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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Watch the powerful video by Gerald Grosz:

Video Translation

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


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


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


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


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


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


Family liability included!


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


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


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


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

Biden HHS Lays Groundwork for Chemical Castration of Kids

BY TYLER O'NEIL

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

RecommendedBiden HHS Nominee Defended Subjecting Kids to Chemical Castration

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vee haf rools fo covet, Pastor Pawlowski.

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

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

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

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

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

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

He later deleted his tweeted photo.

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

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

They hunted him down like he’s a terrorist.

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

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

Pawlowski wondered when the police would come for him.

He produced a video in advance to release in case.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Seems about right.

Jailhouse interview with Pastor Artur Pawlowski

Calgary Pastor Artur Pawlowski is still in jail.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Leak Shows Disney Employees to Undergo Critical Race Theory Training

Disney EXPOSED For Disgusting Racial Training For Employees 

"Reimagine Tomorrow" Woke Propaganda

Racial training for Disney employees has leaked, and it exposes the absolutely disgusting ideology and woke culture that is embraced at this company.

Disney's anti-racism training program 'Reimagine Tomorrow' has been leaked, and it's going to go over as well with the general public as Coke's "be less white" training slide. On top of sorting employees into "houses" based on race, part of what Disney employees had to do was fill out a survey to find out how "privileged" they actually were. Equity over equality, and other socialist talking points are also presented as goals of The Walt Disney Company. This isn't going to go over well with a lot of investors...

a word salad showing woke, cancel culture, and activist agenda words

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

Disney's critical race theory training docs for employees were revealed by whistleblower Chris Rufo, a conservative activist and documentary filmmaker.

"I've obtained internal documents that will shock you," Rufo wrote on Threadreader.

Pictures of a handbook titled "Reimagine Tomorrow" appear on one of Rufo's Twitter posts with the accompanying message:

"According to a trove of whistleblower materials, Disney has launched a 'diversity and inclusion' program, called 'Reimagine Tomorrow,' which includes trainings on 'systemic racism,' 'white privilege,' 'white fragility,' 'white saviors,' 'microaggressions,' and 'antiracism.'"

Disney, the now owner of such franchises as ESPN, Lucasfilm, Marvel, and ABC, states in their handbook America has a "long history of systemic racism and transphobia" and states its employees should "take ownership of educating yourself about structural anti-Black racism" and "not rely on your Black colleagues to educate you."

The handbook states white colleagues should "work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed."

They need to "listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues" but "not question or debate Black colleagues' lived experience."

One such image in the handbook shows a kid in a wheelchair who cannot see over the fence alongside a person who is standing up looking over the fence watching a soccer game. This image was labeled "equality." It is juxtaposed with another picture of the same kid in a wheelchair with a ramp to see the soccer game. That image is labeled "equity."

Disney states employees must reject "equality" and strive for "equity" or, put another way, "equality of outcome." In so doing, employees are urged to reflect on America's "racist infrastructure" and "think carefully about whether or not wealth" comes from racist means.

Disney suggests its employees should read into "75 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice," which lists groups or activities such as "defund the police," "participate in reparations," "decolonize your bookshelf," and "find and join a local 'white space.'"

Disney has launched several what it calls "affinity groups" that appear loosely defined as a business advocacy group for minorities. Its Latin group is called "Hola," its Asian group is called "Compass," and its Black group is called "Wakanda."

The Walt Disney Corporation has ordered all headquarters employees to attend seminars that inject critical race theory, “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” and “white fragility” into their training. The way that City Journal’s Christopher Rufo describes what’s contained in the whistleblower documents he received from several Disney employees suggests the training regimen is designed to elicit guilt and shame from white employees while falsifying history.

In truth, it’s beyond belief. Disney’s theme parks may be known as “The Happiest Place on Earth”, but you have to wonder for how long.

