Meanwhile, Biden’s handlers are planning to send massive amounts of money to the Islamic Republic of Iran, which will use it to obtain new weapons for the Houthis and other jihadis.

“US Navy seizes weapons in Arabian Sea likely bound for Yemen,” The New Arab, May 9, 2021

The US Navy announced Sunday it seized an arms shipment of thousands of assault weapons, machines [sic] guns and sniper rifles hidden aboard a ship in the Arabian Sea, apparently bound for Yemen to support the country’s Houthi rebels.

An American defense official told The Associated Press that the Navy’s initial investigation found the vessel came from Iran, again tying the Islamic Republic to arming the Houthis despite a United Nations arms embargo. Iran’s mission to the UN did not immediately respond to a request for comment, though Tehran has denied in the past giving the rebels weapons.

The seizure, one of several amid the yearslong war in Yemen, comes as the US and others try to end a conflict that spawned one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. The arms shipment, described as sizeable, shows that the war may still have far to run.

The guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey discovered the weapons aboard what the Navy described as a stateless dhow, a traditional Mideast sailing ship, in an operation that began Thursday in the northern reaches of the Arabian Sea off Oman and Pakistan. Sailors boarded the vessel and found the weapons, most wrapped in green plastic, below deck.

When laid out on the deck of the Monterey, the scale of the find came into focus. Sailors found nearly 3,000 Chinese Type 56 assault rifles, a variant of the Kalashnikov.

They recovered hundreds of other heavy machine guns and sniper rifles, as well as dozens of advanced, Russian-made anti-tank guided missiles. The shipments also included several hundred rocket-propelled grenade launchers and optical sights for weapons.

The Navy’s Mideast-based 5th Fleet did not identify where the weapons originated, nor where they were going. However, an American defense official said the weapons resembled those of other shipments interdicted bounded for the Houthis.

Based on interviews with the crew and material investigated on board, the sailors determined the vessel came from Iran, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.

“After all illicit cargo was removed, the dhow was assessed for seaworthiness, and after questioning, its crew was provided food and water before being released,” the 5th Fleet said in a statement.

The seizure marks just the latest in the Arabian Sea or Gulf of Aden involving weapons likely bound to Yemen. The seizures began in 2016 and have continued intermittently throughout the war, which has seen the Houthis fire ballistic missiles and use drones later linked to Iran. Yemen is awash with small arms that have been smuggled into poorly controlled ports over years of conflict.

This recent seizure appeared to be among the biggest. Tim Michetti, an investigative researcher who studies the illicit weapon trade, also said the shipment bore similarities to the others.

“The unique blend of materiel recovered by the USS Monterey appears to be consistent with the materiel from previous interdictions, which have been linked to Iran,” he said….

The coronavirus compliance army joins Islamic and Marxist groups which do not tolerate any contrary opinions or independent thoughts.

Left-wing outrage ensued after more than 50 well-known German actors created short video clips criticizing the federal government’s coronavirus measures and the media’s position on them. The videos all hashtagged with #allesdichtmachen (seal everything) were sometimes cynical, sometimes ironic, and sometimes sarcastic.

Despite the overwhelmingly positive reaction by prominent leaders and millions of German citizens, relentless calls by the left-wing political establishment and media to cancel the actors have dominated the news cycle.

Former member of the Austrian parliament and party chairman Gerald Grosz supported the actor’s campaign and slammed the media and the political tyrants’ targeting of differing opinions,

In other words, forced by the media and the political establishment to collectively enter the community of political lepers, who have no right to freedom of expression, who have been declared untouchables, whose thinking, speaking and ultimately even their existence, like the virus, must be neutralized.

Whether you are an average person or a famous actor, explains Grosz, no one is immune to the left-wing coronavirus cancel mob,

And now it hits 50 actors, their reputation, their right to freedom of expression, and their criticism, presented in any case artistically and with intellectual honesty, are being robbed thereof. And we see that no one is immune from being at the mercy of this new fascist dictatorship of opinion.

In a growing list of totalitarian hive-mind Lynch mobs, the coronavirus compliance army seeks to damage anyone for failure to conform to whatever measures are imposed by left-wing authorities, despite any science proving their effectiveness. This coronavirus army joins Islamic and Marxist groups which do not tolerate any contrary opinions or independent thoughts.

Anyone who doesn’t scream Heil Corona, doesn’t take the knee before the Virus, is no longer a good person. Every critic of this corona policy can with hatred and agitation be doused with the slop bucket of contempt.

And is consequently, in his professional existence, yes, even in his social status, declared an outlaw.

As Grosz states, “For truthfulness and righteousness, in this 21st century, you need courage, thick skin, independence, and a fast horse!”

Watch the powerful video by Gerald Grosz:

Video Translation

Jan Josef Liefers, Nina Proll, Manuel Rubey and 47 other well-known actors and actresses from German-speaking countries, all of whom have hitherto been politically “unsuspicious”, after their criticism of the no-alternative lockdown policy, also because of their dismay at the hopelessness of their own profession find themselves overnight in the circle of supposed right-wing extremists, neo-Nazis, corona deniers.


In other words, forced by the media and the political establishment to collectively enter the community of political lepers, who have no right to freedom of expression, who have been declared untouchables, whose thinking, speaking and ultimately even their existence, like the virus, must be neutralized.


Resistance to the erosion of basic rights, criticism of the divisions in society, disapproval of this continued destruction of the pillars of our existence are generally qualified as lateral thinking, anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, right-wing extremist primitiveness of the mob condemned to speechlessness.


Anyone who does not, day in and day out, flaunt the collective panic and hysteria openly and for all to see, who does not sing daily the song of the collective suicide of our society, who is not compliant and subservient to every contradictory measure of an idiotic, even insane policy, is a pariah.


And is consequently, in his professional existence, yes, even in his social status, declared an outlaw.


Anyone who doesn’t scream Heil Corona, doesn’t take the knee before the Virus, is no longer a good person. Every critic of this corona policy can with hatred and agitation be doused with the slop bucket of contempt.


Family liability included!


The judges who, in this newly resurrected block warden period, judge the rebellious delinquents and expose them to public pillory, are precisely those who only on Sundays spoke up against hatred and agitation and prejudice, always and only for the good and the true.


Sunday Democrats. And now it hits 50 actors, their reputation, their right to freedom of expression and their criticism, presented in any case artistically and with intellectual honesty, are being robbed thereof. And we see that no one is immune from being at the mercy of this new fascist dictatorship of opinion.


Everyone, and really everyone, no matter where they stand politically, overnight, in an updated Nazi corner, can end up as a Corona denier.


For truthfulness and righteousness, you need, in this 21st century, courage, thick skin, independence and a fast horse!

Biden HHS Lays Groundwork for Chemical Castration of Kids

BY TYLER O'NEIL

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2021/05/10/biden-hhs-lays-the-groundwork-for-the-chemical-castration-of-children-n1445710;

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

On Monday, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) laid the groundwork for forcing doctors and hospitals to perform transgender surgery in the name of fighting “discrimination.” HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine (a biological male who identifies as a woman) announced that HHS would adopt the Orwellian redefinition of “sex” to force transgender ideology in the medical field, mainstreaming the arguable chemical castration of children.

“The Supreme Court has made clear that people have a right not to be discriminated against on the basis of sex and receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation. That’s why today HHS announced it will act on related reports of discrimination,” Becerra announced in a statement. He cited the case Bostock v. Clayton County (2020), where the Court wrongly decided that Title VII’s prohibition of discrimination on the basis of sex applies to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

“Fear of discrimination can lead individuals to forgo care, which can have serious negative health consequences,” Becerra argued. “It is the position of the Department of Health and Human Services that everyone – including LGBTQ people – should be able to access health care, free from discrimination or interference, period.”

