Forgetting the Declaration of Independence’s words while campaigning in 2020, Joe Biden famously said that all “men and women [sic] created by — you know, you know, the thing.” Now Kamala Harris has quoted the Declaration, too, and perhaps knows the “thing” but doesn’t want to say the thing.

That is while giving a Sunday speech in Tallahassee, Florida, marking the 50th anniversary of the now-overturned, unconstitutional Roe v. Wade opinion, Harris cited the rights mentioned in the founding document but omitted the very first one: life.

Moreover, while she did say that we are “endowed” with certain rights, she neglected to mention the endower: God. And many find this just too convenient to have been a Biden dotard moment, as mentioned a right to life and the Creator of life wouldn’t exactly have buttressed the pro-prenatal infanticide appeal she was issuing.

Harris’s glaring omissions occurred at the beginning of her remarks. After she stated that “we collectively believe and know America is a promise — a promise of freedom and liberty — not for some, but for all,” she added:

“A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence [states] that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The Declaration’s actual text reads: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The first right is a prerequisite, too. After all, there can’t be any liberty or pursuit of anything if there’s no life in the first place. Related to this, Harris preceded the above remarks with more than a touch of irony. Mentioning how she and others were “mourning” the “senseless gun violence” that took place in Monterey Park, California, on Saturday, she passionately said that “this violence must stop” — in a speech advocating violence in the womb. But Harris, who is often mocked for being inane and incoherent, was mainly, and roundly, criticized for her life omission.

Get a Life, Kamala

As to this, Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), no stranger to the world’s slings and arrows herself, wrote Monday in response to Harris:

Fellow Colorado Republican representative Ken Buck opined similarly the next day:

Commentator Catherine Hadro weighed in, too, tweeting:

Then, some “said the omission exposed her argument as weak,” reported Fox News.

“‘When you have to omit entirely one of the most integral parts of the Declaration of Independence in attempts to further your argument, said argument is immediately and objectively powerless,’ the Senate Working Group’s Leslie Ann Robertson said,” the site continued.

“‘This point is obvious but when the ‘right to life’ blows up your message so bad you have to pretend it doesn’t exist then maybe your message isn’t very good,’ GOP operative Matt Whitlock said,” Fox also informs.

What does exist, though, at least in the world according to Kamala, is a right to kill. In her Sunday speech, she used the term right(s) 16 times, and 10 of those instances related to prenatal infanticide. She spoke of how “50 years ago today,” activists “won a fight in the United States Supreme Court to recognize the fundamental constitutional right of a woman to make decisions about her own body — not the government.”

How this can be squared with the government compelling women to take a largely untested “vaccine,” Harris did not explain.

Harris continued in that vein, talking-point style, speaking of how Americans for nearly 50 years “relied on the rights that Roe protected,” how “last June, the United States Supreme Court took away that constitutional right — a fundamental right, a basic freedom,” and how Congress “must pass a bill that … protects reproductive rights.” She even channeled climate-con kid Greta Thunberg at one point, saying of those who’d defend the unborn, “How dare they? How dare they?!”

For those interested (and with strong stomachs), Harris’s entire speech is below.

Of course, Harris doesn’t mean a word of this. Remember that this is the woman who, when asked by The Late Show host Stephen Colbert how she went from essentially calling Biden a racist and sex abuser to being BFF with him, replied while cackling, “It was a debate!… It was a debate!” In other words, “Don’t you know, idiot, that I’m just in this for the power? It’s all Kabuki theater.”

Perhaps as much as any other politician, Harris is the very embodiment of power lust. She doesn’t care about unborn babies or about mothers, either — or anyone’s “rights.” She wants power for power’s sake.

But for a reminder of what Harris is indifferent to, in worldly gain’s name, you can watch an interview (video below) with three women who are sincere — three ex-abortion center workers. The testimonial of one of them, Deborah Edge, was particularly heart-wrenching.

“I remember — I-I-I have a visual, all the time I always remember this; it’s very disturbing to me,” she said, describing what transpired during certain abortions. “He [the abortionist] would hold the fetus by the feet and kinda’ pull down and insert the claws; and when he would squeeze them, you can see that that baby’s toes spread open [reacting to the pain].” (This portion begins at 8:58.)

Of course, all this violence, claiming more than 600,000 lives a year, is done without guns — and also, Kamala Harris should note, without God and respect for life.

Matt Gaetz Moves to Abolish the ATF

Matt Gaetz Moves to Abolish the ATF

To Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), the move last Friday by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to require citizens owning pistol braces to register them with the government was the “final straw.” On Tuesday, he rolled out a bill to abolish the rogue agency altogether.

The bill is one page long: “A Bill to abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.… The [agency] is hereby abolished.”

Would that this would be so simple!

In June 2021, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene proposed the same thing but gave the agency six months to move its responsibilities to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). Her bill included:

  • Repealing all ATF regulations issued after August 1, 2020;
  • Rescinding all hiring authority for the agency;
  • Publishing a list of all the weapons it had confiscated, and then selling them to licensed firearms dealers via a public auction;
  • Putting those proceeds into a fund for Border Patrol agents killed in the line of duty as a result of one of its botched operations, Operation Fast and Furious; and
  • Using any remaining funds to fund grants to states to establish firearm safety programs.

In 2014 Representative James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) had offered a similar bill, but with some of its operations being handed off to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) rather than the FBI.

When Gaetz rolled out his bill to abolish the ATF, he said:

The continued existence of the ATF is increasingly unwarranted based on the actions they’re taking to convert otherwise law-abiding people into felons. My bill would abolish the ATF.

If that doesn’t work, we’re going to try defunding the ATF.

If that doesn’t work, we’re going to target the individual bureaucrats at the top of the ATF who have exceeded their authority in rulemaking. And if that doesn’t work, we’re going to take a meat cleaver to the statutes that the ATF believes broadly authorize their actions.

When Representative Greene presented her bill back in 2021, she said the Biden administration was using the agency to harass lawful gun owners:

Joe Biden and the radical, anti-gun Democrats want to unleash the ATF on law-abiding gun owners across America, attacking our God-given Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

The ATF’s ongoing, unconstitutional attacks on the Second Amendment must end.

And, when Representative Sensenbrenner proposed abolishing the ATF, he also minced no words:

The ATF is a largely duplicative, scandal-ridden agency that lacks a clear mission.…

It is plagued by backlogs, funding gaps, hiring challenges and a lack of leadership.

For decades it has been branded by high-profile failures. There is also significant overlap with other agencies.

While neither of these last two bills saw the light of day (as will likely be the outcome of Gaetz’s effort), the history of the ATF shows it to be corrupt to the core. Sam Jacobs, in an article published by the Libertarian Institute in 2020, took 19 pages to review just a few of the agency’s egregious and illegal operations.

They included:

  • A review of the agency by a Senate subcommittee back in the 1980s concluded: “Based upon these hearings, it is apparent that ATF enforcement tactics … are constitutionally, legally, and practically reprehensible”;
  • Its Siege at Ruby Ridge;
  • Its Siege at Waco, Texas;
  • Its expanded powers granted after 9/11;
  • Its harassment of gun-show buyers and sellers in Richmond, Virginia;
  • Its “baiting” of innocent Hmong refugees in Laos;
  • Its entrapment of mentally disabled teenagers;
  • What the agency actually does with all those Form 4473s gun buyers must complete purchasing a firearm;
  • What the agency does with its slush fund generated from its illegal sales of cigarettes; and
  • How it punishes whistleblowers inside the agency when they bring to light some of the agency’s illegal activities.

For readers who may be unfamiliar with some of these illegal overreaches, the source is here. Upon reading, they may agree with Gaetz, Greene, and Sensenbrenner: The time to abolish this rogue agency is long past due.

MassResistance forces leftist School Board to remove obscene material

Texas MassResistance forces leftist School Board to remove obscene library book. And more on their way out!

School officials try to intimidate parents by putting 1-minute limitations on testimony, plus having students and teachers denounce “book bans.”

See the stunning video below! After the Texas MassResistance leader confronts Board, the book is gone within 48 hours.

January 19, 2023
ALT TEXT
Texas MassResistance leader Tracy Shannon points to Superintendent and says: "You should be fired because you approved this. It's on you."

One powerful activist can ignite the community and make a difference!

Humble, Texas is a suburb of Houston. The region is very conservative. But as in many “red” states, leftists campaign as conservatives and get elected to the School Board. The current chairman and others recently ran as a “conservative” slate and were endorsed by the local GOP and Tea Party (which sadly, are routinely clueless). Once elected, they proceeded to collude with the “woke” Superintendent to make lives miserable for pro-family parents who speak out.

Starting in August: Dozens of horrific sexual books were found in the school libraries

Our Texas MassResistance leader, Tracy Shannon, lives in the Humble school district. Starting last August 2022, Tracy began helping local parents deal with dozens of obscene sexual and other highly inappropriate books that they had found in their school district libraries.

Some of these books are beyond belief in their sexual depravity. But the position of the school officials was that the books were “educational” and the parents were ignorant extremists.

ALT TEXT
This is an example of what the School Board, Superintendent, and staff have termed "educational material" that "supports diversity."