The core of Disney’s racial program is a series of training modules on “antiracism.” In one, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” the company tells employees that they must “take ownership of educating [themselves] about structural anti-Black racism” and that they should “not rely on [their] Black colleagues to educate [them],” because it is “emotionally taxing.” The United States, the document claims, has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia,” and white employees, in particular, must “work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.” Disney recommends that employees atone by “challeng[ing] colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” such as “All Lives Matter” and “I don’t see color”; they must “listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues” and must “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.”

“Challeng[ing] colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” is only part of the healing process.

In another module, called “What Can I Do About Racism?,” Disney tells employees that they should reject “equality,” with a focus on “equal treatment and access to opportunities,” and instead strive for “equity,” with a focus on “the equality of outcome.” The training also includes a series of lessons on “implicit biases,” “microaggressions,” and “becoming an antiracist.” The company tells employees that they must “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not your wealth, income, treatment by the criminal justice system, employment, access to housing, health care, political power, and education might be different if you were of a different race.” (Author’s emphasis )

Not very subtle, are they? In 18th century America, they were known as “levelers” — those who didn’t care what it took to achieve “equality of outcomes.” The French revolutionaries were great levelers. They used the guillotine to prove how good they were.

Now Disney — whose gigantic impact on American culture cannot be dismissed — wants to poison the minds of employees with this rot. Sadly, the wokeness is bound to seep down into the rest of the corporate culture and ruin the Disney experience for young and old alike.

Orlando Sentinel:

Recently, Disney announced that cast members are now permitted to display tattoos, wear inclusive uniforms and display inclusive haircuts. Disney did all of this in the name of allowing cast members to express themselves.

The problem is, I’m not traveling across the country and paying thousands of dollars to watch someone I do not know express themselves. I am there for the immersion and the fantasy, not the reality of a stranger’s self-expression. I do not begrudge these people their individuality and I wish them well in their personal lives, but I do not get to express my individuality at my place of business.

What’s next, is Disney going to end the rule barring on stage cellphone use by cast members as an infringement on self-expression.

Indeed, this self-described “out-of-touch white American dad” bemoans the loss of Disney’s most valuable resource: the human imagination.

Disney is in the process of taking the woke scalpel to the Jungle Cruise. Trader Sam is out because he might offend certain people. Every grown-up in the room realizes that Trader Sam is not a representation of reality and is meant as a funny and silly caricature. It is no more based in racism than every Disney caricature of an out-of-touch white American dad.

The next time I ride Jungle Cruise I will not be thinking about the gloriously entertaining puns of the skippers, I will be thinking about Disney’s political agenda. That’s a mood killer.

“You will be forced to care,” wrote Eric Erickson about the left’s assault on values. There’s no hiding from them. There is no “escape” with your family — even to Disneyland or Disney World. We are being overwhelmed by propaganda that looks to be as effective as propaganda from Kim Jong-Un’s North Korea. Conformity, “equity,” “equality of outcomes” — the groundwork for ending freedom of thought has already been laid in our schools and even where we work, where we worship, and where we play.

And even our icons like Mickey Mouse will become slaves in service to this ideology.

 

Whistleblower: Dominion Rigged 2020 Election~Biden’s DOJ Moves to Interfere the Maricopa County Election Audit

Rumble — Alex Newman interviews Melissa Carone, a whistleblower and former employee from Dominion. She discusses her observation of several counts of fraud in the 2020 election, including how she overheard her manager discuss fraudulently filling out ballots on Election Night. Carone notes how the media attempted to discredit her allegations and how Dominion tried to silence her. Carone calls for conducting audits in the states where election fraud may have occurred, and she states that Americans cannot wait until 2024. Lastly, Carone discusses her run for Michigan state representative.

WOAH: Biden's DOJ Moves to Interfere the Maricopa County Election Audit

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

PA REP. STEPHANIE BOROWICZ: House Health Committee Receives Reports on Inhumane Taxpayer-Funded Experiments with Aborted Baby Parts at Pitt University

House Health Committee Receives Reports on Inhumane Taxpayer-Funded Experiments with Aborted Baby Parts at Pitt University

Click here to view video.