RecommendedBiden Tries to Resurrect HHS Rule Forcing Catholic Doctors to Perform Transgender Surgery

Levine framed the issue as a matter of health care access for regular maladies like a broken bone or a cancer screening.

“The mission of our Department is to enhance the health and well-being of all Americans, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation,” Levine said (emphasis original). “All people need access to healthcare services to fix a broken bone, protect their heart health, and screen for cancer risk. No one should be discriminated against when seeking medical services because of who they are.”

Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project, exposed this deceptive messaging.

“Make no mistake: the policy announced by HHS today is not about ‘fix[ing] a broken bone’ or ‘screen[ing] for cancer risk.’ No American was being denied access to these treatments for identifying as ‘LGBTQ.’ Rather, this policy is really about forcing hospitals and medical professionals to adhere to leftist ideology regarding sexuality and gender—and in particular to provide sex-change procedures to all comers, including children,” Schilling warned.

Schilling noted that in March, Sweden’s Karolinska University Hospital, which treats minors experiencing gender dysphoria (the persistent condition of identifying with the gender opposite one’s biological sex), announced it would not provide “puberty-blocking” drugs or cross-sex hormones to children under the age of 16. Schilling also cited Britain’s High Court ruling protecting children from such chemical interventions on the grounds that minors cannot consent to procedures that may make them infertile.

“Yet, it is now apparently the policy of the U.S. government that such treatments must be given to children or else healthcare institutions risk losing federal funding and being shut down,” Schilling lamented. “This is a travesty and must be opposed. Lawmakers in Congress and in the states should follow the lead of Arkansas and act to protect the health and well-being of children as well as the conscience rights of medical professionals. Voters will be watching.”

RecommendedBiden HHS Nominee Defended Subjecting Kids to Chemical Castration

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito warned about threats to the medical field from the ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County.

“Healthcare benefits may emerge as an intense battleground under the Court’s holding,” Alito warned in a scathing dissent. “Transgender employees have brought suit under Title VII to challenge employer-provided health insurance plans that do not cover costly sex reassignment surgery.”

“Such claims present difficult religious liberty issues because some employers and healthcare providers have strong religious objections to sex reassignment procedures, and therefore requiring them to pay for or to perform these procedures will have a severe impact on their ability to honor their deeply held religious beliefs,” Alito added.

The Obama administration interpreted Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) — which prohibits certain forms of discrimination in health care — to force Roman Catholic hospitals and doctors to perform transgender surgeries, in violation of their consciences and their interpretation of the Hippocratic oath.

Catholic hospitals will not perform surgeries that remove healthy biological functions, such as reproduction unless such treatments are necessary to solve a worse malady. Some doctors have warned that even the cross-sex hormones — the less invasive “treatment” — give healthy people a disease. The actual surgery often involves sterilizing a patient for life. Mandating such “treatments” would force doctors to carry out procedures that they believe involve harm to a patient, thus violating the Hippocratic oath.

RecommendedAlito: Court’s ‘Preposterous’ Trans Ruling Threatens Religion, Speech, Privacy, and Safety

In Religious Sisters of Mercy v. Azar (2021), a federal court in North Dakota protected Catholic hospitals from the Obamacare transgender surgery mandate, but Becerra has moved to defend the mandate.

The HHS directive Becerra issued on Monday pledges that HHS’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) “will comply with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act… and all other legal requirements.” However, President Joe Biden supports the Equality Act, which would remove the religious freedom law’s protections in cases involving claims of discrimination against LGBT people.

While the HHS directive makes no mention of minors, Schilling was correct to warn that this move bodes ill for health care issues involving children. Levine has previously supported “treatments” to block children from going through “the wrong puberty,” and he refused to reverse his support for what amounts to the chemical castration of children.

While the Biden administration moves to force transgender ideology in medicine, there is no evidence that transgender surgery improves the mental health outcomes of gender dysphoric people. Men and women who formerly identified as transgender and underwent surgery have grown to reject transgender identity and lament the damage they did to their own bodies.

Recommended5 Ways Joe Biden Attacked Americans’ Fundamental Rights in His First 100 Days

While Levine may frame this order in terms of fixing a broken bone or getting cancer screenings, Americans should see through this charade. Fighting “discrimination” against LGBT people involves forcing transgender ideology on the health care profession, even forcing doctors to violate the Hippocratic oath and perhaps even mandating chemical castration for gender-confused children.

Vatican Invites Abortion Advocate Chelsea Clinton To Talk About ‘Health’ And The ‘Soul’

Vatican Invites Abortion Advocate Chelsea Clinton To Talk About ‘Health’ And The ‘Soul’

BY EVITA DUFFY

The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture is set to host Chelsea Clinton, Anthony Fauci, Deepak Chopra, and others for a May conference to explore the “mind, body, and soul” and its role in health care.

The Vatican Council for Culture and the Cura Foundation and the Science and Faith (STOQ) Foundation are partnering together to host “the world’s leading physicians, scientists, leaders of faith, ethicists, patient advocates, policymakers, philanthropists and influencers to engage in powerful conversations on the latest breakthroughs in medicine, health care delivery and prevention.”

Speakers for the virtual conference are the world’s elites. Those picked to lecture on health and the soul include CEOs of large pharmaceutical companies, including Moderna and Pfizer, and former supermodel Cindy Crawford, English primatologist Jane Goodall, Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry, and CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Speaker Chelsea Clinton is a high-profile abortion advocate, like her mother and father, Hillary and Bill Clinton. Chelsea labels the pro-life movement as an “anti-choice movement,” and is an outspoken supporter of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S.

In 2018, Chelsea spoke at a “Rise up for Roe” event in New York City, a meeting organized by the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League and Planned Parenthood to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. During her address, she glowingly credited legal abortion for adding trillions of dollars to the U.S. economy.

“American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy,” Clinton stated. “The net, new entrance of women — that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973.”

Chelsea is also Vice President of the Clinton Foundation, an organization riddled with controversy and corruption, and a supporter of global pro-abortion initiatives.

The Catholic Church publicly professes that life begins at conception and abortion is a case of direct killing of an innocent human being — a violation of the rights of the youngest members of our society and the human family.”

In fact, the Catholic Church has been a leading advocate for the right to life for hundreds of years. “Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law,” reads the Catholic Catechism.

There is no mention of Clinton’s anti-life stance on the Vatican’s website, she is simply identified as “vice chair, Clinton Foundation.” The Church is actively elevating Clinton, who vocally advocates for a practice that harms mothers and kills innocent children, as an authority on the “mind, body, and soul.”

The conference will take place May 6-8, and “will be moderated by renowned journalists, who will explore the role of religion, faith and spirituality, and the interplay of the mind, body, and soul – and, ultimately, search for areas of convergence between the humanities and the natural sciences.”

The “renowned” journalists include Katie Couric, Richard Lui, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Amy Robach, Robin Roberts, and Meredith Vieira.

“Together we will focus on advances in medical innovation and the creation of healthier communities and seek to catalyze new, interdisciplinary approaches and partnerships to improve health and wellbeing, as well as understand human uniqueness,” the Vatican said.

Canadian Pastor Swarmed and Arrested by ‘SWAT’ Team for ‘Inciting’ People to Attend Church

The last time we saw Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski he was seen on video chasing cops out of his church and calling them Nazis. They were there to inspect his church for too many parishioners on Good Friday.

Vee haf rools fo covet, Pastor Pawlowski.