Tracy began by going through the school’s arduous and bureaucratic “book challenge” process. She filed challenges for 35 books in all – about half during August and the other half in November. Tracy could easily see that the School Board had rigged the process against parents. In fact, between hearings and appeals and other “legalities,” the challenge process for these books could take over two years.

Even though none of the books were removed, a “banned books” hysteria broke out among school officials and leftists in the district.

The School Board cracks down on parents’ dissent

When parents began coming to testify about the books and complain, the Board took several outrageous steps to crack down on their dissent. We’ve seen nothing like this anywhere in the country!

ALT TEXT
The Humble District School Board and Superintendent.

Starting in August, the militant School Board chairman imposed an outrageous 1-minute limit on all public testimony (which is enforced by turning off the microphone). The deadline for signing up to testify is noon on the day of the meetings, so they know in advance who will be there. This has had the desired effect of keeping most people from bothering to show up. Often the “public testimony” portion of the School Board meetings lasts just over 5 minutes.

In addition, citizens are banned from taking photos or videos – not only during School Board meetings but anywhere on the property where the School Board meets. At one meeting, Tracy was recording herself in the hallway outside the School Board chambers, and the police threatened to arrest her. At another meeting, Tracy called a press conference on the grass outside the building, and the police came and forced her to leave. (Tracy has filed a legal complaint over this, which the school has appealed to the Attorney General!)

Thus, the only recordings that exist of School Board meetings are those that the administration produces itself, which it could edit before posting.

More intimidation of parents

Over the next few months, various school people spoke out at School Board meetings to intimidate parents over the obscene book controversy:

  • At one meeting, the Superintendent spoke (in rather insulting bureaucratese) about how these books are actually about “diversity” and that individual parents should work with the school if they had concerns about their individual children; but the books were staying! Parents were appalled. Tracy posted this video of Supt. Fagan’s comments, with the vulgar text of books, superimposed. (Caution!)
  • A former Humble school district teacher (who brags about being a member of a pro-LGBT church) addressed the meeting, comparing the parents to Nazi book-burners: “You don’t have to be a historian to know that the people banning the books are never the good guys.” See the video here.
  • Another former teacher came to thank the School Board for keeping the pornographic books in the library, because they help kids develop “quality reading skills,” and that “banning books is never the right answer.” Instead, she said, “Choice is the answer. Thank you for selecting books from quality selected authors from our students.” She looked right at Tracy while saying this.

Coaching kids to defend porn in their library

In late December, a Deputy Superintendent apparently made the decision to label one of the books that Tracy had challenged as “mature content.” This meant that it would require parental permission to be checked out. A wave of hysteria broke out over that one book being set aside! The “woke” school librarian placed the book on a special “banned books” shelf behind the librarian’s desk – to entice the kids.

One of the “woke” English teachers runs a far-left DEI (diversity-equity-inclusion) high school club called “Diversify Our Narrative.”  The club offers “anti-racist” lesson plans such as “The End of White Innocence” and links to lessons on gender identity and sexual orientation. Four girls from the club were coached to go to the next School Board meeting to stand up for their “intellectual rights” to read pornography.

At a fiery January School Board meeting – Tracy takes over!

On January 10, 2023, the School Board held its first meeting of the new year. The Board seemed ready to continue pushing back against parents.

When the public comments section began, the four high school students were called up to speak. They read from prepared scripts. They told the Board how “shocked” they were to see a shelf for banned books in the library, and how very important it was that no books be banned. They said that these are important books about “diversity” and “helping us understand ourselves” – that these books are especially needed because they help them “deal with their stress.”

ALT TEXT
The girls from the "Diversify our Narrative" club pose outside the School Board meeting before going in to testify and intimidate parents. This photo was posted on social media. Note that the Board's rule against taking photographs in the building doesn't apply to "approved" people.

Tracy spoke next. In her allotted minute she threw cold water on the girls’ arguments. She looked right at the Board, held up two of the books, and read from one of them, Fun Home. It was extremely graphic. She described the images of a boy ejaculating, females engaged in oral sex, and a chapter on “kink.”

Anyone hearing Tracy’s testimony would be sickened. But the School Board and Superintendent were totally unaffected. Just the opposite: Directly after the testimony, four of the Board members – including the Chairman, and Superintendent – gushed about how wonderful it was that the students took the time to come and speak. “Thank you for coming and thank you for expressing your concerns,” they said. “It’s always important to have you here and hear your voice … We want the students’ voice at the table.”

Here's the video clip of what happened [CAUTION: extremely filthy language]:

VIDEO: MassResistance throws cold water on "banned books" arguments at School Board meeting (7 min 13 sec)

The book Tracy read from gets officially “banned”!

Almost immediately after the January 10 meeting, social media began to burn up over Tracy’s testimony and the reaction by the School Board. Tracy sent out a document of quotes and sample pages from Fun Home. [Caution: graphic text and images.] Enormous outrage over that book from the conservative community hit the School Board members and school officials.

The day after the meeting, the school library's Internet system mysteriously was shut down. The following day it came back up, but Fun Home was nowhere to be found. The district also erased all the history of who had checked out the book, perhaps to avoid being sued.

On January 13, the district admitted that Fun Home had been removed from the library. The district blamed “Scholastic Publishing,” the vendor, who sent the book as part of a bundle. According to Tracy, the district sent Scholastic a “cease and desist letter.” (This should serve as a warning to parents not to trust Scholastic!)

None of these excuses has any credibility. The school staff is responsible for what it puts on its shelves. They could have just sent the book back. We’ve been assured that the librarians are experts and know how to select books and that we should not question them. In other words, they knew exactly what kind of a book it was.

Note that Fun Home did not need to go through the formal challenge process! It was an “informal” challenge process: The School Board just didn’t feel like taking more heat.

Tracy and her group are not finished! There are more books that will see community outrage!

Final thoughts

“Banned books” is a ploy promoted by the American Library Association (ALA) to push pornography and homosexuality. And gender confusion in children. They all admit this on their website.

It’s not surprising that leftist public officials lie about almost everything. They care much more about approval from their “woke” friends and allies than the welfare of children. The school staffers who bring these books (and defend them) should be fired - and probably sent to jail.

Tracy attempted to donate The Health Hazards of Homosexuality to the school district to offer a more honest discussion of LGBT issues. She was told the district only allows books that are reviewed by certain professional organizations, all of which are affiliated in some way with the ALA. That is called “gatekeeping.” Recall that the ALA also fought to prevent the Child Internet Protection Act from requiring libraries to put porn filters on computers used by children in public libraries.

Finally, Tracy reports that her group has already recruited two candidates to run in the Humble District School Board elections this May against incumbents.

Here Are Over 1,400 Proven Cases of Election Fraud, and That’s Just the Beginning

Here Are Over 1,400 Proven Cases of Election Fraud, and That's Just the Beginning

According to the Democrats, election fraud doesn’t happen — except for when Republicans win elections… in those cases, it was probably Russia, who somehow hacked in and changed votes. I mean, how else could a Democrat lose? Right?

Meanwhile, we’re all supposed to collectively turn a blind eye when Democrat wins an extremely close election under suspicious circumstances. When that happens, we’re told that election fraud is a myth, that our elections are perfectly secure, and if you dare ask questions, you’ll get censored by social media because you are a threat to democracy!

But election fraud is not a myth. In fact, 1,412 confirmed cases of election fraud have been documented in the Election Fraud Database maintained by the Heritage Foundation’s legal center. According to the Heritage Foundation, the database “provides a sampling of recent election fraud cases, demonstrates the vulnerabilities within the electoral process and the need for reforms to secure free and fair elections for the American people.” Of the 1,412 confirmed cases they’ve documented, there have been 1,219 convictions.

As bad as this sounds, it’s not even the entirety of the problem. “The database doesn’t list potential fraud discovered by election officials and others that is never investigated or prosecuted, and it obviously cannot list fraud that goes undetected when states with poor security don’t have the tools in place to even realize such fraud is occurring,” Hans Von Spakovksy of the Heritage Foundation explains.

The database proves just how important election integrity is and why more states must pass commonsense measures to ensure our elections truly are fair and accurate.

Teen Girl Calls for Change After Encountering Naked Man in YMCA Shower Room

Rebecca Phillips, 17, testifies in front of Santee City Council

A story out of California illustrates the degree to which “transgender rights” are little more than a license to allow grown men to expose their naked bodies to young girls. A couple of weeks ago, a 17-year-old girl was in the shower room of the Santee, California, YMCA when she witnessed a naked man in the shower room. Her report of the incident drew only irritation from the YMCA staff, who told her that the “woman” she saw had a right to be there.

As San Diego’s KUSI News reported:

Recently, 17-year-old Rebecca Phillips visited the Santee YMCA to workout after work, as she routinely does.

But this time, as she was showering, she encountered a naked man inside the women’s locker as she was showering….

She ran into a stall to hide and change, before informing staff of the naked man freely using the women’s locker room.

Staff said the man, who claims to be transgender, is allowed to shower wherever he wants. Since he identifies as a girl, the naked man chose to use the women’s locker room. Then, the Director of Membership for San Diego County YMCA’s, Teri Maas, called Phillips and informed her she was never in danger with the naked man in the locker room.