In consideration of recent federal actions to force American taxpayers to pay for abortions worldwide, this week, the House Health Committee, of which I am a member, convened the fourth in a series of public hearings focused on pro-life and abortion issues.

The topic for Tuesday’s hearing was Fetal Experimentation.

The hearing featured presentations from former abortionist Dr. Kathi Aultman, OB/GYN, Charlotte Lozier Institute Associate Scholar; Jeremy Rich, MD, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; Henry T. Greely, Stanford University Professor of Law, Steering Committee Chair, Center for Biomedical Ethics; and David Daleiden, founder, Center for Medical Progress.

Most of the testimony centered around recent reports of University of Pittsburgh scientists and faculty being deeply involved in taxpayer-funded experiments with aborted baby parts, including Planned Parenthood of Western PA supplying harvested aborted baby parts for the university’s human tissue bank.

Unfortunately, the unethical and inhumane research taking place at Pitt is far from an isolated incident. Last year, Pitt student researchers published details on experiments where scalps and “full-thickness human skin” from aborted babies (18-20 weeks gestation) were grafted onto lab rats. Additionally, lymphoid tissue, livers, and spleens from the same aborted babies were co-engrafted into the same rodent models.

In the video clip above, I thanked Mr. Daleiden for his outstanding undercover video reporting that has exposed Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby parts and asked for his suggestions on the next steps that should be taken in terms of tougher enforcement and greater oversight authority for regulating fetal experimentation taking place across the Commonwealth.

The House Health Committee maintains legislative oversight over policies impacting abortion, abortion facilities and teen pregnancies.
 

UK rape gang victim, abused by hundreds of Muslim migrants, tells how she was dismissed by police, social workers

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

A Muslim rape gang victim, “Sarah,” tells the story of how hundreds of Pakistani Muslim men raped and abused her along with other girls in the “care system.” Social workers and “care” staff knew exactly what was going on, but did nothing. In fact, at 14, Sarah was scapegoated and blamed for her own rapes by social workers and ignored by police, as Muslim rape gangs continued to severely abuse the girls, pimp them out and traffick them.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CANADA: Rob Hoogland is freed from prison!

Rob Hoogland is freed from prison!

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

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

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

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

An angry judge and harsh punishment

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

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

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

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

A new attorney takes on the appeal!

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

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

Strict release order

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

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

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

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

In the prison

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

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

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

A letter from a Member of Parliament

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

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

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

High praise for MassResistance

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

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

Final thoughts

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

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

BY VICTORIA TAFT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See another video of the melee below.

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

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

Expect more clashes like this.

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

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

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

Mogadishu, here we come.

“Free Speech Is in Danger Today in America,” As Biden Becomes First President to Omit “God” from National Day of Prayer Proclamation

The Real Story-OANN: History of National Day of Prayer with Doug Wead

Rumble — Doug Wead, presidential advisor and author, gives us The Real Story on the history of The National Day of Prayer and how the Biden and Trump administrations have celebrated differently.

The Real Story-OANN: Prayer Cancelled in Biden’s America

Rumble — Biden completely omitted the word God from his proclamation on The National Day of Prayer. The Democrats forbid the public from honoring The National Day of Prayer with a prayer service at the Capitol, cancelling a 70-year old tradition. But that's not going to stop us from praying for them and our country.

President Joe Biden, who identifies as a devout Catholic, issued on Wednesday the annual proclamation of a National Day of Prayer, without mentioning any deity.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by the U.S. Congress, when people are asked “to turn to God in prayer and meditation.” The president is required by law (36 U.S.C. § 119) to sign a proclamation each year, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day.

The May 5 statement says that “throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance. Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans.”

“Today, we remember and celebrate the role that the healing balm of prayer can play in our lives and in the life of our Nation,” the Biden’s proclamation reads. “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.”