On Saturday, the cops came back for Pawlowski, but they’d learned their lesson and didn’t come to his church. He might chase them out again and hurl truth bombs about the police state again.

Ezra Levant of Rebel News reported that the police hunted down Pawlowski on a highway, pulled him over, and dragged him off.

A heavily-armed SWAT team just took down a Christian pastor heading home from church. Police say he’s charged with “inciting” people to go to church. This is the second pastor jailed this year. We’re crowdfunding his lawyers at SaveArtur.com

Rebel News reports that Canadian Broadcasting apparently was tipped off about the bust and a photographer, with a very shaky hand, got video of the pastor being arrested.

The CBC photographer gloried in the bust of the pastor, hogtied and carried off by the heavily armed police. Except it wasn’t the pastor in this photo. It pictured his brother.

The reporter wrote on his Twitter account that “being a jerk has its consequences. He doesn’t seem to be laughing now.”

He later deleted his tweeted photo.

Police have been cracking down on people who are not wearing masks outside, as well. Mass protests have ended up with people being arrested.

The pastor, who has fought against the coronavirus closures of churches in Canada, was hauled off “like he’s a terrorist,” according to Rebel News.

They hunted him down like he’s a terrorist.

Police cars swarmed him as he drove home from his church. They ordered him out of his car and made him kneel down on a busy highway.

Heavily-armed SWAT police arrested him. But he’s not a terrorist. He’s Artur Pawlowski, a Christian pastor. And he’s now in jail.

Pawlowski wondered when the police would come for him.

He produced a video in advance to release in case.

If you’re watching this video it means they have successfully arrested me and I am in jail. If you would like to support me and support Rebel News and their legal team that is trying their best to get me out of this trouble please go to SaveArtur.com. … Help me, help my family, help my wife and my children to get me out of this horrible, illegal situation.

Pawlowski was driving home from his Saturday church service when the police arrested him “proactively” for breaking a “new court order” issued two days before.

Earlier today, police arrested an organizer of a church service who was in violation of a new court order obtained by Alberta Health Services (AHS) in relation to mandatory compliance of public health orders for gatherings.

On Thursday, May 6, 2021, AHS obtained a Court of Queen’s Bench Order that applies to gatherings including protests, demonstrations and rallies. This order imposes new restrictions on organizers of protests and demonstrations requiring compliance with public health orders including masking, physical distancing and attendance limits.

Earlier this morning, CPS lawfully enforced this order by proactively serving an organizer of a church service with the court order in an effort to ensure that citizens attending the Saturday service were abiding by the current COVID-19 public health orders. The order was served prior to the church service, and CPS did not enter the church during the service.

Recommended ‘I Thought I Was Going to Die’ – Man Held at Gunpoint and Beaten by Portland’s Antifa/BLM Terrorists Talks From Hospital Trauma Center

The pastor was arrested for “inciting” a church service.

The service organizer acknowledged the injunction, but chose to ignore requirements for social distancing, mask wearing and reduced capacity limits for attendees, and continued with the event.

As a result, Artur Pawlowski and Dawid Pawlowski have both been arrested and charged with organizing an illegal in-person gathering, including requesting, inciting or inviting others to attend an illegal public gathering, promoting and attending an illegal public gathering.

The police press release explained that they understand the “people’s desire to participate in faith-based gatherings as well as the right to protest… however, we all must comply with public health orders to ensure everyone’s safety and well-being.”

Translation: Church doesn’t contribute to your well-being. We know better than you.

Canadian attorney David Freiheit, who is a popular YouTuber called “Viva Frei,” summed up the tone in his country right now.

He wrote the tweet to Canadian leaders: “This is the new Canada. Pastors being arrested in the streets. Totalitarian regimes would be jealous. I would say ‘shame on you.’ But you can’t feel shame if you have no pride.”

Seems about right.

Jailhouse interview with Pastor Artur Pawlowski

Calgary Pastor Artur Pawlowski is still in jail.

He was arrested yesterday in a shocking SWAT team raid, made to kneel in the middle of a busy highway. It was clear from the moment of his arrest that this had nothing to do with a virus, and everything to do with political control.

Since that moment, he’s been treated brutally — thrown painfully into a police car; then forced to sit on a concrete slab, in a jail cell where the lights are never turned off. He is separated from his brother, who was arrested too, but he has no privacy — curious police come to gawk at him like he’s a circus animal.

But incredibly, Pastor Artur hasn’t lost hope — in fact, he’s more resolved than ever.

Our reporter Adam Soos managed to speak with him for five minutes. Here’s the full recording of that call:

As you can hear, Pastor Artur wasn’t aware of the massive wave of support for him around the world — obviously police wouldn’t tell him that. And he was also unaware that his three-person legal team has been trying relentlessly to speak with him — but that police refused to put their phone calls through to him.

This was an interesting interview for a number of reasons. But the fact that police were abusing him, and stopping him from getting legal counsel is outrageous — and shows that this has never been about a pandemic.

(Since that call, his lawyers have been permitted a very brief phone call to him.)

He is being treated as a political prisoner. This isn’t an arrest about a health order. It’s an “extraordinary rendition” like the CIA used to do to terrorists after 9/11.

Of course, Pastor Artur isn’t a terrorist. There isn’t a violent bone in his body. He isn’t accused of a crime. He simply won’t close his church at the whim of public health officials — the same public health officials who have no problem with Costco and Walmart being open.

I promise we’ll keep you posted on Pastor Artur’s state. And if you haven’t yet had a chance to support his legal defence fund, please do — by the looks of things, he’s going to be in legal battles against this injustice for a long time. Please click here, or go to www.SaveArtur.com. Thanks for your support for Pastor Artur.

Rebel News has been defending Pastor Artur for more than a year — he was one of the first Canadians to get a lockdown ticket in April of 2020 for the “crime” of feeding the homeless.

Police called that an illegal gathering too and gave him a whopping fine. We crowdfunded his lawyer back then and we won the case — that same lawyer is still fighting for Pastor Artur now, along with two others.

Now, the unlimited resources of the state are being thrown at Pastor Artur. But we’ve got something better on our side — we’ve got you!

If enough people can help chip in, we’ll be able to continue to have three excellent lawyers fighting back. I truly believe we’ll win. Please, go to www.SaveArtur.com.

This was an interesting interview for a number of reasons. But the fact that police were abusing him, and stopping him from getting legal counsel is outrageous — and shows that this has never been about a pandemic.

Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is trying to stop the 2020 election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, according to a report from the Washington Post.

In a letter to the president of the Arizona State Senate, Pamela S. Karlan, the head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, suggested that the recount is illegal.

“We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” Karlan wrote.

The Maricopa County Audit’s official Twitter account called the claims baseless.

Karlan also asked whether a plan by the private contractor hired to run the audit to interview voters to verify whether they cast ballots in the election as indicated by county records could “violate” federal laws prohibiting voter intimidation.

Arizona Senate’s liaison for the audit, former Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett, disputes the need for federal involvement and says that Cyber Ninjas, the Florida-based private contractor hired to lead the audit, hasn’t started interviewing voters but said the company has pledged to do nothing that would constitute intimidation.

“This is a matter between the Arizona Senate and Maricopa County,” Bennett said. “We don’t see any grounds for anyone else to intervene.”

The Audit’s Twitter account tweeted late Wednesday, “Arizona has the authority to conduct this audit without interference from the Feds!”

In fact, at 14, Sarah was scapegoated and blamed for her own rapes by social workers and ignored by police, as Muslim rape gangs continued to severely abuse the girls, pimp them out and traffick them.