Speaking to the Santee City Council last week, Phillips broke down crying as she related the incident.

She told the members of the council that while hiding in the shower stall waiting for the naked man to leave and fearing for her safety, she thought of her young sister. She sobbed as she said, “I could only think of my five-year-old sister who I bring to this gym during the summer to enjoy their water slides,” adding, “This is the YMCA, where hundreds of children spend their summer afternoons in child care camps. This is the YMCA where my little sister took gymnastics lessons. The locker room was supposed to be her safe haven to gossip with her friends and shower and change.”

As to the Y’s claim that “she was never in danger,” Phillips said, “I was made to feel as though I had done something wrong when I talked to people at the YMCA.” She went on to say that after her father reached out to the YMCA to complain of the incident, “The YMCA wouldn’t let my father speak to the manager of the Santee branch. After waiting several days, he finally received a call from Teri Maas … the Director of Membership for San Diego County. She informed my dad that I was not in any danger at the time of the incident. That I was safe.” She then said:

But I ask you this … I’m assuming all of you either have a wife, a sister, daughters or granddaughters or are a woman yourself. Could you knowingly send an underage girl into a room with a naked male and say that she was not in danger, that she was safe, or more importantly, that this [was] right?

 

Phillips — who despite the palpable fear betrayed in her voice, managed to be clear, articulate, and logical in her comments to the council — identified the real point here. A minor girl forced into the presence of a naked man is not safe — and is not right.

When “transgender” activists began demanding a few years ago that men who identify as women should have the “right” to use the bathrooms, locker rooms, and changing rooms corresponding to their “gender identity,” right-thinking individuals and organizations (including The New American) warned that minor girls would become victims. Those warnings were pooh-poohed by LGBTQ activists and the mainstream media. And yet, here we are, again — because this is not the first time, and it won’t be the last time.

It is every decent parent’s nightmare: having a grown man expose his naked body to your minor daughter. In saner times and normal circumstances, such depraved behavior would result in the offending male winding up spending time in jail, the hospital, or both. But both sanity and normalcy appear to have taken the last train out of town before 2023. Because while it is illegal for an adult male to expose his naked body to a minor girl, it is now considered perfectly legal for him to do so as long as he “identifies” as a woman at the moment he engages in that very behavior.

When Phillips sat down with KUSI’s Hunter Sowards for a segment of Good Evening San Diego, she said that her goal in sharing her story is to “spark change in San Diego County.” She told Sowards that although the YMCA offers many wonderful programs, “they’ve gone too far” by having a policy allowing grown men to shower with minor girls.

So far, the YMCA appears to be standing by the policy, albeit with some notable squishiness. In a statement to KUSI, the YMCA of San Diego County wrote:

We are aware of a situation involving two members in the locker room of the Santee YMCA earlier this month. The comfort and safety of all our members is our highest priority.

As a community focused organization, we strive to meet the needs of all individuals. We recognize that birth and gender identity are sensitive subjects. We rely on subject matter experts, laws, and guidelines established by the State of California to ensure our policies are welcoming and respectful for all community members.

As part of this commitment to ensure all individuals feel comfortable, we are reviewing [locker] room floorplans across all facilities within our association. Our goal is to ensure that everyone has access to additional privacy if desired and needed.

As KUSI points out in its report, the Y’s policy is the direct result of a decision by San Diego County in May of 2022 to redefine what it means to be a woman. As KUSI reported Friday, “Supervisors Nathan Fletcher, Terra Lawson-Remer, and Nora Vargas all voted in favor of the ordinance, which has resulted in underage girls like Rebecca Phillips fearing for their safety.”

KUSI is an independent station without any affiliation to a network. As an interesting note, the station broke the mainstream media mold by not calling the man in this case a “woman” or using feminine language (she, her, etc.) to refer to him. The headline for KUSI’s report reads, “Santee YMCA allows naked man to use women’s locker room with underage girls.”

The station also wrote, “Carrie Prejean-Boller joined KUSI’s Logan Byrnes on Good Evening San Diego to applaud Rebecca for being a hero, as publicly sharing her experience takes a lot of courage.” It is certainly true that Phillips demonstrated courage to speak out against grown men exposing themselves to minor girls. Sadly, the leaders of both San Diego County and the YMCA lack anything approaching the same courage as this brave young woman.

___________________________________________________________________

Philips remarks to the council:

Good evening Council members and residents of Santee behind me . My name is Rebecca Phillips and I am 17 years old.  I am not a resident of Santee, but I am employed at a local restaurant, the Omelet Factory, and I work out regularly at the Santee YMCA .

Just two weeks after my shift at my job, I went to the gym to swim laps. As I was showering after my workout,  I saw a naked male in the women’s locker room.

I immediately went back into the shower, terrified, and hid behind their flimsy excuse for a curtain until he was gone.

I ran into a bathroom stall to change as quickly as I could, organizing my thoughts to share with the people at the front desk. As I did so, I could only think of my five-year-old sister, who I bring to this gym during the summer….sorry…to enjoy their water slides.

This is the YMCA, where hundreds of children spend their summer afternoons in child care camps.

This is the YMCA where my little sister took gymnastics lessons.

The locker room was supposed to be her safe haven to gossip with her friends, and shower and change.

When I asked YMCA management what they policy was regarding transgenders, they confirmed that the man I saw was indeed allowed wherever he pleased. As long as you are not a red flag on Megan’s Law, the Commie California Sex Offender Registry, a grown male can shower alongside a teenage girl at your YMCA location here in Santee.

I was made to feel as though I had done something wrong when I talked to people at the YMCA.

Somehow, the indecent exposure of a male to a female minor was an inconvenience to them.

When my dad spoke to the sheriff’s office, they told him they should never allow me to shower there ever again.

The YMCA wouldn’t let my father speak to the the manager of the Santee branch.

She informed my dad that I was not in any danger at the time of the incident. That I was safe.

But I ask you this…I’m assuming all of you have either a wife, a sister,  daughters or granddaughters or are a woman yourself.

Could you knowingly send an underage girl into a room with a naked male and say she was not in danger, that she was safe, or more importantly, that this right?

The safety of children, girls, is on the chopping block.

And this issue is not unique to one political party. Both Democrats and Republicans whom I have shared the story with have all been equally disgusted.

So, I implore you all to take action. With great privilege comes great responsibility.

80 Illinois County Sheriffs Will Refuse to Enforce New Gun Laws

At Least 80 Illinois County Sheriffs Will Refuse to Enforce State's New Gun Laws

BY RICK MORAN

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

At least 80 county sheriffs and prosecutors have vowed not to enforce the new Illinois gun control law that bans 170 kinds of semi-automatic rifles and places limits on ammunition magazines.

“The right to keep and bear arms for the defense of life, liberty, and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people,” said Iroquois County Sheriff Clinton Perzee. “I, among many others, believe that [House Bill 5471] is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution,” he added.

Perzee said he would not use his jail to detain people solely for violating the new gun law.

“[N]either myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law-abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with non-compliance of this Act,” Perzee said.

Governor J.B. Pritzker reminded the sheriffs that they took an oath to uphold the law. “As law enforcement, that’s their job and I expect them to do that job,” Pritzker said.

“It’s political grandstanding by elected officials. These are elected sheriffs,” Pritzker said during an evening interview with MSNBC.

Illinois gun rights groups are lining up to sue the state over the law. The “Protect Illinois Communities Act” bans 170 brands of semi-automatic rifles, limits ammunition magazines in pistols and rifles, and forces those with legal semi-automatic rifles to register their guns by Jan. 1, 2024.

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul isn’t worried about sheriffs not enforcing the law. Center Square:

Attorney General Kwame Raoul said Friday if local law enforcement won’t act, someone will.

“As law enforcement agencies, there’s overlapping jurisdiction as well, so if they don’t do their jobs, there are other people there to do the job,” Raoul said.

Rhonda Ezell, who was a lead plaintiff in a case several years ago successfully challenging Chicago gun restrictions, said gun owners in Illinois need to stand up for their rights.

“They don’t care what color you are, where you reside, where you live, where you work. Their goal is to disarm America and they made that very clear,” Ezell told The Center Square.

What we have in Illinois is a public relations gambit versus the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. The only people who are affected by the new law are law-abiding citizens who will be forced to register their legal firearms. Are criminals and gang members going to turn in their guns or register their firearms? Pritzker and those who support him should stop talking about how “safe” Illinois is going to be after the passage of this law.

Lake & McHenry County Scanner:

St. Clair County Sheriff Richard Watson said in a statement he’s disappointed with the enactment of the law.

“I do not believe we should limit the protections that have been guaranteed to law-abiding citizens in the United States Constitution,” Watson said. “I will be supportive to any constitutional challenges that may occur.”

Watson did not explicitly say he would not enforce the measure as other sheriffs have.

Without an injunction blocking the measure, guns would need to be registered by the end of the year or owners could be charged with a Class 2 felony.

The Warning Christians Critically Need: Bethel, New Age, and the New Apostolic Reformation.

 

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a popular and fast-growing new movement of Christians who emphasize signs and wonders and teach that God is giving a new revelation through new apostles and prophets. But is this biblical Christianity? This stuff used to be fringe. Now it's probably in your church in some way. Why is this dangerous, and how can you spot it? I talk with Holly Pivec and Doug Geivett, the authors of Counterfeit Kingdom, about this concerning movement.

