyers Sidney Powell and Lin Wood.

—Trump faces yet another phony impeachment attack despite his explicit call for supporters to "peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard."

Meanwhile, actual convicted domestic terrorists like Black Liberation Army assassin Assata Shakur, Weather Underground killers Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, and May 19th Communist Organizer Susan Rosenberg (a left-wing weapons supplier and insurrectionist pardoned by Bill Clinton and now a board member of the umbrella group overseeing Black Lives Matter) are deified by the media, Hollywood and academia.

Maxine Waters has been cribbing Martin Luther King Jr.'s line about riots being the "language of the unheard" ever since she danced on the ashes of the L.A. riots with Bloods and Crips.

Liberal magazine Slate declared just six months ago in defense of Antifa and BLM anarchotyrannists that "non-violence is an important tool for protest, but so is violence."

There simply cannot be peace and civil order in such a dysfunctional country of double standards and stifled dissent. It is dishonest and harmful to our republic to pretend otherwise.


WAR IN BELGIUM: CORONAVIRUS CURFEW ARREST LEADS TO MASSIVE BLM AND ISLAMIC RIOTS (VIDEOS)

Violent riots led by communist group Black Lives Matter and Islamic supremacists break out in the city of Brussels after the death of Ibrahim, a migrant in Police custody.

The migrant was filming police enforcing coronavirus lockdown measures at a train station. Ibrahim refused to comply with police and their requests to stop filming. Ibrahim fled the scene, but was captured by police and shortly after died, possibly of a heart attack at the station due to drugs he ingested.

Ibrahim’s Arrest

Ibrahima B. was arrested on Saturday, January 9th a little before 7 pm by inspectors from the Brussels North police zone, at the train station in Belgium. Police say they had stopped to check on a group of people who had gathered at the station past curfew. Police believed the group were in violation of the states coronavirus measures.

According to the police, Ibrahim B. fled and was intercepted. However, his family says he was there to take the train to Waterloo, where he lives. According to the family, Ibrahim B. was arrested for filming the police check with his mobile phone.

After a police chase, Ibrahim was transferred to the police station, and suffered an apparent heart attack immediately after arriving. According to media reportsthe migrant ingested drugs that he had in his possession. It was as a result of this that he was said to have felt unwell during his search at the police station. 

“When he arrived at the police station, he lost consciousness,” says the Brussels prosecutor’s office. The officers tried to resuscitate him. The emergency services also arrived quickly, but he died in the hospital around 8.30 pm. The cause of death would have been a heart attack, reported Ibrahim’s sister.

According to the family’s lawyer, they claim police left him on the ground for five minutes, “Those several minutes without worry are crucial moments in which Ibrahim’s life which could have been saved. The officers let him die,” says lawyer Alexis Deswaef. Furthermore, “It was legal for Ibrahima to exercise his fundamental right by filming the police.”

An autopsy and a toxicological examination have been performed on the body. They will reveal whether any violence was used against him and or whether he had a heart attack due to possible drug use. The prosecutor’s office did not want to confirm whether he had drugs in his pocket.

“The deceased young man’s family and his counsel met with the Public Prosecutor this morning to obtain answers to some of their questions,” says the prosecutor spokeswoman,“ and to assure them that all resources are and will being used to provide clarity into what happened.”

Migrant and BLM Riots Break Out

Hours after the family’s meeting, the peaceful protests taking place in Brussels turned violent around 4 pm. Stones, fireworks and other objects were thrown at the police and the Islamic migrant and Black Lives Matter communists shouted “police, murderers”. 

Rioters broke the windows of police cars and set vehicles on fire. The radicals burned down the police station and attacked the car of King Philippe, the current King of Belgium.

Communist Black lives Matter Joins forces with migrants

By coincidence, the Belgian king ended up in the middle of the violence. His car was recognizable to rioters by the number plate ‘1’, which suddenly appeared in the middle of the melee. Police officers escorted the king and his car away from the rioting crowds.

The riot police arrived en masse. Water cannons were used several times against the rioters. Initially, officers tried to send the demonstrators home, but their calls received little response. The organizers of the event’s efforts to calm things down were in vain. Police eventually arrested over 100 rioters and four injured police officers were taken to hospital. 

Minister of Justice Vincent Van Quickenborne tweeted. “Under no circumstances can we accept what happened in Schaerbeek (Municipality in Belgium) today. Investigations are in full swing, ”said the minister. “The rioters will not go free.”