BBC reported in February about the deplorable state of Britain’s “unregulated homes for children” that only recently became regulated:

BBC News investigations revealed that children as young as 11 were being housed in these homes, and young people faced “organised abuse” in placements.
The ban does not affect thousands of placements of 16 and 17 year-olds in unregulated homes.
Children’s minister Vicky Ford said “every child deserves a stable and loving home”.

Children in these homes have been perfect targets for Muslim rape gangs. They are forgotten children of the state, treated as cattle. They fully trust an establishment that has thrown them to the wolves. This is how Muslim rape gangs are allowed to go on. They prey primarily on the most vulnerable, but no one is safe.

Sarah said: “I was taken to Birmingham a lot – for three years I was repeatedly missing. There were hundreds of men involved in Birmingham….They brought lots of girls from Derby to Birmingham – men from Birmingham would pick us up – and men from Derby would take us to Birmingham.” She referenced these Muslim rape gangs as “predators on the prowl” who “would never change.”

Rather than dedicate the resources needed to end Muslim rape gangs and bring these men to justice, the British system focuses on how to stop “Islamophobia” and crack down on so-called “hate,” as defined by Islamic supremacist special interest groups. Police, social workers and politicians have protected the vilest serial criminals in Britain, out of fear of being called “Islamophobic” and “racist.” These “protectors” have sent the message to Muslim rape gang predators that it’s ok to rape and abuse British girls, particularly those in the “care” system. It’s a windfall for these gangs who use and abuse these girls as sex slaves in keeping with Islamic tenets that permit such treatment toward infidel women. Back in Pakistan, Christian and Hindu girls are routinely forced into marriages, raped and forced to convert. Western feminists prefer to focus on the alleged “toxic masculinity” of white men, while the unspeakable abuses committed by some Muslim men go undiscussed.

“Grooming gangs ‘trafficking girls to Birmingham from Derbyshire for decades,” by Jeanette Ildham, Birmingham Mail, May 2, 2021:

Grooming gangs were trafficking girls to Birmingham for decades with police failing to act, a survivor has claimed.

And Sarah, whose name we have changed to protect her identity, has questioned how the West Midlands force has yet to bring groups of offenders to justice as seen in other high profile cases like Rotherham and Telford.

She told how she was abused by predatory gangs while a runaway from care homes in Derby in the early 2000s.

She says Asian men of Pakistani heritage would regularly take her and friends to Birmingham where she was plied with drink and drugs and abused.

In one incident, she claims West Midlands Police officers stopped a car she was in with a group of abusers and another girl.

Despite taking the underage youngsters’ names and ages she says she was allowed on her way with the gang.

Sarah said: “Birmingham police stopped the car and took mine and my friend’s names and the men’s names. I was really scared as I didn’t know what was going to happen but the police just let us drive off.

“When we later got back to my care home the staff told me the police had rung and said we’d been stopped with really dangerous men. I thought, ‘Well if they were that dangerous why did you leave us with them?'”

Sarah says she was extensively groomed and abused in Derby and later repeatedly trafficked between Derby, Birmingham and Bradford by men from Birmingham and Derby.

She said: “I gave Derby police my Birmingham offenders’ names – but no one has ever been charged.

“I know of lots of Derby girls who were groomed in Birmingham, I don’t know why we don’t see high profile grooming cases in court in Birmingham like we have seen elsewhere in the country.”

She added: “I was groomed and abused between 1999 and 2003. And I was really horrendously groomed in Birmingham. It wasn’t just me, lots of girls, and lots of girls I know, were taken from Derby to be abused in Birmingham.

“I gave all the information I had to Derby police in 2012. No one was charged but I was very traumatised and very mentally unwell then so I don’t really know what happened.”

Sarah was born to a drug addict and prostitute mother and endured an unimaginable upbringing.

Her care records, which BirminghamLive has seen, reflect that she was targeted by her mum’s dealers and ‘clients’ from a young age as her ‘evil’ mother allowed sickening attacks to take place in return for drugs.

“I look at it in separate ways,” she recalled.

“On the one hand, my mum was evil. A lot of groomers who groom children just happen to be heroin and crack dealers, they are gang members, they are mafia-type gang members.

“My mum was in care herself, she was abused, she was not believed, she had mental health issues and is on crack and heroin, she’s selling herself on the corner and that’s very normal to her because that is what they let happen to my mum.

“So mum was kind of groomed, you could say, into heroin, exploitation, so in one way I feel that groomers targeted my mum so she’s a kind of victim too. In another way, it’s as though my mum was totally in on my abuse as well.”

She added: “Because I was very young, the reason I got removed from my mum’s care was because her pimps abused me.

“My care records show that I was abused by a man whilst in my mother’s care and social workers believed me – but I was still left with her. I was then abused again and taken into care.

“Then in my early teens I was abused for five years by grooming gangs, mostly Asian men of Pakistani heritage – whilst I was living in care.”…

CANADA: Rob Hoogland is freed from prison!

Rob Hoogland is freed from prison!

Powerful new attorney takes over his case and successfully files for appeal.

Hoogland thanks MassResistance for standing up for the truth and not backing down. Describes horrible conditions in prison – just for breaking ‘gag order’ (about his teenage daughter's "sex-change" procedures). Case reverberates across Canada. Rob got a letter of support from a Member of Parliament while in prison.

May 7, 2021
ALT TEXT
Rob Hoogland's new attorney, Vincent Larochelle, argues a case in a Canadian court. He specializes in criminal appeals.

Two weeks after British Columbia father Rob Hoogland was sentenced to a prison term, he has been freed and is back home! He was imprisoned for violating a “gag order” that barred him from discussing his teenage daughter’s gruesome government-supported “sex-change” procedures.

An angry judge and harsh punishment

As we recently reported, British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Michael Tammen angrily overrode a preliminary plea bargain and sentenced Rob to six months in prison (which would likely have ended up being about 4½ months) and a $30,000 fine. (We have since learned that Rob’s lawyer had rejected the final version of the plea deal, which made it easier for the judge to intervene.)

Tammen was furious that Rob had told MassResistance and others what the government is doing to his daughter – and that MassResistance had subsequently posted incriminating documents exposing the terrible behavior of the “gender clinic.” Tammen said that unless Rob was imprisoned for several months, it would “bring the administration of justice into disrepute.” This sentence is widely considered overly harsh given that it concerns a relatively minor crime and Rob is a first-time offender.

Tammen’s emotional obsession with this case and with punishing Rob is exhibited in a detailed 18-page “Reasons for Judgment” paper he wrote after the sentencing. Like the punishment he gave out, it seems rather excessive given the relatively mundane nature of the “crime.” (Note that Tammen refers to MassResistance in the document only as "MR" so that no one will look us up and see our posts!)

Rob Hoogland takes a last look outside of the Court building before turning himself in on March 16.

A new attorney takes on the appeal!

After he was jailed, Rob’s friends and family contacted one of the top young criminal-appeal lawyers in British Columbia, Attorney Vincent Larochelle, who has taken the case. Larochelle is a graduate of Oxford Law School, a Rhodes Scholar, and is considered a “rising star” in this field. His fees are coming from the money Rob raised on his GoGetFunding page.

Larochelle successfully filed an appeal for Rob, arguing that his rights were clearly violated under Canada’s Charter of Rights. On April 30, the British Columbia Court of Appeal granted the application for Rob to be released on $1,000 bail until his appeal hearing, which has been scheduled for Nov. 1, 2021.