Help Your Kids Think Critically

I got the great privilege to interview Elizabeth Urbanowicz, the founder of Foundation Worldview, about the tools she and her team have created to teach our kids critical thinking and life skills. I LOVE this stuff! Foundation Worldview is a Comparative Worldview Curriculum for kids and teens. Several years into Elizabeth's teaching experience, she realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. So she did something about it! I ask her about this curriculum, discuss my personal interest in it, ask about parents that might feel discouraged, and overall how and why it's important to teach our kids -now more than ever!- about truth and critical thinking.

Is it Harmful to Not Affirm Someone's Chosen Identity?

Otherkin, gender fluid, Trans-species, transgender... and everything in between. A question that people have asked me about this is… so what? Who is this hurting? People just live their lives and are just doing what makes them happy. Why do I care to speak out against something like this when people are just living their truth? And I have to say that this is a fair question. If we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize what's true. I address this and more in this video.

If There is no Free Speech, There is no Real Thought

We're finding more and more people embracing blatant lies thinking it's the high moral ground. As language becomes less expressive, minds are more easily controlled. Apathy makes people prefer the false peace of conformity to the tensions of liberty. Whatever and whoever has the power can pressure you into believing their version of truth.... even if they're flat-out lies. Anyone who opposes this is viewed as backward and ignorant. We live in a world where there is more and more intense social pressure to accept that there is no such thing as objective truth. There's only power. Whoever holds the power decides what is true and false. The value of truth claims depends on who's making them. More and more people are knowingly believing lies out of fear of opposing them. In possibly one of my favorite interviews I've done so far, Greg Koukl from Stand to Reason addresses free speech and what this really means.

Critical Race Theory, BLM, Equity, Inclusion, Whiteness, and Beyoncé With Monique Duson

Monique Duson, who spent two decades advocating for Critical Race Theory and is the founder of the Center for Biblical Unity, joins me to discuss BLM, microaggressions, marxism, equity, inclusion, and MUCH more. Monique breaks down the movements we're seeing in social justice, and she explains how it differs from the Gospel. We both see that racism is a serious issue. But CRT is not the answer. You can't become a gaslighting racist to get rid of racism. This isn't about politics. It's about what Biblical justice and unity look like in the eyes of God. Hope you have your popcorn. We don't hold back.

Gun Control & Speech Control are the Same in America

BY DAN WOS

SEE: https://www.ammoland.com/2023/01/gun-control-speech-control-same-in-america/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- When Totalitarians want to control speech and manipulate the narrative, they create one source of information and eliminate all those that contradict their preferred views.

Many people are starting to recognize the similarities between Hitler’s strategies and the left-wing cancel culture. Facebook’s virtual incarcerations, Google’s controlled search results and YouTube’s de-platforming tactics seem to be the new vehicles for controlling speech and limiting personal expression. Hitler’s mandatory reading of Mein Kampf and his 25-year publication called Völkischer Beobachter, (“People’s Observer”) look very similar to our modern-day “Mainstream Media’s” “one size fits all” approach to news-making. Only producing one version of January 6th and one opinion on guns are just a couple of examples of their attempts at manipulating your belief process. The modern landscape may look different, and technology has changed, but the control strategies look eerily similar to Hitler’s in the early 1940s.

Recently, my very own show, The Loaded Mic, has been removed from the YouTube platform with no explanation other than the generic “violating community standards.” I quickly realized that within the past few weeks, these attacks on American voices have become rampant. The attacks are being leveled on conservatives and the firearms community like never before. They use the “3 strikes and you’re out” method but it would seem, only for procedural purposes. Eventually, the targeted sites get shut down. Manipulating the narrative is an attempt to eventually change reality. Although guns can’t be taken away in America, eliminating them from the conversation seems to be the chosen alternative for shaping society’s views on the topic. Who would’ve thought that we as Americans would’ve allowed this ideology to infect our culture the way it has?

The Loaded Mic discusses gun legislation, American culture, and its relationship with guns along with political and social topics of the day. My primary focus has been shining a spotlight on the demonization of firearms in America and exposing the anti-gun media strategies. My voice is the exact thing the enemies of free speech do not want. but I’m not the only one. Several others have been attacked for their speech as well, including:

“Over the past year YouTube has proven that they will adjust, and enforce, their policies to suit the political agenda of the Democrats. It is now crystal clear they do not want “our brand” of free speech on their platform, and it’s our duty to ensure conservative voices aren’t silenced.” ~Bob from pewtang.com

“I’ve had three YouTube channels shut down and deleted for simply going against the chosen narrative of the regime by asking questions about vaccines, January sixth, and the election. One of the channels held all the content for American Women who Bear Arms, a pro-2A channel and related website.” ~Jon James – Freedom’s Pep Rally Host at Right America Media

“I was censored from YouTube and had my channel closed for simply discussing with others about the questions and concerns we had with the vaccine mandates. The left will always tell you who and what they fear by what they attack. If they can censor me, just imaging what else they have censored. We need to keep fighting and keep speaking as the left will never stop coming for our freedoms.” ~Jerry Cirino – Founder and Host of The Fides Show at Right America Media

The good news is the Speech-Nazis are revealing their frustration with these new attacks. With Twitter in new hands, conservative and firearm podcasts popping up everywhere, gun sales skyrocketing, and real Americans speaking out, the “cancel culture” behavior appears to be more like a child kicking and screaming than an effective way of changing society. Our fight has only just begun. Thank God our Founders had the foresight to see these tyrants coming over 200 years away and to create The Bill of Rights.

The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.

Rhode Island: Hamas-linked CAIR virtue signals over racist flyers in North Kingstown

BY LARRY ESTAVAN

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2023/01/rhode-island-hamas-linked-cair-virtue-signals-over-racist-flyers-in-north-kingstown;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Corey Saylor, the Director of Research and Advocacy at the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has given us his reaction to the distribution of racist flyers in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.

So this is a group that has become more active in the last few years. They recently had a march in Maine where they held up anti-Somali flyers.

It is unusual for CAIR ever to provide any information in its appearances on the news, but based on this clue about a demonstration in Maine, we see that Saylor is talking about the Nationalist Social Club 131.

The NSC 131 is not acting against Muslims. Whatever objections these Nazis have to Somalis are due to the fact that the Somalis are black.

It should be a member of the Jewish community who makes a statement about the flyers, not CAIR.

The truth is that CAIR has more in common with the NSC 131 on the subject of Jews than it would have us believe. As a group, CAIR stands with Jew-haters including Zarha Billoo, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, the BDS movement, and Hamas.

Of course, CAIR would counter by saying that it is criticizing Israel and Zionists, not all Jews. But this fails to convince. After all, when is CAIR going to condemn an anti-Semitic imam who is reciting the genocidal passages from the Hadith (such as Sahih Muslim 6985)?

Apparently, CAIR will never condemn Louis Farrakhan for his incitement against the Jews. Even when presented with a golden opportunity.

If Corey Saylor is implying that the NSC 131 is cowardly, he should consider how vulnerable CAIR is to accusations of cowardice.

For example, CAIR never said anything after it kicked off a series of events that resulted in an underage girl receiving rape threats.

When the entire town of Dearborn, Michigan, including local news camera crews, were coming down on one man for a Facebook post, CAIR thought that was appropriate, and never said anything against it.

CAIR defamed a sitting judge on TV in order to overturn a legal decision. CAIR then had the TV station pursue the judge to her new job and broadcast CAIR’s demand that she be fired.

CAIR will have a chance to test its mettle in court soon because it is being sued for defamation in New Jersey. Not exactly a badge of courage.

Is bravery the reason CAIR has yet to issue a condemnation of a newly converted Muslim who attacked police officers on New Year’s Eve? Because when a similar thing happened again a few days later, CAIR issued a statement in support of the assailant. Is that bravery or just plain nerve?

CAIR has more in common with the NSC 131 than lack of courage. Like that small band of Nazis, CAIR strews its messages all over the country; the only difference is that CAIR does it on TV. All of CAIR’s TV appearances are self-promotion. CAIR litters the nation’s airwaves with its statements about things in the news that have nothing to do with its stated mission.

And while the NSC 131 hates Jews and blacks, CAIR hates white people. CAIR uses its media access to attack individual people several times each month. There are a hundred examples from the last five years. The targets are almost all white.

Congratulations on confirming the warnings of the NSC 131.

Corey Saylor says the neighborhood would reject the NSC131 if they knew what the Nazi group was about. But that is also true of CAIR. The public should reject CAIR for the incompetent, racist, terror-tied anti-American group that it is.

“North Kingstown police investigating white supremacist flyer in the neighborhood,” by Tolly Taylor, WPRI, January 5, 2023 

NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — The North Kingstown Police Department is investigating a white supremacist flyer distributed in the town, Target 12 has learned.

Captain John Urban said the department received an email on Tuesday from a resident on Wickham Road, who wrote that he found a flyer from a neo-Nazi group called Nationalist Social Club 131 inside a “plastic ziplock bag with a rock, presumably thrown from a car to recruit additional members.”