Additionally, the president attributed the creation of “a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations” to “the right of all Americans to pray” guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. 

It did not take long for many Americans to realize that Biden’s message, actually, did not include the word “God.” Neither “Jesus” nor “Bible” was mentioned. The most explicit remark Biden seemed to make related to God was, “Because human beings are the most dynamic link to the divine on this planet.” It remained unclear how this communicates with our unique beliefs as a Christian nation, because even pagan religions believe humans have a connection to the divine, including those who sustain this connection with animal and human sacrifices.

Biden included a quote from the late Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.), but couldn’t even bother referencing a Bible verse or Old or New Testament figures.

Historically, every proclamation since 1953 — the first year proclamations were required under law — had included “God” until this year. Most proclamations mentioned “God” multiple times.

Reverend Franklin Graham was shocked by Biden skipping the word “God.” “Of course we need to call on God — and not just some generic ‘gods’ or some ‘power’ in the air – but on God himself, the Creator who made and created this Earth and who sent his Son, Jesus Christ from Heaven to this Earth to save mankind from sin by dying on a cross.” “There is no one else to pray to except to God,” he added.

Conservative radio host Todd Starnes, author of God Less America, also weighed in on Biden’s omission. “Regarding Biden’s godless National Day of Prayer proclamation: The problem with the Democrats is that they don’t believe that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights,” he wrote on Twitter. “They believe we are endowed by the government.”

Christian Broadcasting Network’s Senior Political Analyst David Brody rebuked the speech, tweeting: “Joe Biden’s National Day of Prayer Proclamation has been released and it doesn’t even mention God once! How do you release a proclamation about prayer and not mention God at all? Of course it mentions climate change & racial justice. Truly, this is pathetic…and not surprising!”

In addition to Biden’s literally godless proclamation, an evangelical Christian group was denied use of the U.S. Capitol for prayer service for the first time in decades.

According to Christian Headlines, Reverend Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, was refused to host this year’s National Day of Prayer at the Capitol building. Following the refusal of a traditional request, Reverend Mahoney  tweeted: “After our permit was denied, for the first time in 70 years, there will be NO PUBLIC witness at the U.S. Capitol Building for the National Day Of Prayer! Brothers and sisters, free speech is in danger today in America.”

People of faith believe that there is a blessing and a great power that flows to those who pray. In our impotent humanity, we are blessed to be able to reach upward to God and know that He hears us. But anyone who prays needs to address the One he prays to, as described in John 14:13-14. Prayer requires addressing God directly, not only through the faith of Christianity, which arguably serves as the spiritual foundation of America, but in other major religions practiced among her citizens, such as JudaismIslamHinduism, and Buddhism

WHY WOULDN'T BIDEN SAY HIS NAME?

The White House Proclamation in Its Entirety

Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance. Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans.  Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.

The First Amendment to our Constitution protects the rights of free speech and religious liberty, including the right of all Americans to pray.  These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations.  

Today, we remember and celebrate the role that the healing balm of prayer can play in our lives and in the life of our Nation.  As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.  As the late Congressman John Lewis once said, “Nothing can stop the power of a committed and determined people to make a difference in our society.  Why?  Because human beings are the most dynamic link to the divine on this planet.”

On this National Day of Prayer, we unite with purpose and resolve, and recommit ourselves to the core freedoms that helped define and guide our Nation from its earliest days.  We celebrate our incredible good fortune that, as Americans, we can exercise our convictions freely — no matter our faith or beliefs.  Let us find in our prayers, however they are delivered, the determination to overcome adversity, rise above our differences, and come together as one Nation to meet this moment in history.

The Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a “National Day of Prayer.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 6, 2021, as a National Day of Prayer.  I invite the citizens of our Nation to give thanks, in accordance with their own faiths and consciences, for our many freedoms and blessings, and I join all people of faith in prayers for spiritual guidance, mercy, and protection.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.

Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Glenn Youngkin Blasts State’s “Woke” Culture in Education

Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Glenn Youngkin Blasts State’s “Woke” Culture in Education

A multi-millionaire, former chief executive of a private equity group, who has never held political office, is emerging as a top candidate for Virginia governor, as state Republicans prepare to nominate their candidate in the coming November election. Fifty-four-year-old Glenn Youngkin is one of seven Republicans hoping to secure the nomination during the state’s “drive-through” convention, which will take place at 37 locations throughout the state on May 8.

Youngkin hopes to be the GOP candidate to replace the current governor, the controversial Ralph Northam, a Democrat. His likely opponent from the Democrat side looks to be former Virginia governor and longtime Bill and Hillary Clinton associate Terry McAuliffe.

In Virginia, the governor is not allowed to serve consecutive terms, which is why Northam will definitely be out next January.

Youngkin had some harsh words for educators in the state who wish to bow to “woke” elements and remove accelerated and remedial math courses from the state’s schools, as well as teach critical race theory to students.

Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Tuesday, Youngkin lamented the direction that the Virginia Department of Education and some school districts in the state have taken in terms of teaching children.

“What they’re next onto is actually not awarding advanced diplomas to kids who have earned them in high school; to taking the Pledge of Allegiance and the Fourth of July out of the curriculum of things that actually bind us together, unite us as Americans and Virginians. And it just seems that Terry McAuliffe and the left, liberal Democrats here want to take our education policy from having everybody in the fast lane to putting everybody in the broken down lane,” Youngkin said.

“In education, they want to teach our kids what to think,” Youngkin said. “They want to teach them critical race theory and they want to take accelerated math out of the curriculum. “I want to teach our kids how to think, and not have critical race theory in the curriculum and, actually yes, teach accelerated math.”

The Virginia Mathematics Pathway Initiative (VMPI) — a joint project between the Virginia Department of Education, the State Council of Higher Education and the Virginia Community College System — is a proposal to “modernize” the state’s math curriculum. Among the proposals for “modernizing” the math curriculum is to do away with labels such as algebra and geometry and instead blend those courses “into a seamless progression of connected learning.” Instead of the labels for certain types of math, the schools would simply refer to them all as “essential concepts.”

Although state officials have denied that the proposal does away with the various levels of math, many parents in the state are still concerned about much of the language in the VMPI’s proposal.

As for critical race theory being taught, nowhere is that concept more in the news than the Loudon County School District, where teachers have been told to “disrupt and dismantle this systemic racism,” that allegedly occurs throughout America.

According to Youngkin, the reason he quit his high-paying job at private equity giant the Carlyle Group — which reportedly earned him $254 million over the years — and decided to run for governor was that he “could not recognize his home state of Virginia,” after ten years of Democrat rule.

“This is exactly what we’re seeing from the Democrats and particularly Terry McAuliffe is that they’re on the wrong side of every issue.”

“I’m homegrown and I love the commonwealth of Virginia,” Youngkin said. “I was so frustrated with the Republican Party because the Republican Party had not mounted a winning campaign in over ten years. So I left my job and prepared to run for governor.”

While seven GOP candidates are in the running for the nomination on Saturday, election observers believe that it’s really a four-person race with Youngkin, State Senator Amanda Chase, State Representative Kirk Cox, and entrepreneur Pete Snyder.

Chase is actively courting Trump supporters, calling herself “Trump in heels.” Cox appears to be the favorite of the GOP establishment, and Snyder, who is portraying himself as a political outsider, has been endorsed by former Trump officials Sarah Sanders and Ken Cuccinelli. Youngkin, who just snagged an endorsement from prominent GOP Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), is also running as a political outsider, despite being a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the establishment powerhouse that has exercised extraordinary influence over government policy for generations.