Strict release order

However, the Court of Appeal’s Release Order has outlined several strict stipulations which Rob is required to obey during this time. These include:

  1. A full and thorough reinstatement of the “gag order”: Rob may not in any way, directly or indirectly, identify himself, his daughter, or anyone else involved with his daughter’s situation by name, nor may he discuss or provide documentation about her medical status, mental health, or treatments. He also may not, through any means, identify himself as the father.
  2. He must keep the peace and be of good behavior, and diligently pursue his appeal.
  3. He must maintain his current employment.
  4. He must remain within the province of British Columbia, and surrender his travel documents to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Rob spoke with us a few days after he got home. It was basically to let us know that he was free because he knew we were very concerned.

He said that he intends to fully abide by all the terms of the Release Order. During the conversation, he did not identify himself by name, nor make any reference to his daughter’s situation or to any of the other people involved.

In the prison

He talked about his experience in the prison since being incarcerated after his initial hearing in March. Rob was a first-time offender who had violated a gag order – a fairly minor, non-violent crime. But Justice Tammen purposefully placed Rob in the North Fraser Pretrial Centre, which is a high-security facility for violent offenders. It has a history of being a brutal place.

The infamous North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia.

It was horrible, Rob said. He was in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day. But during the one hour he was out of his cell, it was even worse. “It’s a very violent place. You had to be very careful because confrontations happened frequently. And the guards would only step in after a person gets beaten up,” he told us.

A letter from a Member of Parliament

What has happened to Rob’s daughter and the grotesque way that Rob was treated by the Court has reverberated across Canada, despite a virtual blackout by the mainstream media. (Only Canada’s alternative press, Rebel News has covered it with any consistency.)

While he was in prison, Rob received a letter from a Member of Parliament, Derek Sloan of Ontario, who is an outspoken conservative. MP Sloan was very supportive. He told Rob:

Stay Strong. The biggest changes come from government overreach like this. This is a tough time, but know that you are in the hearts and minds of many. This is a low point, but it’s things like this that will cause your plight to spread and the government to eventually break. You’re in all of our prayers.

High praise for MassResistance

At the trial, Justice Tammen blamed MassResistance’s refusal to take down the incriminating documents as a reason he was so harsh on Rob. But despite everything that has happened to him, Rob still has high praise for us. Although he was careful to speak in very general terms and not bring up specifics, Rob said that he “absolutely supports what we did” and “is glad that we stood up” to the pressure.

He added that he is angry at the few detractors of MassResistance in British Columbia, particularly the “transgender activist” Jenn Smith. Rob clearly understands the larger fight!

Final thoughts

The government of Canada has become completely out of control in its frightening oppression of citizens who do not submit to the increasingly radical and destructive LGBT movement. The appeals trial starting on Nov. 1 will likely be a landmark event. This time, Rob will have an energetic and skilled attorney with a track record for winning. Will it turn the tide? Rob is personally very upbeat about it! We’ll definitely continue to report this case.

Portland BLM/Antifa Draw Guns on Drivers to Enforce No-Go Zone in Broad Daylight

BY VICTORIA TAFT

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/victoria-taft/2021/05/07/portland-blm-antifa-draw-guns-on-drivers-to-enforce-no-go-zone-in-broad-daylight-n1445236;

Portland’s revolutionaries from Black Lives Matter and antifa took over a busy street at noon on Wednesday and pulled guns on drivers who dared try to dart past the mob. The groups were holding a rally for a gangland shooter who was killed by police in 2018. That shooting was ruled justified (more below).

The chaotic scene included guns being drawn on white drivers by the multiracial BLM and antifa protesters and one driver drew his own weapon in reply. Someone deployed pepper spray.

A driver was reportedly beaten and held against his will, another had his back window destroyed and shots of some sort were fired by the AK-47- and AR-15-wielding terrorists. Multiple sharp sounds were heard followed by the sound of whooshing air after the militants flattened the tires of a car the gun-wielding crowd had forced to stop. The man was “aided” to the sidewalk, as a live-streamer put it (see the video below).

Portland
Antifa/BLM terrorists wield guns as they block citizens from traveling on public streets.

The driver in the video above had his keys, gun, and tools stolen out of his truck, according to Portland police, who finally showed up to take a report in response to an apparently false claim that someone had been hit by one of the cars.

As officers arrived they did not find any pedestrians who claimed to have been struck. The large group had moved away, still walking in nearby streets, some openly carrying firearms. Officers remained in the area searching for anyone who may have been injured and to collect evidence and information.

Additional calls came in from people who had been driving vehicles in the area and who were blocked by the crowd in the street. One person said people in the crowd broke out their vehicle windows, damaged tires, and sprayed them with some kind of irritant near North Interstate Avenue and North Killingsworth Street.

A person in another vehicle blocked by the crowd near North Alberta Street and North Michigan Avenue got into a dispute with people who surrounded him and took a firearm from him, as well as tools and keys.

See another video of the melee below.

A video taken of the event doesn’t tell the whole story, of course, and details are few. But you don’t need to see the video to know that this looks like another act of terrorism on the streets of Portland by Antifa thugs. It also highlights again that BLM and their Antifa “security” are armed, dangerous, and willing to confront people who get in their way. As the Left is fond of saying, “by any means necessary.”

This is the banana republic encouraged by Democrats who have run Portland for decades. While city leaders spend time and money on defunding police and diversity-intersectional-art-tax projects and throwing away millions on its nearly 15th year of “ending homelessness in ten years,” actual law-abiding people are being harmed by the scourge of these thugs.

Expect more clashes like this.

Mayor Ted Wheeler’s flaccid denunciations of Antifa and the district attorney setting rioters free when they’re caught red-handed makes Portland an easy target for this kind of lawlessness.

The marchers took over the street at North Interstate Avenue and North Killingworth Street in North Portland. The marchers demanded “justice” for Portlander Patrick Kimmons, who was killed by police in 2018 after he’d shot two people in a gangland shooting. Police demanded he drop his gun and when he didn’t, they shot him. The shooting was declared justified and officers were cleared of any wrongdoing in the case.

Portland does allow open carry of unloaded weapons and concealed carry. But, as I explain in my podcast series, Portland is attempting to do away with self-defense, one conservative at a time.

Mogadishu, here we come.

STILL IN NATO? WHY?: Turkish schoolbooks glorify jihad and martyrdom, include anti-American messages, sympathy for ISIS

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/05/turkish-schoolbooks;

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

Jihadist regimes have long understood the benefits of indoctrinating children to wage jihad and glorify martyrdom. And so it is no surprise that under Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the jihad ideology has spread into schools:

According to a recently released analysis of 28 Turkish textbooks, that country’s education system, which was once a model of secularism that taught evolution, cultural openness, tolerance toward minorities, and Kurdish as a minority language, has increasingly replaced those concepts with notions of jihad, martyrdom in battle, and a neo-Ottoman and pan-Turkist ethno-religious worldview in its curricula.

It gets worse:

recent curricula — in a NATO country that has long aspired to EU membership — include anti-American and anti-Armenian messages, display “sympathy for the motivations of ISIS and Al-Qaeda.”

Turkey should long ago have been expelled from NATO.

“This Time Turkish, Not Saudi, Schoolbooks Are Under Scrutiny,” by James M. Dorsey, Algemeiner, May 3, 2021:

According to a recently released analysis of 28 Turkish textbooks, that country’s education system, which was once a model of secularism that taught evolution, cultural openness, tolerance toward minorities, and Kurdish as a minority language, has increasingly replaced those concepts with notions of jihad, martyrdom in battle, and a neo-Ottoman and pan-Turkist ethno-religious worldview in its curricula.

The report, by the Israeli research group Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (Impact-se)…assert that recent curricula — in a NATO country that has long aspired to EU membership — include anti-American and anti-Armenian messages, display “sympathy for the motivations of ISIS and Al-Qaeda,” focus exclusively on Sunni Muslim teachings, and replace electives such as Kurdish with religious courses.