The man added that the discovery in his driveway was “unacceptable” and that he doesn’t want the town to be “threatened by such groups.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights group, lists the Nationalist Social Club as a hate group on its website. Photos of the flyer obtained by Target 12 described the group as “pro-white” and said the group seeks men of “European descent in the New England area.”

The Anti-Defamation League said the neo-Nazi group “espouses racism and antisemitism,” and in 2021 “disbanded all chapters outside of the New England area and are now focused solely on a six-state geographic area that includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.”…

CALIFORNIA Governor Newsom Claims State That Bans Cars and Speech Offers ‘Freedom For All’

The Inauguration Ceremony of Governor Newsom

A celebration of freedom, democracy, and diversity; WITH EXCEPTIONS :

You can do anything in California except open a business, walk down the street, or buy a home.

Gov. Gavin Newsom, the democratic choice of the enlightened ballot harvesters of California, desperately wants to be president. Despite pledging not to run against Biden, he’s continuing to posture by announcing an “anti-Jan 6” march (whatever the hell that is) for his inauguration. The one-party governor of one of the most corrupt states in America then spent his speech ranting about Republicans in other states.

California’s unelected governor wants to reframe freedom to mean mandatory masks and car bans. Not to mention state censorship of online speech.

Freedom is slavery, slavery is freedom.

Gavin Newsom triumphantly marched toward California’s statehouse to deliver an inaugural speech that celebrated California’s freedoms and the state’s resistance to forces that “want to take the nation backward.”

“More than any people, in any place, California has bridged the historical expanse between freedom for some, and freedom for all,” he said under cloudy but dry skies for the first time in days.

“Freedom is our essence, our brand name – the abiding idea that right here anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything.”

Except for working freelance, driving a truck, buying a car, getting disposable utensils, buying a fur coat, installing a gas stove, or any of the tens of thousands of things that the Democrat one-party system has banned in some or all of the state.

You can do anything in California except open a business, walk down the street, gas up your car or buy a home. It’s the land of dreams, the hotel you check into and then escape through the back window.

California is so incredibly free that, like North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela, everyone is running away.

Gov. Newsom has the unique honor of presiding over a population loss every year in office.

“California’s population continues to dwindle. The state’s population declined by 114,000 people from about 39,143,000 in 2021 to 39,029,000 in 2020, new estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau show. It marks the third straight year that California has reported a loss.”

While Texas and Florida, the states he’s attacking, are gaining people, the only folks California is gaining are coming illegally over the border.

That and sex predators.

Unlike other states, Newsom said, California safeguards freedoms like “the freedom for teachers to teach, freedom from litmus tests about their political party or the person they love.”

California safeguards the right of teachers to “love” the kids of their choice. Republican teachers however get fired.

“They make it harder to vote and easier to buy illegal guns. They silence speech, fire teachers, kidnap migrants, subjugate women, attack the Special Olympics, and even demonize Mickey Mouse,” he said about conservative leaders like DeSantis. “All camouflaged under a hijacking of the word ‘freedom.’”

Whereas in California, Mickey Mouse can expose himself to children. Freedom!

In California, public school teachers, whose insane salaries are subsidized by property taxes no new residents can afford to pay unless they’re millionaires, can groom 9-year-olds. Freedom!

In California, vagrants and junkies have a right to camp in front of your home, but you have to wait 3 years to get a permit to have any work done. Freedom!

In California, a race riot is a civil right while trying to defend yourself against them is a crime. Freedom!

In California, shoplifting is legal, but opening a business isn’t. Freedom!

Wait, why is everyone fleeing the land of the fee and the home of the slave? Wait for the reparations. Stay for the car ban. Or the mandatory ethnic studies. And the race riots. And the tax hikes.

Big population drops in L.A., San Francisco transform state – Los Angeles Times

Why are you leaving the home of freedom? Why?

Do you have something against systemic racism, child abuse, mentally ill vagrants smoking crack, high taxes, and no legal rights whatsoever, you reactionary bigot? You’re taking the nation “backward”.

And California is going backward. Instead of, Go West, Young Man, it’s now Go East.

YOUR MONEY IS NOT SAFE! – Cashless BAIL-INS & What It Means For You!

Josh Sigurdson talks with Kirk Elliott Ph.D. about the most recent moves to destroy financial freedom as we see a massive global currency shift for the history books in 2023 and the creation of a cashless society.

As the Federal Reserve moves to launch its digital currency this year, we also see members of the FDIC openly calling for misleading the public about their lack of actual funds as well as pushing for bail-in regimes where they could essentially just empty your bank account to pay for their debts. This is an alarming development for most, but for many of us, it is simply a vindication of what we've been warning about for years.

Tie this in with a new world reserve currency system like BRICS and the energy crisis teamed with a supply chain crisis and inflation and it's the perfect monetary storm.

In this video, Kirk Elliott Ph.D. breaks down the dangers and the solutions to this epic problem and what people should know right now to save themselves from what's to come.

AARP EXPOSED: The Radical Leftist Roots of the ‘American Association of Retired Persons’ How older generations unwittingly prop up the far-Left agenda.

BY THOM NICKELS

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/the-radical-leftist-roots-of-the-american-association-of-retired-persons/;

When my parents (who were part of America’s so-called “Greatest Generation”) were in their 50s, they seemed much older than the 50-plus people I know today. American society was not so youth conscious then; there were no nubile Calvin Klein faces in magazine ads because teenagers and people in their 20s had not yet been enshrined as humanity’s ideal age.

In my parents’ era, older people looked and acted very old, and they dressed very old.

The men – except for the occasional dandy – had little taste in fashion. While they may have used lotions like Vaseline Hair Tonic, the men in the 1950s and ‘60s looked 45 by the time they were 26. They wore baggy trousers, smoked and drank to excess, and rarely exercised outside of playing golf or backyard croquette. The women of that era followed a similar course with their fox fur wraps, mink coats, and pillbox hats with netting in the front.

Baby boomers – the children of the ’60s who gifted the world with the sexual revolution and Woodstock – revolutionized the idea of what it means to be older. As most glitzy magazines would have us believe, boomers normalized the use of vitamins, plastic surgery, Botox, Viagra, and regular workouts at home or in gyms, thereby causing many to believe that 60 is really the new 40 and that 70 is the new 50, and so forth.

The mostly liberal Democrat-leaning Boomers also came up with the concept of ageism as a form of discrimination. Ageism joined racism and sexism as major societal sins.

Ageism, of course, is defined as discrimination or negative stereotyping based on chronological age. The concept was mainstreamed with the help of Maggie Kuhn (1905-1995), the founder of the Gray Panthers, an organization devoted to the rights of the elderly. Kuhn founded the Gray Panthers after being forced to retire from a job when she turned 65. That experience led to Kuhn becoming a leader in the fight against age discrimination.

And fight she did, especially with her motto, “Age and Youth in Action,” a philosophy that encouraged older (usually widowed) women to have relationships with much younger men. Kuhn herself lived with a young man in his twenties while in her eighties in the Germantown section of Philadelphia.

After Kuhn’s death, the Gray Panthers gradually dwindled and disappeared from the scene. In the 1970s it had over 100,000 members in more than 30 states. It was a time when Kuhn made regular appearances on programs like The Phil Donahue Show and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.

A recent New York Times piece on Kuhn put it this way:

Kuhn and the Gray Panthers have been so forgotten that it’s almost difficult to recall a time when advocacy groups for older people pursued a broader vision of a just society. But the need for intergenerational alliances not just to save Social Security, but also to achieve health care for all, to battle climate change, to combat race- and gender-based violence, to defy ageism and to push for a more equitable and humane economy is urgent. Old people have been organized radicals before; they can be so again.

The Times’ comment pretty much summarizes why the Gray Panthers faded into obscurity: the organization did itself in because it embraced a host of umbrella leftist causes.

Climate change and gender-based violence have nothing to do with the problems of aging.

Or do they?

According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), they do. AARP, founded in 1958 as a non-partisan non-profit, claims it is non-partisan because it does not donate directly to the Democrat party. Yet the organization explicitly supports causes embraced by progressive Democrats, including the far-out notion that climate change is responsible for the rise of infectious diseases worldwide.

In 2012, AARP endorsed Obamacare. The Wall Street Journal at that time called attention to this fact and reported that at least 71 emails were exchanged between AARP and the White House.

Most people who join AARP do so because of the organization’s hotel and motel discounts and are blithely unaware of its alignment with progressive causes. In the Biden era, of course, these progressive causes have been pushed so extensively that most of them appear to be thoroughly mainstream and uncontested.

While conservative alternative organizations to AARP exist, like the Association of Mature American Citizens, AARP is the federally-funded market standard bearer. Yet one could also say that AARP is the direct descendent of Maggie Kuhn’s Gray Panthers, although dressed up a little differently and mainstreamed for maximum potential.

Maggie Kuhn’s work undoubtedly helped change some of the language surrounding age. One thinks how outdated refrains like “old geezer,” “old fogy,” “old maid and, to a much lesser extent, “dirty old man” have fallen out of the official lexicon. All of these words point to negative stereotypes and negative connotations. (Why, for instance, is it any worse to be a dirty old man than it is to be a dirty young man?)