Watch the following videos compiled by RAIR Foundation USA of the riots in Brussels:

Red/Green Axis

As France’s Eric Zemmour has previously stated, BLM and Islamic migrants have united in their collective dream of “beating world capitalism and beating white western countries.” The author points out that despite riots in different countries being staged by BLM and Islamic supremacists, the riots all have the same plan of action and take the same form.

Even the infamous Venezuelan terrorist Carlos The Jackal, a convert to Islam penned a letter to President Obama in 2003 stating, “only a coalition of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States.”

As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, the tactic of leftist and Islamic coordination has a name: the Red/Green Axis: “Communists and Islamic Supremacists have a long history of uniting to destroy their common enemy: those who believe in sovereignty and individual freedom.” In order to achieve their own goals, they use one another until their goals are achieved, and only at that time will they “turn on one another and in the end, fight to destroy the other.”

THREE THINGS AMERICANS MUST DO TO NEUTER THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Three Things Americans Must do to Neuter the Federal Government

BY RENEE NAL

RAIR Foundation USA will be developing these ideas in the coming days and weeks. Please reach out to assist with expertise in any of the above areas or if you want to help in any way at [email protected]

The current situation is dire. Without immediate intervention, America will become a socialist state. RAIR Foundation USA has compiled a list of three very important items for Americans to neuter the federal government. If citizens do not act, America is over.

The founding fathers understood that the nature of government is to expand and the nature of man is to be free. The Constitution was written with these concepts in mind. The entire point of “limited government” and “self rule” was to empower the people, not the elites. The system of checks and balances, enumerated powers in the separate branches of government and the electoral college were all written precisely to stop the government from growing and becoming tyrannical.

With two million employees in the federal government alone, not including the post office, which has approximately 600k employees, does the federal government seem “limited” to you?

The following items are key to stopping the federal government from usurping more power, and are rarely discussed by patriots:

1.) Recall Bad Actors: Americans have a tendency to vote and go on with their lives. Subversive elected officials are free to wreak havoc on America with very little scrutiny. It is time that Americans recall bad people instead of waiting to vote them out. Conversely, pro-America elected officials are often left on their own, fighting every day without support of patriotic Americans. It is time for Americans to become engaged in supporting the good guys and active in recalling the bad guys. Right now, Marxists have infiltrated the highest levels of government. They must be recalled.

2.) States Must Stop Accepting Money from the Federal Government: The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution is so vitally important, but has all but been tossed aside. The power belongs to the states, not the federal government. “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined,” said the “father of the Constitution,” James Madison in Federalist 45. But as the decades wore on, the federal government has not only usurped more and more power, they have become the “daddy” of the states by giving them funding, always with strings attached. The states are now completely dependent to the federal government. It must stop. Americans need to make sure that their states stop taking money from the federal government.

3.) All Legislation Must Include the Authors: While much has been discussed about the intent of the founding fathers, very little is discussed about the intent of legislation today. Members of congress rarely write the legislation they introduce, instead putting forward the agenda of hard left actors who write laws (and regulations) that affect all Americans. Radical groups compose legislation, then bribe elected officials with promises of phone-banking and door-knocking to help them keep their power. This is why elected officials often throw their weight behind bad legislation that Americans do not want. If Americans knew exactly who authored the laws, they would understand the intent behind those laws.

‘White Privilege’ Means No Vaccine for Grandma

Now that a Wuhan coronavirus vaccine is here, the leftists of our media and university systems want to make sure that Caucasians cannot receive it, especially the elderly, who are the most vulnerable. Life is apparently a privilege, and whites already have too much privilege. Thus, things are being "leveled" for fairness.

European Court of Human Rights Dismisses Christian Family’s Lawsuit Over Govt. Seizure of Children

OUR STORY - Bodnariu Family

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

After agreeing last year to hear the case, the European Court of Human Rights has now decided to dismiss a legal challenge filed by a Christian family whose children were seized by Norwegian child welfare agents after the school principal contacted authorities to express concern over the manner in which the children were being raised, including that they were sometimes spanked.

While the court concluded that Marius and Ruth Bodnariu had not availed themselves of possible localized means to obtain vindication after their children were returned, the family says that was not a feasible option for them.

“The decision is a blow to the family, who argued before the European Court of Human Rights that any further remedies in Norway were illusory at best,” Christian Concern outlined in a blog post on Thursday.