The textbooks promote concepts like “Turkish World Domination” and the Turkish or Ottoman “Ideal of the World Order,” the report said.

“Education is a prime pillar in [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan’s efforts to drape the country in the cloak of Sharia… The Ministry of Education has been pressuring citizens to conform to conservative Islamic practices in public schools,” commented Turkey scholar Soner Cagaptay in a forward to the study.

The study was released as Turkey was attempting to repair relations with Europe and Middle Eastern states, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Israel, that were bruised by Ankara’s aggressive assertiveness in Libya, Syria, the Caucasus, and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Erdogan spoke in a video conference to European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in advance of a European summit that was scheduled to discuss relations with Turkey.

The conference came a day after the EU shelved plans to blacklist senior executives of Turkey’s state-owned Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) in retaliation for Turkish drilling for natural gas in disputed waters in the eastern Mediterranean.

The report is likely to add to skepticism about an 11-point human rights action plan recently unveiled by Erdogan that he said would bolster freedoms and legal protections.

Erdogan has undermined freedom of the press and the independence of the judiciary, and arrested thousands on often flimsy charges since he defeated a failed military coup in 2016. As a result, Turkey ranks today as one of the world’s foremost jailers of journalists.

Turkish police recently detained several officials of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), days after a top public prosecutor demanded the party’s dissolution for alleged links to Kurdish nationalist militants. Parliament also expelled an HDP deputy, undermining Erdogan’s effort to suggest that he is adhering to values projected by Europe and US President Joe Biden….

MINNEAPOLIS: Police Refuse To Enter George Floyd Autonomous Zone, Force Bleeding Woman To Go To Them

"She is bleeding and cut everywhere, but we'll call back and ask her to move a block away."

BY NATIONAL FILE

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/minneapolis-police-refuse-to-enter-george-floyd-autonomous-zone-force-bleeding-woman-to-go-to-them/; republished unedited for educational, and research purposes.

Minneapolis police are refusing to enter the George Floyd Autonomous Zone, with emergency responders instructing a bleeding woman who was pushed out of a window to go to them.

Known as “George Floyd Square,” or “The Free State of George Floyd,”  the area surrounding the death site of Floyd has been operating as an Autonomous Zone independent from control of the police or emergency services since September last year, encompassing seven to eight blocks in total. With police refusing to enter lest they face violent reprisals from radical antifa or Black Lives Matter activists, victims of crime are left to fend for themselves, or meet police outside the zone.

One particularly disturbing incident took place at the end of last month, where a female victim was pushed out of a window in a domestic dispute on the corner of 38th and Elliot. Police dispatch audio revealed the attitude taken by police regarding breaching the George Floyd Autonomous Zone. “Is it possible to have her move at least a block away, maybe [to] 38 and 10th?” asked the police officer responding to her 911 call. “She is bleeding and cut everywhere, but we’ll call her back and ask her to move a block away,” the dispatcher responded, with the woman ordered to move, despite her severe injuries.

Multiple people have died within the George Floyd Autonomous Zone, with the police unable to respond to their calls. Leneesha Columbus, a pregnant black woman, was shot in the zone, and police officers set up their staging area half a mile away from the incident. “We’ll meet at 34th and Elliot, see if we can get the victim extracted to a closer location to us. And no lights or sirens, please,” an officer told dispatch. Columbus died. More recently, Imaz Wright was shot during a gang-related shooting on March 6th – police were informed that her and another victim would be carried to the edge of the zone. Wright died.

Even before the Autonomous Zone had been properly created, one man died due to “caretakers” of what was then just a memorial for Floyd blocking access to emergency services. Dameon Chambers was shot during a Juneteenth celebration last year, with city documents revealing that that police “ultimately had to pull Mr Chambers to an area” where the ambulance could gain access to.

Business owners and residents, many of them black, feel abandoned by the police and authorities. “The city left me in danger,” said Alexander W, the owner of the Smoke in The Pit restaurant to the New York Post last month. “They locked us up on here and left us behind,” he added, saying that they have no food or water either. Some of the businesses even set up a GoFundMe page, asking for donations to help them survive.

The border to the autonomous zone is currently guarded by Antifa activists. National File reported last month that the activists had threatened a reporter, telling him he would be “in a bad situation in a second” if he didn’t leave. At the border are instructions for anyone who wishes to enter, instructing visitors to “honour the space” and treat it with reverence. White people are specifically asked to “decenter” themselves, and monitor other white people for any “problematic” behavior.

The inspiration for the George Floyd Autonomous Zone, CHAZ, which sprung up in Seattle last Summer, also suffered a spate of shootings, with no response from police. One man who was shot in June even wanted to sue the police for not responding quickly enough, despite the fact that crowds reportedly resisted the police entering. However, unlike the Free State of George Floyd, which has now lasted for over 7 months, CHAZ was shut down by police after existing for just over three weeks.

200 Fascist Simon & Schuster Employees Demand Publisher Drop Books They Disagree With

BY ROBERT SPENCER

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

Proving once again that inside every “progressive” is a totalitarian screaming to get out. My latest in FrontPage:

Over 200 employees of Simon & Schuster have gone full fascist, signing a petition calling on the publishing giant to stop providing a platform for everyone except fellow leftist fascists. The haters of the freedom of speech made three demands:

1. Cancel the two-book deal with Mike Pence and do not sign any more book deals with former members of the Trump administration.
2. End Simon & Schuster’s distribution deal with Post Hill Press [which publishes conservative books].
3. Commit to ongoing reevaluations of all clients, authors, distribution deals, and all other financial commitments that promote white supremacist content and/or harm the aforementioned marginalized communities.

The fascists claimed that “when S&S chose to sign Mike Pence, we broke the public’s trust in our editorial process, and blatantly contradicted previous public claims in support of Black and other lives made vulnerable by structural oppression. Simon & Schuster has chosen complicity in perpetuating white supremacy by publishing Mike Pence and continuing to distribute books for Post Hill Press, including predator Matt Gaetz’s FIREBRAND. By choosing to publish Mike Pence, Simon & Schuster is generating wealth for a central figure of a presidency that unequivocally advocated for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Blackness, xenophobia, misogyny, ableism, islamophobia, antisemitism, and violence. This is not a difference of opinions; this is legitimizing bigotry.”

Of course. No dissent from the left is a legitimate “difference of opinions,” because leftists see the world in a way that religious fanatics throughout history would find familiar: they alone have the vision of what is good and just, and since all those outside the fold are ignorant and evil, they have no rights that the arbiters of what constitutes acceptable opinion are bound to respect.

So far, however, Simon & Schuster’s chief executive Jonathan Karp has shown himself to be among the unredeemed. Karp reminded the fascists in his employ that the job of a publishing house was to allow for “a diversity of voices and perspectives.”Diversity! Karp’s choice of words must have driven the petitioners up the wall because like all leftists, they are no doubt extremely proud of their commitment to “diversity” in all forms except, of course, a genuine diversity of thought. Black and brown and queer and trans voices and all the rest are welcome among them, as long as they all think the same way and say the same thing. But here was Karp gently making it clear that the petitioners weren’t really in favor of diversity in any meaningful way. “We come to work each day to publish, not cancel,” he said, “which is the most extreme decision a publisher can make.”

For that he will likely be canceled himself before too long.