Scientists say that by the middle of this century, we may see 20- to 40-year leaps in the average life span, thanks to advanced drugs, biotherapies, and the cure of many degenerative diseases. While that may be good news to many, what does that mean in terms of quality of life issues?

What sense would it make if the world were full of healthy 90-year-olds walking around with nothing to do? Living longer in a world where the national economy continues to worsen and where personal finances plummet, would be a gamble.

Bioconservatives like Daniel Callahan and Leon Kass take a dim view of biotechnological progress that could increase the human life span to 150.

Callahan believes that “There is no human social good coming from the conquest of death.” Kass, the controversial former head of President George W. Bush’s Council on Bioethics, says that “the finitude of human life is a blessing for every human individual, whether he knows it or not.”

San Francisco author Lillian Rubin, who died at age 90 in 2014, wrote that she was sick of the mainstream media singing the praises of the joys of old age. In her book, 60 On Up: The Truth About Aging in America (Beacon Press), Ms. Rubin writes that because people are living longer they are possibly facing 35 years or more of retirement.

“And it ain’t all gonna be a walk on the beach,” she insists. “I can hardly remember a time getting together with friends in their late 60s and older when they weren’t talking about getting tired, bored with what they were doing, what they were going to do in retirement…”

As for the ads in the ubiquitous AARP magazine that most Americans begin receiving on their 50th birthdays, Ms. Rubin says they are among the worst offenders, “featuring thin, barely wrinkled, happy gray-haired couples on the beach. Come on,” she wrote, “this is not life!”

In AARP’s world, it may be a life, especially if that gray-haired couple are card-carrying Democrats.

2022 Closes with A Nation On the Precipice of Ruination

America Burning Civil Disobedience iStock-ohnnyfrs 511386474

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- As one more year draws rapidly to a close in these first three decades of the 21st Century, the United States stands precariously at the edge of an abyss.

One Branch of the Federal Government, the U.S. Supreme Court, at least recognizes the danger and has prevented the Country from falling over the precipice.

After a century of sidestepping the issue, the U.S. Supreme Court established, in three precedential case law decisions, what had been visibly plain in the language of the Second Amendment itself all along if one would only look.

All three cases were handed down in the first three decades of the 21st Century. They include:

District of Columbia vs. Heller in 2008, McDonald vs. City of Chicago in 2010, and New York State Rifle & Pistol Association vs. Bruen in 2022.

These three cases, together, stand for the following propositions, now black letter law:

  • The right of armed self-defense is an individual right unconnected with one’s service in a militia
  • The right of armed self-defense is a universal right, applicable to both the States and the Federal Government.
  • The right of armed self-defense applies wherever a person is, inside the home or outside it.

These three legal axioms are, together, the singular Law of the Land.

But for this Law, the Republic would have fallen into ruin, this Century.

There would be nothing to rein in a rogue Congress, a rogue Biden Administration, or rogue jurisdictions like those around the Country: New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, Washington State, Washington D.C., Oregon, Hawaii, and several others.

The rot from those State jurisdictions and from the Federal Government would eventually infect many other states.

Forces inside the Government and outside it, both here and abroad—wealthy and powerful, malevolent and malignant—constantly machinate to destroy the right to armed self-defense. These forces will not tolerate an armed citizenry. The existence of an armed citizenry contradicts their end goal of a neo-feudalistic world government. The armed citizenry precept deviates from their plan of world conquest.

Their goal for the 21st Century is a return to the political, social, and economic feudalistic construct operating in the world of the 5th through 15th Centuries—the Middle Ages.

These ruthless elements have declared——

  • The United States can no longer continue as a free Constitutional Republic;
  • The American people must be subjugated; and
  • Any thought of an armed citizenry must be erased from the collective memory of the American people.

The ashes of a once powerful, respected, sovereign, independent United States are to be commingled with the ashes of other western nations.

The EU and the British Commonwealth Nations are a step in the direction of that world empire.

The neoliberal democratic world order is conceived as——

  • One devoid of defined geographical borders,
  • One absent national government; and
  • One bereft of any defining history, heritage, culture, ethos, or Judeo-Christian ethic by which the people of one nation may easily distinguish themselves from any other.
Bill of Rights
Bill of Rights

Will the U.S. fall victim to totalitarianism as have the nations of the EU and British Commonwealth, as have India and China, and as have most all countries in the Middle East? Let us hope not.

The U.S. need not fall victim.

The U.S. has something all other nations lack: a true Bill of Rights.

Our Bill of Rights consists of a set of natural laws: fundamental, unalienable, unmodifiable, immutable, illimitable, and eternal.

Within this Country’s Bill of Rights rests a Cardinal Truth. And, of this Truth——

  • The Founders were aware of it.
  • The Republic they founded is grounded on it.
  • The strength and power of our Country and the staying power of our Constitution is a testament to it.

All Americans should imprint this Truth on their collective memory:

“What isn’t created by man cannot lawfully be taken from man by other men, nor by any temporal artifice of man: Government, for the sanctity, inviolability of man’s Selfhood, his Soul, and his Spirit do not belong to the Government; they cannot be bestowed on man by Government; and they cannot be severed from man by Government.”

Government is a dangerous enterprise.

Our Federal Government is no longer reliable. It is entirely rogue. It has forgotten the people whose interests it was created to serve. It serves only its own interests, those special interests that fund the campaign coffers, and foreign, secretive agencies of whom the public has no inkling.

  • With this Federal Government, the American people have got “a tiger by the tail.” It is difficult to hold onto, but one daren’t let it go lest it bites the people. Best to destroy it if we can no longer hold onto it.
  • That “Tiger,” our Federal Government, is a creation of the American people and exists only to serve the people—the true and sole sovereign over the Federal Government.
  • The presence of an armed citizenry serves as both evidence of its sovereignty over the Government and the mechanism by which it may lawfully constrain it, contain it, or curtail it if the Government loses its way and turns against the people.
  • The Right to Armed Self-Defense is Natural Law, a God-given right bestowed on man by the Divine Creator.
  • Government cannot lawfully modify Natural Law, Ignore it, Rescind it, or formally Repeal it.
  • Since armed self-defense is a Natural Law Right, the U.S. Supreme Court—in Heller, McDonald, and Bruen—didn’t make new law. The rulings of the three seminal High Court cases simply make explicit what is tacit in the language of the Second Amendment.

Unfortunately, many jurisdictions have failed to recognize, or otherwise have failed to acknowledge and accept, the strictures of the Second Amendment.

That necessitated the intervention of the High Court. In one Second Amendment case after another—from Heller to McDonald and then to Bruen—the Court has ordered States to uphold the strictures of the Second Amendment. Yet, many refuse to do so.

Indeed, many jurisdictions reject Heller, McDonald, and Bruen outright. But no jurisdiction does so more emphatically, contemptuously, and openly than New York. And a recent ruling of the Second Circuit is disheartening and unnerving.

Life-Saving Organ Transplants Denied to Unvaccinated People

The idea that a person in need of a life-saving surgery would be denied that procedure by a doctor or a hospital administrator simply because the individual opted out of getting a COVID-19 shot seems surreal. It sounds unethical at the very least, criminal at worst, and certainly not something that one would imagine could happen in America. Yet, hard as it is to believe, this medieval-sounding scenario distinguished by callous disregard for human life has been played out on numerous occasions in the United States during the past two years.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

In one highly publicized case, Leilani Lutali of Colorado Springs was denied a kidney transplant by the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora until she and her donor agreed to be injected with COVID shots. In North Carolina, Chad Carswell of Burke County was also denied a kidney transplant by Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem until both he and his donor agreed to get COVID shots.1 2 3 5 6 7 8 9 10

In Ohio, unvaccinated Michelle Vitullo was denied a liver transplant by the Cleveland Clinic. In Washington, unvaccinated Derek Kovick was also denied a liver transplant by the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. In Massachusetts, unvaccinated DJ Ferguson was denied a heart transplant by Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.4 7 9 11

In a more recent case, 14-year-old unvaccinated Yulia Hicks was denied a kidney transplant by Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina. The young girl, who is originally from Ukraine, suffers from a rare degenerative kidney condition known as Senior Loken Syndrome.12 13

Yulia’s mother reportedly asked a hospital employee, “So basically you’re telling us if she does not get the vaccine, then she’s not getting a transplant?” and the employee responded, “Yes, that is the one thing that is holding us up.”12 13 Mrs. Hicks said:

They said the CDC recommendation had been updated at the end of October, and they had to go by the recommendation, and if she didn’t get the vaccine she wouldn’t be getting a transplant at Duke.12

Yulia’s father added:

We’ve been up front the entire time we’ve been seen at Duke, for the last two years, that we were not comfortable with the vaccine, with the COVID-19 vaccine. And so they knew all along that we were not comfortable with this. And it wasn’t a requirement. It was… a recommendation, according to [the doctors] at first, until the very end.13

The father said that his daughter underwent a “nine-hour [medical] workup” in October and that that was when the doctors and hospital officials “decided or told us that this was going to be a highly recommended-slash-requirement for her to get a vaccine before she would get the transplant.”13

“There’s no sympathy whatsoever from any of them,” said Yulia’s mother. “It’s just strong-arming us: give her the vaccine, and you’ll get the transplant.”12

Some Organ Transplant Candidates Refuse COVID Shots Afraid of Life-Threatening Adverse Reactions

One of the concerns about the COVID vaccines (notably the mRNA shots) expressed by transplant candidates has to do with the risk of developing life-threatening inflammatory heart conditions known as myocarditis and pericarditis.14

The ethics of denying organ transplant candidates life-saving transplant surgery because they do not want to take the risk with potentially life-threatening medical interventions, such as vaccination, is the subject of heated debates. Which side you come down on may depend on your view of the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine being required as a condition of getting an organ transplant.