“They would not risk further punishment and separation of the family by going back into the system that had so ill-treated them, especially after all of the international media attention the case had garnered. Asking them to go back into the proverbial lion’s den would have been cruel, and something Ruth and Marius Bodnariu would never put their children through,” it explained.

As previously reported, in 2015, Norway’s child welfare agency, Barnevernet, seized the Bodnariu’s two daughters, two sons and then-baby Ezekiel after being informed of concerns about the home life and upbringing of the children.

The two eldest children were reportedly removed from school without their parents' knowledge, and Barnevernet representatives soon also arrived with police at the Bodnariu home, where they seized the remaining children, minus the baby. The organization returned the following day and removed the infant as well when attempts by the Bodnarius to resolve the matter were not successful.

The matter began when the principal of Vevring School contacted the Department of Culture to outline the content of two conversations with the couple’s daughters, which included being occasionally spanked.

The letter was forwarded to Barnevernet, which reached out to the principal. According to reports, the principal also expressed concern that the family’s religious beliefs might stunt the girls’ development — but only requested counseling for the children as she did not believe the Bodnarius were abusive.

[T]he principal stressed that she was only requesting the Barnevernet’s counseling services, as the girls are intelligent and creative, and that she, the principal, doesn’t believe that the girls are being physically abused at home,” Daniel Bodnariu, Marius’ brother, said in a statement in 2016.

“This same principal had previously scolded and categorically forbid one of the Bodnariu girls from singing as a result of the girl singing a Christian song to her schoolmates,” he advised.

But despite the principal’s request for counseling only, the Barnevernet instead pursued proceedings against the parents, alleging that they had abused the children.

“The Barnevernet ordered extensive medical examination of the children, as there was no evidence to support the allegations of physical abuse, but the medical reports emphasized that there was no sign of physical or mental abuse,” Bodnariu stated.

After interviewing the couple’s two daughters, who reportedly conjured up information about their family life — such as that they would be punished if they did not know the Bible from memory, Barnevernet returned and took the rest of the children into government custody, dividing them up into three different foster homes.

In realizing that the seizure was unjust, the matter resulted in protests against Barnevernet around the world, including in Romania, Spain, the United Kingdom and Poland.

Seven months later, in June 2016, the children were returned to their family. The Bodnarius then fled Norway to find freedom in Marius’ homeland of Romania, and Mrs. Bodnariu gave birth to a sixth child.

Attorneys for the family soon filed a complaint before the European Court of Human Rights, stating that Norwegian officials had violated Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects the right to privacy within a family.

While the court originally agreed to hear the case, it has now found the matter to be inadmissible as it believes the situation should have first been addressed in Norway.

Roger Kiska, an attorney with the Christian Legal Centre, said in a video released about the case on Friday that the incident reflects a broken welfare system that could adversely impact any family.

“I think what’s important about this case is that you have a loving family, a Christian family, a gentle family, who has been torn apart by a broken system filled with prejudices, lack of due process [and] a guilty until proven innocent mentality,” he stated.

“I think what they represent is every family out there, that this can happen to anyone.”

As previously reported, Barnevernet also took a young child into custody in 2018 as his parents had been homeschooling him for a time since he had been bullied at school. Leif and Terese Kristiansen had planned on sending their son back to school once they found a better location for him to attend.

According to Ray Skorstad, founder of the legal assistance group Barnets Beste, the government took Kai because they believed the child needed to be in school for “socialization purposes” and thought that the family was “avoiding them.” Following intervention from the Homeschooling Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), the boy was allowed to return home with his parents.

Medical Freedom Activists Plan International COVID-19 Vaccine Protests

Medical Freedom Activists Plan International COVID-19 Vaccine Protests

BY STEVEN NEILL

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/medical-freedom-activists-plan-international-covid-19-vaccine-protests/;

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

On July 23, 2020, environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. debated Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz about the coronavirus vaccine, vaccines in general, and making the vaccine mandatory. Kennedy said during the debate:

It’s not hypothetical that vaccines cause injury and that injuries are not rare. The vaccine courts have paid out four billion dollars over the past three decades. And the threshold for getting back into a vaccine court and getting a judgment — [the Department of Health and Human Services] admits that fewer than one percent of people who are injured ever even get to court.

When talking about the companies producing the vaccines, Kennedy said that each of the four vaccine producers:

Is a convicted serial felon: GlaxoSanofiPfizerMerck. In the past ten years, just in the last decade, those companies have paid 35 billion dollars in criminal penalties, damages, fines, for lying to doctors, for defrauding science, for falsifying science, for killing hundreds of thousands of Americans knowingly.