The American left long ago embraced authoritarianism and fascism and is increasingly intolerant of any point of view other than its own. Note that the petitioners included in its laundry list of denunciations the spurious propaganda neologism “Islamophobia.” “Islamophobia” is an illegitimate conflation of two distinct phenomena: crimes against innocent Muslims, which are never justified, and honest analysis of the motivating ideology of jihad terror, which is always necessary. It is inconceivable that anyone would want to publish a book calling for attacks on innocent Muslims or any innocent people, but there are many books discussing the motivating ideology of jihad terrorism.

Islamic advocacy groups and their leftist allies have been insisting for years that such books, too, constituted “Islamophobia.” Such analyses are what these fascists at Simon & Schuster want to stamp out. If the left succeeds in consolidating power, it will be impossible to publish, and likely illegal to enunciate publicly, any opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others, for there is no example of any such opposition not being considered “Islamophobic.”

The fascist employees also demanded that Simon & Schuster cut ties with my publisher, Post Hill Press (my last six books have been or are in the process of being published under Post Hill’s imprint, Bombardier Books), with which Simon & Schuster has a distribution arrangement. The petition libelously asserts that Post Hill “openly supports and normalizes violence against minors, Black women, and all Black people by individuals and the state.” This is, of course, not remotely true. It is how left-fascists lie in order to demonize and destroy their opponents. Although Karp has rejected this petition, expect to see much more of this sort of thing. We have not yet reached the high tide of left-fascism in America today.

DHS Considering Hiring Contractors to Spy on “Domestic Terrorists” Online

SARAH CORRIHER: The American Stasi Strikes

In the former American Republic, the Biden regime is making lists of its enemies but the God-given rights that are cataloged within the U.S. Constitution are an impediment to his weaponized law enforcement agencies. The Department of Homeland Security is going to hire private companies to do its dirty work, so that it may trounce the 4th Amendment and existing privacy laws. These companies will be working for the government, in a dirt digging (fishing) operation against conservatives and Christians, while pretending not to work for the government.

Report: DHS Considering Hiring Contractors to Spy on “Domestic Terrorists” Online

BY

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/report-dhs-considering-hiring-contractors-to-spy-on-domestic-terrorists-online/;

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

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is considering working with outside firms to surveil “extremist” language by Americans online, according to a report.

The DHS is discussing a plan that would allow them to circumvent limits on intelligence gathering. Federal agents are only allowed by federal law to scroll through public posts on social media and cannot use burner accounts to follow private accounts or enter private chat rooms. However, the reported DHS plan would enlist private cybersecurity firms to engage in those practices.

The initiative comes as law-enforcement agencies ramp up scrutiny of extremist groups with members present at the January 6 Capitol protest. In the aftermath of that event, both Republicans and Democrats criticized security officials for intelligence failures that caused them to underestimate the number of people that would attempt to enter the Capitol.

During his address to a Joint Session of Congress, President Biden said, “The most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism.” He said that, even though the Capitol survived the supposed insurrection, “The struggle is far from over. The question of whether our democracy will long endure is both ancient and urgent.” 

Biden’s remarks echo comments made in congressional testimony by FBI Director Christopher Wray in March. “The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now, and it’s not going away any time soon,” Wray said at the time.

The extremists allegedly operate and plot online. It was found that the majority — more than 85 percent — of those charged with crimes for their role in the January 6 “insurrection” were charged in part using evidence from their personal social media accounts, others’ accounts, or both. Facebook was the preferred platform and was used by 73 of the people charged, more than all other social media sites combined, according to a Forbes analysis. YouTube was the second most-referenced at 24 percent. Instagram, a Facebook-owned company, was next at 20 percent. Parler, the app that pledged protection for free-speech rights and garnered a large conservative user base, was mentioned in just eight percent of the charges.

Thus, monitoring “extremist” chatter online becomes a crucial necessity for the DHS. To achieve that, some privacy protections need to be overcome. According to the Exclusionary Rule, first formulated by the U.S. Supreme Court in Mapp v. Ohio, the government is prohibited from using information that it obtained illegally — usually meaning without a warrant — in court. However, evidence first obtained by private citizens may be used in court, regardless of how it was obtained, as long as the private citizen is not acting as an agent of the police.

In coordination with the National Security Council and the FBI, officials at DHS are considering multiple ways to expand the department’s approach to gathering information via social media. “There was only limited awareness before January 6 of what violent extremists were planning through social media,” said Tom Warrick, former DHS deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism policy. Warrick confirmed the DHS will likely “explore whether contractors could help them understand plots and trends” online.

Using private contractors to monitor social-media sites would give DHS a work-around to warrant requirements. In the new reported plan, the private contractors could tell the government officials what information they saw, thus avoiding the warrant application. “We are exploring with our lawyers, civil rights, civil liberties and privacy colleagues, how we can make use of outside expertise,” a DHS official said.

The DHS is not the first major federal institution under the Biden administration that has sparked concern among Americans.

The U.S. Postal Service has been quietly monitoring social-media posts, including posts about planned protests. At least some of that specifically targeted “right-leaning accounts,” Yahoo News reported. The surveillance program, they explain, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (iCOP), centers around hired analysts who review social-media accounts for “inflammatory” posts to share across government agencies.

Last summer, amid the Portland protests, the DHS got under fire for compiling “intelligence reports” on two journalists who covered the riots. After the Washington Post published a story detailing the department’s practices, then-Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf ordered the intelligence office to stop collecting information on journalists and assured Americans that DHS is committed to respecting civil rights and civil liberties, particularly when it comes to the exercise of First Amendment-protected rights.

But as President Joe Biden says, no amendment is absolute, and for his administration, privacy and freedom of speech seem to be secondary to “public safety” endangered by the “most lethal terrorist threat.”

States Continue to Not Buy Into Biden’s New World Order

Top ‘O the Briefing

No Thanks, Comrade Biden

Happy Tuesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. It all falls apart after we quit playing Candy Land.

Gosh, is it Tuesday already? This week is positively WHIZZING by. Before we know it, it will almost be Wednesday.

The longer we meander through this dystopian Biden-alleged kinda/sorta presidency, the easier it is to get lost in the media noise surrounding everything that isn’t. That’s what’s weighing on a lot of the people I know who are gloom and doom all of the time. Even those of us who know that the media hacks are lying can occasionally get a little distracted by it all.

When I say “everything that isn’t” I mean the myth of this sham presidency. The media will tell you that all is going well. Everybody loves this cuddly old teddy bear of a president. Heck, we don’t even need to fact-check him anymore. They’ve got polls. They’ve got op-eds. They’ve got Jake Tapper and the rest of the MSM dotting their “i”s with hearts in their feelings journals, just like they did when The Lightbringer was president.

What they don’t have is reality.

The Democrats have a bad habit of taking any election victory and claiming that they have a mandate from the people to play their Democratic/commie reindeer games. The suspension of disbelief required to actually accept this mandate fairy tale after the last election is remarkable, but here we are.

The Masked Biden Fetish Brigade would have us all believe that the majority of the citizens of this country are thrilled with everything the administration is up to. What we’re seeing out in the hinterlands doesn’t quite bear that out, however.

Biden’s border nightmare that’s largely being ignored by, well, him is so bad that the state of Arizona and now parts of Texas have declared emergencies to deal with the problem. Spoiler alert: this is only going to get worse.

People are getting fed up with the mask nonsense.

We’ve seen a lot of states try to get out in front of Biden’s anti-2nd Amendment fervor and strengthen their gun laws.

And, much to the chagrin of the Democrats and their flying monkeys in the media, some of the “irregularities” from the last election are still being addressed.

The state of Kansas just dealt with those last two issues, which Bryan wrote about yesterday:

In the span of a month we’ve come full circle on election reforms — actual reforms, not the Democrats’ monstrosity that’s merely advertised as such. That unconstitutional power grab is going nowhere.