Yet, it is hard not to see at least some degree of cruelty and grim irony in condemning someone to death simply because they do not wish to be injected with a biological product like the COVID shot, which is known to cause severe adverse reactions, including fatal ones. It places people in desperate need between a rock and a hard place. It just seems wrong.

Some Surgeries Rejected for Fear of Transfusions With Blood ‘Tainted’ by Vaccination

Interestingly, while there are some unvaccinated (for COVID) people in need of an organ transplant who are being rejected for the surgery, there are also some unvaccinated people needing surgery who may be reluctant to have the operation for fear of receiving a blood transfusion that could contain blood donated by people who have gotten COVID mRNA shots.15 16

“The problem is right now we have no choice,” said Swiss naturopath George Della Pietra, founder of the nonprofit SafeBlood Donation, which matches unvaccinated blood recipients with donors in countries around the world. “I get hundreds of emails asking me, ‘Do you have blood [available], because I have surgery coming up in three weeks,’” Della Pietra said.15

According to an article in the Independent Sentinel, Della Pietra and other unvaccinated people believe that the COVID mRNA shots “contaminate” the blood and cause the “eventual destruction of the immune system.” In short, they believe that blood may be harmful if received from vaccinated people.15

A good example of this occurred recently in New Zealand when the parents of a four-month-old boy refused an operation requiring a blood transfusion for their baby using blood from the New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) because the blood supply would include blood from donors who had received COVID shots.16 An article published by The Vaccine Reaction last week noted:

The parents expressed grave concerns about using blood from donors who had received the COVID shots and said they had more than 20 unvaccinated people who agreed to donate blood to their son for the operation. However, the hospital where the operation would be performed insisted on using donor blood provided by NZBS, which does not separate blood taken from vaccinated and unvaccinated donors.16

“We don’t want blood that is tainted by vaccination. That’s the end of the deal,” said the child’s father. “We are fine with anything else these doctors want to do.”16

While donated blood and plasma must go through a cleansing process before all transfusions, SafeBlood Donation does not believe that the process removes all mRNA ingredients. “I’m talking about graphene oxide and nondeclared inorganic components in the vaccine, which we can see in the blood,” Della Pietra said. “When I see them, I have no idea how we can get rid of them again.”16

Della Pietra thinks that unvaccinated people are getting vaccinated “more or less through the back door… You cannot avoid it anymore.”16

Biomedical Terrorist Organization WHO Accuses Anti-Vaxxers of ‘Anti-Science Aggression,’ Calls Them ‘Killing Force’

The Bill Gates-funded World Health Organization (WHO) is on the rhetorical warpath against “anti-vaxxers” who won’t submit to the mRNA injections, launching a new social media campaign to demonize their opponents.

Via ThinkCivics:

The World Health Organization (WHO) has labeled unvaccinated people a “major killing force globally” in a new campaign being promoted on social media.

The WHO is promoting a new video that targets “anti-vaccine activism” by blasting those who choose not to be vaccinated for supporting “anti-science aggression.”

The video features pediatrician and vaccine advocate Dr. Peter Hotez who laments the “devastating impact of misinformation and disinformation” regarding Big Pharma’s Covid shots.

Virologist Peter Hotez, the useful vector that the WHO uses to launch its attack, is a fat slob from whom no sane person would take medical advice. He admitted to Joe Rogan that he consumes fast food as the staple of his diet, with no regard for nutrition at all.

Here’s a challenge: find a single interview or publication from Public Health™ authority Peter Hotez discussing the negative public health impacts of unchecked obesity and the degradation of the American food supply.

Why would he concern himself with healthy food? Where’s the social control/profit angle for that? Where’s the career advancement angle?

Hotez, whose lab receives Gates Foundation money, has shilled for the vaccine passport/mandatory vaxx/lockdown agenda since the beginning of the pandemic because he knows where his bread gets buttered.

In 2021, Hotez published a “research” paper ostensibly calling for a government crackdown on “anti-science aggression”:

The acceleration of anti-science activities demands not only new responses and approaches but also international coordination. Vaccines and other biomedical advances will not be sufficient to halt COVID-19 or future potentially catastrophic illnesses unless we simultaneously counter anti-science aggression… solutions through biomedicine won’t be sufficient to halt the spread of COVID-19. We must simultaneously dismantle anti-science.

What does “dismantling anti-science” look like, and who’s going to be doing the dismantling? Which entity enjoys a monopoly on violence? Let your imagination run wild.

 

New York Governor Hochul’s Tirade Unleashed On Gun Owners

BY ROGER KATZ

SEE: https://www.ammoland.com/2022/12/new-york-governor-hochuls-tirade-unleashed-gun-owners/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- New York’s Concealed Handgun Improvement Act (CCIA) operates perversely to create further restrictions on an already restrictive Gun Law.

To give Hochul’s blatant refusal to abide by the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court in NYSRPA vs. Bruen a leg to stand on, she attempts to give the public a sense that she cares deeply about the safety concerns of New Yorkers that her amendments to the State’s Gun Law are designed to effectuate that end.

What she delivers to the public, though, is nothing more than an elaborate promo, an infomercial proffered to sell a product. The product she is selling is simply a more tortuous and torturous version of the Sullivan Act that was enacted over one hundred years ago. And, like all promos and infomercials, it is meant to make a profit off a person’s gullibility.

In the instant case, the Sullivan Act is a noose around the necks of free citizens. The Act endangers the life of New Yorkers under the guise of securing life. It is all a charade.

The Daily Caller recites Hochul’s tirade against the High Court and against gun owners of New York, in its article titled, “NY Gov. Hochul Says Law-Abiding Gun Owners Make People Feel Very Unsafe”:

“Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said Friday morning law abiding gun owners make people feel ‘unsafe’ just one day after the Supreme Court overturned a more than century old gun law.

Speaking on CBS This Morning, Hochul said the right to carry outside the home makes individuals feel ‘unsafe’ and seemed to insinuate it should not be allowed.

‘Everybody in America recognizes that there is a problem with gun violence and the people who cheer this, what they say, what they see is, ‘Look there is a problem with gun violence and I, as a law-abiding citizen, want to be able to hold a gun on my person so that I feel safer.’ What do you say to that individual?” the host asked Hochul.

‘I say that makes everyone else feel very unsafe. We don’t know if you’re provoked, you know, you’re in a bar and someone looks at your girlfriend or your boyfriend the wrong way. There are so many triggers. If someone wants to have a legal gun, licensed protection in their home, that is their domain, they can do that, we’ve always allowed that, or for hunting and other purposes,’ Hochul said.’”

‘But to think someone would be able to do this on a subway, in a crowded, tense situation during rush hour? No, we have a right to protect our citizens, not take away your right to own, that’s fine, but where you take it and the ability to conceal it, that’s just going to make things so much more complicated for law enforcement and others.’”

Civilians Do Not Carry Handguns Openly in New York

First, it bears mentioning, but, apparently, only to morons like Hochul, that a holder of concealed handgun carry license does not ever carry his or her handgun openly, in New York, for all the world to see. The Gun Law itself recites the lawful carrying of a handgun, “concealed,” i.e., not openly by those issued concealed handgun carry licenses.

No one in New York is permitted to carry a handgun openly apart from uniformed New York police officers, or other uniformed personnel who fall under specific provisions of the State’s Gun Law.

How, then, can any law-abiding member of the public honestly feel a sense of foreboding that another law-abiding member of the public who happens to possess a concealed handgun carry license is someone to be feared?

The only creature that could realistically understandably “feel unsafe” is a psychopathic criminal who would dare to threaten an innocent member of the public. More than a few criminals and lunatics have met their untimely demise by threatening harm to an undercover police officer or off-duty officer, or to a holder of a valid concealed handgun license.

In fact, a career criminal, who isn’t otherwise a psychotic maniac, and who has some instinct for survival, would never know for certain who is lawfully carrying a handgun concealed and who isn’t, if many more members of the public were carrying, as is their natural law right. Hence, it is reasonable to infer that this would result in a precipitous drop in violent crimes of opportunity.

“Triggers” Anyone?

Second, The notion that a person would go off half-cocked is a “Fever Dream” of the Anti-Second Amendment crowd. The Government would like the public to believe this myth. They like to imagine all sorts of horrors to justify ending the fundamental, unalienable right to armed self-defense. But their wax museum of horrors coming to life is just entertainment. It isn’t grounded in truth. It’s merely a fabrication, it is propaganda; a fictional horror film designed like many such films to create a jump scare. Only the gullible and ignorant Americans would fall for it.

If New York holders of handgun carry licenses were really such a threat to public safety and order, how is it that we never hear Governor Hochul talking about instances of criminal acts of violence committed by these licensees?