It requires a cognitive dissonance for people who understand the criminal corporate cultures of these four companies to believe that they’re doing this in every other product that they have, but they’re not doing it with vaccines.

Compared to vaccines’ health risks, the already-questionable health benefits are even more uncertain with the rushed coronavirus vaccine. Because of that, the U.S. government created the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act. This act protects:

individuals and entities (Covered Persons) against any claim of loss caused by, arising out of, relating to, or resulting from the manufacture, distribution, administration, or use of medical countermeasures (Covered Countermeasures), except for claims involving “willful misconduct” as defined in the PREP Act.

This leaves the injured party with only one recourse, applying to the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP). This program, according to NBC, has only paid out about three dozen claims in the last decade. Wayne Rohde, author of the book The Vaccine Court, explains how the CICP works:

In short, if you are injured or have someone killed by one of the new experimental COVID vaccines, expect to pay all of your expenses out-of-pocket because your life is not worth much to the US Government. They are asking the public to sacrifice themselves for “the greater good” to stop a virus that there is not even an accurate test that can identify it. 

To inform as many Americans as possible of the coronavirus vaccine’s potential problems, several medical freedom activists have teamed up with the grassroots organization V is for Vaccine to lead demonstrations in locations across Canada, Australia, the U.K., and all 50 United States. They chose to do the rallies on November 29 because it is the second-busiest travel day across the country.

Founded in 2019 by Joshua Coleman and Olivia Mikos, V is for Vaccine’s goal is

To bypass the mainstream and social media censorship and educate the public on important truths about the vaccine program, truths that everyone has the right to know before making the decision to vaccinate.

The V is for Vaccine formula consists of giant signs, irrefutable facts, simple and uniform messaging, eager activists, and a good dose of flair. From their first demonstration at Disneyland with only 14 people, the campaign has expanded to all 50 states and three countries.

In these strictly peaceful rallies (unlike BLM, they don’t take detours to Walmart, Target, or other stores), marchers are encouraged to have a dialog with police and others to inform the public about these vaccines’ dangers.

The New American contacted V is for Vaccine with a few questions about the event, and co-founder Olivia Mikos responded:

TNA: How many cities are hosting demonstrations?

Olivia: All 50 states, the U.K., Canada, and Australia are involved. Some states are only doing one city, while others are demonstrating in multiple. 

TNA: Are there local chapters or networks of activists?

Olivia: V is for Vaccine does not have local chapters. But our template is designed so that any activist, group, or organization can utilize our format and messaging and organize demonstrations on their own. We also organize events in collaboration with other independent health freedom groups from all over. For downloads and tutorials, people can go to visforvaccine.com.

TNA: Is this event simply to alert people about the dangers of vaccines, or will there be elements of protesting the lock-downs as well?

Olivia: This is event is primarily focused on vaccine risks.

TNA: What are your goals for the march?

Olivia: This event raises awareness regarding little known risks and facts of vaccination and empowers people to make an informed decision. 

TNA: Are you actively seeking to work with other groups, or is this a solo effort?

Olivia: We work with any and all medical freedom groups but provide a uniform template and messaging for everyone to utilize. The goal is to break through the social conditioning with easy to understand and irrefutable facts. Our strategy relies on keeping the messaging simple, bold, uniform, and factual. Anyone wanting to utilize this template can get involved.

 

MARXIST HYPOCRITE: MASKLESS POPE FRANCIS PRAISES COMMUNIST BLM PROTESTS, YET SLAMS LOCKDOWN DEMONSTRATORS (VIDEO)

Pope Francis is condemning citizens for protesting the same tyrannical Chinese coronavirus mandates that he has personally been ignoring for months. Meanwhile, the Pope praises the “healthy indignation” seen in the communist-created Black Lives Matter riots ostensibly over the death of George Floyd.

In his new book – Pope Francis, widely considered to be a heretic by practicing Catholics – the Pontiff condemns those who do not blindly follow the economy-killing and freedom-crushing lockdowns imposed by partisan, power-hungry leaders:

“Some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions – as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom…”

The Marxist pope condemned governments who have chose not to lockdown their citizens, shut down businesses and destroy their economies stating: “Those governments have mortgaged their people”.

The pope has long dreamed of redistributing the world’s wealth, a dog-whistle for class war which would result in socialism.