Kansas’ legislature has just overridden its governor’s veto and put into law a set of election reforms similar to those that just weeks ago Joe Biden declared were “Jim Crow on steroids.”

Biden would know these laws are nothing like Jim Crow, if he still had all his mental faculties, because he was around for Jim Crow. Biden happily cavorted with segregationist Democrats when it suited him. And Jim Crow was a Democrat policy.

That’s right, the Sunflower State just boldly went where Georgia has been getting savaged for going.

I don’t think the Biden message is resonating quite the way his team thinks it is.

This is from Bryan’s post as well:

Getting rid of what Bryan calls the “Zuck bucks” is huge. That nightmare needs to be kneecapped nationwide, but this is a good start.

Regarding the gun stuff:

The Legislature overrode Kelly’s veto of a bill that would create a special concealed carry permit for 18-, 19- and 20-year-olds, and that’s a major victory for gun-rights advocates. The state already allows people 21 and older to carry concealed guns without a permit and adults can carry them openly, but Kelly’s election had advocates of tougher gun laws hoping for a roll back of Kansas’ generally loose policies.

The Biden vision for America is certainly popular in the coastal-leftist hive mind regions of the country. Once you tiptoe into real America, however, it is anything but. It’s important to remember that the discontent with the Democrats’ overreach is manifesting itself in tangible pushback, not just raging emotion. The bad news is that this may just inspire the Dems to get even more aggressive with the commie push.

We’re just gonna have to hope there is something left to salvage by the time 2022 gets here.

I’ll stay positive for now. Whiskey helps.

Biden Pushes Founders’ America to the Brink

Will we pass the test or fall into the abyss of history?

James Madison, hailed as the father of our Constitution, is probably turning over in his grave given the shredding of our God-given constitutional values and principles upon which we were founded.

Madison recognized that since concentrating power leads to tyranny, dividing government power was essential for the preservation of liberty. He will never be accused of being short-sighted about the threats government would pose to the people.

Madison and others set out deliberately to design a form of government that would limit abuses and withstand the test of time. America now faces that test, and the central question that has emerged is: Will we pass the test, or will we fall into the abyss of history as other nation-states have done?

Along with other framers of our nation’s Constitution, Madison argued for dividing federal power among the three branches of our government — legislative, executive, and judicial. These should be studied and clearly understood by every American schoolchild from an early age, but to our nation’s and our children’s detriment, they are not.

And what is even less understood is why the Founders adopted a structure that they knew would result in conflict among the branches. In truth, the constitutional structure was designed not to enhance the efficiency of the government but to impede the exercise of raw governmental power and to protect the liberty of the people.

Separation of powers is not a flaw in our system of government, as many demanding changes increasingly assert. It is purposely designed to protect our constitutional republic from the tyranny of a few — tyranny that today is knocking down the door of America.

Contrast the original design chosen by our framers with the intemperate statements of President Biden, who demands Congress yield to his will on matters such as gun control, under the threat that he will usurp the role of Congress by signing executive orders.

Consider the effect of the Democrats’ dangerous threat to pack the Supreme Court if it does not bow to President Biden’s broad claims to executive authority in violation of the separation of powers. Explain why 20 of our 50 Republican senators voted to confirm Merrick Garland as attorney general — under whose leadership the Department of Justice just conducted an early-morning raid on the law office and apartment of President Trump’s former lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

To fully appreciate how dangerous these recent developments are, only three months into the Biden administration, Americans must now revisit the original plan.

In 1788, Madison penned Federalist No. 51 to persuade the people of New York to ratify the Constitution. He explained the rationale for dividing federal power among three branches of government as “contriving the interior structure of the government” so that “its several constituent parts may, by their mutual relations, be the means of keeping each other in their proper places.”

All said, having three branches place checks and balances on each other to prevent an out-of-control government keeps imperfect humans from gaining too much power.

Again, the ideas of Madison were intentional in order to select persons to serve in each branch of government in a manner that would prevent one branch from controlling the other. Our Constitution was designed so that each branch would be able to operate within its sphere independently from the other branches.

And it was structured so that each branch would have “the necessary constitutional means and personal motives to resist encroachments of the others.”

“Ambition must be made to counteract ambition,” Madison wrote. God knows we have seriously ambitious politicians now “serving” who are hungry for even more power for themselves — but so far the Democrats in Congress are embracing the far-left Biden/Harris/AOC agenda lock, stock and barrel.

Madison considered this separation as not some mere preference but instead absolutely “essential to the preservation of liberty.” As a student of history, Madison fully expected that the government he helped create would eventually become abusive of its citizens. He wrote that the separation of powers was “necessary to control the abuses of government” because government was no more than an assembly of sinful men (and women).

He asked, “[W]hat is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature?” Then he penned his famous line: “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.”

So Madison grounded the need to separate powers in the very nature of man. His is a distinctly biblical view of man, which makes clear we have all been born with original sin. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

Madison was a practical, God-fearing man and a realist — something we need more of today — and he understood the fallen nature of those who would serve in government. The reality is that we have a government composed of sinful people exercising authority over a population of sinful people.

It will ever be thus, but effective checks on the government’s exercise of its power truly are “essential to the preservation of liberty.”

Where did the idea of “separation of powers” originate? The principle of separation of powers is attributed to the French political theorist Baron de Montesquieu.  The framers were well familiar with Montesquieu and his treatise “The Spirit of the Laws,” written decades earlier, in which he advocated dividing power among branches of government.

But where did Montesquieu find that concept? In Book I, Chapter I, of his “Spirit of the Laws” he confesses that God is our “creator and preserver.”  He explains that man “constantly violates the laws God has established,” as “he is subject to ignorance and error” and “falls subject to a thousand passions.”

Hence, he repeatedly refers to the need to “separate” and “balance” power — not to concentrate it.

Tracing the thread of this principle even further back, the Holy Bible describes the nature of man as being “shapen in iniquity.” (Psalm 51:5). And it describes the nature of God, and his attributes, and his role in preserving his creation. One verse that summarizes all three of those roles is Isaiah 33:22: “For the LORD is our judge [judicial], the LORD is our lawgiver [legislative], the LORD is our king [executive]; he will save us.”

Certainly, it is no coincidence that these functions are reflected in the three separate branches of our federal government. While the Lord God can fulfill these three roles perfectly, the same could not be said of any of his creation — at least since Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden.

Because humans (men and women alike) are most certainly not angels, we must divide the various functions of government and not trust anyone in government with too much power. Whenever any one branch of government tries to usurp the power entrusted to another, it is the duty of the other branches to resist.

Under the Constitution, the judiciary has the duty to decide cases based on lawless acts by the states, though the Supreme Court’s refusal to do so last year amid a contested election raised serious concerns.

Increasingly, that is the story of our federal government — usurpation and abdication.  None of the branches seems to want to perform its own function but rather wants to exercise the power of another branch.

Where are our political or even our moral leaders? We the people are demanding answers from federal officeholders and will not be satisfied with your “politics as usual” answers any longer. We will not be satisfied because our nation faces a critical transition point in U.S. history, and your continued usurpation and abdication of your constitutional functions is unacceptable.

Whenever there is a failure of one of the branches to do its duty to defend its constitutional responsibilities (and these current failures of our government represent a clear and present danger to our republic) — the duty falls on We the People to remove those who have betrayed their trust and to restore constitutional order.

And We The People need to quit complaining about the politicians and instead vote them out, or better still, get involved intimately and directly in the constitutional republic that the eminent Benjamin Franklin warned us about keeping.

Sadly (or not, depending on your viewpoint), this is where America stands today.

Read our Constitution here and get involved!