Anti-BLM Parent: America Won’t “Survive Teaching Our Children to Hate Their Country and Their History”

Anti-BLM Parent: America Won’t “Survive Teaching Our Children to Hate Their Country and Their History”

George Santayana’s famous saying “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” requires some delineation:

  • Those who cannot remember the triumphs of the past are likely condemned not to repeat them, and
  • Those who are told the mistakes of the past were triumphs will repeat them.

New York City parent Andrew Gutmann understands this well. Gutmann, who attracted national attention by issuing a now-viral letter addressed to Brearley School parents warning of the institution’s fatal race obsession, has sounded another alarm.

“We already do a horrific job in this country teaching history, and now we’re going to make that 10 times worse, we’re going to eradicate that,” the father told Fox News in a new interview.

“Our country doesn’t survive not teaching history and civics, and it sure as hell doesn’t survive teaching our children to hate their country and their history.” 

Gutmann is correct: What he warned of regarding posh private school Brearly, which he pulled his daughter from recently after seven years’ attendance, is a nationwide phenomenon.

Moreover, the Critical Race Theory obsession now sweeping academia — which teaches hatred of whites, America, and Western culture — is just the latest iteration of the Howard Zinn-aided, Gramscian march through the institutions that began many, many decades ago.

Gutmann said in his interview that Brearly parents — who pay $54,000-yearly tuition for the indoctrination — and their children were pressured by the school to become Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists.

This is despite BLM being a neo-Marxist organization whose members once chanted that they want “dead cops.” The group also demands the abolition of police; the “repeal of all immigration restrictions”; “the legalization of sex work”; “the destruction of the Western-prescribed nuclear family”; and, according to a report last year by commentator Tucker Carlson, “the forced reallocation of farmland” (à la Zimbabwe).

Tellingly, some of these toxic positions were featured on BLM’s website — until the group gained greater institutional acceptance and removed its older “Guiding Principles” page so it could masquerade as palatable. (The original page can still be found via an archiving service here.)

Yet many American schools are now taking a leaf from BLM’s book. As for Brearly, Gutmann says that the school “made it sound like they’re going to integrate this racial curriculum, this anti-racism curriculum, into everything — every class, into math, into gym, P.E.; it was shocking that they were taking that degree of integrating it into everything.”

Note that this is a hallmark of “ideological nations,” where the official state ideology is “pervasive,” to use a word Gutmann did when describing BLM racialism’s dominance at Brearly.

The father also mentioned that the Left’s new “Silence is violence” mentality reigns at the school. If “you just stay silent, you’re racist,” he lamented. “You have to be an activist for that. If you’re not an activist for an anti-racism initiative, for Black Lives Matter, for example, you are racist, you are a bad person, you are an oppressor, you are not doing the right thing.”

You can watch clips of Gutmann’s interview here. His original letter, which is quite compelling, was related in the video below.

One of the most striking things about the Critical Race Theory phenomenon is how unintellectual its embrace is. It basically originated last Tuesday (figuratively speaking), but “educators” coast to coast behave as if it’s enlightening, timeless brilliance from on high.

It’s a fad, and its popularity reflects a deeper problem: The prevalence of “changeist,” immature moderns who treasure the spirit of the age over the ageless, who prefer “Thursday over Wednesday because it is Thursday,” as G.K. Chesterton put it. Detached from and not believing in Truth, they’ll embrace a lie as long as it’s the latest thing on the cocktail-party circuit.

Today’s anti-American racialist lie is a destructive one, too. Author George Orwell once noted that the “most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” This is now a fait accompli in America.

When I worked with kids, I once asked a small group of them who the “Father of America” was. Their answer wasn’t George Washington — it was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. These were upper-class white children, too.

Then there was the 14-year-old I was instructing in religious education who, I discovered, hadn’t heard of Adolf Hitler. Both these incidents occurred 15 to 20 years ago, too, do note.

Now, question: If you don’t know much about American history’s arguably most important figure or are ignorant of the 20th-century’s most notorious one, what of historical importance do you know?