For the past several months the Pope himself has been criticized for refusing to wear a coronavirus mask amid a supposed rise in cases in Italy and the rest of Europe. The Vatican even released a statement acknowledging that the 83-year-old pontiff, who is missing a portion of one of his lungs, is in a high risk category and are working on the Pontiff to take proper precautions.

The pope has also been criticized for not using sufficient amounts hand sanitizer during public appearances with audiences and for not keeping sufficient distance from the event attendees.

Just last month, at a Vatican event the mask-less pope disregarded coronavirus measures. Despite the fact that it was declared mandatory to wear one both outdoors and indoors in the Vatican City, the Pontiff stood along side prelates, kissed the hands of newly ordained priests and talking with mask-less guests. Ironic that in Pope Francis’ new book, he slammed those who claim “that being forced to wear a mask is an unwarranted imposition by the state”.

Watch the following video of the Pope in Paul VI Hall at the Vatican greeting his faithful flock without adhering to any of Italy’s mandatory mandates in a closed space.

This past Monday, Pope Francis once again disregarded all coronavirus mandates and met with NBA players to discuss their so-called social justice efforts with the dangerous Black Lives Matter communist group. Ironic that in Pope Francis book, he slammed those who claim “that being forced to wear a mask is an unwarranted imposition by the state”.

Watch Pope Francis meet and greet with NBA players who all disregard coronavirus mandates:

While the pope continues to support communist-created demonstrations, Catholics in France have been demonstrating weekly to reinstatement their masses. The Pontiff has not offered his support to Catholics suffering assaults on their religious liberties by their government but instead, criticized those demonstrating for government to allow their Churches to open.

GERMANY & COVID-19 ILLEGAL MANDATES: Police fire water cannons at Berlin demonstrators after they ignored calls to wear face masks

Police Use Water Cannons Against Anti-Lockdown Protesters in Berlin

German government trying to codify social distancing, mandatory mask wearing.

Police in Berlin used water cannons on anti-lockdown protesters who were demonstrating near the Brandenburg Gate against new COVID-19 laws they claim are unconstitutional.

The new law would codify current social distancing requirements, mandate mask wearing and increase the punishment for those flouting the rules.

The measures are expected to pass both lower and then upper houses of parliament, but that didn’t stop thousands of protesters defying a government ban to descend on the Bundestag in opposition to the law.

Police turned water cannons on demonstrators as the crowd booed while LRAD sound cannons were also utilized.

However, as the videos show, the size of the gathering was far too large for the water cannons to have much effect.

German chancellor Angela Merkel is attempting to make the country’s current “soft lockdown” more draconian, but she does not have the backing of enough state leaders and has delayed the move.

Merkel wants people to self-isolate at home for 7 days even of they only display symptoms of an ordinary cold while limiting social interactions to a maximum of two households.

The chancellor is pursuing the new measures despite Germany’s Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development Gerd Muller warning that the lockdown will end up killing more people than coronavirus itself.

DOJ Defends Church’s Pandemic Lawsuit Against D.C.

DOJ Blasts D.C. Mayor for 'Silencing' Churches:

'There Is No Pandemic Exception to the Constitution'

The Department of Justice on Friday announced it had filed a statement of interest in the case filed by Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., against the District of Columbia and Mayor Muriel Bowser. The 853-member church has a strong religious conviction that it must meet weekly and in person, as a single body, for worship. As a result of Mayor Bowser’s onerous COVID-19 orders (first capping worship services at 10 people and now 100), Capitol Hill Baptist Church (CHBC) has not been able to meet together in the District since March. As a temporary measure, they’ve been meeting in a field in Virginia.

The congregation had asked the mayor for permission to meet at the 45,000-plus-seat Robert F. Kennedy Stadium, which would give them ample room to social distance, but the city denied the application for a waiver, and also the church’s appeals. (More background here.)

Finally, on Sept. 22, the church filed a lawsuit and a request for a temporary restraining order asking that they be allowed to hold outdoor worship services in the District of Columbia, citing the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. CHBC says the mayor has double standards—one for churches and another for large gatherings of protesters. The lawsuit pointed out that the mayor herself has attended some of these gatherings.

“The right to free exercise of religion and the right to protest are both enshrined in the First Amendment of the Constitution,” said Eric Dreiband, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, in a press release. “We are a nation dedicated to freedom of conscience and freedom of expression. The District of Columbia has, unfortunately, neglected these rights. The Justice Department is committed to defending both of these fundamental freedoms and in supporting all Americans’ rights to worship as they choose.”