She can’t talk about this because there is no instance of this that she can drum up. All such talk of an armed New York citizenry posing a threat to their notion of public safety and public order in their well-ordered society is sheer unadulterated speculation, bordering on delirium.

“If someone wants to have a legal gun, licensed protection in their home, that is their domain, they can do that, we’ve always allowed that.”

Third, Isn’t she nice? Hochul says the Government has always allowed someone “a legal gun in their home.” But wait a minute? Is keeping and bearing arms a Government bestowed privilege or a God-Given Right?

And didn’t the U.S. Supreme Court rule that the right to armed self-defense extends beyond the domain of one’s house, consistent with the meaning of the fundamental, unalienable right to armed self-defense?

Does New York law take precedence over the Second Amendment and the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court? Hochul demonstrates incredible arrogance. How did she get elected to Office anyway?

Activists Sue police state New Jersey Over New Unconstitutional Concealed Carry Law

Welcome to New Jersey NJ

BY F. RIEHL

SEE: https://www.ammoland.com/2022/12/activists-sue-new-jersey-over-new-unconstitutional-concealed-carry-law;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)-The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a federal lawsuit against the State of New Jersey, challenging the state’s new gun control law prohibiting licensed concealed carry in an expanded list of so-called “sensitive places,” and further criminalizes carrying an operable handgun “while in a vehicle.”

Joining SAF are the Firearms Policy Coalition, the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners, and the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, along with three private citizens, Nicholas Gaudio, Jeffrey M. Muller, and Ronald Koons. The plaintiffs are represented by attorney David D. Jensen, David Jensen PLLC, of Beacon, N.Y.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. The case is known as Koons et al v. Reynolds et al.

Named as defendants are Atlantic County Prosecutor William Reynolds, Camden County Prosecutor Grace C. Macaulay, Sussex County Prosecutor Annemarie Taggart, New Jersey Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin, and State Police Supt. Patrick Callahan, in their official capacities.

Shortly after New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed the new legislation on Dec. 22, SAF and its partners quickly filed the lawsuit.

“We are asking for a declaratory judgment against certain tenets of the new legislation,” explained SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “We are also seeking a preliminary and/or permanent injunction restraining the defendants and their officers, agents and other employees from enforcing the challenged segments of the law.

“The specific sections of law violate the right to bear arms protected by the Second Amendment,” he continued. “There is no established historical tradition that could be used to justify these restrictions. This new legislation literally criminalizes licensed concealed carry just about everywhere, making a mockery of the right to bear arms protected by the Second Amendment.”

“New Jersey’s Legislature and Governor have shown that they do not wish to heed the Supreme Court’s guidance as to the bounds of the right to bear arms in Bruen,” said SAF’s Executive Director Adam Kraut.

“Despite clear directives as to a citizens’ right to bear arms, New Jersey continues to thumb its nose at the constitutional rights of its citizens in the name of ‘safety’. Such disregard for the rights of New Jerseyans will not be tolerated. As such, we are seeking to vindicate the rights of our members and the public in an expeditious manner. It is a shame the elected officials of New Jersey have no respect for the enumerated rights of the People and continue to needlessly waste their state’s tax dollars passing unconstitutional laws which render the common person defenseless.”

American Journal of Medicine: Belief in Freedom Can Hurt You

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/culture/robert-spencer/2022/12/21/american-journal-of-medicine-says-a-belief-in-freedom-could-be-hazardous-to-your-health-n1655403;

One way to hoodwink the populace into accepting ever-increasing control by the omnibenevolent and all-seeing federal government is to convince them that freedom and autonomy are bad for you. But surely Leftists wouldn’t stoop that low, would they? Sure they would. PJM’s Ben Bartee had the story on Saturday: the American Journal of Medicine has published a preposterous new study warning that “distrust of the government” and “a belief in freedom” are liable to get you killed. Get back in line, sheep! Don’t put your lives on the line chasing after freedom! Slavery is so much safer!

This errant nonsense was actually published this month in the American Journal of Medicine, proving yet again that academic study in the United States has become irremediably politicized and open to cultural and intellectual fads. An honest investigation of a controverted issue, leading to the acknowledgment of unwelcome truths, is vanishingly rare. The pretext for pushing slavery on Americans is, once again, the COVID-19 vaccine. According to Fortune magazine, this study claims to prove that “if you passed on getting the COVID vaccine, you might be a lot more likely to get into a car crash.”

The study asserts that “unvaccinated people were 72% more likely to be involved in a severe traffic crash — in which at least one person was transported to the hospital — than those who were vaccinated. That’s similar to the increased risk of car crashes for people with sleep apnea, though only about half that of people who abuse alcohol.”

Does the vaccine somehow improve your eyesight and coordination, so that you can more easily get out of scrapes while driving? Oh, nothing like that. Unvaccinated people are more likely to wreck their cars because they’re the sort of people who don’t obey the rules. The study speculates that people who are so headstrong and stubborn as to resist getting a vaccine that is causing young people in perfect health suddenly to drop dead might also “neglect basic road safety guidelines.”

Now, who in his right mind would get behind the wheel and neglect basic safety guidelines? Incorrigible lovers of freedom, of course: “Why would they ignore the rules of the road? Distrust of the government, a belief in freedom, misconceptions of daily risks, ‘faith in natural protection,’ ‘antipathy toward regulation,’ poverty, misinformation, a lack of resources, and personal beliefs are potential reasons proposed by the authors.”

So actually the study is all about why you should be a good conformist and do whatever the government tells you to do, no matter what the obvious risks may be.

This ridiculous and superstitious propaganda is frankly fascist in its warning against “a belief in freedom,” and it’s all designed to sell a shoddy and dangerous product to the weak and gullible. Epoch Times recently released a video entitled “Over 5,000 Cases of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS): Doctors Trying to Determine Why Young People Suddenly Dying.” It features Dr. Michael Ackerman, “a Mayo Clinic genetic cardiologist and the president of the Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) Foundation,” who explains “how COVID and the vaccine affect heart conditions in people under 35.”

Epoch Times also reported on Dec. 8 that “A major new autopsy report has found that three people who died unexpectedly at home with no pre-existing disease shortly after COVID vaccination were likely killed by the vaccine. A further two deaths were found to be possibly due to the vaccine.” Meanwhile, in Germany, “newly released insurance data for 72 million people shows that unexpected deaths have been skyrocketing since the end of 2020. The number of sudden deaths has more than doubled since late 2020, jumping from about 6,000 per quarter to 14,000 currently.” And “officials in Australia are raising the alarm as the country’s excess deaths have soared to an ‘incredibly high’ rate.”

A genuine study has found that “based on passive surveillance reporting in the US, the risk of myocarditis after receiving mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines was increased across multiple age and sex strata and was highest after the second vaccination dose in adolescent males and young men.”

Why do the researchers and academics who wrote the unvaccinated/car crash study, and the American Journal of Medicine that published it, want people to take this dangerous drug? That remains a mystery, although there is likely a profit motive involved along the way. In any case, this study illustrates yet again that some people will believe anything. P. T. Barnum famously said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” Even old Barnum likely never expected that the august American Journal of Medicine would take his words to heart.

Germany: Islam critic Michael Stürzenberger recounts what happened when a Muslim attacked him as police stood by

At our last rally of the year in Bonn on Saturday, I got a punch on the head from a Muslim. Before that, he took a “Palestine” flag out of his jacket. View the video of the attack:

Here are the scenes before that. At minute 4:01, the Muslim comes into the picture and confronts me:

I reported on the egg-throwing and other objects at our recent rallies in Gladbeck and Leipzig, and the misconduct of the local police. He waited, and I thought, he is patient and wants to know something.

At minute 19:10, he asked me if I would take a breath before I speak. Then he said he had been looking for me all along and wanted to know what I wanted anyway if I wanted to get rich. I answered I want a ban on political Islam. He asked for a second time if I wanted to get rich. I answered that he probably didn’t know who he was dealing with: in front of him is a member of the reestablished White Rose, which is fighting against political Islam. We want to make the country safe.

Then he hit me in the face. It was a heavy blow, but fortunately, I have no serious injuries other than a facial bruise and a headache, plus momentary lightheadedness and physical weakness. Initial research revealed that he is probably an amateur kickboxer. The aide who was standing next to me received two slaps in the face and fell down. He now has tinnitus in his ear, two wounds on his face, and bruises on his leg.

Meanwhile, it seems that the Hamburg court is obviously in a hurry to put me in prison, and the deadline is already set for the beginning of next year.

America’s Mom Sherronna Bishop Encounters Unconstitutional FBI Home Invasion

When constitutional conservative Sherronna Bishop stepped into the freedom ring to protect her children from harmful government policies, the FBI used a battering ram to bust down her front door. Known as America’s Mom, Sherronna got involved in politics after her children’s school was conducting mental health evaluations without getting parental consent and teaching graphic Comprehensive Sex Education. She shared her concern with the school board and the Department of Justice (DOJ) retaliated by weaponizing the FBI to carry out fear and intimidation tactics to try to silence her. However, Sherronna fought back and is educating people about their God-given constitutional rights which are never suspended even during a “pandemic.”