Studies indicate that American youth don’t know much. This matters because, harking back to my opening lines, history is essentially a record of a series of man’s social experiments. And it’s as with a scientist: He remains mindful of his field’s record of experiments so that he can say, “Oh, we tried that before and it didn’t work” or “Yes, that bore fruit; we should now build upon it.”

Of course, though, if children know nothing of history, you can easily feed them a revisionist version of it and make them think that good was bad and bad, good. And now you know part of the reason why a 2020 poll found that “70 percent of Millennials say they are likely to vote for a socialist while one in three view communism favorably,” as Campus Reform reported last year.  

Moreover, “22 percent of millennials believe ‘society would be better if all private property was abolished,’” the site also related.

And this is what happens when good history and virtue are abolished. But what needs to be abolished is any curriculum reflecting so-called “leftism” and any educator advocating it. Unless there’s a patriotic march through the institutions that tramples Gramsci’s ghost, what remains of the American spirit will be relegated to the grave.   

Border In Chaos: 17 Texas Counties Declare Emergencies, Border Patrol Dismantles Multiple Human Smuggling Operations

Earlier this week, PJ Media was the first to report that 12 Texas counties have declared emergencies due to the chaos the Biden border policies are causing. Since then, we have learned that four more counties have declared emergencies, bringing the total to 17. The additional counties that have or are set to declare emergencies are Davis, Medina, Terrell, Val Verde, and Live Oak. The land area these counties cover includes regions well away from the border and is larger than many whole states.

The Border Patrol continues doing what it can, with no policy help from Washington, to stem the tide of human trafficking that has exploded across the border. In a Facebook post, the Laredo Sector of the Border Patrol reports that it busted three human smuggling sites in half a day.

Yesterday, within a span of 12 hours, #USBP Laredo Sector agents working with Laredo Police Department, Webb-County Constable Pct 2, and federal law enforcement partners, discovered and dismantled three residential properties throughout Laredo that were being utilized as human smuggling stash houses. The discovery led to the arrest of over 180 undocumented individuals who were found in deplorable conditions. These apprehensions were a result of a collaborative effort between Border Patrol and our partners who work diligently to stop the housing of large numbers of undocumented individuals in our communities.

The stash houses were discovered in the south, central, and north Laredo. This shows that all areas of the city are being affected by these transnational criminal organizations.

One residence was discovered in north Laredo near a church and the Laredo Country Club. Packed inside were 65 undocumented individuals.

A second stash house was located in central Laredo near a school. A total of 68 undocumented individuals were arrested at that location.

The third stash house was found in southeast Laredo near a city park. After searching the property, 50 undocumented individuals were found throughout the residential property.

Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Carl E. Landrum said, “All of the people rescued from these stash houses were being held against their will. Human Smuggling/Trafficking are dangerous situations. Please help others by reporting suspicious situations you see; you just might save a life.”

Ranchers and residents continue to report bailouts and finding abandoned backpacks full of clothing and other items on their property daily. This photo was taken earlier this week in La Salle county by rancher Stephanie Crisp-Canales, who was interviewed on this week’s C’Mon Now! show.

These clothes are not typical of what one would wear for an arduous walk across an entire country. They are typical of what Texans are seeing abandoned on their property.

At the same time, the Washington Examiner reports that the Biden administration is holding more than five times the number of unaccompanied children the Trump administration held when it was accused of having a “humanitarian crisis” with “concentration camps” on the border.

Nearly 25,000 migrant children were in the custody of the government, apart from their families, in early May.

The number of unaccompanied migrant children in the federal government’s care is at an all-time high, easily eclipsing the corresponding total in 2018 when the Trump administration pursued a policy that led to the intentional separation of children from their families, eliciting major controversy.

The situation underscores the severity of the crisis facing President Joe Biden early in his administration and the moral quandary he faces.

Biden continues blaming the problem on President Trump, despite the incontrovertible fact that Biden publicly ended Trump’s border policies in his first days in office.