The statement of interest is part of Attorney General William P. Barr’s initiative, announced April 27, directing the DOJ to “review governmental policies around the country to ensure that civil liberties are protected during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“While a local government has significant discretion to decide what measures to adopt to meet a public health threat, the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution requires that, whatever level of restrictions it adopts, government must treat religious gatherings the same as comparable nonreligious gatherings, absent the government meeting strict scrutiny, that is, proving that it has a compelling governmental interest pursued through the least restrictive means,” the DOJ argued in the statement of interest. “Similarly, the Free Speech Clause forbids the government from discriminating against certain speech while privileging other speech with a viewpoint favored by the government, unless it meets strict scrutiny.”

The District of Columbia is also bound by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), the Justice Department said. RFRA “requires that any government action imposing a substantial burden on religious exercise meet strict scrutiny.” The city’s current approach to COVID-19 restrictions “has the effect of treating some forms of protected First Amendment activity differently than other forms of comparable activity and in so doing singles out religious exercise for differential treatment.” CHBC has demonstrated that its lawsuit is likely to succeed on merits, the statement of interest noted.

John MacArthur’s Religious Freedom Case Is Headed to Trial

In its filing, the DOJ said that while the United States “has a strong interest, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, in ensuring the development and maintenance of the best possible public health strategies to combat the virus and protect the people of the United States from harm,” that interest “must be balanced with constitutional liberties.”

“Although the precise legal tests may change based on the specific restriction at issue, the bottom line remains the same: there is no pandemic exception to the Constitution and our fundamental rights,” the DOJ lawyers declared. [Emphasis added] “Individual rights set forth in the Constitution are always operative and restrain government action.”

Mayor Bowser and the District of Columbia clearly don’t agree. Protesters who have the “correct” political views are allowed to gather in the streets with impunity—and without anyone in the mayor’s office, the MSM, or Democratic Party saying boo about it—while churches are told to close their doors and forsake their religious teachings. The aforementioned leftists have no use for those “icky” Christians who insist on obeying the Bible, but, ah, the protesters and rioters—they, and they alone, are worthy of robust constitutional protections amid the pandemic. That hypocrisy is what CHBC takes issue with. The Justice Department is insisting that the discrimination stop.

People need Jesus during these tumultuous times. Christians need to be in church, where they can obey biblical mandates to hear the Word of God preached, partake of Communion, and fellowship together. A few brave churches are wading into the fray, asking only to be treated the way other groups are and for the government to abide by the First Amendment and RFRA. William Barr and Trump’s Department of Justice are making it clear that government “shall make no law… prohibiting the free exercise” of religion. Period. Not even during a pandemic.

CALIFORNIA WAGING WAR ON CHURCHES 
CALIFORNIA WAGING WAR ON CHURCHES (Friday Church News Notes, August 28, 2020, www.wayoflife.org, [email protected]
wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - If you want to know the future of America if Democrats are ever in full control, just 
take a look at California, where the Democrats control the governorship, both houses of the legislature, every 
statewide office, and the leadership of major cities. (When one party controls the office of governor, the state House, 
and the state Senate, that is called a trifecta. Currently, there are 21 Republican trifectas and 15 Democrat trifectas.)
For example, their mindless commitment to Green Energy has resulted in third-world type brownouts across the 
state this summer. Their homosexual rights agenda has silenced free speech. Their clueless homeless policies have 
trashed formerly beautiful cities. Their public schools are removing the names of the nation’s Founding Fathers and 
brainwashing children in Marxist doctrine. That’s a very short list. Oh yes, and they are using the coronavirus 
situation to attack churches. I believe they will back off eventually and leave the churches alone for now, but only 
because (humanly speaking) they don’t have full power. The following is excerpted from “California’s All-Out War 
on Church Worship Intensifies,” PJ Media, Aug. 24, 2020: “California Governor Gavin Newsom and county leaders 
are escalating the state’s war on church worship services, dragging pastors into court and demanding thousands 
of dollars in fines for illegally singing and holding indoor worship services. ... The state is armed with Newsom’s 
no-worship order and subpoenas. ... Liberty Counsel’s Founder Mat Staver says Newsom’s worship ban is clearly 
unconstitutional. ‘The same governor who encourages mass protests, bans all worship and is now fining churches 
for their right to assemble and worship. The same governor who says the church can meet for secular services, 
bans the church from having religious worship. This unconstitutional hostility against religious worship must end.’ 
Newsom has issued a rule against singing and chanting--even in worship in private homes. Then, he outlawed 
church worship. ... The pastor of Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Ventura County, Rob McCoy, was in court on Friday 
and fined $3,000 for holding three socially distanced worship services each Sunday on August 9th and 16th. ... 
McCoy was ready to go to jail on Sunday if need be. Senator Ted Cruz sent a supportive tweet, letting California l
eaders know he’s watching. ‘Thx for standing up for the flock and We the People! The bullies won’t win. We are 
with you, Pastor.’ In Santa Clara, county officers sent in agents to spy on North Valley Baptist Church, according to 
documents the county gave to the court. That church has been fined $10,000 for illegally singing in two worship 
services. Singing. ... In Los Angeles County on Monday, megachurch Pastor John McArthur of Grace Community 
Church went to court for a fourth time to fight the governor’s ban on worship. [The county is seeking $20,000 in 
damages. On August 25, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff refused the county’s request to grant 
a temporary restraining order against the church’s services.] McArthur issued a declaration on Monday, saying it’s 
clear that the County thinks it’s OK to let ‘congregants to gather to worship the Lord in parking lots, in parks, or 
perhaps beaches--but never in any church. From Grace Community Church’s perspective, this is nonsensical, and 
we view it as a direct ban on engaging in the worship which our faith requires.’” The previous report did not 
mention Harvest Church of Pasadena, Calif. “Last week, Pasadena’s chief assistant city prosecutor sent Harvest 
Church Pastor Che Ahn a letter, threatening fines and up to one year in jail for anyone who attends a future service
. [The letter, dated Aug. 13, reads:] ‘This letter is to remind you that violations of these orders are criminal in 
nature. Each day in violation is a separate violation and carries with it a potential punishment of up to one year in 
jail and a fine for each violation. ... Any violations in the future will subject your church, owners, administrators, 
operators, staff, and parishioners to the above-mentioned criminal penalties as well as the potential closure of your
Church.’ ... Liberty Counsel founder and Chairman Mat Staver says, ‘These actions of the City of Pasadena and 
Gov. Gavin Newsom are akin to repressive foreign regimes, not America where the First Amendment guarantees 
freedom of religion’” (“Pasadena Threatens Church,” Christian Headlines, Aug. 20, 2020).

FACEBOOK CRACKS DOWN ON ANTIFA AND QANON
FACEBOOK CRACKS DOWN ON ANTIFA AND QANON (Friday Church News Notes, August 28, 2020, www.wayoflife.
org, [email protected], 866-295-4143) - Facebook has taken down Antifa and affiliated anarchist groups. 
“Facebook explicitly sought to disrupt Antifa’s operations and said it restricted 1,400 hashtags related to the 
militant leftists and tore down 520 pages and 160 ads. Facebook’s crackdown on Antifa is a harbinger of things to 
come, as the company said it has begun changing its policies to more aggressively go after militia groups 
supporting violent protests. ... Facebook’s policy shift takes aim at the radical organizations’ funding, their ability 
to attract new followers, and the visibility of their content. ... By publicizing its actions against Antifa, Facebook 
has called attention to its more aggressive content moderation approach as affecting all political ideologies” 
(“Facebook cracks down,” The Washington Times, Aug. 20, 2020). At the same time, Facebook has “removed 790 
QANON groups and imposed restrictions on an additional 1,950 QAnon groups on its platform and 10,000 accounts
on Instagram.” QAnon is a hodgepodge of conspiracy theories based on enigmatic reports published by an 
anonymous person known as “Q” who allegedly has access to ultra top-secret information. There is no evidence 
that “Q” is anyone other than some goofball with too much time on his hands having a lark, but QAnon believers 
see Q’s publications as “breadcrumbs” of evidence for their enlightenment. There are fragments of truth, of course,
as in all such things, but largely it is a will-o’-the-wisp world of inscrutable poetry, numerology, secret signals, etc. 
An example of a Q message is this: “Think SC vote to confirm (coming). No Name action. Every dog has its day. 
Enjoy the show.” It is as murky and meaningless as a Nostradamus prophecy. QAnon is an Alice Wonderland in 
which nothing is solid, nothing is sure, nothing means what it seems to mean. The main theme is that presidents 
before Trump were part of a cabal of “deep-state” international evil operators who control America and the world 
(the media, politicians, Hollywood), operating death squads and pedophile rings and a great many other secret 
things. Trump was chosen by military generals to run for president to destroy this cabal, which he will supposedly 
do in a purge called “The Storm” (in which tens of thousands of deep state operatives, including Hilly Clinton, will 
be arrested and subjected to military tribunals, etc.). Trump supposedly flashes secret signals to QAnon insiders. 
One of the theories is that John. R. Kennedy, Jr., and his wife faked their own plane crash deaths and went 
undercover to work with Trump. QAnon is associated with a hodgepodge of conspiracies pertaining to Covid-19, 
9-11, UFOs, 5G technology and mind control, etc. It is as nutty as a fruitcake. While a lot of people are attracted 
to such things and are true believers, a lot of the followers are doubtless just entertaining themselves like “Q” is. 
To any Q followers in Bible-believing churches, we would say, you don’t need Q; you have the infallible Word of 
God! Stop wasting your time chasing will-o’-the-wisp in a rabbit hole and become a serious Bible student and 
disciple of Jesus Christ. And to Facebook and other social media companies, we would say, by all means ban 
violent speech and pornography and pedophilia and such things, but you should not be censors of speech that is 
legal under law. Allegedly nutty or not, it should be none of your business. Liberals and leftists, et al, have plenty 
of their own fake news and conspiratorial nuttiness. Do you want someone censoring your free speech?

THE U.S. BILL OF RIGHTS DO NOT GRANT FREEDOM FOR SUBVERSIVE SPEECH 
AND ACTION
THE U.S. BILL OF RIGHTS DO NOT GRANT FREEDOM FOR SUBVERSIVE SPEECH AND ACTION (Friday Church News 
Notes, August 28, 2020, www.wayoflife.org, [email protected], 866-295-4143) - In 1950, the U.S. Supreme 
Court, in Dennis v. United States, ruled that Eugene Dennis, General Secretary of the Communist Party USA, did 
not have a First Amendment right to free speech if his goal was to overthrow the Constitution. President Dwight 
Eisenhower agreed: “The Bill of Rights contains no grant of privilege for a group of people to destroy the Bill of 
Rights. A group--like the Communist conspiracy--dedicated to the ultimate destruction of all civil liberties, cannot 
be allowed to claim civil liberties as its privileged sanctuary from which to carry on subversion of the Government” 
(“Eisenhower on Communism,” Time magazine, Oct. 13, 1952).

TRUMP THE “MOST PRO-GAY PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY”
TRUMP THE “MOST PRO-GAY PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY” (Friday Church News Notes, August 28, 2020, 
www.wayoflife.org, [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Grenell: ‘Trump Is Most 
Pro-Gay President,” CNSNews.com, Aug. 21, 2020: “In a video distributed by the Log Cabin Republicans, former 
Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell states that Trump is the ‘most pro-gay president in 
American history.’ In a Twitter response to the video, Trump declared, ‘My great honor!!!’ Grenell, who is gay, 
served as the U.S. ambassador to Germany (2018-20) and as Acting Director of National Intelligence (2/20/20 - 
5/26/20) under President Trump. Log Cabin Republicans ‘is the nation’s largest Republican organization dedicated 
to representing LGBT conservatives and allies,’ according to its website. In the video, Grenell, among other things, 
states, ‘I know firsthand that President Trump is the strongest ally that gay Americans have ever had in the White 
House. Donald Trump is the first president in American history to be pro-gay marriage from his first day in office.’”

BLACK LIVES MATTER CHURCH BURNED DOWN BY BLACK LIVES MATTER RIOTERS
BLACK LIVES MATTER CHURCH BURNED DOWN BY BLACK LIVES MATTER RIOTERS(Friday Church News Notes, 
August 28, 2020, www.wayoflife.org, [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Black 
Lives Matter Church,” Reformation Charlotte, Aug. 24, 2020: “A church that celebrated the Black Lives Matter 
movement has been burnt to the ground by, well, Black Lives Matter rioters. After the shooting of another black 
man in Wisconsin last night--an incident that, unsurprisingly, we have very little details on at this point--rioters 
took to the streets of Kenosha to receive their ‘reparations’ by looting stores, burning down buildings, and creating,
once again, complete and total chaos in the streets. And in order for them to receive justice, they have to destroy 
anything and everything in their path--and that included one church that celebrated Black Lives Matter. The 
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, ‘A little after 3 a.m., the fire had spread to the Bradford Community Church, 
the marquee of which had read Black Lives Matter before being incinerated.’”
